Regarded as tremendously important throughout the history of Mundane Astrology, Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions are also known as ‘Great Conjunctions’ to Astrologers and Astronomers alike and are said to mark the beginnings of new cultural, political and economic eras1, occurring around every 20 years.
First, a brief word on 2020
The day of the Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st appeared quite a lot in the media, coming at a time when Astrology has been growing in popularity at an increasing rate, which really fits in with the symbology of these planets in Aquarius, as the sign of Aquarius with ruler Uranus tends to denote all of the occult science subjects, including Astrology. These conjunctions occur almost every 20 years, usually in clusters of three due to the retrograde motions of the planets yet this time, there is only one.Continue reading
There’s a New Moon Total Eclipse in Sagittarius tomorrow, 14th December, at 16:17 in the UK.
The New Moon tomorrow will be in Sagittarius at 23°, conjoining Mercury on the Moon’s South Node (also both in Sagittarius) whilst trining Mars in Aries. So there’s some fire energy here! Yes, even though Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is still in Capricorn, flanked closely by both Saturn and Pluto, we do have some fire working-out within these trines of the New Moon. I feel that Jupiter’s position in late Capricorn in-between these two heavy planets is perfectly symbolic of the position we find ourselves in at the moment, as a nation (and globally). We are nearing the end of one of the heaviest, most transformational years we have had for a long time in which many of our freedoms have been thwarted, much like some of Jupiter’s free and fiery energy may be thwarted during the time he finds himself sandwiched amidst this configuration of planets. Jupiter here represents us and our personal freedom to explore the world and our surroundings and our sense of an ending to this adversity can be represented by Jupiter’s onward movement out of Capricorn and into an air sign; Jupiter will be strengthened via triplicity ruler in Aquarius here.
Therefore, as the ruler of our New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is in a somewhat frustrated position, looking forward to an end to all this, which will no doubt be marked by a series of perfectly-timed conjunctions with Saturn in Aquarius, we have a good dose of fire energy to feed our restlessness and creative endeavours as we lie in wait for the world to get back to ‘normal’. That fire energy is in the shape of a New Moon with a detriment Mercury.Continue reading
The Post ~ 14th September 2019
There’s a Full Moon in Pisces next Saturday, the 14th September, exacting at around 04:30 am in the UK.
This Full Moon is all about service, self sacrifice and the renewal of efforts towards the well-structured plans we have had in place so far throughout this year, as we aim further towards our long-term goals and well-thought-out projects. There may have been times this year when we have felt less faithful or like times are a little too hard, but this Full Moon on Saturday and both the preceding and following weeks should finally help bring about a sense of newness of hope or a new boost of gusto.Continue reading
Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon
There’s a Full Moon this Wednesday, the 24th October, exacting at around 4:45pm in the UK.
The Moon at 1°13′ Taurus is all about those creature comforts and kicking back with those closest to you, so this week (especially as it’s the school holidays here in the UK), it will be great to just find yourself time to relax and have fun. Because there may have been high levels of productivity for the majority of the year so far, with Saturn in domicile and creating such brilliant aspects with so many of our Full Moons, it looks like we can finally begin to see some benefits for all our hard work and therefore ease off a little.

Tips for making the most out of the coming Full Moon
There’s a Full Moon this Tuesday, the 25th September, exacting at around 2:50am in the UK.
The Full Moon, at 1°59′ Aries, could bring about an air of relief for many of us this week, as Aries is a sign that is known to enthusiastically bounce forwards through any dilemma or event, which could perhaps help some of us to become ’emotionally unstuck’ from some of the things that have been weighing on our minds and our hearts lately. The Moon symbolises our inner, most sensitive worlds and the Full Moon especially has a tendency to help guide us through these in different ways, Continue reading
An Astrological forecast for this New Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Tomorrow, the New Moon is in Aries at 26°, which is the same degree of the New Moon that was in Pisces on the 17th March earlier this year. This means that those of you born with your Sun, another personal planet (Mercury, Venus, Mars or Moon) or an important angle Continue reading
An Astrological forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Yes, as you’ve probably heard, there’s another Blood Moon tomorrow, which will make it the second one this year! This time the Moon will become Full during a Mercury retrograde in Aries, but, even though we may have all had our own Continue reading
Your forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Simply because the Full Moon tomorrow follows on from two eclipses, the Super Blood Blue Moon Total Eclipse on the 31st January and the Partial Solar Eclipse on the 15th February, I have been quietly expectant of a lot happening this week for everybody due to the carrying over of such potent energies from the previous Continue reading
Highlights forecast for this New Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
The New Moon that occurs this Wednesday, the 17th January, just like the Full Moon that occurred two weeks ago on the 2nd January, exacts at around 20 minutes past 2 in the early hours of the morning in the UK, so similarly, it will become a New Moon the day before, late on the 16th January in Western Greenland and the USA.

Highlights forecast for this Full Moon period and the fortnight ahead.
Let’s begin by saying, there are a few striking things about our first Full Moon of 2018, that occurs on the 1st January in Western Greenland and the USA, yet becomes exact on the 2nd January in the UK and most other parts of the world. The first is the Grand Trine pattern in the element of Water that the Moon is joining in on. Continue reading
