Thursday, 1 March 2018


We live in interesting times! … March spans the signs Pisces and Aries and the contrast between watery confusion and empathy (Neptune) and the fiery assertiveness of Aries (ruled by Mars, god of war) coexist, very frustratingly. The war in Syria particularly, so hard to define because of its multifaceted, multi nation involvement, is increasingly more ruthless and tragic whilst the world and the UN stand by, paralysed as so many vested interests are involved. .. We can only wring our hands with compassion for the suffering and feel totally at a loss. Never has war been more complex and less binary.  Globalisation has a significant downside… and when Pluto (power) was in Sagittarius (internationalism) from 1995-2008, its potential fallout and complexities were established.

Mercury in Aries from the 6th moves retrograde on the 23rd and remains so till April 15th. When Mercury moves retrograde it often correlates with frustrations misunderstandings, technical hiccups and travel disruption and from Aries, personal will is particularly frustrated. It is in fact a period, thrust upon us, as it is a need for pause and reflection and a need to rethink direction and policy with some humility and to be prepared for learning curves, both globally and personally.

Mars is strong this month especially around the 1st and the 24th and 31st. Aggression and ruthlessness are highlighted.

Whist Jupiter (enlightenment) sails through Scorpio (sexuality), there is an ongoing revelation of sexual scandal, paralleled by ongoing unprecedented determination to stand up for justice (Jupiter) and to cleanse any abusive cultures.

Scorpio also rules issues related to death and the recent horrific gun crime against schoolchildren in the USA, is now facing a significant backlash from many, against the status of the current gun laws in the States. Again a need for justice and a revolution re the power of the gun lobby is demanded. Even Trump, hugely supported financially by the gun lobby (the RA), is conceding a problem, but his solution is not quite what many have in mind….

Trump has a difficult Saturn transit opposing his Mercury (every 30 years) through March and it becomes stronger again in May. Blocks to action and a need to rethink policy and reality checks abound and his financial issues are challenged, but he also has some protection from Jupiter this month that may stave off some issues temporarily till May.

Theresa May is also haunted by Saturn squaring her Sun (every 15 years) throughout March (and April) and strong again in May, significantly challenging her power and standing on the international stage, as the Brexit negotiations continue to be fraught with uncertainty and chaos and rebellions..

Positive forces this month are on the 13th and 14th when the Sun trines Jupiter, the 11th when the Sun sextile Pluto and the 2nd and 3rd when Mercury trines Jupiter, which can bring some positive energies at work on our planet.

This is another rare blue Moon month (meaning 2 full moons within the same month) as indeed, very unusually, we also had in January.   As noted above, we live in interesting times

The first full Moon is on 1st/2nd at 11 degrees of Virgo at 0.52 GMT. The second is on the 31st at 10 degrees of Libra at 12.38 GMT. The full Moon is synonymous with the culmination of the old and outworn. The unconscious erupts and there is a feeling of rather violent release of pent up emotions; a high tide of the unconscious in fact.

The new Moon this month is on the 17th at 26 degrees of Pisces at 13.13 GMT.
This equates with the birth and initiation of the new. When we need to and can, sow new seeds.


April is a time for some self-reflection and privacy, but from the 6th all born up to April 7th will find your mind in hyper charged state and communications will be important to you, but beware that from the 23rd Mercury moves retrograde ,which can indicate misunderstandings, delays, blocks and failed communications.  Try and achieve progress before that date

Also from the 6th, all of you will however have Venus on your side bringing love, affection, charms, admiration and positivity around relationships.

Before the 17th, if born after April 9th, there is drive and energy for academic work and travel.  You are constructive, driven and energised.

However, after the 17th, if born up to March 29th there is irritation, impatience, lack of tolerance, particularly at work and others may prove difficult.  Stop and think. 

Saturn is also now squaring the Suns of those born March 27th to 30th.  There are some blocks, delays, restrictions and tiredness.  Take care of your body.  Be grounded, disciplined.  Step up to the plate and don’t let lack of confidence get you down, particularly at work.

Uranus is currently still creating some chaos for those born April 15th to 19th.  Change is big, but has been for some time.  Be flexible.  Go with the flow and know this is a transition that will shortly be over and you will be in a very difference place to where you were a year or so ago. 

Finally Pluto is now squaring the Suns of those born April 9th to 12th.  This very long transit will bring endings and changes that are quite profound and deep.  Remember that Pluto can be eruptive and things come to the surfaces that have been bubbling for many years.  You are battling with yourself and therefore potentially with others.  Be very conscious, calm and know that ultimately there is a phoenix out of this transition that can feel quite fated. 


Friends and social groups and goals may be more significant this month and bring harmony and happiness to your life.

After the 6th, some of you may feel a need for some privacy as you may feel a bit isolated in your thinking.

Beware that after the 23rd when Mercury goes retrograde, things can become even more difficult to explain to people and misunderstandings are possible. 

Also, from the 6th, your affections are very private and your ability to be there for people who need your help is very strong.  Passion predominates in a rather behind the scenes way. 

After the 17th, Mars is very supportive of all those born up to April 29th.  Travel and academia is favoured and your delivery of energy and communications is purposeful and determined. 

Before the 6th, for all born after May 12th, love and friendship really can combine. 

Jupiter all month is very much impacting those born May 12th to 15th.  By opposition, he is bringing expansion, some extravagance, travel and bonuses from other people and enjoyment.  The only danger is beware of a bit of arrogance or biting off more than you can chew. 

Saturn however is providing a real focus of discipline and constructive activity for all born April 27th to 30th.  Travel may be for duty or work purposes, but there is a sense of pragmatism and practicality, which can take you far.  Reality checks mean that you step up to the plate.

Neptune is starting to really inspire the lives of those born May 3rd to 6th.  He is bringing extra empathy and compassion for those who need it.  Sensitivity to world events; and also a great deal of creative inspiration to do with music, the arts, literature and also spending time in the country near nature or by the sea is truly meaningful and precious.  Your heart centre is becoming more powerful and your ego is downgraded on that basis in a very relieving way. 

Finally Pluto, now directly trining the Suns of those born May 10th to 13th, is bringing real empowerment from higher learning, wisdom, far off places and a sense of courage.  He is regenerating you.


Career can be a focus this month, with so much emphasis on Pisces and from the 6th, communications with friends and about valued projects will be powerful, particularly if born up to June 8th

However beware, that from the 23rd, Mercury moves retrograde and as your ruler, that is significant for you, as you may find that your goals and communications with friends cause problems.  You may not be in the right place at the right time. 

However, Venus will for all of you, bring continued affection and a sense of a very good social circle, which provide you with happiness. 

Mars, before the 17th, is opposing the Suns of those born after June 10th.  Be aware that there are some people who are not a pushover and who may be challenging.  Be adaptable and tolerant, but keep an eye out. 

Uranus is currently giving a boost for a final time after several years of being supportive, to all those born June 16th to 20th.  Your humanitarian side and your ability to be a catalyst for others for change and for freedom is strong. Unusual, unique people are continuing to be a catalyst for you and for advances in your friendships. 

However, if born June 3rd to 6th, Neptune is bringing a little confusion into your life.  There is a feeling that suddenly you need your heart to be engaged with what you do and a sense of dissolving with your current status may be in the air.  You need more spirituality, more heart and more creativity in your life.  This is quite a long journey.  Let it unfurl gradually and know that some things are too important to be left to just the mind/intellect alone.


This is a good month for travel and for the higher mind’s purpose for learning. 

However, after the 6th, when Mercury goes into Aries, there may be some issues at work that you need to ensure clarity on in communications, particularly if born up to July 7th.  After the 23rd, many things will be put on hold or blocked, so achieve as much as possible before that date.

Also, after the 6th, all of you need to be a little bit careful about sycophancy at work.  Charm isn’t always the answer.  Don’t expect too much of people. 

After the 17th, if born up to June 30th, there may be some war drums from other people.  Other people are not pushovers and they may well be quite challenging, so tread carefully. 

However, if born July 14th to 17th, love life can get a boost, as does social life and issues to do with offspring are particularly pleasurable.  Creativity is also starred. 

For those born June 28th to 30th, there is also an opposition currently from Saturn, which happens once every 30 years and this will bring a feeling of some reality checks about people and wake up calls.  People can behave as if they’re blocking you or restricting you and you are recognising some facts that you have to deal with.  Look after your body and accept that restrictions and limitations are there to learn from.

