Astrological preview for 2015


 

Introduction

When we look back ta the year 2014, this year again turned out to have been not an easy year and a year full of difficulties and changes.

A year where for some of us, difficulties were solved and new perspectives appeared,  but for a lot of us confrontations still took place and changes were not very welcome.

Many of the changes could be related to the square Uranus and Pluto formed, this year for the 5th and 6th hit. Together with Jupiter in Cancer Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn a T-square was formed and sometimes even a grand square, when other planets made their transit in Libra. A grand square always brings a lot of tension, especially when the planet Mars transited through Libra.

The struggle for innovation, change and liberation against power structures has been the main issue. Remember for instance the conflicts in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,

When Saturn and Uranus were station and inconjunct between the 17th and 24th of July we had to deal with 3 airplane accidents with a lot of victims in one week. The MH17 incident was one of them.

 

What important energies will dominate in 2015

The most important aspect for 2015 will be the square between Uranus and Pluto on March 17th. This is the 7th and final square in this sequence.

This event coincides with the solar eclipse on March 20th, short before the spring equinox.

This last square will not automatically lead to a peaceful society, because Pluto remains for many years in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn indicates revolutionary struggles for freedom against vested structures. And vested structures will use it to increase their power on their citizens. At the same time, as the mutual reception between Saturn and Pluto comes to an end, it will become much more difficult to solve issues of power, because authorities will tend to believe they have a special position.

The struggle for liberation in many countries will proceed and may even get worse.

As every year Jupiter will change signs, this time from Leo to Virgo. Expressions of Jupiter in Leo are lack of self-criticism and conceitedness. Jupiter in Virgo puts stress on moral values and serving attitudes. This will lead to the unmask and fall of many big Ego’s.

In 2015 Venus turns retrograde again, this time between the 5th of June and the 8th of October. This time Venus will stay for many months in the sign Leo. In general this will be a nice period of time with lots of creativity and sometimes love. Depending on the area of life that is affected in the own horoscope it can bring a lot of pleasure and positive influence, however when Venus is retrograde it sometimes might also turn out to be the other way around.

 

2015 from month to month

 

January

At the beginning of the month the stress from the 6th square between Uranus and Pluto is still present. From January 12th Mars will enter Pisces, the stress and readiness to fight will be tempered. Around the 15th of the month communication will be loving. Around January 20th we can meet loved persons from the past. Between the 21st of January and the 10th of February, Mercury goes retrograde in the sign Aquarius. Communication with friends can be difficult, but also disturbances in electronic communication and aircraft equipment might occur.

 

February

On February 22nd we have a conjunction between the planets Venus and Mars.

It is a good time to start a love relation. It is also a good period for creation and many creative expressions. At het end of the month the stress of the 7th square between Uranus and Pluto builds up again. As at the same time we have a square between Saturn and Mars there can be a focus on struggles with authorities, for instance with fiscal authorities.

 

March

Around the 11th of the month we have to deal with explosive situation both on a psychical as on a physical level. So be careful and only participate in fights if it is inevitable.

On March 17th we have the 7th waning square between Pluto and Uranus on the 16th degree of the signs Capricorn and Aries.

The 16th degree of Aries symbolizes “the process to become like a child” and the chance to recall hidden capacities.

The 16th degree of Capricorn indicates the importance of physical efforts to stimulate a healthy community.

Together with Neptune in Pisces it might give the inspiration to work on health on a big scale.

On March 20th we have a solar eclipse at the last degree of Pisces. This is the degree where the seed for a new beginning has been seeded and potency for the future is created. Hopefully we can derive the inspiration for this sew phase from the square between Uranus and Pluto. This energy with stress between renewal and control, innovation and keeping things unchanged, explosion and purification lies now behind us.

 

April

On April 5th we have to deal with stressful situations. Depending on the personal horoscope it can be an indication for danger. You may also meet people who will try to have power on you.

The following day is a perfect day for innovation and in relation to yesterday’s energy thorough renewals.

On April 18th we can easily have a conflict with our partner. There is also a tendency to exaggerate.

On April 19th we can easily get mixed up and disorientated. There is also a loving tendency favoring love relations.

 

May

On May 9th we will have difficulties to think analytical and sharp. Our thinking may be veiled a little bit, so we could look at things through colored spectacles. Be careful in using alcohol or medicine, you can be very sensitive now.

Between May 19th and June 2nd Mercury is retrograde in the sign Gemini. This could lead to problems in al forms of communication, verbal and as well with technical equipment and in travelling. Be prepared and take care to be ale to communicate in urgent circumstances. On May 31st we can easily be influenced. Be careful in believing strange stories, you might easily be misled.

 

June

As soon as Mercury turns direct again on the second of June, the planet Neptune is station and will soon go retrograde. It can easily lead to disorientation. It is possible you will get lost somewhere.

On June 15th Saturn returns to Scorpio, this will indicate a relative quiet and constructive period. Use the coming 3 months well to solve structural problems thoroughly.

