12:51am – Mercury (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) Always an exciting aspect, makes for interesting conversations and one to one encounters. Mentally stimulating, lots of new ideas, new ways of looking at an old problem, desire to break from from limited thinking. Look for a surprise, a sudden change of plans, be flexible and ready to roll with whatever comes your way Saturday evening to Sunday morning. A sudden flash of insight or exciting idea may come to mind. Very open-minded, mentally liberated to the point where you say whatever you want to say, no inhibition on speaking. Overcome traditional modes of expression. You’ll need to be able to back-up what you say (Mercury), the enlightening quality of Uranus has a tendency to cause us to forget practical reality and we loose inhibition too much. Could bring up some nervous tension, there is just more stimulation for the mind now. Good time to do something creative with your hands. Aspect brings about interesting encounters, someone who could change your life or bring a new enlightened perspective, help you to see things in a new way. Also could produce confrontations and erratic driving habits. Be careful while driving.
4:19am – Moon enters Virgo. We are more fastidious and interested in intellectual pursuits for the next couple of days. Time to focus on health and diet.
6:14am – Moon (Virgo) sextile Jupiter (Scorpio). Now with Jupiter in Scorpio, we’ll be looking at this aspect each month as an opportunity for healing. Opens the heart to deep feelings of commitment and helps develop the emotional security necessary for the death-rebirth process.

We’re more efficient and patient with others, more able to share the creative (Sun) side of ourselves.
In the natal chart, sextiles and trines to Saturn are what other people would say they like about you because these are the things that you do in a conservative manner, in keeping with the status quo, responsible, dependable, not rebellious, while at the same time it seems effortless and sincere because it’s a harmonious aspect. The diminutive Sun in Libra is slowed down by Saturn giving us lots of understanding of others and willingness to share with others (Libra). Aspect is great for relationships, increases longevity, good time to talk about what’s important to both of you. Relationships that start now last longer and grow little by little, in a safe and certain way.
In the 3rd quadrant, the quadrant of self-expansion, this aspect brings together the social skills of Libra with the wisdom and enthusiasm of Sagittarius. It’s a good time for social gatherings. Folks interested in sharing their feelings about their career and what’s important to them in life. A good time to make plans for the future and to share ideas with others about their plans for the future.
10:44am – Moon (Virgo) trine Pluto (Capricorn) A strong burst of energy. Confident. Skillful use of resources leads to success. Strong inner strength gives you the ability to help others.

In the evening Mercury conjunct Jupiter begins to take effect making it wonderful night to unravel deep mysteries with enhanced psychic abilities. Good time for meditation.
12:59am – Mercury enters Scorpio. Until 11/6. Mercury in Scorpio is often quiet, but not because they are shy, more because they are aware of the power of their words and choose to use them wisely and to their advantage. And when they say something, they really mean it, very sincere and committed to their word. For the next few weeks, we are looking to get to the heart of the matter, not satisfied with superficial answers, we want to study the matter deeply and thereby come to a greater understanding of the whole. Harder to be fooled, a bit suspicious-minded, like a criminal or the police, more capable of dealing with the difficult issues. In need of vital information for your survival, even to the point of showing an interest in the insights of psychics or maybe getting in touch with your own psychic abilities.
4:27am – Moon conjunct Mars (Virgo). High energy gets us going in the morning. Nice compliment to the previous, brings added confidence. Void of Course begins.
10:35am – Moon enters Libra. We are more in need of companionship over the next couple of days as we define our emotional needs largely on our ability to make our partner happy. Good time to spend with your partner. We find emotional fulfillment through seeking harmony and balance.
6:57pm – Moon conjunct Venus (Libra) Very congenial, pleasant and harmonious. Affectionate and open to anything having to do with relationships. Emotionally very receptive and delicate. Time for poetry and softly spoken words of devotion.
Mercury conjunct Jupiter happens early Wednesday morning and is more in effect on Tuesday evening, making it a wonderful night to unravel deep mysteries with enhanced psychic abilities.

An abundance of inspirational conversation make it an enlightening with Mercury conjunct Jupiter. Our minds are more connected to cosmic forces. We’re able to connect the dots and fill in the missing pieces to the puzzle. Searching for clues reveals wonderful insights.
