THE DRACONIC BOWL is now available

29 Jul

Most astrologers recognize the Bowl – one of seven horoscope patterns popularized by Marc Edmund Jones. Many are also familiar with Pamela Crane’s concept of the Draconic chart, wherein the lunar nodes provide a benchmark for assessing individual karma.

By merging both principles, we can identify a unique shape – the Draconic Bowl – where the nodal axis forms the rim of the bowl, and the seven visible planets are bound to one side of that axis. By applying core principles drawn from traditional astrology – Eastern and Western – the author explores the consequences of this powerful esoteric pattern, illustrated with 36 notable nativities.

When considering only the visible planets, approximately 12.5% of us have a Draconic Bowl in our charts. Among famous people, the Draconic Bowl club includes some of the most outstanding artists, athletes, criminals, intellectuals, musicians, politicians and writers of history.

Among astrologers alone, the alumni includes: John Addey, Olivia Barclay, Robert DeLuce, Louis DeWohl, Zipporah Dobyns, Michael Erlewine, Demetra George, Dennis Harness, Marc Edmund Jones, Anthony Louis, Michael Lutin, Alan Oken, Joni Patry, Erin Sullivan, and Alfred Witte.

Independent of charts exhibiting a Draconic Bowl, this book also provides an exhaustive interpretation of what it means to have the nodal axis in any given pair of houses around the chart. As such, it is an invaluable reference work for any astrologer, at whatever level of expertise, who has struggled to understand the consequences of the moon’s nodes, whether they be karmic or mundane.

Purchase a digital copy of THE DRACONIC BOWL at any of these online retailers, paperback available at Amazon only.

“You have no refuge but writing.” ~ Tennessee Williams

18 Jul

My work is emotionally autobiographical. It has no relationship to the actual events of my life, but it reflects the emotional currents of my life. I try to work every day because you have no refuge but writing. When you’re going through a period of unhappiness, a broken love affair, the death of someone you love, or some other disorder in your life, then you have no refuge but writing.

~ TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

“The life of a writer is absolute hell” ~ Roald Dahl

15 Jul

The life of a writer is absolute hell compared to the life of a businessman. The writer has to force himself to work. He has to make his own hours and if he doesn’t go to his desk at all there is nobody to scold him.… A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it.

~ ROALD DAHL
