– Gil Scott Heron

27th of June 2018, Mars the planet of power, drive, assertion and strength will be going Retrograde in Aquarius the sign which focuses on the collective group (Society and Collectives), innovation and ingenuity.  The force will be strong with this one, as Mars retrogrades least in Aquarius. The rarity of this retrograde reflecting its potency.

The last time Mars went retrograde in Aquarius was 1971, the time before that 1939. Mars Retrogrades LEAST in Aquarius and if your under the age of 45, you have never experienced this energetic shape – shifting before. This is a new energy to help you innovate and create new tools to operate with. New methods that can streamline and accelerate your progress around Anger, Rage and Frustration being some obvious themes. Aquarius provides the ability to investigate how to do it in cool detachment is the first gift of this transit.

Currently Mars is well and truly in the shadow of this retrograde, meaning it is already slowing  down to begin its retrograde phase, 15 days out. It will shift only a degree before it turns retrograde, in 15 days. Meaning for a fast, quick pace action packed planet like Mars, you maybe feeling the beginnings of its frustration in the slow down and/or sensing areas for realignment and changes.

Mars will retrograde at 9 degrees of Aquarius, back to 28 degrees of Capricorn, the exact degree of Mars’ exultation (its most powerful degree). Mars will station direct at this degree, but won’t move out of its Retrograde shadow until October 11th; When Venus begins her Retrograde.  This means Mars will be in Aquarius from Mid May until Mid October, which is a long time for Mars to be pulsing its rays in the Aquarius area of your Chart. By the time this Retrograde cycle has ended Mars will have been in Saturn based Signs for 7 months. That is a lot of activity and energy to be thrown at saturnine signs who feed off hard work with no shortcuts.

Another auspicious signifier that this retrograde will be unusually strong, is the fact that Mars first entered Aquarius within hours of Uranus (Aquarius’s Modern Ruler) going into Taurus. Aquarius and Taurus are signs that square each other, thus these energies will directly connect during this retrograde phase. Uranus in Taurus is a once every 84 year cycle, Mars’ retrograded last in Aquarius 46 years ago.

Uranus and Mars are fast, reactive, innovative and exciting energies. Mars being retrograde for these contacts slows this fast pace down, to a stand still at some points.  Dis-satisfaction from surprising areas might be what gets the ball rolling, as this unusual slowdown frustrates, and triggers !

Pushing forward and being the aggressor is never recommended at this time, but listening the subtle shifts and changes are. It’s a time for revision, reassessment and basic implementation, not running full steam ahead casting fury and aggression to get what you want. Burning energy to get things going, works against what this transit is offering. Its more gentle than that, and demonstrates that sometimes you need more than brute force to get things up and going.

There is a spiritual letting go aspect to this Mars Retrograde which is unusual. (This Mars Retrograde is really delivering in the Unusual stakes, which is how Aquarius energy rolls).  Mars when in Aquarius, conjoin’s the South Node (Ketu), 3 times. The South Node, depending on your take on the Nodes, is either your past lives, or the tail end of the dragon which in legend has been split in two, creating The North Node (Rahu) and the South Node (Ketu).

Ketu gets rid of things you don’t need, to live a less materialist or all-consuming life which is connected to nothing, (Ego). Mars when retrograde conjoin’s this South Node (Letting go, spiritualizing), which is urging a very deep detox, or cleaning around long-held beliefs, deeply held systems and understandings, which was are almost soul defining for you. Mars is blasting lots of heat and energy urging you to let go !  Setting up new frame works, and dropping old bullshit which might have anger / rage / resentment as a theme, before really pushing forward post October/November.

This Mars contact to the Nodes is about looking to see how you can balance the desire of moving forward with the new; in an authentic and balanced way, that is Spiritually authentic and true to yourself, whist moving into new ground for your own personal evolution.  With theses Nodes being on the Leo / Aquarius Axis, individuation and the collective are themes that will run through this Mars Retrograde, when it conjoin’s the Nodes. Are you doing things for yourself or for others ?, should you be taking more control over what your personal passions are over what society says you should be doing ? Have you become an egoist nightmare ? and do you need to spend more time jamming with others ?, perhaps taking other people into account ?, Are you hiding behind a mask or other people’s drama from your own truth ? Do you feel you have to play a role to be significant or important in life ? Do you feel like the outsider ? How can you bring yourself in ? Some Astrologers have observed the Deaths of both Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain, occurred on week of this first Mars / South Node conjunction, which connected to personal aspects of their charts, showing how heavy this combo can truly be.

