Just wondering if you were aware that April Elliot Kent offers a free "Working With The Moon" astro-newsletter once a month for eclipses. Check the sidebar over here.
Mine for the month says:
In traditional astrology, the 12th house was called the house of Troubles. Modern
astrologers think of it as the house of spirituality, dreams, illness, and hidden
forces that are undermining you. You are apt to absorb a good deal of other
people’s stress during the month when the New Moon falls in this house of your chart, so be sure to take care of yourself by getting plenty of rest. Meditation can also be a useful tool incoping with this month’s challenges. Often, you find that unresolved stress from the previous eleven months now comes to a head and asks to be dealt with. Resolving to do this consciously can help you avoid a tendency to poor health during this cycle. Set intentions related to solving problems and releasing the past.
And I'm probably going to be doing jury duty on a hardcore case starting that day. Still hasn't been determined quite yet, but the odds are good and jury duty loves me, so. Plus it's a few degrees off from my ascendant/sun opposition, so....should be a lulu.
I anticipate this week symbolizing a major turning-point in your life, Scorpio, thanks to Venus arriving just in time to conjoin Thursday's (Oct 23) solar eclipse in your sign… though, if we're being truly precise, it's actually the culmination of many months of cutting dead weight, extricating yourself from energy-sucking relationships or jobs or living-situations, and bravely facing the truth of who you really are (and also, as a result, who you aren't). If you've done that personal reorienting work while Saturn's been breathing down your neck, you're incredibly well-positioned to begin a radical reaping of now-matured benefits you've struggled hard to claim. This next chapter ought to feel like you're starting it off at the top of your game, not by chance but through longtime persistence: Use this as a jumping-off point for finding greater self-gratification from what you've thus far built, counterbalancing the work with some reaffirming pleasure. If, however, this isn't how you're presently feeling, it could be the result of your having recently lost focus or stamina—or, in the worst instances, of your deliberately avoiding what you've known you must do, therefore prolonging and/or intensifying your woe. Even still, a Venus-kissed solar eclipse remains an exceptional next-chapter moment… only, in your case, it ought to be the beginning of a critical last-ditch attempt to rescue yourself from the willful self-destruction, by any means necessary.
Yeah, that doesn't quite sound like me. My last-ditch efforting isn't quite going so well?
is the most important thing in the whole world---
until you run smack into a meaningful relationship.
North node in Libra-South node in Aries.
And don't say never, because....
that's exactly when the Universe
wets Its pants
I'd agree with that except that it has been ten years and I have been saying never for oh...ten years. I have dared the universe and the universe has said, "Nope." Though I did get a damn tease moment yesterday when I spotted a fellow that looked like a near-dead ringer for my former celebrity crush...except he wasn't interested, and too young, and quickly left my vicinity forever after a few hours. The universe is giving me the finger this week, I suspect.
