Entering the Void

It’s the time of year when you won’t be getting as much done as you might like.  Mars in Gemini is going retrograde on October 30 at 9:26 am.
 
Mars is the planet of action and when it goes retrograde it goes into a period of rest.  It doesn’t mean you won’t get anything done until it goes direct, but it will take longer to accomplish your tasks.  Maybe you need a break.  Let’s be honest, most of us need a break from all of the intense energy that has been happening.  The emotional upsets, power struggles, money issues, and self-worth drama.  It’s just been all too much.
 
This week you’re in the in-between phase between the Solar Eclipse (New Moon) on October 25 and the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) on November 8.  Hopefully, you’re releasing the things that no longer serve you and are moving with the energy.  It’s hard to change, but the universe wants you to go with the flow.  Don’t fight the energy.  It’s here to serve your highest and best good, even if it doesn’t always seem like it.  It’s a challenge when you don’t know what’s on the other side to roll with life, but you’re being asked to give it a try.  Just remind yourself everything you want is on the other side of fear.
 
There are a lot of lunar (moon) aspects that I won’t address this week, but it will constantly draw you back to this Eclipse energy.
 
On November 5 at 6:22 pm, Venus in Scorpio will oppose Uranus in Taurus.  Uranus is trying to awaken you and help you grow.  This is the latest aspect that is helping to guide you in this direction, but with Uranus, if you don’t follow the nudges, it will eventually push you.  You may become emotional as a part of this struggle or other people may be playing with your emotions.  Either way, keep this energy in mind as the week closes out. 
 
It's important during periods of high energy to remember your methods of self-care.  Could be meditation, Reiki, exercise, etc.  It can be a challenge to fit into your busy life, but it always makes you feel better.

Forward Motion

Finally!  Mercury retrograde is coming to a close and will station direct on October 2 at 5:07 AM.  Technology glitches and communications will begin to right themselves.  However, Mercury isn’t the only planet stationing direct this week.  Pluto will station direct on October 8 at 5:56 pm.
 
For the past few weeks, everything has felt like it’s been at a standstill while you’ve been revisited from your past.  What did your past reveal to you?  Are you headed in a new direction or are you still unhappy with the direction that your life has taken?  If you’re still not sure, don’t worry.  When the planets station either retrograde or direct, the energy becomes more intense. 
 
The North Node in Taurus is still asking you to grow and will be until July 2023.  Change is afoot and sometimes no matter how much you fight it, it’s easier to just go with the flow.  You won’t always know how things will turn out when you start them.  Sometimes you just have to take a chance. 
 
Mercury is back in Virgo until October 10.  Mercury is being analytical and practical right now.  Mercury doesn’t want to make any mistakes.  But life is all about the mistakes.  It’s how you handle them, that matters.
 
Pluto has been retrograde since April 29, 2022.  Pluto is the underworld or the shadow, but it’s also the power of transformation.  It’s how you can become empowered in your life.  Pluto in Capricorn has been changing the structures of your world and the world around you.  Pluto moved into Capricorn in November 2008 and will give you a sneak peek from March 24, 2023 to June 12, 2023 of Pluto in Aquarius.  It will enter Aquarius for an extended stay on September 3, 2024.  The collective is headed into these final degrees of Pluto in Capricorn.  It’s important that you lay the foundation now for the next phase of your life. 
 
You’re being pushed to make progress.  It’s time to start taking steps.  You have the option to go one step at a time, but it’s time for forward motion.

Aftershocks

Wow!  Last week may have been an intense one, but the energy hasn’t dissipated.  You’re still being challenged this week with some aspects.
 
Mars in Taurus will be Square Saturn in Aquarius on August 7 at 12:57 pm.  Mars is feeling frustrated by Saturn’s restrictiveness.  It can also feel overwhelmed at times by all the obstacles that seem to be thrown in its way.
 
