  • FULL MOON IN SAGITTARIUS ON 21ST MAY 2016 (GMT)

    Possibly a rather fractious Moon…… There will be a full Moon at 1°14’ of Sagittarius, a mutable Fire sign on the 21st of May. The Sagittarius Moon is usually a jovial, quest-searching entity that desires, above all, truth and something to believe in. It also loves freedom and is easily motivated. This Full Moon falls on the 9th-3rd axis of the traditional horoscope. It’s about wisdom vs knowledge, intuition vs reason, long vs short journeys, morality vs amorality etc. If you have planets or angles at 1-2° of the mutable signs of Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces then this [...]

    Anyone else?

    May 8, 2016
    Anyone else?

    Over the last few weeks I’ve met quite a variety of people who’ve declared that they’re just not willing to tolerate BS in their life anymore (I’m one of them too). I think that with five out of ten planets now in retrograde motion this is a wonderful opportunity that the Universe (or God) is giving us to delve deep down inside ourselves and discover what is working and what is not in our life. Also with Jupiter about to go direct tomorrow this seems like the right time to get rid of the wrong things/people in our lives once and for all. Are you feeling this too?  Care to [...]

    JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT ON 9TH MAY 2016

    It’s now time to take that leap of faith…… Jupiter, or Zeus as the ancient Greeks knew him, was the King of the Olympian gods. He was omniscient; knowing and seeing everything as well as dispensing good and evil not only in the Heavens but also among the mortals on the Earth. Although married to a very jealous spouse (Hera) he managed nevertheless to have many extra-marital affairs with goddesses and mortals alike thus producing an incredible number of children who he always left to be raised by others. So we associate Jupiter with growth, expansion and luck which, if exaggerated, [...]

    NEW MOON IN TAURUS 6TH MAY 2016

    ….be honest….create firm foundations It’s time to set your intentions for the New Moon at 16°41 Taurus that will occur on the 6th of May. The Moon is exalted in this Venus-ruled, Fixed Earth sign. It is the 3rd in a row of super New Moons, a time when the Moon is at its nearest orbit to our planet, so expect emotional ebbs and flows to be intensified together with tides and earth movements. The New Moon falls on the 2-8th axis of the traditional zodiac (Taurus-Scorpio) which involves matters such as security vs temptation, calm vs crisis, sex vs taboos etc. It is significant [...]

    SLOW AND STEADY WHEN MERCURY RIDES THE BULL….

    ….and more so when he rides it backwards! Mercury stations retrograde in Taurus on 28th April 2016. 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 will station retrograde at 23°26’ on the 28th of April and turn direct at 14°20’ [...]

    FULL MOON IN SCORPIO ON APRIL 22ND 2016 (GMT)

    On April 22nd there will be a Full Moon at 2°03’ in the Fixed, Water sign of Scorpio. 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 (sex, joint finances, taxes, occult, psyche) and the sign of Scorpio. The axis involved is the 2nd-8th and involves questions [...]

    LET’S HAVE SOME FUN

    On Sunday 17th April we’ll have a national referendum here in Italy to decide whether we want to cancel the law governing the Off Shore Oil Drilling licences. I thought it would be interesting to pull up the national chart for Italy and compare it to the transits on Sunday evening when the polls will be closed. For those of you who are not familiar with the houses in mundane astrology, here’s a quick guide: The origins of the country The wealth of the country Education and propaganda The population Culture and collective celebrations The workers The neighbouring [...]

    SCORPIO DIVES DEEPER AND HE COULD SEETHE....MARS AND PLUTO RETROGRADE ON 17TH APRIL 2016

    The two rulers of Scorpio, Mars the traditional ruler and Pluto the modern one, both station retrograde on the same day this year. Whilst Pluto has a yearly retrograde season, Mars only goes retrograde once every two years so it’s quite an event on its own but this time it also coincides with the beginning of the Pluto retrograde too. Mars will stop in his tracks at 8°54’ Sagittarius backtracking to enter Scorpio (his own sign) on the 28th of May, continuing his journey in reverse mode until he stations direct at 23°03’ Scorpio on the 29th June. Mars is energy at its purest [...]

    I’m posting a link to one of my fellow astrologers’ websites, her name is Faith Thomas of InsightAstrology and she’s been so kind and generous as to publish one of my more recent articles about Secondary Progressions. Faith is a very gifted self-taught astrologer in the evolutionary tradition with a particular interest in the soul growth potential of relationships, outer planet transits and the mysterious and sometimes painful ways of Pluto. Check out her site, it's well worth the visit. http://www.insightastrology.net/understand/secondary-progressions/ As astrologers we have [...]

    NEW MOON IN ARIES 7TH APRIL 2016

          There will be a New Moon at 18°04’ of Aries, a Cardinal, Fire sign on the 7th of April. New Moons are great times to set your intentions about new projects to undertake in the month to come so try to take some quiet time to think about what you would like or need to change in the matters of the house where the New Moon takes place in your chart. This New Moon is the second of six super Moons since it is at its perigee (its nearest point to the Earth) and thus enhancing its effect on tides, earth movements and psyches. It is also supercharged by being [...]
