Sunday, 30 June 2019


It would seem that this month is indeed quite full on; in fact it is pretty intense in many ways globally.

Around the 13-16th The Sun opposes Pluto, indicating some explosive power struggles and rather knife-edge events, The period around the 9th –14th also, and around the last few days of the month are potentially also quite disruptive geophysically and geo politically. Eruptions in all forms are possible, as Uranus is very activated then. The unexpected is around and all these events are potentially connected to the USA (Cancerian country) and England is also in for a bit of a roller coaster of events as well (Capricorn country.) Earthquakes, metaphorically and literally are all flagged up.

 Brexit chaos of course, still dominates British politics..

Boris Johnson is the front-runner for the soon to be next Prime Minister, with his Sun and 3 personal planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars in Gemini, a Libra ascendant and Moon in Scorpio.  The dominance of Gemini makes him literally and metaphorically very obviously Mercurial in nature (i.e. hard to pin down) .His afflicted Mars in Gemini squaring both Saturn and Uranus is very notable for volatility, impulse, accident proneness in behaviour, unpredictability with careless action and careless words underlined as a tendency. What he says and what is accurate, or what he can realistically do, are often at loggerheads and he also has significant anger issues when thwarted in his ability to have the power he wants. This power is often limited and challenged powerfully by others (Saturn opposition Pluto in his natal chart). However his exact Jupiter opposition Neptune suggests he also has a fantasy level of what can be achieved, and presented with almost childlike optimism… especially around finances, which he is very unrealistic and cavalier about; both with his own and indeed with the countries.

His well aspected Moon in Scorpio gives him certain magnetism, insight into others and popularity, but his Mercury square Pluto, suggests ruthlessness in his attempts to force a point of view on others, whilst ignoring facts. Intellectual and ideological power struggles haunt him especially, again re finances. He also has a strong secrecy. There is coercion from or around others re many issues, especially, again, money. Strong sexuality is also a motivation in his life. His Libra rising blesses him with charm, (as does his Venus conjunct Mercury) and he has PR skills when needed; and he will try and please all with his generous words, rather than stick to a higher principle of truth or caution. He will always wait to see which way the crowd runs, and then determine himself to be its champion, in a populist way. His Moon in Scorpio however can make him caustic and sometimes almost cruel in others eyes, in his knee-jerk reactions and desire to speak a careless truth, as he sees it. This conflicts strongly with his Libra rising desire to be fair and charming. This conflict will, and always has, haunted him. .

Interestingly at the end of July, when final decisions are made as to the result of the PM vote, his chart has nothing particularly triumphant going on, but nothing particularly difficult either… but his Saturn will trine Jupiter and sextile Neptune then, which may be enough to swing it in his favour. He also has Uranus trining its own place then. Strong unavoidable reality checks however will then have to dominate his view of things, not least about the financial repercussions of Brexit.

September will be a tough month for him, no matter what, when Saturn sits on his IC. (Every 30 years).

His competitor Jeremy Hunt  (whom we have no time of birth for) is Sun and Venus in Scorpio, insightful and a need for power; and with his Moon in Mercurial Gemini (we do not know the degree).  His Mars in Virgo however concerns itself with care re facts and details, rather overlooked by Mars in Gemini (Johnson). His Mercury in Sagittarius trines Jupiter closely, which gives wisdom and a big picture outlook.  It is possible that Jupiter will oppose his Moon late month, (successful /celebratory), if he is born around midday, but whenever he is born, there is Uranus opposing his Venus all month (every 84 years and a protracted transit). This brings shocks and sudden changes in circumstances, but in what area of life we cannot know, without the time of birth. He also has in his birth chart, Saturn opposition Pluto, like Boris, which restricts and limits power in life.

Donald Trump has Saturn square his Jupiter before the 13th. He will feel very blocked from achieving his goals and will be obviously and maybe dangerously angry during that time, but it will be next January (2020), when he has truly challenging times in his career and life, manifested by the rare difficult transits of both Saturn and Pluto at work then..

