That column that tracks the moon has been there almost from the start, after the first couple of issues. The 4th house section has been from the start, articles have been there from the start, humor has been there almost from the start. CB: In the first few issues, you started pushing to expand relatively quickly after that point. And pretty early on you had a supporter who helped you and almost mentored you in that process.
Morrison, is that right? I was just selling through the stores. I thought it was the store [who owned them]. And I guess one of Al H. So he was the first subscriber. And that gave me the idea— subscriptions! Good idea! Basically, I was a researcher and writer. I had to learn everything else.
CB: Right. So he became one of your biggest proponents in helping you to expand rapidly? TT: Yes, he was supportive. He wrote articles for us in the early days. At one point, when I was telling him I needed to reach more people and get the word out to other astrologers, he smuggled me a list of the NCGR membership names and addresses.
So I used that to do a big mailing, about two or three thousand copies of the magazine. I had a friend in Cleveland who was an astrologer who loaned me some money so I could do the extra print run. There was sort of a big splash at the time. TT: Yep, and that got a lot of subscription checks back in the mail. Then it started rolling from there.
I could take that money from the subscriptions and invest it in the next issue, and so on and so forth. It was rocky. It started getting more stable by It [became] a little more financially secure. CB: But you kept investing back in the business. And one thing you did, pretty early on, was to incorporate other writers, and contacting some established astrologers and asking them if you could use excerpts from their books, right?
TT: Correct, yes. I think maybe in I started doing that. There was one woman I interviewed, an astrologer— her name was Nan DeGrove — and I think she was sometime during the first year. She is a local astrologer. CB: Wow! So you were already doing interviews. Who were some of the people whose book excerpts you [published]?

TT: Demetra George, I believe. Donna Cunningham. I know he provided an article, if not a book excerpt, pretty early on. Steve was a strong influence when I was studying astrology. So I was thrilled to get an article or anything from him. And also from Donna and Demetra. And Bill Herbst was particularly supportive in the early days and provided some articles. Morrison, and a number of other people. It seems like, in terms of your chronology, there was also an important turning point in with the 2nd United Astrology Conference that took place in New Orleans that year, right?
So I met a ton of people. I barely made it there. I had maybe enough for a few meals. An astrologer named Ron Pearce Sp? But the magazine was growing and it was almost two years or a year and a half old, and you decided to go to this big astrology conference. It was only the second United Astrology Conference, where all of the major organisations pulled their resources to hold one big mega conference. You showed up there and you were able to share a trade show booth with another astrologer in order to promote the magazine. It ended up being a hit, right?

But certainly people were talking to me, picking it up. So, they did. Also, mostly, it paved the way for a lot of new articles. I remember riding this shuttle back to the airport with Bruce Scofield. On the way to the airport, we talked about an article he could write for us. So, it was a lot of fun.
It was great.

CB: You were sort of scraping by at this point. One of the things that was funny was the editorial that you wrote for NTMA on the 30th anniversary, late last year, just a few issues ago. You talked about how you were kind of broke during that period, so you slept under the table at the trade show, to just get by at that point. TT: Yes, it was kind of like a canopy bed because the drapes came down from both sides of the table.
The rug was very plush. It was a thick plush rug. There were security guards at the trade show who knew I was doing that, but were cool with it, because this was New Orleans. They were just very open people and they were willing to do that.

