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...

A Design for Life

A day or so ago, I was out running under that fabulous Cancer Moon, and I was listening to David Hawkins on my iPod. He is a remarkable spiritual teacher and one of the insights that he relayed struck me quite forcibly. In my life, I do not especially understand the consensus of reality. I... Continue Reading →

Révolution Tumultueuse…

An awful night. I slept very badly because of a series of anxious dreams about flooding. At one point I was in a pedestrian plaza that I did not recognise: there were tall buildings on either side and I had to run to reach a footbridge before a great swathe of dirty water reached me....

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 →

The Astrology of Breaking Down

Today’s article is a story. Not a made-up story, it’s a real-life story, a part of my own story, and it demonstrates, I believe, just how astonishingly powerful astrology is when you are open to its most fundamental principles, when you are fluent (and that’s a potent word in this context) in its language, and...

Venus in the 12th

Be with me, My prison-guard, whose smile the only light In this oubliette of mine; no darkness, Only a forgetting of what is bright, A rich smear, a Monet in my mind's eye, Of you, only you. And at last, With your glittering soul I shall hold still, With hands on hips and sweet Athena's... Continue Reading →

The Wisdom of Crocodiles

(A final reflection upon my now forever passed Neptune square: the 5th application began separating some 72 hours ago. It has been wholly enlightening, and at times profoundly disconcerting.) One of the most challenging scenarios in life is to find that you are no longer sure why you are here. On a very specific level,... Continue Reading →

The Chirotic journey continues…

This is a housekeeping post! I have determined to stop posting articles on Tuesdays for the forseeable future: I am currently writing a book based entirely on Chiron in the astrology. Whilst I very much enjoy writing my twice-weekly articles on this journal it is often extremely time-consuming and therefore, expediently I will post new... Continue Reading →

The Subjectivity Trap: a Disclaimer

In the past I have made a habit of writing articles based broadly upon the extant themes of my own life and experience, however, it appears that a number of third parties with whom I have no relationship whatever, nor have ever had any relationship, and indeed with whom I most fervently hope never to...
