Sun Into Scorpio 2014: Rolling In The Deep

     When the Sun changes signs, we can count on Mercury and Venus being amongst its closest traveling companions. That’s because Mercury and Venus are the planets nearest to the Sun, so the three bodies travel is close proximity. That being said, this year’s solar entrance into Scorpio is unusual. When the Sun moves into astrology’s 8th sign on October 23rd, it will be accompanied by Venus, a new Scorpio moon and solar eclipse. Along with Saturn, the Sun, Venus and new moon form a brief stellium. A stellium is a grouping of four or more planets in one sign, a condition that amplifies the themes inherent in that sign. In the case of Scorpio, these include emotional intensity, death and regeneration, sex, ritual and purification. This dramatic start marks the beginning of a cycle that will include a second eight-day-long stellium in November and the beginning of Saturn’s foray into the most extreme degrees of Scorpio. Saturn has not traversed this terrain for nearly 30 years. Add some mutual reception to potent Pluto, and the Scorpio cycle ahead promises to be an interesting one.

     Saturn represents the karmic lessons we signed up for, the soul agreements we made prior to this incarnation. When we’re living in accord with them, Saturn’s presence may only need to iron out a few wrinkles. When we’ve lost touch with them, the wakeup calls sound like fire alarms and life as we know it is severely disrupted. After all Saturn, the Universal taskmaster, is the planet charged with keeping us track and on time. Since October 2012 Saturn has been moving through Scorpio, a transit that will be complete in September of 2015. During the unfolding Sun through Scorpio cycle, Saturn will move from 22 to 26 degrees, and during the following Sun through Sagittarius cycle it will move from 26-29 degrees. The consensus in astrology is that as the planets move through the later degrees of each sign, from 20-29 degrees, the characteristics of that sign become their most pronounced.

Saturn And Ebola

     When Saturn initially passed 20 degrees of Scorpio late last December, the number of infections and deaths from the Ebola virus was in the low hundreds. As Saturn forged its way to 23 degrees, before turning retrograde on March 2nd, the number of deaths and infections steadily rose. While Saturn was in that retrograde (moving backward), the world outside of West Africa largely ignored the spreading outbreak. On July 20th Saturn stationed at 16 degrees and began moving forward, and on September 26th it reached 20 degrees for the second time. Four days later Thomas Eric Duncan became the first patient in the United States to be diagnosed with the disease. On October 27th Saturn will cross the 23 degree mark, moving beyond the point at had gotten to in March before turning retrograde. Astrologically, this means that we are moving into uncharted territory. Comparison’s are being made between Ebola and AIDS/HIV. Both are transmitted via bodily fluids, and like AIDS/HIV in its early stages, Ebola is presently lethal. Saturn’s last Scorpio transit was from August 1983 through November of 1985, with its critical 20-29 degree period beginning in late 1984.

     During that transit, Saturn first hit 22 degrees of Scorpio on December 5, 1984. Ryan White was diagnosed with AIDS/HIV that month. During its 1985 retrograde, Saturn moved back to the earliest minutes of 22 degrees on June 29th. A formal request to re-admit White to school was submitted on June 30th. Saturn remained in Scorpio until November 17th, and on the 25th, with Saturn at 1 degree of Sagittarius, an Indiana Department of Education officer ruled that White must be allowed to attend school. White was the teenaged hemophiliac who contracted the AIDS/HIV virus through a blood transfusion, and who was subsequently banned from attending his local middle school. People on his newspaper delivery route canceled their subscriptions for hear of becoming infected, 151 of his 360 classmates stayed home when he was readmitted to school, and a bullet was fired into his living room. His case ultimately inspired international compassion, and he became a celebrated spokesman for the disease until his death in April of 1990. Now Saturn is poised to journey through the late degrees of Scorpio for the first time since then. If the previous generation left a template for the current outbreak, it was given by White’s mother who said this in an interview with The New York Times.

     “Ryan always said, ‘I’m just like everyone else with AIDS, no matter how I got it.’ And he would never have lived as long as he did without the gay community. The people we knew in New York made sure we knew about the latest treatments way before we would have known in Indiana. I hear mothers today say they’re not gonna work with no gay community on anything. Well, if it comes to your son’s life, you better start changing your heart and your attitude around.”

