Scorpio New Moon appears late on Saturday and is followed by the yummy Full Moon in Taurus Dec 4, in 2 weeks. It’s a month of emergence, into the new vision of you. The New moon brings the awareness that the longed for change has already happened, you’re there – no going back now! There’s no more soul searching to do before you can move, the transformation is happening. The story for this new moon is that change is the only constant. If you find yourself at sea after this huge year, laugh at the chaos and trust that this is as close to stability as it gets. Turns out you are not big enough to fight the natural state of the universe and besides you’d be bored if it stopped challenging you…so let’s go! by full moon the Taurus moon vibes bring goodness, comfort and solidity. This isn’t going to be as tough as it might feel right now, and many planets are supporting us to find the best path within the current confusion.

Venus and Jupiter are still creating conflicting desires in lovely Libra. Venus wants what is lovely, Jupiter wants what is good. Venus says – material attachments are important in the process of incarnation and self realisation, allow yourself to experience loveliness and create beauty. Jupiter says,  you must work at what is noblest, highest and most dutiful. While Jupiter and Venus are aligned in Libra we have a chance to do well materially and spiritually, if we resist the urge to oppose these ideas (no either/or, make them work together).

Saturn in Sagittarius is now one degree into the sign bringing an opening of horizons/ Keep working at making your highest values meet material reality. Your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile so PLEASE GET TO IT. It’s time to begin, and the Scorpio energy of the new moon cycle will help you eliminate the unnecessary.

Make magic by committing to the first substantial step of your 2018 plans before the Taurus Full Moon.

Aries

The Last moon cycle was BIG for you. Relationship issues required your attention, readjustment and consideration – Venus AND Jupiter in Libra in your relationship sector have been making things a bit much, try and steady things by enjoying the high feeling but not er…making it worse! Keep building on recent success and don’t let yourself get distracted by doubt – reality checks aren’t out to get you – they ensure your dreams come to exist. You may have to sacrifice the more exciting parts of your vision, try and remember although you are in charge of a lot in your life, you are not in charge of basic natural laws, and that’s fine! You are still a champion and a leader. To make magic this month focus on shared resources at the New Moon – reduce debts, manage expenses and find common ground with those you share your life with. The Full Moon in Taurus illuminates your 2nd house of income and resources – consolidate your gains and take time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Taurus

This is your month! The Full Moon will be in your sign, but first the New Moon appears in your 7th house of partnerships. Look at those who truly ‘get you’ and make your alliances and efforts in relationship to those most precious relationships. Find strength in your partnerships and be willing to begin anew. The Full Moon in your own sign in 2 weeks will bring all the effort of your inner work to fulfilment.

Venus brings you better emotional well-being before she joins the Sun in Scorpio later in November to bless your relationships.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Gemini

It’s time to focus on getting your health routines and daily life reorganised – the next 3 years are bringing big changes for you Gemini and it’s time to eliminate bad habits that weaken your happiness. Scorpio created blockage here for 3 years, now he’s gone you feel you can dance, move and be with your physical self again. Your ruler Mercury has been whispering encouragement about reorganising your life for the last few weeks and in a few days he skips into your 7th house of partnerships helping you create new ideas and plans in that realm of life. Mercury will also be spinning new ideas and visions for the Saturn transit of Sagittarius – you are building something substantial for yourself, but first you need to look at unconscious habits creating obstacles to your happiness. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Cancer

Rahu/North node continues to churn up your identity challenging you to step into your power. Last month the lunar cycle formed hard angles to your sign, pushing issues to crisis and bringing clarity around your place in the world and your worth. The New Moon is in Scorpio, your 5th house – a new cycle in love, flirtation and happiness. This is a month of play, parties and enjoyment and by Full Moon in 2 weeks you’ll feel a lovely comfort in your friendships and place socially. Last month was a bit bumpy sweet Crab, but this new cycle smoothes all of that down a little. A few little crises between New Moon and full moon around what the heck you are doing with your finances – don’t get distracted with worries, let the focus on the axis of fun and social life enrich you and restore your happiness.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Leo

Royal lions the New Moon is bringing up all sorts of deep, churning inner feelings – mostly behind closed doors – if you haven’t been able to look at how home life is going lately, it will all come up this month. Good thing is, you’re prepared and we can’t help but adore you – you’ll be falling in love all over again with domestic life and taking pride in your home. If you find some frustrations, resist the urge to fix everything all at once. Curl up with the rest of your pride and ask how you can make them feel comfortable and cared for. Let them know what you need to feel nurtured and at home. A warm, steady home life provides the strong foundation for career success which is the focus of the Full Moon in 2 weeks. Get the home stuff right and the other stuff works out well too. Make the outer and inner world work to support each other and you’ll be a happy little lion.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Virgo

The New Moon brings mental renewal and a clearing of the slate after 3 years of mental frustration and hard work and Mercury has only added to the hectic feeling. Even as life gets busy, your mindset is good – you are more resilient, confident and willing to advocate for your own needs. Mercury your ruler leaves this sector for your home and hearth sector in a few days time, turning your problem solving skills to little adjustments to home life that make things gentler and more lovely. The Full Moon will appear in your sector of highest ideals and long term vision – the focus this month begins on clearing the slate so there is space in your head to plan out the stuff that really matters. Keep your perspective on what matters and you’ll get it all done. This month will bring many small details into order and find you actually living in your longed for dreams.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Libra

The last moon cycle was hectic – new moon in your sign, Sun, Jupiter and Venus – and Full Moon setting off your relationships sector. BUT. You have redrawn the lines between you and your significant other/s, found new comfort in those relationships and renewed your sense of self and place in the world. Venus and Jupiter continue to irritate each other while somehow managing to also bring lots of good things to you – spiritual and material – at the same time. It’s confusing. The New Moon in Scorpio asks you to get real about how you are managing your money and place in the world and take some firm steps to attune to your Venus power to make things lovely and comfortable. The Full Moon in Taurus brings shared resources to pleasant fulfilment, the work you did on finding the limits and strengths of your relationships bears fruit later this month. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Scorpio

This new moon brings a renewal of your identity, a shivering thrill as you remerge once again, a different variation of self for the circumstances in which you find yourself. You are also being called to account for who you are – and if that idea is too flexible, too changeable, you can expect some baulking from those you are closest to. Not all dwell in the deep waters that you do and it’s important you find that balance between seeking the deepest truth and being gently reliable for your loved ones. Mercury is in your sign for a few more days, bringing reflection and necessary insight from recent frictions with friendships and social group. This lunar cycle you’ll be focusing on finding the middle ground between independence and real connection. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Sagittarius

Beloved Archer you are becoming more real, more substantial and Saturn assists you to work steadily at making your beautiful visions real. Don’t get caught in the inevitable difference between your ideal and the limits of reality, please keep sharing what you see with the rest of us, we need your vision to inspire us too. Let yourself take it easier – leisure is a creative process too. The work this month is in taking the matter from the unconscious and putting it to work. The New moon asks you to allow the unconscious and dreaming life to arise, and by Full moon you will understand how this inner life is supporting (or derailing) your daily life/health. Your ruler Jupiter has been tangling with Venus in Libra all month bringing dissatisfaction; a sense of being caught between pleasure and truth. Not all questions are moral questions, not all experiences have meaning, some things are just life stuff.   For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Capricorn

The New moon asks you to pay attention to the state of your social life and engagement with stuff outside of work/family/relationship. YES, Capricorn this is important, you canhang out with people just because it is fun. Make time in your schedule for fun, in the long run it makes you more productive. Part of being a good and socially responsible person – means you have to actually engage socially with others. You need social renewal. You need a chance to unleash your dry wit and make everyone laugh. Call your friends, drink a little too much, meet new people. By Full moon you’ll realise how much you crave more fun in your life and how much joy it gives you. Your ruler Saturn makes his first steps into your house of unconscious, dreaming, making self negating and avoidant behaviour solidify so you can kick them for good.    For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Aquarius

Dearest friend from the other end of the galaxy, it’s time to transform your attitude to work and home. You have a great destiny and you are more than capable of putting yourself forward to claim the recognition you deserve. I know you want to bring something never before seen that will simultaneously improve humanity, the environment and mess with everyone’s mind. Thing is, that’s not the task at hand. You are, for the time being, on planet Earth and need to apply your incredible insight to benefit your own standing and recognition at work. Work at your project steadily, it doesn’t have to be perfect or remarkable. Find a deeper purpose for these efforts, see how it enriches your home life. Send your roots deeper. The thing about reality is that it gives space for great ideas to take form and benefit everyone, don’t be afraid to make things steadier. Even the strongest trees still flex in the wind and float their arms upon the breeze. By Full moon you’ll have a better sense of your place in the world and how much you good you can do from that place. For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here 

Pisces

Your worldview has been shaken a little in the aftermath of last month’s full moon. Stuff came to light that you didn’t really think was an issue and it hasn’t all been lovely. Sweet mermaid, allow the tears to flow. And with courage, approach the imminent transformation. How does faith and philosophy fit into what has been happening? Go deeper, find the meaning and renew your heart. By Full Moon you remerge, mindset firm, steady and strong. Your heart may hurt but your determination is only deepened. You have work to do, last month showed that, and you have the sensitivity, intelligence and magic to make it come true. You will have what your heart wishes for, in time, do not falter. Keep the faith and see your dreams become real.  For a detailed look, book your own chart interpretation with Asha here

We spark and glow with new promise as the moon becomes Full in Aries on Saturday evening. This Moon is also called Kartik Poornima, the Full Moon of the Warrior Kartikeya. We emerge clad in armour for battle or expeditions, resounding with the joy of adventure or the battle cry – exhausted perhaps but triumphant. This moon cycle is all about balancing out the relationships that define our life – and standing strong, proud and victorious in who we are. We’ve fought to get here, we survived Saturn in Scorpio and we’re into new territory. Have you felt the change? The sense of new experience opening before you?

Venus in her own Kingdom Libra brings beauty and balance to our love affairs. The gentle work of Venus in Virgo brings sweet rewards all month. Venus is at her greatest power in Libra and opposing full moon in Aries she keeps the focus on lovely social events, sweet connection with dear ones and a sense of calm and peace in our relationships. Mars is still working hard in Virgo for a few more weeks. Mars helps us bring focus to what we must get done. He directs us to work with focus and steady application.

Saturn in Sagittarius shifts focus from the inner, personal truth to how we connect that with our highest ideals. The searing emotional accounting Saturn in Scorpio did since Nov 2014 to October 2017 is over (yayy!) BUT now Saturn will make us PROVE what we claim to believe. He’ll test those ideas by making them become real – this means we’ll see how flimsy or substantial our highest ideas are and where we need to get to work. Saturn in Sagittarius tests us to be really honest that aim for in our life is worth pursuing. And if Saturn’s reality checking shows that, yes – your goal is noble, useful and worthwhile then he’ll turn to you and test that you  are up to the task. You’ll feel the shift most once the Serpent period also active right now is over (all planets between the lunar nodes) but we begin to touch the new, warm, expansive feeling from mid November. Over all this is a much brighter time.

Happy Diwali for all my friends who celebrate the festival of lights.
May love fill your heart and the light of awareness guide you to your destiny.

The New Moon in Libra is the Solar New Year, the coming full moon of this lunar cycle is the first sign of Aries. This is a powerful month being both the new solar year and the month that Saturn leaves Scorpio, for Sagittarius after almost 3 years in  Scorpio. More on what that’s been about here.

Jupiter and Mercury, Moon and Sun align on this New moon. Jupiter is the planet of blessing and wisdom, Mercury – intelligence and strategy. The Moon radiates their influence and the Sun is the spark of vitality that sustains life on earth and within us. This month brings opportunity – if you are willing to do the work and make the most of it. Luck is part chance but mostly effort applied in the right place to the right ends. The change of Saturn to Sagittarius brings an invitation to make dreams solid bringing us 3 years of dedicated effort at work that we love. We will be tested to see if we are up to our task, and find that the ideal once solid isn’t as fun as when it remains a daydream. But we dream in order to make real, in order to live a different story than the one we’ve grown out of. It’s time for wishes to come true – so wish wisely!

