    Astrology on the Web Welcome to Astrology on the Web!

    It's great to see you here on our Astro Blog at Astrology on the Web. The first thing you'll need to do: add us to your favorites right now before you forget. There's no way you'll absorb everything we have to offer in just one visit... There's new material each and every week!

    Go to Top Click for more on ChristmasMerry Christmas! Christmas is a time of joy and thanksgiving, when the world celebrates the influx of divine life into the cosmic grid. In 2010, Venus enters Capricorn on Christmas Day, Dec 25, adding a lovely tone to the festivity, even though, with Mars retrograde and Mercury stationary, ready to turn retro on Boxing Day (Dec 26, the Feast of Stephen) a strange, even eerie quality attends. Perhaps we can put this down to the healing, spiritually energising conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune this year at the Solstice, which, astrologically, Christmas celebrates. It's definitely a time of feasting and gift-giving, celebrated by millions of people all over the world. Christmas is the official commemoration of the birth in Israel some two thousand years ago of Jesus Christ, the divine child – but it is a general time of celebration for people all over the world, of all cultures and faiths. It has been so since prehistoric times, when all cultures celebrated the birth of the Sun as it emerged from the depths of the Solstice. Rob Tillett explains the meaning of this festival and puts it into an astrological context. Read more on Christmas.

    Go to Top This site is certified 66% EVIL by the Gematriculator Mwahahahaha... We've been Gematriculated! It's nearly Christmas, so we thought we'd survived intact, but now that we have been Gematriculated... I'm not so sure. Get this: "The Gematriculator is a service that uses the infallible methods of Gematria (developed by Dr. Ivan Panin in 1890) to determine how good or evil a web site or a text passage is. Basically, Gematria is searching for different patterns through the text, such as the amount of words beginning with a vowel. If the amount of these matches is divisible by a certain number, such as 7 (which is said to be God's number), there is an incontestable argument that the Spirit of God is ever present in the text. Experts consider the mathematical patterns in the text of the Holy Bible as God's watermark of authenticity. Thus, the Gematriculator provides only results that are absolutely correct." (though how long since the Bible was written using the Finnish alphabet is a moot point). Gosh. We've been Gematriculated. Interestingly enough, it's a little-known fact that the Bible and nearly all ancient scriptures can also be understood numerically and symbolically, rather than literally. The qabbalistical art of Gematria was used by the authors to encode deep layers of meaning into a great deal of otherwise incomprehensible or strangely unlikely events contained in scripture.

    Go to Top More on Capricorn, the Sea-Goat Here Comes the Sun King! The solstice is upon us, which is marked by the entry of the Sun into the sign of Capricorn, the sign of worldly achievement, spiritual birth and serious ambition. Conservative Capricorn is the tenth sign of the tropical zodiac. As we celebrate the ingress into Capricorn, we are focused on exploring the deep and fascinating world of astrology and relationships. Capricorn, the Sea-Goat, our featured Sign of the month has a cautious, yet determined personality, with a sense of the rightness and order of things which can be both frustrating and reassuring. Capricornian people, while both energetic and ambitious (especially in later life), have a strong sense of loyalty and dedication. Their passions are slow to ignite, but once burning, the blaze can light up the world! Capricorns seek stable long-term relationships, can be jealous and possessive, but give deeply of themselves to their loved ones.

