Hard Astrology Aspects: You Choose How To Respond!

Hard Astrology Aspects: You Choose How To Respond!

I sometimes feel that I am a little Pollyanna like with Astrology compared to others. My general optimism comes partly from four planets in Sagittarius but I DO have plenty in my chart to dampen that and I DO have my ‘bad’ days. But my belief is that it’s all about how we respond and react to the energies. I have been through enough had aspects in my life to KNOW that things get tough. But I also know that nothing lasts and we get to choose whether to sink into despair or to look at the bleak side. Pluto brings death and transformation of all kinds and Uranus brings revolution and sudden shocks and change. These two are the slowest of planets and, therefore, some people are lucky enough not to have too many of these transits, especially the conjunctions (where the planet crosses the same point that a planet in your birth chart is at). But, because of the make up of my chart, I have had BOTH planets cross almost every planet and luminary (Sun/Moon) in my chart. So I get it. I have been through almost every hard aspect possible in my 55 years. I lost my Dad and gave birth to my eldest daughter under my Pluto square aspect. I went through the deepest depression of my life as Pluto crossed my Ascendant and my Saturn (they are very close together) but I also went through the time of greatest growth as I faced the lessons Pluto was asking me to. On both occasions! And the aspects to my own chart in mid 1989...
After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

After the Annus Horriblis: Getting The Message!

Wow, wow wow is all I can say. Repeatedly. What a year. I feel a bit like the Queen of England when I say what an annus horriblis (horrible year) it was! I’m English though so I can get away with it. And I am the Queen of my own world. So, you know. Or more like horrible 18 months or two year even! Or even three years for some parts of it! Not all bad of course but, man, that Uranus/Pluto square was tough. And transformational. And bumpy. And shocking in some ways. It’s not completely over yet. Uranus and Pluto will pull apart but then Uranus will turn retrograde at the end of July and by January they will only be a degree apart again. But the effects are fading. It’s time to assimilate all the changes and the lessons. And, as Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, squares Pluto tomorrow, the 7th April, and conjuncts Uranus in Aries the next day before going cazimi (into the heart of the Sun, ie exactly conjunct) with the Sun on Thursday, April 9th. And Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance and good fortune is trining all this and turns direct on Wednesday April 8th when the Moon is in Jupiter ruled Sagittarius! What does all this mean? BIG forward movement. BIG ideas. BIG messages. BIG voice. BIG firey energy. And all of it forming a Grand Trine to my Jupiter and then Sun in Sagittarius in my twelth house. Can I just say yummy and I am ready for this. It’s time to speak. You have been looking at...

Tough Times Require Unconditional Love

The next few weeks are going to be tough. And awesome. And Transformational. But not easy.   Either you or someone you know is being deeply affected. Many are in pain of one kind or another. But all will be well. If we learn the lessons we are being called to learn This is what we have coming up and building already. I will mention them all and then just talk about general energies because it’s almost too much to deal with in a blog post. Well not almost. It is! We have a big cluster of energies in Aries: Venus, Mars, Uranus and South Node, congregating around the middle of the sign. First Venus and then Mars will conjoin the nodal axis (our past and our future). Underlying everything we have the last exact conjunction of Uranus/Pluto on Mar 16 at 15 degrees (middle of signs). So Venus will join this square on March 4 followed by Mars on Mar 11. Saturn turns retro on Mar 14 (and is in square to Neptune in Pisces). Mercury moves into Pisces on Mar 12, joins Neptune on Mar 18 and the Sun joins with Chiron in Pisces on Mar 8. And we have Eclipse season which is always heightened. A Solar Eclipse at the very. very last degree of the zodiac on Mar 20 and all this finishes up with a Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees of Libra on April 4. There is even more to this but are you already going WOW!? This is it lovelies. We have been building to this since 2012. And as a collective, since...
