Astro-climate: Next 3 weeks of thrills, spills and Towers falling!

Astro-climate: Next 3 weeks of thrills, spills and Towers falling!

We are currently under a few powerful astrological transits involving the shocks & surprises planet Uranus…who is retrograding..! On Monday Venus trine Uranus. Today Mars-trine-Uranus. On Friday few hours before new moon in Virgo, Sun trines Uranus. Then on sunday Mercury trines Uranus (while Venus trines Saturn).

Next 2 week there’s a mixture of trines, oppositions and squares.. So these coming 3 weeks is going to rattle us all over the place.. This weeks’ Uranus aspects are all trines..positive..but Uranus is going retrograde. So I get the feeling of Towers falling.. !!

In the immediate moment, what surfaces might feel shocking and painful…but because the aspects are trines, I do believe that it’s all going to be necessary evil/ good..for a better future. Lance to boil sort of thing..

I started to feel tremors in my own life some week back..and certainly…in last few days.. (aspects seem to hit me a few days in advance…probably cos I try to get ahead as an astrologer but they get me anyway…or maybe it’s their way of alerting me.. by putting me through the ringer first.. And what happens is I slowly `stabilise’ and can then hold the fort..for all around me..or write stuff like this..).

I’ll try and give it time to write about each of those aspects coming up over next few weeks..  (come back to this same blog post- I’ll edit it with more specific details soon).

AstroGlossing: What Uranus did next – End of war mongering & a return to Free Love?

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!

astroGlossing - May to November 2018 by Mani Navasothy

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

Uranus Retrograde begins: Storm warning for Aries & Aquarians

Uranus retro in Aries -july2013
Uranus retro in Aries -july2013

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.

Astrology Live: New Moon in Cancer, Saturn goes direct..and..

new moon in cancer ..aided by energies of saturn going direct
new moon in cancer ..aided by energies of saturn going direct

On this day (8th July 2013), we have a Dark Moon/ New moon in Cancer, Saturn that has been retrograding for 5+ months goes direct in the watery and intense sign of Scorpio, , and there is a wonderful Venus-trine-Uranus aspect.  (Venus in Leo, Uranus in Aries…both fire signs).

All these are brilliant astrological influences..

Key words to bear in mind are new beginings on sentimental and home fronts, issues of long term plans and struggles with authority or parents easing up and progressing… and unexpected leisure, romantic or social matters.   (No doubt the heat wave in London will have fueled many a social encounters.. already !)

Astro-warning: Stressful week ahead due to upcoming Uranus-square-Pluto transit (20th May 2013)

Uranus square Pluto transit 20 May 2013
Uranus square Pluto transit 20 May 2013

I’ve written about the 7-part transit of the Uranus-square-Pluto transit occurring between 2012 to 2015.. (the 7 transforming waves).

We’ll, part 3 is about to take place on 20th May 2013.. (and part 4  on 1st November!).

Am sure may can ‘t have helped but already notice that the past 1-2 weeks have been getting edgier.. sudden disruptions, little things ending up causing big consequences or effects, stress and so on.. The next 6 days are going to see more of this in more or less every one of our lives.. as we get closer and closer to the energies of this Uranus-square-Pluto culminate ..on the night of Monday 20th May 2013 at 23:02 hrs GMT (UT).

Uranus is currently travelling through the sign of Aries, and Pluto is retrograding through Capricorn!  Sorry…it’s a double-whammy disruptions and chaos for Scorpio and Capricorn, and rather close and intensive time for Aries and Aquarius.  But pretty much intensive, ultimately transformative ..after a period of sudden disruptions …for everyone.

Issues regarding sex, secrets and obsessive habits, wrangles with technology and machinery, computers and internet, realms of the occult can all be part of the themes of issues that come up right about now. Power struggles, hidden or otherwise, fight for control or manipulative behaviour, sleepless nights with over active minds (and possibly inventions and innovations surfacing) will be some symptoms of deeper processes like the pressure of molten earth building towards a volcanic eruption.

As I said, it’s not the first or the last time.

To get a clue of what sort of issues may play to the surface in YOUR particular life, look back at what you were dealing with …last year  around about April -May 2012, and also around about late September to October 2012.   Those matters and issues, if they have not been properly resolved within your lives, will surface again.

But if all those have been explored in the recent 6 months, and you have been learning and transforming your life in many ways, then this wave will not have such a harsh disruptive effect on you ..   (though other issues may now surface).

Again, there will be a further phase of this in October, and more next year..

Trick is to really go deep with the issues that come up, and learn through and let your life be transformed..   and sooner you let that happen, the lesser these Uranus-Square-Pluto transits will smash over your body like giant waves  breaking over you from behind on a tempestuous beach, while you are standing there looking the other way!

