Virgo Shamanic Healer Traditional Smoking Ceremony Saturn Square Chiron

An Aboriginal man performs a traditional “smoking” ceremony as the Asian Cup trophy is carried to the Sydney Opera House for the official draw.  

Late September, this Saturn square was showing up, already in effect at the Sep 19 New Moon. The Nov 2 exact aspect is the day before the Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Full Moon Nov 3. It’s like Saturn hammers the forces into place, if he can get them in his grip. Then the Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, to reveal the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!

Saturn square Chiron has run concurrently with the Jupiter set of four that started late October 2016. It is now the next to the last aspect of the entire set. The very last one is Saturn trine Uranus 11.11.17!

Saturn square Chiron blocks or breaks away. Saturn nails them shut for later consideration, or splits them apart to be reassembled with better materials for a finer fit. Small firewood burns faster. Smaller healing steps can be wise, more easily dealt with in difficult situations. Start where you can, adjust as you go.

The Magi astrologers consider this a sad aspect of loss in relationships, wounding, depression. Sometimes neither party is willing, or able, to make changes, rebuild. Too tired, weak, overburdened, survival priorities may take precedence. I have a realistic regard for this one and won’t recommend marriages at this time unless you have way above average compatibility, both of you have super progressions and otherwise fabulous transits, and your astrologer arranges the very best possible date and time for you. But good compatibility can be brought down by a wedding chart fraught with long term difficult aspects. Why pick aspects like this when you can wait and do so much better? Though the aspect is activating 24 Sag/Pisces 47, and that may not activate any factor in your charts, it still would be part of the wedding chartIt will have problems, and that chart is the one for the purpose of your union. If Karma comes calling, and you must do it, then study up on these aspects well. In some ways the tables can be turned; in others, you will do the dance as spelled out.

For some people, the square will actually activate their charts well. The aspect itself will present challenge, but you will deal with it comfortably. If it doesn’t aspect your chart at all, it’s just a go by, hardly noticed.

If it is in difficult conditions with your chart…. If Chiron is a/the wound, and Saturn slows down healing, it just isn’t fun. It can be your love life, your body, your work or business, school, attitude. For centuries we’ve largely ignored the wisdom of those among us who are still directly connected to ancestral ways of knowledge. If you haven’t paid serious attention before and some real work needs to be done, you may make a breakthrough and make a start in the right direction. Find a real teacher/healer, maybe an indigenous shamanic healer. You may get over the fear of making a commitment or taking on something bigger than usual. You might be called on to do it on your own as others may have troubles of their own. Give them any help you can. You may be frustrated with limits, but perhaps they are keeping you safe for the time being. Time may feel like it is standing still. It teaches poise and patience. Just stay steady, stay with it. Make what you’ve got the best it can be.

That said, here are some ideas how to use this square to full advantage. Buckle up. Saturn knows how to prioritize, condense its energy, waste no time, has super focus, puts the right people in the right places to get the job done! Yes! Just like a Surveyor, in Sagittarius, they can locate to the right place within a hairsbreadth, build with confidence! They have the wisdom to pick projects that make sense over time, adding up over the years, future benefits multiplied! Hard work pays off.

Chiron was immortal and suffered a wound that wouldn’t heal. Through that experience he became an adept healer and teacher. In Pisces, there is a wordless compassion, often giving lifelong service to causes to benefit humanity. Chiron is also considered to be an astute business planet. Health spas, hospitals, senior facilities, schools and all their associated functions. Working in these ways, as healers and teachers, express this energy well. Building facilities and housing, working in human resources, providing services to your community, are some of the ways Saturn and Chiron can combine their skills and intentions, work together for the greater good.

At the personal level, Saturn may need to learn when to get down on his knees, take a break, leave the work at the office. In Sagittarius the wild card is wanting to run away, procrastinate some. Maybe that’s good, maybe not. But take a look at it. Take care of things that make you want to run away. Either it’s part of life and you need to man up, or it’s time for a change. If you need it, get some support. If you need support in your relationship, get it sooner than later. Save time down the road and don’t let things get beyond fixing. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that as a springboard to mentoring and teaching. Chiron in Pisces may be challenged by the ‘wounds’ of confusion or addictions, fear and escape. Do your best to keep stress lower, avoid trigger situations, be with knowing and supportive people, go to extra meetings if you need to. Have your responses ready to anticipated difficult questions. Leave stressful situations if you need to. Eat well, get a little exercise, and plenty of rest. Healer heal thyself. It’s ok to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are at. Blessed be.

This aspect is particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. The Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus has been traveling concurrently with Saturn square Chiron. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!   

If you are well and safe, do some special volunteer work. Get on the road and give some tenderness to others in need. Share your expertise. Serve dinners, scope out the soup line for a mentoree! See how your company can serve the community with its profits. Make those tax deductible donations! What goes around comes around. Plant your seeds well.

Shortly after our Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, Nov 11 the entire 2016-17 set finishes with Saturn trine Uranus! This aspect starts a series of only positive aspects through Nov 1, 2018!!!! That’s a go ahead!

Full Taurus/Scorpio Frosty Moon!
Saturn square Chiron, trine Uranus background!

Friday Nov 3 at 10:23 PM Pacific, 11 Taurus/Scorpio 59!

Scorpio Full Frosty Moon Taurus-Scorpio

It may be frosty, but Scorpios can comfortably accommodate radical temperature changes!