Of course, when Astrology is really conspiring against you, it happens in 3’s or more. Naturally the Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse of 27/28th of July, will occur conjunct this Retrograde Mars. I mean why would such a rare event not co-inside with an Eclipse ! Eclipses are accelerations, they basically push the story along ! Eclipses are strange times. They are 2 week intervals every 6 months where, The New & Full Moons become turbo charged.  Mars Retrograde conjunct this is VERY Auspicious and it will be interesting to see how this all unfolds, as Eclipses bring very quick beginnings and endings; With Mars Retrograde, next to it, it might feel like a lot of the action is out of your control, or there is the potential to feel powerless, But I wouldn’t say it’s not in your favour long-term.

Mars retrograde by nature, like all retrograde’s of personal planets, are a time of turning inwards. There is a feeling of restocking, reassessment, contacting and understanding the very basics of how this planet and its signifiers operate within and around you. These are real opportune times to connect deep into how these energies operate in specific areas of your life. The fact that this particular Mars retrograde in Aquarius is so rare, alongside the contacts with Uranus, The South Node and the Eclipses all signify a slow down and then a speed up of a particular theme or story in your life from deep and unexpected places, with some of it out of your control. What you can control is your response.

Mars being the Archetypal  Warrior, how you look after your Warrior and how you might gain from letting go of outdated ideas, techniques, attachments and feelings will allow you to look at how your gladiator operates. Maybe the end of this Retrograde phase your strength and commitment to change will really surprise you !

The best way to work with this transit is to be active in the change, and to not be complacent. Reassessment of how you deal with Anger and Rage is always a good start point for Mars retrograde, remembering any avoidance of the above work will potentially explosive by the time Mars turns direct, later in the year.

Mars Retrograde Through the House

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius : 26 / 27 June – 27th of August 2018

Aquarius / Aquarius Rising 

This Mars Retrograde will work in how you present to the world, how you assert, present, dress, mask and operate within the world. Time to take some power back and show whose boss ? Time to do something for your own satisfaction rather than the good of others? What is it time to update and present to the world that honours who you really are ! and how you personally like to be represented ? Is it possible that you can actually show the world and actually BE yourself !

Pisces / Pisces Rising 

The House of the Sanctuary and Privacy, is where Mars will be asking you to do some spring cleaning in. Clearing out the old dated beliefs around Spirituality and personal pleasure or sanctum. Where you find sanctuary and where you might clear out your secrets, which only hold you back. The most personal of the personal areas is where the secretive Pisces and Pisces Rising will see a resurgence, honouring the magic that makes these people so loved and adored. There is also an element of claiming it for yourself and not others, as the South Node helps you purge all the toxic shit from your inner and private sanctum. Empowering your natural magic, with no guilt and honouring and strengthening your greatest light. Yourself.

Aries / Aries Rising

Aries may see more focus of energy and slow down in areas of the collective and group activities. Perhaps a re-assessment of what hopes and dreams you really want to manifest for yourself. What is out grown and out dated. As massive growth spurt will occur in your acquaintances, your group associations and your dreams and wishes, post retrograde. Perhaps its time to open the perimeters to include others in the vision and the interaction. Time to Rest as your ruler goes against the nature of its attributes and its skill set. This might all be a bit weird, but at the very least it’s an opportune time to rest, and recharge.  Weird collective and groups are a massive YES right now. Just try not to dominate them.

Taurus / Taurus Rising

How you view Status, and Acclaim, How you want to be recognised and where you look for reward might be shifting and evolving over this time. You might decide its time for the goal posts to shift and its time to put your energy into other things to elevate your status. Career and how you use your energy in your career is under the microscope. Time to ditch anything that is draining your energy and not giving you the street creed you deserve. Looking for alternative or things that may not on paper be an obvious path, is a good way to tap into your future vibe of Uranus in Taurus. Being a Taurus, now with Uranus, you are the future and Mars Retrograde will potentially help you arrive. But its all hush-hush for now.

