“Watch Out, Hot Plate Coming Thru” * Scorpio Sun 10/22/16!

astrology_chartwheel 2On Saturday, October 22, 2016, the Scorpio Sun will want to infuse us with passion and focus to get projects accomplished, snare that love interest and drill down thru any mysteries that need to be solved. (Think “determination”) Due to the characteristic sensitivity and emotionality of this Water sign, Scorpio’s power will not be served distant and cold – there will be drama, there will be depth, the time is ripe for revelation. Stubborn, secretive, serious, sensual, sizzling – these adjectives all fit Scorpio to a T (or in this case, to an “S”).

Where does intense Scorpio, its traditional planet ruler Mars (energy and aggression) and its modern ruler Pluto (power and transformation), appear in your chart – Sun sign, Ascendant, Moon? Regardless of the House placement, the 8th sign of the Zodiac can uncover deeper feelings for us all. Superficial skimming the surface, in conversation or action, just won’t do. When confronted with an issue, there will only be an apparent yes or a no response – compromise is out of the question. Unlike under a Libra Sun, where decision making can be tortuous, it is black or white with Scorpio, no shades of grey. “Maybe” is not acceptable.

Mercury, the Communication planet, will be transiting Scorpio from 10/24 – 11/13/16. Interactions can be easily heated and more demanding than usual. Be focused and as clear as possible regardless of how deep the vat of emotion. Paint inside the lines to avoid unnecessary confusion and / or hurt feelings. You may get all wrapped up in reacting or acting out and then discover that the “overwhelm” does not quite match the situation. Pausing doesn’t lessen importance, but it can be used as a time out to bring things into perspective and to lighten the atmosphere.

Passion, Intensity, Focus – 2016’s Scorpio Full Moon!

Astro Full Moon 6Whether 4/21 on the West Coast or 4/22 on the East Coast, we will experience a Full Moon in powerful, sensual, emotional Water sign Scorpio. The 8th sign of the zodiac is ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars). Heightened sensitivity may result in raw, deep feelings during this lunar transit – be aware of possible over reaction. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks.

Scorpio also pushes us to focus on money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures?  Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?

Scintillating Scorpio Sun, 10/23/15!

astrology_chartwheel 2Stubborn, secretive, sensitive, sensual – these adjectives all fit Scorpio, the mysterious 8th sign of the Zodiac. The depth and strength of this Water sign can handle all descriptions. The Sun will heat and be heated by this sign beginning on Friday October 23, 2015. There will be intensity, smoldering feelings and be aware that any romantic entanglements can be taken to sizzling heights. OKAY!

With Scorpio’s traditional planet ruler Mars (energy and aggression) and its modern ruler Pluto (power and transformation), any superficial skimming of the surface just won’t do. Put off any thoughts of interaction “lite” for another time. Although, being too passionate and emotional may cause us to get wrapped up in life’s drama and then we discover that the resulting “overwhelm” does not quite match the situation. There is nothing wrong with using an internal pause button when dealing with friends and loved ones to give us a chance to assess what’s going on, rather than just react (over react?).

With its power and intense focus, we can accomplish a lot during a Scorpio Sun regardless of where it appears in your personal chart. However, remember that laughter can be used as a balm to stabilize, bring things into perspective and lighten the atmosphere. Find an authentic way of being that can lift the mood when necessary.

Scorpio Full Moon 5/3/15 – Intense!

Astro Moon FullThe Taurus Sun is reflected in the opposite Scorpio Moon = a beautiful Full orb in the passionate, emotional 8th sign of the Zodiac. Ruled by transformational planet Pluto, (traditional ruler is warrior planet Mars) there are deep feelings, focus and determination influencing us during this lunar phase with energy to spare. A Full Moon is a good time to figure out what to keep and what to throw away (discard whatever is no longer meaningful, useful, and / or beneficial.) Gauge what has been accomplished since the New Moon and move on to finalize and complete tasks in the next few weeks.

