Weekly Astrology Notes Oct 29 – Nov 5, 2017
Note: Times shown are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) until 11/5 at 2am when we switch to PST.
Weekly Summary: A very interesting group of aspects this week. A very spiritual week when the ego needs to dissolve a bit because we need to be more receptive. We are sourcing a lot of energy from the collective this week, feeling the pain and suffering of others, and it will be hard to maintain your grip on reality if you are headstrong and too oriented to the physical plane of existence. This week, the spiritual plane, or spirit world, takes on greater importance, and not just because of the Holidays, but because of the aspects we are having this week.
The biggest day this week is Friday Nov 3, with 3 planetary aspects and the Full Moon. Venus sextile Saturn and Venus opposition Uranus means that Venus activates the coming Saturn trine Uranus, due on 11/11. Our affections lean towards grander ideas than usual, beyond the mundane, and Sun trine Neptune brings an expansion of consciousness, fantasy and grandiose thinking giving us a yearning for a deep meaningful connection to the rest of humanity. On a personal level we are feeling the need to change the way we relate to others on a one-to-one basis, include a greater awareness of others. Venus sextile Saturn helps us restructure our feelings so we can coexist with others peacefully and Venus opposition Uranus is asking us to change our perceptions of women. In addition, Venus quincunx Chiron about the same time will cause us to get swept up in the pain and suffering of women. These are rather transpersonal ideals that we are working with this week.
On a geopolitical level, I suspect we will see and hear a lot more revelations like the Weinstein scandal as this is all reflective of greater trends emerging in California, the USA and the world. Despite all the political back and forth, I find the most interesting element to all of this is how the universe gives us opportunities regularly to advance, take a step up in consciousness. And often times, like this Thursday and Friday, a confluence of energies occurs to move us a bit faster than usual.
In the middle of the week, Saturn square Chiron, the last pass occurs on 11/2. With this aspect we feel a profound sense of separation as we are in a crisis to overcome what we don’t see in this world, and when we finally do see, we feel the pain of spiritual awakening, including feelings of shame and futility which humble us. All of this year, this aspect has been humbling us, showing us the pain that we haven’t seen in past, the pedophiles, the sexual harassment and rape in high places. And as the revelations regarding Weinstein and Hollywood flood the airwaves this week, you will also hear many women expressing a sense of futility and shame for not coming forth in the past. This is the kind of pain that Chiron brings, but it is essential if we are to address and move past the blockages to our spiritual awakening. These are the lessons of Chiron, the wounded healer.
The Sun (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) on Friday is a particularly important aspect to pay attention to this week. The Scorpio to Pisces trine is characterized as a gift of healing (Scorpio) is shared universally (Pisces). It’s the best for reclaiming lost elements of self, healing and recuperation, often associated with an angel coming into your life, including receiving help from the spirit world. In fact, early in the week when the Moon is in Pisces, with some really good aspects on Monday, and Tuesday (Halloween) and Wednesday (Day of the Dead holiday), so the whole early part of the week is a time to tune into the spirit world and see what messages you receive, they could be very helpful. We could all really use some of that assistance to help guide us through the other aspects, especially the Saturn square Chiron.

Saturn square Chiron
We are now at the last pass of this aspect, which has been an important factor this past year as it has unearthed a lot of truths regarding the pain and suffering (Chiron) the we don’t see, stuff that’s been swept under the carpet (Pisces). The recent revelations seem to be one of the major manifestations of this aspect. Not only because of the revelation element to it, but the career (Saturn) sacrifice or ending (Pisces) that is so characteristic of this aspect as well, much as we’ve seen so far.
As Saturn is in the final months of it’s death cycle, the square to a planet in Pisces produces these spectacular endings.
My best recommendation is to take a deep breath and do what this aspect enables us to do, overcome limitations to what you don’t see, that means have trust in faith (Pisces). At this time we need to rely on faith to carry us through our own blindness. Often times trust takes the form of religious (Sagittarius) faith (Pisces), but it does not need to be that. Either way, this is the learning lesson necessary for success in the 4th quadrant of the chart.
