Planet Tracker: Venus in Scorpio, Oct 23 to Nov 16

Venus in Scorpio

Oct 23, 2014 to Nov 16, 2014

Traditional astrology considers Scorpio to be a tough neighborhood for loving Venus, the planet of pretty and sweet. Scorpio, however, is not concerned with superficial good looks. It digs below the surface to touch fundamental human issues of power, fear, sex and desire. At this time, the evaluative properties of Venus may be directed beyond social niceties to reach into our deepest recesses and provoke needed change.

Venus and Scorpio share an interest in values. Part of the process, then, is to be more aware of what you get for what you give. Scorpio keeps score in relationships, albeit unconsciously for the most part. Jealousy is a possibility, but so is a level of emotional awareness that casts off illusion and gets to the heart of the matter. It may be necessary to exchange outer harmony for inner truth for relationships to grow and flourish.

Passions are likely to be more intense now. Likes and dislikes move beyond the containment of politeness and “correct” behavior. We are able to connect with gut feelings about what we need and don’t need. One of the challenges is to trust our instincts, even if they push us to rock the relationship boat.

This may also be a good time to resurrect old projects, artistic interests and partnerships. If there is essential value to be found, Venus in Scorpio can help you get it. Outmoded desires can be shed or transformed so that pleasure, love and appreciation rise from the ashes.

Tenacity and focus are Venus in Scorpio qualities found in the charts of athletes Tiger Woods and Chris Evert. Rockers Keith Richards, Jim Morrison, Patti Smith and Neil Young were also born with this combination. The sexier side of Venus in Scorpio is apparent in Bette Midler’s humor, several of Demi Moore’s films and the porn of Larry Flynt and Bob Guccione.

Steven Speilberg, Martin Scorcese and Oliver Stone express their Venus in Scorpio passion by directing movies, while Leonardo DiCaprio, Winona Ryder, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sigourney Weaver, Richard Dreyfuss and Goldie Hawn express theirs by acting in them.

Political Venus in Scorps include Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ed Koch, Jesse Jackson and Gore Vidal. The sign Scorpio’s association with Pluto, the planet of extraordinary wealth, makes it no surprise to find Venus in Scorpio in the birth chart of Bill Gates.

Happy Birthday, Scorpio!

Happy Birthday, Scorpio!

It’s finally your time, the month when your energy is at its most intense, when your focus is the most exact and your
passions likely the most fulfilled.

Natural Sign of the Eighth House — House of Sex, Death and Regeneration — Scorpio usually gets pegged with a
reputation that’s both the sexiest and the scariest of the twelve Sun Signs. During the Sun’s transit through this Water
Sign, emotions will run extra high and, with the increase of emotions, suspicions may also be raised. Scorpio is a
perceptive Sign, and when it gets a hunch, it investigates it, leaving no secret undiscovered. Watch out: Consequences
will be more serious than usual, and messages more honest and direct. You Scorpios (and the rest of us during the
Sun’s transit of the Sign, actually) will be magnetically attractive to others, as you exude a forceful sexuality and
an emotionally-tinged confidence in your own appeal.

Because Scorpio is so fiercely passionate, there is a tendency for natives of the Sign to brood and exhibit  bursts
of jealousy when the road to love becomes bumpy. The flip side to this characteristic is that Scorpio cares deeply
and intensely about those it loves, and will go to great lengths to protect and defend these lucky individuals. Although
romantic relationships can be complicated because of Scorpio’s unpredictable moods, at least there’s never a dull moment!

Although Scorpio’s intense feelings define the Sign, we shouldn’t forget that Scorpio is also kind, loyal and generous. Scorpio’s innate understanding of emotions, ability to uncover the truth and driving passion are an inspiration to us all.

The Sun in Scorpio: Fall Cleaning

The Sun in Scorpio:
Fall Cleaning

Shed your soul while the Sun and Saturn move through Scorpio

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of sun, scorpio, blogs, astrology

The Sun enters Scorpio on October 23, initiating a descent into the depths of our emotions and the mystery of our soul’s purpose. While some do this with fear, this sign is not designed to cause pain, but to eliminate outmoded habits, reconnect with the seeds of life and become more fully alive.

It may seem odd to connect this inward turn of awareness with the power of life. The bare trees and shorter days ahead appear barren and lifeless. Yet this is a turning point when we decide whether to continue on our current paths or to give up the ghost. The investments we’ve made in relationships, careers and in our ambitions and dreams will encounter contracting forces that require even more commitment to sustain them or to elect to let them go. Will we blindly forge ahead as before, or will we challenge ourselves more deeply to recognize the goals that are leading us nowhere? That is the question.

These important decisions begin on an unconscious level because Scorpio is an emotional Water sign whose seeds are sown beyond the rational confines of the mind. It is by our instincts that the stage is set for what we choose to keep throughout the winter months to come. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth, of resurrection and regeneration. Its key is learning where to let go in order to grow. Releasing unfulfilled hopes and giving up on people and plans isn’t easy. Our egos are attached to the promises we’ve made to ourselves and others, and most of the time the ego wins.

Saturn in Scorpio raises the stakes

This year’s solar journey through Scorpio is the last time it will coincide with Saturn, the planet of karma and crystallization, also in Scorpio; he moves on to Sagittarius in December 2014. With Saturn in Scorpio, the stakes in the games we play are higher as the cost of inaction increases, but the rewards of clarity and consciousness are growing just as much. There will be choices made personally and collectively that will set in motion patterns that can shape our worlds for decades.

We live in acquisitive times, when having more and doing more are associated with success. Yet the never-ending hunger to accumulate objects and experiences can never be fully satisfied. We can shoot hundreds of photographs on digital cameras without taking the time to deeply examine any one of them. We have thousands of television stations, millions of books and an ever increasing number of websites to fill our heads with images and ideas. We collect information like some people collect clothes, filling the closets of our minds, yet feeling like we have nothing to wear.

