I had a little Saturn mishap yesterday so I’m later writing this almost two days later than I wanted to. You know how I’ve said over and over that Saturn is the Good Dad Planet? He nags you about your health insurance and retirement plans and changing your oil and checking your tires–lots of car related things mostly? He wants to make sure that the structure of your life is intact so you can avoid all of the pitfalls day-to-day life throws at you thus creating madness where none needs to be. You know, ignore your oil changes and eventually one day your car breaks down and then you can’t get to work and the repair is over a grand and you have to borrow it (maybe from your dad) and missing work costs even more money and puts you in dutch with your boss and suddenly a $20 maintenance cost is now $1400 and some change, and a whole lotta frustration.
In the same thought as the shoemaker’s children always go barefoot, I ignored Saturn’s warnings and left the tooth that was at first infected, then broken, to deal with its own self–imaging I guess if I waited it would heal itself or someting (this works with many things actually) ( and by the way, this was a perfectly fine if aged filled tooth that a dentist broke when drilling it down for a bridge that then became infected before I’d paid for the bridge, now the bridge is no good and my credit is worse, and no they wouldn’t deal with their mistake and no I didn’t go to court and the beat goes on……Archeologists will dig me up and go woman with no insurance..she must have lived in those cold dark Republican days before the next enlightenment…… broke single mother, no doubt. It’s sad really. Her brain looks a bit substantial.. oh wait…. look at the erosion……migraines… .)
Anyway. That very same broken tooth lost and yet another piece of itself last night and it set my whole face to ill–sore throat, sore cheek, headache, swellling… what a mess. So I did a work around with my apointments allowing for as little speech as possible, slept late, used a bunch of CBD oil, and now I’m finally able to bring you all of this good news with the warning: as Anne Ortalee would say, Do your Saturn!
The good news–the very best good news–is that our beloved Jupiter, the giant bouncing ball of all good tidings, of abundance and plentitude and opportunities and luck, has moved into his home sign of Sagittarius.
Jupiter spends a year in each sign (13 months when he’s in his home) and it’s a major coo for that area of your chart. However, this is extra special because yes, his home.
Jupiter is in Sagittarius. All of his blessings and abundance and amplification will be whereever Sagittarius rules for you… and it will overflow into other areas because Jupiter pretty much coined the concept of go big or go home except it’s more like go big when you go home. And after 11 long years, he’s home. #talkingheads #home #thismustbetheplace
Until December 2019, Jupiter will be nesting…. doing beautiful things, abundant things. This is your time to take some risks, make some progress, create some magic.
As an example….. for me, and all Scorpio Rising folks, Jupiter is in our second house of money and material assets. (I know I know I ‘m doing the happy dance… there are two houses that I would wish for Jupiter’s visit in and this, my friend is one of them.)
This means that I and all of my Scorpio Rising friends have thirteen months to use this energy and expand, to embrace opportunities for luck to surface seemingly out of the blue. If I do… if I follow the planetary energy and keep my ears and eyes engaged, if I gather my courage and walk through those open doors or windows, it just could be that something substantial and sustaining for a long time to come will result. Something to build upon in a security type way, in a real money type way, in a life changing way.
As I’ve just started a new business, how stoked am I? Let’s get this party started. #pink #letsgetthispartystarted
Think about what you learned from the Goddess of Beauty during Venus retrograde, what is your heart’s desire? Pick up Sag’s bow and arrow and strike a pose. Set your arrow. Pull it back. Think to yourself: my aim is true. Release.
I listened to Uranus who was in my house of daily routine, work, and health for eight years and took his advice finally when I saw my work life blow up in front of my face just as my health did….. (#burningdownthehouse #talkingheads )(If we pay attention and take planetary advice early, we can avoid these little, ah, events….)
I looked into my chart, listened to my heart (She’s gonna listen to her heart. It’s gonna tell her what to do.–Tom Petty) and stepped into the abyss of the great wide open. Tom Petty #tompetty #listentoherheart
Now, as the universe tends to do, a support raft has been sent to me by way of Jupiter to make sure that I am successful in this enterprise–as long, of course, as I do my part. This means being ethical, honest, have integrity, work from the heart and out of love only, never make decisions out of greed, and trust my higher angels.
This is how it all works. Faith. Trust. The golden rule.
