NOVEMBER 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


Jupiter now established in Scorpio for the coming year brings out passions in peoples’ knee jerk response.

The benefits of balance and predominantly rational thinking will be subsumed under the influence of the emotions. In positive mode, it Jupiter in Scorpio is good however for investigation and is especially progressive in medicine and investigation into the truth. Intense need for forensic investigation will predominate. Scandals and revelations may well be unearthed over the coming year that can be very decisive and difficult in their implications for people and organisations.

The Harvey Weinstein scandal/allegations are rather typical of this energy, especially as Scorpio is very connected to sexuality.

Passions politically and a desire for revenge may also dominate. In other words diplomacy (a Libra domain) will not be favoured necessarily, as much as an active reaction from a visceral, gut level that could be dangerous on an international level. Pluto rules Scorpio and Pluto of course is directly linked to huge power (Plutonium).

Jupiter in Scorpio can, when in negative mode, unleash dangerous, emotionally charged responses.

The world is developing in a direction that is more deeply rooted in nationalism and protectionism, as a direct reaction to what is deemed to be the downside of globalisation. The accepted concept of global shared power and international cooperation and diminished boundaries was very strong from when Pluto was in the internationally principled sign of Sagittarius (late 90’s-2009), but has been gradually undermined as nationalism/independence came on the rise, as Pluto shifted for the long haul into Capricorn (far more conservative, reactionary and self protective) in late 2009 and Uranus moved into Aries in 2010/11… Uranus (a rebellious need for change) in Aries (a need for independence and strong dislike of interdependence and quite politically extreme and a rejecting of the past) has been very much underlining the movements for separatism. This influence continues till March 2019. Jupiter now in intense Scorpio, will further this knee-jerk desire to fulfil emotional desires.

Right wing instincts are for protectionist nationalism, (Capricorn) whilst more left wing/liberal stances seem to favour internationalism and interdependence (Sagittarius)

Trump is now freed from the once every 30 year constraints and karmic learning curve of Saturn’s influence (strongly affecting his Moon and Sun over the last few months) This will now unleash a more uninhibited mood in his behaviour, but he has learnt a lot about the constraints of his position, which may create a reactive and rather bitter response, which will not be so inhibited by the powers of others around him now, especially between the 18th-20th, when Mars conjuncts his Jupiter. But he could also become master of his own downfall, as constraints are diminished or ignored. Jupiter squares Trump’s natal Pluto in late November, which is also very indicative of misuse of power and coercion, where ego is far more powerful than wisdom and which can feel very dangerously threatening to others who will likely respond ruthlessly too.

After the 18th of November there is a tricky period globally, when Mars squares up to Pluto, which can be very indicative of the use of ruthless, forceful and explosive power and then in late November/early December, Mars will oppose Uranus, which is eruptive geophysically. (Nature may not be kind, but why should it be?  We certainly have not on the whole been kind to it)….

 Also socio-politically, it is risky as impulse, irrational reactions are underlined..

Positively, for most of the month, especially in the first half, Saturn will trine up to Uranus.

This builds a bridge between the old (Saturn) and the new (Uranus). The essential need for change is not inimical to the past; and a bridge can be crossed between an age that is dying and the age that needs to come into birth. The conservative and the radical can find common ground somehow.

It is potentially positive for moves to favour environmental progress and can also possibly bring compromise politically re international independence versus international cooperation.  Optimism has to be kept.

The Moon is full on the 4th at the 12th degree of Taurus. A time of unconscious forces erupting that are somewhat untamed and truths will out, whilst the Moon is new on the 18th at the 27th degree of Scorpio. Initiation of the new and the determined is appropriate.


ARIES

I am afraid there is no room to be superficial this month.  You need to deal with fundamental issues, but after the 5th, all of you will find communications very easy and travel and study issues are particularly well highlighted.  Your mind is very much more big picture in its thinking and wise.

Before the 7th, all born after April 10th will find that love and affection is more powerful and alive.  Harmony and charm prevail. 
After the 7th, things get a little bit more intense and private.

Mars in your opposite sign of Libra currently, is bringing for all born March 26th to April 15th the potential for some challenge from others.  People are not pushovers and it is important that you are not as powerfully assertive as you can be.  Others will not tolerate it, even those who are usually pussycats.

Jupiter now in Scorpio is forcing many of you to be more profound in your dealings and connections with others and complex money issues are flagged up in a positive way. 

Saturn is constructive for those born April 14th to 17th.  Duty and obligation is met happily.  Your maturity is respected and good foundations are being built, particularly with legal, academic and long distance issues. 

Still, Uranus is bringing for those born April 14th to 17th a feeling of change and restlessness that will not be completed until April 2018.  Hold on tight and don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. This is ultimately liberating.

Pluto also continues to challenge the lives, in some contexts, of those born April 6th to 8th.  Conflicts within and without are connected to finding your true purpose, identity and independence.  Be conscious of it and don’t abuse power or indeed let others do the same to you.  Draw boundaries.


TAURUS

Powerful influences from your opposite sign of Scorpio this month does emphasise very important relationship issues.

Before the 5th, for all born after May 12th, communications with others will be intense but constructive and after the 7th, for all of you, there is a feeling of the power of love, affection and harmony being dominate, thanks to Venus.

Jupiter, now in your opposite sign is bringing for all born April 25th to May 2nd a tendency to be extravagant and confident, especially in relationships.  Beware however of putting over-confidence in people, or letting them influence you too much towards indulgence, but a bit of caution, good times roll, as does some happy expansion. 

Neptune continues to inspire those born around May 1st to 3rd.  Ideals are strong and sensitivity, creativity and empathy are underscored.  Your emotions will dominate and good friends are empathetic and caring and your ability to be there to help others should not be underestimated.  Your psychic powers are also more active, particularly on and after the 22nd of the month. 

Pluto is continuing his very long slow trine of the Suns of those born May 7th to 9th,. This is very constructive and empowering for you, bringing a feeling of destiny and allowing you to find a sense of purpose connected to long distance issues, travel, academic issues and your insight and powers are definitely at work now in a very constructive way. 

The full Moon on the 4th falls on the Suns of those born around May 2nd- 4th, suggesting for this group, a period of some confrontations with truths and potential realisations that certain chapters need to close.


GEMINI

Emphasis moves away from work and routine and very much to relationships after the 5th for you all.  Communications with others can be very enhancing as are connections with others and a sense of articulate wisdom from you to others and visa-versa is in the air.

Before the 7th, all born after June 12th have fun, romance, creativity, both literal and metaphorical, very underlined.  It’s party time and dealings with offspring and the arts are successful and Cupid maybe on your case. 

Saturn, however, is bringing for all born June 16th to 19th, a challenge, possibly from other people.  Blocks , restrictions and limitations are haunting you, as is a bit of negativity of thought.  This is a time for maturity and focus and to accept reality checks and to build new foundations based on truth and facts.  Other people are either teachers or blocking you unnecessarily.  You have to decide which and deal with them accordingly.  Take it easy.  Look after the body and have patience, but hard work does pay off, as does being very grounded.

However, for this same group, Uranus is really helping you understand how you need to liberate yourself from problems that are not necessary.  There are two sorts of people in your life now; those who are awakening and enlightening you and catalysts for change and those who are blocking you and you need to focus on the former. 

For those born around June 1st to 3rd, Neptune is causing some confusion and rose coloured spectacles being donned, potentially about work or career.  Be sure that you check everything out for its validity.  Smoke and mirrors are in the air, but your emotions are powerful.  Keep grounded.  Communing with nature and arts are a good way of dealing with this transit. 


CANCER

Focus on Scorpio this month, including Jupiter now in that sign is excellent for you.  It really brings a good boost for love life, creativity, the arts and children and offspring issues, noteably before the 5th

Writing and communications skills are seriously underlined for all born after July 14th

After the 7th, all of you are benefiting from Venus enhancing your creative gifts, fertility in general and your sense of love and enjoyment of life. 

However, for all born June 27th to July 18th Mars is bringing a note of caution on the domestic and family front as there are some people who are a little impatient or easily irritated and you yourself may be a little bit like a crab in a china shop.  Impatience and impulse is a danger, causing you to cross swords with others potentially. 

Jupiter, now is Scorpio, is particularly favouring those born June 25th to July 3rd.  He is really bringing luck and growth to your creativity, love life and general ability to make things happen that you wish for.  Opportunities and positivity and invitations abound and ability for living life to the full are yours. 

However, those born June 24th to 27th, are still sensing unpredictable change, as you will be until April 2018, with Uranus creating some disturbances, and insecurities and restlessness, notably on the work front or in terms of your status.  Change is destined to be in the air.  You need to go with the flow and be flexible.  This is a journey that continues for some time.  Watch it and know that it is eventually taking you into a freer, more innovative place that suits you better, despite some insecurity that you feel along the way.

Neptune, however, is very enhancing of the spiritual, creative and emotional positive aspects of your life if born around July 3rd and 4th.  Travel and study is inspiring and anything to do with your dreams or your spiritual sense of journey is happily fulfilling.  Music, the film world and the sea can all prove more significant than usual, notably after the 22nd, when Neptune goes direct. Your empathy and compassion will become even stronger than usual and needs acknowledgement.

