  • FULL MOON IN ARIES 25TH SEPTEMBER 2018 AND MARS RETURNS IN-BOUNDS

    …the right measure? Only a couple of days after the Autumn Equinox there will be a Full Moon at 1°59’ Aries on the 25th of September (GMT). Aries is a Cardinal, Fire sign and this lunation will largely affect those with planets/angles between 0-4° of the Cardinal signs of Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and, of course, Aries. The Moon’s dispositor, Mars, has just returned in-bounds after a long 2.5 month OOB period (also being retrograde for the most of this period) and is sextiling the Moon and trining the Sun, somewhat easy-going aspects to this rather volatile planet that could [...]

    VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO/LIBRA FROM 5TH OCTOBER TO 15TH NOVEMBER 2018

    What or who might emerge from the depths??? After a stay in flirtatious Libra, one of its home signs, Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, entered the “still waters run deep” sign of Scorpio on the 9th of September this year. Venus usually spends approximately 37 days in each sign but due to its 42-day retrograde period it will actually remain in Scorpio until the 4th of January 2019 (retrograding from 10°53’ Scorpio and backtracking into the sign of Libra where it will station direct at 25°15’ on the 15th of November to re-enter Scorpio on [...]

    MARS RE-ENTERS AQUARIUS ON 11TH SEPTEMBER 2018

    ...unusual, eccentric, crazy and revolutionary After a short stay in the final degrees of Capricorn during the latter part of the retrograde period, Mars now re-enters the Fixed, Air sign of Aquarius where he takes on a less selfish, less violent and more altruistic stance, although it’s worth remembering that until the 25th of September the planet is still OOB and given to acting unruly. In Aquarius we could find Mars fighting for the masses or fighting to impress since he has a strong sense of individualism and eccentricity as he pursues his goals. To the point that he prefers to see[...]

    NEW MOON IN VIRGO ON 9TH SEPTEMBER 2018

    and Venus glides into Scorpio where it may take a tumble….. On the 9th of this month there will be a New Moon at 17°0’ Virgo, a Mutable, Earth sign ruled by Mercury which is also presently transiting this sign. The New Moon is closing in on a sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio and to a trine aspect with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Expanding on our ideas might help transform our routine in a very practical way so as to benefit health-wise too. This is actually a very good time to reconsider our personal well-being, does our diet need correcting, do we need to get more exercise, are we [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF VIRGO 6th SEPTEMBER 2018

    …..and nit-picky and worrisome come to my mind Mercury in Virgo is very analytical and rather sceptical and could also become quite fastidious, even nagging, with its love of detail and work and health being the main topics of conversation and interest. It’s also known for its craftiness (in the good sense of being handy but also in its deceitful guise too) in this sign as opposed to the dexterity and skill of pulling things out from under your nose that it has in Gemini, its other home sign. During its transit of Virgo, Mercury will make the following aspects: 7th September: it [...]

    SATURN STATIONS DIRECT ON 5TH SEPTEMBER 2018

    time to move forward with decision… Saturn will end its annual retrograde period on the 5th of September stationing direct at 2°32’ Capricorn (antiscion 27°28’ Sagittarius). The only significant aspect of the station is a very tight yet separating trine to Uranus retrograde in Taurus. Saturn in his own Cardinal sign, demands pondered and deliberate action yet has to contend with unpredictable Uranus in the Fixed sign of Taurus…something will surely give as the will to restrict merges with an impellent and mandatory need for change. Three planets are still transiting the sign[...]

    MARS STATIONS DIRECT ON 27TH AUGUST 2018

    ….and life suddenly gets a jump start Mars turns direct on 27th August at 28°36’ Capricorn (antiscion 1°24’ Sagittarius) after a retrograde period lasting two and a half months. Particularly interested here are those with planets or angles at or near this degree in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). Mars will however remain OOB until the 25th of September, the planet is still rather a long way out in the Southern hemisphere and could still act as a very wild card. Mars has been more or less at this degree of the late cardinal signs since mid-August and will [...]

    FULL MOON AT PISCES 3°12’ ON 26th AUGUST 2018

    “Hello from the other side” (Adele) Just before midday on Sunday morning (GMT) there will be a full Moon in Pisces. In the Western world we tend to indulge ourselves in feeling-based activities on full Moon days but in Tibetan Buddhist monastic tradition this is a day devoted to the purification of “negative” karma during which people are encouraged to indulge less, thus creating space to contemplate the true nature of reality (1). The Sun’s dispositor, Mercury, is still in bombastic Leo and swiftly approaching a square to generous Jupiter in Scorpio which is the traditional [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT ON 18TH AUGUST 2018

    The first of six retrograde planets to turn direct...we're loosening up Mercury’s 3-week retrograde period will end on the 18th of August at 11°33’ Leo (antiscion 18°27’ Taurus). In Leo, all planets want to be respected according to their nature. Mercury in Leo wants to be respected for his opinions and views and in desiring this, self-confidence often turns into bravado and presumption. During this retrograde we will have had the opportunity to think about in which part of life we want to shine in and be respected for our opinions and ideas (the house where Mercury is [...]

    PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN LEO AUGUST 11TH 2018

    Are we shining too much? There will be a New Moon and a partial Solar Eclipse at 18°42’ Leo (antiscion 11°18’ Taurus) on the 11th of August. This will be the third of the summer eclipses and the last one for this year. The partial solar eclipse will be visible from northern and eastern Europe, northern parts of North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia, making it the most watched solar eclipse of 2018, weather permitting, of course. The last time there was a solar eclipse at 18° Leo was on the 11th August 1999. What was happening in your life then? We [...]
