Astrology of the Day - Mars into Libra – Sunday 22nd October 2017


During this Sunday, the Moon spends the first half of the day in Scorpio before changing signs into free and easy Sagittarius. During the morning, it forms an easy tine to Chiron the planet of healing almost instantaneously followed by more difficult aspect to Uranus, and I suspect we can help ourselves and others get through difficult times through kindness and innovative approaches to things. You may have to go out of your comfort zone a little, but it will be well worth it.

As the Moon moves into adventurous Sagittarius, so Mars also shifts into the sign of Libra, and as they do they will form a beneficial sextile aspect. This positive link up gives us an opportunity to make progress in whatever we are doing, we are emotionally tied into the plans that we have this afternoon and this sets the scene for an active end to the day. We willing to try new challenges and also to put our emotions on the line not only for ourselves but also for others too. Mars in Libra is the classic passive aggressive, iron fist in a velvet glove position, and we may now be able to get our way through charm and diplomacy, if only we can climb off that notoriously inactive Libran fence first.

What will Mars in Libra mean for you during the next month and a half? If you know your Ascendant sign (that's dependent on your time of birth) then please read the following interpretations...

Aries – Mars, your ruling planet in Libra will stir up your relationships and add extra spice to them. You may try to play the clever games with your partner to make your relationship more interesting and relevant to what you would like it to be, however be careful not to actually lead your partner into thinking that you are trying to force your will onto theirs. If you can avoid getting into relationship conflicts, this can be a fun and active time to spend with your loved one.

Taurus – Mars moves into the part of your chart linked to sex and intimacy and for some of you this shift in signs may fire up passions within you. Being drawn in power games and manipulation with others may also be a by-product of Mars now moving into Libra, so remember to stand your ground and to protect your own interests. You can take steps to settle debts and actively sort out joint finances, and deal with any investments you have.

Gemini – Mars shifts into the area of your chart connected to faith and you will feel more tempted to stand up for what you what you truly believe in, and similarly you can bring others onto your way of thinking through your charm and personality. There is a possibility that you may be brought into deal with or mediate over matters of culture and diversity, and you may be tempted to take up a study course or enter into education.

Cancer – Being more involved in work projects may be a by-product of Mars in Libra for you or you may be asked to take more of the initiative in your career. This could be a little disconcerting for you, as you may not naturally be the type who wants to lead from the front. The way to deal with this is to use your powers of diplomacy to win colleagues over to assist you. Events and activities of a more public nature may be important for you now.

Leo – This position for Mars will stimulate cooperation and team work, and you will be more involves with teams, associations, company work, fundraising efforts, social and community efforts than in the past. Matters with friends could also be highlighted. Mars here can stimulate arguments and debates, and you may encounter differences of opinion within friendships and collaborative projects.

Virgo – This position of Mars for those of you with Virgo Ascendants is nothing if a little frustrating. Hidden away in your house of isolation, it will benefit you if you have work to do out of the limelight, some research or tasks behind the scenes. Then again this position may tend to thwart many of your plans for the meantime at least, and this could lead to irritation and getting totally frustrated in more private moments. At least it will give you time to reflect ion if your current course of action is the correct one, or not...

Libra – Mars is moving in your Ascendant house giving you a proper boost of energy and initiative. You should be feeling full of beans and ready to go for whatever you set your heart's desire on. This is a forceful position, with the proviso that Mars in Libra might make you as such just a little too selfish, and too engaged in what you are doing rather than thinking about other people and their situation and needs. This can lead to conflicts in relationship situations, so be mindful of this.

Scorpio – Mars shifts into the money making sector of your chart, and money spending too. There is much energy to plough into the work that earns you a wage, however on the flip side you might be too impulsive in how you spend what you bring in, or purchase things that you really cant afford. This part of your chart also deals with your personal values, and you may have to defend them forcefully against those who question what you stand for.

Sagittarius – The entrance of Mars into the part of your chart connected to the mind will fill you with many new ideas and plans, however the tendency to try and do too much too quickly or to try and be all things to all people may actually deflect you from really achieving anything substantial. You may still be rather busy though, running around at high speed, doing errands and keeping in touch with multiple contacts at the same time. Try not to be too hasty, as accidents can happen.

Capricorn - The red planet passes into the domestic part of your chart, and this can lead to you being a bit bossy or selfish at home, upsetting the harmony between yourself and family members. If you can keep yourself busy with tasks at home and linked to the place where you live, such as decorating, DIY, gardening and the like, it will help diffuse tensions and also keep you occupied. Tensions with bosses and finding a balance between your home and work life may be an issue.

Aquarius – The change of house for Mars will be seen in you being much more energetic, creative and loving. It is moving into your house of individuality and therefore you will be much more pre-disposed to enjoying yourself via hobbies, pastimes, socialising, and spending quality time with the one you love the most. Everyone needs time to let their hair down, and this position of Mars will help you do that. Matters connected to children will also be more highlighted than in the past.


Pisces – For you with Pisces the amount of work on your plate may increase and you may be charged with a lot more tasks to carry out than is normally the case. You may have to be careful not to get into conflict with work colleagues now, as they may tread on your toes and irritate you. Health and welfare matters also come to the fore, and you should try to look after your diet and fitness - maybe a new lifestyle regime might help? Keep yourself busy, otherwise you may be susceptible to colds and infections.

Astrology of the Day – Saturday 21st October 2017























We are into moving into a much quieter phase of planetary activity now and we wake to find the Moon moving still in the Sign of Scorpio forming a lovely water trine with Neptune, so we will be looking for a restful and easy start to our weekend. Breakfast in bed with the one you love will sound like a wonderful idea.

