Starcodes Nov 3, 2023

Although we’re out of the recent eclipse pattern, our world stays wild. We might see some interesting aurora borealis next week, our roiling Sun is hitting the height of its solar flare cycle, creating sunspots every day this year along with another mass coronal ejection on Halloween due to hit Earth this weekend. An active Sun turns the volume up on our volatile history and amplifies all astrological configurations.

This energy pours into two competing astrological configurations this week. While most of us will just get grumpy and busy, the hotspots of the world will feel this extra fuel pour in. We can choose to add to the fire or find a compassionate way to respond.

On the difficult side, the Sun and Mars conjunct in Mars’ own intense side of Scorpio as both planets start to oppose electrical, erratic Uranus in Taurus, an aspect which peaks November 11. Mars opposes Uranus every couple of years and turns the volume up on mechanical ingenuity, conflict, aggression, competition, and athletic prowess. We can choose to compete against our personal best or towards our most urgent goals and use this assertive energy wisely. But if we don’t give it someplace constructive to go, accidents increase when we’re in a mood and our snarky edges can hurt feelings. So give that Mars a good task.