Uranus is finalising his long visitation by square to those born July 17th to 21st.  Over the last year or so there has been restlessness and a desire for change, possibly around career.  This journey now of some chaos and unpredictability is finally showing its conclusion. 

Neptune is inspiring now to those born July 5th to 8th.  Inspiration is coming from other countries, from learning, from wisdom and also is bringing extra sensitivity and creativity and a spiritual awareness to your being. 

Pluto however, is beginning to really impact the lives of those born July 12th to 15th.  Other people with power can feel quite over-bearing.  Draw a boundary around those who are in any way controlling and if necessary walk away.  Power struggles are potentials.  Deal with it with wisdom, consciousness and be squeaky clean in behaviour and motive. 


Leos are forced to be more profound this month and need to be aware of complex issues that go beyond the personal ego.

However, from the 6th, the added dimension of potential travel and communication skills are emphasised, but from the 23rd when Mercury goes retrograde, it is much more difficult to achieve your goals when you planned. 

However, also after the 6th, you will all get the benefit of the potential for love life or shining through travel or through higher learning in some way.  Your charms and the power of love are underscored. 

Before the 17th, all born after August 12th should feel that love life and children’s issues are especially enhancing of their lives.  Energy, drive, passion are all yours and it can be very constructive.

However if born August 14th to 17th, be aware that Jupiter is squaring your Sun, making you rather self-indulgent, extravagant and expecting too much of life.  Enjoy, but with caution. 

Uranus is finalising his rare trine transit to the Suns of those born August 17th to 22nd.  For this group the last year or so has brought a feeling of change, excitement, looking outside the box, insight and possibly awakening travel.  Others have been catalysts for you.  You are now beginning to really see the benefit and you will realise that you are not quite the same person as you were.


Relationships are significant factors in your life this month in a positive way.

Before the 6th, all born after September 14th will be the receivers of affection from others.  Love life is definitely flagged up.

For all born after September 12th, before the 6th there are ample opportunities for excellent communications and to receive very good feedback from others. 

Before the 17th, if born after September 13th, you need to be a little bit cautious on the home and family fronts as you are a little bit prone to be clumsy, in communications or in action; and family problems can result.  Your determination may not be in harmony with those around you and equally others may irritate you on the home front.

However, after the 17th, if born up to August 31st, your actions are constructive, creative and dealings with others, particularly offspring are purposeful and rewarding.
 Mercury, your ruler, is retrograde from the 23rd and will remain so till April 15th, so be aware of the delays and rethinking of issues that will be apparent and somehow necessary then.

Jupiter is also now favouring those born September 14th to 17th.  Wisdom is yours and harmony and your ability to communicate with others brings you a bonus.  Opportunities are there to grab.  Positive optimism is in the air. 

Even Saturn is on your side now, for those born August 30th to September 2nd, in a constructive and mature way.  You are being very focused and disciplined and able to do things that at other times you would find difficult.  Dealing with love life and offspring, although demanding, is something that you rise to with dignity and success.

Neptune is currently opposing the Suns of those born September 5th to 8th.  For this group, just watch for other people not being as completely black and white as you would think.  You are also projecting onto other people idealisations and generally not seeing clearly.  Keep grounded, check the small print.  Literally and metaphorically, but you are certainly idealistic, inspired creatively and sensitive, possibly more than you have felt for many years.

Finally Pluto is very positive for those born September 12th to 15th.  This rare transit is bringing confidence, courage, and assertion in a constructive way to do with creativity, children’s issues and romance. 
The full Moon of the 1st/2nd in Virgo, directly impacts those born September 3rd –5th. This may manifest a a bit of a wake up call to some burgeoning truths that show themselves and can also correlate with endings of certain chapters, that maybe necessary.


Routine, work and health may be things that you are particularly caring about this month.  

After the 6th, Venus will for all of you really highlight love life and affections of the heart centre.  Others are blessings in your life.

Also after the 6th, if born up to October 10th, communications with others are extremely positive and bring great progress.  However, on the 23rd, Mercury moves retrograde, which means that from then on, for a few weeks, communications are not so reliable, so get communications that are necessary achieved before that date.

Before the 17th, if born after October 13th, your mind is active, intelligent and determined and you achieve a lot with a sort of energetic spirit. 

However, after the 17th, if born up to October 1st, be wary that on the family and home front there can be a few little war drums audible, as others are irritated or irritating; and you may be a little bit over-assertive in that area.

Saturn is currently, as you probably know, in Capricorn, which is not so friendly to your sign and is currently squaring the Suns of those born October 1st and 2nd.  For this group some reality checks are emerging, potentially about home and family. Blocks, restrictions and frustrations are in the air.  You also need to recognise that you can feel tired, so pace yourself.  It’s a time for practical restructuring and facing some facts and not running away from them.

Uranus is coming to the end of a about a year long focus on relationships for those born October 19th to 22nd.  Others have been unpredictable and created some stress.  Relationship change, internally and externally has been around but it has ultimately been a catalyst for your personal freedom, even if it has felt uncomfortable. 

Pluto has now moved in his slow journey through Capricorn to square the Suns of those born October 13th to 16th.  There is a feeling for this group that over the next year or so of changes and endings of chapters.  Some battles internally are connected to your needing to empower yourself.  Do not be afraid of this confrontation.  Do not repress it. 

The second full Moon of the month falls in your sign is on the 31st and impacts those born October 3rd –5th.  Be prepared for closures and for the eruption of your or others unconscious, that can reveal some truths and realities, that need to be aired.


March can be a very positive time for many of you, creatively and romantically; and indeed before the 6th all born after November 12th will find that your communication skills, particularly if you are a writer, are particularly astute.  The communication with offspring and love life is very effective. 

All born after November 15th will have an opportunity before the 6th to really enjoy the fruits of romance, offspring and creative skills. 

After the 17th, if born up to October 31st, your relationship with Mars will bring you added assertiveness which will be constructive in your speech and communication.  Your energy is high, well focused and gives you achievement.

Jupiter, of course, is now in your sign, which is currently particularly excellent for those born November 14th to 17th.  For this group travel, expansiveness, confidence, buoyancy, growth – internally and externally – is all yours. Financial issues can also be a source of optimism and joy.  This once every twelve year visitation should be appreciated.

Saturn is giving a certain measure of caution to those born October 31st to November 2nd.  Your grounded, mature approach to thought and communications will serve you well.

Neptune is now really inspiring those born November 5th to 8th.  He is bringing extra inspiration to do with the arts, extra joy to do with offspring and idealism and fulfilment in love life.  The heart centre is really expanding.

Even your ruler Pluto is being constructive now to those born November 12th to 15th.  He is bringing even greater power to your elbow, which is being well used and constructive and regenerative and transformative in your thinking and your wisdom.  Enjoy.  It is with you for about another year.


Focus on home and family is strong this month and at times there may be a need to clarify issues and sort things out. 

However, after the 6th, if born up to December 17th, communications with offspring particularly and in creative fields and connected to those who you love, can be very improved, although after the 23rd, when Mercury goes retrograde, that can go a little bit off route, so make sure communications that are necessary are achieved before then.

Certainly after the 6th, for all of you, with Venus in Aries, there will be a great feeling of love permeating your life from others, as well as inspired creative skills as well, which will help you all. 

Mars is in your sign before the 17th, directly affecting all born after December 12th. This gives courage, determination, ambition and assertion, but make sure it doesn’t tip into over-assertion or slight impatient aggression. 

Uranus is coming to a close of being inspiring to all born December 17th to 20th.  The last year has seen you daring for new and awakening to new possibilities.  Creativity and love life has been given a spark with different people who have shown you new ways of looking at things; and even offspring issues have been a source of pleasant liberation and surprise.  That is now coming to a close and you will appreciate what you have experienced. 

Neptune, however, is slightly confusing now on some level to all born December 5th to 8th.  There is a sign of disorientation, tiredness, a sort of existential sense of realising that you are shifting and changing.  The ground beneath your feet isn’t so firm.  This is a natural and inevitable journey where you have to trust the trade winds to get you to the right place, but be sure that it is your heart and soul that is guiding you now, more than your ego and that is good.  Uncertainty is part of the picture. Trust.


