Retrograde Mercury is conjunction Venus at 24 degrees 21 minutes Capricorn at 1.59 pm GMT 29th December 2022.

Clearly expressing your views with those you are socially connected with won’t be as easy as you would like it to be. Repeating what you say so the person you speak to will listen to what you tell them is certainly to be expected. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth the effort, because the feedback you receive will have good intentions. Even if it’s criticism it will be constructive and not malicious. Networking events will be affected by travel delays and misunderstandings that disrupt schedules, which result in plans being rearranged at the last minute.

Mercury at 26 degrees 12 minutes Libra is square Pluto at 26 degrees 12 minutes Capricorn at 1.06 pm GMT 2.06 pm BST 27th October 2022.

A preoccupation or obsession with one idea or one main issue that plays on your mind may end up wasting your time where the products are stress and frustration. Delving into hidden information that you intend on sharing with others should be done with as much consideration as possible to what the consequences may be. A tolerant understanding for the effect of traumatic events in the past or taboo subjects is sought but not easily found. Those who would prefer to keep is buried to avoid acknowledging or confronting them will have the upper hand. This especially applies to those who have traditionally been in a position of power and control, who are not willing to recognise or have a calm and balanced debate about such matters.

An intense and persistent drive of energy can be directed at preparing to transform what you are no longer willing to tolerate. This transit is helpful for discovering what you want to change or regenerate, and how to put together a course of action to make it happen. Starting an immense amount of research without wasting time on distractions will be a lot easier no in order to achieve what you set out to do. Although effort is required, it won’t be as demanding as expected.

Mars at 27 degrees 46 minutes Aries is square retrograde Pluto at 27 degrees 46 minutes Capricorn at 2.08 am GMT 3.08 am BST 2nd July 2022.

Dramatic and destructive action taken by those who are traditionally in a position of power and control will be fought against by those who are fired up to commence battle with the old order. The former may find they are not as strong as they thought they would be in the face of those who resist their domination, so they will have to dig deep to find what resources are available to them. Generally there is a surge of energy that is difficult to direct towards a route where it can’t cause damage in one way or another. It may be necessary to relinquish control to allow a process of regeneration to take place. This can be immensely stressful but could be needed to avoid huge challenges that you would otherwise be battling for a long time. Also there is an increase of explosive anger; either from yourself or from people or during events around you. It’s definitely not the time to make enemies as they can be incredibly aggressive and possibly obsessive in getting their revenge.

Individuals who want to gain more power to do good may find many obstructions that would hinder this purpose won’t get in the way. A deeper meaning to life can be discovered and a wealth of resources is available if you make the effort to seek them. Those who have a belief in the greater good could be supported by those who are conventional, but have a broad and strong influence over a lot of people. People who are domineering and destructive will experience setbacks caused by those who seek justice for the vulnerable.

Those who are strong and sensible enough to be relied upon by those who are vulnerable will be able to offer their assistance. People who are in a position of authority may be expected to take the initiative to protect those who are unsure about how to or are unable to defend themselves. Although there is no clear course of action to take if it’s of great importance to respond to the unknown, it’s best to use common sense and go with the flow in how energy is expended; pace yourself and persevere. Being confrontational won’t work but you can still stand up for yourself if needed. This transit is an odd mix of being able to be ruthless if necessary in expressing assertiveness whilst maintaining a sense of empathy.

Venus conjunction Mars in Capricorn 16th February 2022

Venus is conjunction Mars at 16 degrees 53 minutes Capricorn at 2.29 pm GMT 16th February 2022.

Those who are unattached, and are seriously seeking a potential partner to be with a committed relationship could find they have a stronger drive in their search for a compatible person. The desire to pursue what you want is enhanced and there is the urge to persevere to get it. Personal wealth is the main focus of what is the primary factor to increasing social status. Frivolous spending on luxury items is held back. If a substantial purchase is made then quality is far more important than cheap and cheerful options.

Mars in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus 8th February 2022

Mars at 11 degrees 1 minute Capricorn is trine Uranus at 11 degrees 1 minute Taurus at 2.57 pm GMT 8th February 2022.

It’s almost impossible to forecast what will happen during this transit as far as long-term stability is concerned. Fortunately in an odd way this won’t be a problem. Ambitious actions taken now will create new structures that will withstand the test of time, which will also break away from the restrictions of the past. Extraordinary achievements are supported by those who are enthusiastic about innovation as long as it can be proven to be reliable. Risks can be taken as long as they are calculated risks without being reckless in the urge to initiate change.

Mars in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Pisces 4th February 2022

Mars at 8 degrees 2 minutes Capricorn is sextile Jupiter at 8 degrees 2 minutes Pisces at 1.39 pm GMT 4th February 2022.

A calculated course of action that is driven with perseverance is a great advantage in attaining the high ideals that you have dreamed of. It can be a very good time for business for those who are sensible but ambitions about expanding their reach by using sound judgement. Physical strength may receive a boost where the range of capability is widened through hard work and self belief. Improving muscular strength will have good results. Those who want to win in sporting activities, especially in those that demand long-term training have a higher than average chance of winning. The winners during this transit are unlikely to win due to a fluke.
