    What a fool believes…

    Today’s new moon in Sagittarius is likely to trigger some sense of moving on from whatever started in the summer. Pull your proverbial socks up and start planning ahead for the next lunar cycle, which will be solar eclipse in the sign of Capricorn on December 26th, followed two weeks later by a lunar eclipse in Cancer on January 10th.…

    Perception & Deception

    It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that’s not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything. ~ Stephen Colbert, Host of The Late Show Perception has ALWAYS been everything, dear Stephen. For people who are convinced that there is something fixed in time and space called a…

    Changing ways

    The world is feeling pretty crowded these days with the tensions and prickliness that seem to have become the default mode of relating to each other. (I know that some of you dear readers are a bit tetchy about the astrology stuff, so I won’t refer much to it here, but for the rest of you, bear in mind that…

    Not your normal Sunday

    What is that nagging void? The ongoing mild frustration that won’t shake off? Why is there no more joy in my job/marriage/life?

    Where Sensitive meets Sensible

    We are each somewhere on the spectrum from being so highly sensitive to what is happening day to day that we are unable to function fully in the world we created around us, or at the opposite extreme, where we become so hyperactive, and perpetually busy - even if only in the mind - that we have no time or…

    Time to turn the page!

    Today’s New Moon in expressive Leo is strongly influenced by Venus, symbol of abundance, money, relationships, and what we enjoy in life.

    The yoga holiday from hell

    I'm moving this month so I won't be traveling, and since much of my attention is focused on the comings and going of my kids and the contents of my home, I decided to share a holiday story from my book. It helps to remind me that it's not always a bad thing to just stay at home.

    Momentum and growth

    We are six months away from a big pivot point in the greater scheme of things. Old patterns - personal, social, individual, collective - are evidently dysfunctional and need to be interrupted. Eclipses always interrupt patterns one way or another, so try releasing old ways and habits in a conscious manner which responds to what you already sense needs updating.
