Refinery 27 horoscope february 2020
What's changed and what hasn't? The breakdown of the global order continues, but more on that in a comprehensive column to come. Brexit may be paralysing British political progress. Across the Atlantic they don't need a Brexit. They have Donald Trump. Just prior to Christmas, the warrior planet Mars simultaneously squared Trump's Sun and Moon and he went on and off the warpath. Trump announced the US military exit from Syria, although he's pulling back the timelines now.
That put him on a crash course with his Defense Secretary, General James Mattis, who promptly tended his resignation for February, letting the world know precisely how he felt about Trump's military idea. Trump advanced the Mattis resignation timing to New Years Day. This was no coincidence, astrologically speaking. Mars represents the military and had been squaring Trump's Sun and Moon. Here were two of his once highly touted appointments taking permanent leave. And also no coincidence that they were both sworn in on the same day, within minutes of each other.
That day, January 20 , was also Trump's inauguration. A swearing in is the beginning of an enterprise. A horoscope constructed for that exact moment will show the potential of that enterprise, subject to future further planetary movements. Mars first return to that position was December 23 As it squared Trump's Sun and Moon. Get the picture! I think this also spells upcoming trouble for the President, as he was sworn in on the same day at noon.
But more on that later. Inauguration charts work. Nowhere was a swearing in chart more susceptible to failure than January 22 at The horoscope of that moment displayed dissipating Neptune as the most elevated planet. Neptune was closely conjunct the administrative Midheaven. Somehow this wasn't going to work out the way it was planned. That swearing in chart would get no peace. By mid February Mike Flynn was the first member of the administration to be eclipsed.
Neptune is the surreal shimmering shape shifter and sometimes the elusive and escapist disappearing act. Neptune excels in the realms of imagination and ambiguity yet is all at sea in the material world of objective fact and measurable reality. Team Trump, sworn in that fateful day, would gradually and mysteriously dissolve. It didn't take long for the then new Communications Director, Sean Spicer, to exhibit Neptune's illusory qualities. That unbelievable claim contradicted the photographic evidence, clearly showing less than half the numbers of Barack Obama's first swearing in.
Spicer soon became an instant hit with comedians nationwide for his ill fitting suits and improbable spin, resigning exactly five months later. Reince Priebus left a week and a half later on July 31 becoming the shortest serving initial Chief of Staff in US history. Bannon also had run ins with Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner.
Although Kushner played a critical role in Trump's foreign policy, encouraging the US Embassy move to Jerusalem and association with Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, his influence too is fading. More of the Neptune swearing in team followed. Trump's trusted confidante, Communications Director Hope Hicks, would resign after admitting to 'telling white lies for the President'.
She later publicly turned on Trump. White House Staff Secretary, Rob Porter, resigned after two former wives accused him of domestic abuse. The one thing they all had in common was being sworn in under a dubious chart. One of the few survivors, Kelly Anne Conway, is now well know for her 'alternative facts' — her credibility shrouded in a Neptune fog of confusion.
As the Sun also represent the leader, in this case the President, he is also feeling the karmic catch up of Saturn. Trump and Congress are caught in a Saturn bind, over the very Saturnian object of a wall. The ringed planet is known as the boundary rider. It's a perfect symbolic scenario.
Click here for a larger image. But Saturn also represents judgement and the 'establishment'. The Democrats having gained control of Congress can curtail the Leader. And that looks on the cards as Saturn is to oppose the Sun on multiple occasions in I will look into this more with individuals charts in subsequent columns but buckle up for the rough ride ahead.
Note too, that the following Lunar Eclipse, the first of three Supermoons, due from January 21, will occur at 00LEO51 - precisely opposite the degree of the Trump inauguration chart. Considering that two of the steady hands of a chaotic administration, Mattis and Kelly both sworn in later that same day have also departed, Trump has to be looking vulnerable.
The latter part of January, I expect to pour petrol on this polarity of government and leadership. Accountable Saturn is bringing the lessons to bear of lack of responsibility from the past two years. And if you think January looks like fun, just wait until late March — the third week in particular. Welcome to the New Year of — we're watching history unfolding.
