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 [...]

About The Queen’s Passing
Having recently lost both my parents and both my in-laws, I know that one effect of death is to change the shape of a person’s life. Up until that point, if they have lived long, you may be thinking of them as a very old person, but a while after they die, you begin to […]

The US Pluto Return: We Took It Personally
Well, it was quite a welcome. In our first 36 hours in America, we accidentally saw Miss America (for real and about 20 feet away), stood for the Star Spangled Banner, went on a Pro-Choice demo, saw hundreds of police, tens of teen-age girls juggling fake guns, and got caught in an [...]

August Horoscopes: Start With A Bang …
  The month begins with a hugely important conjunction between fiery Mars and rebellious Uranus. This is an exciting breakthrough, a picket line, an accident, a passionate clinch — because it makes a conjunction with the North Node, it may be life changing. The rest of the month is [...]

Overturning Roe, Sowing Dragon’s Teeth
As soon as Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as a Supreme Court Justice, the overturning of the federal law protecting a woman’s right to abortion in the United States was inevitable. It was a matter of when, not if. Knowing a bad thing is going to happen does not make it less bad. The […]

Astrology of Now: Taking the Long View
We are living through a period of great uncertainty — to put it mildly. And for many of us, great anxiety. What with the looming food crisis, the energy crisis, the general cost of living crisis, the wars, the far right, the pandemic, the corruption and, most importantly of all, the [...]

Astrology of Now: Dragon Diarrhoea & an Invitation
Talking with a client this morning, a rather unpleasant simile for the coming eclipse popped out of my mouth: “It’s like diarrhoea.” Oops. A bowel evacuation is sometimes nasty, but necessary, especially when you’re getting rid of poison. This coming eclipse, on the [...]

Astrology of Now: Angels, Ghosts & Other Worlds
There are other worlds. Of course there are. We are more, or less, aware of them. If you get down to cat-level and look between blades of grass, a new world opens for you, where a bug is sheep-size and orchids are trees, or look into the heart of an orchid and you are a […]

Astrology of Now: Sizzle, Sizzle
Venus and her lover Mars meet quite often — at least once a year — but usually their trysts are brief, a matter of a few days at most. Perhaps that’s because their meetings are illicit, since Venus was, of course, officially married to Vulcan, the smith. This year, things are [...]

Sedna’s Not A Sulky Selkie
A few days ago, my dear friend, Isabel Tifft, wrote to me with some of her thoughts about possible astrological meanings of Sedna, one of the minor planets beyond Neptune, discovered and named in 2003. I found what she said so fascinating that I asked if I could share it with you. I found it [...]

Midwinter
I find myself fogbound in North Yorkshire on this Solstice Eve. Sound is muffled. Time and space are a mystery. The Sun is invisible, beyond the pale. It could be any time of day. Space indefinable: is the bent hawthorn near or far in the white? It is all still. At this most magical time, […]
