A September Solid

Another week, another planetary heavy hitter stationing to turn direct as we trudge through the final days of a long and brutal eclipse season. Time and tides have irrevocably shifted us here through a portal we were powerless to refuse. There is no turning back now, no matter what we wish upon. There is much…

The Mercing: Cheat Sheet

In the spirit of Mercury retrograde, we’re going to do a quick revision on his masterful magic so that when he squares Saturn and Mars today we don’t all drop our bundles (again) or get booted hard in the nostalgias. We get Merc’d for three weeks four times a year. The stationing points that bookend…

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 new moon in Virgo means Lady Luna and her crown of stars joins our Lady Venus, her firecracker lover Mars and old Uncle Mercury and his fleet footed wisdom in the mansion of the virgin; here she is beholden to none other than herself…

Freddy Mercury Retrograde

Well, almost. Our fleet footed communicator has shimmied even further back into Leo, switching his retrograde motion yesterday from a fine eye for the details to a heart based revision. I do so love a neopolitan retrograde, where we are offered a couple of options, ways and means for the magic to unfold. Travelling backwards…

The Martians Are Here

Oh what a martian week it has been, our planetary agitator stirring the pot constantly from the watery depths of Cancer. If your week has devolved as Mars threw his weight around, you are not alone.

Liar, Liar

Mercury is the communicator in our chart and the way he is flavoured determines how he (or more precisely we) are expressed. Those that are highly Mercurial, who mainline the gift of the gab or simply read a lot are oft more comfortable expressing themselves and making their point of view understood. Do not for…
