The Sun entered Pluto’s sign of Scorpio on October 23rd, shifting the energy inwards after the intense Aries Full Moon. When the Sun travels through Scorpio, it’s the season to become an Intronaut, to make a deep dive into Yin Water, to use your Xray vision to see right through surface pretence to the underbelly of life, to come out of the virtual coma of 24/7 distraction and to feel what you’re feeling. And what you’re feeling probably won’t be pretty or superficial or full of light, but it will be real. This is the true power of Scorpionic crisis and re-orientation.
On Sunday October 31st, Mars-Scorpio’s other ruler- joins the Sun in the 8th sign but just before the warrior enters Scorpio, he conjuncts deep space planet Haumea. The 4th largest Kuiper belt planet is as important and as powerful as Pluto. With a strapline of “The Terrible Gift” – terrible as in awesome and disturbing- Haumea catalyses tipping points, both inner and outer.

Tread carefully as tempers will flare and people will be much more sensitive than usual and with Sun and Mars at odds with Jupiter, things could easily get out of proportion.
Examine your own motives and remember that words have the power either to harm or heal. Be an evolutionary Alchemist and shadow Shaman.

A tunnel through a mountain.
“When darkness comes, you need more darkness if you’re ever going to find the light. As the struggle of Earth existence descends upon you, you must find a way to harness the power of that struggle to turn death into rebirth. But it is so pressurised and absolutely relentless a path to walk. Everything you meet reflects the same destiny-dilemma. For you are being pulled through the collective nightmare by an immense evolutionary force and that means feeling everything, experiencing all of it, and letting everything go. Those pulled in to such a radical track develop core perseverance magnificently and learn to be light while super-heavy. Eventually, glorious things happen and you can emerge into a whole other reality, knowing how purposeful every step has been, that all of it was necessary to re-demptively build resilience, as you knew it would.” – Elias Lonsdale Inside Degrees
Aries Weekly Forecast: October 24-31, 2021
After the drama of last week’s Full Moon in Aries, this week will feel quieter and calmer. The Sun is lighting up your 8th House for the next 4 weeks and will be joined by your own planet Mars on October 30th.It marks a time to slow right down to look inwards, to discern your own motivations, to notice where your habitual defences are doing you a disservice and to allow yourself to acknowledge your true feelings about people in the inner circle of your life. Usually taboo issues such as money, intimacy and family inheritance will come up for resolution by presenting as outer situations.
Take your time.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: October 24-31, 2021
The Sun is travelling through your opposite sign of Scorpio for the next month delivering the first wild card eclipse across your sign for 18 years on November 19th.Relationships are changing from the inside out, as are you. Scorpio is the sign of reorientation through crisis, meaning that partnerships whether personal or professional will show their true colours i.e. who is for you and who is against you. This week, tread carefully and sensitively and spend more time looking at your own habitual patterns than in demanding that others change their behaviour. It all starts with you. Are you sending mixed messages? Are you overly independent or co-dependent?
Invest in yourself first.
