Image by : Tim Walker

AIRES / ARIES RISING

June begins with Venus bringing nourishment and pleasure to your home and family sector. Time spent at home with family or those you consider to be family helps bind and bring you closer together. Mars, shifting mid-month into your pleasure sector motivates you to get back to the things you love that are creative and fun. The solar eclipse conjunct Mercury, who is retrograde on June 10thmay see a time of confusion that becomes clearer by month’s end.

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING

Having Mercury’s retrograde and a solar eclipse in your earned money sector indicates confusion around income or finances. Take a cautious approach and minimise any undue risks until this phase has cleared in July. Mars’ motivating influence in your home sector is suitable for making home improvements that require hard work or muscle. Jupiter offers up some beneficial people within your social circles. 

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING

Mercury, your ruler, is retrograde in June; this, combined with the solar eclipse on June 10th, might be both confusing and confronting. Matters related to how you present and are seen are evolving rapidly. Although June might be uncomfortable, by July, there will be a clearer way to move forwards and present yourself to the world. Venus is very helpful for boosting finances, while Jupiter assists with career progression.

CANCER / CANCER RISING

Venus puts you in a great light as she moves through your presentation sector, allowing others to see your graces and attractive qualities. Mars shifting into your financial sector might offer bold opportunities to strike out; however, be mindful of your motivations. Hubris is to be avoided. An active Gemini sector points to a lot going on beneath the surface. Go with it; it’s evolving. 

LEO / LEO RISING

Mars moving into your most visible chart sector indicates an excellent opportunity to work on your physical strength and health. Be mindful that it doesn’t cross over into being seen as aggressive. Venus helps smooth over matters that have been agitated or stirred up on a subconscious level. Your social sector is changing thanks to a solar eclipse and Mercury’s retrograde. Know that by July, you will find clarity; until then, it’s evolving.

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING

Mercury’s retrograde in your career and reputation sector throws a few spanners in the works. Expect the unexpected and roll with it; this area of life will be in flux until July. Mercury is your ruler, so Virgos will feel it more than most. Jupiter brings buoyancy and optimism to your one-on-one relationships, and Venus in your social sector offers strong support from those around you.

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING

Venus graces your career and reputation sector allowing for harmonious and positive results in this area of life. Jupiter adds buoyancy and optimism to your daily routine bringing emotional support to the simplest of routines and activities. From mid-month, Mars boosts your interactions and motivates your social activities. 

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING

A rather funky Mercury retrograde in your resources sector makes this area erratic and volatile all June; expect the unexpected. By July, things simmer down. Jupiter gives a wonderful boost to your love and creativity sector. Nourishing the waters and opening up new avenues, particularly in the area of love.

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING

Mercury retrograde and a solar eclipse in your relationship sector will stir things up, making signals unreadable and down-right strange. Know this is at play if things get a bit strange, the uncertainty will ease in July. Jupiter, your ruler, is back at peak strength this June, offering gifts or opportunities in your family and home sector. Sagittarians will feel like they are getting their mojo back as it activates the base of your chart. 

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING

Mercury retrograde and a Solar eclipse in your health and routine sector caution you to be mindful of your health and not overdoing things. The eclipse has a strong draining or purging effect, be aware that what you have planned might get diverted or altered. This is temporary, and things bounce back by July. Venus helps by offering support and bringing out the best in people you interact with all month, helping to smooth over any issues.

AQUARIUS  / AQUARIUS RISING

Jupiter enters your money sector for the first time in 12 years, helping boost income and self-worth. Mercury’s retrograde, along with a solar eclipse in your creativity and love sector, means reassessment – unseen influences are at play. Knowing it’s a time of change and evolution in this area of life allows you to move forwards with more clarity in July. 

PISCES / PISCES RISING

Jupiter is back in Pisces, and you’re adjusting to it being home after an absence of 12 years. It’s the beginning of a new cycle, boosting your confidence and sense of identity. Mercury’s retrograde and a solar eclipse in your home and family sector brings change, reassessment and progression. Not all of it can be seen or understood at the time. Know that matters related to your home and family are evolving.

FULL MOON IN CANCER 2020

FULL MOON IN CANCER

Ingress into Cancer 29 December @ 09:25pm AEDT

Exact 30 DEC 2020 @ 2:28pm AEDT 

La Luna’s shift into Cancer, her ruling sign marks many milestones and is a poignant end to the remarkable and one in a lifetime astrology of 2020. As I sit and watch her rise and compose my words, by candlelight, at her ingress into Cancer, it’s quite something to try and articulate. As Luna comes to her annual Cancer full moon on the final days of 2020, its very apparent the dramatic shift, away from the stresses and pressure that have been applying to her over the past three years; with the fresh sense of a new fertile space beginning to reveal.

Luna in Cancer, this time around is lighter and the space created by three years of Saturnian pressure and its weight on Luna whist transiting Cancer, is very apparent. This is the first full moon in Cancer or any moon cycle in Cancer, without Saturn being in opposition of, since December 2017. As she rises in front of me, in her first cycle sans Saturn, the weights previously imposed and the spaces created, is quite something to absorb and process. This is the full moon, in which the extent of this long term pressure finally reveals itself.

