Planet Alert December 2014

This year has been very hard for many people because of releasing old energy from the past. This had to be done because old energy will not work anymore. We are starting a brand new cycle and we have had to be ready for this cycle in order to manifest the blessings it will bring us.  We’ve been in the energy of Saturn in Scorpio all year and this is what made the energy so hard to handle. It was a year of letting go of everything that we no longer needed. All the deep dark energy that we have held onto for so long that was stuck in our subconscious mind had to go.  Out it all came so we could become great Beings of Light.

I’m not saying that everyone has made it because there is still a lot of trauma going on in the world. Everyone is on their own frequency and will ascend (move into a higher frequency) when they are ready. The ones who have been working for so many years to clean up their thoughts, feelings and actions are the ones who are ready to ascend and live on 5D Earth, which is one of peace and happiness. It’s time for us to create that reality.

Be gentle with yourself and treat people like you would like to be treated. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Some people think being gentle is weak. That is not my understanding; my understanding is that love is soft and gentle. You can be gentle and still be very powerful. Love is very strong because it is the glue that holds the Universe together. The Bible says the meek will inherit the Earth. Meek, in my understanding means to be gentle with yourself and others.

It is also very important to be grateful for everything you have. In fact, being grateful for everything you have is the fastest way to manifest what you choose to experience now, and in the future. Think about how lucky you are. Those of us living in the United States have had the freedom to do what we wanted to do for many years. Even if there have been controllers out there, our minds are very powerful and by using our higher mind we can create whatever we want, or how we chose to live our lives. Of course we needed to release all of our fears to be able to do that.

The sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in Sagittarius (plus Asclepius) right now. I really like the energy that is coming in now. The energy that comes from the sign of Asclepius/ISIS comes in from November 30th to December 17th. There is actually a wind that comes from that sign to Earth during this time period. Asclepius is the 13th sign of the Zodiac that has been hidden for a long time.  It represents Goddess (love) energy. That might be the reason I like the energy so well that comes to Earth during this time period.

We have a full moon occurring on December 6th at 4:27 AM PST. This full moon will again trigger the full moon eclipse that happened on October 8th of this year. That eclipse was seen all over the United States. One of the manifestations of that eclipse was the event in Ferguson, Missouri and the demonstrations that occurred because of it all over the United States. The whole world is also under the energy of demonstrations, riots, and violence. This will continue as long as Uranus is square Pluto.  The 6th  square will happen on December 14th  . The 7th and last one will occur in Mid-March of 2015 and will last for a couple of weeks. That will be a very turbulent time period for 3D Earth.

Also that last eclipse on October 8th was on the degree (15 Aries) of starting to weave our immortal body.The ascension symptoms for those who are empaths were very strong. It has not been easy to move from a mortal to immortal body and it has been very hard on our physical bodies. Hopefully we are moving through that energy very fast and at the time of this full moon the south node will be on 16 degrees Aries. This degree gives us an invitation to open our minds to the possibility of approaching life in a holistic and non-rational, intuitive manner. Haven’t you noticed how thin the veil has become and how easy it is to see through it? People are also becoming more aware of fairies and the little people. They are becoming part of our new reality. I think that is very exciting.

Another Astrological event that will happen on December 4th is that Mars moves into Aquarius. Than on December 8th Jupiter goes retrograde on 22 degrees of Leo. That degree of Leo is very powerful and Jupiter is a very powerful planet because it is so large. In Mythology Jupiter was Zeus, the leader of the Greek Gods and the one who threw thunder bolts through the heavens, and controlled the weather.  Mars in Aquarius will also interact with Uranus because that is the planet that rules Aquarius. This will give a lot of energy to Mars and Uranus and together things can get very hectic.

Mars will be activating the West Coast of China, the Koreas, Japan, and the South Pacific Islands. Being that Mars and Jupiter in aspect to each other bring financial issues to the foreground, and because they are activating those particular areas what kind of financial dealings will occur? I’ve heard there is all kinds of gold in that part of the world. Does this mean it is time to go on a gold standard? Does this mean we will finally be aware that there is a new financial system and it is ready to go online?

