Mercury now direct will at the least help us to make some progress in all our lives, but Mars is stubbornly still in walkabout mode till the 29th … so much is on hold globally not least the uncertainty re the Brexit/Remain referendum in the UK. From late May, Mars returned back to Scorpio and continues in that sign till early August This is a quite ruthless position potentially and the power of it can be used for great good or great ill, depending on motive.. Motive is everything in life. However from the 29th there will be more security at the least of knowing where we stand in certain areas.
The tone of debate in Britain (and globally) will be increasingly adversarial/bitter and plain nasty, without moderation in mood as the battle between the in and out lobby intensifies throughout the month and even after the result is known. Mars (now seethingly retrograde till the end of this month and made more intense and ruthless being now in Scorpio) is England’s ruling planet (Aries rising) so the bitterness and divide between the warring factions will not abate and in fact the potential fallout will be ugly and reverberate with unpleasant results till at least early August. Indeed globally there will be a sense that there are no limits to the potential intensity of the unpleasant in human behaviour, but with courage there will also be those who can fight for transformation and healing for the common good. Mars in Scorpio can be saint or sinner in manifestation.
England’s chart (25 December 1066, Midday) is indeed currently undergoing a real uncertain shake-up where the unexpected, rebellious and unpredictable reigns. i.e. Uranus , crossing the ascendant, (every 84 years). Also Pluto is conjunct its Mercury more or less all this year and next, (every 248 years) and that too signals a dramatic revolution and endings of chapters and certainly ideological fights to the metaphorical death. Mars is also currently opposing England’s Neptune. Smoke and mirrors and lack of clarity of facts and subterfuge rules. Even astrologers dare not predict outcomes with Uranus around (the phrase “predicting Uranus” is an oxymoron) but for good or ill, change is coming and not necessarily from the direction one expects and even if the “remain” school of thought wins, the cat is out of the bag in terms of dissent and almighty ideological power struggles, which will fester and cause much chaos and unrest.
The British stiff upper lip will not prevail, with Uranus so huge in the mix. The fact is that globally there is a growing anger and rebellion against the establishment. Even the establishment is rebelling against the establishment. (And the establishment elite is getting as increasingly invisible as it is powerful) Events in the UK will be very unsettling over the next year, with no room for complacency The assumptions we make about our stability and calm will be severely challenged.
The mitigating factor, if any, re the referendum, is that Jupiter will conjunct the Saturn and trine the Mercury of England’s chart, suggesting that some wisdom will prevail in the result on the day.
Days that are difficult are the 3rd-4th when the Sun and Venus opposes Saturn and also when Venus squares Neptune on the 3rd,, when smoke and mirrors are also around. Mercury opposes Saturn on the 20th/21st and deceptiveness and uncertainties are also in the air too then, when Mercury squares Neptune.
More upbeat constructive days are around the 12th/ 13th when the Sun and Venus sextile Uranus and late month when Mercury trines Pluto and Venus trines Neptune.
The Moon is new on the 5th at 14 degrees of Gemini and the Moon is full on the 20th at 29 degrees of Sagittarius.
Focus is on communications and the power of conscious mind is a focus this month much of the month and before the 12th finances will also be a focus of thought. Before the 17th all will benefit by added heart to brain. After the 17th all born up to April 5th may be a little self indulgent and extravagant re home and family.
Mars still in Scorpio and retrograde will also bring a sense of a need for privacy and depth of intensity re emotions and intimacy and also complex finances can preoccupy and frustrations can abound in this area and ruthlessness from self or others especially in finances are a possibility… After the 29th, there will be some clarifications and progress in financial areas.
Saturn is cooperative now, if demanding, for those born March 31st-April 4th. Hard work, shouldering responsibilities and being very mature pays off. Long distance and academic and legal issues require focus, but deferred gratification will be the benefit.
