Saturn City Limits

Saturn at the station as he approaches the completion of his work in the Saggilands to head for his home state of Capricornia and the screws are tightening. Never one to leave loose ends or unfinished business, Saturn’s final hurrah only underlines the job of his three year long soujourn in Sagg. One of the…

Me Too

For those not living in Australia the #metoo ripple has finally hit our pond thanks to the spectacular journalism of Tracey Spicer, who has long fought the battle for equality. One of our “national treasures” (we also place meat pies in this category) a powerful media man who became a superstar TV gardener couldn’t even keep his…

Quarter Moon Groundhog Day

If you look up tonight you will see a perfect quarter moon. If you peer around your life, you may well see a disquieting repeat of something that causes you to feel the crisis point said to accompany the quarter moon. And if it is not news and you have seen both before – many,…

Thanksgiving Chiron

Although it is nothing like Thanksgiving where I live, for many I am connected to in the online world this is one of those compulsory weekends full of big old triggers. The niggle that we are supposed to be grateful for and the lesson we can be oh so thankful for. Blessed again. I don’t…

Astro : Neptune Direct-ish

While we were sleeping Neptune slipped out of his annual-ish six month retrograde and resumed regular programming (see above, best imagined by a surrealist). So may we again switch from the godawful reality of real life – harsh truths, inconvenient imperatives, nuts, bolts – to the enchanted strata of the dreamscape. Neptune in retrograde rips…

The sun king has just blazed into Sagittarius and lo, the season of fire begins.

Now we feel the galvanising pull of…

Astrofuquery : Mars Pluto

When the moon is nicely new, we still remain in the dark. We can embrace the lift of fresh energy but it is still dark matter, a crucible for creation that can set the tone for what may come. The Mars Pluto smackdown upstairs can be a volatile changemaker with the potential for outburst and…

New Moon in Scorpio : Rebirth

After what has been a brutal, cathartic and nothing if not enlightening dance through the shadowlands, Scorpio season is drawing to a close culminating in our rebirth with the new moon. A messy business it has been, forcing examination of our relationship to power and the seamier side of its expression. But despite the dire…

Dark Moon Ritual

“Nothing like a good ritualistic burning for letting it go and getting on with the magic. Visit Bohomofo for all your ritual burning, fear purging needs.” Thanks Ronnie, correct you are (and now too soaring towards the Scorpio new moon tomorrow! Huzzah lady!) As any witch worth her salt will tell you, the deepest dark…

Neptunian Dreamweaving

Neptune has now stepped on to the floor for Venus’ dizzying dance through Scorpio. He brings his shamanic A game to this often unholy two step, using the dreamscape and our inner vision to help us bridge any divide. Whenever Neptune is active above us, the door below to our unconscious is kicked down. You…
