As a resident on earth, you are a member of a family, a tribe, a nation, a world; you’re a lover and fighter, a child, a worker, a friend… We are all connected and disconnected. Articles on love, marriage, nature, society and more.

Royal Wedding: Celebrating Power
Last summer, I predicted a royal wedding this year. That was partly on the basis of how alarmingly these times in Great Britain resemble that watershed year 1981 – brutal financial restrictions from the government, blood on the streets, looming unemployment and an uneasy Liberal coalition [...]

Primavera: Love is All Around
Yesterday, we walked through purple violets, pale yellow primroses and cowslips, pink campion and bluebells. White petals from the mayflower tree spattered the ground beneath our feet and scented the air around us. Truly, the goddess of beauty, Venus, rules. Who doesn’t love this time of [...]

Astrology Is Not a Science; So What Is It?
Our lot often gets hot under the collective collar when scientists diss astrology. Recently the British Astrological Association wrote to the BBC asking Auntie to be a bit nicer please and stop saying those mean things about us. I signed the thing, because I thought I should support my fellow [...]

Fat Boy, Fukushima and Japan Facing Frankenstein
Godzilla emerged from the depths of the ocean back in 1954, and trashed Tokyo. He may have been a plastic monster in a less than B-movie, but he also symbolised something important. Let me explain. A rather attractive Polish version of Godzilla. Godzilla – as you may recall (I had to [...]

Earthquake Chart
I’ve just been asked to put up a chart for the earthquake, so here it is. As I pointed out before, Uranus is in the last minutes of Pisces, so the planet of surprises leaves the sign of the deepest oceans on a tidal wave. The imagery could not be clearer. I haven’t decided which [...]

7 Good Things to Do While the Sun is in Pisces
In this country we’ve had one of the longest, gloomiest winters I can remember. Right now spring flowers are bursting out, but it’s into a grey, cold world with tupperware skies and a biting wind. Low Tide by Renoir (b. Feb 25). Astrologically it’s a changing time; that is [...]

Valentine’s Day, Aquarius and the Goddess of Marriage
I’ve always thought it more than a little ironic that the day of the year designated for lovers is February 14. After all the Sun is in Aquarius – and Aquarius, as we all know is cool, calm, friendly, intelligent, rational. But passionate? Romantic? Heart-broken? Love-struck? Frenzied? [...]

How Chiron Helped Me Get Healed
Giovanni Bellini‘s Adoration of the Sleeping Child. Let me tell you about the last time Chiron conjuncted one of my personal planets, because it was very lovely. My second baby was just one month old and I was living in the delicious fog of love that descends almost uncannily on so many [...]

Jupiter and Uranus: Last Tango in Pisces
Shade and Darkness – The Evening before the Deluge. JMW Turner 1843 A wall of water ripped through inland Australia tearing up trees, tossing cars and buses like flotsam, swamping houses and taking lives. Today hundreds of Brazilians died in muddy landslides caused by torrents of rain. In [...]

Ghostwritten by Chiron
Jules et Jim (1962). Ghosts from long ago summers. This is a true story, but it’s a little off the wall, so bear with me. I had a kind of waking dream the night before last in which the ghost of an old, old boyfriend came and spoke to me. Now in real life I […]

Royal Wedding Astrology: Juno Lends a Helping Hand
Here’s great-great-great (oh forget it) granny Victoria getting hitched to Albert. Juno (discovered in 1804 but largely ignored by astrologers until fairly recently) is the asteroid associated with marriage – and she’s an obvious place to look if you’re thinking about [...]

The Yin of Capricorn
Winter Moonlight by George Inness captures the stillness of this time of year. The end of December. In the northern hemisphere, the darkest, quietest and stillest part of the year. The time when the earth’s energy is at its weakest and we have a little more time to think – reflecting on the [...]

Death and the Maiden
Death and Life, Gustav Klimt 1911. Death catches up with us all – but in what guise. As a virus? A car crash? Will it come slowly or will it be sudden? Are our days numbered from the moment we are born? Medieval astrologers certainly believed they could foretell the hour of your death. The [...]

Astrology of Now: The Future Is Not What It Used To Be
So it’s been seven years – May 2003 to be exact. What a lot has changed since Uranus, the planet of future forward, went into the final sign of the Zodiac, Pisces. Courreges, 1960s. Well, that was when we thought the future was shiny.Uranus was in Virgo, opposite where it is now. Seven [...]

Korea: Toxic Sibling Rivalry
Poster  for the 2004 Korean blockbuster, The Brotherhood of War. So South Korea is a successful, entrepreneurial (if rather corrupt) Leo Sun and North Korea is an angst-ridden, self-hating Virgo. Sibling rivalry is rarely this toxic. The two countries were born just a few weeks apart on the 15 [...]

Astrology of Now: Coming Up For Air
Ophelia by John Everett Millais. We’ve been deep in the dark waters of Scorpio lately. You may have been diving for pearls, but sometimes it gets quite hard to breathe down there – all that psychodrama can be suffocating. Breathe easy now. Venus slipped backwards out of Scorpio and into [...]
