Scorpio Solar Eclipse (23rd October 2014, 11pm UK time)

ooooh it's an interesting eclipse!
... in Scorpio it's all about the point of no return... where in your life are facing a point of no return? The point of no return isn't the end of the story with Scorpio though, it means you're also renewing, rebirthing, and rising from the ashes restored and ready to roar.

This eclipse is such an unusual planet set-up too. It doesn't happen often! What's happening is the sun starts its yearly journey through the sign of Scorpio and almost immediately its joined by the moon, which means it's a new moon at the beginning of the sun's journey - this doubles up the 'new beginnings' symbolism, so expect new starts, new emotions, new steps, etc in your own circumstances.... added to this, it's an eclipse, which in astrology makes events and circumstances that are happening around you now much more likely to have long-term impact and importance.

Imagine throwing a pebble into a lake, it plops in and makes pretty circles in the water that radiate out.... and then take a huge stone, throw that in and watch the splash and waves it makes... that's the difference between your average new moon and an eclipse moon - events that are happening around this time radiate their impact far out into the future, just like those big stones in the water.

Planet Venus is also moving into Scorpio at the same time. Venus is linked to relationships and money (values and value in other words), so expect new 'stuff' going on there too.

So what to do about all this? Not much! Just notice how the symbolism matches what's going on with you. And be aware of the power you have within situations to choose your response, instead of losing yourself in knee-jerk reactions. Sometimes there's not much we can do about circumstances, but we can always do something about where we stand in them; who we choose to be and how we choose to view things.

Scorpio is also about trust, confidence, secrets, the unknown, the afterlife, and again the point of no return...there's always a point of no return with Scorpio, a line that once crossed feels like there's no going back. Maybe though, it's just another way of saying we are updating ourselves and our circumstances to better reflect who we are now instead of who we once were. Always more than before, never less than before.

October 2014 Horoscopes

What an amazing month October promises to be...

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Awesome month for Aries! A lunar eclipse in your sign on the 8th sets the tone for months, sometimes years ahead. Eclipses usher in important new cycles, while events at the time will show the theme. For you it’s about a new you. Freedom and adventure are calling and you are responding. It’s about broadening horizons through travel or education and most of all by enjoying the journey. An outstanding solar eclipse on the 23rd is about a renewed sense of trust in the unknown; change is happening and you are willing to go with the flow, no matter how up close and personal it becomes.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
These are interesting times for you. There are two intensely powerful eclipses on the 8th and 23rd that symbolise significant new beginnings and developments. The first eclipse is about events and situations that serve to develop your inner-self relationship; for example your imagination, your mediation and reflections, intuition, your dreams - and also your sleeping pattern. The second eclipse is about developing your relationships with others. The effects are being felt all month and beyond, but particularly what happens around the 23rd is likely to be intense, memorable and have long-term effects in some key relationships (old and new), also in contracts and agreements.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
Your ruling planet Mercury retrogrades from the 4th (appears to move backwards) which suggests it’s a month of reconnection and reunion, (stand out dates are 10th, 15th and 25th). Two powerful eclipses on the 8th and 23rd indicates certain areas of your life are becoming intensely energised and active, with events full of long-term significance and big changes. The 8th lunar eclipse seems to be linked to love, fun, friendship, groups and gatherings, while the solar eclipse on the 23rd is about solutions, schedules, work, health and fitness. Mix this with Mercury retrograde and it indicates a welcome finish of unfinished business and a renewed focus on the here and now.
                                                                                                                                             
