APRIL ENERGIES

 

 

April begins with the Sun in the Cardinal Fire sign of ARIES, the symbol on the left, and then it moves into the Fixed Earth sign of TAURUS, the symbol on the right, on April 20th.

Mercury goes Direct on April 15th!

Mercury is going direct in a couple of weeks, on April 15th at 4 degrees of Aries.  Just before the next New Moon.  Sigh of relief for all you people who are not too fond of this time, which can cause problems for most of us.  You might like to mark you calendar, in case you are making any significant purchases, or travel arrangements etc.,  Best to just be aware of it, and not let it take over your life, lol.

Other planetary activity this month.

AriesRam

NEW MOON  in Cardinal Fire sign of ARIES on APRIL 16th at 1.57 am BST @ 26 degrees.  I will be writing about this nearer to the time.  It will be an interesting New Moon as the planet URANUS will have a strong impact, as it will be conjunct(beside) both the sun and moon.  This will provide a powerful opportunity for setting intentions for change and awakening, and beginning something unique and unusual.  

Venus is in Earthy Taurus until 25th when it then moves into Airy Gemini

Mars is in Earthy Capricorn, and then moves from 8 degrees to 23 degrees of Capricorn throughout the month. Mars is close to Saturn in Capricorn for the first half of April, so a great time for focused energy, although you may also feel like you are driving with your foot on the brakes at times, as Saturn can slow Mars down!

Jupiter is still retrograde in Watery Scorpio, and starts at 22 degrees and moves to 19 degrees by end of the month.

Saturn is going RETROGRADE in Earthy Capricorn at 9 degrees on April 18th, and will go Direct again on September 6th at 2 degrees.

Uranus is going from 27 degrees of Fiery Aries to 29 degrees of Aries and moving into Earthy Taurus on May 16th.  Uranus spends approx 7 years in each sign, so this will be a major shift!  Moving from FIRE to EARTH energy. There will be a separate post about URANUS moving into Taurus.

Neptune will be 14 degrees of Watery Pisces going to 15 by end of the month.

Pluto will be at 21 degrees of Earthy Capricorn and going RETROGRADE on April 22nd.

Chiron will be at 29 degrees of the Mutable, Water sign of Pisces, and will be moving into the Cardinal, Fire sign of Aries on 17th April, where it will stay for a number of years. This is another major shift, as the Wounded Healer ‘Chiron’ shifts into the Fiery Warrior energy of Aries.  The symbol for Chiron, pictured below, shows the image of a key, and the placement of Chiron in your chart can symbolize your deepest wound, and also how you can heal.  ‘The Key to your healing.’

chiron-and-key

The outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are slow moving and so they can be in retrograde periods for a while and lots of people are born with these outer planets in retrograde.  This can indicate that the energies of these outer planets can tend to be expressed more inwardly.  All these outer planets are spending quite a bit of time in retrograde motion throughout this year.

The next FULL MOON is on APRIL 30th at 1.58 am BST at 9 degrees of Scorpio.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth.

 

NEW MOON IN VIRGO

The NEW MOON in the mutable EARTH sign of VIRGO falls on September 17th 2020 at 12 midday BST at 25 degrees.

Virgo is a mutable Earth sign, and is ruled by the planet MERCURY(as is Gemini). This brings a more airy quality to this earth sign. Virgo is efficient, organised, detail oriented, and also a sign associated with the sacred timings and seasonal changes. A lot of Virgo people or people with strong Virgo energy in their chart have a strong connection with mother Earth and are finely tuned to the changes that occur throughout the year.

At the time of this NEW MOON, the planet Saturn, which is in Capricorn, is making a lovely easy aspect(trine) to the Sun and Moon. This brings a huge opportunity to really focus energy on getting the work done. Pluto is also close to Saturn and is also involved in this trine energy, which helps when big changes are in the air. Sit down and make a plan of what you want to begin on this new moon. With all the earthy energy, there may be something that you want to manifest physically in your life. Think about it, journal your thoughts to see what comes up, especially if you don’t have anything specific that you are currently working on.

Venus in Leo and Mars in Aries bring some fire to the mix, which will help to activate your plans during this time.