The rise of populism and right wing authoritarianism is undeniably growing, splitting the world and populations in so many ways. Pluto (power, constructive or destructive) now in his last decan (10 degrees) of Capricorn (economic systems), finally is revealing what abuse of financial power and policy, and the resultant growth of extreme inequality can lead to, in terms of a general rebellion against a system.  That rebellion however in many ways, is being conveniently exploited and disingenuously hijacked by others, ironically for their own greed, gain and ego.

The result of Neptune in Pisces, since 2011 and recently, Uranus in Taurus since last year has put emphasis on climate crisis issues and the related state of our life-giving ecosystems and of our creatures, that share our planet. This however is also threatening our current predominant political and economic status quo, which as it is, is totally unsustainable.  However, growing consciousness of that reality is a reality too far for many of the stalwarts and gainers from our current system, and so it has become a serious focus of a fundamental ideological conflict. The planet and its politics are in an existential crisis, never seen before, as it is now global and essentially binary.

There are two eclipses this month, a total Solar eclipse on the 2nd falling at 10 degrees of Cancer. This can equate to the new and the regenerative.

The partial Lunar eclipse falls on the 16th at 24 degrees of Capricorn, (directly affecting Trump’s Saturn and Venus.) Total eclipses are often connected to harsh and rather primeval eruptions of the unconscious in a significant way, individually or collectively, or indeed both; and marks the harsh realities of situations and often endings.  It is like a full Moon on steroids.

Note to my readers.

I sometimes have readers commenting on how in some months, their birthday period in a specific sign is not highlighted in my monthly forecasts.

Sun sign forecasts are in fact extremely limiting, as the Sun is only one factor of many in your birth chart, and only your Sun position can be definitely known solely from just your birth date & month. The Sun’s 12-month orbit means it returns virtually to the exact same degree at the same time each year (your birthday) & hence basic Sun sign forecasting. In some monthly forecasts, your particular birth sign Sun degree is not necessarily being influenced by any planet & hence the lack of comment.

Without more personal specifics; year, place and & preferably time of birth, astrologers cannot make deeper comments regarding the other, very influential planets that comprise a full astrological birth chart (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto). These have hugely individual, varying orbits (unlike the Sun) & are exerting frequent, differing significantly powerful influences, which affect each one of your individual planetary positions at different times in your unique personal birth chart.

If you are interested in a detailed, personal forecast for a period of either 1, or 2 years, you can find ordering options on the services page of my website:

I would also need your name, full date, place & preferably time of birth & contact details, which you can send through my contact page.

There might be quite a lot of emphasis on the home front this month but from the 23rd all born up to March 28th can look forward to a little more fun and pro-life excitement.  

Before the 7th, if born March 21st to 24th, get whatever you need to do, done as soon as possible because on the 7th Mercury moves retrograde and things get blocked and delayed. 

Indeed, if born after April 14th, after the 19th there will be also frustrations.

Before the 3rd, if born after April 13th, your ability to communicate with heart and charm is strong, but after the 3rd you may find that your tastes are lavish and expenses over-reached.  Beware.  

After the 28th, however, if born up to March 25th positive, constructive creativity and fun and indeed love life blossoms. 

For all born up to April 10th, Mars is really activating your energy, both in terms of your passions, physically and creatively and you are really up for good times and constructively so.  You are competitive too. 

Jupiter is very much supportive now of those born 4th to 9th April.  There is confidence, ebullience, joy and romantic and creative energy abounds.  

However, beware if born April 6th to 9th, Saturn is on your case.  Blocks, restrictions, reality checks are around.  You need patience and maturity.  Do not kick the can down the road and look after your health.
Pluto is still a background challenge for those born April 11th –14th.
Power struggles manifest with others, that are actually fermenting within yourself.. Be honest about inner frustrations, and how you need to be constructive in dealing with changes needed… not least professionally.


Your mind is alert and sharp this month, but do be aware after the 7th if born up to April 24th, that communications can be particularly frustrated or frustrating and plans go awry, confusions reign, notably on the home front.

