January 2017 Horoscopes


Beautiful January is underway, here we go with the first horoscopes of 2017...

Aries
21st March – 20th April

Happy 2017 Aries! You're in soft and mellow mood as January opens, and if you need to wear rose tinted glasses to stay there, so be it, because you’ll achieve more by relaxing into the prevailing flow. January in general is about breakthroughs and expansion that you're guided to, rather than pushing towards (including romance). Around 7th to midmonth (full moon on 12th), might feel more demanding, yet more productive too. Then, around 28th there's a new moon (new beginnings) for friends, groups and gatherings. Unfinished business from December might finish at this time, and your ruler Mars moves into your sign, indicating it’s now time to be proactive and push forward.


Taurus
21st April – 21st May

Happy New Year Taurus. Regeneration and renewal through travel, education and learning is your theme for much of January, especially towards midmonth and around full moon time on the 12th, when the planets stand in strong formation calling you towards soul-satisfying journeys. Links with groups, whether work related or friendship based, are important too. It’s where romance sparks and thrives, and it’s where you feel motivated or driven by the sense of oneness from group purpose. Mercury (communication) moves forward from 8th, and from 19th the sun re-energises your ambition and career chart. New moon on the 28th indicates new beginnings linked to this; perhaps from plans that you’ve been conscious of since midmonth full moon.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June

Happy 2017 Gemini...the planets are gathering in your ambition and career chart. Your style of climbing the success ladder is different from others, in that you like to spend time dreaming and imagining success, even at the expense of taking care of some of the practicalities at first. This is exactly the right way to do it by the Law of Attraction, so don’t let others change your style, even during the security-orientated, financial full moon on the 12th. Mercury moves forward from the 8th which means your relationships are too (take note of how unfinished business from December is finished by end of month). And a future-focused new moon (28th) is about travel and learning.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July

Happy 2017 Cancer! It’s all about the next logical step for you this month, which is easier to take from the 8th when Mercury (logic and communication) moves forward after weeks in reverse (notice what happens around new moon on 29th regarding unfinished business from December). Next steps are also around 12th, when the annual full moon in your sign moves stalemates, and breaks through static situations. Relationships, romance, and contracts are all in focus as a result. There are lots of planets in your travel and education chart all month, which means lots of your energy and attention put there. Certain people or places might be calling to you, so go if it feels positive


Leo
23rd July – 23rd August

Happy New Year Leo! January can be a ‘sweet spot’ of the year, despite there being elements of certain situations you’d prefer were different. Maybe because it feels easier to relax and trust the universe has your back, and this lack of inner tension helps things click into place naturally. From around the 7th to around the rather spiritual full moon on the 12th, there’s plenty happening that would normally create tension, but because you’re tapped into the productive and constructive aspects of the situation, it feels like things are building in positive and creative ways. From the 19th and especially new moon time on the 28th, relationships have your attention, where new beginnings are in store.


Virgo
24th August – 22nd September

Happy 2017! There’s still a lot of emphasis on relationships, contracts and agreements as the new year gets underway. Lots of planets are lining up in this area of your chart which means so much seems to revolve around this area of your life. Your ruler, logical Mercury, moves forward from the 8th, indicating a turnaround in your thinking and communication, and perhaps something to look forward to linked to home and family. Full moon (12th) is about the challenge of a situation that brings forth positive and maybe sudden increase and expansion. There are endings as beginnings too, particularly around the problem-solving new moon on 28th. Unfinished business from mid-December-ish might get sorted at this time too.


Libra
23rd September – 23rd October

Happy New Year! You’re fully focused on the flow of your daily schedule, and it’s likely to feel busy this month, so staying effective and efficient is important to you. Lots of planets are in your health and fitness chart, which means lots of your energy poured into this area of your life and New Year resolutions are fulfilled. Romance might be found in the most mundane of places, yet still feel special (especially midmonth and final week). Second week, including full moon on 12th, is about productive effort toward change or make-overs linked to home, family, and/or long-term plans. Then, a ground-breaking new moon on the 28th indicates new beginnings involving creativity, and especially creative partnerships.


Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November

Happy 2017 Scorpio! Planets are visiting your fun and entertainment chart this month, so even though January has it’s serious and sensible moments there’s still lots of lightheartedness in store. Creativity is strong too, and it’s easier to find yourself ‘in the zone’ than before. The second week, and especially around 12th, during a full-on full moon, is about keeping the faith and a sense of belonging, and there’s (maybe sudden or unexpected) beginnings through endings via communication (especially 7th and 10th), and via home and family (new moon 28th). End of January might bring back unfinished business from mid-December, and you might choose to move forward on something you turned away from back then.


Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December

Happy New Year :) January can be a pivotal month for change (no pressure then!), especially around the second week, during the financially focused full moon on the 12th. Value, balance, friendship, networking, and creativity are all important themes at that time, which can call forth profound change as the new year inspires you to take a leap of faith and a new perspective, and make the most of dearly held dreams and visions. There are also plenty of planets all month in your home and family chart, which means lots of energy and attention to this area of your life. And some inspiring communication or ground-breaking information might show itself from 19th, particularly around 28th.


Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January

Happy New Year, Capricorn! The idea of building step by step toward long-term goals is right up your street, so you always do well at this time of year with new year resolutions. The urge for change and transformation might be strongest second week, helped by the sun energising your sign until the 19th and a full moon on the 12th in your partnership chart. This energises (and possibly magnfies) what’s happening in your close, personal, or business relationships, so if things are sweet they are about to get sweeter. There’s also huge emphasis on communication all month, and also situations involving your local area and neighbourhood, especially 19th and 27th. Unfinished business from December is transformed then too.


Aquarius
21st January – 18th February

Happy 2017! January is about relaxing into the idea of things happening at the perfect time (especially regarding finances). This takes a bit of trust because not everything can be planned for, and not everything is under your direct control; so there’s an element of faith in the bigger picture required. This is exactly what events during the second week (especially 7th and 10th) are about, along with the very spiritual ‘go with the flow’ full moon on the 12th. The sun moves into your sign from the 19th, and there’s the annual new moon there too, on the 28th. This indicates inner balance, new ideas for the future, and opportunities 
for self-development and growth. 


Pisces
19th February – 20th March

Happy New Year :) Several planets visit your sign during January, which indicates your focus on changes you now feel ready for. Your approach to issues is by the path of least resistance; you prefer to go with the flow around obstacles, rather than confront or push against them, and this will work well for you, for the most part, all month. That’s not to say effort isn’t required, especially during second week and full moon on 12th, but efforts are rewarded with a sense of healing and improvement in key situations, especially when you feel beyond the appearances of a situation into the quiet truth of it (where truth doesn’t hurt). New moon on 28th suggests new beginnings linked to all this.

December 2016 Horoscopes

I moved house on the new moon in Sagittarius on Dec 1st (new moon in Sag = new journeys!), hence everything is running late, amidst unpacked boxed :D Better late than never though, here's my horoscopes for December for you :) Last of 2016. Get ready for 2017 ;)

Aries
21st March – 20th April
It’s time to take your own advice, especially midmonth during an enlightening, talkative full moon (14th). Your ruler, mighty Mars, moves into the most spiritual angle of your chart from the 19th, which emphasises going within to find your power. Meditation, contemplation, and intuition all serve you well. Logical Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) related to career, status and reputation; so maybe it’s not the right time to end something, or maybe it’s right time to regroup and rethink (maybe both). Relationships are interesting all month, especially final week (25th and 26th) for new expansion. The new moon (29th) is also about career, status and reputation, meaning exciting, unexpected commitments in store.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
A sense of belonging is important to you this month, and the midmonth full moon brings up your questions around that, such as where are more like-minded folk that share similar values? There’s a turning point around 19th (Mercury retrograde), which might involve abandoning some plans for just now, but there’s gain, not loss to be found from it. Your steady, practical nature loves security and routine, but there’s also huge value to be had from the unexpected or unpredictable, especially during final week when generous Jupiter meets revolutionary Uranus (around 26th), and the new moon inspires new journeys and perspectives (29th).

