We’ve already had 2 Blue Moons this year..one of them an Eclipse too..and it’s been only 3 and a half months since 2018 started! In just under a month (15th May’18) there’s a huge shift about to happen…as the shocking, disruptive and innovative planet Uranus moves from fiery Aries to earth Taurus!
Uranus arrived in Aries back on 12th Match 2011… started to travel through Aries…had a retrograde motion and came almost to the early degrees of Aries by 10th December 2011…and so all that end of the world stuff, all the wars we have seen since then… with hot headed army and political boys playing with weaponised tech-toys.. intensified as we started 2012.. when Uranus started its proper and irreversible motion through Aries! Well..that’s the energy that’s coming to an end now.. (I’ve always said, Aries/Mars is like the fuse that lights the Uranus-fuel of volatile rebelliousness!).
So 15th May onwards, that energy becomes embedded in the luxury-seeking sensual earth Taurus. Definitely less war.. more love (Uranus rules Aquarius.. so I wonder if we’ll return to a new phase of `free love’..and if this is the phase 2 of the `Age of Aquarius’?! You read it here first folks! What do I know? Am just reeling it off intuitively as it comes into my mind).
Then of course we have the triple-set of Eclipses!!
13th July (new moon/partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer), 27th July (Full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius), and 11th August (new moon/ partial solar eclipse in Leo). I’ll be writing about that in extensive details later in a blog ( hey I wrote the first proper book on `Eclipse Magic’ back in 2012! I gotta give Eclipses some proper attention).
The other big shift is on 8th November, when fiery expansive Jupiter..currently travelling through deep & watery Scorpio, leaves Scorpio, and finally…after 12 years, arrives in the fiery Sagittarius.. a sign ruled by Jupiter! Yes Jupiter completes a 12 year zodiac tour of duty and comes home!! And Sagittarians all over the cosmos..okay just all over the World…will throw a party that will last 12 months!! (If you want to get invited to that, now is the time to get on their good side.. though being gregarious and kind and generous…they’ll invite you nearer the time anyway.. But as they are going through the `an elephant never forgets’ phase now.. it might be good to stay on their good side now..!
As for me..? I’m holding grudges this year and throwing a party in November ! 😉 :-p
A warning to all Aries, Leos, and Librans in particular…but not exclusive just to them..!
An opposition between Warrior-planet Mars and the all Mighty Sun culminates today by 21:03 hrs gmt (that’s 22:03hrs British Summer Time). Mars is in the airy and balance-seeking sign of Libra..and guess where the Sun is? In Aries..the actual fiery home of Mars!
Immediately you can see what’s going on.. lots of tension, and aggression.. ! It’s a battle between 2 of the most fiery stellar objects for us Earthlings! And the Sun’s in the home of Mars and Mars is literally on the opposite side of it.. It’s as if while you are on the other side of the road visiting a friend, another person got into your home and started shouting aggressive remarks at you..! And you can’t get home immediately to face-off!! But you are in the company of a friend who’s trying to bring you a bit of harmony and balance. Just how much of it you’ll heed is up to you!! It may even be a case that this influence where you are at is actually fanning your flames..than soothing you!
The Sun rules Leo.. so Leos are going to be affected by this too.. And as there is a this strong tussle between 2 of the firey planets, and both Aries and Leo are affected, it’s inevitable that by resonance, the other member of the triplet- Sagittarius will also be feeling the heat!
Sagittarians will come under fire in about a week’s time ..facing their own heavy battles! Perhaps this is the fuse being lit!
Fuses often lead to explosions.. and explosions can either be used to open up blocked paths and caves…or destroy homes and palaces.
The only way to handle an opposition is to reach some level of compromise.. Don’t give in..and don’t take it all…
Good luck.. !

We are mid-way through the 7-waves of the Pluto-square-Uranus aspect (2012 to 2015). The coming weeks will get intense, chaotic, full of shocks and few surprises.. accidents, wrangles, rebellions, and innovations.. The current aspect culminates on 2nd November.
