Your Daily Ophiuchus Horoscopes ~ November 2012


A Daily Forecast & Exploration of the Wonders of the Natural Zodiac

Oph ‘Scopes are a one-size-fits-all interpretation of the strongest celestial energies for the day. But more than that, they are teaching tools so you can learn how and why Ophiuchus works and pick up the rhythm for yourself.

The readings are based on selected alignments of planets and asteroids moving through the constellations, not the zodiac signs.

Because Ophiuchus is the center of the Startistics and Astronomologer Universe and because of the pivotal role this new ‘sign’ plays in the New Age on a grander scale than that of any other ‘sign’, the Oph ‘Scopes are as much about and for you as they are perspectives for awakening Ophiuchans and those awakening TO Ophiuchus. Remember, you very well could have planets, asteroids, or house cusps in Ophiuchus!

Whether you’re an aspiring Astrologer or Astronomologer or you just want to know what the stars have in store for you on the day, there will be something real and relevant written here every day that you can use. Just sort through what you don’t understand to get to what you need to know.

As with anything offered on Startistics or Astronomologer or anywhere else on the Internet for that matter, take what you can use and just leave the rest.

An overview of the Month of November 2012

If you don’t see your “sign” here,don’t take it personally. It simply means there are no major planetary transits taking place there. Find the planetary intelligence that normally speaks for your “sign” and see what’s going on around it.

Taurus

Jupiter turned retrograde in Constellation Taurus last month — as if we needed any more complications in the House of Money and Working for a Living.

Progress is always slow in Taurus. But when Jupiter is retrograde, it’s like the benevolent Beast of Burden who is normally so dependable has suddenly lost interest in pulling the cart. Or could it be that those who manage the business affairs that rule our lives are changing their policies and re-thinking the spiritual value of Money?All aspects of Life at Home from family relationships to job woes to money management will continue to appear problematic as those behind the scenes manipulate and experiment. All we can do is hang in there until January 30, 2013 (ugh! yes — I know — more waiting waiting waiting!) when Jupiter reverses direction and we get to see how decisions made in the Jupiter Rx period are going to affect us.

Earth Healers on the way to Lost River Gorge, North Woodstock NH

Damn the resistance! The economy may be slow but Beautiful Taurus native Judi Blue Eyes and her Power Circle of Earth Healers have no plans to step or slow down their efforts to bring their Healing Light and Love to Earth Mother every chance they get.

Join Startistics in supporting Judi and her Tribe as they carry the Spirit of Healing this month to an especially troubled piece of Sacred Ground that we’ll read about in Oph ‘Scopes in plenty of time to meet up with the gang in Real Time.

Update: The Sacred Ground Healing work has been pushed to December. Look for details in Your Daily Ophiuchus Horoscopes.

Virgo

How does your Garden grow?

Venus spends almost the entire month of November sowing the seeds of Love and Beauty in Constellation Virgo, bringing a refreshing change of vibrational pace for which we will all be grateful.

Venus keeps everything about women, especially women’s health, in the limelight. The planet has probably never seen more beauty and power issuing from the Women who work with Mother Nature than it has last month and this month.

If you are a Light Worker on a mission to revive, heal and bring beauty back to an industry-ravaged planet, heads-up! This is your Time. You’re being empowered at a rate and level never before seen here, thanks to Virgo’s partnership with Ophiuchus. Your power is only limited in your own Mind. Seeing is not necessarily Believing this Month. Let your imagination run as free as the Wild Woman (or Feminine Side) you have and are at Heart. Just because people aren’t seeing the results of your work with their physical eyes doesn’t mean it’s not there Ordinary folks will need time to catch up with the higher vibrations of your visions.

It’s like baking a cake. If ordinary people saw your dream before the thought form was properly clothed, they might put their own thoughts onto it and wreck your manifestation. That’s what happens when you open the oven door too soon. You let the hot air out and the cold air in. The cake falls.

Be bold! Be outrageously Beautiful! Earth Mother is counting on YOU!

Saturn will remain in the “Under the Skirt of the Virgin” area of the constellation through the end of the month and for a few days into December, continuing to cause problems for women who are being beset by not only their own stubborn Health Issues but the issues of their loved ones and their clients. Some of these problems are initiatory as the body attempts to throw off toxins and impediments — blockages in the intestines and what-not both actual and allegorically. It is vital that you attend to all health issues promptly and with Intent.

If you are doing double duty — you’re not only in Service to Humanity with your group work but administering to people who need your individual care, like family and friends, don’t forget to take care of yourself first. You can’t safely dispense healing and wisdom from an empty or a poisoned cup. Take the time to attend to your own vibrations and energy fields. Recover, revivify, and refresh yourself before you share your energy with others.

Libra

Libra, formerly the original giant claws of the Ancient Giant Scorpion, will be busy busy busy this month and for many months to come. As November opens the Sun has just entered Constellation Libra bringing us all the Power of Consciousness we need to assess our relationships and put them in order before things get really crazy on the 23rd when the Sun plunges into Constellation Scorpius.

Achieving relationship balance is not going to be easy (is it ever?) as Mercury turns retrograde in Constellation Scorpius on 11/06/12. Mercury’s mission: RE-turn to Libra to RE-test our relationships: once in retrograde (a RE-run) and again after it turns direct again (one more chance to work things out harmoniously — even if the dance ends in good-bye).

Inside the Mercury retrograde period there will be a Total Solar Eclipse on the 13th and a Mercury-Sun Combust on the 17th.

If all of these planetary machinations in Libra don’t shake things up enough to show you who your Friends really are and whether the people you’re in bed with are good for you or pure poison, then I don’t know what to say. Maybe it will take another incarnation for some folks to work off the heart damage karma.

Scorpio-Ophiuchus

November starts out with Mercury at “the nubs” of Constellation Scorpius. What are “the nubs”? It’s where the Chaldeans and the Romans severed the original claws from the body of the Ancient Giant Scorpion.

Don’t tell me Astrology hasn’t changed in 2,000 years. Bone up on your Astrology history before you come at us with that bit of disinformation. No offense intended — I’m just reporting.

We will omit to make projections about future events here and talk about planetary transits of Scorpio-Ophiuchus in real time as they are happening. For one thing, Jupiter Rx in Taurus is affecting the entire Libra-Scorpius-Ophiuchus sector. And since the domain of Zodiac Sign Scorpio has lately been mostly about how some people get money out of others, whether by Inheritance or Legacies handed down when others meet with untimely death malevolently caused before they pass on, we don’t want to make rash assessments about energy behavior at either end of this Astrological polarity (Taurus-Scorpius) until Jupiter is traveling the straight-and-narrow path again (direct motion).

And since that won’t be until January 30 when the party is over and all the inner ring planets have long finished their Ophiuchus transits, that means we won’t be free to fairly gauge future behavior of the planets in Ophiuchus until this time next year.

In the meantime, Mars finishes up his transit of Constellation Ophiuchus, entering Constellation Sagittarius on the 12th of November where he continues to travel in the Serpens-Ophiuchus overhang zone of Sagittarius until approximately the 24th.

As noted above, we’ll talk about Ophiuchus transits in real time in the Oph ‘Scopes but will leave you with this suggestion to prepare you:

We are our own script writers. Fate is what is left over after we have passed up our opportunities to make our own way in life and make our Fortunes out of whatever materials we find on our Paths. There is always work to be done that we can do to improve our Future — even if it’s making the best of a horrible situation. It’s the choices we make every day that are the character-building exercises we need to carry us aloft into higher circles where the air is clearer and the atmosphere rarefied. We have to earn it. There will be no Free Passes given unless when we get to the New Age we want mentally and emotionally unhealthy people hooked on violence and abuse to be re-admitted into the Garden.

If you don’t want that, then we all have to do the footwork that sets the new industrial standard. This is especially true for the new Ophiuchus natives who are waking up to God Complexes waiting for them because of the World Savior picture we’ve been painting for them hoping will wake up to their full potential and actualize it.

Remember, Ophiuchus, you may either have “walked in” or been born into the body you’re occupying; but the body you woke up in is a human body endowed with human collective consciousness that is sick and/or broken. Remember the body is an extension of the Earth Mother. We are Flesh of Her Flesh. To understand the Human-Earth condition so you can deal with it, you have to work your way through it too. Otherwise you will have no affect here. You are at the core, whether male or fe-male, a Wounded Healer.

Next month when Mercury enters Constellation Ophiuchus we’ll talk about Bedside Manner & the Ego.

Sagittarius-Aquarius-Pisces

The transpersonal planets Pluto in Sagittarius, Neptune in Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula, Uranus retrograde in Pisces, and the “Rainbow Bridge” Centaur object Chiron in Constellation Aquarius continue to herd Humanity toward evolution and ascension.

Pluto in Sagittarius is spiritualizing and uplifting dark souls who are becoming Willing to be transformed into light souls. Nobody is beyond hope unless they make a self-defeating Free Will Choice — and even then we have to question whether any one of us truly understands the magnitude of the moment. The World is in Chaos. It is a time in which we are making our choices based on whatever we think we have at our disposal in terms of knowledge, information and belief. And these may be insufficient to make a decision of any magnitude at all. But we do it anyway.

Please pass the popcorn. ;-)

Neptune is directing the Eye of God to certain Aquarian principles to inspire us to co-create the Altruistic Human Society and illuminate the way.

Uranus Rx in Pisces is working with Pluto. Retrogrades of Uranus and Jupiter are holding off on the Mass Arrests scenario but promises all that those criminals who have Fiduciary Responsibility but will not or cannot use the gift of Free Will Choice in the best interests of those who elected and placed their Trust in them will be in a sense “asking” to have their Minds altered so that they DO understand that those who are Awakened will do whatever they have to do to put a stop to the Abuse of Power and Trust issue on the authority of the Golden Rule.

For that to happen, we must all learn new lessons about the Power of Mind so that we don’t abuse it ourselves in the process of bringing the transition about, thereby causing unnecessary harm.

And speaking of the Golden Rule, does anybody know off-hand where Mars was in the real sky on September 11, 2001? I do. Constellation Sagittarius.

The biggest news this month has to do with the 2012 Mars transit of Sagittarius starting on November 12th.

The ensuing weeks will be like students taking their Chemistry Lab College Finals at an atomic test site as we get to see if the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy has had its intended effect on the frequencies of Mars yet. Has Celestial Alchemy succeeded in downgrading Mars’ volatility in Sagittarius where his special expertise in generating fear, terror, anger and rage has been commanded to carry out heinous crimes against Humanity? We shall see.

We will all be tested. I’ve seen the test — it’s in the stars of course. I can give you a Sagittarius Ideal way to deal positively with fear-based negative vibrations (meaning destructive emotions and actions that are not constructive). And that is this:

In the Universal Hologram where We Are All One, each one of us is connected to other Human Souls on this planet in soul families and groups, soul classes, and the Human Species and World Soul. And if we can each suck it up this month — come what may — and turn e-motions around when confronted with the choice to channel our Red energy into Anger or the Courage to be the Peace we want to Have, believe me, our ability to avert even the smallest outburst in our personal lives WILL have a corresponding effect as the energy levels of our brothers and sisters to whom we are connected will experience a corresponding effect for balance and bringing about the desired Change of Heart in whoever needs it.

Libra will be involved in this harmonizing test and learning activity too. Ophiuchus will be standing by with healing & wisdom to dispense.

