Tuesday, 1 November 2016


The US elections obviously dominate the month and I will stick my neck out and say that on balance, despite the email crisis,  after the election, when results are announced, Hilary Clinton’s chart does look marginally better than Donald Trumps …  Unfortunately we are not sure of the time of Clinton’s birth, but according to the two different times of birth been given by her at various times, she either has Scorpio rising (double Scorpio) or has Gemini rising. However, we do know Trump’s time of birth (Leo rising, no surprise there) but never the less, Clinton looks like she is relatively the happier of the two at the time of the election result.. (Unless she feels happy that she is let off the hook of the responsibilities of office!)

The USA chart does not look so hugely shook up at the result either, so that could be indicative of her win too, as a Trump triumph would certainly point to some fundamental changes and uncertainties in the air. However no matter who wins, there will be a new mood of general discontent that will not go away.  Late next month and early Jan 2017 will bring much anger and disappointment re the economy, which will haunt the States through 2017.. Its reputation and standing in the world will take a probable hit, no matter who is president.
The world is in very shaky waters… and a new nationalism is very much in the air and the desire for self-determination and change is rather commensurate with Ceres currently in Aries and conjunct to Uranus in Aries (rebellion of the people against the establishment)

From next month, the world will find itself with some serious and growing economic problems to say the least and capitalism as we know it, is going to be in the dock, as Pluto continues his journey into the last half of Capricorn. China and the USA will be facing crises over the next few years re the economy and England will be in turmoil over Brexit as Uranus (instability and chaos) continues to passes over its ascendant and Pluto conjuncts its Mercury (death of a certain status economically).  Also Saturn will be squaring its own place in the England chart this month. This will bring many challenges to its status and a very necessary review of events. Theresa Mays chart looks troubled late this month /early December as she struggles to make headway with Brexit. It will not go her way ..(We do not have her time of birth).

 Mars (planet of war) in Aquarius (future/technology) this month from the 9thpoints to the dangers of cyber warfare and increasing awareness of its potential in the future

When Pluto moves into Aquarius in 2025, staying there for nearly 20 years, then we will really have a serious potential of abuse of technology, both as a weapon and in terms of its potential domination of our society to the detriment of the human condition.  Positively (there is always a healing potential with Pluto) it could also be used to address and solve some of the biggest challenges of our time through the power of technological advance. 
With Pluto it does tend to be a case of “saint or sinner”.

The full Moon falls on the 14th at 13.52 GMT and the new Moon falls on the 29th at 12.18 GMT. The new moon correlates with a fresh chapter being initiated; hence we traditionally sow on the new, whilst the full Moon indicates a reaping of energies and the need to acknowledge a finalisation of some sort.


No room for superficiality this month.  It’s about serious stuff in terms of complex financial issues and intimate dealings with others at an emotional level.  

Before the 12th, if born after April 5th, travel is very pleasurable and romance can be linked.  A love of learning is also indicated, but be wary, after the 12th, if born up to April 11th, of relying too much on charm with sycophancy in your work.  

Also, before the 9th, if born after April 12th, there is a danger with Mars square to your Sun of aggressive competition and impatience with colleagues in the work context.  There are pushy people around and that can include you. 

After the 9th, however, for all born up to April 4th, intelligence and structured dealings with others can bring progress in your goal and in group projects.  Your wisdom and energy combine successfully. 
Jupiter is now, as he moves through Libra, opposing the Suns of those born April 3rd to 7th.  For the group, relationships are flourishing, but there can be a danger of over-expectation of other, or even being over-influenced by others who you see as the answers to your problems; but luck is around in relationships, provided you are cautious and don’t take for granted.  

People from other cultures, wise people and people who can definitely bring rays of light into your life are in the ethos.  

Saturn is a very maturing influence in a very constructive and practical way for those born April 3rd to 8th.  He is bringing a certain amount of duty and obligation into your life and having to step up to the plate, but the practical consequences are to your benefit in the long run; particularly to do with legal or overseas issues and obligatory travel; and also in terms of study.  

