Can we have a break now?

June 19, 2011

Ai Wei Wei’s beautiful sculptures of Chinese zodiac animals are currently at Somerset House in London. They are re-creations of those that were made for the Qianlong Emperor’s European Palace. Originally the animal sculptures were fountains that spouted water at the appropriate hours that make up the Chinese astrological system. Now, as East meets West they make an extraordinary and somewhat displaced sight. Poignantly, their creator is himself displaced under house arrest in China.

Feeling totally eclipsed?
June 13, 2011

It’s one of those rare totally eclipsed Full Moons on Wednesday that speaks volumes to all those born under the sign of Sagittarius and Gemini. But in collective soup terms this kind of eclipse is really a kind of excessive, extra helping that threatens to spill over the sides.

If you could do with some love and compassion
June 5, 2011

tune into Guanyin, the universal Mother and water goddess of compassion – one of the number one deities in Asia. Recently I visited a temple high above Hangzhou (the ancient Song dynasty capital) in China. Every day people make offerings to the tall beautifully carved statue of Guanyin, the thousand armed goddess of giving. No-one goes unheard. As this is a week astrologically charged with Neptune, the planet of surrender, wisdom and insight this is a powerful time to access this spiritual energy.

June 1st – Gemini eclipse
May 26, 2011

June is going to come in with a bang as the eclipsed New Moon in Gemini indicates a brand new cycle. Of course, it’s super-important for the twins, but all signs will get a swish of that stimulating Gemini energy.

Venus, Mercury and Jupiter conjoin.
This is the week when the universe will plant a big kiss on your cheek!

To have and to hold
May 2, 2011

The sign of Cancer is in the ascendancy. Ever since Diana brought this most personable of signs front of house we have been in thrall to the Cancerian emotional connection. Cleverly, she made William in her own image and now we have a Crab King in the making. Diana’s most beautiful legacy remains her considerable gifts as a mother, strengthening and encouraging her son’s personal values so that he was able to marry for love. The new Duchess of Cambridge has her Moon in Cancer – with a resolute sun in Capricorn. That Cancerian sincerity is threaded through her family. Carole and Michael Middleton even share their wedding anniversary with Prince William’s birthday (June 21) and if that wasn’t enough Michael Middleton is also a Cancerian born June 23rd. Not much wonder this is the father-in-law the Prince calls Dad. He feels utterly at home with them all. Kate and William’s relationship was forged in the crucible of student domestic bliss as they worked out their cooking rotas and rubbish bins at St Andrews University. This has been followed by a peace and quiet cottage in Anglesey. We can expect their palace headquarters to be a real home – more family than formality. How refreshingly normal. Diana’s love lives on.

East meets West

This week’s copy comes to you from Shanghai where the Full Moon rises brightly over The Bund.

Rising signs
April 10, 2011

I’ve been asked to write about rising signs. Sometimes known as the ‘ascendant’ – it is the sign that is rising on the horizon at the time of your birth. It can be the same as your sun sign if you are born around sunrise. If your ascendant differs from your Sun sign – for instance you are Capricorn with Libra rising then you engage with the world as a Libra (charming, socially skilled, aiming to please) yet at your core you are Capricorn (disciplined, hard working, resilient). This is why we often feel people don’t seem like their sun sign. The ascendant is the first thing we see about them.
