An intimate view



Monday, October 16, 2023

Today’s Scorpio Moon is a precursor to Scorpio Season, which officially begins when the Sun enters this fixed water sign on October 23rd. The Scorpio Moon acts as an early signal of what’s to come over the coming weeks. This year’s Scorpio Season is particularly rich and interesting. I’ll be sending you a video to explore within the next few days.

After last Saturday’s powerful Libra New Moon solar eclipse, we’re now ready to explore the deeper aspects of our dependencies and make changes to gain independence and autonomy.

Find the house in your natal chart that holds Scorpio. At 7:31 AM EDT, the Moon forms an opposition with Jupiter in Taurus. Oppositions enable us to see something previously hidden. Look at your natal chart. Pay attention to what comes into view between the deep emotional intensity of the house that holds Scorpio and the desire for stability in the house that holds Taurus.

Share your thoughts and ideas as to how this relates to you and your natal chart.

The Moon remains in Scorpio until mid-afternoon. Use the early part of the day to delve into deeply personal emotions related to the house that holds Scorpio in your natal chart. You will prefer solitude over casual interactions during this time.

At 3:37 PM EDT, the Moon enters Sagittarius, shifting your emotional focus. It’s a good time to be social, explore a new part of town, or visit an art gallery or museum. Embrace ideas that ignite your curiosity.

By 5:01 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Saturn, you may feel frustrated due to responsibilities or restrictions that prevent you from pursuing your interests. Try to find ways to align your curiosities with your duties. If you’re dealing with relationships with others that feel restrictive, consider how you can engage them with your interests and curiosities.

The missing knob


Wednesday, October 18, 2023

With the Moon in Sagittarius today, your emotions long for adventure and optimism. You feel called to new horizons and spontaneous activities. This is a great day to gather knowledge, understanding, and vision.

However, at 7:15 AM EDT, the Sagittarius Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Venus in Virgo. This introduces a bit of complexity to the day. There’s a potential conflict between your desire for freedom and adventure and your sense of the importance of paying practical attention to your relationships or your need to make a living. Finding a balance between idealism and realism is an important practice for today. Pay attention to how you can optimistically explore big ideas while also honoring your need for stability in relationships and financial issues.

This is an interesting exploration and can be used to more deeply understand the differences between your needs and desires and how to find a balance between the two.

You can see how this conflict pays out in your own life by exploring your need for adventure in the house that holds Sagittarius in your natal chart and the house that holds Virgo.



Thursday, October 19, 2023

The emotional theme of today, with the Moon in Sagittarius, is to embrace your most adventurous spirit as well as do your best to maintain an optimistic attitude. This is a time to seek new horizons, engage in spontaneous activities, and approach challenges with enthusiasm. It’s a day for exploration developing a thirst for knowledge. This makes it an excellent time for educational pursuits and personal growth. One thing to remember is that we tend to be quite candid and even blunt in our communications when the Moon is in Sagittarius. This can sometimes get us in hot water, so pay attention when interacting with others.

This is a great day to plan for future travel, cultural experiences, or intellectual pursuits that will broaden your horizons. There is so much to learn.

At 9:54 PM EDT, the Moon steps forth into the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. The next few days will support hard work, effort, and accomplishment.

The season begins


Friday, October 20, 2023

Very early this morning while you slept the Libra Sun joined with Mercury at 26 degrees Libra. You can anticipate an enhanced ability to communicate. Your thoughts are focused and your interactions seek to promote balance and fairness. The question is if you are able to do so.

The problem today is a very powerful square aspect formed between Mercury and Pluto at 8:50 PM EDT. This energy has been building throughout the day and will stay with us for several days. Expect mental and conversational intensity.

You are highly inclined to engage in discussions on sensitive topics, which could lead to disagreements or power struggles if not handled with care. Trying to avoid the issues at hand is not the solution. A square aspect insists that we face the issue at hand. Be mindful of potential conflicts arising from stubbornness or a desire to control the narrative. It’s important to practice active listening and avoid making assumptions about others’ intentions. You may also experience a heightened awareness of your own thoughts and motivations. Allow this to move you toward personal introspection and self-analysis.

While Mercury square Pluto can present challenges, it also offers an opportunity for personal growth through honest and deep conversations. It’s essential to approach such interactions with a willingness to learn, a large dose of flexibility, and an open mind. This can lead to profound insights and a better understanding of both yourself and others.

On a personal note, look to the houses that hold Libra and Capricorn in your natal chart. This is where you will encounter the power dynamics we speak of here. There is a list of House designations below.

Following yesterday’s Mercury square Pluto aspect, we come to the Sun forming a square aspect to Pluto at 10:09 AM EDT. This continues the intensity of yesterday with ongoing power struggles, potential conflicts, and a strong desire to make a major and significant change in your life. Hidden issues may come to the surface, encouraging you to confront deep-seated fears or issues related to power and control. This is a time when breaking free from personal limitations may be at the forefront of your mind.

Today’s Capricorn Moon reaches its first quarter square phase following last week’s Solar Eclipse. There is a strong desire to take action that will determine the direction of future goals. With the Moon in Capricorn, these actions will be executed with discipline and responsibility. You may feel compelled to take practical steps to address the challenges of the past few days.

While today may bring tension and difficult emotions to the surface, they also offer powerful opportunities for personal growth. This is a day to confront your fears and limitations head-on, work towards resolving any issues that have been holding you back, and take determined steps towards your goals, even if you must push through challenging circumstances.

Sunday, October 22, 2023

There are a lot of moving parts today. First, the Moon entered Aquarius while you slept. With all the difficulties of the past few days, this is a relief. The Moon in Aquarius allows us to take a break as our emotions cool off and we can observe them dispassionately.  The house that holds Aquarius in your natal chart will show you where your cool emotions reside today. Venus also formed a trine aspect to Jupiter in the night, bringing stability and calm to our values regarding relationships and finances.  Both of these are very helpful following the past few difficult days.

Mercury entered Scorpio while you slept as well. This brings your mind and conversation into deeper layers of personal intensity. The attention of your thinking pushes into the house that holds Scorpio in your natal chart. Very shortly after this occurs Mercury forms a trine aspect to Satun which helps our internal voice maintain a level of stability and maturity. You may fall down a deep rabbit hole of ideas, thoughts, and conspiracy theories, but you will likely remain tethered to the real world.

On a personal note, look to the houses that hold Libra and Capricorn in your natal chart. This is where you will encounter the power dynamics we speak of here. There is a list of House designations below.
