The Power of Scorpio

The Power of Scorpio

We probably all know by now that we are in Mercury Retrograde. In fact I wrote about it in Mercury Retrograde and First World Problems. In Scorpio this is powerful and deep and the Scorpio energy is about to get stronger so I thought it was time to write about the power of Scorpio generally and how to manage and benefit from this energy.   Later today (22nd October 2013) the sun will move into Scorpio shining it’s light on this powerful energy. We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships.

An Astrological Pivot Week

This week, and most particularly today and tomorrow, is a pivot week according to astrologer Anne Ortelee. I could go into all the astrology but as my aim is to write for you, not to give an astrology lesson or write for other astrologers I will only mention the highlights and if you want to know all the astrology look at Anne’s post. Instead I will only talk about how this week should affect you and how you will feel. Firstly, what does a pivot week mean? It means a profound or paradigm shift. This week is a shift from thinking to feeling. A ‘getting out of our head time’ and really moving into a more feminine time. A very watery time of flow and emotion. The Sun and Jupiter join together today to begin a whole new year of creativity and then they both move into the sign of Cancer. The Sun tomorrow and Jupiter late on the 25th – I am always referencing mountain time. Cancer is THE sign of feeling, of nurturing, of the mother and from the 25th we will have four planets in this sign until Venus moves into Leo on the 28th. The Sun, Mercury (which is going retrograde on the 26th) will be there for quite some time. Too much astrology? I apologize. This just means a real period of moving into our feelings. I am seeing it already. There was a thread on a friends facebook profile yesterday talking about how their emotions are all over the place. There were many comments agreeing. It’s also very apt that I am starting...
