There and knaves . . . and then there are knaves.

In Aspen Colorado, “former astrologer” Thomas Gregory Brown was sentenced to 18 months probation for “for harassing two girls, concluding a case that referenced everything from a movie cannibal to lie detectors . . . Brown, who was originally charged with two felony counts of sexual assault on a child, pleaded guilty in April to two misdemeanor harassment charges as part of a plea agreement.

According to the British-born Brown’s defense attorney, the resemblance between the astrologer and the star Anthony Hopkins, the star of Silence of the Lambs, is “uncanny.” Would love to know Brown’s birth data. Hopkin’s is December 31, 1937, time unknown. Read More here.

Speaking of things British, here is a 2004 astrological analysis of the UK’s National Health Service.

The chart is criss-crossed by opposition aspects, and each end of these oppositions is at right-angles to other oppositions. There is a predominance of tense aspects, showing on one level that this organisation is biased towards action and doing, but on another level that there is a great deal of conflict within it.

There is much to commend in this chart, and it’s a very complex chart overall; it’s important to keep in mind though that it needs to be such, because it represents a service that caters to more than 60 million residents plus visitors to the UK – an amazingly complex operation.

In a later post, the author rails against politicians for “the sinister, treacherous, and brutal Pluto side into the equation. It is playing the Plutonic role of the murderous villain, not the life-bringer.”

Pluto the life-bringer?!?!
