October 2014 Overview
October is universally an EIGHT* month (in numerology terms), which shifts your thoughts, concepts and beliefs into taking action and being in high gear. The Solar and Lunar Eclipse in October parallels the Mercury retrograde in Libra and the first few degrees of Scorpio. The events that begin to unfold in October hover over major issues that need to be reviewed, revised and adjusted. Mercury in Libra brings balance in relationships and connections; however as Mercury moves into Scorpio, the inner elements of motivation, ethics and values come to the foreground. Relationships will become like boats, disengaging with those that do not have a strong connection to the dock and instead engage with those that are connected to something solid and secure. As the true inner elements become visible, then relationships will be pulled one way and then another to help line up with similar energies. Relationships will go through various shifts and changes to come into the right alignment.
The Mercury retrograde will be a major focus for changes as the Lunar and Solar Eclipse brings in the highlighted focus to look at relationships and bring in the new beginnings that are connected to your sense of self, purpose and passion. The Full Moon rising on October 7th brings in the focus of 16 Libra/16 Aries. With Uranus aligned with the Moon, shifts and changes in the emotional arena become huge. Uranus brings in changes on the wind. The Uranus breeze opens the door to bring in the unexpected connections to your emotional nature.
In addition, Mars become trine (positive) to Jupiter, which opens the very doors that move you in the right direction. This assures you are moving forward. October 16th the Sun connects with Mercury, which brings in information about your partnership elements and brings in the decisions that are moving you forward. The next day Mercury connects with Venus, opening up the solutions that spur your new directions forward. You may feel your life is turned upside down, but it is to shake out the old concepts that are not aligned with the right elements.
The Solar Eclipse/New Moon on October 23rd has major aspects happening all day long, shifting situations into a completely different direction. Saturday Sun connects with Venus at 2 Scorpio, bringing in the solutions and fixes to make the adjustments needed. The next day, Mars enters Capricorn, which prompts these fixes to be put into contracts, pacts, treaties and agreements that are the result of career, business, government and financial arrangements.
As Mercury turns direct on the 25th, the countdown begins before the new information is put into the pony express satchel and it is out at the midnight run to get the information into the early morning hours on the 26th. As the new information hits the doorstep on Sunday morning, new goals and aspirations are set in place to begin a powerful integration process beginning on October 28th.
September 28th through October 4th
This week sees the transition out of September and into October. September is the review of the year and October becomes the preview of events to come in 2015. October is an EIGHT* month, which highlights business, career and industry. This also increases the pace, and brings situations into focus as they related to the outside world. Moving from the hidden realm of the SEVEN into the horse-race of the EIGHT, the agility of flexing with change becomes a major component to successfully making this incredible transition. Mercury hovers at 2 Scorpio all week before turning retrograde on Saturday. The same 2 Scorpio is the powerful degree on the 26th that is shared with the Sun conjunct Venus aspect. There will be many key elements that come into play during this time that will also become key fixes to align the inner and outer environments. The fixes that become important at this time will also become the key information that is put into the pony express satchel on October 25th as Mercury turns direct, for the midnight run to get into the information surge that will hit our porch Sunday morning, October 26th.
October 5th through October 11th
This week heightens the intuitive connection of changes coming into the picture. On Tuesday, Sun opposition Uranus shines the light onto the status quo and the outdated situations that are earmarked to change. Uranus is pushing for changes that eliminate an old stage and bring in new situations with props, people and events. Uranus has created the completion of the square to Pluto in April at the same time that the first Solar and Lunar Eclipse opened the door to new considerations. From that time Jupiter has moved into a positive angle to Uranus (on September 25th) which provided new options and pathways. On October 8th Mars creates a positive trine to Jupiter, which activates the incoming situations, circumstances and events that shift the situations, turning the cogs to a point where all gears are engaged and the events reflect the shifts. Also on the 8th, the Lunar Eclipse accentuates the full moon of events that also have Uranus tossing in many unique and unusual situations that create the high tide of emotional response. With the Eclipse aligning with Uranus, the changes that emerge are pushing changes into place. These very changes are focused toward partnership and relationships, especially as these elements change out the environment, people, and things. The elements that are changing are prompted by the alignment of the true inner essence, creating the inner and outer balance that is destined for this time. On Friday Mercury shifts out of Scorpio and retrogrades back into Libra, bringing the inner perspective to be integrated into relationships, shifting situations. On Saturday Venus creates the alignment with Uranus prompting the focus of relationships to capture the true inner essence from this deeper perspective.
