Chiron in Aries – April 2018 – April 2027

On April 17th 2018, at approximately 9.30am GMT Chiron moves from the ethereal and indefinite waters of Pisces, to begin a new Astrological Cycle in the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries, where it will remain until April 2027.
Taking Fifty years to complete a full cycle of the horoscope, Chiron, maverick wanderer of our solar system, has been identified since his discovery with the archetype of the wounded healer.

Marching Orders: Mars in Capricorn (17 March – 16 May, 2018)

Traditional astrology considers Mars to be exalted in Capricorn, where his assertiveness and aggression can be put to use for society. Mars in Capricorn can help build institutions, but he can also storm the fortresses and initiate change. This year, Mars will be quite busy in the sign of the mountain goat, meeting with Capricorn’s ruler Saturn then going on to conjoin Pluto, in addition to other aspects he’ll be making.

“Rage Against The Dying Of The Light” Chiron Returns – Part I

The Chiron Return happens to us all at the age of around fifty, a deeply emotional transit where we find ourselves standing at the threshold between life and death, a liminal place between the worlds. It is there that we are faced with the spectral shades of all that has gone before, and witness them as they blend and dance, merge and become indistinct in the face of the enveloping darkness of the unknown that lies ahead.
Although it is widely accepted that ‘nothing is certain, apart from death & taxes’, like Janus, the “Chironian” looks both forwards and back,

The Fractal Nature of Astrology with the Venus Star

As seekers of astrological wisdom we are often confronted by the bigger questions of why does astrology work. We know it works, we see it working in our lives and in our clients lives, in the world around us and in so many varied and profoundly interesting ways, yet it is hard to define exactly how or why it works, as not one single explanation will ever suffice. Something that has helped enlighten my journey of astrological understanding, of why the patterns and cycles of the planets continue to coincide with our lives, is the understanding of astrology as a dynamic fractal like system, set off at birth with its own unique formula and conditions, that then continues to unfurl and unfold as a never ending fractal like pattern of growth.

The Sacred Dance of Venus and Mars continues

The dance that the celestial lovers create in the sky mirrors our relationship patterns. This interplay also reflects their roles as key archetypes of feminine and masculine energy.

The fact that Venus and Mars are on opposite sides of the Earth in the solar system mirrors their astrological rulership as opposing signs of the zodiac. They are also opposing forces in physics in their association as metals copper and iron. In every aspect of their relationship they work in unison, always as a pair of opposites.

Accomplished Wisdom ~ Saturn in Capricorn

Time Lord Saturn is about to leave forward-thinking, risk-taking, hopeful Sagittarius, and move into its sombre and statuesque home sign of Capricorn, on the 20th of Dec. Stately Saturn’s passage is only one day before the North’s Winter Solstice, when the Sun will also follow Saturn into the Zodiac’s 10th sign of great accomplishment: the Capricorn Sea Goat.

The Arrow Aims High: Mars in Sagittarius 26 January to 17 March 2018

Every two years, Mars, the Cosmic Warrior, spends about six weeks in the sign the archer, Sagittarius. Whether he is waging a holy war, advocating for a social or political philosophy, or fighting for a just cause, Mars gets riled up in Jupiter’s home sign. Sagittarius is a Fire sign that isn’t known for reserve and caution, and that suits Mars just fine.

NEPTUNE STATIONS DIRECT – OUT OF CHOAS EMERGES CLARITY

King of the oceans, the Roman Neptune (Greek Poseidon) rules primarily the seas and all other waterways, earthquakes, and horses.
Water shape shifts; it flows; such fluidity helps us all adjust, fill, buoy or, more negatively, drown. Ergo, Neptune’s not exactly a black and white kinda energy…
Often, water correlates to mood, intuition, sensitivity, and empathy. Represented by the ebb and flow of the ocean’s waves as the tide rises and recedes, Neptune’s indicative of a collectively eternal situation that calls for a certain amount of surrender in order to go with the natural flow…

Super Blue Blood Lunar Eclipse in Leo 11°37’- January 31st!

When there are two Full Moons in the same calendar month, the second is called a ‘Blue Moon’. This Full ‘Blue Moon’ in dramatic Leo, on January 31st, is also a ‘Super Moon’, which happens when the Moon is closest to the Earth as Luna culminates (making this the second and last Super Moon of 2018). As a Super Moon* it also means tides will be strong again, with flooding, earthquakes and tsunami alerts all possible. Perhaps even more so in some areas**, as this second January Full Moon is also a spectacular Lunar Eclipse. And because it is also a total Lunar Eclipse – when the eclipsed Moon turns a light-refracting deep copper-red – it is therefore known as a ‘Blood Moon’. Excited yet? It’s a humdinger!
