 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. Pluto is in a long-term square to the U.S. Juno this month, becoming exact on the 24th. Juno’s activation suggests the empowerment of women in a variety of ways, especially women who have been held back or under-appreciated for so long (12th house influence). Look for new developments within the #MeToo movement, a surge in politically active women, and the elevation of women in the corporate world. 

2. Uranus is octile (45º) Neptune all month, and exact on the 16th -- just two days before Neptune turns retrograde. If we think of the internet as having started during the 1993 Uranus-Neptune conjunction, this opening octile represents some developmental pressure, the eruption of new problems and the attempts to manage them. The top news item in this field is currently how to manage private data in the digital age. This Uranus-Neptune cycle is also associated with “Fake News”. See nsc012918

3. Saturn is quincunx the North Node in Leo on the 18th, and may bring a turning point in personal affairs for many from the 16th through 22nd. Simultaneously, Venus conjoins the North Node while opposing Mars on the karmic South Node. Romantic triangles can begin or come apart at this time, while long-term commitments may also be under pressure. Utmost caution is required to safely navigate the difference between friendship and romantic interests.

4. The Summer Solstice on the 21st takes place at 6:08 am (EDT), and the chart set in Washington DC features scandal-mongering Neptune at the Midheaven. The Sun-Saturn opposition sets the tone for the next three months, and emphasizes the challenging political climate, both domestically and internationally, and which is exacerbated by the square to Chiron in Aries. However, the Sun-Saturn is also harmonized by Uranus in Taurus, which may bring surprising breakthroughs in longstanding rivalries.

5. Mars in Aquarius turns retrograde on the 26th, beginning a two-month phase. This interval is not a good time to start new business ventures, or otherwise begin new projects. Best advice is to slow down and be patient. Use the time to consider alternatives to achieving goals. Impulsive actions taken over the next two months are likely to backfire. For those with prominent placements in Aquarius, mental exhaustion may become a problem. Learn to take breaks.
