Happy Magical Birthdays, Scorpios!

Scorpio Dark and Light, Hood

Scorpio is the sign of the Underworld, the time of All Saints and Souls, The Day of the Dead. Also, resurrection, the Phoenix rising from its own ashes! There is a time for all seasons.

Observation, keen insights are common craft. There is a timeless pervasiveness. Strengthening comes from the most extreme experiences, racing your motorcycle facing death, having wealth beyond expectation, unfathomable love.

The sweet within, the dark of the unknown, down, down, down, we are curiously walking, feeling our way, until we sit in saturation and become one with it. We may listen to silence, become very still, even monastic. We could drift for awhile, come to a cross road. We may choose to return to the Light, regaining ground, rising, peeking out, seeing with new vision. Entire worlds others know nothing of may exist within us, powering our torch.

Young and lean, the prowess of a panther, or wizened and withered, Scorpio wizard charisma, draws us to them. They can speak of the unspeakable, are unafraid to hear our story, our deepest fears, greatest powers, and we come away healed another degree. We are naked in Spirit, relieved of another layer of blindness, liberated from our own doing. We now realize there are others like us, many others! This true power is core, at our root being. It’s hypnotic by simply being what it is, raw.

Love with these Beings is as no other, volcanic passion. Union is truly the ‘Little Death!’ Ecstasy is an explosion, loss of ordinary consciousness. Love can be so powerful it aches. Once experienced, this potency makes you never want to go back to anything less wonderful. And it wakes you up to the amazing possibilities in all things! Your life is forever changed.

The Psychic Surgeon continues to clear the Soul. Unencumbered it catches every scent. It knows the subtlest forms, nuances of joy and beauty. The earth exudes her exotic ripe richness, the winds whisper messages, fire clears and opens our receivers, water’s touch swirls the mix and covers us with its Magic!

Scorpio has many Voices. Silence is powerful, profound. Meditation takes you to many worlds without moving your feet. You can hear the lizard’s feet as they scamper over the rocks, or on a quiet morning, a crow’s toes as they walk the street. The protective warning hiss of a snake or the growl of a person in pain that really doesn’t want to hurt you but feels cornered. The sound and shadow of eagle feathers overhead or zooming by at stupendous speed startles you more alive. All are signs to live by.

We often say, Steady in the Light. There is a balance. Also be Steady in the Dark. Learn the goodness in shorter days; the earth is resting. Enjoy the dark for her deeper quiete Grace. Love the Ones you can no longer see, but are in a different dimension. Enjoy the stars in the limitless Heavens. Let go of fears of the Unknown; learn how to navigate well wherever you are. Fears can be snap-of-the-fingers remarkably short lived!

Scorpio, Double, Sun & Ascendant, Stellium, Chloe Sevigny

Nov 18, 1974 Chloë Sevigny, model, icon fashion designer, actress, has her Mercury, Ascendant, Mars, Sun and Venus in Scorpio, a double Scorpio with a four planet Scorpio stellium! Her Venus is sextile Uranus, giving her a wild range of looks, from schoolgirl innocence, schoolmarm to leathers, T-shirt to sophisticate, everything in between! With that and her Mars in her first house, she has succeeded in contemporary independent cinema. Jupiter trine her Mercury/Asc has made her famous but with caveats. It is also square her Neptune, a quiet obscurity, and inconjunct her Pluto (Scorpio’s planet), privacy. She has an unusual quirky little smile, and by many is considered androgynous looking, another Uranian trait, rather undefinable. Scorpio loves a good mystery and, as a sympathizer, the gay community loves her.

Her Sun and Venus together in Scorpio has given her a keen sense of beauty, more than a little seductive charisma, and at times a Birth of Venus ala painter Sandro Botticelli look. It’s uncanny when you look at her images.

She’s quite a woman. In 1994, her personal style attracted the attention of journalist Jay McInerney, who wrote a 7-page article about her for The New Yorker, in which he called a then 19-year-old Sevigny the “coolest girl in the world.” In 2000, she won the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award for best female celebrity style, making her one of the coolest women in the industry! In a 2009 interview she said she was content with the level of stardom she had maintained. She had decided to never be a celebrity at the level where people hunted her, chased her. She said, ‘I think that’s why I’ve chosen to do the work that I do and just kind of work with directors that I love and try and do work that means something to me.’ She walks the fine line between success, and the way she has success, quite well.


Happy Halloween, Samhain!

Scorpio Son Doong Cave Vietnam

Talk about the UnderWorld! Sơn Đoòng Cave, Mountain River Cave, in Vietnam, is the world’s largest, 5.5 miles long, the largest chamber 500′ high! And it’s beautiful! Discovered in 2009, few have seen it. It’s so huge it’s surreal!

Scorpios, take us with you to sacred secret places within. Let us heal together from the inside out, rise from the ashes together!

The Magic of Love and New Beginnings!

