MERCURY IN SCORPIO: THE EXTENDED EDITION

Kate Bush

MERCURY IN SCORPIO  (27 SEPT – 2 DEC) 

Mercury’s ingress into Scorpio sees us moving away from the hostilities of the (Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra axis) and dive into the deep chasm of Scorpio’s fixed water.  

Mercury’s time in Scorpio is giving off a strong Hecate vibe, where looking deep into the stagnate waters gives opportunity to claim authority, authorship and divinity through these underworld waterscapes. 

Scorpio is a private yin fixed water sign and a place Mercury can work well.  Mercury enjoys the sharp focus and dedication that Scorpio offers. However, the strong emotional ambiance of Scorpio can detract from the clarity of information that Mercury is seeking. Being mindful of the nature AND intent of these obsessive and fixations, is one important proviso for this transit.  

Mars, rules Scorpio and is extremely strong right now, giving Mercury’s time in Scorpio a little extra heat and bite. This blurs the line around the separation of emotion from the information and increases the likelihood of strong emotions to flare up, to be engaged with.  

Scorpio is a sign that likes to look at things that others refuse to, creating space to hold and engage. It’s not always pleasant going through the muck and sorting through the crap to help unblock the blockages; but it’s something that Mercury in Scorpio excels at! 

Mercury has an extended stay in Scorpio thanks to its Retrograde cycle (14 Oct – 4 Nov). We are already in the shadow period. Mercury will also be opposing Uranus. Making this transit, potentially very fruitful with regards to innovating and individualising the area of your chart that Scorpio lords over and reconnecting an emotional intelligence to it.

WHEN JUPITER TURNS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN …

Jupiter turned direct in Capricorn over the weekend which isn’t a bad thing, it just not an overly huge thing in the context of it all.  Jupiter maybe direct, but extremely limited with what it can do. Jupiter is in a sign it doesn’t relate to in Capricorn as well having to live with the cold, domineering, tyrannous flatmate called Saturn. Saturn is strong in Capricorn, so it’s his way or the highway, Jupiter hasn’t got much muscle flex around here. Pluto is also bunking in there in all his dark cave like qualities. Add to this the aspects to Mars in Aries, and Jupiter direct kind of just means he has to deal with the implications of connecting his gloomy flatmates, and volatile neighbours. Jupiter in Capricorn is hardly the barrel of laughs that Jupiter is known for or enjoys. In 2020 this has been taken to the extreme thanks to the hostility that surrounds poor Jupiter. 

Jupiter direct however does mean, that it is moving in the right direction, the direction of getting the hell out of there. Jupiter is now making its way towards his 3rd conjunction with Pluto. The previous 2 conjunctions were April 4, June 30, and the third hit will be 12 November 2020.    

Jupiter Pluto is a combination that can have many manifestations, depending on the sign it is occurring in. In Capricorn we can see it via the huge Covid-19 bailouts, which seemed to have helped corporations / business more than the general population. The money thrown around by global governments is Jupiter size huge, but is it going to the people who need it most?   In Melbourne the first 2 conjunctions timed pretty well closely to the establishment and re-implement of state lockdowns (remembering Jupiter Pluto are in conjunction for a week either side of these dates).  The third hit will be just after the US Presidential election. Jupiter in Capricorn is just amplifying and expanding Capricorn significations such as Government, Control and things that Jupiter doesn’t enjoy.  

So, will Jupiter be turning direct do much? Not really, especially since his retrograde cycle is very well established as a part of his cycle. I wouldn’t put too much weight on the direct motion. This is a Jupiter whose hands are bound and is basically out of action until he leaves Capricorn. Post this third date night with Pluto, he makes his way to chase down Saturn. That is its own epic story … that will soon be told. xx

MARS RETROGRADE IN ARIES : FINDING OUR VALOUR

IMAGE : Grace Jones

Today Mars stands stationary in the sky, by tomorrow Mars makes his move to retrieve something that can’t be left behind, retrieve something that must be changed, altered or modified through his intense heat and pressure. Something must be re-sculpted and how this looks will be different and personal for each and every-one of us. The Mars retrograde is finally upon us. 

