Astrological Musings

Planetary news this week: November 7, 2017

horoscopes November 2017Saturn (discipline and hard work) and Uranus (innovation and change) are dancing in the sky right now – a harmonious combination that  brings inspiration and an ability to think outside the box while being able to remain organized and focused.  This can help us in all kinds of ways, from expanding a spiritual practice to creating a new business venture. It is especially useful for writers as it opens the doorway to multidimensional thought.  Though this dynamic peaks on the 11th of November, its influence is strongest this week.

We have two planets changing direction this week, signifying a change in focus and a different quality of energy.  Mercury moved into Sagittarius on the 5th, lifting us out of its former intensity in Scorpio into the more expanded vision of Sagittarius.  Then Venus enters Scorpio on the 7th and facilitates our passage into the dark Underworld of our passions and deepest fears and desires.  In Scorpio, Venus creates an important time to confront any issues in our relationships that may be creating problems.  This process isn’t easy, but is better entered willingly than by force.

The 9th brings a pleasant day which helps to empower and inspire us, although an awkward Mars aspect may weaken our resolve and make it difficult to achieve anything meaningful. (Sun sextile Pluto, Mars quincunx Neptune)

Between the 10th and the 13th we have a bit of rough astrological weather. On the 10th communication may be somewhat disconnected for just a day or so, and you may find yourself at odds on the 11th, wondering which path to take.  On the 13th we FEEL lucky and perhaps we are lucky that day, but we are also insecure and somewhat foggy.  If a golden opportunity presents […]

The astrology of the US addiction to guns, 2017 edition

Astrology of guns USAMuch of this article is reposted from a post from 2013.  Since then we have had the worst mass shootings in US history: 

  • Las Vegas, Oct 2017: 58 dead
  • Orlando, June 2016: 49 dead
  • Virginia Tech, Apr 2007: 32 dead
  • Sandy Hook, Dec 2012: 27 dead
  • Texas church, Nov 2017: 26 dead

Everywhere you turn these days the discussion is about guns.

Guns are not a new topic for discussion, but the feverish frenzy over which gun rights advocates are protecting their rights to own assault weapons and other types of weapons meant for mass killings is rather recent.

There is no nation like the United States in terms of gun ownership.  The (Sibly) chart of the United States has Sagittarius rising, which echoes the expansive philosophies that have always drove the country towards constant expansion and religious ideals, both Sagittarian concepts.  We normally would look towards Mars for signs of warfare like behavior, but in the US chart the passion for guns is found in the placement of Pluto in the second house.  This fanatacisim about guns originates not in an aggressive desire to assert force (Mars) but in a hunger for freedom (Sagittarius ascendant) and a relentless (Pluto) drive to accumulate masses of money through manipulation of the nation’s ideals (second house).

American gun lovers don’t want to accumulate stockpiles of weapons to kill their neighbors.  They want these weapons because they believe that it will protect that Sagittarius rising freedom.  It doesn’t hurt that Uranus (planet of liberation from oppression) conjoins both Venus (partners) and Mars (aggression) in the chart.  That Uranus/Mars conjunction especially denotes a radical desire for liberty at all costs.  Americans own twice as many guns as any other country, per capita.

That’s […]

Sunday Inspiration: The Beauty of Nothingness

Nothingness is the sister of possibility.

It makes an urgent space for that which is new, surprising, and unexpected.

When you feel nothingness and emptiness gnawing at your life, there is no need to despair. This is a call from your soul, awakening your life to new possibilities.

John O’Donohue

The Taurus Full Moon showers blessings on November 4, 2017

A glorious Full Moon in Taurus showers its blessings on November 4th. Ruled by Venus, Taurus calls upon us to put aside the extremes of our ideas and emotions and find a harmonious balance of peace and comfort.

Venus is well known for its association with love and beauty, but also governs the manner in which we view our life – our aesthetics, our self-esteem and, our ability to create resources out of the raw material of our day to day existence.

Under the Full Moon, the Scorpio Sun and its opposite, the Taurus Moon, struggle for supremacy and ultimately find integration.  The intensity of Scorpio finds balance against the placid nature of Taurus, softening some of Scorpio’s hard edges and urging us to ground and center into the Earth.

Venus is very active in this Full Moon: a Venus/Saturn combination offers stability in our relationships, but a stressful Venus/Uranus aspect could be divisive and require us to put space in our dealing with others where needed.

In addition, the challenging square between Saturn (restriction and tests) and Chiron (wounding and healing) is culminating now, facilitating our own transition through the healing journey into the comfort of the healed. Because this Full Moon is so centered on the influence of Venus, our relationships will be critical and areas that have been difficult could blossom into something magical.

This is a good time to bring people together over food, or in the enjoyment of beauty such as a trip to a museum or park. The pleasures of the physical realm will help to smooth any rough edges that Uranus may infuse into the Full Moon experience.

Planetary news this week: October 30, 2017

I’m busily writing the November Planetary Illuminations report, but here is the forecast for the week ahead:

  • Mercury (mind and communication) is in Scorpio right now, taking no prisoners and speaking Truth to power. Mercury forms a square to the lunar nodes (the soul’s evolutionary journey from past to future) on October 30th, forcing a shift in ideas where necessary in order to follow a clearer path.  There may be an idea or belief that is keeping us from being able to move forward, and you may find yourself facing a choice to remain stuck in the past or release that thought to move more confidently into the future.
  • The Black Moon Lilith (representing a primal feminine rage against the patriarchy) is revealing herself to be more and more important in light of the spread of sexual harassment revelations.  She turned retrograde last week at the Libra New Moon and has now moved back into the sign of Sagittarius.  In Sagittarius, the sign of our shared philosophies and expanded ideals, she will continue to spread the message of feminine power.  I’ll be writing much more about this over the coming weeks.
  • Chiron is active on the 2nd and 3rd of November, potentially triggering painful memories and situations but also offering an opportunity for healing.  These Chiron periods are good times for activities that will support your mental and physical health.
  • The Taurus Full Moon on November 4th asks us to balance the intense power of the Scorpio season and find peace and serenity in our environment and our personal lives.  The Full Moon forms a challenging square with Ceres, the asteroid that governs our ability to nurture ourselves and others, suggesting that an adjustment will be necessary in […]
