 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?

Progressions, what are they?
Like fractals, progressions have similar shapes at different scales of time. They are clearer symbols of forthcoming events than transits. Why don't more astrologers use them? Get the scoop

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. Uranus turns direct on the 2nd while squaring the U.S. Mercury, kicking the New Year off with a frenzy of new beginnings, fascinating technological breakthroughs, and vexing geopolitical developments. Among these, look for breaking news on Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling, and diplomatic – possibly military -- action in the global hotspots. If you’re in a rut, this is a good time to try something radically different. Innovation is rewarded.

2. A rare Sun-Venus-Pluto triple conjunction takes place on the 9th, marking the high point of the Sun and Venus traveling together in Capricorn. The Sun-Venus vibration encourages friendly and romantic get-togethers in the work environment, especially from the 5th through 12th. The 6th through 9th are power days, when much can be accomplished. Dress conservatively but stylishly for best results. Business opportunities and sexual attraction are both at play.

3. Mercury enters Capricorn on the 11th and then conjoins Saturn on the 13th, marking a three-day phase for major negotiations, contracts, and important corporate announcements. For the rest of the month, Mercury here operates on facts, keen observation, and common sense, so a good time to break through the “fake news” cycle, or to find out what’s happening outside your information bubble. You can be especially persuasive on the 23rd, 24th, and 25th. 

4. Jupiter sextiles Pluto on the 15th, an expansive, success-oriented development that’s in effect from the 7th through 25th. Now is the time to think big, to put whatever capital you have to work, as long as it’s not too risky. Markets often top off at the crest of favorable outer planet combinations, and this is one. This planetary duo favors the expansion of Corporate America, and will likely bring numerous mega-mergers and buy-outs. 

5. The Full Moon in Leo on the 31st is a partial Lunar Eclipse and exactly conjunct Ceres, while the Sun is still conjunct Venus. Heading into this bright astro-event, many will feel the call of the parent-child relationship, the need for caretaking at some level. That may mean being responsible for children or elderly parents. This contrasts with the urge to do your own thing, to be playful and enjoy life. Find the balance for best results.