Mutual Reception

     Whether or not we have a pandemic is not the point. Saturn is asking what lessons we learned from the last crisis. When studying the correlation between AIDS/HIV and astrology, most astrologers would correctly point to another, and far greater factor, Pluto. It was in Scorpio from 1983 until 1995. Presently Pluto, the planet of evolution, is in mutual reception to Saturn. Mutual Reception means that two planets are in each other’s signs of rulership. In this case, Saturn rules Capricorn where Pluto is and Pluto rules Scorpio where Saturn is. Under this condition, the two planets share characteristics and work toward corresponding purposes. Capricorn deals with institutions, government and systems, and similarly Saturn is the planet of structure, order and discipline. Scorpio is associated with loss, power and metamorphosis, and Pluto is the planet of death, change and transformation. However the Ebola outbreak plays out, we’re already seeing a coalescing of these energies as NGOs, the UN and governments stridently work to find solutions. On a personal level, this mutual reception gives us the opportunity to apply form and structure to goals and objectives. It’s also working to weed out the things in our lives that are out of sync with our life purpose. Though Saturn and Pluto have been in mutual reception since 2012, during this Sun through Scorpio cycle, all of the personal planets will strengthen it, bringing its influence closer to home. On October 26th Mars will move into Capricorn, fueling Pluto, and on November 8th Mercury will move into Scorpio, joining Venus and supporting Saturn.

     Mercury’s entrance into Scorpio forms the cycle’s second stellium. This one will last until the 16th when Venus heads into Sagittarius. On the dark side, Scorpio is associated with secrecy, envy, obsession and deceit. During this stellium, we are being asked to examine our darkest fears and to pay careful attention each time an emotional button is pushed. Scorpio is astrology’s shaman, and its hallmark is honesty. What is repressed cannot heal, and this eight-day period gives us time to look inward, trace emotions back to their origins and release the unhealthy patterns they’ve encoded. Mars will encourage us to face our shadows, fears and true desires. Prayer, journaling and meditation are ways to work through this celestial purification zone. Saturn will depart from Scorpio on December 23rd of this year, return to it from June 16th through September 18, 2015, and then leave the sign for another 29 and a half years. This is the last time when the Sun and Saturn will connect in Scorpio until then. Shortly before his untimely death, Dallas native Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded his last studio album. The project gave him the chance to fulfill a long-held wish to work with his older brother Jimmie. Their track “Tick Tock” has a title befitting Saturn and a message hauntingly relevant to the challenges before us.

Sun Into Virgo 2014: Power Station

     Mutable, service-oriented Virgo is not the sign we typically associate with power. Initiating Cardinal signs like assertive Aries and ambitious Capricorn, or determined Fixed signs like firm Taurus and Pluto-ruled Scorpio, usually come to mind long before the mild-mannered earth sign. In part this is due to cultural conditioning that has mislead us into regarding values like love and peace as signs of weakness, instead of strength. Further, we’ve been lead to think of masculinity and its aggressive characteristics as being more powerful than femininity and its communal qualities. Phrases like “dog eat dog” and “survival of the fittest” have infiltrated our collective psyche and distorted our perceptions. One tap of any news app shows us how much damage these misconceptions are reeking: war, economic inequality and environmental abuse are threatening our very extinction. 2014’s Virgo cycle concludes with Pluto stationing to turn direct on September 21st, the United Nations Day of International Peace. Between now and then we are being called to redefine how we think of and use our power. Courtesy of Mercury, we’ll also be given a cosmic emotional intelligence evaluation. At the same time, Mars will energize new pathways and possibilities. As noted in my article of 2010, the constellation Virgo is home to the mythological Goddess Astraea. She was the last Olympian deity to leave earth and its inhabitants as they plunged into their self-created darkness of greed, war and competition. She desperately wanted to help humankind restore the world to a perfect state. The cycle ahead will give us the chance to immerse ourselves in the thoughtful, healing essence of astrology’s altruistic sixth sign.