We have been in the Age of Aquarius since 1962 and that is considered The Golden Age. Jupiter is in Leo which is the opposite sign of Aquarius.  Leo is ruled by the sun which was gold in color until recently. I’ve heard the color of the sun has changed to white.  So the Sun has been transformed from gold to white, and so are we in the process of being transformed into great Crystal Beings of Light using the Crystal Diamond Heart Energy. Could this cause the spark of light that is in the hearts of everyone to be activated, or just the ones who are ready for this activation?

Saturn will be in Scorpio until December 23rd and that is when Saturn moves into Sagittarius. This will be an entirely different vibration. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and there will also be a fire trine in force for a few months. Fire is action and fast moving events. It rules the fire within us which ignites our passion. Sagittarius is the teacher, the preacher, the lawyer and rules the Galactic Center.

It is very unusual for Uranus, the planet of light, to turn direct at the same time as the solstice. This will add to the amount of light at this time so be prepared for this great light. People who are unbalanced have a real challenge when so much light comes in and some go crazy and do weird things. Maybe you could fill your body with the beautiful blue light of peace and serenity at that time and tune into your higher mind. Let there be peace in the world and let it begin with me.

Saturn was in Scorpio for over two years and that is a water, emotional sign. Now Saturn will be in Sagittarius and the energy will move from the focus on Russia and the Middle East to Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India. In the United States Saturn’s energy will be focused on the area from Los Angeles to the Mississippi River which includes all the desert lands along with the mid-west farm lands.

Africa and the Pope, along with Europe will continue to be activated from the node in Libra. The node can bring up life and death issues and this is why so many people in Africa have died from Ebola. The node will be in Libra until October of 2015, and September will be the last of the blood moons.

I am really looking forward to this holiday season and to all the light that will be coming to Earth. This light may totally ignite our Light bodies and maybe some of us will start to glow. Wouldn’t that be fun? Happy holidays to all of you and I send you my unconditional love.  So Be It!

Astrology Report For December

Guest article By Dorene Carrel

December offers opportunities for creating positive change and an optimistic outlook. Jupiter in Leo goes retrograde and Uranus in Aries turns direct, with both forming a fire grand trine with the Sun in Sagittarius at the Full Moon.  This energetic pattern will help us create new opportunities to achieve our higher goals.  Saturn enters the sign of Sagittarius for the next two years, providing a practical perspective for our visions and ideals.  The month begins under the Sagittarius new moon cycle, with a focus on one’s spiritual path, journeys and achieving a higher perspective.

On December 6 the Full Moon occurs at 14 Gemini.  It opposes Mercury, Venus and Ceres, which indicates that we need to stay positive and supportive in our thoughts and communications.  The fire grand trine created by the Sun, Jupiter and Uranus adds a burst of energy that also allows us to achieve greater clarity about our life purpose at this time.   The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “The need to clarify one’s experiences through actual contacts with like-minded individuals,” and “The value of anticipating new turns of events and ascertaining future prospects,” suggest the importance of communication within one’s spiritual circle to gain new perspectives and make preparation for new changes.

Jupiter in Leo turns retrograde on December 8 for the next four months, encouraging us to reexamine any beliefs that are not in alignment with our higher intentions. We can also gain a broader perspective on our lives at this time. As the Sun aligns with Mercury today, it is favorable to communicate and journal about any new insights.

Uranus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn on December 14.  This is the 6th out of 7 exact squares (since 2011), with the last one occurring in March 2015.

Expect higher tensions and changes in the world and in our lives, with a continued rebellion against excessive power, control and outdated structures. Look for an outcome that brings more freedom, equality and authentic expression, although there may be dramatic breakdowns along the way.  Make sure to have adequate preparation for possible earth changes. The strong Capricorn emphasis this month suggests more earthquakes, mudslides and storm damage.

This Uranus/Pluto aspect makes two significant alignments with Venus and Mercury in Capricorn.  On December 20 Venus conjuncts Pluto and squares Uranus, which can bring disruption to our relationships and finances.  On December 24 Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Uranus, which can lead to power plays and rebellious actions.  However, Pluto allows us to have an in-depth perspective that can bring greater resolution, while Capricorn encourages us to examine our commitments and take a step-by-step approach towards our goals.

