Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio: The personal planets move primarily into a house of unconsciousness for you this month, though they are all direct and powerful right now. Still, September is a month of reorientation, of setting a stage, with July/August having functioned as intense peaks and releasing of pressure valves of what is no longer useful to you. September is a good time to make sure you have moments alone, that you are speaking deeply to yourself, and sleeping much and eating well. For October and November will be very busy, and very important months for you this year. On September 14ththere will be a Full Moon at 21 degrees Pisces, aligned with Neptune in a house that has to do with joyousness in life, having of children and caring for them, loving a partner, personal expression, creativity, and Neptune here really makes these feelings ethereal, out of this world, detached from grounded stability, even, but romantic, unbelievable, fulfilling. It’s a very ethereal, spiritual, deeply feeling aspect, yet detached, too, Neptune’s sense of love being impersonal, for the whole, and divorced from personal possessiveness or neediness. Yet this Full Moon is quite stressed from the earthly plane. Mars is directly opposite in your house of wider social connections and visions for yourself in the real world, as well as future-minded goals, a placement that puts Mars in a more impersonal position, with Neptune depersonalizing further, to the point that though there is a heated need for fulfillment of personal desires, there’s a sense that biding your time, paying attention to others impersonally, and to a certain extent living within the huge realm of your own emotional capacity is where fulfillment is coming from at the moment. And Jupiter is expounding these feelings by pulling the opposition into a tense T-square, speaking to you from your house of income. Well, there could be money to be made this month, and in a sense it comes through playing upon people’s ideals and loyalties. That’s the thing about this aspect that unnerves me; it’s one of playing, or toying, with reality for the sake of an ideal, which can be anything. Lying to yourself is another danger here. Scorpios don’t really do that, but still, it can be hard to see where your motivation really lies around this time. There’s a real desire for sexual, physical fulfillment this month too that somehow seems not the right place or time, yet the desires are there. Perhaps it’s best to be creatively focused as much as possible. Then on September 28ththere’s a nourishing, stand-alone New Moon at 5 degrees Libra cresting in your house of unconsciousness. Now this a Moon of gathering your forces inward, recharging, self-nourishing, basically reigning in and speaking to yourself again. Perhaps the world without seems a real mess right now, and to see clearly, you must touch base with that deeper core of yourself, that is not so privy to outside forces, trends, or the motions of the moment.
