Neptune’s ethereal presence is everywhere this week. Creating ghostly shadows, strange mirages and nuances. Mercury is retro too – so everyone is lost in the maze, trying to find a way through. It’s mystical and mysterious – also a little maddening…. Michelangelo was the master of ecstacy of agony and in this cosmos we experience the feeling side of life that overwhelms us. It is the magic of a time like this – when linear thinking fails and a miracle appears.
Simply put, Nick Clegg (Capricorn with Pluto currently close to his Sun) was always in a danger zone now – he needs a total transformation. Similarly, Ed Milliband with Pluto’s presence on his midheaven – it’s time for a re-think on his aims and goals in life. Whilst David Cameron has just had his Jupiter return, returning the feel-good-factor and also to his Moon so he’s on top of the world right now.
A year ago I was invited on Andrew Neil’s Politics Today Show and my prediction for the European election was more accurate than the pollsters then. I called David Cameron the winner of the General Election then.

Astro-genetics…. here’s how they work. Planets in particular signs repeat in families. The royals used to be very Leo – The Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne. Since Diana (Sun sign Cancer) the emphasis has changed from the lion to the crab. Diana gave birth to William (Sun and Moon in Cancer) who married Kate (Moon in Cancer) who gave birth to Prince George (Sun in Cancer) and now to the new royal Princess (Cancer rising). Another repeat is the new babe’s Sun in Taurus like the Queen. So we can expect that Taurean sense of loyalty and the Cancerian sensitivity. Yet this babe has the Moon in Libra picking up a more volatile vibe from the outer planets. You need to be made of strong stuff to be a royal – and she is! Brother George may experience a touch of sibling rivalry – he currently has Saturn on his Venus which puts his star temporarily in the shade. Meanwhile the new Princess is a Daddy’s girl with her Mars on his Venus in Taurus (incidentally Diana’s was here too). It all means the royals have the same adjustments to make as any family with a new addition but the astro-fit sticks them together like glue.
April ends with an elevated Sun/Neptune connection. A divine download, a little elixir, a starburst of inspiration…..
Aries New Moon on the 18th is a breath of fresh Spring air… a much needed boost of positive energy. Next week’s pulse between Mercury and Mars is another call to action, to get things moving.
Whenever Venus and Saturn cross paths it’s like a mini reality check. Issues to do with relationships surface, our attachments or detachments are all-important!
It’s a moment to look at the relationships that have meant a great deal to you. Even if they have ‘ended’ they have merely changed shape. For some it’s a time of assessing the kind of glue that sticks people together, will it stand up to the challenges of the future?
The power of the cosmic configurations that have been constellated since the total eclipse on March 20 have been hanging overhead and continue until we are clear of Wednesday April 8. In some cases a huge turn of events has demolished and devastated – in others a promise of dances to come illuminates. Either way it has and continues to be a time of extremes.
Easter is all about darkness and light, death and re-birth and the cosmos is throwing us the kind of aspects that mirror this dramatic edge. An eclipsed Full Moon is plugging into Uranus and Pluto so it’s a fasten your seat belts kind of a week.
It’s all downloading at once – this is a cosmically packed week which is super-charged with change. How we think, how we relate to people, what we are doing with our lives, where we go, what we want, value and desire will all be affected by the final Uranus-Pluto square, the total solar eclipse and the Spring Equinox. It is an opportunity to align with our true soul purpose and discard that which is no longer important.
It’s kind of an action thriller this week, the cosmos is designed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Wednesday is the peak moment for triggering wild and unruly behaviour and a resultant back-lash. As Mars and Uranus join in Aries we’re all feeling the heat and then the deepening of the drama as Mars moves to clash with control freak Pluto in Capricorn. It’s certainly a time to resolve issues that have been simmering for a long while. In fact, it’s impossible to keep the lid on any longer.
