MARS Crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ and Rises in SAG (Jan 3 – Feb 16): Upward-Onward we GO!

30 Dec

Hi Cosmic & Magical Beings!

  phoenixrising  

MARS, presently at the ‘tail end’ of SCO, will cross over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG on Jan 3 – Yayyyy! Another amazing 2020 New Year’s effect!

We’re coming out of an intense Martian immersion in SCO since Nov 18 (with both the SUN & MERCURY also in SCO then) which indeed stirred a lot up – only to help us process & expel what’s been hiding in the shadow.

Have over the last while sticky, repressed ‘stuff’ incl core fears gotten provoked in you? Transformation starts often fiercely…

Im referring here to the SATURN / PLUTO effect that’s the bigger backdrop. Both planets come together in CAP (with a whole big CAP cluster attached) on Jan 12 (only every 38 years, and in CAP only every hundreds of years). PLUTO rules SCO and SATURN CAP. Together, they evoke & purge old conditioning (often with fear & control being major ‘ingredients’), based on the old top-down system – which is now crumbling (while still hanging on in the old modus operandi). 

Lots of ‘digestion’, burning, and purging has been happening, on deep inner psycho-spiritual levels for us personally, and big time on collective levels too, this Fall & early Winter.

Basically since early Oct, when MERCURY entered SCO for a loong time on the very day (Oct 3) when PLUTO (ruler of SCO) went from retro to direct.

The purge was super boosted round the time when MARS joined forces in SCO, on Nov 18.

MARS in SCO also catalyzed big structural PLUTO-in-CAP purges (as in: ‘Old Empire’ / inner Matrix) which lead to living from Power Within.

If you feel you already had your share hopefully you could also work wisely-consciously with the intensity.

Maybe it takes some time to process and integrate what’s been going on. But hey, early next year no Planets will be retro for a while which supports forward momentum.  

Have you noticed recently more energetic support in flushing out what came up, and needs to be eliminated and transformed?

MARS is now at the last part of SCO (since Solstice)! What’s been ‘poking and provoking’ us, even though it could have created conflict, and might feel fierce, is actually also good Medicine for transformation and empowerment.

MARS (Hubble Space Telescope). Loving the Phoenix type pattern ON Mars’s surface!

MARS is this transition week from old-to-new year & decade at the ‘tail end’ of SCORPIO.

Perfect cosmic support for deep release. 

Connect with what has provoked you – and shown your shadow – esp. recently. You might literally feel a kind of heat rising up when just tuning into those feelings (e.g.: sense of betrayal, resentment, mistrust, disgust, shame, failure…).

What has come to the surface, and what has it transformed into? In this transition phase, how about honouring MARS in SCO for being that catalyst / detox energy?  

What’s been / still needs to be purged in your life, esp. in the area related to the house where SCO / SAG is in your chart?

Maybe you have Planets, Sun, Moon, or AC there?

Feel welcome to get in touch, if you could use supportive pointers, or an Astro Boost!

Still got the Astro Treat Time offer with substantial discounts for sessions on until tomorrow Dec 31.  

 

Blessings for the Inner Magical Alchemy & Rebirth – into the New Now!  

 

What’s next?

As MARS crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCORPIO to SAG, on Jan 3, let its fiery energy burn off what you’re not, and give you a boost into Rebirth! 

Once MARS will be in SAG, a fiery energy comes into the system – and into the fresh New Year & Decade that’s excellent for motivation, enthusiasm, literally travelling, shooting from the Heart, acting based on our Truth & Inspiration, aiming high, and going upward-onward.

Since the MARS boost in SAG also corresponds with a retro-free phase (Jan 10 – Feb 16 NO Planet will be retro) a lot can be set into motion and freely move forward now.

What’s your intention?

Aaand: We might still want to watch for the Martian shadow expressions of turning our passion for a cause and movement into an argumentative fight and righteous endeavor / mission.

 
 

MARS will be in SAG until Feb 16 – and energize several quite significant cosmic alignments during that time:

Markers in the Martian Journey in SAG

 

JAN 6
Epiphany – Magi Day / Astrologer’s Day  

 

JAN 10
FULL MOON in CAN – CAP / Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
MERCURY lines up with the CAP SUN – Superior Conjunction
URANUS turns from retro (since Aug 11) direct again (until Aug 15).
From that day on, NO Planet will be retro until Feb 16.  

 

JAN 12
The long anticipated alignment of SATURN & PLUTO occurs.
And MERCURY meets both on that day too.  

 

JAN 13
The CAP SUN meets PLUTO & SATURN
VENUS enters PISCES (where ‘she’s exalted – most favourably placed) – until Feb 7  

 

JAN 16
MERCURY enters AQ where it’s exalted (best positioned in the Zodiac) – until Feb 3.  

 

JAN 20
The SUN enters AQ.
The MOON in SAG meets MARS.  

 

JAN 22
The SUN freshly in AQ squares the AQ Ruler URANUS.  

 

JAN 24 / 25
NEW MOON in AQ
Beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat  

 

FEB 2
Imbolc / Candlemas / St Brigid’s

 

FEB 3
MERCURY enters PISCES where it’ll go retro on Feb 16 (the day MARS changes sign).  

 

FEB 7
VENUS enters ARIES – ruled by MARS (until March 4).  

 

FEB 8
FULL MOON in LEO – AQ  

 

FEB 16
MARS enters CAP (where it’s exalted) – until March 30.
MERCURY goes retro (until March 9).      

