October 27

8:38 PM PT – New Moon at 4° of Scorpio

Mars in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn, both at 15°

Sun in Scorpio opposing Uranus Rx in Taurus, both at 4° (technically occurring on October 28, a few hours after the New Moon)

It is up to us to break the spells that keep us asleep to our own magic. There are a million of them. From the systemic, to the familial, to the cultural, to the personal. And back again. We are repeatedly told to quell our nature and conform. 

The most unnatural thing of all.

Systems that perpetuate injustice don’t want us to know ourselves. They don’t want us to accept ourselves as we are because when we do, we aren’t very good consumers, patriots, or parrots. How can we tow the line when we are able to draw our own? How can we be controlled when we refuse anyone else’s narrative of our personhood or potential? How can those in power extract our talent for their profit if we take ourselves off the market?

Scorpio Season situates us deeply within these questions. As the faster moving planets sink into Scorpio’s waters, they alert us to the shadows that lurk in the landscapes of our lives. Which thieves steal our agency? Which monsters lurk just out of sight, scaring us out of realizing the fullness of our impact? What power do we give our fears and how does doing so hold our potential hostage? 

The New Moon in Scorpio arrives on October 27. In Scorpio, the moon struggles to build a home and hearth that is reliable, calm, and comforting. In Scorpio, the moon must deal with intense emotions that we are more likely to suppress. Here, catharsis won’t quit and stability isn’t a seasoning used much, if at all. In these realms we must acknowledge, so that we can confront, the bullies of our lives. 

Opposing Uranus in Taurus, the Sun and Moon asks us to interrupt whatever unhelpful patterns have become entrenched in our days. It’s a loud start to the lunar cycle. A Cher-in-Moonstruck-snap-out-of-it moment. An ode to choosing what’s real instead of what’s easy. 

In Scorpio this New Moon has depth. Reaching into the recesses of our emotional reserves, it aims to help us get in touch with feelings long forgotten. Stirred by the opposition to Uranus, something in us gets shaken loose. The truth gets set free, and will grant us the same when we accept it. 

With Mars, traditional ruler of this New Moon, in a tough square to Saturn on the same day, the New Moon comes with a warning. Do your work. Conserve your energy for the most important of your projects. Honor the mysteries of life. Let your self-esteem be rooted in your ability to confront life’s most challenging moments as much as it is rooted in your ability to celebrate the most joyous of them.

October 29

Mercury conjunct Venus at 27° of Scorpio

As Mercury stations retrograde, it cuddles up to Venus who offers it a blessing before descending to the underworld. The offering is love, honest connection, and depth of feeling. Today’s astrology is preparing us for Mercury retrograde’s recall of what we’ve lost, what and who we are grieving, and those whose lives made ours so much richer for having known them. This transit sends us messages of love from the past, from folks we haven’t spoken to in a while, or from the deep recesses of our dm’s. Today is a good day to express your love and appreciation for others. If you feel it, let them know it. 

October 31

Mercury stations retrograde at 27° of Scorpio; will station direct at 11° of Scorpio on November 20, 2019

Please check back for a special Samhain/Mercury retrograde update!

November 1

Venus enters Sagittarius and will be there until November 25, 2019

This may well be one of the greatest little gifts of 2019. As Venus soars through the open roads of Sagittarius, it shares space with its current ruler, Jupiter. Both planets bring blessings, but together, they bring a cornucopia of them. Making a conjunction on November 24th, the part of your chart that contains Sagittarius is super-powered and should be enjoyed and worked with. 

*Re-read about it here through the lens of Jupiter’s transit through Sagittarius  and note that anything here that resonates will be greatly encouraged by Venus’s transit. Anything that has been challenging will receive a little help from Venus, and possibly a resolution with greater ease in this area of your life.

November 5

Mars in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn at 20°

The last of the challenging aspects in Libra (for now), Mars makes an epic square to Pluto. The epitome of a power struggle, the areas of your chart that contain Libra and Capricorn are used to this dynamic, but this may be the most intense version of it. Closure comes, but not without meditating deeply on the nature of the conflicts that occur have occurred for you. Just remember that to win doesn’t always mean to be right. This transit calls for compromise and the ability to balance your needs with the needs of the moment.  

