Today, Mars squares Pluto. It pulls up the power issues that we are working through, personally and collectively. It brings to light the abuses that we’ve normalized and the ones that we don’t know how to deal with once we’ve been made aware of them.
.
Personally, I have multiple family members accused of sexual assault. I love them and I believe their accusers. I watched the abuse that they had to endure as children. I saw all the ways in which they had to medicate themselves to survive when they got older. But even if that wasn’t the case, even if we had a perfect childhood, I know that the world we all grew up in and out of is toxic. It’s a world that teaches us to dehumanize others. It’s a world that leaves too much room for abuses to go unchecked.
.
I know that hurt people hurt people. I believe that healing people can bring more healing into the world. But dismissing the allegations of victims won’t help any of us. It won’t bring healing. It will never bring justice. We need community accountability. Just because someone has been good to us doesn’t mean that they have been that way with everyone. I can have love for the people in my life that have caused incredible harm to others while still holding them accountable. It requires that I feel the heartbreak of their actions. The shame of it. The pain of it. It requires that I feel grief. It requires that I investigate my own actions and impact, because there is no doubt in my mind that I have hurt many people in my life. None of us are free from being human. All of us are part of this world. All of us can learn how to do less and less harm and the fist thing we can do is believe those that come forward. Because #MeToo ❤️

Scorpio’s strength can teach us many things, one of which is to learn how to stay with a process until we get to and through its transformation. Not to change for the sake of changing, but to be connected to the organic, alchemical process that is always occurring. In all life around us. In every life form. In every aspect of the universe. Nature is always becoming. We are always becoming.
.
Recently there has been an incredible amount of emotional material for us all to reflect upon. Every story we hear changes us a little. Pushes up against our beliefs. Asks us how we will hold the complexities of the situation. Asks us what healing might look like in a world created to keep us harmed and harming. How might we turn the poisons that are being pulled out into potions for our transformation, liberation and healing?
.
It’s so important for us to stay with these questions. To stay with these feelings. To explore ways of holding one another accountable and creating spaces where our wounds can mend, survivors get a chance to heal and we work on creating a world that inflicts less and less harm.
.
May the new moon in Scorpio help us awaken to each and every choice that we have to do so and may we have the strength, wisdom and heart to choose love when and where we can. The world needs oh so much of it. 🌘🖤🔮👁️🔮🖤🌒

In the dark is Scorpio’s favorite place to be. The moon is currently releasing the last of its light, preparing for renewal come the wee hours of Saturday morning. Exact at 3:42 AM PT, the new moon in Scorpio brings us information from the depths. From our unconscious. From emotional patterns that lay far beneath the surface of our personality. Coming into contact with this material can sometimes feel overwhelming. Being inside of an emotional experience gives us little perspective. Being connected to ourselves through difficulty is no small task. It requires us to stay in the moment. Breath by breath. Heartbeat by heartbeat.
.
Remember to tune into the transformational power of love. Remember that love carries with it the greatest energetic imprint. Greater than fear. Greed. Violence. Love is the greatest resource we have. Your heart knows that. Your heart holds that wisdom within it. Your heart can awaken to love’s power at a moments notice. Remover to tune into it, channel it towards yourself, your loved ones, your day, your projects and your problems. Send love to whatever you are struggling with.

This week, along with a new moon in the emotionally intense sign of Scorpio, Mars makes a square to Pluto. Mars is our drive, aggression and ability to seek out what we want in life no matter the conflicts that come. Pluto represents the underworld and the vast resources that lay there, as well as the hellish journeys that we have to take to reach them. Pluto transforms us, but not without an incredible effort on our part. Any time these two come into a tense aspect, like a square, it’s extremely wise to work with our most difficult feelings. Feelings of powerlessness, rage, discomfort, envy. No feeling is bad, but not making them conscious can create conditions where we do harm. Do what you can to help yourself through. Just naming your feelings is enough sometimes. Reminding yourself that it’s OK to have them. Reminding yourself that having them just makes you human.

