Irish clients bring me extra challenge!  Not always, of course—and the charm, warmth and spiritual sincerity more than compensates.

Your birth time doesn’t exist in Read More…

For Summer Solstice . . . Yoga or Bhoga?

A few days ago, I received an email from Easy Jet announcing they were back in the air. Good news, from so many points of view. Yet the declaration hit me wrong, triggering a wave of sadness that stayed with me for hours. “Where will you fly to first? the headline enticed, implying a line Read More…

Love, in the broadest understanding of the word, means a resonance that joins. In its ultimate expression, love binds the cosmos into One. Its essence is harmony, the Read More…

Mercury Into the Rabbit Hole

“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing,” my Jyotish mentor warned me. Just like in the parable of the blind man and the elephant, you can’t know the whole from touching only a tiny part. When I first discovered Vedic Astrology, I knew I’d found a subject to challenge me for the rest of my Read More…
