This is a power packed Scorpio New Moon of resurrection and rebirth in so many ways. This is one of the best times go into retreat, seclusion, a yurt, cave or a safe womb space for 3 days if you can manage it. Especially on a Scorpio New Moon trined by Neptune in Pisces.

The Tarot Symbol #13 Death is the Sign associated with Scorpio

Jupiter on the 29th most critical degree of Scorpio, Sun and Moon are on the 15th most potent degree. Grand Water Trine and Neptune in Pisces trines the New Moon helps us to be magically in touch with spiritual guidance as Jupiter is the Master Teacher, and with our dreams. Dream deep over these 3 days. 

The Sabian Symbol for the 16th degree is “A girl’s face breaking into a smile.” Is about Faith and Action. 

This dark Scorpio Moon is perfect for setting new intentions of renewal, of recycling our soul’s desires, for pondering rebirth, of sitting in the dark, in the void for the 2.5 days of the New Moon. Venus has left Scorpio but will return again December 2nd. A lot is going on prior to and just after this New Moon. 

Uranus just Retrograded back into Aries on the 6th and the Nodes of Fate just changed signs into a feminine modality and the North Node is now in watery element of Cancer for the next 18 months.

Speaking of water, flow and emotions.

There is a GRAND WATER TRINE on the Scorpio New Moon

Jupiter at the very last fated degree of Scorpio trines Chiron the shamanic healer at 28 degrees Pisces and the North Node of the Moon at 29 degrees of Cancer. Flowing, healing, rebirthing.

Jupiter is opposite JUNO in Taurus conjunct ALGOL /Medusa squaring Mars in Aquarius. Jupiter and Juno are the archetypal Husband and wife. Juno is the symbol of Feminine genius. She is turned ON.

NEPTUNE RETROGRADE in PISCES squares the SUN and MOON.

This brings a dreamy, spiritual, imaginative highly creative, psychic energy to this New moon. Neptune can also add to a feeling of being lost in the fog. Many illusions, delusions and projections about everything are in the ethers. It’s a particularly powerful day to meditate, to sit in the dark to quest for answers in the depths of the Underworld. Ask your Ancestors to guide you. Scorpio is a feminine water sign. being receptive at a New moon is the thing to do. Everyone’s immune systems will be very sensitive for the next few days. Do be very careful of ingesting any intoxicants of any kind as well as pharmaceutical drugs. Fall in love with your own higher self.

DO: psychic detective work, very enhanced under a Scorpio-Neptunian energy. Use your x-ray vision to examine your own and others psychological shadows, for deep penetrating reflection and insights. This is an 8th house and 12th house energy, Karmic secrets will be revealed. 

bet you forget about that old angel Neptune being Retro, didn’t ya? It’ virtually standstill. Neptune turns direct November 24.

Mars is the ruler of Scorpio sitting at 25 degrees AQUARIUS squaring Jupiter 

There is a push for radical change and we have just witnessed the Democrats take over the House in the U.S. for the first time in 8 years. I didn’t realize it had been that long. I’m not an American. Also 100 women were just elected into U.S. Government a first along with 2 Muslim women, and two  Native American women.

VENUS Retro @ 26 degrees LIBRA conjunct CERES at 28 LIBRA squaring the Nodes of Fate opposite Uranus and Eris in Aries

These are fated time to choose between the EARTH, CERES, our mother and the superficial values, fashion, the status of Libra. We are all dependent on Mother earth who provides abundantly for all her children if Corporate Greed [Capricorn} isn’t putting all the money into the hands of the 1%. I just watched a great Documentary on Netflix on the Fashion industry and the blood of every person, mainly young people who buys ultra-cheap clothing at H& M and 21 Forever, Zara, Joe Fresh and all the Fast Fashion stores which is in every fiber of those cheap jeans they wear. We’re all dependent on Mother earth. Corporate Greed [Capricorn} and us are destroying the earth.

