Later today, the Sun and Venus will move into Scorpio and on Saturday the 25th, two additional majors shifts occur. Mars ingresses from Sagittarius to the 10th sign of Capricorn while Mercury begins direct motion in Libra.
Cardinal, baby. Cardinal.
Mars in Capricorn is steady and ambitious. The freedom loving vibe of Sagittarius is exchanged for the rigors of status, materialism and focus.
When the Warrior dons the mask of the Goat, the aim is self-motivated mastery. There is little desire to blaze one’s own trail, for the impetus is to build on tradition, work one’s way to the top of established structures. To leave an enduring legacy.
The Goat is level-headed, tenacious and self-controlled at best and cold-blooded, obstinate and dour at worst. They are skillful at the long term strategy but can run the risk of over cautious speculation.
Our dear Cappy Soldier is attracted to power which is a potent aphrodisiac and like all Earth signs, his is a sensual, strong libido. Combine this with the current positions of Sun and Venus in carnal Scorpio and the atmosphere steams up all around!!!
While in the 10th sign, the God of War will interact in major aspect with all six of the outer planets. Lots of hobnobbing with the big wigs on his agenda—just as the Goat desires.
On the same day, our dear Mercury, begins direct motion at 16º Libra. He has been retrograding since October 4th and will remain in Libra until the 8th of November. The Winged Messenger will finally move out from the retrograde shadow on the 10th at 2º Scorpio.
Mercury Direct marks the final sweep along the last half of the Relational 7th sign. We should find it easier now to incorporate all the lessons learned while Mercury once again occupies this slice of the zodiac. Thinking as a team; the art of the diplomatic debate; the charming necessity of ‘playing devil’s advocate.’
By the time the God of Thieves gets back to Scorpio, the Sun and Venus will be fully entrenched in the dark Underworld and Mars will be dueling with its Lord from Capricorn. Halloween may be over by then but the macabre ambiance of the heavens will be without a question palpable.
