Heavenly Headlines

August

The outgoing, sociable Leo Sun until the 23rd will be jolted and jangled by a Uranus square on the 1st and slightly overcast by a tough Mars Pluto square midmonth which will make the preceding days challenging. But in between times will cast rays of sunshine around. There will be a devil-may-care uptick on the 4th and Mercury will provide entertaining distractions as it moves into Leo as well after the 5th. The home-loving Venus in Cancer after the 7th will bring relaxing moments. So it’ll be up and down with livelier prospects after mid month. But it is at least eclipse-free so less on edge than June and July were.

Into the final week an earthy, practical Virgo Sun will have to wend its way round a Saturnine setback and some Venusian fun and games but will keep its mind firmly on duty and settling into a work routine.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

1: Mercury in Cancer opposition Pluto – intense chats, persuasive though overly dogmatic.

Sun in Leo square Uranus – expect the unexpected and be open to new opportunities. Not good for co-operation.

3: Full Moon in Aquarius – pulled in two directions.

Mercury opposition Saturn – serious, negative.

4: Mars in Aries square Jupiter – enthusiastic, impulsive.

5: Mercury into Leo until 20th – attention-seeking, good for holding an audience.

7: Venus into Cancer until September 6th – emotionally self-protective, home-loving, good taste, keen on entertaining.

10: Mercury in Leo square Uranus – outspoken, inspired, inventive.

13: Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn -blocked, requires considerable effort to make progress.

15: Uranus retrograde until mid January 2021 – innovative plans go on a go-slow.

16: Sun trine Mars – assertive, courageous, pro-active.

17: Mercury trine Mars – straight speaking, honest.

Sun conjunct Mercury in mental overdrive.

18: Venus sextile Uranus – flirtatious, sociable, fun.

19: New Moon in Leo – in focus.

20: Mercury into Virgo until September 5th – practical chats, thinking directed to constructive ends.

22:  Sun into Virgo for four weeks – adaptable, sensible, health conscious, hard-working.

24: Mars square Saturn in Capricorn – impatient, setbacks, delays, slightly accident prone.

25: Mercury trine Uranus – bright ideas, lively chats

Venus opposition Jupiter – frivolous, sociable, indulgent.

27: Venus trine Neptune – kind, sympathetic, dreamy.

OUTER PLANETS

Jupiter in Capricorn from December 2nd 2019 to December 2020. Capricorn is money-minded, ambitious, traditional, practical. In astrology it rules business and governmental systems. Can be creative.

Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till March 22 2020, and again and again July 2nd to December 17th – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence. Puts a toe into Aquarius in late March for three months, and moves in for two years plus from December onwards – it is serious thinking, helpful for science, steadier emotionally though cold.

Uranus: From March 2019 for seven years in Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature.

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.

July

A power and action-packed month begins with the third of the eclipses within weeks. Following on from early June’s Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse and the after mid-month Cancer Solar Eclipse, on July 5th there’s a Capricorn Lunar Eclipse (a powerful Full Moon) which aspects Uranus and Neptune. There will be a highly-strung mood, some anxiety and trepidation and a need for calm. Eclipses always bring a sense of anticipation and challenge and three in a row is one more than usual – so a fair amount of churning change. Except the challenge this time round, following the message of the June Solar Eclipse, is to face up to difficulties and restrictions and wait before taking any real action.

The Eclipsed Full Moon on the 5th coincides with Saturn retrograding for the final time into Capricorn where it will stay till the middle of December. This will instil self-discipline, a sense that only hard work will resolve problems with accompanying financial limitations or setbacks. Results will start to come through after the end of September when Saturn finally goes direct.

But for all the above the mood will be surprisingly upbeat with the super-confident Jupiter Pluto conjunction opposing the Sun in the middle of the month. Though admittedly it’s followed by a problematic Saturn opposition a few days’ later. So it may be a leap forward and then a few steps back.

The final week with the entertaining, outgoing and flashy Leo Sun in place should throw up amusing distractions.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

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

Sun sextile Uranus – lively, inventive, tensions easing.

Saturn Retrograde into Capricorn till mid-December, goes direct 30 September – having to rethink business and financial and practical plans.

5: Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) in Capricorn – pulled in two directions.

8: Mercury square Mars in Aries – argumentative, fast-thinking/talking.

12: Mercury goes direct in Cancer – communication delays cease.

Sun trine Neptune in Pisces – kind, dreamy, vague.

14: Sun opposition Jupiter in Capricorn – overly confident, want success without effort, over-estimate abilities.

15: Sun opposition Pluto – controlling, power-struggles, can bring transformation after considerable effort.

20: New Moon in Cancer – focused, head and heart together.

Sun opposition Saturn – discouraging, mistakes need faced and fixed, delays.

22: Sun into sociable Leo for four weeks – party-loving and attention-seeking.

Mercury sextile Uranus – bright ideas, lively chat.

27: Jupiter sextile Neptune – compassionate, charitable, not realistic, dreamy, idealistic.

Venus square Neptune – romantic fantasies, sympathetic but can lead to disappointment.

