The last of the Ďwinter giantsí turns to go forward this week, as Uranus comes to the end of his backward phase in Aquarius, and starts to press on once more. All the big planets move through the signs like this, two steps forward and one step back, but what makes this one interesting is that this time, as Uranus swings forward, he will go right off the end of Aquarius and into Pisces. Which makes this week the start of the run-up to a new era, if you like, even though the actual entry into Pisces isnít until the start of next year.

This has interesting implications. Uranusís movement through the signs has been shown to correspond quite neatly with the eras of popular culture - the rock íní roll era, hippies, yuppies and so on. We have been in the present one since 1995, and itís time for a change. What it will involve is something we can only guess at, but it does mean that, as of now, weíre in the winding-up phase of the Uranus-in-Aquarius era, and getting ready for something new. If youíve been nurturing personal plans or ambitions, but so far havenít managed to do anything definite about them, then youíve got about six months to make something happen, or youíll find that the moment has gone and that everyone has moved on into something else.

Uranus is the planet of surprises, so this week, as he makes his presence felt, we should see several unexpected political initiatives. But will they be attention-grabbing last-chance efforts from the era thatís now ending, or slightly premature attempts at moving into the new age? Either way, like cheap fireworks, theyíre likely to take off with much noise and flame, but then falter, go out, and fall quietly back to earth.

Psychologists keep telling us to get to know our inner selves, to face our anger, and so on. This week you can do just that, by having a face-to-face confrontation with Mars, the planet of passion and anger. If youíre up before sunrise tomorrow, look up at the skies, find the moon, and a little below it will be a pinky-red point of light: Mars. Go on, vent your anger at him. Youíll feel so much better.

Research into Astrology and Infertility by Pat Harris, MSc., D.F.Astrol.S.

I would like to thank everyone who has responded to my earlier notices on Jonathan's website and who volunteered to take part in the research that I am conducting as part of my PhD in astrology and health psychology at Southampton University, UK. I now have quite a number of people taking part which will help me in conducting my study into factors that may or may not correlate with fertility treatment outcome. I should have a progress report out soon. However, I am still looking for women who are currently pregnant - not necessarily as a result of fertility treatment - and who would like to contact me about details of my research to see if they would like to take part. My email address is:

New Service is Top for the Charts
The Astrological Association of Great Britain is proud to announce that you can now speak LIVE to an expert astrologer. For an instant in-depth telephone consultation about your full horoscope call 0845 120 1416 or +44 207 436 9101
(a confidential 30-minute reading costs £29.50, payable by credit card. Or cheque/postal order from UK.)
Lines are open 9am-9pm GMT, Monday to Friday.
A few weeks ago, the Astrological Association of Great Britain launched this new, live fixed-fee, telephone chart reading service. It has since proved big hit with callers from all over the world. AA President Roy Gillett told Astro News: "I am delighted with the warm response that we have had. Once, if you wanted a reading of your full birth chart, you would have to struggle to find a genuine, reputable astrologer. Then, you would have had to make an appointment and travel miles. Now, at last, there's a quick and easy way to get your questions answered by a real expert - from the comfort of your own home." Mirror reader Julie Roberts from Rochester was equally enthusiastic. "I rang last Tuesday and spoke to an astrologer called Maria. Within moments, she was telling me details about my childhood that she could not possibly have known... then she said some fascinating things about my future.
