Sunday musings: Follow your own path

As an astrologer, there are many different roads to travel.  Some astrologers prefer writing to client consultations.  Some like to teach.  Some follow the more traditional paths into medieval, Renaissance or Hellenistic astrology.  Some explore newer ideas with evolutionary astrology or human design.

My path has always been one of personal transformation, effected through writing and therapeutic personal consultations.  I have Gemini (the sign of communication) rising, my Leo Moon is in the third house of communication, and my Mercury (planet of communication) is in Scorpio where I like to go deep into the meaning of things, and in the sixth house where I like to use that knowledge to help people.

In today’s world of social media there are so many ways to tell your story.  For nearly 15 years this blog has been my mouthpiece, and despite rumors of the demise of blogging it is still a viable platform.  In an effort to remain relevant, I’ve stretched my story into Instagram and Youtube to see whether those outlets would be useful.  It’s been an interesting adventure, but for now I’m staying in my own lane of writing and demonstrating the magic of astrology through stories of people and events that shape our world.

I’ve always heard, and know it to be true, that when you follow your own path you attract just the right people to follow that path with you.  I’ve been told I’m a good public speaker, but I don’t love it.  What I love is writing and channeling just the right words to tell the astrological story of the topic I have chosen.  Over the years I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to speak to […]

Astrology in my world: Sunday tribe poetry

“Tell your story.
Shout it. Write it.
Whisper it if you have to.
But tell it.
Some won’t understand it. 
Some will outright reject it.
But many will
thank you for it.
And then the most
magical thing will happen.
One by one, voices will start
whispering, ‘Me, too.’
And your tribe will gather.
And you will never
feel alone again.” 

–L.R. Knost


I found this poem in a wonderful Facebook group called “” and it really resonated with me because of my current Saturn transit.  All of us are experiencing a tightening of the conjunction between Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (total transformation) to some degree.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn.  This week I’ll be writing a comprehensive post about this alignment, which just gives us a sneak peek this summer and culminates in 2020.

Anyone who has planets between 18 and 26 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries will be affected more personally by this planetary alignment (if you want to know how you are affected leave your birth data in the comments and I’ll tell you), and I am one of those people.  I have four planets in those degrees, including my own Saturn/Sun conjunction.  This Saturn/Sun conjunction is a rough challenge that often brings a deep sense of loneliness and isolation.  The beauty though of Saturn is that if you can live through the difficult early years, the years after midlife are so much easier.  I […]

Astrology in my world: How to make a decision

Librans, of which I am one, are famous for not being able to make a decision.  We easily see all sides of a situation, and in a discussion over a point we can convincingly argue for one perspective as well as another.  In my house a conversation like this with my double Pisces husband, who dislikes taking a stand of any kind, is very common:

Me:  What do you think about my doing X?
Rich:  Well, you have always wanted to do it.  Maybe you should do it.
Me:  Yes but then all of these other things might happen.
Rich:  Probably better not to do it.
Me:  You don’t think I should do it?  But I really want to.

You can guess how the rest of it goes.  Pretty much the same until one of us gives up. 😀

In my younger life I was tortured by the idea that there was a right decision and a wrong one for virtually everything, and if I made the wrong decision in the minefield of decisions to be made my life would explode before my very eyes.  I know a lot of other people feel the same way which is why psychics and intuitive readers are in such demand.  The problem is, nobody can make a decision for us or tell us what to do.  We must come to the realization in our own hearts and souls.

In my astrological practice, people often come to me for a reading because they need or want to make a major life decision.  Should I quit my job?  Should I marry this person?  Should I leave my spouse?  Should I move to another location?  Often we see a planetary cycle underlying these questions.  Saturn (tests and challenges) or Pluto (destruction and regeneration)  […]

Sunday inspiration: Cut the storyline

This week’s Cancerian New Moon eclipse opposed transformative Pluto which is in an exact square right now to a complex system in my own natal chart that includes Saturn and the Sun.  I have been turning inside out as the energy of Pluto demands that I remain aware of the churning emotional and thought patterns that struggle to emerge and be released, just like little daemons I have carried with me throughout my life.  The retrograde travel of Mars is a great ally in this struggle to break free of the captors that hold our heart prisoners, but sometimes the battle distracts us from the Truth of surrender.

profoundly spoke to me, and perhaps it will speak to you as well.


When you find yourself overwhelmed by habitual, ruminative thinking; when the repetitive thoughts and feelings are cascading and looping; when you are caught in the trance of disembodiment and self-abandonment… just stop.

With the power and presence of the warrior’s sword of compassion, cut the storyline. No, not this time. This time I choose differently.

Slow way down and feel your feet on the ground. Breathe deeply into your lower belly and activate your senses. See what is around you with clear vision, enter into pure listening. Shift your sacred life energy out of the spinning and into the aliveness of the body. While it may appear otherwise, the safety we seek is in self-attunement, self-compassion, and holding the visitor as he or she appears.

It is an act of kindness to not fuel the dysregulating narrative, and takes practice, courage, and curiosity. Something is erupting under the surface, longing to be integrated and allowed back home, but it […]

Astrology in my world: The falling away of things I know to be true

Art from

Astrology gets a bad rap for being unable to reliably predict the future. The fact is, while astrology reveals the underlying order of things, it does not reveal the future.  Through astrology we can know when there is potential for difficulty, but everyone experiences these cycles differently, and they are experienced differently at different times.

As I write this today at the end of November, I have just found out that a brilliant astrologer that I have worked with over the years, Dawn Bodrogi, just died.  In her last news letter she wrote that her mother had recently died just after a New Moon in the progressed chart, and Dawn had a New Moon in the progressed chart at the time of her death.  A client recently also had a New Moon in the progressed chart at the time of death.

When we think of New Moons, death is not the first thing we predict!  A New Moon marks a new beginning – the old way is falling away as the lunar phase wanes to pave the way for a new start at the New Moon.  Often there is a fundamental change at the core of our being, or a move to a new location.

In my own chart, Jupiter (beliefs and meaning) is in a powerful square to Pluto (power and intensity).  This dynamic typically suggests someone who holds on tightly to their belief system, and there is a self-righteous quality to it.  When I have a strong feeling about something, my confidence in that belief never wavers.  98% of the time this confidence is well-placed and serves me well.  But when we are so rigid in our beliefs and what we think […]
