Bon Voyage, Jupiter.

Jupiter in Sagittarius 2018 – 2019

Jupiter is in the final stage of its gallop through Sagittarius. It has reached the peak. From this standpoint it can envision the road ahead into Capricorn, equipped with the wisdom gained while travelling through the wide terrain of Sagittarius.

Jupiter is classified as a benefic, enhancing whatever it touches. This past year however, it was sometimes difficult to understand the beneficence when Saturn & Pluto over shadowed everything in cranky Capricorn. Thank f*ck Jupiter was in Sag because it took the edge off some of the tension & allowed us to envision the world we want to create when we reach the other side.

Jupiter has been in Sag since Nov 2018. Reflecting back on what this last year has granted you, where did you have growth & learning, travel & expansion that now allows you to view the world through a broader, more encompassing lens, & how did you access optimism through trying times? All of this can be attributed to Jupiter. Now, as the energy calms, how will you gather up those resources and utilise them in a more practical way?

On Dec 2nd, Jupiter will slow down the pace & trot into Capricorn until Dec 2020. It will be an interesting year, to say the least. Capricorn is not an easy, happy go lucky energy, & with both Saturn & Pluto already there, Jupiter won’t be as effective with lifting the mood as it has been in Sag. It’ll be a year to dig deep & utilise those personal resources on the ground in the day to day grind. We’ll all be challenged to mature our relationship to power & to untangle the voices of fear and limitation that keep us bound. 

Write yourself a note from this 29* Sagittarius vantage point that you can rely on through the coming year. If you offer Capricorn a tool it’ll learn how to use it…so give yourself your best.

November 11 marks the midway point of this Mercury retrograde in Scorpio cycle. 

Today the Sun, the great illuminator, takes Mercury under its wing and protects it. Shielded by blazing light, all of Mercury’s qualities, all of the back tracking and digging, all that has been unearthed in the first part of this Retrograde cycle pause for a moments grace. This day holds the potential for razor sharp clarity, if only fleeting. From this point onwards Mercury is moving away from the Sun toward the deepest degree of the retrograde cycle where it will stop and move forward again. We have 9 days remaining to clear up, realign and sort out what Mercury has brought our attention to.

Mercury Rx in Scorpio Horoscopes

Each of us has Mercury kicking up dust somewhere in our charts. Whatever house Mercury is currently passing through will indicate where our attention is being drawn and what issues we’re being dragged down into the Underworld to deal with. This is not the only cycle coming to an end, and it’s not the only way in which we’re being asked to let go. But like any detailed work that needs to get done, it will sit there glaring at us until we do it.

Scorpio depths are not the periphery

Anyone else feel like they finally understand what it’s like to be a Scorpio 24/7? This Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (leading us toward the Pluto-Saturn conjunction in January😳) is Scorpio Season on full blast! Whoooooweeee!

Scorpio Season Mercury retrograde 2019

The effects might not be visible on the periphery, but so much is stirring inside, below the surface.

It’s not ‘normal’ for us to be existing with constant grief, over stimulation & anxiety, & no one is spared right now. Mercury retrograde cycles are great opportunities for us to go off line, spending less time in the loop of scrolling & more time listening to what’s asking for our attention.

Mercury rules communication, & listening is just as valid as output. Listen to your body, chew your food, watch your breathing & trust those who love you that can see your blind spots. Boundaries are there for self care!

For the duration of this Mercury Rx cycle I’m offering astrological updates on how to release what is asking to be detoxed, Scorpio style.

Mercury Rx Scorpio Detox

Mercury Retrograde cycles coincide with large numbers of people going offline for a short term reset-detox. It makes sense considering Mercury is the messenger of the cosmos, retrograde periods call us to review, revisit, reset and technology pervades most aspects of daily life.

October 30th, 2019 Mercury digs in its heels and stations at the 28th degree of Scorpio, or the 238th degree of the Zodiac. It will retrograde back to the 12th degree of Scorpio on November 19th. That’s 20 days for you to detox, to call back your inspiration, assess any unhealthy patterns and reset boundaries. The Phoenix you choose to rise as depends on how deep you want to go. It’s your call and you are your only judge.

For the duration of this Mercury Retrograde period I’ll be here offering Merc Perk detox tips, decoding the messages from the Cosmos and watching how the planetary configurations play out on the world stage. It’s a process of slowing down, being present, re-empowering ourselves and consciously composting what needs to be released.

I will continue to share updates throughout this Rx season . I hope you’ll join me on this journey into your own diamond mine reclaiming what has been lost and releasing what has expired.

Be like a tree and leaf!

After leaving San Francisco yesterday we headed for the Redwoods in Northern California. I chose this spot and this date purposefully knowing Mercury would be Rx, knowing that it’s Samhain and knowing I need to be in nature at this time of year, every year.