.
Within this lunar cycle is the last Mercury retrograde of 2017 (December 2nd- 22nd). Covering incredibly important terrain, Mercury’s retrograde will help us wrap up some major life lessons. If you want a deeper understanding of how all of this astrology plays out for you, please join me for this new moon intensive 🖤

Few things are sweeter in astrology than a Venus/Jupiter conjunction, but in Scorpio there is a bitterness to balance out anything overwhelmingly saccharine. Today should be spent celebrating the beauty that dealing with the more difficult side of life can bring. Scorpio demands that we work with all aspects of our experience, particularly the painful. Scorpio shows us that when we do so, we are granted access to incredible depth, heightened ability to experience pleasure, and a greater appreciation for all of life’s textures.
.
Healing never ceases to reveal its gifts.
.
Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio bring into awareness the incredible abundance of opportunities to heal, or destroy, that are always in front of us. Sometimes parts of our lives need to be composted, turned into rich soul for regrowth. Sometimes we need to sit with the feelings of wanting to destroy what is uncomfortable, but ultimately necessary for our growth. Learning the difference between the two needs to be a life-long commitment for most of us. .
Your horoscopes are up and written affirmation style for the new moon, but they also take into account today’s Venus/Jupiter conjunction as well as the rest of the week’s astrology. Since this week the moon’s light diminishes ever more each day, we can use this week to cleanse, release and prepare ourselves for the resetting that will take place with Saturday’s new moon. Use the affirmations as often as you like this week to reset and re-orient your awareness towards your own cleansing, growth and healing. Venus and Jupiter together also help us understand our desires, passion and the growth that comes from experiencing the joy that is ever present within us. May this new moon bring us closer to an honest, deep, unending joy. One that is healing, cleansing and empowering.

Today, Saturn in Sagittarius makes its 3rd and final trine to Uranus. Saturn is tradition, Uranus is invention. Saturn sticks to norms, no matter how oppressive. Uranus breaks all norms, no matter how valuable.
🔻
We always need a mix of both.
🔺
Saturn gives us the structure, the container, for our experience. Boundaries. Form. Solid walls to work within. Uranus gives us options that exist outside of our known reality. Extreme departures. Wild adventures. Answers we didn’t know existed. 🔻
Saturn is ending its time in Sagittarius, all of the bbs born between November 17th, 1985-February 13th 1988 have Saturn in Sagittarius (double check if you are born ON the start or end date) are finishing up their Saturn return. You all were born when Saturn and Uranus were both in Sagittarius. Your cohort came to bring through a very important innovative understanding of how to work within the structures existing. Which to smash completely. Which to revise. Which to divest or invest in.
🔺
In a very inspired, dramatic, seeking for truth kind of way.
🔻
As you all finish up your Saturn return, both planets are once again signaling that the near impossible feat of combining these energies must be attempted. What forms, structures and traditions have you had to smash completely over the past 2.5 years? How are you a different person than you were a few years ago? What has matured within you? What do you now know you can do, no matter what comes at you?
🔺
Whatever age we are, Saturn return or not, we need structures that uphold equity, justice and healing. But we need to build a bridge from this structure, a structure that was built to uphold white-supremacist, capitalist patriarchy, to that one.
🔻
There are, no doubt, amazing breakthroughs that are happening in this moment. Horrors (Jupiter IS in Scorpio) come to light. Abuses by the dozens are exposed every day. The structure is rotten. It will not hold us going forward. It’s time to cleanse ourselves of what systems do not work and put our energy towards what will. In every aspect of our lives.
🔺
Let us cleanse.

TFW the moon is in Leo during Scorpio season.
.
Today the moon in Leo will make a conjunction with the north node, the eclipse point. This exaggerates the need to express ourselves. Exaggerates our creative power. Exaggerates our flare for the dramatic. The moon also forms a grand trine in fire with Saturn and Uranus.
.
Serve the world your weird, bbs. .
By late tonight the moon will cross over the degree of last August’s total solar eclipse. Feelings might get heated. Dear ones might be feeling burnt out. All the children might want to PLAY. It’s a high energy kind of day. Filled with creative chaos to make use of. Or sleep through. Whatever you need, give it to yourself. .
The next new moon in Scorpio squares the eclipse point and the nodes.
.
We are half way between the last eclipse and the next one.
.

This is the point at which we start to witness some of what the August eclipse meant. Whatever seeds we planted then are struggling to find their shape as independent creations now. Whatever that eclipse triggered in our chart might now be making more sense to us. Keep gathering facts and serving your creative aspirations. The next eclipse in Leo will approve and uplift your efforts. 🐯🔥❤️🔥🦁

Witches!! When you are done voting, your horoscopes await you on the site⛓️link in bio⛓️Here’s a little of the intro:
.

It’s impossible to heal something we aren’t willing to expose. Open up about. Learn from.
.
It’s impossible to understand what might be needed from a situation if we are too afraid to have it revealed. Witnessed by others. Affirmed by those who have experienced it too.
.

