After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

Wow, wow wow is all I can say. Repeatedly. What a year. I feel a bit like the Queen of England when I say what an annus horriblis (horrible year) it was! I’m English though so I can get away with it. And I am the Queen of my own world. So, you know. Or more like horrible 18 months or two year even! Or even three years for some parts of it! Not all bad of course but, man, that Uranus/Pluto square was tough. And transformational. And bumpy. And shocking in some ways. It’s not completely over yet. Uranus and Pluto will pull apart but then Uranus will turn retrograde at the end of July and by January they will only be a degree apart again. But the effects are fading. It’s time to assimilate all the changes and the lessons. And, as Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, squares Pluto tomorrow, the 7th April, and conjuncts Uranus in Aries the next day before going cazimi (into the heart of the Sun, ie exactly conjunct) with the Sun on Thursday, April 9th. And Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance and good fortune is trining all this and turns direct on Wednesday April 8th when the Moon is in Jupiter ruled Sagittarius! What does all this mean? BIG forward movement. BIG ideas. BIG messages. BIG voice. BIG firey energy. And all of it forming a Grand Trine to my Jupiter and then Sun in Sagittarius in my twelth house. Can I just say yummy and I am ready for this. It’s time to speak. You have been looking at...
“I Have A Quick Question………”

“I Have A Quick Question………”

Well there you have it. The New Moon this morning at 0 deg Sagittarius was conjunct my Mercury exactly and I get the urge to blog for the first time in a long time. Mercury being the planet of communication and teaching. And in Sagittarius which makes it all about truth! And in my eleventh house of groups and causes. I expect this urge to grow even more as Saturn enters my eleventh house also on November 30 and then again when the Lord of Karma leaves Scorpio, where he has been teaching us many many inner lessons since October 2012, and enters Sagittarius on December 23. Also conjoining my Mercury! So what, am I drawn to write? Well it’s not exactly astrology per se. It’s about my work as an astrologer. It’s those quick questions. The ones that say ‘can you explain what so and so in my chart means’ or ‘I am having a hard time, can you take a quick look’ (they are the hardest!) They come by private message on Facebook and Twitter mainly. Occasionally by email. And even by Google Hangout messages. After all this time working online I still feel a constriction in my throat when these messages arrive. The old fears of saying no. I have a nice reply prepared now and do use it. But I STILL feel bad as I hit send. Will they hate me? Will they never come back for a reading? All false fears of course. But here’s why I choose to answer none of these questions. If I answer one person I feel I have to answer other...

Summer Solstice 2013

As we approach the summer solstice of 2013 I am drawn to remember the solstice of the year 2000.That year the solstice was at 2.48pm GMT on the 21st. A short time after this I woke up in labor with my second child. I had a magical (yes really) labor. I labored all day at home with only a TENS machine, a couple of puffs of Gas and Air and a birthing pool for pain relief. I walked around our English garden stopping to lean on my husband every now and then when I had a contraction. I ate some homemade soup when I felt a little peckish. It was truly magical. Alice Victoria was born in the birthing pool at 5.05pm. The birds were singing outside the window and I could hear the kids playing next door. Her second name is Victoria after my Grandfather, Victor, whose birthday was also June 21st. He died many years before but it seemed to be fitting that she carries his name. Why do I tell you this on the eve of this solstice? I want to talk about how I felt that day. I was not an ideal candidate for a home birth, apparently. I was 40. My first pregnancy had ended in induction, an epidural, forceps and a baby that had to be given oxygen before I could hold her. This time I was determined to have no intervention. I learned all I could about the birth process. First time round I had relied upon the medical profession to teach me this. They didn’t. I withheld small niggles from my...
