Power of Love… : Taurus New Moon, Venus opposite Pluto; Sun enters Gemini

May 2015 Monthly Horoscopes (Sample)

2015 – 2016 and beyond Horoscopes…

We’re a few days past the Taurus New on May 18, 2015, and in a fertile new cycle.

Mercury stationed retrograde in Gemini, on May 19, 2015 and there’s hidden, buried information that 11161343_10152721444290706_8596146792109740340_nhas surfaced. As a general precaution with Mercury retrogrades, especially with this one in Gemini, double check your communication and don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions.

You don’t have the full story yet, and there’s more coming to light as we move to the Sagittarius Full Moon on June 2, 2015.

For now the Sun is in its last couple of hours in its transit through Taurus and the Moon is in Cancer. Ground yourself in your values and water the seeds you’ve planted with the New Moon.

The Sun enters Gemini at 8:46 AM GMT on May 21, 2015 for the next four weeks, shedding light on a situation. You’re seeing another side to the story. Listen and learn.

Also there’s intensity building now as Venus in Cancer makes an opposition to Pluto in less than 24 hours on May 22, 2015; and squares Uranus in Aries on May 25, 2015.

Just yesterday, I read the news of a beach in California, destroyed by an oil-spill. This is Venus in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn, oil companies and the greed of humanity, destroying the oceans and our natural habitat. What’s gone is gone, but how can we raise individual awareness, so there is real change and we don’t end up destroying all that is precious in this world?

We are only as powerful or powerless as we imagine ourselves to be. It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of a situation like this, but we can start small, and start to become conscious of the power of money, our “buying power,” and educate ourselves on the products we buy, and ethics and (environmental and otherwise) policies of the companies we invest in.

In your life as well, a situation is evolving and although you may be seeing the darker side of a situation, you have more power than you realise to bring about a transformation. If you find yourself in a power-struggle, let go. There’s a lot of water under the bridge, (“and a lot of other stuff too” as Bob Dylan once sang) but if you can find a way to release it, you can turn a corner and reach a breakthrough over the coming days. Freeing you to explore new opportunities and horizons.

With Venus and Pluto, this generally comes down to sex, love, money, power. Often this will bring triangulations; in Cancer and Capricorn, there may be issues surfacing around the family, home, sense of security or perhaps even darker buried secrets surfacing.

With the Moon in Cancer as well, the emotional intensity is running high and with Mars and Mercury nearing a conjunction in Gemini, be careful about not just what you say, but how you say something.

Be fluid, flexible and rise above insecurities or emotional reactions. The more you can let go of old baggage, resentments or even hanging on to financial insecurities, you can empower yourself to bring about change, receive emotional support and open your self to a new wave of prosperity, abundance, security and happiness.

I have a Venus (and Mars)-Pluto opposition in my chart (Aries-Libra) and I can tell you from experience, this is not the easiest of aspects, but it is a very powerful one — offering tremendous potential for creative, personal, and financial transformation; if you can own your power.

I’ve found the best way to deal with the opposition, is to own both the energies of the opposition, and find the balance point within yourself. Especially with Venus and Pluto, this is finding the middle ground between desires and attachments to those desires.

Acknowledge the darker aspects of your own nature, or the unconscious patterns or attachments you have based on past conditioning from parents’ or society; as well as any feelings of betrayal. It’s often when people feel out of control, that they try to control their surroundings.

Avoid the desire to manipulate or control anyone or anything. You can’t change anyone or anything other than yourself. But you can control what you choose to feed, or where you invest your energy, money, time, love and what or who you give away your power to. Any obsessive desires, are likely coming from the ego and with Pluto the key is always “surrender.”

Follow your heart, nourish and nurture what you love, but let go of expectations or trying to control the outcome. When faced with a choice, make the loving one. Change always comes from within. Find the power to change what you need to change within yourself, then change can and will ripple out into your world.

Then you can experience the true power of love.

May 2015 Monthly Horoscopes (Sample)

Cosmic Diaries monthly Membership

Dear Friends,

We’re in Taurus season and just past a dramatic and powerful Scorpio Full Moon on May 4, 2015 at 13+ degrees opposite the Taurus Sun, with Jupiter at 13+ Leo forming a partile T-square to the lunation.

scorpmoonorbWith Jupiter in the mix — this is BIG.You can expect major revelations to come through in the days that follow, bringing huge opportunities if we dare seize them.

