Astrologer’s Diary

If you want to know how Mercury Retrograde will manifest right through early November, look no further than Ebola checks at airports. Beyond that, of course, we are up for fairly standard Mercury effects; product recall is typical, so are faults with new technology launches (although Apple continually ignores this cycle and usually ends up paying the price!) Are you seeing Mercury Retrograde effects all around you? Is advertising being pulled, or labelling changed? Did you just connect to a new ISP only to find your mobile broadband isn’t working? People often ask what the point of this cycle is. Basically, it’s to force us to sit on our hands and do nothing. To contemplate. To mull over things, then decide later.

aries

Aries: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

You no doubt have a couple of deadlines or events constantly in your mind, and you know the outcome will not only draw a line under your 2014 budget, income, business, property or charity – it will also confirm how 2015 will be. The reason for these deadlines or forthcoming diary dates is practical, of course, but in astrological terms, it is because you are facing down an eclipse this week, the completion of Mercury Retrograde in November – and finally the departure of Saturn from an area of your chart affecting your finances, house, company, flat, possessions or charity. So far so good, but you must time it right. To jump to conclusions on the Thursday eclipse would be a mistake, as your visibility is low; the clarity is not there; something is being held from you, or is yet to be revealed later on. In addition, if you dive into paperwork, discussions or meetings you may well find the last gasp of Mercury Retrograde catches you. In a perfect world you would be ready to talk, sign or accept signatures after 10th November. If this is impossible, though, at least make allowances for alterations, delays, technical errors or u-turns before that date. The final 20 days of November and the entire month of December will be devoted to a clean break with the past year or two. You need to sign off on something (or someone) and take a mental load off. More importantly, it’s time to think about 2015 and beyond in a completely different way. History will not repeat. You only get one Saturn cycle in your house of money, and yours is nearly over. Just wait a bit, first.


taurus

Taurus: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

Saturn cycles tend to freeze time. They get in the way of the natural, healthy flow of things and slow everything down. They also present you with unique challenges; you should be glad they are unique too, because after 2013 and 2014, you simply do not want to go through certain chapters again. Your former, current or potential partner may be at the heart of some of this. In other cases it is your sworn enemy, rival or opponent. Perhaps you have experienced a little of both, yet by this stage in the cycle, it is probably just one face and name which concerns you most. No matter how much it may feel as if you should pass judgements or draw conclusions about this person, especially near Thursday’s eclipse, try not to do so. An eclipse does what it says on the packet; it covers things up in an unnatural, unusual way. As Mercury is also completing his retrograde cycle you may be better off waiting to get all the facts in, before you make a judgement call. The final 20 days of November, and all of December, will move things along with some finality for you. In fact, as Christmas draws closer, it looks as though an ultimate decision may well end what has been a very heavy load to carry. In a few cases, it is your interior response which lifts the burden. In other words, nothing will actually change with, or about this person in your life – yet on the inside, you will feel the weight lifting. For the majority of Taurus people, though, this is about closure. No wonder you want to hurry the whole thing up, yet a wait-and-see policy may serve you better this week.


gemini

Gemini: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

While your ruling planet Mercury is still completing his lengthy retrograde cycle, you do need to hold your horses. At any other time this year, you would be able to proceed full-tilt into discussions, paperwork or information-gathering, in the hopes that you could get your daily workload or body on track. Instead, it may not be until early November that you can say you know exactly where you stand. The partial solar eclipse on Thursday 23rd October is another reason to take your time. This rather peculiar astronomical event is also a striking astrological motif; it lets you know the natural order of things has been disrupted. Also, strangely, you may not even know why – until much later on. For this reason, you may prefer to let a few more wheels spin around before you call judgement on the situation now affecting your working life or your body so much. In actual fact, you do not have too much longer to wait, once you are near the middle of November. From that point forward until Christmas, you are in the very last stage of the most notoriously challenging cycle in 29 years. What happened to you in 2013 in terms of your lifestyle, physical condition or professional commitments was a life lesson you would have given anything to avoid. This year has been better, but you must still be longing for the day when you can get up and start your day without automatically having to ring-fence particular worries about your job or your body! (If you don’t work, of course your ‘job’ is your studies or your volunteer role). The good news is, Saturn’s departure from Scorpio as the Christmas lights go up, is also a green light. An easier 2015 is close.


cancer

Cancer: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

In many ways the next few weeks is the answering call to 2013 and the difficult choices you had to make. Saturn’s arrival in the Fifth House of your solar chart gave you very few options where your children, young relatives or godchildren were concerned. If they were not an issue, then the next (younger) generation in a work or personal context certainly was. Then there are issues about fertility, stepchildren, adoption, termination or your biological clock which may linger still. In short, the challenges you have faced since Saturn changed signs to Scorpio have been entirely about the generations which succeed you, and the way you feel about leaving some kind of legacy to them. This week picks up the thread, as your ruler the Moon is involved in a partial solar eclipse on Thursday 23rd October, preceding a chain of crucial patterns in your chart which will end this cycle for good. Fair enough; it is time that you got on with this intensely personal part of your life without automatically having to field anxieties or put up with situations which never seem to get any easier! The key to an easy exit from the most difficult cycle in 29 years is not to try and rush things now. In fact, you are not being shown the full story. The eclipse blots out the entire truth and reality and it would be a mistake to judge too soon. Mercury has also been retrograding through the same zone of your chart, and there is still some of the tapestry to piece back together. Under these circumstances, you would hardly want to call anything final at the moment. From mid-November, though, wheels turn firmly and in the right direction at last. You need closure. You need to draw a line under one episode, and prepare for a new story which will be a great deal more comfortable and easy for you, than what you put up with in the last two years (and especially in 2013).


leo

Leo: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

The partial solar eclipse on Thursday 23rd October falls in Scorpio. Normally this would mean a straightforward new beginning with your family, household, flat, home town, house or homeland. Instead, you will not be shown the full story – yet. On the same day Venus, the planet of co-operation and paired-up collaboration also enters Scorpio, so although you do have a much closer two-way street ahead of you (in terms of your place, or your people) you also have low visibility. In addition to this, Mercury needs to complete his retrograde shadow cycle, also in Scorpio, and this will not be over until 10th November. Perhaps adopting a wait-and-see policy is best, but do hang onto your end of the see-saw with this crucial person who is sharing your property, family, household or home town pathway. If you can make allowances for backwards-and-forwards progress for the next two weeks, with the usual communication failures or technical problems, you will still end up ready for a final decision later. It seems likely to be dramatic. In fact, you might say that November-December is about signing off from the one issue which has weighed you down (and dragged in pace) for so long. Believe it or not, by January you will be able to come home to wherever you belong, without automatically having to deal with the weight on one shoulder. And you will be able to take your place within the family circle or household in a lighter, easier way.


