AUGUST 2016 OVERVIEW AND HOROSCOPES


The world is in hugely unpredictable mode and the collective consciousness is quite unnerved, as the inevitability of change, (being one of the two certainties in life…  three if you include taxes) is underway.  The critical 15 degree point of Pluto in Capricorn s triggering the half way house point of that sign and is about transition from the hubris to the nemesis of that sign’s symbolism (cosy political elites and power of money). So, the fall out from the unacceptable side of uber neo liberal capitalism, globalisation and corpocracy is coming home to roost. The years till 2025 will be uncomfortable as the journey continues.  Collective and individual (often-bloody) rebellions will inevitably be the outcome.  There is always the danger in times of anger and frustration, that any change grabbed and any scapegoat chosen, that seems to hold the answer, often manifests as an “out of the frying pan into the fire” result or creates a whole new set of difficulties.

We are starting a period of post globalisation.

Neptune in its own home sign of Pisces, since 2012 till 2026 has brought a sense of smoke and mirrors and confusion over facts and presentation of them.. We are living increasingly in an era also of post truth politics, where facts are sacrificed on the altar of fear and media fed opinions. Economic truths are hard to establish, as even economists are subject to interpretation of their “science” according to their predisposed ideology. People do not trust “experts” now, partly because of poor communication of and explanation of facts, by those who study the issues and because of distortion and selection of them by the media/politicians, who have vested interests. There is a real danger that the age of reason will be lost on the altar of such vested interests, emotion and illusion/fear and selective perception, that this once every 165-year trip of Neptune through Pisces can foster.

 Ideally once Neptune moves into the second half of Pisces, around 2019, the more spiritual side of this planetary position will be embraced collectively, as the realities of the need to work together on a larger canvas other than mere forces of economics/power, but with a focus on saving the planet from mankind’s abuse and greedy exploitation, i.e. the focus must be shifted away from money /the material to other more profound considerations of the human condition and the plight of our 3rd rock from the Sun.

Extremism is born of fear and a sense of disempowerment and is the natural response to broken systems that political powers have persistently not addressed.  Mars in Scorpio on and off since early January, and powerfully so since late May, has brought much global radicalism, intensity, pain and ruthlessness.  He leaves Scorpio on the 2nd.  From there he moves into Sagittarius, where issues over globalisation and boundaries /borders will be rife and confrontational.

The Corbyn/labour party debacle in the UK and the Trump phenomenon in the USA are all symptoms of rebellion against a status quo that has not worked for the many, only the few and Uranus in Aries ensures that the disenchanted people will speak (wisely or not) and the comfortable ruts of the old system are shaken as a result. They need to be shaken, but in a very careful and kind way.

Add climate change to the mix with resultant intense geophysical/environmental/food crises and we are in for a bumpy ride.   When Pluto enters Aquarius (the new and the innovative and technology) in 2025, we will either be emerging into a whole new more enlightened system  …or the power of technology will so dominate us, that we will be at its mercy, rather than be its master..

Theresa May, our new UK prime minister is a Sun in Libra, like Thatcher   (No time of birth known) but she has a powerful Virgo input and a strong Pluto conjunction with Venus in Leo and conjunct the Moon (in Leo or Virgo, depending on time of birth, but still conjunct with Pluto) This makes for a controlling, intense, and critical being and she is very evidence and data based.  Her Mars in Pisces however does soften the picture, and bring empathy for the underdog, but the zealous opposition of Mars to Jupiter in Virgo gives a pioneering, zealous streak that can be at times about the pursuit of power and glory at the expense of caution/compassion. Her Saturn in Scorpio, is also pretty unbending. Without that final focus of the ascendant, it is hard to get a full picture.

Thankfully this month is calmer and less disturbing than last… a temporary respite.

The new Moon falls on the 2nd at 10 degrees of Leo at 9.27 GMT and the full Moon is on the 18th at 25 degrees of Aquarius at 20.45 GMT..

Sow on the new and reap on the full…



ARIES

 A month for creativity, enjoyment and leisure and love life is more highlighted than usual, for you all but don’t take your eye off the ball work wise …   Romance and the affections are flagged up very strongly before the 5th, if born after April 13th and for all born up to April 4th, there is a strong emphasis on travel /vacations and for some in this group, focus on study too is in the air too.  However with Saturn in the same are some travel may have a work or dutiful feel.

Work is looking fairly protected with Jupiter in Virgo your signs solar 6th house, and health regimes can work well for you.

Uranus in your sign is still bringing to all born round April 13th-15th (every 84 years) a feeling of adrenalin, need for change, the unexpected, the new and the liberating (at best) but the unnerving (not so comfortably) also.  You are feeling different and the impulse factor needs care and caution.. Look before you leap or accidents can happen.. When this period is over by Feb 2018, you will be in a different place somehow..

 Pluto is also still squaring (every 124 years) the Suns of those born around April 4th-6th.. This influence has been underway since the March 2015 and is rolling out till the end of this year. It brings challenges within and without about power and a need to liberate from unhealthy and oppressive influences   that on some level you are or have been colluding with work issues may be part of this struggle or authority figures need to be detached from somehow.. This is a time of psychological depth and honesty, so you can regenerate/transform self and at the same time not abuse power in so doing.

TAURUS

 Home/family matters are important this month. Energy spent on domestic issues can be valuable. However the advantages of good communications with ones offspring and also in love life are very flagged up too for all. Writers are also particularly blessed, as the creative font is strong. Before the 5th, if born after May 14th, there is a slight danger of over indulgence or over spending on home and family. So try to have a little moderation. Entertaining at home can be a joy though.

 After the 2nd there will be some sense of relief in relationships that have felt a little adversarial or controlling for some months.. The pressure is off, but focus on complex joint finances may become quite strong, and can be constructive.

Jupiter is very supportive now if born May 12th.-20th.  Happy times round children and expansion in love life is very possible and affections are definitely underlined. For all creative/artistic pursuits this is also an excellent and confident/successful period.  Socialising is especially successful and enjoyable.

 Neptune is inspiring still if born April 29th-May 2nd. This is a period till the beginning of 2018, when your empathy, compassion, sensitivity and emotional richness is more emphasis than in the past, and your creative inspiration is strong too as is a desire to be there for others in need and to feel others pain is strong as the boundaries between you and others are diminished. Your spiritual side too is strengthened, as is a greater sense of connection with and love of nature is evident

 If born May 5th-7th, you continue to feel a new sense of power and courage, in your big picture awareness and a sense of destiny continues to drive you. You are able to self foster and self reinvention with higher learning or long distance contacts or travel being catalysts for this new sense of self..  This continues till the end of the year, so use wisely and appreciate this once in a lifetime growth.

GEMINI

You usual intellectual assets are strengthened this month, with communications skilled even sharper than usual.

 However family communications figure strongly too and need care, and make sure there is no room for misunderstandings.  Negotiations re real estate /property may figure strongly too and needs sharp attention.

 From the 2nd all born up to June 5th, need to be aware that Mars in your solar 7th house will be bringing some quite acerbic and challenging communications from others.. There is a hint of over assertion and some confrontation with others, so patience and forbearance may be needed. However in debate you will meet you match and need to respect differences.

 Jupiter, if born After June 12th, is creating a bit of a tendency to be a little self indulgent or to have a sense of entitlement and a little over confidence is a possibility.. Enjoy the sense of luxury, but have some modesty too.

Saturn is a little challenging now to all born May 30th-June 2nd (as last December).
There is a need to recognise in a mature way m duty and obligation. There is also the possibility that some one or something seems to be blocking your path and this feels frustrating. Others also are presenting you with reality checks and relationships are possibly revealed to be more difficult than you anticipated. Either you recognise that others are teaching you something worth while and accept this, or you may realise some body is a problem that may suggest a need to reconsider the relationships validity. This takes a lot of self-honesty and humility. It is also possible that you may need to consider the validity or strategy of a certain goal you have embarked upon that has hit the buffers somehow..  Look after your health too.

 Neptune creates some illusions or uncertainties and confusion still if born May 31st- June 3rd.. Keep real and don’t take any one or any thing at face value. If dissatisfaction at work is a problem, consider your emotional /spiritual needs and think of work that satisfies that more.

