New Moon In Scorpio: Shake Ups & Obstacles

We are having a New Moon in Scorpio on the night of October 27th in the Americas and on the 28th elsewhere. This is initiating a new 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the coming two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Taurus on November 11th/12th.

Scorpio season began on October 23rd; however, Mercury and Venus have already been there in the weeks prior to this. This New Moon triggers the energies of this sign even more so as it gets imprinted into the Lunar Cycle with its themes.

Scorpio is about depth, transformation, power, regeneration, mastery, extremes, sex, and rebirth. It is complex, passionate, intuitive, calculated, mysterious, penetrating, investigative, controlling, driven, observant, intense, and primal. Psychotherapy, deep healing, or anything that is esoteric can fall under the domain of this sign as it can be about exploring the hidden aspects of life.

Scorpio is also associated with fears, shadows, death, secrets, envy, manipulation, obsessiveness, vengeance, and savagery. Things like shared resources, shared values, investments, inheritance, as well as taxes, debt, and credit all fall under the domain of this sign.

Mercury is slowing down and getting close to beginning its retrograde on October 31st, which will also be in Scorpio. You may have already begun to experience its effects and challenges recently and over the last few weeks. During this next month we can experience insights, adjustments, re-visitations, and re-orientations connected to Scorpio themes. I will be writing a separate article on this, and you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

New Moon Opposite Uranus in Taurus

This New Moon is in a tight opposition to Uranus in Taurus. This could indicate surprises, disruptions, sudden changes, instability, or even anxiety. Considering this combined with Mercury going retrograde, it would be wise to be flexible with your plans.

This energy can also reflect wanting to liberate from a situation, try something new, or take an unusual approach to something. It could also be experienced as rebellious and non-conforming. However, it could make us impulsive and hasty and it would be wise to be cautious when making major decisions.

Considering that this opposition occurs in the Taurus-Scorpio polarity, it could play out around finances/resources, or could be pertaining to personal values versus shared values.  It can also bring something to the surface in some kind of surprising or accidental Uranian way.

Mars Square Saturn, Quincunx Neptune, and Square Pluto

The traditional ruler of Scorpio, Mars, is in Libra while in a tight square with Saturn in Capricorn and a quincunx with Neptune in Pisces. This energy is strongest in the days surrounding the New Moon but can still affect the following weeks.

Our actions may be blocked somehow or we can face obstacles, struggles, or perhaps feel like we are under pressure. We may be confused in how we should be applying ourselves and it could be easier to make mistakes. Some people may feel less motivated, or dissatisfied. Although this energy can be challenging, its best to do things thoroughly and cautiously.

Mars moves towards a square with Pluto in Capricorn, which is exact from November 4th-6th. This can trigger deep and suppressed  feelings. Intensity, power struggles, and conflicts could occur. We may assert ourselves in obsessive or compulsive ways. This can also stimulate strong desires, passion, and sexual energy. It can be good for applying ourselves strategically.

Making Intentions and Things To Consider

What aspects of your life do you need to approach with more depth and realness? Do you need to take a look at the darker aspects of yourself and do the shadow work to help in your healing process? What are your relationships showing you? Are you under pressure or experiencing any type of crisis? If so, do you feel like an area of your life needs to be transformed or mastered?

Do you need to make a big change or liberate yourself from a situation? What are the limitations and blocks in your life pushing you towards? Does something need to be addressed that is connected to finances, taxes, or debt? What’s coming up for you in regards to sexuality?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time; however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment of it will be occurring at 3:38am Universal Time on October 28th.  You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Full Moon In Scorpio: Practical Thinking Versus Intense Feelings

We are having a Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18th which will fall on the 19th for those in the Eastern part of the world. The energies of it are strongest in the days before and after, however, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began on May 4th/5th with a New Moon in Taurus.

This is a ‘Seasonal Blue Moon’ which is when we have 4 Full Moons in one season (instead of 3), with the 3rd one being the Blue Moon. This is the original definition of a Blue Moon with the term first being coined by the Farmer’s Almanac over 100 years ago.

We have been in Taurus season since April 20th and this Full Moon occurs in the last 2.5 days of it before the Sun enters Gemini. Taurus is about practicality, thoroughness, food, beauty, and nature. It enjoys sensual pleasures and is a grounded energy. As a ‘Fixed Earth’ sign, it is like a rock, and is the most invested in the physical/material world in comparison to the rest of the signs. It can also be slow, rigid, and lazy.

This Full Moon is in its opposite sign of Scorpio, triggering a push-pull or integration effect between both of these signs. Scorpio is deep, complex, passionate, intuitive, driven, powerful, calculated, observant, primal, regenerating, transformational, mysterious, intense, desiring, and sexual. It is associated with fears, shadows, death, secrets, and the extremes of Love and Hate. Scorpio energy can also be controlling, obsessive, jealous, aggressive, vengeful, and manipulative.

Both signs are associated with money, resources, values, and worth; with Taurus’ expression of these things being more ‘self-oriented’ and Scorpio being more ‘relationship/shared oriented.’ Scorpio is associated with taxes, debt, credit, investments, inheritance, which all include more then one party to be involved. Both signs also share qualities of being loyal, stubborn, and possessive.

Full Moon Opposite Sun and Mercury Aligned With Algol

This Moon opposes Mercury hours prior to peak of it being Full. We may feel a conflict or a push-pull between our thoughts and feelings, or between our minds and intuition. This can can also manifest in our relations with others in which one person or party is perceiving things mentally and the other emotionally.

The potential intensity of the Scorpio moon can also reflect verbal conflicts with this configuration. Similarly, to the themes of Taurus-Scorpio opposition mentioned above, it’s wise to try to integrate or collaborate between these two sides of the mind and emotional instincts/needs.

The Sun and Mercury are close to the fixed star ‘Algol’ which has some similar themes as the sign of Scorpio such as passion and intensity. The most positive quality of Algol is that it is a highly creative star. It is also associated with rage, hysteria, and the expression of shadows. Throughout history there sometimes has been catastrophes and significant war related developments during major planetary alignments with Algol.

