    I THOUGHT I recognised your name, Leah! Spellcaster is the book that I return to again and again if I need to re-centre myself about what magic truly is. I have the following underlined from your contribution: (page 18) “The world is not separate from you. You are an intricate stitch in the fabric of time. If you change the stitch you change the pattern.” I also noted that you have a Romani heritage. (My great-grandmother was Romani.)

    There is no mention in your biography in the book that you are an astrologer. How splendid! You will see that I have put a comment on the site already – about astrology when no birth time is known – and it was a Google search for “astrology birth time not known” that brought me to your site.
    Very best wishes – and of course I will return to the site.

    It’s lovely to hear you enjoyed our book Margarita – thank you 🙂 Yes I have Romani heritage. Although I never knew my great great grandmother, much of her belief was passed down through to my Grandmother.

    wow-having just had a reading with someone, and covered lility and goddesses in my chart, i stumbled upon [er, was linked to your site, actually] from another lilith article. Lo and behold, LISBON! Several years ago, i became obsessed with portugal and read anything and everything on visiting, living, etc. Timing is everything, though, and things shifted, so i lost interest. or probably just had it put on hold. It’s so obvious that it’s back, since the connection between lilith [tip of a yod, two yods in my chart intertwining] and your site is taking me to lisbon straight away. Will check back for information on your ‘readings’. Great site, btw! Thankyou!

    Hi Laurie
    Thanks for your comment and wow – Lisbon/Portugal connections! It’s a wonderful, magical place! So good to hear from someone who loves it too. Both Lua Astrology and In Love With Lisbon have a page on Facebook if you are interested

    Leah-this is doubly weird/funny….I’m back at your site(:
    I stumbled upon another astro blog [lincoln’s astrology or something like that] and I do mean stumbled, b/c I was looking up a sabian symbol meaning of taurus 18, which turned up his page, but it was really about taurus 19-but anyway, this led me to read a few of his posts, and one was about saturn in the 9th (which I also have)…i read a few comments, and one was from lua astrology. I thought, that sounds familiar-and remembered it was the portugal and lilith thing.
    Came back to your site, and how funny we also share the dream connection-I love that you do the astro dream thing, as well. That’s a great, strong and unique offering! I’m not an astrologer, just use it for my own benefit; it ebbs and flows, but I do have a strong dream work thing going on in my path. I also read your story about your Dad last time I visited, and it was eerie in some of the parallels with my own father (particularly your process relating to it over the years, not the exact specific events per se).
    Not really sure what any of this synchronicity might mean, but it’s something that is drawing my attention.
    Anyway, just saying ‘hi’ again.(: I’m not on facebook, but I do check in with a website/blog from time to time….(:

    Hi Laurie
    It’s lovely when synchronicity happens – and strange too Sometimes it may take a while for the meaning to come through. Yes dream work is very important to me too. I’ve had so many dreams that have helped me in so many ways! The astrological connections to dreams can be pretty amazing too.
    Good to see you here again.

    Just found your mercury retrograde piece on the reddits and got a wonderful, huge jolt of the synchronicities. You are now my touchstone for planetary affairs.

    Hi Michael – what a lovely message, thank you so much. Really glad to hear you enjoyed the post!

    First time reader and I’m loving your site. Do you have any insight about those of us with 5 or more retrogrades? I have studied astrology for many years and have never found much info about people who carry many retrogrades. Me, mercury, uranus, pluto, neptune, saturn, jupiter all retrograde. So glad to find a decent spot to discuss and read about astrology. Pamela

  15. September 2, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Hi Pamela – Thanks for your comment and welcome 🙂
    5 retrogrades, that’s quite a few. Generally the energy of a retrograde planet is turned inwards. Sometimes, with this many retrogrades it can mean that you perhaps felt ‘different’ as a child and had to find your own meaning in the world and/or your own way of expressing those planetary energies. It can (depending on the rest of the chart) indicate someone who is naturally very reflective.
    It can be very interesting to see when/if these planets turn direct in the progressed chart to see if it correlates with any major shifts in your psyche.

    I tried to comment on your webpage alexea but the link is bad. Nevertheless your site is uncommonly well informed and written. Thank you for your obvious dedication and time. Your gift of self and generous spirit is very much apprieciated. The free healing request is another brilliant light in a dark corner. Thank you and may you be happy, healthy & free from stress and pain !

  17. October 2, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Hi Mona – Thank you so much for your kind comment and for letting me know about the Alexa bad link – sorry about that but thank you for trying anyway! Your words are much appreciated 🙂

    Hello Lua/Leah,
    I’m sorry I messed up and left 3 messages on that other page.
    I’m curious–why are there two different pictures of you on your site?
    Thanks, Ellen

  19. January 16, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    Hi Ellen – No problem, hope you saw my reply. The picture in my reply comments is the one I used to have on this page. At some point I will change it but I like both 🙂

    I have been wondering what “LUA” stands for. I just noted it means Moon in thePortuguese language.
    Lovely. My daughter has beautiful hair like yours.
    You’ll hear from me soon concerning a reading. I am looking forward to it immensely.

  23. April 8, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    Hi Norman – Ah yes, I do love the Portuguese language 🙂 Thank you for the compliment and for reading Lua Astrology.

  24. December 4, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Have been stumbling across your site again and again for years now and finally taking the time to say thanks. I’ve just started an astrology blog myself and I’m beginning to realise just how much time and energy it takes! I’m enjoying reaching out and connecting with other astrologers online and of course learning from those who are more experienced. Blessings to you….

  25. December 4, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    Hi Faith – Thanks for your comment. Good to meet another star in cyber space. Yes, blogging is hard work, lol! Your site looks great. Good luck with it 🙂

    Hi Leah!
    I just came across with your site and reading your posts made me feel more connected to a long forgotten spirituality and happy to have found it.

    For what I have been reading, your writings turned out to be spot on which makes me feel quite astonished but also very happy to have found someone that writes in such a honest way, with no pink rose glasses but yet considerate.
    Your writings are easy to read, fluid and self-reflective.

    I am Portuguese btw, Lua.

    A big hug from the Algarve!

  28. July 26, 2017 at 6:17 pm

    Olá Celia
    Muito obrigada 🙂 Um grande abraço para você também.
    Blessings to you.
