Keep it simple says the Sun in Taurus. But it's actually complicated says the total lunar eclipse in Scorpio. Such is the internal conversation you are likely to have on Sunday the 15th as the week begins.
Eclipse season is in full swing now and with this full Moon we have an opportunity for release, for letting go, of something either tangible or intangible, to lighten the load. To detox and run cleaner.
Scorpio rules poisons so if you find yourself overcome by illness, know that you are simply purging.
Depending on where you are in the world, this whopper eclipse happens either on Sunday evening or early Monday morning, but eclipse cycles are more wave-like and what is coming to light now will develop on into 2023. What began around April 30th is peaking at this full Moon but resonates forward. Make note in your journal what's surfacing.
The fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, whether Sun, Moon or Ascendant, will be most strongly touched by this complex portal. You may walk through a doorway and find yourself in a totally different land.
It's quantum leap time!
Both Venus and Jupiter have already moved into Aries, the realm of Mars. The warrior is still in Pisces but will ingress into Aries, its home sign, next week. So Venutian things...love, desire, beautiful things...heat up now and Jupiter not only supports but amplifies this and quickly!
Enjoy Aphrodite's pleasures, of course, but watch any tendency to over-indulge. Action will happen and sometimes we learn best through trial and error. That's cool.
Mercury went retrograde last week while I was running a fever and had to sit in my comfy chair and do nothing but reflect.
This is standard fare for Mercury retrograde so whatever actions you take now, there will likely be some revisions needed down the line. Just put that into your calculations.
On the 17th, the conjoining of Mars and Neptune will take us into misty realms, confusing matters. It will be hard to see clearly the best way forward.
It may be wise to wait till the fog lifts on the 24th when Mars ingresses into Aries to make any significant moves.
Everything will be getting faster and louder as the wandering planets move from watery Pisces to fiery Aries. This is like " rising out of the primordial sea and growing ram's horns" as astrologer Austin Coppock puts it.
It's a totally new approach, so grab you hat and stand ready in the starting gate. A new solar cycle is upon us!
