VENUS in CANCER (May 19 – June 13): Loving Gentleness and Care

17 May

Fairie

GEMINI – CANCER Cusp – Fairy Vibes

Ahhh – a soothing balance to the sharp MARS – URANUS energy:

On May 19, VENUS will move into sweet CANCER (where the LOVE Goddess will dwell until June 13):
Show your love through gentleness and care, and if your feelings change like the tides dance with it.

Literally being by and IN the water is a big draw now, and can help ‘smooth’ us out and RELAX, after sooo much MARS – URANUS thrill, as well as airy fairy energy, with VENUS in GEMINI, buzzing around, interesting in many things (maybe tooo many, and being overwhelmed, as VENUS square NEPTUNE in PI – exact on May 7 – could have shown.

Now, under VENUS in CANCER, we might go 2 steps forward (“yes, I’m attracted to that”), 1 step back (“let me check in how I really feel about it”), or even 2 steps back, and back off altogether from ‘ideas’ that sounded good and were attractive, under VENUS in MERCURY ruled GEMINI.

And, hey:
Home is where the Heart is – ever so true and important, under VENUS in CANCER!
Esp. the CANCERian sides in us might feel drawn to home and family, and to every being and place that makes us feel like we belong.

Plus, our Planetary / AC / MC / Nodal energies in CANCER will be more magnetic and attractive this month too.

 

So let’s take it easy and gentle, and get a sense of her ‘dates’ this month:

May 19 / 20:
Right on the first weekend ‘at home’ in CANCER,
VENUS goes into sextile with URANUS freshly in TAU, into square with CHIRON freshly in AR, and into quincunx with MARS freshly in AQ.
What kind of party / family is this?
Supportive of freedom and non-clingy / non-possessive vibes.
Yet, even though it can be awkward, raw and vulnerable to connect with our feelings authentically healing comes from it.

May 25:
VENUS opposes SATURN retro in CAP.
A dilemma between our sensitivity in relationships, perhaps going back to early childhood / family dynamics, and the need to step up to the occasion – perhaps set boundaries, and in general show up with self respect?
Instead of retreating into the safe shell and giving in to fear based behaviour, let’s care of our needs. Let’s be open to others about our feelings, while being the mature grown-up, and do what’s required.

June 1 / 2:
VENUS in Grand Water Trine with JUPITER retro in SCO and with NEPTUNE in PI (which are in Trine with each other on May 25).
Gentleness allows us to go deeper to the hidden, camouflaged layers of our feelings, have bigger awareness, allow for transformation, and release – with Love.

June 5:
VENUS opposes PLUTO retro and LILITH in CAP.
You might feel in an all-or-nothing mode, esp. in relationships that meet your core – and shadow.
Or maybe something needs to change, and return to what matters most – and to the Heart & Soul?

Much Love for the Venusian Infusion – Be nurtured by the Water!

ARIES New Moon with URANUS, MERCURY Turnaround & CHIRON Entering ARIES: Breakthrough into the Authentic YOU!

14 Apr

Dear Astro~News Readers,

The energies from the pre-Easter Full Moon are getting turned up another notch – or a few:

You MUST feel this already – at least ‘in the making’ (as in: New Moon)!
Tomorrow’s New Moon in late ARIES comes with URANUS, and brings a liberating Firework:
Freedom from… Freedom for… and ‘simply’:

Freedom to be Authentically YOU!

Whatever is in the way, like polarization splits a la ERIS in ARIES (see my recent post for the Full Moon on March 31, with ERIS involved) is being recognized for what it is, and gets busted right on the spot.

No need to ‘assert or defend yourself’ (which is also an ARIES energy but always implies an ‘against’).
Simply be YOU! Says liberating URANUS, right next to the New Moon.

Which can perhaps look like this:
Being consciously (SUN) emotionally (MOON) free (URANUS).
Feeling it coming big time?

Imagine…
If more and more of us wake up and step into LIFE (ARIES) with this Power? It can have massive effects on our lives, onto society, humanity, and our Life on Earth.

I’d say this Spirit is pushing so strongly now to come alive that there’s no more holding back or regressing. 
Also catalyzed by MERCURY and CHIRON, wrapping round the ‘Emergence’ / “Come Alive” Point from PI to AR!

MERCURY is now stationary in early ARIES – going out of retro tomorrow Apr 15 – about 16 1/2 hrs before the NEW MOON:
How have you come to more authenticity in your conscious thinking and communication?
Maybe you caught yourself in old conditioned / fearful / fake / ‘strategic’ / pleasing-oriented inauthentic patterns in this MERCURY Retro phase since March 22, questioned this, and tried on a new approach? Ha, or ‘simply’ something authentic ‘escaped you’ and brought out what you really think. 🙂
Maybe you noticed that when you speak-as-you-are things flow, you come alive, and people really only meet you for real.
Thaaank you, MERCURY Retro!
More about MERCURY below 🙂

 

CHIRON is about to ‘Come Alive’ & enter ARIES on Apr 17!

…with stationary MERCURY as a ‘midwife’
For a try-on / preview phase until Sept 25, when it re-immerses itself into PISCES. And then from Feb 18, 2019 on, the full-on emergence of ARIES Medicine will show up.

All is fresh and NEW in ARIES.
The Medicine is to be Authentically YOU!
Emerging from the Collective Consciousness.
Which can be scary, and / or hugely liberating.

CHIRON brings up ‘wounds’ and awkwardness, and we feel like an outsider – in ARIES when we show up or stand up for ourselves, and for what matters to us. It might be also awkward if we didn’t have role models, or their teachings don’t apply to THIS. 
Yet, what the heck? says ARIES, It’s my life, this is ME.
Early ARIES is a Warrior / Survivor. All about the NOW.

That’s what ARIES is all about: NOW THIS!
Alive, alert, letting life force emerge in every moment – like blossoms surprising us daily now. Time for fresh beginnings – or for simply being present with what’s always NEW.

Show up in a new way, try out what you haven’t before, not in a long time, or don’t have a ‘model’ or comparison for. If it ‘doesn’t work’ try something else (ARIES doesn’t mind starting anew). The essence of being innovative.
Anger (and ARIES expression) can be your vulnerability yet also guide you to your Medicine.

Those of you born with CHIRON in ARIES (Apr – Oct 1968, and Feb 1969 – March 1977) know a bit (or a lot) about this state of Being.
For you, round age 50 CHIRON will make its Return, and your ‘original wound / Medicine’ comes full circle.
All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in ARIES (or triggered by it, in LIBRA, CAN or CAP) we’ll get a CHIRON ‘kick’ too, to step forward, authentically as we are, esp. in the area of life related to our ARIES House in the chart.

Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our…

Special ASTRO Medicine Parlour:
CHIRON Enters ARIES
The Medicine of Being Authentically YOU!

Coming Monday Apr 16
Afternoon and Evening Group to choose from.

 

Let’s take a look at the ARIES NEW MOON chart…

…and see which other Archetypes show up now, reminding us to let their energies enliven us!
The ARIES NEW MOON will be exact at 6:57 pm PDT tomorrow, Apr 15.

 

Boom! There’s URANUS right next to the SUN and MOON Union in late ARIES.

URANUS has finally passed ERIS (their connection happened over the last 2 years, 2016 / 17. See the blog post for the last Full Moon, describing the theme – disruptive, shock and awe, ‘splitting’ and polarizing effects.

Their combined energy has been (well, one facet of it!) erratic, unpredictable, volatile (“You never know what comes next!”) which could have kept us on adrenaline / alert mode – and has also been used and ‘worked’ by ‘power players’.

Yet, on a higher vibrational mode (hey, good reminder: Astro Awareness is all about Raising your Vibration and be free – in my world anyway 🙂 ), it’s been a shake and wake-up call for a new approach to… everything – esp. old core issues that are up for transformation (PLUTO in CAP).
The Power is IN You.

As the shocking discordance producing scenarios are being integrated the (Uranian) Awakening in Humanity emerges big time now.
We the People don’t buy into the old ‘divide et impera’ (divide and rule) principle anymore that’s based on being set up against each other.


The NEW MOON just past ERIS and approaching URANUS (the MOON unites with URANUS on Apr 15 / 16, and the SUN on Apr 18) is a strong momentum towards Conscious Breakthrough and Freedom.

The ARIES NEW MOON with URANUS is unaspected (stands by itself without a link to other Planets) – that really stands out too!
This dynamic has ‘a life of its own’, which could manifest as ‘being in the closet’. But not for too long, with URANUS:
Liberation is ready to be released!

 

‘Winged Messenger’ MERCURY at the Beginning of ARIES 

…freshly out of retro (at 2:21 am PDT = 16 1/2 hrs before the NM).

Hope you’ve also had lots of paradigm shifts of / from the mind, with MERCURY retro, while URANUS the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY (still) also in ARIES, on a transpersonal dimension has been rattling us to wake up.

MERCURY is now in post-retro ‘storm’ in its ‘U-turn’ from retro to direct – a re-adjustment time (like a ‘reverse culture shock’ which can happen when we come back from a re-treat to our ‘known’ environment). Let’s give it a week or so to integrate.

The ‘storm’ (MERCURY moving very slowly in forward gear) goes technically until Apr 24, followed by the post-retro shadow until May 4 (when it goes over the Zodiac degree zone which it went retro from = 17° AR).
A good time to process and start to act on ARIES Retro themes that have come up, a la “Back to the Beginning!”:

  • Did M-r re-connect you with people from the ‘beginnings’ when you started things / when you were new in town / in your work…?
  • Did it bring that spirit back?
  • Was that refreshing and re-inspiring, to bring you back to a ‘Beginner’s Mind’ approach?
  • Or did it show you (ha, the CAP contrast that also came up – MERCURY in triple square with SATURN): “Been there, done that. That was me in the beginning, Now with all my experience however…” (a fine line between being realistic and judge-mental).

Mainly, it’s about Authenticity and Origin-ality, with M-r in ARIES.

The stationary MERCURY invites CHIRON over from PISCES into ARIES: Being YOU is the Medicine!

MERCURY and CHIRON (only 5 degrees apart from each other, wrapping around the ‘Emergence Point cusp from PI to AR) are also unaspected. What brings you ‘back to life’? It’s YOUR Life.

 

Who else shows up for the ARIES New Moon Party?

As you see in the chart, there’s lots of cardinal activation in the New Moon and beyond: (Soon CHIRON), MERCURY, the SUN / MOON, URANUS, SATURN, MARS, LILITH, and PLUTO are all in cardinal signs, actually only two of the four: ARIES and CAPRICORN:

What are you initiating (AR), and where do you show up in leadership and integrity (CAP) – without taking too much on or becoming a scapegoat?!

 

Vibrant Country Goat

MARS in CAPRICORN having passed SATURN (Apr 2) will unite with LILITH on Apr 19 and with PLUTO on Apr 26!
A MARS activation happens only every 2 years.

MARS in CAP is a ‘kicker’ for all of us with SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in CAP, but also for the ARIES, CANCER, and LIBRA sides in us which aren’t by nature accomplishment oriented but can use a boost (inner / outer Spring clearing and ‘reno’ anyone?).

Check out my Astro~News blog for MARS in CAP 2018.

  • With MARS past SATURN, have you noticed (since early April) a shift to leave obstacles, frustrations, fears, shoulds, expectations, limitations behind and move on anyway?
    A challenge perhaps yet going ahead, with ‘right action’ is what matters.
    Congrats on the MARS – SATURN front!
  • Now as MARS meets LILITH this coming week, go with / come from what’s natural for and in you. Work with your time and resources (what you’re naturally good at, and what you have access to) , which is powerful and transformational (MARS / PLUTO – coming up end of the month!).
    Let Being in Your True Nature express itself. Work with your strengths, and be in your power.

 

Back to SATURN:
The ‘Ringed One’ is also stationary this month of April, since it goes retro on Apr 17 – at 9°9′ CAP (until Sep 6). 

If you have anything on or round 9° CAP (and also AR, CAN, LI) you probably notice the pressure. Yet, it’s the pressure of a chiseling away of what you don’t need anymore and actually, what you are NOT. 

I felt called to look up the Sabian Symbol for the SATURN station (haven’t brought those in in a while – being positively retro here, let’s see..):

“CAPRICORN 9°: AN ANGEL CARRYING A HARP

KEYNOTE: The revelation of the spiritual meaning and purpose at the core of any life situation.

This picture simply says, “Heaven is within us.” All we have to do is to be open and listen to the total harmony of life, a harmony in which we play a part that is necessary to the completeness and meaning of the whole. In order to do this we have to surrender our separative ego- consciousness and flow with the universal current which, to the religiously minded person, is the Will of God.

This is the fourth symbol of the series. The technique it implies is that of ATTUNEMENT to the rhythm of universal life. Angels are to be considered personalizations of various aspects of this life, and totally subservient to its rhythms and purposes.”

