This fall comes with big energetic shifts. We are now embarking on the final leg of the journey leading to a significant astrological event that will occur on January 12th, 2020 - the conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. The last time this happened was in January of 1518. The stage is being set now through the energetic prism of the current lunar cycle in Libra. This carries with it a heavy dose of the energies of Scorpio, punctuated by the involvement of the sign's planetary ruler - Lord of the Underworld, Pluto.
As we set the stage for the big finale, (which is the meeting of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12th,) we do so through the energetic prism of the sun, light of consciousness, shining from Libra, the sign of other, relationship, beauty, peace, harmony, balance, fairness and justice.
To understand how this is all weaving together, we look to the rulerships - in this case Pluto and Saturn and the signs they rule, and Libra and Aries and their planetary rulers, to gain insight as the sun moves through the signs of Libra, Scorpio, and then Sagittarius, actually ending up in Capricorn to shine the light of consciousness on the stage of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January.
Pluto Direct in Capricorn, Mercury into Scorpio, Mars into Libra, Venus into Scorpio, with Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio on Deck....
Last week, the same day in fact that Pluto stationed direct, there were two additional big shifts of energy: Mercury moving into Scorpio and Mars moving into Libra. On top of that, Venus moved into Scorpio on October 8th, and the Mercury retrograde preshadow will begin October 11th, with Mercury stationing retrograde in Scorpio on Samhain/Halloween on October 31st.
The sun moves into Scorpio officially beginning a month of Mars/Pluto ruled "Scorpio season" on October 23rd, but with all of the activity over the past week and a half involving Pluto and Scorpio, including the Libra's ruler Venus moving on into Scorpio, this Libra season is carrying a strong Scorpio vibe.
With the autumn equinox, the sun brought our conscious focus to relationships, balance, harmony, fairness and justice as it entered Libra. As we move through the lunar cycle of Libra, we will also be exploring the axis of the zodiac that Libra forms with opposite sign Aries - the axis of self and other, the axis of relationship. At the same time, with Saturn and Pluto now direct in Capricorn, we are moving towards the culmination of a huge astrological cycle that was begun in 1518, when the last Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurred. With Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn forming a square angle to Libra, and all of the activity now occurring there, we are now being tasked with working through some challenges between the two. Part of these challenges are showing up because of the extra dose of Pluto and Scorpio we are experiencing even from the very beginning of this Libra season - Pluto direct in Capricorn squaring Venus in Libra, Mercury into Scorpio, Mars into Libra, and Venus into Scorpio, with the Aries full moon and then sun into Scorpio on deck, followed by the upcoming Mercury retrograde in Scorpio.
Mercury will turn direct in Scorpio just two days before the sun shifts our light of consciousness from the deep truths of Scorpio to the personal truths and beliefs of Sagittarius. Sagittarius brings us the optimistic enthusiasm that allows us to set off on our Fool's Journey out into the world.
But first, over the coming weeks, we must make that journey into our own underworld and into our own subconscious to meet the truth of our own shadows. This need not be a journey of sorrow and loss though. We have been doing this work for some time now. We have been preparing for this. And this in turn is preparing us for our big date with destiny in January, for when Pluto and Saturn come together in Capricorn, we are being given the opportunity - an opportunity that does not present itself once in a lifetime, or even once a century - to reclaim our own inherent power and authority and recalibrate our relationship to it in the world in which we exist.
