December 23 Saturn into Sagittarius

Saturn has been fine tuning house Scorpio since October 5, 2012; revising/retrograde since March 2, 2014; it is soon direct, and finally out of shadow, October 26; into Sagittarius December 23, 2014.

Trial and error was likely part of your Saturn Rx experience, for Saturn delivers TESTS. Reconfiguring past/work/goals through canny observation, perseverance and research will serve us well in the weeks ahead. Patience pays – focused work will lead to smarter, streamlined goals/power/structures as our energies move forward with drayhorse Saturn direct. 

Saturn stations direct with Pisces Chiron onside – use what you know you have to find balance.  Chiron indicates using your special gifts earned through your personal trials, while Saturn releases the problematic past in order to reform a better future. These two are all about learning how to heal through release.

Note: nuns are Saturn, Pisces. These chicks are Scorpio witchy Bene Gesserit nuns.  No mess.  Fair warning.

Uranus Retrograde 16 Aries

Uranus in Aries since May of 2010 (before GMA was born); Uranus direct December 21 at 12 degrees, it moves into Taurus in 2018.  Uranus transits by house here.

Saturn stationing direct at 16 while Uranus stations retrograde (the day after) at 16 in quincunx to one another  sets adjustments in motion for these very different energies.  Quincunx energies both desire health via pure energy expression – but they arrive at the same destination by different roads.  Saturn shows restraint, responsibilities, working steady as she goes, Capt’n.  Uranus is wild, left field, enlightenment bolts, polarities of attract/repel, eccentric.  This quincunx lasts roughly a month.

Quincunx moves us to improve wholistic health via adaptation/improvisation, changing altitude/attitude and character metamorphosis. Not as easy as it reads, believe me.  Keep what you can use, ditch the rest, metamorph what you can improve upon. 
Coal into diamonds; caterpillar into butterfly; new neural nets.

Uranus retrograde will test/reinvent/reform our reactions, our individuality, our idea schemes, we will ponder exactly what/whom/when/where we are freeing ourselves from.  We are arriving at the CRUX of KNOWING via Uranus retrograde and a series of squares with Pluto.  Look to your Aries house for deets. (see ink above)

Gift of grace:
Scorpio Saturn in mutual reception with Capricorn Pluto (while Pluto squares Aries Uranus, two more hits left) delivers a
gift of grace to the testing, perfecting, deepening of both transits/houses via an understanding – knowing the language of the country you are visiting, if you will.
They ‘get’ each other, so gung-ho radical newNewNEW Uranus will work well in reform backseat mode while these demolishers/rebuilders take center stage.

We will edit.

Slow reworking/reinvention !! brainstorming !! of the structures/foundations of our work/life/purpose means they are being built to last.

Mars is also on the move, into Scorpio on the 25th (more in another post coming up).
Peace

Steampunk Tarot

Steampunk metamorphoses the junk of the past into useful goods for the now/future.
Today’s read revolves around North Node of Destiny conjunct Saturn in Scorpio.

Intent for highest good, most insight, forward motion towards most benevolent outcome.

What to concentrate on re: Past (left) Future (right)
What is the Fulcrum between the two ?
Lastly, the Spirit card (bottom right) is the Crux of the sitch.
::::::::::::::::::::::

Death :: Sun
 Ace of Cups :: Four of Pents

Seems obvious doesn’t it ?
 Yet, sometimes we all need the reminder.  I certainly do…constant heartache going on 10 + years now, in fact, I have quit counting…what’s the use of it ?   True Capricorn rising with Saturn Rx in 3 style, if it isn’t of USE to the mind – fuq it, chuck it already.

Wailing and moaning only makes it worse, trust me – I learned that the HARD WAY.

House Capricorn is getting ravaged & rebuilt – house Scorpio is lending a hand for better or worse via Saturn (conjunct North Node) in mutual reception.  Check the houses these land on and any planets therin – here lies your greatest metamorphosis.  These are areas of constant change – may as well deal – remain positive.

Love is the answer.
Love is the Fulcrum.
Moments of joy can make all the difference.
 That goofy little song Hugh Jackman shared that James McAvoy (X-Men, Dune freak here) shared with him oddly enough (see my Twitter feed), made my day – actually a couple of days.
Silly little thing that unexpectedly cheered me right UP.
 Yesterday I met a guy who loves astro.  He dropped trou, showed me the tatts to prove it.  Cracked me right up, it was cute and again, a silly little thing that made my day.

