Happy Countdown to Christmas!!
Happy Gratitude Month!!
Happy Birthday Scorpio!!
This 'brr' months sees the autumn sun in the depths of sidereal Scorpio, the sign of resurrection, resurgence, and regeneration, at 10 degrees.
Next Friday is the first of December, with Saturday being the full moon in Taurus, which can be a real case of calm, as heaven goes on vacation till well after Christmas. Sunday is the first of Advent!! What a sweet blessing to have the last Sunday fall on Christmas Eve!!
We star gazers, readers of Gods word written in the heavens, know the names of the stars of Scorpio, amid which our daystar rises, to include The Wounding, The Heart of A Scorpion, Perverse, The Enemy Ruled, Bowed Down, Caused to Fail. Most instructive! If we are contemplative, we realize that this sign has three incarnations; a misunderstood scorpion, capable of self annihilation; a soaring eagle who sees all; and a rising Phoenix.
Today the sun rises against a most interesting swirl of stars just off the elliptic, called Ophiuchus, the serpent handler. These stars and those of the Serpens are related to healing, medicine, and the restoration of the earth. It isn't difficult to reconcile the ideas of resurrection, recycle, chthonic, and snake! We see the caduceus is a twin pair of snakes, reminding us that what can kill us also can heal us. The individual names for these stars include The Healer, The Physician, The One Who Brings Cure, and Universal Remedy. Those people and relationships born under these stars have dualistic tendencies and are very changeable and unpredictable. The wise and prudent will consider her actions and issues through this lens.
The daily lights, calculated from real time at sunrise on the Pacific coast, for the Weekend of 25 & 26 November 2017
The moon will reign from the Top of the zodiac, Capricorn, sign of tradition, family, and abundance, till Saturday afternoon. With the moon in hard working Capricorn and the sun shining from ruby Scorpio, our main focus will be unity and connection. With the moon in the sign of the odd creature, the Sea Goat, we are at our most ambitious, toughest, and most likely to succeed. We must be cautious not to overstep our strength! Family comes first, with work and occupation a close second. Special care must be taken of the bones of the skeleton and the teeth, as these are at their most vulnerable now. Recall, 'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you get a root canal now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
Our dreams promise to be full of surprisingly insightful Saturday morning, and we are wise not just to pay attention, but to act upon our intuition by 7 05 AM Pacific, 10 05 AM eastern time.
We may find that we have made a sad purchase a month ago, discovering either a lack of sympathy in color or style, or a defect at 10 12 AM Pacific, 1 12 PM eastern time. Let's do our shopping between 2 35 PM till 6 37 PM Pacific, 5 35 PM till 9 37 PM eastern, when the unexpected lands at our feet in the nicest possible way! We are sure to run into friends and frienemies during these hours, and much will be jolly!
Saturday afternoon at 2 15 PM Pacific, 5 15 PM eastern time, the moon buoys into Aquarius, bubbling with ideas and schemes. With the moon in Aquarius and the sun in deep Scorpio, our minds are strongly colored and attracted by anything new and exciting and just a bit dangerous. We are at our most inclusive and philanthropic. We look at the Big Picture, almost exclusively, and tend to really believe that one size fits all. Not the time to go on an ego trip. Special care must be taken of the small joints and ankles, as these are at their most vulnerable now. Recall,
'touch not with iron those parts of the body resided by the moon.' You won't die if you sprain your ankle now, but you won't heal as rapidly and recover as fully, either.
On Saturday the orb of communication and ideas, Mercury, shoots into Sagittarius, fleet and true. The quicksilver orb in presently engaged with Saturn, the planet of NO!! I SAID NO!!! and will remain in a slow, low wander through the 10 th of December. If we are a bit bittersweet about life now, pondering what might have been, let's take power over this by directing our thoughts toward learning from past mistakes. There is no profit in expending good energy beating ourselves up over what can't be changed, but we can make amends, restitution, and a firm plan for the future.
