Sun Transit through Scorpio

scorpio sun

The Sun will make it’s transit through the Scorpio constellation from October 23rd till November 21st, according to the Tropical astrology.  The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”.  Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feelings.  Scorpio is penetrating, transformative and unstoppable.  Mediocrity does not satisfy neither.  Scorpio’s energy is provocative, usually in a quiet, as well as passionate, strong-willed and intense way.  It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.

In Libra, we strive for equality and fairness.  In Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn’t fair.  Jealousy, secrecy, beating a dead horse, and manipulation are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.  Scorpio can be rigid, stubborn, and have an unyielding point of view.

Scorpio represents the toxic waters.  All of that suppressed stuff and emotions we shove away deeply that we don’t want to deal with.  Scorpio’s energy is not only represented by the scorpion but also by the phoenix, death and rebirth through dismemberment and remembering.  It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.

scorpio scorpionHalloween takes place under the influence of Scorpio and that’s no coincidence.  We all adopt the scorpion’s intensity during this time.  As the days grow shorter and Autumn fades into winter in the Northern hemisphere, the natural world begins to decay–a reminder of our own mortality that awakens our curiosity about the meaning of life and its many realms.

Scorpio energy brings intensity and mystery.  You may be drawn to searching the darkest regions of the Universe to bring all the hidden mystical and mysterious knowledge into the bright light of the day.  This energy has a magnetic pull at this time of the year– all you have to do is tune into it.

The sign Scorpio brings highly perceptual psychic abilities.  Scorpio’s energy is good for cutting through the “BS” and getting to look at things for what they really are. Superficially simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio.  We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters.  All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed, interests us, because normally it is considered socially unacceptable or that you may be rejected by a type of behavior.

scorpio risenYou should be able to utilize some key motivators centered on ambition while Scorpio rules.  Position and power may be yours for the taking if you shoot for the stars.  If you really set your mind on what you want and passionately commit to your endeavors, you’ll be supported.  It’s about believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of greatness.

One of Scorpio’s symbol is the Eagle,  which represents intelligence and clear visions, so you may want to pay attention to your “visions” or dreams this month.  Keeping a dream journal may be enlightening, especially if you’re looking for some specific answers.    Visions don’t necessarily have to occur at night, you can also get sudden flashes of insight during your waking hours, if you’re looking for them.

Scorpio’s energy is passionate, dynamic, and observant.  You may find that this vibration seeps into your bones and makes you feel more powerful then any other time of the year.  There are lessons to be learned on how to live your life the rest of the year.  Use the time while the Sun is in Scorpio to access your sensual side.  This isn’t necessarily about sex, but rather experiencing the sensuous feelings that mean you’re truly alive.  Turn everything you do into an opportunity to be passionate and intense about life.

Sun transit through Gemini

sun in gemini

According to the Tropical astrology the sign Gemini is exalted from May 21st through June 21st. Gemini’s key phrase is “I think”. It is an air sign, occurring at the end of the season making it mutable.   A mutable sign occurs at the end of the season as the energies begin to shift into the new season making them more adaptable, sharp, resourceful, and flexible.   Gemini is the “quick communicator”.    Gemini’s key words are:  clever, versatile, inquisitive, charming, mental, witty, restless, adaptable, sociable, expressive, and fun.  It’s ruing planet is Mercury.

Gemini is a curious and intellectual sign.  Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. People take up interests that spark new ideas.  It encourages reading and studying.  Attitudes become inquisitive, clever, interested in “novelty”, and are willing to try something new just for the heck of it. We are more open to talking things over and sharing new ideas during this time.  Communication of all sorts seems to become effortless, instinctive, and enjoyable.  Gemini energy turns our attention to social networking, recovering friendships, and becoming extroverted.

Air signs are communicative and intellectual.  They like to weigh their options out and reason things out.  Gemini’s planetary ruler Mercury rules the mental body, style of thinking and all sorts of communication, including computers and telephones.  It influences our thoughts, connections, writing, and logic.  Mercury also has an effect on the nervous system.

Gemini constantly curates new ideas so existing facts can be compared and, if necessary, tossed aside. You may need an update in your ideas and this might become challenged by someone else’s opinion.  The trick is to not get upset because Gemini’s duality insists that there are two sides to every story, and no truth is sacred (for now).  It brings a keen skepticism motivated by our need to know the truth.  Use this energy to create new friendships, and open ourselves to truthful relationships and connections with the people in our lives now.  Learn to respect other people’s ways and points of view.

The shadow side to this energy is that we can become restless and scatter our energies around to a multiple things as a result of our curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.  Watch for idle gossip. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings. Watch out or becoming close-minded, opinionated, and nervous, ad your ideas becoming too scattered or insincere.   Also beware of saying one thing but then doing another…be mindful of that in people as well.  Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini.  If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as exercising, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy.  You might find it hard to concentrate on one thing because of all the chatter going on this month from everybody.

Overall, enjoy this lighthearted time.  This is the time to speak your truth.  Use this time to strengthen your capabilities and to express and communicate who you really are.  Explore and express your own opinions rather then relying on what others suggest you think. Gemini’s influence grants us some much needed flexibility and a playful realistic attitude about ourselves.

Aries New Moon

new moon in ariesThis Saturday on April 18, 2015 at 2:57 p.m., we greet the Aries New Moon.  At the Aquarius New Moon you claimed your weird.  At the Pisces New Moon you connected with your Inner Muse so you can lead with Spirit.  Now at the Aries New Moon it’s time to take your weird self and shine*…Start something…*  Destiny is calling.  We are transitioning through a set of 4 fated New Moons, starting with last month’s New Moon in Pisces.  That means that it was in the end of a sign getting ready to transition into another constellation.  So we are having a little bit of both energies at play here with the New Moons.