November 30 ~ Ophiuchus Sun, Taurus-Orion-Gemini Moon

  • Solar Cycle Theme: The Power of Transforming Relationships
  • Lunar Phase Theme: Building an Adventurous New Thought World
  • Moon Phase: Waning Gibbous
  • Moon aligns with
    • Delta, Epsilon and Zeta Orion (Mintaka, Alnilam, Alnitak – Orion’s Belt) and Orion Nebula
    • Alpha Orion (Betelgeuse)
  • Moon crosses the Galactic Equator from South to North (Galactic Earth North Lunar Node)
  • Asteroid Asclepius aligns with Alpha Virgo and Alpha Boötes (Spica and Arcturus)
  • Mercury Direct in Constellation Libra aligned with Beta Libra (Zubeneschamali)
  • Sun applies to alignment with Alpha Scorpius (Antares), Omega & Zeta (Han) Ophiuchus, Rho Ophiuchus
  • Quaoar in Serpens in Equatorial alignment with Alpha Ophiuchus (Rasalhague)
  • Mars in Sagittarius separating from conjunction with Pluto and Equatorial alignment with Alpha Lyra (Vega)
  • Pluto in Constellation Sagittarius – Square to – Uranus Rx in Constellation Pisces
  • Neptune in Constellation Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula

Orion’s Belt and M42 Orion Nebula

Again I’ll mention for the benefit of new readers that Ophiuchus Horoscopes build on each other. Definitions and discussions of certain areas of the sky are contained in the archived Oph Scopes. Today’s Lunar transit of Constellation Orion with all of its powerful celestial goodies and its crossing of the Galactic Plane are discussed in prior Oph ‘Scopes.

Bottom line: today’s a very powerful day. For those who are not awake and aware of the celestial potency in this zone, the Moon (our subconscious minds and the autonomic systems of our bodies) will pick up on it and our days will present us with reflections of the star power that is packed into this sector of the sky.

Asclepius | Rho Ophiuchus

Asclepius and Rho Ophiuchus featuring Alpha Scorpius (Antares)

By tradition, the Taurus Moon is good for building. The Sun in Ophiuchus contributes to that with one of its male aspects, Imhotep, having been a Master Architect and Builder-Stone Mason.

Combine that with the Sun’s approaching alignment with Alpha Scorpius, Omega Ophiuchus and the Rho Ophiuchus area of the sky and you have one seriously powerful day for Energy Work.

Jupiter Rx in Taurus is still holding things back a little. But Jupiter is not Saturnine just because he is in retrograde motion. He’s just not as Full Speed Ahead as he normally is.

Mars and Pluto in Sagittarius conjunct and square to Uranus Rx in Pisces are still dealing with issues of the Underworld, the criminal element, incarceration and other forms of institutionalization. Things are chaotic and complicated, but there is a definite movement in the works to deal with these issues. The future of Humanity depends upon how things turn out.

Mercury aligned with Zubeneschamali and Venus also in Libra are giving us encouragement that our relationship matters should be going more smoothly. Whether the field has been recently cleared so we have room to breathe or whether reconciliation has been achieved, enjoy the break if you’ve earned one one.

Saturn will be crossing into Libra shortly and she is still in the “Under the Skirt of the Virgin” area of the Zodiac Belt. That means women who have been suppressed and abused for a long time or who are crossed once they get into a position of authority are going to be making life harsh until gender parity and male/fe-male relationships reach peer status and Mutual Respect is earned.

It’s not necessarily women who need the Respect. There are some men in high places who have lost it and need to find it whether they are too blinded by their own power to see this reality or not. The demographic breakdown of how women and minorities voted in the recent 2012 Elections in the USA speaks loudly and directly to this point.

The Sun in Ophiuchus goes a long way toward healing and rebuilding relationships.

The Great Pyramids are aligned to the stars of Orion’s Belt

The Sun is in its final minutes of 2012 Scorpius transit time today. It will have crossed into Constellation Ophiuchus by the end of the day (UT time). But before it traverses the boundary, the Sun (your Power of Consciousness) wants to leave you progressive new Scorpius natives with a 2012 Birthday Present that will give you unbelievable energy and power that you will need in the first week of Ophiuchus.

If you’re familiar with the material on my two web sites then you have cutting edge insight into the full potential for you cosmic Scorpius gemstones to co-create True Magic. Well today we’re going to Activate that potential with a capital “A” to make you ready for the Sun’s transit of Alpha Scorpius, Antares in a few days.

A solar energy buildup began last week to prepare the ethers for the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse.

LAST GASP: Decaying sunspot AR1618 (not to be confused with growing sunspot AR1620) erupted on Nov. 27th (1557 UT), producing a last-gasp solar flare ranking M1.6 on the Richter Scale of Flares. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash…. (see Spaceweather News for the whole story).

So now that the psychic trash has been taken out on the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse yesterday (Scorpio in medical astrology is the Elimination System), it’s time to shift into your Serpent of Wisdom persona; that Sneaky Sexy Snake body of yours that has been hidden for all of these millennia, so you can help repair, restore, heal and build the New World like crazy.

During the Eclipse the Full Moon was in opposition to the Sun in Scorpius. True sky events involving Constellation Scorpius are rare now that Ophiuchus has come to life on the Zodiac Belt. That means a true Scorpius native is a precious commodity — like a Diamond or an Alexandrite. Very special and hard to find!

And more powerful than ever before!

If you want to experiment with a new crystal to go along with the new mysteries of your sign (Scorpius), try Cuprite.

Healing Properties of Cuprite

Key words: Life force, vitality, physical energy, courage, healing, divine feminine.

Chakras: Base, Sacral

Crystal Descriptions:

Cuprite can activate, strengthen, and heal the base chakra, awakening kundalini and raising energy and vitality.  It encourages connection with and balancing of the energy of the feminine archetype. Cuprite is a stone of women’s mysteries and is a good ally when facing a major threshold or rite of passage. It is an excellent stone to assist with female reproductive issues and provides regulating and balancing qualities.

Geological Description:

Cuprite is a copper oxide mineral with a hardness of 3.5 to 4. Cuprite forms in oxidised parts of copper deposits and often occurs in association with chrysocolla, malachite and azurite. Fine specimens of Cuprite are found in the Congo and Namibia in Africa, and Arizona in the USA.

Affirmation: The furnace of my body blazes with energy and vitality and for this I honour the feminine Divine that is my Source.

Info Source: Feel Therapies & Crystals

Doesn’t this crystal just scream “Scorpio” to you? (Or maybe it sings. ;-) )

Meanwhile … the Moon in Taurus today

Astronomy-Astrology students can review archived Oph Scopes for information about the Archaeo-astronomy (Earth-sky alignments) involving Constellation Orion today including those that make up what I call the 82nd Degree Meridian.

Speaking of Taurus and the energy to build, the stars of Orion’s Belt — need I remind anyone — are aligned with the 3 Great Pyramids at Giza, Egypt.

Part of the building process involves breathing new life into old relationships that may have crumbled due to the pressures of the time in which we are living. Our family values and marriage statistics have reflected the trauma that comes from minorities seeking parity. But times are changing and we saw reflections of that in the choices We the People made in the USA’s 2012 Elections. Our voices were heard. Politicians are trying to adjust to the Message.

More work on our relationships (Mercury & Venus in Libra)

On a higher level, could it be the relationships that have just fallen apart are making way for us to rekindle the relationships we formed in past lives that made it possible for us to learn then what men and women have forgotten now about healing and building with Nature, Love and Light technologies? As more of us have awakened, it is possible more of us are walking around looking for ship mates and help-meets from ages past that we agreed to hook up with at this time.

Juno (Soul Covenants & Relationships) in Serpens (Ophiuchus’s giant Serpent of Epidaurus) is aligned with Alpha Ophiuchus and Quaoar suggesting the time is now to heal and revive those ancient Soul Contracts because there is a brand new Myth in the making. The New Age is giving birth to a wave of new Heroes, Gods and Goddesses. And I’m sure we all want to be a part of that, especially with the job market being so poor right now. ;-)

In the meantime, Neptune in Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula, “The Eye of God”, is posing as a metaphor for the Aquarius Water Carrier pouring Inspiration and Illumination out of the Heavenly Pitcher.

Mercury in Libra aligned with Zubeneschamali is joined by Venus who recently entered Libra. They are encouraging us to bring all the Love and Beauty we can into our relationships. Use every Artistic and Musical tool available to cause the vibrations and frequencies around you to dance, flow and sing to the rhythm of Love.

Whenever two or more people come together, the energy from that interaction — as most of you already know — is increased exponentially. So take the cosmic hints today that pairing and group work is favored and those who come together to begin working and playing together will have the inertia of the Universe acting as the Wind in their sails. Success is just a couple of heartbeats away.

The Moon is engaged with the Earth and Sun in a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse today. Greatest Eclipse is at 14:33:00 UT. The Moon reaches Full Phase at 14:46 while separating from the Eclipse.

Earlier today (November 26) I posted to my Timeline on Facebook and Twitter about Mercury turning Direct. I wanted to know how the Mercury retrograde transit had affected people in view of Asteroid Hermes maintaining Ophiuchus stability by transiting Constellations Scorpius and Ophiuchus in Direct motion.

Some of my Scorpius and Ophiuchus friends on Facebook inform me they’re “packing up”. “Packing up” to one of my Ophiuchus contacts had to do with mental-emotional processes; another is engaged in job interviewing and looking to move as soon as possible. One of my precious Scorpius contacts is actually physically moving just to change the energy around her in preparation for 12/21/2012.

So it would seem the theme in our Penumbral Eclipse-Ophiuchus at Stonehenge article is cutting through the water like the great adventure ship Argo Navis already. Are you on the move too, either actually or figuratively? Have you moved your consciousness into a new mind set? Are you on a brand new quest to change your life? If so, then you’ve picked up on this “pack it up” energy too.

Mars-Pluto-Sagittarius

Mars and Pluto entered into a Conjunction yesterday while aligned Equatorially with Alpha Lyra (Vega) while still in Square aspect to Uranus Rx in Constellation Pisces.

This energy contributes to the idea that manifestations of “darker” energies (not bad, just dark) are moving around or being moved around. There are questions on the table concerning incarceration (Uranus-Pisces) and release from detainment (Sun-Earth in Scorpius, Moon opposing from Taurus).

Be ready to release your fears, negative non-constructive attachments and LET THEM GO as the Sun-Earth-Moon energy combination helps us release and take out our psychic trash.

We have been awakened with joy to the thought that there is a golden age ahead for us. But we have also had our eyes opened to so much new distressing information and so many horrendous revelations that we are awash in a sea of negative e-motion. At every turn we are finding fault and bashing stuff we barely know anything factual about just because it all sounds possible, probable or completely believable.

But is it?

How is this making us feel?

Some of us have dived into the social network vats of Exopolitics, Freedom Fights, and every sort of Conspiracy Theory we can imagine. What truth there may be in anything we are learning is so steeped in fear and clothed in wrappers of hate and distress that even the good news (how to eat healthy) is distressing because it comes packaged and served up with darkness on the side (reminders that toxic chemicals are being added to the water, poison sprays are filling the air, and our fields are being planted with stuff we’re afraid of … and on and on).

Take a deep breath today. Take it in all the way down to your toes, hold it for some seconds, and then blow it all out forcefully. Go run yourself a nice bath or take a shower. Imagine yourself scrubbing your Aura with something exfoliating! Visualize the dirt from your Aura, inside and out, being washed away. Use a psychic crystal laser wand to separate the layer of crystallized dirt deposits from the edges of your Aura. Take a chime or a bell to the dark corners of the rooms of your living space that the rays of the Sun coming in through the windows never touch. Let the monsters out of the closet, both mentally and physically.