Venus in Cancer is Opposite Pluto in Capricorn on August 19 at 1:18 am.  A lot of feelings have been coming to the surface over the last weeks or even months.  These aren’t feelings or issues that should be brushed aside.  They are leading you in a new direction.  If you ignore these revelations, it can lead to even more disruptive energy.  Relationships are intensifying. Things aren’t meant to be the same when Pluto is done with it.
 
The Sun in Leo is getting into the Uranus in Taurus action with a Square on August 11 at 5:53 am.  The Sun is shining a spotlight on Uranus’ growing impatience with the status quo.  It’s time to break free and allow the revelations to come to light. 
 
Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto aspects can seemingly change the world as you know it and have done it over the last few years.  Big reveals have come to light and you can’t go backward.  It’s time to be present and see what is meant to unfold for you.  You may want to know the future and especially with the energy in Taurus, control what that future looks like, but it’s just not possible.    
 
You are being guided in a new direction.  It may not always feel that way.  It’s easy to question what’s going on and why hasn’t it happened.  You did exactly what you were supposed to and look where you are.  Just remember it's not over yet.  You're still in the shake-up and things haven’t begun to settle back down.  Just be patient and do your best to go with the flow and deal with the repercussions.

Mind Games

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of mind games and right now, it feels like you’re involved in one great big mind game with the universe.  Mercury in Cancer is opposite Pluto in Capricorn on July 18 at 3:01 am.  And the Sun is opposite Pluto in Capricorn on July 19 at 9:39 pm.  The good news is that Mercury will enter Leo on July 19 at 8:35 pm and start to provide you with some mental clarity.
 
But for now, mind games are all around.  It would be easier if people could just come out and say what they’re thinking, but that’s not the case for most people.  The way each person communicates is different.  Some of us skate across the surface, just say whatever comes into our heads, or dives deep and wants to uncover every psychological element of what you said.
 
However, mind games can make even the most mundane of communication challenging.  Not only are you having to figure out why they said, or did what they did, but why.  Is there an underlying element to their words?  With Pluto involved, there’s always a wound or an opportunity for transformation and rebirth, but you have to deal with the wound first.  So before you get too frustrated or angry, try to look at the situation for a different perspective.  Why did that happen?  Does it have to do with you, or does it have to do with them?  What can you learn from this moment?  
 
Once Mercury moves into Leo, things will become clear and then you can move forward, but until then, try and fit the pieces together.  You’re being shown this mind game for a reason.  Mind games are never easy, but they provide us with an opportunity if you can take a time out and look at it from a different perspective.

Have You Been Doing The Work?

Have you been growing?  If you have, then this week should help you to battle whatever obstacles are standing in your way and reach new levels.  If you haven’t then you may experience some internal power struggles.
 
Mars in Aries is going to be Square Pluto in Capricorn on July 1, 2022 at 10:14 pm.  Mars in Aries is pushing the structures that you’ve been forced to confront with Pluto in Capricorn.  Those structures have been crumbling.  Things are no longer what they once were and there is no going back.  You’re in a new era and it’s time to accept that it’s different.  You’re different.
 
The energy wants you to change, it’s demanding change.  With this energy, you could push yourself a little too hard, so watch out for that dynamic, but it’s time.  Mercury has told you the secrets that you need to know so that you can make changes and move ahead.  That time for change is now. 
 
Change is never easy, especially when it feels like it’s been forced upon you.  It’s easier when you have a choice.  You always have a choice, but that doesn’t mean the energy isn’t going to have a say in the direction you take.  If you’re making a choice that the universe no longer agrees with, it will make it more and more difficult for you to make the same decision.  If you’re still not getting it, you could reach a precipice point and the universe will make a different decision for you.  We’ve all been there, getting fired from a job was one of mine.
 
I couldn’t see what the universe wanted me to see.  It was time for me to take a different path in my life.  It was giving me obstacles, but I kept finding a way around it.  The termination from my job was the universe forcing me to look at my choices and make a new one. 
 
