#071 Ethical Practice: When Astrology Does More Harm Than Good

11/19/2021
I’m hoping that If you’ve had a reading with a professional astrologer before, you’ll recognise the positive impact astrology reading can have – it’s an incredible tool which can help us to work towards becoming the best versions of ourselves in life. Astrology can raise our self awareness and and can make make sense of some of the chaos in life. However, believe it or not there are occasions where astrology, and it's misuse can do more harm than good. I am recording a few episodes on...

#070 Ethical Practice: Why It Matters & My Bad Experience in India

11/12/2021
My trip to India was something I was hugely excited about. It was a high point in my career as a 'young' astrologer. And true to expectations, I had an unforgettable experience which profoundly impacted me and the way that I practice astrology. Sadly it wasn't a moment of enlightenment in the typical sense through detox and meditation. Instead, I found myself at the mercy of the unwanted advances of a fellow 'professional' astrologer. This experience taught me first-hand exactly how...

#069 Interview with Wade Caves On Traditional Challenges With Modern Astrology PLUS House Systems Explained

11/5/2021
In this fascinating episode of The a Stellium Astrology Podcast, I catch up with Wade Caves – an astrologer who started his journey around the same time as I did. Like myself, Wade sees clients and has branched into teaching. Wade specialises in Traditional astrology, working in areas of Horary and Electional astrology which are two very interesting branches of prediction and selection. Discussing a variety of subjects including the controversial subject of gender roles in masculine and...

Among a variety of topics, we discuss the ethical responsibility astrologers have during consultation, as well as touching on Solar Arc Directions: a predictive method Frank has spent years mastering and now teaches his students.

#067 Analysis, Imagination & Spotting Chart Themes | Interview with Fernanda Paiva | PART 1

10/22/2021
During this enhanced episode of The Stellium Astrology Podcast, I talk to an old friend and astrological colleague of mine, Fernanda Paiva. Watch the episode here: https://youtu.be/Ph2oJ_F6GUc This is a bit of a throwback as Fernanda and I had this conversation quite some time ago but I already had a schedule I wanted to put out on the podcast before I had my guests on, so if we talk about some things which aren't so current anymore, that's why! As you'll very soon discover, Fernanda...

#065 How to Connect With Mysterious Placements In Your Chart

10/8/2021
Astrology is an ever-unfolding mystery, particularly our own natal charts which seem to constantly reveal aspects of our personality to us which had previously been hiding in our subconscious awareness. But there will always be elements of our own natal charts which allude us, no matter how hard we research and try to understand them. For example, planets in the 12th house are often very difficult for individuals to grasp, as are any planets which are aspected by dreamy, nebulous...

#064 What is a New Moon Wish List & Why Bother Creating One?

10/1/2021
You’ve probably heard me mention a New Moon Wish List a few times during the podcast. So what exactly is a New Moon Wish List? And why bother creating one? Every 28 days, the Moon does a full revolution as she orbits the Earth leaving us with a few key dates falling on the first quarter, Full Moon, final (third) quarter and concluding and starting over at the New Moon. So the New Moon can be seen as a point of closure and representing new beginnings at the same time. I suppose in...

#063 Is Having A Stellium Good or Bad?

9/24/2021
Now this is a phrase I hear a lot when speaking to my students and clients. It's pretty much the go-to mindset before people learn the depth of the craft, where nothing is really that black and white in astrology. For example, the natal chart is you in all your glory, warts 'n' all. There are ore favourable and less desirable aspects of the personality. There are bits we can take ownership over, and those parts of ourselves that we project onto others. But would we simplify ourselves and...

#062 Stellium: How Rare Is A Stellium?

9/17/2021
Last week I discussed what a stellium is in astrology. This week I wanted to explore the subject a little bit deeper and talk about how rare a stellium is. Like everything in astrology, it's not totally cut and dry. There are some planetary gatherings that are incredibly common. Others, not so much. So this is an episode where I talk a little bit more about stellia and what does and doesn't count. I've written about stellia for my website, so won't go in to too much detail here. Instead,...

#061 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Stellium

9/10/2021
This week I decided to discuss what a stellium is in astrology. You've probably heard of stellia (the plural name for them) as it's the name of this podcast! And it's likely you found my website or this podcast when googling "what is a stellium?" on the hunt for more information on this rather elusive and complicated spect pattern. A stellium is when three or more planets congregate in the same sign or house in the horoscope. Such a concentration of planets can have quite an intense...

#060 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Mystic Rectangle

9/3/2021
The Mystic Rectangle is another interesting aspect pattern which usually pops when you initially glance at the natal chart and is formed of two trines, two sextiles and two oppositions. The way this pattern is organised differs from the kite as a Grand Trine isn’t involved, and there are TWO hard aspects in the shape of the opposition joining the corners of of the rectangle like a check box. Relationships and interaction are going to be important roles in your life, but being connected by...

#059 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Yod/Hand of God/Finger of Fate

8/27/2021
The Yod is one of the more commonly known aspect patterns which has quite a bad reputation! Yet again, another triangular chart shape which is again rather easy to recognise, the Yod is formed of three planets, two sitting in sextile from each other and completed by a third planet apexing at quincunx (a.k.a. inconjunct) the sextile planets. So why does the Yod have a bad reputation? If you go 150° north and south of the ascendant, you’ll find yourself standing on the cusp of the 6th and...

#058 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Thors Hammer

8/20/2021
Mythologically speaking, Thor’s Hammer Mjölnir was one of the most powerful weapons ever crafted, forged by dwarves and gifted to God of Thunder, Thor. Regular listeners will be aware of the frequency in which I talk about Marvel films, and for a long time I crushed hard on Chris Hemsworth! I even wrote an article about him for Star Sign Style! Mjölnir is never too far to be drawn into Thor’s hands and he can use it to defeat his enemies as well as holding on to it and willing it to carry...

#057 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Kite

8/13/2021
The Kite aspect pattern is formed a Grand Trine which has an opposition from one corner of the triangle to the opposite side of the chart, which sits at a sextile to the other two corners of the triangle. It looks as you’d imagine, like a kite or a diamond. Not only is this a rather pretty looking aspect pattern to observe in the natal chart, it actually contains some of the more fortunate and free flowing components of the Grand Trine, while having the benefits of a hard aspect wired into...

#056 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: Grand Trine

8/6/2021
The Grand Trine is related to —you guessed it—the trine aspect. But this is a turbo-charged trine as it involves planets sitting in each of the related elements at around the same degree forming a triangle shape in the natal chart. Just like the trine, the Grand Trine of planets is considered to be a harmonious aspect as the elements work with one another in a positive way. This aspect pattern also includes one of each of the modes, which in turn creates a sense of balance as it isn’t...

#055 The Aspects: Aspect Patterns: T Square

7/30/2021
This is an aspect pattern which is much like the Grand Cross, but cut in half from corner to corner like a sandwich (am I writing when hungry again?!). Two planets sitting in opposition to each other at 180° apart are pulled into a tense pyramid of power when a planet sits on the very top. When connecting the lines from the middle of the opposition and the planet sitting at the mid-point, the letter T can be seen in the natal chart. This planet which forms the tip of the planetary...