The moon cycle begins in Libra at the new moon and Aries full moon. This month’s focus is all about finding the right balance between shared needs and individual destiny. If we attend to issues in our partnerships whether spouse, lover, business partner or closest friend we will achieve the individual freedoms we crave. If we can’t work steadily to be responsible to our others we might find some frustrations and outbursts flash to the surface by Full Moon! Ready yourself for a new beginning – prepare to leap.

New Moon – Oct. 20
First Quarter – Oct. 28
Full Moon  in Aries – Nov. 4
Last Quarter – Nov. 11

Aries

You are on FIRE beloved Aries and this month brings even more achievement, prizes and recognition your way. After a bumpy few days at the beginning of the month when Libra Moon and your Aries ways battle it out, you get to work organising things so relationships and your plans are mutually supportive. Mars with Venus is still shaking up your 6th house of health and routine making it hard to get organised, but make time for the detail work so the big plans can take flight. This month it’s all about keeping things balanced between you and your partner; your individuality is what makes you powerful, but a good partnership makes you a force to be reckoned with.

Taurus

Venus in Virgo with energetic Mars, keep bringing the focus on health, creativity and play together for you. This lunar month the focus is on the delicate balance of routine and with your desire to fulfil your ambitious dreams. You can’t achieve the massive goals you’ve got if you don’t have the plan defined – set your health goals, commit to good food, sleep and self care and by full moon you’ll be powering through any emotional blockages to self realisation that comes next month. Saturn finally leaves your partnership sector after a difficult 3 years for your 8th house of shared resources and intimacy. The steadiness and stability Taurus needs is coming, but you’re going to have to be down with sharing, yielding and working with your romantic or business partner – be wise and watch your life find a solid foundation for the years to come.

Gemini

Your ruler Mercury has a lot to say about this New Moon – your world is full of exciting opportunities that will set you up for the next little while. Virgo Mars and Venus continue to make home-life busy as you reorganise your inner life to match your increasing ambitions. This month the focus is on creativity as a means to achieve prosperity. You make inspiring new connections that help you to achieve your dreams. Just make sure those relationships are balanced and fair not just for them – but you too! Saturn is finally leaving your 6th house of health and routine and vitality will improve in the coming months.

Cancer

Your ruler appears in Libra at New Moon bringing a new phase in your relationship to home, hearth and your inner life. Venus and Mars bless your 3rd house of mind and writing – work hard on assignments, follow up leads, network and make the most of who you know to get to where you want to go. This moon cycle brings power to your career goals, keep the home life in balance and professional success is sure to come. From new moon to full moon (2 weeks) focus on creating harmony, making fair agreements and sharing of responsibilities at home so you have a strong foundation to climb to great heights in your career.

Leo

Bright Lion this moon cycle you are all about the little details that make the big ideas possible. The New Moon brings a fresh phase in your mental life – studies flow well, you’re busy with little communications and able to focus on the little steps needed to achieve your higher goals. In your chart Libra and Aries rule learning and intelligence, this month you’ll be considering higher education, professional training or coursework that will assist you in achieving your considerable sense of destiny. Venus and Mars in your second house are pushing you to refine how you manage your income so you can make the big dreams you know are yours, happen.

Virgo

Venus and Mars continue to bless you with charm, grace and vital energy. The New moon and Full moon this month bring focus to resources, shared financial commitments, debt and contribution. Don’t freak out about financial burdens before you take a good look at your actual income and the other resources available to you – energy, time, happiness. Ask yourself what worth means and find balance between economy and the purpose of material things – enjoyment, nourishment and pleasure. Jupiter brings a time of greater ease and chance to make money over the coming year – so while you are taking an honest look at cash-in, cash-out work with Jupiter’s benevolence to make this a time of greater prosperity not just wise economy. Mercury brings his clever mind to highlight little places where you can maximise what you have and turn it into even more.

Libra

The New moon is in your sign lovely Libra – it’s your personal new year – a time of renewal and rebirth. With Mercury and Jupiter making their presence known in your sign and Virgo and Mars stirring up memory, dreams and forgotten pieces of self this isn’t an entirely easy beginning to the lunar cycle – you are incredibly busy but part of your consciousness is held in the dreaming place creating a sense of imbalance. Allow your dreaming to bring the pieces into harmony and in the meantime work on reconstructing your sense of self in keeping with your newly realised goals. This lunar cycle the focus is on harmonising individual identity &  identity in relationship. If you’ve been losing yourself in worries about the beloved and self doubt fear not – just work on YOU and the other stuff comes clear at Full moon in Aries Nov 4.

Scorpio

Saturn is about to leave his heavy work to rest after 3 years of toil, effort and sorrow. But how strong you’ve become dear Scorpio! You know your depths, what you are capable of and seen the places of emptiness within you. The New Moon begins in your dreaming and unconscious sector but full moon is in Aries – ruled by you Mars, like you. Things on the work front continue to come to fruition with credit given and reward received for efforts. Social occasions abound and you’re busy with new friendships and flirtations. This month the focus is on facing the unconscious blocks to your own happiness and working through them piece by piece so you may come into your strength once again. Mercury and Jupiter in your dreaming sector help you to find the riches and benefits in facing the hidden stuff you’d rather not drag up. Make efforts this month to make peace with things from the past that may be haunting you – release them in dreaming, idle drawing and gentleness and feel it dissolve.

Sagittarius

Bright Sagittarius, Saturn approaches your sign bringing steadiness, confidence and strength after a 3 year season of doubt about who you really are. With your ruler Jupiter beginning the lunar cycle in Libra you feel a renewed sense of connection to your creativity and the other precious souls in your life.  All that seemed clouded and dampening your usual happiness is dissipating and we see you bold and smiling again – throwing your arms out to embrace us with your happy temperament and inspiring leadership. This month the focus is on your social roles and how this fulfils your creative, playful, happy self. Whatever is happening for you, throw yourself into joyous friendship, wrestle, tumble and tease your friends. Saturn leaves your career sector after 3 years of trouble making, bringing you into your strength. You will find your place dear Archer, just keep faith.

Capricorn

One foot on the earth, the other in the waters you bridge heaven and earth making sense of it all. This month the new moon brings focus on career and Jupiter’s year long transit of Libra brings incredible opportunity. Finally you see reward for your hard work and ethical conduct. Selling out is not an option for the honest Capricorn, but you have no illusions about the importance of getting paid. Aren’t you glad you held out and were honest to yourself? Keep consolidating your gains this month and the year ahead, make the most of Jupiter’s influence. The Full Moon illuminates issues at home, so working towards balance between hearth and career is recommended. After all, the reason you’re working so damn hard is for those who depend on you. Plan time with family and give yourself a moment to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Aquarius

Oh visionary Aqua the new Moon in Libra brings itchy feet and an impatience to explore the higher questions of life – travel, religious contemplation or study of higher things pulls on you. Jupiter began to whisper this to you when he entered Libra mid September, but this lunar month brings it to your consciousness. Unavoidable truths can be uncomfortable but they bring awakening. Resist the urge to pack your bag and disappear into the wilderness – instead use what you’ve discovered to find higher truth and purpose in your experience. Not one much given to confrontation this month you’ll be pushed to say what you mean and what you want in intimate relationships and with siblings/peers. That’s why knowing what you value is so important, you know what to let go and what must be spoken to.

Pisces

This lunar month the focus is on true intimacy and your psychological complexities. It’s time to reveal your vulnerability to yourself so that you can truly connect with your beloved. Perhaps you’ve been allowing the boundaries to dissolve, losing yourself in the beloved or dream of romance rather than being an equal participant in accountability, effort and presence. This is part of your magic, Pisces, the way you flow and meld with others but pulling in your edges won’t leave you alone with your hidden self. Instead, you will find heat and strength returning to your bones and joy aflame in your heart as your beloved ones see you clearly, perhaps for the first time. The Full Moon brings confidence in your own values and a determination to claim your life for yourself. The brooding at the beginning of the lunar cycle gives way as the moon grows brighter. This is a time of self-reclamation.

Softly, sweetly she comes, love gently gathering blossoms. Elegantly clothed, but quietly, she steps, carrying a basket of fruit, perfume precedes her. Venus has entered Virgo and she casts off her bold and Queenly robes revealing a wise maiden, a keeper of sacred light, crowned in spring blossoms, veiled in green leaves. Venus has lost her bold colour and instead, seeks dignity and gentleness.

Venus in Virgo brings an end to the heady Venus and Mars in Leo energy of the last few weeks. Virgo is the principle of containment and wise management which is opposed to the usual Venusian love of pleasure, comfort and ease. After the Venus in Leo transit it can feel like the supply of riches, excess and passion is turned waaay down. Now is a good time to review any excessive expenses from that last month. Take a hold of your spending on luxuries like clothes, dining out. Swap the over-indulgence in drama and drive the energy into actual work.  If we work wisely, Venus as Maiden brings an invitation to plan the next stages of our relationships to money and to the Beloved – or whatever/whomever it is that you desire.

Do not underestimate the Maiden, She carries her own magic and the secret source of prosperity if we are willing to be patient and wise. It’s just a little hard getting started on getting back to work after all the fun of the Venus and Mars behaving as King and Queen of Love in Leo.

Mars crosses into Virgo on October 13, joining Venus. Mars climbs down off his horse, and puts aside his armour. Mars helps us bring focus to what we know we need to do. In romantic relationships and financial matters we can choose to pine for the sense of ease and wealth of the Venus/Mars in Leo or we can direct our desires with focus and diligent work. If you can find beauty in economy, little comforts in the midst of the duty, if you can delay gratification you will reap a full harvest in time.

Venus is in Virgo until November 2
Mars crosses from Leo into Virgo October 13 and remains in Virgo until November 29.

While Saturn is preparing to cross the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius October 26. Saturn won’t be out of the dark until after November 8, but as 2017 draws to a close we feel a serious shift in gears in our life. Saturn takes 28 or so years to go around the zodiac – about 2.5 years per sign. Every time he changes sign we experience a change in the “realities” we have to deal with. Read more on Saturn in Scorpio here. The Sagittarius transit is a whoooole lot better than the difficult, but transformative, Saturn in Scorpio transit.

Venus and Mars in Leo showed what (and who?) it is you really want. Venus and Mars in Virgo show us the wisest path to get there, if we are willing to do the work.

Aries

Your ambitions and goals are actually taking form! It’s an exciting time of continued effort and work but seeking fruit ripen on the tree is a good motivator. The Full Moon ennui is dissipating, as you see that your work was worthwhile after all. This is a big thing for Aries, always pursuing success, ambition or adventure. Your ruler Mars is leaving the playful and fun Leo for the more demure Virgo. With Mars in Virgo your focus turns to working carefully on the details, taking care of your well-being, duties and routines and reap the rewards as Saturn leaves your 8th house for Sagittarius – crystallising your good-fortune and establishing your dreams as a reality you can take a hold of.

Taurus

Venus moves into Virgo, bringing focus to your romance, playfulness and children sector. Virgo is a quiet, contained sign. But Venus with Mars by her side, brings you gifts of gentleness, kindness and comfort. Venus invites you to make space for play and because you are an Earth sign, you might need to schedule it to make it happen. Saturn is moving from opposition to your sign in just a fortnight, lightening a 2.5 year period of difficult relationships. Attune to the Venus and Mars in Virgo and tidy up, make new order and prepare ground for a fresh new cycle of seed, flower and fruit.  Eat well and make caring for your health a creative and pleasurable process. We know Taurus always prefers pleasure to duty, so make your health routines lovely and see the transformation true nourishment brings.

Gemini

Gemini is the ally of Virgo. Both are ruled by clever Mercury. Gemini is sparkling intelligence but Virgo has the intelligent plan and skill to make it real. With Venus, Mars, Mercury & Sun (until Oct 17) in Virgo your focus on home and hearth continues this week. Clear out cupboards, file paper work and spring clean. Make a plan and check each task off the list. Your diligent work will payoff – your refreshed home space makes room for new ideas, dinner parties and other lovely, interesting things. In love and relationships you are focusing on making the home space a heart space, snuggle up, stay in and enjoy the little, comfortable, every-day things that give love a strong foundation.

