    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…

    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.

    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…