Death and metamorphosis is painful, truly gut-wrenching at times, but it is absolutely vital that we all remain on the sunny side.
Keep hope and lend a hand to others, be loving and kind, don’t rush to judge others harshly.
That is the Crux.  Cling to it.

Damn I love a gritty western. 
Silence

Saturn.

Jupiter and Saturn are the social planetsthey BRIDGE the gap between the quicker moving personals Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars – and the much slower generational planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

::::::::::::
Have a look at your natal Saturn.

Have a look at your house Scorpio. 
Herein lies your test.
::::::::::::

For everyone this Saturnian / Scorpionic energy revolves around Plutonic desires in opposition (peace talks) with the haves – or the have nots – (whatever the case may be) across the wheel (via another) in Venus-ruled Taurus.

The house your Scorpio lands in will tell the tale of woe and redemption. 
Discipline, lack, restriction, conservation, patience and perseverance over time.
WORK and LOTS of it.
Live Long and Prosper vibe permeates.

Capricornian (Saturn) energy keeps going when the going gets tough.

:::MUST.
::::::::CLIMB.
::::::::::::: ALTITUDE.

Work is the opportunity OUT for everyone.
Houses Virgo and Capricorn hold the golden tickets – daily routine and career on the material earth bound plane.
Push it, work it.
Know your craft, intensify study, crank out effort that equals results.

There is now a mutable (flexible) Mercurial (thinking) VIRGO Sun (and Mercury until 9/9) trine every material manifestation until Sun moves into Libra on 9/22.
Let this be your foundation to build a dream on.

Mortar = differentiating between desires and wants.

What do you NEED ?

Think bare bones.
Hard tack, water, shelter, sleep.
Then move UP from there.

Saturn is in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn.
Plutonic transformation and metamorphosis is MAINLINING Saturnian work
at the mo & this obviously applies in reverse as well.

If you are struggling with desires and how to plunge, plow or proliferate forward…
Metamorphoset the Goal(s).

Go bare bones.
Simplify.
Work your desires rather than let them work YOU.

That’s right . . .

Tsaheylu is a Na’vi word meaning a bond (neural connection).  This bond takes place when two creatures of Pandora connect their queues. On the Na’vi, it looks like hair, but is in fact an extension of the nervous system.
Instances where this bond occurs are those between a Na’vi and their direhorse, their mountain banshee or ikran (which will fly with only one hunter in their whole life), and during mating Na’vi connect their queues to create a strong, emotional, and lifelong bond.

Make the Bond !

Neytiri: Now you choose your ikran. This you must feel inside. If he also chooses you, move quick, like I showed. You will have one chance, Jake.
Jake Sully: How will I know if he chooses me ?
Neytiri: He will try to kill you.
Jake Sully: Outstanding.

Scorpio (Pluto rules) is soul-bonding through struggle.
Struggles of power and control, helplessness and surrender, obsessions, secrets and desires.

Soul bonds are not only sunshine and lilies – they are blood and guts as well.

Scorpio and Pluto signal transmutation through death or near-death, living through the deep nuclear fission of personal psychoanalysis, the little death of sexual orgasm, qi turned inward to grow into powerful supernova wizard magick.  Nova is new in Latin.

Plutonians defiantly RISE UP – they phoenix – miraculously remaining steadfast and loyal to the quest though the very fires of hell scorch them to cinders and ash.

Scorpions have fixed desires.
They will not let go.
Strong Plutonics will forcibly create metamorphosis when none is available, they cannot live without it.  Divine will dictates.

Scorpio / Pluto energies manifest healing through deep core soul-mining.
Moon transiting Saturn and North Node in Scorpio was richly. . .
surprising, and powerfully rewarding as I felt compelled to strengthen a bond.

Memories and emotional moon (growing to full) keenly felt the pull to heal across time. The desire to form a bridge from the past into the future was satisfyingly intense in execution – a rolling thunder of metamorphosis growing to volcanic eruption.

Emotional shifts of perception were off the scale here at Casa Luna.
Symptom of North Node trine Mercury in Leo + water trine with Jupiter intensifying Moon-ruled matters from her home base, Cancer, while in opposition to Pluto.
It is my hope you felt healing in your home as well.


