Thursday morning’s Moon in Cancer connects with nebulous Neptune which supports creative imagination and could correlate with day-dreamy challenges in focusing on practical matters. We could also find ourselves wading through some anger in the morning which might further distract us from our own best interests. Staying on track with ourselves and our important goals could require some dogged determination, yet as the day progresses, we’re likely to reap the rewards of those efforts. And though our current situations continue to ask that we soldier on, it simply isn’t personal. Nurturing ourselves through a reasonably productive day could actually provide a healthy release of lethargic, resentful or resistant energies.

Today, cosmic gears shift and we could begin to look towards the horizon with some sense of hopefulness when planet Mercury, the communicator, crosses into Sagittarian terrain. Affirming positively and having faith in our lives and our paths could be easier now and could also be very beneficial for our spirits. We could get ahead of ourselves if we go rushing forward with exciting adventures all at once but it’s a good day to name or jot down new goals and energizing possibilities to aim for so we can return to them when we can – especially since the afternoon’s energy could distract us with myriad important details and communications that still remain for us to address.

Hallelujah – this evening, planet Mars officially finishes its retrograde journey as it stations and turns direct after 2 months which correlated with strenuous, protracted efforts where progress was often extremely hard earned and in some areas, we might have lost ground or were just plain blocked. Mars will need time to regain speed and ground but will not turn retrograde again for another 2 years. See post below from Sept 9, and September 15 blog post discussing the Mars retrograde cycle. It could be interesting to look at calendars for July 26, 2020 to see where you were and what you were hoping to accomplish then as it’s likely that anything you’re still striving to get done now, you actually began around that time. Luckily when you started, you might not have known how long these projects would actually take! It’s important to congratulate yourself on the courage, strength and just plain gumption in getting to those goals and working hard even through anger, frustration and delays. And, if possible, continue to take note of the ways in which the hard work and efforts of others contributed to any successes – because one of the challenges of a Mars retrograde cycle is the ongoing and experience where it “seems” like we’ve been left to our own devices to make things happen. Whew.
As you can likely feel, there’s still plenty to do and communicating with others could take on increased intensity this afternoon when the Moon in passionate Scorpio connects with communicator Mercury, still regaining its ground after its recent retrograde phase! Any unexpected news tonight will probably not be a total surprise and just maybe -perhaps- might have some welcome aspects to it as the Moon moves opposite defiant, irregular Uranus.

