Mars square Pluto: struggle is optional

It may be a difficult day for some people out there. Transiting Mars square Pluto is coming into exact aspect today and within a few days will also oppose Uranus, creating a t-square with the wide square between Uranus and Pluto. This is creating some very volatile but frustrated energy that is likely to have you feeling somewhat at odds [read more...]

Venus in Scorpio: into the deep

I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted! Whether this is wholly due to Saturn square Neptune, exact on 26 November, is another question, although with the Sun conjunct Saturn and square Neptune right now it’s quite likely. Suffice to say that this week’s astro insight, featuring Venus in Scorpio, will probably be [read more...]

Saturn square Neptune: sweet illusion meets cold hard reality

Saturn square Neptune is upon us. If you’re affected strongly by this transit it’s likely something you’ve put a lot of time and energy into building is now dissolving right before your eyes, something you’ve come to rely heavily upon now seems to have no substance at all, or perhaps a belief or philosophy you [read more...]

Venus square Pluto: beware of overpowering others

The transit to watch out for this week is the brief but potent Venus square Pluto, which could really pack a punch in the relationship department, particularly if your natal planets or points are triggered.

Parenting by the Moon

You’ve probably heard of ‘gardening by the Moon’, of planting at New Moon and weeding as the Moon wanes, but what about parenting by the Moon? Many people think the lunar cycles are reflected everywhere in the ebb and flow of daily life. Last year I began to notice distinct synchronicities between the Moon and my life. I would [read more...]

Why letting go is the only way to beat a difficult transit

A major transit from one of the slow moving outer planets to a planet or point in your natal chart usually translates into big life change, usually over the course of several years. This can leave us feeling confused, frightened and often completely wrung out. Sometimes it’s a real challenge to keep our emotional head above water. [read more...]

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. With both Venus and Mars conjunct Jupiter this is a great time for opening up to a more balanced way of [read more...]

Venus trine Pluto and a triple conjunction: all power to you!

Bringing passion to relationships is what Venus and Pluto do best and Venus trine Pluto brings passion of the best kind. With Venus in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn this is a deep, earthy passion that puts me in mind of sexy outdoor liaisons. It’s also not the kind of energy that’s flippant or superficial; both Capricorn and [read more...]

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. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could let go of our self-doubt and inhibitions and reach out freely [read more...]

Jupiter trine Pluto: the magic of ambition and synchronicity

On the 11 October Jupiter trine Pluto will give us a powerful boost of energy. This energy is already in affect and will last from 27 September to 29 October. With Jupiter at 13 degrees Virgo and Pluto direct again at 13 degrees Capricorn, this is a very earthy energy that is perfect for manifesting something very concrete at the [read more...]

Blood moon lunar eclipse in Aries: birthing is painful

Here in Europe the much anticipated total lunar eclipse in Aries occurs in the early morning of 28 September. Because the Moon is at its ‘perigee’ (at its closest to the Earth) this lunar eclipse will appear much larger than usual, a phenomena that some modern astrologers call a Super Moon. As it will also be tinged red by [read more...]

Jupiter opposition Neptune: what is truth?

Jupiter opposition Neptune is the major transiting aspect for September, affecting us on both the personal and societal levels. Exact on 17 September this transit will last all month and, if it touches one of your personal planets or points, could have a major impact on your religious and/or philosophical beliefs. With Jupiter now at 9 [read more...]

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...]

Full Moon in Pisces: balance mundane and sacred

Apart from the gathering fire trine between Venus/Mars in Leo and Uranus in Aries, the Full Moon in Pisces of 29 August is focused almost entirely on the polarity between Virgo and Pisces. Not only do we see the usual opposition between the Sun and Moon that is the signature of every Full Moon, but this month Jupiter and Neptune conjoin [read more...]
