Big noise this week is about the Sun leaving the deep, intense waters of Scorpio and bursting out into the wide open spaces of Sagittarius. I find this transition one of the most dramatic the Sun makes. It always feels like I’ve escaped one more time . . . though from what I’m not entirely sure because I do like Scorpio.
The last days the Sun is in Scorpio will see Mars in Virgo sextile Jupiter in Cancer. This is a quietly upbeat sextile combining Virgo efficiency [...]
The entire week is a build up to two major events – the fourth exact Uranus-Pluto square at 9° on November 1 and an exciting New Moon Solar Eclipse at 11° Scorpio on November 3. The fact is the two are inextricably entwined and the best way to handle this is to focus on building reliable and authentic structures in your life. Earth and water continue to be the dominant elements after all.
Our internal dialogues are far more important to our health and well-being than external ones with retrograde Mercury conjoining the Scorpio [...]
It is amazing what a difference having Mars in precise, earthy Virgo makes after the past month or so in brilliant, dramatic Leo.

Patient, exacting and service oriented are all part of Mars in the sixth sign.
One of the best parts of having Mars in Virgo is how easily it will harmonize with all the other planets from Jupiter on out with the exception of Uranus [...]
Most important shift this week is Mars leaving fiery, flamboyant Leo for quiet, precise Virgo on October 15. This will leave two planets in fire, Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, and only one in air . . . the Libra Sun. Earth and water continue to be the dominant elements asking us to stay focused in the here and now.
Most of this week is spent building up to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on Friday. Eclipses have a way of expanding their influence beyond the usual for lunations. The [...]
This is one of the most magical, powerful lunations of the year in my opinion and at 16° 01′ Scorpio on 5 May 2012, 08:35 PM PDT this Full Moon is no exception. Even though Earth always conjoins the Moon when it is full, if Earth is the ruler of Taurus it makes this a very special lunation indeed.
There is nothing ephemeral about the Full Moon in Scorpio. It is very real, passionate and deeply involved with life in the most essential ways – birth, death and regeneration. The old [...]
