Astrology of Now: Inferno to Paradise
A huge fire whirl, sometimes called a fire devil, roars down a road; people are incinerated in their homes; the sun is reduced to a glowing orange ball behind the smoke; chaos. Spin the globe, blood-red flowers drip from lamp-posts, memorials, statues; wrap around park benches, line streets, [...]

“Why You Will Marry The Wrong Person”
This amusing and insightful talk by philosopher Alain de Botton is a wonderful demonstration of a Sagittarian at full throttle. Brilliant, of course, persuasive and wide-ranging, offering tons of good advice — also, overwhelming and a bit of a know-it-all. I’m posting today for [...]

Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season was a pleasant one for you. As of today we are into the swing of the new year: already the bulbs at the end of the dining table — paper whites and hyacinths — have bloomed and their sharp green leaves are an augury of spring; my [...]

Anthony Hopkins: Darkness Visible

Venus in Sagittarius: Animal Magnetism
Jean Seberg in A Bout de Souffle (1960). Sweet and sexy. Scorpio Sun, Venus in Sag. I’ve been looking at loads of pictures of actors with the planet of attraction in the sign of the centaur – and I have to say the stand out quality which they all share is sex appeal. Gerard Depardieu, [...]

Sagittarian Self Portraits: Half Human Half Beast
Lucien Freud, Dec 8, 1922. Not someone you’d want to take to tea with grandma. There’s a darkness to Sagittarius. Often it’s hidden behind a bold front – a big belly, a tornado of talk or just loudness. Sagittarius is the first sign of the zodiac to be represented by a [...]
