Art by Julie Zarate

SUN enters Scorpio, Sun shines the light on Scorpio themes, looking deeper within, instincts, motivation, hidden resources, secrets, taboo topics, occult, taxes and death.

SUN in Scorpio, Sun shines the light on death/dying, our passion and fears. Light shines on to areas that are hidden within, Scorpio is death, letting go of old, to live renewed and regenerated once more. And at times you have to face the part that is decaying, falling away.
And you can’t forget, passion, sex and power. Some of these things will play a part during Sun transit in Scorpio.
Go deeper into issues when they come up, let the intensity of the situation, move you beyond to transform and change you.

Sun joins and meets up with Jupiter on the 26th, new information from the Mercury/Jupiter meet up from last week 18th, may come in and changes situation.

Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all in Scorpio highlighting the opportunity of Jupiter’s journey.
Change, opportunity, expansion and growth, but it will be intense, deep and emotional thanks to the Scorpio feel.

mercury in scorpio

Mercury enters Scorpio, leaves behind the light, fluffy vibe of Libra and enters into the world of hidden thoughts and deep emotions of water sign Scorpio. This is where life gets a little or a lot more interesting, deep, darker, mysterious and maybe even messy, however it brings in transformation and healing. It allows the subconscious to become conscious.
Mercury is the planet of how you think, think about things, how you communicate and share information. Stays until Nov 5-6th.
Your thoughts/mind/conversation will be wanting to explore deeper issues, you will want to take the conversation to places of truth, get to the heart of the matter, your mind may become sharp, obsessive and probing it won’t be happy just skimming the surface anymore, you seek some intensity, intimacy and bonding as Scorpio brings this energy into all that it touches. Not for the faint hearted.
Keep an eye out for any fears, phobias, and shadows that are lurking about, as you may feel this part of Scorpion vibe.
You may also, feel more, your psychic ability is heightened also, so pay attention to this to help you read between the lines when you need to.
It’s instinctual, primal and raw.

MARS opposite Chiron, Mercury opposite Uranus.

It may be a prickly day with these two aspects. First off Mars opposite Chiron brings in some kind of hurts as the wound is being poked at. You may feel like your interest or desire cannot be acted on, you just cannot see a way to do this, so some frustration, pissed of emotions may emerge.
Add this to the mix, Mercury/Uranus, is the plan changes, but you may not want it to. So you have to change your mind, look at it differently, go with the flow.
Make adjustments, don’t go on the attack. This will not work out.
Work through the emotions that come up for you, and they will be the ones that make you uncomfortable, annoyed, as Chiron is involved, brings it to the surface.
Take a slower, gentler way through the day.

MARS squares SATURN, this is a testy pair, you my feel like the thing that you want is taking a long time to take off or come about. Mars wants to take action towards desired goals or plan. Saturn blocks or limits you, so hold back, be patient. Keep in mind this does give you time to go over your goals and plans.

*
Venus is quincunx Chiron, a sore point may also be troubling you here, Venus is what you want, and Mars the action you take.
So maybe delays, frustration and angst comes along with this one.
Also some doubt and doubling guessing yourself, as Chiron brings in past wounds. You might find that this is causing some of the delays or limits around Mars really taking action. Check in with self to see if you are putting up barriers or walls, is this the delay/procrastination?

Jupiter-In-Scorpio

Can you feel it! Might be the key words during this transit.

Jupiter, planet of luck, expansion, magnifies all that is touched, is getting ready to leave Libra, and enter the deep, deep waters of Scorpio.
You will want too or maybe not? go into the depth of emotions, this is an inner journey for sure. What hides underneath may certainly come up with Jupiter magnifying all that is hidden.
Maybe an exploration of your inner most secretive you.

Pluto rules Scorpio – death – rebirth – regeneration and ultimately transformation,
This is a 13 month journey, so brace yourself.

Mercury/Sun square to Pluto, as you all know square are intense aspects
in astrology. So….it may have an intense vibe to the days.

