Neptune in Pisces

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with 2 Comments

Last month we looked at how the major planetary cycles will affect the first six signs of the zodiac using solar house astrology.

As we head in to 2010, a series of extremely dynamic planetary constellations start shaping up, setting the scene for five or six years of dramatic change for the world. These patterns are reminiscent of the 1930’s when the world was struggling with economic depression on the one hand and political extremism on the others.

Realizing the Self

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with 1 Comment

When people discuss the question of fate and free will, they tend to forget just how deep in the past the root causes of our existence lie. As we deal with life day by day, and moment by moment, we are actually dealing with the consequences of actions that we took earlier, sometimes many years

Belief Systems & their Consequences

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with No comments

Back in the 1980’s I had a formative experience as an astrologer, which arose from the visit of a rather difficult client. She had Pisces rising and her grasp of reality and especially relationships was very tenuous – or so it seemed to me. She was convinced that she was being constantly followed by men.

THE FUTURE FOR IRAN At the time of writing – four days after the chaotic Iranian election on June 12th 2009 – there are still wild protests on the streets of Teheran and other major cities, as supporters of candidate Mousavi demand that there be an accounting for their disappeared votes.

Counseling Couples

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with No comments

In life there is what we think happens, and what actually happens. What actually happens is difficult, if not impossible, to establish objectively. There is a Russian proverb that says, “Never trust an eye witness”, and this theme has often been explored by artists and film directors. The most recent may be Vantage Point (2008),

Afghanistan – Past & Future

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with No comments

When I arrived in Herat, the most easterly city in Afghanistan, in June 1970, it was, or seemed to be, an idyllic kingdom, ruled by a king called Zahir Shah. Coming from the oppressive desert of Iran, with an equally oppressive regime, it was like entering heaven from hell. Suddenly there was music in the

The Wild Transition from 2008 to 2010

by Adrian Duncan on April 7, 2011 in Adrian's Articles 2009 with No comments

Planets seem to like to mark their territory, and when that territory covers the cusp of a sign, then border issues are always a major theme.