As this connection dissipates the Moon moves on further to make another positive connection to the ruler of Scorpio, Pluto. There is much constructive and and yet intense energy here and we can move mountains today if you should want to. This is a great day for sorting our any shared aspects of your life, be it financial or matters about objects and possessions that are jointly owned. In the same way you may be able to benefit from those in positions of influence, especially in regards to future investments or money that you wish to borrow. Arranging to pay back creditors may also a good use of the energy at your fingertips too.

In the background the Sun is approaching the planet of expansion and optimism Jupiter. This connection won't be made for a couple of days yet but we should be starting to feel the benefits of this merging of energies, through a more open, inclusive and happy-go-lucky attitude. This is a time to banish the blues and to start to enjoy life again. Go for it and seize the day, after all once an opportunity has gone, it's unlikely to return again in exactly the same fashion...

Astrology of the Day - Moon in Scorpio - Friday 20th October 2017


On this day the Moon moves into Scorpio and the motivation as she moves into the realm of the underworld is to dig beneath the surface and to discover the truth. There is an emotional need to find out what is going on, how, why and when. 

This is even more the case as the Moon encounters both Jupiter and Mercury in conjunction on her journey today, so there is a desire for wisdom, information and to spread the net far and wide. We may also be interested in other people's problems and issues, and this is a great time for analysing situations so that we can get to the heart of any matter that concerns us. Discussions and debates will be deep and insightful today. 

There is still a sense of the unexpected about the energy now and the day may be punctuated by events happening that you might not expect. Anything new, unique or scientific may be of interest at the moment, as may social or community matters. Late in the day the Moon moves into a favourable angle to Neptune and we will look for a restful, peaceful end to the day, without any arguments or discord. This night we should sleep easier than of late...

Astrology of the Day – New Moon in Libra - Thursday 19th October 2017





The Moon remains in the sign of relating Libra and at 19.11 hrs GMT forms a conjunction with the Sun starting a brand new New Moon cycle. New Moons bring the opportunity to set a new path for yourself. In a way you can wipe the slate clean and start again under them, and in Libra, there is an urge to set things straight and to reset the balance now. If your life has become unbalanced or unhinged, now is a chance to tip things in a new direction.

The New Moon directly opposes Uranus and links into Saturn too therefore we have an opportunity to make a brand new start and to make dramatic changes, so long as we are prepared to also accept that we will have to graft, work hard and be in it for the long haul. There is a sense of independence and rebellion present here, and also a social conscience and humanitarian feeling too. Any long term kind of project that is community based, technical, scientific or aimed for the greater good of all is in my opinion very well starred now.

As for individual effect for this New Moon then if you know your Ascendant sign, (that’s related to the time that you were born) then it's arrival will affect you in the following ways…

Aries – The Libran new Moon lands directly in the part of your chart connected to relationship and partnerships matters. You may have to accept that your partner is seeing things in a new or different way to yourself and you might have to change your attitudes or realise that you need a fresh start, a bit more space and independence. This also applies to to your relationship with people who openly oppose your views.

Taurus – For you your attention should be linked to your health and welfare, so this may be a moment to consider your diet, habits and how you look after yourself. Your daily work and routine also come under scrutiny and how you relate to people at work might change, especially if new people come in or you yourself seek new work challenges or tasks to take on.

Gemini – This New Moon shines a light on your individual talents and you may find enjoyment from taking up new hobbies, or or just being creative. You might have to take a new attitude in relation to children, and in terms of love and affection a new romance or a restart to an existing relationship may be on the cards.

Cancer – For this New Moon it's all change at home and in your domestic situation, you may take up a new attitude towards your family or housemates, you may find the women in your life are a source of inspiration or disruption, there may be abrupt beginnings and endings that you have to deal with, and the chance to set a new course and start again may come to pass.

Leo – The New Moon affects the way you think, speak and communicate. Maybe being a little outspoken and thinking in a different way will help in the long run? You will be busy with unexpected calls on your time, and you may have to make off the cuff journeys and trips to new places. Why not try learning a new skill?

Virgo – Why not try and find a new way of earning money? You may feel like asking for a pay rise or going out and buying something that is a little different and unique. Being different and trusting your values will help your self-worth.

Libra – You'll feel more confident and willing to put yourself in the spotlight. Why not your appearance and try out a new style, a complete overhaul of the way you live may make you feel better and it will also help how you relate to others

Scorpio – This New Moon lands in the most hidden part of your chart and thus things connected to charity or working behind the scenes may be beneficial to you, as may finding your own personal space and peace away from the demands of everyday life. An unexpected sacrifice made could turn out to be the right decision in the end.

Sagittarius – The New Moon stimulates anything linked to group activities and social concerns and you may be getting more involved in situations where your particular talents come in useful for the greater good of everyone. Matters linked to friends are important too and why not start to cooperate with them to try and fulfil your hopes and dreams?

Capricorn – Work and career matters take on new importance and maybe you can make a real impression now on bosses and senior people through your unique approach to things. This full Moon also boosts how you are perceived in public and you may get noticed or find yourself in the spotlight in some way?

Aquarius – For you learning something new is what you will get out of this fresh lunar cycle. Your faith and belief systems will be tested and it would do you well you open your mind to new ways of seeing things. You may be involved with people who come from a different point of view or culture too. Unexpected travel plans may have to be activated, legal matters may be highlighted or situations connected to in-laws and extended families may come to light.

Pisces – The New Moon activates all issues connected to sharing, this could involve finances, other people's possessions and values, including those who you love. Intimate relationships can be a source of tension or joy now, and you may find that opening your mind to new experiences may freshen your relationship up. Secrets may come to light now or you may have to deal with people in positions of power and influence. Watch out for those who unexpectedly try to manipulate your point of view.
