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. 💕💕🙏
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!
