The Sun's Joy

"The Sun’s Joy" is my collection of writings on traditional methods of astrology.  It’s mostly short pieces, written in a straightforward style that I hope is easy to read and understand. Since starting the blog in 2009 I've written over 150 posts on a wide range of subjects. The blog title refers to my natal Sun in the 9th house, the house of its joy (a type of dignity in astrology).

My Charts in "Horary Examples"

"Horary Examples" is a collection of detailed, step-by-step explanations of horary judgments on a wide range of subjects.  Editor Dave Menconi came up with the idea and brought the project to fruition in the fall of 2016. I am one of the contributing authors, along with my teacher, John Frawley, and four of my colleagues. I was honored to write the Introduction and the Glossary, as well.
