Astrology Overview for WC 21st April 2014

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC21st April 2014. The week begins with the Sun continuing its journey in Taurus. This is asking us to consolidate, to look for value in what we do. And this is going to be emphasized once Mercury joins the Sun on Wednesday. However before then on Tuesday there is a Quarter Moon in Aquarius. This suggests that idealism can battle with the realism - especially when it comes to financial decisions, and you may find yourself with some choices which require some compromises, whichever way you go.

Still, Mercury's move soon sees it link in conjunction with the Sun. When these to get together so tightly it is known as combust. In a natal horoscope this can give people a wonderful mental brilliance, and ability to come up with fantastical ideas. Yet in a transit it can see people jump to conclusions rather too quickly, so it will be important to avoid that trap.

Yet in the second half of this week both the Sun and Mercury are being influenced highly positively, by the dreamy influence of Neptune. What we can take from this is that the practicality of Taurus is softened by the imagination that Neptune brings the situations. Put the two together and you can have a winning formula. And of course Taurus although Earth, and Fixed, is also ruled by Venus which in itself can be highly creative.

Ironically Venus is forging itself a great link with Saturn in the second half of this week. With Venus also in Pisces, Saturn provides a stabilising force, and if you do find yourself really clicking with someone or have done recently this can be an opportunity to forge even deeper bonds together.

However despite all this positivity, there is still a Grand Cardinal Cross in effect, which can be very volatile indeed. This can create a lot of tension, and see powerful forces opposing one another. It is not to be taken lightly. Expect developments on the world stage, whether the superpowers flex their muscles. The obvious platform for this would be in the Ukraine, but there are plenty of other situations where repressive energies are being used to withhold people's freedom of speech, and democratic will. Egypt is a very good example of this.

In our own personal situations it's just important not to be too rash and impatient if things do not go quite as quickly as we want. Laying down ultimatums can also lead to difficult outcomes. Where possible keep the diplomacy going. For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site PatrickArundell.com

Your Astrology Overview for WC 14th of April, 2014

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 14th April 2014. From Monday to Wednesday, Mercury continues to connect with the Cardinal T-square I told you about last week. To keep a sense of proportion will be absolutely essential. Yet if you are feeling particularly enterprising don't let anyone's pragmatism pulverize your passion. It's important to hold with the free flowing ideas that come up for you.

Tuesday also sees a Lunar Eclipse occurring in the sign of Libra. Because Libra is associated with relating, during the next six months it will be important that we stay mindful of the way we reach out and communicate with others. A lot of the nuances of successful relating is based on the ability to listen, so if you are engaged in a relationship which is proving tricky, just check that what you think you're hearing is really what's being said.

What has been a Cardinal T Square for much of the year, also becomes a Cardinal Grand Square, as Mars' reversal in Libra brings it into the equation. This can lead to a fantastic amount of volatility. Situations which have been "simmering" can become much more explosive. This can be true of in global events, as much as in our personal lives, because there are so many contra-energies competing with one another in a push, pull and stretching way.

Mars is opposite Uranus, but squares Pluto and Jupiter. With Mercury in the mix early week too, you can see that impetuousness is possible, but don't do anything which could endanger your prospects, by being overly rash. The winners in this week will be the people who cool heads, and don't get too sucked into all the raw energy that is going to pulsating around the heavens.

Fortunately there is one fine link that does involve Pluto. And this sees Venus forge a sextile. This is likely to coincide with the recognition of just how valuable someone is in your world, and therefore a deepening of the bond.

Sunday also sees the astral curtain come down on the week, in a dynamic way, as the Sun makes its way into Taurus. This can be a welcome and earthy counterpoint to all fire that is going to be raging, and help us to look at the things that represent stability, security and foundations. This will be particularly apt as we come to terms with the feistiness of events, earlier in the week. For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site PatrickArundell.com

Your Astrology Overview for WC 7th of April, 2014

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 7th of April, 2014.

