Love is in the Air

More Sally Fisher Art here.

Venus, the planet of love recently formed a square with Mars, the planet of action. If this astrological development were a microwaveable meal, there would be a label on the packet with the words: Warning - Contents HOT! Perhaps you're warming your hands now, or maybe you're running cold water over your fingertips. And if you've yet to feel the heat, well, there's still time to take advantage of this celestial dance. Passion, whether romantic or otherwise, is in the air!

Rare Aspects

Hi Oscar,
I would love to know if there are any aspects in astrology that are unusual, or have greater impact because they're rare. Donna

Hi Donna, The planets move around paths we call orbits. Distant planets such as Uranus and Pluto take longer to complete an orbit, the aspects between them are more significant and their impact is felt over longer periods. Since 2012, Uranus and Pluto have been coming in and out of square aspect. On December 26, these two come very close to squaring off one last time, with Jupiter also opposing Uranus. Now there's an exciting one to watch!

Weighty Words of Wisdom

More Sally Fisher Art here.

Today, Mercury trines Pluto. This suggests a day where secrets will abound. There's potential for insights into long-suffered problems too. It's also worth being careful of what we say, and to whom we speak, as words are particularly weighty... they may reach further than we realise and cut deep where they were only meant to tickle. But that doesn't mean we should be scared of saying our piece! The ideas we have now can make a real difference.

Rising to the Challenge

Can you explain what our Rising Sign means? Thanks, Piper

Hi Piper, Literally, your Rising Sign (or 'Ascendant') is the zodiac sign on the eastern horizon when you were born. Think of it like this: when someone offers their hand to us, we usually extend our own to shake it. When someone aggressively cuts a queue of traffic, we might be tempted to sound our horn. Our Ascendant represents how others see you and how we respond to the world. It influences our actions through reaction - when we let it!

Uplifting Hearts

More Sally Fisher Art here.

Saturn has been slowing down for a while now. It's preparing to turn direct after a period of retrogradation that stretches back to March this year. For those of us who've felt our progress hindered and our patience tested, this should help to start things moving. Due to Saturn's relationship with Venus, our hearts will feel lifted as the great taskmaster of the zodiac begins to turn. This is a weekend that could well have been worth waiting for.

Your Week Ahead

More Sally Fisher Art here.

The big astrological news is that Saturn is turning direct. It has been slowing down for a while and stationing since Wednesday, preparing to change direction in the sky. According to the ephemeris, which is the tome used by astrologers and astronomers alike, Venus forms a square with Saturn the moment it begins its forward motion. Venus happens to be in opposition to Neptune. What kind of a week do we have in store? A week where beautiful ideas become grounded in reality.
