Each new moon signals a new surge of energy entering our life, this could be in the form of a person, a developing situation or an idea. Through understanding the dominant themes at play at the new moon, and employing meditative and reflective journaling techniques, we can begin to connect with this energy. In doing so we can begin to better align our mindsets towards psychological growth and spiritual wellbeing.

Pisces New Moon, March 2022 – what this energy stimulates in our psyche.

As we edge into Spring make way for this humanitarian new moon brings expansion and fresh opportunities our way. Limitations will begin to ease as fresh possibilities present themselves and life feels like it is ‘flowing’ once again. Remain open and receptive, and listen closely to your intuition. If you’re not currently on the right track expect alterations to your plans. Trust that these changes are happening for a reason and are leading you towards a more gratifying outcome. This new moon is benevolent and growth-orientated by nature, it’s on our side, urging us to make progress.

Also coming to the fore is the notion of spiritual expansion and relationship development. You may find yourself considering your actions in relation to how they serve your personal development, and those around you. You’re better able to gauge situations and understand them from different perspectives at this time. Welcome this opportunity for honest reflection and tune in to your conscience. If we’re able to realign our actions going forward with a better version of ourselves then our future is bright!

This Pisces new moon also highlights creative inspiration, experimentation and flow-states. With Uranus providing a beautiful sextile expect innovative ideas that may change the course of your life, projects or thinking. Pisces teaches us the danger of trying to overly control situations. Instead focus on learning to adapt to situations as they unfold and not to fixate on outcome of solutions. As any artist know, this mindset is the key to creative expression.

Jupiter in Pisces – What History Teaches Us!

Jupiter rules over philosophy, politics and the justice system, whilst Pisces relates to the arts, a sense of community, spiritual and creative practices. With this aspect we see people seeking to expand knowledge by delving into subjects such as spirituality and metaphysics in an effort to find universal truths (that unite us all.) We also see people taking principled stands as they abide by their conscience and their own inner sense of justice. Yes, this is the energy of the martyr and ‘the greater good’, though of course that term is highly subjective.

Let’s have a look at what happened when Jupiter travelled through Pisces in the early 1960s. In the west this took place amid the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Cold War and the Civil Rights Movement. (The conjoining of Pluto and Uranus reflects the archetypal nature of the threat and upheaval felt during this time.) Both Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandala were imprisoned for taking principled stands on issues pertaining to liberty and justice. We also saw a surge in people partaking in anti-war protests, action in the name of peace and unification. Music, poetry and art were also used as creative outlets for political commentary. People tend to feel very inspired under this influence, they feel deeply and speak from a viewpoint of moral conviction. Expect to feel these themes manifest in an area of your life under this new moon.

If you’ve been following my work for a while you may have heard me refer to Jupiter in Pisces as the ‘Spiritual classroom’. You can read the full article on this placement, complete with lots of practical tips, here:

Jupiter in Pisces: The Spiritual Classroom

Pisces New Moon Warnings for March 2022

With the full moon in Virgo on March 18th, 2022. We must take these themes and principles and work towards a practical application. We must work to ground our ideas and spiritual practices in the physical reality in which we find ourselves. Be mindful of making judgements before knowing all of the facts, or conceiving of ideas that won’t work in reality. Remember, beliefs will always differ and moral standpoints can lead to further conflict when our ego claims the upper hand. Pisces helps us to separate our sense of self from the ego. This enables us to connect with others in a deep and authentic way regardless of our differences.

Pisces New Moon Journaling Exercise for March 2022

Technique: Free Writing or Art Journal

Consider: if I were to tell you that your thoughts were the key to manifesting whatever it was that you want in life, how would you alter your mindset to bring about a better future?

Task: Imagine yourself as nothing but a manifestation of your thoughts and feelings. You have no job, you have no hobbies – all of these external identity factors are striped away from you for the purpose of this exercise. Describe yourself through drawing or free writing (don’t overthink just writing or draw as characteristics come to mind)

An example to get you started:

So, the handsome and charming salesman whom everybody thinks is the bees-knees is not the most appealing character when these external factors are striped away. He is motivated by greed and his aims in life are largely superficial. His ambition is strong and over dominates his morality, he will manipulate and swindle customers into buying products that they don’t need because it leads to greater financial gain for himself. Even in romance he chooses partners based on what he will gain from the union and how good they will look on his arm. He therefore builds few meaningful connections. However, when it comes to animals he is an absolute softy, he can’t abide by animal cruelty and travels to foreign countries to work voluntarily in sanctuaries dedicated to protecting and rehabilitating wildlife.

It is evident that to bring about a more fulfilling career and romantic life the salesman must learn navigate these facets of his life towards a higher calling. It is evident from his charity work and his fondness for animals that he is capable of much love and compassion.

TAROT MESSAGE

As I finish up my articles I like to close by drawing a tarot card. By reinforcing the message, or providing another perspective, tarot is a wonderful way to expand even further.

X Wheel of Fortune

Sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down. When I see this card it reminds me to trust in the cycle and accept that things don’t stay the same for very long. With any Pisces new moon there’s a sense of surrender, that to grow we must first let go of control and be prepared to adapt to situations as they unfold.

