|I took this pic in Glastonbury of ‘Divine Mother’ so here she is to nurture & protect us as we venture through Cancer time during July…the sign of home & family.
This is the first quarter point in our natural year, which opened March 21st when the Sun entered Aries and we waved goodbye to the world as we’ve known it and said hello to a brand new reality…whether we like it or not right?
So now it’s time to ANCHOR our lives, manage our feelings of fear frustration & uncertainty, and stay strong in the knowledge that this massive global crisis offers us the transformation into a more just and equitable world as we head into 2021. It is up to us people!
Both Sun & Mercury in Cancer bring us another changeling month as they meet the ‘Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn global re-set’ forces, so it is wise to be patient and continue to ‘stay at home’ or lie low until mid-August.
The global protests in June for ‘Black Lives Matter’ are both the symbol of, and precursor to an incredible wave of activism against ‘the old guard’ entrenched values that drive corporate profit at the expense of human rights! The 99% is rising up against the old Saturn/Pluto system. A revolution is on the way folks.
As Mars in Aries now comes into play in the global drama we may expect the next 6 months to bring many areas toward a climax by November when the Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto team meet up in Capricorn for the first since 1284…yes that long ago! Perfectly timed for the US Elections! I mean who writes this cosmic script for goodness sake?
OK so let’s check the July planets…
Read on for for Mars in Aries & your Horoscopes…
This is a big deal for us all as has not happened since 1988 – 32 years ago! This was the activism lead up to the 1989 Berlin Wall watershed shift. When the Lord of a sign is home in his sign he is EXTRA powerful in his drive to initiate and pioneer new frontiers. At best he is a proactive force who drives us individually and collectively as a brave and confident ingredient for the second half of 2020. And yes, his downside isn’t so great as he unleashes anger and aggression so we can expect a bit of both when he gets involved in the fresh wave of ‘activism’ on the way.
First we have Mars in Aries square Jupiter in Cap twice – in early August, then 18th to 24th October. This is an ‘adventurous explorer’ visionary combo containing loads of successful energetic activity, with an optimistic expansive drive toward future goals. The caution as ever with Mars and especially in Aries not to act impulsively without taking all factors into consideration. And don’t get infected with unjustified optimism that ‘everything will turn to gold’. Yes this is a ‘lucky’ transit but in Capricorn still requires we keep our feet on the ground and be careful of our ego drive as Mars plus Aries can be a tad selfish, so keep the balance of other people’s needs in consideration, and also the reality that we need others to support our progress.
Next comes Mars in Aries square Saturn in Cap twice – from late August through to late September so a month in total on this one. This Mars/Saturn combo is the exact opposite to the goodies described with Jupiter, as Saturn brings constraint and limitation to our energy and drives, so just chill during September as attempts to strike forward may be met with resistance. The upside can be very productive if you’re willing to work hard says Saturn! This can be an irritating and frustrating period where authority figures block us, or if you are an authority figure resist the urge to be hard and unbending. Fear is a factor here – fear of failure – fear of not being up to task. So just feel the fear and breathe through it until mid-October when Jupiter kicks back in!
Stay positive and confident to get the best out of Mars over the next 6 months!
Greetings fellow travelers as we head into a complex & challenging June with our bi-annual Eclipses, Mercury retro in Cancer, and Jupiter joining Pluto again in Capricorn in late June.
Wish I could say this will bring clarity and calm in the midst of the storm but alas we have Mr Neptune in Pisces joined by Mars challenging Sun & Venus in Gemini. This combo continues to bring confusing words & ideas until late July at least. So stay positive and patient and…BE HERE NOW in the words of the great Ram Das.
We are also seeing the classic 2 sides of Gemini with growing polarization between the ‘masks on and masks off’ positions, and in the USA this is also playing out with increasing civil unrest after the murder of an unarmed black man by the police. The Venus retro period (eyes left!) has activated Trump’s Sun/Uranus that ‘triggers’ the USA Mars in Gemini so rather than bringing people together the war on words has moved into the streets.
This is also amplified with Saturn in Aquarius since late March as the ‘chaos’ of the Covid economic meltdown highlighting the great divide between the rich/poor and black/white racial division, and increasing loss of civil liberties. This reflecting the very nature of the struggle between the old ‘separatist consciousness’ and the incoming Aquarian essence of the ‘unity consciousness’ world view.
Meanwhile we are all upping the ‘how do I re-invent myself’ ideas amidst the sudden arrival of our new world! Yet again I will simply remind you that ‘our Gemini thoughts create our reality’ so we must control our negative fear based mind and be very agile and adaptable to changing circumstances.
These shifting times call for radical solutions and hold the promise of wonderful fresh pathways as we now have the opportunity to re-write our personal and global story. Things are not going to go back to ‘normal’…indeed normal was a world of over consumption based on greed and abuse of people and planet. As we get set for Jupiter and Saturn heading into Aquarius in 2021 paving the way for our social revolution we must stay positive, as we are also aware that huge shifts into 2021 will be coming to our financial & business systems as we head into this new unpredictable era.
Mercury is in Cancer as June opens and turns retro on June 18th – then direct on July 12th – but doesn’t head into Leo until August 5th.
Cancer brings our thoughts & words’ to family matters & it’s great to focus on ‘anchoring your emotional energy’ with lots of “I am safe” messages to self! Upside we can openly talk about our feelings & needs in a healthy nurturing way – downside resist the impulse to speak from fear based feelings. Use Merc Retro for the ‘re’ things – re-think re-organize.
Eclipse Season begins on June 5th with a Lunar Eclipse @ 15 degrees – Sun in Gemini opposite Moon in Sagittarius brings extreme expression of ideas so make sure yours are WISE and TOLERANT. Also highlights international affairs.
And the we have a big daddy Solar Eclipse with Sun & Moon @ Zero Cancer on the Solstice on June 21st as the Sun enters Cancer until July 22nd. This is one of the ‘Cardinal world degrees’ so packs a major punch for collective global affairs, with a 19 year echo back to June 2001.
June completes with Jupiter joining Pluto again – first pass was late March – final pass November. This is the visionary force driving opportunities as the old world is dying, so keep working up your visionary projects!
And finally we have big news as Mars charges into Aries on June 29th until the end of the year. Lots more on this in the July letter.
This mandala shows the relationship between Venus and the Sun from the Earth (measured 2000 times, every 5 days, starting June 12, 1882).
The ‘Venus Star’ – Divine Geometry indeed!
She is now retro in Gemini in her 8 year cycle since June 2012. This was the trigger for the end and new beginning of 26,000 year Mayan Calendar cycle of 2012.
Her 40 day retro cycle brings us the profound symbology of the descent into the underworld during the first 20 days when she is ‘the evening star’. She then meets the Sun in Gemini on June 4th followed by the Lunar Eclipse the day after!
When the divine feminine aligns with the divine masculine, there is the potential for loving heart-centered connection to the innermost core of ourselves and to all others. We can then take this forward with us as she then begins to step out into the world again as the ‘morning star’! So focus on this Mandada on June 4th my friends.
Historically her cycle in Gemini brings us big time IT & techno developments e.g. Facebook launch in 2004, so this time we have Elon Musk & his Space X launch on May 30th – with Saturn in Aquarius launching our new Space Economy.
Along with Saturn & Mars in Aquarius she has revolutionized our digital social & business interactions. She turns retro on 13th May and then direct on June 25th, but stays in Gemini until August 8th. Her gift here is adaptability, learning new skills & embracing ideas and conversations, and the birth of brand new social networks, communities and apps.
Here’s an extract from my Mayan Calendar Article from 2012. that epitomizes the Venus in Gemini principle.
