Mercury just arrived in Scorpio yesterday, and already he's making deals, the first of which is with the big daddy of the zodiac, jolly Jupiter.

Before we had the scientific tools to discover that an ice age had changed our planet, it was taught in school that dinosaurs died because mammals came along and ate their food.

In terms of emotion, the impact can be entirely incommensurate with the inciting incident. In terms of planets, you just can't tell how things will be received and interpreted, considering the opposition of Mercury and Uranus.
Ambition can be overrated. We all know what happened to poor Icarus, but combustion isn't the only consequence of flying too close to the sun. Consider the bird who flies so high that no one can hear her song. All in all, a little humility will go a long way, especially now as Venus moves into diplomatic, charming and cooperative Libra.

The tall trees know the secret. Sometimes the only way to grow up is to root down. Of course, home is also different for each person.

For over a year, Jupiter, the planet of abundance and good fortune, has traveled through Libra, the realm of relationships. As he shifts into Scorpio the jolly king will sober up a bit, as Scorpio energy is no joke. This is the realm of life, death and taxes and the soulful agent of change.

The sun, Mercury and Pluto square off in an epic power struggle. The most difficult opponent in the skirmish for control is the opponent within. Yet we can usually pin the blame on those difficult people in our lives who embody the conflict so well. We even fool ourselves into believing they are the real problem.

You don't have to believe in witches and magic to know that words have power and that people can essentially cast spells on one another with what they say. As Venus moves away from Mars and into a difficult arrangement with Saturn, relationships will be vulnerable to gossip and the ill opinions of others. Steer clear. Speak only kindness.

This is the ramp-up to the harvest moon. Once you get some momentum going the hard things become easy. Momentum can be dangerous, too, as speed can have an adverse effect on awareness and control. So cherish the hard, slow part of the process for what it allows you to see, and the fast-blur part of the process for where it takes you.