virgo

Virgo: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

There was a time when you could think about the internet, the media, publishing, your computer, your phone or other communication central concerns – without furrowing your brow. Not only do you still have a hard memory to bear from 2013, you also now have some concerns about the future, created all too quickly this year. No wonder you want to turn some wheels and move beyond this – no matter if it is closure on the last 24 months or some kind of sturdy management of a future issue you don’t want. Normally, one might look at your horoscope this week and say ‘Go right ahead’ – but we have an eclipse blocking your view – and also your ruler Mercury is still completing his retrograde cycle. In actual fact, you are very near the end of this phase in your life. You have lived with constant challenges and concerns – and bugbears – for so long, it may seem bordering on the occult that you should ever be able to go online, write, publish, speak, use computers and so on – without having to stoop a little. The stopping will end at Christmas, though, when either the person, project, organisation or situation disappears for good – or more curiously, it remains, but you are no longer affected. In all cases to get there from here, you need to slow down this week. If you plunge into massive decisions or sweeping action on this eclipse, and also while Mercury is still completing his loop, you could thwart your own progress. The wrapping-up you need to do will happen in earnest from mid-November and by the time Father Christmas and his reindeer are en route from the North Pole, your issues are basically over. To try and race to the finishing line now would actually be to entertain more delays, changes or u-turns. Worth a thought.


libra

Libra: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

It is quite understandable that you should want to plunge into the paperwork or discussion, or do some serious fact-finding. This is your money, house or flat after all. This is your business, charity or your precious possessions. In a week like this, though, when precious little is available or visible, you may want to give yourself a clear fortnight before you are finally in a position to gather your facts and line up your numbers in a row. Apart from anything else, the Mercury Retograde cycle is yet to complete. The clue is in the name – Mercury rules merchants, and merchandise and also the markets. Given that the entire world will be in a kind of Gordian knot as October ends, economically or in the markets – perhaps you will have your own trickle-down effect to deal with. Even if your budget is based on ceramic containers (the piggy-bank on the fridge) or Saturday car-boot markets, you may still be dealing with u-turns, waiting games, hitches or glitches until mid-November is well within sight. Naturally you only long to be free of a particular situation, person or organisation – or at least free of caring. You will be relived to know the end is now in sight. In fact, a great many people born under your sign already know this; there is a wrap-up process by January or maybe the start of a new arrangement. You have so much to look forward to, Libra, as 2015 will be such a relief after the financial, business, property or other marketplace realities of late 2012, 2013 (a truly difficult year) and 2014 itself. In the meantime you may want to end the cycle with less angst by studiously avoiding any snap judgements or rapid swipes this week. This Saturn phase took you a long time to get into; it’s worth taking a good few weeks to climb out of it.


scorpio

Scorpio: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Your name has been more of a chewy affair, though, these last two years. Saturn has been lodged in Scorpio, your own sign, which rules your own label, brand, Google listing and Twitter moniker. In 20th century astrology, to have Saturn in your own sign put the emphasis on your good standing; your reputation. Now, with so much activity in Scorpio, you must feel as if at last you can put something to rest, or at least replace the old with the new for 2015. Not only an eclipse, but also Venus, suggests a shift of gears this week. Just make sure you know the road rules with eclipses. They conceal, rather than reveal. They are peculiar and unusual. Far from being a new beginning, there is something about this apparent fresh start for your reputation or name which is partly hidden, and yet to be fully disclosed. Bear that in mind as you proceed. It may be business cards, a website or just your name on paper somewhere, but there are better times to pass dramatic judgements about your Me agenda or swing into motion on your biggest priorities. This is also apparent because of Mercury’s long retrograde transit through Scorpio – again, your sign, your name. In a very few cases the issue has not been your image, it has been your personal appearance; the way you dress, the way you physically appear. Again, nobody really wants to see Saturn loitering in this zone of their chart for as long as you have endured. As Christmas approaches it will become very clear to you that either the issue is going away, or you no longer care about it. This also applies to your name, online and in the real world too. This week may seem to you like part of the long goodbye to this cycle; a week in which you can be proactive and pursue solutions or a new chapter. In fact, it is rather misleading as the emotions and intentions will be there, but not the framework you require. That comes later, from mid-November. Treat this week as a chance for soul-searching and note taking, but that is all.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

You have really lasted the distance with this Saturn cycle, which has given so many people born under your sign a very difficult secret to keep, with all the guilt and inner torment that goes with the territory. In other cases, what you have been hiding from others is not so much a secret, as yourself – plain and simple. A very great part of you has been submerged, like the greater part of an iceberg, and it has felt just as cold and hard as that – not a journey you particularly want to repeat. The Twelfth House of your solar chart is where Saturn has lodged himself since late 2012 and now he is preparing to move on. Whatever has been classified or confidential in your life has been really hard work. Whatever has been a state secret has been a heavy load to carry. Whatever you did (even) behind the scenes, hidden firmly behind other faces or names, has dragged on. Quite naturally you want to know when it’s going to end, and how. And your instincts are telling you that this week is part of the process. The only issue is the fact that part of the jigsaw is still missing. The picture is not complete. This is a function of the eclipse, when there is heavy coverage in the sky, but also a rather sustained cover-up job by the universe, where it affects you most – with your secrets, your classified information, your confidential projects or your desperately private concerns. This is the stuff of your soul, Sagittarius, and you will find it becomes far easier after mid-November when Mercury is finally back on track, after weeks of retrograde motion. By then the Sun in Scorpio will also be moving on, far away from the eclipse with all its concealment this week. Next year will feel very different to the last two years. You went through a great deal, especially in 2013, when you learned a difficult lesson that others have learned before you, but no doubt never shared publicly. Now, you must hang on just a little bit longer, wait for things to clear, and for all the information and knowledge you need to be firmly in your hands. After that, 2015 starts calling.


capricorn

Capricorn: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

By rights, you should be pursuing issues involving the group (that team, club, network or tribe which challenges you every time you think about it). Alternatively the issue has not been a circle of people, but a particular friend; again, it is hard to think about this person without automatically wincing on the inside! At this time of year, with a New Moon and also the arrival of Venus into this sector of your chart, it would be usually be a brand new month of momentum and determination to either eradicate the issue, or at least to no longer be so affected by it. Instead, we have a clouded picture which you must not trust; not for a single minute. What appears to be a fresh start or change in direction on the eclipse, this Thursday 23rd October, should actually be regarded as ‘to be continued’ and preferably taking into account ‘more to be revealed, next episode.’ This is not just the eclipse at work; Mercury is also completing his loop through the zone of your chart which rules groups of all kinds, and of course any friends involved with those groups. If you can wait for another fortnight a great deal more will become known. From that point on, the second half of November and December as a whole will resolve more in six weeks, than you have seen in six months. For a simple life, though, you may prefer to wait and watch, until at least 10th November, before you leap into action or draw sweeping conclusions. By January? Expect relief and release.


