Maya del Mar reviewed Alex Miller’s original, self-published edition of The Black Hole Book way back in Daykeeper Journal’s August 2002 issue. We’re reprinting her review here to celebrate release of this new, expanded and revised 2014 edition, available in paperback and for Kindle at Amazon.
Readers have asked me about the source of Black Hole information, and although I have had the precious little book since 1995, I had lost touch with Alex. Expert researcher Susan tracked him down.
This is an extraordinary little book which combines science, mythology, psychology, history, current events, and astrology in a holistic manner to describe energy flow, which is what astrology is about. In reviewing it, I have the urge to quote the whole thing because it’s so interesting and enriching.
We’ve just seen some samples of Black Hole action this month, July, with the stock market crash. This was an excellent example, because there was nothing else apparent in the heavens to indicate such a massive reality shift. There were, however, an extraordinary number of Black Holes on sensitive points. The crash is, in fact, a literal black hole for many many people.
Black holes, says Alex, represent the principle of transubstantiation, which is an alchemical change of form into material reality. They depict areas of susceptibility to dramatic, intense, sometimes violent and usually unsuspected shifts in the status quo reality. They also show points of energy influx, or energy drain.
Thanks to Alex’s book, I have been able to work with Black Holes. I find all that he says to be true. For instance, the Pluto-Saturn conjunction of 1982, which set us on our current 38-year cycle of transformation of business and government, occurred at 28 Libra.
This Pluto-Saturn conjunction, which we will live with until 2020, conjoined Black Hole Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanic fire. She personifies fiery, passionate destruction. At that time, November 1982, Pres. Reagan gave his Star Wars speech, and Ariel Sharon became “The Butcher of Shatila” as he presided over a cruel massacre of innocents in a Palestinian refugee camp.
We can see in retrospect that those events helped set the tone for the entire cycle.
That cycle received a big shot in the arm on election night in November 2000 when an unstable Mercury actually stood still on Black Hole Pele. And then GW Bush, with a chart loaded with Black Holes, became Destiny’s child.
Alex reminds us, too, that Sun connected with Pele at the fiery Waco debacle, as well as at the explosion of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
Alex lists 24 Black Holes and their degrees. Most charts have two or three close conjunctions to Black Holes. George Bush has at least 12 Black Holes in close conjunctions! No wonder he has been draining the country’s energy as though it was running out of a bath tub!
Alex promises that he will send us an article about George and Black Holes. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, Alex sent us his article about Princess Diana and Black Holes. The five-year anniversary of her death is coming up soon. Thank you for sharing, Alex. And many many thanks for publishing this fascinating, magical little book.
[Ed. Note: Alex did indeed send those articles on G.W. Bush. You can find them here—all three of them fascinating!]
