Astrologer’s Diary

In London? Into astrology? Want to know the secrets that Shelley von Strunckel and I use for our work with Vogue, The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan and more? Join us for afternoon tea in Shoreditch and I’ll also send you a one-page chart wheel if you confirm your attendance on Twitter to me. Details here – limited seats at £35!  Thanks to everyone on Twitter for the feedback about last week’s prediction about Scotland’s vote for independence. By the way, if you are not following me on Twitter, it’s the best way to keep up with astrology, but also to access some interesting stargazing websites like Solaris ,where you can also pick up a free newsletter (I have written for it this month). Find me @jessicacadams on Twitter now if you haven’t already done so. Moving right along to the week ahead, what bliss it is to see Jupiter trine Uranus on Thursday 25th September at 7.18pm in London. This is where Scotland will really gain her independence! By that, I mean there will be a genuinely productive, thoughtful and creative attempt by the English to give almost half the Scots nation what it asked for; some genuine freedom, yet without losing the ‘union’ part of the Union Jack. Beyond the British Isles, this stunning pattern spells wonderful news for all the world’s children. Leo rules youth and the young – so organisations like UNICEF will have breakthroughs to announce. Beyond that, children’s education, entertainment and basic needs will finally go onto the radar. Child poverty and child abuse are just two areas Jupiter in Leo can clean up and sort out.

aries

Aries: 22-28 September 2014

Aries, hold your horses where your partner is concerned. This also applies to your former or potential partner too. I know the New Moon in Libra on Wednesday 24th September will usher in the birth of something new, for the pair of you. However, Mercury, the planet of agreement, communication and negotiation is moving backwards, and this is too soon to call. Keep your verdict open until every single fact has actually been processed; that will take time (if you want to know more about the Mercury Retrograde cycle now, please see my story on this website). This is an epic week full of useful change. Pluto turns direct in your zone of career, university life and volunteering on Tuesday 23rd September. After a long period in which nothing came together for you, there will be a huge forward thrust. And as usual, it’s all about who/what is in control! I can also see Jupiter in Leo quincunx Chiron on Tuesday 23rd September, and then the long-awaited Jupiter in Leo trine to Uranus in Aries (your sign) will take place on Thursday 25th September. A glittering door will open onto the next generation, born 20 years or more after you, or the relationships which will bring this generation closer. Go straight through it and don’t look back. In tandem with this amazing open door, you will be given astonishing freedom to be yourself. Sure, profiles and appearances matter, but just be who you are. In London? Into astrology?

taurus

Taurus: 22-28 September 2014

Taurus, you have had so many good intentions where your travel, education, publishing, internet, foreign or academic agenda is concerned. Now you have no choice; Pluto will move forward this week and even as you read this, you know very well you must harness all your willpower to finally get some control over what is going on. Begin by looking deeply into who/what appears to dominate you and why you allow that to happen. Because you only have yourself to answer to in this situation; don’t give your power away to him, her, them or ‘it’ because actually, it’s you who has taken your hands off the reins (and when that happens, someone or something else will always try to yank your chain). Some other notes; there is a new start for your working life, your body or your lifestyle near Wednesday but allow weeks for this to become firm and final. Read the fine print and allow for delays and changes. I am leaving the best until last. You are in the perfect time and place, for the very best outcomes with your house, flat, family, household, home town and/or homeland. Of course things have been steadily improving in this department for weeks, but this is a really epic turning point and you would be crazy to ignore the opportunity. In London? Into astrology?

gemini

Gemini: 22-28 September 2014

Gemini, you have known for months, that you could potentially change yourself and your life, if you could only harness your willpower to take back the controls of your business interests, company resources, house, apartment, valuable possessions, income or investments. The issue has been timing, because Pluto has been sliding backwards. His sudden turn forwards will give you the momentum you need to do what it takes. The result? Empowerment at last. There also appears to a fresh start or new era involving babies, children or young adults. Sometimes the connection is professional or involves your part-time commitments. Usually it’s personal. Sometimes it’s so personal that this is about a relationship where pregnancy, step-children or adoption is forthcoming. So far, so interesting, but as Mercury is retrograde, please note; nothing is fixed, final, firm or finished and details may change or reverse within weeks. There are two fabulous stories to look at, as the week ends. One is a group commitment involving a friend which could be utterly liberating, not to say thrilling. The other is your way with words, ideas and images which you already know is on the up; what happens near Thursday will take you higher. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

cancer

Cancer: 22-28 September 2014

Cancer, you are affected by the New Moon more than the other signs of the zodiac, as the Moon is your ruler. Normally we might predict that what happens around Wednesday 24th September is a fresh start for your family, household, home town, homeland, house or apartment. The beginning of a new era, at least for the next 12 months. Instead, we have a false start, rather than a fresh start, as although everything may seem to be chugging along, within weeks you will find things stall or turn backwards. Be sharply aware of this if you need to read any fine print and check to see what would happen with a family plan (say) or a flatmate’s commitment, should things be delayed or altered. The other story that starts your week is the new direction with (or for) your partner. This also applies to former or potential partners. And it certainly applies to your enemies or great rivals. In all cases this man or woman is an agent of deep change for you, in terms of the way you handle power issues. After months of backsliding and going nowhere, you are now in a position to actually do something. The week ends with a stunning trine which will give you the opportunity or solution you need with your money, business interests, possessions, charity, house or flat. It’s all been improving for you since July and it’s just going to get better – you know it. The way you define your success and status is also evolving in the most incredible way. They never use the words ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’ in career lectures at school but they surely should. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

leo

Leo: 22-28 September 2014

Leo, the first thing to say about your chart this week, is that after months of no action, you can finally move on body issues and also address questions about the power structure at work (or with your other role in life). Pluto moves direct in the Sixth House of your horoscope, which rules your food, drink, exercise, sleep, medical care and alternative health practitioners. The state of limbo is over and the new world is just beginning, but you absolutely must harness your willpower in order to feel more empowered about the situation. And on no account let someone/something dominate you; it’s your body! The work issues are highly political and all I can say is, the game of musical chairs which stopped and started, will now restart. Moving right along, be extremely cautious with a new beginning linked to the internet, media, publishing, phones or computers near Wednesday. It could be affected by changes, delays, technical error or human flakiness so be aware. The week ends with two magnificent promises. You can now snap up a solution or opportunity which will change your image or look for the better. And you can operate as a free agent, with the most electrifying possibilities for you as a publisher, student, teacher, traveller. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

virgo

Virgo: 22-28 September 2014

Virgo, your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde in your zone of money, business, houses, possessions, charity and apartments. Thus, despite the fact that you might be fooled into thinking you are making a brand new start near Wednesday, you are actually making a first attempt, or a dress rehearsal. The reason for this is that computers, flakey human nature, the mail, freak transport/travel conditions, erroneous paperwork or other X factors will surely affect the conversation or the signatures within a few weeks. This is no big deal; however if a delay or change would cost you dearly, for heaven’s sake read the fine print and have Plan B. The other issue this week is your son, daughter, young relative or god child. Your professional or part-time involvement with youth. Your relationship with someone who could bring children into your life. In all cases, you will rapidly be in a position to make long overdue changes, as Pluto turns direct and you escape Limbo Land. You need to do something that will make you feel as if you are holding the reins again, so do it. The superb trine from Jupiter, the planet of growth, expansion and improvement to Uranus, the planet of freedom, ends the week. I say this all the time to you, but focus on what you do without credit, recognition or acknowledgement. Alternatively focus on what you submerge; your hidden depths; your big secrets. You also need to remember that although fiscal or material independence is here (it’s a revolution!) you really must allow for that Mercury Retrograde cycle for a while. In London? Into astrology?

