T-R (call me Henry),

There are a lot of ideas in your replies. I’m not going to comment on all of them in detail—my preference is to make general statements based on actual experience—as ever! Firstly, let me share with you one early, and powerful, experience. This occurred in the late 1980s.

I was staying at my ex-wife’s home, about 7 miles from the city of Edinburgh, Scotland (my place of birth). I was trying to get to sleep when my ‘guide’ said to me “Come to the window”. I rose from my bed and walked to the window. He said, “Look up. Tell me… what do you see?”. I replied, “Just a bunch of stars”. He laughed, then said “Beautiful... beautiful. Now, hold out your hand” which I duly did. “In your hand I have placed a key”. At that time, I had no idea what he was talking about—I half expected to see an actual metal key materialise in my hand. Now, of course, I do understand what he meant.

The story feeds in to a couple of points of interest. In regards to my knowing other members of the forum, those who remember my ‘early days’ posting will remember a pugnacious, insistent individual, full of reforming zeal, certain he was right on various matters astrological and prone to getting involved in heated arguments. So, yes… I have interacted with many forums members in the past. Now that I have lived for a ‘three score and ten’ allotment of years, I am no longer that youthful firebrand, but I still have that ‘key’ to understanding Astrology!

You made the point that “Astrology is not a religion”—technically true, but the source of religious experience is the same creative force producing astrological effects. Part of ‘the key’ is to be found in Kabbalah, the esoteric side of Judaism, which models the creative dynamic behind the world of appearance – diagrammed as the Tree of Life. My own work takes some basic ideas from Kabbalah and interprets them for a modern audience, then uses these ideas to integrate the parts of Astrology. Kabbalah, of course, is based on ‘received wisdom’ – Kabbalah is about, and from, “God, the creator”—the Omega factor, as I have called it. I remember reading a description of Kabbalist training – in principle, no different to the psychic development circles I used to frequent!

Overall, the point I’m trying to make is that my perspective is significantly different to the mainstream of astrologers, to the extent that productively discussing (in the context of this forum) ‘free will’ and ‘predestination’ is problematic for me.  I’m happier offering up the fruits of my experience, to shed a different light on the problem. A study of ‘The Ages’ shows you the link between astrological effects and religions – systems of organisation promoting the integration and growth of Human societies.

What is a Google "fest" if I may ask?

Forgive my loose terminology for a successful google search yesterday. No disrespect for the topic intended. But, yes, the compliment was…though I didn't have a party animal in mind. :)   

Thanks for the feedback.

It can indicate health trouble, but not necessarily anything serious--he may just experience allergies or drug sensitivities or find he sleeps a lot more, and these minor troubles may last a little longer than usual.

Yes...

More than a few years, I suspect.

But, thankfully, and for better or worse, one can always be wrong!

         Siegfried Fischbacher, one-half of the famous magician duo Siegfried & Roy, died Wednesday night at his home in Las Vegas from pancreatic cancer. He was 81.

Fischbacher's death comes just months after his performance partner, Roy Horn, died from complications related to COVID-19 at the age of 75.

A statement from Siegfried & Roy's press office said Fischbacher had a unique ability to "perform complicated magic at lightning speed." This made him a perfect foil for Horn, a "perpetual dreamer."

Jane Ridder-Patrick gives 16 Cancer to the Pancreas....he has Solar Arc Saturn detrimented in 16 Cancer, 12th House.

Hi Halina and rollanrm,

The Arabic Part of "End of Things" seems more appropriate, but it does still leave some room for interpretation.

Still, it is noteworthy that his 12th house of secret enemies is being activated.
