This can be found out by knowing the time and place of your birth. Sites like Astrodienst and Astrology.com offer free birth charts. Once these are known read the corresponding Astrological sign reading.

Hope everyone has a Blessed Mabon (September 23rd) or Ostara for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

In August, Saturn, Pluto and Neptune are Retrograde.  The partial Solar Eclipse August 11th influence will be felt till January 2019.

Solar Eclipse 11 August 2018 at 18 degrees Leo is a partial solar eclipse

https://astrologyking.com/new-moon-august-2018-solar-eclipse/

The major themes of this eclipse will be thinking, contemplation, deliberation, discussion and debate and power and control issues between people, groups and nations.  With the Sun being conjunct to the Moon there is an emphasis on new plans and seeking new and inventive ways to make progress. This eclipse phase will last until January 2019 Solar Eclipse. With Mercury being square to Jupiter don’t promise what you can’t deliver.

New Moon on Sunday September 9, 2018 falls at 17° Virgo

https://astrologyking.com/new-moon-september-2018-opportunity-and-success/

The New moon opposite Neptune can cause confusion, deception and fear but the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect is a stronger influence associated with opportunities and successes that climax on September 12th.  The benefits from the New Moon manifestation will be both material and spiritual and may include expansions associated with further education and long distance travel. A strong urge to reform your life will coincide with opportunities to make this happen.

The Neptune opposition is also associated with fears associated with competition and aggressive people as well as sneaky people who may cause gossip and scandals and try to peddle things that aren’t needed.  This moon’s energy is focused on uncovering secrets (New Moon trine Pluto) and fears that will lead to more confidence and success through compassionate, creative, spiritual and charitable activities. (Positive attributes of Neptune).

Full moon on Monday September 24, 2018 is at 2° Aries.

https://astrologyking.com/full-moon-september-2018/

This Full Moon’s energy is about overcoming fears due to the positive energy from Mars and Uranus which helps give courage and opportunities to overcome the obstacles in your life and your fears.  Saturn squares the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Chiron which brings negative aspects.  The tests associated with Saturn will help bring the skill-set needed to overcome the obstacles presented.  Mercury opposite the Moon can cause anxiety issues and the Moon conjunct Chiron will bring painful memories from your childhood to the surface.  The Moon square Saturn could bring depression especially for those with the Sun, Moon or Ascendant from 0 to 4 degrees of the Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.

The Moon Sextile Mars will bring confidence and enthusiasm to overcome Saturn’s inhibition and that of the Moon conjunct to the fixed star Deneb Kaitos in 02°50′ Aries in the Sea Monster Constellation.  Saturn trine Uranus encourages the positive changes needed for overcoming limiting situations.  The main caution of this Full Moon is to remain flexible and make planned changes instead of reactive changes that may be too far or daring or you may find you have to begin again.

Saturn is retrograde in 2018 from April 17th to September 6th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/saturn-retrograde

Saturn rules the physical and psychological supports, structures and framework in our lives. During this retrograde any activities and commitments that are problematic can be restructured and long term commitments can be rearranged as activity slows down during this time. This is especially beneficial to those with Saturn in retrograde in their Natal chart where there is a tendency to say Yes when you shouldn’t agree to the terms involved. This tends to be in areas where Saturn is placed in the Astrological Houses. This is also not an ideal time to take on additional long term commitments.

Pluto is retrograde in 2018 from April 22nd to September 30th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/pluto-retrograde

This retrograde is an ideal time for concentration and seeing subconscious motivations.  The focus during this time is on the internal psyche and psychological issues that affect the body.  It can be a very healing time to recover from long term illnesses.  It is also a time to look at life patterns and revamp ways of thinking and attitudes that are unhelpful, especially in areas of personal power.