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
You can’t please everyone, so no point trying. This month (1st, 10th), and especially midmonth when there’s a fulfilling full moon in your sign (14th) follow the approval of your own heart, no matter who has something to say about it. Commitment, contracts and agreements are happening (especially 10th and 19th), and there’s also a temporary change of direction around that time, when your ruler Mercury goes retrograde (moves backward). The new moon (29th) is about new beginnings linked to this, and there’s a mega meeting between Jupiter and Uranus all month (strongest 26th), suggesting doors of opportunity and joy opening unexpectedly and fabulously.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
Planet Mercury moves into your relationship chart from 2nd, so news and discussion, communication and information, as well as your mindset about your relationships, contracts and agreements will feel important (especially 10th). There’s a talkative and rather spiritual full moon on the 14th that emphasises (and magnifies) all this; then a relationship situation that feels like it’s brewing with intensity might be diffused by a change in direction when Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) after 19th. A new moon on 29th speaks of new beginnings in relationships. A spectacular alignment of Jupiter and Uranus (all month but strongest final week) is about unexpected clarity, opportunity and/or independence, linked to home and career.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
Harmony planet Venus moves to your relationship chart (7th) so you’re seeking balance and equality, and standing for fairness and justice. Around 10th you’re the boss of fun and entertainment (perfect Leo job!), while creativity and romance mean extra commitment. Full moon (14th) in your house of friendship indicates good times, and events heal trust issues if you’re receptive to that. Mercury retrograde from 19th means avoiding power struggles with a change of direction. You’re also reconnecting with faces and places from the past (especially work related). Final week of December is a bag of goodies, especially 25th and 26th for sweet and stable relationships, and new moon (29th) for exciting expansion and developments, now and in future.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
Venus in your work, health, and problem-solving chart from the 7th means you’re looking to smooth relations with others, and find win/win solutions all month. Your ruler Mercury moves into your fun, creativity and romance chart from the 2nd, which means constructive and productive developments, particularly around 10th, 14th (full moon), from 21st, and around 29th (new moon) for new beginnings. Mercury retrogrades from 19th; the same day that action planet Mars moves into your house of relationships and contracts, suggesting reunions and reconnection, and a rethink or review about relationship direction. Final week of December is about freedom and balance with resources, and maybe there’s unexpected or sudden income and purchase opportunities.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
Your ruler Venus moves to your house of fun, creativity and romance from the 7th, setting a tone for the month ahead. You’re still practical and grounded, despite your light-hearted mood (or maybe there’s fun in the practicalities) especially around 10th, 14th, and from 19th, with events around new moon time (29th) highlighted as potent symbols of new progress and developments, particularly linked to home and family matters. Mercury retrogrades from 19th, which might mean plans change last minute. It indicates reunions and reconnection too. All month (especially final week) Jupiter and Uranus align in ways that indicate productive, unexpected opportunities, so savour the sweetness. 

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Certain limits linked to income and resources challenge you to stay open and creative, increasing your sense of expertise and authority (especially 10th to full moon on 14th). The extra special Jupiter/Uranus alignment (all month but strongest 25th and 26th) is about sweet harmony found from unusual places, especially communication, which is important all month but particularly around 19th when Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards). It indicates events might seem to be going off track or delayed, but don’t jump to conclusions. Presume there’s method to the madness, and what happens around new moon time (29th) and into the first weeks of the new year will make sense of the timing issues.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
This is your time of year. The sun is in your sign until 21st and the positive Jupiter/Uranus alignment (strongest and sweetest 25th/26th) bodes well for your friendships, fun and entertainment, while creative projects benefit from others input. Around the 10th and especially during an informative full moon in your relationship chart (14th), you’re aware of more responsibility on your shoulders, so don’t second guess or self-doubt especially when it comes to home and family matters; stay open to your faith and vision about the future instead. Then what seems like a step backward around 19th turns into two steps forward with the productive and constructive new moon (29th) focused on new beginnings linked to income and resources.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
Planets are gathering in your sign from the 2nd, so getting your message across and your approach to things is more important to you than usual. Mercury (logic and communication) retrogrades from the 19th, indicating a big change of mind and direction, and the sun in your sign from 21st (winter solstice) and new moon on the 29th is about a ‘new you’. The exciting Jupiter/Uranus alignment, which builds all month (strongest 26th), is about sudden or unexpected expansion and opportunities linked to home and career that require a balance of priorities and endless optimism, but it’s like you’ve a guardian angel at your shoulder around 10th, 12th, 14th and 25th, which strengthens both your faith and sense of adventure.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
Lots of things are moving at your pace and in comfortable ways this month. Venus in your sign from 7th means feeling good in yourself, along with more harmony and balance with others. Around 10th and especially full moon on 14th friendship requires extra commitment; and income and money is highlighted too, requiring receptivity to receive (in other words, you’re worth it!). Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backwards) from 19th, and you’re fine with the change of mind and direction it brings. From then, you’re half reclusive, half extrovert, which feels like the right balance. Final week the planets align in unusually positive ways, bringing unexpected smiles and surprises. New moon (29th) is about pondering welcome new developments.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March

The sun energises your house of ambition and status until 21st, meaning you’re feeling empowered about long-term plans and ladders of success, especially career ladders. There could be important meetings or a new sense of authority around 10th, and an optimistic full moon (14th) carries a message to stay receptive to things going your way despite how things appear on the surface. Action-orientated Mars is in your sign from the 19th, so motivation is high. Mercury retrogrades on 19th too, encouraging a change of mind and/or direction. There’s reconnection and reunion with friends, and new moon (29th) is about new friends, groups and gatherings. Final week (25th and 26th) there’s potential for unexpected opportunities linked to income or resources.

