Scorpio Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars Dominion

When the answers aren't obvious...

When I woke up today, the first thing I thought to do was read my tea leaves. This is not something I normally think to do, so it was totally random...but of course being who I am, I trust everything has a reason, so I accordingly did as I must...and so it went...

As for how to do it? You make a cup of tea with loose leaves and when you are almost done drinking it, with about 1/8 of an inch left of tea, you swirl your cup around and think of whatever you want to ask. I always like it to be more general, as it beats me what I should know most of the time...and you can swirl left or you can swirl right. Some tea readers have rules, I prefer to think it's all about your concentration...So anyway, after you are doing swirling (when ever you feel you are done), the tea leaves will settle at the bottom and sides of the cup in various formations...gently pour the rest of the tea out and then read away!

As for what I found in my cup, here are the results...
Please let me know what you see and what you predict from the images!

Sun enters Scorpio

The mystery begins...

Feel the glamorous vibe of Scorpio, the 8th sign of the zodiac and the ruler of sex, power, transformation and secrets...

From wikipedia:
Daughters of Darkness (1971, Belgian, in English, directed by Harry Kümel):
A recently married young couple, Stefan (John Karlen) and Valerie (Daniele Ouimet), are on their honeymoon. They check into a grand hotel on the Ostend seafront in Belgium, intending to catch the cross-channel ferry to England. It is off-season, so the couple are alone in the hotel. Alone, that is, until the sun sets and a mysterious Hungarian countess, Elizabeth Báthory (Delphine Seyrig) arrives in a vintage Bristol driven by her 'secretary' Ilona (Andrea Rau). The middle-aged concierge at the hotel swears that he saw the Countess at the same hotel when he was a little boy - but concludes he must be mistaken, since she doesn't look a day older than she did back then. The countess quickly becomes obsessed with the newlyweds, and the resulting interaction...

Full Moon in Aries, Blue Moon

Once in a lifetime...

Tonight's blue moon is the second full moon in Aries to happen in a month--an occurrence that typically happens on average about 37 times per century (the blue moon part, not the specific Aries part). This year even began with a blue moon on New Year's Eve, making this second new moon even more extraordinary. Plus, astrologically the first full moon within this month was at 0 degrees of Aries, while this one was at 29 degrees of Aries, which represents an entire cycle! So, with all this magic, it is imperative to hone this energy to sending out sweetness into the universe and opening yourself for new adventures. If you get a chance to, focus on the full moon at it's apex at 9:37 pm EST tonight and make your wish. If you miss it, no worries, stare at this picture of the moon at its peak and concentrate on your dreams at the same time, as it's the mediation that matters in helping the universe steer your to your destiny!

Mercury enters Scorpio

When saying less is more.

Scorpios can be total whack jobs when it comes to communicating. Whatever they feel is too personal tends to be highly subjective and particularly bizarre. One day they might throw skeletons from their closet left and right at you, the next they can get disproportionally upset if you ask them their shoe size. Which ever mood you might catch them in is also a toss up, as there is always some convoluted method of logic to their madness that goes deep into their past in some shape or form. With this sign, nothing is ever light!

...So, as this energy takes control of the communications planet, plan ahead as it might take you some extra time to read in-between the lines, as not much of anything will be too obvious for the next few weeks (until Nov. 18th to be exact)...My advice, to get yourself safely through it: say less to mean more, as it's all about maneuvering whomever or whatever you are playing to your advantage by having them make all the moves, good and bad, as ultimately, it all has to come out anyway and best to see what you have to work with before you lift a finger.

Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio

When your instincts are telling you to run, but all you want do is stay.

Venus retrograde in Scorpio has been scaring me for some time now. Since I knew it was coming and know what its all about (emotional deja-vu, exes returning, feelings change, anything that gives you pleasure can go wrong), I of course hyped myself more than I needed to and caused more of a meltdown than necessary.

