Cosmic News

From time to time I will post some ‘Cosmic News’, when the planets are having a major impact or there is a cosmic configuration of particular interest.

I am not an Astrologer, however, any Tarot practitioner will know that each of the 78 cards in the deck have a direct affiliation with the planets and Astrology. Therefore a working knowledge of the Heavens is a requirement for any serious Tarot reader. I also post the ‘ Cosmic News’ on my Facebook page and Twitter.

JULY 2018 ASTRO NEWS AND TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

 

A major Luna event occurs on Thursday, July 12, with a new moon in Cancer begins a new series of eclipses. Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn) will be impacted by these events in a major way: eclipses influence the areas of our chart related to destiny, so pay close attention during this partial solar eclipse. Notice important people, events, and circumstances.

22 July sees the Sun move into Leo, a time of heightened drama but also a time to shine!

26 July Mercury goes retrograde until 20 August. Allow extra time for travel, avoid signing anything binding/legal and be aware that technology, particularly to do with communication, is liable to malfunction.

27 July we have a ‘Blood Moon’ total Luna eclipse in Aquarius. This is rather big news for us all…

 

HERE IS THE SUMMARY FOR YOUR SIGN + TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

 

Aries: This month’s cosmic activity could be exhausting! Take every chance you get to rest and restore your energy. July 12th New Moon activates a fresh start for home and family and new paths will begin to unfold. Avoid being a mediator or referee – it could back-fire!

Tarot Card – The Hanged Man. Transition, readjustment, limbo, paradox. Anticipation of progress, time to prepare for the next step, changing priorities.

ASTRO NEWS & TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH MAY 2018

The full moon of 29th April is still influencing us all. This month, May, brings great change for all signs, as the great outer planet Uranus will change signs and enter Taurus for the first time since 1934 to 1942. This year, Uranus will show us what to expect in the coming years and give us all time to adjust to the new energies. Uranus remains in Taurus from May 15 to November 16, 2018. Uranus will turn retrograde from November 16 to March 6, 2019. When Uranus returns to Taurus next year, he will remain for seven years, until 2026.

Uranus is the planet of innovation, disruption, independence, eccentric, rebellious, and creative – emphasising the realm of the sciences and mathematics. Uranus is associated with electricity, with TV, the Internet, and all newly invested forms, such as artificial and alternate reality. Uranus strikes suddenly and without warning, the reason astrologers nickname Uranus the Great Awakener. Uranus will sweep away anything that is not of future relevance.

Aries: This month you will be able to consolidate your gains and enhance your reputation. The full moon on April 29 urged you to stabilize your finances. Career progresses well in May – it is also a great time for all manner of negotiations. Management will notice and appreciate your efforts you will also start to see ‘the bigger picture’. This is a unique and positive month for Aries, just be aware not to ‘burn the candle at both ends’.

Tarot Card: The Sun Communication, sharing, happiness, joy, positive energy, creativity, growth. Accomplishment in love, new friendship, belief in self, self-confidence.

Taurus: This is an important month for you – Uranus, the planet of chaos, disruption, genius, innovation, independence, and all things unexpected, leaves Aries for a spell and enters Taurus. The phase of your life will be exciting, you can make all the bold moves you have dreamt about and you will be sure of your direction. A new confidence and independence rises within you, renown may well come your way. Creativity is highlighted.

Tarot Card: Four of Swords Repose, temporary retreat, contemplation, truce, self-nurture, relaxing and taking ease, standing back and reviewing the situation, preparing for the future.

Gemini: Uranus in Taurus, will trigger part of the chart that is associated with a highly creative energy for you. New ideas and endeavours are highlighted. You may be are highly analytical, but with this influence, you’ll be willing to explore your playful and experimental self and allow you to stand out. Great ideas may come to you in flashes. Those ideas will spring from deep within your subconscious. You’ll work best being solo and able to express your originality. Mercury is your ruler, and its influence with Uranus makes you a super accomplished communicator. Uranus is called the planet of genius for good reason

Tarot Card: Six of Pentacles Generosity, willingness, gifts, consideration. Loss and gain, give and take, shifts in power, seeking approval.

Cancer: This month brings respite from last month and a more harmonious environment. Uranus has been in Aries for some time, causing disruption and change, you may feel the effects with a completely new job, or a complete career switch. Uranus in Aries was very challenging for you because Uranus and Taurus compliments your Cancer Sun, and the sign of Aries does not. Reviewing the past years you’ve experienced many changes and challenges to your career. You may have encompassed a career change, or altered the way you work via learning new aspects of your craft.

Tarot Card: Strength – Strength, courage, awareness, compassion. Facing reality, taking control of your life, learning to take responsibility for your actions, ability to forgive, inner strength, awareness of your instinctive responses, tolerance.

Leo: May will be significant for all but especially for Leo. Uranus, the planet of surprising, unanticipated events, for the first time will enter Taurus in your house of recognition, rewards, and achievement.

You may have enrolled on a college course. Or, you may have received recognition for your creativity. Uranus is the planet of surprise, but is also associated with foreign people, so you may meet and interact with people from backgrounds very different from yours. Rest assured there will be excitement and stimulation in your career.

Tarot Card: Knight of Swords Self assured, incisive, frank, impetuous, impatient, critical, powerful intellect, analytical at the expense of intuition and emotion.

Virgo: Very noticeably life is changing for the better. Legal and financial matters might have been of recent concern. This period of challenge is slowly drawing to a close. When you get to March 2019, Uranus won’t return to your finance zone in your lifetime. Towards the end of this year and the start of next year your two financial houses are given a boost by the full moons in November 18 and March 19, you will see the difference. So whatever the challenges your are experiencing now, take heart, this phase is temporary!

Tarot Card: Four of Wands   Celebration, joy, spontaneity, freedom, exuberant about life and love, enjoying a happy event, domestic harmony, feeling proud of your achievements, being released from the chains of responsibility, feeling free, dumping emotional baggage.

Libra: This month you’ll be concerned with how to enhance your financial situation. Early in the month any financial talks will see deals conclude, and it appears that there is help to increase your cash flow. However, you’ll need to retain a conservative attitude to your finances. You may also be exploring the idea of buying or selling property, if this is the case, arrange a meeting with your lender quickly, the full moon’s influence of April 29 is only potent for the first few days of this month. The timing is also good for you to entertain the idea of renovation, selling, moving, renting as you have three powerful planets supporting this aspect of your home and environment
Tarot Card: Six of Wands   Pride, victory, reward, accomplishment, being centre of attention, feeling accomplished, taking it all in your stride, remember to be humble!

Scorpio: This is a significant month, if you have made any kind of agreement recently it will remain long term. Particularly in the area of relationships, Uranus will introduce an entirely new energy that you’ve never experienced before. Stimulation and excitement will come from your marriage partner, or to a business partner, or both. If you are married, your partner may surprise you in different ways, ditto business partner. Uranus is the surprise planet and questions traditions, too. Anything Uranus considers no longer appropriate he sweeps away in an instant, but he also assists you to think of more productive ways of handling the same matter. Be aware and cautious about who you sign as a business partner, agent, manger, accountant, creative partner, or other professional you consider joining forces with in your career Do your research, check references, and perhaps suggest a trail period, to see how you work together before you commit to contracts. The last thing you need is a surprise from a business partner or spouse.

Tarot Card: Three of Cups Friendship, celebration, enjoying social network, team spirit, abundance and healing, putting trust in others, celebratory rituals, sharing happy feelings.

Sagittarius: Here come big changes!, But never more so than this May, under the influence of the surprise planet, Uranus. Everyone will feel a shift in everyday life, but in different ways. Work, projects and health benefit, the period of chaos and disruption of the last two and half years is coming to a close and you’ll feel lighter and more positive than you have for a long while. Feelings of confidence and security are growing, you may be attracted to some charitable works and creativity blossoms too. Your psyche urges you to ‘speak out’, this is not a time to blend in but to step forward.

Tarot Card: Page of Cups Sensitivity, intimacy, romantic feelings, trusting your intuition, creative idea’s, a young lover, a light hearted flirtatious admirer, being able to forgive, social activities.

Capricorn: Capricorns may over the past years been concerned with home, property, and family matters. Some Capricorns may have moved house multiple times. You’ve experienced many challenges regarding your living environment – you may have struggled with finances to do with your home. This disruption has taught you to be adaptable and flexible. Uranus now departs from your home sector in May, and Saturn pops in for a three year stay. Uranus shifts into the area concerned with relationship, children and creativity (which will bloom over the next few years). Good news! New energy springs into your relationship or you meet someone new out of the blue! You have the ability ti turn a hobby into a thriving profession.

Tarot Card: The Hanged Man Transition, readjustment, limbo, paradox. Bored but anticipating progress, static relationship, seeing life from a different angle, preparation for future success, changing priorities. Patience.

Aquarius: Jupiter appears now giving you the opportunity for luck and advancement in finances and career, this May the planets are making a very harmonious line up just for you! Career and finances both receive a boost. Creativity and strategy are highlighted, logical and tactical thinking will pay off. You may experience some competition this month but it is ‘healthy competition’ and will inspire rather than hinder you.

Tarot Card: The Tower External disruption, unexpected events, revelation. Breakdown of the old to herald the new, learning to adapt, suddenly seeing the truth of a matter, unexpected challenges, chaos, having a change in fortune,.

Pisces: This month sees a lightening of a load that began in 2010. You’ve faced so many difficulties for months, and in some cases, even years. These are about to fade as a new energy begins in May. Surprises and unexpected financial challenges – often coming out of the blue – have not been good surprises, you’ve experienced multiples of that type. It may be so that you likely made more money than you ever imagined since 2010, you also might have been challenged with larger expenses and taxes than you expected. It is crucial that you remember you had the most challenges with the Aries and Libra new and full moons and eclipses, for they light your financial houses. The new moon in Aries was your last clash with Uranus, you have a new fresh start and will feel lighter and more optimistic.

Tarot Card: Nine of Pentacles Accomplishment, refinement, independence, self-reliance, being resourceful, knowing you are in control of a situation, financial and material security, enjoying the finer pleasures of life, an inner sense of security, acting on you own, self-discipline.

By the end of February, no matter your sun sign, we will all be feeling a sense of balance and harmony. It is also the month in which paying particular attention to our relationships, including our relationship with ourselves, will pay off for the next 10 months.

This energy is further enhanced by the Partial Solar Eclipse that falls on the 15th-16th in the sign of Aquarius.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse is assisting us to communicate and express ourselves to our nearest and dearest. In fact, relationships are really going to be highlighted around this Eclipse, so remain open and see where the Universe is guiding you.

February also heralds the Chinese year of the Earth Dog bringing a grounding energy and will facilitating us all with building, manifesting and creating what we want to in our lives.

JANUARY 2018 COSMIC NEWS

& TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

 

First of all, Happy New Year!   I trust you all enjoyed a peaceful and happy Christmas and I wish you peace, health and prosperity in 2018.

January and February are my busiest months as everyone wants an ‘overview’ of the year to come. If you would like to book in for a reading with me, please get in touch sooner rather than later – as bookings are already very busy and my evening sessions are particularly popular.

COSMIC NEWS

There are two full moons in January 2018. The ‘Wolf Moon’ on the night between 1 and 2 January 2018 is a Supermoon in Cancer.

This Full Moon is especially good for Taureans, Cancerians, Virgos, Scorpios, Capricorns and Pisceans, but it’s more challenging for everyone else. The energy can highlight vulnerability.

The following Full Moon is on the 31st. It has no given name, which makes it a Blue Moon. However, this particular Blue Moon will likely look red in some areas, because it will cause a total lunar eclipse, also known as a Blood Moon.

Super Blue Moon eclipse on January 31. The Blue Moon – the second of two full moons in one calendar month – will pass right through the Earth’s shadow, to stage a total eclipse of the moon during the night time hours on January 31, 2018.

