The Major Transits of 2018

by Alison Price

The Major Transits of 2018

The planets continuously move through the zodiac. As they do so they engage in angular patterns with each other.

Some connections are positive and may foster growth and harmony whereas others are a challenge and create the catalyst for changes as yet to be made. Others are neutral and can go either way. It depends.

Transits themselves are neither good nor bad but the combination of the energies of the two planets in an aspect with each other makes the dialogue (the aspect) between those two spheres work as a team for the life of the transit.

Whether a particular transit will be good for you as an individual will depend on the placement of the planets in your unique birth chart.

Major transits are any one of the five Ptolemaic aspects or the sign ingresses of heavy superior planets. As major transits develop and unfold over several weeks, months and sometimes years they shape the background message for the rest of a horoscope reading.

Often a transit will start, fade and then return, up to five exact times, before the full impact has passed. Changes made under a major transit will remain.

These slow transits are the markers of general shifts through the solar system. They are like the development of life’s journey and the cosmic trends that are unfurling.

To be in tune with the ebb and flow of major transits each year is a good way to use astrology in your daily life.

 

Saturn enters Capricorn

The ringed planet Saturn returned to its tradition home sign of Capricorn the sea goat in the last few days of 2017. This planet strives to stabilize the bedrock in our lives.

This position is closely related to governments and the establishment of solid foundations upon which to build our future lives.

During the two and a quarter year period until March 2020 as Saturn moves through Capricorn you can expect conservation, restrictions and boundaries to be put in place.

Many people will feel pigeon-holed in dead-end jobs and careers for which they may not be suited. The challenge now is to get the formal education and take courses which will allow you to rise to the heights to which you strive in your career. Saturn gives you what you deserve and no more. There will be no easy way or

During the two and a quarter year period until March 2020 as Saturn moves through Capricorn you can expect conservation, restrictions and boundaries to be put in place.

Many people will feel pigeon-holed in dead-end jobs and careers for which they may not be suited. The challenge now is to get the formal education and take courses which will allow you to rise to the heights to which you strive in your career.

Saturn gives you what you deserve and no more. There will be no easy way or shortcuts up the career ladder as Saturn transits Capricorn. Only concentrated and steady progress will bring you the rewards that you deserve.

The energy of this transit will be felt by anyone with planets in Capricorn or planets in the early degrees of the three other cardinal signs which are Aries, Cancer and Libra.


Jupiter sextile Pluto

(January 7 to January 25 and September 5 to September 17)

As Jupiter forms a harmonious aspect to Pluto in January and September it creates two power surge times for the year. As Pluto disposes Jupiter it means he gives his support willingly to the planet of luck.

This is a good time to look forward and take a chance. There may be hidden backing available for you now. Sound judgment and good opportunities will appear.

This aspect will mainly affect Scorpio and Capricorn but the signs Taurus, Cancer, Virgo and Pisces will benefit as well.


Uranus enters Taurus

(May 15th)

In mid-May Uranus will enter Taurus for a seven-year stretch that lasts until 2025. This brings the radical planet some stability as the earthy fixed nature or Taurus will dampen the random and unexpectedness of Uranus.

During this transit, you can expect to see changes in the way finances flow. The monetary system will likely become more high-tech as banks and virtual currencies drive the change to a more equitable system that will benefit the man in the street and disenfranchised individuals.

This once in a lifetime ingress will particularly affect all Taureans and those people with planets in the early degrees of Virgo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

As Uranus enters Taurus it is the last major planet to complete the shift towards the passive elements as now Pluto, Uranus, and Saturn are in earth and Neptune and Jupiter are in water signs.

Read more here.


Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces

(May 25 to June 13 and August 11 to August 25)

Jupiter moves closer to the trine to Neptune in its home of Pisces the fish. This aspect brings together the powerful Piscean planets because Jupiter is the old traditional ruler of Pisces and Neptune the new modern ruler.

The trine is a beneficial connection and shows there will be harmony and support for both Jupiter and Neptune related things now.

During this period you can expect spiritual enlightenment, religious exploration, appreciation or arts and cultures, and tolerance for diversity and metaphysical systems. More and more people will take up esoteric practices or at least become aware of them going on around.

This positive fluid transit will mainly affect Pisces and the other water signs of Cancer and Scorpio, and to a lesser extent the signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Saturn in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus

(August 21 to September 21)

As Saturn enters Capricorn it will soon trine the radical planet Uranus for the second time (the first contact was back in 2017) but this time Saturn is retrograde and Uranus is in its new sign of Taurus.

