April 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 19th April
The sun is in your sign until 19th, so you’re in the cosmic spotlight. The planet patterns aren’t easy this month, especially 7th, 11th, 21st and 30th, but they are productive and healing. Full moon in your relationship chart (11th) is about balancing priorities, defying convention, and staying true to your true self (don’t ignore intuition or feelings). Then Venus, your relationship ruler, ends retrograde on 15th, indicating a turnaround or change of direction in key relationships. Mars activates communication and dialogue from the 21st (especially 28th) and there might be a second chance at something that didn’t go well first time round then too.
Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Your ruler Venus has been retrograde (moving backwards) since early March, indicating a time of reconnection, reunion, and review in key relationships, including your relationship with yourself. From 15th, Venus is moving forward, which means relationships, business, finance, contracts and agreements do too. There’s a crisis of confidence around 8thor 21st; so don’t argue for your limitations, or give up faith in what can be.. Mercury retrogrades in your sign from 10th, which can delay or divert communication or schedules temporarily. But the sun moves into your sign from 19th, bringing your annual new moon (26th) which indicates new beginnings that feel freeing, valuable and worthy.
Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
April isn’t an easy month but you’ve learned so much by the end of it that you define it an empowering and successful one. Events around 7th and especially full moon time on 11th, might surprise you or take an unusual or unconventional direction (and it might be repeated around 28th); especially for friendship, groups, and gatherings, as well as career, status and ambition. Mercury is your planet, and it retrogrades from 10th, indicating a change of mind or approach that helps you prepare for much needed talks or discussions. Venus ends retrograde from 15th, so relationships and finances are moving forward, and Mars in your sign from 21st means motivation to complete goals is uber-high.
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
It’s not easy to be pragmatic this month (so don’t be!), as many things don’t fit expectations or fully make sense so you have to get comfy with the irrational and illogical. This is most noticeable around 7th, 28th, and especially during the full moon on 11th when key relationships, contracts or agreements are transforming. It’s also noticeable when Venus moves forward from the 15th, bringing a turning point to surrender into, and go with the flow of. New moon on the 26thin your friendship chart is refreshing and nourishing given the challenges of the month. New beginnings of substance, stability and value are emerging, with like-minded folk and crowds you want to feel part of.
Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There are challenging planet aspects (especially around 8th, 11th, 14th, 21st) indicating challenges for you, but they are serving to strengthen your purpose and resolve. In other words, what gives you a crisis of confidence around the 8th won’t by 21st, because all your experiences are increasing your self-assurance. Events around full moon on the 11th are about sorting your own unique balance of priorities that you’re comfortable with. Venus (love and money) ends retrograde on 15th, which means a change of direction, and striding forward after a period of uncertainty. Career and ambition might feel up in the air until next month, but the buds of new beginnings appear with the new moon on 26th.
Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Venus, the planet of love and money, ends retrograde on 15th, indicating significant turnaround in these areas, slowly bringing healing and long awaited solutions and answers after weeks of feeling things were forced backwards or towards the past. Before that, especially around 7th and full moon on 11th, limits or obstacles might seem unsolvable, but your own planet Mercury retrogrades from 10th, indicating a review or update in your thinking. This enables you to revisit everything from a different perspective, particularly from 21st when purposeful Mars moves to your sign, then the new moon on 26threveals a new sense of security and self-worth.
Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s not a straightforward month, particularly around 7th, and the relationship-themed full moon on 11th. It’s difficult to sort sense from the complex dynamics, yet you end up feeling more clear and straightforward in yourself about so many things. Your planet Venus is ending retrograde on 15th, so after weeks of moving in different directions to your plans, there’s a slow turnaround to back on track. What happens around 15this about healing and re-orientating yourself, and there might be communication or discussion to get there. From 19th and especially new moon on 26th, you’ve a new sense of faith and trust in the unknown; exactly what’s needed around 28th.
Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
You aren’t really in the mood for being practical as April begins, but it might be an idea to stay sensible at times (7th, 8th, 11th, 21st, 30th). Venus, planet of love and money, ends retrograde on 15th, which means things get moving and you’re looking forward again to what’s ahead. It also holds great significance for creative projects that stalled or needed specific solutions. Sun moves into your partnership chart from the 19th, and Mercury retrogrades there (11th) which puts all relationships, contracts, and agreements in the spotlight, and suggests reviews, reconnection, rescheduling and rethinking. A grounded new moon in your partnership chart (26th) is about welcoming a new sense of security, stability, and self-worth.
Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Some situations don’t come naturally to you this month (especially around 7th, 11th, 21st, or 30th), but that doesn’t mean they are wrong situations, or that you’re wrong. It’s your desire to step up that is calling you forward; it might not seem practical but your sensible, responsible side is moving you forward in all this, into a leap of faith. Moving into the unknown, learning as you go, is actually the next logical step as that all comes naturally to you. This is most active around the freedom-seeking full moon (11th), and when Venus ends retrograde from 15th, bringing deep healing experiences for relationships and important connections.
Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There are some tricky dynamics in situations this month; it takes a little bit of counting to ten, and a lot of believing that justice will prevail, despite lack of evidence. Especially around the 8th it takes effort to not let others push buttons or trigger ‘old stuff’ in you, and again around full moon on 11th, also around 21st and 30th, though by that time you’re more immune; maybe because of what happens around 15th, when love and money planet Venus ends retrograde, as there’s a change or turnaround triggered by events at that time, along with some overdue healing for situations. From 19th and especially new moon (26th) you are seeking security, stability and substance; and finding it.
Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
One side of you cares deeply about being fair on everyone, another side feels fiercely passionate about being able to be yourself, regardless of who takes offence. You are finding your balance in this during April, especially around full moon time on 11th, also 14thand 28th, when your desire for free speech and freedom of expression might get you into trouble with your internal censor. It’s also an exciting time for communication, travel and learning, if you don’t ask for conventional or predictable. Venus (love and money) moves forward from 15th, in your finance and self-worth chart, and new moon on 26th is about new beginnings at home and with family.
Pisces
19th February – 20th March