Sunday afternoon may find us in healing prayer at 1 22 PM Pacific, 4 22 PM eastern time, when grace abounds to those who seek it. A bit later in the evening, we feel blessed, and later, 10 08 PM Pacific, Inspired!
We may wisely begin finishing up and dovetailing projects now till after Christmas!!
This Friday ushers in the month of December, Saturday the moon comes full in calm, sweet natured and even tempered Taurus. Heaven goes on vacation and sweeps us backward a bit, giving us time to regain ground. The important days are the 9 th and 10 th, when we are alert to possibilities of making good on errors and omissions. Our review time lasts through the 23 rd! Just in time for a fresh heart at Christmas!
Next Saturdays full moon in Taurus is called the Cold Moon, the All Night Long Moon, and the Yule Moon, as this is the last one before Christmas. December, or Decem-brrr! is when the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long while the Moon remains above the horizon for a longer time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.
The Christian Scorpio is a knight on an errand to descend, to discover a deep understanding of sin, repentance, and redemption, bringing sympathy, empathy, and wisdom to all his endeavors. He is most concerned about The Wounding, and how Him Who Cometh will resolve The Conflict. Also called The Intense, Scorpio is energetic, intelligent, jealous, possessive, hardworking, obsessive and frequently secretive. Usually, Scorpio is physically attractive, almost compellingly so, as well as spiritually determined, ever romantic but seldom talkative. This is the sign most often called selfish, or self centered, and this is occasionally true-at times. Always the Intense Scorpio must be in long passionate and dramatic relationships! Those who know assure us they are great kissers!! Scorpios lesson is daily practice of forgiveness, as this sign has a poisonous tendency to holds grudges.
Scorpio energy is connected to the Thymus and its corresponding chakra. This is the center for expressing the deepest, most heartfelt thoughts,. Speaking ones own truth on an emotional level can be difficult, and to do so with Christian kindness and transparency requires Christian grace. If the Scorpion feels confronted with challenges, the first instinctual reaction is to sting, and sting hard, quickly, repeatedly. We all know how that works out!! A wiser use of the legendary creative ability is to open up opportunities for change.
The Wise Scorpio will chose turquoise. That color between blue and green, also called aqua, is the secret catalyst that uplifts the energies of the lower chakras into the higher centers, allowing movement of optimum energy flow.
Turquoise energy helps express emotions with conviction, without trying to please others. Use turquoise to help build up the immune system and remove toxic waste in the body. It is known to decrease congestion of all physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. The essential oils reflecting the turquoise color include Tea Tree, Thyme and Clary Sage. Any plants from the ocean, such as seaweed, kelp or algae belong to this energy vibration. Wear turquoise gemstones, including aquamarine and tourmaline, which empower your Thymus chakra!
Mercury scoots through sidereal Scorpio, bringing up the past in all its colorful glory! The shoot into Sagittarius brings our ideas tending toward sobriety and tradition as Saturn comes into play through the 10 th of December!!
The phantom moon Vulcan scuttles close to the sun in the eye of the eagle.
Venus, the charmer of the heavens, sits triumphantly in her winter home of Libra. Elegance, grace, beauty, and charm are everywhere!!
Mighty Mars slides through the cool star fields of Virgo.
Mighty, benevolent Jupiter, now in Libra, enhances and expands all that is elegant, refined, sweetly harmonious and charming. What a year we have ahead!
Saturn is making a straight shot through Sagittarius, stalling our travel plans and putting a damper on our school credits. The dour schoolteacher of the cosmos, at his best, can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand. We have the next couple of years to study the laws by which we live and measure them against the Laws by which we really live. If there is a discrepancy, now is the time to address such issues. Schooling and study itself will come under scrutiny and some fire. Test the tester!! We will find travel restrictions are nothing new and hard as iron now, and we need to seriously consider the need for borders. Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, is exploding through Aries the Spring Lamb in soccer style, backwards. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Neptune retrograde in Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation, brings us most of our ideas from the future itself. We know this intuitively as we know what is about to happen, and bingo! it comes to pass! This will continue as a trend till late November. Make wise use of this, a precious gift, Star Travelers!
