The terrestrial planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth...

I will be speaking at the Star Camp – Astrologers in the Outback conference organised by the CIA Cosmic Intelligence Agency and then travelling around the great outback so you are getting a bumper issue of September and October.


Aries 21 March – 19 April


Confusion will reign supreme in any decisions with your health or with anybody you are paying to do any sort of work. You will be the last to know what’s happening.  To avoid issues, ask lots of questions and talk to as many people as possible for their opinion. In fact, you will be taking to lots of people, and reconnecting with others. Trust what they say.   


With the Full moon in your sign and the finance zones activated, it suggests that your emotions will be affected by everything to do with money and what you value. But lady luck is smiling upon you so please stop worrying as you have plenty and will manage.  There may be worries over young people/children and how their values are different to yours. A partner may find it difficult to say what they think.


Taurus 20 April – 20 May


A social time finishes and a time of responsibility starts.  Perhaps the party is over. If you have been a little too indulgent then by golly, you will get a chance to pay for it. Not with money, but with something more valuable; your time and energy.  Even your health will be in the spotlight. Just beware that you don’t take your annoyances out on those at home.


You have Jupiter the god of expansion coming into your sign, so you want something bigger and better. But is seems like the world does not yet share your ideas. Family and partners, even business ones, will see problems where you see possibilities. Venus, the goddess of love, enters your relationship zone promising new love and friendship possibilities. And she also helps you gradually gain support from the special people in your life.  


Gemini 21 May – 21 June


Your work life is at odds with what you want to be doing. Even if you don’t work, then it is the role in life you are known for. Is this role no longer real for you? Are you being true to yourself? Strong emotions will pass without having to change anything, but is this right? The person you will most likely argue with is you! Stop it and, “feel the fear; but do it anyway”


Communication and responsibility are the main themes for you this month. Sometimes you may feel like you are prevented from speaking or connecting with others. This only means that it’s time to slow down and take one step at a time.  Hurried words (or text) will only get you into trouble. You may even take on more duties than you really want to.  Think slowly and consider carefully before you agree.


Cancer 23 June – 22 July


You will need to make decisions, and they may be around travel or study plans. After initial indecision or worries, there will be no fuss and bother.  Other than the fact that you are seeking to know something more about life, and why should that be scary? Be prepared that a part of you just wants to keep things as they are; even if what you have desperately needs an overhaul.


What you let out of your sight may not be returned.  A quiet family is not necessarily good. And the quieter they are; the more risks they will take. To keep in the loop you need to ask a lot of questions. What are their needs? Are they having their unique needs met at the moment? It may seem to you as mere indulgence, but it’s important to them. 


Leo 23 July – 22 Aug


News about money or investments keeps your thoughts occupied until mid-month. Then its action time as Mars the god of self-assertion helps you stand up for what you believe in.  This is a time of advancement and achievement, but you could get tied down with self-destructive anger.  Take well-meant advice and if you want to move, study, or to travel, then now is the time to do it.


Active energy is flooding through you and is best to use it in your job or in a role you perform. Enthusiasm is wonderful; but take care you don’t take on more than you can handle. Decisions need careful thought, so take your time to weigh up the pros and cons. Travel plans can be realized, but you will likely be revisiting your old stomping grounds, or ancestral your home, rather than a new place.


Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep


Your ruling planet Mercury returns to your sign. Be honest with yourself as its time to reacquaint yourself with your goals and dreams. Venus the goddess of love is available to help. What are you waiting for? The stars give you permission, and you have the ability to stay poised and centered no matter what is before you.  Your finances are stressed and need careful management. 


Keep your eye on your budget or you will have trouble paying for recent indulgences.  This is a good month to make plans and come to good decisions. Sit down and devote some time to getting long term plans on paper.  If you need to learn something new, this is the perfect time to expand your brain with a course of study. 


Libra 23 Sep – 23 Oct


Ask and yea shall have; seek and yea shall find.  With Venus the goddess of love and luck entering your sign, followed by Mercury, the god of communication, anything that you want could happen.  Expect an easy flow of delightful connections, fantastic learning experiences, or a new love or friend. Anything hard, becomes easier. Then along comes the New Moon in Libra to enhance and nurture more positive energy. 


An inability to say what’s on your mind will cause your loved ones to try to push you into making declarations. Try and tell them this is a month for reflection and quiet contemplation.  There are opportunities for financial help, or for an unexpected flow to money to you. But it will not come with gambling, as you will deserve what you receive. 

