The Sun & Uranus are snuggled up today, creating both excitement & instability. While some folks love the electricity & dynamic energy of ⚡️Uranus⚡️, for others it can be quite destabilising.
Since Uranus entered Taurus last year (May-Sept) we started to get an incling of that which was up for overhaul. On a personal level relationships, ideologies, employment, finances, family dynamics all started to reveal the deeper rifts of core dissatisfaction.
Now that this transit is in full swing we’re staring into the mirror of chaos; we don’t have control & the more we feed that lie, the more complicated we make the simplicity of life.
What we DO have when we allow chaos into our consciousness is creative freedom. Without desperately trying to control the winds that blow through our lives, we can remember that we are the magic ~ that it’s not something to be attained & possessed ~ & it’s not something we can manufacture, only work with.
As Uranus is often associated with ⚡️lightning⚡️ & Taurus takes on an Earthy -of the body – resourceful shape, we can re-learn what it is to live WITH nature, an integral part of it, co-collaborating. When we become conduits for the energy that’s BUSTING to come through, we step back into our 💚heart centre💚 & release the stress of trying to be, criticising & controlling.
Depending on how invested we are we might resist the changes, but Uranus ultimately wants to free us from that which inhibits. In earthy Taurus it’s calling us to WAKE UP while still in the body, to dare to meet life with fresh, open eyes & to fully dance the dance that we are!
I’m teaming up with @them to offer you some Queer Astrology guidance.
Hit me up with your queer-ies, questions, cross-checks and concerns.
Whether you’re Saturn Returning, your crush hasn’t noticed you, Venus Retrograde has already thrown you for a loop or that dream job is still elusive – the stars are asking to guide you.
The thing about the desert is that it holds the memory of the Ocean. The thing about water is that it never forgets. 🌊🏜 💎
No matter when we exist throughout history, all living beings seek shelter and safety. While Aries (the 1st Cardinal sign) is out hunting, fearlessly gathering food, Cancer is creating our home, stoking the hearth fire so that we can all be nourished by togetherness under the same roof. It knows that if we don’t have each other, we will not survive.
In 2018, we may not be setting up home in a cave on the side of a rock, but our needs are no different to those of our ancestors. As social creatures, we all seek to belong, to be nourished, to protect and be protected.
This eclipse on July 12th activates our basic instincts, & in this there is increased potential for projection. There can be the desire to cut coldly that which has rejected us, threatened our survival and undermined our need to belong. The challenge is to sit in any uncomfortableness without reaction or retaliation.
When we say things are cool but they’re eating away at our very need to belong, we undermine ourselves and gaslight those we actually care about. …read the full Crystalscope HERE.

Our last Astro Tattoo session in Victoria was with our queer elder who turns 73 when the Moon is next new & Uranus enters Taurus. To mark the change she feels coming she got her 1st ever tattoo! ✨
The more we do this project, the more profound I realise it is. To be able to sit with one of our elders, who was born when the world was a different place & look back at transits to her life & changes in the world was an honour.
Her 1st Tattoo is just for her, representing her past, present & future, laid out through the beautiful symbolism of astrology & reflected back in story & now as a beautiful reminder in her body. #blowsmeaway
🎶 Each session we listen to hits of the year you were born, as those songs were born & new in this world when you were. In this case we listened to the hits of 1945.🎶
For a world just emerging from war, the sounds were very relaxing. It was a time when people sat & listened to music, not in passing, but to a whole record, gathered round together. It was a defo change of pace from the 80’s & 90’s playlists that we often play.
We start the Salt Spring leg of our #islandtour today. The energy of the land here is palpable…& the way landscape shapes people & their energy is a welcome change to our city vibes.
It’s #ariesseason , Equinox, Spring in the north and Autumn in the south and Mercury is turning retrograde. OOOPH! Where ever you are on the planet, there is a shift in gears at this time.
. #aries is the initiator of the zodiac – like this image by the magical @jfancydesigns – Aries represents the spark of life, the thing we all require to get up and keep going, the inspiration we need to move through challenges, and the sense of play that reminds us to stay focussed but enjoying the journey. Are you having fun?
If you’re like so many people I now right now, the answer is no. The heavy hitters in the sky are really pushing us all. Saturn, Pluto AND Mars are ALL in Capricorn, building toward something you can no doubt feel brewing. The tension needs direction, and this Aries season is no doubt going to test where your energy lies.
Mercury is turning retrograde on the 23rd and will keep running backwards all the way to the New Moon on April 15th. Whoa! What a lunation cycle! Following this retrograde period and New moon, Chiron will step from the deep well of collective Pisces pain into “let’s get real about what I’M doing about this” Aries…while the Sun snuggles up to dynamic Uranus for what will no doubt be ‘exciting’ times. OK!
Aries! Aries! Aries!
This next month is HOT! Sparks fly from fire & when we’re not tending to the fire someone is bound to get burnt. Fire also warms us and inspires us to dream and vision and to put all of our energy into what feeds our spirit.
Aries energy is all about getting things going, so instead of being burnt by this fire, set some things in motion in your life. Be daring! Give yourself a challenge! Initiate a project, a self-care routine, write letters to your local MP about where you see injustice, or write love letters to your self. This #retrograde period starts off with Mercury and Venus discussing their place in this revolution. What is being whispered to you at this time about your place in this divine madness of life?
If nothing else, let this Aries season remind you of how special and deeply important it is that you are here, participating in the unique way you do, and show up with your own mark of magic.
We’re walking through that space-time between eclipses.
The stirring is real & the undertow is strong. What are you leaving behind & what are you walking towards? 🦋
Eclipses ask us to let shit go to allow space for what represents authenticity. It’s not always easy & it’s often not smooth. Walking through the portal from one eclipse to the other takes courage to remain clear & true. It’s the razors edge.