Mars in Aquarius has stirred up the rapidity of information and makes us restless for newness. But Venus still Retro and Mercury about to turn face too. Mars enters PISCES on the 15th bring us a watery reflective calm.

PLUTO the Modern ruler of Scorpio is @ 19 degrees Capricorn conjunct VESTA the Vesta Virgin Priestess and squaring VENUS Retro in Libra @ 26 degrees. 

We need to focus all of our soul desire into finding inner balance and releasing what does not serve us. Vesta is the root word of money, investments and preservation. What is the most valuable investment that you can make for yourself? Ask your soul this question. 

Athena Asteroid Goddess of wisdom @ 1 Libra squares Saturn in Capricorn and Chiron in Pisces

Women strategists take their place in the Government of the U.S. government now to bring healing and compassion. 

I originally wrote that neptune was square the new Moon but it is actually in Trine. Along with Jupiter North Node Chiron Grand Trine,

Straight shooting talk, Mercury in Sagittarius

MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS  October 30/31 until January 5, 2019

This post has nothing to do with advocating for guns and for the NRA. With the recent murders of Jewish people in the U.S. plus all the horrific and unnecessary shootings that go on in the U.S. it is time to legislate common sense gun control laws in America.  I am a Canadian and we do not carry guns in this country. The ability to print 3D metal guns in the U.S and in the world is now possible as well. This is an even bigger worry as the freedom of expression law is being pulled out to defend this.

It’s straight talk all the way as the communicator and trickster God of merchants and those who communicate and message a lot enters the 9th sign gifting us all with horse sense.

Mercury in SAGITTARIUS keywords: Forthright, honest, naive, inspiring, optimistic, adventurous, good-humored, preachers, animal rights, political activists, philosophers, teachers, spiritual, sage are all keywords.

It’s a good time to plan travels, learning and higher education of all kinds.

Mercury in Sagittarius influence makes us rather scatterbrained.

Mercury in Sagittarius is related specifically to the 8 of Wands in the Tarot, major Arcana card #14 Temperance and the King of Wands as ruler of Sagittarius in general 

You will be thinking about everything all at once and want to learn more and share knowledge. Mercury in Sagittarius sets your brain on fire and is openminded. Its a good time for doing yoga, studying religion and spirituality; Foreign languages, writing, publishing, finding a guru or teacher and connecting with like-minded thinkers. This energy will help you to search for higher meaning and truth. You will not be able to lie with Mercury in Sagittarius.

No Pinocchio stuff allowed Scorpios and Gemini. LOL

Be careful because of this energy as it makes us all a bit naive. Legal matters, sports and religion are all Sagittarius topics. Voicing your opinions on political and animal rights and education will be important. Be careful not to be preachy and hypocritical. Mercury in Sagittarius wants to be “in the know” about everything. 

MERCURY ASPECTS

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT November 16 @ 13 degrees 29 minutes Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces @ 13 degrees 42 minutes.

October 18 The moon is in Aquarius making light aspects relatively.

Tonight the five brightest planets align in the night sky. Get ready for an exquisite night sky line-up that you won’t want to miss.  

For the second time this year, the five brightest planets in our solar system — Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars — will be visible in the night sky at the same time.

The planets will form a line that rises up from the horizon in the western sky and it will be easiest to see after sunset this Thursday, October 18. If you do miss tonight don’t worry all month these planets will be visible in the same general areas of the sky.

This is a  great time to work with the energies of these 5 gods and goddess and the things they govern. Magical work by drawing down all the planetary energies will be especially strong and highlighted even with Venus Retrograde.

Mercury

Governs merchants, advertising, writers, poets, magicians, tricksters, and thieves.

How to survive Venus Retrograde. 40 days of resistance

This is the last day before Venus Retrogrades October 5 @ 12:04 pm PDT/ 3:04 pm EDT. 

visionary arts Napoleon Brousseau Toronto

 

Venus Retrograde Illustration oil painting by Napoleon Brousseau

Ready or not- Ready is a re prefix word. here she comes or goes.

