Yesterday Pluto in Capricorn stationed retrograde and had already spent roughly a month and a half at 9°. When the Outer Planets – Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – slow to station either retrograde or direct, they end up sitting in one place for anywhere from six weeks to three months. This can feel like someone’s drilling a hole in your psyche . . . sloooowly and painfully.
Now the inner planets spend far less time on one degree ranging from a week for Mercury to two weeks for Venus and Mars. Jupiter, [...]
In the days leading up to this Full Moon in Libra, I’ve had numerous reminders of classic Libra behaviors in regards to their partners. We tend to drop whatever we’re doing in response to our partner’s needs/requests/demands. Being married to a very Aries Aries (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Ascendant in Aries) this is the time of year he tends to take up more than his share of the oxygen in the room . . . especially now Uranus is in Aries and conjoining his Sun.
Aries is a natural prioritizer and my husband [...]
Ordinarily the Full Moon at 17° 23′ Libra on 6 April 2012, 12:20 PM PDT, favors sitting down to talk over relationship issues with your partner but not this one. Unfortunately lovely Venus in Gemini squares an uncomfortable Mars in Virgo and both are involved in a T-Square with elusive Neptune. Between uncertain tempers, jealousy and a good possibility that the facts will be in short supply, resolving differences is NOT going to be easy.
Libra’s ruler, Venus, leaves easy going Taurus for Gemini on 3 April and is on her way [...]
What’s not to like about this New Moon at 02° 22′ Aries, March 22, 2012 07:37 AM PDT? It signals the true beginning of the astrological New Year and conjoins an extremely energizing Uranus in Aries. However, if you go dashing off full speed ahead you could end falling flat on your face even with the empowering Grand Trine in earth.
The driving force of the Aries stellium (Sun, Moon, Mercury and Uranus) yearns for total freedom and it isn’t going to get it – too many obstacles and blockages to get around. [...]
If you have planets or Angles in early cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), you will probably be driven by Mercury stationing and essentially conjunct Uranus in Aries the entire week. I’m sure this will cause plenty of restless activity and sudden shifts in direction but I’m also doubtful how much will have been accomplished by the time the dust settles. If you can, grab the best of the ideas flashing by and make notes to go back over later.
For those with earth sign (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) dominated charts, a whole [...]
