In my previous post on Understanding Chiron, I described my personal thoughts on the life cycle of a magical wound. Let’s apply that life cycle to Chiron in Scorpio.  Continue reading “Chiron in Scorpio”

Understanding Chiron

My relationship with the asteroid or mini planet Chiron is ever evolving albeit very slowly. Chiron is commonly known as the wounded healer. I think the analogy of a wound helps me very much in interpreting Chiron’s placement in the different signs and houses.  Continue reading “Understanding Chiron”

Musing About the Fiery Road

It’s still the via combusta now! For the noobs in astrology, it’s when the Moon is traversing from the zodiac sign Libra 15 degrees to Scorpio 15 degrees. My limited knowledge about via combusta is that it’s primarily of use in horary astrology and that it distresses the Moon i.e. whoever asks the universe a question during this time is likely to be experiencing emotional turbulence. There’s also a school of thought that it’s wise for questions not to be answered during such times. Continue reading “Musing About the Fiery Road”

Am I Going to Study With This World-Famous Astrologer?

There is this famed astrologer in the world that I was extremely keen to study with. I wrote to her expressing my tremendous interest in studying with her. I was ecstatic to hear back from her after 1.5 weeks. I then asked her for her payment details so that I can pay her via Paypal, bank transfer, etc. I waited for a week and didn’t hear back from her. Out of curiosity, I did a Google search on her past and existing students. The search revealed that there’s few students/astrologers with references to her name (i.e. 2 names out of about 100 results). Of course, there’s a likelihood that her students are shy of the internet or there’s equally other valid reasons for the lack of search results.

Lunar Nodes – A Balance Between the Old and New

I think the traditional view of the natal south node is that it’s malefic and something that we should avoid and move away from. The modern western psychological view is that we don’t abandon what comes naturally to us but instead, capitalise on them whenever it’s appropriate to do so and seek to develop the qualities of our North Node. In effect it’s to have the best of both worlds.

Solar Returns – What’s the Big Messages?

Solar returns can be a very useful tool in a predictive/forecasting astrologer’s toolbox. My relationship with solar returns has changed over time. I used to be very detailed when using them. The current flavour of the month for me is to extract the big messages from them to identify any key messages that are not covered in transits. In any case, I think it’s useful to do a 10 to 15 minutes reading using the solar return (SR) chart before or after delving into transits. Continue reading “Solar Returns – What’s the Big Messages?”

Lunar Nodes: Scorpio – Taurus

Here are some adjectives regarding this pair of moon nodes: Interdependence versus independent. Or put simply, us versus I Joint/partner’s resources versus own resources Intensity versus simplicity Emotional versus physical Emotional intimacy versus physical intimacy Penetrative versus on the surface I had a client who has her north lunar node conjunct her Descendant and accordingly, her south node conjuncts the Ascendant. She broke up with … Continue reading Lunar Nodes: Scorpio – Taurus
