World Tapestry: India – Assam Train Explosion

An explosion in an intercity train coach in the northeastern Indian state of Assam today has left up to 14 people injured, one critically.

India and Pakistan – The 2018 Solar Returns in 3 parts, part 3

Part 3 This paragraph is copied from an article I have in progress, but it fits here as well since it’s part of the Solar Return. I’ll finish the article after this one is posted. “On the 11th of September, the Midheaven of the Solar Return had progressed to 22 Aries 31, squaring the 22

India and Pakistan – The 2018 Solar Returns in 3 parts, part 2

Part 2 India I won’t linger with a new lead in since I’d intended the two returns this time to be joined to avoid my concern about having the two separated by several days. While India’s SR also opens with the third house rising, India’s chart was created at a time a bit later than

India and Pakistan – The 2018 Solar Returns in 3 parts, part 1

Part 1 My apologies, dear readers, for the lengthy delay in offering forecasts and more articles over the last roughly 15-16 months or so. It was beyond my control. While I have more to do before I’m on the other side of a health issue, you’ve been on my mind. I’m writing as I can

Breaking News: Supreme Court of India Strikes Down 150-Year-Old Anti-Gay Law

Just a quick comment to explain that I began to write this article immediately after the news came out yesterday afternoon. As a result, I may not have caught all of the references to “today,” referring to the 6th of September as I post this now on the 7th. My apologies. I want to get

Closing In On the Golden State Killer

Soon after Joseph James DeAngelo Jr., was arrested as the Golden State Killer in April, one comment after another began to open discussions in several Facebook groups and I’m sure elsewhere as well. After some time, I saw a brilliantly researched reference to the data I’d hoped to find–or rather the untimed data with the

Envisioning and Reflecting, and Somehow It All Comes Together

I sit here on the morning of what the media are calling the “first Super Blue Blood Moon Trifecta since 1866,” shaking my head a bit at the word they missed–“eclipse.” But then how many types of “first” can you say in tandem before that mouthful reaches the point of the absurd? Perhaps this is

Eggnog Riot of 1826

Over the last month, despite several personal challenges–packing, moving, trying to unpack while still doing the normal stuff one needs to do in the midst of chaos, working on the laptop while my desktop was in the shop in a futile effort to save the very dead 3/4 TB hard drive two days before the

Mayhem and Murder in Manhattan

Every day, somewhere in the world, we see accidents, murders, arguments, skirmishes or outright war between people and their nations. That much doesn’t usually surprise any of us, I’m sure. But when an attack in New York City that has come from a green-card carrying foreign national who has been in the United States for

World Tapestry: From Mumbai 2008 to Las Vegas 2017

Mumbai, India Somewhere in the Sunday night blur of news on the October 1 Las Vegas attack, I heard a reporter make a one-time reference to the 2008 nights of terror in Mumbai. Perhaps the reference didn’t connect with others. For me, it stood out above all the rest even though I don’t even remember