Scorpio 24 Oct – 21 Nov



This is the month for facing up to consequences. What bad habits with diet or exercise do you have? What are you blind-spots? Take action or there will be tension. As yet you cannot change the outcome, but be patient. It will come soon.  Children or young people will take up time and energy. So find a place of peace and quiet to recover. Be wary of arguments at work.



Your ambitions and the time it takes to achieve them may upset those close to you, and loved ones may feel rejected. You start the month tongue-tied but good communication will become easier and a balance with what you want and what others want is achievable.  A New Moon in your sign suggests this is the perfect month to initiate plans and put them into action early next month.

Sagittarius 22 Nov – 21 Dec



Your role in the world and all the work you do is still being activated. But this may have bought up issues at home. Are you working too much or too hard? Do you take issues home with you?  Is all you think about being focused on the world outside your front gate? Your role will only get busier over the next few months. October

If you need to learn anything it will need active hands on hard work to achieve a positive outcome. So knuckle down with the instruction book and practice the art of stubbornness.  Some of you will give up because having a good time is very distracting. But be patient and the outcome is worth it. Enthusiasm is usually your strength, but this month it could get you into trouble.


Capricorn 22 Dec – 19 Jan


Movement is in the air! Or should I say; in the heavens! This is the month to move, travel, or to learn a new skill. You may do better than expected in any legal matters.  The authorities will think you are wonderful and will be smiling upon you, so success is likely to come your way.  So ask for some better conditions since now is the time to ask the world for what you want. 


Things change quickly so don’t expect any favors or luck with work this month. Or even in getting people to do what you want them to do. You actually need to take one step up and become the spokesman or a leader that “drives” others. You may not change the outcome, but at least you will feel good about yourself.  Then it’s time to reflect on your personal wishes and goals. What are you doing to achieve them? And What next?

Aquarius 20 Jan – 18 Feb


Tension over money and investments is on the cards this month. Somehow everything to do with value and worth becomes an emotional issue. And others will be prepared to argue with you. Don’t be caught napping. Delve deep and find out some hidden information, or maybe hidden resources; and be prepared. What are you worth to yourself? Be reassuringly expensive. Then take a well-earned break.

Feeling vulnerable or don’t know enough? All you really have to be is one step ahead of the others.  There are new opportunities regarding work, or the role you do. Enjoy your family and the desire to beautify your home environment. By the end of the month tension with a restless partner, or a close friend, occurs in regard to a working situation.

Pisces 19 Feb – 20 March


The Full Moon in Pisces leads to heightened emotions and sensitivity. At this time I wish it were all about you, but it’s not.  What others want, need and expect from you is all you will notice.  It’s a busy and complex time.  And you have your right to be sensitive.  But they will not see it that way. Go with the flow and enter deep water, knowing you can swim this sea!  


It will feel better when you express your concerns about a financial matter.  The important issue is to get good advice; but make sure it is “good”. Knowledge is power so do some research on you own.  It is a great time to study. Accept the offer of some travelling or the chance of a holiday. You deserve it! 


The Sun does move!

A lot of people do not realize that the Sun moves into the 12 signs of the zodiac on slightly different dates each year. If you are born close to the border of two signs then you are on the cusp and you are a blend of the two sun signs. The dates here are the 2011 Sun Ingress dates for Australia. Source is SolarFire.

What’s that in the Sky? Seeing Astrology in action September 1, 2011

Pleiades Star Cluster
Image via Wikipedia

For all you night owls

Not much planetary viewing as the only ancient god visible in the sky is Jupiter which will make an appearance through October and slowly rise up in the east sky.

 The Scorpion will slowly dive headfirst further and further down in the east and be gone by October.

For all you early birds

This is a worthwhile time to be an insomniac or up early. Jupiter is high overhead and Mars is rising in the east before the sun. A beautiful sight is Jupiter next to the Moon on the 17th Sep. By the end of October Jupiter will be sinking lower in the west and Mars rises to be high overhead. To help you find Mars, he will be next to the Moon on the 23rd Sep.

Look out for the 7 Sisters, otherwise known as the Pleiades, in the shoulder of Taurus the Bull. Let the Moon be your guide as she travels close by the Pleiades on the 18th Sep. The Pleiades are reputed to cause blindness by the ancients. Perhaps they looked at them all time and they found that after years of trying to count them; some do disappear. Funny about that! Nothing to do with failing eyesight at all!  But please do take a look as they are quite beautiful. The Mayas worshipped them and some sources say they are an important part of their calendar system.
