Happy New Year – again…

Well, today is the Chinese Lunar New Year – it is the New Moon (and annular solar eclipse). Lots going on for a quiet day in January… It’s strange because today ‘feels’ much more like the New Year than the 1st January this year. The past few weeks have felt particularly heavy and hard work, but this is lifting now – a light is emerging and joy is shining through. Hope has been renewed. Of course, we are now in Aquarius – the sign of brother/sister hood, humanity, creative intelligence and individuality. Building up in Aquarius is a celestial party

Dazzled by Dragonflies…

The Dragonfly has been on my mind a lot this past week. Of course, this is not because they are around as it is the wrong time of year, but I have been seeing them in meditation, and thinking of them whilst writing and working. They have only a short time in flight after they reach adult phase – a few days. But they certainly make the most of this! It’s speed, colour and agility, makes this little wizard a magnificent totem. Dragonfly has a strong connection to the air – simply because of its ability to hover and play

Mercury Retrograde

Well, here we are again, Little Mercury is in a retrograde phase. This current phase started on the 11th January 2009 and lasts until the 1st February 2009. This is the first of four retrograde phases this year. Most years we see three, but in 2009 and 2010 there are four in each year. Another interesting pattern emerges with the first three Mercury Retrograde phases all starting in air signs, and ending in Earth signs. The fourth both starts and ends in earth. This first and current retrograde phase with Mercury gives us the opportunity to reflect on our thoughts

Pluto in Capricorn – A New Era Dawns

I have been asked to re-post my thoughts about Pluto in Capricorn… It is hard to comprehend just how much life has changed since the last time Pluto was in Capricorn. Some may feel that we have moved onwards and upwards since that the mid-eighteenth century, and in many ways of course we have made progress, from longer life expectancy to curing many illnesses, but if we look at the developing world today, these issues are still a major problem, not to mention war, famine, global warming, abuse of resources and the massive power/wealth divide across the world. Power is

Butterflies on my mind…

Another New Year begins. Today the Butterfly has been drawing my focus, this could be that it features heavily on my second website – soon to be on-line, but it goes deeper than this. The butterfly is about transformation – the caterpillar into the butterfly. It reflects the never-ending cycle of life. It is connected to the ability to let go of the old and embrace the new – maybe the new year? But again, it seems to go deeper than this. Maybe more importantly, the butterfly is the power of air – the power of the mind. When we

January 2009 Forecast

Aries ♈ You start the New Year under quite a lot of pressure in different areas of your life – you almost feel as if you are doing a juggling act, but at the same time those around you are trying to distract you (maybe deliberately, maybe not) by throwing extra balls at you to juggle with. If you can keep your cool, then all will be fine and you will realise just how capable you are of handling the pressure. If you get frustrated or buckle under the pressure though, the balls are likely to end up scattered in
