Mercury moving direct from the 5th will be very constructive for many, as goals get furthered and communications become clearer. Strong multi planetary emphasis on Virgo (purity and environment) this month will also flag up environmental issues, with increased realisation of a need for change to a more sustainable and planet protecting policies. Mars moving into in Virgo from the 5th will underscore this. Not least because of current extreme weather events worldwide in Asia, India and the USA, which will alert people to the real effects of climate change, despite the deniers.
Talking of climate change deniers, in the first week of the month, Mars will be at 29 degrees of Leo, which is exact on Trump’s ascendant, having on the 31st of August, triggered its own place in his chart, hence he will be rather explosive in temperament, re foreign policy in particular, in those opening days of the month. There is however, if we get past this period unscathed, a small, if temporary respite from the warlike noises of July and August thankfully and Uranus is in positive mode, as is Pluto, so there should be at the least a feeling of more optimism and progress in constructive news on the planet.
Trump still (since the beginning of July) has Saturn conjunct his Moon and moving to oppose his Sun from the 26th staying there till half way through October. This protracted every 30-year assault/learning curve from Saturn brings events and karma that are not easy. However with Pluto still squaring his Jupiter (since July and every aprox 124 years) he will remain in fighting mode till mid December. This transit also creates significant power struggles with others with powerful wills (including family).
The last few days of the month sees Saturn square up to the natal degree of Neptune in the USA chart. This will see the dawning of very significant reality checks in that country, not least in economic terms and in international standing and reputation, but also re its president, as wake up calls are huge.
The last week of the month sees Jupiter oppose Uranus in the heavens. This once every 12-year event will embolden many to take a rather risky leap into a future, perceived as freer and more exciting. An adrenalin rush is in the air. It may also manifest as a feat of technology that is revolutionary, but with possible unpredictable outcomes.
The problem with leaps in technological capabilities however, is that they are not always matched by leaps in wisdom.
Neptune (an outer planet so it has generational effect in its influence) now in Pisces till 2025/2026 and since 2011, creates a backdrop of a renewed sense of a need to honour the natural world and has awoken us as to how much we have sacrificed it on the altar of our consumption and greed. However, all born with Neptune in Pisces will be a generation greatly affected by this awareness and in their essence there will be a powerful desire to value and protect nature and its creatures.
They will realise that the natural world can sustain our need, but not our greed.
This month days when there are however some smoke and mirrors and deceptive circumstances geopolitically very pronounced are on the 4/5th, the 20th, and the 24th/25th. The Sun, Mercury and Mars respectively will then be opposing Neptune and this creates confusion and possible misjudgement of facts and slight of hand. This energy is also an influence on us all individually too.
The Moon is full on the 6th at 13 degrees of Pisces, (exactly on Teresa May’s natal Mars.) Some eruptions are in the air on that day (not least for her perhaps). The full Moon brings things to a close, as truths will out and the brooding unconscious is unleashed.
The new Moon is on the 20th at 27 degrees of Virgo. New starts are in the air and a renewed sense of confidence.
It really is a month to concentrate on everyday routine work and to rationalise this if possible.
Before the 10th, focus in terms of communications is on romantic and creative life. However, from the 5th, when Mercury moves direct, breakthroughs will feel a relief. After the 10th, again, work needs your attention.
Before the 20th, for all born after March 27th, the affections and romance and enjoyment of life and creative skills are enhanced.
After the 20th, once again, work and health issues are in a very positive light
Before the 5th, all born after April 16th are in determined mode. Creatively and in romantic areas there is a drive and a will to achieve in a very successful way. Again, after the 5th it’s back to more mundane issues.
Jupiter is enhancing the relationship area for all born April 10th to 18th. Other people are generous, other cultures may dominate your life, and there are general benefits from others, but don’t let other people tempt you into being more adventurous or confident than is realistic.
However, there is a strong sense of the brakes being on for those born April 10th to 13th. For this group there is discipline and hard work needed and you are required to step up to the plate, so do what is necessary and loyalty and duty and hard work connected to travel is a strong possibility, but work done and duty done now will pay off in the long term.
