Monthly Horoscopes

Readers write:
“This isn’t your Saturday-cartoon, lottery-numbers-and-call-your-mother horoscope. It’s the thing I look forward to in my inbox every month, the thought-provoking bits of insight I can rely on to make sense of what is going on in the larger world around me. If you want to be led around by the nose, don’t look here; if what you want is helpful, honest — and uncannily accurate — advice, along with some authentic food for thought and reflection, then look no further.. ”

“I’ve come to depend on your deeply knowledgeable & wise horoscopes.  Never dreamed I’d find an astrologer with the great intelligence &  wit you possess, let alone your comprehensive understanding of history, arts and the human condition. Lucky me to have found you!”

“Like weather reports for the soul, your horoscopes have consistently prepared me for the month ahead, and I’ve often been dragged out of the doldrums by realising it’s the astrological conditions that I’m labouring under, rather than some inherent character flaw coming to the fore. Your accompanying illustrations are lovely, and include fine art, photography and artefacts, superbly curated from ancient and modern culture.”



About May

We are swept up in a turbulent sea of extraordinary power as we race into May on the back of the eclipse of 30 April. Doors and windows burst open for some of us, whether that’s in our minds, our hearts or literally in the world.

On top of that topsy turvy eclipse feeling, the watery, feeling energy released by the conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune on 12 April continues to flow, not just in the first 10 days of May, while Jupiter is still in Pisces, but right through to the end of the month, as Mars activates that conjunction again on 16-17 May.

To see the beauty of the world is to put your hands on lines that run uninterrupted through life and through death. Touching them is an act of hope, for perhaps someone on the other side, if there is another side, is touching them, too.

The Astrology Talk Podcast

Here’s my monthly podcast with my friend Sally Kirkman.  Once a month, we take astrology by the scruff of its neck and give it a good shake out. We chat over a cup of strong coffee or weak tea about our favourite topic – the language of the stars.

What’s in store for the month ahead? Which Sun Signs are up? Which are, well, coasting? What dates should you take a risk and when should you stay at home? And why was last month so … last monthish?
We’d love you to listen in. Make yourself a cuppa and join us.
New episode on the 18th of each month.

The Fiery Post-Eclipse Time

  Jupiter and Mars will be in fiery Aries in the coming weeks, but at the same time there’s still plenty of Taurus earthy energy, and that swishing noise coming from Pisces. It’s still busy up there in the sky, and Sally & I have some things to say about it. Listen and enjoy.

The Astrology Talk Podcast is now on YouTube.
