Thursday, 28 February 2019


 Mercury is retrograde from the 5th –28th.  This happens on average about 3 times a year for about 3 weeks. Because Mercury rules communications, it is renowned as a period of delay, confusion and blockage in all matters connected to communication. It also correlates with transport disruption, delays, and travel difficulties and with potential technological breakdown and problems too. Things are put on hold.

The best use of this period, although frustration is natural, is to take the opportunity to stop and rethink the direction of travel and to make amendments and revisals . It is a time to breathe and review with a bigger picture viewpoint, rather than blindly rushing on as usual, because you wont be able to.  A crisis can be an opportunity.

Also, importantly Uranus leaves Aries for Taurus on the 6th where he will now stay for approximately 7 years. This changes the orientation of the message of change, rebellion and the unpredictable and revolutionary on our planet, to now affect the principles of Taurus (security, infrastructure, money, values).  This will show itself notably in terms of money and how we use it. Uranus rules technology, so the cashless society looms large, which will be rebelled against too, from those whose lives are cash centred.  Much insecurity is flagged up globally. Also Taurus is connected to mother earth, especially the soil and the infrastructure and the ecosystem of our planet. So Uranus will truly bring shocking realisations of the power of the changing natural environment to disrupt our lives, especially resulting from our human activity and misplaced value system and therefore our interference with its purity and balance.

We need shock (Uranus) in this area (earthy fundamental Taurus), to finally stop us keeping on fiddling while Rome burns, in terms of our slow response to our looming climate and environmental nemesis. Whilst Brexit and the world economy blindly dominate the narrative, children and teenagers feel the necessity to take to the streets about a huge existential crisis confronting them, more than anyone. This says it all.  Pluto (karma resulting from misuse of power) in Capricorn (economic establishment) is flagging up the results of the mindless misuse of greed and the pursuit of eternal growth, as a systemic way of life.

England has Uranus squaring Venus this month before the 6th, bringing unexpected responses from other countries to our demands and our economy will take some pre-emptive knocks as more insecurity takes its toll on business.  Neptune is also starting to oppose England’s Saturn, which dissolves the status quo and also our basic assumptions about our systemic functionality, not least politically and re our strength as a world player. Some humility will be needed. The old order and our status is dissolving, but this is a necessity, so we can let go of an outdated model of traditional politics.

Both Teresa May’s and Jeremy Corbyn’s charts are rather brow beaten to say the least this month. Mars being powerful for both of them. Anger, stubbornness, power struggles, deceptions and losses are written all over Corbyn’s chart and between March 21st and April the 1st (critical dates Brexit wise) Teresa’s chart is besieged also by much anger and aggression and even it seems her final capitulation to significant pressure This will dominate her life.

Trump has Pluto starting opposing his Saturn from late this month and through April and May (every 248 years event and repeats really strongly at the very end of the year and the beginning of next) .The proverbial will start hit the fan, as forces beyond his control really threaten his authority in many areas and the past is poisonous for him.  However he will, before this influence hits hard, and which he senses is coming, before mid March, compensate, by significantly risking an over reaching and an overplaying of his hand mode of behaviour. Displacement behaviour is very much flagged up.

Brace yourself for a coming 7 years of an inevitable revolution in value systems brought on by Uranus, who is now ready to roll in Taurus.


Mercury is retrograde from Pisces, which may mean that some of you may be feeling rather absent minded, particularly when trying to memorise everything from the past and this can be frustrating.

Before the 26th, your best support and affections can come from friends and your leadership abilities and group cooperation bring you accolades; and friendship and love can overlap.  Your ruler Mars is likely to see you being assertive when it comes to finances this month.

Jupiter is very much on your side if born April 10th to 15th.  This is excellent for travel, legal issues, internationalism and academic success and there is a feeling of luck, positivity and growth.

However, Saturn still in Capricorn is on the case of those born April 6th to 10th.  For this group, responsibilities, obligations and problems at work weigh heavily.  Do not let lack of confidence be the winner.  This is about stepping up to the plate and doing what has to be done with the belief it’s correct, but look after your health too and get rest..

Uranus moves out of your sign on the 6th, ending for all those born around April 18th/19th a long period where change has felt constant and the lack of relaxation has been in the air.  This you can now say goodbye to.

