Astrologer Joyce Levin is fond of quoting financier J.P. Morgan, who has often been attributed as saying, "Millionaires don't consult astrologers, billionaires do." Levin, a Cambridge-based modern stargazer, doesn't promise to make you rich, but she does tell the story of a couple who asked for some fortuitous gambling dates and then won thousands of dollars at the slot machines.She says her clients come from all walks of life, from high-octane venture capitalists, renowned physicians, and attorneys takinglawsuits to trials, to expectant mothers, lovesick suitors, and pet owners.As a practitioner in the "science and art of astrology," Levin says she combines "planetary influences with a keen intuitive sense," helping to heal relationships, encourage career changes, and even understand a child's behavior.

housing slump, and unemployment trends.

She admits these
happenings were forecast by pundits and pollsters as well, but says her
insight came from astrological readings. And, she also offers up a
reading from the stars for 2009, which she also acknowledges isn't
revolutionary but insists is tied to Mercury retrograde cycles and
"There is no quick fix for
the economy, but the cycles right now are more like the 1930s than they
have ever been. In the next 15 years, we will see a taxpayer

As often happens, ideas on the subject fall into one camp or the other. But maybe most sense lies in the middle ground. If we were to adopt this position, then we"d have to accept that a "force" DOES have an effect upon our lives, but rather than being some omnipotent supernatural influence, it could be grounded in things we have a fair idea about. W...The Four Elements of Tarot
