  • 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 [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS LEO ON 5 AUGUST 2020 (GMT)

    All I'm askin', is for a little respect when you get home (just a little bit)”* After a long stay in the homely sign of Cancer due to its retrograde period, Mercury now enters flamboyant Leo for a brief two-week stay. 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. During this brief stay in Leo, Mercury will make the following aspects: 10 August: square Uranus in Taurus (10°40’) – both in in Fixed signs this could[...]

    FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS 3 AUGUST 2020

    The three S’s…Saturn, static and startling! There will be a Full Moon at 11°45’ Aquarius (antiscion 18°15’ Scorpio) which will form a separating Fixed modality T-square with transiting Uranus in Taurus, modern ruler of the Moon. Fixed energy is static yet by nature both the Moon and Uranus are volatile planets so we might expect some shocks as the energy tries to free itself. The main concern with the strong Uranian energy in this chart may be the research and discovery of new forms of social service or innovative and creative technologies which will help us to develop more [...]

    CANCER NEW MOON ON 20 JULY 2020

    Another chapter of the never-ending story The New Moon will occur at 28°26’ Cancer (antiscion 1°34° Gemini) in a partile opposition to retrograde Saturn in Capricorn. This is the second New Moon in Cancer this season, these “double New Moons” occur approximately every 29 months or so and are also called “Black Moons” by some astrologers. Both the Moon and Saturn are in their own sign and thus strong but each in the detriment of the other…working together to find a compromise could end up badly since they seem to be partners in crime rather than strong planets aimed at [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT IN CANCER

    Thoughts, plans and emotions should now be disentangled Mercury stations direct on 12th July at 5°29’ Cancer (antiscion 24°31’ Gemini). Cancer, being a Water sign, is all about feelings and emotions and, being ruled by the Moon, how these fluctuate in time. Mercury is a little out of sync in Cancer, finding some minor dignity only between 10-20° of the sign. Being a Water sign, Cancer is far too emotional for “all-in-my-head” Mercury. Retrograde planets seemingly interfere with the normal ongoing flow of activities represented by that planet in the outer world. This [...]

The Sun is at 13°37’ Cancer in the sign of the Moon and is separating from retrograde Mercury, both planets oppose by sign, but not by degree, the stellium of planets in Capricorn [...]

    JUPITER CONJOINS PLUTO for the second time

    Jupiter and Pluto, both retrograde, meet up again at 24°06’ Capricorn (antiscion 05°54’ Sagittarius and the c/antiscion degree of the recent Venus direct station at 5°20’ Gemini) on 30th June (GMT). This is the second conjunction between these planets, the first having taken place on the 5th of April. The connection with the Venus direct station to this conjunction hints at gender, racial, financial equality struggles as well as turmoil in the stock exchanges being brought to the forefront in any kind of negotiation. We must also factor in that Saturn will re-enter Capricorn on [...]

    MARS ENTERS ARIES 28 JUNE 2020 (GMT)

    …no stopping me now, I’m here for the long haul! Mars will enter its home sign of Aries on June 28 and due to its retrograde period (9th September until 15th November), Mars will remain there until...January 2021. That’s a long time and a lot of pure Martian energy for us all to handle. The last time Mars retrograded in Aries was between August and October of 1988 during which time it squared Neptune in Capricorn. Some important historical events of 1988: the first internet computer virus appeared (Neptune = mysterious disease), the Soviet Union began deconstructing towards a mixed[...]

    VENUS STATIONS DIRECT 24 JUNE 2020

    Let the party begin (again)…. Venus stops in its tracks at 05°20’ Gemini (antiscion 24°40’ Cancer, contro-antiscion is the degree of Pluto now transiting retrograde in Capricorn. Therefore, Venus and Pluto are on opposite sides of a sort of mirror or shadow effect which could bring up some very intense and obsessive moments regarding the house axis involved). Venus in Gemini is known for being flirty as well as for its refined social skills although it dislikes commitment both sentimentally and financially. Venus in Gemini enjoys a lot of mental fertility and it reflects a lot on[...]

    NEPTUNE STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 23 JUNE 2020 (GMT)

    “Intuition is seeing with the soul.”  Dean Koontz Neptune starts his yearly 5-month long retrograde season at 20°57’ in his home sign of Pisces (antiscion 09°03’ Libra) where he has been transiting since 2011-2012, he will station direct once again at 18°09’ Pisces on 28 November this year. This transit will activate planets or angles between 23-16° of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces). When Neptune turns retrograde, the inner structures that are undergoing dissolution and change are more easily brought to the attention of our mind allowing us to [...]