 

Some unfinished business is being completed this month (though some waits until next month), highlighted by events around the healing and balancing full moon on 11th, and when Venus (love and money) ends retrograde and moves forward in your sign from 15th. The full moon symbolises unusual and surprising answers and solutions arriving all month, in ways that can keep your faith in the future strong, even when things feel unfair or draining (maybe 7th, 21st or 28th). Much of April is focused on finance and security and from 19thcommunication becomes more relevant, especially with partners and with siblings. New moon on 26th brings new beginnings related to all this.

March 2017 Horoscopes

Aries
20th March – 20th April
March continues on the recent theme of balancing your need for freedom with your desire to expand and grow certain relationships (especially first week). Also, love and money planet Venus retrogrades (appears to move backward) in your sign from 4th until mid-April, which means a review and restyle: of yourself, of finances, and relationship. Mercury (your communication and thinking) is in your sign from 13th, followed by the Sun on 20th. Then the annual new moon in your sign on the 28this a potent symbol of a new you. March is basically about your fabulous potential and what’s new and renewing about it, so the excitement and thrills keep coming.
Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Your planet is Venus, the planet associated with love and value. Venus is retrograde (appearing to move backwards) from the 4th, until mid-April, so it’s an important time for reviewing, re-evaluating, and reconnecting with your priorities in relationships, finances and resources. You might feel more compelled to act, or make a first move on something that matters, especially after the 20th, also around new moon on 28th(don’t jump to negative conclusions though). Mars in your sign from 10th, indicates endurance and determination regarding your current desires, which makes you a formidable force in achieving goals and desires.
Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
A break, holiday, or change of pace might be happening this month. It gives you breathing space and thinking time about a long-term plan or project, possibly work-related. Around full moon time (12th) obstacles or limits are put there by you not others, even though it might seem otherwise. Relationships in general are also highlighted: friendships might rekindle or reconnect, once Venus retrogrades from 4th (and from 13th). In romance, there’s the potential for deep and satisfying resonance and harmony, so minimise challenges (especially around 24th!) and keep your heart and mind open to what can’t be put into words.
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Up to the 20th (especially full moon time on the 12th), the focus is on expanding horizons; perhaps through learning or travel (a holiday is a great idea!), but all month there’s huge focus on career, status, reputation and ambition. For example, Venus retrograde from the 4th until mid-April reconnects you with people, places or plans from the past, and brings a much wanted turning point or change of direction. Final week might be intense, but there’s method to any madness; it’s not for nothing that there’s a beautiful new moon (28th) bringing new beginnings and the birth of new opportunities.
Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Situations that were important late-December, especially linking to travel or education, might become relevant again this month. Venus is retrograde from the 4th until mid-April, which means relationship reconnections and reunions (especially around 25th), and the new moon (28th) indicates new beginnings. Up to 20th, imagination is your secret power. The challenge is to stay focused on what you want rather than picturing what you don’t want, as your focus energises and magnifies whatever scenario you stick on. Full moon (12th) brings issues of security and resources to a head, so turn a crisis of confidence into a reason to keep the faith (15th, 17th, and final week).
Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
The annual full moon in your sign on the 12th, is about sorting out where you stand emotionally on things that are important to you now. It’s about emotional balance with others, but also your relationship with yourself. You’re looking for what’s real and true, and you have an open heart and open mind about what that might mean, which is a strong position to be in (challenges around 24th require you stay in that strength). Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April, which is about reconnections or reunions in relationships, as well as reviews of finances and resources (especially shared resources), and the new moon (28th) indicates new beginnings in all this.
Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s been a case of expect the unexpected recently, with things happening that led to sudden change and sudden clarity. This is a continuing theme for March (especially first and final week), as well as a huge emphasis on relationships. Venus, your ruling planet, is starting a retrograde phase in your house of relationships, from 4th until mid-April; indicating a time of reviewing and re-evaluating, and reconnecting and reuniting. Not just for romance, it can be any relationship, including work or financial. It’s about reversal of direction, or a turnaround in events that is designed to lead you closer to where you want to be in future, and the new moon on 28th is about new beginnings linked to this.
Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Creative projects, matters of the heart, friendship and fun are all at the forefront for much of March. The full moon on the 12this about all this and any limits and obstacles that have been in the way. Love and money planet Venus is retrograde from the 4th until mid-April, in your work, health and fitness chart, which means you might be returning to a diet or exercise plan, or re-evaluating occupation somehow. Maybe some faces or places of work from the past become relevant again, and new, important beginnings are in store, symbolised by the new moon on 28th. Final week of March is intense, challenging but very productive.
Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
This is another month of unexpected or sudden happenings that brings clarity, new focus and vision. Up to the 20th the focus is on home and family, and balancing work and personal time. This theme is magnified around full moon time on the 12th, along with the idea of extra responsibility, limits and a new sense of authority. Venus retrograde from the 4th until mid-April is about reconnection and reunion, and new moon on the 28th is about new beginnings linked to this, for creativity, matters of the heart, fun and entertainment. Final week, especially 24th and 30th, is about renewal of resources, and keeping the faith in friendship. Love is transforming you too.
Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Recent events might have brought sudden or unexpected changes of plan, especially in home or family matters, that appeared disruptive yet positive for the long-term, and this theme continues for March. Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April, indicating family reunions, reconnecting to childhood, and a re-evaluation of your comfort zone. New moon (28th) is about new beginnings out of this. A philosophical full moon on the 12th is about how the wisdom of your experience serves you well, and how you’re broadening your horizons and widening the scope of your current experience through travel or learning. Final week (especially 24thand 30th) is about communication linked to career or ambition, and a sense of faith, renewal and transformation.
Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
New, sudden or unexpected events revolving around communication, learning, education and travel are a continuing theme for you this month (especially from 20th), just like it was last December (it will be again in September too!). Venus is retrograde from the 4th, so the past is more relevant than usual and perhaps reunions and reconnection are in store. Full moon on the 12th is about how you’re handling unknown or uncontrollable factors right now; especially with shared finances, and deepening certain relationships. This again crops up from 18th, especially 24th, 26th and around new moon on 28th. It’s all about working with the past, not rejecting it; and trusting your current journey to reveal a new sense of order.
Pisces
19th February – 20th March
The Sun is in your sign until 20th, which means it’s your time of year. Full moon in your relationship chart on the 12this about reaching a balance, meaning you’re not losing yourself in relationships and not shutting down for self-protection. Venus is retrograde from 4th until mid-April in your income and resources chart. It means you’re re-evaluating and redefining your sense of self-worth in various productive ways. Recent sudden or unexpected events relate to all this somehow, and there might be more to come, unsettling you at times, yet really opening your eyes to your inner strength and resourcefulness. A new sense of respect for yourself is then reflected back to you by others, so take their compliments seriously.

