Vedic Astrologer 1, Professional Skeptic Michael Shermer 0

earth-sofa-ganesha-medium_230e083aad15eeed1d7321d4a00002c2Can astrology make real, observable, verifiable observations and predictions about a person, based only on knowledge of the birth chart? Skeptics wouldn’t like to think so… and who can blame them? Believing that the planets have an actual effect on your life sounds a little nutty. Or hey… maybe it’s just another branch of psychology, and talking about your “personality” could be fun… or even useful… even if by accident.

But: real observations?

Oh yes. Read on…

Do yourself a favor: take the ten minutes to watch this, a clip from a show made by professional skeptic Michael Shermer in 1999/2000… who I’ll be talking about in my upcoming March Editorial on Beliefnet… on the skeptic’s own show, Vedic Astrologer Jeffrey Armstrong scores 92% accuracy… and it bears repeating: against the standards and conditions set by the skeptic in question.

.

.

Now please be advised: there was no tricky editing going on here on someone’s part to make it look like Jeffrey Armstrong passed the test…. he actually passed the test. You don’t exactly see Michael Shermer going around talking his head off about it, but I’ve done some research and not only is this video legitimate as presented… Michael Shermer’s biggest complaint about it is that he didn’t have time to rig the results against Armstrong.

Yes, really. My upcoming editorial will have Shermer in his own word on the matter. Betcha can’t wait for that March Editorial to come out… and I can’t wait for you to read it.

The Astrology Of Your Inner Moon Child: Moon In Leo

matthew currie astrology moon in leo(In preparation for my upcoming online course entitled THE MOON AND YOU, I am presenting excerpts about Moon Signs from my book… a brief humorous description, followed by an appropriate Children’s Story. Enjoy!)

***

MOON IN LEO

You are warm and loving and playful, like a big pussycat. Actually, like a lion. They call a group of lions a “pride,” and pride can be a central issue with you. You expect your warm and loving nature to be reflected back at you more than most do, and when those around you fall short (by your standards) you can become a ruthless predator. It was probably someone with Moon in Leo who invented those “My Child is an Honor Student” bumper stickers. You have high standards for yourself, and like to play fair, and you usually manage to live by those standards yourself. And when you personally fall short of those standards, you feel bad… but can justify it loudly all day long.

You are fond of jewellery and luxury. Moon in Leo people enjoy loud dramatic relationships, loud dramatic break-ups, and loud dramatic cars. All this amplified emotion can be exactly what someone else is looking for in a partner, but it can just as easily drive people away. Fortunately, your better qualities usually win out, and you can be magnanimous and forgiving. When things are going well and you are in a good mood, romance with you can be as memorable as the restraining order that leads to the break-up.

THE MOON IN LEO STORY

Belle squealed with delight as she hugged the handsome prince, recently restored to life and transformed back from his beastly form. “Oh, I love you so! And we’ll have the most wonderful wedding. There will be a horse-drawn carriage and a symphony and a three-day feast and we’ll have the moat re-lined and my wedding dress will be encrusted in diamonds and all my cousins and friends from college will be there and there’ll be magicians and jugglers and clowns and –“

The handsome prince broke free from Belle’s embrace. He walked towards the door, stopping only to fish in his pocket and toss a key to Belle. “Here. You might as well take it all now” he said as he walked to the door. “I’m going to go live in the woods. Call me some time.”

“But you don’t have a cell phone!” she shouted after him as the door slammed shut.

Learning Astrology: The Magic Of The 10th House

10th houseIf you have a basic familiarity with the main concepts of astrology, you’ve heard of “The Houses.” You probably also know that the “Midheaven” (or MC, short for “medium coeli,” which is Latin for “top of the sky) is where your Tenth House starts, and that the nature of that Tenth House determines a lot of very important things about you: your career, how you make your mark in life, and your ambitions.

But did you know that your First House also represents:

_ What your friends can’t figure out about you?

– Making money off of travel?

– Joint pains?

That’s part of the magic we’ll be discussing in the Facebook-based courses I’m teaching this month… and once you’ve mastered those basics, you’ll be able to see these things for yourself in both your own birth chart and in the charts of others… and the experience will be easy, fun, and affordable. We’ll be uncovering the richness and depth of astrology, and how it can be applied to pretty much anyone or anything in your life.

Whether you’re a beginner, an intermediate student, or been at it all your life, you’ll get maximum value out of these courses and the learning environment… all based on a Facebook page, so you can drop in, ask questions, and learn whenever and however you like and whenever your schedule permits.

It’s two courses in one… both like a personalized reading, both like a pain-free learning experience, and all available at one low price. CLICK HERE for the details!

Learning Astrology: The Magic Of The 7th House

7th houseIf you have a basic familiarity with the main concepts of astrology, you’ve heard of “The Houses.” You probably also know that the “descendant” (the opposite point from “the Ascendant”) is where your Seventh House starts, and that the nature of that Seventh House determines a lot of very important things about you: like who your partners and closest friends are.

But did you know that your First House also represents:

– Your second child?

– Taking a short side trip while you’re on vacation?

– Making money off of your pets?

That’s part of the magic we’ll be discussing in the Facebook-based courses I’m teaching this month… and once you’ve mastered those basics, you’ll be able to see these things for yourself in both your own birth chart and in the charts of others… and the experience will be easy, fun, and affordable.

Learning Astrology: The Magic Of The 4th House

4th houseIf you have a basic familiarity with the main concepts of astrology, you’ve heard of “The Houses.” You probably also know that the “IC” (short for “imum coeli,” which is Latin for “the bottom of the sky”) is where your Fourth House starts, and that the nature of that House determines a lot of very important things about you: your home life, early parental influences, and where you find your “base of operations.”

But did you know that your Fourth House also represents:

– Home ownership?

– Your digestion?

– Your partner’s career?

That’s part of the magic we’ll be discussing in the Facebook-based courses I’m teaching this month… and once you’ve mastered those basics, you’ll be able to see these things for yourself in both your own birth chart and in the charts of others… and the experience will be easy, fun, and affordable.

But did you know that your First House also represents:

– Your pet’s health?

– Success from working at home?

– Your child’s travel overseas?
