Mars attack on Saturn & Uranus

AstroAlert:

Mars opposes Saturn today and opposes Uranus on Sunday! We’ve needed this martian fire for a while.. and Mars in firey Leo now provides exactly that!!

Aries, Capricorns, Aquarians, Taureans and Leos will feel the sharp ends of this more than other signs..

Might be a time for challenging limitations, restrictions and breaking free from them. Authority figures are going to feel stressed by challenges from a youthful warrior quarter.

Fueling some innovative plans or humanitarian causes is a better way to channel these mars-square energies being stirred up.

AstroAlert: Saturn (r)-square-Uranus – part2 of 3 coming up!

AstroAlert! Uranus-square-Saturn (pt 2/3).

For any of you getting twitchy.. the 2 Eclipses may be over, but we’ve been under the influence of the retrograde Saturn (in Aquarius) getting close to a square with Uranus (in Taurus). This will culminate on Monday 14th around 23.:01 hrs BST. As Saturn rules Capricorn, and Uranus rules Aquarius, those signs will feel the influence more.. Aquarius more so, as not only is one of the planets involved transiting through it but its ruler is the other planet involved in the square! 😦

This is the 2nd time this Saturn-square-Uranus is happening this year (we had this once already on 17th February.

And am sorry to say this will repeat one more time.. at a rather `inconvenient’ time of X’mas eve (so I imagine the 1-2 weeks leading to X’mas will have the same stressful themes surfacing / playing out in your lives.. unless of course, we figure out the themes that surfaced in early February, and now early June.. and work through them and resolve them genuinely.. (or make a good start of it..) Do that, and December’s Saturn(D)-square-Uranus(R) will be kinder.

If people who are -not- Aquarians, Capricorns or Taureans, think you are immune from these influences.. no chance. Look at the house positions of the above signs in your own natal charts to see what areas in your lives are getting this harsh square energy.

On a general level, Saturn is about holding things in place. Limits & restrictions. Delays.. (but also stability, structure, foundations). And Uranus is about Freedom, (free-from-restrictions), rebellion, shocks and thrills, innovation, technology, humanity.. So in some ways one theme that plays out might be the being-pinned down vs breaking free.

But life is never that simple or straight forward.. is it? A total lawless Freedom to roam comes with the price of not having security, rootedness, home, stability.. And laying out long term foundations, building authority and holding power/ responsibility comes with compromises of not being able to just shake it all off and run riot/ free and `do what you like’ .

The key is going to be balancing both, and compromising.
In short, unless you are good at astral projections or have a space ship, you are stuck on Earth and woven into the lives of hundreds ..nay billions of lives. Their every actions affects you and your every whim and wants do shape everything around you. (‘cos we are all connected, innit?!!!).

So ..stop fighting it all.. and give in to compromises.
Stop giving in to everything also.. and rebel a bit.
(yeah you see. .. conflicts!)

There’s not much i can say here that’s going to make a damn bit of difference.. You are going to have to figure these energies out your selves.

My job has been to just throw a bit of spot light on it and speak the obvious… and come across like all wise and clever. 8-|

And that’s me writing this forecast under the influence of Uranus-square-Saturn 😉 :-p

Jupiter’s journey through Pisces 13May’21 to 21Dec’22

On 13th May 2021, Jupiter arrived in Pisces (a sign traditionally ruled b Jupiter). Jupiter stays there for few months, retrograding, going back to Aquarius till end of the year 2021. Then Jupiter steadily travels through Pisces, going into Aries (next sign) .. But due to another retrograde motion, comes back to Pisces ..and finally leaves Pisces on 21st December 2022.

here are the details and the info-graphics showing the dates/ degrees/ signs.

13 May 2021 – Jupiter enters Pisces
21 June 2021 – Jupiter in ‘Pisces. Begins Retrograde (2’Pisc)
28 July 2021 – retrograde-Jupiter re-enters Aquarius

Saturn’s motion through Aquarius (2020-2022)

Mercury retrograde May-June 2021

Retrograde planets in 2021

Mercury retrograde -29May to 22June 2021 & related forecasts.

AstroAlert: Mercury Retrograde starts in Gemini!
(post exploring several upcoming astrological events).

