Moon enters Aries...

today at 2.25am in Kilmore.

What a difference a sign makes... moving from Pisces to Aries is like moving from one extreme to another.

Going from a dreamy, emotional and out of this world feeling to, in your face, full steam ahead!

Moon enters Pisces...

today at 5.12pm in Kilmore.

Squishy, soft and emotional is how I feel about Pisces! lol. This is a very sensitive time for most people.

Retrograde Mercury conjunct Mars...

in Capricorn... this starts early this morning and reaches a peak at about 5pm today - Kilmore time.

We all may need to go back to a fiery discussion or person in order to sort it, them, or ourselves out! Being in Capricorn there is likely to be a serious tone to discussions, but also fiery because of the Mars influence. Because Mercury is retrograde and the fiery nature of this combination it will be all too easy to get all heated up and not communicate clearly (Mercury retrograde).

I think we all may need to bite out tonges... hopefully not right off, but just enough to keep them under control (Capricorn)!!

This energy will be easing off tomorrow morning.

New Moon in Aquarius and Solar Eclipse...

today at 6.55pm in Kilmore...

This is sure to be a powerful time for everyone with everthing that is happening in the sky right now.

The New Moon happening now is especially important in terms of the current focus on Aquarius as a sign and suggests that new things and situations will now begin to take off, helping to release the energy of the eclipse that is happening at the same time, and also the Saturn/Uranus opposition (Uranus rules Aquarius).

The fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) are likely to feel this energy line up quite strongly in comparison to everyone else.

Moon enters Aquarius...

today at 5.56am in Kilmore.

This should be an interesting few days! As the Moon travels through this sign it will 'hit off' Jupiter, the Sun (and be part of the eclipse), Chiron and then Neptune. It will also oppose Saturn.

Venus Opposing Saturn...

Combined with the Capricorn Moon, this Venus/Saturn combination sets a serious tone for relationships and finances. It seems a turning point is likely for all of us, especiall in relation to something or someone that was around about 6 months ago when Venus and Saturn were conjunct.

Venus started to oppose Saturn on the 23rd, became exact on the 24th and leaves today.

Moon enters Capricorn...

on the 23rd at 5.18pm Kilmore time.

Time for things to get a bit more serious than they have been!

Mars Trine Saturn...

Yippee... a tiny bit of stability in the midst of this crazy Mercury Retrograde, Eclipse and Saturn/Uranus opposition period!

Mars represents how we use our energy/drive, and Saturn provides stability and perserverence, suggesting that we all have the ability to successfully achieve something important to us somewhere in our lives (depends on your birth chart).

This energy began yesterday and peaks today... and gradually weakens until it's effects will be finished tomorrow.

Mercury Confusion...

For some reason this period of Mercury Retrograde is REALLY creating havoc for me... especially since it turned around and went back into Capricorn. This is possibly because I am a Sun Cancer (the opposite sign of Capricorn), so I'm really noticing it.

If that's the reason then if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libran or Capricorn then this period of Mercury Retrograde is probably really causing some disruption in your life.

For example, I was talking with a client the other day and needed an accurate time (lol) for a question she was asking... she looked at the clock and said '7pm', then 'no, it's 7.42pm'. OK, then we organised a time to catch up over the phone to go over the work I was preparing for her so I said we could chat at 2pm the next day... well, I thought the next day was Saturday (it wasn't, it was Friday), so I had to ring her back and clarify the day.

I thought this little episode was over, except that she rang back within a few minutes to say that the time she had given me for her reading was wrong! lol... it WAS 6.42pm!!!

What a comedy of errors!!!

Sun Conjunct Jupiter...

This energy starts today and will reach a peak tomorrow and then gradually drift off the day after. The Sun acts as a focus for whatever it touches and Jupiter is all about growth and opportunity (as well as going too far!).

With these two planets joining forces we can expect that we will begin to see where our luck is going to come from over the coming year while Jupiter travels through Aquarius, and also what type of opportunities we should be looking for in our lives.

Venus Conjunct Uranus in Pisces...

Wow, what a combination! The planet of love, values, relationships and finances joining forces with the maverick Uranus (never know what to expect with that one).

I think we can all use this energy (it comes around about once a year) to review what, and who, we value... once we redefine these issues it becomes much easier to deal with any financial concerns that we may have.

This energy starts today and reaches a peak tomorrow and will then ease off and be finished by the day after then.

