Pluto opposite Sun, Thursday 10th June

On Thursday 10th June at 7:30 pm BST

The Pluto opposite natal Sun transit is a notoriously difficult aspect to navigate because of Pluto’s depth, power and relation to the shadow psyche. This is why I’d like to share my views on Pluto, how Pluto operates within the psyche and some tips on both navigating and surviving the Pluto opposite Sun transit.

On Thursday 10th June at 7:30 pm BST, I’ll be sharing some of my own experiences of my Pluto opposite Sun transit, what has helped me to survive this transit up to now and how I have prepared for this transit in the years leading up to it (which will include some electional astrology using traditional methods).

Chiron in the Houses of the Natal Chart, Thursday 8th April 2021

On Thursday 8th April at 7:30 pm BST

Chiron’s significance in the Astrology chart can be notoriously difficult to understand because of his dual nature, his eccentricity and his complexity. It’s in my understanding that Chiron’s very nature deserves great respect and acknowledgement because to consider Chiron is to also consider aspects of the shadow and the effects of the deep and painful wounds on the emotional body that Chiron represents.

On Thursday 8th April at 7:30 pm BST, I’ll be sharing my view on Chiron in the natal chart based on some theory from the archetype and mythos of Chiron, my research and my experience with clients during my first 4 years practising Astrology.

I’ll also share an explanation of Chiron in each house of the natal chart.

It’s a Full Moon in Libra on Sunday!

There’s a Full Moon in Libra this Sunday, 28th March, at 7:48 pm in the UK.

The Full Moon in Libra will be forming a nice grand air trine with Saturn in Aquarius and a Mars – North Node conjunction in Gemini. This then forms a kite pattern when the South Node is also taken into account here. In fact, it forms two; one with South Node at the apex and the other with the Sun at the apex. So when we look at these in terms of focal points, it could mean that we’re feeling driven right now to go ahead and put the things into motion that have been mulling around in our heads over the past few months or even longer. There might be a range of different things and these might be things that a very air element things to do such as writing, talking, socialising, networking, sharing ideas and following ambitions etc. Anything shared with an audience or groups of people are air sign things to do. We may find we are stepping into these things almost instinctively while seeking emotional balance with the Moon in Libra as part of this configuration. With the Sun also at an apex position in almost exact conjunctions with Venus and Chiron, we may also feel compelled to fall into an act now, think later kind of mode and this also shows that a) we can be warriors of compassion and support for one another, especially where romance is concerned and b) this can be used to fuel our passion in our artistic and creative endeavours.

Our Full Moon is in Virgo Tomorrow, February 27th!

There’s a Full Moon in Virgo tomorrow, 27th February, at around 8:17 am in the UK.

Virgo is an Earth sign that is Mutable and ruled by Mercury, so the atmospheric colours and creature comforts that may surround while the Moon is in this sign may be centred around work, keeping busy and being generally helpful and kind towards others. Mercury is all about connecting, but one of the signatures of Virgo is to be able to take in a lot of practical information and deeply analyse it with an accuracy and speed that can really take our goals and ambitions to the next level, regardless of the projects we are currently working on. As an Earth sign, this energy can really help us to juggle several projects simultaneously in order to stay ahead in our day-to-day lives. These are just a few of the great things about having the Moon in Virgo, especially while all other planets are sharing the signs Capricorn through Taurus; we are presented with the opportunity to take advantage of the usual gifts offered by the sign Virgo.

The 11th February 2021 New Moon

Our next New Moon will be in Aquarius this Thursday, 11th February, at 19:05 here in the UK.

The New Moon on Thursday will be in Aquarius at 23°, marking the start of a fresh journey for all of us this month, with reference to similar energetic themes of a much larger journey that was kickstarted by the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on the 21st December last year. Important Aquarius configurations and lunations send out ripples of energy, calling us to become more aware of our surroundings and each other. Aquarius is a conscious sign, ruled by the transpersonal planet Uranus, that can act as something of a truth serum both personally and in the collective conscious and this can really help as a glue within society, that binds us together with common goals towards global insight and positive change.

Joining the New Moon in Aquarius are the Mercury retrograde, Saturn in domicile and a partile conjunction between Venus and Jupiter at 12°. Venus and Jupiter so close together like this will bring a huge dose of positive enhancement to the whole effect of the sign of Aquarius, which I think is in some ways helping to mitigate some of the problems usually associated with the Mercury retrograde, especially as Mercury is so supported in the sign of Aquarius already.