Saturn square Chiron leads up to the Full Moon, exact Nov 2 the day before the Full Moon! For some that will not be a cheerful aspect, perhaps losses and lonely. Depending on how it activates your chart, it will present challenges, but easily dealt with. Others won’t notice it at all. But old Saturn hammers the forces into place anyway, if he can get them in his grip. The Full Moon spreads the pages apart, Moon opposite Sun, reveals the valuable inner nut, opens the Gateway!  See more

Also yet to come is the companion aspect Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11, 11-11! Saturn square Chiron in Pisces comes first, a possible health challenge, a matter of addictions, old guilt, fears, depression. Depending on how it engages your chart, if it does, you may find yourself on your knees. This is followed by the trine with Uranus, support of friends and community, and the freedom to change. It requires hard work to make the change, but the effort pays off. There may not be fireworks, but a worthy mission will be completed. No shame or blame. This is a life changing passage.

These two aspects are particularly significant after all the recent natural disasters – fires, floods, quakes. Saturn square Chiron has forced us to let go of old wounds, released us from old sacrifices and negligence, acting alone. New communities are being formed, timely new businesses with real bones are being born. Hard times have shown us what really matters, how to help and be helped. We are connecting with one another, really connecting, heart to heart. It is a perfect time to build with sustainability in mind, upgrading to new and better possibilities for sweeter reasons. It’s a time of re-creation. Saturn the Builder, Father Time, is in harmony, trine, with genius Uranus, the planet of chaos, change, community, R/Evolution. Saturn, a historical genius, now in Sagittarius becomes a practical Futurist with the background to make it so!

Venus at 25 Libra, just invited Saturn to an awards gathering, and she is opposing Uranus in Aries asking him to mind his manners, stop by for just a few minutes. She knows how restless and caged he can feel. She’s sweet in her own sign, and he’s taken with her grace and that she made the effort to include him though at times he can be bristly. She was intrigued by him and would like to see him again, but she’s likely right, it’s only a brief encounter. He and Saturn or into some timely necessary work. They are cleaning up messes and forging a better future. Maybe later on…or maybe they engage her to soothe the constituents, balance the forces, add her touch of beauty.

In the last 3 to 4 days, Mercury in Scorpio has just mingled with the whole group, pivotal! He is leaving midpoint Venus and Saturn, aided their connection by knowing secrets of each. He trined Chiron, hoping to bestow healing tips, cleaver teaching that leaves them wanting more! Having been inconjunct, askew Uranus, he disguised his ideas to make Uranus in Aries thought they were his own. Worthy ambushes. Uranus retains his leadership and happiness. Mercury is the mental power battery, quick to see the crevices in the minds of his fellows. He snatches the inklings, spreads the Word, plies his craft well!

Moon is quickly leaving Mars, Sun is faster and leaving Mars. Mars is leaving semisextile Jupiter. What’s done has been done. Things are moving on without him. Sun is leaving Jupiter too.

Those of you with factors in your charts close to 11 degrees will be directly linked to the Full Moon and Neptune. The Moon in Taurus, and Sun in Scorpio favorably connect with Neptune of Dreams. Taurus is a steady worker, determined every single day. It may seem small gains at first, but the next thing you know the whole field is plowed. Or the landscaping has grown and looks beautiful. Ironically, ashes of fires are like a fertilizer. Neptune is a Guide, and Angel, a sweet Soul that takes your hand when you get scared and stubborn. Neptune makes music that can call you, haunt you, make you dance like Kokopelli or Zorba the Greek! Neptune knows when to be gentle or give you the boot in the backside, knowing you will be ok. Nothing like being in fresh space on new ground!

Sun in Scorpio lights the way through the darkest times, even at night when the Sun isn’t shining, through the caves of unlighted consciousness, inner space, our tubular psychology! We step out of denial, fascinated by the possibilities after all! Scorpio celebrates the darker times of life, Halloween, honoring at the Day of the Dead, our rip roaring stupendously impressive ancestors who survived in dangerous times! We have a residual power through the Matriarchy and Patriarchy, past lives. Sensitive and psychic Neptune reveals hidden strengths. Spiritual mentors may become apparent, loosening our perception to understand more of our gifts. A good Sensei teaches you your unique prowess, healing talents, tunes your wholeness, connects you with your true center, honors the connections with all.

Sun will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet Nov 9 in the wee hours of the morning Pacific time, so essentially Nov 8 is it’s most active day. That’s two/three days before Saturn trine Uranus Nov 11! So the Sun of this Full Moon also links the two Saturn aspects that are the background of this Full Moon. Outer planet aspects are important because they are more long term. Their matters take time to develop, be instilled, be consciously used. Pluto, as is Scorpio, is a force to be reckoned with. The Sun in Scorpio knows how to deal with Pluto. Pluto may be a bit old fashioned in Capricorn, but there are new potentials to be reaped. There are good and powerful connections to be made. The Sun is the Heart of Light and shows the way.

“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” – Bill Gates, Oct. 28 – Scorpio Sun, Venus, Saturn; Jupiter conjunct Pluto

New Moon!  Opposite Star Algol, leaving trine Procyon!!
Four Planets, Stellium in Scorpio!
Saturn at Galactic Center, leaving square Chiron, trine Uranus!
Jupiter trine Neptune….

Saturday November 18, at 3:42 AM Pacific, 26 Scorpio 19!