This much for the Ringed One teaching us to model ourselves after other Winged Ones… ❤

Yet also, to realize that we can (from a SATURN perspective) ‘repurpose’ situations (incl. those challenging ones that we suffer, resist, and judge) by connecting with their spiritual core (PLUTO) and inner nature (LILITH). Which brings them to a higher vibration, as we surrender to the Higher Order of the Universe to use us, for a higher purpose.

 

Speaking of Higher Power and Purpose…
PLUTO in CAP is also stationary this month at 21 / 22° CAP, as it will go retro on Apr 22 (until Sept 30) – just before MARS passes PLUTO (Apr 26).

I see this dynamic on a societal level (together with the URANUS / New MOON in MARS’s domain ARIES, in wide square with PLUTO / MARS) as a strong momentum for revolutionary uprising against dominating establishment that holds and abuses power and isn’t in integrity. 
True leadership requires integrity – one of the essentials (PLUTO) of CAP.


As SATURN (authority) and PLUTO (power) both go retro this month
(which happens yearly in April, yet: extra activated via the AR New Moon, MARS, and LILITH this year) these positions and institutions are being held accountable so that ‘real change’ can come from this.

On an inner / spiritual (PLUTO) level, any soulful action in integrity is powerful (MARS / PLUTO in CAP).  And we’re called to find inner authority (SATURN retro) and inner power (PLUTO retro) again.

 

JUPITER this year in (PLUTO ruled) SCORPIO helps with revelations of what used to be under cover, hidden, taboo, in the closet – to evoke a change for the better.
With JUPITER presently (until July 10) retro it’s time to re-visit certain ‘dark corners’ that might look scary yet are important to clear, process, and transform.

 

VENUS now in TAU is about to go into opposition with JUPITER in SCO – (also on Apr 17): Enjoying this precious human embodiment with all our sense perceptions comes with seeing the bigger picture (JUPITER) of impermanence and change (SCO).

VENUS – JUPITER connect with the Planetary Archetypes in CAP, namely: MARS / LILITH / PLUTO:
How can we work with this human dilemma and tension (the joy of being alive vs. the changefulness) without engaging in attachment and suffering, in a ‘simple’, deep and mature way?
Maybe starting with some acts of voluntary simplicity (phew, can be applied in so many ways…).

 

‘See you’ next time, in person here in Victoria, online, here on this ‘blog channel’, on my FB Page, or on the email Astro~News!
Next one: for the AR New Moon to the SCO – TAU Full Moon / the Wesak Moon.

Many Blessings for the Liberation Journey!

VENUS into TAURUS (March 30 – Apr 24): Enjoying Life-in-Spring!

29 Mar

Johfra Bosschart: Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian / Aries Warrior Takes a Rest)

SPRING comes into full bloom, as VENUS enters TAU tomorrow March 30!

Time to settle, enjoy Life-in-Spring, and our auspicious embodiment.

A beautiful, sensuous energy – ahhh!

Your TAURUS SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets and the House TAU occupies in your chart become a magnet, while VENUS travels through, until Apr 24.

Let VENUS show you how to slow down, cultivate pleasure and the arts, be in nature, and let your body be a temple of joy!

 

Spring by Italian Renaissance Painter G. Arcimboldo

Not really stressful, rather a calm, grounding, and powerful ‘weather’ for VENUS in ‘her

own’ TAURUS abode (one of the Zodiac signs ‘she’ rules)…

Sighhh of relief, after the (hopefully cathartic, possibly disruptive) URANUS contact exact on March 28, and the intense square with PLUTO, exact on March 23, while ‘she’ was in ARIES.
Hope you didn’t ‘sign up’ too fast, too furiously for a liaison of all sorts.
Thankfully, MERCURY retro in ARIES presently, and JUPITER in SCO this year are helping us too to not take things at face value….


So here they are:

VENUS in TAURUS Aspects (Dynamics with other Planetary Players) during the month of APRIL:

 

  • APR 7 & 10 (active all week):
    VENUS in TAU will go into realistic Earth Trine with the MOON and SATURN in CAP (Apr 7), and with MARS in CAP (Apr 10).
    Are you drawn to traditions, Elders, traditional values, working with the Earth, in a respectful and fulfilling way? You attract what you value, says VENUS.
    This is also a good time to attract people with whom to build and work, based on shared values.
    Rather than going for quick rush / quick fix, enjoy solid quality incl. quality time and what matters in the long run.
    Opportunities to attract / re-activate quality connections – from a place of integrity, simplicity, and maturity – more enjoyable!

 

  • APR 12 (active Apr 11 – 13 which is FRI the 13th – a VENUS / MOON Day of the Sacred Feminine!):
    VENUS (in ‘her’ own sign of TAU) will go into ‘sexy’ sextile with NEPTUNE in its ‘own’ sign PI (and the MOON in PI too – where VENUS is exquisitely ‘exalted’ – the LOVE-in-Unity)). 
    Let’s bring ourselves into a good vibration, literally being by the water / in nature in general, and let Mother Earth absorb and transmute our ‘stuff’, let go, release, and reconnect from there. Let’s be open, enjoy Life-in-Spring, attract from a loving vibration, and allow the Universe to bring you goodies!

 

  • APR 14:
    VENUS in TAU in Earth Trine with LILITH in CAP.
    Be in Nature, and in Your True Nature. Always the Best!
    Not that this inspiration ‘goes away’ when the aspect weakens a few days later.
    It’s a timeless theme, accentuated with accentuated growth opportunities mid-April.

 

  • APR 17:
    VENUS (and the MOON) in TAU will go into Opposition with JUPITER  retro in SCO, and into Earth Trine with stationary PLUTO in CAP.
    This is also the day when SATURN will go retro, and CHIRON will (temporarily) enter ARIES, plus the late AR SUN will pass URANUS on APR 18.

    A day ‘loaded’ with Planetary shifts and alignments. Earthy VENUS and her ‘allies’ are good balance.
    Groundedness and slow enjoyable pace and presence are beautiful and powerful – connected in the natural power of Life-in-Spring – while change is the only permanent.

 

  • APR 24 (two days after EARTH DAY):
    VENUS enters GEMINI (until May 19).
    De-Lightful Connections.

VENUS enters PISCES on Feb 10 (until March 6): Love IS.

8 Feb

Birth of Venus – Botticelli

 

From Feb 10 on, VENUS will make her yearly ‘appearance’ (or rather: sublimation) in PISCES where ‘she’ is traditionally ‘exalted’:

The most exquisite, undefined, ‘je ne sais quoi’ energy – call it ‘unconditional love’ / All IS Love – All IS Love’.  
Yet, this vibration can lead us mere mortals also into confusion, disillusionment, unrequited scenarios, out of victim consciousness, or / and due to projections / putting the ‘adored one’ on a pedestal (or having to escape the pedestal another puts us on). 
VENUS in PI is an energy of love and attraction that’s best expressed without attachment… 

This goes for any kind of attractions, not just ‘special Valentine’s’.