We always read that Chiron is associated with pain, but there is so much more to it than that. Chiron is associated with how your spirit connects with your body. The Saturn square is forcing us to make a firm spirit-body connection regardless of how much pain is brought up in the process. So whatever helps you enhance and maintain your spirit-body connection is what you should focus on this week.
In the end, this aspect teaches us that to be successful (Saturn) on the outside, you must be humble (Pisces) on the inside.
Certainly tomorrow’s group of aspects plays into the overall manifestation of this aspect. Sun trine Neptune tomorrow will help us find that humble space necessary to navigate our way through the pain and give us a little inspiration along the way. Add in the two Venus aspects for tomorrow and it looks like we have a major confluence of aspects that is bound to produce a major event. In addition, yet another Venus aspect, Venus quincunx Chiron occurring late this evening and in effect tomorrow as well. This aspect will leave us open and vulnerable to feeling the pain of others, especially women, getting swept up in it and feeling guilt or shame. Yet more reason to conclude that the universe is asking us to change the way we relate to others on a one-to-one basis, because it’s not just Venus, it’s Libra as well.
Venus sextile Saturn is in effect this evening as well as tomorrow morning.
With three planetary aspects today, it will be hard to distinguish the effects between the three. It is a rather significant day astrologically, today is like that spot along a river where the course of the river begins to narrow and turn, the currents begin to flow together and more froth bubbles up to the top. Powerful currents in society begin to coalesce and it’s an exciting day. Two outer planet aspect for Venus means our affections (Venus) lean towards grander things than usual and Sun trine Neptune brings an expansion of consciousness, fantasy and grandiose thinking leaving us yearning for a deep meaningful connection to the rest of humanity. Today you have an opportunity to reconnect with a lost aspect of yourself. Recommend you clear your mind of all useless distractions and coarse ideas, bring yourself to a delicate and perceptive frame of mind where you can tune in to the subtle vibrations around you and let them lift you up to a state of higher intelligence. And to top it all off, the Full Moon this evening will bring a lot of restless energy to Friday night activities.
1:31am – Venus (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) With this aspect, affection is shown in a mature way, by attending to your duty and obligations. It’s a good aspect for doing demanding work, paying close attention to detail. Saturn asks us to seek security in relationships, so today we are more cordial with others because we need others more today in order to find our place in the world. Folks more willing to be of service to others. A good aspect for business, Venus brings the art of persuasion to the deal. A good time for relationships, aspect encourages meaningful, realistic discussion on the issues affecting you both so you plan a better future together. Relationships that begins now withstand the test of time better. We are very receptive (Venus) to what is good for us and to cosmic forces (Sagittarius) that can alter our way of being if we let them in to our lives now.
Today Venus activates the coming Saturn trine Uranus aspect, so these two Venus aspects carry more weight today than usual. We really need to see them as a combination. The normally volatile interpretation for the latter will be alleviated somewhat by this aspect. Venus in it’s native sign is making a strong statement today that say that the divine feminine is a major element of whatever the Saturn trine Uranus brings about. Universal feminine principles are what we are trying to get in touch with today, what they mean to you and how you manifest them in your daily life. Together, I see this as a moment when we get some sort of correction regarding feminine ideals and principles.
Lately we have been treated to a steady stream of revelations of mistreatment of women coming out of Hollywood, the old casting couch, but only now it’s coming out like we’ve never seen before, this event is revealing a dramatic change in social evolution. A new paradigm is emerging and today with mark a significant day in that process. We should all seek to converse with others about the changes happening in society and share our feelings (Venus) about it all, what it really means to us, enlighten one another. Today the drama in Hollywood feels more personal and this accompanies a subtle shift in everyone’s perceptions.
2:46am – Moon enters Taurus. We are more sensual and steadfast for the next couple of days, more concerned with personal possessions and finances, feel the need to keep the pace, not do anything unsettling. Time to continue working on projects already started. Always the best time for massage.
11:26am – Moon (Taurus) opposition Jupiter (Scorpio) Emotions expand and we seek a crowd. Not interested in work, desire to spend money, indulge. Big appetite at lunch.
