October 23rd –
November 22nd 2019
Element: Water/Emotional level
Modality/Season: Fixed/Middle of Fall
Ruled by: Pluto. Old ruler: Mars.
Wednesday evening, the Sun enters Scorpio and we are now deep in the middle of Fall and there’s no way around it; the Dark has taken over and is only exceeding in strength.
We turn back the clock and return to real time this weekend, which means that we, true to the spirit of Scorpio, literally must now face both outer and inner darkness.
In nature everything withers and appears to die, during the month of Scorpio, but underneath the surface life continues in hiding and starts preparations for a rebirth in Spring. From this comes Scorpios close relation to death and rebirth and everything hidden under the surface.
Scorpio thus takes nothing lightly, there’s no room for superficiality, it seeks depth, truth and realness and has to burn passionately for everything it does – or it doesn’t matter at all!
In accordance with nature’s death and the rule of the Dark we celebrate Halloween, during the month of Scorpio, a festival in honour of death and darkness.
Our beloved deceased ones come closer to us at this time, but at the same time creatures of the dark can also more easily leave the underworld and slip through to this dimension and tease or torture us.
For most this festival is a fun way to take on the Dark and its scary creatures and Death itself, through decorations, costumes, thrills, trick or treat, that make it all a bit easier to handle.
However, for others this is deadly serious, as this is high season in certain circles for living out the absolute darkest sides of themselves at the expense of innocent victims.
With all the energies of endings and change presently, this is certainly one of the most important things to bring to an end, so that no one involuntarily must suffer because of dark tendencies, rituals and perversities of others, in the future.
Scorpios ability to dig deep, research, unravel and willingness to look without blinking at what’s truly going in the dark, are all essential qualities to get to that point.
This could very well turn out to be a Halloween to remember, since were not only dealing with seasonal darkness this year, but the collective prevailing energies are also very heavy and dark at the moment, as well.
Saturn’s long trigger and end of a previous Solar Eclipse in its own sign, is still ongoing the next 3 weeks and will interestingly enough reach its peak at Halloween, on October 31st -November 1st, where Saturn will be exactly at the eclipse degree 15°25 Capricorn.
At the same time Saturn is closing in on Scorpios ruler, Pluto, and as they’re moving closer to each other, they are also getting closer to their final meeting point at 22°46 Capricorn in January.
So, on all accounts this is a dark and challenging time we are facing, but also a time with opportunities to clean up darkness and dark activities and make huge changes towards a better future, if we take on the challenges.
The New Moon in Scorpio will be on October 28th and the Full Moon on the Taurus/Scorpio axis is on November 12th, the day after the Mercury transit of the Sun, on November 11th.
Read more below, when the time is near, so that you can make the best use of the energies.
Have a great month of Scorpio – face the dark, light it up and transform it 😊❤

Late Sunday, the Moon reaches 20°13 Aries, exactly opposite the Sun in Libra, and October’s Full Moon takes place.
While the Sun in Libra seeks harmony and balance, is diplomatic and considerate and often ready to bite its tongue to avoid conflict, the Aries Moon automatically puts itself and its own needs first and is not afraid to push its agenda through, conflict or not.
In many areas of life, compromise is necessary in order to co-exist with others. But there are also areas, where you, in order to be true to yourself, need to stand firm, cut through, set a limit for what you’re willing to put up with and also be willing to do whatever it takes to get where you want.
Here in the days surrounding the Full Moon, it’s wise to consider what your dealbreakers are? The things that you cannot and will not compromise on.
The Full Moon on the Aries/Libra axis comes with the message, that you need to choose your battles wisely, but then also be brave enough to take on the really important battles in life.
And some of those important battles might show up in the nearest future, however not necessarily in the most obvious way.
Since the Sun and Moon are squared precisely by Pluto, the waters are murky, there are many hidden agendas and possible sabotaging, undercutting and backstabbing, so it’s necessary to dig deep to find the true motives and intentions, both in yourself and in others.
So, before taking action, it’s a good idea to do some deep inner as well as outer detective work first.
It’s not a good idea to let aggressions rise for no – or little - reason, but at the same time, it’s not a good idea to passively accept something, that turns out not to be in your best interest, either.
Collectively, aggression/conflict/war and diplomatic peace offering solutions are also butting heads – and here’s also a lot of hidden agendas at work. You can be sure, there’s a lot more going on – and often something quite differently – than what the official statements and explanations offer. So, take nothing at face value, dig deep, do your own research, before settling on a perception of what’s truly going on.
In itself, this is an intense Full Moon, because of Pluto’s involvement, but there’s also a lot more going on, right now.
The Full Moon happens on a backdrop, where Taurus’ ruler Venus opposes Uranus in Taurus, and might push some of the Uranus in Taurus themes forward.
