About cdsmiller17

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to cdsmiller17@gmail.com. (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.

When Real Life and the Movies Intersect:

The House had Its Own Spirit of Adventure

Up (2009) This children’s film showed up on TV last weekend. If memory serves me, the one we saw in the cinema was in 3D. I had totally forgotten how emotive it was, especially when retelling Carl and Ellie’s story. … Continue reading

Maybe This is Exactly What Everyone Wants…

The World Going to Hell in a Handcart You know what I’m going to write next, don’t you? Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. Putin and Russia want a neutral buffer zone around their borders. … Continue reading

The Last Two Years have Been a Rough Ride

In the Secret War, the Twenty Committee’s Greatest Feat:

Operation Mincemeat (2021) I’ve written about this supreme act of jiggery-pokery before, here. The fact that this story needed retelling in the 21st century should be a warning to us all. And if you wonder why the group is called … Continue reading