Uranus still marching through your sign in erratic manner is continuing to create some chaos in the psyche of those born April 9th to 12th; and will be until around March/April 2017.  Change is coming and you cannot avoid it.   You have to be flexible.  You have to see your life as a journey now, rather than an arrival.  Positively it is awakening you, enlightening you, making you more authentically true to yourself, independent, maybe even rebellious, but you cannot stay as you were.  Just don’t be too impulsive.  Let change take you rather than you push change.  Your value systems are also changing and you are awakening to new truths. 
Pluto, by contrast, is once more, for his final chapter, haunting the lives of those born April 4th to 6th.  You are in the middle of a personal power struggle between the old and the new; and the past and the future.  You need to assert yourself to know who you are with a sense of destiny in mind, without being controlling or coercive.  Transformation can happen without too much crisis, if you handle this time well.  


Relationships are powerful movers and shakers in your life this month; and others can shine a light into your existence, not least through good communication. 

After the 12th, if born up to May 13th, a love of learning is indicated and harmony surrounds you in travel and your kindness and wisdom is underlined. 

Mars is a very constructive force from Capricorn now, for those born after May 13th, where before the 9th he will be giving real drive to your beliefs, to your ideologies and a purpose to your energies, which spell success.  Constructive assertiveness is yours in all you do and others will admire that. 

However, if after the 9th, if born up to May 6th, be wary of being overly pushy, bossy with others in your professional context and also be aware that there are those too who will fight back or challenge you in some way.  Have patience and don’t be too impulsive.
Neptune, direct on the 20th of this month, is now definitely harmonising the Suns of those born around April 28th to 30th.   He is making you emotional, sensitive, creative, empathetic and compassionate.  The proximity of the ocean is healing and working for a good cause, that you really believe in, that moves your heart for others, can be very rewarding and heart fulfilling. 

Meanwhile, those born May 5th to 7th are feeling the power of Capricorn yielding you to believe in self or your destiny and to enjoy empowerment through wisdom, through your beliefs and through influences at a long distance.  You are given self-reinventive and courageous qualities that carry you forward on your true path.
The full Moon falls in your sign on the 14th affecting strongly those born around May 13th. Be aware of the power of your unconscious and repressed feelings/energies at that time as they are in eruptive mode, which can equate to endings of chapters that may in fact be possibly overdue.


Everyday routine and work issues will dominate and it is time to rationalise usefully many things in your organisation to make life easier and more constructively successful.

 Before the 12th, Venus in your opposite sign, will bring for those after June 6th an opportunity for love life to flourish, to meet new potential partners and to, at the very least, enjoy a happy, loving and affectionate time with others.  

After the 9th, if born before 7th June , much energy can be put into academic, constructive progress and travel and focus can be very much long distance in a constructive way.  Energy is driven and positive. 
Jupiter is smiling kindly on those born June 1st to 8th.  This every six year trine brings fertility, fun, sociability, a little bit of risky adventure and creativity is also enjoyed and successful.  Romantic good times are flagged up, as are benefits through offspring. 

However, by contrast, if born June 4th to 9th, Saturn is also on your case.  He is demanding his pound of flesh through others who are blocking your path to some extent or demanding a very mature and grown up response to a challenge in a relationship issue.  Also important to look after your health and to get rest; and to honour obligations to others where they need honouring. 

So rather bitter sweet for those born June 4th to 8th, but the cavalry is definitely going to help you with any challenges. 

Uranus brings a bit of excitement and adventure for the innovative into the lives of those born June 10th to 13th.  Friends can be catalysts for exciting change and insights and you can bring encouraging awareness and progress into any collective goal.

Important to remember however, that if born around May 30th to June 1st, Neptune is not exactly encouraging clarity in your career or status context and there may even be a bit of discontent about the work that you are doing as you long for something that suits your heart centre.  Check out small print and make sure you understand all communications and avoid deceptive circumstances and check out the credentials of all in your working environment whenever you can.


Enjoyment and celebration of life is strong now for Cancerians.  Love life can also get a boost.
After the 12th, when Venus moves into your opposite sign, certainly all born up to July 14th will have opportunity to really show affections and warmth to others and others are reciprocating. Love life is highlighted.

Before the 9th, for all born after July 15th, be aware that people will be no pushovers in your life and very assertive energies are around.  You will be meeting people head on and they will reciprocate.  This can be positive with compromise, but it could also lead to some confrontation, so have a care. 