It could be time for a new choice or a new path, but watch out for the internal struggles.  Those struggles may be telling you something you don’t want to hear, but it could lead you in the right direction.

Detour?

Are you ready to make a change in direction?  It’s full steam ahead.  The planetary energies are all direct.  Secrets and information have been revealed.  Now what do you do?  Do you change or remain the same?

Ultimately you have a choice to make.  If you decide to remain the same, the energy will be more difficult.  Something in your life needs to change.  It could be just a small tweak or it could be major, but the time to begin is coming.

There’s been a lot of stick energy the last few weeks.  I’m not ready to start that, but all of a sudden, there was a shift and it’s time for a plan.  Time to start.

You may be able to slowly work your way into your plan.  You have time to figure it out, but the time to begin is now.

There’s still a stellium (3 or more planets) of Capricorn in the sky.  You’re still rebuilding your structure.  What do you want your new life to look like?

Begin the visioning process and start laying the groundwork of what’s to come.  When the energy wants you to move and you fight it, it becomes more and more difficult to continue what you’ve been doing.

Who Would Have Thought?

Who would have thought? Just when it seems like things are coming together, something happens that makes you question. You can do everything right and still have what you were fearful of happening.
 
Some days it’s challenging to be an optimist. To believe that everything is going to work out. Life can make you question. Trying to live life on the straight and narrow, rarely happens how you expect.
 
Who would have thought almost 2 years in, we would still be in the midst of a pandemic. Right now at-home tests are a rare commodity and fakes are being sold. What at one point would have been a cold can now be COVID. With symptoms where you would have gone to work and worked through it, now you have to stay home.
 
Everything changed in March of 2020 and we’re still not out of the woods. Maybe the lesson hasn’t been learned yet. Astrologers are saying this isn’t over. More variants can come. We could face another shutdown. Look at the number of cases.
 
When will this end? It’s hard to say. Most pandemics historically last at least 2 years. Just remember life is a marathon, not a sprint. You can’t predict what life is going to throw your way.
 
Do the best you can each day. Do what you can to keep yourself and those around you safe. Take extra precautions if need be. We will get through this together.

What Are You Feeling?

Feelings can be a challenge. How might you ask? Feelings can be a challenge to not only describe at times but sometimes more important to express. Unexpressed feelings can just end us as emotions that are stuck with nowhere to go. Over time those emotions can build up and may even come out in unexpected ways.
 
Did you grow up with feelings being expressed? For most of us, I would say probably not. Expressed emotions tend to make people uncomfortable. Like they did something wrong or something that they want to fix but can’t. Even at events, such as funerals, where are emotions are more acceptable, you may still have trouble with others getting to witness you cry.
 
The first funeral that I went to was for my maternal grandfather when I was 17. I remember that funeral for many reasons, one of which being the Ice Storm of ’98, but the other was one that stuck with me for any funeral that I went to in years to come. My grandmother had lost her husband of 57 years and I never saw her cry. The word stoic has always come to mind. Now come to find out, it seems to be a trait amongst the women in that family. Feelings had a place and in public wasn’t one of them.  I don’t have any idea what she felt behind closed doors, again those types of feelings weren’t meant to be revealed.
 
In this period of time that we're in, right now, our feelings are coming to the surface. Things that you might never have known about are being revealed. They’re being seen in a different light.  There may have been long-standing issues that you’ve been working on and another piece of the puzzle will fall into place.  As you move through this experience, remember one thing. Allow your emotions to come out, even if you’d prefer, they stay hidden.  A little trick that I’ve used is to watch tearjerker movies and television shows to allow myself to cry.  I may be crying over something in my own life, but there’s something freeing in the act of allowing it to come out through watching a piece of fiction. 
 
The other reminder is if you have the opportunity this holiday season, tell someone that you love them. It can seem like life will last forever, but that’s not always the case.  You never know where life will take you and it can take people to places where we can’t follow.  It’s important to state how you feel when you have the opportunity.  You don’t want to look back years from now and wish that you would have said something.  You may not always get an I love you in return, but at least those feelings aren’t hidden inside.  Feel any feelings that are rising on the surface right now. It’s an important phase in your growth as a person.

