Αστρολογία και υποθαλάσσια ξενοδοχεία~

Τον Μάρτιο του 2003 αν δεν κάνω λάθος ο πλανήτης της ψευδαίσθησης και της ονειροπόλησης, εγκατέλειψε τον διανοούμενο Υδροχόο και χτύπησε την πόρτα στον ευαίσθητο και συμπονετικό Ιχθύ.Η νέα θέση του Ουρανού μας έδωσε την ευκαιρία να συντονιστούμε με τα πραγματικά συναισθήματα των άλλων μέσω της εικονικής πραγματικότητας ή μέσω της συνειδητής επιλογής.
Είδαμε πως γίνανε σημαντικά βήματα στην Ιατρική, μουσική, τεχνολογία κτλ. Στο άρθρο αυτό σχετικά με την επιρροή του Ουρανού στους Ιχθύες, θα προσθέσω και την δημιουργία υποθαλάσσιων ξενοδοχειακών συγκροτημάτων όπως είναι το Rangali Island στις Maldives, το Poseidon UnderSea Resorts ( προσέξτε την ονομασία Poseidon= Ποσειδών), η Hydropolis στο Dubai ( εδώ δώστε προσοχή στο Hydropolis = Υδρόπολις – ύδωρ – Ιχθύες ) κτλ.

Όταν έκανε την εμφάνιση του ο free press τύπος κάποιοι μίλησαν για μια νέα μόδα η οποία σύντομα θα ξεφούσκωνε. ‘Όμως οι έρευνες που έγιναν από διαφημιστικές εταιρείες τεκμηριωμένα μας απέδειξαν πως οι νέοι σήμερα δεν αγοράζουν πλέον περιοδικά και εφημερίδες αλλά προσπαθούν να ενημερωθούν από δωρεάν πηγές όπως είναι το internet και ο free press τύπος. Σημεία των καιρών, σημεία της οικονομικής κρίσης που ταλανίζει όλο τον πλανήτη.Οι μεγαλύτερες εφημερίδες σήμερα είναι καταχρεωμένες και προσπαθούν μέσα από τα δώρα που προσφέρουν να πουλήσουν. Αυτή είναι η κατάντια μας. Όποιος δεν διαβάζει εφημερίδες δεν διαβάζει και βιβλία. Μήπως ζούμε στην εποχή της πνευματικής πενίας? Παιδιά Δημοτικού και Γυμνασίου είναι πιο ανορθόγραφα από ποτέ…

Μέσα στην γενικότερη κατάντια μας, έκανε την εμφάνιση του το αξιόλογο αστρολογικό περιοδικό Αστρόπολις, πραγματικό αστέρι μέσα στο σκοτάδι της κοινωνίας που ζούμε. Το περιοδικό αυτό έχει το πλεονέκτημα να μην προσφέρει μασημένη αστρολογική τροφή απλά για να πουλήσει! Βάζει τον αναγνώστη στην διαδικασία της σκέψης, της αναζήτησης και της κρίσης. Γι’αυτό μην το χάσετε μια και το τεύχος Μαΐου έχει άκρως ενδιαφέρουσα αστρολογική ύλη! Κυκλοφορεί σήμερα 5-5-08.Η παραπάνω εικόνα δεν αποτελεί το εξώφυλλο του περιοδικού απλά ένας φόρος τιμής στο συγκεκριμένο περιοδικό μέσα από τα δικά μου μάτια!

ΑΣΤΡΟΛΟΓΙΑ ΚΑΙ ΠΡΟΠΑΓΑΝΔΑ

Τελευταια γινονται σημεια και τερατα στον αστρολογικο διαδικτυακο χωρο.Ας δουμε το θεμα

απο την μερια της προπαγανδας και ας βγαλει ο καθενας τα δικα του συμπερασματα.

Οι Αγγλοι ακολουθουν την αρχη κατα την οποια οταν κανεις ψευδεται πρεπει να ψευδεται με θρασυτητα,αδιαντροπα,ασυστολα,να λεει αδιανοητα ψεμματα και να προσκολλαται σε αυτα.Να τα υποστηριζει δε μεχρι σημειου να καταστει γελοιος.Τοτε το τερατωδες ψεμα γινεται πιστευστο και φερνει αποτελεσματα.

Διαδοχος αυτης της αρχης ειναι ο Γκαιμπλες που υποστηριζει

Εαν διαδωσει κανεις ψεμα,αρκετα μεγαλο,και το επαναλαμβανει συνεχως,ο κοσμος θα καταληξει τελικως να το πιστεψει.Ενα ψεμα ομως μπορει να διατηρηθει μονον οσο καιρο το κρατος μπορει να διαφυλαξει τον λαο απο πολιτικες,οικονομικες και στρατιωτικες συνεπειες αυτου του ψεματος.Ειναι λοιπον ζωτικης σημασιας για το κρατος η χρησιμοποιηση ολων τον δυναμεων του ωστε να απογορεψει καθε αμφισβητηση,γιατι η αληθεια ειναι ο ηθικος εχθρος του ψεματος και κατα επεκταση η αληθεια ειναι ο μεγαλυτερος εχθρος του κρατους.


Τα ανωτερω τα εχουν σπουδασει μερικοι αρκετα καλα και κανουν το παιγχιδι τους σε αφελεις
ανθρωπους που δεν ξερουν την ΑΛΗΘΕΙΑ.Ακομη και το πιο αναιδες και θρασυ ψεμα αφηνει πισω του ιχνη,ακομη και αν εχει διαψευσθει πληρως.Αυτο ειναι γνωστο σε ολους τους ταλαντουχους ψευτες και σε οσους συνωμοτουν για να προαγουν την τεχνη του ψεματος.Μονοι αυτοι οι ανθρωποι γνωριζουν τοσο καλα πως να χρησιμοποιουν το ψεμα για τους χαμερπεστερους των σκοπων τους.

Αλλα ο σοφος λαος μας λεει ο ψευτης και ο κλεφτης τον πρωτο χρονο χαιρονται.

Ιατρική Αστρολογία και ασθένειες~


Τα ζώδια που ανήκουν στον παρορμητικό σταυρό δηλαδή Κριός, Ζυγός, Αιγόκερος και Καρκίνος προσβάλλονται από ασθένειες που πλήττουν το κεφάλι, το στήθος, το στομάχι, νεφροί, δέρμα και όστά. Όπως καταλαβαίνετε συνδέονται με τις περιοχές του σώματος που αντιπροσωπεύει το κάθε ζώδιο. Οι ασθένειες αυτές μπορούν εδώ να έχουν οξύ χαρακτήρα.

Τα ζώδια που ανήκουν στο σταθερό σταυρό δηλαδή Ταύρος, Σκορπιός, Λέων και Υδροχόος συνδέονται με σταθερό τύπο ασθενειών. Δηλαδή που σχετίζονται με το λαιμό, το θυρεοειδή αδένα, αναπαραγωγικό σύστημα, την καρδιά, την κυκλοφορία του αίματος κτλ. Οι παθήσεις θα έχουν μεγάλη διάρκεια θα είναι χρόνιες δηλαδή.

Τα ζώδια που ανήκουν στο μεταβλητό σταυρό δηλαδή Παρθένος, Ιχθύες, Δίδυμος, Τοξότης, συνδέονται με ασθένειες που έχουν να κάνουν με ώμους, πνεύμονες, ήπαρ, μηροί, πάγκρεας, έντερα και ανοσοποιητικό σύστημα. Εδώ οι ασθένειες είναι επαναλαμβανόμενες…

Θα αναφέρω ένα παράδειγμα:Έτσι λοιπόν ένα άτομο με πολύ φωτιά στο ωροσκόπιο του – πολλούς πλανήτες σε ζώδιο της φωτιάς, Λέων, Τοξότης, Κριός – μπορεί να είναι ευάλωτο σε πυρετό όμως στην θετική του πλευρά αυτό θα βοηθήσει το ανθρώπινο σώμα να απαλλαγεί από Τοξίνες και μικρόβια. Ένας αστρολογικός χάρτης φτωχός σε πλανήτες της φωτιάς μπορεί να έχει πρόβλημα με εγκαύματα ή με χαμηλό μεταβολισμό. Η θετική πλευρά εδώ είναι πως με την κατάλληλη ιατρική βοήθεια μπορεί να ξεπεράσει τα προβλήματα και μάλιστα να χτίσει ένα σωστά δομημένο σώμα. Σε αντίθεση ένα άτομο με πλεόνασμα φωτιάς στο ωροσκόπιο του μπορεί να καταναλώνει πολύ ενέργεια μια και εδώ η λέξη κλειδί είναι η δράση με αποτέλεσμα να παρουσιαστεί ηλεκτρολυτική ανισορροπία… Γιαυτό και στην περίπτωση αυτή θα πρέπει να πίνει πολλά υγρά!

