I was shown the energies of October as Self Love. It is building momentum for the freedom of your heart to pulse into your life, rippling into the field of information that builds this world.
Having a foundation of Love within you that is strong enough to sustain through the ups and downs of the human experience is what Self Love offers.
Your inner power is necessary to sustain your focus through the chaos of change.
Self Love has been maligned through time in order to create control over people. When they willingly separate themselves from their innate divine power of Love (connection, support, uniqueness, inherent value, etc.), you can own their energy flow (labor force, collective focus, potential creativity, etc.).
It has been named selfish to love the self. This effects those that will have more of a tendency to care for others. They will doubt their inner flow and (over) give it out. They will give their inner power to another (person, structure like government or religion).
