It's High-Scorpio Season: Plunge the Depths and Commit


We are knee-deep in Scorpio, fixed water sign of the serpent eagle, the phoenix, the scorpion. Even folks who are used to living with intensity find that high Scorpio-season stirs up the deepest, often the darkest emotions to be dealt with. It is a time to fear not. Face the shadows. Trust the transformation that wants – needs – to happen in your world. It’s time to plunge the depths.

I know it is scary. I know that Scorpio time can bring us to our knees. We want to hold onto the old way, the way that feels safe. But “safe” eventually turns on us. If we do not allow Consciousness to unfold in our bodies, minds, hearts, souls, it stagnates and becomes toxic. Scorpio wants us to transform poison into nectar. We face our demons, our bugaboos, the things we dread. We must actualize our potential. And at this time, this more than likely involves INTIMACY.


This means, we have to go deeper into “you and me,” and how we affect each other on core, survival levels. We may have to talk about finances (big money!). We may have to reveal - to ourselves and another - our sexual edges, taboos, the ‘verboten.’ We may have to commit to difficult actions that require self-sacrifice. We plunge deeper in order to fulfill our need for deep psychological development and growth.

In short, we may have to GO THERE.

As we gear up for the Scorpio New Moon (Saturday, November 18), we are also building on a very special conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in Scorpio, exact on Monday November 13. I believe the joining of these two benefactors, Jupiter-Zeus and Venus-Aphrodite, is bringing us each a new superpower. Ultimately, this cosmic meeting is revealing a deeper power of LOVE. Love that goes beyond culture, beyond conditions, beyond what we thought was possible.

In order to realize this superpower, however, we must COMMIT.

What do you need to commit to at this time, with not only your heart and mind, but with your BODY and BEING? Going into the grit now reveals that the power of love and commitment is a major transformational force. It will give you bravery, a strength beyond that which you’ve ever known. You will have a fierceness and resolve to do that which must be done, to realize your greatest potential. You may have to become more responsible to your self, your profession, your child, your partner, your bank account, your body. You will have to tolerate and work with more intensity in this area of life than you previously knew was possible. And as a result, this area of life will be completely empowered. GO THERE.

Let’s see what you’ve got.


Where are the Jupiter-Venus conjunction and New Moon occurring in your personal chart? Check to see which houses! The Jupiter-Venus conjunction November 13, 3:15 a.m. is at 7 degrees Scorpio, and the New Moon in Scorpio November 18, 3:42 a.m. PT is at 26 degrees Scorpio. Contact Erin directly here for a personal consultation and astro-intuitive guidance.

Full Moon in Taurus: Inner Security & Shared Values

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
~Lao Tzu


Tonight, we have a Full Moon in the fixed earth sign of Taurus. During this lunation, we are reminded it’s not just what we want in life that makes us happy; it’s what we NEED that enables us to fulfill our deepest longings and to feel that earthy sense of calm.

Taurus the Bull teaches us that our peace of mind depends upon having and maintaining that which we VALUE. These could be actual material possessions such as a good computer, a home you own, a reliable car (remember the Ford Taurus?), top-notch sporting goods, or sturdy furniture. And, these values could be abstract ones that we cultivate, slowly and surely, over time. Good health is a perfect example.

How do we keep and maintain “abstract values”? We consistently INVEST our life force into them – time, money, energy, vitality – into them. Consider a few scenarios:
  • You come to realize that professional growth means more than just how much you earn: you also need to learn. So, in order to keep your brain happy, you sign up for a class at your local community college, or go back for that advanced degree you’ve always thought about getting.
  • You know that ample time spent in Nature feeds your soul, relaxes your nervous system, and provides healthy stimulation. So, you start a habit of booking a semi-annual backpacking trip or outing to Yosemite AND get it secured on the calendar far in advance. You guard that date.
  • You’ve learned that longevity in partnership is not to be taken for granted. It requires commitment – a willingness to work through the hard stuff. You forego an old pattern of disposable relationships and online dating in order to invest in one special person. You realize that it won’t be perfect overnight and that it takes time to trust deeply.
Starting to get the picture? Taurean building takes time, commitment, and durability.

Sharing Value in Relationship

This Full Moon is opposite Jupiter newly in Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio impels us to evolve, to consider the needs of the other in our most intimate relationships in order to grow and thrive. While these planets are in a challenging position to each other, there may be discussions of “how much is enough?” and “how do we meet both of our needs?” For example, you might want to fly to Hawaii for Thanksgiving, but your partner says airfares are too high, so let’s stay closer to home and save our hard-earned money. You’ll have to come up with a creative solution that meets both the budgetary needs and the urge to splurge on fun. 