The point is it will be helpful for us to get the psychic parasites and hooks unattached from our Auras and shake the dirtwebs loose from our living spaces. Visualize it packed up and ready to release into the streaming of shadow energy that will flow like a dark Nexus from our planet to the Moon so it can be whisked away and transported to someplace where its symbiotic function will be fulfilled harmoniously.

Think how many people have no clue how rare celestial events in Constellation Scorpius are! It’s like threading a cosmic needle. And as the Sun makes its way through Scorpius, a trip that takes less than one Earth week, we can see the Eclipse event is like the Cosmos is helping us Let Go of stuff that is no longer serving us. And we need to take this golden opportunity to Release (one of the keywords for Scorpio) as much baggage as we can to prepare for the all-important alignment on 12/21/2012.

Venus in Libra

Venus enters Libra today suggesting that getting rid of this baggage will open us up for bright, beautiful, harmonious relationship vibrations. We will need this fresh start. Saturn is right behind Venus, soon to enter Libra, Initiating our relationships for special functions in the New Age — or levying Karmic Retribution in those relationships that are still manifesting harm on the planet and keeping Humanity from achieving a healthy balance.

So where do you want to be? Squeaky-clean and ready for anything? Or bogged down?

The choice is ours to make.

If you’re following our storyline as related in the Penumbral Eclipse article on Astronomologer then you’re aware of the significance of this alignment. If not, visit the article to find out.

Today is a good day to align with our Home Stars and prepare for tomorrow’s subtle-but-powerful Penumbral Eclipse. What I mean by “subtle” is that Penumbral Eclipses aren’t a high-profile event, but they’re every bit as significant on their own plane as a Total Eclipse.

Sometimes we forget it’s the little things that make all the difference in the world between success and failure in any undertaking, especially the big ones. Big jobs don’t get done without all the preparatory work that goes into them. So here’s to all the Little People on the Planet. I raise my glass of filtered water to you and me today.

The Discipline of Cleaning Up After Ourselves — it’s the least we can do

When the party is over there is clean-up work to be done afterwards. In the New Age, with so many minds flying in all directions, cleaning up after the party is of equal or greater importance than the party itself. Without it, unfortunately, conditions can go right back to what they were before.

I learned that the hard way at home when I was just learning about the occult worlds, flying by the seat of my pants, unsupervised. I wouldn’t recommend learning that way, but it definitely taught me a lot of things I wouldn’t have learned any other way.

How many Light Work groups think to perform banishing and smudging after their events? You would think that after shaking the rafters to see what will come out of the dark corners to be transmuted that they would actually engage in transmutation. But instead sometimes the rituals we engage in are focused on projecting Love, Light and Peace on others without regard to After-Care of the residual energies that have been jarred loose and been scattered about without showing it the door of light — or the dust pan.

Taking out the psychic trash

Perhaps this is one reason why the energies get so Jonesy and hard to handle afterwards and why our Ascensionitis symptoms never seem to abate. Perhaps we need some Circles of Light Workers to bend their talents to the co-creation of Psychic Negativity Waste Disposal Centers for the healthy and trauma-free transmutation of psychic trash, chaff, stirred-up dust and cosmic lint.

That way maybe not as many people will be caught unawares and beset with wave after wave of negative energy upon awakening in the morning.

Food for thought, eh? Anybody game? I’ve got my broom here, ready to use after the Penumbral Eclipse. Does anybody want to go out after the Eclipse and play Pacman or Pacwoman with me?

We’re taking out the psychic trash on the Penumbral Eclipse. If anybody wants to come along for the ride, here’s that link again in case you missed it the first time.

  • Quaoar in Serpens in Equatorial alignment with Alpha Ophiuchus (Rasalhague)
  • Pluto in Constellation Sagittarius – Square to – Uranus Rx in Constellation Pisces
  • Neptune in Constellation Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula

The good news is Mercury turns Direct today. YAY!

Mercury

There really is no bad news unless the Sun in Constellation Scorpius interacting with stars in Draco, Serpens and Ophiuchus is creating a jet wash that has you spinning.

I had a hard time sleeping last night and woke up this morning in a negative energy field for no apparent reason — until I remembered (duh) the Sun is transiting Constellation Scorpius and “no apparent reason” means there’s a reason but we just can’t see it.

Meanwhile, those who are doing a better job of tracking the energies I’m writing about than I am are reporting their experiences to me and acknowledging that the interacting energy fields are perceptible and tangible. I’m also receiving reports of amplified healing energy and accelerated healing results building up over the past few months. I’m noticing prompter manifestations resulting from thought projection into a private energy field I call “I’d really like this to happen. And that it harm none.”

How about you?

The Lunar emphasis today is on the key phrase I AM the GODDESS WITHIN (because it’s the Moon). This means anybody of any sexual orientation can sense the Goddess Within. And because Her Light is waxing, if you meditate for long enough you should be able to feel the movement of the Light in increase, especially perceptible because of the alignments to the Alpha and Beta stars of Aries. (See prior Oph Scopes for tips on reading the Moon in Aries, connections to Ophiuchus and the Roman Goddess Minerva.)

Aries map | (c) AlltheSky.com | http://www.allthesky.com/constellations/ari85.html

What is Mercury doing in Libra today? Turning around and making another fly-by at Beta Libra, Zubeneschamali (“the price which covers”). In the next few days, whatever the status of your relationship(s) that you’ve been working so hard on, it’s as good as it’s going to get for now. You’ve done all you can do. Move on. The rest is up to the person at the other end of the negotiation.

Remember, all relationships are mirrors. The Aries Moon today is drawing you to look inside of yourself and see your profound inner beauty. It’s pretty darned difficult to injure someone in a relationship who doesn’t want to be injured at some level. Most if not all of us have grown up patterned by legacy childhood issues passed down to us by our parents. Add to that the issues we grew up with. And top it off with the defense mechanisms we taught ourselves or learned from observing the behavior of others, and you have an artwork that sometimes makes no more sense than a kaleidoscope. But it’s beautiful. And it’s us.

Mercury at Zubeneschamali in opposition to the Moon in Aries at 41 Aries (the top of the Ram’s Head) says we are worthy. Stop beating your head against the damn wall! We are enough. We have paid our dues.

Love Your Self today. The Goddess Within deserves all the Love you can give Her!

Constellation Scorpius and the Milky Way Galaxy Center area | Do you see claws here?

Constellation Scorpius has a powerful message for us today. Speaking through the Star of our Solar System (the Sun) Her message is this: We can all unlock and unleash the Love, Life and Beauty Within and Be who we Truly Are Today, as She has done.

I Truly do love Life and everything and everybody that resides within. I have learnt that, by turning my attention from *Out there to In here*. I have found self and realised how hungry and thirsty I was for too many life times. I was given many gifts but none has reached as deep as my own. It is I that was the only one possible to reach for the hand of my-self. I have pulled out my earthly me from the cellar and allowed myself to live in the Castle of my own essence Name. Using the whole and everything what was in there. While searching through the castle, rooms, floors, I have realised it was all done by my own making, my own gifts that i left to and for me through all sorts of experiences from the past lives and this one so far.

Some better, some less, but they all carried my signature. I cried like a baby…for what I was looking at, it was pure Art of Love for my being. It is a Tribute to my Spirit and Soul that entered this Earth Plane, not knowing, not re-remembering who I truly Am, always trying best to have a relation ship with Goddess Earth and God the Sun, but many times I have got lost in my own powerful reflection of Light.

So I was turning down my own Light, little by little and in one moment, I have reached a total Darkness. I thought I would be lost, for I forgot to reach out for my own hand that has been not far away of the Switch. My hand was weak, for my body was hungry and thirsty… and no food from out there helped me re-gain the powers to lift up my hand so high. Until one other moment when I have said YES to myself. If my love is good enough to make some other beings happy, I shall find myself to drink up from my own well, too. It is not wrong to drink it out first, so other can see it is safe and good enough to drink what I have to offer.

So I did. That was the first time that I actually remembered a familiar feeling, the stream of life, moving and dancing through my veins. What have I done…I cried out. for hours…days. I have robbed myself of my own Love, giving it away, thinking how good I am. I also noticed that not everybody would be as happy as I thought would be…they have looked at me by wonder…and not very kind one.

NGC 6302 Butterfly Nebula | Constellation Scorpius

Today, I do understand, they wondered why I am giving away my full glasses of Water and not drinking it myself first…some of them got addicted by, so they were angry when my Well run out of the last drops. They left me there without even a simple thank you or goodbye. So I cried more, my tears do heal my soul and my body…and soon realised my Well is getting filled up again, by my own tears of surrender. Yes, I have surrendered totally, allowing my Higher Self to take over.

So, … I do know the Pain. Like all of us do. But no pain is as powerful as the one, that we, our self do bring unto self. But also, it is only our own pain, that brings the Brightest Light and Love back to us… I feel we are all bringing that Light and Love down to Earth where most needed, by just simply surrendering to our own higher beings-selves! Knowing that all as it is it is perfect in its own imperfection. By surrendering to a simple thought, To have a better Relation Ship with Inner Self, with Her, the Earth Mother and with Him, the Sun Father. So we, as a complete expression of Divine-Earthly Trinity, can grow bigger god-dess self into the whole Existence. Through our own experience, seeing the experience worthy even if the smallest one ever, it is still an experience, by feeling the priceless gratitude for life that we share and space that we occupy Now.

Our past is important, not to be attached to us, but to give us a clues when we lose ourselves by trying out the corridors of Life not ever walked before not ever spoken of before. Keep collecting those puzzles, the clues, they are our own gifts we have left ourselves when we came from the Future to the Past, to heal it and put it within divine order, so we can all have the Life Now.

Love is Life, because life comes out of life. It is for Love that Life comes into existence. Why We are coming into this World?

It is because we all want to experience Relation Ships. They are vital for our growth, for all who are living on this Earth plane. It is the very Meaning of Life.

Every authentic person will know-feel that Love is fundamental. It is not of mind but of the heart. And that is what *FALL IN LOVE* means. That We fall from head to the heart. Love is the highest intelligence and it is a creative one. So when we are in Love, we know how creative we are. Nothing goes smooth and well when we are in hatred.

We are de-struck-tive then. So, Love is Life itself, Love is Intelligence, Love is Creation, Love is You. Love We are. Love I am.

Dea-Light Music
Lund, Sweden

Yesterday (November 24) was Dea-Light’s birthday. (It’s not too late to wish her Happy Birthday if you’re reading this on the 22nd or 23rd. ;-) ) Hence, these words of Love-Wisdom spring from the Heart of a beautiful Divine Solar Feminine Scorpius Serpent of Light-Wisdom, a native of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and I received her permission to share them with you.

I’m confident this will give us all a feel for the profound love and wisdom that emanates from natives of Constellation Scorpius in the New Age.

We are living in chaotic times. It’s difficult — sometimes impossible — to know the truth. There are so many points of view, unless one has degrees or deep knowledge in multiple disciplines, it’s not possible to make an educated decision.

But there are signs that appear to support the points of view that matter. When the Earth begins to shudder, shake, storm and spew it becomes apparent the balance point has shifted.

Most of us have read stories about the lost civilization of Atlantis that is said to have misused its technology and been responsible for a great cataclysmic planetary change that they were told would occur should they not stop what they were doing.

Today’s video presents recent information from the Mayans about 12/21/2012 for your consideration.

Alignments to Andromeda

Today’s alignments of the Moon with the Alpha Star and the Great Andromeda Galaxy facilitate extra-dimensional contact with the Andromedans although it is unlikely that the higher dimensional beings need planetary alignments to contact us.