After the 3rd, Venus is very fortuitous for all of you in terms of being able to communicate in ways that really do show love and consideration and you receive the same. 

However, after the 28th, if born up to April 24th, things may not be quite so smooth.  

Mars, now in Leo will, for all born up to May 10th, be bringing impatience, irritability and some potential family arguments into the frame.  Impulse is advised against. You are a little bit a bull in the china shop. 

Saturn however, is a very good stabilising influence on all born May 6th to 9th.  There is care, practical skills, calm maturity, focus and discipline.  Not least in study and travel , which may have a dutiful element  

Uranus however is a very big player now being in your sign and is directly hitting all born April 26th to 28th.  The unexpected is in the air, a desire for freedom and element of awakening and enlightening through some shock a volcanic sense that change is needed or is imposed upon you.  Don’t push the river.  This influence will be with you on and off until about June 2020.  Change will happen in its own time, but change there is.

 Neptune is still enhancing the consciousness of those born May 7th-10th. Extra empathy and emotional purity is showing. You need nature, simplicity and the arts    and your good heart will shine.

Pluto is empowering the energies and psyche now of those born 11th-14th. Your wisdom and big picture insight is giving you strength, even in challenging circumstances. Use your increased power and insight wisely and it will serve you admirably… and give you courage.


Your ruler Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th, which does imply that you may find that certain communications and plans definitely are not so straight forward, so what you can achieve before then is advisable, including financial transactions.  

Venus in your sign before the 3rd directly affects all those born after June 17th.  This brings harmony, love, affection and peace to your door.  

Mars in Leo from the 1st is very constructive for all born up to June 11th. The power of your communications is notable and positive, determined and successful and your drives are well thought through.  

Jupiter in your opposite sign now of Sagittarius is directly opposing the Suns of those born June 4th to 10th.  This brings a potential for over-confidence and over-reaching.  It is good, with some moderation, for travel and expansion but beware of other people persuading you to stretch your resources or generosity more than is wise.  

Neptune is currently squaring the Suns, which he has been for a few months, of those born around June 9th to 11th.  There is a potential for some deceptive circumstances around you or some self-deception, but more importantly, this is a time where idealism, and emotionalism is getting stronger in your life and Geminis are particularly rational, so this can be disconcerting.  Certain things are dissolving, but this issue needs attention in order to balance your view of life. Work issues may have an element of shades of grey and uncertainty, either from within yourself and your attitude of because of external confusing events. 


Your month, so time to shine and certainly after the 19th for all born after July 16th there is a great sense of intellectual astuteness and a desire to communicate, but you must listen too.  

After the 3rd and before the 28th, all of your will have Venus passing over your Sun at some point which will bring a lot of love, harmony and a sense of balance and creativity into your life.  

Saturn, however, is currently opposing the Suns of those born July 8th to 11th.  This is a repeat of what you were experiencing in February time and it can bring some stress and strain and challenges re relationships.  Other people are behaving like school teachers, maybe benevolently so, but reality checks and others are certain and make you stop and re-think many things, not least in your personal relationships, but hard work and loyalty may be necessary and stepping up to the plate may be what is needed, but a focus on realities is essential, even if it means some blocks and delays. 

Uranus is currently however very positive in terms of its potential for liberation or the beginnings of liberation, for those born around June 27th to 29th.  Uranus sextiling your Sun is definitively bringing an awakening and enlightening and a desire to leap in to a more liberated future for self and others.  

Neptune is seriously still inspiring those born July 10th to 12th.  Emotions, sensitivity, compassion, the arts must figure and travel is lagged up and being near the sea is healing.

Pluto however still wading through Capricorn is now opposing the Suns of those born July 13th-16th.. This protracted transit is rare and once in a lifetime. It can manifest in s3everal ways, but certainly powerful individuals and egos may be up for a power struggle or indeed you may be up for that yourself. .. Keep excessive ego at bay, and do not sink to abusive levels of confrontation, even if others do to you.. If necessary draw boundaries and walk away.. However if your motive and cause is good and pure, you may need to maintain your courage and stance. Endings are in the air, literal and metaphorically…. This is a powerful transition in life, somewhat fated and is still mid journey. Avoid dark people and circumstances, if you can.

