The politics of religion at the end of the Age of Pisces

Why do some people have difficult charts, 1966 edition

http://gty.im/1325828628 As someone with a difficult chart myself, I have long pondered this question.  For me, nothing supports the idea of working out issues, problems and situations through multiple lifetimes than astrology.  We are born with these charts before anything happens to us, and when we have a difficult chart and our life patterns […]

Astrological forecast for the week of September 6, 2021: Mostly sunny with a hint of regret

This week we have no major planetary aspects causing trouble, and the week begins with the energies of the Virgo New Moon (catch up here if you missed it) lingering for the first few days. New Moons bring that sense of a clean slate, and here we have a trine from Uranus which helps to […]