New Moon Crescent Goddess Eos Dawn Mask Cyndy Salisbury

In honor of Halloween, Cyndy Salisbury’s mask of Eos, dawn, emerges out of the dark of Night. Resurrection, Rebirth, Reawakening, Rejuvenation. About Cyndy and mask making

Our Scorpio New Moon is truly Celestial! It connects with two Stars and the Galactic Center!

The Galactic Center, GC, is a place of huge significance. It ties us with Souls or Beings beyond our wildest imaginings! We may dream or have insights, but more likely impressions that we don’t entirely understand yet feel are important, compelled by, point a direction. We are inclined to be more inclusive, to let go of the daily fraught, raise our sights higher. We see what surrounds us with greater comprehension.

Saturn is now at the GC at 26 Sagittarius, as it was 28, 29 years ago! Saturn will be at, conjunct the 26th degree Nov 15 to 24. Saturn in Sagittarius calls us to take charge of our future. Work it. Be present, accept the mission. Be respectful of all Paths. It started Feb 16 at 26 Sag 0, moved into 27 degrees and ‘stationed’ there – was direct/moving forward, then April 5 retrograded/turned back. It went back to 26/0 degrees May 25, right after the the second Saturn trine Uranus! That was three months that we were deeply infused. Now we see what needs doing, it’s time. Recent floods, fires and quakes have called for survival, generosity and recovery. I won’t say restoration, because it’s time to do better. We want to build a fresh future. Let go, move forward clean and clear.

We are now living the legacy of the Nov 2 Saturn square Chiron, the challenges of stabilizing in the aftermath of fires, floods and quakes. Even without drastic events, it may disrupt your business or your love life. It may remind us of old sorrows, addictions, grief for lost loved ones. Our health could suffer. The change we hope for may seem lost or circumstances insurmountable. Chiron is in Pisces can have a wicked imagination! Thank goodness Saturn is realistic and practical. In Sagittarius he is so looking out for a more positive future and actively working for it! Day by day, step by step. Do what you can, you get points for just being able to wait this one out! More better though, if you take measures, no matter how small. You can do it!

We are also in the building for change Nov 11 Saturn trine Uranus. We will strive for greater sustainability, community efficiency, more meaningful life work, working together. Saturn collects the scatterings of ideas of Uranus in Aries, unites them in purpose! Responsible networks are formed, some with unique specialties. These networks may be bulwarks to stay tides of falling back in time, yet see values in new ideas and put them to work.

Correspondingly, the New Moon is at the same degree as Saturn, a sign apart! In turn, then, the New Moon was just trine Chiron and inconjunct Uranus! Semisextile Saturn gives it a serious sense of the need to get things done, maneuver behind the scenes to back Saturn’s play. The trine to Chiron in Pisces increases knowing the sensitivity and delicacy some things will require. Many are suffering losses of everything they had and loved ones as well. Others are exultantly freed of what was a suffocating daily bondage. Some are suicidal, others are able to step up to the plate. It’s a fine choice whether to be gentle for a long time, or to heartfully bully them to stand up, lift their chin and get on with it. Martyr time is over.

Inconjunct with Uranus means this is a time to start incorporating change into your life. Uranus is the planet of evolution, mightier than any sword or pen! The part of you that is unique is called to contribute. It’s exhilarating when you step into this new level, zone! For a long time you were learning skills that now will be used to their fullest capacity in collaboration with likeminded Souls for the greater good of all! Uranus in Aries can be solo, or the work can be done by a tribe of leaders, community leaders worldwide making amazing strides! Deliberately join forces! Make connection after connection to strengthen the light grid of Humanity!

This New Moon has super Scorpio flavor with FOUR planets, a stellium in Scorpio the 16th – 18th! The New Moon is a potent time all of its own, with Moon joining Sun, being infused with intense Scorpio energy, energized by the special healing Light of Scorpio. Mother Moon is intuitive in her own right and more so in Scorpio. She let’s no pain or sorrow not be comforted by her understanding. You can tell her your secrets and as any good midwife, she guards what you share.

Jupiter gives a huge boost to Scorpio energy! He amplifies relationships, shares through hardships, celebrates and multiplies financial successes in rapid progression. Healing happens faster than ever before, and Scorpios have amazing healing powers, both of self and in behalf of others! Clearing psychological messes, plumbing matters both internal and in housing, financial accounting is tracked and justified, security for breakins and thefts is seriously installed. Wills are made, elder needs are anticipated and dealt with in generous ways. Just be careful on that motorcycle!

Jupiter’s next stop is trine Neptune in his own sign Pisces Dec 2! That will be the first aspect that starts the 2018 set! From Scorpio of the Underworld, to Neptune the ultimate dreamer, gifted visionary, Jupiter will see underlying causes, apply the greatest healing possible. Jupiter in Scorpio can be a phenomenal fundraiser for causes, concerts, spas, foundations for learning, sponsoring research. Beliefs may be in exceptional harmony.

Venus in Scorpio is either spoiled truly rotten, learning skills neglected as bills are paid for you, or, you are blessed with beauty beyond measure, inborn charisma that brings champion contenders to you, a keen awareness of the intent of others, and an astute judgment of how worthy and long lasting an investment may be. She will sextile Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, very early the 21st. Have your ideas in mind and make your request the 20th. Good time to ask for that raise, promotion depending on factors in your personal chart.

