Enjoy and inspire
The chart for today shows us that the Sun is opposite Jupiter and Venus moving into Gemini – how will you enjoy the energy and enjoy and inspire yourself and others?
These are strange times indeed and we all have much to be aware of and to be wary of. And yet to find ways of enjoying ourselves too because, after all, that is a part of our being human! Planetary wise there’s a lot going on at the moment with much information and mis-information. We hear and see media ‘talk’ with so much appearing to be going on ‘under the surface’. There are many, many distractions for us all and it is easy for us to ;buy into’ being distracted!
We all love to be entertained and, of course, entertainment, from whichever direction, distracts us, fuels us, soothes us and inspires us. I should probably write an article all about how many directions we receive our information and entertainment from however, for now, how do you let yourself be taken away from reality for a while and enjoy and inspire?
Over the next few days especially I would ask you to ground yourself by asking:
Am I distracting myself?
How am I being distracted?
Is it possible that I am distracting others?
When am I inspired? Really and truly inspired?
And then the entry of Venus into Gemini will show up for all of us in ways that we are able to bring great joy to ourselves, each other and to the planet.
Yes – the message is as big as that.
Give yourself permission to enjoy and inspire and take on the responsibility for making the world, our world, a place of inspiration and joy.
I was inspired to write this piece on Saturday, Saturn’s day.
What will you do?

How are you today? Venus in Taurus asks the Moon in Leo!
Friday is Venus day and so the day that we celebrate that planet of beauty, compassion, growth and abundance. And today we see Venus in Taurus and the Moon in Leo.
Venus in Taurus
The planet is at the end of the sign of Venus and is preparing to move into Gemini which will alter the energy. However she has not changed sign yet and is still giving us much to think about for time spent in our home, for our self and for each other. Venus in Taurus enjoys the things in life that we enjoy which is different for each of us as we all have our own unique concept of what ‘wealth’ is.
Moon in Leo
The Moon is in Leo and so we have an opportunity to enjoy ourselves. What makes you feel good? It is too easy to recommend ‘self care’ sometimes as what is caring to the self for one person may well be excruciatingly awkward for another! I usually ask ‘What makes you feel good?’ and then wait for the answer because that is what he planets expect!
We all know what recharges us or rebalances us and that is our own self care. Unique to our self. Venus in Taurus and Moon in Leo would quite naturally enjoy those experiences that allow our relaxation and that is, perhaps, a spa or a cream tea … OK maybe that’s just me! However you get the picture? It’s what will make you feel that you are treating your self.
How are you today? Venus in Taurus asks the Moon in Leo! The energy in the sky is there for us all to ask ourselves how we are and to then have fun, and enjoy, our own particular form of pampering.
As always, with love from Alison

Will you speak from your heart today and know that your messages will be heard, listened to and seen! Especially as the planets are inviting us all to speak up and know that our voices will be loud enough to register.
Today is Jupiter day (as it’s Thursday) and Jupiter is in Sagittarius opposite the Sun in Gemini. When we look at the chart it is so interesting (well every chart is intriguing and this is no exception!) and today we see that the emphasis today is on communication.
With the Moon opposing Saturn & Pluto trining Venus we build up a picture of our words, actions and thoughts truly having meaning. be aware that, for the week ahead, emotions are likely to be very close to the surface and yet also we may feel as if this only applies to each of us individually! Speak from your heart today – especially as it is Jupiter day. Whatever you send out is expanded and made even more ‘so’! You have an amazing opportunity to send out great vibrations into the universe and to surround our planet with love. Imagine, just for a moment, how it would be if we all sent out channelled love. Just how amazing would this little blue planet be if it were surrounded completely with love and gentleness.
Speak from your heart and be heard, allow your heart to be heard and also remember to hear others.
Be gentle with yourself. Wear something purple today. And delight in the beauty of you, of others and of this amazing Universe in which we live.
As always, with love, from Alison