    Go to Top  King CanuteClimate Conference Debacle. The massive UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen has come to an inglorious end, with member states agreeing to have more meetings, but to do nothing much about the supposed cause of the climate change, anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 emissions. Except agree that the ceiling for "global warming" should be capped at 2°C and to distribute $30 billion over the next 3 years to poorer countries—a lot less than the cost, say, of the war. They have a non-binding "pact". Oooh. It's a pity they did not consult an expert astrologer to elect their conference timing, because it was not good from the point of view of progress. Moon opposing Neptune almost to the minute suggests delusions on the part of the public, mainly to do with the cost. Moon opposed Jupiter, suggesting that leaders and their subjects would not be able to produce mutually satisfactory outcomes. There are many more astrological problems, including Mars turning retrograde in Leo during the event, generating backtracking and inability to get things done. Mind you, the Moon/Jupiter opposition suggests opulence and extravagance in other ways too, so no doubt the food was good, as the limousines and private jets proliferated. Does our hubris know no bounds? Passing laws to stop the Sun heating us (and the rest of the solar system) up? Let's look at history. Last time we tried to pass laws against the progress of nature was in 1016 (during the Mediæval Warm Period, LOL), when King Canute ordered the tides to halt. His remark—when they just kept on coming—is worthy of note: "Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings. For there is none worthy of the name but God, whom heaven, earth and sea obey".

    Go to Top  Isis and Calendar BeastNew Comments System. Well, as you can see, we have upgraded the Haloscan comments system to Echo (and paid for the privilege, I might add!). And a very geeky business it was too. But it's cool, because you can put in your photo and all that social networking kind of stuff. So far, alas, we have not been able to get our "Recent Comments" link to function properly, but I suppose it's a matter of time, given that Mars turns retro today and Mercury does the cosmic pirouette on the 26th of December. Anyway, must get back to writing the Annual Forecasts—and the dailies. Still, I don't suppose anyone is particularly inconvenienced...

Last year (2009), both Neil and I were ill and unable to do the work, so we linked to forecasts from our sister-site, TruthStar. This year our Indian wizard, Pt Dakshinamoorthi, is unable to write them—and they were not very "Western" anyway. However I have pulled my act together this year, and will be placing them on line one-by-one as they are finished (Pisces is already on line. Yay! No more complaints about being last in line...). Neil rang me yesterday and offered to write some of them, too, so here we are having a Group Effort to keep you up with your futures. Check out our Annual Forecasts for 2010.

    Go to Top MercuryMercury Retrograde. The cosmic pressure is building towards a cosmogasm this Christmas, with both Mars and Merc turning tail in quick succession, followed by a lunar eclipse at the Full Moon in Cancer on New Year's Eve! Cor. This year there are four Merc Retro phases in place of the usual three and we are now heading for the final. At 02:39 UT (Universal Time), on Saturday, December 26th, 2009, Mercury the wise communicator turns retrograde at 21°46' Capricorn, in the sign of the Sea-Goat, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! The retro period begins some days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until Jan. 15, 2010, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac. Everything finally straightens out on February 4, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. This period brings travel snafus and missed appointments of all kinds. Documents can go astray. Be sure to carry a diary and refer to it often. Check out Mercury Retrograde.

    Go to Top MarsThe Warrior Turns...! On December 20th, 2009, Mars, the mighty Warrior, reaches his retrograde station at 19°42' Leo, in preparation for a period of retrograde motion in Leo that will last until March 10th, 2010. The first beginnings of the effect take place from October 17, as Mars begins to slow, so prepare for issues to cloud in the Mars Shadow, especially if you have strong Fixed Sign placements in your chart. The Fixed Signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Scorpio is likely to be particularly hard hit, as Mars is the traditional planetary ruler of Scorpio. Mars fires your emotions and energizes your passions, but also powers your mental endeavours and communicative skills. Mars describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter. Mars endows powerful energy and an indomitable will to succeed, but can mean accidents, injuries, anger, rage, warfare or other forms of violence! Check out Mars Retrograde.

    Go to Top Marguerite ManningMercury Retrograde: Above the Hype and Beyond the Spin. The Mercury Retrograde phase is a generally disorganised period that comes into play three or four times every year. Talented astrologer Marguerite Manning, author of Cosmic Karma: Understanding Your Contract With The Universe, focuses on our relationships at a karmic level and tells us that what happens to us is a part of our contract with the universe. Well, ain't that the truth! In this new article, Marguerite argues that the Mercury retrograde period is a time for discovering hidden information, not just a phase of annoying inconveniences. So how do we move past the “run for cover” rhetoric of Mercury retrograde and make it work for us? By fighting fire with astrological fire and changing our perspective on what this influence does to us. Check out Mercury Retrograde: Above the Hype and Beyond the Spin!