12:23pm – Sun (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) The trine from Scorpio to Pisces is gaining prominence these days. A gift of healing (Scorpio) is shared universally (Pisces). Scorpio regenerates as it heals and Pisces is where you put the lost parts of yourself, so this aspect enables you to reclaim lost elements of self. Today we experience life more deeply, more meaningful, soulful, compassionate and considerate, willing to share resources (Scorpio) with whomever needs it (Pisces). Wishful thinking, open to delusions, seeing the good side in others. Ego energies are low at this time as well. Brings up the idea of perfection and idealistic romanticism. Mind may drift into fantasy, good time for writing music and poetry, connection to the collective is stronger and we source feelings from the collective. Good time for healing work and meditation as well. It is of vital importance that we let universal forces into our lives at this time. Let down the ego, realize we are all connected, forgive others so that you can move on. If you never forget that you can never do it alone in life, you always need others to help you achieve your goals, then you will be in the best mindset to take advantage of this aspect. Cultivate your connection to the collective.
Society is ready to pull up the carpet and see what’s underneath. Neptune rules things that society sweeps under the carpet and tries for forget, including prisons and mental institutions, and this aspect is going to bring some of that up so we can deal with it. This aspect means more when we factors in Jupiter in Scorpio which amplifies and broadcasts all things Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn unearths and brings final judgment, this aspect could produce a lot of revelations. Secrets are revealed. We can handle it, today we have more compassion and willingness to overlook the bad side. All Pluto or Scorpio trines promise a change for the better, in this case, the change is collective, one we all share in.
Scorpio rules banking and we may see some news regarding fundamental changes in the banking industry which are a prelude to a bigger announcement at Jupiter trine Neptune on 12/2. There is a confluence of events around that time including Saturn entering Capricorn and fateful transits for the Federal Reserve while the world financial system is one big ponzi scheme ready to fall apart. Everyone is just waiting for a currency reset and we should here some news about that today.
9:42pm – Moon (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces) Very sensual and earthy, good for massage and rock medicine.
10:01pm – Venus (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) This is the more volatile of the two Venus aspects today. Today we react to the changing situation around us. We seek the unusual, stuff that is outside our normal routine. We seek stimulation and enlightenment, which often comes in the form of some new person in your life, either unsettling you or enlightening you, usually a bit of both. It should make for exciting discussions, exchanging new ideas while trying to find new common ground. Venus rules our personal space and this aspect asks us to expand that to include some new ideas. If you’re flexible then you’re open to modernize your life in some way, maybe include more Uranian ideals into your life, get more involved in community efforts or just bring a new friend into your life.
Relationships undergo a test with this aspect. If the situation is stagnant and there has been no room left for change, or the unique side of yourself seems to be suffering, then this aspect gives you the ambition to break out of that and move into something new. So it can be disruptive to a relationship, but it usually brings much needed changes. You’ll need to be flexible.
As I mentioned above, Venus is activating the Saturn trine Uranus aspect coming on 11/11. The social undercurrents are pushing many things to the surface and this day should bring a shift in consciousness. Uranus brings surprises, and with the hard aspects involving Venus, a severing often occurs. Uranus opposition Venus is a classic divorce transit. Uranus liberates to the point of breaking a bond if necessary. This aspect encourages women to seek independence and equality, to stand as equals to men, with all the same rights and privileges, that is with the same Uranus quality to their lives, that means mobility and recognition as divine beings. These two Venus aspects today will bring more women out into the open to talk about sexual harassment in Hollywood and other places.
10:23pm – Moon (Taurus) opposition Sun (Scorpio). We can add the Full Moon to today’s excitement. Moon in Taurus is sensual, it likes to be stroked, while Scorpio loves to do the stroking. A time of strong emotional ups and downs as we seek outward expansion for the plans we started two weeks ago at the New Moon. A strong need for recognition from others causes a lot of display behavior, subconscious urges come to the surface and we charge ahead like a bull (Taurus) and go to extremes (Scorpio). With the accompanying planetary aspects this will be a powerful Full Moon, sure to bring a lot of energy up in folks. It should make for an exciting Friday evening.
Moon in Taurus give us just one aspect today. Continue projects already started.
6:49am – Moon (Taurus) trine Pluto (Capricorn) Positive energy to regenerate your personal environment, brings a change for the better. Capable of great assistance in someone’s life, sincere nurturing and caring.
