Libra and Scorpio Time
September 23 to November 22, 2006
This is an evocative time with planet Pluto (demoted but no less
potent!) squaring off to the Karmic Axis. This pattern holds through
the Full Moon in Aries on October 7 and the New Moon in Libra on
October 22, adding an underlying sense of coercion and chaos. Since
September 24 to 28 has a Jupiter/Neptune stamp of confusion and
October 24 to 31 has the final anxiety-provoking Jupiter/Saturn
‘square’, it may feel like a giant melting pot. Yet
the Full Moon in Taurus on November 5 and the New Moon in Scorpio
on November 21 carry a different energy – the flowing ‘trine’
links between Saturn and Pluto, which will extend into mid 2007,
help us get real about learning from the past in order to safeguard
|Since Sun goes into Libra on September 23, we
have to ask - what is lady Venus up to? She is biding her time …until
September 30 when she dances into Libra then party time begins. By
Full Moon on October 7 Venus embraces Sun and Mars making your birthday
month particularly pleasurable. Your Libra New Moon on October 22
is also about relationships – enjoy. When Venus moves into sultry
Scorpio on October 24 and you get down to business - money matters
now! A generous Jupiter and productive Venus help you to make the
most of this time and material rewards flow from now through November.
Remember - delays that only ease up in mid November are an opportunity
to foster insight, to redirect energy. Go with the flow.
|Adventurous and visionary qualities have been
prominent this year with Jupiter in your sign, yet repeated battering
from Saturn and Neptune have also stirred up obstacles to your ambitions
and excessive drama. Cheer up – it’s character building
and there’s magic in the mayhem! Breaking point is late October
when Jupiter ‘squares’ Saturn for the last time so don’t
fall for an anxiety attack. Your idea of business is being rebuilt.
This initiation process occurs as Sun enters Scorpio. Since the Scorpio
party also includes Venus, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter, nothing is impossible
- romance, business success, a more passionate life, are all within
your grasp. Take your time - November 21’s Scorpio New Moon
energises core renewal.
| Always the adventurer at heart, September has
been high octane, since Pluto went direct in your sign. Now following
your heart is your credo, particularly in October. October 7’s
Full Moon in your Lo-o-ve Zone has potential for passionate participation,
a great gathering, like minds. October 22’s New Moon makes you
the initiator. A powerful combo of Saturn and Pluto from late October
to late December spikes your willpower, strengthens your focus. When
Venus enters Sagittarius on November 17, for 24 days, it’s time
to replace ‘should’ with ‘feels good’. In
late November you claim what really matters as you begin your best
year in twelve – your Jupiter year arrives.
| Sun sails into your Career Zone
on September 23, as planet Saturn begins to form a powerful alliance
with Pluto (demoted but potent). This coupling becomes closer through
October and November spelling a phase of growth and progress. November
5’s Full Moon can be intensely satisfying and would be a wonderful
time to gather with like-minded people. Despite the sweet times on
offer, October 28 to November 17 is a time to avoid large purchases
and not commit to ‘deals’. Building good relationships
is the work that will pay back later. A new sense of optimism overcomes
your native caution and good ideas for practical ways to invest in
your future arise around New Moon on November 21.
|Some things test your patience, but you are a
super capable Aquarian, so breathe deeply. An alternation of high
hopes and uncertainty, vision and confusion are the order of the day
from September 24 to 27 when Jupiter ‘squares’ Neptune.
It gets a lot easier in October when Venus slides into your sign of
adventure and fun, meeting up with Mars. You get inspired and it is
a great month to develop a new concept or business plan - one that
ups the pleasure quota of your daily life. Enjoy it, because October
24 –29 is the final Saturn test for 2006. Give your partner(s)
uncritical support as they may be under great pressure. You get the
good stuff from late November.
|Soothing, sensitive Pisces is in a turbulent rush
these days. Having Uranus as a bedmate and the many karmic reminders
of North Node’ also in Pisces, unsettles you more than you prefer.
