Planetary energies – Aug 30 – Sep 5 – Making a splash!

Is my heading a bit obscure this week? I’m cracking an ASTROLOGY JOKE, so it’s funny for about 0.000075% of the population, so let me explain… if you look at the attached chart, you can see that all the planets are generally scattered around the wheel, without any major conjunctions (JARGON WATCH – that’s planetsContinue reading “Planetary energies – Aug 30 – Sep 5 – Making a splash!”

The stars aligned…

Well done to Ash Barty, who won Wimbledon this week. During her press conference she said, “The stars aligned for me over the past fortnight.” I get that it’s a throwaway line, used to describe when we feel ‘in flow’, but it’s always fun to hear these sayings pop out.

The traditional ‘midContinue reading ““Is this it?” Welcome to the midlife crisis”

I’m a Leo, that’s good, right?

Ask people what they know about astrology and the answer is usually ‘not much’. They may know their sun sign and sometimes their moon or rising sign. For some reason though, the smattering of astrological knowledge stored in people’s brains tends to always be bound up with judgement. Rarely will someone relay their sun signContinue reading “I’m a Leo, that’s good, right?”

Is Pluto a planet?

Back in 2006, scientists in the International Astronomical Union reclassified what it meant to be a ‘planet’. Suddenly, Pluto was redefined into this new category of ‘dwarf planet’. Cynical fingers were pointed at astrologers as if to say, ‘SEE! You’re all frauds and nonsense, reading charts with planets that aren’t even planets! etc etc’. It’sContinue reading “Is Pluto a planet?”