aquarius

Aquarius: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

It appears as if your boss, colleague, employee or client (perhaps two from that list) has been a deep source of concern this year. And beyond that, you are still not completely recovered from an episode in late 2012 or 2013 which pulled you up short, in terms of the realities of your chosen profession, field, course, business or industry. Of all the Saturn cycles which are the toughest to deal with, Saturn in your Tenth House is one of the most notorious, because it strikes at the heart of your biggest ambitions, and also your most important position in life. As the cycle slowly draws to a close (it will be history by Christmas) you are about to hit a very intense, concentrated short burst of decision-making and also decisive events. The trick is good timing, though. Despite the eclipse this week, and the arrival of Venus at the top of your chart, there is no real reason to rush a choice or race to a conclusion. It may well be that the end of the year will coincide with departures or arrivals on the work front, or where university or volunteering is concerned. It may quite naturally see the end of some projects and plans, and the commencement of others. All of this momentum is back-announced this week, but there is a caveat; you will not be shown the full and complete story. This is very natural on an eclipse; there is always something missing. More to the point, Mercury has been retrograding through this same zone of your chart, so you have hardly had the good communication and information flow you need. If you can possibly wait until mid November to allow all the pieces to fall into place you will avoid calling the shots when you can’t see all the things you need to see. This will save you time and energy later; it may even help you avoid something far more difficult. Try to keep your eyes on Christmas, with a view to using the next week or two to ponder the past; peruse the future; roll around your options. Later (much later) the decision works.


pisces

Pisces: 20th - 26th OCTOBER

The Ninth House of your horoscope was associated with long sea voyages centuries ago. In the 20th century it was linked to hot air balloons. In the 21st century we associate it with the internet (instant global travel in the mind) and of course, with the 24- hour world we all inhabit, connected by airlines, e-mail and rolling Twitter feeds. You would hope for a life where your connections with European, Australasian or American faces was easy as a result; instead many Pisces people have been labouring with a particularly different regional or international connection. You may want to get the whole thing over and done with this week, with a view to drawing a line under 2014, but please be aware that an eclipse is obscuring your vision of the full story and the Mercury Retrograde cycle has also resulted in patchy information and an incomplete narrative. Wait until at least 10th November to find out where you actually stand. Beyond travel and foreign or regional connections, the Ninth House of your horoscope is also associated with study and teaching (both on a formal and informal level) and publishing, no matter if it is your blog or a book. This may also be where you long to wrap something up, no matter if you desire to replace a problem with a solution or just move on to new things in 2015. If only life was that simple! Again, your issue is the eclipse twinned with the end of a very long Mercury Retrograde cycle, when although the intentions and feelings may be strong on your part, the environment is just out of kilter. You can’t see enough and you don’t know enough (yet) to make a really decisive judgement call. Or – you could try – but you may find you are beset by delays, u-turns or even a complete return to the drawing board by next month. There is a certain inevitability about what is coming up for you next, Pisces. Christmas Day really will feel like Christmas, in the sense that something new and easier is coming, or something rather old, stuck and difficult can be farewelled. You simply will not travel, use the web, network with other regions and nationalities, write, publish, study or teach in the same way next year. You and your life will be lighter, brighter, more relaxed, more open, more experimental. Given that this happy state of affairs is inevitable, maybe you can wait a bit longer to fix certain details?

Your Horoscope 13th through 19th October

Astrologer’s Diary

As you read last week, the eclipse in Libra (the sign which rules equality and marriage – and thus equal marriage) made some waves, even as many U.S. states appeared to be embracing the change. NBC News reported Evangelical Christians were issuing warnings to future White House candidates, should they show support. USA Today anticipated trouble ahead, despite the apparent legal embrace. Watch this space, America. The great social change could not have been ushered in at a more difficult moment, on the back of the Full Blood Moon eclipse and the Sun-Uranus clash! Moving on to this week – the Sun’s conjunction to Mercury Retrograde in Libra on Thursday 16th at 9.39pm in London, suggests Thursday-Friday is the moment that all concerned in the equal marriage negotiations and paperwork last week are suddenly made aware of technical error, human mistakes or other S.N.A.F.U. scenarios affecting the process.  So if you romped into gay, lesbian or transgender nuptials last week, you may well find that X factors beyond your control create snarls and snags near the 16th.

aries

Aries: 13-19 October

Aries, you appear to be slip-sliding into deep water that is rather uncontained and uncontrolled, and it may be time to get back on dry land to see what is actually going on. The presence of Neptune in Pisces in your solar Twelfth House suggests that what you submerge about yourself, or your life, is rather vulnerable to future confusion or even outright chaos. In other words, what is wholly concealed and virtually invisible is luring you into a zone you may prefer to avoid. There are just no boundaries, that’s all. There is haziness or vagueness. The Twelfth House is associated with espionage and dreams for the very same reason – it rules everything you do by yourself, unknown, unseen, undetected and usually a mystery to others. It is also associated with the etheric or spiritual body, and with all oceanic metaphors in general; thus you tend to drift, float, cruise – and sometimes end up over your head. Without going into too many of your clandestine activities, your inner space or your most uncredited, unrecognised role – it is safe to say you should put some firm rules in now. Even for yourself. It helps you to avoid setting up a precedent where, before you know what is going on in 2015, you find yourself wishing you’d kept it real.


taurus

Taurus: 13-19 October

Neptune transits are often delightful and d-lovely Taurus, as they take you further and further away from the real world with all its sharp edges and rough bits. Even for an earth sign like you, this is extremely hard to resist, and you already appear to have allowed one friend, or one group of people (possibly more) to seduce you into inhabiting rather a different space to the rest of us. We might term this space Neptune Land, where all you have to do is go with the currents, as they sweep you further and further away from boring old reality. Unfortunately Neptune Land has a habit of taking over, and before you know where you stand, you wake up in six or twelve months from now, wishing you’d never allowed yourself to drift along in the first place. Something about the personality of this friend – or the chemistry you share – suggests there are zero common-sense boundaries. Perhaps drugs or alcohol is a factor. Perhaps it’s not, but you are dealing with a friendship which is all guesswork and imagination – and assumptions. A group can function in the same way. Because of its porous structure or fuzzy edges, everyone is everywhere all the time, and everything is all over the place – all the time. Well, Taurus, you know what to do.


