Today is a day to make changes. Yeah, it’s a day of traditions due to the holiday, but… Astrological energy fully supports change and healthy letting go.
Emotions were spent at the full moon. While we are still under the expansiveness of the full moon energy, there is a sense of relief. Chaos can be dialed back. If chaos still seems to be building up around you, simply take a step back for a moment and see from a higher perspective. This is always available to you, but is especially available now.
If you want something different, you must do something different. Allow the pioneering spirit of Sagittarius energy to assist you with making new and healthy choices.
Much love, much gratitude, and many blessings!
Happy Thanksgiving to folks in the US!
Wednesday’s full moon in Gemini shows some signs of potential accelerator + brake syndrome, thanks to interference from Saturn.
In Gemini, the moon can feel flighty, restless, filled with an explosion of ideas. Put pen to paper to channel this restlessness, jotting down the myriad of ideas surging through, but be fully prepared to work on them another day.
Exact at 2:44PM PST, the moon in Gemini faces off against Sun and Saturn teamed up in Sagittarius. The sun represents our vital force, and Saturn, nicknamed the Lord of Karma, creates boundaries. This isn’t all bad, Saturn wants us to get it right and not settle for less than what is our highest good. Saturn helps us creates the structures required for success.
Saturn is also challenging dreamy Neptune. Where Saturn places boundaries, Neptune dissolves them. Here Saturn wants us to get it right and Neptune wants us to think outside the box. This is fantastic energy for manifesting just the right thing, so have no fear. Saturn will be making a series of exact squares with Neptune from now until fall of 2016, so this is energy that we will get used to over the course of the next 10 months or so.
Best path forward: Consider Saturn your Life Coach, and get ready to reflect, revise and redirect. When it comes to your wildest dreams. If you have a number of goals you’ve been dreaming of, prioritize them, and focus on the one that will bring the best return on your investment.
Mercury and Saturn are at the same degree today. Feeling a bit tongue tied recently? I know I have been. Mercury represents things like communication, ideas, and travel, and Saturn energy is cold and constricting, and when the two team up like they are, you can feel it as tightness in your throat or a mind that feels a lot slower than usual.
Although moon will be full in Gemini tomorrow afternoon, it’s still in Taurus today which is quite different from Gemini. Gemini is fed by ideas, but Taurus prefers real food over food for thought. Treat yourself to some comfort food for lunch today.
Moon forms an easy trine with Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn today, all of these are earth signs, and while there is some wild and stirred up energy out there, this earth can keep us grounded if we choose it. Slow down and notice the details, be patient. The world around you may spin, but you can find that calm space with if you desire.
Remember the comfort food today, and if you haven’t already, begin a gratitude log to help you through the holidays. No need to shout it from the rooftops if you don’t feel like sharing, this is a tool for you. Take care of yourself.
We are coming to the end of sun in Scorpio time for this year, sun moves into Sagittarius this weekend.
When the sun, or any planet, changes signs, it can feel a little bit like Now is the time to act! We are ready to take action on healing and insights we’ve gathered up to this point. Scorpio energy is deep and intense, unafraid to peer through the darkness and get to the bottom of things. Sagittarius energy is brighter, more expansive, and more open.
At a class this week, one of my teachers asked if anyone was getting excited for Sagittarius, and it reminded me of how some ask if you’re getting excited for the holidays. Sagittarius feels more like the twinkly lights, songs and good cheer that we find all around us at the end of the year. This doesn’t mean that we can’t still be inward and reflective, but it does mean that the energy around us will no longer match deep and reflective as much.
Spend some time and get clear on any loose ends that you feel called to tie up at the end of sun in Scorpio season in order to make space to be fully present for Sagittarius season.
Does it feel like your hopes and dreams are about to get some traction? Does it feel like something awesome is just around the corner? I do, and it feels exciting!
Neptune, the planet of dreams and inspiration is getting ready to turn direct in Pisces tomorrow.
Also, sun and Mercury are cozy, lighting up the things that Mercury rules – ideas, communication, travel…
The Scorpio New Moon window is open and will be exact on November 11 at 9:47 AM PST. With sun and moon paired in Scorpio, we are deep in the waters of healing. Keywords for Scorpio are: resourceful, secretive, passionate, intense, and transformational.
This year has been challenging and for many. Over and over again, the universe turned us away from what we had had our eye on and toward something that much better, even if it didn’t feel right to begin with. While it may be difficult and painful to look our shadow selves in the eye, it is also deeply healing. While the moon is in Scorpio, we can expect emotions to run high, be intense, and fall on any point along the spectrum. One of the symbols for Scorpio is the Phoenix, and in order to rise, the Phoenix must burn. In order to be reborn, we must die to our old selves and what we believed we were yesterday. Scorpio asks us to open our eyes and see.
What have you been holding onto? What have you been running from? What is it that you really need, deep down at the pit and core of your soul? That is what this moon is asking us to get in touch with, and nothing less than this will do. Awareness is the first step; once we are aware of something, the shift begins to happen.
Sun and moon form harmonious aspects to Neptune – allowing us deep access to and within the dreamtime, Chiron – allowing us to see our deepest wounds, to Pluto, which pushes us beyond what we thought possible, and Jupiter – which expands our psychic visions and ability to heal. All of these support those doing deep personal work.
This is the time of the final harvest and the time that we prepare our fields for next year’s plantings. All around us, the leaves are falling and life is slowing down after the vibrant bustle of summer. As we approach the end of the calendar year, the natural tendency is to reflect on our personal journey through the previous 12 months. Scorpio asks us to savor all of the moments, for all moments contain gifts and the seeds of our growth and transformation. This is the time to prepare the fields within our hearts for next year’s growing time.