Uranus is still really exciting the lives of those born April 16th to 19th. There is a continued restlessness, which you have experienced for a while now. The unexpected is in the air. You surprise yourself and others and events are very left field. Just keep calm. Enjoy the journey. Try not to throw babies out with bathwater, but know you are awakening and enlightening to a new consciousness and this will go on until early 2019, so don’t push the river. Don’t rush. Watch the change; and even changes that are uncomfortable ultimately are part of your destiny.
Finally, Pluto, since 2016, has been squaring the Suns of those born April 5th to 8th. This continues until the end of the year. Some power struggles and profound changes in your work have been dealt and will continue to be, hopefully wisely. Fate is around. Keep good motive.
This is a month for enjoyment, fun and sociability. Notably for those born after April 29th.
After the 5th, a lot of issues that have been difficult, blocked, or restricted or frustrating will clear.
After the 10th, for all of you, communications with offspring, spouses, lovers and all creative ventures go very well; and your mind is articulate.
Before the 20th, all born after April 28th will be feeling very indulgent and enjoying the good life. Just be aware of lacking moderation.
However, after the 20th for all born up to May 4th love life is underlined. Affections are strong and offspring are a joy; and those with a creative bent, flourish.
Before the 5th however, Mars is slightly challenging for those born after May 17th. There is a definite need to stop and think before you react or speak, particularly around home and family, as you are a little bit like a bull in a china shop. Impatience is in the air and others will not respond kindly to this.
However, after the 5th, for all born up to May 8th, you’re in constructive mode and nothing’s going to stop you creatively and constructively dealing with projects that involve enjoyment, love life and offspring.
Neptune is continuing to inspire and sensitise the lives of those born May 2nd to 4th. This long transit, since March, continues strongly until March 2018; and during this period you will find that your desire is to have your heart satisfied as well as your idealism and your humanitarian, compassionate and sensitive side. Your creative side needs celebrating and understanding and accepting. Certain psychic qualities are also likely to be triggered.
Finally, for all born May 6th to 9th, Pluto continues in his long journey to inspire, empower and re-invent your life somehow. Opportunities that are long distance and connected to expanding your mind and consciousness are all around and you can recognise potential and power (use wisely) that you have never really felt before. Enjoy.
Home issues predominate. Focus lies with family. Your ruler, Mercury finally moves direct on the 5th, allowing your thoughts and speech to be clearly understood and for blocks and restrictions to life to lift. After the 10th, all of you again, will find that there is a great need for expressing yourself and communicating on the home front.
Before the 20th, those born after May 28th are able to combine heart with mind; and your charms and your empathy are strong. Writers excel.
However, after the 20th, for all born up to June 4th, your desire to enjoy life and to indulge may exceed the bank balance; and spending generously on the home and family needs a little caution.
Before the 5th, however, all born after June 18th have a very strong sense of determination to get heard and that may be because of the frustrations of your ruler being retrograde. However, your actions and your courage are noteworthy and positive.
After the 5th, for all born up to June 8th, your energies may be causing some problems, as you are easily irritated and rather impulsive; and you may waste time on bickering. Impatience is strong. Have a care.
Jupiter, however is gracing the lives for those born June 11th to 20th. Creative talents are flourishing. Confidence, travel, loves life has all got great support and optimism; and relationships are particularly beneficial and happy.
However, for those born June 11th to 14th, despite Jupiter’s protection, are feeling that something or someone is blocking their path to complete happiness. Get rest, Be patient. Step up to the plate and do what is necessary in terms of duty, obligation and pragmatism. At least Jupiter is acting as a cavalry effect..
Uranus, however, is still giving all those born June 18th to 20th a boost in terms of awakening you and enlightening you to new possibilities and making you restless for the innovative. Friends and groups are inspiring you. You are discovering new dimensions of self and life; and technology and the innovative can be a great boost. This remains with you, on and off, until March 2019. Enjoy.
