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 September

The Sun is in mutable earth at this time of year, in the sign of Virgo. There’s always something a little wistful about September — at least in the North. All the bustle of August holidays is over, empty ice-cream wrappers blow in an easterly wind, and the children are confined once more to the classrooms.

On the other hand, the Sun is still warm, and the beach is empty now — how delightful. Can we grab a few more warm days and a dip in the sea before it’s too late…?

I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.”

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.

Libra Season Podcast: The End of an Era, Friendship and Alliances

  It’s the end of an era. We say good-bye to Queen Elizabeth II, and farewell also to Serena and Roger on the tennis court. But in the end is the beginning, so we’re also looking forward to the people and things yet to come into our lives. Those things just visible from the corner […]
