  • As promised in my article “Mars in Cancer and a task for you” posted on June 21st here is a synthesis of my experience of Mars in Cancer as it made multiple and simultaneous aspects to planets and angles in my natal chart. The first exact multiple and simultaneous contacts were: Mars conjunct Uranus and trine Ascendant… the whole period of the transit saw me trying to assert my individuality (Mars transiting 9th) and I did this through my knowledge of astrology (Uranus) since I was preparing the August horoscopes on the day the conjunction became exact, I was also striving to widen [...]

    There will be a New Moon at 21°31’ Leo on the 14th of August. In his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, author Raven Kaldera describes this moon as the “Sun Child’s Moon” a creature of smiling, radiant light. The people born under this moon phase in Leo have a tremendous zest for life and love to be looked at, making people gasp and drop their jaws as they charm the pants off them! During the Sun Child’s Moon we are invited to concentrate on our own creativity in any endeavour we might undertake since this is a good time to shine, even if you’re not used to the limelight, or to [...]

    Jupiter, or Zeus as the ancient Greeks knew him, was the King of the Olympian gods. He was omniscient, knowing and seeing everything as well as dispensing good and evil not only in the Heavens but also among the mortals on the Earth. Although married to a very jealous spouse (Hera) he managed nevertheless to have many extra-marital affairs with goddesses and mortals alike thus producing an incredible number of children who he always left to be raised by others. So we associate Jupiter with growth, expansion and luck which, if exaggerated, can also lead to greed and dissatisfaction in some [...]

    This Full Moon is the second of the month of July this year. When a Full Moon occurs twice in the same month then the second one is called a “Blue Moon”. It’s a phenomenon that takes place every two or three years, thus the saying “Once in a blue moon” when something happens very rarely. Full Moons are said to bring completion to the matters started on the last New Moon. Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology” calls the Full Moon in Aquarius the “Friendship Moon” and it’s a great time to hang out with friends and spend time with the people you like and possibly [...]

    A few months ago I started doing something that I’d been meaning to do for a couple of years: keep track of the Moon as it moved through the signs and houses of my natal chart on a daily basis during each month. Although this involves jotting down the movement of the Moon on a daily basis as well as noting the mood or the matters you’re dealing with each day for at least a year in order to get an idea of how the day-to-day Moon placement affects you on a personal level, I’m already seeing a pattern of sorts emerging. I have Mars-Sun tightly conjunct in Gemini which means I’ve a [...]

    Venus, the planet of values, love, and finances, entered the sign of Leo on the 6th of June this year. Venus usually spends approximately 19 days in each sign but due to its 42-day retrograde period it will actually be in Leo until the 8th of October 2015 (except for a 12-day period from 19th to 31st July when it will be at 0° Virgo). The planet will backtrack from 0°45’ of Virgo to 14°27° of Leo during this period. In Leo, Venus feels courted and pampered (after all Leo is the King and she is the Goddess!), she hates to be ignored and seeks attention, which isn’t difficult for her [...]

    There will be a New Moon at 23°14’ in the sign of Cancer on the 16th of July. Do you have any planets or angles at or in aspect to that degree? Which house is the New Moon falling in in your chart? According to Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology” the New Moon in Cancer is known as the “Mother’s Daughter Moon”. Under this moon we are invited to examine our relationships with our closest, especially bonds that are nurturing as for example the Mother/Daughter connection, with the intention of learning or understanding how we can differentiate this relationship, raise [...]

    Chiron was discovered in 1977 between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus by C.T. Kowal and since it didn’t fit into the existing categories of celestial bodies at that time it has been re-classified several times and now has two definitions; as a minor planet and as a comet. We now know that it is part of the Centaurs in the Kuiper Belt, a huge zone of celestial matter surrounding our solar system. Chiron in the Greek myth was the son of Kronos (Saturn) and a sea-nymph called Philyra, when he was conceived both parents were in their horse-form and thus Chiron came forth as a Centaur, [...]
