Don’t Judge a Book…

Hello Everyone!

I hope you’re doing well, and capitalizing on Pluto’s assistance with Venus and the Sun (Post: Pluto Creates Ideal Future..). Pluto is an outer planet that ultimately has the power to affect groups on a generational level, but don’t underestimate Pluto’s ability to shape the lives of individuals in the short term. Think about it like this; The way your life is now in 2022 will be completely different from what it will be like in 2050, but it’s the events and experiences that happen along the way that create that future change. You don’t wake up 30 years from and life is different. That’s why it’s important to make the the most out of each and every day!

The Moon tonight will be full and she’ll be in the astrological sign of Taurus. This a time of culmination, which began at the October 25th new moon in Scorpio. That day was awesome. If you remember, the moon was new and the sun was just beginning his transit through Scorpio.

Right now, the 4th House Moon is pulling back hard against the oppositional forces of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in the 10th House, which is causing an issue right now between our careers and public image, and our lives at home. The Moon is trying so hard to get our attention refocused on matters that are near and dear to us and close to the heart over our pursuits for money and fame, and she’s not alone.

The amazing thing about this alignment is the Moon’s conjunction to Uranus, the planet or originality and sudden awakenings. Some how some way something at home is going to happen that forces us to stop and consider what the Moons is trying to tell us.

There’s nothing pretty about bulls, well, on the outside. They’re intimidating hairy beasts with big horns, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover. The bull is territorial and protective of what he loves. He’s warm and comforting. Astrologically, Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus.

Under the full moon this evening, think about the value you place on material possessions and the things that appeal to your senses. In our pursuit for money and power we sometimes lose sight of what matters most to us.

Have a great day!

Bulk Order Gate

I guess I have to accept this situation for what it is.

Fulton Books is basically asking me to trust them when they say Amazon purchased a bulk order of Smorgasbord A Collection of Thoughts Experiences and Stories (my first book) in 2021, and because of that, 4 out of 5 paperback sales through Amazon in 2022 were actually old sales that I was already paid for.

I guess I have to accept what Fulton Books tells me even though they have no proof, no receipt, and no record that this so called bulk order took place.

I guess I also have to accept that Ingram Content has the power to withhold information and report whatever number of sales they wish to produce.

In the future, I’m assuming anytime my sales are not reported accurately, and lets say I sell 1,000 books and Ingram Content decides to report 100, Fulton Books can just say it was a bulk order.

I’m trying so hard to move on from this, but the truth here is that I was robbed. And this isn’t about the money, we’re talking about the sale of 6 books and I’m getting paid for 2.

This is about honesty and integrity in the field self-publishing. At no point in this process has Ingram Content or Fulton Books produced money of their own. The financial risk here is only on my end-the author who wants to self-publish.

I know Ingram Content is probably not going to contact me, and Fulton Books is probably going to stick to their story even though they have no proof of what they’re telling me, but I would like to say this:

Ingram Content, you should be ashamed of yourself. As big of a company as you are, and with as much money as you make, you should’ve picked up the phone and reached out to either me or Fulton Books. You stole from me, and until you produce a detailed sales report showing Amazon’s purchase from 2021, you’ll never convince me of anything different.

Amazon: I contacted you through the information provided on my author account at least three times, and you never responded.

Fulton Books: You put the integrity of your business and the integrity of the self-publishing field in general on the line here. You have the power to get the necessary information from Ingram Content because you have the account with them, and you decided to put your head down and play innocent.

I spent thousands of dollars to have two books published with you, and I know for a fact that if you didn’t receive payment at any point during the publication process, you would’ve stopped the publication of my book. Well, the shoe is on the other foot now.

Until you have a way to prove the excuse for why you’re paying me for 2 sales instead of 6, you’re stealing from me. I will leave it at that.

Pluto Creates Ideal Future; but Enjoy the Moment!

Good evening. Here on the east coast of the United States it’s 8:32 PM. It’s dark outside, warm with a breeze, and the ground is covered with leaves.

It’s romantic, it’s spiritual, and it’s a sacred time of the year.

