Saturn affected Scorpio from November — October , bringing forth our attention to the facts of life, the unseen troubles that lie beneath murky waters. Between October and October , Scorpio saw the regular transits of the faster moving planets and was flanked on either side by Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Libra, both occupying signs in which they are not comfortable and Scorpio was simultaneously receiving the aspect of Rahu in Scorpio, continuing to amplify the themes of vulnerability in the face of crookedness, pollution, defamation and aggressive manipulation.
From October to early November , Jupiter's transit colored Scorpio, which brought about efforts to expand, cleanse and reform. These efforts were slowed and obstructed, however, as heavy and resistant Saturn has been occupying Jupiter's territory, tainting that positivity and expansion that we expect from Jupiter. Jupiter and Saturn have moved on from Scorpio for now and we will continue to see the inner planets transiting there in years to come.
The next major player to pass through Scorpio will be the south node of the Moon, Ketu, who is considered co-lord of Scorpio. This will be a strong placement from September — April Mercury will be passing swiftly through the dark waters of Scorpio from December 4 — 25, which is looking to be an interesting day astrologically.
Mercury exits Scorpio, joining the many planets in Sagittarius that will be involved in a solar eclipse event later that night as Mars exits Libra and enters Scorpio, all on Christmas Day. Mercury, flexible enough to get by in most situations, considers Scorpio neutral territory; Mercury will also be relatively left to his own devices to research, organize, shop, write poetry, lesson plans or whatever his current hobby.
This may reflect in our lives as perhaps being more efficient alone than with a team this month as the holiday glamour swirls in the marketplace. Mars, as co-ruler of Scorpio is literally in the marketplace, the sign of Libra, until December 25, suggesting that we may all thrive more during the nearly unavoidable melee of the holiday season by applying our energy through efficient channels.
On December 25, Mercury will move through the gandanta zone between Scorpio and Sagittarius, joining Jupiter, Ketu, Sun and Saturn for the grand finale leading into New Year's This is within the nakshatra Mrigashira, lorded by Mars, and spanning the transition between Taurus' bull and Gemini's twins. This is a powerful and positive nakshatra that supports creative actions, enjoyment and fulfillment.
This is a clear, still point that calls for us to pause and enjoy the beauty around us, including the earth itself, the relationships we foster, the foods we enjoy and the creative methods we have for aesthetically enhancing our lives. After the Moon begins to wane, it enters into Gemini, encountering Rahu, where things may become confused or obfuscated. Within the fortnight leading up to the Christmas solar eclipse, Venus moves to Capricorn, the Sun and Mercury join Saturn, Ketu and Jupiter in Sagittarius and Mars slips into Scorpio, creating a very interesting set up for the solar eclipse on December All of this shifting about as the Moon is waning may be challenging in the sense of keeping up the efficiency suggestions of Mars.
Therefore, it may be wise to use the clear, strong energy of the waxing Moon combined with high-powered Mercury in Scorpio during the first third of December to both wrap up and organize the projects, reassess future directions and goals, and make initial decisions for directions. After mid-December, we may all be pulled toward the events pulling us into the heart of the matter shown by the many planets gathering in Sagittarius. Venus is leading the charge, passing through the cluster of planets occupying Sagittarius and moving on to Saturn's earth sign, Capricorn on December 15 for a quick transit.
Looks like the planet who rules relationships and connections is heading to the hills for a nice winter retreat. Capricorn is an interesting place to be at this moment, with the planets gathering on the battlefield of Sagittarius in late December. Venus is a friend of Saturn, who rules the territory of Capricorn and can perhaps be the cool voice of diplomacy and restraint in what could be described as a planetary pressure cooker. This position of Venus certainly implies a short season of distance, space or evaluation when it comes to Venus related matters such as creativity, business, contracts, partnerships or relationships.
The Saturn-ruled environment expresses the need for diligence, patience and attention to all details, but is certainly supporting the creative process, even though it may slow things down temporarily. The Sun bravely crosses into Sagittarius on December 16, joining with both friends and enemies in Jupiter's fiery domain. Sagittarius is one of the four "dual" signs of the zodiac, of which Jupiter rules two and Mercury rules the other two. These dual signs are the places of change, transition, movement, education, continuance and growth. These five planets will remain grouped in Sagittarius through January 13, when Mercury moves out into Capricorn.
Fast moving Mercury will overtake the Sun on January 10 and jump ahead toward his friend Venus. We can think of the Sun as the king, as the government, as a symbol for leaders of any kind.

