THE MOONSTONE LEGACY TRILOGY
by Diana de Gunzburg and Tony Wild
A REMARKABLE NOVEL THAT WILL FASCINATE ALL ASTROLOGERS
This is the novel that lovers of astrology have been waiting for, a unique trilogy that has astronomy and astrology hard-wired into its plot. On the surface, it’s a thrilling adventure mystery story – but look more closely and you’ll find it’s based on a lunar timetable and has the relevant moon phase at the head of every one of its 170 chapters. The plot involves solar and lunar eclipses, calculations of the moon’s whereabouts based on longitude, latitude and the equation of time, as well as involving precession, equinoxes and the alignment of ancient monuments to celestial events. And it even stars a meteoritic diamond in the form of the sacred Moonstone diamond of the title, the arrival of which on earth ushers in the “Age of Aquarius”. Or does it..?
Eminent astronomers have been consulted during the writing of the book, including Professor Robert Kirschner, former president of American Astronomical Society, Fred Espenak of NASA and others, one of whom – Professor Anja Andersen from the Dark Cosmology Institute in Copenhagen – commented; ” ‘Why is the universe so suited to life?’ In successfully dramatising this compelling question, The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy takes the reader on a thrilling voyage of mind and imagination, yet at the same time keeps us firmly rooting for our brave, funny and funky heroine through all her terrifying ordeals.” (her full review is published on our website www.moonstonelegacy.com – as you’ll see, she’s very taken with the book’s educational potential both for adults and younger readers)
We’ve also had a terrific review from the astrological perspective from Susyn Blair-Hunt, MsD (Doctor of Metaphysics), Psychic, Astrologer, Metaphysical Consultant. She writes…
“The Moonstone Legacy has been a wonderful adventure, and I have to say, the most entertaining and enlightening book I’ve read in years! From the moment I opened to the first chapter, I became a part of the story, not just a silent observer. I found myself studying the maps, reviewing the spiritual influences (as an astrologer and psychic with a doctorate in Metaphysics, I found the timing and alignment of events to be spot on) and responding to each twist and turn as if it were happening to me, in real time.
As I urged Lizzy on, I realized that it was as important to me as to her that she discover the hidden and mystical gifts to be revealed just a few pages ahead.
The Moonstone Legacy speaks to all of us on a deep and resounding level, reawakening the childlike wonder and unfettered courage we should all live our lives by. If you read nothing else this year, the transformational power of The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy is a must!”
But it’s not just professional astronomers and astrologers who’ve responded so favourably to the book – author William Dalrymple wrote:
“A most ingenious and imaginative sequel to my favourite Victorian novel”, and celebrated children’s writer Michael Morpurgo commented: “A compelling East-West adventure… a sumptuous saga.”
We’re convinced that by introducing astronomical and astrological ideas in an uniquely exciting context, it’ll turn on many previously uninterested people to the real-world magic of the celestial world.
The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy was recently launched in one volume at the University Women’s Club in London with a speech by Professor Sara Russell, Head of Mineral and Planetary Sciences at the Natural History Museum, London. Her dramatic production of a vial of tiny meteoritic diamonds overshadowed even that of Terry Jones of Monty Python fame, who read an extract from the book, and that of the Indian High Commissioner to the UK (a fan of the book) also made a speech about it.