Neptune retrograde in 2018 starts on June 18 at 16°29′ Pisces and ends on November 24 at 13°41′ Pisces.

https://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

A grand trine aspect with Mercury and Jupiter and Neptune. This is a good time for spiritual quests for truth. Neptune retrograde strips away illusions and can show the source of the pain that you are trying to escape. This can be traumatic and shocking. Some healthy ways to deal with the stress of these revelations include Yoga, Tarot, Astrology, swimming and a healthy, toxin free diet. This a time where misdiagnoses are more likely, so second opinions should sought if needed.  Mercury trine Jupiter brings optimism and good news. Planning or setting off for long journeys are favored at this time. Negotiations, signing contracts and legal matters are also favored. Mercury trine Neptune stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality.  Poetry, Music, Dance and Drama that embody Harmony are enhanced at this time as well as psychic abilities and intuition.  Jupiter trine Neptune encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation.  The fixed stars during this retrograde are associated with religious matters and promote business success (Sirius at 14°19′ Cancer) and artistic ability (Alphecca 12°33′ Scorpio) and happiness and success through good morals (Achemar 5°34′ Pisces)

Uranus Retrograde, August 7, 2018 at 02° Taurus and ends on January 6, 2019 at 28° Aries. 

https://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

This retrograde is associated with nervous anxiety, spasms, neurotic behavior or rapid personality changes.  Major life changes will get an internal change in attitude and behavior to make this type of change possible.  Lets you process things internally before Uranus turns direct and you manifest the change externally.  Venus square Saturn affects your love life, finances and how you value yourself.  Mars square Uranus creates a need for creative energy to be channeled into reinvigorating your personal life instead of the energy being chaotic and causing upset.  With Venus trine Mars activities that combine beauty with action are ideal.  Saturn trine Uranus is a good time to make changes to streamline your life and try to find new ways to do things.

Mercury retrograde 2018 starts on July 26 at 23° Leo and ends on August 19 at 11° Leo

 Saturn is retrograde in 2018 from April 17th to September 6th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/saturn-retrograde

Saturn rules the physical and psychological supports, structures and framework in our lives. During this retrograde any activities and commitments that are problematic can be restructured and long term commitments can be rearranged as activity slows down during this time. This is especially beneficial to those with Saturn in retrograde in their Natal chart where there is a tendency to say Yes when you shouldn’t agree to the terms involved. This tends to be in areas where Saturn is placed in the Astrological Houses. This is also not an ideal time to take on additional long term commitments.

Pluto is retrograde in 2018 from April 22nd to September 30th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/pluto-retrograde

This retrograde is an ideal time for concentration and seeing subconscious motivations.  The focus during this time is on the internal psyche and psychological issues that affect the body.  It can be a very healing time to recover from long term illnesses.  It is also a time to look at life patterns and revamp ways of thinking and attitudes that are unhelpful, especially in areas of personal power.

Neptune retrograde in 2018 starts on June 18 at 16°29′ Pisces and ends on November 24 at 13°41′ Pisces.

https://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

A grand trine aspect with Mercury and Jupiter and Neptune. This is a good time for spiritual quests for truth. Neptune retrograde strips away illusions and can show the source of the pain that you are trying to escape. This can be traumatic and shocking. Some healthy ways to deal with the stress of these revelations include Yoga, Tarot, Astrology, swimming and a healthy, toxin free diet. This a time where misdiagnoses are more likely, so second opinions should sought if needed.  Mercury trine Jupiter brings optimism and good news. Planning or setting off for long journeys are favored at this time. Negotiations, signing contracts and legal matters are also favored. Mercury trine Neptune stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality.  Poetry, Music, Dance and Drama that embody Harmony are enhanced at this time as well as psychic abilities and intuition.  Jupiter trine Neptune encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation.  The fixed stars during this retrograde are associated with religious matters and promote business success (Sirius at 14°19′ Cancer) and artistic ability (Alphecca 12°33′ Scorpio) and happiness and success through good morals (Achemar 5°34′ Pisces)

Mars retrograde 2018 starts on June 26 at 09°13′ Aquarius Sagittarius and ends on August 27 at 28°36′ Capricorn. 

https://astrologyking.com/mars-retrograde/

Extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything is in order before you continue. This is also a time of fated events that may trigger anger management issues. When Mars turns you direct you will be able to act on your desires.  Venus opposite Mars increases sexual tension and physical desires.  Release of this tension would benefit creative outlets of dance, sculpture and exercise.  Mars square Jupiter exaggerates or amplifies the sexual tension. Choose fights carefully and avoid rash actions. Sun opposite Saturn blocks self-expression, during this time so solitary activities that are goal orientated help cope with this type of blockage.

