 Early in his astrological career, John Townley introduced the composite chart technique for analyzing relationships in his book “The Composite Chart”, and twenty years later wrote the definitive work on the subject, “Composite Charts: The Astrology Of Relationships.” He has pioneered techniques for astrological cycle analysis and proposed a new, physical basis for astrology. He is also the author of “Planets in Love,” “Dynamic Astrology,” and “Lunar Returns,” has been the president of the Astrologers’ Guild of America, was the editor of The Astrological Review, and is a contributor to professional and popular astrological magazines. His books have been translated into seven languages.

 Townley is also a well-known journalist, elected member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, historian, preservationist, performer, and record producer. He can be regularly found, camera and microphone in hand, covering cultural and technology events ranging from the Consumer Electronics Show to the Toy Fair, from international music festivals to ocean sailing races. When he’s not behind the camera and microphone, he’s in front of them, performing at maritime concerts in the U.S. and across Europe.

    Thanks, JuliaAna! Ramblin’ Jack was (still is, but haven’t seen him in years) a friend I was lucky enough to share the stage with. He actually got me to learn a particular piece from my mentor Rev. Gary Davis so I could teach it to him. He was later, in one of his many simultaneous incarnations, the master rigger on restoral of the tall ship Elissa down in Galveston, which survived the recent hurricane untouched…

      Thanks Adamis, I wish I could reply to you in your native language, but I only took three years of ANCIENT Greek, which doesn’t help! Anyway, I do not have a book about statistical methods, but I do write a lot about basic theory (almost no one does that) and establishing and following fundamental principles that fit with general physical science…see my extensive article selection at http://www.astrococktail.com/articles.html

      I am afraid Google translations of your blog and the many other excellent Greek astrology blogs are not sufficient to truly understand everything, but it’s wonderful to see so much interest over there. Have you had many American or English astrologers come to speak in Greece? I’d love to know…John
