The Sun is about to enter the sign of Scorpio, on the 23rd and Mercury follows along, on the 28th. Saturn makes a debut, in the sign of Libra. Moving into its’ date with destiny; the first of a series of squares to Pluto in Capricorn. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, and at this time of the year, we are all naturally attuned to the necessity for periodical cleanses and purification in our lives. How the potent square affects you, will depend on its’ placement in your personal natal chart. As a generalization, we can assume that Saturn in Libra, is about maintaining order in a peaceful way. Saturn however, is neither at home nor comfortable in the sign of Libra. The status quo is being upturned and overhauled, by the sometimes ruthless Plutonic urges, to reform all in its’ wake. No matter how pretty we try to make it all look on the external; if the core is out of balance, no amount of cover-up will suffice. And speaking of cover-ups, keep your eye, on the big picture, as many will now be exposed. Greed for personal and monetary gain, at the expense of people and the Planet, will no longer be tolerated. Saturn wants justice, and fairness for all. Squares produce tension, and there will be a lot of that, however, tension is just the thing that is needed to produce the momentum for change. Move in accordance with these modifications, or you will be swept up in a furious tide of uncertainty and confusion. Surrender your attachments, and find peace in your heart.
FULL MOON 10 Taurus 30 November 03, 2009 03:15 a.m.
ARIES: Mars fresh, in the sign of Leo, is bringing everyone’s ego to the forefront of their interactions. Take a close look how yours is behaving. If you find yourself going into reaction, it could well be, that it is your ego, rather than logic, common sense or reason, responding to a situation. Of course, it is not necessary to have either reason or logic, in play, when the heart is concerned. Love knows no need, for reason, when the innate intelligence of the body, is called into play. The Higher Intelligence, always knows what’s best.
TAURUS: Venus continues, in the ‘let’s keep it all nice’, sign of Libra, this fortnight. Make the most of this reprieve, before the onset of the challenges, in November. Spend a little time with the beloved, or friends, or family, in a harmonious way. Arrange some gatherings, for tender exchange, with the intention to promote peace, and understanding. Find your community of like-minded souls, which will become, your family members, when you are all requiring love, support and nourishment in the days to come. Make music, dance, sing and enjoy good food.
GEMINI: Mercury in Scorpio, looking for depth of communication now. Moving closely with the Sun and relaying her messages, and revelations to all. This is your job, then, this fortnight. Reveal what your investigations, have exposed. Make your contacts with others, deep and meaningful. You are a very insightful person, who has much more to offer, than appears at face value. Take this opportunity, to reveal the other aspects of your multi-faceted personality. You can be a reliable support, for those who are experiencing confusion, at this time.
CANCER: Moon cycle, began in Libra, and what an interesting thing, that this is when Saturn moves into this sign also. At some point during its’ journey you will be confronted with the Libran tendency to be nice, and gloss over emotions, with the appropriate words, as camouflage to deeply held or buried emotions. Pay close attention, that this is not you, and if you find it is, feel your feelings, and they will reveal to you, the nature of their origin. From there you can take the necessary steps to change your thinking processes. The ones that created them in the first place.
LEO: While the Sun travels through Scorpio, you are generally exposed to the deeper side of life. While preferring to keep everything light and fun, this can present you with a few personal challenges. At times, it is necessary to lay aside frivolity, when it is not the appropriate mode of behavior. You may come across those situations, which require a little more composure and deep understanding, compassion and sharing, over the coming weeks. Be about the other business, which you do so well, of sharing unending dedication, in the form of Love.
VIRGO: Saturn leaves your sign now, although revisits, for a stint, mid 2010. The time is fast approaching, when you get to apply all that you’ve learned over the past 2 years. Often the personal healing journey, allows us to share what we have experienced along the way, in a loving and empathic way, with those suffering a similar plight. If you find yourself in this position, know that the results of your kindness, will be a blessing, to both you and the recipient. There is no need for rewards, and this too, is part of the understanding, you’ve received.
LIBRA: A time to bid farewell to this window of Birthday Blessing. You can look forward to a year of deep healing, and profound and lasting changes on the heart level. The only thing required is Gratitude, on a continual basis. With this daily practice of remembering your gifts, criticism and complaining will naturally leave your life. Saturn now, sojourns through your sign and brings with it, the eternal patience, which is needed to achieve your goals and aspirations.There is much solace, in the understanding and acceptance of life cycles.
SCORPIO: Saturn and Pluto, creating tension for all, includes you. Pluto already bringing work modifications to your life, continues over these coming weeks, to weed out any unnecessary procedures and at times making dramatic changes to the way you present yourself. If you get the urge to cut your hair, or change your wardrobe; redecorate your dwelling, or move altogether, let it come as no surprise. Perhaps you’re heading in the direction of a more authentic you. At times, it is necessary to go the way of the radical, and be an activist, when it comes to matters of Truth.
SAGITTARIUS: Your life, has begun to take on a life its’ own, so to speak. There appears to be this natural momentum picking up the pace of all that you do. An exuberance and a determination, with a very optimistic approach to everything. You are, more than ever, seeing the big picture, with very expanded horizons and it is therefore easy for you to maintain a clear and positive vision. Great, because so many are needing this now. Get out and network. Communicate what you see, and your picture of reality. Find a way to present your visions, so that others understand.
CAPRICORN: If you are feeling like there is a volcano, inside of you, about ready to erupt, it could well be the case. Pluto is often likened to that as a symbol. All it needs is a catalyst to set in motion, the inevitable shower of molten lava. Saturn acts as that, or the provocative force, which promotes action. Saturn as your ruler, and Pluto in your sign, makes you also a catalyst in the lives of others, to bring the necessary purge and release, of no longer needed, buildups. They can be physical or emotional, for both you and those around you.
AQUARIUS: Jupiter striding ahead in your sign, and the continued dance of Uranus and Neptune, places in you a fine position to be of assistance, during these trying times. God knows, that some need to stay balanced and grounded, or at least, cosmically attuned, while others are flailing. Take the initiative and set in motion, some of your long held beliefs and ideas. New solutions, which will be much sought after, in the days to come. This will be the opportunity, you’ve been waiting for, to promote your off-beat and hair-brain schemes.
PISCES: These coming weeks, are probably a good time, to ground yourself, in the familiar, and to place yourself in a place where you feel deeply nurtured. It is all too easy for you, to become unstuck, by the emotional turmoil of others, unless you are, at first, grounded and centered. If you are one who has solidified your spiritual nature, then you can be of much assistance to those, experiencing loss or chaos. At the end of the day, it is your call; it is your life. And maybe for many of you, it is a balancing act between the two. Assistance and retreat.
