June 2016 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Your ruler Mars has been retrograde (appearing to move backwards) since mid-April, meaning it’s been a time of readjustment and/or redirection in order to continue doing what matters most to you. Mars is moving forward again at the end of the month (30th), so June is about being on the way to an important turning point or change in direction. And on the way some situations will press your buttons or become a sore point (perhaps related to events late February?); if so, it’s a message to accept what you want can be a reality (if you don’t accept it, why should anyone else?). Noteworthy dates in all this are 5th, 9th, 12th, 15th and from 18th.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
There’s heavy focus on money, security, values and self-worth all month, especially new moon time on the 5th which is about important new beginnings on these themes. Certain situations seem fixed and inescapable during June, so it’s up to you to provide the flexibility. In other words, be the tree that bends not breaks in the wind. Appearances can be deceptive too, so don’t take anything or anyone at face value (easiest around 26th). From the 17th discussion and learning becomes increasingly important when Venus moves into your house of communication. You want to inform and be informed, and you’re in the mood to seek harmony, even when full moon solstice tension peaks (20th).

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
It’s your time of year. The new moon in your sign on the 5th suggests it’s a particularly powerful time for new beginnings and for building strong foundations in key areas of your life, and the sun in your sign until the 20th, is always about events that encourage your creative spirit to shine and be seen. The planets suggest this is not the easiest of months though, as they show sticking points and limits reached (2nd, 18th, 20th, 22nd); yet this only helps you focus more sharply and more clearly towards what you want. So bless the fog and frustrations for the sweet clarity you find as a result.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
For much of the month certain things appear beyond your direct control that you just have to go with the flow of and have faith in the bigger picture about. The new moon on the 5th speaks strongly of this, with the message that new beginnings are inevitable, especially involving communication and information. From the 17th love and harmony planet Venus moves into your sign, and on the 20th there’s an uplifting, adventure-seeking full moon on the day the sun moves into your sign (summer solstice). It all suggests that some situations are reaching a peak or coming to a head, and more choice and control is on the way.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Basically the message of the month is that you know what to do for progress and development and so do it. Everyone around you has an opinion or new information about it that they are ready to share with you (especially around new moon time on the 5th). But at some point it’s time to let go of discussion and start valuing your own wisdom about it all. The seasonal marker of summer solstice along with an adventurous full moon on the 20th is about winds of change that gets things moving. Mars ends retrograde motion and moves forward from the 30th, which means momentum is building in the right direction.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
It’s a peak or pivotal month in long term plans and ambition, especially regarding career, status and reputation, but also connecting to home, relationships and contracts or agreements. New moon on the 5th is about new beginnings in all this, while full moon on the 20th is about things coming to a head, or moving into fulfilment. Certain events do seem inevitable and unavoidable this month, but Saturn and Neptune join forces to dissolve pressure and limits (especially time limits). Communication can make you sensitive, and touch sore points or press buttons (maybe connects to mid-late February?), but there’s healing if you’re open and receptive to solutions (meaning decide you deserve to receive them).

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
This is the kind of month where you can reap the rewards of previous hard work (also known as good preparation).  Things are coming into alignment, or clicking into place at this time that couldn’t have happened before now, so there might be a feeling of fate or destiny that comes with some events (maybe noticeable around 2nd, 5th, 12th, 27th and 30th). You’re expanding horizons through travel or learning for much of the month, and integrating new ways of seeing and thinking about your world. From the 17th and especially after the 20th, you’re ready to focus on long-term plans and ambitions, especially career plans. Success has a way of making you want to look forward.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
It’s a month of turnarounds and turning points, although it might be next month before you see the full effect of it all and feel momentum building in a really strong and tangible way. Mars is one of your planets, meaning it indicates significant happenings for you, and Mars has been retrograde (appearing to move backwards) since mid-April. It has been a period where action and activity has been about going over old ground, perhaps at a slower pace, or different direction. This will change from the 30th, but before that there’s some old wounds to heal (with links to events in February?), and some compassion to give yourself, and others.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
It’s a relationship-themed month, whether it’s romance, family, work or business related. And for a freedom loving being like yourself, some events are challenging to experience as they seem too fixed, unchangeable or rigid (even stuck fast). The challenge can bring reward though, as less movement means more stability and focus, and therefore more clarity when you need inspiration and ideas the most (especially around 5th, 13th, 18th, 22nd). There’s a full moon in your sign on the 20th, full of rainbows and promises, and it’s up to you to keep the faith about it all. Message for the month is don’t forget to breathe (tension can do that), and find some fresh air to feel freedom.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There’s lots that feels out of your control this month, and plenty of demands, yet the chaos you expect to happen doesn’t. Possibly because there’s not that much flexibility about how things can go, which provides order and direction. Your ruler, sensible Saturn, meets nebulous Neptune again this month (last time was last November). It points to more challenges around communication, sibling relationships, and/or your neighbours and local area, but the positives are easy ice-breakers, blank slates, and bad habits dissolved. It’s a good time for a stock take of your life, as you aren’t attached to what needs to go, compassionate towards your mistakes, and have a weakness for celebrating your success.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
This month there’s enough synchronicity and serendipity in situations to challenge the idea that events are random or coincidental; meaning you will miss out on so much if you reject the idea that there’s a touch of magic in the air for you just because you can’t explain it or don’t understand how. The times you feel ‘in the zone’ matters right now. When all the traffic lights turn green as you approach and the checkout queues work in your favour; it’s real and measurable, and the more you notice it the more it happens. It’s the universe reminding you that there’s purpose to your path, so experiment and enjoy.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Your planet is Neptune, and this month Neptune is at the heart of the astrology pattern; meaning you get to the heart of what matters to you despite any obstacles or limits. New moon in Gemini on the 5th is about new beginnings linked to home and family, and whatever makes you feel safe and emotionally settled. Neptune connects with practical, sensible Saturn (18th), which suggests you’re wanting everything to feel completely planned out and feasible right now which isn’t easy, or necessary, as it’s only the next obvious step that needs to be workable at any time; so rest of month (especially from 20th) is about letting go of your doubts about what’s possible.

May 2016 Horoscopes


Hello! Here are my horoscopes for you for this month. Just a reminder that I do offer astrology and tarot readings, you can book from my website bondwiththemoon.co.uk  (you can also message me to tailor a reading just for you). Happy May to you all :) 


Aries
21st March – 20th April
Work and career are in the spotlight this month, in very constructive ways. There’s a flow to find, a groove to settle into; where things transform and unfold around you with the greatest of ease. From around 6th to 15th is especially strong for this. Action-orientated Mars is your planet, and it’s still retrograde (appearing to move backwards) this month. There are huge positives to this, including returning or reconnecting with old places, projects or faces from the past; also turning points or changes in direction that expand and broaden your experience. Notice events around full moon time on the 21st for this, as Mars is igniting and inspiring action and movement in powerful ways.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
No messing around this month, Taurus. Get your head down and get stuck into projects, creative work, travel and learning. It’s a wonderful month for you, symbolised by the fresh, earthy and practical new moon in your sign on the 6th. It means new beginnings, and a renewed sense of purpose and confidence (especially from 9th), along with the feeling that certain things are just meant to be. It’s not all straightforward however, and at times you feel pulled in different directions, but when you remember your sense of security is so sound, then all the activity can enliven and inspire you, rather than deplete or deprive you.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
A sense of divine destiny and purpose pervade the month. It’s as if a complex weaving of threads from past, present and future are finally pulling together and converging into a pattern you recognise, value, and want more of. Don’t get in your own way with doubts, go with the flow (especially from around the 6th to the 15th), and notice how the universe always gets the timing spot on, with miracles of synchronicity playing into the most mundane down to earth details. A remarkable relationship-themed full moon on the 21st is a focal point for all this, just as the sun moves into your sign for the next few weeks.
                                                                     
Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
The new moon on the 6th indicates new beginnings linked to key relationships, friendships, groups and gatherings. It’s busy in this area of your life all month (especially from 6th to 15th), and there’s important communication and information (8th, 14th and 23rd). This new moon also links to hopes and dreams for the future, and as the planets are in exactly the right mood for making wishes come true (especially 6th, 9th, 14th, 21st) make sure you stay in the right mood to receive. Not always easy as there are challenges, including sticking points and stalemates (especially around 26th) but it’s worth the effort of keeping your heart and mind open and ready for a miracle.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
First half of May you’re in practical mode; work, finances, career or long-term plans have your attention. New moon on the 6th is about new beginnings relative to all this, which might mean revisiting some goals or projects from the past but it’s still a new beginning as it’s about who you are now, not then. Delays, blocks, or feeling blocked creatively are all indicated by planet patterns for this month but it’s not a sign to give up, just work with it not against it. Busy activity around full moon time on the 21st might move some stuck situations, or provide some welcome distractions until things are ready to move. 