Finally, those born around June 2nd to 4th are still dealing with Neptune’s square to your Sun, which will be with you strongly until March 2018. This continues to bring over-idealism and potential confusion, or look through rose coloured spectacles. You have had to be very careful to honour your heart and to realise that there is a need to let your career express your emotional side, not just your strong rational side. Watch out for deceptive circumstances round others and be true to yourself, but enjoy nature and the arts, as that is very healing.
Your mind is sharp and alert this month. However, after the 5th you will really notice the benefits of this, when Mercury moves direct. Communications with others, particularly siblings, will be enhanced. Notably after the 10th when your mind is in good form.
After the 20th all born up to July 5th will have an extra dimension of love and harmony and sensitivity added to your thoughts and communications; and augers very well for the writers amongst you.
After the 5th, all born up to July 9th will feel strong willed and determined and constructive in your thoughts and utterances. People listen and admire. Your constructive strength should not be underestimated.
If born July 13th to 21st, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun, which does tend to a little over-confidence, possibly some arrogance and maybe pushing out the boat too far. Have a bit of caution, but do enjoy this expansive period.
Uranus, for those born July 19th to 22nd, is however continuing with his square to your Sun, which does hang around until around March 2019; and this energy can feel; and has done for some time, quite disruptive, particularly in your working and professional life. There is restlessness and there is the unpredictable in the air; and other and work conditions may be going through a stage of uncertainty. This will ultimately liberate you, but just watch, ride and be flexible. This is a journey.
All born around July 3rd and 4th are being truly inspired through to early 2018. Other countries and higher learning are bringing out your most sensitive and aware self. Empathy, caring and compassion is strong. Spiritual and creative pursuits are very favoured.
Finally, all born July 8th to 11th are continuing to find that life has got a fated quality about it and that certain relationships are going through significant changes, as you realise that you cannot be controlled or manipulated. By the end of the year this will have been resolved. Meantime, stay strong, draw lines, do not abuse power and do not sink to other people’s levels of behaviour if they do. Endings are followed by phoenixes out of the ashes.
The focus is very much on finances this month, being Virgo’s month, which is your Solar Second House; and from the 5th, any blocks or restrictions that you have been experiencing are likely to lift; and from the 10th, finances may run a little more smoothly.
Before the 20th, Venus is in your sign is, for all born after July 28th, enhancing your charms, and bringing love and affection to your door. Enjoyment predominates. However, from the 20th, financial dealings and favours can enhance your life.
Before the 5th, Mars is in your sign and very much affecting you if born after August 19th. There is drive and ambition for this group, which can tip into assertiveness – which is excellent for the rest of us. Courage and determination is at the least yours.
After the 5th, many of you may find that others and yourself express assertion in financial issues.
Jupiter is supportive now of all born August 13th to 21st. A certain amount of luck is yours and intelligent action, which can bring progress; and certain benevolence is also yours too.
On top of which, Saturn is for the very small group of those born August 13th to 16th, pressurising you to be very mature, pragmatic, dutiful, loyal and face up to facts and step up to the plate and achieve what your obligations tell you to. Responsibilities in love life, around offspring and in speculation are yours to see through.
For all born August 19th to 22nd, you still have Uranus trining your Suns. For this group, there is an ongoing sense of liberation, freedom, the new, the innovative, particularly connected to legal issues and overseas issues; and possibly being awakened, through study, to new dimensions of consciousness. Belief in uniqueness is strong and enabled and other people are very much catalysts for this new consciousness that is liberating.
This is your month when there is lots of emphasis on your sign, so power to your elbow and a great sense of the life force is being focused on you. Your ruler, Mercury, moves direct on the 5th, which will bring a relief, particularly a psychological relief, that finally maybe things can start moving forward, having been on hold since the middle of August; and indeed after the 10th, all of you will really feel the strength of your mental skills finally being put to good use, appreciated and bringing good results and your communication levels will speed up remarkably.
