JUPITER ENTERS PISCES FOR A BRIEF STAY ON 13 MAY 2021
After a really quick run through the sign of Aquarius, Jupiter will briefly enter the sign of Pisces on the 13th of May where it will remain for 76 days after which it will retrograde back into Aquarius on the 28th July. During that time Jupiter will cover only the first two degrees of the sign, passing through them twice (first direct and then retrograde).
Jupiter is the traditional night-time ruler of Pisces, only more recently was Neptune assigned as modern co-ruler and the two will conjoin in Pisces in April 2022.
Jupiter is a hot [...]
NEW MOON IN TAURUS 11 MAY 2021
feeling comfortable isn’t always the best thing….
It’s time to set your intentions for the New Moon at 21°17 Taurus (antiscion 8°43’ Leo) that will occur on the 11th of May. The Moon is exalted in this Venus-ruled, Fixed Earth sign.

VENUS ENTERS GEMINI ON 8-9TH MAY 2021
From Earth to Air, from sensual to frivolous…it’s party time!
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 matters of the heart (usually deciding that single is better than partnered) since it is far too rational to be interested in steady love unions. It could also be a spendthrift as far as intellectual pursuits are concerned (books especially) since it values [...]
MERCURY IN GEMINI GOES FIRST OOB AND THEN RETROGRADE
Mercury enters one of the signs that it rules on the 3-4th May (depending on your time zone) and goes OOB at 5°34’ of the sign on the 7th remaining in this condition until the 30th of May when it will be at 24° 43’ Gemini just after stationing retrograde the previous day.
Mercury is obviously in his element here, a rational and agile thinker open to new ideas and experimentations, puns and intellectual flexibility are also part of the game although Mercury is also the prankster of the zodiac and here words could [...]
FULL MOON IN SCORPIO 26-27 APRIL 2021
Finding the answers but keeping them to ourselves.
Only hours before Pluto stations retrograde we will have a Full Moon at 7°06’ Scorpio (antiscion 22°54’ Aquarius).
Full Moons are also known to be times when things climax, when we decide that enough is enough for certain aspects of our life because we avert an intensified conflict between two major areas of our life and we need to find a way to honour both.
They shine a light on the area that is “hidden” and in this case, in traditional astrology, all matters concerning the 8th house and [...]

SLOW AND STEADY WHEN MERCURY RIDES THE BULL….
Mercury enters Taurus on the 19th April. Mercury in this Fixed, Earth sign can be associated with common sense, down-to-earth thinking and practical intelligence with an eye on security and self-worth issues. When contrasted in the natal chart, he could turn narrow-minded, stubborn, inflexible and suspicious of new ideas and theories. In all cases he takes his time to make decisions but once made they usually become irrevocable.
Mercury transits are fast. During the planet’s stay in Taurus the speed will be extra fast at 2°+ per day so the [...]
