The Times, They are a Changing--Gemini Full Moon with T-Crosses
Like it or not, big changes are on the way with the Mutable transits grabbing the spotlight during November's Gemini Full Moon. Not only has the North Node representing our fate moved into Virgo, but Jupiter in Virgo opposes Chiron in Pisces, and Saturn in Sagittarius tightens in on Neptune in Pisces. What does it all mean?

Well, if you have been lazy on your spiritual path then now's the time when spiritual lessons appear to test you. If you have fallen under the spell of addictions, then now is the time to get professional help and de-tox those habits to make room for new spiritual energies to come through you. If you're a channel or medium, then clients will keep you busy now, as they experience spirits trying to contact them directly. But mostly with Saturn closing in on Neptune, we're going to question the safety of vapor and e-cigarettes, recreational drugs made legal, the current prison system, and practices in big hospitals just to name a few themes that will come up in November.

On the other hand, religious leaders such as Pope Francis and spiritual leaders such as the 14th Dalai Lama will inspire us to serve the Greater Good. We've been feeling this urge since Neptune moved into Pisces back in 2011, but now with the North Node in Virgo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Jupiter in Virgo, we're wanting to put a plan in to action. It's not enough to talk about compassion and humility or simplifying our lives, but we must now put those things into practice.

Neptune Wikipedia
The Sun at 3 degrees Sagittarius conjuncts Saturn, opposes the Gemini Full Moon, and squares Neptune, thus forming a Mutable T-Cross. Many of us were born with Mutable T-Crosses in our birth charts so we're up to speed with adapting to change and keeping a flexible mind. But for those of you who aren't so fortunate (whoever thought I would be saying that?), will experience changes seemingly dropped into your lap. You have to change jobs, you lose your home and have to relocate, you get itchy feet and decide to move abroad (across the blue sea). Whatever changes come your way, it's time to move on and leave the old ways behind.

Meanwhile, Jupiter in Virgo opposes Chiron so it's time to seek therapy for childhood wounds, especially for people born with Chiron in Pisces or Virgo. Did you feel neglected as a child or invisible? Did your parents practice a strange religion or force you into a religion that went against your grain? Did your parents join a religious cult? How did Chiron in Pisces affect you? And if you didn't have Chiron in Pisces at birth, what part of religion do you require to make peace with? If you're anti-anything to do with religion, you have some work at this time.

Meanwhile, Venus in Libra pulls Pluto and Uranus into a Cardinal T-Cross. We're questioning what we value and seeking balance in our lives around our values. Or perhaps we have struggled with a partnership (business or romantic) for too long and we seek release from it now. We could also hear about mistreatment of women and we seek a more radical way of dealing with that poor treatment. After all, aren't we Divine Feminine. At least Venus transits in her own sign here and she brings feminine energy to the Uranus-Pluto (masculine) square. BTW, Mars also transits in Libra but thankfully is not part of the Cardinal T-Cross (too wide an orb). However, other astrologers are going to pull Mars into the cross.

Mercury Wikipedia
Saturn forms Fire Trine with Uranus which will temper Uranus erratic energy. If we do experience sudden events caused by Uranus in hot head Aries, Saturn will put on the brakes and help us look outward and expand our consciousness, possibly through religion, academics, or foreign relations. Meanwhile, Chiron forms a sextile with Pluto so we move past our childhood wounds and transform our lives and ourselves. Chiron and Pluto remind us that we can rise from our ashes as glorious phoenixes. Jupiter in Virgo trines Pluto so through our spiritual practices and our service to the world we also transform our lives. My guess is that by the end of November, we'll look in the mirror and see someone new staring back at us. But this transformation is not instant because the work began in 2008 when Pluto first arrived in Capricorn. Are you ready for change?

Scorpio Sun--Transformation, Death, Rebirth & Sex

It's too bad I didn't have the time to do a survey on Scorpio since this sign, similar to Virgo and Capricorn has received a bad rep over time. True, Scorpios are represented by the planet Pluto, insects that sting, and some Scorpio people have been known to sting, especially individuals with Scorpio Rising. But there's another side of Scorpio that revolves around regeneration.

Ruling Planets Pluto and Mars (traditionally)
Fixed Quality
Water Element 
Symbols: Scorpion, Dove, Eagle & Phoenix 

Description words: Penetrating, hypnotic, passionate, laser-focused, mysterious, sexy...

I'll tell you one thing, when we get stuck in a rut, call on a Scorpio friend who will tell us to be ruthless in clearing out the muck from our lives. In fact, call on a Scorpio friend if you need to clear out a closet and give away old clothing. Call on a Scorpio friend when you have the uncomfortable task of cutting someone out from your life, but don't call upon a Scorpio if you have trouble forgiving another--forgiveness is the biggest lesson Scorpions face (sun, moon and Rising Sign).

