AUGUST 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


All month Jupiter is squaring up to Pluto. This does indicate a period that globally is predominantly dominated by ruthless egos that care only about steamrollering (vanity) projects through for their own gains, with not much concern for the greater good. However such behaviour does attract rebellion from those who feel threatened, by any perceived abuse of power, so power struggles ensue, and unrest, at the least, is unleashed.

Till 19th Mars is still hanging around the Sun by conjunction, hence ambition is rife as are aggressive noises, if not action. So the globe is still in a tricky period as far as impulse and ruthlessness is concerned.

However the unpredictable is less rife than it was last month.

Mercury in Virgo does move into retrograde motion from the 13th and remains in retreat till September 5th.  For many this will feel like a period of frustration, delay and blocks . It can also correlate with travel disruption and and technological hiccups. Misunderstandings and confusions are also potentially rife. This period is best seen as an oportunity to rethink and revise plans and projects Getting angry and impatient is a waste of an opportunity to take time out to look at a bigger picture , pause and revise.

 On cue, as his chart clearly shows, Trump’s troubles seemed to start to be significantly underlined last month, as his son was revealed to be embroiled in controversy relating to the whole Russian election interference scandal and the internal war in the White House.  Saturn started in early July to exactly conjunct Trump’s natal Moon in 5th house i.e. trouble re children and challenge from the past as the Moon rules his 12th house. This every 30 year Saturn assault on his Moon by conjunction and opposing his Sun, more or less simultaneously, continues till half way through October. His health, both physical and mental is potentially under strain as is his political standing. This would be a very karmically difficult time for anyone. People, who withstand this, IF their conscience is clear, are usually, at the very least, humbled, as there is a realisation of the huge difficulties of a certain task/role/job they are involved in, as the realities of the challenges hit home hard. Without humility, any guilty past comes home to haunt with a vengeance under these transits. Events through till late October, in his presidency, will create a nemesis that lays the foundations that determine his ultimate presidential status.

There are 2 eclipses this month. On the 7th there is a partial Lunar eclipse at 15 degrees of Aquarius.
This is powerful in so far as it signifies endings of chapter in quite a powerful way, personally and globally, for significant numbers of people.

The total Solar eclipse on the 21st is at 28 degrees of Leo. This will be visible strongly in many parts across the USA.  Significantly, it is virtually exactly conjunct Trump’s ascendant and Mars in Leo.  This will impact him strongly, as, despite current challenges, he will feel a new surge of a rebellious confidence to compensate for his problems and any humiliations he has felt. This is likely to encourage him to indulge in even rather more compensatory rash and ruthless behaviour and he will be extremely likely to throw his weight about and enemies should beware. This however ultimately may prove for him to be hubris too far.

Interestingly and unusually Trump was born at the time of a lunar eclipse… and because his Moon in Sagittarius, therefore conjuncts his south node, this indicates that, by becoming so involved in politics, he is ideologically adopting ambitions in this life, that are connected to past stubborn views, which are outworn and which need to be left behind. Despite his posturing, he may well realise, that his best road in life was probably to have remained in the business world, as his ability to cope ideologically with a swiftly changing globe and its needs is likely to be sorely lacking. 

 Globally, July was very Uranian and Martian   and August is still very Martian, hence increased global desires to flirt with war and the recent trend towards increasingly totalitarian regimes and ambitions towards dictatorship by political leaders, have been and are very self evident.

Whether one looks at the UK constitution’s chart for 1st January 1801 or England’s chart for 25th December1066, this benighted land is also going through crisis, not least economic or in international dealings now and for the coming few years. No surprise there. Teresa May has Neptune still transiting by conjunction her Mars and this once every 165-year transit will undoubtedly now and till the beginning of 2019, at the least humble her and if she manages to hang on to her position, it will disempower her significantly. She will also, professionally, not be able to trust those around her, as deceptions and disloyalty are in the air.

The most unpredictable and chaotic days this month are around the 24/25th when Venus squares Uranus, and intense and possibly rather dark days are around the 16th when Venus opposes Pluto. 
However with 2 eclipses, this month on the 7th and 21st, there will be some game changers on our planet this month, possibly rather intensely so on the 7th.


ARIES

 August for you is a time of enjoyment.   It’s party time; when you can take the initiative, have fun and be extrovert.  Romance is also more flagged up

It is important however, after the 13th, for many of you, to ensure there are no misunderstandings and miscommunications, or alternative facts haunting you at work. 

Before the 26th, you may all be tempted to be rather self-indulgent on the home and family front.  Good times are around, but curb extravagance.   After the 26th if born up to 30th, affections and passions are stimulated, as is creativity.

All born from March 28th to April 17th will be in a very constructive, energised mood, particularly romantically and creatively, as Mars stimulates you to action and positivity.

Jupiter is currently opposing the Suns of those born April 5th to 12th.  For this group, travel is very much on the cards, happy vacations; and also relationships are particularly abundant.  The only downside is over-confidence, over-indulgence and letter other people influence you a little too much. 

Saturn, however, is very constructive and mature if born April 10th to 12th.  It is good for study, serious communications, and legal matters and for long distance business. 

Uranus, still in your sign, is now directly impacting, as he was last month, those of you born around April 17th to 19th.  This influence, which will last on and off until May next year, is definitely one of restlessness and change and happens only every 84 years.  Acknowledge it, accept it, but do not be too impulsive.  Let the change happen to you.  Don’t force it. A more humanitarian and maverick attitude is growing.  You are looking outside the box. 

However, for those born around April 6th to 8th, you are in the final chapter of the transit that has been affecting you since March 2016 and it will be over by the end of this year; and it is one where there has been some internal struggle with yourself in order to gain your own rightful power and where you have possibly been in an external power struggle with someone, connected to work or career.  Very deep stuff has been dug up for you, so that you are recognising the need to assert your own uniqueness, individuality and independence and autonomy.  This is now under way towards a successful conclusion, provided you keep squeaky clean, are not coercive and what you are doing, you know is for the greater good. 


TAURUS

August is a month which focuses very much on home and family for your sign; and from the 13th, when Mercury moves retrograde, which he is until the 5th September, there a need just to be sure that communications in love life and with one’s offspring are allowing no room for misunderstandings; and maybe some re-thinking of plans in any speculative venture is possible, but it would be constructive.

Before the 26th, all of you will be able to utilise your charms in communications and your creativity is flagged up and harmony with siblings is underlined.  Your heart and your mind combine well. 