The New Moon occurs on December 21 at 0 Capricorn, just a couple of hours after the Winter Solstice.  This month we can build on the Capricorn traits of being thorough, conscientious and organized.  Its alignment with Mercury ushers in a busier period of activity, accentuated by a direct station of Uranus the next day. Some surprising news, events and breakthroughs can occur at this time.  It is favorable to slow down and stay centered. The Sabian symbol for this degree, “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe,” suggests taking responsibility in the balanced use of power and authority.

On December 23, Saturn in Scorpio makes a major shift into Sagittarius for the next two years.  It will retrograde back into Scorpio from June to September 2015, allowing us a final chance to clear emotional baggage.  Since Sagittarius is the sign of the archer, we will have renewed energy for aiming higher and striving to fulfill our visions and goals. There will be more focus in the areas of education, spiritual path, dreams and long journeys.

Mercury goes retrograde in mid-January, so be prepared!  Sending blessings to all for a peaceful, joyous Solstice/Christmas/New Year.

Christmas Present for Mahala and You!

Posting by David of AmorStyle Healing & Yoga llc.

Hi Everyone!

I’d like to introduce myself. I am Dave, one of Mahala’s sons. I’ve been quietly helping her manage her website and MailChimp email list for a few years now. It’s a pleasure ‘working’ for her, even though it’s not really work. The best thing is that it helps empower Mahala to reach all of you in a cost effective and timely manner. I love seeing the planet alert newsletter and following her on the radio talk shows. It’s a pleasure being able to share these with you and, from the website statistics, I can see that there are a significant number of people that feel the same way!

This is exciting!

To share my appreciation for her years of dedication, I am offering her a month long Christmas present that also reaches out to each one of you! Here it is:

This Christmas present comes in a number of parts, so bare with me if you will.

First off, I’ve created a way in which anyone can purchase natural essential oils by clicking through the following image located on her sidebar.

Anyone can order pure therapeutic grade essential oils there and have them delivered directly to your home (not exactly sure how many countries they ship to, but they list most English speaking countries when you visit the site). Eventually, I’m going to create a doTerra site for her and change this link (that costs money, so we’ll let it unfold in time.)

Second, I’m offering my time to help you find the essential oil that might help you make the most progress in your endeavor to heal naturally! That’s right. During the month of December, 2014, I’ll offer my time, via email, to answer questions and help you – help yourself heal!

Astroloty Report For November

Guest article by Dorne Carrel of AstroConnections.

November has an active and dynamic theme, with powerful planetary alignments that can bring transformational changes.  These changes contain the possibility for challenges and disruption, as well as positive personal growth and increased strength.  The planetary stations of Neptune and Chiron highlight our connection with the inner/spiritual realms. The month begins under the October Scorpio new moon cycle, also a solar eclipse, with a focus on the use of power and cultivating a deeper awareness.

On November 6 the Full Moon occurs at 14 Taurus. It is aligned with Venus, Pluto, Mars and Chiron.  This lunation is the third in a row to feature a close alignment with Venus (ruler of Taurus), which brings focus to values, resources, and issues of equality.  Power and control issues in relationships can also come up at this time. We may discover strength and courage from standing up for our values and the rights of others.  The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “Early steps in the development of a mind seeking to be attuned to the higher level of human evolution,” and “The courage needed to meet the crises precipitated by social ambition,” suggest that opportunities and resources for growth in consciousness are now abundant.

November 6-12 is likely the most potent and volatile period of the month. Be prepared for possible earth changes. Mars aligns with Pluto in Capricorn on November 10, which can bring power struggles and important shifts. There is an opportunity to develop deeper insight, personal power and self-mastery.  The theme of dynamic change continues on November 12 when Mars in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries, leading to either breakdowns or breakthroughs.  Also on this day, Venus aligns with Saturn in Scorpio, which helps us find constructive outlets for this energy. It brings a serious, sober quality to our relationships, but also allows us to stay focused and achieve more clarity about our true commitments.

