New lunar cycle



We are in a new lunar cycle (The New Moon was yesterday on Jan 20th in Aquarius). The New Moon is about bravely stepping into the unknown to begin something new. The Moon is dark and the night is dark, with no light illuminating the way ahead. Correspondingly, we cannot see exactly how the new terrain in the journey, with its challenges, endeavors and developments, will unfold. We don’t have all the information yet, and we don’t know precisely what will happen. And that is as it should be – we just have to be ok with it! All we know now is that we must take the first step to begin the process. Over the next couple of weeks things will develop (possibly with some delays due to Mercury retrograde), and on the Full Moon on February 3rd, more will be clear. It never fails. The light of the Full Moon always brings some bit of new clarity or information which was not there before.

A New Moon on 9/24



Tonight we are in the darkest, deepest, most inward part of the Moon cycle. It is a time of being with oneself, surrendering, and accepting things as they are. Tomorrow is the New Moon, starting a fresh monthly cycle when a new adventure will begin in relationship-oriented Libra (Wherever Libra falls in your birth chart will show in what arena the new beginning is taking place). But tonight we are still in the dark and in the unknown. Things may be vague or unclear, and the Moon was void all day as well, making it an especially ideal time for being with what is and giving time and space for internal explorations.

Astrological Relationship Analysis and Compatibility



“A mystic will seek to penetrate the veils through constant and arduous meditation practice, whilst the lover, through his feelings for the beloved, will arrive there in his heart. In this sense, human relationship is spiritual practice, with benefits of equal value.” ~Robert P. Blaschke


Astrological relationship analysis is one of my favorite areas of study. While astrological knowledge certainly can’t give any guarantees about whether a relationship will be “successful” or not, it can provide insights into the everyday dynamics of a relationship as well as give some clues about the underlying spiritual journey two people have together. Below is a compilation of gems I have gleaned from my studies as well as observations taken from client experiences and personal experience.


The three main ways I investigate relationships:
