Geocentric Tropical Zodiac
Koch Houses, True Node
THE SUN IN LEO
Your Sun is in the zodiac sign of Leo indicating that many of us tend to be good-hearted, and have a sunny personality which shines in the company of others. In fact we may find that we love an audience, basking in the attention which comes with being center stage.
THE SUN IN THE 1ST HOUSE
Your Sun is in the 1st House meaning that self-expression is an important aspect of our lives right now. We are determined to have the freedom to explore our own personal interests and make our own way in the world. During this time we need to be aware of the tendency to be somewhat arrogant and selfish and so we may need to stop and consider other people’s rights. On a more positive side, we learn most through our own experiences, rather than relying on the advice of others. In ancient times the Sun was considered particularly strong when in the angular first house of a chart, highlighting our ability to live a hale and hearty life with plenty of energy to ensure that we make an impact on our environment.
ASPECTS OF THE SUN
QUINCUNX NEPTUNE Orb 1°17′ Applying
Thanks to this aspect, many of us will have difficulty coming to terms with the artistic and softer side of our nature. We need to allow ourselves full reign of our imagination and trust our intuition. That is the key to our success in feeling more at peace with ourselves and the world.
THE MOON IN AQUARIUS
While the Moon is in this air sign, we find that we tend to feel secure with intellect rather than emotions. We may be aloof from emotions, or distrust emotions as irrational and unpredictable.
THE MOON IN THE 7TH HOUSE
The Moon is placed in the 7th House suggests that our primary relationship plays a key role in our life, dominating our moods and actions. Some of us in fact may discover that our relationship has run into some emotionally cold waters as this is not a time for “cuddly-wuddliness”. It could also be a time when we discover that our relationship with our significant other is more friendship-based than romantically-based. In either case, we are likely to either adapt our behavior to please our partner, or some of us may even rebel against his or her influence. There is a simple need to reassess our priorities and to work towards a balance between loving compromise and self-assertion.
ASPECTS OF THE MOON
OPPOSITION THE SUN Orb 0°00′ Applying
Today, there is likely to be a bit of an imbalance between our ego and emotions, our assertion and our empathy, and our masculine and feminine natures. This may result in disagreements on the homefront. We will have to work hard to develop harmony between our home and professional lives, our conscious and unconscious personalities, and our mind and feelings. We can accomplish a great deal as long as we don’t allow ourselves to be carried away by conflicts and moodiness.
OPPOSITION MERCURY Orb 8°21′ Applying
Many of us will struggle to make decisions in our lives, unsure whether to follow our feelings or our thoughts; our heart or our head. We may find ourselves doubting ourselves much of the time. The challenge to us is to find a balance between the two.
MERCURY IN LEO
During this transit, we find that we are enthusiastic in our quest for knowledge. We are proud of our learning abilities, and believe in the saying that learning is fun. Beware of a tendency to be a know-it-all.
MERCURY IN THE 1ST HOUSE
Many of us will discover that we have become a bit more curious, constantly seeking information and data on the world around ourselves lately. There is also a strong urge to get out and travel, but not necessarily long distance travel. This is also a time we find ourselves involved in negotiations or contract discussions of some sort.
ASPECTS OF MERCURY
TRINE URANUS Orb 4°12′ Applying
This is a very stimulating transit that makes us feel more alive and awake mentally—if not outright restless (and perhaps sleepless) than usual. Everything we encounter now has an exciting quality to it. The downside is that we need to be mindful that our thinking is a tad lacking in careful forethought and discipline. Therefore, we need to take heed of our intuition to avert some difficulties later.
VENUS IN VIRGO
With Venus here, we tend to seek meaningful relationships with a practical basis. Anyone we partner with during this time we expect to be precise, neat and punctual, and perfect. We enjoy having detailed analytical conversations during this time.
VENUS IN THE 1ST HOUSE
Many of us will have the desire to relate to others, and to make whatever personal compromises are necessary in order to achieve such. In general, this a good time to hang out with friends and perhaps even make a few new ones.
