Stacy   I had no problems with his site or virsus    Good Luck!   amy

I just read that his court settlement with Fleetwood Mac has been finalised.

Can't help but think this issue is a scenario of the One (solo) versus the Group. It would tie in with his strong Leo/Aquarius on the Asc/Dsc axis and Uranus (7) placed in the 11th house of groups.

*Just an aside: I was lucky to have front row seating at Fleetwood Mac's last NZ concert tour, at the  Bowl of Brooklands, New Plymouth, Taranaki,  NZ, on Sunday 20th December 2009.

I felt that was a bucket list item ticked off to see them perform in person, as I had named my 1st daughter after one of their songs, something I decided would happen when I was aged 15.


Any thoughts?

Amy, All--

Sorry to hijack this thread, though m question has to do with death.

Amy:  the Vedic astrologer seems nice and says I will have my report by 12/15, though the web site says 2-3 days, I think. Anyway....he emailed me confirmation of payment received, but I got another warning about his email address. I did pester him about my time of birth per my other thread because I want an accurate report, obviously. So sent him a few back and forths confirming my time. I think he is smart enough to convert my tob into military; just making sure. Did you have any problems opening report, or viruses, etc.

       Hi Dean, interesting question.    The asteroid for astrology is URANIA and where it fits in his natal would reveal if he was into astrology.
I don't know if the asteroid ephemeris goes back that far but you can try   I'd look for you but am out of
town and don't have access to my chart computer.
       You could look at his natal chart and see if Uranus, the astrology planet receives major aspects which would translate into him being
interested in astrology.

First of all,  I Googled military time and came up with 13:06---different from your answer, so thereby questioned it. You may have been following the conversation between Amy and I as I sought out a Vedic report. This Vedic astrologer confirmed 13:06 as the correct conversion. Or maybe, because I also typed in my USA time he understands what my tob is. Hoping he gets it right anyway, or the report will be flawed.

Second issue: native Mercury Rx in 3rd (mental process) sq Neptune in 12th (drugs) is definitely getting worse though I still have my facilities about me ;). My Rheumatologist put in writing that I have memory loss due to long-term medication/narcotic use, etc.  30 years of RXs---it happens.

Years ago was diagnosed with brain lesions secondary to CNS Lupus, so who knows what the effects 20 years later?   And, I always have been fuzzy with math to some degree, though other areas of math I am quick as lightening. I suspect a learning disability after all these years. It's hit and miss.  But thanks for your concern...

Hello Forum.

I discovered recently that Newton was fascinated by the Bible's Book of Revelations and studied it along with Daniel...quite a polymath.

Star scope for day of birth
 Noon chart Eastern USA time DST

 One thing that pops is  Chiron op Uranus with midpoint at 14 Virgo so  watch for future lunations  and aspects at that point or pointing to that point  via geometric  quindeciles.

 in January 2021 the gathering of stars in Capricorn point to his 24 Leo Mars

 This may be a war time involving Israel , Syria and USA.

Isaiah predicts destruction of Damascus and  Ezekiel ?  mentions destruction of some northern cities in Israel. This might be the time. Maybe this guy is involved somehow.
General Astrology Discussion / Isaac Newton: astrologer or not?

There is this professor Robert van Gent, from the University of Utrecht in Holland, who has spent a lot of time researching whether Isaac Newton, voted the greatest contributor to science, was an astrologer or not.

On his web page,, he tabulates the percentages of time Newton spent on different disciplines:

Among the 1752 books with identifiable titles on this list, no less than 477 (27.2%) were on the subject of theology, 169 (9.6%) on alchemy, 126 (7.2%) on mathematics, 52 (3.0%) on physics and only 33 (1.9%) on astronomy. Surprisingly, Newton’s books on the disciplines on which his scientific fame rests amount to no more than 12% of his library.

According to Wikipedia, "Of an estimated ten million words of writing in Newton's papers, about one million deal with alchemy".

Also, "In the character of Morton Opperly in "Poor Superman" (1951), speculative fiction author Fritz Leiber says of Newton, "Everyone knows Newton as the great scientist. Few remember that he spent half his life muddling with alchemy, looking for the philosopher's stone. That was the pebble by the seashore he really wanted to find."

"Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope. He investigated and demonstrated the refraction of light. He used the methods of calculus to solve the problem of planetary motion, the shape of the surface of a rotating fluid, the oblateness of the earth, the motion of a weight sliding on a cycloid, and many other problems discussed in his Principia Mathematica (1687). In addition to his work on calculus, as a mathematician Newton contributed to the study of power series, generalised the binomial theorem to non-integer exponents, developed a method for approximating the roots of a function, and classified most of the cubic plane curves.

In his Hypothesis of Light of 1675, Newton posited the existence of the ether to transmit forces between particles. The contact with the Cambridge Platonist philosopher Henry More revived his interest in alchemy. He replaced the ether with occult forces based on Hermetic ideas of attraction and repulsion between particles. John Maynard Keynes, who acquired many of Newton's writings on alchemy, stated that "Newton was not the first of the age of reason: He was the last of the magicians." Newton's interest in alchemy cannot be isolated from his contributions to science. This was at a time when there was no clear distinction between alchemy and science. Had he not relied on the occult idea of action at a distance, across a vacuum, he might not have developed his theory of gravity."

Let's just say he is deserving of the title many have attributed to him, the greatest scientist ever.

It is unlikely that he would have written hundreds of papers, a "million words", about a subject he knew little about, its origins and principles.

Here's the rub: alchemy is strongly based on astrological principles. If you don't believe this, please research it for yourself.

This document will help get you started:

It is unlikely that a master chef knows little about food.

What is an astrologer? Someone who 'practises' astrology, or someone who has spent a considerable amount of time studying astrology and uses it?

The truth is, there is little difference. Newton was an astrologer.

Van Gent says "There are of course several references to astrology in Newton’s writings regarding alchemy and biblical chronology but none of these support the claim that Newton had an interest in traditional or judicial astrology."

Granted. There are many branches of astrology, which include 'natural', or traditional astrology, mundane, medical, horary, elective, and predictive, or judicial astrology. Just because Newton focused on certain areas of astrology, it did not make him any less of an astrologer.

Have taken some licence and added your birthchart, just so people are clear. If that is not okay, I will remove it.

It doesn't seem like you to be so vague, are these meds really affecting your ability to think clearly?

0106 is the correct answer and format for military time (US).
