Some of you may know that I try to get out into the wilderness whenever I can. I do not conceive of it as recreation, rather as a necessity, and it becomes increasingly so as I get older. It is not so much a call of the wild, as an echo from within that needs... Continue Reading →
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 →

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 →

Unfortunately, when Descartes concluded that 'I think therefore I am' he committed an act of genocide on higher states of consciousness for all future generations.
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 →
Back in the late 80s I lived a rather feral existence as a busking, itinerant astrologer (of sorts), and I hung with the hippies, bad companies, clattered haphazardly about the long, dusty summers and tried not to get too embroiled in life. They were the good old, bad old days. Unsurprisingly, in those days, I... Continue Reading →
