Is Life ‘A Simple Game’? The Visionary B-Side from 1968 — Astrology Musings

This is one of my favourite Moody Blues’ songs, composed by keyboardist Mike Pinder in 1968, at a time when the world was convulsed with anger, riot, division, assassination and talk of revolution. *Please take note of the lyrics.

Released as a B Side to ‘Ride My See-saw’, and later covered wonderfully by The Four Tops, I think this song captures the mood of the time — but most especially and prophetically, of our own time, all these years later. It’s a call for clarity, truth and justice. But most important of all, it is visionary.

This fantastic song did not appear on one of their albums until the 1974 double disc, ‘This Is The Moody Blues’.

The Great Mutation into Air Signs

I think we are, right now, ‘on the threshold’ of a more free, social, meaningful and humanitarian age. The birth pangs are all around us, symbolised in the sky by the up and coming Great Conjunction and Great Mutation, that is Jupiter and Saturn conjoining closely at 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21 2020. This marks the first transition of this Great Conjunction fully into the Air Element (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) since the early 13th century. This new Age of Air will last around 200 years and will transform our materialistic civilisation.

Many people thought the Sixties were such an enlightening time, that we were entering the so-called Age of Aquarius, but I contend this was wrong, spurred on by the false, illusory trends of a social revolution. Amidst all that manufactured chaos of the late Sixties, ‘A Simple Game’ appeared, a truly hopeful and visionary creation that speaks to us all the more now.

But times of transition are always difficult, fraught and often protracted. I wish Godspeed to us all on this new and hopeful journey.

Astrology Has an Interesting History — Class Warfare Blog (Reblog)

Astrology goes way back so I assume it has a pre-history (going back 6000+ years or so) but there is little we can learn about such beliefs before there were written records of what they were. In any case we can learn two things from this long-standing belief. For one, people looked up and studied […]

*Astrology does indeed have a very interesting history — and it has diverged into many differing forms in recent times. Yet, speaking as an astrologer myself, I contend that the philosophy behind it is essentially correct.

Getting to Know You – What’s Your Sign? — Smorgasbord Blog Magazine (Reblog)

Originally posted on Jessica Bakkers: We start to get to know one another pretty well here in our little community. We share stories that come from the heart, putting our purest, deepest selves down on “paper”.

Astrology and Health (part 1) — Astrology Musings

Astrology and health do go together, each sign of the zodiac is traditionally associated with a part of the human body.

The twelve signs begin with Aries and end with Pisces. Logically, when you visualise a human form, we start at the head and end with the feet, top to bottom. From that simple correlation, we can, for example, deduce that Aries ‘rules’ the head and Pisces the feet.

Interestingly, the Ram, or Aries, is known for butting heads – a battering ram, so it may not be surprising to find out that the head is often a weak point of this sign.

Similarly, if you look down at your feet, maybe you can imagine the glyph of the Fishes, or Pisces, which bear the whole weight of our bodies. Poor Pisces has to take on so much!

In this series of short articles, I will explore the health associations with each sign, plus how health issues can relate to factors in our far more individual birth charts.

*** It is very easy for us to neglect our health but during times like these it is especially wise for us to stay healthy and watch what we eat.

Royal Leo – The Centre of Attention

Untitled-1 (3)

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, its ruler is the sun. Leo cannot help but be regal and is therefore associated with royal families, royalty in general, as well as celebrity.

With the sun being ruler of Leo, this sign likes to shine, be the centre of attention just like the sun itself.

But if you think Leo is at all overbearing, just remember how generous he or she can be too. After all, Leo is the sign of ‘love, luck and life’. It’s about experience, enjoyment, taking part. Sport! And the fun of children.

Most especially Leo loves to enjoy – and we could all do with enjoyment right now.