Neptune turns direct on November 15 at 5 Pisces. This period is favorable for work involving releasing the old to allow for new positive change.  Now we can bring our ideals and creative, healing impulses into outer reality.  The alignment of the Sun and Saturn in Scorpio on November 18 should help provide needed focus and structure.

The New Moon occurs on November 22 at 0 Sagittarius. It aligns with Venus, Saturn, Ceres and Neptune. Significant shifts occur this month that can attune us to a higher, more evolutionary perspective.  The alignment with Saturn helps us to stay grounded and be able to effectively channel our resources. The presence of Ceres suggests that we pay attention to our own health and dietary needs, while also giving and receiving healing support. Neptune can bring increased compassion, but the challenging square suggests being aware of possible confusion, misunderstandings and deceptive situations.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories; the will to reaffirm the value of the struggle upon which civilization and group achievements are founded,” suggests building upon the values of the past to achieve a higher evolutionary purpose.

On November 23, Chiron in Pisces turns direct.  Now we are better able to release past wounds and have more healing energy available for new life directions.  The alignment of Mercury with Saturn in Scorpio on November 25 is favorable for discerning the steps we need to take to manifest new goals.

On November 27, there is a difficult alignment of Saturn and Pluto that can lead to set-backs from unresolved situations.  It challenges us to eliminate elements from the past that do not favor our greater growth.  However, Mercury entering Sagittarius on this same day brings a more expansive, positive perspective.

In December, Saturn enters Sagittarius and Uranus turns direct.  Blessings to all for peace and prosperity.

Planet Alert November 2014

Are you experiencing major Ascension symptoms? I sure have been and a lot of my friends have also been experiencing physical challenges. I ended up in the emergency room on October 1, 2014 with extreme high blood pressure and when they gave me medicine to take it down I went into shock with a major reaction to the medicine.  It has not been fun and I am still reeling from that event with heart palpitations, which many of us are experiencing, and head pain, etc. I know I am in major transformation and when I am going through something I also know that other people are doing the same thing. I had to take it easy for a couple of weeks. I am fine now even if I am still feeling some symptoms. I just wanted to share in case you have been going through the same thing.

My major transformation started on August 24th when the ionosphere lit up over the West Coast and there was an earthquake in California. Actually an event happened on April 23th which I think started to change the energy big time here on Earth. We had the first blood full moon eclipse on April 15th this year. Then we had Easter on April 20th and then on April 22/23 (depending on where you live) there was a perfect cross in the heavens with Uranus on 13 Aries, Jupiter on 13 Cancer, Mars on 13 Libra, and Pluto on 13 Capricorn. On November 30th until December 16th we enter the time when a solar wind comes to Earth from the 13th sign of the zodiac which is called Asclepius or Isis.

The other event that I did not know about that started on April 23, 2014 and lasted for 20 days was a star in our Solar System sent out a beam of light that would be considered an X 100,000 flare if it came from the sun. And then it kept sending out flares for 20 days. That is a lot of light affecting us here on earth. Here is a link to that video; go into www.spaceweather.com and then change the date to October 2, 2014. [Editor note, here is a link to the youtube video that can be found on the Space Weather site]

With all of that light affecting us we are definitely in fast-speed transformation. In the last few days there were several solar flares that came off the sun, and the sun was facing Earth. The interesting thing is there were no CMEs that came with these flares. A friend channeled for me last night and I asked “Why were there no CMEs that came with the flares. The answer was that they (the friendly ETs) would not let that happen because that would be too much energy for the Earth to handle and our grids would have gone down big time. We do have good protection from the unseen side of life.

Actually, the photons are good for us even if they do cause Ascension symptoms. The light is raising our frequency so we will soon be great Beings of Light. The flares affect our brains, and this sometimes makes our eyes blurred or gives us headaches. In October we had the solar eclipse on October 23, along with several X class flares. This light is burning the impurities out of our bodies, and changing our thought patterns so we can become Crystal Beings of Light.