     In 2014, all three Mercury retrogrades involve the planet of thinking and communication moving from a water sign backward into the preceding air sign. The Pisces/Aquarius retrograde took place from February 6th-28th and the Cancer/Gemini one take place from June 7th-July 1st. The next one begins on October 4th with Mercury at two degrees of the fixed water sign Scorpio. By October 25th it will have traveled all the way back to 16 degrees of the Cardinal air sign Libra. This is important for the cycle ahead because Mercury will first reach 16 degrees of Libra on September 14th. If either of this year’s previous Mercury retrogrades effected you significantly or your chart is heavily influenced by Mercury, preparing for the next one now is a good idea. You can check your chart to see which planets and houses fall in the signs of Gemini and Virgo because both are ruled by Mercury. Also look to see where your natal Mercury is. If it’s in a water or air sign, especially Libra or Scorpio, you may be more impacted by the coming retrograde than others. But universally, water represents the emotions and air represents our thinking, so we can all benefit for this one.

     This year’s theme of bringing our feelings to the surface for analysis, review and revision is clear, and this final retrograde will give us yet another chance to resolve the issues our emotions call our attention to. To underscore the cosmic mandate to decode the messages that our emotions are sending us, this retrograde will take place during the year’s second set of eclipses. The first set took place in the midst of the Grand Cardinal Cross and during the last Pluto/Uranus square. This time, under shamanic Scorpio’s influence, our emotions are likely to feel their most intense, yet simultaneously the Libra aspect will be working to restore equilibrium and inner peace. Paradoxically, one of the clearest indications that we are actually on track is the experience of discomfort. Esther Hicks describes this energetic disturbance as a contrast wave, merely our awareness of what we want instead of the present reality we are experiencing. She says that once we understand that, we can appreciate its meaning and make needed the changes. One emotion that is particularly good at getting our attention is anger.

     Astrologically, anger is associated with Mars. The planet of war takes two years to travel through the zodiac, a cycle that correlates to our development. Can you say terrible twos? Much like the temper tantrums thrown by children, our conflicts need love, patience and wisdom. Instead of repressing anger, or any of the uneasy emotions, the cycle ahead is asking us to cradle them with the same compassion we naturally give to the innocent and vulnerable. Mars is also our inner call to action. Coincidentally the red planet will move into Sagittarius on September 13th, the day before Mercury hits the shadow point of its next retrograde, and it will be there until October 26th, the day after the retrograde ends. Hopeful, inspirational Sagittarius shows us possibilities. Symbolized by the Archer’s bow, the optimistic fire sign points to the horizon and directs us toward solutions. Couple that with Martian courage, energy and enterprise, and you begin to see the value in uncovering and clearing blockages while taking action toward your heart’s desires. To round out this Virgo Sun cycle, Pluto stations to turn direct on September 21st. Another source of celestial fuel, Pluto imparts the gift of transformation. It will be powering up as we head into the autumn. With fresh analysis and motivation, we can plot the coordinates on our map to a happier and more peaceful future. The celestial recharge begins now.

     “You now allow yourself to experience your power. Being powerful is safe for you, knowing that you express your power with love. You have all of the power of your Creator within you! All the power of Divine love, wisdom and intelligence is available to you. You have the spiritual power to see angels and the future. You have intellectual power to tap into the universal wisdom of the One Mind. You have emotional power to empathize with others, and physical power that is truly unlimited. The angels ask you to give them any fears you may have connected with being a powerful person. Your angels see a quiet and beautiful aspect of your true power streaming from the only power in the universe: Divine love. Allow yourself to shine with this radiant love, so that your true power can radiant out into the world in miraculous ways.” Dr. Doreen Virtue, Ph. D.

Sun Into Pisces 2014: Wade In The Water

      Sensitive, artistic and spiritual, Pisces is ruled by mystic Neptune and connects us with life’s enchanted side. Under its mutable, watery influence we gravitate toward the intangible and intrinsic. While its presence normally signals a time to slow down, take stock and prepare for the new astrological year, 2014 has several notable exceptions. First, for most of the cycle Mercury will be stimulating loads of mental activity from electric Aquarius. Even though the winged-one comes out of retrograde on February 28th, it doesn’t mellow out until March 17th when it goes into Pisces. Also on the retrograde front, Mars and Saturn begin heading backwards on March 1st and 2nd respectively. Mars will be in reverse gear through Libra until May 19th and Saturn will be revisiting Scorpion territory until July 20th. Other important planetary changes during this cycle include the lunar nodes moving to the Aries Libra axis on February 19th for an 18-month visit and Venus finally leaving Capricorn, after a four-month stay, on March 5th when it enters Aquarius. But the cycle’s most dramatic aspect is scheduled for February 25th when expansive Jupiter in Cancer squares erratic Uranus in headstrong Aries under a Capricorn moon. Part of April’s building exact cardinal cross. this is a titanic battle that will be waged on Neptunian seas. For navigational guidance, tune in. After all, source energy is flowing from integral, intuitive Pisces.