 

Now, let’s check out the 

Cosmic Contacts of MARS in SAG (Jan 3 – Feb 16) with other Planets, and the Corresponding ‘Medicine’

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card Four of Wands – Aspiration. Also very apropos MARS in SAG

JAN 3
MARS goes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO into SAG.
Burning off the transformed, and Rising from the Heart.  

 

JAN 5
MARS in early SAG in Fire Trine with CHIRON in (MARS ruled) ARIES.
Healing REbirth & REnewal in Truth & Authentic Presence.  

 

JAN 7
MARS in early SAG in quincunx with URANUS retro / stat (going direct on Jan 10) in early TAU.
Let’s trust and move with breakthroughs that are ‘ripe’ to show up in physical, tangible ways as we embody freedom! Your truth sets you free. Freedom from, for, and: Freedom that has no opposite (one of my fave Krishnamurti reminders).  

 

JAN 20
The MOON in SAG meets MARS.
Our Heart-YES in Action.  

 

JAN 26 – 28
MARS in SAG in square with VENUS-NEPTUNE in PISCES.
Being in flow, surrender, and freedom. ONE Love.    

 

 

Where is MARS’s Inspiration / Aspiration Boost in SAG happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SAG? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in SAG, since ‘he’ also activates your Sagittarian Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up in heart-full inspiration, with a big Why and YES.   

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius, Painting by Johfra Bosschart

And for all of us, whichever House/s SAG inhabits in our birth chart is the inspiration realm – the corresponding area of Life is about Trust and Heart Fire – fuel to move forward, with the Inner Light.

 

Your SAG Houses – we all have one (or two) – and the MARS Effect / Medicine:  

 

1st House
Your Presence and Sense of Self
Magnanimous and fun to be around.
Go for it – trust yourself and trust Life!
 

 

2nd House
Your Values, what you own, literally & metaphorically, incl. your Business
A great boost to inspire the world with your values and uplifting vibes.
 

 

3rd House
Your Environment & Relatives
Wide open spaces to roam around? A multi-cultural world?
Or sooo much space between you & them?
A good time to be pro-active and meet (or travel to) people from afar yet near & dear to your Heart.
 

 

4th House
Your Home, Origin, Ancestry
Overseas? Around the World?
Give yourself Space @ Home, hike & roam around and let yourself be inspired by what’s around you. Explore truths about your Family & Ancestry (but take it easy on domestic arguments).

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.
The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.
I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

SAG New Moon (Nov 26) – Cultivating the Sparks of Light

25 Nov

Dear Cosmic Friend & Astro News Reader,

The early SAG NEW MOON is coming tomorrow Nov 26 – yayyy! 

She ignites our Heart Light with Phoenix Fire that turns into Solstice Light!
This lunar phase reaches exactly to Christmas – the next New Moon will be the Partial Solar Eclipse(!) in early CAP on Dec 25!

 

The SAG New Moon catalyzes VENUS’s (today Nov 25) and even JUPITER’s (Dec 2) ‘ascent’ into CAP!

Plus, the New Moon brings  NEPTUNE’s turnaround in mid-PISCES from retro (since June 21) to direct on Wed Nov 27!
This is quite the NEPTUNE week…
We may feel overwhelmed, drained, depleted, or like turning to escapes.
Lifting (SAG) the vibe
would be to truly relax, and find true connection from within, and with others where things flow… notice: That actually gives you energy! 
Also very Neptunian Medicine:
Music, dance, Yoga, meditation (not just as a temporary relief / escape but as a practice that clears and connects).

 

When it comes to SCO, it’s true, we’re still burning off a LOT, esp. in the mental-emotional realm – MERCURY in SCO is JUST today coming out of its post-retro ‘storm’, and phases out in its post-retro ‘shadow’ by Dec 7 (yep, still some patience please!) by Dec 7, before finally, finally entering SAG on Dec 9.
And lots of energetics of hidden, repressed anger and frustration round power issues are also processing and burning off, with MARS in SCO (well, that one’s on until Jan 3). Move it, move it, Babes!
Good thing is: This phase has gotten us to the bottom of things, from where real change is possible.

If you’ve been in an emotional crisis lately, where a LOT of shadowy stuff came up that you didn’t even feel comfortable to share, welcome to the club!
Crisis stirs things up, ideally moves it out of the system, and precedes new growth and evolution. 
The time is ripe.
And the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon points to help showing up along the way.

 

We’re also (since MARS entered SCO on Nov 18) in another phase (as extensively in the Summer) without Planets in the AIR Element, until Dec 19 when VENUS enters AQ.
Which can have effects of feeling stifled, claustrophobic, out of touch with ideas and communication, and when they happen it’s not easy to be detached and objective.
On the other hand, it’s an opportunity to tap into and practice no-Mind / emptiness of the Mind, and experience stillness within, rather than having the inner commentator involved, and being engaged in chatter, inside and out.

 

Voila, here’s the

‘Birth Chart’ of the SAG New Moon:

Early SAG where the New Moon will be (4º 02′) has an ARIES undertone (according to a real cool decanates system that helps describe sub-vibes of areas in the Zodiac – I might teach it again in the New Year – let me know if you’re interested!).
Freshness & Freedom is the flavour.

Spoke with two friends individually today, and we all voiced how we welcome the Rising Energy with the New Moon.

She ignites a Spark of Heart Fire that guides and carries us through the darkness of the longest nights. SAG deeply trusts and knows: The Light will return, and walks with anticipation and gratitude.

Baby Blessings are bestowed with the New Moon.

OH, and what a New Moon Blessing for the Thanksgiving week!

