On Monday, Mercury exits Libra and enters Scorpio. Our communications and conversations will go deeper now. Or maybe we'll just go silent.
The Libran dance of civility ends and we are beckoned into that dark corner of the dance floor where numbers are exchanged on little pieces of paper, backdoor deals are sealed with handshakes, lips get bruised, hotel keys exchanged and communication taboos get broken.
(although this year's Mercury in Libra transit was less about civility - was there any civility? ack - and more about women's voices - Libra is ruled by Venus)
Scorpian freedom comes through honesty - the naked, make-up left in the cabinet, this might get ugly kind of honesty. Naming our fear always takes away its power over us. Keep this in mind now.
The best way to handle the entire Mercury in Scorpio season (thru 11/9) is with honesty. I'll do a post later this week.
On Tuesday, Venus (in Sagittarius) squares Neptune (in Pisces). This transit can make Venus ruled love and money (also women, beauty, values) situations appear better or just bigger than they actually are.
Rose colored glasses can get us carried away with people, situations and ideas. There is potential for disappointment or exaggeration here. This stuff might not look so great or so important in the light of day.
Although, if we can get past our immediate urge to just run away and forget about the whole thing, there could be something real that can be built on over time, if we still want to.
This could also play out as us dealing with our own insecurity.
Addictions, and escape mechanisms, will have heightened energy. This isn't the best time to commit too much. We could be too trusting now. We could also attract people and situations that can't be trusted. Let things play out a bit.
The stuff that looks too good or too big to be true will be shown for what it really is very quickly.
With Neptune, stuff could be happening behind the scenes that we don't know about. This could also involve healing or hospitals. Whatever this challenge is we'll stay positive.
On Wednesday, Venus sextiles Jupiter (in Libra). This is great energy to embark on a journey with someone (or work with something/someone foreign) and offers up good luck with love, money, women and values. Coming right after yesterday's square between Venus and Neptune makes me wary this could be more of the same overblown situation that square activated - on the other hand with the mutual reception of Venus and Jupiter I wrote about last week - this harmonious energy could be as simple and positive as a chance to look good, feel good, socialize and attract more.
Now, if you might think, you can push off the Tuesday stuff into Wednesday and get a better result ... well, maybe, but maybe not. Most likely something has to be worked through the unrealistic, exaggerated or hidden energy on Tuesday to get us to the more harmonious, open door energy on Wednesday, if you see what I mean here.
With Venus in Sagittarius this could not only involve Venus themes (love, money, women, value, beauty) but also Sagittarius themes - travel, legal, education, media, marketing, religious, political.
On Thursday, Mercury will hook up with the Sun. This is called a Superior Conjunction. It's an important point when our mind and energetic life come into sync
(babies born now with have super quick minds and tongues, an innate ability to shine through language although their words could be overshadowed by their father).
Since this is happening in Scorpio this could shine a light on something, most likely a naked truth, that has been hidden or could be uncomfortable. It can also illuminate and carry information to us through our Scorpio natal house. This might connect back to mid-September when we had the last conjunction (in Virgo).
This could be a good day to shine with our words through our Scorpio house theme or Scorpio ruled - taxes, debts, inheritance, loans, joint finances, death, sex, rebirth, transformation. Mental activities will take precedence and our thinking should be 'on the ball'. Great day to tackle paperwork.
(for example if you are an Aries rising, Scorpio rules your 8th house of "other people's money or values". This could bring some uncomfortable or spotlighted information to your attention about your partner's income or a debt, tax situation, inheritance, etc.)
On Saturday, Uranus (in Aries) squares Mars (in Capricorn). This could feel like a sudden change with our security or something/someone we depend on. Accidents are possible with this energy. Take care driving, operating machinery and working with fire. There is a possibility of sudden (Uranus) violence (Mars) or a sudden action that lands us somewhere unexpected or creates the need for us to move in a new direction.
We might regret actions we take suddenly and/or forcefully now. This would not be a good time to try to restrain someone else's freedom either unless we want to be on the losing side of that battle.
(for example if you are a Scorpio rising, Capricorn rules your 3rd house - communication - and Aries rules your 6th house - work, health, day to day. This could bring hot tempers and disruptive interaction into your day to day situation and job. Someone might say something that feels like an attack or some 'out of the blue' information could create the need for you to take some kind of action. Be cautious and use cool headed common sense with your communications and take care with your physical health.)
If you want to know how any/all of this week's transits could play out for you leave a comment or send an email and I'll work off your rising sign and give you a quick update.
HEADS UP - The days and weeks after this Sunday's New Moon are an excellent time to launch something new. We won't have this kind of energy again until next Summer (!) with all inner planets strong and moving full steam ahead.
We'll talk about this later- but if you have something to get on, November is going to be a good time to get on it!