With Scorpio the message is always change; but this is the kind of change that happens deep in the shadows. And the Moon in Scorpio, suggests a deeper emotional process of transformation unfolding, deep below the surface where it can’t be seen, only felt.

Unfolding events are seeping into emotional crevices, leaving no room to hide from the demons that must be faced. But still there is a sense, of a child looking for monsters under the bed. It requires real courage to turn the lights on, but once he or she does, there’s nothing to be afraid of.

“That which never diminishes…” & the Aries New Moon + Horoscopes (Video)

Cosmic Diaries subscriber service

Aries New Moon + Horoscopes – Video


Greetings all!

We’re past the Aries New Moon, the Sun is in Taurus and not a moment too soon in my opinion…)

Before I get into the astrology, for those of you waiting for your 2015-2016 and beyond Horoscopes, here is an update. For those of you who have not ordered your Horoscopes yet, this is your final chance to pre-order them before their release and receive a special offer (details will also be sent to Cosmic Diaries members.)

Very significantly today is Akshaya Tritiya, (“that which never diminishes”) as per the Vedic LuniSolar calendar.

This is considered one of the 3 ½ most auspicious days of the year, due to the strength of astrological placements of the planets. Due to their astrological significance, you don’t need an astrologer to cast an election as they are considered Universally auspicious.

I spoke at SOTA’s astrology conference last year about these 3 ½ Days and their astrological, mythological significance and how you can apply the knowledge practically in your life for spiritual and material growth.

You can now purchase a recording of the 45 minute lecture “East meets West”, un-edited, here at this link or at the button below. (You will be emailed your password and a link to the audio file (downloadable) within 2-24 hours of purchase. I’ve been meaning to upload this for a while now, and given the occassion, I figured now was the perfect time.)

For more details on SOTA, and or if you would like to attend this year — here’s a link.

A1962857_10152349813810706_8827603517467785600_nkshaya Tritiya usually occurs on the third day after the Aries New Moon each year – when the Sun and Moon are exalted as per the sidereal zodiac. It is said what is initiated on this day, “never diminishes;” and it’s considered an auspicious day to get married and or to start any new venture.

So what do you want to initiate today, that you would like to grow flourish and be a lasting influence in your life? Pay attention to the seeds you are planting, nothing is too great or too small.

The recent Aries New Moon at 28+ Aries on April 18, 2015 at 6:56 PM UT, occurred heels of the recent very potent Eclipse season.

Over the past two weeks, since the Libra Lunar Eclipse we’ve seen revelations spill over in the light of relationships that have acted as a mirror, showing us the imbalances that need to be addressed so we can restore a sense of harmony and peace.

A New Moon is always a time to go inward to seek insight. In Aries, the sign that represents the ‘self’ this is a time for introspection, asking you to get in touch with the One indivisible inner reality. Continue Reading »

Libra Lunar Eclipse & Hanuman Jayanti

 Eclipse Special Discount on Astrology Consultations till Apr. 7, 2015 – $125

Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service


There is a girl in New York City
Who calls herself the human trampoline
And sometimes when I’m falling, flying
Or tumbling in turmoil I say
Oh, so this is what she means
She means we’re bouncing into Graceland
And I see losing love
Is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you’re blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow

Graceland, Paul Simon


Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Libra Total Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon exact in a few hours at 7:05 AM EDT; 12:05 PM GMT and 5:35 PM INT on April 4, 2015 at 14′ 24″ degrees of the Libra-Aries axis. (If you aren’t lucky enough to catch it in the sky, here’s a link to watch it LIVE online.)

'Hanuman Mistakes the Sun for a Fruit', a painting by Balasaheb Pant PratinidhiWe’re reaching the culmination of a powerful two week Eclipse period that began with the Pisces Solar Eclipse at 29+ Pisces, on March 20, 2015.

As the Sun and Moon align at 14+ degrees of Aries – Libra, they form a perfect T-square with Pluto bringing home, and moving us forward from, the lessons of the past two and half years since the Pluto – Uranus squares first aligned.

Also this Eclipse conjuncts the North Node, an important indicator of the forces at play drawing us ever closer to our destiny.

