** Your Monthly AstroNews **

 Virgo Psices CancerTaurus

Astrological Greetings, Dear Ones,

I have missed you all, dear ones! Forgive me for my absence, and I hope you relish reading this month’s newsletter, jam packed as always with juicy planetary action!

I’m sure you have all become well aware that Uranus, planet of change, upheaval, chaos and technology, has shifted his 7 year rendezvous from pioneering Aries to steady Taurus. However, this is going to shake things up quite a bit – especially in the world of money and finance.

Placid Taurus is about to get a lightning dose of change, and it is going to be a wild ride! Hopefully, this period will see the way we handle money, security and our physical homes very differently. Who knows – by the end of his 7 year stay, we might be free of Banks, and free of Mortgages or the battle for one – nomadic living is the potential outcome here, potential changes and big shifts to the way we handle our food and agriculture, as well as financial freedom – a girl can hope, right?

Taurean Sun and Moon people – be prepared for a wakin’ shakin’ – yes, it is scary, because you folks do rely deeply on having your safe home around you and money in the bank, and change is perhaps the most frightening for you – but the promise of freedom is the reward, and you will find yourselves (eventually) taking fresh, deep gulps of air with your hair down, wild and free.  Those especially born on the very first days of Taurus – the 21st. 22nd or 23rd of April – this change will come early, so be bright and ready!

Mars, planet of War, is also already in his “shadow” phase – he has entered the degrees he will go Retrograde in, in other words. He goes fully Retrograde at the end of June, but those of us who have day time charts, have an Aries or Scorpio Ascendant, or planets between 8 degrees of Aquarius and 28 of Capricorn – we will feel this the most – already. Cast yourself back to mid-2016, when Mars went Retrograde in Sagittarius.

What was happening for you – what frustrated you, what slowed down? Was it money, love, did you find yourself embroiled in work frustrations? These patterns might come up again over this time, and we really need to take a deep breath, calm down and try our damndest NOT to react. Tempers will be frayed, and we could have big fears rear their ugly heads. We are pushed to be more vulnerable and honest with ourselves, to confront the ways in which we handle anger – is it constructive or destructive – and to perhaps try and learn a new way. It is up to us not to trample on the little people, or be trampled upon, as Mars feels deeply angered by having to go backwards when all he wants to do – always – is charge ahead!

Saturn Retrograde all month, 8 – 6 degrees Capricorn

Pluto Retrograde all month, 21 – 20 degrees Capricorn

Jupiter Retrograde all month, 16 – 14 degrees Scorpio

Mars Shadow Phase, Retrograde as from 26 June at 9 Aquarius

With that said, as usual, I will be including information for my upcoming workshops, courses and retreats in the emailer. If you wish to just read your ‘scopes, just scroll a little further down and there will be your guidance for the next month!

To every Season, Turn, Turn, Turn, Saturday 24 June 2018

Join me at the Cape Astrology Association on Sunday 24 June for a talk on our Astrological Life Cycles.

One of the greatest gifts that Astrology can give us, is the ability to understand Cycles, to understand life’s crucial turning points and make room for these changes to happen. These Life Cycles mirror the Cycles of the Cosmos – things are born, grow, and die, to be reborn in the ever turning Wheel of Life. Cycles are what makes the Sun rise and set, what makes the Moon in all her Phases affect life here on earth just as clearly as the Sun makes all things grow. We live by the Sun and the Moon, and we live by the Seasons – “ to everything there is a season”.

When using Astrology, we can very clearly see and understand that our lives mirror these important cycles, which we too, go through the same birth, growth and death as all living things.

This is a great comfort to us, especially when faced with Life’s challenges – we can understand where they have sprung from, where their starting point is, when the changes will intensify, and (often thankfully), when they will come to an end. We can learn to understand this timing, through Astrology, and prepare for these changes and make the necessary adjustments.

Margarita will lead a discussion on these extremely important Life Cycles which are applicable at certain ages in everybody’s lives, which can help bring clarity to a current cycle, or help you prepare for an upcoming cycle – and of course, understand the cycles of life in others.

Tarot Class

So with that all said and done, let’s look ahead to June –

Dates and signs of the Moon Cycles for June: 

Full Moon : 28 June, 6 Capricorn

This is a time to LET GO of something that no longer serves you as the Moon begins to wane, in line with the house that the degree of the Moon falls into. It is also a time in which a light will be shone into that area of life and stirred up. It is a time in which your original intention at New Moon could be fulfilled.

