New loves, fresh perspectives

What has stopped you in the past?

Go sideways!

With Neptune retrograde in its ruling house in your chart you will feel the pull to explore Neptune’s depths more than almost any other sign – aside from Pisces that is. If we are going to sail into uncharted waters we need to know where we have come from and also where we intend to end up. Take Columbus for example. His boss the Queen decides she wants Indian take-out. Columbus duly sets sail in the good ship Deliveroo but in the opposite direction to the one he should have headed in. Well, it didn’t quite go down like that but you can see where I am coming from here – and going to. We’re on the brink of a massive retrograde cycle which begins now and which will include Mars your ruler as of next week. We will see six planets retrograde all at the same time over the following months. The purpose of retrogrades aside from Mercury-induced chaos is to have us looking back at our past in specific areas in order not to repeat it. Neptune particularly links us to our past, hidden truths and past lives – this one and all others. And future lives too. Fix the past – or at least see why things were, you don’t have to repeat it.

Where do you want to go from here? Look back and see what stopped you from getting there up until now. That’s your starting point. Get clear about the direction you need to move in. The Sun in your 4th and the sign of Cancer points to a sideways shift or view needed in order to accomplish this. Watch the film Sideways. It’s how we store wine. Or used to. The reason – the corks before the cork shortage hit. Reasons to watch the film aside from stellar performances? Two characters stuck on a spin cycle of the past and refusing to budge. Now you get it. Ruler Mars in your 11th opposes Venus in your romance zone on the same day the Sun arrives in your 4th. Something new that escapes the shadow of the past could  be on its way when it comes to meeting that new lover or someone who can have a big impact on your future. Look at the past from a fresh angle, and step sideways away from any patterns that imprison you there.

monthly horoscope

Re-state your intentions

Be the love you want to see in your life

Reinvent the dream

Deep feelings are revealed and emotional insights follow thanks to a rippling alignment between Venus in your 4th and Jupiter and Neptune in your 8th and 12th respectively. If something has not been clear – perhaps someone’s intentions or you have been seeking the truth in a situation, you will discover it now. Others could discover a secret – a secret admirer perhaps or just uncover an answer that you seek. Intuition and the creative muse provides you with the solutions you seek. These may be intangible forces but they are powerful ones when it comes to sculpting your wishes and desires and making them come alive now. Follow these especially when it comes to goals around romance and what you love to do or dream of doing – either professionally or as a hobby. Venus’s entry into your 5th from the 13th puts you in the spotlight in some way. Be ready to receive attention so ensure you are looking and feeling your best. It’s all about attraction now and the rule is: You radiate – you attract back in kind. Stand out. Spread the joy. Show your passion. And once Mercury enters here on the 29th – share your ideas. Business matters are favoured as well as love or at the very least a flirtation or two. Lost for words? Not likely now.

This month’s new Moon appears in your 3rd of Gemini – Mercury’s ruling house and sign. Although this is clearly not your birthday, this is a new Moon which always marks one of those times of the year where we can re-set our intentions for the rest of it. It’s another point where we can begin again if we need to. Look back over the past three months since your birthday and review your progress to date. Do you need to course-correct or have your priorities changed? If so, adjust. If not – re-commit to your path and inject it with fresh ideas as you’ll have those to spare now. This favours all new ventures and business dealings. So apply for that job or connect to those customers.

Looking at how the past has created the place and circumstances you currently inhabit and crafting decisions honed by past experiences and future wishes is going to be favoured by the major retrograde cycle we are all about to enter. Neptune begins this heading backwards in your 12th from the 19th. Recapture your imaginative dreams and perhaps see them in a new light as ways to answer your desire for soul expression. Ruler Mars is about to make an extremely rare retrograde between the 26th and the end of August in your 11th of friends, contacts and yes – goals and dreams. Mine your contacts, reconnect with people from your past and above all, take your time. Mars retro in here may put you into temporary hermit mode. If so, use this time to review and revisit what it is you wish to achieve, experience or do and craft a fresh strategy. This is your house of innovation and invention. Mars retrograde gives you the power to plan – and then act.

Powerful alignments in your 10th of career between Saturn who rules this house and the full Moon in here on the 28th which oppose the Sun in your 4th from the 21st, unlock career doors for you. Career matters could come to a head with the final stages of a key project or plan. It all impacts on your long term security and home life. Look forward into the future to where you need to be as opposed to want to be. The smart money says you can combine both of these now. Big decisions await you that will determine your path – not just for this year, but for several more to come.

In a nutshell: Time to go where those emotions want to take you. Express your passion and that vibe you send out attracts back in kind. Simply put – be what you want to attract this June, Aries!

