Alexander Nix: His Business is Discord
Alexander Nix, suspended head of Cambridge Analytica, the data firm accused of manipulating voters around the globe, has just ducked testifying before a British parliamentary committee. So it seems he’s a coward as well as a liar. I guess even he would have a hard time explaining the video [...]

Astrology of Now: War or Peace?
No doubt about it: this is a tough and dangerous month. Here’s why. Mars, the planet of war, aggression, action and passion, is pounding his way through the sign of Capricorn. At the start of April, he contacted sombre, stony Saturn, sitting there in his own sign, and at the end of the month, [...]

A Time For Astrology
This, from the King James version of the Bible, should probably be framed and on every astrologer’s  wall. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is […]

Fridamania
(Victor Oliver, editor of the Astrological Journal, has very kindly asked me to write a column loosely about “fashion”. I’ll be publishing them here too.) A squiggle of monobrow, two beady black eyes — it’s a shorthand for Frida Kahlo, the long-dead Mexican artist that just about everyone can [...]

Carillion: Death of a Frankenstein
It’s hard to overstate the importance of a company called Carillion to the British government and the British economy. Well, it collapsed today. Like its cannibalised name, Carillion is a corporation made up of the caracasses of other corporations. It was stitched together in 1999 to take [...]

What Astrologers Are Saying About Saturn in Capricorn
It’s been a long, strange trip around the Zodiac for Saturn over the last 27 years, but at last he’s come home. Yesterday, he arrived with the dust of the road clinging to his clothes, in Capricorn, the sign which, by tradition, he rules. Perhaps, he heaved a sigh of relief to be back in […]

Astrology of Now: In the Footprints of Saturn
We woke up to snow on Sunday. Swirling, twirling flakes, hurtling fast, then fluttering delicately past the bedroom window. The garden had vanished by 6am and by mid-day a soft, heavy blanket of white had covered everything. With snow comes silence. It’s easy in the first snowfall to imagine [...]

Mad About Each Other: Harry and Meghan
Let’s focus on some good news. Prince Harry, brother of the future king, is going to marry a successful, mixed-race, working woman in her 30s. She’s American, divorced and brought up largely by her single mother. Her family is not out of the top drawer, but out of that capacious middle one. [...]

Astrology of Now: The Beautiful Moon
“And that’s why I have to go back to so many places there to find myself and constantly examine myself with no witness but the moon and then whistle with joy, ambling over rocks and clods of earth, with no task but to live, with no family but the road.” From The Wind in The […]