gemini

Gemini: 13-19 October

Gemini, anyone can understand why you are so determined to pursue something or someone which sounds like half a plot from a television series, or some chapter of a paperback novel. It compensates for the boring, mundane, unavoidable or inescapable aspects of your career, or your other role in life. In many ways you are being faithful to your twin selves at the moment, as one of you is labouring under the hardest cycle in 29 years (at least in terms of the work you must do every day) while another twin is longing to lose herself/himself in a very different kind of project, task or role. It is the latter that concerns you this week, as Neptune in the watery sign of Pisces has been dancing with Chiron (also in Pisces) for such a long time that you are in danger of missing a few warning signs. Do you really want to be led into a situation which could end up all over the place, later on? Where (if things reach a crossroads) people look for paperwork, or any hard evidence of a firm arrangement, and find nothing at all? These are classic manifestations of Neptune in your solar Tenth House. So too are people and organisations where there are no real parameters; boundaries are blurry between yourself and others, or the actual nature of the project or the job is never really pinned down or contained. All of this must be harnessed now. See what is going on before it happens and rein it in.


cancer

Cancer: 13-19 October

Cancer, there is a distinct note of unreality about your life as a traveller, student, teacher, publisher or writer. About your life on the internet, in particular, and in cultural exchange with Europeans, Americans and Australasians right across the region. This unreality is so familiar to you now, that you actually believe in the story. You have fallen very hard for the particular plotline being offered to you by the universe and this week you could lose yourself in it even further – all of which clangs the alarm bells in your horoscope. There is absolutely nothing wrong with pursuing a story, rather than reality, and you deserve your outlet as much as anyone else. The issues only arise later, though, as Neptune transits like the one circling you now (joined by Chiron, who never did have any respect for boundaries) are deceptive. They suck you in, and then when you hit issues later, you realise you went in, without any anchor or mooring. These watery metaphors are appropriate for this transit, and rather than getting lost in the currents surrounding your trip, relocation, export, course, seminar, book or website – you may prefer to shape what is going on. You actually have to get down on your hands and knees and craft this and contain it.


leo

Leo: 13-19 October

Leo, given that in recent years you went through one of the most gruelling financial transits known to humankind, you do have a very different perspective on money, property, charity, shopping, business, selling and all the rest of it. When Saturn went through Virgo, and Uranus went through Pisces, you had not just one, but two of the heavy hitters of the horoscope, fully occupying your cash and lifestyle zones. I mention this, because the story continues this year with Neptune in Pisces. He has also been joined by his wife Salacia, who was discovered in the year of the Asian Tsunami, and Chiron, the great maverick of astrology. Having learned some money, property or business lessons the hard way in recent years, you appear to have missed out on others. The great thing about stargazing is that you can acquire them quickly and easily this week, without any pain. In actual fact all you have to do is look at the bare facts of what is now gathering speed and stand back from the situation as if it was another woman; another man. Where is there woolly thinking? Where is there a fuzziness about the deal or arrangement? Where are there glorious fantasies, dreams and imaginings – but nothing concrete? The Eighth House of astrology is associated with power-based relationships which revolve around everything you own, earn or owe. Save yourself trouble later by being utterly clear now.


virgo

Virgo: 13-19 October

Virgo, it is not too late to wake up and smell the roses – and see the lay of the land. Astrology is about life gardening and you have some pruning and weeding to do, before (to extend the analogy) the landscape of your love life becomes too confusing to cut through. This may not happen for some months but you need to be sharply aware of the potential for chaos now, as the Seventh House of your horoscope, which describes the relationship you have with your former, current or potential partner – is fraught with risks. This is the least romantic and welcome message in the world and you can see why people often have problems with astrologers – they seem to be clanging a bell in the most boring way sometimes. Yet the bell has to be clanged. You two have the kind of chemistry which is all experiment and no rule book. Enough said. Now, some Virgo people are more consumed by hate than love at the moment. The Seventh House also rules deeply unfair and unjust situations where one side always feels heavily at odds with the other. There are zero boundaries here either. You need to be very sharply attuned to the real world to see it – and to know it – but for weeks now, you’ve just been led into this. And this now has to stop, yes?


libra

Libra: 13-19 October

Libra, the pattern of your daily life and the fabric of your working day, is something which must now be rescued. If you do not do something fairly drastic to haul yourself back to reality, you could be dealing with the most baffling situation in 2015 – or even a genuinely chaotic episode. In order to fix things before they go any further it will be necessary to analyse what you are doing in eight hours chunks. The eight hours or so, you sleep. The eight hours you work. The eight hours you play. The details there hold the key. What or who is all conjecture and guesstimation? What or who is not remotely real-world at the moment? What or who is alluring, and yet (you know this deep down) somehow not entirely concrete yet? The Sixth House of your solar chart is about the tiny details of your working life, including housework, and also the way you treat your body. It covers food, drink, drugs and exercise for this reason. It covers doctors and healers. In astrology there is no separation between work and body; one serves the other. This is where you appear to be drifting without any real idea of what is happening, though – at least according to your solar chart. And now, rather than later, it may be time to haul yourself back to normality/reality.


scorpio

Scorpio: 13-19 October

Scorpio, you probably need to have a real-world discussion with, or about, the children – before you go in any deeper. This also applies to your godchildren or young relatives. For some weeks now you have been edging into water which is quite unknown without any real sense of where it might realistically be taking you. This also applies to any relationship where you might become pregnant, or become a step-parent. Finally, for those Scorpio people who are involved with youth and the young on a professional or philanthropic level, it is very much about those projects and plans which need to be sharply assessed and brought into line with the rest of your life. This has been an unusual year in that there has been a strong tidal pull in your horoscope, created by Neptune, his wife Salacia, and also Chiron – all in the same sign, Pisces, in the same area of your horoscope, which describes how you leave the legacy of your personality to those who come after you. Over the last few weeks something very new has arisen, like the birth of a very different kind of stretch of water, and it has been all too easy to just dive in and let the currents take you where they will. It may be boring but you need to measure this and monitor it. And you may know it.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 13-19 October