 

Let’s see what Gifts are offered by the 

Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 

The New MOON will be at 4º 02′ SAG.

4º SAG says:

Learning to Walk – Pixabay Photo by Caleb Oquendo

“A LITTLE CHILD LEARNING TO WALK WITH THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF HIS PARENTS.

KEYNOTE: The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth.

At an early stage in its development, every living organism must make an attempt to overcome the power of gravitation, or rather to learn to use it in order to fulfill the purpose of its life. This implies passing through a critical state of growth — growth in freedom, potency and individuality, inasmuch as “walking” always symbolizes self-induced progress. In such a crisis the individual is not left alone. Some more evolved Power and Intelligence watches, encourages and gives examples to be followed.

As usual, this fourth stage symbol in the forty-ninth sequence gives a hint of technique. It presents a picture of the conditions under which a RESOLUTION OF CONFLICT can be ensured, whether at the organic, the personal or the super-personal level of unfoldment.”

 

What a well-fitting symbol – after SCORPIO crises and Martian conflicts – for the early SAG energy with ARIES undertone…! We came through this… a sense of RE-Birth is in the Air.
Baby Steps & Baby Blessings for walking forward-upward-onward again!

Growth (SAG) happens, after having perhaps fallen down / being pulled into some Scorpionic ditches – which yet showed us the bottom and core of things where we have been in self sabotage and given energy & power away (as in: Shadow Projection, Fear, Shame, Blame, you name it…). 
Not to say we ‘should have known better’ and ‘avoided those Scorpionic traps’. The process hopefully(!) served its purpose to strengthen us – an immunization.
If not quite yet – it’s all organic, not a linear check list – MERCURY now in post-retro ‘Shadow’ in SCO until early Dec, and MARS still in SCO until Jan 3 help us bravely move things through, with the guiding Light of the SAG SUN.

 

Love how the Sabian Symbol suggests, instinctively (SCO) trusting (SAG) in Higher Powers guiding and protecting us. We can experience its evidence through signs, and how we spontaneously feel in their presence (lighter, freer, inspired, uplifted, joyful?).
The body-mind-spirit is honest & direct.

 

Plus, I’d like to add:
Ask pure Source and Protective Guides like Angels for help too (no fancy invocation words, directly, simply in your own voice from the Heart). The SAG ‘arrow’ is also an intention, a vision, and a prayer.
A sign for their pure vibration is that they don’t interfere with free will. They respond to being asked and invoked.

The New Moon in early SAG comes in a beautiful Fire / Spirit Trine with CHIRON (prominent in December!) in early ARIES – Healing & Teaching Medicine lays in stepping out newly-authentically (ARIES) and stepping forward (SAG) on the Path to the Light.

The evidence of Higher and Soul Powers will come through ever more strongly as we’re approaching the epic SATURN – PLUTO conjunction on Jan 12 – which also marks the Old Empire Expiring.
Both Planets already approach their union (in a 37-38 year cycle) – as seen in the chart.
Hence this SAG New Moon, and even more so the CAP New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse on Christmas Day(!), catalyzes that epic event to help us step up (CAP) into embodying our Soul Power.

 

VENUS has JUST today Nov 25 moved over the ‘Integrity Point’ into CAP
We’re attracted to – and maybe have been waiting for a loong time – for what’s rock-solid, mature, and timeless. JUPITER follows in a week, on Dec 2! To inspire us for Building for the Highest Good.

Literally in relationships and with any partnership in compatibility, once a grounded “That’s IT” sense is established the energy builds, and together / in synergy something solid & purposeful can be built that’s a model for others too.
Clearly a great ‘resource’ to make the World a Better Place.

In the New Moon chart, you can see both in close union wrapping round the Integrity Point – SAG-to-CAP cusp. Love for, and Attraction from Integrity is clearly catalyzed by the SAG New Moon!

 

New Seeds of Love & Growth are planted – overseen by Higher Powers.
All the Earthy CAP energy helps us with being cultivators of / in Integrity.

Blessings for Cultivating and Walking with the Sparks of Light! ♐️

Melanie

The SUN enters SAG (Nov 22 – Dec 21): Raising Vibrations, with the Inner Heart Light

20 Nov

Dear ASTRO~NEWS Friend,

This one’s dedicated to the SUN’s Journey through SAG this year (Nov 22 – Dec 21).

Cloudy Phoenix – Photo by moi 

 

On Nov 22 at 6:59 am PST, the SUN moves across the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCORPIO to SAGITTARIUS!

Following the example of grand JUPITER who’s been in its own sign of SAG for a year now, inspiring us and giving us major perspective on things.

JUPITER will start its ascent in CAP on Dec 2
More about that in separate blog post!

 

Once again in the yearly cycle, we will have burnt a lot through and off, with the SUN, also VENUS, and MERCURY retro in SCORPIO, and rise again… from the deep intense Scorpionic ‘underwater’ realm to a fiery, spirited Sagittarian Heart knowing: “We got through it, and see the picture more clearly now!”.

 

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius –
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

 

Always a good reminder that the Sagittarian Archer/ess pulls the arrow back to her / his HEART while / before aiming high!

With JUPITER now already for a year in SAG leading the way, we have an even deeper under-standing of why we’re moving in a certain direction, and where we’re coming from…

As we connect in Heart Consciousness (SUN in SAG) we not only rise in our own vibration but raise vibrations that affect those around us, and energetically a whole ‘field’ in an inspiring way.