It’s impossible to move forward if we aren’t prepared to address, and attempt to heal, the wounds of our past. The wounds that we keep circling around. The wounds that we are meant to reduce to just a memory for future generations to come.
.
This Scorpio season has been relentless in helping us the excavate abuses of power that have been normalized for too long.
.

Witnessing this kind of harm demands that we hold an incredible tension within us. It requires that we come to terms with the fact that we all contain the ability to do great things. Horrific and heroic. It requires that we learn how to keep coming back to our centers. Filling up on what cannot run dry.
.
Surviving Scorpio season’s revelations requires we get very close to the sources of sweetness that can sustain us.
.
This week Venus, the planet that brings pleasure and connection, ventures into Scorpio’s mysterious and sometimes treacherous waters. Not known for its graceful or diplomatic abilities, Venus in Scorpio struggles to experience the ease that the planet of love is famous for. Joined by Jupiter, the two together have the ability to bring about something wonderful, if a little exaggerated.
.
What, we might ask, is “wonderful” to Scorpio? The sting of truth? The depths explored? The alchemical transformations that turn compost into rich soil? To the tender-hearted, Scorpio’s process can be more harrowing than hopeful. But we need this medicine.
.

Scorpio pulls out the poisons. Reveals the wounds. Reveals the extent to which repair must be done. Reveals what we need to develop within ourselves in order to hold the whole experience.

Loves, if you don’t know who @adriennemareebrown is yet, please find out. She is an incredible scholar, pleasure activist, writer, space holder, possibility weaver, heart healer and a total joy to learn with and from. Order her book, Emergent Strategies. Watch her videos on YouTube. Go to her website and get her activism on your radar. She interviewed me today at the @chi_humanities and brought such generosity and joy to the space. It was such an honor to be there and in such extraordinary company. So grateful to Tiffanie Beatty and all who came out, on a Sunday afternoon no less!
.
One of the best antidotes to fear is connection. I know the news is constantly overwhelming and impossible to sort through day to day. I know that there was just another mass shooting in a church in Texas. I know that this moment in our evolution is incredibly painful and incredibly important. Tonight, Adrienne spoke about how important pleasure, love and joy is in any movement. In every movement. So that each of us want more of it. Wants to be a part of it.
.
May we find ways to bring ourselves and one another into relationship with all of that and then some. In even the smallest of ways. .
Chicago, I thank you for bringing me such joy. You’ve healed a little part of my heart and given me some hope to go home with. Sending love and healing out❤️

Today through Tuesday the moon is in the sign of the twins. This deep into Scorpio Season a little effervescent air energy is welcome. This moon can remind us that we need to keep things circulating (blood, energy, love, laughter, wisdom, tears, tales of woe and wonder) when the more densely felt days weigh too heavily on our hearts.
.
Call a friend. Chat with folks you run into for a little longer than you normally would. Read something insightful. Write something that you need to get off your chest. Connect with the information that inspires you. .
The ruler of the moon, Mercury also changes signs today. Entering Sagittarius, the sign of its detriment, Mercury tends to get a little messy in this sign, though stays forever inspired to learn more. Off on wild tangents, discoveries and mental adventures, Mercury in Sagittarius never stops questing for the Truth. Or telling you about it.
.
Mercury will be in Sagittarius until January, as it’s next retrograde will be spent in this sign (December 2-22). With such a looooong stint in Sagittarius we’ll get extra information and multiple opportunities to investigate and learn from this transit. Look to see what house in your chart contains Sagittarius to 👁️ what area of life you might be reviewing, reworking and relearning. Saturn is finishing up its 2+ year transit in Sagittarius at the same time, so this becomes an doubly important area of our chart/life to tend to. This week Saturn makes its last trine to Uranus. This transit reminds us of the importance of staying open to change, to innovation and to unique opportunities in this area of life. ❤️

Taurus medicine is slow. Steady. Solid. Stubborn. Taurus knows how to be an anchor. For everyone else. For every budding project. For every burgeoning thing.
.
Taurus isn’t going anywhere.
.

It knows that right here is the place to be. It knows how to attract good things to it. Ruled by Venus, this sign reigns supreme in fertility. Generosity. Warmth. Ability to magnetize what it wants. Taurus knows that there is great beauty, wisdom and abundance to be experienced when we learn how to let things live. In their own way. In their own time. Taurus has the patience of the Cosmic Parent. Able to love with great awareness of the time it takes to learn life’s lessons. It feels no need to rush its children, friends, lovers or self. It knows there is no “there” to get to.
.