Where is 25 degrees of Virgo in your chart, check it out and see which house(area of activity) is the focus of this new moon energy.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth. x

JUPITER GOES DIRECT

JUPITER, the big planet, ruling expansion, luck, travel, knowledge, opportunities, and all things larger than life, went retrograde in May 2020, and will go DIRECT on September 12/13th at 17 degrees of CAPRICORN.

Opportunities may begin to accelerate. You may feel that your foot was on the brakes this past few months, and although you were trying to move forward with things, they were taking longer than usual to happen. Check if you have any planets or angles at 17 Capricorn onwards, as Jupiter is moving along now, and will enter the air sign of AQUARIUS on December 20th, and will be joining SATURN there, which will be a very interesting time.

Jupiter will be close to both Saturn and Pluto in the late degrees of Capricorn towards the end of this year, so it would be a good idea to have a look at your own chart to see where these planets currently are transiting. There could be big opportunities in these areas, especially if there are planets being aspected also.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth x

MARS GOES RETROGRADE

MARS, the planet of Action, is currently in the Fire sign of Aries, and is going Retrograde on September 9th at 28 degrees, and will go DIRECT on November 14th at 15 degrees of Aries. Mars is spending longer than normal in Aries, due to the retrograde phase. It begun its journey in Aries on June 28th, and fill remain there until January 6th 2021.

Where is ARIES in your chart, as Mars is spending a lot of time there this year, due to the Retrograde period. This means that your energy is focused in this particular area of your life. What house is Mars travelling through?

If you are starting something new, like a business, or a project, then use this time wisely to really get all the facts in order and plan and organise so that you can set a date to launch your project or whatever it is you are working on. Mars in Aries is a great fire starter, it will help you to ignite your passion for whatever it is you want to start.

2020 is giving you an opportunity to really focus your energies on getting something new off the ground, with MARS staying in ARIES for such a long time with the retrograde period. When Mars then moves into Taurus in early January 2021, all the work that you put in will begin to manifest through steady progress.

If you want to get something off the ground, begin a new project, or whatever it may be, use this time as a huge opportunity to do it.

VENUS ENTERS LEO

VENUS, the planet of Love and Relationships is shifting signs on September 6th, from the Water sign of Cancer to the Fire sign of LEO.

Venus will remain in Leo until October 3rd, which it then moves into the earth sign of Virgo.

When Venus is transiting the sign of Leo, she likes to shine, be the centre of attention and to dress up and have some fun. Leo is all about fun and is a very playful sign. It is also the sign associated with children and creativity.

When Venus is in Leo, which area of your life(house) in your chart is it activating? Take the opportunity to really love yourself and put energy into self-care when Venus is here, as it is all about shining your light, not like Venus when she was in Cancer, which could have been caught up in family stuff and taking care of others. Take this time to pamper you!

Love yourself more, and this love will radiate out to others.

Blessings,

Ruth x

FULL MOON IN PISCES

The FULL MOON in PISCES falls on September 2nd 2020 at 6.22 am BST at 10 degrees.

Pisces energy is ruled by the Water element, and at the time of this Full Moon, the planet Neptune, which also rules Pisces is near the Moon. This strengthens the Pisces energy. Being mindful of escapist tendencies would be important. Focusing energies on creative outlets, and engaging in spiritual activities would be a positive way to express this energy. Engaging in artistic/musical activities would be good also. Chilling out in general when the Moon is in Pisces is a good idea, and if not possible, carve out some me time during the day.

Venus in Cancer will be exactly opposite Saturn in Capricorn also, and Pluto is pretty close to Saturn also now. Venus is about our desires, self worth, what we value. When Saturn is opposing Venus, there is a possibility of responsibilities regarding families(Capricorn/Cancer axis involved). Issues may be brought to our attention that need to be addressed. Check out where you have 25 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn, and if you have any planets/angles at this degree in your chart, then you may feel the effects more. It is also important to check which houses are being activated, for both the FULL MOON at 10 degrees PISCES and the Venus/Saturn opposition at 25 degrees of Cancer/Capricorn.

FULL MOON BLESSINGS

SEPTEMBER 2020 ASTROLOGY NEWS

Welcome to lovely September. This is a nice time of the year, when everything is beginning to feel like it is winding down, getting ready for the Winter months ahead. I love all the Beautiful colours everywhere as Autumn approaches.