    Click for more on the Jupiter RemediesGo to Top Protect, Purify & Prosper! Although we feature the tropical zodiac on this site, as do most Western astrologers, millions of people live by the sidereal zodiac, especially in India. On December 19, 2009, Jupiter (Brihaspati), the mighty lord of the planetary powers, moves into sidereal Aquarius (Kumbha Rasi) and in the middle of May 2010 will enter sidereal Pisces (Meena Rasi). Jupiter governs finances and prosperity, and can help with children. Those with Moon in Taurus (Rishaba), Cancer (Kataka), Virgo (Kanya), Scorpio (Vrischika), Sagittarius (Dhanur), and Aquarius (Kumbha) need protection; so through our sister site Truthstar.com, we have organised powerful spiritual remedies for purification, Puja (worship) and Homam (fire rituals). Performed in India by our skilled Vedic astrologer-priests and recorded on video, they can be ordered at a small cost. Protect, purify and prosper, through our Sidereal Jupiter Transit Remedies.

    Click for more on the Lunar EclipseGo to Top Partial Eclipse of the Moon on New Years' Eve! The eclipse of the Moon, when the light of the Moon mysteriously darkens at the luminous height of a Full Moon, has traditionally been viewed as a bad omen. It can awaken distinctly irrational responses. The fourth eclipse of the year will be a minor one, but since the Moon will be in emotional Cancer on New Year's Eve, Dec 31, it might be a bit teary. All the same, I'd say hardly anyone will be sad to see the last of 2009! Cor, what a year! Full of nasties of all varieties, IMHO. Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn, and Mars is also retrograde in Leo, so issues and attractions from the past will demand to be dealt with under this eclipse. Since the Moon governs domestic matters, the public and the emotional personality, rather than leadership, it will have a more personal effect than the solar eclipse on Jan 15, which will play a more outward, even political, role. Read more on the Lunar Eclipse.

    Winter Solstice, NewgrangeGo to Top The Solstice – Time of Cosmic Rebirth. The word "Solstice" derives from the Latin Sol + systere, meaning "Sun" + "standing still". At the December Solstice, the Sun halts over the Tropic of Capricorn (23°S26') for some three days at the end of his journey south before recommencing his life-giving journey north. This, the longest night of the year (or shortest in the Southern Hemisphere), happens in 2009 on the eve of the 22nd of December (Dec. 21), for the measurement of days once began from sunset, rather than midnight. People across the world, in every culture, have assigned a great deal of meaning to this journey of the Sun; a broad spectrum of mythological, religious and social customs have accumulated around it. At the time of the solstice (to be exact, just as the solstice ended), people celebrated the birth of the Sun on December 25, now most widely celebrated as Christmas Day. The solsticial period lasts some three days, so when the Sun begins to rise earlier again, it has traditionally been cause for jubilation since prehistoric times. More on The Solstice.

    Mother Earth Father Sky, by Susan Seddon-BouletGo to Top Have a Cool Yule! December 21 marks the celebration of the ancient festival of Yule at the Solstice. Yule is the pagan celebration of the birth of the Sun and the turning of the Wheel of the Year. The birth of the Sun has been celebrated since time immemorial on or around the solstice, which is why the birth of Jesus is celebrated at this time (December 25). Ancient Rome recognised it in the day of the birth of the Invincible Sun, so the choice of this day for Christmas was a handy christianization of the established festival of Mithras, the Sun God and a number of other Solar Heroes. That is why John Calvin and other leaders of the Reformation abhorred it, why the Puritans refused to acknowledge it, much less celebrate it (to them, no day of the year could be more holy than the Sabbath), and why it was even made illegal in Boston! As a matter of fact, Hannah, writing from Finland, has just informed us in our blog comments that Christmas in Finnish is Joulu! Read more on the ancient festival of Yule, the Wheel of the Year.