Following your path because you know, whatever you believe about how you got here? You wouldn’t be here without a mission, without work to do. When you find it, you know it. When you do the work that makes your heart flutter and your blood pulse, when your work is play and your play is work, it’s amazing how lifted up you can be when you put action behind your intentions.
The universe wants to give. Uranus wants you to find your way. Jupiter is bonkers to make you abundant (just make sure it’s not on you know, cake with buttercream icing…)
That’s what working with the planets is all about. Making sure you have all the cake with buttercream icing you can eat, teeth and weight be damned.
It’s using the energy that is available and present and timing your life to coincide.
What else is going on around the cosmos?
Something that might give you a bit of a glimpse as to Jupiter in Sag energy is to look back to about 2005-6 and see what was going on for you then that was positive (or if you ignored the energy and misused it, potentially negative) and you might have an idea of what this energy can do. For me, I graduated at long last with my BA in English and Humanities and Behavorial Science, got certified, and began teaching turning my single mother life around from in school working three jobs raising to daughters to professional teacher raising two daughters with enough income to breathe a bit. I was also able to finance a new car just as my 15 year old Ford rolled onto the lot parking lot, the bumper held on with a bungie cord (another story for another day, or lifetime…)
This is what Jupiter can do.
Uranus is back in Aries until March 2019, finishing up the transit from 2010. This is your last few months to use this choatic and powerful planet’s gifts for your betterment. Then he will make the move into Taurus and hang out for over seven years so whatever work you need to do these? Might want to get after it. Uranus is the Tarantino Gun Slinger of the Zodiac.
Venus is going direct on November 16–at long last, love. All of that deep thinking and soul searching you’ve been doing to determine what it is that your heart most deepest desires? It’s time to go after it. You will feel a lift of tension in romantic relationships. Venus will again be a morning star in the heavens and wants to shine her light of beauty and guidance for you to follow. U2 I Will Follow #u2 #iwillfollow
Our old friend Mercury? Yes, yes, you got it. He’s spinning backward into retrograde once again this year, on the same day that Venus is stationing direct, November 16. We know the drill by now, I hope, and if you don’t? Please pay close attention…..
Mercury is the winged messenger of the gods and as such, rules communication, logic, thinking, intellect, awareness, wit…. as well as short trips (your daily commute, errands, weekend get-a-ways), siblings, and transportation (all methods including cars and car repairs)….writing books, the internet and all online communication, and social media.
Thus, expect delays, expect woo woo weird snafus in communication, double check everything sent via the internet or even snail mail, do your Saturn and maintain your car, be kind or avoid your siblings, expect to be a bit fuzzy headed forgetting things, writer’s block is pretty darn common, be extra careful with short travels and avoid and combine them as much as possible, and don’t sign contracts…… yes, they too fall under Mercury’s domain…. and lastly, don’t make electronic or big purchases… don’t purchase anything extra or not necessary even if, yes, it means delaying your holiday shopping.
The Karmic Nodes of the Moon, Nodes of Fate are changing signs. After being for some time in Aquarius and Leo, then are moving into Cancer and Capricorn on November 15.
I do so love the Nodes of Fate. A little gain, a little loss. Temperance the Angel mixing just right awaiting the sun and moon and earth to align just perfectly to cause the life stopping and life zapping eclipse in the sky. Some elemental cosmic alchemy.
The nodes are not planets, they are sensitive points always moving backward, always retrograde symbolizing the karmic dance of reincarnation. They are where the moon’s orbit crosses the ecliptic–which is the path the Sun makes around the Earth where divine and the earthbound meet.
In Chinese astrology, the nodes were thought of as a Celestial Dragon. I’m going to follow soon with a posting specifically about the Nodes of Fate, but for now know this:
The North Node is the head of the dragon… it is what we take in. The South Node is the tail of the dragon. What we no longer need and what is taking up space is thrashed out of our grips by his mighty tail. This is what eclipses are all about. We have another eclipse season coming in January 2019.
With the nodes in these signs, what we can expect both personally and collectively is sort of a return to sanity. A return to home.
We will be letting go of qualities of the mountain goat, Capricorn, the work-a-holic, and embracing the qualities of the crab–nurturing, love of home and people, kindness.
While Beto didn’t win the Texas Senate (voting machine fraud voting machine fraud Beto 2020) what we do know is that the Beto effect brought two more democrats into the House, that the suburbs are turning blue at a lightening fast pace, and that a return to the sea with the mother of the zodiac?
I think it’s time, my loves. I think it’s time.