November 2016 Horoscopes

Aries
21st March – 20th April
There are many unknowable and uncontrollable factors right now, but making peace with uncertainty means you enjoy the renewal and replenishment in store, especially during the security-conscious Supermoon (14th) spotlighting income and ownership. Or perhaps around 24th when work ambition and relationships are powerfully linked. Your ruling planet, mighty motivated Mars, moves into your friendship and support zone from the 9th, which means you’re more driven to seek out those you feel resonance with; those in harmony with your hopes and dreams, and preferred lifestyle. From the 21st and especially from the uplifting new moon (29th), there’s a focus on anything that opens you to new horizons and new perspectives. 

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
These are interesting times for you, particularly for much of the month regarding partnerships, contracts and agreements. November opens with doors of opportunity, and midmonth (14th), there’s a spectacular Supermoon in your sign which points to up close and personal fulfilment in areas that matter most. Your ruler, harmony-loving Venus, moves into your travel and education chart from the 12th, which means expanding horizons and faith in your future. Final week (especially 24th/25th) can be a renewing, transformative time for this, so don’t try to control the controllable; instead feel the day-to-day adventure of unknown territory. New moon (29th) repeats this theme, and speaks of new long-term plans and ambition.

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
You’re so ready for what November has in store, having already cleared a lot of clutter and therefore made space for new fulfilment. Your planet Mercury moves into your relationship zone from the 12th, followed by the Sun from the 21st, which means the adventure of partnership has increasing importance as the month goes on, and there’s a lot happening in this respect, especially after 21st. Relationships deepen with trust, and final week (especially 24th/25th) there’s opportunity to test that out by taking your attention off what you can’t control, deepening faith in your journey with others (creativity and fun soars at that time too). A new moon on the 29th is also about relationships, meaning you end the month with a new beginning.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
It’s a positive start to the month, especially when you’re clear about your intentions. Venus (love and money) moves into your relationship zone from the 12th, just before a replenishing and resourceful Supermoon on the 14th, making it much easier to stand your ground about what matters most to you. Having the courage of your convictions is a repeating theme this month (especially 24th/25th), as is the idea of rebirth and renewal in relationships. A new moon on the 29th is about new beginnings in store, especially related to health and fitness. You have plenty of faith, hope and clarity available this month, so use it.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
There’s lots of emphasis on home and family for much of November, where you’re looking to make long term changes that enhance your feeling of security and wellbeing, There’s an ambitious and aspirational Supermoon on the 14th suggesting things moving on this, as well as in career too. Final week (strong on 24th) is about smoothing the way forward on all this, day to day. From 21st things start revolving around romance, fun, enjoyment, light-heartedness. You’re interested what makes your heart and soul sing; nothing less will do, and the new moon on the 29th is about allowing and having faith in some new, entertaining adventures.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s emphasis on home and family, communication, and creativity this month. Spiritual and soulful Neptune is changing direction on the 20th, which corresponds with slow but sure change in you regarding key relationships, how you relate and want to relate with others; from being caught up in what was, to having faith in what could be and what will be. November is about not ignoring your feelings on certain matters that have been making you feel limited or restricted unnecessarily. Your sign is about clarity and logic, and often you leave emotion out in order to keep things making sense, but now it only makes sense to recognise, value and appreciate how you really feel.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
For much of the month things are revolving around finance, resources and income. Ownership, value and worth (and self-worth) are important themes, as are security and shared resources (especially around 14th, under the regenerative and revealing Supermoon). From the 21st the emphasis shifts to the importance of communication and dialogue (especially 29th). But there’s also a planet pattern building all month (strongest 24th/25th) involving Jupiter (expansion and luck) and Pluto (trust and transformation). It indicates change; in yourself, and linking to home and family too. The adventure of the unknown is the theme, and when your planet Venus joins Pluto (24th) it suggests it’s all revolving around certain relationships.

Scorpio
24th October – 21st November
November is very much about the ‘new you’ that you feel is happening right now. The sun is in your sign until 21st, so you’re busy recharging, renewing and replenishing. Creativity flows strongly during week one, along with your intuition; then midmonth (14th), there’s a Supermoon; a full moon that puts relationships, contracts and agreements in the spotlight, bringing matters to a head and moving stuck situations forward. Finance is a focus from 21st; especially 23rd (temporary obstacles) and new moon on 29th means new beginnings linked to income. Venus, Jupiter and Pluto are strongly linked during final week so pay no attention to control dramas; instead enjoy the endless evolution and expansion of your life right now.