Uranus Retrograde, August 7, 2018 at 02° Taurus and ends on January 6, 2019 at 28° Aries.  

https://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

 This retrograde is associated with nervous anxiety, spasms, neurotic behavior or rapid personality changes.  Major life changes will get an internal change in attitude and behavior to make this type of change possible.  Lets you process things internally before Uranus turns direct and you manifest the change externally.  Venus square Saturn affects your love life, finances and how you value yourself.  Mars square Uranus creates a need for creative energy to be channeled into reinvigorating your personal life instead of the energy being chaotic and causing upset.  With Venus trine Mars activities that combine beauty with action are ideal.  Saturn trine Uranus is a good time to make changes to streamline your life and try to find new ways to do things.

In July, Jupiter (going direct July 10th), Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and Mars are Retrograde.  The is also a Solar Eclipse July 12th and a Lunar Eclipse (July 27th) this month

The New Moon on Thursday July 12, 2018 at 20° Cancer is a partial solar eclipse.

https://astrologyking.com/solar-eclipse-july-2018-2/

A solar eclipse opposite Pluto (can intensify fears) but also indicates a desire to make a life changing transformation which at this time with the fixed star Castor (a time associated with breaking arms and legs and having a nervous breakdowns) is a time to make positive changes and not indulge in destructive habits.

A grand trine of Venus, Saturn and Uranus creates a planetary harmony which lessens the likelihood of a crisis normally associated with a solar eclipse opposite Pluto. The Venus trine Saturn is an auspicious time for relationship commitments and long-term investments. The Venus trine Uranus encourages us to try a different approach to our life. The Saturn trine Uranus is associated with dramatic but stable transformation for the better.

The full moon on July 27, 2018 at 4° Aquarius is a total lunar eclipse. (Blood Moon)

https://astrologyking.com/lunar-eclipse-27-july-2018-blood-moon/

The July 2018 lunar eclipse and Mars are located in the Head of the Sea Goat, Capricornus Constellation. (this location is associated with major storms at sea). A number of fixed stars in this region give patience and trust, but also emotional problems which will worsen the unbalanced emotions of the Moon and Mars square Uranus. This lunar eclipse will affect those born in the early 1940’s more when Pluto was in Leo.

Jupiter Retrograde March 8 at 23° Scorpio and ends on July 10 at 13° Scorpio

https://astrologyking.com/jupiter-retrograde/

Theme for this retrograde is detoxification and addressing issues that are holding back your personal and spiritual growth. This mismatching has the potential to affect your health. It is also affecting the ability in terms of wealth, love and good luck (Jupiter’s positive attributes) being able to manifest abundantly in your life.

The fixed star Unukalhai (rules the colon) pairing increases the likelihood of accidents and operations. Jupiter rules the liver. The Jupiter sextile Pluto (April 14, 2018) heralds success through positive change. (Facilitates the process of detoxification started on Full Moon of March 1st, 2018).

Saturn is retrograde in 2018 from April 17th to September 6th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/saturn-retrograde

Saturn rules the physical and psychological supports, structures and framework in our lives. During this retrograde any activities and commitments that are problematic can be restructured and long term commitments can be rearranged as activity slows down during this time. This is especially beneficial to those with Saturn in retrograde in their Natal chart where there is a tendency to say Yes when you shouldn’t agree to the terms involved. This tends to be in areas where Saturn is placed in the Astrological Houses. This is also not an ideal time to take on additional long term commitments.

Pluto is retrograde in 2018 from April 22nd to September 30th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/pluto-retrograde

This retrograde is an ideal time for concentration and seeing subconscious motivations.  The focus during this time is on the internal psyche and psychological issues that affect the body.  It can be a very healing time to recover from long term illnesses.  It is also a time to look at life patterns and revamp ways of thinking and attitudes that are unhelpful, especially in areas of personal power.

