The Future of Iraq

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with Comments Off on The Future of Iraq

Saddam Hussein had an unhappy childhood. He was born in the total poverty typical of rural villages near Tikrit, north of Baghdad. His father died or left the family soon after birth, and he was brought up by his mother and a brutal criminal stepfather, who relentlessly beat his stepson and forced him to steal.

A Wise Whale

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

I knew a woman once who met a whale. Becalmed in the vast expanse of the Atlantic it swam under the small boat she was sailing in. Wondering where it had disappeared she donned goggles and swam under the boat, and that’s where she met it. Vast head and enormous calm eyes staring into hers.

Hot Stuff: Venus and the Sun

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

There are some (men) who think that there can be no better role in life than being the male lion in a pride. With a choice of delightful females, who also put the food on the table, there is very little for a lion in his prime to worry about. That is unless you happen

Mars in prison by the sea – Guantanamo

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

These qualities are arrived at by a process of refinement of the grosser manifestations of human behavior. In Pisces, humans can no longer get away with how they might like

Borderliners

Anybody who has crossed the border between two countries knows how it is. Some borders of course a traditionally worse than others, and you would not get far trying to go from South to North Korea for example. There the no-man’s-land is seeded with mines, and electronics register anyone so foolish to intrude, night or

Bush-Clinton, A Study in progressed Mercury

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

Prediction with astrology has never been an exact science. Whilst there have been attempts throughout astrological history to build up sets of rules for judging contests and finding outcomes, such rules are unreliable, perhaps because no set of astronomical circumstances ever repeats itself exactly. Furthermore, what may have worked in the 15th century under certain

Storytime

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

There are times when it is simply ineffective in the astrological consultation – and indeed any other form of communication – to convey information in a conventional, explanatory way, because the conscious mind of the receiver for one reason or another is not capable of absorbing the explanation. Especially when strong emotional, intellectual or identity

Turkey in Europe

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2003 with No comments

Crossing the Straits of Bosphorus in 1970, after hitching through Europe, was an extraordinary experience for me. Istanbul itself – though very exotic with the Blue Mosque and the city’s Muslim culture – still had a European feel. But once across the waters that separated Istanbul from the rest, and far larger part, of Turkey,
