The Venus Diaries on the 6th June as Cardinal Water Venus opposes Cardinal Earth Pluto and Mercury conjoins the Sun in Mutable Air
How deep is your lOve?
It is easy to love and lOve during the calm; it is easy to express joy and jOy in the good times; it is easy to give and give again. But can you receive; are you able to stay the path of lOve during those crazy, intense moments when your path descends, the colour fades and the light dims? Is the lOve within bright enough to continue to shine when the ground beneath your feet becomes uneven? Can you still find your vOice to air what your heart feels, even when those feelings are un-sanitised, raw and deeply felt?
In a time when so many challenges are being faced concerning love, relationships, quality, fairness, purpose, belief and justice; when you feel you are carrying values that are alien to those in your world; when you feelings are coloured by shades other than the bias towards those bright and shiny, remember that darkness absorbs everything, as form dissolves and identity falls away and despite the festered of thorns, your tears that cascade over your wounds, will wash away your hurt and in time will free your heart from those ancestral scripts, cultural legacies and personal patterns that puppeteer and colonise you.
Remember that you are never alone and that the pain you feel has purpose if you can accept it and in time look beyond it to what it is teaching you – as your love transmutes to lOve, compassion metamorphoses into cOmpassion, and the grace of transfiguration heals your wOunds.
What you are moving through will, in time, pass. But please talk openly, as we all descend and ascend; we all hurt and heal; and the pain you feel, your confidence to confront it can help others to similarly walk over ginger ground.
Astrology has been my sole source of income, my way of being and the way that I live since discovering it on the 17th Jan 1993. Self-taught, I did sojourn with a correspondence course with the Faculty of Astrological Studies under the tutorship of Christine Tate-Wheeler, completing three of the four year training modules in a little under a year. However, I never sat the exams due to my commitments to seeing clients and running a school of astrology called The Dublin Astrological Centre.I’ve been ever so fortunate to have attracted people who wanted to work with me from the very beginning of my path and I’ve worked with clients intensely on a daily basis since 1994. I have a varied clientele, located all over the world, and have worked privately with individuals and corporately with business, sports clubs, political parties and religious institutions for over two decades. My practise is based in my office in Blackrock, Dublin, Ireland, from where I write, divine, create and see clients in person or via ZOOM.Until the time of my movement onto my current path, I was reading Geography in Trinity College, Dublin and playing football, two additional passions I still have today. I currently reside in Greystones, Ireland with my family. My life-partner and wife, Karen, walks the same path as an astrologer and we have two children, Sarah and Maya. Together we run the Blue Rose, a school of astrology and spirituality and have students all over the world who download our classes, join in via ZOOM or attend in person.
My focus is evident in my extensive public writing. I am interested in helping people develop a deeper confidence in their commitment to what they lOve and living what they love. And I would lOve to share my passion with you and to work with you concerning what you love.I look forward to working with you.