You may find that you do best with your partner when one person focuses on cooking up a good meal, and you work on the taxes or help the kids with their homework. Distribution of values, sharing the wealth. Our new one-year cycle of Jupiter in Scorpio is going to teach us a lot about depth and rebirth within the context of shared finances, intimate conversations about taboo and difficult subjects, and experiencing the rewards of a willingness to merge.



Slow and Sure Wins the Race

Building security is the theme. How do we prepare for the future in a way that honors our values and needs in the present? One of the ways is to move slowly. Realize that long-term thinking plays a part. Think about how your actions will affect your world six months from now, six years from now, three decades from now.  You’re here on Planet Earth for the long haul, after all.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign, so we know that it’s got to be solid. The Taj Mahal wasn’t built in a day (it actually took 22 years)! So even if we’re not aiming to create one of the Seven Wonders of the World, we are meant to keep an eye on the prize. Make your life an act of beauty, a work of art, and take the time you need to invest, little by little. You’ll get there.

Wishing you a nourishing Full Moon!

Full Moon in Aries: The 'I' of the Hurricane



Today we have the Full Moon in Aries, cardinal fire sign of the Ram. Aries takes initiative, doesn’t hold back, faces everything with an open heart and courage. Dives in, trusts the truth, asserts the self. At this time of the Full Moon, we are meant to stand tall in our selves, solar plexus shining bright, taking refuge in the ‘I' of the storm.

Aries’ spiritual statement is “I Am.” During this time of global stress – natural disasters and human catastrophe – it can be easy to get highly disturbed, agitated, and despairing. It’s easier to lose our footing, to get swept away ourselves into a sea of negativity and darkness. During chaotic cycles, it’s imperative to remember the Self, the I Am of our true nature. Sat Chit Ananda ~ being (truth), consciousness, peace (bliss). 

There is a space and a place inside each of us that is 100% love, totally connected, pure presence. This is the ‘I’ in the hurricane. This is Aries’ I Am. I am here. I exist. I am awareness. Even while the world goes to hell in a hand basket around us, we can keep a cool head. 

Aries is ruled by the head, and it is particularly important for Rams and those with strong Ram influences in their charts, to protect their heads from the sun, from injury, from a potentially harmful rush of blood to the head. When Aries keeps their head, the Ram becomes a fantastic force of nature: clear, calculated, confident. Unstoppable. Let us all practice this today.


Drop into your true nature. Aries is ruled by Mars, the warrior planet, and is the master martial artist. Stay in the hara, the svadisthana or second chakra. You may feel this “seat of the soul” most prominently in the sacral area, or in the pelvic bowl region.  This is your center, your place of rest. I often advise my clients and students to hang out here, in your ‘inner hammock.’ 

From this place, all action arises from the Self, the ground of being. It is particularly important to find this seat of resting consciousness in times of strife. From this place, we make calm, cool, pointed moves. 

That's grounded and centered Aries.
Perfect action, right on time.
“If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too…”
~ Rudyard Kipling

New Moon in Virgo: Self-Healing and Horoscopes


Today we celebrate the New Moon in Virgo, mutable earth sign of the Virgin. In many ancient Greek usages, the word virgin meant a woman who is *whole* unto herself. She is complete and knows exactly what she needs in order to self-heal. Now is a time to recommit to that which reconnects to our selves, at our healthiest and best. Whether you identify as male or female, you have within you a Virgin Goddess, a form of the Divine Feminine that is an expert at self-care and renewal. At this New Moon, we see how to best replenish our reserves. 

This is a transition lunation: we are about to step into fall, with the autumnal equinox this Friday. We will need our strength. We need our hearths and hearts well-tended, blazing fully, in order to prepare for the winter ahead. If we heed the call of our sensitive bodies, minds, spirits we will be in much better shape to enjoy the Season of Change. Prepare for the colors to burst. Be in good health and enjoy.

New Moon in Virgo: Self-Healing Horoscopes

In keeping with my theme of channeling astro-intuitive ‘scopes of late, here are some cosmic tips sign-by-sign to help you navigate the New Moon energies. Be sure to read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs for best results! And, please forward and share with friends!



