Major secrets, conspiracies, and hidden Truths are being uncovered and illuminated this week with Jupiter, the planet of expansion and morality, coming into conjunction with the Sun in intense and mysterious Scorpio! This precedes the activation of Pluto, Scorpio’s ruling planet, by both Venus and Mercury on Friday, adding a revealing layer of depth and intensity to our relationships and communications as we close out the week!
Monday (10/23): Venus in Libra comes into an irritating inconjunct aspect with Neptune in Pisces today— a transit that favors creativity, spirituality, compassion and empathy. This transit can bring many gifts, but not without some difficulty. There can be a tendency toward idealism, fantasy, delusion and escapism, especially when it comes to our close personal relationships. This is a time when the rose-colored glasses come on and we may be unable to see the reality of our relationship dynamics. Boundary issues almost always come up when Neptune is involved in an inconjunct aspect, and with Venus in the mix our boundaries in our relationships (as well as financial matters) may be tested— showing us where our boundaries have previously become too loose or too rigid. Overindulgence in beauty, aesthetics, and sensory pleasures can compel us to lose sight of love, compassion and connectedness in favor of our pursuing our own desires. The best use of this energy is to channel it into spiritual exploration and creative projects in partnership with others.
Tuesday (10/24): Mercury in Scorpio comes into a harmonious trine with Neptune in Pisces today, increasing our ability to see behind the veils and helping us to become more compassionate and loving in our communication. This is an excellent aspect for diving deep in order to see things far beyond the surface level. Our communications can become fantastical and our minds may wander to far-away places as daydreams become much more powerful and productive. This aspect favors creative solutions and communicating the Truth in a way that is considerate and gentle. This is also an excellent time for creative writing, journaling, and spiritual exploration.
Wednesday (10/25): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is waxing in the pragmatic and responsible sign of Capricorn throughout the day today.
Thursday (10/16): The Sun in Scorpio comes into conjunction with Jupiter today! This aspect highlights the year-long transit of Jupiter through Scorpio in a big way! Pay attention to what comes up for you today in terms of secrets, taboo topics and deep Truths that are being revealed, as this will give a clue into what’s coming up for you throughout the next 12+ months! Today is a day when things that have been hidden below the surface for far too long will be revealed and illuminated! The Truth cannot stay hidden under this influence, which is beneficial for research and intense psychological work of any kind! The Sun conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio brings our hidden fears up to the surface and shows us that the things we have repressed, buried and cast out really weren’t that scary to begin with! This optimistic energy is active throughout most of the week and brings many benefits, especially to those with Sun/Moon/Rising in the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)!