The power of the mind is strong this month and communications will bring progress.  Be aware however after the 6th, if born up to January 8th, communications can be a little trickier with family; and particularly after the 23rd when Mercury moves retrograde, so make sure everything is clear.

However, also after the 6th, for all of you, with Venus in your sign, love and generosity is strong.  Just beware that you don’t expect too much of others or of self and check that you’re spending is not out of control. For Capricorns, that’s rarely the case however.

Mars moves into your sign on the 17th, directly affecting all those born up to December 30th.  Therefore after the 17th, many of you born in that period, will be extremely assertive, determined, ambitious and driven.  Just make sure it doesn’t become bossy or aggressive.

Jupiter is very much in positive alignment now to the Suns of those born January 12th to 15th.  He is bringing a great deal of optimism to your goals and friends rally around to help.  You are a great leader and your intelligence in guiding you brings luck and expansion. 

Saturn, however, is in your sign now as you probably know, and is currently directly sitting on the Suns of those born December 28th to 31st.  This once every 30 year hit is designed to make you grow up, face facts, step up to the plate, look after your body and also to ensure that practicalities and pragmatism is attended to.  Saturn is your ruling planet, so this is significant.  Challenges should not be shirked through lack of confidence. 

Uranus is closing is long chapter of about a year, of some uncertainty and unwelcome disruption possibly for those born January 15th to 19th.  Home and family issues have not been too stable, but at the same time there has been some liberation as a result of changes.  Increased calm is very much imminent. 

Neptune is helpful for those born January 3rd to the 6th.  He is bringing more gentleness and sensitivity to your communications, thinking and increased empathy, as well as creative inspiration. 

However, Pluto is now really powerful in his once every 248 visitation to the Suns of those born January 10th to 13th.  This long period that you’re entering into is about significant challenge and empowerment.  Handle wisely, with consciousness and with a squeaky-clean motive and agenda.  Endings are potentially in the air over the coming year or so, but also the opportunity to show that you’re prepared to embrace your destiny in terms of what you’re meant to do.  Do not abuse power.  Do not allow yourself to be tempted into ego motivation.  This is about transformation, self-invention for the greater good, of not only you, but for everyone.  Humility is your best friend, as wise use of your power calls. If times are tough at times, remember the phoenix. 


Focus on finances and security will not go astray this month and after the 6th, all born up to January 28th will find their communications skills extra honed. 

For all of you, after the 6th, your communications will be tinged with love and charm.  Your heart and your mind will combine which will be very persuasive and impressive to others. From the 23rd , however ,when Mercury moves retrograde, till the 15th of April , beware of complacency re communicationd being clear and prepare for blocks and delays including potential transport difficulties. Take time out during this period to reflect. on direction and goals.

Before the 17th, Mars, for all born after February 9th, will give you leadership ability, courage and determination to achieve your goals, particularly when combined with other people’s efforts and your determination to achieve your idealism will be successful. 

Jupiter however, is going to be squaring the Suns of those born February 10th to 13th.  This brings temptation to over indulge or be over confident, particularly in your working life, or to take on too much, to bite off more than you can chew.  Also, just be aware of a tinge of a possible sense of self-entitlement or even arrogance.  Bearing that in mind, success can be yours.  

Uranus your ruling planet , (the maverick freedom loving planet) is curremrlystill harmomising wuth the Suns of those born February 13th-17th. For this group this is last chance saloon opportunity for , or the finalisation of, a period where you determineto be your own person, expressing yourself with the powerful intuition you have and to not be afraid to honour your big picture understanding of the world around you. Opportunities to express yourself clearly and intelligently with a characteristic detachment and futuristic spin, which has impact on others, are in the ether.


This is your month, so you can shine and enjoy yourself, particularly before the 6th when all born after March 12th have Venus contacting their Suns by conjunction. For this group, that period will be punctuated by love, happiness, friendship and a sense of well being. 
 Mercury your relationship ruler, will be moving retrograde from the 23rd till April 15th, so during that period ensure there is little room for misunderstandings with others, be clear.

Before the 17th however, all born after March 10th also have Mars challenging their Suns, which means that there will be simultaneously a sense of some over-assertiveness from others, particularly domestically and there will possibly be some impatience.  Don’t take on too much.  Others may be a bit intimidated by your energy. 

However, after the 17th, for all born up to February 27th, your goals and energy will be fruitfully rewarded, particularly when working with others or towards your goals. 

Jupiter is also very friendly now for those born March 12th to 15th.  It’s brilliant for travel and for long distance issues and connections.  It brings a boost to confidence, optimism and also an extra dose of wisdom and growth.

Even Saturn is kindly disposed now towards those born February 27th to 30th.  He is bringing a sense of discipline and focus and maturity to your goals and hard work pays off and others admire your successful endeavours and discipline. 

Neptune, going through your sign for the long haul, has now reached the point where he is sitting on the Suns of those born March 3rd to 6th.  For this group, this once every 165 transit is going to bring out the most extreme Pisces qualities within you, both positive and negative.  Inspiring, creative, idealistic, spiritual, empathetic and sensitive, but also potentially over-idealistic, hypersensitive, escapist and unrealistic.  Try and enjoy the positive. 

For those born March 10th to 13th, Pluto has now reach a point of sextiling your Sun.  Again, this rare transit is powerful but very positive.  He brings a sense of destiny.  He empowers you to empower other people.  He can be a force for self-regeneration and self-recreation and allows you to demonstrate your determination to achieve what is necessary, but ensure it’s for the good of all and not just yourself.

The new Moon falls in your sign on 17th, directly affecting those born March 16th-18th. This brings the innovative and the feeling of a new chapter being born, and also allows you to sow seeds for the future, literally maybe and certainly metaphorically.

Thursday, 1 February 2018


This is the month of Aquarius, the sign ruled by Uranus. A sign of the innovative, even the maverick and also the intuitive, the humanitarian, the inclusive and the outside the box, big picture vision and of the future. It also directly relates to the technological and what can be made possible through this. That is all-fine, as long as the motive is for the greater good of all and the planet, and not just related to money and greed.

Jupiter is now established in Scorpio till November 8th. This is a position of intensity, insight and forensic in nature. Finances and economic issues loom large in consciousness and truth will out re the failings of economic systems and re secretive misused power in that arena and also, as has already been shown, the failings in our sexual attitudes. Powerful stances will be made as strong principles are highlighted and felt and demonstrated powerfully re money and sexuality. Insular desires for self-protection and nationalism however will remain strong.

Mars has left Scorpio finally. He was there from December 9th till January 26th. That position is powerful, secretive and can bring significant use of power and real standoffs, because of fixity and refusal to compromise, that can be dangerous. Mars is a trigger planet and when in Scorpio those triggers pulled can have powerful consequences… Again motive is everything. Great good, or the opposite. Scorpio power can be likened in its intensity to either that of saint or sinner.  Globally, Scorpio puts emphasis of discovery of abuse of power financially and related to sexuality

From Mars’ new position in Sagittarius, he is more international, idealistic, open and adventurous.  Globalised issues and the fight for equality and human rights will be addressed more vociferously. Global dynamics will be an increased focus.

When Jupiter moves into Sagittarius next November, a new chapter of reclaiming the benefits of working together globally will be revealed.

Saturn now established in Capricorn, since December 20th 2017 and where he will stay till December 2020 will be trying for England, (Capricorn country) economically and structurally. No prizes for seeing that one coming.

 It will be difficult for Trump in this month and next as Saturn squares his Neptune (every 15 years) and then opposes his Mercury (every 30 years), bringing disappointments/reality checks, disillusionment and blocks to his plans and also challenges re finances, relating to his own and other countries, despite the recently much vaunted US economic boom.

 Teresa May will also be facing Saturn challenges and reality checks and frustrations connected to her personal reputation and authority in March, April and May as Saturn squares up to her Sun. (Every 15 years). She also has Neptune back on her Mars again this month, which indicates a weakening of her position and hidden smoke and mirror forces and conspiracies from men in her orbit.

The second half of this month sees Venus in Pisces from the 10th and Mercury and the Sun in Pisces from the 18th. This globally will bring some idealism at best and supports the arts and the outpouring of emotion and creativity, but negatively it can bring lack of objectivity, smoke and mirrors, deceptions, over idealism and even potential delusion, notably around the 25th/26th when Mercury conjuncts Neptune (in his home sign of Pisces for the long haul).