Gemini / Gemini Rising

Time to go deep into deeper education / belief / philosophy and ideas that might take you out of the comfort zone of what your usual dexterous nature feels natural with. Travel may also be delayed. You might find you need to do some study to get to the next step. Either way Mars Retrograde makes you stop and focus in on one particular thing and go deep into. Strengthen your knowledge base and solidifying a subject that will be the focus of this time. It really is time to be the Master of One, rather than the Jack of all trades.

Cancer / Cancer Rising

Cancer sees its self in a natural water house, yet, this Mars Retrograde goes deeper into the areas, where Cancer might decide to find protection in its shell; rather than languish too long in these waters. A natural in this area, although perhaps a little reluctant, Cancer finds itself swimming in the waters that Scorpio likes to tread, and where Mars also has traditional rulership. Deeper connections with self, and others, Psychological patterning and habits, Occult or Mystical habits and studies, Shared Resources, these are the things that Mars will begrudgingly force Cancer to re-assess and evolved with. What Cancerian’s might prefer to avoid focusing on, Mars will stop and stall and make you use that dead wood for kindling as you clear space for better situations for all of the above. It will be slow but very magical and cathartic, making you come out of your shell a little bit more.

Leo / Leo Rising

Leo will see Mars Retrograde show them how relations with others is vital to the creative growth and development of the self. Leo might have to focus on its relationships and engagements with others, whether your like them or not ! Mars Retrograde might FEEL like your giving away your power, but its more about understanding HOW you engage with others and taking the foot off the accelerator to see how you can do it in a way that honours yourself and others better. Being brave is what Leo’s do best and when you travel down the road of looking at how you engage with the group and what you can do better is the bravest thing you can do as an individual.  Remember they don’t have to be traditional, Aquarius your opposite LOVES to do things that are not conformist and not necessarily Method Traditional.

Virgo / Virgo Rising

Mars Retrograde, hits the house you rule and it might, in your brain be natural and obvious. But executing it might be a bit of a struggle or more complicated than you first thought. Day to Day routines, Health, Work and what you do every day as a ritual to keep your balance. The Mind, Body, Spirit triangle; is where Mars operations for this retrograde. Mars is challenging you to slow down, re-assess and clear out the dead wood for Zen and Daily results, honouring all elements of the pyramid. Getting analytical and evaluating is what Virgo’s live for, but with Mars slowing down to show the deep gaps in the floor plan, as well as the slower than usual momentum is what frustrates and where anger issues might come in. Stick with it ! Mars Retrograde is helping you perfect the routine that will make you thrive for the future. Being innovative and thinking outside the box is really where the talent of this retrograde lies. Work smarter, not harder.

Libra / Libra Rising

Creativity, Love, Pleasure and children all the things that need the light to grow and nourish will be the area of life that needs weeding and focused attention this Mars Retrograde. The slow down might make you feel like your 3 steps forward and 2 back, but the pleasure you get from the reinvigorating and reconnection of these things will put you on track to enjoy your creative and pleasure pursuits for years to come. You might be surprised at how innovative you can be. Reconnecting with children will be invaluable.

Scorpio / Scorpio Rising

The home, the nest, the safe area or zone your call home, is where the spring clean is happening. Alternative ideas about living situations, changes in how you want to pursue this, psychological blocks or wounds around this may come up for tending and healing. Issues to do with ancestry, where you come from may be areas that you may reflect and clear weeds from. Either way new and innovative ways to rework home and where you call home are in the works. Just don’t force it right now. Its more Aha moments right now.

Sagittarius  / Sagittarius Rising

Mars Retrograde is officially the green light to lighten up rest.  Mars Retrograde might see you decide to indulge in some light communication and reading, not over do it. Sagittarius LOVES to do and engage in it all. The Mars Retrograde might be a good way to sit back and enjoy the less frantic and more simple exchanges of communication. Relations with Siblings might come under the microscope as Mars might put pressure on you to make some changes to honour both sides of the equation. Enjoy the breather and the slow down, engage with simple and uncomplicated pleasures.  If you end up having to deal with siblings, LISTEN and don’t get all fiery. It’s not the time to start a family war or drama.