Only this moment to enjoy.
.

Taurus is a medicine much needed when overwhelmed. Anxious. Nervous. Insecure. It reminds us to find something simple to anchor our life in. Skin on skin. Honey on lips. Hand in hand.
.

Taurus reminds us to find some simple pleasure to worship. The sway of a tree branch. The sway of a hip. The act of being swayed by love in all its forms.
.

Taurus teaches us that anything we wish to bring into form benefits greatly from a little more of our presence. A little more of our attention. A little more patience for its process.
.
On November 3rd at 10.23 PM PT, the full moon will occur at 12° of Taurus. True to form, this full moon is a beautiful one. The Hunter’s Moon in the Northern Hemisphere and the second full moon of springtime in the Southern Hemisphere, this full moon anchors us in whichever season we are experiencing.
.
The moon, exalted in Taurus, is comfortable. Cozy. Concerned with securing its needs and producing what can create nourishment for for the multitudes.
.
This full moon sends a trine to Pluto, reminding us of the power of laying one brick at a time. It also sends a sextile to Neptune, encouraging us to connect to something larger than ourselves. -FULL POST UP IN SITE 🔗IN BIO

This is the season of the Witch.
👁️
Though magic is always in season, at this time we collectively make room for the archetypal imagery of healers, priestesses, midwives and all kinds of witches who work with earth-based wisdom traditions. Witches work with rhythms, seasons, and the power present in the living world. No matter how much patriarchal violence has been inflicted upon the people and the systems of knowledge that are connected to the term “witch” over the last few thousand years, these practices have always managed to survive.
👁️
What is life-enhancing can never be completely destroyed.
👁️
As white-supremacist, colonialist, capitalist patriarchy dies, the traditions that it has tried to obliterate experience a resurgence. An awakening. A renewal. Every culture on earth has its own systems of healing. Each one of us can dig into our lineages to better understand what kind of magic we might come from. Each one of us can call on the protective forces that we need at any time. Protective forces that look, sound, smell or feel personally resonant for us. We are free to reorganize our own cultural rituals to be more inclusive of ourselves and our communities. We are free to connect to forces that have not been previously named or recorded. We may very well need to reclaim the forces, deities and practices that have been misnamed, misrepresented, and misappropriated.
👁️
What is sacred and life-affirming for us wants a place on our altars.
👁️
This is a season that reminds us of our spiritual, political and familial ancestry. The pain. The strength. The shame. The theft. The loss. The love. The souls that we come from that could not be diminished, no matter the material reality they had to live within.
👁️
This season reminds us of those in our lineage that suffered for no good reason. Those that caused suffering, perhaps for reasons they could not escape or for reasons that they chose not to. And those that did both. We are reminded how we too, are both. We do harm. We are harmed. We try to heal, hopefully.

Till Tuesday the moon is in the loopy waters of Pisces. A mutable water sign, Pisces cannot be contained, controlled or defined. It is a sign that can be everywhere and absolutely nowhere all at once.
👻
As the veils thin over Samhain, the moon in Pisces and sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio, gives these next few days an magical water mark. A depth of feeling. A heightened sensitivity.
🎃
For those already porous, this is a time where you may want to be extra protective of your energy, boundaries and time. Carve pumpkins and place them around you home for protection, sweep your home to cleanse out old energy and nourish yourself with foods from your family recipe books that make you feel full of goodness. Love. Energetic protection.

From Friday to Sunday the moon is in Aquarius. This sign’s key phrase is “I know”. Annoying as it is, it’s also usually true. Aquarius is a fixed, air sign, so its intellect is unusually strong. Clear. Confident. You cannot force a half-baked fact onto an Aquarius. They will run circles around flaky concepts. Unless of course they have made up facts for themselves that aren’t based in anyone else’s reality. Then it’s near impossible to convince them otherwise.
👁️

Aquarius can cling stubbornly to their ideas, an incredible talent when most of the world’s thinking is upside down and inside out.
👁️
We can use this waxing moon in Aquarius to make clear and affirming statements about what we are calling into our lives. Especially if that includes an unwavering commitment to the truth and the courage to do what we need to with it.

Today, Jupiter and the sun make their annual conjunction. For the first time in 12 years, they do so in Scorpio. This conjunction confirms the inklings that we have about what Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio will bring us. Over the next 13 months, we are asked to grapple with our deepest fears in order to find a new kind of confidence. A sun/Jupiter conjunction is generally incredibly affirming, positive and optimistic. But Scorpio’s optimism isn’t the fairytale kind. It is the kind that stems from the understanding that the best we can do is address things with as much honesty as possible, hoping for nothing but the truth to be upheld.

