 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 conjoins Uranus on the 13th, an extremely explosive, volatile dynamic that can be felt from the 1st through mid-month. With this combination taking place in assertive, aggressive Aries, much can be accomplished under this influence, but be careful not to take on more than you can handle. This Mars-Uranus dynamic may also bring upsets, severe miscalculations, careless mistakes, and even extreme danger. Watch out for accidents, be careful while driving and when handling sharp objects. The government shutdown reaches a critical turning point.

2. Chiron enters Aries on the 18th where it will remain until 2027 when it enters Taurus. During this phase, when Chiron aspects your natal planets, you may feel pain in self-expression, or not being adequate in some fundamental way. Those who attempt to conceal these psychological wounds will be pushing themselves to the max to achieve external success, wealth, and fame. Chiron here urges you to be yourself while aligning your drives with a higher goal. 

3. Ceres is octile (semisquare or 45º) Pluto from the 14th through 20th, becoming exact on the 18th. This phase may bring unresolved family issues to your attention, such as how to take care of children and/or elderly parents and grandparents. Now is a good time to let go of “laissez-faire” wishful thinking, and take practical steps to bring more order into your shared lives. Pharmaceuticals may be an issue. Establish some ground rules and appropriate limits or boundaries. 

4. The Full Moon in Virgo takes place on the 19th, just as the Sun enters Pisces. Many people may feel this astro-event as a significant ending and new beginning in a very personal way. However, it also has strong political tones with Uranus simultaneously opposing Pallas (the political strategy asteroid) as Pallas is turning retrograde. Thus, the Full Moon brings a dramatic, emotional climax over partisan issues, like the government shut down and investigations into Trump’s affairs. Take precautions so you don’t develop PAD (Political Anxiety Disorder). 

5. The Sun sextiles Mars on the 27th, becoming an energizing dynamic from the 22nd through month’s end. This phase is especially favorable for taking constructive action toward establishing your financial security, and for grounding your vision or intuitive insights in practical terms. What makes you feel more stable, prosperous, and physically strong? Now is an excellent time to set goals and take the necessary steps that will fulfill your dreams and make you feel more vigorous.
