“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident In the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”~ Rainer Maria Rilke

LOVE AND DREAM

Monday, November 13, 2017:

There are two significant transits that are exact on Monday. At 3:15 AM EST, lovely Venus joined with expansive Jupiter at 7° Scorpio. Venus represents all that we highly value, including love, things of beauty, and money. Jupiter represents enthusiasm and optimism. As they join together in the intensely deep sign of Scorpio, love and passion enlarge. Your desire for love and all things of value deepen with passion.

Keep in mind that Venus is a Morning Star for only a short time longer. Over the next few days, go out before sunrise and watch as Venus and Jupiter come over the horizon together, just before sunrise. Rejoice as appreciation and confidence of life and love expands.

Given that the Moon is in practical Virgo throughout the day, you feel more sedate about all of this than you would otherwise.

At 5:47 PM EDT, with mental Mercury squaring illusory Neptune, your dreams push against your practical mind and your ideas are likely to be more inspired than practical. Allow yourself to dream and to love.

At 6:27 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra. If you have a partner or a love interest, ignore the fact that is Monday and make significant contact. Go out to a nice restaurant or light the candles at home.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:46 AM EST until she enters Libra at 6:27 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

MAINTAIN AWARENESS

Tuesday, November 14, 2017:

The Moon is in charming, refined Libra throughout the day, creating an atmosphere where you long for social niceties, time with friends or partners, and the experience of artistic beauty. You will want to be with your best friend or your sweetie, functioning from a place of interdependence and diplomatic harmony.

However, it can be a problem if you offer yourself too freely to the desires and whims of others. It may be difficult to choose a direction or make a decision on your own or for your highest good. Be careful not to allow yourself to be pulled in a direction that is not right for you. Maintain awareness.

If you have apologies to make, this is a good day for that, just be sure you don’t throw yourself under the bus in the process. Maintain self care as the top priority.

 

SELF-CARE IN THE FACE OF UNEASE

Wednesday, November 15, 2017:

Church Tower in Zeeland by Pier Mondrian via Wiki Media

The normally diplomatic charm that comes with the balanced Libra Moon is likely to feel challenged by power dynamics in the early morning and unpredictable events in the evening.

The Moon forms a challenging square to power-hungry Pluto in the very early hours while you slept; you may wake with uncomfortable dreams and feeling of being out of sorts. The normally peaceful Libra Moon then opposes defiant Uranus at 6:37 PM EST. You may notice throughout the day a sense of unease.

Keep in mind that self-care must be your top priority, not in a selfish manner but because you cannot be of service or help to others if you are not well taken care of. Remember, the warning when you fly in any commercial airplane. Make sure to get your own air-mask secured before helping another.

At 7:51 PM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to stabilizing Saturn. This can bring your energy back to center with calmness and dedication.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:51 PM EST until she enters Scorpio at 3:19 AM EST on Thursday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

SWEET PASSION

Thursday, November 16, 2017:

When you wake up on Thursday morning, you can set aside the diplomacy and charm of the previous few days. The Moon has left graceful Libra behind and will spend a few days in transformative Scorpio, deepening and intensifying your emotions and deepening your connections.

At 10:20 AM EST, lovely Venus, also in mysterious Scorpio, forms a flowing trine aspect to elusive Neptune. Your dream of intensity and depth in a loving partnership is alive and well. The cycle between Venus and Neptune began in early January of 2017; did you begin a new vision of partnership at that time? The full view of that vision should have been clear in late September and now you are ready to reap the benefits of the work you have put into the development of this dream or you may choose to easily release it.

At 7:03 PM EST, the intense Scorpio Moon joins with expansive Jupiter at 8° Scorpio. Thursday is an evening meant for passionate and sweet connections.

 

WORDS SUPPORT NEW GROWTH

Friday, November 17, 2017:

Friday’s powerful Scorpio Moon supports the continued intensity of your deeply passionate emotions. The Moon makes lovely connections to imaginative Neptune, loving Venus, and empowered Pluto. Allow yourself to dream big about the power of love.

Your deepest sensitivities of passion and love are given an opportunity to be fully expressed as Mercury forms a positive sextile aspect to Mars at 9:24 AM EST. You may find that your mind is quick and active. Thoughts that may have been previously difficult to express come easily on Friday.

It is time to take action on your thinking and put your mind to the task of saying what needs to be expressed. Allow your words to match your actions.

