Heavenly Headlines

September

The hard-working Virgo Sun is in good form, joined by Mercury on the 6th, and boosted by lucky Jupiter and influential/persuasive Pluto as they move through the first three weeks. Definitely a time to get a grip and get cracking, leaving no detail unattended and no stone unturned. Neptune will cause a minor slump on the 7th but that’s a passing moment. The 12th could bring good news or a triumph.

Venus in seductive and emotionally intense Scorpio from the 9th will add a hint of passion.

Although Mars returning to Aquarius on the 11th till mid November will cause a few waves with its rebellious, no-compromise and contrarian stance. And causing more than a few arguments and disruption as it squares Uranus on the 18th.

The final week sees a shift into fair-minded Libra which will be more sociable, diplomatic and balanced. There’ll be a few practical problems to untangle with Saturn around but an equal amount of high-octane energy from Mars so the month should end on a high.

August 2018

A firecracker start to the month arrives courtesy of a disruptive, overly excitable Mars Uranus square on the 2nd. No one will want to compromise so some differences of opinion may flare up. Then the entertaining, flamboyant and attention-demanding Leo Sun will be in exuberant form as it connects with expansive Jupiter thereafter before heading for the Solar Eclipse on the 11th. This is the third eclipse in the space of a month, one more than usual, so it will be a time of edgy anticipation.

Venus in sociable, fair-minded Libra from the 6th will be doing its best to pour oil on troubled waters and maintain calm, as well as throwing elegant parties.

Mars will reverse out of argumentative Aquarius on the 13th, into ambitious, practical Capricorn for a month bringing more constructive action and fewer words.

Mercury in colourful Leo will go direct on the 19th for an end to irksome delays and communication glitches.

Then the Sun proceeds into hard-working, conscientious Virgo in the final week with common-sensical and innovative aspects to Uranus and Saturn.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

2: Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus – noisy, disruptive, rebellious.

July 2018

An Eclipse month always means a heightened sense of anticipation. The emotionally self-protective Cancer Sun until the 22nd starts in enthusiastic and upbeat mood with a Jupiter trine spreading around cheer especially over home and family matters. Then tenses up with Pluto in opposition before the Solar Eclipse on the 13th, an especially powerful New Moon. This is a chance and a challenge to develop, to shake off old habit patterns and expand one area of life. Letting go is never easy under Cancer’s umbrella but living with feet stuck in the past won’t work.  Venus moves out of showy, extravagant Leo on the 10th into understated, keen-to-be-of-service Virgo for a few weeks.

Mars continues its contrary, ornery way in Aquarius with a rumble early on and makes its presence felt more obviously in the final days. By that time the Sun has moved into flamboyant, sociable Leo hits a square to rebellious Uranus and then makes an argumentative opposition to Mars on the day of the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, a powerful Full Moon. So it won’t be a peaceful finish to July with a few outbursts and disruptions. In the middle of which the Lunar Eclipse demands balance, finding a way of giving due attention to both head and heart, paying attention to detail keeping the big picture in mind, finding time for friends as well as loved ones.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

5: Sun in Cancer trine Jupiter in Scorpio – lucky, lazy, confident.

Mercury in Leo opposition Mars in Aquarius – definite opinions delivered theatrically and assertively.

8: Sun trine Neptune in Pisces – dreamy, kind, vague, evasive.

9: Mercury square Jupiter – confident, promise more than can deliver, carless of detail.

10: Venus into Virgo until August 7th -easier to be helpful than spontaneously outgoing, enjoys chores.

Jupiter direct in Scorpio – cash plans move into more go=-ahead phase, as do intimate relationships.

12: Venus trine Uranus in Taurus – flirtatious, sociable

14: Venus trine Saturn in Capricorn – cool, sophisticated, charming in a business-like way.

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.

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.
