Birthday Horoscopes, Numerology, October’s Eclipse, and New Moon/Jupiter in Scorpio
We recently added new features to the site: Birthday Horoscopes, with general predictions for the year ahead, and Birthday Personality Profiles. Because each feature is a large project, birthday content is added pretty much a day at a time. We’ve received quite a few emails from people with birthdays at other points in the year, wondering where the heck their horoscopes and profiles are! They simply haven’t been added yet. My thinking has always been that partial content is better than none, so that is why I didn’t “sit on” what I’ve written so far.
A new online report has been added to the site: the Numerology Report is entirely free. All you need are a birth date and a name, and you get a printable report that includes your life path number, lucky numbers, karmic debt and karmic lesson numbers, your current personal year number, and more. Interpretations of each number are, of course, included.
Last month’s New Moon cycle was a powerful one, as it was a Solar Eclipse, and its focus was on personal relationships. Plenty of people are reporting some epiphanies in their ongoing romances that occurred last month. This month, the New Moon in Scorpio occurs just after Jupiter entered Scorpio as well, and intimacy can be a focus. Even though the New Moon is quite challenged in terms of aspects from Saturn, Mars, and Neptune, it remains a time when we can breathe more depth and vitality into our relationships. I have a friend who told me today that this past month has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride in her year-old partnership. She began the relationship under the Jupiter in Libra influence, and hadn’t explored the partnership’s depths until recently. Interestingly, she talked about the “crises” she had with her partner that coincided with this last New Moon in Libra cycle, and just yesterday felt like they had reached a “whole new level of understanding”–and of course the lunar cycle is drawing to a close today. With the New Moon in Scorpio tonight falling on their composite Venus conjunct Mars in Scorpio, it’s quite safe to guess that this next month will bring the partnership to yet another level of intimacy.

We’ve been expanding the site quite rapidly recently. New tools for forecasting include a handy Retrogrades page, which sums up current and upcoming retrograde cycles of the planets. You can now read about what it means if, for example, Mercury is retrograding and transiting a particular house in your natal chart. Or, if Venus Rx is transiting conjunct your Ascendant, or any other personal point in your chart. Read about Mercury Retrograde Transits, Venus Retrograde Transits, and Mars Retrograde Transits in our Predictive Astrology feature. We now offer some graphs that show the current month’s lunar cycles, lilly strengths, and declinations. You can find all of these tools here: Astrology Tools & Tables.

New Feature on CafeAstrology.com
We’ve just added a service to our site that allows our readers to receive free astrology reports. The Birth Chart report includes some of our original interpretations of natal chart factors and more. The software for this program was created by AstroMart. We have added many of our interpretations to the program, and will continue to add more in the next few weeks. Also included are compatibility, transit, and horoscope reports.

Triple Conjunction involving Mercury, Venus, and Saturn
There have been many new additions to the site in the past few weeks. As well, most of the pages have been updated with our new design. I have been busy writing interpretations of planetary aspects, starting with the Sun and its aspects in the natal chart, and adding them to the site. These interpretations can be accessed from the main Sun page. As I write the interpretations, I am attempting to do them in order–something that I rarely do! Those of you who have followed the site from the beginning are already aware of my tendency to skip around. I still remember writing and adding interpretations of the planets in the signs, and getting emails urging me to finish some of the pages. My policy has been that “some is better than none”. One day, I had the greatest urge to write about Cancer, and the next, I really felt like writing about Libra…and so forth. Those of you with Uranus strong in your charts might forgive me!
At any rate, I am disciplining myself to add interpretations of planetary aspects in logical order. Some of the interpretations are turning out to be more wordy than I originally intended them to be. Again, I am going by my conviction that adding interpretations page by page is better than waiting until the whole set is complete and posting them only at that point. Adding interpretations to the site is not a simple process of “copy and paste” or even plain copying. I am giving thought to each and although they’re pretty much all in my head, verbalizing the interpretations takes a bit of time.
The triple conjunction involving Mercury, Venus, and Saturn is occuring as I write this post, and will still be in effect for some days to come. Some information about its astrological implications can be found in our feature, This Week in Astrology. I chatted with a friend (who is not an astrology “follower”) this morning. She has a number of personal planets in the late degrees of Cancer (where the triple conjunction takes place) as well as her Moon in the late degrees of Scorpio. She told me that she was sitting in the movie theater with a man she has been seeing for about 5 or 6 months, and suddenly a feeling came over her. Up until that point, she hadn’t truly thought about her long-term expectations of this relationship. Well, she hadn’t given it serious thought. As she sat with him last night, she held his hand and a thought–or perhaps better described as a conviction–came over her that she didn’t want to give him up. In other words, it became clear to her in that moment that she felt strongly about him and truly appreciated the relationship. She kept her thoughts to herself, but decided later in the evening to tell him about them. Although Saturn seldom is connected with “sudden” or “out of the blue” events, I believe that the triple conjunction was very much responsible–not that it was some magical event that truly came out of nowhere. Instead, the triple conjunction offered her clarity about a situation that she hadn’t yet formed solid opinions about.

Homolka & Bernardo’s charts
I have heard far too much about Karla Homolka these days, and I am sure there are others who share my sentiments. She and Paul Bernardo committed some gruesome crimes, and part of me tends not to want to give her any more press than she is already receiving. A Hollywood movie, entitled Deadly and based on the crimes, is set to be released in the fall. However, even I was curious about the astrology behind the individuals and the couple (blame it on a research-hungry mind), and I thought I would post their charts on our site for those of you with a similar curiosity. We can never “blame” any part of their charts for what happened – we all have a choice and are responsible for our actions. In other words, I cannot believe that anything in the charts of Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo “explains” their actions.

New Design & Eros
Our new design for CafeAstrology.com is in place, but there are, as yet, quite a few pages with the old design. We are updating them every day, and hope that our readers enjoy the new layout. We think the layout is considerably more intuitive. The whole idea behind the re-design is for our readers to “get around” the site more easily.
Those of you who are not yet familiar with the asteroid Eros and its significance in astrology might want to read our descriptions of Eros in the zodiac signs. Don’t know your Eros sign? Find it quickly in our Eros ephemeris table.

News at CafeAstrology.com
We are busy re-designing the site with the goals of both a more intuitive and visually appealing design. CafeAstrology contains many articles, and the way the site is currently designed, I think readers need to dig in order to find them all. Expect the new design to be up and running some time during the next few weeks. New topics to come include horary astrology, an expanded Predictive Astrology section, and more talk about current transits.
The New Moon Report is currently popular. We update the report a few days before the New Moon occurs. On May 8th (Mother’s Day), the New Moon will be in the sign of Taurus. New Moons are times when we can absorb and reflect upon the energies of the zodiac sign.