I sense that the wheel is indeed turning for the better on a personal and global level with Jupiter and Uranus prevalent in this lunar configuration. Growth opportunities are presenting themselves but if we’re too fixated on how things ‘should be’, or how we ‘want them to be’ then we may miss them.

PERSONAL BREAKTHROUGHS

Are you ready to open yourself up to the planetary energies for the day and to let them guide you towards your highest potential?

If so, I will support you in actively engaging with the energy of Pluto trine North Node, whether you have this configuration in your birth chart or are experiencing it by transit. Through employing meditative and reflective journaling techniques we can begin to connect with this energy and use it to align our mindsets towards psychological growth and spiritual wellbeing.

Pluto trine North Node – what this energy stimulates in our psyche.

The engines of change are revving up my friends. Pluto, representative of our deepest desires and capacity for personal transformation is forming a harmonious aspect to the North Node in Taurus. Whenever the north node is involved in a configuration we can be sure that the energies are on our side and will support us in moving towards a future self that, in the case of this Pluto trine, is more resilient, self-aware and in control of one self and one’s life path.

If you’ve been tussling with moving in a new direction or considering making some significant changes then this aspect can signify a significant breakthrough. It’s not unusual for the matter in question to have caused a certain amount of trepidation or even fear but this aspect infuses us with the strength, confidence and stamina to think “You know what, I can do this!” A beautiful Pluto trine to the North Node helps us to move towards new chapters without hesitation. If you’ve experienced difficulties until now then that was but part of a necessary adaption process, like anything sometimes we need to ‘train’ and whilst Pluto is a hard master, you can be sure if he will get you into the best shape of your life!

Pluto represents our unconscious and so this aspect often manifests in very subtle ways. Psychological breakthroughs, such as change in mindset, have the power to set us on a different life course.

Pluto trine North Node Journaling Exercise

Technique: Plan Your Week Journaling

Consider: What changes have you been considering making in your life and what steps could you make this week to move towards achieving them? (Pluto – North Node loves a strategy!)

Task: Start by writing down the positive changes that you would like to see happen in your life. Be clear and concise with your wording. These might not be achievable in a week, or even a month, but don’t worry. Now, write down three steps that you could take this week that would help you to move towards your desired outcome. If you can make two steps easily achievable, but the final one should stretch you slightly out of your comfort zone. Pluto makes us braver – you can do it! Remember the aim here is to finish off the week knowing that you’ve made progress!

An example to get you started:

I set so many good intentions in the new year, including setting up a little side venture alongside my day-job, but I lost my momentum come the end of the month. I’m still thinking about it a lot so I know it’s something that I really do want to do, but there’s just so much that needs doing it’s overwhelming!

I want to get this design venture off the ground by the summer so this week I am going to:

  • Sit down for one hour and go over what I’ve done so far to get myself back in the right headspace.
  • I am going to going to set up an Etsy account and attempt to list my first item
  • I don’t like talking on the phone but I am going to call the web designed to see if they could help me get a website set up.

PERSONAL BREAKTHROUGH MANTRA

Find a moment where you can be quiet and present. Focus on calming your nervous system. Release any tension in your muscles, and let your thoughts come and go as you slow your breathing. Consider the area of your life where you would most like to see progress and repeat the following mantra:

I will no longer be the person that stands in my way.

XIII Death

Not joking, this is genuinely the card I overturned – The Death card is ruled by Pluto and reinforces today’s themes of rebirth, transition and new chapters.

The Death card speaks of situations beyond our control that enter our life and change our course. As humans we naturally form very strong attachments and like life to be somewhat predictable, this is why we often view this card with a degree of apprehension. The Death card represents impermanence, it teaches us that change is part of the natural order and again asks us to trust in process. It reminds us that we must be prepared to let go of elements of our life that have run their course and be willing to release parts of ourselves that no longer serve our future orientation. Do you see the King pleading for mercy? This indicates that none of us, no matter how powerful, are exempt from this truth.

With a beautiful Pluto trine to the North Node you are moving into new chapters without hesitation. Obstacles are easily overcome and major breakthroughs are possible. Note the sun rising through the columns, it’s the new dawn that follows all upheaval and today you are taking giant, confident strides towards it.

Mars Square Chiron Transit and Natal Aspect

The Wounded Warrior

Are you ready to open yourself up to this planetary energy and let them guide you towards your highest potential?

If so, I will support you in actively engaging with the energy of Mars square Chiron, whether you have this configuration in your birth chart or are experiencing it by transit. Through employing meditative and reflective journaling techniques we can begin to connect with this energy and use it to align our mindsets towards psychological growth and spiritual wellbeing.

Mars square Chiron – what this energy stimulates in our psyche.

