Astrology sessions last week reminded me that the Saturn/Pluto conjunction was approaching, exact on January 12, 2020. I shuffled my deck to see what messages these planets would reveal to us earthlings below; the cards I pulled were Five of Crystals (Negativity) and Sage of Wands (Seer).
Mercury, now in the sign of Scorpio, stations retrograde next month, which means this is the month to confirm agreements and solidify plans, or plan to wait.
Folks are definitely feeling the aftershocks of the summer’s eclipse season, and this will continue throughout the remainder of the month. By August, the dust will clear and we will know where we stand on all fronts. So be patient, friend. Trust an unfolding process.
“No, I don’t want to. No! I don’t want to; leave me alone,” said the little girl inside of me protesting sudden developments brought on by eclipses. She is kicking and screaming and resisting, and I have spent the past week trying to soothe her and bring her calm.

I have been wanting to write this blog for a while now, but could not find the words, and felt a little scared to do so. You see, I have recently discovered yet another damaging belief that I continue to internalize, and it goes something like this: If I disappoint others, they will no longer want to love, befriend, or support me.
Venus dips back in to the sign of Libra this week, as we approach All Hallows Eve on Wednesday, October 31. Relationship matters will continue to be under review, as we each work a bit harder to identify our true relationship needs and values. Financial affairs are also up for consideration, as we assess what gives us a sense of security.

“Jupiter in Scorpio will drudge up the muck that resides beneath the surface of who we are, and in a big way. Skeletons in closets will be revealed. Lies will be unearthed. Wounds will be triggered. This is a necessary process that Scorpio does well. What follows will be a grand release that helps us to heal and evolve.”
I wrote this almost a year ago. The week we just had is a testament to the above truth.
