The witty, urbane, and whimsically Canadian Matthew Currie has published the first in a series of small yet delectable e-books. This one provides a thoroughly readable introduction […]
I became an astrological eclipse-watcher completely by accident. In the early days of my practice, I decided one week to prepare a lecture on eclipse cycles for my intermediate astrology class.