 

December 2016 Horoscopes

I moved house on the new moon in Sagittarius on Dec 1st (new moon in Sag = new journeys!), hence everything is running late, amidst unpacked boxed 😀 Better late than never though, here’s my horoscopes for December for you 🙂 Last of 2016. Get ready for 2017 😉

Aries
21st March – 20th April
It’s time to take your own advice, especially midmonth during an enlightening, talkative full moon (14th). Your ruler, mighty Mars, moves into the most spiritual angle of your chart from the 19th, which emphasises going within to find your power. Meditation, contemplation, and intuition all serve you well. Logical Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) related to career, status and reputation; so maybe it’s not the right time to end something, or maybe it’s right time to regroup and rethink (maybe both). Relationships are interesting all month, especially final week (25th and 26th) for new expansion. The new moon (29th) is also about career, status and reputation, meaning exciting, unexpected commitments in store.
Taurus
21st April – 21st May
A sense of belonging is important to you this month, and the midmonth full moon brings up your questions around that, such as where are more like-minded folk that share similar values? There’s a turning point around 19th (Mercury retrograde), which might involve abandoning some plans for just now, but there’s gain, not loss to be found from it. Your steady, practical nature loves security and routine, but there’s also huge value to be had from the unexpected or unpredictable, especially during final week when generous Jupiter meets revolutionary Uranus (around 26th), and the new moon inspires new journeys and perspectives (29th).
Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
You can’t please everyone, so no point trying. This month (1st, 10th), and especially midmonth when there’s a fulfilling full moon in your sign (14th) follow the approval of your own heart, no matter who has something to say about it. Commitment, contracts and agreements are happening (especially 10th and 19th), and there’s also a temporary change of direction around that time, when your ruler Mercury goes retrograde (moves backward). The new moon (29th) is about new beginnings linked to this, and there’s a mega meeting between Jupiter and Uranus all month (strongest 26th), suggesting doors of opportunity and joy opening unexpectedly and fabulously.
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Planet Mercury moves into your relationship chart from 2nd, so news and discussion, communication and information, as well as your mindset about your relationships, contracts and agreements will feel important (especially 10th). There’s a talkative and rather spiritual full moon on the 14th that emphasises (and magnifies) all this; then a relationship situation that feels like it’s brewing with intensity might be diffused by a change in direction when Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) after 19th. A new moon on 29th speaks of new beginnings in relationships. A spectacular alignment of Jupiter and Uranus (all month but strongest final week) is about unexpected clarity, opportunity and/or independence, linked to home and career.
Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Harmony planet Venus moves to your relationship chart (7th) so you’re seeking balance and equality, and standing for fairness and justice. Around 10th you’re the boss of fun and entertainment (perfect Leo job!), while creativity and romance mean extra commitment. Full moon (14th) in your house of friendship indicates good times, and events heal trust issues if you’re receptive to that. Mercury retrograde from 19th means avoiding power struggles with a change of direction. You’re also reconnecting with faces and places from the past (especially work related). Final week of December is a bag of goodies, especially 25th and 26thfor sweet and stable relationships, and new moon (29th) for exciting expansion and developments, now and in future.
Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Venus in your work, health, and problem-solving chart from the 7th means you’re looking to smooth relations with others, and find win/win solutions all month. Your ruler Mercury moves into your fun, creativity and romance chart from the 2nd, which means constructive and productive developments, particularly around 10th, 14th(full moon), from 21st, and around 29th (new moon) for new beginnings. Mercury retrogrades from 19th; the same day that action planet Mars moves into your house of relationships and contracts, suggesting reunions and reconnection, and a rethink or review about relationship direction. Final week of December is about freedom and balance with resources, and maybe there’s unexpected or sudden income and purchase opportunities.
Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Your ruler Venus moves to your house of fun, creativity and romance from the 7th, setting a tone for the month ahead. You’re still practical and grounded, despite your light-hearted mood (or maybe there’s fun in the practicalities) especially around 10th, 14th, and from 19th, with events around new moon time (29th) highlighted as potent symbols of new progress and developments, particularly linked to home and family matters. Mercury retrogrades from 19th, which might mean plans change last minute. It indicates reunions and reconnection too. All month (especially final week) Jupiter and Uranus align in ways that indicate productive, unexpected opportunities, so savour the sweetness.
Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Certain limits linked to income and resources challenge you to stay open and creative, increasing your sense of expertise and authority (especially 10th to full moon on 14th). The extra special Jupiter/Uranus alignment (all month but strongest 25th and 26th) is about sweet harmony found from unusual places, especially communication, which is important all month but particularly around 19th when Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards). It indicates events might seem to be going off track or delayed, but don’t jump to conclusions. Presume there’s method to the madness, and what happens around new moon time (29th) and into the first weeks of the new year will make sense of the timing issues.
Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
This is your time of year. The sun is in your sign until 21st and the positive Jupiter/Uranus alignment (strongest and sweetest 25th/26th) bodes well for your friendships, fun and entertainment, while creative projects benefit from others input. Around the 10th and especially during an informative full moon in your relationship chart (14th), you’re aware of more responsibility on your shoulders, so don’t second guess or self-doubt especially when it comes to home and family matters; stay open to your faith and vision about the future instead. Then what seems like a step backward around 19th turns into two steps forward with the productive and constructive new moon (29th) focused on new beginnings linked to income and resources.
Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Planets are gathering in your sign from the 2nd, so getting your message across and your approach to things is more important to you than usual. Mercury (logic and communication) retrogrades from the 19th, indicating a big change of mind and direction, and the sun in your sign from 21st(winter solstice) and new moon on the 29th is about a ‘new you’. The exciting Jupiter/Uranus alignment, which builds all month (strongest 26th), is about sudden or unexpected expansion and opportunities linked to home and career that require a balance of priorities and endless optimism, but it’s like you’ve a guardian angel at your shoulder around 10th, 12th, 14thand 25th, which strengthens both your faith and sense of adventure.
Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
Lots of things are moving at your pace and in comfortable ways this month. Venus in your sign from 7th means feeling good in yourself, along with more harmony and balance with others. Around 10thand especially full moon on 14th friendship requires extra commitment; and income and money is highlighted too, requiring receptivity to receive (in other words, you’re worth it!). Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from 19th, and you’re fine with the change of mind and direction it brings. From then, you’re half reclusive, half extrovert, which feels like the right balance. Final week the planets align in unusually positive ways, bringing unexpected smiles and surprises. New moon (29th) is about pondering welcome new developments.
Pisces
19th February – 20th March

