It's Mars day and today the Moon moves into Leo. In the days after the Full Moon, it's a good time to reflect on your experiences. What do you think could have gone better? You do have control over what happens you but you need to find the pulse of celestial patterns to get the most out of life. Essentially, this is what astrology is all about: finding the best time to do things. We are now entering the phase of the moon when we are starting to wind down, pass on our knowledge to others and begin making plans for the next New Moon on 20 January, the first new Moon of 2015.

Celebrity Profile: Rowan Atkinson

Rowan Atkinson, also known as “Mr Bean” was born with Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio in 1955. Jupiter in Cancer finds confidence in treating fellow classmates or colleagues as family and usually there is a pronounced interest in History. Natally, Jupiter is only a few arc minutes from being an exact conjunction to Uranus: this would magnify the eccentric nature of Uranus.
In 1983, Atkinson took the main lead in the medieval sitcom The Blackadder as Saturn was square to his Uranus-Jupiter conjunction. Blackadder II came out a few years later after budget concerns were resolved just after transit Jupiter opposed the natal Uranus-Jupiter conjunction in 1985. A distinct pattern emerges: Blackadder the Third (1987) was filmed as transit Jupiter squared the same natal conjunction; Blackadder’s Christmas Carol, Blackadder: the Christmas Years (both in 1988) and Blackadder Goes Forth (1989) were filmed during a series of Jupiter’s semi-square to the conjunction. Blackadder: Back and Forth (1999) was filmed during yet another series of transit Jupiter squares to the conjunction. “Mr Bean”, arguable Atkinson’s most famous creation was unleashed later that year. Thus it can be seen how significant the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction is in his life.
It is interesting indeed that the “Blackadder version of history” was criticised during the start of centenary commemorations of World War I in 2014 as transit Jupiter was in conjunction to his Jupiter-Uranus.
During 2015, both transit Jupiter and Saturn make a series of semi squares to the natal Jupiter-Uranus conjunction and in 2018, transit Jupiter makes a series of square aspects to that point. But in 2018, both Saturn and Jupiter make a long series of oppositions to Jupiter-Uranus. Will Blackadder or Mr Bean be making a comeback?
Even after the stress of yesterday, there still seems to be tension in air. Arguments about over-spending seem to be a particular problem with career ambitions (or lack there of) in a tie for the lead. Romance will heat up again soon. You just need to ride out the last of the storm.
Despite a very good effort on your part, communications with loved ones are strained. The problem seems to lie in your lack of optimism for seeing (what appears to be) dodgy projects. Wobbles do not necessarily indicate a disaster and they can often tell you where you need to fix up. Hang in there.
Disagreements over money seem to threaten to wreck your faith and confidence that everything happens for very good reasons. As the day goes on, you are able to tune into your feelings much better and you will discover what is truly important.
You may still be reeling from the Full Moon and are left with the distinct impression there is so much work to do. By spending a little time thinking about what you are feeling, you can get yourself back on track. You just need to do something a little differently.
You over-sensitive? Never! But there is something pulling at your heartstrings but you can’t quite pinpoint it. You need to take some time to listen to that still, inner voice. Then you need to do something about it. You are needed.
The walking wounded around you are everywhere and it can seem so difficult to decide who needs the most help. As the day goes on, you will be able to sort the kind of needy from the truly needy. You will enjoy putting your efforts where they are most needed.
A very serious talk with the one you love is required today. What do you need to talk about? There seems to be misunderstandings within your affiliations and associations. Do the people within your social groups understand what they are supposed to be doing? And does you significant other
Arguments ensue over who should do what in the workplace. On top of that, there is a lack of consistency over standards and expectations that are slowly driving people mad. A good row can clear the air but it can also cause some people to feel superior over others. Endeavour to treat everyone exactly the same.
Having spent a few days in very deep thought about what you should do next, today you wake up very confident about what needs to be done. There is a quickness in your step, a smile on your face and no job seems too big.
Disagreements over shared resources threaten to undermine your whole day. Don’t want to get involved? Tough! You are a good negotiator and what others need is your guidance—and objectivity—to resolve these disagreements. Otherwise, you’re going to have very sore ears indeed.
Your charm and wit will catch the eye of influential people but you must not continually contradict the very people who can help you to the top. If you want to be a big (or even small) star, you need to consider the feelings and egos of other people.
The care of pets (even the human kind!) seems to be pre-occupying you these days. Helping others is very high on your agenda. In particular, you relish your role as agony aunt. Your advice and sympathy is totally indispensible these days.
