Burma

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

Burma is rather a strange country. The country has strange astrologers too. They had a hand in the founding chart of Burma, choosing a birth time of 4.20 a.m. at which time independence celebrations took place in the bright light of a half-moon. Perhaps these astrologers liked the fact that Jupiter was rising and in

In 1977 – the same year as the discovery of Chiron – the book Recent Advances in Natal Astrology was released, authored by Geoffrey Dean and Arthur Mather. Dean was a practicing astrologer who began to use statistical methods to examine traditional claims in astrology, and to discover correlations between astrology and behavior. Recent Advances

Jupiter transits through the Houses

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

Without Jupiter it could be difficult to get out of bed in the morning. Everyday we see to it that we have something to look forward to – a vision to reach, a reward to be enjoyed. So huge is this need that prosperous industries have been built around it. Lotteries, football pools, casinos tune

Cool Future

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

Recorded history on Earth did not begin so long ago. Egyptian hieroglyphics appeared about 6000 years back and the first phonetic writing appeared shortly after. Theoretically this is a span of only 200 generations. In this period, at least until recently, people have huddled around fires both to keep warm and to cook food. Flames

Saturn,Capricorn & Aquarius

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

There is no planet that takes its time quite like Saturn. It never rushes, never accomplishes anything rapidly, always seems to go a little too slowly. From it we learn the qualities of patience, stoicism and perseverance. Time drags on just slow enough for us to actually build something lasting. Any faster and the foundations

Extreme Loving

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

It is difficult to work with astrology and be politically correct at the same time, especially when the subject turns to gender issues. Traditionally gender has been assigned to planets, notably the “male” epithet to Sun and Mars, and the female to Moon and Venus. If you did not follow that guideline as a practising

2008 & the Wings of Victory

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

An era is drawing to a close. What began in January 1995 when Pluto entered Sagittarius, will change in January 2008, when Pluto leaves. 13 long years which have seen a religious transformation take place beyond our dreams, from Islamic terror to neo-conservative hegemony in the USA and prayer sessions between Bush and Blair. It

The Death Penalty

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

Crucifixion anyone? Drowning, beating to death, stoning, burning alive, impalement, hanging… many methods have been invented to take the life of humans who have been judged to be criminals by their fellow men. In the past, seeing as there were not so many mass entertainment possibilities, executions were quite an event and drew large crowds.

Astrology – A General Organizing Principle

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2007 with No comments

When Jupiter entered Sagittarius on November 24th 2006, I thought it would be a good idea to keep eyes and ears open. Perhaps there would be a sign from heaven. Arriving at the train station on a journey to Copenhagen I struggled to get the ticket machine to work, and was joined by another man,
