Jupiter now established in Scorpio for the coming year brings out passions in peoples’ knee jerk response.

The benefits of balance and predominantly rational thinking will be subsumed under the influence of the emotions. In positive mode, it Jupiter in Scorpio is good however for investigation and is especially progressive in medicine and investigation into the truth. Intense need for forensic investigation will predominate. Scandals and revelations may well be unearthed over the coming year that can be very decisive and difficult in their implications for people and organisations.

The Harvey Weinstein scandal/allegations are rather typical of this energy, especially as Scorpio is very connected to sexuality.

Passions politically and a desire for revenge may also dominate. In other words diplomacy (a Libra domain) will not be favoured necessarily, as much as an active reaction from a visceral, gut level that could be dangerous on an international level. Pluto rules Scorpio and Pluto of course is directly linked to huge power (Plutonium).

Jupiter in Scorpio can, when in negative mode, unleash dangerous, emotionally charged responses.

The world is developing in a direction that is more deeply rooted in nationalism and protectionism, as a direct reaction to what is deemed to be the downside of globalisation. The accepted concept of global shared power and international cooperation and diminished boundaries was very strong from when Pluto was in the internationally principled sign of Sagittarius (late 90’s-2009), but has been gradually undermined as nationalism/independence came on the rise, as Pluto shifted for the long haul into Capricorn (far more conservative, reactionary and self protective) in late 2009 and Uranus moved into Aries in 2010/11… Uranus (a rebellious need for change) in Aries (a need for independence and strong dislike of interdependence and quite politically extreme and a rejecting of the past) has been very much underlining the movements for separatism. This influence continues till March 2019. Jupiter now in intense Scorpio, will further this knee-jerk desire to fulfil emotional desires.

Right wing instincts are for protectionist nationalism, (Capricorn) whilst more left wing/liberal stances seem to favour internationalism and interdependence (Sagittarius)

Trump is now freed from the once every 30 year constraints and karmic learning curve of Saturn’s influence (strongly affecting his Moon and Sun over the last few months) This will now unleash a more uninhibited mood in his behaviour, but he has learnt a lot about the constraints of his position, which may create a reactive and rather bitter response, which will not be so inhibited by the powers of others around him now, especially between the 18th-20th, when Mars conjuncts his Jupiter. But he could also become master of his own downfall, as constraints are diminished or ignored. Jupiter squares Trump’s natal Pluto in late November, which is also very indicative of misuse of power and coercion, where ego is far more powerful than wisdom and which can feel very dangerously threatening to others who will likely respond ruthlessly too.

After the 18th of November there is a tricky period globally, when Mars squares up to Pluto, which can be very indicative of the use of ruthless, forceful and explosive power and then in late November/early December, Mars will oppose Uranus, which is eruptive geophysically. (Nature may not be kind, but why should it be?  We certainly have not on the whole been kind to it)….

 Also socio-politically, it is risky as impulse, irrational reactions are underlined..

Positively, for most of the month, especially in the first half, Saturn will trine up to Uranus.

This builds a bridge between the old (Saturn) and the new (Uranus). The essential need for change is not inimical to the past; and a bridge can be crossed between an age that is dying and the age that needs to come into birth. The conservative and the radical can find common ground somehow.

It is potentially positive for moves to favour environmental progress and can also possibly bring compromise politically re international independence versus international cooperation.  Optimism has to be kept.

The Moon is full on the 4th at the 12th degree of Taurus. A time of unconscious forces erupting that are somewhat untamed and truths will out, whilst the Moon is new on the 18th at the 27th degree of Scorpio. Initiation of the new and the determined is appropriate.


I am afraid there is no room to be superficial this month.  You need to deal with fundamental issues, but after the 5th, all of you will find communications very easy and travel and study issues are particularly well highlighted.  Your mind is very much more big picture in its thinking and wise.

Before the 7th, all born after April 10th will find that love and affection is more powerful and alive.  Harmony and charm prevail. 
After the 7th, things get a little bit more intense and private.

Mars in your opposite sign of Libra currently, is bringing for all born March 26th to April 15th the potential for some challenge from others.  People are not pushovers and it is important that you are not as powerfully assertive as you can be.  Others will not tolerate it, even those who are usually pussycats.

Jupiter now in Scorpio is forcing many of you to be more profound in your dealings and connections with others and complex money issues are flagged up in a positive way. 

