Your Monthly Horoscopes
To get the best out of your monthly horoscope, use the horoscope maker to find your rising sign and sun sign decan. I mention specific signs in the YouTube video and you will see in the visuals which aspects will be affecting your decan.
On Apr 26, Mars makes its volcanic conjunction to Pluto which it does every two and a half years. The hotspot is at 21º Capricorn. This aspect could signify a tragedy, but on the positive side can also be empowerment and rising like a phoenix from the flames. Mars conjunct Pluto does a great job of purification by fire and is also incredibly sexy.
In the wider world, this may be seen in arson attacks, forest fires or the eruption of violence. Not only that but risk-taking Mars square Uranus happens at the end of Aries too on May 16! In traditional astrology Mars is making a move that is called ‘translation of light’, which means Mars is delivering something from Pluto to Uranus and can act as a facilitator.
Now technically, die-hard traditionalists would not even count Uranus or Pluto as planets, but I certainly think this exchange is valid in this case! We can clearly seen the fall-out from the 2012 to 2015 Uranus square Pluto. in hindsight now. Many demographic changes have happened in parts of Europe as a result of the migration that occurred over this timeframe. But I think it will be useful at this time to look back at the post and review what I said about the Uranus square Pluto at the time. The period between Apr 26 to May 16 then may mirror some of the themes of Uranus square Pluto in 2015. This is important because the planet of war enters the shadow zone of next season’s Mars Retrograde on May 11…Mars square Uranus starts to make itself felt on May 12 while Mercury is also conjunct Uranus on Alrisha. Expect some news of unexpected alliances forming, but these allies might be perceived as threatening to some. Mars square Uranus can be shocking and sudden, with a speedy collapse or an accident. Uranus will, however, make its first ingress into Taurus after spending 8 years in Aries on May 16!
May 25 gives us the first Jupiter trine Neptune of 2018. (The 1st one occurred on Dec 2, 2017) This is a major aspect pattern and really helps us navigate through the harsher aspects of 2018. It brings hope and spiritual harmony. Jupiter trine Neptune is also a very charitable aspect, but one that needs to be channeled realistically so that the help really does goes to the grass-roots, needy people. Trines can abuse some folk’s good nature and trusting hearts. The road to ruin is paved with good intentions!! Sorry to be so Saturn.. However, it is so easy to become very dewy-eyed at the glittering grand trine on Jun 1. It really is just too angelic for words.
The Moon turns our angel delight into a kite and you just might feel as high as one, if this grand water trine hits any of your personal planets. Venus is even on Sirius, the Goddess Isis no less, which is devotion on a grand scale. It’s so easy to fall for soulmates and gurus at this time, or someone who feels like both. You might need to anchor your feet the ground before your head bumps into the moon… This gorgeous grand trine is in effect until Jun 5, so this is a great week for a wedding! All in all, June is a very romantic month with a cupid’s dart of a Venus/North node opposition Mars/South Node on Jun 20. Thrash out all your passion until… Mars Retrograde commences proper on Jun 27 and will travel between 28º Capricorn to 8º Aquarius.