The solar eclipse of the 2nd will impact those born around July 3rd. This can create a sense of the beginning a new and positive chapter. It is a time of positivity.


Mercury in your sign before the 19th, moves retrograde on the 7th, suggesting that you will all need to attend to issues that need sorting out before that date, otherwise if you wait, delays and confusions are inevitable, particularly if born very early Leo, after July 23rd until 27th. 

Before the 3rd, if born after August 19th working in collusion or in charge of others for a cause, is successful and friends and connections bring happiness all round. 

After the 28th, if born up to July 28th, there is a real feeling of a bonus and a boost to your sense of well being and also to your ability to give and receive love and you look and feel good. 

Mars moves into your sign on 1st, directly impacting all born up to August 12th.  This will really fire you up in terms of ambition, drive, competitive spirit and determination. Ensure that is stays constructive and positive and not over-assertive, otherwise you can attract some people who may want to block you, but you must focus your drive intelligently and acknowledge it. 

Jupiter is very positive now for all born August 6th to 11th.  Trining your Sun now, indeed as he did last January/ early February, and so he is bringing optimism, positivity, hope, travel and a surge in love life and creativity.   

Uranus, currently, is directly affecting those born July 29th to 31st.  This once every 42-year square is bringing a bit of a sense of a shake up or uncertainty, connected possibly to career issues.  Be patient.  This lasts and will take its own time to resolve. 


Social life may be rather full on this month in a positive way and after the 19th, all born after September 17th, may find that communication with friends is valuable and the ability to organise group activities is underlined. 

After the 3rd and before the 28th, you will all find that social life peaks and love and harmony with others shine and your ability to work for ideals and causes that are not just personal also is underlined. 

Jupiter is squaring the Suns of those born September 6th to 12th.  This indicates a desire for expansion, indulgence and maybe a touch of over-confidence.  Reach for what you want by all means but don’t over-reach. Moderation may be necessary.

Saturn however will, for those born September 8th to 11th, so virtually the same group; act as a good stabiliser, bringing pragmatism and practicality and common sense to the fore.  This can therefore be a well-balanced and progressive period.  

Uranus is now very positive for all born August 29th to 31st, which will last one and off until March 2021, and will be an intelligent liberator in your life.  It is good for unexpected events to do with other countries and insights philosophically, in wisdom and legally. It just awakens you to a more exciting innovative future and sense of your unique self.

Neptune however is now opposing the Suns of those born September 11th-13th. This is an indicator of potential for projecting onto others what you want to see, to suit you desires. Be realistic and also avoid being caught in a web of deceit by others, even though it may not be intentional Positively, indulging in nature, the arts , music and being near the sea can all be very healing and inspiring  and your compassionate heart is powerful, just beware it does not overwhelm you and allow you to be taken advantage of .

Pluto however is so empowering and emboldening now for those born September 14th-17th. In love life, and in creative feats and in living life to the full generally, you are now empowered. Your will and courage is strong, and so long as your motive is regenerative for all, this is a significant and successful time, internally psychologically and so externally too.


You may a little internally conflicted this month because the sign of Cancer, where the Sun is most of the month, is square to your own sign, but nothing significant.  

After the 7th when Mercury moves retrograde, many of you will feel a little frustrated as events get held up and progress is blocked, notably after the 19th if born after October 17th, especially in professional issues. 

Before the 3rd, there is a brief window for all born after October 19th for a particular sense of harmony and it augurs well for international and legal issues.  

After the 28th, if born up to September 28th, friendships are a particular bonus in life.

Mars in Leo will be constructive at some point in the month for all born up to October 13th.  There will be a drive, leadership ability, a determination and sense of intelligent action to achieve. 

Jupiter is also bringing for those born October 7th to 12th a sense of wisdom and confidence, which may be needed, because Saturn is simultaneously challenging the energies of those born October 9th to 12th.  Domestic blocks, restrictions or limitations or lower energy may be haunting you for a while, but Jupiter will act as a protection. 