On Saturday morning, we come to the Scorpio New Moon. What you are able to say now will support the growth of the seed of transformation you will want to plant at the New Moon.

SCOPRPIO NEW MOON – PLANTING SEEDS OF DEEP UNDERSTANDING

Saturday, November 18, 2017:

The profoundly intense Scorpio New Moon is exact at 6:43 AM EST. Every New Moon represents the end of one 28 day lunar cycle and the beginning of another. The New Moons occurs when the Sun and the Moon are at the same degree of the same sign of the zodiac.

At the beginning of the cycle, the highly emotional Moon absorbs energy and initiative from the Sun. The New Moon is the best time to begin something new, to make a fresh start, turn over a new leaf, or begin a new plan or project.

At the Scorpio New Moon, it is time to begin something of depth, passion, and something with the potential of profound transformation. The time between the New Moon and the Full Moon is called the waxing phase and lasts from November 18th to December 3rd when we reach the next Full Moon.

As you prepare this new beginning, it is appropriate to release whatever you must in order to make room for deep new growth. Consider what you need to leave behind as you plant a seed for profound deep understanding.

Don’t neglect you New Moon ritual. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what transformational changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle.

Wait and perform your New Moon ritual on Sunday or Monday.

For your Scorpio New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding passion, depth, and profound transformation. This is the perfect time to start a conversation about finally getting your advance directive set up, planning for your parents elder care, or deepening your sexual connection with your partner.  Perhaps, you can arrange the time and space to begin to more deeply understand your own needs and fears around these topics.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 26° Scorpio, it will help you clarify where to direct this conversation. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that is calling for intense depth of transformation.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, when you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Scorpio New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of deep intense transformation. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

At 1:59 PM EST the Moon enters carefree Sagittarius encouraging us to live our lives with pleasure and joy even as we dig into the reality of this deep human challenge called Life.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:43 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 1:59 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

FACE REALITY

Sunday, November 19, 2017:

With the Moon in light-hearted Sagittarius, I’m sure you were hoping for an emotionally carefree day. However, at 7:15 AM EST, Mars (the planet of impulsive anger and frustration) forms a challenging square to dark, coercive Pluto bringing potential tension and difficulties. Watch for power struggles in your own life and the ongoing dramas in the culture.

If you have been trying to please others without taking care of yourself, this could well be a time when you will be forced to look at the reality of your situation and face reality directly. The cycle between Mars and Pluto began in mid-October of 2016. Consider what began at that time and you will see that action must be taken now to move yourself or the situation forward for a better outcome than the one currently in the crosshairs.

At 12:52 PM EST, as the Sagittarius Moon forms a challenging square to elusive Neptune, you may be tempted to put the blinders on. Allow some time to rest and dream. Meditate, listen to soothing music, even watch a movie… don’t turn to booze as that will move you toward suffering rather than toward growth.

CURIOSITY IN COMMUNICATION

Monday, November 6, 2017:

Monday presents us with relatively calm but fully engaging day. The Moon is in inquisitive, perspective Gemini. Allow yourself to maintain an open attitude toward all the folks you encounter. Ask questions, encourage an open exchange, and share your unique perspectives with others. In all of this, show a deep level of respect and curiosity.

At 9:58 PM EST, the Gemini Moon opposes stabilizing, duty-bound Saturn. Go to sleep early enough and you won’t feel the heaviness that is often a part of this serious energy.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND DEEP CONNECTION

Tuesday, November 7, 2017:

At 5:45 AM EST, the Moon enters protective, sensitive Cancer allowing the general emotional state of the day to turn inward. Shortly thereafter, Venus, the planet of deep, personal values, enters the powerful waters of Scorpio where she joins with both Jupiter and the Sun.

Over the coming days, Venus reaches out toward Jupiter, allowing the depth of passion and love to deepen and release. On November 13th, they will join together at 7 degrees Scorpio, beginning a new cycle of expanding the intensity of deep love and connection.

At 3:48 PM EST, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. Allow deep love, connection, and prosperity to flow. Spend money, create art, and give love.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:40 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:45 AM EST. LOL! Five whole minutes; you will probably be sleeping or brushing your teeth!

 

 

ALLOW THIS SNAG TO PASS

Wednesday, November 8, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de L’Epicerie by Camille Pissaro via Wiki Media

Wednesday morning brings a sense of belonging to your situation. Whether you spend your day at work, at home, alone, or in community there is a sense that you belong.

At 10:06 AM EST, that sense may hit a snag as someone in the environment may push an agenda or try to hold power or control over you. This is a simple Moon transit and is likely to be rather subtle and won’t last long. If you pay attention, you will, however, notice it. Perhaps, it is an internal thing where you are the one pushing the agenda or holding power over another. Go inward and check your own level of integrity.

In the very early hours of Thursday morning, the Cancer Moon also has a challenging aspect to unsettling, exciting, and sometimes defiant Uranus. Get to bed early and allow these energies to pass without distress. No early morning tweeting please! 🙂

 

 

BEGIN YOUR PLAN FOR 2018

Thursday, November 9, 2017:

Depending on how early you get up on Thursday morning, you may or may not encounter ongoing sensitivity from the past few days. At 7:30 AM EST, the Moon leaves emotional Cancer behind to enter exuberant Leo. You will be able to set aside that sensitivity and open yourself to a more generous and playful state of self-expression.

Another early morning event occurs at 7:12 AM EST, with the passionate Scorpio Sun forming a sextile aspect to subversive, transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto (an annual cycle of empowerment or destruction) began on January 7, 2017.

As you prepare for the new cycle, which will begin in January of 2018, consider what you will need to release as you prepare for the next cycle. Simply stated, this as an important time to consider what needs to be released and to begin to plan for the new cycle ahead. Yes, begin to envision your personal intentions and strategies for 2018!

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:15 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:30 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A NIGHT FOR SELF-EXPRESSION

Friday, November 10, 2017:

I think you can anticipate a pleasant, even fun, morning. Get to work early, engage with others; show-up as your most authentic self while holding space for others to feel safe in their full personality expression as well. Folks will probably be feeling fairly positive and upbeat as they prepare for the weekend ahead.

Late afternoon may bring a bit of a slump as we reach the Third Quarter Moon phase at 3:37 PM EST. With the Sun in intensely private Scorpio and the Moon in playful, expressive Leo, there may be a conflict in how to move forward. Allow any stress to pass by observing without reacting to difficult (internal or external) interactions. Release and move forward, this is simply a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you do not engage with it.

If you are hoping for any party type activities, Friday is your night. Go to the theater, go dancing, engage with others in a big way, and enjoy playful expressions of all sorts.

Saturday night will be best suited for quieter endeavors.

PLAN FOR MAGIC

Saturday, November 11, 2017:

Start Saturday off with simple pleasures, a low-key yoga class, brunch with friends, or a walk in the woods. Whatever you choose to do early in the day, make sure you have no agenda other than enjoyment. Other energies and ideas are rattling around in your head through the morning hours but allow them to be non-obtrusive while you simply enjoy the morning.

Saturday’s flowing trine to inspirational Uranus brings focus to the afternoon as you are provided with the ability to explore new ideas and unusual innovations. Nail these ideas down, bring them into reality as you make definitive goals on which to build your most inspiring, inventive ideas.

Once the Moon enters industrious, efficient Virgo at 11:42 AM EST, commit those goals to paper. Sign and date your goal statements, revisit your statement regularly and allow magic to occur.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:56 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 11:42 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

PRACTICAL DREAMS

Sunday, November 12, 2017:

Sunday may bring minor challenges but they are rather sweet challenges. 🙂

The Moon is in highly practical Virgo throughout the day, encouraging you to spend time on analytical or organizational projects. Perhaps, you simply need to do laundry and clean the house.

However, at 8:24 AM EST, the orderly Virgo Moon makes an opposition to dreamy, fanciful Neptune. With this aspect in play, you may want to open a bottle of champagne while you clean the house and do the laundry! Perhaps, you can take a break from the work to watch a movie, meditate, or simply rest and dream. A dreamy but analytical organizational day!

At 7:04 PM EST, when the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to transformative Pluto, you can dive into gratitude and the depth of empowerment you are developing as you grow in self-understanding.

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide.

DEEP MIND; OPEN HEART

Monday, October 30, 2017:

With three planets in the private, introspective sign of Scorpio, we find ourselves deep in the season of mystery and depth. Work with the depth of your thoughts this week as Mercury, the planet of the mind, leaves Scorpio behind on Sunday to enter Sagittarius. Mercury in Sagittarius helps us gain perspective on the depth we are currently attempting to understand. For now, allow your thoughts and communications to work in the private depth of transformation. Consider where in your own chart Scorpio resides and know that you must go deep in contemplation in this area of your life.

