It's Election Day. I hope you get out there and vote.
We start with the full Moon in Taurus on Wed the 5th. Taurus is ruled by Venus and is an earth sign, so its practical sign, needing security in money, and in love. They are "still waters run deep" people. Never underestimate a Taurus' tenacity, as they are ruled by the Bull, and can be quite stubborn and forceful when you push them. Full moons are about overblown emotions. Add to that its opposed Scorpio planets over the next couple of days and you'll feel these planets activate as they are hit by the emotional moon. Just play as nice as you can, because emotions will run high and stubborn. There will be power plays! Diplomacy wins the day, and if you can do that you deserve to be in a position of authority.
As the moon moves quickly through Taurus for two days it will oppose every planet in Scorpio. First it will hit Mercury, which moves into Scorpio on Sat the 8th (communication chaos for a moment, then your sharp mind in Scorpio will give you insights that could be brilliant), then the Sun (our deepest inner selves) are touched by deep emotion (be kind to yourself, but look at the dark stuff) , then Venus in Scorpio for the next 16 days(romantic/love issues could result in arguments briefly as the moon opposes), and lets not forget our pal Saturn hanging onto its stay in Scorpio for dear life, to get as much done as it can before its return in 28 years. And all this Scorpio is squaring Jupiter in Leo, making bigger mountains out of molehills, or in this case volcanoes out of mountains.
I know I talk a lot about change, and these next few weeks are a peak of that need to reinvent yourself. Scorpio is forever in renewal, from ashes to rebirth, over and over again. Its a process, like a wheel spinning to the depths and up to the heavens and back again. Scorpio is demanding rebirth. All these planets now in Scorpio make this the month to really dig deep time, 12 months till you're here again, don't waste this opportunity.
Look around and you see a lot of anger and frustration in too many people. This is the frustration of the masculine facing up to the fact that the feminine has returned to create balance, to make the masculine back down and play fair, and on an inner, intuitive even unconscious level, they feel "pushed", or are being challenged. It's threatening, but its invisible. How do you fight that? You surrender, you don't fight. You give into the wave and become a surfer, you let the healing come with the surrender and you realize you don't have to live like the craziness this world has created.
Like pushing off the side of swimming pool, just glide into the energy, let it heal you, let it renew you, let it balance you....and this world. Grab time for you, so you can reinvent yourself. To do that you need time to reflect and be still...shut off the noise. Meditate. Stop fighting it. Download my free how to. Stop driving yourself crazy and be good to you. Love yourself. Give yourself a break! Relax. Goof off for a day-or two. Turn off the radio, TV, the iPod, the phone and internet, and be silent. LISTEN to the silence. Let it surround you. Here you will find your own thoughts emerge, not everyone else's. Here you will find your voice, and your own thinking becomes louder as you listen to you. And this is where you will find ideas and answers. Even just an hour a day will make a big difference. Learn to love the peace and quiet...its when you truly can connect to your higher self and all the wisdom it knows.
Some astrologers call this decade the "turbulent teens" which is a good explanation. Like teenagers we are growing into adulthood and that entails lots of emotional turmoil and change. We approach the final two conjunct squares of Pluto and Uranus Mid Dec and March, the final square. As we approach mid December the tension and energy builds. Change comes like an earthquake and an explosion combined. Like Saturn both planets know this battle is coming to a close and the last two aspects foretell of a battle to the death. There will be tons of chaos from every arena....politics, business, institutions, and our society as a whole and we as individuals. Imagine the world as it is today getting more so. More greed, more dishonesty, more abuse of one another, more dis-ease, more planetary "natural disasters", as she is evolving with us and she is fed up with the status quo, and all its limitations. She wants to evolve into something bigger, better and more magical. She does not want to be poisoned by her inhabitants, she does not want their spiritual energy to keep her down, she wants to become a butterfly, spread her wings and be MORE. And this is our calling. To be MORE of our true nature.
Now some people think I'm nuts talking about this stuff, like a fairy tale or sci fi story. But it is real. Don't you feel it? Don't you want something better? Don't you see our society falling deeper and deeper into decay? Don't you tire of the struggle to survive? Don't you long for happiness and serenity and peace?
All this is happening to take up the gauntlet and change our ways, our thinking.
Neptune is about to move in direct motion again (16th). She is essentially standing still at the moment, readying for her forward transition. This puts our spirituality in a dreamier than usual mode, we may feel more spacy our other-wordly if we attune to her, angry and frustrated if we don't. Neptune is home in Pisces. She is so happy to be here, pouring her spirituality into the world and wishing we would join her to become the great spiritual beings we are capable of "becoming". This is why meditation is so important. Connect to her, to our father/mother, and once that connection takes place, we are filled with a sense of "everything will be ok", even though we see the chaos around and our minds are confused as to why we should feel this way. Spirit is FEELING, not intellect. It's a knowing. Meditation gives you peace because you are connected and your spirit "knows" its gonna be ok, despite the ensuing chaos that will move us all to a new place. 2015 is going to be hard. Be ready, and you'll be one of the leaders of the way to our new vibration of existence. Laugh and have fun. Stand up comedy is good for the soul, get those endorphins running through you. Keep your spirits up. Be a strong spiritual warrior. I know you can!
