Keep on meeting... Scorpio

I still remember in my early days as an astrology student, I would dread meeting Scorpios.  Yes, I was influenced by the old school way of looking at this 8th sign of the zodiac - they are deep, dark and dangerous!  Looking back, it's not all wrong, as meeting those Scorpions merely was a projection of my disowned 8th house stellium......


Having undergone my Pluto transit to my Sun for the past 18 months (and still going!), I have learned to embrace the Scorpion qualities.  Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas mention in one of their CPA books (sorry, can't remember which one now...) that the lowest (or instinctive is a better word) way of expressing the Scorpion energy is by lashing out (i.e. revenge).  The next level of transformation is the eagle where the native is able to resist from the instinctive pull, raise himself up and view the situation from an elevated perspective - just like an eagle (i.e. not take things personally and get all emotionally tetchy from the slightest remark.  Take a step back and see the situation from a different viewpoint instead).  Then the final expression is that of a Phoenix where it rises from the ashes, leaving the old self behind and taking the renewed, matured self into the future (i.e. the native knows that s/he is well-equipped spiritually to deal with any life lessons head-on).

Some astrologers went as far as segregating the stages into seven - that's worth checking out.

So now, when I meet Scorpios, I immediately notice their profound wisdom behind the depths of their gazes.  I admire their incisive thinking and and insightful way of problem-solving.

Living Astrologically - My Lunar Patterns


The moon transits each sign for 2.5 days so it goes around the chart once a month.  


I've noticed that Moon in Aries puts me in an uplifting mood, as it also conjuncts my natal Mercury.

Moon in Taurus used to make me binge eat, but since becoming consciously aware of this behaviour, I've been able to actively control this indulgence.

I used to dread the lunar goddess transiting my 12th house as it would really drag down my mood.  Since my acquaintance with family constellation though, I've noticed the moon doesn't stir up my hidden emotions as much as before - probably because I've been consciously digging up those 'ghosts' during my constellation work so more and more of the emotional triggers are being removed from the depths of my psyche.

Another lunar transit I used to dislike was Moon in Sagittarius.  Yes, I know it's supposed to be fun  when we gallop into the distance with the Archer but not when it triggers my solar T-square with Neptune and Saturn!  Again, family constellation has cleared away some of my solar issues so now I can finally enjoy the carefree spirit of the centaur......

What do you notice when the moon transits through your houses?

New Moon in Aquarius (take two) 2015 - On the Brink of Change

The New Moon this month occurs in the final degrees of Aquarius at 29 degrees 59 minutes.  We stand upon the precipice of change, from the logical and humanitarian Aquarius (air) to the Universal and nebulous Pisces (water).  


This new moon is due to join the existing Pisces brigade (Neptune, Chiron, Venus and Mars), intensifying the imaginative and compassionate energy of this water sign.  Venus and Mars enter Aries two days later, igniting the dream locked within the psyche and unleashing the desire to actively go about grabbing what makes your heart sing.

With Mercury in Aquarius sextile Saturn (traditional ruler of Aquarius), we are endowed with an element of detachment as we go about reaching for our heart's desires in the practical world.  

The previous Aquarius New Moon in January was in the early degrees of Aquarius, which conjunct my natal Venus.  This time, it conjunct my Mars.  Can't wait to see what awaits me ahead.....

Living Astrologically: Venus-Mars conjunction in Pisces

The current Venus-Mars conjunction in Pisces sends a sextile to my natal Moon in 10th house of career.  

Recently, I've been struggling with a career decision, so I asked for a sign from above....I didn't think much of it once I had surrendered the situation out to the cosmos....since yesterday though, I've been getting the same message delivered to me in various ways, over and over again.....'Be brave and take the plunge'......

However, with Mars in Pisces, I'm still not feeling the 'oomph' to take action (yes, it's tempting to run away from it, Pisces style!). I can feel it in my blood that I do need to make the change eventually.......perhaps when Mars and Venus enter the dynamic and highly motivated sign of Aries on Friday 20th February, which exactly conjunct my natal Mercury, I might finally be able to feel the courageous energy descending upon me, urging me to take action....

What's this nebulous pair doing in your chart?
