Mundane Astrology

Intelligence agencies do not know astrology
Last weekend I attended a symposium entitled “Reality exceeds Fiction: Beyond Big Brother”, held in Lisbon, Portugal. I suspected that we were already experiencing the scenario depicted by George Orwell in 1949 in the novel  “1984”, but I left convinced that we live in a society where the institutional powers, under the guise of protection, […] Read more – ‘Intelligence agencies do not know astrology’.
Wonders of Astrocartography –the World Cup (still) and the Ukraine
Mundane Astrology is the study of the impact of planetary motions in global, national  or collective events.

Star of David
This horrid Mercury retrograde period is about to end on July 21. I was badly affected because I had no choice but to schedule the sale of our home, an intercontinental move, and several flights for myself and family while Mercury was in retrograde motion.  Communications problems galore as expected and even some that were […] Read more – ‘Star of David’.
The astrology of the crisis
Part 1 –  Pluto in Capricorn When I hear politicians and bankers address the current economic crisis, whether European or American, I deeply regret the disappearance of court astrologers.  Queen Elizabeth I of England had astrologer John Dee as a counselor and had one of the most successful reigns in history. President Obama expressed publicly […] Read more – ‘The astrology of the crisis’.
In memoriam Steve Jobs: February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011
