satori on ElsaElsa » Weekend Love Forecast

October 25th, 2014 @ 4:44 am by satori on ElsaElsa

Paper MoonFriday evening the post-eclipse Scorpio Moon is still juicy and full of promise. It trines Chiron, quincunxes Uranus, and squares Jupiter. The mood is ripe with deep complexity, but ready to go, ready to head in a new direction with just a little push. It’s complicated, but it’s also exciting… and delightfully succulent. It’s set to pop with the juices running down your chin. (…)

vintage scorpio artMy friend, Ben, is about to lose his mother.  They’re both Scorpios. I wouldn’t even try describe their relationship or pretend that I understand it’s complexity. But I have been in his life for thirty years, and I do know this…

When the chips are down, Ben can rely on his mother and she can rely on him. It doesn’t matter if they like each other, love each other, repulse each other, or any combination of those things.  If one of them calls on the other, that call will be answered.

This month contains two eclipses – a Full Moon/Lunar eclipse on Oct 8 at 15 Aries and a New Moon/Solar eclipse today (Oct 23) at 1 Scorpio. Since eclipses are reliable harbingers of change, you may wonder what this means when an eclipse activates your chart.

Any time an eclipse comes within 3-5 degrees of a conjunction or opposition to a planet or sensitive point (Ascendant, Midheaven, or Nodes) in your chart, you can reliably expect something to change related to the nature of the sign, house, or affected planet.

However, it is not so easy to predict what that change will be. It is said that eclipses are “wild cards.” They stir up some aspect of your life that is in need of change and present brand new circumstances.

Lunar eclipses carry the energy of a full moon …

Scorpio Eclipse 
New Moon
October 23, 2014
5:56pm EDT 
0 Scorpio 24

As always I find the Mercury retrograde a wee bit challenging to my schedule.  To say the least.  Anyway,  I just posted the Scorpio New Moon Eclipse report with about about ninty minutes to spare before the eclipse.   Yeah, that is just how I’m rolling these days.

I am excited by this New Moon Solar Eclipse.   It is the beginning a new cycle that I think will benefit us all –if we are paying attention.   You will find the whole article on Margaret Wendt’s website.  

Here is a snippet to article

Welcome to Scorpio New Moon.
And Happy Solar Eclipse.
We’re in an exciting period because this New Moon at 0 Scorpio will be followed by Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces New Moons all at 0 degrees. Obviously

Whatever else he did, cartoonist, illustrator and writer Edward Gorey inspired numerous other writers and artists to use multiple adjectives when describing his work, and himself: merry but macabre, eclectic and eccentric, whimsically wicked…and more. He’s a good candidate, then, as Arty Farty Friday subject for the week leading to Hallowe’en.

Edward Gorey was born on 22 February 1925 in…

lupusToday, we’re negotiating our new roof, gutters and windows after a hail storm. The bathroom is still in the process of being remodeled. Everyone’s schedule is unpredictable, so we’re all just sort of clanging along.

In the last three weeks, I have seen am orthopedic surgeon, a neurologist, a radiologist, a PA and finally, a rheumatologist. I now know that I have lupus. I’ll soon be taking an anti-malaria drug for it. No one expected this.

ElsaElsa » Family Matriarch

October 23rd, 2014 @ 1:38 pm by ElsaElsa

matriachA man in his forties is engaged to be married. His mother doesn’t like the woman.

It doesn’t really matter if she has good cause or not. She does not like the woman, she is never going to like the woman; consequently no one in the family is going to be at ease, until and unless this man dumps this woman.

That’s how much power the family matriarch holds, in many case. In most cases?

mercury-cigarette-cardMany people have mentioned that this Mercury retrograde period has been brutal.  I’ve seen it in my life and in the lives around me. I thought it might help to explain this.

Earlier this year, Mars was in Libra for eight months. Remember that?  Relationships where coarse, to say the least. Many picked fights. The “other” fought back.

Mars represents raw male energy. Raw: not processed or purified. So just think about relationships (Libra) being ravaged for the better part of a year.  Now Mercury stations in the middle the sign. This causes us to think about it.

Further, Mercury  is squaring opposing Uranus and squaring Pluto.  I call this, “Postcards from the dead”.
