Astrological Musings & More

The year continues to speed by and we are now in Scorpio only about 19 days from Sagittarius. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the green of Nature has given way to bright Fall colors and, now, bare branches as Winter approaches.

There is a cycle to everything, on Earth and in the Heavens. If we readily recognize the effect that the energies from the changing of the seasons has upon us, why are we so hesitant to acknowledge the energies of the movement of the planets?


Perhaps it’s because, while we clearly see and feel the energies that make up the changing of the seasons, the energies created by the movement of the planets and their interaction with each other is much, much more subtle in most cases. One would really have to practice intense awareness to realize when these energies take place by observing their affect upon ourselves (our mood, our health, etc.) and on others as well.

Does this mean we should ignore the fact that these energies do happen and do affect us? No. It means we need to awaken ourselves to ALL the rhythms of the Universe – both those close-at-hand that are clearly visible and those that stretch into space away from us and are much more subtle. They all matter. They all can be used to create a better life for each of us.

It’s always interesting to watch people when they hear a comet or meteor is passing close to Earth. Will it hit us? Let’s all watch, “holding our breath” and pray for a good outcome. Oh, that we should be that interested or involved in the passage of the Sun, the Moon or any of the other planets into, let’s say, Scorpio – the sign of death, rebirth, transformation. This is a sign that can intensify our emotions, increase our intuition, and yet also cause us to be secretive, suspicious, and even jealous. Depending on the sign you were born under and where your planets are located by sign and house, these energies could affect the way you respond to the people in your life and the situations you encounter. Few people think about this though and even fewer care, believing it all to be pure fiction that anything that doesn’t reside on Earth could have that kind of affect on us.

This kind of information can make a big difference on how you step out your front door and meet Life each day, if used wisely. Why would you not want to use all the information available to make your life easier, more productive and more abundant? I guess I may never have the answer to that one.

In this harvest season, when we are about to give thanks for all we have, remember that there is a wealth of valuable information for you to reap the benefits of, any time you so desire, and it’s called astrology.

New Moon in Scorpio 2

New Moons always mean new beginnings for those who want to take advantage of the energy provided by them. This New Moon will be happening in the sign of Scorpio on Thursday, November 4th at 5:15 p.m. EDT.

Moon in Scorpio creates a phenomenal memory that can be a real two-edged sword. On one hand, being able to remember appointments and other important information is an asset. On the other hand, if the memories are ones that are not so pleasant from childhood, then this placement may cause you to deal with scars that have been in your psyche for quite some time. Perhaps it’s time though and the energies of this placement will help you with that.

With the Sun and Moon both in Scorpio, a new beginning in independence and self-reliance could be in the offing for you. A balance between mastery of self and an iron-will needs to be found. You want to stand on your own, but not override or dominant others.

For those interested in the mysterious, Scorpio easily takes us into those realms. It can be an excellent time to practice any form of divination or investigate any subject dealing with the hidden side of life.

There is a dark side to Scorpio though and it’s good to guard against moodiness as well as jealousy, suspicions and secrets that could cause problems if revealed.

Scorpio has a lot to offer in opportunities and a lot to reveal to us, if we are open to it.

Mercury in Scorpio

On Friday, November 5th, at 6:35 p.m. EDT, Mercury enters the sign of Scorpio causing the minds of those affected by these energies to become shrewd, sharp, powerful with remarkably clear foresight and vision.

This is not a time to try to be deceptive. Your motives will easily be sensed. Better to use the energies of this placement to fight for a noble cause or investigate the mysteries of the Universe.

People can be highly critical now. Heated arguments can become unscrupulous with no mercy for one’s opponent. Remarks can become ruthless.

Mercury in Scorpio also produces an interest in the occult side of life and those things that are mystical in nature. With the Sun also in Scorpio, right now, this is a great time for exploring and developing psychic abilities.

DST - Fall

Finally, as the Wheel of the Year turns once more, we arrive at the time when we must “Fall back.” At 2 a.m. EDT, on Sunday the 7th, the clocks are turned back and it becomes 1 a.m. EST (or whatever time zone you happen to be in) as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end for the year. An extra hour’s sleep is our reward. Enjoy!
