Editor’s Notes

Thanks to all for a good response to my request for contributions on significant aspects of ‘what astrological psychology means for me’. I hope you enjoy reading them.

In the News, Sue Lewis updates us on the AA conference, where Marilyn Burnett was a speaker. And on a more sober note you can read a statement from the APA Trustees on a change of direction for APA’s delivery of courses.

Articles include two translations by Heather Ross from recent issues of Astrolog – Louise Huber’s summary of the history of API, brought up to date by Bruno Landolt, plus a weighty assessment of Sigmund Freud 160 years on, his life and chart, by Wolfhard König. Wanda Smit completes her assessment of Picasso’s life and chart.

Sue Lewis has provided three interesting sounding book reviews, and Ghislaine Adams is rather disappointed by a book offered for review.