 

Ocean Bliss – Photo by Melanie, Feb 8, 2018

 

Here’s a Preview for all the ‘DATES’ VENUS in PISCES (Feb 10 – March 6, 2018) will have – many!

Feb 15:
VENUS in PI in sextile with SATURN in CAP.
Wow, the ‘Ringed’ One meets VENUS – a Valentine’s commitment?
Not to be taken lightly, says SATURN. Could be the ‘real deal’, yet without attachment (otherwise ‘she’ swims away…).

Feb 16:
VENUS in PI is met by the PI MOON.
Can it be sweeter than this… (except in the 7th Heaven)?
Yet, don’t mix up the movie with a real person.
And swim away from confusing / overwhelming ‘media showers’.

Feb 17 & 18:
MERCURY and the SUN follow VENUS into PISCES – and start a very PISCEAN season, until mid-March.
Surf the Waves, and Go with the Flow. Be open, connect, and receive.

Feb 21: 
VENUS in PI meets (her ‘higher octave’) NEPTUNE.
Love comes in so many ways – and waves. Love IS.

Feb 25:
VENUS in PI square MARS in SAG.
Sounds like a sweet & adventurous love affair / romance novel to me… (you name it).

Feb 27:
VENUS in PI in sextile with PLUTO in CAP.
Connection beyond Time and ‘Death’.

March 1:
VENUS in PI trine JUPITER in SCO.
Surrender, and you’re IN it.

March 4:
VENUS in PI conj. MERCURY and CHIRON.
Commune and connect, with and beyond words, poetry, and music. Be vulnerable, and open for the healing.


Blessings for this sublime month with VENUS in PISCES!

VENUS, the SUN, and MERCURY in AQ in Square with JUPITER in SCO and in Sextile with URANUS in ARIES (Feb 3/6, and 10/13/15): Liberation of Hidden Agenda in Group Consciousness.

3 Feb

Dramatic Lightning through the Clouds (Photographer unknown)

 

Early / mid Feb, we’ll see quite an interesting pattern:

First VENUS (Feb 3 / 6), then the SUN (Feb 10 / 13), finally MERCURY (Feb 13 / 15) in AQ will square JUPITER in SCO, and then go into sextile with URANUS (the ruler of AQ) now in ARIES!

This ‘smells’ like a political / societal scenario where (more?!) big (JUPITER) hidden agenda (SCO) can come to the light, likely revealed through revolutionary / liberating group consciousness (similar energy as in ‘Me too’, whistleblowers, etc.). 
The effect can be quite mind blowing, and ultimately liberating for groups and humanity altogether – yet again, as always with SCO where JUPITER ‘sits’ this year, the deep dark stuff needs to be processed, to provoke and support ‘Change for the Better’.

Of course, these alignments are also relevant for us personally and interpersonally in relationships:
Maybe some ‘storms’ need to bring things to the surface that are usually hidden, covered, and repressed, which clears the air, and frees us to be authentic.

Interesting that the last phase of these alignments ends with the Partial Solar Eclipse end of AQ, which is also on Feb 15.
This New Moon is an AQ Release Eclipse – inviting us to let go of Systemic / Group Consciousness that doesn’t serve anymore, and to go forward into co-creating the future. Maybe you’re already sensing it.

And to fully round it up, MERCURY in AQ (exalted there, remember? ‘Mind’ can function really well in AQ, be innovative and liberating) will meet the SUN in AQ, on Feb 17.

At this ‘Superior Conjunction’ exactly in-between two MERCURY retro phases, plus in the ‘best’ Zodiac energy for MERCURY it’s an excellent time for communication and co-invention.
A threshold, from the old system, to a new and innovative, synergistic co-creation!
What, and Whom are are you co-creating with???

MARS now in SAG surely helps with bringing the Truth out!

TAURUS – SCORPIO Full Moon (Nov 3 / 4): Finding our Ground, in the Changeful

3 Nov

Happy TAURUS Full Moon tonight (Nov 3 / 4)!

It’s also called the ‘Hunter’s Moon’.
What’s special about it astronomically? Is it a ‘SuperMoon’? Check out this cool article.

The Full Moon will be exact at 10:23 pm PDT on Nov 3 / 1:23 am EDT on Nov 4!

TAURUS is where the MOON is the strongest (called exalted in Astrology)! 
Nurturing Earth Mother energy. 
We certainly need grounding grounding grounding, with so many erratic, unprecedented, unpredictable vibrations swirling around (esp. in the cyber sphere, affecting the human mind).

NATURE is calling, (not only) this gorgeous Fall, and always here to support and hold us.
Go out, and en-JOY!

 

Dance of Change – Photo by Melanie, Oct 31, 2017

 

So important to hold the ground (TAURUS), and be the Centre, in a world of ‘opposites’ and oppositions… (we literally see strong opposing energies in the Full Moon chart – and of course: feel them!), yet also process in the Scorpionic Alchemy that transforms ‘lead into gold’, or depressing, heavy states into pure consciousness.

 

In the last few weeks, have you come through lots of emotional transformation, yet processed it faster than before?

Maybe because there’s such a collective acceleration and momentum (URANUS in AR)?
And we go now to deep core issues that are usually ‘left alone’ (SUN, MERCURY, and since 10/10 also big JUPITER in SCO!).

The key for the fixed energy of SCO is not to be ‘afraid of the dark’, not resist the dive and change (which is what TAU could easily do), or get stuck somewhere in the process, take it out on yourself, but process ‘all the way through’, to allow the Alchemy do its thing.
And yes, it goes in waves and isn’t a ‘final result’.
With NEPTUNE in PISCES we can open into the surfing and surrendering.
Perhaps we could start with honestly and gently asking: ”What’s even deeper than this?”

The SUN and JUPITER in SCORPIO go into supportive Water Trine with NEPTUNE this month which helps with dropping into the depth, and letting things ‘wash out’ and dissolve.

Yesterday morning, I came to Day 3 of a self-directed, online guided 30-day Yoga challenge (with Victoria based Do Yoga With Me).
The practice (a journey to the Firefly pose) was a perfect metaphor for the Full Moon in TAU – SCO:
Loved what happened in this process, even though I didn’t ‘make’ it into the pose. It was my first time playing with Firefly, and I stayed with it (TAU), ‘even though’ arm balances have been always a challenge, since my wrists hurt when I put too much pressure on them (SCO fear of hurting myself). But the prep in the previous two days, and the teacher Fiji’s clear, precise, motivating guidance helped me see what’s essential (shooting the body into two directions from a strong core) which in itself is a great awareness to practice with in daily life (esp. for tall people, ha-ha). Now it needs to land more in the body, with practice. Good to see how that’s already in place with other poses that are feet-grounded, like squat. I loved consciously finding genuine contentment in the place I was at – and being in the patience it’s calling for (TAU).

