In the midst of an intense battle between the malefics Mars and Saturn, there’s an interesting Full Moon that has the capability to provide us with insights and even spiritual ecstasy. For that to happen, we will need to slow down in order to not only deeply feel, but also communicate that what stirs up our emotional waters. This Full Moon isn’t necessarily a comfortable one, but has the potential to bring transformation and transcendence.Continue
The second New Moon in Cancer of 2020. It’s rare that a sign gets two New Moons in one year. I think it’s lovely that Cancer get’s two New Moons this year. First of all, the Moon is the ruler of Cancer. She’s at home in this sign. Second, the previous New Moon in Cancer was a Solar eclipse. So it’s nice to also have a regular New Moon in Cancer.
The New Moon arrives on July 20th 7.33 pm CEST and will be at 28 degrees Cancer. Even though it’s a regular New Moon, it’s not necessarily a gentle one. The Moon is opposite of ‘everything 2020 shit in Capricorn’ (read Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter and Pallas Athena retrograde in Capricorn). The New Moon is also squared by sign by Mars in Aries. Which means the Goddess has some cosmic energies to digest.Continue
Sweethearts! Finally the horoscopes for the mutable rising signs are here! Sorry that I’ve kept you waiting for so long. When Mercury stationed direct I finally got some flow in my writing again. Though I’ve also been distracted by hair issues which caused some delays. This lady is going blonde again, which is easier said than done; but I miss my natural colour. When I was younger I used to dye my hair regularly. In the past eight years or so I haven’t. I just kept my natural blonde colour and loved it. But then this April Uranus touched my ascendant while Venus just entered her pre retrograde shadow period and I decided to throw some red dye in my hair. An act of rebellion and empowerment. At that moment I already knew I would regret it. And I do regret now. On the other hand. I want to live an exciting life and thus I rather make mistakes and fail than live a safe and boring life. Ah well I’m talking about hair here, it’s a first world problem! And things change anyway. So will my hair. One day it will be grey. And I will love it. All things change. Which you mutable signs know all too well. Everything in life changes. Nothing stays the same. And life becomes a lot easier when we can go with that flow. The art of letting go, while at the same time daring to ride the waves. The mutable signs have a gift for flexibility that I find inspiring. Of course it depends a lot on other placements in your personal chart whether you identify with that flexibility. But there is a part of you that definitely seeks or brings changes in life. Dear mutable rising signs, here are your horoscopes for the second half of 2020. (The horoscopes for the other signs can be found in the previous two articles.)Continue
The first half of 2020 was certainly interesting, I think for all of us. Apocalypse and all… What to expect for the second half? I wrote down some insights on what’s to come for humankind in general in the article on the last Full Moon (click to read). I also wanted to share horoscopes for the different signs. These horoscopes turned out to be quite large. And I only touch on a few transits. So these horoscopes are still incredibly general (not to mention that I can’t give specifics because that depends on the individual birth chart). Anyway, I share the horoscopes in groups. Here are the horoscopes for those of you with the ascendant in a fixed sign: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. (You can find the horoscopes for the cardinal rising signs in the previous article. I will publish the horoscopes for the mutable signs soon.)
In the horoscopes for the fixed signs I zoom in on the Uranus in Taurus transit. Which also means that your horoscopes are actually not that much about the second half of 2020 per se; a lot of what you read below holds value for a bigger time period. For some it may resonate a lot, based on the experiences you have had in the past two years. For some it will unfold in the future. Because I’m talking about a transit that lasts from 2018-2026 and you won’t notice its effects everyday over this whole period (luckily). Anyway, this transit is all about breaking free and revolutionising yourself! All the fixed signs have a chance to do that. You guys are actually forced to do it. Breaking free of chains seems exciting huh? Revolutionising yourself sounds awesome. In reality it’s often terrifying. So often we stay in our chains out of fear and sometimes even out of comfort. So often we come to love our chains. Chains can provide stability and safety. But, they won’t let you grow and develop yourself. They hold you back from chasing your dreams, even if you still have no idea what those dreams are. Uranus is trying to break you free from the chains, without your permission. To stand free, open and vulnerable in the world is scary. But goddamn there is so much potential too. Ok, enough introduction. More specifics in the horoscopes.Continue
The astrology of 2020 sucks. It just sucks. We see it reflected in the world: pandemic and other crap. The world is a mess. As above so below. The transits of the luminaries and planets throughout 2020 are not just intense, they are destructive and purge all toxicities out of the repressed unconscious trauma and sadism of humankind. This needs to bring transformation, healing, revolution and growth. But it will take a while until we get there. Throughout 2020 we get to face our global karma. In 2021 the healing starts. As I’ve repeatedly stated: the malefic planets are strong throughout this year and in conflict with each other, while the benefic planets are either as weak as they can be (Jupiter) or in okay-ish and with moments weakened state (Venus). We don’t just see the crap astrology reflected in what’s happening in the world. It’s also reflected in our personal lives. The way in which the transits in 2020 impact you, however, depends on your personal chart. It’s not that nothing good happens in 2020. It’s just an intense and quite difficult year for the most of us.Continue
Okaaaay there is lots to talk about. Because there is a shit load of planets that’s about to station retrograde. As usual I’ll go through the major transits between now and the next Moon article (which is on the New Moon in Gemini). So there is a lot to write about. But first, let’s talk about the Full Moon in Scorpio. And, as a gift, I will share a ritual for the Full Moon in Scorpio.Continue
On April third Venus moves into Gemini. For the past month Venus has been transiting through Taurus. Taurus is one of the two signs that is ruled by Venus. So in the past month Venus has been feeling at home and that made her strong and confident. It was the best period of Venus for all 2020, in terms of Venus feeling powerful. And as yours truly is a Taurus rising girl and needs the support of Venus, she’s grieving a bit now that the Goddess is moving into her neighbors home. Does this mean that Aphrodite has done her best for work 2020 and has no more love to give? Not at all!Continue
On March 22nd Saturn moves from Capricorn into Aquarius. Saturn is the most outer planet visible to our naked eye. Saturn takes about twenty nine years to travel through all twelve signs of the zodiac and travels through every sign for about two and a half years.
So with Saturn moving from Capricorn into Aquarius we will enter a whole new chapter of our lives, so to speak. However, because a retrograde period is coming up for Saturn, he switches signs a couple of times this year. This makes the ‘overall transit’ quite interesting. Saturn will be in Aquarius for about three months from March 22nd to July. Saturn stations retrograde in May, moves back into Capricorn in the start of July, starts moving direct again at the end of September and enters Aquarius again halfway through December.
This means that we get a taste of what Saturn in Aquarius brings for about three months: March 22nd till July 2nd. Then we go back to ‘what we know’ (the energy of Saturn in Capricorn that we have had for the last years). And on the 17th of December we enter our new chapter definitively with no way back; but knowing a bit what to expect because we had a taste of it. Saturn will stay in Aquarius until the beginning of March 2023.Continue
