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!

October will be quite a month with two eclipses; one a blood red lunar eclipse on October 8, 2014 and the other one a solar eclipse on October 23, 2014. And Mercury will be retrograde almost all month. That will be quite a combination. The full moon on October 8th will be at 3:51 AM PDT. Those who are living on the West Coast will be able to see the eclipse if they choose to get up around 3:30 AM, or sooner. Because the moon will be conjunct Uranus at the time of the eclipse, this is considered an Occultation by the moon. This eclipse will be seen as a very large moon and very powerful because of the Uranus conjunction. Uranus rules light, lightning, and high technology.
Last year on April 15 there was the first blood red moon of the series and it happened on the Jewish holiday of Passover. That festival is symbolic of war. The Russian-Ukraine war got really serious in April, and the Israel-Palestine war was in July. There was a three month time period before the Israel/Palestine war started. Eclipses set up events that sometimes happen several months after the eclipse. Now we have I.S.I.S as one of our main concerns, plus the other wars that are still happening.
This upcoming blood red moon will be at the beginning of Sukkoth, which is the Jewish Harvest Festival. This is supposed to be one of the happiest festivals of the year. And of course people all over the world celebrate Harvest Festivals in October, and they are all considered happy festivals. This blood red moon eclipse will be seen over almost all of the United States. So what will this full moon bring?
This upcoming full moon will be on 15 degrees Aries. Here is what my degree book says about that degree. “The fact is that every individual has his/her ultimate conscious task which is the weaving of the Immortal Body, also called the Gnostic Robe of Glory, or the light body. It may sound very mystical and far out but there is a moment in every cycle when, in however small a degree, every individual may be confronted with the potentiality of a fulfilling act of self-realization and may find himself ‘clothed in light’ for an instant.” (This sounds very interesting to me.)
Also at the time of the lunar eclipse the moon will be conjunct Uranus in opposition to the sun in Libra. There will be all kinds of unexpected events that will happen with the moon conjunct Uranus, which brings sudden unexpected changes. This full moon will also again trigger the Cardinal Cross because Venus will be on 10 degrees Libra, Pluto on 11 degrees Capricorn, and Uranus on 14 degrees Aries.
Venus will be conjunct the Sun, which will be opposing Uranus, and that means there are big changes coming and it might involve money. Venus is the planet that rules love and money. Maybe there will be an unexpected event around money, and maybe it will be for the good of all. The Jewish Shemittah year started on September 25, 2014 and ends on September 13, 2015. The Shemittah year waives all outstanding debts. Maybe it is time for a noticeable change in our financial system. I just heard that 105 countries have dropped using the dollar and have turned to the BRICCS financial system.
The next eclipse will be a solar eclipse on October 23 at 2:57 PM PDT. This eclipse will be widely visible in the United States and Canada. These countries are definitely in for some changes. Mars will be lined up with the Galactic Center so we can expect major energy coming from that area to Earth.
Mercury and Jupiter are the main planets of this eclipse and Mercury will be opposing Uranus at that time. There could be major storms in different parts of the world with this aspect in affect. Mercury and Uranus in aspect rule storms and also transportation, which may cause a lot of accidents. Jupiter square Saturn may cause financial problems although Venus could turn those problems into positive energy.
The next major festival is the Jewish Festival of Light. This is another major festival and is very beautiful with all the lights that will be everywhere. This festival starts on December 17 this year and lasts for about a week. The Winter Solstice, which is considered the birth of light, will be right in the middle of this festival. The solstice will be on December 21 at 3:03 PM PST. On the same day, at almost the same time 2:45 PM PST, Uranus, the planet of light will turn direct. This means that light will be dominant after the solstice. Maybe we will all be filled with light at that time and start to shine like a brilliant star in the heavens. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Right now we are watching thousands of people demonstrating for freedom in Hong Kong. This is Uranus in action. Uranus rules revolutions, riots, and demonstrations of all kinds. It is the planet that demands freedom, especially because it is in the fire sign Aries. Have you ever tried to hold an Aries down? And Uranus and Pluto (the transformer) will be in exact aspect from Thanksgiving to Christmas this year. We are in a very revolutionary time period.
