Heavenly Headlines

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.

OUTER PLANETS

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: 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.

November

The Scorpio Sun will seek the shade, plotting and planning in corners, being secretive and emotionally intense. But it’ll have its work cut out keeping everything under wraps since Venus in Sagittarius from the 1st will be throwing open the curtains, allowing the sunshine in and letting all the secrets out into the open. Socially it’ll be adventurous, even if there will be more serious financial matters to resolve.

Mars will top and tail the month with some aggravation. In a fraught square to Pluto on the 5th it will make decisions and agreements harder to reach. And then again on the 24th having moved into Scorpio it will light a fuse in an opposition to Uranus. There will be upheavals and disruptions with hasty over-reactions likely. Happily mid month looks calmer and more upbeat.

The Sun shifts into lively, outspoken Sagittarius on the22nd for four weeks which will lighten the mood. And Venus moves into Capricorn for a chic, sophisticated, socially ambitious feel.

PLNETARY ASPECTS:

1: Venus into Sagittarius until 26th – wanting to be informed at the same time as entertained, varied and active social life.

October

Libra, the sign of the scales of justice and relationships comes to the forefront with both the Sun and Mars there for three weeks. Balance will be the aim but that doesn’t mean to say there won’t be wobbles from extreme to extreme, one opposite to the other, before it’s found. Saturn and Pluto will also impede progress with setbacks, delays and no-win discussions and the stop-start mood will run into next month.

Venus joining Mercury in intensely emotional Scorpio will make for intimate moments, seductive persuasion and even a hint of jealousy. Scorpio is also money-minded so discreet negotiations and determined discussions should provide some rewards along the way.

Into the final week the Sun also moves into Scorpio for a relentless push and redoubled determination. Though there are accident prone and aggravating influences around as well as a jolting surprise or two.

September

An exceptionally busy, chatty, high-energy month will speed along with five planets – Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars – in scattered, communicative and workaholic Virgo. Jupiter and Neptune will also be in evidence, pitching hopes up, creating illusions, delusions and some disappointments as over confidence proves not to be built on solid foundations. Whatever else happens it won’t be dull or slow moving. But it will be a time of highs and lows, peaks and troughs with an adventurous spirit around.

From mid-month there will be a gradual slide towards sociable, well-balanced Libra, headed by Mercury and Venus, both pouring oil on troubled waters and seeing all sides to every situation. The Sun joins in after the 23rd and Mars in early October. Libra is a sign of moderation, though often swings from extreme to extreme to find the middle way.

August 2019

A sunny, sociable Leo New Moon opens the month with a sparkle and Mercury goes direct ending a few weeks of irritating hitches and glitches. Then there’s an enthusiastic and lucky aspect to Jupiter a few days later. After July’s critical Eclipses and challenging aspects it should be calmer and quieter. The first ten days has three planets in flamboyant, entertaining Leo so duty and the chores may not get much of a look in. Your sense of humour will rescue any tense situations after the 11th and your charms will help as well.

Then gradually after mid-month there’s a drift towards earthy, practical, conscientious Virgo. First Mars which will turn perfectionist and nit-picky until early October. Then Venus in Virgo will be less sociable, more reserved and helpful. Finally for the final week the Virgo Sun will get you into a rhythm and routine where work and tasks are concerned. Looking after health and fitness will be vital since you’ll drain your stamina if you don’t replenish your batteries along the way.
