Welcome to Sun in Scorpio my sweets. (Well technically, it’s tomorrow as I write we are still at 29 degrees Libra - the final degree!)
And just quickly, i’d like to encourage before moving into Sun in Scorpio - journal with yourself & write down 5 things that this transit through Libra taught you, or, 5 things that you learned around relationships & relating, in the last 4 weeks.
Hopefully you made some exquisite progress that you can bring with you into our powerful journey into Scorpio.
Scorpio is a potent, complex yet remarkable energy according to Astrology. First off, it’s Pluto ruled - Pluto is the planet of death/rebirth & transformation. Whatever Pluto touches in exposes deep truths, makes us uncomfortable, but all for the sake of total empowerment.
Scorpio’s can often be misread, why?
Because in a sense they are the keepers of depth, emotion & mystery. A lot of people feel uncomfortable getting too deep and Scorpio energy feels uncomfortable keeping it surface. Scorpio (& Pluto) seek to excavate, to get real, to expose, to feel, to penetrate deep into all that life & truth have to offer.
To give you a little further backstory on Scorpio energy, Scorpio rules what’s known as the 8th House in Astrology. The 8th House is the gateway between the lower houses that rule mundane human, day-to-day matters & the upper houses, that rule the intangible, higher energies of human existence. The 8th House rules sex, transformation, releases that which binds us, habitual patterns, taxes, residual income or inheritances, ego death, orgasm, sensuality, etc. Needless to say, it’s a powerful & complex house and so you get it - Scorpio is a powerful & complex sign.
So what does this mean for us and you moving through Scorpio energy?
Be willing to feel your feelings - don’t run, don’t escape what you feel. So important to move with our emotions instead of against them as we transit a water sign, especially Scorpio!
Release old patterns & habits - whatever doesn’t serve you has just got to go. The Full Moon will reveal or perhaps, you know what needs to be surrendered in your life anyway ;)
Explore the mysteries of life through feeling, sensuality, the mystical arts, etc. - Scorpio season can feel potent, ground your energy through your feeling centers, get in touch with the Earth & your sensual side especially during the Full Moon in Taurus on Wednesday - get your Tarot cards out & your Natal charts open - enjoy getting spiritual, mystical and more in tune as we journey through the depths of Scorpio
Ease up on emotional assumptions or distrust - Scorpio can have a bit of an energy of the detective. Practice tapping into your intuition, not making emotional assumptions. Intuitive energy is powerful when guided by the Heart and true life & tangible experience is what reveals the truth to us. Approach everything with spaciousness and love. Get into natural bodies of water or out into Nature if you are feeling lots of emotions or mixed signal information from within.
Horoscopes - energy to take with you into Scorpio Season
Aries - Balance, life purpose & drive with health and well being. Know the moments to slow down, get in nature or water.
Taurus - Relationship energy can be majorly healed and transformed for you this month, ask for what you need.
Gemini - Let your feelings guide you more than you mind, if it feels like warmth and truth, go with it, if it scares the shit out of you, try to understand it more deeply & respectfully.
Cancer - Create space to learn something new, that you didn’t understand before, know that you can stretch beyond your comfort zone at anytime. Just choose the new.
Leo - Career & productivity are nourished by your inner peace and the space you take to let you inner child enjoy her or himself.
Virgo - Time with friends & synchronous networks nourish your spirit, especially if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed as of late.
Libra - Meditation is key for you right now, deep soul work or paying attention to your internal weather will feel rewarding and satiating. Take the time.
Scorpio - New beginnings marks your Solar Return, feel rejuvenated, step into your power, take the leadership role where necessary, reinvent yourself this time around.
Sagittarius - Re-evaluate how much value you place on your inherent worth and then up your prices.
Capricorn - Communicate, express, share your thoughts and feelings. Tap into what feels light for you and not just required this month.
Aquarius - Revamp your room, bedding, home. Get minimal or donate or giveaway old stuff that doesn’t resonate anymore. Let go of old energy around the house & watch life open into magic.
Pisces - Tap into joy, tune into lightness, enjoy yourself in some capacity this month. Channel emotionality with creativity or spending time with children.
So here it is, Venus Retrograde. From today October 5, 2018 through November 16, 2018 the Goddess of Feminine Energy, Money, Love, Self Worth & Value, goes into her Yin state and we will all feel the effects for our greatest well being and healing.