Star signs to be severely affected will be Aquarians & Scorpios.. and as those planets are in certain signs, Aries & Capricorns will be equally affected. And of course the rest of the signs..to further degrees.. directly and indirectly as the rest field the fall-outs.. I am already seeing plenty of `evidence’ of these signs being affected.. just by keeping my eyes open.. ..
Latest: Uranus retrograde: 22nd July 2014 to 22nd December 2014.
I never know if I should blurt it out or be airy-fairy about upcoming tough times. And in the end I go with the advise my HPS gave me… `Don’t hide important news.. People are adults..and they have the capacity to deal with whatever comes their way’ (event the ones who think they can’t..to most extent!)
So I’ll say this.. as Uranus now starts retrograde motion in the sign of Aries.. and will now so for about 5 months.. it’s going to get difficult for Aquarius people (because Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)..and it will also drag Aries people through some hard times.. (because Uranus is going retro in Aries). It’s a bit like having a guest (Uranus) in your home who is going through a rough patch..and that will affect you and your household…no matter what.
Uranus has those good influences of being outspoken, surprises, rebelliousness, eccentric ideas, innovation..and humanitarian drives within it (it’s Robin-Hood planet!) But when retrograding it shows up its unsavory side..of disruptions, chaotic behaviour, over-eccentricity, rebellion for the sake of it, shocks (rather than surprises).. This is what’s coming up. Now Aries is a fiery sign.. the first sign of the zodiac.. and at times called the child phase. Aries people are good at starting things.. but need the help of others to carry through and complete. They have the spear..but need power behind it.
The Aries-Aquarius combination of energies is a very dynamic one.. humanitarian fire, rebellious force, passion for change are all possible.. But when one of these has been given a cosmic `review’ time.. (Aquarius) that’s what the focus should be…rather than forging ahead…or tangling up others. Otherwise both Aries & Aquarius people (those in close bonds) could ..drive each other crazy..instead of helping one anther!
Uranus entered Aries about 2 years ago (12th March 2011).. Alas that’s when the `restless’ period started for Aries (and a surge of energy for Aquarians). Uranus will remain in Aries till 16th May 2018…yes another 5 more years of what they have been already experiencing in life for the past 2+ years). In that time, of course Uranus will go through several retrograde periods (5 months at a time)…so these issues will be relevant every time.. and hopefully as any deeper issues are resolved each time, it will get easier..
After all, the Stars and Planets keep giving us opportunity after opportunity..to keep improving our lives.. That’s the purpose of astrology.. to find those and make use of them.
Just thought I’d give a quick heads-up to all about the rather volatile full moon that’s coming up.
It’s not volatile just because it’s an Aries full moon (30th Sept, 03:03 hrs gmt) but there are some other agitating aspects also culminating just before this full moon.
The ones in question – which is the tail end of a 2 weeks of quite challenging transits – are the following:
Today (27th sept)- Mars-square-Venus (can’t be easy for relationships, especially the ones not in any, as this would be getting them rather stressed!)
-Sun-opposes-Uranus> That’s gotta be quite powerful, when your own identity may well be challenged.
-Sun-square-Pluto> Yes, the final Pluto-related (stressful) transit for now. Sun is energy & health, and pluto- well I’ve talked about pluto enough in other posts. Theme on this one is the extremes, as Sun is at the heart of our Solar system, fueling and holding all, and Pluto is furthest and small planetoid. And it’s a square….so the events will force your hands to take action. Remember, no action is still an action.. But make a decision on deeply personal matters, before they eat you from within. And your energy levels will return.
So all that…before the Full moon on 30th.. Lot of energy flying about.. Aries is a fire sign,and moon (watery) is not going to be a comfortable place as it is… Am not talking about planets, but how these are going to affect you, make you experience things.
