A NEW MOON will occur on Sunday, October 30th, 2016, at 10:38 AM PDT.
A new lunar cycle begins with a New Moon in Scorpio. This cycle presents a good time to commit to personal goals that portray the positive sides of Scorpio. Since this is the last New Moon before election-day, I encourage you to set your intentions this Sunday on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Focus you attention on your intention!
A New Moon in Scorpio brings out intense feelings; good or bad, right or wrong. This lunation is a time when we can focus on not only being passionate about things but to dig deep and get to the bottom of the 8th house issues at hand. Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our deeper, Plutonian side. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control or uneasy, so we can transform. This New Moon cycle is also an opportunity to explore within and find what leads us to engage in self-destructive behaviors. This cycle represents an opportunity to take out our personal trash–material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, if we use it correctly, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives and commit to those changes.
Scorpio teaches us not to accept everything we are told as gospel. As you observe your behavior as well as the people in your life, learn the difference between intention and agenda. During this New Moon do everything with conviction and focus on quality over quantity. If there is a project or problem that needs addressing, this is the time to commit to it. The Scorpio New Moon evokes a sense of purpose in us.
What intention are you setting this Sunday? If you would like to know more about your chart and how the Scorpio New Moon affects you, please contact me for a personal consultation.

It's not a good time to “shoot your mouth off”, make promises you can’t keep, or accusations you can’t prove.

Planetary Positions That Affect the Upcoming Election
Part 2, Saturn in Sagittarius
Last week I wrote about the political mud-slinging and childish behavior.
Now that all mud has been used, I’m waiting for one the candidates to respond with “Sticks and stone…” Seriously?
Let’s look at how Saturn will affect the outcome of the election. Saturn rules the tenth house and represents reality, focus, karma, obstacles, contraction, government, big business and public life.
Saturn went into the sign of Sagittarius from December 23, 2014 to June 14, 2015; and then finishes up its transit from September 17, 2015 to December 20, 2017.
When Saturn is in the sign of the archer we tend to have a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, we prevent ourselves from appreciating others’ viewpoints and opinions. We can more rigid, dogmatic and close minded. We take your own political beliefs and philosophies too seriously.
This is why followers of both candidates are so adamantly opposed to the other side, and there is so much religious persecution globally.
Saturn demands truth wherever it is in one’s chart and the responsibilities that go with attaining what we crave. With Saturn here, a desire to gain control is present, and when we see anyone of power attempt to control the people through the information they share with them, or through belief systems by imposing their ideas on others, it is met with stiff opposition. This behavior is something that should be avoided now because it will not be rewarded. The more negative expressions of the sign of Sagittarius, such as excess and irresponsibility, are things that won’t work for them now.
These become glaring under Saturn’s parental eye. In some manner, they are bound to see that there is a big price to pay for these behaviors, or it will become extremely clear that they have lost time, energy, and happiness with excessive and irresponsible behavior. Saturn in Sagittarius is not a good time to “shoot your mouth off” or make promises you can’t keep or accusations you can’t prove.
In Trump’s chart Saturn is in his fourth house until July of 2018, bringing private issues public. It is also karma with women. The recent exposure that came out about his opinions about women has just started. There is much more to be revealed.
In Clinton’s chart Saturn is in her sixth house until mid-December 2017, which means her health needs serious attention and changes required. The tough part about Saturn in the sixth house is it brings out a workaholic approach which does not server her health currently.
Given the position of Saturn in their charts and the duration in the respective houses, I believe both of them will regret being elected to the presidency. They will face circumstances that reveal truths that cannot be hidden and opposition to their platforms. Stay tuned!

Planetary Positions That Affect the Upcoming Election
Part 1, Mars in Capricorn
We have watched the presidential candidates mudsling like children in a sandbox, now they are throwing everything but the kitchen sink. If not careful, they may throw the baby out with the bath water. Ridiculous, yes?
What is driving this? Of course good old fashioned ego.
Why have the personal attacks increased? The first is Mars in the sign of Capricorn.
Mars is in Capricorn from September 27-November 9; the day after the election. Mars in Capricorn is deliberate, persistent energy. We should consider the future and the consequences before taking action during this cycle. Our energy is reliable and faithful. We are slow to anger but can seethe like a volcano, and can be quite cold if we are frustrated. The shadow side of Mars in Capricorn is rigidity. Mars is the god of war, it is unabated energy. Capricorn rules the tenth house, the area of success, fame, career, big business and government. Capricorn is all the about the bottom-line and asks “What’s in it for me?”
When Mars is in Capricorn people are serious about their ambitions, disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious in pursuing their objectives. Drive and energy are directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. We also strive to be in a position of authority and social influence and enjoy being the person who is in command. During this period we are hard-working and capable of forgoing immediate comfort in order to achieve your long-range goals. We can easily become workaholics and are very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.
What can cost a candidate the election during Mars in Capricorn?
Not being realistic and pragmatic, or having an excellent, fact based strategy. Success is attained by formulating a conservative and workable plan and following through with it. This is not a good time to be a gambler when it comes to attaining a huge goal such as the presidency. Each candidate must depend on their own efforts and perseverance rather than luck. Mars in Capricorn brings out the shrewdness and calls for instinct in big business or organizational management.
Since this goes until the day after the election, the losing candidate will not admit defeat. It will look like the following scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:
Black Knight: Have at you!
Arthur: You are indeed brave, sir knight, but the fight is mine.
Black Knight: Oh, had enough eh?
Arthur: Look, you stupid bastard. You’ve got no arms left!
Black Knight: Yes I have.
Black Knight: Just a flesh wound!
My apologies to the Arthurian legend and the Python troupe for comparing them to the presidential candidates.
