Cancer New Moon: Setting the Table

It’s a big round table that we’re all sitting at, more or less together, and even those of us who grew up with wise elders and stable households are still frightened children, sometimes.

Like a summer road trip, the Sagittarius Full Moon carries a soupçon of joyful rebelliousness and a rowdy spirit of adventure. In those cramped quarters where your life has grown too small, or where you’re asking too little of yourself, you should be feeling good and restless about now....

Some of us lose the gift of delight as the years go by. In the grown-up world, so much depends on being regarded as knowledgeable, even expert, in ways that will help you win a political argument or be considered more valuable in your job. Information that bears out the flaws in one's logic...

Scorpio Full Moon: Hades Heart

In the eyes of the bloodthirsty, I see the reflection of my own struggle. And when I wish for us to find the grace to forgive even our murderous enemies, I'm no sweet violet crushed under heel, spreading the cloying, insincere fragrance of piety. I’m just a fellow savage, reaching for salvation.

Taurus New Moon: The Mother Ship

We’re all looking for something timeless and abiding to hold onto in an age when everything on top of the earth seems to be spinning faster and faster toward chaos.

Libra Full Moon: Befriending the Enemy

When I think about befriending people whose opinions, lifestyles, or politics are abhorrent to me, some flinty part of me digs in its heels and refuses to give in, loathe to give the impression of surrender. Why do most of us find it so difficult to befriend our enemies—and why is that those with...

Aries New Moon: The Beast in Me

Wherever Aries appears in your chart, you probably don’t play well with others.

Virgo Full Moon: Meaningful Habits

The Pisces/Virgo Full Moon asks the question: “Why have you turned the maintenance of your life into a drudgery to be avoided?” You can sweep the kitchen floor each evening and hardly notice doing it, beyond a vague desire to have it over with as quickly as possible. But imagine you instead give your...

Pisces Solar Eclipse: We Ride

We ride with urgency, because something is at stake, something fine. It has something to do with the way it feels to love people, the terrifying, trapdoor sensation of losing them, the redemption we feel when we sacrifice ourselves for someone else. It is about the ecstasy of merging with our fellows, like stars...
