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...

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 →

Fate, Free Will and the Arc of Pluto

Free will. This concept more than any other has the power to invoke all sorts of impassioned reactions when the study of astrology is in the spotlight. I read once that a scientific conference had to be called off in the United States due to the ferocity of the protests outside the venue: its subject?... Continue Reading →

Pluto and the Personal Planets Revisited

Today, I will begin to summarise the various insights relating to Pluto's contacts with the personal planets that I have written over the last few weeks: they represent the sum total of my experience of the combinations with Pluto and their various manifestations into the life. I intend to look at case studies for each... Continue Reading →

Mercury Pluto: Insight or Inquisition?

Continuing with my current theme of analysing Pluto contacts to personal planets, today I wish to look in detail at the Mercury - Pluto combination, which in keeping with all applications of Pluto evinces a range of difficult effects, most especially because until the behaviour is recognised and reconciled it creates a compulsion, which will...

Moon – Pluto: the Gathering Storm

Recently I wrote an extensive article on the key tenets of Sun-Pluto contacts. Today I would like to discuss in similar depth, the themes of Moon's application to the Lord Hades, its effects being less outwardly manifest, but absolutely as far-reaching and powerful. The same quality of course will permeate the astrology of anyone born... Continue Reading →

The 8th House: A Good Death?

If you're a halfway competent astrologer and you have no interest in knowing how you're likely to meet your maker, then stop reading now. Today I am going to explore some of the key insights relating to death in the nativity; it is a profoundly difficult subject for very obvious reasons and not one that... Continue Reading →

The Astrology of Marital Breakdown…

It is unfortunate that love, perhaps more in keeping with Artemis than Aphrodite both waxes and wanes and there is no doubt whatever where the one is wondrous and fair, the other may often be laced with venom. I have advised a considerable number of clients in this particular regard and I have enough theoretical... Continue Reading →

The Serious Side of Ceres…

Before I begin today I would like to thank everyone who has taken the trouble to comment or send an email over these last few days, it has been very sincerely appreciated. The Jupiter effect is a well-known shortcut to experiencing any given planetary contact; the theory being that as the expanding power of Jupiter... Continue Reading →
