New Moon in Scorpio — Walking on frozen water

On November 18th, 2017 we will be experiencing a New Moon in Scorpio.  New Moons represent the beginning of a new cycle as well as an end to an old cycle.  Scorpio’s power is that of transformation, death, and rebirth.  This time is a time of setting the stage for the next act in your life.

Scorpio also reveals the underlying motivations for particular harmful behaviors.  This particular New Moon will be in the 3rd decan, ushering an inside look at the problems of societies aimlessness.  Behaviors that are particularly damaging to the inner child’s development, will be highlighted and hopefully extinguished.  You have to see the actual damage that is being done to actually be inspired to do something about it.  This New Moon will point out the problems with alternative parenting, teenage depression, and opiate deaths of teenagers.  Normality and structure are frowned upon in this society, to its detriment nonetheless.  All you have to do is look at the President if we truly want to see what this country is all about.  This is a good time to switch off the “News” and spend some time in the darkness of the New Moon.  The womb of creation.

The three days leading up to the New Moon is referred to as the Dark Moon period when the moon becomes invisible which represents a liminal time.  The liminal figure I want to bring your attention to during this period is the Orisha Olokun.  These are times of transition and transformation.  Olokun represents the dark and cold bottom of the ocean.  The deep part where no light can get and no heat.  Just the dead marine life and plants that slowly travel to the lowest depths of the sea which no man can survive.  From these depths, Olokun stretches her wisdom and forms a bridge from one place to another.  Olokun represents the untouched and unmarked ideas embedded deep in your subconscious mind.  During the Dark Moon with proper concentration and focus, one can fulfill his wildest desires and hopes. Olokun holds the mysteries.  These times hold tremendous magical power if you’re not afraid of the Dark.  Certain deities are not discussed as much as others based on the liminality of the certain diety.  Most people are not ready to make the major transitions and transformations that require a change in scenery, environment, or perception.  There is a tremendous energy bestowing generosity and power if one deals with his/her interior.

This New Moon brings change based on its Uranus inconjunction.  Most people fear change and will find it hard to integrate themselves.  Learn to be flexible and open to change.  Set positive intentions through ritual.  Concentration and Focus is the solution to stagnation.  Making minor changes could bring major results if you take heed.

This Week in Astrology 10/10 to 10/14/17 (Jupiter in Scorpio)

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 oppose Chiron in Pisces October 10th 2017

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.  How adept at you at reconciling your pain and trauma?  Do you mask it or deal with it?  The question of how you actually deal with pain do you let it bring you down or do you cut it off.  In truth our greatest love comes from healing those wounds and moving forward from healing.  The falsehood is when we don’t deal or try to mask these pains and keep acting like it isn’t there.  Active healing is called for during this transit.

Mars in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius October 11th 2017

Whenever we experience an aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius the question comes are we aligned with our soul’s purpose.  If we are, Saturn rewards.  If we are not, Saturn disciplines.  Mars in Virgo represents our actions in the context of purpose, the challenge is making the right decisions.  Continuing to walk in our path if we have been sidelined, or managing begin to walk in our light will be highlighted under this transit.  Most people do not like this transit because it requires accountability to be on the positive side of it.  Remember that no shot goes in that you never shoot.

Venus in Virgo inconjunct Uranus in Aries October 11th 2017

Learning how to incorporate imperfections into your perfect vision.  Even better the imperfections of you is what makes you perfect, strange as it seems.  Venus in Virgo representing your highest octave of love, inconjunct/quincunx to Uranus in Aries represents your individual Soul Urge.  Inconjunctions represent integrating the different aspects of our lives.  So this particular aspect is based upon integrating perfection and the unpredictability of our urges and being okay where they lead us.  But at least we went for it.  Where can we let go of things that no longer serve us without emotional turmoil.

Mercury in Libra sextiles North Node October 12th 2017

This transit puts wings on our thoughts and ideas, raises them to another level.  Mercury in Libra is enhanced with balanced mental acuity.  So make sure to be active in the realms of communication, writing, and any creative projects.  Whether the break happens now or later, the work you do now will be the seed you need to plant for a later date.  Stay active.

Mercury in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius October 12th 2017

Continuing to work towards your future and being aligned with a positive one where you will be rewarded.  Opportunities don’t come knocking everyday and they don’t return because you missed the call.  The saying goes if you stay ready you never need to get ready.

Venus enters Libra October 14th 2017

Our love moves into a conceptual stage.  We begin to examine and investigate the love we truly seek as it evolves.  A perfect place to be to prepare for a New Moon in Libra happening on the 18th.  Libra being an Air Sign and Venus an Earth Planet, we can expect great changes in our ideas surrounding love and how it is expressed.

 

Prince of Cups – Taurus New Moon (2016) Tarot Card

92a31a6bc49cbedb2a3dec8553a442f6

What can we expect from the Taurus New Moon? The answer is the Prince of Cups.  

We can expect that things will go into a forced equilibrium, that will bring about a turning point in all of our lives.  Just think Prince.  We are going through a deep emotional phase in human history.  Consciousness is now being fused with the mind of God, it is likened to a maturation process of the spirit and soul.  

This is a time to deal with the subconscious mind, or we will clearly see the subconscious mind manifest right before our eyes.  Truly remarkable as well as subtle.  

We are encouraged to follow our feelings, let our hearts guide us in making decisions, when you feel strongly about something do not hesitate.  We are approaching a new beginning. A true harmonization of the mind and heart.  

Let us celebrate the beauty in others and the beauty of life during this Moon phase.  Let us grow our connection to the earth, by appreciating it.  

God Heals.

Until Next Time

10 of swords – rock bottom ain’t so bad.

image

As we bid farewell to our old way of thinking, one must become the observer. The observer 10 of swords is the card where things are out of your hands, but one must not get caught up in his surroundings.  When we deal with sudden loss or sudden hardship, it is important to abstract the lesson from whatever we seem to be going through.  That is wisdom.  This is a time that may be characterized by hostile thoughts and destructive forces. If this is so be sure that you observe all unhealthy habits, unhealthy people, and situations.  They will end, by choice or by force. Do not get caught up in things you can not change. Just learn from it and move on. A new life cycle is on the way, based upon manifest thoughts, and the removal of the waste. So we can be the soul we truly want to be.  Please remember the lesson of it all, because this is the end. This is how we transform. This is the process of attaining wisdom.
That is all for now.
Peace calm & overcome

The Aeon (something to look forward to)

thoth-aeon-198x300

As the eclipse cycle continues, we continue to pull cards relative to it.

This is the sword after the heat treatment. Shiny and New. When you see the sword, you couldn’t have imagined that it had ever been rusted and dull. The Sword is you.
So go through this time knowing that you can be reborn, transformed, and renewed. The possibilities are still endless. But the heat treatment is necessary, innerstand. Go into meditation and visualize your refined self, this is the Aeon(time).

For a reading leave a comment. I will pull a card and interpret it for you. Peace.

Namaste
