New opportunities abound this week as the Sun moves into Sagittarius on Tuesday and a new Sagittarius Moon dawns on Wednesday, as Jupiter stations direct. Perhaps offering a few glimpses into the incoming solar and lunar phases, Mercury and Venus will conjoin in upbeat Sagittarius on Monday. In fact the two will travel in tandem throughout their Sagittarius transits, with speedy Mercury leading the way. Sagittarius is astrology’s mutable fire sign. It is also the home of magnanimous Jupiter, and is thus associated with the planet’s largess and inexhaustible exuberance. That Jupiter will begin moving forward as the Sag solar and lunar cycles get underway is another indication that fresh starts are possible.
November 8th’s lunar eclipse is shaping up to be a doozy. The groundwork will be laid on Monday when the Moon moves into Taurus, the sign it will be in during the eclipse and Venus squares Saturn. As the eclipse takes place on Tuesday, Mercury will conjoin the Scorpio Sun before opposing disruptive Uranus. The lunar nodes will add more tension to the Scorpio Taurus axis, and from fixed Aquarius, Saturn will form a tight square to everything in Taurus and Scorpio. Like aftershocks following a large earthquake, reverberations from Tuesday’s action will continue for a few days. On the 9th the Sun will oppose Uranus before Mercury squares Saturn, and on the 11th, the Sun will square Saturn. In short, it’s crunch time.
The next two weeks have no shortage of significant astrological events. Those include a solar eclipse, Jupiter’s re-entrance into Pisces, and the start of a Mars retrograde. Also, Mercury will move into Scorpio on October 29th. All of that happens in the buildup to November 8th’s Lunar eclipse. With so much taking place, getting caught […]
Mercury’s second entrance into Libra on Monday sets an auspicious tone for the next two weeks, and those two weeks are important. They are the last cosmic breath of fresh air, for at least a month. That’s because an especially challenging Scorpio Sun cycle is on the way. Mercury’s full transit of diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra will coincide with the Sun and Venus reaching peak Libra strength.
Astrology’s earth signs are where ideas meet the physical dimension. Over the next few weeks, several planetary meetings will take place in earth signs. Simultaneously Mercury and Venus are taking part in an intricate and elegant dance involving the earth and air elements. In so doing, they’re creating a biofeedback loop between the intellect and matter. Additionally, Mercury’s retrograde status is affording everyone an opportunity to rethink and refine processes. On October 2nd Mercury will station and go direct.
