EXAMPLES

The Polar Horoscope by Mike Wackford Corr Vol 19(2) 2000/2001 pp54-61

Abstract This paper explains the true locations of the main horoscopic angles for charts cast in respect of events that occur within the Arctic and Antarctic Circles. In view of continuing controversy, it includes descriptions of apparent motions both of the ecliptic and the Sun, observed from within the northern Polar region. The study of Circumpolar horoscopy, though largely ignored, demonstrates perhaps more than any other how far practitioners have become removed from the real sky. It has been the subject of much misguided debate, with erroneous opinion gaining undue credibility. This is amply demonstrated by the fact that most current astrological software yields either incorrect circumpolar charts, or none at all. The paper is the first of a series and conclusions outlined are further developed in subsequent articles.

In the shadow of the Moon: people's experience of viewing eclipses by Cherry Gilchrist Corr. Vol. 24(2) 2006/2007 pp. 57-71

Abstract Anecdotal and historical evidence suggests that solar eclipses have a powerful effect on those who experience them. This qualitative study, conducted by email, used emailed questionnaires and semi-structured personal interviews in order to record first-hand testimony from eclipse-watchers. The results support the proposition that the direct observation of a solar eclipse tends to be an emotionally profound experience
