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.

Venus trine Saturn in Aquarius – charming about practical matters, cool emotionally.

5: Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn – high-octane, positive thinking plus determination can produce solid results, though over-confidence can be a problem.

7: Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus – disruptive, can cause equipment breakdowns, a mood of no compromise and no interference allowed.

Mercury sextile Pluto – persuasive.

8: Mercury sextile Jupiter – positive chats, c=enthusiastic.

Full Moon in Libra – pulled in two directions

11: Mercury into Aries until 27th – speak first, think second, not devious, straight talking, assertive.

Mercury sextile Saturn – sensible, practical chats.

14: Sun Aries opposition Pluto – challenging, requires effort to overcome obstacles, power struggles

15: Sun opposition Jupiter – optimistic, over hopeful, expect results with no effort.

18: Mercury sextile Venus – sweet talking.

19: Mercury sextile Mars – assertive, straight speaking

Sun into Taurus for four weeks – earthy, practical, stubborn.

21: Sun square Saturn – downbeat, setbacks, delays, obstacles, need to be realistic.

23: New Moon in Taurus – new beginnings

25: Mercury square Pluto – deep-thinking, negative, stubborn

Pluto goes retrograde in Capricorn until early October – subtle shift, perhaps financial, business or political projects on hold.

26: Mercury square Jupiter – promise more than can deliver, over hopeful.

Sun conjunct Uranus – sudden change, surprises, jolts, not co-operative

27: Mercury into Taurus until May 12th – chat about practical matters, sensible, slow to decide.28: Mercury square Saturn – gloomy, looking for flaws.

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 until early July, and then moves in for a two year plus stay 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.

March

The dreamy, sensitive, emotionally self-protective Pisces Sun will be in a more drifting mood than usual as it joins hands with Neptune, its ruler on the 8th. An enthusiasm-lift will get life into gear thereafter towards mid month but it won’t be exactly at hyper-speed. Venus moving through indulgent, earthy Taurus from the 5th will produce a few pleasureable moments as well as an emotional surprise or two.

A quiescent Mars in Capricorn starts to wind up a head of steam after the middle of the month, first in an upbeat, possibly over-confident conjunction with Jupiter and then a do-or-die-determined conjunction with Pluto. The latter can be marginally risky so caution is advised. At the least it tends to produce trapped situations or control freaks running amok.

Saturn makes a major shift into Aquarius on the 22nd staying till early July and then returning late year for a two year stint through this airy, intellectual, scientific sign. The emotional mood may be steadier but will also be cooler. Mars joins Saturn in Aquarius from the 30th for a few weeks which will be argumentative and uncompromising.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

3: Venus in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn – romantically separated, emotionally critical, overly hard working

20: Sun into Aries for four weeks – pro-active, impulsive, fiery, speaks and acts first – thinks second.

February

A less fraught month astrologically-speaking with the airy Aquarius Sun until the 19th unaspected by any other planet. Communicative Mercury in Pisces until early March will be creative and kindly-intentioned though not always practical or easy to pin down. It goes retrograde from the 17th for three weeks which will bring the usual irksome delays.

Venus will zip into fiery, upfront Aries on the 7th to stay until early March adding a few firecrackers romantically and socially.

Most of the action happens after mid month with Mars moving into financially ambitious Capricorn staying until the end of March, so there’ll be a definite push for money and status. New plans will get under way courtesy of an active Uranus around the 21st and 22nd, with no interference being allowed from outside. The Pisces Sun for the final ten days will be more active than usual with Mars adding its impetus as well. Nothing too abrasive or disruptive, but lively.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

2: Venus in Pisces sextile Pluto – seductive, sociable, persuasive

3: Mercury into Pisces until March 4th – not always realistic, but sympathetic, imaginative and artistic.

Venus in Pisces sextile Saturn in Capricorn – cool, sophisticated, elegant, charming in a business-like way

17: Mercury retrograde in Pisces until March 11th (from March 4th in Aquarius) – communication hitches and glitches.

19: Sun into Pisces for four weeks – can be vague and indecisive, emotionally self-protective and overly sensitive, though also coolly ambitious and go-ahead.

20: Jupiter in Capricorn sextile Neptune – idealistic, hopeful, visionary though marginally unrealistic.

21: Mars trine Uranus in Taurus – go-ahead, firecracker energy which refuses to compromise, can be inventive.

22: Sun sextile Uranus – innovative, new doors open.

23: New Moon in Pisces – new beginnings

Venus square Jupiter – frivolous, indulgent sociable, superficial.