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
You are plugged in firmly to the moon and its cycles, so when eclipse time happens (8th and 23rd for October) you flow easily with the wrapping up of old situations (8th) and the beginning of new paths and directions (23rd) as it all makes sense to you. Renewing or updating existing aims and ambitions is the eclipse focus, and any restless, unsettled moods are about your impatience to get the ball rolling. The urge to adjust priorities (especially regarding home/family matters) is a strong eclipse theme, but what happens around the 23rd (maybe linking to romance, creativity or entertainment) holds the real message of the month; maybe for months to come.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Hold onto your hat Leo; two eclipses plus rare planet alignments means it’s a powerful, productive and passion-filled month. You are more energised, focused and willing to act on your aims and desires than ever before, and the lunar eclipse on the 8th suggests a strong urge for freedom and a change of routine; maybe you’re broadening horizons through travel or education, but whatever it is, you are seeking the road less travelled, an alternative route, and a unique approach. An exceptional solar eclipse on the 23rd is about deep-reaching, long lasting changes to accommodate this, linked to comfort zones, home and family matters.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s a lot of unavoidable backtracking, retreating or going over old ground, as your ruling planet Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from the 4th. This focuses on communication until the 10th, then finance and resources until the 25th, when a big turning point in events looks likely to move things forward. Adding momentum and long-term significance to all this are two eclipses (8th and 23rd) that usher in very important new beginnings in relationships, contracts and communication. To move forward, some doors must close, but have confidence in (rather than trying to control) the unknown territory you are stepping into.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
The powerful progress of last month continues during October with two important eclipses on the 8th and 23rd. The lunar eclipse on the 8th is especially significant for Libra; it suggests this is an important time in relationships, contracts and agreements, with current circumstances having a long-lasting impact somehow. Eclipses like these don’t happen every day, or even every decade, so take note of what happens around solar eclipse time on the 23rd, as your ruler Venus stands close by it in your finance and worth chart, meaning a new cycle of harmony and balance relative to resources and wealth is your priority now and for the long-term.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Scorpio is an all or nothing kind of sign, so you’ll understand that if I say it’s all happening for you during October, it really IS all happening; symbolised by an important new moon eclipse in your sign on the 23rd, about new (or renewal of) cycles, situations and events with long-term impact. The sun begins its annual journey through your sign that day, shedding much needed light on circumstances that have kept you in the dark; and love and security planet Venus also stands close by, indicating matters of the heart and your sense of stability have your full attention too. It’s powerful and empowering stuff.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Two eclipses on the 8th and 23th means it’s a memorable month with lots happening; you are pro-active, energised and inspired. Don’t trample your ideas and creative vision; follow through with faith first then action. Don’t act until you believe fully in what you’re moving towards, so settle doubts and ignore doubters (there’s no obligation to prove anything). The rare and powerful solar eclipse on the 23rd happens in the most spiritual part of your chart, which means reflection, alone time, meditation, space to breathe and connect with yourself all have a deeply nourishing, regenerating and healing effect on you. Make it a lifestyle choice.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Two potent eclipses this month indicate potential long-term change and transformation. On the 8th the lunar eclipse points to home and family matters, as well as comfort zones and emotional connections. Restless or unsettled moods mean you desire change but do not quite believe you are ready to receive yet, so the rest of the month is about moving your confidence more into line with your longings. The solar eclipse on the 23rd is an intensely powerful time with far-reaching effects. It’s about friendships groups and gatherings, others on your wavelength and what happens when you all get together. Action planet Mars in your sign in your sign from the 26th means you’re ready to roll.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
It’s an amazing eclipse month for Aquarius! Two eclipses (8th and 23rd) hitting your chart in very personal and profound ways, suggesting positive change and transformation coming  during October and influencing weeks, maybe months ahead, as new beginnings and directions gather momentum. The lunar eclipse on the 8th is about communication, information, beliefs and perspectives; events are opening your mind and your inbox with sudden dialogues, spontaneous conversation and power-packed exchanges that prepare the way for an intense, hard-hitting eclipse in your long-term aims and ambitions chart. The stakes feel high regarding work, reputation and status; lots of unknowns and uncertainty but watch how the path unfolds with faith. 

