Jan 2021 Report – Our New Aquarian Era + 2021 Podcast & Horoscopes

Welcome to 2021 my friends!
Here are your Free Horoscopes
I hope this guidance helps you navigate and empower your lives

I have another gift for you…this Podcast with a great business lady from Melbourne Anne Wicking where we talk up the whole 2021 story.

Greetings friends I’m sending my best wishes to you for a wonderful 2021 on the way for your life and those you love…and for our dear Planet Earth and her creatures great and small.
My takeout from the whole 2020 drama has been learning to really live in the moment as I witness the swirling chaos of the global Covid crisis and the high tension in the USA political process…and so many other issues right? And as I can’t make any plans to go places anyway then hey it really is ‘be here now’ and find contentment in the small things.
And I know so many are really doing it tough right now so to you I say please don’t give up and lose hope, as this new era does indeed contain the seeds of liberation from the past as the old order is passing and a new conscious force is striving to be born.

This is what is on offer from the meeting of Jupiter with Saturn in Aquarius to open a new 200 year cycle of their meetings in AIR signs = ‘Change is in the AIR”.
Here isJupiter & Saturn in Aquarius 2021 my Jupiter Saturn in Aquarius article

So no matter how nuts things get ‘out there’ just remember that personally January contains ‘freedom’ to move forward, a time to act fast, get things moving and line up new plans and ideas.
Best dates here are on the 11th and 29th when lucky Jupiter is activated.
We also have ‘mind & mouth’ planet Mercury heading into Aquarius on Jan 8th and he is here right through until mid-March as he turns retro on the 30th so get your forward motion stuff done by then OK?

On Jan 17th expansive Jupiter connects with change agent Uranus – a lively combo to say the least! At best  this excites the urge for adventure and freedom so risks will pay off now if you’re ready to take a leap of faith. Just ensure you can be flexible & adaptable too.
Activator planet Mars has just spent 6 months in his sign Aries and exited with a blast as he triggered Trump’s Mars in Leo and then entered Taurus on Jan 6th…a day that will live in history with the storming of the Capitol Building by Trump supporters.

In ‘normal times’ this would be a nice change for his high octane force as his focus in Taurus is about stability and security…however…yes you knew I was going to say that…he makes three challenging aspects with the planets in Aquarius as follows:

Mars square Saturn in Aquarius on the 14th & 15th
Mars square Uranus in Taurus on the 20th & 21st
Mars square Jupiter In Aquarius on the 22nd & 23rd
Without unpacking this individually let’s just say these are highly volatile and unpredictable trigger points between the 14th and 23rd.
They also offer a grand opportunity to ‘step outside’ the box as you dare to re-invent your life!!
Especially as the Sun also enters Aquarius on Jan 20th and connects with all of the above during the rest of January.

As these timings are ‘Universal’ i.e. they apply to our whole planet this is not just about the potential for civil unrest in the USA, although this is a distinct possibility. (Note…I wrote this last week as I have been waiting for the link to the Podcast hence delay in my sending this January letter.)
As usual I will do my positive take on things and simply say January will bring us the beginning of the Aquarian revolution beginning in 2021.
Let it be a PEACEFUL REVOLUTION as we all take responsibility for healing our personal and global relations and our beautiful Mother Earth.
If you would like to make a donation toward these articles and my ongoing monthly newsletters I am very grateful.
Many thanks and I send love for a peaceful prosperous 2021.

Dec 2020 Update – Eclipses signal bye bye 2020 & HELLO 2021!