Nevertheless, there should be light lines and ray energy available today due to metaphysical thought forms built up around these concepts giving people a convergence point at which to expect a natural celestial portal, door, or stargate to exist. We can experiment with this today if we want to ascertain whether scientific concepts yield usable results.

Report dated Nov 21, 2012 by 

Rapid growth from Active Region 11618 produced a moderate Impulsive M1.4-Class Solar Flare at 06:56 UT Today, this followed two filament eruptions which were both in earth facing positions. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is expected to impact the earth in sometime November 23rd and may spark a G1 or G2 class geomagnetic storm will be possible. more news shortly

The planet-star alignments today are pretty fantastic. Alignments to the Alpha and Beta stars of Pegasus, Beta Libra (“the price which covers”), Arcturus (the Arcturians are Masters of Time) and Eagle Nebula (also known as the Star Queen) facilitate visionary dreams of transformation for our beautiful planet. (See prior Oph ‘Scopes for insight into the Pegasus area of the Pisces sector of the Zodiac Belt.)

Mercury retrograde prompts us to review how our Intentions and Manifestations seem to be working out so we can tweak them if we need to. The Sun’s in the last few minutes in Constellation Libra suggests that people who have empowered their relationships are in really good shape for the Solar transit of Constellation Scorpius which will begin tomorrow.

Keep in mind Jupiter is still retrograde in Taurus, so if our manifestation wishes involve anything that depends on the economy, including a new job, you can pretty much hold that thought until January 30, 2013 when Jupiter turns Direct again.

Phoenix Cluster | RA 23h44m42.00s Dec -42°42’52.6″

Today I’m remembering the old Breton prayer inscribed on plaques given to new submarine captains by Admiral Rickover and quoted by President John F. Kennedy in a dedication speech in 1963, ”‘O God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small’”.

That’s how I feel every day as I face the tremendous task of selecting the most remarkable celestial energies to write about for you. So you’ll forgive me, I’m sure, if I sometimes wander away from the mainstream and draw attention to the energies to be found in the back roads, off the Zodiac Belt map.

Today is such a day as I call attention to a couple of planet-star alignments for the benefit of Astronomology (Astronomy-Astrology) students or in case anyone has a natal chart alignment and can confirm the essences of any of these stars have in any way influenced your behavior or popped up in synchronicity or in dreams. The Aquarius Moon is probably prompting me to be bold, adventurous, and unafraid to explore the Universe in search of new Knowledge. So I’m taking you along with me — those of you who feel so called to join me. You will not be disappointed, I promise you.

First, Venus (209°) is in Ecliptic alignment today with Open Cluster IC 2606, The Southern Pleiades, a celestial object I mention in Penumbral Eclipse 11/28/2012: Ophiuchus at Stonehenge.

Next, the Moon (345°) ends the day (UT time — make adjustments for your local time zone) aligned with

  • Alpha Phoenix (Ankaa) and
  • Achernar, Alpha Eridanus (the celestial river)

Phoenix Cluster Sets Record Pace at Forming Stars (08.15.12)

Right, a composite image of the Phoenix Cluster. Right, artist concept of its central galaxyThe hot gas in Phoenix is giving off copious amounts of X-rays and cooling quickly over time, especially near the center of the cluster, causing gas to flow inwards and form huge numbers of stars. These features are shown in this artist’s impression of the central galaxy, with hot gas shown in red, cooler gas shown in blue, the gas flows shown by the ribbon-like features and the newly formed stars in blue. (NASA/CXC/M.Weiss)

Astronomers have found an extraordinary galaxy cluster, one of the largest objects in the universe, that is breaking several important cosmic records. Observations of the Phoenix cluster with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, the National Science Foundation’s South Pole Telescope, and eight other world-class observatories may force astronomers to rethink how these colossal structures and the galaxies that inhabit them evolve.

Stars are forming in the Phoenix cluster at the highest rate ever observed for the middle of a galaxy cluster. The object also is the most powerful producer of X-rays of any known cluster and among the most massive. The data also suggest the rate of hot gas cooling in the central regions of the cluster is the largest ever observed.

For more background about the Phoenix Cluster, including how it was discovered and the meaning of its adopted name, we have interviewed the first author Michael McDonald.

* * *

“As it turns out, this name is meaningful beyond the cluster’s location in the Phoenix constellation. In the centers of galaxy clusters, astronomers think that the formation of new stars ceased roughly 10 billion years ago, as evidenced by the fact that most nearby clusters contain only old stars in their centers. However, the Phoenix cluster appears to be forming stars at an exceptionally high rate, suggesting that it has somehow come back to life, so to speak.”

Read more at: Q&A with Michael McDonald – Chandra blog

When more than one major star shares the same Ecliptic or Equatorial alignment coordinates it co-creates a super-charged string or a power meridian (if there are many power stars lying along the same alignment coordinate).

Phoenix Cluster (Declination -42°42’52.6″) is parallel with Alpha Phoenix (-42°14’04.9″). Phoenix Cluster’s Ecliptic Longitude is currently 336.7621°. Do you have anything in alignment with it?

Think about the essences of the stars and how they fit into your day today.

Why was the Southern Pleiades named as it was?

Who among my readers is going through a major transformation, bursting into spiritual flame from the ashes of a life you’re leaving behind today?

Who is setting sail on the celestial River Nile or the Ganges or the Amazon or the [fill in the blank -- where is your closest cosmic river said to be the Source of All Life on this planet?] on a great Cosmic Adventure that will have many more important spiritual growth stops along the way?

Because these alignments are happening today in real time to everyone, we all have access to this energy and it is possible for each one of us to manifest these energies. Open yourself to receiving these energies today if it is your Free Will Choice to do so.

Happy Adventuring!

The defining difference between the energy yesterday and today is the Lunar transit of Aquarius’s Beta and Alpha stars. The First Quarter Moon phase signals a turning point in the upward spiral of the lunar month. It also focuses us subconsciously on the issues normally monitored by the Capricornus and Aquarius star fields.

If these cosmic influences play themselves out as expected, there will be a subtle shift in consciousness shared by those whose careers give them leadership responsibilities and the people to whom they are responsible.

There may be a time lag between this shift in consciousness and signs of it being visible on the physical plane. But just give it a chance. For now, change is simply brewing.

On a personal level, you can apply this same concept to your social relationships in a group setting.

November 19 ~ Constellation Libra Sun, Capricornus-Aquarius Moon

  • Solar Cycle Theme: The Power of Harmonious Relationships
  • Lunar Phase Theme: Government Of the People
  • Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent
    • Moon aligns with Saturn Nebula
  • Saturn in Constellation Virgo applying to Equatorial alignment with Alpha Boötes (Arcturus)
  • Libra Sun aligns with Alpha Serpens Caput (Unukalhai)
  • Mercury Rx in Libra aligns with Gamma and Beta Libra (Zubenelakrab and Zubeneschamali)
  • Quaoar in Serpens in double-alignment (Ecliptic and Equatorial) with Alpha Ophiuchus (Rasalhague)

  • Neptune in Constellation Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula

Saturn Nebula | Constellation Aquarius

Today the Sun aligns with Unukalhai, the Alpha star of Constellation Serpens Caput, the head end of Ophiuchus’s great serpent, while the Moon transits Constellations Capricornus (Careers, Business & Government, the World Stage) and Aquarius (Altruistic Humanity).

The implications of this should be obvious but in case they aren’t, it means major Serpent of Wisdom energy is being activated on the Awake & Aware level (that’s you and me) while the subconscious minds of sleepy peoples in positions of leadership, fiduciary and financial responsibility to Humanity are in a receptive cycle.

Here’s the question: is there any connection between the two (Solar Serpent Energy and Receptive Moon) so that Awake & Aware energy can hit paydirt in Congress and World Leadership?

Yes. Mercury Rx is parallel to the Sun and square to the Moon. That will certainly get the job done.

Mercury Rx is also aligned with two significant stars of Libra and they have a message for us. They say achieving balance is a matter of addressing “the price of the conflict” and “the price that covers” suggesting somebody has a solution to our problems.

That “somebody” may be the people in Congress who have the terrible task of keeping the USA from going over “the Fiscal Cliff.” But maybe that “somebody” today is us.

Solar Serpent Energy is peaking today. In your meditations and energy work, direct positive, loving energy toward the folks in business and government and pray for Wisdom to prevail over self-interest and personal prejudices. Everybody needs encouragement to do better, not criticism and abuse.

Tell your representatives psychically that they’re doing a great job of being who they are. You can do this knowing that it takes crystallization and catalyst to bring bad situations to light so enough people can see them to take action that brings meaningful change. Appreciate the people who signed up to play “the bad guy” in our Cosmic Earth Play. Theirs may turn out to have been the toughest labor of love ever performed as they have had to hurt the people they loved most — and the Earth — to get this job done in the long run.

You can see this pageant playing out in your personal relationships too. How many friends and family members have had to dis you and make you go away, leaving you with nothing to do but time on your hands and a hole in your Heart that you could only fill with Light and Service to Humanity Work?

M8 – Lagoon Nebula | Constellation Sagittarius

Good news for A-type personalities! The Sun-Mercury combust-conjunction will come to an end today.

How did you do? Were you able to maintain your balance and sense of reason in the face of marital, social or legal relationship issues that cropped up? If so, congratulations — you have empowered yourself in harmony with the Evolution and Ascension plan for Earth and the species of life that call Her Home.

The magnetic Moon today first draws the attention of the Eye of the Celestial Eagle (Altair) and then trains it on Business and Government as she transits the Alpha and Beta stars of Constellation Capricornus. The wheels turn oh-so-slowly but after the break-through results of the November 6th Elections in the USA, all signs point to Change We Can Believe In even if we don’t like the person who is leading our Nation through this difficult time.

We’ve gotta keep the faith!

Saturn still in Constellation Virgo reminds us our current agenda is the empowerment of women and Goddess’s Green Earth. Venus recently aligned with Alpha Virgo and Alpha Boötes opened up a powerful channel facilitating women’s Self Empowerment. Women may be getting more support than ever from men, but think about it — women are earning respect and taking their power back. Only a few have given it back just because it was the right thing to do. Even among our own gender the fight has been hard and long.

Carve out that business plan today, ladies. With the Sun and Mercury retrograde in Libra, the balance point has changed and continues to change in favor of equity and an equal voice in business and government. Though it will take a long time for the balance of gender power to be reflected in government, the business world is wide open now. All you have to do is go for it.

Meanwhile, Mars in Sagittarius is in a Power Position too. He is tanking up on the Creative Power of the Zodiac Dragon and the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

In the old world the Sagittarius archer symbolized, among other things, hunting. The first thing that comes to mind is bringing down a deer or other gentle creature of the forest. In the world of tomorrow hunting takes on new meaning. In the new age Magic waits in the wings to be directed by the wise, creative Dragon Master to restore this planet’s symbiotic balance with her many kingdoms of life. This is a vital occupation for everyone, and especially for the positively active and energized male whose particular gift is to aim his Magic Wand — a replacement for the hunter’s bow and arrows — and cause his goals and dreams to manifest around the women and children for their safety, protection, and harmonious enjoyment.

This is the vision of how the new Mars vibration in Sagittarius will be transmuted from killer to Creator.

Sagittarius

The Moon has left Mars behind today but Dragon-Serpent energy is still on the rise as Mars maintains alignments to the stars and celestial objects of Constellation Draco while the Moon conjuncts Pluto.