Five days of New Beginnings! New Moon, Solar Eclipse, Venus, Moon, Sun at ZERO degrees, Sun, Venus, Mars Sign Changes, four Occultations, Mercury turning Direct!

Our New Moon, Fall Solar Eclipse, is Oct 23, the first day of SCORPIO! Oct 22 – 23 Moon, Mercury retrograde, Venus and Sun make a four planet Stellium (grouping) in Libra! The 23rd Sun, Venus, then Moon move into Scorpio within hours and minutes of each other, soon to join Saturn already there. What was a Libra Stellium, at 2:10 PM Pacific becomes a four planet Stellium in Scorpio! This New Moon will be the first of Five in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, that are all at ZERO degrees!

In four days there are four potent occultations, another word for eclipses. These are more potent than conjunctions because not only are the planets aligned along the path of the constellations across the sky right to left, but they are at the same height above the Ecliptic (the Sun’s path)! This means they are perfectly aligned in line of sight! So you see, eclipses are all conjunctions, but all conjunctions are not eclipses. The energy of eclipses is unavoidable, a perfect two way exchange, no near misses. 

  • Oct 22  2:26 PM Pacific Moon in Libra eclipses Mercury retrograde. Moon senses the true balance, regard. The relationship you were thinking of may be forever lost, or temporarily shadowed, in a more gripping event or concept. Schedule a follow up meeting. Offer a better alliance with more tasty options. Mercury, usually logical, finds itself considering feelings as well as ideas, and though confused perhaps at first, is able to adroitly express and convey a more tonal quality to the meaning of its words. A fusion, greater impact is possible. Libra wants that Union.
  • Oct 23  2:12 PM  Moon eclipses Venus 20 minutes after she enters Scorpio! Moon loves in her motherly way, compared to Venus’s romantic love. Children may interfere and lovers neglected. An immediate housing need may require money to be diverted from enjoyable social events or beautiful furnishings. Set aside some special very personal time, have a great gourmet meal together in a few days when the dust has settled.
  • Oct 23  2:57 PM  New Moon, Solar Eclipse in Scorpio at Zero Degrees. That’s about as fresh as it gets! Venus is also at zero degrees. New Moons represent endings/new beginnings, and so does zero degrees. One cycle has culminated, another begun. We are leaving the queries of Libra, curious about both sides, behind. Scorpio has pretty much made up its mind, and is delving into what is behind the scenes, moving the monies around, placing people in positions per their best strengths, healing rifts. As some are being exonerated, others are being forfeited, clearing the Path for more whole ground. It may be uncomfortable personally, plans don’t turn out as expected, but in about three weeks you will have greater clarity and be glad it all happened. You personally, and every step you take are part of the Divine scheme.New Moons are mergers of Male and Female energy. In an Eclipse they are in perfect alignment. Moon is between Sun and Earth, completely infused with Sun energy, acts as a transformation station, softens and transmits to Earth. As one cycle ends, is burned away potently, the new begins most potently, energized to the max! People say New Moons are quiet times, to be in meditation. I say only if you let it! There is much to be done. Time to put away what’s done and give it a respected place in your household of life or revision to reuse, let it go, give it away! Time to water the seeds cast in the fertile soil that was made! No time to dawdle because more life is on the way! Give it a compelling welcome!
  • Oct 25  9:11 AM  Moon eclipses Saturn followed by Mercury turning direct/forward! Moon and Saturn rule opposite signs, soft flowing Cancer and structured strong-as-stone Capricorn! Both feel their responsibilities to home and providing deeply. Cancers love no matter what; Saturn teaches disciplines to save a life, fulfill goals, strengthen your Soul. The order and timing of things may change shape as Mama Moon takes over. What you feel may become more important than what is expected of you. Your polarity may shift and you find your work become more encompassing, richer. Maybe you see that Mother-in-law in new Light, worthy.

At the moment of the Saturn Eclipse, Mercury is still technically retrograde. He turns direct 12:17 PM Pacific. Three to four days before and after a Mercury turn, Mercury is in what is called ‘Station,’ virtually standing still when observed in the sky. Things are on hold, can be scrutinized fully and more deeply. They can be absorbed, measured for standing value. You may be infused, imbued with more power of the sign it is in, if the station degrees aspect factors in your chart. The conduit Mercury most strongly activates is factors at 16, 17, 18. Those factors will be changed, charged, as you receive the energy day after day, while it is slowed down enough to take it in. Concentrate. Focus.

ZERO Degrees Conjunctions! Venus, Moon, and Sun! Venus and Moon are so feminine, and Sun is all male in its radiant golden Light! That Light may be a bit hidden in Scorpio, but once revealed, more intense than could be imagined! Yellow is Scorpio’s sacred color. Scorpio passion is moulten fiery; ice is when you are on their S list.

