“Haines springs from Theodor W. Adorno’s The Stars Down to Earth, which posits astrology in relation to fascism in 1950s California. Haines revisits the Carroll Righter Astrological Foundation to reflect on current-day Los Angeles and the global events between the EU and Greece, leading up to the U.S. pre-election in 2016. As judgment is suspended and we look to greater forces to plug out, a question remains: Do the stars inform politics, or do politics control the stars?” This essay originally appeared in N-o-nS…e;nSI/c::::a_L’s third issue, (wrong).
