CHIRON IN ARIES
Mercury enters Scorpio (again) Nov 10- Dec 1
Mercury sets the mind on investigation in the sign of Scorpio--rather interesting given the news of the day. It could be curiosity. It could be vengence. It could be something more dark. Regardless, Mercury is on the case to dig deep and determine what is hiding. A major disturbance brought through Uranus is likely, but that should all be resolved around first of December when Mercury moves into Sagittarius and there is a Full Moon and Lunar eclipse calling for an end and a beginning and forward movement.
Venus in Scorpio
November 22 - December 15
Venus is not particularly comfortable in Scorpio. This fixed sign ruled by Mars by the ancients and Pluto by modern astrologers is intense and harsh for this goddess. As she enters this sign she will find challenges from Uranus in the opposing sign of Taurus- Venus' home sign. very much at home in Libra.
Since Venus moves with some speed through the signs her stay here will be brief. She will be in happy Sagittarius for the winter holidays. But for now make sure you catch yourself if feeling slighted or unrecognized and unappreciated. There will be a tendency to put your claws out or more likely seek revenge for a long held resentment.
I suggest you seek a kind of renewal or rebirth. 2020 has been an extreme challenge for all. Let it be the year of a new take what has value. Take a fresh look at what gives you pleasure and a deep dive into how, who and why you love.
Mars in ARIES
June 27-the end of 2020
Mars in Aries
thru January 6
Mars in Aries is aggressive and powerful. After the passive aggressive stay in Pisces, Aries is now in position to energetically move forward. There are some obstacles in the way and those obstacles are a lack of clarity and a tendency to be overly emotional. Make sure you have plenty of positive activity in your life to make use of that energy that is no longer being held in check. Beware of being hot headed and impulsive. Use the added energy and passion that Mars brings to any project. When we use the energy of a planet, we are more likely to have an easier time of the transit.
Saturn in Aquarius
March 21 - July 1
Saturn is in the process of changing signs. March 21 it makes a step into Aquarius and will be there briefly, then begin a retrograde that will take it into Capricorn for a short time. Then it is back into Aquarius for about 2 and a half years.
We are already feeling some of what this will mean as groups (Aquarius) are restricted (Saturn) and the future (Aquarius) seems serious and dire (Saturn). We always get a hint of what is to come at the ingress. We can use the lessons of Saturn of to move forward.
Saturn in Capricorn
December 19, 2017-
December 17, 2020
It takes Saturn about 30 years to travel through all the signs and it will be in Capricorn til 2020 with a bit of back and forth that year, finally landing in Aquarius December 17, 2020. Saturn has been in Sagittarius, a weak placement for Saturn, but in Capricorn it is at its strongest and most influential. Saturn is the teacher and the disciplinarian. It is under the influence of Saturn that bills come due and karma exacts its price.
Capricorn is the sign that rules governments. How powerful do we want government to be? What do we expect of government and the governed. Both Saturn and Capricorn are cautious, practical, and conservative (in the actual meaning of the word). The late 1980s might suggest the kinds of things that come with this transit, though every time Saturn goes through this sign brings in other players. This time, Uranus in Aries might stir things up. Stay tuned.
"No matter how unpleasant a Saturn transit seems at the time, it represents what you really want in life and is helping you get it. Most people are out of touch with what they truly want. If you thoroughly understand your needs and wants, you will find that Saturn simply brings about their manifestation".

URANUS RETROGRADE IN TAURUS
URANUS IN TAURUS
AUGUST 15-2021 URANUS RETROGRADE
MARCH 6, 2019-JULY 7, 2025
NOVEMBER 8, 2025-APRIL 26, 2026
Uranus in Taurus is a very mixed bag. Uranus by nature is chaotic, forward thinking, revolutionary, and explosive. Taurus nature is conservative, fixed, fond of the past and seeks wealth and stability. I am going to spend the next few weeks looking at the news to get an idea of how this strange configuration is going to manifest.
The last time Uranus was in Taurus began in 1935. This was a time of war, a rise in dictators, extreme changes in fortune for many. We will surely see changes in our monetary system, the markets, real estate, and likely food production. This is an excellent time to modernize infrastructure and use innovation to do so. But we are dealing with Uranus here. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected and the unplanned.
On the day Uranus entered Taurus, this picture was taken. It says it all about the energy of Uranus in Taurus - electricity and earth meeting. Stay tuned for more on this big change.
PS Uranus will take up residence in Taurus until 2025.
Neptune in Pisces
The Master of the Mystical begins forward motion in Pisces. This trip through Pisces will continue through 2025. We may as well get comfortable with examining spirituality, illusion, addiction, and mystery. Neptune will be working with Saturn this year to assist in bringing true spiritual values into form and structure. Look forward to cultural embrace of magic and the enduring value of love and compassion.
Neptune retrograde in Pisces
June 21-November 27
18º Pisces - 15º
The slow moving planets impact the world in a general way, but form aspects to the individual chart as well. Because they move slowly, the impact can be cumulative. Look forward to more on this topic.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
Pluto is the planet of transformation and as one of the outer planets, its effects are wide spread. When Pluto travels through a sign the particular area of life that sign rules is transformed on a fundamental level. Its message can be "change or die". Since Capricorn rules structure, all structures are likely to be overhauled. Since Capricorn rules government, governments are likely to be transformed.
On a personal level, look at your natal chart to get a good idea of the areas of your life that are likely to be shaken to their foundation.
Chiron in Aries
April 17, 2018 - April 2027
Chiron is a slow mover and we are just learning about this newer member of the heavenly bodies we track here on earth in astrology. In the myth, Chiron is a divided being- half human and half horse, half god and half man. In our natal charts, Chiron represents those areas in which our wounding can lead to our healing and the healing of others.
Chiron has been in Pisces steadily since 2011 and is now moving into Aries. This will likely bring about more consciousness around issues of healing and sacrifice. This could well mark a time when we may become aware of cultural wounding and begin to seek remedies rather than supressing awareness of pain. We may become more accutely aware of suffering and seek an active rather than a passive response to injury, illness, or disorder.
The myth of Chiron is one definitely worth reading and exploring as he trained warriors and healers, used his affliction for the benefit of humanity, and sacrificed himself in the service of justice and bringing light to human beings.
