Why not tell yourself a new & better story?

You’ve worked hard. But to date, your actions have not delivered the desired results. More likely than not, this is because of undesirable (i.e. outgrown) behaviours, which in turn, have been driven by undesirable (i.e. outgrown) stories about yourself to which, over time, you’ve become attached. It only makes sense that to get desired results, you’ll need to manifest different behaviour that is fuelled by new and better stories. This is precisely where astrological coaching comes in. For example, Mr W has struggled to forge a stable career. Every job that he’s ever enjoyed has ended in ‘tears’ – either…

Finding Your Astrological Truth – it’s easier than you think!

Karen Thorne, an astrologer who over many years has earned my highest regard, has advised that in order to find my ‘truth’, I need to look to all the squares and oppositions in my natal chart – because they represent energies that have been somehow squashed – yet they remain essential for me to be the best that I possibly can. There is no opportunity here to ‘fake it until I make it’ – this is my essence – this is what I am. Libra For example, my Mercury/Neptune/Saturn conjunction in Libra is square my nodal axis (Capricorn/Cancer). This means that…

Time for Ms K to consolidate Saturn

Transiting Pluto (19 Capricorn) continues to hammer Ms K’s natal Mars (18 Cancer). Worse, her natal Saturn (14 Capricorn) is involved. It’s through Saturn that Ms K will find the strength and wisdom to get through life and with her strong Saturn (in ruler-ship and plugged into the angles) that should be fairly easy. But even the strongest Saturn will struggle with a transit from Pluto, astrologically the biggest bully on the block. Transiting Pluto conjunct natal Saturn is a once-and-a lifetime experience (not even everyone will have it) – a frustrating period of creative destruction making way for new beginnings.…

Working with Your Lunar Nodes

The nodes are oft associated with karma and reincarnation – the South Node representing what you’ve accomplished in past lives (both good and bad) and the North Node representing what you are meant to accomplish during your present incarnation. But even if you don’t believe in karma or reincarnation, you can still benefit from working with your nodes. Consider that the South Node represents energy with which it’s easy for you to work while the North Node represents not just challenges but also opportunities to develop new skills, attitudes, and perspectives. In my chart, the (mean) nodal axis is Capricorn/Cancer suggesting…

Responsibility

They say that worldly achievement involves not only risks and rewards but also responsibility. Fair enough. But how do you know if you’ve got the mix right? With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Capricorn, the next couple of days will provide opportunities to discover just that but I’m guessing that it won’t be all that easy and here’s why. Consider the story of Minos of Crete who, in order to become king, enlisted the aid of Poseidon, god of the sea. In return, Minos promised to sacrifice to Poseidon a wondrous white bull. But when it came time for…

Pluto’s 21st Century Trek Thru Capricorn Spells an End to 20th Century Economics

In a recent essay, philosopher John Gray suggests that John Maynard Keynes, one of the most influential economists of the 20th Century, would not have supported the ‘simple minded’ view that the only way forward is through government stimulation of the economy to facilitate a return to growth. The problem, Gray notes, isn’t just a deepening recession, but instead the breakdown of modern capitalism itself. He suggests that complex interaction of the collapse of debt-based finance, fatal faults in the euro’s design, and an on-going shift of economic power from the west to the east and south, have created a…