 

The blue moon has long been associated with the divine feminine and heightened psychic and intuitive abilities, its influence that we relate to most is that of second chances. As January draws to a close, the blue moon gives you an opportunity to speak your piece before a new month begins. This final burst of lunar energy is definitely worth planning ahead for, too — especially when you consider that February has no full moon at all!

 

The New Year’s Full Moons form an astrological ‘kite’ with Neptune and Mars. Mars then makes a conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio, (for the first time since 1982), also engaged is an encouraging link with the Sun. Prepare for an inspiring month of unique energies!

 

Aries 2018 promises to be a major shift year for you as the planet of chaos, Uranus, leaves your sign having been with you since in 2011. This heralds positive changes and a lot more tranquillity! : In 2018 pressures are there but they are much more manageable … as long as you don’t avoid hard work. For success, focus professionally. Tarot Card: 3 of Cups – Friendship, celebration, team spirit, exuberance. Abundance, social network, making friends, sharing happy feelings, community spirit.

Taurus This year is about change for you. It might feel scary at times but you will be able to make changes much more easily than you have done for years. 2018 could feel a bit like plugging into the mains, energetically speaking! In a nutshell you may experience apparent chaos but this is the year to embrace change and be excited! Tarot Card – 5 of Cups – Emotional confusion, regret, loss, sadness over lost opportunities, a change in priorities and knowing the best is yet to come!

Gemini – The demanding planet Saturn removes from your opposite sign which means a lightening of the load and you may expect some financial gains this year. You’ll find a more positive attitude emerging too. This is particularly important when it comes to money, the more positive your outlook the more abundant you’ll become. Tarot Card – 6 of Wands – New perspective, recovery, travel, moving away from trouble, heading into better times, mental and physical shifts.

Cancer – This is a mixed year in that, while there may well be many magical events, there will also be challenges, mainly from other’s volatility. Make sure you stay centred and find your own inner calm. Tarot Card – The Moon – Trusting your intuition, listening to your ‘inner voice’, creativity wanting to emerge. Don’t allow insecurities to hold you back!

Leo There are several eclipses in 2018 and four of them are either in your sign or your Relationship Area. This is a year to set your intention. Leave the past behind – here is 2018 with the energy to quite literally change your life! The energy of an eclipse is that it can direct you to a new path, assisting you to the authenticity of your life purpose. This process will be eased if you consciously release the past. Tarot Card – The Wheel of Fortune Turning point, destiny, timing. Synchronicity, cycles, change, coincidence. Identifying and generating opportunities for yourself.

Virgo – This year you have a renewed ability to see the good in life and to think positively. Once every decade you encounter a year like this one when your focus is on happiness, so that is what you manifest! Demanding Saturn in your Social Sector could make the year just a little harder to enjoy, however maintaining positivity will bring benefits. Tarot Card – Four of Pentacles – Limiting your viewpoint or trying to hold on to the old ways will not serve you, a fresh approach is needed. Don’t resist change and allow yourself to be generous!

Libra – Since 2011 the maverick planet, Uranus, has been in your opposite sign, making it a challenging period of ups and downs, exciting but tiring too! That cycle finally ends in May 2018. Your challenge this year will be focussed on home and family, which may be a source of tension in 2018. Don’t worry, just set some ground rules and adhere to them. Tarot Card – 8 of Cups – Moving on and changing direction, commitment to new values and exploring a different lifestyle. Leaving behind that which no longer serves you. A journey of self-discovery, starting afresh.

Scorpio – In many respects this is a positive year. Jupiter (associated with ‘luck’) assists you and you can rely on positively expanding your life in many different areas. Remember, you also need to put in the hard graft, do this and you’ll see great results. Tarot Card – 10 of Pentacles – Family solidarity, the good life, wealth, convention, traditional values, security, seeking affluence, spiritual and emotional prosperity, worldly success.

Sagittarius Finally Saturn departed your sign on 22nd December 2017 after an almost 2 year stay. You have been tested to your limits during that time but now that demanding and uncomfortable cycle is finally over. Well done! You survived! This year you’ll feel a lightening of the load and be able to breathe freely again. Now you need to focus on finances, nothing difficult but your awareness and attention will be beneficial. Tarot Card – The Hanged Man –Transition, readjustment, limbo, paradox. Anticipation of progress, seeing life from a different angle, the ability to make a 360 degree turn, preparation for better times, changing priorities.

Capricorn – Your ruler, Saturn, returns to Capricorn for the first time since 1991. This is a time of ‘growing up’, gaining wisdom. It may be a testing year but it will also be constructive. There is an eclipse in your relationship sector so anything could happen! Avoid dramas and maybe make room for new love in your life? Tarot Card – Seven of Cups – Feeling a little overwhelmed with too many options, be organised and you’ll make the right choice. Remember, ‘all that glitters is not necessarily golden’, take a closer look!

Aquarius Projects and career have a healthy ‘once in 12 years’ boost this year. There may well be changes and upheaval in family matters but this is the year not to be distracted but to focus in your direction. The eclipses this year encourage you to pay attention to your wants, goals, needs, desires – be very clear on these and the rest will follow. Tarot Card – The Hierophant – Tradition and education, also a new sense of faith in yourself (and possibly the divine also). Discrimination from wisdom, wisdom from experience, knowing what is right.

Pisces This is a good year to assess friendships. Are your friends ‘there for you’, are you ‘putting up’ with people? It is an ideal time for a reassessment. Be very discerning, this year you can learn a great deal from your friends so make sure you associate with those who are really there for you. Embrace the ‘life – enhancers’, avoid the ‘drains’! Tarot Card – The Lovers – Love, completeness, choice, temptation, commitment. Seeking wholeness, being true to your values, making a choice, knowing what is right and wrong for you personally, feeling drawn to another, wanting union.

