Scorpio Eclipse 
New Moon
October 23, 2014

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”.

This partial solar eclipse in Scorpio will be visible from most of North America. The time will depend on where you live. Use the correct types of goggles or devices to protect your eyes if you get the chance to watch it. On the East Coast, it will almost a “sunset” eclipse. It will initiate in Siberia on the morning of October 24, crossing over the international dateline and end in North America in the afternoon of October 23. Yes, I said that right, starts on the 24th and ends on the 23rd. Timing is everything… :^)This New Moon will apply pressure on us to change out old behaviors for more effective ones, or at the very least, more efficient ones. The Mercury retrograde will end in a few days. That will help us get back on track.

Dear Stargazers:

On October 23, 2014, there is a partial New Moon Solar
Eclipse at 00′ degrees of Scorpio.
Scorpio is the sign symbolic of the scorpion, serpent, eagle, phoenix, and
dove; stages of psychological growth and regneration.

Both Mars and Pluto rule over contagious and infectious
disease.  With Pluto, currently
transiting Capricorn, and Mars transiting Out-of-Bounds
(OOB) in…

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. It is where the phoenix rises from the ashes.

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