If you want clarity, consider scheduling a consultation with me (Laurie of Astrolore).

Monday actually presents a lovely, dreamy day. Your intuition is likely to be far more powerful than your ambition. It may be a good day to stay home from the office and give yourself some alone time for meditation or inner contemplation.

On Monday morning, the fanciful Pisces Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to both the all-powerful Sun and expansive Jupiter. Your imagination and your mystical nature are heightened; remember that what you dream you are able to create.

At 5:33 PM EDT, the spiritual Pisces Moon joins with elusive Neptune, bringing you deeper into the realm of the surreal and the inspirational. This is a great evening to spend in silent meditation or enjoy a candlelit dinner and a long slow film.

Practice compassion in all your encounters on Monday; it will come easily and you will learn how to ‘go there’ even when the planets are not supporting it!

 

 

DEEP IMAGINATION

Tuesday, October 31, 2017:

As you continue into the week, Tuesday brings more of the same, encouraging you in internal self-reflection and open imagination. Your connection to deep divinity, and original insights remain strong.

The problem is only in how difficult this can be if you are in a job that wants the focus to always be on ambition and hard focused work. If your workplace allows a celebration of Halloween on Tuesday, this will improve the day significantly. Tuesday is a great day to play with deep and imaginative characterization. Encourage those around you to engage in fanciful play.

At 1:22 PM EDT, when the Pisces Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Mercury, your communications will be easily heard and positively received.

At 5:08 PM EDT, with the Moon forming a challenging square to authoritative Saturn, you may have to put your creativity and fun aside as you receive a wakeup call of seriousness. On Wednesday, you will need to push forward with more focus and assertiveness as the soft Pisces Moon gives way to the assertive demanding Aries Moon.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:08 PM EDT until she enters Aries on Wednesday morning at 2:43 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

TAKE INDEPENDENT ACTION

Wednesday, November 1, 2017:

Woods of Ashokan by Thomas Worthington Whittredge via Wiki Media

When you start the day on Wednesday, you will notice that the mood has shifted rather dramatically from dreamy and imaginative to “All fired up!”. You certainly won’t want to lay around and dream any longer! It is time to take action, preferably on a new plan, with vitality and drive. You may feel edgy and restless but with a powerful spark of courage and motivation. You are ready to move forward without restraint.

At 1:42 PM EDT, when the Aries Moon opposes aggressive Mars, you may notice that you have excessive energy, anger, or frustration. The best way to keep this energy from getting you into trouble and to move it out of your system is to engage in direct physical activity. No dreamy laying around on Wednesday and it won’t help to engage in team sports either! When the Moon is in impulsive Aries, you must move that energy independently of others. Go for a run, a bike ride or go sky diving!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) in the very wee hours of the morning; she enters Aries at 2:43 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

PAY ATTENTION

Thursday, November 2, 2017:

Don’t neglect your meditation practice on Thursday morning. The forceful Aries Moon that provided powerful energy to take action and move forward on Wednesday, now has difficult conversations with destructive Pluto, lovely Venus, and unsettling Uranus. It will probably work best if you can spend time on your own as your frustration with others- and theirs with you- could create difficulties in your relationships. Allow transformative depth, unimaginable beauty, and shifting realities to move you forward.

At 5:56 PM EDT, Saturn forms a challenging square to the planet Chiron, which represents our deepest wound and our ability to heal that wound. With this aspect in play on Thursday, consider integrity and grow in your own healing work. Put your attention on your health giving path, understand that there is still work to be done to bring yourself to the height of emotional health that will enable you to be of healing service to others. Treat yourself and others with the deepest respect, integrity, and kindness. You are doing your work. Pay attention.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:03 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 5:46 AM EDT on Friday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DREAM AND IMAGINE

Friday, November 3, 2017:

In the early morning hours of Friday, Venus forms a sextile aspect to mature Saturn. This simply suggests the possibility to stabilize your relationships or deepen your understanding of your own values at this time. This may involve releasing something that no longer works, not in a difficult way, you may be simply given a nudge.

By the time you wake up Friday morning, the Moon has also entered Taurus which takes the edge off the possible anger and frustration from the last few days. It also encourages you to connect with beauty and your sensual physical body.

