There is always something very special and interesting when a planet (or star) changes sign. And both Mercury and the Sun changes signs by this time tomorrow!
Both are now at the last degree of Taurus and I would invite you to think back over the last month and ask yourself what will you be taking with you into the next? And yes our calendar month is still the same but the planets will be moving from one sign into another and not forgetting where they have been! The Sun and Mercury moving into Gemini will alter the way that we look at, and communicate with, certain aspects of life here in our homes, our streets, our communities …
Tuesday is Mars day and our day of action. Shall we resolve to serve our small corner of our world well?

The Moon is in Sagittarius and making a square to Neptune. More about that later.
For now what did the Full Moon at the weekend bring up for you? If something surfaced did you have the right inspiration to deal with it? We are so blessed in this time to have access to many different good and beautiful:-
ways of healing, of talking, of meditating, of distracting ourselves, of hearing inner voice …
And so I am going to say that, actually, all of it is OK. Yes – even distraction is absolutely fine if it is listening to our inner voice and right for you and beneficial! Sometimes immersing the self in an engrossing film is exactly the best thing. Or listening to music while in a bubble bath … Or finding a counsellor who can help you through and beyond something … or a Reiki Practitioner to give energy. Or exploring making art.
You know what is right for you and what will inspire you to greater things. And so today is Monday and ruled by the Moon. And the current planetary map shows Moon square to Neptune. Give a few minutes (or longer) today to ponder, or write about, what will inspire you to even more greatness.

I usually keep Sunday Astrology snippets short due to it being … well … Sunday. However there is rather a lot going on today. So …
Last night saw a deeply awe-inspiring Full Moon in Scorpio which also saw the Sun trine to Pluto and Saturn. Deeply awe-inspiring and much space for dreaming and vision questing. And the energy will still be reverberating around for today and into tomorrow.
Today’s chart has the Moon moving into Sagittarius and so taking that wonder-full energy and into the sign which happily broadcasts it across the world and beyond. It’s as if the Universe is telling us to take hold of our dreams and expand them and grow them and record them somewhere.
And then there is a conjunction of Venus and Uranus in Taurus and that, together with other aspects, lead me to ask you ‘ How Are You?’
And so there is the essence of Sunday’s chart for you today. How are you feeling? How are you and yours feeling? And are you able to enjoy a balancing act today?
Current Planetary Activity = nights of not sleeping and then nights of deep sleeping. Dreams being dreamt at night / visions arising for changes to be made later in the year.
Breathe and know that .. actually … all in good time and nothing needs rushing right now.
Enjoy being here on this wonder-full little blue planet!

Today the chart has a trine between Saturn and the Sun/Mercury conjunct in Taurus. Saturn is in Capricorn and currently retrograde plus he is conjunct to Pluto (also retrograde).
Saturn has many layers and aspects as we use and understand the energy in our own charts and also as he moves around the sky.
Amongst many things Saturn is said to be symbolised by the metal lead in alchemy, Saturn can also be symbolised by the stones of obsidian, jet, onyx or deep sapphire. Consider how the Sun will bring out a glistening to a stone such as granite or a gleam to lead. Saturn has gold when we look, or work, with it.
Working with Saturn requires patience and care. Often a Saturn transit will ask for the ‘i’s to be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed. And yet then we received the rewards. Saturn will always reward.
And so, for today, I’d love to hear where you find unexpected gold or glimpse a shimmer out of the corner of your eye.

If you have been around the blogs over the last few days you will have realised our astrology of now has planets changing signs and going retrograde and all sorts of movements. Here is both a recap and also sunrise essence for today!
1) Venus has entered into Taurus and is now at 2º conjunct to Uranus at 3º ;
2) Mars is at 0º (40′) of Cancer which is ruled by the Moon ;
3) The Moon is at 3º Scorpio as it begins to close in on opposing the Sun and thus becoming full tomorrow ;
4) The Sun is in Taurus which is ruled by Venus.
Today is Friday and the day we honour Venus and so it feels beautiful to be able to connect the dots to form a circle such as above. Circle.
Shall we celebrate circles today? Venus loves family (whether by blood or by tribe) and Venus in Taurus brings to mind the hearth. So find time today to go outside and touch the earth. And enjoy the connection with our ancestors.

