 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. Mercury turns retrograde on the 5th in the nebulous sign of Pisces, bringing confusion and contradictory stories through the 28th. Avoid signing any legal documents or otherwise making important arrangements since relevant information may be missing or incorrectly stated. This month Mercury abides by the inverted motto “believing is seeing”. The most bewildering timeslot is at month’s end when Mercury turns direct while conjoining Neptune: expect spontaneous and sudden changes of trend, opinion, and appearances. 

2. Uranus enters Taurus on the 6th where it will remain until July 2025. Uranus, the Great Awakener, tends to upset everything that seems stable, traditional, reliable, and financially sound. The last time Uranus visited Taurus was during the Great Depression and WW2. Wherever Taurus is located in your chart is the department where you may expect the unexpected. The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in November 2020 squares Uranus, likely indicating a recession is on the horizon. 

3. Saturn is parallel Pluto all month, with the exact hit coming on the 9th. This aspect is equivalent to a conjunction but takes place in latitude rather than zodiacal longitude. Expect power plays, scandals, huge deals and consolidating moves in government, military, corporate, and institutional settings. Saturn and Pluto have been parallel off and on since 2016, but now that transiting Saturn and Pluto are only 3º apart, the vibe is deeply intensified. 

4. The Spring Equinox on the 20th sets the geopolitical tone for the coming year. With Neptune on the Descendant in the chart set for Washington (5:59 pm EDT), we can be sure a major scandal is afoot. This astro-event, also known as the Aries Ingress, takes place only a few hours before the Full Moon in Libra. Emotions are peaking and accurate information is at a premium. With the Sun conjunct Chiron, leadership looks wounded and acting out of sync.

5. Pluto conjoins the Moon’s South Node this month (exact on the 28th), bringing potentially metamorphic changes on many levels. Those with planets at 21º-24º of any sign, but especially Cancer or Capricorn, will be the most influenced by this life-changing transit, especially concerning family dynamics. The U.S. Mercury at 24º Cancer is included, which indicates historic news stories, reports, indictments, and other developments related to Mercury’s symbolism are in the works.