Bye bye 2020Sagittarius season is particularly exciting this year with a Lunar Eclipse on Nov 30th paving the way for the amazing finale to this crazy unforgettable year as December opens.
It falls at 8 deg Sag/Gemini – right on USA Uranus – yep change is on the way!
After the heavy EARTH energies of the past 3 years who isn’t ready for a blast of exuberant Sagittarius FIRE to re-ignite our passion & excitement for the new era on the way!
PLUS our little trickster mental master Mercury is finally completing his 8 weeks in deep dark Scorpio where his ‘depression’ feature has been so very challenging!!
He joins the Sun in Sag on Dec 2nd to uplift our thoughts and words with optimism & expansive ideas, and as we are heading into an Aquarian future then nothing is too ingenious or unconventional. Your craziest idea could be the safest…lol.
We also have Mars moving forward in Aries at last after 10 long weeks in holding pattern, and he is in excellent aspect to the Solar Eclipse on Dec 14th  @ 23 deg Sag. Thus things will move forward quickly after mid-Dec both personally & collectively. Interesting that this coincides with the USA Electoral college announcement.
Eclipses are ‘portals’ between life phases so if you are a Sag, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces this eclipse cycle is big for you and may open sudden new pathways.
It is wise to avoid big decisions until a few weeks after but hey sometimes the Universe makes them for you right?
Generally this Solar Eclipse activates large scale ‘dissemination’…of knowledge or information at an international level. Maybe this fits with the Vaccine distribution process beginning, and definitely involves the geo-political chess game shifts on the way under the new USA admin by late January.
BTW the previous Solar Eclipse in this series was December 2001…after which the world changed in oh so many ways.
At best this is archetypal explorer into new horizons territory. Indeed a precursor for the radical Aquarian forces on the way as we reach the Dec 21st Solstice point…when both JUPITER and SATURN meet @ ZERO degrees Aquarius!
Bells & whistles & drum rolls people!
This meeting opens not only a new 20 year cycle for these 2 rulers of the social order – they always meet in even number decades – but also a whole new cycle in Aquarius for the next 200 years! The last time on this huge cycle was in 1226!
Stay tuned for my Jan 2021 letter where I’ll cover the massive implications on this one, but in a nutshell it kicks us forward another notch into the 2000 year Age of Aquarius – & your horoscopes for how this impacts you.
SO yes my friends December is bye bye to the heavy tough Capricorn 2020 story & hello to the year of re-invention in 2021.

SagSagittarius Season Ignites Fresh Purpose &  Direction for 2021!
So where are you inspired to fire your arrows?

After a month in the deep dark transformative waters of Scorpio it’s time to head back out into the world freshly empowered and ready to jump on our trusty horse and own our heroic nature.
Sag is the 9th sign of the Zodiac round, igniting the intrinsic human force that drives us forward into unknown futures in full faith & trust that we will prosper if we stay true to our belief that our purpose is to serve our world…and not just ourselves!
The Hero is the most primitive motif in all cultures…brave and fearless…but also innocent and trusting that somehow the Grail or Golden Fleece is worth the effort to redeem something that has been lost and broken.
Never have we needed our Heroic nature more than right now! So find yourself a Hero in myth or pop culture to inspire you and say the mantra “I am a Hero who has faith I will grow and prosper”.
Sag rules all manner of territory associated with ‘higher learning, truth, dissemination of knowledge, and beliefs’. Thus the media, publishing, education,writing, teaching plus travel and adventure, as this is the sign of seeking!!
Sag is ruled by the fab planet Jupiter – the planet of luck and optimism and enthusiasm. Always seeing the glass half full and that the world is a wonderful place full of opportunity and serendipity.
I LOVE SAG and yes I have Saggie Moon Soul – sometimes accused of being a hopeless optimist but hey what’s the alternative?
On a more serious note the issue of TRUTH and LIES has been front and center in recent times and never more so than right now as these eclipses bring home the essence of the power of media and propaganda to influence our thoughts and decisions.
When we combine this with the Sag BELIEFS territory we must take time & be critical thinkers to examine our own beliefs and just how much they are motivated by mass media and a ‘party line’, or influenced by an ‘us & them’  right or wrong story.
Jupiter & Sag makes things BIG and blows things out of proportion with ‘intolerance’ a major downside.
Personally I strive to remain ‘objective’ as I witness unfolding events and narratives and check in with my heart as to what feels true to my Aquarian ideals. Does an idea or person contribute to making the world a better place for all the kingdoms of nature? The keynote of the Aquarian era from Jan 2021 is driven by conscious co-operation, cohesion and restoring balance and harmony via peaceful solutions.

Love and blessings to you all from Maggie

September Astro Guidance – Practical Virgo tips for Managing Turbulent Times

Sky over TasmaniaThis pic of a cloud formation in Tasmania a few days ago really captured my imagination, as it is not a dangerous storm just a phenomena…and I feel this sums things up as we head into September.