It all was indeed beautifully aligned with and metaphoric for the TAURUS – SCORPIO Full Moon:
Energies pulling us into two directions, as we’re invited to balance dropping into something that might feel scary but can be so transformational, and feeling the contentment in and patience with the Earth body for where it goes, currently.
And all the while holding ground from the core of our Being.

 

Speaking of Alchemy:

Just today, I felt called to do a physical (TAU) card spread on the TAU – SCO Full Moon chart, incl. LILITH going into CAP next week. 
The Black Obsidian crystal skull and heart had to ‘join the party’ in the SCO realm, of course.
See what showed up – for all of us:

 

 

I started with an Animal Spirit card (paintings by Susan Boulet) – brought in for LILITH crossing over the ‘Integrity Point’ from SAG into CAP next week (yet also connected to SCO and TAU):

SCARAB – Regeneration.
“To the Egyptians, the scarab, a type of beetle, symbolized the powers that governed the celestial bodies; a great scarab was thought to roll the Sun across the sky. This belief arose from the scarab’s habit to of shaping a piece of ox dung(!) into a ball, into which it laid its eggs, and rolling it about – generally from East to West. Scarab-like jewels were often placed in the tombs of deceased relatives to give hem the power of the Sun, and to facilitate their resurrection.”

What a symbology!
I love the Scarab. A ‘small’ animal, yet it carries potent Medicine.
Having been in Egypt in Nov 2010 – two friends and I started our journey intentionally under the SCO New Moon, and ‘happened to be’ under the TAU – SCO Full Moon at the Hathor Temple of the cow headed Mother Goddess – also a birthing temple, with the Dendara Zodiac – what a gift that magical alignment was!!! What a sight, and what a process at the time… (which is a story for another day 🙂 ).
And yesterday, the news about this amazing discovery of a mysterious void’ in the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The winged Scarab beetle is also  a ‘Rising Phoenix’.
‘Winged’ MERCURY will leave dark SCO,  cross the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO to SAG, and ‘take flight’ on SUN-day Nov 5.

MERCURY will be for a looong time in SAG, b.t.w – you guessed it! Because it will go retro there (Dec 2 – 22), starting from the ‘Integrity Point’ from SAG to CAP, where LILITH is now (yep!)!
More about it below in the chart description, and in a separate M-r post, of course!

Early Morning Prayer – Lotus with Orb – Photography by Helga Hendricks

The Scarab illustration on the card has a Blue Lotus blossom with a (tiny) Ankh in the centre on its back.

The Lotus is such a beautiful symbol of  the SCO – TAU dynamic, as it’s rooted in the swampy pond of apparent ‘decay’, yet grows to the light with such beauty and purity.

It’s also what the Buddha (nature) ‘sits on’:
All the often unprocessed, dark, hidden, murky emotions.
Sitting with them (TAU) in meditation, acknowledging  them without getting pulled in and stuck, and doing processing (lots of that required, these very scorpionic days / months / year) helps them come to the light of consciousness, where they – like Vampires in the sunlight… eventually die (some harder than others…).

I’m stunned at how the Scarab, apparently just showing up for LILITH, connects to so many strands of the Full Moon ‘landscape web’.

 

The next card – this time from the Voyager Tarot deck – that I picked was for the SUN in SCO (close to JUPITER, freshly in SCO, and VENUS, still in LI):

Major Arcana XIV – ART.

‘Overseen’ by Pallas Athena – Greek patroness of the City of Athens, hence goddess of Art and Culture, Philosophy inspiration, and vision (rainbow) – ART is visionary. Life is ART in action.
ART is Alchemy – see the cauldron…
Creativity (the SUN) is an alchemical Art of ‘inter-weaving’ and combining ‘ingredients’ into new syntheses. The creative process is an inner alchemical process too, as it transforms and integrates us.

Of course, this card is very apropos (couldn’t be a better one actually, for) the ‘Alchemy Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO where VENUS in LI, and JUPITER / SUN in SCO sit.
All these Archetypes are here to help us ‘dive’ into the process of change – just as the stunningly beautiful foliage this Fall, on its ‘last dance’.

Pallas Athena even gives us a clue how to channel MARS – further ‘back’ and unaspected, in early LIBRA (until Dec 9), into decisive, determined, and ‘courageous’ acts of ART.
The Goddess Pallas Athena has a strong ‘Masculine’ – and was born not out of a female body but ‘out of her father Zeus’s forehead’.

As an ‘Asteroid Goddess’ (yep, Pallas is an Asteroid), she represents qualities of the ‘Father Daughter’. Let’s channel her energy not so much into compliance with the patriarchy but into Acts of Art (rather than war) to help the status quo alchemize and transform.

 

The third card that I picked was for the MOON in TAU, not far from URANUS in late AR (which it passed yesterday). From the West Coast perspective, with CANCER Rising at the exact time of the Full Moon, the MOON also ‘rules’ the chart, AND is in ‘her’ exalted position of TAURUS:

Major Arcana XVII – STAR.

For the photo, I held the card up …
Showing a most beautiful image of Kuan Yin, Chinese Goddess of Compassion, holding a Jade Rabbit, her dress flowing like / in the Star shower.
STAR represents Luminosity (like the Full Moon tonight, illuminated by the Solar Light). Kuan Yin stands in the Star shower, and transmits it – a compassionate Star-Mother-Goddess. She helps others with life giving nurturance (TAU), and brings light into the darkness to nourish the soul (SCO).
Kuan Yin is associated with AQ (and I once called the AQ – PI cusp ‘Kuan Yin Point’ of the Zodiac – blessings for Humanity – one of the manifestations). And the MOON is still close to URANUS, ruler of AQ.

So, from a grounded, nurtured TAU MOON place, let’s transmit the Light into Darkness, show up with compassion, yet be detached enough (AQ Goddess) to not get emotionally pulled in, or attached to what’s sticky, nor to an outcome. 🙂 Everything changes in its own pace, yet we can offer light and care.

 

I just love how the ancient cultures of Egypt (Scarab), Greece (Athena), and China (Kuan Yin) came together in Alchemy for this spread!

