• NEW MOON IN VIRGO ON 17 SEPTEMBER 2020

    NEW MOON IN VIRGO ON 17 SEPTEMBER 2020 Those details may not be pleasant to hear The New Moon will occur at 25°01’ Virgo (antiscion 4°59’ Aries). The New Moon will be making an exact trine aspect to a resolute, and almost stationary, although yet still retrograde Saturn, adding responsibility to this detail-oriented lunation. This could make us more aware of our health as infection rates of Covid-19 once more rise around Europe and in many other countries. The applying quincunx (tension) of the Sun-Moon combination to a retrograde Mars adds the niggling feeling that perhaps our [...]

    JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT ON 12 SEPTEMBER 2020

    “Courage is knowing what not to fear.” Plato After a four-month long retrograde period, Jupiter finally stations direct at 17°24’ Capricorn (antiscion 12°36’ Sagittarius). There are still 5 planets in apparent retrograde motion however (Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). Over the last four months we will have had an opportunity to get back in touch with our inner self as a cautious optimism about future events gradually invaded us, more at an interior level rather than an exterior one. Peer pressure may have fallen short of its mark and have been perceived as a [...]

    MARS STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 9TH SEPTEMBER 2020

    MARS STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 9TH SEPTEMBER 2020 Let’s all take a chill pill… In its own sign of Aries and particularly strong, Mars stations retrograde at 28°08’ Aries (antiscion 1°52’ Virgo). There will then be 6 planets retrograde until the 12th when Jupiter stations direct. Mars turns retrograde for approximately 80 days every two years or so and the last time the planet was retrograde in Aries was between August and October 1988 and previous to that from September to November 1973. For those who were already born on those dates what was happening in your life then? [...]

    VENUS ENTERS LEO 6 SEPTEMBER 2020

    VENUS ENTERS LEO 6 SEPTEMBER 2020   Venus, the planet of values, love, and material worth, enters the sign of Leo. 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 [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA 5 SEPTEMBER 2020

    MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA 5 SEPTEMBER 2020 “That's the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you're never wrong.”  C. Buckle In the sign of Libra, Mercury finds its more tactful side, eager to please (or rather eager not to have to discuss/argue) it is at its complacent best here. A master of playing with words but even when critical never seems to be offensive. On the downside, Mercury in Libra finds it difficult to reach a conclusion to any matter on hand. Fearful of what others might say or think, eager to please and seemingly wanting to do the best for both sides [...]

    FULL MOON IN PISCES 1 (2 GMT) SEPTEMBER 2020

    FULL MOON IN PISCES 1 (2 GMT) SEPTEMBER 2020 “Hello from the other side” (Adele)…the call to duty makes dreaming difficult  There will be a Full Moon at 10°12’ Pisces (antiscion 19°48’ Libra) on the 1st or the 2nd September depending in which part of the world you live. In the Western world we tend to indulge ourselves in feeling-based activities on full Moon days but in Tibetan Buddhist monastic tradition this is a day devoted to the purification of “negative” karma during which people are encouraged to indulge less, thus creating space to contemplate the true nature[...]

    MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF VIRGO 20 AUGUST 2020 (GMT)

    ERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF VIRGO 20 AUGUST 2020 (GMT) …..and nit-picky and worrisome come to my mind Mercury in Virgo is very analytical and rather sceptical and could also become quite fastidious, even nagging, in its love of detail. Fortunately the stay is brief, just over two weeks. It’s certainly going to be an interesting ride, particularly for the Mutable signs of Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini. During its stay in Virgo Mercury will make the following aspects: 25th August: trine retrograde Uranus (10°38’): don’t be too surprised if some astonishing ideas [...]

    NEW MOON IN LEO 18-19 AUGUST 2020

    NEW MOON IN LEO 18-19 AUGUST 2020 Saturn’s influence is still hard to ignore… The New Moon will occur at 26°35’ Leo (antiscion 3°35’ Taurus) and will form a partile quincunx aspect to Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. Quincunxes are aspects of tension rather than of action and this one has a 6th house flavour to it (Saturn is 6 houses after the New Moon by sign), hinting at health issues and daily grind, so, again we have a Saturn influence in a monthly lunation as for the past four. The tension aspect of the quincunx is usually released by a transiting planet passing over the[...]

    URANUS STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 15 AUGUST 2020

    …… can we cope with surprises? Uranus starts his yearly, five-month retrograde period at 10°41’ Taurus on the 15th August (antiscion 19°19’ Leo). The planet will end this period at 6°43’ Taurus on the 14th of January 2021. When planets station, they usually manifest all their power. Some info…(this is more or less a repeat of last year’s Uranus retrograde fact sheet) Uranus has an 84-year orbit and spends roughly 7 years in each sign. After his discovery in 1781 by an amateur astronomer named William Herschel he was given joint ruler-ship of the sign of Aquarius [...]

    VENUS ENTERS CANCER ON 7 AUGUST 2020

    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 almost a month 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 Benefic and [...]