Full Moon March 16, 2014

16Mar2014

 

The Sun, and much later Mercury, join Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, and these planets will make several water trines to Saturn in Scorpio and Jupiter in Cancer. Significantly, many of these connections will occur while the moon also moves through the water signs. Emotional and insightful tides will run high on February 20th when the moon links up with Saturn and trines Neptune and Jupiter, the 23rd when the Sun conjoins Neptune, the 28th when the moon conjoins Neptune and the Sun and moon trine Jupiter, March 13th when the Sun trines Saturn and March 19th when the moon trines Mercury. Whether it’s smooth sailing or rolling in the deep will depend on our perspective, perceptions and intentions. And that’s where and when gifts of holistic Pisces come in handy. At its best, Pisces turns down the volume on distraction and static so that we can tune into a deeper awareness. Under its meditative and medicinal influence, we can get clear on what is truly of value and receive the guidance we seek. So, though this will not be a quiet Pisces cycle, it is one with ample space for reflection, resolution and release. Swim nicely!

 

Surfing the Psychic Waves, Art And Water Sign Trines

If your emotions and creative impulses have been surfacing a little more than usual since early October, there’s a good reason.  Back on October 5th Saturn moved into the fixed water sign of Scorpio.  There it formed what astrologers call a trine to Neptune, the planet of artists currently in the mutable water sign of Pisces. In a recent interview I did with radio host Kristina Walsh, we talked about these trends, how they put us in greater touch with our emotions, intuition and creativity and Jupiter’s entry into astrology’s third water sign of Cancer next summer.  If you’d like to learn more, you can listen to the interview here.  Btw, Venus made her way into Scorpio last week, deepening our connection to this watery wisdom.

Enjoy,

Sun Into Scorpio 2012: Eliminate To Generate

“Come to the edge,” he said.
They said, “We are afraid.”
They came.
He pushed them….
They flew.
– Guillaume Apollinaire

     Emotional, fixed Scorpio thrives on intensity and change, and the Sun will dive into its purifying waters at 5:14 P.M. PST on October 22nd. Material matters will surface courtesy of a full Taurus moon on the 29th and a total solar eclipse conjunct the lunar nodes on November 13th. A provocative full Cardinal cross will precede the Mercury retrograde that begins on Election Day in the U.S. Saturn and Pluto will begin strengthening 2013’s evolutionary Uranus Pluto squares. And, Neptune and Chiron, turning direct in reflective Pisces, will connect us more directly with our intrinsic truths. In the grand scheme of things, new dimensions and higher levels of awareness are opening up to us. To access them, we must journey through solemn Scorpio’s passageway.

     October 29th’s full moon in physical, security-oriented Taurus will be opposed by restricting Saturn and the willful Sun in truthful, transforming Scorpio. This super moon is connected to 2012’s Venus occultation, 2013’s Uranus Pluto squares and the lunar node placements lasting into early 2014. It is a call to strike a healthy balance between the our spiritual essence and material needs. It is also an opportunity to examine and release the financial fears that ironically limit us. Occurring two days before the Celtic holy day of Samhain, it is a summons to look within, reconcile losses and dedicate ourselves more fully to the spiritual work we came here for. This meaningful moon will receive a friendly trine from evocative Pluto in industrious Capricorn. Infused with this lunar wisdom and inspired by practical plans for the future, we enter a Cardinal gateway of Light the first weekend of November.