“For our current planetary evolution we must give up being ‘polarized’ with attachment to right and wrong, good and bad, pleasure and pain, and all manner of participating in systems of polarized parties or people.
What we need is the ‘place in the middle’…the point of harmony & balance where we create a relationship with our own center…our ‘be here now-ness’.
Once we achieve this we can move into the ‘flow’ of our own creative process and become part of the change rather than at the mercy of it! The keyword in all of this is synthesis.
It is time to link our ‘higher nature’ with our ‘lower nature’ by practicing the art of nurturing our fears and insecurities when they arise…but not feeding them… and standing alone as an individual but not separate from others.
This is “Unity Consciousness” and requires thinking inclusively…we are all one. We live in a global village and we all have responsibility to be a creative part of the process as our old world passes away and new one is being born.”
So why are eclipses so important? Eclipses happen twice a year when the sun moon & earth align on the Nodal Axis. The North & South Nodes are the points where the Moon crosses the ecliptic (the path of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun) every 6 months.
Eclipses have a 19 year cycle, so any eclipse does not have a relationship with a 6 month previous or later eclipse, but rather with the eclipse from 19 years before!! So if you are looking for insight into previous themes of this eclipse go back 19 years to June 2001 and search your memory for what happened then! The Nodes are considered karmic destiny points so these 19 year cycles open major karmic relationships and events that move us forward toward destiny if they trigger our personal horoscope.
The Lunar Eclipse on July 5th is not visible from North America; the timing favors Africa, Asia, and Australia. If you have planets/points around 15 degrees Gemini/Sagittarius or Virgo/Pisces then this Lunar eclipse is significant for you.
The Solar Eclipse on June 21st crosses Africa, the Saudi Peninsula, and southern Asia. Historically eclipses can trigger major earth shifts & changes…quakes etc. plus big shifts in cultural & political activity in the regions under the path of the eclipse over the earth. If you have planets/points around Zero degrees Cancer/Capricorn or Aries/Libra then it’s the Solar Eclipse that’s a game changer in your world.
Eclipse families are called Saros Cycles that have themes or features. The Cancer Solar Eclipse on June 21st is from Saros Cycle 4 North – “This is a a difficult Saros cycle – can bring restraint that blocks activity – may misjudge our strengths or a situation so best to wait till eclipse passes before taking any real action”. The previous eclipse in this cycle was June 2001. As Eclipses hold energy for a 6 month period until the next one in December, here we see the historical significance from the September 11th 2001 ‘attack on America’, with repercussions that indeed echo to this day.
Eclipses can have a wildcard effect that that we don’t see coming that shift us from one state to another very quickly for our evolution. They can provide whatever it is we need to get moving even if it is something challenging! They bring new life events that can change us in major ways, such as people leaving our lives or new ones entering.
Try not to take major decisions, action or make announcements around the eclipse time but rather wait at least a few weeks to see what events unfold & more information develops. Stay open to sudden developments that take you to unexpected outcomes…i.e. not what you have intended but what your destiny really has in store.
Ancient tradition offers the idea that eclipses offer a periodic ‘pathway to the gods’ as cosmic safety valves, which periodically allow evil forces to escape into the Cosmos, where they will be of no harm to mankind. According to certain occult theories, the shadow lane of the solar eclipse permitted initiated priests to communicate with the higher gods, and to put to them questions of profound importance. Some scholars maintain that this was the underlying reason why the ancients built the mysterious stone circles still scattered through parts of Northern Europe.
So as close as you can to the times listed below make like your own priest/ess and set intentions and visualize yourself opening new doors as you invite innovation for your life and let go of the past. It could just be life changing!!!
Here’s a recap of Eclipse magic…
- Likened to a supercharged New or Full Moon – strong reactions
- Fated events or destiny points – wildcards that shake us up & move us forward very rapidly – provide us with what we need to get us moving i.e. rival/critic/benefactor – pieces of puzzle revealed
- “Outside” events beyond our control with lasting outcomes
- Big news you long remember – buy/sell homes – start/finish business – new partners/endings – babies – inheritances/loss of income source – new pet/lose one – health issues – surprises/shocks
- Cross bridge to ‘new land’ with no going back – ready for new phase
- Consider proposals & decisions but don’t act 2 weeks either side – wait for more info & let dust settle – don’t make empty threats
- Compress ‘time’ & speed things up – timetables change
- Show us capabilities & strengths that may surprise us – face fears etc.
- If on Birthday particularly important shifts/changes/open new 19 yrs.
- Note all news & signals as can foretell big changes on the way

Blessings and love from Maggie
Greetings friends as we head on through this turbulent process of the 2020 transformation!
I truly hope you are managing OK, as I know many are experiencing loss and uncertainty. But it’s also great that many are tapping into the fresh spirit of the future, as my recent clients are asking ‘how can I do things differently and grow from here’?
So I’m excited that Saturn in Aquarius aligning with Venus in Gemini (April through to August) is stimulating and opening our minds & hearts to innovate with fab new ideas and virtual communities. We also have the North Node entering Gemini to add another big dose of this! Scroll left for details…
In the midst of so much fear, anxiety & uncertainty never has it been more vital to use our mindfulness skills to hold steady and keep the faith that we will emerge from this crisis with a new world view beyond the old broken unsustainable model!
So our yummy Full Moon on the 7th is a perfect boost of Buddha consciousness to empower our hearts and minds. This is the most sacred of the annual Lunar festivals as it honors the birth, enlightenment and death of Lord Buddha. “The mind is everything. What you think you become”.
As the Sun travels through Taurus until May 21st the themes of money, resources, nature, art & music are highlighted. Obviously the money bit is high on the agenda as we enter a government engineered recession to combat the C-Virus unlike any since the early 1930s. I’ll talk more about this in the main section.
On the upside our natural world is enjoying a breath of fresh air, gardening is ‘trending’, and online music and art gigs are thriving! We must continue to drive for renewal of our environment & be alert for old guard attempts to dismantle protection laws as Taurus drives the values that drive our business models!
Messenger Mercury is also in Taurus focusing our minds and words on practical & financial matters.
He zips into Gemini on the 12th to join Venus & North Node so this brings hyper mental & verbal mojo until the end of May. Take care of your nervous system & give yourself a break from social media as peeps will be going off!
Activator Mars has been in Aquarius since late March catalyzing the radical social changes from the Virus. Upside here is he’s super amped up for startling ahha quick shifts, but downside he’s edgy and anxious so once again lots of slow breathing and rest as much as possible.
Mars heads into Pisces on May 14th until end of June where he will join Neptune in C-Virus land as Pisces rules the invisible energy systems that run our immune system. The Virus thing took off back in January when Venus did her time in Pisces, followed by Mercury so Mars activating this area again may suggest further virus activity. Very frustrating that mainstream media just isn’t mentioning how to build our immune systems, so once again loads of Vit C Broccoli Garlic Ginger Spinach Yogurt Almonds Turmeric Green Tea Papaya Kiwi Fruit Sunflower Seeds & Shellfish – and lots of good sleep!
Venus in Gemini spends May in hard aspect with Neptune in Pisces so we will continue to experience
confusion and lack of clarity with messaging so we must CHECK FACTS as outright lies & misinformation are a signature of this combo!
If you’d like to catch up on my Feb & March & April updates including the C Virus story here’s my blog page
And if you missed my big 150 page 2020 Global Report here it is
Retrograde Season & Nodes Changing Signs
A big shift in the Cosmic clock arrives as the Nodes of the Moon change signs from Cancer/Capricorn into Gemini/Sagittarius on May 6th for the next 19 months until January 2022!