There are people who say “the dark is going to control us” well; that is not going to happen. They are at the end of their control. Haven’t you noticed how all the negative things the controllers have done is coming to light so everyone can see what they have done? This is what Saturn in Scorpio has been doing for the past two plus years. It has uncovered all our dark stuff, or our shadow self, and brought it out into the light so we can see it and release or neutralize the energy. We are now working on creating balance in our lives. The negative cannot exist without the positive and that is just how it is. Negative dark energy can become dominant and control people at times and it seems like it has been that way for a long time so now it is time for light to rule.
Move out of fear. Fear is just ‘false evidence appearing real’. We don’t need that energy anymore. It’s like we have been going through a dark tunnel and are about to come out into the light. We are fast approaching a world of love and peace and beauty which we have all been striving to create for a long time. We are almost there and when the fire trine comes into force, that energy will burn up the impurities in our bodies and we will become great Beings of Light.
By December 21 we will begin the start of a new cycle. Then Saturn will move into Sagittarius on December 23 and we will start having a major fire triangle in the heavens. We will have the three large planets of Saturn, Jupiter, and Uranus all in fire signs. It will then be time for major movement because fire signs are very active.
There was a Beam of Light that hit Earth on August 24, 2014 and caused an earthquake in Northern California. At that time Jupiter, Venus, and the moon were all in Leo, making an aspect to Uranus. And the sun was conjunct Regulus, the Royal Star of the Lion. This beam of light hit me and I am still reeling from the affects, and that was over a month ago. It felt like everything in my body was rearranged. Here is the link to that event: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2734573/Mystery-glow-Pacific-Ocean-Pilots-left-baffled-strange-orange-red-lights-spotted-dead-night.html
Be happy and joyful; don’t get caught in the negative. Find the seed at the bottom of your heart and bring forth a beautiful flower. It’s time for our rewards. So Be It! Love to all of you! ***** Mahala Gayle *****

Thank you so much!
Lots of love to you!
We just passed the full moon in Virgo/Pisces and the people in Arizona, Southern California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado really felt the effects of the moon, and the photons from the sun that hit Earth a couple of days ago. The moon was in Pisces, which is a water sign, and lots of water and storms were felt all over the world with lots of flooding in various places.We will also have photons from the sun hitting Earth soon, and I just heard an X 1.6 solar flare just came off the sun and the sun is directly facing Earth. This could cause some challenges.
The good news is that the Pisces moon was conjunct the healer Chiron so there should be lots of healings in the next couple of weeks. I would like to thank everyone who sent me healing and suggestions for my sinus infection and my eye problem. I am well now and it feels good to be that way. I was like a slug for two weeks and this is why my article is late. I felt an energy surge on Sunday August 24 and was wondering if anyone else felt that wave. That is what put me out for two weeks. I think it rearranged everything in my body and I ended up sick. It’s nice to be well.
On this past full moon the Sun and Moon were both on 16 degrees. This is the Tarot card called The Tower Struck with Lightning. When I see a planet on 16 degrees in a person’s chart I always wonder what kind of trauma that caused in a person’s life.I guess the five states in the Southwest United States know what it feels like to experience the Tower struck with lightning. I am sending lots of love and light to those areas to help with the clean-up. Lilith, the dark moon helped create those storms around the world. On September 4 Lilith was conjunct Uranus, which is the planet of wind, storms, and lightning.
For years I have been wondering what planet is the true ruler of Virgo. I looked in one of Alice Bailey’s books and she said that the esoteric ruler of Virgo is Jupiter. I thought that is interesting, although I wanted to know what planet was the physical ruler of Virgo. Mercury is considered the ruler of Virgo. Others have said that Chiron is now the ruler of Virgo because of its healing abilities, and I have thought about that but for some reason it did not feel right to me. I think Lilith (the goddess of many names) rules Virgo because Virgo is the only sign that has the “symbol of the Goddess.” I thought Virgo must be ruled by a goddess planet, and that is why I think Lilith is the true ruler of Virgo.
