Anger as an Ally

Anger is a dirty word. Somewhere between political correctness and passive aggression, it was decreed that outright rage must be channelled. Reframed. Somehow remade into something less confronting and more palatable. Woman particularly, schooled not to make a fuss, are still shamed for the expression of our anger. Witness the disparity between how the sexes…

Saturn at the Station

Flotation device anyone? Saturn’s grinding change in direction signals more than heavy existential malaise or dour proof of life. No really, darklings. These are mere symptoms, crushing though they may feel, of a greater quest in the offing. Any planet paused at the station starts poking us harder to make quite sure we get it….

Mars Retrograde No More

Hot on the heels of that watershed full moon is the conclusion of Mars’ retrograde in mere hours from now. He has been hamstrung in reverse gear since the end of June but we have felt the effects – delays and frustration, a loss of fire or passion, disasters in battle, exasperation with Martian types…

Screaming Retrograde

Oh my frustrated little darklings, staring into the abyss and not feeling like now is quite right to jump. Correct you are. Tis not the time to leap nor snark nor spiral back into any previous pit o’ shit. The early days of our post eclipsia evolution are often fraught and unfamiliar, filled with crippling…

Retrograde as Cosmic Homework

In typical fashion, Uranus arrived this morn in his own sweet time to the retrograde party. He now joins more than half our solar system in reverse gear, a boon for all of us addled and overwrought by eclipsia. Yes truly. This mad season plants the seeds for your evolution – and yes too more…

The Masks Are Off

Astrofuquery warnings aside (or below, as the case may be) the thing about meatgrinder stars is that they are supremely revealing. Certainly you know more than you did at the start of this mad season, even if the awful truth has been delivered in a manner unbecoming. In much the same way a streak of…

Ritual to Cut Cords

All too often we still feel tethered to the energy of something or someone. Yet we know intuitively that it no longer serves us and that it is time to move on. Cord cutting rituals are a wonderful way to energetically sever a connection. Best performed as a meditation in ritual space, they remain a…

Three Days of Darkness :: Unforgiveness

That old chesnut. By its very nature, refusing to forgive hooks us to precisely the stuff we’re trying to overcome and then move far from. We cling resolutely to our anger – and the fight – because it feels like forgiving the transgression condones it and lets the perpetrator off lightly. Our very real desire…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Shame Game

As the second part of this series designed to prepare you for eclipse season by relinquishing another chunk of thy shadowy shit, today we peer at our shame. Oh the dark weed that takes root within us and demands we hide ourselves beneath it. Shame springs from where we have been marginalised, taunted or degraded…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Blame Game

The dark moon is the best time, every single month in a row, to clear the decks and make space for What Comes Next. And there is nothing that tethers us quite as effectively to the past than the blame game. Childish, pointless and disempowering in the extreme, blaming others for where you find yourself…
