Jul 22 2018    Sun   enters Leo

Happy birthday to all Leos.

If you are buying a gift for a Leo, make sure it is as fabulous as they are! Leos love to be the center of attention and anything that will entertain them and all of their many friends would be a right start in searching for this generous and noble sun sign's gift.

Leos also enjoy sharing their vast amounts of love and entertainment. They love a party!

The one thing that you do not want to do is forget their birthday!

ROOAAR!! Do not upset the Lion!

Leos love to be flattered and if you want to influence them to change something - the best way to do it is in a way that makes them feel better.  Never try to tell a Leo what to do or push them into something as this fixed sign will not budge an inch. 

Some will say that Leos can be difficult in close relationships. Part of the reason is that any planet that comes too close to the Sun becomes combust or weakened dramatically, like Icarus's wings. Dealing with a Leo one-to-one is not for the faint of heart. Lavishing sincere praise and plenty of tactfulness is necessary to keep the Lion or Lioness tame.

Leos key phrase is "I will" and they are born to rule.

The sun in mundane charts represents the leaders, presidents, royalty, CEO's, PTA Moms, anyone in a position of authority.  This is their time to shine and be appreciated.



Jul 9 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Jupiter   
13°Le20' D    13°Sc20' R

Mercury will square Jupiter three times in the next few weeks as it stations retrograde and direct again. This can show similar or related events happening which start around now. The following dates that Mercury will square Jupiter are on August 11th and August 28th.

 
Mentally pushing the limits -- overassimilation, overexpansion, overload of communications, proselytizing, arrogance, etc. Interest in learning and travel. Overconfident judgments. Opinions.

There may be some overconfidence and zealous opinions flying about at this time.   Any arguments now may just go on and on without resolution as the exaggerations and arrogance multiplies.

 This is a good time for studying a foreign language or cultural tradition and learning.  Be careful not to overestimate how much you can learn or get done today. 

Arguments and discussions go on for much longer than expected.  Reserve extra time for any meetings or group discussions. 

Avoid spending too much for information or on gadgets now as you might get carried away with the credit card.  This is not a good time for classes or talks as things may get carried away and words blown out of proportion.

This is not a good time to sign documents as expectations may be too grandiose for realization.  Ideas and events under this influence need to be worked on to become more practical else they may be setting people up for failure.  People may stretch themselves beyond their capacity in media, education or travel.



Jul 9 2018    Venus enters Virgo
People may become more practical in financial and love affairs.  Now is the time to clean up and organize personal possessions  Heath matters may also be emphasized now and people will do well with diets and exercise routines.  Avoid getting too caught up in the numbers, stats, as you may lose sight of the bigger pictures with love and money.
Avoid being too critical of loved ones.  Enjoy time spent with animals and work.  You may want to redecorate or reorganize your work area.  You may find satisfaction in helping others and being of service.  Analyzing health related topics, or issues related to women may produce sound results.

Jul 10 2018    Jupiter Station Direct
        13°Sc20' D    
Jupiter has been retrograde since March 8, 2018 and today will station direct.  This signifies that something positive or some sort of expansion that was held back since last March will start to work or manifest. 

At this time court cases, partnerships, travel, higher education, foreign people/places, or religion, luck and possibly money may finally arrive.  Something that you may have been struggling for the past four months may now start working or work out.

This is a positive time to begin a journey, whether mental or physical and to explore new ideas and philosophies.  Now is a positive time to publish, post blogs, videos, or anything online as it may become more successful.  Something that you posted back in March may start to become popular now for example.  Another way this may work out is something that you posted on ebay in the past few months may suddenly now be sold or get a lot of bids.


Jul 11 2018    Venus    Tri    Uranus
   02°Vi16' D    02°Ta16' D

Jul 12 2018    Sun    Opp    Pluto
   20°Cn01' D    20°Cp01' R

Sun in Cancer will be opposing Pluto. This aspect can cause some extreme changes in some part of your life. While this can turn into battles with authority, at the workplace or in career matters.  This aspect can also be used positively to turn your life around. If you feel yourself getting angry about something, stop, breath, think about it.  What is making you feel this way? What is the most positive and loving way to deal with it? Is it really worth battling over this particular issue?

There may be some major changes happening in your life with relationships, finances, education, home, family, children, or health related matters, try not to get carried away and do anything that you may regret later.

When one door closes, another one opens. Remain positive and constructive in times of adversity. You may realize that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Use your energies towards something positive and you will be greatly rewarded in the end.

Pluto is a very powerful planet. If used correctly, it can transform your life to the highest height. If not, it could help destroy you, so be aware of how you focus your energy for the next two days and use it positively.

One beneficial way to use this energy is to clean out any clutter at home.  Recycle and/or throw out anything that is no longer useful.  This aspect may be obsessive at times so focus that intense energy towards research or learning something new.

Things that you do today and tomorrow could set you on the track of success or failure, it's all up to you!

Beware of abuse from those in positional power.  Be careful when dealing with any authority/government figures or in professional matters as things could become intense.

Possible abuses or rudeness from people in the workplace are likely in the next couple of days, try not to let their hurtful and callous behavior cause you to lose your temper.   Use any stressful experience with others to make yourself stronger and wiser.

Jul 12 2018    Solar Eclipse      
20°Cn41'

Traditionally the effects of eclipses were judged by how the sky appeared that night. Eclipses were originally studied to understand the effects that they had on entire cities of countries. Many years later when astrologers started delineating personal horoscopes, they could determine whether an eclipse would have a direct effect upon an individual's life.

[This eclipse on July 12th is only viewable at the South Pole]

In ancient times eclipses were always considered bad omens.  But if the sky was cloudy and the eclipse could not be seen, then the city or country was spared any malefic effects.  So not being able to witness the eclipse was very good news.

“Eclipses were considered particularly hazardous as is shown in the communication found in the archives of Nineveh from a priest to King Ashurbanipal:

‘To my Lord the King of all Countries from your servant Bel-u. May the gods, Bel, Nabu, and Shamash bless your Majesty. If an eclipse occurs but is not observed in the capital such an eclipse is considered not to have happened. The capital means the city in which the King is staying. Now there were clouds everywhere we thus do not know whether the eclipse occurred or not. . . I have already written everything to your majesty about the portents of an eclipse that happened in the months Adarru and Nisannu. And as to the apotropaic [the turning away of evil] rites for the eclipses that are already performed, what harm can be done if there was none? . . . The great gods who live in the city of your majesty have covered up the sky and not shown the eclipse. That is what the King should know, that this eclipse has no relation to your majesty or his country. On this count the king should be happy. . . ‘” (The Encyclopedia of Astrology; Sandra Shulman; Pg 27)


Eclipses are *hot spots* and if they closely aspect a point or planet in your chart within a degree, you might have a significant event in the coming year or two.

Eclipses repeat every 19 years (approx.) and if they are prominent in a person's natal chart, they may indicate two related and prominent events in a person's life:  Marriage, divorce, moving, births, etc.

  • The last time we had a solar eclipse close to 20 Cancer (17 years ago) was on Jan 9, 2001. 
The powerful effects of an eclipse are not often felt on the actual day of the celestial event but later on when other planets aspect the eclipse point.  Astrologers will be monitoring transits and progressions to the eclipse degree for timing of important developments for individuals and the world.

Outer planetary stations near eclipses can signify earthquakes, fires, and other significant events that affect many people or whole countries. 


    
Jul 14 2018    Venus    Tri    Saturn
   04°Vi39' D    04°Cp39' R

Inhibitions which preserve stability: loyalty, duty, economy. Diplomacy. Good judgment. Business agreements. Conservatism.

Venus trine Saturn is a positive aspect for relationships, career, and finances. The planet Venus is forming a very positive aspect with Saturn and this makes it an excellent time to start a new relationship of any kind.

There are many more ways that Saturn and Venus work together. If you have dealings with older people (Saturn) or people who are suffering, then now is a good time to find help for them. You may come up with a new solution to provide support or money (Venus) by reaching out and showing support for international causes.

Whether you are balancing your bills or financing a new business, now it a good time to do it.  Venus and Saturn are also excellent for any creative/artistic endeavors or dealings with children.