November 8

Sun in Scorpio sextiles Saturn in Capricorn, both at 15°

Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune in Rx in Pisces, both at 16°

Saturn in Capricorn sextiles Neptune Rx in Pisces, both at 16°

Today’s astrology is helpful, imaginative, healing, inspiring, and structurally creative. It asks us to build the framework for our dreams to become a reality. It asks us to commit to the fantasies that relentlessly ask us to make them into something tangible. It fills our cups with the richly flavored wine of the season. Drink up and enjoy the earthy notes and intoxicating impact.  

November 9

Mercury Rx in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, both at 20°

Mercury’s review is assisted by Pluto’s ability to plumb the depths. Here, introspection leads to realizations. Don’t let your day get overwhelmed with side-tracking nonsense. If there was ever a moment to focus on the communications at hand, this is it. Be present and you’ll be the recipient of many gifts.  

November 11

Mercury Rx makes its inferior conjunction to the sun at 18° Scorpio 

Today, Mercury Rx leads us right into the heart of the matter. Secrets get revealed, hidden masterpieces get discovered, motivations get uncovered. Because this year Mercury’s transit of the sun is visible (appearing as a little black dot that moves over the face of the sun), the magic of what is mysterious gets revealed for us to work with. These are more than mere sleight of hand tricks, these are moves that only masters know. Whatever you are learning about working with the more challenging aspects of the human psyche, healing the wounds of your lineage, or working through what generally feels too challenging is helped. Pay attention to the wisdom you are getting let in on. 

 

Aries & Aries Rising

I cast spells for my mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical healing. I ask for help from the souls, energies, and guides that surround me. I know that I am flanked by a hundred helpful beings that await my request for their aid. Reaching out to them reminds me that I am not alone. Making the connection reminds me that my actions are tied to those from my past, to those in my present, and impacting those in my future. 

I know that when I am called on, it’s more than just me that shows up. I am the inheritance of every blessing of those that birthed me, and I am committed to healing the wounds that they couldn’t, making right the impact of wrong-doing they committed. 

No one can do what I do because no one is who I am. No one has the job that I have. No one has the help that I do. With this New Moon, I release myself from the fears and fantasies of scarcity. Imposter syndrome ceases to exist when I honor my unique gifts and get to work on developing them. Knowing I am enough is enough to change everything.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

I cast spells for abundance between us. I know that when I am able to show up with honesty, boundaries, and the ability to honor my needs and yours, we can create cornucopias of pleasure and possibility together. 

I call on the spirits of accountability and radical honesty to help us on our path. I ask the Goddesses of Understanding, Compassion, and Insight to help us heal whatever rifts have disrupted our connections. I ask for clarity in regards to all aspects of my part of the process. I ask for courage as I encounter the parts of my personality I have yet to heal. I ask for kindness when addressing the more underdeveloped parts of my heart. I ask for the ability to laugh at myself in the process. 

I know that fear will have me lashing out against what’s good but unfamiliar to me at times. I know that in certain places my wiring needs rerouting. Life has crumpled me here and squashed me there and instead of feeling the need to hide it from others or deny it completely, I am asking for help in holding it in its totality.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

I cast spells that help me be more efficient with my magic. While at work I might need to be undercover, but it doesn’t mean my powers are any less effective. Muggles might be oblivious to my ways, their systems might cast me into roles ill-suited for my sorcery, but I don’t let it phase me.  

I run circles around whomever underestimates me. I shine in situations where my gifts are a surprise to those that never saw me coming. 

With this New Moon, I cast spells that help me understand the power of the tools I have at my disposal. Without understanding them, I am more likely to let the world dictate what I can and can’t do with them. I refuse to get caught up in the small-minded ways of out-dated dinosaurs, but I don’t waste too much energy arguing with them either. I refocus my mind on getting better; communicating with co-workers so that my words have a greater impact; delivering work early with greater depth than anyone knew was possible; conserving my energy when possible; minding my business as regularly as I go to the water cooler. 