1:55am – Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Scorpio) A big day for the news. Generally speaking, we’d expect an abundance (Jupiter) of communication (Mercury) especially about money (Scorpio). However in Scorpio, there is a lot that is under the surface, much that isn’t said. A quiet reserve pervades with the anticipation (Jupiter) that vital information (Scorpio) may be revealed, like a volcano going off, which could transform the landscape. Let’s hope it does so we’ll could see some important revelations. This is an important aspect for Jupiter in Scorpio, even though it’s still very early part of in the sign, we expect to get some news about what Jupiter is planning on doing in Scorpio, the kinds of things it will reveal, maybe some really intriguing information. I hope it’s not just another big lie meant to manipulate and control the masses because it will be hard to fool folks under this aspect.
On a personal level, deep (Scorpio) perceptions (Jupiter) overtake the conscious thought processes (Mercury) and it feels quit good, feel more psychic and sensual and you want to explore and investigate, have a compulsion to travel or to unravel mysteries. You may prefer to be quiet, atypically, but perceive a lot. Very inspirational, lots of hope, positive attitude, connect with cosmic forces and perceive patterns in the environment (Jupiter), you can connect the dots and fill the holes in your thinking process, able to adapt, overcome obstacles to your thinking, purge self-sabotaging thought patterns, think carefully and plan ahead. Lots of psychic awareness, especially regarding the thoughts of others. A good time for social gatherings but also for meditation. A day to gain valuable insights.
6:02pm – Moon (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) Secrets are revealed. Unconscious (Moon) thoughts and motivations slip us up, worried about what others have. Paranoid and defensive, desire to isolate yourself, could bring disruptions.
An energetic and stimulating day with Sun opposition Uranus. Folks are headstrong and looking to break out of a stagnant situation. Gentle Libra gets wounded easily by the impersonal Uranus. It could be a restless day with unusual behavior. Feeling the need for freedom and liberty. Be careful, some may throw caution to the wind. Be prepared for upset or sudden surprises. But if you don’t get swept away by others and instead insist on maintaining your sense of harmony and balance, an opportunity to realize your highest potential awaits you.
6:24am – Moon (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) Early morning may give us a few orderly moments for the day.
10:34am – Sun (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) This aspect brings a restless day with lots of surprises. We are looking for something new and innovative to stimulate the mind and open us up to new possibilities. Along the Aires-Libra axis we are looking to incorporate something new into our identity. And with Libra involved there is a strong need to incorporate more freedom in your relationships. You may be looking for someone to enlighten you or just give you a change of scenery. Today, we feel more curious and are more attracted to the unusual. Consequently, you could have some unusual exchanges with people today.
Today we are more likely to engage one another on a variety of topics. Folks are headstrong and trying to persuade others to go along with them. You may need to stand your ground, and if you do it diplomatically (Libra) then you’ll win. You’ll need to be flexible.
Aspect can bring unsettling people or circumstances. Whomever comes into your life is meant to teach you something important about yourself. Be ready for a sudden change of plans. Use caution today, remember your limitations. Aspect may encourage you to throw caution to the wind and do something against your better judgment. You may need to calm down if the energy gets too intense. Ask yourself if you have left room for adequate expression of your unique self in life. If not, this energy could come back at you as disruptive circumstances meant to bring things out into the light (Uranus). Also the diminutive Sun in Libra is shy and sensitive, therefore may be ill equipped to deal with the impersonal and radical confrontation Uranus can bring. Don’t go looking for confrontation or expect others to understand your feelings.
Getting a handle on Uranus energy is such an important aspect to succeeding life, without that you cannot achieve your highest potential in life. Today we have an opportunity to turn the tables on that energy and use Sun in Libra to reflect (Libra) back the same force that anyone throws at you, but in a peaceful and harmonious way. In this way you can embody the spirit of evolution without the chaos and change just for the sake of change behavior that is only counter productive in the long run.
More interested in science. You may have lots of good ideas today, new ways of solving old problems. You may want to write them down, but you’ll need to review them later to see if they are practical.
12:04pm – Moon (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) Disruptions about noon. Folks restless and looking to challenge the system. This one could bring crowds into the street. Not good for digestion. Be careful of spicy foods.
