Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend an entire day of lectures by Christeen Skinner about financial astrology. Although I learned many things (including that my harmonious natal connection between Jupiter and Pluto keeps me financially afloat during tough times), my priority was to gain information to support my work-in-process novel, The Curve of Capricorn, and… Continue reading Financial Astrology – might we be headed for a significant recession in 2025-2026?
It’s only natural to assume that the world is as we see it and that people are as we imagine them to be. But the reality is a bit more complicated than that and part of the reason is because of the psychological phenomena known as ‘projection’. According to psychology folks, projection is an automatic… Continue reading Psychological projections – uncomfortable gifts for a more authentic you
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,… Continue reading Why not tell yourself a new & better story?
Originally developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940’s and 1950’s, the philosophy underpinning this approach to coaching is that under the right circumstances, we’re all capable of sorting ourselves out. To achieve this, the coach needs to offer his or her client both a ‘safe space’ for talking and a heavy dose of empathetic listening.… Continue reading The Astro-Reality of Person-Centred Coaching
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… Continue reading What is Spirituality? I’m sure that I should know…
Recently, a friend told me how she’d hurt her back after a difficult week. Not only had she been exasperated with her aging mother but she’d had a nasty argument with her partner. Playing the astrological angel, I relayed ‘important’ information about how transiting Neptune was setting off her natal T-Square – Saturn (backbone), Moon… Continue reading Apologies and T-Square…
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… Continue reading Dark Shadows (aka Saturn)
What is a complex? Charcot – identifies a complex as ‘an idea’ or ‘group of ideas’ that ‘settles in the mind in the fashion of parasites’. Janet – suggests that a complex is an ‘idée fixe subconsciente’ that, having split off from the personality as a whole, wields enormous (unconscious) power. Freud- attributes to complexes… Continue reading Do you have a complex? 100% chance that you do.
Summary – Haven’t been feeling yourself? Gloom and doom got you down? Has someone you thought you could trust deceived you? The dark cloud under which you’ve been living these past nine months will soon lift but you’ll still need to remain vigilant to avoid being deluded. Keep your spirits up! Although your skies may… Continue reading As promised, solar return/predictive work for MC – chin up!
According to Bernadette Brady and Darrelyn Gunzburg (AstroLogos), when looking at Solar Return (SR) charts, look only to the tightest (Ptolemaic) aspects (2-3 degrees at most) made by your SR planets to the four SR angles as well as any SR planets falling in the exact degree of the SR nodal axis. Not only that,… Continue reading Solar Returns – a clever way to snapshot your upcoming year – thanks Bernadette & Darrelyn!
