Heavenly Headlines

June 2018

The Sun is in light, bright, chatty Gemini till the 21st and Mars makes no assaults on outer planets, so it should be a relatively amiable month. Gemini multi-tasks like mad, does have a darker side but usually never stays there long, opting instead for variety, choice and constant movement.  Mercury will magnify those tendencies sitting in its own sign as well until the 12th, so keeping scattered wits collected won’t be easy. Happily Venus in home-loving Cancer till the 13th will bring some respite in family indulgence and fun entertaining.

A lack-lustre, dreamy, vague square to Neptune on the 13th is the only aspect the Sun makes, otherwise life will pitter patter on enjoyably. Social high-jinks will be added to the mix from the 14th with Venus in flamboyant Leo which is never shy about declaring feelings or hiding out of sight.

In the final ten days the self-protective, emotionally-sensitive Cancer Sun picks up for four weeks. Although reputed to be good at baking apple-pies and darning socks, in reality it’s a creative sign with initiative and ambition. But always rooted in a secure family life. There will be a down moment or two around the 27th with Saturn in play; and certain projects will drag their heels with Mars going retrograde till late August. Time to hit the pause button and have a rethink,

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

1: Mercury in Gemini trine Mars in Aquarius – lively debates

Venus in Cancer trine Jupiter in Scorpio – frivolous, extravagant, sociable.

2: Venus trine Neptune in Pisces – dreamy, romantic, kind, not realistic.

6: Sun conjunct Mercury – in mental overdrive. Thinking and talking fast.

Venus square Pluto in Capricorn – emotionally intense, charming, manipulative, possessive.

OUTER PLANETS

Interest in secrets and what lies beyond reality in the hidden realms of the paranormal. Also key to the #metoo movement as it shines its light on sexuality.

Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till 2020/21 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence.

Uranus: This is the year of a change with a brief retrograde backwards. In Aries from 1 March 2011 till May 15 2018, returning briefly from early November 2018 to early March 2019, when it leaves for good – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead. From May 15 2018 into Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature. Stays for seven years.

Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.

Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.

May 2018

A much calmer month astro-wise than April with the harsh Sun Mars Saturn Pluto influences over for the time being. The steady Taurus Sun holds sway till the 21st  with a thoughtful sextile to Neptune on the 6th, a happy-go-lucky opposition to Jupiter three days later and a get-it-together trine to Pluto on the 11th.

Mid-month is where the changes start. En passant the Uranus square Mars on the 16th will throw up a few surprises, IT glitches et al. But it is the Uranus shift into Taurus on the 15th which is the headline news, since it only shifts sign every seven years. It will dally back into Aries for four months from November, but this will set on theme for the time ahead. Taurus is a sign which rules money, possessions, agriculture, all things material, practical and earthy. It hates change but Uranus is the planet of sudden upheaval and (hopefully) more enlightened attitudes. So needs must during this time that new values are aspired to and put into practice.

Mid-month as well Mars moves into Aquarius to stay till mid August which tends to be stubbornly argumentative, though adept at ploughing its own furrow.

Venus in social-butterfly Gemini will provide fun up to the 19th, then sink happily into self-protective, family-oriented Cancer thereafter,

In the final ten days the lighter-hearted Gemini Sun skips in to provide stimulating chats and much running around.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

6: Taurus Sun sextile Neptune in Pisces – kind, dreamy, evasive.

7: Mercury in Aries square Pluto – intense chats, negative, stubborn.

Venus in Gemini square Neptune – romantic, dreamy but not practical.

9: Taurus Sun opposition Jupiter in Scorpio – lazy, confident, promising more than can deliver, over hopeful.

11: Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn – over recent obstacles, forging ahead having learnt a few lessons.

12: Mercury square Mars – outspoken, edgy.

13: Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries – bright ideas, honest.

Mercury into Taurus till 29th – practical discussions, slow to decide but unbudgeable once decisions taken.

