Mirror Mirror : Full Moon in Aries

Mirror mirror on the moon Are you still singing the same old tune? Our first full moon post eclipsia – that merry transformative rollercoaster that tipped our worlds on their pretty heads from July through August – is almost here. Cue maximum lunar agitation, Aries style for dramatic effect. Amped by the not insignificant impact…

Dear Saturn

Dear Saturn, You bastard. It occurred to me that a pertinent ritual to perform at the time of Saturn’s motion direct would be to write a letter to old Father Time. The first draft (above) was a little less eloquent than I had in mind but it has been an eye rolling week indeed as…

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….

Myths are the origin stories that form the basis of all the other ology’s built upon them, particularly astrology. You want source material? Bury thyself in…

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…

Third Quarter Tangent

All too often the first and third quarter moons present us with Crisis and/or Drama *snore*. Hands up who hasn’t had a gutful of it already during saison du scorp. These quarter moon stumbling blocks are cosmic sandpaper designed to buff our new and full moon intentions to a higher shine sans the nicks, traps…

Saturn and Chiron Take Halloween

Realising he had a PR problem with his hard work / no short cuts message, Uncle Saturn took his local Hallowe’en party by storm when he arrived as Britney, werking and twerking the room. To his horror he realised that if he had put on a pair of hotpants and a questionable backing track earlier,…