Uranus is quite inspiring now if born June 14th-16th.. You are feeling more intuitive and inclined to see the bigger picture, you also are becoming more altruistic and concerned with freedom and humanitarianism.. There is also a sense of being awakened to a new chapter of freedom and self-authenticity. Enjoy, as this lasts till February 2018!.


 CANCER

Finances are flagged up for attention, especially personal ones and before the 5th this can prove successful, but you are all also in communication mode. Disseminating information and learning /discussing /reading and a need to talk is string and is valuable and incisive and after the 5th you communication skills are blessed and enhanced by charm and aesthetic skill.

Mars, after the 2nd puts some focus on work issues in a way that demands your effort and ambition.. It may also flag up a new health determination in some context.
Jupiter aids and abets the intellects and communication success of all born after July 14th. You get noticed and listened to and writers and speechmakers can flourish.

Siblings can also be very positive influences and communication with them is enhanced.

 Uranus is a little disruptive now to all born July 16th-18th.. There is a feeling of disruption and the unexpected and insecure possibly around professional issues.
You may also feel yourself that there is a sense of a need for change and your serenity is not so sure. Uranus awakens you to new insights and dimensions pf self and this is a journey that you cannot push, and which continues till early 2018.. Stay flexible and watch the evolution with patience and open mindedness. Inevitable change will arrive so do not push the river.

Neptune continues to inspire all born July 1st –4th. He is enhancing your creative inspiration and spiritual side. Other countries and spiritual paths inspire. There is also a sense of increased empathy /compassion emotionalism, all positively expressed.

 Pluto however is still bringing to many born around July5th-8th. a feeling of struggle with powerful energies outside themselves …. This has been ongoing since early 2015 and fades from late this year.  Forces that feel dark or threatening somehow need careful handling. You have been and are tested to keep squeaky clean and to draw boundaries around those who may misuse power. You have to look at the dark but not be defined by it. Meet it eye to eye and deal with it with dignity and quiet defiance.. Walk away, even if it means cutting some losses if need be.  Endings of chapters are inevitable in some way, but you emerge transformed, stronger and matured.

 LEO

This is your sign’s month. Enjoy being high profile and in the spotlight especially before the 5th if born after August 16th. Venus is then really adding to your popularity and enhances Cupid’s power… However you all need some focus on finance too and after the 5th, that area can be enhanced.

Mars after the 2nd is turning from feeling a stressful power to a helpful one and if born up to August 7th, you can look forward to a period of happy enjoyment, support and joy from offspring and a real sense of fun and romance may well be in the air . It is also a great time for the arts and creativity too… You are feeling extrovert and you take to the stage readily and happily.

 Jupiter is still at the least protecting your finances, at the best bringing financial opportunities.

 Saturn is also currently supportive and maturing for those born in the first two days of August.. You are stepping up to the plate re love life and children’s’ issues and have the discipline and maturity to do what is necessary to improve and secure those areas. You also have added discipline and patience in any creative pursuit.. You can gain admiration now because of your efforts and seriousness of purpose.

 Uranus is very exciting and liberating too now for those born August 16th-18th.  For this group exciting new chapters are opening up from long distance sources and travel is really awakening. Higher study and education is a great catalyst for enlightenment and the need for a new and more inspiring chapter in life calls somehow. Relationships are often the catalyst for this as others that come into your life trigger change that is quite a kick start into a new, more exciting future somehow. This is around till about February 2018, so look forward.

The new Moon falls in your sign on the 2nd directly impacting those born around August 2nd-4th. For these Leos there is the potential for a new chapter being born with the initiation of the new and positive in the ether.

VIRGO

This is a month of some need for privacy and maybe a need to revisit the past in some way, especially up till the 22nd.  However the presence of your ruler Mercury in your sign all month does point to a sharp mind and great ability and need to communicate. Just ensure you listen as well as talk.

Before the 5th, there is a possibility of behind scenes affections and good done for others rather privately. After the 5th, there is an enhancement for all born up to September 17th of an extra charisma and attractiveness and loveability is enhanced and affections are underlined.

 Mars leaving Scorpio on the 2nd brings the potential for some tensions /challenges/irritations from family and re home issues. Patience and tolerance is needed and also a need to listen to complaints with openness. However there may be some unnecessary and unwarranted irritations by others. Your energy could be a little overbearing at home however.

The very positive news for this born after September 14th, is that Jupiter, still in your sign, is now exactly conjuncting your Suns (Every 12 years). For this group, there is a real sense of joy, confidence, advantage, growth, inner or outer, and with travel very possibly underlined.  A happy period with a sense of enjoying life is indicated. The only down side is the possibility of over confidence or even a touch of arrogance, although these is not a typical qualities of your sign.

Saturn however is not so well disposed to those born September 1st-4th (as last December.) There is some block or problem possibly connected to home /family /real estate. A need to rethink relationships and your own behaviour is flagged up and it is also necessary to get real and to do what is necessary to put your house in order and reality checks now can be very useful. If you address the work needed to be done.  Look after health too.

Neptune still indicates a need to check the reality and the credentials of others if born September 2nd-5th. Do not project onto others what you want to see and don’t be easily seduced. This a great time for creative gifts, but over idealism and rose coloured spectacles are a danger.

 For those born September 7th-9th, Pluto is bringing the gift of empowerment, very possibly in love life and in the arts and in fertility generally. Confidence and destiny is on your side.  This lasts till the end of the year so appreciate the opportunities.

LIBRA

The desire to be sociable and work in cohesion with others for a common cause is strong for all, but especially for those born after October16th who will be especially warm and sociable and popularity in networking is strong.

There is also a tendency for much communication that has a private feel too and it is possible that sometimes there is a feeling of being rather isolated in opinion, despite the sociable environment. And after the 5th those born up to October 17th may well find that much love and caring has a behind the scenes feel.

 From the 2nd Mars, newly in Sagittarius gives effectiveness and boldness of communication and your words and communications are delivered with ambition and assertiveness.

Saturn also lends a serious, mature and grounded feel to all communications and thoughts, of those born October 2nd-5th.  There will be a positive, respected and constructive outcome from decisions and connections with others. Hard work is demanded, but pays off.

Uranus is a big player now in the lives of those beings born round October
17th-19th.. Others and circumstance are creating uncertainty , change and disruption in ones life , which can be upsetting or destabilising , but it can also create a new catalyst for change and freedom , that ultimately is a positive thing, even if initially it is not welcomed .. Change is inevitable now but it is also important to treat this period right up to early 2018, as a journey, so stay adaptable and flexible and go with the flow. 

Pluto is a challenge still till the end of the year for those born October 8th-10th.. . Issues re family and domestically are challenging and the need for independence and personal independence and empowerment is strong.. Struggle happens internally and possible externally… It is a time for consciousness about inner old dynamics that are quite primeval and now erupting. It is important to be conscious self aware and controlled now; so that you are in charge of the power you feel rather than let it overwhelm you.

SCORPIO.

There is a focus on career now and public standing as you are in the public eye and before the 5th if born up to November 17th, your charms and charisma aid and abet your status, but beware of sycophancy.  After the 5th friends are invaluable and social life is fulfilling.

 Mars finally leaves your sign on the 2nd after a protracted period where assertive behaviour and ambition and some convoluted conflict has been in the air.  From Sagittarius, there is a focus of determined ambition and drive towards finance.

Jupiter is happily supporting now those born after November 13th. Lucky meetings with others and generous friends/contacts enrich life and your generosity to others pays off and back twofold.

Neptune is still a very kindly influence now on the lives of those born November 2nd-5th. He is bringing a huge boost to creative drives, needs and talents, especially related to music, film and visual arts. It is also a time of great spiritual links in love life and huge idealism that rises above just the physical. Children/offspring are also a real source of inspiration and love and joy and general compassion and sensitivity is hugely amplified. This is around as a factor early 2018, so allow its strength to enrich your life. Being near the sea/water is also a particular healing experience when Neptune is strong.

Pluto your natural ruler is still and till the end of the year, really positively impacting the lives of those born November 7th-9th. For these privileged Scorpios, this once in a lifetime influence allows real intellectual self regeneration and courage and allows a flowering of the insight implicit in all Scorpio beings … focused particularly on the power of incisive forensic intellect, understanding and communicative skill.  Siblings too may play a significant role in this destined period of development.