Birth Chart

When Mars is square Chiron, the Wounded Healer is in a state of tension with the God of War. As such it raises issues around one’s ability to assert themselves and go after what they want in life. People with this aspect natally often struggle with self-confidence and prefer to keep a very low profile rather than risk discomfort or failure. There’s a feeling of ‘life happening to them’ rather then them taking charge of their destiny. A victim mentality is at risk of developing if one doesn’t learn to express their assertive energy positively. The challenge with Mars square Chiron in the birth chart lies in learning to act in your own best interests, even if it risks a degree of confrontation. Believe in yourself and understand that you want and what you have to say is both valid and valuable.

Mars square Chiron Transits

Mars square Chiron experienced by transit primes us to work through insecurities and fears that have been holding us back in our life. The location of Chiron in our charts indicates where we are prone to feelings of hesitation, doubt and anxiety. These can paralyses us and blocks our progress if we don’t work through them. Consider where in your life you feel ineffective or unfulfilled, or where you’re not able to express your desires openly, this is where you need to focus at this time. This dynamic transit will help us to find resolutions to our internal struggles and turn vulnerabilities into strengths. We all have an Achilles Heel that needs addressing and now is a good time to begin working with yours.

Mars square Chiron also speaks of pain and tension that we hold in our physical bodies. Yogic practice, dynamic stretching or massage are a wonderful wat of using movement as a form of release and relaxation.

Mars square Chiron Journaling Exercise

Technique: Reflection Journaling

Consider: In what area of life you experience the greatest feelings of insecurity and how do they manifest?

Task: Reflect on your internal dialogue, some of the phrases that flicker through your mind, even if it’s only momentary or sounds absolutely mad – be honest. Now, go deeper. Read the phrase again and consider how this mindset affects you and your decision making. Perhaps there’s a sub-narrative here.

An example to get you started:

I feel the greatest levels of insecurity in romantic relationships, I recently found myself thinking “If I lose weight and take up cycling then he will fancy me”

On reflection this thought process was reaffirming the idea that I need to be something or somebody else in order to be loved. It’s telling me that I am unlovable as I am and that I need to be more. I can see how my self-worth is tied up with receiving approval from others.

WOUNDED WARRIOR MANTRA

Find a moment where you can be quiet and present. Focus on calming your nervous system. Release any tension in your muscles, and let your thoughts come and go as you slow your breathing. Consider the area of your life where you feel vulnerable and insecure and repeat the following mantra:

I am stronger than I think. I am braver than I think. I am ready to begin moving past my insecurities.

VII The Chariot

I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I overturned this card for Mars Square Chiron. To me this speaks of all that can be achieved by working through our fears and insecurities and learning to assert ourselves in a healthy and compassionate manner.

The Emperor in this card is being pulled along by two sphinxes, but notice that he holds no reigns. He is directing the chariot purely through the concentrated power of his will. To me this speaks of a healthy, unafflicted Mars that has so much drive, ambition and passion that it wills it’s way to victory. A Mars in difficult aspect to Chiron is weakened, it’s doubtful and doesn’t have the confidence or conviction to really put it’s stamp on the world.

This card is asking us to step up and master ourselves. It speaks of all the successes that will come our way if we’re able to work through our fears and align our energies wholeheartedly towards our goals. There is the potential for great progress today.

Rihanna and ASAP Rocky Astrology Analysis l Pregnant l Zodiac l Horoscope

A huge congratulations to Rihanna and Rakim (aka ASAP Rocky) who have recently revealed that they are expecting their first child together. As baby bump photos filter across the internet I thought it was high-time to look at Rihanna’s and Rakim’s birth chart to see what kind of celebrity parents they’re likely to be.

What can astrology tell us about the kind of mother Rihanna will be?

Rihanna really is a warrior princess of the celebrity world. She has her Moon and Venus closely conjoining her Aries Ascendant, meaning she’s not afraid of standing on her own two feet, or standing-up for what she believes to be right. The Moon and Venus are the two major feminine principles in our birth charts, they are receptive, nurturing and place emphasis on human connection. When these planets are in Aries in a females chart, the nature of the warrior spills out into their mothering style. Rhianna will be fiercely protective over her offspring, she will raise her child to be strong and to think for themselves. Parenting to Aries Moon Mamas has a bit of a ‘tough-love’ quality to it. They put their energy into raising children to be strong and resilient so that they will thrive when Mum is no longer around to have their back. Think a lioness with her cub here!

It’s definitely worth noting that Rhianna’s Aries Moon and Venus is in the 12th house (of Pisces) square Neptune (ruler of Pisces) and this will certainly factor into her parenting style. This placement heightens Rihanna’s creative, intuitive and psychic faculties considerably. Also, with Neptune on her MC she projects an alluring and hypnotic quality; I’ve not seen her live but I can imagine many people consider her mesmerising to watch. I find that people with this configuration are also incredibly ‘easy to identify with’. They have an innate ability to empathise and mirror people and so they’re able to connect with people on a very intimate level. They are very good at creating space for others so that they feel ‘seen’ and ‘heard’. As a mother this denotes intuition and compassion beyond measure. Rihanna will bond very deeply with her child and be very good at anticipating what her child needs. There’s no barriers with Neptune, Rihanna will live and breathe parenthood, every joy and every pain the child experiences will be internalised and felt deeply by the mother. An intense and powerful bond is likely to form.