Οσο βαρουν τα σιδερα



Αφιερωμενο στους φιλους που χθες τραγουδαγαμε το τραγουδι αυτο στα μπλε νερα του Αιγαιου.Αντε και του χρονου να κανουμε το πρωτο πλωτο διεθνες αστρολογικο συνεδριο.

Ιατρική Αστρολογία και οι ρίζες της~

Η Ιατρική Αστρολογία έχει πανάρχαιες ρίζες σε Κίνα, Ινδία και Αίγυπτο και δεν μπορεί να προσδιοριστεί χρονολογικά. Στην Ευρώπη όμως γνωρίζουμε μέσα από χειρόγραφα πως είχε φτάσει μόλις το 1450 μ.Χ. Σε χειρόγραφο που βρέθηκε και χρονολογείτε μόλις το 1550 μ.Χ. διαβάζουμε από ποιους πλανήτες αντιπροσωπεύονται τα ανθρώπινα όργανα:
1. Εγκέφαλος και νευρικές απολήξεις από Ερμή και Ουρανό.
2. Καρδιά από τον Ήλιο.
3. Αρτηρίες από τον Άρη.
4. Φλέβες από τον Κρόνο.
5. Νεφροί από την Αφροδίτη.
6. Μυώνες από τον Άρη.
7. Ενδοκρινικό σύστημα από Ποσειδώνα και Ουρανό.
8. Το δέρμα από τον Κρόνο.
9. Δόντια, νύχια και μαλλιά από τον Άρη.
10. Σκελετικό σύστημα από τον Κρόνο.


Παρακάτω σας παραθέτω ποια σημεία του σώματος αντιστοιχίζονται με τα ζώδια σε εκείνο το χερόγραφο:
1. Κριός: κεφάλι, πρόσωπο και μάτια.
2. Ταύρος: λαιμός, αυτιά, σβέρκος, λάρυγγας, γλώσσα.
3. Δίδυμος: ώμοι, χέρια, μυώνες και οστά αυτών, χέρια, παλάμες και πνεύμονες.
4. Καρκίνος: στομάχι, στήθος, ηλιακό πλέγμα, διάφραγμα και το άνω τμήμα του συκωτιού.
5. Λέων: η καρδιά.
6. Παρθένος: έντερα και το κάτω μέρος του συκωτιού.
7. Ζυγός: νεφροί και το δέρμα γενικά.
8. Σκορπιός: το λεπτό και το παχύ έντερο.
9. Τοξότης: μηροί και τα δάκτυλα.
10. Αιγόκερως: τα γόνατα και τα μαλλιά.
11. Υδροχόος: γόνατο, αστράγαλοι, δόντια και η κυκλοφορία του αίματος.
12. Ιχθύες: τα πόδια και τα δάκτυλα των ποδιών.

Αστρολογικές ενδείξεις για εθισμό σε ναρκωτικές ουσίες~

Τα Ναρκωτικά είναι χημικές ουσίες που επιδρούν στον ανθρώπινο εγκέφαλο και προκαλούν εθισμό. Οι ουσίες αυτές καταστρέφουν τα εγκεφαλικά κύτταρα. Αυτό πιθανόν να είναι κάτι που το γνωρίζετε. Αυτό που δεν γνωρίζετε είναι ότι γεννιόμαστε με έναν συγκεκριμένο αριθμό εγκεφαλικών κυττάρων που δεν έχουν την ιδιότητα να αναγεννώνται ή να πολλαπλασιάζονται! Από την στιγμή που το άτομο θα κάνει χρήση ναρκωτικών αρχίζει η αντίστροφη μέτρηση για τον εγκέφαλο του και κατά συνέπεια για το υπόλοιπο σώμα του. Ας μην ξεχνάμε πως καρδιά και εγκέφαλος είναι τα δυο πιο σημαντικά όργανα του ανθρώπινου σώματος. Γιαυτό σε περίπτωση που βρεθείτε σε μια παρέα ή σ’ένα φιλικό πάρτι και σας προτείνουν να δοκιμάσετε απλά αρνηθείτε και στην συνέχεια αναζητήστε την πλησιέστερη έξοδο. Και αν θελήσετε να αισθανθείτε ευεξία απλά… ρίξτε το στον αθλητισμό.

Αστρολογικά τώρα αλλά σε γενικό επίπεδο γιατί όπως έχουμε πει ο κάθε αστρολογικός χάρτης είναι μοναδικός σαν ένα ανθρώπινο δακτυλικό αποτύπωμα και δεν έχουμε την ακριβής ημερομηνία, ώρα και τόπο γέννησης δεν μπορούμε να βγάλουμε συμπεράσματα, ενδεικτικά όμως θα αναφέρουμε πως το άτομο είναι επιρρεπής σε απαγορευμένες ουσίες σε έναν αστρολογικό χάρτη όταν:
1.Ένας ισχυρός Ποσειδώνας σε σύνοδο με τον ωροσκόπο δηλαδή στον πρώτο οίκο.
2. Ένας Ποσειδώνας στον 12ο οίκο και σε απόσταση 4 – 5 μοίρες από τον ωροσκόπο τότε λέμε πως ο πλανήτης αυτός βρίσκεται στην «σκοτεινή πλευρά» και έχει ακριβώς την ίδια βαριά επιρροή στον πρώτο οίκο ακριβώς όπως στον 12ο οίκο.
3. Μια χαοτική Σελήνη στους Ιχθύες εθίζεται εύκολα σε χημικές ουσίες ή σε οτιδήποτε θα την βοηθήσει να αποδράσει από την πραγματικότητα.
4.Δυσαρμονικές όψεις με την Σελήνη μια και οι όψεις αυτές συμβάλλουν στην συναισθηματική ανισορροπία.
5.Δυσαρμονικές όψεις με τον Ουρανό μπορεί να οδηγήσουν σε νευροχημικές «εκρήξεις».
6. Δυσαρμονικές όψεις με Χείρων ή Χείρων Στο ζώδιο των Ιχθύων οδηγεί σε « διαφόρων ειδών εξαρτήσεις»…
7. Ένας Ποσειδώνας στον 8ο οίκο.
Το ξανατονίζω όλα αυτά ενδεικτικά και όχι αναλυτικά. Βλέπουμε πως ο Ποσειδώνας είναι ο κύριος υπεύθυνος αλλά όχι ο μόνος διότι συμβολίζει στην αρνητική του πλευρά την ονειροπόληση, τα ναρκωτικά, τον εθισμό, την εξαπάτηση, την σύγχυση κτλ.

Οι δεσμοι της Σεληνης στην συναστρια-1

ΣΥΝΑΣΤΡΙΑ

Ποια όψη θα επιδράσει στη συναστρία δύο ανθρώπων, εξαρτάται απ΄το που ο καθένας απ΄τους δύο τείνει: στο βόρειο ή στο νότιο δεσμό. Ο νότιος δεσμός είναι πάντα ισχυρότερος σε όψη μεταξύ δύο ωροσκοπίων, ενώ ο βόρειος είναι πάντα δυνητικός. Κατά τη δική μου εκτίμηση, πρέπει να ερμηνεύσετε ξεχωριστά τις όψεις. Εάν κάποιος δίνει περισσότερη προσοχή στη θέση του Νότιου δεσμού, αυτή η επίδραση θα γίνει πιο αισθητή μεταξύ τους. Το δυναμικό του Βόρειου δεσμού είναι πάντα ευεργετικό. Και οι δύο επιδράσεις γίνονται αισθητές σε διαφορετικές εποχές. Είναι διαφορετικές επιρροές και θάπρεπε να ερμηνευτούν έτσι. Παράδειγμα: Ο Ήλιος σε αντίθεση με το Νότιο δεσμό, που σημαίνει σε σύνοδο με το βόρειο δεσμό, αλλά δεν σημαίνει καθόλου ότι και οι δύο όψεις επηρεάζουν.

