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!

Astrology Overview WC 25th August 2014

The week begins with a New Moon in the sign of Virgo, on Monday. For all of us this can be a good time to think about the details of life and grapple with practicalities and look to get under the surface of issues and tune all our attentions in a constructive, workable way. Health diet and fitness issues can also come into focus. If elements of your life have become less than organised this is a great time to try to get things into a more ordered pattern. If you’re looking for work the Virgo New Moon provides a platform in the next month, which encourages finding a job where you would gain personal satisfaction. Roles that focus on the service sector can be particularly influenced and positively, by this.

The first half of the week also sees Venus continue to sparkle magnetically with Uranus which can lead to some unexpected connections and perhaps some brief but intense and flirty encounters. Yet Venus features for the rest of the week in a less than positive way in a right angle with both Mars, its partner in love, and also Saturn the planet of restriction. If there are any troubled relationships in your world this particular aspect could see them come to a close. All ties will require certain amount of diplomacy, and even when that’s invested not everyone may necessarily take what we mean at face value.

Another manifestation of Mars is conjunction with Saturn which runs all through the week, is the ability to focus on one narrow area of activity with a great deal of energy and commitment. However this aspect can also lead to sudden outbursts of frustration, or low self-esteem. If you imagine that Mars is the accelerator, Saturn is the handbrake. So when they combine like this it’s rather like trying to drive a car with the handbrake on. The chances are you not going to crash but equally you may not go as fast as you were truly like and that’s where the frustration can come in.

Another big aspect dominating this week is the opposition between the Sun and Neptune which runs from Tuesday through to Sunday. This too can be a depleting influence because if we think the Sun is at the heart of everything we try to do, its core drive can be muted by the wateriness that Neptune presents in its home zone of Pisces. The impact here is less obvious as if we can be very subtly undermined by the points of view or attitudes of others. It may be best to steer clear of anyone who damns us with faint praise, is constantly judgemental, clingy or very needy.  For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview for WC 18th August 2014

The week begins with Mercury in opposition to Neptune, and Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo, with both aspects ongoing through to Wednesday. Mercury opposite Neptune can be confusing, and may see you finding it hard to tie information down around one person or situation. This is not necessarily the best aspect to try and do a deal under. Look for clarity at all times. However Venus conjunct Jupiter is quite joyful, and it’s possible that a social occasion or a spark of romance could brighten the start of this week.

Ironically with from Wednesday Mars is going conjunct Saturn, in Scorpio but squaring Venus, relationships can beam less harmonious in the latter part of the week. Mars conjunct Saturn is a fascinating influence. People with this in their natal charts can be very hard-working and committed to the cause, and King keep going even when obstacles prove considerable. Yet the downside is this is an aspect which can create a great deal of frustration, which at times can see and motions pouring out through shortness of temper. With the energies in Leo and the energies in Scorpio at odds expect some jealousy or politics in certain relationships.

Yet Friday sees the Sun power into Virgo the sixth sign of the Zodiac, 30 day journey which gives us an opportunity to create greater precision in all we do. If you’re interested in getting fitter, eating a more nutritious diet, or conversely looking for a job that is more satisfying this can be significant.

Astrology Overview WC 11th August 2014

The affect of last week’s Full Moon will continue to be felt this week. The principle driver behind this is likely to be the oppressive energies of Saturn. Yet this is asking us to balance out hope with realism. A fantasy influence also runs on all this week, on the quincunx between Neptune and Jupiter. These planets are the rulers of Pisces. In this angle, they are not in direct conflict, more working on two very different levels, so to counter any negativity, the trick is going to keep the feet firmly on terra firma.

On Tuesday, Venus glides into Leo, where she will strut her stuff for the following 28 days. From Friday through to Sunday she combines brilliantly with Jupiter. This is one of the most gorgeous of aspects, particularly in Leo pushes us all to enjoy the good things in life, to be social and engage in mixing and mingling. For some people it could lead to significant romantic developments.

However this particular aspect can also be one of excess, and when it comes to the calorific goodies, alcohol, and any indulgence it can see us find it hard to resist anything remotely desirable. If you have been on a diet, it could take a pounding under the auspices of this.

Finally on Friday Mercury zips into Virgo, one of the two signs that it governs. For the following three weeks the need for extra care, attention to detail, precision, meticulousness, or whatever you want to call it, is going to be high. However, this can also be a very positive transit, helping us to think about the ways we can bring practical improvements to our life.

Astrology Overview August 2014

‘There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home’!

A memorable line from the film, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ of course, but also an opener for the month of August, as it begins with the Sun sitting comfortably in its natural home, the Zodiac Sign of Leo, the Lion!

