September Horoscopes: Making the Moment Last
We are our pets: our pets are us. Or so we may believe. Who knows what’s really going on beneath those be furred skulls. What is true though is that Virgo is a writer’s sign, and if you type in the words writers and cats into a search engine, you will be deluged with images. […]

Virgo Season: Retrogrades A Go-Go
This month Sally and I discuss all those planets turning tail and running for the hills — as well as few coming back to the well to drink some cool, sweet water. It’s really pretty complicated. There will be winners and losers — and those might just be the same person. Links to audio and […]

Talking About Teaching Teenagers & Helping Families
As you  know, members of the Oxford Astrologer have a monthly Q&A, which really ought to be relabelled a salon, since, in fact, everyone pitches in. Usually, it’s closed so that people can talk freely, but I am publishing this one because Alex Trenoweth was kind enough to come along [...]

International Women’s Day
  The first national women’s day seems to be 28 February 1909 — as far as I can find. It was organised by the Socialist Party of America. The idea began to spread and by 11 March, 1911, the first International Women’s Day was marked by more than a million people across [...]

You probably know that I do a Q&A for subscribers to the horoscopes (which happens most months). The format varies, and this month, we were lucky to have Barry Goddard over to chat about astrology and shamanism, what Pluto wants, and more. He also answered questions from the audience in a [...]

Book Review: Surfing the Galactic Highways
“Reading an astrology chart is an act of faith, for there is no good rational reason why any of it should work. Why should the position of the planet Mercury in the sky at the moment of your birth say anything about how your mind works? Or Venus say something about the kind of person [...]

Harry!
I’ve been avoiding the whole Harry/Meghan/etc saga, but yesterday it was so in my face that I thought I’d sneak a peek at the prince’s chart. My question was essentially: why now for Harry? I looked at just three charts: Prince Harry’s natal chart, which has an A rating [...]
