Some things to know while reading these articles:
The articles posted here may have appeared before in Llewellyn's various annual publications: Moon Sign Book, Magical Almanac, Witches Datebook, Witches Calendar, Astrological Calendar, Sun Sign book and others. These articles, however, are the original manuscript versions, re-edited a bit by Estelle. They may contain material that was edited out of the Llewellyn publications for length or other reasons. They may also contain material which never made it to submission, again edited for length. Estelle understands she is not a perfect writer, and so any style/clarity issues found here are her fault and not that of any of Llewellyn's editors.
Some of the articles Estelle wrote were rewrites or compilations of earlier articles. Some articles are expansions of earlier articles. The good writer is not afraid to plagiarize themself whenever possible. At any rate, Estelle has decided to post the most complete version of the article, and not duplicate herself.
There are about nine million ways to spell Kabbalah. How it is spelt is somewhat immaterial to Estelle. She used various spellings in the articles. As long as we all know we mean Kabbalah (or whatever), it's OK. Estelle does understand some people feel certain spellings have specialized meanings, but she doesn't use those special spellings and meanings. Her choice.
There are articles that contain humor. Hopefully it is self-evident and will not offend. To those who feel humor is not something that has a place in astrology or metaphysical instruction, oh well. Estelle feels differently. If you don't like it, don't read it.
Most of the articles were written between 1995 and 2003. Obviously, many things have happened between then and now. The next Star Wars movies have come out, and the franchise has been revitalized, and sold to another studio, for better or worse. Star Trek (in its many incarnations) has settled into reruns. There has been a Great Recession in 2008 (perhaps the precursors of which were hinted at in the Mars 2003 article), and the fallout therefrom. We are still in Afghanistan, and the rest of the Middle East. Sigh. I will not go into the various presidents and their foibles—some way more than others. So things are somewhat dated, but the underlying principles are still sound. Staying safe on Facebook is the same as staying safe on chatboards.
This incarnation of Estelle’s website was necessitated by Google’s new requirements that websites be secure etc. etc. It looks and operates differently, but now Estelle does not need another person to manage it for her. It took a while (Estelle uses computers but is not a computer person), and a lot of frustration and brain sweat, but she managed it. So maybe more new articles will appear from time to time. Then again godaddy only allows 50 pages per website, so maybe not. There was compilation and rewriting, but it is still a lot of articles.
