This is the last issue of the Transit newsletter. Much of its excellent content, news articles and Astrologersí Diary will be accessible through the website. We hope this will serve to enhance the way our news items are delivered. Val Dobson, who has done an excellent job editing Transit over the past six years, will be looking after the online Astrologersí Diary. We would like to extend our gratitude to Val for all her brilliant work on the publication. We would also like to thank all the contributors, particularly our regular columnists Jenni Harte and David Fisher, who have given their much enjoyed and highly acclaimed contributions to Transit voluntarily. We look forward to seeing more of their work online in the future.
