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
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.

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

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
Happy Equinox Plague! Hiding, or breaking out? So I was wondering what the big Capricorn energy was going to bring, but I didn’t guess pandemic.

Down the lonely dark road of your mind, you walk aimlessly, wondering how you got there, and what's waiting for you at the other end of the light.