OTHER FACTORS  Mercury has just left sextile with Mars. Mars in Libra made some quick no-nonsense introductions, gave options for action on both sides. His leadership is to the point, fights a good fight. Mercury carries the Word, lets the people know about the project, the cause. In Sagittarius, Mercury wants to teach, inspire, go places, look much further ahead, make the plans! Mars will make the exact square to Pluto the wee hours of Sunday the 19th, so New Moon day, or the day before, will see the most challenge. Mars is forthright, wants to cross the gap, make a bridge. Pluto in Capricorn is the old Guard, generally quite cautious, knows how to sidestep upstarts. So prove why what you want is valuable, be persistent, be concise. This may be a time to propose, but have to wait and see.

TWO FIXED STARS!

The New Moon is opposite Mischief-maker Algol at 26 Taurus. It holds a distinction of being an eclipsing binary. Every 68 hours and 49 minutes this Demon Star ‘blinks’ for roughly 8 hours as the dimmer star of the pair passes between the brighter and the earth. We have a ‘duality’ of light and seeming blindness, or a timeout to contemplate. And it is an illusion. We just can’t see the dimmer star though it is there.

Bernadette Brady says: “This star seems to contain immense female passion and power. Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage. If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and from that passion return a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky. Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful, of if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.” Scorpio is considered to have great passion and power, sometimes plagued by issues of revenge. Either this Star will highlight that, exacerbate it, or draw it off through another on the other side who is steady in the Light.

Diana Rosenberg says Algol in a chart doesn’t necessarily mean that one will inflict or be the victim of horror and mayhem: “you will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime. Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity.” See much more

Procyon, almost 26 Cancer, is also binary, but not eclipsing! It is the smaller of Orion’s hunting dogs. It has a quite different interpretation than the dread Algol. Procyon in trine, a favorable aspect, with our New Moon, likely its more positive factors will be activated. Will-power and ability to put thoughts and plans into action, wealth and renown. With the Sun, a valiant demeanor is indicated! However, it also has a tendency to a hot temper and impudence, and dog bites! Take it easy and don’t torment the dog! LOL

BOWL! All the planets in our New Moon Astrology Chart are in just over half the wheel! That is not so common. A Bowl pattern collects energy in the many ways its planets are in their signs, the circuits they make or don’t among themselves. The energy is contemplated, examined, sorted, healed, enhanced, energized, redistributed. It may be partially or all held for use by the recipient, or perhaps for safekeeping. When the time is right, all or part of it may be poured forth back into the Universe to hold a specific place in the Light Grid. It may be sent to be a receiver/transmitter. It may be called to in turn heal a weak spot in the valence. You can use this kind of energy sustenance, a repair, upgrade replacement, or a system connection of your own. In a clean array, it can attract more amazing energy to mingle with and upgrade to further levels of understanding. No limits!

Depending on where on earth this New Moon chart occurs, the ‘bowl’ may be over the top of the chart acting as a hood! Rather than collecting from above, it gathers rising energy forms from below or ones floating about with no particular strength. Some are keepers, some are transformed and put to a greater use, others yet are dropped to shift and circulate further until they return and are ready to fit the scenario of the ‘bowl’ or they just move on where they do fit. The keepers, the ones the bowl processes, then may be like a living shower of energy collected, potently merged, united in cause, dispersed into the mainstream to magnetize others.

Animal Medicine! Scorpions and snakes that shed their skins, reptiles in general, 8 legged Spiders, Crows, Owls, Bats, Eagle, and Phoenix! From Halloween creatures to mythological, ground dwellers to flyers, Scorpio has quite an array of creatures all symbolizing different facets and skills! Practice and be aware of the energy you are calling or may apply and why.

Again I leave you with Rumi’s words:

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ~ Rumi (Libra Sun & Mercury, Venus & Mars in Scorpio. Born 9-30-1207)

Happy Birthdays, Scorpios!

Double Scorpio Neil Young Musician

Neil Young is no longer young, he is a cat with 9 lives! He’s an epic double Sun/Ascendant Scorpio born Nov 12, 1945, now 70 years old and still going strong! Though he has had a hard life, Neil has suffered from polio, epilepsy and back pain throughout his life, and, of course, he is also a famed singer/musician! Like a true life and death Scorpio, in 2000, he almost died from a procedure that ironically was intended to save him from a brain aneurysm! Near death misses are a Scorpio specialty, and they have extraordinary recuperative powers!

Challenge aspects for him are his Mars square Venus, a rare blood disease as a child, and muscular atrophy, polio. His Moon in Aquarius, cycles and brainwaves, epilepsy, squares his Sun in Scorpio, fixed, signs that indicate long term matters. They both at 0 degrees may be just beginning their journey, or could indicate a fresh start in this lifetime, recovering from old affairs of long ago. Mercury, the mind, is also opposite the Aquarius planet Uranus, stretching things to the limit. Lucky to have caught that aneurysm in time, and again when he fell on the street afterwards!!!

Other sets of aspects are exceptionally successful! He has two Kite patterns, in his case based by a Grand Trine in Air signs, that same Moon in Aquarius, its ruling planet Uranus in Gemini, and lucky Jupiter exponentially in Libra! Communications and connections worldwide! Add to that Mercury in Sagittarius, a thoughtful message with meaning, and Pluto in Leo, massive charisma, making two Kites! Further, Uranus and Pluto are connecting with Mercury and the Moon in a Mystic Rectangle! See his Chart!

