  • Coming Full Circle - The June 8, 2004 Transit of Venus by Pat White
    In our very first issue of AUGuries, we wrote about the October 10, 2002 retrograde station of Venus, and the Sun-Venus inferior conjunction that was to follow on October 31, 2002. In that issue we mentioned 584-day cycle from one inferior conjunction of Venus to the next. We also noted Venus's traditional association with the Arabs and Islam.

    Now, almost exactly 19 months have passed -- the length of another complete Venus cycle. On May 17, 2004, Venus again made a retrograde station, this time at 26 Gemini 08 (on the day that Neptune also went retrograde, the New York Stock Exchange had its 202nd anniversary, the Indian stock exchange experienced its greatest ever one-day drop, and same-sex marriages began in Massachusetts). Following this, on June 8, Venus makes her next inferior conjunction with the Sun, at 17 Gemini 53.

    Tech Tip of the Month - The Ins and Outs of the Solar Fire Page Designer by Madalyn Hillis-Dineen
    Solar Fire's page designer is a major factor in making the program one of the most flexible and customizable pieces of software on the market. There are a number of page designs that come with the program that are geared to a variety of astro techniques and disciplines. But, you can also design your own page and even make that page your default view. Solar Fire's page designer allows you to add objects and the flexible lists columns allow you to add all sorts of information about a planet or point. You can even marry a certain wheel design or displayed points file to a particular design, making it quite easy to create highly specialized chart forms.

    Symmetrical Astrology: An Overview of Its Origins by Gary Christen
    The 20th century was an extraordinary era for astrology. In the previous 250 years, Western astrology had been discarded by the intellectual elite. Just prior to 1900, astrology began emerging from an intellectual free-fall, and for the first time in many centuries, it began to become innovative again.

    Since the 1600s astrology had been surviving in the nooks and crannies of Western society. During this period it had undergone the decay of its institutional knowledge to the point that what was being passed off as astrological knowledge was basically watered-down pap, bearing little resemblance to the vital forms of astrology that had been practiced just a few centuries earlier. See what being an intellectual outcast can do to a body of knowledge in a few years? When first-rate minds leave the scene, things dumb down very fast.