Scorpio also pushes us to focus on money matters that may involve others. Are there any financial issues that need to be cleared or settled– taxes, business ventures? Does anyone owe you anything? Time to collect?

Winter Solstice / Capricorn Sun – Together Again on 12/21/14!

The Capricorn Sun on Sunday December 21, 2014, is the official start of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and is the shortest day of the year. This Earth sign, ruled by stern Saturn, believes in duty, responsibility, and loves being in charge. Regardless of our actual birth date, we may all feel the influences of the ambitious 10th sign of the Zodiac and get a thrill directing traffic and telling people what to do. Fun for the boss, but maybe not so much for the employee? Remember to be careful with how you treat others, you can be authoritative with honey, rather than vinegar.

astrology_chartwheel 2After all the excitement and activities of the holidays, there is no need to have an energy let down. As the year’s end approaches, it’s the perfect time to look at what we’ve accomplished in 2014. With Capricorn‘s affinity for work and organization, we can keep busy, accomplished and sensible. Plan what’s next for 2015, tune up career moves, set up a networking campaign, determine whatever needs to be shaped up and do it. Make something happen. Just don’t get so bogged down that you become rigid and/or cautious. Relax, remember that you have a sense of humor – use it.

And just to make it all the more interesting, there are Planets transiting Capricorn during this time:

*Venus (Love, beauty, money) 12/11/14 – 1/3/15 – relaxing of “all or nothing” attitudes for getting ahead. Focus on financial gains?

*Mercury (Communication, travel, tech) 12/17/14 – 1/4/15– Reading/writing can become more serious. Maintain sense of humor. Reign in sharp, hurtful exchanges. Listen.

*Pluto (Rebirth, transformation) has been in Capricorn since 2008 – deep feelings, changes in career direction?, revelations, regeneration (until 2023)

**Capricorn Sun = December 21, 2014…6:03 PM EST / 3:03 PM PST

Gemstone: Obsidian, Onyx *Power color: Black, grays * Body Part: Bones

FYI:  “The Winter Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the first day of winter…The seasonal significance of the winter solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days.” (per WikiPedia)

 

 

The Heat is On – Sun Into Scorpio 10/23/2014!

It may be a cool, brisk Fall day, but on October 23, 2014, the Scorpio Sun brings heat and sizzle. Potent, powerful, persistent, passionate OR, stubborn, secretive, sensitive, sensual. I couldn’t decide on which group of adjectives to use for the mysterious 8th sign if the Zodiac, so I’ve decided that it isn’t an either / or decision. The depth and strength of this Water sign can handle all descriptions. “Watch out, hot plates coming through”. (Sorry, heard that once in a diner. It fits.)

astrology_chartwheel 2Where does Scorpio, ruled by power and transformation planet Pluto, appear in your chart”, Sun sign, Ascendant, Moon? Regardless of the House placement, the 8th sign of the Zodiac brings intensity and deep feeling to us all. Many times when confronted with an issue, there will only be either a yes or a no response – compromise is out of the question. “Maybe” will not be acceptable. It is black or white with no shades of grey. Especially now with Saturn, planet of discipline, perseverance, and boundaries, visiting until December 23, 2014, feelings of responsibility, the demand for real life, well defined positions, along with some hard edged decisions will be amped. Superficial skimming the surface, in conversation or action, just won’t do.

Note that deep and fierce stuff can lead to all sorts of “feelings” that you may not be prepared to confront. So, don’t be surprised if emotionality occasionally goes unchecked. Often, the resulting “overwhelm” may not quite match the situation. There is nothing wrong with using an internal pause button to give us a chance to think, rather than just react. We can accomplish a lot during this time using Scorpio’s power and focus. But also remember that laughter can be used as a balm to stabilize, bring things into perspective and lighten the atmosphere.  

