In our day to day lives Uranus is quite simply the X factor, totally unpredictable but guaranteed to throw unexpected spanners in the works and upend the best laid plans… and in the run-up so far all I can say is that I’m hearing my own words, ie I always say Uranus is unknowable but you will know when he arrives!
Weekly insights into the stars
Mercury in a Bad Mood, Jupiter’s Turning Point and New Moon in Leo (Horoscopes: Elon Musk, Liz Truss)
In traditional astrology Mars is known as “the lesser malefic” while Saturn is known as “the greater malefic”. Scary titles but we don’t have to associate them with the stuff of nightmares. Their job is either to screw things up or to show us where the work is needed. Here are the challenges and effort of life.
Jupiter Slowing Down, Sun and Mercury into Leo, J-Lo, Ben Affleck & Chiron (Horoscopes: Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck)
At a universal or personal level look out for turning points that carry the hallmarks of Jupiter, such as rethinks or replanning anything in connection to travel, overseas or at a distance, moving, education or legal concerns.
Also don’t bite off more than you can chew, especially as “over the top” Jupiter is making the semi square to sensible Saturn.
Mars & Mercury New Cycles, Uranus in the Mix & some Wimbledon Synastry (Horoscopes: Calvin Coolidge, Amanda Gorman, Nick Kyrgios, Stefanos Tsitsipas)
Calvin Coolidge (b 4 July 1872) was a staunch supporter of racial equality and women’s rights. Maybe someone should remind The Supreme Court of this fact. I nominate Amanda Gorman for the job … in her powerful poem delivered in her now trademark punchy, “listen to me” style she echoes everything I said last week about power, control and patriarchy. She is Lilith and Pallas come to life, with her 1st House Lilith and Pallas conjunct her Descendant.
2022 Retrograde Cycles, New Moon in Cancer, Pallas & Lilith (Horoscopes: the USA, the Supreme Court announcement, Ruth Bader Ginsburg)
The relevance of Lilith at the moment is that she’s in Cancer and will be conjunct this week’s New Moon. In terms of meaning what we need to know is that Lilith is the she-demon, Adam’s first wife, banished from the Garden of Eden for not complying with and obeying her husband. In astrology Dark Moon Lilith symbolizes feminine rebellion, unrepressed sexuality and the refusal to take the subservient role.