I thought all sorts of crazy scenarios; going down too many romantic memory lanes that I'd have thought by now should of been such a bust that I'd know it would be a complete waste of time to even wonder, "What if?" ... Of course, shortly I started to feel in second-guessing myself...but duh, I was just working myself up more than I had to, because when the day actually came, I felt nothing, but relief! I don't know what exactly I was expecting, but I was fearing some sort of emotional apocalypse...

Thankfully, because I did my purging early on, and so much of it, as soon as the day hit, I felt something I didn't expect: liberated and hopeful! Seems that dragging myself all over my sordid past made me so over it that I ironically was excited about the future, as in being surprised by romance again! Yes, a total shock, as this retrograde brought me back to that place devoid of the bitterness I picked up through the years and where I could see and feel a giddiness once again.

Yes, in short, this was a small miracle and taught me an important lesson: retrogrades aren't necessarily meant to be punishments, but renaissances! So, to make this Venus in retrograde period that lasts until November 18, 2010 worth your while, consider the following areas in your life and what you use to feel about it and where you are now, then work on bridging that gap back to when idealism still ruled...

Aries (March 21-April 19)- Sex

Taurus (April 20- May 20)- Commitments

Gemini (May 21- June 20- Traditions 

Cancer (June 21-July 22)-

Leo (July 23- August 22)- Family 

Virgo (August 23- September 22)-

Libra (September 23- October 22)-

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)-
Personal fulfillment

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)-

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Aquarius (January 20-February 1
9) Power 

Pisces (February
20-March 20) Truth

New Moon in Libra

Let the good times roll!

I love Libras, but the one thing I can say for them is that I have yet to meet one that can be on time to save them. No matter, their jovial attitudes and charming way with language doesn't make holding a grudge with them possible. After all, Libras tend to be just that popular and just that busy that sometimes it is hard to stay on track...and so when the sky is under this influence of Libra, you just have to go with it and forget any consequences, other than being in the moment...hence this super late post...You know it, once this day rolled around, life as I knew it was no longer quite the same, as the see-saw tilted the other way and there was no more time to get mopey, as there are just too many celebrations, conversations, flirtations and adventures to be had! If I even blinked an eye I would of missed another opp, so forget even slowing down now and keep it moving for the next two weeks under this celestial influence! 

New moon in Libra theme song, turn it up and dance!

Mercury enters Libra


Lately, my faith in astrology has been deflating and I've been wondering if I am actually a high functioning crazy person. While I do totally stick to believing in the personality traits, I am not feeling the predictive side to it these days...and it's not like I don't know how it works. I know it's not about getting things on a silver platter, it's about working within a system of timing and bringing about the best results. While it's not 100%, to an extent I would of have thought with all the efforts I have put out so far, there would be something that would give...but NO!

Sure, I get that life is not all about rainbows and unicorns, with everything happening in the happiest way at the precise moment, but I have never gone this long without something new and exciting happening in certain areas in my life...and dang, this year has been no walk in the park!!! ...too many teasers, as in opportunities that get busted at the most exhausting times...Even today, with this so-anticipated Venus and Mars alignment in Scorpio hitting my natal moon to almost the exact degree, it was so much more filled with lacklusterness than lust that I didn't even have the energy to gossip about it--and that is coming from a Gemini rising!

Anywhoo, it's not like I've given up, yet...So, despite what might or might not be happening, I still see the validity in astrology, at the least as a universal schedule of assignments to take to task in some way or another, even if it brings no lucky breaks...because at the least, it can provoke thought, right? ...Ha ha, this was soo spoke like someone with Mercury that just entered her 12th house, the house of the subconscious, blind faith and victimization...

...So, to make this post not just about me whining, here is a fab movie to bring on that Mercury in Libra mellow, cool and peaceful vibe: Baraka... Watch it in the bathtub with treats and dim lights, just like I did. It'll totally do the trick.