Standing at the foot of these literal giants I fell silent; there’s nothing that could be said to enhance the moment and words would only get in the way of listening. Impressed by how spongey the Earth is underfoot, able to hold up all 350 ft of solid tree, I take in more of the surroundings as the forest begins to open up. Lying horizontal are several giants. No longer upright, yet no less participating, present and necessary. No less breathtaking.

I’m reminded of The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. In it he describes the importance of dead trees to the ongoing sustainability of a forest. No longer vertical, trees still share energy and nutrients with each other, operating much like a family reliant on one another for survival.

Scorpio has in recent history become associated with death and transformation, due mainly to its also modern association with Pluto. But the natural progression of life’s cycle at this time of year does reflect this nocturnal, dying off and transforming phase (in the Northern Hemisphere where Western Astrology originated). Once Libra sets us straight with equal parts day and night, Scorpio Season alerts us to the irreversible descent from Autumn into the cold, dark depths of Winter. The reality of hibernation and retreat is undeniable.

If you can picture yourself as a tree, heavy with golden-red leaves, branches stretching wide having held nests, birds, moss and sunlight, with roots steadfast and deep as the branches rise…..what does this encroaching Winter hold for you? Will you drop a branch or two as the weight of an old story becomes too much to carry forth? How will the leaves that you have grown nourish you as they fall to your feet? How well has your bark protected you in the form of setting and upholding boundaries? Will you do next year differently, wishing you’d been clearer about how much energy you put out, or who you offered shade and shelter to, who you wish had found sanctuary in your forest? What will you mourn and what will you rejoice in the inevitable loss of?

The ways of water

Kootenay National Park, BC

The waters are stirring up what’s been below the surface. For some it stirs a need for connection, for some it’s time to let go.

The Sun & Moon in water signs was the perfect dynamic to gather in Calgary for the 1st of these Living Room Sessions. We talked about wtf is going on; how easy it is to feel powerless when the world is a dumpster fire & the ways we’re learning to reframe “work” & the Capricorn narrative we’ve inherited.

Today Mercury Retrograde passes through the eye of the needle. It’s like the Winter Solstice of its retrograde phase & we can now breathe out knowing the end is near! Mercury will go direct on August 2nd.

With this Venus~ Pluto playlist blaring in the background it’s not time to look away. Take some time for yourself & listen closer. Often it reveals a diamond, a crystal clear piece of the puzzle that you’ve been waiting for.

Under the current sky it might not be what you want to hear; water is subversive. If you’re noticing water damage in a relationship you know exactly where your own leak is because this didn’t start yesterday. Now is the perfect time to renegotiate boundaries & take out your own garbage. Personal responsibility wears many hats & it starts & ends with you.

Moon landing eclipse~aversary

Image of Earth from Space – source NASA

50 years ago today we (speculatively) sent 3 humans to the Moon. Wether you ‘believe’ it happened or not, something significant unfolded: we saw ourselves for the 1st time from a distance, living on a rock hanging in space. It’s impossible for human consciousness to not shift fundamentally from this point onward. #whatisthemeaningoflife

It’s interesting that this 50th anniversary occurs on a Lunar Eclipse! From the view of this image (taken by the Apollo 11 crew) the Moon is between the Earth & the Sun. These 3 celestial bodies that we rely on indefinitely ~ the Sun, the Moon & the Earth ~ all dance a dance, around & with each other, casting shadows, reflecting light & inspiring wonder. On & on.

I know a lot of folx are having hard things come up in this shadow time ~ ahoy to those who are riding high!

Eclipses stir the pot. They disturb the sediment. It has been an intense week/month/year #lezbereal .Eclipse season can bring up what we haven’t wanted to look at, distilling its poison, revealing the shadow.

Letting go occurs in so many ways & phases. It’s ok to wait for the light to return. It’s ok to have distance for perspective & detach from the stories. Remember that your feet are on the Earth & that staying grounded – or holding your ground – is part of finding your way.

Eclipse stirrings

What a GIFT that facegram was glitchy yesterday.

These eclipses are stirring so much, from so deep. With Mercury coming to a blazing halt in Leo, preparing itself for a retrograde rendezvous (July 8-31), the air is thick & electric.

It’s a lot.

The gift amongst the chaos is in the messages, but the ‘answers’ we’ve become so accustomed to look for are not in the same shape we’re familiar with. So much has changed.

These eclipse #mercperks are nudging us toward realignment with who we are NOW. Not based in the past, not based in what once gave us security, based in what has been revealed to us about ourselves, about family, identity, ancestry & power.

It’s. A. Lot.

If you can ~ swim in the ocean, have a salt bath, scrub off dead skin, get a hair cut, throw out old clothes. Whatever wants to unshackle, let it go & offer space for the new to arise, again & again….