Neptune retrograde in 2018 starts on June 18 at 16°29′ Pisces and ends on November 24 at 13°41′ Pisces.

https://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

A grand trine aspect with Mercury and Jupiter and Neptune. This is a good time for spiritual quests for truth. Neptune retrograde strips away illusions and can show the source of the pain that you are trying to escape. This can be traumatic and shocking. Some healthy ways to deal with the stress of these revelations include Yoga, Tarot, Astrology, swimming and a healthy, toxin free diet. This a time where misdiagnoses are more likely, so second opinions should sought if needed.  Mercury trine Jupiter brings optimism and good news. Planning or setting off for long journeys are favored at this time. Negotiations, signing contracts and legal matters are also favored. Mercury trine Neptune stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality.  Poetry, Music, Dance and Drama that embody Harmony are enhanced at this time as well as psychic abilities and intuition.  Jupiter trine Neptune encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation.  The fixed stars during this retrograde are associated with religious matters and promote business success (Sirius at 14°19′ Cancer) and artistic ability (Alphecca 12°33′ Scorpio) and happiness and success through good morals (Achemar 5°34′ Pisces)

Mars retrograde 2018 starts on June 26 at 09°13′ Aquarius Sagittarius and ends on August 27 at 28°36′ Capricorn. 

https://astrologyking.com/mars-retrograde/

Extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything is in order before you continue. This is also a time of fated events that may trigger anger management issues. When Mars turns you direct you will be able to act on your desires.  Venus opposite Mars increases sexual tension and physical desires.  Release of this tension would benefit creative outlets of dance, sculpture and exercise.  Mars square Jupiter exaggerates or amplifies the sexual tension. Choose fights carefully and avoid rash actions. Sun opposite Saturn blocks self-expression, during this time so solitary activities that are goal orientated help cope with this type of blockage.

Happy Litha, Summer’s Solstice (June 21st)

The Full Moon on Tuesday May 29, 2018 falls at 8 degrees Sagittarius.

https://astrologyking.com/full-moon-may-2018/

This full moon emphasizes competition.  The Heart of Scorpion opposite the Eye of the Bull. Full Moon sextile Mars gives a passionate enthusiasm to work and play. Full Moon semisextile Saturn creates a difficult balancing act between ego gratification and heavy feelings of responsibility.  If you start a conflict at this time, be sure you are self confident, reliant and realistic about your chances of success. Battles lost at this time will require a lot of effort to recover from and determination.

The full moon on Thursday June 28, 2018 is at 6° Capricorn.

https://astrologyking.com/full-moon-june-2018/

Moon conjunct Saturn can bring challenging situations involving the home or your family that are made more difficult with Saturn’s tendency to negative attitude.  Saturn retrograde is a time of anxiety, fear and limitation and restrictions.  The Moon trine Uranus can help you to trust your intuition to liven up and lift the mood and break bad habits to free yourself from a negative environment.

In June, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and towards the end of the month, Neptune (June 18) and Mars (June 26) are Retrograde.

Jupiter Retrograde March 8 at 23° Scorpio and ends on July 10 at 13° Scorpio

https://astrologyking.com/jupiter-retrograde/

Theme for this retrograde is detoxification and addressing issues that are holding back your personal and spiritual growth. This mismatching has the potential to affect your health. It is also affecting the ability in terms of wealth, love and good luck (Jupiter’s positive attributes) being able to manifest abundantly in your life.

The fixed star Unukalhai (rules the colon) pairing increases the likelihood of accidents and operations. Jupiter rules the liver. The Jupiter sextile Pluto (April 14, 2018) heralds success through positive change. (Facilitates the process of detoxification started on Full Moon of March 1st, 2018).

Saturn is retrograde in 2018 from April 17th to September 6th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/saturn-retrograde

Saturn rules the physical and psychological supports, structures and framework in our lives. During this retrograde any activities and commitments that are problematic can be restructured and long term commitments can be rearranged as activity slows down during this time. This is especially beneficial to those with Saturn in retrograde in their Natal chart where there is a tendency to say Yes when you shouldn’t agree to the terms involved. This tends to be in areas where Saturn is placed in the Astrological Houses. This is also not an ideal time to take on additional long term commitments.

