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, ...

Second full Moon in Aquarius

We are one day before the full Moon, how are you all feeling? The last new Moon, on August 8, was forming a square to Uranus, a destabilising aspect reflecting much disruption and sudden changes for this lunation. Tomorrow's full Moon is the second one in Aquarius this month. The first took ...

Musings on the IC, home and heart.

I received an invitation from the AFAN to give an astrology masterclass in February. I was thrilled to receive it, as even though this moment feels very ungrounded to me (I guess for the last 7 years?!), I am still progressing in my work. Astrology is definitely one of my passions in life. As I ...

Uranian new moon in Leo today

As Saturn made its way back into my 3rd house again recently, I have been feeling this strong urge to express myself through writing. I also realised, once more, how much I actually love words and playing around with them. Today is the new moon in Leo, with a waning square to Uranus in Taurus. ...

Decisions, decisions: some food for thought

This post is born from a mixture of different insights I've had in the last couple of weeks. One of the things I have been thinking about is the importance of making choices as part of the process of maturation. Then again, how can I talk about maturation without thinking of Saturn? Impossible. ...

A little on the current Saturn-Uranus square

Finally I am coming here to publish my first post since I got my new website. Excitement! Transiting Saturn square Uranus keeps doing its thing to my MC-IC (plus my natal Saturn) and I can really see the need for coming out into the world in a more authentic and creative way. What is my social r ...

On the nature of astrology

Here is a little post with some reflections on why I do not think astrology is a science (as science is generally understood in our society). I've been reading a lot of material in preparation for my dissertation's proposal and I wanted to share some ideas from one in particular, a PHD thesis en ...

Full Moon in Scorpio, my favourite…

I wanted to write something quickly on the coming full moon in Scorpio happening this Tuesday. Usually I find that full moons in Scorpio reflect a powerful time of release, of becoming more painfully aware of our unhealthy attachments and, hopefully, willing to let them go. And this one is not ...