  • The Moon conjuncts Venus at 2:12 PM, just 45 minutes before the Eclipse at 2:57 PM. Moon is sipping from the Venus in Scorpio well of sacred mystery. Moon sees deeper than many, receives the gift of beauty that is more than everyday business. Venus is loved no matter what obsession in Scorpio possesses her now. She is treated tenderly, nourished, made to feel safer to brave stepping across the line to an even greater love.
  • The Venus, moving faster, conjuncts the Sun essentially on the 24th, exactly at 0:31 AM the 25th, before the Moon eclipse Saturn and Mercury turns Direct. Venus infuses the Sun with a sense of truer, deeper values, gives a blessing, a kindness, appreciation, affection. It’s beauty as well as money, graciousness as well as healing. The Sun feels honored, renews his mortal promise.

LOVE! THE powerful aspect the Eclipse planets, Venus, Moon, Sun, make is the trine to Neptune in Pisces! Scorpio is your mate for life, Pisces is your ‘God,’ Spirit, Soul of life. Each has profound inclinations including being willing to give their lives for their loved ones, or the whole world for that matter.

  • Venus/Neptune is the classic SoulMate combination. In trine, it’s a chance the favor will be bestowed. In this case the signs are favorable and at a New Moon, a new beginning likely. Scorpio cleanses, restores, rebirths, remembers. With Mercury still Rx in Libra, marital relationships, old loves can come back or current relationships repaired, rebalanced. Sometimes it’s just a review as we realize what is, is, and that we need to let go lovingly as we can. Neptune has ultra sensitivity, so we’re not likely to miss the cues. Be gentle and strong. The profound love of music and beauty can take us well beyond a callous world, a healing offering with no words at all.
  • Moon trine Neptune is a love of all souls, so perfect an aspect to precede Halloween, All Souls Day. Moon is the planet of Cancer, the sign of Mediums, those who can cross the divide to engage beings no longer on this life plane. It’s a form of empathy. Cancer/Moon loves genealogy, things of the past that made us so. Neptune is the ruler of Souls, sometimes lost Souls, whether here or there. Compassion is a most potent ability. Being heard, understood, not necessarily agreed with, but just that someone sees our pain, is often incredibly healing. Forgiveness, atonement, can mediate pain, in a moment cross the divide of schism.
  • Sun trine Neptune goes with ‘God,’ calls our personal heart to the Dream, Vision. It puts Light in the Dark Night of the Soul. It takes our hand and walks before us, sometimes scared themselves, but together we pretend it’s gonna be fine, and it is! It feels good to give, and we forget our own sorrows. Sharing, having a mate, immersed, is a generous devotion, a deep, satisfying wholeness. It reminds and encourages us to really BE ourselves. We can live our lives fully, intensely, right up to our time to go.

Full Frosty Moon!!
Thursday Nov 6 at 2:23 PM Pacific – 14 TA 26 

Blessings and Challenges!

The Aquarian planet Uranus connects the two major configurations of our Frosty Moon! Indeed, it is getting cooler outside, and Uranus, planet of Aquarius, is noted for a cool demeanor. Halloween opened the gateway to the darker under worlds of winter, where magic lays in wait. Now on a moonlight night, we can stand in stillness, hearing the sounds of quiet. Take a deep slow breath. Feel it. Change and chance are near. Life may be quiet at times, but it’s alive.

1)  Taurus Moon, Scorpio Sun/Venus, Chiron in Pisces and Uranus in Aries!

Moon opposite Sun with Venus. Oppositions are 100%  aware of each other, especially the Moon and Sun that do it every month, but they are separate too. They need to be. Letting go is a divine principle. Standing alone, recentering, is essential. Moon is so sensitive she needs the distance and not to have to be constantly taking care of everyone, Taurus forever dependable. Let her kick her shoes off. Sun is concerned if he’s doing ok in your eyes. Better to be gone a bit so he can relax and restore, not have to be ‘on,’ a hero every moment. It’s exhausting. Scorpio works when you don’t even see him do it.

Consider the opposite principles here too. Taurus is your personal monies; Scorpio is our shared monies. Both are good, independence and mergers. Taurus is your own body, slithery sensual sex; Scorpio wants to more than just touch you, they want the earth to move! Taurus loves Earth herself, barefooted; Scorpio loves snorkeling, scuba diving, caving, Halloween gravestones! Taurus will do your mask, makeup and hair; Scorpio has invisible charisma no matter how they look!

Two days before, Sun inconjuncted Uranus and trined Chiron!

