Venus has entered Taurus! She loves being there. Such a way with expressing love she has in this sign. The earth mother really comes out in all of us if we allow it to. Taurus likes the finer things in life, such as silk, comforts of good RICH foods, and fab art, and a golden voice. So we can invite into our lives, a bit of pleasure in the joys of indulgence for a few weeks.
Affection, blowing kisses, and romantic love; the eyes will be looking for it! Venus lined up with Uranus on the 28th of March, and that is a love at first bite aspect. The climate is ripe for sudden falling in to smittenville.......That line up happened in the last degrees of Aries...and the new moon on April 15th will be at that same degree! This means a promise to research further ~love possibilities.
But it's not limited to love, Venus and Uranus together throw open the door of "out there" and progressive creative energy. Even though the aspect happened the last week in March, the New Moon in April is the trigger date. So pay attention to what comes to you mid- April. Don't fret about taxes - as at least Mercury will be direct by their due date! The messenger turns direct on the 15th too! (taxes are due by the 17th - I'd wait until the 17th!)
Other exciting news in April is that on the 2nd, Mars in Capricorn will lock up with Saturn! NO SMALL DEAL. Heels get dug in. Saturn rules - RULES, and Mars just runs over everything in its way, so some rebel energy is happening in America. By the 22nd Mars will be hanging with Pluto. I'd like to keep it positive- but Mars and Pluto usually mean - WAR. Let's hope that some of the higher vibrations are manifested - and the war is done within the self, digging out the bad stuff - such as power trips, and ego over load.
Saturn turns retrograde on April 17th- so we will likely see the General (Kelly) leave Washington. As a matter of fact, there might not be anyone left there by the end of the month! Or at least the shake up will continue. More drama.
We have a blend of Aries and Earth energy for most of April- that is good for building a fire that keeps you warm. Best way to do that is to ground yourself in reality. What is the truth about your life right now that you are happy with? Add to that. Look around and find the goodness that is there. Plant a garden. Go out in nature and listen to the birds. Sometimes the simple things in life are forgotten and they are really what helps us through strange unbalanced times.
You have to train the mind to find the inner light. This light only is noticed in silence. So give yourself the gift of LISTENING to the inner voice, then, you will manage no matter what the astrological weather is. This inner voice is sometimes called the "cosmic eye". It's seeing what isn't seen with the iris. Its the eye between your brows, that is the REAL seeing. Times like we are in, require that you see with this eye. Its the all knowing energy that makes the life full and happy in spite of troubles. WE all have karma to pay off, but by triggering open your cosmic eye- you'll find where the green lights are and fly forward!
Meditation is a great form to develop the inner eye. So is any discipline that requires undiluted focus. Spend some time researching this for yourself while Mercury is still retrograde. Discover for yourself if it is true or not.
Mid- Month when Mercury turns direct, all systems will be saying- GO! NOW!.... and it will be time to certainly experiment with new path, new ways of seeing, and a make over for yourself.
So, look around and find the joy, look inside and find your wisdom. Look everywhere ! Leave no sight unseen or untried this month. Its a month that screams- EXPLORE! But do so with firm footing.
Be like the child that is forever curious.
The Universe awaits your searching. All eyes are on you!

Pisces - finding the waterfall of peace
Pisces. Water. LOTS of water. Mystical knowledge, that which can't be seen or really spoken about, but is felt. Divine voice of a whisper, that engulfs the soul, where you feel only oneness.
That is one aspect of Pisces energy. It is offered to all, and many THINK they have found it- in drink or mind altering drugs....but the true waterfall of peace comes via grace and you have to be very aware to open the door in your super mind (beyond the chatty mind-the no thought space) to allow it in. It doesn't give a calling card, or notice when it will arrive. One second it is not there, and then, it is, and once you've tasted it, nothing- NOTHING is as blissful. It can arrive in odd ways...and for me the experience of a "waterfall of peace" came in an ashram in Southern India, and it was sheer grace. I will never forget the washing of oneness that came without even asking. It is like none other. It is not attached to anyone, or anything, it is our true nature.
This man speaks of it:
His talk reminded me of my own "waterfall of peace"...... I wish everyone to know this feeling of divine freedom and pure joy.
Right now we have the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Chrion and Neptune all hanging out in Pisces. Seems like a good time to write about divine bliss. It can visit when you get real close to your very self, and listen to that higher voice. Sometimes it descends upon you~ because divine does what it wants!
The world is in much need of healing now. And what better way, than to fly within to your center of being and connect to the divine freedom of gliding ....... in music, art, dance, or on the ocean, or climbing a mountain, or staring at a colorful fireplace keeping you warm inside and out. Each and every time we invest in getting quiet with the self, and have a dialogue with our best friend, that never leaves- (YOU) then when you have that kind of relationship with yourself, you can make space for choices that lead to the path of peace.
America needs some rest, peace and comfort. We are in the middle of a learning curve, and many will not get or join the shift. But if you wish to graduate beyond school shootings, forever shopping, and closed minds...Pisces is calling you....... get centered, and make a pack to discover what will take you to the waterfall of peace. I know one thing, sometimes you can't really say what will bring it or when, but you can check off what ISN'T inviting it and eliminating that from your life. That is a good starting point. In India we say- "Neti, Neti".... (not this, not this).
Another great thing Pisces is about- is compassion.
So- if you feel inclined- you can send a card to Stoneman Douglas High School, and support our brave teenagers, and teachers, who have been through a war zone.

I am sorry to say, that it looks like the battle of the AR-15 is going to continue, deep into Summer.
Mars rules guns, and this year, Mars goes retrograde this summer for several months. The retrograde period will begin in June-26- @ 9 degrees Aquarius. It will last until late August @ 28 Capricorn.
Retrograde means REVIEW.
America's women are going to be a force to be reckoned with. I mentioned this in the last blog.
The gun laws will change, but the heart has to change too. A country that loves a killing machine more than its citizens is in deep trouble. Hence, the best thing you can do-for yourself and your country, is reach that place inside that speaks to you of peace, and share it.
May Peace be upon you.

LOVE and Eclipse Season
Credit were credit is due: Artwork: Tessla Queen.
Leo Full Moon- which happens to be a Total Lunar Eclipse and wow wow wow, bloody red, if you saw it in the early wee hours this am on the west coast. I didn't ... it woke me, at the hour of bird song, but I only managed to look half -hearted for it out the front door (instead of the back, where it'd be).... and then returned to the warmth of my covers. Said my internal prayers and found it within.
That's what we have to do, now that its over..........(its never over~ just not 'seen').... we have to gather its juice promised, and forge forward with this pumping blood heart of our own.
Eclipses stir the pot. They conjure up dreams and hope and wishes, and they release worn out stuff. Or they 'allow' for the release to happen. You can hang on to a thought, idea, person, place, job, etc. until your dying day, but the eclipse's job is to help you see where you've out worn your stay...when they are total lunar ones. They speak the language of - 'what's new?' 'what have outgrown?' 'where do you need to move forward?' and most important- "WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?"........Full moons by nature always ask that we let go of something. Some 'light' is shed on what we didn't 'see' before. Now, its in clear view.....so we can decide. You see, the planets and lights- don't make things happen, PEOPLE do. But they can give details, and shower you with a feeling that maybe it is time to ACT. They encourage you to look in places you've ignore. They help you to see what needs to go to make space for what might have more meaning to you now. Or where an adjustment needs to take place in your behavior. Sometimes, its just a tiny seed that you see. You have to water it, feed it, tend to it, and watch it grow into a bountiful tree or flower giving off a food or scent. other times for various reasons, it doesn't take root. You still have the effort you made as a learning experience, that can be added to your resume and lead you down another path. Nothing the universe gives us is in vain, and all is very complex if you desire to dig deep enough; ECLIPSES INCLUDED.
Every eclipse is followed by another one... full moon (lunar) is followed by new moon (solar). This year we have FIVE. In the Summer we will have a series of three. Solar, lunar, Solar.
Today, we are just going to explore the two that right upon us.
This Total Lunar Eclipse fell on the degree of 12 Leo. Where this falls in your birth chart holds key to where you can expand and contradict. The axis of Leo/Aquarius is one in which the ME vs Humanity is at play. What is your role in the entire play of the big production that is called- "your life"~?
How involved are you in your staring role? Have you given much thought to it? Or do you lazily go about your job, not much interested in how it effects the other players? You see, this is a give and take sort of combo. Aquarius is very much about the social masses and Leo is about- well- ME. But without the masses - there is no paying attention to ME! The audience is a needed part of the production. Ignore it at your peril.
Soooooo, do you play to the audience, or do you try to win it over, or do you just go solo and sing in the shower? How much of you do you give to the we? Its never going to be a 50/50 thing. That's in some book or 1950's movie, but it's not in real world relationships.
Sometimes you give 60 sometimes you get 80. Its always changing. What the eclipse needs from you - is review and reassessment. Adjustment to the relationships that help make up your life. All of them. The most important one is how you relate to you. Every one that follows, will be a mirror of that.
Of course, everyone is born with certain karma's that will and must be met. Karma is not good or bad. Its your attitude that makes it so. But no one likes to struggle, and the universe wants you to be the best you can be- TO BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE.
So along comes the eclipses to push you a bit further, and have you reach for that which is slightly out of reach! And if you make the effort, it rewards you. The reward that it is best known for is- "SELF-CONFIDENCE"... and then we get into the realm of Aquarius...which is what to do when you've grown-? One option is helping others grow! So we all end up growing !!!! It doesn't matter what you grow, but whatever it is, do it with heart.
This is the point of relationship. To help each other grow.
LOVE= learning to expand and giving space for others to do so.
Friendship is a main quality of Aquarius. I've always felt that the best relationships must have a component of friendship in them to have a long shelf life. This includes nations.
The Leo lunar eclipse has Venus right next to the Sun. So love is playing a huge role in how we shine these days. The ties that do not have the thread of love pulsing through will not flourish. And change they will and must. This could be going to a job you hate, and finally, saying -not going to to this one day more! Or it could be waking up to what humanity needs and volunteering to help achieve that goal. The main factor is what has heart for us in the day in day out of our lives. Where is the love in your life? How to GIVE more to that! (did you notice I did not say- how to GET). The Leo energy wants the love, but the love will come by giving.
In 1999 we had an eclipse in this exact degree. Reflect back on that time period, what revelations you came to then, and if they still have value to you now. Can you build on something? Is a next stage appropriate? Did a cautionary tale happen back then? Did you learn ? Don't repeat a bad situation- change it. If a cross road is about to happen, use the time to make a healthy choice.
In two weeks we will have a Solar Eclipse at 27 Aquarius. The 15th of February. Day after Valentine's day. Ummmmm.... love day.
Is it over? Has it just begun?
Perhaps its in a new phase and is thirty years strong!
The Solar Eclipse falls on America's Moon- EXACTLY.
The "female" is rising to a new level of opportunity. Do not even think to standing in her way, as to do so, is to stand in your own way. As she grows, you grow. Everyone has a female side, even the males in our world. Yin and Yang are interwoven. To deny one or the other is to not embrace wholeness. We are stronger as a community, as a world, when we share both.
Solar Eclipse is - A NEW MOON.... what needs to begin ? How can I invite ALL into my circle? What groups do I wish to join ? What group do I wish to START?????
As of late- we have seen much - 'us vs them'.... there is no room for that. And it will be dissolving. You can either come aboard the mighty ship of humanity, or you can sing solo on a wooden plank in the middle of the ocean- ALONE. I think the party of all is where its at. And within the new group- there will always arise a leader..... and we start the process all over again, but with a new view, one of:
Individuality AND Humanity.
With them both- if you seek to share/find love, you have found the humanity in the individual, and the individual has love for humanity.
Then the world heart is pumping love.

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a mercedes benz...
Quality over Quantity. Blue chip verses....everything else. We are in Capricorn territory. Make it to last.....make a lasting impression....the last one standing wins...this is Capricorn thinking. And its with us now, as the Sun, Venus, Saturn and Pluto are all lined up with good posture. Jan 10th will see the line up lengthen with Mercury marching to the old goats tune....and in your head...expect a more serious tone to emerge. Great for writing the never ending novel. Something rather dark and serious, comparable to "Les Misérables".
These are serious times! Make no mistake about it. Dry humor is the antidote.
The New Year will begin with a bang of awareness! The haves vs the needs.
2018 begins with a FULL MOON at 12 degrees Cancer.... conjunct America's Sun! CHANGE is COMING! It just might not rattle in your pocket... it might be the sound of bells and whistles asking that our leaders discover a more nurturing approach to governing.
Housing is a screaming issue all across the country. It will not go away. This full moon highlights the need, the profound need, for affordable food, shelter and clothing. Capricorn is about the basic needs. Bare bones. A potato a day sort of thought.
Cancer energy is a mothers home cooked meal, her very breast for a baby...can you imagine a world where a baby is denied that, and it is sold to the highest bidder instead?
