Turning Point 1711 – Insight into the Origins of Britain as a World Power

This period centering around 1710 to 1711 was clearly a major turning point in British, European and world history. Astrologically too, we can see clear signs of the turning of a page, or the planting of a seed.

The Outer Planets – To Use, or Not to Use

So when I began to leave out these outer planets, it felt a little bit like riding bare back. It felt uncomfortable, as if I was missing something. Right now I'm not entirely sure which way to go, which isn't good, because I want to affirm my astrological philosophy after all these years. It is good to remain open minded.

Rethinking Astrology: A Yearning for Simplicity

I have been fascinated by astrology since my mum brought home a woman's magazine from the sad clear out of grandma's house back in the 1970s. The publication contained one of those very basic sun sign forecasts which we are all familiar with. The slight difference with this one, was the little write up at the top of the piece regarding ruling planets. From that point I was hooked.

Astrology Musings: the Creativity of Victor Hugo

Writer, poet, dramatist, novelist, essayist, painter, architect, critic... his creations include 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame', and the novel 'Les Miserable'. Few creative geniuses of the 19th century - or at any time - were as eclectic as Victor Hugo.
So what made him tick, astrologically speaking?

2020 Vision: A Landmark Year? Astrology Musings

Saturn and Capricorn stand for the existing political structures. Pluto, by its very nature, is said to be transformative, at best a difficult though necessary cleansing, at worst a drastic enforcer of change which threatens to bring down, or rip up virtually everything - root and branch.

Intriguingly, this conjunction falls close to the Moon's south node, which has strong karmic associations. What might this mean?

Mozart – Sheer Genius – Astrology Musings

Uranus is often equated with genius, amongst other things, and being exactly conjunct the south node, it symbolises a born genius, someone who has inherited some astonishing, unusual gift. However, it is one thing to have the potential, quite another to realise it. Thankfully for all of us, his talent was spotted early.

Stockhausen: Neptune, Uranus and the Nature of Genius. Astrology Musings

Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the most important composers of the 20th century, was also one its most controversial. The outer planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are generational in influence, but if one or more of them touch sensitive parts of our birth chart, they can put us in touch with powerful trans-personal energy. According to … Continue reading Stockhausen: Neptune, Uranus and the Nature of Genius. Astrology Musings