Mercury moves into Aries on Monday. This is going to bring a much more action orientated vibe to our talking and thinking. However, on the same day there is a Quarter Moon in Cancer, suggesting initiating things without given them due thought, and especially from an emotional dynamic can be counter-productive.

Also from Monday through to Thursday the Sun is in opposition to Mars. Now this is ironic because of course Mars is the ruling planet of Aries, but is in detriment in Libra. This can create an enormous amount of frustration and tempers can boil over. This is not a time to impose a might is right attitude on anyone. Any tendency to do so could meet with stiff resistance. Equally, this is a time when minor accidents are possible by rushing around trying to get too much done, too quickly.

Yet at the end of last week there was another significant change. If you recall Venus arrived in Pisces, a sign that it's more than happy to occupy. And from Wednesday through to the end of this week she is going to be conjunct the co-ruler of Pisces, Neptune. Now this can work in a number of ways with this more aggressive Sun Mars opposition. On one hand it could soften the all-out forcefulness, but on another it could just increase the level of confusion. If you're unsure where you stand in a relationship you may find yourself trying to get a partner to open up. Then again someone may be reaching out to you. But being as clear as possible, will certainly help.

By Sunday, Mercury itself goes into a conjunction, this time with Uranus. Whilst this is absolutely brilliant to be adopt an inventive, reforming approach, and to be more spontaneous, it also joins in with the T-square which is been ongoing all of 2014. So in short we have Mercury square Jupiter - a tendency to see things in an overblown way, or to exaggerate, and we also have Mercury square Pluto - a tendency to find it difficult to hear the points of view of others. With the intense energies of Uranus raising the temperature, these influences can be hyped up, so care will be needed. Whilst Aries energy can be very progressive, and help us to get things started, being aware of the unintended consequences of our actions is the key to success this week.

Astrology Overview for WC 31st of March, 2014

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 31st of March, 2014.

The New Moon in Aries, which occurred as last week ended, was broadly caught up in the T-square between Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto. The planetary Contra indications that this creates will therefore be continue to be felt as we enter this momentous new month. Put simply April could be one of the most explosive times for many, many years. As is often the case with Eclipses and there are two in April - events can slightly proceed their occurrence.

But all round the world that does seem to be a tremendous amount of upheaval, not just in Ukraine, but in Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Central Africa - even Taiwan, which shows that the radical energies of Uranus in Aries and its clash with Pluto, and Pluto's opposition with Jupiter, creates a might is right environment which runs roughshod over people's human rights, or people you have been oppressed are rising up against the power that has been imposed upon them.

But of course in these cases, it's never a simple process and when the Arab Spring uprisings occurred it wasn't a one-off event. And as different factions fight for ascendancy, and power, this will go backwards and forwards and there is certain to be more of this is nothing month.

If at this week Uranus is going to be broadly conjunct the Sun for all of its duration. Now many ways this can be a positive influence, especially in terms of encouraging derring-do, and a desire to take on new challenges but if you do get the urge to make some sudden decisions it is going to be important that you do try to think through the ramifications, however unintended of what these might be.

Ironically on the first day of this week, there is a really sweet link between the ruler of Aries Mars, and its counterpoint in love and relating with Venus. By Wednesday the Sun as well and truly locked into the volatile T-square, as it reaches its high point and the bottle top almost certainly will blow off in some global events and perhaps even in our own lives too.

Yet there is an opportunity this week for reform that can be more long-lasting. This comes about because Mercury forges a fine link with Saturn. The fluidity of Mercury in Pisces, and this signs Mutable energies merge with the solidity, of the Fixed Saturn in Scorpio. So if there is something stable that you're working on, and you have invested time and energy, but also are prepared to be flexible in pursuit of what you are trying to achieve this can be extremely valuable.

On Saturday Venus also moves home, transferring from the broadly detached Aquarius, into Pisces. Here she is exalted or particularly happy and at ease. This may lead to some more idealistic desires for peace and tranquillity as the week draws to a close, but I think for many of us if we are resisting any changes to the being thrust in our direction this week is a red flag to suggest that that may be very difficult to do.