Saturn is constructive for those born April 14th to 17th.  Duty and obligation is met happily.  Your maturity is respected and good foundations are being built, particularly with legal, academic and long distance issues. 

Still, Uranus is bringing for those born April 14th to 17th a feeling of change and restlessness that will not be completed until April 2018.  Hold on tight and don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. This is ultimately liberating.

Pluto also continues to challenge the lives, in some contexts, of those born April 6th to 8th.  Conflicts within and without are connected to finding your true purpose, identity and independence.  Be conscious of it and don’t abuse power or indeed let others do the same to you.  Draw boundaries.


Powerful influences from your opposite sign of Scorpio this month does emphasise very important relationship issues.

Before the 5th, for all born after May 12th, communications with others will be intense but constructive and after the 7th, for all of you, there is a feeling of the power of love, affection and harmony being dominate, thanks to Venus.

Jupiter, now in your opposite sign is bringing for all born April 25th to May 2nd a tendency to be extravagant and confident, especially in relationships.  Beware however of putting over-confidence in people, or letting them influence you too much towards indulgence, but a bit of caution, good times roll, as does some happy expansion. 

Neptune continues to inspire those born around May 1st to 3rd.  Ideals are strong and sensitivity, creativity and empathy are underscored.  Your emotions will dominate and good friends are empathetic and caring and your ability to be there to help others should not be underestimated.  Your psychic powers are also more active, particularly on and after the 22nd of the month. 

Pluto is continuing his very long slow trine of the Suns of those born May 7th to 9th,. This is very constructive and empowering for you, bringing a feeling of destiny and allowing you to find a sense of purpose connected to long distance issues, travel, academic issues and your insight and powers are definitely at work now in a very constructive way. 

The full Moon on the 4th falls on the Suns of those born around May 2nd- 4th, suggesting for this group, a period of some confrontations with truths and potential realisations that certain chapters need to close.


Emphasis moves away from work and routine and very much to relationships after the 5th for you all.  Communications with others can be very enhancing as are connections with others and a sense of articulate wisdom from you to others and visa-versa is in the air.

Before the 7th, all born after June 12th have fun, romance, creativity, both literal and metaphorical, very underlined.  It’s party time and dealings with offspring and the arts are successful and Cupid maybe on your case. 

Saturn, however, is bringing for all born June 16th to 19th, a challenge, possibly from other people.  Blocks , restrictions and limitations are haunting you, as is a bit of negativity of thought.  This is a time for maturity and focus and to accept reality checks and to build new foundations based on truth and facts.  Other people are either teachers or blocking you unnecessarily.  You have to decide which and deal with them accordingly.  Take it easy.  Look after the body and have patience, but hard work does pay off, as does being very grounded.

However, for this same group, Uranus is really helping you understand how you need to liberate yourself from problems that are not necessary.  There are two sorts of people in your life now; those who are awakening and enlightening you and catalysts for change and those who are blocking you and you need to focus on the former. 

For those born around June 1st to 3rd, Neptune is causing some confusion and rose coloured spectacles being donned, potentially about work or career.  Be sure that you check everything out for its validity.  Smoke and mirrors are in the air, but your emotions are powerful.  Keep grounded.  Communing with nature and arts are a good way of dealing with this transit. 


Focus on Scorpio this month, including Jupiter now in that sign is excellent for you.  It really brings a good boost for love life, creativity, the arts and children and offspring issues, noteably before the 5th

Writing and communications skills are seriously underlined for all born after July 14th

After the 7th, all of you are benefiting from Venus enhancing your creative gifts, fertility in general and your sense of love and enjoyment of life. 

However, for all born June 27th to July 18th Mars is bringing a note of caution on the domestic and family front as there are some people who are a little impatient or easily irritated and you yourself may be a little bit like a crab in a china shop.  Impatience and impulse is a danger, causing you to cross swords with others potentially. 

Jupiter, now is Scorpio, is particularly favouring those born June 25th to July 3rd.  He is really bringing luck and growth to your creativity, love life and general ability to make things happen that you wish for.  Opportunities and positivity and invitations abound and ability for living life to the full are yours. 

However, those born June 24th to 27th, are still sensing unpredictable change, as you will be until April 2018, with Uranus creating some disturbances, and insecurities and restlessness, notably on the work front or in terms of your status.  Change is destined to be in the air.  You need to go with the flow and be flexible.  This is a journey that continues for some time.  Watch it and know that it is eventually taking you into a freer, more innovative place that suits you better, despite some insecurity that you feel along the way.