At 3:22 PM EDT, the intense Scorpio Sun forms a lovely, supportive trine aspect to Neptune the planet of our dreams. This is lovely. However, least I paint too sweet a picture of this day, we must look at the fact that in the very early hours of Saturday morning Venus, planet of our values, love, and beauty, opposes unsettling and inspirational Uranus. You will certainly encounter this on Friday as well.

Don’t let the dreaminess of Neptune prevent you from looking deeply at the changes that have been occurring and will now come fully into view. You may not like what you see, but see it you will. Saturday morning’s Full Moon will see to that!

The Taurus Full Moon is exact while you sleep at 1:23 AM EDT on Saturday. You may choose to hide behind the sweetness of Neptune but life as we know it is shifting in ways we can not avoid.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) in the very wee hours of the morning; she enters Taurus at 5:46 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

TAURUS FULL MOON SEEKS COMFORT

Saturday, November 4, 2017:

In the very early hours of Saturday morning, Venus, the planet that represents your ability to form partnerships and develop your truest values opposes defiant, non-conformist Uranus. Be aware of any decisions you make regarding your relationships and how you spend and use your resources and money.

This suggests a lot of intensity on Saturday and yet this challenging aspect is quickly followed by the steadfast Taurus Full Moon. This brings our attention back to the Libra New Moon on October 19th. Whatever conversation or circumstance you began regarding love or partnership at that time is worth looking back at now to see what has developed over these past two weeks.

Your experience of Saturday will largely depend on where the Full Moon lands in your personal birth chart and where the aspect between Venus and Uranus lands as well. You may feel pushed and pulled in different directions. On the one hand, the Full Moon is showing you your need for consistent, predictable patience and deliberation. On the other hand, Venus and Uranus are asking for excitement or adding their flavor through unusual epiphanies or run-away anxiety.

I think the best way to deal with this dichotomy is to maintain a level of full awareness. Don’t expect either of these energies to rule the day. Make room for deep, sensual connection and stability along with epiphanies and shifting perspectives. This is certainly not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of day.

By the time the evening comes along, you should be able to relax into the sweeter pleasurable side of Taurus. If possible, stay home Saturday evening and put candles on the table and enjoy quiet connection with self and loved ones.

 

 

IDEALISTIC GROWTH AND SOCIAL PLEASURES

Sunday, November 5, 2017:

At 6:27 AM EDT, the Moon enters inquisitive, curious Gemini. After the past few days, you probably have a lot you’d like to talk about. Make plans to go out for brunch with trusted friends. Keep in mind that they probably have also had an interesting few days and have plenty to talk about themselves. Make it a point to give everyone room to speak all that they need to! A verbal emotional cleansing is in order.

At 3:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the deep waters of Scorpio behind to enter uplifting Sagittarius; you may want to make that a very late brunch or simply extend it into afternoon coffee. Mercury is the planet of the thinking and communicating mind.

All that you have kept undercover while Mercury was in Scorpio (since October 17th) is now ready to be exposed. Encourage and allow your mind to turns toward expansion and growth over the coming weeks.

Mercury will remain in philosophical Sagittarius for an unusual length of time due to the his retrograde period between December 3rd and December 22nd, staying in Sagittarius until January 11, 2018.

Sunday should be a great day all around. Make it social and invite others to engage with idealism, fun, learning, and growth.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:28 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 6:27AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

WELCOME THE SUN TO POWERFUL SCORPIO

Monday, October 23, 2017:

After we fall asleep on Sunday night and long before we awake Monday morning, the Sun makes its annual ingress into the intensely deep waters of Scorpio. We all recognize this time of year; we feel it in our bones.

Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, the darkness comes earlier each day. The shops are full of goblins, witches, black cats, and ghouls. You will notice that gravestones are cropping up on the neighbor’s lawns. Everyone, from old to young, is encouraged to prepare for the descent into darkness and to face it head on. Scorpio’s reputation is not an easy one!

In order to come out on the other side of darkness, we must go deep, we must encounter our own shadow, and we must face the inevitability of death. When we are able to do so, we are gifted with a transformation of perspective; we become the Phoenix – the beautiful, mystical bird, rising renewed from the ashes of the life left behind.

Scorpio shows us that avoiding the issues of darkness, depth, and death does not serve us. In order for the growth and transformation suggested in Scorpio and the rising of the Phoenix, we must face and transform our darkest shadows.

The Moon is in Sagittarius throughout the day easing us into this profound shift in seasonal energies. Allow the ease even as you feel pulled toward the depth.

