Mars, the planet of war, masculinity, action, intensity, survival instincts, and libido, is stationing Retrograde in the sign of Gemini beginning today, October 30th, 2022. Mars moved into the air sign Gemini back in August, and will now spend until next year on January 12th, 2023, in Retrograde status.
Jupiter has moved into the emotional and psychic waters of Pisces and will remain in Pisces until December 20th, 2022. Interestingly, Jupiter will be Retrograde for half of this time, until November 24th, 2022, at which point it will station direct. We will get to experience this Jupiter Piscean influence in both his shadow and light for nearly equal duration each.
Jupiter is a planet of luck, fortune, growth, abundance, expansion, exploration, knowledge and spiritual enlightenment. And because we begin this Piscean journey in Retrograde status, we are tasked with the opportunity to dive deeper into the shadow aspects of these attributes to uproot where they are anchored within us. What are our fears, resistances, discouragements, and blockages in relation to our concepts about these attributes? We’ll be thinking big and doing a lot of soul searching during this period.
Time by definition is the continued sequence of existence and events that occurs in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future. It is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or in the conscious experience.
In the twilight predawn hours of October 25th, we welcome in the alchemizing energies of the New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse. Into the further we go, exploring what inspires us, anchors, us, brings us to life, and gives us reason to keep going.
Before us stands a threshold in which we are invited to launch from. The portal waits for us to cross through it. The veil separating us from our past and future is as thin as a silken thread, but taut and strong like connective sinew that binds. We embrace cause and effect, and work through the remnants of karmic debris we recently processed before Saturn turned direct the other day.
Karma, the great equalizer, is making a grand entrance on Sunday October 23rd, 2022 as Saturn goes Direct in the air sign, Aquarius after nearly 5 months in Retrograde status. This happens simultaneously as we enter Scorpio Sun season, and Venus enters Scorpio.
Time has a way of teaching us what other things cannot. Time stretches out before us, giving us pause, reflection, and opportunity for change. Change is what elevates our thinking, and garners us new perspectives through the lens of new experiences. It helps us see truths through other people’s eyes, and gives us opportunities to make wrongs right. The clock of time has reached a pivotal point in our conscious evolution. The sounds of its chimes are ringing through the ethers. It’s calling us to listen, if we are ready to hear what needs to be communicated.
Let’s take a journey together.
The Moon has moved into the Air sign of Gemini today, and is now Trine to both Mercury in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is also Sextile to Jupiter Retrograde in Aries.
This is a really interesting time in which many of us are being called to search our memories for revelations that need to come to light. Gemini is a very fast-moving energy, which pulls at the core of critical thinking. Considering our Sun is still in the Air sign of Libra, we are really thrust into the realm of our mental consciousness. We are prompted to recall and remember all of the messages that have come through to us in dreams, visions, and the whispers of the ethers, so we can catalog them in an organized way, and take whatever action on them that is most beneficial.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, sensuality, and feminine grace, governs both Taurus and Libra. Today, as we welcome in the New Moon in Libra, we are brought into the sphere of Venus’s warm embrace.
Many are leery or downright afraid to work with Kali Ma. Most of the information we find about her pertains to her wrathful side. But there is so much more to her than that. She did embody wrath, yes. But that is because she had reached her breaking point, and was fed up with the carnage she was witnessing. Her creation was literally sprung forth from the need to push back to reset the balance. Her story, or background, or whatever we choose to call it, is expansive and has several far reaching versions to it, all very intricate and fascinating to learn about.
Goddess Antheia is a wonderful Patron to draw upon for those who are seeking stillness, serenity, peace, kindness, and a return to innocence and youth in their lives. It is said that when she appears, some can smell the aroma of fresh floral fragrances, sweet honeysuckle, or dew drops of honey in the atmosphere.
His story is filled with questions, controversy, and differing points of view that scholars have trouble agreeing upon. He was noted to be an Apostle of Christ and trusted member of Jesus’s inner circle. Yet some say he was not even part of the original 12 Apostles, and didn’t adhere to Jesus’s ideologies or doctrines until much later, long after Jesus was said to have died. In fact, it was the witnessing of the Resurrection of Christ that sparked the Apostle Saint James’s conversion. In addition to witnessing two other significant events, this transfiguration is what brought James into the adherence of Christian teachings.