Neptune, however, is very enhancing of the spiritual, creative and emotional positive aspects of your life if born around July 3rd and 4th.  Travel and study is inspiring and anything to do with your dreams or your spiritual sense of journey is happily fulfilling.  Music, the film world and the sea can all prove more significant than usual, notably after the 22nd, when Neptune goes direct. Your empathy and compassion will become even stronger than usual and needs acknowledgement.

Finally Pluto is still opposing the Suns of those born July 9th to 11th.  This long journey of Pluto will be over by the end of the year and it has brought for this group a real feeling that other people have been pitting their wits, in possibly a rather ruthless way, against you and you have been asked to stand up and draw boundaries round unreasonable behaviour and not respond in the same way.  Endings of chapters are in the air but remember Phoenix’s rise out of the ashes.  Sometimes we have to go through the dark to get to a very empowering light. 


Domestic and home issues dominate the month, but possibly with a self-indulgent theme. 

Those born July 27th to August 4th are now feeling the effects of Jupiter in Scorpio in square aspect to yours.  This does bring potential indulgence and extravagance and possibly a sense of entitlement or over-confidence. However it doesn’t stop you enjoying yourself, but one needs to be a little careful of careless over-the-top behaviour that may prove counterproductive

However, after the 5th, most of you will be aware of an ability to express yourself well and to use communication skills to your advantage, particularly creatively. 

Before the 7th, all born after August 13th, have a certain charm that is effective and you bring affections together with your intellect.   This is particularly good for dealings with siblings.

For all born July 28th to August 18th, there is a sense this month of constructive efforts and constructive communications and the ability to herd cats in terms of your persuasive efforts.

Saturn is also constructive for a short time for those born August 17th to 21st.  He is forcing this group to be very grounded and sensible, loyal and dutiful and that hard work now brings deferred gratification, which is worth working for.  Maturity is necessary. 

Also this same group simultaneously have a feeling of a new start with enthusiasm for change, excitement, innovation and a big picture understanding that takes away from subjectivity and egotism.

So if in this group of Librans, you are particularly growing in wisdom and awareness this month.  Not least about universal or existential issues and issues to do with other countries and legal issues can somehow be liberating. 


Your mind is particularly forensic and sharp in communications even in your quiet times.

Before the 5th, all born after September 14th are right on the money in terms of your insight and communications. This is excellent for writers/journalists. 

After the 22nd all of you will also be benefiting from the ability to speak and write with great charm and love and to combine heart with mind. 

Jupiter in Scorpio is good news for your sign and this month all born August 27th to September 4th will be feeling an extra boost of confidence, joy, happiness and sense of success, with positive optimistic input from self and others, particularly on the domestic front. 

However, those born around September 18th to 21st are feeling the impact of Saturn, as indeed you did last November.  Issues to do with family, real estate or domestic concerns feel blocked, restricted or burdensome.  Duty is in the air, as is obligation. Delays are designed to make you re-think and to exercise your patience.  Do not let anxiety and fears dominate.  There is a reason for this lesson.

Neptune is opposing the Suns still, as he has been on and off for some longs months, of those born September 3rd to 5th.  Be wary of self-deception or deception from other people.  Check out small print.  Ensure you can trust others and that you are not seeing them through rose tinted spectacles.  Escapism and idealism is strong, but being near the sea and having music around you is calming and having empathy and compassion is also underlined, but keep it in proportion. 

Finally, however, Pluto is until the end of this year, and has been for nearly two years, empowering those born September 9th to 11th.  He brings a sense of power and confidence, creatively in love life and empowers your ability to show what you’re made of.  Shyness has been replaced by a belief in you.  Enjoy.


Focus on finances will do you no harm and indeed your ruling planet Venus after the 7th, in your solar second house can bring advantages from such a focus. 

After the 5th, all of you will benefit from enhanced intellect and communication skills and wisdom of thought. 

Mars is in your sign this month, directly impacting all those born September 28th to October 19th.  Extra energy, psychologically, spiritually and physically is yours.  Used constructively it can make you achieve a lot.  However, there is always a danger of tipping over into over-assertiveness or even slightly aggressive behaviour, even in your very charming way.  Positively it gives courage and determination with constructive outcomes.

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is, if anything, enhancing the safety of finances, but it is not directly involved with your Solar sign, by aspect.

