Venus trine Jupiter: a rich harvest comes only after hard work

The first thing you’ll notice when you look at today’s chart isn’t Venus trine Jupiter.

Those who’ve been experiencing a similar loss of bearings will be [read more...]

Pluto retrograde: confronting the shadow self

With Pluto retrograde from 17 April until 27 September we are given an opportunity to explore our darkness and confront the shadow self. Our shadow is all the parts of ourselves we disown.

Venus in Aries: the courage to openly express your love

From 6 April Venus in Aries will bring a shift in how we do relationships and connect with others.
