Astro Babble ~ October Edition! Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for the stars!” Casey Kasem
After the Astro Rollercoaster last month--a Solar and Lunar Eclipse, Saturn changing signs, the Mercury Retrograde!--October should prove to be a kinder and gentler month. One way or another, we’ve all been through the Cosmic “Rabbit Hole” and (hopefully) back again. And I’m thinking that some lumps of hard coal, through pressure, have transformed into diamonds—ready to shine! That’s the beauty of extreme times, the opportunity for transformation. Time to breathe and regroup!
The Astro Theme for October is Earth with a hint of Air! The element of Earth is a powerful grounding force, it helps us to “keep it real” and stay in the present moment. Air is the element of inspiration, new ideas and the big picture. So this is a time to find a balance between the two, much like: Keeping your feet on the ground, and still reaching for the stars!
October Astro Events
Mercury goes direct on October 9th! This Mercury Retrograde in Libra highlights the realm of relationships, the cosmic dance between self and others. This has been a period of rebalancing aspects of your life that have not been in alignment with your authentic self. As Mercury goes direct, expect new clarity, especially in regards to your relationships!
Libra New Moon, October 12th: This New Moon is one of the most significant happenings this month! It closely follows the end of the Libra Mercury Retrograde and is in direct opposition to Uranus (liberation and breakthroughs) in Aries, bringing extra momentum to new beginnings--especially on the relationship front. Embrace new boundary setting, as you take all that you’ve learned during the MR and make it real. Give yourself permission to, well…embrace a new you!
Taurus Full Moon October 27th: In a word, this Taurus Full Moon is…Yummy! It’s has a rich, abundant and fruitful (like chocolate on a bad day) quality! It joins many earth planets, and offers a moment to regroup and most reground. Time to celebrate your life in the most earthly sense—food, pleasure, enjoyment, family and dear friends. Dinner party? RSVP yes!
Your October Horoscope
Aries: Your focus this month, Aries, is on service. Sound dreary? It’s so not!
