There will be a Full Moon at 3°44’ Taurus on October 27th, this will be the third of three super Full Moons in a row. Super Full Moons are said to assist larger shifts in consciousness. It will occur on the 2nd-8th house axis (Taurus-Scorpio) in traditional astrology; my resources v resources shared with others.
Full Moons put the spotlight on the darker side of life, where we need to question our motivations and recognize if we are coming from a place of love for ourselves (Taurus) or suspicion and jealousy (Scorpio). It poses the question of what needs to be understood and transformed. [...]
I have the permission of the author, renowned US astrologer and researcher, Michele Adler, to post this excellent and interesting article on Mars. Enjoy!
SOME THOUGHTS ON MARS
1. Ivy Jacobson once observed that you can generally have what you want from the house Mars occupies in your natal chart, depending on how much effort you make. She noted that you stand the best chance if Mars is in the 11th house, because it is the “hopes and wishes” house. One example is Dolly Parton, who has Mars in the 11th at 20 Cancer, the decanate of Pisces, and out of bounds by declination.
2. Mars in [...]
The party sets off with Venus in Virgo semi-sextile Mercury in Libra (11°59’) so the communication starts flowing as we make an effort to pay attention and comprehend. We may be charming and graceful but very discerning or we may use astute flattery to swindle our loved one!

Pluto in Capricorn wants transformation especially of personal [...]
Horoscopes for October 2015
I suggest that you read both your Sun sign and your Rising sign (Ascendant).
Feeling a bit exhausted after all those comings and goings last month are we? No worries, you’ll be up and kicking again by mid-month and ready to charge into the next adventure! Work and romance are still very upbeat and the urge to splash out on something luxurious and extravagant may be hard to repress. Try not to be too pushy if the relationship is still quite new…take time to smell the roses as they say…it’s the journey that counts not the destination!! [...]
The New Moon in Libra is all about relationships!! This includes social as well as romantic liaisons so it’s time to set our intentions on getting along with people!
In his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, Raven Kaldera calls this New Moon the “White Knight’s Moon”, he wants to do right, correct wrongs and rescue people who should then show gratitude to him (according to his view of the world).
Libra is the sign of the Scales which continuously swing back and forth trying to find balance. On one side of these scales we find Venus (the ruler of Libra) who desires that things be [...]
THE PLANET SATURN
In Back to Basics 1 I explained some of the meanings of the personal planets and I also included Saturn in this article. Since Saturn is now at the forefront in planetary happenings I thought it might be a good idea to look deeper into the meanings of this planet and also to explain the Saturn cycle.
Saturn has an orbit of 28-30 years and stays in each sign approximately 2.5 years. In ancient times and until quite recently (1950’s), in traditional astrology, Saturn was known as the “Greater Malefic” with Mars being the “Lesser Malefic”. With the advent of a more [...]