The Nodes are invisible points where the Moon’s orbit intersects with Sun & Earth’s, giving rise to the Karmic pulse of human affairs.
So here we have another big dose of the fresh AIR impulse stimulating the 2020 story, as North Node joins Venus in Gemini PLUS Saturn in Aquarius demanding fresh ideas & solutions as the old world view is melting down!
Gemini is ruled by Messenger planet Mercury & rules communication & networking of ideas. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter & inspires the quest for truth and dissemination of knowledge.
Gemini is a DUAL sign and we’re already seeing the polarized positions flying through the e-waves & media of ‘shut down versus open up’ camps. There’s 2 sides of the conversation with Gemini so we must stay open to views & verify info before making informed choices!
Gemini/Sag rules local & international travel, so it will be interesting to watch how & when things open again, and I’m hoping the mass tourism thing & excessive business travel is also a thing of the past! Nature is enjoying this respite!!
This also means the whole international trade systems are up for major revision as the disruption to the flow of export/import means countries will need to begin producing goods and services within their borders.
As Gemini is quick, clever, versatile & adaptable this is your mantra for the next 19 months! Lots of folks will be re-training into new skill sets &/or writing & teaching others.
Venus has been paving the way here since April as we’ve all gone on-line to connect personally & professionally, so we can expect this sign of the times to continue as the new normal.
Our evolution here involves ‘mastering’ our minds & mouths by developing conscious use of our ‘intention of thoughts & words’ so we can use our ‘thoughtforms’ to create our reality regardless of external influences by using the Law of Attraction to bring us people & connections to manifest our goals.
Retrograde Season begins for the year with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn & Pluto all doing their backward thing until MId-September/October.
So we have 4 months to do the RE things – review reorganize rethink release etc – plus work up projects and plans. More on this in main section…
Recordings are ready from the Astrology of 2020 Seminar.
Mail me to book or order recordings!
Timing details for the mid-year Retrograde Season…
All planets have a retrograde (or apparently moving backwards) phase each year, when the process they have triggered whilst direct must then be developed until they turn direct once more.
- Power planet Pluto in Capricorn is already retro as May opens until he turns direct on 3rd October, when we may then expect the ‘destruction’ phase of socio/political & economic systems to then give rise to re-birth into a fresh phase.
- New horizons planet Jupiter (also in Capricorn with Pluto) begins his retro on May 14th until he turns direct 13th September, when we can expect business productivity to begin take off again.
- Re-structuring planet Saturn has been in Aquarius since late March and begins his retro on 11th May. He steps back into Capricorn to join Jupiter & Pluto and he turns direct here on 29th September after doing his bit to re-organize business models (personally & globally).
- So we see the co-incidence of these THREE all releasing into forward motion during September & early October.
- Social planet Venus has been in Gemini since April 4th & along with Saturn & Mars in Aquarius she has revolutionized our digital social & business interactions. She turns retro on 13th May and then direct on June 25th, but stays in Gemini until August 8th. Her gift here is adaptability, learning new skills & embracing ideas and conversations, and the birth of brand new social networks, communities and apps.
- Meanwhile once all these guys are direct once more we head into Mars retrograde from 9th September as he spends the whole period from July to the end of the year in Aries. More on this next major cosmic ingredient in the 2020 story in the next letter…plus June brings us the Eclipse season.
Saturn/Pluto cycles and global recessions…
Previous Saturn in Capricorn Cycles – they meet on average every 38 years.
1988/92 Fall of the Berlin Wall ends USSR & births new Russian era – Protests in Peking heavily repressed – global recession
1959/62 Height of Cold War – Kennedy defeated Nixon to become President – global recession followed by new era
1929/32 Great Depression and rise of Fascist dictators in Europe and Japan
1898/98 Global depression and arrival of the inventions that would drive the 21stC
So as economists and business/political leaders were still talking up what great shape the economy was in during 2019 it was we Astrologers who were saying hey wait a minute previous Saturn Capricorn cycles tell us that a recession is on the way!!
Previous Saturn/Pluto Cycles
Here’s an extract from my 2020 Report…written in late 2019.
Saturn will catch up with Pluto and they meet together on January 12th 2020.
This will be one of the most significant conjunctions of our era and sets the stage until 2053! Saturn/Pluto share a 38-year cycle together and their combined archetypes bring us “the Plutonic empowering and intensifying of the Saturn impulse towards conservative reaction or repression.”
The previous Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Libra period 1981-84 brought us the conservative Reagan & Thatcher admins with their agenda for ‘Globalization’ and ‘free market economy’ to reward industry at the expense of sovereign and humanitarian rights, and the waning period of the old USSR system as the Polish regime repressed the Solidarity Movement. Major repressive figures of this era include Philippines Ferdinand Marcos, Pinochet in Chile and Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
A recession in the United States began in July 1981 and ended in November 1982. One cause was the Federal Reserve’s contractionary monetary policy, which sought to rein in the high inflation. In the wake of the 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 energy crisis, stagflation began to afflict the economy.
And let us not forget the massive global re-arrangement when Saturn & Pluto met in 1947-8 when they were in Leo, as Israel and Palestine AND India and Pakistan AND North & South Korea were created! Is it any wonder with this archetypal signature these countries have endured such tremendous stress to this day! For goodness sake when are global policy makers going to consult a good astrologer to set a horoscope for positive outcomes?
Then there’s the September 1914/15 Saturn Pluto conjunction in Cancer which brought us WW1 and the Russian Revolution, after which the empires of Europe were re-shaped, giving birth to the excessive times of the ‘Roaring Twenties’ in the West leading up to the Great Depression of 1929/32 when Saturn was yes…you guessed it…in Capricorn!
So, as Saturn joins Pluto in Capricorn in Jan 2020 get set for the beginning of our next global re-configuring of geo-political and economic systems, and the clash between right-wing nationalists & those they seek to repress . The 1929/32 cycle brought us German, Italian & Japanese Fascism, and the 1959/62 cycle the height of the Cold War.
BTW during the 1917/8 Global Flu Pandemic Saturn & Pluto were together in Cancer – the opposite signs to where they are now!!
We have not had a meeting of Saturn with Pluto in Capricorn since 1518!
So even though these two meet every 35-37 years there is a larger cycle when they meet in a particular sign…in this case Capricorn 500 years ago. This is one quarter of a 2000 year double millennium so always delivers a renaissance period where society begins to morph beyond the past toward fresh territory.
1518 was the year when the German Monk Martin Luther nailed his list of grievances about corruption in the Catholic Church on a church door in Nuremburg and the fires of the Protestant Reformation were lit. Henry VIII was the young inspirational King in England (before he lost the plot and became a tyrant) and his divorce from wife Catherine of Aragon caused his split with the Pope and he formed the protestant Church of England! The Auto de Fey or burnings of heretics by the Catholic Church also contributed to the Protestant breakaway.
The famous Medici Family were at the zenith of their power in Florence, sponsors to Leonardo Da Vinci & the great Renaissance movement, and ‘bankers’ to the European Kings.
Portugal began to build its trading empire by establishing a base in Goa India. The Turkish Ottoman empire continued to expand as Sultan Suleiman captured Belgrade on his march into Europe. Spaniard Hernán Cortés attacked the Aztecs at Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). They were killed by the thousands and defeated. By 1526 the printing press was introduced in Sweden paving the way for the mass production & distribution of knowledge.
So even with this quick rundown of the historical goodies from this period it is clear to see the Renaissance and Reformation unleashed on the last conjunction changed the very fabric of the world for centuries to come…until now. The keynote of Capricorn involves commercial activity and this era birthed the exploitation principle!