SAGITTARIUS

The perfect month for travel and furthering academic and legal pursuits is at hand and before the 5th, if born after December16th, love life and the affections are linked to travel and learning somehow too.

Much careful focus and thinking/communicating is demanded in career for all too this month, but after the 5th if born up to December16th.. Your charms are good tools and advantageous career wise and socially.

 Mars moves into your sign on the 2nd, so all born up to December 7th, will feel an extra surge of dynamism and ambition at best, but maybe a sense of over assertiveness at worst.. Others too may be a little too ready to assert themselves in a rather domineering way in your life.  Mars is activated and he is a trigger planet.

Jupiter still square to your sign from Virgo, is now creating for those born December 14th-20th, a sense of possible over confidence (possibly career wise) and maybe a tendency to over commit, over do or be a bit over extravagant.. You can enjoy this transit, but have some caution and restraint. Saturn by contrast is now bringing some reality checks and blocks possibly to the lives of those born December 1st-4th, as last December.  This is a period to not circum to too much negativity.. but to step up to the plate and be practical and to work hard putting a better infrastructure into your life.  Patience and some endurance will pay off. Look after your health too.

Uranus is enlivening and awakening now if born round December15th-17th.. He is bringing a new sense of confidence in your authenticity and desire to have more freedom and uniqueness in life, possible connected to love life and the creative arts.. Children’s issues are sources of the new as well.  Awakening times are around you now and for till early next year..

 If born December 1st to 4th, you still need to be aware of (and till the end of next year) the need to see clearly… There is some sense of confusion and uncertainty in life, possibly connected to roots and at the same time as feeling a need to reach for ideals. Keep grounded and be aware that you check all information out and don’t assume you have everyone sussed. Beware smoke and mirrors and you need sleep and music to heal any sadness and hypersensitivity, but your compassion abounds now.

CAPRICORN

 A time for depth and not the superficial, not least a need to focus on private, intense issues, not least finances and intimate dealings.

 Long distance communications are underlined now and so is academic focus. .. Communications demand wisdom and the higher mind and after the 5th love life and travel/other realms can combine if born up to January 15th.

Jupiter is very much on your side now if born January 12th-19th. Expansion, growth, wisdom and luck is around you somehow. Holidays are flagged up and general happy travel and bonuses from far off places. Luck is suggested re legal and publishing issues too. Good academic results are also in the air.

Uranus is a little challenging from now till early next year, for those born January14th-16th. There is a real restlessness and sense of disruption within and externally, possibly round home /real estate and family issues… Change is in the air, but do not be too impulsive and over reactive. Stay flexible and see this period as a bit of a journey with some false starts and reversals but that is ok.  Changeable feelings from day to day are part of this transit, as is a need for some adventure/excitement /adrenalin, but caution is needed and risks carefully considered. Including physical ones. Have patience and know the outcome is a new chapter and that one of the only certainties in life is change. Uranus’ task is to awaken and enlighten in his rather unpredictable way. Finances may have unpredictability too.

 Pluto is still powerful if born January 5th-7th (and has been on and off since the beginning of the year). A real sense of power has erupted within and/or a realisation of an sense of endings of chapters in life that can be quite challenging, but which are the precursors of the new and empowering and self reinventive.  Destiny is in the air this goes very deep for sure and feels quite primeval in essence.. Keep squeaky clean and know this is a revolution that is not really completed till the end of this year.

Finally Neptune continues to inspire those born January1st to 3rd. More emotional response is now evident in you and your creative/artistic and spiritual sense is heightened as is compassion, empathy and love. Music and film and the visual arts can flourish in you life now. This has been underway  since early this year... and has not completed his work till the end of 2017.


AQUARIUS

It is all about the power of others in your life now for the good and before the 5th if born after February 12th, love life can particularly flourish.. Communication that is serious and meaningful can be useful this month especially related to complex finances and private and intimate issues too.

 Mars moves into friendly to you Sagittarius on the 2nd and from there will bring for all born up to February 3rd an intelligent energy, that gives leadership skills and a sense of constructive progress to your goals, especially if they are collective.

Friends too give good advice and inspire and vice versa…  Saturn is a serious and constructive force now for those born January 28th-31st. He is bringing maturity of stance and judgement, a sense of discipline and a hard work ethic and loyalty and duty to bear on what you are trying to achieve and your sense of duty to others now is admirable. Others, especially friends too can be a source of support and constructiveness in your life’s efforts.  This may a time of all work and little play, but the deferred gratification is well worth it and others admire you achievements and attitude.

 Uranus your ruling planet is now bringing out your best Aquarian characteristics now and for the coming 12 months, if born February 12th-14th.  Your mind is mow extra intuitive and you are looking outside the box and thinking laterally or divergently even more than usual. Eureka moments are in the air and you are also more than usually maverick and individualistic in your approach to life. The need to fight for a better future for self and others is strong. Your altruism, idealism and humanitarian instincts now are paramount. A new leap into a new consciousness is under way and your teaching and communication skills can be inspiring now .You are really fired with knowledge, and more importantly, wisdom. And insight.

The full Moon on the 18th hits those born around February 14th. For this group truths will erupt and the unconscious is unleashed in self and others. Endings of chapters show themselves somehow.

PISCES

 Looking after routine work and organisational issues and indeed taking care of health is on the menu this month.   Mercury in your opposite sign of Virgo is also suggesting that you all will be in very strong communicative mode with information from others and conversation being prolific and beneficial and it is important that you listen and be listened to with focus. After the 5th, all born up to March 15th can also look forward to enriched affections and romantic potential with others.

Mars newly in Sagittarius from the 2nd is going to challenge to some degree those born up to March 5th. For this group there is the potential for some confrontation or irritation in a work context or with authority figures in any context. Impatience with others or intolerance issues are in the air and this can be you as victim or perpetrator.

Stop and count to 10 before speaking or reacting to any challenge or frustration.
Ambition can also create some ruthlessness in behaviour, so beware.

 Jupiter is moving now towards the end of his journey through Virgo, and this means he currently is opposing the suns of those born March 12th-20th. For this group there is a strong feeling of luck and advantage brought into your life through others (and through travel) and indeed from others from other cultures, or those who are able to bring advantage, luck and wisdom into your life. However this can also manifest as
an over strong sense of expansion and extravagance and often over confidence in all issues, especially related to others.. It can bring excess that can be later regretted a little, so caution is needed to get the best from this transit.

Saturn is a bit of a reality check now for those born February 27th- March 2nd… career /work issues are tricky and hard and delays and frustrations generally are possible Tiredness and a rather low mood is in the air too.  This is a time to bite bullets and rethink strategy and if necessary admit what you need to change and face facts with maturity .It pays off if you do. A bit of humility does not go astray with Saturn.

Neptune your ruler is also still really bringing full Pisces consciousness to those born March 1st to 3rd and this may well be modified by the Saturn influence. It is important not to let your hypersensitivity dominate and use it wisely for the betterment of others and for creative work, but keep grounded and don’t be over idealistic or escapist. If you are, Saturn will soon show you the realities and ground you.

Pluto is continuing to be a regenerative and empowering influence on those born March 5th-7th, mainly completed by the years end.. Your transformational influence in groups is strong and effective friends and contacts further your goals for self and indeed for others.

JULY 2016 ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS HOROSCOPES


So Uranus currently is on, by transit (ever 84 years) the ascendant of the chart for England (Norman conquest 1066). Massive change and disruption and possible surprise reversals are unleashed heralding a rather unknown, long journey (at least another 18 months) that has massive implications, and not just for the UK. .  So much is unravelling, as Pluto takes us through the last half of Capricorn.  Nemesis is in the air globally. The dispossessed and the angry are putting two fingers up to the establishment in so many ways.  Uranus (rebellion /people power/anti establishment) rules the 11th house, which is the house of collectivity/groups and the immigration issue of course is therefore very implicated and subject to confusion and chaos in negotiation..  Also notably In England’s chart, Pluto is sitting by transit now on its natal Mercury in its 10th house, till late 2017(every 248 years).  The death (Pluto) of a certain status/function is indicated, and joint finances (with other nations) will be a source of power struggle (Pluto) and ruthless change for many months to come.  The intensity of negotiations /research and profound depth analysis (Pluto) needed to make the changes will be exhausting and hugely challenging. Pluto has a fated quality, so this all has inevitability about it in the human/global condition. Hopefully a phoenix rises out of the ashes, as so often happens with such a transit

This is a very intense month globally, with several very strong Uranus and Pluto challenges   notably around the 1st, 7/8th, 11th, 16th/17th. This indicates globally power struggles and dramatic eruptions socially/politically and possibly geological. Endings of chapters are in the air. The shocking /eruptive becomes more commonplace.

