JUPITER-URANUS SQUARE 17 JANUARY 2021
Jupiter-Uranus contacts are often considered as “lucky breaks” or unexpected windfalls. Taking into consideration the signs that these planets are presently transiting and the square aspect between them (6°44’ with Uranus stationary) there could be other manifestations that we might like to consider:
Fanatical (Aquarius) nationalism (Jupiter) forces (square) sudden (Uranus) practical (Taurus) action.
Humanitarian (Aquarius) optimism (Jupiter) leads to (square) social (Uranus) calm (Taurus).
Impartial (Aquarius) luck (Jupiter) results in [...]
URANUS STATIONS DIRECT ON 14 JANUARY 2021
The road ahead seems quite bumpy….
Uranus ends its yearly, five-month retrograde period at 06°43’ Taurus (antiscion 23°17’ Leo) on the 14th January.
So, what might we expect by taking Uranus at face-value in Taurus now that it is about to move direct once more?
On a mundane level, the disruption and innovation of monetary values as we now know them – Bitcoin and virtual money have rocketed, we are being invited and coaxed to use electronic payments in lieu of cash and thus getting involved in yet another way of having our spending[...]
NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN 12-13 JANUARY 2021
The New Moon will occur at 23°13’ Capricorn (antiscion 6°37’ Sagittarius) and will be OOB.
The Moon's transit through the declinations will cycle between nominal highs and extreme highs over a period of about 18 years. The last cycle of extreme highs ended in 2011. The present cycle of extreme highs began in April 2020.*
Capricorn is a Cardinal, Earth sign, so persons with planets or angles of the natal chart at 21-26° of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra will be particularly affected by this lunation.
New Moons are [...]
VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN ON 8th JANUARY 2021
Only four hours after Mercury enters the sign of Aquarius (Fixed, Air) and two days after Mars enters Taurus (Fixed, Earth), Venus enters Capricorn (Cardinal, Earth). Three of the so-called “personal” planets changing signs so near together force a change of nuance to our natal way of acting, thinking and loving more or less all at once. Look to your natal placements to see how these new elements/modes harmonizes or clashes with your chart.
From frivolous and gaudy to self-possessed and distinct. Social propriety and etiquette, at least on a[...]
MERCURY ENTERS AQUARIUS 08 JANUARY 2021
Abstract ideas or unconventional truths?
In Aquarius, a sign co-ruled by Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (modern), Mercury is even more thirsty for knowledge, always in search of new ideas and technologies but ready to reject or even abandon them as soon as new (Uranus) becomes normal (Saturn).
Mercury in Aquarius will give us new visions, make us aware of new possibilities, allow us to envision an ideal world or society, which might be great as a theory, but much less so as a practicality.
Aquarius is a fixed Air sign so here Mercury is at [...]
MARS ENTERS TAURUS ON 6 JANUARY 2021
Least resistance is perhaps the best option….
After 7 months in home sign Aries, Mars finally moves into Taurus.
Mars in Taurus is not exactly at home and could take a little while to get used to slowing down and being nice. Mars here is a bit like a time bomb, the natural aggressivity of Mars has to be calmed down and often results in pent up anger turning out as devastating rage once it surfaces.
Mars in Taurus thrives on security, safety, routine and organization, slow to warm up but super passionate once the fire is lit.
Another plus is[...]
FULL MOON IN CANCER 30 DECEMBER 2020 (GMT)
We don’t want to know…or do we?
The Full Moon will be at 8°53’ Cancer (antiscion 21°07’ Gemini).
Once again, a heavily dominant Earth/Cardinal chart, indicating a practical action-oriented energy.
Full Moons are when matters climax, they are “now or never” moments regarding any projects we have initiated or intentions we have set at the preceding New Moon fourteen days ago.
As well as opposing the Sun in Capricorn, the Moon, well dignified in its own sign, will also make an easy sextile aspect to Uranus, retrograde in [...]
I suggest your read your Sun and Rising sign.
Jupiter hurtling through Aquarius and your 11th house of friends and groups will sextile your first house Sun from mid-December 2020 to mid-May to go retrograde and then forward over the last decan until the end of the year: this should help life flow in the right direction especially if any legal matters are involved. Moreover, the first half of the sign will also have Saturn in a sextile aspect to your first house Sun throughout the year, again in your 11th house, and this could bring merits and recognitions, [...]
OOB MERCURY MOVES INTO CAPRICORN 20 DECEMBER 2020
OOB Mercury barges out of Sagittarius with the usual bluntness and awkwardness that often characterises his sojourn there and bounces into Capricorn. It’s OOB status started on December 13th and ends on January 4th.
After fun-loving Sagittarius this will certainly hit him with force, dampening his mood and deepening his thoughts and encouraging all of us to think, plan and talk in a much more serious fashion more so during the OOB phase which lasts for the major part of Mercury’s stay in Capricorn.
Mercury’s first [...]
JUPITER ENTERS AQUARIUS 19 DECEMBER 2020
A huge bump in welfare benefits?
Jupiter, the planet of plenty, faith and optimism, enters the Fixed Air sign of Aquarius and seemingly makes a dash to get out of the sign as soon as possible! In fact, on May 13th the planet makes its ingress into watery Pisces only to re-enter Aquarius by retrograde motion on July 28th.
Aquarius’s traditional ruler is Saturn, so Jupiter moves from ambitious, stern Capricorn to the more future-oriented, individualistic yet collectivist sign of Aquarius. The modern co-ruler of this sign is Uranus now [...]
