Is there anything more New Moon on Neptune with Mars and Uranus Dancing than the Oscars ClusterFuck?

Is there anything more New Moon on Neptune with Mars and Uranus Dancing than the Oscars ClusterFuck?

So today the moon met the Sun on top of Neptune. They danced. They drank. Oh how they laughed. Oh how they cried. Neptune weaved her spells of mist and magic, of confusion and deceit and hurt and lo! The Oscars. First the Memorial wall showed a woman who is very much alive. Pluto what were you doing? I just know you were involved. And then the wrong Best Picture award was handed out. For a moment the shiny star, the golden statue that is Hollywood faltered, we saw behind the veil that is behind the veil. 

The singing, the dancing, the laughing, the crying stopped. For one dizzy moment all was still. Mars, Uranus and Jupiter faced off…

And then it was back to fairy dust and make believe.

Fuck I love Hollywood. Those crazy crazy kids.

[The craycrays aren’t finished yet, oh no siree they are just getting started]

Mars exact with Uranus in Aries, opp exact Jupiter in Libra with Moon conj Sun conj Neptune in Pisces.  That’ll do it.

4 of Swords #Today #Tarot

4 of Swords #Today #Tarot

Chillax with Netflix if life has been busy/stressful lately, no? 

I must admit, I like it when the 4 of Swords comes up. Time to chill, veg on the sofa, snooze in bed. It can be the card of sickness and hospitals particularly if you have been too stressed by other Sword situations and it’s brought you low, but there is something about the recovery in 4 of Swords that makes me reach for leek and potato soup and an old movie that I really enjoy. What shall it be tonight? The Sound of Music? The Long Kiss Goodnight? or shall we just listen to some classical music? You decide, I’ve made enough decisions lately.

What will this card bring for you today? It’s Friday 6th January 2017 so maybe give up on the Friday night drinks and head home? It’s not like you haven’t partied all year so far! :p

FYI yesterdays 2 of Pentacles ended up being me not doing anything on my to-do list but just tidying up and find a spot for everything. I do think Pentacles like order and neatness. 🙂


January 1st 2017: Mars conjunct Neptune Astrology

January 1st 2017: Mars conjunct Neptune Astrology

Mars is currently dancing with Neptune in Pisces. Mars doesn’t really like to get up on the dancefloor but Neptune in her own sign is insistent. YOU WILL dance, step forward, back and sideways to a half hidden melody, to truths that are no longer true and face deception uncertain and semi wary.

Dancing is good. Until you are exhausted and it’s time to go home.

Neptune in turn is confronted by this vast energy of Mars. Make your dreams real Mars yells as Neptune dances away.

2017 will be full of dancing, dreams being made real, and certainties being undone.

Horary: Job vs Career Houses

Horary: Job vs Career Houses

The way I approach horary questions: will I change my job, should I move and find a new job, should I change career is to look to the 6th or the 10th house. If someone is working as a nurse and wants to move to a different hospital, it will mostly show up in the 6th house. The day to day routine changes, but the basic job doesn’t. However if the nurse wants to become a pilot or an artist, that would show up in 10th house. Change of career = change of life at a fundamental level.

using the 10th house for a similar job – is not helpful. The 10th house is the “legacy” house – where you find fame and fortune and true calling and all that good stuff. It’s a big, axis house. Sixth house is important but it’s how you approach the day to day routines. Changing jobs as a clerk in one office to another or a shop keeper from one retail to another is very 6th house. Sixth house  is also how you serve others day to day. Tenth house is how you lead them. I guess it could be confusing for a CEO position – changing from being the CEO of an airline to CEO of a bank but it depends on the experience and depth of change. If they have been a career CEO all their lives and are comfortable serving companies in that position then it’s 6th house. Retiring as a CEO and running a small business fishing or scuba diving would strangely enough be 10th house – huge shifts, new ambition, different life..

Karen Carpenter Astrology Chart

Karen Carpenter Astrology Chart

Karen Carpenter – drummer, angelic singer, tiny, anorexic, with a longevity that many celebrities long for.

She was born in New Haven Connecticut at 11:45am  on Thursday March 2 1950.