This energy is very difficult for some people because the increased light makes them go crazy and they end up shooting people, and sometimes themselves.  It is very sad to me that so many children have died this way. And the people who are the controllers are trying to keep people in total fear and they appear to be doing a good job of keeping them in fear. We have Ebola, and we have I.S.I.S, and we have war and violence in various parts of the world. And of course the Earth changes are still happening and this will continue to happen. I think this is the chaos before the change. New creation comes out of chaos.  And remember fear means False Evidence Appearing Real.

The Sun is in Scorpio right now along with Saturn and Venus.  Saturn goes into Sagittarius on December 23, 2014.  Saturn does retrograde back into Scorpio in June of 2015 and stays there until September of 2015. Saturn will be on 28/29 degrees for all of the time it is retrograde so that may simply mean more light coming to Earth because that is what 29 degrees Scorpio means. There are three symbols for the sign of Scorpio. They are the scorpion, the snake, and the high flying eagle, which one do you chose to vibrate to? I choose the high flying eagle.

The sun will be on 29 degrees Scorpio on November 21st 2014.  Then Saturn will be on 29 degrees Scorpio from December 15 to the 23rd, which includes the Winter Solstice on December 21st. And this is the time that the planet of light (Uranus) turns direct. There will be lots of light coming to Earth in December. And Hanukkah (the Festival of Lights) begins on December 17th. This says to me that people with love in their hearts are ready to experience a new way of living.  People on the old Earth will probably still experience more tribulation until they are ready to change.

Another interesting event that happened in October was a green comet whose atmosphere hit the atmosphere of Mars and caused an explosion of light on Mars. Here is a video link to this event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx3WdyOihH8 .

There are a lot of events going on in the world concerning our banking system that are very important. I think we will hear some news about this before too long. I have heard the BRICS union is ready to open their World Bank. The main World Bank is in Washington D. C. and there are networks all over the world. The World Bank in Beijing is urging China to cut its economic growth to seven percent in 2015, and focus on reforms. I think we are ready for a new world banking system. I don’t think there will be a crash when the system fails. I think there will be a peaceful transition of systems. It would be too traumatic for the world to experience another crash like we had in 2008.

We have been in the year of the Chinese fast-moving Horse, and I must admit that time is going by very fast. On February 19, 2015 we will move into the year of the Wood Sheep. The sheep is a very mild animal and it corresponds to the sign of Cancer in Western Astrology. This is the most feminine sign in Chinese Astrology. The Year of the Sheep is a very artistic year and brings out the creativity of people. The serenity of the Sheep’s peaceful ways will slow things down a bit and may just bring peace to Earth.

The Wood Sheep has high moral values and is very generous. The Wood Sheep has the tendency to mother others and can be most devoted to those he cares about. The Sheep will be overwhelmed by the circumstances of others and will want to help them have a better life. During this year people may receive financial help or inherit money from unlikely sources. That sounds good to me. I think we need a time to relax and enjoy life and enough money to do what we choose to do. Will this be the year of a new financial system? Only time will tell.

Halloween is upon us again. This is of course the celebration of Spider Woman, the Hopi creative goddess.  The exciting thing about this Halloween is that a ten day doorway starts on October 31, 2014 in the Dreamspell Calendar. When these doorways open we are able to experience higher consciousness provided we stay in the love vibration.  The veil is always very thin at the time of Halloween and this time it will last for ten days.  Be sure to ‘think with your heart’ during this time period and it is always good to manifest love energy.  So Be It!  *****  Mahala Gayle  *****

From Depth to Life

Guest article by Mona

~From “Depth” to Life~

In these last few months,  many people have  really been feeling the “jolts” of change in their lives. I’m sure we all are to some degree feeling an upheaval of sorts as well. We recently had a blood red moon,  2 eclipses, and many solar flares of great magnitude to add to the pot. There’s no doubt about it…life just isn’t the same, nor will it ever be again.

Being a Vibrational Energy Healer/Reader my whole life, I would love to add a few tid bits of healthy advice for everyone to consider as these shifts are only increasing… especially up to the end of the year.

