Bad Hair Day – Uranus in Aries

If you are gravitating towards the right in politics, or even to the far right, then it’s important to do something with your hair. What appears to work here in the 21st century – if you are a man – is a fine and perhaps unruly mop of hair, if possible blonde. Do this whilst Uranus is still in Aries . Read More

Client Stories as Metaphors

This article is also available as a video and talk at www.astrologyuniversity.com

“As soon as clients say something, they start revealing the meaning of their horoscope. When they tell a story, then they may be revealing a theme that has affected them for their whole life. Stories form themes, like pearls on a string, traceable to a key experience, which formed their character. Adrian will show how to identify aspect patterns that correspond with stories, leading to a new understanding of a transformative core experience.”

Really, anything we do or say, at any moment in time contains detailed information about who we are. Quite apart from the micro-expressions and body language, which reflect what we are really thinking, even the casual remarks we make, and the stories we tell, reflect deep experiences from the past that have formed us. As we go about our daily lives, walking down the street, meeting people, in the office, shopping or whatever, the universe is performing an exquisite interactive dance with us, and although we see ourselves as separate, we are as one. Everything and everyone that we attract into our sphere has a connection with our past, as we build up a life story, which we constantly reinforce in the telling. These are the stories the client tells the astrologer, and that the astrologer sees reflected in the horoscope – a spiral of related events which have their roots in our past. Read More

Trends For 2016

Looking back at 2015 we can see that some of the extremism we witnessed from 2011 – 2014 connected with the rare set of tense interactions between Uranus and Pluto (something that last took place in the 1930’s) abated, even though there were and still are extreme manifestations of the ideologically extreme views, which this combination evokes.

Astrology and Statistics

Astrology is tricky. Just when you think you have a solid and reliable interpretation, things change. Interpretation in astrology is like trying to hit a moving target, and that moving target is Time itself. Perhaps this is why trying to come up with scientific or statistical results, which prove astrology, is such a challenge. Read More

BREXIT

(This article was written in March and printed in The Mountain Astrologer in May 2016. Now I am making it available here.)

David Cameron is clearly a nice guy. Wouldn’t you be, if you had Libra rising with Venus in Libra, just like lovable Bill Clinton? He is also a person born in the lap of privilege and luxury, educated in Eton and subsequently Oxford, which is well reflected by his Moon in Leo on the 11th house cusp conjoining Jupiter. He has launched Britain on two potentially disastrous referendums – the Scottish vote on independence in 2014 and the imminent vote on June 23rd 2016 to decide whether the UK will remain in the European Union. Perhaps, when you are a strong Libran type, you just like asking people to decide things for you. Read More

Ed Miliband for PM?

It would be a strange thing if you could predict the result of elections. All that rushing around canvassing voters, all that money spent on adverts, all the passionate debates – these would be unnecessary. Fortunately polls and pundits (and astrologers) get their predictions wrong all the time, so elections continue to make life interesting. How fascinating it is, for example, that in the USA there is an almost exact split between two parties – Republicans and Democrats. The difference between these voters is so deeply rooted that half of them disapprove of even having a relationship with someone supporting the opposite party. (Note 1) And it is probably the same story for supporters of the Labour and Conservative parties in Britain. Somehow our political values resonate with the core of our being.