Retrograde Mercury returns to Capricorn...

today at 4.36pm... suggesting that we all need to return to a previous issue we thought we had sorted out a few weeks ago when Mercury was last in Capricorn (it left that sign on January 2).

This is our chance to sort the situation out properly or to understand it more fully.

Moon in Sagittiarus...

feeling a bit freer after the visit of the Moon through Scorpio! The Moon enters this sign today at 4.30am.

Sun conjunct Retrograde Mercury...

The Sun in astrology can sometimes act as a 'trigger' and also spotlights whatever it is involved in, suggesting that the Mercury retrograde energy we are all currently experiencing will become more prominent.

This energy will begin working today and will finish up tomorrow.

Mercury and Printers...

lol... I did mention in a previous post about Mercury Retrograde that I expected my printer to play up! I went to print yesterday and the first page had half of the colour missing from it, I tried printing it again in black ink - this copy had missing stripes of print!

Oh well... not long to go now before Mercury turns around again. I think I'll research my options for a new printer, but I won't be buying it until things are moving forwards again.

Sun enters Aquarius...

at 9.40am in Kilmore! A lot of people get a bit confused when they are born on the cusp of a sign... I personally don't use 'cusps' in terms of which sign a planet is in: it is either in one sign or the other.

For example, if you were born today at 9.39am in Kilmore, you would be a Capricorn... if you were born at 9.40am you would be an Aquarian: obviously time is very important in these cases!

Where you are born also has an impact on this scenario but I'll leave that explanation for another time!

Invest with the astrologers | The Australian

Here is an article I found while surfing the net... Julie McBeth is an astrological colleague who knows her financial stuff....

the link to the original article is:,25197,24860374-23634,00.html

Article from: The Australian

RELAX: Criterion is not about to ask celebrity shopper Paris Hilton for her investment advice, but the key to the market's fortunes could well lie in the stars -- as in the celestial variety.

Sceptical? Fair enough, but as the conventional financial experts were way off beam in 2008, we may as well air the astrological perspective.

The tidings are far from positive, according to star gazer (and former finance journalist) Julie McBeth. In fact they are downright horrifying. "Global share markets are not out of the woods yet," McBeth warns. "Early 2009 will see markets around the world slide again."

March 8 looms as a stinker because Venus (which rules money) starts to move backwards in the sky. The other celestial body to watch is Pluto, which was cruelly downgraded to a dwarf planet in 2007 but still steers the US Fed Reserve's astrological chart.

In February 2007, McBeth warned that as Pluto was moving into Capricorn, the Federal Reserve would face a crisis "that had not been seen or ever dealt with in its history".

On March 18, 2008, when Pluto reached a critical point in the Fed's chart, Bear Stearns collapsed and needed to be bailed out by JP Morgan.

"The problems for the Fed and the US have only just begun," McBeth says. "In 2009, dates to watch for similar problems for the Fed and the banking sector include January/February, late July to early August and around October 19.

"Astrologers see this all moving to a crescendo in 2010, when -- due to a line of planets not seen since the 1930s Depression -- the US will be in serious trouble. "The $US is likely to collapse, unemployment will reach double digits and the economy will be slowing to a halt."

The main culprit is the "hard aspects" between the outer planets -- Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto -- which will be at either 90-degree or 180-degree angles to each other. This pattern peaks in August 2010 and last happened during the 1930s.

"The same planetary alignment also occurred in 1873 when the New York stock market collapsed, closing for 10 days and triggering a severe nationwide economic depression," McBeth says.

"Unregulated speculative credit was the root cause then, as it appears to be now."

The good news: Australia will experience less pain because we are not as affected by this planetary combo.

Finally, various planetary alignments will cause global market volatility over March 7-8 and July 8-11, and in the first weeks of September and November and the second half of December. "If you think astrology is a lot of rubbish, mark these dates in your calendar and see what you think," challenges McBeth. OK, it's a deal.

Diamonds in the dust

LIKE a spluttering Beetle, investors have reached the 2009 finishing line, shedding an average 43 per cent of their savings (as measured by the All Ords) along the way.

The top 200 stocks provided little more sanctuary, tumbling by 41.2 per cent. Both indices have done notably worse than the Dow Jones industrial average (down 36 per cent), which seems unfair as the US has been the root of most of the financial woes.

But a sparse handful of stocks withstood the carnage and posted gains. Across the ASX200 index, 13 stocks ended in positive territory but only six were materially ahead.