Capricorn / Capricorn Rising

Capricorn loves money, cash, income, worth and self-worth. Mars loves fast pace, action and progress. Mars Retrograde in your financial / self-worth sector sees all of these things come together to assess what TRUE worth is, and blow out all the blocks to attaining true self worth. This transit maybe slow and there maybe frustrations with lack of progress and getting on with it. It might see you to decide there are better & other ways to make money that honour your own personal self worth. Either way this will be a transit that might see you come out the other side completely different from how you entered it. Aquarius does have moments of genius, but with Saturn being the old ruler of Aquarius AND your ruler, it indicates more about doing the REAL work before you get any payback. This house IS about Money you earn, but your own self worth and how you honour and acknowledge it OVER money and finance is worth more than anything you can put a price tag on. Mars Retrograde WILL make you work it, with a lot of dead wood set to be hauled out. As you re-claim yourself, one slow goat step at a time.

2017 Venus Retrograde in Aries : Venus Underground

screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-9-12-00-am

“There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup” 

Don’t Dream Its Over – Crowded House

Venus the Goddess of Beauty, Love, Fun, Pleasure & Relationships, is about to make her trip to the mythical underworld; disappearing from sight for 40 days and 40 nights. Beginning on March 4th, this Astrological transit is sees our Goddess withdrawal from the public sphere and turn our lights inwards as we reflect on all things Venus  that are in our lives.

Venus retrogrades every 18 months, this time around the Venusian Voodoo is ending a cycle in Fire Signs.  Placed right at the turning point of the zodiacal cycle, Pisces & Aries. The point of Endings and Beginnings.  Venus turns retrograde on March 4th 2017 until April 15th 2017.

On her travels, Venus begins this cycle as an evening star,  being visible at night before disappearing from the night sky as it enters its retrograde. As Venus goes behind the Sun, She is said to be traveling down to the Underworld to have her baptism with Pluto/Hades or Lucifer in the Biblical retelling. Before re-emerging into the Night Sky as a Morning Star, visible again just before dawn.

Venus when retrograde is about about reflection, turning the light inwards and re-evaluating your own personal Venusian values and re working your Venusian Voodoo. As this retrograde is in Aries and Pisces, Aries and Pisces energy flavours it,  Pisces is the end of the zodiac cycle, Aries is the beginning of it. This Retrograde is about big endings and big beginnings.

These Venus Retrograde periods can be looked back on as being turning or flash points. Times to reflect rather than push forward blindly. When planets go backwards, they move back over aspects of your life, to rework and remould to help reintegrate a certain section of your life, to really solidify an individuals evolution.

Aries significators are : The Warrior, Fire, Passion, Creativity, The Individual, Personal Pursuit. The Aries part of your chart is your internal Spartian Warrior. As the retrograde slips back into Pisces, this internal Spartian Warrior becomes more reflective around internal spiritual pursuits, about the bigger picture. It evolves into a more mutable, more deep and transcendent experience.  Which will be very contary to how this retrograde kicks off.   The key thing is that things can’t be rushed or pushed, as it is a time of flux. It is not recommended as a time to do anything to you body that you can’t change back. i.e.: plastic surgery or tattoos.  Venus is aesthetics and Beauty.

Interestingly enough this Venus Retrograde in 2017 is occurring at the beginning of Lent, and goes direct on Easter Saturday at the last degrees of Pisces, the most spiritual and trancendant of all the signs. This free’s Venus to continue her journey to meet with Mars right on time with the resurrection.  Her meeting with Mars has been delayed since early February due to her slowing down to do her Venus Retro cycle.

The last time Venus Retro’ed in Aries  was in 9 March – 17 April 2009,  so look back to then for some clues into what could be coming up. Astrology is the study of cycles, and these cycles do repeat. Some more than others.

2017’s Venus Retrograde is very much a key thread in a very dynamic year. Fire Energy  dominates the year with the Venus Retro being one of the most self evolving parts of 2017. The Retrograde is part of a larger story that began in early February that will end in 5 October 2017. Venus spends the year trying to meet up with or conjoin with her partner/lover Mars.