And fast! NOV Justice must be served but this is going to be one hell of a shoot-out. Sagittarius is Latin for archer, and the Sagittarii is what the Roman legions termed their horseback bowmen. Jupiter, also known as Jove, the Roman god of justice rules Sagittarius. When Jupiter aligns with Sagittarius, their thunderbolts come to earth, justice becomes front-page news, and exaggerated ideologies can elevate commoners to kings. In a month where the Mueller investigation is expected to go reach a climax, where Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein could be walking on thin ice, where Trump may face the music and polarised mid-terms divide the US, and where the Khashoggi murder still looms large internationally, it's auspicious that Jupiter returns to Sagittarius.
The missionary zeal of this astro-signature was evident in Maximilian Robespierre the quintessential figure of the French Revolution. Both born with Jupiter in Sag. Yeats This next section examines the more recent last century occurrences of Jupiter in Sagittarius, coupled with notable events and trends. And in the USA J. Edgar Hoover was appointed head of the FBI. When Jupiter next returned to the sign of the archer, in , Adolf Hitler would be leading an emerging industrial giant, Germany, then hosting the Olympic Games.
The political polarity of Europe played out in the Spanish Civil War with the Communists and Fascists supplying assistance to the warring parties. In the Middle East the battle between Jewish settlers and nationalists began in earnest with the Arab Revolt. And in the midst of these extremities US activist Abbie Hoffman was born. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.
By the time Jupiter returned to home base in October the Cold War was beginning. The divisions were now mirrored in Berlin itself. A Russian blockade of surface transport led to Allied food drops, and the dissection of the German capital. The State of Israel was born with powerful allied support against fierce Arab resistance, and the Palestinian exodus began. All of these countries predominate world news today, and possibly moreso over the year ahead.
A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. Truman Capote. But a planned Paris summit between President Eisenhower and Khrushchev was literally shot out of the skies along with a US U2 spy plane over Russian airspace. Keeps his humour but has seen his share of courtrooms too. Wisdom is oft times nearer when we stoop than when we soar. William Wordsworth. Nothing exceeds like excess. Big budgetary blowouts caused by wasteful defence spending, encouraged a temporary meltdown of the Cold War. The superpowers were back to the negotiating tables.
The division between Israel and Palestine dramatically deteriorated with terrorists executing 25 people at Tel Aviv airport and following up with the Munich Olympic massacre where 9 Israeli hostages were killed. Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage which we did not take, towards the door we never opened Into the rose-garden. Polarity was back on the table. Often we have no time for our friends but all the time in the world for our enemies.
Leon Uris. This entire period coincided with ferocious with separatist state. Chechen gunmen took 1, people hostage in a hospital. Terrorism was back with a bang. The US experienced its worst homeland terrorist attack to date, with the Oklahoma City bombing. Thousands of commuters on five Tokyo subway trains were simultaneously gassed by the crazed Japanese religious cult, called Aum Supreme Truth, Jupiter in Sagittarius zeal.
Each repetition of Jupiter through Sagittarius produces violent rebellions at perceived injustices, often with a charismatic leader predominant. The last time Jupiter crossed this way was twelve years ago. Iraq was the country experiencing the greatest division, with a marked increase in insurgency, leading to a US troop surge.
Neighbouring Iran held Royal Navy personnel prisoner for sailing in disputed waters. Does that last one give a clue to the upcoming US mid-term elections. I think so. Looking at the President's chart for that event shows Mars exactly squaring his birth Midheaven, whilst the SP Mars also hard angles to the same Midheaven. He's in 'battle mode' and something is fueling his anger.
He has a fight on his hands. Add to that, the transit of Jupiter will square his Progressed Sun by November 17 and transiting Mars will oppose his progressed Sun the following day. The transits exacerbate the progressions and it's centered Jupiter, the planet of judicial matters. When you add that to the fact that Jupiter will transit in opposition to the President's birth Sun on March 11, May 11 and October 30 , it makes for an interesting year of legalese.
