DETACHMENT AND THE ILLUSION OF FORM: RELEASING THE FEAR OF FEARLESSNESS – A NEW CHAPTER IN MY PATH BEGINS

In the past two days, I have felt a complete shifting of tack, or a turn in direction I hadn’t anticipated heading into so quickly: Detachment. This isn’t to say a lack of love, or compassion (far from), but a single minded focus upon the tasks that I have to do at this time. And […]

JUNO IN CANCER OPPOSED PLUTO RETROGRADE IN CAPRICORN; 7:58 am, August 30th 2014, 11 Can-Cap 08′, GMT + 8 (+++ Wedge with Vesta)

VENUS/LILITH IN LEO SQUARES MARS/SATURN IN SCORPIO: An analysis

PART 1: GENDER STEREOTYPING IN LIFE AND ASTROLOGY

Sex and Gender are different concepts. Your genitalia does not tell you to behave a certain way, you are conditioned into it and/or predisposed to certain behaviors through your biological hardwiring – nature / nurture both exert their influence. Certain branches of academic feminism make a wonderful case for defining the relationship between sex¬†and gender […]

THE BACKLASH HAS BEGUN: GODDESSES, PRIESTESSES, WITCHES – STAND YOUR GROUND WITH GRACE AND POWER!

All around us, we see signs of suppression, of rising hostility towards the Divine Feminine and Spiritual Paths and Persons who honor Her in ways that challenge deeply rooted patriarchal norms. Whether it’s the abuse of ISIS, or the mis-guided morphing of Goddess Kali Ma’s image with the spectre of religious extremism… Whether it’s the […]

A friend of mine asked me to elaborate on the concept of ‘honoring the body’. We’d had a conversation a few weeks ago where I discussed some practical steps to generally improve the state of one’s health: healthy food, exercise, adequate sleep – the stuff that we all consciously know and (hopefully) try to incorporate […]

For those of you wondering why the energy has shifted somewhat – the Near-Grand Sextile that we’ve been feeling has momentarily broken. As Juno continues her movement through Cancer, and Mercury speeds away from her – the trine between them ceases to be. Within the next few days, a new trine – and so – […]
