Astrology Overview WC 20th October 2014

The week begins with a big concentration of energies continuing in the zodiac sign of Libra. Indeed the Sun and the ruler of Libra, Venus, are side-by-side for the whole week and in the sign until Wednesday. This is quite a delectable combination, and can up the ante when it comes to romantic passion and intensity. But also this can be a combination which enables more diplomatic conversations.

Ironically, with this in mind, Mercury continues to rewind in Libra, through to Friday, but then does start to go forwards. Before then Mercury is also forging a brilliant link to Jupiter. All this can give all our thinking something of an optimistic boost, whilst conversely Saturn does its best to bring Jupiter down a peg or two. The overall balance of these energies suggests that if communications with others are good, well thought through, and plans have been properly researched, and argued, then others will be receptive.

Thursday is perhaps the most critical day of the week, a week which incidentally, is absolutely action packed. Then the Sun travels into the sign of Scorpio for the first time in eleven months. Also Thursday sees a Solar Eclipse emerge in Scorpio, one which will provide a backdrop for the next six months, of course this ties in with the Lunar Eclipse which occurred on 8th October, in Aries close to Uranus.

The balance of these energies over this next half year period therefore suggests a battle between, the Fixed quality of Scorpio, with the more rampant Cardinal energies of Aries and Uranus. But sneaking up on Friday, and moving into Scorpio too is Venus, and therefore I think this is going to be a period where human relationships, needs, desires, passions, and even jealousies that much more intense in the months to come. One thing it sure, it will not be dull.

Finally, once Mercury moves forwards on Saturday, Mars then powers into Capricorn on Sunday, where he will be until 4th of December. Use this six-week period to be as productive as possible and if your burning desire is to reach a position of success, influence or power, as long as you toe the party line and are prepared to put in the effort, there is every chance you will succeed. Good luck!

Astrology Overview WC 13th October 2014

The week begins with an interesting aspect running on from last time with Venus in opposition to Uranus. If you feel very restless about a relationship or conversely are itching to get to know someone new, this provides an insight of just why this might be.

Yet this can be an aspect that helps relationships to recreate themselves in some way and with Venus forging a fine link to Jupiter through to Thursday, and then in conjunction with Mercury on Thursday to the end of the week, there is plenty of potential to engage in positive dialogue, but this will require us to be attentive to the details of what is said and agreed.

Wednesday sees a Quarter Moon in Cancer, in fact with Mercury alongside the Sun for two days, the Quarter Moon influences that too. Essentially this is asking us to be mindful of sincerity in all discussions, or to be aware that there may be people around us that we close to you are out of sorts, or have various grievances with one another. You may find yourself having to play the role of the peacemaker or the diplomat.

Obviously with Mercury retreating all this week in Libra, still in its retrograde, potential for crossed wires, misunderstandings or glitches does remain high. But as ever all we can do is concentrate on the details of the things that we can control, we can’t control everything around us. Remember too that Mercury retrograde, is an opportunity to correct problems, especially to do with technology, transport or distribution.

Astrology Overview October 2014

Some might say Astrology can sometimes feel a bit like trading on the open market, but instead the setting is the open skies. For there are plenty of upturns and downturns, as trends are observed, predictions formed and returns made. So, with this in mind, this October is something of a ‘st-ock-tober’!

For this October is about taking stock, equal shares and bonds, as the month begins with the Sun already situated in the sharing Sign of Libra. This being the first Sign in the Zodiac sequence which moves from concentrating on the individual self to interacting with others and therefore, it is symbolised by the scales, as we attempt to achieve equilibrium with another. However, it can be difficult to maintain this steadiness when these scales are constantly shifting. So, at times, attempts to remain fair and share can become more fair and square, as pleasing one quarter unbalances another. This seeming apparent this month, as October opens on a high with the Sun and Venus forming a corporation in co-operation in the harmonious Sign of Libra. As the Sun pours all its resources into collaboration in around the table debates and discussions, Venus, naturally at home in the Sign of Libra, aids by smoothing over negotiations. Whilst also ensuring that it is not just all talk and an even distribution of finances follows, as Venus also governs finances.

Hence, the presence of Venus in Libra, not only assists in brokering these discussions, but not kept in check this combination may run the risk of sending many sectors for broke. As it is all well and good giving everyone their fair share, but what happens when there is not enough to go around and the scales do not balance? For the downside of the Sun and Venus in Libra is the tendency to over-splurge, seeing everything a little rosier than it is. This perhaps liberating the scales, as they quiver over the scale of liberation Scotland can now bank on. As choosing not to make a quick getaway ‘Scot free’ Bonnie and Clyde style, has left many not so bonnie on the banks of the Clyde, uncertain on whether Westminster will live up to its big promises of balanced constitutional reform.