What about A$AP Rocky’s birth chart – what kind of Dad will he be?

In sharp contrast to Rihanna’s warrior-mama approach, we have a Libran with Cancer Moon Dad to balance the energies. A$AP will be nurturing, a first class home-maker and natural diplomat. He is an extremely family-orientated man, who will take great pride in his partner and offspring, as emphasised by a warm and loving Leo Venus. A$AP has sufficient fire in his chart to give him the ‘umph’ that Rihanna would look for in a partner, but on the whole he will be conflict adverse and seek to provide a stable homelife that’s out of the public eye. It’s fascinating to watch Cancer Moon men when they have something to nurture and protect, they grow ten feet – it’s like they’ve found their calling. Rihanna might joke that he’s the ‘soft touch’ of the two but together they provide a wonderful balance of parental energies.

What challenges will Rihanna face in her role as mother?

As I said Neptune and the 12th house factor heavily in Rhianna’s chart and with her Moon and Venus featuring in this configuration her experience of relationships and nurturing are going to be influenced by this energy. The 12th house is concerned with that which is taken out of the public eye and which happens behind closed doors. Positively it has connotations with imagination and healing but negatively it denotes difficult experiences and ‘skeletons in the closet’. Similarly, whilst Neptune is spiritual and creative it is also the planet of escapism. With the square to Neptune from her Aries Moon and Venus it’s possible that Rihanna’s own early experience of being nurtured was impacted by drugs, alcohol or betrayal in some way. Rihanna likely faced difficulties in her childhood, but when these parts of the chart are activated via pregnancy it’s a spiritual opportunity to further process past events, to break the cycles and release karmic baggage. It may be challenging but this provides individual’s with an opportunity to ‘do it differently.’ So I think the biggest challenge Rhianna will encounter as a mother is facing ‘ghosts from the past.’

What do you think will be Rihanna’s top astro Mama quality?

Rihanna has so many beautiful mothering qualities. I love the feisty approach to parenting Aries Moon mothers have, they just do it their way and to hell with convention. I think that’s quite refreshing as our mothering styles are as individual as we are and it’s not a one type fits all. Aries mothers definitely pave the way in this regard.

Also, with the Pisces archetype so strong in her nurturing style, I think Rihanna is likely to build a really strong, almost psychic, connection with her children. She will have to find the right balance between compassion and tough-love but I think this enabler her to make her children feel nurtured but not molly-coddled. Transiting Neptune will also be conjunct her North Node when she gives birth, this denotes a strong spiritual connection whereby the child will help the mother move toward healing and truth.


Would you like me to have a look at your birth chart to see what your ‘Authentic Parenting Style’ is?

I believe that by playing to our strengths we can be authentic and powerful role models to our children. In this reading I help you to discover the key placements in your chart that show your natural nurturing style and how you give love (in astrology there in no difference between how we need to nurture ourselves and how we are primed for nurturing our offspring – they go hand in hand!

Full ‘Cold’ Moon in Gemini, 19th December 2021

Welcome to this astrological insight for the full moon in Gemini, December 19th 2021, also known as the ‘Cold Moon’.

Position: 27.29 degrees of Gemini/Sagittarius

Aspects: Trine/Sextile Jupiter (orb 0.42′)

Intentions that were planted around the time of the new moon earlier in the month are now coming to fruition. This may come in the form of a realisation, a rude awakening or even as a decision that needs to be made. At the time of a full moon people tend to find themselves torn in two directions as if they’re presented with two versions of themselves, the them that they were and the them that could be if they continue to work with the lunar cycle, and follow it through to it’s natural conclusion.

This buoyant full moon is both spirited and mischievous, and whilst it brings some deep learning opportunities it’s also a wonderful placement for bringing people together where they may derive pleasure from shared conversation and being in the company of others. It’s suggestive of good fortune and positive news, and an opening or surge in momentum signified by houses in which it falls.

Find your superpower and become the eye of the storm

A Gemini Full Moon is an opportunity to ask questions, to dig a little deeper and get to know the ‘real us’. By doing so we learn to anchor ourselves, not in a material sense, but through our philosophies, values and ethics. This enables us to discover what it is that we stand for, what we find true meaning in and how we may best invest our energy moving forward. The essence of a Gemini Full Moon is that of taking another step in the journey from student to teacher. If we work with it then we come out the other end a little wiser, a little more secure and with even more to offer others.

A person that masters this energy exudes a magnetic self confidence and truly does become the eye of the storm, able to withstand the chaos that life and other people often bring, without having it overtly affect their wellbeing. They also organise their time is such a way that brings them genuine pleasure, knowing what it is that they need to be contented and in turn sharing that joy with others.

Jupiter in Pisces 2022 – The Spiritual Classroom

When Jupiter transits Pisces we step into the spiritual classroom and are asked politely to leave our ego at the door. Don’t expect to walk out of this one the same person as you went in. Jupiter will remain in Pisces throughout 2022 and we’ll all be presented with opportunities for growth on the highest level.

