The New Moon in Libra inspires the first feelings of seasonal changes in the wind today. Venus in Virgo forms a loose out of sign conjunction to the lunation bringing with her a need for change in our daily habits and schedules. Take it easy on the feelings of needing and wanting to have everything your way or the highway. This is off-putting to your closest connection. Long overdue social breakthroughs are tossed into the public view. This is apparent in my home state of Florida where the issue of medical marijuana is already written into law however, for some idiotic reason it is on the voting ballot. This is a result of Saturn in Scorpio squaring Jupiter in Leo. The whole thing is hilarious to me.
Saturn represents authority and the government and while in the sign of the scorpion, indeed stands to gain a great deal from this change. Meanwhile, Jupiter squaring Saturn in the sign of the lion, absolutely insists on having headlines in the news. My take on it is that of course this is going through. Florida is so in need of subsidy and an infusion of getting into the 21st century! I predict a rise in the value of properties, new jobs on the market and a much needed changing of the guard and belief systems in the political area. I know Bill Maher is working to “flip districts” and I see this as a step in flipping the state. Uranus in Aries is trine to Jupiter fueling this power play with rainbow tie-die and a deep inhale!
September 27 Mercury the messenger dives into the depths of Scorpio where he curls up and prepares to stay for a retrospective retrograde. His back-peddling begins October 4 and lasts through the next New Moon until October 25. I advise you to spend more time in silent stillness and the meditative state. I am available to teach you in private sessions either by phone or in person, so contact me today!
Venus floats into the sign of the scales September 29 generating a strong craving for our relationships to be harmonious and peaceful. Those of you who have creative outlets find the time and energy to pull them out of their storage spaces and enjoy the process of constructing. Venus love beautiful things and insists on an upgrade, continuing the theme of the month. Take care to not overdue indulge by filling the empty spaces you had created at the beginning of the Lunar month.
October 4, Mercury begins his final retrograde for 2014 in the sign of Scorpion. As always it is a good idea to back up your machines and files. For some of us this is taking shape in the way of renewing equipment. It is a good feeling to catch things before they go completely fubar. The added influence of the Scorpion is to urge us more deeply into self-study.
Our Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aries October 8, is conjunct Uranus causing spontaneous combustion. Keep your cool as best you can. The fires of this event are fanned further by a grand trine with Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo. Where this falls in your personal chart determines whether you are going down in flames, shining like a Super Nova or radiating magnificent love to all you meet. To add more alchemy to the month, Pluto squares the lunation adding his brand of intensity to our emotions. Fortunately Jupiter provides his good favor encouraging us to find the spirited side of the situation.
Mercury backs up into Libra just after midnight October 11, which can be very helpful for those of you who have lost your sense of direction. If it hasn’t begun already you are going to meet up with some long lost friends. This reconnection is integral in your evolution. He continues to illuminate past relationship issues and gives you opportunity to get things right.
October 23 the Sun enters the sign of Scorpio insisting that we dive as deeply as possible into our emotions. The best way to be an observer is in the peaceful silence of meditation. Do not let yourself go too far in any one direction but rather find the middle road as in the teachings of the Buddha.
“Tune us the Sitar neither high nor low, and we will dance away the hearts of men. But the string too tight breaks and the music dies. The string too slack has no sound, and the music dies. There is a middle way. Tune us the Sitar neither low nor high. And we will dance away the hearts of men.” — An ancient song that inspired The Buddha
The New Moon in Libra inspires us to build bridges and then venture across to find a new facet of our being. I wish you a beautiful month of enjoyment! For those of you in Pennsylvania, I am going to be in New Hope October 15-22 giving book signings, speaking and teaching at Pebble Hill Church and available for private consultations. Contact me to arrange yours!