Today may bring you the ability to perceive certain powers that you possess. Scorpio is always teaching us about the power that lays within, waiting to be utilized. Scorpio teaches us about what happens when we use that power without consciousness, we undoubtedly end up stinging ourselves. Scorpio teaches us what happens when we are able to use our power knowing full well that each one of us possesses both the ability to do great good and great destruction, in equal measure. That’s what witches know. None of us are immune to greed, hatred or envy. We must always be mindful of being consumed by it. But none of us are unworthy of acceptance, appreciation and the healing powers of unconditional love, either.
.
👁️
.
Right now we are being called to help this world heal. By being aware of our power. Unwilling to project it onto others. Unwilling to use it against one another. Unwilling to be used by forces that wish to pit us against one another for their own power trips and material gain. .
👁️
.
Today’s astrology can reveal the incredible appetite we have to transform our systems into something sustainable, equitable and prosperous for all, and the importance of doing so while being committed to our own personal healing so that we don’t keep recreating the same old paradigms. Pain. Abuse. It’s up to us to do. For ourselves, for our ancestors, and for future life on this earth. It will take all the witches we can gather

Every morning for the past few weeks I have woken up in the pre-dawn hours to see Venus as a brilliant morning star. I don’t always appreciate the 4 am cosmic alarm clock, but the brilliant light of Venus is something to behold. Each morning I am reminded of the way in which its journey through Libra is impacting my life. Stirring my awareness. Reminding me of what I need. Reminding me that there are problems I cannot solve in this moment. Reminding me that some things need to rest in order for me to understand what might be done about them, eventually.
.

.
This week’s astrology features Jupiter’s conjunction with the sun and the square between Venus and Pluto. Though very different in nature, both of these transits ask us to consider what long-term transformations we are making. What depths we are willing to go to in order to heal. What damage we can do, or allow to be done to us, when we stay unconscious to our own hurting places.
.
🐍
.
But transformation can’t take place in a day. There are moments where we need to let our issues rest. Where we need to give them time and space to teach us the lessons we have yet to understand. Sometimes we need to trust the process, no matter how painful or mysterious.
.
🔮
.
The sun/Jupiter conjunction reminds us to have faith in something greater than ourselves. The Venus/Pluto square teaches us about where and when we are allowing harm to happen, to ourselves or others, and it gives us the opportunity to deepen our awareness of that dynamic. So we might heal it in ourselves, and therefore, heal a small piece of it in the world.

.
Depth isn’t acquired in a day. It can’t be purchased. It can’t be feigned. It is the gift we receive over time. Over heartbreak. Over earthquakes. Over the accumulations of all acts of love that we allow in.
🔮

Depth requires that we learn what to release and what to stay with. What to take responsibility for and what to give back to its rightful owner. What to hold and what to act on.
🔮

Depth requires that we move through cycles. Allowing our leaves to fall away like the trees teach us. Allowing our energy drop down into the roots like the plants teach us. Allowing ourselves to move into the healing dark like this season teaches us.
🔮

It is impossible to deepen when we don’t give ourselves time to recall. Reflect. Respond to the lessons.
🔮

As the sun, Mercury and Jupiter move through Scorpio, we are being asked to drop our awareness down. Just below the surface of our lives. And deeper when we can. To the underlying root systems of our feelings. To the abandonment issues that threaten to tear down what we are trying to build. To the fear of rejection that impedes us from trying to connect to what is good in our lives.
🔮
.

With Jupiter there, our work is rewarded.
.
🔮

As Jupiter and the sun make a conjunction in Scorpio for the first time in 12 years, a bright spot appears in the dark. This conjunction confirms the inklings that we have about what Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio will bring us. Over the next 13 months, we are asked to grapple with our deepest fears in order to find a new kind of confidence. A sun/Jupiter conjunction is generally incredibly affirming, positive and optimistic. But Scorpio’s optimism isn’t the fairytale kind. It is the kind that stems from the understanding that the best we can do is address things with as much honesty as possible, hoping for nothing but the truth to be upheld.
🔮
This week’s subterranean soul-searching is made all the more intense by Venus’s square to Pluto. Pluto drags us into underworld initiations. Venus teaches us the fine art of partnership. Any good relationship will help us do our deepest work.