Cancer

Venus and Mars in Virgo bring some calmer, steadier vibes after last month’s heady Leo excesses. Venus and Mars bring creativity, energy and focus to your intellectual life. It becomes easier to focus on getting detail work done. Now is the time to create strategies, economic plans and set new timetables so you have enough time to do all the things you love – properly. Take care not to neglect your health routines, Mars brings gains in health and well-being if you apply yourself right now. The Moon is at her last quarter for the month in your 12th house bringing extra moodiness today, but the weekend brings Moon in Cancer days – you will feel in flow, content and at peace.

Leo

Sigh! After a heady few weeks passionate lovers Mars and Venus have left your sign for delicate Virgo. The big energy of this transit brought a boost in confidence and makeover of your look and reputation. Now Virgo Venus and Mars has you thinking about money, expenses and ugh – economising. You love to be generous and you love to enjoy – having to manage your finances or just think about using things in a more ordered way is a little uncomfortable for you. Remember even Empresses have to manage their vast resources – it doesn’t make you any less royal. Wise management makes necessary extravagances possible. In love and relationships it’s time to look at the practical aspects you need to make it work – make the effort now and you will gather bountiful harvest in a few months time.

Virgo

Venus and Mars enter your sign making you glow. Your vitality surges thanks to Mars’ influence, Venus gives you a charming, attractive and lovely aspect. Make the most of this week to charm your loved one, flirt with your sweetheart and win not through a show of force, but by making them want to give in. Your ruler Mercury changes to Libra in a few days bringing your focus to finances and resources – Venus and Mercury are in each other’s kingdoms bringing intelligence to money matters and charm to matters that normally need to be argued to be won. Make the most of the lovely energy this month and enjoy the blessings they bring. In love you have the magnetism of Mars and attractions of Venus to romance your sweetheart or charm your spouse with considerate romantic gestures that make her melt.

Libra

Your ruler has disappeared into the hidden sector of your chart, taking the emphasis off friendships and gains from your efforts at work. Mars joins her in agitating your unconscious mind bringing vivid dreams and vague longings. Allow Venus and Mars to work their way through the unconscious mind and guard against big expenses. It’s a good time to check any places in the budget that might be leaking cash. Search for savings that you can later invest on lovely things to enjoy. In love and romance Venus and Mars have you intriguing, romancing and seducing behind closed doors. Venus and Mars in the 12th house bring secret love affairs and dream lovers, intoxication and romantic daydreams. Next month Venus enters your sign bringing a new cycle of lovin’ yourself, makeovers and everyone else reminding you how lovely you are.

Scorpio

Mars your ruler joins Venus in elegant Virgo bringing recognition and reward from recent efforts in your career. It’s a busy time as Saturn begins preparations to leave your sign after 2.5 years of difficulty and frustration in making your way in the world. Work hard at consolidating gains at work, making the most of the good reputation you are gaining in your professional life. You’ll find yourself busier than usual with invitations to parties, hang with friends and socialise – take care not to get into conflict with pals as Mars brings any hidden frustrations to the surface. In love and relationships Venus an Mars bring the chance to find new love through your many social engagements. Those already in love delight in being in the beloved’s company at parties – enjoying the friendship aspect of your romance all month.

Sagittarius

Venus and Mars grace your 10th house of career and vocation. After a month of big picture and visionary ideas about your life’s purpose it’s time to apply these discoveries to your career and public reputation. Plan, order your work environment and make a business plan. Organise your goals and big picture thinking on a big piece of paper and scribble the first steps you need to make it work. Venus and Mars bring the chance to achieve new heights in your profession – the results don’t have to be perfect just get it done! In love you find new romance through activities related to your profession but not on the job necessarily…for those in relationships your career goals can cause tension with your loved one, make sure he still feels he still matters as you begin to achieve some of those long term goals.

Capricorn

Bridging heaven and land Capricorn is part water, part earth. It’s time to think clearly about what you are really aiming for in your life. Make time to ponder the big, existential questions. Check that your plans align with what is possible in life and what you long for. Don’t let practical considerations cast gloom on your aspirations, find a way to balance both the desired and possible. In love and romance Venus and Mars invite you to consider the higher purpose of your romantic attachments and to live up to them. Perhaps it’s time to adjust your life so that you meet these nobles ideals. Over all this month brings a gentler time after the emotional intensity of last month. Take refuge in Virgo’s heavenly order to bless conflicts you have in love and desire. Virgo brings peace and acceptance so that you can enjoy and deeply connect with your beloved.

Aquarius

Venus and Mars move into your intimacy sector stirring up hidden feelings and attachments which make fair-minded Aquarius a little uncomfortable. Luckily for you, Virgo restrains the passion of Mars and the sentimentality of Venus meaning you have some space to work out what all these feelings mean and you can communicate any issues to the beloved. Allow any deep feelings to brew and ripen within you – don’t feel you have to work it all out right now. Await the transit out of Virgo into Libra in a months time. It is a time to look at what is shared and what is not – consider where you need to make limits and where you may need allow your others to get closer to you  so that sweetness can grow between you and your sweetheart. For single Aquas now is a time of coming to term with any issues in intimacy, especially betrayal, that have been hurting your heart and keeping love at a distance. Allow yourself to feel, accept and farewell the history so you can begin a new connection in good time.

Pisces

Venus and Mars enter your relationships sector. They ask you to define your feelings, create boundaries in which to hold your romantic feelings and to make a solid plan if you are in a relationship. Your beloved needs your energy and attention. After the last Full moon you’ve got some better insight into who you are. If you know what you are about you know how much you are capable of giving and can really make something of your relationships. Be honest about it, and ease your beloved’s mind. She doesn’t want something you can’t give, but she does want to know what you want and are able to give. For the Pisces seeking love, Venus and Mars in Virgo bring opportunity to find and renew love through little, considered actions rather than grand gestures. Overcome your shyness and invite your sweetheart to get to know you better, Venus and Mars are on your side!

Tonight’s Full moon is in gracious Pisces – Pisces is the infinite sea, both within us and between us all. Pisces is the universal consciousness in which all plays and into which all dissolves. The waters of Pisces are like ambrosia, eternal, beautiful, intoxicating and bring visions and soulful inspiration. When Piscean energy is strong the usual borders between our different states of consciousness melt – we feel connected with every part of ourselves but at the same time this can be overwhelming – to be consciously aware of how deep our awareness goes? It’s both intoxicating and enlightening.

Pisces Moon days bring us to the edge of incredible emotional sensitivity, spiritual insight and release. Opposing Sun and Mercury aligned in Virgo we find ourselves working wisely to create a container to carry for our highest ideals – so the sweet water stays with us instead of running through our fingers or dissolving in our dreams.

Virgo Sun and Mercury guide us to economise, create order and practise gentle austerity. Self control and wise use of resources isn’t as enjoyable as it is necessary to make space for the beautiful and mysterious. It is this delicate management of the many and competing impulses, desires and obligations that Virgo regulates. If we apply our efforts to careful planning, we can gather up some of the magic from tonight’s full moon.

Virgo is the vessel, Pisces is the ambrosia that fills it – both are needed for each to be of use. In the same way, we should take due care to prepare for the blessings we wish to receive and carry through our lives.

Mars and Venus are aligned in Leo tonight bringing their conjunction to its most intense. They’ve been approaching since the New Moon 2 weeks ago – bringing heat, passion and breakthroughs. Conflicts approached with courage reap sweet reward in our relationships and in terms of material resources. (Venus rules both love and luxury). Mars rules courage and conquest. We are given the courage and the talent to take up our position in life (Leo). Though we are pushed to prove that we are up to the tasks to which we aspire, we achieve much if we do not allow doubt to weaken our courage.

Mars and Venus are in hard aspect to Lord of Reality, Saturn. The ‘love planets’ also oppose dreamy Neptune. We have an opportunity to balance the competing needs of the people concerned, the limits of our lives (Saturn) and our longings and dreams (Neptune). This aspect dissolves as Venus breaks free of Saturn’s steadying hand from Oct 16 as she moves into Virgo. Mars remains in conflict with the heavy planet until October 25. On the same day Saturn finally crosses the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius ending a 2.5 year transit (more on that here)

Mercury and Sun alignment continues to bring busyness and difficulty focusing on tasks – the tension between Mars and Saturn also affects our work lives brining us a lot to deal with and work on all at once. Take care of your health and work steadily to complete the increase in work load or work difficulty.

horoscopes

You can read by moon sign, rising sign or sun sign. These are horoscopes based on the sidereal zodiac. You can draw your chart here and find out what sign you were really born under (more info here.) To book a detailed reading with Asha connect here

Aries

The full moon appears in the 12th house of your unconscious, your hopes/fears, dreaming and longing. Your usually active, vital energy is washed with Piscean sensitivity. At the same time, your ambitions and goals are actually taking form, and this only increases your sense of ennui. The ever expanding nature of ambition can be overwhelming. Work with the understanding that there is always a new goal, and never a completion. Instead of anxiety you will feel the joy of the chase. Your ruler Mars is in royal Leo aligned with beautiful Venus, make time for play, romance and creativity until the last week of the month when these planets will bless your work life.

Taurus

This full moon glows in the 11th house of friendships, creative work and recognition for your efforts in your career. Bathe in the beautiful silvery light, make sure you connect with those who love and enjoy your company and move your Taurean self from where you are comfortable to where you can express yourself more dynamically. Issues in community/social groups and wider friendship networks ease as the Piscean energy brings grace and peace. Mars aligned with Venus in Leo has made your creativity soar and is bringing a new sense of connection to roots, early life and mother/mother’s family.

Gemini

Like you sparkling Gemini, Pisces is a mutable or flowing sign. The full moon allows you to connect with the deepest level of your psyche and your creative thinking flourishes. You feel connected on all levels of your awareness  and you can sense there are great opportunities developing for you in your career – you’ve just got to gather all that intelligence into focused action. Your ruler thankfully is in sensible Virgo – dream big, communicate your ideas and give your plans a structure so that the magic you dream of can become a reality.

Cancer

Watery and sensitive, your heart is overflowing with feeling. At sea in the Piscean Moonlight tonight allow tears of joy, of sorrow, of I-don’t-know-why-I’m-crying to wash over you. You feel, so feel deeply, allow it. What you believe, the highest values that drive your life are illuminated – this can be joyous or feel heartbreaking or a mix of both. Allow what comes to light to appear, you can work on it later. Sweet Cancer you are so busy caring for and securing everyone else’s happiness, sometimes you just need to overflow with feeling for your own experience. Surrender and clarity will appear in a few days time as the moon begins to wane.

Leo

Both Mars and Venus are in your sign, bringing energy, boldness, beauty and prosperity. With Mercury and Sun in Virgo it’s a good time to look at restructuring and economising so you can better direct your energy towards your goals. The Full Moon in Pisces brings blessing to your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. Sometimes sharing power makes more space for creativity and prosperity. Instead of trying to take charge all of the time look at how you can share power to your and your other’s mutual advantage. Venus and Mars in your sign give you both the charm and the power to re-establish your position and conquer any challenges you face.

Virgo

The Full Moon is in your relationships sector, bringing a dash of romanticism, dreamy devotion and longing for the ‘beloved’ to arrive. Relationships are a place of limitlessness for the order loving Virgo. This Full Moon invites you to let go of order for a moment and flow in sentiment, to let love and longing flow over you. The Sun is in your sign and so is your ruler, Mercury, bringing attention to your public face and giving you the ability to impress others with your intelligence and capacity to achieve your goals. A good month to put yourself forward and back your own dreams publicly and to tend to the significant others in your life who need your love and devotion, and are willing to lavish you with the same in return.