What do you need to make yourself feel secure? What can you do to strengthen your position? Saturn is the big heavy, but also the one who hangs in the game until winning is happening. Saturn is going to make us all understand the meaning of the word: endurance.
And endure we can, with a little help from Mars and Jupiter. Both in Scorpio, who is known to strike down a cobra with a mere stare, transfix the reptile into a motionless hood ordainment. All things being not equal, just energy, means you can stop the gushing wound of America's psyche, by facing facts- head on. Like the Akido master, redirects the momentum of an attack, by protecting self, while also displaying elements of mercy.
For those who enjoy high risk sports, this financial high wire act that we have embarked on by force, (tax cuts) might just prove to be one hell of a roller-coaster ride! Fear and thrill are very similar vibrations. Its a high stakes game, indeed. Jupiter is all about relating and Scorpio is our shadow- (fear/paranoid)...so when Mars (action- defense) locks in step with the biggest of the big...we will see some action around banks, debt, fears, mergers, and some will succumb to death. Its highly possible the first week of January brings not only party defects, but alas some end to long term political careers. A sudden vacant seat can be a game changer. What seemed a done deal, is suddenly undone. So, do not despair, because work is being done out of sight, that can tilt the axis. Sherlock Holmes is very busy.
This combo is an excellent team fighter for getting rid of anything you no longer want, including weight! Use the first week in the new year make yourself discover the hidden talents within you. Taxes come under Scorpio as well, so you'd do yourself a favor by jumping the gun on that a bit, being savvy, and a nip and a tuck now, rather than later.
Its really about being PREPARED more than anything else. Being able to see just what you can work with- as far as getting along with others, understanding what has value and what doesn't. Knowing your worth. TRUTH always works. So be truthful to yourself first ! What needs to be done to reinforce my fortress? I am speaking of - home, health, marriage, soul- whatever has great value to you.
When Mars hits the 29 degree of Scorpio- on the 25th - 27th of January, you can expect some turbulence. This is especially a time to pay attention to people who are not of sound mind and body, and keep a healthy distance. Mars will trigger the Total Solar Eclipse that happened in August. I expect deep obsessions and heels digging in over pov's....its an especially difficult energy, but can bring relief in situations that you wish to come to closure. Its a bit pig headed... so don't expect people to back down with ease, tread lightly in disagreements. Its the opening act to the Lunar Eclipse, in Leo, that occurs on the 31st. Yes, we have TWO full moon this month...so whatever didn't get thrown out on the 1st, is for sure going out with a flare and drama on the last day of the month. Hissy fits will be all the rage! If this happens to be near your birthday, your life is going through MAJOR overhaul. Be kind to yourself as you morph into a new being.
The orange slime (pretend leader of the free world) has surely got one hell of a month of hard aspects, so don't expect the on going soap opera to end...its not going to ...its going to be high pitch drama......brace yourself ...the best part has yet to come...........a real show stopper.
And as they say in the South: "Don't let the screen door hit you on the ass"......
There are going to be so many 'unexpected' moments in January, that you'll wish you could super glue yourself back to ANY point in time when life was simply- calmer. But we can't, and thus, take a deep breath, puff the chest out, say a prayer, and get ready to stand your ground and show what you are made of: Stardust! Cosmic Light!
Janis will light the path
2018 Here we come....ready we are!

Y U B?
It is the time, to ask yourself some questions about your existence.
Y U B= Why does your heart continue to beat ? What is the meaning of your life? And of course, in the time of Sagittarius... we got to ask......ARE WE HAVING FUN ? Am I published yet? Am I famous with myself?
Sun in Sagittarius is all about the glory of knowing it all; because one born under this sun sign is the forever student/all knowing professor. And if you don't know the answers to all questions, or mainly THE question, the next three weeks are an excellent time to do some searching. Traveling within that sphere of the heart and the brain. The pathways that unite the two. Because we know, from seeing the "Wizard of Oz" (surely he was a Sag!!!) having a heart with no brain isn't much fun, and a brain with no heart is rather dull, and really, we all are just trying to get back home....(to thy self) and that takes some big courage! And Sagittarius energy has plenty of that. It's ruler is Jupiter, infectious with "we can do everything, at all times".
