  • 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 [...]

    …which underlying beliefs have you examined during the retrograde? Jupiter stations direct at 13°20’ Scorpio on the 10th of July (antisicion 16°40’ Aquarius). We have had an opportunity over the last four months to turn inwards and gain deeper insights into spiritual or philosophical issues since our wisdom will have been able to flow with more ease from the subconscious to the conscious self.  This has also been an excellent period during which to seek out underlying beliefs concerning the current matters of the house where Jupiter is transiting in our natal chart because here [...]

    PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER ON JULY 13TH 2018 (GMT)

    heading home...right? There will be a partial Solar Eclipse and a New Moon at 20°41’ Cancer on the 13th of July. This is the third of five eclipses this year. Eclipses take place when the Sun, Moon and Earth find themselves closely aligned. Something worth noting is the fact that transiting Pluto has been opposing this eclipse degree since February and will continue to do so until August. If we have natal planets around 19-23° on the Cancer-Capricorn axis (and the Aries-Libra one) of our chart then we should have got used to this energy and already know in which sectors of our [...]

    “If you own this story you get to write the ending.” Brené Brown On June 28th there will be a Full Moon at 6°28’ Capricorn, a Cardinal Earth sign and the sign of the Moon’s detriment where it is at its least at ease. This is a Full Moon with a huge potential for change. The Moon in Capricorn, in its detriment, where it feels least at home and is emotionally “cold”, is just separating from a conjunction to retrograde Saturn, both are opposing the Sun in Cancer.

    MARS IS RETROGRADE FROM 26TH JUNE TO 27TH AUGUST 2018 AND OUT OF BOUNDS (OOB) FROM 8TH JULY TO 25TH SEPTEMBER 2018

    Over the border, backwards fashion…. Mars will station retrograde on June 26th at 9°13’ Aquarius (antiscion 20°47’ Scorpio), re-entering Capricorn on August 13th to station direct at 28°36’ Capricorn (antiscion 1°24’ Sagittarius) on August 27th.

Mars regards our physical energy which, turned inwards in the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius, may give way to mental chaos and frustration. Our actions may seemingly backfire or go [...]
