” A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault.” – John Henry Newman
Just as sure as the sun rises, it also sets.
Leo season is officially over, and the warmth and radiation of the limelight has now given way to Virgo’s claim. We’re now in the season of the harvest.
Like the energy which surrounds the Virgin, this time is ripe with certainty, but minimal fanfare. Virgo presents an offering of humility in order to balance the ego, which is ever present in the previous sign, Leo. On a collective level, the process of order and refinement of the personality is necessary.
Let’s deal with first things first.
We must address the notion that the Virgin, which symbolizes Virgo, is some holy-rolling, chaste…
We have a magical collection of bottles and smells, essences and extracts in our house, and a small army of little brown dropper bottles to mix them in.
I have just mixed and sprinkled Juniperberry (for protection from negative thoughts) and Thyme (for courage and prevention of nightmares) on little Wilf’s pillow.
He wouldn’t go into his bedroom: he was too scared. He’s the only one of the five to succumb to bad dreams and he doesn’t have nightmares often, but when he does they’re humdingers. If they get enough of a grip over him, he will not settle until I have sat on his bed, smoothing his hair, talking to him about the humdrum qualities of the world outside; the rain on the pavements, the halo of the streetlamp, the headlights of the cars passing our sleeping …
I would like to understand this phenomena. You don’t like your wife or you don’t like your husband. You complain incessantly, you wish you’d never met them, they are bane of your existence and just in general, you feel they are worthless.
Eventually they leave you and whoops! Someone else snaps them up!
Now why are you so pissed? Why do you come unglued and/or try to destroy them? What do you care? Really. Why. Do. You. Care?
Today on the boards – Jupiter Rx
When the astronomer Ptolomy was alive, only five planets plus the Sun and Moon had been discovered. Ptolomy believed these bodies circled around the Earth in this order: Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn.
Ptolomy was also a geographer and created this map of what was thought of at that time as the known part of Earth:
Today the planet Jupiter turns retrograde. This means that from our perspective on Earth, it looks like Jupiter is not moving at all. Some astrological associations with the Planet Jupiter are long distance travel, higher education, and large systems of knowledge such as philosophy and law. When a planet turns retrograde this can signal a time to focus inward, so in …
I just told a client that compromise was going to necessary. With Saturn in Libra, this is true for all of us in one way or the other. That’s what all the weighing is about. Is it worth it? Should I give up this to have that? Should I make this decision, considering I am this other age? Etc.

“Why join the navy when you can be a pirate?” Steve Jobs
Especially if Johnny Depp is your co-pilot.
Let’s say pirates are unconventional, rule-breaking mavericks. (Not cut-throat criminals in need of a wash.)
We’re talking metaphorically here.
In contrast, the navy is all about obeying orders, being part of the fleet, asking no questions.
Pirates = Uranus
Navy = Saturn
Being a pirate (at least in the movies) is all about making it up as you go along, navigating by the stars, flying by the seat of your pants and reinventing yourself as required.
Being an able seamen means knowing and understanding the rules of the sea, being part of a team, being able to use your tools properly, and keeping your ego under control.
Astrologers are, of course, traditionally ruled by that old wizard Saturn…
Pluto in transits are hard to talk about without scaring people. Pluto regenerates. It is deep and dark can seem ominous. Pluto also represents death. If you’ve ever dealt with death you know that the death of someone close takes you apart. Some are devastated and don’t come “back” as easily as others, but some seem to roll with it pretty well. Those are usually the people who have Pluto prominent in their charts, already have an innate understanding for the energy in some way.

You’ve been given a creative license. You discover personal power by risking being a clown, an entertainer or a wild card, to break free from group expectations, logic and conformity. Your central purpose is to burn with creative passion. You shine through your personal contribution to any creative process. Coming into your own requires finding the courage to face any rejection that may come when you offer up something special within yourself to the scrutiny of the group. Attaining self-realization means being wary of ego-maniacal behavior. Being you means remaining young at heart.
What we play is life.
I am having so much fun performing, I feel almost guilty. I think, my God, I hope no one comes and busts me for this.
We’re entertainers, while people want us to be