    Go to Top Sagittarius, the Archer Sagittarius, the Archer! Lively Sagittarius, the sign of wide-ranging travel (both physical and mental), matters of the higher mind and having a good time, is the ninth sign of the tropical zodiac. As the Sun enters the sign of the Archer on Nov 22, this makes Sagittarius our featured Sign of the month! Sagittarians have a dynamic personality, with a sense of personal freedom which can be both stimulating and challenging. Sagittarian people have a lively interest in exploring the distant reaches of the world, both innner and outer. They love to take chances and to travel, making them the great gamblers of the zodiac. Sagittarians, also famed as the high priests of the zodiac, will rise to any challenge, especially in the area of romance. The noble emblem for Sagittarius is the Archer, armed with the arrow of truth. Free and honest in their approach, they expect others to be likewise. The Sagittarian arrow shoots for the stars, holding the blazing light of truth in an arc that illuminates the world. Admirers should remember that their honesty can on occasions be brutally frank, especially when extolling the virtues of their actions, or recounting one of their more dubious exploits.

    Asperital Owl
    Go to Top Asperitus Returns! Those of you who have been following the outlandish career of Asperitus, Master of Complaint, Lord of the Laggardly and Marionette of the Maudlin Muse, had no doubt given him up for dead (unsurprisingly, as he does dwell in heaven, when he is not inhabiting a dustbin in a mountainous retreat, or barricading himself in a disused lavatory in Nhill). Due to a grave disdain for the flimflam and flummeries of the mortal world, the old boy has in recent months failed to deliver on time, or indeed at all. In fact he is still far from 100%, but the ill aspects have stirred his soul, and missive by owl advises that he has revived some of his flagging strength. As though from out of nowhere, Asperitus, Oracle of Bitter Truth, has undertaken to review the maudlin futures of sublunary souls as they totter along this vale of tears. Enough of that. Let us prepare for the Cosmic Cacophonies of 2010... Read more on The Trials and Tribulations of 2010

    God of War by InertiaKGo to Top Mars, our astrological "Why" chromosome. Astrologically speaking, do you know what makes you tick? I mean really, when it comes to the universal energies being reflected in your natal chart (or as I like to refer to them, the individual cosmic clauses in your very own “contract with the universe”) do you know what single birth energy, all by itself, can get you to stand up and be counted all by yourself? Marguerite Manning argues that the position of Mars is critical because it is the driving force that empowers and ignites our lives. Mars will always dictate the manner in which we characteristically display courage, express anger and exhibit passion. It also predicts just how we are most likely to annoy others, ignite tempers and push a few provocative buttons along the willful way. Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio and Aries, will be in Leo for several months ahead, turning retrograde on Dec 20. Read more on Mars, our astrological "why" chromosome.

    Go to Top Scorpio Solar Festival. The Full Moon for Scorpio (the full moon at Taurus 10º30') occurs on the 2nd of November 2009 at 19:16 UT and 2:16 PM EST in the US. This is 6:16 AM AEST, (Sydney time) on Nov.3. Malvin says that Scorpios cop a bad rap in astrological circles and they are constantly looked at askance for their brooding nature and supposed 'antics', to use a polite term. In fact, most of the Scorpios I know are down-to-earth and fun-loving, but there is the sting in the tail if you cross them. Check out the Scorpio Solar Festival.