Finally Pluto is still opposing the Suns of those born July 9th to 11th.  This long journey of Pluto will be over by the end of the year and it has brought for this group a real feeling that other people have been pitting their wits, in possibly a rather ruthless way, against you and you have been asked to stand up and draw boundaries round unreasonable behaviour and not respond in the same way.  Endings of chapters are in the air but remember Phoenix’s rise out of the ashes.  Sometimes we have to go through the dark to get to a very empowering light. 


LEO

Domestic and home issues dominate the month, but possibly with a self-indulgent theme. 

Those born July 27th to August 4th are now feeling the effects of Jupiter in Scorpio in square aspect to yours.  This does bring potential indulgence and extravagance and possibly a sense of entitlement or over-confidence. However it doesn’t stop you enjoying yourself, but one needs to be a little careful of careless over-the-top behaviour that may prove counterproductive

However, after the 5th, most of you will be aware of an ability to express yourself well and to use communication skills to your advantage, particularly creatively. 

Before the 7th, all born after August 13th, have a certain charm that is effective and you bring affections together with your intellect.   This is particularly good for dealings with siblings.

For all born July 28th to August 18th, there is a sense this month of constructive efforts and constructive communications and the ability to herd cats in terms of your persuasive efforts.

Saturn is also constructive for a short time for those born August 17th to 21st.  He is forcing this group to be very grounded and sensible, loyal and dutiful and that hard work now brings deferred gratification, which is worth working for.  Maturity is necessary. 

Also this same group simultaneously have a feeling of a new start with enthusiasm for change, excitement, innovation and a big picture understanding that takes away from subjectivity and egotism.

So if in this group of Librans, you are particularly growing in wisdom and awareness this month.  Not least about universal or existential issues and issues to do with other countries and legal issues can somehow be liberating. 


VIRGO

Your mind is particularly forensic and sharp in communications even in your quiet times.

Before the 5th, all born after September 14th are right on the money in terms of your insight and communications. This is excellent for writers/journalists. 

After the 22nd all of you will also be benefiting from the ability to speak and write with great charm and love and to combine heart with mind. 

Jupiter in Scorpio is good news for your sign and this month all born August 27th to September 4th will be feeling an extra boost of confidence, joy, happiness and sense of success, with positive optimistic input from self and others, particularly on the domestic front. 

However, those born around September 18th to 21st are feeling the impact of Saturn, as indeed you did last November.  Issues to do with family, real estate or domestic concerns feel blocked, restricted or burdensome.  Duty is in the air, as is obligation. Delays are designed to make you re-think and to exercise your patience.  Do not let anxiety and fears dominate.  There is a reason for this lesson.

Neptune is opposing the Suns still, as he has been on and off for some longs months, of those born September 3rd to 5th.  Be wary of self-deception or deception from other people.  Check out small print.  Ensure you can trust others and that you are not seeing them through rose tinted spectacles.  Escapism and idealism is strong, but being near the sea and having music around you is calming and having empathy and compassion is also underlined, but keep it in proportion. 

Finally, however, Pluto is until the end of this year, and has been for nearly two years, empowering those born September 9th to 11th.  He brings a sense of power and confidence, creatively in love life and empowers your ability to show what you’re made of.  Shyness has been replaced by a belief in you.  Enjoy.


LIBRA

Focus on finances will do you no harm and indeed your ruling planet Venus after the 7th, in your solar second house can bring advantages from such a focus. 

After the 5th, all of you will benefit from enhanced intellect and communication skills and wisdom of thought. 

Mars is in your sign this month, directly impacting all those born September 28th to October 19th.  Extra energy, psychologically, spiritually and physically is yours.  Used constructively it can make you achieve a lot.  However, there is always a danger of tipping over into over-assertiveness or even slightly aggressive behaviour, even in your very charming way.  Positively it gives courage and determination with constructive outcomes.

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is, if anything, enhancing the safety of finances, but it is not directly involved with your Solar sign, by aspect.

Saturn is constructive now, if born October 18th to 21st.  He brings stability, hard work and discipline and maturity to your approach to life, particularly in your thinking and perceptions.  Hard work and duty will pay off.

This is just as well as the same group have Uranus opposing your Suns, which happens only every 84 years and this has been going on since April of this year and is not over until April of next year.  This influence is disruptive.  Other people are unpredictable. You are excitable and impulsive and relationships can create some chaos, but right now Saturn is calming things down and giving you wisdom and balance.

Pluto is also finalising his long journey of challenge to those born October 10th to 12th.  Domestic issues and family issues are challenging.  Struggles have been in the air – deep routed and profound; and this is about your emancipation, liberation and desire to be true to you.  By the end of this year, the final chapter will be evident. Just be conscious of the power of your own inner core at this point. Manage it consciously.


SCORPIO

Your month indeed. 

Before the 5th, all born after November 14th are particularly articulate and insightful, but do listen to the other guy and don’t dominate the conversation.

After the 7th, all of you will benefit from extra charisma and charm as Venus travels through your sign.  Creativity is also inspired, as is love.

Jupiter now is very welcome to your sign for you; and those most benefiting directly this month are those born October 27th to November 4th.  For this group, blessings are in the air, luck, bonuses, confidence, travel and wisdom.  Good times.  Just don’t go over the top.  With some modesty you can really shine and benefit, Good opportunities abound, notably potentially financially. 

Neptune is also extremely inspiring now for those born around November 3rd to 5th.  The creative world, the music world, the film world, the world of nature and spiritual issues can all inspire; and with Jupiter being a simultaneous influence, this can be a very inspiring period, particularly creatively and to do with offspring and idealism in love life.  Your heart centre is strong and in an uplifting way.

Pluto, your powerful significant ruler is in his last lap of his very long transit of empowerment to the Suns of those born around November 9th to 11th.  By now, many of you would have sensed over the last nearly two years a feeling of finding your true strength, courage, insight and purpose.  Your mind is enhanced with more forensic understanding than several years ago and a sense of destiny has been established.
 
The new Moon is in your sign on the 18th affecting all born around that date,  is bringing for them a useful period to initiate the new and to sow seeds for the future.


SAGITTARIUS

It’s a time to shine, notably for all of you after the 5th when Mercury moves into your sign, bringing extra sharp intellect and communication skills, but the danger is that you need to recognise that you should not dominate the conversation and you can learn from others too.

Before the 7th, Venus is bringing for all born after December 12th happiness and progress and benefits from friends and from groups and from leadership skills.  Doors can open in social circles.  Love and friendship can combine. 

Mars is also friendly now towards those born November 27th to December 17th.  He too will be bringing determination, constructive activity and you are able to really organise groups with effective leadership and your work and energies are intelligent and receive admiration.

Saturn however is still in your sign, but you will be happy to know that he leaves and moves into Capricorn on the 20th of next month.  For now however, those affected by Saturn’s imprint are those born December 16th to 19th; and indeed as last May/June, you will be feeling a sense of restriction, block, maybe even some negativity and you need to look after your health because you recognise that you’re not getting any younger.  This is definitely a time of re-think and patience and reality checks, but hard work will pay off, provided you know you are knocking on the right door.

However, and very fortunately, this same group have Uranus inspiring you simultaneously and making you recognise that you are working for a greater freedom for the future.  You are inspired to know that the work that you are doing now is somehow a catalyst for the change and freedom that you crave; and you are seeing the big picture with greater understanding, particularly creatively and in love life, and by April 2018 you will indeed feel a great sense of liberation achieved..

However, Neptune is still rather hauntingly and confusingly affecting those born around December 2nd to 4th.  This has been dogging many of you since April 2016 and is nearly through with his mission; and indeed by next year you will have come out on the other side of the fog, the confusion and uncertainty; and by trusting the trade winds, you will realise it has taken you to the right place, but don’t push the river in the meantime.


CAPRICORN

Friends and groups and goals figure strongly this month. 

Before the 7th, if born after January 11th, there is a need to be a little cautious about being sycophantic to others in order to gain approval, but charms won’t go far wrong, provided you have moderation. 

However, after the 7th, all of you will gain much from friends and working with others. Love comes your way and you give affection and support in a way that is effective and healing for others; and love and friendship can combine.

If born December 26th to January 16th, there is a slight warning that Mars in the square sign of Libra to your sign, there can be some impatience and irritation with or from colleagues.  Don’t be too pushy or ambitious and remember to use your diplomatic skills wherever you can.  Impatience will not help.

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is very positive for your sign and those benefiting this month are those born December 25th to January 2nd.  Once again, friends are particularly favourable to you and lucky and doors open and other people who come into your life can be catalysts for growth and change and your confidence is strong and your leadership skills are underlined.  Bounty is in the air, as is travel.

However, Uranus is still bringing some disruption and uncertainty and a bit of unsettling adrenalin to the lives of those born January 15th to 18th.  This long transit is actually designed to liberate, to take you out of ruts, but possibly some domestic instability can be unnerving.  By April 2018 this will be over and the result will be change, but a simultaneously a certain liberation, even if it has felt a rocky road.