So as we are passing through the death of the old cycle and the birth of a new 500 year period, here’s to the Aquarian ideals of commercial profit being equitable for ALL members of the global family beyond the greed and corruption that have been the hallmark of the dark age now completing!!
Saturn moves into Aquarius to stay joined by Jupiter in December 2020, so we will see the rise of people demanding this reformation from 2021. This is followed by Pluto into Aquarius in 2023 for the first time since the 1780s! Aquarius brings us the revolutionary impulse and the last time a King lost his head, and the USA was born. And on that note the USA is due for a Pluto return in 2022. More on this in future letters.
OK I’m pooped and need to get this letter out or I will rave on and on lol. Be kind and generous in these tough times. Compassion is the mark of the spiritual warrior.
Stay positive and shine your light my friends
Much love from Maggie
Greetings friends as we journey together through this fundamental and very rapid transformation of our society…and in the blink of a cosmic eye everything we have taken for granted has changed.
Despite knowing that 2020 would bring the most dramatic shifts in 500 years courtesy of Saturn & Pluto meeting in Capricorn, I am just as shocked as everyone as to the magnitude of what has now come to pass since January.
In mythology Gaia the Great Earth Mother married Ouranos Sky God and they gave birth to the Gods who would rule over us. Ouranos who we now call Uranus is known as ‘the Father of Archetypes’ and he operates through CHAOS as he seeds the new from the detritus of the old forms.
2020 is remarkable for bringing together 3 main planet cycle shifts, starting with Saturn/Pluto in Cap in January, then Saturn stepping into Aquarius on the March 23rd New Aries Moon, and now Jupiter meets Pluto in Cap as we head into April. So as old cycles end and new ones begin please remember we are at a DAWN or new beginning, which always offers the promise of hope for the future in the midst of the chaotic painful birth process!
If you’d like to catch up on my Feb & March updates including the C Virus story scroll down past this post
Before I head into the April story I’d like to give a huge shout out to my dear friend John Edward who has been so supportive of my work over this past 14 years. He is a truly generous Soul who offers his Evolve on-line Community as a rich source of tools for conscious evolution. Many thanks to those he has sent my way for your kind donation for my 2020 Global Astrology Report & Horoscopes.
April opens with a bang as activator Mars joins Saturn in Aquarius to kick start an amazing wave of clever inventive ways to not only cope with this new scenario, but also to step right up and begin re-inventing ourselves. Aquarius after all is the sign of the inventor and futurist. Mars now adds another dose of AIR to what has been the darker heavier Capricorn forces AND
I am very excited about all this AIR coming back into the astro-scape as AIR brings us ideas & information & solutions and also offers a chance for us to step up into greater objectivity as we pass through this ‘eye of the needle’ between the past and the future that is 2020.
So at best the combo of Mars with Saturn can trigger community spirit that brings us together in the spirit of we are seriously all in this together and practicing random acts of kindness as never before. Here’s a great article about how our 2 political parties in Oz are co-operating rather than yelling at each other as usual!
And this essay is the very best I have read over these many weeks about this whole process – well worth a read! I wish I had the skill to bring it all together as well as this gentleman!
Downside here between April 1st and 4th can be pretty heavy as people may lash out in their fear looking for something/one to blame for their feelings of powerlessness. It will also bring things to a head in some way – the ‘eye of the storm’ perhaps as this wave of the virus reaches its peak over the next 2 weeks? The impact of social distancing (Saturn Aquarius) may really kick in as cabin fever strikes and feelings of isolation are intense. So rather than allowing your buttons to be pressed just do your breathing and centering and use your mantra “I am safe – all is well” even if you have to say this 100 times a day lol. This should start passing once Mars moves away from Saturn as April unfolds. Mars leaves Aqua in mid May and then moves into Pisces.
Please remember that if we have the luxury of self-isolation in a home with food we are the lucky ones!!!!!!! Countless billions of people are poor and have no access to medical care and social support so count your blessings if you are like me…a lucky one! Yes I live alone so am used to being a hermit and my beautiful Ziggy cat is getting and giving so many hugs!! I have also been on the phone heaps and lots of emails and Skype chats with people all over the planet so I am fine and grateful. Ziggy is sending purrs to you from his pic at the end of this little report!
And then we have expansive growth planet Jupiter joining power planet Pluto also in early April for the first of their three meetings this year (the second retrograde pass in late June and final connection in November.) So these are the dudes who are driving the deeper evolutionary growth potential, and as Jupiter often brings his gifts as opportunity disguised as loss it can be very helpful to know that in the midst of all this chaos (Saturn in Aquarius) and destruction (Pluto in Capricorn) that as Jupiter & his brother Pluto join forces they will forge powerful fresh vision and purpose as the year goes by. Scroll down for my little Rave about Pluto after the next bit…
Mercury is still in Pisces ( yes it feels like forever since early Feb with his retrograde here) and joins Neptune also on April 4th, and I see this also as a kind of ‘peak infection’ moment as this falls on the Moon in Pisces of the Millennium Horoscope I discussed back in February. As Mercury is information and Pisces can bring confusion and misinformation try and stay sanguine as rumors or news may feed into insecurities. Once again this passes quite quickly and by April 11th Mercury thankfully finally leaves Pisces and heads into Aries until April 28th and we step out of the Piscean fog. You will find your ‘mind and mouth’ become clearer and more assertive.
The Full Moon on April 8th falls @ 18 degrees with Sun in Aries opposite Moon in Libra. This Full Moon brings the release or full point from the Aries New Moon back on March 24th when the shite really started fitting the fan…so to speak. So once again we may see some kind of maximum expression of the impact on our society here, as both Jupiter and Pluto are in hard aspect. On the upside Mars in Aquarius rules the Full Moon and he is in great aspect with Venus in Gemini to stimulate us with positive ideas and connections.
The New Moon on April 23rd @ 3 degrees Taurus is right on top of change agent Uranus and in hard aspect to the Mars/Saturn combo in Aquarius. So we may expect the unexpected on this one. Taurus rules money systems, food & agriculture & the environment. Uranus brings us sudden and unexpected developments & breakthroughs so our current global situation could change dramatically. Perhaps this is the peak and things level off quite quickly. Here’s to that scenario thank you!
Here’s some insights and tools to mange our Pluto journey through these transformational times…
Pluto is ‘The Lord of the Underworld’ and Jupiter the ‘King of Heaven’ so we have a meeting of the higher and lower worlds right now both externally and internally. Pluto forces us to go DEEP so Jupiter can take us HIGHER. Pluto regulates ‘the transformational process’ that brings death/rebirth and operates below the threshold of consciousness as ‘the alchemist’ who transmutes base metals into gold. Fab stuff straight from the Alchemical Traditions!
One of his metaphors is the descent into the dark cocoon where we must wait patiently for the season to reveal the butterfly waiting to be born. We meet the true mystery of life and death through Pluto’s process! And a term I use in my therapy work is ‘entering the void’ – ‘the place between what we once were and what we are not yet.’ I’ve always found this very supportive in my client work as it really helps to know that ‘the void’ is actually not an empty place but rather a place rich in potential if we can manage our vulnerability and confusion. It is not a comfortable place, especially for those who are attached to outer world action as their primary driver. The question becomes “who am I if I am not a human doing?”
So we have this excellent opportunity right now to slow down and reassess what is really important as we also honor and care for our feelings. This is where the ‘7 stages of grief’ can be very helpful to remind us we need to acknowledge our grief as we deal with the devastating losses of jobs and lifestyles and the uncertainty of these times. Just remember this is not just a sequential process. We can jump around between these feelings sometimes several times in a day!