As far as Scorpion individuals go, they run the gamut from dark and brooding to hilarious comedians. Meg Ryan and Goldie Hawn are both Scorpio (who would have thought), but the Scorpio energy coupled no doubt with planets in Sagittarius or lighter Libra provide over-the-top comedy. Think of Meg Ryan's fake orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally or her lactose intolerance scene in French Kiss. Another Scorpio actress that has played both light and dark roles is Julia Roberts--and she's just intense anyway. I recall her interpretation of Erin Brockovich which in regard to the real Erin B. was overly passionate and intense. Julia also played Liz Gilbert in the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Oddly, both Erin and Liz are Cancerians.

Even though Pisces is considered the endpoint in the Zodiac Wheel, Scorpio represents the endpoint of life. Scorpio represents the hidden sides of us, the shadows, our projections, our wounded egos when we seek revenge, death, rebirth, regeneration, conception, birth, and pretty much anything with blood attached to it. Scorpio represents where each of us surrenders to the inevitable--that we are mortal and yet, eternal. Scorpios, more than any other Zodiac sign, have the ability to rise from the ashes, reinvent themselves on higher spiritual grounds, and reclaim their power. Scorpio is shamanic and similar to an ice-covered volcano with the heat and lava churning underneath the exterior. Even when you don't see a Scorpion's passionate side, he or she is smoldering underneath. Sometimes they even hide their attraction to another person because they're afraid to act vulnerable or get hurt again. Even a slight throws Scorpions off.

It helps to have the Scorpio Sun or Moon on the cusps of Sagittarius or Libra or to have planets, such as Mercury in Libra to bring the ability to detach from emotions. But if you're a Scorpio and you don't have those luxuries or if you have several planets in Scorpio, including Pluto then there are a few things to remember. One, not everyone is out to get you. Two, don't carry around hurt from the past like a badge because you'll just keep attracting the same pattern to you like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Three, we all fail, we all experience loss and everyone has been betrayed at some point in their life, but it is the willingness to forgive and move on that gives us our humanity, and in your case, heroics. Forgiveness is key as is developing compassion and empathy for others. Remember that doves of peace and eagles also represent Scorpio.

When it comes to sex, protect yourself because your sign represents that which is hidden, genitalia, and procreation. I've known Scorpio women to get pregnant at the drop of a hat and I've also known women with a Scorpio Rising or Sun to acquire sexually-transmitted diseases.  And in fact, I believe Pluto was about to move into Scorpio when AIDS was discovered and the focus was upon sex, immorality, and censorship of sexually explicit (and violent) lyrics and music. Grunge music also came about when Pluto transited in Scorpio (which for me was a very dark period).

As far as love and romance, Scorpio when it feels safe, can go deep with a person to the point where it feels like two soul mates intermingling. Scorpio doesn't merge with another in the way that Pisces does, but Scorpio loses its inhibitions (if it had any to begin with) and unleashes passion. However, this passion can turn icy and confuse the lover of a Scorpio person. Some people have said that sexual orgasms are like death and who would know better than a Pluto-ruled individual. Scorpio sex is not for the weak of heart or for those who like to practice more hygienic and clean sex. Scorpios might just rip your clothing off, that is if they to burn holes through you with their gaze.

As far as death, Scorpios are the least afraid of modern medicine, medical procedures and death which they find fascinating. These are the folks who glue themselves to the TV or computer to watch the latest gory mystery. They wouldn't flinch watching gruesome scenes from The Da Vinci Code the way that I did. These folks aren't into covering their eyes when disturbing images emerge. In fact, they get off on it. I think darker movies are made for these folks. Things that gross the rest of us out, don't bother Scorpions so they can work in forensic medicine, at hospices (the more spiritual ones), psychiatric counseling, hypnosis, colon therapy, and deeper religion that focuses on death and rebirth.

Scorpion colors are red, black, and white. Pluto rules Scorpio these days, but Mars ruled Scorpio in classic astrology. Words that describe Scorpio include: Intense, ruthless, passionate, hypnotic, engaging, alluring, smoldering, distant, icy, emotional, vengeful (unfortunately), sharp, and I would include ingenuous since many Scorpions are geniuses--think Bill Gates and Jodie Foster.

Best careers for Scorpio include: Medicine, Forensic medicine, psychiatry, metaphysics, shamanism, detective, artist, movie maker, musician, high tech, counselor, hospice nurse, morgue and funeral director, death counselor, sex counselor, and other helping professions that involve going deep with clients and not flinching from drama, grief and suffering.

Famous Scorpios not already mentioned include: Hilary Clinton, Grace Kelly, Leonard DiCaprio, and George Harrison had his moon in Scorpio. You're in good company.

