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

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!

The Land of Green Magic or Neptune’s Gift

This piece by former API tutor Wendy Oak first appeared in an early issue of Conjunction. When my Age Point crossed over Neptune shortly before my MC, I experienced a sublime dissolution of all that I thought I was, and became, briefly, part of a transpersonal understanding. It happened out of the blue when I

Why did I do that?

I was recently asked why I had done something that was apparently rather ill-judged, and realised that I had no idea why. I had just done it. Of course, I could produce plausible reasons as to why I had done it, even try to justify it, and there might be an element of truth in

Glove Puppets

For some time now I’ve felt a bit lost and in a sort of in-between stage; a door in my life seemed to have closed and everything was on hold as if waiting for something new to emerge. Then on a recent trip to London I came across a book written by Amy Mindell called

Dear Pluto

It’s good to see you back in the news after that terrible time in August 2006 when you were demoted from your status as a planet in our solar system by a group of scientists and astronomers who’d got together in Prague to do the deed. You were downgraded to a dwarf planet. That meant
