Colour Charts in Books

We all know that colour is an essential feature of astrological psychology, and it gives immediate meaning to the Huber-style birth chart.

Of course, this

Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury tops of my list of rock singers. His voice is iconic, along with his style and energy in performance. He was electric and riveting on stage but, according to the current biopic of his his life with Queen, was not an easy person to live with. Nor was he comfortable with himself and

Gustav Holst and The Planets Suite

I recently visited the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham and was fascinated to learn about this British composer’s life. I’ve long been a fan of his Planets Suite and have occasionally wondered how he was inspired to write music about seven planets with their correct, traditional astrological characteristics. At the museum I discovered that he

Theresa May

It’s impossible to find the birth time of the inscrutable Mrs May, so her chart is set up for noon. Don’t expect this time to be correct; all that can be done is to take a look at what is there using the noon chart and make some comments. I’ve been observing our Prime Minister

2017 and the echoes of 1933

We live in interesting times, as the saying goes. Anyone paying attention to the on-going parade of changing world events in 2016 will be wondering “what next?” What in heaven’s name is coming up in 2017? More change? Less upheaval? More of the same but at another turn of the spiral? Here’s the chart for

Good leaders are scarce, so I’m following my Self*

There’s an insidious creeping nastiness in the air following the result of the US election. You could argue that it was there before, as a dominant feature throughout the presidential campaign. Now we know the result we (i.e. the world) have to get on with it, protests or not, intentions to leave the country or
