Patience may be required if you’re trying to gets something important off your desk today. The intense and methodical Scorpio Moon is void-of-course as of 5:34AM ET, after making a pleasant connection to Venus, which sets a cooperative tone. However, the Moon will not enter Sagittarius (the sign after Scorpio) until 6:50AM ET on Friday. That’s a loooong time for a natural break in the action, and it suggests a higher potential for a twist in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. People cancel appointments — or simply forget about them. A “crisis” happens that turns out to be nothing to worry about, but you had to deal with it anyway. Go with the flow…and if you can plan a watery escape, more power to you. Otherwise work on being present.
Mars changes signs today — also moving into Scorpio, where it will stay until October 7th. Mars — which refers to the energy we apply when we take action — is one of the rulers of Scorpio, and thus it is well-placed — for better or for worse. Mars in Scorpio can be passionate and magnetic, simmering with an aura of powerful knowingness – and wouldn’t you like to know what’s going on deep down inside. It can also be ruthless and vengeful.
When motivated by love, honor and integrity, Scorpio builds all the way to heaven. When motivated by fear, suspicion or power for its own sake, Scorpio destroys all the way to hell. As astrologer Linda Goodman once wrote, “That’s what makes Scorpio so…interesting.” Why is Scorpio so tough to handle? In a horoscope it naturally rules the 8th house of sex, death and money. These are tough subjects for most all of us, these matters of life and death.
Look for an uptick in intensity and passion over the next several weeks — in your own personal world and in world events. Debating, weighing issues, trying to keep the peace is so Mars in Libra. Now is the time for actions with power and emotional substance. That’s Mars in Scorpio.