The 7 Stages of Grief
We also need our ‘Spiritual resilience’ right now by using the tools we have been cultivating over many years and decades. At some point each day just tune in to your 7 Chakras and set them spinning and visualize the God force or Quantum source or whatever you call it feeding down through your crown to your third eye – throat – HEART – FEELINGS in your belly – power in your lower belly and grounding you at the base.
Here is a wonderful overview of the ‘energetic’ forces at work right now and how we may tap into these in the most positive way plus a meditation from my old friend and colleague Phillip Lindsay one of the best Esoteric Astrologers on the planet. You can sign up for his excellent free newsletters
“The individual etheric body is not an isolated and separated human vehicle but is, in a peculiar sense, an integral part of the etheric body of that entity which we have called the human family; this kingdom in nature, through its etheric body, is an integral part of the planetary etheric body; the planetary etheric body is not separated off from the etheric bodies of other planets but all of them in their totality, along with the etheric body of the sun constitute the etheric body of the solar system.” (Esoteric Astrology, Alice A. Bailey. p.10.)
And here is Ziggy. He is so patient while I sing him silly songs!
Blessings and love to you all
Greetings old fiends & welcome new ones to my March update as we swim through these unchartered waters of Mercury retrograde in Pisces & confusion reigns in so many ways!
Yes this one’s been a doozy with Sun also in Pisces the sign of invisible & subtle energies like the immune system that protects us from incoming infectious disease! So take care of yours as the C-virus may be part of life for a while me thinks. Pisces is also associated with isolation & retreat – classic stuff as a new sign of the times right? It also rules confusion & misinformation so don’t believe all you read and hear right now!
Check my last blog for full details…
So until March 21st when Sun enters Aries to begin our new natural year rest up when you can & allow your psyche/Soul to dream fresh dreams & create safe boundaries both physically & emotionally! See yourself with a protective force field that zaps negative everything ok?
Once Mercury turns direct on March 10th the fog begins to clear, connections start flowing again & you can make clearer decisions, although he remains in Pisces until end of April.
The Full Moon Pisces/Virgo on March 9th with Neptune exactly on the Sun in Pisces asks us to figure how to bring ‘heaven down to earth’ or make our dreams a practical reality. FMoon has fab inspiration & ingredients that feed into…
…the big energies kicking in from the New Aries Moon on the 24th @ 4 degrees, green lighting the release of excellent new projects you’ve been working toward.
In the chart above we see a number of MAJOR features including Mars (who rules Aries) joining both Jupiter & Pluto in Capricorn.
AND the arrival of Saturn into Aquarius for our first taste of a big ‘breath of fresh AIR’!
Read on below…
Mars + Jupiter + Pluto in Capricorn in the New Moon in Aries Chart…
Our inaugural new moon for the ‘natural year’ is super active to say the least as the ruler of Aries is Mars, who joins Jupiter & Pluto in Capricorn for the first of their 3 meetings this year – the next pass is late June and finally in the 2nd week of November. This is the beginning of their new 12 year cycle together & is the most important signature of 2020 after the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in January -the 500 year cycle now kicking in that will completely transform our global systems. For all the news on this & the Global Story here’s my report if you missed it.
So Jupiter urges us to expand & opens new frontiers – does things BIG & is a visionary who looks toward future possibilities. On the upside he is Mr Lucky who brings fab opportunities into play – on the downside he over inflates and takes unwise risks. He rules our ‘call to adventure’ and is associated with seeking, higher learning, writing & the sharing of information so journalism & the media.
He amplifies any Planet he joins – in this case Pluto the Lord of regeneration & renewal. Pluto rules the power systems that control our Capricorn global governance systems. (This is why 2020 is such a big deal as as Pluto and his mates Jupiter & Saturn are all in Capricorn.) At best Jupiter/Pluto can announce the beginning of an uber powerful period of excellent expansion in your life. Together they forge new empires personally and globally to expand our old outmoded world views…very exciting & of course quite how and where this is on offer in your own world depends on your horoscope. Time to check in with me and find out?
We are already seeing the Jupiter effect kicking in as he rules ‘international’ matters & the Virus is circulating without border restrictions. Also in the BIG wave of fear reactions and people panic buying as if the world is about to end. It will not ok? Just have enough provisions to get you through a few weeks in isolation if need be. Obviously if you display severe symptoms then get yourself to hospital, although it is the elderly and immune systems compromised folks who are at higher risk.
BTW the last time they met in December 2007 was at the height of the stock market bull run and the writing was on the wall for the beginning of the GFC in January 2008. So even though they don’t meet until late March, we’ve already seen an official ‘correction’ kicking in courtesy of the C-Virus fears of longer term issues to do with supply chains, with many industries already feeling the pressure. This is why I’m also intrigued as to what may be on the cards when Mars triggers their first meeting as this can also play out as another trigger for the global re-structuring process.
As much as there are ‘real’ issues in play here please remember not to allow your personal energy to get caught up in the fear machine as it continues to amp up over coming weeks. FEAR feeds into victim consciousness – not a good look at this time ok? “Your mantra is I allow the Universe to support & protect me as I continue to manifest my creative goals into the world.”
A Little Touch of Saturn in Aquarius…a breath of fresh AIR
One of the really exciting features for 2020 is when Saturn makes a brief visit into Aquarius to give us a taste of what he has in store from 2021 when he moves in to stay.
He enters on 23rd March right on the Equinox when our new natural year begins so we see him at 0deg Aqua in the New Moon Chart, so becomes a significant feature underpinning collective activity. He heads up to 2 degrees and stops… then retrogrades back into Capricorn on July 2nd to complete his run through Capricorn until December…then he heads into Aquarius WITH Jupiter as they begin their new 20-year cycle in DECEMBER yay!!. Before then he still has some business to complete with his fellow Gods of Reformation as he dances with Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn to bring us Act 1 of humanities momentous new play!
His last visit to Aquarius was between Feb 1991 & Feb 1994, so check your memory banks for insight into who and where you were at last time, for insights for this next 3 years. This was the beginning of the www techno revolution, thus we can expect another exponential development of global connectivity.
Aquarius is the AIR sign driving the impulse to innovation & original ideas that dare to be different from the conventional as they stimulate fresh change. Aquarius governs the ‘universal consciousness’ that ‘we are all one’ amidst an interconnected system of creation. Spot on right?! Hence Aquarius is the sign of humanitarianism where Leo must send its’ creative impulse to uplift and improve community and society. Lovely. This meant to be the true purpose of our leaders of society. This is why Aquarius is associated with ‘Politics’ and Leo the political leaders, and why we will see a whole new type of leader emerge over coming years.
So, Saturn heading into Aquarius will launch a new phase of reform and change collectively, with potential for an increase in ‘civil disobedience’ and activism in response to the growing right-wing nationalism and authoritarianism. We have already seen the beginning of this during 2019 in Hong Kong and Lebanon and so many other countries as people are fed up with the greedy corrupt systems.
He will bring an amazing stimulus to the whole technological innovation thing as the new space economy becomes more mainstream, and the AI Intelligence reality takes bold new steps. We already know that we have either been ‘data mined’ or freely given away our vital info to god knows who right? Anyway that’s a big story for my main article on Saturn in Aquarius on the way. Meanwhile I wrote an article for the wonderful C*I*A* group called “The New Frontiers” of Saturn in Aquarius” where I explore the new space economy and the major players. Fascinating stuff – you can access here for A$10.
