John Davidson, a 30 Bob man


The poet Recently I have been reading A History of Modern Poetry by David Perkins, Harvard University Press, and rediscovered many a familiar poet that I haven’t read in ages. John Davidson was one though I probably could not have told you more than he was “poet with Eliot connections” but that was about all.

Updating Astrologer-Psychologist Liz Greene


In Ms. Greene’s book, The Outer Planets and their Cycles, section #5, Liz admits that her “Mercury is in Gemini”. Based on her birthday of September 4th that cannot be literally true Mercury is never that far away from the Sun (which in September is in Virgo), so she must mean is that it is in its the third house or Gemini. Re-rectifying Liz When … Continue reading Updating Astrologer-Psychologist Liz Greene

#654 2-fer Karl Marx


Marc Jones has Karl Marx with a 1:30 am birth time. This gives the German political philosopher 10 Aquarius as his ascendant — [HS] “artisan in mosaic glass” the call for careful and sophisticated consideration of subtle distinctions before the execution of one’s great work.” It gets the keyword of “Planning” according to McClung as the key is keeping the end in mind.

The Birkenheads were a distinguished literary couple: she was a … Continue reading #98 Countess Birkenhead, Sheila Berry Birkenhead

#272 Louis De Wohl, astrologer


Marc Edmund Jones has him incorrectly listed as Louis duHohle born on January 25, 1903 at 7:45 PM no place.  Astro.com gets the win here, with a January 24, 1903 in Berlin Germany.  De Wohl, as an astrologer, states that his birthtime is 15:30.  To be honest, we disagree with his time and would move it Cancer 23.  Nothing really changes, just the ascendant, so … Continue reading #272 Louis De Wohl, astrologer
