Astrology Overview for WC 2nd October 2017

The week begins with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter for one last full week all in the sign of Libra. On the face of it this gives us an opportunity to try to reach better agreements and understandings with other people. And with Venus and Mars continuing to combine in Virgo , if we put our mind to helping people in practical and supportive ways there is every chance we can.

But Jupiter is opposed by the random influence of Uranus , and this aspect can create a degree of rebellion, outspokenness, and a more assertive vibe than would be thought to be to do with Libra. But we must always remember that this zodiac sign is Cardinal and therefore quite powerful, in a way which some people may not always appreciate. And Libra that is roused, can be just as feisty as a member of the opposite sign of Aries.

And that brings us to the Full Moon which occurs on Thursday. And the balance between doing what’s right for other people and the diplomacy which often comes in the energy of Libra is challenged by the more forthright more self-possessed vibe of this Aries Full Moon.

Furthermore from Friday through to the end of the week, the Sun starts to clash with Pluto . But the interesting thing about all these influences is that they’re all Cardinal, so the potential for power battles either within ourselves ironically about what we really want and are prepared to sacrifice to achieve, and the needs of other people can become really very potent. There may also be perceived issues around fairness and authority. So a resentment of authority or perhaps over use of authority. The Sun in Libra is about balance and fairness, whereas Capricorn the status quo and traditional power.

Astrology Overview for WC 25th September 2017

The week begins with the Sun gaining a foothold in the sign of Libra which is of course about balance, and also an air sign and therefore much to do with communication. But Libra is also about leadership, and this is a much less well-known facet of the sign. And in the four weeks ahead we have an opportunity to use the relating skills of this sign to improve all sorts of interactions with others. Venus is the ruling planet of this zodiac sign, and is about attraction, fashion, style, glamour, flair, and presentation and all of these can be affected or to the fore too.

Ironically, Venus is forging an alliance, in fact a conjunction with Mars this week. These are the two planets of love, one feminine, one masculine. And in the sign of Virgo as they are, this points towards balancing our energy and our output in our relationships but in a way which is helpful to other people, and ESPECIALLY to anyone were closely involved with. But with Neptune still on the other side of the heavens creating a murky mist, confusion and deception are also possible. So, if you find yourself attracted to someone it’s going to be important to understand your motives but also theirs too.

Mars however does forge another link this week which is incredibly powerful. This is with the planet of transformation Pluto , which itself ends a 5 1/2 month backward retrograde on Wednesday. During this time the energies of Capricorn combined with Pluto’s deep, penetrative and also powerful vibes, have led to quite a few international, and domestic shocks and stand-offs and power plays. However the combination of these two planets which are both the rulers of Scorpio, gives us an opportunity to really pull together all the things we want to achieve in a very determined and precise way. One of the reasons for this is that they’re both located in Earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn), therefore we going to want to see tangible progress and evidence of what we’re trying to achieve, and frankly there’s a good chance we can.

Also by the end of the week on Saturday, Mercury joins with the Sun in the sign of Libra. Mercury is very very well-positioned here, because this can help us to think very carefully about how we can achieve greater equilibrium in all sorts of ties, but perhaps also be a little bit more detached in or approach, for example considering the other person’s viewpoint more and not taking things quite so seriously. Although Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, it can be quite picky during its transit through that zodiac sign and also it went through its big retrograde too, so this is a chance now to let things flow back and forwards in a much more fluid way

Astrology Overview for WC 18th September 2017

The week begins with the Sun, Mercury and Mars all continuing in the sign of Virgo . With Mercury also coming out of shadow and coming back to the position where its retrograde first began on the 13th August, we might think that this week could be one of great productivity, and perhaps it can be.

Not least because there is a Virgo New Moon on Wednesday, and on the same day Venus moves back into the sign too. So there is a tremendous opportunity to get things working in a more well ordered and structured way, or to look for tangible results in anything we try to achieve.

