Growing up, growing old: Saturn’s Return

“My Saturn return is killing me!” Many of my twenty-something clients book their first astrology reading with a version of this mournful cry. Invariably, it turns out they are not only not in their Saturn return, but are months or years away from its start date. I stopped being surprised by this a long time ago. The stress,Continue reading “Growing up, growing old: Saturn’s Return”

The 7th House: Your mirror self

The 7th house in astrology is often called the house of relationship, but should probably be called the house of projection. Or, my preferred technical term, the house of ‘it’s not me, it’s you.’ The 7th house represents all kinds of one-on-one relationships. Spouses, besties, project collaborators and close parent relationships all show up here. Even your worstContinue reading “The 7th House: Your mirror self”

Jupiter into Sagittarius: Finding the hope

Since last October, the planet of faith, truth-telling and savior complexes has been traveling through Scorpio, sign of paranoia, secrets and power trips. Aided by Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter has pulled the veil off large-scale sex abuses, inspiring survivors to tell their stories. But planets don’t have political agendas. Those of us whoContinue reading “Jupiter into Sagittarius: Finding the hope”

Venus retrograde 2018 – Niceness Vs. Realness

Ah, Libra season! Time of tasteful outfits and fair solutions, pleasant birthday parties and sweet friend dates. So relaxing. So sensible. So chill. NOT. Not this year anyway. Libra’s ruling planet, Venus, will be retrograde from Oct. 6th -Nov. 18th. In fact, we have been in the pre-shadow (fade-in) period since early September, meaning it’s already tilting balancedContinue reading “Venus retrograde 2018 – Niceness Vs. Realness”

Saturn, Mars & your career make headway (finally)

Happy Virgo—I mean, Labor—Day! It is a happy astrological time indeed, for the work-lovers among us. For everyone else, the planets are primed to help us get more purpose and satisfaction from our careers. As a Capricorn star-translator, I would be remiss if I didn’t offer a little aid toward this end. Hence, I amContinue reading “Saturn, Mars & your career make headway (finally)”

Making lemonade from Mercury Retrograde’s lemon

*Begin manly movie trailer voice* In a world…where bosses forget to send emails…where text messages never arrive…where computers crash for no apparant reason…and vacation plans change AT THE LAST MINUTE…it’s happening again. Mercury Retrograde: She’s Baaaack! Some of you may be already dreading the Merc rx, others rolling your eyes, but how many of you areContinue reading “Making lemonade from Mercury Retrograde’s lemon”

Cancer is not your mommy, it’s more like having the dog run to yourself

What could be simpler than dubbing Cancers either mommies or man babies? But people are complex animals and the Cancer stereotype doesn’t jibe with the Cancer experience.

Ditch the FOMO, love the drama: Venus-Mars romance

 This post originally appeared on Little Red Tarot. A while back, I was talking to an adored friend about her latest round of love drama. Another long-distance romance that was fun for six months, then fizzled. “Why can’t I have a good relationship?” she said. So of course, we looked at her chart. When I put in herContinue reading “Ditch the FOMO, love the drama: Venus-Mars romance”

Put down that sword, baby: (Queer) love on the planet Mars

This post originally appeared on Little Red Tarot. Mars – the principle of anger and selfishness – is not an easy planet. In classical and predictive astrology, the war-god planet is known as the lesser malefic (i.e. the villain, Saturn’s, mini-sidekick) for its association with conflict and difficult events. Outside of astrology-land, Martian behaviors, like grabbing theContinue reading “Put down that sword, baby: (Queer) love on the planet Mars”