ASPECTS OF VENUS
CONJUNCTION JUPITER Orb 2°23′ Applying
This transit is extremely good for all types of relationships, whether they are professional, personal, social, or intimate. This is a time when we tend to feel optimistic, eager and outgoing, warm and friendly to everyone we meet. We may find that this is an especially lucky time for us on financial levels.
SQUARE SATURN Orb 1°45′ Applying
You have difficulty being assertive in our closer relationships. We fear confrontation and shy away from emotional disputes. Beware of a tendency to think that things are worse than they really are. Be careful not to over-extend or overdo during this time.
MARS IN CANCER
Mars in this sign signals a time to fight for people or causes about which we feel strongly. Many of us are particularly protective of our family. When personally hurt, we find that we are likely to retreat into our protective shells.
MARS IN THE 12TH HOUSE
Our sense of personal power is somehow eroded. We may experience emotional outbursts, seemingly out of the blue. There may also be a tendency to feel a vague sense of loss of direction at times.
ASPECTS OF MARS
TRINE SATURN Orb 3°49′ Applying
This transit blesses most of us with patience and a general willingness to do difficult and exacting or precision-oriented work. Anything that requires great attention to detail is favored now.
SQUARE URANUS Orb 3°57′ Separating
We feel the need to get our enormous energy level under some control and eventually develop self-restraint. This makes us valuable as a leader, usually in a career where our level of courage is appreciated. On the other hand, we may find that we can be at times accident prone.
JUPITER IN LEO
With this transitory influence, we discover that we are more benevolent, generous and fun loving. Many of us may be on an enthusiastic search for creative expression which could extend itself to a desire to have children, or at least enjoy their company.
JUPITER IN THE 1ST HOUSE
There is a tendency for us to have a bit of a larger than life presence and an ability to inspire others. This is a great time to go back to school to learn something entirely new or simply a time to gain new experiences which will be of personal benefit to us.
ASPECTS OF JUPITER
SQUARE SATURN Orb 0°38′ Applying
Under this transit, be careful of a poor idea of our own abilities and a tendency to put ourselves down. Don’t compare yourself to others. Believe in your own abilities. Do not expect recognition from others. Work to reward yourself.
SATURN IN SCORPIO
With Saturn’s transit of this sign, many of us will discover that we have an intense commitment to work and joint enterprises. Resourcefulness and determination both at home and at work are emphasized.
SATURN IN THE 4TH HOUSE
This is an extremely important transit of Saturn. During this time, many of us will focus on our innermost personal and domestic issues. Any problems in these areas will reach “critical mass” and demand our attention. Home repairs, mortgage problems, even caring for our elderly parents may become extremely burdensome and/or troublesome.
URANUS IN ARIES
With Uranus making its way through this sign, such is a period of initiative and spontaneity. It indicates the breaking down of old structures and the emerging of the new.
URANUS IN THE 9TH HOUSE
Many of us will develop unusual and original philosophies. Some of us may rebel against orthodox religion and enjoy sudden bursts of study and foreign travel.
NEPTUNE IN PISCES
While Neptune transits its own sign, many of us will be able to express our spirituality through visions and art. Individuals whom are inspirational teachers, conscious of wholeness tend to gain our attention.
NEPTUNE IN THE 8TH HOUSE
We tend to feel at one with others and have the ability to transcend daily life through metaphysical pursuits. Many more of us may easily sense emotional undercurrents.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN
If you find yourself asking more and more on a political level, “What the hell is going on?” This is the reason for it. With Pluto in Capricorn, do not be surprised with the changes in world government. This is a time to transform old structures into new and enduring ones, some of which will not be pleasant.
PLUTO IN THE 6TH HOUSE
Our daily routine plays an important role in our lives. Unfortunately, we may experience dramatic changes to our health. The challenge in front of us is to recognize the power of the relationship between mind and body.