Mercury Superior Conjunction on May 21st

On May 21st Mercury makes its exact conjunction with Sun in what is called the ‘Superior Conjunction’. This is sort of like the peak of the Mercury cycle which has been building up since its last conjunction in March during the previous retrograde.

Mercury will be initiating its next phase in which it travels ahead of the Sun over the next month and a half. We are transitioning into a period where we can have greater clarity regarding certain issues that have been playing out or seeded since March.

In comparison to these last few months, our minds can be more aligned with our true needs and self-expression from May 21st onward. During this next phase, we can better implement our ideas and whatever we have been thinking about with greater confidence and direction. Some people may notice some significant developments during this day or the days surrounding it.

It is occurring right at the beginning of Gemini which could emphasize potential beginnings that it may bring to certain people. It may be connected to both Gemini and Pisces themes such as communication, writing, taking a multifaceted approach, learning, adaptability, creativity, spirituality, empathy, and compassion.

Mars in Cancer is Out Of Bounds, Sextile Uranus, and Square Chiron

Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, has recently entered Cancer and will stay there until July 1st/2nd. Although this isn’t something that we may notice very strongly, Mars in Cancer (in comparison to other signs) can make our actions more fuelled by our emotions and sensitivity. We can be more protective, defensive, less directly assertive and more passive aggressive.

In late April, Mars went ‘Out of Bounds’. This is when a planet travels outside of the boundaries in which it usually orbits from our Earth based perspective. It will stay like that until mid-June. This energy is about doing things differently and taking an unusual approach outside of conventional norms. This is good for exploring new territory and tapping into originality.

Mars is moving towards a sextile with Uranus which is strongest from May 21st-23rd. Although this energy is short term, it has similarities to being ‘Out of Bounds’ and can trigger some of the themes mentioned above. This is great for trying new things. We may want to take an unconventional, innovative, liberating, or technological approach to something. It could be good for making positive changes and in some cases we may experience pleasant surprises.

Mars is also moving towards a square with Chiron which is strongest from May 22nd-24th and overlaps with the energy mentioned above. At best, this can be good for taking action towards healing and personal growth. It can support the Mars-Uranus and ‘Out of Bounds’ influence in helping us to do things in a different way. However, this energy can also trigger issues or wounds connected to anger, aggression, or sexuality.

Venus in Taurus Conjunct Uranus

Venus, the ruler of Taurus, recently entered its home sign of Taurus where it will stay until June 8th/9th. Just like Mars in Cancer, this isn’t something that we will notice strongly. Venus in Taurus (in comparison to other signs) can make us seek pleasure more so around stimulating the senses, material things, luxury, and food/substances. We may value quality and practicality more so than usual.

Venus makes an exact conjunction with Uranus hours before the Full Moon, however it may have even been a bit noticeable in the few days prior. This energy can be exciting, stimulating or surprising either socially or romantically or we may meet people who are interesting and unique.

We may be more drawn to, or participate in, unusual or fun experiences or do something that makes us feel free and liberated. We may want to make aesthetic changes to something and this can even be good for expressing creative energy in new ways.

There may be some surprising developments around money and resources which can be positive or negative. In some cases, there can also be a shift around certain values or how we value something. This energy can also reflect instability, disruption, rebellion, or a sudden change in our relations, financially, and can even happen in other ways not related to Venus.

Things To Consider At This Time

What are your feelings telling you at this time and do they conflict with your mind? How can you integrate deep or complex feelings with practical or rational consideration? Do you need to make any changes around values or finances? What are your true desires?

Do you need to take a different approach or shake things up in your social relationships or love life? Do you feel like you need to take a chance and apply yourself in a new or unconventional way? Is there anything that you can be doing that can potentially help you to feel more liberated? Does anything need to be purged or transformed?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following, when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on the night of May 18th at 9:11pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Mercury Retrograde In Sagittarius: Revising Our Perspectives

Mercury began the latest edition of its retrograde process on November 16th/17th, which will last until December 6th/7th. In the weeks (and especially days) leading up to it we start to notice its influence as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way. This is known as the ‘pre-shadow’ period which began on October 29th.

If you have read my previous Mercury retrograde articles, the first two sections of this article are nearly the same and you can skip to the third section if you don’t want to re-read all the general themes associated with these periods. The other sections are more specific to this edition of it.

Mercury retrograde is known for the problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. Some people even get headaches near the beginning of it. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and commerce, as well as changes, cancellations, or delays in our schedules. We may also feel more challenged when we are doing excessive analytical work without using our internal guidance.

Although there is a higher probability of experiencing more of these problems during this time, they won’t necessarily apply to every situation. Some people may not notice these energies as much, depending on what types of things they are doing and how the astrology is playing out unique to the person’s astrological blueprint.

Mercury Retrograde can also be a good time to revisit or redo tasks, projects, ideas, or anything else that was initiated in the past. It can give us a different perspective or shift in thinking that can help us to approach these things in ways we wouldn’t have done so before. This may also be a period of reconnecting with old friends, family, sometimes lovers, or others you haven’t seen in a while.

The Deeper Purpose of Mercury Retrograde

Ultimately, Mercury Retrograde is a time for us to recalibrate and adjust specific areas of our lives as well as how we apply our minds towards these issues. It is a period in which we may receive important insights and see things in a new light. In most cases, it can be mildly transformational, but in some cases it can facilitate more major transformations depending on how it corresponds to your personal astrological chart.

During and following the retrograde, certain areas of our lives can go through changes or shifts, or we can experience a reorientation of some sort which influences how we proceed over the coming months or in some cases, it can have a more long-term significance. In the 2 weeks afterwards, known as the ‘post-shadow’ period, we move forward with some sort of new awareness, adjustment, as well as new ideas and thoughts that have been seeded which will develop as time progresses.