Moon in Gemini keeps us mentally active today. Mercury enters Sagittarius where it will be for the rest of the years.
1:29am – Moon (Taurus) opposition Mercury (Scorpio) Emotions conflict with conscious mental processes, obsessive thinking.
2am – Daylight Savings Time ends. So we’re now in Pacific Standard Time.
2:26am – Moon enters Gemini. We’re more mentally active for the next couple of days. Emotional fulfillment comes from Gemini activities. Writing and speaking more as we catch up on missed connections. Feel we need to complete things before the next cycle so we’re restless and may need to slow down.
11:19am – Mercury enters Sagittarius. Until January 12, 2018. Almost 10 weeks as Mercury goes Retrograde on 12/3 at 29d Sagittarius, back down to 13d, goes Direct on 12/23. Mercury is fallen in Sagittarius, although it is not nearly as problematic as it is for other planets in their fallen sign. Mercury in Sagittarius has a generally positive outlook, idealistic, good sense of humor, but no brakes on the mouth, so they say whatever is on their mind without considering if it’s appropriate. Typical Sagittarius themes are good for the consciousness mind now, such as philosophy, higher education, sports and travel. Since Mercury is spending so much time in Sagittarius, it looks like the message is that we need to get a higher education on matters during this time. My father used to say that Sagittarius is just a Gemini that went to college.
4:53pm – Moon (Gemini) trine Mars (Libra) A bit more energy on Sunday afternoon to have a lively conversation (Gemini trine Libra).
8:58pm – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces) Hard to communicate (Mercury) because of things that you cannot see (Pisces), isolationism, self-deception, problems with siblings (Gemini). In these moments connection to animals can help which are associated with Neptune because they represent pathways into the dream world. They help open a pathway through the subconscious (Moon) mind and into the collective unconscious (Neptune) so you can find that missing connection to spirit.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
A good example to observe astrologically during this time is Corey Feldman, he’s the former child acting star who exposed the pedophiles in Hollywood back in 2013. First notice the fact that he has Saturn trine Uranus in his natal chart, so that gives him some synchronicity with this moment.
I want to show some interesting things with him. Let’s start with 10-28-2013, the day he released his memoir “Coreyography”. Notice the position of Uranus and Pluto at that time. He was manifesting the Uranus square Pluto aspect through concurrent transits to his natal Uranus. He was being very rebellious, bringing things done in the dark to the light. Very much becoming the agent of radical change like the Uranus square Pluto aspect asked us all to do at that time. The aspect manifested through him on a macro level.
Now, he is once again in the news, being asked for a statement regarding Weinstein. Check out the quincunxes. Uranus quincunx Jupiter. Pluto quincunx Mercury, exact on 10/20. Amazing, once again the quincunx indicates he is getting swept up in a collective movement. I am fascinated at the quincunx as what it does to you, how it pulls your energy into a collective movement to transform society. If you think of these aspects as a two-way street, energy flows both ways, we could say that his wisdom (Jupiter) is being inserted on a macro level into the collective process of evolution (Uranus). And his voice or his opinion (Mercury) is being inserted on a macro level into the collective process of death-rebirth (Pluto). This is how the universe collects it’s due, through the quincunxes. No other transit is more closely associated with death because if you can’t let it go willingly, then the universe needs to take your body in order to get it. I suspect that if Corey Feldman had not revealed what he did back in 2013, he would be having serious problems now, much worse than he is. I’ll leave a link a good story about what he is going through now. I pray that he makes it through this time ok.
And with the Saturn square Chiron aspect forming transits to the USA’s natal Mercury at 24d Cancer, it looks like the USA is set for a painful political adjustment this month. On 10/30, Saturn quincunx Mercury, authority makes an important and fateful announcement. On 11/17, Chiron trine Mercury, pain and suffering of the nation is the topic of conversation, bringing feelings of shame and futility.
Notice the coming Saturn trine Uranus makes transits to his natal Neptune. This tells me that he is going to take a step up, as they say in England. Also note Chiron quincunx Pluto, something powerful in his life is dying away. It would not surprise me if we get some news soon regarding when he will be king.
That’s all for weekly astrology notes. Thanks for viewing and thanks for liking my video and please subscribe if you haven’t already. Many blessings and have a great day.
