 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. Saturn turns retrograde on the 6th while conjoining the Galactic Center at 27º Sagittarius. The GC can be thought of as “Command Headquarters” for humanity’s collective evolution. Transiting Saturn here tests the current direction, especially regarding the governments and institutions that structure society. Those systems that provide for collective security and growth can be expected to thrive, while those that are half-baked, corrupt, or misguided will need some major adjustments.

2. Mercury turns retrograde on the 9th in Taurus, ushering in a three-week phase when finances can be constructively re-evaluated. As usual, Mercury’s retrograde phase can bring snafus with technological devices, misinformation, and disrupted travel plans. These are to be expected at this time, but go with the flow on this, because Mercury’s only major aspect is a practical trine to Saturn. Make necessary changes to become more reliable for the long term.

3. Venus turns direct on the 15th while squaring Saturn and conjunct Chiron. This powerful, stressful configuration can bring heartbreak and loss to many individuals, especially in personal relationships and business affairs. Keep expectations low when this dynamic is in play from the 5th through 23rd. In Pisces, Venus is being forced by circumstances to give up impractical visions and to take off the rose-colored glasses.

4. Uranus squares the U.S. Mercury on the 10th, a major cycle in American history that has previously brought high-level investigations into presidential wrong-doing. Although this is the final square in the current series, Uranus goes on to square the U.S. Pluto over the next two years. Uranus’s activation of the U.S. Mercury-Pluto axis brings a deeply troubled political scene.

5. The Full Moon in Libra on the 11th conjoins Jupiter while opposing the Sun, Eris and Uranus to make an exceptionally lively, energetic phase. A key issue for many is whether to take independent action or work in cooperation with others during the week leading up to this Full Moon. With Mercury, Venus and Saturn turning retrograde this month, all decisions, results, and new beginnings are subject to major revisions later. April brings an inflection point in relationships, business, and health issues.
