Right now we have a big trine in fire that can create a guiding light. This light can take you down memory lane to forgotten important keys and portals of understanding. The trine of fire is created by Vesta (devotion, priest, priestess) in Leo, the south node (karma, the past) in Sagittarius and Mars (drive, will) and Lilith Black Moon in Aries.
Vesta can show where we are devoted, what our inner fire is burning for. She has a connection to both Virgo and Scorpio, the later giving her influence over how we express our sexuality. Now in Leo, Vesta gives fire to what makes you unique and special. You may feel a stronger need to be seen by your partner, so now is the time to do something special together. Make reality of that planned date night!
If sex has not been on the priority list lately with mars retrograde, then here are some sparkles! The south node takes us back in time to what has been, and sometimes karma. This figuration (Vesta, Mars, Lilith Black Moon, south node in the fire signs) can help to heal sexual wounds, to embrace your own beauty and uniqueness and to dare to shine bright. It is also a great time for making incense, oils and candles for love, sex and passion. Just be aware of the Mars and Lilith Black Moon conjunction that makes things go deep and dark very easily, so a light touch of the heavy stuff goes a long way.
What You Promised to Do
Vesta is very strong on holding promises and keeping vows. Do you remember what you have promised to do? With the connection to the south node, we all get a reminder and we do well to stop and listen before we proceed.
Perhaps you made a promise to never let anyone else put you down (fire) to never be bullied again (Mars), or to never keep silent when things aren´t okey? (Lilith Black Moon). Perhaps you have made a promise to spirit? To keep a flame of something special going? (Vesta). Now is the time to go back to your journal books, dream books and magickal record keeping. Look out for alliances and promises made, especially those made in a ceremonial setting or through an initiation.
Finding that trail of information might just be the knowledge that you need right now to proceed in beauty on your road ahead. If you don´t remember the oaths that you have made, the Universe might make sure that you remember and follow up on it.
You could also be receiving unexpected help from your past. A person from your past, or simply good favours and energies that are returned back to you. This could extend beyond this lifetime and be something from a past incarnation. Pay attention to dreams, signs and visions as they may provide important information. Unexpected people and opportunities can show up.
This big trine of fire is until around the 16th of October.
Now is a great time for Swedish fika with friends. Mercury (communication, friends, siblings) is together with the asteroid Juno (relationships) in the sign of Scorpio. This amplifies deep conversation about meaningful things. They are also in a good aspect to Venus (love) in Virgo that brings understanding and the ability to analyse. You may be surprised by the good things and transformations that could come from these meetings. So call a friend and get some coffee. If you meet IRL remember to keep distance!
If you have been thinking about seeking couples therapy or regular therapy now can be a extra good time to get started with that. Any kind of investigation or project that needs analysing or deep research will get extra help from this configuration. The beneficial aspect between Mercury and Venus ends around the 14th of October. Mercury and Juno travels together until around the 23rd of October.
