Put down that microscope. The detail focused month of Scorpio ends on Tuesday, and the Sun moves into Sagittarius, helping us view the world through a wide-angle lens — or a colorful kaleidoscope. Worldly Sag brings cheerful moods, big ideas and philosophical conversations to the fore. No wonder the earliest holiday parties are always so much fun. Sagittarius is also ruled by Jupiter, the Roman god of the feast, which explains all the irresistible treats and inevitable holiday pounds. Oh well, we can shed them in January, when the Sun is in somber, disciplined Capricorn.
We've been talking a lot about Venus retrograde, which blessedly ends this Thursday. It's a six-week cycle that's challenging for love (hence, all the celebrity breakups this fall), and many astrologers advise against weddings and engagements during this cycle. But retrogrades CAN be good for second chances. The prefix "re-" means to do again, after all. Perhaps it's fitting that former MTV couple Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson have both announced new engagements during this Venus retrograde.
So, how will they fare?
This weekend marks the Scorpio new moon, the start of a six-month cycle that helps us all reconnect with the people, projects and ideas that matter to us most. New moons encourage fresh starts, and one falls in a different sign each month.
This weekend, the Sun moves from lighthearted Libra into
intense Scorpio, shifting the energy to a more intimate, reflective vibe.
Scorpio energy helps us transition from fall into winter. Over the next month,
we’ll all hunker down into hibernation mode, preparing for the holidays and
wrapping up the unfinished detail work of 2010.
For her fall debut, Lindsay Lohan wore cuff bracelets and an orange romper. All the rage in prisons these days! Last week we watched her go back to jail. This week she’s posted $300,000 in bail, only to be shuttled back to rehab again.
