Mystical Mystic

The lure of magical Mystic in Connecticut is irresistible to an astrologer like me.

So, on the US Memorial Weekend it was off to a little clapboard cottage on the beach to star-gaze and feel the wonderful tranquil serenity of the coastal water off Long Island Sound.

Long Island

It did not disappoint. Better still, Mystic has its own Planetarium which is small, but perfectly formed.

With Venus, Saturn and Mars visible in the night sky and Jupiter coming up around 3 am, not to mention the amazing Sagittarian Full Moon it was a wonderful sight. There is hardly any light pollution in the area, just the lights from the boats and a few houses so the planets and stars were sensational and accompanied by a resident orchestra of cicadas.

The beauitful view

The whole town is beautiful, charming and fixated by mermaids – and somehow here you can almost believe they exist! Then there’s the obligatory drop into Mystic Pizza made famous by Julia Roberts in the film of the same name and the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream Parlour where you can indulge in pistachio and cashew nut ice-cream. What’s not to like!

Destiny of a Duchess

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has definitely felt the arrival of Saturn in Libra over the past few months.

Sarah Ferguson caught in a 'sting'


She’s turned 50, lost her U.S. source of income, built up massive debt and caused a diplomatic incident over her Turkish TV documentary. Now she is the subject of a hugely embarrassing exposé for pocketing thousands of dollars in exchange for access to Prince Andrew.

Saturn is due back to Libra on July 21 when the karmic consequences will be made clear. The incident is brought to light on the Venus-Pluto opposition (falling directly on Fergie’s own Saturn in early Capricorn). This aspect is the chief undercover operator and dealer of dirty deeds.

When the Queen’s favourite daughter in law, Sophie Wessex was ‘stung’ by a British newspaper for the fake sheik debacle she was subsequently sheltered by the royal family. Fergie unfortunately is going to be hung out to dry – the royals’ modern equivalent of being hung, drawn and quartered.

Planetary and political tussles

With all the planetary tussles going on – Saturn opposing Jupiter and Uranus with Venus in between and then the Sun getting mixed up with Neptune its not much wonder we’ve got a coalition government in the UK.

As the impact of this dawns on everyone perhaps its as well to remember that oppositions themselves create TENSION. So with Cameron the Libran – known for diplomacy – fronting the thing coupled with a bit of Capricornian Clegg ambition thrown in this could be a good way to take things forward.

In our own lives just now – its bound to be a time of feeling pushed and pulled around. We need to look for our own coalitions…

Central Park Crazies!

I’ve seen so many crazies in Central Park. You never know what you’re going to see next.

One day it’s a dog in a dress, the next it’s a skate-boarder with pink hair.  But today I walked around the fountain and there was a guy in a wizard’s hat complete with wig sitting on the bench.

I tried not to stare.  But he said ‘Good Morning my dear’ in such a voice I felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Boy did I click my heels fast!

Saturn is back to Virgo today and Pluto has gone retrograde.  Maybe that’s why there’s a bit of an underground movement going on.