Pluto is retrograde in 2018 from April 22nd to September 30th, 2018, in the sign of Capricorn.

http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/pluto-retrograde

This retrograde is an ideal time for concentration and seeing subconscious motivations.  The focus during this time is on the internal psyche and psychological issues that affect the body.  It can be a very healing time to recover from long term illnesses.  It is also a time to look at life patterns and revamp ways of thinking and attitudes that are unhelpful, especially in areas of personal power.

Neptune retrograde in 2018 starts on June 18 at 16°29′ Pisces and ends on November 24 at 13°41′ Pisces.

https://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

A grand trine aspect with Mercury and Jupiter and Neptune. This is a good time for spiritual quests for truth. Neptune retrograde strips away illusions and can show the source of the pain that you are trying to escape. This can be traumatic and shocking. Some healthy ways to deal with the stress of these revelations include Yoga, Tarot, Astrology, swimming and a healthy, toxin free diet. This a time where misdiagnoses are more likely, so second opinions should sought if needed.  Mercury trine Jupiter brings optimism and good news. Planning or setting off for long journeys are favored at this time. Negotiations, signing contracts and legal matters are also favored. Mercury trine Neptune stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality.  Poetry, Music, Dance and Drama that embody Harmony are enhanced at this time as well as psychic abilities and intuition.  Jupiter trine Neptune encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Enlightenment can come through dreams, visions or meditation.  The fixed stars during this retrograde are associated with religious matters and promote business success (Sirius at 14°19′ Cancer) and artistic ability (Alphecca 12°33′ Scorpio) and happiness and success through good morals (Achemar 5°34′ Pisces)

Mars retrograde 2018 starts on June 26 at 09°13′ Aquarius Sagittarius and ends on August 27 at 28°36′ Capricorn. 

https://astrologyking.com/mars-retrograde/

 Extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything is in order before you continue. This is also a time of fated events that may trigger anger management issues. When Mars turns you direct you will be able to act on your desires.  Venus opposite Mars increases sexual tension and physical desires.  Release of this tension would benefit creative outlets of dance, sculpture and exercise.  Mars square Jupiter exaggerates or amplifies the sexual tension. Choose fights carefully and avoid rash actions. Sun opposite Saturn blocks self-expression, during this time so solitary activities that are goal orientated help cope with this type of blockage.

In March Jupiter (March 9th) and Mercury (March 23rd) will be going into Retrograde.

Jupiter Retrograde March 8 at 23° Scorpio and ends on July 10 at 13° Scorpio

https://astrologyking.com/jupiter-retrograde/

Theme for this retrograde is detoxification and addressing issues that are holding back your personal and spiritual growth. This mismatching has the potential to affect your health. It is also affecting the ability in terms of wealth, love and good luck (Jupiter’s positive attributes) being able to manifest abundantly in your life.

The fixed star Unukalhai (rules the colon) pairing increases the likelihood of accidents and operations. Jupiter rules the liver. The Jupiter sextile Pluto (April 14, 2018) heralds success through positive change. (Facilitates the process of detoxification started on Full Moon of March 1st, 2018).

Mercury retrograde 2018 starts on March 22nd at 16° Aries and ends on April 15th at 4° Aries.

https://astrologyking.com/mercury-retrograde/

Mercury retrograde increases the potential for communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. This retrograde is associated with miscommunications in relationships.  New friends may remind you of previous friendships. This is also a time when old flames or friends may come back into your life.

Mercury square Pluto can trigger extreme opinions and use of forceful extreme means of persuasion and Venus square Pluto can cause unhealthy relationships to break down in a painful distressing way.

There are two planets in Retrograde for December (Mercury starting on December 3rd and Uranus) as well as Chiron in Reverse in Pisces which starts to move forward on December 4th.

Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Reverse in Pisces from July 1st to December 4th 2017

http://www.evolvingdoor.ca/miscarticles/chiron-in-pisces.htm

During this time wounded people may be drawn to you. It is important to practice self-care during this transit when helping others as you may find it to be extra draining on you. This transit is also associated with great creativity and enlightenment that manifests itself in a healing and fulfilling way.

