VENUS is LUMINOUS in CANCER

Love goddess Venus into Cancer today, and suddenly we tune into our instinctive female energy a little bit more... Venus in Gemini recently has been a bit of fun, game-on flirty repartee in love and dextrous multi-tasking in our creative endeavours which is fun and all. But it might be nice to bring our emotional, instinctual intelligence back to the fore, and navigate some lovely, sensitive, nurturing awareness for a while, now that Venus is shining in her dreamy lunar aspect... Venus rules love, and in Cancer we remember that we really care. And I don't mean the intense, high-stakes passion of, say, Scorpio, I mean that we aren't scared to own our emotional investment in whatever relations

AUGUST POWER

Yes it's Leo season and the August scopes are up here to guide us, as we strut through this fabulous month... First of all it's also Eclipse season! We have an Aquarius partial Lunar Eclipse on the 8th, featuring lucky Jupiter and an awesome Mars/Destiny Point directive to fire up and seize the day -the Destiny Point is our soul path/future calling us and Mars is the bravado, guts and genuine effort required to make it happen -get it? It's one of those 'if not now when?' moments Then we have a Full Solar Eclipse on the 22nd, also with the Mars/Destiny Point magic and sparky Uranus to liberate our mind and Saturn/Lilith to ground any actions in authentic integrity, spunk and pragmatic nous. S

CANCER HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

CANCER/CANCER RISING Mars and the Destiny Point in your income sector all month is big –and it’s about more than just money. I mean yes, you do score some fab insights about the most exciting, long-term promising opportunities to earn/hustle some good coin on your own terms this month, which is great. But it’s more about the personal freedom of doing things in your own inimitable way, sticking to your personal values/integrity and feeling like the captain of your own destiny (not to be underestimated) that really turns you on here… Because Saturn/Lilith in your work sector all month is about grappling with the frustrating restrictions of any tedious professional commitments vs how rewarding

GEMINI HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING So the pertinent question for August might be; are you ready to transform the Gemini love life or lock down and seek to maintain the status quo? I know the answer is obvious, but here’s why: Saturn in your love sector is all about ground rules and commitment issues, which is ultimately all about self-protection. It could be you or your lover who feels the need to either define things so rigidly in order to guarantee the long term commitment or hold back from to much vulnerability in order to maintain some kind of emotional comfort zone? Or perhaps there’s a deeply abiding, mutual devotion happening naturally-in which case great, and you’re loving it! Or if single perhaps

TAURUS HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

TAURUS/TAURUS RISING The Full Moon (partial Eclipse) in your biz sector of the 8th lined up with lucky Jupiter in your income sector and transformative Pluto in your vision sector is a pretty fab start to the month! You pull out the existing life/work plan, rework it with fresh eyes and make a bold, expansive plan for maximum personal and financial freedom. Yes August looks like fun, especially if you’re ready to embrace big picture possibilities. Taurus is not traditionally noted for adventurous risk-taking –having to be pried from the old comfort zone kicking and screaming apparently; but I have found that when you do decide to seize some new experience you do it wholeheartedly and with th

ARIES HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

ARIES/ARIES RISING Mars, your ruling planet in your play/creative sector all month and activated by Eclipse season is such a turn on for you right now, on so many levels: Firstly it’s fun! It’s time to remember the value of play, for no other reason than it’s good for the soul. Time to toss the ball with the kids/laughter and good times with your tribe/create or get arty for the pure joy of self-expression/take some time out for easy, replenishing recreation. And also time to back your own talent. Whatever you’re good at, you work it that much harder this month; for some energising creative confidence and getting to the point where you believe in your product/brand/unique skill enough to get

PISCES HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

PISCES/PISCES RISING The Full Moon Eclipse of the 8th in your soul sector is about tuning into your most shamanic, creative, magical inspiration (which luckily, comes naturally to a spooky little mystic like yourself of course) -and specifically some cracker action in your work sector to channel all this into. Mars is a fierce work/self improvement ethic, and you’re looking for something useful to do with it and the Destiny Point to open up some serious opportunities for long-term success if you do so. Focus, get a plan, bang away at it with some proper zeal and you’ll feel like a million bucks; it’s one of those months when working extra hard is more energising than lazing around conserving

AQUARIUS HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING The Eclipse of the 8th is an Aquarius Full Moon, and a brilliant opportunity to tune into your own emotional depth/get in touch with your real feelings and instincts right now, for some snazzy emotional congruence and confidence to power you through the month. I mean you can be seen as bit of an emotional iceberg sometimes-as you tend to stick to principled analysis rather then indulge passionate whims if you think they might be flimsy, and peeps sometimes mistake your solid integrity for not actually caring. Not true of course, you care deeply but do tie yourself up in knots trying so hard to get it right sometimes? So this Moon is great for letting it out, shaking

CAPRICORN HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING The Partial Eclipse of the 8th is a cracker Full Moon across your income/cash and intimacy sectors, to get you tuned into what’s really going on and emotionally congruent/empowered for the rest of the month: You get that clear self awareness is the key to instinctively identify and unlock all those core competencies/skills of yours that you’ve spent so long getting right. Because you’ve got to really believe in what you do, the better to go hustle some decent coin for doing it, yes? Also because Mars and the Destiny Point on this Moon, in your shared resources/cash sector is a cracker for aggressively teasing out (is there such a thing?) any funds you need to build

SAGITTARIUS HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING It’s all about Lilith approaching Saturn in your sign right now, exact Aug 21 -29 but active all month –and this has been building for a while so you’re ready to fully embrace it by now… Lilith is that bitching, rebellious impatience with bourgeois expectations and prescriptive authoritarian shizz -which is your natural state, to be honest and only aggravated since Lilith hit your sign from last February. Your immediate reaction to anyone telling you what to do is basically fuq you; and you’re loving the sovereign empowerment/wildling thrills that claiming this basic attitude has been giving you all year. But of course, as Bob Dylan said “to live outside the la