Ο ΝΟΤΙΟΣ ΔΕΣΜΟΣ ΣΤΗ ΣΥΝΑΣΤΡΙΑ

Όταν ο Νότιος δεσμός σ΄ένα χάρτη πέφτει σ΄ένα πλανήτη του συντρόφου, η δύναμη είναι στο άτομο του νότιου δεσμού.

ΗΛΙΟΣ (σ΄ένα χάρτη) ΣΕ ΣΥΝΟΔΟ ΜΕ ΝΟΤΙΟ ΔΕΣΜΟ (στον άλλο)

Υπάρχει συχνά μια ανεξήγητη έλξη μεταξύ των ανθρώπων, που έχουν αυτή την όψη. Αυτοί που αποδέχονται την φιλοσοφική ιδέα της μετενσάρκωσης, εξηγούν αυτή την έλξη, σαν καρμική, που σημαίνει, ότι αυτοί οι άνθρωποι είχαν μια στενή σχέση σε παρελθούσα ζωή, με αμοιβαία προβλήματα, που ακόμη χρειάζονται λύση. Έτσι λοιπόν, έλκονται ξανά προκειμένου να δουλέψουν και να ξεπεράσουν αυτά τα προβλήματα. Υπάρχει συχνά η περίεργη αίσθηση, ότι ήδη γνωρίζουν ο ένας τον άλλον, υπάρχει μια παράξενη οικειότητα ανάμεσά τους. Φαίνεται ότι το άτομο του Νότιου δεσμού, έχει ισχυρότατη έλξη για το άτομο του Ήλιου, απ΄ότι αντίστροφα. Το άτομο του νότιου δεσμού δείχνει να ρουφά την ζωντάνια και την αυτοπεποίθηση του ατόμου που έχει τον Ήλιο. Το πεπρωμένο του ατόμου του νότιου δεσμού συχνά ανακατεύεται στις επιθυμίες και τις ανάγκες του ατόμου του Ήλιου. Πικρία αναπτύσσεται ανάμεσά τους με την πάροδο του χρόνου, με το άτομο του Νότιου δεσμού να υφαίνει έναν ιστό εξάρτησης γύρω απ΄το άτομο του Ήλιου.

ΗΛΙΟΣ ΣΕ ΤΡΙΓΩΝΟ, ΕΞΑΓΩΝΟ ΜΕ ΝΟΤΙΟ ΔΕΣΜΟ

Για το άτομο του Ήλιου, αυτός είναι ο τρόπος για ανάπτυξη μέσα στη σχέση. Χρειάζεται να καθιερώσουν ένα σχέδιο μαζί, ώστε να επιτευχθεί η ανάπτυξη. Αυτό μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε μια εξαίρετα δημιουργική συνεργασία μεταξύ τους.

ΗΛΙΟΣ ΣΕ ΤΕΤΡΑΓΩΝΟ, ΑΝΤΙΘΕΣΗ ΜΕ ΝΟΤΙΟ ΔΕΣΜΟ

Εδώ, υπάρχει ένας περιορισμός για το άτομο του ήλιου ανάλογα με το ζώδιο και τον οίκο. Υπάρχει απογοήτευση και εσωτερική πικρία από τη μεριά εκείνου που μονίμως περιορίζεται. Το άτομο του δεσμού ξεκινά ένα νέο κύκλο στη ζωή του ατόμου του ήλιου.

ΚΥΡΙΕ ΕΛΕΗΣΟΝ ΚΥΡΙΕ ΕΛΕΗΣΟΝ

Ενας βυζαντινος υμνος επικαιρος και διαχρονικος για την μωρεια καποιων που εχουν την αλαλεια της πτωσης τους δεκανικι του κοιλου φακου του μεσοεγκαφαλου τους.

ΑΣΤΡΟΛΟΓΙΚΗ ΜΟΥΣΙΚΗ

Sounding the Solar System

Neptune.jpg

I finished my magnum opus today: The Planets, for flute, oboe, alto sax, bassoon, percussion, synthesizer, viola, and contrabass, commissioned in stages by the wonderful Relache ensemble in Philadelphia. It's just over 70 minutes long, a 346-page score, in ten movements, my own personal Turangalila. I started writing it in January of 1994, sitting on a plane en route to Seattle next to Laurel Wyckoff, the ensemble's former flutist. They commissioned the first four movements as part of the Music in Motion project, by which ensembles and composers flew to distant cities to collaborate. The concept was that I would compose every morning and in the afternoons the ensemble would run through what I'd written. I used to be a fairly slow composer, and the plan terrified me. But, under pressure, I wrote the first movement, "Venus," in a week, and, realizing I could write as fast as someone told me to, I've been a fast composer ever since. In fact, I date the coalescence of my mature style from that trip. I was 38.


I had always planned to write more movements than the initial four I wrote then, and in 2001 Relache came up with another commission. Their instrumentation was so odd (so difficult to keep that viola audible) that I was reluctant to write a major work for them without assurance that they would play the whole thing, and for years they were in such financial straits that I was afraid to proceed. Also, their instrumentation had changed before, and I feared it might change again before I could finish. But last fall they called and said they were ready to record the work for CD, and told me to get my ass in gear and get those other movements in. So I have, and we start recording next month. Of course, the obvious question is, had my compositional habits so changed over 14 years that the end of the piece would come out very different from the beginning? But I had formed a firm idea back in the '90s of what each movement would do, and I stuck to my original conception. It's pretty consistent. "Venus" remains, I think, one of the best movements.


This is my big astrological piece, and of course, there are always people disappointed or horrifed by an admission of any interest in astrology, because most people know next to nothing about it, and have a caricatural view of it associated with newspaper sun-sign columns. I came to the subject via a respectable route. Reading Cage as a teenager interested me in the I Ching and the idea of synchronicity. That led to an interest in several other forms of mysticism, and, eventually, a close devotion to the music of Dane Rudhyar (a far more important and fascinating composer than all but a few of us cult fans will ever admit) led me to embark on reading some of Rudhyar's 30-odd books on astrology, beginning - as one must - with The Astrology of Personality. Add to that an addiction to the writings of Jung in grad school, and I got caught up in a Jungian conception of the field, based on synchronicity rather than causation. The most important recent writer on the subject is Liz Greene, a brilliant Jungian psychoanalyst.


There were other, more personal influences as well. I once worked for an arts organization whose entire staff were clients of the excellent astrologer Doris Hebel. Arts-world interest in the subject is vaster than people talk about. Almost any composer on the New York scene can tell you, if asked, their sun, moon, and rising signs. It's a social thing. Cage himself was a long-time client of the New York astrologer Julie Winter. I've collected music based on astrology, including Holst's eponymous work (one of my favorite orchestral warhorses), Constant Lambert's Horoscope, George Crumb's pieces, and the Interstellar Space recording of John Coltrane, with pieces entitled Mars, Leo, Venus, Jupiter Variation, and Saturn. I took courses in astrology at (apparently defunct) Isis Rising bookstore in Chicago, and, like Holst, I've done readings for many a fellow composer. In fact, in 1986 my income as a freelance critic was dwindling, and, having failed (I thought) in that field, I was looking into how to get started as an astrologer when from out of the blue Doug Simmons called me from the Village Voice and offered me a job. (If you know something about astrology, it may interest you to hear that on that very day, Saturn crossed my ascendant and Uranus transited the ruler of my house of employment. Very significant.)


I used to fantasize about reviewing concerts astrologically, in advance, like: "Don't bother attending Nic Collins's Roulette concert this Friday, Mercury is retrograding over his midheaven, and it's a sure bet his equipment will malfunction."


