The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.
The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio.
Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries.
Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better.
Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self.
Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.

Phew! that’s been a wild ride!
Eclipses come in groups, every 6 months, eclipses happen in the same signs for roughly 2 years. The first eclipse in Leo happened in February 2017, the last will be January 2019. So you will be wrapping up this Leo themed season of eclipse then, what has the Lion been showing you?
As you know Eclipses shake or shape the path you are on, to me the eclipse are the universe way of shaking, stepping in or stepping you up to get you back on track or on purpose. It’s a helping hand when you are losing your way, of course it’s not easy, as it’s sometimes a bit of a surprise.
It’s in the theme of Leo, this is where all of the action or path forward is in.
Leo – attraction, attention, purpose or passion, pride or proud. It’s a time to step into leadership in your life, to look forward with a strength, courage and heart of Lion King. The Leo eclipses over the last year or so, is showing, asking you to be brave, to find that confidence within to conquer your fears and to come out from behind the shadow of the old self that has lacked the confidence to shine, to be who you really are and to show off the gifts that lay within you. The light is shining here.
Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury Rx, illuminating some information, communication, thoughts or thinking about what Mercury is going back over in some area of life. It’s still all up in the air and the information may still be not ready to settle. Still some uncertainty perhaps. Lots of thinking and going over going on here. Mercury is the point in the Yod, talking to God.
The Yod (finger of God) – between Mercury, Pluto and Neptune, a higher purpose, path or way is involved here. Pluto (power and transformation), Neptune, the mystic, dream, a pull towards a dream, may help you to get what you want. Mercury is the point, talking to God, with the adjustment to make it happen.
Mercury square Jupiter, your might have big plans or thoughts that you want to take far, (or something is or was taken to far) you want to broaden your horizons. Jupiter can be expansive energy, likes to exaggerate. Try not to be too over the top. This is where you have to not let the Leo ego or false confidence take over, a higher purpose is at play here. **Jupiter trines Neptune 19th, the plans or ideas that you want, if in alignment with your higher plan or purpose you will be able to take this further.**
Eclipses, set the way, correct the course, an element of trust, faith, and letting go and handing over plays a very big part. Best approach is to go with it. You will see what the end result is in 2019 when the Leo season of eclipses are over.
Like always look at your own birth chart to see where all of this is happening.
June starts off emotional, coming off a full moon in Sagittarius, it feels like the push-off from the side, allowing your emotions to drift you out, it’s uncomfortable, feels unstable. It will take a whole lot of faith and trust not only in yourself and your skills, talents and gifts, in others and the cosmos too.
Venus + Jupiter + Neptune Grand Trine – June 1st & 2nd
Sun conjunct Mercury – 6th
Mercury enters Cancer – 13th
New moon in Gemini – 14th
Venus enters Leo – 14th
Neptune Rx – 19th
Sun enters Cancer + Solstice – 21st
Mars Rx – 27th
Full moon in Capricorn – 28th
Mercury enters Leo – 29th
Another month of twist and turns and roundabouts.
Neptune and Mars both go Rx, adds to the other planets also Rx, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter. You get a pull back and slow or slowing down feeling. Which may not be so bad as you gotta catch up with yourself and check in with all that has been happening.
Of course the Sun changes signs and enters Cancer + Solstice time, new moon and full moon to set intentions and brings culmination and release.
Mercury the planet of communication and information is moving quickly through the signs, life happens quickly.
Mercury enters Leo by months end, it’s about true self-expression, Mercury goes Rx in July and Eclipses are coming. Best to take the time at the end of month for some reflection and tuning in, tapping into the internal and external changes that have taken place.
Ending, beginnings and all of the damn things in between.
“In the end, it all begins” ― Saji Ijiyemi
Full moon is square to north and south nodes + sextile to Saturn.
The layers that you have build around you, disintegrate, the past that you were buried under slowing falls away under the shadow and light of this full moon.
The energy is high, emotions are intense, the square puts you in a crisis mode, you want to stay in the stable, secure place, that your kinda comfy in. But the old is worn out and stale/stagnate, it no longer brings passion. To leave the old behind is scary, to face the new is unknown, this makes you feel uncomfortable and unsure. Brings in the fear.
