***All times are EDT except for Sunday when we shift to EST***
Monday October 30th-
At 1:15am Mercury parallels Uranus- forming a Super Aspect between the lower mind and Higher Mind that will unfold today through Saturday when these two aspect each other by degree. A Super Aspect occurs when two bodies aspect each other by degree AND declinatio- which amplifies but also exacerbates their energy together. Watch out for restlessness, impulsivity and a tendency to speak without thinking. Uranus’ nature is to shock and destabilize- so pay attention to information, communications and thinking that serves this end. At the same time stay open to sudden illumination, change, shift, endings and new beginnings that can set your life path (or awareness) into new directions!
Tuesday October 31st-
Retrograde Uranus in Taurus quincunxes Pallas Athena in Libra at 3:55am, creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. Disruptive energies can play out politically, financially and in relationships. What is not being looked at is coming up and out. Where we have kept the peace so as to not really look at and address the shadow is up. As Pallas Athena heads to the Karmic South Node this weekend- we want to be super aware of what has been swept under the carpet and bring it up and out to be faced and addressed.
At 8:51am Venus in Virgo trines Retrograde Uranus in Taurus- aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. In relationships, finances, our self-worth and self-Love- we are being given great freedom, expansion and opportunities for growth! Grounding down into our Truth and getting more embodied is supported right now. Important relationships coming into your life or deepening right now can be very good for you! Allow the winds of change to carry you into new directions and let go of what no longer serves.
Wednesday November 1st-
At 11:45am Mercury in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Chiron in Aries- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. Both bodies are in Mars-ruled signs which can make for intense, conflict oriented or aggressive communication. Mercury in Scorpio wants to get to the Truth but the Chiron wounding around right use of anger and will can exacerbate tendencies to either stuff anger and be passive aggressive or overreact in anger and be dominating and emotionally violent. The potential for healing is possible if we bring a lot of consciousness to our words, thoughts and intentions right now. Pay attention to what is coming up in communication, thinking and information today. Keep in mind that from today through Thursday both Mercury and Mars quincunx Chiron- so there’s deep wounding and healing territory to navigate right now.
Thursday November 2nd-
At 3:42pm Venus in Virgo quincunxes the Mean North Node in Aries- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the North Node of Destiny and evolution. Venus in Virgo likes to be meticulous, perfect, reigned in and low key. The Aries North Node on the other hand demands fire, right use of anger, action and taking a stand. If we too busy looking for things to be perfect or peaceful we can miss the boat. From today through tomorrow Venus triggers the Eris/North Node conjunction. Tending to what is blocking you from taking action in life is key right now.
The Sun in Scorpio sesquiquadrates Retrograde Neptune in Pisces at 5:33pm- creating tension between Conscious Self and ego and the planet of idealism and illusion. Sun/Neptune can make it hard to see clearly, see the full Truth and see beyond the veil. As both are in water signs we want to pay attention to dreams and listen to our intuition- but we also want to have the capacity to discern fear and fantasy from true intuition (as the line between them can get easily blurred!). As we move to the 2nd of 3 Jupiter/Neptune semisquares on Sunday- be aware that not all is as it seems and make sure you are looking beneath the surface to get to the Truth.
At 9:52pm Vesta stations Retrograde at 7’30 Cancer- bringing the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus to a standstill. Vesta is devoted to home, family, emotions and compassion when in Cancer. Yet she is heading into the Underworld- so we are asked to discern are we overly devoted to OUR home and family but not extending that care to others? Do we think our own needs and emotions are valid but no one else’s is? Can we dive deeper and devote ourselves to emotional intimacy, shadow work, and care of the safety and security of all children and people, and the Earth itself? These are things to muse on today <3
Friday November 3rd-
At 1:02am the Sun in Scorpio opposes Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. The Sun/Jupiter opposition perfects the opposition between these two that showed up in the Lunar Eclipse Chart last week on Saturday October 28th. That Lunar Eclipse was conjunct Jupiter with the Sun, Mercury and Mars all in Scorpio opposite Jupiter. The exact Mercury/Mars oppositions to Jupiter occurred that same day of the Eclipse and now the Sun catches up. At best we can use the Jupiter energy to take chances, have confidence and courage. But the oppositional energy compounded by the recent eclipse can exacerbate the shadow of Jupiter which is hubris, self righteousness, aggrandizement over our beliefs being the ‘right ones’, and with the Taurus/Scorpio axis activated excesses and/or misuse of money or power is possible. As this aspect occurs in the very early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious. Also be sure to connect the dots between today and the Eclipse on 10/28 to see a Greater Story that is unfolding.
Venus in Virgo quincunxes Retrograde Eris in Aries at 3:58am- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Venus/Eris can bring upheaval and revelations in relationships, finances, our values and self-worth or self-Love. Seeing what is not whole or integrated helps us to see what shadow is playing out that needs to be addressed. Being in touch with our anger, passion, rage and desire in healthy and skillful ways is key right now. Don’t stuff it, don’t act out in it- but relate to it directly and see how it changes dynamics in your life!
