10/17 ~ Jupiter Direct in AQUARIUS:
Jupiter goes Retrograde annually, providing an opportunity to check-in with the Area of Life (House) where it is extending its stay. This year, it’s your Aquarius House, so freedom, detachment & community is all part of it. Jupiter helps us learn & understand things on a deeper level, and in Aquarius, we start to see how our unique contribution really matters. Each year, during the Retro, we get to “edit our personal Story” so that we can live our authentic Truth & Purpose, at a more embodied level going forward. We have from now until Dec 28th to finish up this once-in-12-years opportunity to goldmine the wisdom of Jupiter in Aquarius before our education shifts back to the Pisces Department and we get an incredible expansion there next.
10/17 ~ Sun (illumination) ~square~ Pluto (transformation):
This is a challenge to grow out of your comfort zone and into new territory. That said, with Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024), twice a year for these 16-years, when the Sun is in Aries (Spring) and Libra (Fall), we get an opportunity to grow & change in the fundamental departments of life: self vs other and home vs work. In this case, and during these years, we are literally changing how we do ALL of this. Each year builds on the previous one and we are now 13-years into the 16-year process of transformation. It is here that you have the most information to consciously work with as you prepare for the final 3-years, and ultimately, what you would like to get out of your conscious efforts and dedication. Sun helps us clarify and when working with Pluto, it usually illuminates what is NOT working, what has run its course and is ready to be composted into new Life, new growth and a new direction (for Self). Pluto is the Purifyer, distilling things back to their true and original essence, fight that and it can be painful, work with it consciously and it can be transformative and will heal at the deepest root of any challenge. You can use this activation to honor that which has become obvious, or is highlighted in the here & now and purge or purify this energy. You are deeply supported for releasing old patterns and setting new conscious practices into action. Tie up loose ends, close multiple chapters, mourn if you must & move on. As you do that, you will feel lighter & brighter and much more grounded in your true Self, your evolved Self.
10/18 ~ Mars (energy & desires) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion & education):
This energy is generally positive as you are combining your energy & desires with an expansion of consciousness. It’s especially good for anything physical and bodes well for outcomes to any competition. You will be channeling more energy than usual so be sure to check-in with your body and stay grounded. Jupiter often brings blessings that others may perceive as ‘luck’ but it is more of an alignment between inner & outer. Even if things are hazy or crazy, do your best to visualize success and put your Self in the picture ; -) You will have a great overall perspective of the “big picture” and can plan accordingly. The only caveat with this energy is to avoid being OVERLY confident where you feel invincible. Be confident, not cocky. This energy is very good for knowing what you need and being capable of making succinct decisions about the course which will get you there. Calculated risks are the name of the game!
10/18 ~ Mercury Direct in LIBRA:
We always do a dance of joy when Mercury goes Direct, but we should also remember that we’re not quite out of the woods until Nov 5th, when it gets out of Shadow and moves into Scorpio, so you may experience some residual effects until then. All-in-all though, we have just reviewed our ideas, thoughts & concepts in the Libra Department of Life (House) so what did you learn over the last 3-6 weeks? Your consciousness has been re-wired, upgraded if you will, and it has re-set how you communicate & express yourself within partnerships & collaborations, going forward.
10/20 ~ ARIES Full Moon:
Aries Full Moon affords an incredible opportunity for a clean slate/deep release of that which is no longer part of your identity or purpose. It’s also a good time to release anything that creates imbalance within you or blocks your true independence in the world. This Full Moon kicks off another year of *Release Work*, which also means that you just completed a whole year of it too, so give your Self credit where it is due. As you go forward, rather than feeling like things are overwhelming and moving too fast to process, let alone integrate, you should be able to see where you have done so much inner soul work that you can now move through your own personal processes much faster. Now of course, this won’t be the case for everyone, in which case, the Aries Full Moon is going to shine that bright light on exactly what aspects of Self have put you in this position and make you feel it until you are so uncomfortable that you finally own it. Once you own it, you can deal with it, change it and/or release it altogether. Just keep in mind this is ALL rhythm & patterns which means if you pay attention, you can consciously co-create with more ease & grace and much less frustration. Any Aries Moon is all about YOU! so do some mirror work or dig into your journals looking for your own patterns that you are finally truly OVER and trust that this cleansing is preparing you to be able to engage with others on a much higher level of integrity going forward.
10/21 ~ Mars (lower will) ~square~ Pluto (Higher will):
This is a test of what you are made of, on the deepest core level, and will require surrender and a degree of self-awareness to navigate. This energy challenges you to evolve and will make you want to push through any obstacles but you must be careful not to be so aggressive that you are stepping on anyone else to get where you’re going. This is a potent energy that can facilitate major transformation in your life if you know who you are, what you want and what you are willing to sacrifice to get there – that includes parts of your Self that may need to shift in order for you to be more effective in life. This energy can bring power struggles, within or without, so be mindful because this energy is affecting everyone at this time. This is the time to tie up any loose ends if you are close to beginning anew. If you do not finish what you already have in the works, it may get in the way of things you want to do in the future. It is time to align your true inner power with balanced actions & conscious choices.
