Marina AstrologerI am a self taught astrologer and illustrator based in London. UK. 20 years of working with symbols and archetypes form the foundation of my astrological approach. My technique for reading charts uses the tropical zodiac divided into decans.

The fixed stars within those decans determine how the archetype of the zodiac sign is filtered out through the persona while the aspect patterns in ones birth chart represent the geometry of the soul. I like to blend the ancient with the ultra – modern, like Chiron, the bridge between Saturn and Uranus. My stellium in Aquarius is futuristic like Uranus, but its ancient ruler is Saturn.

I have Chiron opposite Uranus exact and it squares my AC by a degree.  The name of the site Darkstar itself an oxymoron. It describes my approach to astrology and life in general. I focus on the Moon phases because of their importance in keeping us connected with mother earth and its cycles.  The fixed stars take us away from the earth and into another dimension, but it’s important to keep a balance between the heavens and the earth. That’s why the Sol/Lunar relationship is so important to my work. More about the Moon Goddess.

I continue to research for my future book on the Lilith archetype and Eris, which I had to put it on the back burner last year because my priority was to finish the posts on the decans and their fixed stars through the zodiac signs. My aim is to show that the sidereal constellations and the tropical zodiac can and do in fact work together very well. This will also be the basis of a future book. I have just a few more decans to go so I’m hoping that I can return to the Lilith/Eris project later in 2014.

A few people have asked about the illustrations on this site and yes they are mostly my own work recycled from when I was an illustrator. I create them using a mix of photoshop, collage and pencil drawings. Otherwise I use the the art of Gustav Klimt, John William Waterhouse and Pamela Coleman Smith’s illustrations for the Rider Waite Tarot deck.

    Marina; this is the best and most concise comparison of the two charts I’ve seen-lol. Yes, soul/deep planetary vs. persona and on the earth (pragmatic?)…Probably the best way to compare the two worldviews, as well. Both are valid, but with very different priorities. Both have potential for individuation and liberation-but from different different perspectives.

    This is why I always say the view of moon nodes/rahu and ketu is not all that different between the two-just very different ways of getting to the same place…one disperses and one condenses. As they say in chinese medical theory, when something becomes so yang it becomes yin and visa versa….

    I mean, they are very different approaches, for sure.
    Can’t we all just get along? As they say…not sure with such different worldviews east vs. west. lol.

      it is the best explanation but it is only a stop gap explanation till you really understand sidereal. the simplicity of it – that is just what is up in the sky! just look up.. no debates needed!