Hi all.. it’s that time, for us to blame everything that goes wrong on Mercury-retrograde :-p Seriously though, this coming Mercury-retrograde is going to be `tricky’ indeed (sorry sorry I’ll try not to get distracted with silly jokes).

But am not joking though. not a word of it so far.

Mercury rules Gemini (and Virgo).. and from tomorrow 29th May 2021- till 23rd June’21, Mercury will be retrograding in its own sign. Now initially this can freak out many people ( I include myself as one). but on a bit more careful thought of the overall pattern, I am led to believe (led astray? okay okay sorry).. that this coming 3 weeks is about to set us all off on a very interesting journey.
Why?
Because this is not jus about Mercury.. but as the cosmic magician and messenger, it/ he is doing something `interesting’.

We already have Pluto retrograding, and Saturn started retrograding too just a week ago. And as many hyped up online astro writeups have been saying, we’ve juts had the first of a set of eclipses. But that’s not the exciting bit (did I just use the word exciting and interesting, instead of crazy, disruption, excruciating?)

Already yesterday/ today I’ve had to deal with a lost parcel worth £112. (It’s okay after some calls, I got the parcel!). And Mercury retro hasn’t even started yet!!

As Quantum Mech states, observer is not separated from the observed. Likewise, an astrologer is never separate or immune from the forces of planets.. and we are humans too, and I put in some personal stuff to indicate that the planets affect me too.. and am in the trenches with all of you (`We are in this together’).

Back to forecast. As someone with Gemini-rising, I know all about the forces of Mercury retrograde affecting (assaulting?) my life :-p (I say all this in such a jolly way.. but wait a few days till we are all in it and my tune will change and I’ll be angst-ridden no doubt ). Ya see.. honesty ! Personal empathy !! 😉

So with Saturn & Pluto in retrograde, now Mercury starts too.. That’s already quite much. But that’s just the start .. sorry!

Just as this Mercury retro ends (22nd june), Jupiter-retrograde begins (21st june) and a week later Neptune-retrograde begins (26th June). We then have 2 months where .. there’s Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter & Neptune are retrograding. Uhhh 😦 And then Uranus-retro begins on 20th August.

No you can’t hitchhike out of Earth on a passing spaceship and run away to Andromeda!!

Each planet goes through a retrograde period every year. It’s unavoidable (except Mercury that does it 3 times, Venus & mars sometimes don’t).

Often in life, we speed through so many things.. and like a person going at 77mph on M4 who missed a turning and has to then keep going a bit more till we find another exit, then double-back via back-roads.. to find that missed exit/ destination.. sort it out..and then get back on track.. we are forced to do so …in life.. by the retrograde influences of the planets.

Don’t think of it as disruptions.. even if it feels that way.
Think of it as Recovery. Reconnect. Regroup. Refine. Rest. Recuperation. Re-imagine. Re-fuel. Retro-fitting. Realigning. (include Remorse. Restitution).
You get the picture now? !

As for Mercury retro.. think of it as finding the parcel that got lost 😉 Finding the path that you could have taken but didn’t and now have a chance to atleast consider.

Think of it as lost messages being found.
After all.. Mercury is the Messenger of the Gods!
Why would we ever think Mercury retrograde is `bad’?
Gods don’t mistakes.. do they?!

So let me go back (or forward, to events that have not happened yet).

the 3rd Mercury retrograde will happen between 27th Sept- 19th October!! Oh for crying out loud, we haven’t even started this one and am going on about the next one, I hear you exasperating?!

Bear with me.. am already under it’s influence :-p
That’s not a bad thing , as this is happening on my ascendant.. Either am way off the mark.. or the Messenger god is speaking sharply to me this time.. (and I’ve just had a lunar eclipse in my sign too).

So here come s the punch-line!
All the retrogrades we are beginning to experience now and in the coming months are all going to end ..bit by bit, around about the time the 3rd phase of mercury retrograde ends..

The mind-messenger planet is about to start a period of reconnections and reintegrations between us and other planetary energies.. that will culminate with the end of the next mercury retro.
We have no choice but to live through this.
And we should..

