This is a very busy month. There are several things happening that will effect us in one way or another:
*The world will be in an 8 vibration in October. This vibration has a monetary influence that involves leadership, power and control. Restoring confidence and focus is imperative to move forward in a postive way. Watch the stock markets, financial deals, financial decision makers and institutions this month to get a small “preview” of the events 2015 will bring worldwide.
*The planet Mercury is retrograde. It rules the FLOW of money, communications, transportation, electronics, written agreements and contracts, computers, broadcasting, automobiles, veterinarians, Secretary of State, post offices and publishing to name a few. It will enter a weak position on Oct 4th and remain until Oct 25th when it will return to its normal strength.
*Full Moon lunar eclipse in Aries – a very aggressive and assertive energy that has no patience.. acts before thinking
*New Moon solar eclipse at 0 (zero/cipher) degree Scorpio – a VERY strong eclipse
* Viruses (like Ebola) are ruled by Pluto. Pluto also rules disasters (diseases), poisons, floods (Neptune rules water, the flooding is destructive), and volcanoes to name a few things. At this time, Pluto is transiting in the constellation of Capricorn. It entered that sign in 2008 and remains until the end of 2024. Uranus is in Aries creating unexpected, aggressive energy. These two powerful forces are at work today and will be for some time.
October is always a preview month for next year’s number vibration individually as well. Which vibration you are in will depend on your month and day of birth. At some point during the month, you will realize the energy you will be working with or have prominent in your life next year. Keep a calendar of the people and happenings in your life this month.

Summary of September Energy
October 01 – 10
On Sep 24th there was a new moon in Libra at 01 degrees. That energy is still at work as we enter October. The energy will be building toward a full moon on Oct 7th that will be aggressive, impatient, even explosive. With the planet Mercury stationing retrograde on Oct 4th, miscommunications, electronic failures, relationship breaks, are likely. Please, NO MAJOR purchase while Mercury is retrograde as you will probably not like what you bought, or it will be short lived. In business, money flow usually slows down. However, if you focus on OLD clients or potential clients that have already been contacted, this could be a very profitable month. Keep tempers and impulsive, impatient behavior under control and managed positively! The energy on the 7th is yucky. Be quiet.
October 11 – 20
The first day or two of this cycle still has energy unfolding from the eclipse last week. Once it settles, everything will fall into a groove. The middle cycle is sandwiched between two eclipses so the energy is either waning or building! GEEZ. The 14th and 15th have challenging energies that must be handled carefully as too much emotion taints the decisions. Take care of old business, reach out to friends you havent spoken to in a long time. Reconnect. Prepare for the solar eclipse next week!
October 21 – 30
This cycle starts off okay but builds quickly to the solar eclipse on the 23rd! The energy is strong and includes the planet Venus moving into Scorpio also. Watch the markets!! The 24th continues the solar eclipse energy and adds the craziness of Mercury stationing direc ton the 25th! What a few days we will have. Be very careful in all communications, texts, voice mails, emails, etc. On the 26th, Mars moves into Capricorn. This is a very “cool, stern” energy. This could ground the energy from the month and help us take advantage of the GOOD things the 27th will bring. Be careful on the 27th though that you are not lured into a relationship (business or otherwise) that may not be what you think it is. BE CLEAR about it first. This could be more about money than love, but… The month ends with energy that asks us to handle our responsibilities nad cut back on spending. Halloween is friendly with a slight caution around 830pmET .. care should be taken if out in public around that time.
Eclipses in 2014
Oct 08 - Lunar Eclipse in Aries 15 degrees (Powerful energy)
Oct 23 - Solar Eclipse in Scorpio 0 degrees (Intense energy)
When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.
Mercury: Oct 04 - Oct 25 in Scorpio 2 degrees to Libra 17 degrees Mercury rules communications, transportations, electronics, the flow of money, etc. There is more written above about this so I will keep it short. No need for redundancy. It is suggested to delay major purchases, signing of contracts, etc while Mercury is retrograde. This is the time for reviewing what has happened since the last Mercury retrograde and hopefully, bring resolution to anything that is still outstanding. Regarding relationships, many times those people that have separated, etc will reconcile during this cycle. It is also possible to return to an old employer. This timeframe is for “old” business only…no new business if possible! Delays are prominent as well as cancellations – this includes appointments, travel arrangements, delivery of items, etc.
Uranus: July 21 - Dec 21 in Aries Uranus rules the unexpected and unpredictable energies. It rules the sign of Aquarius sun sign, electricity, automobiles, assassination attempts, earthquakes,, astrology, Bohemian, and Russia to name a few. When it is retrograde, Uranus gives the topics/countries that it rules, time for review, reconsideration. It also holds back some of its strength in order to allow for this. It’s like slowing down as you approach an intersection to give you time to make sure you know which direction you want to go. With Uranus in Aries (unexpected, impulsive), this is actually a good thing as it pulls the energy back to a more manageable level.
Neptune: June 9 - Nov 16 in Pisces Neptune rules the sign of Pisces and the house that has Pisces on the cusp if you know your chart. Pisces is the ruler of the oceans, actors/actresses, musicians, and psychics/mediums - to name a few. When Neptune is retrograde those things ruled by Neptune lose their forward oomph while giving us a time to review our goals and dreams. Check for possible changes. Clear our vision.
Void of Course Moon(VOC or VOID)
When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people, etc.
I feel that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is also an element of LUCK associated with this void energy...use it wisely.
One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays.
Be blessed always!
