1988: Larry Flynt Wins Supreme Court Decision

Larry Flynt Blue Stamp Astrology Horoscopes Nick Dagan BestForty-seven year-old pornography publisher Larry Flynt wins a Supreme Court case against TV Christian evangelist Jerry Falwell, in a decision that protects satire in the First Amendment. Falwell filed a lawsuit against Flynt in 1983, after Flynt’s magazine Hustler published a fake liquor advertisement that “quotes” Falwell admitting to having sex with his mother in an outhouse.

Transiting Uranus, Saturn, and Mars are conjunct in Capricorn, resonating with Flynt’s natal Uranus and Saturn in Gemini, indicating an unexpected verdict against the status quo. The triple conjunction is square natal Neptune in Libra, representing popular culture, signifying the decision’s lasting impact on American law and the arts.

“URANU.S.A.”

My new (and first) book, URANU.S.A. is now available in ebook format.

URANU.S.A. covers the three periods in American history that coincide with the seven-year passage of the planet Uranus through tropical Gemini, which occurs once every eighty-four years. These periods happen to include the American Revolution, the American Civil War, and U.S. participation in World War II.

The book examines the story and astrology behind crucial events and the lives of central figures from these three periods, including Thomas Paine, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and others.

From the introduction:

“Uranus was found by William and Caroline Herschel, using a telescope in Bath, England, on the night of March 13, 1781 – 220 days before the British surrender at Yorktown, and 352 days before British parliament voted to end the war against the American colonies.

“The new country that emerged from revolution became what is today the oldest democratic republic in the world, a concept of government then unknown in European societies since Ancient Rome.

“The new planet was the first new orbiting body ever found in our solar system. Until the discovery of Uranus, Saturn had always marked the outermost known wandering perimeter of our universe.”

Not to be immodest, but it has to be among the top three finest non-fiction graphic novels on American history ever written by a Canadian astrologer, if I do say so myself. A fun read for astrology enthusiasts and haters alike. Dig in.

West Coast Tour, March-May 2013

TourBanner

I will be visiting thirteen west coast cities this March-April to promote my new graphic novel, URANU.S.A: Astrology Looks at the First Planet and Nation of the New World.

I have a storytelling/slideshow that I will be doing at various types of venues. In most cities, I will be presenting What’s Up, Uranus? Follow the Yellow Brick Tropical Zodiac, a study of Uranus transits through the twelve signs of the tropical zodiac.

In select cities, I will also be presenting The Repentagram: Stories of the Venus Synodic Cycle, which is based on material I will be publishing in another graphic novel down the road.

Whether you are passionately interested in astrology, or want to see it forever eradicated from public discourse, you don’t want to miss this!