Yes things can look & feel very foreboding but just think of it as maximum stress…things coming to a head…but also containing a grand opportunity to start to do things differently as we head into 2021!
Yes we are in some maxed out turbulence as Mars in Aries squares up to Saturn all month, so we need our wits about us and skill in navigating our little boat through the chop.
Read on…

August 2020 Sun in Leo meets Mars in Aries!

GreetiSun in Leongs friends as we continue to venture onward in this Global Re-set Year that requires us to be the best that we can be in the midst of the meltdown!
After four months of feeling like we are in some kind of infernal loop courtesy of Venus in Gemini since April + long term Mercury in Cancer + the Capricorn team grinding away in Capricorn, August brings an opening of fresh energy and action…and hopefully some clarity after endless confusion & uncertainty.
Things get moving with the Full Moon on the 3rd with Sun in Leo opposite Moon in Aquarius with ‘change agent’ Uranus to bring sudden shifts re ‘leaders’ & politics…and another dose of social activism. Personally it’s about innovation, stepping out of the box and trying new pathways!

July Astro Guidance – here comes Mars in Aries

297I 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…
Mercury is also in Cancer with the Sun, and he’s in retro backwards motion so keep revising reworking reorganizing and all the re words until July 12th when he turns direct. But even then he’s low key until early August when he heads into Leo and our thoughts & words are re-energized with a fresh creative hit!
Venus completes her 4 months dance through Gemini and she’s in full swing after her retro time in June. So don’t miss this final blast of ‘versatile adaptable quick clever ideas & connections’ as you co-create your re-invention process. She has also heightened the 2 polarized positions – right/left etc, plus the way the crisis has driven many into great hardship, whilst others have been flourishing in the midst of the chaos.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse July 5th – Sun @ 13 Cancer opposite Moon Capricorn (final from the cycle from June). Another rather tense & restrictive period on the way from this one. This is on the Sun of the USA Horoscope so another tough month on the way.
New Moon @ 28 deg Cancer on July 20th brings us our final ‘hard’ hit from Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto opposite in Capricorn = a last blast of major restrictions before some relief arrives with the next
Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius with Uranus in Taurus on August 3rd = surprising unexpected fresh shifts financially & politically!

I welcome you to book a session if you need or would like any support as we pass through this challenging 2020 process

And if you missed my big 150 page 2020 Global Report here it is

Read on for for Mars in Aries & your Horoscopes…

Mars in Aries - Retrograde 2020This 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.
We are challenged to master our Mars by creating ‘healthy assertiveness’ and if you’re still using your anger to control people then give it up! Our whole world is angry right now… justifiably as the system stinks…but allowing anger and thoughtless impulsiveness to drive us is dangerous both psychically and emotionally…and just feeds the negative forces.
He makes three major ‘challenging’ aspects to the Jupiter + Saturn + Pluto in Capricorn team, and these are very significant as they will be trigger points for the major government & business restructures on the way in 2020.

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!
Finally, we have Mars in Aries square Pluto three times – mid August,  then 8th to 11th October & finally during Xmas week! At best this is a powerfully transforming force energizing us at a very deep level in our ambitions and desire to get ahead – at worst a time of fierce power struggles and disagreements so can be very destructive. So, tread softly on these timings as underhanded tactics will backfire badly on this one!  Avoid dangerous people and places as you work toward your goals with determination and clean assertiveness! Collectively these will probably be hard-line authority periods.

Stay positive and confident to get the best out of Mars over the next 6 months!

