January 6th 2007 Jupiter conjunct Antares

Sunday February 18th 2007 The slender infant crescent Moon occults Uranus (visible telescopically at moon set from the UK around 17:53 to 18:46). The occultation starts with Uranus being occulted by the dark edge of the tiny moon at only 6 degrees of altitude (mid UK). A moment to savour. It ends a few minutes after Moon set.

Saturday March 3rd 2007 Total Eclipse of the Moon 13 degrees Virgo, visible from Europe. Central eclipse 23:21 GMT.

March 19th 2007. Partial solar eclipse at 28 degrees Pisces 02-32 GMT.

Saturday May 12th 2007 The waning crescent Moon occults Uranus ('centred' on the UK) . This 'daylight occultation' is a 'grazing occultation'(for mid latitudes UK) with Uranus touching the lower limb of the crescent Moon around 06-29 GMT.

Tuesday May 22nd 2007 The Moon occults Saturn in daylight (visible telescopically from the UK). Times 19-08 to 20:12. (45 degree altitude for mid UK latitudes).

Wednesday May 23rd 2007 The Moon occults Regulus (daylight grazing occultation 'centred' on the UK around 35 degree altitude around 15-09 GMT).

Monday June 18th 2007 The Moon occults Venus (daylight occultation visible telescopically from the UK around 14-00 to 15-18 GMT).

Tuesday July 17th 2007 The Moon occults Regulus ( daylight occultation 'centred' on the UK 07:44 to 08:22 GMT).

August 14th 2007 Jupiter conjunct Antares

August 22nd 2007 Jupiter and the Moon conjunct Antares

August 28th 2007 Total Lunar Eclipse at 5 degrees Pisces 10-37 GMT

Sept. 2nd 2007 Saturn enters Virgo.

Sept. 11th 2007 Partial Solar Eclipse at 18 degrees Virgo 12-31 GMT

September 11, 2007: The solar eclipse at 18° 25' Virgo opposes Uranus at 16° 38' Pisces, all activating the degree of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction of the mid 1960s. Saturn enters Virgo. Pluto is at the degree of the Galactic Centre. Look for a major battle in the morality wars, as society deals with issues of drug legalisation, genetic tampering, human cloning, Internet controls/taxes, and new technologies that threaten business-as-usual. Mountain Astrologer

Sunday October 7th 2007 The Moon occults Regulus. (A naked eye event from the UK given clear skies around 05-45 GMT at 32 degree altitude).

December 1st 2007 Mars in Opposition.

December 11th 2007 Jupiter conjunct Pluto 28 degrees Sagittarius.

December 18th 2007 Jupiter enters Capricorn.

December 2007: A conjunction of the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, and Pluto near 0° Capricorn opposes Mars retrograde in the first few degrees of Cancer, joined by the Full Moon at 1° 50' Cancer on December 23. This starts the activation of zero degrees of cardinal signs, which are probably the four most sensitive points in the zodiac. Pluto is now at the degree of the 1988 Saturn-Uranus conjunction.

(Mountain Astrologer) .

The agenda for the dynamic astrological run up to Christmas in 2007 is as follows.

Thursday December 20th 2007. Mercury conjunct Pluto 21-54 GMT

Friday December 21st 2007 The Sun conjunct Pluto 00-14 GMT

Saturday December 22nd 2007. Winter Solstice 06-08 GMT. Mercury opposite Mars 18-29 GMT.

Sunday December 23rd 2007. The Sun conjunct Jupiter 05-56 GMT. Moon opposite Pluto 20-26 GMT

Monday December 24th 2007. Moon opposite Jupiter 00-14 GMT. Full Moon 01-16 GMT. Moon conjunct Mars 02-59 GMT. Moon opposite Mercury 07-54 GMT. They opposite Mars 21-47 GMT

On boxing day December 26th 2007 Mars opposes Pluto 19-52 GMT.

Please note that all these planets are aligned to the first couple of degrees of Capricorn and Cancer. A most special time is in store!


Late January 2008: Pluto enters Capricorn for the first time in 247 years. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was during the U.S. revolutionary war. (Pluto was opposite this point, at 0° Cancer, during 1912-1915.) Neptune is still septile Pluto. This is a critical time in the U.S. presidential primary season. Mountain Astrologer

January 26th 2008 Pluto first enters Capricorn.

February 7th 2008 Annular Eclipse of the Sun at 18 degrees Aquarius 03-55 GMT visible only from Antarctica.

Thursday Feb. 21st 2008 Total Lunar Eclipse at 2 degrees Virgo 04-26 GMT visible from Europe.

