Change! But Be A Pioneer: Today is Full Moon, July 13 2022

Today’s full moon in Capricorn casts a baleful glow on our world.

The Moon is in its detriment in the Goat and is relatively close to the undermining Pluto in the 2nd house of this chart set for London. Financially, economically and politically this is a very difficult and trying time for all, and especially the British people.

The Sun and Moon are in good aspect to Uranus and the Moon’s North Node in a Taurus 6th house. There is a karmic influence here and the possibility of sudden changes economically, financially and in the British nation’s health and working practices, spurred on, it might seem, by the general public who are showing increasing signs of losing faith in the status quo. It is clearly time for change; yet the British, and all of us, should be mindful about what we wish for.

Later this month, Mars conjoins with Uranus and the North Node in Taurus and this suggests the period at end of July and beginning of August is going to see much sudden, surprising activity in financial markets and world economies. Ultimately, all of this might well be for the benefit of everyone – in the long run, although it might not seem that way at the time.

Jupiter is ruler of this chart, and ruler of the 4th house of the homeland, is found in an Aries 5th house. For the British at least this suggests that they can make positive and creative change right now if they are pioneering enough. Private enterprise, as opposed to state control, is always the best remedy for humanity to dig itself out of a whole, as are the promotion of the family – always the best organic buffer against a cruel world.

Astrology: Summer Ingress 2022 – Change Is Afoot

This chart, set for the exact time of the Northern Solstice in London and entry into the first point of Cancer, is indicative of sudden change, particularly financial, economic and political.

The Taurus MC or midheaven is conjunct the Moon’s North Node and Uranus: aspirations are going to be jolted and our security affected, not only in Great Britain but worldwide. So keep your eyes on the stock markets, currencies and banking sectors, they are all liable to remain unstable. This will likely involve a forced change in philosophy and long distance travel plans, making us dig deeper for resources over the summer period.

Venus is also conjunct the so called Demon Star, Algol. in the 9th house, warning us not to be over indulgent, particularly in anything physical or practical, lest something comes back to bite us. Caution when it comes to financial considerations and travel are always a good idea.

On a more positive note, the Moon conjoining Jupiter in Aries in the 8th house, brings hope of a softer, more beneficial landing financially, implying the world we inherit soon is going to have certain advantages for humanity.

For Great Britain, this chart has Virgo rising, with the chart ruler Mercury being well placed in its own sign of Gemini in the 10th house. Matters regarding health, work and communication will continue to be prominent, with possible resolutions happening, as Mercury is well aspected to Jupiter and the Moon, as well as being quite close to the fixed star Aldebaran, hinting that we might well see more than one individual or group becoming more outspoken about certain situations.

Uh Oh… May 16 Full Moon – Be Prepared

This chart, set for London (and therefore Great Britain) is a bit of humdinger.

I don’t often sensationalise but this is a really tense and trying looking chart, with the Sun/Moon falling exactly on the ascendant/descendant, and with the sun very close also to Algol – the demon star – in a Taurus first house, along with revolutionary Uranus and the North Node, insisting that we look at ourselves realistically, whilst trying to refrain from extremes.

Things are really coming home to roost right now and change is afoot which may seem difficult to deal with, especially with Moon conjunct the South Node – we really do have to learn to let go emotionally.

Epoch Making Times

And for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we are living in pretty epoch making times, so watch out – but this also goes for the world too. The activated and very tense Taurus/Scorpio axis is likely to highlight and bring about drastic changes in financial markets and the world economy around now.

Added to that, the Sun and Moon are square to Saturn in Aquarius in the 10th house. There are likely challenges and counter challenges to authority and leadership and in diplomatic circles too, but with Mercury now retrograde in Gemini, beware also of rumours of wars and other disasters, economic or otherwise – they may not be true, or, we may only find about what really went on when Mercury turns direct next month.

Something Has To Give?

Something has got to give around now, with all this fixed sign activity and racking up of tension to a crescendo.

There is also an emotionally volatile Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces in the 11th house, also aspecting the Sun/Moon, and acting almost like a pressure valve release. We may see a very difficult, emotional event occur which will affect the general public, but make sure to read all sources of information.

Drastic Action

For Britain (London) the midheaven is conjunct awful Pluto too, only undermining the government and other authorities, which may prompt them into drastic action.

And with Uranus also at 15 degrees Taurus in the first house, these are changeful times indeed for Great Britain, and we should expect sudden events.

Saving Grace?

The only saving grace in this chart is the 12th house Jupiter in Aries, along with Venus conjunct Chiron. We are probably going to have to dig deep, especially in Britain around this period, but so long as we have confidence in ourselves and look forward to new beginnings we can get through most eventualities. We are likely going to feel wounded to some degree, especially within ourselves and in relating to others an even as nations, but it will be an important lesson to learn, one which can help other peoples in the future.

I also drew a three card spread for the May 16 Full Moon, which cast an alternative light upon possible events. If we are broadminded, with courage and confidence, I think we can get through any crisis. There will be new opportunities emerging in the background which can result in overcoming problems and create the circumstances for new relationships and agreements which will put us in a much better place than we are at present.

