The Amazing World of Lies

For those who like to see a good lie, the months of February and March 2013 has been a wonderful time because of the antics of Mercury, which we will take a look at later. Of course the best liar in the world was Mercury, who as Hermes, could speak and create mischief from the moment he was born and as a baby famously stole Apollo’s herd of cattle and lied about it. We’ve been pretty much doing the same thing ever since.  On any given day one in ten verbal interactions with a spouse contains a lie, and if you think that’s bad, if we are just have a girlfriend or boyfriend, one in every three verbal interactions is a lie. Men lie predominately to cover up something about themselves, whilst women lie predominantly to cover up something about someone else.  Studies have shown that strangers lie three times within the first 10 minutes of meeting (Note 1).

Sun Sign astrology


Sun Sign astrology is a much-maligned branch of astrology. How can people be grouped into 12 categories and have generalisations made about them? Many people – and many astrologers – ridicule the idea. Yet much simpler generalizations exist and are accepted. What about naive generalizations about being “introvert” or “extrovert”. Or about being “typically” American, French, Indian etc. Read More

The Future of America

On November 6th 2012 the future of America will be decided by the clash of Democrats and Republicans, as Barak Obama seeks to stave off the challenge of Republican candidate Mitt Romney. At the time of writing the population of the USA is evenly split. Republicans are determined to reverse the health care legislation that was the crowning achievement of Obama’s first presidential period, claiming that forcing people to buy health insurance is just another tax. In a country historically suspicious of government interference, the view amongst Republicans is that people should be free to choose. Read More

Your Age – Part Two: Planetary Cycles

In the previous article on this subject, I examined predictable changes that would happen for people just because of their age. Knowing a person’s age means that you know the year of birth, and – perhaps with a little help from the planetary ephemeris – you will then know the sign positions of the outer planets and nodes. When the planet aspects itself at a specific age, then changes will take place according to the sign (and house) position of this planet. For example, I have Uranus in Cancer in the 9th house, and when I was 20 – 21 and Uranus squared its birth position, I was traveling in India and my wife-to-be gave birth to our son there… the creation of a family abroad.

The Future of the Euro

New Year’s Day may have been good once, but it is not so any more. In the current decade it is the political and economic hangovers that weigh heavy as the year begins… and will continue to do so for several years into the future. There may be a temptation to start something new on New Year’s Day, but it would be inadvisable to do it from 2012 to 2015, because the Uranus/Pluto cycle will consistently be square the sun which is always at 10 degrees Capricorn on January 1st. Pluto will reach this degree in February 2013 and Uranus squares this position in May in the same year… and a long time will elapse before these transits have passed. Furthermore a horoscope for New Year’s Eve will almost always have about 1 – 10 degrees Libra in the Ascendant and 1 – 10 degrees Capricorn on the IC for western countries in the northern hemisphere, which means that Uranus conjoins the Descendant and Pluto the IC for all these countries.
