How 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.

How 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 a bit!

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 in the Tarot

~ 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, vibrant love.

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 blossoming flowers...

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 is in Capricorn now until 2024. The very fabric of society may begin to be re-woven - but not before old structures are dismantled. Capricorn is about authority, success, achievement and social order. Pluto is about death and regeneration. Pluto asks us to dig deep and USE what is best in our world to create something much better. We need to avail ourselves of and share our brightest and most humanistic minds (Uranus in Pisces, Neptune in Aquarius!!), and not descend into blind destructiveness, greed or desperation.

The 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 the sort of fanaticism that has not been seen since the last such aspect at the beginning of WWII. Yet - this aspect also has the potential to inspire lasting, humanitarian changes throughout the world.

From 8/22 to 3/4/2011, the North & South Nodes are on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, bringing a focus on relationships that can help us to achieve our goals, do our very best, and encourage us to honor our teachers, supporters and mentors. As we enter this phase, take time to remember ancestors and to acknowledge valued family members, yet to let go of those memories and belongings that no longer serve us. Reach out with enthusiasm for new opportunities that may present themselves!

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
~ Future Forecast ~ for Love

Venus in Libra from 10/15 to 11/8 is loving love - glowing with charm and grace - seemingly irresistible, and doing whatever it takes to look good and keep everyone else happy - and this may be just alright for Mars in Leo from 10/17/09 to 6/17/2010 (!!!) - LONG retrograde from 12/20/09 to 3/10/2010! Males will want to really shine, and egos may seem especially large - but certainly family matters will take on increased importance for men, as well as the desire to maintain a spotless reputation... Look good, be good, do good!

Venus in Scorpio from 11/9 to 12/1 is intense, sensitive, stubborn, jealous, and likely to clash with Mars in Leo. If your beginning to feel tension in close relationships, this may be why. Compromise between these two fixed signs is rare, Men may seem a bit more domineering (although also playful and caring), and women may seem a bit more suspicious and, perhaps, even vengeful (yet also passionate and deeply invested). The trick, as with most things in life, may be to keep laughing, and loving yourself and others... Avoid drama, and sit back and watch the show!

Future Forecast for Love

During the first week in November, Neptune/Jupiter/Chiron are still conjunct in Aquarius, Venus trines Neptune, and Saturn begins a long square to Pluto (exact 11/15), influencing us to strive to bring about lasting changes for the sake of harmony, healing and the ideal life. Clashes between traditional and revolutionary ideas are likely - those who strive for radical change, or the elimination of outmoded ways may feel frustrated, yet so often, new information is brought to light through confrontation. Sincere communication is crucial!

The second week, Venus in Scorpio sextiles and octiles Uranus. bringing an itching need for meaningful change in love, in art, and in all things that bind us socially. Women may feel more powerful and alluring this week. Give her some space and respect, and all will be well (maybe better than well!)

During the third week, Venus is square Mars, quintile the N.Node, and septile Pluto,, bringing tension between couples that may only be remedied by absolute sincerity. Hiding one's true feelings, even if hurtful, can be disastrous in the long run.

During the 4th week, Venus is between the Saturn/Pluto square, squares Jupiter/Neptune/Chiron, and trines Uranus while Mars makes irritating aspects to Pluto Uranus and Saturn. There's plenty going on here to indicate that the socially aware and sensitive among us may be called upon to mediate and find brilliant solutions to problems brought on by stubbornness, selfishness and lack of vision. Treat conflicts as opportunities, and if someone sets you straight, do your best to listen with a respectful, humble ear!

~ The Big Guys ~

Jupiter is in Aquarius til 1/18/2010. Lucky, expansive Jupiter will be crossing and re- crossing Chiron and Neptune during 2009, helping to bring us new ideas in spirituality, religious openness, tolerance and healing forms of justice.

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 from authority figures regarding the sanctity and protection of our mother earth. A wonderful time this can be!! Let's make conscious guardianship of our world the central focus for all we do!