Saturn is constructive now, if born October 18th to 21st.  He brings stability, hard work and discipline and maturity to your approach to life, particularly in your thinking and perceptions.  Hard work and duty will pay off.

This is just as well as the same group have Uranus opposing your Suns, which happens only every 84 years and this has been going on since April of this year and is not over until April of next year.  This influence is disruptive.  Other people are unpredictable. You are excitable and impulsive and relationships can create some chaos, but right now Saturn is calming things down and giving you wisdom and balance.

Pluto is also finalising his long journey of challenge to those born October 10th to 12th.  Domestic issues and family issues are challenging.  Struggles have been in the air – deep routed and profound; and this is about your emancipation, liberation and desire to be true to you.  By the end of this year, the final chapter will be evident. Just be conscious of the power of your own inner core at this point. Manage it consciously.


Your month indeed. 

Before the 5th, all born after November 14th are particularly articulate and insightful, but do listen to the other guy and don’t dominate the conversation.

After the 7th, all of you will benefit from extra charisma and charm as Venus travels through your sign.  Creativity is also inspired, as is love.

Jupiter now is very welcome to your sign for you; and those most benefiting directly this month are those born October 27th to November 4th.  For this group, blessings are in the air, luck, bonuses, confidence, travel and wisdom.  Good times.  Just don’t go over the top.  With some modesty you can really shine and benefit, Good opportunities abound, notably potentially financially. 

Neptune is also extremely inspiring now for those born around November 3rd to 5th.  The creative world, the music world, the film world, the world of nature and spiritual issues can all inspire; and with Jupiter being a simultaneous influence, this can be a very inspiring period, particularly creatively and to do with offspring and idealism in love life.  Your heart centre is strong and in an uplifting way.

Pluto, your powerful significant ruler is in his last lap of his very long transit of empowerment to the Suns of those born around November 9th to 11th.  By now, many of you would have sensed over the last nearly two years a feeling of finding your true strength, courage, insight and purpose.  Your mind is enhanced with more forensic understanding than several years ago and a sense of destiny has been established.
The new Moon is in your sign on the 18th affecting all born around that date,  is bringing for them a useful period to initiate the new and to sow seeds for the future.


It’s a time to shine, notably for all of you after the 5th when Mercury moves into your sign, bringing extra sharp intellect and communication skills, but the danger is that you need to recognise that you should not dominate the conversation and you can learn from others too.

Before the 7th, Venus is bringing for all born after December 12th happiness and progress and benefits from friends and from groups and from leadership skills.  Doors can open in social circles.  Love and friendship can combine. 

Mars is also friendly now towards those born November 27th to December 17th.  He too will be bringing determination, constructive activity and you are able to really organise groups with effective leadership and your work and energies are intelligent and receive admiration.

Saturn however is still in your sign, but you will be happy to know that he leaves and moves into Capricorn on the 20th of next month.  For now however, those affected by Saturn’s imprint are those born December 16th to 19th; and indeed as last May/June, you will be feeling a sense of restriction, block, maybe even some negativity and you need to look after your health because you recognise that you’re not getting any younger.  This is definitely a time of re-think and patience and reality checks, but hard work will pay off, provided you know you are knocking on the right door.

However, and very fortunately, this same group have Uranus inspiring you simultaneously and making you recognise that you are working for a greater freedom for the future.  You are inspired to know that the work that you are doing now is somehow a catalyst for the change and freedom that you crave; and you are seeing the big picture with greater understanding, particularly creatively and in love life, and by April 2018 you will indeed feel a great sense of liberation achieved..

However, Neptune is still rather hauntingly and confusingly affecting those born around December 2nd to 4th.  This has been dogging many of you since April 2016 and is nearly through with his mission; and indeed by next year you will have come out on the other side of the fog, the confusion and uncertainty; and by trusting the trade winds, you will realise it has taken you to the right place, but don’t push the river in the meantime.


Friends and groups and goals figure strongly this month. 

Before the 7th, if born after January 11th, there is a need to be a little cautious about being sycophantic to others in order to gain approval, but charms won’t go far wrong, provided you have moderation. 

However, after the 7th, all of you will gain much from friends and working with others. Love comes your way and you give affection and support in a way that is effective and healing for others; and love and friendship can combine.

If born December 26th to January 16th, there is a slight warning that Mars in the square sign of Libra to your sign, there can be some impatience and irritation with or from colleagues.  Don’t be too pushy or ambitious and remember to use your diplomatic skills wherever you can.  Impatience will not help.