The things that you have been doing or circumstances in the two to three weeks leading up to this period could determine how and where this energy plays out. It is also possible that there could have been changes put in place at that time which may go through a sorting out process. There could have been unknown variables, both positive and negative, that were either unseen or hadn’t been conceived yet, which may become apparent over the coming weeks.

The sign(s) and element(s) in which Mercury retrograde travels shows the energy we are re-orienting ourselves with. More importantly, if you are more familiar with your natal astrology chart, your house(s) or any planetary placements being affected will show more specifically what areas of life you will be experiencing its energy in. For the astrologically literate, it began at 13’30 degrees of Leo and will retrograde all the way to 27’17 degrees of the Scorpio, before turning forward again.

This One Is Occurring Mostly In Sagittarius, Part of A Series In Fire Signs

Mercury retrograde always happens in primarily one element for more than a year. It is currently occurring in the Fire element which is about passion, creativity, instinct, inspiration, assertiveness, courage, confidence, and spirit. It also ends in the Water sign of Scorpio leading to the transition into Water signs which kicks off more so at the next Mercury retrograde in Pisces.

This Fire period is about re-aligning ourselves with these themes and expressing them in new or revamped ways. This ‘Fire process’ began in the spring of 2017 as it was transitioning out of Earth signs, with the first Mercury Retrograde to be completely in Fire occurring last December.

This one is more specific to a reorientation around Sagittarius themes, which is about beliefs, opinions, perspectives, teaching, hope, optimism, exploration, travel, and higher education. It is visionary and ‘big picture’ oriented. Sagittarius is also associated with marketing, sales, publishing, and media. It is idealistic, philosophical, and expansive. Expressed negatively, Sagittarius energy can also be judgemental, excessive, blunt, egotistical, argumentative, preachy,  too scattered, and have a ‘know-it-all’ complex.

Mercury Retrograde Begins With a Square To Neptune

Mercury in Sagittarius begins its retrograde in a square with Neptune in Pisces which it will return to at the end of the post-shadow period. The combination can make it a little difficult to focus and deal with details and facts. However, it can stimulate abstract thought and help us to perceive things symbolically.

An evolutionary theme of this retrograde for many people could be about the reworking of how we apply Mercury and Neptune energies together. Mercury rules communication, the mind, commuting, communication technology, and how we process information. Neptune is associated with creativity, imagination, visual or musical arts, selflessness, oneness, compassion, idealism, dreams, spirituality, and mysticism.

Negative expressions of this energy that may come up that we need to work on could be connected to deception, addictions, escapism, illusions, flakiness, delusion, confusion, and lack of boundaries. Then you can also factor in the Sagittarian themes mentioned above.

Jupiter Recently Entered Sagittarius, Venus Finished Retrograde

The ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, has returned to its own sign on November 8th where it will stay until December 2019. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, rules the same things associated with Sagittarius and therefore this combined with the current Mercury retrograde really amplifies the Sagittarian themes mentioned earlier in the article.

Mercury will be aligned with Jupiter on its retrograde path which indicates that certain things that play out over the next month will help to set the stage for what Jupiter will bring into our lives over the next year. This month can be a period of tremendous learning, and perhaps even revamping certain perspectives, and how to incorporate the ‘big picture’ in how we proceed following the retrograde.

Venus ended its retrograde less than half a day prior to Mercury going retrograde. For many people, the Venus related developments, issues, or reorientations that have come up in recent weeks might be connected to any adjustments Mercury will be facilitating.

Venus will be in its post-retrograde shadow period until mid-December which will be 11 days after Mercury ends its retrograde. As time progresses over the next month, there will be more forward momentum around Venus-ruled areas of relationships (romantically and socially), values, money, pleasures, or perhaps something to do with aesthetics.

Mercury Retrograde Timeline

*Below, are some of the dates and information for some of the major astrological configurations during this retrograde. However, I also regularly post about other astro energies happening on my social media via Instagram and Facebook, you can follow on those platforms for more forecast content.

Earlier dates are for those in the Western part of the world and later dates for those in the East.

Nov 16th/17thMercury begins its retrograde at 1:33 am Universal Time. The days surrounding this period are a time in which complications may be amplified, but you may also start to get a better sense of what these retrograde themes mean for you.

Nov 22nd/23rdFull Moon In Gemini. We may feel that we are being pulled in many directions and can get easily scattered and restless. There is a possibility of a clash, conflict, or competitiveness around of ideas and viewpoints. I will be doing a separate article on this Full Moon, join my mailing list here to be notified when it gets released.

Nov 25th-28th Mercury’s Inferior Conjunction, Mercury square Mars, Mercury/Sun Conjunct Jupiter, and Mars Sextile Saturn. This is that halfway point of Mercury retrograde and can be a period of increased insights yet complications can also be stronger at this time depending on how you are applying yourself. Ideas and thoughts that are seeded now may develop over the coming months. This can also be a period where we are more irritable, impulsive, and perhaps have some conflict in some cases. However this can also be a highly productive period if Mercury retrograde complications do not get in the way. This can be a very mind opening period, perhaps lucky and expansive. Considering the ‘big picture’ is a strong theme now.

Nov 30th – Dec 2nd Venus opposite Uranus, Mercury enters Scorpio while semi-sextile Venus, Mercury quincunx Uranus. Changes, disruptions, or surprises may come up at this time which may require some adjustments. This may affect relationships or financial matters, however, there is also a possibility of some exciting energy as well. Mercury shifting into Scorpio can help us think deeper or in an investigative way. Hidden matters connected to the past may come up.

Dec 3rd/4th – Mercury Trine Chiron and Lunar Nodes. There is a possibility for growth and healing at this time. There can be communications, connections or developments made which can benefit our future. Greater awareness of strengths and weaknesses can be beneficial for where we are headed.

Dec 6th/7th – Mercury Goes Direct in Late Scorpio with New Moon 10 hours later, Mars Conjunct Neptune. Mercury ends its retrograde and will slowly begin to move forward over the coming days. The areas of our lives that have been affected by this retrograde will start to become more clear and things will fall into place more easily. There will be a New Moon shortly afterwards which will help to kickstart new developments due to what has transpired.

