#079 Where To Start | How To Interpret The Birth Chart

1/14/2022
FYI Ewan was with me during today’s episode and being rather noisy but as my life is a little crazy I have to seize my moments where I can. This podcast is very important to me and I want to continue putting it out for you all. Hence Ewan is playing with toys, chatting, sneezing and farting (pooping?) during today’s episode! Hopefully it isn’t too distracting. Please let me know if you find it difficult to concentrate on what I’m saying or if you enjoyed Ewan’s first appearance on the...

#078 Having Mercury Retrograde in Your Natal Chart

1/7/2022
This is a pre-recorded show as this week it’s my birthday! Hooray! It’s one of the more commonly known aspects of astrology these days – even Taylor Swift has talked about it publicly. We like to blame our misgivings on it, and know we have to be extra careful whenever we find ourselves on the run up to, or in the midsts of: Mercury Retrograde. But what does it mean if you were born during one of these periods? To start with, it’s fairly common as Mercury moonwalks roughly 3-4 times per...

#077 NYE Episode: The Astro-Highlights of 2022

12/31/2021
I know it's cliché, but I can't believe how quickly the time flies. We are already saying goodbye (and good riddance) to 2021, and moving on to 2022 with high(ish) hopes that this year will be at least a little bit better than the last. And by the looks of the astrology, it will be. During this episode, I look at the North and South Node plus the Taurus–Scorpio eclipses, the FOUR Mercury Retrogrades of 2022, a brief look at the transpersonal planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, and the...

#075 Enhance Parenting With Astrology + Elements Walkthrough with Maria Reigger Part 1

12/17/2021
As I always say, the elements and modes are key to understanding an individuals motivations and how they cope with challenge. I had a fun and interesting chat with Maria Reigger about how to better relate to you children (or parents for that matter) using the elements as a gide for positive communication. Maria and I circled a lot around Gemini, Scorpio and Capricorn because those signs are heavily present in our charts. However, in Part 2 we do an elements walk-through, so take note if...

#072 Ethical Practice: A Conversation About My SCARY Experience

11/26/2021
As part of my series on Ethical Practice I thought it was important to point out that even in non-astrological fields, there can be issues around abuses of power, and this can be a very dangerous time when in a particularly vulnerable time in your life. I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine, Mel D, whose path I crossed in a very unusual way. Mel and I both signed up to a counselling skills course a few years back where we found ourselves in a “classroom” that looked...

#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...

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!

#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...