The astrological chart of the moment is showing Venus in a conjunction (4 degrees) with the Sun in Scorpio in the 5th House. Venus and the Sun are in trine with Pluto in Capricorn in the 8th House.

This is good on so many levels.

In the 8th House, we see issues concerning death and rebirth, regeneration, legacies and wills, and other peoples money and property.

In astrology, Pluto is known as the eliminator. He gets rid of anything and everything that no longer serves a purpose. Pluto is all about regeneration, he destroys in order to build back better and stronger. Pluto is also known as the detective. He likes to dig for truth and expose it for the world to see, and again, he does this for regeneration. If the truth will set us free, Pluto is going to find it and free us. He wants to destroy anything that’s holding us back.

The negative side of Pluto manifests in the form of wars, dictatorships, murder, and riots. He’s stirring up the pot. On the positive side, Pluto has the power to help us reach the highest levels and achieve major success.

Pluto’s trine to the Sun and Venus in the 5th House tells us what his purpose is here. The 5th House is about short term pleasure, and it involves art, things we pursue for the love of it, sex, drugs, and having children.

The Sun represents will power and life force, and Venus represents love and beauty. Scorpio, which is the 5th House here, is a very passionate and imaginative sign. Scorpio is emotional and intense. It’s about desire, and it’s governs both male and female genitalia.

What are you looking for? Fun? Pleasure? What you’re most passionate about?

In the 5th House, the Sun and Venus in Scorpio can lead us to the deepest darkest forms of pleasure and passion at a level most would consider forbidden or freak-like. Think about it. The life force (Sun) is combining with love (Venus) in Scorpio. It’s passionate lusty desires that touch the heart. It’s that sex that’s so dirty but feels so good. 😍

Pluto is going to eliminate anything in the 8th House that’s preventing pleasure in the 5th. In Capricorn, we see the method behind his madness. He’s not jumping right in. No way. He sees the sign, and he knows he’s dealing with complicated issues. Capricorn is going to help him approach his work step by step and little at a time.

Ground yourself. Take your time, be persistent and consistent, and the possibility to clear up an otherwise confusing 8th House will be possible. The result of all this will be a clear path for fun, pleasure, and pursuits of love.

And hopefully, when the dust settles, you’ll rise up with an awakened awareness knowing the truth about your real passions in life.

Death and rebirth aren’t always literally about dying and coming back to life, it could be, but symbolically, they represent endings and new beginnings, and that’s what this is about.

What you can expect based on the planets, signs, and houses that are involved here is definitely and ending to something. Possibly life, but hopefully not. It could be relationships, marriages, jobs, surgeries, and anything that ties you or bounds you to the other.

Weather they’re ultimately good or bad for us, endings are usually hard to deal with. We put time and effort in, and we get attached for whatever reasons. Sometimes, endings leave us in pain emotionally, physically, and mentally, but all that’s temporary and not to sound cold, but it’s apart of life.

When that storm ends and the water recedes, the new beginning will be one of gold. You will finally be free! The door will open for whatever you find pleasure in, and even though that’s only a small part of what’s in store, enjoy yourself.

In the long term (because the 5th House is opposite the 11th) there’s a rare opportunity here for you to live the life you were finally meant to live. It can be a life filled with love and beauty and passionate pursuits that satisfy your heart’s every desire.

For the rest of this weekend and the next two weeks, I want you to approach people and situations in a grounded, persistent, and consistent way. Remember, Pluto must clear the way first by resolving 8th House matters, and there’s no indication that Pluto’s negative side will manifest in your personal life, however, Pluto has tremendous power that can and will swing in the necessary direction.

Look for the truth in all matters, and investigate. You will have to go after what you want, but the luck of the trine is your side. By the 24th of November, the true meaning of Thanksgiving will be waiting for you at the table.

A Follow Up With Some Real News

To follow up on my last post; in my analysis of the astrological chart for Generation X, the alignment revealed a generation betrayed in the 6th House of health and service.

The issue I’m having with unemployment is a great example of this.

I was a teacher, and I put teachers in the same category as police officers, firemen, and other government workers because each job involves dealing with the public.