Neptune has been inspiring and continues to be for those born around January 1st to 3rd.  You are in the final chapter of having felt (for a round a year now) inspiration connected to your emotional liberation, your sensitivity and your creativity and also your empathy and compassion has been underlined and it has taken you away for the material to a more spiritual dimension, which has been very positive for your whole being.  This has actually been true since aprox. April 2016.

Finally, Pluto is still, and will be until the end of the year, bringing an intensity of experience to those born January 7th to 9th.  Since March 2016, you have been going through an intense, personal transformation and empowerment; and provided you have haven’t been too ruthless or self-seeking, your destiny has been underscored, but remember you are not the owner of the power.  You are the agent of it.


AQUARIUS

Your personal status is important to you this month, not least after the 7th when you all need to be careful about hypocrisy on the altar of trying to further your goals.

However, for all of you, after the 5th, your ability to be impressive intellectually and to persuade others and to have wisdom and power of thought should not be underestimated.

Before the 7th, for all born after February 9th, higher learning, study and travel is particularly beneficial and brings harmony, love and pleasure into your life and your sense of fairness is underscored, which is appreciated by others.

For all born from January 24th to February 14th, Mars is bringing wisdom, courage energy, both physical and spiritual to your vision and to your life.  Energised travel is particularly exciting and efforts are successful. 

Jupiter, in Scorpio, although is not particularly in harmony with your sign, can affect this month those born January 23rd to January 31st.  For this group, there can be a little bit of an over-confidence or over-reaching or an over-indulgence, or possible arrogance in public or career context.  Enjoy, but exercise moderation. 

Those born February 13th to 16th have very positive input from both Saturn and Uranus this month.  On one level there is responsibility, duty and hard work and constructive maturity in your efforts, particularly for others, but on the other hand, there is a great feeling of liberation, the new and an innovation and freedom of thinking, which you will have for some time.  Uranus is your ruler, so this is powerful and is awakening and by April 2018 you will have felt that the last year has been a truly liberating journey of consciousness.


PISCES

This month accentuates higher wisdom, higher mind and travel, as it does legal affairs. 

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is particularly, positively enhancing the lives of those born February 22nd to March 2nd.  For this group, long distance issues and travel is particularly highlighted, as are legal issues and also extra wisdom, luck, positivity and confidence and general growth internally or externally. 

Before the 5th, all born after March 12th will have an extra dimension of wisdom in your thinking and in your communications and you can learn a lot in long distance context.   This is also excellent for academic pursuits.

After the 7th, all of you will benefit from a combining of love with study and/or travel and generally compassion and wisdom contribute to your sense of affection and charm.

However, after the 5th, all of you may need to be a little bit careful to ensure that your communications are clearly understood in a professional context.  There is room for confusion.

Saturn is a little challenging now for those born March 15th to 18th.  Work issues may prove challenging and difficult or you may have some divine discontent connected with events in your professional status.  Frustrations are in the air.  Be patient, work hard, don’t lose confidence, but know when things need to change and do get rest.

Neptune, you ruling planet, in bringing the nth degree an extra Piscean influence to the lives of those born March 1st to 3rd and he has been so doing since April 2016.  This particular transit is over by mid-January, but has for this group, been truly inspiring, or possibly confusing.  At its best it would have brought a greater sense of spiritual and psychic consciousness and an appreciation of beauty and nature and the arts, like never before and accentuated your talents therein.  At worst, it would have brought some delusion, escapism or deception.  Try and make it the former and keep grounded in this last chapter of the journey.

Finally, Pluto has been very supportive since March 2016 and will be until the end of the year of those born March 7th to 9th.  He has brought powerful friends and you have had power to enhance other people’s lives, especially when working with and for others. Intense intelligence and depth of understanding and transformation abilities have been and continue to be yours.  Use wisely and enjoy.








 






Sunday, 1 October 2017

OCTOBER 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


This is an important month in terms of astrological change.  Jupiter moves on the 10th into Scorpio for 12 months, after having being in Libra for 1 year. When Jupiter is in a sign, clearly it benefits that sign and to a lesser extent it benefits the signs in harmonious angle to Scorpio i.e. Pisces and Cancer and Capricorn and Virgo.  It also can enhance the opposite sign of Taurus, but provided in this case, that there is caution re over indulgence and extravagance or over reaching.

For Aquarians and Leos, Jupiter in Scorpio, being in square relationship to those signs, may also indicate a tendency to over expansive/over confident/over indulgent behaviour over the coming year..

Globally, Jupiter changing signs casts a global emphasis on the characteristics of that sign. In Scorpio over the coming year, it will accentuate intensity of emotion, not least very passionate feelings and ruthless attitudes related to political and religious ideology. Extremism passions perceived as both positive and negative are underlined and stubborn attachment to emotional responses, lacking in intellectual objectivity, is a danger. The senses and passions are strong. It is however good for medicine and discovery as well as all things forensic and which need deep research. It brings advances in healing power. Discoveries and revelations of hidden facts and secrets are underlined. Break throughs and fundamental truths are revealed, that solves mysteries and which can (optimistically), offer solutions to crisis and bring break throughs. Large-scale events connected to the world economy are also flagged up. Endings of certain economic systems  are likely.  Dark issues related to dubious and damaging economic dealings and which have proved very destructive are likely to be revealed.

 Issues to do with the power of sexuality are also underlined in some way.
            
            Generally this month, there is a significant mood of intensity, on a geophysical level globally, suggesting such events as earthquakes or volcanic activity being especially flagged up around the 15th –22nd when first Mercury and then the Sun oppose Uranus.

 Also around the 10th the Sun opposes Pluto, which has momentous geo/political implications, and when the current stand off re North Korea and the US is critical… and the planet generally feels tense. Simultaneously Mars in Virgo squares up to Saturn, which creates much anger

Saturn also squares Chiron and Mars opposes Chiron mid month creating a T square, which adds to global vulnerability/pain.

Jupiter opposing Uranus in the first week of the month does also suggest that risk and daring is in the air and adrenalin flows.

Continuing up to the end of this year, Pluto is squaring up to Trump’s Jupiter. This once every 124 year transit, has since the beginning of 2017, been creating a very dangerous mood in Trump’s temperament, with a use of power and a ruthless egotistical attitude that has consequences of some very dangerous magnitude in terms of others response, as has already been manifested. Others want to trip you up the person (Trump) who is having this transit, in order to protect themselves from the ambitions and blind ego of that person. However this is also very likely going to bring a Trump family crisis, in terms of power abuse, that will impact him considerably.  From around the 14th of October his long 15 week transit of Saturn opposition his Sun and conjuncting his Moon will be over.. . Saturn’s job will be done and the consequences of the lessons and challenges inflicted upon him during the last three and a half months will start to manifest powerfully in his life.

The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in the heavens in the last week of the month, so positivity and confidence raise its head globally then… However Jupiter conjuncting the Sun in Scorpio can also point to excessive passions and excessive confidence winning the day.

 The Moon is full on the 5th  in Aries  on the 19th in Libra.



ARIES
Jupiter moves out of your opposite sign of Libra on the 10th, having been there for a year, so you have all benefited quite significantly from relationship issues during this last 12 months and this month those who are finally going to receive the benefits of Jupiter are those born after April 16th.  For this group, benevolence, extravagance and opportunities can come via others, as well as love and happiness.  It is also a time for travel, but just have a care that one isn’t over-trusting, over-generous or over-extravagant when it comes to significant others.  

 When Jupiter goes into Scorpio, that will put focus onto your areas, which connect with joint finances, depth of feelings and connections.  You will not be allowed to be superficial over the coming year, when it comes to relationships, but there can be bonuses connected to finances that are foreign or connected with partners or relatives. Luck in financial issues is indicated.
Relationship issues will loom large this month and before the 17th you should all take the opportunity to ensure that communications about issues that need resolving are achieved.  This is the perfect time for doing so.

 After the 14th, for all born up to April 11th, there are real opportunities to advance love life, to nurture it and to attract those to you who can bring joy, affection and happiness.
 However, because Mars will also be in your Solar 7th House after the 22nd, if born up to March 27th, there will be a time in that late month period, where this group could attract rather assertive people and some confrontation into your life.  Try not to be too bossy or controlling and beware others may respond in kind.  

 It is true also that this month will involve many of you in some important dealings in your everyday work and your charms won’t go astray in that area, in terms of helping you.
 Saturn brings a mature, grown-up, pragmatism; particularly connected to long distance issues and legal issues and travel, if born April 11th to 15th.  You will find that the work put in then will be beneficial later. 

Uranus is creating chaos and change and restlessness still for those born April 15th to 19th.  Ride the waves with care.  Don’t be impulsive.  Keep safe. Embrace change, but don’t push it.

Pluto is still, for those born April 5th to 8th, bringing a great sense of a need for change.  Power struggles within yourself, not least the need to find your true destiny and direction; and this may be connected to career.

