I’m sad to say that after a wonderful seven-year stint, my astrology talkback segment on radio 3RRR is no longer. The program presenter of Wax Lyrical has decided to wind up my segment to focus on other issues and guests.Read more


Check the Power Moon Days column to find out when the Moon will be passing through your star sign this month.  You should feel particularly 'in tune' on these days and activities will proceed smoothly for you.

And if you know which sign the Moon was in when you were born, note the 2-3 days each month when the Moon will be in that sign. This is your 'lunar return' and the natural energies of this period will resonate with your own personal energy.  For example, if you were born with the Moon in Libra, you should experience feelings of harmony, balance and creativity when the transiting Moon is in Libra.

Serious moon watchers might like to purchase a Moon Calendar from the Stella Starwoman Store.  These calendars list the exact time of day when the moon moves from one zodiac sign to the next and help you organise your life using moon cycles and lunar planning to achieve optimum emotional and physical balance.

Jupiter retrograde in Leo (early December to early April) will bring you face to face with your ego and force you to look at how you treat others, your motives and behaviour and whether you use our charm and charisma to forward your own interests or to lift and encourage others. (Ideally a bit of both!) This retrograde period of Jupiter will also allow you to deal with the consequences of any excessive or careless behaviour in recent months.  Seeds planted in the latter half of 2014 will begin to germinate and projects can be revised and perfected. The first half of 2015 is generally favourable with Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus all in fire signs providing a boost of energy and self confidence. January is particularly lucky for all matters relating to your career, networking and social engagements.


1st-2nd &

Lucky Jupiter continues his year-long journey through your home and domestic sector making the first half of 2015 an excellent time to buy or renovate property or spend quality time with close family members. Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Sun will all be lighting up your career sector this month giving you the energy and motivation to make changes in the workplace and improve your job prospects.  The full moon on the 5th January is very powerful being aligned with Pluto, Uranus and the moon’s nodal axis.  Some uncomfortable truths may come to the surface at this time, so keep your cool, apologise if you need to but don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in.


2nd-4th &

Action planet Mars has been in fellow air sign Aquarius since early December and will be there until mid- January, lighting up the part of your life related to study, travel, growth and spirituality, so any of these areas could take on increased importance during this period.  Your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 22nd January and will travel backwards also through Aquarius for the next three weeks (to 12th Feb). Rather than looking to the future, as is usual at this time of year, now is the time to evaluate the past, and in particular how many of your dreams and plans have been realised over the past 12 months.  Accurate predictions regarding the likely outcome of any event can be made by looking at how the situation developed in the first place.


4th-6th &

Finances continue to be an important area this month with Mars, Jupiter and the new moon lighting up your money and investment sectors. The first half of January in particular is a good time to take an in-depth look at your financial position and make any necessary changes or adjustments. There’s a beautiful full moon in Cancer on the 5th January, but it packs a powerful punch.  The sun is conjunct transformational Pluto and both sun and moon are square to Uranus and the nodal axis.  In layman’s terms this means a day of facing the truth and releasing past karma. Some of the revelations may be uncomfortable, but if you have the courage to stand tall and be real, you'll feel a great sense of relief and release as you leave the past behind.
Leo 6th-9th As you probably know, lucky Jupiter has been gracing Leo since July last year, expanding your horizons and presenting new opportunities for growth and change.  However in early December, Jupiter turned retrograde and began a four month backward journey through Leo. This retrograde transit will bring you face to face with your ego and force you to examine how you treat others, your motives and behaviour.  Do you use your charm and charisma to forward your own interests or is your aim to lift and encourage others?  Meanwhile, passionate and dynamic Mars continues his six week journey through your relationship sector until 12th January. The question is, is Mars bringing fireworks or arguments? If your life is relatively balanced, Mars could well bring a new relationship into your life during this period (early December – 12th January) or inject passion into existing relationships, both business and personal. On the other hand, if you’re experiencing Mars via ‘projection’, you could find things exploding all around you. Mars teaches us to express our needs and desires in a healthy and open manner and this is what you’re learning at the moment.


Ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 22nd January and will travel backwards through Aquarius for the next three weeks (to 12th Feb). Rather than looking to the future, as is usual at this time of year, now is the time to evaluate the past and work out exactly why you’re in the situation you’re in and whether you want to stay there.  Being the kind of person who values order and detail you may also decide to give your home, office, garage and garden a makeover and get rid of any stuff you no longer need. This would be a wise decision as lucky planet Jupiter will be shifting into Virgo mid year showering you with good fortune and new opportunities.  If you get everything sorted out now, you’ll be in a great position to take advantage of all the new opportunities coming your way.



