Post-Depression Worlds

Looking back at events in the 1930’s, you wonder how the world slid into war and why countries could not see the writing on the wall. But living in those times, nothing seemed clear and most experts got it wrong. The British and French governments, under Chamberlain and Daladier, were convinced that appeasement in relation to Franco, Mussolini and Hitler was the wiser course, and only lone voices like Winston Churchill’s stood out for a more muscular stance. Astrologers in Britain predicted that war would not come, whilst one astronomer said that with the unusual alignment of planets in the early 1940’s, if astrology was supposed to work, war should be a possibility.

It appears that people with this predilection despise weakness in others, much as their own weakness was focused upon in their upbringing. (Note 1) Read More

Dynamic Horary Astrology – Part 3/4

It may seem revolutionary to say that the horary chart for the consultation is an essential part of the consultation process, but this chart has been part of tradition throughout the whole history of astrology. William Lilly was more apt to use the consultation chart than the birth horoscope, as were many other practitioners historically, if only because the date and time were sure, which was not the case with many births. In India, the Hora Shastra horoscope for the time of the consultation is used extensively by astrologers, when details of the birth are not known. Read More