As you may know Pluto, the recently demoted Lord of the Underworld, lost its full planet status in 2006. Nevertheless it is a valued and most beloved member of our Solar System, still functioning as the transpersonal level ruler of Constellation Scorpius. Crime and other Underworld aberrations, however, have but a short time left to live themselves out on this planet. You might say some aspects of Pluto and Scorpio are still on the shelves but they are living out a kind of cosmic shelf-life for human and planetary health and safety reasons.

Pluto-Apollo (in Serpens)-Moon Conjunction

Let’s talk about the heavy, depressing, fear-based feelings we sometimes go to bed to escape but keep waking up with anyway.

Yes, sometimes the energy feels a little frightening. But look at what we have to go through to recalibrate energies and set the new tone for a coming age of Light and Love. To activate World Compassion we who can are tasked with being the examples of how to embrace, forgive and come to love the Shadow Side. There is no other way to accomplish the Miracles that make up our Goals and Aspirations for the Future.

Today’s Moon-Asteroid Apollo-Pluto conjunction reminds me of something I just read in a book that (unless I’m having a senior moment) I believe was sent to me some years ago by a dear Soul Star Sister Nikki Baird. It’s funny that I chose to open it for the first time just two days ago because here we are at a juncture where the information I just read yesterday comes in real handy.

What I want to address today is the frightening energy of healing, healers, snakes, snake dreams and their themes.

Personally I hate to hear about dreams where people are killing the snake(s). But that’s just me. Obviously there is more than one way to look at every snake dream. And the act of killing the snake, Donna (they’re informing me), is not necessarily a bad thing.

Apollo Lyre & Snake

Apollo, Lyre & Snake in Tree

It’s easy to assume that the Delphic myth of Apollo fighting the snake is a straightforward case of a battle between the opposites–of Apollo as a celestial god overcoming the powers of earth and darkness. But something needs to be understood.

Alongside the intimacy of Apollo’s links with the underworld, there’s another aspect of him that also has been pushed into the dark. That’s his connection with snakes. In ritual and in art snakes were sacred to him. Even in the case of the myth about the snake he fought and killed at Delphi, he didn’t destroy it just to get it out of the way. On the contrary, its body was buried at the center of his shrine. He killed it so he could absorb, appropriate, the prophetic powers that the snake represents.

It was the same in other places. At Rome he was known for approaching people who came to visit his great incubation shrine by appearing to them in the middle of the night as a snake. This could seem unusual until you notice how normal it was for Greeks to describe him as assuming the form of a snake.

And it was only natural for the same pattern to keep repeating itself with Apollo’s son Asclepius when–in the centuries after Parmenides–he gradually took over the healing powers that used to belong to his father. Asclepius would come, followed by hissing snakes, to people who approached him; or he’d come in the form of a snake. The hissing, syrigmos, was the sound of his presence.

There have been scholars so determined to present Asclepius as nothing but a mild and gentle god that when they come to translate the words describing this side of him they simply miss them out. But the old texts are quite clear. If people weren’t already used to the sound of his presence then it would terrify them–like the sound of wild nature at its wildest when you’re all on your own–as they lay sleeping or in the state that’s neither waking nor sleep.

In the Dark Places of Wisdom pp. 133-34 (Peter Kingsley 1999 The Golden Sufi Center, Inverness, California USA)

I have written elsewhere that Ophiuchus energy can be unnerving to say the least. Here at last is timely and welcome confirmation and authority for why that is. Clearly we can see night terrors can also be healing energies emanating from the archetypal levels and being inserted in our minds during sleep. I can also tell you the higher dimensional or dis-embodied presence of Ophiuchus consciousness can also be sensed as negative and unreasonably fear-inducing even in the waking state. So people working with Ophiuchus consciousness and healing need to be aware of this.

Also, refer to numerous writings on both of my web sites unveiling the Serpent as Goddess, the true Elemental form and consciousness underlying the Zodiac Constellation of Ophiuchus, being as it is, cut out of the belly of Zodiac Water (Feminine) Sign Scorpio.

Keep in mind also that in the higher, undifferentiated state, the energy of Constellation Ophiuchus is the 5th Element Ether and in that form Ophiuchus is neither gender, both genders, and non-gendered as well as Ether is the source of all the other elements — just like God/Goddess in a single unified state.

There has never been a day like today in Galactic Earth history, and this day will never be repeated no matter what the body language of Mercury Retrograde says. This day just isn’t coming around again in quite the same way even if the planets and stars should align exactly like this at some date in the future.

The reason for that has everything to do with the unfoldment of Ophiuchus Consciousness and Ophiuchus Awareness.

To set this all up, Mercury Rx is applying to a Combust (conjunction) with the Sun in Constellation Libra while the Sun is aligned with Gamma Libra (Zubenelakrab – “the price of the conflict”). The rules of traditional Astrology state that when the Sun and Mercury are combust, our common sense and reasoning powers tend to be temporarily incinerated.

The Combust aspect is bad enough, but keep in mind that not only are the Sun and Mercury combust but Mercury is also Retrograde. So how is this all going to work out? Yikes! “The price of the conflict” sounds like an ultimatum to me. Or is it somebody reading us our planetary karma invoice?

Next, the Moon leaves Constellation Ophiuchus, crossing the old scorpion’s stinger tails stars (new forked tongue of Scorpius as Southern Serpent of Light Wisdom crowned by Corona Australis), the stars of Ara the Altar, and conjuncts Mars in Sagittarius.

The combination of Moon and Mars occultly expresses “dragon-serpent” energy. If the vibrations of Mars are elevating themselves out of the Scorpio threat of death mode and into Serpent of Wisdom consciousness, then the message of Gamma Libra combined with the Moon’s transit of Lesath and Shaula is one of powerful healing and wisdom instead of a virtual declaration of war or the unexpected sting of death.

Yes, these are real cosmic planetary concerns!

The Moon and Mars come into alignment while both bodies are aligned with Gamma Draconis (Eltamin) and Cat’s Eye Nebula (the celestial object that virtually marks the North Celestial or Zodiac Pole). Which body crosses the Galactic Plane first depends on what Ephemeris data is running your planetarium program. My Sky Chart III software (an older program) shows the Moon and Mars crossing the Galactic Plane together.

Now what we are looking at is Galactic-Zodiac Dragon-Serpent energy building in 2012 the Year of the Chinese Water Dragon. This is an extraordinary turn of cosmic events in obvious preparation for 12/21/2012 and we should be watchful today on account of it. If there is some sort of Galactic-Earth portal that is scheduled to be opened as suggested by scholars interviewed in programs aired on The History Channel, then today is the day.

For Scorpio-Ophiuchus, this is a further activation of the New Planetary Caduceus. The energy download will reflect all frequency changes to Mars that are in effect to this point. We will not get another such download until Mars crosses the Galactic Equator on October 25, 2014 — and even then the Moon will be too far behind Mars to achieve this particular alignment again. So Planetary Healers, do whatever you need to do to capture and administer this energy. And don’t forget to take some time to use the Planetary Healer Y Posture.

A truly gigantic explosion happened on the sun yesterday. On Nov. 16th, magnetic fields snaking halfway across the sun’s southern hemisphere erupted in tandem, producing a prominence so big, it doesn’t fit inside this image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO): The blast hurled a CME into space, but the cloud does not appear to be heading for Earth.

November 15 ~ Constellation Libra Sun, Ophiuchus Moon

  • Solar Cycle Theme: The Power of Harmonious Relationships
  • Lunar Phase Theme: Transformation & Regeneration
  • Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent
    • Moon aligns with the major stars of Constellation Scorpius and Ophiuchus up to Beta Ophiuchus

  • Pluto in Constellation Sagittarius – Square to – Uranus Rx in Constellation Pisces
  • Neptune in Constellation Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula
  • Chiron turns Direct in Constellation Aquarius

ChironToday as Chiron turns Direct the Ophiuchus Moon makes alignments to all the major stars of Scorpius and Ophiuchus in a single GMT calendar day. That’s kind of an interesting cosmic coincidence considering the fact that Chiron the wise centaur was foster father and mentor to Asclepius who later became the Greek God of Healing & Wisdom.

Because Oph ‘Scopes are less about fortune telling and more about introducing new concepts and demonstrating how the new frequencies and plethora of star alignments work out in a practical Astrology sense, we’ll simply suggest here that tips on reading alignments to the stars of Scorpius and Ophiuchus can be found in prior Ophiuchus Horoscopes and move on.

Today’s Ophiuchus Moon reflects the Sun and starlight of Constellation Libra. That means Relationship Healing is on this month’s Ophiuchus agenda. So despite whatever may be going on in our relationships, remember, we’re not going to know what issues we still have to heal until the doctor pokes and probes to see what still hurts.

Chiron turns direct today

Chiron’s change of direction is a pivotal moment according to the Celestial Sphere. He is in alignment with Alpha Piscis Austrinus (Fomalhaut) the Royal Fish star of the Ancients (334.0407° Ecliptic Longitude) which is opposite the sky from the Royal Lion star, Regulus (150.0090° Ecliptic Longitude).

Chiron in Aquarius is signalling to Humanity that cutting edge support and mentoring is available and it would be wise for everyone to seek the most knowledgeable teacher possible. The Moon in today’s transit of Ophiuchus makes no aspect to Chiron, so the implication here is that in Chiron’s view, in the Universe of Knowledge, Ophiuchus is just another course on the New Age menu. Perhaps this is a subtle reminder that the best of the Greek and Roman Gods were the humble ones.

Yesterday’s New Moon in Libra set the tone for the coming Lunar Month on relationship issues. The Total Solar Eclipse put a giant exclamation point after that cosmic statement and expanded the time zone for its effectiveness to a Saros Cycle.

The saros is a period of 223 synodic months (approximately 6585.3213 days, or nearly 18 years 11 days), that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon. One saros after an eclipse, the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur, in what is referred to as an eclipse cycle. A sar is one half of a saros.

A series of eclipses that are separated by one saros is called a saros series.

Yes, folks, that’s how long the cosmic focus on our relationships is going to last.

Ouch.

Today Mercury re-joins the party in Libra — retrograde this time — giving us all a chance to rethink or redo something about a recent relationship situation.

Saturn continues in its lengthy transit of Constellation Virgo, reminding us that Health and Wisdom are the foundations of a good life under any set of circumstances. Venus begins to align with Alpha Virgo to deliver a big shot of Love to Gaia and to all of the species living on Gaia’s Green Earth. For best results, engage in Nature Appreciation activities so you can absorb these cosmic frequencies directly instead of indirectly by reading about it (although that’s okay too).

While Mercury is retrograde transiting Constellation Libra until the 26th, relax and remember that everything is temporary including our physical incarnations. And then give it your best shot when presented with a re-do opportunity. It’s coming.

If you don’t know what to do when you see your re-do opportunity heading straight for you, recite the Serenity Prayer. I guarantee it to be 100% magical, safe and effective (Mars in Sagittarius aligning with Mu Ophiuchus and Gamma Draco) or your (Jupiter Rx in Taurus) money back.

  • Neptune in Constellation Aquarius aligned with Helix Nebula

Today’s New Moon at 22:08 UT is part of a Total Solar Eclipse (Greatest Eclipse at 22:11:48.2 UT), in Constellation Libra, the sign of Balance, Marriage and Partnerships.

A marriage of Solar and Lunar energies completes itself today at the balance point of Constellation Libra in alignment with Beta Libra, Zubeneschamali, “the price that covers”. The message this gives us is It’s all good.

What sort of balance point have the Sun and Moon found today?