This high October started on seems to plummet further by the 5th, when Mercury rings the bell on everyday dealings by turning retrograde. Then the daily grind may become a little more taxing, especially regarding taxes and public money, as Mercury retrogrades through the Sign of Scorpio until the 11th. Thus, not only are shared funds problematic, but knock-on effects could see further harsh cutbacks, with Saturn still in Scorpio. This perhaps relating to leisure activities and services for children, as well as quarrels over stricter legislation to protect them, as Leo Jupiter still challenges Saturn. This period could even result in strikes and demonstrations involving uniformed public services, these too falling under Scorpio’s jurisdiction. As do hidden and eliminative activities due to ruling Pluto, so expect anything from mining, sewage and refuse collection issues, to surgical errors and spending cuts, viral or contamination blunders and terrorist plotting. While stationary Neptune in Pisces in close aspect, only adds further setbacks and confusion.

However, Scorpio’s window of opportunity is short-lived, as by the 11th Mercury travels back into Libra. So whatever has been stirred up could now start to cause social divisions and disharmony, helped along by the 8th’s finalising Aries Full Moon falling on Uranus. This creating general shockwaves, as past self-interested and martial actions are no longer tolerated, highlighted through Chinese financial transactions and hidden actions in Afghanistan. While, flawed ideology in Iran and uncertain Canadian partnerships also become evident. However, achieving any real positive progress will prove arduous. As Mercury not only finds itself immobile in the Sign of Libra, affecting everyday social affairs, pleasurable pursuits and our sense of cohesion, but the Sun and Venus have now caught up, forming unfavourable angles to Uranus and Pluto. Although this forms more of a try-angle than triangle, as whatever is attempted at this time will meet with opposition. This making diplomatic relations particularly strained, but necessary as the karmic North Node lingers in Libra, demonstrated by the Scottish devolution issue. Meanwhile, the matter of money still remains at the centre of this, as retrograde Mercury forces the going over of issues previously thought to have been resolved. Therefore, solutions are sought through further dialogue, coming to a head when Venus unites with the Sun in Scorpio, accompanied by a New Moon and significant Solar Eclipse on the 23rd.

For a Solar Eclipse is the precursor to change, but efforts to leave no quarter feeling short-changed are crucial to capitalise on this eclipse. As this eclipse links to adverse partnerships and advisors, with unfavourable events in Egypt, Poland, North Korea, the Panama and Russia emphasised, as well as traffic issues. While matters in Iraq become further perplexing, but United Nations talks should prove encouraging. However, the Baltic regions, Mexico, Cuba and France should see positive outcomes and some cash injections, as should new NASA projects.

Therefore, just action is possible, utilising Mars in Sagittarius in favourable aspect to Jupiter in Leo and Aries Uranus until the 25th, especially regarding past foreign affairs and legalities. This becoming more imperative by the 21st as Uranus and Neptune both reach a standstill at a critical degree, but Neptune’s presence in Pisces here clouds the facts, making it difficult to act clearly over bygone matters. Although by the 26th things will have improved somewhat as Mercury turns direct again, making daily life less chaotic, along with the new cycle initiated by Scorpio’s Solar Eclipse and Venus improving finances temporarily. However, as balances seem to improve Mars trips things up progressing into Capricorn, causing anger, especially among the older generation over their savings and pensions. Therefore, this month we may face many trying angles and squares, but these are necessary to shape the future once ‘Oct-is-gone’!

Astrology Overview WC 6th October 2014

The week begins with the Sun in Libra along with Venus. But the sparkling influences that were shaping up last week continue throughout the duration of this one. A wonderful Grand Fire Trine – as well as the Sun’s angle to both Jupiter and Mars, can certainly create a sense of optimism and hopefulness.

Yet Wednesday sees a Lunar Eclipse in Aries, one which combines with the restless spirit which is planet Uranus. Now Eclipses work in polar pairs and this one ties in with the Solar Eclipse of 23rd of October in Scorpio. So, what can we expect from this in the next six months?

Well, the energy of Uranus in the Lunar Eclipse, promotes the concept of freedom and independence. Whilst the Solar Eclipse is more about being mindful of the responsibilities in close alliances. We can see this energy being played out in the outcome of the Scottish independence campaign, but also the push for power of Isis, as well as the battle for control of eastern Ukraine. Whichever way power ebbs and flows it will create consequences on these consequences will not necessarily be as edifying as the original objectives demanded. Uncertainty in the financial sector seems possible and continuing desire for “rights” for minorities from more controlling interests or powers.

