Moon in Scorpio and the Naughty Money Man


Scorpio is associated with Secrets. Right now the moon is in Scorpio and it opposed the conjunction of Venus and Mercury in Taurus last night. What secrets have been revealed we might ask. Scorpio is also associated with sex, the sexual organs. That is because it is the natural ruler of the 8th house which is where birth and death, and deeply compulsive events of obsession occur. A person with many planets in the 8th house will be obsessive. We can look at this and say, be wary of obsessive behavior during moon in Scorpio.

Now the head of the International Monetary Fund, was revealed to be a sexual predator last night. This is amazing. Venus has entered her dignity, meaning she wants to behave well. Venus in Taurus is going to be a good time for women. Because Venus rules young women, and she will help them when she is in Taurus. Likewise Mercury Rules Finance. Remember I said they are conjunct right now. Lets Add that together, Money and trade and women. What do we get…we get the IMF leader, Dominique Strauss-Kahn caught in a sexual scandal with young women. He was abusive, not just relating to them. So the gods are cleaning up the money here, removing the bad predator.

What does this have to do with Moon in Scorpio. In the beginning we said Scorpio has to do with secrets, right now the Moon is approaching full so it will be  the revelation of secrets. The Moon translates the energy of the stars, it is when the moon aspects that  it creates action in our world. The Moon revealed secrets about money and young women.  Venus which rules Money, also cleaned up its act in the process.

DeepWater Horizon is deep Pluto Capricorn symbolism.

a most beautiful Yin Yang, from a most tragic event, as we try to learn balance from the earth.

On earth day a small tragedy occurred in the Gulf of Mexico. Deepwater Horizon exploded from a gas and oil blow back, killing 11 men. The accident was a furious response from the planetary gods to an amazing act of Man’s hubris. The full effects of this tragedy are becoming apparent in just the last few days, estimates are now that by the time the oil flow from the well peaks it could be leaking as much oil into the Gulf of Mexico as the Exxon Valdez did, every two days.

Which of the planetary god’s had there hand in this? First we always look to the Moon. At the time of the explosion, around 10 pm on April 20th, the Moon was in the ninth mansion known Al Tarf, or glance of the lions eye. This mansion has the following influence on events that occur during its domain: Divine Wrath, dis-empowerment, frustration, and misfortune. This influence was in the 8th house, the house of death and destruction during the time of the explosion. The Moon was in Cancer indicating an ocean disaster, conjunct the South Node, making the malefic effect much worse.

Mars, the God  of fire and explosions, had a hand ind taking down Deepwater Horizon, it was his day and hour that the explosion occurred, thus he was super empowered. Mars was square retrograde Mercury. Mercury the trickster God had a hand in this, we can gather from this that computer failures and mechanical failures caused the safety systems to not function properly. Jupiter in Pisces had a hand in this, Jupiter is conjuncting Uranus, and remember whenever Jupiter gets involved, it is going to be big!

The sun was Trine Pluto in Capricorn, Illuminating the nature of Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is the depths and hidden, Capricorn buries it in the deep below the earth. Pluto is a transpersonal planet, this means it does not take into account the individual in its actions, its actions effect the world as a whole. Man thinks that he can control and use the toxic resources of the earth without destruction, but Pluto in Capricorns nature be will to destroy the structures and infrastructures of industry and business. It signifies upheaval and power of the earth, and facing the reality of our limitations as humans. Likewise Capricorn represent fossil…that which is ancient, and Pluto represents deep, hidden matters of power. We will probably see more incidents of this type, and more reliance on Fossil fuels for the next 13 years. Not until Pluto enters Aquarius will the new energy technologies become more prevalent than the old fossil ones. IF that is the case and if we are going to be masters of the ecosystem, we must do so with Capricorns integrity and caution, not the haste and deception that BP used to push the drilling proposal through the MMS, stating, “risk of an unmanageable accident is almost negligible.”

Perhaps the lesson from the event is to be more humble.

Mercury Retrograde May 2009

After many months of not getting to this blog, I have decided to take the opportunity of Mercury Retrograde to launch it. That may sound counter intuitive, but that is what Mercury Retrograde is really about anyways! Mercury has the highest eccentricity of orbit of all the planets in the solar system. Retrograde means going against what the tribe thinks is normal. Retrograde also means redoing things. I have now rewritten this blog 6 times during the mercury retrograde cycle.

I was born with Mercury Retrograde combusting the Sun, so it is like a native feeling for me. Communications become confused, electronics and vehicles break down, cleat thinking becomes a challenge. That is what a mercury retrograde native is used to. It feels like home. To be born with Mercury retrograde means that your ability to communicate and think is different than mainstream society. It means that you will have a heightened sense of intuition. It also means that more often than not, you will put your foot in your mouth.

What to do, if it is native, or if you are just experiencing its effects temporarily until the end of the month, the answer is the same. Slow down, become more thorough, take the time to revisit old ideas and start putting them into action. An individual with Mercury Retrograde must become very conscious of how they communicate, for they are apt to be misunderstood. This is how to make use of Mercury Retrograde.

I suppose I should put in the old adage and say don’t buy cars or electronics, or sign large contracts while Mercury is retrograde. So cheers to all of you! Be eccentric and enjoy the Retro Cocktail and Revisit some old ideas! Mercury will be retrograde until the June 1st..