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Two powerful eclipses on the 8th and 23rd make this a pivotal month, with strong focus on finance, resources, travel and education. While there’s plenty happening all month that ties up loose ends and gets the ball rolling on new projects and plans, it’s events during the final week, with the potent solar eclipse on the 23rd and a big turning point or change of direction around the 25th, that seem full of long-term significance and impact. It’s quite possible that faith is being restored in a big way as the message for months ahead seems to revolve around renewal and rejuvenation; so rise from those ashes, Pisces the phoenix.

Full Moon in Pisces Conjunct Chiron - 9th September 2014

This annual full moon in the mystical, dreamy, sleepy, peace-loving sign of Pisces is an unusually strong healing moon, so go with the flow and get on the Pisces wavelength for the next couple of days, whether it’s through art, meditation, music, nature or a good snooze… surrender your senses to that unmistakable feeling of witnessing a sensational sunset, a smiling baby, or the power of your favourite music. You know that feeling - it’s uplifting, heart-opening, a recognition of oneness, and connection with something pure, profound, awesome and REAL - very real, yet indescribable, uncontainable, and ineffable.

What is being healed with this full moon is the idea that this energy, this Spirit, this experience, is somehow wispy and weak compared to our big, bold, rough and tumble world of logic and scientific certainty. Quite the opposite, it’s what holds us secure enough to create even a rough and tumble world, and it’s what holds us all together to play within that world. God’s glue.

This rare healing moon is about peeling back the layers of self-doubt and disbelief, to find underneath only the gentle velvet touch of unconditional Love and its oneness/awareness with all the universe. It’s who we each are underneath, in our own unique and magnificent ways. We often let ourselves peek into the mirror that is this physical universe, at the beautiful sunsets and babies and music that are reflected back to us, and we feel the appropriate awe and reverence of it all, but we often don’t realise it’s also us we are sensing. Oneness is a tricky concept; if you perceive magnificence ‘out there’ it’s your own magnificence you are feeling. Confused? Doubtful? Let the full moon in Pisces be your guide...

September 2014 Horoscopes

September already! Here are the horoscopes for this month...hope you enjoy and thanks for reading x

Aries
21st March – 20th April
So much is happening behind the scenes this month, which can mean you are the one working away from the spotlight, or the one left to wonder how things can work out for you (the answer is ‘like magic’). Old hurts and wounds might be reactivated, particularly at full moon time around the 9th, but the intention is for healing, so choose to make peace with things to benefit from these valuable vibes. Relationships, contracts or agreements get your attention, especially around the 23rd and 24th, under the Equinox and new moon, indicating the beginning of important new partnerships, and a new sense of harmony and balance.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
You are now in the right position to reap rewards of earlier work and effort. Keep your mind open and receptive to the flow of good things into your life and watch how the universe delivers. Your planet is Venus which loves to value people, places and things, and the full moon on the 9th is a symbol of the promise of much more of this to come; there are always ups and downs, and the key is to not take the down times personally. That’s a challenge after midmonth (especially around 24th) as it’s easy to focus on what felt unfair, but balance it by pondering your recent achievements.


Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
A recent time of rest and renewal has done wonders for your soul, meaning you feel more clear and connected than ever. Recognition and respect is coming your way (maybe long overdue), symbolised by the beautiful healing full moon in your ambition chart (around the 9th); and midmonth Mars, the planet of drive and desire, moves into your relationship chart, suggesting sharp and purposeful action around love, contracts and agreements. An AMAZING new moon at Equinox time on the 24th is about justice; a fair balance of the scales at last. It’s also about fun, entertaining and creative times that are here to stay for those who want and believe it.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Recent experiences felt enlightening and insightful, so in general you’re happier and more optimistic, and certain situations look more sorted and balanced as September gets underway. A powerful healing moon on the 9th is about concentrating on the journey rather than the destination; or the process rather than the outcome. Midmonth is about matters of the heart, and getting in touch with values and priorities in relationships, and discussions are detailed. A very important new moon on the 24th indicates a very important new start. You might be temporarily reclusive until emotionally settled about what that might mean for you.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Plans have needed patience for some time now; September shows that it has all been about good timing, and about having the confidence to hold your nerve until the time was just right. Midmonth you should be seeing some results about this, especially linked to home and family matters, and also about work and career plans. Energy builds to the powerful new moon on the 24th, which ushers in a new era for harmony and resonance in communication; if you have been asking for peace, fairness and justice in certain situations then this might be the start of something interesting.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s a powerful full moon in your relationship chart on the 9th that speaks of emotional healing. It’s about the power of compassion and acceptance to heal conflicts or pain, and about how criticism or negative judgments keep hurts and wounds open. Wishes are granted regarding solutions and reconciliations but it never happens from justifying or pushing your point (however right you may be). Trust your intuition midmonth as you are spot on and you can sense what lies behind metaphorical closed doors. Final week there’s a fabulous financial-themed new moon, and you might prefer your own company, in order to sort and process your thoughts.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Hold your nerve if things feel right to you at the moment, meaning don’t let anything cast a shadow over where you are on an issue or circumstance, as the light at the end of the tunnel is definitely getting bigger, and you’re moving in the right direction. You might see evidence of this in events from midmonth, as there’s a sense of balance and harmony with you that comes from choosing and moving with the courage of your conviction. A super-charged new moon in your sign on the 24th supports this, and suggests you are taking any further challenges in your stride.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
The right mind-set is so important and the planet pattern for the first half of the month (especially full moon time around the 9th) is all about soothing, calming and dissolving old hurts and regrets that might have held your attention on the past rather than your present and future. Pluto is your planet, and it changes direction on the 22nd, again symbolising a big turning point for you; it coincides with a balancing and harmonising new moon on the 24th which is great for relationships, especially friendship. It’s also time to make the effort with communication as this is all good groundwork to build from.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
There are choices to be made this month (in love and relationships?), but rather than waste time weighing pros and cons of each possible path (it’s too much logic and not enough heart), it might be more productive to ponder your values and what really matters to you in life. Making your decision from the confidence and clarity of self-awareness is easy because you know all the answers, it’s just a case of asking yourself the right questions. Mars, planet of desire and action, is in your sign from the 13th, symbolising how ready, willing and able you are to get the ball rolling on all this.  

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
It’s the kind of month where big changes and important new experiences are probable, not just possible, which might feel exhilarating and daunting in equal measure. To get the most out of this, trust your instincts as well as your logic as it’s the blending of the two that gives you the detailed picture. There’s a strong and sure new moon in your ambition and status chart on the 24th; which suggests significant new beginnings in store for those willing to keep their hearts and minds open. This particularly links to work and career, but includes anything right now where achievement matters a lot to you.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
As September gets underway your leadership skills are required, as well as your patience dealing with authority and authority figures. There’s a benevolent full moon in your resources chart on the 9th, which bodes well for income and purchases, and for sorting out stuff with others too, meaning actual ‘stuff’ and emotional. There’s a sense of fate or destiny at times this month, perhaps because there’s coincidence and synchronicity afoot in events and meetings. Make sure you speak your truth, as the wisdom of your experience is there to pass on to others, and (especially around new moon time on the 24th) your path holds great power of new potential right now.


Pisces
19th February – 20th March
It’s a big month for all relationships; in matters of the heart and also contracts or agreements. The full moon in your sign on the 9th is powerful regarding this. Events around that week can confound or heal you, and it’s how you see yourself in circumstances that will make all the difference. Meaning, if you can see how strong you are, despite any limitations, then conflicts heal. But focus on unfair treatment or justice not served, and a frustrating tyre spin effect occurs, and all efforts grind you down further. You have excellent support and back-up this month, and look for new, maybe swift developments (after midmonth, especially 24th).