Saturn is hard on the moon as their intentions and purposes are opposite in technique, aims and what they are trying to achieve. Both planets being strong due to their rulership meant every cancer moon for the past three years was imposed with the burdens, constrictions, restrictions and judgements of Saturn’s cold harsh rays. Cancer lunations were heavier and more burdensome. It is at this lunation we begin to see the strengths and our hard-earnt achievements since, Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn, Dec 2017. Other observations might be a new form of softness, especially around things that used to have a harder edge. Calling it an emotional slog is an understatement. If you have inner planets or angles on the Cardinal axis of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries, you would have felt this much more.

This lunation is also the first lunation after the recent eclipse series, on the Gemini and Sagittarius axis.  The solar eclipse on 15thDecember 2020 being particularly harsh and potent. I don’t know many people who weren’t touched by its intensity and dramatic overtones. Having a nourishing full moon such as this one, to close out the eclipse season helps to reconcile some of the difficult things that may have been thrown up during this eclipse season, as well as feeling like the cosmic hug we needed.

So, as we round out 2020 and experience its closing as well as getting our strong dignified Cancer Moon’s back, this really feels like the perfect antidote in washing way 2020 and all the trauma, allowing us to re-centre and recharge emotionally after what can only be described as a life changing year. Paying attention to tending to ourselves and our communities, and focusing on care, mothering and nourishment as we enter 2021 seems like the perfect astrological hint, to help guide us into a new and very different world for 2021.

More to come on this separately in a new post, however December’s Jupiter Saturn conjunction, begins both a new 20 and 200 year cycle at the same time.

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO 2020

NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

SUNDAY 15 NOV 16:08 AEST 

The new moon in Scorpio is kind of an interesting one ! Mars the ruler of this lunation, is recently stationed direct. Although lacking in pace, mars is operating in the right direction and is able to build some forward motion, much like the new moon. Mars recently direct offers a positive influence after so much intensity that was created with its three months retrograde. This mars ruled new moon, offers a nice little resting/restart point. 

The New Moon has a lovely sextile to Jupiter, giving some optimism around capricornian things such as money or benefits from people in power or authoritarian roles such as workplace bosses or those who have power and influence. Be open to assistance from those in positions of authority over the next two weeks, there might be a nice helping hand. Or you take on that role and position to assist others, with your own ability to influence and help others, through your own powers and privledges.

Mercury is opposite Uranus in Taurus. Mercury sharing the same space as the new moon in Scorpio, give a little boost to mercantile things such as trade, business, perhaps writing and communication. Uranus is the unseen opportunity or idea. Be open to the unexpected opportunity of exchange.

Overall, it’s an interesting new moon, with some really nice areas for opportunity and expansion, especially as the moon waxes towards its fullness. Keeping in mind this is the last lunation before eclipse season begins. So, this is the last moon we have that isn’t impacted by eclipses for the next few lunar cycles. The new moon in Scorpio, has some nice things going on with it, so feel free to dip your toes into it and see what transpires:)

MARS IN ARIES 2020 : THE STATION DIRECT

Photographer: Camilla Akran 

MARS STATION DIRECT IN ARIES 

11:34am AEST

Today Mars the red planet, stations direct after three months of retrogradation in Aries the sign it rules, and this is great news! 

Mars, retrogrades every two years and it’s a planet that isn’t particularly fond of doing so either. Retrogrades slow down and imbed Mars, a planet whose primary significations are about motion, fast pace and action. When retrograde this pace and action slows down, it causes frustration and friction due to the lack of momentum. Such frustrations can turn inward as the environment around you slows down. Mars is powerful in Aries, due to its rulership; this coupled with the fact that mars also retrogrades least in Aries out of all of the zodiacal signs, had made the last three months particularly stressful.

Mars turned retrograde September 10thand it’s at this time reflections or struggles became more apparent or deepened. Perhaps there were other things agitating situations that you weren’t previously aware of.

Re looking at your personal power, strength or what rouses anger could have been areas for redress. Depending on where this is occurring in your personal chart. Anyone with personal planets in Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn, would have been more heavily impacted by this Mars Retrograde. Collectively Mars putting strain on Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in late Capricorn has definitely created an element of tension, that has continued to simmer over the second half of 2020. Things have been on the verge and felt like they were going to get lit and exploding at any moment.  Keeping a coolness around all the heat anger around us, has definitely been a way of life and a state of being, since Mars entered Aries on June 29th.

Mars turning direct today, does make things more erratic than usual, but the good news is, we are moving to a place where we can finally gain some traction and get things moving again with a more assured sense of what direction we wish to direct our energy. The other benefit of this movement forwards of Mars, is being able to mould our tools in a sharper and more effective fashion. Mars finally leaves Aries after 6 months (instead of the usual two months) in early January, and it is at that time, we will feel the heat turned down just a little, as we move away from the tectonic shifts of 2020’s astrology, with more tools and aids at our disposal. 

NOVEMBER 2020 MONTHLY HOROSCOPES

Nick Cave – Photographer Unknown

November opens with a Full Moon in Taurus conjoining unpredictable and innovate Uranus early on the 1st. Venus is freshly arrived into Libra, one of her ruling signs.
