What is Spirituality? I’m sure that I should know…

A client asked for astrological insight on her spirituality. But what she meant by that, she wasn’t too sure. I told her she wasn’t alone in her confusion and suggested that we explore this together. She wasn’t too keen on that, however. For her, spiritualty was too personal. OK – so I decided to come up with something by myself. It couldn’t be that … Read More What is Spirituality?

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Once, I knew a Belgian ‘white’ witch who had been a powerful (hereditary) black magician. At the height of his powers, he could kill a man just by looking at him, or at least so he said. Sounds a bit much but I believed him – not the least because he had a Pluto Square Mercury and Pluto sextile Venus – both within seconds of … Read More The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Today and Tomorrow are Queen of Sword’s Days

With the Sun in Virgo (discerning) and the Moon in Aries (daring & defiant), today and tomorrow are Queen of Swords days. The Queen of Swords is not only tenacious, but also prone to being argumentative. Nothing escapes her all-encompassing gaze. She possesses more than ample intellectual capabilities to process what she’s learned. Because she is by nature an independent woman, she is oft … Read More Today and Tomorrow are Queen of Sword’s Days

What’s your Dharma/ Career path?

In your astrological chart, the MC or Mid-heaven marks the highest point that the Sun will reach on the day that you were born. In this respect, it represents the point for which you’re always aiming –  call it what you like – dharma, calling, vocation, and/or personal path to enlightenment. The energy symbolised by the zodiac sign on the MC (along with the … Read More What’s your Dharma/ Career path?

Esoteric Dilemmas

In some esoteric circles, the MC/IC (Mid-heaven/Imum Coeli) axis depicts your spiritual descent down the ladder from the stars and into bodily incarnation.[1] The idea is that before birth, you were given a daemon that selects the pattern that you are to live out on earth. [2] Soul, then, is the mediating consciousness between body and spirit and, at the IC (Latin for ‘bottom … Read More Esoteric Dilemmas

Dark Shadows (aka Saturn)

The client’s chart upon which I’m now concentrating has Aquarius rising. This means that the chart ruler is Saturn, which is now undergoing a bit of a battering by transiting Pluto. In keeping with this challenge, I thought it useful to revisit how Saturn fares in each of the twelve signs and houses. The following comes from a lecture given by Dermod Moore for … Read More Dark Shadows (aka Saturn)

Date with Fate & Water Houses Planets

I’m currently doing a chart for a client who not only has lots of planets in the 8th house but also a key planet in the 12th. Hence, I thought it useful to revisit symbolism associated with the ‘water houses’ (4th, 8th, 12th) – the following comes from a lecture given by Liz Greene for the CPA in March 2002. Keywords – Fate, Family … Read More Date with Fate & Water Houses Planets
