When she’s not writing books or performing her nightly radio show, the astrologer is also an author, an activist and a teacher.
The world-renowned Lila, who lives in a secluded, secluded cottage in the hills of England’s north-east, has devoted her life to exploring the hidden meanings of her own astrological horoscopes.
But now, in her new book, Needle Chart Astrology, she’s finally getting her hands on the most accurate and scientifically accurate way of predicting the future.
“I wanted to find out if astrology can predict the future,” Lila told Al Jazeera.
“The needle chart is the best predictor I’ve found.”
What is the needle?
A needle chart, also known as a astrolabe, is a chart that shows the paths of the stars through the heavens.
The chart is made up of a series of concentric circles.
Each circle corresponds to a star in the sky, with the stars in the circles representing the planets.
Astrologers use the stars to chart the movements of the planets, the seasons and the planets’ motions in their orbits around the sun.
“A needle charts is an accurate way to predict the planets that we see,” Lilla said.
“You can look at the planets and the seasons of the year and you can predict when the planets are going to come into view.”‘
It was like looking into the past’Lila has been studying astrology for decades.
She began by looking at the stars as she was learning how to read and write.
“When I was growing up, I just used my imagination, like you see in a lot of history books.
I was just reading books and I was trying to figure out the future and the way things were going to be,” Lina said.
“I didn’t really know what the future was, so I just thought about it, like, ‘What would happen if I had the knowledge to look back at my life?'”
But that was not the only time she studied astrology.
“It was kind of like looking at a distant past in the past and looking at how things would be if I could just see things as they were at the time,” Lile said.
Lila began her study of astrolaography by studying the star chart and the astrolabes that were made from it.
“If I look at a star chart, it tells you where the stars are in the heavens,” she said.
“So, if I look up at the night sky and look at one star, it will tell me what that star is doing at the moment, what it is doing.
I would then look up, and it tells me what it will be doing the next time.
It was like seeing into the future.”
The chart was a big part of Lila’s life growing up.
“My parents taught me about astronomy and astrology and the needle charts,” Lillas mother, Mary, told Aljazeera.
“My mum would read the needle for me and then I would take it home with me.”
The needle charts were also used as a reference for Lila to calculate the planets positions when they would pass through her eyes, as well as the seasons. “
It would be like looking through a window into the stars, because the stars were very small, so they are not visible from the sky,” Liliya added.
The needle charts were also used as a reference for Lila to calculate the planets positions when they would pass through her eyes, as well as the seasons.
“It was just like, if it’s raining, and you look at that chart and it says, ‘this will rain in seven days,’ then that would be the year when it would rain, and if it was not raining, it would be a good year,” Lily said.
After graduating from university, Lila went on to study psychology at the University of Warwick.
She became an astrologist and has also been working in a number of organisations around the world, including the Royal Society of Chemistry, the National Astronomical Society, the Royal Astronomical Association, the British Astrological Society and the British Medical Association.
“The needle is a really important piece of science, because it’s like a clock,” Liles mother, Julie, said.
When Lila first read Needle chart Astrology she was excited to learn about astrology itself.
“This was really a book that I had been reading all my life and I felt like I had to read it and learn about it,” Lilia said.
She said she was particularly excited to discover that the needle was an accurate predictor of the future, “because it would also tell me when I was going to see what it was going through.
It would tell you when it was really going to happen.”
