Dear Friends,

New Moon with a partial/hybrid solar eclipse is Sunday, November 3 at 5:50 AM MST. (As we will be in standard time, daylight savings ending at midnight of the 2nd)This is a truly powerful time to set new intentions, rules and disciplined commitments especially about what you don’t want. It may be more difficult to get clarity about what you wish to manifest but you should by this time be clear about what is not serving you. It is enough to anchor the boundary against what you no longer wish to experience or engage in. Allow spirit to bring you the timing and the clarity of the how and when. And then trust that it will be so.

 Scorpio just can’t help itself.  It’s deep, it’s intense, and it’s the mystery and power of the dark feminine.  It rules the realms of death, giving birth, the intimacy of sex, surrender, taxes, inheritance, the truth that cannot be denied, the crossroads, the underworld.  Now why does that sound so spooky and make us want to turn away?

 Scorpio so aptly placed covering the midpoint of Fall and Winter – Samhain, Day of the Dead, Halloween…when the veil is thinned and we can commune with the invisible worlds and those that have gone before us.

We have the Pluto-Uranus Square:  Pluto, the modern ruler of Scorpio and ruler of this chart, has powerfully come into its fourth of seven exact squares with Uranus on November first.  We live in a time of significant, massive cultural shift much like the 60’s, the Great Depression period or the French and American Revolutions that our current time frame has much in common with astrologically.  The old ways that we have held will be surrendered, offered up for a deep rebirth.  We are all very aware of what is outmoded and dying; we have daily reminders of the devastation of what separation and greed and the division of Spirit from matter has created.  And now, after one of the most magnificent Grand Trines in history this summer with Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn in the water signs for months, we find ourselves in a huge growth period from early October to through November.  (link here to read more)