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is very positive for your sign and those benefiting this month are those born December 25th to January 2nd.  Once again, friends are particularly favourable to you and lucky and doors open and other people who come into your life can be catalysts for growth and change and your confidence is strong and your leadership skills are underlined.  Bounty is in the air, as is travel.

However, Uranus is still bringing some disruption and uncertainty and a bit of unsettling adrenalin to the lives of those born January 15th to 18th.  This long transit is actually designed to liberate, to take you out of ruts, but possibly some domestic instability can be unnerving.  By April 2018 this will be over and the result will be change, but a simultaneously a certain liberation, even if it has felt a rocky road.

Neptune has been inspiring and continues to be for those born around January 1st to 3rd.  You are in the final chapter of having felt (for a round a year now) inspiration connected to your emotional liberation, your sensitivity and your creativity and also your empathy and compassion has been underlined and it has taken you away for the material to a more spiritual dimension, which has been very positive for your whole being.  This has actually been true since aprox. April 2016.

Finally, Pluto is still, and will be until the end of the year, bringing an intensity of experience to those born January 7th to 9th.  Since March 2016, you have been going through an intense, personal transformation and empowerment; and provided you have haven’t been too ruthless or self-seeking, your destiny has been underscored, but remember you are not the owner of the power.  You are the agent of it.


Your personal status is important to you this month, not least after the 7th when you all need to be careful about hypocrisy on the altar of trying to further your goals.

However, for all of you, after the 5th, your ability to be impressive intellectually and to persuade others and to have wisdom and power of thought should not be underestimated.

Before the 7th, for all born after February 9th, higher learning, study and travel is particularly beneficial and brings harmony, love and pleasure into your life and your sense of fairness is underscored, which is appreciated by others.

For all born from January 24th to February 14th, Mars is bringing wisdom, courage energy, both physical and spiritual to your vision and to your life.  Energised travel is particularly exciting and efforts are successful. 

Jupiter, in Scorpio, although is not particularly in harmony with your sign, can affect this month those born January 23rd to January 31st.  For this group, there can be a little bit of an over-confidence or over-reaching or an over-indulgence, or possible arrogance in public or career context.  Enjoy, but exercise moderation. 

Those born February 13th to 16th have very positive input from both Saturn and Uranus this month.  On one level there is responsibility, duty and hard work and constructive maturity in your efforts, particularly for others, but on the other hand, there is a great feeling of liberation, the new and an innovation and freedom of thinking, which you will have for some time.  Uranus is your ruler, so this is powerful and is awakening and by April 2018 you will have felt that the last year has been a truly liberating journey of consciousness.


This month accentuates higher wisdom, higher mind and travel, as it does legal affairs. 

Jupiter, now in Scorpio, is particularly, positively enhancing the lives of those born February 22nd to March 2nd.  For this group, long distance issues and travel is particularly highlighted, as are legal issues and also extra wisdom, luck, positivity and confidence and general growth internally or externally. 

Before the 5th, all born after March 12th will have an extra dimension of wisdom in your thinking and in your communications and you can learn a lot in long distance context.   This is also excellent for academic pursuits.

After the 7th, all of you will benefit from a combining of love with study and/or travel and generally compassion and wisdom contribute to your sense of affection and charm.

However, after the 5th, all of you may need to be a little bit careful to ensure that your communications are clearly understood in a professional context.  There is room for confusion.

Saturn is a little challenging now for those born March 15th to 18th.  Work issues may prove challenging and difficult or you may have some divine discontent connected with events in your professional status.  Frustrations are in the air.  Be patient, work hard, don’t lose confidence, but know when things need to change and do get rest.

Neptune, you ruling planet, in bringing the nth degree an extra Piscean influence to the lives of those born March 1st to 3rd and he has been so doing since April 2016.  This particular transit is over by mid-January, but has for this group, been truly inspiring, or possibly confusing.  At its best it would have brought a greater sense of spiritual and psychic consciousness and an appreciation of beauty and nature and the arts, like never before and accentuated your talents therein.  At worst, it would have brought some delusion, escapism or deception.  Try and make it the former and keep grounded in this last chapter of the journey.

Finally, Pluto has been very supportive since March 2016 and will be until the end of the year of those born March 7th to 9th.  He has brought powerful friends and you have had power to enhance other people’s lives, especially when working with and for others. Intense intelligence and depth of understanding and transformation abilities have been and continue to be yours.  Use wisely and enjoy.
