NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 2021

From British Vogue

NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS 

FRI 12th FEB @ 6:16am AEDT 

23 ° Aquarius 

The New Moon in Aquarius will be one unlike any other, thanks to 6 of the 7 inner planets being in Aquarius at this lunation, creating a huge Aquarian stellium or line-up. This is rare and last occurred 59 years ago; feeding an extraordinary amount of planetary energy into the Aquarian sector of your chart/life. 

Aquarius, the water bearer is the provider and the support system, which is always working towards a point of wholeness or completion.  It is perhaps at this new moon; we can look to the Aquarian aspects of our lives with the intent to bring more support and structure into what we strive to complete or bring wholeness around these topics of life.  

Aquarian’s are individual within the collective, they hold their individuality and uniqueness, within the space of others; they are able to be themselves, whilst assisting others to help create community, it might just not be in the most traditional of ways. This new moon creates strong opportunity to workshop new pathways to evolve and sets up a deep incubation phase, of the Aquarian qualities of above and bringing them to life.

Venus and Jupiter conjoin at 12 °at this new moon, helping to harmonise the blending of big visions, optimism, new lessons and teachings, combined with attractive connection to those who you really vibe with. Jupiter fresh from his cazimi, helps to energize Venus, as she finishes her current cycle. Having the two benefic’s in-aspect at this lunation is a good thing, bringing in a more positive and optimistic flavour.

Mercury, still currently retrograde in Aquarius offers the benefit of reflection and insights. It’s only through looking back or re-looking at ourselves; we are able to know more clearly what we do or don’t seek. It also helps us see how we have progressed. Mercury still traveling through these back-water roads, offers introspection and reflection, as the Moon itself is at its darkest, helping to deepen the unseen or seeding of the experience.  

Finally, Saturn, the ruler of this lunation will be what remains after all these planets leave Aquarius and will hold to account; asking that you keep the contracts that you make at this time. Saturn will be making sure you keep promises or contracts, once all the benefits are optimism is gone. This will be key to your success. Saturn prefers a more striped back and simple plan, one that can be stuck to!  The good news is that Saturn works well in Aquarius, so it is creating a supportive and strong foundational base for these new explorations and developments.

SATURN IN CAPRICORN: WALKING FROM THE DARKNESS

NICK CAVE : Still from ‘Idiot Prayer’

SATURN IN CAPRICORN (21 DECEMBER 2017 –18 DECEMBER 2020)

14 days remain with Saturn in Capricorn.  Saturn’s transit of it’s home or domicile sign has been influencing the skyscapes since 21 December 2017. Since then Saturn has been stronger and more stern than usual, due to his rulership in Capricorn. A supercharged Saturn likes to strip back, boosts conservatism and consequences of actions Et cetera.

With conservatism and consequence being the plate du jour for the past three years and hard work with sacrifice being our new drug of choice, whether you were initially willing or not, Saturn in Capricorn has not been without it small rewards. Saturn rewards strong focus, over long periods of time and absorbing the cold hard reality checks. Saturn likes dealing with the hard and messy stuff, by cutting away, all that does not fit, or all that is not fit for purpose, sans any emotional consideration or attachment.

Saturn’s servings aren’t always pleasant, and they aren’t always palatable, which is probably why we only get a dose of Saturn in Capricorn every 28 – 30 years.  Saturnian realization’s arn’t those that come lightly. Death tends to be more prominent both physically and metaphorically and is a signifier as to when Saturn is strong in transit or strongly placed during a period of time.  Saturn nickname old father time, often pictured as death or with a scythe, is something we face more prominently when Saturn transits Capricorn.

As Saturn soaks up the last days of his transit in Capricorn, solidifying the last of his lessons or impacts, for the next 28 years, it’s a good time to reflect on the lessons , re-routes, ambitions, the losses, the grief, the depression, the reality checks, the small incremental wins and what has survived outside all the suffering of the past 3 years.

Saturn as it leaves Capricorn; begins to perfect its aspect to Jupiter. Creating what Astrologers refer to as the “Great Conjunction”. The “Great Conjunction” as Astrologer Austin Coppock has outlined, is one the main timekeepers for humanity’s ability to keep time and records, outside the rising of the Sun each day, and the Lunar cycles and phases. Saturn Jupiter conjunctions can be seen as an extension of the astronomical clock for measuring time as humans, marking consistently 20 year, 200 year or 800 year cycles. This Saturn cycle, sees his exit from Capricorn, coinciding with the beginning of all three new cycles of time at once with this great conjunction with Jupiter.

