Astrological Musings & More


When astrologers use the word “synastry”, they’re talking about the comparing of two natal astrology charts for the purpose of seeing how they relate to each other. Most ordinary people would make the assumption that this is for the purpose of love relationships, but it’s much more than that.

At the time and place of each individual birth, there is a gathering of energies put forth by the placement of the planets and other celestial bodies and points at that moment. That’s every individual – mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, neighbors, teachers, bosses and….yes…those we may fall in love with. Each individual has their own energy pattern or signature. When you come in contact with another person, your energy signature and there’s can have a harmonious blending or an instant repelling with each other.

Synastry is a method by which you can come to understand why you don’t get along with your neighbor or boss; why one of your siblings is your best friend while another is just the opposite. It can even help you to understand why that person you were best friend’s with is no longer in your life. There’s a multitude of things synastry can do to help you understand your relationships with anyone in your life.

Yes, it can be a valuable tool to finding and deciding on a love relationship, but ultimately it is so much more. If there are relationships of any kind in your life that are causing you confusion as to why they are the way they are, I highly suggest getting an astrologer to do some synastry for you. Comparing your chart with that other person may be very revealing and answer some important questions for you.

In the meantime, we have a Full Moon in Aries happening on Sunday, October 16th at 0:23 a.m. EDT.

This is a time to take a new look at life, perhaps from a different perspective, relating past experiences to present situations occurring in your life so that you can look with renewed hope to the future.

The symbol of Aries is the ram and the horns on that ram represent a crossroad in your life. It relates freedom with decision making and implying that free will is always dominant, whether we realize it or not.

Perhaps this Full Moon is indicating it’s time to let go of the old and boldly move forward to a new way of thinking, doing and being. Be sure to do so with reason rather than impulse for the best results.

In general, the energies of Moon in Aries are already highly enthusiastic and become even more so with the energies of a Full Moon. It’s a time of ambition and energetic activity.

There can be temper flare-ups, but they will just as quickly fizzle. Ugly moments can be forgotten with ease.

Overall, this is an excellent energy for a Full Moon, especially if you’re seeking changes in your life.

Venus in Sagittarius

Venus will enter Sagittarius on Tuesday, October 18th at 3:01 a.m. EDT making love, for some, like a shooting star – brilliant but impermanent.

The energy of this positioning can cause some to lack warmth and the power to sustain emotion. Relationships can become disappointing due to a lack of response by one or both parties.

For those affected by this placement, you will feel a need to be absolutely free when it comes to love. Conventional romance will seem boring and cause escape from the relationship by the nearest exit.

Another factor is that the slightest flaw or indelicacy will turn them off forever. They would also never love anything gross or earthy.

With Jupiter ruling Sagittarius, there can be a lavish taste for art and décor. If the money is there, there will be a palatial atmosphere to the home. Religious ceremonies and pageantry will also be appealing.

Emotional satisfaction will be gained through being outdoors and participating in games and sports. There will be an attraction to people with a philosophical bent or with advanced education.

A very interesting combination where love is concerned.


On October 22nd, at 7:46 p.m. EDT, the Sun begins its yearly sojourn through the sign of Scorpio.

The energies of Scorpio are very imaginative, persistent and determined. There’s a strong sense of purpose coupled with powerful feelings and emotions.

Scorpio is about mystery and the psychic realms. It’s also about healing and regeneration. It’s also about a need to experience life with great intensity and depth.

Now, like the other signs, Scorpio does have its negative traits and can be self-centered, stubborn, resentful, secretive, suspicious and even jealous. Being a water sign, Scorpio can also have an unstable, emotional nature.

Use these energies, even if you’re not born a Scorpio, to achieve what you really wish to have and be because that determination, coupled with large amounts of stored energy, can get you to where you want to go.

To all those celebrating birthdays…



Mercury in Scorpio 2

Mercury joins the Sun in the sign of Scorpio on Monday, October 24th at 4:47 p.m. EDT. causing the mind to be shrewd, sharp and powerful. There can be remarkable foresight and vision. People will be hard-pressed to deceive you.

There is an intensity to this placement that can sometimes make it less than pleasant. When placed in an adversarial position, these energies can cause people to become vicious and vengeful, even ruthless with their remarks. It can be said that it causes people to wield words like weapons. Mistrust of others can be an issue.

The upside is that when a person is of a higher nature, the mind can be brilliant, penetrating and determined. Fights will be for noble causes. There will be a desire to investigate the mysteries of the Universe and human life.

It must be said that this is also a time of interest in the occult and mystical side of life. Scorpio sees easily into the depths of the mysterious and unknown.

An interesting and challenging time.

As the dark of the year approaches and the Veil between the worlds grows thin, the path ahead beckons for us to rest and turn inward; to think about the year now passed and the one to come. Introspection can be very enlightening.


Love & Blessed Be
