That there will be an increase in everything that is Scorpio.
Jupiter “expands what it touches” and it entered the sign of Scorpio on October 10th for the next thirteen months so we move from the imagery of Libra to the imagery of Scorpio and this is a significant shift.
So we run through the list of Jupiter keywords and we run through the list of Libra keywords (what’s leaving) and we run through the list of Scorpio keywords (what’s coming in) but if I had to pick ONE.
If I had to pick ONE Scorpio keyword right here right now. What would it be? What IS Scorpio?
I’ll tell you a story which I may have told before about an evening with a Scorpio friend of mine.
I told him a secret. Well, he pried it out of me. Relentless, he was. He pried it out of me and it was something about my family and he called it like he saw it. He called that person I was talking about a piece of shit.
He made an instant judgement call. And he was right. Still, it shocked me. So at the same time he was honest, totally straightforward, harsh, truthful, and yet also supportive because embedded within his insult of THAT person was support of me. Although you might not see it unless you looked closely. And in that moment, that moment of telling, he understood why I was the way I was. The pieces fit now.
To me that’s the best of Scorpio. They see clearly, they see instantly, they support you. No bullshit.
Now, that’s not all Scorpio is. Every sign has its good and bad and neutral but this memory is a good memory.
Jupiter entering Scorpio means there’s going to be more truth, more unpleasant truth, but also more support. Thing is this though… you won’t get that undying support UNTIL you tell the honest truth, the honest story. UNTIL YOU SHOW YOURSELF.
I delayed class. We begin November 1st. Here’s the link. Write me for details! email@example.com
Some thoughts about Pluto going direct in Libra Season can be found HERE at my Tree City Witch column over at Patheos Pagan in which I don’t actually recommend you do blood magick. Do your craft at your own risk, my friends.
Here’s a taste:
Another way this could play out and this scenario is pretty likely actually: you will become obsessed with love. Libra rules love. You will become obsessed with desire, with feeding your desire, gaining power over your desire. You will feel unstoppable, insatiable, hungry. The result of this I’m not so sure. I don’t know your chart. But I guarantee you this: you will feel your desire multiply and you will want to feed.

What it’s all about:
JUPITER IN SCORPIO!!
Jupiter changes signs once a year (give or take a month) so THIS MATTERS for us all, collectively, but it matters for each individual as well.
This is why we’ll be talking JUPITER, what this planetary energy means big picture, and we’ll be talking SCORPIO – the sign Jupiter is entering – and we’ll be talking YOUR CHARTS. Mars and Pluto “rule” Scorpio so those energies will get our attention as well!
Goodbye Jupiter in Libra. Hello Jupiter in Scorpio! The THEMES change!!!
And where you need to focus, chart-wise, may change for you as well!
All my classes are DISCUSSION based although lurkers are welcome!
I will post videos every week (usually from my phone, directly uploaded to the secret group. No one else can see these!)
I will bring us thought provoking discussion prompts every week.
Each chart will get discussed more than once!
I will maintain a regular presence and be available to answer questions.
We will discuss the nature of Jupiter, the nature of Scorpio, the MAJOR aspects Jupiter in Scorpio will make to the outer planets during its transit!
YOU just need to show up talk if you want, lurk if you want.
You do NOT need to know anything about astrology to enjoy this class and to learn, but it’s also suitable for astrology mavens! We will jump right in!
THIS WEEKEND we have a Mercury Mars conjunction in VIRGO.
In very plain English: YOUR MIND WILL BE ON FIRE.
And I mean this in a good way!
I’ll tell you what this weekend is good for.
-working (labor for money or labor of love)
-practical problem solving
-making changes to your health or nutrition
-organizing home and/or office
-getting the job done
-taking about food and health and wellness
You *could be* short tempered.
Mercury is your WORDS.
Virgo is critical, analytical.
Mars is energy. Mars gets irritable. Angry.
And a conjunction aspect is when the two energies are FUSED.
So there could be angry words, angry people. Could be you, could be them.
do your work, do your thing!
What’s your thing? Do it!!!!
Don’t get up in people’s drama.
Be practical, efficient, effective.
The energy suits the wisdom teachers and writers and ascetics among us the best but you social butterflies may also find some use out of this transit i.e. due to the EXTRA clean concentration you’ll have! FUEL FOR YOUR BRAIN like a good avocado!
This sky energy also suits the ACTIVISTS and public servants. It is VIRGO after all and Virgo SERVES. Virgo HELPS. VIRGO sees the problem and zooms in to fix with alarming amazing clarity and skill.
We have another interesting aspect this weekend which I’ll just mention briefly:
we have harmony between beautiful charming nice Venus and surprising electrifying URANUS.
You COULD get a windfall of love or money or both.
Venus Uranus is freedom. Freedom in the way you look and love and make your money. I like it. NO I LOVE IT. Love this weekend.