Sagittarius
21st November – 21st December
Your ruling planet, the adventurous Jupiter, is part of November’s most important planet pattern. Jupiter is linking up with powerful Pluto, for a meeting that builds in strength all month (strongest 24th). It indicates huge desire for change and transformation, and huge capability for positive expansion and growth (nice to have both the desire and solution). It’s about tapping reserves and resources you didn’t know you had. It’s about your hopes and dreams, friendships, support network and links with groups, teams, and like-minded folk (especially 25th). Also, the sun moves into your sign from the 21st, which puts you at the centre of things, including the spotlight.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
There might be some good news given or received during first week of November. From the 12th (just in time for a fun-filled Supermoon on 14th) Venus, planet of relationships and resources moves into your sign, which is about emotional and magnetic attraction to what you most value (meaning feel loving to attract love. Feel prosperous to attract prosperity). This gathers strength by the final week when Venus meets power planet Pluto and positive Jupiter (24th/25th), just before a spiritual new moon (29th) about new faith in your inner guidance. It means you’re catching a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel and being unstoppably productive about ways of moving towards it.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
There’s a lot on your shoulders; lots of responsibility and pressure. That’s lovely if it’s all what you want, but Mars moves into your sign from 9th, which means sorting priorities and taking time to take stock about what matters most to you right now. The Supermoon on the 14th is about balancing ambition with comfort zone, and again it’s about what matters most. You might be letting go of certain things by final week, especially around 24th and 25th. Some might not be happy about it, but it’s about your values and priorities not theirs. New moon on 29th indicates you’re dreaming of new adventures, and you’re attracting like-minded folk for the journey.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
Lots happening this month; summed up by your planetary ruler Neptune ending retrograde (appearing to move backwards) on the 20th, which means a turning point or change in direction, where you feel things are moving forward again. The past has been important, yet you’re ready to face the future now (and put faith in it), and whatever you’ve felt has been holding you back is likely to shift (particularly during final week, around 24th or 25th). There’s lots of focus on communication this month, especially during the Supermoon (14th), which is also about new horizons, learning and travel. Then from 21st, and especially new moon on 29th, it’s about a new step up on your ladder of success.

New Moon in Scorpio 30th Oct 2016 -

At 5.38pm UK time it's the annual new moon in Scorpio (for the UK and most of Europe, this is the second new moon of October – also known as the ‘black moon’). 

Two weeks ago we had a supercharged full moon in Aries on the 16th, which brought each of us our own unique ‘bolt from the blue’- an unexpected event or situation that rocked our world in positive or negative ways (maybe a bit of both).

And now today there’s the new moon in Scorpio, which is a sign about trusting the process of what comes next. Scorpio is about the power of unknown territory and the relationship we have with it. It’s about hidden strength and hidden depths in ourselves and others… much like the tip of the iceberg, there’s always so much more going on underneath.

So it’s all about what you have to take on trust for now, or get comfortable with the uncertainty of. The dark side of Scorpio (and boy can it get dark), is the flip side of that – seeking power and control OVER what is known or knowable. It can become a very murky area indeed when there’s no trust, and especially no trust in the guidance of the heart and Soul, (which never seeks power and control over anything).

Scorpio season is about letting go of what we can’t control. It's about not trying to control the uncontrollable; instead it's surrendering (not submitting) to our version of God or higher power, which is the natural organising conciousness of the universe. It means relaxing into the idea that we don’t have to do it all ourselves, and that ‘things just have a way of working themselves out’ whether or not we know how right now (unknown territory, remember), and most importantly that we don't have to fight or grasp for that. 

Meaning, remembrance that we are held, heard and known by this power, whether we know it or not. That what we want matters and so is taken into account in the bigger picture. It's a big ask for us to drop our guard and trust this but once we do it and receive results, it gets easier next time. 


The Scorpio season is a very healing season because it’s about letting go of the tight grip of control that the intellectual mind likes to hold over everything. Some things (a lot of things!) are beyond current intellectual understanding, but that doesn't mean they aren't real and valid. This new moon is about the trust it is taking right now to grow and evolve into what's new, and what's waiting for us.

