New Moon in Aries: Sustainable Activism

This last week I’ve taken a different tack with my running: pacing myself according to my heart rate. (In full disclosure, I’ve hardly run at all through Winter, opting for walks instead, so I’m picking up the pieces here this Spring!) The idea is pretty simple: keep your heart rate within a particular band of […]

New Moon in Pisces: Sustaining our Vision

Sending a belated welcome to this brand new lunar cycle that arrived over the weekend! The New Moon was at 23° Pisces, exact on: Sat 13 Mar, 4.21am (CST) Sat 13 Mar, 10.21am (GMT) Sat 13 Mar, 9.21pm (AEDT) True to Pisces form, I felt wordless, and my weekend was filled with spaces of being […]

As I was saying here, I keep an eye out for thyroid stuff, cos it’s in my genetic stream. I also know that […]

Full Moon in Libra: Remembering Our Artisan Selves

Full Moon in Libra: What’s your ‘subject’?

The other night, as an unconscious Spring seed, I started reading Steven Pressfield’s latest book The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning. You might remember Steven from The War of Art fame… where he writes about how an epic battle with Resistance is part of every creative […]