Message of Transcendance with the Planets Taking Us There (channeled)

photo by Patricia Herlevi
For the past 24 hours I have experienced a channeled message begging to come through. I didn't have access to the internet until now. The messages coming through reflect on the earth's transcendence into a new era starting now. The past and current transits have opened a new portal and the earth sails through it. In sailor's terms, we have hit open seas and a grander shift is inevitable ready or not. 

First, we have the North Node at 0 degrees Libra getting ready to move into Virgo-the Sign of the Servant. And I've spoken about the servant and service before which doesn't suggests that you have to change careers and start cleaning mansions for a living. This type of service is from the heart and you would still follow your passions and use your talents now for the highest good. You would now serve the Oneness of all creation by staying mindful of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, attitudes and actions. We will now hear a lot about right action and right purpose with North Node in Virgo with the South Node in Pisces.

Second, with Neptune and Chiron in Pisces opposing Jupiter and then the North Node, we take our spiritual beliefs and values into our practice. Meaning, we finally get the deeper aspects of the teachings we follow and we download it as wisdom in our daily practice. We walk our talk and those of us who align with humility and integrity find that our wishes and desires manifest as if we are connected always to a flow of synchronicity. We dream about future events and they manifest, but when I say future I use that word lightly because we are living beyond time. There is no past, present and future, just this moment which contains all three. This is why we dream about events that manifest instantaneously. We also experience deja vu and connect with our soul tribes which feel like home or family.

In fact, pay attention to the people coming into your life now. Pay attention to urges to work at a different job or career. Pay attention to urges to travel or relocate. Pay attention to obstacles that block your way from doing that and ask yourself why those obstacles exist in the first place. Do obstacles come from within or without or both places? Are the obstacles present to slow down your process or progress so that you are in the right place at the right time.

Soul mates? Many of you if you haven't already done so, meet your soul mates now, but only if you're at the right frequency because you have done the inner work. Are you someone in and out of therapy or coaching who has done much inner work? Then don't despair because your time is now and as mentioned earlier, there is only now and the feelings currently in your heart. Get in touch with your heart because to know your heart is the greatest wisdom of all and what the masters from all spiritual disciplines preached. Know your heart and know the Universe.

There is a greater sense of Oneness and Unity. So this soul mate idea feels like old news anyway. Everyone is our soul brother or sister. Every creature is connected to the whole. The cosmos are both inside and outside of us and this is why astrology is so powerful. So what's happening to us now on the mundane level?

Instant healing outside of time-space reality is possible. Our bodies tell us what to eat and it's best to listen to our bodies even if the new diet seems counter to what we've been taught by diet gurus and foodistas. You are the best judge of what your body requires based on your unique evolution. Having said that, a trend is underway for eating less grains, that includes eating less gluten-free grains as our digestive systems and all body systems align with higher frequency energies on the planet. Be prepared to eat more vegetables and denser proteins as well as less beans and grains. Sorry, vegans, but we will eat more fish. We will however, eat less flesh from beasts and fowl. And new types of seeds and fruits will emerge that align with your evolving bodies. Plants once considered poison or toxic are now digestible and healthy for us.

Big industries buckle under and many crumble despite their numbers looking good on the stock markets. Don't believe the public relations hype you see in the news about corporate giants. They're on their way down and soon, very soon, we will implement new business models that work from the bottom up and serve the populace while allowing freedom for individuals. Any business model based on competition, lack, limitation or fear is on its way out. And what a timely death that is.

The New Thought movement reaches people on the edges of society with coaches and therapists; teachers and healers reaching out to people on the fringe and teaching them tools for manifestation. Don't be surprised if more homeless people become millionaires and millionaires walk away from wealth to serve the greater good. We will see people in droves volunteer to quit their government and corporate jobs. Meanwhile, younger energies move up to take their places.

The biggest change we will experience especially around the Saturn Neptune square beginning in November and the North Node moving into Virgo and joining with Jupiter also in Virgo is living out of time-space reality. But this doesn't suggest that we indulge in fantasies and escape routes because Saturn asks us to apply discipline and take responsibility for our growth. Saturn also helps us stay within structure so that we don't lose our grounding completely. We call upon our past lineages (both DNA and soul lineages) and complete lessons started in other lifetimes or from our ancestors, usually though on the maternal side of the family.

Finally, children play a greater role now. They bring age old wisdom to the planet and mature more quickly than previous generations. It's like they are starting where they left off in previous lifetimes and they are set to go. These children know what they want to do with their lives. They come with missions and it's up to parents to eliminate distractions from their paths such as pop culture, computer games and anything that causes them to get out of alignment with God or the Source.

More channeling is to come, but this is probably enough for now. And it's not anything new. Other channels have said the same. However, if you're currently listening to darker messages from channels, change the channel. We are ushering in light not more darkness. Blessings.
