The Best Alternate Reality Movies (part two) – Cypher

The Best Alternate Reality Movies – Part Two Cypher (2002, dir: Vincenzo Natali) 9/10 The Cambridge dictionary offers two illuminating definitions of the word ‘cipher’ (the correct way to spell this word) as a ‘person without power, but used by others for their own purposes.’ The other definition says it’s an encoded ‘system of writing […]

The Propaganda Files (part three): Avoiding Scammers and Fraudsters

The Propaganda Files (part three): Avoiding Scammers and Fraudsters

Here’s another kind of Fake News – the kind put out by scammers and fraudsters. Here is where we willingly open ourselves up to propaganda, manipulation and deception by others. But why would we do this? Well, the short answer is that we have accepted someone else’s authority – we’ve been conned into thinking the […]

Is this the best Astrology book ever? A review of Liz Greene’s ‘Relating’

Is this the best Astrology book ever? A review of Liz Greene’s ‘Relating’

Life is often unfair and unjust – it seems that – at the time of writing – Liz Greene’s Relating, the astrology classic from 1977, is  only available second hand (on Amazon) or at some exorbitant price. This is a downright tragedy for Western civilisation, since Liz Greene’s Relating: An Astrological Guide to Living with […]

Strawberry Fields Forever – Is This The Best Song Ever?

Strawberry Fields Forever – Is This The Best Song Ever?

Is ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ the best ever pop song? I remember once having a free pull-out poster with one of the rock newspapers in about 1976 (either the NME or Sounds) listing the best 100 singles of all time. The usual suspects were all there – ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’, ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, ‘Good […]

Inside Jack Nicholson’s Birth Chart – the Man Behind the Mask

Inside Jack Nicholson’s Birth Chart – the Man Behind the Mask

Let’s look at Jack Nicholson’s birth chart. The first thing to note is that, essentially, he’s a paradox. One wouldn’t normally think so given the image of the Hollywood Hellraiser; the imposing, self-promoting Romeo with the wicked grin, indistinguishable from his Batman Joker. It is but a smokescreen, not that he hasn’t enjoyed being the […]

The Recording of Sgt. Pepper – The Top Ten Secrets

We’re going to look at the Recording of Sgt. Pepper, the  Beatles landmark album. I’ve already analysed both Lennon and McCartney‘s birth charts on this site – now let’s look at the  one of their most enduring creations. Just about every music fan around the world has heard, or read, about the cultural milestone that […]

The Best Alternate Reality Movies (part one) – Twelve Monkeys

The Best Alternate Reality Movies (part one) – Twelve Monkeys

All so-called Alternate Reality Movies should have that puzzling scene that makes you ask:  ‘is this happening for real now, or is it in his/her head?’ There’s a whole raft of movies whose protagonists exist in some other dimension than this one, and one of the most successful (and complex) is Christopher Nolan’s psychological thriller […]

Eckhart Tolle’s The Power Of Now – A Review, by James Lynn Page

Eckhart Tolle’s The Power Of Now – A Review, by James Lynn Page

I have been reading Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now recently, originally championed by the very popular Oprah Winfrey. (My acquaintance with the book is also a little belated, since it was first published in 1997, by  Namaste Publishing, Vancouver, Canada). I’ve even been watching the author on YouTube, and I’m pleased to say he […]

Mick Jagger’s Horoscope: Love, Fame and the Pursuit of Eternal Youth

Mick Jagger’s Horoscope: Love, Fame and the Pursuit of Eternal Youth

Let’s take an in-depth look at Mick Jagger’s Horoscope – what makes him really tick? In Philip Norman’s excellent Jagger biography, the author cites decades of adulation as a rock god to account for what he called Eternal Teenager syndrome, which entails inhabiting a parallel universe where human mortality itself can be be bypassed. ‘The […]

Keith Richards’ Horoscope – What is He Really Like?

Keith Richards’ Horoscope –  What is He Really Like?

What is Keith Richards’ Horoscope like? Is the so-called Human Riff, the Most Elegantly Wasted Human Being Ever, a Rebel or a Reactionary? The typical Rebel is described as ‘bohemian’, ‘insubordinate’, ‘lawless’, ‘unorthodox’, ‘unruly’, and he’s been all of these at various times. But what about the opposite, Reactionary? This is a conservative, a diehard, […]
