Today and Tomorrow are ‘serious play’ days. YEAH!

With the Sun in Pisces (oneness with life & nature) and the Moon in Gemini (student/child) today is a ‘serious play’ day. In the Joie de Vivre tarot deck, we find Bliss and her mer-bunny friends, Charity and Innocence, swimming side by side. Oh, what fun! A lovely day spent with best friends playing in the sea. Naturally Bliss and her friends are enjoying themselves. Why wouldn’t they? But I’m betting that they also have some method to their ‘madness’ and for want of a better term, I’ll call that ‘serious play’. In a nutshell, this means play done for…

Solar Return 2017-18 – Happy Birthday SH

The solar return chart constructed for the place in which you currently live, gives a snapshot of your next 12 months. In reading this chart, we look only to the tightest (2-3 degrees at most) Ptolemaic aspects (i.e. trine, square, sextile, conjunction, and opposition). Naturally, we’re looking for angular planets – to the extent there are any, they will pretty much direct the show. Not only this but we’re looking to see if any planets make aspects to the angles or fall in the exact degree of the nodal axis. After that, we will look to the tightest (> 5…

Donald Trump – astro basics you can’t afford to ignore

There’s no sense in asking why Donald Trump embraces alternative truths – and there’s no sense in demanding him to do otherwise. As you can see from his natal chart, he has Neptune square Mercury and in the words of some of my excellent astrological colleagues  – ‘this aspect indicates a difficulty with an overactive imagination interfering with rational and logical processes of thought – which can result in self-deception and the construction of a private version of truth and reality’.In the words of another excellent astrological colleague, this aspect also ‘suggests problems with concentration and stretching the truth (consciously…

Today is a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day – chill out, observe, deliberate

With the Sun in Cancer (cold/wet) and the Moon in Gemini (hot/wet) it’s going to be a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day. As you may recall, humoural theory is based on the ancient and medieval physiology and medicine as expounded by Empedocles, Hippocrates, and Galen – it’s all to do with the four block or ‘roots’ of the material world that manifest in certain humours and their related temperaments: ELEMENT QUALITY HUMOUR TEMPERAMENT Fire Hot/dry Yellow Bile Choleric Earth Cold/dry Black Bile Melancholic Water Cold/wet Phlegm Phlegmatic Air Hot/wet Blood Sanguine Earlier (4th July), we had another Phlegmatic/Sanguine day when the…

Today and Tomorrow are Five of Swords Days

Clearly someone in this card has been ill-treated – abused or betrayed or otherwise taken advantage of and because this card is one of separation, there’s a sense of disgrace and alienation. Most will see in this card a win/lose situation where a odious victor has vanquished his two rather pathetic opponents.
