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 was embarked upon collided with a car, and she was flung clear of the wreckage and impaled upon a metal handrail. She later claimed that the length of steel entered her flank and exited through her vagina, this was perhaps untrue. She also broke her collarbone, two ribs, her leg...

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...

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...

A Sea Change on the Horizon?

For many months now I have been watching the future. Inevitably this is a key concern of the astrologer, the Uranian, the Aquarian, the 11th house individual, but actually, this coming month there is an astrological event of staggering magnitude in the making. So far as I can work out, 27th of May will be... 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 Chirotic Awakening

Kerrie asked: "I’m wondering if you could give an example of a chirotic awakening?" I would say that it is a difficult process to accurately describe and it will certainly be accompanied by considerable projected difficulty. If you understand the phrase "as above so below" and apply that to your understanding of astrology, you will... Continue Reading →

Time: Synchronous or Chirotic?

Here's a short foray into the nature of time. I am no quantum physicist, but just like the rest of us, who aren't required to be qualified meteorologists to know that its raining, I've been having a few days where the synchronicities are just piling up. I am thinking a great deal about Chiron, most... Continue Reading →

Chiron in Pisces: a call to arms…

I have been transfixed this morning by the question of Chiron's rulership. I was reading some of Barbara Hand-Clow's 'Liquid Light of Sex' (another great discussion of astrology in disguise) and she referred to the fact of Chiron being struck by Achilles' poisoned arrow in his left foot. This immediately got me thinking about rulership.... Continue Reading →

Chiron in Pisces through the houses: Part 2

Continuing then with Chiron in Pisces through the houses: 7th House: With Chiron in Pisces here there are often difficulties within close relationships based upon an inability to set proper boundaries, a sense of being overwhelmed by relationship issues, or being taken for granted in your marriage or in other close partnerships. You may be... Continue Reading →

Chiron in Pisces through the houses

Chiron is little understood in the overall scheme of the astrology, however I believe this to be because there are very few individuals who are attuned to chirotic energy, which to manifest at all in the life, requires a real awakening to the compassionate sense; such an awareness is not usually gained without a considerable...

The Astrologer’s Degrees, a Study of the Evidence.

Today I wish to look in some detail at a specific phenomena that is of great interest to the astrologer, the provocatively named "Astrologer's Degree." Provocative, not least because in binary thinking (which is ultimately commonplace even among astrologers!) it suggests an on-off state, it provokes the deterministic view that an ability for astrology can...