 

If you’re a Sagittarian by SUN sign

…you would have had SATURN on your SUN sometime between 2015 and end of 2017,major maturation of Spirit (that’s ‘due’ every 29 years), and perhaps some karmic ‘graduation tests’ too, when it comes to trusting yourself, your intuition and knowing, being in your natural authority, and on your Path. Where are you at in that regard now?

This year (since Nov 2018 – Dec 2, 2019), mighty JUPITER has been in your Solar energy field, supporting you to inspire us with your gifts in a BIG way – because you can – and believe in yourself and your Spirit connection!

 

What’s going on in the SAG Season 2019?

Right at the beginning of SAG, on the Solar ‘Phoenix Point’, VENUS unites with JUPITER – both in the Galactic Centre – on Nov 24 – Love & Trust the Journey!

The SAG New MOON on Nov 26 brings A Spark of Light – keep passing that torch on!

The SAG SUN will square NEPTUNE in PISCES on Dec 8 – Trust, Surrender, and Going with the Fun and the Flow, upward-onward to the Returning Light.

As MERCURY – after a loooong SCO immersion since early Oct, incl its retro phase (Oct 31 – Nov 20) – also crosses the Phoenix Point into SAG on Dec 9 the message is: Speaking our Heart Truth!

 

Sending Love, and Blessings of Light & Joy on your Path!
And Blessings into the SAG New Moon – post to come!

Apollo 11 – The First Step

17 Nov

Saw Apollo 11 @ the Imax today…

Go watch it – even if you’re just remotely interested.

Nice timing, and turned out to be very apropos: MERCURY retro in SCO, the LEO MOON today and the Phoenix week ahead….

What a full-on retro immersion & thrill!

Lots of amazing, ‘unreal’ 70 mm footage from the astronauts, and the Space Centres in Florida & Houston. Full-on ’69 chic. A miracle that technology of the time made it possible, and that it happened with such nonchalant precision.

Adding to my key theme of the year (with JUPITER in SAG): Perspective.  

 

Here’s the chart of the First Step by Armstrong, viewed from Houston TX (“One small step for man, one giant step for mankind.”)  

 

 
 
 
AQ Rising is befitting the scientific ‘identity’ of the event, the World watching, the Team Effort, the effect on Humanity.
Its ruling planet URANUS was conjunct JUPITER – actually EXACT on July 20 (every 13 years) – a ‘coincidence’? – , and both in the first degree of LIBRA, just ‘ahead of’ PLUTO in late VIRGO. I.o.w., a grand (JUPITER) scientific breakthrough (URANUS) by design (VIR to LIBRA), demonstrating the power (PLUTO) of engineering (VIR).
VIR-LI is the point of ‘perfect precision & balance’ – certainly required and achieved.
 
So, where was the MOON on the day, from Earth perspective?
(Ha, a lunar centric chart would be interesting too, and should be do-able via Astrodienst- which powers the Astrodatabank where I drew the chart from)
Well, in early LIBRA.
On the day of the launch, July 16, the New MOON (nice for new ventures) was in LEO – great for the SuperStar attention.
On July 20, when the Eagle landed, the MOON was practically conjunct JUPITER – URANUS.
Yay, meeting the MOON via this endeavour. The MOON at the time of the First Step was opposite CHIRON in early ARIES – “a small step….a precedent”.
 
 
And now, 50 years later, the Moon Landing has its CHIRON Return.
The Wounded Healer / Teacher in early ARIES comes full circle. 
Where is an unprecedented initiation / First Step indicated? For the U.S. and for Humanity….!
 
MARS in early SAG (on the ‘Phoenix Point’) close to the U.S. Ascendant was very auspiciously placed for launching the Phoenix / Eagle, for the mission, and to uplevel the image of the U.S. big time.
 
The SUN, with MERCURY closeby was in late CANCER, trine the NN in late PISCES – the CANCER nation and the human family were holding Space and welcoming the Men on the Moon back from Space to the Home Planet.
 
 
Fun to look at historic charts.

ASTRO CONSULTS

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.    

 

 

MARS in SCORPIO (Nov 18 – Jan 3): Intense Stirring, Clearing, and Spiritual Mobilization

9 Nov

Hi Cosmic & Magical Beings!

Enough fence sitting already – Time to get into THIS!

Misty Beach Creatures – Photo by Melanie

 

We’re already well into SCORPIO – what’s going on?

Well, MARS is still in LIBRA!

But not for much longer… Feeling it kicking in?

On Nov 18, MARS makes its move from fair & weighing LIBRA into magical-transformational SCORPIO where it’ll stir things up and work them through, until Jan 3.

…while mist & fog is settling in these days, here on the West Coast and it looks like the Scorpionic rain & storm season is on the horizon.

MARS’s crossing over the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO can be quite the catalyst for shifts and changes we’ve been waiting for, and we’ll get more oomph to go into.

MARS is also better placed in SCORPIO than in LIBRA where it’s been hanging out since Oct 3.
Aiming for negotiation (LIBRA) was often frustrated, since the negotiators could have been too much ‘in for themselves’ (MARS), or, on a personal level, one’s ego (MARS) could have been too involved in decision making and choosing (LIBRA), or one could have invested a lot of energy (MARS) in a dilemma (LIBRA) between self assertion (MARS) vs. doing it ‘for them’ / only if everyone’s on board (LIBRA).

With MARS in SCORPIO we’re more likely to ‘just dive in’, and what’s coming up now for processing can move us deeply, and gets things moving!
Which can be a roller coaster of grief, anger, deep love that turns into obsession, attachment and control, jealousy, betrayal, resentment, regret, shame… all those feelings that are otherwise hidden and ‘under wraps’. 
Yet the point (as typically with SCORPIO) is to not get ‘stuck in the dark’ but move all the way through the swamp and the magic, and come out on the other end, transformed and empowered.

