Manifesto

The truth is, we gotta do the work. Astrology is—in a way—the study of EVERYTHING, as reflected in the heavens.  In practical terms, it is the study of US—human beings who exist on Earth—and it offers clues as to how we get by, based on when we’re born and what...
Caveat Eclipse

Caveat Eclipse

Monday’s total Solar Eclipse at 12:16 PM AST is both optimistic and dangerous. Optimistic, because of an elatedly loopy relief after months of pent-up panic and dread–daily or distant, it has taken its toll on us. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is,...
