Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio: This month, Scorpio, there are Summer Eclipses, building upon the themes begun a whole year ago when the Eclipses in the Cancer-Capricorn axis began, and were crystallized last January when Eclipses occurred in the month of Capricorn. Whatever has been building energy since those times has now gained enough traction to warrant another weeding out, and release, which is what Eclipses do—they strip to the very kernel what we are striving for and give us new clay, or information and circumstances, to work with. So there is a Total Solar Eclipse on July 2ndat 10 degrees Cancer and linked by trine to your sign, which is a very beneficial aspect. The Eclipsed Moon is opposite Saturn, loosely, as well as positively supported by Uranus in Taurus, your opposite sign. This Moon will hit you in a house of objective thought and greater discernment of the world and its myriad manifestations. It is a mental house, though you have a deep-feeling and emotional sign here, thus indicating that the way you understand other people and situations is more from your intuition and your gut than with your head. Saturn though is in your house of personal mind, and asking that you make clear divisions of things, that you structure your thoughts, your days, and consider your words carefully—there is a tension here between a way of feeling that is intrinsic, that belies your deeply sensitive nature, and a necessity to act well, and consciously, with security and the future in mind. A partner may be involved in some way in this Eclipse because of the connection with Uranus cresting in your house of others, or relationship. You are basically going through an upheaval of self here, and bootcamp mentally, a necessity to strengthen your mind an your long-term focus, to learn what to keep within, and what to show others. There may be a feeling of having to control your wild feelings, yet being unable to—perhaps there is a safe place to let them out around July 2nd, because let out they must be, as your feeling-nature is who you are, what you are, and should be validated as the basis of your whole life. But also perhaps with some self-control. Then on July 16ththere will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn, hitting that personal subjective thinking house, connected to your ruler, Pluto, and loosely Saturn also. Venus will be near the Sun at this time, with the Moon erring towards Pluto and Saturn. You’re going to be serious-minded towards months end, and perhaps forced in some way to deal with how you really feel on things, because you won’t be able to hide anything. It feels good to release these tensions though, and Venus in a way will coax out your feelings and sanction them—there is benefit, even reward, in being able to channel your emotions in a productive way, for they are greatly powerful this month. Still, there is an ongoing, intense, transformation afoot here that is reorienting your mind for deeper growth, and when Pluto crosses your Immum-Coeli, a few years from now, after all this mental boot-camp, you will be ready for the total transformation of self and higher manifestation that is possible when that happens.
