I wrote a new blog on my other page…please check it out and dont forget to follow!
It is said that the full moon in October sets the energetic precedence for the next year. Our last full moon was actually a blue moon with intense energy and it was in the zodiac sign of Taurus. One thing that many fail to research when studying astrology or their own planetary signs is to not look at that polarity of the sign – meaning the opposite of said sign.
When we have a full moon it is opposite the sun, meaning whatever the astrological sign the sun is in the full moon is in the opposite sign. And for the blue moon in October, the sun was in Scorpio and the moon was in Taurus – which are opposites.
While Taurus represents the earth element, Scorpio is water. So the transition energy you get from Scorpio can be grounded in Taurus and can be quite humbling. Scorpio represents change, transition, and transmutation; Taurus is a stable energy and help us keep the calm in the middle of the chaos in our core. Scorpio represents the Underworld as it’s planet is Pluto. While we have the sun, (whose zodiac sign is Leo) representing the self, walking through the Underworld we can expect to have big changes within our lives as well as being forced in front of a mirror and having to work through our inner turmoil or commonly called self inventory.
As we are seeing all of this chaotic energy in our world today, it would appear that the Earth is really feeling this Underworld energy. Transitional energy is in the air, but as we are seeing in our world it is unfocused which sends it out in all sorts of crazy directions. The frustrating thing for those of us that actually work with this energy and see the playing out of energies is that there are others who fail to see or even think astrology is just a new age mumbo-jumbo that isn’t relevant. And people can think what they want, but so far astrology has really energetically aligned with what is going on Earth.
As I was re-reading through one of Barbara Hand Clow’s books, Liquid Light of Sex, I came across a paragraph that hits on this polarity energy – and to me shed some light on this energy. “The second polarity turns around the issues of grounding and emptying. Am I stuck in a house in the midst of a fifteen-year accumulation of possessions and feeling like I can never leave? Or, have I so let go of things I need for living that I am not grounded? Resolution” higher ethical sensitivity. Take for yourself what you really need from the Earth and enjoy all your pleasures. Let go of every single thing in your life that is not frequently needed or used. Teaching: the Native American saying ‘The Earth is your Mother and she freely offers to you all that you need.'”.
As I have stated in my past shows, we are at an apex in our world right now. As with all change comes fear that things will be worse than they are now, but this is when it is important to focus our energy so we can active create instead of tossing the dice and seeing what we get. Remember, the more people focusing on one energetic impression the greater the chances for the result you are seeking. With Pluto and Saturn still hanging out in Capricorn, we will probably keep seeing dirty laundry aired from our governments and other institutions of power. Many fear change and I feel that it is because they have not yet master the process of it. Unfortunately, this is one of many things that were taken away from us about 2000 years ago. We are in the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius and this age is about future thinking, its technology, its forward thinking and wanting to take things to the next higher level. As I write this, the moon is in Cancer but it is still opposite Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto that are in Capricorn. So while all of these governments and institutions are being turned upside down, it would behoove them to listen to the out cries of the people and work at bringing comfort back to the people they are supposed to represent. Venus and Mercury are in Libra which is really aiding in the energy for clarity and balancing out the energy….as well as fairness. Lady Liberty will not rest until the unjust has been made just and harmony for the people reigns.
Mars is still in Aries retrograde, so we can see that there is a blockage in the forward moving of the energy. It may help us to remember our dreams from the past, or the wishful dreams of a nation to us to be able to go forward harmoniously. I’m not talking about the Utopian pipe-dream, I am talking about meeting middle ground.
Some food for thought!
Happy, happy birthday to all you Scorpions out there!
I wrote this a year or so ago and I tell ya it just speaks to me. Watching how energy is playing out here, as well as in the heavens is fantastic. I want to share this with you as I feel it really sheds light on things.
We are in Scorpio energy, and Samhain- All Hallow’s Eve…our last harvest, has passed us, as well as that powerful Taurus Blue Full Moon. I wanted to talk about what this energy is about and explain why some of you are going through what you are going through. One of my favorites, Hades, Lord of the Underworld as I always feel like he gets a bad wrap.
Scorpio – Pluto/Hades and the Underworld
What do those three things have in common…..transition baby!
When this energy is released, it releases unleashed, intense energy that causes life changing energy. Scorpio is associated with spiritual changes, self development and ‘political power’. This energy is all about transformation, rebirth and regeneration and this includes all areas of our lives. On the downside, when this energy is used in a negative way it is the abuse of power, destructive….self serving. On a good note, this energy can have the ability to discern the truth. So given this time, especially with all that is going on in the world, this energy is definitely showing itself. Many times we have to be pulled by our hair kicking and screaming, then to only realize that the transformation as well worth it. Scorpio’s planet is Pluto, Lord of the UnderWorld which takes the energy deeper into the watery depths. Here we are guided deep down into our soul as it dredges up our old thought patterns/belief systems and attitudes/thoughts. This Lord makes us face them head on, analyzing and then transform them into something new…rebirth. The seat of our consciousness is pulled, so those things that we thought were buried deep down, our old baggage, we are forced to transform this old into something newer and better. Here we are being taught alchemy…taking one thing and making it into another. Many have mixed feelings regarding Lord Pluto, they fear him as he normally throws us out of our comfort zones and into new territory. This intense Lord is actually our ally, as he teaches us the importance of our inner work to step into our highest potential.