Libra

Lovely Librans are blessed this month with ruler Venus motivated by Mars in Leo bringing a burst of creativity, confidence and courageous re-entrance onto the stage of life.  The Full Moon blesses your health, bringing insight into what has been neglected and some wisdom as to the habits and patterns underneath any self neglect. Understand the necessity of balance in maintaining the harmony of the body and set yourself up for good health from now on. Bless yourself with a commitment to true care of your own self. Your day job is more pleasant than usual as you complete important projects or finally realise, there is somewhere lovelier you could be, and begin to work toward that.

Scorpio

Saturn is finally leaving your sign after 2.5 years. By the end of the month you will feel relieved of a heavy burden you’ve carried this whole time, it’s been hard work and true to Scorpio form you have not flinched. Release to the full moon tonight the sorrow about love and romance you’ve carried since that time. The Full moon renews your love and romance sector. The Venus and Mars alignment bring sparkling flirtation, sweetening  and warming your heart towards romance again. You realise you can make choices other than solitude and still remain dignified, you – not all sweetness requires silliness or love foolery.  Let your loving heart blossom with the warmth of your ruler Mars in Leo bringing your romantic magic back.

Sagittarius

Not usually one for sentiment, the Sagittarius prefers to think about the higher things, the Pisces Moon draws you into the cosmic waters just to feel, experience and abide with the greater consciousness – beyond philosophy into the mystic vision. The Full Moon in your 4th house is making you long madly for home, for old hearths and hearts. Enjoy the sentiments of the next few days but don’t lose sight of your long term vision – when you aim for the highest, it can feel solitary, that is the nature of being an Adventurer. Mars and Venus in Leo lift your spirits and help you to distract yourself with work that will bring prosperity in the months to come. Saturn’s entrance into your sign will help you take these visions of beauty and realise their potential in solid form.

Capricorn

Now you’ve understood what it is you need to get to work on next – and dear Cap you are always willing to work! – it’s time think innovatively about how you can communicate THE PLAN.  You’ll be busy bringing visionary perspectives to detailed work for the rest of the month. It’s hard work, making the magical manageable, but this is what Capricorn does best –  bridging matter and potential into something useful, meaningful and valuable. Mars and Venus are bringing heat to your love life, and you are more willing to work with your beloved to build your future than you’ve been in sometime. Enjoy the high magic of tonight and the chance to connect all levels of your awareness to inspire your practical super powers.

Aquarius

Beautiful water-bearer, the Pisces moon in your 2nd house brings blessings to your finances and resources and a new perspective on what your values actually are. With Mars and Venus in Leo your house of relationships is receiving a lot of passion and heat, encouraging you to consider connecting personally, closely, intensely with a significant other…and what this means for your whole world view. Saturn your ruler is about to move into your 11th house helping you to make real your plans for social change, work with collectives and your wider friendship group. Tonight make time to soften the edges between what you think you know about yourself and consider deeply – do I still believe this? What are my values now…and what does that mean for me?

Pisces

The Full Moon in your own sign brings a surge of confidence, connectedness and sweetness. Take your fill on the Piscean seas at their height – the sense of connectedness and peace is strong tonight and you are one with all. With your ruler now in Libra in your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources your focus is now on how much you are really sharing with your partner if you have one, and how you can make that happen if you don’t. The Sun and Mercury have you thinking about your partner’s needs or how to get yourself involved more seriously with your love interest. Create structures for your dreams and watch them become real – you don’t lack magic, you just need to learn to apply it in one direction. Finding out what that is? Well…seek answers in the dreaming tonight and continue to seek answers, stay focused and enjoy the fruits of your efforts.


virgo

A blessed new moon in Virgo to you! Virgo is the gentle sign of spring blossoming earth in the south and the time of gathering abundance in the North, the New Moon in Virgo heralds a time of attending to the beautiful details of life – of renewing, refreshing and rededication. The fierce fire of Mars, Mercury, Venus in Leo leaves much bubbling under the surface this month, and we have the Full moon in mysterious and shimmering Pisces – there are 2 layers to the experience this month – gentle new beginnings and some shrugging off of that which does not serve. Take care to avoid heated exchanges (Mercury and Mars in Leo) and turn your energies towards the pleasures of energetic friendship, romance and play (Venus also in Leo). Jupiter now enters elegant Libra balancing our relationships and bringing wisdom to work in the area of life ruled by Libra. We are still experiencing the consequences of eclipse disruptions and calls to transform. Attune to the gentle and sacred energy of Maiden Moon tonight – making your offerings to the Goddess tonight to help you fulfil your duties, with grace, lightness and happiness.

Hello star lovers! It’s Aquarius Full Moon day and things are bright, sparkling, buzzy and a little out of left field. My internet is down! Assignments are due! Aquarius Moon energy is wild and makes me want to dance across the universe thinking about the BIG PLANS and less about the how-to-get-there. Mercury is finally direct gaining speed from his stationary motion bringing those insights, a-ha! moments, those messages you’ve been waiting on and clearing up communication issues. He won’t be out of the retro zone for a few weeks yet so time to synthesise and sort through all that reflection – and carry any jewels you discovered forwards.  With Mars joining him in his progress through the sign of Leo there’s high mental energy, potential for verbal agitation and fightin’ words.

Focus on where you can respond to what’s happening in the world – focus on your world and community and act with goodness, integrity and a warm heart. Combined with the Full moon buzz you might not be getting much sleep. Mercury and Mars cross over the eclipse point from Aug 22 (refresh your memory here) triggering action on the understanding and words following those eclipse and Mercury retro revelations. We really got a chance to stop, look over our lives and destiny and work out where to from here. I don’t know about you but my life has taken a sharp left hand turn since the first hummings of revelations at the Lunar eclipse last full moon. It’s been a whole lunar cycle since then – can you recognise yourself? Sort of? Exciting times.

Saturn is moving forward steadily now and will cross out of Scorpio into beloved Sagittarius from Oct 22 bringing lighter vibes generally but we won’t really get the best effect until he leaves the Mula constellation and is deeper into the sign – early in 2018 Jupiter is in good aspect right now and for the next few weeks as he crosses between Virgo and Libra he shines benevolently on us all – let’s hope wisdom pervades in our personal and greater worlds; that new alliances arise out of all this change and upheaval.

Jupiter’s work in Virgo during 2017 taught us – kindly, wisely, – how to take care of routines. To see the little details as a sacred and worthwhile endeavour in their own end. No one likes duty – we all prefer ice-cream, netflix and someone else to do the dishes – but this transit helped us understand the sacredness in duty and hopefully we can keep working on that lesson even after he leaves Virgo. Admittedly, it’s taken some of the buzz and pop out of Jupiter’s usual joyous influence (in Mid 2015 to mid 2016 Jupiter was in Leo, the energy was big, grand and dramatic!) but the quiet virtue of Virgo taught us a lot about wise economy – money, body, energy – and helped some of us finally deal with health attitudes that needed structural change at the daily level. (Obviously this is me.)

Tonight’s Full Moon  is in noble Aquarius, in the star of Purva Bhadrapada. A star of righteous clarity and impossible magic that somehow, is possible (the stars of Purva Bhadra are in the pegasi constellation). In European tradition the Pegasus is connected to the mysteries of the deep waters, flight and magical journeying. The Purva Bhadra mysteries and the symbolism of Aquarius / Kumbha connect with these principles of sparkling intelligence, pure inspiration, movement, clarity, succour and justice.

Even if you are unsure where-to-from-here, tonight salute the beautiful moon and call forth your own inner fire.

Mars and Mercury direct in your 4th house of home leave you agitated by the hearth fire but ready to strike new beginnings in how you run your home and spend your time there. Make plenty of time to get out and release agitating, stuck energy  – don’t keep it buzzing away in your lounge-room.

Then align your actions with this guiding light and begin to move forward. Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Gemini / Mithuna
Mercury is your ruler and his retrograde is quite uncomfy for the sparkling Gemini. Now he is direct and running about with Lord Mars in Leo too you can expect things to get going – fast! Which is just how you like it. All this energy in the house of thinking and ideas makes you work a mile-a-minute so take care not to burn out. Get the creativity out and commit to putting a solid action plan in place once the big buzz dies down a little. Don’t let all this new vitality spark and dissipate, put it to work for maximum reward. The Full Moon is in the beautiful 9th house of Personal Quest and “the big vision” – you experience an “a-ha!” moment as the image of what you’re meant to be doing and why all comes together. Enjoy this time of frenzied activity and high feeling as you emerge into a new phase in your life – be courageous and leap across the threshold beautiful things await.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Cancer / Karka
Venus blesses you as she transits your own sign however she has made tears ever-ready and increased your usual sentimentality to an almost painful level. Try to enjoy the sweetness and stay clear of the bitter-sweet, don’t dwell – float on the surface of your deep feeling and enjoy the shift and ebb of the tide. Keep it light, and let the Full Moon in your 8th house reveal what it is causing all that “not enough” feeling in your romances/close relationships. What do you really need and how can you ask for that? How can you share this burden, invite love in? In more practical terms Mercury now direct in your 2nd house along with Mars brings some relief to straightened cash situation, however Mars can tend to spend as soon as you make it – so keep that in mind and try to economise on the extras as you catch up on outstanding bills.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Leo / Simha
You dear Leo are the centre of it all, as you know and the Mercury direct, Mars in Leo – the past Leo New moon eclipse and the Full moon Aquarius vibes are hitting you head on. With Mercury direct your head comes out of the muddle it’s been in for almost a month. Mars lifts your spirit and gives you improved energy too. The big identity crisis wrought by the New Moon eclipse 2 weeks ago clears to reveal the shining path ahead. The Full Moon in your 7th house of committed relationships brings focus to your partner or what you’d like to do with that whole area of your life. You begin to see how relating needs to change now that you’ve gotten some new perspectives during the Merc retro. Enjoy this time of you-and-I and for solo Lions who would like to be paired up – a good time to get insight on not just what you need but what you can bring to a future partner.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Virgo / Kanya
Jupiter dallies in the last degrees of your sign where he has blessed and expanded your life in lots of little ways for about 12 months. As he moves into the 2nd house of income and resources you can expect a little boost there too – a reward for all the sensible reconsideration of your direction in life you undertook this year. The Full Moon sparkles brightly in your 6th house of health and healing. You look good on the job and are enjoying your time there too. Mercury, your ruler, is now direct and as he moves through your 12th house of unconscious and renunciation it’s time to let go of self-defeating thinking, fears and habits of anxiety that have nothing to do with you at all. Mars brings you the courage and vigour to move forward from here – take his assistance and move past those feelings into a state of peaceful clarity.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Libra / Thula
Venus rules your sign and she’s still floating through your 10th house of vocation and reputation. You are arriving at a place of greater harmony with all the stuff you believe and have been doing with your life up until this point. All the work you’ve ever done is synthesising into an image of your calling in the world. Saturn’s restrictions in your 2nd house of income have meant you can’t distract yourself with lovely things so you had to discover how to create the harmony and balance in other ways. This has been hard work but, productive. It can take you a long time to make your mind up. Once you do – it is a fait accompli.  The Full Moon brings creative vibes and romance to your 5th house of love and fun. Mercury direct clears his head and gets to work with Mars in your 11th house of friendships and brings rewards from your efforts in your career you kicked off at the last full moon.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Scorpio / Vrishick
Deep transforming Scorpio, Saturn the Restrictor is leaving your sign and you can expect life to soften substantially from Oct 22 as he enters Sagittarius. He may restrict your income a little but he isn’t restricting your energy generally. This Full moon invites you to clear your head of limited perspectives about yourself and doubts that undermine your profound abilities. Mercury direct and Mars, your ruler, are aligned in Leo  in your 10th house of career and reputation. Make a go of it – now is a powerful time to climb to new heights and make a name for yourself in your work. Throw yourself into the efforts ahead of you and reap recognition you deserve further down the line. The Full moon in your 4th house of home and roots presents you with an opportunity to enjoy your home life, pleasant times with your mother/mother’s family and happiness at the hearth fire.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Sagittarius / Dhanus
Joyous Sagittarius sails through most things unscathed and because the eclipses aspected your sign reasonably well you will have been experiencing the positive side of the transits (unless personal planets were afflicted). You are good at “new”, you delight in discovery. The issue for you is keeping at something before getting onto the next exciting thing. With Mercury direct aligned with Mars in your 9th house of the Quest, journeying and the big picture – you can rest assured you are still on track. Let the Merc retro musings find their place, recalibrate – and then get back into the adventure. Your ruler Jupiter leaves Virgo for Leo on September 12. For the next year there will be a shift in focus from 10th house of career and “what am I doing with my life” to “I am glad I am doing this, look how much fun I am having and all the great people I am connecting to along the way” – the 11th house. Full moon glows in your 3rd house of communication and ideas – your mindset brightens and you think laterally about how to solve the challenges you are facing.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Capricorn / Makara
The last Full Moon was in your sign heralded a complete revision of what you are doing with your life. Add 2 eclipses into the mix and a Mercury retrograde and we have a whole other you before us at this full moon. With your ruler Saturn readying to move after 2.5 years in Scorpio this is necessary, and wise, shift in perspective. The Full moon glows in your 2nd house of resources and income illuminating what is your basic level of need to achieve your revised ambitions provoked by last month’s big changes. Venus opposes your sign, in Cancer, sweetening your relationship and drawing you deeper into love. Mars and Mercury direct in your 8th house of intimacy and debt help you understand what you need to share and what you are willing to give to your beloved, and what you need to leave behind from your past to be you – right now – in all your potential.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Aquarius / Kumbha
This Full moon is in your sign and you receive illumination about your self-concept. Aquarians are attuned to a different rhythm and bring their wisdom to the cause of all – truly individual but devoted to the common good – this Full moon invites you to engage deeply with your personal destiny. Mars and Mercury direct oppose the Full moon and move through your 7th house of partnerships and relationships. Clear insight, dissatisfaction with where the boundaries lie and potential conflict that arises from these insights can overshadow the recent progress in your significant relationships. Ketu has now left Aquarius bringing his liberating power to your unconscious mind and turning your mind to the deeper spiritual dimensions of your life. With the Full Moon in Aquarius you are invited to see what remains about who you thought you were and then breathe new life into your identity and appearance in the world.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead 

