it may get a little squirrelly

So, the holiday is tomorrow. We will have quite the cosmic accompaniment for our affairs this year.

hs-2004-45-a-small_webI will give a brief rundown of what they are and then leave everyone to their chosen activities.

Shall we?

The Sun and Venus are both in Sagittarius. And late, late tomorrow, Mercury enters the sign, as well.

Repeat: jovial fire; jovial fire; jovial fire; jovial fire . . .

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.

full moon prepatory cascade

From November the 2nd through the 5th, we have a series of events that will be setting up the Scorpio Full Moon on Thursday, the 6th.

First, Venus sextiles Pluto around midnight on the 2nd, giving a sexy vibe to the chilly autumn night.  The extra hour we obtain from Daylight Savings Time may come in uber handy for the weekend’s galavanting.

WB2_0022_She-was-the-Queen-of-them-allThen at dawn that morning, the Pisces Moon will conjunct Chiron and trine the Venus/Sun Scorpio conjunction.

Lots of Water.

The early A.M. will feel loaded with by-gone wounds. Obsessions and traumas may flare.

Or a transformation may come with the rising first light of day—locking the past firmly in the rear mirror.

Regardless, the Moon moves quick and she will be long gone from the scene by sunset.

the goat goes for a swim

Neptune_Rings1Capricorn Mars will sextile Pisces Neptune on Saturday, November 1st.

The Warrior gets swimming lessons of patience and self-sacrifice from the God of the Sea—such as, reaching the top isn’t as important as HOW you get there. Brusque bureaucracy will demonstrate a tinge of otherworldly compassion.

As a whole, we will have a better flexibility today, for Mutable Pisces will help bend Cardinal Cappy’s staunch discipline.  Making a rather pliable go-get’um attitude that can roll agilely with the punches.

Our sense of how it all works will be heightened, the big picture will be illuminated brightly. The grand scheme will come into focus—a vision the Goat can tuck away for a rainy day.

october 27th—waves crashing

Monday of next week is going to be an emotional one, folks.

Arthur-Rackham-Illustration-016Scorpio Sun conjunct Venus will trine Pisces Neptune and the watery abyss engulfs us in a glamorous mantle.

All the while, the transiting Sagittarius Moon revives the grand-Fire-trine with Leo Jupiter to form a Kite formation along the Libra/Aries Nodal Axis.

Remember, with the Nodal Axis as a player, collective lessons to bolster our future souls are at the forefront.

Fire and Water are the zodiac’s emoters and considering newly ingressed Sun and Venus in Scorpio, the dealings of the day will be serious as a heart attack.

Fiery, sentimental, Water works.

Can you say ‘passion’?

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?

october 3rd—beauty of a day

On  Friday the 3rd, Venus in Libra will inconjunct Pisces Neptune and also, trine the Moon traveling through Aquarius.

splendidnebulaFirst, the inconjunct.

This is the third and final interplay between Aphrodite and the Sea God in their  inconjunct/opposition/quincunx dynamic for the year.  Friday is your make-up test to incorporate the lessons of these two planetary guides.

When Venus and Neptune dance, you are being asked to get in touch with the glamorous side of spirituality.  Neptune is a large outer planet, therefore he acts upon Venus, the faster inner PERSONAL planet.  Venus attracts and Neptune dreams.