Let’s put rights and all that other stuff aside for the moment. In this country, there’s a huge drop off in public service. I just saw a video on Twitter of a nurse, a health care worker employed in some type old age home or senior care facility who was slapping the shit out of an elder woman living in the facility.

That person should be jailed, and banned from any job dealing with the public. Are you kidding me?

For reasons I’m not going to get into, paying and granting people the power to work with the public has created an attitude in employees now that some think they’re better, on higher ground, and superior to those they serve.

This has to change. Just because someone comes to you for help, you don’t have the right to beat them, threaten them, disrespect them, or treat them like a lower life form. In all fairness, if that’s how you want to get down, then I should quickly remind you that you’re the servant. Yes, you’re serving the public.

So, let’s not go there.

Health and service is important, it’s necessary, and we need people who are patient , stand-up, and honest.

The reason why I mentioned Generation X is because it’s our generation (1965-1980) that bears the burden of healing this Chiron wound in our astrological chart. Generation X is going to have to pave the way and right the wrongs when it comes to betrayal in health and service.

After the Kennedy assassination, Generation W put their heads down and went to work while the murder investigation was botched and the country was flooded with drugs. If Generation X does the same thing then where does that leave the Millennials?

Someone has to stand up.

Before I let this post go, I want to remind my audience about something. It’s posts like this and other issues I blog about that separates Nooz Buffet from other news sources.

This is real news and editors working for major newspaper publications will never print this type of material. And that’s what perpetuates the situation of people feeling powerless. Real issues, or issues people deal with on a daily basis are hushed until they become a major issue that can’t be ignored.

And even then, we don’t get the truth or the real reason why such huge issues manifest the way they do. What started it? What provoked it? Why did he/she do what they did?

Could someone have prevented the end result?

Alright everyone, have a great day! And remember something, it’s oaky to ask questions, and if you feel like something isn’t right or you’re not being treated right, speak up! If you don’t, don’t be mad at the people who do.

Just Trying to Correct the Problems

The incident that’s referred to as “insurrection,” the January 6th situation at the White House, is what happens when a democracy deteriorates into mob rule.

To put all the blame on Donald Trump for that, and to say he’s solely responsible, means that you don’t even understand the system of governance you were hired to govern in.

Almost every issue we have in this country stems from the abandonment of our Constitution and the Constitutional Republic it formed. I just Tweeted several hours ago about individuals in this country feeling powerless. The individual in this country is sovereign and free, and he has rights. The individual in America has more power then any group or agency, but you would never think that’s true by the way we’re treated.

Today, I waited on hold for unemployment to pick up the call. I waited on hold for almost two hours and while the “on-hold music played,” I went to CVS, the food store, came home, made lunch, got dressed, and I was on my way to work when someone from unemployment finally picked up.

That’s insane. We are hard working people who have lives, and personally, I don’t have the time to be waiting on hold like that-nor should I have to.

This goes back to what I just said about people feeling powerless. The people at unemployment should pick up the phone calls in a timely manner and that in itself would eliminate a lot of issues. What is this? We should feel lucky if unemployment even picks up the phone? NO. I know people who can claim benefits, but don’t because they’re that discouraged by the system!

If you work then you pay into the unemployment system. That’s not the governments money and they need to stop putting us in a position where we have to feel like we need to kiss their asses to collect our benefits.

Today, like I said, I waited on hold for almost two hours, and the woman ended up hanging up on me. I didn’t curse at her and I didn’t yell at her. I was asking her specific yes/no questions and she couldn’t handle it. If she wasn’t qualified to deal with the public then she should’ve passed the call on to a supervisor.

So, not only is the Pennsylvania unemployment system overreaching, but today, I was threatened and my first amendment rights were infringed upon.

I’m not going to stop until this issue is resolved, and in the mean time, someone needs to fix this unemployment system, and start hiring people who are qualified to deal with the public.

I’m on my own, and I realized that a long time ago, but that’s okay because I’m fucking real. I’m going to ask questions, I will make you explain something if I don’t understand it, and if my rights are being infringed upon I’m going to push back. If you can’t deal with people then find a job that doesn’t require you to deal with the public.

The Astrological Mind

When it comes to the mind in astrology, we think of the air signs; Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Of course, and why shouldn’t we? Air equals intellect.

