The Full Moon in Pisces on 21st September – The incomplete truth







We are on the verge of another full Moon, and this one early tomorrow morning (UK time) lands in the sacrificial sign of Pisces. As you will know if you have followed my work or any other reputable astrology writer, the Full Moon is a moment in time when everything comes together and the full extent of a situation is known and revealed. Now I preface that this is normally the case, but in this particular situation and under this full Moon, I am not so sure if the full extent of what is going on will be opened out. The reason is that both Pisces where the Full Moon will be located and its conjunction with Neptune moving in its own sign may cast elements of doubt and will bring a lack of clarity over proceedings. I say may, because with Neptune and Pisces, you never know where the end is, as everything is so open-ended.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra – How we relate to each other













Yesterday as we experienced a New Moon in Virgo, Mercury quietly entered the retrograde zone where it will be operating between now and 22nd November. Often we Astrologers get fixated on the actual degrees where Mercury stops and stations, and we forget the general theme that is going on. Especially in Virgo season, one might be prone to take our eyes off the wider picture, but we shouldn't.

Simone Biles wthdraws from the Tokyo Olympics




There is no doubt that Simone Biles has over the past decade been the best female gymnast on the planet. Supreme at her sport and almost unbeatable, but even the great ones cannot stand in the way of the planets when they come knocking on the door. Today in a surprise move, she withdrew from the US Gymnastic team in the middle of the team competition, siting mental health issues as the cause.

This Week in Astrology - 26th July until 1st August 2021 – Flexibility











This week begins rather quietly, and there will be no new aspects on either Monday or Tuesday, and it's only in mid-week when the action will begin. This will see Mercury which has been moving through emotional Cancer shift into brash and bold Leo early on Wednesday 28th July. As it does so, it will immediately pick up on an inconjunct aspect to Jupiter, and here we may have an issue of being too forthright for our own good, before suddenly realising that we have rather overstepped the mark. It is possible that we may have to retract what we say, or express our ideas and feelings in more measured terms. Decisions we make in the heat of the moment we may come to regret, and the landscape will change further later on in the day, as Jupiter moves out of Pisces and back into Aquarius. What started out as a good idea, may end up being a total misjudgement, so be prepared to make last minute changes, if needs be. If you are making a trip today, watch out for unexpected delays, or things going wrong en-route.
