The World Mourns and Stands With You, UK, June 3, 2017, Part 2

This begins astrologer John Davenport‘s part of the article. I have done minor edits for cohesiveness while retaining the precise meaning John has intended. The choice of additional graphics in the form of art and videos was mine. Some charts used are repeats of those I used in Part 1. They’ve been repeated for continuity

The World Mourns and Stands With You, UK – June 3, 2017, Part 1

The Talmud says, “Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.” (Mishnah Sanhedrin, chapter 4) ) I thought about these words last night.

Who Needs the Soaps?

I used to think the drama of a few daily soaps on TV made real life carry a bit less of the “wow!” factor. That’s what got me hooked on two soaps several years ago–and they still catch my attention in particular when I’m home. It doesn’t really matter if a month of soap opera

It’s A Boy! (A brief, fun news item with a chart)

At 38 minutes of age, April’s youngest calf stood successfully. A few tries to get the hang of it were enough for me to realize I was catching my breath in anticipation his learning to balance on the spindly little legs on which he will make his way in life. Now imagine this: I live

Saturn Direct: Taking Care of Business!

Since I always work with the UK chart in articles like this one as the first of the three nations–UK, USA, India–on which I focus. As always, my chart for the transit of Saturn stationary direct is placed in Greenwich, UK, where we find the Royal Observatory at the Prime Meridian. I’ve always seen Saturn-ruled

The World Tapestry: Did the World Just Implode??? Part 2

As I move into this new section of the article from part 1, I find it especially telling to see today’s Moon now triggering the Mercury-Mars perfected square set for tomorrow. I won’t analyze the chart but you might enjoy seeing it because it’s clearly partile: Since I’ll only post this one chart for the

The World Tapestry: Did the World Just Implode??? Part 1

“Life pops up in the weirdest, most unexpected places,” said author James Leo Herlihy. With that in mind, please bear with my writing in what will appear to be a disjointed ramble. There is method to my madness. Some weeks ago, Rob Brezsny posted a cute photo of an iguana with a butterfly on its head.

The World Tapestry: Mayhem in Munich

July 22, 2016: I was feeling oddly devoid of emotion this afternoon and couldn’t figure out why. That’s not me. I had been examining the charts for Uranus’ station to Retrograde set for exactly one week from today–the 29th of July–and had created the chart for the UK with this in mind. The first thing