 

DEEPENING INTROSPECTION

Tuesday, October 24, 2017:

On Tuesday, you must begin in earnest to adjust to the deepening introspection of this Scorpio season. Both Mercury (the planet of our thoughts, ideas, and communications) and Jupiter (the planet of expansion, philosophy, and understanding) preceded the Sun into this powerful and passionate sign.

No matter how much the Sagittarius Moon may want to keep the day on the lighter side, there is no denying the intensity under the surface. Allow the idealistic, wise Sagittarius Moon to expand your understanding of the deeply hidden issues that are being revealed in your personal life, your community, and in the culture around you.

Notice those in your inner circle of friends and neighbors, pay attention to those you rarely notice, the service providers who bring your food and check out your groceries. Each person you encounter has a profound inner life. Acknowledge their humanity with sincere eye contact and kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:45 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:13 PM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

PLAN FOR FUTURE STABILIZATION

Wednesday, October 25, 2017:

Autumn Landscape by Harald Sohlberg via Wiki Media

With the Moon in Capricorn when you awake on Wednesday morning, you find yourself in a general atmosphere of seriousness. You are aware of your responsibilities, commitments, and the areas of your life that may hold you earthbound.

Throughout the day, the stern Capricorn Moon forms sextile aspects to the deeply intense Scorpio Sun, expansive Jupiter, and dreamy Neptune. This suggests that today is an excellent time to make long term plans that will build more structure and stability into your life. Setting goals designed to create the life you desire through hard work and prudent development is a great way to use the energies of this day.

You won’t want to waste your precious time, attention, or resources on frivolous issues. You are able to see the reality of your situation and understand the steps available that will assist you in moving in the direction of your desires. Even in the midst of this cautious, serious day, you are able to see the possibilities of setting the steps that will support the forward motion of your life. Pay attention to your own integrity and make plans for future stabilization and growth.

With the sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 7:56 PM EDT, save the evening hours for dreaming of the results of all those plans!

 

CLARITY AND EXPANSION

Thursday, October 26, 2017:

The Moon continues through authoritative, mature Capricorn on Thursday. However, her relationship with the other planets is not quite as friendly as it was on Wednesday.

At 6:50 AM EDT, the Moon joins with powerful Pluto, pushing you to begin the day with deep contemplation of powerful issues or difficult power dynamics. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will not last through the whole day but may make the early-morning challenging.

Your confidence grows as the Sun joins with wise Jupiter at 2:09 PM EDT. This begins a one year cycle of expanding awareness through idealism and understanding. This is happening in the powerful transformative sign of Scorpio, the amplification may reveal much of what has been keep hidden in the depths of our awareness and hidden in our culture. Watch for more information on issues that result from the rampant misogyny in our world and the deep wounds we carry from what is held in darkness.

Where in your own life does a light need to be brought to what has been kept in darkness? Being courageous enough to shine a light into dark corners can bring expansion and healing into all those areas that have held such darkness. However, remember that we all are victims of misogyny, understanding and kindness are always appropriate… along with clarity and truth.

 

INTEGRITY IN PARTNERSHIP

Friday, October 27, 2017:

At 8:59 AM EDT, the Moon leaves the serious nature of Capricorn behind to enter the quirky, innovative sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius Moon will be with us throughout the weekend, so as you make plans for the coming days, keep in mind that it is a weekend meant for community building. Consider the importance of adding your voice to issues of humanitarianism and freedom.

At 6:23 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Square moon phase. Take time to consider the seeds that you planted at the New Moon last weekend and take action to push that process forward.

At 11:20 PM EDT, loving Venus forms a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This will have a profound impact on the entire weekend so plan ahead. You may encounter energies that are deeply challenging to your closest partnerships or financial concerns; often, those issues are deeply entwined.

If you are involved in a healthy relationship, this can bring your relationship to a new level of connection and depth; although there will likely be some struggle to get there. If there are unhealthy power dynamics, this could signal the beginning of the end to the partnership. Remember, this does not only impact romantic or domestic partnerships but also business relationships and close friendships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions with others, romantic and financial.

Shortly after, at 11:24 PM EDT, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Pluto. You will do well to utilize this opportunity to speak-up and make your needs clear. Make sure your words are laced with kindness.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:59 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

RELATIONSHIP TRANSFORMATION

Saturday, October 28, 2017:

Late Friday night, we had two significant transits that will be strongly impacting Saturday.

