The Once Was Great Conjunction

Maybe it’s my Sun-Uranus, but I never seem to get in the same groove as other astrologers. It’s not that I am trying to find fault with the prevailing opinions. Or perhaps this is the Mercury reception Pluto speaking, but what is really going on, like underneath? I feel as though everyone is pointing at... Continue Reading →

Astrology Myths pt I.

Hello friends, So, while we are on the topic of misrepresenting astrology, let us look at my favourite (let us read that as least favourite) astrological myths. What seems especially odd is the way these ideas gain traction. But my feeling is that they seem like they should work, so people somehow like to propagate... Continue Reading →

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...

Making Sense of Makemake

When I was researching Orcus, I made a breakthrough after watching an interview with Stacey Keach where he talked about his "trilogy of wardens". What a great turn of phrase. As a Sun Gemini, closely conjunct Orcus, you would expect multiplicity or ‘many-ness’ to be a feature of his persona....

Vladimir Nabokov: No Rest for the Wicked?

Vladimir Nabokov was a sensitive and complex man. Highly intelligent and with an exotic past he was born into the Russian aristocracy before being forced, in fear of his life to flee his homeland in the 1917 revolution and spent his remaining years wandering the earth, never truly finding...

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 Law of Karma

Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat; the redeeming things are not happiness and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle. F. Scott Fitzgerald   Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Whilst we all tend towards disparaging...

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...

Final Thoughts on Planetary Ease

There are a few more observations that we can make in order to complete our study of the ancient and profoundly insightful principles of dignity and debility, after which I hope we can close the topic as a study focus and move on to other things. What we are trying...

Poor Reception: Our Fatal Flaw

One of the most fundamentally oversimplified concepts in astrology is that of mutual reception. It is a complex idea that is generally assigned a crude remit. That is to say, a simple reception confers benefit because each planet has access to it’s native domain. We all understand this. As a...
