Metaphorcast for 10/19-25, 2020

Libra Season comes to an end this week, the colorful leaves just past their peak- The first half of the week, in a major key, sings a blissful autumn symphony.  But by Thursday at the strike of dusk, a new seed emerges from it’s husk, hungering to become more free, the music shifts to a minor key.

Scorpio, the 8th and most enigmatic sign is not satisfied to be just the minor side of the piano- it will take all 88 keys.  What more could a power-loving water sign want following Libra, the sign of duality.  What has Scorpio learned?  Surely not to settle for half of the piano!

Scorpio is hungry for power, it’s consciousness is a merging one, deep waters hold an emerging sun, providing more light from which to see, beyond the scope of just two keys.

Libra’s 7 is bound up in the objective world- in the 7 days of the week, the 7 notes of a scale, and its general airy feeling of luck and openness.  Libra lets the scenery do the talking, what does the world speak to you, onlooker?  And do you see it’s refreshing sense of order in it’s shapes and patterns?

Armed with the wide and refreshing perspective of Libra, Scorpio scuba dives down into the depths of the innermost life, with an intent, to merge two worlds.  

During this Seasonal shift your Libra hot cider sip co-mingles with a glimpse of a giant spider plastered on a door- altering the sweetness to a place more sublime.  We are entering the realm of all 88 keys, how might we navigate this terrain with ease, this terrain of infinite possibilities?

French Physiologist Claude Bernard said “Man can learn nothing except by going from the known to the unknown.”  The shift is from the 7 to the 8.  From the everyday world of otherness, to an unknowable realm of possibility.  The minor key signals the fear of the unknown, as does the eight-legged spider on the door.  But we didn’t dive down to the depths to constrict the known- we dove down to expand it.  

Relaxing into the abyss, the vision expands. Two worlds.  The life of the imagination and the life of the world outside.  How can they better serve each other, better enhance each other.  What new life can emerge?

Mercury the planet of mind treads mysterious water in Scorpio’s realm of the unknown.  Rene Magritte said “The mind loves the unknown.”  The trickster is somewhat at home in the unknown.  With stream of consciousness magnetized the energy gets galvanized!

Venus moves deeper into Virgo, that second brain called of the gut, the most regenerative place in the body.  Her full body thinking is one of leisurely contemplation.  She makes a friendly trine to a trio of Capricorn planets; Jupiter Saturn and Pluto.  This trio has been hanging near each other for quite some time, perpetuating serious themes of hope, striving and transformation.  With the bigger questions and concerns this upcoming week, don’t forget to consult the constantly refreshing oracle, of your gut!

Mars in Aries approaches that Cappy trio with tension instead of ease, making a square aspect, and in retrograde.  The Will is likely frustrated and feeling blocked.  Remember to train those eyes to synthesize your creative vision with the life your livin’!  Build some imagination into your world.  As architect Frank Gehry said “You’ve got to bumble forward into the unknown.”

Uranus in Taurus, reawakening to the flow of known to unknown to known

Neptune in Pisces- the churning Seas of what’s unseen

The Moon

The Moon begins the week a waxing Crescent in spirited Sagittarius, who’s knowingness comes from the heights of enthusiasm.  A growing Sagittarius Moon is an invitation to feel that spirited sensation of heights, whether in the moment, in the memory, or in the imagination, and become accustomed to it, as your faith-filled steed! 

By Wednesday she matures into Capricorn, the planet of constriction, of focus and maturity.  This Moon, at dusk will welcome in the New Scorpion King.  Confront any troubles with the wisdom of all 88 keys.  As Niels Bohr said, “Every great and deep difficulty bears in itself its own solution. It forces us to change our thinking in order to find it.”

By Friday and through most of the weekend, an Aquarian Moon browns beyond its first quarter.  The Aquarian Age upon us in the Season of infinite change, this Moonlight will highlight that full piano range.  How can you get started, on expanding the known?

By Sunday evening, as Mercury closes in on the Sun, a Pisces Moon sets sail.  The trickster of mind lit up with Neon Scorpio Sunshine, and the Pisces Moon is blissfully happy to make poetry of whatever it finds.  Beyond the land of opposites, into the realm of something else.  Do you know anything of this realm?  Isn’t that you at the quantum sea ship’s helm?

As always, happy astro pondering!

Venus and the Virtues of Negativity

Ladies and gents we are about to explore the mysterious functions of Venus, a.k.a Aphrodite.  Alchemically she is linked to the metal copper.  Her reputation revolves around love and beauty.

d83f70435c4b138fe2928d4faceabf08

All aboard!