Jupiter in Sagittarius. Certainly no time for booking a holiday at the OK Corral - that's for sure. More like the Constitutional Crisis on the doorstep. And to round out on a positive. The last time Jupiter moved through Sagittarius, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change established that man made fossil fuels were a major contributor of climate change.
Now, at the Jupiter return, a group of activists have been given the all clear to take government inactivity on this tragedy to the Supreme Court. Perhaps that's really the most important showdown of all for humanity's future. OCT It was 9 am on June 8 in Blair House. It's used to accomodate visiting heads of state and is directly across the road from the White House. Their signatures would rescue western capitalism.
And pull the US economy out of a recession, with unemployment nearing ten per cent. The agreement would also lead to oil currency wars, a Middle East meltdown and a gradual spread of global terror. The agreement between the US and the Saudis established two joint commissions. One devoted to economic cooperation and the other to supply Saudi Arabia's military requirements.
The word oil was never mentioned. But it was really all about oil. This was the birth of the persuasive political power of the petrodollar. And the war planet of Mars was rising for the signing. Desperate times called for desperate measures. The US unreservedly backed Israel. And one which would forever change the global economy. Saudi Arabia, with the largest oil reserves in the world, reacted to the US intervention with an oil embargo, starting October 19 The embargo would have a devastating effect on western economies across the globe.
The shortage, following the natural law of supply and demand, was a prelude for Arab states quadrupling in the price of oil. The US and it western allies were forced to ration supplies. And the increasing spike was making the Gulf kingdom wealthier than it had ever imagined. By December of '73, the Saudis had covered the national budget for the following three years.
Western capital was flowing into the Middle East at an unprecedented rate. It had the potential to totally shift the balance of power, not only against Israel, but throughout the world. In western nations inflation was running at double digits. Schlesinger, a former Director of the CIA, was advancing the idea of a Middle East invasion to take full control of the oilfields. The risk of that was World War Three. With national budgets in free-fall and global capitalism facing its greatest threat since the Great Depression, there were fears that Italy, France and the UK could be heading for eventual bankruptcy.
And the USSR, with a copious supply of its own oil, could potentially spread the seeds of communism even wider. One month after the historic deal had been signed, on July 9 , at The chief questions concerning that meeting are outlined below, exactly as they appeared on the Chairman's notes. That kind of money would totally tip the power base. It had to be managed. The US objective was to increase the oil supply, reflexively lowering the price.
And to sell oil exclusively in US dollars, which would stabilise it as the global reserve currency and consolidate the US Treasury. Kissinger's offer to the Saudis, was one of national security and military support. The US would supply the latest weaponry technology, aircraft and missiles, plus assist in training the Royal National Guard. The House of Saud would be protected and maintained.
The US would also supply financial advice to diversify the kingdom's economy, plus aid with education and infrastructure projects. Western banks would establish a presence in the Gulf countries. Surplus Arab petrodollars could be invested in US business and financial markets. A co-dependency of clashing cultures was developing and channeling Saudi revenue westward ho. The Sauds and their fellow Gulf fiefdoms, all staunchly anti-communist, were reinvesting much of their monetary reserves in the capitalist west. For the United States, this was a godsend.
Any country that wanted to purchase oil had to first purchase American dollars to enable the transaction. Money is power. When Pluto came to semisquare itself and sesquisquare that Mars, the attacks took place. Click here for larger image. It allowed them to run enormous debt with low interest repayment. The two countries also negotiated a clandestine understanding, involving the Saudis investing in US bonds under exclusive conditions.
It remained top secret for over forty years. Seventy per cent of the Saudis wealth was funneling into the US Treasury. Oil was now a fully fledged political weapon and was being exchanged for the same. The Saudis flooding the world oil markets in and the resultant collapse in the oil price was a major factor in the break up of the Soviet Union, with the Russian economy heavily reliant upon oil revenue. But there was also a price to pay.
