Uranus Square Natal Moon

Posted in Luna, Scorpio, Sun, Uranus on 11/11/2009 by nemain nyx

I just had to post this, it’s absolutely what I’ve been going through (thanks alabe) with the added fun of the Sun/Uranus trine:

Uranus is Square your Moon applying with an orb of 00 degrees 35 minutes.
Be ready for unstable conditions and last minute changes. This could be a time when the usual rules are suspended and anything goes, or it could be a time of emotional excitement, wide mood swings, disturbances in sleeping, and strange psychic tendencies. It all depends on how flexible you are. Unusual and strong-willed females may play a role in your life now, and there may be surprise visits as well. Your domestic life may be changing, and residential moves are likely to occur quickly and suddenly.

So to be open about what I’ve been thus far extremely vague about: my boyfriend and I are going through some issues and may go our separate ways. I hate to think that this relationship would be one of the first victims of my Saturn Return, but it looks like that’s the situation.

I’ve gone through a myriad of complex emotions in the last few weeks, but today I finally woke up with a sense of peace. Nothing about the difficult situation changed overnight, just my mood.

There are some positive transits playing a role in this: namely my Solar Return (hooray me!), but also a Venus/n. Mercury conjunct assisting me in doing what my Gemini Rising does best: talk about my relationship and what is important to me. So here’s to growing and changing with Saturn in Libra.

Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Gemini

From Serennu Astrology:

Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Gemini

As yesterday we have the bright, clever, sociable Gemini Moon combined with the deeply insightful but more secretive Scorpio Sun. On the surface they don’t really want the same things, but they can work together to use one another’s strengths – the potential is for brilliant wit with penetrating insight, the Gemini Moon providing a “socially acceptable face” to bring through Scorpio’s intensity. There’s also, much potential for clever-sounding, witty, but deeply cutting remarks that feel good (Moon) at the time, but will be regretted later. Definitely watch the tongue today, especially as the Gemini Moon trines both Jupiter and Chiron and so may “say too much.”

I think this is a good description of my natal moon and sun!

Samhain

Posted in Libra, Saturn, Scorpio, Sun, Wheel of the Year on 10/31/2009 by nemain nyx

Whatever you believe, today is a good day to remember those who have passed on.

I know i’ve been silent lately, but i’m going through a lot of things that i’m sure will be popping up again and again throughout my Saturn Return. As you know, Saturn entered Libra and those of us with natal Saturn in this sign are beginning our Return.

I expected to process this more using this blog, but I’ve been feeling a bit bottled up. Maybe with some time after Saturn’s been on the threshold for a while I will be able to really talk about the feelings associated with this transit and the particular areas of effect.

But for now! I think we need to do some celebrating because it’s my favorite holiday! Remember those you miss dearly. Scorpio rules this season: blessings for your Samhain, blessings for your New Year!

Sun in Scorpio

Posted in Scorpio, Sun on 10/23/2009 by ananda silvermoon

Welcome to the sun in Scorpio! the fall is upon us, we have already felt this. but this morning, the sun slipped from Libra into Scorpio and the darker, moodier, more perceptive energy is already upon us. I know I can feel it.

Happy Scorpio! Use this time to plumb the depths of your subconscious, of your unconscious, of the collective unconscious and collective mind. Use this time to make sure your home and hearth are in order for the coming winter. Scorpio is the sign of “I want” or “I need” (as opposed to Taurus which is the sign of “I have”) and we can use this time to set our sights on what we need to survive the upcoming winter.

For all those with Saturn in Libra, starting to feel their Saturn returns; congratulations and welcome to your Saturn return sign. My Saturn is in Scorpio, but only barely; I think this means my Saturn return will sneak up and bite me in the ass, whereas if it were late Libra I would now have the next two and a half years to prepare.

Halloween is almost here! enjoy the thinning of the veil and use this opportunity to communicate with the world beyond.

Mercury and the Moon

This recent tweet from Nyx got me thinking. In it, she complains that Mercury (currently in Virgo) is squaring her natal Moon, in Gemini. Virgo and Gemini are both ruled by Mercury, but since they are both mutable signs, they are also square each other. Only one other planet besides Mercury gets to rule two signs (in modern times, that is), and that planet is Venus, ruler of Taurus and Libra. Taurus and Libra aren’t square, they aren’t in trine. They share neither an element nor a modality. They’re actually in quincunx. But, both being ruled by Venus, both Taurus and Libra have an easygoing harmony and can coexist pretty well.

I don’t get the same feeling from Gemini and Virgo. Gemini loves ideas, and collects ideas and thoughts and phrases. Virgo is highly critical and prefers to fact-check everything. So Virgo would probably get pretty annoyed at Gemini’s willingness to believe or repeat everything she hears, while Gemini would begin to think that Virgo was such a bore, and a square. Which is what the two are: square.

Signs in quincunx seem to get along in a strange way; in fact, I’ve heard and experienced myself that it is common in synastry. I know of two couples with a Scorpio man and a Gemini woman; both get along in an eerily similar, strange way. It works! One of those couples just passed their 55th wedding anniversary.

Personally, I have Mercury in sextile with my natal moon right now; Virgo-Scorpio. Astrolabe says, “Feelings and emotions are expressed now comfortably. Conversations with females are prominent and pleasant.” Hmm, is that so? Also note that Nyx’s and my moons are in quincunx, from Gemini to Scorpio. Which might have something to do with why we get along so well!

Also since Mercury is nearing its direct station, it is slowing down and these aspects are more noticeable. Fortunately, soon after that, the aspects will start to ease up. Myself, I’m looking forward to Neptune’s direct station, which isn’t until early November. I’m really looking forward to Neptune getting off of my natal Mars, and since the conjunction is applying when Neptune is retrograde, it’ll be much nicer when Neptune is direct.

Scorpio Moon, Repressed Trauma

Just a quick post here while this is fresh in my mind; I’ve been working on a post on the influence of Neptune lately but it turns out Neptune is very tricky and hard to get ahold of. I’m going to keep working on it and hopefully something will come out that makes sense.

In the meantime, it’s a Scorpio moon, which we all know we love here at LN. Combined with the Sun/Mercury/Saturn connjunction stuff going on, and some careful reading of Sue Thompkins’ Aspects book we’ve mentioned previously, I have managed to dig deep into some early, unremembered aspects of my life and uncovered some potential trauma in my early life. It fits, at least, and scarily well. So I’ve been dealing with all of the associated memories and emotions bubbling up to the surface.

Before I went to bed last night I set my alarm for 8:00 AM. I woke up this morning surprisingly well-rested, on my own accord, without the alarm going off. I got out of bed and looked at the clock: it was 11:30. AAAAGH! 3 and a half hours late. I managed to get in to work by noon… guess it’ll be a long day today.

Oh, and one more thing that I noticed yesterday: Pandora, asteroid #55, is all up in the triple conjunction going on in late Aquarius. Is someone opening up her box in the health care debate? Maybe a little?

Stupid Mercury, playing tricks on us, and messing with Saturn (getting in the way of our responsibilities). Stupid Scorpio Moon, making me plumb the depths of my unconscious. Stupid Pandora, opening up cans of worms all over everything.

Sorry. Today I am grumpy, tired, angry, hurt, hungry, and stressed out.

I just found this excellent article on Scorpio from Stellar Insights and had to share.
