Santa Claus is being good to me this year. I am getting a gift that I have wanted for a very long time – my fourth book, The Night Speaks, which has been unavailable for many years, is coming out again in a revised, updated edition. I am delighted to see it in print again.
Much of my writing over the years has been aimed at people who wanted to learn astrology. The Night Speaks serves that community, but even more, it is a book about why to do astrology – and, perhaps at an even deeper level, why to believe in it. It is, in other words, a book for anyone with an open mind and a mild interest in astrological possibilities. I think it also would make a fine, if somewhat subversive, gift for anyone who loves an astrologer, but who has not the foggiest idea what he or she thinks or does.
My special hope is that this revised edition finds its way into the hands of younger astrologers of all traditions. I first wrote it while in mid-life. Now that I am older, The Night Speaks feels like a way of passing on to those who will come after me some of the fire-in-the-belly that has kept me engaged in our mysterious, sacred craft since I was a child.
To give you a taste of the pages, we offer the introduction to the 2016 edition.