This is a combination of old meets new and the two energies of these strong planets will be worked out over time.

Technology will continue to be developed perhaps with the senior age groups being the main focus.

As this is the second connection of a three-part transit there still is time for changes to be made to projects and relationships that started last year. The concrete is not yet set so to speak.

There will be ease of stringent rules as the borders are tested for many. On a personal note, if you have been walked over by other people or been taken for granted, now is the time you will draw the line and halt further incursions.

This major transit will particularly affect Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and have a similar influence on Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Jupiter enters Sagittarius

(November 8)

Now the largest planet in the solar system Jupiter returns to its home sign of Sagittarius the archer in early November. This transit promises a twelve-month adventure and expansion period for many.

Travel, eco-tourism and multi-cultural activities will be big now. Jupiter is the planet that encourages us to lift our eyes to the horizon and dream big.

We are inclined to reach for what we want and there is bounty around. The challenge can be overindulgence or taking more than you need or can use.

This fiery positive transit will add excitement for all Sagittarians and will invigorate Aries and Leo as well.

Overdoing it with excessive behavior will be a challenge for Gemini’s and to a lesser extent for Virgo and Pisces.

Jupiter Trine Uranus – Get Fired Up!

by Alison Price

We have experienced several challenging planetary placements in recent years. I am of course referring to the Uranus Pluto square which has had astrologers and laymen alike buzzing with excitement.

Enter the Jupiter Uranus fire trine.

Whilst it is typical that we have both easy and challenging aspects within the zodiac at any one time, it is the individual and combined mixture of flow and resistance between the planets making the aspects that shape our lives.

That Uranus appears in both aspects (square Pluto and trine Jupiter) is telling. He seems to want to fit in and stick out at the same time.

We can live with this.


Aspects

One way to interpret an astrology chart is by a technique called aspects

Astrological aspects are the angular distances between the planets.

Every planet has a measurement in degrees with the other planets but only certain angles are noted in astrology charts.

By dividing the circle of 360 degrees by any whole numbers we get the aspect angles.

The Trine Aspect

If you divide 360 by 3 the result is 120 degrees (360/3=120) and this is the size of the trine aspect.

Two planets that are 120 degrees apart in the zodiac will be in trine to each other.

The aspect degree does not have to be exact but can be within 8 degrees (the orb) either side of 120.

So when the two planets become between 112 to 128 degrees apart they are considered to be trine to each other.

Transiting Jupiter Trine Uranus

 

When the slower planets like Jupiter and Uranus trine each other it is to be noted.

It is a phenomenon that only happens around every six years then there is a gap of seven years before the next trine.

The elemental sequence is fire, earth, air then water. With two trines in each element, one waxing and one waning trine. Then it slowly shifts into the following element.

The Jupiter Uranus Synodic Cycle

Jupiter and Uranus have a fourteen year synodic cycle.

This means they are together and Jupiter (which is quicker off the mark) races off around the zodiac as Uranus moves forward slowly. Jupiter will catch up with Uranus around fourteen years later.

In 2010 Jupiter was conjunct Uranus at zero Aries. They will next be conjunct in 2024 at twenty-one Taurus.

Looking further forward in 2037 22 Cancer direct and in 2038 at 20 Cancer retrograde.

This shows the conjunction moves around either 30 degrees when at the retrograde three pass conjunction, or around fifty-one to fifty-four degrees and fourteen years during a one pass direct conjunction.

Because there is a trine in place for such a long period, when planets pass through the other fire sign of Sagittarius, they will create a fire grand trine when they trine both Jupiter and Uranus.

The most frequent planet to do this is the Moon.

It will provide huge opportunities and original approaches to how you can use that planet in Sagittarius.

The trine from Jupiter offers good things in line with your natal planet being aspected and the trine from Uranus offers unique and up-to-date solutions which allow things to move forward with ease and flow.

Get fired up!

Fire is all about inspiration. It gets the juices flowing and everyone hot under the collar. It gets people raving about things and issues. It creates fireworks and burning issues. We can get incandescent and want to burst. We are filled with bright ideas and get excited about anything with fire in it like dragon’s breath, candlelight, torches, barbecues and camp fires.

Make the most of this special fire trine.


