Showing love in an unconventional way…
On the 31st January we’ll witness an exceptional lunation:
A Full Moon
A Blue Moon (second Full Moon in the same calendar month)
A Super Moon (closer than usual to the Earth and visibly much larger)
A total Lunar Eclipse (the first of this year’s series)
Naturally, a Moon like this could only occur in the zodiac’s most flamboyant sign at 11°37’ Leo!!
Leo is a Fixed, Fire sign. In traditional astrology Leo governs the 5th house, so this Full Moon operates on the 5th-11th house axis (Leo-Aquarius): the things we create for [...]
…and it’s time to take that leap of faith
After just over two months in the sign of Scorpio, which it rules together with Pluto, and perhaps a little worse for wear, at least from a psychological point of view, Mars takes on the clothes of the philosopher (and sometimes as the self-righteous prig) as he enters the optimistic, truth-loving sign of Sagittarius where he will stay until the 17th of March when he enters Capricorn and also goes OOB*.
Here in Sagittarius he will be able to express his energy in a more open way with less emphasis on the psychological battle field.
On a [...]
On the 16-17th January 2018 (depending in which part of the world you live in) there will be a New Moon at 26°54’ in the sign of Capricorn.
Capricorn is a Cardinal, Earth sign, so persons with planets or angles of the natal chart at 24-29° of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra will be particularly affected by this lunation as well as its antiscion point of 3°06’ Sagittarius.
New Moons are notoriously the best moment to set fresh intentions for the month ahead and with Capricorn involved, this needs to be done in a very serious, responsible fashion with the aim of making your [...]
….a suddenly serious mood descends
Today, Mercury barges out of Sagittarius with the usual bluntness and awkwardness that often characterises his sojourn there and bounces into Capricorn. He just manages to get his foot through the door when he crashes into Saturn (2°50’ on 13th January), ruler of Capricorn, and newly arrived in his austere palace after almost 30 years of zodiacal wandering and who sternly warns him to walk and not run. After fun-loving Sagittarius this will certainly hit him with force, dampening his mood and deepening his thoughts and encouraging all of us to think, [...]
Mars and Jupiter will be aligned at 17°55’ in the sign of Scorpio early tomorrow afternoon (GMT). This is unusual since the last time the planets were together in Scorpio was in 1946 at 0°.
The two planets are also in a tight sextile to Pluto in Capricorn on one side and to the Moon in Virgo on the other.
Can we expect more sexual scandals (Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio) to be brought up from the murky depths (Scorpio) of the corporate world (Pluto in Capricorn) with even more intimate details (Moon in Virgo)? Will we have psychological energy (Mars in Scorpio) and be rational enough [...]
