How to map your transits for 2019 – and why you should.

When I first started with astrology I used to painstakingly work out all my transits. I’d get my ephemeris out and decide what was going to hit me and what date it would be exact. I even used that sort of language – language like “direct hit” or “wallop”. Using language like that it was […]

In the lead up to Christmas I’ll be posting bits and pieces to help you use astrology to set and achieve your goals in 2017…Tuesday Toolboxes, but not always on a Tuesday. I remember Christmas 2006 well. For one thing, it was just a few months before I turned 40 and I was a bubbling […]

the astrology of a full moon meltdown…

So, last night, almost exactly as the Moon was full, I had a meltdown. It was a meltdown fitting for a Cancer Full Moon…it was cyclonic, it was also, in retrospect, textbook for the transits the Moon was making to my chart. We’ve talked before about how transits of the personal planets, including the Moon […]
