Monkey Man
by Armand Diaz
The potential for tension between traditional and modern thought is visible in the U.S. chart, and an analysis of the chart of Charles Darwin (an Aquarian born the same day as Abraham Lincoln) betrays him as an unlikely radical. This author believes that fundamentalists who rail against evolution are really radicals as well.

The Dawn of a New Universe
by Richard Tarnas