When the Sun and the Moon meet up each month at a doorway, as in a New Moon, there is an alchemical call to turn what is lead within you, meaning your chattering mind, etc., into gold. *  Tracking the New Moon energy you’re reflecting a real deep relationship with the Moon.  And if you respond to the Moon, she will respond kindly back to you.  When you show up and work with these energies,  a doorway opens and something reveals.

At this New Moon, What are you being called to revolutionize?  Aries is all about new beginnings, blazing new trails, initiation energy of really making things happen.  It’s all about taking action.*  But before you can take action…what is needing to be healed will show up.

How often have you had these things or ideas that you are ready to birth?  And you show it to somebody, and unfortunately, they just don’t get it and they just YUCK on your YUM.   Where have you been YUCKED on and where are your YUMMY moments?  At this lunation, make a two column list.  On one side put YUCK and on the other side put YUM.  Make a list of those things you feel YUMMY about.  Whatever makes your heart sing and soar when you’re doing it.  And on the other side put those moments where you have been YUCKED on.  Those times where somebody’s intention bubbles up and says “You can’t do that.  Who do you think you are?  Why are you doing that for?”    How have you YUCKED on other people’s YUM?

fire breathingThere may be a teaching that wants to come forward or it may be part of your leadership right now.  There was somebody who just stomped on and crushed what you wanted to do…. a teacher, family, spouse, friend.  And now you finally have the spiritual muscle and are ready to do it.   There is no doubt in your mind that you’re ready to do it.  This is the space and place to claim it because 29 degrees is not just something that you want to ignore.  It’s Fated…It’s Destiny.*  You are going to have to connect with and trust your inner spirit that what you are doing is the right step and that it’s gonna lead you to where you want to be.

This is not the time to sit back.  You need to figure out what you want to do….Who you want to be…Because you’re planting seeds that 6 months from now you will harvest at the Aries Full Moon.  You’re going to be harvesting whatever intentions you planted these next couple of weeks;  So plant well.  Take advantage of the energy.  You just don’t want to go to sleep.  This is a time where you can manifest your dreams in a quicker way.  This is also a great time for Vision boards.

Stop discounting your inner knowing and allow divine guidance to come forward.  Tell people what you know in confidence.  Come out of the closet with your spiritual gifts and wisdom.  There is a lineage of grandmother’s and women who are holding space for us and all you have to do is show up and say YES.*

Wherever Aries is in your chart, that’s where you are called to lead.  Where is Aries in your birth chart?  That is where the action is right now.  What house?  Are there any other planets in that house?  Are they at 28 degrees or 29 degrees in Libras, Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn.  If so, then this New Moon is activating those planetary energies and asking you to tell your story in a different way.

There is a little bit of BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy going on here.  Your BIG ME is attributed to the Full Moon. It is the part of you who goes out and gets things done.  Your LITTLE ME is attributed with the New Moon and is the part of you that is still wounded.  It’s saying “Are you sure we can do this?”  Typically a New Moon occurs before the Full Moon but these past couple of months it has been reversed.  We had the Libra Full Moon last weekend before the Aries New Moon coming up on Saturday.  In Libra you are called to partner, balance, and harmonize and in Aries you are being called to lead, pioneer, and blaze new trails.

How are you being called to step up and lead.  It’s time to make a decision, at each Aries New Moon, that you claim whatever your part in the puzzle is.  You need to be firm in the conditions of what you want.  Stand ground.  What do you want to do?  How are you going to get it?  And if you’re confused, just take a breath and spend the next couple of days in nature and ask “Where did my YUM get YUCKED on?”  Because somebody in your past told you that you had to remain small.

marsMars is the ruler of Aries.  When Mars is trying to get healed it will flash into anger.  There are many types of anger.  We are human beings meant to cycle through the energy of emotion…joy, happiness, sadness, anger, etc… Since the Libra Full Moon people have been getting angry.  This is a good because when anger is expressed in a healthy way, it turns into passion.  And movements start from passion.

If you grew up in a family where anger was not allowed to be voiced then you may have a low, small voice.  And those issues of not being able to tell your truth… the anger behind the smile, is coming out for you to deal with so you can finally heal and move on.  And if anger shows up…birth that energy.  Give it a voice.  Give it some action.  Shout it.  Go to the beach and kick waves and yell “I’m really f***ing angry!”  It’s the best thing that you can do because instead of that energy being trapped in your body, it’s now been activated.

Venus, your heart knows what to do.  She knows what she wants to create, and now she gives Mars her marching orders.  Because Mars will always be in service to Venus.  Mars can take things and run with it.  It wants to motivate, fire things up.  So celebrate the anger.

What are you longing to create for yourself in your business… in your relationship… in your family?  You want to look at the task at hand.  What story is begging to be told.  Aries is all about asking you to take a risk.  Mars is a great energy.  It takes your intentions and helps to move them into action.  Mars is important.  If you don’t have a healed Mars, you will be trying to get things going but it just won’t get anywhere.  You need a healthy Mars.  Where is Mars in your body?  Where in your physical form are you holding all that Mars energy.

aries in the skyThese next three New Moons are going to be very important celestial events.  Aries is your ability to lead.  saying “YES” to leadership.  BIG ME vs. LITTLE ME energy.  Taurus is about your self-esteem and self-worth.  Do I have a grounded knowing who I am, what my value is.  I know how to create abundance.  I know how to ask for the money.  Gemini is about your voice.  Giving voice to your truth.

What’s your Yum gonna be this week leading up to the New Moon?  It’s a 9 month birthing process.  You’re gonna start to see stuff from this in 6 months and by January you’ll see it fully formed.
