While a butterfly is in its larval stage, it is known as a caterpillar. The primary activity of a caterpillar is eating. Along the way it grows larger in size and essentially does something akin to shedding skin or molting to accommodate its growth. When it is ready to enter the chrysalis (what many people [...]

In the tenth house, I talked about the example of a career as a doctor. That doctor was concerned with his work and his contribution to his patients, what he defines as his community. He offers his community support by contributing his efforts and expertise to those that seek his help. In the eleventh house, [...]

To “follow your bliss” is essentially about the pursuit of happiness, something the astrological Moon knows all about. During a tenthhouse progression, you are asked to consider what it is that you feel you were born for, what you were meant to do, what you might say is your calling. Steven Forrest calls this your [...]

While most of us may not be inclined to put “Philosopher” and “Great Thinker” on our resumes like Socrates, Nietzsche, or Sartre could, we all have a basic philosophy of life, a framework of beliefs that we operate within as we live our lives and make choices every day. The ninth house has been called [...]

While picking flowers one day, Persephone was kidnapped by Hades (the god of the Underworld) to be his wife.

Many of the astrological houses deal with some form of relating, but a seventh-house progression is specifically geared to help us understand the balance between our partner and ourselves.

Days become months. Months become years. Years add up to an entire life, at the end of which you probably hope to be able to look back with pride, satisfaction, and gratitude. What you do every day leads to and creates the rest of your life. During a sixth-house progression, you may find yourself busier [...]

Having fun is, well, fun. Obviously it’s very enjoyable to be able to spend our time doing something that we like to do, and during this progression you are certainly encouraged to simply have more fun. With so much emphasis on work and productivity, pleasure is a gift that we don’t take advantage of as [...]

The purpose behind any home or family issues that arise will be extensions of one idea: a need to explore what lies within. This exploration will usually take us back to the beginning, back “home” in some way, figuratively and often literally. Like the foundation that supports a home, your foundation, where you come from, [...]

There is an old and well-known story in which a number of blindfolded men gather around an object and feel it with their hands. When asked to describe what they think the object is, they don’t know that they are each only feeling part of the object, so naturally they all come up with different [...]

In astrology, the second house is often thought of narrowly as relating to money: whether or not you have any and how you should go about getting it or spending it. This is certainly not entirely wrong and it’s one way that life will get your attention during this progression, but money is only one [...]

The purpose of the first-house progression is to test those new wings. You are crafting a new self and learning how to use that self in new situations. It’s quite likely that you are not sure where you’re going yet, but even if you do have a sense of your new direction, that doesn’t mean [...]