The Moon is full in your sign on the 5th. It directly impacts those born around the 1st –4th of April. For this group, there is a feeling of important truths erupting around you and within. Closings of chapters are potentially around.


TAURUS

Jupiter moving into Scorpio for the next year, from the 10th, is good news for your sign because it rules your Solar 7th House of relationships.  This will bring luck, benefits, and expansion through other people and will enhance a partner’s situation too.  It can also bring travel, but there is a warning that extravagance and over-reaching, or even over-investing in others needs caution. This month those benefiting in this way, are all born up to April 25th

The second half of the month, for many of you, will bring specific bonuses to do with relationships and romance is definitely enhanced; and indeed as is communications with those close to you, which can enhance your relationships.

Before the 13th, if born after May 3rd, much fun, enjoyment, indulgence in life and children’s issues as well as romantic issues can also flourish.

Before the 22nd, if born after May 7th, great energy and drive is put into romance, creatively and constructively so. 

If born May 1st to 5th, Neptune is back to remind you of what you were feeling strongly in February 2017 and will feel again all the way through to mid-January 2018, which is extra sensitivity, emotionalism, almost psychic, thinking with your heart, extremely creative, wanting to help those who need you.  Emphasis on compassion and emotional sensitivity should not be under-estimated.  Use it positively and don’t ignore a need to be near nature and the sea. 

Pluto is continuing to empower those born May 6th to 9th.  Your wisdom is profound, you’re regenerating yourself and you have courage, insight and can make a difference to others and the world around you in a very positive way. 


GEMINI

Jupiter’s once every year move into another sign happens on the 10th of this month and moves into Scorpio then for the coming year.  In theory this should bring a boost to your everyday working life and health issues.  It brings opportunities to shine and particularly in areas of service to others. 

Before the 10th, those benefiting from Jupiter are born after June 18th.  For this small group, there is a real boost to your creative skills, a boost of fertility, a boost to anything that is to do with creative offspring, whether it is mental or physical and a need for fun and to be centre stage, to be joyful and to be very lucky in many ways.  Travel is very much on the cards and growth.  In many ways this is a month for so many of you to really enjoy the positive things of life, the fun and the romantic side of life. 

After the 22nd for those born up to May 28th will have great courage and determination and creative energy to achieve what is wanted and needed and you will be no shrinking violet in romance.

After the 14th, if born up to June 12th you are a magnet for affection and love and all of you can excel in writing and communication skills this month.

Saturn however is a slightly different story.  He is now directly opposing the Suns of those born June 12th to 16th.  As in June and July you’re feeling challenged again by others.  Reality checks around relationships loom large and you may feel burdened.  Obligations, duties and hard work is necessary. Look after your health and step up to the plate and do what you know is good for your future.  Be patient with delays and blocks.

Uranus is innovative however for those born June 15th to 19th.  This long transit of inspiration continues.  Your uniqueness of spirit, desire for freedom for self and others and your more maverick side is shining in a very constructive way.  You are magnetic.

However, if born June 1st to 3rd, note that your idealism and the power your heart , emotions  and sensitivity particularly connected to your work and your work directions are on overdrive and there is a sense of  dissolving and a needed reassessment. Also ensure that you get plenty of rest and that you do check everybody and everything out for authenticity. 


CANCER

Jupiter leaves Libra on the 10th where he has been for a year and moves for a year into Scorpio.  This is very good for your sign.  It enhances your creative skills, your romantic issues and offspring issues and brings a little more fun and celebrations of life into high profile. 

This month, those being favoured in the above way by Jupiter are born up to June 27th  However for those born after July 18th, need to be wary of over confidence and over reaching… but good times can roll.

Up to the 17th, you all need to be aware that communications with family may need extra care.  Misunderstandings are possible.

After the 14th, all born up to July 15th may be tempted to be rather over-indulgent and a spendthrift related to home /family.

Before the 14th, all born after July 5th will be able to combine heart with mind and your charms will be of significant advantage to you.

Before the 22nd, all born after July 7th have Mars giving you a boost to your will and determination.  Ambition is strong and your intelligence, energy and drive is constructive.

After the 22nd, if born up to June 28th, there is a significant risk of crossing swords with others on the family front and you are a little bit like a bull in a china shop, or maybe even a crab in a china shop.  Entrenched positions may need compromise.

Before Jupiter moves into Scorpio, all born after July 19th need, before the 10th, to be aware that extravagance and over-confidence and over-reaching is a distinct possibility.

Uranus is still creating some uncertainty, nervousness and unpredictability within you and from the external world if born July 18th to 21st.  This is not going to leave you until early 2018.  It is a roller coaster ride that you have got used to.  It is probably connected to work and your status issues and a need for change; and if you don’t make it, it will be made for you.  Every change, wanted or not, is an opportunity.

Pluto is still haunting the lives of those born July 8th to 10th.  Power struggles with others need to be avoided by keeping squeaky clean; avoiding dark people with difficult motives and you yourself mustn’t sink to the same level.  This confrontation with yourself and others will strengthen you in the end.  Ends of chapters literally or metaphorically within you, are in the making. 

However, for those born July 2nd to 5th, inspiration is in the air, through travel, higher study, spiritual issues and aesthetics.  Exploit and enjoy.


LEO

Jupiter’s move into Scorpio on the 10th, where he will be for a year, is not quite so supportive for you as he was when he was in Libra during the last 12 months.. 

Initially those born up to July 28th and 29th will be feeling the effects of Jupiter in Scorpio this month.  For this group and for all Leo’s in the coming year, at some point there will be a tendency to be foolishly over-expansive, or over-confident, or even a little arrogant.  One has to be aware of a bit of a sense of entitlement, and the potential to face a bit of a nemesis.  Extravagance certainly needs to be avoided and you need to live within your means.  You have to work for everything that you receive and not take things for granted.

However, before the 10th, if born after August 19th, take advantage this month of the bonuses that Jupiter can bring in terms of wisdom, travel, luck and intelligent communication, which bring progress.  Lots of communications will be around, not least before the 17th and these can be constructive but take advantage of the fact that other people are being straight and honest with you and you can make progress as a result.  Listen to other people’s wisdom.

After the 14th, if born up to August 14th, your charms can work to your advantage and harmony in relationships is indicated.

After the 22nd, if born up to July 29th, your ability to negotiate with your usual courage strength and determination; and to achieve things is flagged up.  You can get things moving through the power of your mind.

Saturn is insisting that for all born August 15th to 18th that you get real, be mature and be very pragmatic and practical about issues to do with finances, family, children, and love life.  Loyalty and duty is paramount now; and hard work put in and obligations to others honoured, will serve you well. 

Those born August 18th to 21st are currently being inspired and will be for some months to come by higher study, long distance issues and a desire to be innovative and liberated and liberating for others.  Your awakened awareness is giving you  more objectivity re self and the world.


VIRGO

Good news for Virgos as from the 10th Jupiter moves into the compatible sign of  Scorpio.  From Scorpio he will enhance your communication skills and your mind and bring luck in travel. 

Initially those blessed this month will be those born up to August 29th.  Confidence and growth is with you and knowledge and extra good communication skills are yours. 

However, for many of you this month, there are good planets on your side. 

Before the 14th, all born after September 5th have Venus flowing through your sign, which brings charm, love and financial benefits into your world.

All born after September 8th are feeling confident, assertive, and powerful.  Just don’t let it tip into over-confidence or over-assertiveness, but your energy and ambitions are strong.  Keep them under control.

However, Saturn is a little oppressive now for those born September 14th to 18th.  As last June and July he is bringing some burdens and restrictions to your doors and you will feel tired, so you need to get rest.  This is a time for hard work, for duty, for obligation, for patience and for re-thinking issues.  Reality checks are there for a reason.  Remember Saturn is a benevolent despot and karmic schoolteacher.

Neptune is still haunting the Suns also of those born September 3rd to 6th.  This once every 165-year opposition has been with you for some months now and will not have finally dissipated until early 2018.  Quite simply you have been under a veil of potential illusion about others, or over-idealisation of others.  If you have put them on a pedestal, they are likely to fall off and if you are trying to save someone, they can become a liability.   Try to see people clearly and realistically and not through rose coloured spectacles, or whatever spectacles suits your emotional needs.  Certainly your sensitivity and empathy is huge, but it could be misdirected.  Keep grounded and get rest and seek the solace of nature and in the arts.

Finally, Pluto is very much the friend of those born September 8th to 11th.  For some time you have been feeling this empowering effect and for time to come.  It gives you regenerative transformative skills, creatively, romantically and connected to young people and offspring.  You have a sense of destiny and insight and a need to use your power wisely to make a positive difference for others, and by so doing for yourself. 
The new Moon in your sign on the 20th falls at 27 degrees of Virgo directly impacting those born around the 18th-20th. New initiatives, new confidence and determination to sow metaphorical new good seeds for the future augur well.


LIBRA

For the last year Jupiter has been in your sign enhancing the lives of many of the natives of the scales; and at least having been given protection. 
From the 10th he moves into Scorpio. 