Sagittarius, there has been a reasonable amount of wistful thinking and wild conjecture about your house, family, home town, homeland, apartment or household in recent weeks. All of it has been a wonderful place to escape to, mentally. None of it has any relationship whatsoever with the real world and yet what happens this week will force an encounter between the last few weeks, and the way things actually are. At this point you may be tempted to escape further and avoid a discussion, or keep it in the same zone of unreality it has occupied since September. Yet your horoscope suggests you would be far better off confronting the basics – and also turning to common-sense about the potential outcomes. You do have to be sensible about your place, or your people, and nothing less will do. Neptune can work in the most subtle way so that before you know it, you are up to your neck in a situation you could have avoided, which has been based on misunderstanding, hazy grasp of detail and fuzzy thinking. There may even be a physical lack of boundaries at your place which compounds this (personal space at home; fence lines) or via the council or government. On a more personal note, the people you are dealing with (close relatives or flatmates) may open up the kind of situation where nothing is pinned down; nothing is demarcated. Well, only one can person can fix that!


capricorn

Capricorn: 13-19 October

Capricorn, the time has come, the Walrus said, to speak of many things. The internet among them. I am quoting Lewis Carroll because he was ruled by Neptune, the planet which now holds sway over the Third House of your horoscope. The Third House is associated with Skype, e-mail, websites, social media and blogging. It is also responsible for media, publishing, multimedia and telephones. Nobody would doubt that the last few weeks has been a wonderful escape, of Carroll-like proportions, as Neptune has gone from strength to strength in your chart, alongside his dreamy wife Salacia and the anything-goes centaur Chiron. You must now deal with what and who is really there, though, and understand the vast extent to which escapism has replaced real communication. There is nothing at all wrong with Neptune when he is in his correct place. Without him we would not have Alice in Wonderland. Or Alice Through the Looking-Glass. In your own life, though, there is a stern, wagging finger in your horoscope right now. The finger warns against becoming hopelessly lost in cyberspace, or its paper or media equivalents, and dealing with the aftermath of that. These things which seem so real can have a bigger impact than you might assume; the Third House also rules the mind, and your mind makes your world, what it is. When the chance comes this week, try to set boundaries around the internet, or other aspects of your Communication H.Q. and remember your Capricorn birthright; you are a grounded earth sign.


aquarius

Aquarius: 13-19 October

Aquarius, September and October have lured you into financial, property, business or charity options with a siren song. Will you end up on the rocks? Well, if we were going to be utterly pessimistic and Eeyore-like about 2015, we might say yes. That would be just as unrealistic as assuming everything will be as sweet as honey, though. I am referencing A.A. Milne here because there is often a children’s-book quality about Neptune transits like the one you are experiencing. It all makes an excellent story. Yet if you go beyond the story you will see huge chunks of the plot are missing. Like, the actual numbers (for example). Or the knowledge base about particular economic, house, flat or corporate realities (especially those which belong to 2015). This is worth remembering this week because so much of what you have been discussing or dreaming about in the last few weeks directly concerns next year. And now, before you go any further, you really must start arming yourself with what is really, truly there. And get to know the facts inside-out, even if you find it dull.


pisces

Pisces: 13-19 October

Pisces, if you have cast yourself in a particular light, or with a certain name, or a selected role – you may now want to step outside it. Why step outside? Because it is the only way to extricate yourself from one of the most potentially chaotic cycles in years. This situation is still too early to call, but ever since September, you appear to have been thoroughly seduced by something (or perhaps someone) which impacts your label, personal appearance, persona and name. Your profile, title or role. Anybody can see why you have gratefully followed this particular pathway, in reference to the way you look or appear. It has been the total alternative from the real world you have been looking for – or your soul has been craving – and now it is there, you do not want to let it go. This week may well force you to release your grip, though, as when it comes to all the ‘me’ issues, you have more to gain by getting real. You can continue this dance if you want to, but when the music changes, you may wish you had spent the middle days of October in a more realistic discussion with yourself. It is perfectly fine to have pie-in-the-sky notions about yourself, or the the world sees you, at other times – but this cycle is already looking potentially very messy. In fact, by next year, it could all catch up with you – unless you skid to a halt now and begin the rather boring but necessary task of reining it all in.

Your Horoscope 6th through 12th October

Astrologer’s Diary

Libra rules marriage and equality, and consequently it rules marriage equality. What happens when there is an eclipse in Libra, and Mercury Retrograde too? The week commencing 6th October will bring a critical moment for the global push for marriage equality pursed by gay, lesbian and transgender people. Expect a cover-up. The public (we, the people) will not be told the whole truth. In addition, Mercury’s retrograde motion suggests weeks of stalemates, u-turns and mistakes, with no final outcome possible until October is out of the way. The world should know where it stands on this early October equal marriage issue, from mid-November.

aries

Aries: 6-12 October 2014

Aries, the total eclipse of the Moon in your sign, along with the presence of Uranus, also in your sign, suggests a week when you will be confronted by the reality of everything you have been trying to do with your image, appearance, profile or brand. Quite naturally you have had zero interest in repeating your own past, or sticking to what everyone else is doing. The recent Jupiter-Uranus trine gave you what you wanted; the freedom to set your own, utterly unique agenda, no matter if your priority has been using yourself – almost as if you were a commodity – or perhaps just dropping labels and pigeonholes as fast as you could. If only it was that easy this week! You may want to let the next seven days go by, though, without reacting or responding too much. Later, later. I might also stress the ‘later, later’ message in relation to your girlfriend, boyfriend, ex or potential lover. There are much easier times to draw big conclusions Aries, particularly as Mercury Retrograde is at large and therefore the information and communication just isn’t there. Can you fast-forward the talk?


taurus

Taurus: 6-12 October 2014

Taurus, you have been living with Uranus in your solar Twelfth House now you are wholly committed to changing – all the time, every month if you have to – in order to pursue what and who excites you. Amazingly, the rest of the world doesn’t really see, know or understand. You are either operating far below the floorboards; pulling strings like an unseen puppetmaster – or you may be one of those Taureans who have dropped out. In astrology everything is cyclical, so although your life has been exhilarating when it comes to what is so elusive, unseen, or unknown about your world – it is now confronting. The eclipse will polarise opinion, or create an internal division for you. That is what an eclipsed Full Moon does! Let the moment pass. Find out what you need to know. You may also want to allow for u-turns, delays or changes with your daily workload or your body, in the weeks ahead. This is a process. Not a final destination.


gemini

Gemini: 6-12 October 2014

Gemini, your daughter, son, godchild or young relative may be at the heart of a story which will be unsettled and unfinished until November so try not to escape a swift or clear outcome this week; your ruler Mercury is retrograde, or appearing to move backwards and forwards (when he is not stalling) in the zone of your chart which rules parenthood. Beyond this, of course there may be youth related projects, or relationships which may usher in pregnancy or a step-parenting role one day. Again, nothing is settled; nothing is final. There is a tremendous focus on an old friendship, group project, social media or particular tribe of people around you. You can draw your map and point your compass another time. The needle is swinging all over the place, and that eclipse is utterly unbalanced. Even you, so famous for asking the right question, at the right time, may not even know what to ask him, her or them. Wait.