1.The changes we are experiencing are about lifting our recognition of our personal power. Both as individuals and as a collective whole, we are becoming new every day. Therefore, we must realize that by moving forward in life, this suggests we change our way of thinking in regards to how “things have always been.” Decisions we make may no longer feel like something we would have done even a year ago, and may be completely in a new phase of changing into the road less traveled. The best suggestion: go for it…. we really can no longer abide by something that our hearts do not feel.

2.As easily as illnesses come on, they can also leave. Energy is actually clearer and much more productive on our planet now. This is because we are being “downloaded” by many means of what the Universe is giving us and also has in store for us. It isn’t a good thing, or a bad thing. In higher consciousness, there’s no such thing. It’s what I call the “As Above, So Below” concept. It’s not that we can just “wish away” an illness, but we CAN wish away a thought. Those destructive thoughts can cause destructive action in the body. Also if you are working too hard, I am feeling strongly that we need to recognize the balance in resting as much as working.

I teach a workshop called “Energy Mechanics, The Science of Healing.” In the last class, I had a student lay on her stomach on a massage table. As the other students watched, I demonstrated a healing right before their eyes. It was only a mere recognition of the students right hip higher than the left. It was obvious to the group that this student looked a bit lopsided. So I put my left hand on the students sacrum and immediately felt a lack of finding time for herself. The hip being higher on the right side (giving) can indicate “putting out too much” and not having enough support. So I removed my hand, and gave the student on the massage table a short guided meditation, which included a cup of tea and a quiet room without interruption. I proceeded to engage her in reading a good book by a fireplace wearing a cozy comfy blanket on a cold evening. This guided meditation was all she needed to find herself relaxing. Then, as the other students witnessed this, they all could visibly see her hip going back into place without anyone touching her. The young woman could feel her hip subsiding away from her tailbone area and relax back to where it should be.

Suggestion:  Find comfort in each day by going within for even a few minutes and remembering that you are in charge. For we are the placebo making our lives each moment… just think of all the marvelous things we can teach ourselves!

3.Next, this one is the biggest and best of all… finding truth in connection, not attachment. When I teach this, most people do not understand it at first. If you realize that we attach to other people by deciding how to interact with them, we’ll see that this is actually an old survival issue from childhood. Anger can arise by feeling hurt…betrayed, and heaven help us if a partner leaves us. We get caught up subconsciously in the realms and fears of not being loved, not understood, judged, or accepted. People who have had abandonment issues have difficulty with this one, and yet, just taking time to realize that we are the ones who mostly judge ourselves, that alone will help us in releasing the fear of whether or not we are “good enough.”  It’s time to turn things around. For years, we have been taught that we are egotistical if we put ourselves first. It’s true if we are only out for personal gain, however, in the world of self esteem, we must come first. If we don’t, it’s like having debt in your bank account and you find yourself living in deficit. ( Talk about a poor place to be…) This is what Self Empowerment is all about. It’s knowing and having the courage to say no, to rest instead of running ragged, to learn to trust that your world will not collapse if you take a day off here and there… because the way things are going today, you just might collapse if you don’t!

4.Love the person you’re becoming. You contribute more in life than you could imagine. You may feel like you’re going crazy at times, but the truth is, we are not falling apart, we are falling into place. We are becoming better people as the Universe continues to talk to us. Subconsciously and consciously, we are acting and reacting differently for a reason. We are creating a new world, and are in the throws of of being a conscious contractor. The less we judge ourselves, the less we judge the world, and the clearer we become capable of stamina and more energy.

5.Be patient. Look ahead, not behind. Anxiety is from nervousness and not feeling like you can change the past, present or future. Depression can come from fear of the future. Either way, do your best at living in the moment and enjoying as much as you can. Remembering the late Joan Rivers and one of my favorite sayings she said, “Keep Calm and remember that everything is funny!” Here’s to us, our changing world, and the courage to love yourself no matter what!     Blessings in Love,  Mona~

Astrology Report for October

Guest article by Dorene Carrel.

