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...

Seven Habits for the Saturn – Pluto Year

If you read my last piece then we will both agree, it had a bleak tone. That is natural astrology, or astrology unvarnished, which is different from new age astrology. Part of the conundrum of the evolutionary ideals of contemporary stellar mechanics is that it must, in some quarters at least, always have a positive... Continue Reading →

Musings on Saturn-Pluto

The arc of Pluto, as I have discussed many times before now, is always toward unknowing. Like anything shut away from air and light for too long, it might turn, and become a blight that slowly poisons the host from deep within. For this reason, the darkness of Pluto’s domain must be broached to allow... Continue Reading →

The Retreating Sea of Faith

And we are here as on a darkling plain, Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,Where ignorant armies clash by night. From Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold. The closing lines of Arnold’s masterpiece remind us that, no matter our own propensity for thoughtful introspection, we nonetheless, like the peaceful denizens of a placid shore,...

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 →

November 2012’s Solar Eclipse

  I have given it some thought and I have determined that it might be useful to say a few words about the current Solar Eclipse at (close to) 22 Scorpio. Of course you can read plenty of commentary on this from various astrologers who will all tell you that this eclipse will signify a... Continue Reading →

Three Dimensional Astrology: Part 4

This is the final instalment of my series on spiritual astrology, discussing in some depth the midlife transits, the Pluto and Neptune squares, and the Uranus half-return, among others. Thanks to everyone for their support and encouragement; I aim to record material on new topics later in the year, I am under some pressure to... 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....

The War of Earth and Sky

Saturn's opposition to Uranus reaches its excruciating zenith any moment now and I for one will be delighted to have the tension past its peak: like an overtightened violin string, it is sounding more than a few screechy notes in life's orchestra. Despite the inherent discomfort of this transit though, it can be leveraged, both... Continue Reading →

A Greek Tragedy

There is something profoundly apocalyptic in tone when the cradle of Western culture experiences the first paroxysms of economic collapse; a short foray into the astrology of the national map of Greece is therefore potentially illuminating. This will not be an exhaustive study, however, the Cardinal transits which we are currently experiencing are fraught with... Continue Reading →

The Power of the Witness

  Today I would like to focus on an issue highlighted by several comments and questions that I have received on this journal and by email.  Here are two example questions which illustrate the broad principle I should like to expand upon: Jacque asks in response to Advanced Vulcanology: aspects of Pluto: "I have Sun...

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...

Pluto tee-square: Secrets Revealed

Another of the intriguing possibilities of the upcoming tee-square is that of "secrets revealed." This is already under way, and within the next few months I believe that conspiracy theorists (itself a pejorative label designed to discredit an idea before it has a chance to be examined without prejudice) will have, not so much a...

Pluto tee-square: move to defcon 3!

Later on today, I will be posting an extensive article, primarily about Mercury and Saturn, but before that happens, I have been extremely intrigued by the sheer number of astrological pointers that are cropping up in the news just now that specifically reference the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto tee-square across the cardinal points. Bill Clinton is undergoing heart... Continue Reading →

Feeling blueprints…

Transit theory. Actually, let's talk for a minute about building a house. Let us say, for the sake of argument that you decide that you want to build your dream home. You probably have some vague ideas about how it will look, about the various features and styles of decor, about the layout. You're quite... Continue Reading →