Horoscopes for August 2014

Bit late with the horoscopes this month... here they are on super full moon day. I don't get that excited by super moons, just because they aren't as rare as other events in astrology that never get reported. But super moons are nice.
Annual full moon in Aquarius today... sign of friendship, groups, gatherings, teamwork, life choices and life styles. What is in the emotional spotlight for you on these themes just now?
Here's the scopes, Thanks for reading :)

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Despite any recent setbacks, despite slow movement of situations, even despite being pulled emotionally all over the place at times, you have the ability to stay focused on what really matters to you this month. Maybe that’s because you’re now more comfy with the unknown, and more willing to move forward for the sake of your dream or ideal (notice evidence of that around full moon time on the 10th). Basically it’s about not letting outside pressures or inner doubts cloud your clarity, and the new moon on the 25th speaks of great rewards for those who stay loyal to what feels real and right in their heart, not just their head.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
There’s a lot of focus on home and family matters for August, and you might notice how things revolve around the idea of comfort zones and about who or what is welcome in your private space. The planets certainly suggest differences of opinion or conflict of interests at times but that doesn’t mean it’s a ‘bad’ month; any low points will help to clarify and define your dreams and desires more fully (especially after the 15th and particularly around the 25th), suggesting there’s much more to gain than to lose by being yourself no matter what others have to say about it.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
There’s plenty of great conversation and enlightening information in store, especially up to midmonth; it’s easy to over-react or overdo things when tired or stressed though, so that’s the time to give yourself and others a break. The full moon on the 10th magnifies feelings about the emotional journey you’ve been on and how you’ve had no choice but to change your perspective and beliefs about so many things. The new moon on the 25th carries another important message about this: don’t get caught up in negative thinking. Fears or doubts can seem very real, yet in reality they remain just fears and doubts, to buy or not buy into.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
It’s time to get comfortable with recognition and profile-raising as there’s lots to gain right now. There’s an understanding being reached within yourself and a new sense of peace and harmony to experience as a result. That includes more balance (accept the help and support that comes your way). Also, the message of the rather mystical and philosophical new moon on the 25th is that a bit of faith goes an awful long way. Someone might reflect that truth back to you just when you need it most, so stay open to heartfelt advice (if it feels good it’s from the heart).

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Your intuition or gut instinct is something you can rely on in, so don’t forget to use it this month, perhaps around the full moon on the 10th that focuses on relationships, but especially the final week (especially 25th) when it’s important to separate fact from fiction and hopes from fears in matters involving finance and shared resources. Pressures or stress linked to extra responsibility around home and family situations might feel unwanted, yet
love planet Venus joins 3 other planets in your sign from the 12th, indicating increased energy, attention and movement (and therefore success) in what is important to you.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Don’t overthink things this month. Not easy when it’s your responsibility to make communication go well, and not easy when logical Mercury moves into your sign (15th) preferring efficiency, order, and for everything to utterly make sense in situations, but the message is about not backing yourself into a corner made of endless possibilities you have no control over. The powerful new moon in your sign on the 25th calls you to let go of mentally micro-managing scenarios, and instead allow situations to unfold more naturally. Go with the flow and expect the flow to support you and your wishes more often.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s a social and busy time for much of August, particularly up to and around midmonth; it’s all about friendship, support, parties, groups and gatherings. It’s a time to put yourself out there and be comfortable in the spotlight, especially as there’s likely to be a drama or two before the month is out. From the 23rd and especially around the 25th you are more likely to withdraw from the crowds; not in an anti-social way but instead to recharge batteries and give yourself time and space to process and reflect on what has happened throughout the month.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
For much of the month your energy and attention is directed toward career or long-term plans. Reputation, status and public image are all important to you now, as is finding balance and equality between your public and private life. Two planets, Mars and Saturn, meet on the 25th in your sign; it’s a slow build-up all month indicating slow-building stress and pressure in situations, and a sense that so much now is resting on your shoulders. However, a gentle and compassionate new moon on the 25th can soften the harsher effects of all this; just learn to let go and chillax in order to activate the moon magic.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Planets are meeting in your travel and education chart for much of the month, breathing life and energy into exciting new ideas and perspectives. Sagittarius is the philosopher of the zodiac, who prefers the wisdom of experience and the University of Life as a teacher, so the learning curves and emotional journeys of August are right up your street. There are important new beginnings indicated by the new moon on the 25th relating to career, aims and ambitions. With nebulous Neptune involved it might be a challenge to clearly define your vision at times, but this soft focus is so good for situations that feel hard, harsh or sharp.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There’s definite progress on difficult situations this month, though with progress comes change and new considerations, so allow time to settle with new ways of seeing and being in certain situations. Your planet is Saturn, which is associated with limits, boundaries, authority and commitments; and around the 25th Saturn is involved in a powerful meeting with mighty Mars, the planet of desire, action, movement and self-interest. It means it all mixes together; there’s committed action, desires with boundaries, and self-responsibility. Work with these positive expressions and transform any negative expressions (pressure to act, self-denial, suppressed desire, etc).