After the 26th, all born up to April 28th may be tempted to be lavish in their attentions and spending on home and family. Family celebrations or gatherings are indicated

However, Mars is in Leo, and therefore stressful to some extent, to those born April 27th to May 18th.  For this group, one need to be a little aware that there may well be some impatience and impulsiveness on your part and you may be a little like a bull in a china shop at home, or alternatively others on the home or family front may well be over-reactive and over assertive to you.  Also, stop and count to ten before doing anything risky, particularly at home, as you are slightly more lacking in caution in action and word, which potentially can make you a little metaphorically and literally accident prone.  Also, beware over-fixity and lack of flexibility when dealing with others.

Neptune is currently bringing a dose of hypersensitivity and empathy to those born May 3rd to 5th.  This has been in the ether for you since April and continues to affect you in this way until the beginning of 2019, and this once every approximately 82 year transit is bringing a gentleness, a sensitivity, a spirituality and a humanitarian sensibility to your door.  It is also excellent of the arts, particularly music and film.  Your heart centre is very important now. 

Pluto is currently, as he has been since March 2016, finalising his trine to you Sun, if born May 7th to 10th.  This transformative, regenerative and self-re-invention influence from Pluto is truly inspiring in terms of philosophical understandings, insights, travel, long distance associations and academic study.  It also gives courage, strength and belief in self and joy.


GEMINI

The summer month of August is very good for Gemini’s mind.  Communication will be important to you in a very positive way. However, your ruler, Mercury does move retrograde on the 13th and remains such until the 5th September.  All of you will need to be aware, particularly if born up to June 3rd, that family communications especially, can be the source of frustration.  Lack of clarity and uncertainty is underlined. 

After the 6th, if born up to May 29th, there is a need to have a little self-control over excessive spending and indulgence.  After the 26th, heart and mind combine for all born up to May 28th. Communication skills will be excelling

Mars however, is for those born May 28th to June 18th, giving a real constructive assertiveness to your thoughts and your speech and your communications.  You are a good negotiator.  Arguments will rarely be lost and you will enjoy a good debate.  Energy is strong and constructive.

Also, for all born June 6th to 13th, Jupiter is bringing blessings of optimism; positivity, travel, happiness, creativity and love life and affections are underlined.  A new confidence and optimism is in the air. 

However, Saturn is once again haunting those born June 11th to 13th, as he did at the end of December 2016, early January 2017.  For some weeks, there will be a sense of some block, restriction, a need to re-think goals and reality checks around situations and people that need to be taken seriously.  It is also a time to be aware that you need to look after your body and get rest and not push yourself.  Delays now offer a good reason to re-assess plans.  Just don’t lose confidence and you will see people very clearly, warts and all.

Uranus, however, is still inspiring those born around June 19th to 21st and he will do, on and off, until May next year.  Quite simply, he is inspiring your desire to work with others for the greater good, bringing confidence in your own understanding, insights and need to have interests in life that reflect your inner intuition.  Friends will be catalysts for change and you are a catalyst for others as well.  You are being awoken and you are being enlightened to yourself and to others.

Finally Neptune is still bringing a note of caution to those born around June 3rd to 5th.  Idealism is strong, but if you are in the wrong job, you may find that you are longing for something better.  The need for creativity, the arts and nature is strong, but whatever you do, be careful that you don’t fall for anybody who is less than totally sincere and certainly avoid any attempts at sleight of hand, particularly at work.


CANCER

Finances may well be a healthy focus this month and be aware that from the 13th, with Mercury retrograde, that you think very carefully before you speak or write, or send an email etc.  Make sure that your words are totally clear. 

Before the 26th, Venus is in your sign.  This can only enhance your charms, your charisma and love and affection invades your life more than usual. 

Jupiter, currently in Libra, is bringing for those born July 7th to 15th, a sense of well-being, comfort and happiness, but also extravagance and possibly a little over-reaching, particularly connected to domestic issues, real estate and home.  Enjoy. 

Uranus, however, is still creating restlessness and the unpredictable in the lives of those born July 20th to 22nd and has been so doing since late June and will not be completely finished with his journey until May 2018.  This once every 42-year square to your Sun is bringing particularly restlessness and unpredictability in your working life.  It is a time where the need for change is strong and it may be forced upon you, or you may be choosing it, but either way, acknowledge it is something that ultimately will liberate you, even if the initial disruption is a little unnerving.  The time has come to be kick started into a newer, more appropriate future for you.

Neptune is still being very kind in his once every 84-year transit to the Suns of those born July 4th to 7th.  Since April 2017, still strong and with you until January 2019, there is a sense that your gradually evolving into an emotionally intelligent and more sensitive being. Your heart centre is stronger than ever, your idealism, your creativity and your empathy and sensitivity to others, particularly the downtrodden and the vulnerable is significant now.  Being near water, nature and through inspiring travel you are growing and heart centre is undeniable.

However, if born July 9th to 11th, Pluto is in his final lap of a transit that only happens once every 165 years; and which started in March 2016 and is going to be over by end of the year. This can involve an experience of confrontation with someone that has undoubtedly brought you to be in a stronger position, through your ability to handle it wisely.  Keep squeaky clean, draw boundaries and if necessary, walk away. 


LEO

Your month; and therefore there is a desire to be centre stage and to shine.

With Mercury now being in Virgo and retrograde from the 13th, there is however, a need for you all to be aware for the coming three weeks that finances may well be subject to confusion and misunderstandings in dealings.  Keep squeaky clean and crystal clear. 

Venus moves into your sign on the 26th, affecting those born up to July 30th.  For this group, from that date, there will be an added dollop of love and affection in your life and your own warmth and charm will be significantly greater than usual.

Mars is also in your sign this month, which one has to be a little bit cautious of, particularly if born July 29th to August 20th.  For this group there is a distinct need to differentiate between assertion and aggression in attitude.  You are determined.  You are ambitious and you are driven on all levels that can be very constructive, provided motive is good and ruthlessness is avoided.  There is however a chance that it is someone else who brings over-assertiveness to your door, but one has to ask if one has attracted it. 

Jupiter is benevolent now if born August 8th to 15th.  He is bringing wisdom, support, luck, positivity and confidence. 


Saturn is being supportive in a different and constructive way with maturity and discipline and reality if born August 13th to 15th.  Hard work will pay off; as will obligation and duty to those one loves.

Uranus is also inspiring now; and been since the end of June; and will continue to be, on and off until May 2018, for all born August 20th to 22nd.  Long distance issues, study, travel, legal issues and academic pursuits can be truly inspiring and life changing and awaken you to new understandings and insights which can be liberating.  Other people may well be catalysts for this and relationships can certainly bring a refreshing input into your life.  Many of you will be able to see a bigger picture beyond your own subjectivity.

