Time Devours his Children
This article will be published in the next issue of Infinity Astrological Magazine. “By Saturn they seek to represent that power which maintains the cyclic course of times and seasons. This is the sense that the Greek name of that god bears, for he is called Cronus, which is the same as [...]

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. […]

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Saturn Returns
When you venture into the dark woods of fairy tale, be careful of the creatures you meet — they might not be what they seem. The wolf may speak like a gentleman, the witch may live in a house of gingerbread. Hansel and Gretel’s witch lured them with sugarplums and cake; then she [...]

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. [...]

The Unstoppable AOC: A Mighty Saturn Return
It’s easy to forget in all the fuss about the youngest ever congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that her main asset is her mind (Mercury on the MC). Her evisceration of the campaign finance laws this week demonstrated her razor sharp intelligence and ability to get to the heart of an [...]

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 [...]

Donald Trump has been on TV since 2004, sitting at a big desk with the stars and stripes behind him. He wasn’t the president then, just pretending to be a boss on the reality TV show The Apprentice. He looked menacing and said, “You’re fired”, and rewarded contestants if they were “good”, and [...]