Also pointing to LILITH moving over into ancient / timeless CAP next week:

We are the Ancients Ones. We are the Timeless Ones.
Let’s invoke the Ancestors (biological, star family, cultural resonance, and esp: the Inner Elder…) to live the Wisdom in the World, and Be the Change!

 

Here’s the chart of the Full Moon and ‘her entourage’:

 

… i.o.w., with all the cosmic, archetypal ‘Players’ of the Solar System.
Focusing on the SUN / MOON axis which is a ‘big deal’.

Re: SATURN square CHIRON, yesterday Nov 2 (of course catalyzed by the Full Moon), check out this Blog post.
Re: LILITH into CAP on Nov 8, see Blog post here.

 

A quick word about VENUS in late LIBRA opposite URANUS in late AR, exact also today Nov 3, at 10:02 pm PDT – just 20 min before the Full Moon, and actually quite close to the Full Moon axis (see cards):

How can we be in balance with our authenticity and freedom, and in right relationship with significant partners in our life (or in fact in any partnership that presents itself – even ‘just spontaneously, in the moment)?
Honouring that there can be a dilemma is a first helpful step.
Rather than wildly reacting (which URANUS in AR might do) stepping back, and seeing the situation from ‘the other’s’ perspective or even the mirror effect (sometimes strangely so) for us is really helpful. Been there…  even ‘just’ this week – at several occasions, in fact.

 

Now to the main theme:
SUN – MOON, at 12° TAU – SCO.

Just over the last days, we’ve entered the mid-SCO (10 – 20°) season, where potent energy ‘sits’ and deep change happens, incl. IN us. It’s the Centre of Fall!
The Full MOON is in mid-TAU where desires and wants might come up, and nourishment is important. Yet SCO says: Purge and change!
Finding our Ground – the deep Ground of Being – in the Changeful, is the way of being in Balance.

Maybe other potent (and admittedly often intense) TAU – SCO Polarities have come up for you too, to reconcile, ‘digest’, and transform.
Here are examples:

TAURUS – SCORPIO, as in:

Nature – Culture.
In conflict? Or harmoniously integrated? Thought this morning, on that note: Here in Victoria, we feed to and on each other’s creativity, while being nourished by Nature that’s so inspiring and ever-changing. An on-going Alchemy.
Important to preserve Nature, i.m.o., with so much ‘City’ as in: ‘Construction culture’ pushing in. I call it: A contemporary Gold Rush.

Life – Death.
The seasons of Nature and of our Human Nature. A dynamic on-going process, actually. There’s always something dying, there’s always something new arising. Is Death the opposite of Life?

Pleasure – Pain.
Well, those! Sensations, feelings, they’re also changeable, of course, even though it sure doesn’t seem so, quite often, and one seems (for most of us) more ‘attractive’ than the other. Attachment to either causes suffering. Let’s ask the Buddha… and sit with it.

Habits – Change.
Well, that ‘dance’ could be a good thing – if we change habitual destructive tendencies – or not, if we abandon a healthy habit…. What comes to awareness? Which habits are you ready to change? What’s the deeper need in that habit, is really the question.

Stuckness – Transformation.
Similarly, if we’re emotionally, mentally, or physically stuck in a funk, we probably welcome tools for transformation. Like: Change the environment, go out, walk, breathe, move things through the body, take a rest, a bath… maybe it’s just energy that needs to shift, or be digested through all your ‘stomachs’ :-).

J / H

Stop ‘feeding the demons’ and ‘hungry ghosts’ as Buddhists call it, i.o.w., ‘sitting’ and and dwelling on (self) destructive thoughts and feelings.
SCO low vibrations are cynical, secretive, mistrusting, suspicious, manipulative, hurtful, basically out of fear of death, and loss of control (who’s talking here? The separate ego of course).
Shedding light on the core of the matter might be important, before the energy can shift / internally transform into a higher and more truly powerful vibration.

When we face our darkness we may discover our soul power.

Money – Power
Why is TAU related to Money? Because of the TAU association with value, gain, growth, assimilation, anything ‘green and growing’. Uhhh, those… Bull Market – yep, Taurean. Yet, when money is stuck it starts to ‘stink’ and needs to be moved and spread around like manure. Making money is rather Taurean, while spending, investing, paying taxes, and being in dept is Scorpionic. Which of course can bring up Power issues, like: “I owe them. They ‘own’ me / my freedom.
Is Money really Power? Is Value Power?

“Money is like manure. Does no good until it’s spread around.”

We (hopefully) have the Power to put the money into what we value, and offer truly valuable services in exchange for money.
In that case it’s rather the power of synergistic, ‘fertilizing’ exchange than the divisive association of Money with Power ‘over’ – which is on the way out anyway, in the Economy of Change.

Accumulating – Eliminating.
TAU is the gatherer, vs. SCO is the purger. TAU rules the mouth, SCO the large intestines (really!)

Both functions are needed in Nature and in our human biology. Shopping, cooking, eating, enjoying, and indulgence are all TAU related. The word ‘stuffocated’ came up for me a few weeks ago – a low vibration of our TAU consumer world.
Do you feel going through a purge, detox, decluttering would be on for you and your home / life, to allow the energy to move again more freely, and create space for the new?
Rather than just ‘dumping’ things (which can be also hard for the gatherer / horder in you), how can you creatively re-purpose and re-cycle what has outlived its purpose, what needs to go into the Alchemy, and perhaps have a new life elsewhere?

Sensual – Sexual.
Physical – Emotional Intimacy.
Clearly, a big and deep topic. How’s the balance of both in your life?
Of course, trust is required in the exchange of energies.
Nourishment of Body and Soul…

 

SCORPIO is BIG this JUPITER year (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018).

This is the first Full Moon of the JUPITER in SCO year, shining MOON light at SUN / JUPITER.
Being grateful (JUPITER) for the Life that’s given, the body and the place we currently inhabit, the Earth that sustains us, and the ever changing Nature are good ways of letting ourselves sink deeper into the Mystery of Life. 

 

Coming up in the SCO Show in the next while:

The SUN in SCO will go into Water Trine with NEPTUNE in PI tomorrow, Nov 3.

Rather than feeling overwhelmed by so much emotionally challenging stuff, and burying ourselves, let’s bring light and consciousness (SUN) to what’s revealing itself on deeper levels now – a gift perhaps – if you dare to look. Sometimes we have to feel things fully (SCO), stay connected (NEP in PI) to realize we’re ONE.

VENUS crosses the ‘Alchemy Point’, and starts ‘her’ underworld journey in SCO on Nov 7 – until Dec 1:
We’re drawn to go deeper in relationships, attracted to mystery, and might also attract lots of things that need processing. Dive in, and move through, with Love!
 

