posted by Lynn Hayes

Gee, maybe we’re not alone after all…

posted by Lynn Hayes

It seems to me to be the height of hubris when, knowing that the universe is vast and filled with an unknowable number of planets many people still feel that Earth is the only one with life. Scientists have now […]

Stephanie Miller on MSNBC!!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Although I am a news hound, I prefer to take my news with the biting sarcasm of Jill’s blog or the sophomoric humor of Jon Stewart. Another one of my favorite news sources is Stephanie Miller’s radio show, and Stephanie […]

Saturn and Walls

Pluto and Eris articles posted

Cho Seung-Hui: Ismail X

posted by Lynn Hayes

I was astonished by the superficiality of the psychological profiles of the so-called experts analyzing the 1800 page manifesto mailed to NBC by the Virginia Tech killer. It’s easy to dismiss these actions as psychotic delusions of grandeur from an […]

Saturn turns direct and other planetary news

posted by Lynn Hayes

Saturn, which has been traveling retrograde where it has been challenging our understanding and forcing us to go back and confront areas where we are less than good enough, turns direct today and resumes its forward motion through the sign […]

Profile of Cho Seung-Hui: Virginia Tech killer

posted by Lynn Hayes

I want to preface this post by reiterating that no astrological chart reveals a predestination to be a killer, and there is no way we could have looked at this young man’s chart before yesterday and predicted that he would […]

Hexagons and Saturn

Angelina Jolie: Rumors of a rejected Shiloh

posted by Lynn Hayes

Like many people I watch Angelina Jolie with fascination. From her earliest days in the public arena with tales of bisexuality and self-mutilation she has appeared to be a wild and unusual woman. After having transformed herself into a representative […]

It’s all about Mars

posted by Lynn Hayes

I’ve been feeling particularly Marsy today – snippy, irritated and generally difficult. Mars is approaching a square to my progressed Sun and I am really feeling it, and the upcoming New Moon in Aries will accentuate the influence of Mars […]

Ceres and the Pluto/GC Conjunction

posted by Lynn Hayes

As most of you know, Pluto was reclassified last year joining Ceres and Eris as dwarf planets (I personally wish they had kept the initial name of Plutons, but oh well). This has not changed the effect that Pluto has […]

Apologies and the Libra Full Moon

posted by Lynn Hayes

You may remember that the Full Moon in Libra on April first included a trine to Pluto, the god of transformation, and I noted in an earlier post that this seemed to have stimulated a new sense of political diplomacy. […]

Mars in Pisces and other planetary news

Pluto trine the Libra Full Moon – a new kind of diplomacy?:
