Astrology Readings


Nov 15 2018    Mar    Sxt    Uranus  
29°Aq40' D    29°Ar40' R

Individual actions and rebellions.  Revolutionary activities.  Events and actions accelerating to high speeds.  New mechanical inventions.  The desire to make things happen quickly.  Dynamic leadership. Expressing individuality through work and performance.

There may be some last minute actions or decisions which may lead to success.  This is the time to be open to taking new and sudden opportunities.  There is a method to the sudden rush of activity so trust your instincts and do what feels right. 

You or others may be asserting your individuality in some way this week.  Protests and group calls to action for a rebellious or unusual cause will be successful.  This is an excellent time for sports, competition and starting a new exercise routine.


Nov 15 2018    Mars enters Pisces
You have a strong drive for a spiritual path. You have strong subconscious emotions, and are highly intuitive. You may resort to victim-like behaviour when faced with a threatening situation or person.

Mars in Pisces can indicate a more peaceful approach to problem-solving but it can also indicate attacks in a secretive manner or involving water/gases.   Mars is in honor of triplicity in this water sign so he is not weak.   Mars just tends to dissipate its energies.  This may result people becoming a bit lazier now or spreading their energies around on different projects.

This is a good time for water sports or any activities involving water, the ocean, chemicals,  creative imagination and/or spiritual pursuits.  This is also a good time to work in seclusion or behind-the-scenes.  There may be progress in spiritual pursuits. 



Nov 16 2018    Venus Stations Direct
25°Li14'

Venus stations Direct on Saturday after having been retrograde since October 5th.  This will indicate a turn around or change in relationships, money matters, children, creativity and other areas ruled by Venus.

Relationships may begin or end around this time.  You may return to a previous relationship or end a new one.  Money may finally be received that had been on hold since early March.  This may also portend to any diplomatic or trading issues. 

There may be a prominent news story that involves women, children, finances, art, diplomatic missions, etc. - anything ruled by Venus.
    

Nov 16 2018    Mercury Stations Retrograde
 13°Sg29' R    

This is an excellent time for going back over old projects, novels, applications, forms, or other writing that you may have begun earlier, only to abandon the project before it was finished.  Also, any previously broken items dealing with communications may be fixed now!

Getting back in touch with people whom you haven't spoken to in a while may turn into a very positive experience.  Reviewing, restarting, redoing or renovating is very successful while Mercury is retrograde.

This is not the best time to sign documents or other legal affairs. Watch out for communication mishaps, emails going to the wrong people, typos, messages not being received, computers, cell phones and fax machines breaking, etc.

Also, it is best to wait until Mercury is direct before purchasing any new communication equipment (cell phone, computers, etc.)

Commuting to work or around the neighborhood may prove to be more problematic than usual.  Try not to let any travel or communication delays/problems upset you.


Nov 19 2018    Mars    Sqr    Jupiter
  02°Pi33' D    02°Sg33' D

There may be a tendency to be overly optimistic or to stretch oneself too far under this transit.  Doing things in a structured way and in moderation will give the best results.

There may be an overreaction or overspending at this time, particularly in things that pertain to young men, mechanics, fighting or competition/sports. 

Avoid pushing too hard or trying to accomplish too much as there is an expansion of fighting or physical activity.  Some may find some moral ground to commit acts of violence or aggression.  This is not an auspicious time for settling disagreements or disputes.

Nov 6 2018    Sun    Tri    Neptune
   13°Sc47' D    13°Pi47' 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. 
 
 
Nov 6 2018    Uranus re-enters Aries
Uranus was traveling through the sign of Aries from 2010 through last May 2018 when it entered the solid sign of Taurus.  This was right around the time of Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle. 
Uranus in Aries brought new and exciting (sometimes violent) events surrounding revolutions and self-expression.  In Taurus Uranus is just as unexpected but in the areas of finance and security.  However, Uranus is going back into Aries now for a little while for some more surprise eruptions and rebellions.  Uranus is retrograde so it is going to be affecting or reigniting old battles that had quieted down when Uranus entered Taurus.  From now through March 5, 2019 Uranus will bring some sudden changes, unexpected turn of events and violent revolutionary events.
 
Nov 8 2018    Jupiter enters Sagittarius
Jupiter enters the sign of Sagittarius for the next 12 months.  This indicates luck and expansion in the Aries of spirituality, higher education, foreign travel/organizations, legal affairs and publishing (among other things.)  Jupiter is in dignity in Sagittarius so its influence will be powerful and generally positive. 
 
The last time Jupiter was in Sagittarius was from November 2006 - December 2007.  You may experience similar or related events in life over the next 12 months.  In the last Jupiter in Sagittarius transit we had a couple of big legal cases that took place in foreign countries  - Madeline McCann and the murder of Meredith Kercher.  These cases remain unresolved.  This year with Jupiter's return to Sagittarius may see some closure or possibly reopening of these cases in some way as well as any other legal or foreign issues from the last time Jupiter was in Sagittarius.
 
Nov 9 2018    Venus    Tri    Mars
   26°Li11' R    26°Aq11' D
Healthy passions. Physical attraction. Strenuous enjoyment. Joint enthusiasm. Romance. Creating art or decoration.

Venus trines Mars which is positive for relationships, creativity, finances and diplomacy.   This is a good time to talk to others and settle any disputes or at least start to.  Working with others smoothly while being productive at the same time is possible now.  Beginning a new creative venture, especially ones that deal with writing, speeches, documents, discussions, debates, etc are also auspicious now. 
This is an auspicious time for relationships of all kinds.  At this time there may be a reconciliation or settlement that appeases both parties from earlier disagreements or disputes.
This is an auspicious time for beginning or working on finances, romantic and any creative endeavor.
 
Nov 11 2018    Sun    Sxt    Pluto
   19°Sc10' D    19°Cp10' D


Issues of power. Personal power/magnetism. Determination. Decision. Revealing the inner self. Body communication. Biological forces. Sharing and trust. Financial power used without resistance.

At this time you may have the opportunity to use your personal power to get things done.  Leaders will exert more influence now and draw others to their causes.
This is an excellent time to make any changes in your life that may transform the way you get things done.  Cleaning out your environment, rolling out a new venture or working on improving your psychology with self-help books/seminars may have a dramatic influence on your future.
Expressing your authority in indirect ways rather than forcing others to do something will give you greater respect.



Oct 29 2018    Mercury    Cnj    Jupiter
   27°Sc49' D    27°Sc49' D

Sound judgment. Taking in the full picture. Speculative thought. Positive thinking. Interest in learning. Teaching. Bountiful optimism now as people think big. This is an excellent time to learning something new or expanding one's experiences. An auspicious time to reach out and interact with new people from different cultures. This aspect also favors teaching something new. A positive time to sign new contracts or initiate a writing/publishing project.

It may be easier to create or communicate to a larger audience as knowing what or how to say something that will be well-received by many is favored. Foreign, religious or spiritual communications are successful as well as traveling.

This is a time when you can think big and take in all of the necessary details simultaneously.


Oct 31 2018    Mercury enters Sagittarius

You seek knowledge to expand your world view. You are a born philosopher, enjoying any information which helps you see the big picture. For instance you may enjoy a religious debate. You place importance on freedom of speech and thought.

The planet of communication and processing information has left the intense and suspicious sign of Scorpio and is now bursting with optimism in Sagittarius!  Now is the time to learn new things, travel, meet new people, or just expand your thinking and information in some way. 

This is not to say that it is all wonderful as Mercury is in detriment here so try to avoid doing too much when spreading the word out or taking on more classes than you can realistically accomplish.  Mercury in Sagittarius can be very wise and appreciate the 'big picture' however there is also a danger of becoming overly exuberant with a new thought or belief and becoming overbearing or pompous with opinions. Debates over beliefs, expert or educated opinions may get carried away now.


Oct 31 2018    Venus    Opp    Uranus   
00°Sc15' R    00°Ta15' R

Venus opposed Uranus three times on her retrograde journey.  The first Venus/Uranus opposition was on Sept 12th, then Oct 31st and the final one on Nov 30th.  This means something similar or related pertaining to Venus (women, finances, luxury items) and Uranus (shocking, sudden, unexpected, ingenious) may occur around these dates.

Things may get intense and exciting in relationships and finances.  Some surprising or even shocking developments may occur by or to women and children.  Supporters of women's causes may protest at this time. 

This could be disruptive and unconventional time in social events and relationships. There may be rebellious activities occurring now. This could also signify an break in diplomatic or other relations.  Surprises in stock market.  Bizarre relationships may form now or abruptly change/separate.

Oct 31 2018    Venus re-enters Libra

Venus leaves the sign of it's fall to enter her dignity of Libra for the second time this year (the last time she entered Libra was on Aug 6th.)  People with planets in Libra will be feeling the love, generosity and good luck bestowed by this lesser benefic.

Whether you have planets/points in Libra or not, you may notice that things seem to be going better than before, especially in anything ruled by Venus: women, money, creativity, art, music, romance, relationships, negotiations, and diplomacy.

People want to enjoy pleasantries and indulge from now until Venus leave Libra.  They also want fairness and justice.    This is a wonderful time for enjoying time with friends, building new relationships (business or personal) and earning money. 


Monday, Oct 22 2018    Mercury    Sxt    Pluto   
18°Sc52' D    18°Cp52' D

People will thinking more seriously, deeply and intensely about things at this time. This is an excellent time for doing any investigation or research of any kind. Life/death/security issues are also on people's minds.

If you have been meaning to write a letter about something important (good or bad) writing it now and sending it out will ensure that is has the most powerful impact possible.

Mediums and psychics may be getting more or better messages than usual. This is an excellent time for communicating with the other side, even if you don't normally get messages from the other side, you may get a sign or some sort of message today.

This is also a good time to work on joint finances, bills, taxes, estates as well as any secretive matters. You may receive the alimony, insurance or other money you were owed.

This is also a good time for mystery writing, intense artwork, living wills, psychology, occult, diet, sex, health matters, cleanses, power, powerful speaking/writing of all kinds.

This is a good day to destroy any junk mail or paperwork that needs to be shred.  Purging information out of your life that is no longer relevant is a positive way to use this energy.

What you say and write today may affect a large number of people and potentially have a profound impact on your life. As with all transiting aspects, it depends on each individual's chart how strongly a particular planetary aspect will affect them.


Tuesday, Oct 23 2018    Sun    enters Scorpio

Happy Birthday Scorpios! (whether it's today or coming up soon) 
No matter what you sun sign is, at this time people may be feeling more passionate and intense now. There may also be more secretiveness and drama unfolding too.

The Sun enters so expect leaders to become more intense, possibly vindictive, dramatic and secretive.  Scorpio is a powerful and honest sign but it can be secretive and obsessed in its desire power.  There is nothing wrong with wanting to achieve more power as long as it is not abused or for selfish reasons.  Therein lies the spectrum of where a Scorpio may rise to the highest heights of self-sacrifice for others or the lowest lows of manipulation and jealousies.

Sun in Scorpio portends to a complete transformation in leadership organization.  On a personal level, now may be the time that people will want to make huge changes in their lives. Scorpio is fearless so this is a positive time to face something  that you may have been avoiding.

There is immense will-power that can be expressed now which can lead to amazing accomplishments.  Dealings with joint finances, insurance, paranormal, and life/death issues may be prominent now.



Oct 23 2018    Sun    Opp    Uranus
00°Sc33' D    00°Ta33' R

Exposure to, or confrontation with, ideas and information which challenge the status quo. Surprises and reversals. Misapplication of technical data. A nervous restlessness. Efforts to understand change and unconventional behavior.

Expect the unexpected from leaders and in the news. Shocking new stories may be released now. There may be disruptions in governments and organizations. Well laid plans may be completely changed at this time as things do not run their normal course. Now is the time to be flexible in daily events and as prepared as possible for unexpected mishaps.

Prominent people may say shocking things or get into public debates at this time. Use this time to think outside the box. You may have some breakthroughs in solving an old problem. If you have a flash of an idea about something, try it out and it may work perfectly.


Wednesday Oct 24 2018  Full Moon 
1 Taurus

Today's Full Moon is auspicious not only because the Moon is exalted in Taurus but the Lights form a helpful aspect from a powerful Saturn in dignity.  This Full Moon may show some final result or illuminate the next step in plans that began with the powerful New Moon last Oct 8th at 15 Libra.

This Full Moon in Taurus yields substantial and lasting results.  An increase in finances may be the result with hard work and organization.  This is a time for discipline and hard work.  Organizing, strategizing and making plans are called for now.

This is a good time to enjoy the finer things in a traditional or organized/disciplined way. This may manifest as a business trip in extravagant location or organizing your personal finances.  Wherever the Full Moon falls in your chart, you may find yourself the recipient of some gift or abundance. (Call me if you don't know where that is.)

Today is a good day to relax and recharge your batteries in preparation for the next step in your financial matters or business ventures. 


Oct 24 2018    Venus    Sxt    Saturn   
04°Sc21' R    04°Cp21' D
Venus will sextile Saturn three times in the next few months.  Sept 12th,  Oct 24, and Dec 16, 2018.  This means that something similar or related, of a Venus/Saturn nature, may occur around these dates.

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

With Venus forming a positive aspect to Saturn, this may result in obtaining some stability in love and financial matters.  Initiating a creative project will have solid results.  Creating permanence in romantic and creative areas of life are favored today.

Benefits through older people, farms, coal, public buildings, state officials,or antiques.  This is a good day to have an heirloom appraised.  This is also a positive time to organize or attend to money matters.   Doing something constructive which lays down the rules with children in a loving way, could be very successful now and last long-term. 

Beautifying an old place or object may have some outstanding results.  Painting, sculpture, and interior decorating are also favored under this aspect.  Donations to charities will help more than usual today.



Friday  Oct 26 2018    Sun    Cnj    Venus  
03°Sc06' D    03°Sc06' R

Venus will also be changing from her Evening Star to her Morning Star phase beginning on October 26th.   This indicates that Venus's influence will become more warlike than peaceful after October 26th.

Morning Star Venus rises before the Sun each morning while Evening Star Venus sets after the Sun.  Astrologer Ronnie Dreyer writes, "It was said that the Morning Star's [Venus] appearance in the eastern sky roused the soldiers to war, while the Evening Star's arrival on the western sky induced passionate lovemaking and followed by restful sleep.  As a result, the aggressive Morning Star and the soothing Evening Star exemplified the two faces of Inanna [Venus] - 1) the wrathful Goddess of War and 2) the tranquil Love and Fertility deity."

In natal chart analysis, when Venus is in her Morning/Evening Star positions,  Dreyer writes that Morning Star Venus, " . . . it is more likely to convey her jealous, possessive aspects as well as proud, victorious qualities . . .The Evening Star, on the other hand, signifies the more passive, peaceful and loving Venus noted for her sensuality, beauty and facility for co-operation and harmony."

Venus will remain in her Morning Star position from October 26, 2018 thru August 14, 2019.  In general events and activities related to Venusian topics will be more active and eventful during that time.  New relationships may start and be more passionate or full of activity.




Saturday, Oct 27 2018    Sun    Sxt    Saturn   
04°Sc37' D    04°Cp37' D

On a personal level, the Sun represents our ego, confidence and ability to get things done as we would like them. With the Sun in Scorpio this may be about balancing power, joint resources and transformational issues.

Saturn is all about discipline, doing what is right and authority. So if we combine these two planets even briefly it opens the doors to positive advancement! How do we take advantage of this?

Beginning right now, start making your plans for what you want to accomplish. With astrology it is all about births and beginnings. So start looking for that career you want by applying to an ad, making some phone calls, or signing up for that class. It can be as simple as making a list of what you need to do. If you have always wanted to be self-employed with an internet business, start writing the business plan, purchasing the web domain name, etc. You don't have to do it all at once - just start it!

A business, enterprise, diet, trip, project . . . anything that you want to accomplish that takes a bit of planning, hard work and will result in you obtaining some authority, a certificate, degree, or award of some kind will have a very positive start with this Sun/Saturn aspect.

Don't' expect results right away as Saturn takes his time but watch how things unfurl and your success realized. Another way that this aspect between Sun/Saturn may manifest is that if you have been working hard on a project, business, etc you may reach a milestone, reward or some significant recognition tomorrow. This recognition (Sun) may show itself with an increased workload (Saturn). So if you find yourself buried with responsibilities around this time, be thankful, as it is a clear sign that you are on the right path and doing well!

So good luck on achieving your goals (Sun) and get to work (Saturn)!

Venus, the planet of love, affection, pleasure, romance, money, and possessions will stop and start to move backwards (from the earth's perspective) on October 5th thru November 16th 2018. 

People with planets between (and aspecting) the degrees of 25 Libra and 10 Scorpio will be most affected by this retrograde Venus period.   Venus will make three aspects as it travels back and forth which can cause related or similar events to occur.  These include events associated with (but not limited to) relationships, finances, social events, the arts and young women.

Venus may have some dramatically different influences during this retrograde since Venus begins her station in the sign of her detriment - Scorpio.  This can lead to intense, obsessive or jealous incidents.  Then Venus re-enters her own domicile of Libra where she shines with fairness, loveliness, beauty, art, and diplomacy. 

This means there will be a mixed bag of tricks for people during the 'trick-or-treat' season this year.  Expect some ups and downs with Venusian matters from October 10th thru Nov 16th. 

Besides changing sign from her sign of detriment (Scorpio) to dignity (Libra) Venus will also be changing from her Evening Star to her Morning Star phase beginning on October 26th.   This indicates that Venus's influence will become more warlike than peaceful after October 26th.

Morning Star Venus rises before the Sun each morning while Evening Star Venus sets after the Sun.  Astrologer Ronnie Dreyer writes, "It was said that the Morning Star's [Venus] appearance in the eastern sky roused the soldiers to war, while the Evening Star's arrival on the western sky induced passionate lovemaking and followed by restful sleep.  As a result, the aggressive Morning Star and the soothing Evening Star exemplified the two faces of Inanna [Venus] - 1) the wrathful Goddess of War and 2) the tranquil Love and Fertility deity."

In natal chart analysis, when Venus is in her Morning/Evening Star positions,  Dreyer writes that Morning Star Venus, " . . . it is more likely to convey her jealous, possessive aspects as well as proud, victorious qualities . . .The Evening Star, on the other hand, signifies the more passive, peaceful and loving Venus noted for her sensuality, beauty and facility for co-operation and harmony."

Venus will remain in her Morning Star position from October 26, 2018 thru August 14, 2019.  In general events and activities related to Venusian topics will be more active and eventful during that time.  New relationships may start and be more passionate or full of activity.

When Venus stationed retrograde on October 5th at 10 degrees Scorpio astrologers knew that trouble was around the corner.  Issues would and will continue to arise in areas of relationships, romance, birth, art, creativity, finance, women, etc anything in the domain of Venus.  It is not an auspicious time for starting new ventures related to marriage, pregnancy etc.  The Royal family have illustrated what happens when you ignore astrology and get married or announce a new pregnancy while Venus is retrograde and in detriment in Scorpio.

princess eugenie wedding dress

On Oct 12th  we had the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie.  This was a wedding that had to be rescheduled because of Prince Harry's wedding five months earlier.  So a Venus retrograde signified that.  However, problems began to boil over right from the start.  Prince Andrew wanted a lavish ceremony for his daughter whom he felt had been treated unfairly.  This went against advice to keep it low key so that the public wouldn't complain about the price tag.  Allegedly Prince Andrew argued with his brother Prince Charles about this.
a person standing next to a cat: While the rest of the royal family attended Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall couldn't make it to the nuptials. According to the palace, the Duchess of Cornwall had a previous royal engagement arranged that she did not want to break, which saw her visit a school in Scotland instead.
Then it was revealed that Prince Charle's wife Camilla would not be attending.  This was a first for the second wife and an incredible snub.  Camilla ensconced herself in Scotland -  leaving hubbie Charles all alone to attend the nuptials.  This pointed to serious problems between Camilla and Charles and/or with Camilla and Sara Ferguson who was attending.  (Sarah was best friends with the late Princess Diana who despised Camilla.)
Meghan Markle's Pregnancy News Was Announced on Sarah Ferguson's Birthday
Another intense Venus retrograde in Scorpio story was Fergie standing by her man Prince Andrew for the first time in years.  Reportedly he had avoided her all of this time and now was the first time in many years that they stood together at a royal function.  Rumors of them getting married again (Venus retrograde) were flying.

Fergie was also dreading seeing her old father-in-law Prince Phillip who is understood to despise her.  Fergie tweeted about her relief at not seeing him while she was at the palace helping to arrange everything.


Then all of Prince Harry's ex-girlfriends were in attendance, stealing the show before the ceremony. Attractive pictures of them glowing spread over the media.

But the biggest Venus retrograde in Scorpio blunder was the baby announcement of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.  Apparently they chose to do this at Princess Eugenie's wedding which ticked off some royals as it took attention away from the bride and groom.
To make matters worse, after this, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the public baby announcement in Australia on Oct 15th which is Sarah Ferguson's birthday and also the International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  So this was seen as insensitive on two counts.

That's all I can think of for now but there may be more as Venus is remaining retrograde until Nov 16th when she stations direct at 25 Libra.   Perhaps everything will be smoothed out by then.





Oct 15 2018    Mercury    Cnj    Venus   
08°Sc50' D    08°Sc50' R

This is a wonderful time to write about the arts or women and it is also a positive time to enjoy music and other creative outlets.  Mercury is the planet of all forms of communication while Venus is the goddess of love, art, and beauty. So writing or communicating about relationships, hobbies, theater, museums, shows, movie stars, make-up, etc. anything veusian may be very successful today.


Oct 19 2018    Mercury    Tri    Neptune   
14°Sc03' D    14°Pi03' 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. 


Oct 19 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Mars   
14°Sc30' D    14°Aq30' 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.



In this article I will be covering the astrological significance of Jupiter in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces from November 2018 through December 2019.   What to expect, how to make the best of it while avoiding the pitfalls. 

Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion enters the sign of Sagittarius on November 8, 2018.  What does this mean for you?  One way to anticipate how Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius will affect you is to consider that Jupiter is in a sign once every 12 years.   The last time Jupiter was in the mutable, fire sign of Sagittarius was from November 23, 2006 thru December 18, 2007.   What was happening in your life back in 2007?  2019 won’t be exactly the same as 2007, of course, as the other planets are all in different places, but there will be some similarities. 

Jupiter is wonderfully placed in its own sign of Sagittarius.  Jupiter signifies law, foreign travel/affairs, publishing, internet, higher education, religion, philosophy and public speaking (to name a few major themes.)  Something pertaining to one or more of these areas may become prominent in your life from November 2018 thru December 2019.  For example, you may decide to return to school, embark on a trip to a foreign place, learn a new language or go on a pilgrimage.  With Jupiter in Sagittarius, these areas can result in some sublime experiences.  You may want to reach out more to people from different backgrounds and feel more optimistic.   This is because Jupiter expands, protects, and offers new fortunate opportunities which can at times be awe-inspiring.  This is why Jupiter is known as the ‘greater benefic.’

However, unlike when Jupiter was last in Sagittarius, there is another important planet in the mix – Neptune in Pisces. Back in 2007 Jupiter formed an easy sextile to Neptune but in 2019, Jupiter will form a dynamic aspect (90 degree) with Neptune three times.  This influence will affect everyone either directly or indirectly.  Sakoin and Acker describes Jupiter square Neptune in their book Predictive Astrology as: “ . . . emotional idealism, unrealistic expectations, and misplaced sympathy.”  Under the influence of Jupiter square Neptune, you may get carried away with some ideas which may lead to disappointment.  There is also a chance that you might feel a bit down in the dumps and feel like you want to escape or indulge in unhealthy pastimes.  A positive way to utilize the energy of this Jupiter/Neptune aspect is by enjoying the opportunities of Jupiter but being more careful.    Before you sign on the dotted line for that new class, cruise trip or self-improvement course - do a bit more research than you might usually do.  This extra due diligence may help you avoid some costly mistakes. 

 The dates that Jupiter perfects a square to Neptune will be on: January 13th, June 16th, and September 21st.  Mark down these dates and try to avoid committing to any important legal, travel, or educational commitments on these dates.  At the same time, these dates are auspicious times for creating new videos, illustrations, meditation, music, art, spiritual practices and/or indulging in a new fantasy game or novel.

Neptune in Pisces makes things unclear, foggy, mystical, glamorous and sometimes deceptive.  This is wonderful for fiction writing, videos or games but in the real world, it can lead to disappointment.  One way to describe Neptune’s influence in everyday life is to consider social media.    With good lighting, camera angles, make-up, almost anyone can appear to be a glamorous movie star.  

However, the reality is what the person is off the camera.  Neptune may help make someone (or something) appear dramatically different and deceive you into thinking they are glamorous but if you meet in person, you will no doubt be disappointed.  That is the nature of Jupiter square Neptune – this contrast between fantasy and reality will be amplified in 2019.  This may result in some huge scandals.

 This isn’t always a negative influence – why not have some fun and look like a model on a Youtube video or Instagram photo?  There is nothing wrong with it as long as you keep in mind that it’s not reality.   This will be the lesson of 2019. 

It’s summed up with the old fashioned expression “If it seems too good to be true it probably is.”  This extends to subjects and events beyond social media.  There may be some type of product, ideology, or publication that be spread far and wide (Jupiter) but it may all turn out to be a disappointing deception - or lie (square Neptune.)   

Another example of Jupiter/Neptune manifesting is in legal cases (Jupiter.)  Jupiter rules over the 9th house of law and in 2019 there will be some prominent trials that will capture the imagination (Neptune.)  One is the NXIVM cult case.  NXIVM portrayed itself as an ‘Executive Success Program’ (Jupiter) but instead of improving their business skills it was brainwashing participants with the help of Hollywood stars (Neptune) while emptying people’s bank accounts.  Catherine Oxenberg just published a book (Jupiter) about it after she rescued her daughter from the clutches of this deceptive (Neptune) cult.

2019 will be an interesting year with Jupiter square Neptune.  It may be a year of profound creativity, experiences and spiritual awakenings.  Enjoy the enthusiasm while avoiding people, places or things that seem too good to be true is the best way to navigate the next 12 months.

Oct 9 2018    Mercury enters Scorpio

Mercury in Scorpio makes conversations and news stories more intense, secretive, and blunt. Emotions may run deep on any subject covered. Topics the include mysteries true crime, criminal organizations, corruption, joint finances, mediums, life/death issues, emergencies, and other intense (or transformative) events may dominate the news and be the topic of conversation.

Conspiracy theories may run rampant now as power issues and powerful people make the news.  People may be wondering, in general, what is being hidden from them or what is not being said?  Mercury in Scorpio is excellent for psychology and therapy.  Body language, lip reading, forensic linguistics or other techniques that allow an investigator to extract hidden meanings may go well now. This is a good time to research, study, investigate something. You may discover a hidden treasure.

Leaders may be too forceful or manipulative in their approach that could lead to abusive.  Avoid getting drawn into power plays around this time that could become worse.  The good of the many supersede the benefits of one person or group.  Now is not a good time to try to persuade or influence someone to do something or it could turn against you.  A possibility of one using excessive force or underhanded means to an end are possible.

This is a powerful time to confront a problem and make a breakthrough in something that has been overwhelming or intimidating you.  Now you have the power to take charge and confront your fears - the trick is to avoid pushing too hard.

Oct 2 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Pluto
   18°Li45' D    18°Cp45' D

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 intensely 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 a later time to confront someone is best but if you must deal with a situation that challenges another person's beliefs.


Oct 5 2018    Venus Stations  Retrograde
      10°Sc50' R     


Venus, the planet of love, affection, pleasure, romance, money, and possessions will stop and start to move backwards (from the earth's perspective) on October 5th thru November 16th 2018. 

People with planets between (and aspecting) the degrees of 25 Libra and 10 Scorpio will be most affected by this retrograde Venus period.   Venus will make three aspects as it travels back and forth which can cause related or similar events to occur.  These include events associated with (but not limited to) relationships, finances, social events, the arts and young women.

Venus may have some dramatically different influences during this retrograde since Venus begins her station in the sign of her detriment - Scorpio.  This can lead to intense, obsessive or jealous incidents.  Then Venus re-enters her own domicile of Libra where she shines with fairness, loveliness, beauty, art, and diplomacy. 

This means there will be a mixed bag of tricks for people during the 'trick-or-treat' season this year.  Expect some ups and downs with Venusian matters from October 10th thru Nov 16th. 

Besides changing sign from her sign of detriment (Scorpio) to dignity (Libra) Venus will also be changing from her Evening Star to her Morning Star phase beginning on October 26th.   This indicates that Venus's influence will become more warlike than peaceful after October 26th.

Morning Star Venus rises before the Sun each morning while Evening Star Venus sets after the Sun.  Astrologer Ronnie Dreyer writes, "It was said that the Morning Star's [Venus] appearance in the eastern sky roused the soldiers to war, while the Evening Star's arrival on the western sky induced passionate lovemaking and followed by restful sleep.  As a result, the aggressive Morning Star and the soothing Evening Star exemplified the two faces of Inanna [Venus] - 1) the wrathful Goddess of War and 2) the tranquil Love and Fertility deity."

In natal chart analysis, when Venus is in her Morning/Evening Star positions,  Dreyer writes that Morning Star Venus, " . . . it is more likely to convey her jealous, possessive aspects as well as proud, victorious qualities . . .The Evening Star, on the other hand, signifies the more passive, peaceful and loving Venus noted for her sensuality, beauty and facility for co-operation and harmony."

Venus will remain in her Morning Star position from October 26, 2018 thru August 14, 2019.  In general events and activities related to Venusian topics will be more active and eventful during that time.  New relationships may start and be more passionate or full of activity.

Venus is about to station retrograde on October 5th 2018 and will remain that way until November 16th 2018.  Venus represents relationships, arts, and financial matters, (among other things).  This article is about one story of how Venus retrograde kept a marriage together.

Venus retrograde played a part in the relationship between Khloe Kardashian and NBA star Lamar Odom. 


Khloe Kardashian married Lamar Odom on September 27, 2009 after meeting only a month earlier.  They fell in love fast!  They managed to stay together through some difficult times until, six years later, Khloe filed for a divorce from Lamar in July 2015.  They both signed the divorce papers near the same time Venus stationed retrograde on July 25th 2015.

Venus rules over marriage and when it stations retrograde there will be problems, delays and/or changes in the situation.  Things don't go according to plan when a planet retrogrades.  Marriages or divorces - beginning during a Venus retrograde (especially right around the exact date that Venus stations retrograde) will cause some problems in the plans.

This is exactly what happened with Khloe and Odom's divorce.  They both signed the legal documents in July 2015 but for *some* reason (Venus stationing retrograde) the divorce papers were mishandled and were therefore never made official by a judge.  In other words, their divorce never when through.  They remained legally married.

This turned out to be a good thing for Khloe and Lamar as they changed their minds a few months later.  The following October, soon after Venus station direct again in September - they had a change of heart and decided to give the marriage another try.  In other words, the 'went back' into their marriage - described by Venus retrograde.   In October 2015 they announced that they were giving their marriage another try.  It was a big story in the news.

This is the type of event that can happen during Venus retrograde.  It may not happen every time (if it did, people would be divorcing and reconciling ever year!)  But if you do make a big change in your romantic life or marriage during the time that Venus is retrograde - there is a chance that you will change your minds.  Even if you don't change your minds then for some reason the paperwork may not go through or some other sort of setback occurs to delay things.

This could work the opposite way as well, if you start a relationship around a Venus retrograde then you may end up changing your mind when Venus stations direct.  The best thing to do is wait until Venus stations direct before making any final decisions about a relationship (or financial or artistic matter.)

 Venus retrograde was felt very strongly by Khloe Kadashian and Lamar Odom.  They tried to divorce, it didn't go through and they changed their minds and tried again to stay together.  Unfortunately, they could not stay together and the following year, they did change their minds again and filed for divorce a second time.  This time Venus was not retrograde and their second divorce became final in December 2016.

 

Sep 23 2018    Mercury    Sqr    Saturn   
02°Li47' D    02°Cp47' D

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. 



Sep 23 2018    Mercury    Tri    Mars   
03°Li26' D    03°Aq26' 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. 

Sept 24, 2018 Full Moon
2 deg Aries

Full Moons show a fruition or completion of a matter or the next step revealed from something that may have begun in the previous New Moon on Sept 9th. 

Because the Moon is full and bright, matters that may have been hidden may come out into the light around this time.

People may be feeling more stressed than usual due to the full moon energy.  So be prepared for emotions to run high.

Relationship issues may become the focus of energies around a Full Moon since it is a relationship aspect of the opposition, Sun and Moon, masculine and feminine.  It may also be an internal relationship between following your instincts/cravings (Moon) or doing what society expects (Sun).  Put another way, following unconscious drives vs conscious decision making.

The opposition falls in Aries and Libra, our own personal actions and considering others points of view.  So the stress could very well center around relationships, court appearances, or competitors (or elections).

Sep 25 2018    Sun    Sqr    Saturn  
02°Li51' D    02°Cp51' D

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.

A tough day for leaders.  Saturn square presents some unexpected difficult challenge s or lessons today.  People in leadership positions may be challenged.  This is a test.  Now is the time to avoid being self-centered and impulsive.  Leaders must strategize and think long-term in goals and actions.  This is a time to struggle and sacrifice.  People need to work together and help each other.  This aspect may bring out a new project or decision of an international nature.

There may be a depressing atmosphere and people in positions of power may be challenged by those less important.  Humility, hard work and taking responsibility is called for.



Sep 27 2018    Sun    Tri    Mars   
04°Li48' D    04°Aq48' 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. 



Sep 30 2018    Pluto Station Direct
        18°Cp45' D    


Pluto stationed retrograde back on April 22, 2018 and is now stopping and moving forward again today.   This means that there may be some changes now that have been on hold or hidden since last April.  There may be huge events like earthquakes or other changes which are final.  Some may experience life/death issues now or some other sort of crisis in some area of life.  Power struggles with others and/or dealings with secretive or criminal enterprises may become an issue today.