Knowing where these planets are in your birth chart can help in anticipating which areas of your life might have difficulties. Saturn retrogrades are associated with fated life lessons.

Uranus Retrograde 2017 starts on August 3, 2017 at 28° Aries and stations direct on January 2, 2018 at 24° Aries.                                                         

http://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

During this retrograde internal changes needed in attitude to make external changes desired are favoured.  This transit allows for internal processing needed to make outward changes especially for things associated with more personal freedom.  On a societal level there will be a move away from the far right when Uranus turns forward with more open trading and fairer dealings for the vulnerable and issues associated with a healing focus for mental illness.

Full Moon At 11°40′ Gemini Sign December 3rd

https://astrologyking.com/full-moon-december-2017/

This full moon combined with Mercury going into retrograde designates caution against misrepresentation which can include thievery, slurs and vulnerability for mental and physical bouts of ill health.

Mercury retrograde 2017 starts on December 3 at 29° Sagittarius and ends on December 22 at 13° Sagittarius.

https://astrologyking.com/mercury-retrograde/

Time especially appropriate for uncovering truths and study ancient knowledge.  Travel will be difficult and it may be a time of sadness and receiving unpleasant news. Mercury aligns with an esoteric star Etamin in the right eye Constellation Draco the Dragon and turns direct in the left eye star Alwaid.

Thanks for reading the November Tarotscope. In addition to knowing your Sun Sign, knowing your Moon and Rising sign is useful for a more in-depth reading. This can be found out by knowing the time and place of your birth. Sites like Astrodienst and Astrology.com offer free birth charts. Once these are known read the corresponding Astrological sign reading.

Hope everyone has a nice Halloween (Samhain) October 30th or Beltaine for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

There are two planets in Retrograde for October (Neptune and Uranus) as well as Chiron in Reverse in Pisces.  Neptune starts to move forward November 22nd so only one planet will be in reverse then before Mercury goes retrograde in December.

Neptune Retrograde June 16 2017 at 16° Pisces and ends on 22 November 2017 at 11° Pisces

http://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

During this retrograde, especially for those with a Neptune retrograde in the natal chart, it is a time associated with Karmic repercussions and soul growth.  This planet’s retrograde is also associated with pandemic illnesses (from the time of the full moon on the 9th of June) and personal emotional torture such as gossip, scandal, and slander as well as religious persecution.  It is important to take extra precautions for personal hygiene and protecting oneself in social situations. A Neptune retrograde when combined with the Saturn and Pluto retrogrades indicates a time associated with the misuse of power.

Neptune retrogrades are also a time of clearing of illusions to reveal the true state, which can be painful.  During this retrograde it is an ideal time for doing a detox, meditation and Yoga, all things that help strengthen the access to the higher self.  Suspicions may prove to be accurate and second opinions may be needed medically as it is a time of more likely misdiagnosis. It is also recommended to use herbal remedies such as Parsley as well as eating Pomegranates and oranges to strengthen the immune system. (always check for any contraindication when using herbal remedies, especially for medical conditions and when taking other herbal remedies or prescription medications).

Lynn Koiner, another astrologer, also advises the focus is more internal during a Neptune Retrograde which can be beneficial because it makes any outstanding issues easier to see than when Neptune is in direct.  Avoiding stimulants, chemicals and drugs during this time is important as well as avoiding drama triggers that drain energies such as addictive personalities, psychic hot spots and drama queens. She suggests using black tourmaline to protect against negative influences and psychic attacks.

Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Reverse in Pisces from July 1st to December 4th 2017

http://www.evolvingdoor.ca/miscarticles/chiron-in-pisces.htm

During this time wounded people may be drawn to you. It is important to practice self-care during this transit when helping others as you may find it to be extra draining on you. This transit is also associated with great creativity and enlightenment that manifests itself in a healing and fulfilling way.

Knowing where these planets are in your birth chart can help in anticipating which areas of your life might have difficulties. Saturn retrogrades are associated with fated life lessons.

