Venus is the final planet to travel through Cancer this year and like a mother arriving to sweeping up the fragments of a broken toy/game/heart, she’s here to offer tender consolation and heart-felt empathy to those sensitive parts that have been through the wringer over the past few years. Finally away from her drawn-out sojourn...

Wishing you all a Happy Solstice for last Saturday! For those in the Southern Hemisphere, have you felt the energy rising again every so slightly?

Everywhere I look right now I see doorways and corridors. In literature, in film, even on Netflix. So I looked up the symbolism (thanks Google!) and discovered a new word – liminal.
