Nature is always our best teacher, and I can't stop sharing thoughts about the importance of balance and the relativity of points of view. The Solstices are always great reminders. At different latitudes, we have different phenomena: in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the longest night of the year, while in the Southern Hemisphere it's the opposite. But at the Equator, during all year, day and nights are all the same. The more we go close to the Equator, the less Mother Natu
The coming soon Full Moon on the axis Scorpio-Taurus (19 November 2021) and related partial eclipse is an invitation to undressing from what does not belong to us and reflecting on the deepest layers of our being - our essence. This axis speaks about belongings - what we own, what we inherited - and
invites us to acknowledge who and what we really are, beyond what we identify ourselves with. Let’s then reflect on the essential invisible to the eye. The eclipse will add a to
This year in the Northern Hemisphere the Autumnal Equinox occurs between September 22 and 23, depending on the Time Zone (If you are living in the Southern Hemisphere and so you are celebrating the Spring Equinox, keep reading till the end anyway, there is a little surprise in the form of a link for you too). In both the Hemispheres, the Equinox is that moment of the year in which, everywhere on Earth, the length of daytime and of nighttime are equal - a magical moment of bal
This blog post is the second of a series of three posts which are including a video Meditation* (in case you want to watch the first one, you can find it HERE). Here below you will find the video in which I am sharing a Meditation to be done possibly between September 5th and 7th, 2021. But, as usual, and because I believe everything happens at the best time, in case you find this post after that date, just do it. It will be beneficial anyway. The New Moon in Virgo is a powe
Today I want to share something about the importance of taking our time to acknowledge our achievements. Why today? Speaking from Nature's and its Seasons' perspective, tomorrow, August 1st, will be "the Hearth of Summer". In many traditions and places on Earth (in the Northern Hemisphere), this is a moment for gathering, starting harvesting, reaping the fruits that Summer is offering us. If we don't take the time to harvest, there will be no space for sowing. The video is sh

Happy New Moon in Aries! In my morning meditation today I picked up this Arcana from the deck I created, The Arcana of the Threshold (sorry, the photos are a bit dark because it was 5:30am and I use only candles in my meditation room before the sunrise). According the Sefer Yetzirah - The Book of Formation (or Creation), considered one of the most important esoteric texts, the letter of the Hebrew Alphabet traditionally associated with The H

What do Dragons and Unicorns have in common? I love to think about them as guardians of invisible thresholds and steps on the Path to spiritual awareness. Myths and legends are filled with creatures, symbols, and archetypes related to different stages of transformation. I started walking on the fascinating path of self-knowledge, development, and realization - which includes disciplines like Astrology, Alchemy, the Tarot, Kabbalah, and much mo
I was just a teen (13 years old) when my dad brought home two wonderful books about Astrology for my mom, who had expressed some interest in that discipline. But mom gave up almost immediately (too complicated!), while I felt so much attracted to those books. I realized that for me that language was familiar. All the symbols, their meanings, and even the very complicated calculations to draw a natal chart (no home computers at that time!) had no secrets for me. In a few month

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
February 1st is a special day - halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox.
It's a moment of the year in which we can feel healing energies at work, and experience an increasing lightness in the air. I dedicated to this moment a Facebook "live" and I want to share it with you too. It's a very simple medit-action (active meditation, and also meditation to take action) meant to help you orient your steps towards the best possible future - that is something you

I'm turning 56 and I'm grateful to see that all the work I keep doing on myself in order to help people increase body-mind-soul balance and alignment, resilience, self-awareness, despite what's going on... Works, and works for me first! I was born on a Monday, and so this year, for my birthday, I decided to gift myself, and all those who are interested in what I l
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
Italiano in fondo/Italian below Did you notice that I’m fond of New Moons? Every New Moon represents the beginning of a new cycle. 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

She was enthusiast about how much it helped her understand herself, her hidden resources and her areas of improvement. So she started researching about Astrology on the web, in order to deepen it. Unfortunately, she found something that was so much misleading, but fortunately she contacted me imm

At the time, the Sun was in Gemini and the Moon in the opposite Sign, Sagittarius. Now we are going through the same phenomenon on the same axis, but this time the Sun is Sagittarius and the Moon in Gemini. I want just to remind that this axis spe
Italian below/Italiano in fondo: Autumn is a transformative season. Like Spring, it starts in a way and ends totally differently. But while during Spring we see the rebirth of Nature, during Fall we witness a process that is much more mysterious. Nature withdraws its energy and turns it inwards.
This is the most transformative Season of the year (corresponding to the Waning Moon Phase in a month) because it prepares Nature to that moment of rest preceding a complete rebirth.
(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
