Numerology/Astrology for 10/1/17
10/1/17 is the number 3. A positive attitude is something that is always helpful in moving from one big energy into another. And this month with Jupiter moving from Libra (where it was showing you all the imbalances in life to help you break out of illusions), soon it will move into Scorpio on the 10th and stay for about 13 months. This requires you to go deep inside and discover places that you have tucked away and hidden from yourself. It is now time to open to seeing what is really blocking you from the forward movement that your mind believes is possible. Know that this is why such a positive attitude is going to be important. For the next year, you are going down into the deep abyss of the subconscious to unravel the emotional mechanisms that have made you stuck.
The big news of October is god of thunder Jupiter entering emotionally intense Scorpio for a year, beginning on the 10th. In early October, first look back on changing relationships since September 2016 when Jupiter started his path through Libra. Because there are other major planets shifting into new signs in 2018, you can look at Jupiter’s shift as the opening shot of bigger changes to come. Jupiter transforms belief systems, and Scorpio takes you down to the emotional depths of your being, that vulnerable place. Scorpio will require you make some big choices in the coming year, not all of them easy! The first 13 days of October has both Venus and Mars in Virgo. If you are willing to do a little extra work, it will pay off. Venus moves into Libra on the 14th and Mars follows suit on the 22nd. The tone will move towards putting more emphasis on your relationships, all types of relationships including your relationship with money and possessions. Halloween is a bit of a dud this year with the Moon being in its quiet void-of-course phase from mid-afternoon into late evening on the 31st. Of course, a void moon is good for introspective work on the night the veils are at their thinnest between this world and the next. The 27th and 28th are better party days to bring out your inner goblin under an eccentric Aquarius moon. Mars trines Pluto on Sunday afternoon, giving you extra physical energy to transform something in your life. The astrology today gives you more determination and adds a stronger feeling of purpose. There is more of a willingness to explore alternatives rather than simply relying on the tried and true. Don’t be afraid of a challenge and be ready to overcome obstacles along the path. This is intense energy for reworking or overhauling a project. So you might feel as if even you need some sort of personal or physical overhaul. The Moon is in Aquarius all day, and it’s a good time to break out of a rigid routine or way of thinking, network, brainstorm, update, and connect.
Life is a process of making mistakes
in how we understand what we experience.
If you have not noticed, logic has gone out the window and I might as well warn you that you cannot expect to get it back anytime soon.
Let me start with my title for this month, “The Eruption of Maya”.
The Buddhist term, “Maya” translates to “pretense” or “deceit”. Within the Mahayana Abhidharma teachings, this is defined as those who pretend to exhibit or claim to have a good quality in which they are actually sorely lacking.
Presently in our culture you have those who live within the illusion of their own mind that they are following certain, “teachings” and that they believe they are good people because they are doing what their teacher, speakers, etc are telling them. But you must learn to always feel beyond the words and into the substance of what someone says and then do your own research to discover the truth or falseness of that teachers’ beliefs or projections.
I am calling this month, The Eruption of Maya”, because clearly right now there are many volcanos erupting and tens of thousands of people are being displaced because of being in areas that are dangerous. But everyone is actually in a very dangerous place and that is what the Earth is attempting to tell us.
Crisis and terrible things happen to everyone regardless of their beliefs, culture, or religion. There is a spewing of lies and deception flowing all over everything not allowing for clarity of mind and a progression of compassion, love, and connection.
When we have a world of leaders who practice as a normal daily offering, “deceit” they perpetuate a world of karmic suffering and pain.
What is deceit? It is a display of what is not a real quality and is associated with both passion and lust, with a desire for wealth and honor. The function of deceit is to provide the basis for a perverse life-style.
The experience you are having right now is “like” an illusion. Notice I did not say it “was” or “is” an illusion. Life is a process of making mistakes in how we understand what we experience. But even the experience is an illusion. Experience allows you to gain deeper insight into something and embody that lesson physically not just mentally. But even experience is a magic show of sorts. Becoming truly spiritual involves rolling up all the illusions you define as you, one by one, until there is nothing left but love, compassion, acceptance, and truth.
Thus, you are no longer distracted by the “magic” show of others and do not get caught up into the stories, projections, and words of another whose purpose is to deceive in order to take your energy.
