RIP Chris Cornell – Hygiea Happenings

    It’s about 95F here in Providence today. My windows are up as I write this, so I keep hearing cars rolling by along the busy street outside, and many of them have various Soundgarden tunes blasting from out of their own open windows. This seems fitting enough, as the band’s frontman and primary … More RIP Chris Cornell – Hygiea Happenings

This is the chart for tonight’s Full Moon. This one is happening in the intense and sometimes scary territory of Scorpio. The chart points out a few interesting facts about this event.

It’s important to look at where a given retrograde shift is happening, and then see if you have … More Astrology PSA: What Does a Retrograde Planet Mean for You?

Divination Referencing Divination

If systems of divination – such as Tarot, Runes, or Astrology – can be seen as microcosms of the larger Universe that they peer into, then doesn’t it make sense that these systems themselves must appear somewhere within their own boundaries? That is, if Tarot, for example, does exist in the Universe, and if Tarot is … More Divination Referencing Divination

ASTROLOGY: Astro-Bulletin 16 July ’16

Astrologers often match world events to astrological developments. For instance, it lines up pretty well to suggest that the recent spikes in violence and terrorism could be manifestations of the passage of the war-Planet, Mars, through the dark and intense Sign of Scorpio. Also relevant: Mars is now forming a configuration known as a Grand … More ASTROLOGY: Astro-Bulletin 16 July ’16

1781: Astrology and Tarot Collide!

I’m a big fan of astrologer Steven Forrest. He’s made this point in various ways that I’ve really come to like.