I trust you have enjoyed the above and I look forward to reading for you in 2018!

info@rosemaryreadstarot.com 

There is only one Supermoon in 2017 and it occurs on Sunday 3rd December at 3.46pm in the UK. This Full Moon will appear bigger and brighter than any other Full Moon of this year. There is a message with this moon. A message about the end of the challenging ‘Saturn in Sagittarius’ cycle. On the same day, Mercury turns retrograde. This Supermoon is going to feel like the final mile at the end of a long journey, particularly if you have Sagittarius in your chart.

THE END OF SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS

Saturn – the planet associated with challenges, tests, waiting-games, obstacles, lessons – moved into Sagittarius (the sign ruling foreign people and places, travel and immigration) on September 19th 2015 and it does not depart until December 20th, 2017. So, this Supermoon is the end of a long journey. A Full Moon is always significant. It is a moment of truth, the pivotal point. This particular Supermoon will have global influence and is about the way we relate to each other across national, cultural, religious and language boarders – or the way that we usually fail to relate!

You could say that the Supermoon indicates that it’s time to wave this cycle goodbye. This will be a relief for so many of us. It will, however, be a delayed ending because Mercury Retrograde indicates current situations are not entirely over – not just yet – but the intention and emotion will be there, even if the minutiae takes a while to settle down.

In the global arena there is a likelihood that this will be a dramatic time for international relations, issues about borders, passports, residency etc. There is only one Saturn in Sagittarius cycle every 29 years and this Supermoon is a very strong indicator of endings and of change!

I don’t normally post about New Moon activity but the upcoming New Moon in Scorpio is a big deal!

Information about the upcoming INTENSE

 

New Moon in Scorpio

 

UK: November 18, 11.42am

 

This New Moon is powerful. When a New Moon occurs, it influences the astrological situations taking place just after it.

 

The November 2017 New Moon in Scorpio, is clash between the two most combustible planets, Mars and Pluto.

 

Intensifying the flames of Mars and Pluto, these two volatile planets are both strongly associated with Scorpio, the sign in which this New Moon takes place.

 

Mars is the historical ruler of Scorpio and Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio.

 

This is makes for very intense and possibly volatile energies!

 

It is a time to watch your temper and avoid people you know to have a cruel streak.

 

On the positive side, Mars/Pluto’s clash encourages drive (sometimes with a hint of compulsion or obsession).

 

Within intimate love relationships, the energy could be very passionate and ardent.

 

Be aware that the Mars/Pluto combination can ignite violence and even fury – however most people, though feeling the tension, will channel this energy into creativity.

 

If you are in a relationship or situation where there is the possibility of threat or menace, be extra vigilant.

 

Having said all the above, the New Moon is still a tool for manifesting. The Scorpio energies are so intense, that manifesting intentions will be sharper as well.

 

Consider your ambitions and how to make them manifest in ways that will benefit everyone.

 

Here, in brief, is what this New Moon means for you. Read your Rising Sign as well if you know it.

 

Aries – Highlights sex and money

 

Taurus – Focus on your love life

 

Gemini – Pay attention to your daily life

 

Cancer – Regarding romance, children and creativity

 

Leo – Being at home and with family

 

Virgo – About the way you express yourself and regarding close associates and neighbours

 

Libra – Focus on your finances and self-worth

 

Scorpio – This is YOUR New Moon, so your whole life!

 

Sagittarius – Highlights your fears and spirituality

 

Capricorn – About your social life

 

Aquarius – Sheds light on your career

 

Pisces – Matters to do with travel, study and deeper spirituality

 

NOVEMBER 2017 ASTRO NEWS AND TAROT CARD OFF THE MONTH

 

This is a busy month in which the Full Moon takes place in Taurus.

 

Full Moon in Taurus

 

LONDON: November 4, 5.22am

 

New Moon in Scorpio

 

LONDON: November 18, 11.42am

 

MERCURY INTO SAGITTARIUS

 

To begin, Planet of the Mind, Mercury moves into Sagittarius. This happens at least once a year and normally around this time of the year.

 

Essentially, it really is an element of the Christmas season, which is about peace on earth and goodwill to all.

 

Mercury governs the way express ourselves & Sagittarius is the sign that likes to laugh.

 

It’s been another year of serious challenges on the world stage, as we move towards the end of 2017 Mercury is in comedy loving Sagittarius – this lifts the spirits!

 

Also Mercury in Sagittarius is very generous, another great combination for this season. It brings optimism and positive expectations.

 

Mercury’s placement in the skies as it moves through the 12 signs of the zodiac, triggers different parts of each sign’s chart.

 

Mercury deals with communication and it’s about what you are thinking.

 

VENUS INTO SCORPIO

 

The next major astro-event of November is the move of the planet of romance and riches, Venus, into the mysterious sign of Scorpio. Again, this is about an annual event.

 

The move of Venus into Scorpio beside the move of Mercury into Sagittarius means we are going to experience some total contrasts.

 

While Mercury in Sagittarius is lighthearted, full of laughter and fun, and somewhat adventurous, Venus in Scorpio is profound, shadowy and perhaps even a little ‘unusually complicated’.

 

Bear in mind that Venus is the planet of love, intimacy and relating, while Scorpio is arguably the most profound sign of the zodiac; also the most obsessive and compulsive.

 

Venus in Scorpio triggers love and passion with perhaps even a hint of paranoia thrown in!

 

We all have Scorpio in our charts somewhere, we all have the 12 signs in our charts.

 

OVERVIEW & TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

That’s an overview for Venus this November – here are some specifics.

 

Overall the Venus action this month is very positive about love and money issues. Venus covers both of these aspects of life. So when Venus is happy, we are happier too!

 

BIG VENUS DATES FOR YOUR NOVEMBER DIARY:

 

Friday November 3 – Venus sextiles Saturn – good for commitments and stability regarding love and money, deals and agreements of contracts including marriage contracts.

 

Saturday November 4 – Today’s Venus energies are somewhat chaotic, there could be some radical changes, but not if your love/money situation is firmly grounded

 

Tuesday November 7 – Venus moves into Scorpio

 

Monday November 13 – Venus meets Jupiter for their once-a-year interaction. Today is one of the most promising times for romance and riches this year…

 

Thursday November 16 – Venus is connecting harmoniously with Neptune – this highlights romantic elements and makes tonight an ideal date night.

