Fire! Intensity! Passion! Are you ready for this? You may think you’re ready but are you really ready? This is not so much a month to be blown away but swept away by your desire to experience something more profound on some level. The fantastic thing about this on a soul level is that no matter what form this experience takes, we will learn and change from having gone through it.
Passion and desire – and how these impel us to do or pursue whatever (or whomever) it is we want are themes that kick-start the month when the Sun and Venus meet in Scorpio. Mercury now direct re-enters Scorpio on the 8th when we will see four planets in the sign of transformations. The full Moon in Taurus on the 6th is connecting us to our emotional desires and what it is we need now. If you follow this month’s Scorpio transits through to the 22nd when the Sun moves off into Sagittarius, then you will see the progression between what we desire, our pursuit of these desires, our ability to talk about them and then our ability to realise them especially on the 21st when the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Saturn are all conjunct in Scorpio and making a sextile with BOTH of Scorpio’s rulers – Mars and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn. Mercury joins the transformational party on the 8th allowing us to tackle those feelings and fears we’ve kept hidden while the Moon moves on into her ruling sign of Cancer and trines the Sun/Venus/Saturn conjunction and this is when we must steer clear of avoidance tactics or withdrawal if deep emotions get stirred up.
The 13th sees Venus and Saturn make an exact conjunction in Scorpio and please remember that these two planets have zip, zero, nada, nix, nil, zilch in common. This conjunction squares the Moon/Jupiter conjunction that is happening in Leo right now and what we need to bear in mind is that if our relationships do not have a rock-solid foundation now and we feel our needs are not being met, this may result in an ending. Neptune is about to turn direct again in Pisces. While he has been retrograde we can say the blinkers have been off on some level and this happens the same day as Venus enters Sagittarius and squares Neptune. Some of us may experience a desire for freedom and so sever chains accordingly but again, we need to look carefully at whether we are actually chained and as Venus moves to trine Uranus in Aries, whether or not we are just breaking those chains for the sake of it. Watch what you say as Mercury in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Leo on the 17th and then meets Saturn on the 19th as you won’t be able to take your words back now especially when on the 21st a four planet conjunction takes place in Scorpio and that sextile with Pluto and Mars occurs. Whatever ends now cannot be resurrected again so please bear this in mind.
Happy Birthday, Sagittarius as the Sun enters your sign on the 22nd and a new Moon appears on the same day. It’s time to think freedom and new adventures linked to learning and that theme of liberation as a Grand Fire Trine forms with the Moon and Venus conjunct in Sag and as the Sun and Moon continue to impact on Sagi’s ruler Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries and we have another Grand Fire Trine on the 27th. Mercury joins in the party on the 28th and trines Uranus in Aries on the 30th. Yes, things may end, transform and take unexpected turns but it’s all designed to bring us the experience of freedom and expansion from following our passions and desire to live life to the full. The message of the month is not so much to give in to desire, but to look at what your desires represent – usually a desire for more life or a bigger slice of it, and then head towards that.