On Saturday Mercury, continuing its retrograde, reverses back into the sign of Libra. This suggests that keeping dialogue is open and as fluid as possible, is going to be important for us all. However set any situation may have seemed, there is still going to be plenty of opportunities for further discussion, give-and-take and co-operation.

Astrology Overview WC 29th September 2014

The week begins with Jupiter and Uranus continuing their sparkling alliance, however they are going to be joined by Mars from Thursday helping to create a quite unique and uncommon, Grand Fire Trine. This is one of the most auspicious of all multiple planetary influences, and as you can imagine because of the Fire element there is fantastic potential for initiating ideas and taking action.

Tuesday also sees Venus move into one of its two home zones, of Libra. The next 28 days are going to put a greater emphasis on fashion, design, and style. Also Venus’s move into this sector can see diplomacy increase, and there is much to be gained by reaching out to others and trying to improve links through greater co-operation and collaboration.

Wednesday’s Quarter Moon occurs in the sign of Capricorn. It’s a cautionary note to remind us to remember the importance of sincerity. Venus can, in its extremes, mask true feelings behind a veneer of pleasantness. So it is going to be important to walk the talk when it comes to your intentions and not try to gloss things over.

With the Sun powering its way through Libra, it also starts to link up with both Mars and Jupiter. All of this can be very exciting and very energising too. The upside of Libra is the desire for fairness, social justice and equality, we are likely to see announcements made or initiatives begun around these areas.

By Saturday however, Mercury begins the third of its three annual retrogrades, in the sign of Scorpio. This is going to continue for the following ten days before the planet rewinds back into the sign of Libra. This is a reminder that however buoyant this week’s influences are, we also need to be mindful that as is in everything in life, nothing is perfect and to counter the potential for its negativity it will be important to make sure that we take care over the things we can influence on an individual basis.

There is also a clash between the Sun and Uranus which begins on Saturday which is going to run on into next week too. Despite all the vibrancy that we have this week this can create some rebelliousness and some challenges – especially if the status quo is in the process of changing. Some people will be driving these changes other people will resist them. But on the whole this week does represent an extremely bright, bubbly, and vibrant opportunity for greater self-expression and progress, particularly around creative pursuits.

Astrology Overview WC 22nd September 2014

The week begins with three aspects continuing from last time. The first of these Venus is sextiling with Saturn, but just on Monday and Tuesday. This can be positive for both financial and romantic hopes wherever there is a situation which looks steady and secure.

The second is the sparkling alliance between Jupiter and Uranus. Continue to look towards innovation, fresh ideas and technological solutions – in terms of both work or leisure possibilities. And finally, Mars continues its right angle with Neptune. This can create an environment of coercion, deceit or confusion.

Monday also sees the forward motion of Pluto. This tiny planet at the edge of our solar system, has been rewinding for the last 5 1/2 months. This is the planet of power, and in the sign of Capricorn as it has been in retrograde, inappropriate application of power has been seen throughout the world. Of course it would be wrong to suggest this only happens when Pluto is in rewind, but it certainly doesn’t help. So this alteration is something to celebrate.

Tuesday also sees something else positive as the Sun powers its way into Libra. The seventh of the twelve Zodiac signs, its values of balance, fairness, justice, diplomacy, collaboration, co-operation and working closely together in partnership, comes to the fore for the following four weeks.

This is further enhanced on Wednesday when there is a Libra New Moon. This is important because this Zodiac sign is ruled by the element of air, and therefore the emotional influence of the Moon can help to balance the more logical attributes of the sign.

Sunday also sees Mercury ingress into Scorpio. This can bring a more penetrative environment to thoughts and ideas. Getting under the surface of things can prove very effective in the following weeks. Any interest in psychic phenomena, is also emphasised. For more, please watch my FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview WC 15th September 2014

The week begins with Mars getting a toehold in the sign of Sagittarius. If you tuned in last time you’ll know that the planet switched signs last Sunday. Mars in Sagittarius is one of its happiest locations and it’s going to immediately merge in terms of neat energies with the potency of the ruler of Sagittarius Jupiter, insofar as this is the Zodiac signs’ double ruler in its first Decan, which Mars will navigate through, right to the end of the month.

