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 to achieve is an insight into how and why the rules of dignity that we follow work as they do, and what it means in practical terms. Therefore, we need to cover all of the principles so that we at least understand what the considerations are. Once we understand, we...

Too Much Pluto…

Join me for a relaxed half hour of discussion on the phenomenon of having too much, or too little Pluto. How to tell if you have just enough (or too much / too little) Pluto and what the likely effects will be in either case. We also take a view on ancient vs. current ideas about what is a "good" placement, what malefics are, and how to tell, just by getting the feeling for the unwritten rules of dignity, which planets are strong. This gives us an ability to take a more educated guess at which planet is the real...

Tales from the peregrine Moon: Sylvia Plath

In the pursuit of perfection in poetry there can be few luminaries as bright as Sylvia Plath, and it was her profound struggle with depression and grief which underpinned most achingly her gift, which, in pursuit of the sublime aim of describing the indescribable can have few equals; Plath was noted especially for her uncanny...

Feminist Astrology and Germaine Greer

As a work that is traditionally hailed as being antithetic to male comfort, I find that Germaine Greer's "Female Eunuch" probably says more about the negative stereotyping of women by women than it does about men. Of course, she argues (throughout her writing) that this is merely the extension of a patriarchal tyranny, that culturally... Continue Reading →

Those Elusive Trans-Neptunians…

Uranian astrology is an interesting study. I have always been a big fan of Ebertin's Cosmobiology ever since I read my grandfather's copy of "The Combination of Stellar Influences", which my decidedly odd adolescent brain found to be strangely compelling and to this day I find Ebertin's delineations to be among the best. Of course... Continue Reading →

Peregrination: the Movie.

Among the greatest misconceptions in astrology is the exaltation of rules above principles, because it is all too easy to forget that the rules are derived from observed principles, not the other way around. The astrologer that comprehends the principle that underpins the rule is then able to discard the rule-bound logic of the mind,... Continue Reading →

Peregrination Files: A Zodiacal Sampler

Peregrination of the Sun gives a beautiful insight into the archetypal vibration of the zodiacal spectrum; there is no more perfect attunement to the fundamental quality of any sign that is possible, except perhaps a Cazimi Peregrine Island of a sympathetic planetary typology in its domicile (such as a Cazimi Venus in Libra or Mercury...

More on Pallas: Powerhouse of Undiluted Talent.

My last article brought together the principles of Cazimi and Peregrination as identifying criteria for the most pure and profound expressions of planetary energy; in my experience there is no better method of identifying a specific astrologic archetype than identifying natives who display either Peregrinations or Cazimi placements. The first forces an 'over-expression' of the... Continue Reading →

David Cameron: Spin Doctor or Saviour?

With all the hoo-har about the release of Barack Obama’s birth details and the subsequent cacophony of ephemerides being slammed onto astrologer’s desks the world over (okay, so we all use software for calculation nowadays, but it’s an image I like!) I thought I would take a look today at Britain’s answer to Mr Obama,... Continue Reading →

The Astrology of Photography.

I find that astrology and photography have much in common. They are both concerned with an ongoing attempt to capture the intangible; both rely upon rules that must be learned, subsumed and then transcended in order to attain mastery; they are both concerned with the sublime and perhaps most pertinently of all, neither, whether approached...