The sun in Sagittarius alone won't make one an investigative, physiological, self inquiry bundle of expansive super galactic highway fool....No, we need Mercury in Sag to go for the mind-think- thus asks big questions scenario. And as luck would have it, (we are in the lucky season now, having survived the dark age of Scorpio) Mercury IS in Sagittarius.....!!! And Mercury will be there for a much extended tour, as she/he (androgynous energy) turns retrograde on Dec 2nd @ 11:34 pm PST. At the last degree mind you..... just when you were about to cross over into the land of 'get the job done, (Capricorn) - scream and halt happened.......RETROGRADE MERCURY! Burn that rubber! U-TURN.
OH, NO...... you beg...please not during the busy time for the post office....all those packages and potential gifts, tossed here and there and everywhere, except the address on the label. And the joy and glory of being able to RE-TURN, RE-VIEW, RE-ORGANIZE, RE-CALL all the reasons you just can't deal with the holidays!!! How can I do self-inquiry when my least favor sibling demands to join us in Malibu for ....ever.... well, just for a week, but really, it will feel like forever. Please say its not so!
Would I lie to you? With the sun being in 'seek the truth and you will be set free' energy, all I can say is: Make it a journey to remember. Rewrite your family dinner story, holiday shopping, joy of the season vibration. Use it ! The planets are here to help us carve a better understanding of Y - U- B.... here... now. In this moment, in this body, with this family. So find the humor in it all. Because really everyone likes to laugh. Play the clown this season, see the retrograde as a period to retrace your funny bone roots, and attach it to your current point of view.
Now, that we've got that stage set, I can drop the big bomb.... The day before Mercury does the backward shuffle, MARS OPPOSES URANUS...... now that's some out of the blue, didn't see that new invention morphing out of my soul center, energy. Anything goes. And everything goes. Now I see you, now, puff the magic dragon U B GONE. Y? Was it something that I didn't say? Mars and Uranus together are some way restless energy....combine that with a Mercury (mind) retrograde, and you have - "yes, we are coming for the holidays". Five minutes later, "Well, actually, we are not coming, or maybe we are coming, but we are not flying, so if we can find a big enough rental to haul the entire family and pets too, then we will make it, if we can, we'll have to see, because actually, we just got some big news that changes our perspective on travel, and not just that, well, you know, everything is really already booked up.........sooooo....we'll see".
IT really is that kind of crazy making energy. The yes, no, maybe. What to do? BE FLEXIBLE.
This particular transit is great for multi-tasking! Mars, with Uranus (oppose) both in a flag waving, bubble blowing salute to Saturn in Sagittarius.... He's just marching toward Capricorn, and before he gets there- they want to have a fun three-some, because you know...soon enough...its all going to get all SERIOUS.....so lets be flexible and fly around everywhere like a butterfly this holiday season...while asking yourself the meaning of YOUR life, and what hat you really like wearing the most. The key is to unlock your want wish, but not the material one, (on that's OK, it has its place too) for this energy to work in your FAVOR, first you have to find the magical mojo that makes you tick, and then spread that happiness through your blood to your heart. Once you know your heart, its just a matter of time....because you become a magnet for that which you ponder 24/7.
Its really that simple. We are not going to manifest what we aren't into doing/ being/ seeing with much passion. So, why not just figure out what makes you walk on tip toes and smile and focus on the urge to be the happiest you can be.
Venus is going to add to this line up, but first she has to sit at 29 Scorpio and trigger the Total Solar Eclipse point! The sensitive dates are - NOW- and the next three days. The power of hidden money. How to hide your money. Money and Power. What the power of Money does to men. (and women)...and since Venus is in a female sign....and the sign of marriage...and art- ( how about that 450 million dollar painting of Christ? That'd feed some mouths!) it will be about power marriages. Just read that Prince Harry is tying the knot. Venus square the Royal sign of Leo- Total Solar Eclipse point tells me- that its not going to go down a 'all smooth and roses path...there will be thorns, careful not to prick yourself'..... deep passions die hard. This one is about fighting for your love, even if it cost you the throne.I do not think Ms. Megan has a clue what she just signed on for. So, if you sign on the dot, right now, its in blood. It'll cost ya. Y U B like that?????? (she asked). For the answer- go deeper. Stir the pot. Get rid of the bad habit, and be free. Venus at the last degree is letting go - of something! Make it a bad habit you let go of.
By Dec 2nd Venus is in Sagittarius all chatty with Mercury and the Sun . Let the questions begin!
