Welcome to the Lunation Press website. We are a specialist book publishing company with interests in Astrology, Aviation, Literature, Botany, Screenplays and Children's books. Degrees of Flight is our first publication, and we have other titles in development. Our policy at Lunation Press is to produce books that are not only unique but offer new insights in their chosen subject. Whilst we would love to produce a best seller, the introduction of digital printing has also meant that very small print runs are available to cater for niche marketing books.

Book Cover

Degrees of Flight explores the major aviation events from the Montgolfier Balloon ascent in 1783 to the last commercial flight of Concorde in 2003, a span of 220 years from an astrological perspective. The most important event since 1783 was the flight by the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, USA in 1903. It demonstrated that Man had mastered the dimension of the skies through the use of powered and controlled aircraft. An astrological argument has arisen that a special degree - the MC degree or Midheaven of 5 degrees Sagittarius for the chart of that event somehow represents the paradigm of powered flight.

The Kitty Hawk chart is shown here, drawn for 10.35am on December 17th 1903. The book examines the MC argument in some detail, comparing Kitty Hawk to significant later first flights. This includes a chapter on the British Comet 1 airliner of the 1950's using voyage reports and correspondence from BOAC archives as well as official crash reports, and finds not only new connections but the discovery of the importance of the black Moon within aviation astrology. (Seen here conjunct the Ascendant.)

Degrees of Flight also develops new methods of prediction, to predict not only when but where an aviation event is likely to happen - good or bad - through Solar returns and new Moons or lunations.

Kitty Hawk

The book is an enjoyable read because it has been written in a fictional style based upon fact, putting you the reader there at the time of the events, with me the official astrologer making reports and drawing up charts. There are over 40 photographs of aircraft, some in colour, and over 320 charts placed carefully in the text as the story unfolds over 224 pages.

Degrees of Flight is a unique book that takes a sceptical view of astrology. This healthy attitude lets the astrology drive the story through the astrological signatures of prediction, and through post analysis of these events I learn more as an astrologer. This analysis uncovers issues which may challenge some long held beliefs and upset the current mind set of main-stream astrologers. However, the new findings reveal a Universal Truth that, once accepted, will push astrology further.