libra

Libra: 22-28 September 2014

Libra, the New Moon in your sign would normally coincide with a fresh start in terms of your name, profile, image, personal appearance and packaging. I say ‘normally’ because Mercury is retrograding through Libra, your own sign, and as a result this is not the full story. In fact, there will be more news, changes or fresh details to emerge and this will either send you back to the drawing board, result in a diary reschedule, or even a total u-turn. Be sharply aware of digital or printed matter involving your name (did they even spell it right?) and if cosmetic surgery, public relations or other major ‘Me’ issues are on your list, have alternatives ready and make sure you have back-up. Far more important than mere packaging is the loaded question of your family, house, flat, household, home town or homeland. You’ve been really held back and held up for months, yet at last you can do what you promised yourself would happen, a long time ago. Great. Remember that unless you take the steering wheel, others (or the universe itself) takes the wheel from you! As you move towards the weekend two sensational things will happen. First, a group involving friends, or a friend who is networked into your group, will change your life for the better. Second, you will realise that your partner is much more than just a husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend; this person is your key to electrifying liberation. This applies to former and potential partners too – and even enemies – this human being is a channel for a revolution and it will set you utterly free. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

scorpio

Scorpio: 22-28 September 2014

Scorpio, your ruling planet Pluto turns direct at last on Tuesday 23rd September at 1.35am in London (adjust for your time zone). This is a huge deal for you, as you are so sensitive to issues about power and control, especially with the internet, media or publishing. We might add basic communication to that list (hearing and listening) and perhaps language and literacy, or computers and phones. Whatever you have been dealing with, it has been months since you will have felt as empowered and ready, as you do from Tuesday. The basic truth is, unless you take a deep breath and really take something or someone on, you are never going to enjoy the satisfaction that is promised in your chart. And it goes beyond satisfaction. It’s about superpowers! The New Moon on Wednesday is a reminder to leave things open-ended with your invisible role, or your dark secret. What you do without credit, or what you cover up from other people, is quite frankly a work in progress. And it’s progress which goes backwards and forwards, so bear that in mind. Do take full advantage of the most incredible opportunity or remedy for your C.V. near Thursday, though. This kind of door only opens once every 12 years. Jupiter in your zone of ambition, position and mission will trine Uranus in your zone of lifestyle – incorporating your work ethic. Freedom’s just another word for…fill in the rest. In London?

sagittarius

Sagittarius: 22-28 September 2014

Sagittarius, your ruling planet Jupiter will form a wonderful trine with Uranus, the planet we associate with freedom, independence and liberty on Thursday. This momentous event happens at around 7.18pm in London, and it will be felt all over the world – depending on your chart and location you will feel it plus or minus two days. You will be offered a way out of a problem, or a fantastic way to move on up to something bigger and better in your life, as the week ends. It will involve travel, the internet, publishing, foreign people or places, your belief system or education. Of course your entire life is an education at that point because your intellectual, geographical and spiritual horizons are expanding so rapidly. You will seldom feel as classically Sagittarian as you do, at that point. Uranus in Aries is also telling you that there is nothing textbook about children, godchildren or young relatives in your life. There are no cliches about the relationships that would bring children into your world. There is no tired old narrative about youth related projects, or jobs involving the young. Instead you are utterly free to make it up as you go along. It’s a Brave New World. The only final note on your chart this week involves a group of people numbering friends or social media acquaintances. What looks like a new start is a wobbly beginning with plenty of changes and delays ahead; bear that in mind. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

capricorn

Capricorn: 22-28 September 2014

Capricorn, there are four separate, equally important stories taking place in your life this week. One of them is historic and it will alter the way your life runs for quite some time to come. Let’s start with that one – because you only get one Jupiter-Uranus trine like this in your life and it is happening on Thursday 25th September. Essentially, it’s about your money, house, apartment, possessions, business interests and/or charity commitments. Anything or anybody which obstructs your growth and expansion will vanish. Anything or anybody which can help you have more, enjoy more, do more will open a door. You would have to speculate that this turning point involves your mortgage, property sale/purchase, renovations or the gesture made by a member of the family or household. Even if it does not, there is a sensational episode involving your people or your place near Thursday. Thus, your family, home town, homeland, apartment, house or household opens the door to radical change and you feel the oxygen blasting into your universe and the usual tethers falling away. Two more things about your chart this week. Your name, personal appearance or profile is now in the change zone after months of limbo. Take control. Secondly, despite the fresh start you are making with your role, goal, plan or position near Wednesday, please be aware that this process will move backwards and forwards, hitting delays, possible errors or even u-turns over the next few weeks. Read the fine print, have Plan B and be a realist about this. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

aquarius

Aquarius: 22-28 September 2014

Aquarius, your ruling planet Uranus makes a momentous trine to Jupiter on Thursday 25th September which will allow you to go even further with the internet; the media; multimedia; publishing. You could also add languages, public speaking, singing/songwriting, sign language, writing and all forms of communication. Sure, you’ve come a long way in the last few years and taken other people with you. Your radical departure from stale, stuck old ways of operating has set you free, given you thrilling cerebral adventures and also excited others who get it. Anyone who doesn’t get it is starting to look like a dinosaur. In any case, Thursday moves you forward. So far forward you will never look back. At around the same time, the one thing you need to happen with (or for) your partner will take place – with the Universe calling the shots on what you need. This applies to your former or potential partner, too. What you need for a more fulfilling life (living large) will unfold. Should you have an enemy or rival, bizarrely enough, they will soon prove themselves to be a blessing in disguise. All that remains is for me to repeat last week’s Mercury Retrograde warning. I don’t care how certain something or someone new seems to be, in terms of your travel, publishing, education, university or internet agenda. It will stall or slide around, so read the fine print and have Plan B. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

pisces

Pisces: 22-28 September 2014

Pisces, you are on track for a necessary revolution with your money, apartment, house, business, possessions or charity. At the same time you are not on track because Mercury is retrograde and despite the independence now on offer, you may have to put up with changes or delays over the next few weeks until you can finally sign off on the facts or figures. Mercury is the messenger of the gods and when he is in this mood, the story alters. All you really have to do is factor this in, when you are accepting signatures or handing them out – and remember all discussion is subject to flux. Say that word very carefully, Pisces! Ultimately, though, you will find a remarkable new world to experiment with and inventing a new way to earn, own or owe is part of the deal. Jupiter in Leo is also doing you favours in your working life and a large number of Pisceans will take on new jobs or assignments now. Even if you remain with the old set-up, you will be handed a sparkling solution or offer close to Thursday which utterly alters your lifestyle for the better. All that remains is for me to mention your network. It may be in the real world (much healthier than the internet, right?) or divided between Twitter and the pub, but Pluto’s forward thrust has been a long time coming. You have literally spent months trying to get things under control with your friend, or this group, and every time you claimed some new ground for yourself, you lost it again. Well, now you are on a firm footing. Look deeply and honestly at questions about control. Handle them wisely. In London? Into astrology? The psychic world?

Your Week September 15 through 21

Astrologer’s Diary

First up, will Scotland become independent following the vote on Thursday 18th September? I was shown a horoscope at the Astrological Association conference for the start of polling which reveals Saturn, the planet of pessimism, fear and paranoia in the Second House of the economy. It’s the Private Frazer (Dad’s Army) planet – the catchphrase being ‘We’re all doomed. Doomed, I tell ye!’ . That looks like a ‘No’ vote to me. The Scots will vote against independence on the basis of economic fear, shown by Saturn in the Second House. However, if you are a ‘Yes’ voter the good news is, they are holding the election on Mercury Retrograde Shadow, so this result will not stick. There will be another vote in time to come – wait. However you will see typical Mercury Retrograde problems over the course of the vote, the counting and the media reporting –  missing postal votes, wrongly printed forms, bad weather preventing voting or counting, erroneous media reporting and so on. Following up from last week’s forecast about our oceans - The New York Times reported:  For the first time since the Fukushima disaster three and a half years ago, Japan’s new nuclear regulatory agency declared Wednesday that an atomic power plant was safe to operate. And what’s the astrological verdict on that? Not great. The announcement was made right on the Pisces-Virgo Full Moon with slippery Neptune. By the way, thanks to all of you on Twitter for your feedback about that Kate Middleton pregnancy prediction (made last December). More next week!

aries

Aries: 15-21 September 2014

Aries, the only issue with your presentation, packing and profile at the moment is the way you go about things; if you are too radical you will alienate people rather than get them on side. I am sure you feel like going One Step Beyond, to quote Madness, but even though Uranus, the planet of revolution, is active in your own sign of Aries – you could go too far. One of the issues for you is your natural desire to reform everything. Uranus is very much associated with the notion of a better world. It’s about an improved future, not a stuck past or stale present. Reform with issues which revolve around your reputation, brand, appearance and so on will be much easier if you can meet others halfway. Even if you do feel individuals or companies are dinosaurs, try to shake their paws. We only recently had a Mercury-Uranus opposition in the heavens, which has created a situation where it would be all too easy, to go much too far.


taurus

Taurus: 15-21 September 2014

Taurus, as you’ve known very well for the last year or two, you only feel truly alive when you are doing something confidential or classified – to the point of being clandestine. This feeling of full-tilt living is electrifying, but the irony is, it only comes when you are either sneaking around behind people’s backs (you will have to be a highly developed human being to admit you have been doing this) or working on something perhaps more elevated, yet also undeniably hush-hush. The reason for this – and why it matters so much this week – is Uranus in the forthright sign of Aries – tucked away in the hidden Twelfth House of your solar chart. What you are now going through, in the second half of September, is a vivid confrontation with everything you have been working towards, whether you knew it or not. And perhaps it’s time to address your need to rebel, or revolt, and the way you’ve channelled that – far below the radar.


