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. They seemed so fitting, it felt right for this article this

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

The Man and The Maths: Srinivasa Ramanujan

Last week, quite by accident, I came across a movie I might not have even bothered to watch. But who can resist Dev Patel especially when you haven’t yet seen “Lion,” another flick I’ve been hoping to see soon? Filmed in India and the UK, the scenery alone was marvelous. Patel plays the role divinely all the

The World Tapestry: Play Ball! Up Close and Local–and International!

Baseball has been pretty popular in this part of upstate New York. Two of my uncles, nicknamed Spider and Little Spider, played semi-pro ball, and the last thing my father did on the day he died was attend a ballgame of the Triplets, the farm team for one of the big leagues. If you were

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

The World Tapestry: Orlando Massacre – Terror and the World Family, Part 3 of 3

Part 1 Part 2  Out of the depths I called unto you, come Your return shall rekindle the spark in my eyes Neither done nor forsaken the touch of your hand To the sound of your laughter shall glow here again Out of the depths I called unto you, come ‘neath a moon that shines

The World Tapestry: Orlando Massacre – Terror and the World Family, Part 2 of 3

Repeating the chart from Part 1 in use now as we move into Part 2: I also debated about calling the semisextile between 9th house Saturn and 10th house Pluto an aspect. To be sure, most of the time I’d balk and vehemently resist calling this a semisextile with its 4°22′ orb. But the midpoint of this

The World Tapestry: Orlando Massacre – Terror and the World Family, Part 1 of 3

June 12: As I start to write what will obviously be another large article and probably a series, the American flag flying over all public buildings including military facilities, naval vessels, the White House, and consulates has been lowered to half-staff in memory of the 50 who died in the wee hours this morning in