Uranus Retrograde 2017 starts on August 3, 2017 at 28° Aries and stations direct on January 2, 2018 at 24° Aries.     

http://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

During this retrograde internal changes needed in attitude to make external changes desired are favoured.  This transit allows for internal processing needed to make outward changes especially for things associated with more personal freedom.  On a societal level there will be a move away from the far right when Uranus turns forward with more open trading and fairer dealings for the vulnerable and issues associated with a healing focus for mental illness.

Thanks for reading the October Tarotscope. In addition to knowing your Sun Sign, knowing your Moon and Rising sign is useful for a more in-depth reading. This can be found out by knowing the time and place of your birth. Sites like Astrodienst and Astrology.com offer free birth charts. Once these are known read the corresponding Astrological sign reading.

Hope everyone has a nice Halloween (Samhain) October 31st or Beltaine for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

The full moon on the October 5th is in 12° Aries and indicates the importance of communication and fate versus free will. The influence of the full moon lasts two weeks and is traditionally a time of completion of goals begun at the New Moon. See more information in Jamie Partridge’s article which also includes a chart reading of the situation with North Korea. https://astrologyking.com/full-moon-october-2017/

There are two planets in Retrograde for October (Neptune and Uranus) as well as Chiron in Reverse in Pisces.

Neptune Retrograde June 16 2017 at 16° Pisces and ends on 22 November 2017 at 11° Pisces

http://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

During this retrograde, especially for those with a Neptune retrograde in the natal chart, it is a time associated with Karmic repercussions and soul growth.  This planet’s retrograde is also associated with pandemic illnesses (from the time of the full moon on the 9th of June) and personal emotional torture such as gossip, scandal, and slander as well as religious persecution.  It is important to take extra precautions for personal hygiene and protecting oneself in social situations. A Neptune retrograde when combined with the Saturn and Pluto retrogrades indicates a time associated with the misuse of power.

Neptune retrogrades are also a time of clearing of illusions to reveal the true state, which can be painful.  During this retrograde it is an ideal time for doing a detox, meditation and Yoga, all things that help strengthen the access to the higher self.  Suspicions may prove to be accurate and second opinions may be needed medically as it is a time of more likely misdiagnosis. It is also recommended to use herbal remedies such as Parsley as well as eating Pomegranates and oranges to strengthen the immune system. (always check for any contraindication when using herbal remedies, especially for medical conditions and when taking other herbal remedies or prescription medications).

Lynn Koiner, another astrologer, also advises the focus is more internal during a Neptune Retrograde which can be beneficial because it makes any outstanding issues easier to see than when Neptune is in direct.  Avoiding stimulants, chemicals and drugs during this time is important as well as avoiding drama triggers that drain energies such as addictive personalities, psychic hot spots and drama queens. She suggests using black tourmaline to protect against negative influences and psychic attacks.

Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Reverse in Pisces from July 1st to December 4th 2017

http://www.evolvingdoor.ca/miscarticles/chiron-in-pisces.htm

During this time wounded people may be drawn to you. It is important to practice self-care during this transit when helping others as you may find it to be extra draining on you. This transit is also associated with great creativity and enlightenment that manifests itself in a healing and fulfilling way.

Knowing where these planets are in your birth chart can help in anticipating which areas of your life might have difficulties. Saturn retrogrades are associated with fated life lessons.

Uranus Retrograde 2017 starts on August 3, 2017 at 28° Aries and stations direct on January 2, 2018 at 24° Aries.                                                          http://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

During this retrograde internal changes needed in attitude to make external changes desired are favoured.  This transit allows for internal processing needed to make outward changes especially for things associated with more personal freedom.  On a societal level there will be a move away from the far right when Uranus turns forward with more open trading and fairer dealings for the vulnerable and issues associated with a healing focus for mental illness.

This can be found out by knowing the time and place of your birth. Sites like Astrodienst and Astrology.com offer free birth charts. Once these are known read the corresponding Astrological sign reading.

Hope everyone has a nice Lammas (August 1st) or Imbolc for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

There are five planets in Retrograde for August (Pluto, Saturn and Neptune and then Uranus and Mercury) as well as Chiron in Reverse in Pisces. Saturn starts to turn direct on August 25th so then there will be four planets in retrograde.

