I have had a few emails about the astrology post. Some people preferred to comment to me personally rather than on the comment section.
Okay, I do believe there is a lot of merit in astrology. It is an ancient science and nothing would have lasted for centuries if it was nonsense. I studied the sun signs fully to find out about the personalities to write AstroPups (see first post). Jacqueline Chapple helped enormously as her knowledge of the subject is extensive, but I had to know the subject inside of myself in order to write in my own style and through my own knowledge. Actually, astrology has become a part of my knowing people.
While it is true that I used Zodiac signs as a guide to personalities in my book, and my goal was to help people to learn about the dog breed they were adopting into their families, I do think it is an interesting and even absorbing field of study. I have also studied religion, psychology, sociology, and philosophy. I have learned a lot from all of them.
As a teacher for twelve years, I applied what I had learned to reach a student in need of help. Certainly, as an author I needed all of my insights to write well.
I understand sun signs. I wrote about them as I do all things, in depth. I have been told I am “spot on”. It is because I understand the Zodiac signs that this is true.
During my research, I discovered something interesting. Some business people, CEO’s of companies, when deciding on a pitch, actually check on the birthdays of the lead players. If the person who holds the key to acceptance is a Capricorn, for instance, a lot of back up proof would be vital to the pitch. If the person is an Aries, then that person would be more willing to take a chance on what appears to be a good deal.
I also discovered that kings and queens, politicians, classic writers, doctors, and psychologists were among the millions who believed in and studied astrology all over the world.
There is magic in a child’s smile, in a dog’s sigh as it nestles into your lap, in the beauty of a sunrise over the mountains, and the sunset over the water. Perhaps there is magic in the stars.
