This commentary was written in May 2019 and originally published in the Jun/Jul issue of The Mountain Astrologer. It was fun to re-read now (on October 21, 2019), the day Canada went to the polls. The election results: “Canada’s Trudeau retains power but will have a minority government”. Saved by the referenced Jupiter return (in the commentary linked below), but the streamlining squeeze of transiting Saturn is still in effect through November. Astrology is amazing.
A collection of astro-logical thoughts and conversations, for your reading and listening pleasure…
I’m thrilled to be writing this column for The Mountain Astrologer. Look for it in the student section of each issue. This column went to press in early March 2019 and was published in the April/May 2019 issue.
What fun to be interviewed for this thoughtful article penned by Julie Murphy for the online publication dandelion chandelier. Enjoy!
Cynthia Rose and I spent the penultimate hour of the astrological year talking about why the first day of a season is so significant. Listen and learn all about the March 2019 Full Moon in Libra on the Aries Point, the Vernal Equinox, Mercury retrograde in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus. Thank you, Cynthia for having me on your show again :)
Dear Avid Readers,
Chiron, the Wounded Healer will be in Aries until April of 2027, perhaps offering us an opportunity to repair some of the most disruptive effects that happened during rebel Uranus’s seven-year stay in Aries. Uranus in Aries brought you me-me-me to its shockingly self-reliant max: the gig economy, selfies, cars without drivers and drones come to mind. But what does it mean to be self-reliant in a world that feels like it’s falling apart? What’s our connection? Who are we, anyway?
Chiron was last in Aries from 1968 – 1977. Remember the 70s? They called it “the Me Generation.” In Aries, Chiron suggests the pain of self-denial and inaction. The challenge of Chiron in Aries is to heal the “wounded warrior” (a warrior is what Aries needs to be), through acts of courage and positive self-assertion. And that’s what Chris Flisher and I were talking about in February — here is the link — let me know what you think.
Dear Avid Readers:
I was delighted to be a guest on a recent edition of “Standing in the Sunlight,” hosted by Cynthia Rose MacCaw on OmTimes Radio. I hope you enjoy listening to our chat as much as we enjoyed having it. Here is the link. Thank you, Cynthia!
Dear Avid Readers,
I’m delighted to share this link to a recent conversation with astrologer/artist Chris Flisher. Chris has been interviewing fellow astrologers for over a decade on his weekly internet show, “Turning of the Wheel.”
Gratitude to Chris for the kind invitation — it was fun!
This article was published in the August/September 2017 issue of The Mountain Astrologer. It starts like this:
Thanks to the November 2016 election and a well-timed ISAR conference, astrology generated a lot of press last fall in mainstream publications. Even The Wall Street Journal wrote about Hillary Clinton’s unconfirmed birth time and the challenge it posed for astrologers striving to predict the election outcome. The Wall Street Journal — wow! That’s great exposure for astrology, right?
I’m not convinced….

When someone makes news, the horoscope is hot — whether that someone is alive or not. What’s happening when dearly departed souls return to haunt the headlines? This article — my first for The Mountain Astrologer — was published in the December/January 2017 issue. Astrodienst selected it as a feature article shortly thereafter — read it here:
“There’s nothing wrong with a little guesswork, but when it comes to real, bona fide intel on what’s going on in the always-turbulent world of chic, we turned to the experts, Astrologer Elisabeth Grace and psychic Peri Lyons to give us the dish on the futures of the most-watched designers in Paris. Grace studied the charts and Lyons channeled her sixth sense to provide some insight into how they’re faring in their roles both brand new and relatively recent. Did their different techniques produce similar results?”
