Welcome to October 2019! As we begin the month of October, the cardinal energies are strong and potent. Cardinal signs( Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) are all about: forward movement, willpower and initiation. We are ready to create and step into a new direction with faith and trust. There is a calmness in the air but beneath the surface, there are many hidden forces waiting to be revealed. This will become more apparent as we move later into the month.
On October 2nd/3rd, Pluto, the planet of: power, destruction and transformation, turns direct at 20 degrees of Capricorn. For the last 6 months, while in retrograde motion, Pluto has been revealing what hidden motives and structures needed to be healed and rectified. Intense emotions around control and power became apparent and hard to ignore. Now in direct motion, Pluto in Capricorn, wants to take those revelations and externalize them, into a solid foundation of truth and mastery. What was hidden could suddenly become visible and the dwarf planet, now direct, asks you to embrace and own a new source of divine wisdom and power.
Moving to mid- month, on October 13th, we have the Full Moon at 20 degrees of Aries. Full moons bring deep feelings to the surface and herald: completions, manifestations and endings. Aries, the 1st zodiac sign, is all about: strength, self- will, courage, passion and drive. The Full Moon in Aries will increase our desire to begin a new chapter in our emotional journey. There is a freshness of energy that wants to be created. Fiery and passionate displays are possible at this Full moon. There could also be the tendency for selfishness and childish like behavior, as these are the lower vibrations of the ram energy. Taking the bull by the horn and re-claiming our independence will be major themes of this Full Moon. We will need to make sure we are being objective and patient to balance out the heat and flames of this fiery full moon.
On October 23rd, the Sun, which represents our: vitality,ego and life force, shifts from the airy and balanced sign of Libra over to the watery and deep sign of Scorpio. Our senses are ready to go deeper and look below the surface to examine hidden truths and vibrations. Scorpio, the 8th zodiac sign is anything but surface level and is known for: depth, power, sexual prowess and transformation. On October 27th, we have the New Moon at 4 degrees of Scorpio. New moons signify: beginnings, initiations, and fresh starts. The Scorpio New Moon is all about getting real and diving deep into our hidden power. The phoenix wants to rise from the ashes. Being radically reborn is the main theme, and we are ready to passionately embrace our vulnerability. A depth of purpose is calling our name and the universe is urging us to begin again, this time, with nothing hidden and with brutal honesty. No hiding out with this powerful doozy new moon.
Finally, at the end of the month, on October 31st, Mercury, the planet of: the mind, communication, and contracts, turns retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio. Conversations of depth will now occur. Anything that has been hidden or repressed is likely to become known and acknowledged. We will be asked to go deep within and skeletons and people from the past could re-appear. Haywire with travel or business plans is likely at this time, so plan accordingly. Mercury retrograde in the deepest sign of the zodiac, will usher in an awakening of our inner mental powers, as well it is what is blocking these gifts. By the time he turns direct on November 20th, our minds would have gone through many little “deaths” in order to rise again, refreshed and transformed.
October 2019 is here to bring: balance, depth of purpose and powerful desires into our lives. The balance of intellect and instinct is strong this month. As we begin the month in the air element and end in the water element, things could at first, seem a bit foggy or unclear. Trust and patience within these transitions is important. We are ready to ground and at the same time, dig deeper to find hidden forces inside our soul. October 2019, wants you to not be afraid of your shadow. This month asks you to be compassionate and in a state of grace with your darker energies. This month is here to bring: balance between the light and the dark, the ability to rise again, and complete belief in the power of transformation.