Venus Retrograde allows us to evolve our relationship to Relationships, Self Worth & Money.
Retrogrades seems to always trip people out (including me, tbh!) but, think of Retrogrades this way: when we go inward, we are so so so deeply rewarded and looked after by the Universe and Life Energy itself.
This is why personal development, health & wellness, spiritual work and the like equate to living a much more fulfilling and ultimately peaceful existence. Keep this in mind as I traverse some of the energies Venus Retrograde presents to us.
Ways to Honor Venus Retrograde:
Self Love - practice mirror work, loving yourself through pain or challenge, being your own best friend, being gentle, going into your own Yin state when you feel tired or shut down.
Money Management - Try a new way of relating to your money, whether that be spending for pleasure, self investment or tightening up your budget. Managing our Money as women is deeply important & something i’ll be going into in depth in my Live Women’s Empowerment Course starting on Tuesday.
Staying Inspired - Turn inward. What inspires you? What gives you pleasure? Explore Venusian qualities in your life. Case in point, tonight I am going to the natural hot springs in LA, something I NEVER do. Water energy = feminine energy. I always get beautiful ideas & fresh perspectives when I get out of cleansing, fresh water.
Heal Old Wounds around Relationships - Forgive your past. Do a meditation or simple ritual on the New Moon in Libra Oct. 9th, honoring the New Energy making its way into your current relationships & thanking all of the lovers, relationships, etc. you’ve had your entire life for all that they have taught you. This is deeply liberating and beautiful and makes way for fresh energy to enter your current relationships. I also suggest EFT Tapping to heal or let go of any old wounds around love, sex & the like.
5. Honor Your Inherent Worth - Stuff may come up for us during this Retrograde that really makes us question our worth. Our deeper work is knowing our worth is inherent, meaning, it is there simply because we breath. That can be so challenging in a world that defines worth based solely on how we look, what we wear, our status, etc. My Capricorn Rising deeply struggles with this! So I look forward to how I can heal and strengthen my resolve here during this Venus Rx.
Ways to honor Venus Rx for your particular sign. I also suggest taking a look at where this Venus Retrograde in Scorpio traverses in your chart - I will be releasing an amazing post on an enlightened view of the Houses on Monday (first to email subscribers:) so you can utilize that to see where this Venus Rx is working in your personal chart!
Aries - Love Yourself. Bring everything back down to you, how you heal and love yourself is paramount to your forward movement right now.
Taurus - Self Worth is your keyword. You can raise your prices and not let people in or stick around who don’t honor your inherent worth. Focus on laying foundation for bigger money goals.
Gemini - Express yourself when you need a helping hand, everyone needs help sometimes, everyone is welcome to be vulnerable including you.
Cancer - Self Nurturance is key now, sending some of the love & care you give to others over to yourself during this Rx. Extra Sleep & Self Care is a must.
Leo - Heart Healing. Where have you given so much that you are just a bit depleted? Where is your heart calling you to go that you have been ignoring? Now is a time to listen to Self.
Virgo - Balance your health and your work load during this Venus Rx. Heal and honor yourself with nourishing foods & body movement.
Libra - Relationship healing is majorly possible, understanding the context of you and another is available. Deeper & key insights into your contribution in your relationships is available to you during this Cycle, seeing dynamics in a way you never have before.
Scorpio - Deep work, time spent alone, healing & loving yourself. Meditation is key, time spent listening to your voice in a deeper way so you can go full force on creative projects and endeavors. Keep relation to Self during this cycle.
Sagittarius - Learning things anew. Whatever hasn’t been working in your life, study, ask for assistance, learn a new way during this Venus Rx. Buy the Course, call the Therapist, etc.
Capricorn - Heal your relationship to constant climbing or productivity. How can you slow down a bit and receive? Become a magnet for possibility simply by Being. Try things anew.
Aquarius - Cultivate a new vision for yourself. See how life, love & goals can unfold in a unique and new way when you gain a fresh, inspiring perspective.
Pisces - Meditate, slow your pace and listen deeply. You may feel right at home with this Venus Rx transit beckoning you to come within.