As with all healers, having been there and back, saving is at the top of his list! Neil is a super environmentalist, advocate! Per Wiki, he is an ‘outspoken advocate for the welfare of small farmers, having co-founded in 1985 the benefit concert Farm Aid. He is currently working on a documentary about electric car technology, tentatively titled LincVolt. The project involves his 1959 Lincoln Continental converted to hybrid technology as an environmentalist statement. In 1986, Young helped found The Bridge School, an educational organization for children with severe verbal and physical disabilities, and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his ex-wife Pegi Young (née Morton). Young has three children: sons Zeke (born during his relationship with actress Carrie Snodgress) and Ben, who were diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and daughter Amber Jean who, like Young, has epilepsy.’

Young lives on his ranch near La Honda, California. Although he has lived in northern California since the 1970s and sings as frequently about U.S. themes and subjects as he does about his native country, he has retained his Canadian citizenship.

2016/17 Outer Planet Transit Aspects with Scorpio!

Scorpio Kundalini Heart Anonymity Rose

Pluto is in mid Capricorn through 2017. Pluto is Scorpio’s planet and in Capricorn is in a harmonious sextile sign, an earth and water mix. A darn good business person estimating time and money to the inch! Perfect! Mid degree Scorpios will be in sync, Scorpio being Pluto’s planet and both of them determined to build a strong future. Scorpio minds the money, Capricorn minds the time. Materials are recycled, found at the best prices. Scorpio wants a clean machine – bodily, mentally, spiritually. They try on the cloak of power to find power is good when used for caring cause, healing and transformation. Capricorn minds the divine dharma, the work of the Soul and sacred places. Brick by brick they build for solidarity of the ages, for our children’s’ futures.

Neptune is in its own sign, at the first third of Pisces. It is a water Planet in the last water sign seeking a deeper side of life. Neptune is oceanic – is still like glass becalmed, has forever tidal cycles, titanic storms, tsunamis! Scorpio, the second water sign, is both enticed and fearful of being caught in the web, does it anyway just to see what will happen. Scorpio is fascinated by life and death and has an uncanny ability to survive. Neptune can create and be abraded by minute particles, fine grains of sand that may eventually dull its sparkle. Scorpio is the cleaner, detoxer, whispering to Neptune to shake it loose! Neptune reads Scorpio’s intentions, even the ones Scorpio has hidden from himself. Revelation is certain. Whether gentle or ripped, perspective shifts amorphously, a new Being emerges.

Uranus is just past the mid of Aries, moving into the final half of the degrees. Uranus is the planet of Aquarius, so unique that utter freedom is a given. Scorpio does and doesn’t like change and isn’t usually BFFs with Uranian Aquarians or Aries. Uranus won’t be ruled, as an intelligent observant air flavor, not likely to be intimidated, manipulated or tricked. Aries prods and won’t leave you alone once they get a bee in their bonnet. But Scorpio knows how deep his well is, and has some values that are important to be reserved, preserved. However, changes will seep down to the lower levels. Aries opens a psychic crown portal, Uranus distracts with shocks, Scorpio always curious, inadvertently allows entry. In time he sees some change empowers, and there is a surprising boost of energy! Hang on and let go!

Chiron, like Neptune is also in Pisces, starting the last third of the sign. It goes into Aries 2018-19. The Magi Society thinks Chiron is the #1 marriage factor and good in business. Scorpio is good with Pisces waters, loves a deep swim, snorkeling, diving, the challenge of dark and the rush of immensity! Strong trusting bonds of marriage and business partners are deep in their Spirit. Mergers give more options. What was lost may heal incredibly and transform. Mutual surrender has merit. A new life is in the offing.

Saturn is a third to half way through Sagittarius in 2016. It retrogrades from 16 degrees back to 9 degrees. Factors in your chart from 9 to 16 degrees will be activated one after the other, the 2nd and 3rd times! Saturn is Capricorn’s planet, expecting seeable results on time. It can have a harsh manner, be cool and aloof – their praise is well earned and means a lot. Saturn in Sagittarius is more flexible, but still wants a good job done. Scorpio is uncomfortable with Sagittarius truth seeking. Scorpio lets information out when it is timely to do so, or not at all. It’s private. Yet at times, playing it so close to the chest, we miss opportunities because no one knew we wanted them! Saturn will help keep Sag in check, be respectful. If Scorpio is laughed at, sadly, there may be payback later. Sag does have things to teach though, so don’t miss the open door.

Scorpio is good with Saturn, both determined Light workers in their own ways. Scorpio clears, removes, renovates; Saturn is the builder. Scorpio is the power behind, the money that makes it happen, while Capricorn bosses the crew, is constantly alert, keeps time on the project. Saturn is going for honor and the long term good. He’s the front man, and credits Scorpio. Scorpio needs recognition in a good way. Scorpio offers strength when times are tough, reminding us how we have survived before, are creatively resourceful. If there is an end-of-life circumstance, they will be there for you. They are excellent counselors.

Jupiter in Libra is a volatile Fire in Air combination, loves to carry on getting to know you. Scorpio is famous for listening without blinking! You tell them all about yourself and realize you know little about them. Jupiter in Libra is entertaining, to say the least. They have amazing stories of their travels and the people they have met. Scorpio loves hearing of cultures and customs, different ways of thinking and living life. They are charged and won’t mind hearing more. In time they may come to share about themselves. That’s when you know you have gained their trust, it’s special and means a lot to them. Scorpio learns it is ok to open up more. On the business front, Jupiter in Libra is the liaison, representative, the legal team. Scorpio holds them close. Jupiter learns to respect what’s confidential and why.