Uranus is certainly stirring up the lives of those born April 12th-15th as Uranus brings a once every 84 year drive for freedom and change, and this may be thrust upon you.. Uranus awakens and enlightens, but a warning is to not be too impulsive and to not push the river… remain flexible and open, but with some watchfulness. This influence affects you on and off till next May, so see this as a journey for a while not an arrival.
Pluto is also bringing to those born April 5th-8th a sense (since January this year and till late 2017) a sense of confrontation with self and others as you struggle for liberation from the powers of the past. Emancipation / empowerment calls and may well be needed and destiny calls… but done calmly, quietly, humbly and with dignity and with as little coercion as possible.
Personal security and finances need organised attention, but before the 12th many of you born after the May 7th may find an intense need for communication and your pragmatic. However very significantly, Mars is now in your opposite sign of Scorpio and remains retrograde there till the 29th. Those most affected are born 13th-18th. For this group there will be a sense of aggression or passive aggression emanating from others or the world in general. Frustration by or from others is hard to shift and it will be important to be controlled but nit totally repressive of feelings or discomfort or anger or this can result in a seething quality of rage or internalise anger which equals depression.. Get feelings out calmly to the right person at the right time and in the right place or uncontrolled explosive outbursts can be damaging. Delays are inevitable and a sends of paralysis is around till the 29th.
Jupiter however provides comfort protection and opportunity for those born May 4th-8th.. This is a good time for celebrating life and love and enjoyment is in the air. Creativity and children are sources of joy and progress too. Happy travel may also flag up. At the least protection is around.
Neptune is pleasantly influencing those born April 30th-May 3rd and will be till February 18th. This brings idealism, emotional sensitivity and extra creative talents and empathy and support from friends.. It is also bringing a less materialistic stance in your life and the heart and the spiritual needs and values are stronger. Giving up ones ego on the altar of the greater good is an impetus. Music and film and the sea are sources of joy and peace.
Pluto is regenerative and empowering now to those born May 6th-9th. This once every 124 year angular relationship brings a fated sense of new opportunity for development related to higher learning, long distance issues or legal issues. A sense of destiny calls and courage and strength is given to believe in ones own potential.
Your birthday period is a time of new starts and a new birth of potential. . From the 12th all of you will feel at some point inspired to communicate and express oneself more than usual. Your mind is on overdrive but listen to others too. Before the17th Venus in your sign will bring for those born after May 29th a sense of increased attractiveness, lovingness and charm and creative gifts are enhanced.. Love can be in the air. Money can be freer flowing for some of you after the 17th.
Mars retrograde in Scorpio may be bringing issues at work that are frustrating and some health issues can reduce physical activity.
Jupiter may be tempting those born June 4th-8th to be a little over confident or over indulgent. Enjoy, but in moderation. Beware pushing your luck.
Saturn is quite challenging now for those born June 1st-5th, as he was last January.
There will be some blocks from others and reality checks to deal with and a necessity to rethink ideas projects and others. Tiredness and a need to look after one’s body is necessary. Things are onerous but you need to step up to the Saturn is a benevolent despot.
Uranus is stimulating a need to be authentic and more liberated and more maverick if born June 14th-17th… working with others for a cause you believe in can be really inspiring and your intuition is powerful now. Others are catalysts for growth and freedom and you are a catalyst for others now too,. You can start to really think outside the box. This lasts on and off till early 2018.
If born June1st-4th, career and public standing issues and possibly authority figures are things to be aware of in terms of potential confusions, deceptions and misunderstandings. Also there may well be a sense of over idealism and self-deception too. Keep grounded and get rest too. Escapism of a negative sort is very possible too and needs watching. There could also be a divine discontent with career and a need to more true to your heart and ideals may be a driving force behind any discontent.
The new Moon on the 5th directly affects those born round June that day; a day for new beginnings. The full Moon on the 20th will impact all born round June 19th/20th.