However, before that date, all born after October 19th will benefit in the last fling of Jupiter in your sign, by experiencing a sense of buoyancy, confidence, expansion, growth, luck and belief in yourself.  It is also very good for travel and for new opportunities. 

In Scorpio, Jupiter will serve, if anything, beneficially to protect many of you at least financially, as he travels through your solar 2nd house 

From the 17th Mercury will be in your sign and this will bring for all of you great and happy communication skills and your mind will be extra sharp.

From the 14th, all born up to October up to 16th will have Venus, your ruler bringing extra harmony, peace, pleasure and affections to your door; and your own aesthetic sense will be underlined. 

After the 22nd, if born up to September 29th, Mars in your sign will bring extra assertive qualities.  You are driven.  You are not shy.  You know what you want, but you need also to not be too pushy about your desire or your opinions, or you can attract contention from others, but determination is yours.

Saturn is your friend now, although rather sternly so, if born October 15th to 19th.  He is bringing discipline of mind, focus, concentration, loyalty and perseverance, which will benefit you in a deferred gratification sort of way.  Duty is in the air, not least towards home and family. 

Uranus however is being rather crazy for those born around October 19th to 22nd.  This continued once every 84 year opposition from the rather maverick planet of Uranus is bringing you unexpected and maybe upsetting events from the direction of other people.  Hang on tight, but go with the flow.  Other people’s unpredictability can ultimately be your liberation, even if you do not as yet realise this.  This is a journey you are still on.  Not an arrival as yet.  That will not show itself until the Spring of 2018.

Finally, Pluto is still demanding much of those born October 9th to 11th.  For the next few months you will continue to feel a need to liberate yourself from oppression in some context.  There is a deep psychological battle going on within which is often helped by some self-analysis, or help from others on that level to find out how you can transform and regenerate yourself in order to bring forth your true potential and power.  Ultimately this is for your greater good.
 
The Moon is new on the 19th in your sign and impacts those born around the 19th-21st. This a period of the new and the innovative and where determination to move forward is unhindered and with little doubt.


SCORPIO

Well, the very good news for your sign is that on the 10th Jupiter moves into your sign for a year, which he does every 12 years.

Initially those blessed are born up to October 29th.  For this group there will be a sense of boost to confidence, a belief in yourself and a desire to move forward, to expand, not least financially.  This is a chapter of growth.  It is great for travel and a belief in self and flags up at the least protection and at best significant growth.

From the 17th, when Mercury moves into your sign, all born up to November 15th will be finding that their mind is extra sharp, insightful and communications flow. 

Before the 14th, all born after November 6th will find themselves happily, socially fully occupied, with warmth and affection from others and leadership skills and caring much about others. 

Before the 22nd, if born after November 9th, your ability to make things happen for others and to be pioneering in some way, with intelligent courage and action, is yours.  You really can herd cats then.

Your ruler Pluto is currently, and has been for some months, enhancing the Suns of those born November 8th to 11th.  Your usual incisive forensic mind is really emphasised to the nth degree now.  You will find out truths.  You will dig.  You will delve.  You will be courageous and transformative to self and indeed to others.  Your ability to study to study and focus and concentrate to almost an obsessive degree will be marked and you will be regenerative to yourself and find your true power potential in a fated way. Others will respect your confidence, your power, your knowledge and your emotionally intelligent way of handing things. 

Finally Neptune is also enhancing the consciousness of those born November 3rd to 6th.  This has been happening for some months and will continue for some months.  He is bringing a real softening and sensitivity to your heart, huge idealism, a desire for harmony, love, and empathy, compassion, which you can give now more than ever.  It gives tremendous bonding on a soulful level with those who you love and especially with offspring. It also enhances your creative abilities and appreciation of the arts to the nth degree.  Your need to be around nature, to keep life simple, to be near the sea and have soul mates around you should not be underestimated; and can be enjoyed.  True emotional inspiration and depth is yours. 


SAGITTARIUS

Jupiter moves into Scorpio on the 10th having been in Libra for a year.  Jupiter moves into each sign for a year, every twelve years. 

In Scorpio Jupiter, even though he is your ruling Planet is not directly related to your sign in any particular significant way, but at the least he will provide some psychological potential for peace and quiet protection.

In the meantime, before the 10th, all born after December 18th will be benefiting from last days of Jupiter in Libra.  For this group sociability is high, leadership skills are strong as is a feeling of well-being and luck and progress. 

From the 14th all born up to December 13th will be very grateful for friends and love-life and friendships can combine and sociability and harmony is strong.

After the 22nd, for all born up to November 29th, there will be a very healthy drive and ambition and ability to help others and the ability to fight for others’ rights will be strong too.  You have intelligence and energy that brings success.

However, pesky Saturn of course is still in your sign and will be until latish December.  Currently he is again testing those born December 13th to 17th, as he did last June/July.  Life feels a little bit tough, like an uphill struggle.  You need to watch your physical well being, but hard work and focus and soldiering on is necessary, despite a maybe inner feeling of despondency or lack of confidence.  You are currently seeing the glass as half empty, but the works that you put in now and the efforts that you make will pay off, despite the fact that it feels like you’re climbing a rugged, steep mountain.

However, if born December 17th to 20th, Uranus is continuing to have an exciting influence on you. He is bringing creative innovation, a need for change and a need to be authentically true to you.  He is making you take a leap into new love-life, finding exciting new people in your life and allowing you to reach out for the freedom you feel you want and deserve, to be true to your authentic goals and ideologies. 

However, Neptune is a warning to all born December 2nd to 5th that you need to get rest, you need to be near nature, you need to be near the sea and you need to be wary of not seeing clearly, particularly in relation to those around you.  Check everything and everybody out carefully. 


CAPRICORN

Welcome news this month that Jupiter, having been for a year in Libra, is going to enter Scorpio, which he does every 12 years and will be in that sign for a year, which is good news for your sign being in compatible relationship. 

Initially those benefiting will be born up to December 27th.  From Scorpio, Jupiter brings for this group and for the rest of you some time during the year a great sense of brotherhood with others.  He brings leadership skills.  He brings social life to the fore.  He brings good people into your friendship group and help from others.  He brings luck, support, intelligence, growth and travel; and you will want to work for the greater good, not just for yourself and you can do that successfully. 
 However if born after January 17th, be careful of  being over confident or over reaching or even over relaxed re career .

Indeed, after the 17th, all born up to January 12th will find your communication skills with others very productive and others will bring good, wise advice to you, particularly friends. 

Before the 22nd, if born after January 7th, you are in very determined and wilful mode, but in a very constructive way.  You will be passionate about what you believe in and travel can be very adventurous and satisfying.  Your courage and energy is strong and well directed. 

Uranus is a little tricky now for those born January 16th to 19th.  This has been happening for some time and will continue for some months.  This once every 42 year square is making you restless, uncertain, needing change, unpredictable, particularly on the domestic and home front.  Keep strapped in and be prepared for the ride to continue to be a little bumpy.  The journey isn’t over yet and won’t be until spring next year, but it will bring out in you the more maverick and awakened side as you choose to be uniquely true to yourself. 

Pluto is currently in your sign and this means that for some months gone and for some months to come those born around January 6th to 9th are feeling a great power of destiny.  This can be very positive, but it can also feel challenging.  You are asked to show your true potential.  The only thing you have to remember is that the power that you feel and direction you feel you have to go in has to be for the greater good and not just about self-aggrandisement.  Motive is everything.

Finally, those born January 1st to 4th are being imbued with hypersensitivity.  You’re more emotional, more empathetic and compassionate now and will be for some months to come, but this is all positive.  Your heart is important.  Use it to work for the greater good and enjoy the beauties of the simplicity of nature and spiritual contemplation, and heightened artistic gifts and appreciation are underscored.


AQUARIUS

Jupiter’s move away from Libra, where he has been for a year, into Scorpio on the 10th puts his relationship with your sign in a square angle.  This is not particularly bad, but it is not as proactively supportive as you’ve had with Jupiter in Libra. 

Before the 10th however, those born after February 14th will benefit from the last few degrees of Jupiter in Libra.  For this group, travel is very highly underlined, study success, wise minds, super conscious awareness, luck and growth is yours. 

However, after the 10th, those born up to January 26th may feel a little over-confident, a tendency to expect too much of life or of themselves, or to bite off more than you can chew, particularly career wise.  Have a little moderation, but positivity can be yours.

Saturn, your co-ruler, is being stern but kind to those born February 10th to 14th.  He is giving you duties and obligations to others, maybe in a leadership or group role, but this you handle well, with conscientiousness and wisdom Good results ensue.

Your ruler, Uranus, is in harmonious position still and has been for some time and will be for some months to come to the Suns of those born February 14th to 17th.  This brings huge intuition, insight, the big picture understanding, and your ability to be lateral in thinking.  It all enhances your true Aquarian nature.  Wisdom is flowing and you are confident in it and own it; and your magnetism is underlined.  In fact, for this group, it is an extremely liberating time when your written and spoken word can be a catalyst for change.  Do not waste this opportunity, although you will not want to.  This every 42 year transit is special and yours for a purpose.


