Practical Magic for Soul Liberation

Astrology for November 4-10, 2020

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

This week is a bit like being in suspended animation. Waiting for what will happen next. As Tom Petty sang, The Waiting is the Hardest Part. Mercury Square Saturn makes for potential doom and gloom thoughts, difficult, serious and laborious communications. Venus opposite Mars makes for some relationship tension and a clash of values.

The Moon will move through the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer over the next few days. As she does, she will make contact with all of the planets currently in Cardinal Signs (Chiron, Mars, Eris, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn) and a Cardinal Grand Cross with form. It's like we're being catapulted into the future. Wherever this cross forms in your own chart, will be the life themes in tension - something you've been experiencing the whole of 2020. The resolution of this tension (with or without your participation) will be the catalyst for the next phase of your life.

Astrology for October 28-Nov 3, 2020

Halloween/Samhain/Taurus Full Blue Moon - The Kramer Effect

The Halloween/Samhain/Taurus Full Blue Moon is a zinger. The Moon, although exalted in Taurus, will be met with Uranus, the disruptor. The effect here is like Kramer (from Seinfeld) busting through the door with some shocking, liberating, unnerving, absurd news. Mercury Retro in Libra, is in a tense conversation with Saturn in Capricorn during the time of this Full Moon. Think, difficult conversations, somber news, slow results.

Asteroid Juno, Eris, Lilith and some other celestial bodies connected to the feminine principal, also play a role. Suffice it to say, women and issues surrounding women is and will continue to be, a signature of this time. Later in the week, the day of the U.S. election, Mercury will station direct in Libra. So yeah, there's that.

Libra New Moon - Between A Rock & A Hard Place

The Libra New Moon on October 16th @23 degrees of the Cardinal Air Sign, is a powerful initiation. Sandwiched in a square between Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, and opposite Mars and Eris in Aries, we may find ourselves between a rock and a hard place. 

We must all channel our inner Libra to navigate these turbulent skies. The good news is, if we keep the faith, our integrity and our balance, we may find ourselves assisted by the hand of divine grace.

Astrology for October 21-27, 2020

Scorpio Season - Be The Phoenix

Enter, Scorpio Season (cue spooky music). As the Sun transits the murky depths of the fixed water sign, it will draw our attention to certain themes (depending where Scorpio sits in our chart - we ALL have Scorpio somewhere).

We are encouraged to dig deep in this area, look at the details with eagle eyes, compost what has served its purpose, and make preparations to rise again like the Phoenix from the ashes.
As the Sun in Scorpio eventually opposes Uranus and the Moon in Taurus (on Samhain a.k.a. Halloween), we may be surprised at what's illuminated!  Lots more on that next week.

Astrology for October 7-13, 2020

Mercury Retrograde Opposite Uranus - Bazinga!

This Week, Mercury and Uranus engage in the first of three oppositions. Twists, and turns, jolts and surprises, and ideally, huge creative leaps, insights and revelations are on offer when the planets of the higher and lower mind face off. This opposition, is a signature of the Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio (and Libra). A period spanning October 11th to November 3rd (not including the shadow phase).

To add another layer of intensity, Mars in Aries Squares Pluto in Capricorn on October 9th. One more chapter in the Clash of the Titans epic tale playing out this year.
