This is a positive influence for writing, speaking, all kinds of communications. Mercury in Libra making a smooth aspect to Jupiter promises good luck with signing legal documents, discussing marriage and initiating talks with adversaries.
This aspect also bodes well for diplomatic endeavors. Now is a good time to initiate talks with anyone you don’t see eye-to-eye with. Discussions, ideas, writing begun now will yield fortuitous results.
This is the 2nd time that Mercury sextiles Jupiter. The first sextile was on Sept 10th, than Mercury stationed retrograde on Oct 4th and sextiles Jupiter today. Mercury will station direct this Saturday and move forward to make a third and final sextile on November 1st. These three repeated aspects between Mercury and Jupiter on Sept 10th, Oct 20th and November 1st may signify related or repeated events.
- Thursday Oct 23 2014 Sun enters Scorpio
You are a passionate and intense individual. You may gain attention through creating dramatic situations. You may also be secretive.
The Sun enters Scorpio on Wednesday so expect leaders to become more intense, vindictive, dramatic and secretive. Scorpio is a powerful and honest sign but it’s traditional ruler Mars in an opposition to Neptune shows that there may be some confusion, deception and misinformation to deal with this week.
The intensity increases as Sun and Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio deals with issues surrounding death, mysteries, joint finances, estates, taxes, spousal support, plumbing, hidden areas of life, and the occult may be highlighted now.
With Mercury retrograde, going back over old financial matters or past mystery now may yield fruitful results. Powers of concentration are strong and unrelenting now. This is a time to leave no stone left unturned.
- Thursday Oct 23 2014 Venus enters Scorpio
An intense need for relationships. Passionate in relations with others. A desire to know your partner’s innermost thoughts and yet have a tendency towards secrecy.
Venus is in detriment in Scorpio, which does not make it a weak influence but it may cause things ruled by Venus to become more intense, passionate and secretive. Venus is known as a lesser benefic but sometimes her influence can be more warlike (read my previous blog about Venus in the Morning star position.) As I wrote about in my earlier article, Venus will be changing from her warlike Morning Star to more peaceful Evening Star position on Oct 25th (Saturday.) Also on Saturday (Saturns day) Mercury will be stationing direct on the degree of the Lunar eclipse on Oct 8th. Lunar eclipses are potent points for a year. The solar eclipse on Thursday also ramps things up. This means that relationships, women, financial matters, art, life/death issues my come to the fore on Saturday in a significant way.
- Thursday Oct 23 2014 Solar Eclipse, New Moon
This solar eclipse in the fixed, water sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is a powerful sign which can be extremely disciplined, forceful, secretive and can completely changes things. Scorpio is ruled traditionally by Mars and co-ruled by modern planet Pluto.
Scorpio rules over matters related to power, control, sex, death and transformation. Just before this eclipse there have been many acts of violence by extremist group ISIS especially against women. Two recent news stories concern women who were forced into sex slavery by ISIS member and another girl stoned to death. Venus, the natural significator of women in detriment in Scorpio has brought out these examples among many of violence against women.
People with Sun in Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: The solar eclipse may cause you to change your outlook on life and want to do something new. You may feel a sense of power which enables you to act upon your ideas without interference from others. No one can tell you how to live your life this year as you know what you want to do and feel compelled to do it for yourself. You may also change your style of clothes, a new hairstyle, plastic surgery or make other changes to your appearance. You have a vision to follow and you know that only you can make it happen. You may discover a way to increase your finances through working with others and their resources. You may also be required to keep things secret this year especially with financial matters.
