'Spring Snow' (Shunsetsu) by Takeuchi Seiho, 1942 {{PD}}

‘Spring Snow’ (Shunsetsu) by Takeuchi Seiho, 1942 {{PD}}

A little something for 26 October: Today’s image is a bird splashing in a puddle, even as it starts to rain. Is there some way in which we’re double dipping, in a way? Out of an abundance of caution or enthusiasm we can find ourselves over doing, in a simple attempt to make sure we get it done; we may not realize that, figuratively speaking, wet is wet–once we’re wet, we can’t get wetter! Mars moves into Capricorn today, helping us target action effectively–and hopefully eliminate any duplication of effort.

A little something for 27 October: we come to know the meaning of the old axiom, ‘Knowledge is power’; authority accrues to those who have access to facts and who understand how past development has lead to current conditions. Thinking, however, is decidedly independent of power concerns, and though this leads to a purity of mental expression and processing it also signifies, on the part of those who are mentally-keyed (natally heavy in Air), a susceptibility to follow an idea or place a concept on a pedestal that could have negative consequences for the personal empowerment situation. The saving grace, though, may actually be grace itself, an adherence to the ideal of Love in action that mitigates any potential negatives or losses. Ideals in Love or Money can be advanced and perhaps met; creativity, imagination, and integrity all pay. (Ceres enters Sagittarius, Venus trine Neptune, Mercury contra-parallel Juno)

And for 28 October: The Moon enters Capricorn at 3:04 AM PDT of the 28th. 5 AM PDT the Moon conjuncts Mars. Temper takes some very concrete avenues of expression, and upset may be taken out through material matters, if we don’t bother to hold back. With just a little effort, control of energy output can be both disciplined and productive. 10 AM PDT the Moon sits at the midpoint of Neptune-Pallas. Creative wisdom is channeled through the emotions and intuition; try to preserve what comes to you now, as it will be both inspired and smart. Noon the Moon sextiles Sun-Venus. We see illuminated either relationships or financial situations–and we understand them in a way that makes us sympathetic/ empathetic to their current state. 5 PM PDT the Moon quincunxes Juno. We can sense, rather than ‘see’, what we need to adjust in order to maintain or enhance our own power situation. Believe what occurs to you to do, as it’s the right thing for you, and is supported by sensitivity and instinct. 10 PM PDT the Moon conjuncts Pluto and semi-sextiles Vesta. Instincts to get and maintain power are right on, and we may be challenged by a destructive tingle aimed at anything we feel uncomfortable about concerning the home, family, or those things to which we’re dedicated. Consider the way you can change the situation that’s irritating you, rather than eliminating it or some aspect of it.

Paul Gauguin - Te arii vahine (The Queen of Beauty or The Noble Queen) 1896-97 {{PD}}

Paul Gauguin – Te arii vahine (The Queen of Beauty or The Noble Queen) 1896-97 {{PD}}

This year you’ll shine in relationships, in the wisdom of your choices and your guidance to others, in your acquisition and use of practical skills, in your ability to earn and to attract reward and positive attention–and you may have the most successful creative year of your life, dear Scorpio. Frankly, I’m jealous. In fact, a lot of people might be, and you’ll need to watch out for the way others’ petty emotions might interfere with your impressive and envy-inspiring trajectory. No matter how loving you are (and you will naturally radiate this, this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday) there’s always someone who wants to poke you in the eye; just know that the character deficit is theirs, not yours–at least that’s true right now. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!

Georges Seurat 'Port-en-Bessin: The Outer Harbor (Low Tide)' 1888

Georges Seurat ‘Port-en-Bessin: The Outer Harbor (Low Tide)’ 1888

Soul, heart, mind, and common sense are all in alignment over the coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Scorpio–but what does all that inner harmony bring you? Besides a magnetism that rivals the tides, you may find the mentality is burdened by a lot of ambition and an inability to think in a straight line–which means you can seem so wrapped up in yourself that you alienate others. The emotions in you run deep over the coming year, but may be kept under wraps, out of fear or a desire to suppress those feelings you’d rather not acknowledge; you may question your own motives and strength, and so may undermine what you could excel at, earning and lovin’. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!

Though you'll have the Midas touch when it comes to money, Scorpio, it's important to keep relationships in mind.

Though you’ll have the Midas touch when it comes to money, Scorpio, it’s important to keep relationships in mind.

Dear Scorpio, you embody the essence of Love this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday–or is that a big pile of gold bouillon shimmering all around you? You may have the Midas touch in Love or Finances, and the wisdom of Solomon as a bonus–so what could go wrong? The mind may feel like it’s been dipped in cement, and you could be so pre-occupied with your own ambitions, wants, and desires that there’s scant room for meaningful interaction with others. Too, a desire to understand your own emotional depths this year could make you come across as much more introverted than you mean to. There’s good news, though, in that the big philosophical questions you want to address will serve to shape your future Path–so there’s no way even the time you spend alone will be wasted–and don’t let your exceptional ability to attract attract attract go to waste, either. Happy Birthday, Scorpio, and good luck!