I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21
Have fun and tap into your inner child. Be spontaneous and say yes to all travel offers both great and small. Over-thinking relationships only lessens the chance of landing a great opportunity. The choice is yours. This carries over into business relationships and the longer you procrastinate the less your chances of scoring big. Drop your ego and opt for professional advice to sort through all of this. It is of the utmost importance to curb your anger. Anger is your biggest enemy. Reach out for help and learn new ways to calm the inner beast.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
Recent relationships issues are up for reevaluation giving forth an opportunity to renew or liberate yourself. The choice is your. The only jailer is the mind and you have the opportunity right now to wake up and smell the roses or continue to muck through the past. New work opportunities present themselves and this is a great way to refocus your attention to the positive. Deep and darker colored emotions are stirring in your psyche. It is up to you what type of picture they paint. Mind your tongue and take responsibility for your words as they indeed construct the reality ahead.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
Take a lot more time to evaluate and comb through all daily tasks and conversations. Acting and reacting quickly prove to be self-sabotaging. You are usually better at this and the fact that you potentially are zooming to fast without seeing the details has you flummoxed. Adding to the unusual intensity are rumbles and shifts in the friendships you had viewed as stable. This is indeed unusual and not what you are used to. Strap on your wings and fly above the chaos. You are going to get through this but take the warning and prepare yourself for a bumpy flight.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
Work is on the up rise so be sure you are organized and getting proper rest and nutrition. This helps you to keep up with the steady current. Just when you are starting to feel in the groove and on top of it all, a major change occurs. Rather than getting all in a twist or retreating in order to try to avoid this, it is best to prepare and face it head on. These changes are all for the good of your future. Accept all the offers including those that seem out of bounds at first. Reach far beyond your comfort zone. New attractions float in disguised as lovers and wrapped in the cloak of creative projects. Treat them nicely and welcome them into your inner sanctum for the best results.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
Hold off on big moves and grand gestures in order to really size up the current prospects. Your happiness level potential shoots through the roof only if you find a way to rope in your energy and slow down. Once in a pace of stillness new people come into focus that are gathering and await passage into your inner circle. The wait is definitely worth it. Use your surplus of energy to clean up around the house. Let go of items no longer needed and watch as you release these, how you feel cleansed at many levels. This creates much needed space for you to make good decisions about the immediate future.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
Your creativity is peaking enticing you to take hold of all the possibilities available. Slow your pace down in order to read into the messages and signs as they fly into your vision field. You stand to gain a great deal from increases, windfalls and investments. Keep your head held high and practice feeling deserving to ensure the highest imaginable gain. It is really up to you how much you obtain. This includes all angles and endeavors in the finance sectors. Those of you about to take the deep plunge into intimate relationships need only to have clear communication in order to assure a long-lasting and solid outcome.
Libra September 23/ 24 to October 23/24
You find it irresistible to plunge headfirst into a radical makeover. Be sure to talk this out with your closest friends and family so as to not create surprises. Just as you are initiating the elements of shock factor, you begin to notice others are doing the same thing to you. Changes are happening in unusual sequences with no rhyme or reason. You have no choice but to go with it. Look at the dissolution of relationships as necessary. There is nothing you can do to save them. Acceptance is the best choice to help you move forward and await the next choices.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
Your dreams and visions begin to conjure the details of your new position and the approaching birth of a new relationship. Now is the time to sort through what you really want, so as to guarantee the best choice when presented with prospects. Remember that relationships happen at many levels including environment, career and of course love. Dive deeply into the project you left simmering on the back burner. Drop everything to invest extended time and watch as the payoff rolls back exponentially. If a few old bumps resurface, it is up to you whether you want to make them into mountains or take advantage of revisiting the surface for a final look.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
The opportunity to connect with a new group must be met with a resounding yes. This is your ticket to the ride you have wanted to catch for your career. Sink extra time into increasing your social media presence. The more you visualize the results, the easier they materialize. Your wishes and dreams are in the forefront so be sure to set time aside to focus on them. Use the tail end of your recent burst of energy to set a positive pattern for the coming months. Unexpected news sweeps you off your feet. Take time to process it before throwing yourself back into all of your commitments.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
Rebalance your career choices and communications. If work has you traveling to foreign lands be sure to have all the tools you need on hand to tidy up your projects. Take time to clean up your personal life before you launch. Having this fly up while you are anywhere but on your home turf creates stress. A new wave of consciousness washes over you. Put this to good use by revisiting and reviewing your preparations and presentations. The good news is you chose not to blow up. Though holding onto this creates a weighty obstacle, it is paying off in the long run.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
Thank goodness you love the strange and unusual because you are getting an extra-large helping of it now. Explore the extraneous spiritual choices being offered. The financial subsidy you have hoped for is coming through. In order to put it to good use be prepared with the necessary tools for networking. Take care to honor your boundaries so as to not fry your circuits. The seeds you had scattered over the last few months have taken root. Be sure they are nurtured and be grateful for their fruitful gifts. When we give we receive, therefor go ahead and be the philanthropist. You are sure to reap the benefits.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
A sudden need for your total commitment arises and fortunately you have a great storehouse of energy to devote to the demand. Rather than fighting the prevailing changes, choose to relax and allow the shifts to occur. If need be, permit the authoritarians to have their way. There is no use in fighting this. Look at the letting go as a means to lighten up and let the necessary space of change happen. Be extra careful with backup plans and creative exit routes. Use your power of attraction to get you through this.
