NEPAL NEWSFLASH! FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT ELECTED! (+ Other Developments)

Yesterday, whilst my brother and I were eating at the ‘Authentic Nepali Kitchen Restaurant’ , we noticed a man filming something going on TV.

Taurus Full Moon, 27 October 2015 (3 Taurus, 12:05 UTC).

Blessings! I’m going to keep this short and sweet as the Taurus Full Moon brings out the philosopher in me yearning to write a book on the various attempts at bridging the spiritual with the material. In a nutshell, that is the key theme of this Lunation: How do we, as Beings of Energy-with-Consciousness, relate […]

The Kalimantan Haze, Breathing Life and The Himalayas: The Start of an Impromptu Pilgrimage

Not the Message you Wanted, but the Message you Deserved: Astrology, Free Will, and the question of WHHYYYY???

The moment we admit that planetary placements have an influence on our lives, the question of Free Will enters murkier philosophical waters. I see free will as a expression of the right to choose, or the choice to make a decision in the first place. We choose how we engage with a certain planet’s energy […]

PALLAS ATHENA SPECIALS: CHARTING THE PATH AHEAD (October 12 – November 4, 2015)

Pallas Athena – conjunct – the Galactic Center is one of my favourite placements in astrology. It enhances the facilitative and transformative potential of astrology in personal growth and awakening. Astrology itself can address just about any question from a person’s life, with some exceptions that are best addressed by other disciplines (Shamanism, Reiki, etc.), […]

Wounded Healer, Wounded Teacher: Questions for Self-Reflection

All of us bear wounds of some kind – be it a sense of pervasive unworthiness, a lack of self-esteem, disconnection, abuse, trauma, etc. Some choose to suppress these wounds and the experiences that shape then – and carry on life as usual, others choose to acknowledge it, and seek healing. Some throw themselves into […]

Mars conjuncts Jupiter (13 Virgo), trines Pluto (13 Capricorn) + Venus opposes Neptune (6 Virgo-7 Pisces) + Mercury conjunct Black Moon Lilith (5 Libra) — 16/17 Oct 2015

Quite a few dynamics to discuss in this report 🙂  Mars, the energy of the Masculine meets Jupiter, the energy of the Guru/Teacher/Mentor in the sign of Virgo, the Priestess/Virgin/Facilitator.

THE END OF THE GREAT GODDESS FIRE TRINE: 11 MONTHS OF AWAKENING WITH THE DIVINE FEMININE (NOV 2014-OCT 2015)

In early November 2014, we began a journey that transformed the way we – as individuals and as a collective – understood the energies of The Goddess and the Divine Feminine. Since then, over the past 11 months, we have (almost continuously) had a series of Grand Fire Trines in the sky, involving bodies like […]
