Twenty five years ago tomorrow, the symbol of communist rule over a huge swathe of Eastern Europe fell. At 18.57 hours in a press conference Günter Schabowski announced that the citizens of East Berlin could pass through the infamous wall into the Western half of the divided city unhindered. At that moment the barrier between East and West fell and freedom for the peoples of Germany was assured.

Anyone who has this conjunction or maybe the trine, opposition or square in their own chart will understand the above statement as absolutely true. Anyone who has these planets linking up will have a very strong will, will have tremendous energy and determination at their disposal and you will be driven sometimes by an invisible force to achieve your desires at literally any cost. These people can throw common sense out of the window in the pursuit of a goal. There is a quiet and subtle desire for power as Pluto will drive the need for power below the surface, thus the potential for secret actions and manipulation is high. Here are actions fuelled by jealous rage and a need for ultimate control. These are a couple of really intense days that we are embarking on.
This combination of Mars and Pluto this time around are squared by Uranus, so there is an unpredictable and potentially shocking side to the energy affecting us all. Mars square to Uranus is very accident prone as the planet of energy and action challenged by the planet of disruption. This is a cardinal square too, so the desire to act positively is strong. I can see hugely unexpected occurrences that change the ground rules now, things that will make you sit up and really take notice. Will your desire to control a situation or to take things into your own hands encourage you to take highly unusual steps to achieve what you want? There is so many potential changes and so much tension that can occur under this double square. There could be anger, violence, sexual tension, subtlety, manipulation, jealousy, accidents, revolution and rebellion, brutality, perversity, innovation, invention, the use of power for good and for ill. You can use the energy here to propel yourself into a new dimension, or you can use it to be hugely destructive.
What I will say is that if you have planets in the middle degrees of any of the signs, then you are likely to see or experience some incidents this weekend that could be rather unexpected. It's your choice how you react to the situations that face you and it will be very easy to overreact, to be obstinate or inflexible and this may cost you, so use the energy wisely...

Tomorrow, the Sun and Moon join up together in the same spot in the sky for a brief few hours and as they do the warmth and light from our star will be extinguished and the world directly below will be plunged in to an eerie darkness. How appropriate the that this new moon Eclipse occurs in the very first degree of the sign of darkness and the underworld, Scorpio. This is the last Solar eclipse we will see this year and the last of three consecutive ones we have seen in this sign. A parting gift, a final transformation, this eclipse is the last in this series and I think one where we will finally be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel we have been travelling down.

It's a day when men named Oscar are in the news. The Dominican fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away. He was one of the fashion designers of choice for many rich, powerful and influential ladies, his first real well know client being Jackie Kennedy. His creations became a byword for elegance and beauty and many said that he had a knack for making women look and feel beautiful.