Before the 20th, if born after August 30th, there will be a sense of well being in your inner psychological self; and behind the scenes good deeds will be very much appreciated.
After the 20th, if born up to September 6th, your own charms and affections are underlined; and love life is strong and your ability to attract love and money is underlined.
After the 5th, all born up to September 10th have Mars going through your sign and over your Suns, which will bring a great deal of assertiveness, determination, courage and constructive power. Just ensure it doesn’t tip into slightly aggressive impatience. It will be hard for you to take no for an answer.
Saturn is rather challenging now for those born September 13th to 16th. This has been going on for over a month, but will lift next month. There has been a feeling of block and restriction in your actions and it may have come from home or family issues, or to do with real estate. It is also a time when you can feel tired and everything feels like an uphill struggle. Keep disciplined, focussed and working hard, but patience is your virtue right now. Get the rest that you need.
Neptune continues, in his very long protracted transit of your Sun, if born September 4th to 6th; and will do so until March 2019. This is a journey where you have felt very much an element of uncertainty, confusion and shades of grey around other people. You may have idealised people and you may also have been vulnerable to other people’s lack of sincerity or plain deception; and it is important that you maintain your vigilance and do not take everything at face value. However, it is also true that your desire for your heart to sing is strong, for there is increased spiritual awareness and creative appreciation and also appreciation of nature, which all needs to be acknowledged and fed. Just beware of escapism of a negative sort. Music and the film world can however be very healing.
Finally Pluto is really empowering for those born September 8th to 11th and has been since early 2016. This is a period of real regeneration and transformation and self-reinvention through love life, children or creative gifts. Enjoy.
The Moon is new in your sign on the 20th at 27 degrees of your sign. Hence for those born around the 20th, there is likely to be a sense on your birthday of a new chapter being born and where you feel happily more at one with yourself and confidently focused than usual.
After the 5th, there will be a relief in terms of your goals and your social life becoming a little more straightforward and less subject to confusion and misunderstandings and hiccups will get resolved. This very strong emphasis on Virgo this month would point to much behind the scenes activity, privacy and also dealings with issues and people that are very much connected to the past; and kindness to others and empathy and service will be flagged up. Not least after the 20th when your ruling planet Venus moves through your solar 12th house; and love life takes on a rather private dimension.
Before the 5th however, if born after October 20th, your ability to influence other people and to be a leader should not be under-estimated. Social life takes on a strong force in your life; and which you can use very much to your advantage and where you can be very much the driver of a very good and positive outcome.
However, after the 5th, there is a need for you all to remember not to sit on anger. Express it calmly to the right person, at the right place, at the right time.
Jupiter is very favourable now to those born October 14th to 22nd, as he transits your Suns. He did this twice before – the end of December 2016/January 2017 and then again end of February and March 2017 and this is the final hit, before he disappears for 12 years. This, quite simply, will bring optimism, positivity, joy, luck, travel and at the least protection. He will also bring wisdom and a certain amount of belief in self and confidence that will carry you far.
However, for those born October 14th to 17th, there will be an additional energy of Saturn, positively enhancing your discipline, focus, patience and hard work capacity, which bring extra success. It also brings intelligence and wisdom in thought and communication. A very progressive period.
For all born October 20th to 23rd, there is an additional energy with the planet Uranus continuing to oppose your Suns. This dynamic and rather unpredictable energy has been hovering around the Suns of this group since June and will continue to do so until around March 2019. Other people are the sources of disruption and their surprising behaviour or desire for freedoms, or their inspirations to you can be life changing; and although upsetting, ultimately will catapult you on to a new and better road, but equally, unusual and unconventional and rather maverick people can awaken you to new conceptions and new ideas, but just be cautious that you don’t allow other people to be too disruptive.
Finally, if born October 9th to 12, be aware that you are still in a phase of life where you need to liberate yourself from the old in order to give birth to the new; and internal struggles are part of the process, but keep conscious, cool and calm and take charge of your destiny without anger.
Friendships and goals, social life figure strongly this month; and frustrations around work will be relieved from the 5th as clarity rules.