This reminds me, this morning I drew THE SUN from Crowley’s Thoth deck and I was posting about it in the class (AND YES YOU CAN STILL JOIN US) and I have his Book of Thoth and this book, this deck, is an entire world, it’s hard to excerpt and yet I liked this phrase of his about the SUN card:
FREEDOM BRINGS SANITY.
Have a beautiful weekend. Stay safe and dry my friends xoxo
Mercury has retrograded back to Leo.
The Moon is in work work work Capricorn as I type this.
This week we have an exciting inspiring passionate Mars Uranus trine (harmonious).
Mercury retro conjoins Mars on Sunday (talk talk talk)
AND THEN NEXT WEEK LISTEN TO THIS:
Sun opposes Neptune Mars enters Virgo Mercury goes direct Full Moon in Pisces SUN TRINE PLUTO Mercury re-enters Virgo
There are additional “minor” aspects of course but this is the major action andit’s all about YOUR VIRGO/PISCES axis.
You figure this out once you know your birth time which will lead you to your Rising Sign which will lead you to knowing the house division of your chart and THEN you know okay THIS is my Virgo house and THIS is my Pisces. (Yes you can hire me to help you with this.)
We all have Virgo and Pisces SOMEWHERE even if we do not have natal planets in those signs. Also, we have transiting planets in both those signs so it matters!!! Your Virgo Pisces axis matters! Tis the key to RIGHT NOW.
Y’all know I’m personal. I’m a personal, spiritual, practical astrologer. YES I talk about the collective and collective energy but your chart is YOUR CHART.
My advice for this week:
I refuse. I refuse to walk the road I usually do with this: Virgo neat and clean or messy but critical. Pisces la la la Neptune. The interaction between these two sides. Tidy and chaotic. Mercury mind and Neptune bliss and breeze. I refuse. Let me think up something a little more interesting. Give me a minute.
What I sense is this: the pressure is on.
And you will have to schedule in your Neptune moments.
I don’t know if this is more of the same old “advice” but it’s what I’m feeling here —
Virgo dominates the week, but that Full Moon in Pisces walks in the room to say:
HEY LISTEN TO ME!
I MATTER TOO.
I matter too.
And this ignored MATTER of the matter is (in) your Pisces House!
BEST part of this week is that powerful Sun Pluto trine. Your work takes on a golden hue. You’re not resentful. You’re swimming in Virgoan/Capricornian job-well-done delight.
It feels good. It is good. On top of your game you are!!!
my 2014 creation
Okay folks! I’m out for now. Find me on Facebook! We’d love to see you in the Tarot class! We start on Tuesday – it’s a six week journey into the heart of the Tarot and Tarot deck creation guidance, whether your deck is REAL or imaginary.
That said, we DO have actual artists in there and they ARE gonna make decks. Am I? Maybe someday. For me it’s more about the creative process and the discovery. It always is.
This is exactly what astrology is for. Getting unstuck.
You have a birth chart. You have to learn your birth chart.
You need to listen to a competent astrologer or other guide that you trust. One who will tell you what your strengths are and what your weaknesses/defaults are. Doesn’t have to be me, but that’s a big part of my job. I admit not everyone wants to hear about their shadow or what holds them back. But if you want to get unstuck, don’t you need to talk deep? Talk real? Not saying it’s easy.
We all need someone who will tell us the whole compassionate truth. Me too! It will do you no good to have only a YES-man in your life. You need the TRUTH. That’s how you get unstuck.
This is on my mind because I asked on my Facebook Timeline today what are you struggling with the most? And I was surprised. Most folks had existential struggles or spiritual or psychological struggles. A couple people said money and a couple people said love but most felt STUCK. How to get unstuck.
you have to know your chart and what will send you running for the hills and what you can rely on to move you forward
you have to know your transits – HAVE TO. Transits are REAL. They have a real affect on our daily lives and create larger landscapes of luck, connection, difficulty, sadness, etc.
you have to have someone you can bounce these ideas off of (someone you pay, or a good friend, perhaps both. I think this is why my chat rooms are so helpful to people!)
you have to, sometimes, surrender to stuck. There are absolutely times in life when there is NO moving forward. That’s when we see the Hanged Man or High Priestess over and over. Also some charts are predisposed to getting stuck but that leads us back to no. 1 — know thyself
I think it’s helpful to think about the nature of existence and reality and I mean this in very practical ways. How do you define forward movement? How do you define stuck? What do they both feel like. If you don’t like what you have, WHAT ARE YOU DOING DIFFERENTLY and why or why not are you doing or not doing it. And about the nature of existence or reality: is it true that we are always in flux, in motion, and ANY stasis at all is an illusion?
Do you use the Tarot? Do you consult with any oracle at all to track changes? How do you track these changes?
How do you even KNOW if you are stuck? Are you stuck or simply unwilling? Are you waiting to be taken out of your situation rather than making a move yourself? Because I wouldn’t call that necessarily stuck. See? It’s a deep topic. We must UNPACK IT like an everlasting suitcase.
