When Saturn returns…

One of the first concepts that the astrologically-curious often learn about is the ‘Saturn Return’. It’s a planetary life cycle that we all experience at some stage between ages 28-30. And it gets a bad wrap. Google it and you’ll find, “Surviving Saturn’s Return”, “27 things I learned from Surviving my Saturn Return” and “HowContinue reading “When Saturn returns…”

How long will Covid last?

Astrology is a tricky business, and these days astrologers resist ‘predictions’. Instead, we like to ‘forecast’ the astrological weather – identifying upcoming planetary interactions and speculating on how they may manifest. Most have the potential for both good and bad outcomes. In 2020, the outcomes DID indeed look bad – astrologers were united in thisContinue reading “How long will Covid last?”

A Covid Christmas?

It’s beginning to look a lot like a Covid Christmas.. I’ve watched the recent return to ‘freedom’ with a bit of trepidation. Sometimes being an astrologer can be a bit of a pain. Like now, for example, when the world has been going ‘yay! freedom!’, but the stars have been saying, ‘hang on, we’re notContinue reading “A Covid Christmas?”

Be prepared for Venus Retrograde

Every 18 months, Venus goes ‘retrograde’. It’s a neat visual trick from our vantage point here on earth and it happens in the same five parts of the zodiac over an 8-year cycle. Join the dots between the five retrograde points and you get a pentagram. Yes folks, Venus is the original creator of thatContinue reading “Be prepared for Venus Retrograde”

Clarity and fresh starts

ASTRO HEADLINES: Nov 29 – Dec 5 This week brings an interesting mix of clarity and dreams, as we wind down this lunar cycle and welcome a Solar Eclipse on Saturday night. A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids – a fresh starting point and a chance to reset in a particular areaContinue reading “Clarity and fresh starts”

Your past catches up with you…

Over the last 24 hours, the Sun and South Node have enjoyed a little meetup at 1 degree Sagittarius. The South Node is part of the nodal axis (exactly 180 degrees opposite the North Node), where the Sun and Moon’s paths cross. It’s an empty point in the sky, rather than a physical planet, soContinue reading “Your past catches up with you…”

Eclipse season begins!

Astro Headlines – Nov 15-21 Building in intensity, this week is caffeinated with a triple shot macchiato, building to the Taurus Lunar Eclipse on Friday night (8pm AEST). It’s a high energy week, full of confidence and physical motivation. But also present is a soft-heartedness that might see you eager to fix any past hurts.Continue reading “Eclipse season begins!”

Take action with the Virgo New Moon

You don’t need to be a fully-fledged, purple-wearing pagan in order to find joy in watching the cycles of nature. The ebb and flow of the yearly seasons and the monthly moon phases can keep us living with mindfulness and meaning. Taking note of, and living with, the Moon cycle is a simple way toContinue reading “Take action with the Virgo New Moon”

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. While I’m not taking thisContinue reading “The stars aligned…”

What is the meaning of Mercury Retrograde?

If you follow any astrology pages online, you’ll be familiar with the term ‘Mercury Retrograde’. But what is it? And what does it mean? ‘Mercury Retrograde’ describes days when the planet Mercury appears to be going backwards through the zodiac. It’s a visual trick – none of the planets actually go backwards – but itContinue reading “What is the meaning of Mercury Retrograde?”
