New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio on the 23rd.
Over our heads, aware of the cost and no turning back…
Yet it’s hopeful.
Who doesn’t want a change?
~That’s right, everyone wants a change.~
The old way has taken us this far, but we can’t stop here,
we put some blood into it,
and that most precious vial of scorpionic fluid: hope.
It hurts for Scorpio to hope, it’s almost as if there was a limited supply.
~that’s what you get with capricorn in the 3rd. A fear, or should we say knowledge based pragmatism.~
No matter. There is hope involved here.
Venus in her darkest and most irresistible guise brings forth her small store of atomic … passion… potency… surrender?
A biological imperative is released.
A sudden temperature …
Mercury turns direct at 16 degrees Libra, on Saturday, the 25th. Make a note of what’s happening, because in March, 2015, Uranus and Pluto square off at this degree. This should be interesting, especially if you have natal planets at 16 Cardinal.
Mercury in Libra struggles to make decisions. With Mercury retrograde in the sign, that goes double. With Mercury direct in Libra, people will be headed towards a decision…that will most likely be made, when Mercury hits Scorpio and made real, when Mercury in Scorpio conjuncts Saturn towards the end of November.

With this Venus/Mars blend, there’s a need to relate with the “other” on a physical/tangible level. Stability and consistency are integral ingredients to creating a rock solid union with another.
There’s a suggestion that energy is most productively applied toward endeavors which build bridges between parties and foster harmonious rapport. However, clinging to inertia and underestimating the potential in relationships as vehicles for deep psychological change along with submergence of one’s individuality in intimate liaisons are themes which need to be squarely examined within this planetary combination.
There’s a danger in wholly accepting partnerships at “face value” without analyzing the more elaborate implications of behavior, motivations and the changes which occur in our thinking as a result of merging our concepts and values with another.
To be deeply involved is to risk. Both courageously voicing one’s observations and also accepting …
Nice and controlling, that is!
This airy sociability will be interesting to watch and experience, as we head into Thurday’s solar eclipse in Scorpio.

Tuesday morning the Moon moves from Virgo to Libra, Mercury ruled to Venus ruled. With both Mercury and Venus in Libra, the transition should be smooth and pleasant. The mood shifts focus from the mind to the aesthetic. So comb your hair or whatever it is that you do. It’s an attractive mood!(…)

Scorpio is about transformation of self through joining with others. It rules sex, death and shared resources (including inheritances, taxes etc). Its symbols are the snake, eagle, phoenix, scorpion. This is where we shed our skin to reveal a new layer of being.
Eclipses present a break with the past and a chance for a new beginning. At 0 degrees, this eclipse also links to what is called the ‘Aries point’ (beginning of the zodiac) and thus is particularly potent (try saying that ten times!!!) Within its shadow, we can we finally face those hidden parts of ourselves that keep us dancing in the dark. What ever you are clinging to, it’s time to let go.
The period between two eclipses is especially powerful. The Full Moon eclipse two weeks ago in Libra highlighted relationships and the underlying polarization of …
The Uranus Pluto transit to my natal Mercury has created tremendous upheaval in my life. Nothing bad has happened. But in the last couple months, we’ve decided to move ‘cross country, a year sooner. I’ve planted grass over my garden, torn up the kitchen and now the bathroom.
I’ve given a truckload of stuff to my neighbor, who likes to have yard sales. I don’t want to move this stuff, or sell it, so this is the easiest way to clear things out and reward a good neighbor (Mercury) in the process.

It is an irony that Michelangelo, the man who produced some of the finest works our world has ever seen and who glorified earth with heavenly beauty, was “ugly” himself! And not just ugly but actually disfigured! Not by nature but out of an act of violence inflicted upon him by one of his fellow students bearing the name Pietro Torrigiano!
Torrigiano was anything but a minor personality. In time he would become a great artist himself. He is accredited as the person who kick started the British Renaissance (he escaped to England after injuring Michelangelo – as the latter was a protegee of the omnipotent Florentine family of the Medici)! Torrigiano was gifted alright but somehow unlucky too, as he was born at the same time and place as Michelangelo. This meant that he was condemned…
All the Scorpionic themes are coming up as the Sun and Venus arrive in this sign on Thursday accompanied by a pivotal solar eclipse here too. This isn’t just an extreme case for Scorpios but for every sign. As the leaves fall off the trees, nature is laid bare, we are all asked to strip down to what lies underneath. It’s an opportunity to take a good look at ourselves and consider the most powerful, passionate, intense aspects of our lives. Eclipses are sometimes presented as a fait accompli – events happen that re-shape our lives. It is a force of destiny and as Scorpio is all about re-birth, transformation and renewal we get to see life after death in this life. The solar eclipse always triggers a new cycle which requires the end of the old one. We can …