This financial co-dependency was pivotal to US global hegemony, economically and militarily. The dollar as the reserve currency allowed the US to place economic sanctions on any nation stepping out of line. When the US imposed sanctions on Russia, following their reclamation of Crimea, the Saudis again flooded the oil markets, sending the Russian economy into a temporary tailspin. It was crippling US sanctions that forced Iraq to decide, on September 25 to abandon the dollar and appeal to the United Nations to conduct their oil transactions in Euros. On October 30 their wish was granted.
Regime change would soon follow. For many political observers, protection of the petrodollar was the real reason for the US sending their military into Iraq. By June 5 , less than two months after the March 19 invasion, Iraq had returned to trading oil in US dollars. Some nations were more resistant. Iran, opened their own oil bourse on the island of Kish with the first transaction taking place at Muammar Gaddafi, proposed a new currency the dinar , when many African nations were dealing also in dollars and francs. But the use of the petrodollar as a political weapon was by now creating its own resistance.
Nigeria, the biggest oil exporter and largest African economy, moved to the Chinese yuan. China has now supplanted the USA as the world's biggest oil buyer. China opened their Shanghai oil exchange opening at 9 am on March 26 This has provided an alternative oil market for futures traders. And if the 'customer is always right' then China will eventually have greater clout in the conditions of oil transactions.
It's one of many incidents - not the least being the terrorist attacks - where US leadership is compromised by this economic co-dependecy. Donald Trump was quick to use the impact of halting a lucrative Saudi arms deal on US jobs, as the first excuse to avoid directly confronting the Saudis. George Bush did it after the attacks, when he chose Iraq and Iran as his axis of evil while leaving Saudi Arabia completely off the list.
In President Obama tried to prevent the relatives of the victims from suing the Saudi government for damages. Obama warned of 'consequences' amidst the Kingdom's threats of selling off US Treasury notes. Recall that when Prince Fahd and Henry Kissinger signed the petrodollar pact, the war planet Mars was rising in Washington. On that day Mars was also at the same position it had held during the attacks. Now in October of the Secondary Progressed Sun of the petrodollar chart has come to meet its Mars.
US economic sanctions against Iran come into full force from November 5. Is this about to spell further fireworks in the Middle East at a time when it is the Saudis who should be answering for another terrorist act? And is the war for the petrodollar escalating on another level? It looks that way. They're the private security company assigned to Iraq and Afghanistan, with government contracts totaling hundreds of millions of dollars.
Trump has toyed with privatising the Afghan War. Nader conveyed that the royals were banking on Trump wining the presidential election. He offered his help in securing a victory. Nader, who was also pitching a plan of destabilisation in Iran, went on to becoming an adviser to the Trump campaign and later, administration. There were valid reasons for the Saudi support of Trump.
The war in Yemen had degenerated into a humanitarian disaster. It was proving an international embarrassment for the weapon enablers — the US and Great Britain. Following the Saudi's indiscriminate bombing of a civilian funeral service, claiming lives, Barack Obama had withdrawn the supply of high precision weapons. Trump overturned the weapons ban on March 9 On May 20, the new President made Saudi Arabia his first international stop. As he landed, the war planet Mars was on the Gemini Midheaven. This was all going to be about war and weaponry.
A big money deal. It only narrowly passed the Senate - 53 to If the country is bad, it's because the ruler is so. Saudi Arabia obviously don't subscribe to that truism. Lately, they appear to find great trouble in subscribing to any kind of truth, obsessed instead with suppressing it. But then With his father suffering from Alzheimer's, the young Prince took control of the army and intelligence forces. He leapfrogged his cousin to be appointed heir to kingdom on the 21st of June Since coming to power Prince Salman has pressured the Palestinian leadership to accept a one sided Middle East peace plan proposed by political novice Jared Kushner, with whom he has cultivated a close friendship.
Salman has cracked down on critics within his own borders and mobilised a coalition of Gulf monarchies against the free press — including the banning of Al-Jazeera — and the attempted isolation of Qatar. He has held the Lebanese Prime Minister captive in Riyadh, forcing him to publicly announce his resignation on November 4 The Prince also summoned his fellow royals to the Carlton Rex in Riyadh, turning it into a virtual prison, and demanding they hand over millions of dollars to the kingdom.
