As the numbers continue to grow well into the thousands I think we can safely assume that the American “Spring” has sprung. The first official statement of the protestors in Zuccotti Park in NYC was accepted by the General Assembly on September 29th (see the statement here: Declaration of the Occupation in New York City). Disgust can be a strong motivating force, especially when justice is on your side.

Steve Jobs’ passing last week is a strong reminder to embrace the authentic and find the way to live with your inner passions and, yes, as is so often quoted, “shrug off dogma.” Living a life whose foundational base is built on fitting in and living up to family and societal expectations is draining – for the mind, heart, frequently the body, and the Soul. He is an icon for this time of individuation and truth.

Where do your personal truth, passion, and authenticity lie?  Inner peace and the expanding energy of love are part of this equation too. Many are in this stage of inner exploration, pondering, and experimentation. The inner litmus test is what feels powerful, truthful, and loving for you.

Two weeks ago I was preparing for a client call and discovered I had inadvertently turned on my digital recorder prior to the client session – I discovered my error and turned it off. When I played the mistaken recording back I heard a man’s voice on the recording very clearly repeating the word “hurdle, hurdle.” There was no one else in the room with me – well, not that I could “see” anyway when I had accidentally turned my recorder on that morning.

This is an apt reminder as we engage with the Scorpionic energies that those veils, which seemingly divide us from Source, spirit, and angelic energies, are thinner than we think. Gary Zukov calls it the multi-sensory, which is engaging with our inner senses and remembering who we are – divine and loving creators connected with energy that is constantly flowing. This energy is ours to use and align with when we are awake and aware.

Mercury moved into Scorpio (with Venus) on the 13th. The energies of communication shifted from the outwardly relationship-oriented to the hidden, intuitive, possessive, and, for some, suspicious. Eros (Cupid) the asteroid representing desire, lust, sex, passion, and creativity eased into Cancer on the 11th where the embers burn nurturing hot until mid-November. Over the weekend Mercury meets with Pluto, providing problem solving acumen, insights, and the potential for positive financial planning and movement.

ARIES: The asteroid Eros moved into Cancer on the 11th (and will stay there through mid-November) in the area signifying your home and whom you call “family.” Eros or “Cupid” transits point to expressions of sexuality and creativity and when in Cancer display a nurturing and caring connection with partners. Planets are also gathering in the stimulating 8th house of your chart, suggesting deeper connections with your passions and desires. Money and contracts are active over the weekend as Mercury makes contact with Pluto and then Jupiter. Fall Written Report for Aries - $10.99

GEMINI: Your passions are high regarding the things you own, your talents, sexual self-esteem, and money earnings.

CANCER: Hey lover boys and girls! You are oozing sex appeal through mid-November while Eros transits your sign.

AQUARIUS: As Venus and Mercury take up residence in your outer life it’s a good time to show ‘em what ya’ got. You can attract benefactors and influence people to see your way of thinking since you are extra charming and articulate. The Sun will soon join this duo, further lighting your path and providing you with well-deserved praise and growing confidence. Eros in Cancer hints at passionate displays with your work, with a co-worker, and within your sense of physical appeal. Fall Written Report for Aquarius - $10.99
