Frida’s Forge

Frida Kahlo is well known as a trailblazing artist. She was, for example, the first Mexican artist to have a painting displayed in the Louvre. But her passion for painting was discovered almost by accident. Well, literally because of an accident, that nearly killed her. In 1922, a bus she...

Hephaistos through the Signs

Throughout these delineations I’ve been careful to not over-assign roles in the relationship dynamic that typifies Hephasitos in the chart. But generally speaking, in the context of Hephaistos as a kind of minor chord of Chiron, it’s entirely likely that you will take on what might be termed the “lacking”...

Hephaistos, the Misfit Archetype

According to Carl Jung, marriage is prone to archetypal dysfunction. The myths are but representations of experience learned ten thousand times over and more through all of history and humankind, and these patterns are accessible to each of us through humanity’s collective unconscious. They are like old comfortable clothes that...

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...

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...

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...

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....

On Writing

Hello friends, I am endeavouring to write more often on here. I feel safe just talking with you here because we are sympatico in our little journey of trying to understand the esoteric mechanics of the universe. So, astroesotericists, instead of astrophysicists. So, what I write in these posts is...

The Shadow part I: the Conundrum of the Luminaries

The Shadow is the collection of unresolved, unrecognised and unreconciled facets of personality. It is accepted that integrating the Shadow into one's consciousness can have enormous creative and healing benefits, but this unexamined self is difficult to apprehend, for precisely the reason that it is hidden from consciousness, and when...

Mensa Munda

We have thought about the idea of a solar persona a few weeks ago and followed the marvellous story of the Rising Sun/Son of the Montmartre, Maurice Utrillo. We learned in that fascinating history how he had grown up with uncertain paternity, and we posited the view that the solar...

Saturn-Pluto and Me

Hello, As you will perhaps see I have altered the subscription levels to make them very much more simple. In part this is because it has got to be a bit tedious for you to have to choose between all these options and I really don't enjoy closing my work off from you. I have... Continue Reading →

Pluto and the Riddle of Gold

One of the fundamental challenges of our lives is that we are habituated to living in existential dread. That is to say that we are all, to one extent or another, aware of the blissful consequence of living in the moment, and every one of us, at some time or...

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 Story of Vesta: pt. I

Fire is essential to human life. Water is too, and earth to build all things material, and air to breathe. Of all of these though, fire is the most ephemeral, because we might live without it. But we cannot live well without it. In earlier times, when fearsome beasts roamed...

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...

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 Astrology of Healing

Feature image: A Visit to Aesculapius 1880 Sir Edward Poynter 1836-1919 Aesculapius is identified by the snake curled around a staff. In a scene taken from a poem by the Elizabethan Thomas Watson, Poynter shows him being consulted by Venus who has a thorn in her foot. Venus is identified by the doves, which are...