Venus Retrograde In Scorpio & Libra: Adjustments Around Relationships & Values

Venus is retrograde from October 5th until November 16th. It has been building up since September 2nd, when Venus entered what is called the “pre-shadow” period. When a planet goes retrograde, our perspective here on Earth makes it appear to be going backwards in the sky.

Unlike Mercury Retrograde, Venus Retrogrades occur less frequently, every 19 months, but they last about twice as long. Although both retrogrades have some similarities in regards to how they might affect your social life, Venus still presents a much different vibe.

Retrogrades are a time to revisit, reflect on, and make adjustments to things represented by that planet. Venus rules over love, intimate relationships, friendships, values, money, beauty, and overall attractability. It is associated with our passions, creativity, pleasures, and tastes.

Venus begins its retrograde in a square with Mars which has also recently been retrograde. Therefore, much of the Mars related shifts that occurred throughout the summer and up until early October has set the stage for this Venus’ retrograde.

These recent months have been a time of re-orientation of how we assert and apply ourselves.

In some cases this previous Mars retrograde could have been connected to shifts around how we apply aggression, sexuality, and desires. There could have also been surprises, sudden changes, disruptions, or taking action towards some sort of freedom or liberating from a situation.

Intimate and Social Relationships

For many couples, though not all, it can be a challenging time. Whether challenging or not, however, Venus retrograde can deepen or shift the way love and/or pleasure are expressed between partners. Any new relationships — those shorter than 18 months — may be tested during this period, as it will be the first one experienced as a couple.

Any new developments or perspectives around relationships that have occurred since September 2nd may end up playing out quite differently than expected over the next few months. Consider this an important step in the evolution of your relationship(s). If all is well, it will ultimately be strengthened.

Friendships could be affected in this way as well, minus the intimacy. This could also be a time when people reconnect with friends (or lovers) of the past to further evolve the relationship. It could bring some sort of closure and/or new developments.

New or reacquainted relationships that form during Venus retrogrades can play an important role in evolving how we apply ourselves in relationships into the future. However, for anyone who does enter a new relationship at this time, it would be good to wait until after the retrograde is over before going ‘all in’. At that point, things will then become more clear on how to proceed with matters of love. In some cases a relationship can get more serious or developed in the post retrograde period while in other cases it could come to an end.

Money, Values, Beauty, and Material Things

Depending on what area of your natal chart it is occurring in, and while considering other factors, Venus retrograde could create a shift in what we value and/or how we are valued and what we are attracted to. For some people, there could also be a shift in financial matters that may have begun developing or played out sometime since early September. If so, be mindful of the fact that things could still change over the next few months.

It would also be a good idea to be cautious when doing anything new that involves beauty, decorating, or buying any items related to fashion. There is a greater possibility that eventually you may not be happy with these kinds of choices that you make. However, Venus retrograde can be good for renovations in many cases, especially after October 31st when it returns to Libra.

This Retrograde Starts in Scorpio and Travels Back to Libra

Venus begins its retrograde in Scorpio, and it has been in that sign since September 9th. Developments around financial matters, shared resources, or credit  may have come up since then and can continue to play out. This retrograde could also have to do with a re-orientation of how we spend finances towards fun and pleasurable pursuits.

Scorpio is a passionate, intense, transformative, and primal energy. It can be very calculated and cautious, but once it wants something, it is ‘all in’. As a result,  it can also be possessive, jealous, fearful, controlling, manipulative, and obsessive. Therefore matters of love and romance could be flavoured with those themes.

Venus re-enters its own sign of Libra on October 31st and will end its retrograde there. Because it rules this sign, it amplifies some of the Venus themes already mentioned. In this sign, it could facilitate a re-orientation of how we seek harmony and balance in our love lives, socially, or even financially. Adjustments connected to beauty, style, or anything aesthetic could occur. A shift in our creativity could also occur during this period.

Venus ends its retrograde close to the star Spica, which is traditionally the most fortunate and lucky star. In the week before and after the retrograde, we may notice its energy the most. Depending on how it is interacting with your natal astrology chart, this period can be highly beneficial socially, romantically, financially, creatively, or aesthetically.

Journey of Venus Retrograde – Timeline

*Below, are some of the dates and information about Venus’ aspects othe major astrological configurations during this retrograde. However, I also usually post about other astro energies happening on my social media via Instagram and Facebook, you can follow those platforms for more forecast content.

Earlier dates are for those in Western part of the world and later dates for those in the East.

October 5th/6th Venus retrograde begins at 7:05pm Universal Time.

The days surrounding this period could be a time in which some of the themes mentioned above could become more apparent. In some cases, their could be some sort of development that will play a significant role in how this retrograde plays out for you.

October 10th/11th Venus square Mars.

This can be a passionate time in relationships, however, it can also stimulate tension, conflict, and intensity either in our love lives or socially. Perhaps some developments connected to sexuality may come up. This can also be a period of impulsively or aggressively spending money or seeking pleasures. This energy can also be competitive. Taking action towards anything to do with aesthetics or creativity could occur as well. This energy can start to become noticeable when the retrograde begins, however, it peaks at this period.

October 15th/16th Venus conjunct Mercury.

This can be a good time for anything social. Perhaps connecting with old friends, associates, or lovers could occur. We may put extra mental focus towards Venus ruled areas or perhaps learn something that we were unaware of before. Financial transactions connected to the past may also occur.

October 23rd – 25th  Full Moon in Taurus aligned with Uranus, aspecting Venus, Saturn, and square the Lunar Nodes.

Uranus involved can indicate a period of surprises, changes, new experiences, and even excitement in some cases. Regardless of whatever shift that Uranus could bring, Venus and the Full Moon are also in a harmonious aspect with Saturn, which can still add themes around stability, realism, responsibilities, and commitments around relationships, friendships, values, finances, or anything to do with aesthetics or creativity. This period can be karmic and/or evolutionary, however we can also potentially feel pulled in different directions, and/or between the past and future. The energies of this Full Moon builds up in the weeks prior and also has a strong influence over the following few weeks, especially when some of this gets triggered again around October 30th-31st.