However from Monday to Thursday Mercury is in opposition to Neptune . And from Wednesday to Sunday Mars is in opposition to Neptune. Neptune therefore can distort some of the reality that that Virgo energy wants to create, not least because of the swirling mist of confusion it can create, but also there is the potential for outright deceit or to encounter rather elusive and tricky attitudes.

The best way to deal with all of this is to be very exacting in our approach, to make sure everything is micromanaged very carefully, and each individual issue is processed with a great deal of concentration and precision.

What will help all of this is that on Saturday the Sun makes its way into the more logical zodiac sign of Libra. This will help us to balance the different information in situations that we are grappling with in a more structured and well thought through way. Obviously relationships will also come sharply into focus as can our general interaction with others.

Astrology Overview for WC 11th September 2017

Hullo, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 11th September 2017. The week begins with the Sun squaring with Saturn. This can be one of the most restrictive and frustrating of all astrological angles,so it’s going to be important this week that we nail down the detail of things but don’t try to go quicker than circumstances allow.


For example avoid shortcuts as they are unlikely to render many results. If you’re working towards any targets, treble check all the information involved. This is not a time to enter into frivolous agreements. With Mercury combining with Mars in Virgo, we are given an extra chance to really bring precision to all that we do, for the soon as we spread ourselves too thinly, our energy could drop and it can be a case of diminishing returns.

The great news is that Mercury is now finding his feet back in Virgo and this of course is one of the two zodiac signs that he rules. By early next week Mercury will return to the point where the retrograde first began on the 11th August, coming out of shadow and any glitches that have occurred in the interim period can start to be resolved.

The interesting thing about this week and the overal solar horoscope is the role of Venus, which forges three very positive angles, firstly with Saturn then Jupiter and finally Uranus. Of course Jupiter and Uranus have recently been in opposition and that does continue between them. This can stir up a more rebellious side of our nature, however Venus can be a real soothing influence, and charisma can burn brightly with these combinations. But also if there is a sincere relationship developing in our situations this can be strengthened to. Alternatively we may look to reinvigorate an existing relationship. If that is the case, a fairer share of domestic chores would certainly be a great way to go forwards.

Finally this week’s Quarter Moon on Wednesday is in Gemini. Once more this just encourages us not to try too hard, to be distracted or to get to tense if we are trying to be more productive after all there are only so many hours in the day.  For more information or to watch your zodiac sign Weekly Video forecast or join me at my Amazing FREE New App http://www.horoscope-ace.com/

Astrology Overview for WC 4th September 2017

The week begins with the Sun finding its way deeper into the sign of Virgo . However at the start of the week there remains a very big Leo dimension to the heavens, not least featuring Venus and Mars .

However on Tuesday Mars relocates into the sign of Virgo, where he will be for the following six weeks. This is a much more practical transit for this zodiac sign, but Mars of course is about our own desires, instant gratification, and our impulses, whilst Virgo is a lot to do with sacrifice, and helping others. One thing we may notice during its transit as a desire to take health and fitness more seriously. However there may be times when we may need to put our own hopes on the backburner in order to help others.

HoroscopeAce App for Facebook, iOS and Android

Also on Tuesday this week, the solar horoscope for us all sees Mercury ends its backward journey in the sign of Leo, and by the end of the week on Sunday, it will itself return back to Virgo one of the two zodiac signs rules. He also forges a brilliant link with Uranus all through the week, suggesting innovation, original ideas, and thinking independently can work very well.

On Wednesday there is also a Full Moon and this is a particularly powerful Full Moon because Neptune , the planet of dreams, is going to be directly alongside the Moon in Pisces, and of course both will reflect back across the heavens to the Sun in Virgo. The chances are the any desire we have to make things work more efficiently, may be counted by some very hard to understand anxieties. Physical vitality can also be affected by this. So it is going to be important to really focus on our thinking and actions precisely.

Neptune is also powerful this week in that it is forging a link with Venus. Therefore Venus gets caught up in this lunation too. I think the overriding vibe is that we need to be as realistic as possible. This can be around everyday matters but also it can be about money and also our love life. However I do so by the end of the week generally many of us will start to feel a greater sense a clarity emerging.

