Entering the Scorpio Eclipse Season 🌚⚡








(S hemisphere below)


The Sun-Pluto cardinal square this week joins the tension lines with Mars, who is grinding to a halt. Add in the über fixed Saturn Uranus square and you have some challenging astro-weather. Squares are volatile, confrontational aspects that demand action. This is all hands on deck Astrology as we sail into eclipse season. Geopolitically there is a great deal happening as the various economies are starting to lurch and backfire. The US has put China under “chips” sanction that will all but require a response, while they advise their citizens to immediately leave Ukraine. They know that Russia is staging tanks, personnel and fighter jets in Belarus. This is a relationship flashpoint between individuals as well as between nations, and eclipses always accelerate things. ————————————————— Monday October 17

The 24° Libra Sun makes a trine to Mars in Gemini today. At its essence this is a harmonious linking between our will and desire natures. Adding in the modifiers of the social signs, this generates a spirited counter to the social problems created over the last few years. The pandemic response has definitely left us with a shadowy hangover that spills into society. There are a lot of divisions that were created that are not benefiting us in any way. Todays trine also incorporates Venus as she is traveling close with the Sun, adding even more social grace and spice to an urge to burn through blockages and false estrangements. Against the backdrop of the Cancer Moon opposite Pluto, emotions are riding high, so put them to use in service of healing and transformation of bullshit. Take the time to reach out to someone today who you feel estranged from. Lean into harmony and forgiveness, either asking for it or granting it.

Tuesday October 18 Things lighten up a lot as the playful Leo Moon trines Jupiter Rx who arrives at 0° Aries. In the north we are quickly descending into deep Autumn, while in the south you are ascending into the fullness of spring. Both buffer seasons are delightful, so enjoy.

Wednesday October 19 It’s a big day as the gorgeous Sun Venus Cazimi makes a dramatic and gothic square square to Pluto. This is a day where things, all things…will quicken in the direction that they are going, but this is a pretty gnarley vibe, honestly. Clashes may happen and creepy crawly secrets may be unearthed. The big hearted Leo Moon opposite chilly Saturn makes a grand cross with Uranus and the Nodes, activating sexuality and art, which are both good places to take all this intensity. Make either or both. Mercury opposite Chiron highlights primal childhood wounds, garnered from the relational dysfunction of your parents. We’re all here to heal.

Thursday October 20 We now contract into an earthy introversion under the Virgo Moon. The waning Moon agree s that it’s time for some yin time. Eschew the outer world and social gatherings and create a mini health retreat over the next couple days. The mutable Mars Neptune square creates a very sensitive and ungrounded frequency and some self tending is just what the doctor ordered.

Friday October 21 Continuing yesterday’s theme of introverted physical care, the Virgo Moon trine Uranus adds in the advice to learn something new about how to care herbally for one of your body systems that tends to get bogged down. Go into this new season armed with some new methods of tonic herbal care.

Saturday October 22 Last day of Libra emphasized the beauty way. The Virgo Moon opposite Neptune agrees and adds in some spicy shimmery magic, as they both square Mars. He needs some Venus time before his big debut near Samhain. Mercury in Libra trines Saturn in a mentally stabilizing and diplomatic aspect, as the Venus Sun conjunction coincided. Scorpio will continue the theme of relationship but in a Mars way. So drink deeply today from the chalice of Venus.

Sunday October 23 Today there is a pretty massive sea change as the Sun & Venus enter Scorpio, or shall I say “penetrate” Scorpio, as Mars’s nighttime sign is known for doing so effectively. For the next month, all things become more penetrating and we get a ticket through the underworld of release, death, and powerful rebirth.

Today the emo tide is fully in, as the Cancer Moon squares Mercury, sextiles Uranus, and trines the South Node. Old memories and nostalgia may arise like bubbles today, asking to be felt and remembered.

Mars reaches his station degree at 24 Gemini today, less than two weeks out from the start of his/our heroes journey. There’s no rush, no need to act frantically about anything, it’s take to take it as easy as you can.
