MARS ENTERS VIRGO
a mechanical housewife?
After swaggering its way through Leo during the last six weeks or so Mars now enters the more modest and service-orientated sign of Virgo.
Mars has a two-year orbit which means that it was in Virgo approximately two years ago.
Mars in Virgo adds energy to the Virgoan characteristics. Virgo obviously loves being of help and service and Mars could take the upper hand making some of us become too helpful without that assistance actually being asked for! Mars here could also make us get easily angry over little things like the faulty [...]
Mercury enters Leo
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.
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.
Mercury will make the following aspects:
1 August: opposite Saturn R (10°): critical thinking, don’t turn this on yourself though, could also indicate slow movement too.
4 August: [...]
Venus is in her daytime triplicity in the Earthy sign of Virgo but also in her fall yet she also enjoys minor dignity between 0-10° and 20-26° of this sign so all-in-all she can hold her own here.
Venus in Virgo intellectualises love and intimacy and is also pretty good at maths when it comes to managing finances so keeping a check on over-spending could be a welcome (and necessary for some of us) break after the Leo extravagance.
This rationalisation or intellectualisation of what we most treasure takes away something from our intrinsic affectional make-up thus making[...]
FULL MOON OOB IN AQUARIUS
…ups and downs (especially after the lunation)
The Full Moon OOB in Aquarius falls at 01°26’ of the sign of Aquarius (antiscion 28°34’ Scorpio), a Fixed, Air sign ruled by Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler).
Full Moons are times of harvest and completion
when things concerning the house in the natal chart with Aquarius on its cusp can’t possibly get any better nor any worse for that matter.
Aquarius is the sign of friendship and group activity, it’s about being independent and inventive whilst being part of a larger group[...]

Mercury is a little out of sync in Cancer, finding some minor dignity only between 10-20° of the sign. Being a Water sign, Cancer is far too emotional for “all-in-my-head” Mercury and may mean that we have an overflow of rationality when it comes to sentiments and feelings or, our poetic vein and story-telling could reach new heights!
Mercury will make the following aspects during its transit through Cancer:
Trine Jupiter R on July 12th (01°24’) – plan ahead and think outside the box.
Sextile Uranus on July 20th (14°24’) - a quick grasp on our [...]
New Moon in Cancer (18°01') a Cardinal, Water sign, ruled by the Moon itself (antiscion 11°59’ Gemini).
The Moon will also be OOB, an exceptionally sensitive Moon...emotionally intense…….
New Moons are the moment we set our intentions for the month ahead regarding the house where the New Moon falls in our chart.
The New Moon will be separating from a sextile to Uranus, applying a trine to Neptune R and also an opposition to Pluto R. Unsettled feelings concerning relationships will probably occur in the days coming up to the lunation quickly followed by confusion and/or [...]