The conjunction of Mars & Venus on October 5th,  is the meeting point that never quite happened in early February. This meeting of Mars and Venus never quite happened as Venus slowed down to begin this self reflective Retrograde transit we are about to enter. It is with new found knowledge and information that Venus moves forward to finally make contact with Mars in October.

Interestingly this Mars / Venus conjunction on October 5th 2017, is the date of the next Venus Retrograde, October 5th 2018 in the signs of Libra (ruled by Venus) & Scorpio (ruled by Mars in old astrology).  There are many stories and cross overs in Astrology and the story of Mars and Venus is perhaps one of the strongest ones.

Its a great time to revisit how these Venusian archetypes are working in your life, and whether they are serving you well.

THROUGH THE SIGNS 

ARIES – 1st house  The Story of how you reflect your Venus Values to the World is the Story of this transit. Taking time out to take stock and re-evaulate how you look and how you show your relationships to the world will be the main focus with this Transit. If you have your birthday in the last 2 weeks of March, this Venus Retro will go over your Sun and Venus Retrograde will recolour your egos core by re-evaluting how you present your Venus Voodoo to the World.

TAURUS – 12 house  Taurus will deal with its ruler going retro in its secret 12th house and the house that rules Pisces with a very personal and potentially solitary processing. Going deep into the personal sphere, potential re-wiring  your Venus Voodoo will strike a deep and healing cord. Its not easy when your ruler is retrograde as the experience is stronger. But a chance for deep healing of the solitary kind around Venus style issues will be the focus this time around, and it will be so good !

GEMINI – 11 house  Friends, Social Groups, Gatherings and Personal Hopes and Wishes  are the focus of this Venus Retro.  Things may slow down in this area as you re focus your relationship and involvements in such things. Venus loves to be Social but this retrograde may see this slow down in your social life, and seed new ideas. Taking stock taking around the above themes will see you out of the social spotlight for a bit. Think of its as a bit of time out to reconnect with 11th house themes.

CANCER – 10 house  Cancer peeps will see this Venus Retro hit their 10th house of  Career, Status and Achievement. Some of the rose coloured glasses focal point’s  may shift. The changing of focus to things that would benefit you more Individually & Spiritually being the spark that changes your focus. Which is all very Cancerian at the end of the day isn’t it.

LEO – 9 house  Leo finds it Venus Retrograde focus taking its time in its 9th house of Philosophy, Higher Learning and Travel.  A hankering for travel and engagement with places that might be slightly left field for a Leo in its thirst for adventure. The slow down might not be so fun, but the kick start after will be re-invigorating.

VIRGO – 8 house  Virgo is about to explore the merky depths of the 8th house with Venus shining her internal light on to psychological depths of the house of deep connection. Also the house of other peoples money -Taxes, Debt and Inherited Money. This Venus Retro will turn all these themes inwards for the Virgoan microscope to analyse. Deep subconscious states and interactions will be the theme du jour

LIBRA – 7 house  Like Taurus, having your ruler go backwards over areas that you thought were claimed in the House of your rulership (7 house)  makes this a potentially sticky Venus Retrograde. Nothing like having the double whammy of your ruling planet of Relationships going out of kilter in your home house of Relationships. The plan is to not fret ! Those that are meant to fall away, will fall away simple ! Don’t stress for mull over the hardship of imbalance. This phase will pass with a clearer road head after Easter.

SCORPIO – 6 house  Scorpio your work & health routines will be under assessment, nothing to drastic needs to be executed just yet. The acknowledgement and reassessment of these areas of life and how to infuse the Venus Voodoo is all you really have to recognise and do .. for now. Any action can be done post Easter.

SAGITTARIUS – 5 house  Venus Retro in your house of fun, creativity and children might feel like someone is raining on your parade. Don’t let this initial first impression put you off. Its all about channelling the philosophical shifts which is right up your ally and taking it to the higher vibe level. This is something that really resonates with the fun loving Sadge, It just might feel like a wet blanket at first but the shifts will allow you to unleash your awesome, post Easter.