Mars spends the rest of 2020 in Aries – he turns retrograde @ 28 degrees on 10th September – he stations at 15 deg November 14th – then full speed ahead through to the end of the year & into Jan 2021.
Here’s quick overview for each sign
Aries                         This is a big deal for Rams as when the Lord of his own sign is home in that sign, he is EXTRA powerful in his drive to initiate and pioneer new frontiers. Good luck trying to hold this one ‘back on the farm’ when he urges you toward your bravest nature until early 2021. Courage and confidence our your best assets, with a caution to look before you leap, stay practical and invite co-operative support…and avoid conflict!
Taurus                    Mars is now in your 12th House, thus behind the scenes for the rest of 2020 offering a period of retreat so you can gestate fresh dreams for your 2021 future. This is the zone of your life that inspires your spiritual and psychological growth through study and reflection in these areas.
Gemini                   Mars in Aries suits Twin people perfectly as he will now stimulate heaps of social connections via your 11th house of ‘community, groups & society’ to widen your horizons and bring you into contact with stimulating people & ideas…your favorite territory. Just remember to be pro-active in your contacts rather than reactive.
Cancer                   As Mars is now in your 10th house of career you’ll feel an escalation in your drive and ambition to achieve in worldly areas, and indeed you can do some major pioneering in the second half of 2020. Just be aware that Mars in Aries likes to ‘do his own thing’ as an independent agent as isn’t very patient with authority or control from others, so the big warning here is to avoid conflict and tread lightly so you don’t arouse opposition from others.
Leo                        Mars in Aries is a fab force for Leos as his fire drive for fresh action is now heading through your 9th house of ‘higher learning writing & teaching’. So this brings an exciting phase to expand your horizons both locally and internationally. The caution here is to avoid preaching or judging others views. We all have the right to free speech!
Virgo                    So how do our earthy Virgos make the most of Mars in Aries for the next 6 months when he is lying low in your 8th house of ‘shared resources’? By investing your energy in lots of research and investigation of subjects close to your heart, as you also take action to re-organize your financial world. Also great for release old models that no longer serve you both physically and emotionally.
Libra                    Mars in Aries will be front and center in your 7th house ‘relationship zone’ for the second half of the year, and will stimulate…to say the least…your need to free up old stale relating patterns…and partners for that matter! At best he offers action for PR & marketing of your goals and projects as he brings confidence and enthusiasm to drive you forward into fresh territory.
Scorpio              Mars in Aries directs your focus and drive into your 6th house of ‘daily work service and health’ for the rest of the year so excellent timing to initiate new territory in these areas. Mars is an independent drive and asks you to be pro-active in your own right rather than waiting for others to implement fresh solutions, models and systems.
Sagittarius       As you are the third fire sign you will love Mars in Aries as he brings a splendid fresh force to your 5th house of ‘creativity, motivation and leadership’! As we are in urgent need of wise teachings and teachers you will spend the rest of 2020 expanding our world in these areas as a positive force for co-operative re-invention.
Capricorn         This Mars period is especially important as he’s in your 4th  House of ‘home and family’ so it’s all about ‘foundations’. At best Mars brings energy & activity so you can get heaps accomplished on the home front or you may be on the move into a new home completely. But as Mars likes to do things his way you may be challenged to manage family members who resist your agenda, or they may have theirs and you aren’t too pleased about it.
Aquarius           Mars in Aries brings a much needed fresh impulse to your 3rd house of ‘communication & networking’ so this is an excellent synergy for the ‘seed planters’ of the Zodiac…yes you! Never has it been more vital for us to embrace the co-operative community essence of Aquarius, and for sharing your progressive inventive ideas!
Pisces                Fish people now have the next 6 months to revitalize and activate your 2nd house of ‘resources, money & values’ and as Mars in Aries requires being a self starter rather than your more natural passive self then ‘fortune favors the brave’ right now. This is also about building & developing the resources you need to grow your life into 2021.

Stay positive dear people and keep your hearts and eyes open and clear!
Blessings and love from Maggie

June Astro – Eclipses + Mercury & Venus Retrograde

Solar EclipseGreetings 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.

And if you missed my big 150 page 2020 Global Report here it is

Venus MandalaThis 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

Astro Guidance for May 2020 – Full Buddha Moon & Nodes Changing Sign

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!

Taurus Full MoonSo 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!

Retrograde Season & Nodes Changing Signs

North Node GeminiA 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…

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

Astro Insights for April 2020

Saturn in Aquarius

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.
The planes ✈️ have stopped, cars ? have stopped, the world ? as a whole has pretty much stopped and the Co2 levels have dropped!
Regardless of the many theories about how this COVID arrived to play it’s part in the global transition, my simple call is that Gaia has been letting us know she is in trouble for decades and she finally got over waiting for us to do something about it.

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.
As the ruler of Aquarius he resides over the evolution of the very consciousness that underpins society. His humanitarian principle drives the reality that ‘WE ARE ALL ONE” as part of the interconnected web of creation. His electrical energies are sudden & disruptive & shocking as he AWAKENS & LIBERATES us from the past toward the future.
As Saturn now ventures into Aquarius we are challenged to begin to take responsibility for our part in our global family as we re-invent the systems that run our world. So in this sense I feel the excitement of this new wave, as I also feel the grief as the old is passing away…
The question becomes are we ready as a collective to make the giant leap that will radically change the redundant value systems once the lights go on again?
Or is this the ‘end game’ containing the opportunity for ‘the powers that be’ to do the one world government cashless society thing? We shall…as they say…see.

