astrological chart

My birth chart (1960). Most notable is the prominent position of the moon. It is the ruler of the horoscope in that it controls a full halfcircle. Saturn and Mars are in conjunction with the ascendant. The moon can hopefully mould this ominous aspect into something fruitful. (Whether astrological charts should be taken seriously is another question.)

Mats WintherMy essays tackle difficult and controversial issues and try to avoid a rehash of old stuff. This will hopefully make them interesting to advanced readers (who are sure to find a few arguments that are slightly shaky). The enthusiasm for psychological and religious subjects took root early, leading to private studies. I write to improve my own understanding. It's a form of self-education to formulate one's thoughts in a coherent article. Education: physics, computer science & comparative religion (Stockholm University). I have researched and programmed many historical boardgames. I live in Stockholm, Sweden. My preferred spare time recreation is woodland walks (Dec 2008).
