The eclipse is behind us. Venus has conjuncted the Sun, setting in motion a transmutation of values, and of ways and whys of loving. Mercury has changed direction. And for four consecutive days, the Sun has sent massive amounts of starstuff into the solar system from a sunspot as big as the planet Jupiter.
Signals from the Great Mystery: Luna in Sagittarius
Today, as we slowly begin to re-orient ourselves, Luna moves through Sagittarius. Early in this day, she aligned herself with the mysterious potency of the Great Attractor, that’s calling our Milky Way Galaxy and hundreds of others home. Now she’s closing in on the Galactic Center, where our Sun and almost all the energy in our solar system was birthed.
Between now and then, your own realm of lunar wisdom is picking up signals from the Great Mystery and integrating them into your emotional intelligence, your creative intuition and cellular awareness, and the wisdom of your dreams. Within you and around you, the entire Universe is communicating a multi-dimensional mystery straight to your heart.
You’re between the Scorpio eclipse and another great halfway mark — the midpoint between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice. From Egypt to Mexico to the lands of the Celts, ancient teachings tell us this is the time when the veils between the worlds were at their thinnest. In the days ahead, you’re drawing closer and closer to the deep, mysterious core of Scorpio season. With soft, urgent insistency, the fathomless heart of reality is speaking to your soul.
On the Border Between Realities: Mercury Turns Direct in Libra
The Messenger has come out of retrograde just in time to guide you. He’s in Libra, the sign of relatedness that belongs to Venus. This week, he’s reminding you of the first, primary relationship, embedded within all others: it’s the one between the visible reality on the surface and the invisible one that lies beneath it.
The detached and slightly impersonal frequencies of Libra can help you find your way — for this sky is far more watery than it was just 5 days ago. You’re in the fluid, receptive realm of emotion and intuition now.
Venus too is reorienting. She’s only 2 days past her transmutation in the vibrations of a Sun who was himself in the midst of a series of off-the-chart eruptions. It will be just over 6 weeks– less than a week before the Winter Solstice. before she rebirths herself in Capricorn. Within you and around you, she’s changing. Though we can’t see her in the sky, she’s now on the front lines of the transformational process — all around you, and deep within you. What and why and how you love is in in the midst of metamorphosis
Yesterday, she attuned herself with the Oneness, receiving strong, positive support for her metamorphosis via a trine with Neptune, the Dreamer and Mystic. One more merger awaits her before she leaves Scorpio. On November 18, Venus will conjoin Capricorn’s ruler Saturn, the Manifestor. The ancient queen of heaven is swimming in the deepest of waters now. Three weeks is a short time in which to have the most intimate of encounters with the energy of both formlessness and form.
The Mysteries Where Time & Matter Intersect: Mars on the Solstice Point
Capricorn is where Mars, the greatest of Venus’ cosmic lovers, has just arrived. In this zone, the great mysteries of time and matter intersect. When experience turns into wisdom, it’s because of what happens here. Though Mars will have (just) left Capricorn by the time the Sun arrives at the Winter Solstice Solstice point on December 21, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto will all be waiting — and the 6th of his 7 world-changing, life-changing squares with Uranus will have taken place just a week earlier.
Today, the Cosmic Warrior is in the final minutes of the the first, dynamic degree of Capricorn — the Winter Solstice degree. After his fiery, once-in-a-million years’ initiation from Comet Siding Spring, as he aligned with the Galactic Center, Mars is grounding himself. For the next 5 weeks, his passion will be directed — within you and around you — not towards questing for truth, but towards manifesting the wisdom you’ve discovered. While Venus rebirths herself in the invisible sky, Mars is reshaping the bedrock of your life.
