CBC Radio's "Tapestry" Host Mary Hynes Interviews Dr. Richard Tarnas - Author Of The Book, "Cosmos And Psyche: Intimations Of A New World"
March 19, 2005
Canadian Broadcasting Company's Mary Hynes Interviews scholar Dr Richard Tarnas on CBC Radio's Tapestry.
Ms Hynes' introduction: "Every now and then a book about astrology lands on Tapestry's doorstep. As soon as one comes in, it goes out. Right into the give-away pile. Astrology might be good for a laugh but it's not something you're going to hear about on CBC Radio!
So, here's the problem. One day, a book lands on our doorstep. It's about astrology, but it's written by a highly respected scholar - whose last book was praised by the likes of Joseph Campbell and Huston Smith. His name is Richard Tarnas and the book is called "Cosmos And Psyche" . There's only one option - interview him! You'll hear the results on this week's Tapestry."
Listen to the once skeptical Ms. Hynes' extremely interesting interview with Dr Tarnas, HERE. Will he change your mind, too?
You can buy the Kindle book from Amazon.com, below.
Harvard-educated scholar Dr. Richard Tarnas, author of the book you see here convinced skeptical CBC radio host that the planets may, in fact, have a major bearing on what goes on down here. Will he convince you, too? Listen to the interview, above, and then learn more in this Kindle book!

Planets in Transit by Rob Hand
What does the future hold for you? Rob Hand's book, Planets in Transit, offers illuminating indepth descriptions of each and every transit to your natal planets with suggestions on how to deal with them. A must-have for anyone interested in astrology. This was one of the first books on the subject that I purchased after having my chart cast. It shook my world to its core with its accuracy; so much so that I became frightened and threw it in the trash. A few months later, I purchased another copy which became so dogearred over the years that I had to purchase a replacement. Click on the Astrodienst link in my intro paragraph above to construct a FREE natal chart (you enter place, date and time of birth, Astrodienst does the rest), print it out, then use this book to find out what it all means! You'll also need an Ephemeris (google "ephemeris" and the year to find a free one online) to see the daily positions of the transiting planets...or return to Astrodienst where you can also find the planetary positions for any date. I'm guessing you will be as fascinated as I was...and continue to be.