At 6:06pm Venus in Virgo opposes Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- creating an opposition between the lower and Higher Hearts. Venus/Neptune is uber romantic, creative, mystical, idealistic and dreamy. In tense aspect these two can also be out to lunch, ungrounded, spiritual bypassing, fantasy based and not willing to see or deal with reality. It’s important that we balance Neptune’s compassion, forgiveness and desire to surrender with Virgo’s discernment, clarity, boundaries and commitment to being fully present to WHAT IS. Don’t check out- check IN!
Venus in Virgo sesquiquadrates Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus at 10:45pm- creating tension between the two Benefic planets. Both Benefics (seen as beneficial) are in earth signs- so there is focus on work, healthy, money, wealth and material things. The tense nature of the aspect exacerbates our desire for safety and security and thinking that comes from external things rather than working from the inside out. Today Venus triggers the Jupiter/Neptune semisquare that is exact on Sunday. Pay attention to where your desire for Love, Light, peace and/or pleasure is causing you to avoid or deny things that need to be tended to- personally and collectively.
Saturday November 4th-
At 3:03am Saturn stations Direct at 0’30 Pisces- bringing the Lord of Karma and Father of Time to a standstill in the sky. His presence is potent- putting focus on getting real so we can face and deal with reality on its own terms. Saturn is about boundaries and grounding but Pisces is about dissolving of boundaries and ideals and dreams. Saturn in Pisces can help us ground our dreams but he can also highlight where we need to come back to earth OR where we are fearful. Paying attention to what is arising today can give insight into where your own Saturn in Pisces lessons are showing you where your work lies. Also listen to the Weekly Horoscopes for more info on what this means for your sign <3
Mercury cojoins Ceres at 21’05 Scorpio at 6:47am- aligning the Mind and Intellect with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess.
Communications, thinking and information around home, family, mothers, children, safey and security can be incoming right now. From today through tomorrow both Mercury and Ceres oppose Uranus- bringing in some shocking, destabilizing and/or liberating and freeing insights. KEEP YOUR MIND OPEN!
At 12:07pm Mercury in Scorpio opposes Retrograde Uranus in Taurus- creating tension between the lower mind and the Higher Mind in sudden and unexpected ways! Mercury/Uranus can be revealing, liberating and freeing but it can also bring shocking and chaotic information, revelations, communications and more. Staying open to the Higher Mind frequency is key. Do not hold onto the old out of safety and security. The new wants to come in! Also be aware there is a ungrounded energy present today- so be extra conscious when driving and moving about in the world. As the Taurus/Scorpio axis is highlighted there can be some sudden and unexpected news or energy playing out around money, finances and security. Opening up to new ideas of how to make money or create wealth and abundance could be part of the process today!
Sunday November 5th-
At 12:48am Retrograde Uranus in Taurus opposes Ceres in Scorpio- creating tension between the planet of upheaval and chaos and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. This brings topsy turvy energies into home/family situations, with mothers or children, with money and resources and more. Safety and security issues are up- and there is an electric, sudden energy playing out from yesterday to today as both Mercury and Ceres align with Uranus. Pay attention to what you hear, think, say or receive as information right now. Stay open to change!
At 2am EDT we fall back an hour and shift from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time.
Mars in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Chiron in Aries at 3:44am- creating tension between the Will and Drive and the Wounded Healer planetoid. Both bodies are in Mars-ruled signs- bringing into focus anger, drive, rage, will, ego and selfishness OR self focus. Mars in Scorpio is deep and intense- and if he uses his depth wisely he is willing to face shadow and do the deep and profound work of self transformation. If he does not use this energy wisely he devolves into power/over power/under dynamics and operates from jealousy, possessiveness, control and distrust. Wounding around how we run our will and power can be up today. Do we stuff it, project it, act out in it? Healing is possible if we face what we have been running away from!
At 4:59am Pallas Athena cojoins the Mean South Node at 23’52 Libra- aligning the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess with the Karmic South Node. With the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess in Libra she seeks peace and collaboration but the shadow of the South Node is when we stay so stuck in the place of wanting peace at any cost that we sweep things under the carpet, ignore shadow and refuse to take action or take a stand. Too much neutrality can be a problem- so we want to make sure we are seeing ALL OF THE TRUTH and then seeing what needs to be done about the entire picture we see.
Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus semisquares Retrograde Neptune in Pisces at 4:03pm- making the 2nd of 3 semisquares between these two (the first was 7/22). Jupiter/Neptune creates tension between the two planets that govern spirituality, idealism and positivity. Both Jupiter and Neptune like to see the glass as half full and like to see the potential and positivity of the world around them. This can be a gift when balanced with seeing the shadow- but if it’s happening at the expense of seeing the shadow it becomes problematic. Jupiter in Taurus wants abundance, sensual experience and can over indulge- while Neptune in Pisces transcends so much it can be ungrounded and not really here. This transit can exacerbate our tendency to use physical or spiritual things to escape and not be here now. The healthy integration of these two expressed when we can be embodied and grounded (Jupiter in Taurus) and at the same time open to receive the inspiration and transcendental frequencies Neptune is bringing in. Just watch out for tendencies to escape, check out, turn to addictions or fantasies, and be easily deluded or deceived by the projection of Love and Light and surface manifestations of things. Particularly in the media- be aware of propaganda, misuse of information and omissions of Truth.
Have a blessed week…