Astrologically, Feminine energy trumps the Masculine for technical reasons. Libra may be an Air sign (Air is masculine) but the Sun, exalted in Aries, is in the sign of its “Fall” in Libra, tipping the gender balance today even farther toward the Feminine than the idea of the Moon covering the Sun. So for those who use the old rules of Astrology to tell people what sort of constitution they are likely to have based on these rules, that’s the scoop.

I have always wondered if, it being the sign of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, these planetary dignity rules shouldn’t be rethunk ;-)

Whatever your partnership and relationships picture looks and feels like to you at the moment, it’s all good. Relationship Karma is being zeroed out. Mercury Rx in Scorpius is energetically helping us take the sting out of recent relationship encounters that didn’t end well. This clearing of relationship karma status (also supported by Asteroid Juno in Constellation Ophiuchus) will be setting the tone that will sustain and carry us through until the next Total Solar Eclipse re-sets our collective body clock.

So if you’re not at peace with your relationship picture today, take the time to figure out how to be okay with it — some island of in the stream — some moment or moments in your problem relationships that you can be grateful for — and wait for a higher balance point to kick in so you can breathe and not feel lick a total schmuck.

We all deserve a second chance.

The intensity of the planet-star alignments of the last several days has relaxed. We have about a nano-second before the Total Solar Eclipse tomorrow, so enjoy the cosmic coffee break if you can. Or, as we say in the USA, smoke ‘em if ya got ‘em!

Alpha Boötes (Arcturus)

Without so many distractions theoretically it would be easier to communicate with the Great Star Nation, embark on a journey in the dream time or out on the Astral Planes. We wouldn’t need the vibrations and frequencies to be calmer if we were in better shape psychically, but the fact is that for many of us — especially the city-dwellers — we need all the help the Cosmos can provide.

The Moon-Spica-Arcturus alignment peaks between 22:00 and 23:00 UTC. Review prior Oph ‘Scopes for sample comments on the power and possibilities for this area of the sky.

Arcturus or Alpha Boötes is the 4th brightest star in the entire sky. It is visible from both hemispheres in the sky, as it is located less than 20 degrees north of the celestial equator.

Arcturus is a type K2 III pe orange giant star-the letters “pe” stand for “peculiar emission,” which indicates that the spectrum of light given off by the star is unusual and full of emission lines. This is not too uncommon in red giants, but Arcturus has a particularly strong case of the phenomenon.

Arcturus is notable for its high proper motion, larger than any first magnitude star in the stellar neighborhood other than Alpha Centauri. Arcturus is thought to be an old disk star, and appears to be moving with a group of 52 other such stars, known as the Arcturus stream.

Resetting the Tone of our Relationships & Balance

And now we prepare for tomorrow’s Total Solar Eclipse in Constellation Libra at the North Lunar Node, aligned with Alpha Serpens Caput (Unukalhai) and Beta Libra (Zubeneschamali).

We might benefit from spending some time today reflecting on the status of our relationships and whether or not our lives are in relative balance. Are we enjoying some harmonious and peaceful times despite what our self-deprecating negative self-talk begins to plague us from the moment we open our eyes in the morning?

Don’t believe it! Into every life a little rain must fall. But the rainfall is only temporary, just like the hours of daylight. You’re doing a fantastic job! Smile. :-)

Remembering the story of the tortoise and the hare and knowing how diplomatic women tend to be on the whole, we can feel Saturn’s reassuring message that as we work on healing women and humanity the physical Earth will also be responding to our Health & Wisdom works.

Checking the planetary aspects to see what the prospects are in our personal lives, the last couple of days should have been positive and stabilizing for our relationships IF the relationships we are in are healthy. Mercury retrograde in Scorpius aligned with the hand of Ophiuchus that holds the head-end of the Serpent suggests that if you’re experiencing movement in your relationships, our emotional bodies should be delivering the right messages to us. And despite any discomfort or sting as defective or fatally decayed relationship ties dissolve (it hurts — that’s why there is a grieving process when relationships terminate; it’s like processing a death in the family) you know it inside when the wisdom of what is happening around you resonates. Letting go on the physical plane doesn’t mean you have to let go on the spiritual. You can still love people and send them forgiveness and gratitude for the role they have played in helping to form the new you.

It is a paradox that the energy could feel so dark and heavy while positive change and transformation are taking hold. But just think how muddy the water gets when the ship that has stayed so long at one port weighs anchor to move on.

We’re raising a BIG anchor, and we’re moving not only forward but upward as well.

M87 – Virgo A Galaxy

Asteroid Hermes aligns with Alpha Scorpius and Omega Ophiuchus in the piping-hot area of Scorpio-Ophiuchus we refer to as the Alpha Sco-Omega Oph Rho Ophiuchus zone. It interacts with the New Planetary Caduceus.

Antares as you may know is reputed to be the most powerful occult star in the Heavens.

Meanwhile at the far end of Constellation Ophiuchus Mars is in Equatorial alignment with Alpha Ophiuchus and also in Ecliptic alignment with a sequence of powerful theme-stars including Cebalrai (Beta Ophiuchus), Lesath and Shaula Scorpius, and the four main stars of Ara the Altar.

Notice how the positive and negative values of these collections of stars at either end of the Scorpio-Ophiuchus field are holding us in a balance that is only disturbed by the energy field of whatever planet is breaking the light line as it passes by.

Today the planetary bodies breaking the light lines are Asteroid Hermes and non-sacred planet Mars, both of whom are (let us call them) Ophiuchus Insiders and Allies. That means — theoretically — and assuming the Scorpion-Eagle Alchemy is positively in process — the net effect of this pair of planetary aspects bodes well for Humanity collectively and for those of us who are working with Scorpius and Ophiuchus individually with a positive attitude.

Taking a brief look back at the analyses, conversations and obvious messages given to the world in the last few days on the heels of the USA’s 2012 Presidential Elections, I would say things are looking good. The People have spoken through the voting process. The People’s candidates were elected and sensitive issues with measures on the ballot met with hearty success.

The Sun at Beta Libra today gives us the message “the price covers.” A cosmic balance point is being signaled.

Some major media broadcasters are calling Obama “a transforming President” and the 2012 Presidential Elections “an transformative Election.”

As some of you will recognize, “Transformation” is one of the several key words describing Scorpio-Ophiuchus.

Jupiter Rx in Taurus wants to be heard from today. He’s winking at how allowing Congress to remove the cap on corporate contributions to election campaigns has tricked mega-billionaires into feeding the economy and getting nothing for their efforts. Contributions to the Republican campaign by mega-billionaires was in the hundreds of millions of dollars (in excess of $390 Million was a figure I pulled from one of the news reports) yet earned a pitiful return as Democrats were elected and returned to their seats in the White House and in Congress.

Business owners and employees in the advertising, printing, copying, and circulation fields put some nice money in their pockets as did the media companies who took money to advertise the millionaires’ messages to a public that either wasn’t listening or wasn’t interested — probably both.

Are you experiencing similar results in your personal life? Is the money being spent by those who think they’re in control with the expected result of holding you back actually having the reverse effect?

We’re entering a time when we will be watching an occult phenomenon play itself out. There is a saying in occult lore that the scorpion, ringed in fire, commits suicide. And we seem to be seeing a number of politicians and other stubbornly blind members of the 1% party in places of authority shooting themselves in the foot by making it clear in their post-election interviews that they will not change their stance but only make their positions more clear to more of us next time around.

The problem is, white males in the USA are no longer the voting majority.

Uh oh!

Mercury retrograde at the nubs of the Scorpion has these words of wisdom to contribute today: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. 

We wish the party of the white male mega-billionaires a lot of luck with that. America is no longer for sale.

Update

I don’t know much about seismic activity in the UK but it sounds unusual to me. Hence today’s 3.1 magnitude quake in the English Channel seems relevant to add to the record of this month’s natural phenomenoa.

The energy today is so similar to yesterday’s we will take this opportunity to issue a few remarks on the results of the 2012 Presidential Election which culminated last night (as I write this) in victory for President Barack Obama.

Probably the most obvious indicator to consult in retrospect is Mercury who turned retrograde on Election Day to Return the President to his post.

The Sun was aligned with Alpha Libra (Zubenelgenubi), “the insufficient price” star. The weight of the challenger was insufficient to unseat the existing President. This, combined with last night’s Cancer Moon which was both aligned with Alpha Ursa Major and conjunct with the President’s natal Sun in Constellation Cancer made Election Day personal to President Obama and a virtual slam-dunk.

The Cancer Moon also put more women in Congress and rejected a number of state measures seeking to tell women what they can and cannot do with their bodies. Women reacted strongly to Republicans attempting to legislate women’s health issues and they are saying NO to this patriarchal Jupiter Rx in Taurus bull pucky overwhelmingly.

Of supreme importance was the alignment of Mars with Alpha Ophiuchus which peaked yesterday.

These signs insist that Obama is a key player in the plan for this planet and that through Obama Constellation Ophiuchus is activated and enabled to bring healing and wise leadership to the USA and by extension to the globe.

Constellation Leo

Also of note, in yesterday’s vote, three states passed Gay Marriage measures and a number of states voted for both medical and legalized Marijuana. A number of Women gained seats in the 113th (note the number) Congress and even though we are far from gender parity, the number of women in Congress is at a new record high — 19 (with the final results of one race still being counted; the number could elevate to 20).

The State of Wisconsin also elected the first openly gay woman Governor. She is a Democrat.

Latinos and African-Americans went to the polls in record number with Latinos representing the fastest growing segment of the population. Latinos voted for Obama as did women and mothers.

The American people restored the Democratic Party to power. The Democratic Party is the party of the people — the 99%. The Republican Party is the party of the Elites.

States are also saying NO to mandatory Obamacare. Two states are giving their residents a choice.

See these statistics as ideas sending a message. As we view the Election Process, we can see it as a barometer that measures how the climate in the USA is changing. Though progress is slow, it is there and we should have the courage and faith to drop our fear and our judgment and just see what the numbers are saying to us.

It’s a mistake to bash the USA, world politics, and the presidential candidates without a full understanding of what the indicators are telling us about our growth and evolution as a Human species. We are looking into a mirror to see how the other parts of our body are functioning. Those of us who are powerful psychically have enormous potential to project into the new Hologram System to enervate the evolving Body of Humanity and guide it with Love and Compassion.

This is our challenge.

For the record, I did not vote. I chose to stay home, observe and witness the result without bias or judgment or vested interest even though as a resident I have definite opinions on a number of issues. I chose to detach and observe which way the river is flowing at this time and place. This detachment has allowed me to be objective in my observations on the results and to be at Peace with the Voice of the People.

I see the statistics. They speak to me of progress and hope. I invite you to detach and take an interested look at the signs for yourself.

FARSIDE EXPLOSION: As solar activity picks up on the Earthside of the sun (see “Broken Quiet” below), the farside of the sun is coming alive, too. During the early hours of Nov. 9th, a magnetic filament located behind the sun’s southeastern limb erupted, hurling a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) into space:

This explosion was not geoeffective, but future explosions might be. The blast site, still potent, is just days away from rotating onto the Earthside of the sun.

4 Star General, CIA Dir. David Petraeus | held office 9/06/2011-11/09/2012

3:34PM EST November 9. 2012 –

WASHINGTON—CIA Director David Petraeus has resigned from his post citing an extramarital affair,.

In a letter to CIA personnel, Petraeus said he met with President Obama on Thursday and asked to resign because of personal reasons. Today, Obama accepted his resignation, Petraeus said.

“Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA,” Petraeus wrote. “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.”

Alpha Leo – Regulus

Today’s Oph ‘Scope is about managing negative energy on a daily basis.

Are you waking up with unaccountable fear feelings as the daily menu of personal problems drops into your brain immediately upon awakening?