 

Tuesday November 21 – Venus connects harmoniously with passionate Pluto – extreme crushes and passionate love affairs are possible. Great date for both singles and couples.

 

Sunday 26 November – Venus/Chiron – it is link helps if there have been any upsets to do with love or money, it starts the healing process, including healing of historic wounds.

 

THEN WE GET SOME OF THE BIG ASTROLOGICAL GUNS PROMISING MASSIVE CHANGE…

 

On November 11 we get the biggest astrological event of the month; a harmonious connection between slow-moving Saturn and Uranus. The reason why this is important is simple. The moving planets, Saturn and Uranus are both much slower moving than Mercury and Mars. So when planets such as Saturn and Uranus connect, it’s important news!

 

Here is a bit about what this means:

 

Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius – this means Capricorns, Cancerians, Geminis and Sagittarius will all be very aware of this link, and anyone with any of those as rising signs.

 

Uranus is in of Aries, so all Aries, Libran and Aquarians and anyone with any of those signs rising will also be affected.

 

How does the connection between Saturn and Uranus play out? It’s remarkable; Saturn is the heavy and ponderous planet, while Uranus is the electric flash of unpredictability.

 

This combination suggests:

 

  1. This is a very good time to make positive changes in your life. Don’t wait for the 2018. Matters will run smoothly.
  2. You can be confident and calm as you map out the changes you want to make in your life
  3. November is also a very good time to begin something new, to experiment. Creative self-expression is well starred.
  4. Frequently it’s tough to implement new ways of doing things but now you should find it’s relatively effortless.
  5. In particular regarding work, it’s a wonderful time for change and many will feel now as though all their hard work in the past two years is finally paying off.

 

So there you have it! Novembers Astro News and Card of the Month

 

Don’t forget: I am available for Christmas and New Year parties. I‘m already taking bookings for my January ‘overview of the year to come’ Clairvoyant Tarot Readings!

 

 

 

 

ASTRO NEWS FOR OCTOBER

 

A little late this month, I have been away on a small Mediterranean island idyll, an unspoilt and well kept secret – bliss!

 

 

The Full Moon in Aries on Thursday October 5th is going to be a powerful full moon and a conjunction between Venus and Mars signals the beginning of a new romantic cycle and a time for self-assessment.

Under the Aries Full Moon ask yourself honestly if you have found yourself a little short-tempered lately.
The fiery energy of the Full Moon in Aries is an ideal time of the year to be totally honest with yourself about your temperament. Any time is a good time for self-improvement!

Aries is the infant of the zodiac – the Full Moon in this sign highlights our more childish behaviour.

Aries energy can be very unsubtle. It reminds us of how we ought to behave, and encourages self-improvement.

 

Aries:

 

Compromise and cooperation will work for you this month. Professional growth is supported. Financial prospects are positive. Jupiter helps with romance if you are a single. Be aware of your health and stress levels.

 

Tarot Card of the Month: 9 of Cups – Security, wish fulfilment, pleasure, and emotional satisfaction. Enjoying the simple pleasures of life, pleased with what you have achieved. Contentment and counting your blessings. Also a great time for getting more organised (do the filing)!

 

 

Taurus:

 

Your spiritual side will emerge in October 2017. Jupiter and Neptune are assisting your career. Finances are stable and love relationships are possibly challenging.

 

Tarot Card of the Month: 6 of Swords – This is known as the ultimate travel card, however, the journey may be internal, taking you from some inner turmoil to a calmer way of being. It also suggests ‘recovery’ from something, a new perspective and moving away from obstacles, leaving the past behind and gaining more positivity.

 

 

Gemini:

 

Mercury will make Gemini people more aware of their spiritual selves in October 2017. If unemployed, your job prospects receive a boost. The Solar eclipse will bring challenges in your love life. The Moon affects your financial journey bringing small irregularities. You’ll feel well and energised this month.

 

Tarot Card of the Month: Queen of Wands – a bubbly outgoing woman with a very strong ability to read people. She is charismatic and creative, attractive, optimistic, up beat and confident. You’ll be displaying these qualities in October.

AUGUST 2017 ASTRO NEWS & TAROT CARD OF THE MONTH

 

The solar eclipse on Monday August 21, 2017 is at 29° Leo. The solar eclipse August 2017 astrology points to bold, confident changes leading to long term success.

Determined and sustained effort will bring the growth and happiness you desire.

New moon August 2017 aligns with the major fixed star Regulus to give ambition and adventure. A positive link to Uranus makes this a six-month eclipse phase of anticipation and excitement.

New Moon Solar Eclipse Meaning

Like any new moon, a solar eclipse represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. An eclipse cycle of six months not a new moon cycle of four weeks. The strongest and most important aspect in astrology is the Sun in conjunction with the Moon.  It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future.

Old habits, behaviours and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start by writing a to-do list on a blank sheet of paper.

This solar eclipse will compliment themes found in the 7th August Lunar Eclipse.  Together they act as an eclipse phase which lasts until the January 2018 lunar eclipse.

CANCARIAN NEW MOON

SATURDAY 24th JUNE 2017

 

Here are some matters to meditate on, or give attention to during this New Moon. It is also a great time to set your intentions and make affirmations for manifestation in the next four weeks

Family time – make an effort to spend time with those who mean the most to you, family or friends who feel like family.

Insecurity – A Cancerian New Moon can highlight insecurities – so if you want to become more self-aware and live consciously, this is the time to assess yourself and see if you need to self nurture and build up confidence and self-belief.

Nurture yourself and others – The Cancerian energy is very much about being cosy and looking after yourself and others, be it with social gatherings, providing delicious food or by pampering yourself having a massage, facial, or indulging in lovely expensive bath oil for example.

Review your goals – We are now half-through 2017. How many of the goals you set for yourself at the start of the year have been achieved?