Astrology Overview for WC 28th August 2017

The week begins with Jupiter continuing its fine angle to Saturn . If we think that both these planets represent different energies in that Jupiter is about growth, expansion, optimism, hopefulness and positivity, and Saturn can be about contraction, obstacles and being realistic, or even sometimes see us pessimistic about situations, if we put the two together as happens this week, they can bring out the best in one another. So anything where we’ve done careful research, or where we are cooperating well with others, can show signs of improving, on a steady but step-by-step basis.

From Tuesday through to Sunday, Uranus also forges a brilliant angle to Mars. This is a much more go-getting influence, and especially regarding being more spontaneous, or even embracing our more freedom loving or daring sides. Even if you’re someone who tends to avoid speculative ventures and can be quite cautious or conservative in general to life, this aspect brings a real sense of aliveness and spontaneity to bear.

Tuesday also sees a Quarter Moon in the sign of Sagittarius . The energy for us all therefore for the rest of the week cautions us not a promise more than we can realistically deliver, but also to be conscious of protecting our own need for space from the demands of everyday chores and domesticity. Of course some things do have to be done and we do have to make sacrifices, but it’s like finding a balance.

Of course Mercury has been tracking backwards recently and that continues this week, but by Friday it inverts into the sign of Leo. It will be in this zodiac sign through till 9th September. The things that govern Leo energy, in other words creativity, self-expression, sociability, fun, and romantic situations, can all be affected therefore by the usual Mercury retrograde potential for changes of plan and misunderstandings. However, equally it can be a time to mend things too. By your darling

These misunderstandings can be ramped-up to an even higher level when from Friday through to Sunday the Sun is in opposition to Neptune. This particular aspect can also be quite draining so even if we’ve set ourselves some quite virtuous targets for the weekend as far as do-it-yourself gardening issues or even physical exercise we just need to be mindful that we might not’s biting point of quite the same level of drive or vibrancy to achieve what we wanted to do.

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.

HoroscopeAce App for Facebook, iOS and Android

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 14th August 2017

The week begins with Mercury’s retrograde really beginning to bite home. But perhaps what is even more telling is the fact that Mercury is in an opposition with Neptune and right through till Friday. This is not an aspect to be taken lightly. Neptune is very shimmering. It’s fantastic for spirituality, the arts, creativity, and tuning into the less tangible sides of our existence, and especially now it is back in its home zone of Pisces since 2012.

But Neptune can also distort reality, and because Mercury is very much about facts and figures, and particularly in one of its two home zones as it is now of Virgo, this and the combination of the retrograde means that we need to be particularly careful when dealing with any kind of paperwork, administration, contracts, but also in balancing our health. Why would this be so? Because Virgo is about health, but it’s also about purity. Neptune rules the things that we tend to use in order to escape reality, so if we imbibe in those to any degree beyond what’s really good for us, this is going to impact on our nervous systems, which Mercury rules, and also a clarity of thought and action.

HoroscopeAce App for Facebook, iOS and Android

However ironically, speaking of action, there is a fantastic angle between Mars and Jupiter which continues from last week, which is just so trailblazing, and gives us the opportunity to live in the moment and be a bit more daring and see where it takes us. If there is something that you’re very clear about your strategy, but you also instinctively feel it’s the right thing to do this can be a fine time to go for it. We can have a sense of confidence that everything will work out fine. The problem with Mars and Jupiter in any combination is they can trick us into believing that we can’t fail, and clearly with the more challenging influences this week, there is the potential for things to go awry.

From Monday to Friday also sees Venus in an opposition with Pluto. In a kind of mawkish fascinated way, I find aspects between these two planets always absolutely fascinating. One of the reasons I got into doing what I do is simply because I’m addicted to knowing about people and what makes them tick. And this aspect is a great deal to do with our desires. Now desires are a very good thing because they gives us a sense of passion for life. And used in the right kind of way that can stimulate growth and provide great opportunities for enjoyment and in the case of Venus and Pluto a deep sense of unity when it comes to relationships and even sensual pleasures. Now clearly Pluto is about power, so if anyone seems to be quite seductively trying to tempt you into a get rich quick scheme this week or even a sexual relationship, you just need to be really clear about what your terms of references are and just how flexible you want to be about these.