Some Astrology information for you all for the month of SEPTEMBER 2020.

FULL AND NEW MOON DATES:

FULL MOON at 10 degrees of PISCES on SEPTEMBER 2nd at 6.22 am BST.

NEW MOON at 25 degrees of VIRGO on SEPTEMBER 17th at 12 midday BST.

The month begins with the SUN in the earth sign of VIRGO, and it moves into the Air sign of LIBRA on September 22/ 23rd, depending on your location.

MERCURY, the planet of communication moves from VIRGO into LIBRA on September 5th, and then moves into SCORPIO on September 27th.

VENUS, the planet of love, money and values moves from CANCER into LEO on September 6th and remains there until October 3rd, before moving into Virgo.

MARS, the planet of Action is spending a long time in its own sign of ARIES because it is going Retrograde on September 9th and will be remaining in Aries until January 6 2021. It will then move into Taurus. MARS will go DIRECT again on November 14th and continue to travel through Aries.

MARS in Aries energy is great for starting new things. Is there something in your life that you want to start, now is the time to do it. Mars in Aries is full steam ahead, all action. With it going Retrograde, you may find that your energies are being directed inward and you are planning and reassessing your options, not being particularly active, but none the less, you are moving forward in some area of your life. Check out which house is occupied by ARIES in your birth chart.

JUPITER, the planet of expansion, is going DIRECT, having been in Retrograde motion since mid May. It is going direct on September 13th at 17 degrees of Capricorn, and will then continue moving through Capricorn until December 20th, when it will move into AQUARIUS, which is a very interesting time, as it will join will Saturn which will also be at zero degrees of Aquarius. All you Aquarians out there are in for some interesting times in 2021.

SATURN, the planet of structure, is continuing to travel in Retrograde at around 25 degrees of Capricorn. It goes Direct on September 29th at 25 degrees, and moving on into Aquarius on December 17th. It will remain there for the next 2.5 years approx.,

URANUS, the planet of change, remains at 10 and 9 degrees of Taurus as it travels retrograde also.

NEPTUNE, the planet of spirituality, continues to travel retrograde at around 19 degrees of Pisces throughout the month.

PLUTO, the planet of transformation, continues to travel retrograde also at around 22 degrees of Capricorn.

As you can see, there are currently a number of outer planets in retrograde motion, along with MARS going Retrograde in Aries on the 9th of September at 28 degrees. All this retrograde energy tends to bring us into a more inward focused time, very apt with all the covid-19 restrictions that are in place at this time. Use this time wisely as an opportunity to re-assess, re-structure, re-invent areas of your life.

The NORTH NODE of the Moon is travelling from 26 to 23 degrees of Gemini throughout the month, always travelling retrograde!

During September, MARS goes RETROGRADE on September 9th, and JUPITER goes DIRECT on September 13th. It may feel like some areas of your life are slowing down while other areas are speeding up!

Have a lovely September.

Until next time,

Blessings,

NEW MOON IN LEO

The NEW MOON in LEO is on August 19th 2020 at 26 degrees @3.42 am, BST. At the time of the New Moon, the planet MERCURY is close by at 28 degrees of Leo. This brings a lot of communication energy into the mix. An excellent time for some creative thinking and creative ideas. LEO energy is confident and passionate. A time to step into your own power.

Leo also rules children, and at this time you may enjoy being around yours or other peoples’ children. Spending time and having fun together.

The planet MARS which is currently in the Fire sign of ARIES, its home sign, is making a lovely trine(easy aspect) to this New Moon in LEO. All this Fire energy is very conducive to putting all the creativity into action. Not just about coming up with creative ideas but actually putting them into action, with Mars involved. Mars is all about action, and especially when in its own sign of ARIES. There is an opportunity to actively create something new now.

Check out where you have 26 degrees of LEO in your own birth chart, to see what house is being activated by this NEW MOON, and also find out where MARS is travelling through, as these two houses will be significant in how this energy is manifesting in your life.

Take the opportunity to channel your creative energy on this New Moon into a new project, if that is calling to you.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth x

VENUS ENTERS CANCER

The planet VENUS, planet of love and relationships, and which also rules money and values, as she rules both Libra and Taurus, will be moving into the Cardinal Water sign of CANCER on August 7/8th depending on your location.