The world has gone through a crazy time with covid-19 pandemic, fears, lockdowns, deaths, laws, power & controls, conspiracies, protests and so much more.. in the past 18 months.. And what now follows is a cosmic opportunity for re-structuring.. Am not bothered by what the government is going.. Forget that.

This is a chance to work your power..

Oh did I mention that the 2nd part of the Eclipse is happening in 2 weeks, in the sign of …Gemini on 10th June, while ruler of Gemini (Mercury) is still retrograding?

Ah yes.. BANG!
There are no coincidences in astrology.
My teacher used to say, when the planets want to give you a message, they do so in 2-3 ways.

Mercury retrograding in its own sign of Gemini, while a annular solar Eclipse happens in Gemini.. is that message coming in more than one way.

That the final mercury retrograde happens in the sign of Libra – symbolising balance, just as all the upcoming retroplanets going direct after many months of summer.. is part of that message.

That then is the bigger picture ..in more detail and less hype.

What does it all mean?
Oh come on.. Have you not been reading what I’ve been just writing?

I only meant to do a few lines.. but look at this crazy long forecast-thingy that’s just spilled out of me..
Thank you Mercury – lord of magic and messages, mind, journeys and connections – without whom, we’d be just blobs of brain disconnected from bodies and lives.

And ps. this is the most unusual forecast I never planned to write.
Like I said, am under the influence too…and I teach by example.
So read all that am saying. Read between the lines.. 😉
Bright Stellar Blessings

Retrograde Planets in 2021

Hi all. here’s the graphics (hand drawn with pencil and ink) for the full retrograde planetary motion / dates for this 2021. I’ll type up the dates later on here..but the graphics shows everything.

Retrograde Planetary motions in 2021 – blog / art (c) Mani Navasothy http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net

As I write this on 20th February 2021, on the eve of Mercury going direct, we are about to enjoy a full 2 months of NO RETROGRADE period (21st Feb to 27th April).

And heads up- from 20th August to 6th October, there’ll be 5 planets retrograding .. that’s Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.. all of the transpersonal and generational / global planets.

***The most intense period will be when Mercury retrograde also joins those 5.. namely, 27th Sept to 6th October – when 6 planets will be retrograde!!! ***

A few more observations. There is NO retrograde for Mars this year! BUT Venus begins retrograde on 19th December and will end that on 29th January 2022. So bit of warning, Yule/ Christmas / New year time is going to be not so easy in 2021.. especially the days leading to Xmas, as the Uranus-square-Saturn culminates for the 3rd time on 24th Dec’21.

Below are some hard works that I manually go through to create these astrology blog posts.. (every time!). I don’t put it through some software. It’s all done by hand and with intuition & past observations guiding me as I write forecasts. Just so you know ..!

Please don’t copy my graphics and put it on your pinterest or some other places. I DO NOT give permission, and have NEVER given permission for any of my art/ graphics to be put anywhere.

A Jupiter-Venus Good Fortune Spell (Free online) TODAY 12noon

TODAY on Thursday 11th February, the most beneficial planets Jupiter & Venus will be conjunct!! This is happening on a new moon day!! That’s a stellar opportunity for planetary magic that must not be missed!!!

So we’re setting this FREE online event at a special time at 12noon.. to go through step-by-step, and do this magic together!

The actual conjunction occurs at 3pm UK time.. so by teaching and going through it at 12pm, you’ll be attuning to it and `capturing’ the energies of this most auspicious joining of 2 planets.. !

I’ve been doing astrology & planetary magic for many decades.. and will be teaching & guiding you through this step by step.. This spell does not exist. It’s been created by me just for this occasion, adapted from my own private workings. Normally I keep this to myself, but as a Sagittarian ruled by Jupiter, I’ve been propelled by intuition to lead this today (hence the short notice). The world is very much in limbo with many intense difficulties.. There has never been a need for positivity more so than now.. to give people Hope, inspiration, and motivation.. to lift spirits and lives up!

Enough about all that.. If you are any it into astrology and planetary magic, you’ll want to do this with me. Even if you can’t get all the tools and ingredients together quickly (I’ve kept it so easy but keeping the essence intact).. at least join and observe… so you can learn a bit of planetary magic for Free (normally my courses have a fee around £20-30 for this sort of workshop/ course).