Full moon in aries, 16th October 2016


Hello! We are mid-way through beautiful October, and here in the north of England, autumn is starting to show itself. The annual full moon in Aries takes place this year on 16th October @ 05.23am (UK time). The Sun in Libra stands opposite Moon/Uranus in Aries, which certainly is a highly charged, potentially explosive combination (in both positive or negative ways). Moon and Uranus together can make situations feel unstable, disruptive, and emotionally unsettled. But it can also be about emotional breakthroughs, positive change, and independence that gets to the heart of who we are and how we want to relate with others.

Electric attraction is sparking chemistry in relationships like it hasn’t for some time, so sudden or unexpected romance, or love at first sight, is just as likely as sudden 'bolt from the blue' break-ups. 

Sun in Libra has a keen sense of justice and fairness, and impulsive Aries leaps into action without a second thought (without a first thought if intuitive Uranus is added to the mix), to redress the balance.

We also have the very powerful Mercury in Libra square to Mars/Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury (logic and communication), Mars (action and momentum) and Pluto (powerful transformation) can also indicate an explosive combination and huge releases of energy. Mars and Pluto standing together hold huge power, and therefore huge potential for power struggles between people. It’s also an indicator of bottling things up, and any full moon seems to pop the cork on certain situations that have been building up (this one is maybe more likely than others)

Communication needs lots of self-awareness; lots of ‘being the bigger person’. Give benefit of the doubt repeatedly in order to dispel power struggles within yourself about others, and your relationship with others. And to stop the negative judgements from killing your peace and harmony and locking you out of your own heart centre (which is the most bleak place in the universe to be).

Most of us are not in positions of power that we can instantly make decisions that affect huge sways of people, so all we have is our own individual inner peace and harmony that we can control. Luckily it’s all we need. Our own corner of the world is where we can impact and influence... not via manipulation or pressure on others, but via our own self balance. This is what the Aries/Libra axis is all about.

I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling this potent full moon energy building for a few days now. It’s a full on full moon for sure, looking at the planet patterns. Which means it takes some focus and determination to get the best from it, but oh the rewards are great for doing so.

So unless things have been going totally swimmingly in all areas of your life for a while, it’s more than likely that any area not flowing and going 100% how you want it too has become harder to ignore this week… the obstacles, the brick walls, the delays, the wading through treacle, the aches and pains…. it all FEELS more intense during a full moon like this one, making you more restless, more sensitive or touchy and over-reactive.

It’s because full moons work like emotional amplifiers. If you’ve been doing a lot of thinking (focusing) about what you don’t want, and dealing with things you don’t want to deal with in certain areas, the resistance, or the pushing against it all, is MUCH more tangible right now.

BUT the sweet healing power of a full moon is that it’s GUIDANCE – all that emotional amplification means you get to see exactly where you would do well to ‘reset your mindset’ to something more positive, open, life-affirming, YOU-affirming. Something less judgemental, less rigid, less critical. Don’t underestimate the power of your mindset. How you think and feel regularly about things, is how things turn out, everytime. A little bit of open-heartedness and open-mindedness goes an awful long way during this full moon period, opening doors for miracles and marvels to manifest.

Happy full moon in Aries!

October 2016 Horoscopes










Hello everyone :)  here are my horoscopes for this beautiful month of October for you. Please note that timezone might make a difference to when some of the planet alignments take place. For example the UK has the new moon on the 1st Oct, which took place on 30th Sep for a lot of people (and was called the dark moon). Here in the UK and for a lot of Europe, our dark moon happens on 30th October... just in time for Halloween! Happy Autumn to you. 


Aries
21st March – 20th April
Jupiter, planet of good luck and expansion unites with the new moon on the 1st, bringing new beginnings and expansion in relationships, especially romance, business and/or legal. Jupiter’s promise is that harmony and justice will prevail despite any challenge, and yes there are some challenges, especially around 7th, and midmonth when the full moon is in your sign (16th). It’s then that you’re restless for revolution and a head start on making changes (keep a balance in what you take on so you avoid the strain of overreaching). Finally, a rare second new moon on the 30th is about important new beginnings that require feeling ok with uncertainty or the unknown.

