Hello my dear friends - how are you?
I am finally able to crawl out from under
the aspects to write and I wanted to write
today, particularly as Mars conjuncts Pluto
in Capricorn (which by now is waning). Mars
is the planet of action and can inspire
impulsive or aggressive behavior as much
as it can inspire us to action of any kind.
When the modern ruler of Scorpio (Pluto)
gets in close with the traditional ruler
of Scorpio (Mars), well, you can see where
I am going with this. We may feel a very
strong need to act. We may have inflamed
emotions about things that are going on
(likely those things related to the recent
eclipse craziness of last month). This pair
is also squaring Uranus, who represent surprise,
change, invention and liberation, which
adds to the urgency and emotion - particularly
as change can be scary, but no change can
Before we throw out the baby with the bath
water, it may be helpful to talk to someone
and see if your rationale is logical or
largely emotional. The Sun and Venus are
travelling together and getting close to
Saturn. Asking for help and behaving responsibly
is likely your best course of action, as
well as self examination,. Don't get caught
in a power play just for power's sake. Take
the high road whenever possible.
On the plus side, there is great energy
for accomplishment and work projects. Many
of us are focused on the year end - ending
the year financially strong, getting ready
for the holidays, which will be distracting.
We have a golden window to accomplish much
between now and when the Sun enters Sagittarius
on Nov. 22nd, joining Venus, with Mercury
soon to follow.
I also want to mention that with the Sun
in Scorpio right now and so close to Venus,
many of us are extra focused on what other
people are doing. If Taurus represents what
I have and what I need to feel comfortable,
the other side of the wheel is what WE have
and what WE need to feel comfortable. Right
now there is a lot of YOU need to do xyz
so that I can feel comfortable. My dear
man has recently had surgery and I find
myself getting upset because he is not following
the doctor's instructions as I interpret
them, which would make me feel more comfortable.
I need to back off and say, "this is
his thing - I trust him to handle it properly."
I am seeing this theme in all manner of
relationships on all different level just
At times like this it can help for us to
sort of gather in our own scattered energy
and put things back into proper perspective.
We can not control others - we can only
control ourselves and sometimes, the answer
is to vote with our feet and just walk away.
We can come back to these people and situations
later, rather than wind up being a super
buttinsky and showing a lack of trust or
respect for the others involved.
Tuesday Nov.11th is a Circle day on Planetary
Calendar, indicating a great day to start
new things - anything, really, but with
the Cancer Moon, we might be leaning toward
family things. Next week Venus moves into
sociable Sagittarius on the 16th - another
Circle day on the calendar - but with the
Moon in detail oriented, mental Virgo, planning.
organizing and detailed work will be highlighted.
Hopefully that will off set the last week
of the Moon, which can often be a bit low
energy. Leonid Meteor Showers peak on Nov.
17 an 18 - look for the question mark shape
in the sky to find Leo. New Moon on the
22nd as the Sun enters Sagittarius and the
party starts rolling. The kids will be home
from school and the Holiday Season is officially
kicked off! December 1st, 11th, 16th and
the 26th are all Circle days, too - looking
forward to a joyous end of the year...but
I am sure to talk to you again before that.