Mars will be hitting on the iron metal, stoking the fires, burning hot and bright in ways we aren’t especially used too. Strong desires and urges to completely change or modify things that are seeded in anger, frustration, fury or tiredness become obvious and in dire need of modification. The focus shifts to making constructive uses for our tools and learning how to master the tools we do have with more vigour, will and strength.

Mastery comes from learning from past mistakes and learning how to hold tools that have the potential for danger or harm, whist modifying and sculpting for constructive uses. Looking at what is really causing harm or damage, strongly underlays this Mars retrograde period, allowing you to use your tools more wisely.

Mars will be going back and reclaiming many things on many levels, but in-particular finishing off what was triggered from mid-February – March. Mars will be squaring and making contact with the things he ignited then when he transited Capricorn, a sign he has a firm footing in, thanks to his exaltation in Capricorn. 

Mars retrogrades occur every two years and Mars retrograding in his ruling sign of Aries is especially rare. 1988 and 1941 were the last instances this astrological transit occurred in Aries.

The question now is, what is currently being re-sculpted or sharpened through the fire and fumes? What is having the rust removed from and asking for a full refurbishment? Where do hostilities lay? Where does your anger sit? What Weapons have become blunt? What tools are outdated? Where is a lack of energy or vitality sit within you? What is the source of any and all burn out? 

Answers to these questions is where the steam of this Mars Retrograde is coming from and we have from now until November to work on our skills as craftspeople to mould and reshape whilst looking at our relationship with Mars, his dynamics and various manifestations. 

For a sign by sign breakdown, look to the Marathon of Bravery link below. 

Previous Mars Retrograde links from me :  Mars in Aries 2020 : A Marathon of Bravery & Fortitude and MARS RETROGRADE & MARS SQUARE SATURN 2020

For an incredibly in-depth round up Astrologer Gray Crawford also has a great article about this Mars Retrograde on his website.

Mars Retrograde & Mars Square Saturn 2020

IMAGE : Martine Beswick from @ that70silusion

Mars is just 13 days away from its retrograde in Aries and is currently just 2° away from the point it retrogrades at.  Meaning, Mars a fast-moving planet whose purpose is to move, energize, activate, inflame and assert its will; is basically standing still in the sky unable to enact any of his normal traits or activities. Moving only 2° in 13 days takes away the ability for Mars to do any of its normal significations, which essentially creates frustration, stagnation and pent up energy beginning to build, and build and build, until the Mars retrogradation on September 11 (AEST). 

Interestingly at the time of the Mars retrogradation the Moon will be a waning in Gemini conjunct the north node, and in a tight sextile aspect, giving the beginning of this retrograde a more inflated and fiery quality thanks to the North Node, and the waning cycle of releasing of an air sign moon and its emotions. If there was a match, to strike Mars and the jacked up moreish quality of the north node (rahu) this could well be a potential hotspot, or a cautious date to keep an eye on (September 11th).

Saturn has been and will continue to square Mars. A difficult or challenging aspect in Astrology, a square aspect adds friction to the relationship between two planets, whose general natures are opposing. Both Mars and Saturn are in rulership – meaning they are equally as strong and matched in the fight. Mars moving into a retrograde cycle, makes mars more volatile and un-predictive. 

Mars is basically unable to express itself and goes rogue, whilst Saturn is operating as normal, and is all about asserting consequence, restriction, government power structures and control.  The Mars Saturn square has been “on” since the 18th of August and begins to cool off at the beginning of October. Returning again in early 2021. 

Saturn is the stern parent, and Mars the hyperactive child however this is a Mars whose energy has been so pent up that it’s become unpredictable and is ready to set a light all that is frustrating it. Resistance to Saturn will be strong, however Saturn is all about the long game, and looks to have the upper hand in this scenario. This is the dynamic that is playing out over the next couple of months, so stay tuned in and be on the look-out !  The next couple of months is a bit of roller coaster of a ride. 2020, the year that keeps giving !  Interestingly enough, this all begins to take shape, just as Melbourne is meant to come out of Stage 4 lockdown.

