What I'm Reading

With Saturn just in Scorpio, dark themes are to the fore so we may as well embrace them. Here is some recommended reading:

Auntie Moon unwraps the Saturn themes in Lars von Trier's Melancholia:
"If you watched the movie Melancholia by Lars von Trier and made it through the excruciating wedding scene that makes up the first half of the film, you saw a masterful representation of what transiting Saturn’s approaching conjunction to a natal planet feels like..."
Fixed star Algol, Taurus: The Sexual, Emotional, & Psychological Drives of Heterosexual Men with Algol
Abella "Jucy" Arthur explores the psychology of men with fixed star Algol strong in their charts:
"The object of the Algol male’s desire has intense sexual power over him that he fears yet is tremendously excited about. But he also feels he may be inadequate — can he live up to her and her desires? If he senses the woman might emasculate or leave him, he may begin to automatically and unconsciously behave in ways that are considered mean, destructive, evil, and ruthless...."
I'm only halfway through Neal's groundbreaking new book about Orcus, but would very much recommend it. If you don't want to take my word for it, here's what renowned astrologer Steven Forrest has to say:
"Jeremy Neal's masterwork about Orcus is a major contribution to the advancement of astrology. Facing the real significance of these newly-discovered trans-Neptunian bodies is not work for the faint-hearted. This is a courageous book that carries the reader into the heart of darkness. Fortunately, it also carries us out again! Neal faces painful subjects unflinchingly, and yet never loses sight of the higher ground. I enthusiastically welcome his voice to the conversation."
