New Moon in Capricornia

The new moon reset in Capricornia is no longer just over the next hill. In fact this polished floor is crowded and ever ready for the dip and tip. The freshly minted moon joins her lover the Sun and Lady Venus all too briefly for this dance, before they move to the fertile thinking grounds…

Mergoat Musing

Although it is hard to go past stargazing to French torch songs or days of salt baths, the greatest medicine you can take in the dark moon is mythology. Myths are the origin stories that form the basis of all the other ology’s built upon them, particularly astrology. You want source material? Bury thyself in…

Dark Moon Dial In

Just phoning in from the depths of our first dark moon to see how you are doing. Remember that niggle and snark is Uranus (insert joke here / see yesterday’s post) agitating for change. Revolution right now. Your disquiet is a giant flashing arrow above your resistance. So there’s that. It is quite the challenge…

Uranian Wake Up Call

There’s been a niggle in the air the last few days, floating snark that I hadn’t quite been able to nail down. And then this dark moon weekend, rudely awakened more than once by forces outside myself, it has dawned on me with the exaction of a thousand alarm clocks. Ding ding 2018. Change is…

Dark Moon Vibes

Dark moon vibes this weekend as the lunar tide draws out. This cauldron space can be a deep pool to immerse thyself in, built on rest and regeneration. It can equally be a discomforting void if we struggle to slow or still in the face of a world constantly chanting hustle. So often our busy…

Not Before Times Up

Life changing moments don’t happen every day. We long for them and pray for them. Sometimes we don’t recognise them until hindsight kicks in and we can see clearly just how much and how far we were moved. We end up with a colourful clutch of them, having been gifted their unique medicine even if…

Venusian Cazimi : You Too

At the beginning of this week Venus conjoined the sun. This astrological magic is cazimi, a gorgeous Arabic word that means in the heart of, in this case, the sun. It is effectively a rebirth of planetary energy as our lady Venus takes her place in Capricornia between the sun king (our masculine principle) and…

Trumped Up Power

Elvira’s response says it all really as we wake to the self published fake news of the ‘stable genius’ whose grubby little fingers yet hold – however tenuously – the keys to the kingdom. Kinda reminds me of my favourite Margaret Thatcher quote. “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell…

Slow New Year

My year rarely takes a newly discernable shape or form in January simply because the calendar says so. The new year new me exhortations, the compulsory vision boarding and manic planning are up there with the singles / diet / detox ads that suddenly choke our world. They are about as useful as drunken midnight…