 

Uhhh, MARS in SCORPIO is one of the parcels under the astrological Christmas Eclipse Tree?!
Yep, there will be an exact New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse ON Dec 25! – Quite the ‘light switch’ & end of an era – no more buying(!) into the old paradigm, and re-set into the core of Light Returning.

Well, just like in a good fairy-tale, and in inner psychological processes, all the characters have their place, no-one is banned from the party (and if they are that sets up an interesting sub-plot)…
SCORPIO stirs up and scrubs the bottom of the pot, can bring us to our knees, and into deep well-covered psychological layers that we usually avoid.
The Soul has its way with us…
I.o.w., MARS in SCORPIO can be a spiritual mobilization. 

 

Markers in the Martian Journey in SCORPIO 

Right at the beginning, MARS goes into quincunx with CHIRON retro in (MARS ruled) ARIES, and into opposition with URANUS retro in TAU, between Nov 21 – 24.
How can we show up in new raw and somewhat ‘scary’ but healing ways, as we create more intimacy and depth? And how do we welcome & move into breakthroughs that are ‘ripe’ to show up in physical, tangible ways as we embody freedom?

Way to (let?) go, and let separative and (self) destructive ego drives transform into freer ways of being – esp. as MARS contacts NEPTUNE & SATURN, between Dec 13 – 19.

Then on Dec 22, MARS goes into sextile with its ‘higher octave’ / transpersonal version PLUTO (ruler of SCO) nowa-years in CAP, where evolutionary regeneration demands working with time, resources and natural forces in a transformational way – BEING the Change that sustains rather than being on a collective suicide mission. 

That MARS – PLUTO contact right on Winter Solstice – leads over to TONs of CAPRICORN energy kicking / weighing in, and gearing up for the ‘grand day’ of Jan 12 – the epic / epochal conjunction of SATURN & PLUTO in CAP – the energetic expiry date of the ‘Old Empire’.
The released energy transforms into… commitment to be on Soul Purpose, doing deep Soul Work, showing up in Integrity, and deeply, truly bringing our Best to the table.

 

In its journey through SCORPIO, MARS will not just ‘witness’ / ‘mark’ but give oomph to a whole bunch of significant Cosmic Catalysts that ‘happen to happen’ during that period:

  • Nov 20: MERCURY in SCO goes direct again.
  • Nov 27: NEPTUNE in PISCES goes direct again.
  • Dec 2: JUPITER goes over the ‘Integrity Point’ from SAG into CAP (for 1 year).
  • Dec 11/12: Full Moon in GEM – SAG, with SATURN-VENUS-PLUTO in CAP.
  • Dec 12: CHIRON in (MARS ruled) ARIES goes direct.
  • Dec 25: ‘Christmas Eclipse’ – New Moon / Partial Solar Eclipse in CAP.

 

 

Now, let’s check out all the 

Cosmic Contacts of MARS in SCORPIO (Nov 18 – Jan 3) with other Planets

 

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot XV Devil’s Play
This deck features not the ‘Old Devil’ / polarized Evil-doer – but the Archetype that mixes things up, puts up a mask, shows us the shadow and provokes the old order – as the irreverent Goat steps over the Ring of Saturn.
Goes with MARS in SCORPIO in combo with SATURN / PLUTO in CAP.

NOV 21
MARS in early SCO in quincunx with CHIRON retro / stat. in (MARS ruled) ARIES.
How can we show up in new raw and somewhat ‘scary’ but healing ways, as we create more intimacy and depth?

NOV 24
MARS in early SCO opposes URANUS retro in early TAU.
Let’s welcome & move into breakthroughs that are ‘ripe’ to show up in physical, tangible ways as we embody freedom!
And yeah, you might feel the impulse of breaking free from and transform what keeps you stuck.


DEC 3
VENUS in mid-CAP (Nov 25 – Dec 19) in sextile with MARS in SCO.
A Love that never gets old, only goes deeper and more intimate.

 

DEC 13
MARS in mid-SCO in Water Trine with stationary NEPTUNE (goes direct Nov 27) in PISCES.
Time to process and let go of self-sabotaging ego drives, and dive into connectedness in the All.


DEC 19
MARS in mid- to end of SCO in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Timely clearing and diving into what matters most.

 

DEC 22
MARS in late SCO in sextile with PLUTO (Ruler of SCO) in late CAP.
Evolutionary regeneration: Working with time, resources and natural forces in a transformational way – BEING the Change that sustains.

JAN 3
MARS goes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO into SAG.
Burning off the transformed, and Rising from the Heart.

 

 

Where is MARS’s Deep Dive into SCORPIO happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SCORPIO?
Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in SCO, since ‘he’ also activates your Scorpionic Archetypes.
They get a boost of energy – to dive into the Heart of the Matter – where your passion & power might have been ‘under wraps’.

And for all of us, whichever House/s SCORPIO inhabits in our birth chart is the Transformational Cauldron – in the area of Life that can uncover its secrets, hidden agenda & hidden treasures.

(Always, but esp. nowadays) a good time to access Magic and Mystery (without getting ‘lost in the dark’) and process what’s under the surface  – perhaps through pain into power.

 

Your SCORPIO Houses – we all have one (or two) – and the MARS Effect / Medicine:

 

1st House
How You show up
Mysterious, magical, magnetic (and scary to some people)
Don’t hide – come out of your closet, and be the provocateur.