cancer

Cancer: 6-12 October 2014

Cancer, your ruler the Moon is eclipsed by the Sun this week, in an area of your horoscope associated with success, achievement and ambition. Expect a corresponding lack of clarity and visibility; you may prefer to make sweeping assessments another week. Of course, to date, you have been fortunate enough to enjoy the most unexpected, exciting and liberating twists and turns, all made possible by the recent trine between Jupiter and Uranus. Abandoning the template and confounding other people’s rather cliched ideas about who you are, and what you do, has made you feel utterly free. Now, comes the other side of the bargain,which is uncertainty. Try not to make dramatic choices out of ‘not knowing’ as it’s rather like lurching around in the dark. Better to wait until this eclipse has passed. The Mercury Retrograde cycle is also having an impact on your plans for the house; a relative; your apartment; your home town; your homeland. Just treat this week, and in fact the rest of October, as a first draft. You can go to second or third draft once you have a fuller picture.


leo

Leo: 6-12 October 2014

Leo, your ruler the Sun blots out the light of the Moon this week, in the sign of Aries, which describes your travel, publishing, foreign or educational agenda. There are quite honestly better times to make big judgement calls about Europe, Australasia, America or further afield. This message is doubled if the people, place or plan is directly linked to your website, book, trip, relocation or course. Everything is like crackling static anyway, because Uranus is also in Aries, and this planet has long been associated with the most peculiar periods of instability and uncertainty. Best to just go with this – do what you can – and handle it day by day, rather than trying to plunge into your Leo 2014 Agenda. Mercury is also causing potential havoc in areas of your life associated with the internet, media, multimedia, public speaking, publishing and other forums for your ‘voice’. Just factor it in. Read the fine print. Back up your copy. Have Plan B.


virgo

Virgo: 6-12 October 2014

Virgo, some weeks are very clear, in terms of your bank account, house, business, company, apartment, possessions or salary. Other weeks are outrageously unclear, and this is one of them. The Moon is eclipsed in Aries, a sign which describes the more complex arrangements in your life, no matter if they are with the taxman, or a former business partner. At the other end of the astrological spectrum, Mercury is retrograde in Libra. And all this is happening in a month when we have one further eclipse, in Scorpio, the sign that rules the larger world economic picture. This is one of those weeks when you have to adopt a wait-and-see policy rather than reacting too immediately to what is essentially a state of flux. Let this pass. And read the fine print once it’s all in writing (and you must get in in writing; this is not the week to leave a great decision to a verbal understanding). In a perfect world? The final choice would come mid November.


libra

Libra: 6-12 October 2014

Libra, what a long, strange trip  you have been on with your partner, ex or potential lovers. If your enemy, rival or opponent was more of an emotional magnet since 2011, then it is this person (odious though he or she is) who has been at the heart of the dodgem car ride. When Uranus is in your opposite sign, you tend to find that your opposite number, or your opponent, makes life one big chain of bump-relax-bump-swerve-relax-bump. And you may have experienced this with just one individual or a whole lot of them, playing that lover or enemy role. Now, we have an eclipse this week which will greatly unbalance the scales if you let it. So don’t let it. Try to work around rather than plunge in. You are also very likely to have issues about your reputation, personal appearance, brand or packaging at the moment. Mercury is retrograde; have alternatives and allow for delays or mistakes until November.


scorpio

Scorpio: 6-12 October 2014

Scorpio, the Moon is eclipsed in Aries this week, which rules your daily lifestyle, sense of duty and service to others, work ethic and normal routine. Part of this is also the relationship you have with your own body. What happens when the Moon’s light is blotted out? It’s rather like someone handing you a torch and then losing the battery power. If your instinct tells you to wait, wait, wait until you attempt to find out what is going on – then you are right. If ever there was a week to reserve judgement and hold off from dramatic decisions (especially about work) this is it. In addition to this picture of the heavens, there is a reminder from Mercury, retrograding through Libra, that you must treat what is so secret, or so submerged, as a wonky work in progress. This is by no means resolved, and any hope of a speedy and simple outcome is pretty unlikely; wait until November. This also applies to any behind-the-scenes role.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 6-12 October 2014

Sagittarius, by rights, a simple Full Moon in your friendship and groups zone should merely show you what (or whom) is not sitting right; the better to make changes. Instead, we have an eclipse, so the Moon’s light, which normally exposes all the details about the friend, or the circle of people, is blocked. Would you prefer to fumble around and use guesswork to make your choices this week, or wait until conditions are clearer? Yes, I thought so. Mercury is also moving backwards and forwards, so the messages are not getting through, in October. Or what you thought you knew in September, you didn’t. If you can possibly play for time until at least November (when a decision might actually stick) so much the better. This week also emphasises your son, daughter, godchild or young relative. At a time when you might have hoped for even more change to jet-propel you, instead you have a state of flux, which is a very different thing. This also applies to youth related projects, and any relationship which could make you a parent. When in doubt, surf these wild waves.


capricorn

Capricorn: 6-12 October 2014

Capricorn, the illumination and understanding you might have assumed would come about your career, university course or voluntary role is not there. Instead, what you have is the peculiar sensation that you ought to see – and you should know – but something (or someone) is getting in the way. Under these circumstances, you may want to defer judgement. An eclipse is rare in astrology. This is a rare crossroads for you. There is also Mercury Retrograde to confound things. At a time when the discussion, paperwork or internet communication should be helping, it is more likely to delay you or thwart you. This is a very good week to go over things in your own mind; to review, rethink and reprise. It is not a great week to dive into dramatic decisions or to necessarily expect that October will sort things out. Keep copies; get things in writing; read the fine print. This is also the moment to be a realist about your house. This also applies to your apartment, home life, home town, family or household. The most thrilling possibilities have emerged. Now you have to see where the road blocks might be. Uranus in Aries is blocked by the Sun this week. Of course, you’ll have your space and freedom in the end – but handle with care now.


