Last night, I sat in my small home with a handful of students, reading and embodying each others’ charts, with the intention of helping each other heal. As we journeyed together into the depths of one souls’ chart, the sky darkened outside and the Full Moon rose and shone down on us through the window. And I felt like, this is Chiron, this is Libra, this is Aries, as we hold each other in this space of healing, as we support each other on this journey, as we delve into our wounds for the sake of understanding.

This energy feels to me like silence. Silence, not as nothing, but as the most profound experience. I’ve been meditating for many years, but in the last few days I’ve experienced some of the most profound moments of silence and presence and stillness. And then for a moment everything makes sense and there is nothing to know or understand or say. Read More
The vision on the mountain top is Pisces: knowing the truth of love and oneness, but without the wherewithal to integrate that into daily life. The daily grind is Virgo cut-off from its Pisces polarity. To integrate them is to live in wonder while folding the socks, to remember our interconnectedness while doing our taxes, to soften into the moment wherever we are. Read More
This is an opportunity to reflect on and heal from trauma in a supportive environment. It’s also an opportunity to begin anew. To consider our hopes for the future, to make new connections, make new friends, and start or join new organizations. Read More
Leo, ultimately, signifies the journey of the soul, through creative pursuits, and erotic adventure; learning through its many mistakes and inadvertent woundings of others, arriving eventually at its source, the wellspring of creative/erotic energy. The treasure of the epic Lion’s quest is the true and uninhibited expression of this raw vital energy, yet, tempered by the compassion Leo gains through its adventures and misadventures. Read More
The other night, I was overcome by this profound wave of emotion and knowing, inexplicable and unverifiable, yet undeniable, this feeling of: we are gonna fucking do this. It felt like, collectively, we hadn’t really decided if we are up for the challenge. We hadn’t really decided if we are willing to be fully in our bodies and to face the wreckage of the past thousands of years…. Read More
Let’s gather together, loved ones. Let’s honour the darkness within, from where our vision grows, and let’s celebrate the return of the Sun, the lengthening of the days. More and more I feel like community is everything. How will we overcome? There is only one way. Together. Read More
Is it getting louder, brighter, bigger? That’s Sagittarius. What a lift in the mood after Scorpio (even if Mercury and Venus are still there). Don’t get me wrong. I love Scorpio (actually, it’s my favourite). But we all need a break at some point. We’ve been underground for a while, and goddess, the sky is beautiful, now that we’ve come up for air. Read More
Gemini holds the key to resisting dogmatism; its gift for curiosity. Curiosity keeps us engaged and lighthearted even in difficult times and enables opening to new ideas and ways of being. If we can be curious about perspectives other than our own, and about our own patterns and resistances, about what drives people, about how trauma shapes us, and so on, then we will be able to learn and grow from even pain. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it may just save this horse. Read More
This Scorpio New Moon marks a new beginning in intimacy. As we come more and more into the knowing that we are not separate, we turn toward each other, we turn toward home. We see that our isolation was self-imposed. We accepted shame, that lethal gift, that lie, that holds us apart. And because we accepted it, we can lay it down now.
Now we know. We are intricately, intimately, entangled with every other being in existence, whether we wish it so or not. The universe is an open system. Every move, every breath, every thought, ripples through to infinity.
It’s time to come home. It’s time to come together. Read More
We have a choice: stay stuck in this box, in this system, with all this injustice and inhumanity. In which case, humanity may not make it. Or to break open the box. But what is outside of it? We can’t possibly know. We’ve been held in this box for so long. We hate it in here, but we’re used to it. It’s all we know. So, this is the choice we face: to stick with what we know or to face the unknown, where maybe, just maybe we will find freedom. Read More
We have been told that anger is violence. We have been taught that anger is unbecoming. We have been led to believe that anger is not spiritual. When in reality the guise of false peace that passes for our societies is brutal. “Peace” is the true brutality. Anger is love. Rage is the right response to the realization of our collective history. If you are not angry you are complicit in the oppression and the continuation of the violent structures of old. Read More
