As Pluto is the God of the Underworld, the one who took Persephone down into the darkest place, he has a difficult reputation. Yet this week’s stunning alignment between the Sun and Pluto redeems the feeling that even in this ancient myth, Persephone reached transformation through living with ‘the demon’. It’s only when we get to experience the difficult times in our lives that we realise how resilient, powerful and strong we are. That we come through with so much wisdom.…
Overview Mercury (information and communication) enters Libra on September 2nd. Libra is the sign of relationships and balance, so all exchanges of information will emphasize negotiation and compromise, as well as old fashioned politeness. The social game … Continue reading →…
I don’t think people change at all. But I think the debate that goes on in this area is mainly semantics. You don’t plant a carrot and get brussels sprouts. You get a damn carrot… or you don’t, if you don’t water it. The carrot you get is terrifically reliant on the treatment it gets. (…)

On Friday, September 5, Venus’s wild ride in fiery Leo comes to an end and she goes on a much needed retreat in earthy Virgo. What started out on a high note when Venus conjoined Jupiter in Leo went sour when she ran into Mars and Saturn in Scorpio early this week. Venus is resilient in Leo and by the time she enters Virgo she should have recovered much of her usual optimism.
Because Venus is exalted in Pisces, it is considered to be in its fall in Virgo. Quiet, reserved Virgo is a far less exciting place for [...]…
Robert Frost’s poem Choose Something Like A Star will probably appeal to poetry lovers who also love astrology.