Taurus
21st April – 21st May
A new moon of abundance on the 1st indicates opportunity and positivity linked to health and fitness, as well as more efficiency and solutions for daily schedule and work environment. This month brings challenge (especially 7th, 16th, 19th, 25th, 29th) but just watch how things still get moving in positive ways despite things being unsettled or coming to a head (especially around 16th). From the 23rd the sun and Mercury move into your relationship zone, which energises partnership and communication. A new moon here on the 30th suggests important new beginnings now or near future

Gemini
22nd May – 21st June
An amazing, abundant new moon on the 1st is about enjoying new beginnings and in the realm of creativity, fun and entertainment. Creative projects can take off, while romance and matters of the heart find balance and harmony. But keep your eye on the ball as there’s plenty of challenges that might distract you into lowering your mood, especially around 7th and midmonth. It’s all about perspective though; these challenges bring out the best in you so why bother wishing they weren’t there. A rare second new moon on the 30th is about new, positive plans for the future, a more streamlined work/daily environment, and renewal and regeneration for health and fitness.

Cancer
22nd June – 22nd July
This month there are two new moons (indicating new beginnings), and a midmonth full moon (16th) about a sudden change in priorities born from the urge to stay true to yourself, which means who you are now, not who you once were. (Smashing out of comfort zones can be uncomfortable until you acclimatise though). New moon on the 1st focuses on home and family, and the sense of abundance and buoyancy in this area of your life that you want more of. New moon on 30th focuses on more creativity, romance, fun and enjoyment. It’s about letting go and trusting the process, and the sense of renewal and replenishment that arises from it all.

Leo
23rd July – 23rd August
For much of the month the emphasis is on more communication, information, and education, starting with a new moon on the 1st all about new beginnings involving balance, harmony, justice and fairness. Doors of opportunity are opening, now and in future, linked to all this. Travel is also highlighted, especially midmonth, when your restlessness and itchy feet get you thinking about expanding horizons, and pastures new. There are downs as well as ups this month (as ever), but there’s an underlying positivity that won’t be broken After the 23rd, and especially around the rare second new moon on 30th, home and family matters are your focus. New beginnings are in store here too.

Virgo
24th August – 22nd September
There’s a very positive new moon on the 1st in your house of finance and resources. New moons are about new beginnings, and this one has a theme of expansion, opportunity, and faith in the future. There are some challenging planet patterns this month (especially midmonth), so the message is to only move forward when feeling faith in your future, as taking action from anxiety or pessimism can lead to over-reaching or straining yourself, and your resources. From the 23rd and especially during the second new moon of the month around the 30th, it’s all about new depth and intimacy via communication and information. There might be something new about the neighbourhood too.

Libra
23rd September – 23rd October
On the 1st there’s an outstanding new moon in your sign, which is a powerful promise of new beginnings and opportunities. Abundant Jupiter unites with this new moon, suggesting you feel more confident, and happy to relax into the idea that universe wants to give you what you want. It’s not even the easiest of months astrologically; some situations can be hard work (especially 7th, 18th, 25th), most need a cool head and the patience of a saint (especially the relationship-themed full moon on 16th), yet you take it all in your stride. After 23rd you’re focused on finances; the rare second new moon on the 30th indicates new beginnings linked to income and resources.

Scorpio
24th October – 22nd November
Before the sun moves into your sign from the 23rd, more sleep, meditation, relaxation or just daydreaming serves you well as it rebalances and harmonises your relationship with yourself. Once you’re in tune with yourself, disharmony with others is easier to cope with and sort out (or let be). Midmonth, and especially around a super-charged electric full moon on the 16th, emotions can run high (or deep) and situations can change with lightning speed, so the more at one with yourself you can be, the more positive things can turn out. Then a beautiful new moon in your sign on the 30th indicates inspired new beginnings are in store.

Sagittarius
23rd November – 21st December
New beginnings and new relationships with groups, gatherings and friends is the message of a particularly uplifting new moon on the 1st. It says social circles and networks are expanding, so expect plenty of entertaining and good-feeling times; more so after Venus moves into your sign from the 18th. It’s not all plain sailing this month though, so work extra hard to keep your inner balance around 7th, 16th, 18th and 25th, as situations can get fraught and tense through no fault of your own. Respond rather than react, and don’t get your guard up or you miss the benefits coming from a very spiritual new moon on the 30th, which speaks strongly of healing, regeneration and renewal.

Capricorn
22nd December – 20th January
An upbeat and confident new moon on the 1st is about new plans and ambition, especially linking to career and status or reputation, but including anything that is looks a long-term commitment. You can be totally disciplined when you want, but that needs balance too, as all work and no play isn’t going to fulfil you long-term. Midmonth (especially full moon time on 16th) might bring career/home imbalance to a head in order to sort it. Around 7th and 19th might be intensely transforming too; it’s a time to trust the process and the bigger picture. From the 23rd and especially around new moon on 30th, there are new beginnings linked to groups, gatherings, friends, hopes and dreams.

