Astrology Overview for WC 21st August 2017

The week begins with the Solar Eclipse in Leo. This Black Moon or 2nd lunation in the sign of Leo in the last month, certainly sends out a very powerful message not least that it links with the planet of spontaneity, Uranus . This energy is really pushing us to go outside our comfort zone over the next six months. Of course ironically Mars and Uranus were pushing us with the same message last week.

With the Sun and the Moon conjoined however in Leo, this is incredibly powerful, and with the North Node – the point of destiny, also in Leo, ever since early May, we are really entering a different phase. Now of course depending exactly on what zodiac sign you are this will have different meanings. But for us all generally, it really is a time of opportunity when it comes to being more devil may care, and embracing anything which gives us a sense of fulfillment. All this of course is driven by fire energy, so by firing ourselves up into action there is so much to go for.

Now, Mars continues in Leo to for this one last full week, and is in a great angle with Jupiter . This is more stable than its link last time with Uranus, and it can give us a sense of invincibility. This can of course be good in a way if it provides the spark to initiate, and relate to others in a powerful and meaningful way. What we do need to avoid doing however is being overconfident, or feeling everything will fall into our laps without too much effort on our parts.

Ironically, the Sun relocates on Wednesday into the sign of Virgo. If there are creative strands that we are developing, the trick is going to be in framing them in a practical way which gives tangible results. So this is the ultimate mixture of form and function.

Thursday also sees Saturn and its retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius. Any area of life which has felt particularly restrictive, and especially to do with knowledge, travel, international affairs, the law and so on, will stop start to ease up between now and December 19th, which completes Saturn’s journey through the sign.

The Leo dimension that’s been so potent however is boosted furthermore on Saturday this week, when Venus arrives in this sign, for a twenty eight day duration. This really is Charisma Central, and therefore there can be some real opportunities to be more playful sociable and self expressive, during this period.

Astrology Overview for WC 24th July 2017

The week begins with with the energy being emanated by last week’s Leo New Moon still very much to the fore. This is a time to be brave about our hopes, and be determined to be heard. However with Venus and Saturn in an opposition, a pinch point could be reached in one ongoing relationship. If something really is out of kilter, this could lead to a complete end. Just as easily it’s an opportunity, to have a frank discussion, clear the air, and understand where each person is really coming from.

With Mercury returning to one of its two home zones on Wednesday, in the sign of Virgo, whatever we plan or do we need to calibrate the detail of things in a very precise way. This is a good counterpoint really for all the larger-than-life energy that the Sun ‘s combination with Mars and the Leo New Moon creates and can help to keep us grounded.

Furthermore, and ironically, Venus forges a fabulous angle to Uranus in the second half of this week and if there is a situation which does require a more radical approach or a leap of faith, this aspect can be very supportive. Yet in any relationship, if there are more possessive or clingy vibes, the Quarter Moon on Sunday, asks us to liberate ourselves from anything which is not truly generous of spirit.

Astrology Overview for WC 17th July 2017

The week begins with restless Uranus squaring with the Sun and Mars . With all three planets in Cardinal locations it’s possible that things could centre on issues of control or power. If you’re in a situation where your options are very limited, but the expectation of what you should contribute is very high, this is where the more edgy tendencies of Uranus can come into play.

However Venus forges a beautiful angle with Jupiter, one of the most upbeat and attracting of all planetary influences. On the face of it this can make as a little bit lacking in motivation because we would prefer to be doing more pleasurable pursuits. But if you’re lucky enough to meet someone for the first time this could be an encounter that really sizzles.

Mars also moves into Leo on Friday, an area which he is much more content in, and a transit which will last for six weeks. Anything to do with performance, creativity, the arts, or just downright fun, can certainly be given a boost by his arrival. This is supported by Mercury (already in Leo) and its fine link with Saturn. This is terrific for structuring our ideas in a very precise but progressive way but where we can bring an element of flair into play.