VENUS will join JUPITER in SCO on Nov 13.

JUPITER will be actually unaspected until then (no connection with another planet, except for MOON activations)!
A double-edged sword… Even though, VENUS – JUPITER is a wonderful connection (a la grand wedding etc), in SCO it’s not all Roses (and definitely thorns involved).
What attracts and bonds you to your loved and not-so-loved ones?
What are your soul agreements?
What can be brought out into the open and to awareness now? Perhaps to outgrow it?

 

 

How’s it going so far, with diving into the Alchemy?
Could you use support and perspective?

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

You can find out more about the Deep Dive Sessions at my FB Page Event.
If you’re new to my services I welcome you to get in touch before booking, if you have preliminary questions, and to get to know each other a bit before we ‘dive in’.

JUPITER into SCORPIO (Oct 10, 2017 – Nov 9, 2018) :: Deep Dive into the Alchemy

9 Oct

Mighty JUPITER has come to the end of its 13-month journey through LIBRA (09/09, 2016 – 10/10, 2017), and moves over theTipping Point’ into SCORPIO tomorrow, Oct 10!

Harvesting the LIBRAN gifts that JUPITER has brought with questions like these can be quite fruitful:

  • What have you seen more clearly about relationships with significant others and yourself IN relatedness, over the last year? 
  • What did you attract in others as a reflection of yourself (missing parts, blind spots, shadow projection)?
  • Which important choices came up for you, and how did you go about choosing wisely?
  • How do you go about restoring inner and outer peace and balance, in a world of turmoil (JUPITER in LI has been opposed by URANUS in ARIES 3 times, in Dec 2016, March and Sept 2017)?

The area of life related to LIBRA in your chart (House, Planets) has been ‘blown up’ over the last year, so that there can be more SPACE around it that allows for (mutual) growth.

 

 

On the LIBRA – SCORPIO ‘Tipping Point’,

Choices (or a Choiceless Choice?) lead to Change!
Choosing from Peace.
Deep Journey into Change.

The cusp from LIBRA to SCORPIO is not ‘just’ a Tipping Point.

 
It’s also an ‘ALCHEMY Point’, and a Magical Zone.

New Life Unfurling in the Fall – Photo by Melanie, Oct 2017

SO much MAGIC is showing up these days – if we invite it, and are open and grateful (JUPITERian qualities)!

I’ve been blessed with a whole domino effect of Magic at and since a personal retreat this Thanksgiving weekend, where a recurring theme has been ‘Free Fall into the Timeless’ 
Inquiries like:
Freedom that has no opposite.
Love that has no opposite.
…have been gifts that open tremendous SPACE – very JUPITERian…

And then, intimate encounters (LIBRA – SCORPIO) with Nature Beings (Plants, Trees, Animals, the Elements) have shown me the Timelessness yet natural Timeliness they’re always in.
What they teach me in that moment is just perfectly what resonates and what I need to hear. What looks like ‘synchronicities’ seems more the result of naturally being ‘at the right time at the right place’ without resisting, without ulterior agenda.

The Wisdom of Nature, and the Intimacy with Life as it Unfolds….

It can’t be actually described and talked about (as airy LIBRA would like to – which would also lead to Libran comparisons…) since it’s a very visceral sense of what happens – the SCORPIO realm.

Have you tapped into the ‘Magic Zone’ and the Alchemy too, these days?

On the ‘Alchemy Point’ encounters happen, and  ‘ingredients’ are ‘married’, to co-create something bigger than the sum of them.
If the ‘match’ is magical powerful change is afoot!
JUPITER into SCORPIO shows us opportunities to go into magical and alchemical change – if we trust the Unknown…
 

Alchemy Retort. Medieval painting,. Origin unknown.

…and dig deeply into our taboo, repressed, or emotionally (apparently) controlled experiences, are offered now (galore!) to alchemically / psychologically / spiritually, or even ‘just’ instinctively process them.

Which can reveal hidden treasures and powerful resources that we might have buried from the world and ourselves.
We don’t know yet what’s ‘behind the veil’ and underneath the cover. That’s the whole point.
Who knows what comes from that?!
 

A lot (JUPITER) is due for transformation now.
In Society and the World at large, and in our personal inner worlds.
My sense is, A LOT of hidden agenda will be revealed in the World which inevitably leads to change.

JUPITER in LIBRA has brought the themes of relatedness, fairness, equality, balance, and peace so strongly to our awareness…
Not that it’s ‘all good’ in that realm as ‘benefic JUPITER’ has visited that realm (as the old-world polarized / simplistic Astrology would have suggested) – in fact it can have the opposite effect.

If there’s a ‘formula’ for a JUPITER Transit, it’s more like:
The theme gets bigger, so that we can fully SEE what’s going on there (a magnifying glass effect), to create space around it,  and use the opportunities to outgrow the old.

People and other ‘partners’ (even shadow projections) have come into our lives who show us a mirror (LIBRA) of what’s due for transformation (SCO).

Now, JUPITER in SCO helps us with processing what’s ‘in the dark’ – maybe because the theme is everywhere, lots of others are ‘coming out’ with taboos and under cover issues, and massive processing is going on.

Having found good partners (LIBRA), and being in good relations with others who also go into depth and darkness (SCO) can help. Whether they are physically present, or whether there’s lots of space between you – even all around the globe (JUPITER).
Yet, it’s of course an ‘inside job’ for everyone – with the inner JUPITERian Mentor on your side. No other person can do it ‘for you’.
It’s your inner access to nature-ALL Power (SCO). 

Power of Love?
Power of Freedom?
Finding a motto that speaks deeply to you and guides you on the Journey can help.

 

SCORPIO, PLUTO, and the Shadow

SCO is ruled by PLUTO which is more outwardly ‘active’ again as it’s going direct / forward from Earth perspective, since Sept 28, calling us to follow the Power of the ‘Body Wisdom’ (Sabian Symbol for the PLUTO Turning Point degree at 17 CAP) for empowered change.

The ‘original’ PLUTO in our chart points to our inner Power Centre in the Core of our Being, or rather:
How historic / societal conditioning has repressed and controlled our Power, and what needs to transform in us to step into it.


Similar to Persephone’s decent into the realm of PLUTO / Hades in Fall where an Initiation happens before ‘she’ and Nature come back in Spring, we might need to ‘dive’ into our inner ‘Underworld’ in the next while, for a deep regeneration and re-empowerment from within.

Perhaps to alchemically transform the ‘lead’ of ego consciousness into the ‘Gold’ of the pure Self.
Not by ‘killing’ the ego (which still comes from a dualistic / separative ego consciousness) but by making it conscious, by exposing the dark and sticky attachments that drain our energy like a vampire to the light.