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
A lovely full moon in your sign on the 10th indicates a shift in the energy of certain situations; it’s about a change in dynamics, or the end of waiting or delays. It’s about seeing things differently and being within situations in new ways. This connects powerfully with the new moon on the 25th, which speaks of transforming problems and finding new paths that include compassion and acceptance as a comfort zone. There’s special or unique communication at that time too, as well as something very distinct and defined going on with your career or long term plans. Don’t settle for less or lack, relax into the idea of abundance and clarity.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Lots of your beliefs and perspectives are being challenged this month, which is made easier by your compassion and empathy for yourself and others. It means you know how to hold the courage of your conviction steady while allowing others to believe and perceive differently. Around the 7th there’s a magical connection to discover with others, while the powerful new moon on the 25th makes promises in relationships that maybe only you know how to deliver. There’s an important balancing and rebalancing act going on this month, so remember to receive as well as to give, and to listen as well as to talk.

July 2014 Horoscopes

Here's my horoscopes for July! Its all change with Jupiter, planet of expansion and opportunity changing signs from Cancer to Leo, and staying there for the next year. Find out below what that might mean for you (and there's more on the Jupiter change to come).

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Up to midmonth there’s news and communication of interest and time spent feeling more settled about home and family matters. There’s also a sense both of completion and renewal when it comes to long-term plans and ambitions. Then from the 16th lucky planet Jupiter moves into your creativity and entertainment chart for the next year. It means endless opportunities for fun and good times ahead, along with new creative projects and romance as it’s about anything that moves your heart and soul to expression. There’s a stunning new moon on the 26th with events at that time that echo and emphasise all this.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
While there may be conflicting interests and maybe a few emotional lows to balance the highs, there’s still an outstanding astrological indicator of fabulous times in store in the shape of Jupiter, planet of positive expansion, who begins a year long journey through your home and family chart from the 16th. Last time was around 12 years ago, so think back to what you went through then and how it all contributed to a more positive home and family experience today. An impressive new moon links up to Jupiter on the 26th, and is about a new vision relating to your home comforts and comfort zones.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
Jupiter is about good fortune, positivity and expansion and from the 16th it’s moving into your communication, news and information chart for a whole year. It’s a mega sign of opportunity and forward movement that can fill you with faith about your chosen path, your chosen partner, and your close relationships, and what happens around the 26th might give you a taster of this. July is also about sorting finances (especially first week and 22nd), romance (especially 12th), and work and career (final week). A change of mind sits well with the mood of the month so don’t be afraid go with the flow of unexpected updates to events.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
The sun is in your sign till the 22nd, which is a solid indication you’re ready to shine and meet the world on your wavelength (especially around the 9th). You might not feel like shining at times (maybe 4th, 12th, 22nd and 28th) as you are in the mood to clear old clutter and finish unfinished business whatever it takes, but it’s there, and this is emphasised by positive planet Jupiter moving into your finance and resources chart for the next year, from the 16th. Events around new moon time on the 26th might give you a glimpse of the sense of expansion and increase ahead that comes with Jupiter’s presence.

