the mooniest Moon….
This will be the first Full Moon of 2018 and it occurs at 11°38’ of Cancer, a Cardinal, Water sign.
The most motherly of Moons opposes the sternest and most fatherly of Suns, the former is supported by a Grand Water Trine involving Moon (Cancer), Neptune (Pisces) and Mars (Scorpio), the latter by a stellium of planets in Capricorn; Saturn, Venus, Sun and Pluto.
Do we want to go with the flow (Grand Water Trine) of our emotions or are we stuck (stellium in Capricorn) in our conventions? Are we courageous enough (Mars in Scorpio) to follow our intuitions and [...]
Seeing as many astrologers like to make predictions for the upcoming year, here’s mine!
Will Queen Elizabeth II Abdicate? If so, When?
14th December 2017, Cattolica, Italy 21.17 Asc. 22°18’ Cancer
I am the person asking the question and, being British, the Queen is my Queen so 10th house.
L10 Venus at 16°55’ Sagittarius
Her role/job as Queen is the turned 10th (radix 7th): Saturn 29°22’ Sagittarius
Part of resignation and dismissal: Saturn+Venus-Sun (269 22 + 223 49 – 263 02 = 230 09) 20°09’ Scorpio
There are no aspects between Venus and Saturn but[...]
Let’s move forward with optimism…
After a twenty-two day period of retrograde motion in the Fire sign of Sagittarius, Mercury now stops in his tracks at 13°01’ (in my previous article about the Mercury retrograde period, I made an error in stating the direct station degree...many apologies) before picking up speed and moving forward.
The antiscion point (also worth watching if you have planets/angle there) is 16°59’ Capricorn.
Wherever Sagittarius is in your chart you’ve been invited during this time to re-evaluate the matters of that house and do so with responsibility [...]
There will be a New Moon at 26°31’ of Sagittarius on December 18th.
On New Moons we set our intentions for the month ahead and this one in particular offers the Sagittarian perspective on our destiny and our relationship with the universe inviting us to look ahead with optimism.
This particular Lunation will be in close conjunction with Saturn in the very last degree of Sagittarius adding a more serious note to our enthusiasm and cautioning us to be wary about what we ask for!
The New Moon is also almost exactly conjunct the Galactic Centre, that dark hole [...]
...down to earth
After approximately 2.5 years in the philosophical, truth loving sign of Sagittarius, Saturn now enters its home sign of Capricorn.
The last time Saturn was in Capricorn was from 13/02/88 to 09/06/88 and after a short stay as it retrograded into Sagittarius again, from 12/11/88 to 05/02/91. What was happening in your life then?
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn so this no-nonsense, down to business, straight-in-the-face planet will be perfectly at ease here.
In this sign Saturn will be a lot about redefining moral behaviour on a personal and public scale, it’s a high [...]
