Woolwich Massacre & the April 2014 eclipses

May was dominated by several major planetary events: a series of Neptune squares on the 13th, 18th and 26th, which coincided with misjudgements and travel accidents; another pass of the rather challenging Uranus-Pluto square on May the 20th, which corresponded with a devastating tornado in Oklahoma and an outbreak of rioting and civil unrest in… Continue reading Woolwich Massacre & the April 2014 eclipses

Astrological Review of January 2012

January seemed to be a month themed around economics and money. The headlines were filled with news and views on this topic, from speculation and fears about the future of Europe and the global economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to anger and indignation about banker’s bonuses and the apparent lack of corporate responsibility or social accountability exhibited by the finance sector when it comes to top executive pay in the… Continue reading Astrological Review of January 2012

Astrological Review of August 2011

No sooner had the phone hacking scandal dissipated then the UK was hit by global stock market volatility with European and American shares falling to record lows in the wake of uncertainty about US and Italian national debts at the start of August. A few days later, a number of flashmobs and riots broke out, starting in Tottenham, London on the 6th, soon spreading across the UK the following week, accompanied by wholesale looting of certain high street shops . At the time, Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs came within… Continue reading Astrological Review of August 2011

Astrological Review of June 2011

June played host to two eclipses, starting with a partial solar eclipse in Gemini on the 1st. This signalled the start of a new six month phase in politics, intellectual thought, education, religious beliefs, the media, communications, commerce and travel matters. Saturn also finally ended its period of retrograde motion on the 13th in Libra - the sign ruling relationships, the law, fairness and justice, bringing internal and hidden issues back out into the world once again. During the eclipse, the Sun and Moon made a trine to Saturn, suggesting that regulations, authorities and structuresrelated to Libran-ruled matters might somehow… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 2011

Astrological Review of May 2011

At the very beginning of May, the world was startled by the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed during a covert operation by US military forces in Pakistan.  Jubilation by the American people soon turned to doubt and cynicism as it emerged that they had buried his body out at sea. Despite repeated calls for proof,  the US government refused to publish photographs of the corpse, leaving many wondering whether it was really true that this long-sought fugitive had indeed been caught and killed.… Continue reading Astrological Review of May 2011

Astrological Review of April 2011

Around the April New Moon on the 4th, many people reported experiencing intense aggravation and anxiety as the Sun, Moon and Jupiter in Aries opposed Saturn in Libra. On the world stage, Portugal finally admitted to needing a financial bailout from the EU, which led to all sorts of squabbles about whether the EU should continue to bail out ailing countries in the Eurozone, and the exact nature of what bailouts are – aid or loans? This in turn, led to further discussions about the Euro and the future of the EU.  . .… Continue reading Astrological Review of April 2011