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
May is a month for experiencing a change of direction in your approach to certain situations (noticeable from 9th and 23rd); towards renewed faith in yourself and towards looking forward and moving forward instead of looking to the past or re-treading old, familiar ways as you have been recently. May is also about expanding horizons through travel, or education and learning; particularly if you’re returning to it in some way, perhaps rediscovering a subject, renewing a project, or revisiting a favourite destination (6th, 8th, 14th, 22nd link to this). Sometimes, especially by final week (26th), there are sticking points or stalemates that can make you second guess earlier progress, yet progress continues.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
It’s a month of change and transformation, and it’s likely involving something you’ve been waiting a while for. There’s support and assistance available when you need it, especially at the beginning of May, and it’s useful and practical help, that leads to doors opening and to great new opportunities (notice events around 8th, 9th, 14th and 21st for this). It’s the sort of month where end up with the new job, get the promotion, or get the business opportunity, even though it’s also the kind of month where you might feel you’re driving with the brakes on at times. Just shows that things don’t have to be perfect in order to work out well.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
There are a few planets retrograde (appearing to move backwards) this month, including both your ruling planets (Mars and Pluto). It means changes of direction and unfinished business; perhaps the past is more prominent in your mind, or a message or convo needs repeating. Whatever it is, there’s also a fabulous new harmony in relationships to tap into (especially from 6th to 16th). This is love and romance but also friendship or business, as our soulmates appear in many forms. It’s a productive month; boxes are ticked, and long lists too, so hold your nerve through any limitation or restriction as it’s worth the hassle.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
You might not always feel the most confident you’ve ever felt this month (especially final week), yet the planets clearly suggest this is a time when some long-term plans and ambitions are moving forward whether you’re ready or not (especially related to work). There’s a wonderfully supportive and harmonious vibe around all of May, so the message is don’t wait for perfection there’s no time like the present. It’s a down to earth kind of month; it’s practical and industrious, yet serendipity sparkles brightly enough to make you wonder why you ever doubted yourself or circumstances in the first place (especially 6th, 9th, 14th, 21st and 22nd).

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
It’s an amazing month of change and transformation for you, indicated by a new moon on the 6th of rebirth, renewal and refreshment; particularly linking to creativity, entertainment and matters of the heart. The planets speak of stability and continuity despite some quite significant changes of mind and direction throughout May, so relax and be receptive to the natural cycle of events, allowing yourself to trust the bigger picture and your place within it. The 8th, 9th and 14th are more stand out days for this. Also, all month, and especially from 22nd, there are links to March or last August, and what feels like a test of faith likely brings golden opportunity.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There’s loads of activity around home and family for much of the month, starting with a new moon on the 6th that speaks of new beginnings, reconnections, renewals and updates that are ongoing all May, but especially around 8th, 9th, and 14th. There are important turning points and some changes of direction too from the 9th, especially the adventurous full moon time from the 21st. This full moon focuses on movement and momentum involving friendships, gatherings, group support and teamwork. There are certain limits or restrictions that might challenge you (especially during final week) but expansion and progress is the shape of things to come.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
For much of May, especially up to midmonth, there’s lots of focus on new or renewed communication, relationships, and involvement with groups and gatherings. New moon on the 6th spotlights the new beginnings, and there’s an unusually smooth harmony and flow with all this that firstly brings you a welcome sense of stability and security, and secondly brings developments, progress and expansion (it’s not all straightforward, but it is easy to run with changes). From around the 20th the focus shifts to long-term plans, status and reputation (especially work and career). There are challenges with this, and what happened in March or last August might be relevant too.

