Jupiter in Capricorn

Jupiter in Capricorn: The Credit Card Bill in January

On 2 December 2019 at 6:20 pm GMT, Jupiter ingresses (moves) into Capricorn. If you have Jupiter in Capricorn then you have a “Jupiter return” this year. So it’s a bit like a birthday–only a Jupiter birthday only happens once every 12 years. To celebrate, my gift to you is an excerpt from my book “Growing Pains: Astrology in Education”. In stages of development, Jupiter reveals how we take the leap of faith it takes to learn new information. This can be used to help teachers present new material to students and to help parents understand how to support this […]

The Astrology of the Club of 27

This article was part of the front page for the ‘Club of 27’ webpage in 2005. It was the result of a presentation at the Astrological Lodge of London featuring the astrology of the 1960s and “Club of 27” members. The astrology charts of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain were discussed. Amy Winehouse, who died in 2013, was a later, tragic addition. The webpage must have inspired the editors of Wikipedia as they featured a ’27 Club’ page—sans astrology of course. Later that year, the Serbian astrology magazine Astrologus published the presentation. The editors then […]

Barry Manilow

The song “Read ‘Em and Weep” came out in 1983. (Barry Manilow did it way better than Meatloaf had done a few years before. That’s why Barry’s version made it to #18 in the Billboard Hot 100 and Meatloaf’s did not. Read that and weep, Meatloaf fans). As with anyone else, the astrology of Barry Manilow tells a fascinating tale. Barry’s “A” Rodden Rating birth chart indicates he was born on 17 June, 1943 at 9:00 in Brooklyn New York. With Jupiter in Cancer, he would naturally want to learn by extending himself emotionally. He could only take risks if he felt […]

Childhood Education: A study by a teacher and astrologer

This article on astrology and education originally appeared in Dell Horoscope, the world’s leading astrology magazine. My new article “When a Flower Speaks” appears in the May/June 2018 issue. Dismissed for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and miniscule databases, modern day astrologers are often ridiculed by their skeptics. Can astrologers step up to the scientific plate or will they go down with the pseudoscience ship? In my role as a schoolteacher, the bias against being an astrologer was so great that I was actually threatened with dismissal should any parent complain about my interests in the subject. As I […]

Astrology Research

End of Season for Cherry Picking

Astrology Research that engages sceptics is very rare. If it does exist, then Astrologers are dismissed by their critics for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and minuscule databases. I wanted to address these criticisms and show other astrologers how they can too. This first hand version of the events leading up to publication of my research on adolescent behaviour and lunar phases appeared in the Autumn equinox 2017 edition of The Career Astrologer published by The Organization for Professional Astrologers and is posted here with grateful permission. My research into adolescent behaviour and lunar phases first made the astrology headlines with […]

Algol and the British Royal Family

All Change in the House of Windsor?

With things heating up with the Prince Andrew scandal, I thought it might be time for a little update on this article. Because, wouldn’t you know it, Prince Andrew has his natal Moon opposite to Algol and the Sun is about to transit it! Thank you to Victor Olliver for pointing this out! I had been steadfastly ignoring Andrew for years, not really considering him a key player in the Royal Family once William started having children. Perhaps more startling is that on the night of Prince Andrew’s pizza-dinner-with-his-daughter-evening, Saturn was conjunct Algol! And Koo “I can vouch for Andrew” […]
