October 20th,  2014

Dear Friends,

This New Moon gives us the opportunity to get things under control.  The New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. The eighth sign of the Zodiac brings the time to set your intentions for everything you would like to get into focus.   Each New Moon is like a chapter in a book. This is the 10th New Moon of the year. The year began on January 1st with a New Moon in Capricorn joined with Pluto opposing Jupiter in Cancer and square to Uranus in Aries and Mars in Libra. What a beginning to this year which we will call the book of 2014. After ten months of a roller coaster ride and lots of growth that has put us through experiences we can now strive for meaning and focus. You might say, "I get it now. I know where I am going and I know what I have to let go of." What about relationships? Stop suffering over what didn't work or is over. It is time to move on. 


THE SIGN SCORPIO: Scorpio is one of the most powerful signs in the Zodiac, because of its strong will and determination to accomplish whatever it attempts to do. Its analytical mind, strong intuition, reasoning power, perception, long range planning ability, magnetism, and energy are assurances of success. Where you have this sign in your chart is where you want to merge with others. This sign has the power to control, and has a need to delve deeply. When this sign is prominent we have the ability to make it happen. You leave nothing for chance.  Eruption of repressed emotions causes healing and cleansing. Scorpio rules credit cards and borrowed money. This month will emphasize our finances. Are we in control of our money, or does it control us? Are we a slave to our bills? Release and letting go is one of the major lessons of Scorpio. It is time to be fierce.  

RULERS: MARS\PLUTO Pluto is in Capricorn breaking down and restructuring the system we live by. Mars is in Sagittarius stimulating the adventure in all of us to explore new horizons. Where Scorpio is in your chart will receive powerful energy for growth coming from this North Nodal Solar Eclipse. Saturn is also in Scorpio and will be for a couple of months. The emphasis is on power and control. We need to be in control of the Scorpio house in our chart rather than it controlling us. You can transform and regenerate things in your life now. You can recycle what you no longer need. You can get rid of garbage and the things that are in the way. Out of the garbage breathes new energy for you. It is time to stir up that compost pile and see what surfaces. It will be the energy that turns your life into the direction you want.

A Solar Eclipse is a New Moon with a lot more power. Its effects last for a couple of years. The things you focus on now will grow. You need to be in the zone. You need to be like a laser beam. You need to have no doubt. If you can do this you will rise in ways you never expected. Get rid of a negative attitude. You do not want to dilute this energy being all over the place. Mercury is retrograde in Libra. It is helping you to re-work how you communicate. If you can't get your point across then what is the use. Mercury is in opposition to Uranus in Aries. A new approach goes a long way. Mercury retrograde is always a time to fix things and it gives us a second chance. Mercury goes direct in two days. Saturn has been in Scorpio two years. You have had plenty of time to clean up and get the show on the road. This Solar Eclipse in Scorpio may just be the finishing touches.

THE SABIAN SYMBOL: A SIGHT-SEEING BUS   This is a symbol of the individual spirit in its catholicity, and of the naïveté and indomitability of its interest in life as a whole. Here man is freed from all artificial boundaries of experience, and is encouraged to reach out widely and profitably in sharing his realizations with his fellows. There is an exceptional range of understanding and sympathy, and a gift fro developing varying avenues of self-expression. The keyword is FRIENDLINESS. When positive, the degree is a basic impersonality which capitalizes on the opportunity of the moment and helps reorder the situation whenever there is difficulty or dissatisfaction and when negative, a genius for avoiding any and every actual expenditure of self.   “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones"

Astrology is an ancient and sacred language. It is the study of planetary cycles and their effects on human behavior. Understanding the daily movement of this energy helps you to be on time in your life with the right attitude.

The earth turning on its axis gives us night and day. The Moon orbiting the earth in 29.6 days gives our monthly cycles. The Earth orbits the Sun in a year and gives us Seasons. Astrology is the study of seasonal changes. Everything moves with this energy. Everything runs its course.

When you look at a model of the Universe Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are all orbiting the Sun. They all have seasons. This creates all the energy that is moving that collectively effects what we are experiencing.
There's a metaphysical principle dealing with the relationship of the microcosm and macrocosm that says, "As above, so below. As within, so without." What is going on in the sky at any given time is telling the story of what is going on below at that moment. The information that Astrology provides helps us understand what is going on. It helps us know what time it is. Is it time to plant? Is it time to reap? There is a time a place for everything.

A soul comes into life at exactly the moment in time when the planetary conditions are perfect for what that soul needs to experience. The map of the sky at the exact moment that you took your first breath tells your story. Do you know yours?

Every New Moon, Full Moon and Planetary alignment is telling us day after day the energy we are dealing with. My intention is to describe these energies to help you have a smoother flow with your daily life.