If we accept that we don’t know everything and remain open to learning, then this can be quite the adventure! This isn’t about keeping our feet planted firmly on the ground, this is about testing our beliefs and philosophies. In many ways it’s an opportunity to turn our worlds upside down to see what can withstand the flux. This combination is associated with altered mental states and creative flow. It encourages us to be adaptable, to let in new ideas and be open to new possibilities of being.

Stick around to the end and I’ll give you 10 examples of how this might manifest in your life.

Enter the Spiritual Classroom.

When Jupiter is in Pisces events occur in our life that prompt a shift in perspective. We will be confronted by learning opportunities and encouraged to adopt a more spiritual, less materialistic, lifestyle. These learning opportunities differ in how they manifest for each of us depending on how much of a wake-up call we need to get us on the right path.

As mutable signs/planets they bring the notion of connectivity and interrelation to the fore. Phrases like “It’s not my problem” no longer wash! Through considering our small role in contribution to the larger whole – humanity, we can begin to work towards greater ends.

“What you mean I’m not the centre of the world?”

True, this can hit our ego pretty hard and Jupiter in Pisces can be humbling to say they least. However, by acknowledging this connection we also accept our ability to affect the bigger picture. This can be pretty empowering too! When Jupiter is in Pisces we acknowledge the impact of our actions, and the affect that they have on others. In this sense we become aware of our capacity to sow love and hate, positivity or negativity – Jupiter in particular asks us to be discerning and make good choices.

Meet your Spiritual Judge

Don’t forget Jupiter rules over the justice system for a reason, when Jupiter is in Pisces we meet our spiritual judge, aka our conscience or moral compass. Not daunting at all! Our soul pays the price for our actions, what we do in the outer world impacts directly on our inner world. Remember the story of Dorian Gray?

This also plays out on the larger stays and as governments, education and justice systems and considered in terms of their service to humanity.

10 Examples of how this transit could manifest for you:

  1. When confronted with another’s suffering you consider how you might ease it through selfless action.
  2. Through meeting a person whose philosophies differ considerably from your own, they open your eyes to different possibilities.
  3. You have a great job, lovely home and want for nothing – but life feels empty. You begin searching within for an answer.
  4. In commencing a new art project, you lose track of time as you explore creative ideas and experiment with new techniques.
  5. Through meditation you experience an altered mental state, reality is not what it seems.
  6. Perhaps you fall in love or have a child and suddenly find yourself wanting more than anything to make another happy, putting them before yourself.
  7. You don’t want to accept a situation, it can’t be true! Acceptance and letting go of control can sometimes be the best option. Learn to surrender to the lessons that come your way.
  8. You did something and now you feel awful about it. Listen to your conscience and let it inform how you act in the future.
  9. In acknowledging that you have free time you decide to volunteer for a local charity. Every little bit helps!
  10. You begin to question whether the powers that be are really serving the people, and where society itself still has room to grow.

The houses ruled by Pisces and Sagittarius will give a large indication of how this will manifest in your life, but at least now you know what themes to look out for!

Elon Musk: Is he the real deal? Astrology Analysis

Some call him the modern day Tony Stark, others call him the Dogefather. One thing’s for sure, Elon Musk is always at the cutting edge of technology or sending the latest meme viral. So what gives, is it all a show or does public perception reveal something of the true nature of a person?

It certainly does!

In astrology I look at a person’s Sun and their 1st and 10th houses to see the parts of their personality that they project outwards. These houses are associated with our identity, social status and career. They’re a sure-fire way of building up a picture of somebody’s persona and what they aspire towards on the public stage.

You may be wondering whether I look at Elon’s chart and think “Wow, this guy was always going be a billionaire and head a technological revolution!” I can see the themes and potential that Elon naturally has at his disposal but it was freewill and competency that enabled him to achieve what he has. Credit where credit’s due.

So, let’s take a look at Elon’s chart. I’ll focus on the areas relating to his public persona and then take a peep ‘behind the scenes’. There’s a few things about Elon that might surprise you, so stay tuned to the end…

He’s on fire!

I’m going to have to get my geek on for a second because there’s something in Elon’s chart that’s really turbo-charging his public persona. If your new to astrology bear with me on this for second.

The 10th house cusp, aka the MC, rules over social status and drive to achieve. Elon’s is involved in a powerful configuration called a T-Square. This is when two aspects of a birth chart are at odds with one another, but the strongest traits of both are channelled through a third point . For use of a better analogy this third point ‘glows hot’ in the birth chart with the combined energy of all three. This third point is his Sun – as if it wasn’t hot enough! … in his first house, which rules over his persona. Ouch, double hot!! Elon is literally shining like a Summer Sun in the eyes of others. He’s our golden boy!

As an astrologer I would put a considerable amount of emphasis on identity, career and achievement, and view them as key themes in Elon’s life.

Ahead of his time or just bonkers?

Let’s keep this simple from here on in. The big players behind Elon’s career and social status is Mars and Uranus. Despite their differences I would say that these are highly compatible in nature. Uranus is innovative, unconventional and challenges tradition, whilst Mars is concerned with self-assertion, leadership and courage. When we put these two together we have an individual who is future orientated, who thrives off pushing boundaries and bravely leads others into new territory. When someone says no way – Elon hears YES!