Pluto Retrograde  April 20 at 19° Capricorn and ends on September 28 at 16° Capricorn. 

http://astrologyking.com/pluto-retrograde/

This is a time to focus on removing barriers to growth.  Combined with the Jupiter Retrograde issues of greed, excess, faith or ideology are most like to be problematic.  A reoccurring set of circumstances may occur with a Pluto retrograde until lessons are learned.  Fear of loss of control or being manipulated or betrayed may lead to increased psychic development when Pluto in retrograde is in the birth chart. During this time power and control are important issues and need to be eliminated.  Overcoming addictions or destructive behavior will help spiritual advancement.

Saturn Retrograde April 6 at 27° Sagittarius and stations direct on August 25 at 21° Sagittarius.

http://astrologyking.com/saturn-retrograde/

During this retrograde restriction, limitation; anxiety and fear are issues to be dealt with as well as enhancing the capacity for dealing with increased responsibilities. Depression or isolation may be issues needing solutions and if not dealt with and may require drastic actions to do begin the process.

Neptune Retrograde  June 16 2017 at 16° Pisces and ends on 22 November 2017 at 11° Pisces

http://astrologyking.com/neptune-retrograde/

During this retrograde, especially for those with a Neptune retrograde in the natal chart, it is a time associated with Karmic repercussions and soul growth.  This planet’s retrograde is also associated with pandemic illnesses (from the time of the full moon on the 9th of June) and personal emotional torture such as gossip, scandal, and slander as well as religious persecution.  It is important to take extra precautions for personal hygiene and protecting oneself in social situations. A Neptune retrograde when combined with the Saturn and Pluto retrogrades indicates a time associated with the misuse of power.

Neptune retrogrades are also a time of clearing of illusions to reveal the true state, which can be painful.  During this retrograde it is an ideal time for doing a detox, meditation and Yoga, all things that help strengthen the access to the higher self.  Suspicions may prove to be accurate and second opinions may be needed medically as it is a time of more likely misdiagnosis. It is also recommended to use herbal remedies such as Parsley as well as eating Pomegranates and oranges to strengthen the immune system. (always check for any contraindication when using herbal remedies, especially for medical conditions and when taking other herbal remedies or prescription medications).

Lynn Koiner, another astrologer, also advises the focus is more internal during a Neptune Retrograde which can be beneficial because it makes any outstanding issues easier to see than when Neptune is in direct.  Avoiding stimulants, chemicals and drugs during this time is important as well as avoiding drama triggers that drain energies such as addictive personalities, psychic hot spots and drama queens. She suggests using black tourmaline to protect against negative influences and psychic attacks.

Chiron (Wounded Healer) in Reverse in Pisces from July 1st to December 4th 2017

http://www.evolvingdoor.ca/miscarticles/chiron-in-pisces.htm

During this time wounded people may be drawn to you. It is important to practice self-care during this transit when helping others as you may find it to be extra draining on you. This transit is also associated with great creativity and enlightenment that manifests itself in a healing and fulfilling way.

Knowing where these planets are in your birth chart can help in anticipating which areas of your life might have difficulties. Saturn retrogrades are associated with fated life lessons.

Uranus Retrograde 2017 starts on August 3, 2017 at 28° Aries and stations direct on January 2, 2018 at 24° Aries.

http://astrologyking.com/uranus-retrograde/

During this retrograde internal changes needed in attitude to make external changes desired are favoured.  This transit allows for internal processing needed to make outward changes especially for things associated with more personal freedom.  On a societal level there will be a move away from the far right when Uranus turns forward with more open trading and fairer dealings for the vulnerable and issues associated with a healing focus for mental illness.

Mercury retrograde 2017 starts on August 12 at 11° Virgo and ends on September 5 at 28° Leo.

http://astrologyking.com/mercury-retrograde/

Mercury retrograde affects thoughts (with an increase in the negative), communications, travel and electronics. Reactions needed to be checked to prevent misunderstandings and hostility. Trust issues are especially highlighted during this transit.
