October 2014

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.

October Summary:  There is just too much to write about each day due to so much happening in October, so the following will simply summarize the cycles.

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)

Retrograde Planets
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.

Transiting Planets
If the slower moving planets connect with one of your personal planets during 2014 (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), energy will develop to bring about a needed event or change. So, it is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good “connection”.  Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will energize in 2014:

Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately a year in each sign.  At the beginning of 2014 it continues retrograde (began in Nov 2013) in the sign of Cancer.  It will return to full strength when it turns direct on March 6.  It will be at 10 degrees Cancer.  In April 2014, it will make a powerful opposing aspect to Pluto. Watch April closely for mind blowing events set off by two powerful planets (and add Uranus to the mix!) Jupiter expands things and Pluto destroys or transforms them. The signs of Cancer and Capricorn represent nurturing and sensitivity and cool caution and discipline (home family/work responsibilities). Cancer sun signs may also have experiences with the law or legal matters as Jupiter represents those topics. Pluto represents death and rebirth.  In Capricorn it works to transform government and government officials including the banking system.  The year 2014 could see reforms within government or at the least with government leaders. Jupiter moved into the sign of LEO in July shifting the spotlight to those who are world leaders, famous sports figures and anyone in the arts/entertainment industry.  This is a positive energy for LEO sun signs.  Watch inflated egos and overconfidence.

Saturn takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is in Scorpio now and continues in Scorpio until December 2014 when it leaves and enters Sagittarius. Before it leaves Scorpio, it will retrograde back into the higher degrees of Scorpio for very short periods before leaving Scorpio finally in Jan 2015.  Saturn’s energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health crisis that requires discipline and focus to overcome.  It is the COMMITMENT KING. Commitments made during a transiting aspect of Saturn to your personal planets have endurance energy initiated. Not bad for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are a Scorpio sun sign or ascendant OR a Taurus sun sign or ascendant. Scorpio is the sign opposite Taurus. This opposition touches the Taurus sun signs with Saturn energy also just not as intense as what Scorpio feels.  It CAN feel oppressive having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but it doesn’t have to be felt that way.  Saturn can also restrict us in some way, i.e. sprained ankle, sick, etc.  With the ability to focus and accomplish, use Saturn’s positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. For the first half of 2014 Saturn and Jupiter are in a comfortable partnership. That will bring some “lightness” to the weight of Saturn.

Uranus in ARIES will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 8 degrees Aries to 16 degrees in 2014. It does retrograde during the year and in Dec 2014 it will have retrograded back to 12 degrees Aries.   If you have a planet in your astro chart at 9-16 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2014. Libra sun signs born Oct 3 – 10 will feel this energy as an opposing force.  It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries.  You could suddenly quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even decide to change residence when this happens.  The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43.  Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions!  Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenging the signs of Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune in Pisces – will move from 3 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2014. It will be retrograding and back to 4 degrees by Dec 2014.  It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it.  Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and things like the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love!  Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery.  Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto in Capricorn- will transit 11, 12 and 13 degrees of Capricorn in 2014. Those born the first 5 days of January will feel this transit more directly. Any planet you may have in your astrological chart that is at the degrees mentioned, will feel the transformative power of Pluto. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, and big business to name a few. The same applies to those Cancer sun signs born the first week of July; or anyone who has Cancer planets at 11, 12 or 13 degrees. Because Capricorn and Cancer are action oriented signs, Pluto’s transit will create strong desires for action, not just thinking. Capricorn creates harsh aspects to Aries and Libra but if they use the energy to accomplish and keep irritations under control, they will succeed! Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong.  Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. These may be headliners in 2014.  The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible.  A word to the wise should be sufficient.  Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and smooth.

Be blessed always!
