  • Scorpio is very intense and one of the most sensitive of the zodiac signs
  • The moon relates to our emotions, indicating we could be feeling everything more deeply for the next couple of days
  • We can immerse ourselves in our projects now.
  • Watch for becoming obsessed with someone or something…. not everyone falls for someone at the same time and patience may be needed regarding sensitive relationship matters
  • Be sure that your partner, friend, lover, co-worker or school friend is really trying to upset your personal apple cart before making waves
  • We could be encouraged or directed towards taking risks or doing things we wouldn’t normally do, especially those of a group or team nature. 
  • Sex may be high on the agenda for some of us… so if you don’t want to help the world population grow right now use caution… 🙂 
  • Some of us may be highly creative while this influence is about, while others may get connected to their psychic side… 
  • Secrets may be told now… we can be enticed to open up to others about our deepest feelings/fantasy’s… take care who you share your “secrets” with. 
  • While we will all be effected slightly by the Scorpio moon, she will have a greater effect on those who have the following in their charts.. and those who have a strong Aries placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Taurus
    • Moon in the 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, the Sun or Plut0

NOTES: Neptune Turns Direct

Astrology Dice with zodiac symbol of Pisces and its ruling planet Neptune

  • Neptune, the planet of romance, nostalgia, magic, avoidance and fantasy, turns direct on December 1 @ 8:22 am (ET) @ 5:22 am (PT). 
  • Neptune is our “dreamy” planet, its’ where we escape to especially when life has been particularly challenging. When Neptune goes retrograde as he has been since June 25, our sense of what is real and what isn’t can become cloudy. 
  • As Neptune becomes direct, the veil that has been preventing us from seeing clearly slowly begins to lift… Relationships may be on the agenda of what needs to be improved or “discarded”..
  • Neptune is creative, and now that he has turned direct, creative ideas, projects and plans can begin to flow freely. 
  • Under the retrograde motion of Neptune, it’s possible to become more “connected” with our psychic side. With Neptune direct, we can take what we have learnt over the last 5 months and apply it to todays situations or challenges. 
  • It is hopeful that as Neptune turns direct, the cloud will disperse so one may see the reality happening around them. 
  • Because Neptune is an outer and slower moving planet, his influence is subtle for most of us… However, those with the following chart influences, may feel his influence stronger. “go with your gut instincts” 🙂 
  • Pisces in Neptune
  • Pisces Sun 
  • Pisces Moon
  • Any aspects to Neptune 
  • Neptune in the 12th house
  • To a lessor effect: Any Virgo chart influences.

HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAILY LIVES… 

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as Opportunity Periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.

The NEW MOON in Scorpio

November 4th 

  • The new moon is traditionally the best time for beginnings… The influences listed above will be stronger under a new moon… especially for those who have Scorpio chart placings… 
  • When the moon renews herself in the sign of Scorpio, it may be wise for us to “be careful what we wish for” … Scorpio, has a connection to the “mysteries of the under world” She is intrigued by it… She will research it and sometimes embrace it… She is ruled by Pluto (old ruler is Mars) and connected to the 8th house. 
  • Scorpio is intense, everything she does she must feel “connected” to… This means our emotions during this new moon will also be intense… Be sure that what you are feeling is real and not enhanced by the Scorpio moon..
  • If you have an idea or project you want to get off of the ground, the better day to begin would be on the 5th when the moon has moved into her first quarter. 

NOTES: 

  • Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money enters into the sign of Capricorn on Friday November 5th @ 6:44 am(ET) @ 3:44 am (PT). Capricorn is the “sensible” sign, interested in business and career and connected the 10th house of public image. We may find ourselves combining diplomacy with our business dealings, and we may be extra careful about our appearance when dealing with the public. Take advantage of this time when it comes to your career or work, you may be more noticed by the boss, promotions could be at your door. If you are looking for work right now, you could do well.. it’s all about charm, and Venus has loads of that share… 🙂 When it comes to our personal relationships, some of us may want a commitment from our other half…
  • Mercury, the planet of communications, technology and transportation, moves into the sign of Scorpio on Friday November 5th. Our communications could get a little more passionate during this time. Need a loan or a Mortgage? this could be a good time to apply for one… Financial dealings with partners, both personal and business could also go well… Discuss what you need to and get things sorted now. Our thinking may delve into the underworld, and some of us may be drawn towards esoteric subjects, let your mind wander and wonder…

Mercury Retrograde: Enters Storm on September 20: Retrograde September 26/27 to October 18 2021: Remains in “storm” until October 22

Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury vector symbol

Mercury Retrograde

Sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂 

When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to, and do as many things as possible that have the letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdecorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, and if you don’t, ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be RE-done at a later date
  • Mercury is in the sign of Libra during this retrograde motion… Life area’s involving relationships, partnerships and spending money may need to be adjusted. Be patient in your relationships, don’t jump to conclusions, but don’t compromise so much that you lose a part of yourself… leave sensitive topics until after October 22nd if possible. 

 NOTE:

  • When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.
  • Mercury entered its “storm” on September 20th {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on September 26/27 @ 10:10 pm (PT) @ 1:10 am (ET):
  • Mercury turns direct on October 18 @11:17 am (ET) @ 8:17 am (PT)
  • Mercury is clear of its storm October 22: {look over any notes that you made earlier, and see what makes sense now}
