The Wiki and Why
This wiki is the culmination of a 20 year dream. Over twenty years I have tried to create a site where one could get basic information about astrology without paying a premium of some kind. And it’s needed. While it’s nice, fellow astrologers, to start talking shop, and some have succumbed to little more than newspaper stuff,, a newbie is left wondering, “what are they talking about?”. Here is a place where one can find the missing link and get a clue on all of the jargon.
The internet is littered with my attempts. Aquariusmoon.info, some stuff on Yahoo, Geocities, and an attempt on domania.net. Moving from server to server, first hand-coding pages, then building from html editors. If you find them, please be kind.
Introducing the Repository: The Repository is the wiki part of this site. It’s a place where I can have whole articles and reference material. I also have a few useful downloads as well.a place beyond basic where many of the more technical aspects can be feature. It’s fully searchable by keyword, and soon, by author.
Another feature: America’s Birthchart….
This site is Western Orthodox Astrology. What do I mean? This is the astrology practiced by American, European astrologers, the “What’s Your Sign” stuff- 12 Signs that go around the Zodiac in a year, with the 9 (and counting Planets).
There are other forms of astrology, especially in the East. There are Chinese, Vedic, and even some Native American teachings.
A place for gratitude: Starlight News, Bill Wilson (Rest in Peace), Morgan Williams (also Rest in Peace), American Astrology, Dell Magazine, and so many more who encouraged my new interest .
Back in 1976 or so, I was into the “Late Great Planet Earth” and those Watchtower books that talked about the end of the world being in at the latest, 1982. Time was linear at best, with a definite ending. Astrology cured me of that by showing the cycles and the phases.
When I began to study the stars and the cycles, I no longer feared the future, except maybe the background stuff of nuclear war. Even then, I stopped looking for hoofbeats.
I have four other blogs:
Coffeehouse: Personal and Assorted

As for donations, as seen at the lower part of the page: My hope is to minimize ads here and for the blog to be self-sustaining by paying for hosting fees and personal services. I’m not a big fan of ads, and especially for a site that wants to remain free for all to read, it really would help to donate.
Another part of the freedom is that there is one place for comment-and it’s a Disqus, so no registration is needed for simply comments-and the only place will be on the main page.