Short story writing, armchair tales, pass the fattest foods around the table, and then work it all off with some sword fighting in the back yard. This is also the energy of: - we love games- mind games- and real games- chess, cards, twister....they all will be welcomed at the parties. Engage your heart and your Mind with curious energy- talk to guests that you normally wouldn't. Ask people good questions to stimulate the conversation beyond surface chit chat.
On the 3rd of Dec we have a full moon that in a square to Neptune. So do your best to stay within boundaries of shopping budgets...(you won't).... this full moon is 'devil may care' and 'I don't'.... so really know that the lines are easily crossed and excuses are many, but the bill will have to be paid....at one point.... Its also the over sell energy that used car salesmen have a bad rap for. Swamp land in Florida sort of deal....Do your homework.
On the 19th of Dec sturdy Saturn enters Capricorn. It was last in this placement twenty-eight years ago. Those born 1960-1962 are entering into their second Saturn return period........what do you want to be now that you are all grown up? Its a big deal. Even bigger because its in the sign of Capricorn! The old goat only wants to climb to the top! Honor this HUGE shift by making a plan of your own. But before you can do that...............you must ask yourself........WHY ARE YOU HERE?
Make the answer a lasting one with a good ending.
Happy Holidays to one and All.
Jai Om Tat Sat.

Keeping balance Off Kilter
It might not STOP just yet, but its going to get very SERIOUS. As in, STAND UP to the crazy energy serious... We are in the season of SCORPIO now. Yes, there is still some Libra hanging around, trying its best, to not get "involved" in the ruckus.... not get their hands "dirty"...but you know everything is shifting into - take no prisoners mode. Black and White view. With us or AGAINST us time. Who's side are you on?
I am speaking of America's current meltdown of leadership...which of course was AWOL about 10 months ago. Since we've had crisis after crisis, it's becomes very clear, we are sinking into quicksand, and totally uncharted waters now. This is just about when I expect a miracle. And no one is better to hand out 180 turnarounds, than SCORPIO.
The sign Scorpio is all about - the transformation of the soul, and ground zero ash rising into an energy source that outlast all expectations. Scorpio can withstand the most cruel circumstances and then somehow, bring a healing and depth to the table that will feed you forever.
The Sun, Mercury, and most expansive Jupiter are all in the deep waters of Scorpio now. This week the Sun will hold hands with Jupiter at the degree of 4 Scorpio on Oct 26th. This actually happens to be Hillary Clinton's birthday. She's just launch her latest book tour, and its going very very well. I am not surprised, as Jupiter rules publishing and its tied to her Sun this year. She is a prime example of how one rises from the ashes, does what one never thought possible, and then does it again and again!
She is SCORPIO. You do not need to look any further for a great example of the strengths of this sign.
Jupiter also rules JUSTICE. Within twenty-four hours of its entrance into Scorpio, the Sex crazed and abusive men in Hollywood started being outed. There seems to be a lot of them. The lid has been BLOWN sky high, and its not going back on. Certainly, its all bent out of shape, so it won't fit the old cast iron pot anymore, no matter how much those that do not want change try. WOMEN are moving forward. We might not of gotten our first female president, but you just watch us ROAR for change.
I believe that the desire for change is so deep, that it will stick. The rally call will not be silenced. Its as if all the frustrations of the last ten months are poured into this movement to get justice for women who've had to endure loggerhead horn-beast behavior from men in power for a lifetime...and they are sick of it. SO sick of it- that "FEAR" of backlash is gone. For the record, FEAR is never in the Scorpio vocabulary. So, the clay-brains that think this is just a passing moment, need to read up on Scorpio energy.
How can you use this energy?
Harnessing Scorpio energy is easy- just ask yourself what you are most passionate about! Move forward in that direction. Do not allow any distractions. Do not take your eye off the goal. Give five hundred percent- and you will make progress.
The down side of Scorpio energy is that it -can be ruthless. Even cruel. So keep it in check! Am I hurting anyone with my blind ambition? Have I forgotten family as I pursue career? Its hard to keep it in balance, but the last ten months have shown us what happens when we 'don't care' about others, only care about ourselves.
The extremes in climate will continue if we continue to not 'care' about the planet. Apply this same rule to your own life. Commit to a path, yes, but keep a holistic view in mind.
On the 3rd of Nov. we have a very powerful Full Moon that links up with Neptune (dreams/fantasy/spiritual truths) and also pays heed to Pluto (underground power). BE HONEST. It is really that simple. Tell the truth to yourself and others. Do not allow yourself to fall into a daze of wishful thinking or bias leaning- deal with conflicts head on. Do not allow escape patterns to prevail.