(I will be writing more about this Full Moon in separate article, you can join my mailing list here to be notified when it is published.)

October 25th – 27th  Venus conjunct the Sun (Inferior Conjunction).  

This is a seeding period for areas of life ruled by Venus. Whatever is seeded at this time will build up towards a culmination that will occur in the summer of 2019. This exact alignment occurs at this time, however, the seeding energy can actually last from Oct 20th-31st. This can be a period of significant happenings, however, it is possible that whatever occurs may not seem so until later, perhaps even a few months after the retrograde ends.

October 30th-31st Venus opposite Uranus in Grand Cross with the Lunar Nodes, Venus semi-sextile Mercury.

This triggers some of the same energies of the previous Full Moon mentioned already mentioned. However, this period can be a bit more disruptive or surprising when it comes to Venus matters, and could require adjustments. Like the previous Full Moon, this period can be karmic and/or evolutionary, however, we can also feel pulled in different directions, and/or between the past and future. This can be good for some sort of clarification or communication around Venus matters.

October 31st/Nov 1st Venus retrograde enters Libra.

Venus returns home to its own sign, which can bring more harmony to Venus matters compared to earlier part of the retrograde. However, it is still retrograde and in close aspect to Uranus and the Lunar Nodes as mentioned, so it can still be a bit shaky for some people.

November 2nd – 4th Venus semisextile Jupiter and quincunx Chiron, with Jupiter Trine Chiron.

This can be a period of growth around Venus matters, however, it can also be a time where we need to make adjustments due to wounds and blockages around Venus issues. Jupiter is in a trine with Chiron this week which can be great for healing, learning, and having a greater awareness of our blockages and/or gifts.

November 6th – 8th Uranus square the Nodes while they all change signs. Jupiter enters Sagittarius. 

The Lunar Nodes are going into the Cancer/Capricorn axis and will stay there over the following 18 months. This is beginning a process of changes of how we work with energies of these signs, pushing us towards being more caring, nurturing, and connecting emotionally with loved ones. Uranus changing signs could reflect changes, disruptions, surprises, and perhaps revisiting a theme connected to authentic individuality which has been playing out since 2011. Jupiter enters its own sign of Sagittarius where it will be until December of 2019. This is the beginning of a year long process that could be very expansive around our beliefs, perspectives, and could provide a lot of learning through our experiences, education, and travel. You may have already started noticing these energies beginning to play out sometime during the months prior to this date.

November 8th/9th  Venus trine Mars.

This energy can make us more active socially, romantically, and creatively. This can also stimulate sexual attraction.

November 10th/11th Venus semi-square Mercury.

This can be a more social time. Communication and mental activity around Venus issues could also be theme.  However, it is possible that there can be some difficulties or tension in these ways as well.

November 16th Venus Retrograde Ends Conjunct Spica, Mercury goes retrograde.

Venus comes to a stop and slowly begins to move forward while being blessed by a very fortunate star, Spica. Over the coming weeks and months, the chips will fall into place more clearly as a result of any adjustments or seeds planted during this retrograde period. However, Mercury also begins its retrograde period which is occurring in Sagittarius and Scorpio. This indicates another reorientation in our lives that could be somehow connected to what has occurred during the Venus retrograde.

Mars Retrograde 2018: Revising How We Take Action

The planet Mars is going retrograde on June 26th and will last until August 27th. This is something that occurs every two years, with the last one occurring in 2016 from mid-April until late June. This energy started building up when the pre-shadow began in mid-May as Mars started slowing down. Some of the themes of this retrograde may have begun sometime since then.

Retrograde periods are when a planet appears to be moving backwards in the sky due to its position around the Sun relative to Earth’s position. It is a period of re-working how we orientate ourselves with the themes and energies of that specific planet. The most significant retrogrades are those of Mercury, Venus, and Mars.

Mars: Assertion, Willpower, Courage, Desires, Sex, Aggression, and Anger

Mars is a yang/male planet that is associated with how we apply action in our lives. When retrograde, its energies get amplified as it ends up being opposite the Sun and appears at its brightest when looking at the night sky. This is like the ‘Full Moon’ for Mars as it receives the most light from the Sun.

During this retrograde, Mars themes will be highlighted very strongly which ultimately help to facilitate some sort of adjustment. This could influence where to best apply our efforts, how we use our willpower, our motivations, our desires, a shift in our sex lives, and how we deal with aggression and anger. When a planet goes retrograde, the circumstances that manifest help us to ultimately express the energies of this planet in a new way.

Due to its energies being amped in retrograde motion, this can also be a time where many people can get more easily angered or irritated. This can be potentially the most negative manifestation of this period. People who have strong Mars energy or many of those who are dominant Aries or Scorpio may notice these effects the most.

There can be a build-up of inner tension which eventually can be expressed outwardly, sometimes in a passive-aggressive way.  If this applies to you, it would be wise to find a healthy way to release anger and ease tension in a way that is not harmful to you or the people in your life.

Any frustrations that occur at this time could be as a result of things not flowing smoothly and wasted efforts. If this occurs to you, it would be good to consider that something needs to change with the way you are applying yourself and pay attention to signs from the Universe.

Usually, this occurs when taking new initiatives, but not in every case. If so, it may be better to revisit old tasks, projects, and efforts and you may find that doing this can be more productive. However, this will not make you immune to all of its effects which ultimately should help you in your personal development.

As Mars is also associated with sex, sometimes what happens is that a shift in our sex lives could occur. In some cases, there can be a change in a relationship or even a friendship. For example, some people may begin a sexual relationship with someone who they are already acquainted or friends with. In other cases, the opposite may occur. However, this won’t apply to everybody and everyone will experience this retrograde in different ways in which many are expressed throughout this article.

