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!!

The Jupiter-conjunction-Pluto in Capricorn is happening three (3) times in this year 2020! Anyone who knows evening the slightest bit of astrology knows that (a) Conjunctions are really powerful and (b) when something involves Pluto, it’s going to be deep, intense.. and ultimately transformative. And there is a (c) too.. that when Jupiter is involved, there are beneficial forces at work! Let’s look at some details:
The Jupiter-Pluto-conjunction occurs on 5th April 2020, then the planets go retrograde. During this phase, they conjunct again, on 30th June. The planets slip far back in the sign of Capricorn… (Jupiter goes backwards to 17 degrees Capricorn, and Pluto back to 22 degrees). They slow and stop..and start to go direct. Pluto first then Jupiter. As Jupiter is a further back but a faster moving planet than Pluto, it eventually catches up to Pluto and conjuncts on 12th November for the 3rd time..
(note: Jupiter leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on 19th December.. where it then conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius on 21st December.. but that’s a stellar story for another blog).
The graphics shows exact dates when Jupiter & Pluto make certain `events’
Where? All of this is occuring in the sign of Capricorn the mystical sea-goat (ruled by Saturn). Capricorn is an Earth sign.. Jupiter is fiery and Pluto.. well, Pluto rules the deep, the unconscious, the underworld!
So who will these transits affect or influence? Short answer is…*everyone* Long answer.. Well, As all this is happening in Capricorn, that sign is the meeting-ground. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, and Pluto rules Scorpios. So those signs will be strongly affected too. But then, the position of Capricorn will be a particular house’ position for each individual. For some it will be their birth sign, for others it’s their 2nd house (wealth, values), 7th (relationships, partnerships), 10th house (Career, fame) and so on.. Capricorn will be one of the 12 houses for any one of you. So that particular sector of your life will be the one most transformed by these 3 repeated aspects.
Not only that – but on your own natal chart, look to see what house encloses the signs of Sagittarius & Scorpio. Those houses will be affected for you personally.
A conjunction blends and combines the energies of both planets involved. As Capricorn plays host to this conjunction, the energy of Capricorn will be added to the mix of Jupiter & Pluto.. Expansion, farsight, distant travel, higher learning, religion, law, Justice, gambling, impulsivity, risk taking, flirting & romance are some qualities to bear in mind for Jupiter. Intensity, secrets, probing, manipulation power, control, sexuality, others’ money, death and rebirth and ultimately transformations are the energies that Pluto brings to this conjunction. And as you can see…the combinations and permutations of these energies are very many indeed.
It all depends on what you are open to, how far you are willing to work with some of the energies, influences and issues that are surfacing..
You won’t just get one chance but three! The weeks and days leading upto the first occurence of this conjunction will raise up deeper issues. Rather than fearing them, start to acknowledge hem to your self..and work through them…resolve them.. integrate them.
By the time the conjunction has occurred a 2nd time (especially as both planets are retrograding), you may feel your best laid plans of dealing with these issues are all gone awry.. That may result in frustration, more fears, avoidance, obsessions, escapism, addictions, harming others or self-harming, destructive habits, manipulative habits and more. Or you may simply feel like or actually cut and run away.. avoid issues, take more risks, loose your temper.
Dabbling in the occult or dark magic may take you in unsafe directions.. and endanger self or others. Guard against falling prey to outside cult or occult influences.
Small things may trigger you into acting disproportionately, or exaggerate reactions, blow things out of proportions. The negative traits of Jupiter & Pluto may take hold. Usually during a triple-repeated conjunctions, the mid-point is very trying.. where nothing makes sense, and control and plans are gone.. and you may feel compelled to act in nonproductive ways..
That will be the time to work very hard at staying calm.. to stay grounded and centred.. to do more personal work of spirituality or psychology. Also a time to keep safe with tried and tested methods, people or places.. Stay safe.. but let go of expectations.
When such powerful planetary energies are at play, trying to become clever, trying to manage it, employing short cuts rather than working carefully and sincerely through the issues raised to surface is not going to work in the long term.
