Aquarius No More?

Dear Mystic, I have been reading your blog for a bit and am now a recent subscriber. I have gotten an astrology reading and I also input my birth information to get a chart from astro.com. Both have revealed facts that have me questioning my allegiance to Aquarius. I always thought I was one of those born on a cusp. My husband profusely believes that I am a typical Aquarius. …

Astro Rik Mayall

Well THAT was sad.  Obviously. And kind of weirdly apt for Mercury Retrograde in that the passing of Rik Mayall prompts not so much a trip down memory lane as a full bore thrusters out charge down memory motorway. His Rick on The  Young Ones was such an iconic portrayal of a pretentious young tosser (that show so GOT a certain era of share housing it was the illo to …

Drugs and alcohol run through …

Pisces: The Sign Of Self-Redoing

It happens every ten days or so. Some poor person emails, freaked out because they’re read that Pisces (or the 12th House) is the sign/house of “self-undoing.”  To be clear: people wrote all sorts of schizz in the olden days and some of it is hideously fatalistic and without the benefit of, well, modernity.  Read some old astro texts and wow out at how sexist they are, for example.

Lou Reed Was Archetypal Mercury In Aquarius

Lou Reed was Mercury in Aquarius. It was conjunct Venus and trine Jupiter in eloquent Gemini. A Jupiter trine amplifies everything. He was a genius muso, artist and unabashed party animal. But he was problematic in his personal life and hell to interview. You can see how such a strong and self-directed Mercury would balk at the artificial deep but-not-really circus of a press interview. Or the demands of publicity …
