The Queen and the Duke, Spinning Plates and Venus’ New Cycle

Breaking news astrologically, a copy of the Duke’s birth certificate, in Greek as he was born in Corfu. This made me smile – how very typical of a double Gemini to have two different times of birth and therefore two charts. But more importantly this is fascinating symbolically as the new chart changes the Ascendant to Leo … The synastry between the Duke and the Queen is also strengthened as this new chart shows that their Leo Moons are now in fact only 3 degrees apart.

Living with Uncertainty, the Power of You & Clean Slates

Mercury arriving in Aries at the weekend is another opportunity to start afresh, with a clean slate and an open mind. Whatever is important for you, there’ll be no time to waste as Mercury is going to fly through this sign in just two weeks. Some matters will just naturally unfold at breakneck speed anyway so another pointer for this week is to clear the decks and get ahead.

Obstacle Courses, the Power of Love Sun – Venus conjunction and the Libra Full Moon

New romance is “well starred” and could even get off to a sizzling start but whatever your own relationship status or situation this weekend is one to watch, especially as Venus is also aligned with the Full Moon in Libra, sign of the Scales. This is so often described as the sign of indecision but more importantly the Scales symbolize partnership. What one side does automatically affects the other.

Facing Facts, Finding a Path through Pain & All Eyes on the Spring Equinox

It’s been a long cold journey this year, but the blaze of the long awaited Spring Equinox is now just days away.This is the moment when the Sun enters Aries, his sign of “exaltation” (best placing), the first sign of the zodiac and the official beginning of the astrological New Year. It’s fabulous for individuation – in other words, anything that gets you back to you, anything that reconnects you with your sense of self, a healthy ego state, positive self esteem and a sense of entitlement.
