Mars photo from NASA Image Library, Copyright free Last week I mentioned the potential changes occurring for years to come from Pluto ensconcing itself in Aquarius, with a brief return to Capricorn just for the hell of it. Now, this past Valentine’s Day (also Ash Wednesday this year) , did you notice anything unusual about […]
Yes, our old plague, Mercury in apparent retrograde motion, once again. If we weren’t on the surface of earth, I suppose we wouldn’t see the illusion. But then again, there would surely be another planet apparently retreating from its usual path to be the blame-catcher for minor irritations and major would-be calamities, whatever world we
Ruled by Venus, the time of someone’s life from age 15 to 24 may be thought of as the years in which the person, or Chart Native, usually experiences love for the first time.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” And so a new

This discussion really isn’t under the purview of astrology necessarily; it’s an old system, a little obscure, with not much in the way of proof to support it. But humans have always seemed to want time to be neatly sliced into segments, whether in hours, days or in this case, the years of someone’s life.
… one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms; And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made
Several readers have asked for more clarification on some points in previous columns. So let’s put ourselves into a temporary retrograde mode (a little astrology humor) and get a bit more background before we discuss what the Seventh through the Twelfth Houses represent in general. To begin: Every Natal Chart has twelve houses, or twelve