Leo
22nd July – 23rd August
What an inspiring month for Leo! The sun sparkles into your sign from the 22nd giving you a big creative boost, but bigger news is the arrival of Jupiter in your sign for the next year from the 16th. Jupiter indicates expansion, opportunity, renewed faith and self-confidence, and was last here 2002/3; so think back to then to see what good stuff got going. There’s a glorious new moon next to Jupiter in your sign on the 26th, indicating positive events that require faith and belief in your worthiness to receive; it’s all about accepting or allowing (not forcing) your abundance in.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s a turning point for career and ambition at the beginning of the month, when movement forward gets you looking forward again. Friendship and fun feels deep and meaningful (especially 4th, 12th, 22nd, 28th), and there’s an emphasis on communication midmonth when limits lift and things go your way. Adventurous planet Jupiter moves into the most spiritual part of your chart from the 16th for the next year, which indicates important experiences in store that nourish and nurture the very heart of who you are. Look to events around the 26th for a sense of this; if it’s positive and a good opportunity, that’s Jupiter.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Mars has been in your sign since last December, much longer than usual, which has meant more focused action and motivation (and passion, around the 12th) though sometimes also a feeling that if you didn’t do it yourself then nothing would happen. This month, Mars is moving on, indicating a change in this respect; also emphasised by positive and confident Jupiter moving into your friendship chart from the 16th (for the next year), suggesting there’s now more appreciative support for your dreams and desires, along with helpful opportunities and lucky breaks. Events around new moon time on the 26th might be giving you a taste of this.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Jupiter’s placing in your chart over the past year has indicated increased faith and confidence in yourself and the world in general, and there’s also been self-development, education and travel that has broadened your horizons and nurtured your adventurous spirit. From the 16th Jupiter is moving into your career and status chart for the next year. It indicates positive expansion and opportunity in this area of your life; profile-raising and recognition too, so it’s getting the credit you feel you deserve. What happens around the new moon on the 26th is all about this.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
It’s a momentous month for Sagittarius; from midmonth and for the next year, your ruling planet Jupiter (planet of positivity and opportunity) moves into the area of your chart linked to travel, education, and basically anything that stirs your sense of adventure. Jupiter here encourages positive expectations and beliefs that help not hinder your chosen path and purpose. It gives a strong sense of direction and the ability to keep the faith when circumstances get tough, which means it’s easier to stick with new plans and projects despite competition or opposition. A magnificent new moon on the 26th ushers in this new era with events that validate and support all this

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
So much revolves around partnership, contracts and agreements this month. It might be emotionally intense at times (maybe 4th, 12th, 22nd or 28th) yet also productive; as there’s the finishing up of some unfinished business, and a sense of renewal or rebirth in key relationships. From the 16th and for the next year, positive planet Jupiter indicates good opportunities and expansion linked to shared resources and deep, meaningful connections, so let go of your inner control freak and resist getting caught in power trips or messy dynamics, as the unknown might hold a treasure you’ve been looking for. Events around new moon time on the 26th underlines this.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
This time last year you wouldn’t have thought you could have fit in all the expansion and developments that your daily schedule has come up with, especially in the past 6 or 7 months, but somehow you manage and even enjoy it. From the 16th and for a whole year, that same sense of positive expansion is now reaching certain relationships, contracts and agreements. It’s a time of opportunity and recognition in those areas of your life, so get ready for developments (maybe starting with the new moon on the 26th?). Before that, there’s an adventure or two to appreciate, around and about the 12th.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Positive planet Jupiter has been in the most heart-shaped, heart-felt area of your chart for the past year, which symbolises how you’ve been in the mood to let the good times roll and to appreciate life’s sweetness when and where it presents itself. From the 16th and for the next year, Jupiter offers expansion and development to your daily life, work schedule and health and fitness routine. Jupiter represents that faith-filled inner gut feeling that drowns self-doubt, so choose its confidence and believe in what the feeling of wellbeing can open you to in life (Maybe events around new moon time on the 26th will give you a sense of this).