Mars Retrograde In Aquarius and Capricorn

The majority of this retrograde will occur in Aquarius with it ending in Capricorn where it will move forward again. Its themes may be oriented around the collective, groups, colleagues, friends, as well as humanitarian and social issues. It may even be connected to how we assert ourselves with our intellect or how we apply our innovative selves.

Mars will then return to Capricorn on August 12th/13th where Pluto and Saturn are currently located. This can bring in themes of re-orientation connected to our goals, ambitions, careers, responsibilities, and perhaps apply ourselves with better structure, resourcefulness, and in a more solid way.

Mars Conjunct South Node and Out Of Bounds

In the weeks leading up to this period, Mars has been travelling near the South Node of the Moon and will also pass over it again during the retrograde. The South Node is associated with the past and could be connected to what can be holding us back. It is even considered to be a place where energy can dissipate. This could be about letting go of old approaches of how we use our Mars energy, but in this process, themes connected to the past may resurface during this time to help us make the changes.

On July 7th/8th, Mars will be going ‘out of bounds’ and will stay like that until September 24th which is almost a month after the retrograde ends. At that time, we will still be in the post-retrograde shadow period (until October 8th) which is when things related to Mars begin to move forward more smoothly.

A planet is ‘out of bounds’ when it travels beyond the limits in which the Sun travels in from our vantage point on Earth. This is generally a time when that planet expresses itself in unusual, unique, independent, unconventional, innovative, and even creative ways. It is sort of like it is exploring new territory beyond the normal constructs of society or how it usually expresses itself.

Mars Square Uranus, Eclipses, and Mercury Retrograde

A major factor of this Mars retrograde is that it will be in a square with Uranus which will be strongest during the last week of July and the first week of August. Uranus has similar energy to a planet being ‘out of bounds’ so therefore this aspect emphasizes what was mentioned above. This configuration can also trigger rebelliousness, impulsive actions, disruptions, sudden changes, and perhaps a need to break free out of inhibiting situations.

Circumstances that can come up can make it even harder to focus and direct our energy, and therefore it is best to be adaptable and to surrender that what isn’t working. However, it would be wise to be cautious about taking impulsive action in case you may do something you may regret. It would be wise to think things over and reflect when triggered. Mercury will also be going retrograde at that time so we may easily not see things clearly.

This entire Mars retrograde period will also be occurring while three eclipses take place. We will have partial Solar Eclipses taking place on July 12th/13th in Cancer and on August 11th/12th in Leo. However, the most potent one, which is also strongly connected to Mars retrograde, will be a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on July 27th/28th.

The Lunar Eclipse will be aligned with Mars while it is in a square with Uranus which can carry some of the Mars/Uranus themes mentioned above over the following months even after the retrograde is over. Eclipses in general trigger changes which ultimately depends on how it is interacting with your natal astrology chart (personal astrological blueprint) based on your exact birth time. These themes of change are strongest in the month of each eclipse, however, they still can unfold over the following 3-6 months.

Due to the fact that the eclipse in late July is a Total Lunar Eclipse near the South Node, combined with the Mars/Uranus configuration, this really emphasizes the fact that this is a period of really letting go of certain aspects of our lives that are not serving us. Perhaps any wasted or challenging efforts we experience as a result of Mars retrograde may help to show us this. This Lunar Eclipse, also referred to as a ‘Blood Moon’, will be the longest Lunar Eclipse of the 21st century, lasting just over four hours.

I will be releasing more content about these Eclipses and Mercury retrograde as we get closer to those dates. You can join my mailing list here to ensure that you are notified when I release my latest content.

What To Reflect On During This Mars Retrograde?

Are you asserting yourself appropriately in your life? What are you being shown by the Universe? How is the outside world responding to the way you take action? How do you feel inside? What adjustments do you need to make in order to proceed more effectively with your goals and aspirations? Which of your past decisions, ideas, or initiatives should you revisit and experiment with? What do you need to bring to an end? How can you express yourself in ways that are unique, creative, and unconventional? What are your true inner desires?

These are some examples of what to reflect on during this time. The retrograde ends on August 27th. From that point on until early October, many of the challenges of this summer will dissipate and most (or all) of the areas that were triggered during this period should move forward more smoothly with increased clarity. Any changes that have occurred will help to facilitate a better way for us to express ourselves.

Full Moon In Scorpio: Proceeding With Determination

We are having a Full Moon in Scorpio on April 29th/30th depending on where you are located, however, the Moon will appear fullest on the night of the 29th around the world. This marks the peak of the Moon cycle that began on March 31st.

We have been in Taurus season since April 19th/20th and it will last until May 20th/21st. This sign is about practicality, manifestation, thoroughness, food, and nature. It enjoys sensual pleasures and is a grounded energy. As a ‘Fixed Earth’ sign, Taurus is the most invested in the physical/material world in comparison to the rest of the signs. It can also be slow, stubborn, and lazy.

This Full Moon is in its opposite sign of Scorpio, triggering a push-pull or integration effect between both of these signs. Scorpio is deep, complex, transformational, passionate, calculated, sexual, and intense. It is associated with fears, death, secrets, desires, and power. Scorpio can also be controlling and manipulative.

Both signs are associated with money, values, and worth; with Taurus’ expression of these things being more ‘self-oriented’ and Scorpio being more ‘relationship/shared oriented.’ Scorpio is associated with taxes, debt, credit, investments, inheritance, which all include more then one party to be involved.

Taurus and Scorpio are each possessive in their own way. Taurus can be possessive with mostly physical things and food, but can also be possessive with loved ones. On the other hand, Scorpio can be more extremely possessive with those they love. Taurus likes to hold on to and accumulate things, while Scorpio is more about purging and release. Taurus is also associated with food while Scorpio is about releasing the waste from what we eat.

In the days before and after this Full Moon, and more subtly in the week or two following, we can expect to experience the polarity of these two signs playing out in our lives in some capacity. The key here is consideration and potentially integration of both sides.

