Thirty years ago, as a novice astrologer doing her first hundred readings with actual people, I grew to love and trust the birth Moon phase. Its imprint was so deep, most people immediately resonated. Some say your Moon phase describes your purpose in life. But I find purpose more elegantly stated by the Sun and […]
Outstanding for many reasons--the coming Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius portends the dawn of a new day. Although the official start of the Aquarian Age has been linked with numerous celestial events--this surely stands among them. Don't miss this spectacular sky show. You can watch this super close conjunction perfect through the end of the year.
The anger of Mars retrograde is different from Venus’ fury. Hers is deep and transformative; it collects for months underneath her veneer of acquiescence. Venus is meant during her retrograde to come out fighting. But Mars’ anger has no such deep meaning. His fire is a machine that’s stuck in the “on” position. It’s easily petty and superficial. How do you master it?
We watched as a mile away—near my street—thick black smoke started billowing towards us. A cop drove by and said, "You’ll want to be leaving soon." The winds kept blowing. There was a constant sound of pops and explosions; we figured, propane tanks and cars blowing up. There was a bright crackling sound too; we figured it was trees.
Planets don’t really travel backwards. Retrogrades are actually illusions—from our vantage on earth. My policy is to use astrology & myth to design the best possible illusions. And while life events can indeed fulfill the calamities predicted—these won’t occur for everyone. Here's how to make this time a positive experience.
In my experience, it’s this moment—Venus emerging as Morning Star--that's even more significant than her direct station. That's how it was for the Mesopotamians too. Emperor Sargon took his cues from heaven. The appearance of the Morning Star was the sign to launch his armies. What have you been emboldened to achieve?
After I post a ritual, I’ll sometimes receive a comment or email with this message: “I did it, but nothing happened.” When that's your experience, it just means that you didn’t sufficiently interest the gods! A ritual is a pas-de-deux—it’s a dance with a nonhuman form of energy. Your sincere attention is attractive.
This new spirit around the planet is breath-taking. Whether or not one thinks this is god-driven, it’s worth our awe. And reverence. 2020 is a spectacular year astrologically. It brings a convergence of powerful aspects between three masculine lords, suggesting deep structural changes. But this moment--it's all about the Great Goddess.
Not every Venus retro conjunction is as crazy as the Venus retro of 2020. The fire that erupts each time will vary with the kindling of the prior months. This transit works as a revealer—it exposes what’s been ignored, denied, or swept under the rug too long. The pattern is archetypally similar yet statistically different each time. Gods are creative and so are we.
World grief is rising. If you’re a sensitive, you need a strategy. Not just because emotions like viruses are contagious and you should protect yourself. More to the point—this is why you’re here. The world needs its sensitives now—for the same reason it’s needed Moon devotees throughout the millennia—to bring compassion, wisdom and balance to an out-of-bounds world.
Venus is fierce, kind, wild, knowing, and creative—full of desires and contradictions. She bears little resemblance to the caged go-go dancers in astrology cookbooks. When the sacred is stripped from astrology, the gods are reduced to human personality traits. How can we find what's divine in there? If you can't relate to your Venus sign, I wrote this post for you.
This is a magical time. Like fevered dreamers, we enter the space of an ancient trance. How can you use best this magic? You may not have a choice. During the pre-retrograde shadow (where we are now), you may become obsessed or inflamed about some Venus matter. High emotion is a clue the Goddess is involved.
The Hindenburg explodes and the Twin Towers fall within orb of the J/P opposition. “Explosion” is the energy signature of Jupiter & Pluto. How do you put this power to work? The same way the first astrologers did it, with a ritual of sympathetic magic. Here's how to do this for yourself.
Seven of the top ten deadliest pandemics in human history erupted during Jupiter/Pluto transits—just like the conjunction that peaks this year in April, June, and November.Jupiter and Pluto were conjunct during the outbreak of the Spanish Flu in 1918. Bubonic plague ravaged Europe, Africa, and Asia from the J/P conjunction of 1347 to their opposition in 1353. In modern times, the Lord of death and shadows (Pluto) has joined forces with the God of growth and expansion (Jupiter) during our five most recent pandemics.
That there are five stages to grief is well known. Grief supposedly goes from denial to anger to bargaining to depression and finally to acceptance. However—these are just the stages that the mind goes through. They have nothing to do with the true journeying of your feelings. Depression is never the signal that you’re nearly done with emotional processing. Rather, it suggests you haven’t begun!
In the old myths the gods would sometimes descend to earth, disguise themselves, and masquerade as human. Something like this happens with the planets on our Ascendant if we have any. We become their emissaries. We embody their spirit with our form. Channeling such power can overwhelm and confuse not only us, but those around is. It can also empower us to become "larger than life." Through our personas, the gods get to walk around in the world.
It’s not fair. Some sky neighborhoods are more advantaged than others. Planets from these lush zones are born into comfortable nurseries. The roads to their success are generally smooth. The sky holds stark neighborhoods too. Planets born in these zones face more challenges. The roads are rough, often unpaved.
While studying Tara’s charts, I noticed some difficult Mars patterns in her transits and progressions. What I knew of her before our session was that she was looking for a better job, and her mother had died some months earlier, about which she was understandably still feeling depressed. Halfway into her reading, I asked, “Are […]
