october 23rd—bathing in burgundy

Thursday, October 23rd at around 5PM, the Sun, Venus and Moon together move into the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio, creating a Partial Solar Eclipse at 0°. This marks the answer to the Total Lunar Eclipse earlier this month.

If you have planets or points at the first degrees of the Water or Fixed signs—yep, pay attention!

Regardless, whichever house this activates will be of special importance at this time.

We have been in a delightfully simmering limbo since the eclipse of 8th of October and now there will be somewhat of a release.

I say ‘somewhat’ for this is a New Moon.  And at this time, we are setting intentions for the Full Moon in two weeks.

So, there will be no cataclysmic eruption of energy, but rather the undulating leap frogging of chronological astrological events that are working to rhythmically nudge us toward our necessary futures. The universe is kindly but sternly showing us the way.

Very well.

What exactly does all this Scorpio energy have to offer us?

august 23rd—season of the maiden begins

Saturday the 23rd, the Sun moves from the sign of the Lion to the steadfast Mutable Earth sign, Virgo.  She will Art-Nouveau-Painting-010stay here until late in the evening of September 22nd.  In the astrological chart, she rules the 6th House of work and health and is ruled by the Messenger God, Mercury.

What do you think of when you think of late August?

It is still stupid hot from Summer, but the threat of Fall looms large.  Stores are full of back-to-school paraphernalia and the gardens are brimming as well, with ripening veggies from the season’s labor.

Yes, Virgo is the sign of the harvest, the fullest point of the year.  Now, is the time to reap what was sown months ago.  Now, is the time to go back to learning and put the fun of summer vacation behind us.  Now, is the time to begin preparation for Winter.

Virgo is a mental sign.  Her little brain never quiets.  She is forever evaluating, categorizing, analyzing her environment to make her world function just so.

She is the opportunity to fine tune your world.  She promises clear mental acumen.  She is restless and has the stamina to see the project through.

She is Mutable Earth.  She is stable and resolute, but unlike her fellow Earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn, she is naturally flexible.  Her top priority is getting the job done accurately and she will bend to make it so.

She is the Sun’s last hooray til next spring.  Put her to work and she will pay back ten-fold.

She suffers when not being of service.  Use her.
