Astrology for October 2015
We are coming out of a Mercury Retrograde. Yea! Venus is moving forward and it is out of its shadow period. Another Yea! Oct 8th, 9th, and 10th, finally kick things in gear. Relief!
On a lot of levels we are coming into a new territory. And Mercury is on the North Node and this is a huge turning point moving forward. Destruction has finally given way to noticing all the energy you have been wasting as you were spinning your wheels. And now you feel the energy surge you have desperately wanted to experience.
I know that I have had to take things a chunk at a time. With the mantra, “I think I can.. I think I can.. I think I can. Sometimes children’s nursery rhymes have great teachings in the simplest of ways.
Sun Square Pluto forced your hand and all of us have done a huge let go. Fears were huge in the last few weeks and you had to face the truth, let things and people go and then make that change. We have arrived at a transformational moment, which is excellent. Mix that with a Pluto/Uranus Square and the energy has forced our hand in many places. With the new Moon on the 12th we get the consciousness shift we are all longing for. The game now is new directions and new courage as the old self (you now recognize) has outlived its usefulness by a lot. Yes, it is always difficult to let go of ego patterns that were so carefully constructed to keep you safe and in your bubble. But that bubble has burst in a massive way and now there is only relief as the old dies and the new is reborn.
Venus and Regulus together are challenging you to attempt your greatest feats. The moon is attempting to make you feel into places that have been sabotaging your dreams and kick you out of the old world and into the place of your deepest passion. Mars and Jupiter are starting to conjunct. And Mars is opposing Neptune so you are going to have to take action but from the place of needing to be guided by a deeper intuitive self.
It is about learning to relax and allow rather than force and push. This draws new and powerful relationships into our life and big decisions related to those relationships because of the square with Saturn. Your self worth issues will be up big time. This is the moment when you have to claim that you have value and worth and that you deserve to feel better and have a different life.
On Monday the 12th with that New Moon, there will be a big radical forward movement. A new identity has been born in the fires of the past few months’ destruction.
The best news is that you no longer care what someone thinks. You have to own your truth and then stand in it and live from it. You are being asked to let go of the past and embrace a new reality even when you don’t know what that will look like. And trust me, you don’t know how anything is going to go for the next year and a half (approximately). The universe knows what it is doing but sometimes you are not let in on the pattern because of your fear, ego, and resistance. So right now, you’re just going to have to go with it, not knowing outcomes or if it fits into your present state of reality.
Waxing poetically about the past is going to abound this month and that is fine because nostalgia is one of the ways we let the past go and move forward. You have to honor your past but you cannot drag it into the future.
This is about finding your right self not feeding an old self that is no longer applicable to this new life. Just know that all old maps no longer apply. The pattern is going to be complexly new. Things done in the old way are going to be a massive failure so just remember that you have been warned.
You have magically passed through a door and that door is a one-way door. Going back is no longer possible. With Jupiter and Pluto trining, if you are willing… explosive new doors are going to open. And Mars is going to join Jupiter and there is a feeling like you want to do it “right now”.
You just want to get on with it.
And this time is going to be great. You have to hold tight to trusting yourself and just do what presents in the moment, otherwise you can get in a state of overwhelm and I know for myself that is never good and never fun. Your next level of spirituality requires great grounding. Because of all that Virgo, you have to keep your feet on the ground and you have to practically apply all lessons moving forward. Don’t be afraid, this is going to be great. Attitude is everything.
You are learning to not doubt a deeper place in your core. You need to find that center and hold on tight because it will be a wild ride but a ride that is vastly different from anything you have ever experienced.
For the first time in a long time when the Sun enters Scorpio on October 23 we finally do not have any other planets except Mercury in Scorpio. Yippie! What a relief. I think all of us would love to have a break from diving into the abyss of Saturn in Scorpio for a while.
At the end of the month this Halloween is going to be a party and a real blasting away of the old and embracing the new you. I would do a costume of what you are becoming and symbolically burn an effigy of your old self during this most powerful time of embracing your inner darkness and bringing it into the light.
Then we have a full moon in Taurus at the end of the month, which puts us into a new and very grounded position for your future self. But be warned there is a lot of energy coming together in Virgo and that will create a lot of change. Those nodes shifting is a big deal and is all about getting your desires met and making that into the reality.
All this energy that is trying to make things happen and yet things will not flow the way you wanted.
The Virgo opposing Neptune is overwhelming. You are going to feel overloaded. You have to learn to surrender and not be so critical. It is essential to realize that you do not have to try so hard. You want to connect to something that is important desperately but the Virgo is really trying to just keep it simple. Ask yourself the questions, “What is worth your energy? What is worth your time?”
You are learning to become more discerning. You are trying to leave that mental looping hell you have been living in.
Massive growth is the potential. But it is not going to look in old expected ways. Let it flow and let it go. You will discover something inside that is essential for your fullest expression. It is going to be exciting.
Don’t under estimate the Pisces energy opposing Virgo. It is essential to see what is real and what is not. You are going to see things about people in your life that you may not be happy about. But it is essential to see what is behind the curtain and what is behind the behaviors that you do notice. Things are not what they seem. You are going to see the makeup of others in a way that is very different than you believed. You are going to see the insecurities of others and the problems that are underlying behaviors that you have not understood.
And this is good.
Even the most mundane of tasks will have a flavor of overwhelm. Don’t worry. You are ready. More ready than you ever have been before. It is time. Jump!
