This year the Sun rolls into Virgo accompanied by its ruler, Mercury! The over-heated atmosphere of the past couple of weeks will gradually cool down and hopefully the inflated rhetoric will too. Virgo is noted for dealing in facts, not speculation or drama as Leo often does. Leo can inject drama into the most mundane events and with Jupiter squaring Uranus fueling Leo’s love of embellishment, it has been a very trying time.
On Saturday the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Virgo will be exact, bringing us the promise of clear, analytical thinking. Neptune [...]
Perhaps the best attitude to approach this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 5° 46′ Scorpio on 25 April 2013, 12:58 PM PDT with is respect and reverence. Powerful archetypes are at work on this lunation representing deeply primal feminine mysteries, the kind it does not pay to anger. The Taurus-Scorpio axis has strong associations with the natural world and its cycles of life, death and rebirth.
After a couple of very fiery lunations the Scorpio Full Moon is quite a change featuring a preponderance in earth and [...]
Next week is the Spring Equinox on 20 March here in the northern latitudes (Autumnal in the southern) and it is a dynamic one! The transition from watery Pisces into the ultimate fire sign Aries is jolting at best and this year even more so.

The new zodiacal year begins when the Sun leaves the dreamscapes of Pisces for the bright morning of Aries. [...]
Since Uranus entered Aries in 2010, it has been vigorously promoting change of all kinds, both peaceful and otherwise. One area I’ve noticed increasing change in is the publishing world. The advent of Amazon’s Kindle and other tablet reading devices has changed the way many, many people read. More and more people buy and use these handy little e-readers every day. Naturally the demand for books formatted for reading on them has picked up too.
When Jupiter in Gemini came on the scene last June, the reception of independently published writing improved. Jupiter rules publishing among other things [...]
My first look at the chart for this Full Moon at 07° 06′ Cancer on 28 December 2012, 02:22 PST made me wince because Pluto in Capricorn conjoins the Sun and Uranus in Aries creates a T-Square with the lunar axis. However after further study I realized this time we may have a window of opportunity to shed light on the issues brought to the surface by the Uranus-Pluto square and perhaps begin to resolve some of those.
We’ve had Venus and the Sun in Libra as well as Mars in Capricorn trigger the [...]