One of my favorite poets/authors is Rumi and a favorite quote of mine, something that touches the root of my being is;
“ The wound is the place where the light enters you”.
This is simply saying, that only until you fully go into that darkness (your fears) full healing will take place. Pluto is all about digging deep into the soul to pull out old beliefs, thought systems and attitudes. He asks us to live through them, analyze them and then kill them off in order to birth them into something new. Please note, that many times these transformations are happening emotionally or spiritually…but can lead to physical changes as well. Lord Pluto asks you “where are you” “where are you going/want to go” , unlocking deep secrets within you. So how is this helpful to you? Have you been in a place where you felt stuck? Are you in a relationship that you keep questioning? How about wanting to find a different job, or figure out what job you actually want? Who are you? Stuck? Lord Pluto, brings us these hidden jewels within us to help us get past the questions. You see, many times you are stuck because you are blocking yourself from expanding…and energy loves to move and expand. Energy is in constant change, it is constantly evolving into this and then that…it likes to expand. So if you feeling stuck, why? What is keeping you from moving/growing past this point? Is it insecurity? Normally, it is some feeling/form of inadequacy inside us. He challenges us to move past, pushing ourselves to places we’ve never been…..he tells us that if we truly want better, we in fact have to do the work to get it. This is a time that our buttons are pushed as well, as he loves to show you your closet full of skeletons. Maybe this is why I love Scorpio/Pluto energy, it challenges you to take those things that no longer serve you and transform them into something that does. Destroy the old, to create the new and better.
I am sure you all know the story of Persephone and Hades, and how it is emphasized that she was kidnapped and forced…but what if she looks forward to spending time with Hades? What if, while she is fertilizing the earth, she misses her beloved? Read about Inanna’s journey through the underworld as well. Maybe it would serve us to shift our perception, see deeper into things. Remembering that we cant control everything, and we must go with the flow. Many years I was told through the New Age teachings that the light is the way the light is the way the only way….but what about the darkness, the underworld. This is where we go to heal. The dark is where all life begins. It would really behoove us to see things, not for how it appears on the surface, but for what lies beneath. Challenge yourself to read between the lines, search for that hidden knowledge.
Happy Sagittarius Full Moon to you all. This is a Lunar eclipse so things could be ending while new ones begin. You could also begin doing something you never thought you could or would do.
A full moon is square from the sun, so it illuminates the hidden. Jupiter, Sagittarius’s planet, is retrograde grade so the energy will be one of us looking in the mirror and seeing where we have been just too much. With this influence, we could be learning some deep truths about ourselves, how relate to ourselves, and other truths coming out.
Mars and Neptune, hanging out in Pisces, is forming a square with this full moon and the Sun. This energy can ignite us on a new path, helping us go after our goals, and we can really be inspired by our dreams – both what we want to create and while we sleep. Pay attention to your dreams the next few days, journaling them is always a good idea.
Be careful here as you will really need to use you Intuition and use your common sense/intelligence because Neptune can bring us illusions and distractions so it will be very important to stay conscious and focused.
Saturn is still retrograde in Aquarius and this is actually helping the energy by taking some pressure off of us. This is a perfect time to examine your challenges, reassess them, and come up with a plan to get through them. Some may feel like they’re out of touch and having a hard time grounding during this time and could feel like their life has been uprooted a bit. Interestingly, Saturn is connected to society as well as government and this energy influences changes in those areas. Strategy will be the key to success.
Venus is retrograde in Gemini and this influences our relationships. If you are having problems in your relationship, now is a good time to work them out. Communication within all relationships is really heightened and this can touch on our emotions so this could cause friction, maybe something that is brought up from the past that is still lingering. Gemini energy is our chatty-Kathy so this is good energy to get to know others. You can be more willing to be open to new relationships. Venus touches on money as well, so you could have a financial opportunity make itself known to you.
Eclipses bring change, and with lunar eclipses it touches our emotions and those things we are attached to. Change can be scary because of the unknown, but that is our only constant. Always remember that endings do bring new beginnings. Pluto is retrograde and still in Capricorn. The Lord of the Underworld destroys in order to create better.
The year 2020 started out with an eclipse and a rare conjunction with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, and remember we are in the beginning Age of Aquarius so they’re will be a breaking down of certain things and will help us create better for the years to come.
Today the Moon is in Aries and it is in a conjunction (same degrees) with Lilith. With this placement and Venus retrograde in Gemini, emotions could be really high and very assertive- drastic. Luckily Mars is in Pisces offering some calmness but we really shouldn’t hold back on our feelings. There could be circumstances that may trigger some old wounds, you need to pay attention.
Lilith is the wounded feminine, and in Aries she wants what she wants when she wants it and is highly passionate. Sometimes we need to understand that proper communication needs to take place in order for our needs to be met.
Today is a 9 which is about completion as well as earthly lessons, coming full circle. Listen to your Intuition. The number 9 is a mystical number as well, so pay attention to what is going on around you. It is also about selflessness and service, but be sure not to sacrifice yourself – especially for the wrong cause.