The arts (particularly music and film) are particularly favoured around the 22nd/23rd when Venus conjuncts Neptune.

Around the 17th and 18th, when Mars squares Neptune undercover issues are strong and lack of clarity is dominant. Also there is also a potential sense of emasculation in the face of some global challenges.

There is a partial solar eclipse on the 15th at 27 degrees of Aquarius, exact at 20.52 GMT. This is in good relationship to Uranus and Mercury This will signify a furtherance of a renewed fighting for human rights and humanitarian issues, not least women’s rights and the fight for equality. Changes and crises that may happen then can ultimately be a force for good.  The eclipse also opposes Trump’s Mars suggesting major changes in his position as a result of events and challenges from others.


A month of working together with others for a cause, which  also can be  sociable, is flagged up and your leadership potential and shine. 

Indeed, all of you before the 18th will have excellent communication skills, contributing to a common goal. 

Before the 10th, if born after April 7th, love and friendship can combine and affections are forthcoming from others with whom you collaborate.

Mars, now in Sagittarius, is bringing for all born March 22nd to April 10th a pioneering attitude to travel and your determination and courage is underlined, as is success and ambition. 

Saturn, now in Capricorn, is challenging those born March 24th to 29th.  Restrictions and problems at work are likely.  Have patience, be real and get rest, but there are reality checks around. 

Uranus is still haunting those born April 14th 17th.  This will be over by the end of March when you will look back and see what revolutions have occurred in the last year or so and what change has been affected that has catapulted you into a more aware sense of self and the future.

Finally, Pluto is still bringing to those born April 7th to 10, the potential for some power struggles within oneself and with others in authority.  Ensure you do not abuse power or indeed allow others to.  Be conscious, controlled, but know you are in a period, particularly career wise, of transformation and self-reinvention.  Just keep control.


There is no room for taking your eye off the ball at work, where you can shine, but be careful that you do not over-reach or be over-confident.

For all born after May 7th, it is important to remember that before the 10th, sycophancy may not pay off. 

All of you need to ensure that your communications are thoroughly understood in the work place.

After the 18th, all born up to May 10th will have excellent ability to receive and give wisdom from and to friends and leadership communication is underlined. 

After the 10th, all born up to May 13th will enjoy the opportunity that friends give for harmony, affection and living life to the full.

Jupiter in your opposite sign is now bringing to all those born May 11th to 15th a feeling of exuberance, confidence and belief.  It’s good for travel but it could also lead to a little bit over-zealous expectation or over-expansiveness. Enjoy, but with some care.

Saturn however is a very much a mature, constructive disciplining influence on those born April 24th to 29th.  Work may be to do with travel and serious attitudes are needed in study and in legal issues.  Duty is in the air, but it is all-progressive.  Discipline and patience is needed, which gains you admiration. 

Neptune is continuing to baptise all born May 2nd to 5th with a sense of empathy, sensitivity, emotional richness and a need for emotional connection with soul mates.  Creativity is hugely underlined and the heart and the spiritual cannot be avoided.

Finally all born May 9th to 12th are still enjoying the incredible empowerment that Pluto is bringing.  Wisdom, study and positive influences can come from long distance. Regeneration, transformation and a sense of destiny is yours, provided it is all used for the greater good.


This is an  excellent month for travel and planning for such; and for legal and study issues.

After the 18th, all born up to June 10th however, need to be aware that carelessness at work or not stopping and thinking before you speak or do, can backfire.  Don’t assume everybody gets the message.

After the 10th, all born up to June 14th need to be careful about schmoozing up to other people for the sake of personal advantage.  Hypocrisy could be in the air.

Mars may be bringing a temptation for a little bit of irritability and impatience for all born May 24th to June 11th; and this may well come from other people.  People are standing up to you and some tact and diplomacy would help on both your parts. 

Uranus is about to finish a long year period of creating the new and the exciting in terms of opportunities and more freedom for those born June 15th to 18th.  You are now recognising a sense of your own uniqueness and how it can benefit others. 

However, if born June 2nd to 5th, you are still susceptible to not seeing clearly and being self-deceptive or deceived by others in your public or working life.  Sensitivity is yours, so is over-idealism and potential projected fantasy about others or self.  Keep real.


There may be a need to focus on deeper truths in relationships as well as on complex issues connected to joint resources.

However, after the 18th, if born up to July 1st, one’s ability to learn and to be successful in academic issues and through persuading other people of the truth and having excellent communication skills should not be under-estimated. Travel too and long distance dealings are very favoured.

Also, after the 10th, for all born up to July 15th, love, combined with travel and study somehow may be underlined. 

Jupiter, now happily relating to your sign is bringing benefits to those born July 13th to 17th.  Full enjoyment of life is possible.  Confidence and belief in self.  Love life and children bring joy and creative skills are unleashed.  Buoyancy and growth is indicated.

Uranus, however, is about to complete his final journey of causing some disruption and unpredictability in the lives of those born July 16th to 19th.  Work has been uncertain, changeable and unsettling, but now you are realising that the journey is now more consistent and taking you to a more logical place for you. 

Neptune is still truly inspiring for those born July 4th to 7th.  Higher consciousness, higher learning, spiritual pursuits and creativity and extra sensitivity is yours.

If born July 11th to 14th you are still of necessity, being forced to deal with possible relationships that are coercive, pressured and challenging and you are required to be very conscious and controlled and to walk away if necessary, but draw boundaries.  Endings of chapters are around.


Relationships are full on this month and they may hold the power.  In fact, for all of you, communications are of paramount importance, but be sure you listen as well as speak.

Before the 10th, all born after August 9th may find an extra dose of Cupid charming your life but people’s generosity should not be taken for granted. 

Mars is also on your side all month if born July 26th to August 13th.  He is bringing confidence and competitiveness and constructive energy into all areas to do with romance, creativity and in speculative ventures. You’re fiery and determined and ambition can be successful. 

However, if born August 13th to 17th Jupiter can bring a tendency to be over-confident,  or over-expansive, or a sense of entitlement may become a problem, particularly to do with real estate and family issues, but positivity is yours if handled with caution and some humility. 

Uranus is just about to finalise a long eighteen-month period where those born August 16th to 20th have benefited from opportunities for growth and enlightenment from long distance issues, legal issues and intellectual learning.  This entire group will become slightly less subjective and more big picture orientated, which brings a positive and more enlightened view of self and the universe.  You are more super-conscious now.


Everyday work issues may need some rationalisation to your advantage and it’s also true to say that you can work hard successfully on health issues this month.   

Later in the month, relationships come to the fore and indeed, after the 18th, for all born up to September 12th, communications with those close to you, can be seriously enhanced and you receive very positive feedback from others. 

Equally, all born up to September 15th can attract love and affection and generosity from others.

However, for those born August 26th to September 13th, Mars is causing some irritation on the home front.  Other people are bumptious, contentious, irritated and you yourself may be creating waves with a sort of clumsy approach, around family or on the home front. 

Jupiter however is very constructive now for those born September 13th to 17th.  He is bringing the confidence in speech and thought, extra wisdom and belief in self, as optimism and positive thinking is underlined.

Saturn too is constructive now for those born August 27th to September 1st.  He is bringing a very mature attitude towards love life and a great sense of responsibility and duty towards offspring.  Hard work and discipline pays off creatively too.  Progress and enjoyment are the results of discipline and hard work.

Neptune is, for those born September 4th to 7th, still creating an atmosphere of over-idealism towards others, of perceiving them as either being heroes to worships or victims to save.  They are neither and you need to check out the credentials of people on a very realistic basis, but inspiration and idealism is yours; and appreciation of nature is a positive angle of this opposition from Neptune. 

Finally, those born September 10th to 14th are being empowered to believe in you and  to enable self-transformation and re-invention creatively, romantically and with a sense of destiny.  This continues until May 2019.  Enjoy.


This can be a month of fun, enjoyment, creativity and party time.  Romance too is very much part of the picture; and very good communication with offspring is underlined and it is also very good for writers.

All born after October 10th will have the favours of Cupid flagged up, as your charms attract those of others. 

Mars is also constructive now if born September 26th to October 14th.  You’re assertive in a very constructive way and can argue your case.  Your mind is powerful and persuasive and successful, as is your written and spoken word. 

