• MARS ENTERS ARIES 30 APRIL 2024

    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. Mars enters Aries the day after Venus enters Taurus and they find themselves tied together by reception in mutual detriment however they will have little to share (for better or for worse) since being in adjacent signs they can’t see each other! 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 [...]

    VENUS ENTERS TAURUS 29 APRIL 2024

    VENUS ENTERS TAURUS I’m sexy and I know it… Venus the planet of love, comfort, finances and self-worth enters one of her home signs. Taurus is a sign known for its down-to-earth practicality and love of tactile sensations.

Venus in Taurus also endures romantic situations that most others would have already abandoned. Venus in Taurus is [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT 25  APRIL 2024

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT Time to move forward again Mercury stations direct at 15°58’ Aries (antiscion 14°02’Virgo) on the 25 April. Interesting to note that Mercury was the term ruler during the recent Solar Eclipse at 19°24’ Aries and thus activated the eclipse degree on the 4th March, 16th March (R) and will do so again on the 5th May. Gemini and Virgo, both ruled by Mercury, may respond differently to the signs their ruling planet moves through on its journey backwards. Virgo, being an Earth sign, doesn’t take too kindly to Fire signs finding them a little too [...]

    FULL MOON IN SCORPIO 23-24 APRIL 2024

    FULL MOON IN SCORPIO There will be a Full Moon at 04°18’ in the Fixed, Water sign of Scorpio (antiscion 25°42’Aquario). The dispositors of the Moon in Scorpio are Mars (traditional) and Pluto (modern). The lunation is in a separating T-square with modern ruler Pluto. A T-Square in the Fixed signs with a Pluto apex indicates that our head (Sun - leaders) and our heart (Moon - people) are both pulling in opposite directions and Pluto squaring both these planets implies a dilemma between the wilfull desire to obtain the desired goals through sheer force (our leaders) and the need to [...]

    VENUS ENTERS ARIES 4-5 APRIL 2024

    VENUS ENTERS ARIES 4-5 APRIL 2024 love at first sight.... Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the sign of Aries on the 4-5th of April (depending where you find yourself in the world at that moment). In Aries, Venus is in her mythical lover’s den (one of them, the other being in Scorpio). 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[...]
