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 (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.

The Noel Diary (2022) This TV movie is presently on Netflix (it premiered yesterday). As you may know, I’m a little bit jaded with the Hallmark Christmas shows, so this one is a bit of a pleasant surprise. The themes … Continue reading

Tiffany: the Best Thing Out of Their Union

Marla Maples (October 27, 1963) It’s a strange thing to experience: a complete blank of history in the middle of the time I was living in the United Kingdom. So, to be clear, I knew nothing about this woman, Donald … Continue reading

What Makes Our Budgie So Feisty?

Deja (September 18, 2022) “Strange,” I can hear people saying, “he thinks astrology applies to birds, too.” Well, yes, I do. Deja ‘hatched’ on September 18th, nine days before Chants, but she acts so much older than him, scolding him … Continue reading

It’s a Hard Taskmaster, But Necessary for Our Growth

Saturn in the Birth Chart I was reminded by a YouTube video by Ellie Adams, yesterday, that mental health and other healings need a prompt from one’s birth chart. In the early 1990’s, I used to ask my clients for … Continue reading

Borgia: The Byword of Libertinism and Nepotism

Pope Alexander VI (1431 – August 18, 1503) Now, ordinarily, I wouldn’t bother with Middle Ages popes, but this one kind of stands out from the rest. Obviously, his birth date and time are unknown, so I have only a … Continue reading

When Windsor Castle was Almost Completely Destroyed

Windsor Castle Fire (November 20, 1992) It’s hard to believe this happened 30 years ago. It proved to be a turning point in Elizabeth II’s UK tax strategy. The government paid for the restoration, and the Queen started paying taxes. … Continue reading

Aleister Crowley (October 12, 1875 – December 1, 1947) Up until now, I have avoided this individual, like the plague. It’s not hard to work out why: he personified ‘evil’. But, as always, when you actually look at the person, … Continue reading
