The eclipse on 29th April promised a cover-up involving Australia, Indonesia and Antarctica. The mystery has now been revealed.
The eclipse on 29th April promised a cover-up involving Australia, Indonesia and Antarctica as it was visible across all three regions. It hasn’t taken long for the mystery to be revealed, as the media just confirmed Australia now has a new border agency. Radio Australia asked Immigration Minister Scott Morrison if the new agency explained ‘why the Prime Minister pulled out of his planned trip to Indonesia last week?’ here. The other eclipse story? The Japanese will be back in a ‘season of slaughter’ in the Antarctic, pursuing whales, according to Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson, speaking to the ABC. It’s being planned, apparently under the cover of being for ‘research’ purposes. An eclipse always hides the truth. Headlines at NBC News also confirmed another astrology prediction: that the rare annular eclipse in Taurus, which rules the sharemarkets and economy, would see a major cover-up. Well, on Wednesday 30th April NBC reported the Dow Jones hit an all-time high. I will leave it to you to speculate what is being hidden! You can read my original astrological predictions about the eclipse by scrolling down to The Astrologer’s Diary over the last fortnight.
Aries: 12-18 May
Aries, try and get as much done with this new internet, media, communication or publishing story as you can, before the story starts to swing backwards and forwards from 23rd May. Lock in the technology and paperwork in particular but cover yourself for delays, reversals or technical hitches in late May, June and July. Did you know there is also tremendous power building in your horoscope, thanks to your chosen field, industry or profession? Hopefully your intention was crystal-clear earlier this year, as the more potent your vision, the more likely it is to start delivering. You can literally have what you were pursuing. And beyond the actual labels or descriptions, this is about feeling in control – and also being in control. Savouring what it feels like to be a serious player. It is tremendously important to understand that what he, she or they hold with you is dynamite-strength. Handle with care. And share.

Taurus: 12-18 May
Taurus, what happened last week made you realise just how much the stakes had been raised with your travel, foreign, internet, education, publishing or academic agenda. Life now seems rather intense, but in a good way – as long as you are prepared to handle what is there, carefully and with long, deep breaths. There comes a point when you have to own your own power in a situation; to give yourself credit for having built up certain credentials, credibility and so on. At the same time, it’s pretty clear that the other person or organisation involved has its own power too. Somehow, this cocktail has to shaken up the right way – yet it is all possible. The other key to this week is timing. Get the financial, property or business matter finalised by the 23rd. If you think the discussion, paperwork or printing is going to continue beyond that, allow for u-turns or even a state of suspension later on, in all your planning.

Gemini: 12-18 May
Gemini, things certainly went up a notch last week in terms of your money, house, flat, business, charity or possessions. It suddenly became rather real and power-packed. Of course, that’s the way it was always heading, although you had no idea, back in the first quarter of this year! The trick with this cycle is to use what you are given. But most of all to have a searingly honest conversation with yourself so that you own your intention. If there is any reticence about being the full-strength, high-functioning human being that you could be – face it. More than anything else on the planet, money, property and possessions trigger all sorts of weird behaviour in us. Some of it is down to a fear of the unknown. After all, if you have never actually understood what it feels like to have control (and be in control) because of what you own, owe or earn – how can you go there? The answer is, in non-threatening, incremental stages. One final point: if your business card, personal advertising, internet profile or self-promoting blog is rolling after May 23rd allow for possible changes or delays and factor that into your planning as Mercury is shadow retrograde soon and you know what that means!

Cancer: 12-18 May
Cancer, it looks as though you had a vivid confrontation with your own objectives last week – at least in terms of the man or woman who matters so much. Your former, current or potential partner is one candidate. Another might be your sworn enemy or opponent. In any case, it’s now game on. What you were doing all along, though you may not have realised it, was exploring the idea that to be really powerful, you have to be a brilliant balancer of scales. You have to be gifted at taking a man who is very different from you, or a woman who is at opposite ends of the spectrum – and making it work. If you have an enemy perhaps you have been pursuing the scales of justice. In any case, the more you act the part of the people person – the diplomat – or even the fiend for fairness -the better. This is where you can actually make a difference. And you will stand a surprisingly good chance of taking on who or what is so potent.

Leo: 12-18 May
Leo, there is a lifestyle shift taking place which will give you your mojo back and also give you a definite sense of your hands being back on the reins. What a long, strange trip it’s been. In many ways, you are now operating with a whole new ball game in terms of your chosen profession, industry or field. That means there is new power to be had; the only way to get it, though, is to be of service to other people. It’s rather like a Prime Minister promising to do his or her duty and work for others, despite having the top job. The other big shake-down in your chart is about your body; your physical temple. Figuring out that, is also part of the quest to figure out your daily working life at the moment, and this applies no matter if you are donating your time or being fully paid for it. One thing that occurs about your chart now is this line from a song – ‘It’s now or never.’ But you couldn’t possibly go back to the old world. Not now.

