Chiron – The Wounded Healer, The Shaman, The Alchemist

You may wonder what’s all this fuss about Chiron. If you are familiar with Chiron in your natal chart, or have been following your Chiron transits, you already know how powerful Chiron is. Its influence is undeniable.  Just like Pluto, Chiron is tiny but mighty. Because of its strategic placement – between Saturn and Uranus – Chiron plays a key role in our natal chart. In fact, Chiron’s symbol is a “key” – and not by coincidence. Chiron is the KEY that can unlock our chart.  In Astrology, Chiron stands for: Our Deepest Wound Holistic Healing – which only happens when we integrate the wound  Our greatest gifts and talents – which only become gifts when the initial wound is healed  You may already be familiar with the “Wounded Healer” archetype. However, th...

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 21 – 27, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – There is a more unstable edge to March 22 however as Mars moves into a square with Uranus. Yes, Chiron is still there in the background but the Uranian influence brings in impulsiveness and a tendency to leap from the frying pan into the fire. Our actions can lead to unexpected consequences so it’s important that we don’t just react, leaping to defence or offence, before assessing the situation we find ourselves in and figuring out a strategy. This is also an accident-prone aspect, most often because we’re moving too fast to pay attention to where we’re going or what we’re doing. Much as it might irritate us, deliberately moving a little slower, especially if we’re frustrated or angry, will help to mitigate this energy. Given that Mars is in Uranus-ruled Aquari...

Full Moon in Virgo March 2022

Full Moon aspect patterns – Thor’s Hammer and Kite The Full Moon occurs at 07:17 (UT) on March 18, 2022 at 27°Vi40′. The Sabian symbol of this Full Moon is one that I wish it wasn’t. It’s A Bald Headed Man Who Has Seized Power. I know that the vast majority of us are going to leap to some conclusions about what that might mean. It feels uncomfortably resonant with our current situation in Europe. If you would like to know more about how the war ties in with the astrology of the times, check out this article Saturn conjunct Pluto Revisited – War, Deconstruction and Crisis In a symbolic way however, this Full Moon Sabian asks us to think of the idea of ‘seize the day’ – carpe diem. If we dial down some of the anxiety around the imagery, and bri...

Full Moon In Virgo – The Voice Of Reason

On March 18th, 2022 we have a Full Moon in Virgo. Full Moons happen in the signs that are opposite from the Sun. We are now in the Pisces season, and we have a record number of planets in Pisces: the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune.  What happens when we swim into too much Pisces energy? It’s easy to get lost in Pisces’ fertile field of endless possibilities.  To balance things out, every Pisces season we have a Full Moon in the opposite sign of Virgo. Virgo is that part of us that is down to earth and remembers to set the alarm at night and makes sure we have enough food in the fridge.  The Full Moon in Virgo will remind us of the practical realities of our everyday life. If we want to achieve those crazy Piscean dreams, we also need Virgo’s practicality and attention to detail.  Rul...

Weekly Astrology Forecast – March 14 – 20, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – March 20 is an important date in the astrological calendar as the Sun enters Aries heralding the beginning of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and marking International Astrology Day! In the Pagan calendar, this is the festival of Ostara. At equinox, night and day are equal but after this date in the Northern hemisphere, the days will be longer than the nights. Light triumphs over dark and Aries gives us a burst of energy and a yearning for new adventures and experiences. This is a time of beginnings as Aries is the first of the signs. Aries energy is all about initiation, going after what we want, pushing ourselves forwards like flowers in spring cracking pavements. ******************************************************* The full weekly forecast is available ...

Saturn conjunct Pluto Revisited – War, Deconstruction and Crisis

Pluto is Lord of the Underworld, Hades, ruler of death, closure, endings, rebirth, regeneration taxes, sex, war, corruption, power, violence, abuse, crime, the collective shadow, the occult, wealth. Pluto roots out that which is rotten, old, outworn. Pluto strips us bare, reveals the truth. Pluto shows us where our true power lies. As a transpersonal planet, its effects are collective and generational but Pluto’s movements can feel deeply personal. Under his intense pressure, we are crushed, reshaped, reformed, made even more precious just as carbon turns to diamond. Pluto is both Devil and Saviour. Pluto rules Scorpio. Saturn is Lord of Karma, Grandfather Time, ruler of boundaries and borders, institutions, castles, rocks, reality, authority. Saturn is the rules, the regulations, the cloc...

Weekly Astrology Forecast March 7 – 13, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – Accompanying Hygeia’s station retrograde is the Sun’s conjunction to Neptune. It’s possible that the combination of these aspects could leave us feeling a little vulnerable. Neptune dissolves boundaries and barriers and it can feel like we are losing our sense of identity. On the plus side, the Sun conjunct Neptune can be a wonderful time to give back or pay it forward. Whether it’s a donation of time or money to a worthy cause or a helping hand for a community project, common bonds bring a sense of connection. We could also find themes of artistic expression or spiritual practice emerging as we float on the collective pool of the unconscious. If life has lost its meaning for us, this may be more evident under this influence, but it provides the perfect planeta...

Weekly Astrology Forecast February 28 – March 6, 2022

Excerpt from Patreon – On March 5, the Sun forms its yearly conjunction to Jupiter. In Pisces, this is a billowing sail blowing us across a vast ocean, a huge swell of feeling. Jupiter lifts us up, up, up and away. Generally, this is thought of as a ‘lucky’ day as Jupiter is the bringer of joy. Sometimes that can be the case if we are willing to broaden our horizons and hold out our hands for life to gift us what it can. But there can also be a tendency to go too far, to get swept up so high that we lose sight of ourselves. Jupiter conjunct the Sun can also speak of big egos, huge personalities. There may also be big events that capture the world’s imagination with Pisces involved. Some anchoring is necessary to make the best of this aspect. ******************************************...