These are tiny items on my desk, along with Yoda (not pictured).
Ganesha, time turner (one buck goodwill), crystal ball.
My mind is always turned towards metamorphosis, changes and divination regarding both in order to retain balance. My meditation zen zones are divination, music, cleaning and mowing the lawn. Yah, I know, mowing…weird – symptom of Sag Mars (walking blades) quintile Virgo (neat freak) Uranus from the backdoor.

Scorpio territory can be rife with land mines – with Saturn in house in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn – we have more options because we get the warnings, can feel the earth shifts rumbling in from the distance.

Better the devil you know
This is why I divinate…to locate the land mines.
I also divinate in order to find clarity and for confirmation of private matters I do not wish to speak of.  Example:  3 years ago I drew almost all wands in a ten card reading prior to what was very nearly a panic attack.
I saw it coming and managed the mischief.

During this aspect of mutual reception + water trine we can FEEL our way out of precarious situations.
Even if you do not divinate daily, you will be more in tune, going with the flow, you will be IN THE ZONE under this sky.

Tap your power, find your sweet spot, USE it to your advantage.

Breath of the Night Mystical Oracle

These two cards landed on the first house position in this morning’s Grand Tableau.
For those of you who do not study Lenormand, the first house is:

The Rider: messages, news
Time: Time means something very special to me, and to that I hold.
Tree: As above/So below (roots/branches), health, a loOong time, karma.

This one’s for you.
You know who you are.

Feeling the Cardinal Cross, at odds all morning…really forcing myself to come out of the shadows.  There are also water trine energies…so feeling meditative, contemplative with a chance of emotional undertow.  I’ve had my nose in a book, studying all morning.  Lots of info and patterns, circles coming back around…so much so I need more time to process.

Many of my generation (late 60’s) have their natal Scorpio Neptune being popped by the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse.  If you want an idea, here’s the approximate stats: 1965 Neptune 18′, 1966 Neptune 20′, 1967 Neptune 22′, 1968 Neptune 24′, 1969 Neptune 26′.

Total Solar Eclipse
November 13
21 56′ Scorpio

Pisces, and its ruler, Neptune are the psychic sponges of the zodiac.  If they are strong in your chart, you are going to be sensitive to vibrations / disturbances in the force, both positive and negative.

Those of you born with Neptune at 21+ degrees will have the solar eclipse energy applying (stronger) on your Neptune.  More about that in next post.

Moon-eyed feelings are in Cancer, ten days before an eclipse.  Water, home, mother and the public.  Intuition is sky high, feelings are tidal in this cross of action driven Cardinal signs.   Moon opposes Pluto the transformer, trines Sun and Saturn in Scorpio as rebuilding takes place on the Atlantic coast and islands hit by our mothers waves and fury.

It varies storm to storm, but on average, the diameter of hurricane-force winds is 100 miles, while the average diameter of tropical storm (gale) force winds is 300 to 400 miles.  Sandy was the largest hurricane (by gale diameter) ever observed in the Atlantic basin: 945 mi / 1,520km.

I did mention Saturn is in Scorpio – Saturn is slow, methodical and tests the patience.  Neither Saturn nor Pluto is fast acting; they are however extremely thorough in turning out the insides, shining a light, peering into the heart and soul of a situation and making it infinitely improved.

Being packed with Scorpio and Pluto energy (NNode is in Scorp too) is at this point a mixed blessing – a contradiction I am intimately familiar with – my 8th house Pluto is conjunct my Sun and trine my Moon.

Having and in fact, being an intense experience is all I have ever known.  I am generally given a wide berth. . .which ironically is a nautical term – compass to the fact I have a big Neptuner in 11.

Pluto means POWER and powerless.
Pluto forces surrender to the regenerative process.

Scorpio Saturn sextiles Pluto in Capricorn : mutual reception : slow, steady painful metamorphosis.

Straight – no chaser.
Emotional rebirth on the physical plane. 

Pluto and Saturn are tough and will force us to become tough as well.
This applies Micro (personally) and Macro (globally).

While Saturn is predictable: work, testing and perfecting – Pluto changes it up: life, tantric energy, death, rebirth and intensive research through experiencing all 3.

Yes, you have experienced death – you are eternally in a state of cellular, spiritual and emotional flux – this is Plutonic force at work within us.

Scorpio Saturn trines Chiron Rx in Pisces – this test will ultimately heal.  Chiron was the wounded centaur who studied the healing herbal arts, taught others and and in typical centaur fashion – he was optimistic, he had faith, and he was enthusiastic to learn.   Saturn in Scorpio = Time to dig in.
