Danger and Opportunity

Outer Channel: A Blog for (reluctant) Starseeds and Wanderers

A legend circulates, perhaps a true one, that the Chinese pictogram (equivalent of both a letter and a word) for “Crisis” is also the same for “Opportunity” and, in turn, “Danger.”  I think that, from a physical vantage point, we are living in dangerous days.

Almost anyone who faintly resembles a “serious” astrologer has pointed out the series of seven (7) Uranus / Pluto squares.  Back when (Jonathon) Cainer was still alive, he would write “the bell tolls seven times.”  Curiously, he passed away about the time, maybe shortly thereafter, the seventh “bell” tolled.  But, from 2008 forward through the last one in 2015 (and aftershocks since then), we have been feeling the effects as all parts of the world have become unstable in more than one way.

A exacerbated form of the situation has been with us for about a month, and peaks this week: Saturn square Chiron.  Frankly…

Merry Beltane: DIY May Day Flower Crown & Redesigning My Altar

The Magickal Life of the Snow Orchid Witch

I was recently invited to participate in the annual May Day Magic Crowning Ritual created by Mookychick, an awesome alternative-feminist website which promotes all-inclusivity and features unique lifestyles such as modern witchcraft.

On May 1st anyone who would like to participate, will join others from across the world in gifting one another with a May Day crown which is a symbol of empowerment and good spirit. The ritual steps are simple yet very powerful in uniting us together as one.

Their site offers a basic outline of the ritual and various ideas on how to make it your own.

 As for me- I’m busting out my glue gun and crafting my own May Day flower crown.

I kept myself on a tight budget and hit up my local dollar store’s floral section, where I bought four small bouquets of artificial flowers and a vine garland.

Bring it Home: Reflections of April

Emerald Astrology

Wow! I came a long way during this month and I am not sure where to begin on my reflection. I suppose it will be good to start with my experience of keeping track of the Moon transits since the Moon is the epiphany of reflection. Ha!

I was able to see how in sync I am with the moon, especially since my natal Mercury is in Cancer. For example, when the Moon was transiting in Scorpio, I felt like I was submerged into the depths of my emotions and mostly thought about how to process them and transform them. When the Moon was in Gemini, I often thought about how can I connect with others and exchange information.

Keeping track of the Moon was a very enlightening experience because not only did I learn more about myself, but I learned how to be okay with my wavering day to…

Saturn Return.



Do you believe in astrology? That your life is foretold in the skies?  My mother used to say it was an unauthorized peak into the mysteries of the universe. Quite frankly none of our business. She thought it was wrong.

Well sorry mom but recently my life has felt like it was hit by an unforgiving earthquake so merciless and brutal it has left me sitting in the midst of rumble -shattered and fragmented. Full of questions. Desperate for answers.

Astrology calls it Saturn Return.  It takes Saturn about twenty-nine and half years to orbit the sun and return to the same zodiac sign it was in when you were born. Hence the name.

“In astrological lore, Saturn is the great taskmaster of the skies. We prefer the term life coach or personal trainer actually, since Saturn is “cruel” to be kind. It breaks you down, makes you lift the…

COTD 30.04.17: Subtlety is the key…

Guinevere Fae Tarot

Queen of Swords30.04.17 – Today’s COTD is the Queen of Swords and Sowilo

There will be a fairness in your dealings today as Sowilo supports the Queen in her duties. Wielding a sword or sharp tongue may not go down too well today, hence the need for diplomacy and fair play.

This is a good tact to take, as victory and success will be yours for the taking should your words be soft and your mind focussed.