Let’s go a little deeper though. From a psychological perspective, the subconscious mind or the unconscious is the part of the mind that’s not of focal awareness. If the mind was represented by an iceberg and split into two levels (like it is on Wikipedia) with one portion sitting below the water and the other portion above the water, the subconscious makes up the 90% portion below the water.

That’s a large portion of our mind operating outside of consciousness! The portion above the water, which is 10% of the iceberg, represents our fully aware, critically thinking, high-functioning everyday mind.

[After looking at the iceberg in this context, I couldn’t help but think. I always say and believed the answers we seek concerning out past could very well be located beneath the frozen ice in the Antarctic, but perhaps, they’re not buried under the ice. What if our memories have been frozen in time? What if when the ice melts eventually, the humans on earth will have a natural enlightenment, and all those questions we have will be answered naturally? In due time of course.]

So, our subconscious mind in astrology is represented by the Moon, and if the Moon is involved then we know Cancer has to be also somehow because the Moon rules Cancer, and the 4th House must be involved as well because the Moon and Cancer both live there.

The high-functioning conscious part of our mind has always been represented by the planet Mercury. Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo, and the 3rd and 6th houses. Mercury was and is known as the Messenger God, and Mercury represents communication and commerce amongst other things.

Mercury is fast in its orbit and never exceeds more than 28 degrees from the Sun-that’s where we get our high-function and focus from.

Since the ancient times Mercury has been known to man, but in 1781 man made another discovery. Uranus! Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, which means it operates at higher levels and from metaphysical perspective, in other dimensions.

Uranus is the genius of the Zodiac, and the planet that represents Astrology. He was the original sky God, and God of the Universe. Today, we know Uranus rules Aquarius in the 11th House.

Isn’t it interesting how this all works? Because Uranus was discovered just after the American Revolution, (1776) he represents electricity, and free thinking. Uranus is the planet of change and originality, and it symbolizes the element of surprise in our lives. It awakens and revolutionizes. Uranus represent that sudden flash of genius thought.

As time has moved forward from the days when humans were consciously aware of only Mercury, you could say our minds have changed and evolved as well. Well, the conscious portion anyway. It’s unbelievably interesting to see how the powers and characteristics of the heavenly bodies coincide with what’s being done here on earth.

As for the subconscious, I assume it will just keep taking inventory and jotting notes for us to explore at a later date, or maybe, when the ice melts and joins the rest of the sea.

Don’t you think it’s time that we had a subconscious upgrade?

I think it was Edgar Cayce that referred to the subconscious as a filing cabinet in which all information gets stored, and the funny thing is that we aren’t even aware of 99% of the stuff.

Photo by Adi K on Pexels.com

I proposed the Antarctic theory earlier in this article, but there’s something else, and in the process of explaining it, I’ll demonstrate how Uranus works.

Every time I hear the number 300, I think about the scene in the movie, 300 where the Spartans are overwhelmed and outnumbered by their opponent during a battle so they utilize a narrow entrance between two mountains as their front line for fighting. They chose it because their opponents could only enter a few men at a time, which solved Sparta’s problem of being outnumbered 10 to 1, or whatever the ratio was.

300, the number, and the funnel is what I take from this. The funnel because I imagine an upgrade to the subconscious would be “funnel-like.” Tons of information and memories in the beginning that slowly gets narrowed and more specific until we have exactly what we must retain.

When the year 2076 arrives it will be America’s 300-year anniversary! That’s right, 300 years since claiming our independence in 1776. Do you know what else happens in 2076? Sedna will reach its closest distance or point to our sun, which is called a perihelion.

I believe Sedna is a planet, even though astronomers will probably settle on dwarf planet, but when Sedna reaches its perihelion, it will do so outside the orbit of Pluto. When Sedna reaches its aphelion, which is its furthest distance from our sun, it goes all the way out, way past Neptune, and touches a place called the Oort Cloud.

Astronomers refer to that area in deep space past the orbits of Neptune and Pluto as a dark frozen sea. A dark frozen sea like Antarctica? Exactly.

