On 9th April Venus conjuncts Neptune casting a very romantic hue around your relationships. Jupiter stations retrograde on 10th April – watch all the antics around higher education and how the law will come down hard. Mercury square Pluto trine North Nodes of the Moon, sextiles South Nodes of the moon – a very strong aspect asking us how transforming our thinking can get us on the path of our true destiny. Mercury is out of its shadow on 17th April.
The Moon is in Libra for the 2nd time in a row as a Full Moon. It is at a critical degree of 29 degrees Libra. This tells us that all things Libran are coming to a climax and conclusion. Libra rules relationships and friendships, our social graces, the law, the rules that are law and beauty.
Sabian Symbol for 30 degrees of Libra is “3 mounds of knowledge”, refers to direct experience with society, relationships and cultural values (1). What have I learned especially as it relates to relationships and friendships? Pluto stations retrograde on 24th April followed by Saturn stationing retrograde on 30th April. Time to assimilate all the ‘wake up’ and ‘shake up’ calls over the past few months. A day we take the decision to let go of obligations that belong in the past and look to the obligations we ‘do’ want to take onboard. Happy Easter on 21st April!!!!

ARIES– Your 7th house of relationships has you asking: ‘what does this relationship provide me in terms of support’.

February 2019 Astrology and Astronomy – Love is in the air!
On Feb 1 2019 we have a very volatile Mars square Pluto and Sun conjunct Mercury aspect. This could portend major takeovers in the collective and our individual lives. Take great care with your actions and words. Pick your battles- use this as your mantra. The New Moon is at 15 degrees 45 minutes of Aquarius at 1:04 pm PST. It is also the Chinese New Year of the Earth Pig! A great new start for all Aquarians! This is so close to Groundhog Day which marks the mid-point of the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox- watch the ‘movie’ Groundhog Day with Bill Murray- it may help you understand things as February unfolds- we may see our shadow. Déjà vu could manifest with an emphasis on developing and acknowledging our intuition and higher selves with Saturn sextile Neptune exactly. Uranus shakes things up with the nodes connection. Mercury going into Pisces on Feb 10 is a heads up for the Mercury retrograde in March where we will learn to accept our intuition and develop our higher selves. Valentines day sees a love sextile, opportunities for a higher love and compassion. Mars entering Taurus territory (where Uranus will sit for 7 years, March onwards!) intuitive flashes of insight will start popping up. Feb 12 Mars will conjunct Uranus- slow down and know that this is high octane energy. The Full, Super Moon is at 0 degrees 42 minutes of Virgo @ 7:54am PST- an ending and a new start for all Virgos! Powerful time with Pluto conjunct the south nodes of the moon asking us all to ‘finally’ let go…of the past. Venus conjunct Saturn suggests putting our money to work, maybe a shortage of money. Venus conjunct Pluto, close to the south nodes of ‘letting go’- old love/money/values go…new love/money/values come in.
In the night sky on Feb 1 we have the waning crescent Moon close by to Saturn, Venus is highlighted with Saturn then Pluto on Feb 18 and 23 respectively and Feb 27 in the early morning sky you can see the Moon and Jupiter together. Enjoy!
Total Eclipse Leo and the Royal Family Astrological Update
Follow me on Instagram and Facebook @elpisastrology
Time stamp for Royal Family update is 12:56
This is the last Leo eclipse in this series of eclipses between Leo and Aquarius…yet, it is at the first degree of Leo. This suggests a new beginning even though this Total Eclipse is a Full Moon in Leo- which would normally mean endings. Not that those aren’t going to happen. I feel this is about a breakout moment for those reaching for the brass ring. You could also feel the effects 6 months prior to 20 Jan 2019- so, July 2018. Leo asks us to express our creative, authentic self with joy and love. For those not willing to pay attention to the nudges they’ve been receiving since last year? Well, the Universe will usher in the changes for you – this is backed up with the unexpected, Uranus energy which will also speed things up! You could feel all excited and jittery at the same time. Plan for some downtime to process what is pinging inside you. Jupiter square Neptune has us doubting ourselves and wondering if you can trust. The key is to trust the universe, your inner satellite guidance but reach out to others you trust to confirm.
For the British Royal Family both Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth have major once in a life time transits involving Uranus and Pluto throughout 2019. Prince Charles’ Ascendant is conjunct the Total Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on 20 Jan 2019, putting him front and center in 2019. They both have major effects on their respective North Nodes of the Moon with regards to their future destiny. Read as: Future Destiny of the Monarchy and Royal Family. Duchess Meagan will give birth in March 2019, I predict 21 March 2019. Venus conjunct Jupiter in the early morning sky, look Southeast.

There is a big influence of Earth signs in 2019 (and 2020) asking us to ground ourselves, literally have contact with the earth to heal. Be purposeful in your actions and know that planning step by step is okay as it leads to manifestation of your dreams, hopes and wishes. The Mercury retrogrades will be in water signs asking all of us to tune into our intuition before speaking or communicating.
There are 5 eclipses in 2019. Three in Capricorn- Jan/July/Dec 2019, one in Leo- Jan 2019, and one in Cancer- July 2019. Capricorn leads the pack with regards to starting a new life a new ‘you’ followed by Cancer. This is Leo’s and Aquarius) final chance this year to tidy up their life and get on their destined, authentic path of ‘self’.
Jupiter in its home sign of Sagittarius till Dec 2019 imbues us all with optimism, inspiration and a real feeling that dreams can come true. Watch the risks- make them calculated! The three Jupiter Neptune squares have us questioning our faith and beliefs- listening to our inner selves and ‘believing’ will be important this year for all of us.