gemini

Gemini: 15-21 September 2014

Gemini, there is no way you would return to the friendships or groups of the past. You have either left them behind, or you have maintained them, but renovated them, so that what you have in your social life and social media networks today is genuinely thrilling. Uranus, the planet now in charge of your old friends, new friends and tribal or team involvements, is behind those thrills. The price you pay for doing your own thing, though (and doing it your way) is an occasional lesson about compromise and practicality. If you want change, and you seem to want it all the time with these people, then you do have to step down from your more radical ideas and try to moderate your approach. This applies no matter if you are pursuing a new/better/different world with the group in question, or outside them – trying to reform a team or friendship from within. This week reminds you to keep it real and actually make it work.


cancer

Cancer: 15-21 September 2014

Cancer, the planet which dominates your career zone this week is Uranus, discovered in 1781, the year that a scientist called Galvani discovered a new form of electricity. It was so potent it appeared to make a dead frog jump. This striking image applies to your profession or other chosen field (you may be a student or volunteer) and with a Mercury-Uranus opposition just days behind you, this jumpy atmosphere lingers. Perhaps you feel like the dead frog, being brought to live by strange new currents. Or maybe you are working for (or with) people who are also behaving like Kermit on electrodes. The whole point of this, though, is to feel alive in a different way. I hope I have not stretched the analogy too far. Uranus is about ‘Vive la revolution!’ and to hell with the past. The only concern is that you don’t burn your bridges and totally alienate people, or disconnect from what is actually practical. And it’s a big concern this week.


leo

Leo: 15-21 September 2014

Leo, if you want to travel, study, teach, write or publish in an utterly 21st century way, then you have to be a realist. This is not something a true revolutionary would even consider. Danton and Robespierre did not generate the French Revolution by being reasonable chaps. Yet, you also have to admit that if you are genuinely going to pull off some of your wilder and more thrilling visions, you need to get real. The problem with any revolution, no matter if it’s political in nature, or personal, is the process. Uranus, the planet now affecting you, is notorious in astrology for hurling you into a new future without any preamble. When everything seems so sudden, so new, so exciting yet also so tense – it can be all too easy to forget common-sense rules about making change work. Uranus is associated with Saturn, his son, who was a rebellious adolescent. If you feel like a surly teenager, forget it. That won’t work. Strategy will!


virgo

Virgo: 15-21 September 2014

Virgo, your ruling planet Mercury recently opposed Uranus, the planet of reform, revolution and radical thought. This took place (this will not surprise you) on the horoscope axis which describes your money, house, business interests, apartment, taxation, possessions, charity commitments and so on. What you must now do is understand the importance of long-term thinking. The peculiar thing about this transit, where Uranus is passing through your solar Eighth House, is the short-term thinking it encourages. There may actually be no thought of a future taking place at all – just an endless sense of ‘now’ or ‘next’. In other words, you are living for the moment, and living day to day, as things unfold – yet now more than ever, you must peer into 2015, 2016 and beyond and lean heavily on your practical, grounded nature to help you. You are an earth sign, after all, and must now be down-to-earth about these amazing changes.


libra

Libra: 15-21 September 2014

Libra, the transit of Uranus through your opposite sign, Aries, has some fairly common effects. A separation from a partner is one. A feud with an enemy is another. Beyond that, there is a broad spectrum of scenarios, and I am sure you are living with one at the moment – no matter if your concern is a husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, ex-partner or potential lover. No matter if your concern is a rival, enemy or opponent. No matter if your partners are purely professional and work-based, or personal. The challenge with this transit is to stay grounded. Uranus can make you feel very wired, so that sleep becomes difficult and life feels far too buzzy – the air hums with electricity. An old trick is to literally stand with your feet on the grass and feel the connection to the earth, which holds you security when nothing else seems fixed at all. You should also remember that you have a right to plan ahead. And that it can be done.


scorpio

Scorpio: 15-21 September 2014

Scorpio, you seem to be moving inexorably towards some kind of revolution in your chosen field, no matter if you work for yourself, or work for a large corporation. This also applies to your life as a student or volunteer. The currents in your horoscope suggest there is no turning back. You have swum out too far, and gone off in such an extreme direction (by the standards of more conservative people) that you can’t click your fingers and return to the year 2011. Why should you, anyway? You are on a far more exciting and interesting path, when every time you divert from the norm (or divert from Norm, if Norm is your boss) you connect with people who are just as galvanised as you are, about doing things differently. Better. Let’s face it – better. The only caveat with all of this is the need for a reasonable revolution. You can’t just charge in like some deranged version of George Washington. Compromise is the only way.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 15-21 September 2014

Sagittarius, if you are going to get what you want from your children, then you have to be a realist about everything. This also applies to people who influence your child’s life very much – anyone who co-parents with you, or who educates them, for example. Realism is the only way, because otherwise it would be far too easy to go out on a limb and disconnect completely. The same basic principles now apply to your godchildren, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. And naturally, to a relationship where pregnancy, adoption or step-parenthood is an option. Finally, some Sagittarians work or volunteer with (or for) the very young, and it is this association which now requires a common-sense, practical approach. I am sure this seems at odds with the atmosphere around you. It is crackling with tension and nervous energy, and it may feel as if only a radical move will suffice. Peer into 2015 and 2016, though. You need to plan ahead. And try to own your need to be free. To be independent. Everything that is happening in your personal or family life now is an accurate mirror image of that.


capricorn

Capricorn: 15-21 September 2014

Capricorn, you may be constructing your dream home (two sheds optional) or settling into a new residence in a most unusual neighbourhood. You may be reonstructing your family or household. You may just be painting the bathroom. However Uranus in the Fourth House is affecting you, there is a tremendous need to meet other people in the middle. This may concern a one-on-one relationship (a parent) or a broader relationship (the one you have with your home town or homeland). Essentially this transit liberates you from the past, which must seem more stuck and stale, with every month that goes by. Yet at the same time, if you want to be a free spirit, you have to understand the need for sane compromise. Fortunately you are ruled by sensible Saturn and you are an earth sign, which helps. Your house, apartment, family, home town, household or homeland is now at the heart of necessary reform. Just remember that heads do not have to end in onion baskets while women knit. Statues do not have to topple. This is only likely, however, if you have planets in Aquarius.


aquarius

Aquarius: 15-21 September 2014

Aquarius, your ruling planet Uranus is now timing a brand new direction for you as a writer, public speaker, songwriter, lyricist, blogger, website designer and so on. To this list I might also add communication in general – so foreign language skills, signing for the deaf and the use of new technology (like the ever-evolving smart phone) to connect you in thrilling new ways. The new direction you are taking in the second half of September does require some thought, though. If you find yourself acting like the young Marlon Brando or James Dean, you know you’re probably just living your teen rebel fantasy, rather than actually engaging with the words, the images or the technology and making it function for you! In other words, with Uranus as your ruling planet, it’s all too easy to screw up the process of necessary change and improvement, by succumbing to a second adolescence. Far better, perhaps, to meet others halfway. Those stickers you see on supermarket food (New! Improved!) could apply to your internet life now, but unless others are comfortable, nothing improves.


pisces

Pisces: 15-21 September 2014

Pisces, if your financial or property situation is bound up with another Piscean, or a Virgo, then you are no doubt feeling like a cat on a hot tin roof, as the current Uranus in Aries cycle is affecting both of you simultaneously. However. No matter which zodiac signs are now involved with your money, house, company, apartment, business, possessions or charity – you have to be highly strategic. The kind of cycle you are involved with now, prohibits common sense. There is nothing sane, contemplative or steady about it. And that is half the problem. While nobody would deny you the undeniable thrill of pursuing something radically different, and excitingly progressive – you have to remember just how traditional and conservative others can be. This applies to people who are caught up with your money, property or possessions individually, but also collectively, like banks. Try to read hearts and minds. Then revolt.

