Today at 12.13pm the new Moon in Pisces arrives, allowing us to deepen into our personal healing process. With this energy I want to share with you these images of NATURE - the performance I did recently at Steakhouse Live festival. It was an act of deep healing, of liberation, of death and rebirth. I performed for 4 hours non-stop, building resistance by cutting off the past, trauma, fear. A liberation that connected me with my nature. Hair gathers and stores the memories ma...de at the time the hair was being produced - what you've eaten, how you were feeling, what experiences you were having. It has your DNA, your genealogy, your roots, your past - all in one hair. I felt so vulnerable and so strong at the same time, as if I was giving birth to a new way of being.
The Moon is conjunct with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, giving us an opportunity to connect with our deepest wounds. Embracing the pain, fear, discomfort of this dark place can transform and liberate us from the old, from what needs to go, from what is holding us back. Acceptance and forgiveness is needed, inspiration and compassion shows the way - don't forget that Pisces is the sign of spirituality, use this energy to connect with what you are feeling and what you need to let go to allow the new to come. We are just a few days from the Spring Equinox, a new astrological year will start and with it the narrative of 2018 will start unfolding, bringing change and new life experiences. We have until the new Moon in Aries on the 15th of April to close, let go, cut off, clean, repair what we don't need anymore.
An audience member from NATURE wrote to me "Had so many moments of beauty and peace amongst the many challenging thoughts it brought up for me: thoughts of death and loss and winter and sadness followed by the new birth and new growth that we know must and will come."

Thank you so much to everyone who joined me on today’s workshop The Moon is Illuminated by the Sun 🌙 and yesterday’s workshop on Saturn Return: A Time of Deep Transformation ⚡️What a weekend it has been - filled with realisations and interesting insights!
Teaching astrology became such an important and urgent practice for me to communicate further. Astrology is a very useful, accessible and meaningful tool that helps us navigate uncertainty by giving us confidence, trust and ...a deep understanding of ourselves, others and the world.
Thank you to everyone who came, the sparks in your eyes inspire me to continue this journey!
‘Our destiny, our being’s heart and home
Is within infinite, and only there’.
Good night 🌙
Are you coming on Sunday?
The moon shines by reflecting light from the sun. The moon makes us feel safe, she protects us, nurtures us, ensures us that even when we feel low the tide will rise and we will gather our strength. The moon represents the feminine, the goddess, the mother, the deity. The cycles of our lives.
In this Sunday's workshop The Moon is Illuminated by the SunI'll be exploring the moon, it's many phases and its position in our charts. What makes you feel s...afe and protected? Are you in contact with your body? How important are your roots, your traditions, your ancestry..?

Have you ever wanted to learn ALL about the Moon?
Next Sunday the 11th I'm facilitating a workshop called THE MOON IS ILLUMINATED BY THE SUN. We will deepen into the meaning of the Moon: the moon phases, how to follow the Lunar calendar, why does a new and full Moon affect that so much, what does it mean a Blue Moon or a Black Moon and - most importantly - which are the RITUALS we can do, how we can use this energy to help us decide, choose and move forward. Knowing what you ...need is vital to be able to ask for it!
Please join me - it's going to be a insightful workshop on how to take care of ourselves by connecting with the beauty of the Moon.
Lots of love, Madeleine
In exactly a week I’m facilitating the SATURN RETURN workshop - if you are 27 to 30 or 58 to 60 years old, please JOIN! 💫
The Saturn Return is not what we call a good time. It is what one might call an interesting time, a time filled with stark realisations and ultimatums; of coming up against the wall and challenging wavering beliefs; of testing and pushing and, in the end, living at the limit.
Saturn transiting marks a time of CHANGE and transformation. So how do you transi...tion through this part of our life in the best way possible?
Don't miss the workshop - get your ticket and send me your birth details!
During the night a demanding full Moon in Virgo occurred. We crossed the threshold of a new lunar cycle in an unusual way - as the Sun is in Pisces, the opposite sign of Virgo, together with Neptune, Venus, Mercury and Chiron ⚡️ Just imagine the intensity of this Virgo/Pisces axis - one being shapeless and dreamy, and the other wanting order and pragmatism.
This full Moon in Virgo allows us to see with more clarity the changes we need to put into practice to materialise our d...ream and inner vision that emerges and blossoms from Pisces.
With the stellium of five planets in Pisces this Moon comes to put order, give shape but most importantly to anchor Pisces magical energy.
This Moon has been feeling very chaotic to me - I personally had a hard day yesterday. I became super critical of what I’m doing, feeling my dreams are too big and I’m not capable of making them happen. I was swimming in Pisces waters and suddenly I had to order my chaos and that confrontation felt so uncomfortable that was difficult to transit.
We are indeed on the last sign of the Zodiac, we are closing a year cycle. In April we will have a new Moon in Aries where the journey of the Zodiac will begin again .... the energies are rolling, moving forwards. Mercury and Venus will soon move to Aries, Mercury will get retrograde, Chiron will move into Aries after 50 years, Uranus will move into Taurus in May. Big time 💫
The unknown is scary. Not knowing what will come feels uncertain but the sky is preparing us for a big energetic change this year. Let’s swim Pisces deep waters - we need to let go, to close chapters, to clarify, to purify and to connect with the sacred order of Virgo as a way to evolve with the cosmos.
And the past is gone. Thank you to everyone who came yesterday and experience NATURE - four hours of transformation. I learned so much in the process of creating this performance; had incredible insights about my art practice and my life. Holding the four hours of the performance was a big challenge - thank you so much for being in the space with me, you were all giving me strength.
Today I celebrate art & life but, most of all, the incredible language of astrology. It’s powerful, transformative, healing and creative way of looking at my nature gives me so much freedom and belief 💙
Thank you Mary, Katy and all of the team of Steakhouse Live for making it happen ✨
I’m performing NATURE today.
2-6pm Toynbee Studios / @steakhouselive

