How To Be More Scorpio

Scorpios themselves are often baffled by their archetypal Scorpio sign traits. “I don’t have any of them,” they’ll sniff disdainfully, deftly concealing an incoming message notification from scrutiny.

The Real Southern Hemisphere Astrology

If you were born in the Southern Hemisphere, your birth chart is not completely accurate. And no, not because of any 13th sign or peripheral factor.

Announcing My New Takes On 21st Astrology – Part One

Retrograde Mars Mission Central Command

We are nearly halfway through an unprecedented* era of juiced-up Mars Vibe. The downsides are obvious: trade, climate, and viral wars, along with a whole lot of agitated or ineffective people who need to be managed, helped, or avoided. But what are the upsides? More autonomy, better management – of yourself/your business -and audacity. Heightened self-assurance benefits relationships: less whimsical wish-fantasizing and more concise, direct dialogue. Cultural and economic meta-trendsRead More…