Bathe – Cancerian energy loves water! If you can’t swim in the sea, or a river, lake or pool, do honour the Cancerian energy with a soak in the bath, Jacuzzi or or similar. See what ideas come to you as you relax.

Here are New Moon times around the world

 JUNE 2017 ASTRO NEWS

 

FIRST QUARTER MOON IN VIRGO: 1st June sees the Moon in Virgo. And this is what it’s good for:

◗ Good for… Releasing addictions, creating order and new routines in your life.

◗ Not so good for… Being wild and reckless
◗ Do… Be helpful.

◗ Don’t… Be too critical.

 Scroll down for more about your sign.

 The emergence of powerful planetary influences comes into play this month as Mercury from the 7th transits through its ruling sign of Gemini until the 21st.

On the 18th Mercury opposes Saturn a combination that can bring confusion in transport and technology but also great depth in collective thinking.

The big news that will dominate the astrological news is Jupiter going direct in Libra on the 10th; this is especially good for the UK as it moves through the placement of a countries persona.

The planet Venus on the 6thmoves into its rulership of Taurus adding economic stability for the rest of the month and a general feeling of security.

On the 9th we have a Full Moon at 18 degrees in Sagittarius ‘A man’s face painted with grotesque scrolls and surrounded by a mass of tangled hair’ it is the degree of ‘disorder’.

This Full Moon is heavily affecting the USA’s natal chart and therefore expects some home truths coming up in the collective consciousness.

GOOD NEWS! For anyone who has been up against it lately June falls into the category of ‘smooth sailing’.

Overall, the middle of the year looks as though it will work out quite pleasantly for most of the signs.

Anything to do with romance and finance seems to be well-aspected this month, thanks to the movement of the planet Venus through Aries and into Taurus.

Whether you’re single or attached, or just in something complicated, expect an improvement.

Pamper yourself, feel fabulous and go out in to the world and see what you find! If you are long-married and you know you need to revive the spark, this is great month for it.

If you’re single and looking, the energies this month are great for meeting someone new.

The best dates for relationships (any kind) this month are June 1, 2, 9, 19 and 23. They are great for being with your partner or a friend or your family. They are days when relating to people should flow more smoothly.

Do watch out on June 2 though if you’re in a tense relationship with someone – things could be challenging.

 

FULL MOON

The world might be a challenging place in 2017, but this months Full Moon will hopefully bring lighter energies. It takes place in adventurous sign of Sagittarius, and is closely followed by a link between the zodiac’s lovers Venus and Mars.

This augurs very well, especially since Full Moons can go either way, from super fun to super intense and even plain stressful.

New Moon in Cancer

LONDON: June 24, 3.30am

WHERE IS THE FOCUS?

The Sun: this month, the Sun will spend most of its time in the sign of Gemini. Here’s what that means for you. If you know where the Sun is, you know where your focus is likely to be. (It’s also worth reading your Rising Sign if you know it).

AND WHAT ABOUT LOVE?

Regarding your love prospects, you need to look at the love planet Venus. This month she will spend most of her time in the Earth sign of Taurus. In a nutshell, this is

 

  1. Really good news for Earth and Water signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorns, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisceans)

 

  1. Possibly less good exciting or even a tad more challenging for Fire and Air signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarians, Geminis, Librans and Aquarians)

 

The deal is that for the signs listed under 1 above, Venus will be making harmonious and sweet contacts.

 

For the signs listed under 2, there could be relationship clashes to contend with.

 

However don’t be alarmed! A little Venus clash can often be just what you need to sort through an issue with a partner or ex. It can also be a time of sorting things through with a family member or friend.

 

Venus is about relating. If things have been a little uncivil with someone, it’s a time to make up, whether it’s a question of making up and moving on or making up and reconciling.

MORE ABOUT THIS MONTH FOR YOU

ARIES: It is now extra possible to make changes in your personal life and on the home front as the New Moon lights up your Home Zone, and Mercury and Mars power through the same part of your chart. Anything to do with your home or domestic life can be renewed now, from doing up your house, to moving, to sorting things out after a family upset or moving on after a break up of some kind.

The energetic shift that Venus brought to the rams last month has certainly quietened them down, but from the 5th Mars enters Cancer and brings all those emotions boiling up to the surface. How the Aries handle this month is going to be down to their own emotional ties with family and close friends. This could bring out a closeness that has never been seen before or an aggravated outburst that comes from nowhere.

Tarot Card: 10 of Cups Harmony, joyousness and contentment in home and family matters, abundance of good emotion, feeling at one with life, the start of anew positive cycle

TAURUS: A new financial dynamic is aspected for you this month. Forget about your financial past and decide what you want from now on. Abundant Venus in your sign and the Full Moon across your Cash Zones make now the time for you to work out at least a 6 – month but better yet a 12-month or even 5-year financial plan. Venus enters your party from the 6th transiting in Taurus, a combination that exudes charm and self-indulgence, if that’s your cup of tea, which for the majority of the bulls it is. However things also speed up in the financial sector of your chart, your ability to pick two separate directions in income is an opportunity that presents itself over the next four weeks.

Tarot Card: Page of Cups Trusting you intuition, creative ideas, forgiveness, love affair, sensitivity, romance!

GEMINI: The Full Moon in your Love Zone this month means it’s time to move on from any relationships that are not working out. The way to build stronger relationships now is to believe in yourself more. If you expect to be well-treated, you are far more likely to be well-treated. The general speed of the month increases especially from the 7th as Mercury transits your sign helping you to multi task your way through life, something the twins are familiar with. On the 9th we have a full moon in the relationship area of your chart, this can help to illuminate any issues that have been hidden in the past, embrace this energy rather than run away from it, you could get a real sense of liberation.

Tarot Card: The Fool Pure and un-corrupt, innocent, the eternal optimist, ready to leap into anything, leap of faith, considered risk, adventure, spontaneity.