I’ll tell you a secret. I’m hoping to start my on-line school in 2018. Yes I’ve been doing classes for years but times have changed and I want to create more formal offerings, with videos and a different kind of structure than many of my students have become accustomed to. Like the class I’m creating with the Sequential Artists Workshop (my Tarot class).
It’s funny because I feel like I’ve been “threatening” this for years, saying: hey you guys, you won’t have this kind of access to me forever!” But who knows… that part of it may stay the same. I enjoy it.
In either case, this topic of getting unstuck is pretty similar to procrastination which is another one of my favorite topics – and why we often are not doing what we could be doing – even when we have the time or the energy.
Tell me what you think about this in the comments or on Facebook. Are you stuck?
There is a new video up on the site. You can see it when you sign up for the Free Trial. A few beautiful PDFs as well.
My maternal great-grandmother
So I want to talk about Virgo Season. I have to talk about Virgo Season.
I am a Virgo Rising so Leo time for me is the 12th House and the ascendent is the line between the night of the 12th and the day of the 1st and here we go. At least for us Virgo Risings. BACK TO WORK. Flow better.
I know for YOU it may be different because your chart is different, but hear me out:
Virgo rules service, work, the details. Virgo people are always up to something. We are not good at rest and relaxation, especially the Risings, South Nodes, and Virgo Moons WE DO NOT STOP.
And it’s not that Leos don’t work hard. Of course they do. But every sign, every planet has it’s own particular brilliance. Virgo brilliance (some of it) is for work and the truth is I grew into my Virgo side. It wasn’t until I was my own boss that I could start to embody my massively Virgo chart.
And of course there’s more but I wanted to get us started. It is TIME to return to work and school and all the projects you put on hold for whatever reason.
I know Mercury is still RX but Mercury likes a little review! Fear not!
Return, my loves! Return!
What is Virgo to you? Do you have planets in Virgo?
If you want to get my new FREE newsletter, then send me an email! Here is a link to the first one. Sending out the second one tomorrow. Still finding my voice with it and where to situate myself, but I like it so we’ll see where it goes!
Sometimes I advocate kindness and compassion. Well, I’m not NOT advocating kindness and compassion, but today I’m advocating “be strong” because I keep seeing this guy.
The question is: strong for what?
And I feel my age truly. Turned a year older not long ago and everything is different now.
The eclipse is well-aspected, trine both Saturn and Uranus.
Why this King of Swords warning?
Because such strength and maturity is asked of you at this time, as it always is during the eclipses and not just because it’s a lot of churning energy in the air. You’re being asked to step up. Do you want to step up? I don’t want to step up. I want to nap. But I step up. Trying!!!
Whatever you’ve avoided you cannot keep avoiding. Eclipses have this way of removing any veils or hiding places and this goes for the Lunar AND the Solar.
It’s a changing of the guard. Breakthrough. Endings and beginnings.
Say so long to what was.
For some it may be scary. For others, exhilarating. You are flung from one end to the other. Think about it. Think back to recent eclipses. You’ll see. Where you were. Where you are.
And maybe for you there is SO MUCH that needs to change that you welcome such energies. I like that. I like that a lot. I wish you smooth passage.
This week is bananas so basically I’m here to tell you to be kind to yourself. That’s the entire message of this blog post.
Mercury is retrograde. The Solar Eclipse is a week from today. AND we have a cardinal t-square this week.
You KEEP trying to take control of the situation. YOU CANNOT CONTROL THE SITUATION IT IS OUT OF YOUR HANDS. But you can run so run.
I’m sitting here in the a/c, trying to cool off. I’ve BEEN sitting in the a/c trying to cool off. And let me tell you what else is on my mind.
Perfection and imperfection. How it never gets finished. It never gets done. We will die undone.
Mercury is retrograde in VIRGO. Virgo keeps fixing fixing fixing or trying to. Thinks it’s making things better when really it needs to just, sometimes, let it go.
The only thing I can think to do for you right now is draw a few cards. How to deal with Mercury. How to deal with eclipse energy. How to deal with the Venus Jupiter Pluto THING. Cardinal monster.
I was writing on Facebook that Venus Pluto IS NOT CLEAN. And y’all with Venus Pluto in your charts KNOW THIS (if you dare be honest) more than anyone and here comes Jupiter gassing it up, inflating it and I was saying that Venus Pluto is seduction but she doesn’t really care. Well, she cares about power more than love.
So what does this say about me? I’m not Venus Pluto but Moon Pluto. The house matters. I just made an astrology joke without realizing it. THE HOUSE MATTERS. Moon = house. The house makes all the difference in the world with this one. Is the Pluto party in the house of self or the other. Who are you trying to subdue? Over whom do you need power? Over WHAT?
Not sure we have the energy for such questions. Let’s just draw a few cards and I apologize I don’t have a photo of this spread for the moment so imagine it okay? Just imagine it.
Ten of Wands
Seven of Swords
Knight of Swords
