I was referring to Deb Houlding and Chris Brennan. I am a graduate of the STA class and have Chris’s class and book. I have listened to the Astrology Podcast for years. I think they both have done incredible work.

I find you and Elizabeth funny, informative and knowledgeable. I think it was Elizabeth that predicted seismic activity two days before the Turkey earthquake. That was excellent astrology!

Thanks for clarifying, Patricia. I also have learned so much from each of them, and I view my collective learning from them as foundational; neither cancels out the other; it only enhances.

Despite the potential for collateral damage, I am happy to have the debate show us our strenghts of scholarship in the field. It is staggering to me how serious and thoughtful people are about their various niches. I come from an academic medicine editorial background and can say that this equals, and in some cases surpasses, the medical establishment's evermore predictable approach to interrogation, which is largely funded by big pharma. This is all "funded" by passion.

PS: When EG reads that you think we're funny, I predict you will make not just her day, but her week! πŸ˜ƒ

Whitney's prediction was 100% accurate!! There is no higher compliment a Moon in Gemini can receive than to be called informative AND entertaining!! Thank you, Patricia, for making my day -- and for finding us through STA!!

Thank you for this episode. I have to admit that the disagreement about house systems bothered me quite a bit. I respect both astrologers and their work on both sides of the argument. I hope that in the future they will just let the this go and understand that we use whatever house system resonates with us.

Hi, Patricia. Thank you for listening and for taking the time to comment. Are you referring to the disagreement btw Chris Brennan and Deb Houlding, or Elisabeth and I? EG and I don't disagree so much as it is that we don't do things the same way. I just want to be sure folks don't perceive EG and I have our knives out. πŸ™ƒ

EG is a technically impeccable astrologer who uses Quadrant houses for all her charts. I use them for horary, but WSH for natal.

Glad to have you as a patron. Thank you!!😍

one disagreement on MSNBC... their more liberal perspective is Vitally needed to counter Fox Propaganda not-news, & the huge amount of right wing media that dominates... I'm grateful for their intelligent reporting & perspective... Would be great if the news were factual & neutral... this Cancerian Nation seems to want an emotional component... NPR has failed with corporate sponsors feeding bias
