Moon Wisdom October 4, 2013 8:34:30 p.m. EDT Jensen Beach, FL© Chica de las Estrellas a.k.a. Amy Ford
This as many of you know is my favorite month. Living here in the northern hemisphere I love the crispness in the air and the obvious tilt in the planet which I observe through the shifting light through the trees and the coolness in the breezes. Whether you are noticing the change of summer to autumn like me or the pop of spring in the southern hemisphere, I know you are sensing loveliness and a promise of something new. There is a beauty heralded by the New Moon in Libra that is so different from any other. Libra brings a sense of knowing peace and balance are more than a hope, they are a distinct possibility.
Ah, if it were only this simple and easy. This lunation is blown out of the water by an intense opposition by Uranus in Aries and a tight square by Pluto in Capricorn. This is a ticket to a front row seat in drama. Add to the mix Jupiter in Cancer loosely opposite Pluto who is at nine degrees of Capricorn and is tightly squaring the event, and we all get an extra fan to the fire. Fortunately the jovial giant Jupiter is in a wide angle and so many of you can escape with only a tiny singe. Ideas I have to help you get through this are to take extra time to get places by using the longer lazier route and do your best to not push edges or limits.
The good news is that this sort of energetic whoop-up is just what you creative types need to get the last bit of your project out of the corners of your mind and onto the production line. Try new ways of getting your juices flowing through research and new ways to look at development.
The lovely goddess Venus rockets into Sagittarius October 7. Whenever any planet finds themself sitting on the lofty mountaintop of the centaur, they begin wishing for more. When the gorgeous Venus visits the Archer, she seems to be pulled in many directions. This is energetically draining and physically depleting. So as to not become scattered in the winds of change, I urge you to become more organized and sort out all of your thoughts and tasks. You must take extra care in your personal relationships as these are the first to be skipped over during this transit!
Mars makes a cautious switch into Virgo October 15. This puts and interesting spin on your mood and behavior in your personal relationships, given that his lover Venus is flitting around with the Centaur. See what I mean about being pulled in different directions? You guessed it! Now everything becomes even more of a challenge. I know the next few months are going to be filled with clients caught between two lovers. You can contact me now and do an evaluation of the next few months as the two lunar events are indeed eclipses and set the tone for the coming six months. The only way through this is to really sit down and focus on it. Sort things out, you have no other choice in the matter.
Add to the mix the Full Moon in Aries on October 18. If you thought there could not possibly be another see-saw, guess again! The only way through this is surrender. You really have no choice in matters with this sort of fuel to burn. Quit trying to fight against progress and let go. I really mean let go, as a great many of you will see that you are no other choice and are doing exactly this. Trust the ashes of anything that is consumed up as if in flames. Ashes always leave the ground more conceptual!
Are you ready for another fly in the ointment? Mercury’s last retrograde of 2013 is in Scorpio beginning October 21 until November 10 when he goes station direct. You know the drill, back up everything, triple check saves and keep all of your data clean and organized. Be sure your battery is fully charged and don’t give up on any electronics until after he is flying in a forward direction once again.
The Sun dives into Scorpion October 22, amplifying and swirling feelings into a whirlpool of intensification. The sign of the Scorpion brings a gnawing need to get to the root of all things. The association of the Scorpion with the eighth house and its rulers Mars and Pluto, force the ego into an intense reevaluation. The Scorpio transit is a clearing and urges us to get real. There is no room to deceive ourselves. The alliance of Mars and Pluto’s rulership forces us to change or cease. There is no grey area. There is no other option.
When outer planets aspect one another the event is of importance due to the slow movement of these distant bodies. This is the fourth in a series of seven that occurs between outrageous Uranus in Aries and transformative Pluto in staunch Capricorn. The implication of this relationship between the two planets in these particular signs is one of ongoing breakthroughs on all fronts including: social, environmental and economic. Just look at the shifts in healthcare and the awakening in social issues.
I believe good energy and new awareness is growing and continuing as we the collective grow and mature as a group. The sign of Libra and his symbol of the scales requires us to look at both sides of all situations. I wish you an ease in adapting to your new situations that you may enjoy smooth transitions.
May this be a month of realizing your own great mystery and rising to the surface with new awareness in the months to come.
I invite you to read on for my predictions and horoscopes for the 12 signs.
