So I moved back to WordPress because even though my old blog wasn't as pretty, it was a lot more inspiring. WordPress is just better for blogs, and I'm person who writes about astrology as opposed to a person who sells astrology products.
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
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
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
I made it pretty far. I wonder what the next decade will be like. I turn 40 on Thanksgiving. My birthday present to myself is hiring a maid service so I have more time for writing. It's all part of a cosmic plan, just as it's apparently all part of cosmic plan that I live … Continue reading Lordy Lordy, Look Who’s (Almost) 40!: Transiting into (the Beginning of) Middle Age
This is pretty much where I am in my mind all the time now. I daydream a lot now. Like, a lot more than I used to during my very active Saturn transits of the past. One of my favorite things to do is to have unstructured quiet time where I either listen to music … Continue reading Gratitude Attitude: Actual Gratitude in Astrology
Pretty much. My boyfriend gets mad at me for spending the weekend writing articles. You don’t have to do that, he says. But I kind of do, because even though yes, I could be going out, and yes, there are other things I need to do, I really miss being a professional writer. But I … Continue reading Neptunian Thoughts
I know that I have posted on this before here and here, but I want to add something hopeful to the mix. If you’re about 36 to 42, you may be feeling a bit of despair right now, especially if you are still working toward unfulfilled dreams. Setbacks and obstacles may be in your way, … Continue reading If You’re 36 to 42, Don’t Give Up Now! You’re Too Stupid to Fail.
The South Node is transiting my ascendant. When this transit occurs, one of the things that happens is that people from your past or whom you already know seek you out, and they can often be of great help, since this transit can be a struggle to move forward and not rely on old habits … Continue reading Eight Reasons Why You Should Get Over Finding Your Soul Mate
In a way, inspired by Fernanda, I'm going to try something new: I am going to teach astrology through memoir. First, my second year of law school is turning out to be a motherfucker of a year, and like most motherfuckers, it is an infuriating and exhilarating mix of stress, excitement, joy, and feeling inadequate. … Continue reading Trying Something New: Astrology Through Narrative
