October 2017 Overview

Happy Birthday Libra!

(And, sorry for this late post….life is moving quite rapidly with many complicated situations )

We have been through some serious Cosmic energy the last two months! And September continued to be wild and intense! Luckily, we have the wonderful balancing energy of Libra transiting the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars bringing a bit of piece and calm, allowing us a chance to  catch our breath  and  restore a sense of order in our lives! The other big news this month  is the shift of Jupiter into the sign of Scorpio on October 10th!

For the past year, Jupiter, called the Great Benefactor, has been in the sign of Libra. Every 13 months, he shifts signs, and will be entering the powerful, magnetic sign of Scorpio on October 10th, where he will remain until Nov 8th 2018!

Jupiter’s presence in the  mysterious and deep sign of Scorpio will be impacting us in several areas of life, having a particular strong significance spiritually! This planet will bring a powerful alchemical frequency, placing a greater emphasis on the dynamics involving planetary evolution with the potential to enhance and enrich our own personal spiritual journey! With Jupiter here, the Truth will be reveled! Just smoothing over things is not going to cut it this next year. We now are willing and ready to take that deep dive below the surface to find the  facts and truth. And, FYI, Scorpio deals with corruption,  and misuse of power at the lower level. So, the headlines in the media are bound to thrive in the next year as we as a country look to balance and deepen our moral compass and what we will or won’t allow at this point in our evolution.

A few other areas getting attention:

*The Laws of Attraction and Magnetism will be potent this year! Emotions and feelings run hot! It is very important that you are mindful of where you place your attention as thoughts, and images can manifest much more quickly……..instant Karma is at work!

*A powerful cleansing and purging …..on all levels!

*Jupiter in Scorpio will bring profound insights to you and the issues in your life though the language of symbols, metaphors and imagery. This will assist you in seeing things from a new perspective!

*What is fake, superfluous or no longer relevant falls away to be replaced by what is authentic!

And, Jupiter in Scorpio can bring you many gifts and blessings!

Here are some positive things to look for:

One of its cosmic agendas while here is to help you establish a greater connection to truly love what matters

to you and your soul!

  • Being able to better grasp and utilize your innate knowing and further develop your intuition!
  • Realizing and manifesting your higher purpose
  • Gaining new and life-changing perspectives about your authentic and true nature
  • Finding it easier to manifest by tapping into the Universal Laws of Magnetic Attraction!
  • Finding the courage, strength an power deep within. You are able to have the courage to ” Do It”…whatever IT is!
  • And finally, being able to shift old patterns and release long held fears and limitations that have kept you from receiving your good and thriving!!!

Remember….Scorpio is about change, transformation, rebirth, truth, power,connecting to source, intuition…(the high vib)……. and lower frequencies of corruption, fear, panic, worry, abuse……All being amplified in Jupiter…..

And, you get to Choose….the High Vibe of powerful Transformation, or the low vibe of corruption,fear, worry, ect!

 Now on to the key dates to take note of:

Oct 10th,11th, and 12th……Mars squares Saturn

When these two meet up it can be a battle of the wills. Saturn can restrict or curtail the movement and expression of Mars, not something Mars deal with well!

So, this is a volatile influence that can bring up feelings of anger, frustration and irritation. Sparks are flying and things are said ( or done) that can add fuel to the fire. It is so important to hold in check impulsive reactions to things that upset you before you’ve had a chance to calm down.

                                                                                  Two things go a long what now:

                                                                        Slowing down and using common sense!

That said, it is likely that whatever gets triggered now ( personally or otherwise) has been a longstanding issue that needs to be addressed…just not in the heat of the current astro environment. And, with the shift of energy in Jupiter, it may magnify the impact of  encounters and events.

At more personal levels, you may be feeling at odds with yourself in some non-nondescript way. Maybe you know you need to do something but just don’t want to —or maybe your are feeling overwhelm by the” to do” list. Both are valid…so just set your priorities, and create realistic expectations!

And know that this grouchy transit will pass…..so do your best not to over react!!!

October 19th….New Moon in Libra @12:13 PM

New Moons  occur every 28.5 days when the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, and mark the beginning of a new cycle. It is the perfect time to review where you are and where you wish to go in the coming month. What gets extra emphasis now are the areas that Libra rules…… Relationships, harmony, beauty, compromise, diplomacy, collaborative efforts,contacts, agreements, legalities, and the law. Usually, this is a very calm New Moon, however, Uranus, the Rebel Planet is in direct opposition to the NM. So, it will have  an unpredictable influence which may have a dramatic impact. Uranus seeks independence and freedom, so these will also be important themes! Unexpected and abrupt shifts of energy may create a feeling that something is “UP” but you may know know what it is..yet!

There are two additional aspects with this New Moon…..Mercury  conjunct Jupiter in the mysterious energy of Scorpio, which may bring up intriguing thoughts, messages and interesting conversations. Pay close attention to the subtleties for clues and insights!

And, Mars is inconjunct Uranus….again…..impulsive energy making it very important to slow down and not over react! Remember, others are feeling this energy too!

Also, I promise to have your DIY NM ceremony shortly for those who can’t join us!

Oct 23 to Nov 5th–Sun-Mercury-Jupiter in Scorpio trining Neptune in Pisces

This is a very mystical combo of astro influences that will bring a mysterious, other-worldly vibe to the air, perfect timing  since this is the week/time of Halloween, All Saints Day. The energy is likely to feel very surreal so don’t be surprised if you are a bit off kilter and ,  on the other side, it can be a most magical time when awe-inspiring events take place. Spend some quiet  nature time, listen in, and just try to relax and enjoy this transit. Life is moving quite rapidly. Our best offense is to stay grounded, centered, and don’t buy into the political drama. Remember, we are in a revolution, changing the very fabric of our world. Prayers and light are needed as we go thru this very challenging transformation, and Jupiter in Scorpio is here to assist on the Cosmic level!



Peace and Blessings

    Holy smokes, Shell, it’s been a wild ride since I saw you last. You were correct… and I think I’ve almost made it out and to the other side. Confused as hell, and what is going onnnnnn?! Feels like collective grieving for us sensitive ones, and yet the show must go on… rapidly and complicated. There are things to do! Too many things!

    I am very tired of Libra energy. I know it was supposed to be like, positive jupiter vibes, but I dislike libra energy a lot and am looking forward to moving on. Not sure how I’m gonna fare with my venus in scorpio, but hopefully it will be positive and not just a big emotionally messy situation, as I’m tired of being such a crier as it is. I need a break from all this empathy man.

    lol I owe you some new photos for the year as well 😀
