Astrological Quizzes

Maritha Pottenger

A couple of our readers have requested that we run a column of astrological quizzes, testing the concepts of the astrological alphabet (“Zip code”) as we see it. Over the years, a number of our theories have been put out in The Mutable Dilemma, and in the Astrology Intensives we teach in Montana, Houston and elsewhere. This column is in the nature of an experiment—to satisfy a stated desire. We would appreciate very much hearing from our readers (pro and con) whether you would like to see more of the same periodically.

If you do like the column, let us know if this issue’s questions are too easy, too hard, about right. If the answers are not sufficiently elaborated, tell us and we can devote more space to some of these issues.