CAPRICORN – 4 house  Capricorn loves Structure, they get off on it. The 4th house is the house of Home, Ancestors, Family and the Tribe. Structure and Strength generally doesn’t come more solid than that. With Saturn being the God of Karma, Saturn being Capricorns ruler a Venus Retro in the 4th House could see a more Empress or Goddess like vibe gracing your inner home or family life. Some A-ha moments, some nice reassessments or resolutions around the family and home would be a good manifestation of Venus Retro. Perhaps some ghosts of your former lives could pop up and say hi as this retro treads back in to Pisces. Either way its big re settings of cycles around Family, Home and your Ancestors, Former or the lives before that.

AQUARIUS – 3 house  Aquarius is a sign ruled by Mercury the Great Communication God Hermes.  Venus Retro in your 3rd house of Communication resonates with you. Looking at how you communicate and how that works with your relationships with others would be a good way to see this retro play out. Another way could be how you communicate your style aesthetics wise, as well as written and oral is a good use of this energy.  Either way try not to go the other way and loose your grace and tact when communicating when Venus does her dive into the underworld.

PISCES – 2 House  Pisces is part of the key areas of this retrograde. With people born in the the middle of March, having this Retro Venus going over there Sun. As this will be occurring in your 2nd house of Earned Money and Self Worth, this is a really good reset time for you. Venus Retro in your sign and over your Sun will see a reset of your own self worth internally. Its a really great and powerful way to kick start your year with some good inner ground work and soul searching, something Pisces does so well. Beware not to spend to much money on beauty products or on any impulse decision. It may not be the best idea post Easter. Up the self worth and try not to spend to much money on impulse pleasures ! The reward will be so much better after last April.

 

 

 

 

Saturn in Scorpio – Saturn’s last blast back to the Underworld

Screen shot 2015-07-14 at 2.21.18 PM“Saturn comes back around to show you everything, Let’s you choose what you will not see and then Drags you down like a stone or lifts you up again, Spits you out like a child, light and innocent.” Tool – The Grudge

Saturn’s Retrograde back into Scorpio on June 15th until September 2015 is the final stage of a transit that’s left most people emotionally exhausted and rinsed to put it mildly.

Saturn going through the dark depths of Scorpio over the past 2.5 years has seen many break up, downs and through’s in the areas of sex, psychology, external finances and esoteric beliefs.

All  the internal gunk we have been trying to avoid finally came spewing forward, the denials were no longer enough to contain it. We have realised through this transit the only way to get rid of this emotional gunk is to go through it and experience it, rather than skirt around it acknowledging it whilst waving thanks “I see you … but just stay over there!”

Saturn is a planet that gives structure by destroying all things that are not hurricane strength to allow deeper foundations to build on. Since this planet has been in Scorpio all things Scorpionic have firmly been in the firing line and Scorpionic things are not necessarily easy or straight-forward.

Saturn entered Scorpio on October 5th 2012 until 23rd December 2014.  Think back, what has changed, evolved or moved since then. Anything that has been evolving, changing or completely demolished since then, is what this final blast of Saturn is Scorpio is trying to finally integrate and finalise over the coming months, before pushes off for another 28 – 30 years.

People who have their Sun or personal planets (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars)  in Scorpio have been feeling the heat of the this Saturn transit over these planets the most. They would have felt a small reprieve when Saturn went in Sagittarius Dec 23rd 2014 until June this year, however since coming back for its final run, Saturn is  considered more potent. The best way to look at transits, is to look at how things unfolded in previous Saturn in Scorpio transits (Globally and Personally). It’s a good indicator about what Saturn in Scorpio is about.

The last time we had Saturn in Scorpio (November 29 1982 – November 1985), the AID’s crisis was in full swing and Safe Sex became the new catch phrase, people’s lives literally became dependant on it. Peoples attitudes towards Sex had to be transformed almost over night. During this current transit we have seen plenty of celebrity sex scandals, with a outing of many predatory figures being convicted of sex crimes. In the 1980s we also saw Capitalism in full swing, mass privatization, suddenly Governments around the world were selling state assets to private buyers changing how we view what is private and what is public Goods and Services. Currently we are still dealing with  fall out of the effects of the Global Financial Crisis, the current Greek financial crisis the last blast or culmination of the continued woes for the Euro as well as helping re-evaluating how a United Europe does business. Other people are certainly dictating other people (Greece’s) money. What is decided on for Greece will certainly dictate other similar scenarios in Europe for the near future.

