George (1876-1954) was the Welsh-born father of the attempt to present astrology on a "scientific" basis. The journal contained the usual astrological notices of favorable and unfavorable days in the coming month, forecasts, book reviews, explanations of astrological theory, answers to readers’ questions, etc. George started as an astrologician for Ida Hulery Fletcher’s Portland School of Astrology, founded by her in 1900, which originally published this journal. In 1912, George severed his connection with the P.S.A. (Fletcher changed the name to Portland School of Astrology and Publishing Company, and published the P.S.A. Bulletin) and began the Llewellyn College of Astrology, and Publishing Company originally in Portland and then in Los Angeles, which continued the publication of this journal. Advertised in Azoth, April 1918: "Practical Readings, Interpretations, Predictions, Lessons and Useful Information about National Mundane, Agricultural and Personal Affairs. Contains daily and monthly outlook for progressive people, based upon planetary vibrations, showing how to work WITH Nature for best results. Fascinating, enlightening, inspiring." Noted in exchanges of The Occult Digest, 1925, and advertised in L’Astrosophie, February 1930: "Gives practical daily indications for better progress in business, social, domestic and farming affairs."
