One week ago, I gave in – and joined Facebook.
Blame my friend and collaborator, psychologist and independent thinker Emily Cutts, currently co-writing “MoreBitsFallOff.com’ with me. It’s all her fault: she belongs to the Facebook generation! But I finally realised that insisting on building up a healthy following for my four-section magazine “Writing from the Twelfth House” as I had done, on word of mouth alone, was just perverse. So Emily pushed me gently – and I jumped in.
At present, my tenth house Mars conjunct Uranus is being squared by the current Jupiter/Uranus conjunction. Can this be having something to do with it? I wonder ingenuously.
I went from being Friendless to having fifty-nine Facebook Friends – all in less than a week. One of the mutual Friends who came up had a fetching moon and stars image instead of a mugshot. I liked it, inviting its owner Kenneth Irving to become a Friend. He accepted – and sent me a message saying he had written a review of “Jupiter Meets Uranus”, my 2009 study of Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions, at the end of last year. I am really pleased with this entirely unexpected review, another to add to the collection of positive responses to my book. Thanks, Kenneth!
So – the left field of Jupiter/Uranus dynamism and unpredictability delivers yet again, as in this very small personal example. After many years as a student, practitioner and teacher of astrology – these days mostly as a writer – I continue to love hearing the great music of the spheres, being played throughout space and time, on the large mundane scale and the tiny personal scale by the planets in their cycles.
Here is the review.
“….Jupiter Meets Uranus is a thoughtful, well-researched book that does a good job of answering the question of
what the combination of Jupiter and Uranus means,and it does it in depth and in detail. Highly recommended….”

Well thats just wonderful Anne, esp. as Dawn at InnerWheel has just done likewise! The Astrologers have landed !!! Looking forward to visiting…..
thanks for more of your positive and steadfast support! Yes – I have been passing the nagging on, and Dawn caved in a few days ago and joined Facebook. She is such a brilliant teacher – hopefully now even more folk will find this out.
Brilliant – so glad the pestering worked. I’m looking forward to following your wise words on Facebook
I’m away to bed just before my head falls off from the effort of acquiring yet more Facebook Fiends(sorry, didn’t I mean Friends??!!)
Many thanks and keep on pestering. It’s one of the more effective ways of keeping the Boomer braincell from atrophying….
It’s a brave new world as everyone bares their soul on the internet! 🙂 Best of luck with that regardless.
lovely to hear from you again!