aquarius

Aquarius: 6-12 October 2014

Aquarius, your ruler Uranus is in your internet, media, publishing and multimedia zone at the moment, which also describes your voice across other platforms and in other contexts. Life has recently been thrilling; the more you reached out to real-life experiments, the more life delivered. Now you have an odd situation where Uranus is blocked by the Sun, and then the Sun in Libra will blot out the Moon in Aries. That is a lot of blocked, blotted narrative in a week when you probably hope you could just get on with the story. Instead, cool your boots, to quote Withnail and I. Take this entire week one step at a time, putting one foot in front of the other, and being prepared to hope sideways or move backwards if you must. What else can you do, when you can see so very little? And note the story with your travel, publishing, foreign or educational agenda now too. This is a story which will be rewritten, partly erased, then rewritten again by November. Knowing that, and allowing for u-turns or mistakes, helps you keep your plans as flexible as they have to be. Cover yourself.


pisces

Pisces: 6-12 October 2014

Pisces, if your financial, business, banking, buying/selling or property affairs are entwined with another Pisces, or a Virgo, you may well want to let this week pan out, before you go plunging into groundbreaking discussion or epoch-making paperwork. No matter which signs are involved (and of course you may have no idea what sign your taxman, real estate agent or bank manager is) this is a hairy week. Hairy weeks can be useful, because they show you what’s what. They update you on what you need to pursue, later on, in order to reshape things. They give you time to sit and think, because quite frankly, that’s all you really can do when you have an eclipse like this, revealing so little, and covering up so much. On top of that we have Mercury, the planet of information, communication and negotiation, retrograding through Libra, the sign which rules your last will and testament; family legacy; loans; business partnerships; commission; loans; credit; debt. Shall I go on? I am sure you would rather do other things but please read the fine print, have alternatives and if you can do this thing any time, do it after November has well and truly begun, when Mercury is out of his final shadow. Before then, it’s just way too…unclear.

Your Horoscope 29 September through 5 October

Astrologer’s Diary

October brings an eclipse in Scorpio, the sign which rules global currency and the sharemarkets. It also sees Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, which typically brings sharemarket flux, and furthermore, Saturn in Scorpio remains firmly fixed until Christmas. An eclipse is always a cover-up job; things are concealed not revealed to the public. This, combined with the typical chaos of Mercury Retrogade, does not come out of nowhere; the situation is being set up this week as the planets in their courses slowly move into position. By November we will know exactly what the repercussions are for shares, for currency, for the banking community and for world economies. Christmas will be worth a serious celebration, though; the toughest global economic cycle in years is fading. Apart from a brief return ‘blip’ midway through 2015, Saturn in Scorpio has done his worst. Do watch this week though; expect tons of clues and signs.

aries

Aries: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Aries, before things go any further with your big secret, invisible role, behind-the-scenes function, confidential concerns or classified information – please do step back from the situation and become sharply aware of the potential for confusion, later on. Not so much now; Neptune in Pisces is unlikely to reveal himself this early on. Later this year though, and into next year, there will be every reason to thank your lucky stars (literally) as your horoscope is giving you a klaxon-horn warning; if you continue to meander aimlessly through this part of your life, where things are covered up from people, or you are acting alone, or operating at a submerged level (letting others take the credit) – then chaos is only a few months away. Try to be fully conscious of what you are doing and why. Of course, drugs and alcohol (even prescribed drugs) never clarify anything on a Neptune transit. If this is ringing bells, Aries, then it’s time to act.


taurus

Taurus: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Taurus, the presence of Neptune, Chiron and Salacia in your sector of friendship and group involvements in 2014 has not really affect you in a major way so far; the biggest story is yet to be told! However, it looks as if the opening chapters of this story are being written this week and a great deal depends on how you read the situation. If anyone uses the word ‘merge’ with you (or similar) then be on full alert, as Neptune in Pisces blurs the boundaries and you can end up with a very unfocussed situation indeed. Nip the potential for fuzzy situations in the bud, as soon as you see the early signs. Of course some friends or people in your group are fuzzy thinkers anyway; others have zero boundaries; still more are affected by booze or drugs and that means things can always become a little…blurry! People power is a great thing and friendship is an extremely good thing. It can and will be your escape from the real world in 2015. Yet much depends on how you handle things now. Demarcation is a great idea. You are an earth sign; stay grounded; remain anchored, put in some lines.


gemini

Gemini: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Gemini, your career, university life or non-profit role is intricately connected to two whopping cycles in your horoscope. One is Saturn in your Sixth House of daily routine, work ethic, service and duty to other people – which of course incorporates your lifestyle as a whole. The other is Neptune in your Tenth House of ambition, mission and position. This year he has been accompanied by his wife, the Trans-Neptunian object Salacia, and Chiron, the maverick. Saturn could not be more different. Saturn is about slow, stuck, serious situations with weighty decisions and heavy ramifications. This is why nothing has been swift or simple on a day-to-day, routine level – and obviously the situation with your body (then or now) has not been helpful. Moving on from that, this week is about recognising that putting in some boundaries with your project, plans, goals and role does not mean relinquishing the lovely sense of escapism that these provide. Far from it. You do not have to end up in mundane, grim, inescapable situations where it is all about work. Au contraire, Gemini, you can actually secure your escape from reality by ensuring that these very special plans and projects are grounded in the real world too. Don’t get cast adrift or end up over your head. Resist people or organisations where I Am The Walrus (The Beatles) is the theme song. You are not he or she; they are not you; you are not in this together; this is not the Sixties.


cancer

Cancer: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Cancer, the time has come to be acutely aware of your travel, publishing and educational agenda. To this list we might add specific regional or international connections; digital publishing on the web; academia and workshops. Beyond that, your horoscope might suggest issues about your beliefs – who and what you have faith in – no matter if it is science or astrology. How on earth can a long list like this be so interconnected? It’s not hard to see – especially if you step back from what has been happening to you throughout September. Now you are at a fated crossroads. Much depends on your ability to keep it real, keep it sensible and keep it tied to planet earth! When you have a trifecta like Neptune, Salacia and Chiron all in your Ninth House of expanded horizons, it is so easy to take both feet off the ground and end up drifting through some peculiar parallel universe where everything is both confused and confusing. This could affect a trip; a relocation; an export plan. It could affect a course; a website; a book. You must contain and control what is going on to avoid chaos in 2015.


leo

Leo: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Leo, the answer to your question about your money, business interests, house, flat, charity commitments or precious possessions is one word – Neptune. To this I might add two more words – Salacia and Chiron. These three horoscope factors have led you to the point where you simply must craft and shape things very astutely in order to help your own future. Why craft and shape? Because you are dealing with a person, an organisation (like a bank) or just an arrangement which desperately needs some containment. If you just let things slide, or let things drift, you will reach a point in 2015 or even 2016, depending on the nature of the agreement, where Neptune in Pisces will be opposed by Jupiter in Virgo and everything really will feel like one, great, overwhelming wave! Of course, surfing can be wonderful. But do you really want your finances, company, property, good cause or valuable items to leave you all at sea? Before things drift any further, sit very hard on any situation where you can see just how vague, woolly or unverified things might become. Tighten it up.