So things started looking a little better as the conference went on. TT: Yes, we fell out of touch for a while after that. But then we became friends and she ended up writing for us regularly. Yes, a lot of friends were made from that conference. Bruce Scofield for instance wrote a column for us, and still does.
CB: So at this point, the magazine is taking off in the early s. In terms of your personal life, you met your wife around this time period, around right? TT: Yes, I was in Michigan. I did a lot of back and forth to the Midwest, to Cleveland. I started in Michigan in Northern Indiana. I was living near Ann Arbor and I met Kate on the phone because she had decided to try to help me get the magazine into more stores in Berkeley.
She heard about the magazine through a friend of hers who was also doing that in the Bay Area for me. Back then, I relied a lot on people to do the stores in their area, including stocking the shelves, collect the money and all that stuff. She was offering to do that. First, we had some brief conversations, but later in early we started having longer conversations. One thing lead to another and by the middle of , I was living in Berkeley, sharing her apartment. So, it was great. She also had editing skills which I did not.
For the first two and a half years of the magazine I was doing very light editing; spell checking, commas, does this make sense, can I follow the article, that was about it. She had some more skills, so she became the first Editor. CB: By this point, the early s, the magazine is really taking off. You started organising a series of conferences, right? TT: Yes, I had an idea. It was actually on a train ride out to meet Kate in person for the first time, after talking to her on the phone for a few months.
As the train was passing through Utah, I had this idea for a conference. People would come and anyone could present. It was very Aquarian again, very open. I would call it Planet Camp and it would be in some retreat centre somewhere, in nature. I did that in and had just 40 people show up. It was pretty skimpy, but it was fun. We had a people that time and it was beautiful and I would say at least half the people did presentations.
We did some panels that were pre-arranged. We had cabins and camping and it was gorgeous weather. We did a talent show, camp-fire circles and things like that. But it was a ton of work. At the time we were doing nine issues a year, so I think that cured me of doing conferences too. CB: Yes, I think everyone has this idea of how great it would be to put on a conference and how much fun it would be. Then you start organising it and you realise how much work goes into versus whatever the payoff is at the end. TT: Yes, exactly. I moved a lot before that. But the business just got large enough with employees, we were fortunate that we really liked the area and so we are happy to be here.
Are there any mountains near you now? TT: Yes, we are in the foothills and the Sierra Nevada is just a short drive up. We are 20 minutes from some real mountains. CB: I guess that still counts then. TT: We were printing about 25,, copies at that point. It all depended on how many would sell in the stores too. The maximum number of subscribers was about 10, in maybe , somewhere around there. As I said, with the internet, an amazing amount of information was available on the internet and facebook, it definitely took a bite out of the magazine.
So, we had a period of contraction. The moon hit maximum South declination and then it starts coming up again. It kind of fit the expansion and contraction of the magazine. You guys have definitely continued to grow and adapt to the times. I think this is one of the reasons it is still a mainstay in the community.
It is still one of the main hubs for communication and for finding out what is going on in the community, what people are focused on, and figuring out what the pulse of the community is. The fact that you guys have been offering the digital version since the late s definitely helps that. The rest get print subscriptions with digital included. They can access it if they register for it. They can just be digital only and not pay as much.
CB: Sure, that makes sense. TMA is unique in the community because it is very high quality. You actually hire professional editors to help authors to improve their articles and work through them, with them, instead of just printing anything. You have a serious focus on good graphic design, layout and aesthetic appeal. We have a great editorial staff. She is a huge reason why the magazine is still going. CB: I know with any articles that I published with TMA back when I was still doing the electional column, the article was always 10 times better than what I originally submitted, as a result of her serious editorial input.
This was really my first experience working with a professional editor and seeing why this was important and why you need to hire an editor when you are publishing an article or book. TT: Yes, totally, definitely. You can always tell people who are experienced with writing and are more open [and] receptive to the editing.
That is, has TMA helped launched any careers, or has TMA featured any younger and up and coming Astrologers earlier on in their careers, that later ended up becoming more prominent in the community? Launched by ourselves? No, I doubt it. But helped launch. I would say that I am probably the only one that has used TMA exclusively to become more prominent. CB: I know for me, I published articles there. You re-published an article of mine on sect on around from one of my websites. We did a 2-part series together in or which was my Introduction To Hellenistic Astrology. If you read that, it really is a shortened condensed, page version of my book, which took another 5 years to come out.
But you can see glimpses of that in that series which I did for TMA back then. TT: Another person who has really contributed a lot and hopefully it has helped his career, is Frank Clifford. The music issue was his idea in , where astrology and music was the theme. CB: Sure, those themed issues have been really interesting. I think he did one on modern psychological astrology. Those have always been really interesting. He contacted 11 astrologers and asked them to write about an astrologer who greatly influenced them.
Most of them are deceased astrologers. There is one who is still living. We are primarily looking, in this particular project, for deceased astrologers who were either legends or mentors to these people. TT: Do you want to hear the names of some of the astrologers who are being written about? Morrison and the Gauquelins. CB: Wow, that should be an amazing issue.
That will be the whole focus? TT: Well, no. Each contributor will have a 2-page spread with, in most cases, the chart of the person being written about. TT: Yes, so Frank pulled that together for us. It was a really good idea. So we might do more in the future with maybe living astrologers. Even your connection with Al H. Morrison, and his helping you and playing an instrumental role in getting TMA together, is a really interesting, unique and important piece of history that otherwise people might not know about.
So I was glad we got to talk about that a little bit here. CB: As we are hitting into the home stretch of this, I had some general questions that I came up with and some from listeners. I was hoping that I could run these by you, if that works for you? If you have a good answer, great. I was curious if you have a notable interview that you really remember doing, or that stands out to you? TT: I have enjoyed my interviews with Rob Hand. That was a lot of fun. CB: Yes, that was fun. TT: I remember some from the 90s I really enjoyed.
I enjoyed Mary Plumb. She is our book reviewer. I think Mary first started working with us first in Mary and I sat down and interviewed Charles and Suzie Harvey back in That was really a lot of fun. We also interviewed Steven and Jodie Forrest together back then. I think that is in the same issue, June , which is one of the ones that is digitally available now. There are so many interviews that I have enjoyed or I thought were really great. The TMA index online has a whole different pdf file for just the interviews. My musical guest is Blue Museum, who I met the other day when they were sound checking for the release of their EP single.

Aries March April 19 — It is as if you are a bridge. On one side is what formed during the years of individuating yourself. On the other side, a newer plateau you reached after an evolutionary leap sometime during the last five years or so a place you are still becoming fully aware of. Either choice will require some effort. Sustaining the status quo will entail constant, indefinite maintenance.
The alternative is to metaphorically move a lot of material by doing some proverbial heavy lifting for a while, ultimately allowing you to relax. There is no good or bad in either elective. There is no right or wrong, either. It is a choice to be grateful for. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link. Taurus April May 20 — Reputation is a funny thing.

Over the last year or so, a different imperative may have come to the fore.
