Dangerous Job Being an Astrologer!

I was browsing through the web just now and found this link. It's about a Sri Lankan astrologer who was arrested after correctly predicting which political party would win an election (even though they were not a favourite).

My life would make a great: I'm not sure?!

I think my life so far has been a combination of comedy and drama.

Mercury Square Saturn...

today in Kilmore at 6.32pm: Mercury at 16 degrees and 16 minutes of Gemini - Saturn at 16 degrees and 16 minutes of Virgo.

Mercury is the planet associated with communication, data, information, short trips, movement (physical or mental), messages and basically connecting with the world around us. Saturn is about boundaries and hard work and the connection of these two planets suggest through the square aspects suggests tension because a change in approach or attitude is needed in the areas represented by the planets and signs involved.

Mercury in Gemini is very comfortable in this sign so suggests our thinking will be clear and information generally correct: this is important because it means that the challenges we face during this time will be able to be deal with in a clear minded way. Using logic will be helpful during this time.

New Moon...

today in Kilmore at 5.35am at 1 degree and 30 minutes of Cancer.

Wow... what an intense time! As you can see, this New Moon period promises the opportunity to transform ourself through other people with the opposition to Pluto...

The out-of-sign square to Uranus suggests a little instability, but not as severe like it would be if Uranus was in Aries or the opposition axis in Gemini/Sagittarius.

Sorry for posting late... I've got an exceptionally heavy workload right now!

Sun Opposing Retrograde Pluto...

today in Kilmore at 5.42pm: Sun at 1 degree and 59 minutes of Cancer, Retrograde Pluto at 1 degree and 59 minutes of Capricorn.

Wow... what an entrance! This is the first aspect the Sun is making as it enters Cancer and suggests an intensely emotional focus and turning point involving the areas of life and people represented by Cancer, the Sun, Pluto and Scorpio in your birth chart. The opposition suggests the involvement of another person that is likely to present the opportunity for you to gain a deeper understanding of them and the relevenat situations in your life... oppositions also herald a turning point with these people and situations. If you look back to when the Sun and Pluto were conjunct in late December 2008, there may be situations that were important then, that are part of the picture now.

Mars Trine Saturn...

today in Kilmore at 12.44am: Mars at 16 degrees and 2 minutes of Taurus, Saturn at 16 degrees and 2 minutes of Virgo.

Mars and Saturn don't usually work well together because of their differing natures, however, the trine is a great way for the energy of Mars to connect with the Saturn energy. Mars is about passion, drive, ego and energy - Saturn is about control, being methodical, precise and adds structure/boundaries. Combining the two through this trine (especially in earth signs), suggests that we all have the chance to build something in our lives succesfully... it's as though Saturn will be given a positive nudge (forget about a shove - Saturn isn't that quick! - anyway Mars is moving through Taurus - a plodding along kind of sign!), that will help us all to achieve solid progress.

As usual look to your own chart to see which areas of life or people are represented by these energies.

Venus Trine Saturn...

today in Kilmore at 4.30pm: Venus at 16 degrees and 1 minute of Taurus, Saturn at 16 degrees and 1 minutes of Virgo.

Lovely Venus in Taurus is all about having a good time and enjoying our loved ones. She is very comfortable in this sign so suggests that whatever (and whoever) is represented by her in our charts will be in better form than usual - look to which houses are ruled by Taurus and Libra for clues!

The trine to Saturn adds to this lovely energy through helping to remove the barriers between Venus and Saturn in working together successfully. Look to which houses rules by Capricorn and Aquarius (if you use traditional rulerships) to see what/who will be linking in with the Venusian themes in your life. Remember to also look at where these planets are transiting as well!

Sun enters Cancer...

today in Kilmore at 3.46pm.

The solstice is mentioned on many websites so I won't go into all the various meanings and interpretations from this angle. The move of the Sun into Cancer suggests that the focus for many people will be on the qualities associated with this sign (nurturing, family, emotions, roots, belonging, etc). This is likely to be quite a dymanic and intense entry for the Sun into this sign, because of the contact with Pluto being made shortly after the ingress... more on this in another entry!

Look to see which house Cancer rules in order to see which themes are going to be activated by the illuminating power of the Sun over the next few weeks... there are a series of powerful eclipses coming up that will be especially significant during this time as well!

Venus Conjunct Mars....

in Kilmore at 11.09pm at 15 degrees and 16 minutes of Taurus.

