Celestial Trends - October 2016

October 2016 Overview

October is universally a ONE month, which brings in the new beginnings for the year and sets the stage for the next nine-year cycle from 2017 – 2026. The theme that has just finished and will determine the pathway forward is the connection and commitment to right-action. The alignment of similar people will begin as Jupiter moved into Libra in September opening the curtain to the stage that is calling people into place. Each stage is set with people, props, activities as aligned by right-action choices. The ONE month of October reveals the connecting people that set a new pace as well as a collective energy that will call similar people together. The month has few aspects in the beginning, but is stacked more toward the New Moon that now occurs at the end of the month, bringing all efforts together for a specific purpose.

October is always a preview of the upcoming year, as they both hold the same numerology connection. October as a ONE month and 2017 as a ONE year, emphasize new beginnings and also set a new stage. Walking into the month situations change, people shift, business is reorganized with a new focus and goal. Situations begin to stir pulling in new people and move people out of the familiar arenas into different circumstances that provide a unique connection and opportunity to link together. October’s events will continue to unravel the old situations to pull together new and different people and situations to create dynamic connections. Mercury moving into Libra on October 7th, begins the process as new information streams into situations and hits a new level of activity by October 11th as Mercury connects with Jupiter in Libra. This begins the new pace, and sets the new stage with new people, connections and dynamic purpose. As the high tide of the Full Moon, 23 Libra / 23 Aries reaches the shore, the feeling that everything has changed will feel like the breeze that brings in the new season. This Full Moon brings in the alignment with the changing winds of Uranus as 23 Aries. As the winds blow in a completely new environment, a different theme and focus appears on the stage that emphasizes new relationship connections. The Uranus winds become the dynamic change agent to bring in changes, shifting people, places and things to the natural alignment and commitment to right-action.

The last week in October brings Sun and Mercury together to 4 Scorpio to sign on the dotted line in commitment to the new directions. Scorpio is the engine that powers motives, ethics, and intentions, which create the passion of purpose to align with the next nine-year cycle. As the ONE month of October evolves through the end of the year, November and December become a TWO and THREE month, which will become the similar beginning months of 2017, January and February, which are also a TWO and THREE universal month. We are on our way, sailing out of the last nine-year cycle, making choices to move forward through the Uranus winds of change into our new dynamic world.

September 25th through October 1st
Sun connects with Jupiter at 4 Libra on Sunday evening, setting the pace for the week that leads to a new Moon on September 30th. Sun has caught up to Jupiter to spotlight relationships and cooperative connections with others. Late Monday and early Tuesday, Pluto will be turning direct at 15 Capricorn, which opens the door to reveal the use or mis-use of power as the motive to influence situations and people. Also on Tuesday, Mars shifts into Capricorn as well to activate situations that will move businesses forward depending upon the motives used. Mars will catch up to Pluto on October 19th, when many new options are revealed. Friday evening, a New Moon in Libra occurs as the second for the month, to set the pace for the ONE universal month of October. This New Moon brings people forward that will connect with shared choices and begin new relationships as movement into the ONE month of October occurs and sets the stage for the ONE universal year of 2017. The evolution of our new stage begins in October with the New Moon curtain opening in Libra Friday evening.

October 2nd through October 8th
This week, the door of opportunity of the ONE month will bring in new and different situations and circumstances that usher you forward beyond the familiar circumstances. Having a tendency to like and stay with familiar, the energy will begin to push, pull and prod people into different directions and situations to connect with others, to change perspective and to move everything around. Letting go of the familiar and having the ability to walk into different situations without reacting or trying to put things back into a familiar pattern will greatly assist in making this transition into the ONE month. Feeling like the new kid on the block in many ways, the ability to bring confidence and adventure into new settings, new situations and new people will get you with the program quickly. Mercury moves into Libra early Friday morning, opening the floodgates of information that brings in connections with people different people and different activities. Mercury will join Sun and Jupiter already in Libra, which sets of the expansion process of Jupiter as we enter the following week.

October 9th through October 15th
This week is set with Moon shifting into the airy sign of Aquarius, which adds to the winds of information and shifts that are already in motion. Tuesday, Mercury connects with Jupiter at 7 Libra, which brings in the gusts of information that have a strong, dynamic purpose of changing the circumstances on our stage and even the stage itself. Having faith and trust in the journey into new directions becomes a key factor to letting go of the past to be brought into a new dynamic environment. Jupiter expands us beyond our comfort zone and especially as everything is changing and shifting around; the people, places and things all change. Being caught into the habit of allowing our outside environment to define who we are, the changes that are blowing can be disruptive, or send us the reminder that we have to come back to our true self, connecting with our inner confidence. This very core issue becomes the focus as the nearly Full Moon rises Friday evening along with the gusting winds of change. The Full Moon on October 15th, at 23 Libra / 23 Aries is connected to the Uranus winds of change at 23 Aries. The changes blow in dynamic shifts and changes as Friday’s nearly Full Moon continues to expand into the Saturday morning sunrise. Revealing new realizations of the changes that are in motion become the result and the impact throughout the weekend.

