Ellen Zucker, "The Stormy Skies of 2017: Navigating through Uncharted Waters"
With an endless stream of precedent breaking headlines, it is clear that 2017 brings us into uncharted waters. This is disorienting and upsetting to many; especially to those whose charts are touched directly by current transits.
astrological patterns unfolding in 2017 are pivotal in themselves, but
they also play a significant role in the unfolding of larger cycles
shaping our world for many years to come. Hold on to your hats. These
are exciting times with lots of opportunity if you’re willing to seize
Come, let us explore.

Robert Hand, "Manzils or Arabic Lunar Mansions"
Most astrologers with any knowledge of Hindu astrology (Jyotish) are aware
that it uses a division of the zodiac into 27 nakshatras, often referred to
as Lunar Manions. Fewer astrologers are aware that Arabic and Medieval Latin
astrology also have such a system except that it is based on the division of
the zodiac into 28 divisions. These are called Manzils. They were
extensively used in weather forecasting and also in electional astrology.
This lecture will explore their use and will also present evidence that for
the most part these were used in a sidereal zodiac and that the ayanamsha
used in this system was not the Hindu system of Lahiri but was the
Babylonian zodiac postulated by Cyril Fagan and Garth Allen.
Robert Hand, PhD has been a student of astrology since 1960 and a full-time professional astrologer since 1972.