Jul 5 2018    Sun    Tri    Jupiter
13°Cn23' D    13°Sc23' R

People will be feeling positive and generous. Intuition and other abilities are expanded.

As a result, this is an excellent day to socialize, go out and mingle with others, and to expand your horizons.  This is also a good transit for any legal affairs.

This is a fortuitous time for everyone to travel, learn something new, and be involved any work in publishing, law, international relations and/or spiritual endeavors.  This is also an auspicious time to be with family and focus on home or real estate projects.


Jul 5 2018    Mercury    Opp    Mars
   08°Le45' D    08°Aq45' R

Impulsive reactions. Fast pace. Trouble, problems and irritations. Mechanical breakdowns. Arguments and conflicts.

At this time new information may confront people and cause arguments.  This is not a positive time to work things out with an adversary as words exchanged may become quite heated.  Delay any contentious discussions for a later date.

This is a good time for researching information that involves young men, weapons, iron, machinery, or fighting.  You may obtain the necessary facts to act decisively now.   Information may come in fast and furious so taking a break to relax the mind when things become too much is called for.  Meditation, resting and taking a vacation may be necessary now.


Jul 8 2018    Sun    Tri    Neptune
   16°Cn23' D    16°Pi23' R

Intuition is heightened with the Sun in this water sign, so spiritual and religious feelings may also be more powerful now.  The Sun trine Neptune brings out the surreal, imaginative and possibly confusing nature of life around this time.

You may be feeling more idealistic with plans and relationships.  Trusting your instincts today as they will lead to you where you need to be or what you need to do.

On a less positive side, people may be feeling a bit lazier now.  This is the time for creating beautiful memories that will last a life time. This is a wonderful time to enjoy photography, movies, music, the beach, ocean, or anything creative and dealing with pictures. 




Jun 25 2018    Venus    Sqr    Jupiter

    13°Le40' D    13°Sc40' R  

Excessive sociability. The desire to "party". Dramatic, extravagant gestures. Overindulgence. Overvaluing something.

A time for indulgence and spending time with loved ones. You may get more blessings than you ever expected now. This is an auspicious time for love and romance!  However, there may be a tendency to get carried away with eating, drinking, spending money or showing affection.  Enjoy the good feelings while trying to avoid being excessive or too indulgent. 
This can be a very emotional time and the potential to confide in the wrong person or make a poor judgement call in a social situation or relationship may happen.  No matter how carried away you may feel in gatherings or events, avoid letting yourself go too far emotionally or financially.  Now is the time to rely on your own moral judgement and not be influenced by others.  Being discreet will help you avoid any drama.


Jun 26 2018    Mars    stations Retrograde
   
09°Aq13' R        

Mars retrogrades every two years and two months.  Mars will be retrograde from now through August 27, 2018 - approximately two months.

One of the ways that Mars being retrograde may affect some people is finding themselves going back to someone or something. This could mean people who have broken up may want to go back and give their relationship (or marriage) another try.  It might also mean, going back and trying to initiate a relationship with someone that was passed by before.

Of course, it is not always about romance, it could be going back to anything that was not done before.

With Mars retrograde, the courage to go back is strong and this could lead to some positive changes in people's lives. Going back and trying out for a job or a place on a team. It could also mean, trying something for a second time, like taking a test again. If there was something that you had wanted to do before and didn't for whatever reason (especially if it was because you lacked the confidence), now with mars retrograde you may be given the courage to go back and do it now, with ease!

Because Mars is closer to the earth when retrograde, tempers and temperatures may rise higher than usual figuratively and literally..  Be careful to avoid any fights or situations which could become dangerous. Also that things may slow down now so expect some delays, aggravations, and a general slowing down in activities where Mars is placed in your natal chart.

 Go with the flow and follow your heart and see where Mars takes you back to and you may find success. Success that you almost missed out on!


June 27 2018  Full Moon
6 Capricorn

The full Moon at 6 Capricorn signifies, among other things, boundaries, laws, authority, tradition, suffering people and the government.   This theme will be emphasized more than usual with Saturn in the mix.  Saturn conjuncts the Moon and opposes the Sun.


Full Moons bring things to fruition and also reveal what the next step should be taken with regards to things begun two weeks earlier on the previous New Moon.

This may reveal some restrictions and hardships for leaders.  It may also result in new boundaries and restrictions being enforced now.  This is a time of setting down firm foundations which will endure the test of time.




 
Jun 27 2018    Sun    Opp    Saturn
   05°Cn51' D    05°Cp51' R

   Difficulties in maintaining control over one's life. Problems, obstacles, limitations, inhibitions and delays. Feelings of insecurity which stimulate ambition and the desire to prove one's self-worth. Difficult judgments and decisions.

Around this time one may face trials, tribulations and delays in dealings with authority or reaching one's goal.  The hurdles one must overcome may become clear now and the next course of action decided - give up or trudge through the hard work and sacrifices necessary.

This can be a depressing time but one that divides those who reach their goals and those who do not.  How important is it to you to obtain a certain achievement?  Is it really worth the time, energy and toil?  Continue on and face possible failure or glory?  Only by being realistic will one pass through this phase successfully. 

Authority figures may put obstacles in your path or deny your wishes.  How you respond to this will decide your future.  There is also a karmic element to this as Saturn is the planet of Karma and the Sun is our life force, they are natural enemies to each other. Saturn may cause some leaders, politicians, and other prominent people to learn some harsh lessons if they have taken too much for granted. Saturn may release some of the "coming around that goes around" now and any transgressions may come back to haunt some people while those who have followed the rules and tried to do what was right may receive their just rewards.


Jun 29 2018    Mercury enters Leo


An enthusiastic quest for knowledge. Being proud of  learning abilities, and believing in the saying that learning is fun. There may be a tendency to be a know-it-all.

Mercury in Leo is loud, proud and may be fixed in opinions.  At this time the news stories may be more fun or outrageous than usual.  There may be some 'pomp and circumstance', awards, fun, contests, celebration, parties . . .  surrounding Mercurial topics: news, transportation, communications, information, data, accounting, emails, cell phones, books, literature, schools, young people, learning, memory, intellect, standardized tests, stationary products, pens/pencils, measurements, statistics, arguments/debates, accountants, teachers, messengers, diplomats, journalists, bankers, inventors, speakers/speeches, booksellers, clerks, etc.


Jun 30 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Uranus

    01°Le58' D    01°Ta58' D  

This causes missed messages, computer problems, delays in traveling, cell phone problems, lost emails/texts, electricity going out . . . anything that deals with computers, communication, traveling, electricity, etc, may be disrupted.

Try not to let this bother you too much. Things will work themselves out after today. Take a few deep breaths and put things in perspective. Give others the benefit of the doubt if they say that they didn't get your message as they probably didn't.

Back in the old days, before voice mail, we used to get busy signals when we tried to call a friend who was on another call. There was nothing more irritating than that "Eh Eh Eh" tone the phone company used, created by some evil genius at the phone company to make people go berserk. This can be the effect of Mercury square Uranus.

Speaking of genius, Mercury and Uranus are not all bad together as they create that too. Brilliant thoughts, creative impulse, new and improved approaches to life. So now is the time to come up with a master plan for whatever issues you may need to address or embark upon intellectual pursuits.

Today you may finally figure out how to fix that computer problem or other machinery that has been broken for a while, devise a new successful business plan, write some incredible science fiction, master a new subject, anything new and novel that interests you - today will be the best day for it.

If you do have to travel today, leave early and expect delays or obstacles along the way. If you are communicating to many people, follow up afterwards to be sure that they received your message and understood exactly what you meant. Try not to rush through things or mistakes and misunderstandings may cause problems.







Jun 18 2018    Neptune Station    Retrograde
       16°Pi29' R

Neptune is stationing retrograde today which may result in people going back and dealing with substance abuse issues, isolation, institutions or attending to spiritual issues.

Neptune will remain retrograde from now until the end of the year - Nov 24, 2018.


Neptune rules over water, pharmaceuticals, intoxicants, addictions, psychic influences, fanaticism, music, photography, scandals, deception,  propaganda, the unconscious, confusion, mysteries, and the ocean among other things.  

One way that this retrograde may work out is that something related to Neptune may be put on hold now only to resurface at the end of the year to be dealt with.  There may be a holding back or going back to a Neptune related activity from now through November.

This is an auspicious time to return to activities begun at an earlier time that is described by Neptune.  Negative influences of Neptune may be held down or pushed aside but will need to be dealt with again in November.

   
Jun 19 2018    Mercury    Tri    Jupiter
   13°Cn59' D    13°Sc59' R  

Good judgment. Taking in the full picture. Speculative thought. Positive thinking. Interest in learning. Teaching.

This is an auspicious time to take a new class, publish works, travel, give and receive information.  There may be many theories or ideas bandying about.  Some may feel very confident in their beliefs or judgements now.  Stories may get exaggerated and/or spread around far and wide.   Using this time to research, spread information, teach or learn new things is most favored under this aspect.  This is also a good time to embark upon any educational projects/plans.

Mercury represents the facts, clues or precise data of a situation while Jupiter provides common sense, morals and 'the big picture.'  When these two planets of intellect work together you get a perfect blend of knowledge and know-how.  Information is collected accurately and spread or used in the best way.



Jun 20 2018    Mercury    Tri    Neptune
   16°Cn29' D    16°Pi29' R   

Mercury is applying to trine Neptune which makes this an ideal time for dreaming, creative writing, art, music, spirituality, psychic or mediumistic experiences and it is an excellent time for a psychic or astrology reading!

Neptune gives insight and Mercury understanding, so combined they lift the veil to the other side and allow communication across different dimensions. Intellectual borders dissolve under this aspect.

However, this is not the week for dealing with facts, figures, or detailed work as Neptune tends to muddle things on the material plane. This combination can cause some scandals and misunderstandings when dealing with everyday communications, interactions or financial matters. Missed calls and misplaced messages are common so try to give others the benefit of the doubt in these matters.

If you hear any incredible news or gossip it is best to wait and see if it's really true before acting upon it. Beware of lies, deceptions, fake news, and scam artists as they will be very active this week.

How strongly this will affect you on a personal level depends upon how this trine interacts with your natal chart. Mercury trine Neptune can give wonderful experiences with music, art, psychology, and mysticism. It also allows a person to use these talents in constructive ways as trines can be unstoppable flow of energy (which can be destructive if you are unaware of it's influence.)

Although paranormal abilities may manifest more strongly, the flip side to psychic is over-sensitive. This can cause emotions to flow more readily and feelings can be easily hurt. You may send or receive and email or text and take it the wrong way. It is important to be very clear in all communications, perhaps making a direct phone call instead and double-checking any work emails to avoid getting into trouble.

You may find your most productive work will be done in solitude (as Neptune is associated with the 12th house of isolation). Be aware of any *signs* or unusual events that may be the result of influences from the other side.

Neptune rules the ocean, water and the feet. Water wears down and dissolves matter. Like a worn out rug from many people walking on it or sugar dissolving in a glass of water. This aspect can result in a loss of some kind. Neptune teaches us not to become attached to samsara or material world that we live in. Buddhism teaches us that this world is just an illusion (Neptune). What we think of as solid and permanent, really isn't.

Neptune also rules viruses, drugs and alcohol. Being careful with any prescriptions and avoiding intoxicants is important now.   Beware of a tendency to want to escape reality with alcohol or other indulgences. Also a general feeling of apathy or laziness may also be strong now.

Sacrifice is also a Neptune keyword, so volunteer work and helping the less fortunate may benefit you as well as others. 

While Neptune can cause drug addiction, the positive side of Neptune (spirituality) can help a person.   This is a positive time to practice meditation a/o spirituality.  Also at this time you may have more appreciation for poetry, music, art, film, and photography. 


Jun 21 2018    Sun    enters Cancer
Summer Solstice

Today will be the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. The day that the Sun moves into the cardinal water sign of Cancer.  It's officially summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

Solstices are a major event for everyone, especially western tropical astrologers. This is the ingress or entry of the Sun into Cancer and the chart for this moment is studied in order to predict what to expect in the coming months.

With the Sun in Cancer, leaders may have to deal with issues centering around the caring and nurturing of others.  Patriotism, family and domestic security will be prominent topics being discussed and dealt with now.  Cancer is a water sign and not the most rational so people may react more emotionally and/or out of fear to any perceived threats.

On a positive note, people will be more likely to extend a helping hand to others, treat everyone like family.  Prominent stories in the news may center around caring for animals, the elderly and the less fortunate.


Jun 21 2018    Venus    Opp    Mars
   09°Le03' D    09°Aq03' D   

Passionate or very emotional reactions. Sexual tension and confrontation that results from love matters. Difficulties with assertiveness and cooperation.

The last time Venus opposed Mars was on May 24, 2016.  Around this time we had the Orlando Pulse Nightclub terror attack and Prince passed away from a drug overdose.  This may be a time of passionate confrontations.

This is not a good time to start or attempt to settle an argument with people you feel strongly about.  Wait until after the effects of this transit pass.

On a positive side, this aspect may spark a new, passionate love affair or passion for a creative or financial project.  Keeping things in perspective and not getting carried away will help prevent things (budgets, projects etc) from getting carried away. 

If you are starting a new relationship, creative, financial or other project, expect some opposition of some kind.  Whether it is you going back and forth in your own mind or an outside entity opposing it in some way.  Incorporating opposing forces is the best way to handle the situation and lead to success.


Jun 23 2018    Sun    Sxt    Uranus   
01°Cn44' D    01°Ta44' D  

A keen interest in ideas which are progressive or innovative. Scientific mind. Inventive. A questioning mind. Mental excitement. Taking action which changes things and brings improvement. Joining with others for a specific cause or purpose.

Many new and original ideas being revealed by leaders this week.  Shocking or upsetting events may develop as the direct result of a leaders decision which could lead to rebellion.

Leaders will discuss the internet and other forms of technology now. Advanced technology is utilized and discussed. There may be some advancement in science or metaphysics. A new study may be released which circulates quickly.This is an auspicious time to think outside the box and try a new way of doing things. Now is the time for implementing or introducing a new or unorthodox way of doing something.  It may be shocking or disruptive at first but will work out positively.


Jun 23 2018    Mercury    Opp    Pluto
   20°Cn28' D    20°Cp28' R   

Mercury is about information, letters, texts, all types of communication.  Pluto is about deep, dark, hidden places.  The places that we are afraid to face in ourselves and others. 

Post Secret is a perfect example of Mercury/Pluto energy.  A place where people tell their deepest darkest secrets.  It can be a liberating experience to share our worries with a trusted friend or professional.  Just get it out in the open, face our fears.

We may eventually learn that no matter what happens, in the end, the feeling of 'the fear' was the worst part.

Under this aspect, we may decide to uncover the truth of the matter.  This is wonderful for researching a new subject as under this aspect we will delve deeply and be absorbed for hours finding out all that we can.

However, this can be a negative influence if we turn the magnifying glass on another person's personal life.  Beware of becoming suspicious over something trivial. There may be  tendency to cross the line and invade other people's personal space. 

It is normal to wonder about what a partner is doing when not around you but how far you go in investigating and questioning others about it can be the problem. 

Being aware that you may feel more suspicious than necessary today and avoid compromising relationships that matter by becoming hostile or intrusive.

Finding the truth is the real meaning of this aspect. There is more than one way to obtain the information that you desire. Being honest is also important during this time or you may find others may become suspicious of you!

Focus your investigative energies on doing things that will improve your life and those around you.  There may be some things kept secret from you, but that doesn't mean it is necessarily bad.



Jun 12 2018    Mercury enters Cancer

You place importance on communication within the family. Information about your family and its background is also important to you. For instance you may like to collect family photos or study family history. You look after yourself and others by communicating emotional issues.

Mercury entering Cancer will cause more communications surrounding mothers, home, family, real estate and patriotic matters.  Expect more sentimental and emotional discussions during this time.  People will express their need for security and protection.  Although things may be quieter with Mercury in a mute sign, feelings run deep.  Being more sensitive and swaying people emotionally rather than using facts and figures will be more successful now.


Jun 13 2018    Mercury    Sxt    Uranus
  01°Cn22' D    01°Ta22' D  

Intensity of mind. Experimental attitude. Expression of radical or unusual viewpoints. Technical interest. Inventiveness.

Mercury and Uranus working together bring about new ideas and emphasis on technology.  This is a good time to do work or communicate electronically.  New information and ways to do things are successful now.   This is an auspicious time for learning a new software or integrating newer technology in your daily life.  This is also a good time for planning or communicating radical or revolutionary thoughts.  There may be some unusual or shocking news at this time.  Also new frontiers in science and space may become prominent now.  This is an auspicious time to introduce a new invention or way of doing things which may produce excellent results and become a success.


Jun 13 2018    Venus enters Leo

The planet of love enters the sign of fun and romance on Friday (the day Venus rules)!  Venus in Leo is about showing love in a fun and dramatic way.   At this time some women in show business may be more prominent.  There may also be more people getting money from real estate or speculations. 

This is a playful time where socializing will be most enjoyable.  Throwing parties, taking a vacation and just enjoying life is highlighted now.  Children will benefit at this time as well as the arts and musical entertainments.  Now is the time to enjoy the theater, concerts and visit local taverns to meet and mingle with others.

This is also a heavenly time for finding and enjoying romantic love.  A delightful aspect for singles to go on dates and couples to rekindle their romance.


Jun 14 2018    Venus    Sqr    Uranus
   01°Le26' D    01°Ta26' D   

Intense social excitement. Unusual displays of feeling. Unconventional behavior. Artistic rebellion. Unstable feelings.

This may be a time of some young women protesting or acting in a shocking manner.  Young women may become news stories for something new, unusual or genius.  

There may be disruptions or unexpected events in relationships.  People may suddenly break-up without any warning or forethought.  Or partners may show their love in an unconventional  or surprising way.  There may also be some surprises with finances  or from banks.

There may be sudden fluctuations with money or the stock market.  Unusual or taboo relationships or social interactions may occur today.  Surprises with art or in socializing.


Jun 15 2018    Mercury    Opp    Saturn   
06°Cn41' D    06°Cp41' R    Tr    Tr

Narrow, focused thinking. Exclusion. Limitations in transport or communication. Overly exacting judgments. Delays.

Mercury opposite Saturn can cause pessimism, delays and obstacles in communications.  This can lead to malfunctions with computers, cell phones and other telecommunications related devices or structures. 

Mercury and Saturn are in the 'transportation and communication signs' of Gemini/Sagittarius so this may be a day of problems with traveling, education, publicity, and emails/documents. Be prepared to have to struggle with some difficulties before all is said and done.

To get the most from this aspect, you will have to work hard, deal with some type of suffering and triple check everything.

This aspect does not make communications easier but through hard work, perseverance and maybe a little help from older/experienced minds this could be a time of some significant academic, historical, or literary achievement. Be prepared to struggle with discussions, paperwork, children, or ideas and take the time to cover all of your bases.  In the end you may produce an outstanding accomplishment which could win awards in the future and/or that may stand the test of time






Jun 5 2018    Sun    Cnj    Mercury   
15°Ge20' D    15°Ge20' D 

Mental strength. Intense thought. Consciousness of personal intent. Stimulus to communicate in speech or writing. Effectiveness in coordinating one's various activities. Mobility -- travel. Ability to meet up to situational demands.

This is a good time to brainstorm and come up with ideas regarding how to organize finances and other practical matters.  Figuring out what to do with all that you have at your disposal, including personal talents.


Jun 5 2018    Venus    Opp    Pluto   
20°Cn50' D    20°Cp50' R   

Relationship crisis. Manipulation in relationships. Jealousy. Sexual tension. Territorial disputes. Obsession.

Today Venus makes a hard aspect to Pluto. This may manifest in different ways since Venus can signify: money, beauty, childbirth, jewelry, luxury items, music, art, fashion, poetry, gardening, flowers, and very often relationships. Pluto represents powerful underground forces, mafia, plumbing, organized crime, gangs, ISIL, drug dealers, human traffickers, drastic transformations and upheavals which end in permanent changes.

The stand-off between Venus and Pluto may be some shocks or upsets in relationships. Oppositions make us aware of what is going on. Things may get unexpectedly intense in a relationship. This may be a positive or intense experience which will forever alter both sides.

If you notice that things are getting more emotional or dramatic than usual, try to keep a cool head and know that this is a short-lived aspect (a day or two). If things do get to be too much, try to avoid any kind of confrontation until a later time.

If relationships are not affected, be sure to keep an eye on finances. There may be some secret siphoning of funds when you least expect it, in other words, identity theft or any type of theft. Avoid doing financial transactions on insecure networks and double check your receipts.

For the next couple of days it is important with relationships and finances to be "above board" about everything.  At the same time, be secure with your money and personal possessions. If you feel suspicious about something, try to be level-headed.



Jun 6 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Neptune   
16°Ge27' D    16°Pi27' D  

Mercury is applying to square Neptune this week may cause more daydreaming, creative writing, art, music, spirituality, psychic or mediumistic experiences and it is an excellent time for spiritual endeavors.

Neptune gives insight and Mercury understanding, so combined they lift the veil to the other side and allow communication across different dimensions. Borders dissolve under this aspect.

This is not the time for dealing with facts, figures, or detailed work as Neptune confuses things on the material plane. This combination can cause mishaps and misunderstandings when dealing with everyday communications, interactions or financial matters. Missed calls and misplaced messages are common so try to give others the benefit of the doubt in these matters.

If you hear any incredible news or gossip it is best to wait and see if it's really true before acting upon it. Beware of scandals, lies, deceptions and scam artists as they will be very active this week.

How strongly this will affect you on a personal level depends upon how this square interacts with your natal chart. Mercury square Neptune can give wonderful abilities in music, art, psychology, and mysticism. It also allows a person to use these talents in constructive ways as squares can be very productive (or destructive if you are unaware of it's influence.)

Emotions flow more readily and feelings can be easily hurt. You may send or receive and email or text and take it the wrong way. It is important to be very clear in all communications, perhaps making a direct phone call instead and double-checking any work emails to avoid getting into trouble.

You may find your most productive work will be done in solitude (as Neptune is associated with the 12th house of isolation). Be aware of any *signs* or unusual events that may be the result of influences from the other side.

Neptune rules the ocean, water and the feet. Water wears down and dissolves matter. This aspect can result in a loss of some kind. Neptune teaches us not to become attached to samsara or material world that we live in. Buddhism teaches us that this world is just an illusion after all. What we think of as solid and permanent, really isn't.

Neptune also rules viruses, drugs and alcohol. Being careful with any prescriptions and avoiding intoxicants is important now.

Sacrifice is also a Neptune keyword, so volunteer work and helping the less fortunate will also benefit you in a difficult Neptune transit.

While Neptune can cause drug addiction, the positive side of Neptune (spirituality) can help a person overcome these problems.

The Serenity prayer is a perfect example of Mercury and Neptune:

God grant me the Serenity

to accept the things I

cannot change;

Courage to change the

things I can and

Wisdom to know the

difference.

Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a

time; Accepting hardship

as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as He did, this

sinful world as it is, not

as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make

all things right if I

surrender to His will;

That I may be reasonably

happy in this life, and

supremely happy with Him

forever in the next.

Amen


Jun 7 2018    Sun    Sqr    Neptune   
16°Ge27' D    16°Pi27' D   


Lack of clarity. Unknown factors which challenge judgment. The practical use of art and music. Impressionability. Escapist urges. Misunderstandings. Visions which deceive. Mistakes and errors in judgment. Foggy or sloppy conditions.

Things take on a dreamy, sleepy mood as the Sun squares Neptune.  This creates  idealism from leaders who may express their hopes and wishes now.  Scandals and obfuscation may also be prominent now.

People may not be seeing leaders accurately now.  Conversely, some leaders may be more inspirational now.  Personally, it may be a difficult time to make decisions as things and actions may be unclear.

This is not a helpful time for dealing with facts and figures as this is a more creative / spiritual influence.  A positive time for art, music, and spending time by water.  Enjoying a good movie or book is also favored today. This is a perfect time for creativity, meditating, and spiritual pursuits.


May 29, 2018  Full Moon
8 Sagittarius 10'



We have all heard the effects of the full Moon, when emergency room visits escalate and people act a bit more "loony" than usual. Some claim that this is an old superstition but it is a scientific fact that the ocean tides rise as the ocean on the side of Earth facing the moon gets pulled toward the Moon. This creates high tide and pulls the ocean water away from the earth.

Although there doesn't seem to be any scientific proof of the full Moon effects on humans, the fact that the human body is made up of approximately 80% of water, it is easy to understand why the full Moon may have such an effect on people, especially those with an emphasis of water in their charts (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).

If tensions have been running high, the Full Moon or opposition between the Sun and Moon, is the time when it all comes out.  Confrontations may occur and matters that may have been kept 'under the surface' are put on the table to force everyone to finish it or decide what the next step is.

The Full Moon represents the fruition of what was begun at the previous New Moon two weeks earlier, in this case it was a New Moon in Taurus back on May 15th.  This Full Moon in sign of Sagittarius means that international issues, traveling, higher education, law, religion, philosophy, publishing, internet, and prophecy will be highlighted now.

May 29 2018    Mercury enters Gemini

A love of conversation and information. Fast talking, collecting and networking knowledge and data. Enjoying books, letters, magazines, the media, computers and anything else that helps to learn and communicate.

Mercury enters its sign of dignity, Gemini.  This may cause some significant news or information to be released.  Now is an excellent time to collect and organize data.  Mercury in Gemini will cause many discussions on-line as well as important documents to sign or decisions to be made. 

Thinking is clear, concise.  Stories by and about scientists, mathematicians, computer experts, secretaries, writers, reporters, teachers, lecturers may be prominent in the news now.

Be careful to analyze everything you hear or read about now as Mercury in Gemini can be the masterful trickster and result in some truly bizarre stories.    Always try to keep the big picture in mind and not get too caught up in the details. 

However this is a fun time for talking to people from all walks of life,  word games and other brain challenges.


Jun 1 2018    Mercury    Tri    Mars   
05°Ge31' D    05°Aq31' D   
Decisiveness. Mental assertiveness. Honesty. Practical solutions. Technical skills. Fast work, rapid progress.

Information and communications will be fast and furious now.  This is a good time to get the word out and make decisions.  Thinking and information will be quick and direct now which will prove successful.  Now is also an auspicious time to speak directly to people who you want to address.  This is not the time for subtle hints or 'beating around the bush.'  Say what you mean and mean what you say and things will move in the right direction.  Establishing new computers, cell phones or any other technologies/machinery that promotes communications and information will be quicker and easier than usual now.   Local traveling should also be smooth and done faster than usual, however, be aware of road rage and/or speeding which may also occur.  The rapid fire communications may be overwhelming at times so be sure to take a break if it becomes overwhelming. 



Jun 1 2018    Venus    Tri    Jupiter
15°Cn31' D    15°Sc31' R   

Comfortable social conditions. Generosity and friendliness. Big productions or gatherings. Beautiful appearances.

There may be a tendency to overindulge a bit at home or on family members.   There may be a lot of emotions pouring in from partners, family and others now.  Enjoy the moment and go with how you feel.  Now is  a safe time to express how you feel and be accepted and supported for it.

This is a wonderful time to socialize and to re-connect with people   Convivial gatherings and other social events should be most enjoyable now.  It is not advisable to make any large purchases now (as you may tend to buy more than you should).  Also, creative projects, enjoying art, music, foreign things/topics/people/places, and higher education may be a source of pleasure.


Jun 2 2018    Venus    Tri    Neptune   
16°Cn25' D    16°Pi25' D  

Sensitivity and taste in love and art. Enjoyment of a fantasy. Accurate aesthetic judgments. Desire for distant things.

May 22 2018    Mercury    Sxt    Neptune   
16°Ta17' D    16°Pi17' D  

The use of imagination. Accurate intuitive thinking. Appreciation of subtleties. Artistic appreciation. Vision.

Fantasies, ideals and working in seclusion are emphasized at this time.  This is a positive time for creative thinking and imagination.  This is not the best time to work out facts and figures as details may get muddled due to some missing or confusing data.

This is auspicious for researching the ocean, spirituality, or other Neptune-related endeavor.    New information may come out around this time which may be idealistic or compassionate.

This is a wonderful time to create or enjoy videos, movies, poetry, fiction, art, music, psychic phenomena, or spending time by the water.  Helping the less fortunate and even spending some time alone may be most productive and satisfying now.


May 23 2018    Mercury    Opp    Jupiter   
16°Ta34' D    16°Sc34' R  

Mentally pushing the limits -- over-assimilation. Interest in learning and travel. Overconfident judgments. Opinions.

Jupiter expands or massively spreads information.  This could indicate multiple viral news stories breaking out at this time.  Multiple new development happening almost all at once. 

This could cause problems with traveling, publishing, higher education, foreign affairs, group efforts, and places of entertainment.  Difficulties with religious differences may also be prominent at this time.

There may be a conflict of those claiming to know the truth.  Mercury and Jupiter shows that any religious, philosophical or other conflicts in what opposing parties believe will not be settled any time soon.  Participants in debates are forceful in their ideology. 

Facts and figures may also be exaggerated during this time and/or spread widely.  This is not a good time to negotiate deals as neither party will want to give in to the other.



May 23 2018    Sun    Tri    Mars   
02°Ge54' D    02°Aq54' D   

The urge to take action and make things happen. Initiative. Decisiveness. Accomplishment. Physical and mental energy. Competitive drives function positively. Self-motivated action. Ability to handle stress. Problem solving capability.

Things may seem to speed up now in general with Sun being strongly influenced by Mars.  Leaders may act swiftly and decisively.  Arguments may begin and end abruptly. 

This is an auspicious time to do something physical.  There is a great deal of energy to back up any decisions made now.  This is a positive time for young men, armed forces and anything dealing with Mars. 



May 25 2018    Jupiter    Tri    Neptune   
16°Sc19' R    16°Pi19' D   
Jupiter trine Neptune is an expansion of the imagination. So people who are involved with creative work may also find that they are able to produce more substantial work during this time. The ideas just keep coming and an accumulation of a mountain of good material could result from this aspect.

Jupiter also expands psychic abilities (Neptune) and spiritual work so now is an excellent time to go on a pilgrimage or embark upon religious or spiritual pursuits. This is also a good time for any psychic related activities as they may produce many positive and healing results now.

Be wary to not let the less savory side of Jupiter trine Neptune affect you - laziness or becoming maudlin.  Neptune can lead to daydreaming or fantasizing while Jupiter may expand these tendencies.  Making the effort to bring your dreams to reality is the way to make the most of this aspect between Jupiter/Neptune.

Since Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces and Neptune the modern day ruler - people with Pisces planets may be strongly affected as well as any area of life ruled by Pisces.  These include hospitals, prisons, zoos, the ocean, water, drugs, pharmaceuticals, and secretive activities.

Trusting your intuition may help you out of a difficult situation. Also, taking some time to be alone to rejuvenate or work in solitude may be more helpful than usual.  As usual, be careful with drinking or other intoxicants and be careful with new medications during this time.


  • NOTE:  The last time Jupiter formed a trine to Neptune was on December 2, 2017 a few days after Prince Harry announced his engagement to Meghan Markle and this Jupiter trine Neptune occurs just after they married on May 19th.  Before that, Jupiter trine Neptune on  July 17, 2013 - five days before Prince William's and Catherine's first baby was born - Prince George. The next Jupiter trine Neptune aspect will be on August 19, 2018.  So there may be some new announcement by the British royal family around this time - a reason to celebrate!




May 25 2018    Mercury    Tri    Pluto  
 21°Ta02' D    21°Cp02' R


Mercury is about information, letters, texts, all types of communication. Pluto is about deep, dark, hidden places. The places that we are afraid to face in ourselves and others.

Post Secret is a perfect example of Mercury/Pluto energy. A place where people tell their deepest darkest secrets. It can be a liberating experience to share our worries with a trusted friend, a professional, or on the internet. Just get it out in the open, face our fears.

