    A Virgo’s Guide to Everyday Ritual

    What is it about ritual that we need so desperately? And I’m not talking about the kind of ritual that you might be thinking: all costumes and secrecy and dancing around fires and whatnot, although they can be fun too. What I’m talking about is the little seemingly meaningless things we do every day that help us get by.

    A Case of the Uranian Non-Conforms

    I have a really challenging Uranus placement. I say “challenging” because, astrologically speaking, all challenges are actually a gift, even when its feels like they’re royally screwing you over. It’s not Uranus in itself that’s the problem. I’m a big fan of everything it represents – kooky crazy wacky old me. I love those Uranian vibes. During a particularly influential Uranus transit, I’ve been known to go full rebellion – dye my hair, start a revolution, quit my job… and that’s where it gets “challenging”. You see, when I was little, I didn’t much like authority. I was the kind of kid that was smart, perhaps too smart, and school…

    Venus in Libra: Softer Than Satin

    On August 6/7th Venus moves into Libra – a sign she likes verrrry much, so ala the queen of love, money and relationship aesthetics herself, Lana del Rey, here’s my take on the shift complete with matching Lana gifs (I know right, incredible).   Beauty queen style The pro: With all this Venusian energy in the air, we’re bound to get a little boost in the beauty regime. No more pj days for a while (or if you do, you’ll want them in satin and lace baby) – Venus in Libra likes the finer things in life, not only from a superficial point of view, but because it feels good…

    Chiron Retrograde: Awakening the Wounded Healer

    Not another retrograde?! You may cry in dismay, but before you get your pretty little head all in a tizz, I’m here to tell you that retrogrades are actually pretty handy, and in particular Chiron’s retrograde period (till 2019!) is gonna help us to bust some serious blocks, like a planetary Pacman, eating up all our ghosts and helping us find those sweet sweet cherries. So, first up, what IS Chiron? Chiron is actually an asteroid, rather than a planet, and it has a 50 year orbit, so usually, unless it’s well aspected in our charts or we’re having a transit to one of our personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury,…

    Never Good Enough: Sun in Virgo in 2nd

    What the fuck is wrong with me? I just do not feel settled. Maybe it’s because I need to be working on something constantly or I tend to go a bit off. I’m not one of these people that can spend days lounging around without a purpose, I find it impossible. Even when I’m relaxing, I choose an activity that I feel will progress me in some way: non-fiction usually, or a classic movie I know I should have watched already, a book that will make me think, give me ideas for my own ends. I never just be; relax for the sake of it. It’s like I’m constantly running…

    QUICKIES: Leave Mercury Retrograde Alone

    **QUICKIES are short but sweet truthbombs to satisfy your urge in your tea break**   Mercury Retrograde gets such a bad rep nowadays, it’s like Britney circa 2007: seemingly crazy, totally unpredictable and everybody’s talking about it, BUT in my books, old Merc Ret (does that work, no I don’t think it does…) is actually totally misunderstood (just like poor Britters) and is really here to help us fix up look sharp.   So how the hell do we do that? Well I’m glad you asked, cos it’s time for some tough retrograde love:   🔥 Wake up: this is no time for sleeping and hoping prince charming will come…

    Aries Season, Springtime and Finally Finding Our Flow

    Venus and Mercury have just moved into Aries, finally giving us the kick up the a** we need to turn our thoughts and desires into reality. This is the beginning of spring, the equinox, the time when everything begins anew and the past season’s sleeping and dreaming and planning is turned into action. The year begins now, I bet you’re busting at the seams to finally get going?

    Super Blue Blood Moon: Reclaiming Self-Care Sovereignty

    Hands up if you are busy with a capital B?! I know I’m not the only one who’s got tiny tasks coming out their ears and what feels like a to-do list that literally never ends. I’ve noticed over the last few days that not only am I chronically busy, but I also seem to put all of my own needs last, and not just last as in “I eventually got around to it”, but last like wayyyy down the ever-growing list. Let’s be honest, it’s pretty much never getting done. And when I say “needs”, I don’t mean nice things like: taking a luxurious bubble bath or getting my…

    Aquarius Season: Break on Through to the Other Side

    As the Sun and Venus moved over into Aquarius, I couldn’t help feeling a little disappointed. The hype from Capricorn season got my juices flowing, but if anything, I went slower than usual, got less done than I expected and practically floated through January in a confused haze. It was only when I decided to meditate on the changing of the seasons that something twigged: it’s meant to feel like this. We’re planting a seed, not raising a tree yet. Don’t bloom before you bud January, from the point of view of the western seasons, is a time when nature’s groundwork is laid for future growth. Roots keep on digging…
