Jupiter in Sagittarius: Igniting Fresh Meaning & Purpose in Our Lives!

/
As Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th for the first time since 2007, the global scene has rarely been in such a state of ‘high tension’. So it is with great interest I consider the implications of the year ahead into 2019, as Jupiter’s ‘job’ is to expand and enlarge the theme of the sign he triggers, and Sagittarius is all about the nature of TRUTH & BELIEFS.

The next Venus Star Loop - Scorpio, Leo, Gemini
 - October 2018 - June 2020

The next 584 day, 19 mth, 1.6 year synodic* cycle, Venus’ next round of the Sun, begins as the current one ends with the interior retrograde conjunction at 3°06’ Scorpio on 26th October UTC. It then peaks midpoint in its cycle at 21° Leo  on Aug 14th,  2019 at the direct exterior conjunction, before Venus swings back down to earth for the next end and begining at 14° Gemini on June 4th, 2020 for the next retrograde interior conjunction. . In her never ending 5 pointed cycle, Venus, who acts somewhat like a Cosmic Bee, is set to pollinate her next Star points, her inner and outer conjunctions with the Sun, inner being the retrograde conjunctions with the Sun, and outer being when she transits on the other side of the Sun, opposite to Earth.

What is your Moon Phase?

/
The Moon Phase that you were born under says a great deal about the dynamic of your life, the general energetic direction with which you approach things and the script that you are working with. Although seemingly a small thing, it often represents a thread which can permeate your entire life, and is often backed up by other aspects and themes in the natal chart.

“Freedom From Attachment”- Mars square Uranus and the Fixed Cross

/
The synchronization between the arrival of revolutionary Uranus into Taurus for the first time since 1934 plus Mars into Aquarius on May 16th triggered an unprecedented new era in our collective evolutionary process. Sky God Uranus is famous for his maverick rule breaking eccentricities

The Sacred Dance of Venus and Mars continues

/
The dance that the celestial lovers create in the sky mirrors our relationship patterns. This interplay also reflects their roles as key archetypes of feminine and masculine energy.The fact that Venus and Mars are on opposite sides of the Earth in the solar system mirrors their astrological rulership as opposing signs of the zodiac. They are also opposing forces in physics in their association as metals copper and iron. In every aspect of their relationship they work in unison, always as a pair of opposites.

ReView - Uranus in Aries - March 11th 2011- May 15th 2018

/
A little life Review! Saying bye-bye To Aries in Uranus As one door surely opens on May 15th…The Uranus in Taurus ingress…another door closes!Here are some thoughts for you during the lingering last days of the cyclonic, electrifying wild and crazy ride offered up to us by the once-every-eighty-four-year transit of Uranus in Aries. It’s always good to reflect and reconsider upon what’s ending as we turn our gaze forward. Uranus is the energy of the unpredictable, the dramatic, bringing quick startling changes. The Uranus ingress took place in March 2011. Recall these events?

Chiron in Aries - April 2018 - April 2027

/
On April 17th 2018, at approximately 9.30am GMT Chiron moves from the ethereal and indefinite waters of Pisces, to begin a new Astrological Cycle in the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries, where it will remain until April 2027. Taking Fifty years to complete a full cycle of the horoscope, Chiron, maverick wanderer of our solar system, has been identified since his discovery with the archetype of the wounded healer.

Marching Orders: Mars in Capricorn (17 March – 16 May, 2018)

/
Traditional astrology considers Mars to be exalted in Capricorn, where his assertiveness and aggression can be put to use for society. Mars in Capricorn can help build institutions, but he can also storm the fortresses and initiate change. This year, Mars will be quite busy in the sign of the mountain goat, meeting with Capricorn’s ruler Saturn then going on to conjoin Pluto, in addition to other aspects he’ll be making.

"Rage Against The Dying Of The Light" Chiron Returns - Part I

/
The Chiron Return happens to us all at the age of around fifty, a deeply emotional transit where we find ourselves standing at the threshold between life and death, a liminal place between the worlds. It is there that we are faced with the spectral shades of all that has gone before, and witness them as they blend and dance, merge and become indistinct in the face of the enveloping darkness of the unknown that lies ahead. Although it is widely accepted that 'nothing is certain, apart from death & taxes', like Janus, the "Chironian" looks both forwards and back,

The Fractal Nature of Astrology with the Venus Star

/
As seekers of astrological wisdom we are often confronted by the bigger questions of why does astrology work. We know it works, we see it working in our lives and in our clients lives, in the world around us and in so many varied and profoundly interesting ways, yet it is hard to define exactly how or why it works, as not one single explanation will ever suffice. Something that has helped enlighten my journey of astrological understanding, of why the patterns and cycles of the planets continue to coincide with our lives, is the understanding of astrology as a dynamic fractal like system, set off at birth with its own unique formula and conditions, that then continues to unfurl and unfold as a never ending fractal like pattern of growth.