Between the 2nd and 3rd occurance of the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction..ie between 30th June and 12th November – Do The Work!! Be genuine.. and hold faith the fact that this is ultimately beneficial aspect and the transformation – once slowly and deeply achieved – will benefit you for decades to come.. for we will not live to see this similar aspect again in our lifetimes.
It may interest you to know, I myself will be strongly affected by these aspects.. (one of those planets rules my birth sign!). And there is one thing I have learnt about the influence of stars in my life. I can not cheat it by knowing about it in advance.. (I’ve tried in the distant past). So I myself will be trying to take some of this advise for me… And as more insights and far-sights surface, I’ll be sure to blog them/ add them here.
Magic & Spirituality
Of course there is one matter I have not mentioned so far.. Well I have in an indirect way. The cheating!
Many believe all of our lives and all that we do are `fated’ – that is to say predetermined by Fate or God or Goddess or universe, and we do not know but our futures are all set in stone. BUT an equal number of people believe that we humans have Free Will.. and that we are the Masters of our own destiny & futures. And certainly, those who practise Magic believe that we have the ability to influence and choose our future in a direct and esoteric way.. !
So I like to add a few suggestions..in the way of tackling the conjunctions coming, (well by the time you read this, the first of the conjunction will be happening.. I am writing this `under their influences already’ and that was intentional. I could have written this 2 months ago when i first mentioned it..but I wanted to get a better handle on the energies brewing..so I could write it better.. and I am. I trust that as the aspect brews, it’s inspiring me to write the most relevant words and thoughts.. The fact that I have never taken this style of writing an astrological blog is evidence of its influence.. as I didn not even think to add magic & spirituality to this blog.
To those suggestions then..
Work with some God forms and archetypes.. Learn about the gods and myths of Zeus and Jupiter.. and even a little of Thor and Vishnu (all are connected to Jupiter!) Learn and work with Pluto / Hades Lord of the Underworld.. Work with Shiva the dancing form (destroyer). And work with Saturn. Those are the energies at work here. and tuning into them more will help.
Though trying to control the outcomes of these aspects is likely to backfire.. doing some constructive planetary magical works can be productive.
It is a powerful time of transformation and expansion – though it may not seem that way. dig deep, or pierce the wounds .. clear the hole of clutter, and dross, and drain puss from old wounds.. Let it all heal.. and ready the ground and plant new seeds and dreams. These will grow into glorious new tall trees… Their roots will go deep..as their branches will spread far and wide.. beyond th small horizons you were ever used to before.

ps. I will shortly begin to offer my support & services for High Magical talismans/ charms, as well as personalised astrological forecasts (3, 6, 9 or 12 months). Please keep an eye on my blog or my official website http://www.Mani.org.uk. Thanks.
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
Jupiter & Venus are said to be the most beneficial planets of all..and they conjunct today at 08:15am (GMT / UT) in the sign of Scorpio.
Internet is buzzing with posts about observing this – here’s some clear info.
Jupiter & venus will be rising very close in the East at 5:58am GMT. (if you are facing East, it will be to the right of East). They will be very close to one another but the actual conjunction is at 8:15am. So you might think you have from 5:58 am to 8,15am to watch this. But No! Sunrise (in London) is at 7:11am. That’s also in the East and even before the sun rises..the light of brightening eastern horizon will start to be so string that compared to this pre-sunrise light, the little dots of Jupiter & venus will not be seen. (you don’t see stars in day time for same reason.. sunlight drowns it out!)
So to be safe, I’d say you have between 5.58am and about 6.30am to spot the Venus & Jupiter conjunction.
As you know Jupiter rules Sagittarius , and Venus rules Taurus & Libra. So people of these signs will have the biggest impact from this beneficial aspect. Oh..and Scorpios…whose sign is where all this is happening.
To be honest..because 2 of the most beneficial planets are involved, everyone is going to be positively aided by this stellar blessings…if you are open, optimistic and willing to receive that (traits of sagittarius there!).
Check your own birth charts..and look at the spot of 7’32” Scorpio.. that’s where this is happening.. See what house that falls in..that’s the sector of your life that will feel gain the most from this..(ie health, self, wealth, work, romance, career, friends etc..).