Cancer is the sensitive, motherly, nurturing, caring sign, and when Venus is in Cancer, relationships work best when this energy can be expressed. In relationships, people with Venus in Cancer can tend to take care of others naturally, and like to look after people. They must watch for a tendency to attract needy individuals who may take advantage of their good nature.

An important lesson for people with Venus in Cancer in their natal chart is to bring more equality into their relationships, so that they remember to look after themselves also, not just everyone else.

This is a lovely placement for nurses, carers, and teachers, especially of young children. People with Venus in Cancer tend to know how to make you feel loved and cared for, which is a beautiful quality to have, although at times they may tend to smother the other person, doing too much for them perhaps, especially if the other person is a very independent type.

Food for thought for all you Venus in Cancer people out there!

Venus will remain in Cancer until September 6th 2020 when she moves in Sunny LEO.

Let me know where your Venus is, or if you don’t know, message me, and I will look it up for you.

Blessings,

Ruth. x

MERCURY ENTERS LEO

On August 5th, Mercury, the planet of communication moves from its long period in Cancer, which included the Retrograde, into Sunny LEO. It will remain in Leo for a short period, before moving into Earthy Virgo on August 20th 2020.

People born with Mercury in Leo tend to be creative thinkers, and are usually confident in their speech. They have to be mindful not to come across as arrogant or know it all, but generally this is not the case. It is vital for these people to express their creative gifts which may flow through their mental energy. Creative writing would be something that comes to mind.

Until next time,

Blessings,

NEW MOON in LEO – August 19th 2020 at 3.42 am BST at 26 degrees of Leo.

Planetary activity throughout AUGUST 2020:-

The SUN moves from LEO to VIRGO on August 22/23, depending on your location.

MERCURY, the planet of communication, moves from Cancer into LEO, on August 5th, and then on into VIRGO on August 20th.

JUPITER continues travelling retrograde in Capricorn, from 20 to 17 degrees of Capricorn throughout August.

SATURN is coming to the end of its journey in Capricorn, and will move into Aquarius in December 2020. It will be travelling retrograde also, from 27 to 25 degrees of Capricorn throughout August.

URANUS, goes Retrograde at 10 degrees of TAURUS on August 15th and will remain around 10 degrees throughout August. Uranus will be spending quite a lot of time at 10 degrees, retrograding back and forth, so anyone with planets at 10 degrees of TAURUS, or any of the other Fixed signs of Leo, Aquarius or Scorpio will also feel the effects of this transit. Uranus brings sudden changes and upheaval, and can also bring sudden insights and revelations!

NEPTUNE is travelling in retrograde motion also, moving from 20 to 19 degrees. of PISCES. Neptune has been sitting at 20 degrees for a while, and will affecting anybody with planets or angles at this degree. It is a very slow moving planet, so the effects happen over a long period. Neptune has a dissolving quality, and people experiencing a transit may feel as if everything is out of their control, things could be happening that they can do nothing about etc., It is also an opportune time to deepen your connection with spirit and engage regularly in meditation practices, and any type of creative activity that you feel drawn to.

PLUTO is travelling retrograde also through Capricorn, moving from 23 to 22 degrees throughout August. Another very slow moving planet, and impacting those with planets at these degrees.

Throughout August there will be 5 planets Retrograde, and Chiron in Aries also went retrograde in July. With a lot of Retrograde energy, we have the opportunity to re-do, re-visit, -re-organise, re-structure etc., The energies tend to be more inward focused, which gives us an opportunity to review our lives and make any changes we may feel guided to make, as we travel forward on our journey.

Wishing you all a great August.

Until next time,

Blessings,

FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS

Aquarius energy is original and unique, and innovative, and with the ruler, Uranus involved in the energy of this Full Moon, a good time to think outside the box on creative projects, with the Sun being in Leo.

Write down any plans, ideas etc., that come to you around this time, as they could prove to be very beneficial going forward. Be open to inspirational ideas.

The Full Moon shines a light on anything that needs attention. Check to see if you have any planets or angles being hit by it, also which house it is in, as these areas of your life will be highlighted.