If you are fire sign, be it Aries Leo or Sagittarius itself, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to really rev up your efforts. Yet this week also begins with Venus influential and it forges two alliances, one in the first half of the week with Pluto, and the other from Friday to Sunday with Saturn. Now it is true to say that Saturn and Pluto are the most strategic of all the outer Zodiac signs. And the suggestion here is that relationships can go through a period of evolution. Any time that has positive roots, can get stronger. But equally you can find yourself becoming much more conscious of someone, that you may have taken more for granted up until now.

Yet with from midweek Mars clashing with Neptune, if there’s someone you’re strongly drawn to in a more sexual context you need to be absolutely sure what you’re getting into. Someone may seem very enticing but this could be a time which could lead to problems, not least around a potential beau’s motives and sincerity.

On Tuesday there is also a Quarter Moon. This occurs in the sign of Gemini. Its angle with the Sun in Virgo creates quite an electric energy across the heavens, one that tempts us to be ultra efficient and busy in our approach. Don’t try to pack too much into this week because if you do you may find yourself becoming rather stressed if you don’t get everything done quite as you wish.

Perhaps the standout influence of the week in terms of innovation, is the continuing link between Jupiter and Uranus. This really is sparkle central, fantastic if you’re dreaming up brilliant ideas, wanted to work yourself, love technology, or want to get busy on any home based you are f please watch the FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview WC 8th September 2014

The week begins with a Full Moon in the sign of Pisces. With Venus also in opposition with Neptune the co-ruler of Pisces for the whole of the week balancing practicality with sensitivity is going to be a central theme.

Yet they can also be a sense of unreality in some ways around this week, especially in regards to close relationships where if you meet somebody new, a person who seems to be very enticing and exciting may indeed turn out to be the real deal, but equally lead to a huge disappointment if they don’t live up to early promise. The Venus Neptune opposition is one where people can also appear very sincere and caring, but this actually disguises the opposite characteristic of insincerity.

Use the continuing Virgo energy to focus on facts and figures, and earthy outcomes. This can be a counterpoint to the more dreamy swirling vibe that Neptune spills out the whole week. And ironically there is actually a very solid influence that goes between the Sun in Virgo and Saturn in Scorpio. The elements of your situation that you’re pleased with, and which you’ve worked hard on, can seem to get more and more solid. Is going to be important therefore not to be distracted by any non-essential influences that come from Neptune.

In the second half of the week, a stunning link between Jupiter and Uranus is wonderful for any form of innovation. When these two are working co-operatively and collaboratively together such as in this aspect all sorts of wonderful technical, digital and medical breakthroughs are possible and so it is here. This asks us to be proactive around any unusual ideas we have been taking the first step, and not being too dependent on the feedback from others.

Another alteration this week which is important, is Mars powering its way into the sign of Sagittarius on Sunday. This too can be a very liberating alteration. If you feel that you should perhaps get fitter or more active or engaged your mind much more frequently, the next 60 days is going to be a perfect opportunity to do so. The first decan of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so the natural go getting energies of this Zodiac sign are going to be enhanced by Mars travelling through it for the next 20 days. So, in short, go for it! For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview WC 1st September 2014

The week begins with Mercury spinning into the sign of Libra. The first Decan of Libra that it occupies is ruled by the Moon, so Mercury in this location and alone aided by the Air element of the sign, still needs to be conscious of the need to communicate but not just with clarity but also with emotion.

However from Monday to Saturday there is a very intense but potentially positive angle a Trine between the two Earth located planets, of the Sun and Pluto. A Trine is enabling, and the potential for change but in a positive way, and lasting and tangible one due to the Earth element, is very good. Of course not all Pluto’s influence comes at our own choice, and sometimes alterations are forced upon us. But whether you’re transforming some thinking inside of yourself, or something is changing around you or something seems to be taken out of your hands, try to be philosophical about the movement in your situation.

Tuesday sees a potent Quarter Moon between the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Sagittarius. Virgo is very much about service and practicality, whilst Sagittarius is very much about freedom and independence. Yet they are both mutable signs so a degree of flexibility suggests this is one of the Quarter Moon’s that is more survivable, but there may be some compromises to be struck between what we want to do for yourselves and what we need to do for others.

Friday sees glam puss Venus end it’s sojourn through the sign of Leo, and move to Virgo. This is all about finding ways to please and help, as a good way to soothe and smooth any personal or professional relationships. But this certainly not as charismatic as Venus moving through Leo, but there is a sincerity and stability to this transit. Yet by the very end of the week Venus does start to edge into an opposition with the dreamy and illusive energies of Neptune. If there is anyone you have been getting to know of late, some confusion could creep into the tie, particularly if it’s developed a bit quicker than perhaps it should have done.

