 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. Saturn sextiles the U.S. Scorpio Ascendant this month (exact on the 14th), and also the U.S. Ceres (exact on the 11th). This unusually harmonious influence over national affairs occurs at the same time as the extraordinary Uranus Ingress into Taurus, making for a grand mix of contrasts – and potential breakthroughs. The Gemini president exemplifies these contrasts, with potential historic progress unfolding in North Korea as legal challenges intensify.

2. Uranus enters Taurus on the 15th, beginning this iconoclastic planet’s seven-year passage through the sign of stability, tradition, and finances. It’s an odd combination, and explains why astrologers consider Uranus to be in its “fall” here. The Uranus ingress is spiked by Mars’s nearly simultaneous entrance into Aquarius, so that these two planets form an explosive square. If you have any natal planets at zero degrees of any sign, you will feel this volatile dynamic. Take due caution.

3. Mars enters Aquarius on the 16th, marking the beginning of an extra lengthy passage through this sign of friendship, networking, and group mind. Except for three weeks (mid-August to early September), Mars will be in Aquarius through November 15. Aquarians in general will feel energized by this phase, and wherever Aquarius falls in your horoscope, you’ll be likely to be more assertive and stick up for your rights.

4. Jupiter trines Neptune on the 25th and is in effect from the 17th through month’s end. For most people -- those who primarily operate in the material world – this subtle combo will go by unnoticed. However, for those on “the path”, this ethereal pair may raise your consciousness, reveal higher truths, and inspire transpersonal service. Jupiter-Neptune brings clear messages in dreams, via meditation, and psychic tools such as tarot cards and astrology. Experience intuition, empathy, and compassion. 

5. On the 17th, Black Moon Lilith conjoins Pluto in Capricorn, with an influence felt all month. These two archetypes share a sense of mystery, hidden power, enchantment, fascination, and creative transformation. Those with natal placements in the 20º to 22º of the cardinal signs will feel the presence of this duo which could take you through some difficult encounters and/or provide an urgent incentive to make deep changes. On the geopolitical level, expect some serious covert operations to come to light.