Witches know when to be visible and when to cloak themselves in protective spells. My wand is at the ready, my incantations at the tip of my tongue, and my cauldron is kept full of the potions that keep me calm and on course no matter the mishaps.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

With this New Moon, I cast the spells that unlock my creativity. While in the sacred space of the studio, I release myself from the confines of any cultural norms. I go back to my wild roots. I tap into the part of my humanity that existed before ownership. Before divisions. Before accusations of being a heretic. Before the hallucinations of human superiority. 

From the dirt, from the ashes, the indestructible force that is nature will always rise. It’s with this wisdom that I align. 

I remember that nakedness is needed in order to create. I know the necessity of being vulnerable; to be touched is to be known. I can’t have any boundary between me and my concupiscence if I want to know and own my power.

I work with this New Moon to rid myself of any false notions of respectability. There are some aspects of self that should never be tamed. No tail between my legs when I have the red clay of my life in my hands. I need not be ashamed of the shape of the life that I desire. I need not refuse the textures that draw me to them. I needn’t cover up the scent of what I find irresistable. Sterilization strips the nutrients from the fruit, and I intend on eating it whole.

Leo & Leo Rising

I cast spells to heal my bloodline. I cast spells to help lift me out of resentment and into repair. I cast spells to comfort the child within me that didn’t get what they needed. 

I can’t go back in time, but I can shapeshift my life so that my needs are central in it. 

I work with this New Moon to set up a home base that leaves space for the things that bring me solace, the things that lift my spirits, and the things that ground me in the truth. Throughout Scorpio Season, I’ll be given many opportunities to review my past, review my foundations, and review the benefits and losses of building my life where I have. In order to create a home, in order to create a place to not only exist, but to thrive in the world, I make sure that I know where I have dropped my anchor. I investigate the soil I am placed upon, making sure that it has the nutrients I need to grow these seeds I am sowing.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

I cast spells with every word uttered. With every word written. With every sentiment whispered to myself. My mind is a place of magic making. My communications create pathways for healing to find me. My ability to tune into the transmissions that are trying to get to me makes all the difference on my journey. I clear space in my days to listen. I make a habit out of getting quiet. I make it part of my routine to reroute myself towards the rituals that cleanse me of doubts only meant to distract me. 

I pay attention to any and all mysterious notes of affirmation, caution, and concern that come to me. I remember that my life is always speaking to me. To tune into the conversation is a skill I challenge myself to develop. To attend to its messages is to tend to the central flame of my life. Refusing the sentiments of the world that would render me feeling powerless can only be done if I’m attuned to myself first. It’s from this place that I know what is a false claim about me or an honest reflection of all I need to work on and all I am capable of growing into.

Libra & Libra Rising

With this New Moon, I cast the spells that reawaken me to my power. I know that it’s easy to forget my impact in a world that belittles decency and withholds equality. I know that I need to reclaim the value of my assets so that I don’t forget the potency of what I’m working with.

Witches know that there is no competition when we all get a chance to work our magic. Witches know that every single spell for liberation and love needs to be cast in as many languages as possible. In all corners of the world. In every iteration, tradition, and texture they can come in. Every coven is counted in the repairing of the world. With this New Moon, I cast spells that remind me I need not waste my energy playing into the Patriarchy’s game of divide and conquer. I am here to create and coexist, destroying any myth that gets in the way of doing so.

I know that my resources need replenishing periodically and I take this moment to investigate what I’m low on, what needs weeding out, and what I can let be dormant for a moment. I stock up on the supplies I need to do the spell work necessary for this moment. I know that what I conjure up will become a reality, so I do so carefully. Considering all I wish to serve, I create every potion with all of the care that I possess.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

I cast spells for my renewal. I know that it takes courage to shed a skin. I’m told not to age. I’m told not to wear. Not to tear. Not to let it show.  

But to grow older is to deepen. 

To grow is to say goodbye to who I was if it was getting in the way of becoming more myself. Nothing in this realm gets to live a full life without being marked by it. Nothing in this world gets to be any good without the ripening only years, tears, and effort can bring. 

It is a privilege to be stamped by time.

I cast spells that banish the brainwashing that ageism would have me fear. I cast spells to unlearn what helped me in my youth but keeps me from maturing. I cast spells so that I focus more on getting to the new skin and have the courage to let the old go. I take myself off layer by layer. Each title, each position, each point of pride is nothing compared to the brilliance of my birthday suit. 