May 10th 2008 The Moon occults Mars (visible from the UK).

Mid June 2008: The Full Moon at 27° 50' Sagittarius is conjunct Pluto at 0° Capricorn. Mars at 22° Leo opposes the Chiron-Neptune conjunction along the lunar nodal axis. One possibility, with Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius that year, is the formation of local groups specifically focused on self-reliance and prosperity through alternative approaches to food and energy production. Mountain Astrologer

August 1st 2008 Total Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Leo visible from Europe NE N. America, Asia
[Total: north Canada, Greenland, Siberia, Mongolia, China]
. Central eclipse 10-21 GMT

August 16th 2008 Partial lunar eclipse at 25 degrees Aquarius at 22-10 GMT.

November 4, 2008: Election day in the U.S. sees an exact opposition of Saturn and Uranus at 18 58' Virgo-Pisces (the solar eclipse degree of September 2007). This is the first opposition of the cycle that started with their conjunction in 1988 (at 29° Sagittarius). These two planets were last in opposition during 1965-66, with Saturn in mid Pisces and Uranus in mid Virgo. Environmental issues will be huge in this election, and major reforms could be instituted. Mountain Astrologer


There are a total of 6 eclipses in 2009.

2009: The entire year of 2009 features a Chiron-Neptune conjunction in late degrees of Aquarius, exact in February 2010 at 26° Aquarius; this is the first conjunction of these two since September 1945. Jupiter joins Chiron and Neptune in mid December 2009, with an opposing Mars turning retrograde in Leo. Whoever is elected U.S. president in 2008 might now undertake an emergency mobilisation of alternative energy production, if the problem has continued to be swept under the rug. Mountain Astrologer

January 5th 2009 Jupiter enters Aquarius.

January 26th 2009 Annular eclipse of the Sun at 6 degrees Aquarius. Central eclipse 07-59 GMT. This eclipse is visible from the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, Borneo, the East Indies, and the eastern Pacific.

Feb. 9th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse at 21 degrees Leo at 15-38 GMT

May 27th 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 26 degrees Aquarius. First of 3.

July 7th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse 09-39 GMT at 16 degrees Capricorn

July 10th 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 26 degrees Aquarius. Second of 3.

July 22nd 2009 Total Solar Eclipse 02-35 GMT at 29 degrees Cancer. Long, lasts 6m 39s. Visible from East Asia, Pacific Ocean, Hawaii [Total: India, Nepal, China, c Pacific] Central eclipse at 02-35 GMT.

August 6th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse 01-39 GMT at 14 degrees Aquarius.

October 21st 2009 The Moon occults Antares. Visible from the UK

October 29th 2009 Saturn first enters Libra. This residence of Saturn in Libra will bring about very dynamic planetary effects during the period 2010-2011. These few years ahead will most probably have very serious global consequences.

November 15, 2009: The most powerful configurations are beginning. Saturn squares Pluto at 1° 42' Libra-Capricorn, while the Moon and Venus join Neptune and Pluto in a septile pattern. The Sun septiles Saturn as well. Public fears of terrorism or war are accentuated at this time. This Saturn-Pluto square repeats on January 31, 2010 and again in August 2010. These are key dates in terms of oil shortages, oil price hikes, and international co-operation (or lack thereof). The increased use of coal raises new concerns about air pollution and accelerated global warming. Mountain Astrologer

December 21st 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 24 degrees Aquarius. Final of 3.

December 31st 2009 Partial Lunar Eclipse 19:23 GMT at 10 degrees Cancer.


January 1st 2010 Mars in Opposition.

January 15th 2010 Very long Annular Solar Eclipse (7m 6s) at 25 degrees Capricorn, visible from central and east Africa, the southern tip of India and Sri Lanka, Burma and China.

January 18th Jupiter enters Pisces

May 28th 2010 Uranus first enters Aries.

June 5-6, 2010: Things really heat up starting in mid May, as Saturn opposes Jupiter and Uranus. Then, Uranus enters Aries and, a few days later, is joined by the Moon and Jupiter at exactly 0° Aries. Meanwhile, Pluto is at 4°+ Capricorn and Saturn is at 28° Virgo, forming a T-square with the Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus. Mars at 29°+ Leo (conjunct Regulus) opposes Neptune and Chiron. This seems to me to have the potential for a major popular movement (at best) or an armed revolt (at worst). The key is to channel all this energy in constructive ways. Mountain Astrologer

June 6th 2010 Jupiter first enters Aries

June 8th 2010 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 0 degrees Aries, first of 3.

June 26, 2010 Partial lunar eclipse at 5 degrees Capricorn. Central eclipse 11:39 GMT.

