It’s an intriguing week. Let me start by saying that major aspects can often make themselves felt during the couple of days before they’re exact. For example, this morning we have Venus square Saturn (exact at 08.45 GMT). As Venus is love, money, pleasure and the sweet things of life, and as Saturn’s nature by tough aspect is to deny or delay, then any issue that is described by this aspect will probably have been especially poignant over the weekend. I’m dedicating this blog – my first on the new website – to my wonderful brother in law who will know exactly what I’m talking about.
We then move into a flurry of activity as Mercury, Mars and Pluto align with each other from around midday today until Wednesday morning. This is a promising combination for tough talk, finding answers and cracking on with any plan of action with no messing!
Venus moves into Leo on Thursday afternoon – this is not one of Venus’ recognised signs of dignity but I do like this placing. Venus in the Sun’s sign is all about the glory and vitality of love, and lessons in how to claim or give extra attention as needed. From Friday it’s yet another change of theme with jolly Jupiter taking the lead role all the way through the weekend. Enjoy but with squares to the Sun and Mercury as part of the picture it’s wise to guard against going over the top in word or deed.
Finally a huge thank you to Lynne Stainthorpe who is the mastermind behind the new website and responsible for shoving me into 21st century technology – I am in awe of your creativity and know how.

What’s the astrological picture of the moment?
Three major themes:
1. Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Aquarius (04.27 BST) is swiftly followed by the Sun sextile (harmonious) Jupiter (10.57 BST). This pattern is full of promise and unfolding events will be those that pave the way to lucky opportunities/liberation/education and the resolution of legal and justice concerns.
2. Mischievous Mercury is still, however, retrograde… and will turn direct next Wednesday 8 August (06.41 BST). Expect details to start slotting into place on that date, or 48 hours either side.
3. Mercury getting back on track coincides with the end of Venus’ unusually long journey through Gemini, which started at the beginning of April. As Gemini is one of Mercury’s own signs this rather underlines the theme of new cycles in the making, especially those characterized by key choices or decisions. Whatever has been complicated or unsure in your life in recent weeks – or months – or whatever has required the waiting game should now be reaching a finale.
