10/27 ~ This is a special day energetically. Mercury Retrograde is re-entering Libra, asking us to continue the review process. In Scorpio, you may have been sifting through emotions & feelings that need to be processed, but the vibration is shifting to our ideas, thoughts & concepts of balance, harmony & cooperative relationships of all kinds. We need to re-think how we interact with each other and come up with new ways that are more effective in the here & now. The same day, Venus moves into Libra too so we are blessed to have our Sacred Feminine guiding the rest of the retrograde and she’s in her home sign, which makes her even stronger. We should be guided by our hearts and holding the vision of balance for all life. Right now we have extremes playing out internally, externally & environmentally so the more we can hold our own center during changing or transitional times, the more likely we can come through to the other side with some kind of new wisdom & understanding.
10/18 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides.
10/11 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Jupiter (imagination & truth):
This is a powerful energy and with that comes the necessity of discernment – it provokes you to get lots of things accomplished and that’s a good thing, however, beware of taking on more than you can actually handle. Having said that now, if you need that little “push” to get some things done, this is just the energy for you. It carries with it the optimism necessary to allow you to go beyond your norm and stretch in new ways.
Libra energy is best for evaluating all your relationships, collaborations & partnerships, personal or business. Are things fair & balanced? Most relationships are rarely “equal”, but how do you feel about the exchange of energy or reciprocity at this time? Is there any kind of imbalance? That should be your focus this month. Libra energy helps us see all sides of an issue or our lives, and this energy gives us the capacity to access a win/win situation if we only open up to the possibilities and be more receptive to teamwork. Get out of selfish Aries—it’s all about ME-mode, consider what would the most beautiful & inspiring and what would best serve all involved and voila’ – you are using Libra energy the way it was intended.
10/4 ~ Pluto Direct 22* CAPRICORN:
Pluto is in a long, evolutionary & transformative process (2008-2024) and it’s traveling through the Capricorn sector of your chart, digging deep and activating any other planets you may have in Capricorn (and/or Cancer/Aries/Libra by default). So, it’s good to look at this as an on-going purification & transformation of this department in life (and, subsequently the other three areas too). Pluto moves generations and great numbers of people along their evolutionary path, however, every year when it retrogrades, it turns that energy inward, giving us unique access to our own depths, where our SoulSelf resides. When it goes forward, like today, it is a very gradual awakening process that develops from there.
