Moon – Pluto: the Gathering Storm

Recently I wrote an extensive article on the key tenets of Sun-Pluto contacts. Today I would like to discuss in similar depth, the themes of Moon’s application to the Lord Hades, its effects being less outwardly manifest, but absolutely as far-reaching and powerful. The same quality of course will permeate the astrology of anyone born… Read More

The mighty empire of Rome was under almost continual attack throughout its great history, usually at the barbarian frontiers, far… Read More

Alan Watts, peregrination and the Uranus principle

Today I wanted to look at some of the astrological themes of spirituality and religious thought in a specific case; and since I don’t really have any work today I am going to take a glance at the chart of a man, who for me, embodied some of the highest principles in human understanding of… Read More