Aquarius rules our role in society as a positive force for bringing in fresh innovative options so we are called to ask how and where may I do this? Thus we will see a rise of ‘grass roots’ community activity that begins to take action beyond limiting government decisions that continue to deny the reality that we must take care of natural systems! This is the Uranus in Taurus energy that kicked in from back in 2028 and continues through to 2025.
Mexit & The Royal Family Story
We had fun on my Astrology of 2020 Seminar day checking the royal charts as Saturn arriving in Aquarius just happens to coincide with Harry & Meghan flying the coop.
First obvious point of interest is Meghan’s Sun in Leo falls EXACT on HRH Moon so Meg is going to stimulate (Sun) affairs to do with Liz’s family (Moon).
With Harry’s Pluto opposite his Gran’s Sun we see the ‘transformation’ he may bring into play in her world, which begins when he marries Meg in May 2018 under the influence of Mars in Aquarius + Uranus in Taurus exactly on Gran’s Sun (once in 84 year cycle – the last time was 1936 when she learnt she would become Queen after her Uncle Edward VIII abdicated!). With Uranus think revolutionary change & new beginnings. Indeed the fact he was allowed to marry a black American divorcee completely fits the bill! A complete break with Taurus tradition!
Now we have Saturn in Aquarius arriving to trigger Liz, Charles, William & Harry’s charts, exactly when Harry & Meg are set to break every protocol of tradition and leave the HRH stakes. Gotta love Astrology isn’t it amazing timings?
Meanwhile Prince Andrew’s chart is also under heavy influence from the transiting Capricorn planet gang.
When his involvement in the Epstein scandal broke last year he had transiting Saturn on his Saturn – otherwise known as a Saturn return. We see he also has Mars & Venus in Capricorn along with Saturn in his 6th house of ‘daily work and service’. Both of these are now receiving transits from Saturn & Jupiter three times this year + Mars in Cap in late March. To date he has not responded to requests from USA authorities for him to give evidence of his involvement in the Epstein cases.
So we can expect further news on this in late March when Mars by transit hits his Venus/Mars. Interesting this coincides with Saturn in Aquarius to Queen’s Sun. Then by May Jupiter by transit arrives on these planets and the news gets big. I do feel sorry for QEII on this one as her favorite son in disgrace is a sad outcome for her.
Anyway just sharing all this astro gossip as another feature of the momentous events of 2020.
Stay positive and shine your light my friends
Much love from Maggie
Greetings friends as we begin to take stock of the tumultuous events of recent weeks courtesy of the once in 500 year ‘Global Reset’ meeting of Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn.
Many thanks to all who made a donation for my 2020 Global Report & Horoscopes where I outlined the massive significance of the unfolding cycles, and in this case I am sorry to report that Astrology has yet again proven to be way too accurate.We are indeed reaping the rewards of the unconscious material world model birthed way back in 1518, and it seems nothing short of catastrophe will force us to begin to clean up our act.
I’ll discuss more on this plus the Corona virus situation in the main section…
On a more positive note we are somewhat free of the ‘heavy Capricorn stuff’ during February as first Mercury enters Pisces on Feb 4th and then Sun into Pisces on Feb 19th.
This is the final stage in our natural year cycle where we release the past & connect to our higher nature to invite inspiration for forward motion after the Equinox on March 21st. With so much fear swirling it’s so important to take time out where you can, rest, reflect, gestate, trust and flow. Your mantra is “I am safe – all is well’.
Send love to all who have suffered loss and bless our poor natural world & the animals.
January 2020 was a ‘Game Changer’!!!!
It’s always fascinating to see how the planet cycles play out in our lives & the world, as even though we Astrologers can make a call that hard line Saturn meeting up with power planet Pluto in Capricorn in January would be a tough combination that would impact social structures, we can’t ‘predict’ the exact events that will come to pass. This is because Astrology studies planet cycles and their history…it is not a fortune telling tool lol. The last time they met in Capricorn was 1518 when the Reformation began and the new world was born.
We have an impressive but daunting list of events that are indeed impacting our ‘social structures’ including the devastating fires here in Oz that are still burning & so far have taken 14,000M acres 37 lives over 2000 homes & a BILLION wildlife. Oz has become the ‘canary on the coalmine’ for the obvious reality that the climate has already changed thus it is imperative we pull out all stops immediately to revision our values to cooperative co-creation to SUSTAINABLE industry!
Major Volcanic activity in the Philippines & flooding in Indonesia – US unprovoked assassination in Iran amping up mid-East tensions – civil unrest in many nations – the bizarre US impeachment ‘trial’ of Trump – Brexit in the UK with huge implications to the ongoing members of the UK and the EU. Then there’s Mexit as Harry & Meghan exit the Royal Firm, and the ongoing threat to Prince Andrew and the Epstein saga. And now we have the latest Corona virus out of China bringing the world into lock down and adding to the already overheated fear meter as everyday people wonder what the hell is going on. More on this below after the planet report…
Let’s do a step by step through January to see how to respond to the interweaving energies…
Mercury enters Pisces – February 3 (11:37 GMT) – On the upside Pisces brings a beautiful opportunity to commune with our higher nature to work with intuition & imagination to incubate further growth…very artistic with a tendency to escapism from worldly concerns. With all the drama happening in our world it is indeed so tempting to turn off the news and disappear right? Very important to rest and reflect & trust your Soul to guide you even if things are not clear. Downside brings confusion and lack of clarity with uncertainty about best next moves, and the need to CHECK FACTS as outright lies & misinformation are a signature of Mercury in Pisces!
2020 Mercury retro periods are in WATER signs thus our MENTAL and VERBAL focus is driven by feeling and intuition, so here is to a whole new level of compassion in our global dialogue and personal interactions. The retro periods are opportunities to re-do, re-evaluate, re-organize, research, review and plan. The God of the ‘mind & mouth’ is set to spend 11 whole weeks in the watery realms of Pisces as he has his first retrograde season here. (Next comes Cancer in June/July & lastly Scorpio in Oct/Nov.)
Mercury turns retrograde @12 Pisces on Feb 17 & heads back into the late degrees of Aquarius before turning direct on 10th March. So rather than buying into feeling frustrated by a lack of direction or clear motivation just stay patient and pause for breath as you mull over next steps. As ever do the Merc retro protocol and back up data, avoid signing contracts as details will be hazy, and re-do re-vise & all the re words you can think of! He does not return to 12 Pisces until 30th March & remains in Pisces until April 11th when he kicks into Aries. SO think of this whole period from Feb 3rd to April 11th as a major pause in proceedings as you gather your inner resources and & tap into Universal Source energy to download fresh inspiration!
Venus enters Aries on Feb 7th – So while our minds & mouths are in feeling mode our Venus relating energy is very active for the rest of Feb until March 5th when she enters her home sign of Taurus. She is quite confident warm and friendly in Aries and enjoys connecting with others without conflict, so here’s to her reasonable vibes prevailing in our lives and on the world stage.
Full Moon @ deg 20 Leo on Feb 9 (07:33 GMT) – I am loving this Full Moon with Mars in Sagittarius in positive connection to Moon in Leo to motivate our personal and global story with snazzy upgrades & changes. Sun in Aquarius drives the essence of humanity and community as an interconnected organism with equal rights for all creatures great and small.
Aquarius brings us the progressive thinkers and inventors who are inspired to improve society, as well as the activists and change agents who dare to confront old guard entrenched systems that have ‘calcified’ and outlived their useful form. We LOVE Aquarius!!! And yes I am one! Aquarius is associated with political systems and the opposite sign Leo with the leaders who are meant to represent the best interests of all.
