Melancholia

Oh my darklings, especially those currently wading through the quicksand of deep despair, existential meltdown or with Saturn sitting on your chest like an anvil. This unholy ratcheting is hitting like a le creuset to the guts. Belting us during the final dark moon of a tumultuous eclipse season. This year has been a relentless…

Bed Thyself Down

So here we find ourselves darklings, post the eclipsia maelstrom with Merc mere moments out of retrograde and everything still kinda not there yet. In fact all the not quite there yet’s are lining up in front of us. Which means – whether we like it or not – a period yet worth pausing in…

The Dark Moon Underwater

The dark moon in Pisces before she emerges anew is a deep abyss in the cavernous ocean of the self. These are the closing moments of eclipsia, whose peculiar medicine has been as unsettling as it has been instructive. Holy mother of Neptune what a colossal catalyst she was. Here now we tread water in…

Dark Moon Vibes

Dark moon vibes this weekend as the lunar tide draws out. This cauldron space can be a deep pool to immerse thyself in, built on rest and regeneration. It can equally be a discomforting void if we struggle to slow or still in the face of a world constantly chanting hustle. So often our busy…

The Rudderless Space Between

I am very partial to the rudderless space between the Christmas end of busyness and the new year trampoline. Beyond being the only excusable period to constantly eat, drink and be merry, it is a liminal space in which we chew over our year. When it doesn’t have to be any more than mere musing,…

Elvira and the Dark Moon

Elvira is all over the dark moon. You don’t see her outside in gale force wind chasing birds that don’t want to be caught or pushing shit uphill. She knows this day is built on rest and integration. Eclipse season has been tough on her. It brought with it unexpected new developments, circumstances and characters….

Mercury Retrograde Side Effect

An interesting side effect of eclipse season that I have noticed as we tread the path between lunar and solar is the urge to purge. Suddenly there is no space in our heads or hearts (or on our desks and bedroom floors) for anything that harks back to a past life or a previous iteration…

Recovery

In a world that demands our constant achievement and expects us to be always on, in every sense, the sweet art of doing nothing is a revolutionary pursuit. We work more hours, thanks to our devices. We have less down time. The delineation that used to be there between work and the rest of our…

Rest Your Weary Head

Dancing with Pluto and Mars as we have been this past week is absolutely exhausting. Mars fires us up so we say more, do more, throw more, take more, move more. Pluto is our compulsory emotional colonic, hankering as he always is for us to trawl through our shit and get rid of anything (everything)…