My best friend as a kid had this combo and when we’d play ‘Follow the Leader’ in primary school, she was intolerable when it was anybody else’s turn to be leader. She’d literally be scraping the toes of her shoes on the leader’s heels trying to get ahead. Though when she was leader she would skip along walls, swing around drain pipes and kart-wheel down hill, risking life and limb to be seen as ‘the best’ and ‘most exciting’ leader! This is the kind of energy pushing through into Elon’s public persona which as an adult can be developed into pioneering and confident leadership.

It’s also worth noting both his MC and Sun are in cardinal signs. This makes one very good at initiating change and making decisions. This, along with his Aquarius North Node and Ascendant square Pluto, is why Elon is seen as a catalyst for upheaval and transformation. His public persona is tied in with extremely revolutionary energies.

Treading a thin line – accepting risk!

We can’t ignore the fact that Elon has Gemini Rising with Mercury in the first house conjunct his Sun. Language, communication, information, ideas and humour take to the stage. This is someone who’s in-tune with the times. Though when you combine this with the somewhat rebellious and impulsive energy discussed above we have someone renowned for treading a thin line with what they think and say.

Comedians often work with this energy to find the perfect balance between shock and humour, like the jester who was the only one in court who could ‘get away with’ saying certain truths. Elon likely presents as articulate, knowledgeable, quick-witted and as having a lot of nervous energy. Though with a square to Pluto from his Gemini Ascendant he may well be renowned for his analytical mind, or for having a sharp tongue.

What you see is what you get?

Cancer Sun is in the first house, and is the focus of that turbo-charged T-square I mentioned. It’s hard to see how the gentle sentimentality of Cancer can work harmoniously with the sparky aspects discussed so far. Though many successful leaders are classed as introverts, I suspect Elon is one of them.

This placement will soften his persona, adding a compassionate and nurturing quality to his interactions with others, as well as a touch of shyness. Cancer Sun individuals are quite private, they’re selective with what they say and prefer to sit back and observe rather than dominate conversations. Elon will work hard to lead with heart and do right by others, empathy will aid in keeping him rooted and in touch with his workforce. This placement also amplifies traditional values, and I suspect Elon is proud to define himself as a ‘father’ and ‘family man’.

So with his Sun in the first, he really does ‘put himself out there for others to see.’ This placement really does scream authenticity.

A little glimpse behind the persona

Whilst it’s out with the old and in with the new on the face of it. In his personal life Elon has a strong need for order and routine. With a Virgo Moon square Saturn he’s likely to overthink things and be a bit of a worry-wort. He may battle insecurity and doubt himself often. If used positively this will translate into a humble nature and a strong drive to improve himself. Meticulous to his core, and no doubt still an engineer a heart. I bet he likes his house to be spotless and to have his clothes ironed and folded – strictly no creases!

With Mercury ruling both his Moon and Venus, passion isn’t high on Elon’s agenda. Companionship and stimulating conversation are the order of that day!

In Elon’s past he likely got too emotionally involved with everything. This would have brought him great joy at times but have been unnecessarily draining at others. Part of his purpose in this lifetime, represented by his Aquarius North Node, is to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. To get less involved on a personal level, establish emotional boundaries and to adopt a more humanitarian approach to life.

Mars Conjunct Uranus – A Bolt from the Blue

Mars conjunct Uranus becomes exact on Wednesday 20th January 2021. Whilst Uranus is associated with the crown chakra and the intellect, Mars is associated with our root chakra, and the more primal aspect of our natures. In many ways these energies really do exist at two very different ends of the spectrum and neither is better nor worse than the other.

Striking a balance

If we swing too far towards cerebral Uranus we may become aloof, disconnected, and somewhat neurotic. Though, if we swing too far towards the fire of Mars we may become too reactive fueled entirely by our instincts. Nobody exists entirely at one end or the other, nobody’s birth chart is that simple. It is our mission to unite the two and live from our heart chakra, balancing the two energies within ourselves.

Mars conjunct Uranus


I want you to Imagine this transit as bolt of lightning, it’s sudden, sharp and bright. I really like this analogy because it describes a shock, an unforeseen event. Though through the generation of light it also implies knowledge and truth. This transit it a sudden realisation, an awakening or epiphany. It can both beautiful and destructive.


Also, the way it manifests in people’s lives can differ tremendously. It can be a creative breakthrough or it could be a walking in on your partner having an affair. It’s hard to imagine how one transit could differ so widely! By its nature it is extreme, but in both instances the archetypal symbolism is the same.

Two sides of the same coin

Ok, let me explain what i mean by that. Say you’re an artist and you’ve been pushing and pushing, trying to get your ideas to come together but at each and every attempt you were just come up against a brick wall. Something isn’t quite right, a piece of the puzzle is missing, there is something you just aren’t seeing. and then ‘Ta-da!’, under this transit it all becomes clear. As if from nowhere you just get it, a bolt from the blue. You know exactly what you have to do and you’re excited, you can barely sit down and are eager to get to work.