Astrology Overview September 2014

The 9th month, in pregnancy is usually when the long awaited birth takes place, when mother and child part, becoming individual entities. Well the 9th month of September this year follows a similar theme, as ‘sep-arations’ are emphasised this ‘Sep-tember’!

For as the month begins, children and adults go their separate ways, back to school and work; separatist thoughts continue to divide nations and Scotland decides whether to permanently separate from the UK and file for divorce!

Although on the plus side, the Sun begins the month in the Sign of analytical Virgo. So there will be no hasty decisions made, as this pragmatic and cautious Sign carefully considers all the finer details before coming to any final resolution. While this is further reinforced by Mercury’s movement into the balanced Sign of the scales, Libra, on the 2nd, as there is no Sign better at weighing up the pros and cons before reaching a verdict. However, it is all well and good taking into account all concerns, but there comes a time when you need to prioritise. Although with Neptune clouding the issues for most of September, this could prove tricky.

As Neptune’s stationary position opposing Virgo means it is quite literally impossible to ‘see the wood for the trees’ in issues over divisions of land and all else. So any judgments formed at this time may later be found to have been based on false ground, as illusive Neptune not only obstructs clarity, but also conceals facts. Furthermore, when Planets are stationary, a period of inner contemplation is preferable, unless revisiting previously unsettled matters. So it would be an ideal occasion to resolve any remaining faults regarding care given to vulnerable individuals, especially with the 9th’s finalising Full Moon in compassionate Pisces, but not for initiating anything new. However, sometimes decisions just cannot be avoided, so at these times it is favourable to use gut instinct over logic, but do not be surprised if further down the line other factors come to light.

As with shocking Uranus at odds with communicative Mercury for almost the entire month this seems likely. This also spells out upsets to the smooth running of the day to day, as with Libra in Mercury there should be harmonious, co-operative everyday practices. However, unexpected Uranus looks sets to bring discord, whether from transport strikes, protests, outbreaks, weather storms or even unexplained activities, as the U.F.O site of Roswell is starred this month. Furthermore, the karmic Moon’s Nodes still lingers in Libra, so by the 23rd prepare to witness worsening events. With the Sun entering Libra, shortly followed by a New Moon and added friction from Pluto’s regained forward motion. This particularly affecting the situation in Afghanistan and causing further anger in Palestine. While, in the US, the Stock exchange may well see an upturn, but the White House faces further sudden shake ups concerning shared assets. As well as recent activities highlighting the threat of terrorism as the anniversary of 9/11 is prominent this month.

Meanwhile the vote for Scottish independence may bring up unexpected consequences especially in the area of legislation. As Scotland may not exactly achieve all they desire, but the New Moon will shine a light on any hidden information regarding England’s situation.
While Jupiter in Leo throughout September keeps the focus on the plight of children this month, as this legal Planet labours over well overdue worldwide reforms. However, with Saturn and Mars still in conflicting Scorpio, it will prove difficult to push through any concrete reforms, as further abuse and violence towards the young is revealed. Although, a helping hand comes when Mars moves into judicial Sagittarius on the 14th, making a more beneficial aspect to Jupiter. As well as decreasing the threat of sexual violence, as focus shifts more towards deep-rooted and religious beliefs. However, Mars then finds itself at odds with Venus in Virgo and Pisces Neptune, as foreigners come under the spotlight. With immigration control and human trafficking causing anger, along with the human sacrifice in fighting foreign lands. While, added to this the presence of the Pisces Full Moon on the 9th could bring hazards such as drowning, as well as having an unravelling effect on the situation in Iran.

Although on a positive note, the movement of the Sun from Leo into Virgo should offer a less dramatic and more structured approach. This on a daily basis seeing individuals get back into the ritual of work, rest and play, gaining some satisfaction from this steady routine when Venus progresses into Virgo on the 5th. As after any summer excesses, this Sign aids individuals and bank balances to look a little healthier, before revving up again for winter festivities. However, it will seem difficult to make any real advancement this month, as the Planets never quite get into sync at the same time, this seen as the month closes when Mercury moves into Scorpio just as Venus is about to progress into Libra.

The upshot of this causing frustrations, coupled with shocks from Uranus and confusion from Neptune. This will be obvious in France and Cyprus, as unexpected events stir up anger particularly regarding finances. While China and Egypt will experience further aggressions, along with Russia, as attempts at peace continue. However, Mexico and Singapore may see more positive everyday activity, if Venus is channelled correctly. So this month the Sign of Virgo may try to provide structure, but it seems likely to be built on shaky foundations!