Your Stars September 8 through 14

Astrologer’s Diary

The sign Pisces is associated with fish, of course, and the idea of drifting. Neptune has always ruled the sea, and he also rules Pisces. Any activity involving those two players usually tallies with major news headlines about the quality of our oceans; endangered fish species; ocean mining; underwater nuclear tests and tragic nuclear plant ocean spills. Astrology is about synchronicity – the people’s time – which has nothing to do with mainstream time, or the clock and calendar. Instead, it draws our attention to planetary issues which need fixing. This week, September 8th through 14th, marine, ocean and sea life issues will explode out of the water. The Sun opposes Chiron in Pisces on Monday 8th September at 3.43am in London. There is a Full Harvest Moon in Pisces on Tuesday 9th September at 2.38am. Venus opposes Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday 10th September at 11.50am. It may be whale beachings, unusual dolphin sightings, or (unfortunately) tragically obvious and critical ocean issues which wake us up this week – but the signs are clear – it’s time to focus on the sea.

aries

Aries: 8-14 September 2014

Aries, the Full Moon in Pisces, Neptune there as well – and Chiron – suggest it’s time to turn to what you cover up, or do alone, or do without recognition. Things are about to come to a head, in terms of the amount of confused or confusing circumstances which surround what you keep secret, do in hibernation, or pursue, far behind the scenes. This is incredibly useful. You deserve escapism as much as anyone, and I am sure that your secret world, solitary existence or unseen role has given you a way out of reality. Nevertheless, you need a reality check about the non-reality so you can pull it into some shape, it seems. Mars also enters Sagittarius on Saturday 13th September at 10.56pm. From that point on please be sharply aware of what you set up in 2015 and 2016 in terms of foreign travel, emigration, study, teaching, publishing or your beliefs. You are creating something you must live with, from December 23rd 2014, and live with in every sense of the word; you will not be able to lightly or easily wriggle out of, what you set up from this weekend forward. Lower the stakes.


taurus

Taurus: 8-14 September 2014

Taurus, be super-conscious of what you are setting up in terms of your money, business interests, possessions, charity, house or apartment – from Saturday onwards. It would be so easy to be pulled this way and that, by currents which are strong and rapid. But please do bear in mind that next year, and even the year after that, you would hit learning experiences you would give anything to avoid now when Saturn the teacher moves into this zone of your chart! So read the fine print. Do your homework. Before you plunge in, remember that from Christmas this year, through next year and even into 2016, you will pay a heavy price for any impulsive decisions you are about to make, until 26th October. Moving right along – you also need to look at the group, and the friendship inside that group, and put some boundaries in. Or back in! Of course you have been trying to do this forever, but this Full Moon makes it non-negotiable. And if you want to walk away from a friendship or group project which is frankly not worth it, look up at that Full Moon and wave goodbye.


gemini

Gemini: 8-14 September 2014

Gemini, the sign of the fishes, Pisces, rules your career, your social status, your place on the corporate or academic ladder, your life at university and your place in the world. The Piscean fishes also swim in two directions simultaneously, so they are confused and confusing. One issue in particular will manifest this for you, near the Full Moon this week (look up and you will see it). So what do you do? Well, you try to figure out how things slid this far, and what you can do to control the tides. This is actually quite controllable, however you need to contain and control what is going on. The weekend brings the entry of Mars into Sagittarius, which rules your enemies, opponents and rivals. It also rules your former, current and potential partners. Now, through the end of October, be truly cautious about plunging into rapid-fire decisions or even unthinking action – about this person, or through them. I say this because Saturn is poised to enter Sagittarius in December, which is not that far away, and no astrologer wants you to be living with a heavy situation you could have avoided.


cancer

Cancer: 8-14 September 2014

Cancer, in your solar chart, the sign of Pisces rules your foreign, travel, internet, publishing, academic, education and religious agenda. Something on that list is no doubt on your radar as you read this, but only because you are ruled by the Moon and we have a Full Moon up ahead. What does this tug of war between the Sun and Moon bring? A useful conflict, either inside yourself, or in the outside world. Things will not add up, blend, merge or agree. This lack of comfort spurs you on to figure out why things became so borderline chaotic and what you can do to retrieve some semblance of order and organisation. The other issue to watch now (from the weekend, anyway) is your daily workload and your relationship with your body. I am sure you will be tempted to leap into action, between  Saturday and the end of October. But do be a total realist about the outcomes, next year, and even into 2016. What are you signing up for? One example might be plunging into a heated work issue which you assume will be over by Halloween but haunts you for the next two years. Avoid, avoid.


leo

Leo: 8-14 September 2014

Leo, from this weekend, there will be a white-hot issue about your children, godchildren or young relatives to attend to. Alternatively the issue will concerna relationship which may end in pregnancy, fostering, step-parenthood or adoption. Finally, some of you may be drawn into issues about all the world’s children; for example, work or part-time plans and projects which speak directly to the generation born 20 years or more after you. Mars in Sagittarius, from this weekend, will turn up the heat and reduce the patience. Don’t be caught, though! Whatever you begin from this weekend through late October will extract a heavy price from you in 2015 and 2016 unless you deliberately peer into the long-term ramifications of your short reaction-time impulses. This week is also about your money, house, business, apartment, possessions or charity. Clarify, contain and control. That’s your mantra. I am sure that Full Moon will clean out the swimming pool and show you what is there – or not there. Remove the weeds, fix the rust, and get the filter operating once again.


virgo

Virgo: 8-14 September 2014

Virgo, the issue with your former, current or potential partner is simple – this person has been a channel for questions that go way beyond his or her personality, and into much broader issues. This also applies to enemies, rivals or opponents. The issues revolve around what is too much, too far, too impossible, too unacceptable. They also revolve around your own feelings about escaping the real world. Because for whatever reason, this chemistry or alchemy with him (or her) has been your escape. It takes great insight to see this, yet the Full Moon will enlighten you. The weekend brings Mars in Sagittarius and a general word of advice from your horoscope about your house, flat, home town, household, family and/or homeland. On no account rush in where angels fear to tread. Why is that foolish? Because from Christmas through to the end of 2016, the ripple effect from rushed decisions you make, now through the end of October, could be heavy indeed. Of course you’re going to have *some* decision to make, soon. But keep the stakes relatively low.


libra

Libra: 8-14 September 2014

Libra, the internet, the media, publishing, languages, literacy, computers or other communication concerns will come up this weekend. And after that, they may stay for two years, if you are not careful. Be meticulous about avoiding any situation or person, from Saturday forward, which common sense or research tells you could be a burden in 2015 and 2016. Saturn will follow Mars into your Third House of words, and connection, and communication in general. There will be the usual sense of needing to rush/push/push back that arrives with this cycle but think deeply about the realistic outcomes for you next year. The week is also very much about your work ethic, your lifestyle, your daily routine and your body. They are entwined issues in astrology. A wake-up call is coming and not before time. If you were not to hear the alarm bell ringing this week, you might have drifted further and further out – and become quite lost. Nobody loves a Full Moon, but this one is doing you a service. Be particularly hip to issues about what you put into your body, or how you service it.


scorpio

Scorpio: 8-14 September 2014

Scorpio, this is one of those cycles when you basically have to watch yourself, watching yourself. There is money at stake, or perhaps your house, business, company, possessions, apartment or charity. No matter how compelled you feel to act first and think later (from Saturday) bear in mind that in 2015 and 2016 there will be obstacles on the path, and periods of slow progress. A great deal of this will stem from the choices you make from this weekend, through late October, so be supremely aware of that and avoid the possible pitfalls, coming to you from the future. Mars is the god of war, and if there is a battle ahead, you may want to be a total realist about how things might pan out, long-term. This week is useful in terms of the children, godchildren or young relatives. Perhaps, too, in terms of the youth related project or role. Finally, some relationships promise parenthood, and require a closer look. The Full Moon serves a purpose. It will show you what is real and not real. And who is real and not real. And it’s never too late to lose your illusion. Or any distortion.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 8-14 September 2014

Sagittarius, take your time with issues relating to your image, personal appearance, name, brand or reputation. No matter how much you may want to race into something very new, from Saturday, do be aware of the domino effect. The dominos which start to hit each other, from this weekend through late October, could produce a really dominant new game in your life (in terms of your Me agenda) next year, and as late as 2016. Thus, be fully conscious of what you are creating in your life, about yourself, for yourself – and where it might take you. This week’s Full Moon and Neptune aspects are also encouraging you to be a realist about your home town, homeland, family, house, apartment or household. Maybe in combination. Reality has not even been in your vocabulary this year, but the time has come to take off the goggles and rub your eyes. That’s some other reality you were inhabiting. Now, look again.


