We are in the midst of an interesting and somewhat intense cosmic climate. Whilst the overwhelming feeling is positive and life affirming, the energies are chaotic and bewildering; unsettling and unnerving even the strongest among us. Already in 2011 we have witnessed Jupiter and Uranus move in Aries, and Neptune move into Pisces. We have had a super moon, and Saturn and Pluto are both retrograde. Individually these events are significant and life changing, but cumulatively they add up to far more than the parts alone. Jupiter is on a mission to re-ignite the creative fires within, and Uranus is

The Dragon Stirs

Today, the 23rd April is St George’s Day. St George was best known as the slayer of the dragon. It seems fitting that the dragon energy is now resurfacing all over the world through energy (ley) line work, personal empowerment and a collective raising of the spiritual consciousness. In the Far East Dragon’s were carriers of wisdom, strength and knowledge. Yet in Europe, they became linked to evil. Perhaps the evil was free thought, strength, wisdom and knowledge? Elementally, Dragon’s unite earth, air, fire and water, they are powerful, spiritual beings bringing us the ability to follow our own beliefs

The Phoenix Re-Awakens – Part 2

Neptune moving into Pisces has already created a huge shift in the lives of many, a deep sense of re-awakening, renewal and re-emerging is deeply apparent. It is as though we are waking from a deep sleep and suddenly seeing the world with fresh eyes. Everything and everyone seems different, changed. This can be hard to understand, but it seems clear that this shift is part of the collective shift towards more holistic and joyful living. Whilst the journey to our ultimate destination may be paved with challenges and obstacles, it is important to keep the belief and the faith

The Phoenix Re-Awakens – Part 1

The undercurrents of change are growing ever stronger these days. With Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Aries, Uranus in Aries and Saturn and Pluto both still retrograde, there is a sense of a huge global shift going on physically, emotionally and spiritually. Who we are, what we are, where we are going etc are all under the spotlight now as we begin to realise that we are in fact the masters of our own destiny. Mercury retrograde is an ongoing reminder for each of us to be aware of the power of our thoughts as they create our reality. Who

Pluto Retrograde

On the 9th April, Pluto goes retrograde until September. Pluto, the planet of transformation, change and regeneration remains in Capricorn. As always, retrograde Pluto reminds us to accept change in our lives. As one thing comes to an end, a new cycle begins. Pluto is the transformer, and in retrograde his energies are turned towards inner change and transformation. There seems to be a potency and intensity about Pluto when retrograde, almost as though the energy ray becomes more concentrated. This in turn leads to a sense of pressure for each of us to go within in order to let

Neptune enters Pisces

Neptune enters Pisces today (4th April), for the first time in almost 150 years, Neptune comes to the sign where he feels most at home. This is but a brief visit (he moves back into Aquarius into August whilst retrograde), but Neptune will be back home again from 2012. Albeit brief, this visit by Neptune stirs up a huge well of compassion and emotion within, his watery fluidity combined with the fluidity of Pisces allows for a greater awareness to develop of the interconnectivity that weaves us all together. In many ways this marks the beginning of a spiritual re-awakening

Mercury Retrograde

Little Mercury moved retrograde on the 30th March. This little planet is quite a powerful influence that so many of us often overlook. Mercury gives each of us an opportunity to focus on our thoughts, and in particular to explore how we think. How often do we berate ourselves? And how often do we congratulate ourselves? Hmm, see what I mean?! It is all too natural for most of us to think in terms of negatives – ‘I can’t’, ‘yeah, but’, ‘life is hard’, ‘nothing is easy’, ‘I am fat/skinny/poor’ etc. As I have written before, the irony is that

The Cosmic Mixing Bowl

Mars moves into Aries and Vesta moves into Aquarius today. Both are little powerhouses, and continue the hugely powerful and quite profound roller coaster ride that 2011 has become. Fiery Mars moves into fiery Aries, a sign it rules to muster up even more fire, energy and passion. There is a need to stoke up the fires within to re-connect to our drive and zest for life. We all have plans and goals, and the time has come to explore these once again. Mars doesn’t do procrastination, nor does he do indecision, so it is time to have the courage