Saturn squaring up to Neptune for all of us currently, is also and indicator of ideals being dashed and disillusionment being in the air, but it also indicates the need for really hard pragmatic efforts being needed if ideals are to be achieved. The oceans (Neptune) certainly will be crying out for practical attention (Saturn) in some way, to do with pollution /dying coral reefs and the power of water /floods /rising sea levels, melting ice caps will be issues that cant be ignored, or at least only at our peril. Practical committed solutions have to in the air.

Positive periods where progress and hope and mitigating factors is in the air are around the 1st 8th, 10th, 17th.

ARIES

 Home/family is a focus this month.  Communication and affections are highlighted.
 After the 12th for all of you communications in romantic relationships and with offspring are very productive.

After the 14th all born up to April 14th may find that the power of love and affection is strong and your charms are appealing. This is a sociable time with popularity strong. The arts are favoured and appreciated too.

 Mars now direct brings a sense of progress and movement in financial issues and intimate private connections get a boost in terms of seeing a way forward.

 Saturn is currently back harmonising with the suns of those born March 28th-April 2nd. Journeys may have to be made out of duty or for work and there is a strong sense of hard, but productive and rewarding work being demanded of you and you need to hear the call and just do it.

Uranus is still creating a once every 84-year real revolution for those born round April 13th-15th. Rebellion within and change from without drive you to a new chapter that is flagged up. This trip lasts on and off till February 2018. Remain flexible and don’t grab change impulsively, but know that this is a necessary journey.

 Pluto is still bringing a rare challenge to those born April 4th-7th. This may involve some power struggles within self, or from others, notably connected to professional affairs or from authority figures.  Keep dignity, search within for the roots of this and be conscious and in control of emotions and do not resort to ruthless tactics, but understand the potential of this time fully, but be in control of it with a clear conscience. This has been underway since March 2015 and will be complete as a journey by late 2017..

TAURUS

A month of much loving communication, thought and restlessness with much coming and going is at hand. After the 14th however for all of you there is a need to ensure that communications are fully articulated, so as not to risk any confusion.  Entertaining from home and revamping ones domestic environment may well be a happy preoccupation after the 12th for all born up to May 14th. Just beware of over extravagance.

 Mars still in your opposite sign of Scorpio, is now direct and opposing the suns of all born May 13th-20th. For these natives of the sign, there is a distinct sense of opposition from others and you will be quick to retort and impatience is in the air.  Take care with rushing, as accident proneness is possible.

 Jupiter now is favouring those born May 7th-13th. Love life, party mood, fertility and creative sparks/talents are all underlined. Luck too and a sense of optimism and growth, as well as travel is in the air.

 Neptune is still currently favouring gently those born the very end of April /very beginning of May… Friends are empathetic and compassionate as you are to them. There is idealism and gentleness and a more emotional response to life. There is a new sense of spirituality in interest and also in creative skills, notably re music and the visual arts.

 Pluto rarely still now empowers those born May 5th-8th.  Long distance issues and academic /philosophical interests and benefits are strong now. Self-reinvention and a sense of destiny is in the air. It is important to grasp the nettle and know that this is a time to rethink your potential in a confident and proactive way… and use your power for the greater good.

GEMINI

Money/security can be a preoccupying topic for many of you this month and in a positive way especially if born after June 6th.

After the 12th all born up to June 14th will have extra charm added to their communications, which can make you more effective in communications. After the 14th, there will be a boost to intelligent and effective reasoning power and extra convincing communication skills.

Mars now direct, will bring a sense of progress and movement in work and possibly in health regime issues.

Jupiter now tempts those born June 7th-13th to be a little over confident or have a sense of over indulgence. Wit caution and some modesty, however this can be an enjoyable time, with family /home/real estate issues being favoured.

Saturn however is now (in his every 30 years cycle) opposing the Suns again (as last December 2015) of those born May 28th- June 3rd.  This brings a sense of block, frustration, hard work that is tiresome and demanding and also a sense of tiredness and even a feeling of feeling that health is not so robust, so look after yourself.. This is a lesson in the need to face realities about situations and people and there could be a need to rethink direction and confidence can be knocked. However like a schoolteacher demanding you do your homework. If you step up to the plate, you will be glad you did when the results of the work pay off.

 Neptune continues to warns those born round June 1st-3rd to check facts and beware rose coloured spectacles and don’t trust too much what seems to be the case.. Keep real.  Beware all deceptive potential especially in a work context..  However communing with nature and enjoying the arts and the sea can be very refreshing and healing.

Uranus meanwhile is bringing a spark to the lives of those born June 13th-15th. This may show itself as interesting and exciting new people /friends /contacts into your life who inspire you and wake you up some how. Your social sense and desire to fight for what you believe in may also be stimulated.

 CANCER.

Your month and this is a time therefore to shine. You can feel centre stage and with a hunger to communicate and if born after July 7th, your personal charisma is shining and you feel good and are looking good.  Love and charm are part of your being more strongly than usual.

 After the12th, finances loom large in your sign’s consciousness.

 Mars now direct in Scorpio augers very well for the courage, drive and energy of those born July 15th-22nd. It ignites your sexuality and confidence in all efforts to attract others and to enjoy life and it also gives a powerful creative drive.

Jupiter helps now those born July 8th-14th.. Confidence in your wisdom and in all communications is underlined and you can be listened to with admiration. Writing /teaching skills are excellent too, with good connections with siblings emphasised. There is happy travel indicated too.

 Uranus creates disruption and the unexpected for those born July 16th-18th, notably connected to status and some dissatisfaction with this. A restlessness leads to a need for change, which is in the air, but change for its own sake would be unwise, but an awakening is around you.

 Neptune, if born round July 2nd-4th is still bringing a longing for the more spiritual and or creative in life. There is a more emotional idealism prevalent now and a new sensitivity/compassion and more psychic side being nourished in your being.   Other lands and higher learning can provide inspiration needed.

 Pluto however, if born July 6th-9th is still bringing some difficult challenges from others who may be less than gentle in their use of power and there is a sense of endings in the air making way for the new. It is important to draw careful boundaries round the temptation to behave ruthlessly.

 The new Moon in your sign on the 4th affects those born around the 6th July. The new and positive is flagged up

LEO

This is a time of year for some privacy and reflection for many of you. The past also calls.  However after the 12th You rather emerge again in your more usual extrovert self, and many of you then feel a strong sense of your attractions and talents which others really respond to and after the 14th you will all have a greater confidence in your ideas and in your ability to express them well and harmoniously.

 However Mars is in challenging angle this month to the Suns of those born   August15th –21st. Challenges from family and problems round home issues are in the ether and you may be feeling intolerant, angry and impatient too. Impulse needs to be avoided, and the bull (or lion) in the china shop may be an apt description of your being now.

 Saturn is now helping those born July 31st-August 4th to be pragmatic, disciplined, loyal, mature and effective in what you do, not least in creative work and indeed in love life and in dealings with offspring /children.

 Uranus is now continuing to excite and awaken the energies and spirit of those born August 16th-18th. Liberty and stimulation connected to other cultures or though higher learning is very much on the cards.  This also brings a new objectivity and detachment from the ego, which adds another dimension of consciousness and offers new opportunities to head in a different direction.

VIRGO

 Friendships and working towards mutual goal with others are favoured now and a serious approach towards ones sense of social duties is indicated.

After the 12th, there will be a move to a more private sense and communications and love life will have a more clandestine, or behind the scenes quality.

Mars is constructive and promotes ambition and drive for all born September 15th –21st. This brings constructive assertiveness to your being and incisiveness to your thoughts, words and writings.  You can overcome loss of confidence or any shyness.

Jupiter in your sign now is bringing his every 12-year bonus to those born September 9th-15th.  For this group there is a sense of buoyancy, confidence growth inner or outer and the desire to be pushing forward in life with success in mind.. It also is excellent for vacations/travel.  Jupiter also brings extra vision and a bigger picture view of life, but tone down over confidence or even a little arrogant.

