I told you, I love the sky. I love all the celestial bodies, the planets, the stars. And so I love and practice astrology (you can take a look at my page here), and I look at the sky as if it were the mirror of our human soul. It’s February, the month at the core of Winter, which corresponds to Aquarius. A Sign ruled by Uranus, a planet associated with sudden changes and shifts, not only on the level of consciousness, but also on a practical le
Italian below/Italiano in fondo As we know, the Winter Solstice marks the beginning of the coldest season in the Northern hemisphere, but represents also the "rebirth" of the Sun. From the Winter Solstice the daylight starts increasing, day after day. We can say that Winter preserves and protects the “roots” of Nature’s rebirth which takes place in the Spring: Winter is the season in which everything looks still but the work of Mother Nature, underground and hidden, prepares

Dear Readers, this year the winter Solstice will take place coincidentally with the so-called “Great Conjunction”, the alignment between Jupiter and Saturn. The event occurs every 20 years or so, but this year, on December 21, these planets are going to be so close that they will create a single radiant point of light. Symbolically speaking, Saturn represents wisdom, but also limits, discipline, time, in certain cases restrictions. It is the

When the New Moon coincides with an eclipse (like tomorrow, December 14 2020), we can consider it like an invitation to look deeper inside, in our “shadow zones” or grey areas, to discover something we can bring to light in order to understand more of ourselves. This New Moon takes place in the Sign of Sagittarius, which represents also the aspira
(Italian below/Italiano in fondo) I love the way the Sky seems to reflect what happens on Earth. I started following the call of Astrology when I was 13 years old. My father gifted my mother with a spectacular book about Astrology, which she found too complicated. But for me, it looked like something I already knew. So, beside my interest for Astronomy, I started cultivating the knowledge of Astrology, this fascinating symbolic language connecting the human soul to celestial
Italian below/Italiano in fondo) New Moon phases are considered new beginnings. This coming one (June 21 6:41am UTC) brings us an Annular Eclipse. The name “annular” comes from the Latin word for ring, “annulus.” It happens when the Moon covers only the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's outer edges visible to form a “ring of fire”. Since the beginning of history, in most traditions and cultures worldwide the ring is a symbol of power, representing the infinity and the cycles o

Long time ago, Dragons were blamed for “eating the Moon” (or the Sun) during an eclipse. Today we know that a total lunar eclipse happens 1) when the moon is full, meaning that the Moon and the Sun are opposite, watched from Earth, and so the Earth is “in the middle”; 2) when the Moon, Sun and Earth ar