Saturn moving out of Capricorn, and its meeting Jupiter, begins a new 20, 200-year cycle, that was last seen 800 years ago simultaneously. Not a bad punch to leave on for old father time as he exits a sign of such strength and renewal. The perfection of Saturn or “Old Father Time” to leave Capricorn and then begin these’s cycle on the Summer/Winter Solstice, shows that for all his coldness and sternness, Saturn isn’t afraid to try new things and continues to play with our perceptions and experience of what time is and how it impacts us.

Now is a great time to look over the difficulties, reality checks, the hard work, the lessons, our relationship with time and ageing along with what we wish to plan and achieve as small yet realistic goals over the next 28 year Saturn cycle. Saturn leaves a place of strength and authority, so this is an important cycle that is resetting. Things will clearly be different in 28 years time, But the aim is to make it better and to plan out the best road forwards, minimising the aggressive consequences to our actions. Now we need to start choosing our decisions more wisely and think about what we can cut back, and sustain, over longer periods of time. Climate change and sustainable living seems to be an obvious and urgent part of this narrative, as we come to the end of 2020 and this Saturn in Capricorn cycle.

To be honest, its a transit people probably wont miss, but its one we need to keep in the back of our minds. Old Father Time never forgets. As Saturn continues his way in to Aquarius, a sign Saturn also rules, we look to the differences of the two signs and how Saturn can rule two signs with such different significations and purposes. In Aquarius the rules are different and the topography very different, as we move from the dizzying heights and lonely terrain we have been navigating in Capricorn, into a space of vision and aspirations with more inclusiveness and collectable accountability. More on this soon, along with the impending Jupiter Saturn conjunction. But for now, Saturn, as you sit upon my Sun for the third time this year……. I bid you Adieu. Those with heavy Capricorn placements, for example Sun, Moon or Ascendant, can finally sigh in relief, as our once in 28 year lessons in responsibility, action and consequence begins to fade into a new experiences.

OCTOBER MONTHLY HOROSCOPES 2020

IMAGE : HELENA BONHAM CARTER 1980s

The Astrological weather for October is choppy to say the least, with the upcoming Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, coinciding with its ruler, Mars also being retrograde in Aries. These retrogrades are along side some rather challenging lunation’s this month, so strong precaution is advised; for both how you use this energy and what battles you decide to take on. October is a month where caution and self care will stand in good stead. Pushing forwards with activities and intentions that feel like they are an uphill battle, or a struggling to get up and running, most likely need more time to develop and nurture.

The Month opens on October 1st/2nd, with a full moon in Aries making it a potentially hostile lunation due to its increasing proximity to Mars. The following day (October 2nd/3rd) may present some hostility or aggression being exhibited, as emotions (the Moon) may spill over or become abrasive and hostile (Mars) as the two finally conjoin.

The New Moon in Libra on October 16th also finds itself in a rather difficult situation, as it is opposed by Mars and squared by both Saturn and Pluto. Following the familiar terrain of other plants who have run the gauntlet through the late cardinal degrees in recent months. Having the luminaries (The Sun and Moon) as the meat or protein in a Malefic sandwich, we have all established is no fun, and definitely NOT the kind of energy you want to be manifesting or drawing down your life long dreams from.

Overall, its a month to sit tight in and navigate the choppy weather through awareness and self care. October is one of the more trickier months in 2020, so proceed with care and know once we have moved past October, we will be beginning to near the end of the Cardinal Crush. Meaning, the planetary energies will begin to separate slight and not challenge each other so much. If you have any major planets (Sun, Moon, Ascendant especially) in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, know that we are almost at the end of some once in a life time astrology. You have got this !

ARIES / ARIES RISING

Venus makes her way through your health and wellbeing sector delivering grace and joy to all matters pertaining to this area. While Venus is in Virgo you can enjoy an eye for details and an atmosphere of cohesion. However, Venus can be overly nit-picky here so remember to monitor the levels of critique, so you don’t overdo it. The Sun in balancing Libra offers stability by collaborating with others.

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING

The Sun’s yearly passage through Libra energizes your health and wellbeing sector. Radiating and energizing it helps centre goals around these topics, making them more of a priority. Consistency with your routines allows you to maintain vitality, in-turn minimising problems. Venus in her house joy and in Libra stimulates strong reconnection to your favourite activities or allows more harmonious connection with children.

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING

Mercury retrogrades in your health and wellbeing sector encouraging you to dig deeper and re-evaluate influences or distractions within your areas of self-care and health. Picking apart, fine-tuning or reworking your routines is supported by this retrograde. Rewards, however, will be seen elsewhere as the Sun in Libra shows you where newfound and re-energized time can be used by shinning a light on things you love that may have fallen to the wayside.

CANCER / CANCER RISING

The Sun brings radiance in the home and family realms. Time spent around the home or with family is the perfect way to rest and recharge and bring about more balance with wellness. Venus makes herself busy, happily overhauling your scheduling and communication sectors, which allows for greater freedom of time for Spring and Summer.