For 40 days and 40 nights Venus which rules love, women, creativity, sex, money, beauty, values and balance will be undergoing a death and rebirth from Scorpio back to Libra the sign she rules and the sign of balance.

Venus keywords:  women, friendships, artists, finances, fashion, genitals, girls, money lenders, good taste, the throat chakra [Taurus} truces, weddings, actors, wages, etc.

Expect all relationships to go through a deep review.

Basically do all the RE- PREFIX HINGS. Everything that starts with RE is the modus operendi.

Resistance- women will be doing this big time.

Resist the urge to buy anything. Venus rules shopping. DO NOT CONSUME anything new for 40 days except food. Find out what you really need to survive. 

Renegotiate mortgages, finances and earnings.

Relocate, Yah move.

Remodel- your self, your home, your wardrobe.

Repurpose and recycle reuse, Scorpio is sign of recycling

Recluse- be a hermit go into the underworld with Venus/Inanna.

Reflex- use your muscle where you can.

I advised women to be celibate for the 40 days to reinvent themselves, to use their sexuality to nourish themselves. This is also a good weapon against the Patriarchy.

Old lovers will reappear, you must renegotiate terms and boundaries.

Reminiscing, reflect ,keep a journal of how far you’ve come.

Venus retrogrades in an 8 year cycle. Think back to where you were in 2010. 

u.S. Mid-term elections are on November 6 during Venus Retorgrade. Women will be a huge influence restraining the Trump administration.

As Venus turns direct in Libra hopefully we will be able to bring some semblance of balance back into our lives on November 16.

Sexual abuse #MeToo healing, Saturn Vesta conjunction

Saturn and Vesta’s exact conjunction September 27th @2 degrees Capricorn

Couldn’t be more timely with former comedian and actor Bill Cosby’s conviction for sexual assault Sept. 25. Saturn is Karma. Vesta symbolizes woman’s sacred sexual energy. This is a prime time to heal. #MeToo yes I have been raped. 

Vesta’s {Hestia in Greek} function as High Priestess is to focus on and tend to your sacred inner spirit-flame, your sexual passion and to keep it safe, strong and burning bright. Remember also that we are in a Universal #2 Year the Symbol of the High Priestess in the Tarot. 

The Vestal Virgins meant that these women were whole and complete and belonged to no man. They were sworn to celibacy and to focus their sexual energy and use it directly for spiritual connection. The Priestesses were able to recirculate their sacred menstrual blood and were able to conceive parthenogenically as Mary did with Jesus.

I believe and remember that as a Vestal Virgin these women served as Priestesses of the Goddess before the Patriarchal meaning of Virgin as abstaining from sex. These Priestesses were disciplined { Saturn’s rulership}  dedicated and devoted to their own purification of sexual energy enabled them, after years of focused work as Yogini’s to be so pure that they could perform magical healing feats by directing that sexual energy. 

Saturn rules discipline

It’s a good time to create goals of all kinds and to make a business plan and to create a disciplined daily regimen for yourself. Invest your energy in creating concrete goals on all physical levels- get your body in shape, your business tools, or website, and take care of financial planning.  Saturn rules maturity and ageing, think about where you want to be and the quality of life you want to have as you age. Remember your ancestors. Saturn governs reality. It’s time for a reality check to take stock of where you are at in your life in reality right now and to take responsibility for your karma.

This is a karmic reminder to reassess your career path. What is your passion and essence? Take stock of what you invest your time into with your physical body on all levels-what you eat, exercise, body care, distractions, lovers. What do you spend your time focussing on? Ask your spirit what it desires on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

Sexual healing form abuse

Vesta is the Goddess who guards the Sacred Flame, the spiritual focus and sacred kundalini Tantric sexual force of nature/ spirit. There is major karmic collective healing from sexual abuse which needs to be burned off now. Thousands of years of Patriarchal permission to rape and abuse women needs to be healed.  Start a daily or weekly practice to tend your own sacred flame. This can be creating an altar, a meditation time, or a practice where spirit, sexuality and your physical body join in unison.

