Outer Planetary Influences October 2014 and beyond…

Saturn in Scorpio: It’s been a boon for some, and a giant pain in the butt for many…but it’s on the move, heading into the middle degrees of the sign. This means you can expect an escalation of any Saturnian issues that have come up this year.  Saturn is all about work, order, duties, responsibilities, parents, commitments, authority, and limitations. In health, it’s bones, joints, teeth, skin, and “blockages.” Soooo, if you have fixed signs Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius prominent in your chart, or Scorpio in an important spot in your chart, you will feel the pressure ramping up. This can be okay, if you are ready to work super hard for goals and take full responsibility for what you need to do. But Saturn is a hard task master and Scorpio takes no prisoners, so for some folks, there will be some very tough choices to make as this year ends. The way to get through it? Make those tough choices, be SUPER REALISTIC, don’t be afraid of endings, and take that step into the unknown!

Neptune in Pisces: Are you a Pisces born in February? Or perhaps an August Virgo? Or do you have early Pisces or Virgo degrees in an important spot in your chart? If so, Neptune in Pisces has likely cast its spell on you! This is sometimes cool, as it is a good vibration for art, healing, and spirituality…but in general, for us mere mortals who aren’t busy saving the world or painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling, not so much. Keywords: illusion, confusion, deception, self-deception, victim, martyr, savior, enabler, addict . Those kinds of things are much more likely to crop up, but it won’t seem like it at the time. Neptune energy is hypnotic, mesermizing, and powerfully seductive. We’ll think we’ve met our Soul Mate, or found the Holy Grail when Neptune is conjunct or in opposition to a key chart point. But that magical something is almost NEVER what it seems to be. It just usually takes a year or more to figure it out…and then, it’s often a bit late to do anything about it, or make up for lost time. So, if you feel like you might be in a Neptunian fog, take note: if it seems to good to be true, it probably is, and don’t make any big decisions you can’t un-do later.  And really take care of your health. When in doubt, ask a friend who isn’t under a Neptune transit or come get a reading with me!

Uranus in Aries vs Pluto in Capricorn: Well, it’s true, this nasty little combo is still having its way with us! Power struggles, political strife, warlike tendencies, breakdowns, bizarre weather and earth changes, unstable economic trends…it’s all still going full tilt as Uranus and Pluto continue NOT to play nicely together. We’ve got a couple more years of this dance, so batten down the hatches and toughen up! Some suprisingly good things often arise during periods of conflict, as we are often forced to change. And sometimes these are positive changes in disquise that we (individually or collectively) wouldn’t make, if things were more peachy keen. So, out of struggle comes growth and triumph. And lots and lots of learning. Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn born around the very begining of your respecitive months (April, July, October, January) will notice the effects of this energy in a very personal way during the rest of this year 2013, and during much of next year. Hang in there and embr ace change and transformation.