capricorn

Capricorn: 8-14 September 2014

Capricorn, this weekend Mars will move into Sagittarius, and into the Twelfth House of your horoscope which rules the secrets you keep, the confidential matters you guard and the classified matters you cover up. It also rules dodgy and dubious behaviour which you may not even fully realise you are guilty of! Finally, the Twelfth House (at its highest vibration) rules what you do when you are submerged. This may be behind-the-scenes work where you modestly allow others to take the credit. It may also be more spiritual, so it involves what you do when you disappear from view – perhaps even into other realms of consciousness. I am running this long list past you because after Saturday all, or any, of the above will become a white-hot, rapidly evolving issue in your life. And you need to be utterly clear about what you set up, because you will be living with the consequences in a truly inescapable way next year. Moving right along, you also need to look at the internet, the media, publishing or other communication. You’ve drifted off course. Find your anchor. And the sign posts.


aquarius

Aquarius: 8-14 September 2014

Aquarius, the presence of Neptune, Salacia and Chiron in your zone of money, valuables, houses, business interests, charity, apartments – and crucially your value system – has taken you away from what is real this year. In fact, the real world that others know has been utterly removed from your life, so that you seem to have been cruising, drifting and surfing your way through other currents that don’t touch others at all. Now, to extend this nautical metaphor, you must come back to shore. Locate the red flags you lost sight of. Wave to the lifeguard. And next time, read the damn board on the beach! The other interesting thing about your chart now is your group or network – the one involving your friend. It may be Twitter or something really formal, but be conscious of what you create in your life after Saturday. Be particularly wary of conflicts or highly competitive scenarios with your friend, or with this group (or through them). Why? Because if all this tumbles into 2015 and 2016 as well you will be extricating yourself from it with a spade. Don’t dig this hole.


pisces

Pisces: 8-14 September 2014

Pisces, Mars in Sagittarius from this weekend alerts you to situations you can avoid. That is what astrology is all about. It looks as though your career, university course, voluntary role or other position is about to turn up the emotional temperature. And there is precious little tolerance, patience or equanimity in the air. Instead – after Saturday until late October – there is the potential for conflict. Of course you can sidestep this right now, just by being aware of it. Even without conflict, though, Mars could lead you to react in the heat of the moment, or push your way forward without thinking before you act. In all cases, awareness is everything. Just be aware of where your actions might take you next year, and the year after that. The Full Moon in your sign brings things to a head with your name, brand, image, look or reputation. You’ve been confusing others here, or confusing yourself. Time to get real. Oh, the relief.

Your Horoscope September 1 through 7

Astrologer’s Diary

Now this is fascinating. Mercury the media planet enters Libra, the sign that rules equal marriage and civil partnership, on Tuesday 2nd September. This resumes the conversation for the generation born with Pluto and Uranus in Libra. They are on the planet to revolutionise the way governments and churches think about lesbian, gay and transgender people make commitments. Mercury is about to turn retrograde shadow, though, so nobody should actually buy into the September-October ‘decisions’ and ‘rulings’ with any sense of certainty. What is uttered as gospel, decreed by the courts and so on, could easily come unstuck with one computer problem or one flakey decision maker! The other big deal this week is Jupiter in Leo quincunx Pluto in Capricorn on Friday 5th September. You know what’s big business in 2014? Children. Just watch corporations and governments fall over themselves to finally tune children in. Leo is the sign to be associated with women, in particular, who campaign for young people (like J.K.Rowling and Beatrix Potter). As J.K.Rowling clearly uses astrologer, or maybe just an astrologer, you would have to speculate that her Harry Potter empire is about to take a powerful turn in September 2014.

aries

Aries: 1-7 September 2014

Aries, on Friday 5th September, Pluto in Capricorn will form a quincunx to Jupiter in Leo at 11.23am in London. This is rare. It will also empower you to transform some aspect of your career, other calling in life. Someone or something will give you a tremendous new potency, in terms of your job, project, role, course or plans. At the same time, you would be mad not to take full advantage of the sensational opportunity now emerging with the next generation. This applies to babies, children, teenagers or perhaps (depending on your own age) Gen X, Y or Z, born 20 years after you. What or who is on offer now, is quite straightforward. You have so much to gain. An awful lot of Aries people are about to merge ambition, position and mission with parenthood – or in other cases, a mentor/guardian role with much younger people, either through the family, a godparenting role – or a voluntary/paid gig involving the young.


taurus

Taurus: 1-7 September 2014

Taurus, this is a welcome turning point for your travel, internet, foreign, publishing and/or educational agenda. You may feel there are no more substantial changes that could possibly happen, but what is now gathering speed will help you reinvent what matters. In fact, reinvention and relaunch is the theme for the rest of the year, if you can only pursue and persist – and be patient enough to make this (relatively new) thing work in your life. How empowered would you feel? This much – just throw your arms wide open and embrace the possibility. What else is going on now? Well, it’s connected. You’re being thrown something or someone so substantial and special. The family, house, home town, apartment, homeland or household could become so much bigger and better for you. Just say yes. I mean, come on, why on earth would you say no? You can develop a truly meaningful relationship with your people or place.


gemini

Gemini: 1-7 September 2014

Gemini, my aunt (born in May) just enquired about the prospects for her sign this week, and I immediately thought of her ukelele playing. And singing. And the fact that since Jupiter in Leo turned up in July, she has composed and sung a couple of tributes at family weddings and birthdays. Jupiter in Leo works in mysterious ways, Gemini, but it works through words. You may be a professional wordsmith – lots of people born under your sign are. Or maybe you just want to create lyrics, poetry, blogs, scripts, YouTube hits, articles or mimed performance. Jupiter in Leo on Friday, in aspect to powerful Pluto, reminds you that you must pursue what/who is there, to the exclusion of everything else if necessary. You seriously do not wake up in the right time and place like this very often – and words are your thing! What else is going on now? Basically, the house of your chart which Patric Walker believed ruled ‘matters of a joint financial nature’ is transforming in your favour. It’s all terribly new, this chapter with your house, money, flat, possessions or business. But it’s so potent.


cancer

Cancer: 1-7 September 2014

Cancer, the great truth of your sign at the moment is that the more you devote yourself to faking Libra characteristics – like intense teamwork with one other person – the more powerful you become. I suspect you have already made one giant leap in that department in the last few years anyway. You’ve figured out the whole duet or double-act thing, perhaps more than once. And what a marvellous legacy this has left you. What is utterly new now, though, is the aspect from Pluto in Libra’s traditional horoscope house, the Seventh, to the joy planet Jupiter. So take this situation with he or she who matters so much and work it. This includes enemies, rivals and opponents. You’re being given a chance to remake, remodel, reshape that doesn’t come along all that often. Simultaneously, Jupiter is handing you the chance of the year – perhaps of many years – to gain from a financial, property, business or charity solution.


leo

Leo: 1-7 September 2014

Leo, Jupiter in your sign just handed you the best chance in ages to really spruce up your image – maybe change your name or title, eventually, to your total advantage – and certainly to relaunch yourself. I will repeat something I’ve written elsewhere for your sign. No matter if you are taking off a layer and revealing an old model of yourself (one that works so damn well today) or actually adding new, wondrous layers – it’s all creating marvellous change. The only thing you really have to do now is to keep nodding and smiling – and saying ‘Yes’ whenever the story moves on for you. What else gives this week? Pluto is triggered in Capricorn, the sign which rules your devotion to service and duty in the name of your work ethic. Even President Obama has this pattern. I suspect that being a dutiful cog in the machinery is the best thing you could be doing, and you will see why very close to Friday. The world needs Leo cogs!


virgo

Virgo: 1-7 September 2014

Virgo, you have learned (to your advantage) that when you pretend to be a Leo, you become more powerful. More potent. And other advantages come your way. So what does a Leo do, on this planet? Well, she or he is primarily here to guide, mentor, influence and inspire a younger generation. This can happen through life as a parent, godparent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. It can also happen through professional or voluntary commitments to younger people. This week Jupiter in Leo makes his presence felt with a thunderous boom in your horoscope, near Friday 5th September. There may actually be thunder or thunderclap omens around this time to impress you. Anything from an AC/DC symbol to the real thing, with storm clouds, may be the cosmic sign you need. But no matter how it occurs in your life, this wave of change is about owning the legacy of your personality to those born 20 years or more after yourself and realising how much it empowers you. The other story now? You know this one. When you cover things up, or play Mr/Miss Invisible, you gain so much.


