monday october 29th-
at 3:47am mars in aquarius semisquares saturn in capricorn, creating tension between the two Malefic planets. mars/saturn can be great for discipline and focus but the shadow side of an intense aspect between these two can manifest as rigidity, control, depression and restriction. learning how to work creatively within limitations and boundaries is key- yet mars in aquarius does not like being boxed in! channel your will, drive and anger with consciousness today!
at 4:05am mercury cojoins jupiter at 27’49 scorpio, aligning the mind and intellect with the planet of expansion, abundance and positivity! mercury/juptier is GREAT for travel, teaching, learning, exploring and expanding. with both bodies in scorpio the depths, the shadow realms, emotions and transformative processes are in focus.
mercury in scorpio trines retrograde chiron in pisces at 6:57pm, aligning the mind and intellect with the Wounded Healer. mercury is triggering the jupiter/chiron trine that is exact on 11/1. this is an amazing aspect for healing, expansion of awareness and expanded states of consciousness. with both bodies in water signs emotional healing, emotional catharsis and using our voice to speak our Truth and be heard so we can heal is supported right now! jupiter is about to move into sagittarius- so this is the last hurrah of jupiter in scorpio which has seen some big shadows come into the Light in the last year (personally and collectively). the thing with shadow work is that the point of excavating what is hidden is in releasing the pent up energy that is within it. that which is Unconscious controls our life and we call it fate. shadow work is about reclaiming lost parts of self and doing the deep and profound work of integration and wholeness (which is what true enlightenment is all about). doing the deep work of healing around our 2nd chakras- creativity, sexuality, desire- and all the taboo topics of society (sex, money, death, power, control) is key right now. some of us are obsessed with these things and act out in them- others of us repress them. right relationship is the call right now and chiron is helping us to heal all that is ready to heal and be released! this unfolds over the last days of october and first of november- use the energy wisely!
at 11:28pm retrograde venus in scorpio squares nodes at the 1st degree of their respective signs- showing us that we have an opportunity to make a new start and head into new uncharted territory in relationships, finances, self worth and self Love. yes venus is still in the Underworld but she is showing us clearly what holds us back from greater abundance, self Love, connection with others and more. releasing karmic patterns/people/situations that no longer serve is recommended right now.
tuesday october 30th-
mercury at 29 scorpio opposes retrograde juno at 29 taurus at 5:59am, bringing into focus communications and information around relationships, commitments and financial partnerships. mercury is in the midst of a trine to chiron and quincunx to uranus- so what comes up/is revealed can be both healing and possibly sudden and unexpected! with the karmic 29th degree strong in the coming month- there are big things coming to completion right now. anything unresolved is up to be addressed! navigate endings and new beginnings with a lot of consciousness right now.
mercury moves out of scorpio and into sagittarius at 9:38pm, shifting the conscious mind and intellect from water to fire, yin to yang, depths to heights. mercury in sadge loves to travel, teach, learn, explore and expand! the mind wants to grow beyond it’s boundaries and limits! this is a great time for travel. just watch out for the shadow of mercury in sagittarius: thinking the grass is greener on the other side ;)
wednesday october 31st-
at 1:45am retrograde venus opposes retrograde uranus at the 1st degree of their respective signs, echoing the first aspect these two made on 9/12 when venus was in her front end shadow. this aspect occurs a total of 3 times due to venus’ retrograde journey- so this is a deep astrological signature we are woking with for 3 or so months. there are some VERY BIG CHANGES happening in relationships, relationship dynamics, masculine/feminine balance and relationship paradigms right now. venus opposite uranus in the sign of venus is creating upheaval, growth and change in our relationships, values, attachments and more. with the scorpio/taurus axis highlighted we are challenged to really take a hard look at what we hold onto out of fear for safety and security and/or what we let go of too soon out of fear of deep intimacy and vulnerability. a whole new value system and paradigm of partnership that is more aligned with radical evolution rather than fear based survival can be birthed and/or deepened right now!!! more on this in upcoming venus retrograde video blog posted soon!
mercury in sagittarius semisextiles retrograde venus in scorpio at 2:21am, aligning the mind and heart in helpful ways. this is a great day to have conversations and communications of both mind and heart. sharing our thoughts and feelings with others and even with ourselves is supported today. pay attention to the information, dreams or insights incoming.
mercury in sagittarius quincunxes retrograde uranus in taurus at 2:36am, creating tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the rebel and revolutionary. with both venus and mercury in tense aspect to uranus there are some big time changes happening in mind and in heart, in thoughts and feelings. with uranus some of these changes can seemingly come out of nowhere! staying open to change is recommended.
retrograde venus backtracks into libra at 12:42pm, bringing focus to our deep reevaluation of relationships and the balance of give and take, self and other in our lives. are we over focused on others at the expense of ourselves? or do we look to others to always focus on us and give to us? a healthier way of relating wants to be birthed right now but it requires that we take stock of what is unhealthy and really get to the root of these patterns (which can go back to childhood and past lifetimes). only a couple more weeks of venus in her Underworld journey- so make use of it and go deep!
at 1:21pm mercury in sagittarius trines the north node in leo at the 1st degree of leo- which can bring some important insights, aha moments, connections and alignments that have an evolutionary, destined feel to them! pay attention!
