Alacazem 2011.10.20

October 20 to 27, 2011   Visible Planets: Morning: Mars and Jupiter  Evening: Venus

As Mother Nature continues to paint the Opus Magnus of her year, I find myself experiencing perpetual feelings of humility, gratitude and grace. Colors blaze as light ignites the landscape and snow-capped peaks rise up to meet the brilliant blue of Colorado’s autumn skies. It’s spirit-touching and soul-moving, stunning and inspirational, to say the least. The magnificence of seasonal cycles and the mysteries of life and death, birth and rebirth will forever intrigue and seduce us. And the metamorphic month of October is the time when the Libra/Scorpio magic is in full force. Why not surrender to its power and transform?

Good luck and may the beauty of Libra and passion of Scorpio of be with you!





Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) As the Sun enters Scorpio, you may find yourself feeling deep emotions and strong desires, especially in regard to others. The realistic, sobering light of Saturn in your solar 7th house of relationship has pruned the bush and actually ended superficial sharing and pairing. For now, it’s all about authentic, honest, accountable people and interactions. Hang in there and do your best.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20) A planetary shift from Libra to Scorpio highlights the people, places and things you find most important in your life today. Don’t be surprised if you are suddenly busy with friends, family or significant others. In fact, it’s time to think of and do for others, rather than staying home alone. Great pleasure comes via sharing and pairing. Go ahead, reach out!

Gemini (May 21-June 21) As zodiac Libra draws to a close and the month of mystery and magic begins, take some time to honor the numinous and divine. Mystical, metaphysical realms beckon, calling you to explore what lies beneath the superficial facade of our 3D material world. A practitioner of the arts at heart, pull out your wand and dust off your broom. Get ready to ride.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) You may be feeling extra busy or highly motivated to get it all done before the snow flies. Mighty Mars in your solar 2nd house of personal resource and self-sufficiency pushes you to take action, no matter how much you want to sleep in. Capitalize on the desire to go forth. Just make sure you’re not running in circles or losing your cool. Good luck!

Leo (July 23-Aug.22) Motivated Mars in your sign sextiles self-disciplined Saturn in Libra this week, giving you a boost when it comes to focusing energy in effective and efficient ways. Take some time to outline projects, make lists and gather materials before getting started. Then proceed with patience and calm, one step and one day at a time. Have fun and get ‘er done!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) Planetary power in seductive Scorpio opens doors of thought and communication regarding intimacy. Trust and faith are keys to a happy, healthy life, fear and doubt are not. In matters of relationship, we teach others how to treat us. If you don’t feel good about how you’re being treated, look at what you’re doing. Be responsible and experience freedom.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Birthday cakes and candles disappear as you get serious about another solar year. Take a personal inventory of self and self-esteem as you start out, remembering the only person you can possibly change is you. Acceptance, responsibility and right action, balanced with forgiveness, trust and faith are keys to a successful trip. Shake out the magic carpet and get ready to ride!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) The Sun moves into Scorpio on Oct. 23rd and initiates a zodiac month of rebirth and renewal. Mark your special day of birth upon the calendar and plan to do something that’s first and foremost good for you. Give yourself the gifts of self-care, self-nurturing and self-forgiveness as you begin the annual journey of learning, love and light. Happy birthdays!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) As days shorten and nights grow longer, you may feel the eternal pull of seasonal change shifting soul and spirit. Surrender and self-reflection, meditation and prayer are allies at this metamorphic time of year. Doing the inner work, listening to the sounds of silence and seeking solace in nature take you where you need to go. Cultivate faith and experience peace.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) As the Moon wanes and darkness cloaks the night, prepare for a zodiac month of heightened inspiration and hope. Consider who and what you admire and aspire to be and do. Take a bird’s eye view of your life situation and circumstances. What excites you to dream and manifest? We become like what we surround ourselves by, so make it good.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) Achievement and recognition for a job well done are motivators in your week. Staying on task and doing your best guarantees success. Even the smallest jobs bring satisfaction now; improving the world and making you feel good about yourself in the process. When dealing with others, refrain from bossy, authoritarian behaviors. Focus on progress, not perfection.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) The watery depths of sensual, seductive Scorpio inspire rather than frighten ocean-loving creatures of the sea and surf. Embrace the mystery and live the magic of this very mystical time of year. Light the candles, carve the pumpkins and prepare for spirits in the night. Fun and games, love and laughter bring joy and happiness to friends and family. Enjoy!
