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 Problems Encountered with Covert Narcissists

I just read a very interesting post - Facebook's Whores of Deception - about the problems encountered when joining a Support Group for Victims of Narcissists. The main problem being that the Support Group could be the vanity project (and source of narcissistic supply) of a Narcissist. If you think that a Narcissist couldn't possibly... Continue Reading →

Ambulance Chasers

As I write these words the ambulance has finally arrived. The 'ambulance chasers' in this story are the police and the firemen, both of whom called for an ambulance... and then had to wait for about an hour for it to arrive. It thus took well over those 37 minutes which the policeman said he... Continue Reading →

Who’s More Dangerous?

Alice Miller's work is a must read for anyone interested in child psychology, their child's or their own inner child's psychology, and how parenting affects the child, or how your parenting reflects your own childhood, and many variations on that theme. Her book - The Drama of the Gifted Child - is excellent and is... Continue Reading →

There is society, where none intrudes

The other day I did it. 'It' being going for a healthy walk into the heart of nature... I didn't quite reach the destination I had in mind - a beautiful lake in the middle of nowhere - because I went the wrong way and instead found myself in the midst of an eerie swamp... Continue Reading →

Shallow Waters Don’t Always Run Deep

Does your mind sing to you? Does it serenade your every movement? Does it give a theme tune to your thoughts? Does it play... with your emotions, reflecting how you're feeling in its choice of inner soundtrack? Does it give you music as you go about your daily this and that like a soundtrack to...

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 →

Why do People Say that, Do that, Be that…?

One of the questions which has invariably gotten me into trouble in life usually begins with a - Why do people...? This question doesn't always get me into trouble, it depends on how I ask it... problem is I often ask it the same way and that way includes a genuine desire to know the... Continue Reading →

Taking the Narcissist Test

Apparently you can determine whether you're a Narcissist or not simply by taking this test - Narcissistic Personality Inventory. Of course it's not really designed to determine whether or not you're a Narcissist, what it's actually for is to assess your personal narcissism, and this is pointed out in the intro (see below). . ....

Answering Questions About People

I've done a post on - Answering Questions About Narcissists - and one on - Answering Questions About Capricorn - so I thought I'd do one on something which both of those have in common - they're people. Now I know there are those who would prefer to think of Narcissists and Capricorns as not... 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 →

Thoughts on Thinking Less of Yourself…

. The concept of 'Radical Authenticity' both excites me and makes me groan... It excites me because... when people are just themselves as they are (which is always a challenge because we're often taught to fear who we are as we are and hide it), let it all hang out however awkward, weird, strange, and...

The Trump Card

There's a lot of talk online about a certain fellow named Donald Trump... There was a bit of a discussion about him last night offline in my home... Usually when people start talking about Trump I switch off. If its online I simply click away, if its offline my ears do that thing which certain... Continue Reading →

Freeze it, Burn it, Blast it!

If you're alive then you're going to have to learn how to deal with the things which come along with being alive. Some of those things are great and well worth experiencing. You'll want more of those great things once you've experienced them, and their incredible taste will stay with you long after you've eaten... Continue Reading →

Relationships are ‘Easy’…

You don't know me... even if you think you do - you don't. Seriously... I know I do deadpan and it can be hard to know when I'm being serious and when I'm only pretending to be serious, laughing and smiling behind a tight lipped expression... but... don't argue with me about this because I'm...

Never Going to Give You Up…

No, I'm not rick-rolling... It might surprise, and perhaps disturb, you to learn that before Rick Astley became the figurehead of an internet meme and prank (that is now a bit old school as far as online practices and trends go)... he was just a pop star singing a song that was rather popular with...

Dinner with Narcissists

Thank you to lansealan for suggesting the idea of  writing a post about going out to eat with a narcissist. . So, where to begin... perhaps first I should mention that most of my experiences of going out to eat with a narcissist involve one or both of my parents. I apologise to any narcissist...

Single and Old…

. “Or maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind...

When is the Silent Treatment NOT the Silent Treatment?

If you're human... and not some alien from another planet who ended up on Earth and is stuck here (through no fault of your own, of course), because your own people have abandoned you (you volunteered for this mission and they warned you that if it goes wrong they're just going to pretend they don't...

The Worst Thing To Do To A Narcissist

If you were to ask me what the worst thing I have ever done to a narcissist has been... I'd have to take a long pause to think about it while I sort through all the imaginary worst things which the narcissists in my life think I've done to them (and spent hours on end... 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...

None but ourselves can free our minds…

When did you first become aware of your mind's ability to think for itself? And was this a good or a bad discovery for you? Did you have mixed feelings about it... and did you wonder if your feelings were free of the mind and its thoughts or intricately linked to it? Perhaps even eclipsed... Continue Reading →

Half a Good Day… musings and whatnot

This morning I decided to check out my personal daily astrology, which I haven't been doing lately as... I haven't been interested in anything it had to say... because it had basically been saying the same old stuff and I already know that (sometimes it's useful to know it and sometimes it's not and I'd...
