Mercury Cazimi : See The Light

The rather brilliant thing about tuning in to the music of the spheres is that they have distinct paths, behaviours and meaning. You can chart your life by it and rest safe in aeons of acquired knowledge. Any Mercury retrograde has three distinct phases. The first week or so is the kind of astrofuquery designed…

Astro : Mars into Scorpio

Last weekend Mars zoomed from Libra into Scorpio after way too long in the vascillating wilderness. In Libra, Mars was hamstrung as diplomacy and conciliation challenged his very nature. Mars said good day sir last Saturday and gleefully returned to a favoured home state, his fire and chutzpah blending seamlessly with the Scorpion’s trademark intensity….

Mercury Retrograde Intention Setting

It is hilarious irony but I like setting an intention for Mercury’s retrograde. Yes.

I am finding it very hard to concentrate as this deliciously skittish energy gilds the edges of everything. Even before Lady Luna’s…

One Last Mercury Retrograde

If you have had one of those infuriating weeks where things just didn’t line up, well may you waggle your finger at Mercury stationing to turn retrograde. And now that Uncle Merc has officially started backing the truck up you can go on to officially blame him for everything else that goes awry, astray or…

Astrofuquery : Mars Up Uranus

If you have been simmering to the point of eruption about someone, something, anything, today could well be the day you blow your top. You can thank our cosmic agitator Mars and his bingle with changemaker Uranus for the tipping point, as these two heavy hitters oppose each other to shake up the status quo….