libra

Libra: 1-7 September 2014

Libra, on Friday 5th September or very close to it, you can move things forward again with your friend, or the group. The friendship may be old or new. The group may be anything from a professional network, to a sports team. You have every right to be excited and hopeful. What’s been developing lately is perfectly timed in your life. And this hasn’t even really begun yet – what you are seeing is the planted seed. If you cultivate the seeds of friendship or teamwork in September, you will have a stunning harvest by mid 2015. I would describe what happens near Friday as a growth spurt, so be your own life gardener. This person/these people are the award-winning roses; the sensational sunflowers. And some are just bloody enormous marrows. What else am I seeing in your chart now? Well, a parallel story (and just as important) is the massive potential shift you could be welcoming in terms of your place, or people. Your house or home town. Your flat or homeland. Your family or household. Your home girls and home boys. You want empowerment? Take it.


scorpio

Scorpio: 1-7 September 2014

Scorpio, your ruling planet (okay, actually a dwarf planet these days) is Pluto and that instantly gives you a clue about your horoscope this week. Pluto is about the upsizing and downsizing of situations. And when it comes to your way with words – online and in the real world – you have seen so many variations on this theme since 2008 you may feel you’ve seen it all. Astrology always holds just one more surprise, though, and very close to Friday 5th September a stunning quincunx from Pluto to Jupiter suggests you must pursue the person, project or possibility which is so clearly going to give you the potency you deserve as a words person. You may be concerned with lyrics, chapters, articles, blogs, social media, speeches, foreign languages, multimedia – every Scorpio has her/his own medium. The person, project or possibility concerned is handing you the keys to an unbeatable new feeling. And hey, it could last. What is also going to last, for almost another 12 glorious months, is success. Something all-new, all-singing and all-dancing just landed in your life last week. You knew it was worth chasing. You’re so right. Show willing. No, just show massively enthuastic. You have no idea just how amazing this could be, until you try.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 1-7 September 2014

Sagittarius, your ruler Jupiter aligns with Pluto towards the weekend, so you are entering September in the best possible position. A person or situation which slide onto your radar a few months ago recently went to the top of your list. Keep it there, no matter if we are talking about a trip, a relocation, a web venture, a book, a course or workshop – or an aspect of your scientific or spiritual beliefs that has found a good home. In many, many cases a regional or foreign location or local is part of the story for your sign now. So what do you do? It’s so easy with Jupiter. You just hold out your hands, or throw open your arms, and walk towards him, her, them or ‘it’ with an enormous smile. What is also new and also rather intoxicating is the realisation that there is always room for another change with your money, house, business, charity, apartment or possessions. The kind that makes you wake up feeling like King or Queen of the world. You cannot pay for that thrilling feeling of control nor buy it in a catalogue, but your horoscope is handing it to you, be you quids in, or broke.


capricorn

Capricorn: 1-7 September 2014

Capricorn, on Friday 5th September there is a pattern in your horoscope that is rare and welcome. Pluto, the symbol of empowerment and control, aligns with Jupiter, an ancient symbol of growth, expansion, hope for the future and great rewards. I suspect you have already stumbled upon the key to the door that opens the latter. In fact, the person, possibility, project, place or person which has just zoomed into focus, after a nice period of soft focus, is a very big key indeed. What’s through the keyhole? More, more, more – in terms of your house, apartment, money, precious possessions, business assets or general lifestyle and security. How mad would you be, to let this pass you by? This mad (twirls both fingers on opposite signs of the head). Only a loco Capricorn would let a chance like this pass him/her by, given the huge amount you will gain by 2015 if it all works out. And at every juncture, you will be helped by fate to make it work out. What else is showing up in your chart now? Pluto in your own sign, urging you to relaunch yourself yet again. You’ve done this repeatedly since 2008 (with perhaps one really big shot, which worked well) but here’s another variation on the theme. New you. Or new version of you. Yes!


aquarius

Aquarius: 1-7 September 2014

Aquarius, just when you thought you knew exactly who/what would be the main story with your former, current or potential partner – Jupiter surprises you. In the nicest possible way of course. This man or woman is at the heart of a story which has developed well enough for you since July, giving you one chance after another to pursue something so much better. What is now under construction in your horoscope, though, is something rather different but equally welcome. And all you have to really do is just follow the signs. And show willing. Jupiter doesn’t just hurl the solution for your marriage, or the chance for a new relationship, or (insert possibility here) and then deliver it. You have to grab the baseball of fate and put it through the hoop yourself. Bouncing and whooping all the way, like the Harlem Globetrotters circa 1974. The other scenario right now is that you are entwined with an enemy, rival or opponent in some way that is oddly beneficial for you. Again, whoop and bounce. What happens near Friday is a whole new ball game and one that works sublimely for you. Last note on your chart? You have learned so much about staying beneath the radar this year. Go even deeper. Go darker. It’s where the new power is.


pisces

Pisces: 1-7 September 2014

Pisces, there are no random coincidences or accidents in astrology. It’s based on synchronicity – those huge, wow-factor moments when you feel as if the universe is actually programming things in a divinely intelligent way. And the word of the week is divine. Because what has been happening with your old friend, your social media, your new friend – or most importantly, The Group – is meant to be right now. It is meant to be because you need to know what it feels like to find power and potency through a very particular kind of relationship. It has to be light, airy, breezy – and it utterly suits the internet, which is so impersonal, yet so rich in networks and friendships. As you will see very close to Friday 5th September, nothing gives you the steering wheel like the right kind of team, tribe or chum. What else is going on now? Jupiter in Leo has been so subtle in terms of his steadily growing impact on your daily workload and lifestyle, which of course incorporates your physical wellbeing. He’s been subtle but he’s not a slacker. If you go back, back, back all the way to July and beyond you will see how all the jigsaw pieces were being put on the board. No more puzzles. A brilliant future waits, if you are prepared to push this chance.

Your Horoscope August 25 through 31

Astrologer’s Diary

First up, it was interesting to see just how accurate the astrology was about royal romance in the air last week, as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction in the regal sign of Leo on Monday 18th August, produced these headlines in The Express: PRINCE HARRY’S EX CHELSY DAVY SET TO MARRY HER SOCIETY JEWELLER BOYFRIEND. If The Express is right, the once-and-for-all elimination of Chelsy Davy from Prince Harry’s little black book, puts the focus on another ex, Cressida Bonas, as well as his new girlfriend, model Camilla Thurlow. And heavens above, Kate Middleton has invited both women to Harry’s 30th birthday party at Kensington Palace…What about the final week of August, though? How is the global horoscope looking? Monday 25th August is dramatic, with a New Moon at 2 Virgo 18 at 3.12pm in London, followed by a Mars-Saturn conjunction just a few hours later at 8.29pm. Unfortunately Scorpio is the sign associated with sex and money (and money and sex) and that conjunction is ominous. About thirty years ago, when Saturn was last in Scorpio, the planet was dealing with the HIV virus and AIDS and the implications for the health insurance and life insurance industries. Right now, the focus has switched to paedophiles and the ‘business’ of child and pre-adult sexual abuse. It doesn’t matter if it’s celebrities and politicians in Britain, or the Catholic church in Australia, that Mars-Saturn conjunction is a judgement call and a wake-up call. It is possible the United States will also become woven into this general worldwide reality check about the sexual exploitation of children and pre-adults, near 25th August.

Aries: 25-31 August 2014

 

Your ruling planet Mars forms a conjunction with Saturn on Monday 25th August at 8.20pm in London (adjust for your time zone and town). This is one of the last ‘moments of truth’ you will have to put up with in connection with your money, company, business, house, flat, possessions or charity. Why so? Because after Christmas Saturn will have left your cash, security and lifestyle zone and he will not be back for 29 years. In the meantime there is a lot you can do. No matter how famous you are for your assertiveness, your competitiveness, your remarkable speed and energy, there is sometimes a lot to be said for stepping back from a situation and analysing it, before applying some long-term tactics. To put it a more old-fashioned way; do not make a difficult situation worse. The New Moon, also on Monday, falls in Virgo, the sign which rules your daily workload and your relationship with your own body. You can expect the beginning of a new phase or chapter from this point forward. In fact, as August turns into September, the continued emphasis on the minutiae of your everyday existence, and your work ethic – not to mention your physical condition and wellbeing – will clear up a great deal. One of the issues all this immediately raises for you is the secrets that you keep, or the unseen roles you play. You will be given great insight into the way the situation has built up in 2014, in the weeks ahead. No matter how uncomfortable this occasionally is, you must take an objective view of the need for some boundaries, to contain and control what is so often threatening to become chaotic, confusing or confused. The fact that others simply do not see, know or remotely fathom this aspect of yourself, of your life, has made it more difficult for you to rein anything in, as there is simply nobody around to do that. Nevertheless, September as a whole will enlighten you. New rules for this secret or invisible world will follow.