 

July

The first of July, Jupiter and Venus are in conjunction. A beautiful and very positive energy will come to us. Sometimes you can be teased to spend too much money on luxury things. Be aware and try to be responsible and do not spend more money than you can afford. For sure it will be a nice period with lots of good manifestations. On July 25th Venus goes retrograde (until September 5th). This will for most of the time take place in Leo. It will give people the intention to relax and have comfort. Love relations will in general have a good time. On this same day Uranus is station and goes retrograde the next day. While Uranus makes a square with Mars at the same time we may have to deal with explosive discussions or explosions in real life. So be careful with explosive equipment like barbecues.

 

August

The first day’s of July many activities can run uneven. It might be together with psychological tension. When Mercury goes in Virgo on August 8th the ratio will start to dominate our thinking again. Our thinking becomes much more analytical and critical. It is a good time to get involved in complex problems and to find solutions for them.

On the 11th of August Jupiter leaves Leo and enters Virgo. Moral values become important again and our attitudes will be more service directed.

Venus in conjunction with the Sun on August 15th takes place on the 22nd degree of Leo. It is a good time for love, art, luxury and beauty of life. Take the time and enjoy.

On August 23rd Sun enters the sign Virgo. Our need for joy comes to an end, we will get more serious, practical, critical and serviceable.

On August 26th we have the yearly conjunction between the Sun and Jupiter. As it will take place on the 4th degree of Virgo, our service tendency on the degree of societal brotherhood will be emphasized.

 

September

On the 5th of the month Venus turns direct again. It is also the beginning of an eclipse period. Relations that have not been preserved the weeks before may come to an end.

We will also loose famous people especially known for their service attitude.

The eclipse will take place on the 20th degree of Virgo, a degree with an indication to leave the past behind us and to cooperate in a big adventure of societal consciousness.

Between September 17th and October 2nd we can have communication problems with our partners. It is not a good time to conclude contracts, especially not when they are complex.

On September 17th Jupiter and Neptune are in opposition. Initiatives that have been started 5 years ago come to an end, either as a successful contribution to society or as a failure that collapses.

On September 18th Saturn enters Sagittarius and will stay there up to December 20th 2017, the day it will enter the own sign Capricorn.

Astrological preview April 2014

April 2014 will be dominated by a Grand Cross with Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter and Mars retrograde as the 4th planet. As Mars is retrograde the energy related to this Grand Cross will mainly be directed internally.

As such this might mean good luck in these roaring times with a lot of threat, when we will manage to use this energy to get deeper insight and understanding that differences should be discussed and solved by rational communication.

On April 1st we could have the tendency to exaggerate, as the Sun makes a square with Jupiter. So try to be somewhat reluctant and not too overwhelming. The next day we could meet unexpected surprises or have to deal with innovative ideas.

The Grand Cross will be in place until the en of may, however related to other geocosmic influences the influence of the energy may change from day tot day. Sometimes it will bring good opportunities, on other days you can meet trouble or bottlenecks. Try to understand the meaning of these events and make changes where necessary in what you try to achieve.

On April 5th Venus makes a transfer to Pisces, this is the beginning of a period where romanticism can come in your daily live. However on April 12th we could lose our view on reality. Especially people who have an important planet on the 7th degree of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius.

On April 7th Mercury changes signs from Pisces to Aries. Our thinking becomes more clear, more rational and quicker.

The period from April 16th is the most important of this month.

Apart from the Grand Cross there will be a “Kite” formed by Jupiter as the apex planet in opposition with Pluto. Together with Venus in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio Jupiter will also form a Grand Trine in water signs, giving a deep emotional feeling and sensitivity. And complete the “Kite”.

Jupiter as the linking pin in this configuration of cosmic relations and enables growth and innovation.

The meaning of the 14th degree of Cancer where Jupiter resides is “fame”. Those born on July 3rd or 4th will truly benefit from this energy, but also people who are born between April 15th and 21st can benefit.

On April 20th the Sun will enter the sign Taurus. We will be more attracted by nature from this day and will like to spend more time outside in a natural surroundings.

On April 21st we will have to deal with the 5th square (out of 7) between Pluto and Uranus.

I have edited a former article on this constellation elsewhere on this site (see august 2011: Radical changes). It will bring innovative energies but also troubles and opposition.

On April 23rd the opposition between Uranus and Mars (retrograde) will be exact. It could easily lead to explosive situations.

The solar eclipse on April 29th on the 9th degree of Taurus asks our attention for Nature as source of all live. This degree is symbolized by the “tree of life”. A solar eclipse also symbolizes a New Moon phase and a beginning of a new monthly stage in our lives. Try to get the inspiration especially related to the value of nature.

Accept what comes on your way and dance on the waves of events striking you, is the message of this degree. Everything that does not fit in your own plan has a special meaning for you. Try to understand the lessons and intertwine them in your life.
