 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. Mercury turns direct on the 3rd while conjoining Uranus, likely beginning an eventful week leading up to the Full Moon on the 10th. Stay on your toes for sudden, potentially dangerous or unexpected conflicts, especially during your daily drive or while traveling. Geopolitical events shaped by bold threats or brash posturing can erupt spontaneously. The clash of ideologies takes center stage. Stay alert to avoid accidents.

2. Jupiter is quincunx (150º) Neptune on the 17th and becomes a prominent vibe beginning around the 7th and lasting until early July. Those with prominent planets at 13º or 14º of any sign will be most influenced by this idealistic mystic vibe. Watch out for drug or alcohol abuse, relying on unrealistic hopes, and hypocritical leaders with delusional worldviews. On the plus side, this combination may bring intriguing new relationships, enhance kindness and compassion, and illuminate one with a true sense of spiritual awareness.

3. Saturn trines Uranus on the 19th, and is in play from the 9th through 24th. In our anxious times, this combination brings some relief by providing large scale arrangements to make steady progress, especially in business and geopolitical affairs. This window of opportunity can bridge the political, ideological divides by combining the tried and true with the innovative and futuristic. Use this harmonious phase to expand your interests wherever doors may open.

4. The Sun octiles (45º) Venus on the 20th and is in effect from the 13th through month’s end; it continues through most of June. This highly sensual, pleasurable astro-event favors romantic getaways, new relationships, and re-igniting the passion in committed partnerships. Women are favored to be more open and direct about who and what they like. In general, this is a good time for enjoying Mother Nature, appreciating art, and seeing the beauty in self and others.

5. Lilith and Uranus are trioctile (135º) on June 1st, but within orb from May 16th through mid-June. These two in combination are highly unconventional, and enjoy disrupting institutional or patriarchal systems. Those entrenched in these systems can expect some snafus and rebellion, or feel an urge to break away. Geopolitically, this disruptive pair can create a crisis atmosphere. For more intuitive free spirits, be open to spontaneous insights.