For all of this he received supportive tweets from Donald Trump, who claimed the other royals were fleecing the nation out of tax dollars. The irreconcilable irony being that Trump's tax returns are much harder to find that an Obama birth certificate and Kushner's returns reveal just how little he pays. When their man in the Middle East's dictatorial ways were in need of an image makeover, Prince Salman was given a whistle stop tour of the USA talk shows. He was showcased as a youthful modernist, determined to bring his country into the 21st century.
While needed change is happening, Salman is also centralising power and brutally crushing dissent. Prince Salman's birth chart — he was born August 31 in Riyadh — reveals his Sun in square to 'wild card' Uranus. He has a propensity for unrestrained and 'off the cuff' actions. His Mercury is joined to fiery Mars, with both in a dominating square to responsible Saturn. Meaning that the impulse of Mars wins out and Salman is an assertive and aggressive communicator.
Not surprisingly his Mars is conjunct Trump's Mars. When the Lebanese Prime Minister announced his forced resignation live on Saudi television, officials in Washington and Paris were shocked. This wasn't a planned strategy and the move caught western diplomats off guard. But nothing could prepare them for the brutal murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, in a Saudi Embassy, on Turkish soil. Khahsoggi was recorded entering the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul at precisely He had an appointment to collect papers for an impending marriage.
His fiancee waited outside. A horoscope cast for that moment reveals Saturn rising at the Ascendant and unexpected Uranus exactly at the base of the chart. The Moon opposes Saturn and is at the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto. What happened next was entirely unexpected — at least from Khahsoggi's perspective.
His future had already been decided in the palaces of Riyadh. And had it not been for the evidence gathering of Turkish intelligence, his fate would have remained a mystery. The journalist, who had relocated to the USA, was cruelly mutilated by a Saudi hit team. His Libran birth Sun runs semisquare to the powerbroker Pluto and sesquisquare militant Mars. In essence it points toward one who may walk a maze of dangerous situations. For some that may mean a propensity for martial arts, a military or sporting career.
Khashoggi didn't pursue any of those options. He was an intellectual, a campaigner within his own country for human rights and his connection with military extended to being one of the few journalists who had connections to Osama Bin Laden, during his mujaheddin days. During , the transit of underworld Pluto was regularly squaring Khashoggi's Sun and activating the Mars Pluto configuration.
His Secondary Progressed Sun was closing on a conjunction with restrictive Saturn and his progressed Mars was squaring sudden shock Uranus. It all played out in the most gruesome manner.
The Saudis denied knowledge of the event and propaganda to that effect was screened throughout the kingdom. Meantime, Turkey is holding all the aces and playing the duplicity of Trump and deviousness of Saudi Arabia off a break for all the world to see. The narratives keep shifting with the latest Saudi excuse being that Khashoggi started a fist fight during which he was accidentally killed. That doesn't hold sway with Turkey's evidence of at least fifteen Saudi operatives, many Prince Salman associates, who began arriving from 3.
It has taken the Saudis eighteen days to admit involvement. And it's cruel ling the elaborate PR job that the Trump administration designed for their man in the Middle East. Trump's actions — or inaction — defines his leadership and the international faith in current American standards.
He needs to get it right. Or as the Turkish proverb goes — 'the fish rots from the head down'. Last week rattled Wall St. The experts didn't see it coming. Who didn't place a lot of faith in his colleagues. In fact the date of October 10 was mentioned as the one to watch due to the curious hard aspects of a debilitated and retrograde Venus in Scorpio a sign she doesn't perform as well in economically squaring Mars in Aquarius, coupled with a simultaneous face off, of mercantile Mercury with technological Uranus.
Last Wednesday the 10th, right on planetary time, the Dow shed points, in its largest fall in eight months. The bleeding continued the next day shedding another It pulled back slightly Friday, posting its worst week since March. For starters, I want to revisit markets and planets beginning with some classic historical examples and charts. Another world — another time. It's late spring and the World Expo is taking place in the capital of the Austria-Hungarian Empire. Twenty-six thousand exhibits from around the world. East met West in an exhibition of art, science and culture spread across a hectare parkland in central Vienna.
