Expecting affairs of the human heart to follow the rules of logic and reason is a recipe for dissatisfaction. Don’t ignore underlying problems in your relationships, but seek solutions not with your brain, but rather with your heart. Sit knee to knee with the one you love, and peer into your relationship’s wondrous fathoms through your own “glass-bottomed boat.”

Saturn’s your personal coach, kicking your ass all the way to the finish line. When he’s done with you, you’ll be huddled in a corner, weeping – or else stronger and more glittering than you ever imagined you could be.
We don’t tend to think of Gemini as a demanding sign, or as one of strong convictions. But the Sabian Symbol for this Gemini Moon offers a portrait of someone who refuses to be subservient. The same message can be seen in the Sun and Moon’s close trine to Saturn at this New Moon: it’s time to claim your authority and to speak up for things that matter. It’s time to take yourself seriously….
Last December, Mercury turned retrograde at 6 Capricorn, near Pluto. At the time, I wrote about Mercury drawing us into the “darker woods” of ugly truths about ourselves and our world. The work of self-examination we did then holds us in good stead today, as Mercury turns retrograde again. This time, Mercury’s turning point is […]
In this eclipse chart, Saturn in Libra is a Jacob Marley figure (Saturn rules business, and Libra represents partners), contesting the single-minded ambition of the Capricorn with a single question: What good are achievements if you have no one to share them with you?
mercury rx darker woodsOn Friday, Mercury turns retrograde at 5.58 Capricorn. The Sabian Symbol for 6 Capricorn is, I think, a beautiful and exciting one: “Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods.” The logs can be the things that are blocking your mind, and powers of perception, from seeing the truth. But lay them out in a certain way, and they can also serve as steps that take you deeper into the darker woods.
Mercury is turning retrograde in a conjunction with Pluto and the Moon’s North Node, and the combination is, I think, related to telling some ugly truths – about yourself, about your world. Sometimes loss and shock and grief open up channels of communication that can’t be opened any other way.
The New Moon in Taurus is on Thursday, May 13, 2010, at 6:04 pm PDT, 9:04 pm EDT, at 23.09 Taurus. A Vengeful Heart Mom loved westerns – adored Gary Cooper and Audie Murphy – and she loved the West, with its wide-open spaces and the freedom they represented, freedom to start over as someone […]
The Sabian Symbol for this Scorpio Full Moon is “A dentist is hard at work,” and I think it speaks eloquently to the deep, difficult, often painful nature of Scorpio and its ruling planet, Pluto. I started going to dentists at the age of five, and I’ve never feared them. I’ve been fascinated by the […]
At the Quarter Moon phase, the Sun and Moon form a scratchy square (90 degrees) aspect with each other; it’s an uncomfortable aspect, symbolizing the unconscious mind at odds with conscious will. But squares do tend to propel us forward in a way that easy aspects don’t. Conflict with others – as well as unresolved […]
… until you learn to listen for them, and then it’s more like a shout. We’ve were visited last week by Australian astrologer Lynda Hill, the Queen of Sabian Symbols. For the uninitiated, Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 word pictures – one for each degree of the zodiac – given to astrologer Marc […]
