Astral activity is light and relatively easy going for the next couple of weeks, giving us a brief respite from the general intensity of our time. While a sense of instability in the world, and perhaps in our own personal lives, will increase towards the end of the year and into spring of 2014, what is also present is opportunity.
The time between a lunar eclipse and the following solar one can be a very intense time. The fact that the solar eclipse is occurring in the sign of Scorpio makes it even moreso. Most of my posts are general and discuss the basic themes of a particular set of transits, but this post cannot be quite that impersonal. A close friend of my daughter’s was seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident and that event has occupied most of my time during the last 10 days.
We are in the middle of several overlapping transits that add enormously to the intensity of the next month and beyond. I have written many articles on Mercury retrograde which you can find on this website as this every 4-month phenomenon trigger many issues, some of which can be quite beneficial. So let me begin this article by going into some of the details of this particular cycle.
Venus is so over serious Scorpio. Without so much as a wayward glance back, she leaps onto the Sagittarius Express the morning of October 7th, leaving behind her baggage of intensity for a more light hearted, boundless exploration of love and relationships.
The Sun arrives at the pivotal Equinox point of 0 degrees Libra at 1:44 pm on September 22nd. The moment marks the beginning of a new three month cycle as represented here on Earth by the change of season. We may sense a palpable shift in our internal gears as the archetypal symbol of our center of gravity enters this cardinal sign, generating a burst of energy to thrust us in a new direction.
Busy cross currents continue with the planets dispersed across the zodiac, each pulling focus in their direction as alignments among them apply and wane, their voices creating a multi-layered chant that, depending on how we individually respond, could seem discordant or harmonic, irregular or rhythmic, and manifest in chaos or dreams come true.
