The Future is Now: Pluto's Journey Through Aquarius
Pluto's Journey from Capricorn to Aquarius Almost immediately after Pluto entered Capricorn in January 2008, it triggered a global financial crisis known as "the great recession." The banks collapsed, and while the economy is said to have healed since then (higher wages, lower unemployment rates, etc.), I look at the financial situations of the people around me and think, "has it really?" The COVID-19 pandemic, which coincided with a Capricorn stellium involving Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter, brought about another worldwide economic crisis; businesses were shut down and thousands of people lost their jobs. That said, throughout all this, the billionaires have been fine. After all, Pluto is the planet of plutocracy, of power and money, and underhanded conspiracy. It is also the planet of death and rebirth, of transformation, and of the passionate intensity buried in the depths of the subconscious mind.
Spirits in the Material World: How Saturn in Pisces Will Affect Your Sign
Saturn in Pisces: an Introduction Since March 20th, 2020, Saturn has been transiting through the sign of Aquarius. Although Aquarius is thought of as a social sign, Saturn's entrance into the fixed air sign coincided with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the first lockdowns. Like Capricorn, Aquarius is ruled by Saturn. Considering that Saturn is at home Aquarius, we can safely say that Saturn performed quite strongly here and that this time gave way to the challenges and limitations that Saturn is known for. While Saturn in Capricorn coincided with the spread of right-wing populism, Saturn in Aquarius simultaneously brought isolation, strengthening the boundaries between ourselves and others, and a sense of connection with the whole world, as this was a virus in which no country was immune. What will Saturn in Pisces, a sign almost diametrically opposed to Saturn, bring us?
Jovial Lovers: Sagittarius & Pisces Synastry Compatibility
Introduction This is my eighth article in a series about synastry compatibility and my first about both Sagittarius and Pisces. I chose to write this series because relationships in general are one of my favorite topics: why is it that we gravitate so strongly to some personalities and clash so harshly with others? Astrological compatibility is a tricky thing to measure, however, and because of that, there are a few things I'd like you to keep in mind before reading the article:
Do It Yourself: Jupiter in Aries ~ Dec '22 to May '23
Jupiter in Aries 2022 and Retrograde Back Into Pisces On May 10th, 2022, Jupiter, planet of luck, wisdom and abundance, left its homeland of Pisces and entered Aries, a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars, "god of war." Jupiter remained in the sign of the ram until October 28th, when it traveled retrograde back into Pisces, only to enter Aries once again, on December 20th, where it will stay until it enters Taurus on May 16th, 2023.

The Book of Love: What to Expect When Mercury Goes Retrograde in Capricorn New Years 22/23Top Story - January 2023
What Does "Mercury Retrograde" Mean? A retrograde planet is one that, from the vantage point of earth, appears to be moving in the opposite direction. From an astrological perspective, this means that the energies represented by the planet are directed "backwards" or "inward." Retrograde periods are often riddled with delays and disruption, but there's no need to panic. It is just a time for reflection rather than for taking action. These periods can actually be loaded with magic & synchronicity, causing things from the past to return to us, whether this be people, situations, memories we thought we had forgotten about or lessons that we're getting a second chance to learn after having failed the first time around.
The Rebirth of Venus: Eclipse Season Autumn 2022
Eclipse Season is here again. The Sun darkened by the shadow of the New Moon, the Full Moon darkened by a shadow cast by the Sun, marking a time of change and fate, births, deaths and rebirths - at least for those of us affected by its power.

Love is in the Air: Libra & Aquarius Synastry Compatibility
Introduction This is my seventh article in a series of articles about synastry compatibility, my first about Libra and my second about Aquarius (the first one was about Aquarius' compatibility with Virgo, which you can read here). I chose to do this series because relationships, in general, are one of my favorite topics: why is it that we gravitate so strongly to certain personalities and clash so harshly with others? Astrological compatibility is a tricky thing to measure, however, and because of that, I'm going to ask you a few to keep a few things in mind before reading this article:
The Decans of Cancer
What are Decans? I've been seeing a lot of posts circulating around astrology groups recently, claiming that, or asking if, the different months have an effect on your star sign. Is there any credence to the idea that for example, an April Taurus will behave differently than a May Taurus?

What Astrology Tells Me About the Johnny Depp & Amber Heard VerdictTop Story - June 2022
People had asked me to write an analysis on the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial. I couldn't because I was too busy, and quite frankly, I was trying (and failing) to avoid the whole thing because on a personal level, I found it too triggering. That said, after actually seeing their astrological charts, it is (as you will see) amazing how much they line up with the current transits, and upon realizing that it was Johnny Depp's birthday yesterday (at the time of me writing this), I just couldn't resist writing about it now that I finally have some free time.
Silenced by Violence: What To Expect When Mercury Goes Retrograde Spring 2022
In true retrograde fashion, I am very late to the game in writing about Mercury's trek backwards through the signs of Gemini and Taurus. Starting on May 10th and ending on June 3rd, it looks like we're already about half way through. However, I think there's still enough time left to write about how it will affect us overall.