CANCER: This month is hectic, with massive potential. Ask yourself “where do I want to go from here?” Not being intentionally bossy, but the New Moon and Mars in your sign is giving you powers, which you need to use. Chase your dreams! The Summer Solstice is on the 21st June when the Sun transits into the zodiac sign of Cancer. Your month has a certain heightened frequency, meaning your sensitivity to your environments is the key to unlocking new aspects in your personality. The New Moon in your own sign on the 24th helps to emotionally move away from any negative on-going issues.

Tarot card: 3 of Wands Foresight, expansion, exploration, contemplation. Awareness of your intentions, seeing new adventure, sure of your path, knowing your power, a sense of vocation.

LEO: June is a great time to take time out and just meditate and contemplate and eat healthily. The Sun is in the darkest part of your chart – the less you do socially, the happier you’re likely to be. This is a month-long phase and offers you a chance to regroup energetically. As tantalising as it is to go over the top it’s even better sometimes when we know what our limits are and stay within those boundaries. This is the mantra for you Leo’s this month as the pendulum swings between elation and the practical, the trick is trying to get somewhere in the middle of the two, and if there is one sign that can do this, it’s you.

Tarot Card: The Hierophant Conforming, tradition, ceremony, teaching, studying higher values, discrimination from knowledge, knowing how to act appropriately.

VIRGO: If you want to move house, town or even country, redecorate or renovate your home or to change who you live with, you have celestial support. If life at home has been challenging, June should mark the start of the end of the difficulty. Whatever you want, do make a wish as soon as you wake up on June 24! There is a lot of activity this month as the sun shines on the travel sector of your chart, restless with a need to escape from the mundane could see you being rather impulsive. On the 7th Mercury moves into Gemini bringing more questions and less answers in terms of your career, maybe it’s best just to focus on what needs to be done.

Tarot Card: 5 of Swords Be yourself! Ignore those who impose their opinions upon you, accept your limitations and go for reconciliation.

LIBRA: It’s exciting for you professionally now, as success planet Mars makes a once-every-two-years appearance in your Career Zone and the New Moon also lights up the same part of your chart. If you’re ambitious, this is a great time to go for it! If you’re not, it’s still a good time to explore your career options. There is some good news Librans, Jupiter which since February has being going retrograde finally moves forward on the 10th of June in your own sign. Plans that have stagnated over the last four months can finally begin to materialise, the only question is can you handle the amount of opportunities that are going to come your way?

Tarot Card: Death Don’t be alarmed! Death means the death of the old way of doing things, not literal death. It is akin to a snake shedding it’s skin, you are still you, but leaving behind what is no longer needed on board. It marks the end of an old cycle, letting go of the past and being true to yourself, accepting the cycles of change,

SCORPIO: There have been some very important lessons about money for you in the past few years as Saturn has rolled his way through your one of your two Cash Zones. Now the Full Moon over both Cash Zones hints at either you have learned your lessons, which are going to pay off… or, tediously, there are more lessons to come. From the 6th Venus moves into the partnership area of your chart, this enables you to clear up any emotional mess that occurred from last month. There is a cathartic energy about June for Scorpio allowing you to become much more in tune with your immediate environment. This is intensified from the 10th as Jupiter moves direct in your solar 12th house.

Tarot Card: 2 of Wands Achievement, courage, personal power. Persuading other of your talents, having the courage to prove your point. Making your mark on the world, expansion, new horizons, being inventive, new ideas.

SAGITTARIUS: The Full Moon in your sign marks the beginning of the end of a phase. But don’t panic! It’s the beginning of the end of what has been for many Sagittarians, a long and arduous cycle. Think about what the past two years have taught you – literally make a list and start to live your life, from now, acting on those important lessons. The Sun is in your opposite until the 21st, the light is directed towards relationships and how to get the best out of them. With the planet Saturn clashing with the Sun, you just might feel restricted by other people’s expectations of you, time to make a hasty retreat.

Tarot Card: 4 of Cups Doubt, hesitation, introspection, having a ‘jaded pallet’ withdrawal and self doubt, contemplation for healing purposes.

CAPRICORN: There are new possibilities for you romantically as the June New Moon lights up your Love Zone and Mars moves into the same part of your chart after a two-year absence. Work on sorting through issues with the important people in your life, but careful not to come across as aggressive. Also, a very good time to meet someone new. It’s back to work for most of you, as you regain your career stride with energy and vigour that you now have at your disposal. These next four weeks can bring about change in your daily routine and more importantly your general attitude to life, these pearls of wisdom can be given to others, a role that the Capricorn loves to play – the master.

Tarot Card: 7 of Wands Gaining advantage, sticking to your guns, confident to say ‘no’, being resolute, you are on ‘the high ground’.

AQUARIUS: Use this month to make some changes to your daily routines so that you feel better and better about yourself. Whether it’s going to bed earlier, or getting up earlier and doing some stretching or exercise, changing your diet or doing something else you know you need to do, make the changes now and they’ll probably stick. But also pace yourself. There is a playful tone to these next four weeks, social events, group gatherings, everything that the Aquarius likes. The trouble of course is that you can’t be in two places at once, and therefore you have to be careful with what you promise others, try to limit your movements; it will make life a lot easier in the long run.

Tarot Card: 2 of Cups Attraction, relationship, connection, partnership, romantic love, understanding, harmony, cooperation, forgiveness and reconciliation.

PISCES: There could be some tension between your home and working life now as the Full Moon straddles your Home and Career Zones. Diffuse this tension by seeking a balance between your professional life and your need to actually ‘have a life’. Yes you may be under pressure but you need to let off steam too. Start having more fun. Make it your mission! Your traditional ruler Jupiter moves direct on the 10th helping you to release any blocked energies that have been delaying projects over the last four months. It important to respond to the shift in the planets, this is a time to think big, be brave and to make sure that you tell everybody about your new found plans, I’m sure others will benefit from your dreams.

Tarot Card: 6 of Swords New perspective, recovery, travel. Moving away from trouble, heading into better times, getting over difficulties, mental or physical journey. Leaving the past behind, being more positive about life.