Full Moon in Sagittarius, 13th June 2014...

... this full moon is on Friday 13th June at 5.11am, UK time.

And what's it all about? well firstly, my perspective is that Friday 13th is just another day astrologically, it's not lucky or unlucky, so don't be put off by that date!
Next, a full moon is always a beautiful symbol of culmination or fulfilment; it indicates contentment and satisfaction relating to a finish line or completion of certain situations.... also it can indicate movement where there is inertia/stuckness, and a turning point where there is the call for new direction. 

Sagittarius is all about direction, and chosen paths, whether these are literal journeys or paths of belief and faith. This moon in Sagittarius is full of faith and promise about the road ahead. The challenge is to keep the faith when it comes to new opportunities and especially when it comes to opportunities to feel and express self confidence and self worth.

The writing below, by the wonderful Anita Moorjani, gets the moon in Sagittarius message across perfectly.... Sagittarius is the sign that enjoys learning and expanding through life experience more than books (although very at home in a classroom as it's about expansion and growth); so who better than Anita Moorjani's words of wisdom to fit the mood of the moon, and to offer authentic quality guidance on how to deal with what life throws us at this time (or any time!)
Happy full moon,
Namaste

"I understood that true joy and happiness could only be found by loving myself, going inward, following my heart, and doing what brought me joy. I discovered that when my life seems directionless and I feel lost (which still happens to me frequently), what it really means is that I’ve lost my sense of self. I’m not connected with who I truly am and what I’ve come here to be. This has tended to happen when I stop listening to my own internal voice and give my power away to external sources, such as TV commercials, newspapers, big drug companies, my peers, cultural and societal beliefs, and the like.
 
Previously when I felt lost, one of the first things I did was to search outside for answers. I looked to books, teachers, and gurus, in the hope that they’d provide me with the ever-elusive solution. That’s exactly what I did when I was first diagnosed with cancer. But I only ended up feeling even more adrift because I was giving my own power away again and again.
 
I FOUND THAT HAVING AN INSIDE-OUT VIEW MEANS being able to fully trust my inner guidance. It’s as though what I feel has an impact on my entire universe. In other words, because I’m at the center of my cosmic web, the Whole is affected by me. So as far as I’m concerned, if I’m happy, the universe is happy. If I love myself, everyone else will love me. If I’m at peace, all of creation is peaceful, and so on.
 
If things seemed challenging, instead of trying to change them physically (which is what I did pre-NDE), I began checking in with my internal world. If I’m stressed, anxious, unhappy, or something similar, I go inward and tend to that first. I sit with myself, walk in nature, or listen to music until I get to a centered place where I feel calm and collected. I noticed that when I do so, my external world also changes, and many of the obstacles just fall away without my actually doing anything.
 
What I mean by being “centered” is experiencing being at the center of my cosmic web, being aware of my position. This is really the only place any of us ever are, and it’s important to feel our centrality at the core of it.
 
But from time to time, I would forget my central place in the cosmos. I got caught up in all the dramas, contradictions, angst, and pain of the physical world and couldn’t see myself as one of the expanded, magnificent, infinite beings we all truly are.
 
Luckily, I realized at those times that we never really become disconnected from the center. Rather, we temporarily lose sight of it and don’t feel the sense of peace and joy that comes from it. We get caught up in the illusion of separation and can’t see that happiness and sadness go hand in hand—like light and dark, yin and yang. Our sense of disconnection is simply part of the illusion of duality that makes it difficult to see oneness forming out of perceived separation. But getting centered means seeing through this and once again feeling our infinite place at the center of it all . . . at the center of oneness.
 
I still had the visceral knowledge that we’re all one with the universe. Therefore, I knew that even while I’m in my physical body, whether I’m aware of it or not, I am at the center of the great cosmic web that is the universe! This is the same as realizing my magnificence and my connection to the Infinite." ~ Anita Moorjani, from Dying To Be Me