This transit really does lend itself to breakthroughs and innovation, it’s brilliant for anyone wanting to progress projects. Though be prepared to let ideas go if at their core they’re not the right ones. Mars conjunct Uranus is like a damn sniffer dog, it can smell weakness a mile off and is prepared to knock the towers of cards down over and over again until you finally realise that it’s a better idea to build one out of bricks.

Mars conjunct Uranus lightning and fire


Anyway on that note lets look at the affair. Perhaps there’s been issues for a while but neither party has wanted to address them. The foundations are wobbly but it’s been easier to pretend that everything’s just fine. Evolutionary wise this isn’t helping either person, both are existing in a state of deception. Then this transit comes and ‘Ta-da!’, it’s ‘Wake up, this isn’t working!’ This is a revelation of a different kind, but again is a bolt from the blue to get you back on track.

Like the artist the couple are fired up and can barely sit down, though this is more anxiety than excitement.  Can you see how in both instances all the body experiences is adrenaline, the physical response is not so different. This aspect is also largely associated with risk, many people may seem braver at this time and willing to take a chance in life.

Potential of humankind

Mars is a spring of energy. It’s raw human potential, and this aspect is encouraging us to raise this energy and manifest it consciously. This can be done through projects, sports, meaningful sexual relations and creativity. However, if you’ve been blocking this channel, repressing emotions or urges then this transit will pull the plug. Holding down anger or resentment? Then circumstances may well provoke a sudden and disruptive release. Be mindful of flash tempers at this time, and try not to lash out either physically or verbally. You see there’s a strong chance that people may do something that they will later regret because the nature of this transit is explosive and does not care for moderation .’

I want to make one thing crystal clear…

I want to make one thing crystal clear, Mars conjunct Uranus isn’t purposeless or malicious, however it manifests in your life it does so with meaning. A lot of things that get us to where we need to go and that help us to become the best that we can be, hurt a little bit. If events at this time make you feel uncomfortable perhaps it’s because you’re not where you’re meant to be. It might be time for you to move on, or move forward, in some aspect of your life.

If this is turning out to be a difficult transit for you ask yourself this: Would you rather the discomfort be dragged out over months or would you rather condense it and just get it out of the way with? Either way the purpose is to get you to a better place, this is just the fast train!

I also recommend:

Speaking of Mars, this assertive go-getter is currently transiting the early degrees of Taurus. As it’s likely to be in this fixed earth sign for a while I recommend having a read of this article so that you know what to expect and what it might mean for you.

Mars Transits Taurus – Disciple of Discipline

Welcome! Join us for a conversation around the current transit of Mars through the sign of Taurus.

Is this really the energy of the bull in the china shop?

Don’t worry, we’ll touch upon what this means for you as well as some of the key things that you need to be aware of so that you don’t send the china crashing! Now let’s get started, first question…

What does Mars in Taurus mean on a really basic level?

Mars’ transit through Taurus has some incredible lessons to teach us. It helps us learn how to temper our passions. We begin to realise that hot headedness and overtly emotional reactions don’t always get us what we want, or to where we want to go. Instead we begin to view our energy as a limited resource and we become more conscious of where we channel our energy in light of what is most likely to deliver real results.

Mars in Taurus control your primal self.

You see, It’s concerned with the practical application of personal energy/power. It helps us to learn the benefits of self discipline and self-directed action. At its core our natures are wild and powerful, an incredible resource of personal energy and creativity. With Mars in Taurus we try to put reigns on our will and direct our potential in a meaningful way. This combination always makes me think of the Chariot in the Tarot deck.

I get the feeling that if used positively a lot can be achieved during this time?

Absolutely! This combination manifests the drive within us to be our own masters. It tells that if we take responsibility for ourselves and our actions then we can gain results that aren’t arbitrary (let’s see where the cards fall) but of real value not just to us but our friends, family and society.

But, what if I’m pretty laid back and this all sound like a lot of hard work?

Haha! This is exactly why we have transits. Transit allow us to experience energies that may not be easily expressed through the natal chart. So at this time, dependent on where it falls in your chart, you will have an increased appreciation of discipline and hard work. You may see something that you really want and Mars’ transit through Taurus says ‘Yes! You can have this thing you’re dreaming of but you have to be willing to put in the time and effort.’ Mars through Aries birthed much inspiration, now in Taurus it asks you to make a commitment, to accept delayed gratification and begin moving towards our long term goals. If you want it enough, then being laid-back won’t get in your way.

Mars in Taurus - Start working towards long term goals

Ok, so honestly now, what are the drawbacks likely to be?

What you need to understand about Taurus is that it’s so grounded, with individuals it’s as if roots run through their feet tethering them to the earth itself! It takes a lot to rattle or unnerve a Taurus. They are steadfast yet stubborn, whilst being both loyal and dedicated. So on one hand we’re encouraged to take our time and be patient with Mars in this sign, but this approach doesn’t always sit well with the impatient and impulsive nature of Mars. In many ways they contradict each other. As such, friction can result. Our lust for life and creative flow can feel stifled at times, whilst we may struggle with feeling rushed, flustered and slightly out of control at others.

