all times are in PDT. and for those of you new to my column, i write in lower case for a reason as i find it symbolic and resonant with how i view the world. i capitalize certain words in ways to illuminate their power. otherwise, all is equal to me and i write in lowercase :)
monday october 14th-
at 12:38am the sun in libra squares pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. on the 2nd mercury squared pluto and now the sun does so as well- bringing up all manner of stuff from the shadow and Unconscious realms in relationships, work situations and more. the sun in libra wants peace and harmony but pluto wants to expose what is toxic, stagnant, stuck behind the surface. our willingness to not just keep the peace but to dive deep is key right now. steer clear of power/control dynamics and instead work to stand in your power and Truth!
tuesday october 15th-
at 3:44pm mercury in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of mysticism, intuition and compassion. mercury/neptune is lovely for spirituality, mysticism, dreams and imagination. with both bodies in water signs letting the emotions flow and focusing on communicating from the Higher Heart is supported right now.
wednesday october 16th-
mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries at 8:43pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. communications and thinking can get deep but also intense with old wounds and pain arising. mercury in scorpio wants to plumb the depths and get to the Truth but can we really handle the Truth- about ourselves or about others? with both bodies ruled by mars- we want to be aware of our anger and will and make sure it’s channeled in healthy ways. not giving away our power but also not lording it over others. getting to the bottom of things can set us free if we are willing to go deep.
jupiter in sagittarius semisextiles pluto in capricorn 10:45pm, creating a minor positive aspect between the planet of expansion and positivity and the planet of transformation and intensity. since sunday night jupiter has been triggering the pluto/eris square- some of the BIGGEST astrology of 2020 (for more info on a webinar upcoming on the astrology of 2020 click here- XXX). pluto/eris demands we expose what is shadowy and old paradigm, destroy what is toxic and do the work to rebirth ourselves- personally and collectively. jupiter is harmoniously linking with both helping us to get a Big Picture view of what this means for us- individually and as a humanity. pay attention to the visions incoming and the opportunities to embrace or better yet initiate change!
thursday october 17th-
the sun in libra opposes retrograde eris in aries at 3:52am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! sun/eris can throw us for a loop- showing us that which we did not want to look at before. remember the libra principle is to find peace and harmony but eris reveals the shadow beneath the facade that creates disharmony. our willingness to look at ALL OF IT- shadow and Light- is key to healing and awakening right now!
pluto in capricon sextiles pallas in scorpio at 5:25am, linking the Lord of the Underworld with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess who is in the sign of pluto. both pluto and pallas in scorpio want to get to the Truth. they are willing to investigate, research, go into the shadows, and dive deep to get to the bottom of things! using this energy to delve into the mysteries and see what is hidden- personally and collectively.
jupiter in sagittarius semisextiles pallas in scorpio at 9:45am, making a minor positive aspect between the planet of expansion and abundance and the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess. we have the jupiter/pluto semisextile linking with pallas- helping us to dive deep AND get a Higher Vision of what is really going on. pallas sees patterns and sees what is hidden- while jupiter helps us take what we see in the depths and bring it into the Light for some Bigger Picture Vision. this is great for shadow work, therapy, investigation, research and shamanic journeys.
friday october 18th-
venus in scorpio trines the mean north node in cancer at 5:21am, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the north node of destiny and evolution. pay attention to relationships, connections, collaborations and opportunities for wealth and abundance right now. doors are opening and positive energy is incoming! with both bodies in water signs- pay attention to your intuition, emotions, dreams and imagination. they can be powerful and revealing!
juno in virgo quincunxes retrograde eris in aries at 11:50am, creating tension between the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. last week thursday pluto trined juno and today eris quincunxes her- so we have the pluto/eris square triggering the Goddess that governs partnerships of all kinds- marriage, romantic, business, financial and otherwise. there can be disruptions in relationships right now and revelations of things going on behind the scenes. the key is to be willing to see into the shadows with discernment and clarity. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is important right now. don’t stuff it but don’t react in it either. use anger to motivate you to take action and set the right boundaries!
saturday october 19th-
retrograde uranus in taurus sesquiquadrates ceres in sagittarius at 1:56am, creating tension between the Rebel and Revolutionary and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. there can be some upheaval and chaos playing out in home/family situations, in regards to our safety and security, and in regards to the environment and Mother Earth. being aware of where our needs are running us OR where we are escaping honoring our needs for connections, security and intimacy is key.
mercury in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn at 3:21pm, linking the mind in the sign of the Underworld with the planet that rules the Underworld! this is very deep astrology for penetrating conversations, insights and aha moments- as well as therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. anything that helps us get to the bottom of things is supported right now!
sunday october 20th-
mercury in scorpio semisextiles jupiter in sagittarius at 4:23am, linking the planet of communication and thinking with the planet of expansion and abundance. this is a great aspect for learning, teaching, writing and opening the mind. with the aspect occuring in the early morning hours pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.
at 6:58am venus in scorpio sextiles saturn in capricorn, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is great for getting serious and focused. committing more deeply to ourselves, partners and/or our financial abundance is supported right now. with scorpio and capricorn involved we can also get more committed to our business and financial success with awareness of the slow, steady steps we need to take to get further on that path.
have a beautiful week…
Divine Harmony is dedicated to communicating with one’s higher Self by way of the celestial realms. Just as the microcosm is contained in the macrocosm and vice-versa – Divine Harmony believes that the stars and planets have connections to the people, places and things that inhabit the earth, and there is a way to find the pattern of communication and connection by divining the stars.
BML (black moon lilith) is being included in the weekly interpretations now. the highest expression of joining these two is symbolized by the high priestess tarot card. she sits between the black and white pillars- the black being the pillar of severity and the white being the pillar of mercy. i use the mean position of BML, which in contrast to the fluctuating motion of the true position, advances steadily.
