Experimenting with Human Design

There's a blog which I enjoy visiting - Love Your Design by Kim Gould  - which does astrology in a slightly different manner than usual. When I first came across that blog I thought that the system they were using was created by the blogger, Kim Gould. It was intriguing, appealed to my quirky mind... Continue Reading →

Your Weekend 7 January 2018 Echoes — Julie Demboski’s ASTROLOGY

Influences today are oblique, coming at us sideways, so to speak, and echoing instinctive knowledge, what we know but haven’t recognized (info carried in the ‘blind spot’), or the past and what it has taught us (Neptune semi-sq Pallas, Mercury qnx Sedna and paralled by the Sun). How successfully do we handle this? It may […]... Continue Reading →

Cappy Birthday Thoughts

Today is my birthday, and I'm saturning 49. I don't have too many thoughts about being 49 specifically, and being in my 50th year on planet Earth. (I have enjoyed being in my 40's, it's the best decade yet! But I have no idea if I'm doing my 40's as the 40's are supposed to... Continue Reading →

Pluto Square Saturn – Testing your Mettle

Hello, and welcome to one of my astrology posts! If you're new to my blog neighbourhood, here's some things you might want to know before settling in: 1 - I'm not an astrologer, so my version of astrology is... my version of astrology (which is sort of astrology but not really astrology, it's basically another...

It’s Like Nothing I do Makes a Difference

The title of this post - It's Like Nothing I do Makes a Difference - comes from something I jotted down on a pad I have on my desk for jotting somethings down... These somethings are things which don't really have words to describe them and the words used to describe them don't really describe... Continue Reading →

Does Capricorn Hate Nagging?

Put your hands up... No, this isn't a stick up... and no, you're not being arrested... for being a Capricorn capricorns and people (anything in bold in this particular post is a search term which popped up in my blog's stats over the last 7 days) apparently Capricorns aren't people, and may be stopped, frisked,...

Jupiter in Scorpio – When the Dirty Little Secret Comes Out of Hiding

This post is part-astrology and part-not-astrology, it's part-about-Narcissists and part-not-about-Narcissists, but it is all about me... or is it? Have you ever considered the conundrum of - What's your individual role in the community, in humanity, in the evolution of the human species? Have you recently participated in #MeToo, or have you wanted to but... Continue Reading →

Pluto Direct(ly) and Indirectly

Is this a post about astrology? - you ask no one in particular and the air inside your head in general, groaning a little or perhaps kind of excited about the prospect... which is it? Do you know? I'm not sure if this is an astrology post - I answer into the void (you left... Continue Reading →

Sweet Dreams are Made of Marilyn Manson

Do you ever have dreams which you can't explain to yourself... ones which don't seem to have any connection to anything you were thinking about or feeling before you fell asleep, which don't appear to connect to what you experienced, witnessed, noticed, saw, what had an impact upon you, your conscious or subconscious, during the... Continue Reading →

My Past Life as a Narcissist

Like with most of my posts I'm going to jump around from subject to subject, go off on tangents, ramble seemingly randomly, babble about myself, and so on... if you haven't got the time or patience to sift through all of that to find what you're looking for, need or want from my word share,...

Living in a David Lynch World

Today started off with bright blue sky and radiant sunshine... it was scorchio even though this is England (summer is not supposed to be summery here) and early in the morning... but then the sky grew dark, thick with a fast moving ominous blanket of grey cloud which soon took on an eerie pink glow...

Things My Father Taught Me

My father died a few years ago... which was a bit of a surprise because he had been so convinced of his immortality that I'd begun to suspect he might be right about it, and wasn't as mad as he often sounded and seemed. While it was improbable, some improbable things do happen (the world... Continue Reading →

Challenging Structures – thoughts on Pluto versus Saturn and vice versa

At the moment astrologically I am caught in the middle of transiting Pluto squaring natal Saturn and transiting Saturn squaring natal Pluto. For those who are not into astrology this roughly translates as - that bunker you built for yourself to protect you from the coming apocalypse and survive for many years... well the apocalypse...

The 12th House – It All Ends in Tears

Have you ever felt that someone was hiding something from you? Have you ever sensed that you were hiding something from yourself? An intangible itch, an elusive spot to scratch which can't quite be reached, a pricking of the thumbs, an intuitive hunch which won't tell you what it knows, a suspicion of something lurking...