  • Sun inconjunct Uranus in Aries  They rule opposite signs, Leo and Aquarius, self and friends, community. Inconjuncts adjust. Where we fit in our world, with our self, our mates (Scorpio), needs a tweak. TrueHeart. Unity. Simultaneous discovery continents away. Micro change to macrocosmic shifts of consciousness. How we love our self, honor our mate, is so crucial to planetary growth. Wee moments can trigger the changes of a 1000 years. Bring this to the Full Moon. Initiation. Do it once. Practice. One day your are it and it is you.
  • Sun trine Chiron in Pisces  It would seem powerful fearless Sun in Scorpio would eat Chiron in Pisces for breakfast. Maybe. If they can catch him. Chiron was an immortal who led the crazy centaurs. He was a coyote, a Kokopelli of sorts. He trained medicine men, and in a way was a shapeshifter in giving his powers to others who became like him. Hmm…Pisces, the escape artist, may be the winner, or at least the enchanter of curious healer Scorpio, and Scorpio is hard to impress. Scorpio is tough, but once won, would find Chiron a strong ally, each sharing many things with the other. They would understand each others meaningful nuances with less than a nod of the head. Call for the healing you need.

2)  Venus square Jupiter exact on Nov 9  Taurus planet Venus loves beautiful things, people, homes, clothes. In Scorpio, with Sun, she may want more valuable things, possibly sacred things that surpass the ordinary. There is a need to delve deep for the saint and sinner within, to explore the edge, live a little danger, invest a chance, raise the dead! Jupiter is in Sun’s sign Leo, wants to impress. It’s easy to go over budget and regret it later, or buy something that wasn’t worth it. Be sure of a good return policy, and don’t be proud. Take it back. Not a good time to bet with this square, and the ongoing Jupiter square Saturn hovering.

3)  Allowing a 5 degree range, Mars starts activating the Uranus square Pluto pattern Nov 2. Mars exactly conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn Nov 10, squares Uranus in Aries Nov 12!  No tempting the demons! But it can’t be helped. There is daredevil written all over this one. Mars in Capricorn has more caution than most, but Scorpio’s planet Pluto, never let mere caution stop them. They just have to see it all, enjoy the danger! Uranus in Aries lives for dare! As scientists they are especially successful when they are fanatic. Yet, as career people, Mars in Cap gets to the top over all obstacles. They are super dependable and the job comes in ahead of time. They know where to get best prices, excellent labor perfect for the job. They are perfect advocates, with the facts to back them, for new ventures, updates. They know when to rebel! Mars adds a spark of get-up-on-your-legs out of the office! New ideas to be mixed aren’t half bad, but won’t turn out as expected either. Uranus delights in and is famed for sudden change! All we need is more time, but don’t expect Mars to stick around. He takes the point briefly, makes the point, and off he goes! Prepare to take over at a moment’s notice. Be careful with obsessions, sports, oil and fire, driving, flights.

4)  Prevailing Jupiter close square Saturn in Scorpio through Nov 30. Pluto in Capricorn lives in this combination too because Saturn and Pluto are in each others signs, called a mutual reception! In horary astrology, they can be read in each other’s places. That would mean, Jupiter is square Pluto too! Jupiter square Saturn is like work versus play. Jupiter square Pluto is more like truth and secrets, consequences! Jupiter in Leo is supremely confident. Saviors Saturn and Pluto are both more gritty, face the devils that plague them! They deal with unstable careers, rocky finances, sometimes scary health matters. Jupiter never knew what happened and leads on, trusting all will be well. And why not?! There is a lot of talent behind them! Remember, this is an ‘almost’ aspect. Its matters are in the wind, there for your consideration, but the aspect doesn’t become exact. So make your life better, and keep going.

Wear your cloak, velvet gown, most beautiful undergarments and circle celebrate in the moonlight. Bring offerings of fine Spirits, breads and cheeses, elegant nuts, sweets to delight! Hug, hold hands, give thanks, rejoice!

Scorpio 2014 Full Frosty Moon Astrology Chart


Be prepared for the Nov 22 New Moon the first day of SAGITTARIUS! It will be the second of Five in a row, 2014 Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn, and 2015 Aquarius and Pisces, that are all at ZERO degrees!

 Back to Top

Horses neighboring stalls! Jupiter close Square Saturn.

SEP 25 to NOV 30 Jupiter in Leo is within a 5 degree traveling square with Saturn in Scorpio but it never becomes exact! Jupiter retrogrades (reverses direction) Dec 8 while Saturn goes ahead on into Sagittarius Dec 23. The principles are engaged, but don’t consummate. They visit, chat, bandy ideas, but no final conclusion is made, papers not likely to be signed.

They both want Love and Money, need lots of Love, and lots of Money! Romantic Leo likes to spend big; both Jupiter and Leo love a little gambling. Saturn in Scorpio needs serious long term love, prefers their stockpile, safe and ready if needed for emergencies or worthy investments. They whisper to each other and at times are companionable; they exchange ideas, maybe not the whole truth, but don’t quite link. Even what they disagree on passes by…. They consider each other’s points of view, make known what could be consequences if not properly respected. They dance, warn, hint. They come to know each other without getting too close, and can see what might happen, so they behave a tad better, without a showdown, but are changed nonetheless.

Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn, both have egos to be reckoned with. Jupiter is sure he is right. Leo can make a right drama about it! Saturn, the Rulemaker, may sulk and skulk a bit in Scorpio, and I wouldn’t prod too much from very close. Some things just take time to sort out; some are better left alone entirely. Some things are better learned alone. Solitary practice consolidates true power uncontaminated by outside influence.

These two may do a power dance. Jupiter can dance circles around Saturn, at times inspiring and Saturn is happy to get out. Other times Saturn is made the fool, and in Scorpio, will wait for the potent moment later to make Jupiter pay the price. Saturn may legislate Jupiter to a stand still. Jupiter was getting tired anyway, but never underestimate their recovery power! LOL! They are up before you know it, kicking sand in Saturn’s face, more focused than ever! Jupiter may just want to know if it really works! If these two can work it out, oh my, what they can get done!

Each wants what’s best. Jupiter in Leo is a famed and inspiring teacher! Saturn has the science. Jupiter can make a reticent Saturn happy to stand to the front to let us know the good news of discovery, or even do that for them! Jupiter admires Saturn’s perseverance and hard work. Saturn is grateful for Jupiter’s observations and the Light Leo brings to see the dark corners, valuable untapped bits. Saturn’s work may save time, make it easier for all of us and save what needs saving.

Both planets have long vision. Jupiter sees over the rainbow, far, far away, into the future, trends. Saturn consults the stones and stories of the past, nuggets of history, and builds it better this time!

Jupiter and Saturn are like opposites, Jupiter so hot and optimistic, Saturn noted for cool caution. Yet they rule neighboring signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn. Sag is playful and loves going on vacation; Saturn wouldn’t think of leaving until the job is done, hard workers, super responsible. Sagittarius is inspiration; Saturn funds the venture, makes the dream come true!

Jupiter, the planet of Sagittarius, now in Leo, has the power of the Horse and Lion! Saturn, planet of Capricorn, now in Scorpio, brings the Mountain Goat, a nimble force, powerful survivor, lives economically. Right down to the bones Saturn is a wisdom teacher. Scorpio, the scorpion defender, and upraised Serpents on the Physician’s staff, the Eagle, brings deep piercing thoughtfulness, a desire to cure, to raise from dark to Light. And Scorpio can do it.

We definitely vote for a temporary respectful alliance here!

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio/Libra 2014. Couple Glasses Sunset

Oct 23 Comment! ONLY TWO MORE DAYS OF MERCURY RX! Mercury directs Oct 25 at 12:17 PM. As he goes forward, he covers the same ground for the third time until Nov 10. Mercury is now in Libra, reenters Scorpio Nov 8. This period of time will solidify our changes of thinking, give us a chance to put it in place in our lives, including all the goodies from during Sweet Week! Review the Mercury Rx words, the same matters are still at hand. Relationships will simmer down, financial partnerships will adjust and settle to each person being in their best suited position. Social life will become easier for many; political scuffles will be better done as experience seasons the warriors, both the underdog and the powers that be. Some will discover they have rights; others will make stronger alliances to oppose them as it becomes apparent times are changing. Keep your backside covered. Just because someone smiles at you doesn’t mean they agree with you and won’t oppose you. Stay true to your Center, speak your words in a good way. Keep your balance; be aware of the encompassing energy of all directions, as well as above and below.


2014’s last Mercury Retrograde! Each retrograde this year has straddled water and air signs, Pisces/Aquarius, Cancer/Gemini, now Scorpio/Libra. Air signs are thought to be thinkers, ones who make connections. The nurturing quality of Water signs keeps those ideas and connections alive and thriving!

The start of any Retrograde Cycle is way before the Retrograde dates. This one started Sep 14, when Mercury got to 16 Libra. Mercury is advancing to 2 Scorpio, retrogrades Oct 4 at 10:02 AM Pacific, returns to 16 Libra Oct 24, the date it turns direct/forward. By Nov 10 it retraces its steps to 2 Scorpio. Those degrees 16 Libra to 2 Scorpio are traversed 3 times! Takes the time it takes, and it just gets better and better.

Libra is our relationships, marriage, partnership, the nature of our bonding. It’s a smart sign, perceptive, considering, concerned with the well being of all concerned. Where it occurs in our charts shows in what way our personal emphasis is about relationships. Get your chart free at Astro.com! You need your birthtime for this.

First House: Our relationship with our Self, our personal part
Second: Personal Finances, Values, our Body
Third: How we think/communicate, who we think of
Fourth: With our Parents especially Mother, Children, Country
Fifth: How we create, express ourselves, have romance
Sixth: Service, Health, Pets, how we are organized
Seventh: Marriage, Relationships, Beauty, Partnerships, Culture
Eighth: Finances with others, sharing deep intimacy, healing
Ninth: Ethics, Life Purpose & Planning, Education
Tenth: Career, Father/Boss, Structure of Life, Responsibility
Eleventh: Friends, Change, Freedom, Community
Twelfth: Spiritual, Dreams, Art/Music, Compassion

Scorpios deeply want to share. They donate to research, are intimate to a spiritual degree, set up non-profits, and are keen corporate leaders, put marriage monies together and buy the house! They know that working together multiplies power for the good. Libras have fine social skills, negotiating expertise, bring well matched people together. Equitable contributions from each, Libra and Scorpio, complementary spirits, can dove tail for metamorphic results.

