The Great Gravy Train Robbery

Predicting the outcome of elections is hard. The British general election of two days ago has ushered in the most right-wing government Britain has ever seen. This bold conclusion is ably supported by the announcement today that Tommy Robinson, a far-right campaigner and member of various white supremacist organisations has become a paid-up member of the Conservative Party, but even without his ominous benediction, the worrying portents had long been evident. There are, for example, now only nominal policy differences between the current Conservative party and the once almost universally reviled National Front of the 1970s. In my view, the...

Communion with Hades

I am checking in after a little absence because it's remarkable how quickly time flies and how much work you can get done without even the slightest disturbance on the surface of life and it might seem that there is nothing going on, in the depths of one's personal tarn. You will note that I have included a photograph of a tarn at the beginning of this post so that we can all get into the same way of thinking. My guess would be that some people have a personal tarn, and for some it is more of a...

Hadean Planets and Spiritual Work

How do we work with Pluto, and his co-rulers of the Underworld, to emancipate ourselves from difficulty, and to do the spiritual work that is our life's purpose? I would argue that it is, like so many spiritual methodologies and paradigms, at once incredibly simple and most decidedly difficult, but that we all have the power to make simple choices that will curb the darker temptations of Pluto and lead us into the light. All we have to do is decide. This discussion will take up about 40 minutes of your time, and if you would prefer to download the...

Not Enough Pluto

Not enough Pluto. Yes, it really can happen, and it's potentially devastating. We have looked closely over the years at several cases where a person is born with a surfeit of Pluto energy. The principle is that to have sympathy with an energy does not always mean to have more of it, indeed, Pluto is subtle, deep and most of all hidden, so to have Pluto in positive, outgoing and extrovert signs, like Leo, Libra and Sagittarius is uncomfortable for Pluto, who enjoys Scorpio for precisely the reason that he can remain subtle, deep and hidden. The cautionary tales...

The Rising Sun of the Montmarte

As we have seen from our recent study of US President, Donald Trump, issues of paternity are of supreme import in understanding matters of identity. Identity is an ever-evolving and ever-elusive construct that has to be understood by the astrologer in order that they can help an individual refine and conceptualise their sense of self. It is arguable that there is no greater mission in all of astrology. Roman theatre masks. Carl Jung first devised the concept of a ‘persona’ as a psychological term of reference. Originally, it was a Latin word for an actor’s mask, which presented the...

Hadean Times: the Rise and Fall of Rolf.

The rise and rise of Rolf Harris was always somehow improbable, and though his fall has only just begun, it makes an excellent study of how easy it is to fall into the trap of misplaced self-belief. Many of my generation are reeling somewhat from the news that Rolf Harris, whose cheerful, positive and uplifting... Continue Reading →

The Astrology of Paul Walker’s Demise

Just recently there has been a rash of investigative astrology in relation to the untimely and unfortunate death of Paul Walker, an actor I'd not heard of, but my interest was piqued because of the comparisons made between Walker and the iconic James Dean. This prompted me to revisit Dean's grand travail, the impeccable exploration... Continue Reading →
