a mechanical housewife?
After swaggering its way through Leo during the last six weeks or so Mars now enters the more modest and service-orientated sign of Virgo.
Mars has a two-year orbit which means that it was in Virgo approximately two years ago.
Mars in Virgo adds energy to the Virgoan characteristics. Virgo obviously loves being of help and service and Mars could take the upper hand making some of us become too helpful without that assistance actually being asked for! Mars here could also make us get easily angry over little things like the faulty functioning of mechanical or [...]
Have you done your homework?
Saturn will end its annual retrograde period on the 25th of August stationing direct at 21°10’ Sagittarius.
During this retrograde you will indeed have had the opportunity to renegotiate and review any past activities or commitments that have been a source of frustration for you. Having had a chance to tie up loose ends and finish uncompleted tasks in the matters of the house it is transiting in as well as perhaps having said “NO” to others if this meant a big “YES” for you!
Contemporary American astrologer, Noel Tyl, writes that the Saturn [...]
…the big one
This is the 2nd New Moon in the sign of Leo this year which is in itself a very rare event and it will also be a Total Solar Eclipse at 28°52’ Leo.
This particular Eclipse will be visible in various degrees of darkness throughout North America with the path of totality passing through Oregon, Idaho and across the US exiting in South Carolina. The longest duration of darkness will be in western Kentucky where the obscurity will last 2’40”, some astrologers suggest that this is the duration in years of the effects of the eclipse.

Mercury starts its retrograde period at 11°38’ Virgo and backtracks to 28° 42’ Leo where it again stops in its tracks on 4th September to station direct.
I think that this retrograde season for Virgoans could be fairly easy. They are already used to sorting out information with regards to its usefulness and planning is part of their nature, the introspective motif of the retrograde period could thus be almost “familiar” to them. On the other hand I think this could be a rather trying period for Geminis who by nature are mentally all-over-the-place (with a [...]
The Full Moon and the partial lunar eclipse of this month falls at 15°25’ of the sign of Aquarius, a Fixed, Air sign ruled by Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler).
Full Moons are times of harvest and completion
when things concerning the house in the natal chart with Aquarius on its cusp can’t possibly get any better, nor any worse for that matter.
But this is also a partial lunar eclipse.
The last lunar eclipse at 15° Aquarius was on August 8th 1998
Whilst Solar eclipses manifest as external events in our lives, Lunar eclipses indicate [...]
