A Tribute to the Cosmic Muffin

It is with honor and respect that I write about Darrell Martinie, the Cosmic Muffin, and extraordinary Boston astrologer. Darrell made astrology a household word in New England. He was dashing and witty, extravagant, outrageous, and at times irreverent. He did not do sun-sign astrology, and yet his astrological "weather reports" were the talk of the town. He reported what was going on in the heavens and people listened. He talked about Mercury retrogrades, Jupiter squares, eclipses and the myriad of things that astrologers know so well, but are a mystery to the public. He talked about these things so that people understood them, and his listeners made astrology their conversation during lunch, dinner, and breaks at the water cooler. People got a kick out of what he said, and yet they followed his advice. He made astrology fun, useful, and memorable for everyone.

Darrell's life was like a who's who of astrology. For 25 years, he greeted commuters as they made the morning and evening trek to and/or from work. His radio program was syndicated across the country, and he was appointed the Official Boston Astrologer by Governor William Weld in 1993.

Last week The Lynn Item reported, "a star fell from astrology's firmament Wednesday, when the Saugus resident succumbed following a three-year illness." We astrologers know a star has been born in the firmament. Go Darrell!!

My heartfelt thoughts go out to his family, friends, and fans.