Sunday is also when Saturn begins it month long trigger of Januarys Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, which, as described below, will be quite a heavy and distinct affair.
At the same time the Saturn – Pluto conjunction and its themes, that are already quite prevalent, is further intensified as well.
The most distinct of the current collective energies are thus activated from this weekend and forward - and it can be both a very eventful, but also very heavy and intense time from now on.
Both Aries as well as Libra possess different qualities, such as high energy, guts and fighting spirit, as well as a sense of inner peace, calmness and balance, that will be much needed through the challenging times ahead, and since Full Moon is release time, it’s beneficial to release and clear some of what stands in the way of or steals and drains those qualities from your life.
The Full Moon is precise Sunday evening at 22.07 (BST- adjust to your local time)
Happy Aries Full Moon 😊❤

During the Summer, we have several times experienced Mars trigger previous, but still active Solar Eclipses, which is far from unusual, as Mars is known as the classic eclipse trigger, who several times a year reaches former eclipse degrees and activates the themes of the eclipse in question and bring them further along.
Now, we’re heading into a more rare and longer lasting trigger, as Saturn from October 13th – November 13, will stay around the eclipse degree 15°25 Capricorn. This partial Solar Eclipse took place on January 6th.
Where Mars comes in and activates and speed things up, Saturn comes in and hits the breaks, slows down, stops and ends.
Eclipses triggered and ended by Saturn thus often bring distinct endings with it.
Eclipses in Capricorn typically focus on societal institutions and pillars, leaders of state, government, authorities, business world & people, industry, leaders, labor organizations and elders.
When Saturn triggers an eclipse, weaknesses and failures in structures and systems will be tested to the limit, and not everything will be able to handle the pressure. So, something could very well end up breaking completely down.
Huge changes could happen, where power, influence and status could change hands, are taken from some and handed over to others.
When Saturn triggers an eclipse, limitations, restrictions, scarcity and lack is often a theme as well. Something is removed, cut down, downsized, saved on, something will no longer be available and must be done without.
Since this furthermore is taking place in Saturn’s own sign, Capricorn, Saturn only has more power behind it, thus making the probability of the above things happening even higher. Furthermore, add the fact that Saturn is also in an important aspect to the distinct and transformative Pluto, making chances of distinct events particularly high.
Among other things Pluto represents common resources and economy, and since some of the faster moving planets, including another values & economy indicator, Venus, will be opposing Uranus in Taurus (a placement that in itself predicts financial changes), at the same time, financial instability and crisis, could very well be an important part of what will be taking place.
Debt, consequences and bills to settle and repay will likely be a huge theme, both financially and on a karmic level.
However, a Saturn triggered eclipse can also be a time for collecting and cashing in karmic bonus points as well.
On a personal level, the eclipse in January was about taking on more responsibility, to a larger extent setting the framework and structure for your own life, taking fully on your inner authority, as outer authorities, leaders, societal institutions and the whole structure of society might not necessarily be something you can count on, to the extent you might previously had, any longer.
The eclipse also focused on your career and public profile, and also the things you do, that you don’t necessarily make all of your - or any - money on but is a calling and a higher life purpose for you.
These areas and themes will be activated the coming month and might also come to some kind of climax.
A while ago I saw the words: “October 2019 has been written and planned for a very, very long time”
How exactly this will unfold, we will know in only a few weeks.
The planetary energies certainly confirm, that this is a particular distinct month, followed by other distinct months, as it’s a crucial Fall season and Winter half year, we have entered.
In other words, it’s “hotspot time” again – and a long one at that.
We’ve been through a lot, this past decade, where have lived through countless tumultuous hotspots, we’ve been shaken and are hopefully both more awake and jaded now, and thus also better suited for getting through this heavy and long hotspot. It’s wise to be prepared for a bit of everything, really, as we have reached the point where things will begin to fall apart.
At the same time this gives us a special opportunity for getting rid of a lot of rot and put something new, healthier, better and more just in its place. So, it’s important to not let these heavy energies get us down, so that we waste the opportunities, that October and the following months also offer.

Early October 2019
New and Full Moon in General
In the course of a year, we traditionally have a few times where we stop, reflect and say goodbye to what lie behind us, before we begin a new chapter, with hopes, wishes and goals for what lies ahead. Usually this is when we enter a new calendar year in January and at our birthday. Both New Year and birthdays are based on the Suns return to a particular point in its cycle through the Zodiac.
There's another cycle, though, based on both the Moon and the Sun, and if you are conscious of that cycle, you get far more opportunities during a year, to start over, begin a new chapter and to let go of the old that no longer works for you, and to do this in alignment with the prevailing energies, at the New - and Full Moon.