If born July 2nd to 9th, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun, which lends itself to a tendency towards self-indulgence and over-confidence.  Over-generosity to others, connected to home and family is also a possibility.  Enjoy, but do have some caution and humility. 

Uranus is continuing to cause some sense of uncertainly and some chaos in the lives of those born July 11th to 14th.  Your restlessness at work is shown and this period will not be completed for your understanding until spring of next year.  Whether others are shaking the tree, or whether you are feeling uncertain about career direction, it is a time of realising that there is only two certainties in life; and one of them is change.  Whether that be internally or externally, just be wary of rushing into change for its own sake.  When it comes, embrace it as an opportunity for an awakening.  

Neptune is truly inspiring now for those born June 30th to July 2nd.  Other countries and other cultures call and there is a great need for a more spiritual dimension in life.  Great appreciation of the arts, nature, and spiritual pursuits is strong.  Extra sensitivity to self and others enhances your persona.  Music, film and being near the sea can all be healing to your soul.   Idealism is also in the air. 

By contrast, if born July 6th to 8th, Pluto now opposing your Sun, as he has been on and off since early 2015, is in his last chapter of challenge.  This is a time when you will have your situation and your very psyche, being somehow confronted by a power struggle with forces or a force, which has been quite uncompromising.  Issues are coming to a close by the end of the year, but this has been a time of much heart and soul searching and need for courage to draw boundaries around others where their behaviour has been unacceptable; and to acknowledge that sometimes we have to go through the dark in order to get to the light.  The depths of your soul may have felt challenged and the most important thing is that your conscience is clear and your motive is pure, but endings of chapters are probably necessary and part of destiny.  Beyond this there is a new strength and ultimately a self-reinvention.  


Many of you may need to focus on domestic issues this month, notably clarifying communications.
After the 12th, all born up to August 18th will be able also to enhance romantic relationships and relationships with offspring through intelligent and full communication.  

 For all those born after August 8th, with Venus in your Solar 5th House until the 12th, may find enjoyment of life, pleasure, the party spirit and romance all underlined very positively. 

 From the 9th, also, all born up to August 8th, may find that there are some people in your orbit who are a little less than conciliatory.  Assertive relationships and exchanges are on the cards.  You won’t get away with things so easily in all your dealings with others.  Compromise will be needed. 

Jupiter is a definite ray of light now for those born August 3rd to 10th.  He is bringing a note of optimism and positivity to your thinking as well as extra wisdom.  Travel too is favoured.  

 Even Saturn is constructive to those born August 6th to 11th.  He is bringing maturity, purposeful action, pragmatism and constructive progress, even in the challenging areas of life.  Seriousness and a loyalty is demonstrated in both romantic issues and connected to offspring issues.

Uranus is a particularly exciting influence now on those born August 12th to 15th.  This has been in the ether for a while and is not complete until March 2017.  New opportunities, new insights and new awakenings have been and continue to be in the air; notably connected to philosophical issues, spiritual issues and long distance issues.  Travel is illuminating and innovative and relationship may be linked to any of these new dimensions in your life, in a very positive manner. Ego is down graded on the altar of greater insight and wisdom.

Shrewd thinking is your gift this month and notably before the 12th if born after September 3rd.  Excellent communications benefit you. 

Before the 12th, all born after September 9th will find a lot of love and happiness and self-indulgence being flagged up on the home and domestic front.  Just one danger, some excess may be in the air.
However, after the 12th if born up to September 15th, enjoyment of life increases as does sociability and romantic potential.  Fertility is also highlighted.  

Before the 9th, if born after September 15th, a lot of a typical courage and determination and boldness is indicated when it comes to social life, romantic issues and speculative adventures, all of which is constructive and well directed.

 Saturn is less kindly disposed towards the sign of Virgo currently.  Notably, this month, if born between September 6th and the 11th, there may be a feeling of tiredness and some sense of being a little over-whelmed by life’s blocks and restrictions.  Take care of the body.  Reality checks and karmic events are possible, notably connected to real estate, home and family issues.  Be patient and disciplined.  This time will soon pass.  Learn from it. 

