altitude adjustments

Trees by Toni Demuro

Gibbous Moon in late Aquarius moving to conjunct Neptune, Chiron in Pisces.
(see Moon times below)

Growing pains were likely on the agenda as Aquarius Moon is passing a square to Mercury and soon will square North Node of Destiny, both in Scorpio.  Squares bring the most inner tension, but deliver the most growth as well. 

I physically felt this Moon square, as Mercury was also preheating a planet in my natal on the upcoming eclipse degree (22 Scorp) as Venus sextiled it – 2 day splitting headache rendering me essentially useless at basically everything.  I was incapable of making a decision -even as slight as what’s for dinner- when I am usually incredibly decisive.

Moon into Pisces
Wednesday 24 6:00am CST,USA

Day / night dreaming your path to health is primo as Moon enters Pisces and trines Sun and Saturn in early Scorpio.  Emotional and spiritual healing is especially favored as Pisces and Scorpio are water houses, and Moon is water as well.  Saturn in trine makes Mooneptunian dreams manifest – be mindful of your thoughts, feelings.  Subconscious and conscious are energetically in synch and emotional insights and power surges are likely.

Full Moon in Taurus 6 degrees 
Monday 29 2:49pm CST, USA

Taurus, you have mail !  This Full Moon puts Sun in Scorpio in peace talks with Toro Moon from across the wheel.  Desires vs. what you already have.  Altitude adjustments are off the scale, digging deep to cultivate peace of mind via purging the old and outworn.  Think love, money, power and restraint.  Venus and Pluto are rulers of these houses.  Transform.

Aquarius and Leo will be feeling squares from the Scorpio party – settle in folks, you are in transformation station.  Personal progress and metamorphosis is underway !

Toro house gets Scorpio types handing over test after test – to revise and rework via compromise, mirroring behavior we disapprove of that we need to change in some way in ourselves.


Desires on parade

Pluto is SEX.
Pluto is FORCE – the drag you kicking and screaming like it or not GAME CHANGER.
Pluto is DEFIANCE.
Pluto is INTENSE.
Pluto rules anything small or miraculous.
Pluto may be small but take it from someone who has it hooked up with BOTH luminaries – Pluto’s packin’ one hell of a punch.  Underestimate it at your own peril.

Pluto is the light burning from behind the eyes – the DIVINE WILL.  Pluto is the higher octave of Mars the aggressor.

Mars is the PERSONAL WILL – the physical energy behind the natal chart – it is your blade, your weapon, the traditional ruler of Scorpio.

Mars and Pluto are kicking into gear this week – POWER IS FLUCTUATING.

Pluto is a generational planet, moves slowly and will stay in one sign from anywhere from 11-30 years (average 21 years).

Mars is a personal planet moves through a sign on average every 2 months.
Mars has been in Virgo since November 10, 2011.
Mars kicks the door in on Libra on July 3.
Eight months of aggressive Virgo nit-picking self – flagellation will be ovah.
Hallelujah AMEN !

Not only will Capricorn and Virgos feel this shift – Scorpio (Pluto rules) and Aries (Mars rules) will likely feel it as well.

In the natal, also find any planets in Scorpio or the 8th house to see where Pluto kicks that planetary energy into high gear.  ie: A Moon in Scorpio or Moon in the 8th is akin to Moon conjunct Pluto.
  I am a late 67 Virgo stellium.  Mercury at MC, with 9th house Sun conjunct Uranus and (8th house) Pluto, Pluto trines my Taurus Moon in 4th.

Sun is the center, the ego, the spirit, it rules the heart and the creative spirit.
Pluto conjunct Sun in my experience is continual life-long ego hits – one right after another.  Sun conjunct Pluto is a regeneration of who you are at the visible level – what others see.  A regeneration of how the self expresses the creative spirit, it is WILL POWER.

Contact with Moon is just as powerful – it is POWERFUL INSTINCTUAL DESIRES and a need to plumb the emotional depths.  It is the subconscious brought to the surface to breathe deeply of fresh air and it ain’t always pretty.  We humans are a twisted little bunch ~ beautiful, but twisted.  Contacts to Moon means fluctuation of personality, family and home, restructuring of security, powerful insight into the psyche – it is emotionally wrangling – the discomfort zone 24/7.

Where Pluto lands you will always find CHANGE and MAJOR GROWTH.

Pluto in any aspect reveals a struggle, a force of atomic change that will completely destabilize and restructure that planetary energy.  Pluto rules atomics – positive or negatively charged atoms are called ions.  When you feel better after a thunderstorm, or after you smudge with sage, that is Pluto at work changing energies on a sub-atomic level.  Expect the same energies at work when dealing with Pluto and Scorpio in the natal chart.

Plutonic energies are shifting in the house of Capricorn.
Martian energies are shifting in the house of Virgo.

Find your Capricorn and Virgo houses (also Scorpio and Aries houses) and apply the below to your chart to see where you will be feeling the shift in energies.

Here’s a very general guideline:
1/7 = self/others
2/8 = mine/ours
3/9 = learning/teaching
4/10 = home/career
5/11 = personal will/ will for others
6/12 = personal health & work/ universal health & service

If you need a quick fix and release from overwhelming desires – disengage. (click)
Pluto stations retrograde on Tuesday (USA) in trine to Mars Rx in Virgo and trine Jupiter in Taurus.  That’s gonna tap the primal instincts and crank up the volume on the libido.  Especially true since Moon is trine Sun and Uranus from free – wheeling Sagittarius.

Emotions and instincts are expansive and we are communicating them. Mercury is coming up to dance with Uranus in Aries again, so surprises are on the way from men in your life.  Communications with women or lovers are favored with a quintile between Mercury and Venus.