Pisces / Meena
The Full Moon illuminates your 12th house of unconscious and dreaming attuning you to the deepest current of your being and bringing quiet understanding. Your vivid dreams speak in symbol and story to the greater mythos of your life. Mars and Mercury direct in your 6th house of health and healing bring recovery and resilience to your health but can agitate on your day-job. Speak clearly and with energy if needed, but take care not to burn the supports that sustain this part of your life – the unconscious is more active than usual and issues unrelated to conflicts at work may find their way out where it doesn’t belong. Jupiter your ruler is leaving your 7th house of partnerships taking the focus from you-and-them to the intimate aspect of the relationship, shared resources and the private sphere of life. Venus aspects your sign bringing grace and feeling to your 5th house of romance and creativity making this full moon cycle a dreamy time laden with emotive experiences.  Book your session Asha for more information on your astrology and the changes ahead

Restoring the Soul Asha Maria
Saturn is direct again and at the end of his 3 year Scorpio transit!

Cry in relief folks, for most of us it has been brutal. Thanks for the lessons Lord Saturn, but happy to move forward now. I am definitely a lot tougher than at the beginning of this cycle but ooh, ouch – oof! Weren’t those lessons so hard? Since Nov 2014 it’s been a ride through the deep depths of our karma. We’ve experienced transformation as we dealt with the consequences of actions (made by us or enacted upon us). Anywhere we have been less than utterly real, honest and truthful about ourselves was ripped into clarity –  pushed against limits to see whether we would break or break through.

Saturn in Scorpio brings out our gifts but only through immense difficulty. He strips away everything that is no longer in keeping with our destiny so that we may continue. Saturn has 7 veils of darkness (our illusions) as the Sun has 7 radiations of illumination. We all prefer the illumination because it is beautiful, ecstatic, lovely. But the illumination dissipates if we have not worked Saturn’s path too. Saturn’s unveiling reveals the inner light and beauty  – surprising and lovely – in his own way.  He prepares the ground for us to grow.

Who likes limitations? None of us. And that is why Saturn comes to SCHOOL us so we can actually achieve our destiny, because we prefer comfort to growth. Ease, to discipline, we are material sensuous creatures (mmm) but this can create problems, we avoid suffering and thus do not grow. Saturn gives us the law of reality, he teaches us the importance of structure, routine and duty.

Saturn is the least favourite of the planets because he makes things real. Lord of Restriction, creator of Inertia and karmic accountant. He exposes our ‘LACK’ – our incapacities, our limits. He shows the reality of our capacities and the work needed to improve ourselves and actually achieve the dreams he seems to destroy.

Accept this truth, painful as it is, we become capable, responsible and enduring. What seems destruction of our ‘hopes and dreams’ equips us to become creators within our destinies.  He doesn’t punish or cause strife for no reason; he shows up where we haven’t covered all the bases or not been honest with ourselves.

Saturn’s transit through Scorpio was, frankly, brutal. Especially for those born with Saturn in Scorpio or Moon signs of Scorpio (sade sati), Taurus (oppositions with partners) or Aries (ashtamsha). His lessons are HARD. He retrogrades thrice during his 3-ish year transit of each zodiac sign. He takes us over, and over again, the lessons we need to learn.

Now, after 6 months retrograde Saturn is in direct motion again, turning direct late last night. He is a slow planet so we don’t feel the effect for a few more days – but it is time to get moving on working within the structures you’ve had to shore up since March. You will begin to make ground with frustrated efforts, Saturn supporting actions of diligence, discipline and endurance.

Because we’re at the very last stretch of the Saturn in Scorpio transit it’s time to synthesis the lessons and move the heck on. DO NOT STAY in those murky waters. Look ahead, keep building, move more steadily and use any difficult experiences as tools to overcome future challenges. Saturn will move into joyous Sagittarius from Oct 22, taking us back into that ground we began to cover in January 2017. It’s time to get to work – and the tides are with us. Expect a few more bumps from this karma since Nov 2014 as we approach the end of it, and especially as Saturn moves slowly on the knot between Scorpio and Sagittarius. This knot or gandanta triggers a shift in gears in our work with Saturn’s energy – limits, restrictions, responsibility.  Full steam ahead, steady as she goes – we won’t be back in Scorpio for another 28 years.

The Saturn in Sagittarius transit will help us make our ideals real, get hard to work on higher study and assist writers/philosophers and academics to bring Saturnian wisdom, structure and order to the ideal and intangible.

horoscopes

Read by moon sign for the development of the soul/emotional effect, Sun sign for life direction/structure, Ascendant sign for your persona. These are SIDEREAL/VEDIC horoscopes.* 

Aries – Saturn leaves the difficult 8th house of emotional turmoil, debt and shared karma (with spouse or significant other).  Now in direct motion, be willing to get to work on understanding this difficult period – you know what you are made of and what you are capable of enduring. Time to leave self doubt behind and seize your ambitions, driving them before you – knowing your power and vulnerabilities makes you only more formidable! From Oct 22 Saturn in Sagittarius moves to the joyous 9th house of dharma, good fortune and learning – crystallising good fortune and greater ease from your efforts. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Taurus – Saturn has antagonised your sign since Nov 2014. The 7th house is the house of conflicts, relationships, the law and contracts. A difficult time being happy with your spouse, for those who are single a desolate period of finding a spouse or partner, and difficult relations with others. The persona and public reputation received ‘evil glance’ of Saturn at this time and you had to struggle for every little gain. The direct motion of Saturn moves you out of this territory. His movement into Sagittarius, although into the afflicted 8th house, being Sagittarius, brings the chance to work off debts, and improve your standing after this tough period. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Gemini – Saturn brings improvements to your health and employment after a difficult period of making headway or having to confront parts of your well-being you neglected up until Saturn’s influence forced you to face facts about your habits and self-care. Saturn moves into your 7th house of relationships and partnerships, being Sagittarius this mitigates many of the difficult aspects Saturn can bring to relationship – making commitments more solid, showing the lack of commitment in some cases, and helping you to clarify not only what you desire, but what you need in order to have a good, respectful and stable intimacy in your life. This significant relationship isn’t just committed partnership but also influences partnerships of any kind.Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Cancer – Saturn moves forward in your 5th house of romance, children and flirtation. A long period of romantic conflict and dissatisfaction is coming to a close for you. Saturn kept  bringing you back to earth everytime your heart tried to soar, this misery-guts influence while helpful in tempering your expectations of romantic fulfilment also helped you to see what really is of value in these relationships. If you’d put your needs/ambitions aside for love, Saturn called you on it. As Saturn moves forward into Sagittarius in late October he brings his accounting eye to your routines, healthcare and day-job helping you to finish tasks and cautioning you not to wriggle out of responsibility! If you work with him, he will help you reap many rewards. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Leo – Sunshiny Leo you’ve had an eclipse right over your sign and are mid Merc retro. Saturn turns direct  after 3 years in the 4th house of home, hearth and the Mother image. This has been a time of both solidifying your connection to roots, making a home for yourself and connection to place – but in coming home, close to the root of things, any lack, sorrow and the real responsibilities of settling in anyway have also shown up sharp and clear. Saturn moves forward into your friendly sign of Sagittarius from Oct 22 bringing solidity to your creative ideas, flirtations and romantic life. You may begin to impose order on all the things you ‘love’ – and you’ll learn both the values and the limits to that during this 3 year transit. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Virgo is ever the friend to Saturn, he is finishing up his work in your 3rd house of mind, communication and day-to-day action where he’s helped you make some of your ideas reality, but also brought an influence of mental solitude and hesitancy to really speak your mind. Not that you are prone to that dear Virgo – but he may have made you more black-and-white in your thinking during this time. Moving into your 4th house of home, hearth and mother, Saturn helps you feel more solid in relation to your family, fix your residence and encourage you to put some work in on establishing a solid foundation financially. With these steadying developments come necessary restrictions, but willing to economise as Virgo is, this is over all a productive period. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Libra and Saturn work well together, Saturn is exalted in your sign. The Libran love of harmony harmonises with the Saturnian love of order. Saturn leaves your finances and speech sector – after 3 years of very limited funds and big expenses – you can expect the transit into your 3rd house of mind, writing and intellect to help you rebuild after this difficult economic period. While Saturn remains in Scorpio make sure you establish long lasting habits of managing cash flow so you can make the most of those hard knock lessons you’ve had since Nov 2014. Saturn in Sagittarius brings steadier thinking and mental clarity – time to make a plan out and onward from Oct 22. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Scorpio – Saturn has been transiting your own sign since Nov 2014 – this has been a difficult and critical period for you as you were forced to get real and restructure your reality, down to the bed rock of your psyche, in order to understand who you really are and how you are projecting that image onto the world. Saturn also brought progress on the career front, a good time to make a name for yourself. But the searing self insight is hard to deal with! Saturn will move forward into your 2nd house of resources, money and speech from Oct 22, take care to order your finances but go steady – don’t stress – the work you do now will establish a sound basis of economy and management in the years ahead. Economise now, invest in education/higher learning if relevant, and keep your eye on the long-term goals. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Sagittarius – Saturn has been in the 12th house of your unconscious, secrets and longings. This is a difficult transit but also a spiritually productive time. By crystallising and bringing to the surface hopes, dreams and fears Saturn has helped you to understand the unconscious forces that drive your conscious actions. In knowing this, you know better how to act so you achieve goals and establish your reputation in life. From Oct 22 now transiting your ascendant/1st house, you will restructure your identity and how you project yourself upon the outer world. In knowing your unconscious you have come to know more about yourself, and now it’s time to restructure. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Capricorn – your ruling planet is Saturn so his transits don’t cause you the same conflicts they do most other sign. You are not in denial of the importance of discipline, responsibility and duty. Saturn in Scorpio has been limiting your social interactions and friendships since Nov 14, making you dissatisfied with people who aren’t ‘serious’ enough about the important things. You have received benefits from your career efforts but not necessarily in terms of cash rewards. However, being a Capricorn you can take the long view and see the value of what you have achieved. As Saturn moves into your 12th house get ready to explore the deepest parts of yourself and understand what really motivates your actions, allow yourself to be honest with yourself about your hopes and dreams. They don’t have to be ‘practical’ just listen to this inner voice and discover greater depths in you than you dreamed of. Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Aquarius – strange but also strangely pragmatic the Aquarian is also ruled by Saturn. You experience Saturn’s influence as an imperative to find the greatest common good and social responsibility/justice. Saturn has been transiting your 10th house of career, vocation and reputation. Any gains have been made through difficult emotional effort, you were asked to sacrifice much to achieve your goals. You have been hard headed and tenacious and the result wasn’t always fair but you got greater insight into your ideals vs. the ethics (or lack of) of the outer world. From Oct 22 Saturn moves into your 11th house of gains, social groups and friendship you will find around you those who are as committed as you are, you will find people who share your ethics and ideas. Good results from the challenges in your career you faced since Nov 2014 will find you.Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit 