 By contrast Saturn is back to challenging those born September 1st-5th. For you this can bring a similar feeling to last December/January. That is a sense of burden /challenge /block and tiredness, related possibly to home /family /real estate factors.

This is a time for some humility and pragmatism and to face facts and do what is necessary. Hard work and reality acceptance and even courage may be needed and also patience. The delays and frustrations will pass but is to be learned from. Later the lesson, if learned, will be valued.

Neptune is still opposing the Suns of those born September 3rd –5th (since April 2016 till end of 2017), so there remains a need to be vigilant about any potential smoke and mirrors or deceptions from others and also beware projecting onto others what you want to see. Keep grounded, but do indulge music, the arts and love and enjoy the beauties of nature and the sea. Also importantly acknowledge increased sensitivity to our planet and to others.

Finally Pluto is still bringing courage and positive empowerment in romantic and creative activities, if born September 7th-10th. This is a rare influence. Enjoy.

LIBRA

This is a month for focus on your career and public face, whether you like it or not. After the 12th focus is also on social life and collective activity and after the 14th if born up to October17th, love life and friendship can inter mingle and your charms are proactive in your ability to achieve your goals.

Mars puts focus on finances now and there will be a feeling of the accelerator going on in this area.

Saturn is a rather maturing friend now for those born October 1st-5th. For this group a rather serious thought process is needed and communications with others, possibly especially siblings, are of necessity now more pragmatic, mature and constructive. What you say and hear has a large chunk of serious reality about it.

Uranus continues to very much bring shake-ups and unexpected events related to others behaviour if born October 16th-18th.  Largely external catalysts now determine your life and so you need to be on guard. Adrenalin flows and remember that others are not consistent, so you cannot rely on others now, but they can be ships in the night that play a significant part in your life and then move on. For some this will all point to ultimate awakening and a new freedom. This bumpy period lasts on and off, and often rather in the back ground, till around March 2018

 Pluto, if born October 7th-10th, is creating still (since March 2015) a feeling of a need for escaping from any pressure from others, a need to escape any control and a determination to emerge a more powerful individual with a sense of independent power and purpose.

Beware ruthlessness within and look deeply at the real subterranean issues that are erupting now.  You can find your own eruptions, which are quite primitive, and volcanic (and probably rooted in valid need for change) may also attract unpleasant, deep-rooted responses from others.

SCORPIO

A great month for travel and for long distance issues and for thinking big picture, also for legal concerns, after the 12th focus is also drawn to career issues and if born up to November 15th beware sycophancy, but you charms are useful in relation to your public face.

Mars is hugely powerful now in his own environment of Scorpio and now direct; and for those born after November 15th there is a real ambition and power to your action /behaviour. A determined, focused and even ruthless quality is unleashed for good or ill. Beware what you want, as it may be achieved, but it could be at a cost.

Jupiter is in harmony from Virgo with your sign and currently most favoured are those born November 9th-15th. For these people there is a sense of luck and progress based on intelligence. Friends are beneficial to you and vice versa and your leadership skills are shining. A real sense of progress is highlighted in your goals, socially, affection wise and materially.

Saturn in your solar 2nd house now continues to remind you all of a need for careful caution re finances.

Neptune is still harmonious with those born November 3rd-5th. This brings inspired creativity and the arts are more than usually appreciated and healing.  Sensitivity to others and emotional responses are strong. A need for soulful connection in love life also dominates.  Your relationship with offspring has a greater sensitivity and empathy now that can forge great bonds.

 Pluto, your massively important ruler, is now signalling for those born November 7th-10th a time of incumbent power that needs directing for the greater good and which allows you to see where your skills and lust for truth and regeneration are best needed and successfully used.

SAGITTARIUS

 Be aware of the need to focus on complex financial issues and the more private intimate issues in relationships and closeness and truth is needed.

After the 12th focus shifts a little also to long distance concerns and travel. Also a more philosophical angle is mulled over, but this is a great period for successful academic progress too. From the 14th also, for all born up to December17th there is a link of love life with other borders., and a love of travel is satisfied.

Jupiter may tempt those born December 8th-14th to be a little over confident of what can be achieved and beware biting off more than one can chew.

Saturn, still travelling through your sign is now targeting again those born November 30th- December 4th  (as last December/January). For this group a realty check re life is burgeoning and a mature grasping of what needs to be done is in the air. Blocks and frustrations are in the air and a time to take stock and review now of the future is probably needed. Look after your health and get a balance between what is needed to be done and re and avoid excessive negativity. The cup is fuller than you think or feel right now.

Uranus is still bringing a very different mood for those born December 16th-18th. This group (till Feb 2018) will be feeling the need for independence, and positive new leaps into a more authentic future. Love life and opportunities related to creativity have a sense of the new and exciting. Children/offspring also are sources of the new and exciting.

If born around December 2nd –4th, a sense of confusion and lack of certainty about things is disorientating. Much of this possibly relates to home and family issues. This last on and off till February 2018, so be prepared to float a little and take no irrevocable decisions. Beware self-delusion and deceptive circumstances and there are dangers of distortion of viewpoint, and sacrifices may be made that are not so necessary as you think. Keep grounded and see this a journey that demands a need to trust the trade winds, as there is a lack of a compass, as to judging the way to go.

CAPRICORN

Relationships are major influences now and others moves and issues impact you strongly. After the 12th focus on joint issues emotionally and financially becomes strong also.

 Mars is now powerfully direct from Scorpio and positively he will endow those born January 12th-19th with a sense of social determination to achieve goals with others with a powerful leadership role underlined. Intelligent drive and constructive ambition is indicated. Achieving desired goals is given a boost.

 Jupiter is also very much on your side and supportive if born January 7th-13th. Excellent indications are flagged up for travel and academic happiness/success. A natural increased philosophical wisdom is indicated. Legal issues get a boost and also any international dealings are favoured.

Uranus may be creating uncertainty for those born round January 13th-15th. This is a period in the background till February 2018.  Domestic change is likely and a feeling of restlessness and a need to acknowledge inner frustrations will show themselves. This is not hugely disruptive, but acknowledge a need for some adjustment to changes in self and others, that can ultimately be quite eye opening and progressive. It is important however not to be too impulsive. Think things through and look before you leap.

 Neptune still enhances the aesthetic/artistic and spiritual sensitivity for those born January 1st-4th.  Emotions rule more than they have done historically, but in a very constructive role.

Pluto is in a powerful position (every 248 years) for those born January 5th-8th and has been on and off for some time.  Your true potential is now flagged up to grab with a sense of destiny. Endings of chapters are possibly seriously in the air… and a new empowered journey will start. It is important with this to be the owner of the power in a humble way and not the victim of it .You are the steward not the owner of power. It comes through you, not from you.  Avoid ruthless dark motives that come from dark sources within and from baggage from the past. Intensity in some context is part of the experience.

 The full Moon on the 19th affects then those born around 20th/21st. A time of the culmination of issues that are brought to the surface and need in some way to be confronted and so put to rest.

AQUARIUS

July is a month where your solar 6th house is activated, putting the emphasis on routine everyday work and health issues.. An excellent period for a new health regime and rationalising practical aspects of life and work is flagged up.  The second half of the month also accentuates relationships and the impact of others (positively) on life. Love life and the power of affections for those born up to February 15th are also looking brightly highlighted.

 Mars now strong from Scorpio and is challenging to those born February 11th-18th.
For this group there is a sense of intensity and some anger/impatience on the professional front and also related possibly to authority figures. Have a care and show patience and caution when reacting and avoid rushing/speeding.

Saturn (your co ruler) is a restraining and maturing influence now for those born January 30th February 2nd.   Working hard with other in a project will be necessary and controlled patience and sustained effort to solve problems are rewarded with success and some admiration from others. Saturn is a benevolent despot and brings you challenges now to test your courage to put your life in order and address these challenges bravely, successfully and realistically.

Uranus, (your main ruler) is a helpful and rather exciting influence on those born February 12th-14th. For this group there is a sense of a renewed intuition and ability for thinking outside the box. New ideas and concepts can be very inspiring for life and your future.


 PISCES

This is a month for fun, extroversion and creativity and also for a draw to romance and speculative ventures, socially and possibly financially. Offspring/children are bringers of joy and can be a focus too

After the 12th work issues are also a focus and also love and social life can overlap with work issues. Health is supported too.

