why so serious?—sun/venus/saturn conjunct—november 12th – 18th

Currently in the skies, Venus and the Sun are about 4º apart.The-Dragon-with-Seven-Heads

The two were cazimi on the 24th of October, and then the Goddess of Love overtook the Sun shortly before Halloween, although she remains combust at the moment.

On November the 12th, Aphrodite will conjunct Father Time at 25º of Scorpio.  Then on the 18th, the Sun will follow suit while Venus makes her move into gregarious Sagittarius.

The most dramatic day of this week long event will be Friday the 14th, where Venus/Saturn/Sun (all within 5º) will square the Moon and Jupiter in Leo.

If you are in possession of planets or points amongst the last decan of the Fixed signs, especially Scorpio and Leo, this will be a powerful few days for you.

to have and to hold . . . full moon in taurus

Vintage-Old-Book-Illustration-012Thursday, November 6th, at around 4:30 PM CST, is the Full Moon.

Since the New Moon Eclipse, we have seen Mars change signs, Mercury turn direct, the Sun and Venus trine Neptune and the Moon gather all manner of power to get to the 14th degree of Taurus.

Ah, Scorpio Sun opposing the Taurus Moon—Fixed Water Ego against Fixed Earth Instinct—2nd House to 8th House . . .

The axis between these two lovelies is symbolic of what you have and what others share with you.

Personal possessions and joint property.

This isn’t just money—nope.

This is loyalty, self-worth, family, secrets, endurance, power, libido, shelter from the storm, obsession, comfort, intimacy, legacy, compulsion, sensuality, persistence, strength of will, passion, determination, sustenance, values, ambition . . .

The salt of the Earth is mined from this polarity.

Fixed signs have the ability to remain while all else withers back to dust. Stamina to see the job to completion. The innate drive to build an empire.

Whichever house 14º Taurus occupies is where you have the opportunity to shed Luna’s sunlight on the seedling intentions planted on the 8th. To lay to rest any demons Chiron or Pluto unearthed during this very week.

To give the  battle call, rally the troops and engage life with the full propriety of resolve and grit.

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 25th & 26th—lady leo has suiters a’calling

Venus is about half way done with her yearly summer trip through the fire sign of Leo.  The beginning of this coming week many suiters will come a’calling on Miss Venus.  Let’s she how she may respond to their advances.

On August 25th, the Goddess of Love will inconjunct the Maverick from Pisces.  Venus is attraction and our sense of worth related to how attractive we feel and how well we attract financial security.  Chiron is a wound that never heals.  His energy is of helping others with precisely the injuries he cannot recover fully from.  Together, we get to question our value in regards to the house Venus is transiting.  She is pulling healing Chironic energy to this area.  With Chiron, ‘healing’ may be as simple as a minor change in perspective.

Sounds easy, but inconjuncts are tricky— to get the rewards you have to manually adjust.  Leo is the lion, but here she is the bashful fluffy kitty and any body in Pisces is undoubtedly on the introverted side.  Think of 2 shy teenagers with crushes, who have to force themselves to even smile at one another.

Then on Tuesday, charming attention loving Leo Venus will square steamy Mars/Saturn in Scorpio.  The same day she will also be in trine aspect with electric Uranus from Aries.

summer’s fixed full supermoon

nasaharvestmoonAugust 10th will give us an Aquarius Full SuperMoon.  For the last 2 weeks, strength has been building and now it is time for taking stock of how far we’ve come.

Full Moons highlight the axis between the Sun and Moon.  They allow you to observe more clearly what is usually hidden by metaphorical darkness.  These cyclical oppositions can be viewed as a bridge between the conscious (Sun) to the subconscious (Moon).  This monthly event points to the culmination of intentions made roughly 2 weeks prior on the New Moon.  It is a heightened time of possibility, where seeds planted are blooming into beautiful flowers.  We can reap what we have sown.
