Paris Jackson: you can’t go back to Neverland

April 4th, 2019 · No Comments · Astrology

Paris Jackson’s name turned up on social media last month when TMZ reported that she’d allegedly made a suicide attempt back in February. She vehemently denied this, but it’s not the first time she’s been in similar circumstances. Can astrology confirm or deny a rumor such as this? Normal people don’t understand depression, let alone […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: the face of America’s New Deal

March 6th, 2019 · 4 Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

In the Vedic pantheon of deities, Venus is known as the Asuracharya, or guru to the demons. Judging by the invective heaped upon her by Republicans and conservative news media alike, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems nothing short of the anti-Christ. But maybe that’s just the price you pay when you arrive on the battlefield announcing yourself […]

Nodal “weather” forecast: March 2019

March 1st, 2019 · No Comments · Astrology, Instruction, Science

As I explained in my initial post for this series, I’m conducting an experiment in visual display to help people appreciate the role of the nodes as proxy agents. The nodes act on behalf of planets (1) with which they’re associated, (2) by which they’re aspected, (3) whose sidereal sign they occupy, and (4) whose […]

Kala Sarpa: the astronomical rationale for “yoga”

March 1st, 2019 · 5 Comments · Astrology, Instruction, Science

As I discussed in last month’s article, one of the great uncertainties among devotees of jyotisha is whether Kala Sarpa is a yoga or a dosha. The existential question is: does it promise success or threaten destruction? As I explained in that article, there are multiple consequences when the chart is split in two by […]

Kala Sarpa: the astronomical rationale for “dosha”

February 1st, 2019 · 2 Comments · Astrology, Instruction, Science

At the core of the mystique surrounding Kala Sarpa is the existential question: is it a yoga, or is it a dosha? Does it promise success or threaten destruction? That question can only be answered via yoga vichara, the careful analysis of a configuration in order to determine its nature, its strength, and its ultimate […]

Nodal “weather” forecast: January 2019

January 7th, 2019 · No Comments · Astrology, Instruction, Science

This is an experiment in visual display to help people appreciate the role of the nodes as proxy agents. The nodes act on behalf of planets (1) with which they’re associated, (2) by which they’re aspected, (3) whose sidereal sign they occupy, and (4) whose nakshatra they occupy, in descending order of effect. Although assigning […]

January 2nd, 2019 · No Comments · Astrology, Instruction, Science