Preparations/ tools needed—–

1. A candle (for the spell) – At the most luxurious, you can use a large pillar candle, or a simple long dinner candle…or the very least, a tea-light candle. What colour? That’s up to you.. white is better. But red is better.. Blue or purple are good too. But don’t worry.. just have a new candle ready. [Real witches & magicians have to be able to do magic quickly with what they have. sometimes!].
— You’ll need a candle holder too to place this candle (if it’s tea-light or pillar candle it will stand on its own.
–lighter/ matches (obviously).

2. A large White (A4) size blank paper (or card) & pen (any colour). This paper/ card is where you’ll be writing some key words to power up, and place the spell-candle. This paper/ card will then become a `sigil-talisman’ to keep. So try to find something that can last longer.

some sort of incense / sage for cleansing your working space – if you can manage something.

3. [optional]
Altar candle(s). If you already have some altar candles.. Have them lit when we start this work. Light/ fame are magical and clear space and create a positive environment to do this magical work.

4. [optional]
Sit and think about 5-10 key positive things you like in your life..
This is not a gratitude thing. This is a WISH spell. So think of the things you want, desire, need – to be fulfilled and have a happy life.
(examples; Financial wealth, friendships, love, relationship, Job, career, work, good health, freedom, passing exams, happiness, loved ones being healthy/ happy, progress in life…all that!! )

Jupiter & Venus – between them are all about GOOD-FORTUNES & GOOD-LUCK. Their energies can help with all good things.

That’s it.. get your stuff ready…and log in at 12pm..
We won’t waste time.. we’ll get straight to it.
I’ll give some brief explanations of the God/ Goddess we are drawing in, explain the magic, and off we go..!

Once zoom starts, I’ll lock the room to avoid distractions.
There will be NO replay. You get one chance.. to take it!!

Love & Monsters? here comes help from Venus & Jupiter!

Hello everyone.. With so much stresses going on, lockdown restrictions, and some intense aspects…it’s not been an easy time of late. I myself have had so many challenges and struggles. But have had to keep the faith and trust ..and at times…take one breath at a time – so to speak. (Saturday/sunday was particularly difficult.. what with the sharp Venus-square-Uranus). Close friends and loved ones have been telling me about their nights of difficulty.. and internal struggles.

Well.. energies are shifting.
On this thursday there’s a new moon in Aquarius.. AND the 2 most beneficial planets Venus & Jupiter conjunct (join energies) in Aquarius. That leads into the Valentine weekend.

I’ll be doing a series of magical workings/ online events to help with shifting energies, enhancing positivity (free events!)

So keep an eye on my page, blog, youtube channel and meetup.
But first why not check Frey the Village Witch’s blog on Self-Love in preparation ? http://freyathevillagewitch.com/spell-for-self-love

Humans, Magic and Will to Survive! (& some astro-alerts on Saturn-square-Uranus)!!

The thing about human beings.. we have the capacity to fight.. fight and fight.. against all odds ..and even win! What kills many is not the condition but the loss of Will to fight on. I’ve seen this in some of the relatives who led extremely active lives and when retired and nothing to do…slump into darkness, where dis-ease and finally death takes them.. long before their old age.

And the thing about Magic is “the attempting to cause the Physically unusual” (Gerald Gardner) , and “..the control of the secret forces of nature” ( MacGregor Mathers). (and of course the well-quoted A.Crowley version ,”..causing change to occur in conformity with the Will”. My own version is `changing reality with the use of mind-powers’!

Why all this now? Well, we are leading to a powerfully positive Venus-conjunction- Saturn for tomorrow. Tonight is when you can do magic for a wonderful happy stable future! But by tomorrow noon, we’ll be heavily into the energy of a stressful Venus-squares-Uranus.. and that one you’ll have to brave while holding on to positivity.

Whilst people may think am talking out of my arse , they may not know that I battle a lot of conflicting forces on a personal level every day.. I have my own demons & shadows to battle every day.. some literally! But what underpins my ongoing survival is my faith in Gods, and my magic, and hope in a better future.