So, here comes planet Sedna in its orbit, a goddess of the sea known as the Mother or Mistress of the Sea according to the Inuit mythology and takes on the form of a mermaid. Could this be the divine feminine we hear so much about the suppression of? Maybe, because when Sedna reaches her perihelion in 2076, it will be her first time back there since 9,386 B.C. or 11,408 years ago since her orbit takes 11,408 years!

If the feminine Moon represents the 90% of our subconscious that’s below the water, then Sedna must be the opposite tip of the iceberg as far as the subconscious is concerned. Who knows what Sedna will bring with her, and how we’ll be affected here on earth, but we’ll find out in 54 years.

Kanye West. Kanye has been in the news an awful lot lately, and I do agree with a lot of the stuff he’s talking about. After seeing sponsors and social media platforms cut ties with him, the deeper message to all this is evident. Now, I must say, Kanye has done a good job at maintaining his freedom and not allowing himself to be controlled by the powers that be, but what he’s showing us is that at certain levels when money and fame is involved, you’re expected to act a certain way and support certain things. When you don’t, well, you’ll lose sponsors and social media platforms will block you. It’s a shame. Howard Stern referred to him as Hitler, and I’d like to comment on that. I think Kanye is far far ahead in his thinking, and when you’re as far as he is, most people aren’t ready for what you’re talking about. He’s not wrong, he’s just really pushing the pace into future with some independent thinking, which causes people to either cling to what have and always known, or give it up and move forward. As far as the White Lives Matter t-shirts; I mean, I don’t really know. There’s a lot of white people who are really upset, which is comical to me, but I feel like until someone comes out with and All Lives Matter t-shirt, we’re still playing this white/black race thing. He refers to all people as human beings, a species of human beings, so to emphasize White Lives Matter is a little hypocritical.

Charleston White. 🀣 I don’t mean to laugh, but the range of responses he gets on social media is hilarious. If you want to talk about someone who has been speaking a lot of truth while turning the narrative on its head, it’s Charleston White. I get it, I understand the youngsters don’t like the ratting, and they don’t like having the cops called them, but he seems committed to making “the neighborhood” a safer place. He wants to take back his community, and that’s where we all need to start. Strong families, strong communities, and you know the rest. Like I said, he’s speaking a lot of truth, and it’s truth people need to hear, but of course, a lot of people don’t like hearing the truth. I think he’s doing a good thing and I think he makes sense. In order for people to move forward they must give up the past and distance themselves from the people who are chaining them to it.

Tonight, the moon is a waxing crescent illuminated at 10%. We just had a brand-new moon on Tuesday, October 25th in Scorpio, which partially eclipsed the sun. That means a new moon phase is now beginning and it coincided with the sun’s ingress into Scorpio. The moon is in Sagittarius this evening, and the mutable fire of Sag gives us that controlled rage so to speak. The energy is emotional, yet adaptable. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and home in the 9th House. The 9th house is the house of higher thinking and philosophy. It controls higher education and long-distance traveling. The moon here is stirring up the subconscious, and what comes to the surface is a new way of approaching things. Sometimes, despite the labor, and the continuous loss, we maintain our stubbornness. Sagittarius represents many things, but it’s a freedom loving and adventurous sign. Get out of your comfort zone and get going! Right now, while the moon is a waxing crescent, the energy is action oriented. If you’ve been thinking about taking a trip or applying to college, do it. If you’ve been stuck on something, take a break. Get out and enjoy the night air, I might be exactly what you need to return to the grind with fresh perspective.

The 2022 NCAA College football season has been exciting. Week 9 kicked off yesterday with the game between Virginia Tech and (24) N.C. State. N.C. State barely squeaked past the Hokies winning by one, 22-21. Tomorrow, (meaning Saturday because it’s 12:35 AM here) it’s the number two Buckeyes against the thirteenth ranked Nittany Lions, (9) Oklahoma State versus (22) Kansas State, top ranked Georgia is playing the unranked Gators, and the 7 o’clock game between (19) Kentucky and (3) Tennessee should be a good one. Clemson, TCU, Michigan, Ohio State, Georgia, and Tennessee are still undefeated!

