 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?

Donna Cunningham on Saturn-Pluto  Now that Saturn is in Sagittarius, it's challenging an entire generation - those born with Pluto in Virgo. There's three articles in this well-written series.

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 direct on the 6th while trine Chiron, a highly beneficial influence for health concerns from the 1st through 10th. In Scorpio, Mercury here encourages a deeper look at any health issue, which could include psychological, emotional, and spiritual as well as physical. Mercury’s quincunx to Uranus can bring sudden insights into the mind-body interconnections. Look for alternatives outside mainstream pharmaceuticals. 

2. Saturn is quincunx (150º) the U.S. Uranus on the 10th and within effective orb from the 1st through 19th. The U.S. Uranus resides in the 8th house of corporations and represents the tech industry. Saturn‘s pressure has coincided with bearish pullbacks in Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google – the leaders of the tech sector. Saturn brings up challenging problems to resolve. Watch for major developments around the 17th or 18th when Jupiter opposes the U.S. Uranus.

3. The Sun is octile (45º) Venus on the 16th, a loving, harmony-generating influence in effect from the 12th through 21st. This highly romantic combination favors being with someone special. It’s also good for socializing in general, and developing your personal style. With Venus near Ceres, sharing elegant meals together is a best bet. After the 21st and through month’s end, Venus conjoins Ceres, which favors family time, especially across generations. 

4. The Winter Solstice on the 21st takes place the day before the Full Moon in Cancer when emotions, primal instincts, and family dynamics are the most intense. The chart set in Washington DC (5:23 pm) features Saturn conjunct the Descendant, perhaps triggering a government shutdown over Trump’s wall. Otherwise, many favorable combinations (notably, Mercury conjunct Jupiter) suggest solid progress on the personal front for the next three months. 

5. Juno turns direct on the 23rd while trine Pluto. This relatively long-term influence is in effect from the 6th into the first week of January and is highly favorable for creating or regenerating committed partnerships, both personal and business. Expect this pragmatic combination to manifest in high finance with major corporate buy-outs and mergers. The Juno-Pluto vibe resonates with transiting Pluto squaring the U.S. Juno, and the empowered women coming to Washington.
