It is the Dark of the Moon, at the end of a wild Scorpio cycle.
DARK MOON CONJUNCT MARS [3:36 am pdt/ 4:36 am mdt/ 5:36 am cdt/ 6:36 am edt] bringing us to active closure and action on projects that have been unfolding in our shadows, our secret chambers, and our deep soul longings.
MOON OPPOSITE URANUS [3:51 am pdt/ 4:51 am mdt/ 5:51 am cdt/ 6:51 edt] reveals a vital revolutionary spirit of the ancient human heart awakening. Uranus in Taurus is challenging us to change rapidly as changes are happening in areas that used to be stable (Taurian areas)–are now in radical shifting.
VENUS CONJUNCT JUPITER [5:33 am pdt/ 6:33 am mdt/ 7:33 am cdt/ 8:33 am edt] is a communication between our creative part and our expanding part of self. We are on earth to expand our consciousness, perhaps even to expand the capacity of our own DNA. May we open to the expanded support that is here for each of us, and see it, to receive it!
MARS OPPOSITE URANUS [8:51 am pdt/ 9:51 am mdt/ 10:51 am cdt/ 11:51 am edt] is an awakened rising into action, is a meeting of the challenges before us, is a genius emerging with bags of wishes come true, it is the ability to act and be in ways that unfurl the future before us.
It is dark of the moon in the secret dark time of year before the holy day celebration time of humanity. There is one more lunar cycle before the NEW MOON ECLIPSE on Christmas, December 25th. The New Moon is on Tuesday, November 26th in Sagittarius.
SUN is now in Sagittarius, however MOON CONJUNCT MERCURY is in Scorpio at [7:50 pm pdt/ 8:50 pm mdt/ 9:50 pm cdt/ 10:50 pm edt]. We’ve entered the season and spirit of giving! And we are still working out all our deep resource issues. Unwinding the Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio.
Mercury Retrograded through the power sign in the final of three water signs, Scorpio and has just recently gone direct. Mercury is currently at 12 degrees scorpio, and moving across the reweaving, revisiting, degrees of Scorpio through 27 degrees where Mercury first went Retrograde–this will end the whole cycle. This final unfurling phase is the revelation and manifestation time in the whole nine week retrograde weaving with spirit experience. This past year the three mercury Retrogrades were in Water signs, deepening our relationship with soul.
Mercury Retrograde This year and Next:
This has been a soul touching, soul expanding year, as Mercury has spun circles in our deep inner space of power, resource and our ability to die and be reborn by our creator, we go through this cycle, just like the seasons do. We have our own seasons. Each one of us.
We’ve been spinning self-learning-spirals around mothering, nourishment, collective spirituality, and true power–the truth, and the true sources of power and resource–during our year of mercury retrogrades. Next year, Mercury will be retrograding through the same mythic territory, again, with Retrograde cycles: Pisces in Feb/March, Mercury will be retrograde in Cancer in June/July, and Merc retrograde in Scorpio again next year in Oct/Nov.
Having experienced the syncronistic, potentially “off-map-territory,” this last year, we can be more ready for next year’s set of watery soulful retrogrades. They will deeply explore ourselves, in spirituality, with evolving our consciousness in the areas of empathy, emotional management and interpretation (merc retro in Pisces then Cancer); how we nourish ourselves and (merc retro in Scorpio): deep sources of power, how to resource what we need in the world.
May the journey be fulfilling all along the way!
