News from Tem & a few links

A note from TMA‘s publisher:

Hi, everyone. Before we get to the rest of this week’s blog, I have some news.

Starting with the April/May issue, we are adding exclusive online bonus content that we don’t have room for in the printed magazine, available to all digital-only subscribers and all print subscribers who have registered for their free access to TMA’s Digital Edition.

This bonus content will be posted online, along with the new April/May issue, by Tuesday evening (Pacific Time), February 28. It includes TMA’s first-ever audio interview, a conversation I conducted a few days ago with astrologer Gary Christen, on topics including Uranian Astrology, the Transneptunian planets, the upcoming Uranus–Pluto squares, the economy and world events in 2012, potential earthquake configurations, and the future of astrology. By the way, in the printed April/May issue, there are two articles on the astrology of earthquakes, including a look at time windows in 2012 when the risk of a large quake in the U.S. is increased. The full April/May Table of Contents can be found here.

So, if you enjoy reading The Mountain Astrologer, or our blog, this is a great time to subscribe. It supports quality in astrological writing and editing, and it helps pay for this blog. If you’d like to subscribe to TMA as digital-only, you can get the current Feb/March issue and 6 more for only $33 in any country — and we now accept PayPal. We would also love to hear from you on what you’d like to see more of in TMA — send those comments to us at

Thanks for your time and attention!

Thanks, Tem for filling in with the blog. I’m going to add just a few links (and take some time off today for some birthday cupcakes..)

May everyone’s birthday always be happy,

Best to all,

Kathy Biehl’s Forecast for the Week is always helpful (and cheerful).

Another friend, Kathy Rose, has a video for the aspects for March.

Thanks to Gary Caton for reminding me of The Astronomy Picture of the Day.

In case you missed this from financial heavyweight, Forbes magazine, Can Planets Affect Your Portfolio?

And, keeping it all in perspective, thanks to Ray Grasse for this beauty to behold, images from Hubble in 3D set to Arvo Part’s “Tabula Rasa – Silentium”.


  1. Happy Birthday, Mary, and thanks for all the great work you do for TMA!

    • Thank you, Tem…

      (did I mention some nice wine along with the cupcakes? I am a loyal Pisces and must remain true to my Dionysian roots)

  2. Update: We just posted the April/May issue of TMA digitally for those subscribers who are registered for the Digital Edition. (The physical magazines are printing now and are due to go into the mail on March 2.)

  3. I shall certainly look forward to the articles on earthquake astrology. I don’t know what case studies you will use, but have you seen the chart for the 1906 San Francisco earthquake? An exact Uranus-Neptune opposition transited the MC-IC axis only about a minute before the earthquake itself. It is difficult to escape the conclusion that this transit must have triggered the event – which registered 8.3 on the Richter scale and resulted in a whopping 22-foot linear displacement along the San Andreas fault!