Pisces – Saturn has been in another watery sign, Scorpio, since Nov 2014 – transiting your 9th house of spiritual ideals and higher learning, you have been undergoing a review of what you really believe and whether that is really, real and what is reality anyway etc. It can be a time of religious doubt, a dark night of the soul, but the direct motion of Saturn and transit to the 10th house of career, vocation and reputation helps you to make use of what you struggled over for 3 years and change careers, commitments or perspectives on what you are really called to do in your life. How you will then put these crystalised ideals into action will play out during Saturn’s transit in Sagittarius from Oct 22 until 2020.  Book Asha for more information on the effect of this transit

Love horoscope for New Moon month beginning August 21

Read by moon sign for the development of the soul/emotional effect, Sun sign for life direction/structure, Ascendant sign for your persona. These are SIDEREAL/VEDIC horoscopes.* 

Aries / Mesha
Birthstar: Ashwin – Bharani – Krittika 

The New Moon eclipse flares in your 5th house of romance, play and the children of your love (your actual kiddos or your dearest projects). Mercury in Leo retrograde is turning over new ideas and creating new clever connections between your bright ideas and helps you see opportunity in plain sight – go for it! You are able to communicate with (your) children and really understand them too – there are many creative and potential ideas coming to you – get them onto paper and light your world on fire with your inspiration. Venus blesses your 4th house of home, heritage and family. Venus in the 4th house brings a pleasant, peaceful and joyous atmosphere to the private life, bringing comfort and kindness in kinship and a peace with your ‘early story’. Your sense of belonging – and joy –  is strong this month. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Taurus / Vrishabha
Birthstar: Krittika – Rohini – Mrigashirsha
Venus is your ruler and all of her moves have a strong influence upon you. (Especially you, Rohini birthstar).  She is dancing into your 3rd house of communication and messages. Make your way in the world with your charming words smoothing the way, improve your standing in your career and charm your lover with genuine compliments and sweet messages. The New Moon Solar Eclipse fluoresces in Leo – your fourth house of home, roots and ancestry – expect big insights into those ‘family’ stories especially connection to Mother. Mercury is spinning here, in retrograde helping you to see things from the other side. Understanding connections to the Mother image and making peace with that – even finding sources of sweetness you didn’t expect you can now send down roots, steady as Taurus should be. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Gemini / Mithuna
Birthstar: Mrigashirsha – Ardra – Punavarsu
Your ruler Mercury is in retrograde in your 3rd house gets you to think big about what is possible for you – you realise you’ve been locked into little flutters of interest rather than forming solid plans or ideas. Venus moves graciously into the 2nd house of income, resources and what you’ve got – and doesn’t she help you to make the most of it! She brings steady nurturance and comfort to love and encourages you to get your finances in better shape with your mate. Time to consider what comfort means to you – hint: it’s more than just constant, changing, excitement (Gemini’s favourite thing!).  It’s a good month for prosperity if you don’t let it all flow through your quick fingers. The Solar Eclipse shadows and then reveals a method of thinking, obsessing or communicating that has been holding you back and that you are ready to release in your sparkly Gemini way – once you decide – in an instant it vanishes. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Cancer / Karka
Birthstar: Punavarsu – Pushyami – Ashlesha
Venus enters your sign my love! Sweetness, heart connection and your own loving heart fill and overflow. You see strength in this softness and begin to make the deep water you carry work for you – you listen to the tide, move upon it and respect the mysteries you carry. A blessed month for all kinds of relationships, you celebrate your beauty and carry more charm than usual. Mercury retro in the 2nd house has you rethinking the best ways to boost your income and maximise your resources but also understanding what your family has brought you to establish you in life. The Solar eclipse flashes in the 2nd house too – you feel a pressure to start really taking your finances and your own value seriously. This month you begin to realise how much value you have to others and most of all YOU feel it too. Rahu the North Lunar node enters your sign for the next 18 months and you will be transforming, coming to terms with your power and bringing jewels up from your oceanic depths. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Leo / Simha
Birthstar: Magha – Purva Phalguni – Uttara Phalguni
The Mercury retrograde and the Solar Eclipse flash right over you dearest Lions! Especially those born in the first 13 degrees of the sign (Magha birthstar). You experience a shadow of self doubt as Rahu (north node) crosses your ruling planet the Sun on the day of eclipse. Mercury’s retrograde has put your self-concept into review, too. You are beginning again, royal one! The famed Leo confidence requires true self awareness to be really as bright as the sun. Allow the doubt to reveal what is hidden, face it and transform. Rahu leaves your sign from hereon in – so the next 18 months will be less hectic than the last when the karmic axis has been acting on you (and Aquarius) with serpentine focus. Venus graces your 12th house, helping you to release and transform memories, fears and secrets about love and how much you need it, into sweetness. Instead of haunting you, you will see these experiences change from sorrow to reveal sweet gifts – albeit unexpected – underneath. A 2 1/2 year cycle in love and relationships is winding up, self concept is transforming, you emerge ready to reign. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Virgo / Kanya
Birthstar: Uttara Phalguni – Hasta- Chitra
Venus brings you new and renewed social connections and fruits from your efforts, easing social anxieties and increasing confidence with positive reinforcement for efforts made in your career. This is a time of pleasant parties, social grace, beautiful adornment bringing an increasing happiness in yourself and your friendship. Mercury your ruler is retrograde in Leo shining a light into those parts of your psyche you don’t normally spend much time in – the murky unconscious. The Solar Eclipse in Leo brings to light the unconscious habits, or fears, which inhibit your self confidence – the reveal is simple, joyous and brings some relief even if it’s not what you expected. You don’t have to live with ‘the secret’ or ‘the doubt’ plaguing you. You don’t have to understand it and organise it to be able to release it. It can just go. Be light with yourself, allow yourself to blossom in your gentle Virgoan way. Next month this understanding will help you create new, confident self concept and let go of memories that limit your happiness.Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Libra / Thula
Birthstar: Chitra – Swati – Vishakha 
Venus rules your sign sweetest Libra graces your 10th house of career and reputation this month – make the most of it! You are well received and appreciated for your skills, grace and beauty.

The Mercury retrograde combined with the eclipse helps you get un-stuck so that your heart can open to the joyous optimism that life has to offer. You are able to face truths about what you really want for yourself as an individual and in your relationships and to just simply change plans and work towards it. Venus shines in opposition to Capricorn in Cancer – blessing your marriage/committed relationships, bringing the opportunity to move deeper in your relationship.

 Aquarius / Kumbha
Birthstar: Dhanishta – Shatabishak – Purva Bhadrapada 
Oooh! Breathe a sigh of relief, Lord Ketu the south lunar node is leaving your sign and moving into Capricorn. This last 18 months has forced you to confront fixed ideas about yourself that need to be released, having your needs met were difficult during this period. The Solar eclipse illuminates your 7th house – you stop self-negating and you can begin a new stage with your partner or begin a new significant relationship, where you get to shine too. Mercury retrograde in the 7th house of Leo has also helped you see how your egalitarian ways may not work so well in a partnership – it’s ok to want things for you, and you must ask for them – this brings true equality to friendships and love. Venus brings peace and beauty to your 6th house of health, routine and obstructions. The day job is easier/more pleasant and may bring opportunities for a better role or more income, your health improves and frustrations ease. Things don’t bother you and you are able to get over blocks to connection that have kept you at a distance from who and what you want.  Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here 

Pisces / Meena
Birthstar: Purva Bhadrapada – Uttara Bhadrapada – Revati
Oh gentle dreamer, Venus forms harmonious aspect to your sign while she floats through Cancer. She graces your 5th house of love and romance, she brings you sweetness, child-like faith and trust in love, healing, hope and renewal, I know you need it. Mercury retro has asked you to look closely at your health routines and how much you are giving to others. The shadow of the eclipse brings these sorrows up to your consciousness but the illumination that follows releases this pain with a laugh, the warm sunlight floods back and you can smell the perfume of spring blossoms – “Oh that is done! It is time for love!” and the love you dream of my sweet, it is real, you just would not go to where it was, you expected others to love as sweetly as you do. They will not always do that – so you must seek wisely, deeply intuitive – serve your instincts as well as your spirit. Book a full love or transit reading with Asha here

As if 2 eclipses and Saturn direct, Rahu/Ketu changing signs wasn’t enough this month Mercury is also going retrograde in Leo on August 13, 2017. Mercury/Lord Budh is the illuminator of our intelligence, fast moving, youthful and energetic. The love child of Moon and Tara – Jupiter’s wife, Jupiter is wisdom but Mercury is the wit that leads to exciting insights and ideas. In the royal sign of Leo we experience great ideas that can expand our kingdom, warm and effusive communication, and good news.


Mercury in Leo gives us a mental confidence boost. He makes our words grand, loyal and a little over-the-top. We have big plans and our perspectives broaden – we are confident to try new ideas and challenge mental habits to form a new, more positive self-concept.  Take care not to over promise, you may cause mischief for yourself if you cannot deliver!

The retrograde period brings a review in any leadership roles you posses and the house placement of Leo in your natal chart will show you the area of life under review (check out the horoscopes below). Watch that tongue doesn’t get you in trouble – don’t give imperial commands – especially as Mercury aligns with the Sun twice during this transit!

Mercury retrograde periods are a time of turning our logic, speech and intelligence inward. We are more reflective and hesitant to speak – if you are born with natal Mercury retrograde then you find yourself able to express what’s on your mind. Mercury retrograde is a time of mischief and mistakes, we either speak too quickly or can’t straighten out our thoughts or blurt out things better left unsaid, especially as Mercury approaches conjunction to the Sun. Mercury aligning with the Sun August 21 to September 3 = speaking hot words.

horoscopes

Read by your moon sign for most accurate forecast.

Aries: Mercury retro in the 5th house of creativity brings good news re lovers and romance. If you have children you will be rethinking your approach and working to improve your relationship. Leo is in harmonious aspect to your sign making the big ideas spark. Spend time researching what you need to make your grand ideas successful realities.

Taurus: Mercury retro in the 4th house helps you to find your place as Queen of the kingdom in your home and settle into your status in your family – or fight for it! Pleasant times with Mum or coming from the mother’s family. A huge revision of what really sustains you, from the roots up, is under way.

Gemini: Mercury retro in your 3rd house of mind, communication and ideas gets you to think big about what is possible for you. Striking out independently, your written work and communication gets a creative confidence boost. It’s time to step up your career ambitions and make a name for yourself.

Cancer : Mercury retro in the 2nd house has you rethinking the best ways to boost your income and maximise your resources. Ever the careful planner, time to think and review your long term goals and align it with what you want to achieve materially so you can spoil those most important to you – family, and yourself of course.

Leo : Mercury transits your own sign communicating the intelligence of your Leo planets to your conscious mind. You arrive at a greater understanding of yourself and your life direction. Time to review how you are expressing your persona to the outside world. The end of the retrograde brings a sense of ‘new you’ and new self confidence.

