 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. Jupiter turns retrograde on the 10th in its own sign Sagittarius. The retrograde phase lasts four months and may reduce one’s enthusiasm for new projects or mark a phase of reassessing opportunities. Those with prominent planets at 23º-24º of any sign may find sudden good fortune or a door opening. Jupiter happens to be quincunx (150º) the U.S. Mercury (exact on the 2nd and 18th), which will likely bring a flood of new investigations following the release of Mueller’s report. 

2. The Sun in Aries octiles (45º) Mars in Gemini from the 9th through 15th, bringing a wave of heightened activity, traveling, and communicating. Since the Sun and Mars are also aspecting Pluto, expect some intense competition in business, sports, and politics. For those who aren’t especially gifted at multi-tasking, distractions may bring mishaps, accidents, and miscalculations, so be careful. Expect hostile action from rivals, grievances to be aired, and many arguments and conflicts in this interval. 

3. The Full Moon on the 19th is in the last degree of Libra (7:13 am EDT), a so-called critical degree because it’s about to change into something else. This Aries/Libra polarity concerns the balance between relationship needs and personal freedom. With the Sun conjunct Uranus, the status quo is about to shift, perhaps due to financial issues or the unwelcome involvement of a third party. Too much self-sacrificing calls for more personal independence. 

4. Pluto turns retrograde on the 24th while squaring Eris, the recently discovered planet beyond Pluto. This dynamic combination pits the powerful corporate, political, financial structure (Pluto in Capricorn) against radical upstarts that see the system as corrupt (Eris in Aries). One manifestation concerns the rise of assertive women in the patriarchal order. This potent combination may bring seismic shifts in the geopolitical order.

5. Saturn turns retrograde on the 29th while less than a degree from the Moon’s South Node. All this month and through May, Saturn will be at 20º Capricorn, marking a critical degree. If you have a major placement at 19º or 20º of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), you’re due for some major life changes likely involving your professional life and/or in your extended family. Look for news on the 30th.
