 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?

Black Moon
Lilith
the Dark Goddess
Mystical, autonomous, extreme, highly sexual, and exceptionally creative, Black Moon Lilith represents the soul's truth and is a major astrological player in personal and geopolitical charts. NeptuneCafe now has five pages on Lilith. You can preview or link directly to each by going to the Lilith Front Page
Visit the Astrology of Lilith for interpretive clues, or Lilith Profiles for descriptions of Lilith in each sign.

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. The Lunar Eclipse on the 7th takes place at 15º Aquarius, with the Leo Sun conjunct Mars indicating active, bold leadership. This eclipse may bring major developments for those with important natal placements in the 12º to 18º Aquarius/Leo polarity. It happens to align with the U.S. Leo Midheaven, suggesting dramatic changes in leadership within the U.S. and/or its standing in the international community. 

2. Uranus octiles Neptune on the 11th, the first of five such aspects through May 2019. This outer planet connection will be most strongly felt by those born during the Uranus-Neptune conjunction in the early 1990s as they begin to make their mark on the world. The next two years brings heightened divisions between groups connected by the internet, which in the U.S. is most evident in the separate cyber realities created by liberals and conservatives. 

3. Mercury turns retrograde on the 12th while conjunct Vesta in Virgo. This station marks a good time to re-evaluate work priorities as well as personal nutrition and hygiene. Some will be able to devote more time to what may be called a sacred path or duty. Now and over the next three weeks is a good time to re-evaluate finances and re-connect with sisters or women who are like sisters. 

4. The Solar Eclipse on the 21st is the astro-event of the year! For most people, it will be an exciting spectacle since the eclipsed Sun is exactly trine Uranus and widely trine Saturn, making an entertaining, creative Fire Grand Trine. As most astrology students know, it also aligns with Donald Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in Leo, along with the royal star, Regulus. Those with a regal or actual royal status are due for some major life changes. 

5. Black Moon Lilith conjoins Saturn on the 22nd with this connection being in effect from the 14th through 29th. These two antithetical forces coming together can be intensely creative and manifest in the unknown or unseen coming to light. Inner knowing may clash with consensus reality, making this two-week phase good for breaking through artificial boundaries and overly restrictive limits. Patriarchal worldviews clash with the rising Goddess energy.
