Dear Friend and Reader:
Next week we have one of the most interesting astrological days I’ve ever seen. On the morning of Thursday, Oct. 23, the Moon, Venus and the Sun are in Libra. By that evening, all three have moved into Scorpio, and then there will be an eclipse of the Sun conjunct Venus.
This is what I call a proving moment — an opportunity to see astrology display its properties in real time, in real life. What will change that day? What that is hidden will reveal itself? By proving I don’t mean ‘proof positive’. I mean a demonstration of what is possible. There are actually a few of those moments in the neighborhood right now.
Libra and Scorpio present a vivid contrast of energies. That is a characteristic of adjoining signs — they change element, as well as type of sign (Libra is cardinal; Scorpio is fixed). In many ways adjoining signs are more opposite than opposite signs. Libra is an air sign, ruled by Venus. Scorpio is a water sign, ruled by Mars.
With three planets crossing that imaginary line, followed by a solar eclipse, that’s a lot of momentum moving in the direction of Scorpio. This will help shift the discussion, I think it will precipitate events, and I think it will describe a psychological pattern that we’ll be living with for a while.