There will be some strong shifts in allegiance. near this full moon. Full on separations. Venus will be in an exact opposition to Uranus. This will bring a shock to many, how 'suddenly' people that have always 'played ball'....are not playing anymore. They no longer 'do as they are told'...or expected. No, this full moon is going to bring many a rebel with a huge cause! Cause you did this, Cause you did that, I am gone!
But not is all lost, as Venus will also be in a good relationship with Saturn, FINALLY, a sense of secure footing can be found. Its almost as if the minute you realize what is no longer working, you find the path that WILL WORK. So, its a break through....after the breakdown. Its also a bit like the owl looking upside down, you turn the tables, and everyone gets a new view.
From that place NEW CONTRACTS can be formed. New bonding that is much more about how to get along, and not just about 'getting yours'. Finding the win/win situations. This happens when you honor your principals more than the end game. This month would be a good time to be clear about what exactly those principals are.
Many people have experienced an entire life-changing event in the last month! What they wanted out of life has CHANGED. This is the entire purpose of Scorpio energy. It certainly calls on one to find the strength of character that you never knew you had, until it was tested. Scorpio will test you. Then it rewards you, with mainly, no more fears. Freedom from fear. What do people fear most? Death. What is death? Change. Scorpio energy is about facing all the fears- conquering them. You become Hero/Heroines!
This energy of Scorpio is also about inner resources. The gems are inside, in the form of finding: loyalty, determination, passion, deep forever love, good use of power, endurance, everlasting depth of willpower. Being AUTHENTIC.
So, as the world tries to throw you off center, turn yourself inward and grab a hold of your power rod of steel soulfulness-and don't let go!

Clean up time... lots of Virgo and details matter
Clean up time! Its almost Mabon (Autumn in the North Hemisphere) and so, time to go pick your tonic tea for strength. It's been one heck of a month. Hard to believe that just four weeks ago, America was on fire about the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo...and now, Texas, Florida, and St. Louis are all cleaning up from protests and big winds. The west saw record fires, and Mexico a record quake. All of this extreme 'weather' within the week of the eclipse. It's only just begun, this 'changing' that I wrote about last month. Now.... the real work begins. We will have plenty of help, because we got- a whole lotta VIRGO going on! Virgo loves to improve its lot and yours too. There is no such standard as "too perfect" for the Virgo. So get your gloves, mask, and work clothes on. Even if you do not live in a weather torn zone, you can still organize the dresser drawer, closet, garage, the thoughts in your head.
We start a new cycle with a Virgo New Moon on the 19th of Sept, @ 28 degrees Virgo. The Sun and Moon are joined with Mercury, Venus and Mars also in the earth sign. Details matter. Make your lists! Refine the heck out of it. So PERFECT its all going to be!~ right? RIGHT and Write. Go over the house with a fine tooth comb and decide what needs to go to the needy stores, friends, and or anyone who will make use of, what you no longer are making use of. Start the short stories project. The needlepoint project. The fix the whatever is broken project. That might also include your digestive tract. Excellent starting place is building up your own body. Get a plan (Virgo loves plans) and do not waiver on the start date= NOW.
Saturn (taskmaster) is in a square to this Virgo stellium (cluster of stars) so you will hear the voices that say: You can wait, you need to read up on this first... but I say: dare you tally, as the energy will pass in a flash, and you'll miss a great chance at SELF IMPROVEMENT! Where in your birth chart this group of helpers falls- that the place to pay extra attention to.
I'll be useful and give you a short run down: (Sun sign or Rising if you know it)
Virgo: YOU! Start with your own body. Take care to notice all the tiny details that you have been ignoring. Such as skin not as tight as it could be, too much time spent worrying giving you worry lines? Then you need to spend some time with humor. Read it, Watch it. Make it! Redo your self image by giving in to compassion for yourself, even as you get a new plan going on how you present yourself.
Libra: Retreat to the area of spiritual study and behind the scenes for a b12 shot of improvement. Sign up for a series of new meditation skills. Clean out your closets. Rescue an animal, there are plenty in Florida and Texas that need a home. Start on that writing project you have been yakking about doing for ages.
Scorpio: Head to the gym to meet new friends ! Do goat Yoga (its popular now). Decide what cause you feel is the most important, to the most people, and join up to help make change a reality. Lead a workshop on a specialized area that you work in. Of course you'll have to be a master yourself, and if you aren't yet, find one to work with. Take that weekender course on whatever area you are weak in.
