This week, as the earth moves in harmony through the sign of Libra, take time and enjoy the colors of the season. Not only do we have the beautiful autumn colors of vegetation and plant life, but also, the light of October is particularly elegant.
Libra is the season of ultimate balance, and it is said that the ancient Egyptians only weighed their harvest during the time of the full moon in Libra.
Connect with your inner compass now, and come to a place of peace and equilibrium.
Take time each day to appreciate all that is beautiful in your environment. Libra is also associated with the finer qualities of Venus, such as art and music. To fully celebrate this month of Libra, tale take time each day to wrap yourself in something cozy, turn on the music, and get in tune with your own inner Light.
Maintain that connection with your inner peace, because this is also a great month, and week, to break new ground. What is special about October is that the planets are ‘talking’ to each other this month.
Venus in Virgo
Venus enters Virgo on October 8th. Although in her ‘fall’ in Virgo, Venus here is noted for her powers of magnetism. Venus teaches now that the way to get what you want is to attract it; to draw it towards you. Venus in Virgo is less personal than Venus in Leo, but yet, can become more connected.
‘Magnetism is a force, but it has no energy of its own’. David Cohen-Tanugi/ MIT Energy Club
Spiritually, magnetism is a process that you use to draw the right people; your perfect clients, your right partner. And, it’s not all about you; rather, it’s about the alignment. Magnetism is also a tool that you can use to protect yourself, to be one with Spirit and surround yourself with Light through right actions and thoughts.
Venus and Mars are moving closer together day by day and will be exactly conjunct on November 2nd. And, Venus and Jupiter will also be exactly conjunct on the 25th of this month, October. These planetary alignments serve humans by helping unite your ‘Free Will Choice’ with your Life Purpose.
Plus, Jupiter trine Pluto, exact on October 11th, helps you get organized. Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Pluto all working together this month insures that you can monetize your efforts. So, embrace the beauty and live in your divine essence, but prepare to move ahead as a spiritual warrior.
What’s Going On – the week of October 5th
We begin this week with the moon in Cancer, a sign associated with home and family.
Cancer is also a cardinal, or action starting sign; however, the moon is void of course, which means it doesn’t interact with any other planets until Tuesday. The void of course moon can be de-stabilizing because it leaves you feeling like things aren’t ready; in other words, it’s easy to put your tasks off until tomorrow.
As a wise person who applies the wisdom of astrology, take this information and stay on task because Tuesday comes on strong!
On October 6th we have three major planetary aspects; Sun square Pluto, Mercury sextile Saturn, and Mars opposing Neptune. The most difficult one is the last – Mars opposing Neptune (aka: ‘why did YOU DO that?’), because this is an aspect that can bring up problems, and leave you feeling like there is no resolution.
The opposition usually appears to be about the ‘other’. For example, you feel that your problem is caused by something that somebody else did or did not do – but, the resolution has to be about what YOU do. This is the challenge.
Use the dynamic energy of Tuesday to focus on building (Mercury sextile Saturn) new structures; the old ones are being brought down on their own (Sun square Pluto). Without forethought and planning, you go into warrior mode, leaving spirit behind and reaping only destruction. A better idea is: just make a new plan.
There is more good news for this week – Mercury stations direct on Friday, October 9th. Ah, I can hear the collective sigh of relief- hands and eyes raised to the heavens as we all give thanks for a slight return to normalcy in this crazy world. With your old relationship issues figured out, you now move ahead with your head on straight. Right?
We have another epic void of course cycle. This one, lasting 34 hours, begins Friday afternoon (3:23 PT) , it goes all day Saturday; ending Sunday at 1:46 am PT.
Wake Up & Smell the Roses
Don’t let this void of course (v/c) energy devour your energy or you’re going to miss all the good stuff.
Think of it as the big planets are moving under the cover of darkness – positioning and getting ready for a big win. You can too – I see you as a winner, a hero, and a champion.
