November 2014

This month's editor is Trudie Charles

Given the imminent entry of Saturn into Sagittarius, the fact that Jupiter is presently applying to square up to Saturn combined with my Sagittarian Sun, it felt relevant to chose them as the focus of this edition. Nicholas de Vore in his Encyclopaedia of Astrology defines Saturn and Jupiter as "Chronocrators, Markers of Time", whose cycles and contacts were of historic and prophetic importance to ancient civilisations. Their Grand Climactic conjunction in Sagittarius every 800 to 960 years marked supreme epochs in history of mankind. For us I have selected some articles from the Association's archives, which demonstrate their effect in the charts of today explored from a variety of astrological perspectives and disciplines. Both book and periodical library archives provide much more for those of you who want to explore further.