BTW: Lovely, romantic Venus visits Scorpio from 10/24 thru 11/17/14. The transit should enhance sensuality, add lushness and perhaps soften seduction. And, because it is transiting this intense sign, actions and revelations will be serious – about what you value and especially how you value yourself.  The scope of the impact depends on where (which House) Scorpio falls in your particular chart.

Astro New Moon CrescentBeginning early Saturday morning, August 30, 2014, the Moon sizzles in sensitive, sensual Scorpio. When the Lunar orb is in the 8th sign of the Zodiac, we can be intense. Going after whom or what you want is just the way it is. Use the seductive energy wisely.

Also, is there anything you want to find out? Search for anyone? Uncover a mystery? A Scorpio Moon provides the determination and energy to discover and handle truths. Secrets are not safe from this Pluto ruled Water sign. No hiding allowed. Some feathers may be ruffled, but the impulse to drill deep and get to the bottom of whatever will be hard to deny.

Have a powerful weekend!

Great Weekend – Moon in Passionate Scorpio, Then Peppy Sagittarius

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lBeginning Friday December 27, 2013, until Sunday, the Moon is solidly in the middle of Scorpio drama, intensity and determination. Anything you want to find out? Search for anyone, uncover a mystery? The Scorpio Moon provides the determination and energy to discover and handle truths. Secrets are not safe from this Pluto ruled Water sign. No hiding allowed. It translates to an unwillingness to coast, “go along to get along”, etc. Some feathers may be ruffled, but the impulse to drill deep and get to the bottom of whatever will be hard to deny.

Early Sunday morning, it’s all about Sagittarius. When the Moon bounces into this Jupiter ruled Fire sign, we tend to be upbeat, friendly risk takers. It’s all good, everything is possible, a “yes” attitude. Fun Sagittarian energy – great time to do something, be something, learn something – and enjoy it!

Have a marvelous weekend!

 

Moon for the Holidays!

Most of us will have an early weekend start due to the Holiday. Below is a heads up about where the Lunar orb will be and what influences we may experience as we celebrate: Astro moon-waning-crescent-l

Thanksgiving / Hanukkah (begins Wednesday at sundown)  Moon is in relationship central Libra, so whether you will celebrate either/or (both?), this Venus ruled Air sign is perfect for social gatherings, sharing abundance, setting a beautiful table.

Weekend:  Beginning Friday evening the Moon will be in determined, focused, take no prisoners Scorpio (it’s ruled by Pluto). This can be great for scoping out sales or just corralling a significant other into a secret rendezvous. Regardless, Scorpio’s passion and Water sign emotions can be put to good use.

Enjoy your Holiday!

 

Get Ready For The Passionate, Intense Scorpio Sun!

astrology_chartwheel 2On October 22, Pacific Time, and October 23, 2013, Eastern Time, the Sun moved into Scorpio the 8th sign of the Zodiac. It brings intensity and deep feelings and can take partnerships to new sensual, sizzling heights.

With its traditional planet ruler Mars (energy and aggression) and its co ruler Pluto, (power and transformation) any superficial skimming of the surface just won’t do. Save the relationship “lite” for another time. Although, being too passionate and emotional may cause us to get wrapped up in life’s drama and then discover that the resulting “overwhelm” does not quite match the situation. Nothing wrong with using an internal pause button when dealing with friends and loved ones to give us a chance to think, rather than just react.

Mercury, communication planet, will be transiting Scorpio (including its 3 week Retrograde period) until December 5, 2013. Saturn, planet of discipline, perseverance, and boundaries, will be visiting Scorpio until December 2014. The demand for the “real”, in conversation and action, goes up a few notches.

Regardless of where it appears in your personal chart, we can accomplish a lot during this time using Scorpio’s power and focus. But also remember that laughter can be used as a balm to stabilize, bring things into perspective and lighten the atmosphere. Save any overflowing angst and/or grudges for another day – it may dissipate as the mood changes.
