New Changes, Luck, Balance Magic, and Creativity
This month is all about new changes in our lives, luck, balance, magic, creativity, and the vibration that brings what our heart’s desire and the power to manifest it. This month is also associated with the Wheel of Fortune card, so you can imagine the possibilities it holds for each of us. This is a power-packed month, and while at times you may feel off-kilter, trust in the knowingness that you will find your balance again. This is a great month to update any grounding practices you already do, or add in some new tools like yoga, EFT, breathwork, or sound frequencies to aid you in raising your frequency and keeping your vibrations high.
October energy finds some relief, as Jupiter and Saturn both went direct last month. Pluto will go direct on October 4th, changing your inner transformation outwardly in your life. Mars, Neptune, and Chiron are all still in retrograde. This will be a month our mind, body, and soul will experience expansion, as all the inner work we have been doing will start coming to the surface. You may even feel pressure or tightness in your chest as the energy comes into attunement. Be sure to drink lots of water to assist in this energy work from the Universe.
Here are some other important things to be on the lookout for this month:
October 1st—Full Moon in Aries: The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Hunter’s Moon because at this time of year the leaves are falling and the game is ready to hunt. It has also been known as the Travel Moon, Blood Moon, and Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon that occurs closest to the September equinox each year. This Full Moon in Aries will surely bring the energy of the Harvest along with the fire, and we may even see the Moon Orange around this time! This is a time to release anything that you have perceived to be an obstacle in your path, allow the bountiful Harvest of all you have, and cleanse your path for the next chapter of your journey.
October 7th—Draconids Meteor Shower: The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is an unusual shower in that the best viewing is in the early evening instead of early morning like most other showers. The shower runs annually from October 6th–10th and peaks this year on the night of the 7th. The second quarter Moon will ensure dark skies in the early evening for what should be a good show. Best viewing will be in the early evening from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco but can appear anywhere in the sky.
October 13—November 3rd, Mercury Retrograde: Mercury, the planet of communication, will retrograde in Libra and move all the way back to Scorpio, where it will station on November 3rd. This will be a time to have extra patience with yourself, others, and technology. Plan ahead, double-check all your communication, and take deep breaths!
October 16th—New Moon in Libra: The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. Libra is about balance and relationships. With this New Moon, it is a time to co-create with the Universe what you need for balance and for you to re-balance your needs, wants, and desires in all aspects of your life.
October 21st–22nd—Orionids Meteor Shower: The Orionids is an average shower producing up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet Halley, which has been known and observed since ancient times. The shower runs annually from October 2nd to November 7th. It peaks this year on the night of October 21st and the morning of the 22nd. The waxing Crescent Moon will set before midnight, leaving dark skies for what should be a good show. The best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Orion but can appear anywhere in the sky.
October 29th–30th—Southern Taurids Meteor Shower: The Southern Taurids is a long-running minor meteor shower producing only about 5 to 10 meteors per hour. This shower is, however, famous for producing a higher than normal percentage of bright fireballs. The shower runs annually from September 10th to November 20th. It peaks this year on the night of October 29th and the morning of the 30th. The nearly Full Moon will block out all but the brightest meteors this year. If you are patient, you may still be able to catch a few good ones. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Taurus but can appear anywhere in the sky.
October 31st—Full Moon, Blue Moon in Taurus: The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. Since this is the second Full Moon in the same month, it is sometimes referred to as a Blue Moon. This rare calendar event only occurs every few months, giving rise to the term “once in a Blue Moon.” What makes this even more amazing is that we haven’t seen a Full Blue Moon on Halloween since 1944. This Full Moon will also have the energies of the veil to the other side, being very thin, but you will be asked by the Universe to look closely at what makes you feel stable and secure with it being in the Earth sign of Taurus. And it will be time to release anything no longer serving you in this area.
October will bring the winds of change and the fire to keep those changes spreading through your life. Spirit reminds me that in times of great change we may experience growing pains. Keep your focus on what you know to be true in your intuition and heart that is in service to your destiny.
My work views all the elements of being a human—the physical, emotional, and mental—as deeply intertwined… It is from this whole-person perspective that we can best identify the underlying causes of our struggles and empower ourselves to heal.
