You can totally rely on your knowledge and intuition. Astrologers — regardless of whether they do in-person, phone, typed or recorded readings — need to have that …

False Prophets?

On November 5, 1996 the US electorate went to the polls to elect their new President. No doubt, the psychics were gazing into their crystal balls and the astrologers were assessing their astrological charts to find out who was going to win. It was a two horse race and it would have been a fairly safe bet to predict that …

Drive: A Scorpionic-kind-of-movie

Drive, the recent movie which came out starring Ryan Gosling, is dripping with astrological symbolism, albeit inadvertently. Throughout the movie, he wears a gold bomber jacket with a gigantic Scorpio emblem on the back (somehow he still affords to be sexy). At first, I thought the director (Hossein Amini) might be dialed into the transformative power of the corresponding Zodiac …

Venus-Pluto “Dangerous Beauty”

Ever wonder what would happen if Venus, the goddess of love and sex, set up shop in one of the most Catholic cities in Medieval Europe?

Career Significators In Astrology

Astrologers traditionally look to the tenth house in a chart for indications of the career path an individual will take.

Book Reviews – Understanding Aspects: The Inconjunct and The Sextile By Alan Epstein

I am a student, and began a search for any information available regarding YOD configurations for a research project. I found only limited information and it would seem to me that the Yod has not warranted in-depth study, perhaps because it is a nebulous figure in itself or because it is considered a minor aspect. This was very frustrating as …

Using Astrology to Become Prosperous

Ten Steps to Prosperity is based on the idea that the amount of money in the bank – or investment or pension fund – is not the whole story. Financial health is probably better defined in terms of our attitude towards the money we have rather than the absolute amount of money. And just as a company may have invisible …

If I’m under great stress, I can’t look at a chart. It doesn’t feel comfortable if you are going through a difficult time. – Komilla Sutton The nervous and fearful should leave Astrology strictly alone, said Charles E. O. Carter.

Lost Flowers – the Deflowering of Persephone

The vi’lets from her lap, and lillies fall: She misses ’em, poor heart! and makes new moan; Her lillies, ah! are lost, her vi’lets gone.

The 12 Laws of the Universe

If you’ve been alive on Planet Earth for the last 10 years, you’ve surely heard about The Secret phenomenon, the Law of Attraction, and the plethora of on-going discussions about how (and from some people, if) this concept of “attracting” really works.

An Astrological Approach to Dream Interpretation

When I first began recording my dreams and trying to interpret them – many years ago – I thought they were so absurd and strange and seemed to follow no apparent rules, that I often despaired of ever finding any meaning in them at all. Occasionally I would give up, but the dreams would inevitably call me back. At the …
