I believe it was Michael Herkes, the GLAM Witch, who has coined this phrase and deserves all the credit. Read his books. We all need Lilith to liberate us from the Karenization of the occult. Sometimes I feel like I should soften my stance on organized religion, usually because of coming across people who have … Continue reading Karencraft and the Karenization of Astrology
At least not at first, at least not for a while. Maybe I'm shooting myself in the foot, especially since right now, I'm getting more requests than usual from people who just met someone and started a pandemic romance and want to know if it's "meant to be." The answer is probably no, because almost … Continue reading Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Be Asking for His Birth Data
While I set out to create a blog to teach astrology, I realize that I either failed to do so or didn't create the expected blog. I don't think I intended to create a blog that synthesized astrology into daily life and thought, but I guess that's kind of what I've done. There are so … Continue reading Dispositors: Creating Full Pictures By Going Around the Zodiac
Dig in to some Thanksgiving wings. Happy Thanksgiving! A sudden turn of events meant that I had to stay home. This is my first Thanksgiving alone, and it feels like...Saturday. Like nothing. Like I'm not missing anything. I guess when you don't really look forward to Thanksgiving, you don't necessarily miss it when you don't … Continue reading Thanksgiving Thoughts on Another Year Passing
No, really. You weren't. I'll stop you right there and repeat: You. Were. Not. Born. On. A. Cusp. You were not born on a cusp. Period. I don't care if your birthday is October 23rd, November 22, or December 22nd and for the love of the universe: Virgos, stop telling me that you were born … Continue reading You were not born on a cusp.
Happy Sagittarius season! Happy Thanksgiving! Indulge an old woman a little Dave Matthews Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psIuidkkLjI If you don't feel like celebrating The Colonist's Day of No Mercy, might I suggest waiting until Saturday to celebrate my birthday instead? Instead of wasting your time trying to catch coronavirus by traveling home to be with a bunch … Continue reading Happy Sagittarius and Happy Colonist’s Day of No Mercy!
I have dealt with the backlash and the comments myself, even though at this point in my life, I’m not asking for anyone’s birth data or drawing up charts immediately. After 20 years, I pretty much can wait a little bit before deciding if a compatibility chart is needed, and I know that I could … Continue reading Do Guys Hate Astrology?
UPDATE: This article has hit some very particular nerves with some very particular people, including a couple hasty, self-righteous ones who think I'm talking about my own clients. No: I'm not talking about clients. I'm talking about the very real thing I address later in this article, which is one of the reasons I warn … Continue reading Astrologers are All Doing It: Crushing on (or Falling in Love With) an Astrological Chart
So, I did my solar return chart for 2021. I may have the option to return to my hometown for Thanksgiving, which is shortly before my birthday, and my birthday is on a Saturday this year, which means I’d either be in the Finger Lakes for my birthday or traveling back to Chicago, or by … Continue reading On the 4th House
How can an atheist be an astrologer? How can I be hanging out in the threshold of the woo closet under the mistletoe and still just say there's no higher power? Isn't this all part of the claptrap of belief? You can live without belief in higher powers and still be an astrologer. Atheism and … Continue reading Astrology is for Atheists
