We sail into the month of October on the solar wings of Libra. This energetic signature rises to greet us with the openness and fullness of listening to a deeper way of kindness & love. Communication and social interaction are associated with the cardinal air sign of Libra.
The power of sacred intention offers the highest expression for all concerned as we acknowledge creative thoughts and supposed harmonious ideals within relationships. The greatest invitation is in the imperfection of being human and how we meet conflict.
“Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” RUMI
Venus, the Morning Star in her twinkling brilliance is visible out to the east before sunrise. She is dancing with the asteroid Juno for blessings of grace & fulfilment in both personal & business partnerships.
Mars, the ancient ruler of Scorpio moves into its home sign on 12th October and Pluto, the modern ruler is moving direct from 11th October. This change of vanguard potentially opens the emotional chasms of our hearts with the overwhelming rawness of our vulnerable nature exposed.
Mars in Scorpio also creates a magnetic intensity that can be dynamically channelled into navigating life challenges with great mastery & success. It has the ability to find strength in the dark and rise through the ethers with the upmost determination.
Many plans that were ignited during the recent Mercury & Venus retrogrades are now falling by the wayside as new initiatives are illuminated for the path ahead. Quite often we have to see the panorama of any complex situation before making a final decision.
It is time to get real with the transformative energies at play!
Libra Dark Moon / Solar Eclipse on Sunday 15th October @ 3:55am AEST A potent eclipse season of endings and beginnings with the ricochet effects lasting over the next few months. This new eclipse cycle holds the Aries North Node - the Sovereign Self / I AM. This is where self-responsibility and attention to radical love is important to nurture. There will be no hiding from old relational scars with the Aries/Libra overtone.
The key is self-awareness with these energies and what action is required to call forth your new way of being.
With the eclipse honouring the fertile darkness we move into the solar season of Scorpio from 24th October. This season is the dance of the phoenix rising from old constraints and the shape-shifter who transforms dreams into reality with the seen and unseen worlds.
Scorpio season activates themes around finances, investments, intimacy, vulnerability and power dynamics. It is a celestial opportunity to tap into your internal compass. Your energetic intelligence system can reveal if you are in the right place and if there is a need to shift direction or change the focus in your life... time to wipe the slate clean perhaps and begin anew?
Begin by tuning into the subtle messages to understand universal flow and how to constructively channel your most cherished dreams with self-directed action.
Stay open to the magic that happens all around!
Taurus Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse on Sunday 29th October @ 6.24am AEST The symbolic language of resurrection with the ancient mysteries buried deep in the soulful lunar essence. Allow time in nature to be with the earth and listen to the bird songs. You will find a soothing balm in the sacred haven of the flowers & plants.
A bathing ritual with rose petals, blue lotus & violets will delight the senses with the earthly embodiment of Venus.
- What chapters are closing?
- What new ones are opening?
- What best soothes you in times of change?
- What is an ‘ideal’ that you are now releasing?
- What is your next step of action?
Meet the place where fear possibly dwells within - know that all is sacred & welcomed. This is a time to be gentle and tender with yourself and those around you. Now is an opportune time to journal; to be creative and allow somatic movement or stillness with the retrograde planets of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus & Neptune.
What do you desire to honour yourself first and foremost?
From this individual stewardship, the ambrosia of reciprocity can overflow into your relationships, your community and the collective. Allow the felt sense of what is present to expand into a new chapter with the eclipse gateway.
Be brave and listen to your heart... to thy own self be true.
Much love from the dreaming pod
