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…

New Moon in Libra

The new moon in Libra is here though we may still slumber. As Scorpio season begins to cast shadows and the dark moon implored us to do less, so too may we wish to lie down and squeeze our eyes tightly shut to a world built on euphemism and control. Too late. The fat cats…

Virgin Territory : New Moon in Virgo

  We are approaching virgin territory in no uncertain terms. 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…

Venus in the Lion’s Lair

Our Lady Venus striding into Leo mid eclipse season was a handy boost to our north node’s field of dreams. Here she lives large, not playing small or trifling over her power to accommodate lesser egos. Her point of focus – that which we love and love to do – does not entertain her ghosts…

Astro : New Moon in Leo

The new moon in Leo nearly here as the darkest ebb reaches deep inside us, whispering to us to let go. To strip ourselves of any shiny accoutrement, acquired habit or repeating behaviour that is not of you, by you or for you. The new moon in Leo at the powerful zero point is on…

Season of the Lioness

Season of the Lioness is here, the curtain raiser to the eclipse rollercoaster and wild ride that has had August circled in blood / glitter since all our new year forecasts landed last January. Time now to dry the tears wrought and wrangled during our time in the Cancer mansion and begin to strut fiercely…

New Moon in Cancer : Umbilicus

Hot on the heels of the solstice mid week, the tipping point that marked the sun’s entry into Cancer, is the new moon in the sign of the mother. We are gifted with a supercharged opportunity to start afresh and to build on the work of the last super new moon in Taurus. NEW MOON…

Flip The Switch: New Moon in Gemini

Dark moon peaking and it feels already that the perfect antidote is the airy new moon in Gemini. This is quicksilver energy that invites, courts and cultivates change into our lives, encouraging us to get thinking and exercising those creative muscles that may have atrophied as we waded through the muck and mire of retrogrades and…

Ride The Lightning

This past weekend was certainly when the lightning was likely to strike, illuminating our worlds and lighting up all manner of possibility if we stayed willing (and most importantly able) to innovate. For nearly three days Uranus has been zapping us with bolt after blast of his stock-in-trade imperative: change. Our individual relationship to change…
