***all times are PDT***
monday october 27th-
the first aspect of the day and week is exact at 4:02am when mercury, now direct, in libra contraparallels juno in leo- creating an energetic opposition between the conscious mind and intellect and the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. juno features prominently this week- throughout the week she is involved with mercury, venus, uranus and the sun (in that order)- so issues around relationship, commitment and contractural arrangements are up big time. with mercury energetically opposite juno- the focus is on communicating our needs and desires with others. juno in leo tends to be very self-focused, while mercury in libra is attempting to find balance between opposing needs. finding win/win situations are recommended- but it’s also good to know when win/win is not possible and when walking away is the best, and healthiest, option. keep that in mind this week!
venus in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 11:48am, harmoniously aligning the lower heart with with the Higher Heart in compassionate and inspirational ways. venus/neptune can be uber-romantic, but it’s also great for creativity and artistic expression, as well as spiritual and mystical pursuits. between today and tomorrow there is a distinct neptune vibe (both venus and the sun aspect neptune in the next 24 hours)- which makes the veil between the worlds thin and enhances intuition, dreams, psychic abilities and synchronicities. enjoying life and sharing the Love are recommended today and tomorrow!
at 3:04pm ceres moves out of deep, intense and passion scorpio and into fiery, expansive and optimistic sagittarius- bringing a palpable shift of energies to the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. where ceres in scorpio was going down and in- ceres in sadge goes up and out! ceres in sadge feels nurtured by being given freedom to roam, travel, learn, explore and find one’s own Truth. when dealing with children during this cycle- they will thrive more when given less restrictions and more faith in their abilities. when it comes to our nurturance and nourishment- we would all benefit from some adventure, exploration and Higher Mind activities in the coming couple of months (until she moves into capricorn in january 2015).
tuesday october 28th-
the sun in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 2:49am, harmoniously aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of mysticism, creativity and romance. it’s a lovely day for Divine inspiration, compassion, service and seeing the Bigger Picture at play in your life. artistic expression, intuition, dreams and fantasies are well starred. the key is to balance this transcendent energy with grounding and mastery- as that is the only way you will be able to materialize the inspiration you receive today!
wednesday october 29th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in earthy, pragmatic, responsible capricorn all day long. the moon squares uranus and mercury in the morning- triggering the mercury/uranus opposition that was exact last weekend when mercury stationed direct. this brings focus to what we think and what we feel and how we are (or are not) integrating the two. the moon sextiles saturn, the ruler of the moon, just after 8pm and then goes void of course for 11 hours- until tomorrow morning. the decidedly anchored, grounded vibe helps us show up and be accountable for whatever needs to be dealt with in our lives tonight!
thursday october 30th-
at 3:34pm venus in scorpio squares juno in leo, creating tension and friction between the Goddess who wants beauty, Love and pleasure and the asteroid Goddess who wants commitment and security. in greek mythology venus and juno were polar opposites. venus constantly cheated on her husband hephaesteus- as she was interested in pleasure and fun and no limitations. juno, on the other hand, was a very loyal to her husband zeus (who cheater on HER all the time) as she valued companionship and partnership more. when these two are in square our basic needs and desires can be at odds with each other. venus in scorpio wants sex, pleasure, intimacy and passion- while juno in leo wants to be seen, loved, adored and made to feel special. when these opposing needs are made conscious and worked with from a conscious place, the potential to be in relationships (with others, with ourselves) is supported. yet when one or the other gets projected, neglected or ignored- then we can run into issues. in relationships of all kinds- bringing our needs and desires to the table is key. we can only get from others what we are willing to give AND willing to admit to wanting/needing/desiring!
at 6:32pm retrograde uranus in aries parallels juno in leo, aligning the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener with the asteroid Goddess of partnership, marriage and commitment. uranus brings sudden shifts, changes and wake up calls in relationships of all kinds- so stay open to seeing what you could not see and stay open to moving into new directions, some of which may require a letting go of people/things/attachments to the past.
mercury cojoins the north node in libra at 6:56pm for the 3rd and final time (the other two were on 9/16 and 10/20). thinking back to mid september and mid october can bring some aha moments and insights about your own path of growth, evolution and destiny. it’s a great day to pay attention to all communication, conversation, revelation and information that is incoming. important connections can come into our lives that have the potential to help us grow beyond our previous boundaries. with both bodies in libra- relationships, compromise and collaboration are necessary for our growth right now.
friday october 31st-
happy samhain/halloween! there are no major aspects today. the moon is in eclectic, eccentric, visionary aquarius all day long. the moon connects with revolutionary uranus (the ruler of the moon), mental mercury and expansive jupiter throughout the day- bringing expansive, expressive and positive emotions! the night ends with the moon squaring saturn just before midnight and then the moon goes void of course for 10 hours- so if you feel a bit low energy in the evening, the best thing to do is drop off into a deep sleep and process and release anything you may be holding onto.
saturday november 1st-
at 5:44am mercury in libra sextiles jupiter in leo, harmoniously aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of expansion, abundance and luck! mercury/jupiter wants to communicate, learn, teach, explore and see the world! with mercury now direct- we can take all the insights and aha moments we had in the past few weeks and put them into practical application in ways that expand our wisdom or understanding of Truth in our lives. it’s a great day to have faith and Trust that the Universe will guide you to where you need to be!
at 4:09pm venus in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn, harmoniously aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the planet of passion, intensity and shadow. venus is in pluto’s sign- so the venus/pluto aspect gives a double dose of underwordly, transformative, intense energy in Love, relationships and financial situations. this is a great aspect for generating a deeper sense of worth and inner abundance that can then transform into outer abundance! relationships can go deep right now as well. passion and sexuality can be intense- or transformative. dive down deep to know your own Soul!
at 4:43pm mars in capricorn sextiles retrograde neptune in pisces, aligning the will, warrior and drive with the planet of mysticism and creativity. mars in capricorn is very focused, hardworking and disciplined- so his alignment with creative, idealistic, mystical neptune can actually help us to bridge the material and spiritual worlds in grounded ways. the best use of mars/neptune is to focus our energy, will and drive on spiritual, creative, compassionate and altruistic endeavors. become the spiritual warrior- and take a stand for what you believe in!
at 6:46pm the sun in scorpio squares juno in leo, echoing the venus/juno square that was exact on thursday. the push pull between wanting to be seen (leo) and wanting to be secretive (scorpio), wanting to be on stage (leo) and wanting to be the power behind the stage (scorpio) is up right now. issues in relationships, commitments and contractual agreements in our lives can be up for addressing. steer clear of scorpio’s manipulation and tap into his deep reservoirs of transformation and regeneration capacity. if it looks like something cannot be transformed or regenerated- be willing to let it go.
sunday november 2nd-
daylight savings time ends at 2am today- so be sure to change your clocks!
the only aspect today is a parallel between the sun and venus in scorpio which is exact at 10:51pm. this harkens back to last week when the sun and venus aligned by degree (on saturday the 25th). with both the sun and venus at the same declination and separating from the same degree- we have the sun/venus energy amplified all week long. this is a lovely energy for focusing on relationships and getting clear on what your own heart needs and desires. because venus’ conjunction with the sun actually means she is invisible to us on earth- she is in the underworld right now and is releasing all that does not serve her. with both bodies in scorpio- releasing karmic residue and karmic patterns that no longer serve us in relationships, finances, our values or self-worth is key.
have a lovely week…