Woman meets man... love meets desire... yin joins yang... mmmmm, wherever this conjunction is happening for you in your chart it seems that there is the opportunity to join something together, or to make a fresh start that is positive. This is a lovely energy to have in the skies, especially with some of the harsher ones that have been around lately.

Venus and Mars have been travelling together for some time now and will continue for another few weeks... lucky us! The last conjunction happened in the last degree of Pisces.

Sun Trine Retrograde Jupiter...

today in Kilmore at 12.29pm - Sun at 27 degrees of Gemini; Retrograde Jupiter at 27 degrees of Aquarius.

Like the trine to Neptune, the trine to Retrograde Jupiter highlights and eases any blockages to the themes represented by Jupiter in your birth chart (look to where this planet is transiting, and which houses it rules). The Sun helps whatever it touches to shine and stand out, and the trine contact suggests that it will give a positive boost to Jupiter right now. Yeehaaa!!!

Sun Square Uranus...

today in Kilmore at 12.56am (just after midnight): Sun at 26 degrees and 33 minutes of Gemini/Uranus at 26 degrees and 33 minutes of Pisces.

I picked the picture of The Tower in the tarot because it reminds me of the energy of the Sun/Uranus combination. Uranus is about radical change in our lives and in modern astrology rules electricity (see the thunderbolt hitting the Tower?)! It also seems to hit hard when we resist the changes that are needed in our lives - for example I have Taurus Rising, so I tend to suffer from resistance to change... sometimes I need a lightening bolt to throw me out of ruts that aren't doing me any favours - even if I consciously know it! Fixed signs tend to resist change, but Taurus in particular because it is also an earth sign.

Anyway, the Sun acts as a trigger to longer term energies like Uranus that tends to hang around for a long time in one degree within the sign it is travelling in. The square aspect itself is very energetic and suggests a crisis and turning point being reached with the energies represented by the planets and houses involved.

So... this is an opportunity for us all to make the changes that are needed where Uranus is symbolised in our lives... possibly through the symbolism of the Sun.

Sun Trine Retrograde Neptune...

today in Kilmore at 8.45pm: Sun at 26 degrees and 23 minutes of Gemini; Retrograde Neptune at 26 degrees and 23 minutes of Aquarius.

The Sun connecting with Neptune, who has just very recently turned retrograde suggests that the people and situations represented by Neptune in our charts/lives will be accented. I think this connection will be helpful in identifying the Neptune themes in our lives that we need to revise (because of the retrograde direction of Neptune).

The Sun illuminates whatever it touches, and the trine aspect helps to release any blockages that have been preventing movement, so we can all expect the release of anything that has blocking our Neptune energy (creativity, spirituality, emotions, etc).

Jupiter goes Retrograde...

today in Kilmore at 5.50pm at 27 degrees and 1 minute of Aquarius.

Yeehaaaaaa! The picture on the left is what I imagine Jupiter trying to go backwards would look like - a bit messy: the feeling I get is that it is a bit wierd for anything or anyone represented by this planet to be going backwards in any shape or form.

However, that's not to say that it isn't necessary sometimes. Jupiter make the apparent move backwards through the sky and, at the same time, through the various places in our birthcharts suggest we have the opportunity to go over some of our big ideas/plans and to check to see whether they are realistic or not. Another way this symbolism could work out is that a person or opportunity represented by this planet may come back to us. So, if there was something you think you missed out on over the past few months, the period until around October 17 when Jupiter goes forward again, could see a second chance for us all.

As usual, you can look to where Jupiter is travelling through your birth chart to get an idea of what type of opportunities you should look out for, and what sort of people. Also look to see which house cusps have Sagittarius and Pisces on them for clues!

Mercury enters Gemini...

today in Kilmore at 12.47pm.

Mercury, the planet of communication, the messenger, short trips and information moving into Gemini is great! Mercury loves being in Gemini so this bodes well for all the themes mentioned and also the houses ruled by Mercury in your birth chart (Gemini and Virgo). I would think that the matters and people represented by relevant houses should move along quite nicely for us all while Mercury is travelling through this sign.

For example, I have Gemini on my 2nd House cusp, so am expecting my finances to move ahead more smoothly than usual. Virgo is on my 4th and 5th House cusp so domestic matters and issues around my children should also go well.

Mercury Square Jupiter...

today in Kilmore at 1.34pm - Mercury at 26 degrees and 59 minutes of Taurus and Jupiter at 26 degrees and 59 minutes of Aquarius.

