Sun, Mars and Venus have been closely conjunct in Scorpio for about 3 days now, and will remain within 8 degrees for about 12 more days. It is my duty as an astrologer to alert you to the bedroom potential of this aspect. While it's certainly an auspicious time for having a good shag, it's also a time when sex is good for making, or enhancing, real connections between people.
Halloween is in 5 days time, when the veil between this reality and the spirit world is said to be at its thinnest. With Sun, Mars, Venus conjunct in Scorpio on that day - and trine to Moon in Pisces - it is a time for Tantric sex, mystical sex, transcendent sex, if you are that way inclined. If you can get home early from work next Tuesday and into the bedroom pretty sharpish, you'll find Sun, Mars, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter all in Scorpio in the 8th House. If that doesn't get you out of the prison of isolated selfhood, at least for a moment, then nothing will. Sun, Mars and Venus are also square to Chiron, so there's healing potential as well.
The title of this piece may be enigmatic if you're not English. It refers to sex, and a time when fathers were much more proprietorial about their daughters than they are now. A father's opinion around his daughter meeting a particular man would have been much more important than it is nowadays.
On a different subject, has anyone noticed how kids these days are reluctant to leave home, whereas in our day we couldn't wait to be independent? It's certainly true in the UK that kids are leaving home later - well into their mid-twenties, quite often, and I don't think it's just because housing is more expensive. I don't know the reason. Did Pluto's passage through Libra produce a generation who had the advantages of a wealthy, stable, civilised upbringing, but who by the same token are afraid of surviving on their own? Pluto is where we look to for survival - so for those with Pluto in Libra (1971-84), they will look to civilised values and conditions for a sense of safety and continued survival. Living outside of the family home often means sacrificing some of that, at least for a while, and this may be instinctively threatening to them. I only have significant experience of one person from this generation, who fits the type, intelligent and urbane, but reluctant to become independent, and unwilling to take low-paid work ('shit-jobs') despite having no qualifications!
Obviously I don't mean all kids from Pluto in Libra are like this, or even most kids - perhaps just more than in the past.