Lovely Venus, the planet of all that we most dearly value, formed a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This may profoundly impact your closest partnerships, love relationships, or financial concerns. Issues of love and money are often deeply entwined. In your loving connections, this may bring deep conversations and shifting dynamics that may deepen your love connection profoundly. However, if you are in a partnership that is unhealthy, cracks may appear at this time that will widen the gulf between you unless you are willing to do the hard work necessary.

You probably won’t see this shift in sibling or parent/child relationships but in romantic or domestic partnerships, friendships, or business partnerships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions; look inward.

Mercury also forms an aspect to Pluto, in this case, a sextile, encouraging you to speak up in a way that is kind and yet, expresses your deepest needs and concerns.

The Moon continues through Aquarius on Saturday allowing you to remain calm and dispassionate, somewhat removed from the difficulty engendered by the conversation between Pluto and Venus. The Aquarius Moon helps us to be able to utilize the opportunity to say what needs to be said without getting carried away in stress or difficulty. Speak your mind with kindness and without too much attachment to the outcome.

 

ACCEPTANCE AND PROCESS

Sunday, October 29, 2017:

Sunday morning finds you in a state of acceptance as the objective Aquarius Moon forms a sextile to stable Saturn at 9:02 AM EDT. You will awake in consideration of the changes the past few days have brought to your love relationship or your connection to other deep values in your life (financial concerns or creative endeavors). Consider and accept reality as you plan the appropriate steps forward.

At 12:22 PM EDT, with the Moon sextile inspirational Uranus, you can tap into the anticipation of a new way of being. Think outside the box of conventional expectations. You can create your life and your partnerships on your own – and your partners’ – terms. Conversations on the changes that have occurred and are occurring will be valuable and continue to move your process forward.

The Moon continues through Aquarius until 7:47 PM EDT when she enters Pisces, now, you can relax into deep dreams-space as you prepare for the upcoming week.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:22 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 7:47 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”    ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

BEGIN THE PLAN

Monday, October 16, 2017:

This week begins on a much easier note than last week; thank goodness!

The Moon is in precise, efficient Virgo providing the ability for you to pay careful attention to the details, buckle down, and accomplish what needs to be done.

At 7:13 AM EDT, as you begin the day, the diplomatic Libra Sun forms a charming sextile aspect to hard-working Saturn. This is a good time to explore how you want to work with a new cycle of stabilization that will begin in late December when the Sun and Saturn conjunct at zero degrees Capricorn. Look at where zero degrees Capricorn falls in your chart; the house placement will tell you what area of life requires a major, meaningful new beginning.

Explore new ideas, get serious about this; begin to gather your thoughts about a very important, new endeavor to start in late December. As Saturn leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn, we will all begin to be engaged on more serious projects. Begin your preparation for that now.

 

 

THE MIND DEEPENS

Tuesday, October 17, 2017:

When you wake up on Tuesday morning, you may notice the quality of your mind has shifted to a very different state. While you slept, Mercury left Libra behind to enter Scorpio. While in Libra, your thinking and conversations have been focused on making things look good and maintaining, at least, the image of refinement and charm. Remember that Mercury represents the way you think, what you think about, and how you communicate and share information.

At 3:58 AM EDT, Mercury entered the still, deep, dark waters of Scorpio. While Mercury is in Scorpio (until November 5th), observe your mind as it becomes determined to search out what is hidden and goes deeply into private and introspective considerations.

Those who have undisclosed secrets can find themselves in a rough spot as those hidden issues may be revealed at this time.

At 1:34 PM EDT, the Moon enters lovely, polite Libra. Perhaps, you are not quite ready to go into those deep Scorpionic places yet or to bring them into the conversation. For the time being, you can allow your mind to go deep even as your heart remains discreet… there will be time to open to the full extent of what is revealed when the Moon enters Scorpio on Thursday night.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:27 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 1:34 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SHARE DEEP THOUGHTS

Wednesday, October 18, 2017:

Sandor Wearing Vest by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

With Mercury now in Scorpio, you are generally more likely to keep your own counsel, you may not be quick to share what may seem too dark or vulnerable. However, on Wednesday, mental Mercury joins with expansive Jupiter in the early morning hours. You can’t help but bring those deeply intense ideas out into the open. You long to share your deepest concerns, vulnerabilities, even your fears.

