    Simplify, simplify, simplify

    I recently had lunch with a spiritual friend who helps to keep me sane and questioning things. I wrote the latest astrology blog before our meeting, but I now want to underline its message even more since he has confirmed that many spiritual sages have been conveying the same things.

    WTF Life?!

    Yesterday’s total lunar eclipse in Leo triggered issues of self-expression and individuality and how that fits with what society wants or seems to require.

    Change and Permanence

    I’m back in Rishikesh after several years’ absence, slowly taking in all the remarkable changes (I hesitate to say developments) that have happened here since 2013. The local businesses are being crowded out by bigger commercial ventures and chains of cafés and restaurants that render the small city a more homogenised version of itself.

    What do you believe?

    Today we honour the New Moon in Sagittarius, which sets the scene for taking action and maybe even taking risks on big new ideas and plans following a bit of a lull in enthusiasm over the past few weeks. No need to wait for 2019 – the energy is here with us already and we can set ourselves up to…
