Astrology of Now: The Game's Up
Well, mendacity, greed and cruelty won last night’s unpopularity contest. That is the Conservative party won the UK general election — in England and Wales. It was also a victory for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction — a conjunction that means The End, as discussed in this post. The UK will now leave the European Union quickly, […]

Astrology of Now: What Are You Ending?
Endings are often excellent. An end to smallpox, an end to abuse, an end to exploitation. And what about happy endings? Weddings come at the end of a romance; birth comes at the end of a pregnancy; a victory that comes at the end of a war, a judgment at the end of a trial. […]

Why Meghan Is Brilliant For The Crown
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, are finally suing the tabloids. The British media and the royal family have a weird symbiotic relationship.
