    There will be a full Moon and a total lunar eclipse at 4° 40’ Aries on the 27th September at 7.50 p.m PDT and 2.50 a.m. GMT. This is the last eclipse of this year and the fourth of four total lunar eclipses in a row, a rare event known as a tetrad. This is also the second Super Full Moon in a row and the closet to the earth. According to Bernadette Brady, renowned astrologer, the effects of lunar eclipses are more internal and emotional, urging us to ponder the problems of life etc. Eclipses are spotlights that shine on our life-path, they catch you in mid-action illuminating that area of[...]

    Saturn in now firmly in Sagittarius where it will remain until 2017. Sagittarius is the sign of optimism and faith, its ruling planet is Jupiter, the planet of width, he who pushes us to go further, be it mentally or physically. This is the sign of the traveller, the one who loves other cultures and faiths, the seeker of the truth. Saturn is the planet of depth, the one who wants to limit and restrict, so as you can see they aren’t really easy bed-mates thus we have to find a compromise for them to work well together in our chart. Therefore, the next 2.5 years might cause a spiritual [...]

    PLANETARY HOURS

    September 19, 2015

    I wanted to discuss something a little different from the planetary aspects that I usually write about in this blog. I want to talk about the ancient system of the planetary hours in which one of the seven traditional planets (those visible to the naked eye) is given rulership not only over each day but also over parts of each day. It is thought to have roots ancient Babylonian astrology and is certainly the origin of the seven-day week and the names of the days as used in English and other languages. The traditional planets in astrology are: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, sun, Venus, Mercury and [...]

    Finding your faith in something bigger, believing that the best has yet to come at its most positive! During this transit we might be searching for “signs” and experiences that confirm our own (idea) of spirituality and one way to achieve this would certainly be through meditation since the veil between worlds will undoubtedly be very thin now. However, we must learn to discern fact from fantasy and this may be difficult during the 5-6 days (prior and post) surrounding the exactness (7° of each sign) of the aspect which occurs in Europe on 16th September this year. This is not a period [...]

    New Moons are said to bring new beginnings to the part of our natal chart (house) where they fall and even more so if they make a conjunction (1-2° orb) or an opposition to a planet, in this case, in either Virgo or Pisces. Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phase Astrology”1 calls this New Moon in Virgo the “Maiden’s Moon” and since we need to find solace in solitude this is an excellent moment to perform work of a repetitive, solitary type that allows your mind to wander into a meditative space whilst the work itself becomes just a background rhythm. The concomitant Solar Eclipse [...]

    Mercury ingresses the sign of Libra on August 28th 2015 and the same day it enters its shadow period, that is, it is moving forward through the degrees of Libra that it will backtrack over during the retrograde movement. Although the actual retrograde period itself goes from 17th September 2015 (15°50’) to 9th October 2015 (0°54’) its shadow period terminates on the 24th October 2015. I believe that the shadow period is as important as the actual retrograde period itself. During the whole period therefore it means that we will have the opportunity to re-think any ideas or decisions we [...]

    This Saturday there will be a full Moon in Pisces. In the Western world we tend to indulge ourselves in feeling-based activities on full Moon days but in Tibetan Buddhist monastic tradition this is a day devoted to the purification of “negative” karma during which people are encouraged to indulge less, thus creating space to contemplate the true nature of reality[1]. In traditional astrology the Pisces Full Moon is connected to the 12-6th house axis and the Pisces/Virgo opposition, in short; in the 12th house our energy goes with the flow whilst in the 6th house we arrange our energy ie.:[...]

    JUPITER IN THE HOUSES

    August 19, 2015

    So now that Jupiter is firmly into the sign of Virgo we might like to have an idea of what a Jupiter transit could mean in each of the houses. Bear in mind that Jupiter will still have the Virgo flavour to it whatever house, planet or angle it is transiting in your chart. Where Jupiter transits you find that life flows easily and that your plans have a better chance of being successful. Since Jupiter is the planet of growth and enlargement this can also make you put on weight especially if aspects to your natal Sun are also involved. Its transit also opens our mind and our consciousness to [...]