This Eclipse is in my 11th Natal house (friends) and 6th Solar house (health/work.) I was really sick and unwell for the past two weeks (I rarely fall ill, maybe once in a few years) and I’m just about coming back to life and a mountain of work. And I’ve heard of at least five different friends (some of whom I haven’t been in touch with for ages) going through intense transformations.

You don’t need astrology to tell you the energy is shifting powerfully — you can feel it. But still I can’t stress enough the potency of the planetary alignment allowing for major breakthroughs over the coming days.

Especially, if you have planets around the 14-15 degrees of the Cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn — you can be sure to be feeling this Eclipse most personally and profoundly. Get out of your head, into your body and move slowly. We’re also moving to a direct Jupiter station on April 8, 2015 (Jupiter has been retrograde since Dec. 8, 2015) adding to the dramatic revelations, spilling forth.


Also very significantly, today marks Hanuman Jayanti, the birthday of Lord Hanuman, an ardent devotee of Lord Rama.  Hanuman was the Sun of Lord Vayu (Wind God – Air/Libra) and there’s an interesting story about his childhood, which also gives us deep insight into the current energy (especially as the Sun moves to a conjunction to Uranus after the Eclipse) and the living myth.


From Wikipedia: “As a child, believing the sun to be a ripe mango, Hanuman pursued it in order to eat it. Rahu, a Vedic planet corresponding to an eclipse, was at that time seeking out the sun as well, and he clashed with Hanuman. Hanuman thrashed Rahu and went to take sun in his mouth.[19] Rahu approached Indra, king of devas, and complained that a monkey child stopped him from taking on Sun, preventing the scheduled eclipse. This enraged Indra, who responded by throwing the Vajra (thunderbolt) at Hanuman, which struck his jaw. He fell back down to the earth and became unconscious. A permanent mark was left on his chin (हनुः hanuḥ “jaw” in Sanskrit), due to impact of Vajra, explaining his name.[12][20] Upset over the attack, Hanuman’s father figure Vayu deva (the deity of air) went into seclusion, withdrawing air along with him. As living beings began to asphyxiate, Indra withdrew the effect of his thunderbolt. The devas then revived Hanuman and blessed him with multiple boons to appease Vayu.[12]

I’ll have more to say about this and how it relates with the current energy, in a video I plan to record later today covering the energy of this Eclipse. [Subscribers – I’ll be in your inbox soon with the Eclipse Horoscopes and Libra Lunar Eclipse to Aries New Moon report covering the energy of the next two weeks.]

In the meanwhile, below is an excerpt from the recent Eclipse report sent out to Cosmic Diaries subscribers two weeks ago. If you like what you read, please consider getting a subscription. Your subscriptions help keep this Blog, videos and work going and I’m grateful for your support.

I’ll be back with a video and more soon, until then I wish you a very Happy Hanuman Jayanti and Eclipse!




Pisces Solar Eclipse to Libra Lunar Eclipse report

An Excerpt ==

Libra Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

April 4, 2016, marks the Full Moon and Libra Lunar Eclipse at 14+ degrees with the Sun at 14+ Aries.

Full Moon’s bring revelations, completion and a chance for closure and with a Lunar Eclipse in Libra — the sign of “marriage” and relationships — relationships are changing deeply. With the Aries-Libra there is a need for balance between your needs and the needs of others. There are major revelations surfacing bringing you to a crossroad, presenting you with important choices. 

With the Sun at the South Node and the Moon at the North Node, avoid impulsive action or reaction. If anything throws you off balance, triggers panic or any heated emotions, take a deep breath before you react. In a tug of war it may be wiser to let go of the rope and give something space to balance out.

With the Sun moving to a conjunction to Uranus only days after the Eclipse on April 6, 2015, on the same days as Mercury trines Jupiter (about to station to direct) in Leo, you can expect huge dramatic revelations, unexpected developments and conversations as the energy of the Eclipse spills over. So be patient as more information surfaces.

Trust what’s unfolding is levelling out the playing field, allowing for greater equality and co-operation. If the scales are imbalanced everybody loses. And you’re learning how much more there is to hope for in a situation.