Neptune is still opposing the Suns of those born September 1st to 3rd, in this once every 165-year visitation.  This rare transit has been around since May 2015 and now it’s coming to its final destination and will leave you by February 2017.  Meanwhile, many you have felt a very strong sense of smoke and mirrors being around your life, particularly relating to others and relationships in any context.  You have idealistic, possibly projecting fantasies onto others and you have needed and continue to need to check the small print in all negotiations and in the calibre of all people.   Not least being realistic in your expectations of others.

Very positively, all born September 7th to 10th are dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s of the Pluto support of your Sun which happens every 124 years aprox.; and which has been around since March 2015; and is now ensuring that transformation, change, personal empowerment and indeed confidence in your own personal destiny is assured.  


Finances need attention.  Good communications about these will help.
After the 12th, if born up to October 20th, others will respect your general wisdom.  You get heard. 
Before the 12th, if born after October 9th, your charms are a great asset when communicating and your creative abilities are underlined.  There is also a sense of harmony.  

After the 12th, if born up to October 16th, your penchant for diplomacy will be most useful at home and with family. 

There is a bit of a warning before the 9th for those born after October 16th, that you could be dealing with family issues where these is some confrontation and your own energy may seems to others a little bit like a bull in a china shop, or more to the point you may feel that others have that quality.  Anger issues are likely to manifest on the family and domestic front, so count to ten. 

However after the 9th, if born up to October 10th, Mars in your Solar 5th house suggests great energy and courage put not only into creative issues, but also into living life to the full and you are not likely to want to take no for an answer in romantic pursuits.
Jupiter happily  in your sign now is exactly conjuncting in his once every twelve year visitation the Suns of those born October 4th to 12th.  For this group there is a period of confidence, positively, growth, inner and outer; and the potential for extra charisma and travel.  Wisdom abounds.  Luck is in the air.

Even for those born October 7th to 12th, Saturn although a restraining force, brings wisdom, caution, constructive understanding and practical progress; and not least loyalty and determination. 

However, in the background, Uranus is still creating some second-guessing in relationships for those born October 13th to 16th.  Others are catalysts for changing your life, whether that is comfortable or not.  See this as an adventure and a bit of a destiny journey to another awareness in relationship issues. 

Those born around October 8th to 10th are still grappling with Pluto after several years.  This really is in its final stage.  A new sense of independence is coming as you recognise the end of an era in which you have been honed, through some stress, into a stronger person.  


This is your birthday period and a tine for shining and for consolidation of your individuality.

After the 12th, for all born up to November 14th there is an injection of personal charm and diplomacy skills.
Before the 9th, all born after November 14th, intelligent determination becomes very successful and your ability to effectively argue your case and move forward is noted; and dynamic action pays off.
However, be wary, after the 9th, if born up to November 8th, as there may be some war drums around on the home front.  Others may match your wilfulness and fixity is in the air.  Compromise may have to be dredged up… as Mars is seriously at work as a challenging agent.

Neptune is still emphasising increased sensitivity, empathy, creativity and increased emotions if born from November 1st to 3rd.  This has been affecting you for some time.  Idealism has been strong, whether it be in love life or in aesthetics, but a gentle approach to others has been evident.  Normally this makes people less materialistic and less egotistical as well. 

Pluto, your powerful ruler, is at the end of a long two-year transit, very positively regenerating the lives of those born November 6th to 8th.  Your insights and the power of your mind and your speech and your intelligent effectiveness to make things happen has been consolidated.  The best qualities of Scorpio have been brought out in you, which is the manifestation of power for the greater good and without ego or pure self gain 


Before the 12th, many of you born after December 7th will be feeling extra confident in your personal appearance, extra loving, extra charming, with a sense of harmony emanating from you.   After the 12th you may find that finances are somehow slightly improved or at least protected. 

 From the 9th, if born up to December 8th, your constructive assertive qualities can take you far.  You’re physically, mentally and intellectually strong, focussed and successful. 

Jupiter is in harmonious angle currently in his once every six-year relationship to you for those born from the 2nd to 9th.  This augers well for social life and for friendships and for having luck in pursuing your goals and in particularly when involved in collective goals.  It gives you leadership skills as well and brings an element of growth, luck and travel is very good too. 

