Monday morning, Scorpio Mercury conjoins Pallas Athena. These two signal a time of mental clarity regardless, but in Scorpio this conjunction is crafty. It confers the ability to sniff out hidden facts and turn them into gold.
The two continue on together into next week when Venus overtakes them in the run-up to Halloween. As they say, keep you eyes and ears open.

The risks are twofold: prettying up something sketchy or ignoring something important. However, the pros are formidable too. There’s no better influence to improve and pack in value to your Scorpio visions.
When Venus overtakes Mercury next week, it moves ahead free of the Neptune fog. It’s part of the process. If we didn’t overshoot what’s possible, we’d never light on the best plan we could manage.
Scorpio Venus spends the rest of this week moving into sextile to Pluto. Manipulation gets a bad reputation for good reasons. However, we all manipulate to some extent.

Wednesday, the Leo Moon sextiles the last degree Libra Sun. The Moon approaches exact sextile as the Sun moves to Scorpio. Then the Moon moves to Virgo and through exact sextile to the Scorpio Sun.

Friday early, the Moon squares Jupiter. There’s a lot. A lot of what? To do, to think, to feel. Just start and it will even out. The Moon goes on to sextile Virgo ruler Mercury. Whistle while you work and you’ll work smarter. Later, the Moon moves to Libra and an opposition to Chiron as Venus moves toward its exact sextile with Pluto. An airy, social mood is poised to receive something real and vulnerable from others and create harmony. It’s a scary position to inhabit; but we can do it with a smile when we believe in our power to transmute what we encounter. And we do have that power. Use it.
Is that power manipulation? Yes, it is, the good kind. Healers use this kind of energy.