Pluto, however, has now moved on, bringing challenges for all born April 11th to 14th.  Endings of chapters are in the air and career may well be the main focus of this, but beware power struggles or misuse of power and defend yourself fairly if others do not have good boundaries in their dealings with you.


This is a sociable month when, particularly before the 20th, friendships and group goals shine in your life. 

Mercury, retrograde this month in Pisces however, does suggest that you may feel some frustrations and misunderstandings, particularly with groups and friends, which you need to guard against as best as possible.  Have patience as well.

Before the 26th you all need to be aware about some sycophantic behaviour at work.  Be honest, rather than hypocritical. 

However, after the 26th, your social life and the affections of others cheer you up.

Mars is in your sign all month, is directly impacting, at some point in the month, all born after April 29th, which does mean that many of you will be at the very least assertive and some of you may be impatient or even slightly aggressive.  Have a care.  A lot of the anger can come from the unconscious, but also be aware that other people will challenge you as well.  Count to ten.

Saturn is, for those born May 7th to 11th, bringing a period of maturity, hard work, biting the bullet and enabling you to do things you would find very difficult at other times; and for this you get admiration.  Duty is on the cards, especially related to travel, study and possibly legal issues.

Uranus moves into your sign on the 6th, where he will stay for seven years.  Initially he will be impacting all of you born at the very beginning of Taurus, at around April 21st.  What you had a hint of in the summer and autumn of 2018, is now back for re-visitation. Restlessness, and a feeling of needing to express yourself in a totally true to yourself way, especially at work is within you, but do not jump unto change too quickly it will arrive anyway. For those of you who are scared of change have faith that the changes you have no choice about are ultimately beneficial

Neptune is truly sensitising the lives and feelings of all born May 5th-8th.
There is a need for work to reflect this, especially creatively and from a humanitarian viewpoint

If born May 13th to 16th be aware that you’re starting two years of real empowerment, particularly of your mind, now Pluto is positively on your case (every 248 years).


Your ruler Mercury moves retrograde on the 5th and stays that way until the 28th, which very simply implies that particularly in career misunderstandings, failed communications and frustrations abound.  Have patience and double check, and if necessary, rethink some issues.

Before the 26th, many of you may find a lot of happiness and joy through philosophical studies, academic interests and particularly re international issues.  Love and travel can go hand in hand.

After the 26th, however, if born up to May 28th, don’t expect too much from others.

Jupiter is opposing the Suns now of those born June 13th to 17th.  Although this can bring positivity and optimism in relationships, particularly beware of over-reaching or over-expecting too much of others and avoid others persuading you to embark on ventures that may be a little OTT.  Travel and good times are in the air, but moderation is needed, as is realism. 

For those born June 6th to 12th, Neptune has now moved and is therefore affecting this group in a way that can bring deceptive circumstances in its influence.  Over-idealism or a propensity for deceptions from yourself or from others is possible.  Get clarity as you may not have got the total message, particularly when it comes to work communications and beware of seeing through rose coloured spectacles.  Get rest and you need more sleep.  Geminis are hyper in their nervous system and this demands that you give yourself a break.  


Now that Uranus has moved into Taurus, many of you born around July 21st will be feeling a sense of relief after some long months of restlessness and unpredictability. 

Now, for all born around June 22nd, there is a new sense of excitement and a desire for a change that is positive and in your control.  You are waking up to your own authenticity.

However, Mercury is retrograde this month, from the 5th to the 28th.  It is important that you prepare for a few delays and potentially some misunderstandings.

After the 26th, if born up to June 29th, love life, happiness, warmth and affection emanates very strongly from other countries, or through travel and also through very happy higher learning. 

Mars is very supportive for all born after June 27th, as from Taurus he is giving courage, determination, wisdom and constructive energy.  Not least when working in collaboration with others.

Saturn, however, working his way through Capricorn, is now opposing the Suns of those born July 9th to 13th.  For this group frustrations and blocks seem to come from other people.  Oppressive people need confronting and dealing with, but know the difference between when their needs are genuine or whether there is some motive of exploitation or unnecessary oppression, but patience is the best virtue now and look after yourself. 

