Planet Power: Oct. 24 - 30, 2013

Welcome to the sign of Scorpio, where we study the fruit of our meditations on the regenerating mysteries of life and death. My departed mother came to me under this very pomegranate tree, and presented me with the apples of her experience. In a strong voice, she answered my questions concerning life and death. She said, “You are guided, my son,” reminding me that even though I feel like everyone’s father, I’m also everyone’s child. And then she said, “When death is nothing, nothing is nothing. Finally, we are free.” This be the truth, from my mother and me.

SCORPIO (10.22-11.20) It can’t be good… Well, perhaps in potential? Right now, for you, everything’s a question mark…? Gather only information. Tell ’em you’re solely on vacation, with a holy destination. Now is not the time to show off any of your prestidigitation. Review, redirect, re-inspect, and reject the heck out of what you expect. Potentialize only ’til after November 10th, when Mercury, the planet of communication, moves direct once again in early Scorpio. Keep your sense of humor. For you, anything that can mess up — will.

SAGITTARIUS (11.21-12.20) On Friday the 25th, around 3:30 in the afternoon, you can catch a boon. Is it your house, your mom, a rai$e, a trip, or a slip of the lip at work from some jerk? Jupiter’s conjuncted by the Moon, in trine with Mercury retrograde. Check any and all communications for accuracy and verification.

CAPRICORN (12.21-1.18) Your ruler Saturn dwells at around 13° Scorpio during the New Moon in Scorpio, at dawn on November 3rd. What does the number “13” mean to you? It’s always been my favorite. It was also a favorite of the Maya. It symbolizes Kali, the mistress/consort/Tantrika of the 3rd aspect of divinity, known as Shiva. This is the Kali Yuga (age); thus, the unstoppable/emerging/growing power of our yin sisters. The social and cultural growth of humanity is realized through the hands of women. It’s all for them. What’s all that got to do with you? We’ll know when it’s through — but will you?

AQUARIUS (1.19-2.17) If you are not yet a “leader,” then it’s time to find one to follow. Check out and copy any and all tricks they may possess, and then guess the rest. Gather all the support you can get around you, and then, when the moment’s right, rebel (wait ’til after November 10th) and send ’em right back to the hell they came from before they started bossing you around.

PISCES (2.18-3.19) Please read Sagittarius. But in your case (your 5th House, instead of the 12th), any “mistakes” work for you. You are about to be visited by some one/relative from your past. They’ve got something to tell you; but it might not be true (for you). 

ARIES (3.20-4.18)  You can expect your new assignment/agenda next Tuesday, the 29th, around 3:00 p.m. Hope you’re not afraid of work… Make sure you’re clear on the financing, and perhaps you should expect an unexpected, older, undercover lover? It won’t work out in the long term — of course they never do — so you might as well just enjoy it for the short-lived duration of a/your 3-week vacation.

TAURUS (4.19-5.19) How’s your newfound freedom? Lonely? Yeah, from what I’ve heard, this winter you’ll still need your herd. With Venus in Sagittarius ’til after November 3rd, you’re free a bird. A phoenix, a peacock, a griffin, an insightful eagle or an older Scorpio may have the high, holy word. Listen with an open mind and a pure heart. That’ll leave (only) the real you.

GEMINI (5.20-6.19) Yeah, I’ve heard all your complaints. I’ve heard ’em all before…and I’ve got to suppose that I’ll hear ’em all again. What else is new? And yeah, it’s still all your fault, once again! You know, the people that complain that you’re combing your hair too much are the same people who’ll complain that your hair “ain’t combed right.” You’re lucky you’re so lovable and cute!

CANCER (6.20-7.21) If this time around you’re a Cancer, then this time food is/will be the answer! But is it truly food that we seek? Jupiter is transiting your sign, and your wish to expand can find many different outlets, channels and paths toward possible good fortune. You’ll/we’ll learn more between Thanksgiving and Christmas — the domain of the Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius. Gobble, gobble. 

LEO (7.22-8.21) Well, let’s see… Jupiter’s in your theoretical 12th house. You benefit from meditating alone. Saturn, the Sun and a retrograding Mercury all abide in your 4th. Old pipes, faulty wiring or a lyin’, cheatin’ Scorpio’s gonna try and wear down and/or somehow hassle your castle. Mars is in Virgo — your 2nd House. Time to get back to work and make some money for the fix-up. Meditate on that. 

VIRGO (8.22-9.21) If you haven’t appreciated my weekly article lately, then please read Gemini. If you’ve no complaints, then you’re ahead of the(m) “ain’ts.” Maybe your dad or some older relative has something to say or to tell you. They may find it difficult to get the message across, for one reason or another. Why not be patient and help them out — without them always having to ask, first? How does the MOJO know?

LIBRA (9.22-10.21) Time to travel and visit relatives…or at least, make such/your plans now. You’re always early — the sign of the prophet. Now, one doesn’t have to be psychic in order to recognize the sequence of nature, using the zodiac as a map to (y)our transit through time. But we are all surfers, and somehow, most mysteriously, we can use astrology to gauge the waves. Boys: Hang 11. Girls: Hang 12. (Hawaiian surf lingo.) Surf’s up! ,
