“Moving into More Fertile Territory”
With the Sun’s move into Libra, the New Moon, and Pluto’s change in direction behind us, we’re standing on new ground. We no longer have the “luxury” of blaming, wallowing, waiting, settling, or worrying our way through life. That phase has run its course. Without sounding too dramatic, our task now is to “permeate the world with the fragrance of our soul.” Too bad if that clashes with the prevailing status quo, material security, emotional comfort, or the sense of order we’ve tried to maintain since the beginning of 2014. That’s ruthless Pluto talking, not me. The challenge, as always, is to move beyond fear. Understanding how we got to where are is critical.
Opposing all the Libra is Aries. Courageous action is required. Forward movement cannot be stopped by fear of failure. Well, it can, but Pluto is ruthless, and he says it’s time to move forward. Picking a fight with him is not the best idea. He’s ruthless. Did I just say that?
The most effective actions going forward may require moving out of your comfort zone. Discomfort won’t kill you but, spending time lamenting that something new is now demanded of you, will deplete your energy. Depressive moods or the senseless waste of every resource of the self warns you that you may be sinking and in need of some help. Pay close attention.
Mercury’s move into Scorpio on Saturday may exemplify Pluto’s shift in direction. Mercury is motivated to tell you the “unsugar-coated” truth about yourself or someone else, while, at the same time, giving you power to destroy psychological conditioning that fuels stagnation. Mercury in Scorpio can completely transform your mindset and your perspective, revealing new ways to get from point A to point B.
Mercury intensifies and forces a reordering of priorities, simplification, and building on more solid foundations. Mercury moves retrograde from October 4th – 24th so a three-week period of reconsideration to clarify is imminent. (Don’t make any decisions that will be difficult to reverse during that time. I’ll cover that next week.)
Venus feels right at home in Libra, more “herself,” as she is able to consolidate power. It may be wise to focus on the finer points of attracting what you desire, harmonizing with the flow, and leaning into the support that surrounds you. The nature of your role in relationships is highlighted. Venus focuses you on cleverly using your resources to best advantage. This period of time marks the completion of a phase, not the attainment of perfection. It’s time to find a new way for yourself and that process may entail trial and error.
It’s not too late for New Moon wishes. Ask Venus to remove indecision, the habit of over-compromising, and the tendency to prefer peace and security at any price. Ask that she replace those with courage. Then give Venus something back, like immersing yourself in something you love- the perfect Libra New Moon ritual. It’s time to be all-in as you “permeate the world with the fragrance of your soul.”
I will personalize the emphasis for each sign in this weeks’s horoscopes.