April 2016 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Planet Venus (love and finances) enters your sign from the 5th, indicating instant attraction (especially around 12th and 22nd), bold intentions and impulsive moves. The new moon in your sign (7th) is about powerful new beginnings and radical transformations, especially in the realm of career, status, reputation, and long-term ambition. It also applies to you as an individual; whether it’s a new style or new approach there’s a unique path or course of action unfolding with your name clearly all over it. Your ruler Mars supports all this by retrograding (appearing to move backwards) from 17th until August; indicating turning points, revisits and reviews linked to travel, education, beliefs and perspectives.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
This is a powerful month for you Taurus. Steady constructive expansion and transformation is indicated, especially midmonth; though events in and around new moon (7th) and full moon (22nd) might make you question this, as things can happen unexpectedly, and unpredictably (not necessarily unwelcome though). Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) in your sign on the 28th, which means turning points in communication, or a change of mind or in approach from you. Venus, your ruling planet, moves into your sign (30th) which suggests strong self-worth and being a magnet for harmony and prosperity.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
The message of the month is don’t get too focused on obstacles as they won’t affect what’s unfolding in the long-term. In general things have been improving for some time, and the planets suggest this progress remains steady, secure, and well grounded (meaning you aren’t imagining the improvement). New moon on the 7th is about new beginnings and radical transformation linked to friendship, groups, and deepening support for your hopes and dreams (also 9th, 12th, 19th, 22nd). Midmonth is secure and stable (14th, 18th) with a key turning point for relationships from 17th. Mercury retrogrades from the 28th, so go with a change of mind, direction, communication or information.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
This month (especially around new moon time on the 7th) brings the awareness that certain relationships and emotional connections are not the comfort zone they used to be (especially linking to career or ambition). It’s because situations are evolving; so relationships will transform or rebirth, or they clear the way to welcome a new updated version.  Either way change can bring upheaval and a sense of loss, but April has very supportive planet patterns, enhancing feelings of security and wellbeing, and encouraging constructive progress (particularly midmonth and 22nd). The past meeting present is also an important theme, especially around communication, information, status and ambition (notice 17th, 18th and 28th for this)

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There’s a breakthrough new moon on the 7th in the faith and belief area of your chart. It suggests new ways of seeing the same situation brings different results, so if there’s been a sticking point or stalemate, then things might get moving (also 9th, 12th, 17th or 22nd).  While travel and education are in the spotlight again for April, there’s also an increasing focus on career, status and reputation. It’s a month to feel proud of achievements and celebrate progress (especially 14th, 18th, 30th), and to feel the courage of your convictions regarding a change of mind or change of direction (especially from 17th and 28th).

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
You are on firm foundations for April. The planets indicate secure, steady, expansive progress in general. Your ruler Mercury turns retrograde (appears to move backwards) from the 28th, which symbolises an important change of mind or change of direction (perhaps both) that you’re ready for, with situations revolving around reviews, reconnection, repetition or retreat.  Leading up to this there’s a breakthrough new moon on the 7th indicating sudden or unexpected new beginnings and endings especially linked to shared resources and creative projects (also around 19th and 22nd). Matters of the heart deepen and require trust from 19th, and until August you’re returning to the past somehow in home and family matters.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
The sun and Venus light up your love-life during April, especially around a new moon (7th) of new beginnings in relationships, and new or renewed contracts and agreements too. Home and family priorities are highlighted, and the planets suggest there’s no softly-softly approach to situations; it’s about radical transformation with instant impact (especially 7th and 19th to 22nd). Midmonth there’s a steady, earthy vibe of firm foundations and reliable progress, which is constructive for change and conducive for enjoying some fruits of your labours. Mars retrogrades from the 17th, so there’s also a returning to, or reviewing of, old ground in relationships; particularly in communication and information.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
The annual full moon in your sign on the 22nd symbolises significant events coming to a head or reaching a turning point this month (especially 7th, 14th, 19th and 22nd). Stuck situations or stalemates might begin to move or improve too. The planets are highlighting relationships, contracts, health and fitness, occupation and daily schedules in all this. Some changes this month have been a long time coming, some are unexpected and some have a particular sense of destiny or purpose (especially around the 18th). With a number of planets retrograding (appearing to move backwards) you might be retreating or re-treading old ground on certain issues, and there’s value in doing so.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
A revolutionary new moon of creativity and vision on the 7th indicates the launch of new projects and/or the transformation of existing plans. If you’ve felt creatively blocked, this is the month that might make all the difference (particularly 22nd). Romance, fun and entertainment are also highlighted in the same way, because enjoying your heart’s desire is the key to moving energy and going with your flow (especially around 19th). Midmonth Mars (planet of action and inspiration), retrogrades in your sign (appears to move backwards) until august 22nd. This points to big changes in priorities and approach, and maybe past meets present for some (good) reason.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
The new moon on the 7th suggests important change and transformation in home and family matters, with radical make-overs, expansion, and changes in priorities over the coming weeks or months. Some of this might unfold in unexpected or unpredictable ways, and it all links to rebirth or renewal in yourself too. The new moon (7th) and full moon (22nd) indicate a more challenging experience of all this, with twists and turns and ups and downs in events, and with others, that can take time to process and integrate. But there are plenty of moments this month where the inherent stability and integrity of your life, inside and out, shines through strongly and sweetly (especially 12th, 14th, 18th).

