A New Awakening…

Well, it’s almost upon us (the 26th June) – The Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse and The Cosmic Cross. Also at this time is a Grand Kite formed between Pluto/Moon, Sun/Mercury, Chiron/Neptune and Pallas Athene (who has just moved direct). Traditionally astrologers see Cosmic (Grand) Crosses as challenging and foreboding. I tend to view them somewhat differently as I believe that with a whole host of squares and oppositions, there is a lot of friction (energy) created, giving each of us a great deal to work with. I believe that such Crosses are great opportunities to bring about change and movement

The Summer Solstice 2010

The 21st June 2010 marks the Summer Solstice, and the beginning of a week of huge Cosmic shift. Also this week, we see Pallas Athene move direct, Mercury entering Cancer and the Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse and Cosmic Cross. For today though, it is time to celebrate the Summer Solstice! The Summer Solstice (also known as the Longest Day) is marked at the moment that the Sun enters the sign of Cancer each year in the Northern hemisphere. The Sun is at its highest point in the sky and all of nature is full of energy and growth. It is

The Dreamer & The Healer

Neptune and Chiron are conjunct and are both now retrograde. I touched on this a while ago, but promised more… Neptune is in late Aquarius, and Chiron is in early Pisces, and together they are taking each of us on something of a spiritual revolution. Neptune is the planet of mystery and intuition, and Chiron is the planet of healing and also of compassion found through suffering. This conjunction is highlighting the need to go within and to find our own personal and unique connection to God or The Divine. As unique Beings, no two people are alike, and it

The Rebel & The Wise One United

Jupiter and Uranus are now in perfect conjunction, both in Aries creating a great deal of energy and electricity. This union continues for many many weeks, dipping back into Pisces after both planets move retrograde next month, and then surging forwards again later in the year. Jupiter is the planet of wisdom, success, abundance and expansion. Uranus is the free-thinker, the individual, innovative and rebellious. Combine these with the raw creative fire of Aries and it is clear to see why this is such a powerful conjunction! Of course, Jupiter and Uranus form a vital piece of the T-Square (and

The Wise One & The Adventurer

Jupiter enters Aries Today (the 6th June), mighty Jupiter enters Aries. This is a powerful combination of energies which fire up Jupiter immeasurably. Jupiter represents wisdom, abundance, success, expansion, good fortune and new horizons. Aries is the adventurer full of raw creative power, courage and ‘va-va voom’. Together there is a sense of each of us being fired up to take steps into the unknown, to have faith and to create abundance, joy, adventure and success in our lives. For many, exploring new horizons is a fearful experience, and not something to relish; yet it is through these new horizons

Healing The Trauma Within

Chiron Retrograde Today (the 4th June), Chiron moves retrograde. This powerful little asteroid plays an important role in our lives, yet he is still overlooked by a great many astrologers. Chiron is the wounded healer, and in myth was an immortal wounded by a poisoned arrow (when Hercules accidently scratched him with an arrow poisoned with the blood of the monster Hydra). Unable to die to end his suffering and unable to heal himself, he instead used his pain and suffering to help and heal others. Chiron therefore shows us our own ‘incurable’ wounds or traumas and the ways in
