to Treat your Scorpio
Your Scorpio embodies the characteristics of the Ruler of the
Underworld... Hades, Pluto - any name you call him by, he's one you
don't want to mess with! This is one small, passionate arachnid who
packs a whallop.
Now, I know Scorpio gets a bad rap. That's because people need to
look beyond the stinger and get to the meat. And the meat is tasty.
First of all, without resorting to actually devouring your Scorpio
(although she'd love it), take into consideration these enticing
Scorpionic traits: Your Scorpio is deeply intuitive, sensual,
mysterious, sexy, prosperity conscious, able to make dramatic life
changes, a powerful ally, and - yes - deeply spiritual. The key word
here is deep....deep as the ocean herself.
So why wouldn't you want to mess with someone who sounds so alluring?
Why should you think twice about badmouthing or - dare I say -
leaving such a one? Because everything runs deep with Scorpio. All
the good, and all the bad. Feelings are strong, and last forever!
When you are aligned with his wishes, you are his champion, his
partner, his war-buddy. When you cross the line, you might as well
hide out for a year until her venom wears off. Just think of your
Scorpio as the Godfather (as in the movie.) You get the picture....
you know what happens to traitors... Don't go there! So, now that you
know that you must be nice, what is it that your Scorpio needs from you?
First of all, let her know she is sexy, desirable, alluring and
powerful. Tell him that the world is putty in his hands and that he
is the ultimate sex-god. Venture into the unknown with your Scorpio.
Discover dark hidden realms and uncover secrets.... be a spy with
her. Or better yet, hide out so he can have the pleasure of finding
you. Be available to satisfy your Scorpio's sudden urges, and believe
in her neverending quest for self-discovery and the ultimate in
spiritual fulfillment. Easy enough?
Don't forget to dance and have fun with your Scorpio... they do know
how to have a good time... But always, always approach with caution.
You will be rewarded with plenty of powerful and moving experiences,
devotion, true friendship and a loyal friend - for life.

to Treat your Sagittarius
Your happy Sag is a straight shooter, a wise one, a seer who is
always ready and able to offer up plans and ideas. She knows how to
find the answers, and doesn't hesitate to do so. A natural
fortune-teller, she has an innate sense of the future. You can tap
into her foreshadowing ability and get helpful hints about how to
proceed in life. And she is always honest - even if it is overstated
Your jovial Sagi is almost always a happy camper. He sees the world
through lovely rose colored glasses. He barely recognizes
unhappiness. Your Sagi is a wonderful companion because his joy for
life is so lofty and grand that it is truly contagious.
While all this is a tremendous advantage, you may come to find that
sometimes your Sagi is a lonely, sad clown. The problem is - he may
have difficulty knowing whether or not he is truly happy inside! The
jollity of your Sagi is usually completely genuine, but he may
sometimes feel embarrassed to say if he is actually depressed.
It's not that your Sagi is hiding her feelings, it's just that she is
always looking forward to something better. Her glowing vision for
the future overshadows the present - no matter how gloomy. If you
want to make Sagi truly happy, you must be able to see through the
glowing exterior into the real, sensitive person inside. Try to see
any unhappiness, and help your Sagi recognize and do something about it!
So, assuming your Sagi is not a sad, lonely clown, how do you make
him happy when he already appears to be just fine and dandy? How can
you create an impact in such a person's life? How can make your Sagi
- who always has something to look forward to - look forward to being
with YOU? Well, the answer is very simple. All he needs is
appreciation, gratitude and a healthy dose of freedom. Listen to him
spout philosophy. Praise him for his insights into the future. Allow
her to travel endlessly, read, absorb knowledge and make more of her
mind. Ignore the tripping over words and objects! Really - she is
merely blinded by her mental far-sightedness!! Laugh with sincerity -
never with derision. Have fun with her. Make him the object of your
admiration. Think of your Sagi as a good luck charm, a shaman, a seer
and a jester. Keep her wisdom in your pocket like a talisman, and
wear his heart on your sleeve - but never restrict your Sagi's
freedom. Take all of the above into serious consideration (don't
laugh!), and you will be rewarded with a very wise and fortunate
companion in the grand adventure of life, an energetic, enthusiastic
lover and a fun-loving, true-hearted friend.

