 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
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 Scorpio, it's challenging an entire generation - those born with Pluto in Leo. 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 New Moon on the 7th conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto, kicking off a dramatic month of important changes in many people’s lives. Those with prominent placements in 17º-20º of cardinal signs will be the most impacted, and urged to get out of stale routines or ruts. This New Moon cycle favors taking action and implementing new ideas and technologies to improve current circumstances. Business and personal relationships are in flux. 

2. Uranus conjoins the U.S. Chiron on the 4th and sextiles the U.S. Mars on the 24th while in the 6th house of military service. These aspects make Uranus a major player all month in U.S. military ventures, likely leading to an increase in drone strikes against terrorist camps, as well as criticism of Obama for not doing enough in Iraq and Syria. Expect to see an increase in insane violence and also developments concerning disabled veterans.

3. Black Moon Lilith trioctiles Neptune on the 17th but is a noticeable influence from the 4th through 27th. This challenging Lilith-Neptune combination promotes fear of the unknown, a heightened sense of invisible or hidden forces, and a pervasive anxiety about the future. Drug and alcohol abuse become problematic for those susceptible to their negative influence. Balanced individuals may expect an increase in intuitive hunches, vivid dreams, and psychic experiences.

4. Mars turns retrograde on the 17th and will be in Sagittarius for the rest of this month and most of May. Watch out for making hasty decisions that you may later regret under this retrograde phase. It’s time to tone down the adventurous spirit, be more patient, and focus on high priorities rather than scattering your energy. Geopolitically, this retrograde station is dangerously explosive since Mars opposes the U.S. Uranus. 

5. Mercury turns retrograde on the 28th in Taurus. For the next three weeks, avoid making major decisions but stay open to new ideas. This is a good time to alter your routine, clarify your thoughts before speaking or writing, and listen to your inner voice. From the 28th to 30th, Mercury conjoins Vesta, indicating a time to reconsider your financial situation, and consider what has real value in your life.
