A 2022 U.S. Congressional Election “Majority” Forecast, Part 2

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Here is the "tarot" segment of my two-part analysis of the 2022 Congressional mid-term election. It turned out to be a nuanced and tricky reading. (I apologize in advance for the seemingly gratuitous use of quotes and parenthetical asides, but they're intended to season my rhetoric with anecdotal aptness.) Full Disclosure: For most … Continue reading A 2022 U.S. Congressional Election “Majority” Forecast, Part 2

A 2022 U.S. Congressional Election “Majority” Forecast, Part 1

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Although this horary forecast is scheduled to appear in a future issue of the online AstroLogic magazine, I wanted to present it here first since I'm working on Part 2 and didn't want to wind up in a "cart > horse" situation when I publish it. The success of my Sarah Palin prediction … Continue reading A 2022 U.S. Congressional Election “Majority” Forecast, Part 1

A “Temporal Focus” Example Reading: Roe vs Wade

I'm going to preface my interpretation by saying that on one hand I'm a small-government "Libertarian sympathizer" and a firm believer in "States' Rights" as originally intended by the framers of the Constitution, while on the other hand (at least in the purely mystical sense of the soul's delayed entry into the body, which doesn't … Continue reading A “Temporal Focus” Example Reading: Roe vs Wade

A “Left Brain/Right Brain” Example Reading: The Fate of Roe vs Wade

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Here is the companion piece to the spread I posted earlier today. To test my new "Left Brain/Right Brain" Split-Decision Spread, I decided to tackle one of the most highly-charged and divisive issues of our time from both a legal and emotional standpoint: the fate of the Roe vs Wade abortion law in … Continue reading A “Left Brain/Right Brain” Example Reading: The Fate of Roe vs Wade

2022 and the Nature of “Six-ness” – “Pleasure with Pain for Leaven”

Author's Note: Here is a meditation on the nature of "Six-ness" as it applies to the year ahead. (Please forgive the cynic in me, it's irrepressible.) This is the time of year when everyone and their psychic brother (or, more plausibly, sister, daughter, mother, aunt or grandmother) will be doing an annual forecast for 2022. … Continue reading 2022 and the Nature of “Six-ness” – “Pleasure with Pain for Leaven”

A “Bypass and Detour” Example Reading: The Ukraine Dilemma

Here is the first test of my “Bypass and Detour” Situational Spread; I currently have no personal circumstances that are complex enough to fully exercise this spread, so I chose a situation unfolding on the world stage. The deck is the Waite-Smith "Centennial in a Tin" mini edition. I asked the question “What will be … Continue reading A “Bypass and Detour” Example Reading: The Ukraine Dilemma

Trump’s Fate: A “Friends-and-Enemies” Example Reading

I'm probably going to disappoint the Trump-haters again, but I try to "just read the cards" with these sociopolitical readings and not grind any axes. As a "third-party" (Libertarian) sympathizer who subscribes to the maxim "Government is not the solution, it's the problem," I like to put US politics under the tarot microscope. There is … Continue reading Trump’s Fate: A “Friends-and-Enemies” Example Reading

COVID-19 Peak: A Best-Case/Worst-Case Scenario

With the US government predicting the nationwide impact of the coronavirus pandemic to peak in the next seven to fourteen days, I decided to do a "best-case/worst-case scenario" reading using both the most pessimistic (Night Sun Tarot) and the most optimistic (Chrysalis Tarot) decks I own (if nothing else, the color palette of each tells … Continue reading COVID-19 Peak: A Best-Case/Worst-Case Scenario

Coronavirus Pandemic: A Horary Perspective

I cast a horary astrology chart to ask the same question I posed to the tarot yesterday: What are the chances for a global pandemic of the COVID-19 coronavirus? In keeping with John Frawley's recommendation, I used the Regiomontanus house system. A quick disclaimer: there is no reason to believe that my work is any … Continue reading Coronavirus Pandemic: A Horary Perspective
