Astrological update for the week of October 26 2020 – Taurus Full Moon, Black Moon Lilith, and much more

There’s a lot going on this week including a powerful Full Moon conjunct Uranus, signifying a potentially surprising event or change.  In this video I’m trying something new: there are time codes in the description box so that you can skip right to the part that interests you.  Let me know what you think of that feature!  The transcript of the video is below for those of you who prefer to read, or for reference later in the week.

We also have an election coming up, if you missed my video about astrological influences that will affect the US election you can catch up here.

Transcript (roughly edited, please excuse errors):

Hi everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes Welcome back to my channel. In today’s video we’re going to be talking about the astrology for the week of October 26. Going all the way through November 3, which is the election in the United States.

The first thing I’d like to talk about is that both Mercury and Venus will be moving into Libra. Mercury has been in Scorpio, it’s traveling retrograde, so Mercury will be retrograding back into Libra. Venus is traveling direct, so it will be moving forward from Virgo into Libra. But they both shift on the same day. So this is going to bring sort of an infusion of that Libra energy that seeks balance and equanimity and peacefulness. These two shifts happen on October 27 on the heels of a period of the last two weeks where Mars has been very active.

Mars and Venus are of course diametrically opposed. Mars is all action and energy […]

Sunday inspiration about hope

photo by Chiew Loo on Flickr

I had purchased a book from a noted environmental writer recently, thinking that it would provide inspiration in these challenging times, but the book is really full of anger and rage at the state of the world.  It’s important to allow our anger to inspire and motivate us to work for change, but there is a fine line between the anger that fires up our inspiration and the rage that debilitates us into helplessness.  So instead I went hunting for something that would help us to find that line and I came across this passage from astrologer Rick Tarnas ‘s Facebook page and I think it’s just perfect even though it’s a couple of years old.  I hope you will agree.

A couple of thoughts about hope in a dark time:
I’ve been thinking about hope lately. Hope seems to me a crucial factor for us all today. We’re descending daily into catastrophe, yet we are inalienably endowed with an ever-evolving aspiration to realize something beyond the already-actual. Hope, I believe, can serve as both an *intimation* and an *evocation* of a greater or higher or deeper dimension of being that is drawing us forth.
It seems to be in the nature of this dimension that in the very experience of our sensing its existence – such as glimpsing a great arc of the moral universe, or seeing a beauty that passes all understanding – we feel powerfully drawn to actualize it, to participate in its enactment even if our rigorous instrumental reason and the existing empirical data give us […]

Last minute thoughts on the astrology of the 2020 election

We’re coming down the home stretch, and I continue to get queries about the election so I thought I’d share some thoughts.  Most of the predictions I’ve read have been based on the charts of the two candidates and most of those have relied on the strength of the planetary cycles each candidate is experiencing.  The prevailing idea seems to be that the candidate with the most harmonious planetary conditions will prevail, but that’s not how this works.  It’s often during the most grueling and challenging planetary cycles that we enjoy the greatest successes.  In addition, the election of a leader of a nation has more to do with the state of that nation than the candidates who become more of a symbol of the major themes experiencing in the country at the time.

I prepared a little video for my channel:

Some astrologers use the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn for prediction:  Jupiter represents expansion and freedom, and Saturn represents restriction and control.  In the United States currently these major themes appear to be Law and Order and Nationalist Pride with a Governmental Control sub-theme (Saturn themes) on the Republican side vs Environmental Issues and Social Justice (Jupiter)with a sub-theme of COVID-19 safety on the Democratic side.  I read one article from an astrologer who claimed that Jupiter represents Republicans and Saturn Democrats, but I suppose it depends on your viewpoint.  Democrats tend to prefer bigger government with more services which would fall under the generosity of Jupiter, whereas Republicans seek greater control through adherence to laws and the structures of religion which to be is more Saturnian.

I mention this only to suggest that perhaps her predictive techniques are similarly not free from bias.  The point that the globalism of […]

Astrological update for the week of October 19, 2020

In this week’s video we’ll dive a little more into how Mercury’s retrograde travel interacts with the other planets this week, and of course we couldn’t let a week go by without talking about Mars!  The second half of the video, as always, will give you the details you need to help plan your week.  Sorry, there will be no transcript today as I’m out of town with limited internet.  I’ll try to put up a transcript on Tuesday or Wednesday when I return.

Sunday inspiration for the inner warrior

Oya, the Warrior Goddess, by Francisco Santos

Mars represents the inner warrior – our courage and ability to defend ourselves.  Mars entered Aries, where it is most powerful, on  June 27, 2020 and because of its retrograde cycle it will not leave Aries until January 6th.  While Mars is in Aries it will stress the 2020 Capricorn stellium for much of the year (watch this two-minute video to see how the 2020 planetary drama unfolded).  This story from Pema Chodron is perfect for helping us to tap into this warrior energy and do battle with our own fears. 

Once there was a young warrior. Her teacher told her that she had to do battle with fear.

She didn’t want to do that. It seemed too aggressive; it was scary; it seemed unfriendly. But the teacher said she had to do it and gave her the instructions for the battle.

The day arrived. The student warrior stood on one side, and fear stood on the other. The warrior was feeling very small, and fear was looking big and wrathful. They both had their weapons.

The young warrior roused herself and went toward fear, prostrated three times, and asked, “May I have permission to go into battle with you?” Fear said, “Thank you for showing me so much respect that you ask permission.”

Then the young warrior said, “How can I defeat you?” Fear replied, “My weapons are that I talk fast, and I get very close to your face. Then you get completely unnerved, and you do whatever I say. If you don’t do what I tell you, I have no power. You can listen to me, and you can have respect for […]
