In 1992 Jim Lewis had a manuscript too “hot” to publish. In 2002 not only is it an historical tour de force but also eerily current and completely relevant to the crisis that the US and the world now enacts. With the second generation Bush at the helm of the Great Ship US, the prophetic profundity of Jim Lewis' work has come about - this is no outdated raving of the lunatic fringe, but a coherent and touching personal history as it is a remarkable tale of collective growth. His fascination with Jung's work, the archetypes of individual and collective unconscious, his astrological brilliance, and his ability to articulate the impossible is here - all in Peter Pan in Midlife.
I called him 'Cassandro', being the gay male puer activist prophet that he was . . . indeed, as self confessed puer aeternus, he did not live to old age. Jim is best known for his brilliant contribution to contemporary astrology with his inventive Astro*Carto*Graphy® maps. He was the recipient of the prestigious “Marc Edmund Jones Award”, as well as a United Astrology Congress “Regulus Award” for technical brilliance. A Gemini, his mind was his playground, as well as his shadow-box. In this book, which I edited over a decade, I could hear him again - his words living on the page - making me laugh, cry and be just simply overwhelmed by the sheer force of his intellect and his humanity. Jim Lewis died on February 21, 1995 at home in San Francisco, with his closest friends and sister at his side.