First stop, the human body, specifically the circulatory system.

circulatory-system

Hmm.. strange first stop but okay.  In this picture of the human circulatory system we see that we are all red and blue inside.

In the last post we talked about how Mars, a.k.a iron is what makes the blood red when it combines with oxygen (iron as hemoglobin).  It is this oxygenated red blood that travels through the arteries and nourishes all of our organs.

homework boy

What is all the blue then?

Quite simply the blue blood is now WITHOUT oxygen because the organs have used it all up.  It now travels through the veins back to the heart where it will become oxygenated again through our breath (and that hemoglobin!)

VenusCardboardCutoutStandeeStandupRomanGoddessLove-500x500

Ok but where does she fit in?  This is a post about Venus?

Let’s start with her name, Venus.  Quite similar to the word VEIN is it not?  And for that matter Mars sounds more like ARtery.

german_painter_adam_and_eve

In the same way, Adam uses Mars’ letters and Eve uses Venus’ letters

NGS Picture ID:1249550

Ram is practically the word Mars backwards (as well as it’s zodiac-associated symbol)  And EWE is Eve with a small middle letter adjustment!

How-an-electrical-cable-is-made-1

Eve, ewe and now ELE.  ELEctricity is conducted most often through Venus’ signature metal, copper.

TS_126408633

MAgnetism is found in MArs’ signature metal iron by means of the magnetized iron ore attracting to it more iron.

Back to the blood..  it seems to be an intuitive understanding that Mars and red blood go hand in hand.  Less intuitive is Venus’ blue blood, the blood that is WITHOUT oxygen.

159309174_ion

ELEctric lightning produces NEGATIVE ions in the air.  Negative ions are said to produce numerous health benefits mostly by relaxing the body and bringing it back into balance

aphrodite-6

Ah.. back into balance.  This is beginning to sound like me.

image_006_waterfall

Water falls and infrared saunas are other places where negative ions are found.  Can you not feel the affects just by looking at this image?

Venus is introducing the principle of PASSIVITY and RESTORATION (negativity without it’s bad connotations).  It seeks balance by being passive.  It trusts in nature and knows there is an order more divine here than anything we could actively cook up ourselves (leave that to Mars!).

Let’s talk a little more about it’s signature metal, Copper.

4066553303_dd5401d1a0_o

Here is our Lady of Liberty displaying copper in all it’s beauty when it oxidizes in salty air and turns green.  For the Ellis Island immigrants she looked shiny and bright copper-colored.

So some of Copper’s themes have to do with electricity, and this rather pretty light green tint.

Northern lights: Spectacular footage captured in Iceland - video

Therefore we can see her strange and mysterious signature here in the Northern Lights.  Mars’ lodestone will point towards this.  Mars being attracted to Venus.

Here she is in a firefly

Venus points to the blue blood and the green color that copper turns.  Where else do we see blue and green?

Unknown-1

Everywhere on our home planet Earth!

Earth demonstrates magnificent beauty especially when it’s left alone (Venus).  National Parks are an excellent example of this.

129256055-1680x1050

Venus doing what she does best: nothing.

Venus knows how to let nature BE her order.  She knows to listen, to notice, to meet and behold.

ULE1pME

She knows how to befriend by not imposing any will upon the other.  This photo is from Argentina’s extreme and controversial petting zoo.  In 2 decades there have been no reports of the animals lashing out to the humans.  The zoo owners claim that all they do for these animals is make sure they are comfortable and well-fed.

Our bodies are constantly sending electrical messages from our brain to various body parts.  Electricity is needed to make anything happen, from blinking our eyes to making ourselves a sandwich.  Electrical signals happen when the cells switch from a negative charge to a positive charge.

iStock_000012229229_260_tcm4-653837

The natural resting state of your cells is negativity, a.k.a Venus.  Leave the action to Mars (positivity)

Once again I will bring in the Wizard of Oz because I simply can’t help it.  The Emerald City looks a lot like the northern lights married the Statue of Liberty.  Not only that but like the North Pole, it serves as center of attraction of which our heroes and heroine are pulled towards.

emeraldcity

We’re off to see the Wizard!

But what happens when they get there?  What does the Wizard say?

Wizard-of-Oz-Caps-the-wizard-of-oz-2028565-720-536

He tells them they already have what they are looking for.  They don’t need to do ANYTHING except realize it.  Venus has spoken.

