MARS SQUARE PLUTO
There is an important Mars square Pluto event at the beginning of July this year, the two planets will square each other at 27°46’ (Aries-Capricorn).
The square occurs in the Cardinal signs which are very much “get up and go”, Mars is in his own sign and exalted in the sign of Capricorn. Squares are aspects which don’t usually produce events caused by you personally but are nevertheless events which require your immediate attention to resolve since they cause a lot of friction. Imagine the energy building up for release between a supercharged Mars and Pluto [...]
NEW MOON IN CANCER
The New Moon will occur in the maternal sign of Cancer at 7°22’ (antiscion 22°38’ Gemini) on the 28th or 29th of June depending on where in the world you find yourself.
Being in its own sign this is obviously a very dignified Moon, loving and caring, or perhaps not since the Moon is also very OOB and still heading North. OOB Moons are known to have a very personal idea of what mothering might mean.
The New Moon is separating by only a few minutes of arc from a square aspect to Jupiter in Aries, optimism and well-being are still a big[...]
NEPTUNE STATIONS RETROGRADE
“Intuition is seeing with the soul.” Dean Koontz
Just hours before the New Moon in Cancer, Neptune starts his yearly 5-month long retrograde season at 25°26’ in his home sign of Pisces (antiscion 04°34’ Libra) where he has been transiting since 2011-2012. This transit will activate planets or angles between 29-22° of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces).
When Neptune turns retrograde, the inner structures that are undergoing dissolution and change are more easily brought to the attention of our mind allowing us to review [...]
VENUS MOVES INTO GEMINI
From Earth to Air, from sensual to frivolous…it’s party time!
Venus in Gemini is known for being flirty and also for its refined social skills although it dislikes commitment both sentimentally and financially. Venus in Gemini enjoys a lot of mental fertility and it reflects a lot on matters of the heart (usually deciding that single is better than partnered) since it is far too rational to be interested in steady love unions. It could also be a spendthrift as far as intellectual pursuits are concerned (books especially) since it values communication and [...]
FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS
There will be a full Moon at 23°25’ Sagittarius (antiscion 6°35’ Capricorn), a mutable Fire sign. The Sagittarius Moon is usually a jovial, quest-searching entity that desires, above all, truth and something to believe in. It also loves freedom and is easily motivated.
The Modalities in the lunation chart are well balanced whilst there is only Neptune in the Water signs showing that empathy isn’t exactly a priority.
There are also 5 planets strong in their own signs: Mercury in Gemini, Venus in Taurus, Mars in Aries, Saturn R in Aquarius and Neptune in[...]
SATURN STATIONS RETROGRADE
Sorting out the possible from the impossible….
Saturn will station retrograde at 25°15’ Aquarius (antiscion 4°45’ Scorpio) on the 4th of June to station direct at 18°35’ Aquarius on 22nd October. This will be Saturn’s final retrograde period in Aquarius. Saturn will once again transit Aquarius as from January 2050.
Saturn is the planet of restriction and order which rewards hard work and perseverance. In Aquarius it concerns social order and reform but it also demonstrates a wariness towards all types of innovations and experiments.
At the [...]
MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT
Slow and steady in the sign of the bull
On the 3rd of June Mercury will station direct at 26°06’ Taurus (antiscion 3°54’ Leo) after a 20-day retrograde period. Mercury has two types of retrograde cycles. The first type is when Mercury moves fairly quickly and backtracks around 14 degrees, during the second type the planet moves much more slowly in his retrograde movement covering only 9 degrees. The second type is considered the most problematic since the planet is renowned for its Mercurial (speedy) traits and dragging its feet whilst proceeding backwards [...]
