Scorpio Stellium: The Moon Meets Venus and Mars

Keen Category: Astrology Advice

The moon, Mars and Venus with the constellation of Scorpio

In astrology, it is common for two planets to occupy the same point in the zodiac. This is called a conjunction. When a third heavenly body moves into position, it is called a stellium. This is a powerful moment as any planetary energy applies consistent pressure as it moves through the zodiac. While conjunctions amplify the gravity of the situation, a stellium can bring about intense transformations in a short period of time. The zodiac sign that hosts a stellium always gives us indicators of what to expect from this occurrence and the planets involved in this get-together reveal what energy is coming our way.

On October 9, there will be a stellium in the sky as the Moon joins Venus and Mars in the zodiac sign of Scorpio for a few hours. This is a meeting of the three most passionate heavenly bodies in the solar system. As the Moon moves through the zodiac, it visits Scorpio for two to three days every month. It gets together with each planet for half a day at some point every month. But it is rare for the Moon to get together with Venus and Mars at the same time and even rarer for this to occur in the sexiest sign of the zodiac. Yes, Scorpio is the place from which our deepest moments of sensuality emanate. That is what makes this stellium such a special few hours.

Consider: The Moon, ruler of our emotional nature is getting together with Mars, the planet that rules masculinity and assertiveness, and Venus, the planet that rules femininity and love. And this get-together is taking place in the zodiac sign that signifies our most private passions. Surely October 9, 2010 is the sexiest day of the decade.

Will it be your day to remember? You can be taken to the highest heights of romantic ecstasy and physical pleasure. The downside of this concentration is something to consider as well. Scorpio is the sign of secretive behavior and revenge. If a lover is not telling you the whole truth, something might slip out that you don't want to hear. If you have your eyes and heart already set on a conquest, there could be someone else ready to make sure you leave unsatisfied. Scorpio energy is the most intense in all the zodiac, so the three-planet combination pushes that force out at a level where everyone can feel it. On October 9, love and lust, desire and revenge will be the pulse of the day.

In Europe, this stellium occurs on Saturday night. It will be an evening of passion. In the United States, the stellium occurs primarily in the afternoon. If you are in Europe, make sure you have a date who can stay out late. In the Western Hemisphere of the globe, you are advised to stay close to your Friday date and see if you can build carryover energy from that night. Perhaps a kiss before the lights go out on Friday will be revisited as an afternoon delight between you two on Saturday.

The stellium's earliest energy begins after sunset in the Western Hemisphere on Friday night, October 8. It is at its peak power, though, on Saturday afternoon for six and a half hours beginning at 1:35 PM on the east coast and 10:35 AM on the west coast, and lasting until 8:06 PM (EDT) and 5:06 PM (PDT). The planetary energy lasts well into the night. In fact, it is not until after sunrise on Sunday, October 10 that the Moon will have moved far enough away from Venus and Mars to leave them as just a mere conjunction of two planets. So in all that time, you will have the opportunity for the greatest physical passion encounter of the decade.