The Cancer full moon on the 5th January lights ups your career sector prompting you to make new year resolutions about work-life balance. Learn to say no to people who are draining you. Lucky Jupiter continues to provide ample opportunities to socialise and network with friends and colleagues right through to July – if you want something, in this first half of 2015, just put up your hand and ask. Action planet Mars moved into fellow air sign Aquarius in early December perking up your love life and boosting your creativity. Mars will be in Aquarius until the 12th January - this is a time when following that inner impulse is exactly the right thing to do, even if others think you are crazy or unconventional.  This is also a good time to sort out any problems you may be having with your children.



With action planet Mars installed in your domestic sector, joined by Venus, Mercury, the Suna and a new moon,  as the month unfolds, it’s time to concentrate on all things familial.  This includes visiting family members; inviting people to your home; dealing with any problems in your family, especially with your parents, or on a brighter note, renovating or sprucing up your home and garden.  Some Scorpios could even buy a new home or move house during this period.   Lucky Jupiter continues to throw up new opportunities in work and career - this favourable influence will continue until mid-2015, so make the most of it.  Saturn has recently entered your money house for a three year stay, potentially forcing you to tighten the belt, or at the very least, take a good hard look at how you earn and spend your money.  Sensible decisions made now will bring benefits down the track.



Ruling planet Jupiter turned retrograde in early December and began a four month backward journey which together with Saturn’s entry into Sagittarius on Christmas Eve marked the beginning of a very important seven month period for all Sagittarians. This retrograde period of Jupiter will allow you to deal with the consequences of any excessive or careless behaviour in recent months – over-confidence, over-spending, taking too many risks or taking others for granted.  Meanwhile, seeds planted in the latter half of 2014 will begin to germinate and projects can be revised and perfected. 2015 should be an excellent year for achieving your goals, with Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter in a fire sign triangle.  The first part of the year (up to July with Jupiter in Leo) favours study, contacts with cultural, academic, publishing or legal institutions plus overseas trips and relationships with those from far away. The second part of 2015 will be about success, recognition, promotion, and business/career development (with Jupiter in Virgo).



January promises to be a challenging month for those born under the sign of Capricorn.  Eruptions from the most recent Uranus-Pluto square in mid-December continue to rumble in the background and there could be more upheaval in the lead up to the final Uranus-Pluto line up in March. The energy of this transit will force you to throw away all illusions and face the truth with clarity and courage.  The January full moon on the 5th could bring things to a head, but the good news is, the more you can accept your situation, the easier it will be to stand tall, let in the light and leave the past behind.  Capricorns in general have a great deal of pride and do not like to show weakness.  This is not a time for keeping up appearances – be authentic, speak your truth and watch the magic unfold!




January looks set to be an exciting month with action planet Mars cruising through Aquarius from 5th December to 12th January to be joined by Venus and Mercury in early January followed by the Sun and new moon later in the month. Mars only visits Aquarius every two years, so seize this opportunity to move ahead confidently with long term planning as your intuition and ability to take effective action are particularly strong. Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter continues his year long journey through your relationship sector bringing good fortune and new opportunities for love to blossom.  Jupiter in this position can also bring new clients and business partners to those who are self-employed. The January new moon falls on the 21st in the very first degree of Aquarius. New and exciting ideas abound, but try to keep your feet firmly on the ground as a Mars-Neptune conjunction at this new moon could produce inflated expectations or make it easy for others to manipulate you.



The karmic teacher, Saturn, will be moving into your career sector in late December for a two and half year stay.  With Saturn we reap what we have sown, so if you have worked hard in your career over the past few years, 2015 will bring many benefits and opportunities.  However, if you are dissatisfied with your job, income, working environment or any other work-related issues, 2015 is the time to make changes, otherwise changes are likely to be forced upon you. January could be a good time to take a holiday either by yourself or  with someone whom you know and trust.  The aim is to give yourself time to think about what you really want and look at what’s working and what’s not.  Once you’ve decided on your priorities, start taking small steps forward and you’ll be surprised how quickly things start to change.  Meditation, dreamwork and journaling are also recommended.

Camino de Santiago - Walking the Milky Way

In 2013 I fulfilled a long held dream and walked the 800 km Camino de Santiago from the French Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. Pilgrims have been travelling the road to Santiago for over a thousand years but I was more interested in the idea that the Camino followed the path of the Milky Way past Santiago towards Cape Finisterre, the most westerly point on mainland Spain and a place revered by the Celts who built a solar altar there to worship the setting sun.Read more

The Sacred Number Three - Secret of Creation

Those who have visited Sicily or have an interest in Italian culture and history may be familiar with the three legged motif, triskelion or trinacria associated with this triangular shaped island in the Mediterranean. This same three-legged symbol can also be found in Brittany in France and the Isle of Man in Britain. In fact, the sacred geometry of the number three can be found throughout Europe and beyond.Read more
