- 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.

Saturn turned direct, forward, June 12, but is still holding a one degree orb, range, to his 10 degree Libra station (appears to be stationary, still, in the sky) until July 8. As said last month, ‘those of you with planets at 8 through 12 degrees will feel the need to enforce or question the rules, make or break commitments, let go or take responsibility, respond to age issues, make career choices, engage in father/ing matters, build for a stable future. Being overwhelmed burdens the Soul; timing that fits the deed and your needs and your Spirit makes all the difference. Focus and do your best. Make yourself proud! Now’s the time to turn around, take it forward!’
Jupiter is now well founded in Taurus, up to 3 degrees, working its way to the Retrograde station at 10 degrees! Familiar degree?! It will be stationary at 10 degrees from Aug 15 to Sep 14. To me this is significant because this is the other sign VENUS rules. Libra, and Taurus. It will hold this 150 degrees, quincunx, inconjunct, away from the 10 degree Libra position that Saturn is now holding. Taurus and Libra both have to do with love and beauty. Taurus is of money and worldly goods, a lovely body to sculpt, earth herself. Libra is of marriage love, grace, and etiquette, fine arts, exquisite landscapes. Saturn in Libra has called us to build this Libran beauty into our lives, each our own way, to take time for grace, allow a patina of maturity, respect. Jupiter in Taurus invites a recognition and acceptance of organic, intrinsic being, what is, basic values. It senses a solid step in the ‘right’ direction. It sees a broader beauty that comes from simple peace. Yoga. As Swami Krishnananda says, it is ‘a perceptional change, and not merely an act of doing something with your body.’
In this case, in the sequence of time, Libra has been first, Taurus will follow. That’s in reverse of zodiacal order. So humans and their personal balance, and their balance among our peers comes first. How we treat our self, each other. If we don’t treat ourselves well and have bank of grace with some to spare, giveaway, how will we be magnetic and attract beauty, with the financial poise that brings peace? Sometimes a perfect storm clears the path; other times, a gentle fearless course, a smile at your enemy, dispels the battle, quells the defenses. Through the lovingness of another (Libra), a courtship of Spirit, we are blessed with seeing, feeling, we are so very ok to BE our Self, just the way we are (Taurus). Divine.
Fascinating combination, Jupiter in Taurus. In Taurus Jupiter is grounded, toned down, less needing to wander off, pleased with where it has landed, becomes more the observer, offers options for expansion. Taurus is jazzed up with Jupiter on its turf, gets curious with the ‘what ifs,’ is a wee bit more motivated, less its predictable self, dabbles in foreign affairs. The rolling stone gathers no moss.

This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide. The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow. But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction. The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus. Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word!
Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then. It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures. Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity. A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’
Scorpio Moon? Taurus is mine. Scorpio is ours. Sharing. Mutual funds. A gathering of resources from the deepest realms. The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust. The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades. Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words. The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.
Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day. This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning. What binds us? Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain? Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level? To return to our prime mission? To let go and keep walking?
Walk it, share as you can. I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer. The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center. Join me in Spirit if you wish. By your grace.

