The current spotlight on the lopsided sexual power dynamic in Western culture (especially in the U.S.) is overdue, though that does not make it any easier for many people. Amanda Painter suggests that with a New Moon in Scorpio on Saturday making interesting aspects, it seems the cosmos is asking us to consider where we go from here with the need for healing and regeneration.

Minor planet (47171) Lempo was first discovered on Oct. 1, 1999, and 18 years later was named after a Finnish goddess of fire, fertility and passion. Unfortunately, following a 13th-century extended visit from the Christians, she was recast as a demon, and her name became a swear word. Learning this made Amy Elliott a little miffed.

By examining the sum total of what the Sun, Moon, Mars and Pluto are doing, Len Wallick ventures into some potentially uncomfortable territory in this column. Helpfully, he also refers to the very same astrology to show you a way out.

It can seem impossible at times to achieve lift-off when it comes to making positive changes on even the most basic personal level, given all that one is up against. Yet sometimes making progress really just comes down to keeping a little momentum going. As Amanda Painter writes, some of this week’s astrology (especially Venus conjunct Jupiter) appears to support that.

Today, Len looks up. Then he looks out over his native land, and ultimately around the world to offer his perspective regarding celestial and current events. If you find the correlations to be convincing, you might also come away with something useful, regardless of who or where you are.

Starting with the Taurus Full Moon, Len Wallick envisions a relay race in the sky. One after another, four of astrology’s so-called personal planets will take a turn to advance the sum of their archetypes until they finally hand off to — well, read for yourself.

Finding Strength No Matter How the Light Breaks Through

This week’s Taurus Full Moon, exact on Saturday, has a busy chart. Amanda Painter drew a tarot card for some help in determining an overarching theme: the strength and resolve — really, the faith in oneself — needed to allow some kind of breakthrough, break out or even a clean break to allow yourself to go beyond whatever has been containing you, beyond what you’re used to.

Evidence and the Moon

The phases of the Moon are clear to see. Less evident is where on the zodiac the Moon is expressing from. As Len Wallick points out today, the fact that November initiates with an Aries Moon could conceivably be made to initiate a new phase in your personal evolution.

In keeping with all you can (and can’t) see in the night sky right now, Len Wallick today encourages you to watch the lunar flow this weekend. Based on where the Moon is, and what it is moving towards, you can gather valuable clues about how to be in that flow yourself.

What’s the difference between falling down an aimless rabbit hole and following your instincts to uncover a mystery, or to get beneath the surface of something in a way that changes you? The activities can look the same at the outset. Amanda Painter suggests that with the current Scorpionic astrology, what you do with what you discover, or how it changes you, may be the defining factor.

By the time next week is underway, five sign rulers other than the Moon will have changed sign in a fortnight. As Len Wallick sees it, that flurry of ingresses will correspond to a change of context for your life – a shift of background you might very well be able to take advantage of.

Today there’s a New Moon in Libra that’s just loaded with energy. Chances are you’ve already been feeling it this week. Amanda Painter explains that, despite the fact that a Moon waning to its new phase tends to be lower-energy, this one is plugged into a high-voltage outlet — Uranus — which might be sending up sparks in your relationships.