PISCES

Jupiter’s move into Scorpio on the 10th is extremely good news for your sign, as it is in such a compatible relationship to you.

Initially those benefiting will be those born up to February 24th.  This augurs extremely well for travel, for study, for philosophical awareness and your higher mind.  It brings confidence, luck, growth and opportunities.  It also emphasises your spiritual side too and creativity, which is intrinsic to your sign. 

After the 17th, all born up to March 12th will have your mind sharpened, particularly when dealing with abstracts and in terms of the super conscious mind.  Communications will be easy and learning through travel and higher education is a joy. 

Before the 14th, Venus will be in your Solar 7th House, benefiting enormously those born after March 3rd.  For this group, love and romance, affections and harmony are absolutely in the air for you.  You give and receive love and affection.

Before the 22nd, Mars will also be in your Solar 7th House which is a slightly difference emphasis and suggests additionally to what I’ve just indicated, that all born after March 6th, will also have Mars in your 7th House, which means that you will be in a mood to attract people who are quite assertive, and who may be a little bit contentious and you too will be quite able to invite this energy because of your own determination.  Passions are in the air, not least romantically.  Notably around the 4th to 6th.  Just keep your cool to try to ensure that others do too.

Saturn is a little challenging, as he was last June and July for those born March 12th to 16th.  Stresses to do with work or obligations, responsibilities are feeling burdensome and duties are in the air.  However, by gritting your teeth and stepping up to the plate, you will achieve a lot, so don’t let lack of confidence defeat you.  It is also true to say that it is a reality check deignedfor you to reconsider certain issues if they are becoming too troublesome, especially connected to your career. 

Neptune, your ruler, is powerfully sitting still on the Suns of those born March 1st to 4th.  This has been around you for some months and is a once every 165-year hit.  It is bringing out the most extreme Pisces idealism and potential escapist qualities, as well as your psychic qualities, but above all, keep grounded and use your sensitivity positively for the greater good and don’t let it use you in a misleading way. 

Finally Pluto, who has been hovering around in his once every 120 year transit to the Suns of those born March 6th to 9th, is continuing to bring you a very deep intuitive and incisive time and it gives you power to direct in a positive way groups of people and be very transformative and healing for friends too.  This is destiny guiding you to show you how you can help improve the planet in some way, albeit maybe on a small level.  It doesn’t matter; and you have the courage and power to do this and you will probably have no choice.
The full Moon falls on the 6th in your sign at 13 degrees, affecting those born March 3rd-5th. This group my well experiences an upsurge of emotion and the arousal of the unconscious in self or others that bring important messages and significant consequences. A sort of clearing house of some potential turbulence.











Thursday, 31 August 2017

SEPTEMBER 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


Mercury moving direct from the 5th will be very constructive for many, as goals get furthered and communications become clearer.  Strong multi planetary emphasis on Virgo (purity and environment) this month will also flag up environmental issues, with increased realisation of a need for change to a more sustainable and planet protecting policies. Mars moving into in Virgo from the 5th will underscore this. Not least because of current extreme weather events worldwide in Asia, India and the USA, which will alert people to the real effects of climate change, despite the deniers.

Talking of climate change deniers, in the first week of the month, Mars will be at 29 degrees of Leo, which is exact on Trump’s ascendant, having on the 31st of August, triggered its own place in his chart, hence he will be rather explosive in temperament, re foreign policy in particular, in those opening days of the month. There is however, if we get past this period unscathed, a small, if temporary respite from the warlike noises of July and August thankfully and Uranus is in positive mode, as is Pluto, so there should be at the least a feeling of more optimism and progress in constructive news on the planet.
Trump still (since the beginning of July) has Saturn conjunct his Moon and moving to oppose his Sun from the 26th staying there till half way through October.  This protracted every 30-year assault/learning curve from Saturn brings events and karma that are not easy.  However with Pluto still squaring his Jupiter (since July and every aprox 124 years) he will remain in fighting mode till mid December. This transit also creates significant power struggles with others with powerful wills (including family).
The last few days of the month sees Saturn square up to the natal degree of Neptune in the USA chart. This will see the dawning of very significant reality checks in that country, not least in economic terms and in international standing and reputation, but also re its president, as wake up calls are huge.

The last week of the month sees Jupiter oppose Uranus in the heavens. This once every 12-year event will embolden many to take a rather risky leap into a future, perceived as freer and more exciting. An adrenalin rush is in the air. It may also manifest as a feat of technology that is revolutionary, but with possible unpredictable outcomes.

 The problem with leaps in technological capabilities however, is that they are not always matched by leaps in wisdom.

Neptune (an outer planet so it has generational effect in its influence) now in Pisces till 2025/2026 and since 2011, creates a backdrop of a renewed sense of a need to honour the natural world and has awoken us as to how much we have sacrificed it on the altar of our consumption and greed.  However, all born with Neptune in Pisces will be a generation greatly affected by this awareness and in their essence there will be a powerful desire to value and protect nature and its creatures.

They will realise that the natural world can sustain our need, but not our greed.

This month days when there are however some smoke and mirrors and deceptive circumstances geopolitically very pronounced are on the 4/5th, the 20th, and the 24th/25th.  The Sun, Mercury and Mars respectively will then be opposing Neptune and this creates confusion and possible misjudgement of facts and slight of hand. This energy is also an influence on us all individually too.

The Moon is full on the 6th at 13 degrees of Pisces,  (exactly on Teresa May’s natal Mars.) Some eruptions are in the air on that day (not least for her perhaps).  The full Moon brings things to a close, as truths will out and the brooding unconscious is unleashed.

The new Moon is on the 20th at 27 degrees of Virgo. New starts are in the air and a renewed sense of confidence. 


ARIES

It really is a month to concentrate on everyday routine work and to rationalise this if possible.
Before the 10th, focus in terms of communications is on romantic and creative life.  However, from the 5th, when Mercury moves direct, breakthroughs will feel a relief.  After the 10th, again, work needs your attention.  

Before the 20th, for all born after March 27th, the affections and romance and enjoyment of life and creative skills are enhanced. 

After the 20th, once again, work and health issues are in a very positive light 
 Before the 5th, all born after April 16th are in determined mode.  Creatively and in romantic areas there is a drive and a will to achieve in a very successful way.  Again, after the 5th it’s back to more mundane issues.  

 Jupiter is enhancing the relationship area for all born April 10th to 18th.  Other people are generous, other cultures may dominate your life, and there are general benefits from others, but don’t let other people tempt you into being more adventurous or confident than is realistic.
 
 However, there is a strong sense of the brakes being on for those born April 10th to 13th.  For this group there is discipline and hard work needed and you are required to step up to the plate, so do what is necessary and loyalty and duty and hard work connected to travel is a strong possibility, but work done and duty done now will pay off in the long term. 

 Uranus is still really exciting the lives of those born April 16th to 19th.  There is a continued restlessness, which you have experienced for a while now.  The unexpected is in the air.  You surprise yourself and others and events are very left field.  Just keep calm.  Enjoy the journey.  Try not to throw babies out with bathwater, but know you are awakening and enlightening to a new consciousness and this will go on until early 2019, so don’t push the river.  Don’t rush. Watch the change; and even changes that are uncomfortable ultimately are part of your destiny.  

 Finally, Pluto, since 2016, has been squaring the Suns of those born April 5th to 8th.  This continues until the end of the year.   Some power struggles and profound changes in your work have been dealt and will continue to be, hopefully wisely.  Fate is around.  Keep good motive.


TAURUS

 This is a month for enjoyment, fun and sociability.  Notably for those born after April 29th.
 After the 5th, a lot of issues that have been difficult, blocked, or restricted or frustrating will clear. 

 After the 10th, for all of you, communications with offspring, spouses, lovers and all creative ventures go very well; and your mind is articulate.  

 Before the 20th, all born after April 28th will be feeling very indulgent and enjoying the good life.  Just be aware of lacking moderation.  

 However, after the 20th for all born up to May 4th love life is underlined.  Affections are strong and offspring are a joy; and those with a creative bent, flourish.
 
 Before the 5th however, Mars is slightly challenging for those born after May 17th.  There is a definite need to stop and think before you react or speak, particularly around home and family, as you are a little bit like a bull in a china shop.  Impatience is in the air and others will not respond kindly to this.

 However, after the 5th, for all born up to May 8th, you’re in constructive mode and nothing’s going to stop you creatively and constructively dealing with projects that involve enjoyment, love life and offspring.  

 Neptune is continuing to inspire and sensitise the lives of those born May 2nd to 4th.  This long transit, since March, continues strongly until March 2018; and during this period you will find that your desire is to have your heart satisfied as well as your idealism and your humanitarian, compassionate and sensitive side.  Your creative side needs celebrating and understanding and accepting.  Certain psychic qualities are also likely to be triggered.  

 Finally, for all born May 6th to 9th, Pluto continues in his long journey to inspire, empower and re-invent your life somehow.  Opportunities that are long distance and connected to expanding your mind and consciousness are all around and you can recognise potential and power (use wisely) that you have never really felt before.  Enjoy.