We have Ascendants, are descendants of those who went before us. Why not be Transcendents?!
And how do you do that? Most of all, if you are making good progress yourself, how did you do it, how do you teach others how to do that? Not only are we transcendent, but we bestow transcendence – another level of transcendence!
By example is, perhaps, the simplest. Just do, be, the thing you want to see happen. Like a smile.
With empathy. Compassionate understanding of different abilities, personal histories, past lives, can make an incredible difference when nothing else makes sense. Be alert to the needs of others, their capacity, readiness.
Tease the Spirit into play. Do things that are exciting, engage happiness! That could mean blood moving exercise, art that pulls the heart, giving tools of an enticing trade, maybe a video camera or keyboard, sailboat, vineyard, dance tutoring, a trip to a sacred place event – could be a meditation retreat.
Keen Spirited Pisces Photographer Ansel Adams
Feb 20, 1902, a true Pisces visionary see-er, Ansel Adams, keen musician, amazing Photographer, is a great example. He did what he loved. Sun & Mars in Pisces, Mercury trine Neptune, the Pisces planet, both retrograde. Blessed with an eidetic memory. Member of the Sierra Club, his images of Yosemite all seasons, were breathtakingly inspiring.
Education and Sales are close cousins. Each hopes to inspire you, telling you all the virtues, forms of transference of mental wealth. Your offering can be made seriously with quiet grace, or shouted laughingly with ‘Let’s do it’s!
However you go, minute by minute, year by year, dramatically or minutely, seen or completely unseen, internally, transcendence happens. Evolution is. Grace is. Not one other person may ever understand or ‘see’ you morph. Yet it happens. A day may come when people look at you and say, ‘You’ve changed.’ And, yes, you have.
It takes the time it takes. It is honorable. It is your Soul’s way of learning its own kind of temperance, spiritual patience, an internal strength and courage.
Blessed be. In gratitude. Keep your Light shining and your vision clear.

We are now on the threshold of Chiron entering Pisces for 7 years!
SEVEN years! Those 7 years will be in the same time Neptune is in its own sign Pisces, which starts April 4 for 15 years! That happens only every 168 years, and WE get to live it!!!! Double, even triple , magic of misty watery Pisces! And Neptune enters Pisces during the super charged firey Aries Stellium! It’s going to be off to a tremendous start! What it dreams, it does! Complete and perfect intuition inspires instant responsive positive action! Pisces can be shy, even timid, until it gets a cause to live for! Then, by God and Great Spirit, things happen with bells on! I hope you are graced with inspiration like none other, that fills your Whole Soul!
Jupiter left Pisces Jan 22, now passing the baton to Chiron. Jupiter was the precursor, looking for truth (Wikileaks), opening up then focusing on the point of selection, looking for the good in all ways. Chiron is considered to be a wound that happens, or a wound that needs healing. And, is considered to be a healer; it knows how because it has been there. Which begets the teacher! If you know how to heal, you can show others. Pisces loves being the savior or being saved, so it looks like a good fit. Spiritual business will be done.
Healings may be more subtle, invisible, invincible in Spirit. Spiritual wounds of feeling forsaken, misuse of spiritual power or powers, fear to step out of the shadows of past life ‘mistakes’ or punishments, living without mission, or matters of mercy, may be kinds of healings that occur both to oneself, and, or in behalf of others. They may somehow find mending, a quelling of misspent imagination, an inner reweaving of the strings of life as twined with others’ hearts, in a sensitive moment of seeing from a different facet or vantage point of compassion long-awaited. There is a gentling, and yet a tsunami of merging, not just looking at a person or situation, but seeing it as if you were the other person!
The Magi astrologers tell a different, or perhaps an additional story. They say Chiron is the #1 marriage factor in charts, love heals, and is a great business planet! Partners make more money! Marrying in Pisces is a cautions affair however. The worst is just plain denial, then the words ‘I just can’t believe it!’ If your friends say you are missing the signals, I would get the credit check and give it some time to prove out. The other side is marriage made in heaven. In surety. A gift of union Spirit-made. May you walk in Beauty.
Businesses that are of a Pisces nature may flourish! Anything ocean related, musics and arts, dancing Spiritually, retreats, magic and intuition, fine wines to feet treatments, computer programming, films, theatre, visionary repertoire, tending eyes and how we see, conscious dreaming! Throw in the spice of Chiron, and we are adding a business of curing whats needed in any of those fields, a marriage blend of any of those elements, the consultant, coach, seminars that uplift our goals and ideals! Blessed be.
Chiron enters Pisces Feb 8, Neptune April 4! Marriages, healing, business, magic! It will be a spiritual renaissance for those willing, ready, and able! Music and art will fill new dimensions. Compassion and insight will be called for as the world tussles with resurrection after Pluto in Capricorn topples the old ways to the ground! Stand tall, Live deep, LOVE well!
Please refer back to Chiron from Pisces, back into Aquarius, July 20 to Feb 8, 2011!
