For the time being, my email link isn’t working. Judging from the auto message from wordpress, that could be the case for the rest of September. And that’s ok with me because i can happily report that, since my last post, people have just started using the comment box – love that Virgo ingenuity!
If you need to get in
touch, please send me a comment with your email address included and I’ll get
back to you. (I will not approve the comment and its contents will remain
confidential.) Alternately, you can use
the email address email@example.com
which I have now resurrected.
Although it can be somewhat frenetic, a lot gets sorted as autumn sets in. This year, the additional weight of Saturn stationing can feel like an increase in atmospheric pressure. The average human being is juggling too much already so keep this in mind the next time you want to rant or simply dissolve. The structures and spaces you are wanting to establish are ironically mired in the ‘too much’ – so trust in the process. The pace for the to-do list is going to be a plod. When you are plodding, you aren’t as likely to miss anything.
I am pleased to report some great news for residents and visitors to Cyprus. Based in Paphos, the Indian Classical Music and Arts in Cyprus Foundation has been officially established thanks to the passion work of Kyp Paraskeva and fellow aficionados. A life long seeker and a student of the sitar for many years, with this next evolution Kyp provides the perfect space for us to share in the mysteries, wonders and wisdom of Hindustani classical music.
In June, we were in awe of Bala Devi Chandrashekar as she presented a lecture and performance sponsored in part by the Paphos Municipality .
In September, the renowned Indian classical vocalist, Mahesh Kale, founder of ICMA and based in San Francisco, was able to come and bless the new Cyprus branch of his non-profit in person! He opened his concert in historic Ibrahim’s Khan by sharing how delighted and impressed he is with the talent and dedication of Kyp, his wife, Mare and the rest of the founding team. (and all the people say Amen!) It was a magical evening – and even more so for your astrologer who finally got to meet another astrologer in person. 😉 See his live performance in Paphos on youtube. We are all looking forward to Mahesh’s return, possibly as early as next year.
The ICMACY provides the essential raagas for festivals, concerts, and events all around Cyprus with recent collaborations including the High Commission of India (link) in Nicosia and Sanskriti Cyprus (link) in Limassol. Many of the ICMACY offerings are free to the public. You can find and follow them on facebook.
Congratulations and much appreciation to the team at ICMACY!

The full moon at 20’ Aries lights up something seriously in
need of ending in its current form. It’s likely that this comes to the fore in a
partnership. Those of us with placements near 20’ of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
won’t be too surprised as this energy culminates; there are hints for the
attentive for at least a week before. Do yourself a favor: Let go.
Those with placements in Aries, however, might feel somewhat
stunned by what comes to light. When you are experiencing a creeping stresser
for so long – as newer situations come and go that divert your attention and
energy, its instinctual to tune out the drum beat of impending finality.
The ruler of the full moon, Mars, has been vibing via the house of Libra for about the same amount of time that Mercury, followed by Venus, has been vibing via the house of Scorpio. If we’ve been unusually willing to go below the surface in our discussions and debates with others, if we’ve been unusually willing to dispense with our typical style of interaction and drawing in near to another, the days leading up to the full moon might read: so this is how it goes in the big leagues of WE-labors: aha! moment *Or* Me, thinking WE had this balancing act down pat but you clearly do NOT.
Either way you see it, don’t lose your chance to step up and do a little fire walking…
For all of us, there’s a fire trine from Jupiter to that Aries moon. You can get new spark plugs in your zone of faith, adventurousness and humor. If Aries is your sun or rising sign, shazam! Got planets in Leo? You can crank up the wattage, too. (And if you haven’t got Leo markers, go for it anyway!) Recent checks on your creativity serve as guard rails; Jupiter can inspire and project, Aries is the courageous and Leo can perform with winning style even on a shrinking stage. You never know who may be watching.
The rest of this year is not all fun and games; you’ll need to exercise your serious sides. If you blow your top, be willing to pay the consequences dictated by your place. Be willing to show up. Remember your training:
‘The sparks from your forge work should not catch your neighbor’s house on fire. In fact, the single most important feature of this span of time seems to me to be about how well you can contain your experience when appropriate.’ Battle Plan Heroes in Training
What if we make a decision that, right here and now, (this) is my perception of What Is and based upon that perception, I draw a symbolic line on the ground. What needs to be repaired, what’s ready to go, what’s too heavy to carry by myself, what’s essential to success? And I lead. I lead me, my head space and my being in stepping over that line…One thing is certain: we aren’t supposed to feel like we are in this alone, except in rare cases. The value of connected outcomes, regardless of market place niche or life role played, is made plain. Capricorn Base Camp