thursday november 1st-
at 10:36am jupiter in scorpio trines retrograde chiron in pisces, aligning the planet of expansion and abundance with the Wounded Healer planetoid. this is an EXCELLENT aspect for emotional, psychological and spiritual healing and growth. if we are committed to our inner work this astrology is ripe for transformation and evolution! jupiter is only in the depths of scorpio for one more week. linking with chiron opportunities for healing old wounds, clearing old karma and activating kundalini within the body are profound. make use of it!
retrograde chiron in pisces opposes pallas athena in virgo at 10:48am and jupiter sextile pallas at 11:02am, bringing an alignment between the Wounded Healer, the planet of expansion and growth and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. the jupiter/chiron trines triggers pallas today which can be amazing for seeing the Bigger Picture and healing around past wounding. pallas in virgo helps us be discerning about the patterns that urn us from behind the scenes. jupiter/chiron in water signs reminds us that the healing has to happen on an emotional and somatic level- not simply an intellectual one.
friday november 2nd-
jupiter in scorpio opposes retrograde juno in taurus at 5:48am, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. jupiter and juno are husband and wife in greek mythology and they have quite an interesting relationship if you look to their more modern patriarchal version of the myth. jupiter/zeus is constantly cheating on juno/hera and she is constantly depressed and angry at the women who philander with her husband but she very rarely points her anger towards jupiter. jupiter/juno can bring light to relationship dynamics and where things are imbalanced. juno values relationship in taurus but if she is avoiding facing the shadow things can come up and out to be addressed right now. juno is in the midst of being activated by uranus and chiron- healing is possible in relationships and relationship patterning but it could come by way of some shocking or unexpected developments or revelations in past and present partnerships.
retrograde venus in libra sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces at 5:17pm, creating tension between the lower and Higher Heart. both libra and pisces tend to focus on others and will sacrifice themselves. they both also have lessons around boundaries and playing the victim or martyr. being willing to see where we have been in denial, illusion or escapism is key right now!
retrograde venus in libra semisquares jupiter in scorpio at 6:22pm, creating tension between the two bodies that just want to have fun and enjoy life. venus/jupiter is great for being social and having fun but they can both tend to overdo it- overspend, overeat, overshare and more. balance is key!
saturday november 3rd-
mercury in sagittarius semisquares pluto in capricorn at 6:59am, bringing tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. mercury/pluto is great for penetrating talks, therapy, research and investigation. being willing to get deep and dig into the shadow is key. just watch out for power/control dynamics with others! forcing others to see your perspective is not a useful method today!
at 11:16am retrograde venus in libra quincunxes retrograde chiron in pisces for the 1st of 2 times this month and for the 2nd of 3 total times due to her retrograde journey (the first was 9/10). venus/chiron creates tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid- bringing up all our old wounds and pain around self-worth, self-Love and self-value. old patterns we keep playing out in relationship that are toxic and keep us stagnant or stuck are coming up to be faced right now. with both bodies in signs that tend to over focus on others there is a need to pay attention to boundaries and where we tend to play the victim/marytr OR where we turn to addiction, denial and avoidance rather than dealing with things head on. pay attention to what big wounds and pain are up for you right now. chiron teaches us that our wound is our gift and that the pain we fear to fully feel and move through is the very pain that will liberate us when we face it, feel it and move all the way through!
retrograde chiron in pisces sextiles retrograde juno in taurus at 1:51pm, aligning the Wounded Healer with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. healing is possible in relationships right now- partnership, marriage, business partnership, financial alliances and more. the key is in staying open to see what we hold onto and what need to let go of for healing to happen.
sunday november 4th-
daylight savings ends today! all noted times are now in PST.
mercury in sagittarius semisextiles saturn in capricorn at 8:01am, aligning the mind and intellect with the planet of mastery and maturity. this is a great aspect for having serious talks and focused communications with others. where mercury in sadge is fiery and expansive- saturn is grounding and realistic. blending the two together we can take our vision or Truth and ground it into reality today.
at 11:33am mars in aquarius sextiles retrograde eris in aries, aligning the will and drive with the Warrior Goddess! in roman mythology ares (aka mars) and eris are brother and sister- two powerful warrior dieties on the battlefield! link them together in positive ways and we can access the warrior within right now! mars in aquarius wants innovation, evolution and revolution! eris in aries wants to expose the shadow and face what has not been faced. we can work with this astrology in amazing ways right now to make positive changes in our lives!
pallas moves out of virgo and into libra at 5:27pm- shifting the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess from earth to air, body to mind. pallas in libra is focused on finding balance and harmony in her life and relationships. she is also focused on fairness, justice and equality. she has an energy like maat- the egyptian Goddess of Truth and harmony- always seeking the right balance of energies in life (chaos/harmony, dark/light, masculine/feminine). channeling pallas wisdom into finding the perfect balance in our lives is supported during her transit through libra.
retrograde uranus in taurus quincunxes pallas at the 1st degree of libra at 8:51pm, bringing tension between the planet of chaos and change and the Wisdom Goddess that wants the perfect balance in life. sudden, shocking and unexpected things coming to Light in relationships as well as politically are possible right now. stay open to seeing (and living) the Truth!
have a blessed week!
