Azure Magic

I have long loved crystals, some I love for their healing properties, some I love for their beauty, and some I love and I don’t really know why. Very often, a crystal remains on the shelf gathering dust, serving no particular purpose until one day it catches the eye. This is no coincidence, I am sure, for when we look deeper into the ‘meanings’ and ‘uses’ of said crystal, it is so clear why we need it close to us. This happened to me recently. Many years ago I purchased a rather beautiful Aqua Aura pendant. I have always had

The Spring Equinox

As we begin to awaken from the slumber and retreat of the winter, we start to feel the stirrings of new life. As we look within and around us we can see the breathe of life invigorating, energising and revitalising everything it touches. Dawn comes earlier each day, and the Sun leaves later and later giving a wave of solar powered vitality to us all. Spring flowers tentatively reach up into the sunlight bringing with them an array of colour and beauty, birds start to nest and insects get back to the business of being busy. The closer we look

Dancing with the Universe

What a wonderful phrase…but what does it really mean? A Physicist may think that it relates to protons, electrons, quarks and other tiny things that make up the Universe. An artist may connect with the gliding paintbrush across canvas. An astronomer might think of the movement of planets. A night-clubber may think of losing themselves in the music. A gardener may see this when they are at one with the earth planting and growing things. Someone in meditation may see this as their connection to the Divine. Who’s right? Well, in many ways they all are. The Universe is a

The Chiron Return…

In my work I often see trends, I might see a whole batch of people going through the same issue, or who have had a similar trauma in their lives. I also find that the planetary returns come along in batches as well – Jupiter Returns, Saturn Returns and most recently Chiron Returns… Chiron is not a planet, but an asteroid (sometimes called a planetoid). He lives between Saturn and Uranus. It is believed that Chiron did not originate in our Solar System, and that one day he will up sticks and leave again. His somewhat erratic orbit around the

Venus Retrograde

Venus, the Light of Beauty, moves into a retrograde phase today; she will remain retrograde until April the 18th. Venus has close links with the Earth, and her cycle is strongly connected to the Mayan Calendar, 2012 and all that… Intuitively, I tend to describe retrograde phases of planets as times when the energy or ray of the planet becomes internalised with processing or release to be done. Venus’s strongest attribute is beauty, and I wonder if this is now a time to go within to see the beauty that resides there in all of us? Venus’s celestial dance around

February Horoscopes

Aries You are blessed with a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm for life in February, as recent obstacles fall away leaving your path ahead clear and well illuminated. It seems that whom you know is more important than what you know this month, as the celestial gathering of planets in Aquarius highlights teamwork and co-operation for you. So, whilst you are usually one who prefers to go it alone, you will need to be aware of those around you. The good news is that your leadership skills will also be put to good use, so you are likely to