Virgo : Mercury, your ruler, works to bring insight into those parts of your psyche you don’t normally spend much time in – the murky unconscious. Time to make sense of your past and identify the unconscious habits which inhibit your self confidence. Create new, confident self concept and let go of memories that limit your happiness.

Libra: Mercury retrograde in your 11th house brings friends together, helping to revise your approach to your career and how to maximise gains from what your create. Mercury rules your 12th and 9th houses and the retrograde helps piece together understanding about deep inner work and your long term vision.

Scorpio: Mercury goes retro in your 10th house of career and vocation. New ideas, brain waves and unexpected news lead you to revise your plans. Don’t act til you have all the information, tenacious Scorpio, wait patiently until the direct motion of Mercury shows you where to strike to achieve success.

Sagittarius: Mercury retro in Leo brings heat and light to the 9th house of travel, highest ideals and philosophy.  Reversals in plans for travel and study can be expected but work with it, somehow you’ve drifted a little off your path. Mercury direct will bring fresh insight, the brakes need to go on, so that you can recalibrate and head in the right direction and achieve your goals.

Capricorn: Mercury in Leo brings reviews the 8th house of intimacy and debts. Look over your financial obligations and check that shared effort, is actually shared. A good time to look at your debts, material & emotional and reorganise yourself so you can manage them better. A time of contradictions, be patient and allow Mercury to throw light on the situation.

Aquarius: Mercury retro exposes issues in your 7th house of partnership and closest friendships. Mercury guides you to look from a different perspective, challenging fixed ideas about yourself and your other/s. Make sure you also discover more about your own needs, fair-minded Aqua, and express them. This will improve communication with your dear ones and lead to more balanced relationships.

Pisces: Mercury asks you to look closely at your health routines and how much you are giving to others. Too much (over devoted Pisces)? Or too passive (avoidant and absent)? How much time/energy/resources do you have to deliver what you wish you could give? It’s time to make changes in how you are organising your life, sometimes saying no makes space for more happiness, allowing you to say ‘yes’ to what matters.

diana the huntress 2
Charles Edward Hallé (English painter), 1846 – 1914, The Archer

The moon is still waxing full but shines bright tonight in Sagittarius. The archer constellation beams the energy of wisdom and love of discovery, expanding hearts and hopes after a week of friction and frustations. The full moon aligns exactly with Purva Ashadha star (part of Sagittarius) the star of victory and righteousness. In Vedic tradition this night is called Guru Poornima, the full moon dedicated to the greater blessing planet, Jupiter/Guru. No matter where you are at right now, the Full Moon will bring good fortune. This is a sacred night to give thanks to teachers and wise guides who have helped you come to awareness so far. It is time to expand your expectations for your life and your perceptions of what is possible. We are asked to be willing to take a wise risk, to make the effort to improve and discover more about ourselves. Students, teachers and philosophers can ask for blessing on their work tonight.

The last phase of Saturn in Scorpio retrograde has brought into clear focus just how much we trip ourselves up and undo our efforts with habits of fear and reaction. The tense angles between Sun, Mars, Mercury (in Gemini) and Pluto (in Sagittarius) have been fraying tempers, nerves and patience all week, softening with Mercury’s ingress into Cancer a few days ago. Saturn’s steady, awe-ful work has been solidifying things, turning them over, showing those blockages and self-limiting actions so clearly. Now, it is time to let go. No more going over. Look beyond instead.

Karmas are crystallising, painfully clear. But, we are in the Sagittarius month it is time to let loose the arrow from the bow. The bow is drawn with tension, it’s only then the arrow can fly. This Full moon opposes Mars in high heat in Gemini, aligned to Sun. Mercury has moved out of this tight aspect into gentler Cancer helping us get in touch with how we feel about all this self-realisation. At the same time the sentimental seas of Cancer can overwhelm the mind making it hard to understand the reasons for our reactions. Sometimes there doesn’t have to be any other need than the need to flow, be felt and dissipate.

Sagittarius Full Moon is about the love of the quest. The adventure, the chance to stretch our legs in open country can be a joyous experience, but it is always provoked in the first place by a problem or need to move on from where we were. This week I know many of us felt entangled in Saturn’s machinations and the Mars/Pluto opposition. Hovering somewhere between threatening chaos and a sudden, brave leap to change, remember that these tensions are necessary and essential to the adventure.

Seek illumination and wisdom wherever you find yourself in your story. If you are the hero lost in the dark, remember that all heroes in all stories are hopelessly lost in the moments before their success. It is always in the moment of despair that she discovers her capacities, talent or the purpose of the Quest.

If you have lost your way, pause and see if you can find a wise guide at the next stile or crossroads – but beware the tricksters too! If you have reached the end of one situation, set your face with determination towards the rising moon and head out into new territory. There will be adventures, intoxicating lovers, combatants, bad guys and treasures on your path…there always are. But staying where you are is no longer an option. Remember what has been taught you, give thanks to your teachers and remain curious about the road ahead. Infinite potentials blossom wildly either side of the path at your feet, curving around the hill, over a mountain and into your destiny.

Aries  Full moon shines bright in your 9th house of joy, adventure and education. With your ruler Mars in opposition to the Moon you are confronted with frustrations in the daily routine of life that seem to block your moves towards the VISION. Look to the horizon, remember the adventure and channel that frustrated energy into your highest ideals. Do the detailed work but get moving again. Don’t get caught up in petty concerns, remember how high you can soar when you let your heart dream big. Venus blesses your 2nd house of resources but Saturn retro is inhibiting her good effects – however Venus is also hampering some of the losses Saturn might otherwise bring. There can be tensions and suffering for a loved one, just keep supporting, Saturn direct will bring things back to a steadier track in August, just keep active, inspiring and working towards the dream. You carry all before you with your enthusiasm once you get to work.  Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Taurus  Lovely Venus, your ruler, continues to grace your sign, softening some of the inner struggles brought to light by the full moon in your 8th house of intimacy, emotional conflicts and secret passions. Your feelings are affecting your thinking profoundly – as Mercury transits Cancer you can gain much by observing and understanding, sitting with those surges of emotion. You are a sensuous creature but you can struggle to name your feelings, Mercury is making you a little uncomfortable but will help to bring things to the surface to be released so you can settle into enjoying Venus’ blessings. Saturn continues to retrograde into your 7th house bringing you back into habits with your significant other/closest people that can have you feeling like you’ve lost ground. You are consolidating, be gentle with yourself. Saturn will cease to afflict so much come August when he turns direct again. Venus blesses you all month, making you beautify and care for yourself, keep building up the love and self-care and everything else will ease.  Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Gemini  Mars and Sun in yor sign opposes the Full Moon, busying your social life with strange coincidences and unexpected thoughts. Fateful connections, especially in terms of your relationships come to light. You are being invited to let go of old habits and hurts in love and get moving again, towards what you desire. Mercury your ruler is in moody Cancer pushing you beyond what you think you feel, right into those feelings. You would probably rather say something hilarious and deflect, but have the patience to let the feelings speak so you can understand what was brought to a crisis this week. Enjoy the lighter vibes of the full moon – Venus is in your 12th house helping you to release the stuff holding you back from the connections you really long for. Book your with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Cancer  The Moon influences Cancerians most of all. You ebb and flow, sensing and feeling so much. This is your gift, but at times it’s overwhelming. Mercury in your sign will help to bring a little bit of detachment and  the right words to say what you’ve been feeling. Just keep in mind that Mars and Pluto in opposition across your 12th and 6th house aspect heighten the risk of you just suddenly letting it all out at once – while this approach will clear the air and ease your frustration it may have consequences too disruptive for your tastes. Let the full moon show you the wise path to dealing with the obstacles in your life and apply the right knowledge to issues on the job which have been stressing you. Venus graces your friendship sector, it’s a good time to reconnect and enjoy these sweet connections. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Leo  The Full moon forms beautiful aspect to your sign dear Lion renewing a sense of optimism and joy and encouraging flirtatious mischief by the silvery light of the moon. The influence of Pluto can help you experience a moment of deep, soul shattering insight into your approach to love and desire. Mars opposing provokes you to stand in your sovereignty and stop accepting friendships and flirtations that are less than reciprocal. Take care to avoid overdoing it with telling friends exactly why you are so fed up with things, instead pay attention to the irritation and make different choices about where and with whom you are investing your time. We love our lions, but we’re all scared of that ROARR! Mercury in Cancer will help you understand the unconscious and repressed feelings motivating these changes. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Virgo  Your work life has been busy and perhaps a little tense as your ruler and Mars have been tangling there since the New moon 2 wks ago. Your ruler has now moved into the easier 11th house bringing gentler times socially. The full moon in your 3rd house brings you a beautiful clarity of mind and those of your working on detailed projects requiring diligent focus or study will make good ground in the coming weeks. Venus is in harmonious aspect to your sign in your 9th house of good fortune, luck and higher learning this means the 2 blessing planets form good aspect – gentle, happy but steady gains for you! Any higher learning or professional development undertaken will be blessed by this aspect and bring good results. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Libra Venus rules your sign and she brings passion and intrigue to your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. If you are in a relationship you’ll be finding new grace in sharing life with your partner, despite the tension of Saturn retrograde who is making money a little thin on the ground. You are discovering new ways to enjoy life that don’t require too much liquid cash. This creates a new agreement and understanding that takes your heart connections to the next phase. The Full Moon is in your 3rd house of communication, ideas and courage. It’s time to think beyond your usual care and consideration. Being able to rely on others – whether they are a dear friend or life partner – means you need to change how you have been thinking about what is possible for you. Don’t let your love of peace become stasis, keep seeking more beauty! Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Scorpio Saturn is grinding his gears in retrograde in your sign, but you’re a Scorpio, you can deal with harsh realities because you can look into the depths of yourself unflinchingly and still commit to change. Thing is, that’s an old habit of severity and intensity you’ve gotten into the last 2.5 years. Despite the bubbling tensions of Mars, this full moon provokes you to think of a different way of dealing with these confrontations than the Scorpio preferred method of BURN IT ALL DOWN AND ARISE AGAIN. Sagittarius offers you a different path. No sacrifice, no suffering, no torturous soul searching required, bounty is all about you. Just turn right and head on down the road. Are you ready to do things with a light heart? (Do you need to learn how to do that?). Venus graces your house of relationships helping to melt your hard outer armour and to express the powers of your being in a gentler way. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Sagittarius  This is your full moon dear Archers and everyone is up there in high feeling with you! You can see the whole picture from up here – the little frustrations and tensions of Mars opposing have their place in getting you to deal with the detail work and necessary actions you need to achieve the big vision. They may have even manifested as physical injuries or verbal conflict with spouse/partner, but don’t let this cause you to bolt or sulk. The tension is the necessary taut string releasing the arrow of your vision. When Mars moves into Cancer in a few weeks you will feel some relief from issues with your partner. Saturn has gone back into your twelfth house and is hard at work tying up the loose ends to the period of spiritual wisdom you have been learning since Nov 2014. Remember the power of faith you have cultivated and that Saturn’s retrograde is just stirring up the old doubts one last time. This is a final test of the integrity of your ideals before Saturn moves into your sign making your visions a reality in late 2017. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Capricorn The Full moon shines bright in the 12th house of the mysteries of life. Pay attention to your dreaming, your inner self needs to speak to your ever pragmatic day time self. Saturn, your ruler, is retrograde in Scorpio replaying a sense of social isolation that was dissipating for you, but it is dissipating, and will be played out  by October. Don’t let it get you down too much, nor allow the Sun and Mars in your 6th house make you too stressed at work. Set limits and keep your eyes on your long term strategy. Venus is in glowing aspect to your sign, bringing her blessings to your home and domestic life. Although you may be feeling restricted socially and frustrated at work, drink in the comforts of home and family. After all, this is what the Capricorn does it all for – they build a better world for their kin to flourish in. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Aquarius Full Moons buzz you sensitive space creatures more than most of us, you seemingly flow to a whole other rhythm and time…you know long before the rest of us arrive! The Full Moon glows bringing many friends, adventures, outings and happy connections. Your ruler Saturn is retro in Scorpio one last time helping you to really understand and put to bed conflicts around your calling in life and issues with your father/father’s family. You are becoming stronger in your own sense of purpose and destiny, even if others don’t quite get why you might be on the path you are on. Mars brings energy and focus to your 5th house of creativity and self expression giving you an extra dash of courage to be you without apology or fear. Venus graces your 6th house of health and healing, helping you to recover any nervous tension and bringing a brighter atmosphere at work. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.
Pisces Beautiful dreamer, this is the Full Moon of your brother sign, Sagittarius. You are both ruled by Jupiter/Guru and this is a special moon for you, it’s more soulful and philosophical than adventurous but it lifts you to a new peace and calm with the world and your place in it. The Full Moon shines bright in your 10th house of calling and career. Know that you are on the right path, have faith in your vision and lead the rest of us to understand. Jupiter continues to bless your 7th house of relationships until September helping you find common ground and happiness with your partner. If you are not in a committed relationship Jupiter blesses partnership and business endeavours and improves your reputation. Venus is in your 3rd house making it easier to communicate your needs and desires, in hugs; touches that bring warmth and gentleness. Book with Asha here for your reading unique to your birth chart.

hedy lamarr new moon

The New Moon occurs tomorrow June 24 (AEST) in sparkling Gemini. We are deep in the Winter solstice here in the south and my northern friends you are at high summer – it is a time of pause, consideration and reflection before a change in tide. For those in Winter, we are at the point of the ebb, stillness and quiet. For those dancing high Summer you are at the highest, brightest point of the year – the climactic moment.