For this group there will be a sense that others bring surprise and some sense of change to your door, that has the implication of an ending of a chapter..
Communication with others in a group or with friends is enhanced before the 12th if born after July 8th. After the 12th privacy of thought and communication is emphasised.. Behind scenes issues are important to deal with.
Venus after the 17th brings for all born up to July 7th a feeling of warmth and affection from self is strong and is received from others. Your natural charisma is enhanced and love life can be stimulated. Creativity is also enhanced. Mars is currently in positive relationship to the Suns of those born after July 15th. This can really stimulate the power of passion and artistic /creative drives. Your determination and courage is strong, but your actions and those of others that are in your life however may be subtle and indirect and after the 29th, the results and real meaning of these passions manifest…
Jupiter is a support now if born July 5th-9th. It brings extra wisdom and enhanced communication skills. People listen to you and this is good for travel locally or long distance. There is intellectual luck and good news in the ether. This brings opportunities to grab …. a feel good factor.
Uranus is continuing till early 2018, to be a tad disruptive to those born July 15th-18th. Changes at work or a sense of uncertainty about your career direction is in the air .. The innovative will be born as a result of this journey.. if in the eight direction you will be safe on your path despite stormy weather, if not in the right place for you , change will evolve of necessity… it is a journey . Hold tight and see where it takes you.
Pluto more profoundly is directly affecting still those born July 7th-10th till the end of next year. This is a time of potential power struggles and you need to stand up with dignity and draw boundaries round dark influences and not be tainted by them. Face the dark, but move into the light. Endings of chapters are in the air and phoenixes can really rise from the ashes. Avoid and walk away from manipulative people with dark agendas and be very conscious of your own deep unconscious powers that can be abusive to others or attract those people who reflect this. That which we are conscious of, we can control; but that which we aren’t, controls us.
Being around others and working with them for a common cause is a feature of this month as are buoyant happy friendships. Beware before the 12th if born after August 9th, beware of not thinking before communicating especially at work and before the 17th if born after July 31st , sociability and love life is enhanced by your affectionate nature and charms.
Mars is a bit of a challenging influence now if born after August 15th. Being retrograde till the 29th there is a sense that you are feeling alone, frustrated and with inner anger and frustration re home /family issues. Paralysis of knowing how to move forward is in the air and a sense of thwarted anger as it is all so complicated. Fixity on your and others part is characteristic and impatience is your enemy. Be still and know that delays to action are right now. Huge inner stamina is yours however .. and spiritual growth is needed via reflection rather than through impatient direct action. Do not seethe as it damages the body. Let go and wait till late month when things ease.
For those born August 15th-18th.. Uranus is really inspiring you to wake up to new thinking, new travels, new beliefs and a need for new freedoms. Your intuition is in action and there is a sense of being able to think divergently in order to liberate yourself into a more appropriate chapter. Opportunities for travel and to study new and unusual areas (including metaphysical subjects) are likely. This lasts till early 2018 so there is a way to go.
Career is a focus this month, but before the 12th if born after September7th may find travel and travel plans and academic endeavours are much in your mind. After the 20th if born up to September 2nd social life takes on an increased energy and friends are there for you to talk to fruitfully and help you shine and after the 17th if born up to September 9th love life and friendships can be linked and social occasions are a real pleasure.
Mars in Scorpio again is certainly firing the passions of the forensic mind and researcher of those born after September 15th-and there is a sense of determination to get heard and any form of communications are vigorous, determined, constructive and powerfully effective, but the nature of Mars being retrograde also suggests that there is a feeling of not getting fully understood or listened to as proactively as you would wish. Intensity of communication however should not be underestimated.
Jupiter is very happily in your own sign now and currently gracing the lives of those born September 6th-10th. For this group, there is a distinctly upbeat feel to life. Confidence and growth, inner or outer, is in the air and travel too is underlined. Family issues also have a feel good factor and luck and protection is around.