In closing, Venus teaches us the virtues of negativity and how non-doing can restore and bring back balance.  It is a side of life that is often ignored, especially in our fast paced modern society.  We can consciously feel the blissful effects of negativity by sitting by running water and soaking up those negative ions, or noticing the peace that is felt after a rainstorm.  Another fun tip, beeswax candles also emit negative ions.

Bee-apis

To the bees, thank you for being a friend.

 

 

 

 

The close relationship of the heart and mind (Sun and Mercury)

I have a simian crease on my dominant hand.  For those who don’t know, that is one line across the palm of the hand instead of two.  It’s a blending of the head and the heart line.  Every now and then I zone out on it and certain questions start to percolate.

3f4db354cdbdd8ae907e2f1ffb00a9d1

The simian line

Does my mind blend well with my heart?  Do my feelings always match my words?  It’s a lovely idea that the head and the heart should be so entwined.  I would guess that life would feel like a waltz that you knew all of the steps to.  In astrology the Sun rules the heart and Mercury rules the mind.  It’s interesting that Mercury is never 28 degrees farther away from the Sun.  Therefore many people have their Mercuries in the same sign as their Sun.  Is it easier for these people to find that happy balance between mind and heart?

images

Mercury, aka Hermes is the winged messenger in mythology. Does a healthy balance of mind and heart result in a genuine lightheartedness?

images-1

Babies don’t have their minds working enough yet to struggle with that imbalance so they are naturally light-hearted.

Unknown-2

The challenge is to get from being a light-hearted baby to here, after all that life throws at you.

My Sun is in Leo but my Mercury is in Virgo and I definitely feel the little tug of war between these energies within me.  I have an early memory that echoes through my soul where I was so eager to show off (Leo) that I knew the word that the teacher was writing on the board.  “I know what that says!  I know what that says!”  and the teacher said “Tess, don’t—” because she wanted the other kids to sound it out, but I didn’t heed her warning and blurted out “JILL!”.  The teacher let out a sigh of frustration and that’s when my Mercury in Virgo took over.  In my head I was mortified at my know-it-all behavior.  Where’s my humility??  My Virgo mind needed that I maintain humility but my Leo heart wanted to go for the gold!  This is a theme that has repeated itself many times over in my life.

images-3

These guys want peace not war!

Mercury also rules the lungs.  This ties mind into speech as well as connectivity with all living things.  The air we breath today is the same air that was breathed by Nostradamus and Shakespeare.  In the human body the lungs and the heart are VERY intimately connected just like the Sun and Mercury.  As I learned in my Medical Assistant training class,  the blood is blue when it enters the heart’s first chamber because it has no oxygen.  After it fills up the first two chambers of the heart it goes directly into the lungs where it becomes oxygenated and RED (!) then back into the heart’s last two chambers where it is sent through the aorta to deliver this oxygen to the rest of the body.  Pretty amazing…

dTrMkggbc

The veins bring the blue blood back into the heart, where the lung dance happens and the arteries deliver the red blood back through the body.

heart-anatomy

A closer look at the blue and red heart. The pulmonary arteries and veins connect the heart and lungs. Major organ intimacy!

Is your natal Mercury in the same sign as your natal Sun or in a different one?  If understanding these relationships better can help facilitate a lighter heart, I think that is reflection well spent. YakYucks

Happy Birthday Johnny Cash!

To say he is an enigma is quite the understatement when it comes to Johnny Cash.  “The Man in Black” without a doubt lives up to his mysterious nickname.  His words come out straight, with no extraneous descriptive poetics, yet they hit us deep within our soul by way of emotional accuracy.  This man knows pain and suffering, and he strides through that dark territory like the outlaw that he is.

images-1

On to his chart!

Data Deluxe

The fist theme that jumps off the page here (always a good place to start) is the EXTREME Neptune/ Pisces energy.  He has his Sun (life energy) conjunct his Mercury (speech and mind) and Mars not far behind (what makes him tick) ALL in sensitive Pisces and all in Pisces’ natural house, the 12th.  The 12th house brings Pisces types of issues into your world- issues like times when you feel vulnerable, overwhelmed, or weak.

cash

The 12th house can be your own personal prison. A place where you are stuck until you learn that you hold the key to your freedom. Here stands Johnny outside of San Quentin prison, one of the two prisons he famously performed in.