October 16th through October 22nd
This week we continue to have breakthrough realizations that the changes have spurred from the high tide events from the Full Moon at 23 Libra/23 Aries. With Uranus winds blowing wildly through this Full Moon many events have occurred to change the perspective of circumstances, situations as it relates to our pathway forward. Changes occur to bring in new connection with people shifting and changing locations, directions and goals, we are being aligned with others that are similar to our inner essence and commitment to right-action. Tuesday Venus shifts into Sagittarius to assist in our quest to align with goals and to see the right pathway for our journey. Venus brings in the well-being elements of love and money that need to be in alignment with our goals. Venus shifting into Sagittarius brings in the focus of purpose, which will provide a map as Venus aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius on October 29th, giving us the stepping stones to pursue our journey. Wednesday Mars connects with Pluto, which has been a major factor in the previous nine-year journey as Pluto first entered Capricorn in 2008 (the ONE universal year), Mars is activating Pluto’s use or mis-use of power of influence used during the previous nine-year cycle to determine the appropriate pathway into the new nine-year cycle, the stage of circumstances that is being set during this time. Thursday Mercury in Libra will reach the balance point of Uranus in Aries, bringing in the messages of change that turn the tides and change the scenery of our journey. Many of the decisions that emerge were prompted from the Full Moon on October 15th as the balance point with the Uranus winds provided a perspective to the steps forward.

October 23rd through October 29th
This week brings in another shift of focus as Sun has moved into Scorpio and brings Mercury into this focus on Monday. The change of focus means that we will deepen our perspective to the true motives, ethics and intentions that power our new journey. Mercury brings in information that points to and reflects to us the choices made that illuminate the true intentions behind the outer actions. Thursday brings these two energies together with a commitment to the new directions that open up according to our intentions. As a way to further our true inner choices and motives, we will begin to make decisions that express our true ethics and values as well as our right-action choices. These choices determine the stepping stones that we pursue as we move into the remainder of the year to arrive at the precipice of 2017 with our new nine-year journey in front of us. On Saturday Venus connects with Saturn in Sagittarius to bring in the well-being elements of love and money to be aligned with our goals. We may have desires for specifics, but it is the alignment with our true intentions during this time that will also determine the elements of love and money. Saturn brings in the sergeant focus to determine how fit our inner intentions are to bring into the pathway forward, as actions speak. Our actions determine the alignment with true intentions and commitment to ethics. This day becomes the passage into the New Moon on October 30th that sets the pace and becomes the gateway to the right pathway forward.

October 30th through November 5th
This week begins with the New Moon at 7 Scorpio that determines our pathway forward. The gateways become visible as created by our true intentions and commitment to make a difference as built upon our inner motives and ethics. The passion to connect with others, to share the spiritual spark of similar interests and beliefs provide the expression that determines the stepping stones into 2017. This important New Moon reveals the true essence and inner motives from deep within the engine compartment of our being. From this point, we will move into our rightful direction, walking the pathway forward, through the gateway of events and situations to come to the pinnacle view of our true journey. Moving into the universal TWO month of November, issues of relationships, partnerships and connection with others becomes the focus and shift in our journey. Collecting the connections with others as we journey to the precipice of 2017, we will be gathering the events and creating the activities for the passage into the new phase of our journey. From this vantage point, we will see visions of our future days that connect with our intuitive spiritual blueprints that are being drawn through the stepping stones of the pathway.

November 2016 Overview
November is a universal TWO month emphasizing relationships and partnerships that have opened up in October as previous relationships complete their journey and purpose. Revising current relationships into the new focus of the upcoming nine-year cycle becomes the result of the events that occur in October and continue during November’s events. The Full Moon brings key issues forward as the Taurus/Scorpio elements provide the view of the inner and outer values as related to the inner motives, ethics and intentions. This balance becomes the focus of connections with others as outer situations shift to align with the true intentions that are active and drive the movement forward. Later in the month Jupiter in Libra creates a square with Pluto, which becomes the turning of the cogs in opening and closing situations with people, places and things. Jupiter in Libra is expanding relationships to connect those of similar ethics and motives, and Pluto provides the use or mis-use of influence from the previous nine-year cycle that is being completed during these last few months of the year. Ultimately the shifts and changes occurring in relationships and partnerships are a reflection of the changing stage that is being set up to reflect our new journey. The New Moon at the end of November opens the Sagittarius elements of goals, aspirations and spiritual expression. The pathway that will be walked in December begins with the Sagittarius connection of Mercury’s information and Saturn’s right pathway as chosen by true intentions shown by actions, as actions speak.
