  • Astrology Aug 2nd-11th (♌II): The Wounded Lion

    The Sun rises in the second decan of Leo on the morning of August 2nd. The Sun will prowl this span of the sky until August 12th, when it enters Lion’s third and final face. During the previous decan, we saw a serpent of incandescent spirit descend into matter. The fire snake coalesced into a lion and wrestler and their […]
  • July 2017: Fire Ceremony

    One of the few configurations which holds throughout this July is the relationship between Mars and the Sun. The two are close enough all month to make Mars invisible to the naked eye. They begin July only 7 degrees apart, and that increment slowly narrows until the two conjoin on the 26th. This is the only part of Mars’ 2-ish […]
  • May 2017: The Torch of Prometheus

    Though there are a few interesting sideplots, May’s primary story is undoubtedly a tale about Saturn and Uranus. The two planets complete a trine this month, the second in their series of three. As I wrote of this pair in The Astrology of 2017 – Though the trine (120 degrees) is usually a happy angle, through which energy is easily […]
  • Astrology 2/6-2/12: Foreshadowing

    This week hosts a penumbral lunar eclipse in tropical Leo.  The eclipse takes place on Friday, the 10th, and will be at least partially visible across all of the inhabited continents, sans Australia.

  • February 2017: Time Machine

    February’s skies promise a month both fast and strange. Mars and Venus’ presence in Aries pushes the pace of the month, accelerating it through a pair of eclipses which promise to take us across peculiar terrain. We’ll ride the eclipse dragon, like a roller-coaster, through tunnels ablaze with images. Visions of the future abound, which upon inspection lo suspiciously like […]
  • Astrology of January 1/9-1/15: Conditional Expectations

    The year makes its first big move with the Full Moon in Cancer this week. Although every Full Moon is worthy of note, this one completes a grand cross configuration, and will therefore be particularly intense. Though grand crosses have been known to kick up a shit-storm or two, there is an underlying structure to them, which becomes clear after […]
  • The Astrology of 2017: Ante Up

    The skies of 2017 shine bright and gaudy as a Vegas casino, and house just as many games of skill and chance.  The year deals a thick deck of cards, emblazoned with images both luminous and monstrous.   In that deck hide jers aplenty.  There is no lone Fool concealed within, but a motley army, intent on showing up when they’re […]
  • Astrology 9/26-10/2: Unfamiliar Footing

    This week holds both conclusions and introductions.  Late Monday night, Mars finally exits Sagittarius, leaving behind the site of the red planet’s long and, at times brutal, retrograde cycle.  The New Moon in Libra arrives later in the week, on Friday.  This New Moon will be our first lunation since August to go un-eclipsed, and will take place right next […]
