monday october 31st-
at 5:51am the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between conscious self and ego and the planet of idealism and illusion. today the sun makes this aspect and on thursday mercury does- which 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!).
***all week long we have 7 sesquiquadrate aspects between the scorpio planets (sun, mercury, venus) and the mars/neptune square (also wider mars/jupiter square). WOW! a sesquiquadrate is a 135 degree aspect- also known as a sesquisquare and/or a square and a half (90 + 45). the square aspect and the semisquare aspect are both considered ‘tense’ and with scorpio planets that want to delve into the shadow and see what is hidden aspecting the mars/neptune square that makes illusion, delusion, deception and escapism strong- we want to navigate the ENTIRE WEEK with lots of consciousness. be willing to question things- most importantly your own dearly held beliefs and dogmas. not all is as it seems and we have to pull back the veil to see the Truth! just being on the surface or preferring to see things from the “All Love & Light’ perspective can bite us in the butt. dive deep, be willing to see/face shadow and be open to the Truth. as they say- the Truth will set you free but first it might piss you off! being able to be with our deeper emotions of anger/rage and grief/sorrow is going to be key this week- as sometimes truth will take us into the heart of both/either. if we cannot handle these emotions within ourselves we will shut down our ability to see the Truth because it will stir up too much for us to handle. shadow work practices you have on tap will be extra useful this week!
ceres in virgo trines the mean north node in taurus and sexitles the south node in scorpio at 1:13pm, linking the Great Mother asteroid Goddess with the nodes of destiny and karma. we can have destined and fated things happening in home/family dynamics, with mothers/children, around the food supply and earth’s resources, the environment and more. ceres in virgo is highlighting the details and things we need to see clearly in order to heal around the past/deal with shadow (south node in scorpio) and evolve and move forward (north node). themes around money, resource, health and nourishment should be paid attention to today.
at 2:55pm venus in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde mars in gemini, creating tension between the Divine Lovers in signs that are really opposed to each other. venus is in one of the signs of mars and in scorpio she wants depth, passion, Truth and intensity. mars, on the other hand, is in a light hearted sign that prefers the surface and gets bored and moves on quickly ;) there can be differences in needs and desires in romantic relationships but also in our own inner relationship with masculine and feminine within. finding the capacity to honor the depths/shadow while not being paranoid and obsessed with it- and also finding the ability to go beyond the surface to get to the Truth- is key today/this week/this month/this year!!!
tuesday november 1st-
there are no major aspects today.
wednesday november 2nd-
at 5:22am pallas athena cojoins mean black moon lilith at 22’28 cancer, aligning the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess with the fierce Dark Feminine. with both Goddess energies in the sign of the moon- emotions, feelings, mothering and nurturing are in focus. pallas is very intuitive and empathic in cancer- she sees the bigger picture through her watery psychic senses. lilith on the other hand is focused on what is in the shadows emotionally and in regards to home, family, women and children. put these two together and we can see clearly what is going on that is hidden- but we can also react emotionally to what we see. later in the week neptune trines both of them so all week long the psychic, intuitive and mystical awarenesses are WIDE OPEN. the key is trusting what comes in and giving yourself time to drop in to hear the messages incoming. powerful feminine energy is available to tap into this week!
venus in scorpio quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries at 1:13pm- creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron brings 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 stagnant or stuck are coming up to be faced right now. with both bodies in mars-ruled signs there is also deep activation of wounding around anger and rage. do you tend to stuff it and internalize it so it comes out as depression, illness or apathy? do you tend to act out in in aggressive, combative ways. healthy relationship to anger and rage is key right now (a great book recommendation is ‘the anatomy and evolution of anger’ and ‘emotional intimacy’ by robert masters). 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!
at 7:07pm venus in scorpio cojoins the mean south node at 13’19 scorpio, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the south node of karma. this is the first of 3 south node conjunctions this week (we have sun on the south node this saturday, mercury on sunday). as we just had a solar eclipse on the south node and we are moving towards a total lunar eclipse on the north node- the nodes of destiny and karma are massively triggered right now. with the south node conjunctions we are being shown VERY CLEARLY what is toxic, stagnant, stuck, karmic and old paradigm. this could be personal and emotional, it is also collective. what is in the shadows we do not want to look at? what are we staying stuck in out of default that holds us back from the growth and evolution we seek? this eclipse cycle will brings some big reveals!!! pay attention today and all week to what the Universe is clearly showing us we need to let go of.
