October 31 – November 20
27 degrees Scorpio back to 11 degrees Scorpio
I have already been wrestling with mischievous Mercury in all kinds of super annoying ways but I know it’s just the cosmos’s way of reminding me that the things I often obsess about and feel like I need to control are for naught. I do the best I can within the confines of this dimension and when that gets too frustrating I take a giant step outside my mind and get creative! Check out my latest flower video: aunt irene’s marigolds on The Flower Channel. Take a sweet respite in the summer garden which, in the snowfest that’s happening in my yard, is but a distant, lingering memory.
The New Moon of this past weekend has stirred up some energy, no doubt about that. Fires raging in California and who knows what madness playing out in our government, it is never a dull moment on this evolving planet. Sometimes it’s hard to really get your head around how important it is to work on your own inner sanctuary of peace and trust as things seem to be exploding all around us. But that is exactly our assignment at this time of massive shifts – to use all our metaphysical tools to calm, center, and ground yourself in the midst of whirling energies. That is why you chose to incarnate at this time – to be part of the shift. No matter what chaos is playing out, you can mitigate the effects by holding a space of inner knowing that all is unfolding in perfection and you hold the power to ride this wave any way you like – with panic and distrust or surrendering to the ride and enjoying every wild moment of it.
And just when you thought it might be safe to peek out through the veil of chaos –
Mercury turns retrograde this week for a 3 week re-visiting journey through Scorpio.
Mercury stations retrograde on October 31 and will be moving retrograde from 27 degrees Scorpio back to 11 degrees Scorpio. Mercury will station direct on November 20.
