Astrology and Statistics

by Adrian Duncan on April 6, 2016 in Articles with No comments

Astrology is tricky. Just when you think you have a solid and reliable interpretation, things change. Interpretation in astrology is like trying to hit a moving target, and that moving target is Time itself. Perhaps this is why trying to come up with scientific or statistical results, which prove astrology, is such a challenge. One

PREDICTIONS FOR A NEW AGE

by Adrian Duncan on March 13, 2016 in Articles with No comments

A few centuries ago, the only way people travelled through the air, was when they foolishly fell off mountains or high buildings. Imagine the astonishment and awe then, when the Montgolfier brothers staged the first manned balloon flight in front of Louis XV1 of France in Versailles on September 19th 1783. “Manned” may not be

TRENDS FOR 2016

by Adrian Duncan on January 26, 2016 in Articles with No comments

Looking back at 2015 we can see that some of the extremism we witnessed from 2011 – 2014 connected with the rare set of tense interactions between Uranus and Pluto (something that last took place in the 1930’s) abated, even though there were and still are extreme manifestations of the ideologically extreme views, which this

Compassion Tsunami

by Adrian Duncan on September 22, 2015 in Articles with No comments

You probably know the feeling. You build your castle of sand by the seaside, but the tide begins to approach your carefully built walls and parapets. Your next smart move is to build a mote. It fills up. You strengthen your walls. But it is all to no avail. Water will always find the lowest

Donald Trump… and the rest

by Adrian Duncan on August 21, 2015 in Articles with No comments

Could the Republicans possibly be better placed ahead of the November 2016 presidential elections? The Democrats have been severely damaged in the 2014 mid-term elections, when they lost control of the Senate and when the Republicans won another 25 seats in Congress to have an unassailable majority. After two terms of a Democratic presidency, USA

Freedom of Speech

by Adrian Duncan on August 10, 2015 in Articles with No comments

They say the pen is mightier than the sword. The powers that be have feared satirists for centuries, and there have been many attempts to bully them into silence. In the 18th century, Voltaire, who for a period had to live in exile in London, was one of the most famous, renowned for ridiculing the

No Border Can Stand

by Adrian Duncan on August 10, 2015 in Articles with No comments

Planets and Sign Borders Throughout history, countries have vigorously protected their borders, and travellers had to have their papers in order if they wanted to leave one country and enter another. It is always a nervous process, as anyone who has entered the USA from abroad will know. You’ve travelled far, and it would be

Ed Miliband for PM?

by Adrian Duncan on March 12, 2015 in Articles with No comments

It would be a strange thing if you could predict the result of elections. All that rushing around canvassing voters, all that money spent on adverts, all the passionate debates – these would be unnecessary. Fortunately polls and pundits (and astrologers) get their predictions wrong all the time, so elections continue to make life interesting.

Putin the Great

by Adrian Duncan on February 23, 2015 in Articles with No comments

You shouldn’t get the wrong idea about Vladimir Putin. Russians love him, and that’s good. Isn’t it? The most reliable poll in Russia from the Levada Center measured his popularity at 83% after the annexation of Crimea, whilst back in 2013 it was at a record low of 30%. (Note 1) It seems fair to

ISIL and beyond

by Adrian Duncan on October 16, 2014 in Articles with No comments

There is nothing like the feeling that things are out of control to bring on a few nervous tics, and right now it seems not much is going right for the world, seen from a Western cultural perspective. As we approach the last two clashes between those otherworldly planets, Uranus and Pluto, it seems their