So this Full Moon with Mars in Sag calls us to demand our leaders and political systems be accountable and act beyond their loyalties to old guard business interests! We can expect some big news internationally re said leaders & their ‘accountability’. Interesting that the Democrat selection process begins under this full Moon. Then there’s the international implications of the Corona Virus.
Mars enters Capricorn on Feb 16 – for 6 weeks until April 1st – The action planet coming in to join the party of planets in Capricorn will trigger next moves in the ‘global reset story’ into March. More on this in the next letter and how and when to use this guy to grow your 2020 success potential. Generally Mars in Cap is exalted or at his best in Cap as he’s able to direct his force with strategic planning toward his goals.
Sun enters Pisces on Feb 19 – Had a big chat about Pisces in the Mercury section so scroll back to refresh your memory.
New Moon @ 4 Pisces on Feb 23 (15:32 GMT) – this is quite a beautiful N Moon with Mars in Cap + Uranus in Taurus in harmonious connections. As Pisces regulates the spread of the emerging Zeitgeist into the collective field I’m getting this will be supported by the new wave of values beyond the unsustainable past.
The Corona Virus story
I have been interested in the whole VIRUS thing since I saw the Horoscope for the New Millennium back in 2000. This is the chart for the next 1,000 years so yes very important right?
Here is what I wrote in 2002 – “I immediately noticed the Moon in Pisces @ 18 degrees in the 6th house of health. I couldn’t help but spontaneously (or was it intuitively) say out loud – ‘this is a plague chart’, and quickly admonished myself for being somewhat dramatic. The Moon in a Mundane or Collective horoscope represents the emotional health of the people – also their capacity for nourishment (food etc) and nurture and Spiritually the Moon is also the group Soul. Moon in Pisces is ruled by Neptune so the emotional health of the group or collective human species is totally linked with the Spiritual health of said human species. So, immune system issues will be a feature as Neptune & Pisces rule the immune system”.
Well we haven’t had a major plague or pandemic to date, with 20 million deaths as was the case with the 1917 Spanish Flu! So please don’t freak out as I am NOT predicting one! But this latest Corona Virus event is the third scare since 2000 and the whole immune system virus thing has been up both in terms of physical health and also in the computer world right? Here are the 3 main outbreaks with the transits to the Moon in Pisces on this chart – very interesting!
- SARS – Nov 02 to July 03 – Pluto in Sag square Moon Pisces 18 deg. Epicenter was China, where the killed 814 globally.
- The 2009 flu pandemic or swine flu lasted from April 2009 to Aug 2010, involving H1N1 influenza virus, albeit in a new version. Epicenter Mexico with approx 201,000 deaths. Saturn in Virgo oppose Moon Pisces & Neptune Aquarius conjunct Venus 26 deg.
- Corona Virus outbreak Jan 2020 – Mars in Sagittarius square Moon Pisces 18 deg in late January. Neptune in Pisces began to conjunct Moon @ 18 deg from May/June/July 2019 with more passes to come in March Oct/Nov/Dec 2020 Jan 2021. As Neptune is the ruler of Pisces his arrival onto the Moon is a once in 164 year event!
At the moment (Feb 5th) there are massive efforts to contain the spread of the virus with over 400 deaths in China & estimates of 20,000 infected. The SARS outbreak back in 2003 was contained within 7 months with relatively few deaths compared to the predicted PANDEMIC. So with Neptune in play for the remainder of 2020 it will be interesting to see how the containment process timing plays out. Just remember the big hype from SARS was very overinflated so at this stage don’t buy into this event being a PANDEMIC.
The Immune system is the invisible energetic system that protects us from incoming harmful virus and bacteria. Energetically it also protects us from harmful & toxic people who drain us of energy if we buy into their stuff.The way to empower yourself right now is to strengthen your IMMUNE system with healthy BOUNDARIES that protect you emotionally. In other words its OK to say NO & be careful who you choose to hang out with & what media you watch.
It is easy to go into feeling overload when we see so much pain & suffering PLUS anger and frustration at the ineptitude of our leaders, so by all means connect with your compassion (also ruled by Neptune & Pisces) and then step back into your healthy objectivity asap! Physically we support the Immune system with masses of good quality Vitamin C plus Broccoli Garlic Ginger Spinach Yogurt Almonds Turmeric Green Tea Papaya Kiwi Sunflower Seeds & Shellfish – and lots of good sleep!
Stay positive and shine your light my friends
Much love from Maggie
Happy 2020 my friends as we step into this brand new decade &era.
It’s been a difficult start for us here in Oz with our unprecedented bush fires with such loss and pain on so many levels. And also for our global community as the threat of war accelerates fear & uncertainty…we simply just don’t need it right now. We just need love & kindness and to honor our vulnerable feelings.
My heart is heavy but my Sagittarian Soul shines on with a spirit of optimism that the best of the human spirit will prevail. 2020 brings us HUGE cosmic shifts that augur the next renaissance and reformation for all global systems, starting with a Lunar Eclipse on Sat 11th & Jan 12th when Saturn meets Pluto in Capricorn for the first time since 1518! So I have lots of amazing info & ideas to share with you about this biggie plus lots of other era shifts in the Cosmic Calendar!
I have decided to offer it by donation this year (scroll down), as I need to place value on the many months of work and research and writing that goes into it as I cover business/politics in some depth and also supportive tools for healing and empowering our evolution as we step between the past and the future.
SO even if you can only afford $1 that just fine and much appreciated – and there are a few other options. Many thanks in advance to my dear readers, friends, students and clients gathered over the many years of my career. I love you all. And thanks to many who have mailed to check in about the fires so kind. I’m 1000k north…it’s a big country…and so much of it is burning.
Meanwhile I am late this year with my big report as I ended up in hospital over xmas and new year having two operations to repair my leg after an accident…oh joy…not! I’m now home in my moon boot confined to barracks and have finally put the finishing touches to my little epic…

Greetings fellow travelers as Sun heads through Sagittarius until Dec 222nd, enriching our lives with a much needed dose of optimism in these intensely bizarre & difficult times! KEEP THE FAITH that a new order is about to be birthed as we head into 2020!!!!!
Just a quickie this month with a brief mention of cosmic highlights, as I am busy writing my BIG 2020 Global Report…stay tuned for my next email!
New Moon @ 4 Sagittarius on Nov 26th is supercharged with Jupiter in Sag for the last time in 12 years! Make the most of the fun & adventurous positive spirit on this one kids & use it to seed your 2020 with fresh vision & purpose. Write your new STORY for what you want your life to look like!! Incoming opportunities abound, & with Uranus triggering Mars in Scorpio on the NMoon things morph out of old stagnant territory pronto!
The big news is the arrival of expansive Jupiter into the sign of Capricorn on the December 3rd.
Full Moon @ 19 deg Sag/Gemini Dec 12th – this one is driven by Jupiter freshly in Capricorn & has strong aspects with Venus/Saturn/Pluto in Cap. This drives the VISION for the epoch shifting force of 2020.
Next comes the New Moon Solar Eclipse on Dec 26th @ 4 deg Capricorn…with Jupiter…paving the way for the Global Reset on January 12th. Previous 19 cycle was Dec 2000 just before the world changed in 2001 with 9/11. Always wise to avoid major decisions or moves 2 weeks before & after although if your chart is triggered then sometimes the Universe gets things moving for you anyway! The Eclipse path falls through Indonesia so heads up for nature being kind.
As we prepare to head into 2020 our focus must encompass the complete ecosystem that drives Mother Earth and the urgent need to heal & restore her with co-operative intelligent design – physically, politically, economically and spiritually.