Full Moon Sextile Saturn, Trine Neptune, and Conjunct Jupiter

Scorpio Full Moon’s can sometimes be more intense, however, this particular one has some nice aspects which helps to harmonize it. Firstly, it is in a tight sextile with Saturn in Capricorn which has recently went retrograde. Much of what comes up at this time can be beneficial for commitments, long term goals, responsibilities, and it can bring a stabilizing energy and realistic consideration.

The Full Moon is in a wider trine aspect with Neptune in Pisces which can be beneficial for our inspiration, spirituality, healing, creativity, charitable acts, and can help us to be more intuitively tuned in. Some of this energy will resurface around May 5th/6th. This combined with Saturn can help to make dreams a reality. The Moon is also moving towards a conjunction with Jupiter in the same sign. This is good for any kind of growth, expansion, and exploration.

Mercury Ending Its Post-Shadow Period, Uranus About To Change Signs

Mercury’s recent retrograde ended at the last New Moon on April 15th/16th, however, it has still been in its post-shadow retrograde period since then and until May 3rd. This is when it travels forward again in the same area where the retrograde occurred.

During these weeks, some of the issues and themes that first came up during (or just prior) to the retrograde (which was March 22nd – April 16th) become more increasingly clear as time progresses. We are able to proceed forward and make better decisions as the Universe helps to show us what our next steps are as a result of the signs, synchronicities, circumstances, and our feelings.

Uranus is at the very end of Aries over the next few weeks as it prepares to enter Taurus at the next New Moon on May 15th. During this period, before and after it changes signs, many people will experience significant changes. It could be about finishing something that has been in place for years, and can also be about doing something completely new.

Uranus can also bring unexpected events, disruptions, and even separations of some sort. It can also manifest as some sort of liberation, rebellion, and pursuing some sort of new experience. I will be writing more about this in my next article and might also create other content about it. You can join my mailing list here to be notified when published.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you tackle your responsibilities and commitments in a way that is harmonious with your flow? How do you need to apply effort to help you fulfill your dreams or desires for growth, expansion, and exploration? What can you do or change to assist your personal financial situation and/or in regard to financial obligations with others? What do you need to purge or transform?

What are your long term considerations of how you want to build your life? What have you gained more clarity on recently and over the last few weeks? What have you been feeling in relation to how to proceed forward? What do you need to finish or release in order to open yourself up to new experiences?

These are just some examples but other variations of this energy may come up. During the Full Moon in Scorpio and in the two weeks following, it is a good time to do any sort of cleansing of the colon. This can be done through colon hydrotherapy, enemas, and/or with the use of herbs and supplements.

If you wish to do any sort of intentional release from something in your life, it is best to do so anytime after the Moon starts to wane following the exact moment of the Full Moon. The waning Moon lasts for two weeks following this period until the next New Moon. The exact moment of this Full Moon is at 12:58am Universal Time on the night of the 29th and morning of the 30th. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Full Moon In Taurus: Finding Simplicity In The Midst Of Complexity

We will enter the Full Moon phase of the lunar cycle on November 4th at 5:23am Universal Time. For those in the Western hemisphere, it will appear fullest on the night of November 3rd. During Full Moons, we experience a push-pull between two opposite signs, with the Moon sign tending to exert greater force. In this case, the Moon is in Taurus and the Sun is in Scorpio.

We have been in Scorpio season since October 23rd, with Mercury and Jupiter also in place, both of which have amplified Scorpio’s energies, which are deep, transformative, intense, sexual, investigative, revealing, suspicious, mysterious, and sometimes fearful. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, learning, growth, faith, belief, and truth, is helping to highlight the positive aspects of Scorpio energies.

This could be an easier time to overcome fears, our perspectives can be enriched by profound discoveries, or we can grow in our understanding and expression of sexual intimacy and bonding. These are just some examples, but there are lots of other ways these energies are playing out as well.

The Full Moon occurring in the opposite sign of Taurus brings its energies to the mix, and they can work harmoniously with or oppose one another. The Moon is “exalted” in here, expressing itself with emotional stability and personal fulfillment. It can bring themes of comfort, sensuality, beauty, material pleasures, practicality, and peacefulness. It is about personal values and resources, while Scorpio is about shared values and resources. Taurus, on the other hand, seeks simplicity over complexity.

Full Moon in Aspect With Neptune and Pluto, Venus Opposite Uranus

This Full Moon is in a harmonious sextile with Neptune in Pisces, a combination that can flavour this period with serenity, spirituality, creativity, and flow. It contributes to both the easygoing nature of Taurus and also the mysterious side of Scorpio. Pluto in a wide trine with this Full Moon can be empowering, and can also accentuate some of the Scorpio themes. These aspects help to ease any potential challenges that can arise during Full Moons.

Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is in Libra while in a tight opposition with Uranus. This is touching on some of the themes shown in the previous New Moon. Uranus could bring changes, surprises, disruptions, insights, excitement, and in some cases, losses in our relationships. Other Venus-ruled areas such as aesthetics, money, pleasures, creativity, and social life may also experience these energies in some way.

However, the potential of any challenging manifestations of this opposition is minimized by the harmonious aspects of the Full Moon itself.

Saturn Finishing Its Exact Trine to Uranus and Square to Chiron

Saturn has been in a trine (by sign) with Uranus for almost three years and will continue over the next three years as they both transition into the next signs. However, since last December and through until later this month, this aspect has been exact/direct and therefore amping up its energy. Uranus in Aries can bring innovations, breakthroughs, renovations, independence, technological upgrades, and personal freedom to Saturnian themes of career, structure, commitments, and efforts. In Sagittarius, this may relate to learning, marketing, publishing, teaching, travelling, or anything involving national or international pursuits and interests.

Saturn has also been in a tough square with Chiron during this same period with Uranus still involved through a minor aspect. This energy may have brought a restrictive, realistic, or perhaps even disciplinary and constructive energy toward dealing with any blockages, wounds, or negative patterns preventing us from expressing ourselves at a higher potential. These could be minor for some people and deeply rooted for others. If deeply rooted, Jupiter in Scorpio can help to empower and transform some of the things holding us back and Uranus in a semi-sextile to Chiron can provide a liberating effect.