 

Podcast: The Mind Planets Mercury and Uranus

Unknown

There are two planets which are associated with your mind and thinking, Mercury and Uranus. Mercury shows your conscious mind, thinking processes and speech. Uranus shows your abstract thinking capability and how you understand concepts which is different for each of us.

Much of your individual thinking processes are expressed in the aspects in your chart between the two planet, Mercury an inner planet and Uranus an outer planet.

Listen to our podcast titled “The Mind Planets Mercury and Uranus” at Axis Astrology.com where I am on the show with my good friend Arwynne.

What your Outer Planet Signature says about Your Clients

 

by Alison Price

Not all business methods work for all businesses. Not all astrology business’ work the same for everyone either. What gels with for one practitioner will not necessarily pan out for another. Why? Because the two astrologers have different natal charts to each other.

To find satisfying work you have to be aligned with the energy potentials shown in your own chart. One way of tapping into this is by looking at your outer planet signature.


Your outer planet signature

We checked out your outer planet signature earlier this month. If you missed this piece you can find out how to find your strong outer planet here.

You have a number which represents the prominence of the outer planet in your chart.

So what? Well now you can see the difference in how each of the outer planets operate. Your strong outer planet will work for you over and above the two weaker outer planets in the following manner.

if the outer planet is not strong in the natal chart because say, the Moon dominates the chart, then the outer planetary energy will continue to operate the background of your life.

Mercury

The ideas is to engage your Mercury and get your conscious brain on side to bring the potentials of your prominent outer planet to bear on attracting the type of clients you want (and need) as shown by your natal chart.

We can’t all offer the same thing but if you work with the astrology rather than against it you will be more satisfied in your craft.

  • Intimate that you are a psychic or a medium (if you are)
  • Use a crystal ball as a prop
  • Say you can help clients find their vision

A Uranus signature: Clients suddenly appear

If you have a strong Uranus outer planet signature in your birth chart you can attract clients who:

  • Like astrology itself
  • Want to learn astrology
  • Are modern and up-to-date
  • Contact you at a group meeting
  • Use social networking
  • Like to be unusual

Uranus Half-Return

by Alison Price 

Planetary returns

All of the planets orbit the Sun. The length of time each one takes to make its journey is dependent on its distance from the centre of the solar system. The further out a planet is the longer the orbit.

Our Earth takes one year to come back to the same place on the zodiac. The infamous Saturn return occurs at the age of twenty-nine. Past Saturn is Uranus the ruler of Aquarius.

Uranus requires eighty-four earth years to make one complete Uranian year. It happens for us as octogenarians and is known as the Uranus return. A Uranus half return occurs when transiting Uranus gets half way round the Sun and a transiting Uranus opposition natal Uranus aspect is formed.

Unless an outer planet (Uranus, Neptune or Pluto) are connected to your Sun, Moon  Ascendant or prominent in other ways they can languish quietly tucked up in a house of your chart and you don’t know they are there. Then one day a transiting planetary configuration occurs and you are (in the case of Uranus) awakened.

Uranus transits

To experience a Uranus transit it is a bit like jarring your funny bone when you are suddenly made aware of its presence by the jangle down your arm and it is not funny at all!

The Uranus half return is humorously known as the “Harley Davidson aspect” because it occurs at time in life when guys throw up their lives, buy a hog and drive out towards a new and exciting future.

Key themes for this period are break-ups, break-downs and break-outs. Life in general can be difficult when Uranus opposes its natal place. By the early forties Uranus has travelled half way around your chart and now takes the stance of looking back at its birth position and the you ask yourself “Is that all I’ve done?” and “What happened to the younger me?”

Separation can occur now and it is often regarding your growing dissatisfaction with life. There is a feeling that “It’s now of never” and “I have to do this while I’m still young.” In this way some people may throw up things and not look back. They will revolutionize certain areas of their lives which are suggested by the natal placement of Uranus.

uranus-11625_960_720

Here is a story of this aspect at work:

A woman looks out from her porch and gazes on her garden. There is a large tree offering shade and her children play there. She and her husband sometimes sip lemonade sitting in the seat under the cool of the branches.

Life is good.

Then one day a storm breaks and the tree is suddenly struck by lightening. The dead fractured tree has to be broken up and removed from the property and along with it the protection and comfort it had provided for all those years.

Now the woman looks from her porch and is faced with a different landscape. New vistas have opened up. She can see down the valley and just make out the distant hills.

She asks herself “What is that twinkling in the distance? Why it is the old waterfall flowing down to the river below.”