This month’s Full Moon falls in strong Capricorn. Emotions can be muted, disciplined, as we wade through career responsibilities, and we might be very focused on culminations and achievements in the work sphere. This is a great time to see the fruit of our labour, and our Ruler Saturn is strong in the same sign, conjunct this Full Moon. Expect external shifts, to mirror the internal work we have been doing over the last few years and be prepared to face any of our shortcomings with courage to change.  Uranus is giving a wide trine to this Full Moon, which means we could marry innovation with structure, progress with tradition and freedom with responsibility.

New Moon , 13 June, 22 Gemini

This is the time to SET INTENTIONS in the line of something that you want to manifest in your life, as the Moon begins to gather light and grow, shaping our desires and needs, in line with the house that the degree of the New Moon falls into. It is a time to make our dreams come true, and we should align ourselves with what we truly want at this time.

This can be a sparkly, light New Moon, and it’s a wonderful time to set intentions in line with the things we wish to learn in the new few months – course we wish to take, conversations we need to have. We can find our voice here, and set out to learn everything we are curious about. Mercury, ruler of this Moon, sits side by side like a good friend to this Moon – the ideas that come up during this time can be wonderfully ingenious!

**To see how the planets affect you personally, simply access Astro.com to explore your chart, or contact me for an in depth & insightful  reading. **

And to end off, here are your monthly horoscopes, sign by sign, based on your Sun Sign – savour, and enjoy!

  scorpio Sag LeoAries

Aries

You’re in for a social month, Rams, and being one of the most idealistic signs around, it is also a great time to review those dreams, polish them up and make them nice and shiny. What have you neglected that you would like to pursue, Aries? What dreams are lying at the wayside for you to pick up? Perhaps your friends can help you, and I know you think that everything that has anything to do with team means a chance for you to compete (and win!), but let’s put that aside for now  and try to work together. Thankfully, Uranus has moved out of your sign (although will go back for a few months but is them gone forever!) so things might start feeling a whole lot less chaotic for you. That said, there is still some intense energy drifting around so for the love of all that is good Aries, don’t react – take a deep breath and hold back before you break a bone!

Taurus

Taureans all over the world are feeling the beginnings of mighty Uranus, planet of change, rolling into their sign. If you are born right at the beginning of the sign, let’s say between 0 and 2 degrees, you are in for a wild, wild ride. Your life is about to turn topsy turvy, and you just have to roll with the punches, Taurus. Resisting will only create more stress for you, and this is your time to embrace the new, as scary as that is. A lot of this might simmer under the surface, and you could be feeling the need to just withdraw and shut down for a while. It’s a very good time to reflect and meditate on the way forward, but try not to get all caught up in a mental tangle. Financial matters are of great importance as well, but try not to let them get you down too much, and work with the restrictions – limiting your usual indulgences might help a lot this month.

Gemini

Happy Happy birthday Gemini! It’s your time to take centre stage and celebrate YOU. You’re shining this month and you will enjoy the attention, even though there might be a part of you that is also wanting to just hide away and be alone for a change. You’re keeping more thoughts to yourself more than usual, and that is perfectly okay – perhaps taking some time to reflect on the year past is exactly what you need. Don’t waste too much time on too many inconsistent or negative thoughts and try to compartmentalize them, as things might get a little scattered. There might be an incongruency between head and heart this month, and this might reflect in the way that you communicate to the people around you, so keep a good eye on that.  What you will have is a steady maturity and wisdom in the words that you speak, for once you will feel quite grounded and that will reflect in your energy.

Cancer

Financial situations will make you feel pulled in two different directions this month, Cancer. On one hand, you will want your home comforts around you, nice things and to cook and eat well. On the other hand, you could be dealing with debt, specifically debt you share with a partner and this might drive a wedge between you – walls could go up which feels difficult or painful and the trick is to find a place in the middle where you are both responsible in the relationship as well as affectionate, playful and pleasure seeking. There are ways, and perhaps that will just ask for more frugality mixed with creativity. Don’t let money get your worth down, Cancer, it is, after all, only money. 

Leo

This can be a lovely month for getting out an about Leo, and you’ll feel an emotional pull to explore your surroundings, connect with you community and generally enjoy  trips away. You’re feeling more in your heart than in your head, and people will respond to that – you could be more magnetic than usual. This promises to be a very social time for you, and you could feel warmed by the love of your friends and allies, so keep them close by. Let your emotions guide the way and try not to over rationalize everything, because your heart will keep telling you in which direction to go. Whether you are connecting with people face to face, or via social media, either way promises a lot of joy for you now. There can also be a passionate energy in your romantic relationships which you can make the most of.  