    Go to Top Libra Solar Festival. Malvin Artley, our regular esoteric commentator examines the subtle meaning of the Full Moons in Aries and Taurus for 2009 in a new, if somewhat delayed pair of articles. Due to commitments and other factors he was unable to write the Libra article before the event this year, and because he was on retreat for the better part of October, he was late sending the Scorpio article, so we have received both letters together. These are Libra's Full Moon and Scorpio's Full Moon, as the Moon is full in the sign opposing the Sun. The full moon of Libra (the full moon at Aries 11º10') occurs on the 4th of October 2009 at 06:11 UT and 1:11 AM EST in the US. This is 5:11 PM AEST, (Sydney time). The full moon of Scorpio (the full moon at Taurus 10º30') occurs on the 2nd of November 2009 at 19:16 UT and 2:16 PM EST in the US. This is 6:16 AM AEST, (Sydney time) on Nov.3. It's pretty profound stuff. We have set the Libra article first, so check out the Libra Solar Festival, and now the Scorpio Festival is also on line.

    Go to Top Happy Halloween! Our light-hearted modern festivity on Oct. 31 of ghosts and ghoulies, frights and feast, trick or treat, has much more serious (and scary!) origins in the ancient Celtic Feast of the Dead. This festival has survived, due to its connection with the archetypal energies that it evokes and due to its more recent connection with the Christian festival of All Souls, which the Church has instituted as a substitute for this pagan celebration. Given that Mars is slowing towards a rare retro phase and Saturn is changing sign to Libra, more gremlins than usual might be on the warpath! Check out Halloween.

    Go to Top Moon Wobble's Last Blast. Did you hear about the massive asteroid explosion over the coastal town of Bone, in Sulawesi, Indonesia? No, I thought not. It occurred on Oct 8 with the force of 2–3 times the Hiroshima atom bomb – just as the moonwobble began its dance. Imagine the media fandango if this happened over New York, London, or Paris! Or even populated places closer like Jakarta, KL, or Bangkok. Hmmm. The failure of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridge on Oct 30 scared commuters as 5000 pounds of iron fell on the traffic, and a mag. 6.8 quake hit Amami Oshima off the Japanese south coast. Well in the meantime, we have restored our PHP forecast pages at last, but now we find that our PHP contact forms have failed. So if you have been trying to contact us, or subscribe, please forgive the lack of response. We hope to have them back on air this weekend. In the meantime, look up the news on Moon Wobble.

    Go to Top Neptune Turns Direct. On November 4, 2009, Neptune in Aquarius turns stationary direct after months of retrograde motion through the zodiac. This releases some cosmic pressure, though Neptune remains effectively stationary till the end of the month, conjunct the fortunate fixed star, Sadalsuud. Much of the confusion, delusion and deception that has dogged the world in recent months will begin to be clarified. The principle of Neptune is the dissolution of boundaries, as such it represents any energy or any person or any state of mind which does this. High Neptunian states of mind include: receptivity, inspiration, spirituality. People operating at this level will display: sympathetic understanding, charity, and self-sacrifice. The lowest include: impressionability, delusion, illusion. People operating at this level will display: confusion, deception, and paranoia. Neptunian events are usually chaotic in nature and often bring misery, grief, and bereavement in their wake. This mighty force usually operates beneath the surface, but can be brought into the forefront of consciousness when affected by significant transits from the visible planets – as it has been recently in the oil crisis and the floods, hurricanes and storms that have so grievously affected certain parts of the world. More from a previously published article by Ian Thurnwald on Neptune in Aquarius.

    Go to Top Saturn Enters Libra. Saturn is one of the most powerful astrological forces in our solar system. The stern Lord of Karma sets the tone of our lives over extended periods of time, as he takes two and a half years to transit one sign of the zodiac. The last 2½ years have seen Saturn ploughing through Virgo, bringing the joys of the great financial crisis and a general sense of restriction. Those born in the periods when Saturn occupied Virgo (1919–1921; 1948–1951; 1977-1980) have been experiencing the Saturn Return, a difficult and often awkward phase, when issues from the past have demanded resolution. On October 29, 2009, this massive force changes signs to Libra, the sign of his exaltation, where he will remain until April 7, 2010, when he slips back in retro mode to revisit Virgo till July 21. Then (leaving Virgo at last for 29 years!) he shifts back to Libra, remaining on the Scales until October 2012. This will awaken a great change in the world; one which hopefully will see big improvements in the year ahead, especially once Jupiter enters Pisces in January 2010. Saturn will therefore be concentrating the attention of those with Saturn, Sun or Moon in Libra (and in the other Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer and Capricorn) in a quite substantial way over the months ahead! Saturn previously occupied Libra in the years Oct.1921–Sep.1924; Aug.1951–Oct.1953; and Sep.1980–Nov.1982, so folks born in those periods are now entering their own Saturn Returns. My commiserations. We will be presenting an in-depth analysis of the trends in the near future, but the general malaise has prevented prompt action on that front as yet. In the meantime, check out Saturn.

