Astrological Review of January 2012

January seemed to be a month themed around economics and money. The headlines were filled with news and views on this topic, from speculation and fears about the future of Europe and the global economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to anger and indignation about banker’s bonuses and the apparent lack of corporate responsibility or social accountability exhibited by the finance sector when it comes to top executive pay in the… Continue reading Astrological Review of January 2012

Astrological Review of October 2011

With plenty of contacts between Venus and Mercury, October was an eventful month, especially for legal decisions. We had the headline-grabbing acquittal of Amanda Knox, jailed for the murder of Meredith Kercher, after her appeal hearing in Italy. This occurred when both were part of a stellium of planets in Libra, sign of justice and the law. Later with Venus and Mercury having ingressed into vindictive, sometimes vengeful Scorpio, from where they opposed the Moon and Jupiter, politician, Liam Fox, was forced to resign amidst scandalous rumours about his association with Adam Werritty.  A… Continue reading Astrological Review of October 2011

Astrological Review of August 2011

No sooner had the phone hacking scandal dissipated then the UK was hit by global stock market volatility with European and American shares falling to record lows in the wake of uncertainty about US and Italian national debts at the start of August. A few days later, a number of flashmobs and riots broke out, starting in Tottenham, London on the 6th, soon spreading across the UK the following week, accompanied by wholesale looting of certain high street shops . At the time, Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs came within… Continue reading Astrological Review of August 2011

Astrological Review of June 2011

June played host to two eclipses, starting with a partial solar eclipse in Gemini on the 1st. This signalled the start of a new six month phase in politics, intellectual thought, education, religious beliefs, the media, communications, commerce and travel matters. Saturn also finally ended its period of retrograde motion on the 13th in Libra - the sign ruling relationships, the law, fairness and justice, bringing internal and hidden issues back out into the world once again. During the eclipse, the Sun and Moon made a trine to Saturn, suggesting that regulations, authorities and structuresrelated to Libran-ruled matters might somehow… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 2011

Astrological Review of May 2011

At the very beginning of May, the world was startled by the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed during a covert operation by US military forces in Pakistan.  Jubilation by the American people soon turned to doubt and cynicism as it emerged that they had buried his body out at sea. Despite repeated calls for proof,  the US government refused to publish photographs of the corpse, leaving many wondering whether it was really true that this long-sought fugitive had indeed been caught and killed.… Continue reading Astrological Review of May 2011

Astrological Review of February 2011

During February, a series of contacts to the lunar nodes by major planets, Jupiter andUranus appeared to mobilise the populace of several North African and middle eastern countries, including Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Libya and Bahrain, into protesting against their despotic political leaders and calling for democratic political reform. Both Uranus and Jupiter have been hovering near the mid-point of the nodal axis since the beginning of February, together forming a T-square with… Continue reading Astrological Review of February 2011
