Finally Mercury goes direct Saturday, now in Libra. This weekend should be rather quiet mentally as we are recovering from this crazy month. Your intelligence will return. Tons of mail will show up at the door. Plans will move forward. Confusion fades. Stupid mistakes come to an end. Yeah!
Sunday Mars moves into Capricorn. I've always considered this a strange place for Mars. It's the sign of business and the entrepreneur, but its also earth, which puts out fire, so its a steady Mars, vs a big action Mars. There will be progress, but slower than you might like. 10th house matters, career, take center stage. Business can finally move forward. Enact those plans you've had.
Thurs Oct 23rd is a partial solar eclipse. This is also the day the Sun moves into Scorpio, which means the eclipse is happening at 0 degree Scorpio. When any planet makes it just over the line into a new sign, its like finishing a race. There is a sense of urgency, breathlessness, even excitement. You made it to the next stage. You're here. Whew. It's a time when breakthroughs can be made more easily.
Eclipses are about CHANGE. I know you're sick of me saying this word, but hey, I am just the messenger, take your complaints up with the big gal right now, cause the Feminine side of the Universe is on fire and coming for us. CHANGE she screams. The status quo has to go, and go NOW! And this eclipse is just another seed in her master plan for shifting EVERYTHING.
Aiding the eclipse are several planets in Scorpio. Today the Sun went into Scorpio. Venus moved into Scorpio (relationships, and how we relate in same, come up for major review). The moon moved into Scorpio - and its a New Moon. Buckle up everyone, its gonna be an energy burst like a rocket taking off. And the energy lasts for six months. And all this is energy is happening during the final two squares of Pluto and Uranus in their battle over the new world. Will we keep the world as it is, so unfair and unhelpful to so many? Or will we shift our world to a place of fairness and kindness and sharing, making it good for everyone? That is the big question, which can only be answered with spiritual growth. Nothing else will do it. New attitudes, allowing our Higher Selves to dominate instead of our lower state, allowing our higher Chakra's to dominate, not our primal Chakras. Open our hearts to Universal love. Open our voices to speaking out to power with truth. Open our spirit connection via our 3rd eye and be more group encompassing vs individual focus. And finally our Crown Chakra to become one with the Universe, to WILLINGLY allow ourselves to work with the God's and their plans, which are far more exciting that we could imagine. Great things are out there for us to embrace....as long as we can cut away from the past and embrace the new.
Relationships will undergo a lot during the next 6 months...relationships end or become more solid and spiritual based for permanent connection and companionship. It's also about releasing. Drop that busload of baggage you carry around and just let it float away. Maybe they were right, maybe you were. But who gives a bleep in the greater scheme of things. Time for fresh starts. LET IT GO! And in terms of personal development, its a time to be a living spiritual being. Your psychic abilities can bloom; your hunches and intuition expand and become a tool in decisions making. Embrace your gut, even when your head says no. Give your instincts and emotions an equal shot. BALANCE your instincts and learn to use them all. Your mind or logic is NOT everything. Each gift is of equal value, and all must be in harmony to create the perfect harmony required to live a rich life in tune with your Higher Self and the goals of the Universe. This is the first step to changing, because once the connection is made to the Universe, it will take over and guide us. We will grow universal wings and fly into a new dynamic.
Meditate. Pray. Walk in Nature. Ask for guidance and assistance. Be open to change, it will come.
While all this Scorpio energy is bombarding the world, Saturn is ending its stay in Scorpio, and it too is on a mission to get as much done as possible in the remaining time available. This time is like ground zero to launch. The planets are BUSY the next few month, stirring the energy pot, and we are the particles of the soup so we will feel that energy like an electric mixer stirring the pot, not a spoon.
You've had a lot of time to think about change, to make some small steps toward it, to do self examination.....but the games are about to commence. No more planning, Scorpio energy will make us do it. Go with the flow. Please don't resist or fight it. Take the leap of faith required now and become a butterfly, soaring to spiritual heights and existence in the physical plane...something "she" has been trying to do for a long time. From now until 2020, the world will experience major change...some bad, but with our efforts a lot good. Your mission is before you. It's time.
Give yourself some time tonight or tomorrow to really go deep and visit the inner you. Ask for guidance. Beg for it if you need to. There is no shame in that. These are transformative times, but ask any mother and she'll tell you giving birth is painful. We are growing. Life feels hard. We feel stuck. We don't know where to go. How to get there. ASK for guidance every night before you go to sleep, and ask to REMEMBER that guidance. You will find your way. Really you will. And these next 6 months, when you look back in the spring, will astonish you how much you and the world has changed.
