NEW MOON IN GEMINI
The New Moon will occur at 9°03’ Gemini (antiscion 20°57’ Cancer).
This restless Moon has a preponderance of planets in the Earth element with only Neptune in the Water element, this gives a very practical stance with the 3 planets in the Air element allowing us to look ahead as we plan. The Modalities are well balanced.
This is a very inquisitive, intellectual Moon, hard to pin down emotionally due to its constantly changing feelings caused by its tendency to over-rationalise everything. Under pressure this Moon is not very reliable and commitment issues may [...]

MARS ENTERS ARIES
…no stopping me now!
Mars will enter its home sign of Aries giving us all a hands-on, get-out-there-and-do-it energy.
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 assertiveness into the right channels.
If for some reason we are unable to [...]
MARS CONJUNCT NEPTUNE IN PISCES
Are we all living in a yellow submarine?*
Mars and Neptune will conjoin at 24°59’ Pisces (antiscion 5°01’ Libra) on 17-18 May depending on whereabouts in the world you find yourselves.
Mars isn’t totally defenceless in Pisces, here he enjoys triplicity and term, Neptune is the modern co-ruler of Pisces.

tolerance becomes difficult
From cold and moist to hot and dry, on 10th May Jupiter moves out of Pisces where it has rulership, for a 5-month foray into Aries where it will remain until 28 October, stationing retrograde at 8°43’ Aries (antiscion 21°17’ Virgo) on 28th July.
Jupiter being hot and moist and Pisces being a cold, wet sign could have brought rains and floods in some parts of the world as the planet transited Pisces but Jupiter in Aries seems better fitted to wild fires, droughts and extreme heat some of which have already appeared on the [...]

A good time for the monkey minds to re-organize their thoughts

VENUS ENTERS ARIES
Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the sign of Aries on the 2nd of May.
In Aries, Venus is in her mythical lover’s daytime den (her night cave is in Scorpio, the other Mars’ ruled sign).
Venus in Aries is full of bravado, actually she always gets what she wants in any sign, but 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.