However, this is no cowardly lion, more a lazing one this month as it laps up the Sun’s rays, with a cocktail at hand. For this August promises a roaring time, as the Sun is quite literally like the song says, welcomed into the ‘House of Fun’. Although, it seems the invitation arrived at the end of July, when a New Moon in Leo, the Sign of enjoyment and creativity arrived, offering new experiences and opportunities. However, this month the Sun turns up to grab the offer with Mercury and Jupiter in tow, ready for their fair share of fun too, as August begins with these two Planets closely joined together in the Sign of Leo. Subsequently signalling that at last pressure is off home life and we are instead entering a more leisurely period.

For there should definitely be a more upbeat feeling in general everyday life, not only due to the positive reflection of the beaming Sun, but also lucky Jupiter coupled with Mercury, governing day to day events and communications. This is especially true regarding activities around children, as Leo presides over young cubs, so there should be an emphasis on introducing more entertainment into learning and sports this August. This being in an attempt to improve children’s health and well-being, releasing stress, as the curriculum is re-evaluated and what goes on after-school hours. A theme which will no doubt take better shape when the second half of the month sees Planets progress into detailed and health conscious Virgo.

While, those no longer of school age will be feeling younger at heart this month, whether it be because of that long awaited rejuvenating Summer holiday; spending quality time with children on their lengthy annual break or just simply doing a little less work and more play. For from the 11th Venus joins other Leo Planets to ensure carefree distractions are paramount in people’s minds, encouraging the urge to splurge the cash.

However, even though Leo’s cheerful outlook calms Cancer’s previous emotional turmoil, it is advisable to remain aware that even a lounging lion is always poised to pounce, as this month a little lion’s courage may also be necessary. For conflicts still exist, as these Leo Planets face opposition from warrior Mars in Scorpio now teaming up with Saturn to enter the lion’s den. As this double act endeavour to get to the bottom of all criminal and illicit encounters, with Leo’s involvement directing attention towards addressing child abuse in particular and the Leo qualities of power and celebrity being misused for these ends. This is further ramped up a notch by the Full Moon in rivalling Aquarius on the 10th, linking large organisations to exploitation.

While shocking Uranus remains stationary in irate Aries throughout the month of August, indicating issues that have caused past upset will continue too, lingering unresolved. This being applicable in relation to abuses in general, as Uranus not only aspects Saturn, but squares up against Venus and Pluto. For Venus commences the month in Cancer opposing Pluto until the 11th, highlighting concerns around the concept of home in all its forms and resources, financial or otherwise. As conflict continues over those fighting for what they regard as their home territory, with the situation in Russia/Ukraine, Israel/Palestine and Iran/Iraq predominantly starred. However, Planets suggest that this is a time to reflect and learn from past issues for Russia and Israel, in order to address present and future difficulties. Whereas the relationship between Iran/Iraq looks set to undergo further changes.

While closer to home, care home procedures may require new legislation to combat mistreatment. This even further reinforced when Mercury progresses into Virgo on the 16th, shortly followed by the Sun on the 23rd, confronting Neptune immobile in Pisces. As the health services available for those vulnerable will once again come to the fore, illuminating any inefficiencies and inadequate care, especially relating to the neglected elderly, with Pluto and Neptune still retrograde.

However, a Virgo New Moon on the 25th should aid putting in place procedures to handle concerns, establishing around the clock care and monitoring. Although caution is needed with Virgo, as new ideas run the risk of becoming just a cost-cutting exercise, but with Venus already tackling tricky planetary aspects all month, any shortcuts may have the reverse effect, costing governments more, as stricter sanctions on benefit’s claimants seem to already be displaying.

Therefore, this month may see extremes worldwide of joyous occasions and bloodshed occurring almost simultaneously, as new planetary transits clash with stationary Outer Planets, quite literally weather-wise, as that roaring thunder may make an appearance once again. Meanwhile, violence of some type around Singapore and unpredictable upheaval in France seems probable. On a more positive note, the Caribbean Islands, South Korea and Switzerland receive more favourable attention, linked to everyday life and young males. Whereas, this month’s Full Moon affects the public status of those in the U.S, perhaps touching on the issue of illegal immigration from Mexico, along with cementing the work/health situation in Cuba. While in South Africa and Kuwait the healing process commences for past hurts. So all in all like the tornado in the ‘Wizard of Oz’, August promises a-gust of that wind of change, but this month may also leave us feeling a little aghast!

Astrology Overview WC 4th August 2014

This week sees influences predominantly in the signs of Leo and Scorpio. In the Lion, we have the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter, well, at least until the last day of the week when Venus moves into the sign too.

