What's in the stars? New horoscope column debuts
Bill Auchterlonie

Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Bill Auchterlonie has been studying the stars for more than 40 years and this week his astrology column debuts in The Lake Report.

Though not considered a science, astrology is entertaining and his column promises humour and insights into the week ahead.

“To me, it’s like a language with archetypical imagery that matches psychology and coincidence,” he says.

A retired radio broadcaster, Auchterlonie has a fine arts film degree and has been active in the arts community for many years. He also is a regular contributor to Arabella, an art and design magazine.

“My interest in astrology began when I was in university, studying ancient religious sites like Stonehenge, the pyramids in Egypt, and north and central American earthworks, which were all astronomically inspired,” he says.

Paranormal expert Allen Spraggett was regular guest on Auchterlonie’s talk show.

“He is also a student of astrology and explained that my surviving a hit-and-run accident in 1980 was related to my nearly drowning at age four. I had no knowledge of this. He said, ‘Ask your mom.’ “

“When she confirmed this fact, I was hooked.”