Der Zirkus - Georges Seurat {{PD}}

Der Zirkus – Georges Seurat {{PD}}

Welcome to the fun-house, Scorpio (if you’re a Libra born the 23rd, please see the Born Today for the 22nd). This year, through to your next birthday, may be one intense ride toward fulfillment of one or more of your goals–or at the very least, toward launching something important in your life. The good news? Your choices will be smart and likely result in reward or profit of one kind or another. The less good news? Reasoning may be flawed, which could set up problems for later (and consider that you may choose well but then delay success through poor planning). If you’re not working toward a material triumph of some kind, you may be called on (even forced) to devote a lot of time and energy to relationships, which may feel ‘new’ even when they’re not, making it all that much tougher to sort out. But, it will be an amazing year where chances are high Love or Money comes your way, and your creativity and ability to heal and make progress are tested. Happy Birthday, and good luck!

For a variety of individuals, this eclipse, at 00 Scorpio, may fall on a natal body, and for large numbers of people, it may fall on slow-moving natal Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto. For eclipse contact by conjunction, use no more than a 3 degree orb no matter which natal body or point is involved. Of course, this links the eclipse ‘New Start’ to the planet’s expression, but also to the House(s) ruled by the planet in the natal chart; watch the matters of this/ these House(s) over the coming 6 months, through to the next eclipse set. The matters of these Houses are where that wise and valuable beginning offered by this eclipse is likely to make big effects felt. Considering this event falls in Scorpio, we may be looking for a new beginning that is something of a resurrection or re-birth, an echo of what was in a new form. In any case, a beneficial birth, no matter the outer trappings it arrives in.

Have a wonderful eclipse!

Go ahead, Libra, live it up! 'Woman Holding Fireworks', India, Artist unknown 19th century {{PD}}

Go ahead, Libra, live it up! ‘Woman Holding Fireworks’, India, Artist unknown 19th century {{PD}}

Do you feel like you’re going to burst, dear Libra? Don’t worry, everybody does, since we’re coming up on a burst-worthy Solar eclipse. In terms of your Solar year, through to your next birthday, this schedules you for about two months of mild tension and confusion followed by a new start that is smart for you, brings positives into the life (financial, love-related, or just through expressions of what you value), and that holds the potential both to offer you some serious healing as well as the opportunity to master some unique skills that you have a genuine talent for. We also see the possibility for significant expansion of your world and just in general for ‘more’–which is the best argument ever for always trying your best and including as many good things in the life as possible–because you don’t want more of the bad or boring, do you? Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

A Little Something, Pre-Eclipse

There's nothing wrong with seeing yourself as a goddess, but you don't need to beat everyone else over the head to convince them; when you do, it suggests you don't really believe you are! 'Circe Offering the Cup to Odysseus' JW Waterhouse 1891 {{PD}}

Now through the 23rd: there’s a lot of passive-aggression going around of a very specific kind: many seem to feel the need to boast, brag, show their worth in whatever currency they value–this is going to last through the eclipse. Those conscious will focus on Love and raising the vibration (whatever that means to them), while the unconscious will give us an earful of how wonderful they are! or how smart, or how enlightened–and a good number of them will do it by couching things in what they see as ‘spiritual’ terms (or ‘important’ ones–again, in the form of their currency and what they value). My recommendation is to let them express unchallenged and without contradicting, because there’s an aggressive thrust behind things–these individuals will be willing to draw their swords in a heartbeat–and they won’t see you, they’ll see an attempt to wound their pride, disparage them, or to take away their goodies. Take the no-stress route and chill–and have a great day! (Sun-Venus at the rough midpoint of Black Moon Lilith-Mars, semi-sextile Ceres)

Get out there and do--you'll find something valuable. By N. C. Wyeth, from the 1911 edition of 'Treasure Island' {{PD}}

Get out there and do–you’ll find something valuable. By N. C. Wyeth,
from the 1911 edition of ‘Treasure Island’ {{PD}}

Reward, treasure, Love–whatever you want to call it–will be yours this year, dear Libra–but you’ll have to act, to choose, to decide to get it. What you do to earn it will, directly or indirectly, require a Sagittarius-flavored effort: learning or teaching, implementation of a life philosophy or the development of one by which to live, a reaching out to others, efforts to understand and/ or incorporate what’s foreign to you, religious ritual meant to lead to spiritual communion, or something dictated by the subjects ruled by Sag in your natal chart–you’ll know which one resonates for you–and the great thing is this opens up your capacity for instinctual understanding, offering a personal compass guided by your own deep connection to All That Is. But first, choose, decide, act. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!

Libra, you may feel alone, even in a crowd. Night Café at Arles, (Mme Ginoux) 1888 Paul Gauguin {{PD}}

Libra, you may feel alone, even in a crowd. Night Café at Arles, (Mme Ginoux) 1888 Paul Gauguin {{PD}}

You may feel strangely lonely this coming Solar year, through to your next birthday, dear Libra, no matter how much love, praise, or reward surrounds you–and you are slated for a good dose of that–it’s just that you will be grappling mentally and emotionally with issues of power, reach, and territory, and so may need to cultivate that sense of isolation, if only so that you can sort through and make sense of things. The best result of all this could be that you come out of this experience a leader, in one form or another, with a magnified sense of fairness and an enhanced understanding of power expression–and that should lead to some significant healing. Happy Birthday, Libra, and good luck!
