Image: via February scopes are up. February is here, and promises to be more fun than whatever the fuq has been going down lately- I mean seriously, early Jan did get 2016 off to a rocky start, huh? I'm not sure if I can recall a single client from Jan who wasn't dealing with some treacherous break-up or headfuq hot/cold nutty 'lover'. And don't get me started on my own ridiculous techno/computer dramas, including TWO months of solid writing apparently down the drain...grrr. But the fuqery of Mercury retrograde with a seething Pluto chaser is soon behind us, and we can get on with it already. Hallellujah. And the thing is that all this electrical energy we've b


PISCES/PISCES RISING The Jupiter/Destiny Point action in your love sector is buzzing away nicely, and reminding you of the power of fate and free will. There are some things in romance we can’t control… namely other people, lol! We can’t control our loved ones’ intrinsic nature or behaviour –not really, and rarely healthfully. And we can’t control the fate aspect of when and with whom crazy romantic chemistry strikes. So we learn to flow graciously with the destinal movement of significant others in and out of our lives, and use our free will to play the romantic hand we’re dealt with maximum integrity and good-hearted openness to love; and of course remaining wise about which scenarios are


ARIES/ARIES RISING Mars, your ruling planet, is activating your sex/intimacy/money/biz sector until August. So you might as well strap yourself in for a full-tilt, wild ride for quite a while yet… You’re not scared to chase up whatever turns you on right now. It could be pursuing a (scary) hot love scenario. It could be rocking some biz/shared resources thing that it allows you to move forward on your own financial terms. It could be a psychological shift, where you internalise your own locus of power re any tricky, ongoing power trippy scenes in your life. It’s about claiming what’s yours, but also in a way that empowers and supports your most primary, intense personal relationships to thri


TAURUS/TAURUS RISING “…and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight, hunting for you, for your hot heart, Like a puma…” Pablo Neruda Randy Mars is parked in your love sector for another 6 months, so you have quite a lot of energy directed toward partnership, actually. So how are you going to direct this libidinous force? You are pair bonded and you realize how much of an awesome team you are; you join forces and go conquer the world together re some cool shared vision. You are in love/lust, and not scared to fully give chase in order to make this thing happen. You are fearlessly ardent and passionate, and your lover is more than likely to respond in kind. Hot-blooded romantic confiden


GEMINI/GEMINI RISING “You be you and I'll be me, today and today and today, and let's trust the future to tomorrow. Let the stars keep track of us. Let us ride our own orbits and trust that they will meet. May our reunion be not a finding but a sweet collision of destinies!” Jerry Spinelli It seems that getting your love life as sane, emotionally intelligent and stable as possible right now is the best way to make space for the cool inspiration, and crazy possibilities presenting themselves re the Gemini career. So Saturn in your partnership sector/Neptune in your biz sector is either: You’re genuinely in love, and ready to cut any crap re this and honour the connection with some clear comm


CANCER/CANCER RISING If you can get the day-job scenario right, as a kind of functional base of operations, you’re way more likely to score the freedom to travel/ pursue academic goals/live a life of adventure at some point in the foreseeable future. Or put another way, if you’re willing to focus upon cultivating some real international/adventurous/travel/academia/visionary goals; you’re so much more likely to savvy the right attitude to a day-job scenario that serves those very needs. It’s about the notion of doing something you love & never having to work another day in your life. Neptune says dream big & Saturn says work kick-ass hard at it –always an excellent combo, obviously; and now i


LEO/LEO RISING I’m guessing that your mind has been wandering to matters fiscal recently, where you’ve been pondering future earning schemes that could change your life and/or how to finance whatever life-changing scheme is currently unfolding in your world. “Destiny is usually just around the corner. Like a thief, a hooker, or a lottery vendor: its three most common personifications. But what destiny does not do is home visits. You have to go for it.” Carlos Ruiz Zafón Money matters right now. Not because money actually matters in of itself, on a spiritual level (obviously), but because Destiny is calling you to new pastures and it’s happening in your earnings/cash sector. Like you might b


VIRGO/VIRGO RISING "Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun. Shine on you crazy diamond." Pink Floyd I bet you’re feeling more excited than usual about being you right now. Like you’re totally plugged into a sense of your own destinal path, and a willingness to take a risk on being your best self no matter what, and you like it! This is all about lucky, expansive, positive Jupiter conjunct the Destiny Point recently in your sign, and it’s such a beautiful thing. Your instincts about who you are in the world and what you came here to do (same thing) are so wonderfully clear. Between now and June all manner of synchronous events around you, and intuitive insights on your part gui


LIBRA/LIBRA RISING The month begins with a flare up of bitch goddess Lilith in your sign challenging anarchic Uranus in your sector of love, partnership and other people. This could be hot and/or could be trouble. You: Respect my values, let me be me and for fuqs sake stop telling me what to do! But if you get on board with my wild ways, and appreciate the stuff I’m passionate about we can have a real good time together… Everyone else: I’m not reliable, predictable or pin-down able, and no, I won’t enable any of your safe assumptions about relationship. But if you can get on board with that, I’ll rock your world in a good way, if you’re up for a wild ride… Libra romance/personal connections:


SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING “He contained, even at an early age, a stirring and the desire to stir.” -Patti Smith, on the very Scorpionic Robert Mapplethorpe. So Mars has officially settled into Scorpio, and you’re getting a handle on all that crazy, lustful vitality currently throbbing through your veins. Your desire nature is even more powerful than usual right now (and that really is saying something), so you want what you want and you want it bad. And you’re ready to hustle your sweet patootie off to get it, if you know what I mean. Don’t forget that that this thing goes until August, so what you want to pace your efforts by remaining focused on tangible goals and a healthfully active, high Q


SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” Gautama Buddha Action planet Mars is lurking in your soul sector for ages; which could feel a bit tedious to the extent that your Saggy soul wants to be out there, seeking adventure in the wider world, but your true calling right now is more about slowing the fuq down and looking within, instead. “He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior.” Confucius Time to be highly conscious of your own, internal dialogue/attitudes etc, and recognising how your most impulsive actions in the world spring from the quality of your deepest beliefs about yourself. Thus do you c


CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING Venus is glamming up your personal charisma in the first half of Feb, so you begin the month all shiny and brimming with confidence…especially when Pluto heats up your Venusian charms around Feb 7th, and you totally get that it’s up to you to own your own power to creatively transform your scenario/whatever self-improvement schemes currently rock your boat. And yes, looking good and being unapologetically hot/talented etc in the world plays a part- you might as well flaunt it while you got it, huh? “…I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. To the logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one's self is as much


AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING “Speak in extremes, it'll save you time. ” ― David Bowie Your ruling planet, Uranus, is pretty bolshie and fuq-you to the system/petty bourgeois conventions at the best of times, and in opposition to Bitch Lilith this month is not exactly soothing your rebellious soul. Oh no. You’re arced up and ready to smash some outdated paradigms- even if they’re only the ones in your own head. Liberated thinking frees you from any tiresome old ideas that may have been holding you back (obviously), and leads to liberating choices; including the choice to speak more clearly and directly at all times. I mean being who you are you would much rather shock and awe someone with your


Venus has a been getting her uninhibited wild on in Sagittarius recently (and thank fuq for that, as a release from all the other stressy astro going on), but that's about to change. The love goddess pulls herself together, polishes up her act and marches firmly into Capricorn from Jan 24th till mid Feb. Our values now lean toward a tougher work ethic, embracing our most unapolagetically pragmatic, lucrative ambitions and a bit of sexy, fiercely dignified self-control in all things. Success matters now, and yes that includes serious wealth creation, solid material outcomes and the status that comes with all that. But it's also about the satisfaction of setting some clean, high-end intentions

LEO FULL MOON ...are we gonna WALK our TALK or WHAT?

Leo is all about living our passions boldly, from the heart, no matter what. So the rising tides of the Full Moon in Leo -exact 12.45pm, Jan 24th- make courageous, authentic living pretty much an emotional necessity at this point. We may have noticed that any areas of life where we have been operating inauthentically, or chicken-shit less-than-real have cut us down big time recently, yes? Ok so time to pick ourseves up, dust ourselves off and get with the programme of our path/true calling/personal spunk/whatever. We have Saturn square Neptune saying might as well put some elbow grease into your dearest dreams OR admit you can't be bothered and forget about it. Or, put another way, magic up


Image: Aline Weber by Richard Bush for i-D “Destiny is usually just around the corner. Like a thief, a hooker, or a lottery vendor: its three most common personifications. But what destiny does not do is home visits. You have to go for it.” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind The North Node of the Moon, also known as the Dragon's Head or Destiny Point, is all about looking forward toward the broadest possible understanding of our biggest, most brilliant future possibilities in life. The Dragon looks forward, not back, in order to see where he's going as he flies along on his fire-breathing journey; so in which direction does he fix his gaze; and toward what destination is he magica


We're in Capricorn season, and an extraordinary Capricorn Man has just passed away... An artist of the highest order, a rebel and innovator, a cooler than cool inspiration...vale David Bowie. And yes, we can be heroes... thank you for reminding us David x


Image: via New Moon in Capricorn today, exact 12.30pm, AEDT. New Moons are always a download of fierce, refreshed work ethic in Capricorn; and Pluto on board basically multiplies this times a million! Want to really get ahead, and realize some satisfying personal achievement in the coming month? Ok, how much gritty perseverence, and genuine, sustainable determination do you have up your sleeve? cos it's kinda time to get in touch with that! And if you want to transform some of the nitty gritty emo (ha, I just typo'd nitty grotty emo-and it's kinda felt like that, huh, in a cleansing, emo colonic kinda way) that's been coming up recently into a refreshed, clean new connection


Image: Darryl Hannah by Helmut Newton How fuqing intense has this week been???? Everyone seems to be dealing with techie nightmares (I personally have learnt the invaluable lesson of always have a back-up laptop lying around in case your new mac, you know, dies in the middle of a website launch), hard-core emo shizz, and I think every client I've seen this week is in the midst of some heavy break-up/romance hell..uurgh thank you Mercury retro with seething Scorpio Moon chaser. Anyway thank goodness for these few days of Moon in Sag, to give us a little rising-above-it levity and positive visualisation. Today and friday are all about brisk walks, fresh air, exercise endorphins and ok, maybe a


Mercury station retrogade today, and starts cruising backwards from Jan 7th. These few days are often called the 'storm phase' of Mercury retrograde; and a great time to watch out for especially fraught mis-communication; misunderstandings and unwitting verbal clangers are everwhere. ....Much better, perhaps, to vibe enigmatically detached, and observe the lay of the land a little before saying too much right now, huh?
