Hello, lovely ones, and happy October!
I will not mince my words. The month ahead is going to be intense as it is jam-packed with powerful celestial aspects that are set to shake up the heavens and our world.
The month begins with a bang with the Aries Full Moon shining a bright light on our relationships with others and the most important relationship of all – the one with self. Conjunct Chiron, this Full Moon will bring deep wounds to the surface to be healed. With Mars retrograde in Aries, the Aries ruled parts of our charts, and lives are getting a lot of attention. Consider this Full Moon a powerful opportunity to release, let go and heal so you can integrate some of the lessons of Mars Retrograde.Enjoy the brilliant Collective Members offerings for this Full Moon, which have you covered from cosmic consciousness, essential oils, crystals, Akashic Records, and a Soundbath – take what you need, dip into what resonates, and you feel called to at this time.
Powerful Pluto stations direct this month, and we will feel his motion reverberate in our lives and the patriarchy… we will also see Pluto square off with Mars and the Sun this month. I feel there is a combustive energy to these transits, and combined with Mercury turning retrograde in shadowy Scorpio, there is deep penetrating energy that colors the month ahead. Oh, and did I mention the month ends with a Full Moon on Halloween, which is a blue moon?
The full list of cosmic dates for your diary are below, including the list of all the cosmic consciousness content you can expect this month. Heads up - I am planning on a live Halloween Full Moon virtual event…will send details soon.
Onward to the Soulstrology theme of this month:observing versus absorbing.
There is no escaping the cosmic intensity, because as we all know - as above - so below.
Our job is to observe rather than absorb all the events that occur, whether in our lives – or the world at large. Observing versus absorbing is something I have had to learn to do as an empath and something I still work hard at doing, frankly, in order to maintain my sanity!
And this is the cosmic challenge ahead for each of us this month as the world may seem to descend into chaos. Observing allows us to respond (where necessary) rather than to react and perhaps make matters worse…and to get energetically sucked into a dark spiral of negativity and chaos.
This doesn't mean spiritual bypassing, by the way. As much as we may want it to be, life isn't all 'love and light' and navel-gazing, whether that is processing our own shadow or pondering our next manifestations (both of which have their time and place, but still, hopefully, you get my point).
It just means that we need to observe what takes place and, to the best of our abilities, respond in a manner that serves our own evolution and that of all others.
Observing rather than absorbing means we can be part of the solution, not add to the problem.
We are all very aware of the problems in our beloved world, but absorbing all the energy around them doesn’t help us – or the world.
Let us all be part of the solution.
MANTRA OF THE MONTH:
I observe rather than absorb
I respond rather than react.
Sending you all much love,