 If born around August 7th-9th the lunar eclipse on the 7th, may be quite an important dat . A time of eruptive endings or insights that can be quite powerful in affecting your insights and realisations about self and others.

If born around August 21st, the solar eclipse on the 21st will potentially bring a sense of a rejuvenation of the new and where difficult issues can get catapulted somehow away. This can feel like a sort of safety valve.



Virgo

Some alone time can be beneficial this month and privacy and behind the scenes dealing can dominate. 

However, Mercury, your ruling planet in your sign, does move retrograde from the 13th and stays that way until the 5th of September.  That would imply that all born up to September 5th need to be particularly conscientious about the possibility of delay, disruptions in communications, misunderstandings and failed messages.  All communication systems can let you down.  Keep on your toes. 

From the 26th, for all of you, friendships and collective activities with others can be really inspiring and love and friendship can somehow combine or morph from one to the other.  You are popular.  Enjoy.

It may be worth pointing out that because Mars is in your 12th House this month, it is important not to sit on any resentment or anger and let is seethe.  Get it out calmly to the right person, in the right place, at the right time. 

Saturn however, is a little tricky now, as he was indeed last December/January, if born September 13th to 15th.  This position will feel quite frustrating to this group.  Obligations, responsibilities and reality checks are around you, possibly to do with family and domestic situations.  You need to look after your health and pace yourself, as tiredness and lack of confidence can get the better of you.  Don’t see the cup too much as half empty, but with some hard work and discipline and facing reality, you can actually make progress, even if it is delayed. 

Neptune is currently, as he has been since April this year, opposing the Suns, in his once every 165-year transit, of those born September 5th to 7th.  This will be around you until January 2019 and a long subtle transit of Neptune does bring changes.  When it’s an opposition you have to be very aware that you are much more vulnerable to other people’s dishonesty or lack of black and white motive than usual.  You are also likely to put people on pedestals, or be drawn to victims.  You are not seeing people clearly or in a realistic way.  Check the credentials of everybody and get advice from others who are very grounded.  However, you will long for harmony and beauty, but be careful about negative escapist behaviour. 

However, if born September 9th to 11th, you will have a new found sense of empowerment, transformation, belief in self and confidence, notably creatively and in love life.  Enjoy.  This influence is with you until January of next year and has been building.


LIBRA

Your mind is sharp this month and communications abound in a successful way, but like everybody, after the 13th, you need to be aware that delays and blocks are actually opportunities to re-think things.

Before the 26th, Venus in your sign is a little warning that one has to be careful about any sycophantic behaviour in your working life.  Your charms can help, but don’t overdo it.

After the 26th, if born up to September 30th, friendships can be very benefiting and love life too can inspire.  Working with and for others is pleasing. 

Mars is giving a boost of energy to those born September 30th to October 21st.  Your leadership skills and your ability to coordinate other people and your determination to achieve your goals, particularly if they involve large groups will be admirable and effective.  Energy, on all levels is strong and constructive.

Jupiter, still in your sign, is now blessing those born October 9th to 16th.  Excellent for travel, good times, celebrations, happiness, and luck; and at the very least if there are any problems in your life, he will bring a mitigating factors.  The cavalry arrives.

Even Saturn is currently bringing, for those born October 14th to 16th, a sense of maturity, courage, determination, hard work and insightful wisdom, which brings bonuses later. It is deferred gratification. 

Uranus, however, is strongly now in his once every 84 Opposition to the Suns of those born October 21st to 23rd, a new sense of turbulence, possibly in relationships.  Other people are affecting you and are catalysts for change, disruption, for awakening and enlightening, even if it is uncomfortable.  This need for change is inevitable and although it may come from outside you, it is flagging up a destined time to realise that a new chapter does wait; and it will not be over until May of 2018.  Keep flexible, see this as a journey and don’t lose faith in the fact that it will kick-start you into a new, better future.  Be patient and calm.

However, if born October 10th to 12th, you are in the final chapter, over by the end of the year, of a transit from Pluto since last March 2016, which has been disruptive.  Endings of chapters have been possible and you have needed to emancipate yourself in a certain situation that was oppressive; and provided you are squeaky clean, did not in any way abuse power or sink to manipulative means, this will ultimately be a time of finding your true strength.


SCORPIO

Your personal reputation and public standing is flagged up this month.  Ensure you don’t let over-confidence or arrogance blemish that.  Be aware that from the 13th you will all need to be acutely aware that communications can go astray and blocks and restrictions on plans are possible, so double check everything; and particularly when arranging plans with friends.

Before the 26th, Venus in Cancer augurs extremely well for you all in terms of love life and travel going hand in hand.  Fulfilment and happiness is also possible in academic pursuits and love life can be very rewarding. 

After the 26th, if born up to October 31st, have a caution that you are not disingenuous at work, in order to gain favour. 

Mars in Leo is bringing for all those born October 31st to November 20th, a rather over-assertive impatience, and impulsive quality.  Again professionally; and equally others in authority may have a rather over-aggressive attitude towards you.  Stopping and counting to 10 before responding will be helpful and do also look before you leap.  There is tremendous fixity in your life now; and an inability to compromise.  Flexibility, as hard as it might be, could be your saviour.

 For all born around November 5th-7th, Neptune has, since April 2017 and will, until January 2019, been bringing a journey into your consciousness of greater empathy, sensitivity and huge artistic inspiration. Caring and putting other people’s needs first will have become important.  Your heart centre has expanded, appreciation of music, the arts, the sea, nature have all possibly taken you by surprise in their intensity.  Almost psychic connection with others will have rewarded relationships, not least in love life and with children. 

Pluto, your ruler, is also continuing until the end of the year his journey that started in March 2016, for those born November 9th to 11th.  This journey has brought insight, power, a forensic mind, truth telling, impressive communications, power over others in a positive way, regeneration and transformative insight, which has brought you respect.  Remember you are the agent, not the owner of the power.


SAGITTARIUS

August is a particularly good time for your sign for vacations and travel.

Mercury moves retrograde on the 13th which does suggest that after that dates you may need to pay much attention to ensuring that all communications are thoroughly understood in your working context.  It also suggests blocks and delays in achieving and communications between the 13th and the 5th September.  Don’t assume people have got messages or you have received them.  Frustrations can abound, so get things sorted before the 13th

After the 26th, if born up to November 30th, harmony and love is in the air, particularly when travelling and great appreciation of study of the arts.

Mars is also very complimentary now to those born November 30th to December 19th.  Passions are aroused.  Determination and constructive energies, particularly connected to study, long distance issues and legal issues.  Your forthright views are sound and get listened to and you can make a difference. 