Virgo: 12-18 May
Virgo, the trick is to breathe deeply – despite the intensity of last week – and remember that as long as you act like a Queen or King with a junior ‘court’ to guide and chaperone, you will succeed. What you want and need is power and potency. This is available to you but you must assume the throne. These are not ‘children’ that you ‘have’ in your life. They are your heirs. This applies to nieces, nephews and godchildren too. Then there are relationships which may bring pregnancy or step-children in. Finally, there are large-scale jobs or projects which have sweeping influence over younger people, en masse. It may seem rather artificial to strike a pose and rather self-consciously assume the mantle of leader or guiding light. If you are shrewd, though, you will have seen just how spectacularly well this has already worked for you in the last year or two. Keep going. Head up. Show this generation the way. And if your horoscope this week is about impressing the hell out of someone who could co-parent with you, then do that too.

Libra: 12-18 May
Rather breathtaking developments in the last seven days or so, have shown you just how much is possible, thanks to your close relative, shared household, renovation plan, mortgage commitment or rental arrangement. There may also be broader issues about your home town or homeland. You have not always been completely sure of where things were going, yet your instinct told you to shepherd and protect the clan; to develop stronger ties to your part of the world; to invest (in every sense of the word) in property. Now you are seeing just how far this can take you in life, and how much further you can go by the end of this year. It may feel odd to pretend to be clucky, or maternal, or patriotic, or such a homebody. (If you don’t have heavenly bodies in Cancer then it’s a complete fabrication!) Nevertheless, what is coming to pass in your life makes it abundantly clear that this is what makes you most powerful.

Scorpio: 12-18 May
Scorpio, first of all, please allow for changes or delays with the financial, property or business discussion if you are getting to the signature stage after May 23rd, or if meetings are set to continue in June. Mercury will shortly be shadow retrograde and I do not want you to get caught. Read the fine print at the very least. What else dominates your horoscope? Presumably the realisation that you actually are changing the way you are heard or read. You really have hit a point in your life where the new way of communicating, using the media, using the web – or whatever – is actually close enough to touch. As very few Scorpio people have heavenly bodies in Gemini in their horoscope, for most of you this week may come down to faking it, until you are making it. What will you be faking? A breezy, airy way of networking, tapping away on smart phones and finding just the right words for your online life.

Sagittarius: 12-18 May
Sagittarius please be aware that the situation with your former, current or potential partner could drag on, if you put things forward after May 23rd, or even go through changes. This also applies to enemies, rivals or opponents. If you can speed up the most important parts of this discussion, new arrangement or agreement, so much the better. Even the basic business of dating could become really patience-testing once Mercury goes retrograde shadow, so just be aware of the rather circuitous pathway you are on with this man or woman, should the road stretch out from late May. What else matters now? The money or property. The possessions or business. What can you do? Everything! Put a price on what or who is most precious and then make it clear that some things are not for sale. Learn to buy and trade at a profit. Hold the dearest things (in every sense of the word) close. That way lies remarkable power. If you want to take part in my free astrology salon on Friday May 31st, London time, please register at Get The Gloss.
Capricorn: 12-18 May
Capricorn, the relatively recent work-related arrangements or professional plans and projects will hit a state of suspended animation from late May, and by July there may have been one weighty waiting game, reversal, adaptation or even abandonment of details. Be sharply aware of this as you get on with the discussions or paperwork now, as from the 23rd it could slide backwards and forwards and you need to factor that in. The key to your week is actually self-promotion and self-assertion. There is no other way to be powerful. It is what makes you most potent, so even though it may feel a little odd to be so obsessed with yourself, or so relentless about pushing ahead – keep it up. Now, more than ever, you are in a position to utterly change the way you look and appear. What is stopping you?

Aquarius: 12-18 May
Aquarius, the events of the last few days have shown you that you can get yourself settled into a completely different world, in terms of your dark secrets or hidden roles. It must come as a shock to realise that after all this time spent speculating with a vague vision of the outcome – the outcome has never been so close. It will help you to be as elusive, mysterious, secretive and slippery as you can. When you are out of sight, out of mind, the wheels really go round. That’s what happens when Pluto passes through your Twelfth House! Whatever is buried at the bottom of the ocean, in terms of what you are covering up from other people, or doing without any credit or acknowledgment, is what matters most. One final point. If crucial paperwork or digital plans involving your son, daughter, young relative or godchild are set to roll – and quite recent – and if they are rolling past May 23rd – have Plan B and allow for x factors.

Pisces: 12-18 May
Pisces if your home renovations, family negotiations, property sale, new lease, household reshuffle or other major move is rolling now, try to get the key stuff finished by May 23rd. It may be your least favourite phrase but Mercury Retrograde Shadow is here from 23rd May and it’s pretty clear you will be held up or have the story changing, in late May, June or July. Be fully aware of that and factor it into your plans. The other key to your week is your old friend – or the group project. Pluto in Capricorn tells you to network widely, keep it light, maintain your cool, oxygenate the discussion, avoid sexual chemistry, respect genuine friendship and all the rest. This is what makes you potent these days. And you are also around some fairly potent people. Do you have anything in Aquarius in your chart? Then it will feel quite natural to you!
