The Martians Are Here

Oh what a martian week it has been, our planetary agitator stirring the pot constantly from the watery depths of Cancer. If your week has devolved as Mars threw his weight around, you are not alone. Although he is not blasting us from his strongest position, wading through the kind of ultra emo Cancerian muck…

Bird in Hand

Yesterday this beautiful bird flew into my house. For the day he didn’t’t seem to want to head out the way he came in. Singing as we were to each other, it became clear it was not for nothing. This is my point of difference. For me, it’s a sign: an inevitable arrow that I…

The Magic of Wollombi

Anyone who is connected to this place will tell you it is magic. Wollombi lies beneath this shimmering sea of cloud and is nestled in the junction of three national parks, whose waters all flow down into our brook.

Those that are highly Mercurial, who mainline the gift of the gab or simply read a lot are oft more comfortable expressing themselves and making their point of view understood. Do not for…

Chaos Theory

Chaos theory is a mathematical construct that strives to understand the unexplainable evolution of the natural world. It has a number of distinct features that we would do well to remember through the week incoming, as we descend into the cauldron space of the dark moon and the promise held in the solstice tipping point….

Neptune at the Station

Neptune at the station and all of this week’s sandpaper loving is enveloped in the haze. The blue planet, ruler of Pisces and dreamweaver extraordinaire, spends roughly half the year travelling backwards from our earthbound perspective and is shifting directions again today. Said to be the higher octave of our lady Venus, she is a…