Lilith was the original Goddess who was given a very bad name because the powers that be tried to destroy the Goddess and have a male dominated world. Lilith, the dark moon has been hidden for a long time because it has been on such a high vibration that we cannot see it in the heavens except when it is in front of the sun. Pictures have been taken of this moon lately and I am sure she will come to the foreground soon because it is time for the Goddess energy to be the main energy here on Earth. Goddess energy is in both males and females. It is the love energy we express from our hearts.
Lilith is very powerful and I think she might have started her reappearance with this full moon. I’ve talked in the past about how we are in a Virgo cycle that started on July 11, 1991 which brought us the first inkling of the Goddess energy. This is a cycle based on the star Regulus, the Royal Star of the Lion now moving through the sign of Virgo. There can be more than one cycle going on at the same time and we are also in The Age of Aquarius. We also entered the period of the Sixth Sun on July 11, 1991, according to the Mayans. Virgo is the sixth sign.
Lilith was the first wife of Adam, according to the Bible. Neptune is a higher frequency Goddess planet. Lilith and her mate were the rulers of Neptune long ago, and they were also the original Anunnaki creator Gods who came out of the water onto Earth thousands of years ago. The movie Frozen was the story of Neptune and how it was destroyed by being frozen. Neptune is a giant ball of ice according to the Astronomers. Now it is time for the Goddess energy, be prepared for the activation of your heart energy.
Now what is coming up with the planets? September 10-11 the moon will be in Aries and will again trigger the cardinal cross. The moon will be conjunct Uranus and make a square to Pluto. This is a violent war aspect to come up on the anniversary of 9-11. What will this bring? Some people say there is another 9-11 in the works. I think it will work out by our president doing something about I.S.I.S. I hear he is supposed to give a talk about the crisis tonight which is September 10,2014. This might set-up an action that takes a long time to work out.
The Middle East, which includes Africa and the Ukraine, has been under the influence of Saturn which is the karmic planet for over two years now. Saturn has been in Scorpio. which is ruled by Pluto the transformer or the God of the Underworld. The release of our combined shadow energy has caused a lot of havoc in the world and it has played out in the Middle East. Scorpio rules the deep dark hidden energy within all of us and everyone has been looking at their shadow for a long time. We have had to release all of our garbage and the release of all this energy is what has caused the violence in the Middle East because Saturn has been over those areas, and still is. We are slowly moving into the last of that energy although it might still be very chaotic until Christmas when Saturn moves into Sagittarius.
Mars is now moving into Sagittarius. This is an entirely different vibration than Scorpio. Sagittarius rules fire and with Mars in a fire sign things might heat up in the Middle East, along with Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India so watch what happens in those countries. And what is China doing by putting 12,000 fully armed troops on the Russia border?
Sagittarius rules freedom. The people of the Middle East have been crying for freedom since the revolution started in Tunisia in January of 2011. Those wars have gone on for over three and a half years. The whole world has been calling for freedom for a long time and we were heard by some ETs from Arcturus.On August 23, 2011 some ET ships came in and destroyed the base the dark ETs had on the handle of the Big Dipper. That Stargate had been controlled by the dark for a long time. The Arcturians said ‘that is enough; it’s time to help those on Earth who are working so hard to hold the light’.This destruction was recorded as a Super Nova on the handle of the Big Dipper.
Then they destroyed an ET base on the moon that had a machine like a computer that they used to control people on Earth. The control from that base was focused into Washington, D.C. where there was an ET base under the city. Then the Arcturians went on to destroy all the negative ET underground bases in the world. Every time a base was destroyed an earthquake was recorded. This means that the negative ETs do not control us anymoreand we can be free by just looking outside of the box and seeing how the Matrix worked that has controlled us for so long. It is all an illusion. And we have had divine intervention.
The people on Earth who have tried to control us are still trying to do the same thing although their matrix is also starting to fall. And there are still unseen entities around looking for someone to attach to so it is very important to release any that might attach to you. If you don‘t know how to do that yourself, ask someone to help you.