 Neptune is now bountiful in terms of creative gifts, empathy and spiritual connections, if born July 7th-11th, especially with long distance connections. The sea is a great draw as is music and a sense of real peace is likely as is a hugely compassionate heart

Pluto is also now directly opposing, in his once every 248-year hit, the Suns of those born July 14th to 17th.  For this group issues connected to power struggles with others are showing themselves.  This is quite a long journey and you need to assert yourself where necessary but without sinking to dark levels.  Changes are in the air, as are endings, followed by regeneration and transformation.


A deep need to look at complex finances is possible and since Mercury is retrograde between the 5th and the 28th, financial hiccups, and delays need patience and also misunderstanding and clarity in that area is therefore needed.

Venus, opposite your sign before the 26th, brings to many of you a welcome ray of sunshine in terms of love and affection and positive input from others. 

Mars is square to your sign, bringing for all those born after August 2nd, a tendency to feel that others are on your back or over assertive, unnecessarily.  Impatience is in the air and stubbornness, but you must make sure you don’t contribute to the problem. 

Jupiter is very much the friend now of those born August 14th to 19th. Happiness through love life and children are possible.  Positivity, travel, expansion of horizons and extra wisdom and philosophical insight is yours. 

Uranus leaves Aries on the 6th. For seven years Uranus has been very positive for your sign in terms of bringing change and excitement and adventure, but now from Taurus, he may bring some disruption and this month this could be affecting those born around July 25th.  There was a flavour of this last summer, but now real change is in the air that may not be welcome.  It is possibly to do with work, but ultimately it kick starts you into probably a better direction, but it is important not be impulsive and patient, particularly when dealing with people who may be rather unpredictable and volatile, as indeed might you be.


Relationships are a powerful input this month, but because Mercury is retrograde between the 5th and the 28th, misunderstandings with other people is very possible.  Clarify everything and ensure all arrangements are watertight or you may feel easily let down.

After the 26th, all born up to August 30th will have a period of a sense of loving input from others and there is much mutual happiness. 

Mars is very constructive also for all those born after September 1st, well-organised and determined study can bring success in academia and in wisdom and also travel has got an element of enthusiasm and productivity. Legal issues are also well directed. 

Jupiter is however, for all born September 14th to 19th, encouraging a little bit of over-enthusiasm or over-indulgence possibly, particularly on the home or domestic front.  Over-confidence, which is not a usual characteristic of your sign, can creep in.  Good times roll, that’s for sure, but know when your biting off more than maybe you can chew. 

Saturn, however, by contrast, is a great disciplinarian now in a very constructive way for those born September 9th to 14th.  You are mature, practical, and constructive and you can do what is necessary in a way that seems easy compared to if you were challenged in the same way at other times.  Loyalty and a sense of responsibility is admirable.

Uranus, having just moved into Taurus, a compatible sign to yours, is bringing now for all born around August 25th, a new sense of excitement and innovation, and opportunities for travel and breakthroughs, intellectually and legally are also on the cards. 

Neptune points to a need for careful scrutiny of people and circumstances if born around September 7th-11th. The opposition to your Sun now suggests smoke and mirrors around people and circumstances or over idealisation of others or ideas. Ask for advice from people with clear vision and whom you can really trust.  However positively the beauties of nature and the arts will attract and provide comfort and inspiration.

Pluto however is now creating for those born 15th-18th a sense of some potential conflict internally, or from others about some deep-rooted issues connected possibly to love life or speculative issues. Beware manipulation or misuse of power… from self or others.


Mercury retrograde from the 5th to the 28th suggests that you need to be very careful about communications at work.  Get things clear.  Delays are possible as well. 

Before the 26th, romance is very much in the air, as is creative talent.  Enjoy. This is good also around offspring as well.

Jupiter is a friend now for those born October 14th to 19th.  Your intelligence, insight, wisdom, confidence and communication skills bring progress from your own efforts and indeed through other people. 

However, Saturn is a bit trying now for those born October 10th to 14th.  Issues to do with home and family feel blocked, restricted or frustrated and you are tired.  Take it easy.  Be patient but step up to the plate if necessary.

Finally Uranus has left your opposite sign and moves into Taurus on the 6th which means that many of you born late October, around the 22nd, can feel a sign of relief that a lot of stress and unpredictability is now disappearing after a long period.  Changes made will start to benefit you.