By contrast Saturn is challenging those that are born September 3rd-7th.. There are some feelings of block and tiredness and there is also a need to face some facts that are difficult related to real estate or home issues. There is a need to review certain issues and rethink things that have met a blockage. Some issues mat catch up with you that are karmic in some way and are meant to be a learning curve… Delays need to be met with humility and a philosophical approach. Look after your body, as you are reminded that you are not getting younger. Pluto is also empowering those born September 8th-11th currently (till end of 2017). Confidence, courage and initiative taking, is within your power and it makes much possible creatively, romantically and in any issues to do with offspring. A new sense of courage, destiny and self-reinvention is yours.
Neptune is now also opposing the Suns of those born September 3rd –6th. This is a period till early 2018 and which brings danger of deceptive circumstances and behaviour from others and a tendency to be easily allured by others’ promises and appearances… Check the small print in all agreements and don’t believe everything you see or feel, as rose coloured spectacles are possibly dominating your perceptions. However this is brilliant for creativity, notably music and film. Beware seeming gurus..
Travel and academic concerns are in the forefront this month. All October born Libras may well feel before the17th, a strong pleasure re love and affections especially if linked to travel /holidays/long distance. Mars in Scorpio may put focus on finances in quite as assertive way.
Saturn is constructive if demanding for all born October 3rd-7th, serious mature and grounded pragmatic thinking is demanded and loyalty and duty is favoured possibly to siblings. There is also a more conservative instinct at play. Hard work now brings deferred gratification.
Uranus is currently opposing the Suns of those born around October 17th and this will be in the ether till aprox February 2018. There is a feeling that an unpredictable journey starting and sense of adrenalin and change coming from changing circumstance and change brought to life by others’ decisions actions. Keep adaptable and flexible and accept that this period brings a kick-start into a future that seems a bit daunting, but will ultimately be liberation, even if unnerving, as change happens. Change is inevitable so don’t fight it too much, but hang onto what you really know you need to and which is not just an old comfy slipper situation.
Pluto too is quite a big player now in the lives of those born October 9th-12th and this has been underway for a few months and stays in play till the beginning of 2018.
For this group there is a sense of some inner and outer power struggles. Family and domestic circumstances may be a sort of battle ground and one needs to be very conscious of past and its power of you and a conscious sense of controlling ones deep issues that are needing examination and understanding and so controlled well, to enable a new empowerment of the real potential within, without coercion, and without ruthless power struggles, but with calm, kind determination to do what will benefit your potential all round without damaging others.
Intimacy and complicated finances are a focus possibly in a very private way… After the 12th, all will find it very fruitful to choose to communicate fully with others in an advantageous way. After the 17th all born up to November 9th, may find that love and pleasure and sociability flourishes whilst travelling and in a long distance context and love of learning is underlined with love and learning also maybe mixed.
Mars is currently in your sign, a powerful influence notably now if born after November 14th. This brings power; ambition, determination and even an obsessive feel to behaviour. There is however an added dimension as Mars is retrograde now, so the determination and power is internalised and even quite seething in power and even rather indirect, or passive aggressive possibly in some way .. Patience is needed and it is important to be quietly patent with the frustrations and paralysis that seems to prevail until the 29th, when with relief moves forward and issues really start to manifest in a much clearer if dramatic way.
Neptune is very fortuitous now in a gentle way for those born 3rd –5th.. It brings idealism and empathy and the power of the heart /emotions to bear. It stimulates empathy as well as creativity and the arts and love of nature are enlarged in your needs and consciousness.. It is powerful for music and film and brings a real longing for a soul mate romantically and indeed children can be a source of great joy and inspiration. This once every aprox 82 years event downgrades the material and scourges the spiritual.
