Happy All Hallow's Eve, All You Ghouls and Goblins, Witches and Gypsies!


I love, love, love this day of the year!

I really just use Hallowe'en as an excuse to wear temporary tattoos, fishnet stockings, and glamourous make-up looks.

Happy Hallowe'en, Merry Samhain, and Enjoy the Entrance into the Dark Half of the Year from your anarchist astro-reporter (and "slightly slutty witch" for my shift at the redneck bar tonight), Willow.

We are under the influence of a lovely and ethereal Grand Water Trine today with the Moon at home in Cancer, the Sun in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces. This makes for a very strong spirit component. The spooky/otherworldly vibe we know and love on Hallowe'en is emphasized even further under this Grand Water Trine. The veil between worlds is even thinner. Interesting things can happen with this much water in the skies.

Have a safe and enjoyably spooky night, all!

A Couple Welcome Shifts With a Side of Mutual Reception Relational Angst as We Close Out 2015

Fall Colours
Photos: Willow

We have a couple energetic shifts on the horizon, which should provide an interesting change, if not relief, exactly.

Taskmaster planet Saturn is currently moving through the tail-end of its retrograde shadow at 3 and 4 degrees Sagittarius and will move into fresh degrees of the zodiac on November 8. As of November 8, Saturn will be in a sort of "clear progress zone," moving through most of the rest of the first decan of Sagittarius in one pass only (from November 8 to December 19, 2015).

This indicates that we are coming into a period of time when we can accomplish some very big things and set down some very important stepping stones - if we are willing to work for our progress. This is as unencumbered as Saturn's movement gets, so let's make good use of it.

This also indicates that there could be some powerful completion and resolution events occurring (internally and/or externally) during the first week of November as Saturn finishes up in the retrograde shadow. Watch for opportunities to lay certain themes to rest - especially as we head into the 19-degree Scorpio New Moon on November 11 - cementing your footing and progress as you do so.

Saturn in early Sagittarius has been a bit tough. We've had a lot to chew on as we came to a point of truth, understanding, and ultimate meaning related to the dark and difficult experiences we've encountered over the past three years of Saturn in Scorpio in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn.

But now, as Saturn grinds out the last of the retrograde degrees, we're ready to move on. We're ready for new challenges and structure to take our minds off the sucking black holes we've dug ourselves out of. We've established that first foothold on the other side of Scorpio, on the other side of hell, and we're damn sure going to use it.

We can drop a great deal of the emotional and psychological load now if we can only set our sights on the new and more inspiring territory up ahead. We can move out of the sticky, suffocating tendrils of pitch black emotion and we can drop ties to people and scenarios that have hurt us. But we have to work for it (Saturn). We have to work for brighter skies and for more inspiring and optimistic times in our lives.

A Venus-Mars-Jupiter Conjunction in Virgo Sets a New (And More Low-Key) Tone

The planet of expansion, benefits, and wisdom, Jupiter, entered Virgo on August 11, 2015 where it has been quietly working away ever since.

With Greater Benefic Jupiter transiting practical and down-to-earth Virgo until September 2016, benefits are reaped for humility, attention to detail, efficiency, moderation, preparation, and hard work.

None of those things are naturally associated with Jupiter, however, a planet with the keywords: big, grand, expansive, jovial, and exuberant. Jupiter likes to go big or go home. It wants to drink the sweet, sweet nectar of every last experience it can experience on this planet...and then some.

But in Virgo, and with restrictive Saturn transiting Jupiter's sign of Sagittarius at the very same time, our lust for life has to be refined a little (or a lot, depending on the person and the degree of life-lusting we're talking about).

This year, while Jupiter is transiting Virgo, we're rewarded for putting health, work, and service considerations first.

We're rewarded for foregoing that last cocktail, that last doughnut, or that last hour of late-night reading in favour of some extra rest and rejuvenation. (We're rewarded even more if we cut our vices and indulgences out altogether...)

Virgo is a sign that loves to work. For the most part, it rests only so that it can get back to work. It takes care of health only so that it can be a lean, mean, optimum working machine.

("BOR-ING!" says Jupiter.)

Aloe Cadabra

I believe my readers are forward-thinking enough to handle this post, so here goes...

I recently found a great natural/organic product and was excited to learn that I can also sell and promote it myself.

It is a product called Aloe Cadabra, a natural and organic lubricant designed to enhance "adult love times" in the bedroom.

This stuff is the best!

There are no chemicals in it, and it is not greasy or sticky. It is made with 95% aloe vera, which has been used as a medicine and health aid for centuries. The other ingredients are all consumable, and it has been designed not to disrupt pH.

This product is good for anyone who wants to add a little something to their bedroom activities, but it is especially good for new mothers and menopausal or post-menopausal women.

It comes in Unscented (my fave) or Lavender scent, as well as Peppermint, Pina Coloda, and Tahitian Vanilla flavours.

According to the company, once opened, a bottle should be used within three months due to the lack of preservatives and chemicals (a good thing).  

There is free shipping in the United States if you purchase three or more bottles.

And if you use my affiliate coupon code at the online check-out, you will receive 25% off your first purchase:


I don't want to sound like an infomercial or anything, but I really am excited to be involved with this product. I would never use conventional brands of lubricant after trying Aloe Cadabra. 

If interested, please visit the website, and don't forget the coupon code:

A Check-In with the Asteroids

The major asteroids (along with dwarf planet Ceres) generally do their thing in the background of the primary astrological discourse. Becoming more strongly aware of their positioning in both the natal chart and in the current transits can illuminate their themes so that we can both support and be supported by the activity of these feminine bodies.

Earth Mother dwarf planet Ceres is currently moving direct through late Capricorn after a retrograde period from June 3 to September 14, 2015. This indicates that we nurture others most deeply now by taking care of business, and we are nurtured ourselves by those who do the same. We are nurtured and supported by those who keep a stiff upper lip, working diligently to get the job done, and we nurture others by displaying that same commitment to excellence. Responsibility, structure, and the successful meeting of goals, especially financial and business-related goals, are nourishing to us now. Ceres in Capricorn indicates that we are traversing areas where women or the feminine force can take stronger leadership roles, and this includes with food, agriculture, and purchasing power.

Women and the feminine force are coming into stronger authority within the structures as they exist. This is happening out of necessity more than anything else. This position is cemented as Ceres stationed direct at 25 degrees Capricorn on September 14, 2015, completing the transit of Capricorn October 27.