I have to add, too, that with 12 zodiac signs divided into 30 degrees each, with a wealth of experimental aspects like quintiles and septiles calculated within certain degrees of orb, astrology offers a number of delicious parallels with the 12 fluidly-defined pitch areas and continuum of consonances in microtonality. I've long savored the feeling of moving smoothly from one to the other without seeming to change the kinds of geometry I'm dealing with. And then, my fascination with rhythmic cycles going out of phase with each other, much manifested in The Planets, was always partly driven by a "music of the spheres" paradigm. Whatever mathematical way my brain is hardwired that drew me to Henry Cowell's rhythms and Ben Johnston's scales made me a sucker for astrology as well. Jupiter circles the sun every 12 years and Saturn every 29 years, with a conjunction approximately every 20 years? Now that's a rhythm, cut me off a piece of that! It's not all just, "Oh, you're a Libra, so you have trouble making up your mind." There's as much math as you want.


So comments challenging me to defend astrology will be ignored. I never defend astrology, nor proselytize for it, nor say I "believe" in it. I have no idea why astrological transits sometimes seem startlingly relevant, but, like the I Ching, it is an ancient worldview containing a wealth of psychological insight that greatly widened my understanding of human behavior. There are even astrologers who consider it no more than a kind of elaborate Rorschach test, which is certainly one way to understand it. Like anyone who knows anything about the field, I never read newspaper sun-sign columns except for amusement. If you want to bash me for taking an interest in it, go ahead and blast Cage and Coltrane, and feel free to throw me into their camp. I'll be honored.


My mother likes to say, "I don't believe in astrology; Aquarians never do."


In any case, as I say in the program notes to the piece, music may not have progressed since Holst wrote his Planets, but astrology has. Rudhyar ushered in an era of "free will" astrology, according to which transits are psychological forces which, if understood, can become channels to new understanding, by which otherwise fated-seeming actions can be avoided. As astrology is now understood as process rather than fate, and minimalism created a new musical paradigm of process-oriented composition, it was time for a new set of Planets to fuse musical processes with planetary ones, rather than the more conventional melodies and atmospheres of Holst's grand work. I have three more movements than Holst: I include the Sun and Moon, which astrology refers to as "planets," and also Pluto, which wasn't discovered until 13 years after Holst finished. (The demotion of Pluto by astronomers has had no effect on astrology.) Each movement follows a process that expresses the idea of its planet. "Sun" is an additive process in the shape of a sunrise. "Moon" is full of melodies and rhythms going out of phase. "Saturn" is a chaconne in which harsh, immobile dissonances are gradually replaced with gorgeous lines of counterpoint. "Uranus" is a jolting collage of constant surprises. The fog of "Neptune" (pictured) has the performers in eight unsynchronized tempos. And so on. John Luther Adams and I agreed that he'll write music about the earth, and I'll handle the rest of the solar system.


So after 14 years (half a Saturn cycle), I've finally completed the longest instrumental work I have any thought of writing. You can hear the movements that Relache has already performed here. They premiere the entire work in Philadelphia and possibly New York September 26 and 27, by which time we're hoping to have the CD available as well. It's a weight off my shoulders. I have dreams of orchestrating the work, but what would I do with a 70-minute orchestral score? Make a nice MIDI realization?

Χρησιμοποιείται για να δώσει ενέργεια και να διορθώσει δυσλειτουργίες στο φυσικό, αστρικό και διανοητικό πεδίο ενός ατόμου. Είναι μια θεραπευτική επιστήμη-τέχνη απαλλαγμένη από παρενέργειες και μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί παράλληλα με οποιαδήποτε άλλη θεραπεία της κλασσικής Ιατρικής. Η ραδιονικη Ιατρική δρα μέσω της ενέργειας οποτε μπορεί να εξασκηθεί και εξ αποστάσεως. Ο ραδιονικος θεραπευτής ενδιαφέρεται για το σύνολο του επιπεδου υγείας και ευημερίας ενός ασθενή. Η εκδηλωμένη ασθένεια και τα συμπτώματα είναι η ορατή κορφή ενός παγόβουνου. Το αόρατο τμήμα της που παραμένει σε βαθύτερα επίπεδα ύπαρξης του ατόμου που νοσεί είναι εκείνο που περιέχει τις αληθινές αιτίες της. Οι αρχές των Radionics ανακαλύφθηκαν από τον Αμερικανο γιατρό Dr. Abrams και η Αμερικανίδα χειροπρακτικος Dr. Drown συνέχισε το έργο του, ανακαλύπτοντας ότι ένας ασθενής μπορούσε πράγματι να θεραπευτεί από απόσταση, χρησιμοποιώντας ένα δείγμα αίματος σαν σύνδεσμο μεταξύ του ασθενούς και της ραδιονικης συσκευής. Αργότερα ο Lakhovsky διατύπωσε κάποιες βασικές αρχές της ραδιονικης: 1) Κάθε ζωντανός οργανισμός εκπέμπει ακτινοβολία 2) Οι ζωντανοί οργανισμοί μπορούν να δέχονται και να ανιχνεύουν κύματα 3) Κάθε ιπτάμενο ov κατέχει την ικανότητα εκπομπής και λήψηs κυμάτων ενώ τα ζώα που δεν μπορούν να πετάξουν έχουν μικρότερη αυτή την ικανότητα.
Για την ραδιονικη διάγνωση οι περισσότεροι θεραπευτές χρησιμοποιούν ένα μικρό δείγμα από τα μαλλιά του ασθενή για να δημιουργήσουν ένα σύνδεσμο μεταξύ του οργανου που πάσχει και του θεραπευτή. Μια από τις πολύτιμες ανακαλύψεις του Dr. Adams ήταν η δυνατότητα να ανακαλύπτει τις ασθένειες πριν αυτές εκδηλωθούν στο φυσικό σώμα. Κανένα σύστημα θεραπείας δεν είναι 100% αποτελεσματικό αλλα η εμπειρία των δεκάδων ετών έχει δείξει ότι η ραδιονικη ιατρική είναι αποτελεσματική. Στους ρευματισμούς, στις αλλεργίες, στις αρθρίτιδες, στις διανοητικές διαταραχές, στις μετεγχειρητικές καταστάσεις, στον έλεγχο του πόνου η ραδιονικη ιατρική είναι πολύτιμη.

When stargazers can see corporate troubles coming

When stargazers can see corporate troubles coming

By Rhymer Rigby

Northern Rock’s troubles came as no surprise to Christeen Skinner. She says: “You couldn’t have a more Saturnine name for a company if you tried. And Saturn was in a very vulnerable position at that time.”

Ms Skinner is not a horoscope-reading saver at a rival bank but one of Britain’s handful of corporate astrologers.

She claims to offer “the last word in competitive intelligence” to clients ranging from senior management of FTSE 100 companies to small businesses and lawyers.

Astrology may seem an unlikely tool to be adopted by such a supposedly rational activity as business, but Ms Skinner claims plenty of customers seeking guidance on corporate concerns.

She provides business customers with predictions based on corporate research and her knowledge of planetary movements.

“The important thing to remember,” she explains, “is that astrology isn’t a religious belief system and it doesn’t lend itself well to analysis. It’s a timing system.”

So, a company considering opening a new branch in Brussels will ask her which dates would be best or lawyers might quiz her on what to expect in an important meeting on a particular day.

Companies, however, very rarely contact her directly – and her services are unlikely to be put on corporate expenses. It tends to be individuals within organisations who ask her for strategic advice on their personal day-to-day business.

Perhaps understandably, she adds, executives who use astrologers tend to be rather coy about it, although the late Anita Roddick was quite open about her use of astrology.

In India, though, people are far less reticent. Bejan Daruwallah, one of the subcontinent’s best-known astrologers, says he makes predictions for some of the biggest companies in India.

“I do all sorts of forecasting,” he explains, “looking at areas such as what new products to launch, how the market will respond and so on.”

His prominence is such that, in 2000, Mr Daruwallah was invited to meet the country’s prime minister to give his views on the running of the country.

Indian businesses’ use of astrology, according to Mr Daruwallah, is widespread. Some company owners will not select a chairman without first looking at the candidate’s horoscope. Key decisions with big financial implications – notably in the film industry – can rest on the astrologers’ say-so.