Jupiter is also harmonious now for those born December 7th to 14th.  Friends and social life figure strongly and happily.  Your goals are given a boost.  Confidence is aroused and optimistic positivity.  Remember your ruler is Jupiter. 

Saturn, however has been in your sign for many moons and is now re-visiting the Suns of those born December 12 to as he has been doing since late July and will continue to be in that position until the end of September.  For this group, there is a challenge to face facts, deal with reality, work hard on a very practical level, step up to the plate and create an infrastructure for yourself through hard work, based on reality, but get rest.  Look after the body and don’t let the challenges defeat you. 

Uranus is inspiring however to those born December 20th and 21st.  This transit will be around, on and off, until February 2019.  Once in every 42 years this energy affects you and is brilliant for awakening you to your uniqueness, your creative abilities and your true humanitarian spirit.  You don’t do convention. You do inspired individualism and it can set you free. 

However, if born December 4th to 6th, keep grounded, keep real.  Do not trust too much and know you are going into a much more spiritual phase of life.


CAPRICORN

You may have to dig deep this month into complex issues to do with relationships, intimacy and finances.  This is not a time for superficiality. 

After the 13th, until September 5th, it is a good idea to double check all travel arrangements and long distance communications and legal issues, as delays, frustrations and confusion can be in the air.  Having said that, your mind, provided you take those issues into account, is sharp.

Before the 26th, all of you have Venus going through your Solar 7th House bringing bonuses of love and affection from others and you give as you receive.  People are a blessing. 

However, if born January 6th to 13th, be careful not to be over confident and ensure that you do not bite off more than you can chew, or show any arrogance in your career.  Don’t over-compensate for deep-rooted lack of confidence with a veneer of too much.

Uranus is, in his once every 42 years Square to your Sun, affecting all those born around January 18th to 20th and will be so doing on and off until March 2019.  This will bring restlessness and a desire for change, particularly domestically and unexpected events connected to home and family are possibly on the cards.  Rebellion, a need for the new, away from conservatism or total safety is rising in your being.  Your own individuality is being strongly stimulated.  Just be careful that you do not act rashly or impulsively just for the sake of change.  Consider carefully.

Neptune however is very inspiring if born January 3rd to 5th.  Inspiration from the arts and spirituality is strong, as is increased sensitivity to others.  Your psychic side a developing and your empathy and compassion should not be underestimated.  This is with you until early 2019.  Use is to develop your creative and spiritual skills and sensitivities.  Your heart is expanding.

Finally, Pluto is continuing on his long journey to conjunct the Suns of those born January 7th to 9th.  This long journey, every 248 years, has been underway since March 2016 and is in his final lap, over by the end of the year.  For this group, there is a sense of power, change, and transformation, possibly meltdowns followed by phoenixes out of the ashes. Remember to use your power wisely for the greater good and be careful whom you mix with.  Draw boundaries and walk away if necessary. 


AQUARIUS

This month focuses on the significant others in your life and they may be taking the lead and that’s ok. 

With Mercury retrograde from the 13th to the 5th September, it is very important that you ensure that your business arrangements, particularly financially, are clear-cut.  Frustrations and delays abound however.  Reconsider strategy and make sure you have clarity with those you deal with, particularly financially.

After the 26th, all born up to January 27th will be experiencing the potential benefits of cupid, but at least the good hearts of those around you.  People bring good things. 

However, Mars is in your opposite sign, affecting all those born January 26th to February 16th.  This entire group need to have an awareness all month that other people may well be on the warpath, either in response to your assertiveness or for no apparent reason.  People will not be pushovers. Stop and count to ten before you speak or communicate.  Be sensitive to this potential; and also do not assume you can be assertive to others in a way that may tip into aggression. 

Jupiter however is very friendly now to all born February 4th to 11th.  It is a great time for travel and international dealings, also for study.  Your mind is high in its consciousness and your sense of adventure is strong.  A feeling of luck and confidence is yours.

Even Saturn is positive now for those born around February 10th to 12th.  He is bringing constructive hard work to your door, which brings results, particularly in a leadership role and when working with others.

Uranus too is very inspiring and he is your ruling planet after all, to all those born around February 17th.  This will be continuous until around February 2019.  He is making your mind more intuitive and incisive with eureka moments and allowing your true Aquarian originality and uniqueness and insight to really shine.  Your humanitarian side and your desire to fight for the greater good is underlined successfully. 

If born around February 4th, the lunar eclipse of the 7th may bring quite a strong impact from others as they reveal issues or show behaviour that is possibly a bit of a revelation.

Also if born around February17th, the 21st could reveal a situation where you have a chance to be liberated from problems, albeit in a way that takes you by surprise and maybe a bit left field.


PISCES

Your work and your health is supported this month.  Do be aware that from the 13th until the 5th of next month, when Mercury, the planet that rules your 7th House moves retrograde, there is a great potential for misunderstandings and confusions in relationships; and frustrations and blockages, so try and ensure all necessary communications are achieved, if possible, before the 13th.  You may also have to re-think strategy after the 13th, which will ultimately serve you well, particularly connected to dealing with others.

Before the 26th, all of you will have a lot of fun, enjoyment, with the potential for romance flourishing and creatively and artistically you are on high form, with great inspiration and dealings with children and offspring; and fertility is sound.

Saturn is continuing to be a little troublesome for those born March 11th to 13th.  Extra responsibilities and difficulties weigh heavily on you, particularly in your professional capacity and you may feel tired and things are very hard to break through to success.  Take it easy.  Be grounded.  Do what you have to do, but get rest.  Face facts.  Be real.  Be mature and you will achieve a lot, even if it does feel a little bit of an uphill struggle.  Be honest about what you need to re-think.  Goals may have to be modified, but not abandoned. 

Your ruler, Neptune, currently in your sign (every 165 years) is now in his very rare visitation sitting on the Suns still of those born around March 4th.  This has been underway since April and is a very slow journey and is not completed until January 2019.  Because this is such a powerful transit, being your own planet, it brings a tremendous underlining of all Pisces traits, both negative and positive.  Hugely inspiring, hugely sensitising, even more than you normally are.  It brings a tremendous potential for spiritual growth, creative growth, empathy, compassion, and caring and even psychic qualities.  But beware the negative which is over-idealism, deception, self-deception, escapism, even addictive behaviour and hyper-sensitivity to the point of pain psychologically.  Emphasise the positive.  Avoid the negative. 

Finally, Pluto is continuing in his journey of empowerment of the Suns of those born March 7th to 9th.  This brings intelligent insight, powerful communications, ability to work well and effectively and influentially with others and able to transform yourself and others for the greater good.  This is destiny and is with you continuously until the beginning of next year.  Enjoy.