From the 10th, the power of your communications to make your goals happen is restored.
Beware before the 20th, if born after October 30th of being hypocritical or sycophantic at work.
After the 20th, if born up to November 6th, your ability to show love and affection and creativity in terms of your leadership abilities and your goals and working with others is admirable and friends can turn into romantic partners.
However, a warning to those born after November 19th that before the 5th, there is a slight danger of you being a little bit too assertive in your working capacity. Irritation and impatience can your worst enemy and do not be coercive. Indeed you may also suffer the same at the hands of others. Handle it with wisdom and calm.
However, after the 5th, if born up to November 10th, your techniques and drives and confidence are well-expressed and constructed for self and others.
Neptune is very much a sensitising influence now for all those born November 4th to 6th. This influence, which has been going on since earlier in the year, continues to be strong until March 18th and indeed you will never lose it completely. It has sensitised your soul, has put a focus on your heart and your emotions, particularly when it comes to love life, the arts and one’s offspring. It has awoken a more spiritual and less material side, with empathy and compassion and sensitivity and intuition about others has flourished.
Finally, your ruler Pluto has been sextiling the Suns of those born November 8th to 11th since early 2016 and continues to until the end of the year. This has, and continues to bring intelligent power to your door, particularly in directing and helping other people with leadership skills that are intelligent, sensitive, regenerative and transformative; and provided these skills are used for the greater good and not just for yourself, this is a very satisfactory period.
Quite a lot of focus is on work this month as there is so much emphasis on your solar tenth house of Virgo.
However, after the 5th, there may well be a feeling of relief for many of you as communications and progress clarifies.
For all of you there is still a need to be absolutely certain that you are all talking from the same page, particularly professionally.
Before the 20th, for all born after November 28th, love and travel can go hand in hand and general feeling of harmony with other predominates. Harmony comes from study and travel.
After the 20th, however, if born up to December 5th, ensure that you are genuine at work and not exercising charm, just to get your own way, bur certainly charm will help.
From the 5th, Mars will, for all born after December 17th bring a great feeling of determination, courage, focus, especially connected to study, travel and legal issues. You are ideologically very passionate as well.
However, after the 5th, for all born up to December 9th, beware that impatience irritability and over-assertiveness does not rebound you negatively in the working environment. Also beware of people in authority maybe throwing their weight around a little. Confrontations are possible.
However, for all born December 12th to 20th, Jupiter is smiling on you. It is a great time for friendships, for helpful people, for good contacts, for networking and for leadership skills. Travel, confidence and potential growth and luck is in the air.
However, some of you will really need this protection as Saturn is sitting on the Suns of those born December 12th to 15th. This is a long drawn out stressful transit that you have been enduring. Blocks, restrictions, tiredness, some financial anxiety possible have all be haunting you. This will resolve with patience, determination, focus, hard work by late October. Get rest when you can.
Uranus, however, is still inspiring for those born December 18th to 21st. Areas to do with creative world, love life, enjoyment is all being exercised with excitement and the unpredictable and you are being liberated on many levels to a new sense of your own uniqueness.
However, for born around December 4th, you need to continue to keep vigilant about escapism, over-idealism and maybe even trusting too much. Getting plenty of sleep and being near the sea will help.
This is an excellent month for travel and for long distance issues and holidays for many of you. Also legal issues can be favourable, particularly after the 5th when Mercury moves direct, when travel hiccups are smoothed and academic progress is underlined.
From the 20th, for all born up to January 4th will also find that love life and happiness is very much hand in hand with travelling and learning. An enhanced consciousness is yours.
After the 5th, all born up to January 8th will have a great sense of constructive energy, ambition, determination and intelligent action. Notably in travel and in study; and success is assured in those areas, although prior to that, many of you may be putting a lot of effort into enduring complex financial are sorted out and indeed intimate relationships as well.