Pluto, your ruler is certainly powerfully energising in a very fundamental, positive way to those born November 7th-10th. Your thinking will be more profound and forensic than normal and deep serious truths will be confronted and looked into and conversations will be more intense and your words and communications are definitely more effective and far-reaching to others than usual. This lasts till early 2018, so be aware of its advantages. This is no time for superficiality, but intelligent insight and resultant power.
Relationships are very much flagged up and others are movers and shakers of your life and impact you significantly. And before the 17th all December born Sagittarius are also likely to be extra touched by romance; and enhanced affections to and from others in general.
Mars in your solar 12th house may be being some real private strength of feeling that can be resentment and pent up anger, which can be dangerous or even harmful. Internalised anger equals depression. After the 29th Mars goes direct, bringing much relief and clarity, possibly with some uncomfortable outcomes, but tension eases at least.
Jupiter is currently squaring the Suns of those born December 5th-9th. . Be wary of overconfidence or even arrogance or expecting too much of life or self especially related to career. A bit of caution and humility will server you well and then the best of Jupiter will show. Extravagance, especially re travel may be part of the picture.
Saturn still in your sign (for 2 and a half years in total) is now (as last January) is targeting those born December 2nd-6th. This causes a potential tiredness and need to tae extra care of the body. It can also bring negativity and reality checks and blocks and frustrations to progress too. A need to review and rethink is necessary and work done now and necessary reorganisation undertaken will serve you well in the future.. Saturn is a karmic schoolteacher and benevolent despot.
Uranus is however, for those born December 15th-18th, bringing a long period till early 2018, of new exciting change that bring a new dimension to your interests and your life potential. Hang loose and don’t be intimidated by new opportunities that seem quite left field. You are waking up to a new dimension, especially creatively, romantically and round children’s issues.
Neptune is currently squaring the Suns (every 82 years) of those born December 2nd-5th. a care is needed to keep grounded but realise a metamorphoses is underway till February 2018. You are floating from one phase of life and being to another without compass or oars.. All is uncertain, and uncharted.. This is meant to be a time to trust the trade winds, but not be over idealistic and escapist but allow your self to let go of some tight control. Learn to be a human being rather than just a human doing… You are vulnerable to some disillusionment, but this is because the path needs to change a little in order to meet your new sensitivities and emerging talent, which are likely to be creative or humanitarian and empathetic.
The Moon is full on the 20th directly affecting those born around December 21st. For these people, there is a sense of denouement and eruptions from others that point the way to a new chapter, sought after or not. The power of the unconscious will not be repressed. The new Moon on the 5th will impact those born round December 6th. This suggests m a fresh new chapter that may be triggered by the actions/words of another.
Work /routine and health may be important focus this month. Before the 12th all born after January 6th, may also be much preoccupied with artistic input in life and love life and offspring are a source of joy and you are in communicative, sociable mood. After the 17th all born up to January 7th will feel the power of others warmth and love very much enhancing life. Cupid is in the ether,
Mars strong in Scorpio now, is bringing to those born after January 12th a powerful sociable, influence and leadership skills.. Other people are facilitating your power because of their own strong position and your influence on others to work for a communal cause with determination is notable, but you are also till the 29th, aware of the frustrations within, as your power is somehow sabotaged, be patient as from the 29th, things really start to drive forward. You are no shrinking violet now.
Jupiter is your buddy now and supportive from Virgo, notably if born January 4th-8th.
This is an excellent time for teaching learning and all communications re the higher mind and academia and is very helpful for exams etc .. It also is very beneficial for travel and and legal issues.
Uranus is currently challenging the lives of those born around January 13th-15th. He is creating a sense of real restlessness and uncertainly re home /real estate /family issues. It is hard to settle. All is in flux and this will be around you till around February next year. The new and outside the box is in the air and a sense of a bit of an unknown future is around you. Keep adaptable as this is a journey that is as much an unknown quantity as anything else, and provided you are not impulsive or rash re change and because of your adrenalised state, it can really bring the new and the enlightening into your life.