Look at the sea, be aware of the wave that is coming..   and be prepared …as much as you can..

Running away is not an option..  because it’s a wave that will hit everywhere!

But then, if you look truthfully and deeply, you already know in your heart..what  am talking about.

Good luck.. for your transformation..  and may you shed the old skin and be reborn.

Disruptive aggression of Uranus-opposition-Mars (19July’12)

Chances are- you are already feeling the effects of this particular astrological aspect!   It’s probably come out of old brewing issues, but has exploded from the depths, to the conscious mind within the last few days..or even last 12 hours!

The opposition of Mars against Uranus is taking place in the early hours of tomorrow (19th July’12).  2:55hrs GMT to be exact (3:55hrs British summer time). Mars is a planet symbolising war, assertiveness, aggression, initiative of new ideas/ actions..  and rules the sign of Aries.  Uranus is one that rules Aquarius, and has the effect of creating humanitarians, innovations, freedom …but in its disruptive form, causes rebelliousness, overt eccentricity and possibly even terrorism! (humanitarian rebellious ideals gone too far!)

So a show-down between these two planets is not going to sit easy in anyone’s life!! Especially for Aries, Aquarians andLibrans.  Why Librans? Well, Mars is currently in the sign of Libra.  What’s actually (astrologically_) traumatising is the act that Uranus is in the sign of Aries..  the home of Mars. So from a Mars point of view, it’s as if you were out on a world tour (of the Zodiac) while you get a long term visitor staying in your home, and suddenly, they are having fights and arguments with you over distance – phone or e-mails or even through other mediums.   Ah, I almost forgot about Mercury – planet of communication …currently going retrograde! So, what ever miscommunications can happen…will happen. And that’s not good for people involved in aggressions and rebellions!

Feelings of violence can escalate – so would a sense of your own eccentricity and individualities.

This really is a difficult time..   My advise?   Try to step away from it all…just for 24 hours..  read a book, watch tv, write a blog or two :-p

Astrology webinar: Venus trines & transits

Invitation to : Astrology Webinar on 12th March’12.
http://instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=27265485

Venus trine & transit

February started with a Mars-opposition-Venus. On the 15th Feb, Venus-squared-Pluto!! That energy overshadowed Valentine’s day.. Guess what? 14th March is looking brilliant. Venus-trines-Mars! (good) Venus-conjuncts-Jupiter (auspicious). ..and Venus-trines-pluto (Hot n intense!)..and and..Mars-tines-Jupiter.. (project and expand!)…and following day (15th Match), Mars-trine-pluto (more heat and passion..and raw sex!!) That’s not all. We are building up the expectations of the Venus-transit of the Sun, due to take place on 6th June!

On the other hand, we have got an intense aspect of Uranus-square-Pluto and Jupiter-square-Neptune , taking place on 24th/ 25th of June. Squares in astrology are the most excruciating ones that agitate us into taking action on pain of internal stress (not even oppositions are that challenging. They just require compromises and balances).

I’ve been exploring western astrology for over 2 decades. I’ve written weekly forecasts for AgeNet in the mid-90’s, provided private Chart & interpretations, and have freely given transit advise for close family & pagan friends for many years. My personal interests are in forecasting, and in what I call Astro-magic (using charts and transits to do personal magical work – not quite chart-correcting, but similar in a magical way).

The upcoming *double-grand trines is one not to be missed for personal work… especially when beneficial planets are involved. Let’ be honest- we can all do with more fortunes, wealth, luck and love. (*grand trine happens between 3 planets, and a double-grand-trine is when 2 of these happening at the `same time’).

So I like to share my insights on these, on how you can tune into these stellar energies and benefit from them in your lives.
Join me in a special webinar – totally ** free! Post questions beforehand. Log-in, tune in, phone in ..and listen.. watch…and even interact via chat with other

listeners! (Why Free? because astrology is a private calling, and these very trines are compelling me to share them. There is plenty of energies and good fortunes in the known universe to benefit all lives – we don’t need to hog, hide or hijack any of it).

Here’s the link for the Webinar.. Just go take a look now..
And on the night, click in to `listen to webinar’ and …listen. It’s that easy.
http://instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=27265485
So, I hope to speak to you on the night in the net or via phone / skype.In case some of you are thinking that you don’t know astrology, transits, aspects.. Don’t panic. The webinar page has a link to an astrology article that gives all a simple beginners guide. In addition, I will spend a little but important time covering the basics of astrology in the webinar itself. Besides which, knowledge of astrology is not required at all, for you to benefit from it. Most of us drive a car but not all know how the machines work under the bonnet. Same with astrology. You can use it, without knowing the details of its mechanics.

Bright Blessings & great fortunes