The main Great Rotunda, designed by Scottish engineers, would attract over seven million visitors. It could have had many more, but for an unexpected reversal. On May 9, the Vienna Stock Exchange crashed, leading to multiple booking cancellations. And the ramifications that would echo right across the globe. On September 18 , a leading US financial firm, Jay Cooke and Company, folded, preceding a string of further bank failures. Within two months fifty five railroad companies had disappeared off the business registry. It was the start of the Long Depression, the worst recession the US had experienced, extending over sixty five months and sending over eighteen thousand businesses into bankruptcy.
It was through studying this crisis — and its planetary significance - that convinced me a similar recession would occur in and the time frames would be strangely similar. It was the day that Bernanke allegedly advised, "If we don't do this, we may not have an economy on Monday. It occurred during a time of triple expansion known as the Second Industrial Revolution. That featured the proliferation of railroads, steam shipping opening of the Suez Canal and the spread of the international telegraph network.
When such technical advances propel economies, trade and speculation boom. There is a frenzied rush to be in on the action. And while he who hesitates is lost seems to be the prevailing maxim, avarice becomes infectious and indeed is the dominant culture of unregulated capitalism. The biggest global meltdown after the 's was the Great Depression of the 's. It too came on the back of technological change during a decade of growing economic inequality and extravagance celebrated as the Roaring Twenties.
Mass media communication, commercial radio networks, talking movies and the birth of international air travel led into the Great Depression. Investment fever was at a peak with the bubble just waiting to burst. Again the outer planetary formations would correlate with the crucial market moves. Contracting Saturn was due to move into a testing square with unstable Uranus in the first quarter of Optimistic Jupiter would also oppose restrictive Saturn by the middle of the year, while also squaring Uranus. By the middle of , Pluto would join Jupiter in opposition to Saturn. All would be in square to Uranus.
Plus Uranus and Pluto would be in a tight hard aspect pattern with Neptune. Getting dizzy? All of the outer planets so aligned, synchronised with the worst economic meltdown of the 20th century. It also correlated with massive social reformation. The Great Depression and its shrinking of international trade, breakdown of treaties and increased nationalistic fervour delivered the perfect conditions for World War Two.
Coming barely twenty years after the First World War, collective intelligence was not part of the equation. Uncertainty and populist leaders, guaranteed it wouldn't be. The 21st century began with a dotcom bubble bursting and a further market jolt with the cataclysm of A world of uncertainty devolved, with accompanying political and religious polarisation ushering the rise of the strong-arm populists trying to turn back time.
The technology of the Internet was revolutionising business, banking, vocations and social networking, much the same way that railroads, telegraphs and electricity did to the 19th century. Or that mass media, movies, celebrity culture, credit cards and commercialisation did for the last one. Dotcom bubbles aside the last meltdown of September came on the back of purely unscrupulous banking practises, predatory lending and mass irresponsibility, that to this day places national economies in deep debt.
Planetary positioning revealed the coming financial storm. I'd written about it in my World Forecast and nominated the appropriate dates. This is why. September was outstanding for several reasons, not the least a Full Moon with erratic Uranus on the 15th, the very day that Lehman Bros declared bankruptcy and the financial world went into meltdown. It had come from a First Quarter Moon squaring Saturn on the 7th and was leading into a three-quarter Moon tightly opposing Pluto by the 22nd.
The Full Moon became the torchlight revelation, casting light on previous cover-ups. There was more in the bigger picture. Something had to give. The North Node was moving through the low of its business cycle in Aquarius. Saturn and Uranus were about to perfect their opposition. And the bubble was showing signs of deflating. Some additional considerations. It's important to look at dates approximately six months removed, as lunations to slow moving outer planets work to a pattern. The fall of a Madison Avenue financial icon, employing 15, people, gave ominous signals.