 Mars is supportive and strong now for those born March 13th-20th. Much energy and drive, ambition can be connected to travel and long distance interests and effort put into study and academic/ philosophical/ideological issues.

Jupiter is positive now for those born March 7th-13th.. He brings good times indulgence travel and confidence especially connected to relationships.  The only drawback is it can tempt to over indulgence, some hedonism and possibly some over confidence. Others/relationships can be the source of some of these dangers.
Provided one is wary of these possibilities, expansion is flagged up.

 Saturn provides some challenges now for those born February 27th- March 3rd. There is a feeling of stress and challenge emanating from work and there can be a need to challenge your own lack of confidence and possibly a need to rethink career if it is flagging up unacceptable realities. Some times it can just indicate a delay or block.. With patience or a rethink of strategy and goals and potentially a time to take stock, it can eventually bring real rewards

 Neptune is a real, but nebulous powerhouse now in the lives of those born March 1st –3rd.  There is real inspiration, hypersensitivity, spirituality and creative power bubbling, but there is also the concomitant danger of gullibility, vulnerability, over idealism, fantasy and potentially self-deception and lack of realism and sometimes-risky escapism. This influence hovers till early 2018, so be discriminating and use this sensitivity positively and don’t let it use you.

Pluto is a rewardingly positive influence on those born March 5th-8th.  Intelligent use of power and regenerative influences are yours in concert with others, for something you believe in.  This brings a new sense of self-reinvention and the power evoked needs to be conscious and used for the common good.

June 2016 astrological overview plus your horoscopes


 Mercury now direct will at the least help us to make some progress in all our lives, but Mars is stubbornly still in walkabout mode till the 29th … so much is on hold globally not least the uncertainty re the Brexit/Remain referendum in the UK. From late May, Mars returned back to Scorpio and continues in that sign till early August This is a quite ruthless position potentially and the power of it can be used for great good or great ill, depending on motive.. Motive is everything in life. However from the 29th there will be more security at the least of knowing where we stand in certain areas.

The tone of debate in Britain (and globally) will be increasingly adversarial/bitter and plain nasty, without moderation in mood as the battle between the in and out lobby intensifies throughout the month and even after the result is known. Mars (now seethingly retrograde till the end of this month and made more intense and ruthless being now in Scorpio) is England’s ruling planet (Aries rising) so the bitterness and divide between the warring factions will not abate and in fact the potential fallout will be ugly and reverberate with unpleasant results till at least early August.  Indeed globally there will be a sense that there are no limits to the potential intensity of the unpleasant in human behaviour, but with courage there will also be those who can fight for transformation and healing for the common good. Mars in Scorpio can be saint or sinner in manifestation.

England’s chart (25 December 1066, Midday) is indeed currently undergoing a real uncertain shake-up where the unexpected, rebellious and unpredictable reigns. i.e. Uranus , crossing the ascendant, (every 84 years). Also Pluto is conjunct its Mercury more or less all this year and next, (every 248 years) and that too signals a dramatic revolution and endings of chapters and certainly ideological fights to the metaphorical death. Mars is also currently opposing England’s Neptune. Smoke and mirrors and lack of clarity of facts and subterfuge rules. Even astrologers dare not predict outcomes with Uranus around (the phrase “predicting Uranus” is an oxymoron) but for good or ill, change is coming and not necessarily from the direction one expects and even if the “remain” school of thought wins, the cat is out of the bag in terms of dissent and almighty ideological power struggles, which will fester and cause much chaos and unrest.

 The British stiff upper lip will not prevail, with Uranus so huge in the mix. The fact is that globally there is a growing anger and rebellion against the establishment. Even the establishment is rebelling against the establishment. (And the establishment elite is getting as increasingly invisible as it is powerful)  Events in the UK will be very unsettling over the next year, with no room for complacency The assumptions we make about our stability and calm will be severely challenged.

The mitigating factor, if any, re the referendum, is that Jupiter will conjunct the Saturn and trine the Mercury of England’s chart, suggesting that some wisdom will prevail in the result on the day.

Days that are difficult are the 3rd-4th when the Sun and Venus opposes Saturn and also when Venus squares Neptune on the 3rd,, when smoke and mirrors are also around.  Mercury opposes Saturn on the 20th/21st and deceptiveness and uncertainties are also in the air too then, when Mercury squares Neptune.

More upbeat constructive days are around the 12th/ 13th when the Sun and Venus sextile Uranus and late month when Mercury trines Pluto and Venus trines Neptune.

The Moon is new on the 5th at 14 degrees of Gemini and the Moon is full on the 20th at 29 degrees of Sagittarius.

ARIES

 Focus is on communications and the power of conscious mind is a focus this month much of the month and before the 12th finances will also be a focus of thought. Before the 17th all will benefit by added heart to brain. After the 17th all born up to April 5th may be a little self indulgent and extravagant re home and family.

 Mars still in Scorpio and retrograde will also bring a sense of a need for privacy and depth of intensity re emotions and intimacy and also complex finances can preoccupy and frustrations can abound in this area and ruthlessness from self or others especially in finances are a possibility… After the 29th, there will be some clarifications and progress in financial areas.

Saturn is cooperative now, if demanding, for those born March 31st-April 4th. Hard work, shouldering responsibilities and being very mature pays off. Long distance and academic and legal issues require focus, but deferred gratification will be the benefit.

 Uranus is certainly stirring up the lives of those born April 12th-15th as Uranus brings a once every 84 year drive for freedom and change, and this may be thrust upon you.. Uranus awakens and enlightens, but a warning is to not be too impulsive and to not push the river… remain flexible and open, but with some watchfulness. This influence affects you on and off till next May, so see this as a journey for a while not an arrival.
 

Pluto is also bringing to those born April 5th-8th a sense  (since January this year and till late 2017) a sense of confrontation with self and others as you struggle for liberation from the powers of the past. Emancipation / empowerment calls and may well be needed and destiny calls… but done calmly, quietly, humbly and with dignity and with as little coercion as possible.

 TAURUS

 Personal security and finances need organised attention, but before the 12th many of you born after the May 7th may find an intense need for communication and your pragmatic.  However very significantly, Mars is now in your opposite sign of Scorpio and remains retrograde there till the 29th. Those most affected are born 13th-18th. For this group there will be a sense of aggression or passive aggression emanating from others or the world in general. Frustration by or from others is hard to shift and it will be important to be controlled but nit totally repressive of feelings or discomfort or anger or this can result in a seething quality of rage or internalise anger which equals depression.. Get feelings out calmly to the right person at the right time and in the right place or uncontrolled explosive outbursts can be damaging. Delays are inevitable and a sends of paralysis is around till the 29th.

Jupiter however provides comfort protection and opportunity for those born May 4th-8th.. This is a good time for celebrating life and love and enjoyment is in the air. Creativity and children are sources of joy and progress too. Happy travel may also flag up. At the least protection is around.

Neptune is pleasantly influencing those born April 30th-May 3rd and will be till February 18th. This brings idealism, emotional sensitivity and extra creative talents and empathy and support from friends.. It is also bringing a less materialistic stance in your life and the heart and the spiritual needs and values are stronger. Giving up ones ego on the altar of the greater good is an impetus. Music and film and the sea are sources of joy and peace.

Pluto is regenerative and empowering now to those born May 6th-9th. This once every 124 year angular relationship brings a fated sense of new opportunity for development related to higher learning, long distance issues or legal issues.  A sense of destiny calls and courage and strength is given to believe in ones own potential.

GEMINI

 Your birthday period is a time of new starts and a new birth of potential. . From the 12th all of you will feel at some point inspired to communicate and express oneself more than usual. Your mind is on overdrive but listen to others too.  Before the17th Venus in your sign will bring for those born after May 29th a sense of increased attractiveness, lovingness and charm and creative gifts are enhanced.. Love can be in the air. Money can be freer flowing for some of you after the 17th.

 Mars retrograde in Scorpio may be bringing issues at work that are frustrating and some health issues can reduce physical activity.

Jupiter may be tempting those born June 4th-8th to be a little over confident or over indulgent. Enjoy, but in moderation.  Beware pushing your luck.

 Saturn is quite challenging now for those born June 1st-5th, as he was last January.