 

 


taurus

Taurus: 25-31 August 2014

 

A high percentage of Taurus people must now deal with the realities of marriage, separation, divorce or de facto relationships – but in the context of pregnancy, step-parenthood, child custody or possibly adult children. If this sounds like you, then very close to Monday 25th August when we have two unusual planetary patterns, the decision you have needed to make for months will be looming. Try to remove all the potential for negativity from the situation. No matter how stuck, slow or mired in fear the situation may feel now (all trademarks of a Saturn cycle) by Christmas that atmosphere will vanish. Ask yourself what you would do, were certain heavy individuals, or heavy atmospheres, no longer an issue. In other cases, you may be single and free of both relationships or children, yet this week begs answers about both. Finding the right pace is crucial. If you do not move at all, you remain stuck. However, if you push too hard and fast, you could be complicating a situation which is already rather loaded in your life. More than anything else you need a set of tactics – psychological, emotional, practical or just sexual – which will get you through the remaining four months of this obstacle course. The other issue to bear in mind for September is the chemistry of friendship, or perhaps the alchemy between people in a group. This may be soaked in alcohol or drugs for some Taurus people. Neptune has a way of producing that! Alternatively the rather fuzzy, hazy, clouded atmosphere is entirely down to the spectacular lack of boundaries that exist between you and your friend, or within the network itself. Even though you are unlikely to clap your hands and jump for joy at what goes down over the next few weeks, it should be welcomed on another level. Why? Because you will see what you did not see before, and a decision is so overdue.

 


gemini

Gemini: 25-31 August 2014

 

This is a decisive New Moon in the detail-conscious, practical sign of Virgo and it will point you in a new direction with your family, your house, your flat, your home town, your household or your homeland for some time to come. Look up and you will see it overhead as the week begins; make a wish, or set an intention – however you want to phrase it – and watch your new beginning take hold. It’s almost a given that if what you desire, also meets the hopes, dreams and wishes of others, it becomes so much easier to manifest. This applies to property ladders as much as it does to your relatives. The issue of your lifestyle as a whole is more complex. The fact remains that Saturn is still in Scorpio, and thus the planet associated with waiting games, loaded atmospheres, heavy issues and unavoidable realities is still having a daily impact. This may be about your work ethic or your working life. It may be about your body, and specifically the mind, body and spirit connection. The key to this week, though, and in fact the next four months as a whole, is to refuse to go in too hard – or move too fast. And also, perhaps, not to just respond in the heat of the moment if you are being provoked or pushed. If ever there was a moment for a methodical bit of Gemini planning, this is it. Your sign is ruled by Mercury the Messenger of the Gods and is associated with clever minds and whirring brain cells. You need a strategy and you will thank yourself for having formulated it this week. The question of your work ethic and daily tasks and chores (no matter if you are a full-time professional, student or volunteer) also brings in the theme for September, which is reality checks. For months now there has been nothing remotely real or ordinary about your goals and ambitions, or the position you hold. What happens near Friday 29th August is the first of many reminders to plant your feet on solid earth, rather than continue to drift, ebb and flow with one current of non-reality after another. The sooner you do this the better; there is a Full Moon on Tuesday 9th September to sort things out, in any case. Step well away from the project, plan, role or position and try to identify at what point the boundary creep began with others, and what you can do to contain and control what slips and slides like the ocean tides.

 


cancer

Cancer: 25-31 August 2014

 

Once Mars changes signs close to Saturday 13th September, you will no longer be dealing with the potential for emotional heat with (or surrounding) your children. This also applies to younger relatives and to any relationship where future pregnancy, adoption, child custody or step-parenting is part of the story. Knowing that you only have around three more weeks of tension to deal with, either in yourself, or in others, should make it easier for you to strategise. You very much need tactics at the moment, and you can double that message if your former, current or potential partner is Cancer or Taurus. No matter what signs are involved, no matter how heavy and intractable a situation feels, remember that the toughest cycle in 29 years will end at Christmas. If you are free of either relationship baggage or children, then the Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August is about broader questions. A voluntary or non-profit role involving younger people may be one example of this. Another might be your position as a godmother or godfather. Then there are issues about the next generation, full stop – those born 20 years or more after you, who inherit the  legacy of your personality. The astrological advice is similar. You need tactics. A strategy. You also need to remember that the heat will disappear near 13th September and the relentless heaviness of the atmosphere will lift completely near Christmas. This week also sees a new beginning involving the internet, media, publishing, your computer, your words, your voice or your images. Really push this out there into the world. New technology in your life, like a phone or laptop, may be part of the story. A bigger concern, long-term is the potential for confusion that surrounds your publishing, internet, academic, educational, travel or foreign agenda. What happens near Friday’s Sun-Neptune opposition will draw your attention to this. How on earth did you drift out this far? It doesn’t really matter; all that is required is the willingness to haul yourself back again. Unless you begin to do this consciously, containing and controlling things, September will be hard work.

 


leo

Leo: 25-31 August 2014

 

You must now live in the real world where your house, family, flat, home town, household or homeland is concerned. The Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August at 8.20pm in London (adjust for your time zone) is a reminder to weigh your words and actions very carefully. Believe it or not Leo, there will come a time (just near Christmas Day, when Saturn finally leaves your house of home and clan) when the atmosphere lightens and your people, or your place, really starts to feel like something that’s easy to return to – not always a relentless obstacle course. Until that point, though, you must not buy into a needless conflict situation, nor act so impulsively that you complicate something regarding your house, flat, family, household, homeland or home town which was already hard enough work in the first place! The final comment about your week may concern the flat or apartment on a financial level, or perhaps just your cashflow, business, charity, possessions or company. The New Moon on Monday 25th August at 3.12pm in London makes it clear that a new beginning is coming. Try to make it a clear one. The Sun-Neptune opposition on Friday 29th August at 3.32pm urges you to step back from your situation and understand just how crucial it is to remain anchored, so that you do not end up floating right out of your depth. That New Moon is worth a wish. Wishing for reality and normality will stop you getting in over your head. Beyond mere wishes, though, when your ruler the Sun clashes with Neptune, it is time to understand that even Her Majesty the Queen had to set a budget a few years ago; even she had to confront tax! Queen Elizabeth II is a Taurus, of course (her own mother was the Leo) but she is a symbol for you right now. The sooner you can begin redrawing the financial, business, property or charity landscape, the better. Time to rope in and rein in anything which is all over the place.

 


virgo

Virgo: 25-31 August 2014

The New Moon in Virgo, your own sign, on Monday 25th August at 3.12pm (London time) will have a personal impact on you, if your birthday falls on August 24, 25 or 26 – and you can expect a new beginning in terms of your name, face, image, shape, style or profile. No matter when your birthday falls, either in August or September, there will be a new layer added to your persona this week, or perhaps an old layer taken off. It’s all good. A New Moon in your sign is always good – especially when there is nothing else to complicate it. You must step back from your perception of a former, current or potential partner, though. And perhaps an enemy, opponent or rival. No matter how uncomfortable it may feel near Friday 29th August, and throughout September as a whole, do use every moment of truth, to become more detached and realistic about this person. It would appear that you have been using him, her (or just the whole situation) as an escape from the real world, or a way to avoid or evade other basic facts of life. It takes great insight to be able to see this, when you are in such a foggy Neptune cycle, but from Friday onwards, the windscreen wipers will be at work and little by little, even though you may not particularly love the process, you will see a clear view of who and what is actually there. What else is going on this week? Well, you have had easier times in terms of the internet, the media, publishing, your computer, your phone, language, hearing and all other communication issues. There is no doubt at all that this situation is about timing, though. Within three weeks the tension will go. And by Christmas, the heaviness will lift. Knowing that, you can craft a more relaxed strategy. Tactics and methodical, Virgo-style planning will get you through this a lot better than in-the-moment flash decisions.