MAY Astro-Tarot News

1st of May saw the Ancient Pagan Festival of Beltane. A time to celebrate Spring turning to Summer, a blessing for fruitfulness and abundance from the animals and the land.

On 3rd May, Mercury turns direct before conjuncting Uranus again.

At the beginning of the year, the astrological setup was dominated by Jupiter, the planet of luck opposing Uranus, the planet of surprises.

While this remains the year’s defining Astro news, another alignment was also forming between Saturn and Uranus. In May, for the penultimate time until 2047, this alignment forms again.

This cosmic configuration will help us all to think on about a fundamental life restructuring process, that if implemented this year, will benefit us for years to come.

APRIL ASTRO INFO

In the coming weeks I will be posting information about my Tarot Course. For now, here is the April Astro – tarot overview.

We have had quiet a few rare cosmic events in this early part of the year, here are a few more!

JUST FOR YOU: Scroll down to find Astro news and a Tarot Card of the Month for your sign:

11 April: The April ‘Pink Moon’

The term comes from the moss pink herb, or wild ground phlox flower, which is widespread by spring. Other names for this particular orb include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon or the Full Fish Moon.

So you shouldn’t necessarily expect it to look pink!

In 2017, the Pink Moon should become visible at 6.08am on April 11.

VENUS The planet of finance and romance, Venus has been reversing. Now as she starts to move forwards again, it’s time to re-evaluate your romantic and financial futures. The planet of love and relationships has been in a rare retrograde cycle. As of April 15, that cycle is over.

Regardless of who you are or what your star sign is, relationships that have been under strain for the past few months should start to move forwards again in April.

When Venus is retrograde, we had the opportunity to re-evaluate what really matters. Who are your real friends, are you being a good or a bad friend? Are you just ‘collecting people’ or making real connections?

Use the first two weeks of April to work on your most important relationships. If you need to forgive someone, just do it. There could be very important lessons within romantic, friendship or professional scenarios. Are you being too clingy? Are you in the relationship for the right reasons? Or do you really care for someone and you need to tell them so more often?

Be aware that Venus will clash with Saturn on April 21, which is challenging. Issues of self-esteem can arise under this energetic pairing. Prepare for a slightly ‘wobbly’ day.

MERCURY Speaking of retrogrades, Mercury, the communications planet, starts to go into a reverse cycle this month, too. This time around, it will be in the sign of Taurus, starting on April 10.

That makes the first 10 days of April time to back up your computers, sort out your travel plans and sign any contracts you would like to have set in stone.

After that, we are in a Mercury retrograde phase which means it’s time to rethink, revisit and revise everything!

 HERE IS WHERE MERCURY RETROGRADE IS TAKING PLACE FOR YOU THIS TIME AROUND:

If you haven’t backed up your computer files or your digital photos in a while, this is an ideal time to do it. Remember, Mercury is the trickster of the zodiac…! This cycle highlights the possibility of Missed phone calls, emails and texts accidentally sent to the wrong person and botched rendez vous are possible.

However, there is also the chance to rethink a very Important Issue in your life. If you’re signing an agreement, be SURE both parties are in agreement.

The key with Mercury retrograde is always to let the cycle unfold without making any major decisions, if you can. Mercury retrograde usually leads to more information being sent your way so it’s best to way and see what transpires before you act.

The good news is that as Mercury goes backwards, it’s a really good time to say sorry or bring up something from the past that needs to be talked through. If you to take back something you said, or indeed if you want to go back to somewhere from your past, that is all good under Mercury retrograde.

 THE FULL MOONLONDON: April 11, 7.08am

 The Full Moon will be especially important to celebrate this month because it’s taking place post the Venus retrograde and while Mercury is retrograde. In other words, we can move on from the past, from part upsets in relationships and from relationships we no longer even want to be a part of.

This is a ‘Pink Full Moon’ The term comes from the moss pink herb, or wild ground phlox flower, which is widespread by spring.  Other names for this particular orb include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon or the Full Fish Moon.So you shouldn’t necessarily expect it to look pink!

In 2017, the Pink Moon should become visible at 6.08am on April 11.

Thursday March 30

 

Here is some news about a major planetary pairing. I have also picked a Tarot card for today – The Lovers, affiliated to Gemini, very apt.

 

The Lovers:

 

Think about what you mean by ‘love’ and take responsibility for your choices. The card asks you to be more aware of who you are and what values you place on love relationships. Learn to love yourself first, forgiveness, compassion and understanding are indicated. Love is the only thing you can give to others in abundance but cannot command in return.

 

GREAT CHANGES ARE POSSIBLE NOW!

 

CRESCENT MOON INTO GEMINI: We have just had New Moon. Now there is a major meeting between two planetary giants, Jupiter and Pluto.

 

This is significant for us all, no matter our Sun Sign. If you need to make profound changed in your life, now is the time!

 

The New Moon in Aries heralds the start of the New Lunar Cycle, as Aries is the first sign of the zodiac.

 

Indeed, Jupiter and Pluto both signal a real chance for transformation.

 

Be certain that you are VERY CLEAR about what you want! The clearer you are about what you want, the more you think about it and day-dream about it and write it down and visualize it, the more likely you are to manifest it.

 

Jupiter: Rules Sagittarius & Pisces

 

Was once ruler of the Gods. Expanding intellectual and philosophical understanding in the world. Optimism, justice, loyalty and new learning are all attributes of this planet.

 

Influences expansion, optimism, good fortune, faith, philosophy, hope, knowledge, excess, abundance, luck, travel, inflation, creative visualization, largesse, generosity, conscience.

 

Pluto: Rules Scorpio

 

Pluto was the God who rules the underworld. It highlights challenges, particularly those from the darker side of our own natures! It draws our attention to the laws of Karma.

 

Influences power, transformation, birth-death-rebirth, regeneration, elimination, taboo, pollution, transmutation, subversion, obsession, compulsion, the unconscious mind, religious conversation, psychoanalysis.

 

March 28

Today I am giving a brief overview of the cosmic influences we can expect from now and to the end of April.