     Abundant Venus has two celestial abodes, and she will be residing in her harmonious Libra lair when the moon comes home to its native Cancer from November 3-5th. With Pluto and Uranus settled into Capricorn and Aries, the cosmic stage is set for initiation. If the full moon or Samhain/Halloween purging has worked its magic, then new offers and opportunities will begin materializing in early November. Discouraging unwisely impulsive decisions, clever Mercury will turn retrograde on November 6th. Lasting until November 26th, this transit will provide ample time for studying details and carefully reviewing facts and figures before moving ahead. And with the Messenger traveling all the way back to 18 degrees of probing Scorpio, deceit, abuse and deception will be exposed. Mercury, Saturn and the Sun are intent on clearing corruption and instituting the honesty and integrity now critical for planetary evolution.

October 29, 2012

     Mercury re-enters sacred Scorpio on November 13th, the day of a total solar eclipse. This new moon eclipse in Scorpio is conjunct the lunar North node. In general terms, the moon’s South node describes the past and its North points the way forward. The Taurus Scorpio opposition created here concerns resources and power. In late August the Nodes shifted into Taurus and Scorpio, where they will be in influence until February 2014. Here they will intensify the current Scorpio directive to fully integrate our spiritual beliefs with our economic practices and the care we give to our physical bodies.

     The “let go to grow” mantra being sounding now will be booming by the time we reach 2013’s Pluto Uranus squares. They will take place on May 20th, the final day of the Taurus Sun cycle, and on November 1st, in the midst of next year’s Scorpio solar sojourn. By then stern, structuring Saturn will be adding more of its considerable weight to the equation. The ringed-planet is after all Capricorn’s ruler, so it supports Pluto’s presence in the sign of pragmatic progress. Reciprocally, Pluto respects Saturn’s disciplined prowess in its home sign of destructive Scorpio. In short, Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio understand and mirror each other. In these placements, their energies are complementary and mutually fortifying. Mars will amplify their power when it moves through ambitious Capricorn from November 16th through December 25th. This is the fuel for setting and ultimately reaching conscious goals. The Sun’s coming placements in Taurus and Scorpio on the exact days of the next Pluto Uranus squares will reinforce the work we undertake now.

     Scorpion change is often dramatic, turbulent and obvious. By contrast, fellow water sign Pisces works more like waves upon rocks. It dissolves so subtly and gently that its influence is usually only recognizable over time. The planet it rules, Neptune will turn direct on November 10th as will healing asteroid Chiron on the 14th. Both are in holistic, integrating Pisces, the sign that also completes the zodiac. Thus the planets in these collaborating water signs are on message: release to regenerate. The Neptunian element here assures us that even in the midst of great upheaval, peace is always available. The boundless, artistic planet instructs us to turn inward. There we can center ourselves. From the void of a quiet mind, inspiration emerges. Aligned with its clarity, we know precisely which steps to take next.

“And now I see with eye serene,
the very pulse of the machine
A being breathing thoughtful breath
A traveler between life and death”
William Wordsworth

Sun Into Libra 2012: Dare To Care

The Sun will shift into harmonizing Libra at 7:49 A.M. PST on September 22nd, but this cycle’s main event will take place on October 5th.  That’s when lesson-baring Saturn will move from graceful Libra, where it has been since October 29, 2009, into passionate, purifying Scorpio.  The transit will last until December 23, 2014 with a retrograde revisit scheduled from June 14th to September 16th of 2015.  Before that celestial changing of the guard, we have some ideal aspects for brainstorming and another Cardinal portal of bright beginnings to travel through.  Also during the upcoming Libra cycle, active Mars will move into adventurous Sagittarius, mental Mercury will delve into intense Scorpio and artistic Venus will beautify service-oriented Virgo.  Joining Jupiter in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces, Mars and Venus will form more Mutable squares and oppositions, further encouraging release and renewal.

The Libra cycles gets off to a lively start when the moon moves into Cardinal Capricorn on September 22nd.  In alliance with powerful Pluto, the moon will square Uranus, the Sun, Mercury and Saturn through the 24th.  These energies are bound to stir us up and spur us into action.  Aligning our thoughts, words and deeds with high frequencies of awareness, the moon will next head into lofty Aquarius.  There, with the Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter in fellow air signs, it will beam rays of sheer brilliance to us through the 26th.  The last of Saturn’s transit through balanced, deliberating Libra will lend soundness to the ingenuity coming during these days.  October 8th, with its exact Sun Jupiter trine, is another five-star day for bright ideas.  Putting the wind beneath our wings, or lighting the fire under our arses, a full Aries moon is set for September 29th.  Rambunctious, pioneering and ever provocative, Ram’s irrepressible spirit will inform and infuse us until October 1st.  Much more than the mere turning of a calendar page, October 1st marks a turning of the celestial tide.  That week Venus, Mercury, Mars and Saturn will change signs and generous Jupiter will turn retrograde.  The most significant planetary shift is that of Saturn.

