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
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
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.
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?

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
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. This is going to be a special Mercury retrograde for me, because it’s in Scorpio, which is my natal Mercury sign, and I have Mercury retrograde in … Continue reading Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio!
That guy in the middle? Sagittarius. Totally. Jupiter has entered Sagittarius and will stay there for quite some time. It entered Sagittarius on November 8, 2018 and will stay until December 2, 2019. Jupiter is the natural ruler of Sagittarius, and there, it adds joviality and generosity, and a big dose of optimism. As of … Continue reading Jupiter in Sagittarius
This is the first in an experiment to make astrology understood through narrative. I hated school, but I loved college. I have been to five now, and now, in my mid-thirties, I am in graduate school studying to be a lawyer. I have studied literature, fine art, writing, ceramics, acting, psychology, math, and engineering. I … Continue reading I am Sagittarius Sun: Narrative 1
Weddings used to the be the rite of passage in which adults (or those deemed to be adult enough) left the homes of their parents and entered into home life together. Now, we can all live with whomever we choose for as long as we choose, so the rite has changed and, I think, it … Continue reading Relationship Astrology is a game of MASH: Don’t Forget the 4th House
