On 24 January 2016 there is a Full Moon at 01:45 GMT at 03°29′ Leo. This Full Moon in Leo occurs in the early hours of the morning in the UK, on the same day Mercury slows down to station at 14° Capricorn just before 9pm GMT.

Though slightly wide, when the luminaries are involved a wider orb of […]

The Deep Desire For Change On January 10th 2016 at 10:01am GMT, a New Moon occurs at 19° degrees Capricorn and is part of the first Mercury Retrograde of 2016.

Concluding with a conjunction to Pluto at 14° Capricorn, Mercury will revisit the point he entered pre-shadow on 20th December 2015. The involvement of Uranus and Pluto provoke discussion about stagnant ideologies, antiquated systems and corruption in once respected governing bodies. On a personal level, friendships, the social group and those with a common purpose will be highlighted. If Mercury aspects any of your natal […]
Venus has reached a point in her cycle where she continues to move forward in her orbit around the Sun but approaches her closest orbital point to Earth. This period is known as ‘retrograde’ and during this time, appears to move backwards in the sky. During her cycle around the sun, Venus moves approximately one degree a day, with the retrograde period lasting about 6 weeks (no more than 43 days at a time). Some years she doesn’t retrograde at all. During retrograde, Venus’ presence is more pronounced in […]
