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

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 And now the Pluto station to Retrograde for the United Kingdom… With Leo rising, the Sun rules the Pluto SRx chart from its 9th house conjunction to Mercury Rx. Neither it nor Mars are really at the

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 In contrast to the crash chart from earlier in the day, this one had a clearly Eastern first quadrant below-the-horizon dominance. At first, I was baffled about this kind of dominance since the action was happening to my 16-yo co-traveler and me; but then it hit me: I

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 of 3

Sometime around Easter, I had promised someone I’d write about the Pluto Retrograde that took place on Thursday the 20th of April. But as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men–or, as Robert Burns wrote in “To A Mouse”… While the narration may seem a bit convoluted, there is method to

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

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

Nurture & Heal: Mars Ingress to Sagittarius & the New Moon

The hours close from the 1st of August 2016 to the second, and we begin the hour-by-hour march from Mars in Scorpio to Mars’ ingress to Sagittarius once again as I begin this article. I usually start my ingress charts with a look to the UK since that’s where the Royal Observatory at Greenwich is

The World Tapestry: Did the World Just Implode??? Part 3

Part 1 Part 2 Moving on now to the United States chart with the Uranus Station to Retrograde… The Western, third quadrant, above-the-horizon dominance comes into play with the Uranus Rx chart for the United States, pointing to the emphasis on relationships in a very public way. I have no doubt of Jupiter as the chart

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