Exactly opposite Beltane on the wheel of the year, Halloween is Beltane’s dark twin. A night of glowing jack-o’-lanterns, bobbing for apples, tricks or treats, and dressing in costume. A night of ghost stories and séances, tarot card readings and scrying with mirrors. A night of power, when the veil that separates our world from the Otherworld is at its thinnest. Mike Nicholls explains that All Hallows' Eve is the eve of All Hallows’ Day (November 1). And for once, even popular tradition remembers that the eve is more important than the day itself, the traditional celebration focusing on October 31, beginning at sundown. More on All Hallows' Eve.

    Go to Top Why so many Natural Disasters...? The news has been splattered with horrific images this week from the massive earthquakes in Samoa and Sumatra, not to mention other regions of the so-called "Ring of Fire". Scientists say that an undersea volcano is erupting, but we can say that we are now undergoing a powerful Moon Wobble phase, triggering such cataclysmic events. I have now updated the article for 2009, listing disasters associated with the Moon Wobble over the past two years. Be warned! There are more to come this month, as the peak approaches on Oct 18, then at the end of the month as Saturn enters Libra. [Note that now (Oct 5) a massive monsoon flood has occurred in India, one of many upcoming catastrophes foreshadowed by the Moon Wobble.] Check out The Moon Wobble.

    Go to Top Diwali, Indian Festival of Lights The best-known of the Hindu festivals, Diwali is celebrated throughout India at the New Moon on the fifteenth day of the auspicious month Kartika (october/november), as well as in Indian communities throughout the world. Diwali, from the sanskrit: deepãvali meaning "a garland of lamps", is an accurate description for this remarkable Indian festival of lights. The celebration of Diwali, a moveable feast, occurs this year on October 17, 2009 in the Western, Gregorian Calendar. Read more on Diwali.

    Go to Top Mercury Turns Direct!. Mercury has been retrograde since Sep 7, but he stations at 21° 38' Virgo on Sep. 29, before moving forward and then scurrying back into Libra on Oct. 10th. The station is a good time to make decisions and plans for the future, but we do need to bear in mind that even though Merc is turning direct again, the "Mercury Shadow" period remains active until Oct 18. Experience shows that the effects of the retro period are still marked during the shadow phase. Some of the most characteristic annoyances often occur just after Mercury makes the direct station, while he is crawling forward before picking up speed. Check out Mercury Retrograde.

    Go to Top Navratna, the Nine Gems. At the moment the world is undergoing a very auspicious period, according to Sri Dattatreya Siva Baba and our friends at AstroVed. This is because a vast amount of positive cosmic energy is being poured into the world from the goddesses due to the phase known in India as Navratri, the Nine Nights (this year between Sep 19 & Sep 27), as outlined on our sister site, Truthstar.com. Since this is a good period related to Nines, I thought that you might like to read about the Nine Gems, which are most potent for astrological remedies! We, as human beings, receive vital rays – subtle cosmic radiation from planets that influence our attitudes, behaviour, and environment. This planetary radiation has a definite impact on our ever-changing psychological dispositions. Stones and gems, coming into direct contact with the skin, exercise an electromagnetic influence over our cells. This article by our own Vedic astrologer, Uma Shankar Shukla, explores the ways in which our lives can be affected by the subtle power of stones. Check out Navratna, the Nine Gems.