With this New Moon, I remember who I am and who I won’t care about being come my last breath. I refocus my energy on the most honest version of me and let myself be reborn from this place.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising 

I cast spells of regeneration. Like a snake shedding its skin I need to let the old go in peace and in private. I need caves to dream in. The dark to receive visions in. The quiet to come back to myself in.

With this New Moon, I gather myself. Listen to myself. Connecting to my creative wisdom requires that I step back from the distractions for a spell. Much magic can be done when I focus on what my intuition is trying to tell me. I need never look further for direction than my gut. My instincts are my compass. The flashes of insight that visit me are my blueprints. The review process that I am in is deep and necessary. I can’t get to the truth unless I get to the bottom of my feelings about it. I allow myself time to sort through a situation, problem, or potential opportunity. I know that the more willing I am to be thorough, the more likely I am to discover mysteriously placed emails, note pads, vision boards, and messages from the past that got buried, but perfectly detail the work I need to do going forward. It might not look like it to the outside world, but what I am working on behind the scenes has the kind of sorcery that will make the world wonder how I could have possibly pulled this off. 

Witches will know, but the rest will wonder in vain.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

I cast spells for our collective healing. I can’t hold the whole world and all its pain, but I can hold the people that make mine turn. I know that each person in my orbit has other galaxies that they transit through. I know that the roots of my friendships can stretch across the entire globe. Loving the people that are close is loving those that are far. 

Wide is the power that we hold collectively.  

I practice the magic of making an effort with those I love. I brew teas that strengthen the connections between us. I light a candle for their well-being, bless their projects, and promote their hopes and dreams. 

I know that a witch’s health is dependent on that of their coven’s. I know that my magic grows stronger when I feel part of a community that wants all life here to thrive. I know that love is the secret language that sets our collective power free. 

I work with this New Moon to understand all the ways in which I succeed and flounder at friendship. I make an honest effort to clean up my communication issues. I review the relationship dynamics that contain the most difficult but also the most rewarding lessons. I make sure I am being fair with myself, and everyone else, in the process. Starting with my part in the situation is one thing that I can always do to tend to my present quality of life and our collective future one.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

I cast spells for catapulting my career to the next level. I know that doing so requires that I dig in deep. Reviewing my reasons often. Replenishing my resources always. Relying on my ability to be honest with myself will save me from a lifetime spent accomplishing in vain. Being reflective will save me from doing things to escape the feelings I don’t know how to process. Being able to admit when I am working from a place of pain and unconsciousness will save me from trying to numb out with success or accolades that aren’t tied to my passion and my purpose.  

I know that the more I sink into my power, the more I understand my responsibility.  

I work with this New Moon to better understand how I can make space in the world for a little more healing. I know that my intentions to grow through the work I do in the world will automatically make space for more of the same. I know that it takes time to see results. I know that it takes many seasons to bear fruit. I know that magic is about connecting to how something feels from the inside, to the intuitive, to the dream realm, to the visions that visit me before I expect to see any of it manifested in the world. I trust the timing of my life and in doing so I place my magic where it makes the most impact.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Rituals work. Whatever I do repeatedly not only marks my life but shapes it. What I do daily either centers my mind on the mystery or leaves me to battle the monsters of it with no recourse. 

With this New Moon I cast spells that keep me anchored in my magic daily. I know that the more committed I am to working with the elements, the more I am able to be in dialogue with them. Much as I may try to be, I am not in control of life. I am in relationship to it. I focus my energy here. I honor the changing seasons of my successes and failures by knowing which candles to light, which prayers to utter, which spirits to petition, and how to let all feelings, no matter how murky, have a space on my altar. I know that at times when I feel alone, when the ranting and raving of my inner demons kick up and swirl around my days, I need to turn to the company of my ancestors and guides. Even if no one in my bloodline can be called upon, those that left me writings, paintings, films, and the kinds of theses that fill my heart with hope when it needs it, can be called upon. 

I know that the right poem for the moment is a potion with incredible magic. I know that the right song for this season is a blessing from the gods that I can always call on. I know that the right images can reorient my mind towards what is real: the power of art; the power of a heart unafraid to love; the power of my ability to recenter myself repeatedly no matter what my days bring.
