When Neptune meets Saturn … aftermath

Yesterday morning I read the inspiring blog post about Neptune turning retrograde on June 13 from “The Butterfly Witch”. In it she wrote “Basically, in Neptune retrograde, the fog lifts …”. Well in the case of my karmic-relationship-experience – about which I shared some astrological insights over the last 6 months – it certainly did. […]

You and Me and Karma makes Three … part 2

And it’s a wrap. Well at least a temporary one around my right wrist. 😉 This is the follow up to my post from early march “upps … or: You and Me and Karma makes Three” I visited the charming “Rabenschwarz” (meaning raven-black) Tattoo Parlour today and it took only about 10 minutes and that […]

upps … or: You and Me and Karma makes Three

Sometimes it seems a whole lotta karma can be set in motion with the slightest of triggers. In my case this was a very short word. Well technically not even a real word. Just ‘upps’ (german for ‘whoops’). It took me some time to figure out the astrological triggers. Rather unsurprisingly all four of the […]

When Neptune meets Saturn … or: how did I get here?

With a longterm Neptune (Lord of Dreams) transit approaching the cusp of my 7th house of relationships in Pisces (Neptune’s natal […]

Those twelve nights from today until january 6 – the shakespearian 12th night – are called “Rauhnächte” in Germany, which actually refers to the word “Rauch” meaning “smoke”. In “the old days” people used to burn essences to clean the house […]

Bingewatching … Doctor Who

When it comes to Doctor Who I’m very much like Sheldon Cooper: Source: ShitSheldonCooperSays on tumblr 😉 Despite being a cult series since the 60s in England (and in fact the longest running sci-fi show of all times), the Doctor was really practically unknown in Germany until the early 90s, when I saw my “first […]

Sunday songs from my favorite German voice: Max Raabe

Anyone who says that German sounds just awful hasn’t listened to Max Raabe’s velvety voice! He is in fact a legitimate opera singer (bariton), but chose to sing slightly different songs (and often in head voice) 😉 Some may know the 20s orchestra “Comedian Harmonists” – Max founded the Berlin “Palast Orchester” in 1986 and […]
