Few people, even in the UK, know about the beauties of the English Border County of Shropshire; I feel privileged to live here and have decided to sing its praises in these pages. South Shropshire is a particularly quiet, very rural part of the world, far from busy crowds and the hustle and bustle of modern cities. The Shropshire Hills have been granted the status of AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) as well as Area of Tranquility.

The Sun enters the House of Aries:
He that is born in Aries shall be of good wit, and neither rich nor poor. He shall be soon angry and soon pleased. He shall have damage by his neighbours, he shall have power over dead folks' goods. He shall be a liar and unsteadfast of courage, and will take vengeance on his enemies. Unto thirty-four years he shall be a fornicator, and wedded at thirty-five; and if he be not he shall not be chaste. He shall have great sickness at twenty-two years, and if he escape he shall live seventy-five years after nature.
The woman that is born in this time shall be ireful, and suffer great wrongs from day to day. She shall lose her husband and recover a better. She shall be sick at five years, and in danger at twenty-five, and if she escape, she shall be in doubt until forty-three years, but afterwards prosper.