One reason astrology is so popular in business Mr Daruwallah suggests, is that if someone takes astrological advice and then makes a bad decision they can use the astrologer as a scapegoat.

In the US, the best-known astrological moneyman is Henry Weingarten, who runs several funds that invest on the basis of astrological predictions. He cites the success of his (unaudited) fund as evidence of astrology’s efficacy.

Mr Weingarten, who works with a number of large companies, says astrology gives superior results. “You can make money without it but anyone who doesn’t use it is at a serious disadvantage. We do make mistakes, but it is a superior tool.”

To the sceptics, Ms Skinner points out that people are in business to make money. “They’re canny and, if it doesn’t work for them, then why would they use it?”

Mr Daruwallah says that, for many people, chatting things over with an astrologer may provide a sounding board or a confidant-cum-consigliere.

In any case, they argue, a lot of thinking in business, from gut feelings to management fads, doesn’t stand up to scientific scrutiny.

Moreover, in countries where following planetary advice is widespread, corporate astrology could have an element of self- fulfilling prophecy. especially in areas such as markets, where a herd mentality rules. But some do not need such a nuanced, cautious persuasion.

Last year – the year of the dog – the Jilin Jiangshan Human Resources Development Company in China took astrological human resources to its logical extreme when it advertised for staff who were born only in the year of the dog.

The company’s HR manager, Mr Dong, says explains: “We consider the requirement necessary to select employees who match our corporate culture.” Naturally, he was himself a dog.

ASTROLOGY Like a virgo

AS A DIEHARD astrology sceptic—a common trait in Sagittarians—I never thought my birth date revealed much about anything, apart from pinpointing that fateful month all those years ago when my parents were feeling frisky. But now I have to consider that it may be responsible for my hopelessness at cricket, my rejection from medical school and the fact that I'm not tall enough to reach the top shelf in the supermarket. I'm also likely to live to a ripe old age, and although I'll probably grow fat if I do, at least I'm unlikely to get depressed about it.

Astrology has had an avid following since the year dot. It has played an important role in world affairs, even guiding the decisions of world leaders from Emperor Tiberius to US President Ronald Reagan. But for millennia, sceptics have relentlessly derided astrology as a pseudoscience that preys on our gullibility. While fans of astrology turn to the stars, scientists have been turning to statistics. And most scientific work casts astrology in a pretty dim light.

But a growing body of research shows that there might indeed be some curious seasonal trends in our physical and mental characteristics. A steady trickle of papers published in learned journals have claimed that the prevalence of all sorts of skills and traits varies with date of birth.

For a start, there are some intriguing trends in sporting prowess. A study by psychologist Ad Dudink of the University of Amsterdam found that English professional soccer players in the 1991-92 season were almost twice as likely to have been born between September and November as during the summer months. And it's not just footballers who can celebrate their birthdays en masse; cricketers are also fruits of the season. Stephen Edwards from the University of Wales, Swansea found that fast bowlers were more likely to have been born in the early part of the year—although for some reason, he found no such trend among spin bowlers.

These strange correlations aren't confined to sporting spheres. Another study from Swansea, found that children born in Britain during the summer were 50 per cent more likely to need special help at school. Two more studies, one from Portugal and the other from Italy, found that more medical students have birthdays between April and June than could be explained by chance alone.

A deeper trawl through the literature nets evidence for seasonal correlations in average height, weight and longevity. In 1998, Gerhard Weber of the University of Vienna completed a study examining the average heights of over half a million 18-year-olds conscripted into the Austrian army over a 10-year period. He found a striking relationship between average height and month of birth, with men born between March and May being on average 6 millimetres taller then those born between September and November.

Curiously, people born in winter tend to get fatter in later life, according to a study soon to be published by David Phillips of the Medical Research Council Environmental Epidemiology Unit (EEU) in Southampton. Winter babies also tend to live longer, according to Gabrielle Doblhammer of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany.

Perhaps the most unusual seasonal effect is found amongst scientists who support revolutionary theories. It seems that academics who were quick to support controversial theories such as relativity and evolution tended to be born between October and April. "I wasn't actually looking at birthdays, I was trying to understand why scientific revolutions like relativity come about, but I suppose I was unconsciously clocking up patterns in my head," says Michael Holmes, a psychologist from Queen Margaret's College in Edinburgh, who published his study in Nature (vol 373, p 468). "I didn't take it too seriously, but then I looked at evolution and found the same summer-winter pattern," he says.

Festive frolicks

Why there should be any patterns at all is anyone's guess. One factor that confuses the issue is that birth and death rates fluctuate with the seasons. There is a peak in births in September—usually blamed on people getting carried away at Christmas and New Year festivities—and random rises in birth rates after prolonged power cuts or strikes by electricity workers. Harsh weather increases the number of deaths, and frail people often cling to life like limpets as they approach their birthday, only to give up the ghost shortly after. All these effects can skew the pattern.

But these fluctuations can't account for all the correlations that scientists find. Of course, there are more mundane explanations for variations in sporting and academic ability, such as the timing of birth in relation to the academic year and the start of the sporting season. But it's also possible that there is a biological basis to these trends. "It could have something to do with external influences like sunlight and temperature," says Weber.

Ideas like this are moving the study of seasonal effects out of the realms of astrology into the arena of epidemiology. A growing body of literature that has languished largely unnoticed for at least 70 years shows that the season in which you are born could influence your chances of developing diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, schizophrenia, depression and allergies such as hay fever and asthma.

"When I first published my results in the 1970s, people said this can't possibly be true," says Fuller Torrey a research psychiatrist at the Uniform Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He has undertaken a review of studies relating to schizophrenia and manic depression from 1929 to the present day, and found that more people with these disorders were born between December and April than would be expected by chance. He points out that there are more than 250 studies now backing this trend. "Whatever hypothesis you use to explain schizophrenia needs to account for this," he says.

"The fact that seasonal effects exist shows that environmental factors might exist," says Patricia McKinney, an epidemiologist at Leeds University, who has researched childhood diabetes. "One interpretation is that there are more infections occurring during pregnancy and early life that have some role in the development of childhood diseases." The role of viruses could explain a lot here too, as their activity and prevalence varies with the time of year—as anybody who's caught a dose of the flu in winter will testify.

David Barker of the EEU in Southampton has done some of the pioneering work looking at how what happens to a fetus in the womb can influence later life (see New Scientist, 17 July, p 27). "It's a nonsense to say that seasonal correlations are artefacts. Every human is massively programmed by in utero effects," he says. "Science is stuck in a bit of a rut saying that what happens at conception is very important as is what happens when you are forty, but there is this big gap in between."

Of course, as with all statistical correlations, there is always the possibility of the odd spurious result. Rory Collins of the Clinical Trial Service Unit at Oxford University demonstrated this beautifully in his study on the effects of daily doses of aspirin on people who had suffered a heart attack or a stroke. He found that aspirin significantly decreased the risk of a second attack. But a less highly publicised facet of the work was that when Collins analysed the data in monthly blocks, split according to star sign, it looked as though giving aspirins to Geminis or Librans actually increased the risk of a second attack. "I still think our study shows it's good to give heart attack patients aspirin regardless of their star sign," says Collins.

These spurious findings show just how easily strange correlations arise purely by chance. If you divide the data from a study into enough different subgroups, eventually one particular group will contain people who, possibly for entirely different reasons, might show trends which contradict those emerging from the study as a whole. "Ours was just statistical sleight of hand to show how we could manipulate the data and get spurious results," says Collins.

So, where does all this leave astrology? Is there more to it than the sceptics would have us believe, or should it just be slung in the mumbo-jumbo dustbin of scientific history? Well, I'm afraid I'll have to leave that one up to you. My horoscope says that this week is a bad time for me to make important decisions.