Retrograde relationships! Both Libra and Scorpio are relationship signs. Scorpio especially often has ‘memory’ of past life relationships. Retrograde often returns what was lost, items, people. The future returns from the past. If an old flame returns, first remember why you went different ways. Souls often make progress checks, maybe that’s all the return is about. Take care of as much as you can that was unfinished; give thanks to that person. Sometimes, what wasn’t possible then can work now. Sometimes. A lot of relationships started during retrograde are brief. Often a person who leaves during Rx returns!

Mercury Retrograde typically has mind changes, missed appointments, paperwork and computer snafus, lost items. Verify, confirm everything. When traveling keep valuables with you. Lapses can mean losses. Get good warranties, return policies. If you must go ahead, work with experienced experts to avoid pain and nuisance, like of escrow. If you can, wait to take a new job, move, buy a car, make important choices, financial or personal. That said, let me tell you about ‘Sweet Week!’ If aspects are good, changes are often for the good. You may wish resolution would happen sooner, but wait for it! What comes will be better than you expected.

Libra Mercury Rx during SWEET WEEK Oct 12 to 20! 

During our Retrograde, while Mercury is back in Libra, we have a sweet series of aspects apropos of Libra. Libra generally prefers harmony, but also admires an honorably fair debate with an ‘intelligent’ outcome. Take on some challenges. Lots of options to get through the passage successfully.

Sunday Oct 12th is the day, with several sweet inner planet combinations *part of the chart of the 12th. Some are not part of the chart, also sweet, and becoming exact during the following days! Here’s the layout in PACIFIC times:

Oct 12        X  Moon in Gemini         Have a great chat
XX10:57 AM   Moon sextile Uranus    Best buds, friends forever. Awakening XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX moments.
XXX2:34 PM   Moon trine Venus        Blessed relationship. Abiding beauty.
XXX5:35 PM   Moon sextile Jupiter    Lucky. Ask and ye shall receive. Justice. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Education.

Here is the chart of the exact Moon trine Venus Oct 12th at 2:34 PM in Santa Barbara CA! Yes, the Moon is opposite Mars, a tempery combo with some muttering and possible nagging, hopefully good humored with Mars in Sagittarius, and with Moon in Gemini it can be talked out, doesn’t last long. Mars trine Uranus wants to be friendly, and may be quickly thoughtful and keep Mars cool, even inspiring. Mars and Moon also make the Kite pattern! Mars is the third planet in the Grand Fire Trine (blue lines), and Moon at midpoint links the Jupiter super trine Uranus with two sextiles (the green lines)! Communications specialists! In fact, this chart is just one point short of a Grand Sextile, a Star of David! In addition, the two blue parallel trine lines linked by green lines at each end, form a Mystic Rectangle, another great aspect set!

Have a sweet time!

Libra Beauty Balance Health Deborah Coffey
Sausalito’s Deborah Coffee, Health & Beauty Studio, does a rare and wonderful thing, she customizes her holistic ‘practice of beauty!’

Libra unparalleled beauty of Spirit gets you there. It attracts rich connections, exchanges. Poise, graciousness, putting yourself in the other’s place, gives generosity, enhances and speeds up synchronicity.

Beauty of Body may be as simple as being clean, having a sense of fresh vibrancy. It may be how you carry yourself, a listening awareness, a speaking grace. It could be a gentle helpfulness or a rousing invitation to join and share! Virgo may do perfect puzzles, but Libra puts the pretty on it!

Balance is both horizontal as we think of the scales, and also vertical as all our chakras, energy centers, are humming at equal strength and in peaceful alignment. We don’t fall when we’re tall! What’s good across the table is how tall we stand in our skin. We can admit our wrongs, shortcomings, and goodheartedly listen, learn more, make a difference to the plus side.

Sublime Health is the result of dedicated and passionate care. Blending our exercises so our whole body is engaged gives flow through our entire system, complete accessibility. Athleticism with control – yoga, ballet, ballroom dance, martial arts, maybe Tai Chi. Food balance, not too much of this, too little of that. Sublime health is the payoff of fine tuning, attention to our deviations, and at times to unexpected meanderings, following the threads of magic…person to person. Every Being along our way gifts us with their own unique savvy intelligence. Listen for their intended offering.

Beauty, balance and sublime health start with our first breath. Hold your sweet little one close. Take your baby out into the world. Take moments to make each introduction special. Pay attention to their little person needs. Let them know right away that they are precious to us, they count. Help them stand true to their heart like the fine strong staff between the scales.