Death is associated with the Sign Scorpio
~ Changes ~
The King is dead - Long Live the King!!
This is probably the most feared and misunderstood card in the Tarot,
especially on first sight, yet for me - Death is one of the most
refreshing of all the trumps. It must be remembered that when this
card appears, it should not be taken as an indication that someone is
going to physically die.
Of course they will - someday...
Death will surely come. We feel its icy hand in the cold, frosty
winter that kills the dead-wood once and for all so that new
seedlings can flourish. We witness the reaper's wrath in the raging
fire that purifies the forest. His shadow lingers in the slow decay
of a sad, loveless marriage, as he eventually clears the way for new,
Life-renewing, Death can bring an end to a boring job in favor of
something more challenging and meaningful, or the abandonment of some
useless, time-consuming habit. The promise of something new is what
makes Death so fascinating. Even in actual physical demise, we
proceed to a place that is mysteriously new, and undoubtedly
infinitely more beautiful and peaceful.
I believe that the quantity of energy in the universe, in our spirits
and in our lives, is somewhat finite. While it's true that we can
expand our capacity for knowledge, experiences and relationships - we
inevitably reach a point of saturation, in which something has to go
in order to allow space for something new to enter the scene. This is
where Death comes in - to clear the air, till the field and bury the
dead. I sometimes wonder if people who are over- filled somehow, and
refuse or are unable to chop out the dead-wood, are actually forced
to leave us in death. This card reminds us that change is necessary,
and inevitable. After we grieve the loss of something or someone, we
can embrace the rays of hope and life that are nourished by the
legacy that is left behind. And we must grieve. Without going through
a time of processing - emotionally, physically, spiritually and
mentally - the personal meaning of that which has passed on - we may
not be able to properly nurture, or even realize the new life that is
given in its wake.
Death is necessary to life. His arrival is painful, but he promises
so much! May you embrace the changes that await you without fear -
mourn what is over and done with, buried and gone... and witness with
wonder and grace how the pure richness of its passing nourishes the

Outer Planets - Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the Lunar Nodes
Uranus in Pisces! ... Uranus will stay in the Sign of the Fish
'til 2011! Spiritual Revolution you say?? Yes, that would describe it
well. What can we expect with Uranus in Pisces? Perhaps our ideas
about death, sacrifice, the fantastic and impossible, transcendence
and service to humanity will take some dramatic and innovative turns.
We can hope that humanitarianism will take on new meaning and
purpose, and that service to others may become a more integral part
of our social order. With this placement, Uranus can become quite
reclusive or fanatical. Scientists who may have been hiding out for
years in research can bring new and surprising inventions and
discoveries into our midst, and Political Messiahs may come out of
the woodwork. With Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception - they will
rely upon each other more than usual, and herald perhaps a renewed
and revolutionary (Uranus) vision for humanity (Neptune) The cost may
be a certain amount of turmoil and confusion regarding just where we
are going for humanity, and will probably not be without conflict.
Neptune in Aquarius (til 2012) is helping to set our
expressions of love and creativity into positive, innovative motion.
A change in the prevailing style in movies, fashion and art will be
seen in the months and years to come - probably bringing much more in
the realm of the unusual, shocking, rebellious, and inter-cultural.
Pluto in Sagittarius speaks of honesty. While Pluto remains
here (till 2008), we are all challenged to be true to ourselves and
others, and to accept and nurture the rich diversity of humanity and
our animal companions on this earth. The world is our family, and
those who are not willing to find, or at least look for the wisdom of
the ages - reflected in many ways through many religions, traditions
and philosophies - will surely suffer a crisis of faith.
powerful Neptune/Pluto septile,
exact on Dec 1, 2006 and Feb. 21, 2007 will last (going in and out
of close orb) into 2011! For those of us who are very creative,
tremendous inspiration can bring influential, explosive, mind-blowing
creations. In love - the potential for making inspired changes is
heightened - yet there also exists the possibility of getting lost in
confusion. Avoid falling into a pit of despair, or indulging in
self-destructive activities. Getting nowhere fast? Look for Creative
and Healthy, Inspired, Loving outlets to save your skin! Get involved
in helping others.... this is especially important now! Neptune/Pluto
can bring a fanaticism wthat has not been seen since the last such
aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect is also very
positive for creating lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.