Avoid holding on to expectations, but be honest with yourself about what you want and how you feel. Then you can communicate honestly, respond consciously and creatively, (rather than (self) destructively) and find a way to restore peace, balance and harmony in any situation that has gotten heated.

Very significantly, Pluto is in a T-square to the lunation — offering the point of transformation and resolution. There is the potential to break through patterns of co-dependency and conditioning; especially, surrounding the traditional roles in relationships that you’ve seen in childhood, between parents, caregivers and or society.

Look at how far you’ve come over the past two years as the Uranus-Pluto squares aligned. You have a chance to leave the past behind you. Do it consciously and with awareness of who you are today and the future you wish to create. Remember your lessons and you can make wise choices.

With Cancer being the missing sign on the Grand Cross — a little sensitivity will go a long way. You can’t force another to change, but it takes two to tango. Change yourself and you will automatically change the dynamic in a situation or relationship.

We cannot control the world, or anything external. We can barely control ourselves. And really this is not about controlling, but achieving a state of emotional balance — as suggested by the Moon in Libra. We are meant to experience all emotions, joy, happiness, sadness and even pain — they are all a part of the human experience. In allowing ourselves to feel and release our emotions consciously, we can return to a state of equilibrium.

We’re reaching the culmination of the cycle that began with the Pisces New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse. Pisces is the sign of “spirituality,”  People are trying so hard to be spiritual they’ve forgotten how to be human.

There is an easier, sweeter, more peaceful way forward. At best we are interdependent creatures and our relationships are a mirror. This Eclipse is not only revealing to you how you feel about your relationships, your relationships too are reflecting an important truth to you about yourself.

Find your humanity then you can be liberated to experience your divinity.

In the beginning…: Pisces New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse at 29+ degrees


Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service


Dear Friends,

We’re days past the recent Pisces Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon that occurred at 29+ Pisces on Mar. 20, 2015.

11044597_10152599158080706_755534299139446194_nAs the Sun’s disk is wiped clean, so too life is offering us a clean slate. Especially in the area of your life ruled by Pisces — all is possible, if you’re willing to work for it.

Currently the Moon is in Gemini forming a sextile to the Aries Sun, as the Sun trines Saturn in Sagittarius tomorrow. In spite of your worst fears or all that you could still use clarity on, a situation is stabilizing.

But with the Sun in Aries now, along with Mars, Uranus and the South Node, you can expect life to pick up pace over the next two weeks as we move to the Libra Lunar Eclipse on April 4, 2015, bringing us to the culmination of this cycle — which will surely come with a few surprise revelations.

I’ll be back with more astrology soon. In the meanwhile, I’ve interpreted in detail the both the Eclipses and the aspects over the next two weeks in a report sent out to subscribers. Below is an excerpt covering the energy of the Pisces Solar Eclipse, seeding this cycle. (You can sign up here for a one week free trial (limited to one per person) to receive the report in your email.)

Pisces New Moon and Solar Eclipse report

An Excerpt ==

“The last degree of a sign, known as the ‘anaretic’ degree, is a potent energetic point that carries within it the cumulative energy of the entire sign. The last degree of Pisces also marks the last degree of the zodiac and the end of the cosmic cycle — the point of dissolution into the void. After which comes the first degree of Aries, or the Aries Point, marking the beginning of the zodiac cycle and birth of all creation.

“A New Moon alone, at this degree [29+ Pisces] would be significant, but coinciding with a Total Solar Eclipse, the Equinox and a ‘Super Moon,’ you can expect the potency of this cycle to multiply. this Eclipse also marks the first in the series of upcoming Virgo — Pisces Eclipses, offering a deep glimpse into an emerging story over the coming 18 months.

“We’re also recently past the final Uranus-Pluto square on March 17, 2015 bringing us to a culmination of a process that’s been unfolding since 2012 — blasting open boundaries, tearing down crumbling structures and bringing important wake-up calls asking for transformation.

“Right now, there might be a sense of standing in the midst of the rubble, being challenged and liberated to dream again. The Sabian Symbol for this degree also brings us deep insight into the infinite potential in the energy and this cycle:

Wheel of Fortune…: Mars and the final Uranus-Pluto square

Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service

Personal Astrology Consultations

Dear Friends,

So here we are — at the final Uranus- Pluto square and in Eclipse season, moving through an intensely transformative patch of astrology — blasting us into a new reality.

