The Sun at 8 degrees Capricorn is conjunct Mercury at 1:28 am Sunday. This is a key point in the economic cycle (as are all the conjunctions between Sun, Mercury and Venus) so keep an eye peeled for stock market moves and hot sectors. Since this is in Capricorn, the sign of both Big Business and of government, those areas should feel the biggest impact. The Sun opposes Jupiter a week later, which may mean that gold (Sun) hits a correction point.
Mercury at 8 degrees 39′ Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries at 3:48 am Sunday. This is followed by the Sun square Uranus at 12:05 am Monday. Mercury-Uranus squares are generally bad for buying electronic or mechanical items; it may mean that repairs are called for on items you already have. To avoid accidents, avoid doing things on impulse – the key word there is impulse. Think what to do, use your signals, communicate your intentions. You might have some brainstorms, but your thoughts tend to be chaotic and so you benefit from writing down what needs to be done, step by step. Your nerves may also be jittery; skip the second cup of java. This is followed by the Sun’s hunger for change. You may change your routine, shake yourself out of a rut. Once I got on a plane under this transit, for a quick weekend trip. You need a change of scene instead of staring at the same four walls. Instead of channel surfing or web surfing, try visiting a museum show or gallery. Pick up a magazine you never heard of before about a subject you might not be familiar with. At the same time, expect the unexpected.
Mars at 11 degrees Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn at 8:16 pm Monday. If the Uranus squares are not channeled into constructive changes (see above) then this Mars-Pluto square may blast you out of your cozy cocoon. Mars and Pluto together are such an explosive combo, it’s like dynamite plus a nuclear bomb. Avoid dangerous places or hi-energy crowds. There can be ego conflicts or power struggles between business partners or marital partners. Ambition or control issues may be a sticking point. On the plus side, you can harness this energy to get a lot of work done, like cleaning out a garage or demolishing a building. You might also conceive a child if you have not been able to before.
Mercury is conjunct Pluto at 11 degrees Capricorn at 6:24 am Tuesday, and soon squares Mars in Libra at 9:59 am Tuesday. This is a lot like Mars-Pluto, but more verbal. Mercury plus Mars in particular is argument or debate, although Pluto wants to totally demolish the opponent’s assumptions and data.
Then the Sun is conjunct Pluto (again at 11 degrees) at 1:54 am Wednesday, New Year’s Day. I am going to make a suggestion on how to harness the power of the conjunction with Pluto (PS – there is also a New Moon in Capricorn on New Year’s Day at 6:14 am on 10 degrees 57′ of Cappy). Pluto has many meanings but I want to focus on the one that helps you to take control of your own life. You might want to also harness the power of the 11 degree number by waiting for the clock to hit 11:11 on your digital readout, and making a very concentrated, very earnest wish for your life, for the year, or for the near future. The numbers lady, Glynis McCants talked about how an actress made a wish for herself to get a plum role when the clock read 11:11; she got the part and hit it big with that role.
The Sun at 12 degrees Capricorn squares Mars in Libra at 7:14 pm Thursday. After all the heavy-duty transits listed above, this one may seem like a piece of cake. All ya gotta do is get into the gym and work off your frustrations. Because the square can mean being blocked or hemmed in somehow, and you really wanna dig in your heels and fight back. This is good in an athletic contest, where one team is down 10 points at the half and comes back to win the game in the second half.
Mercury at 15 degrees Capricorn opposes Jupiter retrograde in Cancer at 2:11 am Friday. Fifteen degrees is the world degree in cardinal signs, so there might be rather significant news in the wind. Pay attention to the fine print in any deals, or have someone with you who will take care of that. A tendency to arrogance sometimes with this transit, so don’t come across as a know-it-all. A sense of humor really helps lighten the mood.

Venus at 4 degrees Leo squares Saturn in Scorpio at 1:03 pm July 1. Venus-Saturn squares may sound rather depressing, but they could force the issue of where one’s relationship is going – are you really serious about each other? – Are you ready to make the commitment? – Do you feel any responsibility toward or for each other? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you might formalize (Saturn again) your relationship with an engagement. If the aspect is not really strongly touching your natal pllanets, it may only mean that you gain some social polish (Venus) on top of your ambition (Saturn), or you receive some kind (Venus) advice from a mentor or older person (Saturn).
