Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of Scott Walker
Scott Walker, the Brit-pop heartthrob turned experimental dark wizard, passed away on March 22, 2019. Referred to by writer William Bennett as “the outsider who united metalheads, grandmas, and David Bowie,” as years passed Walker’s music brought a pop sensibility to the macabre.
Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of the RZA
Robert Fitzgerald ‘RZA’ Diggs, born July 5th, 1969 in New York City, is esteemed as one of the greatest hip-hop producers in music history. Longtime elected leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, he’s that Cancer holding down his ‘family, roots, tribe.’ Think the RZA may not be an emcee first? You’re correct, but he’s laid down quite a number of impassioned verses that burst through his slight impediment.

Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of Eliud Kipchoge
Eliud Kipchoge of Nane County, Kenya, broke two hours in the marathon for the first time in human history on Saturday, October 12th, 2019, with a time of 1:59:40, and Jupiter directly conjunct his birth Venus at 19° Sagittarius. This coming together of the two benefics — Jupiter as principle of ideals, elevation and honor, Venus as principle of physical and social beauty, in Sagittarius, sign of long journeys and spiritual sojourn — is a powerful example of astrological transits by conjunction, corresponding to an unprecedented human achievement.
Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of Sacha Baron Cohen
Early in my conscious awareness of astrology, I was a fan of Goldschneider and Elffers' pop personology books' name for October 13th, "The Day of the Tough Cookie." It's a good if not direct reminder of Libra's instigating energy. A sign often softened by venusian characterizations that aren't -wrong- per se, it's sometimes easy to overlook Libra as a cardinal yang sign that stays out there getting it.
Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of Nikola Tesla
Happy 163rd birthday to one particularly brilliant Nikola Tesla, because you know he's fucking immortal. Today I will convey some facets of the celestial symbolism present at his birth, which took place under a Cancer sun and Libra moon.

Planetary Portraits - The Astrology of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
As the gravity of time steeps, stories deepen and human beings pass away just as they are born. These events sometimes seem to constellate around us at different speeds, in varying concentrations — like the loss of multiple loved ones, or the passing of cultural figures meaningful to us — but we know that such stories and endings surround every domicile, every dinner, every work commute, whether or not death happens to knock within a given period of our lives.

Pluto Enters Aquarius
Pluto entered Aquarius this morning, after 15 years in Saturn’s yin home of Capricorn. The ‘existential pressure-cooker’ planet was last in Saturn’s yang home of Aquarius from 1778 to 1798. It’s been over two centuries.

Planetary Portraits: The Astrology of The Weeknd
The Weeknd is one of the world’s biggest musical stars, an alt R&B sensation at once brooding and electric, a mythic figure both public and reclusive. His lyrics — dark, personal, sensual, syrupy — mix effortlessly with plateauing pop ballads, a given album often flitting back and forth from love-shackled lamentations to the ecstatic stimulation of starlight.

The Full Moon in Leo, with Saturn's Stare and a Liberation Frequency
The Full Moon in Leo peaks at 1:30pm EST on Sunday, February 5th, 2023, implicitly across from the Sun in Aquarius. These polar signs, the ‘fixed yang’ pair, share in ways a remarkably similar valence to my eyes, especially between their middle decans. The cresting, held breath of Leo’s regalia, filled with light as it wanes in many places, is not unlike the torch Aquarius must hold in the night and its umbral whispers.

Sun in Gemini II and Mars Opposite Pluto
With the two planets of more neutral charge — representing structure and movement around structures — in seeming backwards motion, and the elements of Air and Water emphasized by the current planetary spread, fluidity, adaptiveness and an open heart are certainly themes in the mood for a day.

Gemini I, Risks Undone, Eclipse Season and Mercury + Saturn Rx
As the first eclipse of this season nears, aspected tension between Mercury and Jupiter-ruled planets conjure a sense of risk and odds, swirling delight and disillusionment with the gambles of life — while Saturn's station asks us to redefine our momentum and frameworks of commitment.
