The New Moon in Virgo arrives on September 17th 01.00 pm CEST at 24 degrees Virgo. The ruler of the New Moon is Mercury. On the moment the New Moon arrives Mercury is at 17 degrees and 26 minutes in Libra. At that moment Jupiter is at 17 degrees and 26 minutes in Capricorn. Mercury exactly squares Jupiter on the moment of the New Moon. This makes this New Moon a threshold. Into what, you might ask?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
Last week Venus stationed retrograde. Saturn stationed retrograde. Jupiter stationed retrograde. The asteroid Pallas also stationed retrograde. Mars moved into Pisces. Mercury is in Gemini. In other words: a lot of noteworthy transits last week! I wrote about them in the last ‘Moon article and forecast’ (read here). The most noticeable thing about these transits is that with Mars and Mercury moving from fixed signs into mutable signs, we find there is movement now where certain things were stuck. Communication has gotten a boost. There is also more space for actions being driven by instinct and passion. On the other hand: the areas in life that Saturn, Jupiter and Venus rule are slowed down now and ask for introspection. Reflection on relationships, love and connections (Venus), life philosophy and healing practices (Jupiter) and duties, responsibilities and karma (Saturn).Continue
Conjunct Uranus, on Thursday the 23rd 04.25 am CEST there is the New Moon in Taurus (for some it will be on Wednesday the 22nd, depending on where you are on Earth). This for sure is an interesting New Moon. Uranus is the big revolutionary. The planet of upheavels and change. Taurus is a fixed earth sign. She is known for her stability. She is known to be grounded. She knows what she wants and what she likes. When the bull has made up her mind, she sticks with it.
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