Yet in Scorpio, there is a Quarter Moon on Monday, a square between Mars and Jupiter which runs on from last week, and also a square between Saturn and the conjunction in Leo of the Sun and Mercury. So what does this all mean?

Well, the joyfulness and expressiveness that Leo energy is bringing to bear is challenged by the deeper more scrutinising vibes coming from Scorpio. You may encounter a situation this week where you are very enthusiastic about something call someone that someone you interact with, may seem much less impressed.

Try not to be deflated by this. This is just their way of being less impressed by the style, and more focused on the substance. So each influence can learn from the other. Yet there is little doubt that Saturn can be a more restrictive, somewhat joy killer for the Sun and Mercury.

You may also encounter this week possessiveness, control and jealousy issues. These may not occur directly in your own personal situation that you may hear of them affection friends or family members or colleagues. Essentially, the warmth, love and expressiveness of Leo is being tempered by deeper, sometimes less tangible vibes.

Ironically, Mars in its trine with Neptune continues this week, and this is an aspect of genuine self-sacrifice. Great for any charitable activities, for helping those who are less fortunate this can counter some of the politics that the big Fixed Squares throw.

However with a Full Moon in Aquarius on Sunday and Venus moving into Leo on the same day, this energy are cystic and the way looking for greater cooperation and ways of working more collaboratively, and harmoniously together. For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview WC 28th July 2014

The week begins with the Sun and Jupiter still in conjunction. If you remember this fabulous planetary aspect dominated last week. However, it is just going to be at the very start of this week when it still at its strongest influence. Use this to springboard your new week with real verve, and panache.

From Tuesday through to Sunday Venus forges a very stable link in Cancer to Saturn in Scorpio. Now when these two planets get together in a less positive way, it can be a relationship breaker. However in this instance if there is one particular tie shaping up well in your world, the chances are can go from strength to strength. A financial issue can also improve.

Yet there is a supreme irony this week, because whilst this very positive influences in play Venus also forges a much less helpful link to Uranus this points towards board creeping into a tie that perhaps is become too predictable. Look to try to find new ways to reinvigorate your key partnership. It may be that one if you will want more space than the partner during this time.

On Thursday Mercury plays catch up, moving to join both the Sun and Jupiter in Leo. Now because of the retrograde which occurred in June, Mercury has gone back and forwards across the sign of Cancer since the end of May. It is actually a really good thing that it’s emerging into the sign of Leo, because Mercury is the planet which influences intellect, talk and thought, and business communications. In Cancer it’s far too subjective, but as it glides into Leo it’s a chance to be much more outgoing, to take the initiative and get on the front foot.

Though Mercury immediately links with Jupiter. So if we think about Mercury control in commerce, and Jupiter fortune, and the sign of Leo being controlled by the Sun, it wouldn’t be a surprise if there was some good financial news creeping into play around the worlds markets, or some kind of dramatic events can occur. If you love the arts, going to watch plays, musicals or live bands, you will be in your absolute element.

Yet Mars lays in wait in Scorpio, ready to square at both these planets. In the case of Jupiter this can actually be quite a positive thing. It can make us more risk taking, self-confident, and less fearful. The downside is that this can go all the way to recklessness, and this is something we need to avoid. Mars and Mercury clashing is desire, competing with logic.

Yet Mars does forge a very positive link as this week draws to a close with Neptune, the planet of dreams. Neptune is a shimmering mysterious entity, can sometimes in its relationship with Mars cause confusion, which runs all the way to the deceit, even theft. But here the drive of Mars can be used to do something compassion and caring for other people like a charity run, or fund raising effort.

Astrology Overview WC 21st July 2014

The week begins with Uranus, the planet of independence beginning a retrograde journey in Aries. Over the next 5 1/2 months we are going to be asked to investigate our relationship to dependency, fixed attitudes and patterns, and the orthodox. Although this retrograde can be challenging it can also be positive if we can become more aware of how we respond around these things.

From Monday to Wednesday Mercury continues its opposition to Pluto. If you remember last week this came into effect on Sunday. This is one of those aspects where someone can take on a holier than thou approach, so it’s important for all of us to understand our own desire to get our view point’s heard, and avoid making the mistake of being overly opinionated.

However the most wonderful influence this week is undoubtedly the conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter. This goes on all week in the sign of Leo, and this can bring about a real sense of optimism, renewal, energy, creativity and positivity. The Sun is the ruler of Leo, and of course the Sun is the heart of our whole life force. This is the first time this influence has occurred for 12 years, so do be proactive in making it work for you personally.