10391415_10152591966030706_140869514785123271_nAs I write this, Mars in Aries is forming an exact trine to Jupiter in Leo, and over the next 48 hours conjuncts Uranus in Aries on Mar. 11, 2015 and squares Pluto in Capricorn on Mar. 12, 2015.

There are unexpected, dramatic, perhaps shocking developments unfolding over the coming days, taking us on quite the ride – so buckle up.

This is volatile, fiery energy and with the Moon in Scorpio, one of Mars’ ruling signs, at the time of Mars’ aspects, emotions are running high, triggering passions, desires, rage and determination. Fools rush in…

Awareness will be key if you want to avoid drama or reacting explosively in haste. Also, avoid selfish motives, over confidence or hanging on to expectations, which will likely backfire. Move with a degree of caution or there is the danger you could go too far and have a rude awakening.

Jupiter’s presence in the configuration offers a degree of protection, but it also asks for wisdom and faith. Whatever triggers your fears – avoid your fight or flight response and you can awaken to your power in a situation to turn something around. And faith doesn’t mean blind optimism but, rather, the courage to reach for what you want without attachment to an outcome.

But this is it – we’re finally here.

Mars’ aspects are lighting the fuse, triggering and setting in motion a greater chain of events bringing us to seventh and final the Uranus – Pluto square on Mar. 17, 2015, marking the culmination of a series of aspects that has dominated the sky since 2012, changing the landscape of our lives.

Since the first aspect aligned in 2012, personally and globally — we’ve been in a phase of deep transition, awakening to a greater reality. This has been a wake-up call in no uncertain terms and none of it has been easy. Rather, you could say things are a bloody mess. But awareness however painful is always the first step towards empowerment and transformation.

We’ve been turning a corner collectively and personally, it’s like we’re getting out of the turnstile to the other side. And the coming days offer the opportunity to confront your fears and put a struggle behind you.

This doesn’t mean it’s all going to be smooth sailing from here. When you’re in an accident or crisis — the adrenaline numbs you. It’s only after the shock has worn off do you feel the pain. After the tremendous upheaval of the past few years– it will take a while for the aftershocks to settle.

But we’re entering a period of rebuilding. Which means digging through and clearing up the rubble, so we can build again on stronger foundations or heal what needs to be healed.

All this leads up to the Pisces New Moon and Solar Eclipse on Mar. 20, 2015 which is wiping the slate clean; asking us to let go of illusions, recognize the infinite potential and dare to dream a new dream.

At the time of Eclipses, life tends to accelerate, bringing the sense of fated events. And there are other major shifts and aspects unfolding as we move to the Pisces Solar Eclipse, including Saturn’s retrograde station on Mar. 14, 2016 for the first time since its ingress into Sagittarius. Also, a day after the Uranus-Pluto square, Venus enters Taurus. A very promising sign from the Universe that we’re entering a more fertile reality – offering the potential for greater stability financially and in our relationships.

I’ve interpreted these and other aspects, (listed below) covering the life-changing patch of astrology as we move to the Pisces Solar Eclipse in greater detail in the Virgo Full Moon report. You can sign up here for a one-week free trial (limited to one per person) to receive the report in your email, as well as your full-length March Horoscopes. (I’ll upload sample horoscopes shortly so please check back in.)

For now, as you move through the next few days, be wise, brave, spontaneous and fluid. We’re in a pivotal moment and month. Don’t underestimate your power to be the force of change you seek. Dare to follow your passion, go for gold, but let go of expectations and you could make a huge personal breakthrough.

Something that seems like a small or personal victory has much larger implications that perhaps you’ll likely only see in hindsight.




I am available for Astrology & Tarot Consultations via Skype. I have a few openings left for March so please email me at the earliest if you would like to schedule a session this month. And I look forward to working with you…

Happy Holi and Virgo Full Moon!


Below is an excerpt from the Virgo Full Moon report, covering the energy over the next two weeks as we move to the Pisces Total Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 11.41.45 pmSolar Eclipse and New Moon. This report is part of the Cosmic Diaries subscriber service. You can sign up here for a one week free trial.

Virgo Full Moon, March 5, 2015 – 11:35 PM EST

An Excerpt ==

“For now, as this Full Moon aligns with the Sun in Pisces we’re becoming aware of the deeper possibilities in a situation. Clarify a vision, rather than try to pin something down.