We are in the midst of a fifteen-year Pluto journey through reforming Capricorn and a three-year series of Uranus Pluto squares.  Their propulsion will be strengthened in 2014 when Jupiter traverses Cancer and forms more major planet Cardinal crosses.  And recently, on August 29th, the moon’s nodes shifted to the Taurus Scorpio axis.  It is into this eventful context that Saturn’s transit of Scorpio occurs.  I’ll be writing more about the implications of the lunar node shift in the Sun Into Scorpio edition of the newsletter next month.  For now, understanding more about the Saturn Scorpio transit is what’s important.  Because it has as many implications as it has interpretations, I highly recommend reading the work of many astrologers about this transit.

Its icy rings have been visible since 1610, and they’ve reinforced Saturn’s reputation as the planet symbolic of boundaries, discipline and limitations.  Saturn is astrology’s authority figure, and it teaches us to earn life’s rewards.  Scorpio, represented by the scorpion, snake and phoenix, is the sign of metamorphosis.  Amongst its many gifts are honestly, intimacy and death.  This is a call to truthfully examine ourselves, and to change.   For the next three years, each time an emotional button is pushed or a psychological issue is triggered, resolute Saturn will offer Scorpion medicine.  Blocks to intimacy can be revealed and healed.  Mortality is another Scorpion awakener.  In the gifted hands of the planet governing time, respect for death’s inevitability can help us live on purpose.  Sober, abiding Saturn will help us face and overcome the fears preventing us from living our most cherished dreams.  Immensely connected with the Neptune and Chiron transits of Pisces, this is cosmic transformation of the deepest magnitude.  Indifference is not an option.  For the resistant, this transit will be harsh.  Saturn is as inflexible and it is relentless, and in emotional Scorpio it will be intent on getting to the heart of matters.  For the hearts and minds bravely committed to personal and planetary evolution, this transit is alchemist’s gold. We can release all heart chakra blockages and experience new levels of awareness and intimacy. Our first treatment is scheduled on Oct 10th when Saturn trines Neptune.  The challenge for us will be to not deny that we care, but to fully acknowledge how dearly and deeply we do.

15 October 2012 New Moon

15 October 2012 New Moon

 

To gently usher in the beginning of this great change, the cleansing energies of the Mutable signs will be in evidence for the reminder of the Libra cycle.  With Jupiter in Gemini, Venus in Virgo, Mars in Sagittarius and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, each Mutable point of the zodiac’s wheel will be occupied.  Strong messages about what to let go of will be reinforced by Mercury’s presence in detecting Scorpio.  Dates to watch for these invitations to reflect and release include October 7th, 12th, 16th and 17th.  Saturn’s presence is Scorpio will add resonance to the clarity coming through far beyond this Sun cycle.

On the whole, the sweeping shift we are all experiencing is unfolding over many years, and the Saturn transit through Scorpio is poised to play a major role in it.  For now, the Sun is entering diplomatic, instigating Libra to initiate us for the life-altering sojourn.  It arrives here each autumn to start the new season and to remind us of our relationships.  Spiritual growth doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and Libra shows us where and how we can evolve through the people in our lives. Often reprinted at this time of year, the Prayer of St. Francis, elegantly expresses the wisdom and grace of this evocative sign.  This prayer also reminds us to get outside of ourselves long enough to support those we are blessed to have in our lives. Its essence activates a deep internal shift that moves our Light and love outward.  At a point of such tremendous planetary change, its transformational simplicity is well worth practicing. Happy Birthday Libra!

 

The prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace


Where there is hatred, let me sow love


Where there is injury, pardon


Where there is doubt, faith


Where there is despair, hope


Where there is darkness, light


Where there is sadness, joy

O Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console


to be understood as to understand


to be loved as to love

For it is in giving that we receive 


it is in pardoning that we are pardoned


and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life