The Sun also arrives in Leo its home zone on Sunday but there is also a fabulous New Moon on the same day and the energy of this is going to provide a backdrop for the next four weeks, a time which can be incredibly vibrant and upbeat. This is the 1st of 2 lunation’s occurring in the sign of Leo in one month, the second will be the Black Moon, and the Solar Eclipse. With the North node, the point of destiny also now in Leo, this is an opportunity for us to all revitalize our hopes, in whatever area of our Solar Horoscope Leo occupies. But a sense of new beginnings, energies, possibilities is going to pulsate outwards.

Astrology Overview for WC 10th July 2017

The week begins with the tremendous intensity of last week’s Full Moon providing a very potent backdrop. Whatever our situations, there can be a degree of push and pull in terms of our needs and demands. With Mars and the Sun also combining in an obtuse angle to the strict energies of Saturn, there can be a sense of frustration and limitation if it seems emotional dynamics are overriding the facts or reality of a situation. Stand firm against anyone who tends to use a more coercive approach in their dealings.

Fortunately, a quite beautiful link between Mercury and Venus , does give us all an opportunity to levitate the atmosphere, by embracing a more playful and sociable vibe. So if we find ourselves taking something really seriously this week, it may be as well to just step back, take a moment to compose ourselves, and perhaps look at it again, in a new light. Also breaking out of pressurized situations and doing something completely different can also be very positive.

The Quarter Moon at the end of this week however, does emphasize the importance of balancing our individual desires against what is good for us at a more personal or emotional level.

Astrology Overview for WC 3rd July 2017

Mars and Pluto continue their feisty feud. We need to continue to know which disputes to engage with, and which to walk away from. Ironically, the Sun forges a truly lovely link to Neptune which asks us to try to react in a humanistic way to any tensions. Seeing why someone may be stressed or finding things difficult, can help us to marshal our own frustrations with them. If you are someone who enjoys fund raising for good causes or doing your bit for those who are less fortunate. If you have a more spiritual dimension in your situation, this too can come to the fore all week.

Wednesday and Thursday see dramatic changes in the heavens, with Venus arriving in Gemini and Mercury in Leo. Although there is that rather more nurturing vibe from the Sun in Cancer, these planetary relocation’s can create more sociable vibe. Inviting friends or family around for a gathering is possible, and this can prove to be very enjoyable.

All this week also sees a fine link between the steadying energies of Saturn in Sagittarius and the Point of Destiny in Leo. New strands, even if dramatic and different can flourish, if they are well thought through and planned.

Sunday sees a Full Moon in Capricorn but this does conjoin with the deep and transformational energies of Pluto and opposing the Sun conjoining with Mars, therefore care is needed around balancing the more emotional and practical elements of our situations and more broadly home and worldly affairs.

Astrology Overview for WC 26th June 2017

This is set to be one of most intense weeks of the whole year and begins with Venus continuing its fabulous angle to Pluto on Monday and Tuesday. This is an influence which can heighten our awareness of the people who are truly valuable to us in our lives. From this a romantic relationship could take on more energy and go through a sense of renewal, or it could be another close link that we can become more appreciative of.

Mercury and Mars are also in a tight combination in Cancer which will go on all week. Furthermore they forge a very positive angle with Neptune in the week’s first half. This asks us to tune in sensitively to atmospheres and is use our more sensory powers in the way we communicate. As it happens this can prove to be of vital help because from Tuesday till Sunday both Mars and Mercury go into opposition with Pluto. Mars in opposition with Pluto, in particular, can be one of the most tricky of all to deal with. There can be huge clashes of will, and people taking entrenched positions or trying to force their views on to others. Avoid people who are known to have more aggressive tendencies or even tougher parts of your locality.

If there is someone in your circle or workplace already who tends to assert their energy powerfully, you may find yourself being more irritated by them. Look to reinforce your boundaries in order to deal with this. Equally, be sure not to be too evangelical or dogmatic about any ideas you may have. Because Mars is in detriment in Cancer, and Mercury does less well in this watery sign, there could be a tendency to react too quickly to what people says, so avoiding a rash responses is essential.
Both Mercury and Mars also clashed with Jupiter, so if we make claims it is going to be important that we can back these up with hard and fast facts, and not be too self-promotional. With the Quarter Moon on Saturday in the sign of Libra, balancing the more emotional facets of relating with our ideas or principles and beliefs is also going to take a degree of care.