For those born January 11th to 19th, Jupiter is currently squaring your Sun. This does imply that there is a danger of over-reaching or over-ambition and even for you a rather unconfident side may be a little bit of arrogance in ambition. At the very least you will be having a good time with self-indulgence. Just ensure that others don’t feel that you are pushing too far, particularly in the working environment.
Uranus however, is still causing some unpredictability and restlessness within and without for those born January 16th to 19th. Domestic circumstances and family issues may be making you feel as if you are on the edge of your seat. This long transit is a journey, not an arrival and ultimately wakes you up to new dimensions.
Neptune is inspiring those born around January 3rd. The heart is opened and your thinking is combined far more with your emotions than it has been before. Your sensitivities and your artistic and spiritual nature is flourishing.
However, if born January 6th to 9th, you are until the end of the year, completing a period of real transition in terms of your power. Endings of chapters have been in the air and continue to be so. This is about self-reinvention, transformation and regeneration; and sometimes you have to go through the dark to get to the light. Destiny is in the ether.
It is quite important this month to focus on intimate relationships and complex money issues; and after the 5th, relationship issues in general can start to become more concrete and secure.
Before the 20th, if born after January 26th, romance and love life flourish and your charms attract positive vibes from other people and you attract affection.
Before the 5th, however, if born after February 15th, there is a potential for attracting who are rather assertive or even aggressive. Confrontations are possible. It is important that you are not too rigid, fixed or impulsive in dealings with others.
However, if born February 9th to 17th, Jupiter is bringing good fortune from long distance connections. It is very good for travel and holidays. This is very good for academic success and growth and a general feeling of well being, inner and or outer.
If born February 9th to 12th, Saturn is bringing much stability through hard work and discipline and patience and maturity to your lives. Obligations and duties are accepted with honour and consciousness, with constructive, positive results in the offing, particularly in obligations to other people in leadership roles.
Your ruler Uranus continues to bring out your Aquarian best if born February 15th to 18th. Your mind is super intuitive. You have eureka moments and you are able to communicate to self and others in a way that is outside the box, universal and even existential in its understanding and insight. Study of the less mainstream subjects inspire you.
It is very much about other people and relationships this month. From the 5th, when Mercury moves direct, you will find that you can really sort problems out with others, as communications become much clearer.
After the 10th, for all of your, there is a great sense that people everywhere are listening to you; and you receive very good and intelligent communications from others as well, which are constructive.
After the 20th, if born up to March 4th, love life can take a turn for the better and there is definitely a feeling that Cupid is in the air and you attract much affection and what you give is reciprocated.
After the 5th however, one needs to be a little bit aware that if born up to March 8th, Mars may well bring into your orbit some people who are a little on the challenging side; and you have to be careful that you do not invite this, by being over-assertive yourself. Others may confront you and test your resolve. Stop and count to ten before you react.
Saturn is less than helpful if born March 11th to 14th. Responsibilities, obligations and duties feel onerous and burdensome and blocks and restrictions prevent you moving forward and your tiredness is significant and needs respecting. With patience and perseverance you will get through this block, but reality checks need acknowledging.
Neptune however, is maintaining his mesmerising grip on those born March 2nd to 4th. There are two ways of dealing with this long transit, which will not be completely over until early next year; and which is creating two possibilities. Either escapism, over-idealism and non-reality, or real inspiration, empathy, compassion, sensitivity and a desire to really excel in creativity. New spirituality is around as is almost a psychic awakening but do keep rounded and avoid running away from realities, but do also listen to your heart.
Finally, Pluto is, for those born March 6th to 9th, giving you a tremendous sense of insight, intelligence and power to affect the lives of other people for the better; and therefore to improve your own self-image. A time of intelligent insight as to what your destiny is and how you can help others. Use this power wisely and not for ego, but for others. You are the steward, not the owner of the power.
The full Moon is at 13 degrees of Pisces on the 5th. This suggests that those born around the 3rd-5th of March, are likely to feel a sense of potential eruption that comes from ones own unconscious machinations or from another’s on that day. This may indicate a need to bring a chapter or situation to a close, or at least to confront and maybe clear away much baggage