At New Moon the Sun and Moon, are in the exact same spot, in the same Zodiac sign. When both Luminaries are in the same sign, it creates an enormous power and focus on that particular signs qualities and energy, which we all, no matter our individual "star sign", can access, if we open up and tune in at the right moment. That would be as close as possible to the moment where the New Moon is precise.
During this phase the Moon is invisible, it has just finished a cycle and begins a new one, while still in hiding. This is why there's a strong "new beginning - energy" around the New Moon, where it's very beneficial to start over, take new initiatives, set new goals and make wishes and plans for the future. There simply is no better time to start something new.
During a year the Sun and Moon makes these joint stops through each sign in the Zodiac and through all or most "houses" /life areas of your individual natal chart.
Intentions, initiatives and goals that are aligned with the particular signs qualities and energy will be the most powerful and effective, but in theory you can wish for anything, as long as it's in within "the highest good for all involved".
As close as possible to the time after the New Moon is precise, it's beneficial to open up, tune in, meditate, visualize, do vision boards, manifest, write down goals and intentions etc.
(The exception is when the Moon is "Void of course" (makes no more aspects to other planets while it's in that sign ), then it's better to wait until the Moon has moved into the next sign. This is a technical thing, that you won't have to worry about, as I will always mention in my New Moon reports, if the exact New Moon moment isn't the best time to work with the New Moon energy and when it will be instead).
One beneficial thing you can do is to write up to 10 goals and wishes on a list. Whenever one is fulfilled, make a new list with the remaining goals. Update the list and add new things if you like at every New Moon. It's always a good idea to have a mix of short and long term goals, as well as a mix of smaller and bigger wishes.
At both the New and Full Moon the door to other dimensions is wide open around the precise time. Deep insights and important messages can reach you, as you will be much more receptive.
At Full Moon the Sun and Moon are 180 degrees apart, in opposite signs of the Zodiac and the focus is on both the differences and the common theme on the mutual axis made by the two signs.
In this phase the Moon rises, when the Sun sets, and as clearly seen in the sky, it has reached its maximum potential.
The Full Moon is alluring, fascinating, beautiful, mystical and magical. For some it's also disturbing, many can't sleep, some are more prone to mood swings, some easier lose their temper and planned things doesn't always go as intended.
The Full Moon energy is way better for improvisation, for letting go and going with the flow than for the planned and controlled.
With this energy, it's beneficial for you to let go, not just of yourself, but also in the sense of letting go of and releasing unwanted things in your life.
While at the New Moon you should focus on what you wish to manifest and actively bring into your life, at the Full Moon it's about cleansing and releasing everything in your life, that might once have had its purpose, but now no longer works for you and stands in the way of your wellbeing and balance.
One could also say that the New Moon has a more Solar/yang/"masculine" feel; here you get to be an active co-creator of your life, while the Full Moon has a more Lunar/yin/"feminine" feel, here the energy is more out of control, you get to release and receive.
A beneficial Full Moon ritual - could be to write down the things you wish to let go of, (once again preferably as close to the exact Full Moon moment as possible) on pieces of paper and then burn them (safely), piece for piece.
If you don't have anything in particular you wish to let go of at a Full Moon, but perhaps are looking for some sort of guidance, open yourself up and see what comes to you, as you will be much more receptive than usual.
And finally, of course, make sure to get out there and take in the beauty and magic of the Full Moon in the evening/ night sky.
Every year has several eclipses at New and Full Moon, some of them won't be visible where you live, but they will still be highly influential on an energetic level.
A Solar eclipse is an extremely powerful New Moon and a Lunar Eclipse is an extremely powerful Full Moon. Both has an effect that reaches far beyond a normal New/Full Moon. The eclipses are the Universes way of pinpointing certain themes, that we collectively are meant to take a closer look at. On a personal level, the eclipses pinpoint specific areas of your life that will be of focus in one way or another, for the coming future.
New & Full Moon, Eclipses and your personal chart.
Obviously to make the best use of both the New and Full Moon - and the Eclipse - energies, you should use them along with your personal chart.
Then it won't just be the particular signs involved (that are common for all us), but also the specific life areas they take place in (which varies from person to person) as well as involving the planets in your personal chart, that might be triggered. It then becomes a deeply personal way, you can work with the energies of our two Luminaries; the Sun and the Moon. During a year you will get through all the areas of your life and during a whole life time, different planets in your chart will be triggered and add to the meaning.
Here you can order my special New - And Full Moon Chart which tells you where the New and Full Moon will be in your personal chart a year ahead and how you can make the best use of - and align yourself beneficially with the Solar and Lunar energies, in a way that only you can, since every person and their personal chart is completely unique.
