As October draws to a close, we walk on fallen leaves and watch them swirl as winds whip and the air grows colder. Some gather firewood for winter, kindle fires and indulge in the cozy warmth of flickering flames and crackling logs. For others, heaters are turned on and pilots ignited. For some, passive solar applications help warm houses and reduce heating costs. It feels good to partner up with our good, old Father Sun, who, by the way, joins up with Grandmother Moon @ 05°54′ Scorpio on Oct. 28th at 5:14 p.m. MDT to initiate a new lunar cycle and month. It’s time for mystery and magic. Have fun and watch out for witches!
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The Scorpio New Moon marks an important spiritual crossroads, where choices are momentous. Will we cling to the old, or turn toward the new? What is dead or dying must be recognized as such if we want to live vital, healthy lives. Focus on right action and what you know is good. Take the high road whenever possible.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The Scorpio zodiac time is one of ascension and debut for the Bull. Following six months of family focus and domestic attention, you are ready to get out of the house and into the world. Start with important, primary relationships and one-to-one commitments. Spend quality time doing things and being with people you value.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Creative mentality and artistic manifestation are favored now as multi-talented Mercury and beauty-loving Venus fan flames of aesthetic inspiration and imaginative genius. Put ideas down on paper, sketch, wrench, carve or paint. Use your hands in innovative and productive ways to make your world and life a work of magic.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Steamy, dreamy, magical, mystical Scorpio opens doors to your heart and soul. Breathe in the metaphysical power of these days and times. The next two weeks are packed with exciting opportunities for expansive change regarding romance and finance. Love transforms and freedom ignites. Look at the bigger picture and see forever.
Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
A fresh lunar cycle in your solar 4th house of home and family initiates a phase of domestic attention and improvement. It’s time to attack messes, organize projects and enhance living space. Do your best to accept others as they are and heal wounds in relationships via forgiveness. Look for the good and discover the grace of gratitude.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
The Scorpio New Moon kicks off a lunar month of major change and restructure regarding personal priorities in relationships. It’s time to accept responsibility for present life situations and circumstances. Victim mentalities or feeling less than simply serves no positive purpose and prevents forward motion. Awaken to the new you.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
As the Sun and Moon conjoin in neighboring Scorpio, lovely Librans embrace responsibility and focus on self. Understanding the power of personal choice is key to joy and success. Use it like a magic wand and wave it over whatever needs to change. Three weeks of Mercury retrograde has provided plenty of time for thought. Now take action.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Happy Birthday month to crafty, charismatic Scorpios! It’s time to celebrate another revolution around the Sun. This year, make your special day truly special. Be kind and gentle to yourself, enjoy life and appreciate both what you have and what you don’t have. A fresh lunation unites body, mind and spirit. Do good and feel good.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Scorpio teaches us that everything passes; there is no actual death, just constant metamorphosis. And if there’s a theme for Archers in ‘08, this is it. Knowing change and understanding the process of evolution is key to spiritual health and physical well-being. Freedom is the cornerstone of your foundation and vital to your life. Be you.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
The first of three Saturn/Uranus oppositions takes place on Election Day, and this week the energies of conservative vs. liberal increase and strengthen. Polarizing themes of culture, revolution and change run rampant. Personally, this is a time to be calm and maintain composure. Focus on inspirational work and stay on the path.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A magnetically powerful Scorpio New Moon on Oct. 28th initiates a lunar month of career focus and professional achievement. With it comes the dictate and desire to redefine goals and work toward realistic accomplishments. A long period of relative confusion is coming to an end. Stay in action and simply do the next right thing.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
The Saturn/Uranus opposition takes place in 40-year cycles and on Nov. 4th it happens in the Pisces/Virgo polarity. This heralds a significant milestone and powerful touchstone for the Fish. Magic is everywhere, in and all around you. Embrace creative change, look for the twinkle, the sparkle, the shimmer and go with the glow.