Αστρολογια η πρωτη ελληνικη Πρωτομαγια


Υποδεχόμενοι την Εργατική Πρωτομαγιά, που "δεν είναι αργία - είναι απεργία", θυμόμαστε και την ιστορία της. Ανακαλούμε στη μνήμη μας ότι ορίστηκε από το συνέδριο της Β' Διεθνούς, που συνήλθε στο Παρίσι το 1889, ημέρα αγωνιστικής κινητοποίησης και διεθνούς αλληλεγγύης της εργατικής τάξης στη μνήμη των απεργών εργατών του Σικάγου που δολοφονήθηκαν την 1η Μάη 1886.
Στην Ελλάδα η πρώτη μαζική πρωτομαγιάτικη συγκέντρωση έγινε στο Παναθηναϊκό Στάδιο στις 2 Μάη 1893 (μετατέθηκε κατά μία ημέρα για να γίνει Κυριακή), με οργανωτή τον "Κεντρικό Σοσιαλιστικό Σύλλογο". Σύλλογο που είχε ιδρύσει το 1890 ο τότε 25χρονος φοιτητής του Πολυτεχνείου Σταύρος Καλλέργης, εκδίδοντας και εφημερίδα με τον τίτλο "Σοσιαλιστής".

"Έγραφε ο 'Σοσιαλιστής' του Μάη 1893 - εκ τίνος λίθου ο πολίτης Σταύρος Καλλέργης είπε τα εξής περίπου: Ο σκοπός της συναθροίσεώς μας ενταύθα είναι να υπογράψωμεν ψήφισμα δια να δωθή εν καιρώ εις την Βουλήν, το ψήφισμα δε έχει ως εξής:

Συνελθόντες σήμερον την 2 Μαϊου ημέραν Κυριακήν και ώραν 5 μ.μ. εν τω αρχαίω Σταδίω οι κάτωθι υπογεγραμμένοι μέλη του 'Κεντρικού Σοσιαλιστικού Συλλόγου' και υπό μισθόν πάσχοντες εψηφίσαμεν.

Α) Την Κυριακήν να κλείωσι τα καταστήματα, καθ' όλην την ημέραν, και οι πολίται να αναπαύωνται.

Β) Οι εργάται να εργάζωνται 8 ώρας την ημέραν.

Γ) Ν' απονέμητε σύνταξις εις τους εκ της εργασίας παθόντας και καταστάντας ανικάνους προς διατήρησιν εαυτών και της οικογενείας των.

Δ) Το συμβούλιο του "Κεντρικού Σοσιαλιστικού Συλλόγου" να δώση το ψήφισμα εις την Βουλήν.

Η πρώτη αυτή εργατική συγκέντρωση απασχόλησε και τον υπόλοιπο τύπο. Έχουν ξεχωριστό ενδιαφέρον τα όσα έγραψε η συντηρητική 'ΕΦΗΜΕΡΙΣ' στο φύλλο της 3ης Μαϊου 1893:

'Οι ενταύθα σοσιαλισταί, καθ' ά είχαν προαναγγείλει, συναθροίσθησαν χθες, περί την 5ην ώραν μ.μ. εις το αρχαίον Στάδιον. Οι πλείστοι εξ αυτών ήσαν εργάται, ευπρεπώς κατά το πλείστον ενδεδυμένοι, με ερυθράς κονκάρδας επί της κομβιοδόχης, και πολύ ήσυχοι άνθρωποι. Αυτοί είναι οι πρώτοι σοσιαλισταί εν Ελλάδι και συνήλθον εις το πρώτον αυτών συλλαλητήριον'.

Περίπου 500 υπόγραψαν το ψήφισμα, του οποίου η διακίνηση συνεχίστηκε και τελικά κατατέθηκε στη Βουλή, με 2000 υπογραφές, την 1η Δεκεμβρίου 1893. Όμως, περιφρονητικά αντιμετωπίστηκε από τον Πρόεδρο της Βουλής και ο Καλλέργης, που παρακολουθούσε από τα θεωρεία των δημοσιογράφων (όπου είχε πρόσβαση ως εκδότης του 'Σοσιαλιστή'), άρχισε να φωνάζει και να διαμαρτύρεται. Το αποτέλεσμα ήταν να διαταχθεί η σύλληψή του, να κακοποιηθεί από τη φρουρά και να κρατηθεί στο δεύτερο αστυνομικό τμήμα, όπου βρέθηκε αντιμέτωπος με τον περιβόητο Μπαϊρακτάρη.

Αφού κρατήθηκε δυο ημέρες, ο Καλλέργης οδηγήθηκε στον Εισαγγελέα, ο οποίος τον παρέπεμψε σε δίκη στις 9.12.1893, που είχε ως αποτέλεσμα την καταδίκη του σε φυλάκιση δέκα ημερών. "Αυτή ήταν η πρώτη ουσιαστική σύγκρουσή του με τις Αρχές", γράφει ο γιος του Λυκούργος, ο γνωστός ηθοποιός και πρώην βουλευτής του ΚΚΕ, που έχει και ο ίδιος αγωνιστική θητεία πολλών δεκαετιών στο αριστερό κίνημα (την οποία και σήμερα συνεχίζει από τις γραμμές του ΣΥΝ).

Η δράση του Καλλέργη δεν περιορίστηκε στην Αθήνα: "Με τις ενέργειες του Καλλέργη -γράφει ο Γιάννης Κορδάτος- είχε ιδρυθεί στη Σύρα "Σοσιαλιστική Λέσχη" (Ιούλης 1894). Το ίδιο έγινε και στο Λαύριο. Επίσης και στην Κέρκυρα ιδρύθηκε "Σοσιαλιστικός Σύλλογος" που επηρεαζόταν ιδεολογικά από τον Καλλέργη και την ομάδα του. Σ' όλες σχεδόν τις μεγάλες πόλεις υπάρχουν τώρα σοσιαλιστές. Το ξύπνημα άρχισε". (Ιστορία του Ελληνικού Εργατικού Κινήματος, σελ. 70)

Όμως, από τη μια το κυνηγητό της αστυνομίας και από την άλλη η φαγωμάρα των διαφόρων σοσιαλιστικών ομάδων δυσκολεύουν το έργο του Καλλέργη, ο οποίος φεύγει για το Παρίσι στο τέλος του 1894, όπου έμεινε πάνω από ένα χρόνο και συνεργάστηκε με πολλούς γνωστούς σοσιαλιστές της εποχής.

Επιστρέφοντας στην Αθήνα, επανεκδίδει τον "Σοσιαλιστή", όμως οι διωγμοί και οι οικονομικές δυσκολίες τον αναγκάζουν να φύγει για την Κρήτη, όπου εκλέγεται "αντιπρόσωπος στην Επαναστατικήν Συνέλευσιν του Αρκαδίου", όπως γράφει ο ίδιος. Επιστρέφοντας στην Αθήνα, εκδίδει ξανά τον "Σοσιαλιστή" (το τελευταίο φύλλο που σώζεται είναι του 1902), τελικά όμως φεύγει το 1905 οριστικά για την Κρήτη (Μπραχήμο Ρεθύμνης). Εκεί παντρεύτηκε, το 1908, τη Μαρία Γιακουμάκη με την οποία απέκτησε 9 παιδιά. Πέθανε το 1926, σε ηλικία 61 ετών.

"Ο Καλλέργης -γράφει ο Γιάννης Κορδάτος- αν και δεν ήταν σοσιαλιστής με ξεκαθαρισμένες αρχές και δεν ήξερε καλά τι είναι επιστημονικός σοσιαλισμός (μαρξισμός), ήταν ο αγωνιστής που πλησίασε πιο πολύ τις μάζες, που καταδιώχθηκε, φυλακίστηκε, έχασε την περιουσία του, δυστύχησε και ίσαμε τα τελευταία του διατήρησε την πίστη του στο σοσιαλισμό".

Does the Earth's magnetic field cause suicides?

Does the Earth's magnetic field cause suicides?