PS – Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are all retrograde giving us all pause to reflect. On Venus day especially give yourself permission to take time for you!
Venus has just entered into Taurus and meets up with Uranus in a conjunction. And Mercury, plus the Sun, are also in that sign. Quite a powerhouse of Taurean energy for our delight. And we can focus that on our desire to help the planet with a beautiful Mars entering into Cancer. Oh yes and Mars is opposite to Jupiter.
So big energy and yet a short message from me to you today! What are you able to do right now to help our amazing little blue planet Earth? And then what else are you able to do today?
It only takes one small step from each of us to add together into a giant step forward.
We are all unique and with our own pathways to walk. Imagine if we all did one small yet different thing … what a difference we could make. In one day!
Jupiter energy is big energy. Taurus loves the earth and all things to be cherished.

With a title such as “Mercury is at 16º Taurus today and making an interesting angle to Saturn” we could be forgiven for not expecting any dramatic conversations however there are several aspects to this particular energy.
When I set the chart for sunrise Saturn is conjunct to the South Node of the Moon and therefore both are trine to Mercury. With the Moon in Libra and opposite to Chiron it is a mix which could very well bring challenges to the surface.
It is a powerful mixture and one that I recommend to be aware of. You could find that memories of the past are surfacing and that those memories wish to be heard. The Moon in Libra will offer us all tact and compassion whether for ourselves or for others.
The universe sends us planetary patterns giving energies for us to use in our evolution. We are all unique and at different stages of our “work in progress”.
This is mental health week and so the planets are also saying to be aware of where we have come from and how much we, individually and collectively, have evolved.
Be loving towards your self and also towards others.

PS – I always include Chiron in my consultations as he holds many keys to the karma, and past wounds, we were born to recover from. Curious? x
Yes it’s Tuesday again and the day of the week we honour Mars energy. The God Mars will move mountains and start actions off for us when we tune in and ask!
Mars is in Gemini and at 29º of that sign. So we had better make use of him giving us that extra buzz as he prepares to leave the sign of the zodiac most concerned with communication and to enter Cancer at Sunrise (GMT) on Thursday.
And also we know that Mars is opposite Jupiter right now – which both expands and exacerbates the energy. There is a note of caution around the chart for today and that is to not let yourself get away with … well … yourself! It is absolutely fine to decide to run a mile and yet not 24 unless you are a marathon runner! It is a brilliant idea to begin making something or to plan a new direction and take steps toward it. Just ensure that you don’t push expectations too far.
I know. This sounds very confusing. On the one hand I am saying ‘do’ and ‘act’ and ‘begin’. And yet also ‘caution for taking it gently’. As if Mars could ever take anything gently! However remember that we have all of the planets and stars creating their weaving patterns for our benefit – ever changing charts and maps.
Mars plus Jupiter will certainly offer us the opportunity to push big plans and put actions into motion. And we need to – as the energies of the last few days have been very much geared towards our inner contemplations. However knowing that there is big energy forming in the Universe (and the chart for today has no less than 3 grand trines) leads us to conscious choice of how we use energy to our best advantage.
be gentle and as always, with love, from Alison
What a great day to write a letter or to send a card to someone. To rekindle a friendship perhaps. The Moon is in Virgo and opposite Neptune in Pisces. An even more apt use of the energy would be to meditate or to access your imagination in whatever way fits for you. It’s a dreamy aspect and so not a day to really expect decisions to be made. At least not decisions about practical issues!
And yet a chart is a whole and not only one, two or more planets/stars. I have been asked how I am able to write something different each day. The planetary bodies are constantly on the move and creating different patterns of energy for our benefit. I use the sunrise chart for each day GMT to ensure that the essence of the day is here in my articles for you!
And so I will add into the mix Mars and Jupiter today. Mars is in Gemini opposite to Jupiter in Sagittarius. Instead of writing one letter, you may find yourself on a roll and sending three! Or your meditation may well give you insights galore and, if so, please do write them down and take time over mulling over.
Great communication day today. Especially with, and to, those we love and care for.

PS – Curious about which sign of the zodiac the Moon was in at the moment of your birth? Book a discovery call and let’s chat about it …
The Sun today is in Taurus and the Moon in Leo. Create and play. Be open to joy of living here on planet Earth and also to the wonder of this amazing Universe in which we live. The Sun and Moon would have been the earliest planetary bodies visible to our ancestors and, together, they give us warmth, light, day and night, months and years. The Sun and the Moon give us a rhythm of life.
I would love to hear how you see the Sun and the Moon? How you feel about the cycle of their rhythm. Do you Moon watch?
The Moon is waxing in energy as it grows towards fullness next week. And the Sun is moving toward the Solstice in June. Times are changing as always.
And, as always, with love, from Alison