We may eventually learn that no matter what happens, in the end, the feeling of 'the fear' was the worst part.

Under this aspect, we may decide to uncover the truth of the matter. This is wonderful for researching a new subject as under this aspect we will delve deeply and be absorbed for hours finding out all that we can.

However, this can be a bad influence if we turn the magnifying glass on another person's personal life. Beware of becoming suspicious over something trivial. There may be tendency to cross the line and invade other people's personal space.

It is normal to wonder about what a partner is doing when not around you but how far you go in investigating and questioning others about it can be the problem.

Being aware that you may feel more suspicious than necessary around this time and avoid compromising relationships that matter by becoming overly intense or intrusive.

Finding the truth is the real meaning of this aspect. There is more than one way to obtain the information that you desire. Be honest is also important during this time as you may find others may become suspicious of you and double check your information!

Focus your investigative energies on yourself and your work.  You may accomplish much more than usual

At this time, there may be some things kept secret from you, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is a negative thing, it could be better that way.



May 26 2018    Venus    Opp    Saturn  
 08°Cn01' D    08°Cp01' R  

Distance from others. Inhibitions. Utility over beauty. Exacting distinctions. Serious or traditional social matters.

Venus opposing Saturn may cause some feelings of frustrations in relationships and possibly some loneliness.  You may experience problems in expressing your feelings now or find that others do not reciprocate in a way that you hoped.  

Now is the time to put feelings aside for the good of the family, business or other organization.  On a positive side, you can get more work done now as you will be able to put your feelings aside and focus on what matters.  This is a good time to spend with people who are much older or younger than yourself where one is in a teaching position.

Dealing with things realistically when it comes to Venus issues: money, socializing, love, children, personal possessions, beauty and art will work out for the best.  Also, finding the capacity to work hard, doing without, and attend to issues surrounding the elderly or handicapped may also be at the forefront at this time. 

The best way to handle this energy is to be organized, realistic and prepared to work hard for whatever you aspire to in the aforementioned Venusian matters. 

Whether it is a business partner or spouse, outlining the exact details of who is responsible for what will go a long way to improving (and keeping) your partnership solid.  Compromising on practical matters, while not fun, will benefit you both tremendously and help build a firmer foundation for the future.  This aspect may not be the most enjoyable but it is very necessary and should be taken seriously.




May 15 2018    Uranus enters Taurus

Uranus is the planet of sudden changes and ingenious things.  Uranus will be in Taurus from May 2018 through 2026.  So for the next 8 years we may expect some revolutionary breakthroughs and new inventions pertaining to money and possessions.  This also indicates sudden building of things.  There may be some ingenious designs for new machines or other structures over the next 8 years.  There may be some gadgets or inventions which could change our lives and how we bank or hold property.
Things are less stable with Uranus so money markets may fluctuate and there may be a recession as there was the last time Uranus was in Taurus from 1934 - 1942 which was the build up to World War 2.  Hitler was a Taurus and those were times of extreme change in his life as he rose to power.  This doesn't mean all Taurus's become dictators but people with planets in Taurus may expect some big changes in the next 8 years which may be beneficial or not depending on the whole chart.  Uranus can be shocking and unexpected but can also indicate a break through and new path to improvement.  The lesson of Uranus in Taurus is that everything, even our most fixed possessions may be shaken up and turned upside down.  Life is change and the best way to thrive with Uranus in Taurus is to expect some upsets with financial matters in the world.  Banks may suddenly change how they organize things in order to improve security as technology advances.  Embrace change and try new ways of handling finances and other matters pertaining to personal possessions.   Also use new ways or technology to help protect your personal possessions when applicable.  Uranus is a time for trying or buying new things over the next 8 years and with that you may find more security.



May 16 2018    Mars enters Aquarius

Mars begins his trip into Aquarius which is the fixed, air sign ruled traditionally by Saturn and co-ruled by modern planet Uranus.
In the past, Mars entered Aquarius was back in November 2016 when Trump was elected.  This is an excellent time to work on independent, and unusual projects. Also fighting for humanitarian causes.  Groups and clubs may become more active and possible aggressive during this time.  Any violence may bring people together to protest.

This is an auspicious time for revolutionary actions and breaking away from old patterns/ways of doing things to form successful new ways.
Things may move very fast with societal changes over the next month.


May 16 2018    Mars    Sqr    Uranus
    00°Aq02' D    00°Ta02' D  

Rugged individualism. The will to fight for one's freedom from restraint. Technical and mechanical problems and solutions. Inner tension and stress. Impulsive actions. Efforts to meet personal needs and interests. Accidental conditions.

  • Mars is going to be squaring Uranus three times over the next year - this may indicated related or similar events connected by this aspect.  Mars square Uranus now then again on August 1, 2018 and finally on Sept 18th 2018. 

This is an accident prone aspect which can be caused by doing things suddenly or without preparation.  Now is not the time to act out on a whim.  Avoid dangerous activities as thing may not turn out as expected.  Others may act out suddenly and disrupt your plans.  Prepare for this and reroute your activities accordingly without making things worse. 

Problems may center around mechanical objects, cars, and electricity. If you must deal with these thing, be extra careful and don't do anything on the spur of the moment and/or don't try to do the work of a professional.   In other words, if your car breaks down or there are electrical issues in your environment, it is best to pay for an expert in these areas and not trying to do things yourself.  Expect possible problems or disruptions with cars, traffic, machines, and electricity around this time.

There may be a breakthrough now in a situation that may have seemed fixed or impenetrable. You may suddenly be presented an opportunity to do something new which may allow you to break out of an old path or out of a rut.  Things may be more exciting, eventful and possibly stressful at times.  Going with the flow of events and dealing with things as they come is the best way to handle this aspect.


May 18 2018    Mercury    Tri    Saturn   

08°Ta24' D    08°Cp24' R   

Rational and logical thinking. Concentration and focus. Organization. Serious communication. Agreeable solitude.

Mercury in a positive aspect to Saturn is a good time for some critical yet practical decisions and plans.  This is an auspicious time to deal with important paperwork, facts, figures or conversations. 

You may find it easier to bring ideas into focus and create something meaningful, long-lasting and successful.  This is not a cheerful type of aspect so you may not feel like you are doing well even if you are.  This is a time for patience, maturity, and concentration when processing information or communicating with others.  This is a good time to tackle the more difficult projects or discussions.  It is also a positive time to deal with much older or younger people where you may share a teacher/student dynamic. 

This is also an excellent time for organizing paperwork, computer files, and anything that deals with the written or spoken word.  If there is a daunting task that you have been avoiding then now is the time to plow through it. 

Decisions, rules or programs implemented now may become a precedent or become "carved in stone."


May 19 2018    Venus  enters Cancer


A change in matters of love and finances.
Venus enters Cancer today! This may result in people focusing more on home, children, diet, genealogy, real estate, security, cooking, and (fur)babies.



If you have been having relationship or financial issues for the past three weeks, you may notice things start improving now.


As Venus leaves the intellectual, flirty, superficial sign of Gemini where talking about love, relationships and feelings, not becoming very emotional, and/or having multiple love affairs may have been happening. This may all come to an end. Now things may get more emotional and sensitive for some people.



No more being careless or carefree when it comes to romantic partners, money or possessions. Everyone may be feeling more concerned with security.


Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces may be affected the most, and may form stronger bonds with partners and if they don't have a partner, they may feel the need to get one now.  These signs may also benefit financially now.


For everyone in general, Venus in Cancer will mean an emphasis on family matters, emotional issues, and craving security in all areas of life.  Discussing topics that affect one's country to family life may be popular for the next few weeks.



May 19 2018    Venus    Sxt    Uranus
    00°Cn12' D    00°Ta12' D   


Excitability over interactions with others. Unique expression of affections. Sharing excitement. Mental/artistic creativity.