Saturday, October 31, 2020 – Happy Full Moon Halloween! It’s been approximately 80 years since we had a full Moon on Halloween and today’s full Moon joins with revolutionary Uranus while both move opposite to the Sun in Scorpio. This full Moon also precedes tomorrow’s astronomical event where an asteroid the approximate size of a refrigerator collides with the Earth’s atmosphere before it explodes into much smaller fragments. According to Neil deGrasse Tyson, this explosion ought not disrupt any of Earth’s power grids, yet this somewhat rare and interestingly timed event fits the Uranian symbolism quite nicely, where events that seem unexpected and rare highlight and punctuate life’s memorable moments. These events can correlate with Uranian wake-up calls to remind us that we are part of much bigger living systems of energies and that actually, if we’re paying attention, scientists have known this asteroid has been heading our way for awhile now. Ahem, similarly, scientists, represented by Uranus, are telling us that climate change is real and that it’s a matter of time before the next virus comes.
This full Moon features the Moon in pragmatic Taurus, awakened by Uranus, bringing the steady, consistent, common sense wisdom of all that is natural and real to bear against the deep Scorpio drives for power and transformation. As my Taurus grandmother was known to say, “it turns out common sense is not so common.” Nevertheless, at this time it’s critical to ask, and keep asking, does this make sense? Does it make sense for me to keep going on this path? Does it make sense for me to participate and keep my head clear and stay in the game? This full Moon is extremely powerful and persevering and innovative. It could awaken, refresh and bring great strength, honesty, determination and clarity to the fore in order to embrace and engage in a sensible yet profound call to power and change.
Taurus wisdom knows that denying reality is clearly not a workable strategy, so we can choose instead to lean into its awakened strength and innate honesty that says plainly and simply that two + two does not =5 and this is not a matter of opinion. Taurus energy is often placid, preferring peace and quiet over tumult and chaos. Yet, when Taurus energy determines and accepts that it really does make sense to take action, like its symbol the bull, it can be extremely strong and work quite hard to accomplish almost anything it sets out to do. Taurus energy is also strong and grounded enough to hold true to basic, foundational principles when others are all too ready to throw the baby out with the bath water. In fact, Taurus energy enlivened by Uranus, can stare down corruption and distortion without getting pulled into extremes, false arguments and over-reactions. So, in our individual lives, this is a time to understand and accept that change is being called for and to ask ourselves what are we willing to do about that?
Taurus wisdom is the quiet wisdom that lives in one’s bones and, on a societal level, it truly understands the simple, beautiful Uranian concepts of genuine democracy: freedom, equality, independence, community, civic-mindedness and that “democracy is a verb.” Uranus in Taurus remembers that democracy is of the people, by the people and FOR THE PEOPLE and therefore, it simply does not buy into the lie that being for the people = socialism. Similarly, Taurus wisdom remembers the lessons of the 20th century and believes that socialism cannot be allowed to replace democracy – nor can fascism. Taurus wisdom also plainly sees that a strong economy is essential and includes a healthy labor market and that what must be weeded out from our governmental systems are unrestrained capitalism and extreme corporate greed and their undue influence and unfettered infiltration into the US government over the last 40 years since Saturn last conjoined Pluto. Taurus wisdom understands when it is important to let go of distraction and go back to “basics” and in this case, Uranus in Taurus suggests that the vehicle and levers for restoring a healthy democracy are contained in democracy itself – driven first and foremost by an informed, voting citizenry (Uranus) that can and must ultimately make democracy and equality accessible to everyone – which is in everyone’s best interest as time runs out for the climate/environment – also a Taurus domain. The Earth (Taurus) is CLEARLY signaling that climate change is real and again, does it make sense to deny the science?
Awakened Taurus is a welcome addition to Scorpio’s love of intensity, power and transformation and is needed in order to stand strong and make a difference. At its essence, Scorpio energy seeks intensity and is therefore willing to put skin in the game, get involved, unearth and face uncomfortable truths in order to correctly hold power and affect change as part of the ongoing mysterious and powerful cycles of birth, death and regeneration. These full Moon energies can be viewed as a call to GET REAL and put a stop to the abuses of distorted, dysfunctional expressions of Scorpio energies that covet and seize power simply to dominate, engorge, and win without any regard for the costs or damage inflicted.

Mercury Retrograde 2020
There is one more Mercury retrograde cycle this year, 10/13 – 11/3* The year’s first two Mercury Retrograde cycles were 2/16 – 3/9 and 6/17 – 7/1.
A Mercury Retrograde Cycle is neither intrinsically good nor bad. It’s a 3 week cycle that occurs three times a year for approximately 3 weeks. During this period of time the planet Mercury appears appears to be moving backward from the Earth’s vantage point.
Since Mercury appears to be retracing its path through the heavens, it can be beneficial to revisit, review, rethink where we have been — It’s a great time to have a personal, intuitive reading to support your process of reviewing and reflecting and preparing for what’s next! Please email for pricing and to schedule your private reading firstname.lastname@example.org
Often, during Mercury Retrograde Cycles, clear perspective is lacking, needed information is missing, important details could be over-looked and delays, glitches or breakdowns occur. Paying extra attention to details and allowing extra time for travel, meetings, errands and commitments can help decrease the stress of any snafus.
Mercury retrogrades can also reflect upsets with your instruments of communication and travel. Cars, computers, phones, appliances might act up or break down completely. If you travel, allow extra time and reconfirm your reservations. Consider going somewhere you’ve already been.
*11/3 is election day – in 2000 Bush/Gore election, Mercury also stationed on election day!
*Please note: our goal is to describe the astrology energies expressing for that day regardless of your astrology sign. We hope this information might be useful to offer additional perspective to the day. Sometimes we can’t post everyday and, as always, this is our perspective only. For more personalized information, please consider a private reading.