Astrology Overview for WC 19th June 2017

The week begins with the North Node, the point of destiny, angling towards Uranus, the planet of surprises. This is a great opportunity for us all to bring a degree of drama and panache into what we are trying to do. After the worthy and service orientated inverse journey through Virgo, now the North Node is urging us to show how talented we can be and the flair that we can demonstrate. In this alliance this could mean pushing the boundaries a little bit and being a little more daring around some of our hopes and expectations.

The Sun and Mercury also forge a fantastic link all week, firstly on Monday and Tuesday in Gemini, and from Wednesday in Cancer . When these two are closely aligned it creates a greater vibration around communications, and how we think, and there could be some moments of absolute ingenuity. But equally we could jump to conclusions around situations before we properly digest the facts so it is going to be really important, not to make assumptions.

However Mercury in the sign of Cancer is an inherently complex location, so until he moves into Leo on 6th July, we need to be sure that were not being overly subjective in how we receive what other people say. It’s possible to take things personally during this time, or misconstrue where people are coming from. The logic of Mercury is somewhat submerged under the watery energies of Cancer. Yet whilst the Sun and Mercury are side-by-side in the second half of this week and there is a New Moon in Cancer on Saturday, there is an opportunity for us all to think about the foundations in our situations, about our physical and emotional environments, where we live who with and how, family interactions, and the whole concept of security. Staying attuned to our senses is going to be very important for the next month.

The second half of this week also sees two very important trine’s, the most enabling of planetary aspects or angles of 190° . This sees Venus forging a deep bond with the planet of truth, change and power, Pluto , and also Mars forging a delicious link with Neptune . Venus’s angle to Pluto can make as much more conscious of the people who really matter in our situations. Everyday scenarios of shopping, cooking, routines, and the like can sometimes erode our consciousness of the value and importance of certain connections. These can become much more obvious to us. If you meet someone and really chime, this could turn out to be a very important relationship, where you may share a deep bond for some time to come. With Mars also in its trine to Neptune our own desire to get what’s good for us on an individual basis, is softened by the more spiritual and self-sacrificing impact of Neptune. So all in all the second half of this week can be a very interesting time in terms of our emotional well-being and interactions with others.

Astrology Overview for WC 12th June

The week begins with Mercury forging a fantastic alliance with Jupiter , the planet of growth. Conversations can prove bright bubbly and optimistic, or or can they? I ask, because also throughout the whole week the Sun in Gemini, is in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius . This therefore also activates the 3rd/9th house axis, which is also to do with communication. So, although there is this potential for more bubbly interaction, equally we also have to be thoughtful, precise and meaningful in what we say, otherwise people could pick up on it, either in social or more formal situations and challenges follow.

The great news however is that Jupiter is now moving forwards after its recent four-month retrograde, and in general in the sign of Libra, he is asking us to become much more conscious of our attitudes to interactions with others, our relationships in general, and the gift of understanding how life feels for others – even if it’s different to us. The thing is though, despite Jupiter now travelling forwards, he is still forging a Quincunx with the dreamy and drifting energies of Neptune. Understanding our needs and relationships and not becoming overwhelmed by the demands and expectations of others will continue to be the trick.

Ironically Venus the planet of relating but now in the sign of Taurus, forges a gorgeous link with Neptune on Saturday and Sunday. This reminds us that sensitivity and kindness are qualities we can all aspire to all of the time. The second slice of irony however comes from the fact that Neptune itself begins its own 5 1/2 month annual retrograde on Friday.

The Sun however does, despite its opposition with Saturn, forge a fine link with Uranus , urging us to expand our awareness to new ideas, innovation, and to upgrade our thinking where it is appropriate. This would be a fine time to buy a new bicycle, perhaps dual powered car – believe it or not, or to spontaneously get out and about and enjoy lots of small but interesting local trips. If you are someone who has a love of technology, as long as you have done your research and thought things through carefully (Saturn in Sagittarius) then this also can be a positive time of progress.