This is the third time that Mercury will be hitting on the Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction so I immediately think, 'third time lucky'! There is something that needs to be challenged and changed (square) in relation to the themes represented by these energies that we are all being a bit stuck (Taurus/Aquarius) on!

The last times that Mercury squared this conjunction were towards the end of April and again during mid-May: think back to those times to get an idea of where we may finally get the message!

Have a look at my post on Retrograde Mercury Squaring Jupiter here for some ideas!

Mercury Square Retrograde Neptune...

today in Kilmore at 7.53am (Mercury at 26 degrees and 26 minutes of Taurus/Retrograde Neptune at 26 degrees and 26 minutes of Aquarius).

Ooohhh... running a bit behind on my posts! Look to my previous post on this aspect for an idea of what to expect!

This is the last of three aspects that Mercury is making to Neptune, giving me the impression that although having the potential for confusion, or even deception, that this square will give us all the final push to sort through confusion situations or people in our lives.

Venus Trine Retrograde Pluto...

today in Kilmore at 5.23am (Venus at 2 degrees and 21 minutes of Taurus/Rx Pluto at 2 degrees and 21 minutes of Capricorn).

Lovely Venus and passionate Pluto seem to be running towards each other (Pluto is Retrograde)... joining together with the Trine energy suggests that previous barriers to the Venus and Pluto symbolic areas of our lives will be temporarily removed. Symbolically this gives me the feeling that when things start happening, they will happen reasonably quickly - probably in a tangible way because this trine is happening in earth signs.

For example, I have Venus travelling through my 12th House ruling my Ascendant (this represents me), trining transiting Pluto in my 8th ruling my Scorpio 7th House (representing my husband), perhaps we'll finally get some quality time to catch up with each other today!

Full Moon in Sagittarius...

today in Kilmore at 4.12am (at 17 degrees and 7 minutes of Sagittarius).

Wow, the only aspect involving the Full Moon is from Saturn in Virgo squaring both the Sun and Moon! This forms a T-Square that suggests balance will be reached through hard work, adjusting and paying attention to detail. Luckily, this T-Square is in mutable signs, giving more flexibility than if it were in fixed signs.

Hopefully this configuration will give us all the motivation to successfully reach a balance in the areas highlighted by this Full Moon.

Venus enters Taurus...

today in Kilmore at 7.07pm

This is a gorgeous placement for Venus... it's like she's at home in this sign. The movement of Venus from Aries into Taurus bodes particularly well for you if you have planets or points in your chart ruled by Venus (Taurus and Libra). You may almost feel as if a switch goes off (or should I say on!) as it shifts signs that the areas of life and people represented by Taurus and Libra in your chart start to cooperate and work more smoothly.

For example, I have Taurus Rising, and Libra on my 6th House cusp. I have been feeling very sluggish lately as the ruler of my Rising Sign travels through my natal 12th House in Aries. Even though it is still travelling through that House, at least now it is in the same sign as my Rising Sign, making some sort of connection with it.

Because I have been feeling a bit 'slow', this obviously has an impact on how I work (6th House). My health has also been an issue so this is now starting to improve.

Mars Trine Retrograde Pluto...

today in Kilmore at 2.37pm (Mars at 2 degrees of Taurus/Retrograde Pluto at 2 degrees of Capricorn).

The trine aspect is generally one that removes blockages and barriers to achieving whatever areas of our lives that are represented by the planets and houses involved. Since Mars is the one doing the aspecting to the retrograde Pluto, I feel that the themes shown by Pluto are the ones that will be helped along by the triggering action of the energetic Mars.

Mars in travelling through stable Taurus at the moment and will be there until July 12/13 - depending on where you live. This suggests that what we are all working towards and putting out energy into is likely to have a solid, tangible feel to it. Pluto is in Capricorn and suggest also that we are rebuilding something in our lives. This trine between the two planets suggests that we have the chance to make progress now.

Mars enters Taurus...

today in Kilmore at 7.18am.

Giddyup horsey! (Probably more along the lines of move your bloomin' arse actually!) Anyway, Mars moving into Taurus brings a more mellow approach to self-assertion and energy in general (compared to the boisterous Aries anyway).

If you're a Bull then get ready for life to move into warp speed... especially after the recent movements of Mercury from retrograde to direct in your sign. Wherever and whatever is touched by this move of Mars into Taurus in your birth chart, get ready for those aspects of your life to be energised and expect a lot of activity there.