Aries: You are being guided right now. Your angels and allies, protector spirits and positive energy forces are moving you into the perfect position of your life. A new chapter is unfolding, calling you into greater heights. A new definition of ‘family’ may be a part of this, whether that be your work family, your housemates or pets, your actual biological family, or your global family. Let yourself be called into a new life. You couldn’t stop it if you tried.


Taurus: Your self-care and self-renewal tip is to ALLOW yourself to receive the praise, acclaim, and recognition that you have earned, and that you deserve. Toot your own horn, allow others to give you their cheerleading all the way. For you, self-care doesn’t happen in a vacuum right now – it takes a village – and part of that means letting your community uplift you and remind you how totally awesome you are.


Gemini: Focus. Back to work. You don’t need to burn the candle at both ends, no. But you do need to apply yourself just a little bit every day. Refine your craft and practice doing more of that which you’ve already been doing. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel right now. You can do the same types of work but with variations on the theme. The best part is that you’ll be earning stable income, whistling while you work. That’s good self-care.


Cancer: Time to plan a getaway. You’ve done enough work on your major projects, and it’s time to take your leave. It appears there is a batch of commitments of time or energy that you’ve grown out of. It’s time now to walk away… greener pastures await. Perhaps you don’t have any idea what you will do with that open space on your schedule, but your Higher Self knows and is reserving it for you. Let go and move on.


Leo: You’ve outgrown a group of people or a part of your community that once held a significant place in your heart, but no longer. Perhaps you feel odd about leaving this scene behind, or feel nostalgic about days gone by. That’s normal. You might look back from time to time and wonder why it’s all changed, or if they still love you and remember you. It’s an evolutionary leap in your life to trust that you need to leave these folks and situations in order to step into the next chapter of your amazing life. 


Virgo: Reserve your energy, save your resources. That might entail staying home, staying in more than running around being busy. Trust that while it may feel a bit boring at the moment, this will ensure that you have a lot more energy available for the things that are truly important when the time is just perfect. You may also be practicing self-care by saving money. Also, don’t overspend. Be frugal right now and you’ll have all the abundance you need when it’s time to lay out the cash.


Libra: As we get ready to shift into your own birthday season, dear Libra, you get to reconnect to all of the things that your heart truly desires. Create a life that you love. Mock it up. Make a list, make a vision board collage, do some journaling and get super clear on all of the goodness you want to bring in. The universe wants to give you all you desire MOST right now. Be sure to cut out all “shoulds” and “ought tos.” Stick with what your HEART wants. That's magnetic self-care.


Scorpio: Each of us has an archetypal Inner Father inside, often showing up as a rational, logical and practical voice of protection and guidance. Your job is to ask yourself if that Inner Father voice is overly critical or rejecting, or have you cultivated an Inner Father that is kind, benevolent and supportive? You deserve to feel cared for and nourished by a masculine force within and without - just as you have a feminine, mothering side. Cultivate a relationship with a loving Inner Father figure.


Sagittarius: Breakdown to breakthrough: this is sometimes necessary. It looks like your self-care act is going to be rather dramatic, Sag. You need to bust out of a habit or a cultural norm or restricting situation in order to experience true liberation and freedom. The energy that is freed from your breakthrough is going to bring so much light and freshness to your life, dear Archer. It’s worth the temporary disruption you have to go through. Courage? You have it in spades.


Capricorn: Spa treatments are necessary. Try to get to a foot-rub place, or get a massage, soak in a jacuzzi. If you can’t spare the time or resources to go to a professional place, you can create an at-home spa experience. Fill up your tub with Epsom salts. Or add apple cider vinegar, or drops of your favorite essential oils. You can also give yourself an at-home facial or a nice sesame-oil rubdown massage. Whatever you decide to do to honor that beautiful body of yours, do it soon and more often. You need some body-loving.


Aquarius: Community, community, community. You cannot neglect your people. They need you, and vice versa. You have a symbiotic relationship with your friends, business associates, neighbors, and your world family. This is part of being an Aquarius. Even if you’re an introverted Water Bearer, there is a way that your antennae need to reach out and touch others, and be stimulated by them. It is also a way for you to take care of yourself by avoiding isolation. You’re building a solid future by sharing community spirit.


Pisces: You’ve been contemplating a step into your next life chapter for a good month, and now you have to take the next step. Yes, it can be a baby step; it doesn’t have to be a huge move, but it must be significant and directed toward the future you are envisioning. Imagine where you want to be and how you will be feeling once you get there. It’s time to move forward, Pisces. Swim upstream. Just a bit! Keep swimming.
