  1. Dear Anne,
    I hope this is the right place to leave a response to your article on sunsign astrology-I am not great with technology,so please direct me to the correct place if this isn’t it…..quite simply,as a “real” astrologer,I resent the fact that most people,if I say I am an astrologer,will assume I do only sun-sign astrology-& I do so hate being misunderstood & misinterpreted!I understand that this is mainly because,as you point out,astrology is occult,but also because of that so many people simply don’t know there IS any other kind of astrology,& I feel that part of my life purpose is to assist people,via astrology,to gain access to their own soul,or spirit,not sure which.I believe we would have a better world if people knew more about real astrology,& I feel a kind of passionate obligation to offer my small part in this.I believe people should have as much access to their inner being as possible,& popular astrology destroys this-because it is false.
    Thank you for your generosity in providing this column,tis much appreciated,
    Aloka x
    PS:I presume I am a 12th House person,as I have North Node conjunct Neptune in Scorpio in the 12th,& my moon & mars are conjunct in Pisces in the 4th,in a wide trine to Neptune & the node.I also have Jupiter in Libra in the 12th,also conjunct the others.What do you think?I think my experiences qualify me as a 12th House person!


  2. I had no idea Dawn Bodrogi had passed on. Our loss. I read her articles from time to time and always learned something important. “The Measurers” brought this song to mind:

    “Inchworm, inchworm, measuring the marigolds
    You and your arithmetic,
    You’ll probably go far.

    Inchworm, inchworm, measuring the marigolds
    Seems to me you’d stop and see
    How beautiful they are.”

    This song made a deep and lasting impression on me as a child. I knew from a young age that I would never be just an inchworm, a measurer. We had the recording by Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians (aka Fred Waring and the Blenders), but John Coltrane also did a very fine cover.

    Thank you Dawn, for everything.
