  • TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE ON 27TH JULY 2018

    “I can't say I wasn't hoping for it, but I didn't see it coming.”  Jessi Kirby, Golden There will be a total lunar eclipse at 4°45’ Aquarius on the 27th of July. This will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century lasting a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes (the total part while the whole eclipse sequence lasts 4 hours and 51 minutes)! The last lunar eclipse at 5° Aquarius took place on the 28th July 1999 when Neptune was the outer planet running the show. Can you remember what was happening in your inner and/or outer life then? This eclipse has Moon sandwiched in [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE ON THE 25TH JULY 2018

    I believe in me…do you? The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 25th of July at 23°26’ Leo (antiscion 6°34’ Taurus) and end on the 18th of August at 11°33’ Leo (antiscion 18°27’ Taurus). 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. During this retrograde we will have the opportunity to think about in which part of life we want to shine in and be respected for our opinions and ideas (the house where [...]

    JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT ON 10TH JULY 2018

    …which underlying beliefs have you examined during the retrograde? Jupiter stations direct at 13°20’ Scorpio on the 10th of July (antisicion 16°40’ Aquarius). We have had an opportunity over the last four months to turn inwards and gain deeper insights into spiritual or philosophical issues since our wisdom will have been able to flow with more ease from the subconscious to the conscious self.  This has also been an excellent period during which to seek out underlying beliefs concerning the current matters of the house where Jupiter is transiting in our natal chart because here [...]

    PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER ON JULY 13TH 2018 (GMT)

    heading home...right? There will be a partial Solar Eclipse and a New Moon at 20°41’ Cancer on the 13th of July. This is the third of five eclipses this year. Eclipses take place when the Sun, Moon and Earth find themselves closely aligned. Something worth noting is the fact that transiting Pluto has been opposing this eclipse degree since February and will continue to do so until August. If we have natal planets around 19-23° on the Cancer-Capricorn axis (and the Aries-Libra one) of our chart then we should have got used to this energy and already know in which sectors of our [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS LEO ON JUNE 29TH 2018

    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. Here, due to its retrograde period, it will remain until the 5th of September…so we’d better get used to this energy! 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. The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 25th of July at 23°26’ and end on the [...]

    FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN JUNE 28TH 2018 (GMT)

    “If you own this story you get to write the ending.” Brené Brown On June 28th there will be a Full Moon at 6°28’ Capricorn, a Cardinal Earth sign and the sign of the Moon’s detriment where it is at its least at ease. This is a Full Moon with a huge potential for change. The Moon in Capricorn, in its detriment, where it feels least at home and is emotionally “cold”, is just separating from a conjunction to retrograde Saturn, both are opposing the Sun in Cancer. Here, on the one hand, we have the power to really transform our emotional set-up regarding our responsibilities [...]

    MARS IS RETROGRADE FROM 26TH JUNE TO 27TH AUGUST 2018 AND OUT OF BOUNDS (OOB) FROM 8TH JULY TO 25TH SEPTEMBER 2018

    Over the border, backwards fashion…. Mars will station retrograde on June 26th at 9°13’ Aquarius (antiscion 20°47’ Scorpio), re-entering Capricorn on August 13th to station direct at 28°36’ Capricorn (antiscion 1°24’ Sagittarius) on August 27th. Both these signs are ruled by Saturn in traditional astrology. When a planet enters retrograde motion it is unable to express its energy in a normal way. Mars regards our physical energy which, turned inwards in the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius, may give way to mental chaos and frustration. Our actions may seemingly backfire or go [...]

    NEPTUNE STATIONS RETROGRADE AT 16°29’ PISCES TODAY

    “Intuition is seeing with the soul.”  Dean Koontz Neptune sets off on its yearly 5-month retrograde season today turning direct on 24th November at 13°41’ 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 our blind-spots and uncover more hidden motives for our discomfort within the reality of the house it is transiting. We may even uncover parts of ourselves that need more nurturing and compassion rather than change. As we know, constructive change is[...]

    NEW MOON IN GEMINI ON 13TH JUNE 2018

    watch your words…. This New Moon will occur at 22°44’ of the mutable, Air sign of Gemini. 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 surface. The Sun and Moon (together in the New Moon phase) stand alone (they are making no aspects to other planets in the transiting chart) so they are particularly powerful giving a strong rationality and clear-headedness over the next four weeks. [...]

    WHEN A SECONDARY PROGRESSED PLANET CHANGES DIRECTION

    hoping that you find this mini-lesson informative! In a previous article (you can find this in the archives of my blog – https://my-sky-pie.com/abc-learning/ - dated April 10th 2016, entitled ABC learning) I explained how to calculate secondary progressions giving some hints about to interpret the various planets and how to follow their advancement over the years. Now, let’s have a look at secondary progressed planets that change direction over the course of our lifetimes (doesn’t happen to everyone though!). These changes in secondary progressed direction, just like a change of [...]