Finally, Pluto is currently and has been on and off for some time, squaring the Suns of those born October 14th to 17th.  You are in the middle of a long journey, which by now you will be aware of since the end of 2018 and it will not be really completed until the end of 2020. This is a transition and an internal power struggle inside, which although is ultimately empowering, it will also involve some inner investigation of quite a profound sort.


This is the month for travel for Scorpio with the Sun in your Solar 9th house.  It is also good for study /academia and philosophical issues too. 

After the 19th, if born after November 15th, internationalism and academia is extra highly focused, but because Mercury is retrograde, delays in travel may be a possibility. 

After the 3rd, you will all at some point during the month be able to combine love with higher learning, travel and have a sort of philosophical pleasure in relationships.  

Your thinking is grounded and practical of necessity and very constructive for self and others.  It is also very good for addressing detailed and demanding intellectual work.

The planet Uranus now in your opposite sign of Taurus is in his once every 165 visitation of opposing the Suns of all born October 28th to 30th.  This is going to be on and off until late 2021, bringing disruptive energies connected to relationships.  Other people’s unpredictability or desire for freedom or desire for change can impact you quite significantly. This can be positive or it can be upsetting, but it is a catalyst for change in your life that is meant to be.  Uranus awakens and enlightens and this may be channelled through other people. 

Neptune is beautifully inspiring still, both creatively and emotionally and indeed spirituality for those born November 9th to 11th.  Enjoy.

Pluto, your ruling planet is now in a positive angle to the Suns of those born November 12th-15th. This enables a sense of constructive and intelligent, objective empowerment in all matters to do with thought insight and all forms of communications. Profounder wisdom is yours now and it is insightful and healing for others.


Mercury is retrograde after the 7th so many of you will need to be aware that communications can go awry after that point, so get as much organised as you can before that date and this may also affect finances and travel issues which may not be straight forward.  

Before the 3rd, if born after the 17th December, relationships can really flourish and after the 3rd finances can be benefited to some degree as well.  

After the 28th, for all born November 23rd to 26th, positive travel is flagged up and love and internationalism can go hand in hand.  

Mars is in Leo all month, bringing for all born up to December 11th a surge in determination, ambition, energised study and again travel is particularly emphasised in a positive and constructive way.  You are a force to be reckoned with which is very constructive and creatively so as well. 

Jupiter, still in your sign, is excellent now for all born December 5th to 10th.  As last February, there is a boost to your confidence, your belief in self, advantages through travel, and opportunities, for growth and optimism.  

However, Neptune is still squaring the Suns of those born December 10th to 12th.  This long, protracted transit is a journey that is meant to be a gradual melt down of the old and birth of the new and although confusing and often disorientating, it is taking you to a new place that is necessary. In the meantime don’t be too idealistic, keep grounded but trust the trade winds. 


Relationships are flagged up as significant this month with the Sun being in your opposite sign (relationship area) but you will need to be very careful after the 7th, and particularly after the 19th that with Mercury retrograde, communications can lead to misunderstandings, notably if born after January 14th.  

After the 3rd you will all however benefit from the affections and the love and goodwill of others in your life; and what you give comes back, like bread cast on waters, as Venus travels your solar 7th House.  

Saturn is still in your sign, where he has been since the beginning of 2018 and he is now directly impacting the charts of those born January 6th to 9th, as he did last February.  Once again you are faced with reality checks about yourself and your structure in life.  You need rest.  You need to be aware of limitations and facts and realities, but hard work and focus is going to be needed.  Saturn is a karmic schoolteacher.  You need to learn his lessons, but the hard work that you put in and the lonely road it feels to be at the time, does pay off in the future, but take time out for rest. 

Uranus is excellent energy now for those born around December 28th to 30th.  This rare transit of trining your Sun is liberating; creatively, romantically and in terms of exploring life.  The main focus will be allowing your unique individuality to shine and awaken you to future potential.  Change is good and you can build a bridge from the old to the new and you have a few years to do this.  