Deep inside you want passion, connection, your spirit to feel challenged and alive. you want an authentic feeling, presence and essence to shine from you. To hang on is hard, to not let go is way harder. Bring peace to your heart, seek inside for the answers.
Allow what your deep emotions are telling you to do, it’s time to cross over. To let the shadows, the pain dissolve and come into the light.
Saturn/moon meet up with a harmonious sextile to help you to cross, a gentle nudge, push for your success. This does help with some nourishment, nature, comfort and security. They will also help crystallize the changes from the past that you are making. You have a good chance of success, a positive change.
Go steady, be determined, be sure. Trust the process, feel empowered and follow your heart to transformation and healing.
New Moon in Aries, 16th @11:57 am, conjunct Uranus.
Mercury Rx slowed you down, frustrated the hell out of you, now you have some new information, insight, realizations about all of that and you are ready for the new, filled with energy and enthusiasm/drive for the next step or action you take. Even though you may still be feeling vulnerable and know that a touch of courage is needed.
- Keep in mind that Mercury squares Saturn(26th), don’t go rushing to far ahead full of enthusiasm or be too impulsive as Saturn will put the brakes on. You want to come out of the gate sure and steady, not wobbly.
Being conjunct Uranus, for the last time in Aries as Uranus enters Taurus in May. Being the last, you are wrapping up this 7-8 year journey, what surprises, breakdowns/breakthroughs did you endure. Uranus, destabilizes situations that are not strong enough to withstand the volt it brings. Hopefully you have found some insight and truth to you(identity/Aries) and how you work in this life.
Uranus brings it’s on style and unique edge to this New Moon. What’s Uranus? independence, individuation, takes us out of the comfort zone, future plans, goal, visions, opens you up for change and trying something new. Uranus amps up the energy here, gives the Aries Moon/Sun the push to go for the new.
Aries is all about you, what action or direction do you want to take now, what areas of life do you want to start over again with, bring in a new vibe for the year ahead as Aries is the beginning of the zodiac year, it starts now.
Start of with using this high energy for a positive start for change in your life.
Set your intentions, write them out, get clear in your head about the direction or focus you want the year ahead to be. What did the Mercury Rx tell you or show you, part of the information or awakening to help you out.
But most of all how do YOU want to be in the year ahead?

NEW MOON in CAPRICORN, 17th @12:16 pm (aest)
This moon conjunct VENUS, sextiles MARS, squares URANUS
New Moon in Capricorn, there is work to be done, the climb starts now in building the life you want. It’s important that you have a plan/goal, purpose for all that you are doing, as the work and hard effort will pay off in the long run. Going steadily up the mountain is the story that you are working on for the next few years, Saturn and Pluto in particular will help, support you in this journey. Be ambitious, have a goal, believe that you can succeed in your plan, don’t procrastinate, do not waste this time. As with all Capricorn ways, be realistic, honest, logical, practical, go slow and steady, be sure.
Being close to Venus, it involves love, money, relationship, values and self-esteem, new beginnings in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows what she wants, hopefully you have worked that out too, with all of the Capricorn energy around encouraging you to make some long-term commitments for the building of the new you. If not get to it, New Moon start thinking about what it is you want for the next few years. Venus in Capricorn believes she can achieve and succeed. She likes to keep things real.
Mars lends a hand by taking action, gives you direction, emotionally motivates you to go for it.
Mars trine Chiron, healing may come about with the action or direction you take. Be caring and compassionate during this time, you may find that Venus themes will be part of the healing process for you, which may have long-term effects.
Uranus squares Moon, brings in a Sparky bold move, might be quick, unexpected ways of getting what you want to the Venus themes, adds a little bit of a surprise to the new moon vibe.
Keep in mind that the eclipses are coming, this brings in a little fate and destiny, keep an open mind, be flexiable.
Plant the seed deep into the earth sign of Capricorn, to give structure and form to your goals/plans, to give you strength and a strong foundation in the physical world.
Manifestation can happen and will happen, be committed, stay focused, keep it real, have faith in the journey.