The beauty spot had been there all along but she had forgotten about it. Perhaps she should take a walk there tomorrow and have a look…

The upside

When forecasting you have to always consider the upside of every transit even tough ones from the outers.


 

Uranus Stations Direct

Uranus Stations Direct in Aries

Once a year Uranus ends its annual retrograde period and begins to travel forward. As it moves off the station it will begin to pick up speed in direct motion and continue to move through the sign or the Ram.

Uranus is the planet of the unusual, the unexpected and where we are geniuses or is that genii?

Uranus rules Aquarius and brings the focus on Inspiration and innovation both of which will improve from now on as this planet’s energies come back on full force.

If you have been wrestling with an invention or radical idea you will find that the path will become clearer now.

Trends in technology and the internet will develop again.


 

The Sixth House and Herb Gardens

by Alison Price
Herb Garden #1

Uranus conjunct Neptune

During the Great Conjunction of 1991/93. Uranus conjoined Neptune for the first time in 170 years this time in Capricorn.

The astrology group I was a member of at that time in Cape Town had a particular meeting to celebrate the conjunction where we got into huddles depending on which house this conjunction occurred in our charts.


6th house

For me this was the 6th house and I joined with the other astrologers in the clutch who had the Uranus Neptune conjunction in their 6th houses as well.

This is not the most exciting house in a chart because it is about health, daily rituals, service and work.

They began discussing their work and how busy they were but it did not resonate with all the group members. Someone said they had started gardening.

Well that was the catalyst for an animated discussion as we all had taken up gardening recently. Then we got onto herbs.


First herb garden

I was able to tell them about the new herb garden I had recently designed and had constructed down a narrow strip of land behind our house and how herbs had suddenly had more meaning for me.

That year I had been growing and cooking with fresh herbs and making interesting meals for my family which was something I had never done before. It was glorious.

Small plants are shown in your 6th house.


Second herb garden

Herb Garden #2

We later moved to another house right on the Tropic of Capricorn (that is another story) and again the garden needed care.

My husband and his guys laid out a beautiful 10m x 10m square herb garden with appropriate circles and a birdbath in the middle.

At the time of construction, we made sure that money, yes hard cash, was buried below the concrete of the water feature. This was to provide for the garden. A nice touch.

I often wonder what those gardens look like today having had twenty-five and fifteen years to establish themselves.


 

What type of Astrologer are you?

by Alison Price

Know thyself

“Astrologer, know thyself.” –  Socrates.

Ancient words but as true today as the day they were penned (or is that quilled?)

As an astrologer you really do need to know your own natal chart well. Why not get a blank piece of paper and try to draw you chart from memory. This shows how well you know the ins and outs of your chart.

Self-knowledge is the key to understanding others. This includes the good, the bad and the ugly, warts and all.

I may not know you personally but I can hazard a guess about you:

  • You are your own person.
  • You are accomplished.
  • You read books.
  • You have lived.
  • You have laughed.
  • Your journey has brought you here.
  • You can do your own thing.
  • You have life experience.
  • You search for more.
  • You choose your own path.

You owe it to yourself to be the type of astrologer that sits well with your planetary indicators. We cannot all be the same type of astrologer.

Some explore their astrology through face-to-face consultations, video forecasts, supporting the astrology community via groups, writing or being the spokesman for astrology in the public eye.

In your astrology life you may want to:

  • Forecast and predict.
  • Write a Sun Sign column.
  • Understand your family better.
  • Host a blog.
  • Research an obscure technique.
  • Be a niche guru.
  • Curate the astrological community.
  • Support others.
  • Teach others.
  • Learn astrology for your own pleasure.
  • Write a book.
  • Get you name in lights.
  • Be rich.
  • Be famous.
  • Be on TV.
  • Live your life in tune with planetary cycles.
  • Understand yourself.
  • Understand others.
  • All of the above.
  • None of the above.

Chart indicators for an astrologer

Your natal chart gives clues as to the type of astrologer you are likely to be. Modern astrologers take Uranus, as the ruler of our craft and the traditional ruler is Mercury.

During transits to sensitive planets and chart points in your natal chart external changes may occur to alter your life path.

Experiencing progressions to sensitive planets and chart points is a time when internal changes are likely to develop to alter your karmic direction.

The above two points (transits and progressions to your natal chart) can suggest times in your life when astrology will begin to loom large. The more forecast triggers happening at once the more likely it will be.