 

The sun energises your house of ambition and status until 21st, meaning you’re feeling empowered about long-term plans and ladders of success, especially career ladders. There could be important meetings or a new sense of authority around 10th, and an optimistic full moon (14th) carries a message to stay receptive to things going your way despite how things appear on the surface. Action-orientated Mars is in your sign from the 19th, so motivation is high. Mercury retrogrades on 19th too, encouraging a change of mind and/or direction. There’s reconnection and reunion with friends, and new moon (29th) is about new friends, groups and gatherings. Final week (25th and 26th) there’s potential for unexpected opportunities linked to income or resources.

November 2016 Horoscopes

Aries

21st March – 20th April

There are many unknowable and uncontrollable factors right now, but making peace with uncertainty means you enjoy the renewal and replenishment in store, especially during the security-conscious Supermoon (14th) spotlighting income and ownership. Or perhaps around 24th when work ambition and relationships are powerfully linked. Your ruling planet, mighty motivated Mars, moves into your friendship and support zone from the 9th, which means you’re more driven to seek out those you feel resonance with; those in harmony with your hopes and dreams, and preferred lifestyle. From the 21st and especially from the uplifting new moon (29th), there’s a focus on anything that opens you to new horizons and new perspectives.
Taurus
21st April – 21st May
These are interesting times for you, particularly for much of the month regarding partnerships, contracts and agreements. November opens with doors of opportunity, and midmonth (14th), there’s a spectacular Supermoon in your sign which points to up close and personal fulfilment in areas that matter most. Your ruler, harmony-loving Venus, moves into your travel and education chart from the 12th, which means expanding horizons and faith in your future. Final week (especially 24th/25th) can be a renewing, transformative time for this, so don’t try to control the controllable; instead feel the day-to-day adventure of unknown territory. New moon (29th) repeats this theme, and speaks of new long-term plans and ambition.
Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
You’re so ready for what November has in store, having already cleared a lot of clutter and therefore made space for new fulfilment. Your planet Mercury moves into your relationship zone from the 12th, followed by the Sun from the 21st, which means the adventure of partnership has increasing importance as the month goes on, and there’s a lot happening in this respect, especially after 21st. Relationships deepen with trust, and final week (especially 24th/25th) there’s opportunity to test that out by taking your attention off what you can’t control, deepening faith in your journey with others (creativity and fun soars at that time too). A new moon on the 29th is also about relationships, meaning you end the month with a new beginning.
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
It’s a positive start to the month, especially when you’re clear about your intentions. Venus (love and money) moves into your relationship zone from the 12th, just before a replenishing and resourceful Supermoon on the 14th, making it much easier to stand your ground about what matters most to you. Having the courage of your convictions is a repeating theme this month (especially 24th/25th), as is the idea of rebirth and renewal in relationships. A new moon on the 29this about new beginnings in store, especially related to health and fitness. You have plenty of faith, hope and clarity available this month, so use it.
Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There’s lots of emphasis on home and family for much of November, where you’re looking to make long term changes that enhance your feeling of security and wellbeing, There’s an ambitious and aspirational Supermoon on the 14th suggesting things moving on this, as well as in career too. Final week (strong on 24th) is about smoothing the way forward on all this, day to day. From 21st things start revolving around romance, fun, enjoyment, light-heartedness. You’re interested what makes your heart and soul sing; nothing less will do, and the new moon on the 29this about allowing and having faith in some new, entertaining adventures.
Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s emphasis on home and family, communication, and creativity this month. Spiritual and soulful Neptune is changing direction on the 20th, which corresponds with slow but sure change in you regarding key relationships, how you relate and want to relate with others; from being caught up in what was, to having faith in what could be and what will be. November is about not ignoring your feelings on certain matters that have been making you feel limited or restricted unnecessarily. Your sign is about clarity and logic, and often you leave emotion out in order to keep things making sense, but now it only makes sense to recognise, value and appreciate how you really feel.
Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
For much of the month things are revolving around finance, resources and income. Ownership, value and worth (and self-worth) are important themes, as are security and shared resources (especially around 14th, under the regenerative and revealing Supermoon). From the 21st the emphasis shifts to the importance of communication and dialogue (especially 29th). But there’s also a planet pattern building all month (strongest 24th/25th) involving Jupiter (expansion and luck) and Pluto (trust and transformation). It indicates change; in yourself, and linking to home and family too. The adventure of the unknown is the theme, and when your planet Venus joins Pluto (24th) it suggests it’s all revolving around certain relationships.
Scorpio
24th October – 21st November
November is very much about the ‘new you’ that you feel is happening right now. The sun is in your sign until 21st, so you’re busy recharging, renewing and replenishing. Creativity flows strongly during week one, along with your intuition; then midmonth (14th), there’s a Supermoon; a full moon that puts relationships, contracts and agreements in the spotlight, bringing matters to a head and moving stuck situations forward. Finance is a focus from 21st; especially 23rd (temporary obstacles) and new moon on 29th means new beginnings linked to income. Venus, Jupiter and Pluto are strongly linked during final week so pay no attention to control dramas; instead enjoy the endless evolution and expansion of your life right now.
Sagittarius
21st November – 21st December
Your ruling planet, the adventurous Jupiter, is part of November’s most important planet pattern. Jupiter is linking up with powerful Pluto, for a meeting that builds in strength all month (strongest 24th). It indicates huge desire for change and transformation, and huge capability for positive expansion and growth (nice to have both the desire and solution). It’s about tapping reserves and resources you didn’t know you had. It’s about your hopes and dreams, friendships, support network and links with groups, teams, and like-minded folk (especially 25th). Also, the sun moves into your sign from the 21st, which puts you at the centre of things, including the spotlight.
Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There might be some good news given or received during first week of November. From the 12th (just in time for a fun-filled Supermoon on 14th) Venus, planet of relationships and resources moves into your sign, which is about emotional and magnetic attraction to what you most value (meaning feel loving to attract love. Feel prosperous to attract prosperity). This gathers strength by the final week when Venus meets power planet Pluto and positive Jupiter (24th/25th), just before a spiritual new moon (29th) about new faith in your inner guidance. It means you’re catching a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel and being unstoppably productive about ways of moving towards it.
Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There’s a lot on your shoulders; lots of responsibility and pressure. That’s lovely if it’s all what you want, but Mars moves into your sign from 9th, which means sorting priorities and taking time to take stock about what matters most to you right now. The Supermoon on the 14this about balancing ambition with comfort zone, and again it’s about what matters most. You might be letting go of certain things by final week, especially around 24th and 25th. Some might not be happy about it, but it’s about your values and priorities not theirs. New moon on 29thindicates you’re dreaming of new adventures, and you’re attracting like-minded folk for the journey.
Pisces
19th February – 20th March

Lots happening this month; summed up by your planetary ruler Neptune ending retrograde (appearing to move backwards) on the 20th, which means a turning point or change in direction, where you feel things are moving forward again. The past has been important, yet you’re ready to face the future now (and put faith in it), and whatever you’ve felt has been holding you back is likely to shift (particularly during final week, around 24thor 25th). There’s lots of focus on communication this month, especially during the Supermoon (14th), which is also about new horizons, learning and travel. Then from 21st, and especially new moon on 29th, it’s about a new step up on your ladder of success.

