I’m sexy and I know it…
Venus the planet of love, comfort, finances and self-worth enters one of her home signs on the 5th of March. Taurus is a sign known for its down-to-earth practicality and love of tactile sensations. It’s a Fixed, Earth sign which is very steadfast, stubborn and unable and unwilling to accept change and for the above reasons Taurus is known as a very dependable sign always arriving at its prefixed goals with its slow and steady attitude. Venus in Taurus also endures romantic situations that most others would have already abandoned.

It’s all about seeing things as they really are.
The fifth of a series of six New Moons at 4° of the relative signs, this lunation will be at 4° 28’ Pisces (antiscion 25°32’ Libra).
New Moons are notoriously the best moment to set fresh intentions for the month ahead. This one falls on the 12th-6th house axis (Pisces-Virgo) in traditional astrology so themes such as chaos vs order, compassion vs criticism and wholeness vs perfection come to mind.
In a close applying conjunction to a retrograde Mercury, this dreamy New Moon may already have all the requisites needed for [...]
The marathon runner...
Mars will make its ingress into Capricorn on the same day that Mercury stations retrograde.
Mars is still OOB as it enters Capricorn, the sign of its exaltation, it will remain OOB until the 9th of March when it will be at 11° Capricorn.
On the 23rd of February, the day of the New Moon in Pisces and still OOB, Mars will pass over the December 2019 Solar Eclipse degree at 4° Capricorn and this could bring eclipse matters to the fore in quite a pronounced manner for those countries and persons having charts affected by this event.
“Pure” Mars in Capricorn[...]
Is the fog lifting? Nope…it’s getting thicker!
This retrograde will begin at 12°53’ Pisces (antiscion 17°07’ Libra) and the planet will seemingly (but not actually) backtrack until 9th March when it stations direct at 28°14’ Aquarius. So, the retrograde period will initiate in a Water sign and terminate in an Air sign.
Worth noting perhaps is the fact that Mercury will be parallel Venus for the first three days of the retrograde period and this may add a softer note to the beginning part of the period.
A Mercury retrograde in a Water sign invites us ponder on the quality [...]
let’s take a walk on the wild side…….
So, what does it mean for a planet to be OOB? When we cast an astrological chart we use a precise locality (birth place) on the earth and from this observation point we take note of the position of the planets in the sky at the time of birth and this enables us to calculate the angles that the planets form to the given locality. Another point of reference however is the celestial equator (which is the terrestrial equator elongated into space). When planets travel beyond 23°27’ either side of the celestial equator, be it North or South, they are[...]
...a little drama or a lot of excitement?
Occurring at 20°00’ Leo (antiscion 10°00’ Taurus), this Full Moon affects the Aquarius-Leo axis or the 11th-5th houses in traditional astrology. Leo wants recognition as an individual…”look at me, watch me” whilst Aquarius wants teamwork…”let’s do this together”. We need to tune our individuality to the mood of the group in order to work compatibly together whilst not overlooking our own unique talents.
Moon’s dispositor is Sun and Sun’s dispositors are Saturn (traditionally) and Uranus (given co-rulership of Aquarius by [...]
love at first sight....
Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the sign of Aries on the 7th of February this year.
In Aries, Venus is in her mythical lover’s den (one of them, the other being in Scorpio).
Venus in Aries is full of bravado, actually she always gets what she wants in any sign, but her she’s more open and adventurous in Aries, sexual, but perhaps not sensuous, and certainly not “comfy” here. Aries and Scorpio are in fact the signs where Venus is in her detriment, where she is at least at ease in her surroundings.
