  • PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE ON 10th JANUARY 2020

    the mooniest Moon...probably not, this time The most motherly of Moons opposes the sternest and most fatherly of Suns, if it was only just that. This Full Moon eclipse, the first of 2020, will occur at 20°00’ Cancer (antisicion 10° Gemini), only hours before the Uranus station and two days prior the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn and only 2°46’ away from it. This Lunar Eclipse mirrors the Solar Eclipse at 20° Cancer which occurred in July 2018. Does that ring any bells with anyone? This Lunar Eclipse will be visible in any location where the Moon is above the horizon[...]

    URANUS STATIONS DIRECT ON 10th JANUARY 2020 (GMT)

    and the unexpected becomes manifest…. Uranus ends his yearly, five-month retrograde period at 2°39’ Taurus (antiscion 27°21’ Leo) on the 10th January, only a few hours after the Lunar Eclipse. So, what might we expect by taking Uranus at face-value in Taurus now that it is about to move direct once more? On a mundane level, the disruption and innovation of monetary values as we now know them – Bitcoin or virtual money with less cash around and thus less freedom to spend our money without being controlled electronically. A completely new way of managing farming and food [...]

    SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO JANUARY 12, 2020

    Taking a cue from astrologer Patrick Watson, we could say that Saturn thwarts Pluto just as Pluto hypes up the fear factor inherent to Saturn. In January 2020 there will be the much-announced conjunction between Saturn and Pluto at 22°46’ Capricorn (antiscion 7°14’ Sagittarius), a Cardinal Earth sign. These two planets have been conjoined by parallel of declination for most of 2019 and this aspect will dissolve only in Spring 2020: we’ve already been experiencing this energy over the last year and many astrologers, myself included, believe the parallel conjunction to be much [...]

    MARS ENTERS SAGITTARIUS ON 3rd JANUARY 2020

    …and it’s time to take that leap of faith After just over six weeks in the sign of Scorpio, which it rules together with Pluto, and perhaps a little worse for wear, at least from a psychological point of view, Mars takes on the clothes of the philosopher (and sometimes as the self-righteous prig) as he enters the optimistic, truth-loving sign of Sagittarius where he will stay until the 16th of February when he enters Capricorn. Here in Sagittarius he will be able to express his energy in a more open way with less emphasis on the psychological battle field. On a global level we [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS CAPRICORN ON 29th DECEMBER 2019

    ….a suddenly serious mood On the 29th of December an out-of-bounds (23rd December-11th January 2020) Mercury barges out of Sagittarius with more than the usual bluntness and awkwardness that often characterises his sojourn there and lands in Capricorn. After fun-loving Sagittarius this will certainly hit him with force, dampening his mood and deepening his thoughts and encouraging all of us to think, plan and talk in a much more serious fashion. Mercury in Capricorn is a serious, sensible version of Mercury, very determined and with great concentration which will serve us well as we[...]

    VENUS ENTERS AQUARIUS ON 20TH DECEMBER 2019

    Just in time for the festive season, and less than 24 hours before the Winter solstice, Venus enters the cool, collected and independent sign of Aquarius. In this sign Venus wants the liberty to come and go as it pleases but this doesn’t necessarily mean unfaithfulness, just that equal rights and a seemingly no-strings-attached attitude need to be maintained for relationships to function. It’s the Venus placement par excellence for bed-buddies in a mix-and-match of friends becoming lovers and vice versa since Venus here is rather emotionally distant and has an attitude for open and [...]

    FULL MOON IN GEMINI DECEMBER 12th  2019 (GMT)

    …focus is what we need There will be a Full Moon at 19°51’ Gemini on the 12th of December (antiscion 10° 08’ Cancer). As we all know, full moons are when matters that have been simmering under the surface emerge to be dealt with. This lunation occurs on the 3rd-9th house axis (Gemini-Sagittarius) in traditional astrology; how I think vs how they think, short trips vs long journeys, reason vs intuition etc. Both signs are concerned with gathering and spreading knowledge as well as education and travel. This is a restless, mentally active Full Moon, the last plenilune of this year,[...]

    JUPITER ENTERS THE SIGN OF CAPRICORN ON 2ND DECEMBER 2019

    “Courage is knowing what not to fear.” Plato The planet of expansion enters the sign of restriction and width becomes once more proportionate to height. After a whole year of jubilance in its own sign of Sagittarius, Jupiter now meets the real world where growth and magnificence have little or no space or are at best held under tight control. Needless to say, Jupiter is in its fall in Capricorn. The transit will begin on 2nd December 2019 and end on 19th December 2020, Jupiter and Saturn will then be conjoined at 0° Aquarius on 21st December (an event happening approximately [...]
