Picture two dancers conquering a partner dance on the dance floor. I know you've seen it. Maybe they were dancing swing, salsa, tango, whatever. But they were good. They were a marvel to watch. Wow. They push off each other, they pull in each other. One leads, the other follows. They move as if they are two, yet one. They appear so natural that they literally are the music...Read More

Popstar The Weeknd was born with a tight conjunction of Venus and Saturn. Venus is the archetype of love, pleasure and art. Saturn is the archetype of negation, restriction and the tests of time.
In The Weeknd's recent video for his song "I Feel it Coming" he is on a barren planet singing to his lover, who appears before him...Read More
We live in the age of space exploration. A long line awaits those eager to pledge their lives to the colonization of Mars. NASA recently announced their intention to revisit the Moon. The stars are dazzling a race that wants desperately to survive.
Space exploration holds even more immediate bearing on our planet's survival than NASA has envisioned...Read More
Saturn symbolizes the great reality principle that bounds, blocks and negates. Pluto is the archetype of volcanic power and drive. If you combine these archetypes and apply them to the archetype of Venus (love, art and beauty) you get a volcanic drive to love that is just as volcanically negated or blocked, birthing the taboo love...Read More
This post goes out to those born between 1987 and 1989, when Saturn, Uranus and Neptune were conjoined in the sky. This astrological combination is so rare that not only will those born with it will never see the same combination again in the sky, but neither will their children nor their grandchildren...Read More

Spontaneous Ritual is seeing every event in life as a ritual to honor the divine. Celebrating spontaneous ritual does not mean we have to stop creating our own intentional rituals. But it does mean that we don't have to stress about the perfection of our rituals...Read More
I was on a walk taking care of an errand. It was a gorgeous day. Some tough times were behind me. I was experiencing a new level of positive engagement with life and a rush of gratitude for that very engagement with life. I was smiling. My path segued with a the path of a woman grinning so widely at me I thought she must have recognized me from somewhere...Read More
One day recently I noticed that the Moon would cross my ascendant in Gemini at the very same moment that the Moon would rise over the eastern horizon that day. This occurrence is rare enough that I wanted to design a ritual to honor it...Read More
Saturn is the archetype of the heavy judgement, the reality check, the backbreaking burden of responsibility. Uranus is the archetype of spontaneity, fun, freedom, and disruption.
When we go toward freedom and run from responsibility we are coveting Uranus and rejecting Saturn. Our life will be out of balance and we will suffer...Read More

Did I say nondual astrology or nonduel astrology? Well, nondual astrology is the art of looking at distant bodies in space to understand our innermost natures. Why would we look at something so distant in order to understand something as intimate to us as our own life? Because inner and outer are divisions that ultimately don't exist. When you gaze into the deep quiet of the inky black sky at night you are looking into the deep well of your own innermost being...Read More
Of the spiritual offerings available today, the movement of nonduality is becoming more and more popular. Nonduality says that all of the divisions we perceive, such as the division between you and me, between this object and that object, between now and then, are ultimately illusions. What does this have to say about a practice in which we look to very distant bodies in space to inform us about our lives here on Earth?...Read More
