any hope of tact should be ignored
Mercury, ruler of Gemini (collects information about whatever, whenever it can) and Virgo (only interested in information that can be used in a practical way) enters the sign of its detriment.
Mercury in the sign of the archer has the tendency to overlook and discard generalised information (Gemini) and practical details (Virgo) placing attention on the bigger picture and thus becoming sloppy as information becomes scattered and unfocussed.
Mercury in Sagittarius is playful and best suits his prankster fame, I also see it as a “foot in the mouth”[...]
More facts and knowledge are coming in…
The Full Moon and penumbral Lunar Eclipse will take place at 8°38’ Gemini (antiscion 21°22’ Cancer) and is the last of four minor eclipses taking place this year. The last eclipse at 9° Gemini was a Solar Eclipse and occurred on 31st May 2003, what was going on in your life then?
Full moons are when matters that have been simmering under the surface emerge to be dealt with. This lunation occurs on the 3rd-9th house axis (Gemini-Sagittarius) in traditional astrology; how I think vs how they think, short trips vs long journeys, reason vs [...]
…..will we see clearly now?
In earlier days Neptune was known as the planet of “chaos” meaning that the planet has little or no action upon the physical plane, it’s sphere of influence being largely confined to the psychic or emotional plane and….its influence in the natal chart will depend upon the native’s ability to respond to its vibrations.*
Neptune turns direct on the 29th November at 18° 09’ of Pisces, its own sign. Neptune transiting through the houses has the effect of “dissolving” the matters concerning that particular house and the process is usually very [...]
After a stay in flirtatious Libra, one of its home signs, Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the “still waters run deep” sign of Scorpio on the 21st November.
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 with psychological abuse and mental cruelty not being unknown. On the other hand, it’s powerfully attractive and very passionate. Venus in Scorpio, as in Aries, is in her detriment where the planet [...]
Will confusion trump obsession?
The New Moon will be at 23°17’ Scorpio (antiscion 6°43’ Aquarius) and will be the 2nd of 6 at that degree of the relative following signs.
New Moons are the time when we are encouraged to set our intentions for the month to come regarding the house where it falls in our natal charts.
Mars, dispositor of this New Moon, is stationing before turning direct and neither receives nor makes any Ptolomaic aspects in the lunation chart, it is strong in its own sign of Aries and free to act at will. Mercury is also in Scorpio and applying an opposition to [...]
Mars will station direct at 15°13’ Aries (antiscion 14°47’ Virgo) and will leave Aries on 7th January for the sign of Taurus.
The retrograde period showed us all a rather confused Mars, lashing out in anger and violence, perhaps a little blindly and in a rather childish manner not sure who or what exactly was the enemy to overcome.
Now about to move forward, Mars is at its best in its home sign of Aries. In the Mars station direct chart we have Mercury, Moon and Sun in Scorpio, the other Mars ruled sign. Mercury and Moon are applying an opposition to Uranus in [...]
Will it be easier the third time round?
The last of three conjunctions between these planets in Capricorn and at 22°51’ (antiscion 7°09’ Sagittarius), the others having taken place on the April 5th (24°53’) and June 30th (24°06’ R).
This one seems even more relevant since it is on and activating the degree of last January’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction.
Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions occur approximately every 12.5-13 years, the last one was a one-time hit in the sign of Sagittarius in December 2007, it usually brings with it a great desire for power or knowledge in some form [...]