Jekyll / Hyde

How do we recognize the ego’s ways?
In SCO, it ‘should be’ actually quite easy because it can get so intense when it displays low vibrational responses of…
…obsessions, compulsions, and various needs for control, as if there were inner demons that have a hold on you, or ‘hungry ghosts’ (a Buddhist term for desires that can never be satisfied – the belly is always bigger than the mouth).
And since these things are embarrassing, there’s a shame factor involved as well that keeps things under wraps – which can create a vicious circle.

The energy is often released through behavioral symptoms like being secretive, involving ‘allies’ into one’s ’cause’ and controlling them, being cynical, hurtful (knowing where to ‘bite’ others in their vulnerable side) in order to not get hurt, being manipulative…
Sometimes behind all this is a deep fear of death – the ultimate loss of control.
In SCO strong and deep emotions (SCO is a fixed Water sign) can be hermetically sealed in the Alchemy retort.

JUPITER in SCO brings Awareness to all this, has us face our hidden sides, inner darkness and inner light, and (RE)discover our Soul Power that’s the catalyst for change.

Awareness, witnessing, and holding space (JUPITER) is often ‘all’ it takes to let things run their course and to outgrow them gradually.
After all, the pristine Lotus Flower too, is rooted in the murky Scorpionic swamp.

 

Here is the JUPITER-into SCORPIO chart – viewed from Victoria BC.

 

As you see, JUPITER leads into SCO.
It catalyzes the other planetary Archetypes and their alignments into the Alchemy:

SUN / MERCURY – rather than letting the Mind run the show, be mindful and conscious of what’s going on;
VENUS / MARS opposing CHIRON, in T-square with SATURN / LILITH – rather than a wounding battle of the sexes that goes nowhere, except into old patterns and beliefs, a sacred union that heals and points to the ultimate unknowable…

MERCURY (on Oct 17), the SUN (on Oct 22), VENUS (on Nov 1), and MARS (on Dec 9) will follow into SCORPIO.
When these personal planets / planetary Archetypes unite with JUPITER their qualities get enhanced through a deepening:

MERCURY / JUPITER (Oct 19): More depth through communication that goes under the skin.
SUN / JUPITER (Oct 26 – also the day of MOON / PLUTO!): Massive Consciousness about the Change that’s needed and is under way.
VENUS / JUPITER (Nov 13): Magnetized by the Power of Love.
MARS / JUPITER (Jan 7): Radical Purge and Transformation.

Every month, the intense and powerful SCORPIO MOON will unite with JUPITER which can evoke deep, amplified emotions – quite the time for purging and alchemical change from within – maybe after a few rounds. Be gentle with yourself and your environment, as you get ‘a hang of it’. And have a MOON calendar at hand..
First encounters of JUPITER / MOON in SCO:
Oct 19 (right after the late LI New Moon!), Nov 16, Dec 14.

 

JUPITER’s Gifts for SCORPIOS & SCORPIO Mini Generations


JUPITER in SCO offers this year extraordinary opportunities for a deepening and expansion of consciousness for whole groups of ‘SCO Mini Generations’, and of course for everyone with SUN, MOON, AC, and personal Planets (MERCURY, VENUS, MARS) in SCO.


Whichever Planetary Archetype is in SCO for you gets enhanced – with the opportunity to be alchemically transformed into coming even more from Soul Power – which changes everything.

What are the ‘SCORPIO Mini Generations’?
All of us born with slow moving, societal (JUPITER, CHIRON, SATURN) and transpersonal, evolutionary Planets (URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO) in SCORPIO.

And that’s a LOT of us!
B.t.w., I give the whole time spectrum from first entry into SCO until final exit, incl. brief intervals back in LIBRA or forward in SAG. In doubt get in touch with me, and I can let you know from your birth chart, or set up your chart if you don’t have it yet.

Here are the ‘Mini Generations’, with ‘working titles’.
Expanding on their generational themes would be a topic for another, extensive blog post – perhaps during JUPITER in SCO?

PLUTO in SCO – The Magicians
Nov 1983 – Nov 1995

NEPTUNE in SCO – The Mystics
Oct 1956 – Nov 1970

URANUS in SCO – The Liberators
Nov 1974 – Nov 1981

CHIRON in SCO – The Shamans
Nov 1946 – Nov 1948
Jan 1997 – Sept 1999

SATURN in SCO – The Masters of Transformation
Oct 1953 – Oct 1956
Dec 1982 – Nov 1985
Oct 2012 – Sept 2015

North Node in SCO – New Values through Deep Change
Oct 1956 – May 1958
June 1975 – Dec 1976
Jan 1994 – Aug 1995
Sept 2012 – March 2014

JUPITER in SCO – Deep Dive into the Alchemy
Oct 1934 – Nov 1935
Sept 1946 – Oct 1947
Jan 1958 – Oct 1959
Dec 1969 – Feb 1972
Dec 1981 – Dec 1982
Nov 1993 – Dec 1994
Nov 2005 – Nov 2006

 

These phases of Planets moving through SCORPIO had a certain signature / Zeitgeist.
Maybe you remember some of them, how they changed you, through going through a deep psychological process, esp. related to the area in your life related to the SCORPIO House in your chart. 

 

Now, as JUPITER initiates SCORPIO again, we’re all exposed to more depth, to SEE and be fully aware of what’s been hidden (incl. what we were hiding from ourselves), to process and purge deep stuff and ‘dark matter’, and allow it to transform into pure ‘Gold’.

May we come out deeply changed, perhaps like a Phoenix out of the Ashes, having burnt off and outgrown old consciousness, when JUPITER crosses the ‘Phoenix Point’ on Nov 9, 2018!

 

You’re invited to a private JUPITER in SCORPIO Deep Dive Session, during the first month of JUPITER in SCORPIO (10 / 10 – 11 / 11, 2017), where we intentionally, and with the astrological map & compass, plus the synchronistic support of Voyager Tarot & Animal Spirit cards, go into, and focus on:
  • What’s being cleared away now, from your ‘inner basement / closet’?
  • Where is deep transformation now possible in your Life, what does it take to go INTO it, and how do you meet the landscape you meet there?
  • What’s the Alchemy that presents itself?
  • What does that mean for your ‘outer’ world, above the surface?

Please find upcoming Astro~Experiences as well as offers, plus almost daily updates (more frequently than here on the Blog), incl. YouTube videos, on my FB Page:
Astrology for Self Realization.
Welcome!

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gifts of Astrology!
