In amidst all the recent jaw-dropping events in the world of politics and statesmanship - or is that brinkmanship? - the discovery of twelve new moons orbiting Jupiter may have escaped notice.

These twelve new moons bring the total of known moons surrounding Jupiter to 79. I must admit I had no idea there were so many.

Jupiter Moons

Nine of the new moons form part of a distant swarm of moons orbiting the big red planet in the opposite direction of its spin while two others are part of an inner, closer group spinning in the same direction as Jupiter. There is an ever-present danger of collision.

Although these moons do not form part of astrological interpretation it is a fascinating synchronicity that their discovery was announced a matter of days after Jupiter had resumed direct motion. Typically, information surfaces when a planet ends its retrograde passage and turns direct. A theory we can test out in the next few weeks when Mercury turns direct after a three-week passage in retrograde beginning next Thursday.

23rd Jul 2018 - 29th Jul 2018

July ends in a firework display, figuratively speaking. A total lunar eclipse conjunct Mars squaring Uranus, the revolutionary of the planets, is enough to light up our lives in the best of ways or generate some pretty incendiary situations.All full moons set the stage for an ending, but when they are eclipsed you get endings with knobs on.

I have spent some time in my newsletters discussing the possible effects of this series of eclipses on the Leo-Aquarius axis, and although there is always a wait-and-see element to an eclipse of any description, this particular axis has an exceedingly royal flavour.There are certainly changes going on in the corridors of Windsor Castle, and there will be other European monarchies in a state of flux, however, it may take until the early part of 2019 and the last eclipse in this series to discover quite what.

Cancer: An unexpected birthday celebration may not be the only surprise in store. All new moons open a fresh chapter, but when they are eclipsed they do so with knobs on!


Cooking Under The Stars

An excerpt from Woman&Home magazine...

Penny Thornton learned how to cook at around the same time she was taking astrology classes. Back in the late 1970s, her then-husband was a sous-chef at London's Dorchester Hotel. Then in the mid-90s, Penny, who was living in the US, had a ten-minute daily slot on the Food Network, combining astrology and food.

As Penny explains, "The relationship between astrology and food is based on the ancient belief that all things in the universe are connected. Animals, birds, fish and plants were all 'ruled' by a planet or sign."

Penny's new book, The Zodiac Cooks, embraces her two passions. It's an amusing and informative gastronomic romp through the zodiac alongside delicious recipes. So read on to find out whether you really are suited to spelt...