25: Sun sextile Mars – zippy, energetic, go-ahead.

January 2020

A power-packed and challenging month lies ahead with the heavyweight Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn coming within two days of a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer around mid-month. Saturn is concerned with limits and boundaries, can feel restrictive but has an important function in restoring order, promoting hard-work and self-discipline. Pluto oversees change and transformation though it has an unsavoury control-freak side which wants to dominate and it will attempt to block change that threatens to undercut its power. Saturn Pluto can be repressive though it also fosters grit, perseverance and the ability to endure.

The Capricorn Sun around as usual in January until the 20th brings the usual materialistic slant to life, promotes initiative and ambition and pushes to produce tangible achievements. Though even its determined spirit will labour slightly under Saturn and Pluto’s sombre influence.

Mars in Sagittarius from the 3rd will fire up discussions with a free and frank exchange of opinions and some adventurous plans being floated for a time when there is more elbow room for manoeuvre.

Venus in Aquarius till the 13th will bring moments of friendly sociability; and thereafter in sensitive Pisces will float along a separate track avoiding contact with unpleasantness and difficulties. Gradually the shift over to airy Aquarius after mid-month will lighten the mood with group activities favoured and an optimistic forward-looking mood. Uranus will cast aside any attempt to block free choice on the 23rd and if necessary will cause a minor disruption to ensure everyone can take an independent stance.

PLANETARY ASPECTS:

2: Mercury in Capricorn conjunct Jupiter – enthusiastic, confident communication, promise more than can deliver.

3: Mars into Sagittarius until February 16th – adventurous, impulsive, outspoken, fiery opinions.

7: Sun in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces – kind, dreamy, vague.

8: Mercury sextile Neptune – evasive, can’t focus, sympathetic.

10: Sun conjunct Mercury – in mental overdrive.

Lunar Eclipse, powerful Full Moon in Cancer – heightened anticipation, a need to balance life with the opposites held in equilibrium.

11: Uranus direct in Taurus – innovative practical and financial schemes make more progress.

12: Mercury conjunct Saturn – serious, gloomy chats.

Mercury conjunct Pluto – intense discussions, deep-thinking, negative, stubborn.

Saturn conjunct Pluto – slow-going, feels discouraging though persistence will pay off.

13: Sun conjunct Saturn and Pluto – more of the same, pushing boulders uphill.

Venus into Pisces until February 7th – romantic, emotionally sensitive and self-protective, reluctant to admit feels for fear of rejection.

15: Venus sextile Uranus – sociable, flirtatious.

16: Mercury into Aquarius until February 3rd – chatty, curious, keen to look backwards and forwards, friendly.

18: Mercury square Uranus – bright ideas, bolts from the blue, outspoken.

20: Sun into Aquarius for four weeks – chatty, curious, friendly, good for group activities, stubborn.

23: Sun square Uranus – sudden surprises, no compromise, not co-operative, need freedom.

Venus sextile Jupiter – sociable, affectionate, indulgent.

24: New Moon in Aquarius – need to get head and heart together.

25: mercury sextile Mars – lively discussions

27: Venus square Mars – romance blows hot and cold, passionate but not always sensitive to the other’s needs.

Venus conjunct Neptune – romantic, day-dreamy, unrealistic, disappointing in love.

28: Mars square Neptune – can bring glamour and publicity or go the other way and create panic about plans not working.

December

Two major pieces of astro-news this December. The first is Jupiter moving into Capricorn on the 2nd to stay for a year ahead. In the normal course of events Jupiter in the sign of money and business would be good news but that may be less obvious initially since restrictive Saturn and Pluto are already in Capricorn. Jupiter always adds a dollop of luck and enthusiasm which will be welcome though it may take a while to filter through.

The fiery, sporting energetic and always chatty Sagittarius Sun will bounce up proceedings until the 22nd with one minor dip of confusion around the 8th. Venus in sophisticated Capricorn until the 20th will be making the most of the festive indulgences and turning on the charm to impress the right people.

A lucky break or stroke of good fortune will boost morale mid month though there’ll be a need for perseverance thereafter to turn a positive turn of events into longer lasting benefits.

The second major astro-happening is the Solar Eclipse on the 26 in early Capricorn in a Saros Series which is highly emotional and associated with sudden changes and separations. It is conjunct Jupiter which will raise spirits but there may be, more than usual, an end of year sense of leaving behind what belongs to the past.

2: Jupiter into Capricorn till December 2020 – usually good for attracting money, certainly ambitious, promotes traditional values.