Short Term Aspects:
Sun in Capricorn: We are in the early degrees of Capricorn - Capricorn is Saturn ruled so we takes on a serious, practical and no-nonsense tone. Setting goals, getting our ideas & actions in a row heading into the New Year & planning our plans will be most in focus for us at the beginning of this transit.
As we move through Capricorn (until January 19) focusing on goals, getting stuff *done* & taking action to our dreams (An Aquarius matter...) will feel important & supported.
There is magic to writing things down. Write down your intentions for January 2018 and then all of 2018 (as a whole) in this next week.
Mercury in Sagittarius: Mercury is chatty and far too truthful when cruising through jovial, fiery & unfiltered Sagittarius. As best you can, think before you speak especially on sensitive subjects, you could feel bad about what you say once the dust of the conversation has settled. Kindness or gentleness in conversation win this week thanks to a square to spiritualized Neptune. Meditation to ease a busy mind is a yes.
You are supported to talk about your dreams and goals this next week. Put it out into the Universe & speak your truth, to yourself first before sharing it with anyone else.
Venus in Capricorn: Love takes on a serious and practical tone. We will look at love through the guide of realism and practicality. Does this person or this project make sense? If the answer is a hard no, we may feel confused between heart feelings & pragmatism as those are typically different tongues of internal speech.
Mars in Scorpio: Our drive to succeed or move forward in some area of our life (whatever House Mars is aspecting in your Natal Chart) feels imperative and powerful. Mars is our drive to act, procreate & move forward. Scorpio is our deep feels, our truths & deepest desires & yearnings. A very potent space for Mars to move through, regular Meditation and exercise can assist in balancing out all of the dynamics of this transit.
Long Term Aspects:
Jupiter in Scorpio: Jupiter is a blessings & good fortune planet, it expands whatever it touches. It can sometimes make something a bit too much to handle. Whatever House Jupiter is moving through in this Scorpio transit is where your life is meant to expand and get bigger in some capacity.
Scorpio is again a sign of truth, depth & intensity. Notice how many intense things are coming to light on a mass scale currently?
Take a look at what secrets have been revealed in your life as of late. Whatever surfaces is meant to make everything better, I promise.
Saturn in Capricorn: So, Saturn is the Natural Ruler of Capricorn meaning it's right at home and bossy AF when it's moving through its home sign. This can light a major fire under our asses to really get our lives in order, *do* what we say we are going to *do* & stop making excuses. Saturn is known to be a task master & is the energy of Karma and Fate. I suggest taking the first steps instead of Saturn taking them for you! ;)
Uranus in Aries: Uranus in Aries is a rebel. Uranus kicks sh*t up and doesn't say sorry, double that when it's in the fiery sign of the innovator & the self-loving Aries. What part of your life have you been asked to be original & to put yourself first? This isn't for the sake of selfishness but for evolution.
Neptune in Pisces: Neptune in Pisces is dreamy and even attempts escape from reality on the regular. Hey that's fine because life can be incredibly intense most of the time.
For the sake of balance: Saturn in Capricorn is asking us to ground down & get real (Saturn = Capricorn's Natural Ruler) & Neptune is the Natural Ruler of Pisces.. asking us to dream & escape sometimes too, to keep ourselves centered. Do you see the connection here?
Neptune in Pisces invites us to escape the mundane, dream & get lost in the other parts of reality from time to time but not too lost because Saturn in Capricorn will pull us right back down to Earth so we stay aligned with our karmic mission. Life is all about balance, integration, grounding to flow & just be... it's all a sacred dance of opposites and this is what Astrology & the Esoteric teaches us best.
Pluto in Capricorn: What is most interesting about a Pluto in Capricorn transit is seeing where it personally impacts your chart. (You can book a session with me to figure out where, why & what Pluto has to say about your life as it slowly progresses through Capricorn) Pluto makes us transform. On a mass scale Pluto moving through Capricorn has been all about calling into question all the systems of power & control that don't work... You can take a look at our political climate currently if you'd like to see what I mean.
Pluto transforms & burns away all that doesn't work to make things better & brighter. The process of the burn down is total surrender to the process and trust in the process. Capricorn is a sign that can be about crazy amounts of control & power. Pluto calls for reinvention in our relationship to personal power as well as the current power structures at play in the world.
Personal Power & Surrender to the Whole is a take away message of Pluto in Capricorn.