 

2nd House
What you have and Value
The power to affect others deeply and the power to change
Show us your gifts in disguise!

 

3rd House
Your ‘Relatives’ and Environment
Under cover agents or hard core of Magical Beings – and of course plenty of muggles in the neighbourhood?
Rather than stirring up some s**t, learn some tricks from each other, and be the Warrior of Love who goes where only Angels tread.

 

4th House
Your Home & Family
A magical place & regenerative Spa (or a skeleton in every closet and drawer)
Time for a brave purge – good to move the energy and give away
(MARS / NEPTUNE)?
Time to pro-actively connect with family. Never mind conflict that might show up – processing material that-is.

 

5th House
Your Creativity
You’re an alchemist – a juicy time to dig in and put energy and passion into new synergies.

 

6th House
Your Work, Health, and Lifestyle
Time for a cleanse, and to approach new work connections – it can change you and them.

 

7th House
Your Significant Others
The Magic of Love and Attraction.
Do you attract ‘opponents’ or sexy ‘oh-so-different’ ones who provoke and intrigue you? In any case they stir things up. Process rather than fight them / it.

 

8th House
Your deep Involvement and Transformations –
Time to courageously dive in and through.

 

9th House
Your Path, Travels and Worldviews
Go to deep and magical places…

 

10th House
Your Calling and ‘Public Self’
Being a catalyst for change – that’s why people are coming to you now.

 

11th House
Your Community and Friends –
Taboo free & transformational zone. Actively do things together that change the World.

 

12th House
Your Oneness with ALL –
The Big Mystery.
Stirred up dreams and altered states. Processing what’s going on in the Collective-as-in-You?

 

Blessings to all of us for a magical and passionately transformational Finale of 2019, with MARS in SCORPIO, and all the other ‘Cosmic Players’!

ASTRO~Travel – Intro Day

 

SAT NOV 16

Join in person in Victoria BC, or online via zoom.

Welcome to the Party!

 

VENUS crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG on Nov 1: Love A-Rising, Walking in Truth, Freedom, and Beauty

26 Oct

Dear Astro~News Friend, and Cosmic Co-Explorer,

Here she comes!
VENUS moves out of SCORPIO, spreads her wings, and rises in SAG!

VENUS the Love Goddess has been in her yearly ‘Underworld Journey’ in SCORPIO since Oct 8. SCO isn’t exactly one of her fave places to dwell in, since it’s polar opposite of yummy sensual TAURUS which VENUS rules – buuut, there’s beauty in the deep & dark…
Hope you’ve channeled the energy into Love for Life’s Magic and Mystery, and into full-on regeneration of the Inner Divine Feminine in her Power! She’s getting ready to Rise like a Phoenix!

VENUS will be in fiery & inspired SAG until Nov 25 – ushering in the SAG New Moon on Nov 26.

VENUS in SAG looooves Truth and Freedom.
Truth & Love shall set us Free!

The BIG news & grand finale is her meet-up with benevolent JUPITER at the end of SAG (the Galactic Centre!) on Nov 24.
Lots of Opportunities to attract from the Heart of Gratitude, Generosity, and Abundance – which are all expressions of LOVE – that’s where it’s at, best place to aim for and from!

 

‘Dates’ of VENUS in SAG (Nov 1 – 25) with other Planetary ‘Players’:

They’re concentrated round Nov 3 – 5, 19 – 21, and of course: Nov 24


NOV 3
(building up a few days prior)
VENUS in early SAG in Fire Trine with CHIRON retro in early ARIES.
Putting out loving Heart arrows & truth bombs brings us right into the moment. Being fresh & free, authentic & lovingly truthful with one another is healing.

NOV 4 (also with build-up time)
VENUS in early SAG in quincunx with URANUS retro in early TAURUS (ruled by VENUS).
Being out and about, and free from attachment to location and ownership.
EmBody Freedom!

 

NOV 5
The MOON in early PISCES squares VENUS in early SAG.
In Wonderland. Magical Mystery Tour.
Watch a movie… disappear in a book… dance, play music, dream, envision.
Life IS a movie and a trip (M-r in SCORPIO would agree…).

 

NOV 8
The MOON in early ARIES in Fire Trine with early VENUS.
Adventure calling. Make a move.
Try on / out something new, and see how you feel in / about it.

 

NOV 14 
VENUS in mid SAG squares NEPTUNE (‘her higher octave’) retro / stationary in mid PISCES.
Travelling on your ‘Dream Boat’? Living & Loving in LaLaLand? ONEderful for music, dance, romance.
This transit can ignite big hopes and dreams, and allow us to be open to attract through uplifted vibrations, to receive blessings and see miracles.
A low vibration would be to (buy into) over promise, esp. in matters of Love but also values – with illusions / delusions / disappointments as a result.
Thankfully,
CAP energy, compliments SATURN and PLUTO, helps with being realistic, grounded, and in integrity.

 

NOV 19
The MOON in LEO in Fire Trine with VENUS in SAG.
Let the good times roll, and celebrate the Day.

 

NOV 20
VENUS in SAG squares LILITH in PISCES.
Freedom to be on your Heart Journey, Freedom to be YOU.


NOV 21
The MOON in late VIR squares VENUS in late SAG.
Yeah-yeah, we need to look after things, but hey, this Heart Calling….!

 

NOV 24 – grand finale:
VENUS meets JUPITER end of SAG – in the Galactic Centre.
The big highlight of the VENUS-in-SAG journey.

