A Moving Moral Compass

Not all the side effects of eclipsia have been disastrous, if a little tough to choke down and even harder to digest. The natural result of so much trouble and strife has been a glorious honing and owning of our moral compass. It spins on our value system, the qualities and characteristics we hold dear…

Astro : Venus into Aquaria

Trumpets please (or at the very least the Dali equivalent) as the Capricorn party dissipates and gives way to the forward thinking airy daring realm of Aquaria. Our Lady Venus is first cab off the rank as she slips, right about now, into the water bearer’s mansion. Venus in Capricornia certainly showed us our limits….

Venusian Cazimi : You Too

At the beginning of this week Venus conjoined the sun. This astrological magic is cazimi, a gorgeous Arabic word that means in the heart of, in this case, the sun. It is effectively a rebirth of planetary energy as our lady Venus takes her place in Capricornia between the sun king (our masculine principle) 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.

Astrofuquery : Venus Pluto

This weekend’s mad maxing of our emotions is with a big thank you / fuq you to the Venus Pluto square. Captain Chaos in Capricornia has stepped up to chest bump our Lady Venus as she sits elevated in Libra, still casting her everloving gaze over our relationships. In astrological lore, this combo can indicate…

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 : Delta

Change is all about us with a fiery full moon on the rise. Yesterday Uncle Mars dragged his hot feet into Cancer, not his favourite place to plant them. This can really fire up our emotional body while simultaneously throwing a wet blanket over our passions and projects. Mercury moves into his home state of…
