Today’s New Moon in Scorpio is a Solar Hybrid Eclipse. This is a total solar eclipse. It is a hybrid eclipse of the Sun with a magnitude of 1.0159. Totality will be visible from the northern Atlantic Ocean, east of Florida, to Africa at the Gabon landfall, R. Congo, DR Congo and Uganda, with maximum of 1 minute and 39 seconds visible from the Atlantic Ocean south of Ivory Coast and Ghana. You will be able to find images here at SpaceWeather.com.
A Solar Eclipse provides perfect timing for a deep letting go. Add to this the intensification of the event taking place in intense Scorpio and this provides the perfect potion to help us release and clear out the unwanted underbrush of our psyches. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio demands that we make drastic changes or he will force them upon us. Scorpio’s depth demands a vulnerability that many of you may not be willing to uncover. Often this is less than comfortable. A saving grace is the South Node in cushy Taurus. This eclipse demands that we find a deeper sense of patience and create a steadfast commitment to willingly step onto a challenging path. Though the road ahead is filled with obstacles, each time we encounter one it is a reminder to slow down and honor how far we have come, and to give thanks for our beautiful resources.
Venus steps tentatively onto the highlands of the mountain goat, Capricorn November 5. Don’t let the serious goat fool you. While the Goddess of love is visiting the often serious goat, we are reminded to stay on top of our time commitments and within protocol boundaries. It is time to get serious about your current relationships and bow to authority. Brace yourself as her tour here is extra-long as she is scheduled to retrograde beginning December 21 in this earthy sign until March 5, 2014. Don’t freak out as this is a good thing for clearing out and clarifying what you want. That which we are attracted to, demands and investment and commitment and Capricorn is the greatest teacher of this due to the rulership of serious Saturn. Be wise and make good choices by using this transit to your advantage. The trickiest days during this transit are when our psyches get rocked by a tense aspect from Pluto and an unusual side-swipe from Uranus during mid-November. This literally shatters any semblance of order and blows your plans. Remember, all change is good!
Giant Jupiter turns retrograde in the sensitive sign of Cancer November 6. Beware of all drama queens, this is sure to set them off. The good news is that this is a great time to build your own personal power, so stay out of these whacky friends’ and family members’ way and focus on yourself. Jupiter is the lord of higher learning and spiritual growth. Dive into your personal studies and enjoy reconnecting with your spiritual teachers. This is going to last through March 6, 2014.
Mercury goes direct November 10. This is a great day to launch your new ad campaign and get moving on the sales you have perceptibly been struggling with. Next time the trickster backpedals remember that this is your opportunity to strategize. The day he stations to go direct, is the best day for the launch.
Neptune clears out of the mist and moves direct November 13. Due to his outer location the effects are less noticeable right away for most. Artists realize ideas for new projects and dreams become colorful. Utilize the peace and quiet of deep-trance state meditation to tap into this. I am teaching a Vak-Yoga Retreat at the gorgeous Amrit Yoga < http://amrityoga.com/details/december13-15-2013.html>Institute this weekend and invite you to join me. This is the perfect honoring of this event.
Celebrate the Exalted New Moon in Taurus November 17. The bull’s beauty helps to temper the voracious power and appetite of the Sun in Scorpio. Plan an activity that helps you realize the power of the present moment. Be conscious of your energetic investment in people, places and things. Give thanks and praises for all you have.
The wounded healer, Chiron turns direct November 19. This is a great time to act in selfless service to others. Oddities in health soon work out and realizations about your personal healing surface. It becomes apparent that all afflictions begin with emotional imbalances. Choose to express your new-found understanding creatively through art and expression.
November 21 the Sun flies in to Sagittarius. This uplifting visit to the territory of the archer helps us realign our sites on goals and aspirations. Foreign travel and higher education and passions of the archer so take advantage of this time and make plans for yourself. It is a good thing to reach a bit during this transit. Just be sure to have a safety net.
I wish you a wonderful month full of intuition and fantasies materializing. May you realize your true being-ness.
