Neptune Direct, Jupiter into Capricorn - Clarity, Truth and Mastering Joy

We are still in the thick of Sagittarius Season, but there is big Capricorn energy heading our way.  Jupiter will be exiting its home sign of Sagittarius on Dec 2nd and entering the mature, responsible, determined, authoritative and masterful energy of Capricorn.  At its best, this is an opportunity to take the wisdom and truth we've gained through Jupiter in Sagittarius, and apply it to our reality (Jupiter in Capricorn).  We are being given the chance to grow something beautiful with deep, strong roots and hardy, fruitful branches over this next year.  With everything, the results depend on how we choose to exercise our free will. 

In other big news, Neptune stationed direct today allowing us to gain more clarity, to see the outward manifestation of whatever has been brewing internally for us over the retrograde in regards to Neptunian themes - spirituality, inspiration, humanitarian causes, compassion, empathy, intuition, boundaries, illusions, creativity, dreams.

New Moon & Galactic Center Activation in Sagittarius - Call to Adventure

This week is full of possibility and opportunity for consciousness expansion, a perhaps a few irritations as well.  Venus and Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) are passing over the Galactic Centre (the centre of our galaxy) this week, the Sun moves into Sagittarius on Monday the 25th and Tuesday brings us the New Moon in Sagittarius - A call to adventure or a pilgrimage in whatever area of the chart Sag occupies for each of us. Set your New Moon intentions based on the life themes that encompass the house this is happening in
for you.

Uranus in Taurus opposite Mars in Scorpio and inconjunct the New Moon, asks us to breathe through any irritations, not engage explosive tempers, think on our feet, keep an open mind, and not lose our cool if the winds change suddenly.

Full Moon in Taurus - What Are You Devoted To?

The Full Moon on November 12th, 2019 falls at 19 degrees of Taurus.  Taurus is a fixed earth sign connected to resources, survival, the world of the five senses, and material security.  Taurus is concerned with that which has form, and intends to establish a secure, comfortable place from which to enjoy the material world – this is done through focussing on what we value and recognizing and owning our worth.

At the time of this Full Moon, the Sun and Mercury are together in Scorpio, who is more concerned with psychological security, intimacy and transformation.
The Moon coming together with Vesta - Goddess of The Hearth, devoted to keeping the sacred flame burning, asks us, "What are you really devoted to?  What feels like a sacred calling?". 
Pluto, Saturn and Neptune are all lending support to help us begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel of transformation and restructuring we have all been travelling through, and to help bring our dreams into form.

Ceres into Capricorn - Offering Support in Uncertain Times

We have a few other events happening this week, Brave Souls, but I've chosen to focus on Ceres, the Earth Mother, moving into the sign of Capricorn.  Ceres represents the nature of our nurturing. She is akin to Cancer (and I also believe, Virgo).  She is about how we nurture others, how we were nurtured as children and what we need to feel nurtured.

There is a lot to be said about this transit, but as I see it, Ceres is coming to support us, to mother us through the chaos of the holidays, the dark days of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and the looming Saturn-Pluto Conjunction.

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio - Trick or Treat?!

Mercury, the Messenger God who rules communications, thoughts, ideas, self-talk, commerce and travel, stations Retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio on Thursday, Oct 31st - Samhain/Halloween. Mercury Retrograde wants us to slow down, pay attention, review, reflect, repeat, re-do, re-invent, reintegrate, recover, etc.  It wants us to plan and be prepared, to take care of the details, and to think before we communicate.  It asks us to turn inward to hear the messages.

This Retrograde is in the probing, intense sign of Scorpio.  This can be a time of profound revelations about what we have buried in our psyches, past traumas, insights into obsessions, compulsions, or fears we have hidden or are projecting onto others.  Secrets and hidden information can be revealed, we can have breakthroughs in intimate connections and our communications, thoughts, ideas are deep, intense, truthful and anything but superficial!
