With a new lunar cycle just underway, and a new solar cycle about to begin at the Vernal Equinox on Tuesday afternoon, these are good days to make serious plans for what you want to create in the weeks and months ahead, and start taking action this week.

The Indian festival of colours known as Holi is celebrated at the first full moon of Spring,…

    Eclipsing old networks, associations and goals?

    Eclipses form a part of a larger cycle spanning about 19 years, so with today’s Partial Solar Eclipse (15/2) we can look back to February 1999. Significant themes in your outer and/or inner life will appear to be cycling around once again, since these current Eclipses are activating the exact same spots in your chart as 19 years ago (there…

    Puppy love

    As much as Valentine’s Day can be a really sweet time, I can’t help but cringe as it rolls around each year.Β  Is it the commercial overtones? The awkwardly out-of-character expressions of love? Are we all going through the motions to avoid seeming like we don’t care? My inner rebel has always been conflicted about Valentine’s Day because I don’t…

    Total Lunar Eclipse – Where were you last summer?

    Today’s Full Moon is also a lunar eclipse, and because the moon is also at perigee (the closest it gets relative to the centre of the Earth) it’s a bit bigger than usual, which is why it’s also being called a super moon. Plus, being the second full moon in a calendar month (we started this year with a full…

    Another Big Cycle of Endings and Beginnings

      Following on from its conjunction with Monday’s inspiring new Moon in the last degrees of Sagittarius (December 18th), Saturn moves into a very potent alignment (known as cazimi, the closest possible conjunction) with our Sun in the early hours of Wednesday, December 20th when it enters its home sign of Capricorn, one day before the Sun marks the winter…

    New moon, new impetus for change

    Today the Moon meets the Sun in Libra beginning a new month-long cycle which will especially reveal issues in relationship – how you handle them and with whom. Uranus is directly opposite the Sun and Moon, meaning that outcomes can be very different to what was expected.Β  Either way, relationships will be changing a lot around this time – either…

    Gratitude and non-attachment

    There is a lot of change happening in my life lately (I know I am not alone in this experience, but hey, this is my blog!).Β  Big changes have marked my entire life and each one has brought a leap forward in understanding and personal evolution. Yet, all around me, people are saying or writing things to me such as…

    Fear is a sign to come home to yourself

    Fear seems to be a major driver in our world these days and adds to a generalised feeling of instability and upset that requires constant examination and rebalancing, lest we get sucked into the turmoil. A couple of weeks ago, following a series of tests on my beleaguered hip, an orthopaedic surgeon recommended operating as a way of resolving the…

    Impermanence is the fountain of youth!

    When effort is needed, effort will appear. When effortlessness becomes essential, it will assert itself. You need not push life about. Just flow with it and give yourself completely to the task of the present moment, which is the dying now to the now. For living is dying. Without death, life cannot be. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (Important message at…