The 11th House: Stark Naked in the Classroom

I once peed myself in the middle of a History lesson... and when I say I peed myself I mean it literally and not as an expression of how horrified I was about what humans have done to each other over the course of our history, nor do I mean that I peed a little... Continue Reading →

The Midheaven and 10th House: What You Want to Be and Who They Think You Are

Who do you want to be when you grow up... and when exactly will you be a grown up? What to you is the essential ingredient which makes someone a grown up as opposed to a child in an adult body masquerading as a grown up? What's your public persona... and do others see you... Continue Reading →

The 9th House: The Quest for Meaning and Purpose

Not all who wander are lost... so why are they wandering? If they're not trying to find their way home, following breadcrumb trails, yellow brick roads, or lights at the end of the tunnel, what are they trying to find? What if they're not trying to find anything? What if they're comfortable living without purpose,... Continue Reading →

The 8th House – What is Theirs and What I Want to Make Mine

Do you like it when I ask you questions at the beginning of my posts? Does it engage you, make you feel like you're part of the conversation as though we're having a tete-a-tete? Or does it make you shift a little... move your finger to click away? Are my questions a little too probing,... Continue Reading →

The Descendant and 7th House – We, Us, You plus Me

I hope you've been enjoying my particular (and possibly peculiar) take on the houses in astrology and how to use them while attempting to read your natal chart. I ranted a bit, raved a lot, talked exhaustively and extensively about me, me, me... which is actually okay and not something to feel ashamed about as... Continue Reading →

The 6th House – The Doctor is in…

What's your attitude towards your body? How do you manage your health, your diet, and your other day to day doings, comings and goings? [Me (momentarily distracted from this post by a thought triggered after writing the sentence above and forced into awareness by the connections I made in mental imagery): I should really check...

The 5th House – Drama, drama, drama…

What did you create today? And when you created it did you demand attention for it, for you through it? Did you want applause, accolades, a cornucopia of 'Likes', did you #hashtag it up the wazoo so no one would miss it even if they were trying to ignore you and what you're doing on... Continue Reading →

The 4th House – Home is Where…?

Where is home for you? What do you consider to be essential for a place, perhaps a thing, or even a person to have for you to feel at home there, with it, with them... How would you finish this sentence - Home is where........ Is it where the heart is, wherever you lay your... Continue Reading →

The 3rd House – How Do You Communicate?

How do you express all that stuff swirling around in your mind... How do you share your thoughts, views, perceptions, observations, your thought out feelings, etc, with others... How do you blog, or tweet, or instagram, snapchat, email, text, or do Facebook? And how would you answer those questions, how would you communicate your answers... Continue Reading →

The 2nd House – What is Mine, Mine, Mine

What is me, me, me is often defined by what is mine, mine, mine. While we are not necessarily what we have... what we have is something which we may use to define who we are - or who others are. Someone who owns and wears in public a Rolex watch is going to get... Continue Reading →

The Rising Sign and 1st House – The Face of Me, me, me

Okay, let's try and do this a little less chaotically (if you happened to wander into my last post - How To (Probably NOT) Read Your Astrology Chart - you'll know what I mean by that). So what is a Rising sign (otherwise known as the Ascendant)? . . Well, it's basically the face you... Continue Reading →

How To (probably NOT) Read Your Astrology Chart

I love astrology, and I don't care if people think the subject is bullshit or even dangerous... The above statement is both true and untrue, and subject to fluctuations, subtleties, nuances, and complex twists and turns common amongst humans. . something I keep in mind when looking at other humans, hope those other humans keep...

The Thinky Pain of Mars in Scorpio

. “That’s the big challenge of life—to chisel disappointment into wisdom so people respect you and you don’t annoy your friends with your whining.” ― Marc Maron . Have you ever met (and I'm using the concept of meeting very loosely) someone who made you do a double take and say to yourself - Omg,... Continue Reading →

Out of the Mouths of Capricorns

Matt Mullenweg is the creator of WordPress - he's also a Capricorn . The other day I received a comment on one of my Capricorn posts - Do you have relationship problems with a Capricorn? - from someone who definitely seems to have a problem with the sign. Their comment isn't going to get approved...... Continue Reading →

By the Grace of Jupiter in Libra

(image via Greek Mythology Patheon) . If you're into astrology beyond the whole Sun signs and magazine horoscopes aspect of it, which are interesting in a fun way but they only skim the surface of the concept, like one of those bugs which skates across water but never goes under, fun to watch it do...

Stepping Through a Virgo Door

. “I was looking for the key for years But the door was always open” ― Aravind Adiga . It really needs replacing, it's knackered, it is glued together with layers of paint, so stripping it before repainting it was not an option, but even though it is falling apart there's something about it which...