Astrology Overview for WC 5th June 2017

The week begins with the powerful energies of Mars arriving in the sign of Cancer. Mars is in fall in this location, and with its fiery vibe tempered by the more watery and emotional influence of the Moon, the ruler of Cancer, it is going to be important in the next six weeks for us all to not be too reactive when it comes to any more sensitive issues. Where Mars in this location can be positive is helping us to be more physically active around any changes we wish to make to our homes, be it structural or decorative, or being more motivated to work from our abodes, or create more dynamism around family activities.

On Tuesday, Venus returns home to the sign of Taurus where she is going to be very content over the next twenty eight days. Anything to do with creativity, natural, earthy pleasures, the arts, pottery, home crafts, and good food and wine, are all going to be augmented by this transit. This is also a lovely location in terms of upping the more intimate, sensual side of a close relationship.

Now Venus and Mars are going to spend the rest of this week in a lovely sextile, which is very enabling for relationships, but with Mars to still little bit sheltered, it could be that’s any kind of introduction or improvement around a relationship matter, may come from the prompt of a very close friend, or someone who makes an introduction through a family contact.

On Wednesday, Mercury returns to the sign of Gemini, one of the two zodiac signs he governs, and the next twenty one days can really be a fine opportunity to engage our minds, to be more inquisitive, learn new information, or share talents and skills that we have to a wider audience. This influence to can also be helpful around siblings and neighbours or community matters.

Yet if you tuned in last week you’ll know that the Sun is continuing to square up to the eroding influence of Neptune . So staying focused on the things that are really essential and not letting vague doubts or suggestions undermine confidence does continue to be important. Energy can also be affected by this.

On Friday two major events occur. The first sees Jupiter go direct after a four-month retrograde and this is something we can all celebrate. But there is also a Full Moon in the sign of Sagittarius. This cautions us to be clear in what we’re thinking or articulating to others, and also around travel plans. Anything to do contracts, legal negotiations and the like, will require great care in the following two weeks. Ironically, with Jupiter going forwards this actually can be a very helpful factor around precisely the same areas.

Another very positive feature of this week is that the North Node, now becoming more established in the sign of Leo , is forging a fabulous angle to Uranus, all week. In general this is encouraging us to be much more out there with the things that are important to us, and not be so concerned that people might be judging us or have a different approach to life. So if there is anything very individualistic you wanting to do, this certainly will help.

Astrology Overview for WC 29th May 2017

The week begins with the vibrant energies of last week’s New Moon in Gemini still bubbling away in the heavens. This is augmented this week by one of the most fortunate of all planetary influences, the Sun’s trine to Jupiter. This can help is to feel physically better, to be more active, to engage more with others, and most of all feel that some kind of goodness can come from such exchanges – after all, Jupiter is the planet of good fortune.

In addition to this, Mars also in Gemini is forging a really exciting angle with Uranus , the planet of restlessness. This influence can push us out of our comfort zones, and give us the desire to do something more spontaneously and not be hemmed in by tradition – in the way that we’ve done things in the past. The more spontaneous we can be, the better.

At the heart of the week from Tuesday through to Thursday Mercury is also forging a perfect trine with Pluto . With both located in earth signs, in Taurus and Capricorn respectively, our ability to penetrate down to understand what is really tangible and beneficial to us is going to be very strong. If there is any kind of puzzle that needs to be unpicked in our lives, this will certainly help us to do it.

The second half of the week however, does see a more challenging influence as the Sun begins to square with Neptune which is going to last for the next week. This could erode our energy, especially where we are not really focused, so is going to be important to be very clear in what were trying to achieve. Because of the relative locations of both the Sun and Neptune there could be some gossip going round in the last half of this week. Stay clear of anyone who tends to have a negative impact on your sense of well-being.

Thursday also sees a Quarter Moon in the sign of Virgo. This can create quite a crackling atmosphere in its square with the Sun, for though both are mutable or flexible signs, both are ruled by Mercury, which is all about precision in Virgo but also rules the nervous system. So is going to be important to fine-tune those activities even more, or a degree of stress could be generated by the end of this week.

So, in summary, we have a week where we can feel optimistic hopeful active sociable but this needs to be tempered by need not to get too scattered or to lose focus on what’s really essential.