SCORPIO HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING The Partial Eclipse of the 8th is classic work/life balance issues coming up. First and foremost, with the Full Moon in your home sector) you make sure that your domestic/family scenario is actually supportive, nurturing and emotionally congruent –because the more you get that right the more you have a platform from which to leap into the magnificent professional energy of mid month. I mean with Mars (fierce ambition and motivation), the Sun (clear self-expression) and the Destiny Point (life changing, future oriented opportunities to align with your soul path, no less) all lined up in your biz/fame/public life sector –how could you not be thrilled about your career p

LIBRA HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

LIBRA/LIBRA RISING The month begins with your ruling planet, Venus into your fame/biz sector so it could be a time to strut your stuff in the world! Professional glamour, dressing to impress, flirting-I mean charming up a storm for optimum attention and of course, most importantly flaunting your most brilliant, innate talent in the world is the way to get ahead this month for sure… Especially with the Full Moon Eclipse of the 8th in your talent/self expression sector. This is an extraordinary opportunity to get in touch with whatever you’re innately good at, especially if it’s something you’ve been putting the hard yards in/banging away at for ages- and pulling it together/backing yourself

VIRGO HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

VIRGO/VIRGO RISING Your ruler, Mercury, retrograde in your sign and opposite slippery Neptune in your partnership sector from the 14th? Watch out, mid month could be a tricksy hotbed of bonkers communication and relational dynamics to do your clever, pretty little head in! Surreal misunderstandings, conversations veering off in strange directions, random changes of plan to keep you on your toes etc could mess with your groove a bit. But this could also be a great opportunity to ditch any control-freaky micro management (you can’t) and tune into a more intuitive, flowing, adaptable way of doing things. And yes this includes love. It feels like you’re either reading your lover’s mind/on the sc

LEO HOROSCOPE for AUGUST 2017

LEO/LEO RISING The month begins with Venus into your secret soul-sector, so you may initially feel like you’re heading into a more introverted month, sans too much love action? Well yes to an extent it’s about healthy relationship with self first; and subsequently any romance does have to be pretty soul-matey/spiritually authentic to really turn you on. But mainly it’s all about the the Full Moon Eclipse of the 8th in your love sector-this is a doozy: First of all it harnesses all the moxy of Mars in Leo (from now until early September), so let’s talk about that. You’re walking around in full, brazen spunk like a boss –you love this of course! Your personal confidence is firmly set to intern

MARS powered LEO NEW MOON-THIS should get us MOVING!

Leo New Moon coming up, 7.46pm July 23rd, AEST. It's Leo season for sure, and a blazing good time coming up if we're ready! New Moons are always a rising up of fresh emotional clarity and in Leo we get in touch with our warmest, most authentic, courageous and passionate feelings... it's a delicious time to really feel a beautiful connection with ourselves and one another... Image: the wonderful Gregory Colbert And with Mars exactly on top of this Moon to fire it up; there's pretty much no stopping us now: Mars in Leo for the next 6 weeks (more here on this) is a nice blast of life affirming authentic self expression, hot-blooded living and we do it with nothing less than brazen, magnificent

MARS in LEO RAWR

Image: Bernheimer photography Mars, the sexy warrior god rules personal confidence, sexual conquest, how we make things happen, assert ourselves and tap into our most primal energy source; and in Leo we do it with nothing less than brazen, magnificent spunk and fearless self assurance. It's the season to be driven by the power of self belief first and foremost without waiting for too much external approval, but of course if we happen to get noticed strutting our stuff then that's great too because, you know, we're all shameless show ponies now and don't mind the spotlight either! So Mars into Leo from July 20th-September 4th is a nice blast of life affirming authentic self expression, hot-bl

GOAT MOON

Full Moon in Capricorn, exact 2.06pm July 9th, AEST. Full Moons are always a coming to terms with whatever's driving us emotionally, and in Capricorn it's ambitious, gutsy determination to scale the heights of personal excellence! Which is no doubt ramped up by Capricorn's ruler, Saturn in sync with bitch Lilith (even stronger by August), where we have such a solid sense of taking personal responsibility for our own achievements -and doing it on our own, uncompromising terms -which is always motivating to bang away at whatever ambitions/goals we value that much harder. And then Jupiter in Libra (thank goodness) adds a nice, balanced perspective. We push ourselves, but not at the expense of e

VENUS SPARKLES in GEMINI

Venus has just shimmied into Gemini, adding a lovely, airy lighter perspective to the steamy/intense/grappling with our passions frisson of Mars/Pluto and Saturn in Sag. So from now until the end of July we get to explore our more playful side. Venus rules love, relationships, beauty and art, and in Gemini we do it with a lighter, more mutable, cerebral touch. We're not taking things literally right now; we're playing around with future possibilities and delighting in the multi-faceted nature of personal expression and personal interaction. So let's talk about the Gemini take on love. On one hand the Gemini vibe is a notoriously tricky one. It's all about complex scenarios where we keep-em-g

MARS + PLUTO =PASSION

The warrior god, Mars is quite active right now, triggering the lucrative, rut busting Pluto-Jupiter square that's building for August (more on that later) and right now (exact July 3rd) opposing power tripper Pluto! This a fully tetchy, libidinous, spoiling for a scrap, cruising for a bruising, testosterone driven, power-trippy, passionate, primal, growlingly, limbic fight or fuq/force of nature dynamic for sure... And with so much raw power to be harnessed here -what are we going to do with it? It's really worth a bit of deliberate focus about where we direct our energy right now. Even more than most astro influences the question really is whether we use this energy for good or evil? We ca
