The poet, the lover and the Rowan tree

The poet Katherine Raine fell in love with author Gavin Maxwell. Theirs was a stormy relationship, not helped by the fact that Maxwell was gay. Maxwell became famous after he travelled to Iraq with Wilfred Thesiger to explore the marshes (subsequently drained by Saddam Hussein). He wanted to bring an otter home with him. Thesiger found one, who Maxwell named Mijbil and he wrote about his experiences in the best selling book and film Ring of Bright Water, which is a line from one of Kathleen’s poems.
He has married me with a ring, a ring of bright water
Whose ripples spread from the heart of the sea,
He has married me with a ring of light, the glitter
Broadcast on the swift river.  
Their relationship ended with her curse by a Rowan tree. This blog looks at their synastry and major transits at this fateful time.

Fashion to die for-the astrology of the house of Gucci

Last Sunday we moved into Sagittarius season, whew- it has been a heavy couple of months with lots more Scorpio energies than usual…now we are ready for some fun. But wait, are all Sagittarians fun loving? Perhaps they are, until it looks like the fun it about to run out, then they can get nasty. Remember Sagittarius is the sign of the archer, she has a bow and arrow and is not afraid to use it. Watch out if you try to cramp her style, she just might shoot you.
