Early October's Shifting Cosmic Energies

The Cosmic Story keeps rocking us to our roots.  Tuesday night, Venus, the planet of love and connection, left Leo, the sign of self-expression and individuation.  Have you acknowledged the people and things you love?  It helps to know what you want now that Venus has moved into Virgo, so listen to your own values and inner wisdom in dealing with people and situations.

On Thursday, Jupiter goes retrograde at 17* Gemini, focusing Jupiter’s curiosity within to check out the facts and figure out what to believe and what old ideas to leave behind.   The Sabian symbol for 17* Gemini is: The head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker.  Take this time until Jupiter goes direct on January 30, 2013, to get your thinking aligned with your heart values.

On Friday, Mercury leaves Libra after joining up with Saturn, focusing the mind on what’s essential to us in our relationships.  Then Mercury goes into Scorpio, digging into what emotional issues have been hidden within your psyche.  It’s time to recognize what you really feel, name it and transform it!

Hours later on Friday afternoon, Saturn also goes into Scorpio, where it will remain for the next 2 ½ years.  Before Saturn moves out of Libra, make sure your relationship karma is renewed.  Let those people who are important to you know!  With Saturn in Scorpio, we will have the opportunity to develop intimacy with others, dropping the old barriers and healing the old wounds that keep us from a deep sharing.  On the outer level, Scorpio deals with shared resources, so it will be interesting to see how we deal with our collective resources in the coming years.  Since it’s still around 100* out west, perhaps we can all acknowledge that global warming is an issue that has to be dealt with.

On Saturday, Mars leaves Scorpio where he battled with dragons and goes into fiery Sagittarius, so watch your energy zoom and stay focused.