Rules of engagement 

  • Know where theses energies are activated in your life (link here for sign by sign large brushstrokes)
  • Be mindful of overdoing it or underdoing things, the frustration or burn out from either are unpredictable and real, so is being accountable for it
  • Understand this is the energy we are operating in, expect aggressions or over handed control mechanisms to be more obvious in your life along with the jostle between the two. Your role is to look after yourself within the bigger pushes and pulls or activations.
  • Know that this time will pass, but if something pops up don’t brush it aside. Attend to it.  Ignoring it for later, isn’t a solution when you’re dealing with such frictive energies. 
  • Being overly aggressive or hostile yourself won’t help; it just draws you into something that will become larger than you initially anticipated.

SUN IN VIRGO : 23 August – 22 September 2020

Image : By Mert Alas

Le soleil’s transition into Virgo marks the shift away from heights of summer or the depths of winter as we find ourselves transiting into a mutable yin earth energy. The Sun moves away from the surety and centring offered by the fixed fire of Leo that has warmed us over the past month. We are entering into a space of more critical thinking and discernment, with Virgo’s energy. We now focus on the analysis of potential problems and look to create improvements to things we are pulling apart for better understanding of the various components. The Sun’s focus in Virgo is to assist in getting these balancing acts in order from the ground up, bring attention to a more grounded and methodical approach as we prepare for the point of equal light and day with the September equinox.

Mercury, Virgo’s ruler entered Virgo just days before the Sun, making this particular Virgo season more aligned thanks to Mercury’s strength and empowered capabilities. We have a strong Mercury in its rulership & exaltation in Virgo, able to work to its highest function and capacity.  This is allowing us to look at the small details, iron out all the information; to get a clearer idea and understanding of the processes and how to implement changes to them, which is one of Virgo’s strengths as a sign. The Sun and Mercury in Virgo together supports what we are growing and nurturing through strengthen and evaluation in a more clinical and objective way.  Helping better shape and grow the things we wish to take with us, from the Sun’s time in Leo.

Virgo energy shows us through small expressions, the large impacts they can have in the larger cycles both physically and energetically. Much like the mental clarity that can be gained by a big spring / autumn clean. Strong and simple baseline work, can create and inspire new environments by creating order and room for things to grow and evolve in. Mutable earth is secure and solid ground, yet it informs us that even things we know are solid must change, evolve, adapt and shift to survive. It is with these small yet vital changes and adaptions that allow us to continue on our path, evolving with the situation rather than being stubborn or fixed in our intent or wills.

Whether it be a shift towards the warming of the earth evident by the buds sprouting with spring, in the southern hemisphere; or the cooling in the air and the reddening of the leaves on the trees in the northern hemisphere the Sun’s time in Virgo is to assist with preparation for change, reflected back at us through our environments. Virgo season offers us the ability to ground down, be attentive, be innovative, be present and be able to engineer with strong support, so our plans are focused with the time and attention they deserve, even within the larger scale distractions occurring globally in 2020.

NEW MOON & MERCURY CAZIMI IN LEO

The New Moon in Leo on August 19th at 12:37pm AEST comes just after Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun seeding two new cycles in Leo energy, within two days. Leo energy is heartfelt, brave, creative, leadership driven, warm and centring.  Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun, burns off all the residue from the previous cycle and rejuvenating Mercury who is tired and worn out at the close of its last cycle.

The Sun in Leo bestows on Mercury the gifts of creativity, artistry, leadership, confidence, positivity and an assuredness rivalled by none. From its connection with the fires of the sky, this is a fantastic time for all creative explorations or being able to access the fun of communication, words, arts, truth and meaning. Be brave and be open to exploring new ways of presenting and communication. Don’t shy away from being seen.

This fiery baptism from the Sun begins a new synodic cycle for Mercury, instilling the qualities of a more creative and heart-focused communications and presentations. Initiating communications will feel more honest and centred around your own personal desires, along with the influence of a childlike curiosity to see things through fresh eyes.  Don’t shrink to fit in.

