Degrees of Separation

Today I want to teach a very simple astrological technique which I have developed over the years, which I hope will precipitate many fascinating insights. It is a technique that I use all the time because without fail it provides clarity to important life transitions and is so very easy to use. In truth it is a kind of rough and ready system of employing Solar Arc directions, which are invariably powerful and very little employed. The good news is that they are extremely accessible and straightforward, even for a fairly inexperienced student to perform. Now, the reason this method...

Aspects in Balance

Here is another perspective too on the nature of Jupiter and Saturn, and the received wisdom about those planets. Specifically, it allows us to reframe the simplistic idea that Jupiter is good, and Saturn is bad. It is better to say that Jupiter is easy, and Saturn is hard. But as we all know, a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor, and it is commonly held by almost everyone, that while they did not choose the great hardships and challenges of their lives, they would invariably not choose after the fact, to have not lived through them. Often, the...

The Other Side of Paradise

If it is true to say that there are, in an esoteric, but nonetheless verifiable manner, no ‘easy’ aspects, then this ought to be simply demonstrable; let us find a chart which evinces no hard aspects, and gaze agog at the cosmic realisation that perhaps we have been looking at the entire puzzle of the nativity from a flawed perspective; that rather than seeing things in a binary manner, as in good versus bad, what we are instead witnessing are stylistically differing itineraries leading to a common destination. To digress for an instant: in spiritual terms we are all engaged...

Ikigai and the Earth Houses

Searching for Ikigai is a life’s work for many people, and that’s even before they get started on the actual task that has been found to be ‘the one’. It is little surprise therefore that it is one of the areas for study in which I am most frequently consulted in my work.

On Shame

Many years ago I knew a man who went by the name of Pete Woolly-Hat. I have no clue as to his birth name, but he was so known because he wore a woolly-hat wherever he went, rain or shine, winter or summer. He was a musician and probably (at that time) in his thirties,... Continue Reading →

The Problem with Mars

In a life without trines, everything is hard work. Is that how it should be? I wanted to read my book but that feels like slacking. "Self-improvement is work too!" I hear myself cry, but it won't change my inner perspective. I find myself looking forward to waiting rooms because at least then I won't... Continue Reading →