JULY 2017 GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW PLUS YOUR HOROSCOPE


This is not the most relaxed of months; in fact it is rather tense and confrontational.  We have come to expect the unlikely and the rather shocking over the last few years and months and there is little to indicate that this will subside. Clearly it is not meant to.

Mars is conjunct the Sun for much of the month being exact from the 23rd to 29th, suggesting warlike noises on the planet and much anger and over assertiveness. The USA is in high fever mode politically.

In the first 3 days of the month when Mars opposes Pluto, there is a serious power struggle mood, in many ways in many places and explosive tempers, can lead to dangerous action. Mercury is also conjunct Mars in the first week, when harsh aggressive words, may be triggers for a serious and dangerous response. The mood among the populace of many countries, not least England will be strong, but less than stable. Political insecurity and total uncertainty starts to really haunt Great Britain this month (and for many to come). The Full moon in Capricorn on the 17th will simultaneously conjunct Mercury in the chart for England (1066 chart). This may well signal significant eruptions and revelations.
 
Endings of chapters (Pluto) are very much flagged up also this month. Around the 10/11th, when the Sun opposes Pluto, escalation of tensions again is apparent globally.  Once more the USA is a focus, notably as Trump’s chart is so emphasised between the 9th and 15th as Mars conjuncts his Saturn and Venus.  This will be affecting his reputation and his public position. . Very significantly, Saturn will also be exactly in opposition to his Sun from the 6th and opposing his Moon from the 23rd  (both happening only every 30 years).  Both these transits are haunting him powerfully, on and off for over 3 months, signifying that till mid October, he has to deal with a very large onslaught of pressure and reality checks and not a little karma.

However in early August, he has a mitigating Jupiter effect, which may give him a get out clause.  Jupiter will also bring release of pressure for him in late August and early September. This may take many forms, including over confidence and over expansion, or a release of stress from the challenges of his position, which can manifest in rather circuitous, unexpected ways.

The 17th-21st of this month brings eruptions and the left field not only socio-politically, but also potentially geophysically, with earthquakes or volcanic eruptions or disruptive natural phenomena more likely, as Uranus is so activated then as Mars and the Sun square up to that eruptive, maverick and unpredictable planet. Expect the unexpected.

As we have already had a taster of, misuse/abuse of technology and the potential global disruptions this can cause, is also likely to become more likely when Uranus (technology) is triggered. Cyber warfare will be a significant danger in our future especially from 2025, when Pluto with its huge potential for misuse of power, moves into Uranus ruled Aquarius, till 2044.  We can choose then, of course, to utilise significant technological advance for the common good and to solve huge global problems, but as always, ability and motive is a potentially critical mix.  The problem is, that scientific development, knowledge and ability do not necessarily correlate with the equivalent growth of wisdom.

Economically the global economy is starting this month to look dangerously precarious. Jupiter is now beginning to square Pluto, being exact in early August. This indicates over risky financial arrogance in big financial institutions, and personal debt and borrowing issues are then building to flag up a real danger of economic crisis/crash. Significantly unregulated uber neo liberal Capitalism that has evolved over the last decade or so, is heading for a global nemesis that will likely begin to be pretty evident in late September this year, when Pluto in Capricorn (economy/establishment) moves direct.

From February 2018 when Pluto moves into the last decanate (last 10 degrees) of Capricorn, our economic system is likely to begin to look extremely vulnerable with a major necessary revolutionary period ahead, after some significant meltdowns or even some metaphorical death throws.

This month Venus opposing Saturn between the 23rd and 25th, may also be a significant indicator of financial hubris that we will all be privy to.

The good news (yes, even this column will acknowledge the good news) is that with Neptune now in Pisces (from 2011/12 till 2026), the growth of collective sensitivity /compassion and an awareness of a very urgent need to honour, love, value and protect our planet, the environment and its creatures, is growing.

 All children born between these dates will, for life, be so much more aware of and passionately feel these values and grow to treasure the natural world. They will also value the power of the arts as vital for our growth and health.  Not that I am saying they are our salvation, but they will at least rebalance/challenge (hopefully) a prevailing socio/economic value system that has existed for far too long, that has all too clearly proved to be one that “knows the price of everything and the value of nothing”.

The full Moon is on the 9th in Capricorn at 4 07 GMT. This may well be a trigger day for eruptive events globally.

The new Moon will fall on the 23rd in the very earliest degree of Leo, and is suggestive of a potential new chapter for many, not least sowing metaphorically new seeds, hopefully that will ultimately reap a good crop.



 ARIES

Much activity in your Solar 4th House suggest a need for paying a lot of attention to family and domestic issues this month, constructively so.
 
 It is important, before the 6th, if born after April 9th, to ensure that communications are not misunderstood.  

 Between the 6th and 25th all of you are blessed with extra creativity, particularly writing and interchange with offspring and lovers is very constructive and brings happiness. 
 After the 5th, for all of your, there is also the ability to combine heart with mind in your thoughts and conversation. 

 Before the 20th, if born after April 6th, you will also be aware that Mars is squaring your Sun.  This does mean that there may be impulsiveness and irritation, notably on the home front, which can be counter-productive.  Stubborn determination and anger that you feel, or which others show to you, can cause discord, so count to ten. 

 However, after the 20th, if born up to March 28th, your energies are focussed, constructively and you can achieve much, particularly in the field of creativity, romance and inspiring others.
 
 This month, Jupiter is opposing the Suns of those born April 2nd to 7th.  For this group, there is a great sense of indulgence, generosity, good times and other people may bring benefits, but beware that you’re not tempted to push the boat out too far, by yourself, or indeed by others. 

 There is much caution and constructive discipline going on now for those born April 11th to 14th.  Travel may be for duty and academic pursuits may be significant; and demand hard work and focus.  Loyalty and duty are in the air.  

Uranus is now sitting right on the Sun, in his once every 84 year visitation, of those born April 17th to 19th; and he will be so doing on and off until March 2019, which does indicate that this is a period for many of you of a bit of a roller coaster of change and where you will be feeling impatient and quite revolutionary and maverick in behaviour.  Change is inevitable.  Let it happen.  Do not push the flow.  The unexpected and the left field is all part of a catalyst to be experienced as a leap into a new future, even if at times it feels insecure and uncomfortable.  You are awakening to a new, unique part of yourself that will ultimately be valuable.  

 For those born April 6th to 9th, Pluto is currently making you aware that you need to be alert to power struggles with others, particularly professionally; and that you have to be very careful about misuse of power yourself.  Don’t’ taint or you will be tainted.


TAURUS

 Communication will be important to you this month.

 Before the 6th, if born after May 10th, you are impressive and constructive.
 
