LUNATIONS

This Full Moon in Taurus, opposes both Jupiter and the Sun in Scorpio and forms a sweet sextile to retrograde Neptune in Pisces. This is the perfect time to become more grounded in our power on a profound level. Manifest your deepest desire in this cycle. The sextile to Neptune calls us to spend some time in the hallowed halls of antiquity and embrace our immortality.

This New Moon in Scorpio, features the Lights in trine to retrograde Chiron in Pisces and also quincunx to retrograde Uranus in Aries. The cosmos is deliberately calling us to exercise patience rather than launch into new beginnings – just yet. Both Chiron and Uranus station direct at the close of the year, within a fortnight of each other. Prepare to hibernate!

PLANETARY ALERTS!


November Retrograde Stations and Shifts

Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and abundance enters Scorpio on October 10, 2017 at 09:20AM! The largest planet only makes this tour once every 12 years. Jupiter magnifies everything it touches and in the sign of Scorpio it can intensify your instincts depending on where it lands in your chart. Jupiter in Scorpio provides a year that you can research your desires and invest in yourself or others. It has great transforming power for good. Just be sure to appreciate your abundance and not to be overindulgent for best results!

Neptune, the planet of dreams, illusion, imagination and faith, stationed retrograde on June 16, 2017, at 09:11 AM and remains so until November 22, 2017, at 09:21 AM! Neptune rules all things unseen like music, pain, fear and pleasure! When it is in retrograde, often our experiences loom large in our long-term memory and we are able to heal as our perspective seeks peace. Music, art and mythology, from our archaic past can resurface with new meaning. Sometimes the answers to our prayers can surface in our dreamtime or when we catch a few words of a song as we stroll through the mall! Pay attention!

Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, full of surprises and promises liberation, stationed retrograde in Aries on the Anaretic degree on August 3, 2017 at 1:31 AM EDST and remains so until January 2, 2018 at 9:12 AM EST!! A whisper from its entrance into Taurus, Uranus chose to stay in Cardinal fire for many months. This planet has a volatile reputation and moves slowly but packs a wallop when it angles of with planets of event. It also rules epiphanies, and being retrograde in Aries, the ‘I AM’ presence has called us to reconsider how we express our Higher Self.
