I am going through a dreadful upheaval just now so I am having to defer today's post until the weekend at the earliest, maybe till Tuesday, I simply haven't got the mental fortitude to write it out today. However, if you want to read some incredible astrology, go and see my true friend Deirdre, she... Continue Reading →
A Medical Astrology Primer
Here then is my first foray into writing out a primer for the practise of the medical astrology. I shall begin with making a few key observations. I think one of the fundamentals has to do with interrelatedness in very much the same vein as any astrology; the aspects create a relationship between principles as... Continue Reading →
Medical Astrology and the Cascade Effect
Medical astrology is a vast and complex study and it would take a lifetime of work to become truly proficient in just this one area of specialisation. I personally claim no great expertise although invariably, if presented with a symptom it is often quite clear in the astrology how that condition has come to manifest.... Continue Reading →
Chiron @ Seduction Central
The excellent Jeff over at Seduction Central asked me recently to contribute an article, so please go there to read since it was published there today.
Hygeia, the Virgoan Principle?
In about 400BC, a Sicyonian poet named Ariphron composed a paean to Hygeia, underlining the profound importance - to the Greeks - of this deity, an importance on a scale which is not remotely mirrored by the astrologer of today: Hygeia, best of the Blessed Ones to men, May I dwell with you for the...

The Chiron-Pluto contact: all the world’s pain
Today I wish to look in some detail at the two greatest Americans that ever lived. Of course, I make no objective claim on these personages' behalves, only one that, for my own part, rings profoundly true. I would happily include a close run third placing for that most gently predisposed of Presidents (Jed Bartlett... Continue Reading →
Outer planet transits: Christmas or crisis?

Even an arc or progression is simply a transit writ large on the life story and the transit itself, regardless of magnitude, is simply an opportunity to experience an ongoing evolution of nativity. Put another way, a transit is only an opportunity for experience, one that you weren't born with,... Continue Reading →
A beating heart of flame consumes the wastes, Rolling lambent and lithe, waxing and waning, 'Cross moonless halls these cold shades lament The promise of new life; this unbound spirit In crevasses of cracking crystal, Sibilant waves of glass break, roaring with dread, Yet bright as Paladin's faith; this tread Into arms of light. Crushing... Continue Reading →
Fundamentals of astrology: the polarity
Today, I wish to explore a little of the terrain of that counterpart to the astrologer's insight: the Jungian view of the soul. It is no coincidence that Jung's theoretical premises of psychoanalysis form such a supportive and compatible adjunct to the astrology, because Jung himself was a believer in the totality of symbolic experience....

Applied astrology: the Neptune Pluto contact
This weekend I conducted an experiment. It involved a trip to the outer reaches of our solar system and I travelled there in my car (a VolksWagen) and it makes a wonderful illustration of how astrology in the sky can connect so seamlessly with the small mechanics of our lives. One of the key understandings... Continue Reading →
