Hot, dry Mars is taking a cool, refreshing dip in the gentle waters of Pisces, taking a break from his recent tussles against the binding energy of Saturn. Like a boxer in between rounds, he’s getting water splashed on his face, cuts attended to and something sweet to slurp on before he goes for the...

Aquarius is an air sign, and its fixed nature always reminds me of the still quiet mountain air, where the eye is drawn far along the horizon to lands beyond. With Mars now in Aquarius, our energy is fuelled by higher perspectives, with a lofty mission to drive towards. Inventive, unusual and intelligent, he favours...

I always think of a steam train with Mars in Capricorn – the heat, noise and strength of a huge metal object flying along its tracks. When they were first created, they could transport people, animals and goods from one place to another at speeds never seen before in human history. The heat of Mars...

Mars always loves a mission, and as the great activator just moved into the archer’s sign of Sagittarius, his charge now is the ultimate search for truth and higher meaning, seeking the bigger picture. I always think of Shaolin monks with this placement, the Chan (Zen) Buddhist monks with elite warrior training who revere all...

As the fiery planet enters its own realm, it heaves a sigh of relief and starts to get back to work. Mars in Scorpio is powerful and passionate, in a subtle almost mysterious way. He is intense in the depths of Scorpio, a smouldering fire here and his piercing nature demands honesty, loyalty and depth...

It’s time for the warrior to turn diplomat, leaving behind the directness of the battlefield for the subtle ways of the political realms. It’s not comfortable, yet the warrior knows firsthand the costs of war and is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep peace. Venus’s sign smooth’s the edges of this rough diamond,...

Full Moons are always about finding the middle ground between two seemingly different energies. This time around we have the Sun in efficient, practical Virgo, opposing the mystical, ethereal Moon in Pisces. Picture discerning Virgo trying to peer its way through the dreamy fog of Pisces and it seems the two cannot meet. However, the...

A cool change is blowing through from the Universe, as Mars has moved into the cool, earthiness of Virgo. While all the Leo fire had the desired empowering and cleansing effect, there’s now a sense of getting our feet back on the ground and mapping out our path ahead as we take all the passionate...