12:12pm – Moon conjunct Sun (Libra). The New Moon. It’s sure to be a month of surprises with the New Moon sitting in close opposition to Uranus, the planet of change. Look for a bolt out of the blue this month, a ray of hope, and with it a great inspiration to follow your dreams. Your higher self, symbolized by Uranus the water-bearer, who shares his intelligence and wisdom freely with all of mankind, brings an electric shock to lift you out of your complacence, re-inspire you, maybe bring someone into your life to enlighten you or to disrupt your life if that’s what’s necessary. Strong desire to break free, liberate yourself and others, be a part of some social movement. It is a month to learn something new, break out of your old routine and re-ignite the evolutionary spirit within you. Changes and disruptions in relationships also more likely. Void of Course begins.
6:41pm – Moon enters Scorpio. We are more passionate and moody for the next couple of days. Scorpio brings out intense and volatile emotions that can erupt at a moment’s notice. Use the energy to regenerate the home environment.
10:41pm – Moon conjunct Jupiter (Scorpio) Feeling very sensual and lucky. Desire to be in a crowd where you can easily pick up deep psychological insights in yourself and others. Good time to observe others, get psychic impressions about them.
Moon in Scorpio brings us two wonderful aspects today. A deep, meaningful feeling pervades enabling us to make a sincere connection with others.
4:23am – Moon conjunct Mercury (Scorpio) Emotions and intellect working very well together. Scorpio acts like a volcano to bring instincts (Moon) up into conscious awareness (Mercury).
5:15pm – Moon (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) An opportunity to use healing energy (Scorpio) to reclaim lost elements of self (Neptune). Very sincere, tender and caring. Open to helping others.
Moon in Scorpio makes it a day to recuperate and regenerate the home environment.
3:23am – Moon (Scorpio) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Early morning, a bolt of energy, but all that Scorpio energy makes us absorbed.
Get out of the house and explore today with Moon in Sagittarius. Mars enters Libra and Sun enters Scorpio.
4:35am – Moon (Scorpio) sextile Mars (Virgo). Early morning full of energy, good time for a workout or a yoga session. Void of Course begins.
4:57am – Moon enters Sagittarius. We are more open-minded for the next couple of days. Desire for travel and adventure, sports and recreation. Sagittarius brings out the spontaneous nature in us, childlike and curious, always interested in something new.
11:30am – Mars enters Libra. Until 12/10. Mars rules Aires so it in in it’s fallen sign while in Libra, where Mars lacks the impetus to initiate the ways it wants to, prone to laziness. Libra is the scales of justice, and Mars in Libra is quick to confront injustice or unfairness wherever they see it, but this can also come off as domineering, requiring everyone to live by your rules. The charge during this time is to exercise our diplomatic skills, don’t be afraid to pour on the charm for the sake of persuasion. Just don’t loose your identity (Mars) to someone else (Libra).
10:27pm – Sun enters Scorpio. Until 11/23. Happy Birthday to the Scorpio people. Always a good time of year, folks just more determined to make it through the day. The shorter days are upon us and the superfluous things seem to fall away. It’s time to regenerate, focus on what’s really important, healing the body and mind. With Jupiter now also in Scorpio, it may seem a bit more jovial than usual. We are more aware of our power and are keen to observe and look for ways to grow. Opportunism is in season.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
The recent desire to separate from the rest of the country is actually a permanent fixture of California politics as is reflected in with Uranus and Pluto quincunx Jupiter, they have always wanted to change the system. Whenever you have a challenging aspect between Uranus/Aquarius and Jupiter/Sagittarius, you have someone who is not happy with tradition and wants to change society. They are born rebels who always want to go a different path in life. This natal combination totally explains California’s distinctness and long-standing desire to split from the rest of the County.
California just passed a new law which says that California will no longer cooperate with Federal authorities when it comes to issues they don’t agree with, most notably immigration and the sanctuary cities laws. Well this sort of behavior is exactly what started the civil war, States refusing to follow the Federal government. Notice the transit Jupiter opposition Uranus and Pluto. This transit amplified the existing issue. It is a foreshadowing of much more to come on this issue.
This issue will explode next year when Uranus makes the conjunction and quincunx. 3 passes. May 12-15, 2018 first pass. Dec 10-14, 2018 second pass. March 1-6, 2019 third pass. So what we are looking at here is a clear indication that a secessionist movement will likely begin next year and it will become a major issue in the winter of 2018-2019. In addition we see Uranus opposition Venus, a classic divorce transit, as well as Ascendant and the Moon, so this looks rather portentous. In fact Uranus coming above the horizon and entering the 7th house is a classic transit to sever long-standing ties and move out on your own. The desire for independence will be intense, even fanatical.
