FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN 24 JUNE 2021
The Full Moon will occur at 03°27’ in the serious, ambitious sign of Capricorn (antiscion 26°33’ Sagittarius) and has the flavour of the 4th-10th house axis (Cancer-Capricorn), the intimate versus the public, home versus work/career, fluidity versus rigidity etc.
An emotionally dry Moon in Capricorn with its dispositor Saturn retrograde in the individualistic and humanitarian sign of Aquarius separating from a square to an unpredictable Uranus in Taurus (both Fixed modality) that craves freedom but only inside its own comfort zone.

MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT 22 JUNE 2021
Is it actually over?
After 20 days of massive hiccups and often total chaos (at least for this Gem) Mercury will station direct at 16°07’ (antiscion 13°53’ Cancer only 1° applying to transiting Venus! Will we be witnessing some lovely acts of kindness or will we be more able to see beauty in normality?)
JUPITER STATIONS RETROGRADE 20 JUNE 2021
…look inside, you’ll find the answer there
Jupiter stations retrograde at 2°11’ Pisces (antiscion 27°49’ Libra) a sign where it has been since the 13th of May. It will re-enter Aquarius by retrograde motion on the 28th of July.
The Jupiter retrograde station occurs only 12 hours before the Summer Solstice when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer. Perhaps it’s worth mentioning that the greatly announced Jupiter-Saturn conjunction took place on the Winter Solstice last year (21 December 2020). Only a couple of days after the Jupiter [...]
SATURN-URANUS SQUARE 14 JUNE 2021
“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” Malcolm X
This will be the second of three upper waning squares between the two planets and it will occur at 13°06’ with Saturn retrograde in Aquarius and Uranus direct in Taurus.
The first square occurred on 17th February (7°13’) with both planets direct and the next square will occur on 24th December (11°05’) when only Uranus is retrograde.
MARS ENTERS LEO 11 JUNE 2021
From fighting for his tribe to fighting for his pride.
Leo is a fixed sign and consequently Mars here wants to hold on to its position which it naturally assumes to be that of a successful leader, accepted by all. The Leonine energy flows in self-centred channels firmly convinced that it will always put its best foot forward and by using its magnetism and charm will get away with practically anything.
Criticism tends to irritate Mars in Leo, however tensions soon blow over but certainly not before a dramatic and noisy tantrum!
All times GMT.
On the 1st of [...]
SOLAR ECLIPSE IN GEMINI 10 JUNE 2021
The eclipse will occur at 19°47’ Gemini (antiscion 10°13’ Cancer) and will be visible as a solar eclipse in parts of Russia, Greenland, and northern Canada. Weather permitting, those in Northern Asia, Europe, and the United States will see a partial eclipse.
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. However, the need[...]
VENUS ENTERS CANCER ON 2 JUNE 2021
The caring partner or the stingy lover…from socialite to housewife
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.[...]
MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE 29 MAY 2021
A good time for the monkey minds to re-organize their thoughts
Only a few hours before exiting its OOB status, Mercury stations retrograde at 24°43’ Gemini (antiscion 5°17’ Cancer), one of the signs that it rules together with Virgo.
The retrograde period will end on 22nd June when Mercury stations direct at 16°07’ Gemini.
The last time Mercury was retrograde in Gemini was between May and June 2015. What was going on in your life then?
Mercury entered Gemini on the 4th of May and became OOB on the 8th so we’ve had a good three [...]
TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS 26 MAY 2021
tell me your truth….
The total Lunar Eclipse will occur at 5°25’ Sagittarius (antiscion 24°35’ Capricorn) and will be visible from South East Asia, Australia, North and South America, the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans as well as Antarctica (1).
A lunar eclipse is like an extra powerful full Moon which highlights the area of our natal chart where we are ready to relinquish long standing habits or patterns. During this time we become more conscious of our urges and how these play out in our lives. New paths and possibilities [...]
SATURN’S 5-MONTH RETROGRADE PERIOD STARTS ON 23 MAY 2021
Sorting out the possible from the impossible….
Saturn will station retrograde at 13°31’ Aquarius (antiscion 16°29’ Scorpio) on the 23rd of May to station direct at 06°52’ Aquarius on 11th October.
Saturn is the planet of restriction and order which rewards hard work and perseverance. In Aquarius it concerns social order and reform but it also demonstrates a wariness towards all types of innovations and experiments.
At the start and at the end of each retrograde period the planet gradually slows down almost to a [...]
