We are in for a harrowing week. Every Scorpio season is intense, as the name would imply. However not only is it the start to a new astrological season, it is also the last and final eclipse in the Scorpio/Taurus axis. This partial eclipse also features explosive Mars energies which is sure to tear down the remnants of whatever indolent structures are lazing around our orbit. The week starts out with the Sun ingressing into Scorpio, the brooding, intelligent sign that analyzes everything to the nth degree. Throughout the Scorpio season we are presented with our own shadow selves, experiencing a little mini ego death. Scorpio season is a time when we shed the outer layer in order to expose the vulnerable and soft underbelly of the newborn self.
The Partial Lunar Eclipse on October 28th in Taurus at 5° 9’ and this day is not one to be missed. It is impossible to escape the intensity of the times that we are in and this eclipse will definitely not let us look away. On the same day as the Full Moon, Mars and Mercury oppose Jupiter rx, which will force us to pivot dramatically how we think and what we believe regarding our own personal political and religious views. We may also be forced to communicate and speak out against religious/political hypocrisies. This can be within the realm of gendered rights and how that plays a role within the religious and political systems.
Mars and Mercury meet the day after, sending our minds into a tailspin of potentiality, ideals, conspiracies, and truth seeking. There will be so much that comes out to light during these times that it will be so hard to make sense at first what exactly is going on, but the Mars/Mercury connection is like strength training for the mind and building our mental agility, allowing us to think in ways that we have never thought of before.
Feel the seeds of passion emerging with the Sun now in Scorpio! We have just entered the new astrological season and it will surely be a potent one. Dig deep into the crevasses of your super egos and pull out the culprit of what holds you in the past. We’re feeling and seeing much more than we have before. The reality of our situations are becoming abundantly clear.

We are seeding a new way of understanding today. There is a realization of a spiritual structure that has been hiding within that is made manifest. The hermit comes down from the mountain with an important message of deep wisdom and truth that must be shared with the world. We are seeing with our higher selves today and the cosmos have opened up the realms for true sight. We may be feeling called to listen to, hear or engage with spiritual discourse which opens our minds and hearts to understand better what humanity is needing.Moon > Pisces at 1:32 am, conjunct Saturn rx, trine Sun, trine Mercury, trine Mars, sextile Jupiter rx. Sun trine Saturn rx.
Wanting to hide from all of the messy details of a particular relationship, friendship or even just ourselves today seems to be the MO. We can at times feel a bit foggy or cloudy around what others are needing/wanting from us, which can cause some miscommunications at times but if you are listening with your spirit you will hear the meanings of the words below the façade.

Moon enters into Aries today and if you can believe it, it is the only major aspect happening. Moon in Aries with no other major aspects besides an inconjunct with Mars can bring about irritating situations that fluff up the feathers. It may be that you are noticing the things around you that you can no longer stand, want to deal with or let stand any longer. This is the precursor experience to the eclipse that is to come in just a couple of days. It will be a good day to journal what comes up and to see how your reactions to frustrations and anger is being managed.
Moon > Aries at 3:01 am.
The eclipse is building steam, and we are feeling the pressures starting to rise. The Mars energies tomorrow are already creeping in with the Moon in Aries connecting with Chiron and the North Node. You may be getting impatient for change, wanting something to happen or anticipating it. Use this energy productively! Do not waste it on frivolous activities such as starting drama, fights, and arguments – unless of course, it is something that is totally necessary. It is also a cathartic day to release intense emotions that have been stored within the body for a very long time.

Huge day today with so many massive energies going around. It is the Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus as well as explosive Mars energies which activate much heated debate, fights, and flare ups. If you are one who likes to stay out of the drama, it may be impossible for you to get away from it even this time. The release that everyone has been needing comes through and each person will not necessarily have an eloquent way of doing so. Be prepared for tempers to flare, and for people’s patience to subside quickly. Take this time to focus on what you want to change in your life as the energies for movement are undeniable.

We are needing to change the way we think, feel, and behave about a particular topic and with Mars and Mercury conjunction, there is agility and mobility happening. We are beginning to really feel into the collective’s experiences and can no longer ignore the individual responsibility that we have to creating change on this earth. We may also be grappling with our own addictions and pattern of behavior that stem from deep insecurity. This isn’t a light hearted time and it is important to also see the reality of the situation without needing to dull the pain with external pleasures. Notice your relationship to your sense of pleasure as that relationship is surely changing now.
