 Oct. 22 New Moon at 29 degrees of Libra

 

 "Let us gaze from one end of the Universe to the other

In one breath   an epoch flashes before your eyes..."  Aleph 2160, degree 209

 

Prelude:  The New Moon this month occurred at the 29th degree of Libra. Two days later we found Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus , Mercury & Jupiter all transiting through zodiacal Scorpio. This offers us a rather intense journey through the underworld or the secret and often invisible side of life. Emotions will no doubt run high this month. Traditional astrology sees Scorpio as relating to death and taxes. Transpersonal astrology ups that an octave to rites-of-passage and shared ecological and environmental resources. Kabbalistic astrology views Scorpio as the Neshair, the Eagle, the one with both telescopic and microscopic vision. The Sepher Yetzirah letter correspondence is with the letter nun, ruling over the sense of smell, intuition, and what the Rider-Waite Tarot deck calls "the angel of temperence". The Scorpio season began with the Bioneers conference in Marin. Where I live in Nelson, British Columbia, we had a film festival that featured a film entitled The Yes Men ( www.theyesmen.org) which shows clearly how the WTO has been a total farce at creating anything resembling Fair Trade on our planet. This week is dubbed fossil free week here in the Kootenays. As it is written in the Scorpio sector of Aleph 2160: "our dependency on fossil fuels is making fools and fossils out of us all". Cuba has been living without oil for 15 years now and Brazil has 75% of their vehicles running on ethanol rather than gasoline. So the theme this month is renewable resources and initiatives that clear the environment of toxins and the economy of corporate greed and unhealthy agendas...

Portals: The good news this month is that each of those planets moving through Scorpio will eventually trine Uranus in Pisces (Venus on Nov.1 ; Sun on Nov.3; Mars: Nov. 8; Mercury : Nov.13) This bodes well for the water signs, particularly the Cancerians. Saturn and Jupiter are still squaring off for most of the month, Saturn symbolizing the old boys corporate elite (Leo) hanging on to the power bar versus Jupiter power-to-the people in provocative and punchy Scorpio. The Sun squares Neptune on Nov. 9th & 10th which should offer up a moment of dissolution of the old, and a vision of the new earth that is coming slowly,slowly. Venus squares Neptune on Nov.7th, Mars on Nov.17th. Neptune is the ruler of Kether or the crown chakra on the kabbalistic Tree-of-Life. This means that there is a higher vision and sense of purpose coming down the tube to illumine the heart, the will and the values of humans this month. The Sun conjuncts Jupiter on Nov. 21st at the 29th degree of Scorpio. This is the zodiacal degree of the nearby star Alpha Centauri, a star from where angels and benefic extra-terrestrial beings watch over us.  Finally, on Nov. 24th Jupiter will enter zodiacal Sagittarius, and the Mayan Calendar enters the daylight portion of the 5th day of the Galactic Night. This is a very positive happening according to Carl Johan Calleman, author of The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness. (The author of Kan will be offering a seminar in Sudbury, Ontario Nov.17-19 to attune to the Galactic Energies about to transform our planet during this upcoming Portal: visit the calendar/links section at www.treeoflifeschool.com for your invite)

Zodiacal Oracles:

Taurus: You may become the anchor this month for a rival or a loved one who is dealing with a powerful addiction. It could even be an addiction to you, dear Taurus! Your motto: I am loving, loyal yet without attachments....

Gemini: Your childlike charm and lightness of being may receive a sudden judo chop or karate blow to the belly. You must learn to go to the mat, roll with the punches, & enjoy the skunk medicine. You will survive and thrive....

Cancer: There is within us a natural creative tension that exists between what is and what we vision. If you can hold this tension in a playful, joyful way, dear Cancer, the world is your oyster. Hold your breath and dive for your pearl....

Leo: I know you are dying to hear what we can say about the good things that the-once-every-29-year transit of Saturn through your sign can bring. Things like status, acknowledgment, karmic rewards for service. How about: a heart that knows truth... 

Virgo: You have been hiding like Lao Tzu's tortoise by the riverbank for over half your life, a humble servant of the collective good. There comes a time in every Virgo's life to polish the sword and shine. Run, tortoise, run....

Libra: Your fellow libran, Leonard Cohen, once wrote a song entitled: "There ain't no cure for love". Double negatives and bad grammar aside, he speaks of co-dependence and potential addiction to the loved one. So better just love the One....

Scorpio: It is the season of the Scorpio. All those transits through your sign will keep the intensity of your life alive. You will be called upon to console those who suffer, feed the hungry and love the unlovables. Let go of your indomitable will, my friend. Surrender....

Capricorn: Life is not about security or insecurity, wealth or the lack thereof, prosperity or poverty. It is the season where Capricorns are called upon to do all the electrical, plumbing and drywall repairs to aging homes and bodies. What you need now is : A time to dream & an air ticket to India!!

Aquarius: You are the master of The Quantum Leap, are you not? Take you cue from the croaking frog on the lily pad. Enjoy the rainy season. You need not croak before departure....

Pisces: Big changes coming your way, Pisces, like it or not. You will be turned inside out, upside down, extravert introvert, masculine to feminine and vice versa. Love your enemy. Say goodbye to old friends. Kiss the strangers who love and adore you. You know who they are...
