Hello, autumn! You bring much joy and relievement to some; while, others dread your arrival because it means the time for seclusion is here. The energy of this month is calling us back home into our own space of isolation. This season is one of change, of shedding the old, of letting go, and trusting in the magick of the Universe. As the leaves turn and fall so will the tides of life. Some will fall, while others will turn the corner, and others will combust and raise from their ashes. October will be a month of intensity paving the wave for all the major shifts happening for the remainder of the year. The time of magick has arrived and hopefully you have been preparing for it.
As the month begins we have been in a balancing act since mid September. We have all been presented with choices and options that needed much scrutiny, evaluation, and strategic planning. We have the Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in Libra helping us weigh our next action steps, seeing what partnerships are functioning and which are not, and we are able to deliver our messages with diplomacy. The scales of justice are helping us to balance our heart and our mind. By doing so it allows us the space and time to really see where we need to be taking action, what details are more important, and how to go about implementing our desired result.
On October 3rd we have Mercury shifting into Scorpio and Pluto stationing direct in Capricorn. Mercury being in Scorpio will have us having very intimate conversations. These discussions are pivotal to our plans because they will be of benefit to everyone involved. This is also a foreshadowing of Mercury’s retrograde in Scorpio at the end of the month. So, if you think it’s intense now wait until later on 🙂 On that same day we have Pluto stationing direct and gifting us the key to the vehicle we will be using for the rest of the year. We have done much shedding of our old selves that this gift is much needed for the next metamorphosis in our journey. We have left one level of hell and we are now ascending to a higher level of light.
The next day on the 4th we have Mars entering Libra bringing the action planet into the energy of helping us balance ourselves. Once Mars shifts gears we will now be called to move forward. No, more strategizing. Now is the time to do. We have our blueprint, our step by step instructions, and our determination to get the show on the road. All those things that were weighing you down are now destroyed. The road ahead is open and as you can see the road is cleared of obstacles and challenges. Go ahead. The light is green and there is nothing holding you back but perhaps your own fear. You won’t know the exact outcome however action is required.
Venus shifts into Scorpio on the 8th bringing our desires to the surface. We want what we want and we will go through the hellfires of attaining our desired outcome. As fiery and as dark as hell is the fire still lights the way. We are aware of all the ghoulish things, of all the demons, and of all the doorways that can lead to nowhere. Yet, our desire is what is fueling us forward. There was no pact with the devil but there was a promise to our heart and soul to do our very best to attain that light we all seek. Listen to the melody of your heart for it is not misleading you in anyway. The Goddess of Love is showering you with rose petals as you walk forward.
Our full moon on October 13th is in Aries sparking the torch as we continue our walk. Now, we are shielded and protected in our investment for our future. Our passion has led us down this hallway we hadn’t seen before. Our bravery bought us to this secret door and only those who aren’t afraid of going at it alone will be turning the key to a hidden world they knew nothing about. Step through for the warmth of the fire will bring you much needed peace.
At this point we have relished in the warmth of the full moon but now the new moon in Scorpio is bringing us to the depth of our desires. We are questioning whether or not it’s beneficial to continue on our quest? The Universe will supply you with your answer which is a HELL YEAH! Keep going for there is so much more that you didn’t know about. Now, is the time for you to be supplied with these opportunities. Take a rest from all the action thus far and see how far you have come. How moving fearlessly brought you to this very moment of time. Pour yourself a celebratory drink and cheers to the Universe.
Lastly, on October 31st we have Mercury retrograding for one last time this year. It will do it’s thing in Scorpio until November 20th. At this time many things that have been hidden will now be illuminated. A lot of shedding of our way of thinking will be occurring. Things and people we were fixated on will resurface. Areas we were stuck on will now move. Unexpected sources of income will materialize out of nowhere. Business transactions are favorable. New ways of healing will be presented but most importantly old karmic thought patterns and ways of speaking will be forever destroyed. The old you is dying; so, embrace the uncertainty of change for your new self will thank you once you have finally caught up to it.
Happy Halloween, darlings 🙂
