Selection criteria

The following links have been selected, if the article in question has left an impression, which is so strong that I remember the content months or even years later. In other words, these articles are the ones, which I consider "the best of the best", when it comes to exploratory astrology.

The Newtonian Merry-go-round

The Newtonian Merry-go-round is a highly recommendable article by Bernadette Brady and an important inspiration for the creation of

Astrology News Service

Astrology News Service (or merely ANS) is a site, where astrology is promoted in a journalistic way.

One of the best articles is Astrology’s Critics a Dedicated Bunch, where Edward Snow explains how the anti-astrology league operates.

Another highlight is Void Moon Doesn’t Bode Well For Investments, which I find great, because it demonstrates how astrology can be useful on a very practical level.

The Folly of Scientism

The Folly of Scientism by Austin L. Hughes is highly recommendable. It gives a good explanation to how science changed from being science (= exploratory, inquisitive, curious) to scientism (dogmatic, biased, intolerant). It also gives an explaination to why science or rather scientism hates astrology.

Wikipedia has been hijacked by 'guerrilla skeptics'!

Astrologer Robert Curry, the author of the billiant article Wikipedia has been hijacked by 'guerrilla skeptics'!, is more a political campaigner for astrology than a researcher. What he defends is traditional astrology and the kind of astrology, which constitutes a business for most astrologers. When I read his articles, I often miss a critical view on astrology as it is practiced. Nevertheless, this particular article reveals, why you cannot trust the content of Wikipedia, when it comes to astrology and related subjects.

Real Astrology

John Frawley is my favourite astrologer, because (even though we belong to 2 different astrological traditions and differ on many issues) he and I are striving towards the same goal. This common goal is to bring astrology back from the psychological mess of so-called modern astrology, and back to a more concrete level, where astrology can be proven or disproven, and where astrology deals with people's everyday life and problems instead of their soul problems.

The Science that Validates Astrology

Skeptics often complain that there is no known explanation to why astrology should work. Such an explanation is offered by Alec Cope in his intriguing article The Science that Validates Astrology. In short, the Sun, the Moon and the planets emit (measurable) sound - and it has been proven that sound can affect us on a whole new level we never understood before.
