I apologize for being off the radar. Getting so much done, wrapping up some inner work, and getting ready to turn my corner. I hope you are all doing the same.
August and September were pretty rough emotionally. Lots of pressure and stress. But now we are entering the phase of DOING. It's time to take action, even if you aren't quite sure what that might be. Have you cleaned and organized and sorted and planned? Well this should have opened some doors for you. I mentioned I am thinking of leaving the city, up to Wine Country, but after looking around up there my plans changed. I realized if I am away from the water, something wilts in me. I have views of the bay out my window; visit bay and ocean side restaurants, go to the beach and waterfront to smell the sweet sea air. I can't move away from the water. So my seeking has sent me in a new direction like Sausalito, or if any of you have a spare few million you'd like to hand over, Tiburon, where I have fallen in love with a 3 Million dollar house!!
Seeking will do the same for you. Just get out there. House hunt; enroll in a class or even go back to finish/get your degree; travel some where you've never been before; go to a lecture alone and meet new people; go to the symphony or the ballet if you've never been. Experiment. Now is the time when the changes will flow and happen, if you put some momentum behind it.
Last night was the full moon in Aries. A dynamic happening opposing all the planets in Libra now, including Jupiter, and conjunct Uranus and Eris in Aries. It's triggering big things, opposing energy creating friction and perhaps a need to stay away from people cause even the people you love might annoy the hell out of you now. From now until the 20th is powder keg of energies, esp the 18-20. Smack in the middle of that is the last political debate. Get your popcorn and prepare for a debate like none other. It's going to make the last one seem quiet. Thank God the moon is in Gemini that day, cooling down their emotions somewhat. But Mars in Capricorn is approaching a conjunction to Pluto makes it hard to believe things will be quiet. This is giving people of power a super big head and a bad temper. Don't fight with your boss during this period or you could get fired. Tempers are high. Just bite your lip and stay out of trouble.
Also at play is the continuing Uranus/Eris square to Pluto - the battle of the old vs the new. This is the reason the world is in such a pickle...systems are being questioned and broken down to make way for the new. This has been going on for several years now, and it has until 2020 to complete the cycle when we can be sure things will have changed DRAMATICALLY and a new world emerges in 2021. 2017 is the trigger year for much strife and stress as the true revolution lifts off, especially for the following 18 months. The key here is that (a) Uranus will win and change will happen (2) while Pluto has been bucking Uranus all this time, Pluto is also the Phoenix rising from the ashes, and when Pluto officially agrees with Uranus, and he will, Pluto will pull out all the stops and make sure there is a complete rebirth. Plan for the worst, and pray for the best. How about everyday at noon, where ever you are, you take a moment to wrap the world in love and light, and pray for a smooth transition. Our abilities are far more powerful than this world wants us to know, and combining healing and love to a better outcome can work wonders. The 60's on steroids is almost here. Late Dec or early Jan will see a big shift, and that will tell you that things are heated up and going to change, because they cannot continue this way.
Venus enters Sagittarius on the 18th, a great place romance and adventure. Meet someone wonderful on a trip: take a romantic vacation; meet someone at a class or lecture - even on Jury Duty. It's a fun time for romance - frolic and play like a pony in the fields. Nothing that stable here, but just think of it as one of those things that might end when Venus moves to Capricorn, or it might get serious when that happens. Throw some parties and have some fun. I know you need it!
On October 22nd, the Sun moves into Scorpio energy for 30 days. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which is Rebirth & Renewal. It's an intense energy time, like Hillary who is also a Scorpio, which is why she intimidates people without even trying, she's so serious and intense. On the 24th Mercury moves into Scorpio a time to put on your thinking cap and figure out a lot. Scorpios see all the details, figure things out like putting a puzzle together, and also like their secrets and their private space. Man caves were invented by a Scorpio however Scorpio have women caves too. And the New Moon in Scorpio on the 30th will trigger yet another new kind of beginning, with intense Scorpio energy, coming on the after math of the next aspect this month.
On October 29th I see some very troubling aspects. Mars is squaring Uranus...Revolution energized in a negative, angry way. Possible terrorist attacks, riots, etc. If that wasn't enough later in the day Venus, love, is conjunct Saturn, restriction. Its a time of sadness and depression, or feeling isolated and unhappy. I fear something tragic might occur, so just be careful on that day if you're in big crowds.
Finally a word about the election. I hesitated mentioning this, but hey, it's what I see and I think its big enough that you should know it. No astrologer is ever 100% right, but as you can see there is something odd about all this.
Astrologically speaking, I have been troubled for months trying to figure out what's up with this election. Neither Trump nor Hillary have aspects showing they should be the nominees. Nor on election day do either show they should win and on Inauguration day I see neither of them being sworn in. I finally met with a couple of fellow astrologers, who were relieved to hear what I was thinking, since so many astrologers have taken either side with strong conviction and we concur it's just their personal beliefs, not astrology, Western or Vedic. We decided something is seriously afoot, like we each had suspected. Something crazy, perhaps crooked, and inexplicable is going on.
I also note that on election day, there are no major planets aspecting each other after 8:55am until 12:51 AM the next day, 16 hours of nothingness. Even the Moon goes void at 8:55 AM for the day. This is like an empty vessel with no energy at all. How can tens of millions of people cast a vote with any conviction on such a blah low energy day? Or is this the apathy with which people will be voting, not happy with either candidate? But beyond that, why no inauguration aspects for either?
Sadly I fear there may be a catastrophic event between Christmas and New Years Day perhaps throwing the country into turmoil and postponing an Inauguration? I hope not. And again, I ask you all to do the prayer for the earth everyday. Asking for love and healing to surround the entire planet and its inhabitants with blessings and a positive future.
Also note that on November 9th at 12:51PM the first aspect after the election is Mars moving into Aquarius, the sign of the Humanitarian. This is energy that should motivate people to come together and see the bigger picture. Hopefully whatever is happening will bring us closer, so we can solve problems and not run from them anymore.
Take care one and all.
Much love, Yvonne
