Scorpio Super Full Moon – Breaking of the dam

Taurus and Scorpio could be called “the give and take axis.” It’s here we’re confronted with what we’re holding onto and what we’re releasing. Taurus asserts into physical manifestation, produces results and seeks containment for consistency, while Scorpio rules the other end of the life cycle, taking compost and the deceased down into the unseen for death and renewal. This axis is no playground for the faint of heart. It’s intense and persistent.

This Full Moon is Super for a few reasons. A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is physically closer to Earth in its orbit, so we both see and feel it more intensely. This particular Full Moon is called the Pink Moon due to the flowers that bloom this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere. Check out this Pink Moon design by Felix Felgo!

Embedded in this Full Moon is an unpredictable, wild card energy. Since April 2018, Uranus has been plodding through Taurus, slowly destabilising our relationship to security, finances, resources and the planet. What we once relied upon is now being eroded and any weaknesses and vulnerabilities are being exposed. Change is the nemesis of the fixed signs, and right now it’s the only reliable constant we have. Tonight, Uranus fuses with the Sun as part of the light projected onto the Moon; the usual steadiness of Taurus and Scorpio is jolted into erratic bursts of fits and starts, wrapped up in the juxtaposition of deep feelings and emotional detachment.

Throughout 2021, Saturn is adding extra pressure to Uranus. We’re experiencing this as tension between old and new, restriction and freedom, in-person and online connections, to name a few. This is all being amplified under this Full Moon suggesting that something has to give. Where resistance is strong, the force of change is stronger. We’re moving out of old, stable patterns into an unknown new.

The Moon, while bright in fullness, struggles in Scorpio, as does Mars in Cancer who is hosting the Moon overnight. The Moon and Mars mutually receiving each other is not as fortuitous as it might seem. Neither are well equipped to deal with the, dare I say, dyke giving way that usually holds space for the moody, emotional waters that flood through grief. Pluto stationing retrograde only adds powerful potency to that which is unearthed and released from the emotional depths.

There’s a cracking open occurring under this Moon. Plans to let go are often wrapped up in a sentiment of readiness and voluntary release, but the light of this Moon will shine with piercing exactness on where we are kidding ourselves and what needs cleansing. It’s not the sweet smelling roses of Taurus Season past. It’s the thorns that pierce and activate the emotional trenches, and the tension of division that will reveal where we are stuck and resistant, in a tedious rut of sameness.

Taurus season offers renewal. It opens us up to what can flower from compost, what can be reborn after loss. To reap its rewards, however, we need to persevere through the challenges and move with the changes. Any disconnection we have with the Earth is reflective of the disconnection within ourselves. This scattered, sharp and restless Full Moon energy is rewiring us, making sure we’re plugged in to the right places for realignment. Any fears and emotional resentments lying below the surface will release as the dam breaks because we can no longer hold on to anything that is holding us back.

Mars Rx Fatigue

We’re on the last leg of what may feel like a marathon.



Mars – the planet of action, assertion and drive – has been held back in retrograde motion since September 9th. It’s been a battle of will, butting heads, red flags and extremism.

If you’re feeling fatigued right now, you’re not alone. It’s exhausting. This whole year is exhausting. Good news is that Mars will start to move forward (direct) again on November 13th. It’s not long now.

What we can all start to acknowledge that the world has significantly changed and that means that self care has changed, too. We need a long term strategy. Short sighted focus will only lead to burn out. Take it easy out there. Re-assess your game plan in true retrograde style and aim your sling shot in the direction you want because we will be released!

It takes a village to raise a Boomer

This time last year we moved through similar terrain.

Mercury kicked up its usual retrograde dust in Scorpio, and this in turn activated the ties that bind Millennials, Gen X and Boomers.

This article breaks down the astro-connections between each generation, their often unwanted similarities and highlights the intersections where learning and growth can take place.

Hades calling

Hades called. There’s a buy one Retrograde get 3 free sale going on. Stocks aren’t limited & participation is compulsory. 💯

We’re still following the funeral procession that was the Full Moon in Scorpio and Saturn has today slammed on the breaks, just days before Venus & Jupiter. In a few days 4 planets will be retrograde. This week will likely throw us for a loop. Think of it like being in a car going around a corner at high speed; don’t try to push against it, lean in & trust your instincts. Find your flow.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Moon in Capricorn is snuggling up to Pluto all day today making sure to rattle any cobwebs of grief & uncertainty you were hoping to ignore.

Lean in. Listen. Watch carefully. Whatever is taking flight right now will likely land as a message further along the road. 💫

🌹SIGN UP IS OPEN for the Venus Rx workshop Jessika Fancy & I are offering. You’ll get weekly Astro-magical-creative guidance to see you through. 🕯💞 See you there!

Incubation

I’ve been thinking about this time that we’re all experiencing together in terms of incubation. It reminds us that while it may appear like we’re doing nothing in the eyes of capitalism, we’re actively nurturing the new world into existence. Incubation allows us to observe the destruction that capitalism has on this living, breathing organism we exist on, as well as the bodies we exist within.

The world over, we’re being forced to do the exact same thing. This virus, like Aquarius, doesn’t discriminate. It takes everyone into consideration, everywhere. No one is spared. Therefore as we look at the world, and ourselves, from the inside out a consciousness shift is occurring. History shows us that major, fundamental changes in society, in how people think and what we think about is almost always accompanied by a collective event that forces the transmutation. It’s also often accompanied by great resistance from those who hold power. 

This incubation means that Capitalisms’ biggest fear can be realised: when our forced participation is halted we have time and space to ask legitimate questions such as, “Why do we work to live and eat?” “Why are we contributing to systems that hurt us and the planet?” “How do we deconstruct the old and build a more inclusive, equitable, respectful new?”  Whether you’re dependent on capitalism or capitalism is dependent on your poverty (financially, spiritually or mentally), the instability and inequality is being exposed and affecting everyone.

Jupiter in Capricorn rebirths Yoda

There’s been an influx of Yoda memes ever since Jupiter moved into Capricorn, not surprising, really . Yoda is the perfect archetype to show up since we now have 4 planets & a node all getting down to business in Cap…& further shows that you don’t have to ‘believe’ in astrology to be influenced by it 🤷🏼‍♂️



Saturn, Capricorn’s daddy, represents wisdom & ageing, maturation & growth, & the responsibility weaved within the journey. It stands for nothing less than dedication & hard work…all of which take time. Time. It’s our elder, Saturn, whose been there a million times before reminding us as we transition into a new paradigm that you can’t hurry a good thing. 



Being the boundary line of our known world it’s faaaaaar out in the solar system, and often the rewards come from time alone, pushing the limits we’ve imposed on ourselves & shedding the aspects of self we’ve outgrown.

Channel your inner Yoda through the upcoming eclipse season, aiming for any difficulties to be transformed to wisdom you can share with others on the path. I like to read stories about people on their death bed, what they regretted & what they cherish, to get clear with Saturn

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.