“In Virgo, the Full Moon suggests you need a plan. But a lot is changing over the coming weeks and there are major revelations surfacing. Be fluid, flexible, spontaneous, bold and imaginative.
“Also, this is deeply healing energy; and you can heal, fix or resolve anything that is broken or not working. Even if all you can see right now is what is wrong with a situation, focus on solutions and you will find them. In relationships too there can be deep healing, if you let that be the focus.

“In India this Full Moon aligns with Holi Pornima (Full Moon), which marks the festival of Holi in India; marking the end of winter and beginning of spring. Incidentally, on Holi day people forgive the past and each other, for past hurts, allowing bygones to be bygones as we enter a new Solar year. This plays deeply with the themes of Virgo-Pisces asking for forgiveness so there can be healing, before we renew and re-birth with the Pisces New Moon and Solar Eclipse.

“Allow the energy of this lunation to wash over you. Don’t underestimate the power of what unfolds now and over the coming weeks. We’re moving through Eclipse season, Saturn stations retrograde and Uranus and Pluto  square for the last time, entering a whole new world of possibilities limited only by our imagination. With Pisces-Virgo, anything is possible, if you’re willing to work for it.

“Have a plan, but leave room for magic. And magic is all around you right now, in all things great and small…” –Priya Kale, Virgo Full Moon report. Read Full Report.

In the beginning…: Venus conjuncts Mars in Aries

Welcome to the Chinese New Year!

…and the second Aquarius New Moon of the year – a rather unusual one – straddling the cusp of Pisces at 29’ 59” degrees Aquarius.

10610626_10152580532645706_2376399833033416905_nWe’re entering a passionate cycle, buzzing with possibilities, all building up to dramatic and magical crescendo as the Virgo Full Moon peaks on Mar. 6, 2014 bringing a culmination to events beginning with this cycle.

Currently — Mercury is moving through its final shadow phase and will clear shadow on Mar. 4, 2016 (among other aspects) just before the Full Moon on March 6, 2015.

Communication that has gone haywire, should hopefully start to get easier, offering the chance to clear the air, misunderstandings and reach a deeper understanding of the options available.

But perhaps most significantly, over the past day and a half, Mars and Venus have both left Pisces to enter Aries bringing to the surface fiery undeniable passions and attractions. And you can expect fireworks this weekend.

Venus and Mars meet in conjunction less than 24 hours from now on Feb. 22, 2015 at 01+ Aries. (If you head out tonight, under clear skies, you should see the two of them hanging out by the crescent Moon also in Aries.)

Anytime Venus and Mars get together relationships start to heat up, as do creative and financial situations. Something that’s been brewing a while, is reaching a climax. Mars is the seed of life, Venus ‘the womb,’ and in Aries, this conjunction is seeding, powerful new beginnings.

Venus and Mars have just moved from Pisces to Aries. Pisces is the 12th sign that represents the cosmic void, what’s unseen, behind the veil, all that is. Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac – born out of Pisces, where the un-manifest becomes manifest and comes alive.

This energy is playful, curious and fearless. This is the fire of creation. But like a child playing with fire, this can be dangerous and destructive if handled unconsciously. This means having self-awareness of your desires, fears, past pain, resentments, anger and triggers; as well as any tendency to be selfish or self-centered which will never take you far.

A situation where you feel the heat holds fertile, lucrative potential. But proceed slowly, with caution. Then you needn’t fear getting ahead of yourself, burned or acting in the heat of the moment and later regretting it.

It will require more than passion to sustain something, but don’t doubt there’s something birthing in the part of your chart represented by Aries. And don’t underestimate the power of this energy allowing you to create something beautiful out of seemingly nothing.

On a personal note, this Mercury retrograde took place in my 10th Solar House and I’ve been working through every unforseen technical issue imaginable starting from a crashed hard-disk to a crashed mailing list, mounting deadlines, backlogged email and current projects, while I simply try to keep up with back-end stuff and life. This has also eaten away from my Blog writing, something I enjoy as a daily meditation and my way of giving back.