Mercury square Mars – argumentative

30: Mercury opposition Jupiter – promise more than can deliver, enthusiastic.

Mercury trine Neptune – mean well, but evasive.

June

Two Eclipses mark out June as a significant month of heightened awareness and not a few challenges. A light-hearted and chatty Gemini Sun and Venus will keep the mood upbeat most of the time but there will be challenges. Eclipses are not disasters but they do bring a hint that change will bring growth and revival ahead. Whereas trying to amble along as before will only lead to crises.

The Lunar Eclipse on the 5th, a powerful Full Moon, is in Sagittarius opposing the Sun, so there will be a pull in opposite directions, with a need to find a way of rising above a conflict to find a third way out of tensions. It will require balancing the needs of head and heart, no easy mater. And not just for the day but for a few months ahead.

There will be outspoken views expressed with Mars around and a few plans that don’t work out mid-month. So it’ll require determination to stay on track. Mercury going retrograde for thee weeks on the 18th in Cancer won’t help since it always slows communications and agreements.

Just as the Cancer Sun turns up it forms a Solar Eclipse (a powerful New Moon) on the 21st which is in a Saros cycle associated with restrictions, inhibitions, separations and illusions. Getting over confident or over enthusiastic is not advised since impulsive actions won’t work out. Patience will be hard to find but will be wise over coming months.

The family-oriented Cancer Sun continues on as per normal for four weeks, rattled a touch as Mars moves into assertive, argumentative Aries on the 28th to stay for several weeks. But the month will end on a high note with a super-successful Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. There may be a hint of ‘might makes right’ in the ether but on the whole it’ll bring a surge of positivity.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

3: Venus in Gemini square Mars in Pisces – passionate though not overly sensitive.

Sun conjunct Venus in Gemini – charming, romantic, affectionate, frivolous.

5: Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus – bright ideas, lively chat.

Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius – pulled in two directions.

6: Sun square Mars in Pisces – active, irritable, outspoken.

11: Sun square Neptune in Pisces – vague, dreamy, low energy, evasive, kind.

13: Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces – can feel like failure as plans don’t work out; or it attracts glamour and publicity.

18: Mercury retrograde in Cancer until July 12th – communication hitches and glitches.

Mars sextile Pluto in Capricorn – depth of understanding, determined.

20: Mars sextile Jupiter in Capricorn – lucky, adventurous, energetic.

Sun into Cancer for four weeks – emotional, self-protective, creative, ambitious, family focused.

21: Solar Eclipse in Cancer -a powerful New Moon – needs focus and the ability to face up to unfamiliar change.

23: Neptune retrograde in Pisces until late December – subtle shift, not really noticeable.

25: Venus in Gemini direct – more sociable and outgoing.

28: Mars into Aries until early January – an unusually long time in one sign with a long retrograde in the middle – pro-active, assertive, can be aggressive or overly impulsive.

Mars sextile Saturn – disciplined, hard-working, irritable.

30: Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn – positive thinking plus determination produces good luck. Super-confident, successful but also a touch too pushy.

Mercury sextile Uranus – inspired, chatty.

May

The stalwart earthy Taurus Sun will push on in steady steps until the 20th putting practicality before wild schemes, though with temptations to indulge looming large. Unimpeded by major aspects until it reaches a powerfully expansive and lucky set of trines to Pluto and Jupiter after mid-month, it may induce a little calm into a chaotic year.

Mars will stay in stubbornly contrary Aquarius until the 13th producing a few arguments. Then it moves into Pisces till late June bringing a mellower kind of assertiveness. Mars here can give talent in dancing so swaying to music will be a better way of exercising and soaking up surplus energy.

In the final days the Sun joins Mercury and Venus in Gemini for a lighter hearted mood with much chat, swapping ideas and staying in touch. The energy will be scattered with much multi-tasking and not always a clear sense of direction.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

1: Mercury conjunct Uranus in Taurus – bright ideas, innovative, outspoken, highly strung.

April

The major planetary aspects in play this year will get an outing in April, starting with the upbeat Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on the 5th. Under normal circumstances this is associated with high confidence and enthusiasm and the ability to produce successful results. But its expansive qualities can also inflate the negative, or prompt a tendency to assume that rules are meant for other people. Transgressions can backfire. That may be particularly evident towards mid month when the upfront, feisty Aries Sun opposes Pluto and Jupiter.

There’s also a volatile, disruptive Mars in Aquarius square Uranus on the 7th, following on from the Mars conjunct Saturn of March 31st – so it’ll be a rocky ride, marginally accident-prone, at the least bad tempered. Mars in Aquarius all month until mid May can be argumentative, contrary, stubborn. A hint of the same will come in the final ten days as the Taurus Sun is in a downbeat square to Saturn and an erratic and unpredictable conjunction with Uranus.

Venus in Gemini from the 3rd will attempt to sprinkle a little social fun around all month; though, being in Gemini, it may have to be restricted to communication over the airwaves than in actual gatherings.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

3: Venus into Gemini until early August, with a retrograde from mid May till late June – light hearted, flirtatious, fun-loving.

4: Mercury in Pisces conjunct Neptune – vague, dreamy, kind, evasive.
