The Churkendoose Song
Does the Pear Tree say to the Apple Tree:
“I hate you ’cause you’re not like me”?
Does the Green Grass ask the Sky so Blue”
“I’m green, why aren’t you green, too?”
A Rose smells sweet, ’cause it’s a flower.
An Onion tastes strong, a Pickle is sour.
They’re different, yet they get along
And no one seems to think it’s wrong.
Must I be a Chicken or Goose?
Can’t I be a Churkendoose?
A Very Sagittarian Conversation with Wendy Stacey of the Mayo School of Astrology. Bonus look at Pluto in Aquarius.
Principal of the Mayo School of Astrology, based in London, originally from New Zealand, WENDY STACEY, brings her Sagittarius Moon/Neptune conjunction for a very Sagittarian conversation. Three decades of Astrology through modern, mundane, medical, financial, and more, teaching quite early on, a social sciences degree under her belt, financial and property background, Ph.D. in the making, and a couple of books to add to two already published.
Wendy’s knowledge is broad, and we talk about a LOT, with a special focus on Pluto moving into Aquarius and what to expect. There’s a multitude of ways this transit can express, so here are a few that are positive if you’re willing to see the silver lining and roll with the punches. Sagittarius is a mutable, long-form sign focused on the horizon, so what better subject than prediction?
We have a combined 13 planets in fire and a blazing el grande fire trine which I could feel in the synastry, reminding me it’s essential to touch base with your element!
I first saw Wendy speak at an online event, then found her book in my local library. She was so strong on transits and prediction in both cases I was compelled to bring her on the Astro pod.
A few of the topics we cover
✷Pluto into Aquarius, predictions, pooling resources and communal living, all women communes, changing values and focus as Pluto changes signs, the big boys clubs are over, new directions in tech and society
✷The Leo shadow side of Aquarius
✷Previous periods of Pluto through Aquarius
✷St Francis of Assisi embodying a previous Pluto in Aquarius period- Animal communicator and Vegetarian, equality through financial parity (aka not having $)
✷Animal intelligence and value/respect-animal communication
✷Insights into Maori culture
✷Current backlash on astrology ie, Wikipedia erasing astrologer bios

Stella Starwoman talks Scorpio, Sagittarius, Woo and Ancient Civilizations
Pro-Astrologer and teacher Stella Starwoman aka Woods is a multi-planet in Sagittarius, Sag rising, and Venus in Scorpio, so here we are publishing on Scorp/Sag cusp.
I studied transits, timing techniques, and prediction in Stella’s 2nd-year class, and since my book, Astro Power (about transits), just debuted, here she is! I credit much of my knowledge base and confidence around prediction to Stellas’ teaching, so this is part of her legacy and lineage as well. I enjoyed every class so much, Stellas warm teaching style, passion, and broad knowledge base, it’s a pleasure to have maintained contact and count her as my friend.
Having practiced astrology for 30 years, teaching astrology and tarot classes for 18 years in Melbourne, Australia Stella is now back in her hometown in England, where she’s available for consultations over Zoom. (Links below)
Stella is a wealth of knowledge with so much astro observation under her belt. Tune in to pick up insights on:
Venus in Scorpio
Predicting with the Saturn cycle (+ a couple of bonus predictions)
Then on into ancient histories and mysteries
The fact is we can’t explain astrology using Newtonian physics
Past life regression
The possibility of ancient technologies/previous civilizations pre the great flood.
Asking what if and keeping an open mind to things you don’t know or understand yet-ie question your beliefs
A reminder that “ conflict is the result of objection to (and perceptions of) difference.“

A Scheme of Heaven with Data Scientist, Science Historian, and Curious Skeptic Alexander Boxer
The Original Space Race
“They say the scientific revolution was driven by astronomy, but you could just as easily say it was driven by astrology.” Let’s find out!
Our special guest is Alexander Boxer, ‘a data scientist with a Ph.D. in Physics and degrees in the history of science and classics + proficiency in Latin. In a perfect storm, or in this case, his first book, these resources came together to create A Scheme of Heaven: Astrology and the Birth of Science.
I found Alexander’s 2019 book in our library system here in Australia. The freshness of his cross-disciplinary approach to the history of Astrology as a driving force of science and early technology intrigued me. Boxer read texts in their original Latin for his research, so nothing was lost in translation. Astrology, astronomy, and mathematics were originally the same bag (and the same person) with various applications.
‘Astrology was the ancient world’s most ambitious attempt to fathom the heavens, an epic data-analysis enterprise sustained by some of history’s most brilliant minds. Humans are pattern-matching creatures, and astrology is our grandest pattern-matching game.’
Find out how studying the stars and what they may mean for us here on Earth has informed our language and driven technology.