The New Moon of March 7 was conjunct Uranus and every planet on that day was hard angled to another. Six months later, the Full Moon with Uranus pin pointed September as the crucial month to watch. It certainly delivered. Uranus is the shock planet, prominent at sudden reversals. Even the market crash of October occurred during a lunation cycle that began with a New Moon on Uranus. Factoring in the other outer planets reveals the longer term trend.

Moon into Aries pm. JUN Moon in Aries. Merc into Leo pm. Moon Tau conj Ura and sext Sun. Moon Tau sext Mars Can. Moon into Gem pm. The tensions building in June in the world and for some of us in our personal lives could reach a climax in July. This could be a turbulent month. A solar eclipse on July 2 in Cancer followed by a lunar eclipse on July 16 in Capricorn makes July a time of shifting circumstances that will influence us for the next 3 to 6 months. These eclipses will challenge the USA birth chart very strongly.
USA born July 4, Issues regarding power and control plus economic concerns could occur. The next set of eclipses will be even stronger: A solar eclipse on Dec 26, in Capricorn and a lunar eclipse in Cancer on Jan 10, What happens around the July eclipses will be connected to the eclipses in Dec and Jan Jul 1 : Enthusiasm and a fun loving attitude make this a pleasant day.

Mercury is standing still in the heavens as it prepares to turn retrograde on July 7. This adds more tension as misunderstandings, mistakes or breakdowns can cause problems in communication, commerce and travel. It will be important not to jump to conclusions at this time. Jul 6 : We should be able to sift fact from fiction at this time even though we still need to be aware that Mercury is turning retrograde the next day.
This will be a good day to get our surroundings in order and to take care of our physical and material needs. Jul 7 : Mercury turns retrograde see below. We may feel unsure about something at this time. It is not the time to make major decisions as we do not have all the pertinent information.
Especially avoid anything that seems the least bit suspect. Mercury is retrograde appears to move backwards from our view on Earth about three times a year. When Mercury is retrograde, we tend to get distracted. This can cause problems in travel and communications. It is also a time when we may experience mechanical and technological breakdowns. Be alert in all forms of communication, transportation, travel and mental activities.
The effects of Mercury Retrograde are often the strongest around the beginning and the end dates of the retrograde phase. The four days just before the retrograde phase begins and just after it ends can be quite unsettled. It also can take up to three weeks after the retrograde phase ends to tie up all the loose ends of the activities that occurred during the retrograde phase. Mercury Retrograde is a time to pause and go back over things rather than begin something brand new. This is a good time to take care of repairs, finish projects, get caught up and cleaned up.

Struggles for power and control Saturn conjunct Pluto. The struggle for power and control in the US and throughout the world will continue as Saturn and Pluto move closer to their conjunction on January 12, This has been discussed in the last two newsletters and I will continue to write about it in the future. This indicates spring and summer will be a period of karmic consequences , both in facing past actions and in taking actions that will have powerful consequences in the future.
Some of us may notice this in our personal lives, but it will be most obvious in the outer world. The use and misuse of power- past, present and future — are likely to be central issues. Traveling through a cloud Mercury Retrograde March 5 to In astrology, the planet Mercury is associated with the mind, the nervous system, speaking, learning, thinking, reasoning, memory, education, reading, information, communications, technology, transportation, travel, commerce activities, buying and selling.
When Mercury is retrograde, we tend to get mentally distracted. It can be a serendipitous time too, when fun, surprising and exciting events happen. Mercury will be retrograde in the sign of Pisces. Pisces is the area of our chart is where we are very imaginative, compassionate, spiritual and inspirational. This can lead to being ungrounded and disorganized. In other words, there should be plenty of things we need to tidy up in this part of our lives. In the process of clearing things up, we could rediscover some wonderful creative and spiritual parts of ourselves. We may also realize we have been operating under a misapprehension of the facts and that things are not what they seemed.
This could be one of those times.
See dates below. The main reason I think we could experience such a strong Mercury retrograde time is because Mercury will conjunct Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, three times. Mercury conjunct Neptune can indicate a very inspirational, intuitive, spiritual, imaginative and creative time. However, it can also be a period when we feel mentally scattered, fuzzy-headed or confused. This can result in misunderstandings or idealistically believing in something that is not what it seems to be. If possible, avoid starting negotiations or signing agreements during the entire month of March and until April In the meantime, enjoy the creative and spiritual side of this energy!