Halloween this year falls on a Monday. As a kid still in school and young enough to dress up and go out to trick or treat for candy, I loved it when Halloween fell on Saturday. That meant mischief night was on Friday night, and you could dress up and go out for candy Saturday night. It was the best weekend! Well, not this year kids. October 31st is next Monday, and your mischief night is probably going to be called off early because you have school the next day. HaHa. πŸ˜‰

Ingram Content/Fulton Books; The BBB and the Back and Forth

Last night I decided to contact the Better Business Bureau, and I asked them to investigate why Ingram Content is not reporting my book sales from the beginning of this year to my publishing company, Fulton Books.

Fulton Books responded to me by email this morning, and this the back and forth email exchange between us.

I don’t understand why or how this has gotten to this level. It’s very simple. You self-publish with Fulton Books and Ingram Content handles all sales.

When your book is purchased, the sale registers first with Ingram Content, Ingram then, is supposed to update the sale with Fulton Books so the author can get paid.

I know of at least 3 sales for fact (Between March 5th and June 3rd, 2022) that were not updated-meaning Ingram Content did not report them to Fulton Books. I would like to know why, and I would like Fulton Books to contact Ingram Content for the answer.

We’ve been going back and forth since the summer on this issue.

Email 1:

Thu, Oct 27 at 10:31 AM

Hi Francis,

We already received your BBB complaint. We will respond appropriately through them as they require us to do so. You will get the same reports from us as you have received in the past. We have never treated you as a liar. We have repeatedly let you know the process of our reports and how Ingram reports them to us, but you are unsatisfied with our answers and treat us as the liars. We have been truthful with you since day one and will remain truthful with the BBB.

Please expect Fulton’s/BBB’s response within the BBB’s standard 15-day period.

Thank you.

Email 2: My response:

Thu, Oct 27 at 12:36 PM

Dear Support Staff:

My sales from the beginning of this year (March 5 to June 3rd 2022) are not updating on your Fulton Books sales report.  I asked you why that was during the summer and you told me it was because the sales were actually old and that Amazon purchased a bulk order in 2021.  

I asked to see some type of proof of sales, a receipt, or a sales report that shows that information and you still haven’t provided it.

I asked over and over again for you to contact Ingram Content and ask them why they’re not reporting my sales to you, and you still haven’t done that.

XXXXXX told me my amazon author account was a projection of possible future sales, when that was incorrect.Β  It’s an accurate description of paper back sales through Amazon and it updates weekly.Β  It’s not a sales projection chart.Β  It’s proof that my paperbacks have been selling.Β Β 

I sent you a snap shot of my author amazon sales page towards the end of the summer, and you asked me to send it again yesterday.  I work a full time job, I maintain a blog, and I write.  I don’t have the time to do things two and three times.  At some point you have to meet me half way.  I’ve been kind, fair, professional, and patient.

I didn’t know what else to do, so yes, I contacted the BBB to investigate.  

Again, my sales from the beginning of this year didn’t update on your site’s sales report, which means I won’t get paid for those sales.

How long is this going to go on for?  All I asked was for you to call Ingram Content and ask them why. 

Yesterday, I asked you for your name and you still haven’t provided it.  I don’t understand the secrecy.  It’s like you don’t listen to a word I’m saying, you let me talk and your response is never specific.  You keep reading the script over and over and telling me what I already know.  

At some point you have to respond directly to what’s being asked.  After all the money I’ve spent with Fulton Books, I expect to be treated fairly and dealt with accordingly.

Again, Please call Ingram Content and ask them why they aren’t providing you with an updated report of my book sales.  You’re making this an issue between me and Fulton Books and it shouldn’t be.  

Sincerely,

Francis Joseph LaManna

Entering Scorpio, Holding Hands

October 23, 2022

Good morning everyone, today is Sunday, October 23rd, and at 9:50 AM (eastern time) the Sun and Venus entered Scorpio together in the 11th House.

Sun conjunct Venus 0 degrees Scorpio/11th House

The 11th House, which is the home of Uranus and Aquarius, represents our hopes and wishes for the future. The 11th House is also the house of friendships and dreams and goals that are long-term, idealism, and vision.

Traditionally, Scorpio rules the 8th House, The house of death and regeneration, but this morning we found Scorpio occupying the 11th House.