If you ever play the lottery / go to the casino this is the day! Just kidding (maybe not)!
Massive attractions (doesn’t have to be a ‘good thing’) of what you focus on, and where you come from. Big indulgence / going for riches?
Or igniting the Heart Fire and being super generous with your L.O.V.E!
The Goddess is with You and in You!

 

NOV 25
VENUS enters CAP (until Dec 19) – where she’ll meet SATURN on Dec 11 (also Full Moon day), and PLUTO on Friday Dec 13(!).
Rock-solid and soulful LOVE that’s real. Power to Love.

 

 

VENUS in SAG in Your Chart & Life…

 

…can help your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planetary Archetypes in SAG and the area/s of life relating to the SAG House/s in your birth (and local) chart/s to be magnetic and attract – esp if you have clear focus and Heart Intent.

Share generously & trustingly.
True gifting w/o agenda makes you feel wealthy & happy.

 

9th House:
What gives you Meaning, Your Wisdom, Inspiration, Path and Travels
That ‘SAG House’. 
Soo many growth opportunities that you attract these days. Abundance is an attitude…

 

10th House:
Your Purpose incl Career, Your Public Self
Maybe a teacher, modelling with inspiration, fun, and generosity.
The public loves you, esp. these weeks.
Be out there on your Heart Mission.

 

11th House:

From all walks of life, and corners of the Planet. Party time…?!

ASTRO WORKSHOPS & EXPERIENCES

Coming up, and very much a la VENUS / JUPITER in SAG:

ASTRO~Travel – Intro Workshop Day

MERCURY 9 1/2 weeks in SCORPIO (Oct 3 – Dec 9)! Taboo Talk, Intimate Conversations, and 6th Sense

27 Sep

Dear Astro~News Reader,

Dr. Jeckyll / Mr. Hyde – artist unknown

We gotta address taboos and hidden agenda.
Privately, inter-personally, and publicly.

 

Ha – just in time before the Canadian Federal Elections on Oct 21 -when MERCURY in SCO will be in pre-retro shadow (from Oct 13 on).

Whoa – wait a minute… MERCURY will be in SCORPIO forever, AND retro, starting from Halloween on?

Yep. No hoax here.

This can become… interesting!

Getting out of the closet & airing what’s been hidden can be painful yet important for processing, empowering and transforming.

…says also PLUTO the ‘Lord of Scorpio’, prominent in October, since it changes directions from retro (inner / hidden / old Power issues) since end of April, to direct (Power to Change) from Oct 3 on.
And yep, PLUTO in CAP these years (2009 – 2023) is all about the change of abusive and corrupt power structures, government, and top-down leadership, and empowered transformation via building the new and evolved.
While admittedly (and ‘normal’ for PLUTO) status quo power structures hold on with teeth & claws – in the inevitable evolutionary change that’s coming and happening.

 

And now: MERCURY

Tipping Point – Photo by Ted Roberts

So – MERCURY will cross over the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO on Oct 3, on the DAY when PLUTO changes directions, and just after the Sept 28 LIBRA New Moon.

MERCURY will be in the ‘Down Under’ Zodiac sign for a while: until Dec 9 (you guessed why – it’ll go retro, Oct 31 – Nov 20). 
MERCURY will go almost fully through SCORPIO before going retro on Oct 31, and cover the (under)ground of the second half of SCO – 11 – 28 degrees – 3 times.

Big Time for Taboo Talk, as we dive into ‘uncomfortable’, scary, repressed, covered up, ‘under wraps’ and unfathomable topics and scenarios, remembered, experienced, or perhaps vividly pictured.
Yet, MERCURY in SCORPIO also opens up our 6th sense, tickles our interest in the mystery, the magical and otherwise unseen. And it’s much more conducive for deep intimate conversations.

 

Let’s see which connections MERCURY in SCORPIO makes with other Planetary Players – some triple contacts, in the pre-retro / retro / post-retro loop.


In order of appearance:

OCT 3
MERCURY enters SCORPIO – on the day when PLUTO the ‘Lord of SCORPIO’ goes direct.
Power to Change, and to Change the Conversation.

OCT 5
MERCURY in quincunx with CHIRON retro in ARIES.
Authentic Talk can be awkward, or refreshing to address vulnerabilities & taboos.

OCT 6
MERCURY opp. URANUS retro in TAU.
Wild card / liberating shifts in thinking and communications.
Be intuitive, innovative, expect the unexpected, incl. surprise news.
No rush to ‘run with them’ though.

OCT 8
VENUS joins MERCURY in SCORPIO (until Nov 1).

How deep is your Love?

OCT 12
Pre-retro Shadow (MERCURY at 11°35′ SCO – where it’ll go direct again) starts.
Fore-shadowing issues?

OCT 13
MERCURY sextile SATURN in CAP (1 of 3).
Considering deeper issues.

OCT 15
MERCURY trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (1 of 3).

Going deep into the traps of the self defeating mind, to allow for purging and releasing while staying connected in the Field of Love.

OCT 19
MERCURY sextile PLUTO in CAP (1 of 3).
Looks like the ‘Old Empire’ is on its way to expire.
What’s the conversation that’s now going on about that? What do you think?

OCT 23
The SUN enters SCO (until Nov 22).
Consciously diving into Magic, Mystery, and Transformation – t’is the Season.

OCT 25
The pre-retro ‘Storm’ / stationary phase for MERCURY retro in SCO starts.
Take it easy on ‘plans’.
Get ready for synchronicities and synch’ with the Flow & Magic of Life.

