Those that thrive are those who make the most of the [read more...]

Occurring at 15 degrees of Sagittarius, you will feel this eclipse if you have natal [read more...]

Saturn in Aquarius: activists and visionaries, get organised!

On 17 December 2020 Saturn moved into the sign of Aquarius for the second time, after retrograding back into Capricorn at the beginning of July.

Full Moon in Virgo: a moment of clarity

The next Full Moon arriving on March 9 (5:47 PM UTC), at 19°37 of Virgo, brings a dose of practical magic to pierce the veil of the recent Mercury Retrograde cycle, which will be coming to an end hours after the Full Moon itself: considering the state of alert and (legitimate) health concerns that are taking hold in many parts of the [read more...]

What is the purpose of Pluto transits and why are they so damn hard?

Pluto moves really slowly, taking 248 years to orbit the Sun. Because of this many people will only experience a few personal Pluto transits in their lifetime. By personal I mean when Pluto moves into a position where it creates an aspect to one of your natal planets or points. For example, Pluto at 18 degrees Cancer forms a square to [read more...]

Black Moon Lilith: a deeper look at Lilith in astrology

Well it’s finally upon us. The long-awaited, much discussed and often over dramatised alignment of Saturn and Pluto in the sign of Capricorn.

Full Moon in Gemini: shape-shifting

To me, it seems oddly relevant that the last Full Moon of both the year 2019 and the decade will occur in the dual, mutable, feathery sign of Gemini — at 19°51, on December 12, 05:12 AM UTC. Mutable signs are the signs that cap off each season and prepare us for the next: they are known for their adaptable spirit and shape-shifting [read more...]

Almost 500 properties have been destroyed and at its worst, at the beginning of [read more...]

Mars square Saturn: Resistance is futile, surrender to limits

On 13 January Mars squares Saturn for the third and final time in this six month cycle. The sensation of pushing an elephant up a hill, of trying to overcome an insurmountable obstacle, of working against yourself, will soon be over.