the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde mars in gemini at 7:40pm, creating tension between the two yang masculine planets. the sun triggered the mars/neptune square from monday to today (and we also have venus and mercury doing the same all week!). mars square neptune is a signature of the mars retrograde we are in- and it’s a big one that reminds us not all is as it seems. information, communications, thoughts and mental ideas all need to be questioned and looked more deeply into. it’s easy to be deluded and deceived- or to be the one being dishonest- so make sure you are using discernment and being honest in your dealings this week. luckily all the scorpio planets help us plumb the depths to get to the Truth!
thursday november 3rd-
at 9:32am mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, beginning mercury’s trigger of the mars/neptune square that lasts until tomorrow. mercury/neptune reminds us that not all is as it seems. pull back the veil to get to the Truth. intuition needs to be discerned from fear or fantasy. what is behind the things you believe or say, or hear and receive from others? dive deep!
venus in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde jupiter at 29 pisces at 5:15pm, creating tension between the two Benefic planets. a tense aspect between venus and jupiter can see us overdoing things- too much spending, eating, partying, emoting and more. we want to find the right balance between feeling our emotions and having fun- with healthy boundaries on both. we can feel uber empathic right now (lots of water!) just make sure you are not using food/substances/people to check out for emotional overwhelm. balance is key.
at 7:31pm retrograde neptune in pisces trines pallas athena in cancer, linking the planet of mysticism and dreams with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. with both bodies in water signs the intuitive, psychic and spiritual energy is HIGH right now. imagination, creativity, empathy and compassion are expanded tenfold! make sure you give yourself downtime to retreat, dream and receive the subtle messages and inspiration incoming today.
friday november 4th-
at 10:01pm mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde mars in gemini, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the God of war. communications can be intense tonight- and with mercury finishing up his trigger of the mars/neptune square we want to make sure we are seeing/speaking the FULL TRUTH. not all is as it seems and there is much going on behind the scenes. research and investigate to get the full Truth- without being paranoid ;)
saturday november 5th-
at 4:57am the sun in scorpio quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries- creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer. old wounds and pain around our sense of self, identity, individuality and more can arise right now. both bodies are in mars ruled signs- which are primal, powerful and forceful. chiron can be showing us where we overdo the yang/masculine energy in combative, selfish ways OR where we hold ourselves back from taking action and doing what we need to do in life. tune into where you are being challenged to grow and get to it!
the sun in scorpio cojoins the mean south node at 13’11 scorpio at 11:22am, linking the conscious self and ego with the node of karma and the past. the is the 2nd south node conjunction this week- which is showing us very clearly what is toxic, stagnant, stuck, in the shadows and needs to be seen/addressed/release in order to move forward. all week long insights into who/what/where we have to LET GO OF are incoming- pay attention!
at 4:23pm retrograde neptune in pisces trines mean black moon lilith in cancer, linking the Higher Heart with the Fierce Dark Feminine. we had pallas and lilith conjunct early in the week and then the last couple of days neptune trined both- amplifying the intuitive, psychic and spiritual energy present. we have greater capacity for intuition, downloads and dreams that show us the Truth and help us get to the heart of matters. pay attention!
venus in scorpio opposes retrograde uranus in taurus at 6:22pm- creating an oppositional energy between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the planet of upheaval and chaos. 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!!!
sunday november 6th-
***today times changes from daylight savings to standard time***
at 9:34am 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.
the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde jupiter at 29 pisces at 1:09pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. too much of a good thing can really be too much- so watch out for over doing, over spending, over Love and Lighting ;) we want to balance shadow and Light, below and above, reality and possibility right now.
at 1:20pm mercury in scorpio cojoins mean south node 13’07 scorpio, aligning the mind and intellect with the node of karma and the past. messages, information and communications incoming are shining a Light on the past and what is karmic, toxic, stagnant or stuck. PAY ATTENTION. research, investigation and getting to the Truth are supported- just watch out for staying stuck in the shadow or past as a way of avoiding growth, change and moving into the future.