Happy Birthdays, Scorpios, and may your new year be blessed in every way!


Any of these outer planet factors may be activating other factors in your chart as well as your Sun. They may be difficult, may be rosy, maybe both! Check with your favorite astrologers for the whole picture! May it go well with you….

Scorpio, Passion for Life!

Scorpio Yoga Cobra Pose Kundalini Awakening Woman

Yoga ~ Cobra Pose, Kundalini Awakening

Libra is sunset, Scorpio is dark! But the Kundalini of Scorpio is the Fire at the base of your spine, the Light within!

Cooling time of year, time to make ourselves strong, gather wood for winter fires, prepare shelter, share and trade stores. There is an intensity due to necessity to survive. And in those dark snuggly nights under the hides, we are passionate and summer children are born later.

Scorpio is the sign of the deepest love, until death do us part. Some are masters of Sex, from courtship to consummation. Tantric sex is a super special practice that can take intimacy to the Soul level. It’s not just pleasing your partner, but making love with the Universe.

Love makes us feel safe to be vulnerable to heal our roots – past lives, childhood, relationship hurts, bodily pains. Cleaning your fibers, clearing your way. Healing makes us feel safe to take care of ourselves, to be vulnerable to love. Protection of the scorpion comes first, being able to say ‘Don’t tread on me.’ Rising up like the serpent on the physician’s/healer’s/magician’s staff brings us into the Light.

There are two serpents. They don’t touch yet they are entwined. They are equal. We do better together, more whole and complimentary, collaborative. Teachers and healers must not unduly make demands of their students, interfere with their student’s right to make their own choices. A healer must always know they the healer don’t know everything, in fact it is often important for them not to!!! Students must respect their teachers, yet know as the student they have their own Dharma to live regardless how much their teacher wants what the teacher wants. Delicate balances of caring.

Washing away the dross, diluting and removing soiling poisons, frees us to see without revenge, to speak in clean tongue, to renew lost relationships. A new potency emerges and we step beyond past failings. We are able to connect at higher levels.

The heights are symbolized by raptors, birds of prey with keen eyesight and the elevation to see from! They are powerful, fly long distances. Scorpio Hunters seek a higher point of view, note our weaknesses, see where support is needed. The Eagle is the USA’s bird, and many think the USA astrology chart has a Scorpio Ascendant. Our country has had great wealth, as fierce mergers have been made, multiplying profits. Greed has been a struggle for many, while others have  turned their profits under, further enriching our soil. Some has been given for great causes, world healing, to relieve suffering, empower transformation.

We are fascinated, sometimes infatuated, by each other. That splendid attraction opens our Spirit to ask questions, to extend ourselves, be charmed by layer after layer of divine experience. We get to know one another deeply, be more genuine, seek what is important. Scorpios live like this. They are our guides through the tunnel, the therapist taking us deep within. The midwives that birth us anew.

Scorpios are noted for their strength. They often have explored the most dangerous and come out unscathed. They take on demons and are redeemed. They want to see it all, be it all, and can reform against great odds. They know what being saved means. At times they are revered, not straying an iota, staunchly moral. Temptations yes, but not falling. Whatever place you may be at in this continuum, it is honorable. You are doing the work. Slow progress is perfect. No progress is a vantage point of deepening and observation, becoming one with what troubles you, understanding. If you are peeking out, have a good look. Make your plans. If you have stepped into the Light, know it may not be comfortable at first. Go back and forth for a bit. You will get used to making the transition. Knowing where you came from makes for a kinder person with a passion of caring. Then the story becomes not just about you, but others as well.

Use your power and passion in a good way, to heal, not harm.

New Moon of Dreams!   – Trine Neptune, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Super SuperMoon! Full Frosty, Beaver Moon!  – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sign Changes, Jupiter Square Pluto!

New Moon of Dreams!  – Trine Neptune, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Sunday Oct 30, 10:38 AM Pacific at 7 SC 44 

New Moon Grand Canyon Milky Way

Remote and sacred places on a dark night are perfect choices for your Scorpio… Grand Canyon is one of the best places in the world to witness celestial wonders. Don’t think for a second that outdoor adventures end when the sun goes down!

No Full Moon over the ominous castle on Halloween this year! Instead, it will be fittingly dark! But it does precede the Presidential Election. It will hold some of the deeper secrets – some yet to be played, some never to be known.

New Moons of the longer nights time of year have an even deeper feel. Leaves are blanketing earth, protecting the soil from drying winds, storm runoff, mouldering and feeding our soils for spring growth to come. New Moons complete cycles and we feel the endings, the accomplishments, what lingers to be carried on into the new cycle.

Maybe we sleep a little more deeply and the dreams are more vivid as we come closer to our Soul’s longings. This is especially true this time because the New Moon and Mercury trine, flow well, with Neptune in Pisces, the planet and sign of dreams and magic! Intuition abides, Mercury the translator is at hand. Scorpio questions the dream’s meaning. Moon remembers long ago times, and how the Mother’s Mother taught her children. Sun shines, even in the dark, giving a glow to special moments that they may be shared. Mercury, keenly records the whispers and nuances to give them full expression, context, a perspective of the times.