However, between the 1st and the 25th, clarity is needed and misunderstandings are rife, particularly with family.

However, after the 25th, if born up to April 27th, there is a window of opportunity for excellence and breakthroughs with offspring and in love life. 

 Before the 5th, if born after May 15th, love life is flagged up.  Financial advantages, affections and charm are all in your orbit.  There is also an extra aesthetic sense.  

 Before the 20th, if born after May 7th, your assertive willpower is constructive, well directed and people are impressed.  

However, after the 20th, if born before April 27th, you are a little like a bull in a china shop on your home territory; and indeed other people in your family, or in your home circumstances, need to tiptoe around you.   Stubbornness, irritation and impatience is in the air. 

 Neptune is currently, and for some time to come, till early 2019 no less – enhancing the spiritual and creative lives of all born May 3rd to 6th.  Friendships are like soul mates and there is a great sense of being inspired by the heart, to have greater compassion, empathy, sensitivity and either on an ideological or personal level. You want to improve the world around you, in a very non-material way, but one, which knows the value of everything, but not necessarily the price.  Your emotions will flow more freely and healthily and creativity, such as music and the arts, is much easier to access.  Being near the sea is also very healing. 

 Finally, those born May 7th to 10th are still under the influence of a very powerful and rare positive Pluto.  This will be so until the end of next year.  This brings courage, insight, a forensic mind, able to speak the truth and to have power over circumstances .A regeneration and transformation of self is really possible right now.  Long distance, academic and legal interests can be very much involved in this process.

 GEMINI
 It will not do any harm this month to focus a little on finances and the rationalising of that area of your life.  

 Between the 6th and the 25th, you will all benefit from an even more acute and curious mind than usual; and your communications are particularly effective.  

 However, after the 25th, early Gemini’s, born up to May 27th, need to ensure that your brain is not muddled and that communications received, or given, are not confused or confusing.  

 Venus moves into your sign on the 5th; and is going to bring to you all an element of extra affection, love, warmth, charm and happy enjoyment.  Good times roll and cupid can be active. 

 After the 24th, Mars brings positive influences for all born up to May 29th.  You are competitive, determined, courageous and constructive both in speech and action.  Energy is high and can further your goals. 

 Jupiter is also very much the friend now of all born June 3rd to 8th.  He is bringing optimism, positivity, growth, inner or outer, and possibly happy travel, and the belief in self and often just good luck, particularly to do with love life, around children’s issues and even speculatively, but with caution. 

 Saturn however, is back to bring a little bit of a challenge to those born around June 12th to 15th.  Similar that which you experienced late last December and first half of January.  Lots of restrictions and reality checks, particularly in relationship to other people, are in the air.  This is a time for re-consideration of action and re-thinking.  A necessary pause.  The reality checks need to be taken note of.  They are for a reason, but duty and obligation may well inevitable, which one can’t turn one’s back on.  Step up to the plate and do what you know is right. 

 Uranus is very positive for those born around June 20th.  For the coming year or so, you are inspired to make positive change that fulfil your purpose and humanitarian issues may figure, as you seek to improve the future. 

 However, if born June 3rd to 6th, you are still, since April 2017, until early 2019, in a situation where you need to be wary of smoke and mirrors around you, particularly at work, but also know that your heart is becoming more important than just your bank balance, or possibly than just the power of your intellect.  Idealism is in the air, but keep grounded and ensure you check the credentials of everybody and everything.

 CANCER

This is your month and it is a time to shine and to take centre stage, notably before the 6th
 After the 25th, if born up to June 28th, your communication and intellectual skills are impressive and you are persuasive.  

 Before the 5th, if born after July 17th, friends can be particularly loving and supportive and you to them; and social life take on an extra boost for enjoyment and amorous opportunity. 

Mars however is in your sign all the way up to the 20th, directly affecting all born after July 9th, so there is a warning that with this level of determination, energy, enthusiasm and impulse, this can be a period where you have to choose between either positive, constructive assertiveness or being overly controlling and potentially over-assertiveness.  Your energy and drive to achieve will be significant.  Ensure the motive is good.  The impact of men in one’s life can also be extra significant.

 Jupiter is currently squaring the Suns of those born July 5th to 10th.  This is bringing you a tendency to be a little over confident, or even a little arrogant; and the potential to bite off more than you can chew needs to be watched.  Enjoyment is there but over-indulgence and over-expansion is a little dangerous.  Don’t let your expectations get carried away.

 Uranus is now directly affecting those born July 20th to 22nd in his once every 42-year challenge to your Sun.  This will be a long transit, not over until early 2019 and will involve a certain level of restlessness and desire for change, notably in your career direction.  It will bring unexpected events that are out of your control, which although unsettling, will kick-start you into a more liberated future.  Be flexible, go with the flow and know that the changes going on within and externally are meant to be and are in some way awakening and enlightening, but you need to follow your more true-to-self path in your career direction.

 Neptune is very helpful and inspiring now for those born July 5th to 8th, as he has been for some months.  You are more spiritually and creatively aware, quite psychic, very sensitive, empathetic and compassionate, even more than is the norm for your sign.  Enjoy and let others be the beneficiaries.  Long distance travel may be part of this journey.  

 However, for those born July 6th to 11th, beware people who are coercive, controlling and who misuse power.  Walk away.  You need to bear this in mind until the end of next year. 

LEO

This could be a month where other people and friendships are significant, notably before the 6th.  Certainly between the 6th and 25th when Mercury is in your sign, you will all have the ability to have a say and be listened to, but ensure that you’re not overly self-centred and subjective.  Learn to listen to the other guy. 

Before the 5th, if born after August 17th, be careful about being sycophantic to others in your career.  False charm and over cosying up to others is not the answer. 
 
After the 5th, you are all in a position to be able to take advantage of friends and social life who can bring you progress and happiness and you indeed can do the same for them. 
  
 Mars however moves into your sign on the 20th, which is a bit of a warning for all born up to July 30th.  You may be subject to impatience and impulse and irritation with other people; and indeed they may well want their pound of flesh from you.  You will certainly find that assertiveness of some kind will be in the ether, either yours or others’.  You will be courageous, but make sure it’s not foolhardy.
Jupiter is the friend now of all those born August 5th to 10th.  It can help with an enhanced level of wisdom. Travel is a positive input and certainly communications with others can be very benign and helpful. 

 If born August 14th to 17th, Saturn is currently forcing you to be mature, grown up, step up to the plate, accept responsibilities and deal with issues in a constructive, pragmatic way; and indeed duty and obligation to others, financially and romantically are flagged up.
 
