 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?

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 activates Trump’s natal Mercury-Neptune repeatedly in 2018, with the first square to Neptune exact on the 11th. Many astrologers are looking see this aspect as a time when he will be called to task for lying. However, with transiting Uranus trine his Mars/Ascendant as well as progressed Venus conjunct natal Jupiter through June, he has astrological protection. Still, Saturn here will likely focus Mueller’s investigation.

2. Saturn opposes the U.S. Jupiter on the 11th and is in effect from the 1st through 22nd. This astro-event works with Saturn’s opposition to the U.S. Venus, since they are conjunct in early Cancer. Expect a continuation of mergers, buy-outs, and other corporate consolidations, especially regarding the large financial institutions such as banks, insurance, and investment firms. Saturn here furthers the divide between the super-rich and the wannabes, between the haves and the have-nots.

3. The Solar Eclipse on the 15th in Aquarius squares Jupiter in Scorpio, at its worst, fostering deep-seated divisions between social groups (Aquarius) based on intense religious, political, or other passionately held beliefs (Jupiter in Scorpio). Social networking is emphasized, both personally and geopolitically. This Solar Eclipse is the flip side of the Solar Eclipse last August 21, and similarly hits Donald Trump’s Mars, which may indicate more saber rattling, political conflicts, and showdowns.

4. Pluto squares the US Chiron-Juno opposition, a configuration in effect all year, beginning this month. Juno in the 12th house symbolizes the disenfranchised elements of society, and Chiron adds a wounded quality or health issue. Juno is especially concerned with women’s equality and hidden abuse, so the Pluto square stirs things up, adding to the #MeToo cases, and the fight for equal pay in the workplace (Chiron in 6th). 

5. Neptune in Pisces is activated by conjunctions with Mercury and Venus from the 20th through 25th. Venus picks up the compassionate, empathetic side of Neptune when she enters Pisces on the 10th and carries it through the end of the month, especially on the 20th and 21st when she conjoins Neptune. This is a good time to disconnect from routine, listen to music, enjoy the arts, try yoga, walk through nature, and connect with the Anima Mundi.
