  • 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. Both these signs are ruled by Saturn in traditional astrology. When a planet enters retrograde motion it is unable to express its energy in a normal way. 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 [...]

    NEPTUNE STATIONS RETROGRADE AT 16°29’ PISCES TODAY

    “Intuition is seeing with the soul.”  Dean Koontz Neptune sets off on its yearly 5-month retrograde season today turning direct on 24th November at 13°41’ Pisces. When Neptune turns retrograde, the inner structures that are undergoing dissolution and change are more easily brought to the attention of our mind allowing us to review our blind-spots and uncover more hidden motives for our discomfort within the reality of the house it is transiting. We may even uncover parts of ourselves that need more nurturing and compassion rather than change. As we know, constructive change is[...]

    NEW MOON IN GEMINI ON 13TH JUNE 2018

    watch your words…. This New Moon will occur at 22°44’ of the mutable, Air sign of Gemini. This is a very inquisitive, intellectual Moon, hard to pin down emotionally due to its constantly changing feelings caused by its tendency to over-rationalise everything. Under pressure this Moon is not very reliable and commitment issues may surface. The Sun and Moon (together in the New Moon phase) stand alone (they are making no aspects to other planets in the transiting chart) so they are particularly powerful giving a strong rationality and clear-headedness over the next four weeks. [...]

    WHEN A SECONDARY PROGRESSED PLANET CHANGES DIRECTION

    hoping that you find this mini-lesson informative! In a previous article (you can find this in the archives of my blog – https://my-sky-pie.com/abc-learning/ - dated April 10th 2016, entitled ABC learning) I explained how to calculate secondary progressions giving some hints about to interpret the various planets and how to follow their advancement over the years. Now, let’s have a look at secondary progressed planets that change direction over the course of our lifetimes (doesn’t happen to everyone though!). These changes in secondary progressed direction, just like a change of [...]

    FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS ON 29TH MAY 2018

    enthusiasm please….. There will be a full Moon at 8°10’ of Sagittarius, a mutable Fire sign. The Sagittarius Moon is usually a jovial, quest-searching entity that desires, above all, truth and something to believe in. It also loves freedom and is easily motivated. The Sun and Moon are not in direct aspect to other planets as they oppose each other in their monthly dance. Moon’s ruler, Jupiter in retrograde motion, is still deep-sea diving in Scorpio, reminiscing yet highly tuned to any covert emotions that could float to consciousness when the planet stations before [...]

    VENUS ENTERS CANCER ON MAY 20TH 2018

    The caring partner or the stingy lover? The most motherly of signs welcomes the most loving of planets and it looks like we’re in for just over three weeks of tender, caring love or are we? One of the images of Venus in Cancer is certainly that of the romantic figure forever in love with Prince or Princess Charming. Venus, of course, doesn’t rule only love, it also covers, among many things, finances, self-esteem and all the things that gratify us. Venus responds to everything that makes us feel good, comfortable and happy. In traditional astrology Venus is known as the Lesser [...]

    NEW MOON IN TAURUS ON 15TH MAY 2018

    just hours before Uranus and Mars both change signs and continue to square each other It’s time to set your intentions for the New Moon at 24°36’ Taurus that will occur on the 15th May. The Moon is exalted in this Venus-ruled, Fixed Earth sign. As the Cardinal Mars-Uranus square morphs into a Fixed modality (Aquarius-Taurus) as from tomorrow we are urged to bring our physical and emotional security needs into the forefront and face them head on as we aim to be as flexible as possible to any sudden or unexpected changes that might challenge us. Venus, the New Moon’s dispositor, [...]

    URANUS MOVES INTO TAURUS ON MAY 16TH 2018

    Shake, rattle and roll….. Uranus has an 84-year orbit and spends roughly 7 years in each sign. After its discovery in 1781 by an amateur astronomer named William Herschel and, in more modern times, it was given joint ruler-ship of the sign of Aquarius together with traditional ruler Saturn. Astrologer Bil Tierney* has the following to say: “Uranus with its equatorial plane at right angles to its orbital plane is an odd-ball in our solar system and appears to roll on its side as it moves around the Sun.” In the myth Ouranus was married to Gaia (the Earth), he fathered many [...]

    FULL MOON IN SCORPIO ON APRIL 30TH 2018 (GMT)

    On April 30th there will be a Full Moon at 9°39’ in the Fixed, Water sign of Scorpio. This lunation squares the transiting nodal axis which also means that there will be a Moon “wobble”*, a condition occurring when the Sun is transiting square or in conjunction to the nodes and this could bring to the fore supercharged emotions from deep inside. The dispositors of the Moon in Scorpio (Mars, traditional and Pluto, modern) are both in Capricorn with Mars just separating from a very recent conjunction to Pluto, the worst might be over and now we need to process it at a deep emotional[...]

    PLUTO STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 22nd APRIL 2018

    exploring the dark to find the light…… Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since 2008 and this is the tenth retrograde period since then. The planet will station retrograde at 21° 17’ on 22nd April and backtrack to 18°45’ where it will station direct on 30th September. The retrograde period will affect those persons with planets and/or angles in the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn between 25°-15° (allow a 5° orb applying and a 3° separating, Pluto transits are long). Look to the house axis where Pluto is transiting in your chart for indications of [...]