AstroTwin Ophi Edut talks relationship astrology, SUPERCOUPLES and her Amazon show Cosmic Love
It’s Libra season, ruled by Venus, the Goddess of love, harmony, and all things relational so come on over to the Astro All-Starz Podcast to celebrate and get into the astro love zone. Fresh from Cosmic Love, Amazons astrological dating show (and social experiment), special guest Ophi Edut (Astrostyle.com) chats about the astrology of relationships and her newest book SUPERCOUPLE: Astrology Secrets for a Sexy Soulful and Satisfying Relationship with any Zodiac Sign. Sounds good to me! And it is, I had a sneak preview peek! See below for what happened next.
Cowritten with identical twin sister Tali, SUPERCOUPLE breaks down the composite chart, which is the chart of your relationship.
Tune in to learn about composite charts (the Supercouple chart) and go behind the scenes of the Cosmic Love series. Ophi has Sag Sage Wisdom, Scorpio Soul, and decades of experience. I love her warmth, humor, astro Biz Boss achievements (that Capricorn rising!), and quotes like ‘astrology is a tool, not a rule’, ‘relationships are on a big IOS upgrade, there’s got to be a better model’ and I second that motion! We’re both Pluto in Libra generation + Uranus in Libra for that matter, so I love that Ophi and Tali are doing their bit to bring people together, and provide a framework to open the conversation + practical action steps.
Listen in for the AstroTwins well-aimed intentions for Cosmic Love and SUPERCOUPLE.

I surprised Ophi by preparing the Superchart our natal charts make when combined in a composite (using midpoints). Since we reference them in the chat, here they are!
What do you see?? Email or DM and I’ll add your insights below, I’m all ears! The first chart is the composite. The two charts pictured side by side are our natal charts. That super stellium in Sag in the 9th with Jupiter in sign on the Midheaven and north node of destiny in the career house/public. Traveling to and teaching in foreign destinations? I know I can speak for all concerned and that’s a YES from the Sagittarians in the room. Have you ever created a composite chart that was played out in a textbook scenario either positive or negative? Let me know!
What happened next!
I requested a sample pdf to talk about the book with Ophi. Since it was a later-stage draft (a galley) but not quite the final print-ready version, I spotted a few errors with my by now, three books later, eagle eye (who says Sag misses details?). Since I feel invested and want the best possible for the Twin’s fabulous contributions, I marked up the first few typos and sent them back, offering to mark up the rest as I read through since I was reading it anyway. Ophi asked if I’d ever worked as a professional copy editor and if I had she’d hire me in a second. Well, as you know, I’m three books in, so yes, on my own books (we also have my wonderful commissioning editor, a copywriter, and proofreader on the Power series-it takes a village!) I said I’m reading it anyway, so I’ll mark them up. The Twins felt they wanted to give me a credit in the book as a copywriter, then to formalize with a fee, so, of course, I accepted! Add that to my already multi-hyphen C.V. #mutable life I love working with mutable signs because our natures work well together. We can move and adapt spontaneously, and keep things fresh and full of fun and surprises.
Supercouple is dedicated to the team (that village) who made it happen, which now includes me! So, of course, a story came out of this one, and Sag loves a long-winded yarn. Remember, you always get more with Sag, and Jupiter!!
I’d only just decided I wanted to interview more authors (I hadn’t known about Supercouple coming out at that point) and later thought, ‘I wish I were paid for reading books I want to read’! The rest is well read herstory.
Keep an eye on the sky and predict your destiny (planetary transits) with my new book Astro Power – see below. Yes, you can check transits to your Supercouple (composite) chart-VERY revealing!!