The Sun at 10 degrees Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn at 8:03 pm Monday. Sun-Pluto aspects have to do with demanding or losing control over one’s own life. The opposition has you (Sun) pointing to an opponent who you feel has or is trying to exert controls over your life, which you of course strongly resent! This can lead to power struggles. This can also, on a more subtle level, mean that you work to retrain your own mind of the unconscious or subconscious training that you received as a child, via pschotherapy or adopting mantras or affirmations, or Geotrans, or other similar self-improvement techniques. The Pluto figure can be either malignant or benign – it can be a Svengali type who assumes total control but helps you develop your talent to the nth degree. It can be a controlling husband or boyfriend who beats you and tears down your self-esteem. It can be a Hollywood studio, a mob boss, a super-corporation, a king or aristocrat – someone who has total authority over you. It can be a psychotherapist, as I mentioned before, who may be either a benign or malignant figure depending on his philosophy and skills.
The Sun at 12 degrees Cancer squares Uranus in Aries at 2:22 am Thursday, July 4. Sun-Uranus squares really resent being confined or ordered about. This Sun will challenge authority, get a petition together, rebel, toss a sabot (wooden shoe) into the mechanical works (the source of the word ‘sabotage’), and in general Fight City Hall, or if you prefer, fight for lost causes – the only ones worth fighting for! Since Uranus can also be geniuses, this aspect can also signify the brilliant inventor, the person who is ahead of his time.
July Fourth, the national birthday, also features the Moon in chatty Gemini, which seems to forecast a lot of speechifying. Plans may also be changed or made with rapidity; perhaps the weather turns up better than the weatherman said, and so everyone decides to go to the beach, or the zoo, or something like that. People will be VERY spontaneous! Now, this Gemini Moon on top of that Sun-Uranus square, which follows a Sun-Pluto opposition earlier this week, may mean some impromptu speeches to rally the crowd to march against something. It may mean a spontaneous demonstration. It may mean even a spontaneous riot, although we don’t seem to have a Mars tied into this energy to bring that about. But people will feel like they won’t stand for bullying from authorities any more.
The Moon is conjunct Mars in Gemini at 8:30 am Saturday, followed by Moon conjunct Jupiter in Cancer at 11:21 pm. Mars with Jupiter can bring risk-taking such as in the form of daredevil stuff or gambling or whatever. With the Moon, that just intensifies that urge. So if you have a little money that you will not miss, OK, spend a night at the bingo hall or buy a lottery tickee. Good luck!

Reminder: Venus is in Pisces now.
The Sun in Capricorn squares Saturn at 29 degrees Libra at 4:19 pm Thursday. A likely time for mass frustration, although it can result in a more focused drive to achieve a particular goal. Not a good time to start a new venture, but it does present challenges if you like that kind of thing.
Venus in Pisces sextiles Pluto at 8 degrees Capricorn at 3:32 pm Friday. This Venus-Pluto sextile could indicate a good opportunity to obtain loan approval, or increases in cash payouts. On a personal level, you could get a lot better acquainted with a special someone.
The Sun enters humanity-loving Aquarius on January 20 at 11:10 am. People with the Sun in Aquarius express an appreciation of the special gifts of everyone they meet. Aquarians are awed by technology, and have a great faith that mankind will continue to progress.
The Sun in Aquarius squares Uranus at 1 degree Aries at 8:20 pm Saturday. You might see upsets in sports events or in the political scene. While Uranus often signifies falls or accidents, the kinds of falls with the Sun involved probably will not result in broken bones. Uranus specializes in knocking those with pretensions of grandeur flat on their fannies.
Looking ahead: Mars will have its Retrograde Station on Jan. 23 at 23 degrees Virgo. Not a misprint; 23 and 23 is the key number.

The Moon, exalted in Taurus, is conjunct Jupiter at 4 degrees Taurus at 1:07 am Sunday. What a wonderful opportunity for night owls especially, but anyone can light a candle and make a wish for their fondest desire late the night before. You can put your case to others with positive results, especially with women (so this is actually a fine time to propose if you are involved with someone). If this aspect affects your fourth house, it favors moves to a new residence.
