Scorpio – Fires Within

Wednesday Oct 26 | 12.56 PM Pacific | Super New Moon | 3 Degrees Scorpio   This is the 5th of 2011’s 6 Super Moons.  Super Moons are when the Moon is 90% or greater of its closest approach to Earth.  When it is a full moon, it appears as much as 15% bigger!  They indicate more intensity, higher tides, strong storms if there is one, higher seismic activity.  This is a NEW MOON, and Scorpio is noted for intensity of the deep dark water variety!  Records could be set, relationships could start or crumble, there could be revelations about money sources, resurrection of old alliances, brushes with death, healing through saturation/immersion, miracles!  Time alone may be deeply needed and appreciated, a transfixion of quietness.  This is happening midday, so you may need to get away, take a bit later lunch, to meditate or have a private meeting.  Being a new moon, perhaps it is small beginnings, let things grow in their natural way.  The temptation is to use force, but avoid pushing at it, causing a distortionate break or growth ahead of its time.  Being only two days before the Jupiter trine Pluto puts it in that aspect’s hot zone!  There may be an ebb then a leap!  Read on….

Thursday Oct 27:  Occultations are Eclipses too, not just Moon/Sun Combos! They occur when planets are lined up both horizontally and vertically, exactly in the line of sight! Some years they happen again and again, often to the same planet. 2011 there are only 3, all formed by the Moon to different planets – 6.30 Venus, 7.27 Mars, 10.27 Mercury.  Oct 27’s Moon occultation Mercury is our last of the year.  Moon is emotional, Mercury is logical, and they are making a merger!  Feel what you think, say what you feel, but be really careful because this one is in Scorpio.  You can’t take back what you have said, and it may cut deep.  If a conversation even hints at turning South, let it go, NOW.  There may be an unanticipated price down the road, even revenge.  And it takes a lot of effort to repair, sometimes can’t be repaired.  The other side is someone may tell you something more valuable than you even realize at the time.  You may be healed or given a key piece of information that transforms you, your situation, relationship.  And it may be a blessing in disguise.  There could be an ending that serves you well in the long-term, and actually has been overdue.  Be able to engage, listen big, disengage if needed.  It’s a life skill worth having.  This is especially true this occultation because first Mercury is activated by its direct alignment with the Moon at 22 Scorpio at 7:08 PM, then the Moon passes over Venus at 23 Scorpio at 9:23 PM, just a little over 2 hours later!

First the New Moon quiets us, making us thoughtful in behind-the-scenes observant Scorpio, on the 26th.  Then the Moon, Mercury, Venus combination makes us extra aware of home and family, about love, the 27th.  It opens our capacity to attune, speak our love and affection, to kindly and potently tell what we want, both personally and in business, to see more clearly how we can make the money to support ourselves, loved ones, do things we naturally love.  These are the catalysts and a poignant part of the forming Jupiter trine Pluto, exact the very next day, the 28th, at 9:46 AM Pacific!

Friday Oct 28 Second Jupiter trine Pluto at 5 degrees Taurus and Capricorn.  This and the Jupiter sextile Chiron (the next one will be Dec 6) have been the aspects that have kept the Stock Market up this year.  Jupiter is expansionary, lucky, wise, foresees the directions things will take, is optimistic, will take long odds and win!  It has an extraordinary ability with perspective, watches the big picture, is playful.  Can’t keep a good Sag/Jupiterian down!   Pluto is the planet of wealth and Chiron of business!  Pluto cleans up messes, is expert at rebuilding after losses, recovery from illness, never says die!  When in top order, it is a clean machine!  Deep and internal cleansing, firing people who are not able to make the returns needed, are its forte.  Though at times painful for the recipient, in the long-term, the move is usually the best and reform and transformation happen.  Jupiter wants space; Pluto wants mergers and deep intimacy.  So, if a merger happens, it is probably a better deal than usual.  There has to be a real attraction for Jupiter to see a future in it and accept the transaction.  It will likely be a long-term value.  See more at last month’s pre Jupiter trine Pluto post.