Please read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Your energy is running high, so take advantage of the power surge. Extra care is needed in order to budget your time. Listen carefully to the guidance being given to you by your team members. Notice your ability to increase your attraction factor. You have wanted something for a long time and the good news is it is about to arrive. Be sure you are ready for it. You have time to reevaluate your desire and original order to the divine. Be sure you have asked for exactly what you want. Think of all the fairytales you know about wishes. These hold key information.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
The road feels bumpy and it is difficult to figure out a pace that works to keep you moving forward. Once you do hit your stride you are able to soar far beyond your perceived edges and boundaries. The only way you are able to transform your current situation is to think and function way outside the box. Good vibes are casting a thick haze on your perception of reality. Choose to act with the utmost integrity. If you need help, ask your friends. They are ready to come to your rescue.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
Be industrious as your turn your nose to the grindstone. Roll up your sleeves and get busy. This is a time of work and all of your projects are calling your name. The hard and steady work inspires even more ideas and so be sure you are ready to document them as they float into you consciousness. Double check with thorough research and be sure to back up all intuitive choices. Look to your mentors and guides for affirming assurance. Luck is on your side. Stay motivated and keep moving forward. Your imagination is running full tilt, go with it!
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
Be honest with yourself and willing to create revisions to your master plan. These adjustments are met with a great and much needed boost of energy so put it to good use. Are you ready to push into the situations you feel you deserve? A great deal of what has held you back is your perception about your own self-worth. I know you are a good person, but you must learn to really own this for yourself. Take a bigger risk in relationships and allow yourself to have what you think is meant for only others. You are much more lovable than you know.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
You have no choice but to reevaluate the way you have been behaving toward your family. Quit the drama and own up to your prior behavior. This is the only way to heal things and move on. Your instincts have you wanting to bolt or cover it all up with your dynamic humor. This only backfires so turn and face the music. All of this is a result of your prior behavior. Sometimes lessons are tougher. This is one of those times. Someone had to wake you up. I guess it is me. I know you will thank me later after you realize what I just hit you with.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
You love to reorganize the surface, but are you ready to dive into your depths and have a go at tidying up here? I hope so as it is time now. After as you look back your gratitude sparkles and your charm attracts a great many new friends and possibilities. You deserve this. Learn to combine what you love to do with productive activities. This moves you forward upon your career path. Even though your initial reaction is to view this as inhibiting, I urge you to press forward until there is a sense of comfort. For so long you have been hanging back and making excuses. Now is the time to take a stand and make a stand. You can do it so, believe in yourself.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
A full evaluation of income and expenditure is long overdue. Seeing it all spelled out on paper is very helpful now and helps to get you creating a new plan and actual budget. You must work hard to keep your self-esteem level high after receiving hits from people you love. Take it as a necessary reality check. Regarding relationships: you are the one that keeps people at arm’s length. What this is doing is preventing you from really investing yourself into the relationship. You are super-sensitive right now and must develop your own method of self-support. Practice looking in the mirror when you are setting intentions. This helps a great deal with building your power bank up to optimum level.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
You are very busy completing the last little details on your current project. As always, the next big adventure is waiting in the wings for you to give the “Take flight” command. If you are feeling ignored by colleagues, take it as a sign for a day off. Give yourself permission to walk away for a bit before embarking on this next project. Lots of luck is on your side so indeed you can afford a few risks. With the Solar Eclipse in your sign, the mind is washed clean along with the slate. It is up to you how much drama you wish to partake in. It really is not necessary.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
Your fantasy world is still coloring your ability to see the reality of situations. More work is needed to practice seeing the authentic truth of what surrounds you. Flashes of intuition light up your consciousness and help you choose the right way to go. When you are moving you are happiest. The trick right now is staying still and allowing what comes next to surface. This is a new practice for you as doing and making things happen is more your fiery style. When in doubt reduce all situations to common sense and by all means, follow your heart.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
Are you ready for love? Whether or not this is the situation many shifts and modifications twist your path into a much different direction. Don’t let it throw you off. It is time to take charge and be the master of your emotions. This does not mean run away from them. Take the necessary time out and away from others to really look at what you want. Then, plan and really spell out how you are going to get there. All the plans must be well thought out or any investment of energy is worthless.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
Brace yourself. The waters are about to get rough. Your usual reaction is to check out emotionally but unfortunately this is a non-negotiable. Quick solutions fail heinously so make the solid choice to really think it all out. A great deal of this upheaval can very well be at the workplace. Do all you can immediately to smooth over any prickly emotions now. This comes in really handy when sensitivities flare. I know this is overwhelming and so I beg you to please only address and complete one issue at a time as multitasking just makes a bigger mess of it.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
Bow out gracefully when you are not feeling fully committed or aligned with what is going on. When the timetable is clear, take off on your own for a much needed retreat. This helps greatly to avoid confrontations with friends and co-workers. If you feel the need to mentor or help someone, choose a younger person. This satisfies any need you may have to exercise authority and helps up your level of optimism. You are super sensitive right now and there is no need to rub yourself the wrong way. It is much better to put your creative energy into your own projects and practice tolerance.
