Transits

Venus in Scorpio: into the deep

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted!

Suffice to say that this week’s astro insight, featuring Venus in Scorpio, will probably be [read more...]

Saturn square Neptune is upon us.

Mars Venus conjunction: integrating masculine and feminine

The Mars Venus conjunction comes into orb again from 30 October to 5 November and this time I’ve been thinking about the inner masculine and feminine, the yin and yang within, or what Jung calls the anima and the animus.

Venus trine Pluto and Jupiter: powerful and abundant together

As the Sun moves away from Black Moon Lilith and Chiron, and the square to the Moon Nodes loosens, we are seeing a series of powerful positive aspects that provide support for the shifts that are taking place as a result of the disruption of COVID-19.

Venus square Saturn: reach out to someone you love

Don’t you love the pic for this weeks update? I think it represents Venus square Saturn so well: that feeling of wanting to reach out to someone but being stuck inside yourself, unable to express your affection or ask for support.

Jupiter opposition Neptune is the major transiting aspect for September, affecting us on both the personal and societal levels.

Mercury retrograde in Libra: why you might not even feel it

I’ve been thinking a lot about how certain transits affect us differently depending on what else we have going on in our charts. For example Mercury retrograde can cause absolute havoc in the life of someone who’s Mercury is badly aspected, or receiving a major transit from one of the outer planets, while another person will [read more...]

Sun trine Pluto: the art of living dangerously

Why is it sometimes so difficult to go after what we want, to let go of the things we cling to for security and move courageously into new territory? How can we learn the art of living dangerously? Perhaps one of the reasons we find it so hard is because we are not coming from a strong foundation. The earthy dynamo of Sun trine Pluto, [read more...]

Venus conjunct Mars in Leo: passionate connection

From 29 August Venus conjunct Mars brings relief from the heavy energy we’ve experienced throughout August as Jupiter, Venus and the Sun all squared Saturn. With Saturn ruling over authority, contraction, limits and rigidity, it’s likely that for many this last month has felt a bit like walking through wet concrete. Jupiter [read more...]

Jupiter in Virgo: a wild bird in a cage

On 11 August expansive Jupiter moved from fiery Leo into earthy Virgo. During it’s year long transit Jupiter in Virgo will curb our tendency to over-do things and take on too much, but may also bring a certain frustration as we are forced to ground our energy and look to the fine print when we might prefer to spread our wings and [read more...]

Saturn retrograde in Scorpio: plumbing the depths

Saturn retrograde in Scorpio – ouch! This isn’t a combination many people look forward to.
