Life, Love, and a New Moon in Libra

Life, Love, and a New Moon in LibraWe may be beset with all kinds of desires, passions, certainties and non-negotiables at the moment. Ice cold clarity is in the air. We are seeing, perhaps for the first time, the truth of our lives, of the false selves we have worked so hard to sustain, and the real Self neglected in the wings.

Preparing to Begin: January 2016

Preparing to Begin: January 2016This January is very much a month of getting down to business whether that means sorting out cupboards, paying outstanding bills, catching up on correspondence or deciding, once and for all, which bits of our life we’re definitely going to sort out his year!

August 2015: Small Acts and Tiny Steps Carry Great Power and Profound Influence‘Gently does it’ is probably the best advice for the coming month, not to be confused with ‘don’t do anything’, which is most definitely not! There’s much to be done throughout August, as we initiate action on some of our recent plans, remedying a lack of earth energy since mid May. August may begin to feel like something of a ‘back down to earth with a bump’ month!

Independently Entwined: Venus Retrograde 25th July – 6th September 2015Venus in Leo is flamboyant and demonstrative, passionate and radiant, but in the subtle shaping hands of Virgo she knows that the most reliable self-confidence is born of detailed self-knowledge: familiarity with the twists and turns of one’s psyche and their influence upon our well-being and relationships. When retrograde, Venus reveals the underbelly of those relationships...

Mercury Retrograde and The Great Attractor

Mercury Retrograde and The Great AttractorMercury stationed retrograde at 1:44 am GMT on 19th May 2015, and remains in its own sign, Gemini, throughout its retrograde passage. Practically speaking, this is an inquisitive Mercury, seeking information and answers, reviewing events of the past three months, wondering about relationships and connections with others and generally taking stock and sorting through unfinished business. It efficiently clears the decks of outstanding matters, enabling positive progress in the months to come.

Keeping It Real and Anchoring Deep Truth Into Our Every Day Consciousness

Keeping It Real and Anchoring Deep Truth Into Our Every Day ConsciousnessThis month’s astrology has the feel of Fresher’s Week at university, when arriving students are oriented to their new life. Choices abound and the air is heavy with potential and possibility. Excitement is everywhere, fuelled by a new-found freedom alongside anxiety, homesickness and sometimes a hefty dose of fear. We are those students and life the university.

Wiping the Slate Clean

February 2015: Wiping the Slate CleanFebruary looks set to be one of the most powerful months of the year. The change demanded by the burgeoning Aquarian Age blows apart preconceptions and prejudices, challenges long held notions of right and wrong and upholds Truth with a capital ‘T’ in the face of half truths, deceptions and lies so cosy and familiar we barely know they’re there...

Inside Out Change

Times They Are A-Changin’

September 2014: Times They Are A-Changin’After the intense pressure (both positive and negative) many have experienced during August, September 2014 comes as something of a relief! It offers a break of sorts during which we can catch our breath, take some time out and settle into our ‘new normal’.

Super Moon, Super Month!

August 2014: Super Moon, Super Month!The first week of August 2014 is characterized by a combination of sensitivity and inner drive which could turn us into something of a martyr if we let it, but come August 4th, Neptune begins to lend a helping hand reminding us that sometimes the best progress is made when we take our foot off the accelerator and allow...

2012: Nemesis or Enlightenment? by Mike Bara

Paying Attention: Signs & Wonders

Paying Attention: Signs & Wonders, article by Mike Bara

As I look forward, I (like the Maya and the Hopi long before me) feel change in the air. We all want to know what will happen in 2012, and the truth is that what will happen is already happening. The number of unusual astronomical events taking place in the next couple of years (all of which were known by the Maya centuries ago)...


The main thing to note is that transiting Pluto is located at the Ascendant point of the USA chart. Pluto is a planet which has an astrological significance of profound destruction and, in the wake of that chaos, potential for renewal and rebirth.