New Moon and Mercury are semi sextile Jupiter in Libra, giving a living breath, further intensifying Jupiter’s relationships. Passions for learning are focusing as new steps are revealed, the core energy must be answered, the Kundalini can’t be ignored! It’s what we live for!

Jupiter in turn closely exchanges principles with hardworking Saturn, now in Jupiter’s sign Sagittarius, that feels the responsibility to do the mission one is meant to do! Education, the kind that suits your learning style, is imperative! Venus is right at Saturn’s shoulder showing us how wonderful a choice it is! It’s lovely, an enjoyable journey, charmed, worthy, and makes hella good sense! There is great mentorship, and the fees may be at a discount!

Saturn and Venus are semi sextile Pluto! There is a rapport because Saturn is the planet of Pluto’s current sign Capricorn. Saturn is ever so sensible, though in Sagittarius he is more inquisitive than usual. There are many paths to the mountain top, and he chooses well. Venus adds grace and charisma, a sweet smile, and off they go arm in arm. Pluto sees they have got something, and puts his money there! Pluto adds a couple footnotes that make the journey and the story even better. There’s an old Master up the road they must see.

The big aspect is Jupiter upcoming square Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, exact Nov 24. This New Moon and the Nov 14 Full Moon, both include this aspect and provide a foreground of thoughtful matters leading to Nov 24, as well as being the pre and post election charts.

No, it isn’t all going to be easy. Whatever the obstacles, they need to be addressed sooner than later. It could be there is a start, but the finish is delayed. Money runs out. Someone close may require a lot care time and that sets you back. Keep your balance as possible; focus on priorities. Watch your own health, no burnout. You may be hard pressed to make deadlines. Important to set boundaries to protect what time you do have. See More

Mars is also in Capricorn, but mostly working on his own now. He sextiled Chiron, squared Uranus Friday the 28th. He and Chiron may have found a better way to do the job. Square Uranus, he likely left a friend or two behind. There could have been challenges over who was in charge, an accidental mess, too much weight. Perhaps he thought Uranus in Aries was irresponsible and Uranus, loving his freedom, simply let Mars go without much ado.

Preceding the Presidential Election, some will do last days of Soul searching to decide how to vote or whether to vote. Scorpio is able to make sacrifices, surrender and hold peace in difficult or imperfect circumstances while biding their time. Things change. With Jupiter in Libra there are powerful dichotomies, extreme polarities. Most of us agree we want the world to be a better place. Be thinking what you can do, personally, to make that happen. Working together is sometimes easier said than done. If your candidate wins, stay kind. If you candidate loses, stay kind. Middle ground may not be an option you choose, but be respectful as you fulfill your choice. Some of us will be walking paths we have never done before. Take it easy on yourself and others.

Steady in the Light and good luck on your journey.

Super SuperMoon! Full Frosty, Beaver Moon! – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sign Changes, Jupiter Square Pluto!

Monday November 14, 5:52 AM Pacific at 22 Taurus 37

Exquisite Full Moon Frosty by David Cartier Sr Phoenix Rising Meditation

David Cartier, Sr. says ‘I was attracted to the way the slight bit of ice fog in the subzero air seemed to be sucking the moonbeam straight downwards.’ Exquisite image he calls Frosty Moon. I think it is a perfect Phoenix rising meditation.

11.10.2016 Note: Donald J Trump is President-elect. There were many successes for women! 52-year-old Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto became the nation’s first Latina Senator, replaces Democratic minority leader Senator Harry Reid. In California, State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris was elected as the state’s first freshman Senator in 24 years. Harris is the first black politician to represent California, the second black woman ever to join the Senate, and the first woman ever elected as California attorney general. 48 year-old Tammy Duckworth, a congresswoman from Illinois and the first disabled woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, won the race for US Senate. Ilhan Omar became the nation’s first Somali-American legislator after she won a House seat in Minnesota. The 34-year-old succeeded with 80% of the vote! Kate Brown was elected as the nation’s first openly LGBT governor in Oregon. (GoodNewsNetwork.org)

Now we know who our next President will be. Only a week after the election, we will be comparing how it is with how we speculated it might be. A Taurus Moon is organic and practical, will help us make the most of what we can. We have a need to stay calm, keep basic resources intact. Scorpio Sun seeks alliances that will withstand any storms. It ferrets monies away in secure untouchable places. It strikes and takes advantage of any opportunities that may occur unexpectedly. Scorpio, a water sign, flows along mighty channels, sweeping debris out of the way, leaving silt for more fertile ground. Full circle, the floodplains become rich Taurus soil for new growth. From rampage to rampant abundance!

The nature of Full Moon oppositions is to divide and conquer, have awareness of a primordial axiom. It bridges the difference by making us lift our heads to be aware of the other. We finds ways to work in concert, each contributing their remarkable specialty. Or, we acknowledge that real differences exist to the natural exclusion of each other at this time, and let each other go on our own good way. Many options, often several together in overlapping layers.

Elementally, Taurus is mine, Scorpio is ours. Taurus acquires and owns; Scorpio shares and possesses! Taurus stills and absorbs like the Buddha; Scorpio, though outwardly doesn’t show it, hosts the human eternal flame, the Kundalini, the power at the base of the spine. Taurus solidly fortifies while Scorpio scathes and scorches! When friendly, it checks the perimeter so no one even gets to the fort! Both are fixed signs, so battles may continue over aeons of lifetimes, but, when they say it is done, it’s over. Some battles are within ourselves, others are with loved ones, or people around us. Oppositions cause us to study our so called opponent. Even if we ignore them, we are forced to see what to ignore! Paradoxically, as we come to understand, we make peace.

