 NeptuneCafe is a virtual astrology magazine, one of the best I've seen online. There's something of the feel of coffeehouse conversations, if all the patrons were smart and savvy  
astrophiles on espresso - the think drink. Don't miss Michael Wolfstar's weekly NewsScope column. Guest columns by well known astrologers - well, astrologers well known within the astrological community - can be quite an eye opener to people who think astrology begins and ends with Sun Signs. Who knew astrology could be popular without Sun Signs?

In the industrialized world, why is the U.S. the most violent nation?
The Scorpio Rising chart uniquely explains this tendency, especially when considering the problem as a health issue. The 6th and 12th houses are coming under increased stress. more
1. Mars opposes Jupiter on the 5th, bringing in expansive, talkative, confrontational and competitive scenarios from the 1st through 6th. Mars here is restless and combative since it’s intensified by a simultaneous quincunx to Pluto. Find a constructive outlet for heightened physical energies through sports or recreational activities. Beware of dogmatic, self-righteous tendencies, both in others and yourself. On the road, drive defensively, and don’t assume others will be following the rules. 

2. Saturn conjoins the South Node on the 20th and is in effect all month. If you have planets in the 19º-21º of the cardinal signs, you will be most influenced by this challenging, heavy, fateful dynamic, especially where health, professional expression, and family matters are concerned. Saturn here may bring hardships, burdens, demanding responsibilities, personal tests and/or loss. Understand the limits of your personal power to influence events. Accept that these deep changes are necessary for your next evolutionary phase. 

3. The Full Moon in Scorpio 
takes place on the 18th (5:11 pm EDT), marking an emotional peak on many levels of experience. Family dynamics reach an important turning point, especially regarding generational shifts and milestones. Personal finances may need re-calibrating and re-investing to meet long term goals. The three days leading up to this Full Moon is a good time to rely more on your gut feelings than logic. The chart set for Washington DC features Pluto opposite the Midheaven, indicating radical, historic political changes are unfolding. 

4. Ceres octiles (semisquares) Pluto on the 26th and is a significant influence from the 21st through 29th. This astro-event urges one to find a more meaningful path in life since Ceres is in Sagittarius. It’s a good time to go on a personal quest for truth and the higher significance of events, realizing that everything is connected. A spiritual teacher or guru – even an astrologer -- may facilitate your path to self-understanding, notably, where personal conflicts are most evident. 

5. Mercury aspects all five of the outer planets from the 29th to 31st, ushering in a phase of fascinating, important, and auspicious messages. Don’t believe half of what you hear on the 29th since Mercury squares Neptune, but afterwards, look for clues to where you may expand your horizons. Mercury here may also bring a warning about how your most reliable, stable relationships, work, and health situations may be vulnerable.
