Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio: Profound changes are in store this month, Scorpio, far-reaching and serious changes which take a long time to develop, but we have had time. A pair of Eclipses this month build on themes begun last February, and here we begin to sniff hints of fruition. But first of all, a couple things--Mercury shall Retrograde on the 13th in a sign of its rulership, Virgo, in your house of greater social integration. This is a good time to revisit old friends, to reconnect, as well as to send out messages on matters you may have confronted previously but not seen through. Anyway much good can be done with this Retrograde motion if you have the patience and the interest to glean over things that are somewhat past. And this month Venus will oppose your ruler Pluto along your axis of mind. This is the traditional configuration of tragic love, but it need not be, especially along such an axis as your own mind on a subjective level crossed by objective truths. Pluto has long been rousing the tendencies and temperament of your mind and prodding you to develop new pathways; here Venus seems to suggest that a path has opened up which you may cross with a new, open, but intent mind, for Pluto does nothing lightly. Perhaps an organization, a group, or a certain faith calls for you own profound insights, your particular kind of deep focus. There may be by this transit opportunities for all kinds of mind expansion, opportunities in travel, in higher education, publishing, and/or settling a case in or out of court. On August 7th the Lunar Eclipse will occur at 15 degrees Aquarius, the bottom of your chart, the house of core being, and oppose the Sun and Mars crossing the apex of your chart, the Midheaven and your house of career, while being well supported by Jupiter in your house of deep secrets, repressions, unconscious motivation. This is an extremely fortuitous Lunar Eclipse for you. You might see something come to fruition professionally you have long wanted as Mars, your conscious ego-driven self, is pressed towards personal advancement and the Sun shines opportunity into this realm. But the Moon, the Moon here brings the true, deep, personal motivation needed to really make your mark; it brings your child-self into it, your old dreams, your long nursed wants, and indicates an opportunity towards profound wholeness and achievement. Jupiter indicates this, too, from your secret realm, that what is sought to be satiated here is from a whole, unified, and dignified place, that it is your spirit feeling itself large and imbued with love, that success is just a byproduct of a real inner gyration. And finally the Solar Eclipse on August 21st will also have quite the bearing on your career but from a different perspective. The Solar Eclipse shall introduce entirely new material, while the Lunar Eclipse ripens the old. Occurring at 28 degrees Leo, the star of Regulus, aligned with Mars, but integrating also all the fire signs through Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius--we have here a Grand Trine in the signs of action, power, and spirit. Saturn has had a death grip on your finances the last couple years and here is called upon to release from its damp position of order--for from well-orderedness does come freedom to blossom. Uranus brings profundity and flexibility of mind, also from a house of order, in which chaos has blown gustily through your very seat of health and daily life, while Mars presses forward your agenda on this world. Your experiences, the way you handle real and dangerous challenges is key to your outer success.