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there. Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
There are only two planets retrograde right now, plus the planette Chiron. Nebulous Neptune is wayward in the sign of Brotherhood and Ka-Boom Uranus in All Ahead Full Aries. We note our dreams make no sense, even to us, while our impulse to forge ahead is cut short, falling to the ground before us. Retrogrades are meant to give us time to mull over, plan, think ahead and think again. If we were fortunate enough to be born during a retrograde phase of any orb, we are in touch with the future of that issue, and can be of enormous help to others who have trouble navigating!! Let's explore!!
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, balances in Libra.
Our spousal planette Juno journeys through Sagittarius, making this a great time to explore our options for the single life. Juno is almost never happy when alone, or when committed. Today she may break more than one friendship with a member of the other gender, and we can head her off by staying cool!
Splashing in Pisces is the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde now to go back and fix what needs work on our inner emotional issues with real success when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, jumps the hoop in Aries backwards. This can bring back old friends, enemies, frienemeis, and more. Today she antagonizes our big ideas; that's what BFFs are for!
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, rests at Home in Cancer, where she revitalizes our kitchen, redecorates, and takes home cooking to a healing level!
This marks the 12 th complete lunation for this year.
I did warn you that things are definitely looking up!! I must remark upon the Black Swan event known as the Trump Bump, and take my hat off to a miracle!
Jupiter, the Magnifier, the cosmic Santa Claus, is in the Markets fifth house of speculation (and children, fun, recreation, enjoyment of same) which makes all of our efforts pay threefold. If we make wise investments, we can share! If we make sorry decisions, we can lose big. A word to the Wise!!!
Saturn, the planet of NO!!! occupies the markets sixth house of everyday every day; our daily routine and the things that give our time structure, schedules; of employees, fellow employees, those who work or serve us in some way; health, hygiene, and the way we worry about things, and best of all, small animals and pets. If we have any investment in these areas, let's take a long long long hard look at our rationale, and maybe consider a further diversification. Saturn in Sagittarius pretty much curtails foreign investments, and we will indeed see much repatriation go on in the corporate world.
Another of the major factors of which we must be carefully cognizant is Pluto in Sagittarius, in the sixth house of everyday every day, of employees, of open enemies. Pluto brings out our zits and boils them to a head, which is necessary for cleanliness and health, and which really hurts and looks disgusting. Sagittarius is the law and The Law, all thing foreign and foreign to us, and religion, and journeys. I think you can see what the real root of the matter is here! The election of Donald Trump, as well as the Brexit was ordained in the world, as are other Black Swan events, the lancing of long stagnant boils.
Uranus, the wildcard of the zodiac, who goes KA-BOOM! when we least expect it, is sitting at the very top of the markets chart, the House of Glory. In Aries, the electric blue orb will kick start our ambitions, our gumption and our extremes. Well it sure has!
Moving slowly in its folds of dream, Neptune in the eighth house of Aquarius is responsible for all the dire prognostications of the market crashing, burning, dying on the ice and never coming back.
Transiting Jupiter is in Libra, in the fifth house of fortunate speculation, children, recreation, and fun. Let's channel our energies and patterns wisely!! We are stewards, and this is such a profound blessing to have the Magnifier here!!
Mercury is in Scorpio in the sixth house of making money everyday, but about to retrograde after touching Saturn. Let's recoup!!
Mars is in Virgo in the Markets fourth house of strong endings; let's act on this advice and dump what is not in our best interests now.
Venus is in Libra, in the fifth house of good fortune, beautiful results!! We are in the best place for making money and sharing our charity now!
The sun in Scorpio, in the fifth house is spectacular for speculation!!