On Friday Mars the planet of individuality, ego, drive and instant gratification, moves after eight long months in Libra, into the sign of Scorpio. Mars is also the co-ruler of Scorpio, and for the next 50 days or so, is going to espouse a very passionate vibe. If you want to increase the intimacy in a romantic relationship this will certainly help. However, we must also be aware of the more ruthless side of Mars in Scorpio, and resist any temptation towards vengefulness when we don’t get our own way. Holding onto grievances, bearing grudges, and seeing things in very much black-and-white terms are the downsides of this particular transit.

Saturday however sees a wonderful Leo New Moon, still embracing Jupiter, so a great chance to do something dramatic, impressive and even showy. Have a fantastic week. For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site…

Astrology Overview WC 14th July 2014

This week, sees one of the most positive developments of the whole year as Jupiter soars into Leo on Wednesday for a year long occupation. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and the combination can be absolutely fantastic.

Why? Well Jupiter in this zodiac sign can stimulate the stock market, create a greater sense of optimism and confidence that things are on the up, and can also be wonderful for the arts and charitable activities.

Jupiter in Leo

Whatever talents you have look to express them fulsomely in the next 12 months. To discover exactly how this will play out for you in the next year, please watch your weekly horoscope video for your zodiac sign, or your year 2014 forecast. If you’re looking for love, to add to your family or to bring greater warmth and sparkle into your world this can be a wonderful change.

Sun squares with Mars

However this week specifically also sees the Sun squaring up to Mars and the Sun continuing in Cancer. This aspect can put people at odds with one another, be it professionally or personally. Don’t expect things to go exactly to plan all through this week. Even though Jupiter is going to give us all a boost, it will take time for it to find its feet in Leo and make a strategic and significant difference.

Venus into Gemini

Friday sees Venus make its way from Gemini into Cancer. This alteration is absolutely perfect if you’re looking to make improvements to where you live, for family gatherings or developing the more nuanced, caring and nurturing part of any relationship

Saturn ends retrograde

Saturday has two big influences with a Quarter Moon in Libra, and Saturn ends a 5 1/2 month backward journey. The Quarter Moon is going to have a rather similar impact as the Sun square Mars. And control could be the central theme. It’s going to be important to try to hold onto a sense of diplomacy, even if things don’t go exactly to plan.

Yet with Saturn going forwards, this can be much more positive. Anything which has been really stuck in your situation, whether its health, work, money or relationship issues can start to flow forwards more dynamically. Remember Saturn is the planet of structure as well as of restriction, and the areas of restriction which had been particularly difficult can ease off somewhat.

Mercury opposite Pluto

Finally Sunday sees Mercury in opposition with Pluto. You may find yourself in a conversation where someone sees something very differently to you and is keen to persuade you of how right they are. This may also be true in vice versa. Stand your ground if you feel that you are in the right, but do avoid being overly dogmatic.

Astrology Overview WC 7th July 2014

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 7th July 2014.  Monday sees the sun still opposed by Pluto – an aspect which has run on from last week. Some kind of power battle which has ensued during that time, could still be finding its way. Yet much more constructively there is a fantastic link between the Sun and Saturn which runs from Monday through to Friday. Saturn is much maligned but it is about structure, and if you like it is the glue which holds everything together. Like all glues it can bog us down at times, but in this angle with the Sun it’s promoting the potential for positive changes, whilst Saturn ensures they can be lasting. Therefore you can be optimistic that the good things that are going on in your situation at the present time, have a good chance to endure.

From Wednesday through to Sunday, Venus is also forging sultry link to Mars. Of course these two planets control love and romance, and when fine tuned in this way, can enable us to balance our drives and affections really well. Both are also located in the air signs of Gemini and Libra, respectively. Because of this if there is something you need to say to someone, use this opportunity to do so because the chances are you can convey yourself really well.

All week the Sun also forges a really nice semi-sextile to Venus. Although there is a Cancerian influence much to the fore, levitation comes from the airiness of Venus in Gemini. Look to be playful with the people you care about. Even family gatherings can turn out to be fun or if you have friends in an extended family a get-together with them can be enjoyable.

Saturday sees a Full Moon in Capricorn. But this is a Full Moon which forges a tight right angle with Mars. If you are having a discussion about balancing work and home issues, it will be important to keep a sense of perspective and to turn your listening skills up to full.

Mercury also moves on Saturday back into Cancer. If you remember this occurred this year at the end of May but due to the retrograde in June, ultimately the planet rewound into Gemini, which is why this ingress is taking place once more. I can’t say that Mercury in Cancer is completely comfortable because it can make us rather more subjective about our communications, however it is also an opportunity to think alot more about the foundations in our world and the people and things that we really love.