The planetary arch enemy of the Sun is Saturn, who symbolizes the subjects, the vulnerable, the weak or infirm. If it weren't for the people in need, how much simpler would the job of the governing bodies be? These two planets do create a balance challenge for each human being surrounding the concept of "self" that we also call the individual ego. This plays out on an individual basis as we journey through life on a quest for a healthy ego that allows us to define our unique individual imprint while averting us from the disaster of an overblown sense of self-importance or, in some cases, self-debasement.
This year, the annual meeting of Saturn and Sun occurs with much more spice. The path of destruction that was wrought by the gouging plow action of the Saturn-Ketu conjunction through the summer months has become the trench in which we will see this year's meeting of Saturn and Sun, which occurs exactly as the Sun exits Sagittarius on January The addition of Ketu, Jupiter and Mercury to this mix, especially in Jupiter's territory, could signal a time of reckoning in the realm of personal responsibility. The weakness, corruption and decay revealed throughout the summer is begging to be broken apart, cleansed and transmuted; if that has not already begun after possibly painful breakups, disappointments or other means of creating separation, be ready for things to move, ready or not.
We are coming to a time where the desires of the individual will need to be balanced and integrated with the needs of the collective. Some will gain and some will lose, but a new point of balance is in the works. Where the Sun travels, light comes into dark corners and the pests that hide in the cracks will be forced out of their comfort zones. While the Sun and Saturn are going head-to-head, Jupiter presides as the judge, Mercury is present to witness and record while Ketu perennially is present to break apart the illusion of material entrapment.
However this plays out on a collective level or on an individual basis, we may be forced to accept responsibility for how we have contributed to the corruption that so readily repulses us. As Mercury moves out of Scorpio on December 25, Mars moves in, which creates a very interesting shape in the South Indian chart style.
This shape holds through mid-January and you can see it in the graphic below that depicts the annular solar eclipse on Christmas.
Mercury enters Scorpio on December 5, 12222, 10:34:15
The shape reminds me of an arrow, in which the planet Rahu is the fletching, the grouping of planets in Sagittarius is the arrow's tip and Venus and Mars flanking either side of the grouping of planets are the barbs of the arrows. While there may not be ancient astrological meaning to this configuration per se, the visual does pull into mind the symbol of Sagittarius, which is an arrow, a symbol that is also associated with a few of the nakshatras.
Mars in Scorpio is acting as a backup energy or support system for the planets gathered under the spotlight in Sagittarius, just as Venus in Capricorn is creating a supportive energy on the other side. The pressure cooker environment caused by the combination of planets therein at the moment is being managed by Mars on one side and Venus on the other; both are well placed and could be the saving grace for the current times. Even after the critical moment passes, Mars will be remaining in his own sign of Scorpio through the first week of February.
This may be an indication of a period of focused effort, reorganization or accounting of resources while bravely facing problems that require us to dig deep and stand strong. Depending upon your whereabouts this annular solar eclipse will either occur on December 25 or 26 and it will either be visible or not. In US Mountain time zone, the eclipse happens at around pm, which means that we couldn't see the eclipse of the Sun as it is below the horizon.
The path of eclipse visibility runs through Saudi Arabia, South India and Indonesia, but eclipses tend to make a mark even on regions that may not be witnessing the eclipse. In this case we are having a solar eclipse, which happens during a new Moon, when the Moon passes in front of the Sun from the Earth's perspective, temporarily obscuring the sunlight. These three planets make up the group of the light-giving, positive, sattwic planets. They are also sitting in the nakshatra Mula, lorded by the planet Ketu and the goddess of destruction, Nirriti. And they are surrounded!
Ketu's energy is known to block or obstruct materially but to liberate spiritually, so depending upon one's desires, this could be favorable or utterly frustrating. In the early degrees of Sagittarius is energetic Mercury, our source of exchanges, communication, learning, markets, somewhat outside the orb of the eclipse shadow but close enough to be included in the equation.
In the late degrees of Sagittarius sits Saturn, causing pressure and urging detachment, preparing to shift signs. The idea behind eclipses is that a shadow descends upon that which we count on to light our way. This obstruction forces us inward, to draw upon our inner resources to calm and guide us through darkness and difficulty. Romance gets a big boost in May, when Venus arrives in Taurus — this is a time for kittens and rainbows and poetry, all sweet-nothings and intimate looks.
Watch out for a major communications mix-up between you and your lover in July, however, when Mars squares up to Uranus and one or both of you leaps to the wrong conclusion. For single Taureans, late August looks set to be highly memorable, with both Venus and Mars arriving in your dating zone within days of one another.
Any relationship which starts at that time is likely to be passionate and deep, albeit not necessarily long-lasting. On November 11th, a rare transit of Mercury across the visible face of the Sun occurs while Mercury is retrograde in your love zone. Remember why you are together and keep talking, no matter what. Your working life appears quite stable in , with few major astrological indicators of change. The arrival of Uranus into Taurus in March does shake up your attitudes, but this is more likely to be a change of your approach at work rather than a change of work itself.

Early in March, Venus shifts into your career zone, so you may want to make your working conditions more comfortable. At the end of March, ambitious Mars enters your money zone, so we can expect to see you hustling hard this northern spring, seeking a better salary or ways to otherwise expand your income.

Spiritual and philosophical vibes swirl around you throughout the year, allowing for much spiritual and personal growth — however, these vibes can be quite vague, so it will be easy for you to lose your way at times.

Fortunately, the planets line up to assist you with this.