There will be some blocks from others and reality checks to deal with and a necessity to rethink ideas projects and others. Tiredness and a need to look after one’s body is necessary. Things are onerous but you need to step up to the Saturn is a benevolent despot.

Uranus is stimulating a need to be authentic and more liberated and more maverick if born June 14th-17th… working with others for a cause you believe in can be really inspiring and your intuition is powerful now. Others are catalysts for growth and freedom and you are a catalyst for others now too,. You can start to really think outside the box. This lasts on and off till early 2018.

 If born  June1st-4th, career and public standing issues and possibly authority figures are things to be aware of in terms of potential confusions, deceptions and misunderstandings. Also there may well be a sense of over idealism and self-deception too. Keep grounded and get rest too. Escapism of a negative sort is very possible too and needs watching.  There could also be a divine discontent with career and a need to more true to your heart and ideals may be a driving force behind any discontent.

The new Moon on the 5th directly affects those born round June that day; a day for new beginnings. The full Moon on the 20th will impact all born round June 19th/20th.
For this group there will be a sense that others bring surprise and some sense of change to your door, that has the implication of an ending of a chapter..

CANCER

 Communication with others in a group or with friends is enhanced before the 12th if born after July 8th. After the 12th privacy of thought and communication is emphasised.. Behind scenes issues are important to deal with.

Venus after the 17th brings for all born up to July 7th a feeling of warmth and affection from self is strong and is received from others. Your natural charisma is enhanced and love life can be stimulated. Creativity is also enhanced.  Mars is currently in positive relationship to the Suns of those born after July 15th. This can really stimulate the power of passion and artistic /creative drives.  Your determination and courage is strong, but your actions and those of others that are in your life however may be subtle and indirect and after the 29th, the results and real meaning of these passions manifest…

Jupiter is a support now if born July 5th-9th.  It brings extra wisdom and enhanced communication skills. People listen to you and this is good for travel locally or long distance.  There is intellectual luck and good news in the ether. This brings opportunities to grab …. a feel good factor.

 Uranus is continuing till early 2018, to be a tad disruptive to those born July 15th-18th.  Changes at work or a sense of uncertainty about your career direction is in the air ..   The innovative will be born as a result of this journey.. if in the eight direction you will be safe on your path despite stormy weather, if not in the right place for you , change will evolve of necessity… it is a journey . Hold tight and see where it takes you.

 Pluto more profoundly is directly affecting still those born July 7th-10th till the end of next year.  This is a time of potential power struggles and you need to stand up with dignity and draw boundaries round dark influences and not be tainted by them. Face the dark, but move into the light.  Endings of chapters are in the air and phoenixes can really rise from the ashes. Avoid and walk away from manipulative people with dark agendas and be very conscious of your own deep unconscious powers that can be abusive to others or attract those people who reflect this. That which we are conscious of, we can control; but that which we aren’t, controls us.


  LEO

 Being around others and working with them for a common cause is a feature of this month as are buoyant happy friendships.  Beware before the 12th if born after August 9th, beware of not thinking before communicating especially at work   and before the 17th if born after July 31st , sociability and love life is enhanced by your affectionate nature and charms.

Mars is a bit of a challenging influence now if born after August 15th. Being retrograde till the 29th there is a sense that you are feeling alone, frustrated and with inner anger and frustration re home /family issues. Paralysis of knowing how to move forward is in the air and a sense of thwarted anger as it is all so complicated. Fixity on your and others part is characteristic and impatience is your enemy.  Be still and know that delays to action are right now. Huge inner stamina is yours however .. and spiritual growth is needed via reflection rather than through impatient direct action. Do not seethe as it damages the body. Let go and wait till late month when things ease.

 For those born August 15th-18th.. Uranus is really inspiring you to wake up to new thinking, new travels, new beliefs and a need for new freedoms. Your intuition is in action and there is a sense of being able to think divergently in order to liberate yourself into a more appropriate chapter. Opportunities for travel and to study new and unusual areas (including metaphysical subjects) are likely. This lasts till early 2018 so there is a way to go.

 VIRGO

Career is a focus this month, but before the 12th if born after September7th may find travel and travel plans and academic endeavours are much in your mind. After the 20th if born up to September 2nd social life takes on an increased energy and friends are there for you to talk to fruitfully and help you shine and after the 17th if born up to September 9th love life and friendships can be linked and social occasions are a real pleasure.

 Mars in Scorpio again is certainly firing the passions of the forensic mind and researcher of those born after September 15th-and there is a sense of determination to get heard and any form of communications are vigorous, determined, constructive and powerfully effective, but the nature of Mars being retrograde also suggests that there is a feeling of not getting fully understood or listened to as proactively as you would wish. Intensity of communication however should not be underestimated.

 Jupiter is very happily in your own sign now and currently gracing the lives of those born September 6th-10th. For this group, there is a distinctly upbeat feel to life. Confidence and growth, inner or outer, is in the air and travel too is underlined.  Family issues also have a feel good factor and luck and protection is around.

 By contrast Saturn is challenging those that are born September 3rd-7th.. There are some feelings of block and tiredness and there is also a need to face some facts that are difficult related to real estate or home issues. There is a need to review certain issues and rethink things that have met a blockage. Some issues mat catch up with you that are karmic in some way and are meant to be a learning curve… Delays need to be met with humility and a philosophical approach. Look after your body, as you are reminded that you are not getting younger. Pluto is also empowering those born September 8th-11th currently (till end of 2017). Confidence, courage and initiative taking, is within your power and it makes much possible creatively, romantically and in any issues to do with offspring.  A new sense of courage, destiny and self-reinvention is yours.

Neptune is now also opposing the Suns of those born September 3rd –6th. This is a period till early 2018 and which brings danger of deceptive circumstances and behaviour from others and a tendency to be easily allured by others’ promises and appearances… Check the small print in all agreements and don’t believe everything you see or feel, as rose coloured spectacles are possibly dominating your perceptions. However this is brilliant for creativity, notably music and film. Beware seeming gurus..


LIBRA.

Travel and academic concerns are in the forefront this month.  All October born Libras may well feel before the17th, a strong pleasure re love and affections especially if linked to travel /holidays/long distance. Mars in Scorpio may put focus on finances in quite as assertive way.

 Saturn is constructive if demanding for all born October 3rd-7th, serious mature and grounded pragmatic thinking is demanded and loyalty and duty is favoured possibly to siblings. There is also a more conservative instinct at play. Hard work now brings deferred gratification.

 Uranus is currently opposing the Suns of those born around October 17th and this will be in the ether till aprox February 2018. There is a feeling that an unpredictable journey starting and sense of adrenalin and change coming from changing circumstance and change brought to life by others’ decisions actions.   Keep adaptable and flexible and accept that this period brings a kick-start into a future that seems a bit daunting, but will ultimately be liberation, even if unnerving, as change happens. Change is inevitable so don’t fight it too much, but hang onto what you really know you need to and which is not just an old comfy slipper situation.

Pluto too is quite a big player now in the lives of those born October 9th-12th and this has been underway for a few months and stays in play till the beginning of 2018.

 For this group there is a sense of some inner and outer power struggles. Family and domestic circumstances may be a sort of battle ground and one needs to be very conscious of past and its power of you and a conscious sense of controlling ones deep issues that are needing examination and understanding and so controlled well, to enable a new empowerment of the real potential within, without coercion, and without ruthless power struggles, but with calm, kind determination to do what will benefit your potential all round without damaging others.

 SCORPIO

 Intimacy and complicated finances are a focus possibly in a very private way…  After the 12th, all will find it very fruitful to choose to communicate fully with others in an advantageous way.   After the 17th all born up to November 9th, may find that love and pleasure and sociability flourishes whilst travelling and in a long distance context and love of learning is underlined with love and learning also maybe mixed.

Mars is currently in your sign, a powerful influence notably now if born after November 14th. This brings power; ambition, determination and even an obsessive feel to behaviour. There is however an added dimension as Mars is retrograde now, so the determination and power is internalised and even quite seething in power and even rather indirect, or passive aggressive possibly in some way .. Patience is needed and it is important to be quietly patent with the frustrations and paralysis that seems to prevail until the 29th, when with relief moves forward and issues really start to manifest in a much clearer if dramatic way.