Accomplished Wisdom ~ Saturn in Capricorn

/
Time Lord Saturn is about to leave forward-thinking, risk-taking, hopeful Sagittarius, and move into its sombre and statuesque home sign of Capricorn, on the 20th of Dec. Stately Saturn’s passage is only one day before the North’s Winter Solstice, when the Sun will also follow Saturn into the Zodiac’s 10th sign of great accomplishment: the Capricorn Sea Goat.

The Arrow Aims High: Mars in Sagittarius 26 January to 17 March 2018

/
Every two years, Mars, the Cosmic Warrior, spends about six weeks in the sign the archer, Sagittarius. Whether he is waging a holy war, advocating for a social or political philosophy, or fighting for a just cause, Mars gets riled up in Jupiter’s home sign. Sagittarius is a Fire sign that isn’t known for reserve and caution, and that suits Mars just fine.

NEPTUNE STATIONS DIRECT - OUT OF CHAOS EMERGES CLARITY

/
King of the oceans, the Roman Neptune (Greek Poseidon) rules primarily the seas and all other waterways, earthquakes, and horses. Water shape shifts; it flows; such fluidity helps us all adjust, fill, buoy or, more negatively, drown. Ergo, Neptune’s not exactly a black and white kinda energy… Often, water correlates to mood, intuition, sensitivity, and empathy. Represented by the ebb and flow of the ocean’s waves as the tide rises and recedes, Neptune’s indicative of a collectively eternal situation that calls for a certain amount of surrender in order to go with the natural flow…

Super Blue Blood Lunar Eclipse in Leo 11°37’- January 31st!

/
When there are two Full Moons in the same calendar month, the second is called a ‘Blue Moon’. This Full ‘Blue Moon’ in dramatic Leo, on January 31st, is also a ‘Super Moon’, which happens when the Moon is closest to the Earth as Luna culminates (making this the second and last Super Moon of 2018). As a Super Moon* it also means tides will be strong again, with flooding, earthquakes and tsunami alerts all possible. Perhaps even more so in some areas**, as this second January Full Moon is also a spectacular Lunar Eclipse. And because it is also a total Lunar Eclipse – when the eclipsed Moon turns a light-refracting deep copper-red – it is therefore known as a ‘Blood Moon’. Excited yet? It’s a humdinger!

Jovial Houseguest: Mars in Scorpio

/
Mars returns to his second home on 9 December, and finds his friend Jupiter in the house. Last time Mars was in Scorpio, in early 2016, he had the place to himself – no doubt a relief after hosting Saturn for a couple of years earlier in the decade. Mars may have limited tolerance for Jupiter’s upbeat and outgoing attitude, but in the sign of the scorpion even Jupiter is inclined to tone it down a bit and focus on serious matters.

Birthing the New Reality - Saturn at Galactic Centre

/
Saturn at the Galactic Centre during 2017 makes the times we are living in ever more more interesting. As a relatively new area of exploration and a new concept for astrologers, after exploring the images and the symbols of such a potent energy and planets in this area in the past, I can certainly see merit in using The Galactic Centre as a representation of not only being pulled into something larger than life, but also as a conduit to a great symbol of a most creative force in that exists in oneself and in our collective destiny.

Venus, the Descent/Ascent of Inanna and the 7 Gates

After her maximum elongation from the Sun, post retrograde, as a morning star , Venus begins the next stage of her evolutionary cycle. From the emergent phase of youth, and the stability of her maximum elongation,

Iron Fist Velvet Glove: Mars in Libra OCT 22 - Dec 9

/
The Cosmic Warrior puts on his dress uniform for six weeks, minding his manners and following protocol as he marches through Venus’ second home. Libran harmony is inimical to the more impulsive Mars, and in this sign he can have difficulty expressing himself directly. Yet with Venus in mutual reception with him for much of the time he’s in the sign of the scales (from 7 November to 1 December), it’s possible that this will be a productive time – bargaining and negotiations with a hint of force, diplomacy from a place of power... an iron fist in a velvet glove?

Jupiter in Scorpio - Exploring the mysteries - Oct 10 2017 - Nov 8 2018

/
Jupiter, defined by learning and expansion, is like the adjective `big’ when it transits a sign. This suggests that the spotlight will be on ``big’ transformation, the core Scorpio issue, for the next twelve months. Jupiter spends approximately one year per sign, as it takes twelve years to make a complete orbit around the sun. Each of us have a Jupiter return year every twelve years-a year of new growth, risk-taking and exploration.