The winners (on an index weighted basis) were Origin Energy (ORG, up 84 per cent), Queensland Gas (QGC, 75 per cent), AGL Energy (AGK, 14 per cent), Karoon Gas (KAR, 11 per cent) and Iluka Resources (ILU, 8 per cent).

On an absolute basis, coal producer Linc Energy (LNC) led with a 160 per cent gain, thanks to the $1.5 billion sale of its Queensland coal assets to Xinwen Mining.

Without the ongoing charms of gas -- especially the coal seam variety -- there would have been no gainers apart from Iluka, the recovering mineral sands play.

As for the living dead, they are household names such as Babcock & Brown (BNB, down 99.45 per cent), Allco (AFG, down 98 per cent and in receivership), Babcock & Brown Power (BBP, down 96.5 per cent) and Valad Property (VPG, down 96 per cent). The last time Criterion saw such delinquents, they were vandalising phone boxes.

The story across the greater All Ords is no more salutary: 35 stocks rose and 542 fell, with only ten of the 35 managing significant gains. Once again, coal seam gas players led the charge with Sunshine Gas up 207percent (the result of being taken over by Queensland Gas), and Eastern Star Gas up 104 per cent on takeover speculation.

The other noteworthy gainers were Portman Mining (PMM, 102 per cent), taken over by Cleveland Cliffs; New Hope Coal (NHC, 47 per cent) and Midwest Corp (MIS, 33 per cent).

So for those who retained faith in coal seam gas while managing to luck on to the isolated coal and iron ore winners, congratulations.

For the rest of us, there is always next year which cannot get any worse. Surely?

Moon enters Scorpio...

today at 5.20pm!

Pretty intense feelings and atmosphere... especially in comparison to the previous Moon position of Libra!

Transiting Rx Mercury Conjunct Transiting Jupiter in Aquarius...

Exact on Sunday in Kilmore.. phew... what a mouthful!

Since Mercury is going back to Jupiter, I would expect that all of us will be backtracking (Mercury Rx), to an opportunity (Jupiter) we missed out on recently. Depending on your own chart, this could be experienced in many different ways.

So, it's not all bad having Mercury Retrograde, just s-l-o-w! This energy combination gives us all the chance to go back to something good we thought we missed out on!

Moon enters Libra...

... today at 9.30am!

Hopefully we'll all have fabulous social skills and be really smooooooth!

Maybe not, with the square to Pluto, then a square to Mars, AND the first quarter Moon stage being reached suggesting we are all reaching a mini cross-road somewhere in our lives.

Thoughts on Mercury Retrogade....

Being the school holidays here in Victoria, I took the kids out for the day hoping my car would behave (it did). While the older two were with friends watching a movie, I took my toddler off to change her nappy: while in the change room a couple came in with their two children.

The atmosphere around them was extremely sad, and I didn't hear any of them (including the infant or toddler) make a sound. I felt as though they must have had some terrible news or tragedy in their lives and felt like saying something like... 'don't worry, Mercury is Retrograde, things aren't as bad as they seem'... however, I thought it best to keep my mouth shut. Perhaps the news they heard had taken them back to a situation they thought they had left behind such as the return of a terminal illness or something like that.

Whatever was going on, my heart went out to them.

Moon enters Virgo on 14 Jan at 5.32am

Mmmm... makes me think of FOOD! Or maybe I need to pay attention to my diet and the details of my everyday life...

Mercury, the Trickster, playing games!

Well, so much for trying to avoid Mercury Retrograde! A day after I posted the blog about it, I noticed that I had made a mistake about when Mercury was turning direct again... thank goodness for EDIT!

Now, my car is playing up (usually it's my printer that mucks up when Mercury is retrograde - oops, I hope I haven't just jinxed myself!)... Mercury rules short trips so I'm expecting some minor delays as my car makes up it's mind whether or not to co-operate with my plans over the next few weeks!

Mercury goes Retrograde...

on January 12 at 3.44am Kilmore time at 7 degrees of Aquarius: it will stay this way until February 1.

I'm posting this a bit early just in case something stuffs up with Mercury being retrograde!

If you have any interesting examples of Mercury Retrograde working (or not!) in your life I'd love to hear about them.

For this visit, I think that Aquarians, Leos, Taureans and Scorpio people will feel this backward motion more than the rest of us.
