The Imbalance of Elements in your Natal Chart, pt. 2

Hello again! Want to catch up on part one? Now, onto part two. An overabundance of Fire can go two ways: passion before reason, acting without thinking, and unearned confidence with no direction; or all of that passion, action, and confidence directed towards a clear goal. You can use this to bring out whatever you…

The Imbalance of Elements in your Natal Chart, pt. 1

Just like nobody is truly crazy, but some are crazier than others, nobody’s natal chart is evenly balanced; but some are more unbalanced than others. When there is a noticeable lack of one element and an overabundance of another, it comes across in who we are and how the world responds to us. Take me…

Your North Node Points You in the Right Direction, Your South Node Makes it Difficult to Follow

Out of everything in your natal chart, and there’s a lot, your North Node is the sign with an arrow saying ‘Go this way. For the love of god, go this way.’ Your South Node is the bad habits you fall back on. We all know this, we’ve all experienced this. I consider bad habits to…

Working Past a Debilitated Mars

Mars is the planet that lights a fire under our ass, figuratively speaking. The ruler of Aries and traditional ruler of Scorpio, it’s the planet that gives us our drive and our ambition. Which is why its exalted in Capricorn. Mars does well in a sign that is steady, thoughtful, and logical. This doesn’t do any…

My Moon Makes Me Feel Like a Fraud, How About You?

The moon is our emotional nature. It’s what makes us tick and how reactive (or not) we are. Obviously, short of being a sociopath, its impossible to go through life without feeling emotion. And obviously, again, writing is highly emotional. Not only in the sense that we impart emotions onto our characters, but also our…

Venus is Less Superficial than You Would Think

Venus is a benefic planet that rules over the two most sought-after things in life – love, and money. If you want to get technical, money and love since the second house is our possessions and what we value, while the seventh house is our relationships. Romantic ones, not platonic ones. Friendship is the eleventh…

Saturn isn’t as Bad as We Think

Saturn, my sun’s ruling planet, is the dourest out of all the planets. Karma, restriction, lessons, these are words the commonly crop up when discussing Saturn. It’s the cautious part of you, the part that doesn’t take anything at face value.  And, because Saturn is time, it’s the planet that makes you wait. Because of course,…

Look What Uranus Made Me Do

Uranus, named after the Greek God of the sky Ouranus (which means, yes, people have been making your anus jokes longer than they were ever funny), is one of the more confusing planets in a natal chart. To me, at least. Even just looking at the bare facts of the planet doesn’t make any sense. Uranus…

My Love/Hate Relationship with Neptune

Because it’s not just Jupiter that fucks my shit up. To give you some context, Pisces, which is ruled by Neptune, was originally ruled by Jupiter. And, in some ways, Neptune and Jupiter are one in the same. While Jupiter makes you so focused on the big picture you miss the details, Neptune gives you…

Your Sun is More Than a Generalization

Sun Sign (or Star Sign) is the one part of astrology that even a person with almost no interest in it – beyond what’s in the paper – can tell you when asked. It’s almost common knowledge at this point. Scorpio is mysterious, Virgo is Type A, Leo is the dramatic one, and Aquarius is the…