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING

Venus moves through your body and vitality sector creating the perfect opportunity to flex and extend; enjoy the process and the results. Venus is working to bring more fun and freshness, less micromanagement and just letting the magic happen.  Seize the opportunity to appreciate your worth or benefit from financial gains as the Sun works its way through your money sector.

Take comfort and find vitality by centring yourself around your natural leadership qualities and affirming your goals.   Venus, your ruler, will be working to untie knot or confusing threads in the backdrop of your subconscious sector. Both the Sun and Venus will be working to bring about balance to your inner and outer selves leading to greater wellness.

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING

Attempts to assert and communicate might feel like they are being held back with the Mercury Retrograde in your sign from mid-month.

The Sun highlights career and reputation, the goals around this become clearer and you may be seeking more acknowledgement around such leadership abilities. With the Sun’s clear vision, you might also be seen for it.

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING

Venus in the ultra-picky sign of Virgo is beneficial for all forms of analysis around shared resources. Loans, Taxes or any form of resource that you use from others is given an increased eye for detail, creating opportunity to benefit and capitalise.

Communications which develop and extend personal beliefs and philosophies assist in making changes to your values and belief systems.

MERCURY IN SCORPIO 2020: THE EXTENDED EDITION

IMAGE : Kate Bush

MERCURY IN SCORPIO ⚡️ (27 SEPT – 2 DEC)🔮 

Mercury’s ingress into Scorpio sees us moving away from the hostilities of the (Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra axis) and dive into the deep chasm of Scorpio’s fixed water.  

Mercury’s time in Scorpio is giving off a strong Hecate vibe, where looking deep into the stagnate waters gives opportunity to claim authority, authorship and divinity through these underworld waterscapes. 

Scorpio is a private yin fixed water sign and a place Mercury can work well.  Mercury enjoys the sharp focus and dedication that Scorpio offers. However, the strong emotional ambiance of Scorpio can detract from the clarity of information that Mercury is seeking. Being mindful of the nature AND intent of these obsessive and fixations, is one important proviso for this transit.  

Mars, rules Scorpio and is extremely strong right now, giving Mercury’s time in Scorpio a little extra heat and bite. This blurs the line around the separation of emotion from the information and increases the likelihood of strong emotions to flare up, to be engaged with.  

Scorpio is a sign that likes to look at things that others refuse to, creating space to hold and engage. It’s not always pleasant going through the muck and sorting through the crap to help unblock the blockages; but it’s something that Mercury in Scorpio excels at! 

Mercury has an extended stay in Scorpio thanks to its Retrograde cycle (14 Oct – 4 Nov). We are already in the shadow period. Mercury will also be opposing Uranus. Making this transit, potentially very fruitful with regards to innovating and individualising the area of your chart that Scorpio lords over and reconnecting an emotional intelligence to it.

WHEN JUPITER TURNS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN …

Jupiter turned direct in Capricorn over the weekend which isn’t a bad thing, it just not an overly huge thing in the context of it all.  Jupiter maybe direct, but extremely limited with what it can do. Jupiter is in a sign it doesn’t relate to in Capricorn as well having to live with the cold, domineering, tyrannous flatmate called Saturn. Saturn is strong in Capricorn, so it’s his way or the highway, Jupiter hasn’t got much muscle flex around here. Pluto is also bunking in there in all his dark cave like qualities. Add to this the aspects to Mars in Aries, and Jupiter direct kind of just means he has to deal with the implications of connecting his gloomy flatmates, and volatile neighbours. Jupiter in Capricorn is hardly the barrel of laughs that Jupiter is known for or enjoys. In 2020 this has been taken to the extreme thanks to the hostility that surrounds poor Jupiter.

Jupiter direct however does mean, that it is moving in the right direction, the direction of getting the hell out of there. Jupiter is now making its way towards his 3rd conjunction with Pluto. The previous 2 conjunctions were April 4, June 30, and the third hit will be 12 November 2020.    

Jupiter Pluto is a combination that can have many manifestations, depending on the sign it is occurring in. In Capricorn we can see it via the huge Covid-19 bailouts, which seemed to have helped corporations / business more than the general population. The money thrown around by global governments is Jupiter size huge, but is it going to the people who need it most?   In Melbourne the first 2 conjunctions timed pretty well closely to the establishment and re-implement of state lockdowns (remembering Jupiter Pluto are in conjunction for a week either side of these dates).  The third hit will be just after the US Presidential election. Jupiter in Capricorn is just amplifying and expanding Capricorn significations such as Government, Control and things that Jupiter doesn’t enjoy.  

