Mars’ full steam ahead

O.M.G., what a huge breath of fresh air this Mars-out-of-retrograde-shadow is, particularly to Mars-centric folks like myself. We have all been dealing with Mars’ retrograde themes since Mid-May, when it entered this stretch of the zodiac that it then tripled-back over, forward, retrograding, and then forward again.  During that time, our drive, passions, courage, willpower, […]

Why Astrology doesn’t run on belief

People sometimes ask me, why I “believe” in Astrology. That question amuses me with its’ underlying assumptions; that it’s a question of (presumably blind) faith, or reading or being told something which you then believe to be true. That is not how my path into Astrology went, at all; When I was first exposed to […]

Saturn’s Rx in Sagittarius: the seeking of healthy boundaries

With Saturn’s beginning of its’ 5-month retrograde in Sagittarius last Friday (March 25th, 2016 EDT), we are each of us exploring our relationships to boundaries- social, and personal, and how the two marry. With social-activist unrest going on in the world these days (which I wrote about here), let’s start with the social and transition […]

Social injustice, and the road to reform & healing

For a good chunk of today(March 24th, 2016), the transiting Moon joined forces (conjoined) with Black-Moon-Lilith, the voice of the wounded, angry feminine, in a sign of Libra, well-known for its’ connection with the scales of justice. For fellow Ontario residents, who’s eyes are open, we certainly saw those themes activated today. :-/ And I […]

In the wake of the Mercury Retrograde…

Oh, would you look at that- anyone else noticed how the social systems are showing even MORE cracks in their foundations of integrity this week? It’s not really in direct scandals.It isn’t always right there in the open with all its’ facts, but there are all these stories coming up lately, of things which give […]

The alignment in the sky, debunked.

So, by now, many of you have seen some reference to the “rare way 5 planets are lining up in the sky”, starting today. This seems to have caused some confusion, so I’d like to assure you all- this is NOT an Astrological phenomenon. The planets are movin’ along, business as usual, in their Astrological […]

The Virgo/Pisces oppositions- the emotional perspective

It’s tempting to reject and push away depressive apathy when it somehow stealthily finds its way in, chalking it up to just a negative side effect of Virgo season which must be transmuted. But, then again, perhaps the true inspiration and compassionately creative genius in life, is found through this feeling, and out the other […]

The Pisces full moon & its’ effects on me (as well as you?)

Why, do you ask, has this astrologer not been writing about this upcoming full moon before now?! Why, it’s because I’m busy wrestling with it more privately, in the quiet caverns of my mind which are filled with echoes on a night like this, of past disappointments and fears, of vulnerabilities and anger, of the […]

How to stay balanced during Virgo season

With Virgo season increasingly upon us (starting with the Jupiter ingression into Virgo on August 11th, and continuing from there with other players joining the field), my own personal motto right now has been “progress, not perfection”. Why? well, to reap the best that Virgo season has to offer, of course. As any healthy Virgo-type […]