Saturn is square to your sign now and is bringing some challenges to those born September 27th to October 2nd.  Some issues to do with real estate or family may feel problematic or restrictive or confidence may be lowered.  Delays are in the air, but if you are on the right path, a little more focus, discipline and patience will pay off, but look after your body and get rest.

Uranus long opposition transit is finally coming to an end now for those born October 17th to 20th in his influence that has been rather disruptive in terms of relationships.  Others’ chaotic behaviour has been uncomfortable but actually has opened new doors for you that maybe would not have opened for yourself and they are leading to better places; and awakening you to your true potential. 

Finally, Pluto is still affecting those born October 11th to 15th in a way that is not always comfortable.  Be aware that you are struggling with yourself as much as others, but others will trigger some disruption, notably on the home front.  This is about you finding your own true purpose.  Do it gently, with consciousness and rise above power struggles of a disruptive nature.


Home, real estate, family is big issue.  Communications connected to these is very important and it is vital that you have no room for misunderstanding from you to others or others to you, particularly with family. 

If born after November 9th, be wary of hypocrisy and also of over-extravagance towards home and family, or even over-optimism. 

However, after the 18th, all born up to November 12th will be very able to communicate with love and affection and also creatively.

After the 10th, all born up to November 15th will attract fun, love, and affections.  Sociability is strong and harmony with offspring is highlighted.

Jupiter, now in your sign of course, will be bringing for those born November 13th to 17th a once every twelve year boost to confidence, growth, luck and possibly financial gain.  Travel is also hugely implicated.  Just don’t push your luck with arrogance.

Saturn is constructive and maturing if born October 27th to November 1st.  He is bringing thoughtfulness, caution, care, and reflection to your thinking and your speaking which is ultimately constructive and focused.  Discipline is yours.

Neptune is still enhancing the lives of those born November 4th to 7th, with some magic that brings extra creative skills, particularly to do with music, the film world, and a love of the sea.  Great appreciation of children and love life has an idealistic fantasy level about it, but in a rather happy and constructive way.  The heart centre is powerful and empathy is too.

Finally, Pluto your powerful ruler is, for those born November 10th to 14th, still underlining your Scorpionic insight, profundity, strength, courage and truth.  Just be conscious of using this power wisely, constructively and for the greater good; and you can move mountains. 


Your mind and communication skills are extra sharp and you can combine love and reason very effectively before the 10th, if born after December 9th.

However, after the 18th if born up to December 12th, be aware that there is room for some misspeaking or confusion or misunderstandings on the home and family front. 

After the 10th, if born up to December 15th, over-indulgence of others or over-expansion and over-spending is also a possibility, connected again to home and family.

Mars is in your sign now, directly impacting those born November 25th to December 13th.  For this group, assertion, determination and ambition is strong.  It just needs to be reigned in, in case of a temptation for aggression or over-assertion, but determination can bring courage and success, not least related to foreign adventures. 

Uranus is finalising his long period of over a year of inspiring those born December 16th to 19th.  He has awoken many of you to the power of love, creativity and to the exciting impact of offspring.  He has liberated your uniqueness, which you are now more proud of. 

However, for those born December 4th to 7th, there is still an on-going sense of a metaphoric rather blind voyage on a sea with not compass, no oars.  Trust the trade winds to get you to another place, but in the meantime value your heart, but get rest and a sense of the dissolving of the old, which can make one feel insecure, is a very necessary part of this journey.  Just don’t push the river out of panic.  This is a circuitous voyage.    Trust.


Finances may figure more than usual, although they are often a focus for your sign anyway, but after the 18th for all born up to January 10th, your mind is particularly sharp, insightful and imaginative. 

After the 10th, if born up to January 13th, your charms and ability to combine harmony and beauty with your intellect is impressive.

Jupiter, in harmonious angle to your sign now, is bringing for those born January 11th to 15th an extra sense of sociability and friends are very positive influences in your life, as is travel.  Your luck in groups and in leadership is shining.  Confidence is yours and growth too.

Saturn, in your sign now for two and half years, is currently directly impacting those born December 25th to 30th.  You are no stranger to your ruling planet, but he is, for this group, bringing a sense of a reality check, a block, a restriction and a need to look after your physical being, but hard work and discipline, which you are no stranger to, will bring deferred gratification.
Uranus is about to finish his voyage, which has lasted for about a year and has impacted those born January 14th to 17th.  You will now see that the unpredictability that has haunted you around family, home, real estate and the feeling of uncertainty is now coming to a close and you will understand the journey and its conclusion and why; and feel in a more liberated space.

Those born January 2nd to 5th are still experiencing the magic of Neptune in his long transit of your Suns, by allowing your brain to be less practical, less materialistic and more inspired, empathetic, passionate and creative.  You and others will appreciate this. 

Finally, those born January 9th to 12th are still feeling the empowerment of Pluto on your Sun in this once every 248-year chapter.  Power is the key word.  Use it wisely.  Know your destiny is there.  Endings are following by amazing new starts, but the only true friend of Pluto is humility and non-selfishness.


Your month; you can shine and you may find yourself the centre of attention both intellectually and affection wise. 

However it is important too after the 10th to keep an eye on finances, which through intelligence and a good value system, can bring you advantage. The arts maybe also be a source of gain to you too.

For those born January 23rd to February 10th, your leadership skills and skills in coordinating groups is excellent and your determination and courage and ambition really pays off. 

However, there is a danger for those born February 10th to 14th of a little bit of over wielding of power or over-confidence or even a touch of arrogance or sense of entitlement on the work front, as Jupiter squares your Sun.  However, success is well within your reach.  Just have the humility.  Also be cautious about over generosity to self or indeed others… and beware of trying to do too much, or metaphorically biting off more than you can chew, at the expense of carelessness in some form.

Uranus, your ruler, has been favouring for about a year, those born February 13th to 15th.  This journey is over and it has, for many of you, brought an even greater bigger picture understanding of your own uniqueness and what vision you can offer to others.  You are liberated to be more true to yourself and the power of technology may have been revolutionary in a very positive way and you are more trusting of your intuition and your eureka moments, as a result of the past years journey. You may even look slightly different as your appearance may you feel be needed to match your awakened strong sense of self.

There is a partial solar eclipse on the 15th in your sign at 27 degrees. This will directly affect those born February14th-17th. This indicates a rejection of /freedom from the dark and outworn and the inviting in of the new and progressive.


Many of you may feel a little escapist or private, or are feeling just very watchful this month.

After the 18th, if born up to March 10th your communication skills should be used to the maximum advantage, but do listen as well as talk. 

After the 10th, if born up to March 13th, your appearances and charms and charisma are emphasised and you can attract much love and favours to yourself. 

However, Mars is a little challenging to those born February 21st to March 11th.  There may some war-drums on the work front and there may be irritation from  others, professionally or vice versa.  Do not be impatient or too forceful or too ambitious.  Others may feel threatened. 

Jupiter is very helpful now if born March 11th to 15th.  It is an excellent time for travel and international dealings and bonuses legally are there too.  There is a general feeling of well being, luck and progress.  Enjoy.

Saturn is bringing some austerity, but in a constructive way, to those born February 22nd to 27th.  Duty to others and even obligation is strong, but your social conscience is telling you that you have got karmic obligation to others which, if accepted, will bring much satisfaction.

Neptune, your ruler, is still going through his very powerful once every 165-year conjunction to the Suns of those born March 2nd to 5th.  This has been with you since the beginning of 2017 and is not over until January of next year.  This journey is bringing inspirations, spirituality, creativity, hypersensitivity, but negatively also escape or delusion or some smoke and mirrors from others or from you to self.  Use this positively for inspiration and for the power of the heart, but don’t lose touch with reality.

Pluto is continuing, and will be until of 2019, to bring to those born March 9th to 12th, a sense of destiny in terms of leadership, being empowered by others and experiencing strong friendships, which are healing, and you are capable of being transformative to others.  Courage and insight is yours.  Use for the greater good.  It can be magnificent. 

Monday, 1 January 2018


Welcome to 2018, when most of us I guess, are all looking ahead with a sense in the collective unconscious of a mixture of bewilderment, some incredulity and if we are honest, some fear for the future. Only incurable optimists will be confident all will be well.