The New Moon follows this lead on August 19that 26° degrees of Leo.  The Sun and Moon align for their yearly conjunction much like the Mercury cycles these Leo themes are now being applied to the Moon for a 2-week cycle; until she reaches full light at the opposition in Aquarius where these new themes may be challenged, or evolve in some way. The Moon’s embodiment of this energy differs from Mercury, as it’s a more internal process offering nourishment and emotional re-alignment to Leo themes, allowing our re-identification with them.

Leo energy is bold, its brave, its leadership, it’s the spotlight, it’s the gravitational pull, it’s the attraction, it’s the creativity, joy, and child like curiosity and investigation of things. The Leo new moon seeks to bring this into the emotional sphere to create more sovereignty and autonomy with regards to our health and our emotional wellbeing and prioritizing it.  Paying extra attention too or looking at heart health is also good at this time.

The new moon, like the last full moon is the first un-aspected new moon to the eclipse points, new moon in Cancer which was opposite Saturn and conjunct these eclipses points was noted for its heaviness and feelings of intensity and even depression. At this Leo new moon, it’s the opposite. Leo energy is supportive leadership and it’s not afraid to shine, and this new moon along with mercury’s new cycles helps to creates a new connection with your relationship with this…. Enjoy x

Venus in Cancer 2020

Screen Shot 2020-08-10 at 12.35.18 pm

Venus shifted into Cancer on August 8thwhere she will stay until September 7th , this shift after 4 months in Gemini, instead of the usual 1 month is moving Venus away from social & intellectual focus and connectivity offered by Gemini (yang) into a more nourishing and comfort focused (yin) Cancerian setting.

Venus enjoys the cool moistness of Cancer’s waters elementally, especially after spending an extended time period in a dry detached air element of Gemini. Her retrograde is officially over in Gemini for another 8 years, insights gleaned from her Gemini phase (April – August) is what Venus in Cancer is slowly helping integrate. Venus now extends her beneficence thorough Cancerian themes and topics like comforts, food, home, family, ancestors, nourishment and nurturing yourself or others. Connecting to mother or those that you see and feel as mother energies is beneficial.

Things may get a little bit bumpy as towards the end of this transit, as she meets up with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn by opposition, however what Venus is trying to do is heal and tend to these old wounds, by showing benefits, of such processing. Venus will not be shy and will do her best to smooth it over as best she can, as she continues her quests of beneficence, that now grace the Cancer sector of the sky & your birth chart, whist integrating new lessons from her retrograde cycle, even if things get a bit confronting by months end.

Full Moon in Aquarius 2020

Screen Shot 2020-08-03 at 12.22.58 pm

The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 3rd/4th  is the first non-eclipsed Full Moon since 5th June, hurrah ! we finally get our ritual moons back, on the moons day.  The Aquarius full moon is lighter and better for ritual work, as it’s without the heavy, unseen and shady qualities, created by the tight connections to the Nodal points; which were dominant features of two recent full moons making any moon or ritual work problematic and unpredictable*** due to strong unseen variables.  This full moon provides a lighter and freer manifestation of moon energy.

Today’s Full Moon also forms a tight T-Square to Uranus a planet full of Surprises, which is constantly pushing for change, development and evolution.  Uranus is a planet that likes to explore new pathways and isn’t afraid of traveling the road less travelled, much like the Fool card in the tarot.   Uranus is offering up some new ideas or situations at this lunation, making for an interesting 2-week cycle. The Aquarius full moon is a breath of fresh air and full of potential moments of genius, strongly bend towards innovation and change, be open to the ideas when they come flooding in ! Be open to the call !

*** an example of what was unseen during these previous eclipsed full moons ? In Melbourne what was unseen, was that the loosening of social restrictions at the Full Moon on June 5thwould be reimposed with more force at this Full Moon in Aquarius …

August Monthly Horoscopes

 

Screen Shot 2020-07-30 at 10.26.34 am

The Sun’s transit through Leo this August breaks up the Cardinal siege which was reactivated in late June and July by the Sun’s movement through the sign of Cancer.  June and July spot lit some incredibly difficult terrain and may have highlighted some strong issues and flaws, which need addressing over time, both internally and externally.