Neptune is quite emotionally creatively and spiritually inspiring if born January 1st –4th for some time to come (early next year). You are thinking/feeling more with you heart now, than your head. You are very emotionally sensitive.
Finally Pluto is huge in lives now of those born Jan 6th-9th. Destiny and power of self and or others drives you now. Please be aware that you are not the owner, but the steward f the power and motive must be for greater good. Avoid coercion and abusive power, follow a responsible destiny and by the end of 2018 you will really know what it is all about.
A month for fun and enjoying life with creativity and romance underlined. Fertility/ artistic abilities can be strong. Also speculative instincts may be accentuated.. This is a month to develop any latent artistic abilities and to let you hair down a little with others. Children of mind and body can be a great source of fulfilment too. Extra extroversion is a quality that may surprise you now.
Mars however is a bit of a bogus figure now especially if born after February 12th.. Be wary of over assertiveness in career or stubborn intent that may be unwise. You are not in the mood to be flexible and it could be not a good stance, so too others could be causing you stress with their coercion and rather insidious controlling behaviour.. This energy can be quite seething and rather underhand and ruthless in self, or from others, so beware. Impatience and intransigence and obsessive qualities can be very counterproductive too and inner frustration/anger can affect your health. Authority figures should not be underestimated. Beware abusive power around you. After the 29th the outcomes of issues break through and it may be quite surprising.
Saturn is cooperative if stern now for those born January 31st- February 5th. He is demanding disciplined hard work, maturity and focus. Loyalty to friends and collective causes are underlined and you need to step up to the plate, which will serve you well if you do. Pragmatism and grounded ness serves you well now even if a demanding period, you rise to the occasion.
Uranus your own ruling planet is very much a positive player bringing out your Aquarian uniqueness, if born February 11th-14th.
You are able to think divergently and laterally and others bring awakening concepts to your mind, life and door and you are also a catalyst for awakening for others. The liberating is around and that suits you well and you maverick side is well directed now and this influence is every 42 years and lasts till around February 2018, so don’t rush the energy, but enjoy the journey.
Some energy may feel a little difficult round home and family /real estate and there is a need to focus on those areas in many respects, especially with real and clear communications before the 12th if born after March 6th. After the 17th all born up to March 7th have a boost to your natural creative skills and romance and good times are indicated.
Mars is also on your side now, even though retrograde till the 29th. He is empowering the higher mind and bringing energy, courage and determination to study, travel and ideological issues. You are a force to be reckoned with over your beliefs and your passions. However some of the energy is internalised till late month, so be careful about it s hidden internalised power.
Jupiter is currently bringing a temptation to indulge and lack moderation in many things, especially in relationships, if born March 4th-8th. Enjoy, by all means, but have some caution… and be wary of people promising more than they can deliver including yourself, but others from very different backgrounds and cultures can enrich your life now. Travel is flagged up too.
Saturn however is bringing some negative mood or block or lack of confidence now if born March 1st –5th. Work can be onerous or lacking satisfaction and this is a time to step back and see what changes need making and whether you need to rethink some goals and also to look after your body, as it needs more rest than usual. Humility, but not collapse of confidence, is needed.
However to compound the issue Neptune your ruling planet is never more powerful than it is now if born March 1st to 4th (every 165 years) This brings idealism (over idealism probably) and heart felt desires and even a great desire for escapism. This can make a simultaneous Saturn reality check difficult, but it is definitely a time to ask if you heart and soul and creativity is being expressed enough in life and if not, maybe you need to redress the balance.. Also it is possible that Saturn is ensuring that you are keeping sufficiently grounded and that you are not getting into dangerous Neptunian deceptive or over escapist or over idealistic territory.
Finally Pluto is very helpful and confidence bringing if born March 6th-9th. . You are getting a sense now till late 2017; of the destiny you can embrace when it comes to regenerating others and by so doing, your own life, by collective work with powerful others. Know your healing power!