Aquarius
21st January – 18th February
New beginnings linked to travel and education are highlighted by a magnificent new moon on the 1st, focusing you like never before on the joy of the journey to new harmony and faith in yourself. Disharmony is also a feature of October planet patterns though, so your ability to stay feeling good in yourself despite outer circumstances will not only help you, it also helps dissipates tension around you. Midmonth is the most intense in for this, especially during an unusually revolutionary full moon that brings sudden or unexpected movement in situations. The urge to update, renew, and regenerate long-term plans gains momentum from 23rd, with new opportunities and beginnings emerging from the new moon on 30th.

Pisces
19th February – 20th March
There’s a very positive and uplifting new moon (indicating new beginnings) on the 1st, which impacts any situation requiring trust and faith in the unknown. It’s like you’re developing a new relationship with uncertainty, so being in the dark about things doesn’t intimidate or control you emotionally like it used to. It might take time for you to fully notice this happening; perhaps it’s by making your way through October’s challenges (most likely around 7th, 16th, 18th and 25th), and noticing you don’t react in the same way you once did. From the 23rd (and especially 30th), your faith in the bigger picture continues to grow, which feeds both your imagination and your desire to expand old horizons.

Virgo Solar Eclipse September 1st & Pisces Lunar Eclipse September 16th, 2016


This month (September 2016) there are two eclipses… a solar one (at the time of the new moon) in the sign of Virgo on the 1st. And a lunar (at the time of the full moon) in the sign of Pisces on the 16th.
Both indicate key stages in the lunar cycle – solar eclipses tend to indicate new phases or new beginnings, and lunar eclipses often indicate closure or letting go. Especially emotional closure. The Moon is about emotions and feelings, and so they are coming to the forefront this month, to be acknowledged, processed and integrated.

In astrology eclipses are about major turning points, where certain situations have been building up momentum through events for quite some time, for good or ill, and the events at eclipse times are release points, or trigger points for long-term change. You can look back with hindsight at an eclipse period and see how events around that time were movers and shapers of future direction.

September 1st Eclipse = Preparation is Key
During the September 1st eclipse, the planets suggest there has been pressure to act in a certain way, or to act on certain things, but the timing might not be quite right to take action, even if you want to. Withholding or holding fire doesn’t mean failure to launch, it is more about good preparation. The time for action might be more mid-month or beyond, when Mars aligns with the lunar eclipse.

Saturn square Neptune
This planet alignment has been one of the key themes of the year, and it figures highly in the eclipses, especially the solar eclipse on the 1st. This alignment has brought our fears to life in some respects, only for us to find out that our fears hold no power over us in reality.
It’s also about being very careful what we believe in or buy into, as what seems real often turns out to be just a fa├žade. It’s been a year of remembering not to judge books by covers.

Mercury Retrograde
This retrograde period started near to the solar eclipse on 30th August, and will continue for most of the month, ending on the day of the Autumn equinox, 22nd September.
Although Mercury retrogrades three times a year, this one is a strong retrograde because:
-          Mercury is in Virgo, the sign which it rules.
-          North node is in Virgo, which is an indicator of opportunities or open doors that feel ‘fated’ or like ‘destiny’ to walk through. Mercury is therefore planet associated with this north node, which means it’s the planet to watch for the way these opportunities will manifest (Mercury is about communication, logic, pathways, transport, siblings and sibling relationships, and neighbours). As Mercury is Retrograde it means the concept of retrograde is also how those opportunities manifest. Retrograde means reconnection or returning to the past in some way… looking to the past, looking in a different direction, etc etc. 
-          Mercury meets Jupiter at eclipse time. Jupiter is the planet of good luck, good fortune, faith and expansion. Jupiter uplifts what it touches, which gives this Mercury retrograde period a touch of miracle mindedness; a sparkle of extra confidence and self belief. 

Lunar Eclipse = Ready to Receive
When the moon stands opposite the Virgo sun, from the sign of Pisces on the 16th, it also stands next to the asteroid Chiron. This asteroid is about healing, and specifically about being receptive to healing. Being open and accepting of solutions can be a challenge when the problem or symptom is dominant… it takes imagination to look past what looms large in our life, and be open to answers and opportunities. It also means accepting we are deserving of being given to in this way.

Ask and it is given is the mantra of the universe according to Law of Attraction, but the universe can only give by us being open to receive. The lunar eclipse on the 16th suggests events that highlight this idea of being receptive and open to solutions and problems. The time might be right for action too, according to Mars...
