Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius - The great leap Forward!

/
When the Black Moon is transiting an astrological sign, the unfinished and unresolved issues concerning the sign emerge. She even acts as an inverter of values, showing us the B side of things. Why the B side? Because Black Moon Lilith is the dimension of the Real (as conceived in Lacanian psychoanalysis), the register of the impossible, of awe, of the raw experienced at the mere level of sensation, unelaborated by images, words and meanings. There is a strangeness to the Black Moon Lilith, something which mobilizes in other ways, as it concerns the visceral undercurrent, the backdrop behind words and images.

Deep down from the Hearth - The Cancer Solstice - June 21st UT 2017

/
There is much more in the world that unifies us than separates us, as the ripples of uncertainty radiate across the globe, yet at certain times of the year we can look to our universal light, the Sun for clarity, guidance and meaning. The Sun God in ancient Greek times, Apollo, was a God of prophecy and healing, an oracle and as the son of Zeus, truth. In astrology the light of the Sun is the most significant symbol of any astrological chart, it is the centre and the core of all astrological readings. So as the Sun appears to reach its furthest stretch into the Northern hemisphere (remember "Appears to", as we our Earth is the one that is turning and tilting on its axis) we have one of the major turning points(tilting extremes) of the year, the June Solstice. As astrologers we call it the Cancer Ingress, when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer, one of the four cardinal points and major turning points in our astrological wheel.

The Venus Star a Co-Creative Intelligence

Venus and her cycle is by far the most interesting and rhythmic of all planetary cycles, besides that of the lunation cycle which is much quicker and transient, the Venus cycle is made up of 8 year, 4 year, 9.5month and 19 month cycles, which we can use to plan, incubate, create, remember and work with. The timing of the Venus cycle. 9.5 months (plus a few days)– A conjunction with the Sun occurs every 9.5 months alternating from inferior to exterior conjunction 19 months – 1.6 years = 584 days= One synodic cycle of Venus

Astrological Ceres and Eating Disorders

/
It starts in heaven and ends in hell. First, successfully losing weight, but soon enough losing control instead, developing an addiction to food. An estimated 70 million people worldwide[1] suffers from a serious eating disorder (ED) and many die trying to beat the fat. At the core of the ED spectrum, ranging from anorexia and bulimia to binge eating and orthorexia, we find a fascinating connection to the mythology of Earth Mother Ceres, the goddess of fertility and grain, and her daughter, the young maiden Proserpina. It is a myth of change and of natural transition

Mutable Election: From cardinal revolution to mutable chaos!

/
In April 2011 Neptune entered its own sign Pisces, a sign of reflection both chaos and divine potential, and there it continues to mirror the state of chaos and challenge that a planet with 7 billion people trying to survive naturally offers. As Neptune rules nature, we are getting increasingly worried about the future of earth. We are at a staggering 7 billion inhabitants and the future we’ve all talked about for so long is moving closer.

No doubt many of us are feeling the uncertainty and extremity of the culminating mutable cross. The mutable cross is the alignment of three major planets that have been in this formation in and out of intensity since the end of last year, when Jupiter and Saturn first made a square, then Jupiter opposed Neptune and then Saturn squared Neptune, the faster moving planet always applying to create the aspect. Yet this week Venus and the Sun join this mutable line up to form...

Astrological Ceres

/
Correlating to the mother archetype, Ceres in the natal chart represents a matrix from which we will create a personal identity and relationship prototypes. Our ability to bond, to trust, to be self-expressive, to feel safe enough to openly share our heart, to feel nourished and to nurture is seen within the Ceres chart signature.

BLACK MOON LILITH - From the Visceral to the Sublime

/
The Black Moon is a virtual astrological point, which represents the lunar apogee. I will refer to it as Black Moon Lilith (BML) in this article, to differentiate it from other astrological points (such as the asteroid Lilith or the Dark Moon). The apogee is the point in the Moon’s elliptical orbit around the Earth at which it is furthest away from the Earth. It is at this position that it almost escapes, but doesn't! For it is right there that the pull of gravity shows its force, bringing the Moon back towards the Earth to continue its orbit. So here we recognize the first basic concept related to Black Moon Lilith: gravity. Isaac Newton would refer to this as a question of mass and distance.

Black Moon Lilith in Virgo Nov 27tH to AUG 25th/2015

When BML is in the EARTH signs we tend to experience a resistance to the visceral. Additionally when BML is in the MUTABLE signs we are also viscerally moved by the paradox of human experience. Black Moon Lilith in VIRGO is about a visceral resistance regarding the paradox of human experience. Put simply: how do we connect our logical perspective and our impulses? How do we integrate our objectivity and logic with our subjectivity and affections? And how do we manifest that integration in a tangible way? What words and what practical actions result from connecting heart and mind?