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!

Venus in Gemini - Retrograde 2020

In my 2020 Global Report written back in late 2019 I talked up this 4 month Venus in Gemini time as…
“She heads into Gemini on April 4th and remains there for 4 months until 7th August. Collectively this offers much needed  conversations containing the ideas that will re-invigorate and inspire the global reform from 2020.
She brings another splendid ingredient into our unfolding evolution via her connections with fabulous ideas and people to help grow our story. Venus in Gemini is quick and adaptable and loves movement and travel so take note of those words as this is what we need to be between April and August…clever quick and adaptable.
Gemini is also associated with commerce, and Venus brings us partners and others with whom we can build co-operative projects. The question from Venus in Gemini is “what do you need to say or share and how may you use partnerships plus IT & technology to do this?” Very exciting.
This 4-month window is also fab for teaching or podcasting or generally sharing knowledge, or attending seminars and so on, or just being social. Generally, lots of fun on offer from Venus during this period.”

OK so apart from the ‘physical travel’ bit the rest is still absolutely relevant…indeed even more so now we are all in physical distance as the whole IT social network thing is so vitally important so we can keep in touch with loved ones and tell them we love them and get some virtual hugs!
This also brings an unprecedented shift in business operations as companies scramble to bring in ‘remote’ work place practices, and begin to re-purpose in ingenious new ways!
Also for this fab opportunity to study things you’ve never had time for like my Astrology Course!!!

As Gemini rules ‘the mind and mouth’ and Venus bring gifts, then her sojourn for 4 months here also offers us an amazing opportunity to learn how to manage our minds in these complex and disorientating times. I’ll share some ideas on this in the main section PLUS          I work with lots of this material in the Astrology e-Course as I integrate many therapy models and tools to support our growth as a conscious ‘whole person’!

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

  • On April 3rd Venus joins this fresh new team as she heads into Gemini for her 4 month stint AND
  • In early May we also have the North Node (or destiny point) also heading into Gemini for the next 18 months!

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
Shock – Initial paralysis at hearing bad news
Denial – Trying to avoid the inevitable
Anger – Frustrated outpouring of bottled up emotion
Bargaining – Seeking in vain for a way out
Depression – Final realization of the inevitable
Testing – Seeking realistic solutions
Acceptance – Finding the way forward

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.)
Hence, potential greater health that can be generated currently – is through the visualisation of vital prana, circulating dynamically through the planetary etheric body, through its myriad networks of energy lines or nadis. This can be done individually or in group meditation by millions around the world.
Currently the planet is experiencing clean air and clear skies in many of its major cities for the first time in decades. This situation must be capitalized upon through group meditations that have the capacity to flush out many planetary toxins.
As above, so below. This big picture meditation will have personal benefits, but individuals may want to focus on their own etheric health as well. Using various colors, depending upon personal preferences – violet, white or golden sun rays.
See them pouring through the etheric body that envelops the physical, expanding and scintillating your personal energy network. Invoke the energies of your own soul to pour down its vital healing force through all the vehicles of the personality – mental, astral and etheric-physical. There is the virus and general health prophylactic.
Then extend your own personal field to your family, local environment, community, city, nation – eventually encompassing the entire planet, linking up with friends and groups everywhere. Keep visualizing and connecting on a daily basis – this will stimulate a global “100th monkey effect” – that will catch on and be adopted intuitively by others; where the pandemic of fear will be replaced by caring strategies for world health – an inner “world health organization”.
Many groups are already making efforts in these kind of directions. Can we imagine how the collective powerlessness that people are experiencing right now, can flip in a relatively short time – by participating in this daily ritual?
Physical health and immunity will be easily and automatically improved but more importantly, it will have a reflexive effect upon the other planetary mental and astral bodies, infusing them with greater vitality for purification              Phillip Lindsay

March Astro Update with Dynamic Aries New Moon

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…

New Moon Aries 2020














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.

Prince Andrew














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
