This week is most significant in that Jupiter and Saturn form another exact midpoint to Pluto - a picture which is not only potent in its capacity to overturn entire fortunes, but as Mars squares this point on Tue/Wed, he introduces extra duress and irritation into the game, as if to force drastic reaction to his individual ends
Believe it or not, you too are part of the hell and fury of these times, and whether you join the brigades that are currently mustering toward a higher (or lower) plane, you will become a part of the historical transformation that is taking place on planet earth.
With both the Cancer Moon and opposing Saturn dignified in this 180° standoff, life proffers us the uncomfortable prospect of feelings vs duty and obligation, viewed as rather a serious business in which 'doing the right thing' becomes tantamount, even if this means ignoring our instincts and emotions... or so it may seem.

If nothing else, last week's Lunar Eclipse has distinguished just how trapped and dissonant our private, inner-child experiences have become from everything being drummed into us by the grown-up world of social, religious, academic and political influence and indoctrination.
We are heading into another very intense week of life-altering activity. As much as we might like to keep a smiley face on our mask, we are best reminded that underneath it all, things aren't so rosy at all during this intense period of the reconstruction.
This is a most important week, with multiple conjunctions launching us into myriad new roads. Meawhile, a daunting Capricorn lunation stands to tear us apart over the nitty gritty issues of personal, family and social duties.
This is shaping up to be quite a year. In the wake of the shadow cast on this earth by arguably the most potent North Node eclipse of our times, we are ready to emerge anew.
There is no way to separate what's true and what's not among those who are easily lead, and the choice to turn off rather than to try to listen to all sides becomes a major hurdle. It is a perplexing conundrum, and this week challenges us at the core of our existence - our sense of safety and security.
Following last week's potent and ideologically divisive Lunar Eclipse, we find ourselves sinking deeper into a strange, impossible-to-follow vortex of dissolution and dissociation from any semblance of reality.
Can you feel that we are in eclipse season? Yes, June promises to be a tumultuous month...
It's the end of May, and with several planets stationing to retrograde recently, it seems that much in our lives is currently at a standstill as we prepare to revisit the new old ground.
In a world crippled by chaotic currents, the duality of vastly increased access to data and information in a relatively data-illiterate population, one which lacks both the sophistication and statistical training to understand how to properly use that data to draw conclusions, creates even further turbulence and confusion...
An epic week ahead, which forces us to turn our attention to the aftermath of these past few months and see what we make of it.
How will we remember this year? Sure, we're only one-third of the way into 2020 but, by outer-planetary zodiac coverage, these first 4 months have already provided a flashing glimpse of what we might be dealing with until Nov-Dec.
Outermost Pluto slows to a grinding halt, turning retrograde, and we at once feel an ominous force pushing us to deal with our most intimate, vulnerable, well-repressed secret.
These are phenomenal 'times of change', and the necessary regeneration begins to takes a heavy toll upon the organism's otherwise indomitable human spirit.
As the North Node pulls into its final, critical degree of Cancer, you may feel the need for homecoming in your heart; a strong pull towards family connections, your sentimental nature and to be closely in touch with the richness of your emotions.
During periods of great stress, anxiety, loneliness, and alienation, our health is most prone to suffer from the anxiety-related disorders which we attribute to the effects of social isolation or social-distancing itself. It can be a time when we are forced to assess and re-balance our lives accordingly.
So this is it now. The world of this virus pandemic, the social-distancing, self-quarantining, flattening the curve and all the strange new things we have to deal with in our ever more cloistered and socially-confined new lives. How long does this go on? When and how will this end?
'Intense' hardly cuts it. This is perhaps one of the most intense weeks ever, and on the back of the Vernal Equinox, it becomes the crucial tipping point for a brave new reality - when day slowly descends to night, and night vanishes into day...
Let’s take a look outwards for a moment: Arguably, the current state of our world …
Who are we kidding? And who are we allowing to keep kidding us, telling us …
The mirth, laughter, heartache and disarray continues to build up nicely throughout the week as …
A slightly tetchy week, not without its fair share of excitement, vigour and bouts of quick-temper over... well, who knows what, exactly...
Pressure of a whole new kind emerges significantly into our lives as Mars now joins …
Ahh... remember the old Chinese curse: 愿你生活在有趣的时代 (may you live in interesting times) ? It appears to have gone viral...
Since last week's Saturn/Pluto conjunction, it looks like the genie's out of the most problematic bottles in our world.
Just so there are no cosmic misconceptions, we are living in really 'special' times. I'm probably repeating myself a little here but how else are we supposed to learn? Oh, you've noticed? You're feeling a definite "vibe"?
