Scorpios everywhere are lamenting because with Venus in your sign it should/em> be a time of great happiness, yet those Plutonic events are interfering with your joy. So what gives, you ask? When Pluto rules, you should know by now, you’re subjected to rip tides that are designed to take you to new horizons, but you rarely let yourself be taken. What gives is supposed to be you. Right here, right now. Tell yourself that whatever is going on is exactly what the universe ordered, instead of resisting it. Let it be and wrap your arms around it. If you don’t’ think you can, all the more reason to do so. Pluto squared that full Moon last week. The kind of growth available to you now is staggering and it won’t come again.

Take this wave… it has your name written all over it.

Translating poetry

“Translating poetry is like making jewelry. Every word counts, and each sparkles with so many facets. Translating prose is like sculpting: get the shape and the lines right, then polish the seams later.” James Nolan


I’m going to wrinkle this word,
I’m going to twist it,
it is much too flat
it is as if a great dog or great river
had passed its tongue or water over it
during many years.

I want that in the word
the roughness is seen
the iron salt
The de-fanged strength
of the land,
the blood
of those who have spoken and those who have not spoken.

I want to see the thirst
Inside the syllables
I want to touch the fire
in the sound:
I want to feel the darkness
of the cry. I want
words as rough
as virgin rocks.


It’s tequila

It’s tequila, seen at over 1000x magnification. Florida State University research scientist Michael Davidson has made a project out of creating micrographs of booze at intense magnification levels, which produce images that look like they’re out of a bad acid trip. To make a micrograph, a drink is crystallized on a lab slide, and then a polarized light is passed through the crystal. Instant kaleidoscope. And no two drinks look alike. You wouldn’t believe what comes out of vodka

scorpio weekly

You’ve been looking for inspiration for a long time now and provided you’re not too preconceived or riveted to a particular outcome, this is the week you’ve been waiting for. Revelation after revelation comes to you now, like waves pouring into the shore in a major storm. Lightning bolts appear everywhere, offering insights and clarity that’s never been available to you before. The next two weeks are meant for exploring all the possibilities that show up at this time. If you’re open to every path as the week begins, you’re about to feel as though your limo has arrived. The Full Moon on Thursday brings you to a new level of work and service, and you’re off on the next chapter of your career.

Know that from October 8th to November 17th you’ll be exploring much more deeply the path you choose to take.

Pluto goes direct on Tuesday in your house of communication and asks you to speak your Truth despite the fact that you might prefer some more time in your famous cave of privacy. You know it’s time to start speaking up though. The good news is that Mars moves into your sign, also on Tuesday, and your two rulers spend this entire week forming a very productive, very comfortable aspect to one another. What this means is that no matter how much you want to stay out of the limelight right now, you’ll be singing quite a different tune by the weekend. This could be because certain events take place that touch your heart and draw you out. An important friend is speaking your language and making you smile. There’s no better way to get you going.

One good conversation gets your creativity flowing.

quote #2

I had been my whole life a bell, and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck.
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

scorpio weekly

You’re ready for certain situations to shift, and you’ve had plenty of time to observe your options and make some important decisions regarding the way you your life to go. Mercury has been retrograding in your house of friends and colleagues all summer, making the weaknesses in your support structure obvious and then helping you to reinforce those less than desirable links in your chain of self-command. You’ve learned and you’ve made some important decisions. Now Mercury goes direct, while the New Moon takes place in this same arena of support systems, and you’re about to find out how your choices have helped to strengthen your position. Venus enters your own sign on Monday, promising to help you feel better than you have for some time. Venus will retrograde in your sign in a few weeks.

You can relax and take your time now.

Listen for messages from friends, colleagues, even the angels this week, because Mercury, the Great Messenger, comes together with Sun to define his current retrograde cycle, and the information you receive is likely to help you understand the deepest, innermost issues you’ve been grappling with all year. That’s a big statement, but it’s true. If you allow yourself to hear the messages that are making their way to you now, you will come to understand the real reasons for your fears. This understanding can ultimately release you from the chains that keep you stuck in the places you’ve grown so tired of. The Truth is, you’re not afraid of failure, you’re afraid of your unbridled power. The clarity you gain this week can help you to embrace your empowered self in much gentler, more comfortable ways.

Let the Light shine in and you’re free.
