astrological "weather forecast" or
Forgive me friends, it has been more than
a month since my last email. August has
been so busy with a botched family vacation,
a possum infestation (7 removed from my
home in the last few weeks) the drama of
back to school (my youngest was very nervous
about promotion to middle school) and the
earthquake. We had no earthquake damage
- my folks in Napa had minimal damage, though
the town is surely worse for it.
Everywhere I look, I see people struggling
with the energy of the time. Dramatic upheaval
for some - several tragic deaths in our
local community and many in the world -
others seem to have an underlying tension
and a feeling of driving with the brakes
The big news on the astrology blogs has
been the Saturn Mars conjunction in Scorpio.
Mars suffered a long 9 months in Libra -
the planet of action has a hard time getting
anything done when in the sign of we and
balance...action slows as we are all sort
of working by committee. Mars finally gets
into his beloved sign of Scorpio (a sign
known for its intensity and murky depths)
only to find restrictive Saturn firmly entrenched
there. As Mars got closer to Saturn, that
driving with the brakes on feeling really
kicked in - mercifully, Mars has now passed
Saturn in the later degrees of Scorpio on
his way toward energetic and optimistic
Sagittarius, so the pressure should be easing
off. Mars enters Jupiter ruled Sag on September
13th and so we will begin to see some real
movement and even enlightenment as actions
are brought out into the open at that time.
Remember, too, that Jupiter is in early
Leo now - fire signs trine and Jupiter will
trine Mars in Sag as well as the Moon in
Aries on October 8th - (our next eclipse).
Jupiter in Leo has our hearts open and expanding,
but it also has our emotions high and exposed.
Facebook has become much more emotional
since Jupiter entered Leo on July 16h and
Mars entered Scorpio on July 25th, in my
circles, anyway. The passing of Robin Williams,
Gaza and Ferguson, MO seem to be super fueling
the emotionalism - but even the ice bucket
challenge seems to be inspiring more emotion
that is strictly necessary. Jupiter expands
- it makes mountains out of molehills as
well as bringing luck and abundance. We
need to learn how to keep an even keel at
such a time - we will get a full year to
work on this, while Jupiter is in Leo.
Remember, too, that Saturn is finishing
up his time in intense Scorpio so there
may be accelerated growth in that area and
with Mars there it is not very comfortable.
This is more an issue for people or areas
of our lives where we resist movement. Saturn
wants the rules followed - do the responsible
thing (not the emotional thing) for best
results. At least in this area, we can all
take heart - Saturn enters optimistic and
light hearted Sagittarius at the end of
this year (December 23rd), where he can
relax a bit.
Again we need to focus on our relationship
with ourselves, in order to care for ourselves
in such away that we can remain grounded
and centered to be able to cope with these
strong energies. With Pluto squaring Uranus
until 2016, this intensity will reoccur
and potentially get stronger as America
approaches its Pluto return. We are living
in interesting times and we are in training
to deal with that, while shedding our old
skins to cocreate something wonderful, hopefully.
Fortunately, the last week of the year seems
to herald a break from the tension in many
In the meantime, it is Virgo time! Time
for back to school, apple pie and thoughts
of Halloween! Time for the big Christmas
push to start - placing ads, starting sales,
etc. October will be...distracting, for
many. Eclipses on October 8th and 23rd will
shake up the playing field, so try to use
September to its fullest. No Circle days
in September, but no box days either. Mercury
in Virgo until September 1st - please start
projects that require a sharp, analytical
or computer focused mind before he moves
to Libra. You may want to plan a lovely
romantic or indulgent time while Venus is
still in Leo - she moves to Virgo on September
5th (when love becomes a bit more practical
and possibly critical). Don't let a picky
Venus in Virgo sabotage the good work you
have done in your relationships this year.
Sometimes it is best to say nothing if you
cannot say something nice.
If you are dealing with sadness, fear or
other negative emotions, due to the transits
or recent events, please consider Rescue
Remedy. This Bach Flower Remedy is inexpensive
and effective with dealing with trauma.
It seems everyone I talk to lately is dealing
with something that makes me recommend this
(thanks to a reminder from a good friend)
so I mention it to you. Wishing you all
the very best, my friends.