Before I go any further, I would like to share a story about a friend of mine who was in surgery last week to have cancer removed. So far so good, she is in recovery, and waiting for further information. I couldn’t think of a better example of what’s going on right now astrologically with our current alignment between the Sun and Venus in Scorpio.

Because Scorpio rules the 8th House, but was in the 11th House this morning, this represents several things correlating to my friends situation. It’s a reminder of the harsh reality of life, which is that tomorrow is never guaranteed, and it reminds us that we have to put that harsh reality aside and continue living a fulfilling life of good quality. It reminds us that we need to visualize an ideal future for ourselves and plan for it.

The timing for her couldn’t be any better. The Sun is the life force and will of the zodiac, and Venus is the Goddess of love and beauty, who in Sumerian mythology was known as Inanna. Inanna was the Goddess of love, war, fertility, beauty, sex, divine justice. and political power.

I can’t even begin to believe this as Scorpio rules human reproductive organs, which is exactly the part of her body affected. In her birth chart, she has Chiron on the 27th degree of Taurus in the 8th House, and her natal Chiron is in trine with both her natal Sun and Venus. She has Libra rising with a 12th House Sun, and Jupiter is in Scorpio, the sign that occupies the majority of the 11th House. Jupiter is the most benevolent force and he bestows us with good luck, fortune, and expansion.

Last night I burned a candle for her and continue to pray for her recovery. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ™

So, this morning…

Together, the Sun and Venus are holding hands as they enter Scorpio. Scorpio is a feminine water sign that’s fixed in quality. The conjunction is powerful, it’s a combination of life force, the will to live, and love in a future house. I can’t help but think of Jesus in this situation, because it was Jesus (the Sun/Son) who was said to be vibrating at the highest frequency level, which is pure love (Venus), and by doing so, was able to conquer death.

We must cast the inevitable aside and remember that life can be full of great things if we’re loving and maintain the will to live. Scorpio (reproduction/sex organs) in the 11th House, reminds us that although the act of sex is highly pleasurable, the ability to have children is one of our greatest gifts. Our children are the future, and the future we visualize for ourselves is one that not only includes them, but it’s one they’ll be carrying forward.

So, as the Sun enters Scorpio and Scorpio season commences, he does so with the Goddess of love by his side.

Both are in a stressful square with Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd House.

What’s going on here?

Pluto is the planet of regeneration, he looks to eliminate anything and everything that’s no longer useful or preventing growth so we can have a fresh start.

The 2nd House deals with possessions, and Capricorn is reserved, prudent, and patient, and uses cunning instead of force. Capricorn is persistent and determined.

Pluto is creating tension between the Sun and Venus in the 11th House, because he wants a bright future for them. As we move forward with love and the will to live, the removal of anything that doesn’t support that ideal must go.

Sometimes we don’t have a choice, and Pluto shows no mercy when it comes to regeneration.

As we deal with the power of Pluto in the 2nd House, we are to do so with the qualities and characteristics of Capricorn; patient, cunning instead of force, and we must be determined and persistent.

When it comes to the use of intellect over force, we are blessed with a Grand Air Trine between Mars in Gemini, Mercury in Libra, and Saturn in Aquarius.

At the end of the day, we are not to worry. Pluto is tugging at life and love, but Pluto’s trine with Uranus in the 6th House of health and service reinforces that goodness and favorable outcomes are maintained at the highest levels.

The lucky numbers for Scorpio: 2 and 4 (Tomorrow is the 24th)

Lucky Scorpio Day: Tuesday

Lucky Colors: Burgundy and Crimson (Colors of Passion)

It’s an interesting time for sure! Now before I end this, I want to remind everyone that on Tuesday, which is the luckiest day for Scorpio, we have a brand-new moon cycle beginning!

Can you believe it?!?! A new moon in Scorpio that will partially eclipse the Sun.

Symbolically, death and resurrection is what’s on the menu. The universe is giving us an opportunity to start fresh like the legendary Phoenix, or the lotus flower that blossoms into something unbelievably beautiful and perfect after coming up through the harshest conditions.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and happy birthday to all the Scorpios out there!
