  • Mars in Libra – Might Debate & Indecision Give You a New Lease on Life?

    Throughout August and the first half of September, Mars – planet of fast-paced action – is in Libra. Mars is a mover and shaker.  He doesn’t  plan ahead.  He goes after what he thinks best for him at the moment and works out the details (if at all) later. But in Libra, Mars is forced […]

  • La Passione di Roma & the difference between modern and classical art

    William James (often referred to as the father of modern psychology) was greatly impressed with what he believed to be the distinction between classical and modern art. In ancient Greek art, he argued, lay the quintessence of all reality. There the artist’s idea runs through all his creation allowing it to lose any amount of […]

  • Mars in Virgo – a time to be whole

    For most of June and July, the planet Mars (action) is in the zodiac sign of Virgo (wholeness through service) – making this a time to work and play with purpose. Not just any old purpose, mind you, for the challenge of Virgo is to be of service not to oneself, but to the whole of […]

  • The Summer Solstice and the Portal of Mortals

    “Today is the summer solstice – the longest day of the year.   From here we start the long, slow slog to darkness, which culminates at the winter solstice when the sun does its annual ‘about face’ to again, favour us with its warming rays. As markers of our seasons, the solstices have long been the […]

  • Today is a Two of Swords Day – Prepare to see things as they really are.

    With the sun in Gemini (where we learn that dichotomies like dark/light and good/bad – are but two sides of the same coin) and (2) the moon in Libra (where we often find ourselves in a stalemate) today is a Two of Swords day. On a divinatory level, the Two of Swords suggests we’re trying […]

  • Be forewarned – it’s a Seven of Swords Day

    Yet when the energy of Seven of Swords is applied with a playful creativity, you might just come up with a workable solution to a problem for which previously there had been none. Indeed, this is quite likely as seven is the number of victory; it heralds just rewards for hard work.

  • Mercury in Gemini – a Gift from the Gods

    Today Mercury, the planet of connections and communication, moves into its sign of ruler ship, Gemini, where it remains until the end of this month. We may think we already know all there is to know about connections and communication – after all we’re post-modern aficionados with our iPods and iPhones and of course… there’s […]
