UNIVERSAL OVERVIEW; On October 6, 2012, Saturn moves into Scorpio. Saturn typically stays in one sign for approximately 2 1/2 years. Saturn moves out of Scorpio in September 2015 (with a short five month visit in Sagittarius from January – May 2015). Saturn provides the area of our life to implement a self-disciplined regiment [...]… Read the rest

CHOP WOOD, carry water. Life on Earth appears, at least externally, to continue much the same as usual, even in these days after the end of the Mayan calendar. And yet, there are those whose lives have been affected in profound ways recently, who will agree with the theory that this month represents both a major ending and an initiation into a necessarily new phase of life.
This coming week, we again engage the Pluto-Uranus energies of transformative change. There’s a bit of a sandwich effect to the week — on one side, Uranus squares the Sun (on Tuesday) and on the other side, Pluto conjoins the Sun (next Sunday). In the middle, at the heart of our sandwich, is the Full Moon (on Friday), in which the Moon closely opposes Pluto and squares Uranus.
In other words, this week the Sun and the Full Moon activate the longer-term influence of the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square.… Read the rest

THE PACE of life has quickened yet again. We may feel a bit like one of those cartoon characters who, as they are hurrying somewhere, spend a good portion of the time running as fast as they can in mid-air before finally engaging forward motion.
This may be our usual experience for this time of year, when we load our plates (literally and figuratively) with much more than we can sanely or physically handle. And this year, on top of that usual seasonal overwhelm, we are feeling an extra energetic “push” due to this month marking the end of the Mayan calendar.
We don’t know for sure if the Mayans knew something specific about this time in history, or if there are other explanations for their calendar stopping at this point. But, no matter the original reason, the shared human expectation around these “End Times” – whether we anticipate doomsday or ascension — is creating a rather large wave in the mass consciousness field.… Read the rest

IN KEEPING with the analogy I often share with clients who are experiencing a Saturn transit, I spent this morning pruning trees in my yard. Because of the way my astrological chart is configured, I’ve actually been working with Saturn transits for about a year — and yet, now that Saturn is directly opposing my Taurus Sun, it is especially appropriate for me to be pruning out what is dead, stagnant, or no longer enhances my life experience.
If you have planets or points in early degrees of Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus or Leo, you may closely relate to the need for symbolic or literal tree-pruning right now. But even if you are not working with direct transits, now that Saturn is in Scorpio, each of us is being instructed to clean up, clear out, and get rid of the dross in some area of our lives.
SCORPIO is an enigmatic sign in many ways. It is known for its directness and intensity, but also can be secretive and be driven by unconscious motivations. It has the capacity to go through transformational experiences and emerge anew on the other side, much as the mythical phoenix rises from the ashes.… Read the rest

We’re moving closer to that anticipated date of December 21, 2012. But the date we need to really think about is December 22 because life, the earth, the universe will all go on. The question is, where do we want it to go and what do we want to be doing? It is more important than ever that we focus on our day-to-day journey now, as with each step, choice, lesson and experience, we are shifting the dynamics of our entire ascension path. And October brings us some important energy to encourage us to start taking action on what we have learned. In fact, the keywords for this month are ‘reclaim’ and repurpose’.
There are several major events in October that present opportunities for us to reclaim and repurpose our energy. The first is the movement of Saturn from Libra, where it has been since October 2009, to Scorpio. This also takes us full circle from the last Saturn change from Libra to Scorpio, in December 1982. What decisions or choices, opportunities or events were happening then that are being repeated now?… Read the rest

THE GROUND beneath our feet shifts this week, as four planets change signs and Jupiter stations retrograde. When a planet changes signs or direction, we experience a shift in our energetic foundation — sometimes subtly, sometimes more noticeably, depending on our own natal chart configuration.
It is rare to have so many planets making these shifts within a few days’ time. It indicates that we are now ready to shift our perspective and, in many ways, to take the next step.
Here’s the rundown for the week, ordered by time: Venus enters Virgo (Tuesday), Jupiter goes retrograde (Thursday), Mercury and Saturn both enter Scorpio (Friday), and Mars enters Sagittarius (Saturday).
OF THE PLANETS shifting this week, Saturn is the slowest moving, and so carries the greatest influence energetically. Saturn is known as the Teacher of the zodiac, since it requires us to be disciplined and responsible. If you’re familiar with the characters in the Harry Potter books, think of Saturn in the personage of Professor McGonagall — stern but fair, no-nonsense, but with our growth and learning always the top priority.… Read the rest
