Is it just me or has anyone else noticed what the letter S is doing to the words. It was the word TONE as in musical tones that sent me spiralling in the first place...

Take a look at what the hiSSing S (for Satan?) is creating when inserted in front of a word - any word.

TONES - STONES

ELF - SELF, ELFISH - SELFISH

TOP - STOP

TALK - STALK, TALKER - STALKER

WORD - SWORD

OLD - SOLD

MASH - SMASH

INK - (to) SINK

LAUGHTER - SLAUGHTER

Miracle - I know there is a section in Star Signs about "s" which I will try to find for you.

imajre - thanks for looking. We must have different versions as in mine it is on p.447.

Miracle - I know I can't explain the sneaky serpent as well as Linda, but she does discuss the "good" Serpent v. the "sneaky" Serpent - the "good" Serpent appearing in words like wiSdom and the "sneaky" Serpent appearing in words like sELF to try and throw us off...but that's where the druids come in.

Thanks Hopeful - I'll have to look it up... it's been a few months now that I have not been reading the Star Signs! Shame on me! As regards the pages numbers, you probably have the hardcover whilst Imajre is consulting the paperback!

Dear Hopeful,

That is an interesting point you have made. I have often quoted from my version but this has never been picked up before. P447 falls within the Physical Immortality chapter in mine! I have bought several Star Signs over the years and all have been identical with the exception of the newest one I bought for a present, which does not have the Chaldean-Hebrew Kabala Numerical Alphabet printed on a cardboard-insert page sadly. So the only explanation I can suggest is that you perhaps have a Hard Cover edition which we cannot procure in New Zealand. If this is so, are they still procurable in the States?

and Miracle.... hiSSelf & himSelf are still not valid elf words so I have yet to see the difference (re previous reference )

in Love and Light

I have a paperback version also! It is the St. Martin's edition Nov. 1988 and the page reference is in the Lexigram chapter. Isn't that interesting that there are so many editions? The nice thing is, it got me to pick up my copy again and start browsing through once more...

imajre - your page ref's put my in "Forgotten Melodies" - and I "forgot" how much I had enjoyed that chapter. A synchronicity perhaps?

Gosh, all this talk of page numbers, got me curious. My copy is page 447 also, St.Martin's 1987....of course, my book is so worn, that the pages are on the verge of falling out!!

I have an original autographed hardcover first edition, and that page falls into Chapter Nine for me as well.

Re Star Signs.
First published in Great Britain 1987 by Macmillan, London.

My 2nd to oldest - still in one piece! - was published in 1988 by Pan Books, London.

My Sun Signs & Love Signs Are Pan also.

They also published L.G's. Love Poems which is probably your Venus Trines at Midnight but I have not been able to purchase a copy of either!

(Love signs also says... 1978 by Mannitou Enterprises Unlimited.) This reminded me of how she corrected the spelling of Manitou in
the Lexigram chapter P344!

Mine is same as Imajre's. Printed in The United Kingdom, 1987. with relevant pages being 347 & 348.

I guess NZ is influenced more by the British publishers rather than American. By the way, hardcover is literally unavailable here in Britain!

And Randall - is there a smilie for "I am so jealous!"?

That would be a tough smilie to do.