So, will Jupiter be turning direct do much? Not really, especially since his retrograde cycle is very well established as a part of his cycle. I wouldn’t put too much weight on the direct motion. This is a Jupiter whose hands are bound and is basically out of action until he leaves Capricorn. Post this third date night with Pluto, he makes his way to chase down Saturn. That is its own epic story … that will soon be told. xx

August Monthly Horoscopes 2020

The Sun’s transit through Leo this August breaks up the Cardinal siege which was reactivated in late June and July by the Sun’s movement through the sign of Cancer.  June and July spot lit some incredibly difficult terrain and may have highlighted some strong issues and flaws, which need addressing over time, both internally and externally.

With the Sun moving into Leo, the motivation to fix or improve these situations, is stronger and less daunting as we see more opportunities for solution and the increasing assistance on offer, thanks to other planetary supports. The Sun’s entry into Leo on July 22nd/23rd saw clarity and strength come knocking at the door, opening new reserves of energy and inspiration, thanks to the break-up of the planetary tensions currently held on the Cardinal axis (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn).  

The Leo Sun is supported by Mars in Aries, both planets in signs of their rulership, both active planets that LOVE to move and motivate. Mars in Aries shares the same fire and yang energy as the Sun in Leo and in August they connect to each other in a supportive trine aspect.  This fire energy brings motivation, vitality and break throughs. This is the beauty of August astrologically speaking, we finally get some movement and traction.  August has a lot of yang fire energy which allows us to put our emotions aside and offers strength as well as the resolve needed as we move forwards with 2020’s challenges.

In light of all the heat and friction created by the Sun and Mars contacts all month, we also have Venus entering Cancer in the first week of August. Venus finally completes her 3-month retrograde cycle in Gemini as she shifts into Cancer giving a cooling affect to help temper all the previously mentioned fire activity. Venus will be appreciative of this entry into Cancer, an element (Water) that she enjoys, after 3 months of integration, reform, change and evolution of Gemini themes, stories and activities (communications, networks, social activities, sociability, online presences etc).  Venus moves to create a more healing and nurturing influence as she moves over some very tender Cancer territory as well as giving temperance to the extreme heat created by Sun and Mars, helping counter the potentials for burn out.

Mercury will enter Virgo, also a sign of its rulership from the 20th of August, which creates great opportunity for Mercury to do what it does, well! i.e.: write, reading, create, plan, trade, network, analysis and processing. Mercury is our intellect and our acumen, meaning late August will be excellent for Mercury type activities and initiations.

Overall August is a great month, we have 3 planets in their Rulership (The Sun, Mars and Mercury), which means they get to operate in the way they know and act best.  Things may still be very challenging, personally and globally, however August does offer some of the best Astrology for 2020, creating space to recharge and tap into The Sun (vitality, visibility and HEALTHY ego centring) Mars (energy, charge, motivation, impulse, physicality and doing) and Mercury (intellect, analyse, communications, reading, writing and business affairs). Perhaps some of the most supportive astrological transits for the 2nd half of 2020, August is a great time to help re-align and bridge as we move towards the challenging aspect of Mars retrograding in Aries later this year.

Below is a sign by sign breakdown on where this energy will be occurring in chart, on a general level. Please note, if you know your rising sign, read that as well.  If you are interested in a personalised reading, feel free to contact me direct.

New Moon in Gemini 2020

The Gemini New Moon occurs 23 May (AEST) at 2 degrees of Gemini. The New Moon or Dark Moon ( if you observe the New Moon from its first crescent of light) is where the Sun and Moon meet. The Sun and Moon align, and the Moon is unable to reflect the Sun’s light, creating darkness, a resting phase, a silent pause and space to let go and release. Restoring it’s strength for the beginning of a new Lunar Cycle. 

Mercury rules the New Moon and is strong as it’s currently in its ruling sign of Gemini. Mercury, also encounters a Retrograde Venus, conjoining it at the time of this New Moon, creating an emphasis on Mercury and Venus themes for this new lunar cycle; including: What are your Values ? ( Are the Values you hold close really being communicated especially in Relationship or Friendship ?). How you communicate, relate & network (Are you drawing people in or driving them away?), Are these really “Your” People ?, What you consume/ingest as information (is it pleasurable and of value ?), How do you bring people together to create new ideas and possessions (Does it appeal to the right people ?). It’s all highlighted by this New Moon. 

New Moons are releases, endings and new beginnings. Mercury at its strength, and Venus conjoining him, but going backwards, creating, introspection, reassessment, evaluations and allowing a pausing moment, to look at the above themes for future flourishing and growth. This is a quiet time, but powerful time to really deepen and evolve and aligning yourself with better values and stronger appeal in both Mercurial and Venusian pursuits. 

Saturn in Aquarius trine this New Moon, gives a longevity and more secure quality, creating  a supportive role, allowing for time to develop and ground these actions /decisions over a longer time scale…. Hinting that implemented changes, will have a strong foundation to grow from.