Hope I see you later! ⚡️
I’ll be doing the very famous workshop SATURN RETURN: A Time of Deep Transformation - if you are getting closer to your Saturn return, or in its revolution or would like to look back at that time of your life - please JOIN ME! ⛰
Saturday 10th of March / from 1pm till 5pm / Chisenhale Dance
Saturn takes approximately 29.5 years to complete one full orbit around the Sun....
This means that when we are between 28 and 30 years old the Saturn in the sky meets the Saturn on your natal chart, as it’s back to the same zodiac sign as when we were born. This is what in astrology we call Saturn Return - when a new 30 years life cycle begins.
Saturn is about work, responsibility, limits, boundaries, time, integrity, authority, commitment, self-respect, work, work, work, being tested, being pushed to our limits - we will come face to face with our own blocks and be forced to push through them to find new ways to do things in life.
It’s a struggle - an inspiring crossroads that can shift our life and connect us with who we are and what we want. Saturn will ask us to stop hesitating and to jump into a new stage of adulthood.
During this workshop you will learn about the Saturn Return and how it might be affecting you. This is a moment in life where change is inevitable and the way we approach this energetic cycle can make an enormous difference to our experience of it – it can be extremely challenging or an extremely rewarding time of self discovery.
So how do you transition through this part of our life in the best way possible?
This workshop is ideal for people who:
- will soon go through their Saturn Return: 25-26-27 years old and 58-59-60 years old (second Saturn return)
- are in the middle of it at the moment: 28-29-30 years old and 58-59-60 years old - or would like to reflect about that time in their lives
- or want to understand more about lifecycles in astrology
Yay can’t wait! 💫 Join me! .
ONE STEP AT A TIME says Saturn 👊🏼
“Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing...
It ought to make you proud.
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Maya Angelou, “Phenomenal Woman” excerpt from And Still I Rise
I would like to wholeheartedly share with you what the wonderful team of @secretyogaclub have organised for Women's Day.

NTERNATIONAL WOMANS DAY FUNDRAISER ⚡️Wednesday 7th March
This coming Sunday 25th from 2-6pm I'll be performing NATURE at @steakhouselive - a festival of performance and live art focusing on fierce feminism, dirty desire, queer culture and resistance. Please come this Sunday. Be with me in this shared space.
NATURE is a performance that subverts the idea that there is one way to be, and that that one way is essential to being. Resilience, fluidity and uncertainty are great parts of the transformative process of becoming. Madeleine e...xamines our relationship with ourselves, with others and with nature by addressing the cracks inside herself, the inner fragmentations that beg for liberation and unity. A liberation that symbolises cutting off the past, toxicity, trauma and fear. A liberation that becomes nature.
My Sun is in the last degree of Libra aligned with 3 other planets one on top of the other. At the moment Uranus is transiting the last degrees of Aries - meaning it's making a tight opposition to my stellium in Libra. I know that this might not mean anything to you but this is the biggest internal revolution I have ever lived. The level of instability, change and disruption but also creativity and awakening that emerged during these last months has been enormous. The rebellious feelings I had and the urge to break free from old patterns had pushed me to do things even if I didn't feel prepared. Uranus is not asking for permission, is not allowing me to think so much or work in a disciplinary manner as I always did. My Moon in Capricorn is trembling, is having disastrous nightmares and is holding to any little habit to survive. But Uranus doesn't care about the past and old ways of doing things - it wants the new, the original, the authentic. So here I am - experimenting with this new performance piece which questions my identity. Even though I'm terrified what keeps me going is the idea of allowing myself to be transformed.
I'm posting this here because there is no astrology if it doesn't liberate.

you know when you are about to do something different and you feel afraid by the uncertainty?
when destiny comes with what you were longing so much to happen but you don’t feel entirely ready?
when life takes you to unknown places, and in one way or another you get out of your comfort zone?...
life is funny. life is magic. life is our most important creative act.
what you are looking for is looking for you, that’s a fact. but it’s so hard to recognise, or acknowledge or just let it be.
we are transiting such difficult and unknown territory. the sky is demanding attention, the world is shaking & the earth is yelling loud.