Jupiter is changing sign (after a year of being in Libra) and moving into Scorpio. That’s going to have a major impact on Scorpios & Sagittarians.. Librans will have enjoyed the positive influences, gifts and blessings that Jupiter (higher benefic) brings for a whole year.. And now it’s the turn for Scorpios to enjoy those benefits for the next 12 months 🙂
As for Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter- they will have felt the energies and qualities of Libra in their lives..striving for balance, harmony, beauty. But as Jupiter enters Scorpio…weelll.. Sagittarians are going to get all intense, go through some deep transformations, will be sorting out their powerbase, and generally gain authority and be in positions of power.. (if all that Saturn influences for the past 3 and a half years has been duly processed by them).
A little warning to others.. You know how you always are wary of Scorpios.. ? 😉 Well.. for the next year, give Sagittarians the same cautious respect..or you’ll find yourself in complex power & manipulative games you can not hope to win with them.. unless of course you are a Scorpio that is :-p
Hi all….in case you are all wondering about this great big T-square in the sky.. here are the details . Full moon at 11.34am GMT (in Moon’s own sign of Cancer, with Sun in opposite sign..Capricorn). Add to this the planet Jupiter in Libra that is squaring The Sun and squaring The Moon.. (in fact the full moon occurs after the squares have culminated)..
Normally the day/ night before the full moon is quite intense and magical for many people.. a case of the personal `cauldron reaching boil’ ..energies rising to the surface.. culminating etc.. And as it’s actually an opposition (Sun opposing Moon *is* what produces the Full moon after all)…energies are pulling us in opposite directions.. (It’s why full moons are said to bring out the crazy side of things!)
Add to that the effect of the 2nd biggest stellar object of the Solar system – Jupiter – forming squares which create a lot of dynamic energies… (following oppositions, squares are the 2nd most stressful aspect any 2 planets can form!).. you can see why the last 24 hours and indeed the hours leading upto this T-square is being highly tense, dynamic, stressful and probably creative and productive too 🙂
By tomorrow evening (thursday evening) though the moon may seem bright and full in the sky, the `energies’ of this T-square will be slowly reducing..
Signs deeply affected:
Leo (ruled by Sun), Cancer (ruled by moon), Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter), Capricorn (Sun is here now), Cancer (double-whammy- moon is here now), Libra (Jupiter is here now).
Of course we are all affected.. because at least 2-3 parts of each of our natal chart will be influenced by these planetary aspects.
Hi all, here’s a photo of the night sky last night.. As you can see, Jupiter (left) and Venus (right) are edging closer to a Conjuntion 🙂 Well, the actual date /time of this most auspicious conjunction is on 1st July 2015, at 07:51am GMT (when both planets will be on the 21’39” Leo position. Well, I shall take regular photos when possible (when skies are clear!!) and visibly track this event..
Just by chance I happen to glimpse a bright `star’ from my bathroom window..almost at low horizon in the west..and I knew instantly what it was..so ran out to garden with my Digital SLR ..and started clicking.. and then I looked to the SW sky and saw an equally bright object and knew ..that’s gotta be Jupiter.. Of course both were confirmed by me using my SKy-eye app on the mobile..(by pointing it / centering on object). So here we are..:-)
This blog shows 2 photos. Here are a few photos I took just hours ago (5th May 2015.. around 22:17hrs GMT) from my garden in South London area…in between fast moving clouds, using my DSLR (sony DSC-HX300).
This shot was taken (hand-held) using the 3D viewable function of the DSLR.
This shot was taken using the `superior auto’ function (low light).
It’s notable that currently Jupiter is at 13’41” Leo, and Venus is 27’17” Gemini. These two planets are of course called the beneficial planets.. So to capture them both in one frame is a great thrill for me.. 🙂 (no trickery.. it’s why I didn’t even stamp a `copyright’ note on the photo.. lest anyone thought I `graphixed’ it 🙂
Good news to everyone.. Jupiter is trine with Saturn today!
So by the time you are reading this, guess what.. you are already under that very positive influence of these stellar objects.