It’s the Season of Light!

Some of you might think it’s too early to be looking ahead to Christmas.  I start decorating right after Thanksgiving, so I’m not in that camp.  The Sun moved into Sagittarius late in the day on November 21. For me, the Sun moving into Sagittarius signals the beginning of the Season of Light.
 
Sagittarius is a sign of wisdom, but also of hope and optimism. Something that you and everyone could use a little more of this year. The switch from Scorpio to Sagittarius is one where the energy can be felt. The release from the intensity of Scorpio is a welcome bit of relief. We’ve just given thanks for what we have, and the Sun doesn’t move into Capricorn until December 21.  For me, it’s the season of driving at night and seeing lights on people’s homes.  Just that alone can make the world seem like a happier place.
 
With everything that has been happening this year, it’s important to occasionally take a time out from the hustle and bustle and trying to figure out where you’re going and just be where you are.  To live in the present moment. To be optimistic, but not set in your ways, for how life could be. Maybe the world could agree to disagree and accept you and your neighbor for who they are. We so want to be right that we may have lost sight of what is true, or even beyond what is true, and acting from a place of love and empathy for our neighbor. It’s a hard standard to live by sometimes. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the goings-on of the day, but an ideal to hold nonetheless. 
 
So, during this season, when it can feel like consumerism has gone mad and every decision is about what you’re spending to show people that you love and care for them, maybe take a minor detour.  Spend time with the people that you care about and be appreciative of what you have. If life has taught us anything in the last couple of years, it is that life is fragile and can change in an instant. You can’t go back, no matter how hard you want to, and the future can’t be predicted. You only have this moment to do with as you may. Show the people that you care about how much and look to the light for answers.

What’s Rising to the Surface?

What emotions have been coming to the surface for you? Are you angry or sad or don’t know quite what to think?  The same thing keeps happening. It’s eclipse season and anything is possible.
 
The nodal axis is the process of switching from Gemini – Sagittarius to Taurus - Scorpio, from mutable to fixed. If you know your birth time, it’s a perfect time to see where Taurus and Scorpio lie in your chart.  What might be coming up for you? I’m a Gemini Rising, so Scorpio is in my 6th house (the house of daily life and health) and Taurus is in my 12th house (the house of hidden things).  The houses contain more than just this, but for simplicity purposes, we will keep it basic. Before the eclipses even start, you can start to see things shifting. My life is shifting from a focus on me (1st house) and my relationships (7th house) to what’s hidden (12th house) and my daily life (6th house). 
 
There are things from my past that I have kept hidden or didn’t know about that are starting to come up.  What has been keeping me blocked from moving forward? Where do I want to go and what is stopping me? My fears have always played the biggest role in stopping me. From the time I was a child, the dark and mysterious (Scorpio Sun) have fascinated me but stepping outside of my comfort zone and putting my trust in other people has held me back. There were a number of people that let me down and unfortunately for myself, I paid more attention to what they said to me than the people who showed me that they loved me and cared about me. For much of my life, I chose fear over love. I was too afraid to put myself out there and go for what I really wanted. In the last few years, I’ve begun to unravel that thread.  I started doing something with my life that I love. Not listening as much to what other people think about what I do, but there’s still more.  I’m having to allow people to get to know the dark and mysterious me.  I have to let people in and get to know me.
 
Like anything, this isn’t a journey that happens overnight.  It’s a process.  None of us are perfect. Not you and not me. There’s something that we’re all working on.  The question is, are you doing the work or are you allowing your past to control you? My past controlled me for a long time. More time than I would like to admit, but little by little, the past can be let go of. The emotions can be released. One day you can think about the past without breaking down into tears. You can appreciate the moments that make up a part of who you are. There may still be a sense that you wish you had realized it earlier, but it’s ok.  You can change today.
