…no stopping me now!
Mars will enter its home sign of Aries just as the New Year kicks in. Giving us all a hands-on, get-out-there-and-do-it start to the year, the planet will leave Aries for Taurus on the 14th February.
In the natal theme Mars represents our basic drive, our energy, the way we act thus our assertiveness and our anger.
We experience our first Mars return at age 2 years and this is when we learn to assert ourselves by saying “NO” to everything and everyone. It is at this age that we learn how to control our Mars function or not if no-one is there to direct our [...]
WHAT’S IN STORE FOR 2019?
Here’s just a brief summary of what might be in store for each of the zodiacal signs over the next year.
Please note that this is a GENERAL OUTLOOK treating each Sun sign as if it was without aspects in a fictitious natal chart and considering only the conjunction, opposition and square.
CARDINAL SIGNS – ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA, CAPRICORN
00-07° Jupiter in Capricorn – look for opportunities and grab them (December 2019)
10-25° Saturn in Capricorn – time for a reality check and an adjustment on a personal level (all year)
Before the Festivities begin I’m reposting an article that appeared in my blog in 2015…it’s also a tiny introduction into the world of esoteric astrology.
The Planet Earth in the Natal Horoscope
What’s it like to be an Earthling?
When we were born the Sun was in a certain sign of the zodiac and the Earth was in the sign exactly opposite this. Eg.: Aries Sun and Libra Earth, Cancer Sun and Capricorn Earth etc.
Following this reasoning, we might assume that we are spiritual entities born into a physical environment, such as the body we inhabit.
We need to make a [...]
On the 22nd there will be a Full Moon at 00°49’ Cancer.
Full Moons are the times when matters climax, they are “now or never” moments regarding any projects we have initiated or intentions set at the preceding New Moon fourteen days ago. However this Full Moon could have a rather more ponderous or controlled feeling to it since the Sun is moving into a conjunction with sign ruler Saturn and Moon, although strong in its home sign of Cancer, may feel a little crushed by this opposition..
This particular lunation occurs one day after the Winter Solstice and is noteworthy because we [...]
……it’s just an illusion…or is it?
There will be a New Moon at 15°07’ of Sagittarius on December 7th.
This is a pretty buoyant New Moon, by all means be optimistic but don’t get too taken away because it could be an illusion!
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 New Moon comes sandwiched in between Mercury stationing direct (the previous day) and Mars conjoining Neptune in Pisces (the day [...]
After a stay in flirtatious Libra, one of its home signs, Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, re-enters the “still waters run deep” sign of Scorpio on the 3rd of December. Venus usually spends approximately 37 days in each sign but due to its 42-day retrograde period (now ended) it will actually remain for a second bout in Scorpio until the 4th of January 2019.
In Scorpio, Venus is in her mythical lover’s den (one of them, the other being in Aries).
Venus in Scorpio can lend itself to uncanny ways of seduction [...]