GEMINI

 Home issues predominate.  Focus lies with family.  Your ruler, Mercury finally moves direct on the 5th, allowing your thoughts and speech to be clearly understood and for blocks and restrictions to life to lift.  After the 10th, all of you again, will find that there is a great need for expressing yourself and communicating on the home front.  

 Before the 20th, those born after May 28th are able to combine heart with mind; and your charms and your empathy are strong.  Writers excel.  

 However, after the 20th, for all born up to June 4th, your desire to enjoy life and to indulge may exceed the bank balance; and spending generously on the home and family needs a little caution. 
 Before the 5th, however, all born after June 18th have a very strong sense of determination to get heard and that may be because of the frustrations of your ruler being retrograde.  However, your actions and your courage are noteworthy and positive.
 
 After the 5th, for all born up to June 8th, your energies may be causing some problems, as you are easily irritated and rather impulsive; and you may waste time on bickering.  Impatience is strong.  Have a care. 

 Jupiter, however is gracing the lives for those born June 11th to 20th.  Creative talents are flourishing.  Confidence, travel, loves life has all got great support and optimism; and relationships are particularly beneficial and happy. 

 However, for those born June 11th to 14th, despite Jupiter’s protection, are feeling that something or someone is blocking their path to complete happiness.  Get rest, Be patient.  Step up to the plate and do what is necessary in terms of duty, obligation and pragmatism.  At least Jupiter is acting as a cavalry effect..  

 Uranus, however, is still giving all those born June 18th to 20th a boost in terms of awakening you and enlightening you to new possibilities and making you restless for the innovative.  Friends and groups are inspiring you.  You are discovering new dimensions of self and life; and technology and the innovative can be a great boost.  This remains with you, on and off, until March 2019.  Enjoy.
 
 Finally, those born around June 2nd to 4th are still dealing with Neptune’s square to your Sun, which will be with you strongly until March 2018.  This continues to bring over-idealism and potential confusion, or look through rose coloured spectacles.  You have had to be very careful to honour your heart and to realise that there is a need to let your career express your emotional side, not just your strong rational side.  Watch out for deceptive circumstances round others and be true to yourself, but enjoy nature and the arts, as that is very healing.

 CANCER

 Your mind is sharp and alert this month.  However, after the 5th you will really notice the benefits of this, when Mercury moves direct.  Communications with others, particularly siblings, will be enhanced.  Notably after the 10th when your mind is in good form. 

 After the 20th all born up to July 5th will have an extra dimension of love and harmony and sensitivity added to your thoughts and communications; and augers very well for the writers amongst you.

 After the 5th, all born up to July 9th will feel strong willed and determined and constructive in your thoughts and utterances.  People listen and admire.  Your constructive strength should not be underestimated. 

 If born July 13th to 21st, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun, which does tend to a little over-confidence, possibly some arrogance and maybe pushing out the boat too far.  Have a bit of caution, but do enjoy this expansive period.  

 Uranus, for those born July 19th to 22nd, is however continuing with his square to your Sun, which does hang around until around March 2019; and this energy can feel; and has done for some time, quite disruptive, particularly in your working and professional life.  There is restlessness and there is the unpredictable in the air; and other and work conditions may be going through a stage of uncertainty.  This will ultimately liberate you, but just watch, ride and be flexible.  This is a journey. 

 All born around July 3rd and 4th are being truly inspired through to early 2018.  Other countries and higher learning are bringing out your most sensitive and aware self.  Empathy, caring and compassion is strong.  Spiritual and creative pursuits are very favoured.
 
 Finally, all born July 8th to 11th are continuing to find that life has got a fated quality about it and that certain relationships are going through significant changes, as you realise that you cannot be controlled or manipulated.  By the end of the year this will have been resolved.  Meantime, stay strong, draw lines, do not abuse power and do not sink to other people’s levels of behaviour if they do.  Endings are followed by phoenixes out of the ashes. 

 LEO

 The focus is very much on finances this month, being Virgo’s month, which is your Solar Second House; and from the 5th, any blocks or restrictions that you have been experiencing are likely to lift; and from the 10th, finances may run a little more smoothly.
 
 Before the 20th, Venus is in your sign is, for all born after July 28th, enhancing your charms, and bringing love and affection to your door.  Enjoyment predominates.  However, from the 20th, financial dealings and favours can enhance your life.  

 Before the 5th, Mars is in your sign and very much affecting you if born after August 19th. There is drive and ambition for this group, which can tip into assertiveness – which is excellent for the rest of us.  Courage and determination is at the least yours.  

 After the 5th, many of you may find that others and yourself express assertion in financial issues. 
 Jupiter is supportive now of all born August 13th to 21st.  A certain amount of luck is yours and intelligent action, which can bring progress; and certain benevolence is also yours too. 

 On top of which, Saturn is for the very small group of those born August 13th to 16th, pressurising you to be very mature, pragmatic, dutiful, loyal and face up to facts and step up to the plate and achieve what your obligations tell you to.  Responsibilities in love life, around offspring and in speculation are yours to see through. 

 For all born August 19th to 22nd, you still have Uranus trining your Suns.  For this group, there is an ongoing sense of liberation, freedom, the new, the innovative, particularly connected to legal issues and overseas issues; and possibly being awakened, through study, to new dimensions of consciousness.  Belief in uniqueness is strong and enabled and other people are very much catalysts for this new consciousness that is liberating.

 VIRGO

 This is your month when there is lots of emphasis on your sign, so power to your elbow and a great sense of the life force is being focused on you.  Your ruler, Mercury, moves direct on the 5th, which will bring a relief, particularly a psychological relief, that finally maybe things can start moving forward, having been on hold since the middle of August; and indeed after the 10th, all of you will really feel the strength of your mental skills finally being put to good use, appreciated and bringing good results and your communication levels will speed up remarkably. 

 Before the 20th, if born after August 30th, there will be a sense of well being in your inner psychological self; and behind the scenes good deeds will be very much appreciated. 

 After the 20th, if born up to September 6th, your own charms and affections are underlined; and love life is strong and your ability to attract love and money is underlined.  

 After the 5th, all born up to September 10th have Mars going through your sign and over your Suns, which will bring a great deal of assertiveness, determination, courage and constructive power.  Just ensure it doesn’t tip into slightly aggressive impatience.  It will be hard for you to take no for an answer.
 
 Saturn is rather challenging now for those born September 13th to 16th.  This has been going on for over a month, but will lift next month.  There has been a feeling of block and restriction in your actions and it may have come from home or family issues, or to do with real estate.  It is also a time when you can feel tired and everything feels like an uphill struggle.  Keep disciplined, focussed and working hard, but patience is your virtue right now.  Get the rest that you need. 

 Neptune continues, in his very long protracted transit of your Sun, if born September 4th to 6th; and will do so until March 2019.  This is a journey where you have felt very much an element of uncertainty, confusion and shades of grey around other people.  You may have idealised people and you may also have been vulnerable to other people’s lack of sincerity or plain deception; and it is important that you maintain your vigilance and do not take everything at face value.  However, it is also true that your desire for your heart to sing is strong, for there is increased spiritual awareness and creative appreciation and also appreciation of nature, which all needs to be acknowledged and fed.  Just beware of escapism of a negative sort.  Music and the film world can however be very healing.
 
 Finally Pluto is really empowering for those born September 8th to 11th and has been since early 2016.  This is a period of real regeneration and transformation and self-reinvention through love life, children or creative gifts.  Enjoy. 

The Moon is new in your sign on the 20th at 27 degrees of your sign. Hence for those born around the 20th, there is likely to be a sense on your birthday of a new chapter being born and where you feel happily more at one with yourself and confidently focused than usual.


LIBRA

After the 5th, there will be a relief in terms of your goals and your social life becoming a little more straightforward and less subject to confusion and misunderstandings and hiccups will get resolved.  This very strong emphasis on Virgo this month would point to much behind the scenes activity, privacy and also dealings with issues and people that are very much connected to the past; and kindness to others and empathy and service will be flagged up.  Not least after the 20th when your ruling planet Venus moves through your solar 12th house; and love life takes on a rather private dimension.  

 Before the 5th however, if born after October 20th, your ability to influence other people and to be a leader should not be under-estimated.  Social life takes on a strong force in your life; and which you can use very much to your advantage and where you can be very much the driver of a very good and positive outcome.

 However, after the 5th, there is a need for you all to remember not to sit on anger.  Express it calmly to the right person, at the right place, at the right time. 

 Jupiter is very favourable now to those born October 14th to 22nd, as he transits your Suns.  He did this twice before – the end of December 2016/January 2017 and then again end of February and March 2017 and this is the final hit, before he disappears for 12 years.  This, quite simply, will bring optimism, positivity, joy, luck, travel and at the least protection.  He will also bring wisdom and a certain amount of belief in self and confidence that will carry you far. 

 However, for those born October 14th to 17th, there will be an additional energy of Saturn, positively enhancing your discipline, focus, patience and hard work capacity, which bring extra success.  It also brings intelligence and wisdom in thought and communication.  A very progressive period. 