libra

Libra: 25-31 August 2014

Libra, what would you do about your money, house, flat, business, possessions or charity if you knew that any potential for conflict or friction would disappear on Saturday 13th September? And that all the weight in the atmosphere; all the heaviness and stuckness; would end on Tuesday 23rd December? This is exactly what your horoscope is promising, and it could make all the difference to the way you plot and plan, over the next few days. The conjunction between Mars and Saturn on Monday 25th August is hardly welcome by anybody. For you, though, it should become an excuse to go back to the drawing board if necessary, or even to begin a whole strategy. Like all Second House transits of your solar chart, this one is teaching you about your values. It is hammering home the precious qualities of people, possessions, properties or passions which you are gradually growing to realise are priceless to you. In 2015 and beyond, when at last life is back to normal and the pressure is off, you will come to value all these things so much more as a result, and get more from them. The most spiritual manifestation of this famously difficult financial cycle is the appreciation of soul commodities like integrity, humanitarianism, forgiveness, compassion, ethics, principles and so on – none of which can be bought and sold on Wall Street. Nevertheless, you will be glad to know you only have four more months of this cycle left, apart from a brief flashback in the middle of 2015. What else is going on now? A New Moon on Monday, to quote Duran Duran, which will launch you in a new direction in terms of the secrets you keep, or the invisible roles you play behind the scenes. We also have a Sun-Neptune opposition on Friday which lets you know what September will be about; primarily the need to stand back from your daily workload and your relationship with your body, and get a better view. Everything has been distorted in such a subtle way, and for so many months, that you are most unlikely to be totally clear on things. What the next few weeks will do, is give you eyes to see. Rather like adjusting to a new prescription with glasses or contact lenses, it may be too much at first. It may be hard to adjust. By October, though, your new vision will have triggered big changes.


scorpio

Scorpio: 25-31 August 2014

Scorpio, after Friday 29th August you will be in a position to fathom the realities about (or for) your children in a much more practical and clear-sighted way. This also applies to young relatives or godchildren. It most certainly applies to sexual relationships where pregnancy, adoption or step-parenting are possible outcomes. Finally, you may be experiencing this cycle through the world of babies, children or pre-adults on a professional level, or perhaps through a non-profit project. So what can you expect from September? Basically, the chance to drop anchor and even to get back onto dry land. You may not even be aware of just how unreal, literally, your life has become in relation to the next generation and all the issues it raises. This Neptune cycle can be subtle; it takes a few pointed wake-up calls to realise just how out of your depth you have swum, or how far you have drifted from the real world. Friday 29th August is the beginning of a necessary shift when you must do all it takes to keep it real (or get back to reality) with, or through, the babies, children or young adults who surround you, no matter if the connection is personal, professional or voluntary. Some other changes this week include the fresh start you are making with a friend or group. This is entirely welcome; it feels like the rebirth of an old friendship, the birth of a new friendship, or either the reinvigoration of an existing group commitment, or the start of a fresh one. I have left the headlines about Mars and Saturn in Scorpio until last, if only because it’s always rather onerous to write about these two horoscope factors! Yet there is nothing to fear about matters affecting your reputation, profile, style, shape, face and brand. By Christmas there will be relief and release. And even sooner, by September 13th any heat or tension surrounding the ‘me’ agenda will also be gone. So – knowing that – how might you cleverly and adroitly manage the situation you are dealing with, near Monday 25th?


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 25-31 August 2014

Sagittarius, the hard part about a Twelfth House Saturn transit is the fact that you cannot confide in anyone. It is like carrying the weight on your shoulders entirely alone, and that is very difficult. Why is this so solitary for you? Perhaps because it concerns a very great secret that you cannot share, not even with your best friend. Alternatively, the load you are dealing with concerns a part you are playing behind the scenes, that you are utterly aware of all the time – yet nobody else is! The good news is, in around three weeks’ time any tension associated with this secret or invisible role will vanish. And best of all, very close to your birthday, you will either see the secret wiped off the agenda; or it may remain, yet no longer bother you in any way at all. This also applies to a part you are playing without credit or recognition; near your birthday it will either end, or it may go on, yet in a way that does not concern you whatsoever. Moving through your horoscope this week we also find a New Moon in your sector of ambition, social status, success and achievement. Make a wish when you see that moon over your head, but better still, make some practical moves. Remember your luck is well and truly in, with any academic, educational, publishing, foreign, travel or internet-related matters. Perhaps you can merge your ambition with your luck, this week. The weekend approaches with a reminder that September is about long-overdue reality checks. Even though you could wish for an easier ride, you cannot complain about the long-term results of September’s enforced decisions about your family, house, home town, homeland, flat or household. The reality is, you have simply not understood how far from reality you have drifted. Hauling yourself back to the real world may feel uncomfortable for a few weeks, but you will end up blessing it.


capricorn

Capricorn: 25-31 August 2014

Capricorn, the New Moon which begins the week will launch a new phase for you as a traveller, student, teacher, internet creator, world citizen, publisher or writer. This is a straightforward New Moon in the detail-conscious and methodical sign of Virgo, so once you know what your list should contain, begin ticking the boxes. The other obvious issue near Monday concerns your ruling planet Saturn and his conjunction to Mars, in Scorpio, the sign which rules your social life, social media, old friendships and group commitments. It is very important that you do not buy into a situation where people act, rather than think. If you succumb, you could be stuck with the energy-suck for three more weeks. Undoubtedly, this is a difficult atmosphere to deal with. It may be specific friends or social acquaintances; it may be the dynamics of a team or association; it may be the hideous realities of Facebook. If a Mars-Saturn conjunction calls for anything, though, it calls for great timing. Remember, the heat won’t be there beyond 13th September. And that heavy, loaded atmosphere will be gone by Christmas Day. Knowing that, how might you now proceed? Because you’re sure as hell going to need some very well-crafted strategies about this friend, this frenemy – or this network. The only other thing to say about your chart right now is that you are up for a few weeks of reality checks about the internet, your phone, your computer, the media, publishing and all mediums for your ‘voice’ in all its forms. You will be woken up again and again, but it’s all to the good. Had you continued without any checks whatsoever, you might have drifted so far out, and so far away, that you may have gone right in over your head. Of course the internet in particular is an alternative reality but it may be time you extracted yourself from it, Capricorn.


aquarius

Aquarius: 25-31 August 2014

Aquarius, if the Mars-Saturn conjunction on Monday 25th August also happens to square your natal Sun, then this career issue is personal and it’s momentous. In all other cases, you certainly do have realities to deal with, in terms of your ambition, position and mission – yet no matter when your birthday falls, there are ways of coping. The first general rule with both these planets is to get the pace and timing right. If you lurch into action, that would be a mistake. If you are stuck fast (almost paralysed, like a possum in the headlights of a car) then that is also not useful. Somewhere between leaping into gear, and grinding your gears, you have to find the right way to push forward. It may help to know that the burden you feel will be gone at Christmas. And it may also help to know that the potential for conflict disappears in about three weeks. Now, think like a professional headhunter; a career advisor; a human resources manager. Then (perhaps) go beyond immediate questions about your chosen industry, field or role – and look at the broader questions of what success means to you. What does it mean to be a successful human being in 2014? Moving into other areas of your chart, the Virgo-Pisces axis, which rules your money, house, business, company, flat, charity and possessions is well and truly triggered. This goes into September, too, and you can expect a few weeks of intense questioning and challenges, which is massively overdue. Begin with the idea that what you own, earn or owe can certainly offer you an escape or outlet; you deserve that as much as anyone. If things have reached a point where they are so confused or confusing that the escapism is being replaced by a feeling of uncertainty or overwhelm, though, then use the next few weeks to contain and control what is going on. And to see clear at last.


pisces

Pisces: 25-31 August 2014

Pisces, your ruler Neptune is opposed by the Sun at the end of the week. You tend to cleave towards whatever Neptune offers, because you are an escape artist and define yourself by your various ways of avoiding the real world or evading reality. This is why so many Pisces people (especially the most brilliant and famous of your kind) are poets, film-makers, painters, actors and so on. At the moment, Neptune is in Pisces, your own zodiac sign, and the escape from normal, ordinary, mundane reality is actually yourself. You have been using your own face, name, shape, style, face and persona as the way out, and the way through, and although it probably began in quite an interesting and rewarding way, your horoscope suggests you must now rein things in. From this weekend, through to October, you must find a way to limit and control things, and unless you do this willingly, it may be that one incident after another will pull you up short, until you are forced to get real about the non-real (and the non-real, in this case, is you, you, you). What else is going on at the moment? The New Moon in Virgo suggests a brand new phase with (or for) your husband, wife, potential lover, or ex-partner. This also applies to work partners; past, present or future. And the Seventh House is also about enemies, rivals and opponents. What kind of new phase awaits? An entirely organic, natural, welcome one which has a feeling of rightness about it. The real challenge this week is well-known to you. How do you summon up yet more energy to deal with your travel, foreign, publishing or educational agenda? It may help to realise that any risk of conflict will vanish in about three weeks. And by the end of December you will have relief and release, from the toughest cycle in 29 years. Until then, use that famous Pisces ability to read hearts and minds. Your sixth sense is extremely useful in situations like this and if your antennae quiver and tell you that someone/something could be a problem, you are no doubt correct. Using intuition and your experiences in 2013 in particular, plot and plan your moves and neither stall, nor accelerate. Just drive.
