For the trick or treat this week, we have Venus and Uranus, both retrograde and in opposition. Because we are in Scorpio, you won’t need to contemplate what these aspects could look like… it will surface all on its own if need be. Just see what/if something comes up,and stay aware to adjust and change as you go.
Monday Oct 29th: Mercury in Scorpio conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio
Your mind and thought forms are expanded with optimism and enthusiasm. You are very broad minded and view the bigger picture with clarity. Intuition is high during this time and double loaded with Plutonian energy to view the ‘other side’. Don’t ignore or close the door if something should come to light that isn’t pleasant… know that this is actually a gift for transformation.
Wednesday Oct 31st: Mercury moves into Sagittarius, Venus Rx in Scorpio is in opposition to Uranus Rx in Taurus, Venus moves into Libra
Mercury (and the aspects to it) while in Sagittarius will go out into all areas of your life, kind of like getting double your money’s worth.
Venus/Uranus opposition with both planets in retrograde means this is a chance for a do-over at a higher level. This most likely will involve a close relationship, but it could also be about what we love and value in our life. This one is all about change with excitement. Having a more playful attitude going into this aspect will help it evolve without the resistance. Venus is in last degrees of Scorpio and moving into Libra, so this is about letting go and allowing Uranus to redo, reorganize, revitalize etc.
While Venus is in Libra, the aspects to it will be about bringing balance and harmony to what we love and value in our lives.
This past Monday, I realized that a houseplant that I have enjoyed for several years needed to be pruned. It is always hard for me to cut away uch lush growth, but I have learned that if I wait too long, the new growth underneath becomes deformed and the plant takes a long time to recover. The bundle in my arms that I took away had big lush leaves and the plant that was left had smaller, paler leaves and looked thin and misshapen. I wish I had taken a before and after picture! In just a few days, the new growth has perked up and already filled in where the old stalks were removed. For the first time enjoying this plant in my home, I did not wait too long. This is Scorpio: getting rid of the old and making room for the new… and for once I had perfect timing. It will still be hard the next time to pick up those shears and prune away such lush growth, but with what I have witnessed this plant do in just a few days I intend to try and do the next pruning as timely as I can. So, the question is why do I usually not SEE that this plant needs trimming… why do we wait? Why do we resist the opportunity to TRANSFORM??