With your Sweetheart, learn more about communications. Different teachers have important points of view. Do several! if you lose it, practice until you can do it when times are hot. One teacher says no contempt, criticism, defensiveness or stonewalling, and recommends 5 praise to 1 criticism (if one escapes you)! If you grew up in a family like mine, you didn’t get that example, and it’s hard work to shift your outlook. But it’s doable alchemy and true romance!

Libras are often natural negotiators who can help you. My parents were both Libras, the battling kind, and, oh, they battled well, but unkindly. What we are looking for are Libras who calmly state their case, negotiate, take time outs to think things over, do their research, come back promptly, and, if there is time, agree to wait if there is an impasse. They can be very fair lawyers. Let them represent you when you are too emotional or don’t have the courage or skill to stand for yourself. Watch and learn.

Take a look in the mirror. Watch people’s faces when you meet ~ how are they reacting to how they see you. Let people know what you enjoy about them. Be their mirror and keep it really clean!



Happy Fall Equinox/Mabon and Halloween!

NEW MOON!
Tuesday Sep 23 at 11:14 PM Pacific ~ 1 LI 08

See  FULL Hunter’s Moon, Lunar Eclipse

The day after Libra starts, the day after Fall Equinox, the Libra New Moon is on the very day of the second to last aspect of the culminating August/September Jupiter set! It’s the day of Jupiter inconjunct Chiron, running concurrent with, followed two days later by, the Jupiter super trine Uranus Sep 25! See all about that!

This New Moon holds a profound position in the new balance we are seeking. We are hopeful for robust harmony, a kind justice, a fairness for our world community, remembering we are part of an even greater sphere. Yet Libra’s words are War & Peace. May we fight well and honorably. We are models. What we do locally, with each other in our relationships, has more influence than we may realize. Think wider. Stand taller that you may see further, actually touch feet to ground in higher levels.

Inconjuncts lead us slightly off center, disturb the scales. This New Moon is IN the Jupiter inconjunct Chiron! It is in a diversion toward healing, an adjustment of teaching technique, a realigning of points of view with a greater truth forging the way. The wounds may be extreme or exaggerated, more apparent, suffered more profusely. It is clear there are neglected needs, understanding is a prime generator for change. Lots and lots of heart may open gateways to a deeper Spirit untouched before. Go with generosity but gently too.

This New Moon is IN the Jupiter super trine Uranus! This is important because Uranus has been in the very difficult square to Pluto since 2010, and this trine is a magnificently favorable aspect opening an outlet, giving some of the challenge a more fun choice! It is offering opportunities out of the dark! There have been profound changes worldwide politically, financially, and with climate change, and natural disasters one right after another. This trine won’t make it all go away, but it does offer worldwide connections, from simple friendship, travel, to unity of organizations that make key change! It opens possibilities from the smallest links in the chain to sweeping international education. Jupiter is in Leo, the sign of the individual, the Light of the self realized Being. Uranus is the planet of the sign Aquarius, awakened people united in freedom, super intelligence. Though of opposite signs, here they work together well.

In old fashioned every day terms, it is a fame and fortune event!!! Plan gatherings, open your doors. Invite the most fantastic people you can think of!

Libra, is profoundly interested in cultural integration, respect for all, has faith in ambassadors. Leo is the relationship we have with our selves; Libra is the relationships between partners of all kinds; Aquarius is the relationships between people in groups and between groups. This New Moon is key to expediting crucial partnerships so more can happen in a good way. What we say to each other, how considerate we are, listening, are what keep us connecting in ways that keep potential alive. One screw up and a thread is broken or lost. The whole is not quite as vibrant. The shape is skewed. Stopping to have to fix it, if it is fixable, delays every thing, every one. Do your best. Make amends when you can. Keep connected in a good way.

As the New Moon ends a cycle, complete the work you have been doing. As the New Moon begins the next cycle, care well for the seeds of the new connections you are making.

FULL Hunter’s MOON, Lunar ECLIPSE!
Wednesday Oct 8 at 3:51 AM Pacific ~ 15 Aries 05 

Fully visible from Western North America, Alaska and Hawaii
Observers in Eastern North America will only be able to see part of the eclipse before the Moon sets below the horizon.

Our Eclipse links two powerful planetary patterns, during Mercury Retrograde, Jupiter ‘square’ Saturn!!

1)  Moon & Uranus, Venus & Sun, make a FIVE planet T Square, the big red triangle, with Pluto at the point!

It activates the Uranus square Pluto that has challenged the World! Mother Moon, of chaos and lunacy is with Uranus of strange and never-to-be-the-same-again! These in Aries can’t wait to make new beginnings as the Full Moon spreads its wings across the night. In challenge with Pluto, dark is quite dark and the stranger becomes the transformer, possible danger or intrigue afoot. Be ready to let some friends go, let others in. Instant direction changes go with the territory.