The lunar eclipse at 4° + Capricorn conjoins Pluto and activates a grand cross involving the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, the Moon, and Saturn - all within 5° of the four cardinal points. This will be a very important event, for better or worse, with a huge impact on global public opinion. Mountain Astrologer

July 11th 2010 Total Solar eclipse at 19 degrees Cancer 19-33 GMT Visible from South America [Total: South Pacific, Easter Is., Chile, Argentina].

July 30-31, 2010: This marks another intense few days. Mars joins Saturn at 0° 49' Libra, opposing the Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus in Aries and squared by Pluto. Again, large masses of people may be affected by so much planetary energy concentrated near the cardinal points. Since cardinal signs are action-related, there may be a lot of people on the move (demonstrators, troops, refugees). The Mars-Saturn conjunction is on the Mid heaven in Indonesia, China, and the South China Sea, creating conditions for a crisis in that area. Mountain Astrologer

August 6-7, 2010: A cardinal grand cross is formed, involving Jupiter-Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, the Moon in early Cancer, and Venus joining Mars and Saturn in early Libra. The Sun at 15° Leo makes stressful aspects (45°/135°) to the entire grand cross. We'll need to remain calm and balanced to deal with the relentlessly stressful aspects this summer. The electricity grid may be threatened; unusual Earth or weather changes could be part of the picture. Mountain Astrologer

September 9th 2010 Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces

Sept. 19th 2010 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 29 degrees Pisces second of 3.

December 13, 2010: Conditions will have eased up a bit in terms of the cardinal cross, but on this date there is a tight conjunction of Mercury, Mars, and Pluto at 4° Capricorn septile Neptune-Chiron at 26° + Aquarius. Fanatical thinking or extreme acts are possible. Mountain Astrologer

December 21st 2010. Total Eclipse of the Moon in Gemini on the day before the Winter Solstice. Totally eclipsed Moon sets over Europe. (A Total Eclipse of the Moon, occurs within 6 hours of the Winter Solstice moment occurs on December 20th 2029). Central eclipse 08:l7 GMT.


There are a total of 6 eclipses in 2011

Jan 4th 2011 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 27 degrees Pisces. Partial solar eclipse 08:51 GMT at 14 degrees Capricorn.

Jan 22nd 2011 Jupiter re-enters Aries.

April 4th 2011 Neptune first enters Pisces.

April 9, 2011: Uranus is at 0° declination; the last time this happened was in 1968-69. Pluto stations retrograde at 7° 30' Capricorn. The Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter in Aries oppose Saturn in Libra. Neptune has just moved into Pisces. Spiritual renewal and new ideas challenge outmoded structures. Radical new laws are passed and political movements reach critical mass this year. A growing optimism spreads as the energy of the Neptune-Pluto septile winds down. Mountain Astrologer

April 29th 2011 Five planets and the Moon lie within 20 degrees of each other.

June 1st 2011 Partial lunar eclipse 11 degrees Gemini. Central eclipse 21:16 GMT.

November 14th/16th 2011 Saturn conjunct Spica (1st of 3)

November 25th 2011 Partial Solar Eclipse 3 degrees Sagittarius. Central eclipse 06:20 GMT.

Dec. 10th 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse at 19 degrees Gemini 15-32 GMT


2012: Uranus squares Pluto at 7° - 8° of cardinal signs. This is the waxing square of the cycle that started in the mid 1960s, with the conjunction of these two planets in mid Virgo. This square is a symbol of innovation competing directly with the entrenched power elite (corporate power may be challenged in a new and positive way, especially in a U.S. election year). Mountain Astrologer

November 28th 2012 Penumbral lunar eclipse 7 degrees Gemini. Central eclipse 15:33 GMT

December 21st, 2012 A.D., represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what that ancient Maya recognised as the Sacred Tree. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years. It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT.

In the accompanying diagram, the most likely trajectory of asteroid 2004 MN4 is shown as a blue line that passes near the Earth on 13 April 2029. Since the asteroid's position in space is not perfectly known at that time, the white dots at right angles to the blue line are possible alternate positions of the asteroid. Neither the nominal position of the asteroid, nor any of its possible alternative positions, touches the Earth, effectively ruling out an Earth impact in 2029. Based on albedo constraints by Andrew Rivkin and Richard Binzel (MIT), the diameter of the object is about 320 meters. At the time of the closest approach, the asteroid will be a naked eye object (3.3 mag.) travelling rapidly (42 degrees per hour!) through the constellation of Cancer. On average, one would expect a similarly close Earth approach by an asteroid of this size only every 1300 years or so.