 For all born October 20th to 23rd, there is an additional energy with the planet Uranus continuing to oppose your Suns.  This dynamic and rather unpredictable energy has been hovering around the Suns of this group since June and will continue to do so until around March 2019.  Other people are the sources of disruption and their surprising behaviour or desire for freedoms, or their inspirations to you can be life changing; and although upsetting, ultimately will catapult you on to a new and better road, but equally, unusual and unconventional and rather maverick people can awaken you to new conceptions and new ideas, but just be cautious that you don’t allow other people to be too disruptive. 

Finally, if born October 9th to 12, be aware that you are still in a phase of life where you need to liberate yourself from the old in order to give birth to the new; and internal struggles are part of the process, but keep conscious, cool and calm and take charge of your destiny without anger.

 SCORPIO

Friendships and goals, social life figure strongly this month; and frustrations around work will be relieved from the 5th as clarity rules. 

From the 10th, the power of your communications to make your goals happen is restored.  
Beware before the 20th, if born after October 30th of being hypocritical or sycophantic at work.
After the 20th, if born up to November 6th, your ability to show love and affection and creativity in terms of your leadership abilities and your goals and working with others is admirable and friends can turn into romantic partners.  

 However, a warning to those born after November 19th that before the 5th, there is a slight danger of you being a little bit too assertive in your working capacity.  Irritation and impatience can your worst enemy and do not be coercive.  Indeed you may also suffer the same at the hands of others.  Handle it with wisdom and calm.

 However, after the 5th, if born up to November 10th, your techniques and drives and confidence are well-expressed and constructed for self and others.

 Neptune is very much a sensitising influence now for all those born November 4th to 6th.  This influence, which has been going on since earlier in the year, continues to be strong until March 18th and indeed you will never lose it completely.  It has sensitised your soul, has put a focus on your heart and your emotions, particularly when it comes to love life, the arts and one’s offspring.  It has awoken a more spiritual and less material side, with empathy and compassion and sensitivity and intuition about others has flourished.  

 Finally, your ruler Pluto has been sextiling the Suns of those born November 8th to 11th since early 2016 and continues to until the end of the year.  This has, and continues to bring intelligent power to your door, particularly in directing and helping other people with leadership skills that are intelligent, sensitive, regenerative and transformative; and provided these skills are used for the greater good and not just for yourself, this is a very satisfactory period. 

 SAGITTARIUS

 Quite a lot of focus is on work this month as there is so much emphasis on your solar tenth house of Virgo.  

 However, after the 5th, there may well be a feeling of relief for many of you as communications and progress clarifies.  

For all of you there is still a need to be absolutely certain that you are all talking from the same page, particularly professionally.  

 Before the 20th, for all born after November 28th, love and travel can go hand in hand and general feeling of harmony with other predominates.  Harmony comes from study and travel.
 
 After the 20th, however, if born up to December 5th, ensure that you are genuine at work and not exercising charm, just to get your own way, bur certainly charm will help.

 From the 5th, Mars will, for all born after December 17th bring a great feeling of determination, courage, focus, especially connected to study, travel and legal issues.  You are ideologically very passionate as well. 

 However, after the 5th, for all born up to December 9th, beware that impatience irritability and over-assertiveness does not rebound you negatively in the working environment.  Also beware of people in authority maybe throwing their weight around a little.  Confrontations are possible. 

 However, for all born December 12th to 20th, Jupiter is smiling on you.  It is a great time for friendships, for helpful people, for good contacts, for networking and for leadership skills.  Travel, confidence and potential growth and luck is in the air. 

 However, some of you will really need this protection as Saturn is sitting on the Suns of those born December 12th to 15th.  This is a long drawn out stressful transit that you have been enduring.  Blocks, restrictions, tiredness, some financial anxiety possible have all be haunting you.  This will resolve with patience, determination, focus, hard work by late October.  Get rest when you can.
 Uranus, however, is still inspiring for those born December 18th to 21st.  Areas to do with creative world, love life, enjoyment is all being exercised with excitement and the unpredictable and you are being liberated on many levels to a new sense of your own uniqueness. 

 However, for born around December 4th, you need to continue to keep vigilant about escapism, over-idealism and maybe even trusting too much.  Getting plenty of sleep and being near the sea will help.

 CAPRICORN

This is an excellent month for travel and for long distance issues and holidays for many of you.  Also legal issues can be favourable, particularly after the 5th when Mercury moves direct, when travel hiccups are smoothed and academic progress is underlined. 

 From the 20th, for all born up to January 4th will also find that love life and happiness is very much hand in hand with travelling and learning.  An enhanced consciousness is yours. 

 After the 5th, all born up to January 8th will have a great sense of constructive energy, ambition, determination and intelligent action.  Notably in travel and in study; and success is assured in those areas, although prior to that, many of you may be putting a lot of effort into enduring complex financial are sorted out and indeed intimate relationships as well. 

 For those born January 11th to 19th, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun.  This does imply that there is a danger of over-reaching or over-ambition and even for you a rather unconfident side may be a little bit of arrogance in ambition.  At the very least you will be having a good time with self-indulgence.  Just ensure that others don’t feel that you are pushing too far, particularly in the working environment. 

 Uranus however, is still causing some unpredictability and restlessness within and without for those born January 16th to 19th.  Domestic circumstances and family issues may be making you feel as if you are on the edge of your seat.  This long transit is a journey, not an arrival and ultimately wakes you up to new dimensions.  

 Neptune is inspiring those born around January 3rd.  The heart is opened and your thinking is combined far more with your emotions than it has been before.  Your sensitivities and your artistic and spiritual nature is flourishing. 

 However, if born January 6th to 9th, you are until the end of the year, completing a period of real transition in terms of your power.  Endings of chapters have been in the air and continue to be so.  This is about self-reinvention, transformation and regeneration; and sometimes you have to go through the dark to get to the light.  Destiny is in the ether.

 AQUARIUS

 It is quite important this month to focus on intimate relationships and complex money issues; and after the 5th, relationship issues in general can start to become more concrete and secure. 

 Before the 20th, if born after January 26th, romance and love life flourish and your charms attract positive vibes from other people and you attract affection. 

 Before the 5th, however, if born after February 15th, there is a potential for attracting who are rather assertive or even aggressive.  Confrontations are possible.  It is important that you are not too rigid, fixed or impulsive in dealings with others. 

 However, if born February 9th to 17th, Jupiter is bringing good fortune from long distance connections.  It is very good for travel and holidays.  This is very good for academic success and growth and a general feeling of well being, inner and or outer.  

 If born February 9th to 12th, Saturn is bringing much stability through hard work and discipline and patience and maturity to your lives.  Obligations and duties are accepted with honour and consciousness, with constructive, positive results in the offing, particularly in obligations to other people in leadership roles.

 Your ruler Uranus continues to bring out your Aquarian best if born February 15th to 18th.  Your mind is super intuitive.  You have eureka moments and you are able to communicate to self and others in a way that is outside the box, universal and even existential in its understanding and insight.  Study of the less mainstream subjects inspire you.


PISCES
      
 It is very much about other people and relationships this month.  From the 5th, when Mercury moves direct, you will find that you can really sort problems out with others, as communications become much clearer.

 After the 10th, for all of your, there is a great sense that people everywhere are listening to you; and you receive very good and intelligent communications from others as well, which are constructive. 

 After the 20th, if born up to March 4th, love life can take a turn for the better and there is definitely a feeling that Cupid is in the air and you attract much affection and what you give is reciprocated.
 
 After the 5th however, one needs to be a little bit aware that if born up to March 8th, Mars may well bring into your orbit some people who are a little on the challenging side; and you have to be careful that you do not invite this, by being over-assertive yourself.  Others may confront you and test your resolve.  Stop and count to ten before you react. 

 Saturn is less than helpful if born March 11th to 14th.  Responsibilities, obligations and duties feel onerous and burdensome and blocks and restrictions prevent you moving forward and your tiredness is significant and needs respecting.  With patience and perseverance you will get through this block, but reality checks need acknowledging.  

 Neptune however, is maintaining his mesmerising grip on those born March 2nd to 4th.  There are two ways of dealing with this long transit, which will not be completely over until early next year; and which is creating two possibilities.  Either escapism, over-idealism and non-reality, or real inspiration, empathy, compassion, sensitivity and a desire to really excel in creativity.  New spirituality is around as is almost a psychic awakening but do keep rounded and avoid running away from realities, but do also listen to your heart. 

Finally, Pluto is, for those born March 6th to 9th, giving you a tremendous sense of insight, intelligence and power to affect the lives of other people for the better; and therefore to improve your own self-image.  A time of intelligent insight as to what your destiny is and how you can help others.  Use this power wisely and not for ego, but for others.  You are the steward, not the owner of the power. 

 The full Moon is at 13 degrees of Pisces on the 5th. This suggests that those born around the 3rd-5th of March, are likely to feel a sense of potential eruption that comes from ones own unconscious machinations or from another’s on that day. This may indicate a need to bring a chapter or situation to a close, or at least to confront and maybe clear away much baggage
