ABLAS - Astrology for a better life
Roland Legrand is the originator of the adventure that began in August 1982, following a « karmic » encounter with George Moore, an American writer based in Karana Downs , near Brisbane, in Australia, where Roland had just moved to relocate “Down-Under” after a couple of years in France. One evening, George came knocking on Roland’s door to introduce himself. Knowing that Roland was French added to the pleasure of such meeting. Indeed, George had lived in France many years in his youth, and he had kept very fond memories of that period. He could still remember many French words and sentences. He also partly understood the spoken language. After a few minutes of trivial conversation around a glass of wine and some crackers, George wanted to know what Roland’s “job” was and when he heard about astrology he challenge Roland to “guess” his zodiac sign. When Roland replied that he saw his guest as a “typical Gemini”, which was the right answer, George became Roland’s instant fan. He was convinced and all the more interested in learning more about the subject… When Roland said that he was in the process of writing a book on astrology, George suggested not to go down that road, explaining that only the publisher would make some money, not the author, unless the book became a best seller, which was very unlikely. “Don’t write a book, write a course and set up your own School of astrology! That will be much more uplifting and rewarding in many ways and for many years.” George was so right! And to help Roland to a good start, he put his small writing business (The Better-Moore Associates) to work on setting up the first module of the complete course. He even worked on the drawing of the School’s logo! George also found the School’s name, saying that if astrology was meant to improve life, it could be called “A BETTER LIFE SCHOOL OF ASTROLOGY” (ABLSA) which was soon changed to “A BETTER LIFE ASTROLOGY SCHOOL” (ABLAS) which is still operating today, more than three decades later… George lost a long battle against cancer and died on Australia Day, the 26 th of January 1984. Roland always believed that his karmic encounter with George was also the last earthly “mission” for that good man. George’s spirit will always remain, at least as long as ABLAS continues to dispense astrology and Roland is mentally able to do so, which should hopefully last yet for many years...