October is a very dynamic month, highlighted by two powerful eclipses and significant planetary patterns. The relationship theme is very prominent this month. Mercury is retrograde for most of the month, challenging us to be patient and strive for clarity in our thinking and communications.  The planetary patterns bring focus to the ongoing challenging Uranus/Pluto square, while a fortunate grand trine presents opportunities for creating harmony and balance.  We begin the month still under the September New Moon in Libra, emphasizing equality and cooperation in our relationships.

On October 4 Mercury turns retrograde at 2 Scorpio, and turns direct again on October 25 at 17 Libra.  This cycle can be used to become more aware of our beliefs and communications around relationship and intimacy issues, as well as shared resources and power.  A previous partner may reappear to resolve unfinished business. During this period it is best to slow down, simplify one’s life and avoid making long-term decisions.

The first half of October will feature a harmonious Grand Fire trine pattern involving Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries.  This is a creative time that brings optimism and increased energy to make connection with what inspires us and to reach for our highest goals.  However, it is best to wait until next month for taking action, after Mercury has turned direct.

On October 8 a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs at 15 Aries. This total eclipse is aligned with Uranus, Pluto, Venus and the North/South nodes in Libra/Aries.  A tense Cardinal T-square pattern is formed by the Sun/Venus in Libra in opposition to Moon/Uranus in Aries, with both in square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto can bring up power and control issues, but also allows us to go deeper. With Uranus involved in both major planetary patterns, we may take a path that favors unconventional approaches.  There may be more concern about preserving our own unique identity and striving for fair, mutually beneficial solutions.

The theme of the Aries/Libra nodal polarity revolves around achieving the right balance of freedom and closeness in relationships. The North/South nodes aligned with this eclipse present an opportunity to change deep-seated patterns from previous lifetimes, or within this lifetime.  Venus, ruler of Libra, is traveling close to the Sun this month, which encourages us to focus on a more heart-centered and compassionate approach.

The Sabian symbols for these degrees are: “Nature spirits are seen at work in the light of sunset; attunement to the potency of invisible forces of nature,” and “After a storm a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction; the need to keep in operation steady links between the vast Unconscious and the ego-consciousness.”

This speaks to the new moon alignment with the Super Galactic Center, which suggests that this cycle of time can bring about major shifts in consciousness.

The peak times to take advantage of the Fire Grand Trine are October 3-4 and 7-8.  On October 4, Mars in trine to Uranus can bring inspired, energized action and inventive ideas. Mars trine Jupiter on October 8 brings a boost of optimism, a broader perspective, more flexibility and a sense of adventure.

The North Node makes several alignments with personal planets this month, all in the sign of Libra.  The North Node indicates our path of greatest growth in this lifetime. The Sun/Node alignment occurring on October 12 brings focus to our core energy and how it can be strengthened.  The Venus/Node alignment on October 14 provides opportunity to give and receive love and support. The Mercury/Node alignment on October 20 and 30 can bring new, creative ideas and opportunities for improving our communications.

The New Moon, Solar Eclipse occurs on October 23 at 0 Scorpio 25. This partial eclipse is aligned with Venus, Neptune and Pallas, which gives it a softer tone than the previous lunar eclipse.  The Scorpio focus is on power/control issues and releasing fears; also being resourceful, determined, penetrating and secretive.  With the Sun-Venus influence, this eclipse could indicate a new love relationship for those whose charts are aligned with this degree.  The trine to Neptune suggests a spiritual soul mate type of tie. Pallas helps us to perceive hidden patterns in our relationships so we can bring them to greater awareness.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A crowded sightseeing bus on a city street; the fundamental human eagerness to expand one’s social horizon and to experience the results of collective achievements and new ways of life,” reminds us that we are in a period of enhanced evolution of consciousness.

Mercury turns direct on October 25 at 17 Libra.  Now we can move forward again with delayed plans and projects.  The Sun aligns with Venus today and both trine Neptune on October 27-28.  This peaceful, gentle, loving energy helps us to end the month with renewed faith and abundant grace.

November brings a Neptune station. Blessings to all for a prosperous fall season!