Across the wheel, opposite Moon & Uranus, are Venus and Sun together at 10 and 15 degrees Libra. Venus in Libra is super attractive in her second sign (first is Taurus). In the square with Pluto, be careful with your money and favors. Be careful what you ask for. The Sun already squared with Pluto Oct 3rd/4th, and remembers the trick that was in the treat. Though Pluto may have appeared to win, no one ever fully gets away from the scrutiny of the Sun’s profound Light. There are limits to what can be hidden. And sometimes it’s the Light that helps us see the way that saves us. Stand your ground, but it’s not a night to go alone.

2)  Quite differently, the Eclipse axis also completes a Kite pattern! That’s a Grand Trine (blue triangle) with two linked sextiles along one trine (the two linked greens), all classically favorable combinations!

Moon and Uranus make trines to Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo! Trines indicate harmony, flow of action though sometimes they are too easy and lazy, or it’s like a greased wheel out of control, too fast to think! Woops! And this is a Fire Trine! No sleeping dogs here! Aries is a primal motivator. The Moon here is not her usual Suzy Homemaker self! :) Oh no, she isn’t! She’s ready to roll and you better keep up! Jupiter in Leo carries the torch, both to see the way and find romance at any moment! Lucky too, certain they will win against the odds, and likely will! Mars in Sagittarius feels lucky too, and is ready to run the marathon! Too bad trines usually bring in the favorites. Moon and Uranus are in Mar’s sign Aries, so there is a rapport. These are fast responders and quick to take the reins of exploration, new events! Big blue skies and lots of view.

Venus and Sun make sextiles to Mars and Uranus! The Sun is in close midpoint to them, equidistant, 15, 16, 17 degrees!  That’s a fast, brilliantly intelligent combination, super at communicating and making instantaneous connections!

Venus, Sun and Mars are going to be fun to watch. Venus and Sun in Libra are more gentile, the engraved invitation sort, polished, polite. Mars in Sagittarius can be uncouth, clown it up and make you laugh! So casual, eye on the horizon. Not a whit concerned with pleasing anyone. But they do know a phony when they see one and can be blatant truth tellers willing to fight for what’s right. They are genuine in their socks, you know where you stand with them. You see what you get, no game playing, no guessing required. In spite of those annoying differences, this threesome can be super attracted. Libra gets over being too nice; it’s more fun than they’ve had in a long time doing some wild things they’ve secretly always wanted to do! And Mars gets some manners. Surprising what a little finesse will getcha. Cowboy poetry is way cool.

Venus, Sun and Jupiter are so romantic! Venus wants her flowers, Sun wouldn’t mind being waited on. Jupiter in Leo will take you on a little getaway, with lovely views, pretty grounds as far as the eye can see. Impressive. Tempting to pop the question, but don’t do it! Moon/Uranus in Aries is an unstable combination that wants independence and freedom, changes in a wink of the eye! Great for research discoveries! Yet, it could be an unquenchable love at fist sight, elopement, a forever marriage! In business ask for what you want, a LOT of what you want. Good chance you will get it. It’s a generous potential. However, do remember that Venus square Pluto. There will be some kind of a price. Make sure the payback rate is doable if it is a loan, or the return favor is ethical. No selling your Soul. Wait and find another way.

Mars and Jupiter start their 5 degree combo Sep 29, will be exactly trine 1:43 PM Pacific the afternoon of this Oct 8 Eclipse! They can travel far with each other, especially since Mars is in Jupiter’s sign! Jupiter in Leo makes sure the accommodations are first class, but get on with it! Mars is quivering in its boots wanting to see what’s next! Teaching is more like leading, but hey, wait, isn’t that just about the same anyway?! New ways, a new touch, new news, a new big horse, new exercise, new things to learn! Spice! A little folk music, country, foreign flavors! Perfect for touring, promoting, publishing, book signings events! It’s a grand saga, a tale worthy to report! Combine social and sports!

3) The Eclipse is during Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio. I could say, take things with a grain of salt because what’s said will be revised, mind changed. Transformed is another way of saying it. But Scorpio just doesn’t go lightly. They want to know what makes things tick, why you said that, who said what, what it means to you, and your intentions. If there is unfinished business, and very likely there is, don’t expect to simply walk away without question. In fact, though it may take some time and effort, things could get exponentially better if you stay present. Scorpio is a fixed sign, tries to be stable, yet believes in profound healing (change). Retrograde can come back again and again until the repairs are all in place and the job wholly accomplished. To your health and wealth!

4) Jupiter square Saturn is a close traveling square, but never becomes exact because Jupiter retrogrades! The principles are engaged, but don’t consummate. They visit, chat, bandy ideas, but no final conclusion is made, papers not likely to be signed.

This is a complex and rich Eclipse! Enjoy every bit of it! Do something sweet with good friends; dance with your Lover!
