….the soul-searching is over, time to transform and break free!
On the 30th September Pluto will station direct at 18°45’ Capricorn after just over 5 months of being retrograde. This station will involve those with planets/angles between 14-22° of the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
Pluto is concerned with power, regeneration, survival, transformation, sex, obsession and possessiveness. Pluto is the god of the Underworld. Pluto in Capricorn (ruled by Saturn) is concerned with the deep-reaching transformation of social order, laws and hierarchies. He often [...]
…the right measure?
Only a couple of days after the Autumn Equinox there will be a Full Moon at 1°59’ Aries on the 25th of September (GMT). Aries is a Cardinal, Fire sign and this lunation will largely affect those with planets/angles between 0-4° of the Cardinal signs of Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and, of course, Aries.
The Moon’s dispositor, Mars, has just returned in-bounds after a long 2.5 month OOB period (also being retrograde for the most of this period) and is sextiling the Moon and trining the Sun, somewhat easy-going aspects to this rather volatile planet that could [...]
What or who might emerge from the depths???
After a stay in flirtatious Libra, one of its home signs, Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, entered the “still waters run deep” sign of Scorpio on the 9th of September this year. Venus usually spends approximately 37 days in each sign but due to its 42-day retrograde period it will actually remain in Scorpio until the 4th of January 2019 (retrograding from 10°53’ Scorpio and backtracking into the sign of Libra where it will station direct at 25°15’ on the 15th of November to re-enter Scorpio on [...]
...unusual, eccentric, crazy and revolutionary
After a short stay in the final degrees of Capricorn during the latter part of the retrograde period, Mars now re-enters the Fixed, Air sign of Aquarius where he takes on a less selfish, less violent and more altruistic stance, although it’s worth remembering that until the 25th of September the planet is still OOB and given to acting unruly.
In Aquarius we could find Mars fighting for the masses or fighting to impress since he has a strong sense of individualism and eccentricity as he pursues his goals. To the point that he prefers to see[...]
and Venus glides into Scorpio where it may take a tumble…..
On the 9th of this month there will be a New Moon at 17°0’ Virgo, a Mutable, Earth sign ruled by Mercury which is also presently transiting this sign.
The New Moon is closing in on a sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio and to a trine aspect with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Expanding on our ideas might help transform our routine in a very practical way so as to benefit health-wise too. This is actually a very good time to reconsider our personal well-being, does our diet need correcting, do we need to get more exercise, are we [...]
…..and nit-picky and worrisome come to my mind
Mercury in Virgo is very analytical and rather sceptical and could also become quite fastidious, even nagging, with its love of detail and work and health being the main topics of conversation and interest. It’s also known for its craftiness (in the good sense of being handy but also in its deceitful guise too) in this sign as opposed to the dexterity and skill of pulling things out from under your nose that it has in Gemini, its other home sign.
During its transit of Virgo, Mercury will make the following aspects:
7th September: it [...]