New Moon in Scorpio 30th Oct 2016 –

At 5.38pm UK time it’s the annual new moon in Scorpio (for the UK and most of Europe, this is the second new moon of October – also known as the ‘black moon’).
Two weeks ago we had a supercharged full moon in Aries on the 16th, which brought each of us our own unique ‘bolt from the blue’- an unexpected event or situation that rocked our world in positive or negative ways (maybe a bit of both).
And now today there’s the new moon in Scorpio, which is a sign about trusting the process of what comes next. Scorpio is about the power of unknown territory and the relationship we have with it. It’s about hidden strength and hidden depths in ourselves and others… much like the tip of the iceberg, there’s always so much more going on underneath.
So it’s all about what you have to take on trust for now, or get comfortable with the uncertainty of. The dark side of Scorpio (and boy can it get dark), is the flip side of that – seeking power and control OVER what is known or knowable. It can become a very murky area indeed when there’s no trust, and especially no trust in the guidance of the heart and Soul, (which never seeks power and control over anything).
Scorpio season is about letting go of what we can’t control. It’s about not trying to control the uncontrollable; instead it’s surrendering (not submitting) to our version of God or higher power, which is the natural organising conciousness of the universe. It means relaxing into the idea that we don’t have to do it all ourselves, and that ‘things just have a way of working themselves out’ whether or not we know how right now (unknown territory, remember), and most importantly that we don’t have to fight or grasp for that.
Meaning, remembrance that we are held, heard and known by this power, whether we know it or not. That what we want matters and so is taken into account in the bigger picture. It’s a big ask for us to drop our guard and trust this but once we do it and receive results, it gets easier next time.

 

The Scorpio season is a very healing season because it’s about letting go of the tight grip of control that the intellectual mind likes to hold over everything. Some things (a lot of things!) are beyond current intellectual understanding, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t real and valid. This new moon is about the trust it is taking right now to grow and evolve into what’s new, and what’s waiting for us.

Full moon in aries, 16th October 2016

Hello! We are mid-way through beautiful October, and here in the north of England, autumn is starting to show itself. The annual full moon in Aries takes place this year on 16th October @ 05.23am (UK time). The Sun in Libra stands opposite Moon/Uranus in Aries, which certainly is a highly charged, potentially explosive combination (in both positive or negative ways). Moon and Uranus together can make situations feel unstable, disruptive, and emotionally unsettled. But it can also be about emotional breakthroughs, positive change, and independence that gets to the heart of who we are and how we want to relate with others.
Electric attraction is sparking chemistry in relationships like it hasn’t for some time, so sudden or unexpected romance, or love at first sight, is just as likely as sudden ‘bolt from the blue’ break-ups.
Sun in Libra has a keen sense of justice and fairness, and impulsive Aries leaps into action without a second thought (without a first thought if intuitive Uranus is added to the mix), to redress the balance.
We also have the very powerful Mercury in Libra square to Mars/Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury (logic and communication), Mars (action and momentum) and Pluto (powerful transformation) can also indicate an explosive combination and huge releases of energy. Mars and Pluto standing together hold huge power, and therefore huge potential for power struggles between people. It’s also an indicator of bottling things up, and any full moon seems to pop the cork on certain situations that have been building up (this one is maybe more likely than others)
Communication needs lots of self-awareness; lots of ‘being the bigger person’. Give benefit of the doubt repeatedly in order to dispel power struggles within yourself about others, and your relationship with others. And to stop the negative judgements from killing your peace and harmony and locking you out of your own heart centre (which is the most bleak place in the universe to be).
Most of us are not in positions of power that we can instantly make decisions that affect huge sways of people, so all we have is our own individual inner peace and harmony that we can control. Luckily it’s all we need. Our own corner of the world is where we can impact and influence… not via manipulation or pressure on others, but via our own self balance. This is what the Aries/Libra axis is all about.
I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling this potent full moon energy building for a few days now. It’s a full on full moon for sure, looking at the planet patterns. Which means it takes some focus and determination to get the best from it, but oh the rewards are great for doing so.
So unless things have been going totally swimmingly in all areas of your life for a while, it’s more than likely that any area not flowing and going 100% how you want it too has become harder to ignore this week… the obstacles, the brick walls, the delays, the wading through treacle, the aches and pains…. it all FEELS more intense during a full moon like this one, making you more restless, more sensitive or touchy and over-reactive.
It’s because full moons work like emotional amplifiers. If you’ve been doing a lot of thinking (focusing) about what you don’t want, and dealing with things you don’t want to deal with in certain areas, the resistance, or the pushing against it all, is MUCH more tangible right now.
BUT the sweet healing power of a full moon is that it’s GUIDANCE – all that emotional amplification means you get to see exactly where you would do well to ‘reset your mindset’ to something more positive, open, life-affirming, YOU-affirming. Something less judgemental, less rigid, less critical. Don’t underestimate the power of your mindset. How you think and feel regularly about things, is how things turn out, everytime. A little bit of open-heartedness and open-mindedness goes an awful long way during this full moon period, opening doors for miracles and marvels to manifest.
Happy full moon in Aries!

