• Where are we in Italy astrologically speaking?

    Where are we in Italy astrologically speaking? There are many ways of looking into the future of a country: by using transits, secondary progressions, Solar returns, profections and comparing these to the natal chart we have chosen to use for that particular country. We can however also look at the Cardinal ingress charts when the Sun enters Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. The Aries ingress chart located in Rome gives a general idea of how the year from Spring equinox to Spring equinox might proceed, while the individual ingresses give an idea of the upcoming three months from the date [...]

    NEW MOON IN LIBRA 16 OCTOBER 2020

    NEW MOON IN LIBRA 16 OCTOBER 2020 forget love and peace…. The first of six New Moons at 23° of their relative signs. This New Moon will take place at 23°53’ Libra (antiscion 6°07’ Pisces) and will be squaring Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, now all direct, in Capricorn, it will also still be in orb of an opposition to Mars retrograde in Aries, thus forming a Cardinal T-square aspect. The lunation is also in tight separating orb to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January again re-activating this degree and its consequences. Libra brings to mind the usual Venus topics with a very[...]

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO Mercury will station retrograde on the 13th October at 11°40’ Scorpio (antiscion 18°20’ Aquarius). The retrograde period will end on the 3rd November at 25°53’ Libra (antiscion 4°07’ Pisces) Mercury is in opposition to retrograde Uranus in Taurus so we could expect some upsets as these two fixed signs are occupied by two of the most unpredictable and excitable planets. There will be three passes of this aspect, all at 9° Scorpio-Taurus so anyone with planets or angles between 7-12° of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)[...]

    PLUTO ENDS HIS RETROGRADE PERIOD ON OCTOBER 4TH

    PLUTO ENDS HIS RETROGRADE PERIOD ON OCTOBER 4TH ….the soul-searching is over, time to transform! On the 4th of October Pluto will station direct at 22°29’ Capricorn (antiscion 7° 31’ Sagittarius) after just over 5 months of being retrograde. This is the exact degree of last January’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn thus bringing back themes of that period (it was when the first news of what was to become the Covid-19 pandemic reached public attention and now many countries are having a resurgence of the disease with contagion rates soaring). Persons with planets or [...]

    VENUS ENTERS VIRGO ON 2 OCTOBER 2020

    VENUS ENTERS VIRGO ON 2 OCTOBER 2020 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 [...]

    FULL MOON IN ARIES 1 OCTOBER 2020

    FULL MOON IN ARIES 1 OCTOBER 2020 A Harvest Moon with little to reap… Full Moons are moments when matters peak concerning the house axis where it falls, for good or for bad, and some of these matters could involve any intentions you might have set on the previous New Moon which took place fifteen days ago. The first of two Full Moons in October this one occurs at 09°08’ (antiscion 20°52’ Virgo). The Moon and Sun stand alone as they face each other since there are no traditional aspects to other planets during the lunation. Sun, however, is quincunx to retrograde Uranus in [...]

    SATURN STATIONS DIRECT ON 28 SEPTEMBER 2020

    SATURN STATIONS DIRECT ON 28 SEPTEMBER 2020 time to move forward with decision leaving the past behind… Saturn will end its annual retrograde period on the 28-29th of September stationing direct at 25°20’ Capricorn (antiscion 04°40’ Sagittarius). The chart of the station has yet again a heavy Earth/Cardinal signature; moving forward in a practical way. There is a tight square to Saturn from a retrograde Mars hinting at a blockage or at its best slow progress. Venus is simultaneously trine Mars and quincunx Saturn, enjoyment and pleasure are at hand but dare we? This is the [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO ON 27th SEPTEMBER 2020

    MERCURY ENTERS SCORPIO ON 27th SEPTEMBER 2020 the great revealer…. A lot of secrets could come out when Mercury transits the enigmatic sign of Scorpio. Mainly because Mercury in Scorpio is a great detective, uncovering things that some or most of us would rather pull the carpet over and even more so on the 7th of October when Mercury opposes Uranus in Taurus (9°37’) and some surprising information might leak out. Mercury might also go overboard in insults when and if perceiving wrong-doing and ideas and thoughts could get very fixed and obsessive too. On the plus side with [...]

    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 [...]