I certainly hope the latter is the case, but we may have to experience a moment of shock first.

Tarot Zodiac Spread: The Future of Britain 2022-2027

I asked for insight into the next five years in Britain. Spread used was the 1JJ Swiss Tarot.

Despite what Britain has become, it looks as though she will play a leading role in the world in the near future. There will be stronger, but fairer leadership. There will be a new beginning in diplomatic affairs, based more on ethics and the increasing involvement of younger people.

The British economy will be able to reinvent itself in ways we can’t even dream about at present. There will be far reaching changes in investments and much overseas development, financially. Much can be attained.

The country’s travel infrastructure will be reassessed, weighing up the true needs of the people. The media too will change, with a much more balanced content. The education system will also change significantly too, with much home schooling, which may become the norm.

Higher education could morph into areas like personal growth, rather than vocational degrees. The judicial system is also likely to switch to a more ethical approach based upon spirituality and ancient traditions. Long distance travel issues will be eased, with more emphasis upon water or ocean travel.

The people will become more discerning, judgemental, and will be able to communicate their opinions more easily. The government, in response to this, will seek a partnership with the people and vice versa, both becoming the same animal in effect, without the present lack of trust.

The country will become much more energetic and sportive, particularly amongst the young, with a move away from corporate sport, and towards the involvement of everyone at a more amateur level. This will be a significant achievement. At a societal level, there will be more emphasis on groups and societies that aid personal growth, probably from some spiritual perspective. The House of Commons and Lords, and regional councils, are very likely to be much reduced in size in function, and what remains will steer the course of the nation much more ethically than at present.

The health of the nation will become much more stabilised, with the emphasis moving to accentuating the positive. Similarly, the workforce will become much strengthened, with greater opportunity to ‘do your own thing’. The mental health of the nation, too, will have been much alleviated through a support network to help those who have been affected, particularly over the last two years but also in general. The idea of imprisonment will be reassessed.

Although the Britain of 2027 will still be very much a work in progress, it will be clear by then that the country, and indeed the world, will be going along a very different path.

March 20 Vernal Equinox @ 3:33:33 PM GMT – Plus Tarot Insight of Spring Quarter

An interesting time.

I was more than a little surprised at the time of the Vernal Equinox this year, the First Point of Aries, or the first moment of spring: 3:33:33 PM GMT (set for London).

Even on the 24 hour clock it is 15:33:33, the 1 and the 5 adding up to 6 which is two threes. The ‘coincidences’ in the numbers of late have been off the scale – but what does it all mean? I keep seeing 11:11 all the time too.

The chart is also interesting. The MC is exactly conjunct the North Node in Taurus, hinting that the aspirations of the United Kingdom, at least, are heading in ‘right’ karmic direction. The Spring Quarter will see Britain (and hopefully its ‘government’) looking to be more practicable, out in the garden, securing financial down to earth issues as best it can. It is where our focus should be.

The Sun is cusping the eight house, therefore putting emphasis on shared securities and inheritances. Karmically, we should be getting back some of the stuff we are owed, but we also need to read the finer detail.

The ruler of the chart, Mercury, is conjunct Jupiter in the seventh house of diplomacy and enemies. This actually bodes well for the next three months in regard to diplomatic negotiations, and treaties, with a fair chance of success.

A Virgo ascendant means that health and work will be strongly featured. The sixth house of the nations health and work is a little problematic. In this house there is a Venus Mars conjunction which is square Uranus in the ninth house. There will be shocks in regard to health information, some sudden changes too, perhaps, although Saturn’s presence here in its own sign may help to bring some stability and realism as well.

And finally, a void of course Moon indicates there will be delays, perhaps some quite frustrating ones. This Moon inconjunct the Sun means the ‘government’ may still not be wholly transparent about certain financial issues (pensions, investments etc) to begin with in this period, whilst the people (Moon) will want to have clarity of information sooner than it is forthcoming. (void of course Moon in second house on cusp of third house).

I believe this 7 Day Week spread largely backs up the above astrology.

8 of Cups overall, in Sun position: Second decanate of Pisces ruled by the Moon; an overall sense of emotional achievement, having got through this.

10 of Coins in Moon position: Third decanate of Virgo ruled by Venus; the people will feel a sense of relief that something has been completed, or taken down – a gathering, in preparation for something new.

Strength card in the Mars position: A time when positive action will reap many benefits in a short space of time, but beware of some of the consequences.

Two of Swords in Mercury position: Dilemmas in media, in short distance travel too (transport, buses, the tube etc), but which narrative do you believe? Dilemmas in health and work related issues too. Use discernment.

The Fool in the Jupiter position: Longer distance travel issues should become a lot easier, with many areas open for discussion. A blank piece of paper. A good time to look around for that higher education course too, or seek fundamental spirituality, or philsosophy.

Five of Cups in Venus position: The second decanate of Scorpio ruled by Jupiter; changes in emotional relationships will be discomforting temporarily, but probably needed.

Eight of Wands in Saturn position: The second decanate of Sagittarius ruled by Mars; by the end of the quarter around June, there will be a sense of achievement, having got somewhere, and having done it through our own volition.