On the higher end this could be times/places that bring feelings of rapture or interconnectedness with all of life.  But suffering is no stranger to the 12th house, and Pisces energy feels everything more sensitively.  Let’s add the very important detail that Neptune itself is EXACTLY opposite his Sun/Mercury- adding one more POWERFUL thrust of vulnerability to this equation.  It’s really unbelievable this set up.  This man is either walking with God or walking with his demons.

cash1968

Here at Folsom Prison the climate is one more of rapture than isolation. He’s the man for the job.

johnny_and_billy_1383334306_600x275

Pisces seeks the rapture. Cash sought this through drug and alcohol addiction as well as religious experiences. Here he is with his good friend the Reverend Billy Graham. He valued this friendship so much that his house in Jamaica featured a “Billy Graham room” with a bed only for Billy.

Instead of cowering in a corner in the face of pain and suffering, Cash puts on a headlamp and marches straight in to the dark trenches of sorrow in search of something true.  This is the spirit of an 8th house Scorpio Moon.  Scorpio is emotional energy that goes deep and craves REALNESS.  The 8th house is the place in life where those things happen, like intimate relationships or offering values (like the messages in his songs) that can be truly SHARED by others.

Unknown-1

Cash faces emotional trouble dead on and transforms (Scorpio) pain into wisdom.

maxresdefault

Another Uranus/Venus Aries example is his spontaneous (Uranus) proposal (Venus) to June Carter in 1968. She tried to deflect his question, as he was a bit high at the time, but he made sure he got an answer (Aries). His unrequited love for June helped him “walk the line”, instead of floating off into obscurity. (Aries verse Pisces).

But there’s more to Cash’s approach.  He’s an outlaw.  Which brings us to his guns-blazing Venus Uranus conjunction.  Venus (personal charm) is fused with Uranus (the rule breaker/ outlaw!) and they are in fiery courageous Aries in the first house (personal style/identity).  This piece of dynamite is squared by Pluto, which blows it up even bigger with empowerment from the 5th house (the house of self expression).

images

Cash the outlaw. This picture is worth a thousand words to describe Uranus/Venus in Aries square Pluto.

His Jupiter is in Leo, bringing a restoration of faith through play and spontaneous fun (Leo).  Humor wedges it’s way into the tumultuous terrain of emotional bullets with songs like “A Boy Named Sue”.

So Happy Birthday to The Man in Black!  Hello, he’s Johnny Cash!  Thank you a million times over you beautiful man!

Happy Birthday James Dean!

James Dean, the epitome of cool.  Let’s have a look at some key components that carve out this coolness, shall we?
Data Deluxe #1.  You never know what he’s going to do. Dean has Uranus tightly conjunct his Ascendant, fusing his identity (Ascendant) with a rebellious and contrarian spirit (Uranus).  He’s just DIFFERENT (Uranus again) than the other actors of his time- or anytime!  Watching him brings about an awareness of a wild unpredictability (Uranus).  I remember seeing a scene from “East of Eden” (my favorite of his 3 movies) where James Dean and the other actor are in a locker room discussing the lucrative prospective of growing beans.  The one actor is very focused on what he is saying, meanwhile Dean is kind of hopping all around the locker room, climbing up on benches and down again and at times zeroing in close on the other actor’s personal space.  At one of these invasively close moments the other actor exclaims (in a very natural reactive way) “don’t get so close I’ll get all hot again!”.  I would put good money down saying that that line is NOT in the script.  I could be wrong but I doubt it. The point being that Dean doesn’t care.  He doesn’t care if he is making the other actor uncomfortable, or jeopardizing the script, or coming across a little looney.  He is being natural to his own whims, like a child, without being irritating (maybe a little bit to that actor).

020811-fine-wine-james-dean-05

Dean does things his own way

#2.  He knows his influences. Before Dean was famous he was writing letters upon letters to Marlon Brando.  He was enchanted by Brando in every way.  Brando rode a motorcycle so Dean rode a motorcycle.  Brando dressed in jeans and white T-shirts so Dean dressed in jeans and white T-shirts.  Brando played the bongos so Dean played the bongos.  The emulating got to be so much that Brando wrote HIM a letter saying “You have to be YOU, not ME”. But Dean knew that what Brando was doing was starting a new wave in human culture (Brando is a double Aries, a pioneer).  James Dean has an Aquarius Sun in the eleventh, which is the house naturally associated with Aquarius.  Aquarius seeks to identify itself by challenging the status quo, and seeking other like-minded people.  The eleventh is the field of life where those like-minded relationships take place.  It’s interesting to wonder if there would have been a James Dean had there been no Brando.