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
You’re pulling no punches when it comes to communication this month. People who know you are used to your latest approach but those who are not familiar with your style might need time for your message to settle in. New moon on the 7th suggests new beginnings (and endings) all month that revolve around communication and information. It’s about freedom of speech, unusual conversation and deep, transformative questions and answers. Mighty Mars, planet of action and drive is retrograde from the 17th until August, indicating important turning points in communication, as well as changes in direction or priorities, when it comes to friends, groups and gatherings.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
It might feel like a make or break month at times, as certain situations push your patience and challenge your faith in the bigger picture, but in general there’s a certainty at the heart of things that everything always works out somehow, no matter how it appears along the way. You don’t mind breaking the mould and breaking with routine this month (especially 7th, 9th, 19th, 22nd). Mars retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from the 17th, till August, suggesting plans or ambitions change direction or end up on the backburner. Remember it’s temporary and there’s much value to be gained from this stage of the journey.

March 2016 Horoscopes

Better late than never, here are the horoscopes for this month!! (Mercury is not even retrograde, I have no excuse for forgetting to post till now!). How has your month gone so far, did I get it right?

Aries
21st March – 20th April
Mars moves into your beliefs and perspectives chart from the 6th, indicating a broadening of horizons and a spiritual journey. Perhaps it’s via travel or education, or just the latest learning curve, but the 14th, 20th (when the sun moves into your sign), and especially final week relates strongly to this. As do two powerful eclipses on the 9th and the 23rd, which are about events holding long-term significance. Solar eclipse on the 9th says stop tripping yourself up with self-doubt or self-denial and go with the flow of positive feelings and insights instead. The lunar eclipse on the 23rd is about emotional turning points and new phases in relationships, contracts and agreements.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
Lots of focus on fun, friendship, groups and gatherings for much of the month, with significant events that move you forward and feel fulfilling. It’s all indicated by a powerful solar eclipse on the 9th that speaks of new beginnings in these areas of life that might initially require you to hold your nerve or stand your ground but are ultimately expansive and productive. Midmonth your ruler Venus is in on this, adding the power of your values and a sparkle to attraction. Lunar eclipse on the 23rd is about a new phase in your spiritual journey, and in health and fitness (maybe it’s all linked)

