In palmistry, the planets were used to represent certain parts of the hand: Mercury the little finger; the Sun, the ring finger; Saturn, the middle finger; Jupiter, the index finger; Mars, the centre of the palm; Venus, the root of the thumb; and the Moon, the lower mound of the hand.

Composite Sun in the 8th House

The composite Sun in the 8th house symbolises a private couple who operate behind closed doors and with deeper depths than what is visible on the surface of their relationship. In their life, a variety of events and circumstances such as debt, abuse, death, manipulation, and power battles could occur, causing them to feel as though they must fight with everything they have in order to keep their spirits up.

The Reactionary Moon: Creatures of Habit

The Moon is how we respond to life, and it’s often ingrained in our natures. Under the unconscious (Moon) we do things automatically, everything we have learned is stored away and remembered from walking, talking, all the way to driving. It’s about knowing how to do something without having to think about it. Without the Moon, we would have to keep re-learning things all the time. It’s like when we first learn something new, at first it’s frustrating because we…

The Opposition

The opposition in astrology occurs when two planets are 180 degrees apart in the chart, and this puts them “opposite” each other. The opposition consists of the elements (Water and Earth or Air and Fire) that naturally feed each other; need one another on many levels. Depending on the chart balance and other factors, usually, one planet is owned and the other planet is often experienced as an opposing force outside, usually projected onto other people in order for this…

Jungian Psychology

Conflict resides within us all and is seen by its projection onto our outside world especially upon those that we have…

Astrology: Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

LIARS, FIBBERS, CHEATERS, and downright twisters of the truth, how can these traits be seen astrologically in the natal chart. I do believe some propensity to lie can be seen in all the Mercury aspects in astrology, they all just do it in different ways, which I will explain later on. There are many reasons to lie and not all lying is for manipulative purposes, some people need to lie as a way to survive, others lie to make themselves…

Moon in Pisces: You Rang

In Spiritual Astrology by Jan Spiller and Karen McCoy has a Moon in Pisces description for a past life and it was quite amusing to read. It involved past lives spent in monasteries or convents or otherwise, shut away from society. The Lunar Pisces is definitely perpetual escapism from reality. Or, what I call “the boring, mundane chores of life” and the narrow confines of the world. Routine is absolutely necessary for body, mind, and spirit, and everybody always needs to…

Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune: Another Dose

The general flavour of the conjunction has had me questioning its relation to current events. Here in the UK, we had a break-out of Swine Flu, and the biggest outbreak of measles in years. Astrologically, Chiron can be linked with physical problems of this magnitude. According to Liz Greene’s Barriers and Boundaries: The Horoscope and the Defences of the Personality: “Chiron is often linked with physical problems, of both an organic and functional nature. Bitterness and disillusionment can express themselves…