FULL MOON BLESSINGS

Ruth x

SUN ENTERS LEO

The SUN moves from the Lunar sign of Cancer to the Sunny sign of LEO on July July 22nd 2020. The sign of Leo is ruled by the SUN, as is easily expressed in its own sign. Leo loves to shine and can love the limelight. Creativity is a natural ability of Leos.

Everybody has Leo somewhere in their natal birth chart, whether or not you have planets or angles or nodes in Leo. The house that is ruled by Leo is important as it is ruled by the Sun. Check which house is ruled by Leo to give you more insights into how you express your Sun sign. For instance, you might have the Sun in Taurus, and Leo is in your 3rd house of communication, and although you might not have any planets here, the Sun (which rules Leo) is being expressed through the energy of the 3rd house of communication. This would indicate that 3rd house matters are strong in the expression of the Sun. This person may find themselves always on the go, short trips, relationships with siblings important. They may express themselves in a Leo way, dramatic and engaging.

Leo energy is all about fun and if you think about the Sun, which rules Leo, it makes us feel good.

Have you any planets or angles etc., in the sign of LEO? This is a highly creative sign and it is very important to express this energy.

Enjoy the lovely Leo energy, and have some FUN!

Until next time,

Ruth x

NEW MOON IN CANCER

JULY 20th 2020.

This is the second NEW MOON in CANCER. The first was on June 20th, at zero degrees, and was also a Solar Eclipse. This second New Moon falls at 28 degrees of CANCER on July 20th 2020 at 6.33 pm BST. It is quite unusual to have two New Moons in the same sign, but as you can see, one was at the very beginning of the sign, and this second one is at the end of Cancer. We had the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn in between on July 5th.

There is a significant aspect from the planet SATURN to this NEW MOON IN CANCER. Saturn is opposing(challenging aspect) it exactly. When Saturn is making a challenging aspect it can cause blocks, limitations, but there is also opportunity for structure and planning. It is best to tune into the positive expression of Saturn, whether or not it is a challenging aspect, so that you can make the most of this New Moon Energy.

The planet Pluto is also close to Saturn in this opposition aspect to the New Moon in Cancer, but Saturn is exact, so will have a stronger effect.

Check to see if you have any planets, angles, nodes etc., at 28 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer. It is a good idea to make notes in a journal/diary of the New and Full Moons, so you can look at any significant things that may occur around these times.

With Saturn in the mix of the energy of this New Moon, use this time to get organised and put plans in place for anything new that you are putting in place, especially with Mars now being in Aries, which is great for new beginnings and for being motivated.

Until next time,

New Moon Blessings,

Ruth x

MOON AND MARS IN ARIES

Both the MOON and MARS are in ARIES today and tomorrow, 11th and 12th of July 2020. The Moon is currently moving closer to Mars. Be mindful of emotional outbursts and over-reacting to situations. This can be a volatile combination. Best to put your energies into something productive today, especially if you are feeling a bit edgy with this energy at the moment.

Stay active, either physically or mentally, or both, so that the energies are expressed.

Chiron is also in Aries now and along with the Moon and Mars being there also, you may feel drawn into going over old ground in relation to old and past wounds/situations that were negative experiences. Just be mindful of this and observe your energies.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth x

MERCURY GOES DIRECT

MERCURY goes DIRECT on JULY 12th at 5 degrees 29 of CANCER, and will remain in the Water sign of Cancer for the rest of the month.

You may feel more clear now, going forward, as Mercury moves out of the Retrograde phase. The time is good now to make those decisions you may have been putting off.

Where is Cancer in your Chart, as Mercury is now moving through this area and may be bringing your thoughts there.

Until next time.

Blessings,

Ruth x

JUPITER CONJUNCT PLUTO

The Planets JUPITER and PLUTO will be conjunct(together) between July 5th to 8th 2020 at 23 degrees of Capricorn. Jupiter and Pluto were together at 24 degrees of Capricorn from June 22nd to June 30th. They will be together at 22 degrees of Capricorn in November also. These two planets have been travelling together for a while now, and Jupiter will move on into Aquarius in December with Saturn.