Mercury, the lord of intelligence, rules this new Moon and is in his own sign of Gemini. Mercury is bringing us so many “a-ha!” moments as we stand on the threshold of “then” and now. He aligns exactly with the new moon and the Sun and Mars. Moon, our satellite, beams their energies of intelligence, vitality and courage to us and the principle of courageous curiosity will be with us all lunar month. If we have the courage to look, listen and engage with these discoveries we can take a new, fresh path. Have the confidence to think critically, seeking clear sight into our circumstances personally, in our families, town and wider world. Let’s have the courage to shrug off the habits borne of our experiences, it’s time to take a left (or a right) at the crossroads, into new territory.

Saturn is retrograde on the knot between Sagittarius and Scorpio repeating in reverse the events of late January. The consequences for actions emerge, the tide flows back bringing to shore the results of our efforts. We reap what we have sown during the whole Saturn in Scorpio transit which began in November 2014. Although Saturn doesn’t turn direct until August and re-enter Sagittarius until October, this is a time when we see the “big issue” really has come to a close. It is a sensitive moment, we can keep living the same patterns or we can kick the same habits off again for another round. Attune to the clear intelligence of this New Moon and have the courage to think differently, to try a new way of being. Explore new ways of communicating and relinquish the old habits. Habitual responses are the impact marks of our experiences. If we want to leave the shadows of the experiences behind we need to kick their habits too. The eclipses in August will help you to release these new perspectives into being but now is the time to look over, understand and synthesise what has happened during the Saturn in Scorpio transit.

Each Saturn transit lasts about 2.5 years and his movement through Scorpio makes the truths of our life painfully real. We are torn to pieces by Saturn’s steady action and made to see the root cause of our behaviour and the consequences are paid out and played out. If we can grow through it instead of thrashing against it, we reap a bountiful harvest. The struggle transforms through Saturn’s steady accounting into wisdom and understanding. This understanding brings freedom – the freedom from the story and the freedom to choose differently in the days and years ahead. This last Scorpio Saturn transit brings the chance to really see and understand the roots causes and consequences of this time and to free ourselves from these burdens – from blame, guilt, frustration and habit.

Our experiences certainly shape us, but we must not lose our essential form to that process – we must strive to remember our values, abilities and destiny despite the events of our lives, not live in reaction to those events believing those reactions are our true nature.

Gemini or Mithuna is a sparkling, vital energy that seeks to unite the initiative of Aries with the substance of Taurus in the 3rd sign Gemini. The lovers, the twin flames, the anima and the animus, the soul and the mind – these are the principles of duality that the Gemini New Moon brings. Continue on your quest to know thyself, seek the shadow magic of your brightness and the gifts in your sorrows – know yourself and take the path ahead with courage.

Aries : The new moon and Mercury, Sun and Mars in your 3rd house of mind, communication and siblings. This month will be a busy one with a focus on back-and-forth emails, messages, calls and communication. Make time to enjoy this busy, electric energy with friends not just work and study. Take care not to get heated in your speech as things can get out of hand quickly. As Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio a difficult aspects bringing health problems, frustration and dour mood can revisit. Take care not to over extend yourself and direct your energy towards a steady spiritual practise applying the experiences of the earlier part of the Saturn in Scorpio transit will help you make the most of this temporary reversal from this time.

Taurus: This New Moon sees you refocusing your values around money, resources and what constitutes comfort. You are willing to think differently about how you use what you have and to see the value in the long-term vision. With your ruler still in the 12th house in Aries for a little while longer you can expect to feel a bit of a pinch financially for a few more weeks. As Venus transits your sign from June 30, by Full Moon things will get a little more comfortable and lovely. Saturn moves back into your 7th house in retrograde beginning the “wrap it up” work of a significant marital or relationship issue that has been plaguing you since about November 2014. From October new vibes in your partnerships begin, but for now it’s about understanding this matter with a bit of critical distance and making peace with what has passed.

GeminiThis is your new moon! A time of new beginnings with your ruler also in the sign and go-get ’em Mars you experience a kick forward in your confidence and renewed energy to drive towards your goals. Any adventures you undertake will connect you with new acquaintances and reconnect you with friends who bring you joy and lightness. Reinvent yourself and renew your interest in YOU. Saturn moves retrograde into your 6th house after encroaching a little on the 7th house, Sagittarius. Take care of your health and look over those obstacles to your well-being and issues in your employment/day job from a different perspective. Take action to implement better habits and care for yourself especially avoiding overwork, even the high powered Gemini has an end to their energy!

Cancer Sensitive to every movement of the moon you ebb and flow. This New Moon takes place in the 12th house of the unconscious and letting go. The brilliant insight of Gemini turns inward and you can understand unconscious habits and behaviours that you need to release in order to begin anew at the next new moon. This is a quiet time outwardly but a busy time inwardly, your dreams help you to release these emotional knots and gain spiritual insight and dissolving ideas that are limiting your happiness and your potential. Saturn moves back into your 9th house bringing pressure on the study front, delaying travel and bringing critical perspectives on faith and belief. It’s time to take an integrative approach to these problems and let go of ideas that no longer align with who you’ve grown into.

Leo Royal and bold, it’s time to re-emerge in your social groups and networks and take your place. You are the centre of attention a lot of the time and this isn’t always what you want – but part of being a leader is to understand that leadership is as necessary a role as being a member of a group. Get out and about now, explore and enjoy – being in charge can be tiring, find others who get what that’s like and you’ll be able to recharge and renew your energy. Saturn moves in retrograde back into your 4th house bringing to a close difficult issues and blockages in the home environment and to do with your physical home/property too. You can expect these matters to move forward for good from October. Until Saturn leaves Scorpio take the time to look about you, be economical and cut your losses so you can make the most of your efforts at home and with your family of origin when Saturn goes direct in August.

Virgo The focus this month is on your career and reputation. Work matters speed up and you’ll get the most out of this month by planning and re-planning your approach to your career and your public standing. You have the opportunity to seize new opportunities that can move your goals forward, but these won’t really be clear to you until the huge shift in August triggered by the eclipses. Saturn moves back into your 3rd house making you reticent to take risks or be too active socially, but this heaviness will lift again by October. You will need to be mindful of your tendency to be too reticent speaking and communicating to move your career ambitions forward.  The Gemini energy encourages you to be more willing to explore the possible rather than what is reasonable.

Libra Your ruler Venus is in the 7th house of relationships until June 30 continuing her sweetening influence on your significant relationships and bringing grace and sweetness to the committed partnerships in your life. From June 30 Venus moves into the mysterious 8th house bringing and improvement in your mood, sexual intimacy and material comforts received through the efforts of your partner. The New moon is also in an airy sign, in your 9th house of higher learning, philosophy and religious ideals. If you are studying you learn quickly and delight in new knowledge. You are curious and willing to consider new ways of thinking about the big questions of life. Saturn moves back into your 2nd house creating a bit of a pinch materially but you’re probably used to that after 2.5 years of it! Take the lessons you’ve learned from that time and remember to apply better resource management of money, time, love and energy from here on in!

Scorpio The New Moon appears in your 8th house – the truth of intimate relationships, understanding of your secret, innermost nature become clear to you, you understand your actions, unconscious desires and what you need to really connect with the others in your life. You may also come to an understanding of how the wounds you carry are interfering with the real connection you seek. With Saturn moving back into Scorpio you revisit the old pains of the last 2.5 years but the new moon helps you to understand the routes and source of this difficulty. This brings relief and release and next month you will feel more confident to reach out and build new relationships. For now, be gentle, seek and understand but don’t judge yourself. Your ruler Mars helps the insights flow thick and fast and bring radical change that will leave the end of 2018 as a much happier and easier time for you.

Sagittarius The New Moon is in your 7th house of relationships – you are all about your “other” this month and perhaps some of your Sagittarian obtuseness about your partner’s needs is assisted by the clever Gemini insights to improve the connection and happiness in your committed relationships. If you are single at the moment, you’ll get insight into the habits and behaviours keeping you from finding the right kind of partnership for the free-spirited Sagittarian. Your ruler Jupiter turned direct early in June so you begin to feel more yourself again. Saturn revisiting your 12th house can bring those self-doubts, self-sabotaging behaviours and avoidance into clear focus – as Saturn goes direct after August it’s time to accept, understand and change those patterns that keep tripping you up and dampening your natural happy, optimistic attitude.

Capricorn Your ruler Saturn is in retrograde in your 11th house and it may feel a little like everything you’ve been driving towards has slid backwards once again. It is a good time to check the foundations of your plans, apply a critical eye to your ambitions and see what is missing from your strategies, take steps to reinforce any vulnerable points. After October Saturn will move into the 12th house and stop blocking the gains from your efforts you began to glimpse at the end of January. The New Moon in Gemini brings renewal to your 6th house of routine, health and your day job. A new diet plan, exercise strategy or work schedule will stand you in good stead for the coming weeks and months. You are willing to think laterally, not just critically, about this area of your life.

Aquarius The New moon appears in your 5th house of romance, creativity, leisure and children. The focus this month is on your children, whether they be actual bubs or your pet projects. The combination of Gemini energy and focus on the 5th house makes you flirty, cheeky and interested in romance – given that you are a space-cadet of the first order dear Aquarius it’s important to remember that not everyone has your broad minded, liberated ideals about such things and take care not to cause yourself too much mischief! You feel good about yourself and are excited about the opportunities for self exploration and expression that romance and creativity offer you. Saturn moves in retrograde into your 10th house of career and reputation slowing matters down once again, but also bringing results to the surface – finally! –  from your hard work in the last 2.5 years.

Pisces Sweet dreamers, the new moon is in your 4th house of home, roots and family. You may be feeling an acute need to nestle under a blankie with your loved ones and in your wistful Pisces way, far from home. This New moon challenges you to think about what home really means for you and what is important to you, at the most root level, for you to flourish and grow. Sudden insights and a flash of awareness combine with a determination to speak to what you feel rather than just letting it flow around you in an undifferentiated sea of feeling and longing. Saturn moves in retrograde into your 9th house of higher ideals. Combined with the insight about home and roots, you have some pretty solid realisations that you might have been so rigid in your lofty ideals that you couldn’t see the details of your situation. Don’t be rueful, instead understand how much you’ve grown since November 2014 and that this is the purpose of the philosophical quest, to change through understanding both your potential and your limits.  Then you can lead a truly magical life.
