New Moon Eclipse musings

Happy new moon solar eclipse! I have wanted to come here and write a blog post for a while now, but have been so busy that it was almost impossible. I'm all packed and ready to go again. London still feels like home, but the world is calling me. Next destination: Athens. Let the digita ...

Transiting Nodes part 2

And here comes the lunar nodes again! Over the years I have noticed a great interest in one of my blog posts called 'Transiting Nodes' , I just recently re-read and (apart from some typos :/ which my Virgo planets couldn't help but notice) it dawned on me that here I am going through another int ...

Pisces all around: Inspiration and Creation

Today transiting Sun is very close to Jupiter at 15 degrees in Pisces. After this week's new moon in Pisces, the general vibe seems to be very hopeful and dreamy. (I also just realised that my progressed moon has moved to Pisces about a week ago!) Yes, as I have already spoken about it lots of ...

Last Full Moon in Leo, the IC, insights, and novelty.

Last week there was a full moon in Leo, square the nodes, and it only dawned on me now that it was opposing my progressed Moon in Aquarius. I have been keeping super busy, trying new mediums and ways to channel creativity and fill my days with astrology work. It has been truly exciting but it's ...

Jupiter, Mars in Capricorn and professional developments

This post is really meant to be a short one. With the current energy of Mars moving to Capricorn (as well as my progressed Ascendant just on the edge of that very same shift - from Sagittarius to Capricorn), I felt the urge to use my creative energy more wisely and productively. To harness and ...

Mercurial Wanderings under Venus Retrograde…

Venus has turned retrograde with the last full moon in Gemini and has been hovering around Pluto for quite some time now and this post is a reflexive product of it somehow. As usual a mix of personal experience and food for thought which I hope you might find useful, or inspiring, or at least enter ...

Rules with no absolutes

I thought that with the approaching retrogradation of Venus (December 19, the same day of the full moon), I could write a little about planetary dignities and relationships. As usual, I can't help but observe astrology playing out through my life and perspective. In fact, one of the things that ...

Get ready for Venus retrograde in 2 months!

Astrology is such a wonderful tool for observing cycles - cycles within cycles within cycles...it seems to me that that’s what life is made of.  We can investigate any of the planetary movements and brainstorm what it might mean collectively or personally as you place it in the context of y ...

Quick Full Moon Insights

In two days we will be having the full moon in Pisces and I'd like to write a few words about it. One of the things that I like about lunar cycles is exactly that - it's cyclic motion. Just like the seasons, when autumn begins and we reach out for our warmer coats or fluffier blankets, we could ...

Quick catch up and Composite charts

I am sitting at my new desk now and, although tired, feels great. Since I came back from my (extended) time spent in Brazil I have been leading a nomadic life, again. The difference this time though, reflected by my solar arc ascendant (plus progressed Mars) shifting from Sag to Capricorn, ...