Now it is up to us to change things. And maybe soon there will be open contact between us and the positive ETs. This will probably happen on the New Earth which is where we will soon live. We will become free when we realize that we are. The Earth will not be destroyed, it will be changed. Has our job been completed, or soon to be? Have we brought the frequency of Earth to the point where she can ascend? What will it be like when we claim our freedom? How will it all manifest? I do not know, although I do know that it will be more exciting than we can ever imagine. So Be It!Lots of love to everyone! *****Mahala Gayle*****

From Mona channeling Izora
Many of you who know me, I’m Mona Delfino…Energy runner and healer, Vibrational Medicine practitioner, teacher, author, and reader of energy. On August 23rd, I channeled a beautiful being named Izora. I’ve been channeling her for many people and groups since 2010. She is Pleiadian, a very high vibrational being who is funny, feisty, and very loving.
On August 23rd, a dear client and friend requested this channeling as a session. As it turned out, the message was surprising to her and she said Izora requested this be public. An urgent message for humanity, and anyone who will understand it can help in creating our world for peace, unity, etc. If it is not paid heed, we are possibly going to repeat a cycle that happens every 26,000 years. We are here again together to help bring about only the best for ourselves and our children. Here is the channeling:
As you well know, many of you realize everyone is in transition. It’s time that change occur for all of us. First, let me explain that your hearts are waking up if you so desire, to the “sense-ative” abilities it carries. Your heart has ears (listening), eyes( knowing when to move into something you trust and desire), touch( love), taste( the smarts in realizing what to stay away from), and balance. It’s becoming more alive every day. Now, your downloads and changes are mostly due to the Sun, magnetics, and shifting.
A few weeks ago, the Sun had stopped solar activity for a short time. This concerned your scientists. However, it was meant for you, to catch up from all the changes and downloads in the brain due to solar initiations through flares, particle generation, etc. It was to help regenerate you through a “rest cycle” on a larger scale. It was also when your “Robin Williams” passed into the Spirit world. This helped humanity through generating heart consciousness and unity for the love of him. Humanity sparked a bit through this love.
Here is a video showing an energy source over the sun http://galacticconnection.com/significant-can-feel-bones/.
We could not keep the flares from happening much longer. So now they have started up again. This time, they will be more intense without having to exude any more energy than before. They are going to increase and it’s time again for another surge. This time the human race will be effected a little more dramatically. The Earth will be more effected. You will have more Earthquakes. (California quake happened on the next day August 24.)
Here is an article from NASA http://www.wnd.com/2014/08/nasa-dangerous-sunspot-aligning-with-earth/.
The weather patterns are going to shift rapidly, and Earth will have an extremely cold Winter. Please prepare now for one of the coldest Winters in your history. This is all part of the changes. The magnetic field around the Earth has decreased, therefore causing more intensity in and around the Earth, and within yourselves. This is not to harm, but to wake up the human race.
This process was intended for the benefit of a higher vibratory world. Now, if humans raise the vibrations within themselves, they will increase the vibration within the Earth, causing the magnetics to become new in unified energy. You will create a New Magnetic field which is in alignment to the changes of higher frequencies, so needed upon your Earth and in the Universe.
First, you must “allow” what is happening without judgment in order to recognize you can rise above this. (I’m in the world, not of it) If humans do not allow and try to stop what is happening in the world through fear and judgment, then you cannot become the “Human Solar Flare.”
In the light of change, there is an energy of electricity. It comes when 2 or more are gathered. It sparks when a group of people come together for enlightening themselves through these shifts and changes.
Some speakers in your world who talk about this are not with integrity and do not walk their talk. When egos are present, these speakers do not instigate from the generated heart and therefore cannot reach as many humans in this great time of need. If you are not honest in yourself, your heart is not activated, and the generated abilities and energies we need to help increase these shifts from you on this planet, simply do not happen.
Therefore, the enlightenment does not get filtrated into the magnetic field, keeping it then weak. As above, so below…as within, so without. It is utmost important that humans become more true to themselves for the regeneration of your magnetic field. Humanity needs to participate and “give back” through this method. The Cosmic downloads will not stop. It is better to align with them and not resist. Then you will be more resilient to the changes…remember, all is energy.
Lift your vibration not in the midst of chaos, but because of chaos. For this will rise and generate more electricity for the human race to become stable without the old ways of living. This is what we’re after for a whole new world, Universe, and a whole new time. You are like a lightning bolt, sending energy back as it hits the Earth.