Aries March 19/20 to April 20/21. Dig in deeply to your own quirks and personality nuances then make a vow to work them out by bringing them to the surface. This is how we grow. The time is now to sweetly surrender. Be extra careful to not over commit or over extend. Just as it is important to establish clear priorities in our working lives, it is also important to do so in our personal lives and in our relationships. Your biggest challenge is relaxing when you feel forced into making choices. The only thing holding you up is yourself. It is time to shed your armor and bear your true soul.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22. The desire to roam alone is so strong that it proves to be detrimental. Do what you can to stay tuned in to the jumble of chaotic conversations and activities. Though it takes a strong push, this is for the better. Take care to not trip the trigger on a power struggle. This means you have to tiptoe and not jostle the fragile feelings of others. Eventually the flow of energy runs at a more rapid pace, bringing amazing changes in your relationships. Though you were hoping for this in your money sector, you must be grateful for what you are receiving. Therefore, take extra care to keep from overextending and making offers you cannot bring to completion.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22. You love when the tide is high and you can surf upon many possibilities. It is important to exercise a bit of caution which helps to keep you from capsizing. There is a fine line between awkward surges and judgment from others. Take care in evaluating these forces. You have a tendency to overinflate your fantasies and must take care to make periodic reality checks. The moment arrives when you must face into and view yourself the dark mirror of the psyche. Shine it up and divine into the depths of your truth and integrity. Keep extra cool when a situation at home blows up. The only way out, is to carefully clean up the mess and begin to steadily rebuild.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23. Stay steady with your plans and know that you are making daily progress. Each positive achievement, no matter how small is an important opportunity for you to take time to feel grateful for what has come your way. Give yourself the praise you deserve. You have come through a lot this year and have successfully leapt over many hurdles. Now give yourself permission to take some time to relax and regroup. When you feel your battery is recharged you begin to experience a steady flow of tasks. With work, stretch a little outside of your usual boundaries and take more creative risks.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24. You are all revved and have no plans to roll. Add to this an out of control balancing act between your personal and working life and you find yourself experiencing a daunting sensation. Should you run and hide? Never! This is not a choice as it is not your style. I believe in your strength and ability to see things through to the finish where peaceful calm awaits. Trust in your wild side when you encounter love interests. The only warning is to conserve the amount of love-arrows you shoot at unsuspecting targets. This is due to your dwindling supply. Therefore, aim wisely. You are about to connect with your deepest desire. Are you sure you know what this is?
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24. I know you are the leader in virtue but I still have to give you a warning to be patient this lunar month as you find many opportunities to exercise this skill. Add stillness to your daily diet of activities to assist in navigation through confusion and to relieve stress levels. You are unable to force anything now so relax and be patient while the dust settles. Exercise caution in your movement forward and ask a lot of questions. This is not time for assumption. When you are able to clearly see your feet on the path forward, you gain speed. I trust you will maintain a level of safety and stay within the reasonable boundaries of what you can handle.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24. Change your attention and you will find it a heck of a lot easier to change your environment. Find ways to pacify your desire to bolt. Remember, this is your mind’s way of telling you that things must change. The great news is, your intuition is on point! Trust your inner voice and messages you receive. A little warning: only act if you are 100% positive as halfsies and close do not count in the game of life. It is always better to exercise patience rather than step into a mess. Really weigh out all situations. This guides you to the best and most sound decision. You are finding your way, trust.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23. The seeming wintery solitude is about to end. This has nothing to do with climate and everything to do with emotional weather. The best way to offer a warm welcome is to clean up the past. Nothing says "I’m ready" like a clear empty space. This must occur at all levels: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. When a tree is slow to bear its fruit, the sweetness is always well worth the wait. This is so with all of your current projects. Be extra patient and enjoy the process. Continue to walk your talk and watch as your creativity blossoms. Let things happen rather than trying to make them happen.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22. It is perfectly fine to behave as more of a loner now even if this means you must end a relationship. Please be sure to identify whether this is your propensity for mischief or really how you feel. Keep things cooler than usual and under the radar for this month. Likewise curb your appetite for speed. There is no sense in asking for a crash. Also, please mind your tongue as it can cut sharper than usual causing un-mendable wounds. Trying to push and force things backfires so don’t even go there. Remember, you are not the doer and surrender.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21. As much as I love you staying in the present moment right now I urge you to look down the road ahead at the long-term effects of your decisions and their possible ramifications. Take extra care and lengthier pauses from social situations both in person and on the internet. The reason is that your nerves cannot take it. A better idea is to invest energy into a creative project. Is love your goal and main concern? If yes, anything is possible! Consider retrying what you had given up as a past failure. The stars are better aligned for success now and with these better odds and some ingenuity a slight redesign is all it will take to find success.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19. Colossal ideas and supersized schemes flood your imagination. Try to harness as many as possible. I suggest a digital recording device ready at all times. Stay in your workshop mode and you can flawlessly escape any possibilities of social scandal. Think as far outside of the box as you are able in all situations. Find new methods in which you can practice trusting yourself. This helps to prevent the feeling of being insulted or affected by the criticism of others. At any time your plans can shift. The tricky part of this is to handle all shifts with grace and dignity.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20. Choose to groom and educate others rather than dumping everything and giving up on them. This saves a great deal and prevents you from creating potential loneliness. Do whatever it takes to avoid conflict. I promise a break from the chaos is in sight. For now it is best to involve yourself in your creative projects. This is a much healthier choice than self-medicating and other dirty habits. Choose to visualize positive vibrations of love, prosperity, joy and above all, great health.