 

Virgo Solar Eclipse September 1st & Pisces Lunar Eclipse September 16th, 2016

 

This month (September 2016) there are two eclipses… a solar one (at the time of the new moon) in the sign of Virgo on the 1st. And a lunar (at the time of the full moon) in the sign of Pisces on the 16th.
Both indicate key stages in the lunar cycle – solar eclipses tend to indicate new phases or new beginnings, and lunar eclipses often indicate closure or letting go. Especially emotional closure. The Moon is about emotions and feelings, and so they are coming to the forefront this month, to be acknowledged, processed and integrated.
In astrology eclipses are about major turning points, where certain situations have been building up momentum through events for quite some time, for good or ill, and the events at eclipse times are release points, or trigger points for long-term change. You can look back with hindsight at an eclipse period and see how events around that time were movers and shapers of future direction.
September 1st Eclipse = Preparation is Key
During the September 1st eclipse, the planets suggest there has been pressure to act in a certain way, or to act on certain things, but the timing might not be quite right to take action, even if you want to. Withholding or holding fire doesn’t mean failure to launch, it is more about good preparation. The time for action might be more mid-month or beyond, when Mars aligns with the lunar eclipse.
Saturn square Neptune
This planet alignment has been one of the key themes of the year, and it figures highly in the eclipses, especially the solar eclipse on the 1st. This alignment has brought our fears to life in some respects, only for us to find out that our fears hold no power over us in reality.
It’s also about being very careful what we believe in or buy into, as what seems real often turns out to be just a façade. It’s been a year of remembering not to judge books by covers.
 
Mercury Retrograde
This retrograde period started near to the solar eclipse on 30th August, and will continue for most of the month, ending on the day of the Autumn equinox, 22nd September.
Although Mercury retrogrades three times a year, this one is a strong retrograde because:
–          Mercury is in Virgo, the sign which it rules.
–          North node is in Virgo, which is an indicator of opportunities or open doors that feel ‘fated’ or like ‘destiny’ to walk through. Mercury is therefore planet associated with this north node, which means it’s the planet to watch for the way these opportunities will manifest (Mercury is about communication, logic, pathways, transport, siblings and sibling relationships, and neighbours). As Mercury is Retrograde it means the concept of retrograde is also how those opportunities manifest. Retrograde means reconnection or returning to the past in some way… looking to the past, looking in a different direction, etc etc.
–          Mercury meets Jupiter at eclipse time. Jupiter is the planet of good luck, good fortune, faith and expansion. Jupiter uplifts what it touches, which gives this Mercury retrograde period a touch of miracle mindedness; a sparkle of extra confidence and self belief.
Lunar Eclipse = Ready to Receive
When the moon stands opposite the Virgo sun, from the sign of Pisces on the 16th, it also stands next to the asteroid Chiron. This asteroid is about healing, and specifically about being receptive to healing. Being open and accepting of solutions can be a challenge when the problem or symptom is dominant… it takes imagination to look past what looms large in our life, and be open to answers and opportunities. It also means accepting we are deserving of being given to in this way.
Ask and it is given is the mantra of the universe according to Law of Attraction, but the universe can only give by us being open to receive. The lunar eclipse on the 16th suggests events that highlight this idea of being receptive and open to solutions and problems. The time might be right for action too, according to Mars…