OCT 30
MERCURY at the end of SCO meets VENUS.
Intimate conversations. What is Love?

OCT 31
MERCURY (at 27°38′ SCO) goes retro (until Nov 20).
Alchemy of the Mind.
MERCURY retro in SCORPIO can present itself as really tricky, since the mind can poke & provoke us where it hurts – only to identify self-defeating patterns of self talk and ‘inner game’ that are now ripe to change – by going all the way through the process.

NOV 8
MERCURY retro sextile PLUTO in CAP (2 of 3).
Changes in Society re-flect inner transformation – good to be aware…

NOV 11
MERCURY retro meets the SUN on magical 11/11.
Half-way point of the M-r Journey = ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’ / a ‘New Mercury’ is born.
The mind in service to the Heart and Consciousness.
What are your realizations about the quality of ‘mind’, having already gone through deep inner journeys? 

NOV 13
MERCURY retro sextile SATURN in CAP and trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (2 of 3).
Being in integrity & maturity and in surrender & openness help with processing the tricks of the mind. What’s real here, and how is all / are you connected, in the web of life?

NOV 18
MARS makes a move over the ‘Tipping Point’ and joins MERCURY & the SUN in SCORPIO (until Jan 3).
Intense Stirring, Clearing, and Spiritual Mobilization.

NOV 20
MERCURY goes direct again.
May the inward-backward turning and processing lead to a transformed & renewed way of seeing and interacting with the World!

NOV 22
The SUN goes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO to SAG.
We Rise again – towards the Light Returning. Understanding leads to Freedom.

NOV 25
MERCURY leaves the stationary post-retro ‘storm’.
Integration of the adjustment time – back into the ‘real world’, with a regenerated sense of self, and awareness of where the mind comes in.

NOV 28
MERCURY post-retro trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (3 of 3).
Allowing the Alchemy to carry you.

NOV 29
MERCURY post-retro sextile SATURN in CAP (3 of 3).
Job well done, and good lessons learned.

DEC 2
MERCURY post-retro sextile PLUTO in CAP (3 of 3)
Being changed through the greater Alchemy of Life.

DEC 8
MERCURY leaves the post-retro Shadow (MERCURY at 27°38′ SCO – where it went retro from).
After the mental deep-dive adventure it’s time to integrate our new way of Being where Mind follows Consciousness and the Heart.

DEC 9
MERCURY crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG.
Growing wings…

 

More about MERCURY retro in SCORPIO (Oct 31 – Nov 20) in a blog post closer to MERCURY pre-retro shadow (which starts Oct 12).

For now, let’s dive in, be with Mystery, Magic, and not afraid of the ‘Dark’.

 

Where’s MERCURY’s deep dive into SCORPIO happening in Your Chart & Life?

Alchemy Retort. Medieval painting, origin unknown

The House in your Chart that contains SCORPIO is the ‘Scene of Affairs’.
(Always, but esp. nowadays) a good time to go into depth where magic, transformation, and re-generation happen.

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SCORPIO? Then there’s more to the activation between MERCURY and these Inner Archetypes of yours…

Could be a good time to check in astrologically – get in touch if you feel it’s calling you.

 

Back to the SCORPIO Houses – we all have one (or two) –

SCORPIO in your….

 

1st House
How you show up –
Maybe ‘under cover’ – more than what meets the eye.
The World senses the charge you emit. Don’t hide, be a catalyst.

 

2nd House
What you have and value –
Magic and power-to-change.
Be aware of those ‘gifts in disguise’.

 

3rd House
Your ‘relatives’ and environment –
Do they even know you / each other?
Hide & seek games? What needs to be talked about?

 

4th House
Your home –
A regenerative haven…
If you and your family have gone through so much this is the time to talk about it and process what happened and who you’ve become through it.

 

5th House
Your creativity –
Pure magic.
You’re the Alchemist – inspired by the divine Play of Change.

 

6th House
Your work, health, and lifestyle –
Time to purge, regenerate, and transform to be in your / the Power.

 

7th House
Your significant others –
Magical Beings. Catalysts for change.
Are you aware why they might be in your life?

 

8th House
Your deep involvement and transformations –
You died many deaths and here you are. Who’s the true you?

 

9th House
Your travels and worldviews –
Through the darkness to the light.
Time for another inner / outer Journey?

 

10th House
Your calling –
Leading / modeling transformation.
Does the World know / sense? Maybe time for a renewed public-yet-private presence.

 

11th House
Your community and friends –
A magical tribe – who probably went through a lot too.
Talk with your deep dive buddies – who knows where it leads.

 

12th House
Your Oneness with All –
In the Magic & Power of Life that’s always greater than personal / interpersonal power themes.
Take time-out to dive into what-IS.

 

Blessings for a truly transformational MERCURY in SCORPIO!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

Special offer & focus this month (until OCT 3):

Your Archetypes – Your Partners :: LIBRAn Astro Sessions

The SUN, MERCURY & VENUS are still in LIBRA and MARS follows, on OCT 3.
A big emphasis on Peace, Balance, Harmony, Art, Culture, and: Relatedness / Relationship.

If you have any ‘cosmic placements’ (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets) in LIBRA… the themes of those Archetypes / Inner ‘Players’ will more likely be on your mind, with MERCURY in LIBRA.
Engaging with what these Archetypes and sides in you stand for will bring you Balance.
Be Partners with them!
Otherwise, what often happens: We attract human partners who embody those Archetypes to help us integrate the themes. A bit of a ‘detour’.

Read on, and find the whole gist of the offer at my FB Page at the Event description.
