KIRKUS REVIEW

The dean of American astrology"" writes like a dean, i.e.: ""Talleyrand once said that politics was the art of the possible; but so is civilization. What is possible today?. . . What time is it for mankind according to the clock of planetary destiny?"" On like that for three chapters of pre-ambling (placing America in regard to Europe, Western civilization and the Cosmos) in which we learn that 50 signers of the Declaration of Independence were freemasons; the Piscean Age is identified with the ""almost dialectical evolution of Christendom""; and U.S. Destiny is revealed -- we're to be the seedbed of the Aquarian age. The many charts that follow -- several for the nation, a Sagittarius, as well as for Nixon and the century -- are detailed and thorough, even to Sabian symbology as revealed by medium Elsie Wheeler in 1925, and with much to say about Watergate. It's all very complex and hard to grasp, but the time, it ultimately turns out, is about as late as you thought -- and the onus for the future, the dean says, is still on us. Great.
