The Astro-View From Scotland
Dell Horoscope|January 2018

Anyone who has ever written a regular column will know that there are times when inspiration is—not to put too fine a point on it—notable by its absence. At other times, so many ideas are flying around that catching one by the tail to pin it down is, to say the least, tricky. And, you never know, as the last deadline is met and you can now relax for a few weeks, which set of conditions is going to prevail the next time.

Anne Whitaker
So, Reader, there I was, new deadline appearing over the horizon, and…nada. Nix. Nothing. At all. Brain cell dry as an old chewed-up bone. In this situation there are generally two options: blind panic—or blind faith. I have six fiery planets. This is often a curse, let me tell you, but in the matter of column deadlines, it is a blessing. So, armed with nothing but blind faith, I headed for the office.

To pass time sitting on the bus, I check my phone. Aha! There’s a message on Messenger! A colleague is beginning a new project for the international company he works for, an unusual company where his boss is an astrology appreciator. He is making a podcast series on Turning Points: asking people to talk for five minutes on the one decision that changed their lives forever. He is inviting me to contribute.

“Ping!!” went the brain cell, hit by a mini-bolt of inspiration. I had my topic. I’d ruminate on what it was that inspired me to take up, and continue, the long-term study and practice of astrology. That decision certainly changed MY life forever.

So—what was it?

Was it my youthful awe as I watched the northern lights enacting their glorious colourful dance just above the skyline near our house? Perhaps it was lying cozy in bed, listening to the roaring gales of January tearing the world apart—wondering what Power was behind that raging wind. Was it the growing excitement, as I grew up, of being able to spot familiar constellations in the clear, unpolluted night skies of my native island?

Does Astrology Deny Free Will?

A criticism commonly leveled against astrology involves the thorny issue of free will. If our lives are somehow influenced or even predetermined by the stars, the argument goes, doesn’t that mean we have no real choice, that we’re little more than puppets of an overarching cosmic fate?

February's Planets And You

On the 15th, there will be a Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius. The sole lunation of the month, it opposes the degree of last August’s Solar Eclipse at 29° Leo, reenergizing issues from last summer. It also reawakens issues from 18, 36, and 54 years ago, as well as further back. The shadow of the eclipse falls in the southpolar region, not visible from any major country. It was the late Al Morrison who theorized that eclipses conjunct the poles tend to have an effect on the world in general, much as planets at 0° of the cardinal signs do.

Your Astrological Guide To Getting Organized!

Sometimes, working at home as a writer, I feel overwhelmed by pieces of paper, large and small. The same is true of pens and reference books. When the stacks are tall enough to cast shadows, I grow claustrophobic and flee to the public library. There I can work in a spacious, orderly, and ideal if somewhat sterile world.

Question: Which dorm mate should I choose?Date: July 23, 2017Time: 10:24:00 A.M. E.D.T.Place: West Hartford, CTThis question came from my client’s daughter who is beginning her first year of college and will live on campus. She asked: “I have a dorm room at the college I will attend this fall. Two of my girlfriends are also attending the same college. They both want to room with me, but I can only take one as a roommate. Which one should I choose?”I asked her which friend requested to room with her first. This a very important question because it establishes the houses that rule each friend.

December's Planets And You

As loyal readers know, eclipses are the most powerful energizers in astrology. I usually begin an eclipse analysis about three months prior to its occurrence because the general rule is that Solar Eclipses begin to heat up the degrees in the zodiac about 90 days in advance. An example from last spring, however, demonstrates that this time span is simply a guideline.

Christmas And Soul - Centered Gifts For The Signs

The search for self—the process of individuation—is not a fad. Certainly, there are processes, weekend intensives, and specialized spiritual products and programs that come and go. We could say that there are a number of outer forms for the search for self that are indeed trendy, glamorous, and faddish, but that is the nature of all forms of social popularity in general. The essential search for the key to the expansion of consciousness and the resultant transformations in our attitudes and lifestyles are certainly not faddish. There is a Path, and that Path is the Goal; our job is getting There, and I assure you that there is a “There” to get to.—AO

The Astro - View Scotland

The Titan Prometheus was a pretty arrogant fellow in my view. According to Greek myth, he stole the fire of knowledge from the gods, hidden in a fennel stalk, to give to humanity for our enlightenment. Did he consult any humans beforehand to see if we wanted such a double-edged gift? To the best of my knowledge, he did not. He thought he knew best. For this blatant act of hubris—i.e., thinking you are as smart as the gods—he was savagely punished by Zeus, their king. You probably know the story, but it bears repeating just to remind us that hubris is not a good idea. Chained to a rock, Prometheus had his liver pecked out by an eagle on a daily basis; it regrew overnight—the punishment never ended.
