    VENUS ENTERS LIBRA 29 SEPTEMBER 2022

    VENUS ENTERS LIBRA Need to find a balance in our relationships…. Venus enters one of its home signs on 29 September and will remain there until 23 October. Some keywords for Libra might be: impartial, balanced, diplomatic, charming, tasteful, indecisive, flirtatious, peaceable and compromising. Venus takes on a more rational stance in Airy Libra with peace and harmony being of utmost importance as it endeavours to keep an even keel (Taurus, its other home sign is a much more sensual placement). In Libra, Venus tends towards compromise and harmony in relationships but it also has [...]

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT ON 2 OCTOBER 2022

    MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT  Let’s move forward continuing to discern the useful from the useless… After a period of retrograde motion which started in the Air sign of Libra and ends in the Earth sign of Virgo, Mercury stops in his tracks at 24°11’ Virgo (antiscion 5°49’ Aries) before picking up speed and moving forward. Mercury will be stationing in an applying trine to Pluto (which also goes direct on the 8th of October at 26°07’ Capricorn) and in a separating opposition to retrograde Neptune at 23°36’ Pisces, Neptune R and Pluto R are in a sextile aspect to each other.[...]

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN LIBRA 09-10 SEPTEMBER 2022

    MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN LIBRA Rethinking thoughts… Mercury stations retrograde at 08°55’ Libra (antisicion 21°05’ Pisces) to station direct at 21°05’ Virgo on 2 October. In the sign of Libra, Mercury finds its more tactful side, eager to please (or rather eager not to have to discuss/argue) it is at its complacent best here. A master of playing with words but even when critical never seems to be offensive. On the downside, Mercury in Libra finds it difficult to reach a conclusion to any matter on hand. Fearful of what others might say or think, eager to please and[...]

    VENUS ENTERS VIRGO 4-5 SEPTEMBER 2022

    VENUS ENTERS VIRGO Miss Modesty Venus in Virgo intellectualises love and intimacy and is also pretty good at maths when it comes to managing finances so keeping a check on over-spending could be a welcome (and necessary for some of us) break after the Leo extravagance. This rationalisation or intellectualisation of what we most treasure takes away something from our intrinsic affectional make-up thus making us appear “cold”, irritable and highly strung. Virgo needs to express love in a practical way so how about cooking something delicious for our loved ones or treating [...]

    NEW MOON IN VIRGO 27 AUGUST 2022

    NEW MOON IN VIRGO  the devil is in the details but so is salvation There will be a New Moon at 4°03’ Virgo (antiscion 25°57’ Aries) on the 27th of this month. Virgo Moons want to get things done in the most practical and neatest way, that could be one of the reasons that they are prone to worry…not meeting their own (high) standards. The dispositor of this New Moon is Mercury in fair-play Libra, first applying a trine to Mars in Gemini and then applying an opposition to Jupiter R in Aries, people-pleasing (probably by trying to say the right thing) seems to be big on the [...]

    MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA 25-26 AUGUST 2022

    MERCURY ENTERS LIBRA “That's the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you're never wrong.”  C. Buckle In the sign of Libra, Mercury finds its more tactful side, eager to please (or rather eager not to have to discuss/argue) it is at its complacent best here. A master of playing with words but even when critical never seems to be offensive. On the downside, Mercury in Libra finds it difficult to reach a conclusion to any matter on hand. Fearful of what others might say or think, eager to please and seemingly wanting to do the best for both sides yet with the nagging [...]

    URANUS STATIONS RETROGRADE ON 24 AUGUST 2022

    URANUS STATIONS RETROGRADE …… can we cope with surprises? Uranus starts his yearly, five-month retrograde period at 18°55’ Taurus on 24 August (antiscion 11°05’ Leo). Furthermore, Uranus and the North Lunar Node will be within a 1-degree orb of parallel of declination from 14th July to 28th September. Uranus has been at 18° Taurus since 8th July and due to its retrograde station (24th August) it will remain on this degree until the 12th of October. When planets station, they usually manifest all their power. At the moment of the station, Uranus and Venus will be parallel[...]

    MARS IN GEMINI 20 AUGUST 2022 

    IN FOR THE LONG HAUL - MARS IN GEMINI 20 AUGUST 2022 mental overdrive…. Mars will enter Gemini on the 20th of August and will remain there, due to its retrograde period, until March 2023, that is 7 whole months!! What is really unusual about this year’s upcoming transit of Mars in Gemini though is the length of the planet’s continuous stay in this sign: 217 days, from 20 August 2022 to 25 March 2023! Its retrograde period will start on 31 October at 25°36’ Gemini and end on 13 January 2023 at 8°07’, with the planet being out of bounds (OOB) from 25 October 2022 to 3 May [...]

    VENUS ENTERS LEO 11 AUGUST 2022

    VENUS ENTERS LEO Venus, the planet of values, love, and finances, enters the sign of Leo on the 11th of August. In Leo, Venus feels courted and pampered (after all Leo is the King and she is the Goddess!), she hates to be ignored and seeks attention, which isn’t difficult for her since she adds her own talents to Leo’s natural penchant for passion, generosity and warmth towards others. Venus rules the sign of Taurus (her more practical side involving finances and comforts in general) and Libra (love, harmony and relationships) so you should look not only to the house placement of [...]
