Whitney bowed out in 2012

Whitney Houston

Many factors contribute to the astrological story. This sketch on Whitney Houston focuses on Jupiter and Saturn. Whitney Houston was born into a loving musical family and achieved incredible success. Still she could not escape the nightmare of addiction. Houston was born on 9 August 1963 at 20:55 in Newark New Jersey (Rodden Rating: AA; Collector: Rodden). She had Jupiter in Aries and Saturn in Aquarius. Whitney Houston was one of the most successful music artists of all-time. She achieved the rare feat of being popular with both white and black audiences. Readily available information around Whitney’s early childhood is sparse […]

Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror

“Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror” was  originally published in “The International Astrologer”, Aries 2009 issue for ISAR.  It was re-published in “Astrology Quarterly”, (Vol. 79, No 2) for The Astrological Lodge of London The article was updated in late 2016 with a corrected chart for the discovery of Uranus for an astrology lecture in Portugal and was re-formated on 14 May 2018, the day before Uranus ingressed into the sign or Taurus. “We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon […]

Alex Trenoweth, Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman: Song of Myself

Walt Whitman was born on 31 May 1819 at 1:45 am (Rodden Rating: A; Collector: Rodden) in Huntington New York with Jupiter in Aquarius and Saturn in Pisces. I have often said there is usually wonderful synastry between a fan and their idol. There is no disappointment here! This Walt Whitman lover shares her ascendent with Whitman’s Sun, the same Moon and Saturn degree and natal Venus in opposition to “The Good Gray Poet’s” Neptune!!   However, I will have to concede that Abraham Lincoln  (12 February 1809, 6:54 Hodgenville KY, Rodden rating: B; Collector: Rodden), the object of Walt […]

Solstice 2018, Rumi

Happy Solstice 2018

It’s the Winter Solstice 2018 for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere. Wherever you are, the solstices are not only astronomically important but important markers in human life as well. Personally, I’ve always used the solstices to to reflect on what I’ve achieved and make new goals and targets. Everyone always says how quickly the year has passed. So much has happened this year that I look back on it in absolute awe. I’ll be posting the yearly horoscopes soon so be sure to pop back in. I’ve […]

"In Cold Blood"

In Cold Blood: the Book that Shocked America

“In Cold Blood” was written by the American author Truman Capote. The book became one of the first “non fiction novels” and detailed the horrific murder of the Clutter family in 1959. Completed in 1966, just after the execution of the perpetrators, “In Cold Blood” was an instant bestseller. Arguably, Capote also made the two murderers, Richard Hickok and Perry Smith posthumously famous. However, Capote was condemned for using the gruesome details of the murders to bring attention to his book. More recently, “In Cold Blood” has been criticised for its inaccurate portrayal of the Clutter family. This article examines the […]

13 Things Astrologers Wish Muggles Understood about astrology

13 Things Astrologers Wish Muggles Understood About Astrology

I meet a lot of people who, for a wide variety of reasons, dislike astrology. I don’t care too much about this. But I do care that I find myself answering the same questions over and over again. So on one of those nights that I should have been sleeping, I tossed and turned and came up with 13 things astrologers wish muggles understood about astrology. Then I figured a lot of other astrologers might also be tired of answering the same questions. So, being the nice person I am, I decided to write them down. Without further ado. . […]

Jupiter in Sagittarius

I had this great idea for Jupiter in Sagittarius. Publishing a sample chapter of “Growing Pains”. I mean, after all, Jupiter is associated with publishing. I thought this would be a very straightforward cut and paste job. After checking it was OK with my publisher (The Wessex Astrologer), I realised it might not be so easy. Just for starters, those pesky ingress dates (the ones that just about drove us insane in the second edit), could not be simply cut and pasted. So I had to do a screen grab and hope it is clear enough to be read. And […]

Nakshatras

A Nakshatra Story

Nakshatras. Not too long ago, Nakshatras were beyond my understanding. Or so I thought. . . When I was doing the FAS diploma, I forbade myself from taking any other astrology course until I finished the diploma. It nearly drove me crazy but since completing the course a couple of years ago, I’ve done a course on Hellenistic astrology and took Deb Houlding’s horary and electional courses. Still thirsty, I’ve been eyeing up Vedic astrology. I don’t think we live in a world where astrologers can afford to be separated. We need to understand each other in order to endure […]
