Digestion & Discretion…

Maybe the hardest lesson to learn at the moment is that whilst we all have friends and mentors to guide and support us on our journeys in life, it is time to realise that the journey each of us takes through life is unique. By all means listen to the words of others, but don’t be spoon-fed – we need to find out for ourselves, listen to our intuition and be guided by our higher Self. Like any student – regurgitating someone else’s words is empty and without meaning. The only true way to learn is to digest and form

Baggage…

It seems that the somewhat relentless flow of personal challenges are reaching a peak now, which is great news for many of us who are almost buckling under the pressure. This has been a testing time, and it seems that by being gently ‘forced’ to cut out the inessential in our lives is paying off. Life is beginning to seem lighter now and more in focus. It’s not even that a sense of clarity has emerged; as for many of us the path ahead still seems vague and undefined (akin to someone trying to get a picture into focus –

The Fringe Benefits of Failure…

‘Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure, but the world is quite eager to give you a set of criteria if you let it…The fears my parents had had for me, and that I had had for myself, had both come to pass, and by every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew…Now, I am not going to stand here and tell you that failure is fun. That period of my life was a dark one… I had no idea how far the tunnel extended, and for a long time, any light at the

Discombobulated…

I have had to check my diary a few times this week, just to make sure that it wasn’t September and Mercury had gone retrograde! It has been a week of miscommunications and hiccups when it comes to getting things organised. Frustrating would be one way to describe it… The build up of retrograde celestial energy is reaching a crescendo, and yesterday’s New Moon stirred up the Sacred Dance (retrograde Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter), and in addition Mars is facing up to retrograde Pluto for a clash of will and release of energy. So, this seems to be behind the

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Someone up there seems to have pressed the fast forward button. Life is moving so rapidly at the moment, there is a real risk of nausea from the spin. I thought at first that it was just me – rushing around like a headless chicken, not being able to take even a brief moment to stop and breathe. But after speaking to countless others ‘on the path’, it seems to be a common theme. The build up of energy from the retrograde planets seems to have reached a peak of intensity, and is causing a feeling of ‘melt down’ within

The Donkey In The Well

Have you heard the story about a man who had a donkey? The man didn’t have much, but he had a donkey. One day, the donkey fell into an old abandoned well on the farm. The donkey, being a donkey, kicked and kicked. When that didn’t seem to help, it brayed and brayed. It kicked up a fuss and made a terrible commotion, but no one came to help it. The donkey was exhausted and resting wearily against the side of the well, when its owner first noticed it was missing. The owner became concerned as to the whereabouts of

July Horoscopes (archive)

Aries You have been in fast forward mode this past few weeks, and the pace of life continues to surge ahead full throttle as you enter July. You love high-energy times, yet at the same time you can become so focused on the ‘highs’ that you can take your eye off the ball. Try to stay focused this month and do try to be aware of the people around you – some of whom seem to support and nurture you, whilst others seem happy to feed off your energy reserves. Whilst you may have lots of energy, if you let

Planet Whispering…

Someone asked me recently what inspires my writing on here – do I simply interpret the movements of the planets or is there more to it? Well, I guess the answer to both, is yes! I have trained in traditional astrology, and so I can (and do!) interpret charts, planetary movements and cycles, but on the whole I tend to work more intuitively with astrology these days. I trained in Experiential Astrology several years ago, and this approach made far more sense to me as it brought the energies of the planets to life. I see the planets and the