Remember though that Saturn is going through your sign still and is currently focussing his energies on those December 5th to 10th.  So despite the Jupiter protection for many of you, there will be some reality checks for this group.  Extra responsibilities are in the air.  Challenges to your organisation skills abound.  You need to be pragmatic, mature and focused in order to achieve what you need to achieve.  Blocks and restrictions demand reconsideration and patience.  Also important to step up to the plate and embrace what needs to be done, but also to take time to ensure that you don’t push your body too hard and that you look after your health.  It is also a time when finances may need a little caution and austerity too. 

Uranus however, is continuing his exciting stimulant of your Sun, if born December 11th to 14th.  This continues until April 2017.  So since June 2015, this journey has been underway and has been awakening you, enlightening you to new possibilities, new ways of looking at life, new creative and romantic innovations and a sense of more liberation to be true to yourself.  Enjoy.

By contrast however, if born around December 1st to 3rd, you are still experiencing, although it is nearly over (by February), a long-term transit of Neptune squaring your Sun.  It has been in the ether since April 2015.  So there is still a little way to go in needing to be careful about self-delusion, over-idealism, and deceptive circumstances and it is important to keep grounded.  However, positively, you have become more sensitive inspired and more appreciative of the arts and nature than ever before; and your empathy and sympathy is powerful.  You will also have needed more sleep and to avoid any substances as much as possible, which will have a slight distorting effect, because your body and mind is very sensitive under this transit. 

The new Moon falls in your sign on the 14th affecting all born around November 29th. A sense of the innovative is around you and  augers well for the coming year in this respect.


This is a socially demanding month and friends play an important part, as do group associations.  

After the 12th, Venus in your sign, will bring to those born up to January 13th a boost to your physical attractions and your affections and your sensitivity to beauty and the arts will all be underlined.  Love and harmony is in the ether. 

Before the 9th, Mars in your sign will bring an effective boost to energy and drive for all born after January 15th.  You are assertive, but be sure that the assertiveness doesn’t tip into slight aggression .You are a force to be reckoned with now; and indeed you may attract those to you who are equally determined to stand their ground.  It is a good idea to use the energy positively and consciously, maybe in competitive sports, but ambition is seriously underlined. 

For all born January 1st to 8th, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun from your Solar Eleventh House.  The intimation of this is that you are going to be feeling very self-indulgent and also that you are likely to be easily influenced by others who persuade you to push the boat out.  Over-generosity and over-confidence can be a problem, but good times can roll with caution. Don’t expect too much of self or others
Since June of last year, those born January 10th to 13th have been experiencing the Square of Uranus, which has brought some sense of disruption, uncertainty, adrenaline and almost a rebellious quality and sense of lack of continuity and uncertainty has been in the air, very likely from the area of home, domestic, real estate.  This has been a bit of a chaotic journey, but you will be glad to know that it is over by the end of March next year.  The goal of the journey will be more liberty in independence; flexibility being the only way to ride the challenge, even if it has at times been something unnerving.  Don’t be too impulsive to force change.  It is going to happen in its own time anyway. 

Neptune has been blessing you with a greater sensitivity, aesthetically and spiritually if born December 30th to January 1st.  This has been around you for around 18 months and continues to be so until February 2017.  You have gained from this journey and your heart and your mind have been more in balance.  You may have been surprised at the increased sensitivity that has actually done you many favours.

Pluto is in his last lap of affecting those born January 5th to 7th.  Since December 2015 you have been feeling the power and the intense sense of destiny that this has brought.  It may not always have been comfortable.  Power struggles and endings of chapters have been thrust upon you in some way, as has your sense of needing to acknowledge your power with consciousness and with a good conscious. By the end of the year you will have completed the missions that Pluto has brought to your door.  The revolution internally and externally will be obvious in retrospect.  You have a responsibility to use your power wisely and to remember that you are the agent not the owner of it; and any endings that have been uncomfortable have been predestined. 


Focus on your work and your public standing will be inevitable this month.  

Before the 12th, if born after February 4th, take advantage of social invitations because there is a potential for great joy, satisfaction, sharing of feelings and even romance. 

 After the 9th, for all born up to February 5th, your energy and drive peaks.  Ambition, determination even forcefulness is possible.  Beware that it doesn’t turn into stubborn over-assertion and know that others who come into your space are not pushovers either, but on every level you know who you are, where you are going, what you want and how to do it.  Just be careful your motive is pure.