Marlon-Brando-James-Dean-Leather-Biker-Of-The-Realm

Hailing in the new wave of cool, Brando and Dean.

#3.  He shows his vulnerable side. As stated in a previous post “The Crying Game: Water planets and the comfortability in expressing emotion” James Dean has his Moon in deep and mysterious feeling-oriented Scorpio.  When he cries, the audience FEELS it.  It’s REAL. The beginning of “Rebel Without A Cause” features Dean falling down drunk on the street next to a wind-up toy monkey.  As the credits roll, he plays around with the monkey and it quickly becomes a deep emotional connection between the two of them.  The monkey amuses him with it’s wind-up talents and then Dean tucks him in with a ratty newspaper “blanket” and a party ribbon trash thing for a pillow.  He makes sure the monkey is comfortable and then he snuggles up as close to it as he can get.  The sweetness comes across SO genuine!  It’s the first 5 seconds of the movie and he’s already won our hearts!!  And yes, he improvised the whole bit, as the cast and crew stared on with admiration.

Opening moments of “Rebel Without a Cause”

#4.  He shows a strong sense of personal authority. Astrologer Caroline Casey, author of “Making the Gods Work for You” (get it get!!) talks about how the word “cool” is derived from the Yoruba word which originally meant “responsible”.  “Cool-headed” meant that that person took care of what he should.  Like Babe Ruth with his leaf of cabbage under his ball cap.  Keeping cool-headed so he can hit the home runs.  This is Saturn talk. Saturn is authority, which starts with inner authority.  Self composure, steadiness, a sureness in what you say and do.  James Dean has a very powerful Saturn in the 10th house of career (the house naturally associated with Saturn).  It is in Capricorn (the SIGN naturally associated with Saturn) and it is opposed (bringing in a full awareness of) the powers of Pluto.  Anything Pluto touches in empowered, or it is wounded UNTIL it is empowered.

jamesdean225.jpg.html

Sureness. Self-composer. In tune with his own rhythm.

Happy Birthday, James Dean.  A true rebel with a deep and mysterious heart, forever cool.

The Crying Game. Water planets and comfortability in expressing emotion.

I was thinking about scenes in movies when I didn’t quite feel the emotion that was being portrayed.  The big one that came to mind was the ending of “Seven” when Brad Pitt is in the cornfield asking Kevin Spacey “what’s in the box??” knowing full well that it is Gwyneth Paltrow’s severed head.

brad-pitt-se7en-seven-end-scene1

A bit of a misfire of relatable emotions (IMO)

Believe me, I am not knocking Brad Pitt.  I think he is a tour de force of an actor.  But this scene got me thinking about how some actors seem very natural and easy with expressing vulnerable emotions while others maybe not as much.

Brad Pitt’s chart shows no Water planets (except Neptune).  He is runs mostly on Earth and Fire.  My latest favorite movie with him was “World War Z”, and you better believe he was (in my opinion) EXTREMELY effective at displaying a courageous (Fire) hero who gets the job done (Earth).

I also think Brad Pitt is very effective conveying deep emotions BUT, usually this is done by an UNDERSTATED approach.  A subtle look, or a quick tear up, but NOT a prolonged cry-fest.  A prolonged cry-fest is hard to make look authentic, UNLESS you have some Water planets to help you out.

Everyone has emotions, just like everyone has a Moon their natal chart.  Water planets don’t give people more emotion but they DO (ideally) make EXPRESSING emotion a bit more comfortable and natural.  This is especially true with Scorpio, because Scorpio is all about emotional power and control.

images-6

James Dean let’s the feelings fly with Mars squaring his Scorpio Moon. He is completely comfortable in showing vulnerability which works to set him in a league of his own and pave the way for future actors.

Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughey has both his Sun and Mercury in Scorpio. Not only does he emote with wild abandon when needed, he also has the habit of taking up character role that talk (Mercury) about the endless mysterious of life (Scorpio)

Compare these Scorpio cry-looks to some Cancer cry-looks.

Tom Hanks’ Cancer Moon makes us want to hug him and tell him everything will be alright. Cancer emotions being expressed can bring out the “awww” in most of us.

On the other end of the Pisces emotional spectrum is that of the “victim” which Jon Hamm displays here (Sun and Mercury in Pisces)

Actors who do not have Water planets, when faced with a role that needs to display emotion will often naturally take a SUBDUED approach.

movies_the_descendants_george_clooney

George Clooney has no Water planets (except Neptune) but he gets the emotion across with stillness (Taurus Sun) and a perceived stoic groundedness (double Earth).

