Winter is coming …

Tomorrow the Sun will move into Cancer and we’ll experience the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Which also means that from now on the days will get shorter again and – yes – winter is coming … As my natal Moon is in the last degrees of Gemini I always feel […]

Oops. The Novel. First Mindmap.

To put the incredible amount of almost 35k single chatmessages from the last 9 months to a good use, I’ve decided to use them in an autobiographical novel about my strange Neptune/Saturn/Karma relationship. As you can see from my first mindmap of acts/chapters it will be not *too* serious, also not too focused on astrology […]

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 …”.

The large city outside is already buzzing with energy. I get up, naked, wandering into the kitchen, checking the clock: 7 am. Jetlag, here I come. […]

When Neptune meets Saturn. Or: time for a reality check.

During the last 2 years, I learned some important things about my “comfort zone”. First of all, that it actually wasn’t what it seemed to be, but that it somehow had evolved without asking. With a longterm Neptune (Lord of Dreams) transit approaching the cusp of my 7th house of relationships in Pisces (Neptune’s natal […]

12th Night.

It’s december 25 and I’m preparing an interesting ritual for the 12 following nights. 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 […]