Yet pulling yourself out of your primordial ocean is necessary from
time to time. No more passive Pisces! September kicked off with an
emotional Pisces Full Moon and a newly energised career push. It is
right to be rethinking your vocational options but merely debilitating
if you indulge in Pluto-induced power struggles or coercion. Ideas
come together in October. With the Lover, the Warrior and the Sun’s
Light in your adventure sign from October 24 to November 18, travel
and spiritual exploration both look good. It may be old territory
|Leaping and frolicking for the sheer fun of it,
is usually good sense for the Ram/Lamb and your Aries Full Moon on
October 7 is bound to induce such a response. With your red ruler
Mars in Libra now, keeping pace with the Sun, it’s love, marriage
and friendship time. Once Lover Venus enters the picture as October
begins, the month is blessed by all efforts to strengthen and honour
relationships. The last week of October is more difficult and needs
tactful restraint when lovers and friends act out their stress. Don’t
take it personally, it’s not about you but will be if you ‘butt’
in. Instead maximise now and November through creative effort –
you see real results in December.
|Gentle by disposition and instinctually caring,
you are the Earth sign ruled by Venus. You love a simple life but
emotional complexity and career question marks have ruled since December
’05 / January ’06 when the first Jupiter/Saturn ‘square’
started. Now you are approaching their final challenge in late October
so hold on to your serenity, channel the energy to make constructive
changes to your home, honour the people you love and celebrate love.
Don’t overreact at Taurus Full Moon on November 5 - someone,
or some role you depend upon, could go pear-shaped disappointing you.
Be patient if you are delayed as November 18 to 24 galvanises things
into action in a very nice way.
|Pluto-driven, your ambition to achieve meaningful
partnerships is strong now. Yet hidden agendas will get you into trouble.
Since October 7’s Full Moon brings your groups, friendships
and social roles to a climactic point, why not harness this celebration
energy. With Sun and four friends in your Love Zone, get ready for
the fresh creative start that October 22’s New Moon presages.
But when Mercury, your usually speedy ruler slides backwards through
sensitive Water sign Scorpio from October 28 to November 17, take
care – you could be ‘thin-skinned’ about petty issues.
It is November 24 that begins your most romantic cycle in years. Jupiter
enters your marriage house for a twelve month stay.
|The soft-centred self protective Crab is very
capable of caring for others, building security. Saturn has been in
your money house since August ’05 and it ‘s time to reap
some rewards for your hard efforts. Material gain has been helped
along by an expansion of your creative energy via Jupiter and interesting
associations via Uranus have helped a lot. Late September and late
October are times to avoid buying into other people’s stress.
Full Moon on October 7 and November 5 are both exciting punctuation
marks but it is November 5 that reminds you to appreciate the good
things in your life. Friendship and love comes your way giving you
a warm glow in November. Follow your heart.
|Beware a confusion of ideals in late September.
If a partner or someone special to you goes into meltdown then, support
them with empathy and good humour. Judging them or shouldering their
burden is not advised. October 7’s Full Moon offers a good chance
to let off steam in stimulating ways and enhances communication for
the next two weeks. Then Jupiter makes its final ‘square’
from October 24 to 29, and a challenging cycle you have been in since
last December reaches its grand finale. Be cautious. Since Communicator
Mercury goes ‘retro’ in your Home Zone at the same time,
don’t expect to see results until mid November. Be patient,
review your security and family concerns; plan December’s pleasures.
|With the past karma point in Virgo and Pluto squaring
it, it’s hard to avoid the odd obsessive-compulsive moment!
Blame your past if you like but getting on with solutions is more
your style. October 23 to 29 plants seeds for later financial rewards.
Your earthy sign is clever and practical in solving problems but overload
could occur when Mercury is ‘retro’ from October 29 to
November 18. Don’t push too hard, be proactive by rewriting
or rethinking plans and renewing contact with siblings and friends
during that time. New Moon on November 21 is the take off point for
social activities and short trips but from November 24 your greatest
satisfaction will be found close to home.
