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 ...

Another short praise to Saturn

As I prepare myself to go back to the UK I silently watch the build up of anxiety within. These sure are strange times that we are currently witnessing. One thing calls my attention as I watch the symbolism of my transits right now - I have transiting Saturn bang on my IC - and I think about ...

Saturn and Inner Wisdom

Ok, so this writing just happened to me. I was listening to music and having a cry when these words just started coming to me, so here they are. But before that, just an astrological note. I see my Saturn in Scorpio being reflected in the text below, and when I recently found out (or maybe ...

Jupiter (etc) on the IC

Today there was no thunderstorm. Instead, just a gentle rain, one of those still somehow illuminated by the sun, some kind of rainbow weather. As I watched it through my window, eating a piece of freshly cut watermelon I felt a warmth in my chest and smiled thinking to myself: 'I'm in Brazil ...

Aquarius and the solar principle

From the incredible quiet and self exploring vibes, which was also very melancholic at times, I now barely have time for checking in with myse ...

A note on astrology and responsibility

How did the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction go for you? I was checking my social media stuff today and had a thought that seemed to be fiercely expressed by Charles E. Carter when he claimed that it could be 'criminal to introduce astrology' to some, as he believed only 'people with moral courage sh ...

Saturn’s shift to Aquarius

In order to celebrate the last few days of Saturn in Capricorn I decided to come here and try to write something. The first thing that comes to mind is the idea that Saturn represents the principle of giving birth to ourselves. Becoming more solid as an individual requires a close relationship, ...

A little on midpoints

Astrology as a subject for research never ceases to amaze me. I have currently been looking into midpoints a bit more and what a fascinating topic. My Moon in Libra, ultra sensitive towards symmetry and beauty, really seems to love the idea of a midpoint being a place where integration can happ ...

Multiple views

Last Sunday was the third workshop I was giving in partnership with fellow astrologer Gillian Crawford on the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius happening this coming 21 of December. It was a real pleasure to prepare the classes as I really enjoy teaching. I love information and sharing it with ...
