Nicholas Campion, Kepler College board member and Senior Lecturer at the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, has an interesting commentary on the Huffington Post.
"It's a shocking fact that there has never been a human culture which has not related its myths, institutions and identity to the stars. This is as true of the modern West as it was of our stone-age ancestors, and is as relevant to the last, surviving, indigenous inhabitants of Amazonia, as it is of today's American astronomers. After all, no scientist spends cold nights scanning the sky in search of new stars, or long hours decoding data from deep space, if the exercise is completely meaningless."

How do you determine which planet is stronger when looking at aspects? How do you quickly find the strongest planets in the chart? Or which planets may pose more challenges even if they aren't aspected or mainly have trines? Classical astrologers used essential dignities and debilities.These were their building blocks for interpretation.
An article in the Washington post notes that there is a rare conjunction of Venus and the Sun coming this May and June:
It’s a setup of cosmic proportions. May starts with super bright Venus extraordinarily high in the western sky, but the planet falls out of view by month’s end, leaving us earthlings positioned for one of nature’s rarest of events: A transit of Venus across the sun on June 5 and 6.
An Indian newspaper remarked on a distubring trend ...
It is not rare that private nursing homes are accused of making extra money by conducting Caesarian Section (CS) operations even in cases normal deliveries were possible.
But an unlikely section of people are now helping gynaecologists share the blame, though in a limited way.
Astrologers are suggesting ‘time slots’ for delivery that can be achieved only through CS.