Cleaning house

The Sun in Scorpio is a time to empty our drawers of fading dreams, to turn our pockets inside out and our purses upside down to look at what we’re carrying that we no longer need. This is not a form of sacrifice; it is a gift to ourselves. When we put down the loads of desire, doubt and unrewarding tasks we carry, we open ourselves to receive the wisdom, joy and pleasure of what we really need. These acts of personal liberation become models for other individuals and for institutions that appear to shape society. Corporations, governments and churches stuck with corruption, waste and destructive habits need us to show them the way and help all of us to to become free, happy and put on the path to achieve our highest potential.

Planet Tracker: Sun in Scorpio, Oct 22 to Nov 22

Planet Tracker

Sun in Scorpio

Oct 22, 2014 to Nov 22, 2014

Scorpio arrives with the falling leaves in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the middle sign of autumn, marking the deepening shift from light and warmth to a darker and cooler time of year. Some are saddened by these changes, reminded of their mortality and the ephemeral nature of life. Others, though, revel in exploring the inner side of human nature and understand that death is always followed by rebirth.

Scorpion or Eagle

The symbol of the Scorpion is not a particularly attractive one. It is a poorly understood animal, best known for its capacity to sting and kill other creatures, and sometimes itself. For astrologers, though, Scorpio represents the possibility of a new world created out of the ashes of the old.

Scorpio is a fixed sign, meaning that it occupies the middle of a season. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo and Aquarius are the others) do not change easily. Pressures can build, issues may need to be examined deeply before letting go. Scorpio is a water or feeling sign. (Cancer and Pisces are the other water signs.) Fixed water is about emotions that are profound and tend to dominate the personality. Scorpios, of course, can be reasonable, but the bottom line is that feeling is likely to be more important than thinking.

Scorpio and Sex

Many people relate Scorpio to sex. It follows the relationship sign of Libra. In a sense, we meet in Libra and consummate the partnership in Scorpio. However, this sign is really about extremes in sexuality. Scorpio can be celibate or profligate depending on the time, the place and the individual. Some Scorpios are crude about sex like Larry Flynt or Roseanne, and others can delicately reveal eroticism through art like Georgia O’Keefe.

Scorpio deals with most of the “forbidden” subjects such as death, sex and power. Some of the difficulty we have with this sign is due to a failure to deal with these essential human issues in mature and open ways. Psychological sophistication, a Scorpio trait, is one way to meet these issues in a healthy manner.

All or Nothing at All

A primary role of Scorpio is to push past the surface and get to the heart of the matter. Scorpio is about essence, not fluff. Sometimes this means that Scorpios seem distant when you want to be light and playful. They are not uncaring. In fact, they sometimes feel too much. Behind those intense eyes is a very sensitive person, one who knows what it’s like to be hurt.

Scorpio often seems cautious until passion takes over, and then all limits are ignored. This is not a sign of half measures. It’s usually all or nothing. Extremes of loyalty, commitment and intensity are balanced against cool detachment and apparent disinterest. If you want to play with these folks, bring all you’ve got. They won’t settle for any less.

Scorpios are often intense, passionate or powerful people like Hillary Rodham Clinton, Demi Moore, Meg Ryan, Dennis Miller, Bill Gates, Julia Roberts, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs or Ted Turner.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Thursday, October 23

The solar shift each year from Libra to Scorpio occurs usually on this day or October 22. It is a real power-house and intensity-enhancer as Scorpio — the eighth sign of the zodiac — has a reputation for willfulness, tenacity, and the capacity to endure various types of ordeals. The Sun enters Scorpio at 4:58AM and this important solar dynamic is followed by Venus parallel Neptune (8:59AM), a void lunar cycle in Libra happening from 10:23AM to 2:11PM, the Moon parallel Neptune (1:03PM) and Venus (1:42PM), Venus entering Scorpio (1:53PM) until November 16, plus the Moon joining forces with Venus (2:13PM), the New Moon (2:58PM and activating 1 degree of Scorpio, along with a Partial Solar Eclipse 12 minutes earlier at 2:46PM) as well as the monthly Moon-Pallas union (5:56PM). When so many major cycles and alignments occur in a short time-period, you need to be as logical and wise as possible to avoid taking unnecessary detours and missing the opportunity to make significant gains across the board. Except for the nearly 4-hour void-of-course lunar condition, the other sky configurations carry various types of creativity, artistry, and soulful insight. With three more quintile, 72-degree heavenly links occurring tomorrow — to add to the four that energized earthly conditions yesterday — and with an imagination-boosting trine from the Moon to Neptune tonight (11:30PM), the universe is providing you with a vast portfolio of aromatic celestial seasonings. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

The Wiccan Books of Days for Thursday, October 23 – Scorpio, the Scorpion


Witchy Comments

Scorpio, the Scorpion

 

The zodiacal month of Scorpio begins today (ends November 21). Scorpio was originally ruled solely by Mars, the planet name for the Roman God of War, partly because a scorpion’s sting is comparable to a spear. Following the discovery of the planet Pluto’s recent relegation to dwarf-planet status may change that—with Pluto’s influence being said to add intensity and secrecy. Other characteristics of Scorpio include a feminine polarity’ reticence; a fixed quadruplicity’s stubbornness, and a watery element’s profound emotions.

Tasty Tarragon

 

You may find that tarragon a Scorpionic herb, helps you to go with the psychic flow, if you are intending do some scrying or telephathic work this evening. The fresh leaves of this relaxant and mild sedative also enhance many culinary dishes.
