The Month Ahead
As the Sun moves into Scorpio Saturday it conjoins Mercury and Venus, opposes the Moon in Taurus, and sextiles Pluto, Ceres and the transiting North Node in Capricorn. Our personal energy, will and vitality will be intensely focused in uncovering that which has been hidden, even as we keep our secrets to our selves. This is a time to shed light on our values and the ways we indulge ourselves by being extreme, possessive and withholding when sharing resources and power with others. While we consciously investigate areas and unearth material that needs to be eliminated or transformed, our inner emotional self may resist change and stubbornly cling to old ways. Yet eliminating and eradicating old, decrepit and decaying structures and systems in our lives is necessary before we can begin building new foundations and organizations which nurture and provide for all as we move ahead.
Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto represents power, intensity, and eruptive change. Pluto continues its slow 15 year transit in the sign of Capricorn. During this time, any Capricorn figures, institutions and structures that consolidate material wealth, power and resources will be subject to Pluto’s influence. Pluto will continue to unearth corruption and decay in our economy, specifically in the banking, housing and insurance industries. As we sift through the ashes of the old systems that are crumbling, we have an opportunity to eliminate that which is not honest, responsible, and in integrity. We are reminded that Capricorn responsibility is the balance to Plutonian power.
As we observe events in the outer world, it is important to look within and recognize the parts of ourselves that are also degenerating and need to be eliminated or transformed. This is a time for us to eliminate immature parts of ourselves so that we may be spiritually reborn as wiser, more responsible, self-reliant individuals. Rather than give away our power and authority to others and then resent them for it, it is time to reclaim our own power as a wise, compassionate Spiritual Father to our self. Use self-discipline in exercising your power. Be honorable and respectful of others.
Samhain on Sunday November 7th
Halloween has its roots in the Celtic celebration of Samhain, which marked the end of the harvest season. Samhain was believed to be the time during the year when the veil between the living world and the world of the dead was the thinnest. In other cultures it is a time when ancestors and departed souls are remembered and honored.
Samhain is celebrated on the day the Sun is at 15 degrees Scorpio, or half way through its transit of this sign. This year Samhain falls on Sunday November 7th. You may wish to mark this day spending some time in meditation. Going within, honor those that have passed over, or perhaps parts of yourself that have “died” so you could be reborn.
New Moon in Scorpio
A New Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon conjoin overhead from our perspective on Earth. This represents the fusion of our outer consciousness and awareness, symbolized by the Sun, with our inner emotional and unconscious self, symbolized by the Moon. This is a fertile time for new beginnings, for sowing the seeds of your new projects and endeavors.
The next New Moon will occur on Friday November 5th at 9:52 p.m. (PDT). This New Moon will be at 13 degrees Scorpio, sextile Juno in Virgo and semisextile Saturn in Libra. This is a new opportunity to focus our collective will with passion and intensity so that we can refine and improve ourselves and be of greater service in the world. The intensity and drive of Scorpio feels incompatible with living a balanced life. Find new ways to use self-transformation to create more harmony and balance within yourself and in your relationships.
The area of your astrological chart where 13 degrees Scorpio falls represents the area of your life where you can consciously create new beginnings that are powerful, penetrating and transformative. Set aside time to reflect on how you can create new beginnings in the areas of shared resources, mysteries and spiritual regeneration. What emotional ties and issues around control do you have with others that need to be examined and purified? How can you transform obsession into personal power and courage? How can you reclaim your intensity and passion for life?
You may wish to set some new goals or create some Scorpio affirmations on November 5th. Examples are: “I penetrate into the heart of the matter with controlled intensity, using my inner strength.” “I transform myself with evolving self reliance.” “I release old toxins so that I may regenerate anew.” “I face my Shadow, probe its hidden depths with insight, and reclaim my personal power.”
You will begin to see evidence of the seeds you sow on this New Moon as they come to fruition on the following Full Moon in Taurus on November 21st. This Full Moon will reward you with ease, serenity, and a greater connection to the earth through your senses.
“Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.”?…… – Seneca