Virgo

This is a grounding month for you, Virgo. You’ll likely be feeling quite  settled and wanting to be in your home space as much as you can, and your thought processes will slow down considerably because of that – which is a very good thing for your eagerly analytical mind. You might even be thinking of putting roots down abroad, so just as long as the ideas are around where to settle, you are on the right track. Slow, methodical planning is the name of the game, and as enthusiastic as you might feel, try not to rush ahead. Pace your words and your actions will follow. Your mind is also on love right now, and you have the opportunity to talk to your lover in a way that is mature, considered and sensible – it’s as if the words that come out of your mouth this month are inspired by a deeper, inner wisdom. Take time to structure your creative energy and keep at it, as that will bring rewards.  

Libra

This is going to be a very, very pleasurable and fun month for you Libra. It’s time to take any creative energy you have and put it into motion, and if you have kids, the energy between you can be very sweet indeed. Home is where the heart is and you’ll be feeling very sentimental. The only difficult area is career – your relationships with authority can be taking strain, and you’ll have to find a middle ground in which you stop pleasing everyone around you, yet still maintain those good relations. This will apply to your family relationships as well, so tread lightly and let the love in. It might be hard to see that the ones around you, love you this month, so be open to it. Don’t build those walls, Libra, it’s not like you.

Scorpio

You’re on a winning streak Scorpio, with Jupiter traversing your sign and helping you get all these lovey opportunities for growth and expansion, abundance and luck. It’s a yearlong trend, so make the most of it! You could be swimming in work this month, but you will probably find it mostly enjoyable – just don’t go to excess whether it’s working or playing too hard to balance things out. Home life might be a bit tricky, and you could encounter some conflict at your very doorstep – your challenge will be to be assertive whilst still presenting emotional authenticity and harmony, and not shutting down your desire for affection in order to assert yourself, or visa versa – being too soft can also destroy that desire to assert oneself. Your ruler, Mars is in his “shadow” phase, so you could already be feeling a touch frustrated. Take a deep breath and do your slow, calculated thing – don’t rush into anything.

Sagittarius

Relationships are on your mind this month, Sagittarius, and you’ll be taking a close look at the ones you love in a more critical way. Much of this reflection will be done behind closed doors, and I would suggest taking some time out away with your special other or best friend and enjoy a bit of an adventure. Don’t overthink it, and don’t try and cram more than you can into one period. As enthusiastic as you may feel, just do one thing at a time – being a fairly chaotic sign, you do tend to juggle a lot of balls and this month can see you dropping a few of them. This can be a month where there could be a touch of escapism, so take it easy, you could cause more of an emotional rollercoaster than you’d ideally like.

Capricorn

This feels like a very serious month in terms of your personal outlook as well as money, Capricorn. You are normally a very serious kind of guy or girl, and your general outlook is very level headed and grounded. But Capricorn, please do let your hair down just a little. We know Saturn is in your sign, and that it’s time for you to take even more responsibility for your goals and dreams, but make time for play, too. Lighten up a touch and life can get that much brighter. If you are dealing with debt, rather try and create a step by step plan for tackling it, rather than becoming somber and depressive – you can do this, and being such a responsible person, you have all the tools at your disposal to get back on track. You might be learning some big lessons in financial sharing, intimacy and being vulnerable with others – don’t shut down, let yourself open up and shine!  

Aquarius

You’re a natural teacher. Aquarius, but you’re also a wonderful student – you are born to take in information and share it, and this month sees you extremely driven for even more knowledge – and it might be of the spiritual kind. You might alternatively go back to school, take a course or a trip; as long as you are expanding your awareness and your mind, you will be happy. Be careful of coming across as overly aggressive in your opinions, as this can land you in hot water and try not to control the group – whether it is a social group or a study group. You can come across as a touch pushy this month with your ideals and what YOU believe in, which might fail to take into account other’s beliefs. Inwardly, you could be feeling very insecure when it comes to love and relationships, and it might cause you to hide your insecurity and suffering – try and face the fears and take your insecurities under control.

Pisces

What do you want to do, Pisces? What do you feel called to? How do you want to be seen in the world? These are all questions that you will face this month, and you might feel a touch lost, or that things have slowed down with your ruler Jupiter retrograde for a while. Use this time to dream and imagine, and go with the flow – that is what you are best at, after all. The chances are that you’ll have plenty of work on your hands that you do enjoy – but there is still the question of whether to not this is your true vocation. With Neptune travelling in your sign for a long, long time, you are opening up to much more intuition and flow, which will set you on the right path, if you allow it. Don’t overthink anything – rather feel instead – as overthinking can cause you to waste too much valuable time.
