The new moon at 5 Scorpio just before midnight Sunday Oct 27, 2019, is particularly challenging. For one, Mars, the ruler of the Scorpio moon is in a tight square to Saturn. The square (90 degree aspect) between these two planets puts you in a tough position and one in which it is almost impossible to take action. You are forced to hold your ground while attempting to work through a very tense and limiting situation that is hard to change. Perseverance is key.
The 5th degree of Scorpio in the Sabian Symbols (As channeled by clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler), describes as situation where you are under emotional assault, yet are strong enough to resist. You must not let inertia take over and hold strong to your position.
What is also being challenged is the status quo, the establishment. If we look down the road to the Triple Conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto late next year, this situation is a setup for big changes and a whole new direction. New ideas are forming now beneath the surface which will erupt to great effect down the road. But for now, sit tight, knowing you are in the right and persevere your course of action diligently.
Back on October 12th, Mercury entered the shadow of its retrograde. Information and messages began to get misinterpreted and askew. The period during the retrograde is the opportunity to straighten out these miscommunications and re-align your communication in a prodcutive way. Technology that breaks down is due for replacement, and often the Mercury retrograde coincides with these sorts of things, as well as travel mishaps and rescheduling.
The actual Mercury retrograde takes place from November 1st until November 21st. Back up files, and re-check all contacts and agreements before signing. It is best to wait to put things into writing until after Mercury goes direct on November 21st. Mercury leaves the shadow (lag) of the retrograde and is in the clear as of December 27th.
If you can believe good things come to those who wait, December 2nd 2020, Jupiter (planet of openness and expansion) will move into Capricorn, the sign of restraint and control. Something will start to give, albeit slowly, as is Capricorn’s modus operandi.
With the Triple Conjunction in Air (Aquarius) late next year, a whole new chapter will begin for society, and for each of us individually based on where this once in a lifetime transit takes place in your chart.
