At the astrological Samhain, 7th November, the Spirit of the life-giving Sun is renewed at 15 degrees of Scorpio, as consciousness rises like the Phoenix from the ‘Via Combusta’, the fiery path, having burnt to ashes all that is no longer necessary, in order to move forward (to the next Solar marker, Winter Solstice 21st).
The Sun is also now conjunct karmic Saturn, accenting that practice
makes perfect, especially in regard to difficult and challenging tasks
that require focus and experience. The trick is to knuckle down, take
responsibility seriously, and not get despondent when faced with
limitations and obstacles; because missions undertaken now bring great
rewards when successful – it’s a hard job, but somebody has to do it.
On the plus side, friendly Venus just entered Capricorn, (Saturn’s
sign) where she will stay until early March. This lengthy sojourn is due
to her retrograde. And while this is considered a sobering position for
the Love Goddess, at least it provides the opportunity to love one’s work, no matter how tough it may be.
Like a hopeful Phoenix reborn from flames, shine on beloved friends __/\__ ☼✶•*¨*•.¸¸✶