The year starts interestingly with a very unusual January, as this is an exceptional “blue moon” month. The phrase “once in a blue moon” which basically means “rarely”, derives from the unusual event of a full Moon occurring twice in one month, and this month is such a month, with the significant added rarity of the second one being a total lunar eclipse. The first standard full Moon is on the 2nd at 2.24 GMT at 11 degrees of Cancer and the second one, the special Total Lunar eclipse, is on the 31st at 13.30 GMT, at 11degrees of Leo.

 If one has a personal natal planet at the same degree as the full Moon, or at the opposite degree, (same degree in the opposite sign) it is likely to impact you personally, more powerfully than others.

Full moons bring a tendency for the eruption of the unconscious and there is a mood of rather untamed events, which will out, and the unpredictable and primeval is in the air as are culminations and endings. Things rise to the surface. Tides are high as are inner tensions. We reap consequences on the full Moon. When the full Moon is also manifesting as a total lunar eclipse, we can expect the same effect, but as if on steroids.

The new Moon falls on the 17th at 26 degrees of Capricorn, a benign influence, where we sow and prepare new beginnings.

Saturn now firmly into his own home sign of Capricorn (since December 20th and for 2 and a half years) points to the principle that it is not money that is the root of all evil, but the love of it (greed) that earns that crown and which holds huge power currently. The great economic divisions and inequality in our global society will be a source of ever increasing karma, as pursuit of monetary power and its fallout for further inequalities becomes truly the driving mover and shaker of the globe and its woes. The power of money has in many ways on the globe trumped democracy. Large egos and authoritarian leaders, who see themselves as emperors, in many respects are increasingly the trend.  Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy and (temporarily) for the middle classes will underscore the inequalities. Trickle down economics, (i.e. the theory that the wealthy will invest for the betterment of the poor) has proved with Pluto (power/obsession) in Capricorn since 2007/8 to be a wishful thinking fantasy. Plutocratic wealth dominates.

Capitalism was originally based on the protestant (Calvinism) work ethic, which was designed for the good and benefit of all (trickle down). That has long been largely lost, as the uber capitalist ethic has very visibly prevailed, especially over the last 10 years.

However because Saturn (in Capricorn) is the lord of karma, and Pluto’s sign position (also in Capricorn since 2008 and till 2025) suggests that abuse of power pays a big price. We are facing a rather significant nemesis, even a meltdown, re our value system and a full on facing of the fallout of our, (or the system’s) economic abuse of power and the drive of materialism, consumerism and the seemingly unquestioned holy grail of “growth”.  The planet/environment itself is as much the messenger of this karma as anything else. It is already groaning loudly in our face, in ways there is no necessity to elucidate.

Neptune in Pisces now (from 2012 till 2026) is however simultaneously shouting out at us to focus on the planets survival, both ecologically and of course climate wise, or all is lost. Without a sustainable planet and ecosystem there is no sustainability for humanity. We can put some faith in technology to help save the day, especially from 2025, when Pluto (power) moves into Aquarius (technology… but there are concomitant dangers then too, of abuse of power re technology) but we also have to change our collective behaviour, not just compensate for it.

This issue is existential, even biblical in its implications, like never before, because we know what we are doing, but it really is an “inconvenient truth”, so therefore deniable to many of those whose total focus is on money and growth.

This month is quite intense. It is after all, also the month of Capricorn, so all pressure is on, re value systems.

Because the Sun and Venus both conjunct Pluto on the 9th and 10th and on the 24th/25th, Mercury also conjuncts Pluto, they will be significant dates, that point to potential crisis and abuse of power in some context. Egos are highlighted. Danger and brinkmanship dominate.

Mars is also now in Pluto ruled Scorpio, (since December 10th till Jan 26th). This is a powerful position and brings a ruthless energy and often determination of a single-minded nature to achieve power, for good or ill. This position is also very linked to sexuality (and money).  Because Scorpio is very forensic in nature, as a sign, revelations re sexual abuse and financial scandals have been to the fore. The principal of power and sex is intense when Mars is in Scorpio and with Jupiter also now in Scorpio for a year, these will be a predominant issue.

Another major astrological fact for this year is that in May, Uranus moves from Aries, (where he has been for 7 years) to Taurus (the sign of his fall, as the planet of Uranus and the sign of Taurus are incompatible energies). He stays there initially for 6 months, then reverts back to Aries, to rubber-stamp a few issues no doubt, and then returns to Taurus for the long approximately 7year haul, in March 2019.

 In Aries (the individual), Uranus (unpredictable change/technology/revolution) indeed revolutionised individual’s power via technology/social media and created “surprise” unpredictability and rebellion (anti establishment mood) and a desire for independence and brought a change in peoples voting motivation, aided and abetted of course by technology.

Taurus is about feeling and instinct, safety and security/money (earth) while Uranus (air) is about the power of mind, the new and revolutionary, and takes risks and wants liberty, and change, often for its own sake.  He is about the future, rebellion and the innovative, not least in technology. He can create chaos.

Uranus in Taurus means therefore that we can expect a revolution in the way we deal with money especially because of new technology and digitisation. . From Taurus the focus for change will be in what constitutes security and our material values that will be subject to revolution, and it will bring to many a feeling of much insecurity as the old security systems simply break down. Unpredictable and game changing shifts in the economy and how money works is pretty well guaranteed.

The great US depression, the fallout of the Wall Street crash, and the dropping of the gold standard, correlated with the last time Uranus was in Taurus (1934-1941), healed incidentally only by the advent of World War 2.

Back to this month, Mr Trump has got Mars conjuncting his natal IC and squaring its own natal place and his natal ascendant, all between the 19th and the 27th. He will likely to be angry, impulsive, and dangerously confrontational then, not least in relation to foreign policy and legal issues that may directly affect him and family.

Fortunately Mars globally, currently is not in conflict with other planets, and is even very constructive between the 8th and 10th.

However between the 5th-8th when Mars conjuncts Jupiter, (crusading determination) there is a great confidence and a go getting energy in a pioneering and zealous way, amongst powerful players on the world stage, that can tempt bold moves that need squeaky clean motives, or over reaching can have troublesome consequences.

The 12th-15th sees the Sun and Venus square to Uranus. The unpredictable is in the air then, including potential geophysical events (earthquakes, volcanic disturbance etc)

Theresa May has a difficult period in the second half of the month, courtesy of Mars, and the whole Brexit issue will rumble on with ever more complications thrown up, till exhaustion will take over for her in February.  Her position looks very shaky then, but With Venus (and possibly her Moon.. no birth time known) conjunct Pluto in her birth chart, she is however steely in her determination to maintain power and not be defeated. If she survives February and March politically, the last 3 months of 2018 will probably see her power radically undermined in some way.

Nationalism and protectionism is an instinct that feels safe and redemptive and is becoming an increasingly strong tribal drive in the face of and in reaction to what is seen as the downside of globalisation, but it carries the real danger now of a breakdown in global cooperation, when never before have we needed it so much, in order to cope with the huge issues on every level that face us/the planet… Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces will bring to us all over the coming decade, the message that we need to start again somehow and to totally reconsider our prevailing economic value system which is largely redundant and self-defeating. A necessary total economic and political breakdown may be, just maybe, the only way that can happen…

There are however potential phoenixes out of the ashes.

The good news is that Jupiter sextiles Pluto this month, exactly in the second half of the month, which augurs well for constructive determination for renewal and regeneration with the collective power to achieve. All that matters is the motive.


Keep on your toes career wise.  It’s a good period, but avoid over-confidence. 

Indeed, all after the 11th need to be sure that their communications are clear ,as there is a lot of room for misunderstanding.

Before the 18th, if born after March 28th, your charms in the workplace are significant.  Don’t misuse them. 

After the 18th, if born up to April 7th, friendships provide love, support and harmony and fun and love is in the air. 

After the 26th, for all born up to March 24th, there is a surge of energy that is very constructive.  It is very positive for internationalism, the law and academic studies.  Your ruling planet is baptising you with courage and strength.

Saturn, now established in Capricorn, is currently squaring the Suns of those early Aries, born up to March 26th.  Some restrictions and difficulties are in the air.  This is short lived. Be mature. Step up to the plate.  Face facts and get rest.

Uranus is still directly emphasising the principle of change, restlessness and potential liberation if born April 13th to 15th.   This is gone by March.  Look back on the last year and acknowledge the changes. 