Sounds a lot more nuanced than Mars’ transit through Aries

Yeah, I think it’s fair to say that’s true. Mars, God of War, in Taurus manifests itself in a different manner than when it transited Aries. Activism and unbridled passion give way to a more strategic approach. Mars in Taurus is territorial and incredibly defensive and will respond physically if threatened. Also, with Taurus being the second sign of the zodiac it gives ground to ‘the other’. So we have to be mindful that at it’s lower polarity this combination can breed an ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality, which may lead to tribalism and conflict.

Taurus can be rather tribal and concerned with ownership of territory

Sounds concerning, anything else that we should be mindful of?

Taurus in Mars is more than able to play the long game, and is resolute in pursuit of long term goals. You see, at this time we are capable of overcoming many obstacles through the force of our own will but when we begin thinking in terms of ‘the ends justifying the means’ it’s easy to see how this combination can be viewed as inconsiderate, if not ruthless in more extreme cases.

One other thing I will say is that Mars in Taurus is capable of withstanding pressure like no other combination. Under this energy people’s natural disposition is to cling devoutly to their principles, beliefs and even possessions. They are like a rock that will not be moved and are capable of weathering incredible opposition.

Taurus can be stubborn

I see where you’re going with this. What if people are clinging to flawed principles, or are clinging to the material at the expense of the spiritual?

Yep you got it, this will undoubtedly lead to impaired growth and actions based on flawed logic. People may become obstinate, unwilling to take advice and break ties with anybody who differs in their approach. If this spirals out of control it can lead to people being overtly controlling, if not out-right tyrannical.

What should we see this tendency in others or feel it arising in ourselves?

Take responsibility. Conflict resolution if difficult under this energy there’s no denying that, but we must all try our best to encourage dialogue and to be considerate towards other people’s perspectives. Seek the nuance in situations and steer clear of absolutist judgements against others.

And to finish on a positive?

I’d say that whatever it is that you want to achieve, this energy really can help you make major strides in that direction. You know it’s not all serious either, just play, put your ideas to the test. If they don’t take root or stand the test then learn from it and move on. What doesn’t break us makes us stronger right? I really think the realisation that we have mastery over ourselves is huge and the potential underlying this realisation is incredibly empowering.

And to anybody who want to learn more?

I think the key to understanding how Mars’ transit through Taurus is likely to function is to read generally around the two archetypal energies at play. I cover them in the following two articles:

Capricorn New Moon, January 2021 Darkness before the Dawn

Welcome to this astrological insight for the new moon in Capricorn, January 13th 2021.

Position: 23.13 degrees of Capricorn

Aspects: Conjunct Pluto

Are you ready for what is likely to be the most action packed time in 2021?

Pressure is building at this new moon, and with the added dose of Aquarius/Uranus energy, many will feel a sense of foreboding, anticipation or even excitement. If you listen carefully you can hear the creaks of old foundations as they begin to give way. When Pluto is conjunct a new moon we must all work to master our emotions so that we are no longer ruled by them. When the will has mastery over our emotions we can use them to propel us forward. On the contrary, if they possess us then they will always pull us backwards. If you find yourself in navigating through dark times then remember that your personal dawn is just around the corner.

Forward motion and change are the only constants and circumstances will bring an end to that which no longer serves a purpose in our evolutionary growth. Try and let go of rigid thought patterns and cultivate hope for this turning point and the direction it’s taking you in. Future realisations are now trying to take root and we must make room by letting go of obsolete and detrimental factors in our lives. Set positive intentions and stretch your hand out to meet them.

Pluto serves to expose dishonest motives or flawed logic. Therefore any structures built on such flawed principles will begin to disintegrate. It may be a business, a relationship or even a mindset, but if it’s necessary to dismantle it in order to build it stronger then Pluto in Capricorn will see it done. In this sense try and see passed any losses to the opportunities that are becoming available as a result. Look forward to new practical beginnings that are more likely to draw meaning and genuine prosperity towards you.

There is no half way measures with this new moon and without exercising sufficient constraint many may succumb to emotional outbursts, fits of temper and rash actions. This is going to be even more pronounced with Mars’ square to Jupiter and tightening conjunction to Uranus. When Pluto comes to play there’s no hiding our true colours. People will be fuelled primarily by their instincts and heated feelings will take to the driver’s seat. Use the new energy available through Mars in Taurus, find practical outlets for your emotions instead of giving way to restlessness and mood-swings.

We may experience what seems like a night of storms but just around the corner is a new dawn. Fix your eyes on the future and leap confidently into the the unknown of tomorrow. But beware, fixate solely on the past and you risk being buried beneath yesterday’s rubble.

Don’t forget to…

The energy at this new moon is intense, people may well see things in extremes, black and white, future or past, life and death. Temperance is going to be our greatest ally in the coming days. If you can use it in your own life and have some to spare please reach out to others. Many may be finding it difficult to manage difficult situations and strong emotions this month. Let’s all keep an eye out for those struggling with mental health issues too, as this time may be quite triggering.

If you find yourself struggling you may be able to find some good sources of support here.
