Mercury square Mars – Thoughts, Feeling, Action

Mercury likes to deal with facts, data and information, which emotions and feelings, governed by water, are the antithesis of.
Mars is at home in Aries. It’s strong, powerful and willful. It likes to do what it wants and cares very little for the sensitivities of the crab.
The superior square from Mars further brutalises cuddly and sensitive Mercury in Cancer.

Full Moon in Scorpio – Mars in Cancer

The sign of Scorpio is deep, private and tends to not reveal much. Full Moon’s can generate drama and intensity that bring illumination. You may discover that no matter how hard you try to contain something, this weekend may bring emotions to a tipping point.

Mars and The Moon – A Chapter Closes, Another Opens

The next time the Moon and Mars conjoin in Aquarius on November 16, they won’t get to make an exact conjunction before Mars slips into watery Pisces. There will be other notable changes in the astro weather then, that suggests that last night’s celestial theatre was truly indicative of the changing of the guard.

Full Moon in Aries

Fresh from the Autumn/Spring equinox, this lunation emphasises what my first astrology teacher described as the ‘me vs. we’ dynamic. For anyone who has the polarity of Aries/Libra as a feature of their chart, or has the Sun, Moon or ascendant in those signs, finding the balance between the needs of relationship (Libra) and the needs of the individual (Aries) can often be a constant battle.

Full Moon in Cancer – Passionate Compassion

Sensitive emotions may rise and fall as soulful Neptune triggers this lunation. Logic and reason may be overcome by intuition or your gut instinct. The nebulous nature of Neptune prefers to err on the side of fantasy and imagination. If things don’t make much sense under the Full Moon, accept that and allow your feelings to guide you.

Astro-Weather April 17 + 23

Taurus also likes its creature comforts. This is an ideal time to actually enjoy and appreciate what you have around you. Bring out those things that are your ‘special occasion’ items. It may be an expensive perfume, the fancy dinner plates or the outfit you’ve never worn.

Happy Equinox and Astro New Year!

Sun brings the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere as well as the beginning of the astrological New Year with the ingress of the Sun in Pisces.

After a month long sojourn in the murky depths of the ocean, the Sun will rise, jubilant in the fire and glory in its sign of exaltation. Signalling the beginning of the tropical zodiac, the Sun in Aries offers a fresh start if the promises or resolutions of the New Year flagged or failed.

Mars In Aquarius

Mars has had a tricky time of it this year. A long and arduous retrograde phase during the first 9 months then finally, September 28 he moved into Capricorn, the first sign change outside of his backward transit all year.

Mars Retrograde – Forged In Fire

For the best part of 5 months, Mars will be visiting the same area of your life where Saturn also occupies until late next year. The area where you may be experiencing the struggle to find focus or the ability to move at the pace you’d prefer, like the half man half beast that the sign of Sagittarius represents ,Mars will swoop along and provide the inferno that will be a test of both courage and faith alike.
