In terms of sunlight, this is as dark as it gets (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), but while the winter solstice is only two days behind us and winter is just getting underway, it’s only three months until spring—the Earth’s season of hope and new beginnings. No matter how challenging these last days of […]

Normally at the approach of the winter solstice I would write about the darkening days and subsequent return of the light, but this year, when the days are already too dark, it seems redundant to write about such a thing—although the seasonal pull inward is still significant, maybe even more so than it usually is. […]

Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction, Part Two We are less than two weeks away from a rare conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn that takes place on the winter solstice, December 21, at 1:20 PM EST. But the solstice timing isn’t what makes it special. This conjunction is significant for astrologers because while Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions occur every twenty years, […]

Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction Part One. We are in the final weeks of a long and difficult year, one that demanded we look much more deeply into how we want to live, especially when it comes to what we value most as individuals and as an aggregation of cultures inhabiting Planet Earth. 2020 began with the earth-shattering […]

Mercury Direct began on November 3, in the middle of Election Day, and Mars Direct began on Friday, November 13.  Biden and Harris won and we are making actual progress on a vaccine for COVID-19—all good news, and yet the world still seems like a “mixed up, muddled up, shook up” mess that continues to […]

The collective exhale is still palpable—it was so joyous on Saturday when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were declared the winners that I could hear the crowds cheering from hundreds of miles away. (Just kidding; the TV delivered the news.)  And that jubilation is sure to continue rippling across the collective waters until the actual […]

As many of you know, I always write a couple of days before the column is published, which makes it impossible to write about the election. I have no idea who’s going to win and I can only hope that a blue wave sweeps the country, and we are set free from the tyranny of […]

The intensity intensifies this week and emotional currents are charged—exceptionally charged—so before you leap into impulsive responses and by doing so inadvertently contribute to the madness of our extreme polarization, think before you leap into a chasm you might find hard to escape. This advice is not about being a wuss—it’s about taking in the […]

Almost everyone (okay, everyone) is holding their breath. So much hangs in the balance that no one is inhaling or exhaling until the United States presidential election is decided—and that’s still a couple of weeks away, so if you find yourself gasping for air, don’t be surprised. What’s more, not only are many of our […]

As I study the astral patterns for the week, knowing and feeling the madness that surrounds us, all I can hear in my head is John Lennon singing: I’m sick and tired of hearing things From uptight, short-sighted Narrow-minded hypocrites All I want is the truth now Just gimme some truth now I’ve had enough […]

It’s hard to stay confident when the world wobbles and the ground feels fluid, especially when those wobbles aren’t from earthquakes, explosions, or meteorite collisions. The world is wobbling from deeply profound shifts, some of which we are doing our best to understand. Nevertheless, as these tremors shudder across the collective they are affecting everyone, […]

When I would drop LSD way back in the 1960s, just as the acid was coming on, there would be a slightly tinny taste at the back of my throat, a taste that signaled the start of the trip or what I lovingly referred to as my “ticket to Wonderland.” That’s what the air feels […]

I can’t write about Ruth Bader Ginsberg this week, not just because everyone is writing about her but because her death has made it harder to hold onto hope—and we need hope at this particular moment almost as much as we need air to breathe. And because her death is a blow to the cause […]

On September 2, I wrote that it felt as if we had moved to Mars—a reference to just how aggressively the Martian air was (and still is) dominating our daily lives. Now I am sure we’ve living on the red planet because the skies over the West Coast and the pictures coming out of California, […]

It would be all too tempting to just throw in the towel and say I’m tuning out and won’t be paying attention to anything related to the state of the States until after the election is over and COVID-19 is a thing of the past. Except that, alas, it cannot be done because there’s no […]
