Orishas of the Week: Oya and Obatala
Theme of the Week: Letting go of the things that no longer serve us, preparation for transformation.
Jupiter enters Scorpio October 10th 2017
Where Jupiter in Libra was about working through our relationship with the outside world and balancing our inner work to find the greatest expansion of ourselves. Jupiter in Scorpio looks to bring optimism in our darker expressions to bring about expansion through transformation. Jupiter in Libra was more of choosing your team, and now in Scorpio is more of a vetting of our teammates. The question is, do they have what it takes. Jupiter is optimistic and thus represents your optimism, Scorpio represents the darkness necessary for transformation. Understanding why we go through what we go through and what did we learn from it will be the theme coming up in this current Jupiter Cycle. Can we learn the benefits of darkness? Our relationships will be what we bring into this cycle, Scorpio will alert us to the why. Jupiter is seeking intimacy in Scorpio, the kind of intimacy that brings satisfaction to our carnal desires. How you are able to handle this energy will be paramount to your expansion over the next 13 months. Jupiter will be in Scorpio until 11/8/18. Remember to being the light to any darkness you experience to overcome and thrive during this transit.

Venus in Virgo represents your love at its highest octave, its greatest potential. What stands in the way of this is opposed Chiron in Pisces representing your deepest wound.

Active healing is called for during this transit.