I finally managed to escape  to the beach, get some much needed space to clear my head and catch up. I’m slowly but surely starting to make headway (the sea is a great healer) but I’m working with limited Internet access, so if you’ve emailed me recently and are waiting to hear back from me for over a week, please feel free to re-send your email.

Also, I’m offering a discounted rate of $500 (usual $550) on a special Venus-Mars package of four Consultations, until the Full Moon March 6, 2015.


Venus-Mars Consultation package – 4 x 60 min Astrology Consultations – $500 (purchase by Mar. 6, 2

These can be used as regular Consultations over a period of 4 months. Or as an opportunity to dive into the three Venus-Mars conjunctions this year, look at what they activate in your chart, the story being played out and how you can get the most out of the potential the conjunctions offer — in your relationships, financial situations and creative projects — especially those beginning now.

All Consultations booked now will be scheduled starting the second week of March, so please book early if you want to be guaranteed an early appointment. 

I’ll be back with more astrology soon, probably around the Full Moon. But I’ve interpreted the conjunction and other aspects in detail in the Aquarius New Moon report, sent out to the Cosmic Diaries subscribers, covering the astrology over the next two weeks leading up to the Virgo Full Moon. Below is an excerpt.

Wishing you a fun and passionate weekend!

With Love from Goa,

An Excerpt ==

“There are powerful aspects unfolding over the next two weeks as we move to the Virgo Full Moon two weeks from now.

“Life could leave you more than a little breathless; this is not for the faint-hearted, and you’d be wise to buckle your seat-belt over the next few weeks. But don’t underestimate the sheer fiery, creative, fertile potential of this energy to kick-start whatever initiate.

“The Sun and Moon enter Pisces immediately following the New Moon. Then on Feb. 20, 2015 Mars enters his home sign Aries followed immediately by Venus, hot on his trail within 24 hours; and Venus and Mars meet in conjunction on Feb. 22, 2015 igniting deep passionate desires.

“There’s romance, fun, excitement, creative, lucrative financial potential, sexual passion and (dare I say) love, in the air. But this could even trigger fears surrounding abandonment, betrayal, being burned or perhaps anger or pain from the past.

“In Aries, this is a phase of initiation and this is pure, raw, primal energy. You’re playing with fire here, so proceed with awareness. And be conscious so you aren’t projecting either fear or desire.

“In an existing relationship, this is a chance to discover someone all over again. If you meet someone new, acknowledge your desires, and then you won’t confuse love with lust…” — Priya Kale, Aquarius New Moon report. Read Full Report.

Now I’ve always been the kind of person that doesn’t like to trespass
but sometimes you just find yourself over the line
Oh if there’s an original thought out there, I could use it right now

— Bob Dylan, Brownsville Girl.

A warm welcome to all the new readers to this page, especially those who found me through my colleague Nadiya Shah’s video. I hope you enjoy the website and work; and I hope you stick around!


Dear Friends,

Apologies for being away from the Blog for a bit. Between the holidays, settling into  a new routine, Consultations and retrieving a crashed hard disk, right before Mercury stationed retrograde, I’ve had my hands full.

But I just wanted to check in with the Blog, given all the activity in the sky. Currently the Sun, Venus and Mercury (now retrograde) are transiting through Aquarius.

"total eclipse of the heart."Mercury first entered shadow just after the Cancer Full Moon on Jan 5, 2015 and as Mercury retraces its steps through Aquarius, we’re in a phase of reviewing and recovering the territory we’ve been in since then. Mercury stations direct on Feb. 11, 2015 and makes a third pass over the same degrees of the zodiac and finally moves out of shadow into new territory on Mar. 4, 2015.

And this brings us March 17, 2015 which marks the grand-finale and final aspect of the ongoing squares between Uranus and Pluto since 2012, which have changed the landscape of the world and all our lives.

The most recent square between these two planets occurred on Dec. 16, 2014, just a few days before Saturn entered Sagittarius. In the last days of Saturn in Scorpio, I recorded a video on Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius.

At the time, I remember the words ”religious fundamentalism” coming through very strongly, which I mentioned in the video. Since then as Saturn entered Sagittarius, we’ve seen events unfold around the world, not least in Paris and Pakistan. Sagittarius being the sign of publishing, once again the astrological symbolism is stark and evident.