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
Lots of focus on long-term aims and ambition this month; particularly revolving around status, reputation and career. The planets are gathering in this area of your chart in a significant way, including Mercury (your ruler) from the 5th, and Venus (relationship and receptivity) from the 12th. A solar eclipse there on the 9th is about events during March that can shape aims and ambitions for this future. The lunar eclipse on the 23rd has similar meaning, but focusing towards fun, friendship, creativity, and links to groups or teams. You’re feeling single-minded when it comes to relationship priorities, and there’s an important turning point due in this around the 25th.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Your sign has a unique affinity for the moon and its cycles, and there are two powerful eclipses this month (9th and 23rd) that are indicators of significant events with potential for long-term impact. Sometimes these events aren’t very dramatic or even very noticeable, but they can be a reason to do things differently, or be a starting point for a whole new direction. They are also doorways for opportunities to build on past progress, and the solar eclipse on the 9th is about this related to learning, and the broadening of horizons. Then important communication linked to long-term ambition and plans (especially career) might be exchanged around lunar eclipse time on the 23rd.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There are two eclipses this month. They are powerful indicators of progress, development, new beginnings, and changes in direction. The solar eclipse (9th) speaks of events during March that can trigger profound emotional healing in longstanding situations. Issues around trust and/or intimacy become important, as do finances and security. The lunar eclipse (23rd) might feel lighter and brighter for you as it’s about changing perspective or view of things; sometimes quite literally via travel or education, but especially through communication. All this coincides with Spring Equinox (20th), which is a time of year that suits your nature, and always refreshes your sense of clarity and passion.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
The planets show it’s all going on at once during March, which can overwhelm your urge for order and efficiency if you forget that you enjoy the creative conflict in organising chaos. There are two important eclipses (9th and 23rd) which are about situations unfolding with long-term impact. The first eclipse links to new turning points in relationships, contracts and agreements; the second is about things coming to a head related to self-worth, values, income, and purchases. Some situations this month can’t be sorted all at once; some can’t be sorted without opening your mind and/or heart to new possibilities. Either way, mess and muddle can be part of the perfect path.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
As March begins there’s a lot you feel prepared for, but some things you don’t feel ready for. There’s an emphasis on seeking solutions (and finding them) especially around solar eclipse time (9th), and midmonth. Eclipses are important because they indicate events with long-term significance, and there’s a second eclipse (23rd) with extra importance because it’s in your sign, and also because it coincides with events that challenge your current perception of yourself; especially in key relationships. It’s like a reboot or update to your system, with a temporary pause in connection and communication while restart occurs. After that you feel ready for anything.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
There’s a bunch of planets, including a powerful solar eclipse (9th) in the most creative zone of your chart this month. It means this is the perfect time to learn about Law of Attraction and your innate power to manifest your dreams into reality (by thinking about what you want; not what you don’t want). It means lots of activity around projects and plans, peppered with plenty of opportunity for romance and fun; with a sense of ‘destiny’ or déjà vu in the mix too. There’s also a second eclipse on the 23rd which symbolises significant situations coming to a head involving justice, fairness, balance and equilibrium.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Mighty Mars, planet of action and momentum is in your sign from the 5th, so be crystal clear with yourself about what you want; especially during the final week when you start to restructure or re-establish your role in certain situations. There are two big eclipses on the 9th and 23rd, indicating events with potential to shape things long-term in a significant way. Solar eclipse on the 9th suggests new beginnings and turning points relating to home, family, your past, and your comfort zone. Lunar eclipse on the 23rd is about events coming to a head, with new phases related to friendship, fun, groups and gatherings.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There are two eclipses in March. Eclipses indicate events holding long-term significance and purpose. The first on the 9th deals in a big way with communication and information exchange and lots of planets currently in this area of your chart indicates more energy and activity for these situations too; key dates are 9th, 11th, 14th, and 17th. The second eclipse on the 23rd is about turning points and new phases linked to status and ambition, with emphasis on home and family and comfort zones. Your ruler Saturn is retrograde from the 25th, till August, indicating you’re restructuring and reorganising in a significant way. Don’t resist your process.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
Two eclipses during March (9th and 23rd) suggest this is a month in which events have long-term significance or deeper meaning and purpose, especially in relation to certain areas of your life. The solar eclipse on the 9th takes place in your self-worth and income chart which means your values, self-esteem, and relationship with money are highlighted areas. Plenty of other planets are involved too, which increases the activity and momentum in situations (especially 12th, 14th, 17th, 20th). The full moon eclipse (23rd) is about communication, information, and learning that inspires important changes in your perspective or mind-set; and a long-term learning curve comes to a head.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Much of the planet action revolves around Pisces during March, which suggests this could be a standout month for you. On the 9th it’s the first of two eclipses, and it’s in your sign. It’s a solar eclipse, indicating important new beginnings unfolding with long-term impact. There’s a balancing act between nourishing your own needs, and putting time in to expand partnerships, contracts and agreements with others, and this is emphasised by the lunar eclipse on the 23rd which speaks of turning points linked to self-worth, income and shared finance. Stand out dates for harmony and romance are 12th and 14th, while 5th and 25th are productive, if pressured.

New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Pisces, 8th/9th March 2016
















Just before 2am UK time on 9th March, there’s a powerful new moon (new moon = new beginnings) along with an eclipse (eclipse = events with long-term significance) in the sign of Pisces (blending, solutions, magic, miracles, faith, dreams, emotions, art, healing and Spirituality).

