The Venus Diary

The 13th January as Mutable Fire Venus octiles Cardinal Earth Pluto Ah, the complex weave that you spin along the path of the Heart. Love battles with lOve; friendship battles between unconditional acceptance and conditional expectation; lovers merge, their bodies becoming one, but yet remain alone and lonely, distracted by their own unloveableness, unable to…

The Gold Diary

The 11th January as the Cardinal Earth Sun conjoins Cardinal Earth Pluto Just as you thought it was seen, further layers are peeled back and you are left wondering – will it ever be truly healed? That elephant… How did it get there? Why has it returned when it was ‘seen’, discussed and rehomed? Yet…

The Venus Diary

The 5th January as Fixed Water Venus trines Mutable Water Chiron Despite being trained to live within a monochrome world – you have a single life purpose (unchanging and ever constant); you will meet the One and live harmoniously and happily; will have a place in the world that best suits you; you will have…

The Venus Diary

The 4th January as Fixed Water Venus octiles Cardinal Earth Saturn Each of us carries a poignant story around our damaged sense of worth, often hidden beneath an impenetrable wall masking a raw and vulnerable heart who is only seeking acceptance and lOve. That story is seldom shared, as pride, self-judgement and shame sit on…

3rd January as the Cardinal Earth Sun sextiles Mutable Water Neptune “There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself though it is always secretly there.

The Two Books

The New Moon in Cardinal Earth (Sextile Neptune and located between Saturn and Pluto) The climb to this place, akin to Frodo Baggins and Sam Gamgee’s assault of Mount Doom in Mordor, has been monumental. After much labouring, ascending many a treacherous track, having explored too many cul de sacs and having had to ford…

2nd January as the Sun and Saturn conjoin in Cardinal Earth More important than the arbitrary calendar rebirth is today’s cazimi conjunction and parallel of the Sun and Saturn in Cardinal Earth, a conjunction that occurs every year when the Sun reaches the same celestial longitude as Saturn, but it has not happened within Cardinal…

The Gold Diary

1st January as the Western calendar year 2019 begins I was never one to celebrate the change of calendar as a child. Plagued by the pang of deep Irish guilt as an adult when surrounded by an ocean of revellers on the 31st December, enthusiastically counting away time, eagerly anticipating a dawn that would miraculously…

The Venus Diary

Fixed Water Venus octiles the Mutable Fire Sun As past emotional patterns revisit your heart, as the person you have been is seen within those memories, as the subtle extent of the scripts of your familiar ancestry have been revealed, so too has been the disconnect between how you feel you should live and how…

The Turquoise Diary

Cardinal Fire Uranus octiles Mutable Water Neptune Nothing feels solid. But that is okay. It is not meant to be. As the Veil thins, as insight continues to abound through your ability to numb and distract yourself from the massive contradictions that make up your personality, this time can feel disorientating, unfamiliar and uneasy. It…