While they are together, they make a powerful punch. Powerful and expansive energy. Check your chart for planets or angles around 23 degrees of Capricorn, and also Cancer, Aries or Libra, but this will affect any planets in Capricorn and Cancer the most.

Jupiter is the lucky planet, along with being the largest, and Pluto is all about transformation, and this energy can be very empowering. Something significant may occur if you have planets exactly at 23 degrees of Capricorn!

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth x

FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN AND LUNAR ECLIPSE

The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse falls on July 5th 2020 at 5.44 am BST, at 13 degrees of the Cardinal Earth sign of CAPRICORN.

Have you any planets or angles in your birth chart at 13 degrees of Capricorn, or any of the other Cardinal signs of Cancer, Libra or Aries? The Full Moon will impact you more if it is making aspects in your chart.

At the time of this FULL MOON in Capricorn, Uranus is making a nice easy aspect(trine) from Taurus. This adds an element of the energies of Uranus to the mix, and making changes, while also releasing anything no longer serving you will be easier.

Mercury is still Retrograde in Cancer, going direct in another week. Keep this in mind also, so that your thoughts don’t become stuck in the past, going over old hurts etc., The Capricorn Moon is earthy, solid and grounded. A good time to engage with Mother Earth by being out in nature, taking part in a ceremony, or doing some gardening.

What do you like to do to ground yourself? Connect with the earth in some way during the Full Moon period to deepen your roots with the planet, and to keep your mind focused and clear. Take off your shoes and walk barefoot in the grass. Stand still, and take some long deep breaths to slow you down and earth your energies.

Until next time,

Blessings,

Ruth x

SATURN IS BACK IN CAPRICORN

The planet SATURN moved into Aquarius on March 22nd 2020, and has now moved back(retrograded) into CAPRICORN for the last time. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, and also the co-ruler of Aquarius(along with Uranus).

This shift will be significant for anybody with planets, angles, or nodes in the late degrees of Capricorn, as Saturn will remain between 29 and 25 degrees of Capricorn until December 17th 2020, when it will leave Capricorn and not return there again until the 2040’s! as Saturn spends approx., 2.5 years in each sign.

Saturn is associated with karma and law and order. Some key words would be discipline, order, structure, authority and also anything long lasting. Usually in charts of couples, Saturn will be making some strong connections, suggesting longevity in the relationship.

If Saturn is hitting on your natal nodes of the moon in the late degrees of either Capricorn or Cancer, then there will be opportunities to let go of old baggage and parts of your life that no longer serve you(South Node). For the North Node in Capricorn people, this will be an excellent time for opportunities to move forward in your life. New people may enter your life and also as Jupiter will be hitting on the late degrees of Capricorn later in the year, more opportunities and good fortune for North Node in late degrees of Capricorn People.

Jupiter and Pluto are also in the late degrees of Capricorn, so there is a lot going on in the collective with Capricorn energy, which is associated with Governments, Banks and structures in society. I feel there will be a lot of activity between now and the end of this year, as Jupiter will also leave Capricorn and move into Aquarius along with Saturn in December 2020. This doesn’t happen very often, and Aquarius is about freedom and so it will be interesting to see how this energy manifests as time moves on.

Until next time,

Ruth x

JULY ASTROLOGY NEWS

Welcome to the month of JULY. I hope you are all enjoying the Summer, for those of you living in the Northern Hemisphere, and that life hasn’t been too difficult during this covid-19 experience!

FULL and NEW MOON dates for JULY 2020

FULL MOON and LUNAR ECLIPSE on JULY 5th at 5.44 am at 13 degrees of CAPRICORN.

NEW MOON in CANCER on JULY 20th at 6.33 pm at 28 degrees of CANCER. This is the 2nd New Moon in Cancer in 2 months. This was because the first was at 00 degrees of Cancer just after the Summer Solstice on June 21st. This second New Moon in Cancer is at the later degrees of Cancer.

This brings more opportunities to set goals and intentions around Cancer themes. Family, emotions, nurturing, caring, ancestral healing, and healing old wounds from the past etc.,

MERCURY GOES DIRECT on July 12th at 5 degrees 29 of Cancer, and will remain in Cancer for the rest of July.

VENUS, the planet of love, relationships, money and values will remain in the Air sign of GEMINI throughout July, starting at 6 degrees and ending at 23 degrees.

