Amanda Gorman: On Fire
I was wondering how the Mars-Uranus conjunction — that fiery, combustible, dangerous pairing — would manifest on the day of the inauguration. And then Amanda Gorman, Youth Poet Laureate, stepped onto the platform and began to declaim. She looked fantastic, like a queen from a [...]

January-February Asteroids: Hygeia Special
  The new asteroid report is up on the members’ page. As well taking a look at the actions of Vesta, Ceres and friends, I looked into Hygeia, the asteroid of health this month, because… pandemic. She’s retrograde again, and this time she’s in Leo opposing the [...]

On the Death of My Father
My Dad died at around 8.30am on July 31. His passing was pleasant, I’m told. He was in his own bed, in his own house. His carer came to find him, breezily calling down the corridor, and sailing into his room. Seeing he was still supine, she said his name, he replied, “Oui”, [...]

An Interview With Me
Richard Wickes, who hosts a fascinating podcast devoted to “light workers”, interviewed me last week. When you get a Cancer and a Pisces talking together — one on an island in the Gulf of Siam and the other in the sleepy Thames Valley — you do some meandering. The [...]

Giving You the Heads Up
I wrote this for subscribers to my horoscopes at the end of February, but I thought in the circumstances, I’d better share it. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was […]

The Best Book on Asteroids

Coronavirus, China and the World Health Organisation
Sometime in late 2019, people began to fall ill in a city in eastern China. The disease was a type of virus, a mutation it seemed of the coronavirus, so a relative of the common cold. While it started to spread, Hygeia, the goddess of hygiene, was having a zizz. In early October, Hygeia the [...]

Australia’s House Is On Fire
Baking winds, sulphurous skies, raining cinders, the roaring; the trembling air, the red smoke, giant tongues of flame lashing the landscape, devouring trees and buildings. Fleeing animals, fleeing people, blankets of ash, a pall of smoke… The images of the bush fires in Australia have [...]

There’s an awful lot of churn right now. You can see it on the streets of Santiago, Hong Kong, La Paz and Barcelona; in the British Parliament and American Congress. And in Kurdistan where “confusion now hath made his masterpiece.” People are in a froth. There’s [...]

August Asteroids
Taking a quick look at what the asteroids are up to at the moment. Juno, Pallas, Ceres and Vesta move slowly enough to have serious impact, and quickly enough to be entertaining. Getting to know your asteroids adds a little turmeric and chili, ginger and garlic to your horoscopic stew. [...]

Greta Thunberg, One of the Wise Children
“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. [...]
