About the writer: WolfStar is the pen name Michael O'Reilly, a professional astrologer and columnist living in Bend, Oregon. He writes regularly for the nation's largest circulation astrology magazine, Dell Horoscope, and has been a featured columnist for  American Astrology and The Mountain Astrologer. He is best known for his promotion of the Scorpio Rising USA horoscope and use of asteroids in chart interpretation.

NewsScope has been published every week since August 1997. Originally, NewsScope was part of an AOL "greenhouse" project called AstroNet, but when that enterprise was sold, NewsScope was picked up by a few web sites. NewsScope's only venture (so far) into print media was when it  was a regular feature in The Mountain Astrologer for about 18 months. Examples of what's found in NewsScope are featured throughout NeptuneCafe.

Reader Feedback

"What a Gem you are. As usual your 10/2 NewsScope article was fine, just fine, fine, fine.  I appreciate your crisp, to the point style. Best wishes for continued success."

"Love your weekly email ... keep up the good work."

"Here's hoping most of your NewsScope readers feel as I do, and also pay for subscriptions. I find each edition to be several lessons in astrology. Also I think your book is very good and I recommend it to anyone I know who's interested in astrology."

"Just read another topnotch piece by you in StarIQ this week. 
I cannot believe that every week you write such an excellent view of what's hot in the pop/political/cultural world!
Thanks again--I set my clock by your Tuesday piece. And I tell my own clients to read you too!."

"Michael, wanted to let you know I sent your article on the Pope to the Diane Rehm show on NPR. She will be discussing the Pope for the next hour. Hope she uses your insights. Thought it was great and provided a better view of the man who wears the ring."

"First I want to thank you for your weekly NewScope articles. They are really wonderful. I read them each week. I love NewsScope. ..."

"I really have enjoyed reading your takes on situations. I am a real beginner astrologer, soaking up what I can. Your descriptions such as "First, her Venus is angular (being conjunct the fourth house cusp)," as in the story about Pamela Anderson are so helpful and so sound that it really makes sense. What a great author you are. Thank you for your insights. You are so right on most of the time. You make this look like a science. Keep up the great work."

NewsScope Format

Each column is around 800 words and contains three articles, each with its own theme and title. The first and second articles delve into the week's top news stories, and explain how these events reflect actual planetary cycles.

Be sure to read the Top Five Astro-Events, published in NewsScope at the beginning of each month
"Thank you for your political analysis of current events. I find that part of your column very insightful and useful. It gives me hope that as the wheel turns we may not have nuclear war and we may stop slaughtering people. I really thank you for that hope. It's all we have left on some days."

"Congratulations on scoring your 'direct hit' on the Jon Benet case, Michael!  It's especially cool that your forecast was reported in the Wall Street Journal on Friday, three days before the prosecutor's announcement.  (Somehow, the WSJ report makes your forecast "credible".) Three cheers.  Well done.   I trust the major media will be beating a path to your door from now on."