Pluto has now moved on to directly square the Suns of those born October 15th to 18th.  This will bring over the coming few years some challenges to do with endings and new beginnings, possibly connected to home and family, but also the potential for real regeneration and transformation. A Phoenix out of the ashes, no less.  Be wary of power struggles and also struggles within yourself that can feel quite dark.  Financial issues may be part of the picture but endings and new beginnings are potentials.  Be wary of ruthlessness in self or from others and always make sure your power is motivated for the greater good. 


This is a month where there are plentiful times for recreation and fun and social life and happiness around children are in the air, although with Mercury retrograde between the 5th and the 28th, hiccups, delays, misunderstandings may need extra vigilance when it comes to clarity and patience.

Before the 26th there will be a temptation to be over-indulgent or over-extravagant financially on the home and family front or to do with real estate.

However, after the 26th, if born up to October 30th love life has a particular charm and excitement and the affections generally are strong. 

Mars is in your opposite sign currently, directly opposing the Suns of those born after November 1st.  This will bring definite animosity and challenges from other people if you are not careful.  Be careful you don’t attract it by provocative behaviour.  Impatience from others and within you and over-reaction can be a problem.  Do your bit to calm things down, but healthy confrontation may clear some issues up.  Be prepared for other people not to let you get away with things.

Saturn however is very helpful now for those born November 9th to 13th.  He is bringing patience, deliberation, practicality, technical skill and common sense and the ability to step up to the plate and to do a job very well and to communicate with aplomb.

Uranus moves into your opposite sign of Taurus on the 6th where he will stay for approximately 7 years.  You had a hint of this in the summer and now you will understand the message.  For all born around October 24th/25th there will be the unexpected in behaviour or attitude from other people, which may feel unsettling.  Relationships become a source of unpredictability and this will last for maybe a couple of months and you may revisit territory from last year.

Your ruler Pluto however is in positive empowering mode for those born November 14th-17th. For you there maybe a sense of real insight and forensic skill, used to help self and others see a bigger and more empowering way ahead.

Finally Neptune is now acting as a real inspirer of ideal love and also very much in the arts and the heart is touched in a truly spiritual and compassionate way now if born November 7th –11th.


Focus is very much on domestic issues but beware that between the 5th and the 28th, when Mercury is retrograde in your Solar 4th House, that communications with family members can be problematic.  Delays, hiccups and misunderstandings are all possible.  Clarify.

Before the 26th however, you will benefit from the ability to combine charm with your mind, which will serve you well in negotiations and communications.

However, after the 26th, if born up to November 29th beware over-indulgence on the home front and in family matters.

Jupiter is very much a champion now for those born December 13th to 18th.  He is sitting exactly on your Suns which happens every twelve years, which brings joy, confidence, enthusiasm, travel, benefits, good luck and at the very least, massive protection.  And you feel good about yourself. 

Neptune however has now shifted degrees and is now squaring the Suns of those born December 7th to 11th.  For this group there is a need to be wary of over-idealism, seeing through rose coloured spectacles or more negatively selective perception of others and situations can mislead and also there is the potential for some deceptive circumstances generally around.  Tiredness is a possibility.  You need more sleep and to look after your body and keep it as pure as possible.  Music and the sea and communing with nature are your healers. 


The good new for Capricorn is that Uranus is finally leaving Aries and moving into Taurus on the 6th where he will stay for 7 years. 

For all born late Capricorn, around January 19th, the ongoing feeling of stress for the last few years and unpredictability and change is now going to finally settle. 

What early Capricorns you sensed last year is now finalising in terms of a sense of some peace.  Most directly affected now are those born December 22nd to 24th.  For this group a new sense of excitement and uniqueness about expressing your own individuality and having opportunities for appropriate positive change is yours.  Creatively and romantically this augurs well. 

Mercury being retrograde between the 5th and the 28th however does indicate that you all need to be aware of checking communications with other people to make sure there is no room for misunderstandings but delays in communications and messages can be problematic. 

After the 26th, for all born up to December 28th, your communications with other people are successful because they are pleasing and take into consideration their needs.  

Mars is also very constructive now for all born after December 31st.  Yours efforts at creativity are constructive and intelligent and driven wisely and your dealings in love life and with children are also effective and shrewdly determined.  Energy is good, strong and fortuitous. 

