Astrology Writing Returns in this Critical Time: An Overview

Astrology Writing Returns in this Critical Time: An Overview

  It’s been a while since I wrote on here. I was burned out after writing two books in two years. I hope you have been following my posts on Instagram and/or Facebook. I am also human and 2020 has hit us like an earthquake (we literally had a 5.7 earthquake here in Utah which shook us to our bones), tornado and more. Astrologers all knew something big was coming this year as a plethora of planets lined up in Capricorn with the biggest focus being on the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of January 12th. Other factors are always involved of course and the Venus/Uranus conjunction in Taurus and the Sun/Neptune conjunction in Pisces both happening on March 8th definitely can be associated with the sudden rapid spread outside of China where it began. Thanks to my friend and mentor, Erin Sullivan, for pointing that out. There’s also a very good argument for the fact that Pluto in Capricorn is squaring goddess of chaos and discord, Eris, 5 times over the next 18 months and the first exact square was on January 26th. The other dates are June 14th 2020, Dec 10th 2020, Aug 27 2021 and Oct 8 2021. As Pluto and Eris move so very slowly and were not discovered until 1930 and 2005 respectively so this square is something we have not consciously experienced before. It’s commonly known in Astrology that a planets influence becomes active in our consciousness after discovery. Here we have the planet of death and rebirth and deeper psychological shadow forces, Pluto, combining with a newly discovered energy, Eris that is being revealed to...
The Complete Guide to Astrology! Announcing my New Book.

The Complete Guide to Astrology! Announcing my New Book.

I am so very excited to announce that my second book, The Complete Guide to Astrology, is available for pre-order now. In this book, I took the bold move of integrating the language of an ancient technique into Modern Astrology to give an integrated and inclusive approach for the new paradigm that we are entering. It has long been my belief that the Age of Aquarius is bringing a time where we re-discover ancient ways in a modern way. The fact that Aquarius is ruled by Saturn (to conserve/tradition) traditionally and Uranus (invention/breaking boundaries) is just one of the reasons I have thought so. I have often talked of this with my Cosmic Owl community members (consider joining us), long before this book was birthed. It’s my hope that this book becomes a go to text for beginners that want to use a more inclusive and accessible approach that sees the Cosmos as a living, breathing entity. Here is a part of the conclusion to give you an idea of what this book offers One thing I know for sure is that myths are stories created to represent parts of human nature, so we can see how the binary representations have come about under thousands of years of the patriarchy. Our human need for certainty and definition has caused us to see finiteness and polarity where there may, in fact, be connection and integration. It’s perhaps time, therefore, to consider changing the language completely so that the patriarchal portrayal of masculine as good and light and the feminine as evil and dark disappear and time that the new language...
Astrology of The Taurus New Moon May 15th 2018. Radical Creation.

Astrology of The Taurus New Moon May 15th 2018. Radical Creation.

      At 5.47 am MST (timeanddate.com for local times) on May 15th we have a New Moon at 24˚ 36′ Taurus. Taurus is the sign of physical creation, the natural world, values and the body. It’s in Taurus that we embody that which has come before. 24˚ is a 6 in numerology, the number of intellectual creativity, imagination, union and love. The 6 connects above and below. “The number 6 is the ‘Mother’ number and is essentially a working, building number. It symbolizes responsibility and service which needs to be achieved through love, nurturing and protection. There is an innate desire within the 6 individual to bring harmony, peace, justice and truth to all experiences in life. 6 thrives on beauty and needs to be comfortable in all areas of their lives — emotionally, spiritually and physically. ~http://numerology-thenumbersandtheirmeanings.blogspot.com/2011/05/number-6.html” Relating to Venus and Uranus, The Lovers Tarot Card and Friday, this number is deeply ‘feminine’, as is the sign Taurus, the most earthly of earth signs. Within hours of the New Moon Uranus moves into Taurus for the first time in 84 years. Most of us have never experienced this. Uranus moved into Taurus on June 7, 1934 until October 9, 1934, retrograded into Aries as he will this time and then moved back into Taurus from March 28, 1935 until August 7, 1941. When an outer planet changes signs there is always a big shift in energies. In the 30’s we saw the rise of Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Mussolini and the Dust Bowl. We also had the US Congress accept The New Deal. Of course, other factors were also in play and...
Follow Your Heart: Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 2017

Follow Your Heart: Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius 2017

I’ve been sitting with the Lunar Eclipse chart for ages now (and the Solar Eclipse chart but more on that later). I like to find a central theme that encompasses the whole and it was right there on the wall of my office. The simple sign that cost me a few bucks at TJ Maxx to honor my 15 year old soul part that I have been reintegrating since a soul retrieval session with my friend and Shamanic teacher, Paula, back in January 2015 when I was going through a real dark night of the soul. Follow Your Heart. Sounds so easy right? But we get so tied up in the mind fucks. The constant voices from your upbringing. The family, the culture, the institutions. Those voices in your head that say you don’t fit in because those mind fucks don’t feel right. The constant contorting of the self to fit in or to loudly say, ‘I’m different’. The pain of that 15 year old soul part is back today. Shamanic work keeps working, if you allow it. That girl that knew how unique she was, as we all are, yet who desperately wanted to belong. Isn’t that what we all want? The message of this eclipsing of our emotional body is clear. It’s time to let go of (south node and Full Moon) or eclipse all those mind fucks from your lineage. All those messages that are not yours. It’s time to let go of the need to set yourself apart, to hold yourself aloof, because of the fear of opening your heart and truly following your heart’s...
Another Big Leap

Another Big Leap

I have been thinking about this post for a while. Quite a long while actually. And then I read ‘My Inner Dilemma’ by Dena Patrick and also this newsletter written by my good friend Lisa Wechtenhiser from Practically Intuitive. And I realized, it’s time to get things out of my head and onto paper, virtually. I have always had activist tendencies. As a teen I lived in Northern Ireland during ‘the troubles’ and could see the Catholics point of view against the British Colonists of which I was one (not that I supported any of the violence - just the political views). I would argue their case at the dinner table much to my family’s consternation. Later, as a teen I marched to Hyde Park to protest with the Anti Nazi League. Until recently I have mainly been an armchair activist  followed by being a Facebook activist. And my physical activism faded away for many years as I lost myself in motherhood and moving around the world with my family. I felt I had to ‘tame it’ as an example to my daughter’s. How wrong could I have been. They love seeing me trying to save the world.  When we ended up in Utah in 2008, or rather when I was dragged kicking and screaming from Australia to Utah, I found myself taking and then coaching a Social Media Marketing course with my first ever Mentor. This triggered an intense period of personal and spiritual development, which has really not stopped since! All this, incidentally, happened at the time of my Chiron return, one of THE most painful and challenging but...