Seasons greetings to all – we are all ONE! Feel free to share this and let me know how you’re traveling!
|We are in for a pretty full on Scorpio season folks with the New Moon on Oct 28th – then Mercury begins his retro phase with a major highlight on Nov 11th when he ‘eclipses’ the Sun!
New Moon @ 4 Scorpio exactly opposed by Uranus in Taurus will bring surprises and unexpected developments with a keynote of FREEDOM from old beliefs we hold about prosperity V scarcity. Uranus ‘the awakener’ can trigger seismic shifts both on the earth i.e. quakes and financial markets plus our higher mind!. Upside let’s go for fab new techno advances to heal & protect mother earth!
Mercury retrograde Oct 31st @ 27 Scorpio until Nov 20th – but doesn’t come out of his ‘shadow zone’ until Dec 8th. The usual cautions with ‘the trickster’ in backwards mode apply! Backup data – stay adaptable as plans change or info goes haywire – don’t sign contracts. Great for research and deep transformational conversations & musings with your unconscious mind!
BTW Brexit was always a no go with Merc retro on the day lol. It was also retro last time plus on the day of the vote!! When will they finally check in with Astrology before they make plans haha!
Mercury Eclipse to the Sun in Nov 11th @ 19 degrees Scorpio. Haven’t had one of these since Nov 2006! Historically this Eclipse cycle involves money & resources i.e.Taurus/Scorpio the only signs in which Mercury Eclipses occur & only when Mercury is retrograde.
Mars continues his run through Libra squaring Saturn on the New Moon. Downside brings low energy & heavy vibes so don’t buy into the fear machine or depression! Upside is great for directing energy strategically & getting stuff done! Mars then squares Pluto on Nov 5th auguring power struggles & ruthlessness so NOT a day for confrontations folks! Upside brings a powerful creative burst that can transform your world!
Full Moon @ 19 deg Scorp/Taurus on Nov 12th – the day after the Mercury Eclipse! Here’s to some major revelations of info certain people would rather stay buried plus money matters coming to a head. On the other hand, expect a flurry of ‘secret meetings’ & deals.
Venus into Sagittarius on Nov 2nd lightens the intense November load with her bright optimism and positivity joining Jupiter in the sky on Nov 25th as Sun also heads into Sag. Don’t miss this gorgeous celestial event…look up people and be inspired.
Mars heads into Scorpio on Nov 20th for the rest of the year so do your best to keep transforming into your power and stay positive in these intense shifting times my friends.
Coming into our power with the deep regenerative forces of Scorpio…
It is oh so easy to feel overwhelmed by the daily news of endless strife as we witness the breakdown of our society, and feel powerless to do anything as an individual in the face of relentless control and stupidity by the majority of our business and political ‘leaders’!
This is where our personal relationship with the Scorpionic death/rebirth process comes into the unfolding story of our times. We have been conditioned by our system to believe we are powerless, but we are not!!
Scorpio is the power to seed the life we wish to create from deep within us. We’ve been studying to be ‘metaphysicians’ for a while now folks, so we’re meant to have ‘got it’ that our energy creates and magnetizes our outcomes…right?
Once we know that it is only our Ego/Mind keeping us in our fears and confusions, and that our Soul knows the way we open the magical flow known as the ‘stream of consciousness’ and step into our flow. Fabulous!!
Scorpio is the invisible source essence in our nature containing regenerative power, and the secret lies in knowing that we are ‘magnetic’. So, ask yourself what do you want/need to magnetize for the next stage of your life? And what or who do you need to release?
And to get to our safe power we can also use the Scorpio process to just let go…of old shitty feelings…of the belief that we have to control…old defenses we use to protect our true feelings…the belief that softness and vulnerability isn’t safe! Yep it’s re-birth time!
Scorpio is the feature within our humanity that creates deep bonds through intimacy and trust to invite safe support from others. Once we feel ‘safe’ we no longer need to control others and we can release the lower nature features of Scorpio like jealousy and revenge and manipulation…all the bad press items!
As long as there are still people willing to stand in their power for justice & truth, there is still reason to hope that our beautiful world and all of us will emerge through our collective ‘dark night of the Soul’ into the Aquarian Age just around the corner!
Love and blessings to you all. Feel free to share this and let me know how you’re traveling…
Equinox Greetings as Sun heads into Libra to join Mercury and Venus, & then Mars from October 4th through to November 20th. Yep lots of Libra for the next 7 weeks!
So we are now half way through the Natural Year from March 23rd when Sun in Aries birthed our activities. Think of this like the ‘full moon for the year’ that lights the way for the next 6 months!
Libra’s highest goal is “right human relations’ so let this be your guide as you negotiate & in some cases renegotiate the people who populate your life. It asks us to co-operate and collaborate and seek balance & harmony both within and without. Essential qualities in these divisive extreme times right?
It’s also the sign of Public Relations so excellent timing for promoting yourself & services, and the whole theme of deals & negotiations will be front line both personally & globally. I’ll cover the US/China trade war + charts in the main section.
So how is the synchronicity of our young heroine Greta Thunberg delivering her passionate speech to the United Nations on the EXACT day of Sun’s arrival into Libra!
Why does a 15 year old girl have to do what our so called leaders will not? To simply speak the truth that our current economic system is literally killing our ecosystems based on greed and enrichment of the few at the expense of the many!!!!!!!!!!
|And let’s not forget globally millions peacefully marching to demand a sustainable future. Yes my friends it’s all coming to a head as we head toward the “global reset” from 2020 when Jupiter joins Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn with Uranus in Taurus…for the first time since 3838BCE…yes 5000 years ago. This was the time when the Gods took over from the ancient Goddesses and patriarchal culture was born & we’ve been driven by the unconscious ARIES warrior programming ever since.
Our destiny is to now birth the next epoch driven by the conscious LIBRA program of peaceful coexistence in harmony with nature and each other.
New Moon in Libra @ 5 degrees occurs on the Sept 28th
This is a big one for the ‘trade war’ drama as sets off both US & China chart big time.
Central wheel is USA – middle wheel is China – outer wheel is New Moon @ 5 Libra.
Not an ideal time to calmly strike a deal with China especially with in China’s case Saturn squaring natal Mercury ruling conversations about commerce. Note also China Uranus falls on USA Jupiter in Cancer – both being hard squared from the New Moon. The battle is about to be amped up another big notch.
I am fascinated by this unfolding story as these two superpowers do battle for dominance as we head into 2020. The reality is that both countries carry hideous debt revealing the knife edge of the global ponzi scheme about to unravel…one way or another. Ah such interesting times in which we live.
Historically October beings us major stock market reversals so eyes open for October 8th and 25th when Saturn and Mars both square off to USA Sun AND China Mercury. These could be precursor hints of the downside stress of the big highs and lows from Jupiter in Sagittarius during 2019. Expect more big highs from Jupiter through to December when he enters Capricorn and then in Jan 2020 Saturn in Cap hits a hard aspect to the New York Stock Exchange Chart Moon in Aries. In response to the fear and uncertainty and ‘irrational exuberance’ the Gold price is starting to head up!
Mind you the Full Moon Libra/Aries on October 14th @ 20 degrees is squared by Pluto in Libra EXACT and does hit the NYSE Moon. This will unleash powerful forces that seek to control…both personally & collectively. At best we can use this to strengthen & empower our individual drive by inviting support from others. As ever we shall see quite how these forces play out!
OK that’s it from me for now my friends please use this information to support your awareness without buying into fear and uncertainty. Just make like an ‘observer’ as we witness the global chess game of our time as you send your intention to be part of the new paradigm based on win win peaceful co-operation beyond the struggle for superiority and power over others.
Blessings and love to you all Maggie