The Moon trines powerful Pluto at 6 degrees Capricorn at 5:22 am Sunday. Whenever I see the Moon and Pluto, I think, “silver charm” because the Moon rules silver, and Pluto is power objects and overcoming the perceived limitations (power vs. powerlessness) of one’s life. Your emotions may be very intense, difficult to handle; but at the same time perhaps you need the release of music, art or journaling or whatever works for you.
The Sun in Cancer squares Uranus at 4 degrees Aries at 6:13 am Sunday. What an eventful morning, astrologically speaking. This aspect will shake you out of your rut, like it or not. Go ahead and break your routine, take a different route home, try a new restaurant. Just be advised that Uranus can cause accidents whether from distraction or whatever, so do drive defensively and alertly. If upset (related to the Moon-Pluto trine above), it is best NOT to drive at all.
We have a New Moon Friday, July 1, at 4:54 am, at 9 degrees, 12 minutes of Cancer. This is a partial Solar Eclipse, the partner to the total lunar eclipse of June 15 at 24 degrees Sag. The Moon is conjunct Sun of course, and square Saturn in Libra. This may be a tough time for many of us, not only because of the square to Saturn but because the last major aspect was Moon opposite Pluto. So the powers that be are inclined to say no, no and no. Minnesota is threatening to shut down government offices in a standoff over the budget, and this eclipse does not bode well for a last-minute compromise. I regret I do not have any chart for the state, so I have no idea of the specifics of the transits.
Mercury enters Leo at 1:38 am Saturday. Mercury in Leo is quite a persuasive speaker, with the combination of Mercury (ruling the mind) and Leo (ruling the heart). This Leo may be a fine leader in politics or the military, being well suited to command. You may write (and perform) speeches or plays, or teach, or emcee. The only drawback is sometimes a tendency to boast and brag — not that you don’t have anything worth bragging about, but it is just unseemly. Useful in a job interview, though.
The Sun in Cancer squares Saturn at 10 degrees Libra at 8:17 pm Saturday. Sun square Saturn symbolizes frustrations and not being able to exert one’s will in a given situation. Patience, in patience one possesses one’s soul, to coin a phrase. I know, we all want everything now, but some things just need time to germinate and grown to the point where we can harvest them. This aspect is preceded by 22 minutes by a Moon-Mercury conjunction, meaning that some of us will probably ask a favor of a friend or relative. Well, with Saturn square the Sun, it is ‘no can do.’ Wait for a better opportunity to ask your favor. I think that some of us will be dealing with separations and endings, but it is only for a blink in time.
Looking ahead to the long holiday weekend, the Moon is in Leo on the third and Fourth, expressing the fun of fireworks and parades and any events oriented towards the children in the family. On the Fourth, Venus enters Cancer in the wee hours, enhancing the love of country, home and family. We will enjoy family outings and feel a tug at the heartstrings when the flag passes by in a parade. Venus in Cancer also suggests that many of us will just stay at home, cocooning inside our beloved homes (if we still have one after these last few years of a disastrous mortgage situation and foreclosures). Venus trines Neptune, affirming our hopes for upholding the best ideals that this country has ever embraced.
The Sun in Sag squares Uranus mid-morning on Monday; this can lead to arguments or accidents due to impatience. However, your urge to break out of a rut is ‘good thing’ because you can luck onto some new opportunities. Shake up your life in less stressful ways by taking a different route on your commute, or stopping in at a shop or gallery you have been curious about.
Venus in Sag trines Mars in Leo on Thursday morning. Assertiveness combined with diplomacy is rewarded. Try a little Leo charm, and if you don’t have any, fake it. Also relationships between men and women are harmonious; even breakups are amicable. Just discuss whatever issues you have in an adult manner instead of playing games. And Venus later squares Uranus on Saturday night. Ouch, this may push some couples into splitsville if they are not careful. But it can also mean impulse spending, or if you have a lucky transit, a nice windfall.
Mars will make a retrograde station next Sunday, Dec. 20 at 8:27 am. It will be at 19 degrees 42 minutes of Leo.