It may be easy to lose hope in the face of the violence all around us. But as meaningless as it is and seems, it need not be in vain, if it inspires us to be the force for change; to be more compassionate and kinder human beings. Whether we see it or not, there is always a higher divine plan in motion – and you never know what could set off a chain reaction. You have no control over the outcome of things – but you do control what you put out into the world. Use this power wisely.

Especially, with Mercury’s retrograde phase leading up to this final Uranus-Pluto square: let go of perceptions, then you can can see different facets to a situation or person that you haven’t previously seen, bringing you a recognition of the oneness of life.

Also, Venus is now in the final degree and final hours of her transit through Aquarius. Venus enters Pisces (the sign of her exaltation) at 2:57 PM GMT on Jan. 27, 2015 until Feb. 21, 2014, to join Mars in the sign. And then immediately after her ingress into Aries, she makes a spicy conjunction to Mars on Feb. 22, 2015.

Anytime Venus and Mars come together in the sky, we see relationships, creative and financial situations heat up, especially with this conjunction being in Aries – the first Fire sign. Although this is a fast moving transit we have three Venus-Mars conjunctions this year, which speak of a longer story unfolding. No matter what has gone down before, this conjunction in Aries suggests this is just the beginning.

But that’s later — and what happens then depends on how you’re able to flow with life now. With Mars and Venus moving through Pisces over the next few weeks: before you jump into the fire, dip your feet, warm your toes, see how something feels before you dive in.

Pisces represents all that is un-manifest; the great void, from which all of creation is born. All things are possible, but seek depth then you won’t get swept away in a fantasy or illusion and then have a rude awakening.

Financially too, now would be a great time to plug any leaks before you try to fill up the bucket, or you could find yourself under the gun later. If you work well under pressure that’s fine – but if you do what you need to now – you could free yourself up to have some fun by the time of the conjunction.

As I write this the Moon is in Taurus now, just about to square the Sun, bringing us to the Quarter Moon. Marking the half-way point of the cycle that began with the New Moon leading to the Leo Full Moon just over a week from now on Feb. 4, 2015.

Usually we have one New and one Full Moon per sign. This year we have two – the first and recent New Moon Aquarius at 0’ 9” degrees and the second one at 29’ 59” degrees of the sign. To me this speaks of a longer story unfolding, offering second chances and new starts, if we’re willing to learn from and be comfortable with all that’s up in the air.

Of course there’s a whole lot more going on in between now and then, not least a very passionate Leo Full Moon on Feb. 4, 2015 — which also triggers the degree of the Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo later this year. And dare I say it love is in the air, or water. But still go slow and you won’t slip up.

I’ve written more about Mercury’s retrograde, Venus in Pisces and other current transits in detail in the Moon reports. Time-permitting, I will check back in here around the time of the Full Moon with more astrology. But for now my focus is on the back-end: with writing Horoscopes and Moon reports for the Cosmic Diaries Subscriber service, uploading the second part of the 2015 and beyond Horoscopes and Consultations.

But if you want to stay up to date with the on-goings in the sky, and you aren’t yet a subscriber, you can sign up here for a one week free trial to the Cosmic Diaries subscriber service to receive recent and upcoming reports in your email.

Aquarius New Moon (0+ degrees) report

An Excerpt  ==

“You can breathe a dream to life. But it will also require discipline and an ability to stay the track, re-evaluate what is or isn’t working and make adjustments accordingly moving forward. The key is to learn from the past, not stay stuck in it.

“Allow things to stand on their head, clear space so there’s room for inspiration to strike. The more you let go of the need for validation, you can find the freedom you need to be uniquely you and express your art, heart and be a source of inspiration.

“A significant shift comes as Venus enters Pisces, the sign of her exaltation, on Jan. 27, 2015. This is very creative energy, as well as very romantic energy.

“But really Venus in Pisces teaches us lessons about unconditional love, rather than “love” as defined by the laws of this material world or the movies. 

“This is the real deal. The kind of love, that cannot be possessed or contained, only felt, beyond the flesh, deep in your heart and soul.

“There could be sweet re-connections and dramatic revelations as you move to the Leo Full Moon. Share the love you feel, rather than hold on to expectation of how something will be received, or whether your love will be reciprocated…” — Priya Kale. Read Full Aquarius New Moon 2015 report.