virgo

Virgo: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Virgo, if you are a regular reader of this website then you will know how easy it is to allow a marriage, serious relationship or secret crush to become your escape from the real world. You will also know how very tempting it is to allow your great rival, enemy or opponent to also function as a kind of theme park, where you get to avoid reality but lose yourself in the feud. This is all down to Neptune, Salacia and Chiron in your opposite sign of Pisces in 2014, and as your opposite sign rules your opposite number in life (usually a sexual partner; sometimes a work partner) and your opponents (that man or woman you loathe) you can see how things became…fluid. By fluid, I mean oceanic; full of ebbs and currents that sweep you this way and that, so that you end up feeling as if you are being pushed or pulled, here and there – but never actually in control. Never actually shaping and containing what is going on. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are always in control and can master the currents, drop anchor or swim back to shore. You two need rules. As in Rules. And flags.


libra

Libra: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Libra, it’s amazing how a dwarf planet like Pluto can also send you such a personal message about being dwarfed by situations, people or places which seem bigger than you are. In actual fact, your relative, house, flatmate, home town, flat or household issue is illusory. It was never that big to begin with and you can scale yourself up in the picture, as much as you like. Rather like height it’s immaterial; it’s question of attitude. Obviously things are now serious, and you must (and will) take control and make that overdue change. Begin with the idea that willpower is everything, though. That, and an appreciation of the Cancerians in your life – or just the Cancerians on the world stage. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a true patriot, who has never given up on Tibet. The late, great Nelson Mandela was all about his people; his family; his mother; his wider cultural and local tribe. Cancer the crab embraces its home (on its back) and thus there is a deep connection to bricks and mortar; house and garden. Beyond that, crabs are tribal by nature. The more you ‘do’ Cancer now, and truly get the qualities of that sign, the more powerful you become. Within two weeks you could have made so much progress. But it begins with steely willpower.


scorpio

Scorpio: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Scorpio, your own ruling planet Pluto was relegated to dwarf planet status in 2006, but nothing has diminished Pluto’s potency and power in your chart. He is here in your horoscope now, as a reminder that unless you finally, absolutely, take control (particularly mental control) of communication, internet, media, publishing and phone issues – life (or other people) will continue to take control of you. That sounds like rather a raw way of describing what has been going on, yet your strings are well and truly being pulled by either the most subtle, disguised and omnipresent aspects of life (which affect so many of us) – or by very particular individuals or organisations. So where do you start? Well, the good news is, now that Pluto is direct, and moving towards a decisive aspect with Uranus, the planet of radical change, everything is possible. Even in a two-week time-frame. And yet everything begins with you. Nobody can drop through your ceiling by helicopter and physically force you to do what it would take, to be the mistress or master of your domain. And that domain is entirely about social media, new media, old media, writing, public speaking, songwriting, singing, film-making, mime, languages and any other way you get through.


sagittarius

Sagittarius: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Sagittarius, others have been here before you in the pursuit of empowerment. And you truly need empowerment (but also, let’s face it, a big leap forward) with your money, house, apartment, precious possessions, business interests, or charity. You have been stuck with a Pluto cycle that moved nowhere fast, keeping you stuck in limbo for such a long time that it may now seem almost impossible to make any headway of your own. In fact, this is not true. Look at strong examples of those people or organisations which have performed strongly before you – even in the most intense conditions. All things are possible. Look at what you can actually do – rather than assume or imagine anything else. Update yourself online; do your homework. Compare notes and consult forums if you wish. Even beyond a short time-frame, think about the next few weeks as the first big step, then for subsequent months, as all other steps.


capricorn

Capricorn: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Capricorn, you occasionally hit a point in the Pluto in Capricorn cycle (your own sign) when you have to square up to this and look the reality in the eye. The reality is, unless you try very, very hard indeed where your brand, reputation, name, face, shape or profile is concerned – you will have to deal with something which is total evidence of your disempowerment. In other words, it’s walking, talking, visible proof that you took your hands off the wheel a few months ago, and no doubt it feels uncomfortable to even admit you went that far off track. In fact, you have been lumbered with a Pluto cycle that offered no easy progress; no chance of forward thrust; no possibility of real change at all. Now, however, you are in the perfect position to let some fairly intense emotion push you into huge strides with the way you look or appear. These huge strides have been taken before by others in exactly the same (or a similar) situation to yourself. They succeeded. So will you. Even if you succeed partially it is still better than the alternative. All this begins with willpower. And real selfhood.


aquarius

Aquarius: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Aquarius, some issues in your life are really only suitable for a discussion with the mirror; your journal; your anonymous blog; your therapist. Some issues work their way out through dreams. It’s a peculiar situation to be in, because the intensity is very real; so is the notion that you might actually change so much (hell, let’s be frank – transform) that you would become the most powerful version of yourself, possible. Yet despite this intensity and this undeniable possibility of total transformation and empowerment – you cannot really share. Either others have no concept of just how much you are deliberately tucking yourself away, out of sight, uncredited and unrecognised – or you may be guarding a genuine secret. What can you do, when you have to handle a cycle like Pluto Direct in the uncompromising sign of Capricorn? One way through just have to be isolating yourself from noise, distraction, other people – whatever it takes – until you can have that conversation with yourself. The one about doing whatever it takes, even in a couple of weeks, to get the upper hand with it all.


pisces

Pisces: 29 September - 5 October 2014

Pisces, Jupiter in Leo can be a curse as well as a blessing. By that I mean, before you can actually enjoy the substantial rewards of those amazing work or lifestyle options (I include study and volunteering in that) you have to deal with the issues. And that’s a nice word for things that irk you. Jupiter is a tremendous healer and helper. Yet nothing will change unless you face facts, and on a couple of occasions now, in the last 2-3 weeks, you have been pulled up short and forced to confront what others see, in terms of the way you conduct your work ethic, or look after your body, and your lifestyle as a whole. Self-criticism does not really work for your sign. You are an escape artist and would prefer to evade and turn away. That is totally understandable. Yet you stand to gain so much with an astonishingly improved daily routine, body relationship and working life within weeks – if you are only prepared to accept what Jupiter in Leo is doing for you. Your present is not the past. You keep thinking there are no resources available to pursue what you must. In fact, the resources are all there, but absolutely nothing will alter until you do some homework; get some willpower; translate notes into action; earn those rewards. You know the X factor in all this? It is a group of people, including one or more friends. And if you have Aquarius planets or asteroids, it will feel so natural…

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?