15: Uranus into Taurus till early November, then back for seven years from early March 2019 – changes in finances, values and attitudes to the earth.

16: Mars into Aquarius until mid August – can be contrary, obstinate, sometimes inspired.

Mars square Uranus – tends to make equipment break down, sudden surprises, over-reactions, explosive.

18: Mercury trine Saturn – sensible, down-to-earth

19: Venus into Cancer till mid June – snuggling up close to loved ones and family, emotionally sensitive and self-protective, can be moody.

Venus sextile Uranus – flirtatious, social fun.

21: Sun into Gemini for four weeks – thinking, talking and texting like mad. Multi-tasking though also scattered.

23: Mercury sextile Neptune – sympathetic, vague.

Mercury opposition Jupiter – enthusiastic, though over confident.

24: Sun trine Mars – high energy, pushing obstacles to one side.

25: Jupiter trine Neptune – idealistic, though not realistic.

April 2018

Topped and tailed by challenging influences with an irritable, accident-prone Mars Saturn at the start and a risky, trapped Mars Pluto at the finish, April will have its tense moments. Mars Saturn usually brings blocks and delays so it’ll be a drag in week one. The pro-active Aries Sun will be in fiery gear, keen to take the initiative, but it will be negotiating its way through a slalom course of a Pluto road-block on the 11th and a disruptive Uranus on the 18th.

Luckily Venus in earthy, indulgent Taurus will prove an antidote to the agitation; as will a successful, confident and lucky Jupiter sextile Pluto midmonth And Mercury goes direct from the 15th which will also help to smooth out a few wrinkles.

The final ten days sees the Sun slowing in pace as it joins Venus in steady, enduring and placid Taurus. Though the Mars Pluto conjunction on the 26th will require perseverance, persistence and determination with relationships likely to be fraught.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

1: Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries – in mental overdrive, chatty.

March 2018

The first few days will be swimming in a Neptunian haze with the Sun, Neptune, Mercury and Venus all in this self-protective, hyper-sensitive though visionary sign. Energy may be low but sympathy levels should be high. Daydreaming will be a pleasant diversion.

Then Mercury and Venus on the 6th zip into fiery Aries for a minor change of mood. Upfront, directly outspoken, adventurous and go-ahead, Aries often acts first and thinks second but is rarely boring and usually on the ball.

The Pisces Sun sails along until the 20th, pulled together by Pluto and then morale-boosted by Jupiter before mid-month, so there should be good news.

From the 17th Mars moves into Capricorn for a fractious few weeks till mid-May as it will bounce off the Sun, then Saturn, and Pluto. Often it casts its shadow before it, in terms of accidents and aggravations so there may be more disasters than usual.

In the final ten days the Aries Sun will set a faster pace as it promotes initiative, and will be keen to get new projects started. Though it will be stop-go as it squares Mars and Saturn before March closes and will require perseverance. Mercury going retrograde on the 23rd for three weeks also won’t help, as it brings the usual hitches and glitches especially in communication.

On the 31st Venus moves into indulgent Taurus to compensate for any delays.

Venus in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio – indulgent, frivolous, sociable.

February

The Aquarius Sun just off the wobble from the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) on the last day of January, heads for a Solar Eclipse (New Moon) on the 15th. Focus will be crucial since this one depends on challenging everyone to get their head and heart in alignment and devote themselves to a pet project or worthy cause. Getting priorities straight is crucial; and so is not being too ego-centred on selfish concerns. Over-confidence is a risk around the 10th though an inspired hunch a few days later will bring enlightenment.

Venus hops out of detached, flirtatious Aquarius on the 10th, gliding into seductive, sensitive Pisces for the rest of the month. Mars continues in adventurous, outspoken and crusading Sagittarius throughout, with only one blip from a marginally disappointing or low-energy square from Neptune after mid month.

In the final ten days the Sun and Mercury join Venus in Pisces, for a lyrical and dreamy few days. Effort will be needed to turn visions into a reality.
