Venus retrograde in Gemini: face the difficult conversations

During Venus retrograde we have an opportunity to reflect on our relationships. On 13 May Venus stations retrograde at 21° degrees Gemini, remaining in retrograde motion until 25 June when it stations direct at 5 degrees Gemini. During this time it spends a goodly portion of its time in square to transiting Neptune. We can expect this [read more...]

Working with difficult transits: the power of surrender

Working with difficult transits can take us beyond the limited and limiting ideas we have about ourselves and our reality. We may know this, but when we’re in the midst of it words like this don’t mean much. What we need are practical tools to bring ourselves into alignment with ‘what is’, to release the tension [read more...]

Jupiter turns direct: the path opens up

If you’re like me and have planets between 14 and 16 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Cancer or Aries, you’re probably still experiencing the emotional aftershocks of Saturday’s lunar eclipse, especially as the Sun continues to activate the Uranus Pluto square for a couple more days.

With Venus in Taurus from 6 March to 4 April 2020 we may find ourselves craving a more meaningful and literal connection with nature.

Saturn retrograde: the art of pruning

Saturn retrograde? Oh no! Due to lack of understanding and negative hype, the word ‘retrograde’ has a tendency to freak people out. In reality retrograde periods are second chances, opportunities to go back over old ground and complete missions we may not have got right the first time. Saturn has a similarly bad reputation.

Mars ignites the Uranus Pluto square

On 11th March Mars will conjoin Uranus in Aries, adding its restless, impetuous energy to the already strong and building tension of the Uranus Pluto square. Those personally affected by the Uranus Pluto square have probably been feeling blocked in the areas of life affected by the transit, or are experiencing delays and difficulties in [read more...]

Mars in Aries: consciously seek balance

With Mars in Aries from today I’m having a late start. I began with a lazy breakfast, coffee in the early Spring sunshine and a tarot reading. This is because I know myself to be a person of very fiery temperament. With so many planets in fire signs I have to be careful not to burn myself out when the transiting planets enter Leo, [read more...]

Growing through difficult transits

Venus in Pisces: true love and illusion

Feeling the love? Venus, planet of relationships and connection, moved into Pisces on 27th January and will remain there until 20th February. Venus in Pisces brings compassion in conflict, empathy in partnerships and, for those who are susceptible, a tendency to fall madly in love. Very often with the wrong person! It’s an [read more...]

Fear not the Mercury retrograde!

Mercury retrogrades have a bad reputation. “Here we go again,” I hear you say…  “Brace yourself for another period of messed up communication, misplaced emails and delayed flights.” Well perhaps we need to take another look… Astrologer Andrew Smith, who writes for the Cosmic Intelligence Agency, has [read more...]

Mars in Pisces: the warrior attempts to meditate

Mars in Pisces is not a combination that works easily together. Imagine that on his adventures Hercules met a monk who told him all his problems would be solved if he just sat down under a tree and meditated. Being open to any idea that might help him get ahead Hercules decides to give it a try. He sits down as he’s told and begins [read more...]

Saturn in Sagittarius: time to grow up

Some people tremble when they hear the word Saturn. This is because Saturn won’t allow us to shirk our responsibilities.

In fact if we’re open Saturn brings many gifts, keeping us on track and helping [read more...]