    Go to Top Astrology, the Sacred Art. The priest, the soldier and the prostitute are thought to be the members of the three oldest professions in the world. However popular this myth may be, it is incorrect. There is a fourth 'oldest' profession, one that may in fact be older than the ancient institutions of church, army and brothel. This fourth profession is that of the astrologer! Astrology is a sacred art – and it is a sacred science. In this challenging article, Neil Giles argues that its disciplined study reveals the right path by revealing the turnings of the wheel of life. To act as the Heavens reveal is to take right action, acknowledging the sacred in each moment. Check out Astrology, the Sacred Art.

    Libra, weighing things up! Go to Top Artistry and Charm! Delightful Libra, the sign of harmony, balance, justice and human relationships is the seventh sign of the tropical zodiac. Mercury turned retro in Libra on Sep 8, but has since moved back to Virgo and won't return there till Oct 10. Meanwhile we celebrate the Equinox, marking the ingress of the Sun into Libra, the cardinal Air sign. The key to Libra lies in finding the middle path, the harmonious balancing of the extremes. Our featured Sign of the month is a sign of social charm, artistic appreciation and fashion sense, but one whose innate sense of fairness and balance often leads to a frustratingly long time to make those crucial decisions! The focal point of elegance and chic in the zodiac, Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and sensual delight. Librans seek relationship with an avid fascination. Libra lives for love — and style! So much in love with love, Librans sometimes fail to notice how many admirers they are holding on a string...
    Charming Libra loves exploring every facet of relationship, being always on display and always on the lookout for Mr/Ms Right (even if already involved, love-loving Libra is ready to jump ship should something a little brighter appear on the horizon). Read about Libra and all the other signs, right here on our website: click here.

    Go to Top Mercury Retrogrades Back to Virgo. Mercury has been doing the backstairs tango in Libra since Sep 7, but now he has stumbled back into Virgo, the sign of his exaltation. Intellectual distractions and mixups over important details under the New Moon are in the wind. This lunation is by and large fortunate, but is notably conjunct Benetnash, ominously named Alkaid in Arabic, which is associated with death and mourning, war and natural catastrophes. Orators will express their ideas fluently, which should inspire bold plans for the future, but we should remain skeptical, as the great strength of Virgo is analysis and discrimination. We must all adopt a sense of personal responsibility that can (and will) move us into new life, new possibilities, new realities. Look for alternatives that are practical and to the point. Mercury turns direct again at 21° 38' Virgo on Sep. 29, returning to Libra on Oct. 10th. Check out Mercury Retrograde.

    Go to Top How Does Astrology Work? In this newly updated part of our What Is Astrology series, Rob Tillett writes that our bodies react to the world in ways which are still barely understood. He says we constantly interact with our environment on many levels, from the sub-atomic to the metaphysical. These physical, mental, emotional, even spiritual, levels of interaction vary in depth and intensity according to our character and training. Our world is really much more like a marvellous mind than a mere machine! Check out How Does Astrology Work?.

    Go to Top Glossary Updates. It's Virgo time, so I have been spending time updating and improving our Astrology Glossary lately. This is a sort of a cross between a dictionary and an encyclopædia, one which concentrates on the weird and wonderful terminology of astrology and other arcane fields, such as alchemy and the occult. It sets out to explain the meanings of these words, in a useful, simple way – though some entries can be relatively lengthy if I have not yet had time to write a full article on the subject. My fixation on the glossary is no doubt a consequence of my progressed Sun having moved into detail-oriented Virgo and forming the conjunction with my natal Saturn at more or less the same time as I have been experiencing the joys of my Saturn Return, which is nearly over, thank heavens! Virgo is known for concentrating on the nitty gritty details, sometimes at the expense of the Bigger Picture (a famous interest of Leo, the previous sign), but I hope this is a valuable addition to our site. Check out our Glossary of Astrological Terms.