Jupiter is fame, fiery, education, and speed sports; Pluto is death and healing, charisma, power.  The first trine was July 7 – on  July 8 we lost Betty Ford, died at the age of 93. She was known primarily for her work post-whitehouse and for founding one of the most famous rehabilitation facilities (The Betty Ford clinic) in the world. Widow of former president Gerald Ford.  Coming into this second trine, we have lost two.  1) Steve Jobs Oct 5 (4 degree trine): Chairman and Co-Founder of Apple, died due to  complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56. Jobs was known for his keynote speeches that were given each year to update the loyal Apple followers, as well as his enlightening interview style.  2) Oct 16 (2 degree trine): IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon died after suffering severe injuries in a spectacular 15-car wreck at the Las Vegas Indy 300. He was 33 years old. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner (including this year’s event) was critically hurt when his car sailed over the top of another during a massive, fiery wreck on Lap 11.  Ironically he had been driving test cars to avoid exactly that.

All of these people made powerful contributions, each in their own way.  May they rest in Peace.  And may we LIVE this aspect well, and carry on its teachings with Grace.

Scorpio, Master of Resurrection

Scorpio is the only sign of the zodiac that starts in a double number month, November, 11.  Double numbers double the power, called Master Numbers!  Scorpios have always been feared and revered!  As Libra is the sign of mirrors, Self reflected through others, looking across the table, Scorpio is the sign of merging, ultra sensitivity to others, doubling power when a merger is accepted, accumulating power with each merger, corporate like.  Being a ‘permeable’ water sign, is why they walk around with the stinger ready, a demeanor of don’t mess with me – to keep away the ones that don’t suit at that time.  Or, they don the mysterious unfathomable poker faced mask – you don’t know me, I’m not available, yet, if ever.

The mask, sometimes freely worn as the perfect image of inscrutability, implies a need to protect, a vulnerability that is perhaps not discernible to others.  So there is a certain unpredictable ferocity, a tempestuous wildness in the cauldron, that you need to be careful of until you get to know them better.  And which one of you are we speaking with?  The mask we see or the one behind the mask?!  Both?  Do you know yourself?!  And we all know that, there is more to us than as first or often appears.  One of us is the ‘face,’ the other fermenting.  We all have Scorpio somewhere in our chart,  an 8th  house (Scorpio’s natural part of our chart), and Pluto (Scorpio’s planet) somewhere in our chart.  We all have a minimum of 3 places where we experience Scorpio’s Shadow and Revelation, one way or another.  Since the Mask implies the one you see and the one you don’t know but is there, perhaps this is part of the Great Mystery of their super healing, both having and bestowing.  The mask calls forth what is needed, attracting the Force, while the inner person gathers strength from within, perhaps even resting, while the Mask is lining things up externally.  They have two chances at life, healing from two directions!  Scorpio has always been known to heal faster than other people, miraculously so even when there has been extreme wounding.  And they heal not only the obvious, but the source of the trouble.  Complete healing, through and through, body and Spirit.

Because a partner, an equal, has been attracted, and legalized in Libra, now there is also a very real other, Self, that is there to help when needed.  No doubt they are finely attuned, because Scorpio is highly sensitive, and must pick a partner with higher compatibility for comfortability.  Their reputation is to mate for life.  You can see why.  Only in extreme circumstances do they give up their relationship, and when it’s up, it’s up.  Period.  This deep bond must be boon and bane.  It’s blessed when it is well, and tortured when it isn’t, because it is that close no matter what’s up.  Sigh.  Scorpio is the sign that most often marries one of its own same sign.  So there is less work explaining, there is natural concert, extraordinary potency.  It’s as if another person, or is that two persons, is helping with healing, comforting, encouraging exactly as needed, as if it is another yourself you must live for!  What is that Mayan phrase?   “In Lak’ech” – I am Another Yourself   I’ve thought of that as a Gemini phrase also, Gemini the sign of two.  I think of Gemini and Scorpio as different stages of butterflies.  Geminis flit here and there with nary a care, or so it seems, and Scorpio is the silent invisible Creature in the Chrysalis, deep in dark, soon to bloom.

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.