We could blame the recent days of waking up in fear and dread as a product of celestial alignments as easily as we could attribute the intense negativity to manmade severe weather and the uncertainty of our future as the newly elected (or RE-elected — I don’t know yet — as I write this today is Election Day) President of the USA looks ahead to a new 4-year term in office.

The negative energy and our fear feelings go hand-in-hand with the pervasive vibrations and frequencies of change that sit patiently on “hold” while we gain relief in slumber or distract ourselves with work. When the distraction is at an end or we wake up from depression-induced sleep or our regular overnight slumber, there it is, pouncing like a hungry cat making short work of whatever “oh! what a beautiful day!” thought impulse we managed to generate before the worries polluted and overpowered it.

If we don’t want to wake up or spend the day in an unhappy state we must learn how to turn the page and focus on the solution instead of shouldering the emotional burdens of world class problems over which we have no control on the Physical Plane and in the Third Dimension. We need to figure out how we can put our passionate issues down when we’re finished working with them and demagnetize our minds and emotions so they don’t behave like the black clothing you keep in the closet instead of putting it on because you own a white cat.

Mars in Constellation Ophiuchus has a Health tip for us to review today triggered by its Trine aspect to the Leo Moon late yesterday and the Moon’s alignment today with Alpha Leo – Regulus, the Heart of the Zodiac Lion from Constellation Sextans (a navigation tool).

Let your Heart guide the way — Love is the cure. And by that we don’t mean to take refuge or solace in the arms of the object of your affections. Lust is not Love. No. Go into your Heart Center and connect with the Divine Intelligence that resides there in your Human Heart. Love is the Universal Solvent that cuts through problems like water and incinerates trash like fire. But first you need to know or learn how to tap that Power.

For expert guidance in learning how simple it is to use our Heart Intelligence to dispose of fear feelings and get us back on track, check out the latest research from the Institute of HeartMath about the miraculous Human Heart as briefly described in the promotional video below. Some of you may recognize this video as we have shared it previously in Oph ‘Scopes. Mercury retrograde in Scorpius however suggests since the information is a matter of life and death it bears repeating.

The Human Heart is the solution. If you want Love and Peace but you struggle with Fear and Torment, it is now up to you to do the required footwork of exploring this path to see if there is anything on it that will help you.

Mars in Ophiuchus – status check

Mars and Asteroid Apollo are both in that area of Constellation Ophiuchus that contains the highly interactive stars Beta Ophiuchus (Cebalrai), Upsilon and Lambda Scorpius (Lesath and Shaula — the old stinger tail stars of the scorpion), the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta stars of Ara the Altar, and the minor stars of the tail end of Ophiuchus’s great Serpent of Epidaurus (which by the way may be small but they are powerful so be careful working with the tail end of this snake!).

Remember, the activated presence of Ophiuchus on the Zodiac Belt has had the effect on Mars of drawing forth the natural serpentine qualities that are a function of his domain as Planetary Ruler of Scorpio, and as such he is now a natural ally of Ophiuchus.

Metaphysical research shows the Mars-Ophiuchus alliance is occultly beyond dispute. Hence, common sense tells us Mars now does double-duty as it continues to “rule” Scorpius, a Zodiac Sign and celestial energy field that will continue to hold a predictable volatility level that one would naturally associate with the ability to dispense venom, whether fatal or curative depending on circumstances and other factors (you could also call this the Power or Secrets of Life and Death).

Meanwhile, the Northern Snake (Serpens), crowned by Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown, poses as the Serpent of Wisdom.

Abrahadabra! The Twin Serpents are being readied to represent the New Planetary Caduceus on our mundane Zodiac Belt with their first works scheduled to respond at the Waking Consciousness level as the Sun enters Constellation Scorpius this month.

Asteroid Apollo’s 2012 transit of Constellation Ophiuchus

I don’t know why I was surprised to find Asteroid Apollo in exact alignment with Mars and Alpha Ophiuchus the other day, but I was. We say there are no accidents in the Universe, but it’s occasions like these that bring it all home with authority.

Until Asclepius grew up and took over the business exclusively, healing was one of many attributes in the domain of his father Apollo, God of Light (the Sun), Culture, the Arts, Healing & Archery. The presence of Asteroid Apollo in Constellation Ophiuchus right now reminds those of us who have been studying of the “Apollo principle” in healing which states “That which hurts also heals”. This principle explains how Apollo could loose a rain of poison-tipped arrows out into the world to start a plague and still be a god of healing since in retrospect, though plague and pestilence are horrific, they can be seen as devices that are one step in a process that clears densely populated areas of man-made toxic waste and hazards that nobody cares to take steps to clean up. Hence the Gods would send Apollo to do it his way.

Today as Apollo transits Lesath and Shaula we either need to hear the message that is being spoken by the new Southern Serpent of Light Wisdom as it communicates with us using its new forked tongue — or we need to face the fact that some of the population control devices being implemented (old stinger tail stars of the scorpion) may be cruel in our eyes but they are necessary in the eyes of the Gods.

Mercury retrograde in Scorpius between the “nubs” and aligned with the serpent-holding hand of Ophiuchus says: The alternative is to stop complaining if we are capable of taking action to reverse a situation we don’t like. If we can’t put our actions where our words are, we will suffer the consequences of having given our power away to people who will use it their way because we let them.

The planetary aspects today in Virgo-Libra-Scorpius-Ophiuchus are magical if not just a tad frightening (because they are so exhilarating). The first half of the day is ideal for self-reflection and impersonal observation.

Constellation Libra

If you can manage to look calmly into the eyes of the people you’re facing today, there is no telling what signs you may see in that mirror and what your intuition may tell both of you that you can both use to co-create a magical moment filled with unlimited potential. After all, we are vessels and channels for the Light — every one of us. And that includes those who are unawake and unaware.

And as the Moon enters Leo the Love Sign, who knows? This may be the moment you are instrumental in gently awakening someone to the Power of Love!

The Last Quarter Moon occurs at 00:36 UTC in Constellation Cancer bringing the focus to how our feelings about recent events have changed our inner landscape — or should I say our inner seascape?

If we’ve taken any of the several Initiations that have been offered to us recently, it would be normal to be fielding the psychic shift energy emotionally and feel a little or a lot off-balance.

Initiation or no Initiation, with the Sun in Libra emotional upheaval in our relationships is precisely the point being stressed by the Universe yesterday and today. And as the Sun pulls away from its alignment with Alpha Libra, the star in Libra whose message is “the insufficient price”, we are being tasked with taking personal responsibility for our part in our relationship dramas.

It is not necessary to do more than follow your Heart and find your Bliss. If we all did that with integrity in the first place, a lot of us wouldn’t have been pretending to be somebody we’re not just to secure a relationship with someone we already knew wasn’t the best fit for us on any number of levels but whom we were confident we could change.

(Leo Moon aligned with Alphard in the Head of the Hydra) – Sometimes we’re just in love with the idea of who it is we wish our “significant other” candidate actually was. “When the honeymoon is over” the facade slowly dissolves, pretenses are dropped, and we revert to the reality of who we really are. And then the defense mechanisms begin to fire up and things get ugly. That’s why relationships are so hard to hold together. It’s a matter of emotional integrity.

Today as we’re reflecting on our emotional issues (Cancer Moon) as they apply to our relationships (reflecting the light of the Sun in Libra), let’s try simply observing them so we can identify whatever sticks out that we need to work on.

And let’s not be too hard on ourselves or anybody else today. (Mercury retrograde in Scorpius) It’s a changing world out there. (Mars aligned with Alpha Ophiuchus) We’re on a fact-finding mission, not an arraignment hearing.

Asclepius, Antares and Rho Ophiuchus

Mercury turns retrograde today in Constellation Scorpius while Asteroid Apollo aligns with Alpha Ophiuchus and Asteroid Hermes applies to an alignment with Alpha Scorpius, Omega and Zeta Ophiuchus and Rho Ophiuchus.

Both asteroids are Apollo class asteroids.

The Apollo asteroids are a group of near-Earth asteroids named after 1862 Apollo, the first asteroid of this group to be discovered. They are Earth-crosser asteroids that have orbital semi-major axes greater than that of the Earth (> 1 AU) and a perihelion distance (q) < 1.017 AU. Some can get very close to the Earth, making them a potential threat to our planet (the closer their semi-major axis is to Earth’s, the less eccentricity is needed for the orbits to cross). (Info Source: Wikipedia)

The implications of today’s alignments are twofold.

  1. The more distant stars and celestial objects in the Constellation Ophiuchus star field are being drawn closer to the Earth and Humanity metaphysically as Earth-crosser Asteroids named for Olympian relatives of the Greek God of Healing & Wisdom Asclepius align to the two most significant coordinates in the Ophiuchus constellation with such precision timing.
  2. As Mercury turns retrograde today extraordinary Apollo Class Asteroid Hermes (the Greek form of Mercury), mysterious and enigmatic in every way, remains behind in Constellation Scorpius like a bookmark, maintaining Hermes-Mercury continuity in the most critical constellation on the Zodiac Belt right now — Scorpius.

The Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy will suffer no setbacks as Mercury – the planetary intelligence speaking for new Zodiac Constellation Ophiuchus – turns retrograde at a critical time. With twin forms of Hermes coming and going in Constellation Scorpius at the same time, we don’t have to wonder if the Ophiuchus energy workers and Ophiuchus itself will be compromised by the retrogradation.

Horse & Pipe Nebula | Constellation Ophiuchus

The Mars-Alpha Ophiuchus Initiation and Activation frequencies are strengthening as the Ecliptic Plane (Zodiac Belt coordinates) alignment near the culmination point.

If you know where your planets, asteroids and stars are in their natural zodiac houses (using Astronomy) then you have opened your waking consciousness wide to heighten your experience of the energy being generated and you’ll be able to track it accurately.

You should be able to intellectualize and feel (Gemini-Cancer Moon) the energy being distributed to the parts of your various bodies where you will be able to use them for healing and in your own personal lives.

We can’t stress strongly enough the value of having or acquiring a map so you will know what to expect and how best your gifts can be used.

Alternatively, you can fly by the seat of your pants — and there is nothing wrong with that approach at all. It makes for an especially exciting cosmic roller coaster ride which is the experience some of us choose to come here at this time to enjoy.

11:11:11 Rose Star Gate Activity

Purple Rose of Virgo Galaxy

Saturn is between the Gateposts of the Celestial Rose Star Gate we’ve spoken of in previous Oph ‘Scopes this week. The range of Saturn’s Astrological effects on this Star Gate includes:

  • Stabilization, organization, purpose, contraction, constriction, limitation, discipline

On the Tree of Life (Holy Kabbalah), Saturn is the Third Sphere (Binah, Understanding, the Supernal Mother).

In Esoteric Astrology, Saturn is a Ray 3 planet together with Earth.

Remember that Astrological Virgo is the Earth sign that is associated with Agriculture and the Divine Feminine.

Rather than pick and choose what meaning I would give Saturn’s alignment at this Star Gate to convince you to see things the same way as I do, I’m leaving you with this short list of attributes for Saturn and prompting you to do your own thinking and feeling about it as the Moon transits Gemini and Cancer today.

Our choices are to think and feel for ourselves or continue to leak and gift our power to others who may not have our best interests at Heart and may not even have a mean or malevolent reason for directing our misplaced trust (Pluto in Sagittarius – square to – Uranus Rx in Pisces).

