New Moon in Aquarius - Your Astrology Overview for the week of Feb 8th, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 8th Feb 2016. This week begins with a New Moon in Aquarius. However, this is a New Moon with a difference, as it squares to the powerful influence of Mars, in the sign of Scorpio. The more idealistic values and influence of a typical Aquarius New Moon is about a sense of community, co-operation, friendliness, sociability and kindness. All these can come to the fore, but with Mars in attendance that old Maxim of not mixing business with pleasure is something to hold and also being conscious of any friends or member of a group who tends to use the dark arts in order to get their own way.
 
Monday and Tuesday also see the continuation of Venus's square with Uranus. The combination of these two influences can certainly bring more forcibly to the surface any politics, which had been rumbling around in the background around close associations. Fortunately, on the same days, Mercury forges a fine link to Jupiter, and if you are engaged in more entrepreneurial matters, this can be very helpful.
 
The week does though also see Mars influential, in a more positive way. In the first half, it links potently with Pluto, giving us fantastic willpower and especially if our efforts are well directed and for the good of all. Also all through the week it continues to forge a most confident angle with Jupiter. Jupiter is a course, the planet of growth that in the sign of Virgo. We do need to be more concerned with details rather than simply the big picture, so as long as we're not too gung ho in what we try to do we can use this aspect, helpfully.
 
Finally, on Sunday, Mercury makes its way into Aquarius. This is going to help to mitigate some of the more negative energies of the square from Mars on the New Moon. Mercury in Aquarius can just bring a little bit more logic and fair-minded debates into play.

A Frustrating Week... Handle with Care! Astrology for the week of Feb 1st, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 1st Feb 2016. The week begins with a Quarter Moon in the sign of Scorpio. This can create or at least highlight the potential for jealousy or undercurrent's around groups of friends. If you have one acquaintance who likes to dominate your time and energies you may find yourself becoming more resistant to their charms.

Monday to Thursday, continues to see Mercury alongside the planet of change and transformation Pluto. In itself this aspect can make people rather strident, even evangelical in their points of view, but because of the duo square to Uranus, a clash of cultures or approaches between the old established ways and the new challenging, fluid ones can take place. If you work in an environment which constantly seems to be in a state of flux. This particular aspect will not make it any more pleasant and can create an ongoing level of uncertainty.

Ironically, the two rulers of Scorpio, Mars and Pluto actually co-operate brilliantly all week. And if you're very clear about some of the things that you want to change in your world the willpower and determination they bring to helps us see these alterations through, can be absolutely enormous.

The second half of the week however, there is something of an alteration, as Mercury moves on from the tight grasp of Pluto, to be replaced by the rather more sultry, shimmering energies of Venus. When Pluto Venus get-together in a conjunction it often points towards an intensity around sensuality, intimacy money or power. However, the subtlety that Venus often brings the situation means that people will lay the charm on with a trowel, but it's often to get what they want. So, if someone seems to be two-year uncharacteristically charming, try to figure out what their true motive is. This particular aspect can be very destructive in an ongoing but rocky romantic relationship, and especially with Uranus squaring the pair. As one person tries to hang on and restricts to maintain the status quo this could push a partner to be ever more rebellious. Sparks can certainly fly. It is also possible to meet someone for the first time, rather unexpectedly. This person could enter our orbits rather dramatically, but won't necessarily hang around for very long, especially if their desire is rather stronger than their willingness to work at a longer term involvement. Then again, if a brief fling is exactly what you feel you need at the present time, and you both agree this is the terms of reference, you may decide to go for it.

In the second half of the week the Sun in Aquarius also forges a brilliant link with Uranus, its modern ruler. This suggests that thinking on our feet and being flexible, and open to new ideas and approaches can be very good for us and help us to refresh things that have become stale and rather samey.

Also from Thursday to Sunday, Mercury now going forwards in Capricorn forges a terrific trine with Jupiter the planet of fortune which continues to track backwards in Virgo. But both are in earth signs suggests that if we examine and scrutinise possibilities carefully. There is the potential to achieve something of lasting value. But we certainly should avoid making inflated claims that we can't back up at a later date.

Venus in Capricorn... Surprising levels of passion! Astrology for the week of January 18th, 2016

Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC 18th January 2016. The week begins with the emphasis still on the sign of Capricorn. Mercury though in the sign connects with Pluto which can create a tremendous amount of intensity. Our thoughts and even our nervous systems can be that much more revved up. The secret is going to be in not taking ourselves too seriously and especially with both squaring to the unpredictable energies of Uranus. Broadly this battle between orthodoxy and rebellion goes on until the end of the month. Choosing our words carefully will help, especially with Mercury still twisting backwards.

Venus and Jupiter also square. This is for the first half of the week and can tempt us into promising more than we can realistically deliver or going overboard with the charm. We may also find ourselves tempted to splash out on things which will not have lasting value.

Mars continues in the powerful sign of Scorpio, and like last week continues to Trine with Neptune. Extra subtlety and self-sacrifice will be greatly appreciated, though we need to stay aware of our motives.

The Sun moves into Aquarius on Thursday. The sign of friendship and of collective hopes and wishes. This may see a revival of social contact especially if energy has been lower in the first weeks of the year or practicalities have dominated. He is though opposed by the Full Moon in Leo on Sunday, suggesting time management is key, as will looking after those associations which are really important. Friends are nice, but quality is always better than quantity.

Finally, Venus moves into Capricorn on Sunday too. Here she is very earthy and sensual, good for business but may also evoke some surprising levels of passion.