Stay positive, and stay consistent. And don’t ever ever give up on life.. yours and others’. Keep fighting, keep struggling, keep winning!
In astrology some of the best aspects are the harsh ones.. the ones that stretch and stress us.. Energy is released when we smash up atoms together or pull the nucleus apart by firing particles at it. Salts and inert gases do nothing more than insulate and protect. But acids and alkalines, as dangerous as they are, eat and erode and heat and explode. They make things happen! Soil in a jar of water can be all muddy and cloudy. But stir it vigorously and let it be, and it settles into a strata of different layers!


Energy is now building for a larger disruptive aspect – the Saturn-square-Uranus – that will repeat 3 times this year!. This is the most over riding aspect(s) of 2021. Saturn holds, Uranus liberates. So this aspect is a battle between 2 opposing forces.. and a lot of things are about to be shaken to the core, and when it all settles, we’ll have that brilliant stable new future.


From time to time, I’ll give you little prompts, aspects to be careful of, and aspects to jump up and benefit from!

Mercury Retrograde through Aquarius (30Jan-21Feb2021) – astrology forecast

Mercury Retrograde: Is this one a walk in the park.. finally?
Heads up on the upcoming Mercury Retrograde through Aquarius. This infographics has all the info !!!!

Infographics - Mercury retrograde through Aquarius  30th January to 21st February 2021.
Infographics – Mercury retrograde through Aquarius 30th January to 21st February 2021 – blog /art (c) Mani Navasothy – author teacher Witch http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net


I always consider ..not just the period of actual retrograde (in this case from 30th Feb to 21st feb), but also the date when the planet catches up to it’s previous advanced position.. for that’s when the issues brought up during the retrograde period are truly getting resolved so further progress can be made.

Between 30th Jan to 21st Feb-

— past issues are going to come up hard and fast. I note that at start and end of retrograde period, the effects are more disruptive.. and in between, we get a little calm but still have to be working on identifying those things bubbling (or rather erupting) up

— During this time, the retrograde Mercury forms various aspects with other planets (that’s normal). BUT what’s amazing about this particular one.. is that apart from the 10th Feb, when Mercury(R) squares Mars ( a volatile stressful day), there are NO negative or harsh aspects between Mercury and any other planets (excluding the moon – that’s a special case!).

-During this retrograde time, if anything, it forms beneficial aspects! On 8th Feb, it conjuncts The Sun; On 13th it conjuncts Venus, and on 14th it conjuncts Jupiter (which happens *again* later on 5th March , during it’s direct motion!! That in itself is a 2nd chance.

-warning: Saturn in Aquarius forms a square on 17th Feb.. a few days before Mercury goes direct. That may cause other deeper difficulties.. and may seem like it’s Mercury retrograde doing it. So please don’t always blame the `messenger of the Gods’ for everything

And finally Mercury leaves Aquarius on 15th March.
So between 30th January and 15th March, Aquarians have a lot of work to do.. dig deep, go over older issues, explore and resolve them.
I’ll have to write more specific forecasts on those matters another time, as this one is about Mercury retrograde.

Jupiter-square-Uranus (17Jan2021)

Jupiter-square-Uranus is now imminent! Next 24-48 hrs may be tough..It affects everyone.. but more so for Sagittarians, Aquarians, and Taurus (where Uranus is currently).

Uranus is about to go direct but for few more days it’s retrograding in Taurus. Jupiter is in Aquarius (just arrived few weeks ago) ..the sign ruled by Uranus. So plotted on a chart, this would look like the 2 planets are heading towards each other!

Till then the stress will be building!!

It may rattle you ..taunt you.. irritate you.. cajole you into unproductive action. Use the sharp energy to break stagnations, and to clear pathways for widening your spheres.

Don’t be too impulsive or rebel for the sake of rebellion. Focus on the higher positive qualities of those 2 planets.. wisdom, justice, innovation, freedom.. !

Rest easy in the knowledge that this aspect happens only once this year.. (sunday 17th Jan’21). This is one of the 4 main major stressful aspects of 2021.

The Saturn-square-Uranus that is coming up next month will repeat in total 3 times..

So… let’s carefully tackle each…one at a time.