Or restort to other methods…

No-Water planeted Al Pacino expresses anger with ease thanks to the Fire in his chart. When it comes to expressing vulnerability a tactic like covering the face can help the awkward process.

Here comes the Sun: Knowing your life energy. Part 2- Water

Your Sun sign keys you into understanding the fundamental energy that you run on.  There are four basic different categories of this energy: Earth, Water, Air and Fire.  Start with understanding your element and then move on to understand it’s specific qualities within your sign.

Today we are looking at Water energy.

Water energy is emotional and feeling oriented.  This energy is tuned into subtleties like no other.  Water runs the deepest of the four- it is the most inward.  It needs privacy at times to refuel.  Like Earth, it is Yin therefore it is geared more towards receiving than projecting outward.  Water reminds us how much takes place below the surface.

deep-water-live-hd-wallpapers-2-3-s-307x512

Water energy runs deep, bringing in elements of the subconscious.

Breaking Water down further into the Modes we get:

Cardinal Water: Cancer.  Cardinal energy INITIATES.  Think about this inward emotional energy and add that concept of initiation and that can bring us naturally to family and early home- where most of our emotional energy was INITIATED.  Cancer energy yearns to attain emotional security.

Henry_David_Thoreau

Double Cancer, Henry David Thoreau built a home on Emerson’s land where he stayed and wrote “Walden Pond”. He spent his days tuning into a quieter and more simple way of life to better understand society and human development.

Fixed Water: Scorpio.  Fixed energy MAINTAINS.  Now this inward feeling oriented energy is being maintained and we can be brought to the idea sacred emotional unions.  “I like this feeling- I want to keep it.  I want to STAY here and explore”.

Georgia O’Keefe has Scorpio stellium (cluster of planets) including her Sun and Moon, all on the Ascendant. Her identity (ASC) is very much consumed with deep emotional power, often integrating symbols of death into vivid color schemes. This stellium is opposed by Pluto and Neptune adding a profound (Pluto) transcendental tone (Neptune).

Mutable Water: Pisces.  Mutable energy ADAPTS, CHANGES, and REFINES.  The subtle feeling energy now is ready to adjust and improve hence we are brought to such concepts as compassion and forgiveness.  The sensitivity is refined and reaching always to attain new heights.

alexander-mcqueen-and-model

Alexander McQueen has his Sun and Moon in Pisces in the self expressive 5th house. His fashion designs reflect Pisces’ ever evolving rich imagination in search of the sublimely beautiful. His Sun is opposite Pluto bringing in that sense of the profound.

The wonderful 8th house Scorpio Moon of Jimmy Fallon

Again and again when I tune into The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon I am struck by the magic that happens between him and his guests. There is a true sense of child’s play, like they are actually getting lost in the fun- something you just don’t see ordinarily.

Data Deluxe

Fallon’s chart

With a Virgo Sun in the 7th, (as well as just about everything else) he is naturally tuned into the balance that takes place during social exchange.  This is highlighted by a very strong Venus on the 7th cusp.  The Virgo energy settles into an comfortable groove of humility and makes sure to not waste anyone’s time. Add in his Scorpio Moon and we have all of this precise social energy fueling the emotional need to merge with others, to get deep together.

His Scorpio Moon is in the 8th house which pretty much puts the word Scorpio in neon lights because it is the natural ruler of the 8th. Opposite the 2nd house (what I have) the 8th house is what WE have. With Fallon, it’s what he AND Jake Gyllenhaal have when they play a card game of war where the winner gets to dump a glass of water on the loser. It’s what he AND Blake Shelton have when they go face to face in a karaoke battle.

We are watching delightful social alchemy (another 8th house word). And it’s interesting to see such lightness in a moon sign/placement so commonly associated with dark and brooding characteristics.

His Sun/Moon blend is a double yin- earth and water. I see this reflected in his tendency to not have to LEAD his guests too much. He is more about REACTING to them, and RECEIVING their energy, not dominating it. There is a real natural relaxation that is brought forth this way.

He seems to truly love his guests. It’s a far reaching non judging open armed kind of love. Very fitting to his Jupiter in Pisces on the Ascendant. His own personal reward (Jupiter) being ignited in expressing (Ascendant) all-accepting love (Pisces).

Clearly I’m a fan of the show.