Uranus, however, is creating a great sense of liberation in the sense of authenticity, if your birthday is around August 21st.  Long distance issues and legal issues can be on your side and there is a sense of liberation from the old that is welcome; and it is other people who may be triggers for this; and sudden travels can open your eyes and your mind. 

 The new Moon falls at the very beginning of your sign on the 23rd at 9.46 GMT, directly affecting those born round July 22nd. This is a time for the sowing of a new crop for the future.

 VIRGO

Social life may figure more strongly this month in a very positive and happy way. 

 Before the 6th, if born after September 12th, good news and happy communications with others is uplifting. 

 After the 25th, if born before August 30th, your mind is extra sharp and analytical and your capacity for learning is enhanced.

 Before the 5th, Venus is in your compatible of Taurus.  Those born after September 17th are able to combine romance and travel and long distance issues very harmoniously.  The heart is happily underlined. 

However, after the 5th, you will all need to be aware that any vainglory or hypocrisy, particularly in your public standing, will not do you any favours.  Excessive charm for self- seeking purposes may be seen through by others..  Extra indulgence is possible. 

 Before the 20th, Mars will be directly affecting those born after September 9th, in a constructive way.  You will be assertive in groups, with leadership talent; and friends and associations will be great encouragers to show your potential and you will bring out the best in others.  Energy is high and constructive.  Particularly when it is collective and collaborative. 

 Saturn however, is a little challenging now if born September 13th to 16th, as indeed he was late last year and at the very beginning of this year.  A lack of confidence and some struggles will reveal themselves and world looks a little like a harder mountain to climb than usual.  Domestic and family issues may be causing you some concern, but this is a time to bite bullets, do what is necessary and face facts with courage and determination, to lay good foundations for the future; and to accept delays as being a time of re-thinking.  Look after your health as well.  You are a little more tired and vulnerable than usual. 

 Neptune, currently, until February 2019, is in his once 165 opposition to your Sun.  This is creating a situation where you need to be extremely wary and careful of those who are less than black and white in motive; and don’t project onto other people what you want to see.  Beware of victims to save and heroes to worship.  It is not that simple.  Enjoy the sea and exploring more spiritual avenues and creativity is inspired, but keep grounded and realistic and check out the details of everybody.  Take off the rose coloured spectacles, where appropriate.  

 However, for those born September 9th to 12th, you are still in the middle of a regenerative period where you are more forthright, determined, empowered, particularly romantically and creatively.  All with a sense of purpose; and your insights and understanding is clear and powerful.

 LIBRA

Focus on career and public standing is flagged up this month and after the 6th and before the 25th, you will all have opportunities to communicate valuably and with good results to others, notably friends.
 
 After the 5th, you will all have the ability to really enjoy long distance issues.  Travel and vacations, are likely to enhance love life and bring joy; and learning can also be a source of great pleasure and where aesthetics are enhanced too. 

 Before the 20th, Mars is square to your Sun if born after October 9th.  This is very important as time to be wary and count to ten when dealing with colleagues at work who may be contentious or challenging; and you indeed may also be creating some discomfort in others, with an over-assertive approach.  Rushing into issues and impatience will not help, so count to ten.

 However, after the 20th, if born up to September 30th, there is an opportunity to be very assertively effective in creating harmony with others and to be effective in your leadership skills; and others will boost your confidence as they acknowledge your abilities. 

Jupiter in your sign is now back to really enhance the lives of those born October 5th to 10th.  You are now benefiting from a real boost to wisdom, luck, and positivity and there are opportunities around you.  Travel is also extremely favourable; and your mind is particularly big picture in understanding. 
 Even Saturn is constructive now for those born October 14th to 16th, as he brings discipline, focus and constructive hard work to your door. 

Uranus, however, opposing the Suns now of those born October 20th to 22nd, will now be heralding a once every 84 year evolution that will be with you on and off until March 2019.  Expect change from other people and disruption from external sources; and although this may be unsettling, have confidence that they are there as tools to kick start you into a better future, despite the seeming disruption. 

Finally, Pluto is still have having an effect on those born October 11th to 16th, of making you feel slightly at war with yourself, as you recognise that you need to end outworn situations and empower yourself.  Ensure this fight is conscious and don’t let dark, manipulative forces creep in.

SCORPIO

July is an excellent month for vacations for your sign, or for any international dealings, particularly this month, before the 6th, if born after November 12th, where long distance negotiations and legal issues can also be flagged up positively. 

 However, between the 6th and 25th, you all need to be wary of ensuring that communications in your working life are such that you are all reading from the same page.  There is room for misunderstandings and confusion.
 
 However, after the 25th, if born up to October 30th, good communications with friends and in a group situation are enhancing of your power. 

 Venus is in your opposite sign before the 5th, bringing to all born after November 17th a great feeling of improved relationships with loved ones and romantic opportunities.  Affections and amorous feelings are highlighted. 

 Before the 20th, Mars is also on your side, if born after November 9th.  Again, travel is underlined and this time possibly for a rather single minded purpose and serious adventure is flagged up, but constructive, positive actions and dealings are very much underlined – legally, internationally and academically. 

 However, after the 20th, if born up to October 31st, be wary about being overly assertive, controlling or competitive, particularly on the work front, or you will certainly attract that behaviour to yourself from others.  Stubborn struggles are in the air. 

 Neptune is now, and will be until February 2019, harmonising with the Suns of those born November 5th to 8th.  For this group, idealism and harmony and the desire for a real soul mate is very strong in romantic issues and strengthens creativity.  There is a real boost to aesthetic sensitivity.  A love of the arts and spiritual pursuits and being around nature is very healing and great deal of reward can be felt in these areas and also around one’s offspring.  The heart is much stronger in its sensitivities than it used to be and it will probably stay that way. 

Finally, Pluto, your ruling planet, is still empowering the best qualities of your sign if born November 9th to 12th; and will so do until the end of 2018.  For this group, your wisdom, your insight, your research abilities, your power of communication, your ability to speak truth and to be impressive and to affect other people positively and powerfully is significant.  Enjoy.

 SAGITTARIUS

This is not a month for superficiality. You have to get deep and intense and probably constructively.  Between the 6th and the 25th, you mind is particularly sharp and intellectually stimulated.  Your communications and study and teaching abilities are all positively emphasised.  Travel too will be a source of enlightenment.  
 
 However, after the 25th, if born up to November 30th, ensure that professional communications are clearly understood.

 After the 5th, all of you will experience Venus’ lashings of happiness; affection and the potential for fulfilling relationships, new or in continued old ones. Your affections and love are given and equally returned.  

 After the 20th, if born up to November 30th, determinations, ambition, drive and energy is underlined, particularly in academia and philosophical issues; and also connected to travel.
 
