Heads Up! I would recommend you move to the new BPI web site now -- it's ready to use. No new material will be added to this old site in the future. Please stay abreast of our Moving and Renovation Plans during this transition period.

The art/science of astrology can be viewed in many ways -- here are my favorites.

It's a bit like forecasting the weather, letting you know what kind of energy you'll meet when you get out of bed in the morning. It's like some kind of cosmic ecology, where the ecosystem is extended to include the entire solar system and some of the animals are the size of planets. It's a language of energy, cycles, and growth. Mainly, though, I think of Astrology as the relationship between the Geometry of the Heavens and Life here on Earth.

Here's my take on what's happening in our ecosystem lately.