People, it is with this information that we ask you to understand the importance of this message. The Earth and humans can simply regenerate with these Solar Flares. No doom or gloom here, however, energies need to be recognized now more than ever before. It is all about Magnetism. Rise above the mundane, the chaos, and the TV stations. It’s time to get real with the energy of Love. For that is the way of Spirit. Much love to you ALL. Izora
Guest article by Dorene Carrel of www.astroconnections.blogspot.com.
September begins very calmly, then gradually builds more intensity and momentum after mid-month. The highlight of the month will be Pluto in Capricorn turning direct on September 22, the same day as the Autumn Equinox, which is followed by a New Moon in Libra. This New Moon is closely aligned with the Super Galactic Center. The Equinox/New Moon time will be very intense and a powerful time for rituals and new beginnings. The month ends with a very harmonious and fortunate Jupiter/Uranus alignment.
We begin the month still under the recent August 25 New Moon in Virgo, with a focus on patience, perseverance and working with details. Work and health matters are highlighted. It was aligned with Neptune, which has an idealistic, spiritual aspect, but can also bring confusion and deception.
On September 5, Jupiter and Pluto form a quincunx aspect, which requires some type of adjustment. In this case, our fears and need for control may override a desire to follow our higher beliefs and ideals. Resolution comes by viewing our circumstances from a higher perspective and seeing the long-range plan.
The Full Moon occurs on September 8 at 16 Pisces. It is aligned with Chiron and also Uranus, Pluto and Saturn. The Chiron aspect contains a strong healing influence, especially involving wounds from the past. Pisces qualities include being sensitive, compassionate and mystical, while the shadow side brings escapism, confusion and deception. The outer planets of Saturn, Uranus and Pluto emphasize the need for transformation. The Sabian symbols for these degrees, “a volcanic eruption; the explosive energy of long-repressed contents of the subconscious,” and “an Easter parade; the capacity…to unite the members of a community in a display of excellence,” suggest the release of past energies holding us back from our greater growth.
September 9-13 contains a cardinal cross between Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Libra and Juno in Cancer that increases the momentum towards striving for balance and a heart-centered approach. Mars entering fiery Sagittarius on September 13 brings a new momentum for inner and outer journeys, as well as courage to aim higher with our life goals.
On September 14 the shadow period begins for Mercury retrograde, which means that it is best to be cautious about signing contracts and making decisions that have a long-range impact. This cycle will last through most of October.
A very potent period occurs from September 21-25. It begins on September 21 with a challenging square between Mars in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces.
This aspect has a passive-aggressive quality, but can also help us in striving towards higher ideals. The next day Pluto goes direct on the Fall Equinox, which gives a heightened power to this seasonal turning point. Whatever is set into motion at this time will have a stronger impact over a longer period. It is a favorable time to set intentions and do rituals.
On September 23 the New Moon occurs at 1 Libra. Libra themes bring focus to relationships and striving for equality and cooperation. This month is favorable for cultivating more balance and harmony in a particular life area.
The Sabian symbol for this degree, “the transmutation of the fruits of past experiences into the seed-realizations of the forever creative spirit,” suggests a readiness to evolve towards greater wisdom in how we use these Libran qualities.
This lunation is closely aligned with the Super Galactic Center. According to Stephanie Austin in The Mountain Astrologer, the SGC is “a colossal Black Hole around which revolves our Milky Way plus fifty other galaxies, each containing billions of stars. Electromagnetic transmissions emanating from the SCG act as a spiritual beacon, triggering memories of our cosmic origins and destiny.”
Jupiter in Leo forms a harmonious fire trine with Uranus in Aries on September 25. This energetic aspect, which lasts from September 22-27, brings enhanced faith, intuition and good luck that can lead to greater harmony and prosperity. Innovative solutions and rewards may come to those who have held a vision for a promising outcome. There will be more opportunities in the areas of education, publishing and travel. It is a favorable time to take a journey involving travel to sacred sites, as well as inner spiritual work with dreams and visualization.
October brings two eclipses and Mercury retrograde. Blessings to all and stay tuned!
