Voices of the Stars, By Mother Goose. Mother Goose's Preface  [1/11]

Mother Goose


Serial, Discourse, Drollery


Astrology, Charlatanry, Prognostication

    Written to represent an individual of limited literacy and possessing an erratic nature, this begins by deriding the astrological 'Physicians' Richard J Morrison and Francis Moore, but then begins to speculate on the possible impact of Jupiter's location in Libra on international and domestic affairs. This includes 'Mother Goose's' series of spoof horoscopes.
