Charts and Handwriting

Handwriting as a means of communication tells us far more just the myriad of marks on a page. They directly reflect the aspects in a natal chart and as such, give clients a concrete tool for awareness of their issues, along with the ability to understand them every time they pick up a pen. For by changing a feature in one’s handwriting, one can help a difficult aspect gain a more helpful expression. This article is an introduction to an extremely valuable tool for clients as well as the astrologer.

Solstice and Antiscia Points:
The Space in Your Chart
for Your Partner

This article looks at the hidden glue that links two people to each other. Like a mirror, each chart has points which can be seen but cannot be touched called Solstice and Antiscia points. The ancients called  these points "shadows on the other side".  Beyond synastry and composite work, such points can show the critical connectors in great relationships.

The Astrology of Grief:
An Introduction

The experience of grief is among the most fundamental and inescapable aspects of the human condition. The aim of this article is to offer astrologers an introduction as to what grief is and present ways of working with clients in grief in astrological consultation.
Published in the New York NCGR Memberletter, Spring 2004

Some of this work appeared in published form in The Mountain Astrologer October-November, 1999 and was subsequently translated into Russian and Dutch; and some of it was presented at the AA Conference in Reading in September, 2000. All of it forms part of the shaping and thinking that has now become my book "Life After Grief".

The Pre-Natal Epoch

The Pre-Natal Epoch is a very ancient concept. Known as the Trutine of Hermes. It describes the relationship between a normal period of gestation and the moment of birth, depending on the Moon and the lunar rhythm. This sets up a correlation between the chart for the moment of conception and the chart for the moment of first breath, as the physical body separates from the body of the mother. Examples used in this article: George W. Bush and Ian Thorpe.

Fidaria - the Disposed Years
An Ancient Predictive Technique

Planetary periods form a vital part of Ancient and Medieval astrology. The Firdaria or “the years of the alfirdar”, as ibn Ezra refers to them are a Persian concept and alludes to a system of planetary periods where the life is divided into irregular periods of years with each period being ruled by a planet, luminary or nodal axis. The quality of that period of time and the style of events was thus dictated by the condition of the planet in the chart.

Nick Campion


In October 2001 Nick Campion was appointed Senior Lecturer for the MA course in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology at Bath Spa University College (England). When this interview was conducted in early 2003, the USA was on the brink of the war with Iraq. In this interview he talks frankly about the (then) current world situation as seen from the mundane astrological point of view and the new developments of astrology in the academic fields.

Garry Phillipson -
The Interviewer Interviewed

Garry Phillipson emerged from his secluded, contemplative existence as a Buddhist monk to forge new pathways in astrology: Firstly, he anticipated the return of astrology to academia by undertaking his own philosophical-anthropological investigation into the world of astrology with his book, "Astrology in the Year Zero", which is now on the reading lists at various universities. Secondly, he is the first Ph.D. student to be accepted at the Sophia Centre of Bath Spa University College. Readers will recognize Garry as the name behind many interviews published in The Mountain Astrologer. Now the microphone is turned towards him. I interviewed Garry at his home in Bradford on Avon in the southwest of England on March 12, 2004.

A Tale of Two Doctors -
Part Two:

with Dr. Liz Greene

Dr. Liz Greene, one of the extraordinary names of twentieth/twenty-first century astrology. Her early books, "Saturn" (1976), "Relating" (1978), and "The Astrology of Fate" (1984), almost single-handedly shaped modern psychological astrology and began a significant and substantial legacy of work which continues to explore the astrological perspectives of mythological and psychological states. I interviewed Liz at her home in Bath on June 29, 2004.
