The Academy of Chiron

Welcome to the Academy of Chiron, a learning institution founded on principles that at first, second and fortieth glance seem fuqing ridiculous. You want me to sign up to deeply revisit all the very worst shit that ever happened to me or that *gasp* I did? Righto. How bout no. Enter the shadow’s shadow. The…

Astrofuquery Alert: Mars Chiron

For the next few days Mars and Chiron dance again in a capoeira style face off at the tail end of Pisces. All too soon Chiron will be joining the Aries party, having ideally prepared us for the ram’s playing field by drowning us in our unresolved merde for eight years. Bless. It was back…

Retrograde Brakes On

If you have been fairly choking on the constant change of the last little while or longer, a cosmic let off is here. Ish. Since the beginning of the year we have had all planets in direct motion. For over nine weeks, through three full moons and two eclipses, nary a backward step was taken…

The Charge into Aries

Certainly harsh words will be going cheap as Mercury breaks the watery stranglehold and charges into Aries in a few short hours time. A boon for bombastic manchildren in large white buildings everywhere *snore* Mercury’s move into Aries is the early warning bell for his impending retrograde. Of course it is not all ruthless outbursts…

Deep Rinse

If Eclipsia was the agitation cycle and Pisces season was rinse and spin then we can consider the Sun Neptune conjunction of the next few days the deep rinse yet required. Just add Chiron in eye wateringly close proximity to ensure that those old wounds with the tops freshly knocked off ’em get the flushing…

Full Moon Hangover

Welcome one, welcome all to the full moon hangover. How did that do nothing / say nothing / keep to yourself thing work out for you? Yeah. Me too, darklings. It is insanely difficult to simply keep thy own counsel when there are other people still populating our home bases and work spaces, fairly peppered…

Astrofuquery : Full Moon Fever

Astrofuquery Alert (or when full moons go bad). Further to my last post exhorting us all to do nothing under this lunar peak may I introduce today’s cautionary tale. This is an all too close up of a sitting member of the Australian parliament not taking a pointed question in her stride yesterday whilst doing a…
