Throughout this year Pluto opposes the Black Sun. We need to take note. The Black Sun refers to the heliocentric aphelion of the Earth: the point from the Sun’s perspective, when the Earth is furthest away.
Yesterday Mercury stationed direct, bringing an end to its retrograde passage through Scorpio which began on21st October. Hopefully we have used this time to clear the air, correct misunderstandings and bring into the light of day those things kept secret for fear of their impact upon our daily lives

Mercury is retrograde between 9th April and 3rd May 2017 (GMT). Beginning in grounded and consistent Taurus and retreating into impulsive and instinctual Aries on 20th April, it highlights where we set anchor and strive to remain when in fact we should move on through.
This total solar eclipse occurs at 9:47 a.m. GMT on 20th March in the final degree of the zodiac. An eclipse here speaks of completion on a grand scale. Things within reach that we failed to grasp disappear; opportunities postponed for a ‘better time’ dissolve; riches hoarded lose their worth.
A couple of weeks ago we encountered a powerful ‘portal’ to divine wisdom in the form of a conjunction between the Black Sun and Black Moon Lilith, the latter of which was travelling retrograde through Cancer.
Throughout the coming week Mars, Saturn and Neptune ask to what extent do we live according to our insight, wisdom and fundamental beliefs? In other words, how far does our exterior life reflect our inner life and vice versa?
27th May sees Mars retrograde back into Scorpio where it remains until 2nd August, fortifying our determination to leave no stone unturned when it comes to self-knowledge and the on-going evolution of consciousness. This Mars is a force to be reckoned with.
The Moon is full in the 3rd degree of Scorpio at 5:25 UT. Occurring while Venus, Uranus and Eris form a conjunction in Aries, it reminds us of the power of love to see us through darkness and its iconoclastic role in these changing times.