Uranus

As the modern ruler of astrology and astrologers Uranus indicates an astrologer if it is conjoined your ascendant, Sun, Midheaven or Mercury. Or if Uranus is oriental where it suggests your vocation.

There are many instances where Uranus aspects the oriental planet in well-known astrologer’s charts.

All natal aspects to your Uranus will modify the type of astrologer you are likely to become.

Uranus conjunctions are the strongest indicators.

When natal Uranus is stimulated by progressions from the Sun, Mercury, the ascendant or Midheaven an interest in astrology will probably develop.

Aquarius

Aquarius on the first house cusp shows a personal interest in astrology.

On the Midheaven the Water bearer indicates that a business can be made from astrology.

When your progressed or directed ascendant or Midheaven enters Aquarius the focus of your life will shift. This change alone will not confirm astrology, but it will if supported by other indicators.

Mercury

The traditional ruler of astrology and astrologers is Mercury the planet of information gathering and dispersal and of scribing the events of the day.

When your natal Mercury receives aspects from transiting Uranus astrology becomes an interest.

Jupiter

As the philosopher and teacher, Jupiter often conjoins, squares or opposes the Sun or Uranus in astrologer’s natal charts.

It also frequently contacts Mercury, the ascendant or Midheaven.

When natal Jupiter is stimulated by transiting Uranus or progressed Mercury it may spark an interest and you will seek astrological knowledge.

Factors

Many factors contribute to an interest in astrology. If you take your passion for astrology a step further it makes sense to look at the career indicators for “An astrologer” in your chart. This can guide you towards fulfilling the potential shown by your natal placements.

If you live in tune with your natal chart you are more likely to be satisfied with your life and you can more readily be the type of astrologer your chart suggests, than one which you think you should be, by attempting to emulate those around you.

Do you have a strong Uranus or Mercury? What are your astrology indicators?

Uranus square Pluto both disposed by Mars

Uranus square Pluto and Mars in Virgo June 2012

I have spent some time thinking about Mars as the dispositor of Uranus in Aries (Mars is dignified by rulership in Aries) and the exalted ruler of Pluto in Capricorn (Mars is dignified by exaltation in Capricorn).

There will be seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto over the next two years. This upcoming scenario provides a living classroom to monitor how a dispositor’s condition influences transiting planets.

Uranus is in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn for the whole period.

  • June 24, 2012 – Uranus 08 – Pluto 08 Rx – Mars Virgo 25
  • September 19, 2012 – Uranus 07 Rx – Pluto 07 – Mars Scorpio 17 (rulership)
  • May 21, 2013 – Uranus 11 – Pluto 11 – Mars Taurus 22 (detriment)
  • November 1, 2013 – Uranus 09 Rx – Pluto 09 – Mars Virgo 10
  • April 21, 2014 – Uranus 13 – Pluto 13 Rx – Mars Libra 14 Rx (detriment)
  • December 15, 2014 – Uranus 12 Rx – Pluto 12 – Mars Aquarius 08
  • March 17, 2015 – Uranus 15 – Pluto 15 – Mars Aries 19 (rulership)

The square aspect is the one where you can get things done. This is not the time to wait and see. The urgency inherent in a square demands situations to happen, unfold and manifest.

A ninety degree aspect as a vector brings two difficult sides together to thrash out solutions. The issues ruled by Uranus and Pluto will be affected as they are brought into an alliance (sometimes kicking and screaming) by this transiting aspect.

Look in your chart and find the two houses where Uranus and Pluto are now. The situations expressed by each house indicate how you will experience much of this ongoing square.

Now consider which house Mars is in at the time of the seven exact aspects (see table). This position will influence how you make an effort and experience the themes developed through this square transit. Mars as a dispositor by rulership and exaltation may change the nature of the energies being sparked from the square.

Over the period you may find that all three planets shift from one house to another in your chart. As Mars moves house it suggests how you may challenge the square from different standpoints. Use Martian attributes of action, heat and competition coupled with the house meaning to expend the energy being brought to bear by the Uranus Pluto square.

As the Uranus square Pluto transit evolves, the condition of Mars will influence your experience.

Over the next four years as each square applies I will ponder the presence of Mars over the square. I invite you to share your experiences.

Alison Price • Hey Lin, I’m glad you found this valuable information. I find watching transits in action is a great learning tool.

Lin Ewing • Me too. And in the last class we discussed the planets and dispositors. So this article will be a nice follow-up for them.
