• …… how do I live with instability in this area of my life? Uranus starts his yearly, five-month retrograde period at 24°30’ Aries on the 29th of July. He will end this period at 20°33’ Aries on the 28th of December this year. Uranus has an 84-year orbit and spends roughly 7 years in each sign. After his discovery in 1781 by an amateur astronomer named William Herschel he was given joint ruler-ship of the sign of Aquarius together with its traditional zodiacal ruler Saturn. In the myth Ouranus was the married to Gaia (the Earth), he fathered many children with her but found [...]

      ……..if it’s push and pull between home and work then Uranus could be the light-bulb solution On July 19th there will be a Full Moon at 27°40’ Capricorn, a Cardinal Earth sign and the sign of the Moon’s detriment where it is at least at ease. This Full Moon falls on the traditional 10th-4th axis, work vs home, public vs private, one parent vs another, rigidity vs flexibility etc. Full Moons are peak energy times, “now or never” moments regarding any projects we have initiated or intentions set at the preceding New Moon fourteen days ago. In his book “Moon [...]

    ……planetary rendezvous in Cancer and heads up for spill-over! On the 4th of July there will be a New Moon at 12°54’ in the sign of Cancer. New Moons are the moment we set our intentions for the month ahead regarding the house where the New Moon falls in our chart but we now have four of the ten planets transiting in this sign making it a very emotionally energetic period particularly for the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Raven Kaldera in his book “Moon Phases” calls this the “Daughter’s Moon” and likens it to the myth of Demeter and her [...]

    ….and life suddenly gets a jump start Mars turns direct on 29th June at 23°03’ Scorpio after a retrograde period lasting two and a half months and particularly interested here are those with planets or angles at or near this degree in the fixed signs of Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo. Let’s also make a mention to 7° Aquarius which is the antiscion point of 23° Scorpio and also a very sensitive point. Mars has been more or less at this degree since mid-June and will stick around at the same degree well into the first half of July….a very long period if you’re affected by [...]

    …..the second Full Moon in a month on the same zodiacal axis (Sagittarius-Gemini) This is rather a rare event and thus more significant than a Blue Moon which involves either 2 Full Moons in a month or 4 Full Moons in a season. It will occur at 29°33’ of Sagittarius…29° of any sign is considered as a “threshold” point in some way (it's also known as the Anaretic degree). It often represents decision-making problems, wavering, or jumping into situations without thinking twice. The 29th degree is the last degree of the zodiac sign, and there can be a true feeling of urgency [...]

    ….and almost immediately squares Saturn (also retrograde) in Sagittarius Neptune starts his yearly 5-month long retrograde season at 12°02’ in his home sign of Pisces where he has been transiting since 2011-2012, he will station direct once again at 9°14’ Pisces on 18th November this year. During the retrograde period Neptune will square Saturn in Sagittarius again twice this year, they already made a square aspect at 7°02’ on 26th November 2015. Therefore the second square of these planets when both of them are retrograde is on 17th June at 12°02’, only a few days after [...]

    A balancing act may be needed….. There will be a New Moon at 14°53’ of the mutable Air sign of Gemini on the 5th of June. This is a very inquisitive, intellectual Moon, hard to pin down emotionally due to its constantly changing feelings caused by its tendency to over-rationalise everything. Under pressure this Moon is not very reliable and commitment issues may surface. New Moons are times when we are invited to set our intentions for the month to come regarding that area of our life which the Moon is illuminating in this lunar phase. In his book “Moon Phase Astrology”, [...]

    After the quest for truth begins the real psychological depth of this retrograde period… Mars has been in retrograde motion in the Fire sign of Sagittarius since the 17th of April now, on May 28th , he enters one of his own signs and the most profound one at that. Retrograde periods for Mars occur once every two years and since he can be a trouble maker for many whilst in direct motion he could reveal himself to be even so more during his retrograde season. You may have been feeling depleted energetically during this last six weeks or so as you get used to the deeper psychological [...]

    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

    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 [...]