Mercury moves into Cancer!
Do you speak to your neighbour questions Mercury as he moves into the caring sign of Cancer today which is already inhabited by the Moon (it’s ruler). This wonderful Mercury & Moon conjunction can be expected to highlight areas of compassion and thoughts of where we should, we really should, be doing more. Maybe the healing is required within the home or outside. Perhaps our compassion is required towards our self or towards each other … or even towards people who we don’t even know!
Or maybe Mercury Moon in Cancer brings us a message of loneliness.
We can look at the chart for today and see that the Moon is square to Chiron with another indicator of our messages of healing on a wider scale and wider times. Plus it also brings the worry to mind of that loneliness.
There is a growing epidemic around us every day and it is an epidemic becoming of epic proportions. Yes, there are the concerns of environment and, quite rightly so, we should be acting more to safeguard our planet. Indeed our oceans need our help. Nature requires our attention. However there is another concerning aspect to our life in the 21st Century.
It is quite incredible that, in this connected world in which we live, people are lonely. Loneliness is not age related nor anything else related. Loneliness is sweeping through our world neighbour by neighbour and we are not only losing the ability to recognise it but it is not a popular term to use. Who wants to admit that, with social networking promoting ‘friends’, they are feeling ‘alone’.
I ask you – do you speak to your neighbour?
It was not so long ago that I would wait for the bus to go to work. There were the same faces at the bus stop at that time of the morning. An odd bunch of people who, ordinarily, would not meet up and yet there we were. And we chatted. We got to know each other through the shared purpose of waiting for a bus. It was noted when someone was not there. Now no-one speaks. Look at a bus queue the next time you are near to one. Everyone will be on their phones and either reading or listening to music. No-one speaks.
Are you lonely? Do you feel that sense of being alone and not having anyone to speak to? Are you able to put yourself into those shoes for just a moment? And then magnify it to every day and week …
This is likely to be an emotional day. And yet also an uplifting day if we choose. Mercury messages are often factual and sometimes playful and then again witty or exactly what is needed to be said. We have the choice as to how we deal with Mercury and what we action from his communications! Bearing in mind the proximity to the Moon and those messages will be tinged with emotion and intuition. There will be a depth to our conversations today and a sense of taking those insights forward.
Mercury is a fast moving planet. The messages have a zing and then the planet moves on having asked us “Do you speak to your neighbour?”
And for you
Mercury moves into Cancer today and joins the Moon. There is always something felt at the moment when a planet (or star!) changes signs. Something happens or is seen and an essence of what that planetary aspect ‘is’ becomes apparent. Often it is subtle and yet, when we are aware, we see it unfold. I am often asked about when a planet is at the very end of a sign or at the beginning of another and whether this is ‘on the cusp’ and my answer is that a planetary body will either be in one sign of the zodiac or another with the energy changing accordingly.
We urgently need to home in on loneliness and start speaking. Would you smile at your neighbour sitting on the bus? How often do you ask how someone is and then listen to the answer?
A Mercury in Cancer offers us all the opportunity to consider our connections with each other. And the Moon brings in a gentle kind of love.

All about you!
Why would you want to know more about … you? How could it possibly be of help to know how others see you? Or, indeed, how you relate to others – your language if you like.
Would it be useful to understand your deeper purpose? I was recently asked whether astrology has the answer to our soul purpose. And yes. By looking at where certain stars were at the moment of birth so much is unlocked for ‘why’s and ‘hows’ and ‘deep purposes’.
Your Birth Chart
Why would you want to look at your birth chart? What’s so special about the day, month. year, time and place of your birth? Well for one thing … it’s absolutely unique to you! Even twins (with an accurate time/s of birth) will have subtly differing birth charts.
I’m guessing you know your Sun (star) sign? Most people do and newspaper sun sign astrology is still very popular having been started in the 50s. And, when done well, has much to offer.
However a full astrological chart has so much more to give you.
At the moment of your birth all of the planets and stars were around the planet Earth and they were occupying signs of the zodiac. You may well have been born with the Sun in (for example) Pisces however you also have access to so much more planetary energy. The Moon will have been somewhere … and all the other planets too!
Already we can see that your birth day shows us where the planets and stars were in the sky. And then … and this is where it gets exciting! … your time & place of birth gives us a placing for the horizon. So we know whether the Sun & Moon (and other planets) were above or below the horizon at the time of birth. For instance a Noon birth will have the sun high in the sky, visible to all. A midnight birth would be the opposite.
And when we plot the positions of the stars, planets, signs of the zodiac as a map we get to that amazingly wonderful uniqueness of you as a human being. The chart is divided into 12 segments (houses) each containing a sign of the zodiac and relating to an area of you. Your character, wealth, career for instance. Any planets or stars falling into that house will give us more information.
As if that wasn’t already enough, we add into the ‘mix’ the whereabouts of planets and stars right now. And that is when we can begin to understand ourselves and the choices, potentials and possibilities that the Universe offers to us in this brilliant lifetime.
You may have gathered by now that I absolutely know, with every little bit of stardust that makes me, that we are all truly empowered when we listen to our charts, the rhythm of the universe and the symbols we meet along the way.
And I know you too can listen to, and experience, exactly the same information at all times. Information from your own inner landscape, from the stars and the planets and information gleaned from the messages and symbols that our eyes and ears become aware of.
Just take a moment to consider how much richer your life would be by receiving the unique information that the Universe wants you to hear.
And, as the Universe is constantly on the move, so the effects of the planets and stars toward our birth chart is unique for each of us. By understanding our charts and what is happening now so we can listen to the rhythm of the Universe for our own personal story. The Universe wants the absolute best for us and sends us planetary energy of help!