Neptune is very fortuitous now in a gentle way for those born 3rd –5th..  It brings idealism and empathy and the power of the heart /emotions to bear.  It stimulates empathy as well as creativity and the arts and love of nature are enlarged in your needs and consciousness.. It is powerful for music and film and brings a real longing for a soul mate romantically and indeed children can be a source of great joy and inspiration. This once every aprox 82 years event downgrades the material and scourges the spiritual.

Pluto, your ruler is certainly powerfully energising in a very fundamental, positive way to those born November 7th-10th.  Your thinking will be more profound and forensic than normal and deep serious truths will be confronted and looked into and conversations will be more intense and your words and communications are definitely more effective and far-reaching to others than usual.  This lasts till early 2018, so be aware of its advantages. This is no time for superficiality, but intelligent insight and resultant power.

 SAGITTARIUS

 Relationships are very much flagged up and others are movers and shakers of your life and impact you significantly. And before the 17th all December born Sagittarius are also likely to be extra touched by romance; and enhanced affections to and from others in general.

 Mars in your solar 12th house may be being some real private strength of feeling that can be resentment and pent up anger, which can be dangerous or even harmful. Internalised anger equals depression. After the 29th Mars goes direct, bringing much relief and clarity, possibly with some uncomfortable outcomes, but tension eases at least.

Jupiter is currently squaring the Suns of those born December 5th-9th. . Be wary of overconfidence or even arrogance or expecting too much of life or self especially related to career. A bit of caution and humility will server you well and then the best of Jupiter will show. Extravagance, especially re travel may be part of the picture.

Saturn still in your sign (for 2 and a half years in total) is now (as last January) is targeting those born December 2nd-6th.   This causes a potential tiredness and need to tae extra care of the body. It can also bring negativity and reality checks and blocks and frustrations to progress too. A need to review and rethink is necessary and work done now and necessary reorganisation undertaken will serve you well in the future.. Saturn is a karmic schoolteacher and benevolent despot.

Uranus is however, for those born December 15th-18th, bringing a long period till early 2018, of new exciting change that bring a new dimension to your interests and your life potential. Hang loose and don’t be intimidated by new opportunities that seem quite left field. You are waking up to a new dimension, especially creatively, romantically and round children’s issues.

Neptune is currently squaring the Suns  (every 82 years) of those born December 2nd-5th. a care is needed to keep grounded but realise a metamorphoses is underway till  February 2018. You are floating from one phase of life and being to another without compass or oars.. All is uncertain, and uncharted.. This is meant to be a time to trust the trade winds, but not be over idealistic and escapist but allow your self to let go of some tight control. Learn to be a human being rather than just a human doing…  You are vulnerable to some disillusionment, but this is because the path needs to change a little in order to meet your new sensitivities and emerging talent, which are likely to be creative or humanitarian and empathetic.

The Moon is full on the 20th directly affecting those born around December 21st.  For these people, there is a sense of denouement and eruptions from others that point the way to a new chapter, sought after or not.  The power of the unconscious will not be repressed. The new Moon on the 5th will impact those born round December 6th. This suggests m a fresh new chapter that may be triggered by the actions/words of another.



 CAPRICORN

 Work /routine and health may be important focus this month.   Before the 12th all born after January 6th, may also be much preoccupied with artistic input in life and love life and offspring are a source of joy and you are in communicative, sociable mood. After the 17th all born up to January 7th will feel the power of others warmth and love very much enhancing life. Cupid is in the ether,

 Mars strong in Scorpio now, is bringing to those born after January 12th a powerful sociable, influence and leadership skills.. Other people are facilitating your power because of their own strong position and your influence on others to work for a communal cause with determination is notable, but you are also till the 29th, aware of the frustrations within, as your power is somehow sabotaged, be patient as from the 29th, things really start to drive forward.  You are no shrinking violet now.

Jupiter is your buddy now and supportive from Virgo, notably if born January 4th-8th.
This is an excellent time for teaching learning and all communications re the higher mind and academia and is very helpful for exams etc .. It also is very beneficial for travel and and legal issues.

 Uranus is currently challenging the lives of those born around January 13th-15th. He is creating a sense of real restlessness and uncertainly re home /real estate /family issues. It is hard to settle. All is in flux and this will be around you till around February next year. The new and outside the box is in the air and a sense of a bit of an unknown future is around you. Keep adaptable as this is a journey that is as much an unknown quantity as anything else, and provided you are not impulsive or rash re change and because of your adrenalised state, it can really bring the new and the enlightening into your life.

 Neptune is quite emotionally creatively and spiritually inspiring if born January 1st –4th for some time to come (early next year). You are thinking/feeling more with you heart now, than your head.  You are very emotionally sensitive.

 Finally Pluto is huge in lives now of those born Jan 6th-9th. Destiny and power of self and or others drives you now. Please be aware that you are not the owner, but the steward f the power and motive must be for greater good. Avoid coercion and abusive power, follow a responsible destiny and by the end of 2018 you will really know what it is all about.

 AQUARIUS

 A month for fun and enjoying life with creativity and romance underlined. Fertility/ artistic abilities can be strong.  Also speculative instincts may be accentuated.. This is a month to develop any latent artistic abilities and to let you hair down a little with others. Children of mind and body can be a great source of fulfilment too.  Extra extroversion is a quality that may surprise you now.

 Mars however is a bit of a bogus figure now especially if born after February 12th.. Be wary of over assertiveness in career or stubborn intent that may be unwise. You are not in the mood to be flexible and it could be not a good stance, so too others could be causing you stress with their coercion and rather insidious controlling behaviour.. This energy can be quite seething and rather underhand and ruthless in self, or from others, so beware. Impatience and intransigence and obsessive qualities can be very counterproductive too and inner frustration/anger can affect your health. Authority figures should not be underestimated. Beware abusive power around you. After the 29th the outcomes of issues break through and it may be quite surprising.

Saturn is cooperative if stern now for those born January 31st- February 5th. He is demanding disciplined hard work, maturity and focus.  Loyalty to friends and collective causes are underlined and you need to step up to the plate, which will serve you well if you do.  Pragmatism and grounded ness serves you well now even if a demanding period, you rise to the occasion.

 Uranus your own ruling planet is very much a positive player bringing out your Aquarian uniqueness, if born February 11th-14th.

 You are able to think divergently and laterally and others bring awakening concepts to your mind, life and door and you are also a catalyst for awakening for others. The liberating is around and that suits you well and you maverick side is well directed now and this influence is every 42 years and lasts till around February 2018, so don’t rush the energy, but enjoy the journey.

 PISCES

Some energy may feel a little difficult round home and family /real estate and there is a need to focus on those areas in many respects, especially with real and clear communications before the 12th if born after March 6th. After the 17th all born up to March 7th have a boost to your natural creative skills and romance and good times are indicated.

 Mars is also on your side now, even though retrograde till the 29th. He is empowering the higher mind and bringing energy, courage and determination to study, travel and ideological issues.  You are a force to be reckoned with over your beliefs and your passions.  However some of the energy is internalised till late month, so be careful about it s hidden internalised power.

Jupiter is currently bringing a temptation to indulge and lack moderation in many things, especially in relationships, if born March 4th-8th.  Enjoy, by all means, but have some caution… and be wary of people promising more than they can deliver including yourself, but others from very different backgrounds and cultures can enrich your life now. Travel is flagged up too.

 Saturn however is bringing some negative mood or block or lack of confidence now if born March 1st –5th. Work can be onerous or lacking satisfaction and this is a time to step back and see what changes need making and whether you need to rethink some goals and also to look after your body, as it needs more rest than usual. Humility, but not collapse of confidence, is needed.

 However to compound the issue Neptune your ruling planet is never more powerful than it is now if born March 1st to 4th (every 165 years) This brings idealism (over idealism probably) and heart felt desires and even a great desire for escapism. This can make a simultaneous Saturn reality check difficult, but it is definitely a time to ask if you heart and soul and creativity is being expressed enough in life and if not, maybe you need to redress the balance..   Also it is possible that Saturn is ensuring that you are keeping sufficiently grounded and that you are not getting into dangerous Neptunian deceptive or over escapist or over idealistic territory.

Finally Pluto is very helpful and confidence bringing if born March 6th-9th. . You are getting a sense now till late 2017; of the destiny you can embrace when it comes to regenerating others and by so doing, your own life, by collective work with powerful others. Know your healing power!