You know when these two connect things happen, Jupiter and Pluto are meeting up today for the first of three in 2018. The good is that it’s a sextile a harmonious aspect.
This brings in a chance or opportunity for growth, to move on. Great transformation can happen, go with the flow, go with the changes that opportunity brings you. Supports you in moving on, makes it easier for you to go and get what you want.
It’s the dynamic duo at work, moves are being made in co-operative ways for success, growth and personal power. It can feel like life/people/situations are pulling you out of yourself or comfort zones to go further into areas you want and long to go. Be pulled out of your old life and ways, go willingly, don’t kick and scream. Evolving up is the name of the game, have faith, be ambitious. You’ve got that plan, gaol, let this combo help you out during 2018, as they will shine the way for you.
Keep in mind, Jupiter is in Scorpio, plowing to the depth of some unconsciousness within and bringing it to consciousness, this may cause some chaos, intense emotions, fear even, but the good of this is for the more to come to you. You can certainly feel the challenge/struggle of the new calling you and some emotions will be raw, Pluto/Scorpio brings all of that stuff out, and when dealt with, turn it into an empowered you. That’s the gold!
Water and earth time to build, this sextile will help you along, Scorpio and Capricorn, keep it all real and authentic, that’s the only way to go.
Go check out your birth chart and see where all of this is happening for you.
*Jupiter sextile Pluto dates*
16th January 2018 – 14th April, 2018 – 12th September, 2018
SUN conjunct PLUTO!
Sun meets up with Pluto, planet of transformation, rebirth and regeneration. Sometimes with Pluto things have to be removed or die off, for true growth to happen and the Sun, your identity, purpose, vitality, will is shining the light on the areas that may need to go. And that’s not easy, never is, but after dealing with Pluto for many, many years, I have learnt that if it has to go for your soul’s growth it really does have to go. Take care and work with compassion/love when dealing with all of the issues that are coming up for you. Moon in Libra while all this is happening, find your center, be balanced, be fair and honest.
There is more to come your way and you need to make the room for this.
VENUS conjunct Pluto/Sun, relationship, money, love, self-care, values, self-esteem will be playing apart in the conjunction between the three. If it does not fit, feel right, make you feel good and true within yourself, this little planetary meet up will help you to start sorting it out. What is not true for you may be sacrificed off, so something else more in alignment with your truth can come in. Pay attention to all that is happening around you right now and as you move towards the New Moon also in Capricorn, 17th @12:16:37 pm.
Death and dying of an old way, transformation can happen, all in Capricorn, building and working on a stronger, stable, secure, more empowered you. And this goes without saying really, if you are not solid, sure within yourself, you can not build on to that ground or place, take away the rubble or foundation that is unsteady, unstable, unsure, before you start to build on solid ground. Capricorn is sure, being a master builder and is all about manifestation, so build strong, have strength within and without. Take this all very serious, Sun and Pluto are the soul calling, in the stable, secure sign of Capricorn he means to get the job done, not the time to mess around, no time for the BS. Be mature, responsible, committed, work from wisdom and truth always. You know the saying the truth will set you free.
Be your truth and be real. What’s false will fall away, and you will see, that’s the Pluto way.
Mars/Jupiter in Scorpio are in harmonies aspect to the hot 3, urging you on, motivating you with deep truth, strong emotions, for rebirth and change. Action, energy, passion and courage, new growth and abundance for more.
Mercury will join the Capricorn party, on 11th, thinking deeper about life, speaking about it, once out, it can manifest.
Venus and Sun meet up again, last time was, March 24-25th 2017 in Aries, Venus was Rx. What was started back then comes to a culmination point, being in Aries you may have started a new phase or beginning of, love, self love, money, relationship, self-esteem and values plus Sun, identity, vitality and purpose. You found faith, strength and courage in Aries.
Now in Capricorn, it’s manifesting or has been, is forming a structure, it’s becoming solid for you, Capricorn can and may bring limits, rules and work to all of these things. It can also bring in stability and longevity to Venus and Sun themes.
They do meet up again 27th Oct, 2018 when Venus is Rx in Scorpio, another layer is added and more to come.
MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.
Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.
