Venus And Pluto Conjunct in Capricorn 1

My boyfriend stopped talking to me the other day. And there was some build-up. It wasn’t completely out of the blue. We had, shall we say, opposing um needs. And yet. It’s the thing I haven’t been blogging about. Thinking about. Moping about. But not really writing about. Well, dear readers, star gazers, the time […]


The Stars Today: Upgrade Your Altar 8

You want to know how I’m using this Earth energy?

Mercury is the mind/words/writing, and Uranus? Intuition, which I believe is related to Inspiration and, thus, the breath. This is elementary but how easy it is […]