If born April 7th to 10th, Pluto is still on your case, as he has been most of last year and indeed will be this year.  Inner struggles need to be conscious.  Power struggles at work need to be carefully thought through, controlled and do not let your active anger get the better of you.  Draw boundaries.  Veto others’ behaviour and yours, if it is in any way coercive or controlling.


Long distance and legal issues are flagged up and indeed after the 11th, all of you may find that communications, learning, study and travel are all agreeable and constructive. 

Before the 18th, you are also likely to encounter the harmonious and the love in long distance contacts and study will give you joy.

After the 18th, if born up to May 10th, don’t overdo charm to get your own way. 

Before the 26th, if born after May 4th, Mars in your 7th house is creating some potential war-drums in your social life and in your relationships.  Others are immovable and challenging.  Do not match with equal stubbornness, but know to draw boundaries.

However, Jupiter is enhancing the lives of those born May 6th to 13th.  Fun, expansion, optimism and potential travel is yours, but be careful about over confidence and over-trusting in others who may encourage extravagant behaviour.  Be your own master.

Saturn, now in Capricorn, is constructive in a very practical and mature way for those born up to April 26th.  Duty and obligation connected to travel or study is strong but it is all very practical and giving you a good foundation.  Discipline and hard work comes easily. 

Neptune is still continuing to inspire on a spiritual, creative and emotional level all born May 1st to 4th.  This yearlong influence has softened you for more empathy and more emotional vulnerability. It brings a very inspiring dimension.

Finally Pluto is bringing for those born May 8th to 11th, in this very rare positive transit, a sense of courage, insight, destiny, power and self-reinvention.  Not least in relationships.  This is regenerative and transformative.  Enjoy.  It is yours for the next year.


You may have no choice but need to accept that everything is quite profound this month  and complex financial issues need focus, probably in a good way.

Before the 11th, all born after June 7th will have excellent communications skills and news and discussions with others will be fruitful, enhancing and your input is valuable.

After the 18th, all born up to June 8th are also likely to be experiencing happiness and emotional fulfilment in a long distance context and working hard on an academic or a study issue will bring joy.  Love, travel and study can all combine. 

Mars, however, for those born up to May 26th will, at the end of the month, in the last six days, bring some confrontations with others.  People may block your path and you may be easily irritated.  Stop and think before you react.

For those born June 14th-16th, Uranus is in his last lap of providing some inner inspiration that has been going on for nearly eighteen months.  This journey is coming to a close, but it has brought inspiration from others too.  Awakening you to ideological views, more humanitarian concerns, friendships that have provided catalysts and an ability to work for the greater good.  You are looking more outside the box more than you were two years ago.

However, Neptune has been a little confusing for about a yearor many born June 1st to 4th.  There has been some vague smoke and mirror input, possibly professionally.  You have possibly been vulnerable to other people who have not been as straight as they could be and you have certainly needed to be straight yourself.  Confusion and uncertainly and a sense of some lack of security has been in the air and it’s possible you have been over-idealistic about something, but it has inspired you creatively and brought your heart centre into strong focus.  Greater clarity will emerge in a month or so.


Relationships are a focus. After the 11th, all of you may find that the power of communications extremely helpful and gratifying.

Before the 18th, if born after June 30th, romance, affections are underlined and your ability to attract others with charm and a good heart is notable.  This is reciprocated.

Before the 26th, all born after July 6th will find that your desires and your passions are inspired both in the arts and in love life.  Energy is productive and creative, psychologically, physically, spiritually is constructive and needs to be taken advantage of.

Jupiter also is very much supportive of those born July 8th to 15th.  He is enhancing creativity, love life, fertility in all contexts and bringing fun, enjoyment, optimism and positivity and growth. It is also very pleasant for travel, combined with Romance.

However, Saturn is in the opposite sign to yours now and will be for two and a half years and in this month he is directly opposing those born June 23rd to 27th.  Some potential conflict or reality check about a relationship is in the air.  There is a sense of challenge and a need to face facts about somebody.  Obligations and duties are also underlined.  Know what is reasonable and what isn’t. Delays and blocks are there to make you re-think issues and people. 

Uranus is coming to the end of a long period of creating some disruption and uncertainty and insecurity in the lives of those born July 16th to 18th, particularly in terms of your status in life.  This is gone by March and security will be more tangible.  In the meantime know you have been on a journey, although uncomfortable, that has probably kick-started you into a more valid future.

Also Neptune, again in a rare transit, has been inspiring those born July 2nd to 5th.  He has brought inspiration, creatively, spiritually and through travel.  Your heart is even bigger than it was before. 

Finally Pluto, in his once every 248 year opposition to your Sun is still bringing for those born July 10th to 13th.  Some feeling of a power struggle is still lingering.  Be conscious.  Don’t sink to dark motives and draw boundaries around those who would.

The 1st full Moon in the month is on the 2nd in your sign and effects those born around July 3rd/4th.  Issues are brought to a head… and it can act as a clearinghouse.


The work ethic needs underlining this month and sorting out a lot of unresolved issues.

However, before the 11th, if born after August 9th, creativity and enjoyment is on the cards. Communications with offspring and love life will be important, but make time for work too. 

After the 18th, if born up to August 10th, romance is flagged up.  Your charms are undoubted and you can attract favours from others, as well as affections. 

However, before the 26th, if born after August 6th, there are some people on the family front who may be challenging and disruptive and your stubbornness or strong will can create domestic conflict. Others are no pushovers.

However, after the 26th, if born up to July 28th, your desire for play, pleasure and enjoyment is strong and your will is constructive and confident.

Jupiter, now in Scorpio is, this month, a mixed blessing for those born August 8th to 15th.  He is bringing self-indulgence, over-confidence, over-optimism and possibly over-reaching.  Good times can be had, but only if there is measured moderation and humility.  Avoid a sense of entitlement.  

Uranus is in the last ditch of his once every 42-year inspiration to those born August 16th to 18th.  He has brought a sense of awakening and enlightening from long distance issues and in academic study.  He has awoken you from your subjectivity and are now taking a more objective viewpoint.  The bigger picture matters more to you now than it did and you are to some extent more liberated as a result.

The total Lunar eclipse on the 31st impacts those born around August 4th. For this group there is a real possibility of significant events that are aligned to a need to face up to issues that are shouting out for attention.


Make time for leisure, pleasure and love life this month.

After the 11th, all of you will find that communications with both partners, romantically or otherwise, and with children are very beneficial.  

Indeed, before the 18th, all born after August 31st will find affection and love life comes easily, as indeed does creative skill. 

Before the 26th, for all born after September 6th, there will be a sense of power of communication and insight that will be advantageous.  Your actions, your thinking and your attitude will be constructive.  

However, after the 26th, if born up to August 29th, tread carefully on the home front.  Family may be quick to be irritable and you may seem a little bit like a bull in a china shop to others.

Jupiter in Scorpio is beneficial now to those born September 8th to 15th.  He is bringing extra wisdom, good communications and news from siblings and a sense of insight and luck and confidence is yours. 

Even Saturn, now in Capricorn, is providing pragmatic progress for those born up to August 29th.    Serious, responsible attitudes are needed and evident..  Loyalty and maturity of approach to love life, children’s issues and speculative issues will give you long-term advantage.  Hard work comes easily.

Neptune, still opposing the Suns of those born September 3rd to 6th, is coming to a close in his influence by March.  This rare and long-felt feeling of uncertainty and confusion from others and over-idealisation of others and a need to be black and white about all things has taught you some lessons, but it has also inspired you creatively and your heart has been opened, if not a little vulnerable.

Finally, Pluto is continuing in his rare trine to your Sun to empower those born September 10th to 13th.  He is giving you courage, determination and destiny in love life and creativity and not least possibly around offspring.


Focus on family and real estate and home issues is important.

Before the 11th, all born after October 10th will find that your communications and your insights and wisdom are to the point and work for you.

After the 11th, you will all need to ensure that your communications are crystal clear and there is potential for confusion. 

After the 18th, all born up to October 11th can enjoy leisure, pleasure, indulgence and love life.  Relax and enjoy.

After the 26th, if born up to September 28th you are no pushover and your usual self-surrender will be replaced by more constructive self-assertion. 

