The energy of the coming month is hard to pin down. Just when we feel we've ‘got' what's needed and know how to proceed it will slip through our fingers and we'll be left wondering what just happened. Certainty is in short supply. If we want a clear cut, straightforward path ahead with big shiny signposts pointing ‘THIS WAY' we'll most likely be disappointed. If
As I write these words Pluto is opposing the Black Sun, the point at which the Sun is furthest from the Earth and its illuminating power is therefore at its weakest. This opposition defies all egoic attempts to be in control, to dictate progress, direction, outcome or reward, plunging us into a deep process of powerlessness which eventually reveals the true nature of power. It de
This passage of Mercury retrograde begins by highlighting the unpredictable nature of communication - no matter how adept at it we believe ourselves to be! As it progresses it then shifts our attention to detaching from the outcomes of our communication and accepting that once ‘out there', what it becomes is rarely in our hands. It's easy and natural to feel that we in s
Today's New Moon offers creativity of thought and an opportunity to view a familiar scenario from a new perspective. If an area of life, or just life itself, is feeling stale and in need of refreshment, this Moon offers the prospect of new understanding which can help shift us through blocks and obstacles created by our habitually pursuing the same old thoughts down the same old ruts.
As the point of opportunity at which we can experience all that we are in our authentic entirety, the Black Sun demands that we embrace both that with which we choose to identify and that which we would prefer to ignore! There are varying degrees of this process, and the exploration of the recesses and outskirts of our consciousness requires that no stone be left unturned.
This weekend the voices of the ancients echo through time and space to reach us. They are always here, of course, whispering to us through their teachings, collective legacies and our cellular memories, but as Uranus shifts degree we begin a month of greater receptivity to what they have to share. Their wisdom may come to us through words, sensations, memories or just a plain old re
This Full Moon could go either way. We may find ourselves mysteriously free of the troubles which have burdened us in recent weeks or increasingly weighed down by them. We may finally see their insignificance in the context of the vast universe or be unable to see around them in the context of our personal lives. This is a Moon of extremes and therefore of extre
This weekend we see the formation of a heavenly influence which remains with us until the second week of April: A triangle formed by Jupiter, Chiron and Pluto, through which we encounter the need to nurture a healthy ego whilst recognising the potential to be indulging an unhealthy one without even realising.
There is much talk of ego in many spiritual teachings an
This week the asteroid Juno conjuncts Neptune, forming a Grand Trine in Water with the North Node and Black Moon Lilith. Here we see reflected the fragility and transience of human life contrasted with the enduring quality of the Divine. We human-beings all too easily assume our continuation from day to day, and in that assumption live all manner of complacencies and excuses. T
The heavens today reflect issues of significance throughout the coming year: the presence of both challenge and peace, safety and risk, stagnation and movement - apparently contradictory forces present in the same moment, applying equal pressure upon the fabric of our lives.
Today a Grand Cross connecting some of the most formidable powers in the cosmos - Pluto, Mars, Uranus, the B