The North and South Nodes are now on the Pisces/Virgo axis
('til 12/19/07). This node placement brings a greater sense of right
and wrong with the world and humanity on a grand scale, with issues
of escape, sacrifice, anhilation, and merging spiritually with others
coming to the fore karmically and within our relationships.
Christianity and religion in general may be at issue perhaps even
more than usual.
Let us hope that, regardless of one's religious allegiance, all who
feel true love in their hearts will continue to spread this light of
love, pray for our planet, and find a way to peace - however that may be.
Chiron in Aquarius... This archetype of human compassion will
be passing nonstop through Aquarius from January 06 til Feb. 2011,
bringing a period of higher inspiration in the realm of healing. We
may look forward to greater cooperation worldwide in the healing
sciences, and perhaps going back to tradition - those time honored
ways that our ancestors enjoyed and practiced in harmony with nature.
Perhaps we may find more and more "health" foods (ie
unaltered and unprocessed) on our grocery shelves, greater acceptance
of mind-body healing approaches, and some brave new ideas to surface, too.

Mewsings from Venus
& Mars... November 2007
Venus in Virgo
10/9 to 11/8 is earthy, kind-hearted, and attentive to detail. Your
appreciation for her care is sure to be rewarded!
Mars is in Cancer from 9/28 to 12/31 (retrograde 11/15 to
1/30/08, and in Gemini 1/1 until 3/5/08 when the red planet is back
again in Cancer. This placement for Mars brings safety
consciousness to our fighting instinct, and quite possibly strong
nationalistic energy. We are in "home protection" mode, and
may need to beware of creating a sense of isolation or mistrust.
However, if the focus is turned toward non-violent fighting
(Mars) for the protection of our Mother (Cancer/Moon) earth, as well
as for our families and communities - all will be well!
Venus in Libra11/9 to 12/5 is loving and charming. This Libra
brings beauty and harmony to all things, and females especially are
more likely to crave social interaction, and fine places and things
to make life more pleasing!
FUTURE FORECAST FOR LOVE
The first week in November, Venus in Virgo is quintile Mars
and Neptune and square Pluto, while Jupiter sextiles Neptune, bringing
either strong sexual attraction or conflict between the sexes, and
possibly some disillusionment for those who are not finding
During the second week in November, Venus moves into Libra,
and Mars bi-quintiles Neptune, a fairly calm, pleasing week
with few major planetary aspects - a good time to prepare for
potential battles during the third week when... Venus and Mars
are square, and Venus quintiles Pluto and Jupiter... bringing
perhaps some relationship drama. This can be enlivening and exciting
for comfortable relationships, but stressful for those already under
stress. Those seeking change may just find it.
during the fourth week, Venus is trine Neptune and sextile
Jupiter, with a bi- quintile to Uranus. This is likely to be
another calm, yet sociable period - a creative, imaginative time that
can be very conducive to preparing for winter festivities!
~ The Big Guys ~
Jupiter in Sagittarius til 12/18/07 is in his glory, bringing
tremendous energy for truth, liberty, justice, expansion, increase,
humor, intelligence and broad-mindedness. Jupiter conjuncts Pluto at
28 deg. Sag. early to mid Dec. '07 (exact 12/12/07), which I believe
will trigger great spiritual/moral outspokenness and fiery debate, as
well as increased activity in research and discovery. I see this as a
sort of "last chance" to speak your truth - then make your
peace. As long as finding common moral ground is the goal, all will
be well. Pompous self-righteousness won't further any goals, but
there may be some of that. Venus will follow (conjuncting Pluto) in
Jan. 08 with Mars opposite - another opportunity for mending broken
relationships. It won't be much longer til Pluto is in Capricorn and
honesty and flexibility give way to political models that are harsh
and/or set in stone. While Jupiter is in Sag, we have time to
communicate profusely and broaden our perceptions before they become
the status quo.
Saturn in Virgo 'til July 21, 2010 brings our focus to the
things of the earth.. the cleanliness and purity of our physical
environment. These coming years can bring a stronger sense of purpose
and responsibility within our social institutions, government and
authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother
earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's feel our earth permeating
society, and becoming the central focus for all we do!