For a few days before and a few days after that culmination point, the energy is especially heightened; moods are intensified and events seem to take on extra significance or urgency.
Events around this eclipse revolve around Pisces themes such as:
-     Going with the flow (doesn't mean keeping the peace to avoid argument, and does mean going with the flow of your dreams and true nature),
-          Surrender (doesn't mean give up on yourself, and does mean get out of your own way)
-          Melting resistance or defences
-          Forgiveness of your own or other’s mistakes or imperfections
-          Heartfelt interactions with others, overflowing emotions, and the power of having a good cry
-          Magic and miracles as normal everyday life (they actually are normal, everyday occurrences)
-          Art, music, dancing (anything to do with feet is Pisces related!)
-          Spirituality, meditation, dreamwork, daydreams, or anything that puts you in touch with the untouchable, non-physical realms and states.

Eclipses are also about the temporary overshadowing of something by something else. It might feel like your dreams and desires are being overshadowed or blocked, but remember it’s temporary and your dreams and desires remain alive and well despite all that, and are nourished by your positive attention on them. 

The message is to not allow any of the above Pisces themes to be drowned out, or to allow them to drown out something very important to you, as you miss out on the wonderful creative heightened positive energy carried on the eclipse wave.

Working at staying centred, grounded and in tune with yourself (rather than being swayed by moods or currents of the outside world) helps to not be distracted or overshadowed by negative events or obstacles, and is the key to getting the best out of any powerful astrological event.

Meditation, extra sleep, spending time in or around water are all Pisces ways of grounding and recharging. The qualities of opposite sign of Virgo is also relevant - the desire to sort things out, clear clutter and improve efficiency is strong now, and with Jupiter, planet of expansion and opportunity is currently in Virgo, the increased opportunity to do so is of great value.

The general pattern of planets for this eclipse indicates a time of deep emotional connection with what really matters to you, from the inside out. Anything that happens over the eclipse period is for that reason, regardless of what it appears to be. It’s a time when Love can triumph and the power of kindness and compassion (especially towards yourself in current situations) can dissolve defenses and blocks. It’s a time for long-held hopes, dreams and wishes to start to come true, triggering events that will unfold fully in the long-term; over weeks, months and even years to come.

Virgo Full Moon 22nd February 2016

It's a full moon when the sun and moon stand opposite each other in the zodiac, and today at around 18.20pm here in the UK the Virgo moon reaches its most opposite position from the Pisces sun. 

The full moon symbolises the coming together and alignment of opposites - it's a time when situations composed of seemingly irreconcilable differences can find some balance and connection.

Virgo is the sign that appreciates detail and definition, while Pisces is just fine with a thumbnail sketch. Virgo believes it's the little things that matter, while Pisces prefers a soft focus filter. Pisces lives for the experience of 'oneness' (falling in love, appreciating a sunset or piece of music, etc) while Virgo enjoys categorising (everything has its place).

Both very different signs, yet with elements that can work together and co-create brilliantly if both sides are incorporated in positive ways. 

Notice during the days before and after any full moon where this balancing of opposites is taking place for you right now; within the self and in outside circumstances, and appreciate what the movement into alignment moves within you and around you.

