Astrological Review of the Year 2010

Part 1: The Cardinal T-Square

(Click here for Part 2, which looks at some of 2010's major new stories)

2010 was a big year and not an easy one, there’s no doubt about that. Now 2011 beckons and it’s time to look forward with hope and optimism, but not before taking a little time out to cogitate and ruminate a while over the year that was twenty-ten.

The major story running through 2010 was the economy. After the banking crisis of 2008 and 2009, followed by ongoing and unprecedented monetary collapses at government level in countries such as Iceland, Greece and latterly Ireland, 2010 was a year of facing realities and making difficult and unpalatable decisions. Not just for banks and governments, but for businesses, public services and individuals alike. Astrologically, of course, this kind of crisis has long been predicted by astrologers, in anticipation of the Saturn, Uranus, Pluto cardinal T-Square, which peaked mid year with Jupiter’s ingress into Aries.

Mercury Retrograde Madness!

Well, Mercury Retrograde has hit Astroair hard, because my laptop died and I lost all my data! This is why there have been no posts here for a good while...

Fortunately, I found a laptop hospital in deepest darkest South-East London. Yes, it really was like a hospital, with a waiting room full of tense owners, stacks of magazines at least five years old and scary drilling, banging and beeping noises coming from the 'surgery' behind the screen.

The good news is that the laptop, at great expense, is now 'as new', shiny and clean and sporting a brand new hard drive. It's faster, smarter and yes, they retreived all my data as well! So now, with the craziness of Christmas behind us for another year it's time to get back on the blogging wagon again at last.

New Year's Resolution: Always back up my data! Always back up my data! Always back up my data!

Coming review of 2010!

Wishing a very Happy New Year to all of you who stumble across here.

with love…

December Astrology

Welcome to December, the month of midwinter in the North and midsummer in the South. December is a time of celebration and worship across a number of faiths including Hanukkah (Jewish), Al-Hijira (Islamic New Year), Bodhi Day (Buddhist), Yule (Pagan) and Christmas (Christian). Whatever you are celebrating, or even if you are just looking forward to some time off, I hope you have a wondrous December.

Astrologically, December begins with the Sun in Sagittarius, Venus freshly in Scorpio and Mercury freshly in Capricorn...

When Passions Run Deep

Venus in Scorpio prompts intense, obsessive and passionate expressions of affection and desire. There’s nothing shallow or pretty about this Venus placement. Secret liaisons and compulsive desires are not uncommon and moods are hot and deep. It won't always play out nicely, but ultimately this can be a purging and healing transit, so long as you are willing to surrender to Venus in Scorpio's hypnotic charms.

Serious Thinking
