Pluto Direct

Pluto’s long retrograde in Capricorn ends today and it is the full stop that has us tremouring. As an outer planet, Pluto’s retrograde is longer and actually serves to underline his cosmic directive – in that scribbled with a pencil so hard you break the lead kind of way. Pluto turned retrograde on April 20…

Astrofuquery : Jupiter Uranus

Cue the eye rolling, as the cries of When Will It End! are drowned out by much snickering and simpering. On days / weeks like this, it gets you precisely nowhere. Time instead to channel your inner Babe Ruthless and align thyself to the mighty forces at play. Pourquoi? First careening cab off the rank…

Cheerleader Tryouts

Everybody needs a cheerleader of their own. Especially on the days when we find ourselves holding our own hand as we battle the monsters and motherfuqers about us. As I often bang on about to my beloved clients, we are spectacularly craptastic at being our own best friend. Consistently, our own best friend. First. Last….

Obscura

There is a species of moth called Obscura. They live deep in the Sumatran jungle and their superpower is invisibility. They utilise their distinct markings to at once dazzle and blend, protecting them from predators. As humans, obscurity does not offer the same generous benefits.

Elvira and the Dark Moon

Elvira is all over the dark moon. You don’t see her outside in gale force wind chasing birds that don’t want to be caught or pushing shit uphill. She knows this day is built on rest and integration. Eclipse season has been tough on her. It brought with it unexpected new developments, circumstances and characters….

Missing: Self Care

As many a woman on the brink knows all too well, there are very real consequences if we perpetually postpone looking after ourselves in favour of holding the universe together. Our unholy ability to push through despite exhaustion, illness, pain, despondency, resentment or far worse than that is a dubious superpower indeed. One that comes…

Venus in the Lion’s Lair

Our Lady Venus striding into Leo mid eclipse season was a handy boost to our north node’s field of dreams. Here she lives large, not playing small or trifling over her power to accommodate lesser egos. Her point of focus – that which we love and love to do – does not entertain her ghosts…
