12/9 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):
This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It’s only temporary, this is just the Universe’s way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy. If your energy is low and you’re feeling challenged to see the bright side of things, it is better to just time-out, rest & replenish (if possible) and most of all, do not initiate any grand plans as you are not really seeing things as they truly are at this time. Luckily, this is a pretty short-lived activation.
12/9 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):
11/30 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility):
This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed, fixed or stabilized in your life or environment. One expression of this energy is a tendency toward depression or apathy, but a better expression would be facing what needs to be done and following through on what you have already begun. You may feel the need to organize things at home or work, or perhaps take a class or workshop of some sort that will help you attain your current goals. Either way, be focused but not too serious – balance in all things. It’s only when you focus on the lack and limitation that you feel overwhelmed and sometimes helpless. That’s not the point of this energy. It’s just time to do some serious thinking, tend to the details, take stock and make changes accordingly.
11/23 ~ Mercury (ideas) ~trine~ Neptune (dreams):
This energy activates your creative process & intuition. You may catch yourSelf unconsciously drifting aimlessly but a better use of this combination is to open to the other realms for ideas & information and play with it, free flow, see where it leads. It is not the time for pragmatic analysis, but more a time to explore the infinite possibilities available to you, as well as what’s going on in your own consciousness. You may be more sensitive than usual, opening yourself to information or awareness that isn’t always that readily available. Remember, to keep good boundaries when *opening* like this and if you have to be around people, try to maintain the mystical, creative vibe this energy is best for.
This is special Eclipse post. We are in a special zone. Although eclipses do happen every 6-months, the signs evolve and therefore the lessons & available energies shift about 1-2 years. Right now, we are deep into the Gemini/Sag series but what you should know is that they actually move backwards through the signs so here too, I remind you about my saying “everything is a response to the last thing and preparation for the next thing”. We had our Cancer/Capricorn Eclipses 2018-2020 (akin to 2000-2002) which rearranged our fundamentals, little did we know what that was really preparing us for with now. Now, we have all these new choices & possibilities but they also seem very tied to or based on what you believe to be true or possible. Either way, we always learn during Gemini/Sag Eclipses 2020-2021 (akin to 2001-2003) and the social/collective realms always evolve too. So what can you remember about those years and what you knew then and what you know now that can inform your choices in the present moment?
Scorpio brought some very real, very heavy duty stuff to the surface for most people. That kind of deep energy shift is the catalyst for the *Spiritual Quest* energy of Sag. Sagittarius is the adventurer and researcher of the zodiac, curious about the deeper meaning of all things and cultivating Truth. Since we know that all seeds germinate in the darkness, where Scorpio’s magic breathes life in to Taurus’ Garden, we now encounter the most vital part of the process ~ Sag’s unwavering FAITH in the process that leads to Capricorn’s tangible Earthly results (form).
Scorpio energy conjures so many visuals for me …
• Phoenix from the ashes
• Purification by fire and/or water
• Inevitable change
• Sacrifice of the old to birth the new
• Making the taboo sacred
• Death, rebirth & transformation
• Touring the Underworld
• Delving deeply into the SoulSelf
11/15 ~ Super/New Moon in SCORPIO:
This Scorpio New Moon is really powerful for *seeding* your deepest, soul-level desires. This is an annual opportunity to return to the Infinite Void (conception point) and set some completely new intentions. There is also additional energy available at this time from your Invisible Team of Support ~ your own Angels, Ancestors & Animal Spirit Guides who walk with you now & always. This New Moon opens a portal of sorts, one that allows us to align with the ultimate power of transformation, transcending the current form, on Individual, as well as Social/Collective levels.
11/9 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~oppose~ Mars Rx (purpose & desire):
This energy brings a balance & integration of your Inner Sacred Masculine & Feminine energies. Your Inner Sacred Masculine is supposed to negotiate on your behalf, get your ideas in the world & maintain good boundaries, while your Inner Sacred Feminine is a guiding force that creates space to contain & nurture life and your creative babies. Because it is an opposition, it’s time to check in with your SoulSelf to make sure you’re not swinging between extremes, or trying to force issues rather than being open & receptive and going with the flow. Of course, Venus & Mars brings relationships into the light, forcing issues of balance & integration within your relationships as well. Remember, as you change, others must change or go away. As you integrate more balance within you, maintaining balance with others becomes almost effortless.
11/1 ~ Mercury Rx (communication/expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits/reality):
(2 of 3: 9/23 ~ 11/1 ~ 11/6)
This energy is good for deep thinking rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy making communications with others a little harder than usual. You may feel like people don’t understand what you’re trying to convey or that you’re coming across more negative than positive. This is not a good energy for business negotiations unless every detail is very clear to all involved. This energy makes you most critical of your Self, but it could trickle over onto others as well. Beware of a tendency toward apathy, pessimism and/or depression, that’s Saturn & Mercury, which makes it more mental than literal.
10/27 ~ This is a special day energetically. Mercury Retrograde is re-entering Libra, asking us to continue the review process. In Scorpio, you may have been sifting through emotions & feelings that need to be processed, but the vibration is shifting to our ideas, thoughts & concepts of balance, harmony & cooperative relationships of all kinds. We need to re-think how we interact with each other and come up with new ways that are more effective in the here & now. The same day, Venus moves into Libra too so we are blessed to have our Sacred Feminine guiding the rest of the retrograde and she’s in her home sign, which makes her even stronger. We should be guided by our hearts and holding the vision of balance for all life. Right now we have extremes playing out internally, externally & environmentally so the more we can hold our own center during changing or transitional times, the more likely we can come through to the other side with some kind of new wisdom & understanding.