This aspect last took place in December 2013 (last year) and at that point, Jupiter was retrograding and Saturn was going direct. This time, however, Saturn is retrograding in Scorpio, and Jupiter is going direct in Cancer.
So Jupiter’s expansive and jovial powers combine harmoniously with Saturn’s authoritative and foundation laying energies. As always this is very good for making future plans – especially ones that involve laying foundations with a view to expanding your horizons, undertaking higher studies and deeper learning!
Sagittarians (ruled by Jupiter) , Capricorns (ruled by Saturn), Cancerian (Jupiter is in Cancer) and Scorpios (Saturn is in Scorpio) get the full blast of this great energy ..but all of you have access to this in one area or other of your life.. depending on where these two planets are currently positioned in your personal chart.
One observation is that both of these planets are in water signs currently, so focus on watery things – emotions, empathy, love, intuition, nurturing, sex & lust are all possible.
Remember that as Jupiter rules a fire sign, and Saturn rules an earth sign, one way to harness the energies of this would be to work with fire and earth…
Personally I was doing a lot of gardening yesterday, tidying up the clutter that had built up over winter, and then sat with a bon-fire burning some of that clutter.. Not only that, I was also moved to do a flame cleansing and consecration of my Magical sword.. At the time I had not been aware of this aspect brewing.. – yes even us Astrologers forget sometimes.. 🙂 But it looks like my intuition was spot on and I was doing just about the right thing anyway.. !
So look back at the past 24-48 hours to see what sort of activities you have been involved in.. to work out where the focus has been.. remembering that because of the Scorpio factor, there may have been intensity of some sort too..)
ps. How did you do with magical work at Eclipses? That was last month, when we had the Solar & Lunar Eclipses. If you are interested, you can visit my Eclipse Magic website and download a free 33 page e-Book that gives you the foundations of doing Magical work at Eclipses. The next set of eclipses are due in October’14.. So why not get started now? Visit Eclipse Magic

Less than 3 days to go..for the culmination of an intense stressful aspect that has been influencing many of us for the past few weeks..! Yes, we have already been in the grips of this one.. !
Powerful yet small planet(oid) Pluto ..currently transiting the sign of Capricorn, is being opposed by usually jovial Jupiter which is retrograding in the water sign of Cancer! This aspect will reach its intense culmination on Friday 31st January 2014..around about 9.15am (gmt) in the morning.. So the night of 30th is probably the one that we all have to ensure the most!!
Oppositions are stressful.. where energies of the opposing planets clash..! It doesn’t matter which side you are on.. you are going to feel the opposition..from the other side.. !
The signs mostly affected will be Sagittarius & Scorpios.. and also Cancerians & Capricorns.
In this case, energies of Jupiter- expansions, wisdom, generosity, law, exploring distant horizons or cultures..are going to be challenged…as will that of Pluto – power, sexual urges, secret desires, compulsions, obsessions! This intense jarring will result in side effects such as over-indulgence, gambling, need for exercising power and manipulating others, sexual obsessions or perversions, experimenting with the occult, magic or spells..and so on!
Do not gamble with other people’s money.. Do guard against secrets spilling out.. and do not probe into others’ secrets…!
How to navigate this difficult time? Well, am sure you already have been.. as these frustrating energies have been building up..! Oppositions can only be resolved by compromises and perhaps even some sacrifices..! The saving grace can come from the beneficial qualities of the planets involved…such as farsight, wisdom, deeper understanding of human nature, and perhaps some travels..
Pluto symbolises transformation.. Jupiter symbolises higher learning.! Use those key qualities for resolutions.. Also utilise the energies of the signs..where the oppositions are taking place..
Compromise means not just giving up a little of your own needs, wants and demands, but also understanding..and even taking on the qualities and suggestions of the opposing forces! In other words, allow some of the opposing energies to permeate you…and become part of you.. !
Then, true transformation takes place!
There is one big good news.. On the same day, Venus ..which has been going retrograde, goes Direct! That’s going to be good…for all things ruled by Venus.. from romances, relationships, arts and finances..! 🙂