Sagittarius: Get a new mission in life. Be extra nice to your boss, and put in just a few more hours, to show how you really do get the job done, and that's why you deserve a promotion. Pitch your latest achievement. Stick your neck out just a bit further and act like you already have the promotion by your confidence in self. List all the reasons why (and of course back them up with your portfolio). Hang with the Dad a bit more this month.
Capricorn: Step on to the nearest college/community campus and spend some time in their library. Do some side learning about the faith you believe in. Get out and play some sport that requires good eye/ hand coordination. Write a short article on any place you've traveled in the last year and submit it to a magazine. Or research where you'd LIKE to go!
Aquarius: Investigate your options on how you can invest in yourself. Sometimes this means you invest in you- by not just planning your long term money goals, but how much intimacy you allow in your life. Sharing on a deep level with others is very restoring to the soul! You can also look into getting support from others for your ideas and dreams by asking for what you need. Do not be afraid to receive help.
Pisces: Partnerships are zipping with energy this month. You can make many great contacts and get the word 'out there' really with much ease. A few social events will go very far into creating the 'buzz' about what you are doing. Its a reach out time. Submit your work to just about every place you can imagine- no doubt some good feedback will return. Lots of contracts can be signed this month- just watch that you pay attention to the DETAILS.
Aries: There is not even a second to think right now, but you must! Your day to day will be humming like there is never a down moment- so be sure to take care of the body! Juice and lots of greens! As a matter of fact, this is the time to pay extra attention to your diet, and rest habits. Get that body massage that you've earned ten times over!
Taurus: Love and all the finer details are on the agenda this month. You just might meet that 'special someone' (s) at the play, diner, and or bike path this month. Get out there and mingle with the health nuts! If you are in the creative arts (or even if you aren't) take a ceramics class, or any class that allows you to work with earth, smell the roses, and or woodworking.
Gemini: Home base is where the greatest changes can take place- by making space! Instead of doing spring cleaning- do "get rid of- fall cleaning". Paint the house! Or just a room. Or if that is too much- do a new boarder. Start a writers group in your home. Or any kind of gathering focused on 'making our voices heard"... send postcards to the White house and serve finger food while doing it.
Cancer: The community, brothers and sisters and the car- all are areas that you can 'clean up' around. Be it, having a conversation with siblings, or the community. Buy a journal-write out your ideas. Make a plan on how to improve your communication skills. Juggle. Create something with your hands. Take a sign language class.
Leo: In what little ways can you value your life more? Spend time reviewing and then taking actions that reflect how you love and what you wish to spend time on. Look at where your time goes, what you spend on with your money. Do not be mindless about it- clean up habits of spending energy where it isn't really important to YOU. Check in with your heart before you speak. If you aren't happy in the job you are at- this would be a great time to start an employment search. New openings await your effort!
On the 19th Venus is going to trigger the Total Solar Eclipse point -! Yes, we are still in that... that energy is going to be with us a while-the energy of change and new doors opening. But you have to take advantage of the Venus crossing this point- by deciding what makes your life WHOLE? What makes you feel LOVE from within- and the urge to give it? This would be a time to explore love at the center of your heart. So, go have some fun this week. The world has really been way way way crazy drama in the last four weeks- let's use the Venus at the last degree of Leo moment to find the love. Seek love in all its forms. Bask in it as much as you can.
By the end of the day on the 19th Venus will move into Virgo. And she'll be in that line up with all the other Virgo energy- and perfectionism will take over..... "all is perfect in its imperfectness" would be a good mantra. Otherwise, you just might feel a bit too nick picky, never satisfied, frustration energy.
There is an entire art form in the Asian culture in making "the mistake" or "broken" part of something its 'treasure'..... the broken part is what makes it special.
Remember that ALL month.
There will be a chance for many a broken thing - when Jupiter opposes Uranus on the 27th. Also known as - The mega earthquake aspect. The following day- Pluto stations direct.
Moving and Shaking is going to happen for sure- in the boardroom, bedroom, and on Mother Earth. Treaties will be broken, and a lot of surprise break ups...but its not a "bad" aspect- its making room for something else to enter the life. Just do not drive while mad. And make sure your friends are privy to that secret you told, staying one.
This month is all about the paper trail. It will be long and detailed. Remember to pick up after yourself!