Neptune too is very positive and inspiring if born around January 8th to 10th; emotionally, spiritually and creatively. You need to acknowledge the power of your heart 

Pluto is currently still in your sign of course (till 2025) and is currently directly conjunct the Suns of those born 11th- 14th.

For this group this energy is around on and off till the end of next year. This once every 248-year hit brings a great sense of destiny in life. Events will test you for the wise use of power and also test your ability to handle the power of others and indeed significant events. Endings are in the air, with a sense of a new chapter to be understood. Provided you know your motives are spotless, you will ultimately in some way be significantly empowered by this.  There is a lunar eclipse on the 16th, directly affecting those born around January 15th. This may be a day of some intensity and when eruptions arise from the unconscious from you or others, revealing some stuff that needs addressing.


After the 7th Mercury moving retrograde demands extra care in communications at work and patience.  Blocks and restrictions and delays are in the ether. 

Before the 3rd, if born after February 15th love life and creativity gets a bit of a boost.

After the 28th , for those born January 21st to 25th, relationships can bring blessings and others’ affections inspire you. 

Mars is in your opposite sign all month, directly affecting all born up to February 9th.  At some point all of you during the month may feel the impact of other people’s assertiveness towards you, which may be disconcerting, but you are also assertive in relationships and as a result there can be some feeling of diamond cutting diamond.  Compromise may be necessary, but other people are no pushover.  

Jupiter is advantageous now to all born February 3rd too 8th.  Your goals are enhanced.  Collective work towards a project is encouraged and positive.  Anything that allows you to be expansive and explorative and successful is within your grasp through intelligent action.  

Uranus is squaring the Suns of now in his once every 84-year transit. This will directly affect those born January 26th to 28th.  As Uranus is your ruling planet, this is strong.  Changes domestically or family wise are in the ether.  This two-year transit is likely to bring some disruption and unpredictability, but by your nature, it is something that you are used to and your own uniqueness and individuality will triumph out of a time that is rather unpredictable, but it will awaken and enlighten.  


Creativity is very much flagged up this month.

After the 7th, when Mercury is retrograde, communications with offspring and in love life may need double-checking, as misunderstandings are very possible. 

After the 19th, if born after 14th March communications can be very significant, but care in needed in the way it’s delivered. 

After the 3rd, all of you will have Venus going though your Solar 5th house, which gives a huge boost to creative and artistic pursuits and love life also is very favoured, as are connections with children. 

Jupiter is bringing a tendency for all born between March 4th to 9th, to be rather extravagant or over-confident, particularly in work or business. Don’t over-reach or be presumptuous about outcomes. 

However, Saturn is simultaneously a good check on the energies of those born March 6th to 9th.  This constructive angle to your Sun is allowing a grown up care and caution in your dealings, which will bring a successful period, as Jupiter will work well, but Saturn will bring caution.  

Uranus is in sextile to the Suns of those born February 25th to 27th.  This rare relationship is exciting, individualising, bringing intuition, allowing you to see outside the box and is liberating in your journey through life. A big picture understanding of self and others helps you move forward. This two-year transit is positive on so many levels. 

Neptune, still sitting on the Suns of those born March 8th to 10th continues to inspire the creative and emotional and intuitive side of your being.   This once every 165-year visitation can work in several ways. It can make you too idealistic, sensitive and therefore escapist and it can also, bring self deception and rose coloured spectacles and even a sense of being all at sea and even misguided in your generosity. Positively it can inspire your spiritual and even psychic gifts and can bring huge compassion and empathy, as your heart and soul are at peak sensitivity.. Consequently it can also of course, bring great creative/artistic /musical inspiration of a very unique and powerful sort.   The sea and nature can be a powerful input in your life.

Pluto however is in very empowering mode now for those born March 11th-14th. He is bringing a sense of being able to act and work with insight and intensity to fulfil your own goals or indeed to be able to work for the greater good of others, as well and in a potential leadership role.  Insight and intelligence is yours, as is a constructive determination. The time is right to pursue the goals you value. Just ensure motive is always genuinely for the greater good.