Startistics is not a Brainwash — it’s a Workshop. In Oph ‘Scopes I share my notes and experiences. It’s up to you to take it from there. My feeling is that my thinking works for me but you may have ideas of your own. I share what I have and put you on your own to follow in my research footsteps so you can see for yourself where I get my concepts. As we all know there is so much outdated and corrupted information coming to the surface it’s risky to be confident in our facts. The challenge is to take what we find on Faith or do the footwork required to back our Faith up with what Facts we can find.

All of that having been said I stand like Hecate at the Crossroads holding the bright Lamp of my metaphysical experience at this Star Gateway and suggest for your consideration that Saturn is poised at the 11:11:11 Celestial Rose Stargate in Her capacity as Initiator. More than that I cannot say. I’ve attempted to write more here but it just won’t stick to the page. You’ll have to figure out on your own what sort of Initiation you’re taking today. Apparently it is not for me to say (Saturn limiting me).

Mercury Retrograde Tomorrow

I may be late posting the Oph ‘Scope for November 6. I have an appointment in the morning that will probably go all day and as it stands at the moment I can’t bring myself to write about this Mercury retrograde until I’m inside its energy sphere (which I’m not at the moment). Mercury is all about communication, and I have to respect that despite the schedule for posting that I have set for myself.

I may have spent the last 25 years exploring and researching the celestial and mythical worlds of Constellation Ophiuchus but I don’t pretend to know all that is going on between it and the planets that will transit it this year. But I do feel comfortable making some suggestions (see below) and leaving you to get a feel for the energy for yourselves in the context of the information I have managed to dig up over the years and post on my two web sites.

Snake Nebula

Snake Nebula | Constellation Ophiuchus

The Snake Nebula (also known as Barnard 72) is a dark nebula in the Ophiuchus constellation. It is a small but readily apparent S-shaped dust lane that snakes out in front of the Milky Way star clouds from the north-north-west edge of the bowl of the Pipe Nebula. Its thickness runs between 2′ and 3′ and runs around 6′ in the north-west / south-east orientation. A good view in a 4″ to 6″ telescope requires clear dark skies.

It is part of the much larger Dark Horse Nebula.

To the right side of the Snake Nebula is found Barnard 68. Below it are found Barnard 69, Barnard 70, and Barnard 74.

As we have mentioned before, the Mars transit is probably the most important Ophiuchus transit of all the planets this year. As the “ruler” of Aries it signals the first burst of spring and the impulse to spring to life. As “ruler” of Scorpius it can also represent the sting of death. Now that we know about Constellation Ophiuchus, we can see how the association of Mars with the cutting instruments of the physician came into being.

Thanks also to the bursting forth of Constellation Ophiuchus, we have found and highlighted the ancient association of Mars with all forms of the Serpentine and even with the Eagle. Hence, since this is the first Mars transit of Ophiuchus since Ophiuchus was released into mainstream consciousness on or around January 13, 2011, the current Mars-Ophiuchus Activation would seem to be of special importance.

Wherever your planets and asteroids are on your natal sky charts, any Mars transits of those planets since Ophiuchus was unveiled are signalling where your special Serpent Energy gifts are. After the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle transition has reached its next stage (Serpent) your energy levels — especially your kundalini or Serpent Power — will elevate to a new vibrational level and sound-light frequency.

Today’s Lunar Energy

Rosette Nebula, Constellation Monoceros the Unicorn

The Moon spends the day in Gemini starting with an alignment to Rosette Nebula in Constellation Monoceros the Unicorn. Later it transits the Canis Major zone of Constellation Gemini and ends the day aligned with Alpha Gemini, Castor.

To accelerate healing energy today make use of magical companion animal and flower power, especially dogs and roses.

If we really wanted help  maintaining harmonious relations with other people, we would consider taking lessons from our domestic animals who love us unconditionally. They tend to be excellent judges of human character and they can’t lie.

We should also consider making better use of aromatherapy in our everyday lives. The olfactory system is powerful. Smells go straight to the brain. Once they get there, they’ve done their job. Maybe it’s time to try smelling better. The Moon’s suggested aroma of the day comes from its alignment to Rosette Nebula in Constellation Monoceros the Unicorn. The entire animal is magical but especially the horn as it was reputed to be an instrument of miracle healing.

What does it all mean? Newly discovered celestial objects and planet/star frequencies in transition as the entire Solar System and Galaxy enter a New Age make it risky at best to predict the physical effects of today’s planetary aspects in Constellation Ophiuchus. Those of you with conjunctions on your sky charts are in the best position to experience the frequencies first.

For detailed information on the Ophiuchus astronomy-astrology perspective, follow the links provided in the table above to articles about today’s main players, Mars, Quaoar, and the Pulsar Planet discovered last year in Constellation Serpens Cauda.

Taurus-Orion-Gemini Moon

Meanwhile, as Mars activates the Alpha Ophiuchus zone (and vice-versa, Alpha Ophiuchus initiates Mars) the Moon has been preparing us subconsciously as it transited the “power zones” of Constellation Taurus mentioned in yesterday’s Oph ‘Scope.

Asklepius and Hygeia

Taurus is the Zodiac’s polarity energy to the entire Constellation Ophiuchus expanse. Hence it shouldn’t take a lot of imagination to fathom what this energy polarity has to do with the Staff of Asclepius and the New Planetary Caduceus — and why it was a goddess who was depicted in Greek art as the actual “serpent handler.” Taurus and Scorpius are both water signs. By extension, then, Ophiuchus is a water sign when it is not acting in its Etheric (World Savior-Christ) capacity.

Above-right: Asclepius with Telesforos and Hygeia
Roman Diptych, c. 400/430 AD Museum on Merseyside, Liverpool

Normally Asclepius is pictured as holding the staff with the serpent wrapped around it. We never actually see him working with the serpent.

Notice in the carvings above-right the active-passive body language that distinguishes Asclepius from his “daughter” Hygiea. Even the open/active body language of the Telesforos matches that of Hygeia.

M58 Barred Spiral Galaxy in Virgo

Superstorm Sandy was powerful and continues to make its presence felt. But it doesn’t hold a candle to what’s going on out in the Cosmos from Earth’s perspective today.

If you have been following Ophiuchus Horoscopes since we began offering them last September then you may already be familiar with the raw power inherent in Constellation Taurus:

  • the Perseus and Pleiades zones
  • the Eye of the Bull, Alpha Taurus (Aldebaran)
  • M1 Taurus A, the Crab Nebula
  • the 82nd Ecliptic Degree meridian and
  • The Constellation Orion Zone featuring Orion’s Belt, known to be aligned with the 3 Great Pyramids at Giza, Egypt.

I will leave it to you to do the footwork of going back through older Oph ‘Scopes if you want to review or be introduced to the celestial objects in this sector of the Zodiac Sphere.

M64 Black Eye Galaxy | Constellation Coma Berenices

It will be interesting to see how today’s celestial alignments affect our planet at the physical Earth level. The energy interactions will affect us mentally, emotionally and spiritually in real time as, for instance, the USA deals with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Because the vibrations of the Earth Plane are dense and slow by comparison, it will take Time for the celestial energies to be stepped down to the point where we can see physical evidence of their effects.

For example, using the metaphor of the Bull as Beast of Burden we can see there is a lot of hard, expensive work ahead of us as power is restored and the East Coast is put back together again. And that will take Time. Hence, the incredibly powerful energies being generated today will make themselves felt in due time — it’s just a question of when, where and how. Stay alert.

Using another familiar metaphor for Taurus the Bull, the Sacred Cow image, and bringing our attention gently back to Ophiuchus, we can view rebuilding activity as the consequence of an Act of God/Goddess. Building and Rebuilding fall in the Ophiuchus domain as well as the Taurus domain through Ophiuchus’s association with  Egyptian God of Healing & Science Imhotep who was the Master Architect and Builder of King Djoser’s famous Step Pyramid at Saqqara, Egypt.

Mars in Constellation Ophiuchus suggests activation, initialization and initiation of activity.

The storm activity itself may have been inconvenient and life-threatening. But it was also cleansing, purifying, purging and clearing. We can see how Earth and Sky, God and Goddess, combined to bring a powerful message of change-on-the-way as the Eye of Sandy passed between New York and Washington D.C. as though threading a cosmic needle.

And speaking of New York, that reminds to remind you all about December 12, 2012.

Welcome to Ophiuchus Celestial Alchemy Lab 101

NGC 6384 Spiral Galaxy in Constellation Ophiuchus is in Ecliptic & Equatorial alignment with Alpha Oph (Rasalhague)

As November opens, those of us who are learning about Ophiuchus are sitting in on a Celestial Alchemy Lab Class. The results of this grand experiment in bringing healing and peace to a troubled planet are for all to observe and consider. So keep your eyes, ears and nose open so you can formulate your own opinions and participate at your own pace and level.

Today Mars in Ophiuchus aligns with Eta Ophiuchus (Sabik) and Asteroid Demeter moves into alignment with what modern Astrologers see as the stinger tail stars of the Giant Scorpion

Scorpius has an ancient history of being seen as a snake. It is also esoterically associated with the Eagle. But modern “parlor” Astrology doesn’t dig into those details and most Astrologers stick with the surface interpretation of the modern Zodiac Signs.

Of relevance to us here today, the Giant Scorpion constellation in fact lost its beautiful claws to Libra in the time of Julius Caesar. And then in 1930 the IAU (International Astronomical Union) cut Ophiuchus out of its belly. All that’s left of Scorpius today is a snake-shaped little squiggle that terminates near Galactic Center in two stars, Lesath and Shaula. A stinger only needs one star to get the job done. Two stars make a dandy forked tongue.

That’s my story and I’m s-s-s-s-stickin’ to it! (Please pass the popcorn. ;-) )

There are no planetary alignments to Antares, the Heart of the Scorpion, today as there was on September 11, 2001 so don’t worry. There is no Cosmic Cause for concern.

However, the possibility of “routine” accidental death or similar tragedy in our personal, planetary and world affairs, cannot be completely counted out unless the Scorpion-Serpent-Eagle Alchemy is taking hold.

If the Ophidian Current that was activated last month is beginning to seep into the pores of our Minds and Hearts then Spontaneous Miracle Healing (including disaster aversion) can begin to take place regularly and in a more noticeable way if you know what the signs are. Already groups of people are beginning to train their group consciousness on such threats as severe weather and chem trails to transmute, avert and wave off danger and achieve success. When you see enough of this sort of thing happening there can be no doubt that it is a short hop to putting the entire planet back in the Pink in very short order.

So keep practicing with it!

The Moon, Jupiter Rx, Jobs & Money

Last May the Federal Government decided California’s unemployment figure was better than it was three years ago so they’ve cut off federal aid to the State as of December 30, 2012. Even if you had money coming to you as a result of an active claim (raising my hand — that would be me) pay-outs will be cut off.

If you need some help getting back to work, today’s Lunar transit of the Eye of the Bull combined with today’s and tomorrow’s energy from the Moon-Jupiter Rx conjunction convince some employers to re-hire laid-off workers. People in charge of distributing money to those whose money supply has been cut off reluctantly admit some people are being squeezed too hard and take a step toward easing up on those who are willing to work but unable to find a job.

Restoration of economic assistance may be forthcoming in the upcoming Mercury retrograde period — we shall just have to wait and see.


About Donna

I initiated my mysticism & occult path with a course in Astrology from the Rosicrucian Fellowship in 1970. In 1987 as I was preparing to become a professional Astrologer I bought a sky atlas for fun and found constellation Ophiuchus walking along the zodiac belt. I was shocked. I've dedicated myself to evolving Astrology for the New Age ever since then. Let those with the ears to hear, hear. Take what resonates. Leave the rest.
