I burst out laughing when I read Horary Astrology by Derek Applyby “Penis (heat) Development Cream, made by the House of Pan. Now then, I’ll bet you never thought of that interpretation for Mars in Cancer in the fifth, did you!”
LOL, now I would never have thought of penile cream as Mars in Cancer! But if you think of it, what else would it be symbolised by?!
Let’s look at the main themes of Bernstein.

Let’s have a look at the natal chart of Antonio Banderas. I’m sure there are quite a lot that we can pick out from Bandera’s chart. But we are just focusing on the key themes.Read More »
I didn’t catch on to mythology, especially Liz Greene’s prolific use of myths in her books, when it comes to learning astrology. However, I was thoroughly impressed when I read that the Romans called Saturn Saturnus, known as the god of agriculture and harvest who founded civilization and the social order. The great feasts of Saturnalia is held annually in the winter.Read More »
I have a client who has Sun in 3rd. She retrained as a lawyer on her first Saturn return. Hearing from her, her work as a lawyer revolves around 3rd house matters – contracts, words, communication, writing, etc. She didn’t mention whether she does routine travel as part of her work. Read More »
The 12th represents many things – the hidden, think the chamber of secrets in Harry Potter, being alone, illness, intuition and the psychic. It’s also the house of self-undoing.Read More »
Pluto is known as the god of the underworld. Pause for a minute and revel in that. God of the underworld. It’s a big big deal isn’t it. What do you know about the underworld? I know very little of it despite reading or hearing the stories of it. It’s shrouded in mystery. It’s a different universe. A place that we don’t naturally gravitate to or generally talk about, compared to e.g. heavens. Read More »
The 4th house and/or IC in astrology represents one’s roots, among other things. What does one’s roots really mean? The first thing that comes to my mind is lineage and ancestry.Read More »
Another increase in my astrological vocabulary for Pluto – a profound experience, “transformative” instead of simply “transformation”.
Commitment, committed to xyz, demands, demanding. Instead of “focused”, try
- “Concerned with”
- Intense (hmmm, I have always associated Pluto with intensity. But I suppose with Saturn’s laser focus on things, it could certainly be described as intense)
- Strong attention to
Take control. Undertake an inventory. Feel lacking. Feel lonely.
My passive vocabulary includes discipline. It’s time to bring out “self-discipline” back to the forefont.
Instead of spiritualise, refined, sensitised, letting go, idealised, transitory, confusion, try inspired, inspiration.
Probe deeply. Understanding and handling emotions and crises.
A tension, conflict, difficulty to be resolved between two principles.
I’m absolutely delighted when I chanced upon Chiron being described as vulnerability. Which makes perfect sense. My astrological vocabulary with Chiron has been stagnant for some time now – wounded healer, wound, injury, healing, feeling isolated, abandoned, difference from the rest, transmuting personal differences into a strength by ingenious means, mentor, guidance, do for others what you can’t do for yourself, sacrifice for kinsman, bridge especially between society and humanity, overcompensation, etc.
Vulnerability makes perfect sense. When one is wounded, one may feel a sense of vulnerability.