Expect some excitement or surprise events of a positive nature in relationships, with young women, and possibly technical devices or on social media.  Venus rules love, affection, women, money and luxury items and Uranus represents the internet, new technology, rebellion, and shocking events.
This positive combination may work out to benefit women, money and relationships in a new and unusual way.  People may express their love in unusual ways around this time and it is received well.  This is a good time to make money through electronics, inventions or from thinking outside the box.  People want to express their individuality in partnerships now which will improve things for everyone.
In general this is a good time to meet new people whom you would not normally interact with


May 20 2018    Sun   enters Gemini

The Sun enters the mutable air sign of the twins.  There may be some prominent news stories at this time concerning twins or people who are Geminis (like President Trump.)

At this time leaders will be thinking clearly and gathering pertinent facts.  There may be more meetings and discussions now but not necessarily getting things done as energies are more scattered than usual.  Expect meetings to take longer than usual as people enjoy discussing more than may have been on the agenda.

There may be a 'doubling' up of things which cause people to have to multi-task more or do many things at once during this time.  With projects it is best to be flexible and adapting to ever-changing circumstances now. Also, this is an auspicious time to spend with children, communications, neighborhood activities, media and communications of all kinds. 



May 7 2018    Mercury   Sqr    Pluto

    21°Ar14' D    21°Cp14' R   

Information or ideas may be forced on people around this time.  Arguments or disagreements may become intense and lead to power struggles or secretiveness.  You may be feeling more intensly now and seeking to empower yourself with information.  This is the time to face whatever darkness you need to and learn what you need to in order to protect yourself and thrive. 
Now is not the time to attempt to convince others of anything.  Waiting until later to confront someone is best but if you must deal with a situation that challenges another person's beliefs, be careful and polite.


May 7 2018    Venus    Sqr    Neptune
    16°Ge01' D    16°Pi01' D   

This may affect young women and money most strongly. A square between Venus and Neptune signifies fantasies, deception, and/or just plain confusion in love matters, creative endeavors, and financial transactions. Things may not be based in reality and this can cause some confusion and disappointment.

Neptune is the higher octave of Venus and they both rule over love. Venus represents love in relationships, giving and receiving it. So this is a positive time to be compassionate and spiritual.  Giving without expecting something in return.  Neptune is about loving all life, human, animal, and everything else. While enjoying the wonderful romantic and inspiring transit, you may create some amazing fiction stories, photography, art, videos or music. Enjoy the new inspirations, dreams, and expansion of your imagination at this time. Act on your creative ideas.  It is also a wonderful time to do whatever creative project you like : drawing, painting, poetry, etc.


May 8 2018    Sun    Opp    Jupiter

    18°Ta21' D    18°Sc21' R   

Leaders may show more optimism in relationships and wanting to expand their influence.  There is a larger-than-life quality now which may cause some to overextend themselves or their projects.  Avoiding the tendency to overdo or overestimate what can be done with partners and there may be  luck and success. Not becoming carried away with new partnerships but enjoying time together and doing things in moderation.

May 11 2018    Sun    Tri    Pluto

    21°Ta11' D    21°Cp11' R   

Rational and logical thinking. Concentration and focus. Organization. Serious communication. Agreeable solitude.

Power issues, secret agendas and attacks could be on the menus when the Sun hits off with Pluto. Some leaders may get ugly and may find themselves consumed with sneak attacks or power issues. This aspect could make some people feel more suspicious than usual so paranoia may run high.

This may also cause some to become obsessive / compulsive about a certain person, place or thing. This is not a good time for power plays as things may get carried away. However this intense, investigative energy can best be used to delve deeply into research, cleaning/clearing out one's environment, and with studying mysteries or psychology.  It is a positive time to use your powers positively and extensively. What you say or do around this time may reach far and wide so use your influence wisely.


May 12 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Mars

    28°Ar32' D    28°Cp32' D   

Impulsive reactions. Fast pace. Trouble, problems and irritations. Mechanical breakdowns. Arguments and conflicts.

It may be impossible to avoid a problem or dispute of some kind on as Mercury squares Mars. This is a combination which could cause upset in ideas or communications.

Being practical and remembering what is best for the whole group rather than getting caught up in any petty arguments will be the best formula to avoid getting carried away during this transit.

This is not the day to attempt to settle a disagreement, argument or sign contracts.  Even if things are going smoothly now, something may prop up and disturb things. Try to avoid doing anything that could lead to arguments or upsets now.  Wait until a later time to settle any misgivings.

Mercury first squared Mars on Feb 28 2018 and again on April 4 218.  Now is the final square of Mercury/Mars.  Related or similar events may occur around these dates which will be finalized now.

    29°Ar52' D    29°Ar52' D   

Intensity of mind. Experimental attitude. Expression of radical or unusual viewpoints. Technical interest. Inventiveness.

News and information may be scattered and unusual now.  There may be a new technology introduced around this time in communications.  There may be a scientific break-through in new forms of telepathy or how we process information.

Now is an excellent time to introduce a new invention or idea, especially if it is an out-of-the-box endeavor.  Radical and counter-cultural trends may start now.  Terrorists may be emboldened with mass communications or propaganda at this time.

There could be an overflow of electricity, transportation or news now.  There is an independence, originality and genius of thought now which could be translated into success if backed up by hard word. 

The expression, "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration" may apply now under this inspirational influence.


May 13 2018    Mercury enters Taurus


Mercury will be changing signs from Aries and entering the sign of Taurus ruled by Venus.
Things should be calmer as Mercury travels through the fixed earth sign of Taurus.   There may be more information  and news about financial affairs, beauty, art, and creativity. Now is a good time to make financial plans.  Discussion with others should go more smoothly. However if someone is settled on their opinions or decisions now, it may be impossible to sway them.  People will be thinking more practically and be concerned with issues surrounding money, land, real estate, commerce, agriculture, gardening, luxury goods and personal resources

Apr 24 2018    Venus enters Gemini


A time to be curious and flirtatious, and enjoy intellectual relationships with exchanges of ideas. Communicating within a relationship is important now.  May be restless, and sometimes get bored easily. There may also be many money-making schemes presented now.

The planet of love, money, luxury, art, music, pleasures and women is entering the mutable air sign of the twins.  This may cause some doubling up or repeating of the things that fall under Venus's domain (women, love, art, money, etc.)  Some people may find themselves dating more than one person as love is spread around and it is difficult to choose just one.  This also influences what we enjoy doing, which may result in some people pursuing multiple interests for enjoyment, not being able to do just one thing.

Gemini is excellent at muli-tasking so doing multiple art projects or investments simultaneously may be very successful now.

Gemini is a superficial sign that needs constant change and variety.  So this is not the time to put all of your eggs in one basked in matters ruled by Venus.  You may experience a multitude of offers of Venusian gifts all at once - take advantage of it!

Art, poetry and comedy are favored with Venus in Gemini.  Venus in Gemini brings pleasure through intellectual pursuits and conversations.  Gatherings with a wide selection of various sorts will be most pleasing and enjoyable now.  Also, having fun with young people is also favored now.

Pursuing a variety of past-times and keeping things light, fun and airy is the way to go with Venus in Gemini.  Benefits (financial and otherwise) through neighborhood activities, siblings, communications/media, writing, classes, children, traveling locally, fun and frivolity.




Apr 25 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Saturn

    09°Ar05' D    09°Cp05' R  


There may be some difficult decisions to make now as some people may face some sort of disappointment.  Problems with communications and traveling may also occur.  Being patient with any conversations of plans is advisable as it could become strenuous around this time.

Thinking may be serious, methodical and profound but also may tend towards pessimism or depression.  This is not a good time for thinking optimistically about any opportunities but it is a positive time to thoroughly analyze plans to determine any faults.  Being aware that one may err on the side of negative thinking and waiting until a later time to start a new venture is advised. 

This is not an auspicious time to sign legal documents to finalize financial decisions. 



Apr 26 2018    Mars    Cnj    Pluto

The urge to change things, to eliminate and purify. Efforts to unite, to transform, to share power and territory. Intense cleaning and purification. Sexual interests. Convincing, or being convinced of something. High energy output.