Mercury and Pluto may be somewhat of a mindf**k, you may not be able to let go of something running around in your head. You can have a very probing mind, as you want to go deep. You may want something sorted, the truth. Great for detective work, doing any psychological analyzing. Words may come out of your mouth and once out they may change or transform a situation.

Sun meets up with Pluto too, ego or identity may go through some kind of transformation here. Sun shines the light on some deeper issue/conflict that’s lurking under the surface.

Anything Pluto is always about breaking something down, to be built up again, the healing power of transformation. Usually through some intensity.
Watch the Pluto part which brings in the power plays, control issues or some kind of struggle.

Moon will be in Gemini during this phase, your mind will be quick, curious and over active.

Venus and Mars, get it on!

Venus(what you want) and Mars(action, what you do to get it), both trine Pluto, deep soul urges, desires and goals may kick in, with some positive action, you can very well manifest with this one. Be sure to settle and ground your energy down. Face the future, know you have got the power.
This is building now. To this.
Mars and Venus completely connect up on the 6th, day of the full moon in Aries also. Your desires and actions may come together, this could be the point of the physical manifestation of what you want!
Pluto is involved always brings in the power of transformation, regeneration and healing. Being in a harmonious aspect it’s more creative, intense and passionate then on the disruptive side. Also it brings in a feeling of you have to go there! you might have been a little fearful before maybe it’s a taboo person or thing, as Pluto rules all of those things.
Get down and get dirty 😉 and have a really good time.

VENUS opposite Neptune, love, money and beauty, gets touched by Neptune’s alluring ways, its looks and feels lovely, it shines and sparkles in your eyes. But…. does it really?
Illusion, delusion, deception can float with this one.
Use this time creatively, tap into the magic of spirit, music, perhaps dream a little while.

Mercury enters Libra, you will want to be thinking, talking about Love, being more social and interacting with others. Love and relationships are on your mind. It’s easier to work things out, talk it out. You can get the other point of view. Collaborate, cooperate. Sun and Mercury both in cardinal air.

Moon in Capricorn helps to keep it real, grounded and to take it serious.

There’s some intensity in the air, things are changing, perhaps getting clearer perhaps not. You feel like you need to find a way or to know the way, forward. . But you can’t Saturn wants you to pace yourself, look at what’s in front of you. If things feel blocked, they will eventually get unblocked your job now is patience, perseverance.

Mars opposite Neptune – 23-26th, a level of uncertainty in areas of faith, idealism, trust and action can come into play. Neptune brings in the illusion or delusion part, its foggy.
You don’t know yet, which way it goes.

Mercury square Saturn, then opposes Chiron – 25-28th, brings in information, conversations that may bring up some pain, hits the sore spot, Saturn narrow things down, delays, limits, restricts here. Work with the facts, keep calm and keep it real, have a methodical mind during this transit. Also don’t jump ahead of yourself. Watch the negative self talk or talk, mastering your thoughts and mind.

Jupiter quincunx Chiron – 19-27th, making adjustments, maybe having to let go of something or someone. This may also have been an ideal, belief, attitude or even something of truth.
It’s a climb to the mountain top, and to rise you have to let go and change.
Spirit transcends.

Moon in Sagittarius, you are seeking the truth, a way forward, a goal to aim for now.

Balsamic moon phase, time before the new moon, you may really feel like winding down, feeling like letting go, that even apart of you is literally dying away into a nothingness. Ideally it’s an internal, quite time of the moon. You may still be releasing after the Full moon in Pisces, wrapping things up, the endings.
Moon has just entered Virgo, ground down into earthy realms, looking at the details.
*
Venus quincunx Chiron, love, self-esteem, beauty, relationship hit a bit of a sore spot over the last few days, some little annoyance perhaps got in the way of you really just enjoying the Venus/Jupiter aspect which was also about. You may have felt hopeful/optimistic for something or someone, but felt the pain, or disappointment of the quincunx. You work through the vulnerabilities and feeling uncomfortable, aware what it has brought up for you.
*
Just as Venus comes off her aspect to Chiron she meets up with Uranus, an unusual, surprise or sudden bit comes into play. You like excitement, some relief perhaps.
Uranus brings in insight out of the blue, the unexpected!