The last time Uranus came around to this point was 1935, the golden era of Hollywood, the era that transformed California into what it is today. Ever since then California has been dominated by Hollywood and all that it represents. This passage of Uranus will bring renewal likely resulting in an end to Hollywood rule. The Uranus return is an interesting aspect for nations, which experience this transit far more than humans with far more change. The soviet union fell apart on their Uranus return. Saudi Arabia has undergone massive turmoil and calls for change on their recent Uranus return. Whole scale change is inevitable with this transit. And it does not matter how intelligent, modern, rich, mobile, eccentric, etc (Uranus qualities) you were before the transit, Uranus brings change no matter what. So, since the Hollywood crowd has been in control of California politics ever since the last Uranus return, it’s a sure bet the coming change will bring the opposite. This is because Uranus rules our process of evolution, so a new paradigm is needed, a shift that is as fundamental as what the Soviet Union went through when they fell apart at their Uranus return.
And what is so ironic about all of this is that the movement to severe California from the rest of the USA will result in Hollywood getting severed from California politics. As someone who lives in the Sierra Nevada mountains in eastern California, I can tell you that this region will never secede and if the Hollywood liberals try there will be a split within California, the State of Jefferson will rise.
Considering the level of rhetoric being slung about at this point, it is entirely possible this could lead to a serious set of circumstances, like an actual attempt at secession and subsequent military intervention to stop it. What we are seeing in Catalonia now is highly probable in California next year.
It looks like he was the first big fall since the Vegas shooting. His behavior has been well known for years, he is a major democratic donor, why now? If you read between the lines, the power structure he was supporting, the Democrats, is in big trouble.
Let’s take a look at his transits. We don’t have his birth time which is a drawback. Let’s start with the recent Sun conjunct Mercury aspect which made a close opposition to his natal Mercury. Like so many times in the past, the Mercury opposition gets you in the news. Then there is the Jupiter quincunx Sun, almost a degree away, though there is that classic element of getting caught up in the karma of others, which I think is the case because he is part of the Hollywood power elite that is due to fall.
The strongest transit is Pluto square Mercury, which is now ripe for resolution, anytime between last Direct motion and last pass, which will be on 11/15. This transit is characterized by intense (Pluto) exchanges (Mercury) as well as significant challenges to your thinking. A time when you need to reform (Pluto) your thinking. But it is an otherwise positive transit when your understanding of life is deepened in a valuable way. Pluto transits can vary significantly, depends on your karma.
Not the normal sexual misconduct transit, though a Pluto transit and the only one he’s getting, and the Sun, Mercury opposition to natal Mercury being the moment of revelation pretty much confirms that. My guess is that in his correct-time chart that is also an important point.
Ultimately for a guy like him his fate depends on how powerful his friends are, that’s where the quincunx takes on significance. What is happening to him now is not just the result of his actions but an entire group of individuals who are loosing power.
The fate of California is tied in to all of this. We are now witnessing a tectonic shift in California politics. California’s Uranus return will coincide with a complete changing of the guard. The Hollywood paradigm that has dominated California since the last Uranus return is now about to get crushed under the wave of progress, much like the wave they rode in on crushed the former gold rush paradigm. Weinstein is just the tip of the iceberg that includes all of California politics.
So let’s look at the transits for the man who acts like he wants to start a civil war. The transit that I attribute to this most recent action is Saturn square Neptune, career sacrifice, throwing away all he has ever worked for (Saturn) to follow some delusional ideal (Neptune). This is the exact same transit the USA just went through during the recent Vegas shooting. And just like with the dark cabal that did the Vegas shooting, the result is revelation of his delusions. Just as the dark cabal revealed themselves under this transit, so has Jerry Brown. Now it is just a matter of time before the end of both of them. What one does under this transit is very fateful.
And just like Weinstein he too has a planet as 17d Aires that is about to get the last pass of Pluto square Sun, last pass 11/14. So Brown is feeling a crisis to demonstrate his power right now, to control (Pluto) the people around him and promote himself to a position of great power. He is jealous and vindictive (Pluto), the negative side of Pluto. And just to point out, just like Weinstein, the Mercury opposition put him in the news.
Saturn trine Uranus coming Nov 11.
