  • VENUS ENTERS VIRGO ON 21st AUGUST 2019

    Miss Modesty Venus in Virgo intellectualises love and intimacy and is also pretty good at maths when it comes to managing finances so keeping a check on over-spending could be a welcome (and necessary for some of us) break after the Leo extravagance. This rationalisation or intellectualisation of what we most treasure takes away something from our intrinsic affectional make-up thus making us appear “cold”, irritable and highly strung. Virgo needs to express love in a practical way so how about cooking something delicious for our loved ones or treating ourselves to a relaxing [...]

    MARS ENTERS VIRGO ON AUGUST 18TH 2019

    a mechanical housewife? After swaggering its way through Leo during the last six weeks or so Mars now enters the more modest and service-orientated sign of Virgo. Mars has a two-year orbit which means that it was in Virgo approximately two years ago. Mars in Virgo adds energy to the Virgoan characteristics. Virgo obviously loves being of help and service and Mars could take the upper hand making some of us become too helpful without that assistance actually being asked for! Mars here could also make us get easily angry over little things like the faulty functioning of mechanical or [...]

    FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS AUGUST 15th 2019

    …the friendship Moon The Full Moon this month falls at 22°24’ of the sign of Aquarius (antiscion 7°36 Scorpio), a Fixed, Air sign ruled by Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler). Full Moons are times of harvest and completion when things concerning the house in the natal chart with Aquarius on its cusp can’t possibly get any better or any worse for that matter. This Full Moon has four planets in Leo (Mercury, Sun, Venus and Mars) which could easily be seen as a riotous playground full of mischief with each planet wanting to be seen and appreciated in its own [...]

    JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT AS URANUS STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 11th AUGUST 2019

    On the very same day as Jupiter stations direct at 14°30’ Sagittarius (antiscion 15°30’ Capricorn) Uranus stations retrograde at 6°36’ Taurus (23°24’ Leo). Jupiter direct: Jupiter in its home sign has given us 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. Now the planet will proceed in forward motion entering the sign of Capricorn on December 2nd this year. We associate Jupiter, the first of the [...]

    VENUS ENTERS LEO 28th JULY 2019

    Venus, the planet of values, love, and finances, enters the sign of Leo on the 28th of July. In Leo, Venus feels courted and pampered (after all Leo is the King and she is the Goddess!), she hates to be ignored and seeks attention, which isn’t difficult for her since she adds her own talents to Leo’s natural penchant for passion, generosity and warmth towards others. Venus rules the sign of Taurus (her more practical side involving finances and comforts in general) and Libra (love, harmony and relationships) so you should look not only to the house placement of natal Venus but also to [...]

    The Full Moon on 2nd July in the serious, ambitious sign of Capricorn has the flavour of the 4th-10th house axis (Cancer-Capricorn), the intimate versus the public, home versus work/career, fluidity versus rigidity etc. The Full Moon is also the time to reap rewards for past endeavours, things undertaken at the last New Moon. It signals the climax of a cycle when our energy is at its peak and when the time is ripe for the harvest. However, with the Sun in Cancer separating from North Node and Venus and all three opposing the stellium composed of Saturn, South Node, Pluto and Moon in [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 7TH JULY 2019

    Re-think, re-do, re-plan. The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 7th of July at 4°27’ Leo (antiscion 25°33’ Taurus) and end on the 1st of August at 23°58’ Cancer (antiscion 6°02’ Gemini). 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. Entering Cancer again where Mercury is a little out of sync being a Water sign, Cancer is far too emotional for “all-in-my-head” Mercury may mean that emotions are ruled [...]

    VENUS ENTERS CANCER ON 3rd JULY 2019

    The caring partner or the stingy lover? The most motherly of signs welcomes the most loving of planets and it looks like we’re in for just over three weeks of tender, caring love or are we? One of the images of Venus in Cancer is certainly that of the romantic figure forever in love with Prince or Princess Charming. Venus, of course, doesn’t rule only love, it also covers, among many things, finances, self-esteem and all the things that gratify us. Venus responds to everything that makes us feel good, comfortable and happy. In traditional astrology Venus is known as the Lesser [...]

    NEW MOON IN CANCER ON 2ND JULY AND TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

    emotionally intense……. The New Moon will occur at 10°37’ Cancer, a Cardinal, Water sign, ruled by the Moon itself and there will also be a total Solar Eclipse during which the Moon will completely cover up the Sun from our prospective here on Earth. The antiscion point is 19°23’ Gemini. A New Moon in Cancer puts the accent on home, family and our sense of belonging, the total Solar Eclipse heightens this theme even more.  The New Moon reaches out to a new beginning whilst the applying opposition to retrograde Saturn and South Node, which are closely conjoined in Capricorn, [...]