Jupiter is very helpful now in his once every six year angular relationship of a positive nature to those born January 30th to February 6th.  Travel is particularly flagged up as positive and enjoyable and any long distance issues can be very beneficial and indeed academic pursuits flourish too.  You feel lucky, you grow, there is positivity and benevolence and at the very least protection.  Enjoy.  The Universe is on your side.

 For those born February 2nd to 7th however Saturn is also bringing challenges , but of a very positive sort to your door.  Responsibilities and obligations you handle well and wisely.  There is loyalty and you step up to the plate.  You’re pragmatic, practical, and cautious and earn respect for your achievements, even though they are at the cost of some focus and hard work.  Your very mature attitude towards any challenge pays off wonderfully. 
Your ruler Uranus is continuing his long once-ever 42-year transit to the Suns of those born February 9th to 11th.  Since June 2015 this has been affecting you on and off and is now in his final throws of stimulation.  By March you will look back and realise that over the last 18 months or so you have become more genuinely true to yourself.  Your thinking has been much more evolved, big picture aware and liberating; and your ability to influence other people to liberate themselves and move forward, including yourself, has been significant.  You have awoken to true potential on your life’s path and your enlightenment is much more powerful in your consciousness.


November can be a very creative and also a very sociable time for Pisces, with the love life and art highlighted as can come speculative ventures.

 Before the 12th, if born after March 6th, be careful that you are not over-confident or over-indulgent in your work expectation.  Remember that charm alone also is not enough, but creativity is strong.

After the 12th, if born up to March 13th, your popularity and your ability to bring joy to others is notable; and working in collaboration with others creatively, or for a good cause can be very successful and satisfying. 
 Before the 9th, for all born after March 19th, your leadership skills are considerable and your constructive intelligent action, both alone and in collaboration with others, is certainly note-worthy; and your ability to fight for causes that you believe in, on projects which matter to you, is considerable. 

Saturn is notable challenging now for those born March 4th to 9th.  This once-every fifteen-year square to your Sun is bringing some challenges in career and also connected to authority figures.  Decisions need to be made based on the fact that you come up against challenges in your professional life.  Others things are really tough and difficult and demand extra hard work; or you’re feeling negative about your circumstances.  Honesty and humility are the only guide to the truth in the matter and lack of confidence needs to be fought, but with courage and standing up to challenges you can prove yourself, but it takes time, effort and ensuring you pace yourself physically.  On the other hand, it may be a time when you realise that you have to face the fact that a change of direction may be wise.  Either way, you can grow through this period. 

Your ruler Neptune has been sitting on the Suns of those born February 27th to March 1st since April 2015; and has been so doing on and off; and will do so until February of next year. This long journey of your ruler in his once every 165 years visitation to your Sun has flagged up the very essence of Pisces qualities strongly underlined in your being, in all its positive and negative manifestations.  Extra sensitivity, psychic powers, escapism, artistic longings, idealism, confusion, potential for self-deception or deception from others, complete inspiration on a humanitarian or aesthetic level and a sort of divine discontent for better, more spiritual idealistic circumstances. Positively you have needed, and continue to need to use your hyper-sensitivity to improve the conditions of those around you and to inspire rather than to let that hyper-sensitivity drag you down, with a sense of despair or disillusion. 

Those involved in the arts, or compassionate work have risen magnificently to this energy. It has been an opportunity to understand and deal positively with the exquisite universal qualities of love, the arts and spiritual inspiration that Neptune can bring and which can be comforting and inspiring to others. Of course, the brighter the light, the darker the shadow.  Inevitably with those qualities comes some pain, when all is not as you would love it to be. 

Pluto, since March 2015, is now in his last stage of being in a very positive relationship to the Suns of those born March 5th to 7th.  By December of this year, when this transit is over, you will look back and realise that there has been a subtle sense of finding your place in the world, which has been enabling you to show your power in terms of dealings with others and to have a leadership ability, intelligent insight and a will to make things happen for the greater good.  This has been a destined empowerment and transformation in your life, born out of intelligence and a compulsion to use your power for regeneration and transformation for self, but more importantly for others.
