'Transcendental Nations: Underaspected Planets in the Birth of Nations'

"This is a sparkling new site by my cyber friend Couteau, whose work in expanding on Astro * Carto* Graphy continues to gobsmack me! His work in this field is inspiring a lot of interest and I have noticed a trend developing where we are looking for practical applications and more 'down to earth' uses for our astrology. This is compatible with Scott Whitters and my own work in the field of local space and garden and architectural design and I urge you to visit Couteau's site as it brings new color to the concept of mundane astrology and the nature of nations."

Linda Reid,
author of Crossing the Threshold: The Astrology of Dreaming (Penguin), Nov. 1998 "PanPlanet Newsletter" review.

'Role of the Least-aspected Planet':

“Your material is superb ... Because of my interest in aspects as well as Astro * Carto * Graphy I found your discussion of least-aspected planets very interesting and can validate some of it. Had never looked at this concept in A*C*G before and am excited with what I've found. Will go back to your site often ... I find the triple-zero Transcendentals fascinating...”

Donna Van Toen,
author of The Astrologer's Node Book & The Mars Book (Weiser’s), 13 June 1998.

"I had a guru with an unaspected Sun. He always thought that it allowed him the maximum freedom of expressing the Sun's meaning and function. Perhaps aspects not only help manifest or express a planet's meaning and function they also limit its scope of action."

Dr Victor Mansfield,
author of Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making

and Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Colgate University, 15 Oct 1998.

"I've just checked into your website, and I am extremely impressed with your discoveries and presentation! Thank you. Please know that your work requires / deserves much time for study and assimilation........I feel it is really a "book" that all of us should study..."