Things to Consider During This Period

What are your personal values and how much of them are being supported in your relationships? What can you do to bring more zen into your personal life or home to help offset the intensity and complexity of the external world? What opportunities, modalities, or applications have presented themselves to help you move beyond your personal blockages, wounds, emotional patterns, or attachments? What upgrades can you be making to your work, responsibilities, and structures?

These are just a few examples of things to consider during this period. Full Moons and the waning period following them can be a good time to initiate any sort of intentional releasing. If you wish to use this period in this way, the best time to do so is anytime after the exact time of the Full Moon, when it starts to wane. This Full Moon will be occurring at 5:23am Universal Time on November 4th, and you can click here to find out when that is in your time zone.

Full Moon In Scorpio: Acting On Our Passions and Desires

We are having a Full Moon in Scorpio on May 10th or 11th, depending on your location. Full Moons are the climax of the Moon cycle, and its energies become noticeable in the days leading up to it and also strongly influence how the proceeding two weeks, until the next New Moon, play out.

Mercury finished its retrograde on May 3rd/4th and we are now moving forward based on realizations and developments that have transpired over the previous month. Venus will be finishing up its post-retrograde phase on May 18th. For some people this upcoming week (until the 18th) will play host to any remaining Venus-themed conclusions that need to occur in relation to what has been playing out since February. This could be connected to our relationships, love, money, values, beauty, and worth.

Full Moon in Scorpio Opposing Sun in Taurus, in Harmonious Aspect With Pluto

As the Sun has been travelling through Taurus over the past 20 days, it will be opposed by the Moon in Scorpio during this Full Moon. During this period we can expect a challenging pull and/or dynamic integration of these two energies.

Taurus is practical, thorough, and direct. Being ruled by Venus, it is about beauty, sensual pleasures, food, personal values, self-worth, and money/possessions. Taurus can also be lazy, slow, greedy, and overindulging, however.

Scorpio is complex, deep, real, and raw. Being traditionally ruled by Mars, it is assertive, intense, sexual, and passionate. Scorpio is more concerned about merging with another, whether sexually, resourcefully, or collaboratively. Being sub-ruled by Pluto, it is a powerful and mysterious energy associated with transformation, purging, death and rebirth. In the negative, Scorpio energy can be controlling, manipulative, overly suspicious, and jealous.

This Full Moon is separating from a harmonious sextile aspect with Pluto. This can help us to tap into our power better, whether it is individually, in a relationship, or in a group effort. It can help mend any challenging oppositional energy between Taurus-Scorpio and can assist us in accomplishing goals, getting to the bottom of things, and creating positive change, and could even represent resources available to help us. This energy is strongest on the day of and hours leading up to the Full Moon.

Mars in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces and Trine Jupiter in Libra

Scorpio-ruler Mars is in Gemini while moving toward a challenging square with Neptune and a supportive trine to Jupiter. We may be applying ourselves in a variety of ways and some of us could even feel scattered.

Neptune here can manifest as some confusion and perhaps even wasted effort. For some people it can be a feeling of swimming upstream or trying get out of quicksand. There can be unusual or flaky circumstances that can thwart us in some ways.  However, this energy can also help us to assert ourselves in better alignment with our intuition.

Although Neptune can be problematic, Mars in a supportive trine aspect with Jupiter in Libra is great for expanding our efforts, which for many people could be related to projects, partnerships, creativity, learning/teaching, travel, or publishing. These energies are strongest from May 10th-12th.

Mercury in a Fire Grand Trine Involving the North Node now in Leo

Mercury in Aries has been aligned with Uranus since April 27th, and since then, from our perspective on Earth, has been nearly stationary. Since its first conjunction on April 27th while retrograde, there could have been some changes, surprises, insights, losses, or even separations. This energy was strongest around April 27th/28th and also in a more positive way on May 9th/10th during the Full Moon.

Mercury is now moving forward, applying a ‘fire’ grand trine with Saturn and the North Node while still finishing a conjunction with Uranus. This is a time to move forward in new ways, which can be innovative, exciting, liberating, or perhaps give a sense of independence or freedom. This can be about building something in our life and working toward our goals and passions.

The Lunar Nodes (North Node and South Node) just recently entered the Leo/Aquarius axis and will be there for about 18 months. These are the points in the sky where the paths of the Sun and the Moon meet. Eclipses always happen when there are New Moons and Full Moons either at or near these points. When considering the positioning of the Nodes in the sky, the North Node represents what we currently need to work toward to help us in our evolution and the South Node is what we need to move beyond from and what could be holding us back.

We are in an evolutionary push toward the positive Leo qualities, which are about creative and authentic self-expression, being heart-centred, having courage, displaying leadership, and tapping into what makes us great as individuals. The universe may also call on us to move away from qualities of Aquarius that can be holding us back. For example, this can be when we are too caught up in doing things collectively, either as a team or in alignment with a collective ideology at the expense of doing what feels right for us and our passions. Teamwork can still be fruitful, but only so long as individuals get to shine and lead at what they enjoy and are good at.

Things to Consider During This Period

This is a time where our lives can generally be moving along with a better flow than in the previous month and you can now move forward with greater confidence toward your goals and projects. Embrace and adapt to any recent developments that have occurred in the previous weeks by taking a new approach and employing a different way of thinking.

Scorpio Full Moons can be a great time to do some purging and letting go of possessions or clutter — great for spring cleaning! If you are cleansing your body or if you are a full-time health enthusiast, these next few weeks can be a good time to emphasize cleansing the colon. This can be done best by combining supplements/herbs with enemas.

astrology, astrology readings, carmen di luccioIf you decide to start any cleansing, purging, or releasing, it is always best to start when the Moon is waning. This is anytime between the peak of the Full Moon and next New Moon on May 25th. This Full Moon will peak at its totality exactly at 9:42pm Universal Time on May 10th. You can click here to find out what that is for your time zone.
