I will never meet Robert P. Blaschke because he passed away on 18 January 2011. But I’m reading a book of his and I know that he is going to be one of the most important influences in my life as an astrologer.
I plan on getting all his books. I have only one right now: Astrology, A Language of Life, Volume III, A Handbook for the Self-Employed Astrologer. How I got this book is interesting. I met Mitch during my third Jupiter Return. Since Sagittarius rules my MC, and Pisces my ASC, Jupiter is very important in my chart. So, I met Mitch and we struck a deal and because of it, I’ve been getting the most amazing astrology books. Books it would have taken me years to collect (Pisces rising, and Neptune square charts like mine are more indicative of dreamers than of doers).
The June/July 2011 issue of The Mountain Astrologer has an interview of Robert’s, and if you read only that, you’ll still have learned a lot of astrology. And you’ll know that you’re in the presence of a very rare mind, a very rare person. If you don’t have access to TMA, then just go to his website, there are links to his online articles and blogs he’s done for TMA: http://www.earthwalkastrology.com/ (more…)
