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.

"Horary Examples" is a collection of detailed, step-by-step explanations of horary judgments on a wide range of subjects.

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.