Saturn in Capricorn now is in square relationship to your sign and this month those affected are born up to September 29th.  Some family issues may be showing their face.  Lack of confidence, blocks, restrictions, and frustrations are possible.  Reality checks and some learning curves are in the air.  Step up to the plate and also remember that no one is getting younger, including you.

Uranus is nearly finished with his eighteen month long visitation to oppose the Suns of those October 17th to 19th.  Disruptions brought into your life by other people’s unexpected change of attitude or stance continues until February, but ironically their unpredictability can be your liberation.

Finally, those born October 11th to 14th are still dealing with the power of Pluto. The need for liberation to find your own unique power and destiny is strong, but it may involve some struggles within self and with others.  Just keep aware, conscious and controlled, but do not repress this need for change.


Your mind is sharp this month and alert and indeed after the 11th, all of you will be even more insightful than usual. 

Before the 18th, if born after October 31st, your charms combine with your intellect to make you very persuasive of others.

After the 18th, if born up to November 10th, there is a tendency for over-indulgence, over-reaching and over-spending.  Have a care.

Mars is now seriously in your sign, directly by conjunction, impacting those born after November 6th.  For this group, you will all be extra assertive, extra powerful. Extra wilful, extra determined, extra energetic.  Use it positively.  Do not let it tip into hostility or control.

Jupiter however, in your sign, will also be benefiting many of the same group, born November 8th to 15th.  Luck, confidence and determination is yours.  Expansiveness and travel is flagged up, but beware over-confidence and do let an over-zealous nature and urge get you carried away.

Saturn is giving some steadying of the boat for those born October 24th - October 29th He is bringing common sense, steadfastness, loyalty and hard work, constructively so. 

Neptune is finalising his inspiring eighteen-month period for those born November 3rd to 6th.  Your creative side continues to flourish.  Your empathy and compassion is now being cemented.  You’re sensitivity, idealism and spirituality has also been and continues to be a real focus.

Finally, those born November 10th to 13th have your ruler Pluto still enforcing the power of your Scorpionic insight, depth, profundity of mind and desire for the truth, all in a very positive way.  A sense of destiny is well established now.


Finances may need some focus in a good way this month.

Before the 11th all born after December 8th will find that your communication skills and your wisdom will be beneficial in all areas. 

After the 18th, if born up to December 9th, your heart and your mind combine effectively to persuade other people to back your goals and desires and ideas.  Your charms are strong.

After the 26th, Mars moves into your sign, initially affecting this month all born up to November 27th.  For this small group, those last few days of the month will see you assertive, determined, focused and disciplined; and possibly even a little on the coercive side.  Keep it constructive.

For all born December 15th to 17th, you are coming to the end of a long period of Uranus enhancing your spirit, need for freedom and individuality.  Since June of last year, this has been effective.  It has brought an awakening; an enlightening and opportunities connected to love life, creative work and offspring issues.  It has awoken you to so much more about yourself and life.  Celebrate this journey as it comes to a close.  You are now more uniquely true to self. 

However, Neptune is also coming to the end of a long period  (started in April 2016) of causing some confusion and uncertainty in the lives of those born December 2nd to 5th.   There has been a feeling of dissolving of certainty about many issues in life.  Not least domestically, career wise and general insecurity.  The fact is the old is dissolving and is meant to and this journey has been a rather blind one, but will take you to a place where you can be more true to yourself and who you are.  It is redemptive.  Trust.  By next year clarity will be established.


Your month, so you can shine and indeed after the 11th, you will all find the power of your intellect and your communication skills enhanced. 

Before the 18th, if born after December 29, your charms and your ability to attract affections is also accentuated.  You give and receive. 

Before the 26th, for all born after January 4th, your power to be a leader and to have people who are constructive in helping you and also you helping them, all add to your ability to make progress in life and to contribute to the greater social good.

Jupiter is also very much your friend now if born January 6th to 13th.  Again, your social life and your contacts  are filling you with benevolence and your ability to be incredibly effective for others should not be underestimated.  Luck, opportunities and protection and growth is in the air, as is travel.

Saturn however entered your sign last month.  He is your ruler, so he is a powerful influence, but you handle Saturn better than most.  Those most affected by his conjunction this month are born up to December 27th.  Look after your health and take it easy. He is the lord of time and age.  You can feel tired quite readily and reality checks are in the air.  Hard work, focus, discipline and maturity are needed.  Don’t let under-confidence be your worst enemy and your usual one, get the better of you. This can be a time to rise to the occasion.

Uranus is about to finish his rather disruptive journey over the last 18 months for those born January 13th to 15th, particularly on a domestic level.  The calm after the waves is approaching early next month, but you have been awoken.

Neptune also has nearly finished his journey of inspiring those born January 1st to 4th.  Your sensitivity, your heart centre, your creative and spiritual self has been matured over the last year or so.

Finally, those born January 8th to 11th are still dealing with the power of Pluto in his once every 248-year visitation to your sign.  You are still being transformed, regenerated, re-invented and are confronting certain destinies.  This can be magnificent, but endings of chapters and new ones being born, are in the air.
The new Moon is in your sign on the 17th affecting those born around that date.
This augurs well then for the initiation of the new and for a sense of building a new chapter.


Some privacy of thoughts and contemplation is yours this month.

Before the 11th, if born after February 5th, valuable communications with friends and in groups are to be savoured.

After the 18th, all born up to February 6th will enjoy a boost to your sense of physical charms and you will attract and give love and affection.  Popularity is yours. 

Before the 26th Mars is in square position to the Suns of those born after February 2nd transiting your solar 10th house.
For this group there is a distinct need to be wary of over competitiveness and ruthless ness at work or in pulling rank and that can come from self or others. Impatience is yours and so is impulsiveness and possibly a refusal to compromise.. Watch out for these qualities, as they can be troublesome.

After the 26th, for all born up to January 24th, leadership skills are strong, competitive skills are well placed and your energies are constructive and admirable. 

Jupiter in Scorpio in square to your sign is now affecting those born February 4th to 11th.  This is a mixed blessing.  It gives you desire for enjoyment and confidence and assertion, but it can make one over-confident, or even a little arrogant, so be careful about pushing your luck, particularly on the professional front. 

Uranus, your ruler, is finalising his long, once every 42 year sextile, which is very positive to your Sun, if born February 12th to 14th.  This has brought even more big picture understanding, awareness, lateral thinking and passion about the human condition in a very constructive way to your consciousness.  Your intuition is sound and insight invaluable.  Job nearly done.

The fact that the total solar eclipse this month is in your opposite sign of Leo on the 31st at 11 degrees, it is likely that those born around January 31st- Feb.1st will feel its impact on the 31st.
This may manifest as quite a powerful feeling that someone or something is necessitating you to reassess some situation quite profoundly.


Friendship, goals, group concerns are strong this month.

Before the 11th, if born after March 7th, ensure, particularly in work, that you are clearly understood.  Misunderstandings are in the air.

After the 11th, however, you will all benefit from good learning and communication with friends and in social life.

Before the 26th, for all born after March 4th, international issues, whether it be travel or communications, are very favoured and very dynamic.  Study too brings enthusiasm as a constructive progress.

After the 26th, early Pisces, born up to February 25th need a little caution about being impulsive or impatient on the work front; and indeed others may be a little difficult. 

Jupiter is very much your friend now from Scorpio if born March 6th to 13th.  Wonderful for travel or planning a holiday, and  very good for benefits in terms of academic interests or study and brilliant for extra wisdom and understanding on a metaphysical level. Luck and progress is yours. 

Saturn is also constructive for those Pisces born up to February 24th.  Your mind is grounded and realistic and pragmatic and discipline is yours.  Enjoy.

Neptune, your ruling planet is bringing out the ultimate of Pisces traits and has been for over a year, for those born March 1st to 14th.  This journey is nearly over, but he has completed a period of potential great inspiration, great empathy, great spirituality and psychic powers, or the possibility, more negatively, of over idealism, escapism, or deceptive circumstances.  The arts, however will have flourished within your life and commitment to the natural world. 

Finally Pluto has been empowering for some time and will continue to do so for the next year, the lives of those born March 8th to 11th.  Enjoy this journey.  It has brought you powerful, important contacts and you have been transformative and healing for others and others for you.  It has brought you courage, destiny, insight and power that need to be used wisely.  Not for you alone, but for the whole world is it called for..