With the Sun moving into Leo, the motivation to fix or improve these situations, is stronger and less daunting as we see more opportunities for solution and the increasing assistance on offer, thanks to other planetary supports. The Sun’s entry into Leo on July 22nd/23rd saw clarity and strength come knocking at the door, opening new reserves of energy and inspiration, thanks to the break-up of the planetary tensions currently held on the Cardinal axis (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn).

The Leo Sun is supported by Mars in Aries, both planets in signs of their rulership, both active planets that LOVE to move and motivate. Mars in Aries shares the same fire and yang energy as the Sun in Leo and in August they connect to each other in a supportive trine aspect.  This fire energy brings motivation, vitality and break throughs. This is the beauty of August astrologically speaking, we finally get some movement and traction.  August has a lot of yang fire energy which allows us to put our emotions aside and offers strength as well as the resolve needed as we move forwards with 2020’s challenges.

In light of all the heat and friction created by the Sun and Mars contacts all month, we also have Venus entering Cancer in the first week of August. Venus finally completes her 3-month retrograde cycle in Gemini as she shifts into Cancer giving a cooling affect to help temper all the previously mentioned fire activity. Venus will be appreciative of this entry into Cancer, an element (Water) that she enjoys, after 3 months of integration, reform, change and evolution of Gemini themes, stories and activities (communications, networks, social activities, sociability, online presences etc).  Venus moves to create a more healing and nurturing influence as she moves over some very tender Cancer territory as well as giving temperance to the extreme heat created by Sun and Mars, helping counter the potentials for burn out.

Mercury will enter Virgo, also a sign of its rulership from the 20th of August, which creates great opportunity for Mercury to do what it does, well! i.e.: write, reading, create, plan, trade, network, analysis and processing. Mercury is our intellect and our acumen, meaning late August will be excellent for Mercury type activities and initiations.

Overall August is a great month, we have 3 planets in their Rulership (The Sun, Mars and Mercury), which means they get to operate in the way they know and act best.  Things may still be very challenging, personally and globally, however August does offer some of the best Astrology for 2020, creating space to recharge and tap into The Sun (vitality, visibility and HEALTHY ego centring) Mars (energy, charge, motivation, impulse, physicality and doing) and Mercury (intellect, analyse, communications, reading, writing and business affairs). Perhaps some of the most supportive astrological transits for the 2nd half of 2020, August is a great time to help re-align and bridge as we move towards the challenging aspect of Mars retrograding in Aries later this year.

 Below is a sign by sign breakdown on where this energy will be occurring in chart, on a general level. Please note, if you know your rising sign, read that as well.  If you are interested in a personalised reading, feel free to contact me direct.

Sun Opposite Saturn – Cardinal Chess

Screen Shot 2020-07-21 at 12.04.30 pm
📸Isabelle Hubbert as Madame Bovary By Claude Chabrol

Deep in darkness, restriction and burdens weigh heavy. Hours after the New Moon in Cancer, its effects are heightened with the Sun’s opposition to Saturn. The Sun’s light revealing the cracks, as it pours light from an opposing angle, allowing a new view of what has been bound together and constructed.

This occurring deep in the darkness of the ‘new’ moon, IS hard. Waiting for the moons first crescent of light to hatch, is uncomfortable. When this light is shed La Luna is finally able to help, lessen the intensity of feeling and emotion. Until then, this is where we will be.

The cracks and stress fractures are currently well-lit and obvious. The Sun opposite Saturn makes any weakness apparent, any regrets glaringly obvious. We will be sitting with this, waiting and wandering, lamenting as we gather ourselves for the Sun to progress into Leo on July 23rd.

When the Sun enters Leo, we are welcomed with its warmth and more inspired to play in its light.  It is at this time that the first of the moon’s new light begins to shine down upon us. Allowing us to move forward with the insights gleaned over this challenging dark moon cycle. Until then we sit and a wait, processing as we anticipate the return of the King, and the Sun’s entry into Leo.
