Fish Can’t Climb Trees

The premise of Helyn Connerr’s Mercury Model™ is that everyone’s brain is wired differently and we can discover more about ‘our unique mental make-up’, by evaluating how ‘we each experience the mythic theme of the ancient god Mercury’. Her book Fish Can’t Climb Trees is her most recent exposition of this model. Its title, taken

The Tyranny of Aesthetics

I never knew, in my twenties, why I felt compelled to move from one flat to another, seldom staying anywhere longer than six months. Six months of fixity seemed to be all I could handle. I’d paint the walls, lengthen or shorten the curtains I had used in the previous flat, adding a frill or

Be Fearless

If you are a graduate of APA or an advanced diploma student of APA, studying astrological psychology, maybe using it with others for practise and almost certainly applying it to yourself, you may find yourself being asked to talk about it. Talking about it informally will (in my experience) certainly arouse interest and possibly a

Donald J. Trump

Trump; some considerations using the theory of Astrological Psychology as applied through the Huber Method The image of his chart reminds me of a kite with a tether from the two bottom sides to the upper side holding it back as sit tries

The Ego as Threefold Personality

This look at the three Personality or Ego Planets is from Bruno Huber’s book ‘Astrological Psychosynthesis’, first published in German in 1981. In all of us the ego will experience itself in three different modes, on three levels, in the threefold personality structure. We have a physical, corporeal self, an emotional, feeling self, and a

Confessions of an American Huber Astrological Psychologist

The transcendent planetary influences of Uranus and Pluto can have a collective effect on us , pushing the archetypal energies they represent, clashing like ignorant armies in the night. They are square in Capricorn and Aries; challenging our basic needs for action on the national stage as we look to politicians who like the rest

The Brexit Brouhaha

After 10 weeks of campaigning which took on very nasty tones from both leave and remain sides, the assassination by shooting and stabbing of MP Jo Cox in the street as she went to hold a surgery for her constituents, the apparent toning down of the nastiness and the coming together of people a week

‘Brexit’ and the Outer Planets

It seems that the vote to take Britain out of the EU, is another expression of the base ego levels of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Here we have the sentiments of pride, aggression, ‘me first’, competition, and so on. One of the most disturbing aspects was the big vote for Leave from

Saturn as Mother?

Richard’s notes on this once contentious aspect of astrological psychology were first published in an early version of Conjunction. If you’ve ever been caught out by a ‘traditional’ astrologer who challenges you on the issue of ‘the Hubers’ say Saturn is Mother’, don’t get caught out again! Remember that in the natal chart the Sun

Nature, Numbers, Colours, and the Intensity Curve

On Saturday 28 May, we were at the Chelsea Flower Show, admiring extensive show gardens, smaller artisan gardens, and the magnificent array of flowers and fruits within the pavilion. There seemed to be fewer artisan gardens than previously, and they were vying for innovative use of tiny spaces. By contrast, the show gardens were less

The EU referendum: Do we stay or do we go?

Back in 1975 I voted for Britain to stay in the EU, or the European Economic Community (EEC) as it was called then. Although there have been rumblings and vague promises from the government about having another referendum in the last few years, it’s only now in 2016 that this is going to happen. And

Creative Well Being

So… I’m writing this on a wave of post Equinox and Full Moon energy and excited by the creative possibilities opening up all around. I described my puppets in the last edition of Conjunction and am still knitting… although unsurprisingly finding I’m a little stuck on Saturn! Recent events have got me thinking about  mums