MARS, the planet of Action, will remain in ARIES throughout July, beginning the month at 2 degrees and finishing at 17 degrees.

JUPITER, the planet of expansion, being larger than life, will continue its Retrograde journey through Capricorn, travelling from 23 to 20 degrees of Capricorn.

SATURN, the planet of structure, discipline, organisation etc., will also continue its Retrograde journey, beginning the month at 00 degrees of the Air sign Aquarius, and then travelling back into Capricorn on July 2nd, and ending the month at 27 degrees of Capricorn. This is especially important for people with planets or angles in the later degrees of Capricorn, or early degrees of Aquarius. Saturn will remain in the later degrees of Capricorn until December 17th, when it will then move on into Aquarius and remain there for approx two and a half years. It will be joined by JUPITER also on December 20th, and both Jupiter and Saturn will be travelling together through the Air sign of Aquarius, which will be very significant for anyone with planets in Aquarius.

URANUS, the planet of CHANGE, will continue moving through the Earth sign of TAURUS, moving from 9 to 10 degrees throughout the month. Any Taureans out there? Change is looming, if it hasn’t already hit you, as it moves through your Fixed sign that really doesn’t like change too much!

NEPTUNE, the planet of spirituality, creativity etc., will remain around 20 degrees of PISCES throughout July, travelling very slowly in Retrograde motion. Anybody with planets at 20 degrees of Pisces especially, will be feeling this transit as a boundary less energy. Excellent for any type of meditation, regression therapy, hypnosis etc., It would be very important to maintain grounding practices throughout this time, if you are being affected. Great for artistic endeavours but important not to float away altogether!

PLUTO, the planet of Transformation continues travelling in Retrograde motion from 24 to 23 degrees of Capricorn. It will move to 23 degrees on July 5th, for those of you who may have been experiencing the intensity of Pluto being at 24 degrees for some time, you will start to feel some relief.

The NORTH NODE moves from 29 to 28 degrees of the Air sign of GEMINI on July 9th. The North Node moves quite slowly, spending approx., 18 months in each sign, and moves in retrograde motion, so ends its journey at 00 degrees of Gemini, then moves into late degrees of Taurus and so on.

JUPITER conjunct(at same degree)PLUTO at 23 degrees of CAPRICORN from July 5-8. Jupiter and Pluto getting together is a powerful combination of energies. If you have any planets or angles at 23(or within 2 or 3 degrees) of Capricorn, you will certainly experience some powerful energies around this time. Jupiter and Pluto pack a powerful punch!

Wishing you all a very happy July.

MARS ENTERS ARIES

VENUS GOES DIRECT

VENUS, the planet of Love and Relationships, Money and Values, will be going DIRECT at 5 degrees of GEMINI on June 25th. When Venus was Retrograde, it gave us the opportunity to re-evaluate our lives, livelihood, our relationship to money, and our relationships with other people in our lives.

You may have done some de-cluttering in all of these areas. You may find that as Venus goes Direct that you have some different feelings about all these things, especially as the world was going through a very reflective time during the covid-19 pandemic.

As Venus starts moving Direct again, there may be more opportunities opening up to link up with friends that you haven’t seen for a while. You may finally be able to go to the hairdressers and beauticians to beautify yourselves, all very Venusian things to do.

As Venus is Direct in Gemini, communication and socialising will definitely be highlighted.

Enjoy yourselves and have some FUN!

Blessings,

NEW MOON and Solar Eclipse

The NEW MOON and Solar Eclipse in CANCER falls on June 21st 2020 at 7.41 am at 00 degrees. CANCER is a Cardinal, Water sign.

This NEW MOON in Cancer falls the day after the SUMMER SOLSTICE, which is also known as the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year.

This is the time for NEW BEGINNINGS, and setting Intentions for the coming month. Check your birth chart to see where Cancer is located to see which area of activity you can focus your goals and intentions on.

Cancer energy is all about nurturing and protecting, and empathy and understanding. Family is ruled by the sign of Cancer. You might like to send some healing to your family, or focus your energies on your family to bring in more peace, harmony, and emotional healing. Ancestral Healing is another area that would be good to focus on when Cancerian energies are strong.

Until next time,

Blessings,
