Using Astrology

The articles in this section are focused on techniques for interpretation and how those techniques are applied. This includes approaches from different types of astrological practice. It also includes questions that astrologers find themselves confronted with when they select a particular technique.

While you cannot say that certain chart patterns will always show up the same in every person's life, sometimes two people can show striking similarities. Such is the case with mass murderers Andreas Lubitz and James Holmes. When I saw news of the tragic crash into the Swiss Alps of the Germanwings flight that killed 150 in March of 2015, I was saddened and later horrified because news reports said that the young co-pilot in charge, Andreas Lubitz, crashed the plane intentionally. As an astrologer, I quickly ran a chart for Lubitz’ reported birth date to better understand the tragic…
The Enduring Legacy of 1984 The prophetic English writer George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair, died shortly after his terrifying classic 1984 was published almost seventy years ago. His best-selling book Animal Farm had been published a few years earlier. In January of 2017, Orwell’s novel 1984 jumped to the head of best-seller lists coincident with the inauguration of President Trump. There was also a theatrical adaptation playing on Broadway. 1984 had been considered prophetic in its depiction of an extreme “surveillance state”. Most recently, in this time of “alternative facts” and “fake media”, we are struck by Orwell’s depiction of…

Note: This articles gives an example of a delineation using the sideral zodiac. Eclipses have always played an important role in human history. They have decided over  battles, over the fate of emperors. In this article I will try to link an eclipse to an enlightenment event, of Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950), the great advaita teacher of India. More than 65 years after his death, he still is an inspiration to many spiritual seekers, in both the east and the west. The techniques used here are a combination of parans (star and planets at the same time on one of the…
Malcolm and Martin Each year, we in the United States will celebrate Martin Luther King Day in mid-January and the following month is Black History month, originally a week to coincide with the founding of the NAACP in 1909. Had Malcolm X lived today – he was assassinated in 1965 – he would be horrified at a Martin Luther King Day, thinking it a feeble attempt by white people to make themselves feel better. His version of Black History Month would have been edgier than the media events usually featured during this time. A well-known quote among many: “We didn’t…
