Saturn and Endings … for my ‘Papa’

My dad died about 3 weeks ago. He had been ill for some years, after surviving tongue-cancer in 2005, he was diagnosed with COPD. But he was unable to quit smoking. And so, on a warm evening in July, a beautiful sunset glowing outside his hospital window, he closed his eyes forever while his 2nd […]

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 […]

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?

continued from here Two weeks ago … Waking up in a strange bed. Thousands of kilometres from home. A warm, naked man sound asleep beside me under the sheets. 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 […]
