Taurus: A Self-portrait and a Poem
The Afternoon Sun  …This room, how familiar it is. The couch was here, near the door, a Turkish carpet in front of it. Close by, the shelf with two yellow vases. On the right—no, opposite—a wardrobe with a mirror.  In the middle the table where he wrote, and the three big wicker chairs. Beside [...]

Aries: A Self-portrait and a Poem
  You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may tread me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Does my sassiness upset you?  Why are you beset with gloom?  ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells Pumping in my living room… Read the rest of [...]

Astrology of Now: The Green One
The Green One, al Khidr, may be a traveller or an angel, a sailor or a sage; he guards the sea, is a patron of poets and calligraphers, heals the sick, and as you can see above rides on the back of fish. He may come to your aid if you are drowning, heal your […]

Venus in Pisces: The Little Mermaid
Venus, the goddess of love and harmony, art and laughter, dives into the deep waters of Pisces on February 25. Looking up people with Venus in Pisces, I noticed that Hans Christian Andersen, writer of fairytales, was born with this particular signature. Which set me thinking about his [...]

Pisces: A Self-portrait and a Poem
Sea Breeze The flesh is sad, Alas! and I have read all the books. Let’s go! Far off. Let’s go! I sense that the birds, intoxicated, fly deep into unknown spume and sky! Nothing – not even old gardens mirrored by eyes – can restrain this heart that drenches itself in the sea, O nights, […]

Venus in Aquarius: 1-25 February
I’m starting a new series of videos on Venus and her journey through the Zodiac this month, beginning with Venus in Aquarius. I think it’s relevant for everyone, and always useful to be keeping track of what the goddess of peace and love is up to. This month she’s especially [...]

Aquarius: A Self-portrait and a poem
  Patterns  I walk down the garden-paths,  And all the daffodils  Are blowing, and the bright blue squills.  I walk down the patterned garden-paths  In my stiff, brocaded gown.  With my powdered hair and jeweled fan,  I too am a rare  Pattern. As I wander down   The garden-paths.  My [...]

Capricorn: A Self-Portrait and a Poem
For joy’s sake, from my hands For joy’s sake, from my hands, take some honey and some sun, as Persephone’s bees told us.   Not to be freed, the unmoored boat. Not to be heard, fur-booted shadows. Not to be silenced, life’s dark terrors. Now we only have kisses, dry and bristling like [...]

Sagittarius: A Self-Portrait and a Poem
I Am Much Too Alone In This World  I am much too alone in this world, yet not alone     enough to truly consecrate the hour. I am much too small in this world, yet not small     enough  to be to you just object and thing,  dark and smart. I want my free will and want […]

How To Deal With Mars in Aries AOC style
The redoubtable Alexandria Ocasio Cortez made a blistering speech to congress on July 23, in response to being verbally assaulted by Representative Ted Yoho on the steps of that institution. It’s worth hearing from beginning to end. Doubtless one day it will be taught to schoolchildren. [...]

Mother, Memory, Cake: Inside the Cancerian Mind
“… one day in winter, as I came home, seeing that I was cold, my mother offered me some tea, a thing that I did not ordinarily take. I declined at first, and then for no particular reason changed my mind. She sent out for one of those short, plump little cakes called petite madeleine, [...]

Astrology of Now: Be Kind(er)
There’s a lot of fire and brimstone booming around the skies right now. It’s due to a few factors, but I want to focus on Mars, the warrior, in Aries, the One. This is a powerful and dangerous transit, to be handled with care — but there are good things about it too. Mars in [...]
