MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA
“That's the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you're never wrong.” C. Buckle
Due to its retrograde period, Mercury will remain in Libra until early November.
In the sign of Libra, Mercury finds its more tactful side, eager to please (or rather eager not to have to discuss/argue) it is at its complacent best here. A master of playing with words but even when critical never seems to be offensive.
On the downside, Mercury in Libra finds it difficult to reach a conclusion to any matter on hand. Fearful of what others might say or think, [...]
A short while ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Marko Velimirovic of MysticMag magazine and here’s the outcome!
This week, we had the pleasure of speaking with Lynn Holt – a professional natal and horary astrologer. We discussed her beginnings, what is her specific approach to Astrology, and what are some of the most popular answers her customers are looking for.

FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS
One for all and all for one…or is it?
This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius at 29°36’ (antiscion 00°24’ Scorpio), a Fixed, Air sign ruled by Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler) and often referred to as a “Blue Moon”. On the last degree of Aquarius, an all-or-nothing manifestation which could lead to social unrest in some parts of the world since the Sun, in Leo, in opposition to the Moon, is conjunct the Royal (and fortunate) Star Regulus and being on the anaretic degree the Sun could lend itself to a sort of “beating of the [...]
URANUS STATIONS RETROGRADE
…… can we cope with surprises?
Uranus starts his yearly, five-month retrograde period at 14°47’ Taurus on the 19-20th August (antiscion 15°13’ Leo) depending in which part of the world you find yourself.
When planets station, they usually manifest all their power. And the station of Uranus coincides with a trine aspect from Mercury and Mars conjunct in the sign of Virgo and an OOB Moon in detriment in the other Earth sign of Capricorn. Four high energy planets working together not necessarily to the best intent. Earthquakes, explosions and [...]
VENUS ENTERS LIBRA
Needing to find a balance as we process the changes….
Venus enters one of its home signs on the 15-16 of August (depending on where in the world you are as you read this).
Venus takes on a more rational stance in Airy Libra with peace and harmony being of utmost importance as it endeavours to keep an even keel (Taurus, its other home sign is a much more sensual placement).
Some keywords for Libra might be: impartial, balanced, diplomatic, charming, tasteful, indecisive, flirtatious, peaceable and compromising.
In Libra, Venus tends towards compromise and [...]
MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF VIRGO
…..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.
The stay is brief, just over two weeks.
NEW MOON IN LEO
….creativity, love, respect, discipline and dreams
There will be a New Moon at 16°14’ Leo on the 8th of August (antisicion 13°46’ Taurus).
New Moons are times when the Sun and Moon are conjoined in the same degree of the same sign and this causes the Moon to remain hidden from our view.
It’s a moment to set intentions for the coming month regarding the matters of the house where it falls in our natal chart. New Moons can be seen as moments of “seeding”.
The New Moon is in a separating square and antiscion to an almost stationary Uranus in Taurus [...]
