The Astrological Devil in Disguise


June 10th, 2017

You may know that Neptune is the astrological ruler of deception. The influence of Neptune is quite foggy, and this can include fogging up our judgment and making it difficult for us to see what’s right in front of us. It may be plain as day to everyone else, but it’s not so simple to Read More…

The Progressed 12th House and Isolation


April 29th, 2017

The 12th house is the house of the hidden, and sometimes this includes hiding ourselves. This is usually most evident with people who have their natal Sun in the natal 12th house, and they come across very shy, reserved, or uncomfortable in public situations. Over the years, I’ve also noticed a theme with the progressed Read More…

Two Stelliums in the Natal Chart


April 4th, 2017

  A stellium occurs when you have 3 or more planets conjunct (grouped together) in one sign. They usually need to be within 10 degrees, but sometimes you can feel them as a stellium beyond that, especially if it’s more than 3 planets in that sign.

Astrology of Hope & Fear


November 9th, 2016

Hope and fear can seem like polar opposites, but astrologically, they’re not actually represented by opposite signs and houses. To start with hope, this is governed by the 11th house, Aquarius, and Uranus. These rule our hopes and dreams, our idealistic sides, and our ability to hope for something better. The sign on the 11th Read More…

Repetition in Synastry


October 17th, 2016

Synastry is a part of relationship astrology, and you take the natal charts of two people and compare them to one another. This helps you to see how compatible they are with one another, how their charts impact one another, and how they each make the other feel. When you see repetition between the charts, Read More…

Composite Ascendant in the Signs


September 22nd, 2016

  The composite chart merges the charts of two people to create a brand new chart that is the chart for the relationship or partnership itself. The composite chart can explain why some people you wouldn’t think would get along do and why some people you’d think would be a perfect match are duds. The Read More…

The Anaretic Degree in the Progressed Chart


August 18th, 2016

The anaretic degree is 29 degrees of any sign, the very last degree of the sign, and it’s a point of crisis energy. In the natal chart, it can show areas where you may struggle with issues that need to be worked through. In the progressed chart, when a progressed planet or house cusp are Read More…