 Jupiter is harmonious now for all born December 5th to 10th.  Friendships, leadership skills, looking for a common purpose, not just for your own gains, are all emphasised as positive, wise and successful.  Good people are around you.  Travel is also protected. 

However, Saturn is currently, as you probably know is in your sign and is now back directly affecting those born December 13th to 16th.  For this group, as last late December and January, there is a sense of a reality check.  Life feels tough.  Responsibilities, obligations weigh on you and you’re tired.  Look after yourself.  Do only that which is necessary, but do it well and be practical and realistic.  Delays are there to teach you to re-think.  Bite the bullet and step up to the plate.  Don’t let under-confidence get the better of you. 

 Uranus, however, has just started to inspire the lives of those born December 19th to 21st.  Until early 2019 you will be creatively inspired and others romantically will be catalysts for a new awakening, as indeed can offspring.  The need for freedom and authenticity; and to take a leap into a more appropriate future for you, will be aided and abetted.

 However, for those born December 5th to 8th need until early 2019 to always be aware of seeing things clearly and not through rose coloured spectacles, but uncertainties abound. Take it easy.  Don’t push the river.  See where the journey takes you, without panic.

CAPRICORN

Relationships figure strongly in your life and you can learn a lot from them this month.

 After the 25th, if born up to December 29th, serious communications that are very constructive, particularly long distance, are underscored.  Your mind is sharp and deep.  

 Before the 5th, if born after January 16th, cupid is inspired, creative and aesthetic appreciation is strong and a general feeling of enjoying life; and one’s offspring are underlined. 

 Mars however, before the 20th, is bringing for all born after January 7th, the potential for some confrontation with strong-minded people.  Assertiveness should not tip into aggression, but others will hold you to account.  Just be careful of not inviting confrontation.  Indeed, others may be living out unexpressed aggression in you.

 Jupiter however, is creating a situation or a feeling for those born January to 8th of a little bit of an over-confident or an over-reaching.  Don’t bite off more than you can chew, or expect too much.  Progress can be made, particularly work-wise, provided you are not too pushy or have too high expectations.  

 Uranus is starting to create some uncertainty in the lives of those born around January 18th to 20th.  This transit will be with you until early 2019 and it is a little bit of a time of restlessness and of the unpredictable.  Changes of mood and potentially some domestic change are in the air.  Impulse and risk need to be avoided.  Stop and think, but let change happen naturally. 

 However, for those born January 3rd to 6th, inspiration is yours, creatively and spiritually, as is increased empathy and emotional response.  

 If born January 7th to 10th, you are still undergoing a period, since the beginning of this year, until the end of next year, a time of real confrontation with issues of your power and destiny, which you may struggle with a bit, but which you have no choice but to face.  Power may be thrust upon you, or you may be coming across powerful individuals.  Either way, you have to stick to good motives, humility and karmic acceptance of responsibilities and make sure it’s for the greater good.  Intense experiences are likely and endings of chapters will open new empowering doors.

The full Moon is in your sign at 17 degrees, affecting those born January 7th –9th. For this group the ends of chapters are in the air and eruptions of repressed energies are triggered.

 AQUARIUS

 Work and everyday routine figures largely in your consciousness this month.

 Between the 6th and the 25th you will all have the benefit of very interesting and informative communications from other people and indeed good conversations generally. Your wisdom is received and others give you good advice.   This is  a brilliant time for successfully negotiating in personal or in business relationships.  

 Before the 5th, all born after February 13th, you need to have a little care of over-expenditure and extravagance, particularly on the home front, but after the 5th you will all benefit from a boost to creativity and a boost to fun, love life, dealings with offspring and sense of appreciation of the joys of living. 

 After the 20th, for all born up to January 28th, however, Mars in your Solar 7th House may bring for this group, a feeling that there are people around who will challenge you and you have to be certain that you have not invited this mood in, but relationships may well be quite fraught with assertiveness.  Stop and think before you speak, or respond. 

 However, Jupiter is happily disposed now towards those born February 2nd to 7th.  This is a brilliant time for travel, study, teaching and wise thought.  Luck, positivity and confidence is yours, as is growth, internally or externally.  Success is in the air.

 And those born February 10th to 13th have Saturn, yes, bringing extra responsibilities and duties, but also giving you the ability to step up to the plate very happily, confidently, assuredly and successfully.  Responsibility, loyalty and obligations are addressed extremely admirably. 

 Uranus, your ruling planet, is also bringing out your best Aquarian capacity for the new, the innovative, the out of the box and the humanitarian for those born February 16th to 18th.  This new mood and interest and, drive will be with you until March 2019.  Your mind is more open and intuitive than ever; and your ability to think laterally and have eureka moments should not be underestimated. Believe in your thought process and your insight. 

 PISCES

  A month for your sign to enjoyment, fun, love life and creativity.  

 Before the 6th, if born after March 11th, writing skills and general creative inspirations are particularly strong; and communications with those who you love, particularly children, are enhanced and successful. 

After the 25th, if born up to February 25th, your ability to communicate with all who matter to you is impressive.  You receive good news and you can have very successful negotiations; and you can impress others. 

 Before the 5th, if born after March 15th, you can combine heart with mind and your charms are extremely impressive to others in convincing them of your case.  Loving communication is very beneficial.  

 After the 5th, however, for all of you, there is a tendency to be sentimental, over indulgent and not too discriminating.

 Before the 20th however, all born after March 7th, will have a brilliant rush of energy that can be so well directed into the arts and creativity.  Also, passions and pursuing love life is underscored.  Constructive activities with offspring can bring joy as well. You will feel energised to live life to the full. 

 However, Saturn is bringing, as he was at the end of last year and the beginning of this, a little bit of a challenge to those born March 11th to 14th.  Issues at work may be onerous.   There are blocks and restrictions.  Extra responsibility and negative feelings are in the air, related to authority figures and duties.  Be real in assessing what the fact of the matter is.  Do what is necessary to improve, but know when it is time to re-think.  Do not let under-confidence get the better of you; and also get rest and look after the body.  

 Your ruling planet Neptune, is currently, and has been since April; and indeed will be so affecting you until early 2019, those born March 3rd-6th, in a way that is underling to the nth degree your huge sensitivity, creativity, spirituality, psychic powers, but also possibly an escapist side.  Use this once every 165-year visitation to emphasise your emotional sensitivity and compassion for the greater good, but do not let it be wasted on a sense of escape or over idealisation.

 Finally, Pluto will continue to bring a bonus to those born March 7th to 10th, lasting until late 2018, of extra powers to go out and to be the person who could be effective and regenerative and transformative for other people, in a leadership role.  Confidence and destiny is yours.  Enjoy.