  • 13:39 24 April 2008

Many animals can sense the Earth's magnetic field, so why not people, asks Oleg Shumilov of the Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia.Shumilov looked at activity in the Earth's geomagnetic field from 1948 to 1997 and found that it grouped into three seasonal peaks every year: one from March to May, another in July and the last in October.Surprisingly, he also found that the geomagnetism peaks matched up with peaks in the number of suicides in the northern Russian city of Kirovsk over the same period.Shumilov acknowledges that a correlation like this does not necessarily mean there is a causal link, but he points out that there have been several other studies suggesting a link between human health and geomagnetism.For example, a 2006 review of research on cardiovascular health and disturbances in the geomagnetic field in the journal Surveys in Geophysics (DOI: 10.1007/s10712-006-9010-7) concluded that a link was possible and that the effects seemed to be more pronounced at high latitudes.winned peaksThe review's author, Michael Rycroft, formerly head of the European Geosciences Society, says that geomagnetic health problems affect 10 to 15% of the population."Others have found similar things [to Shumilov's results] in independent sets of data," says Rycroft. "It suggests something may be linking the two factors."A 2006 Australian study, for example, also found a correlation between peaks in suicide numbers and geomagnetic activity (Bioelectromagnetics, vol. 27 p 155).Brain stormsPsychiatrists too have noticed a correlation between geomagnetic activity and suicide rates. A review of 13 years of South African data on suicides and magnetic storms in South African Psychiatry Review, vol. 6 p. 24) suggested a link.Geomagnetic storms – periods of high geomagnetic activity caused by large solar flares – have also been linked to clinical depression.In 1994, a study was published suggesting a 36.2% increase in the number of men admitted into hospital for depression in the second week after geomagnetic storms (British Journal of Psychiatry vol 164, p 403).What may be the cause of the link, if there is one, remains unknown. "The intriguing correlation between geomagnetism and suicide justifies more research into its mechanism," says Rycroft.Environmental cue?"The most plausible explanation for the association between geomagnetic activity and depression and suicide is that geomagnetic storms can desynchronise circadian rhythms and melatonin production," says Kelly Posner, a psychiatrist at Columbia University in the US.The pineal gland, which regulates circadian rhythm and melatonin production, is sensitive to magnetic fields. "The circadian regulatory system depends upon repeated environmental cues to [synchronise] internal clocks," says Posner. "Magnetic fields may be one of these environmental cues."Geomagnetic storms could disrupt body clocks, precipitating seasonal affective disorder and therefore increase suicide risk, Posner told New Scientist.There seems little doubt that the brain responds to electromagnetic fields – coils that generate electromagnetic fields can trigger muscular twitches when placed over a person's skull.However, Shumilov, who was presenting his data at the European Geoscience Union (EGU) annual meeting in Vienna, Austria, last week, does not believe geomagnetic activity influences everyone equally.Suicide statisticsHe also presented hospital data from 6000 pregnant women who had routine scans of their fetus's heart rates between 1995 and 2003. In 15% of the fetuses, periods of disturbances in their heart rates coincided with periods of high geomagnetic activity.Shumilov accepts that light levels in northern countries can influence depression, but believes that geomagnetism may be another factor, and one that is under-appreciated.The trouble with studying the causes of suicide is that it is a rare condition, says Klaus Ebmeier, a psychiatrist at the University of Oxford. "You are bound to get spurious effects. A study of the causes would have to enrol a country's entire population."Cosmo Hallstrom, a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, agrees. "You have to be very careful with suicide statistics," he says. "Countries report them differently. Catholic countries are very reluctant to diagnose suicide. Scandinavian countries consider it a social injustice not to."

Συνεντευξη ενος αμερικανου χρηματιστη που χρησιμοποει Αστρολογια

Hi, my name is Dave Goodboy. I'm Executive Producer of RealWorldTrading.com, and today I'm pleased to be joined by world-renowned financial astrologer Arch Crawford (www.crawfordperspectives.com). I fully realize that this is a highly controversial and unusual subject, however, Arch has one of the best documented historic records for correct market calls of any market analyst. In fact, over the last 3 and 6 month time frames,Timer Digest, has ranked him #3 of all market letter writers. Jump on board for a journey into this esoteric subject!

Dave: How are you today, Arch?

Arch: Very well, thank you.

Dave: Let's start at the beginning. What first got you interested in the financial markets?

Arch: I always loved numbers as a child as used to extract square roots for fun and I saw my Father looking in the paper an there's this whole page of numbers. I loved the numbers so I started watching the stock market, pulling out stocks under $10 through the A's, B's and halfway through through the C's--and there were a lot of them in 1954. The methods I studied were basically technical. In 1960, I kept a chart of US Steel --there was a big steel strike--and I kept the headlines on the chart. And it made sense whatsoever.

Dave: There was no correlation between the headline and the stock movement?

Arch: Exactly. One of the first books I read was Darvas' How I Made $2 Million In The Stock Market. He was a dancer and he used a simple trend-following method. A couple of years later I went to work for Merrill Lynch in Raleigh N.C., putting up prices on a chalkboard and 2-3 months after that they got an electronic board and I became an assistant in the cage.

Dave: This is the early '60s?

Arch: Yes, this is 1961. I had been studying math and physics at the University of North Carolina and I started off with really great grades and they were beginning to drift lower and lower and I figured I would go do what I wanted to do before I got thrown out, so I left while I still had decent grades. I told Merrill Lynch "this is what I want to do with my life, send me to New York" and they said,"don't be ridiculous." So later, after I'd been there a while I said I quit, I'm going to New York and look for a job. They said "don't do that,we'll transfer you." They said "what department would you like?" and I told them technical research. They sent me right up to the research department but the technical things I was doing at that time was I was actually drawing the weekly charts of Merrill Lynch's industry specialists and that took me three days to do 45 charts. While I was in Raleigh the commodity guy there got me Edwards & McGee and they were getting the trendline charts from Commodity Research Bureau and it had 600 charts every week. I use to draw all the lines and supports and resistance and trendlines and look at the moving averages and make a projection as to what was going to happen and go back and look at last week's while I'm doing this week's and see what worked out and what didn't. I'm self-taught from that standpoint, using Edwards & McGee. I was spending every night in the library. I made friends with the librarian--an elderly Irish lady--and I bought lottery tickets from her, so she let me stay in the library at night and lock it up at 12:00. I was looking at the chart of the market and it was beginning to form a multiple head and shoulder top pattern.

Dave: When you say the market, you mean the Dow?

Arch: The Dow Jones, yes. I said if this pattern remains symmetrical, the market will top in the middle of December and it will crash next year in 1962. It topped in the middle of December. It finished the head and shoulder top and broke down on April 13, the day Kennedy made the steel companies roll back the price increases. That broke the neckline and it started down and then it drifted down and rallied a bit and drifted down and rallied a bit and then started turning very nasty and we went into the crash of '62. And I was going around saying "it's going to crash" and I got the nickname "Crash Crawford." And then it actually did it--the worst crash since 1929.

Dave: That was your first major accurate prediction?

Arch: Yes. I also turned 21 in the meantime on April17th and inherited $1000 from a sweet aunt who had died and I put it all in puts and made seven times my money, so that was my beginning.

Dave: How did you go from being a technical analyst to a financial astrologer?

Arch: On the day before my birthday, in 1963, the Wall Street Journal had a front-page article about three guys who were predicting the market using astrology. The credible one was Lt. Cmdr. David Williams who had been head of the purchasing department for Con Ed for 40 years and a Lt Cmdr in the Navy in the Big War and he was a fine gentleman. Williams had written a pamphlet called Astro-economics in 1955. I went out and bought it. Next to that pamphlet in this metaphysical bookstore was Donald Bradley Stock Market Prediction and he had developed a model using all two-planet pairs. I started keeping his model by hand and--thank God for computers! It was a lot of calculation but it was worth it. The market would follow that line for several months and then if would go off and do something else and for several months it would be off of that line and then it would come back onto it sometime later.

Dave: What particular planets?

Arch: All of them. Ten counting the Sun and moon. The Moon didn't count in them because it was too quick. What I found in following that for a while was that when there is a large configuration involving several planets it becomes what the Mandelbrot set, the chaos people, call a "strange attractor" which would take the market up or down to the date of this large configuration was most exact or to the last aspect between whatever planets were involved and then the market would turn and go the other way.

Dave: When you say configuration, what do you mean?

Arch: A number of planets in harmonic relationship. A harmonic relationship of one means two planets have the same longitude in space.

Dave: They're in line with each other?

Arch: Yes. Looking out from Earth, they're in the same place. A harmonic of two is like a full Moon where one is opposite the other separating the sky into two different parts, the left half and the right half. The second harmonic is 180 degrees, which is one-half of the 360 degree circle, and the third harmonic is 120 degrees which is one-third of the 260 degree circle. So a trine is 120 degrees and a square is 90 degrees. These are the ones most traditional astrologers use.