February 2016 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
First week is about gaining some clarity on certain situations linked to work ambitions or long-term creative plans. It involves stepping away from power struggles, especially around the 6th, and holding onto your love of professionalism and an easy life. New moon on the 8th is about new participation with groups and teams, as well as friends who you really click with. Again, it’s about choosing to keep on track with what you want in the long-run, rather than reacting or over-reacting to others temporary moods or opinions. After the 19th and especially the final week you’re moved powerfully by your own moods, which works well when focused on what you want.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
How you see things, your view of the world and yourself has been changing dramatically over recent years, and again this month there might be events that transform or revolutionise your opinions and beliefs, sometimes suddenly or unexpectedly. New plans with partners (whether in personal or professional relationships) come into focus around the 8th, and it’s ok if it doesn’t seem easy at first as the rest of the month is about smoothing things out and finding the flow. Links to groups and gatherings are important in this somehow; perhaps it’s where your creativity opens easiest. Notice this around the emotionally defining full moon on the 22nd.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
You can achieve a lot during Feb, especially the first week when the planet patterns speak of your focus and ability for intense concentration of effort; also your discipline and patience dealing with change/transformation. New moon on the 8th is about new ways of seeing things (e.g. travel or education), and integrating new ways of doing things. You’re also reaching for balance, such as between home/work, or private/public life, and events around the final week might bring this to a head. It might also bring creative or romantic inspiration, as this is a month of open hearts and infinite imagination.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
You are the natural nurturer of the zodiac, someone who gets emotionally connected easily, and who sincerely cares. Sometimes you take on too much because of this, and then you feel no option but to shut down and get cautious about opening up again. February has a lot of demands on your time that might trigger this (especially first week and midmonth), but the key is stepping back before you reach your limit. Recognising earlier when it’s time to replenish and nourish yourself means you’ll be refreshed for getting the most out of this magical month; especially events around the sharing and caring full moon on the 22nd.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Lots of focus on your relationships, contracts and agreements this month, with a supportive new moon on the 8th that symbolises new beginnings with significant others. You might not be up for fully sharing your agenda or revealing motives until later in the month, but co-operation and collaboration are calling you, symbolised by communication planet Mercury and harmony-seeking Venus also arriving in your relationship chart (13th and 17th), indicating events that encourage bridge-building and transparency. Your mood moves much more to openness from the 19th; especially under the soft-hearted yet sensible full moon energy on the 22nd.
Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
You’re in problem-solving mode for much of the month. The new moon on the 8th is a doorway for new solutions, and there’s helpful information or communication from the 13th. Those who are in harmony with your aims are more visible to you from the 17th, and you’re more receptive to some brilliant new ideas then too. From the 19th it’s very much about relationships, partnerships, contracts and agreements. Events last November (approximately) seems relevant to this, and there’s a really important full moon in your sign on the 22nd that symbolises things both coming to a head relationship-wise, and moving forward.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
First week might require some deep breaths (especially 6th), as tricky dynamics dominate certain situations, and it’s tempting to get pulled into power struggles or control dramas. Seriously, rise above it all (even though you might be right!), and you’ll end up feeling pleased with yourself in the long run. The new moon on the 8th is about new beginnings related to creative projects, fun, romance and entertainment. From then it’s easier to stay in the here and now rather than get lost in the past or anticipating the future. Your ruler Venus catches this vibe from the 17th, which means you’re feeling good to go with rest of February’s flow.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Mighty Mars is one of your ruling planets and it’s still in your sign during February. This indicates huge reserves of strength and energy available to you when you need it; meaning current situations are making high demands on you physically, mentally and/or emotionally (most noticeable during first week of Feb). A new moon on the 8th is about new beginnings linking to home and family, and also about how comfortable your comfort zones are right now. From midmonth and especially final week, the focus moves to the healing power of fun and friendship, which is a potent combination around the 22nd during an enchanted and restorative full moon.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
Some situations might feel undone or like unfinished business up to midmonth, and yet it feels like the perfect place to leave things open to resume at a later date. It also leaves you to focus more fully on other situations that you want more immediate fulfilment on. Generous Jupiter has positive links to your income and resources chart (especially 10th), and communication is more harmonious and meaningful from the 13th (and 17th).  After that, especially around full moon time on the 22nd, it’s about balancing opposites, e.g. work-life and home-life (it links to last November somehow).

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
First week of February clears up some unfinished business from December and January, maybe linking to career, or long-term plans involving home and family. It involves some complex dynamics in situations, which means uncontrollable elements, so it’s important to be able to trust the process a little bit. Around new moon time (8th) up to midmonth it’s easier to go with the flow of this, and you’re feeling at the centre of some important new beginnings and changes. The planets then form a significant pattern (strongest 22nd and 28th), that has links to events last November. Communication, compassion and consideration are its key components.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
The sun (focus and attention) is in your sign till the 19th, Mercury (your communication and logic) arrives from 13th, and Venus (your Love and money) from the 17th. It all means the world is on your wavelength; it’s easier to get your message across, and you’re more intuitive about people and situations, as you’re wired for harmony and bridge-building with others. The annual new moon in your sign on the 8th symbolises an open doorway for new beginnings. It’s the time to let yourself dream big, and watch how the process of grounding your dreams into reality happens automatically unless you block it with doubts.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
First half of February is more reflective and introspective. This doesn’t mean things aren’t happening, just you prefer more time to decide what it means for you (especially around 8th). Events linked to friendships, groups and gatherings are significant, particularly during the first week, when there are some big changes and transformation to integrate. From the 19th when the sun moves into your sign you feel more in your element, and a magical full moon on the 22nd brings out your imaginative, artistic side in full detail. It’s also a time for healing in important relationships, and for trusting intuition when it comes to contracts or agreements (there’s a link to last November with that).
