All I'm askin', is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)”*
After a short stay in the homely sign of Cancer, Mercury now enters flamboyant Leo. Here, due to its retrograde period, it will remain until the 5th of September…so we’d better get used to this energy!
In Leo, all planets want to be respected according to their nature. Mercury in Leo wants to be respected for his opinions and views and in desiring this, self-confidence often turns into bravado and presumption.
The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 25th of July at 23°26’ and end on the [...]

On June 28th there will be a Full Moon at 6°28’ Capricorn, a Cardinal Earth sign and the sign of the Moon’s detriment where it is at its least at ease.
This is a Full Moon with a huge potential for change. The Moon in Capricorn, in its detriment, where it feels least at home and is emotionally “cold”, is just separating from a conjunction to retrograde Saturn, both are opposing the Sun in Cancer. Here, on the one hand, we have the power to really transform our emotional set-up regarding our responsibilities [...]
Over the border, backwards fashion….
Mars will station retrograde on June 26th at 9°13’ Aquarius (antiscion 20°47’ Scorpio), re-entering Capricorn on August 13th to station direct at 28°36’ Capricorn (antiscion 1°24’ Sagittarius) on August 27th. Both these signs are ruled by Saturn in traditional astrology.
When a planet enters retrograde motion it is unable to express its energy in a normal way. Mars regards our physical energy which, turned inwards in the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius, may give way to mental chaos and frustration. Our actions may seemingly backfire or go [...]

Neptune sets off on its yearly 5-month retrograde season today turning direct on 24th November at 13°41’ Pisces.
When Neptune turns retrograde, the inner structures that are undergoing dissolution and change are more easily brought to the attention of our mind allowing us to review our blind-spots and uncover more hidden motives for our discomfort within the reality of the house it is transiting. We may even uncover parts of ourselves that need more nurturing and compassion rather than change.
As we know, constructive change is[...]
watch your words….
This New Moon will occur at 22°44’ of the mutable, Air sign of Gemini.
This is a very inquisitive, intellectual Moon, hard to pin down emotionally due to its constantly changing feelings caused by its tendency to over-rationalise everything. Under pressure this Moon is not very reliable and commitment issues may surface.
The Sun and Moon (together in the New Moon phase) stand alone (they are making no aspects to other planets in the transiting chart) so they are particularly powerful giving a strong rationality and clear-headedness over the next four weeks.
hoping that you find this mini-lesson informative!
In a previous article (you can find this in the archives of my blog – https://my-sky-pie.com/abc-learning/ - dated April 10th 2016, entitled ABC learning) I explained how to calculate secondary progressions giving some hints about to interpret the various planets and how to follow their advancement over the years.
Now, let’s have a look at secondary progressed planets that change direction over the course of our lifetimes (doesn’t happen to everyone though!). These changes in secondary progressed direction, just like a change of [...]