The end of the week however does see the Solar Eclipse in Leo. This is forging an angle to Uranus the planet of freedom. Of course Leonine energy is very much about self-expression, so the inference is clear here that there is an opportunity in the next six months to get hold of whatever essential energy drives us on and try to use it to transform our situations but in a way where we don’t’s resist possibilities because it’s stepping outside our comfort zones. So this might be a scintillating period but also one that can create a degree of turbulence.

Astrology Overview for WC 7th August 2017

The week begins with the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, generating huge amounts of energy. As it links to the planet of opportunity Jupiter, located at present in the sign of Libra, all this airy energy is a counterpoint to the roar of the Lion, and where the Sun and Mars are located, along with the North node the point of destiny, in the sign of Leo.

If you think about it Leo is about actualizing our own individuality. With Aquarius energy is very much about the collective. Balancing the give-and-take in relationships between what’s good for us personally and what’s good for the needs of those people we care about is a clue of what this Eclipse will influence. As much as we may all want to pursue our own agendas, and sometimes it’s very important to do so, equally if we stay mindful of the bigger picture this can help us to find a good balance. However if there is any relationship which seems unjust – the energies of Jupiter, then we are going to seriously reconsider this in the following months.

HoroscopeAce App for Facebook, iOS and Android

This week continues to see a lovely angle however between Venus and Mercury, located respectively in Cancer and in Virgo, which brings a more nurturing and practical dimension to the situation. However Mars is also a truly influential planet this week. Why? Well he is forging a sensational link with Jupiter which can give us a sense that everything is possible, and also see is a lot more risk-taking. But equally he is in a Quincunx with the rather distorting energies of Neptune. It’s important therefore that when it comes to our desires that we are very clear about what these are, and whether they are realistic or not.

By Sunday Mercury enters a retrograde. He will continue to retrace his steps in the sign of Virgo through to the end of this month. He won’t re-emerge back into the sign of the virgin until the 10th of September. Yet it will be 19th September before Mercury returns to the point where this retrograde begins. During this period of time therefore being very precise in all we do is absolutely essential. As you will know with Mercury retrograde all sorts of snags and snares just seem to happen. But if you are travelling anywhere and in particular using airports or ferries, these with regular consistency seem to be affected more than most. Also handling paperwork, correspondence and buying and selling, are all going to require a higher degree of concentration to try to limit the potential for all this to unfold.

Astrology Overview for WC 31st July 2017

The week begins with the Sun burning brightly in the sign of Leo. This of course is its home position, and along with Mars is providing a fantastic level of vibrancy energy and drive at this time. This is a wonderful week for us all to embrace our creative qualities, and the more playful strands of life too. Look to be as self expressive as possible.

However despite this, Venus moves into the more reflective location, of Cancer on Tuesday, however she does make a fine link with the practical energies of Mercury, so if you want to direct the creativity that comes from the Sun and Mars into beautifying your home creating a new Home Office or working on the outside space to make it more pleasant and peaceful, all this can be a great thing to do

HoroscopeAce App for Facebook, iOS and Android

On Thursday Uranus goes into a retrograde. This will last for 5 1/2 months, and asks us to think carefully about our need for freedom, just how self expressive we feel we can be and are there any relationships in our lives, which are too codependent, or compromised by the needs of others.

The other big influence this week concerns Jupiter and Pluto. When these two are in a square as they are here, there can be a tendency to chase down our ambitions at the cost of doing things in a right and proper way. For example if we have an opportunity to progress but are tempted by a shortcut, one that may run against our values, or even be unethical or may see someone else suffer in order that we reach our personal goals, then do try to resist. However this aspect can still be very good for making progress, being self-confident, and showing drive, as long as we can maintain our relationships within our ambitions.
