Lois Rodden Left Us Today
It is my sad duty to report that Lois Rodden left her body today at around 8:30 am PDT in Yucaipa, CA. She chose a powerful time to leave. Neptune was on her ascendant and a Jupiter/Moon conjunction straddled her descendant. She always told me that Jupiter should be involved
in a death because from the soul's point of view it was such a great boon
Lois is in the enviable position of leaving this Earth
with a job well done—a substantial job well done.
Her work has changed astrology for all time. When she
entered the field, there were no standards for data integrity. (Saturn is conjunct her MC and at the handle of a bucket.) Incorrect birth data
were innocently repeated over and over. The computer acronym GIGO (Garbage
In; Garbage Out) comes to mind. Things are different now. Better books
and articles are being written because they are grounded in a broad base
of thousands of clean and well-organized birth data. Every serious astrological
writer now checks their work against the data in her AstroDatabank.
Lois died of cancer (her seventh) and was ready to go
without fear. She regrets not being able to attend college in this life
but has firm plans of attending an Ivy League university in her next life.
She leaves behind five children, many friends, and a field that is forever
in her debt. She died at home with all her children in attendance.
Six months before she died Lois named her successor. After
three years of trying out different authors, a name came to her in a flash.
Pat Taglilatelo would be perfect. And she is. Pat has been working as
Lois's understudy since January and is now prepared to assume the mantel.
Lois Rodden's legacy will continue for many decades to come.
Surely she is in a better place now and having a glorious
time pawing through the Akashic records looking up those birth times that
eluded her down here.