This last phase of Saturn in Scorpio isn’t going to be easy but it will most certainly finish off what it started back in October 2012 and it will hopefully made you re-evaluate how you psychologically do things for the better over the next 28 – 30 years.  When Saturn moves into Sagittarius on the 18th of  September, there will be a collective sigh of relief but the changes that Saturn brought should allow you to have greater depth, conviction and make you psychologically stronger creating a solid platform to move forward from, with the large sigh of relief and mutterings of “thank god that’s over ! Seriously !”

Saturn in Scorpio through the Sun’s Houses & What is being Zapped 

Aries: 8th House of Sex, Psychology and Other People’s Money (Taxes, Inheritance etc)

Has there been a shift in who you choose to engage with (in a deeper emotional level) and have you made any psychological progression in how you process your needs and wants in life ? Has the process of dealing with other people’s money been more complicated with a bigger focus on compliance since 2012 ?

Taurus: 7th House of One on One Relationships with People, Personal and Business.

Could you have found the old irrelevant people have fallen away ? Are you looking at strengthening your one on one relationships with people and how you operate with them ?

Gemini: 6th House of Health and Daily Routines ie: Work and Service to others.

Have you found more blocks in the road, more things to juggle in how you go about your daily life and have you made smarter ways in making these things happen ?

Cancer: 5th House of Creativity, True Loves and Children.

Has there been a reassessment or strengthening of your creative foundations and what you truly love? Has there been a need to create firmer boundaries with any children in your life ? Could you have found that what you thought you loved has changed and morphed into something more solid and clearly definable then pre 2012 ?  Are you able to build on this more clearly ?

Leo: 4th House of Home, Ancestors, Roots and History.

Has your home life been more complicated and a struggle ? More barriers and rules or restrictions required to make things work better ? Has there been a change in the dynamic that requires more compliance and commitment to make things stronger and better ?

Virgo: 3rd House of Communication, Technology and Internet.

Have you had to simplify to make communication more effective and stronger ? Is the less is more approach more effective than pre 2012 ? Are all communications now requiring more thought processing before moving forward and stating your ideas, beliefs and concerns for more effectiveness ?

Libra: 2nd House of Personal Money and Self Worth.

So did that unexpected event rattle you enough to make you realise you ARE worth it and the only person who can really make you believe in yourself is YOU ? A bit of personal financial restructuring at the same time should create a “Voila” moment very shortly, if not a good base for you to finally expand on.

Scorpio: 1st House of How you Present yourself to the World and How the World sees YOU !

The complete overhaul of your identity and how you present yourself to the world is almost complete and integrated, Just wait until the pressure is off when Saturn goes into Sagittarius and you will feel it instantly. The hard slog was worth it !

Sagittarius: 12th  House of Private Space, The Inner you and Where you go to Retreat and Evolve and Develop.

This has helped prep you for Saturn going into Sagittarius in September when your own personal restructure and development will be there for the world to see, it will just be a work in progress until 2017 ! Don’t let the pressure get to you ! It will be worth it !

Capricorn: 11th House of Friends, Community and Hopes and Wishes.

So has Saturn made you re-evaluate your Friends and Communities giving you a satisfying space to move forward from ? All the deadwood is gone so now it will be time to swim with the dolphin instead of the sharks! Your Hopes and Dreams may have morphed a bit to since 2012 !

Aquarius: 10th House of Career Success, Achievements and Worldly appreciation.

The physiological transformation of what defines Career and Worldly Success is almost complete. There may have been some tough knocks along the way but once you begin to  pop out the other side in September you will know that the challenges were all worth it ! It’s a bit like turning Pro the harder way !

Pisces: 9th House of Philosophy, Religion, Travel, Different Cultures and Higher Education.

A bit like Aquarius the knock and the hard stuff will be worth it ! What you have learned from this Psychological churning will help adjust your philosophy as you dive into the next adventure knowing that your foundations and root beliefs both psychologically and philosophically are sound and solid IF you did the work and weren’t to busy helping everyone else out through their trauma’s