Create up a storm. Explore spiritual subjects. Get inspired. You are likely to always feel the Mercury retrograde periods because Mercury is your sun sign ruler. No matter what your sign is, take a positive approach and accept that you will need more patience and focus in your life during the retrograde period. Take this opportunity to clear out the clutter and refresh your life.
Explore your creative and spiritual side. Surprising changes in areas that seemed stable Uranus in Taurus. A long lasting and powerful energy shift will occur when Uranus enters the sign of Taurus on March 6, , where it will stay until April 25, Uranus briefly entered Taurus last year from May 15 to Nov 5, Something may have started then that will now develop and grow in Uranus is the planet of change and instability, Uranus shakes us up and wakes us up. Taurus is a practical down-to-earth sign that values stability, security and resists change by digging in and refusing to budge.
This suggests that over the next seven years, some things we thought were secure and solid will become unstable and go through surprising, sudden and disrupting changes. The changes will occur in the areas ruled by Taurus: the economy, banks, investments, material possessions, natural resources, the land, food production and nature in general. Climate change and other changes in the earth may become extremely important over the next seven years. Taurus is known for its endurance and there is likely to be a determined resistance against whatever is changing. This could drag things out longer than necessary.
However, Uranus will bring the changes whether we resist it or not. In fact, the more we resist, the more the Uranian disruptive energies will grow. We will definitely see this reflected on the world stage over the next seven years. We will also be affected in our personal lives. The good news is we have the choice as to how we respond. We all have an area in our chart that is ruled by Taurus. This is an area of our life that is likely to be stable, reliable and consistent and that brings us a sense of security. It is time to make some changes in this area and we may not want to do this.
Think of it as an update and a chance to try something new. Whether we find this fairly easy or very challenging probably both over the next seven years will depend on our individual birth charts. It is not something to fear. Change is a natural process in life and making changes and trying something new can be liberating and revitalizing. Uranus is very likely to bring you some changes and surprises in if your birthday is:.
If you know your chart, look for the house or houses that contain the sign of Taurus. This is the area of your life that will be changing over the next seven years. These are the parts of you that will experience the biggest changes in Although the Uranus in Taurus energy will occur over a seven year period, we are not likely to notice it personally until it makes a transiting aspect to our birth chart. When and how we will experience these changes depends on our individual birth charts.
When this does occur, keep an open mind and consider updating your life. Be open to things that are unusual or daring. This is a crucial five year period in which we are being forced to face our current global circumstances and think about what we envision for the future. In April and May , these issues are likely to be very obvious.
This particularly concerns technology, science, space exploration, climate change, pollution, our oceans and other environmental concerns. What we do now is very important. We have a window of opportunity in which we can come up with positive actions, solutions and plans that will put us on a positive path for the future.
To fail to do this could have drastic consequences in the years ahead. This is our chance to make some changes while we still can. Since , we have had to face some of the negative consequences of the proliferation of, and our dependence upon, the cyber world and technology. We are becoming painfully aware of our vulnerability to cyber hacking, cyber bullying, identity theft, invasion of privacy, and the global threats to the electronic systems and stability of governments, the military, banks, businesses, power and water systems. The Russian interference in the USA election and their continuing efforts is a perfect example.
Accidents caused while texting or talking on our cell phones have greatly increased. We are dependent on our cell phones, computers, iPads, Kindles, the Internet, shopping online and all kinds of electronic devices and toys for children and adults. This dependence is now part of the fabric of our everyday life. There are many wonderful benefits to all this technology and positive potentials for the future.
However, we now are beginning to see that being deeply embedded in a cyber world has many unexpected pitfalls. As citizens of the earth, the decisions made and action taken during this five year period will affect each one of us, our children, our grandchildren and all those who follow us.
The stakes are high and we can each do our part by paying attention and making our voices heard. Mar Mercury is almost standing still in the heavens as it prepares to go retrograde on Mar 5.
