The Taurus Full Moon is barely over and WOW! Was is ever gorgeous! It also brought us energy filled with love and abundance. Now, before I go any farther, I want to talk about that last word, abundance.
Recently, I was talking with a friend who is planning some online workshops and while I can’t remember her exact question, it was something like, “what are the three things everyone wants?”
“Abundance” was, of course, part of the answer. I realized immediately that I was answering with the typical collective answer, not my own answer.
When you ask most people what they think abundance means their reply almost always is money or related to money. The western world tends to equate abundance with cars, big houses, fancy clothes, jewelry, ability to travel, and being able to do pretty much what they want when they want. This is not the basic meaning. It means “plenty or generosity”.
You can be homeless and have abundance. You can have a checking account that is nearly empty and have abundance. Abundance is enough, enough food to eat, clothes to keep you warm, enough spare change for a bus ticket or enough friends or the manifestation of a stranger who will buy you one. But the best abundance of all is an abundance of the heart and abundance of love.
The abundance of heart or the lack of it is easy to spot. You won’t find it in bullies or people who want more than everyone else. You won’t find it in people that want to control or take away from others, or make life hard for others in any way, shape or form. You will find it in those that give freely and often, regardless of who needs the help.
The last Full Moon ushered in this sort of energy. This energy is a good lead into the next month’s Sagittarius energy of charity and giving. More on that in the coming weeks.
The Sun is now in Scorpio, ruler of the eight house of sex, death, passion, surgery, secrets, and getting to the root of things. The sun is joined in Scorpio by Jupiter, the planet of abundance (which seems to be the word for this week’s post). Remember that Jupiter will remain in Scorpio until November 2018. This sets the tone for the next year and I feel sure you will see me refer to this more in the future.
This Tuesday, Venus will join the Scorpio party. Then we will have our egos (Sun) in Scorpio as well as our relationships and finances (Venus). Jupiter will be lending a hand in creating abundance and expanding all these energies, for better or worse. Don’t forget to be grateful for whatever shows up. It is all good.
Last week, the news has been full of chaotic events, secrets coming out, sexual misconduct galore, and lies about everything under the sun. Near the end of this post, I have a short astrology lesson that ties into the topic. The big astrology news this coming week is Saturn trine Uranus.
Saturn’s aspect to Uranus is hopefully going to give us a bit of stability to the fast change and chaos of Uranus. This also combines old and new; Saturn representing the old and Uranus representing the new. We could see common goals begin to form. This aspect perfects next Saturday or Saturn’s day, November 11, 2017. Some of us are already feeling this energy even before this perfection. However, this will dissipate fairly rapidly after the 11th.
Mercury moved into Sagittarius Sunday, November 5, 2017.This transit will take out thoughts away from needing to go deep into a topic and move into more optimistic thinking. Our faith in things could increase as we are better able to believe in good. Sagittarius brings our focus to what is just or fair, and slanted or biased. Do not expect precision with this transit.
Tuesday could be full of suspicions. Expect to see mistrust and investigations. If you find yourself feeling mentally stressed, stop and relax. Get away from whatever has a hold on you for a few minutes. Get a breath of fresh air or just get up and stretch a little bit to relieve the pressure.
Thursday the Sun aspects Pluto. This is about research, one of my favorite things to do. But whatever you learn, you might want to keep it under wraps for a little while. Today is a good day to connect with your personal power or maybe find something you’ve lost.
Also on Thursday, Mars aspects Neptune. This will cause some difficulties when it comes to taking action. Neptune like to slow things down a bit. We might also be a bit more careless than usual. Neptune can make us appear to be lazy because we just can’t seem to get a grip and be productive in the way we might like. This is a fast mover so it won’t last long.
The next to last thing I want to chat about it the current influx of energy. This time of year the veil between worlds is always thinner. With each passing year, the veil as a whole becomes thinner because we are shifting from 3D to 5D. This year we had the added energy of the Full Moon approaching right after the thinning of the veil.
I know a lot of folks don’t know what I am talking about and think this is all nuts. That is fine. If you are one of them feel free to move on.
I have known since I was about 13 that I incarnated this time to somehow assist in this transition even if I didn’t fully understand it at the time. In fact, it has only been fairly recently that I have begun to get a clearer view of my purpose this time around.
I have been strongly feeling the energy coming through the veil and the cosmos lately. One way I recognize it is by the amount of sleep I feel I need. This has been a regular pattern with me during every influx of energy since right before the Summer Solstice.
Last week I slept a solid 7-8 hrs every night and still took a 2-3 hr nap the day before the Full Moon and the day of the Full Moon. I have learned to follow what my body wants to do whether it is what I want to do or not.
Last week’s energy and Full Moon are leading us into the 11/11gateway. This is a strong numerology portal for energy. It is all intended to help us raise our vibrations and shift from 3D to 5D. Yeah! We skip 4D because that is the dimension of time or space-time. Sorry if I am getting too deep.
Now for the last thing, I wanted to bring to your attention. This is the astrological term “mutual reception”. This is when two planets are transiting a sign the other rules at the same time. We have this happening after Tuesday when Venus moves into Scorpio. The mutual reception is between Venus and Mars. Mars rules Scorpio and Venus rules Libra which the the sign Mars is currently transiting.
Mutal reception places two planets in a co-operative position to each other. In this case, we might see more co-operation between Mars which rules the men and Venus which rules women. How interesting considering all the sexual misconduct that has come to light recently. Out of all this was born the “# ME TOO”.
Last week I heard someone say that with problem solidly in the spotlight now, it might be time to retire that hashtag and move on to “# Now What” or something similar. I’m not sure how all this will play out but there sure seems to be recognized on both sides that abuse is abuse regardless of gender, gender preference, or gender identity.
So there you have it. Mutual reception. Another piece to this complex art of astrology. I know I covered a lot of different topics this week. That is where I my head is at. I hope you were able to get something out of it that you can use to help you navigate your week. If you need to sleep, don’t fight it. If you aren’t sleeping, don’t worry. Listen to your body as best you can.
Have great week and remember to be kind, be grateful, and smile.