October 12th through October 18th
This week begins with information flowing into situations, especially as Venus and Uranus are blowing situations around. There are many situations that are in the throes of change which push other situations into a heightened state of transition. Each day of this week finds the changes making more of an impact and shifting other situations around. On Thursday Sun connects with Mercury retrograde at 23 Libra, which brings information into view that creates the need to make major shifts and changes. Typically Sun connecting to Mercury creates the need to sign on the dotted line with a new level of commitment. The decisions that are of primary focus today are made, but yet will take some time to be implemented because of Mercury’s shifts that will come back around on October 25th, when Mercury turns direct. Additionally on Friday the 17th, Mercury retrograde connects with Venus, which requires the shift of decisions creating the new changes within the current relationship status. With Moon connecting to Jupiter later on the 17th, the promise of options emerging will be made, creating a new focus along the way. The transitions are the result of the inner status and the transparency of the inner and outer alignment.
October 19th through October 25th
This week, the culmination of events begins to thrash as the rinse cycle is in full swing. Many decisions made and ultimately the decisions need to be implemented, which creates challenges of the status quo. Sun and Venus move into Scorpio providing the shifts needed. The details are hammered out early in the week, leaving the resulting events emerging on Thursday as the Solar Eclipse opens the door to a completely new way of operating. The empowered New Moon at 1 Scorpio brings the inner and outer alignment into view, opening the curtain to see the new perspective on situations. As Sun and Venus continue to walk into Scorpio On Saturday, and into the first few degrees of Scorpio together, the actual conjunction of Sun and Venus occurs on Saturday the 25th, at 2 Scorpio. Later in the day, Mercury turns direct at 16 Libra, which brings in the information from the Lunar Eclipse which occurred at 15 Aries/15 Libra. The element of Uranus connecting to the Moon in the Lunar Eclipse highlights the shift of changes that started with the Lunar Eclipse that will be brought onto the table on Saturday to be integrated into the outside world. The whirlwind of events blowing through this narrow wind tunnel creates some very strong feelings as change from the old direction and shift into the new direction can feel rather severe in the wind tunnel. The 24 hours surrounding this time has a lot blowing through situations as changing directions can sometimes feel the reaction to change. The hit of turbulence can feel difficult, but will smooth out as Mars shifts into Capricorn on October 26th, and gets everything rolling in the right direction.
October 26th through November 1st
The new series of goals get rolled out as Mars shifts into Capricorn, activating revised contracts, pacts, treaties and agreements. The goals and situations provide a step-by step process and then on Tuesday, a door opens to move the new goals into place. It is as if the new goals become the stepping-stones that are activated by Moon connecting to Mars, igniting the new agreements that will reflect the goals now being put into place. Discussions occur Thursday and Friday as entrance into November becomes an important month to finalize issues, agreements and bring to completion. Wednesday shifts gears as all tasks will have been completed and a new row of energy begins to start a wave of actions that will roll through October, pulling all details together. Saturday sees November emerge with requirements to tie up loose ends, package things up, move them out of the way, clearing the pathway for forward motion. The situations that are complete will begin to drop away as well as the completed events, relationships, roles and connections to previous circumstances. As the stage is cleared, people, places and things are moved from the old roles to the options that will begin emerging in December, opening the curtain to a new phase that will become activated and animated.
November 2014 Overview
November is universally a NINE* month, (*in numerology terms) which requires new accomplishments move in, helping move the old out of your life. You will be finalizing issues, agreements and bring to completion many elements that have completed their purpose in your life. With this completion, you can box up the situations that are done and move them out of the way, clearing a path to ultimately move forward. Those aspects of your life that are done will begin to drop away and fade away, leaving room for the new aspects of your life from October’s options to move into the space that is now available.
With the seven-year process of Uranus square Pluto completion in April at the time of the first Solar and Lunar eclipses, the transitions that began at that time to move out of the old environments and prepare for the new environments, will emerge during October’s Solar and Lunar Eclipses. These major transitions provided the cornerstones to October. Bringing forward a new sense of purpose and passion replaces those aspects of your life that have served their purpose during the last seven years, and yet are now completed. Making room for the new people, places and things designated for the next seven-year cycle, become the shift and changing of the guard that begins in October and continues through November. Completion of this process is November’s task as the new energy moves in and eliminates the old.
Mid month on the 12th and the 13th, two major squares; Mars square Uranus and Sun square Jupiter, push to let go of the security of old situations, to instead, create the changes needed to move the new into your life. As Venus connects with Saturn, the resolutions that need to happen give you a series of tasks to accomplish that turn the cogs. Moving out the old to make room for the new is the theme for November. This may seem uncomfortable as it means saying good-bye to the burning barns. These situations and circumstances may not have been good or kind to you, but have been the familiar issues in your life.
Ultimately, the last week in November brings about a great deal of healing energy that begins to open doors to a new spark of excitement and optimism that will roll out the red carpet. Ushering you into December, you have added energy and enthusiasm for the new elements that now overtake the view of your life. Great things are possible as the new has infused your spirit with hope, joy and promise on the horizon.
