    When the Universe Says No

    Have you ever had one of those times when everything seems like it’s going wrong? Where no matter how hard you try, it just doesn’t seem to be working in the way you want it to? I have. These past months have been crazy. Everything that could have possibly gone wrong has gone epically and disastrously pear shaped; my work, my home, my relationship, my sanity. I’m sure you’ve been there too? Perhaps you’re there now? I’m not just talking about the little ebs of life, or the odd hurdle, I’m talking ground zero. Starting again from the bottom up. Where nothing you once clung to is safe, or even…

    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…

    11 Ways to Boost Your Witchy Powers

    So you’re already pretty intuitive, but how can you boost your witchy powers to the point of actually manifesting the things you want? These are my 11 favourite ways to enhance your spiritual prowess and get you feeling like a goddess almighty.   1. Meditate This one’s a no-brainer. When you meditate regularly you clear your mind of waffle, fluff and ego babble, making way for clarity and connection to the divine. The famous magician, Aleister Crowley, talked about the need for a “united will” for magic to be successful and meditation can help you learn about where your will is divided. Then, once you’re aware of these deeper personal…

    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,…

    Why “Freedom” is Not What You Need

    When we talk about freedom, in these big lofty airs, we’re basically saying we want it all. We want to be able to choose what we want, when we want, but then we want to change our minds if we don’t want it, and we also want all the other options to stay open to us, just in case we do decide to re-decide, if you get what I’m saying here?

    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…

    Hands up who loves a magpie? These clever little birds hide a whole host of quirky traits beneath their flamboyant feathers, and some of them are just brimming with magical energy.
