Happy Birthday Astroair!

Astroair Astrology is one year old today!

It’s been a fun year. 119 blog posts and approximately 100,000 words! I’ve certainly learnt something and I hope you, my readers, have too.

Thank you to everyone who’s read this blog and thank you for all your comments. Thank you also to all the other astrology bloggers who have added a link to this site on their blog, it’s a fine network and I really enjoy connecting with all my online astro-buddies (and if I haven’t yet added a reciprocal link, please give me a nudge).

I’d also like to thank and say hello to all the recent new readers from Taiwan and Hong Kong (thanks to http://rodmagic.com/)  and apologies for not being able to read your comments.

The highlight of the year has to be my involvement in the 2010 International Astrology Day Blog-A-Thon in March, which is a permanent collection of informative and helpful articles around the cardinal T-Square. When Donna Cunningham got in touch and asked me to coordinate the Saturn content I was thrilled and had great fun putting it together. I also met so many amazing astrologers, including CJ WrightNeeti Ray and Fabienne Lopez, and the talented astrologers who contributed their wisdom to the Saturn collection of articles.

With the T-Square still building, the Blog-A-Thon collection is now more relevant than ever. The links to all the collections are at the top right of this blog, or go to: http://2010astrologycarnival.wordpress.com/  

As well as the Blog-A-Thon articles, here are links to some of the other popular posts here at Astroair over the last year:

The Outer Planet Cycles Series: A number of Articles on the big outer planet cycles, including Saturn-Uranus, Saturn-Pluto, Jupiter-Uranus and more. Their influence on history, culture, politics, economics and on our personal lives.

A Uranus in Aries Brainstorm: Build a fire pit, don’t bear a grudge and other advice from a few Aries types

Uranus in Aries and Your Personal Mars Sign: A two part article looking at how your Mars could be affected while Uranus is in Aries

Chiron in Pisces – Water Over Rocks: A meditation on Chiron in Pisces (mentioned on the Mountain Astrologer Blog)

The Cardinal T-Square – What’s It All About: A brief overview of the T-Square themes, plus stats and dates for the major aspects involved

Working With Eclipses: The 19 year old Eclipse cycle, transits to Eclipse degrees and Eclipsed Moon Families explained

And if you’re into horror movies, here’s my astrological take on The Descent. This article was also published in the Journal of the Astrological Association of Great Britain

More recent favourites include:

The Solstice and the Grand Cross

Capricorn Lunar Eclipse: Letting Go and Yin and Yang

Feedback and a chance to win a birthday present from Astroair.

One year on, I would love to hear what you think about this blog. What you like, what you don’t like, what you would like to see more of or less of. I’m not looking for compliments (or insults) I would just like some feedback so I can plan for a successful year two at Astroair. Please leave a comment below, a comment on my Astroair Astrology or Mandi Lockley Facebook page or email me at mandi@mandilockley.com

Anyone who gives feedback, or even just drops by with a quick line and says hello, will go into a draw to win a personal year ahead astrology report, a birthday present from Astroair.

Thanks once again to everyone who’s stumbled here and stayed long enough to read a few astro-snippets… you are very much appreciated.

Here’s to year two!

With love,
Mandi