However, Saturn is sitting right on the Suns now of those born January 7th to 11th.  This is quite a big reality check and demands mature, grown up dealings with things that have to be dealt with.  Pragmatism is necessary, as is a mature, hard working understanding of the challenges and how to deal with them, but pace yourself. 

Pluto has moved forward now directly hitting the Suns of those born January 12th-15th. This is a period of destiny. There is a great sense of personal power that something you are meant to do is now at hand. Just ensure that your drive and ambition is one that is not for gratuitous power, bur designed for a bigger picture positive purpose for all involved.

It is also very possible that experiences undergone over the coming 2 years or so may well be life altering internally or externally or both. But no matter what, have faith that a phoenix will rise..
Neptune is currently affecting those born January 5th-9th.  This group will be sensing an increase in emotional reaction and it will be more important in many ways than what you just think.. Your heart is demanding to be acknowledged.  Your empathy and spirituality is strengthened and your creativity should be underlined.


Uranus, your ruling planet, having moved away from Aries into Taurus on the 6th, will bring for those born around January 22nd/23rd a period of some unpredictability and change and the unexpected is in the air.  You did feel this last year in the summer and early autumn and it is re-visited.  Don’t over-react and the unexpected on the domestic and home front is possible, but Uranus is the awakener and the enlightener, so he has a message and since he is a powerful player for you, this may well be quite significant and you yourself may be rather impatient and unpredictable as change calls.

 Between the 5th and 28th Mercury retrograde in your Solar 2nd House points to needing to be very careful about finances in terms of clarity and caution.  Delays are also possible. 

Before the 26th however, Venus in your sign all month is very positive for bringing joy, happiness, love, indulgence and some financial gain as well.  Your charisma is strong and people are drawn to you and appreciate your company.

However, Mars for all born after January 30th is in your Solar 4th House all month, which does imply that there will be some people who are not pushovers on the home and domestic front and definitely some domestic strife or irritability is possible.  Stubbornness will not help.  Rigidity and fixity, which can be part of Aquarius’s qualities, may need a little softening, but impatience is also part of the picture now.  You are, in many respects, a little like a bull in a china shop. 

Jupiter however is very helpful if born February 10th to 15th.  Friendships are very beneficial.  Travel is good.  Leadership skills are positive and group work is successful. 


The sun in your sign this month is reason to shine and to feel celebratory and Mercury is also in your sign all month, which does give communication skills.  However, because it is retrograde between the 5th and the 28th, you may find that some frustrations or delays in events and communication confusions are rife.  Have patience.  Take time out.  Let delays happen to re-think and re-evaluate some issues in your life. 

After the 26th, for all born up to February 25th, Venus in your sign does bring a boost to the affections.  You look good, you feel good.  Others want to spend time with you and your charms are shining, as are your specifically strong creative skills.

Mars is also supportive now, if born after February 28th.  He is giving intelligent guidance of action and your thoughts are constructive and positive and proactive as are your actions, which can bring intelligent success. 

Jupiter is squaring the Suns now of those born March 11th to 16th.  This can bring a tendency for over-confidence or over-reaching and sometimes a little arrogance, particularly on the work front.  Don’t overdo confidence and don’t bite off more than you can chew.

However, for those born March 7th to 11th Saturn is a steady hand.  He brings careful considered action, intelligent focus and hard work, pragmatism, practicality and loyalty and great work can be done in collaboration with other people.

Uranus’s move into Taurus on the 6th, where he will be for 7 years, is good news for all Pisces at some point over the coming 7 years and initially, now for those born around February 20th/21st?  New change.  New excitement. New authenticity is coming and you feel it.  Insights and eureka moments are yours.  Leap outside the box to show your true uniqueness and authenticity in a very positive way.

Neptune your ruler is now so powerfully sitting on the Suns of those born March 5th-9th. This once every 165 year hit will emphasise to the nth your Pisces qualities of idealism, creativity, spirituality and possibly escapism.

Keep your feet on Terra Firma.

As for Pluto, he is now enhancing the power, determination and confidence of all born March 12th-15th. Your ability to mobilise groups and give insightful advice, and also to be empowered by others is significant over the coming few years. Just ensure you are the agent, not the owner of the power.