By sharing these deep issues with others, you are able to understand yourself more thoroughly. Pay close attention to who you chose to share yourself with and be willing to be a sounding board for others as they unload their deep concerns as well.

When the diplomatic Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to deeply intense Pluto at 9:03 PM EDT, you may question the wisdom of all that you have shared. Don’t worry, trust it, and go deep.

Darkness is easy to locate as we are in the Dark of the Moon, moving to the New Moon on Thursday.

 

 

LIBRA NEW MOON – SEEKING HARMONY AND GRACE

Thursday, October 19, 2017:

Even with the Moon in peaceful Libra, you may feel anxiety or excitement as the Sun challenges the unusual with the Sun opposing Uranus early on Thursday afternoon. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of personal freedom, originality, and detachment from conventional ideas and patterns that holds you back. The cycle between them began in mid-April of 2017. What excitement began at that time? How far have you come in moving forward on this path?

At this point, you can see and acknowledge your progress and you are able to determine how best to bring this issue forward into your life more fully in the coming months.

At 3:13 PM EDT, we reached the New Moon at 26° Libra. At this New Moon, you will want to plant a seed that will develop into love, grace, and harmony; over the coming weeks build on this theme. Create beauty in your life; bring love to others; set selfishness aside.

At 9:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters deep, transformative Scorpio. .When you fall asleep on Thursday night, look for dreams of the Phoenix, transformed, coming from the ash.

Thursday is a powerful day. Use it well.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:13 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 9:41 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

VERBALIZE YOUR SHADOW

Friday, October 20, 2017:

As the Moon begins her trek through mysterious Scorpio, she immediately bumps into expansive Jupiter and shortly thereafter joins with Mercury, the planet of communication and thought processes. This suggests that issues of intensity and depth may require verbal expression in ways that you may not even anticipate. The results of your words may have a larger impact than you expect. This will be a great morning for writing; write down your deepest secrets, your most intense inner shadow issues; allow healing to come through words expressed.

Most of the day is relatively quiet although you can expect to have a high degree of awareness regarding the shocking depth of transformation of what so many in the world are currently processing in their own lives. Spend time in deep inner work.

Do you know the practice of tonglen? Tonglen is a practice for soothing others and cultivating love and compassion. It is a gentle process of opening the heart by embracing, rather than rejecting, the unwanted and painful aspects of experience, we can help ourselves and others to overcome fear and develop greater empathy. Instruction here.

At 8:15 PM EDT, the Moon engages in a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune, allow yourself to drift into an early sleep deeply connected to dream, fantasy, and inspiration.

RELEASE THE STORY

Saturday, October 21, 2017:

You can expect Saturday to be a relatively quiet day but one of great emotional depth and intensity. Early in the morning, the Scorpio Moon forms a sextile aspect to powerful Pluto, offering the opportunity to dig deeply into very private issues of power and control. You will want to get to the bottom of whatever issues present themselves and are willing to get your own hands dirty in the process. Truth and honesty are important to you but if you experience jealousy or obsessiveness, consider that you may be embroiled in some unwarranted paranoia as well.

If you have the sense that something untoward is unfolding, allow it to happen. Release the story that you feel wrapped up in and focus on the underlying issues of power and control. Let go of your attachment to having things as you expect or want them to be.

The Scorpio Moon reminds us each month of the importance of going deep, relaxing your hold, and releasing control in order for a more positive outcome than you may imagine.

 

 

THE COURAGE OF DIPLOMACY

Sunday, October 22, 2017:

The depth and intensity of the past few days, courtesy of the intense Scorpio Moon, can be set aside as the Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 7:57 AM EDT. With the Moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius, your emotional attention turns to travel, big ideas, and a higher understanding of the world and your place in it.

At 2:28 PM EDT, Mars, having been in orderly Virgo since September 5th, enters romantic, charming Libra. Mars represents the manner in which we take action, the way that we push ourselves forward with courage and purpose. While Mars was in Virgo, you may have noticed that you spent a lot of your attention busily looking at the details and attempting to perfect all your projects and physical activities.

Now, as Mars finds his way into diplomatic Libra, your thoughts and actions turn toward cooperation and balanced social interactions. Mars would prefer to be in aggressive Aries where he can simply take what he wants directly and assertively; however, while he moves through Libra until December 9th, he will teach us the importance, and even the courage it takes, to negotiate and allow human relationships to determine the direction forward.

Remember what your mother told you… ‘You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’. 🙂

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:36 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 7:57 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.