Our Full Moon axis leaves two planets behind. There was a Chiron bow, trine the Sun, sextile the Moon. Chiron is in Pisces, the possibility of Soul and Spirit healing, dreams of saving cherished remnants, piecing things to a renewed wholeness. There is consideration of immortality, things more important than simple mortal existence, living for body and money. Some teachings come subtly, like bubbles rising slow motion in the water, like visions in the fog, in and out of focus, a sound in the distance you aren’t sure of…yet it calls to you. You can feel it.

Sun is leaving the inconjunct with Uranus, Moon is leaving the semisextile. This set is nagging and disturbing. Good. There are new things to incorporate into our plans, but fixed signs prefer what’s already established. They, however, are the perfect signs to carry a new order forward. They don’t make change lightly, so what they accept, usually has merit if they are to bother with it at all. Taurus is sensible, and Scorpio is astute at seeing what’s behind the excitement. There may be a shift in alliances, or who does what, to get it all done.

Mercury, Venus and Mars have all changed signs since our New Moon only two weeks ago, and they are in close degrees! Mercury is now in Sagittarius sextile Mars in Aquarius! There are things to be said, and now! Independence, right action, freedom, need to be spoken as teachings community wide. New friends can be made, a new computer or programs very helpful. Venus, now in Capricorn, sits at the Mercury/Mars midpoint making sure they don’t exaggerate, are polite, have backup for what they claim. Venus wants respect for the message, and things to get done in a timely fashion to have maximum impact.

Jupiter is closer to sextile Saturn. They get very close, but not exact until Aug 27. Jupiter retrogrades to make more social and professional relationships that will support their work later on. Jupiter cheers Saturn. They both want education presented in ways that are meaningful, have credibility, and easy to uptake. Jupiter in Libra goes for more youth, while Saturn in Sagittarius draws the elders. Saturn holds Jupiter to task, keeping their purpose a priority. Expanding the range of their work, or the breadth of their territory may cause more work but a greater payoff in time. Saturn should keep things from getting too thin and overextending themselves, missing the mark. See more

If they don’t stay the course with right action, the Nov 24 Jupiter square Pluto may bring them down. Or, if there are things that need recovery work that need addressing before Jupiter and Saturn can get on with their work, the cleanup and renovation needs be done first. Jupiter in Libra may be over trusting, afraid to call out problems because of not wanting to hurt feelings. Or they may jump to conclusions, exaggerate, make enemies. Pluto in Capricorn may be old school and end negotiations. Pluto may try to force issues, but Jupiter knows how to sidestep and run, call the attorney. Pluto may look like he is in total control yet be more vulnerable than you think. And there are times when you must tell it like it is and let the chips fall. If that is your choice, be ready for consequences and have a backup plan in order for possible contingencies.

If Jupiter uses discretion and finesse – not manipulation, Pluto may be happy to receive him. Jupiter is often genuine and straightforward, honest with no tricks, means well. Pluto is not threatened, and in fact impressed with these sophisticated Libra ideas. They may both come out with some grand agreements, a plan that may be tinkered with, but develops well over time! See more

This is the last Moon before the Jupiter square Pluto is exact the first time. A Full Moon, an opposition, examines the range of values between the signs. Both have true principles and standards at different sides of the table. Use both, to judge the matters appropriate to one side or the other.

Jupiter square Pluto is the second aspect of the 2016 Oct to Dec 31 set of six that repeat two more times throughout 2017, the final aspect Nov 11, 2017.  Choices now will change as things develop. Look to your long term future to make best picks and get off to a good start.

Saturn in Sagittarius is still in close semisextile with Pluto. Saturn, ruling the sign Capricorn that Pluto is now in, will have an honorable say with Pluto, asking for leniency, to hold back for a while, to consider a more generous solution. However, kindly Venus is no longer with Saturn, and if things have just gone too far, his ethics offended, he may call for an example to be made, complete culpability.

Neptune in Pisces is at Moon’s South Node. Some of the ideas of the time may come from past lives, dreams of a long time ago, longings of many Souls. There may be a revival, a welling up, waves of tears ~ of happiness for a recognition from within, or of the Universe! Compassion replaces arrogance. There may be wrongs to be righted, healing to be done, shyness to overcome, to free your Spirit to step into this new frame.

Technicalities per Space.com  The “supermoon.” The full moon that occurs on this day will also very nearly coincide with perigee, the object’s closest approach to Earth for the year, in an event popularly known as a supermoon. The moon will turn full at 8:52 a.m. EST (1352 GMT), just 2.4 hours after it comes within just 221,541 miles (356,536 km) of the planet. (The moon’s average distance from Earth in its elliptical orbit is 238,900 miles, or 384,470 km.) The last time the moon came this close was on Jan. 26, 1948! Expect a large range in ocean tides (exceptionally low to exceptionally high) for the next few days.

We may feel a bit tidal ourselves! Even great Scorpio rivers have tides where they meet the ocean! Those of you who are coastal, take your camera with you for some super low and high tide shots!

Enjoy the Super SuperMoon! May your Circle Ceremonies be Healing.
