 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 8th in the last degree of Sagittarius. Traditional astrologers consider the 29th degree to be “critical” in some way, often with a sense of desperation or being at the end of a stressful transition. From the 6th through 11th (when Mercury re-enters Capricorn), watch out for arrogant, self-righteous, and hypocritical statements. Use your critical thinking and analytical power to persuade rather than pronounce. 

2. The Full Moon on the 12th energizes the Capricorn/
Cancer polarity, emphasizing family responsibilities, career, and cross-generational relationships. But this duty-conscious Moon has a strong kink since it squares a Jupiter-Uranus opposition, inspiring us to make a strong move in a new, more exciting direction. This Cardinal Grand Cross is action-oriented, but getting all the various participants, goals, and situations synchronized is the challenge. Find creative solutions between order and chaos.

3. Mars squares Saturn on the 19th, a stressful combination in effect from the 15th through 23rd. Expect heated clashes over morality, religion, and political ideology. For those with health issues, this aspect can bring physical pain. Be wary of accidents and violent confrontations. On the positive side, this astro-event can bolster endurance and any kind of physical activity that includes a whole-body approach, such as dancing, yoga or Tai Chi. 

4. Uranus is trioctile (135º) the North Node on the 11th, but within one degree from the 1st through 24th. This wild card configuration can bring sudden and unexpected changes into your life, especially concerning any prominent natal placement at 5º or 20º of any sign. For many, a seemingly fated shift takes place concerning work or health that requires you to be more independent. Geopolitically, this aspect creates volatile, rapidly changing events.

5. Jupiter is quincunx (150º) Chiron all this month and next, blending the highly social and expansive side of Jupiter in Libra with the mystical, teaching side of Chiron. Jupiter-Chiron can bring a guru-type into your life, but some in this class will have hidden personal flaws that contradict what they’re teaching. This is a good time to get the Big Picture on your personal health, and help lost souls to become more integrated into your social network.