Vesta rules Tantric healing sexuality energy. You can access this energy through sacred breathwork for yourself or with a partner. I’m putting together an article you can access on how to do this.

Saturn and Vesta remain in conjunction within 9 degrees until October 24th.

This gives us a whole month to really focus on a discipline of listening to our bones. Listening to our ancestors, listening to our body. The body never lies. Let your body soul and spirit guide you into making whatever major long term- Saturn is only in his home sign of Capricorn once every 28-29 years.

Then make the physical moves and changes to align with your spiritual essence, your kundalini flame first so that you can burn brightly once again.

Check out where your natal VESTA is in your birth chart to understand what fuels your sacred flame. 

I will put together a webinar next week. Stay tuned.

Hekate, the Witches Goddess

Quote

Hekate, Witches, Magic, women, Astrology, Tara Greene

Glyptothek [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons User:Bibi Saint-Pol, own work, 2007-02-08

HEKATE is the Goddess of Magic, Witchcraft, the Night, the Moon, ghosts and necromancy.  She is a Triple Goddess and is associated with three-way crossroads which were traditional places to make offerings to Hekate, called Trivia. We now associate this Great Goddess with “Trivial Pursuits” and things that are not important. Such is the desecration to her name and honour.

She is usually shown as a woman holding two torches or as a three-bodied Triple Goddess facing past, present and future. Therefore she would be a strong divination Goddess with oracular or prophetic powers. 

""

She assisted Demeter/Ceres in her search for Persephone in Hades, guiding her through the night with flaming torches. Hekate is a bringer of Light and consciousness in the dark times. After the Mother and daughter reunion, Hekate became Persephone’s minister and companion in Hades.

She was the only child of the Titans Perses and Asteria-who rules the Stars and she received her powers over heaven, earth and the sea from them.She bestowed gifts of wealth, victory, wisdom and good luck to hunters and sailors on the earth and sea and brought prosperity to youth and to flocks of cattle. But she also withheld these gifts if mortals didn’t deserve them.  She was the only Titan to retain her powers under Zeus’s =the Patriarchy’s rule- and she was honored by all the Immortal gods and Goddesses. She is considered to be a Virgin- “whole unto herself, belonging to no man” Goddess and therefore capable of parthenogenesis if she chose to have a child. 

Other stories relate Hekate to Brimo, an underworld Goddess whose virginity was lost to Hermes/Mercury on the banks of Thessalian Lake Boibeis. Her most important cult centres were at Eleusis place of the famous Eleusinian mysteries and the Island of Samothrace where she was worshipped as a goddess of the Mysteries.

Hekate, from the Greek hekatos, means “worker from afar.” The masculine form of the name, Hekatos is also a name for Apollon or Apollo.  

Hekate was identified with a number of other goddesses including Artemis, Selene-the Moon, and many other nymphs including Maira- the Dog-Star or Sirius the brightest Star in the skies and the Star which the U.S. sun is associated with. The U.S. needs a three party system not two. 

Read more about Hekate’s origins: http://www.theoi.com/Khthonios/Hekate.html

As we go into the darkest season Hekate is our Queen and Guide.

She is indicated as Asteroid 100 and she is presently at 8 degrees VIRGO exactly Sextile to Venus in Scorpio at 8+ degrees. Hekate also stands beside Asteroid Goddess Pallas Athena at 10 degrees Virgo. 

Hekate and Venus in Sextile helps us to access really deep places in our sexuality and in our souls. If you feel you are in a place of choosing between three options or feel overwhelmed with choices call up Hekate to light your way. 

Go to a triple crossroads or create a symbolic three-way altar. Make a food offering to Hekate.  Call upon her to bring you insight and light the torches in the darkness or dark times for you. She is very powerful. 

Check out where Hekate is in your natal chart at Astro.com by checking Additional Objects, you can manually enter 100 on the right side box.