Uranus on the Ascendent? I think she really wanted to be a girl drummer doing the “exotic beats” that she was known for playing when a very young girl. Mars conjunct South Node in the 5th house brings neediness to romance, falling on partners (Libra) to fulfill oneself. The North Node in Aries insists on standing alone, leading and innovating in a solo way. If she hadn’t passed on at the age of 32,  I think she would’ve continued to move away from “partnerships” to solo performances. But the need to have a brother, a lover, a partner would always be there – Men are Mars and it’s tough to move away from a Mars/South Node conjunction. Her solo album which her brother and producer didn’t like that much and the recording studio wasn’t happy with was canned and she went back into a partnership with Richard Carpenter. Tough for an Aries North Node that must keep competing to stand alone.

The Sun on the Midheaven cannot hide their light under a bushell. Ever. Venus in the 8th house has to express love and emotion at a real level, to crowds (Aquarius). This is not ‘pop’ music but ‘real’ emotion being produced.

The beginning of the month is intense for early Cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer and Cap). With Jupiter, Pluto, Mars (then Venus) Saturn and for a short time Uranus converging on those first few degrees, it’s like a party that quickly gets out of control. Perhaps a few nights in with a book and glass of wine if you are tired of the excitement? If not, expect a wild ride.

Uranus is in his final throes – one last pass into Pisces. Expect not to be hoodwinked this time by fast talkers and bedroom eyes. You’ve fallen for Charisma with Uncertainty once too often. If it’s career focussed, be sure to practice your “yeah yeah whatever” look – it will see you through.

Jupiter opposite Saturn will bring up a challenge. Will you expand into leadership or retract back into relationships? No answer is the right answer. But one will demand the other will beckon. It’s up to you.

Finally Saturn square Pluto brings immense change in finance and business. Expect a large company to collapse. One that looked secure and longlasting.

mercury retrograde 2010

Don’t let mercury going backwards worry you too much. Think of it as a time to tell people “no” and sit back and think. If you are asked to change course urgently, this is the time to practice your “I don’t think so” statements. It IS a great time to do research instead. Think of it as a holiday – don’t lurch into new ventures but grab a book or Google and start figuring out if it is actually the best thing for you to be doing with your time.

Full Moon February March 2010

Full Moon February March 2010

In Australia, the full moon is in the early hours (3:39am) of Monday 1st March. In the rest of the world, it’s Sunday afternoon.

i’m not 100% sure what to think about it. Hardly surprising with Neptune/Mercury conjunct just around the corner in Aquarius.

But Jupiter conjunct Sun (and of course opposing the Moon in Virgo) should bring good luck to some. Particularly those who have been trying to see something clearly in spite of the smoke being blown their way.

Venus will make herself comfortable with Uranus soon. But it won’t last long. Tears before bedtime – Venus likes cuddles and warmth and sensuality. Uranus is like a lightning strike – nothing huggable about that!

Keep an eye on Mars – if there is a volatile someone in your life, they might go off like a firecracker soon!

I wonder what this all means for the Olympics?

Astro Planets for February 2010

Astro Planets for February 2010

There are three major planetary configurations this month and the two major ones hit Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn. Saturn the planet of limitations is in a square at 4 degrees Libra – the peacemaker will have to contend with the capitalist. In other words, there’s a fight brewing at work, in your industry or around the globe that cannot be avoided. Jupiter at 4 degrees Pisces says “take a chill pill” while sextiling (positive) Pluto. Pisces has a habit of doing the washing up everytime a fight come a’knocking on the door, so make sure you stand your ground, lay out your concerns or boundaries and then gracefully step back. No point flogging it to push a point – and Pluto loves to break things down irrevocably, burning bridges and leaving no stone unturned. You don’t need to give into that:

  • February 1 Saturn Square Pluto 4 Libra/Capricorn 21 at 7:26 AM Sydney, Australia time
  • February 7 Jupiter Sextile Pluto 4 Pisces/Capricorn 21 at 3:50 AM Sydney, Australia time
  • February 17  Neptune Conjunct Chiron 26 Aquarius 14 at 3:00 PM Sydney, Australia time

Neptune conjunct Chiron will see the release of a new drug, an operation or “cure” that heals. In your life, it could be a time when you add a group or find friends that support you in a new way. If you know someone young and impressionable they may be attracted to a group that is damaged or involved in drugs (Neptune rules drugs). We choose how we want to use the energies depending on our experience.