Mars conjoining with Pluto indicates more intense, secretive and overpowering actions.  Warlike activity may flare up in unexpected ways and places and drag out for a long time. 
In general this is a time to transform your life in some way.  Purging of personal belonging and/or transforming something.  The focus may be on energy and/or power.  Avoid any power struggles now as they may get more intense and problematic than they are worth.  This is a good time to completely change something in your life for the better.  This aspect will affect young men, machinery, and anything that deals with iron, weapons and mechanics.  On a global level, this may indicate changes in nuclear energy or threats.
This is a positive time to make sweeping changes in the area of athletics and/or to change or intensify exercise routines to transform one's body. As always, be careful not to go too far or become too obsessed with it.


Apr 29 2018    Sun    Tri    Saturn
    09°Ta02' D    09°Cp02' R   

This is an excellent time to start a new work project or regiment.  Discipline is called for now and taking a measured approach to things is highlighted.  Organizing, planing and following the rules will be the way to succeed in whatever you want to achieve.

This is a good time to embark on an diet/exercise program or anything that you want to accomplish that requires consistent discipline.  Something you start building today may lead to solid and enduring results.

This is an auspicious time to do something to further your career or for building something that will benefit you for the rest of your life.  Now is the time to make long-term plans and act on them. 

With Saturn retrograde, you may have to go back and change something later.  However, if you have already considered and action earlier or even made a step towards it in a previous occasion that things should progress without a hitch.

This is also an excellent time to go back and get some work done that you may have avoided earlier.  No matter how boring or dirty the work may be, under this aspect you will be able to get it all done in an efficient manner.  Your employer will notice your efforts and at this time you may receive more responsibility.  If you do, you will be able to handle it well.



April 29 2018  Full Moon
9 deg Scorpio


There will be a Full Moon on Tuesday in Scorpio.  This Full Moon may highlight joint resources, life/death issues, and transformation.

This Full Moon may bring out power struggles, possessiveness and jealousy. However this is an auspicious time for taking personal power and using self discipline to transform oneself.  Scorpio has an iron will and can achieve great things.  This is symbolized by the Phoenix rising from the ashes.  An everyday way to use this type of power is through starting a new health routine, diet or exercise program.  Something that may physically transform you.  It is a good time to fully immerse yourself in any topic. 

This is also a good time to delve into mysteries, true crime (unresolved cases) or do research on a hidden topic. 





Apr 17 2018    Venus    Opp    Jupiter   

20°Ta58' D    20°Sc58' R   

Excessive sociability. The desire to "party". Dramatic, extravagant gestures. Overindulgence. Overvaluing something.

Optimism may turn to over-indulging.  Enjoying good times with family and friends is most enjoyable.  Generosity and pleasures are multiplied more than usual.  An excellent time for family gatherings (no matter who you call 'family' as friends, co-workers, pets, etc. can be considered family too.) 

Jupiter expands the social circle with an aspect to Venus with a desire to shower everyone with some expression of good will.
  This is also a time when romance blooms.  There may be more than one romantic partner appearing at this time.
While it is a pleasurable time for social events, this is not the best time to do shopping as you may purchase more than you need or spend more than expected.  Avoid impulse purchases or getting carried away with any spending or activities. 




Apr 17 2018    Venus    Tri    Pluto   
21°Ta16' D    21°Cp16' D   

The merging of one's survival needs with those of a group. Sharing and trusting. Intense interactions with others.

Intensity over finances and with women/children.  There may be some covert activities which take over a situation with powerful influence.  Women may deal with power issues or money issues which may become prominent in the news.  Venus also signifies what we create, which can run from a piece of artwork to children.

Trines are unstoppable flows of energy.  Issues surrounding budgets could result in political problems.  More people may push their power to avoid paying or to receive more funds now. 

Relationships may also be affected by this aspect. Feelings may be more intense with a partner or other loved one which can be for good or ill.  The power to completely transform a relationship or finances is available now.

While this aspect of Venus and Pluto can be overwhelming, it can be used positively.  By channeling the energy towards working with others to improve your power physically, financially or socially.  Embarking upon a new project with gusto could lead to great success.

It may take a change of perspective to realize that a perceived problem could be a source of power.  Making that shift may allow you to obtain the best results of this aspect.

Apr 17 2018    Saturn Station Retrograde    

 09°Cp08' R        

Traditional most outer planet Saturn stations retrograde, which it does once a year for 140 days.  This is a time for reorganizing, rescheduling, and making adjustments to plans.

For example, if you are a freelancer and had some upcoming projects planned out,  some of them may either change or fall through completely.  Try not to let the change of plans throw you as it is an excellent time to polish off your work for the next go-round. It will also allow you to focus your time on other important projects.

If you have submitted a proposal and had it rejected, again this is the time to go over it and make improvements to submit again later (or abandon it if it is not really worth the effort.)

That is what Saturn gets to the bottom of: "Is it worth it?  Is it really worth it?"  Because if it isn't really important, Saturn will eliminate it from the schedule.

Saturn helps you to define what you want out of life and pushes you to get working on it.  Saturn's job is to eliminate distractions and any waste of time.  This may seem harsh at times but it is meant to help you obtain your true goals in life.


This is the time to streamline your life in order to obtain the business success that you deserve! Are you wasting time (which is ruled by Saturn)? Perhaps you may decide now to eliminate some activities that are not helping you to obtain your life goals.   Eliminating bad habits and time wasters will be a priority now;  also, cleaning house, literally and figuratively.  Going through that *friends* list and deleting people you don't know for example.  Organizing your life and eliminating excess may be on the agenda now with Saturn retrograde.


Saturn rules structures, so any loose ends or holes in any kind of plan will be a source of problems while Saturn is retrograde.   Take this time to go over any projects, plans, schedules  again and again until they are as perfect as possible. 

If you are going back to an old project while Saturn is retrograde,now may be the time to re-launch it and watch it become success this time.  This is also an excellent time to go back and rectify anything that has been broken for a while. 

Saturn is in the sign of career and authority.  Some people may decide to return to a former job or avocation.  You may have success in redoing or restarting ventures which affects your public status or career.


Apr 18 2018    Sun    Cnj    Uranus   
28°Ar29' D    28°Ar29' D   

A keen interest in ideas which are progressive or innovative. Scientific mind. Inventive. A questioning mind. Mental excitement. Taking action which changes things and brings improvement. Joining with others for a specific cause or purpose.

Expect some type of surprise today as the Sun hits off with Uranus, the planet of technology, surprise, and at times sheer chaos.

This is an excellent time for unique discoveries, inventing something, or thinking 'outside the box.'  This also means that something unusual may occur to disrupt the normal flow of things.  Electronic devices, computers, and other communications tools may act up or be disrupted somehow.

On an individual level, some may feel like things are too hectic or discombobulated. Take a break and meditate if you feel stressed by all of the activity going on around you.


Apr 19 2018    Sun   enters Taurus

The sun moves into the fixed, earth sign of Taurus today. This signifies a shift in leaders from a more entrepreneurial, fast acting, fighting position to one of mastering material concerns.

At this time people will want to calm things down, get more settled, and be more concerned with security and finances. 

For the the next month there will be more of an emphasis on the arts, luxury, beauty items, money and possessions.  Leaders may become inflexible with their plans and things may slow down into a standstill for a while.  There will be a much more powerful focus on securing borders, land and material well-being.  Also keeping calm will be on the top of the agenda.

This is a good time to take an inventory of what your resources are and plan accordingly.  Making new investments or beginning creative ventures may lead to more comfort and success.

Apr 22 2018    Pluto Station Retrograde
      
21°Cp17' R        

Pluto will station retrograde on April 22nd and remain it's apparent backwards motion until September 30 2018.  When a planet is retrograde it's energies are intensified, especially around the times when it stations.

This is going to be a time of some upheaval and disturbed energies.  When planets are retrograde, they do not perform in their usual ways and may show some bizarre events which may be described by the signs that they are in.

This portends to major climate changes, earthquakes, tornadoes, etc. at this time.
The powers that be will be at a standstill today and about to rethink, review or reorganize now.  Career opportunities may be delayed for some people and/or a general  slow down of power.  At this time governments may go back and implement policies that concern past events or issues.

Earthquakes and other natural disturbances or events which affect the world may occur around this time and in the following months.  Pay attention to anything that begins or develops around this time as it might grow out of control or make a profound change when Pluto stations direct at the end of September.