Aries 2018 

HOLY MOLY! The Astrology of 2018 is going to be life changing! Since 2011, Uranus, the rebellious, unpredictable, genius has been in your sign. No doubt your life has had a revolution over the past seven years. On top of that, your world may have been plagued by instability and wild times. Hopefully, by now, you realise that there has been deeper meaning and opportunity in all the crazy events? Whatever you thought of as stable seven years ago has long since transformed. Mr Electric is not quite finished with you yet, so make the most of it, and awaken your genius within. Be the individual that you are and push your originality, especially in the first few weeks of this year.

2018 Astrology kicks off with a helping hand as Uranus turns direct on the 2nd giving you a final chance to break free from any chains that still hold you. With Mars your ruler joining forces with lucky Jupiter on the 7th in your subconscious shadow side, you are overcoming issues of powerlessness and grabbing the reins. Be careful of not chucking yourself into 2018 by being too dominant. When you seize command, make sure you do it honourably. Jupiter is in your power zone until November 2018 and is bringing you benefits (as long as you face your shadow side) and could turn your finances around. Jupiter is helping you deal with sexuality issues and helping you unleash your inner lover. Others find you compelling and magnetic. In fact, much of 2018 is about you coming into your sexual and financial power as well as facing and letting go of fear.

When Uranus enters Taurus on the 15th May, he brings a revolution to your security and finance. The good news is that it may be that he delivers a surprising success. Dramatic events force you to use your unparalleled flare while taking risks to succeed. You can also have extraordinary achievements with anything technology based. So write the blog, create the app and dare to do and allow your inner wizard out to play.

Uranus retrograde does nip back into your sign in November 2018 until March 2019. However, when he exits once more, the personal revolution that has taken place for you is now well and truly over as he takes up his usual seven-year stint in your 2nd. 2018 gives you a taster of what’s to come from 2019. Having said that you’re more equipped to handle whatever is thrown at you, as you’ve got used to his erratic ways. Keep your wits about you and expect the unexpected and think outside the crate!

Saturn the serious has already shifted signs and gone into his bosom buddy Capricorn. I expect we will see some shady goings on in the world of finance and a leaning towards conservative values. The old world order is about to change and with it your own attitude to your career and your reputation. I’m not saying you are going to become a part of the establishment or don a hipster suit to work, but you are going to get more serious about what you want to achieve.

In 2017 you lived a pretty free and bohemian existence, 2018 turns your attention to work and structure. Arrangements that are not working will be broken down. 2018 is not the year to cut financial corners, or invest in the cheese windmills of Siberia, but it is the year to go for an unusual idea with a practical approach. You are empowered with exceptional stamina. You have a renewed focus on achievement as this is the culmination of a 30-year cycle. What have you been building up to over the past 28/30 years? Watch what happens when Mars conjuncts Saturn on April 2nd giving you the stamina of a Game of Thrones dragon ridden by a Queen.

On the 6th March, Venus La Amore goes into Aries! March is your love magnet time, you ooze charm and have a way with lovers. Spring is the perfect month to attract a lover, heal a relationship and make peace and nurture yourself. Your view and experience of love elevates now. How are you going to make the most of Venus snuggling you? What do you want from love?

One of the big deals of 2018 is  Chiron, the wounded healer, going into your sign. Now Chiron is not technically a planet, he’s a Comet, but a pretty special one. He has a very irregular way of travelling the Universe. When Chiron comes to your sign it has massive spiritual significance; it’s time to heal your deepest wounds. Chiron’s wisdom is that our hurts have also given us gifts and he encourages us to recover and support others with the understandings we have learned along the way. Any dents in our ‘ego’, in our sense of self are healing.

The last time Chiron was in Aries was 1968 – 1977 a time of punk rock, feminism and all sorts of ‘fighting to be individual’. Martin Luther King was assassinated 3 days after Uranus went into Aries in 1968 and John F Kennedy was also murdered a few months later, both of these men changing the world in the process. We also landed on the Moon (allegedly haha). Chiron teaches us that our vulnerability is our strength. It’s an inner acknowledgement of where we have come from.

Mars your fiery ruler goes retrograde from the 26th June which might initially make you feel a bit Meh. The Fire King is in your social and collaboration zone. While Mars is doing his backwards slide, it might be worth taking time out and focusing on putting your personal energy into projects and work alone for a while. Don’t panic if you feel all Hermit-like, take the time to recharge. Mars will soon be back dragging you into the limelight from August 28th.

On the 8th November Jupiter Lord of luck and expansion enters Sagittarius and your house of adventure. From November onwards you’re about to become quite the swashbuckler! The Universe is bringing all sorts of travel possibilities, higher learning, a thirst for knowledge and treasure. The more you express your unique soul, the bigger the reward. Unusual and fascinating people are going to cross your path and show you a world of jewels you never knew existed! Get ready for a bigger soul stretching experience and see 2018 as your training ground to get you ready for what’s to come.