Dave: You noticed that these configurations would affect the market,am I following you?

Arch: Oh absolutely. When several planets are involved instead of just these two-planet pairs, it becomes a unique event and that's what makes it a strange attractor and the market will pull up to that day and then down or down to that day and then up.

Dave: How many times a month do these strange attractors occur?

Arch: Two to three times a year on a good year. Other than that they follow the Bradley somewhat.

Dave: You found David Williams' pamphlet and the Bradley book...

Arch: First I got a book of planetary positions and I noticed when they were in the one-third and one-sixth harmonic harmonic the market tended to go up and when they were in the second and fourth harmonic it tended to go down. That's what I entered into my notes and that's what Williams said in his book. In terms of statistics there are so many factors involved that a lot of scientists can look at this and they will say "Ahh, there are not statistically meaningful" but you can combine them in two or three or four cycles together and they become extremely meaningful.

Dave: These strange attractors that occur two to three times per year... is it something that changes the trend of the market?

Arch: Yes. It'll either take them up to that day and drop it or down to that day and rally it.

Dave: This really sounds crazy. What's the theory behind the concept? Why does it seem to work?

Arch: You got me. The closest I know about was from another guy named John Nelson, who was a radio propagation specialist for RCA Corporation, and they put him on the top of a building with a telescope and said "figure out when the darn sunspots are going to blow up" because before the days of the satellites they were sending dataflow across the North Atlantic. When the sunspots hit they had to switch to sending to South America and then over to Africa and then back up to Europe and it was time consuming and costly so they wanted to know when these things were going to happen. Nelson by regular cyclical means got up to a 65% accuracy rate which was not satisfactory at all and someone said "why dont you look at the planetary alignment around the sun at the times of these sunspots because that may give you a handle on what you want to look at." So he took the 13 worst magnetic storms on the Earth that were on record with RCA and drew the horoscope heliocentric chart--heliocentric meaning the Sun in the middle. He was totally blown away by all the harmonic ratios in the days that these sunspots popped off in a big way.

Dave: So it's basically somehow affecting the magnetic field which in turn is affecting people's behavior?

Arch: Yes. Nelson and I figured that if there is a powerful alignment heliocentrically they'll blow the sunspots out and if it happens to be a high tidal force--a new Moon or full Moon--then the ionized layer of the Earth's atmosphere will be brought down close to the Earth and make people crazy.

Dave: Let me see if I follow you. It affects people's emotions--making them feel elated--therefore they will buy stocks, and when they're depressed hit they will sell stocks?

Arch: When the electrons hit it tends to be depressive and when the protons hit hit it tends to be elating and so if you get a major solar flare it tends to throw a lot of heavy protons but the electrons get there first so the first couple of days the market drops and then when the protons get there it goes screaming the heck up. But there are a lot of complications with that. In the 1987 crash, there were the largest number of electrons hitting the atmosphere that I had ever seen for the longest period of time. When the electrons got over 1 to the third per cubic centimeter, that's when the market started coming apart. It proceeded on down on Friday--of course that was options expiration--and crashed on more Monday. The strategy at that time was if the market went down a certain amount you sell S&P futures are you are protected to whatever level. The system they had would protect you down to five standard deviations from normal. Monday, it was a seven standard deviation event and the whole system was threatening to come down.

Dave: What happened the day after that?

Arch: The next morning it was down like another 200 points in 15 minutes with hardly any stocks open. The Fed said "anybody comes in from Wall Street that wants money, give it to them" and the market came roaring back and was positive by 10:00.

Dave: Let's talk about another astrological event--the eclipse. Are there any correlations between market movements and eclipses?

Arch: Yes. They are the most powerful events, taken individually. W.D. Gann wrote seven books about the market and he was an astrologer but he rarely said anything specifically about astrology in all of those books.

Dave: He was very vague in everything he wrote.

Arch: Well he was very secretive about it and swore the people around him to secrecy relative to astrology. David Williams actually introduced me to a friend of his who had worked for Gann and he said "yeah he swore us to secrecy but we didn't know anything anyway." (laughs)

Dave: What happens during a solar eclipse?

Arch: The solar eclipse tends to have a longer-term effect, not necessarily so much on the day it happens--in other words it will be a more important event, but the lunar eclipse tends to be more dramatic for one day or two days.

Dave: How many eclipses are there per year?

Arch: There are 3-5 eclipses per year. Around the time of the 1987 crash, The Wall Street Journal ran an article about a guy who had come up with a Mayan calendar date that was very important, and that was supposed to be August 17 and all the new new age people were going to sacred sites and dancing and drumming and praying and meditating and doing what they do. It was called the "Harmonic Convergence." It was supposed to be this Mayan date. Well I looked at this date and I didn't see anything . I looked forward and here seven days later was the tightest 5-body conjunction in at least 800 years and they were all visible bodies. And I said "that is what the Mayans were talking about." I said "this market will peak on August 24, give or take three days, after which we will have a horrendous crash." The market peaked at Noon on August 25 and it dropped and dropped and it stopped and turned violently on the day of the solar eclipse on the Fall equinox and it had the biggest up-day in history, to that date, in points. It broke down in the morning, scared the heck out of traders, turned around and had the biggest up-day in history. Then it rallied for two weeks; at the top of that rally we had the biggest earthquake in Southern California in at least seven years and two days later we had the lunar eclipse, which was the biggest down day in history to date. So the lunar eclipse touched off the earthquake.

Dave: Does astro work the same across all markets?

Arch: These are things that act on emotion and it depends on what markets are moving emotionally at the time. Another thing I discovered in calculating these cycles was the Mars/Uranus cycle and it's just about a two year cycle. The market does not crash every two years but every crash that's taken place in the last 100 years took place in the same 40% of that cycle...every one. So I watch those periods whether we are technically weak or strong, whether we are set up for a possible bad time or not. I said on September 4, 2001 "this market may crash by October 5." The week after the towers fell we had the worst percentage decline since the fall of France in 1940. I also said that there was an event--I think it was Mercury changing direction on the Fall equinox which was September 21--and I said that may make that timeframe more important than normal, and that was the low actually, the 21st--within one day I think Friday was the low and the equinox was Saturday morning. Also, in that September 4, 2001 letter I said the United States will be at war around the weekend of the 7th or 8th of September

Dave: Impressive. What do you see for the near future?

Arch: There was nobody else--astrologer or psychic or card reader or anybody else--that had anything close to that. We are not in that crash period now but the Bradley model shows a high around the middle of July and goes down all the rest of this year. I think it looks pretty bad right now and it could turn down right now. We may have a hard hit for 2-3 days next week and then a rally into July, which may or may not make a higher high and then down the rest of the year. The next crash cycle takes place from August '06 to March '07.

Dave: When you say crash cycle, you mean a major 1987 style event?

Arch: Yes, The Mars/Uranus cycle, where every crash has taken place.

Dave: What do you see for gold?

Arch: I believe gold will hit a high maybe Monday and will then drop into the summer and after that we will have a super up-move in it beginning around Labor Day and going for close to a year. Gold, oil, silver, metals, CRB Index generally. Inflation hedges are ruled by Neptune for whatever reason. I've never paid any attention to rulership they were telling me that when Saturn came up to 0 degrees Leo the price of gold would drop because Saturn is contractive and I said that's horsepuckey. Well, the day that Saturn hit Leo the IMF announced it would sell tons and tons of gold over months and months of time and it was the only limit move that year. But, it was the day Saturn hit in apparent right ascension, which is the way astronomers look at the sky, not ecliptic longitude, which is the way astrologers look at the sky. So I learned a little about rulership stuff and I said "oh my God." Why should some rulership thing work? I don't know...

Dave: Is the rulership something astrologers learned from the ancients?

Arch: The ancients had it pretty much locked up in terms of what was supposed to happen theoretically in those times, yes.

Dave: Arch, we're almost out of time. I look forward to speaking with you again soon.

Arch: It's been fun and I always enjoy talking about this work; it's meant a lot to me for many many years.
