Sun in Scorpio ~ October 23 to November 21, 2009

Bookmark and Share

The Sun leaves the social sign of Libra for the more introspective Scorpio on October 23 at 2:43 a.m. (ET), where he remains through November 21. Those of us who are naturally a water Sun sign or whose birth charts are heavily influenced by water may find the Sun’s transit in Scorpio a little more familiar and with our intuition on hyperdrive :-)

Air and Earth Sun signs, don’t try to find logic when there seems none. Just practice listening to that inner voice of yours...yes, it's there. We all have it. Some of us just get more practice than others. Clarity and reassurance may be more likely found through insight versus reason or tangible proof during the Sun’s transit in Scorpio.

The Sun represents our ego, conscious will, and potential which includes our hidden potential that is inherent but undiscovered. In Libra, the Sun’s focus is on our relationships, interactions, and balancing the needs/desires of the self with that of another’s/others. In Scorpio, the Sun also illuminates our relationships but through a in depth understanding of them. After all, Scorpios are all about what lies beneath the surface and not just satisfying the five senses. They must get to the core which lies beneath the layers. Scorpios, after all, are the investigators/researchers of the zodiac. Driven by their unending curiosity coupled with their strong intuition, they must have complete understanding of people, situations, or things; anything less is unacceptable.

The Sun’s transit in Scorpio urges us to dig deeper. Seek the source instead of just identifying the symptoms. It is through this deeper, fuller understanding that allows us to push through, become empowered, and then transformed. What in our self do we need a transformation in? The way we think? Interact? Trust?

While the Sun is in Scorpio, he will make alignments with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • October 24 ~ Sun sextile Pluto. Intensity. Need for control. Tap into hidden, natural talents/abilities. Personal empowerment gained through awareness and wholehearted acceptance of truths, even if they are painful or harsh or not what's expected.
  • October 29 ~ Sun square Mars. Willful determination can still produce intended results if stubbornness is taken out of the equation. Otherwise, you're just fighting for the sake of fighting. Don't lose sight of the objective. Agree to disagree if that is what will achieve the desired outcome.
  • November 5 ~ Sun conjunct Mercury. Penetrating mind. Strong ability for focus. Verbal interactions may be heavier, more intense than the usual banter. Curiosity peaks and requires to be satisfied.
  • November 2 ~ Full Moon in Taurus at 2:14 p.m. (EST)
  • November 10 ~ Sun square Jupiter. Dream big, yes. Just keep one foot rooted on the ground. With Mercury and Chiron also square, it's easy to see the obstacles to the big dream. Let this "ceiling" give us the foresight of what limitations or hurdles we may have to work around or jump over in order to continue toward the goal.
  • November 13 ~ Sun square Chiron. Ouch. Deep cuts. Feel like salt on your open wounds? Double ouch! Awareness is key that leads to acceptance so healing can begin. Help another if your aid is requested, but no judging.
  • November 14 ~ Sun trine Uranus. Opportunities from unlikely places/sources. Expect the unexpected. It's ok to have an abrupt change of mind or feel the need to break away and venture on your own.
  • November 15 ~ Sun square Neptune. Avoid getting lost in your head/dreams/visions. Life is about living ... and sometimes, living out loud! Solitude may be necessary now, just make sure you're actually spending quality time alone and not hiding or escaping.
  • November 16 ~ New Moon in Scorpio at 2:14 p.m. (EST)

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
