NEW MOON in LEO
Mercury turns direct.
Mercury turns direct.
Venus squares Uranus
A possible surprising and unlooked for development is on the cards this morning as Venus squares Uranus. A touch nervy.
07.05 The very young Moon, void of course as this(GMT)day starts, is at perigee, fastest and nearest to the Earth all month.
Another practically-based 'tear and repair' day. Certainly things get done. Events and experiences are developing quickly now with Mercury slowly picking up speed. Venus in Leo is on the chase of Mars, also in Leo, whom she will meet in Virgo on Aug 24th at 4 degrees of that sign. The young Moon rapidly waxing in 'business like' Virgo challenges Neptune today.
12.40 The Moon at 15 Virgo square Jupiter at 15 Sagittarius
14.03 The Moon at 15 Virgo waning trine Saturn at 15 Capricorn
15.13 The Moon at 16 Virgo sextiles her node from north of the ecliptic.
18.31 The Moon at 18 Virgo opposition Neptune at 18 Pisces
There have been two mass shootings in the USA in 24 hours. 29 fatalities in all so far. Transiting Uranus is hovering squaring the US lunar node this month, stirring up a political hornet's nest. Globally the transiting Mars/Pluto midpoint is exactly opposite transiting Uranus (sudden violence)in the next few days across Taurus/Scorpio. Because of these mass shootings, 'gun control' may well will be a major 2020 election issue. The USA (Sibly) chart is sure under increasing stress this year. Progressed Moon in Capricorn is entering a progressed cardinal cross which lasts for the remainder of 2019. US Progressed Moon opposes progressed Jupiter, (amplifying the existing polarisation) Oct 2nd 2019, squares progressed Mars, (aggravating public life) 5th Dec 2019, and squares progressed Chiron (wounding) 12th Dec 2019. Transiting Pluto will oppose the US natal Mercury (overwhelming changes) all through 2020. The US progressed Moon enters Aquarius on Nov 3rd 2020 the very day of the 2020 US Election.
Today... striking a fine balance..
00.17 The waxing crescent Moon decelerating at 7 Libra waxing quincunx Uranus at 7 Taurus
06.01 The Moon at 10 Libra waxing sextile Venus at 10 Leo
00.51 The waxing crescent Moon decelerating at 21 Libra waning square Pluto at 21 Capricorn
An eventful day, full of everything. A waxing Moon battling through Scorpio serves as a backdrop for the next couple of days while the Sun and Venus play out a very energising 'fire-trine' to a near stationary Jupiter in Sagittarius. Very positive, expansive, game playing is the order of the days.
02.56 The waxing Moon approaching First Quarter at 7 Scorpio opposition Uranus at 7 Taurus.
The Moon now in Sagittarius adds a ritzy fire to proceedings. 'Move on out' is the message.
A day of expanding horizons, blasts and furies.
02.19 The Moon at 16 Sagittarius waxing trine Venus at 16 Leo
The waxing and decelerating Moon starts the day void of course in Sagittarius.
The day mellows, takes root, establishes itself with ambition and presence.
Lunar pressures are rising as Thursday's Full Moon approaches. A realistic, harnessing and stabilizing force is at work today. The waxing gibbous Moon in Capricorn occults Saturn and conjuncts Pluto. Hard going and very real. 02.28 URANUS TURNS RETROGRADE 09.54 The Moon conjunction Saturn at 15 Capricorn observable as a lunar occultation of Saturn from the area on world map below.
09.31 The Moon at 27 Capricorn waxing quincunx Mars at 27 Leo
15.37 The Moon ingress Aquarius
Superior Conjunction of Venus.
The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars all in Leo are ready to be opposed over the next two days by an almost Full Moon now in Aquarius.
The concentration of Leo energy, characterised by a self propelling, recreational quality will shortly, starting next Monday, start to modulate, as all four bodies tumble into Virgo, bringing about a movement towards an earthier, refined, methodical, 'pruning' energy.
At the moment however we are bathed in the Lammas Full Moon experience. Universal extroversion.
In the wake of the full moon we have an unsettling Mercury square Uranus giving us the gitters. Expect changes of mind and unlooked for changes of direction. A 'nothing is easy' sort of day.
01.02 The very slowly waning full Moon decelerating at 29 Aquarius opposition Mars at 29 Leo, moon void.
03.51 The Moon ingresses Pisces joining Neptune in this sign.
A tight 'finger of fate' yod pattern manifests around 17:10 GMT, the focus of which is on that agitated Mercury.
Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces
A 'dream of life' day, dreamy, distant, impressionable, removed, sensitive, artistic.
The Moon starts this (GMT) day void of course in Pisces. The day drifts a little, rudderless, until the Moon ingresses Aries 16:34.
05.20 Mars ingresses Virgo starting something of a planetary landslide from Leo to this sign. Venus follows suit on Wednesday, the Sun on Friday and Mercury on Aug 29th, the day before the next New Moon.
Mars in Virgo brings a time of 'works'. He is particularly busy this time round, making strong aspects to all the planets during the next 46 days. Mars is conjunct Venus on Aug 24th at 4 Virgo, a 'pinch point' for all personal matters. Mars trines Uranus on Aug 28th, invoking practical invention. Mars is conjunct the Sun and Mercury on Sept 2nd and 3rd at 10 Virgo, the highlight of the residence and overseeing a time of great 'refinement' and practicality. Mars trines Saturn, further extensive works, construction, building, on Sept 9th, squares Jupiter on Sept 12th, opposes Neptune on the day of the Full Moon Sept 14th and finally trines Pluto on Sept 19th. Mars enters Libra on Oct 4th. So then we are entering a time of of personal industry and project where precision and perfection are strived for. In the wider sphere Mars in Virgo trine Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn has the symbolism of investment in weaponry and an emphasis on military strategy. Politically and socially the devil resides in the detail. Splitting hairs, the letter of the law, the fly in the ointment.
An important day. Facing the issue. 'Atonement'. Enterprising creativity.
Venus is three degrees from Mars on the far side of the Sun and closing. A material manifestation of a love union, an alliance of useful convenience and a start of a new affair, or the rekindling of an old relationship are all possible.
In dealing with (UK) Prince Andrew, astrologers have a reliably accurate birth time(as with all the royals). Andrew is currently undergoing his second Saturn Return, happens to us all as we approach the age of 60 and is a time of reckoning. Ahead of him Transiting Pluto is squaring his MC, wrecking his reputation and standing, and transiting Neptune is conjunct his Mercury all through 2019, scrambling and undermining thoughts, plans and perceptions. No surprise he is under such pressure and in the limelight right now. Transiting Pluto conjuncts his natal Venus and Mars in the four years ahead. Plenty transformation and change are on the cards for the Duke of York.
