October is here and times they are a changing! Hold on tight this month, because this is one of the biggest months this year astrologically. We have two eclipse’s (Solar and Lunar) with a Blood Moon on the 8th and Mercury goes into retrograde. Sound fimilar? This month will be a repeating pattern of April, but it won’t be as intense. (well, fingers crossed).
Let’s start with Mercury retrograde which occurs October 4th to 25th. I know there are many unfortunate things attributed to Mercury retrograde, but there are also many productive things that get done. This retrograde will be extremely important giving us an open heart on how to feel a deeper connection with others, learn cooperation and give us one look back so we can get clear about how to use our experiences and knowledge from what occurred in 2011-2012. Do you need to repair something? Or maybe construct something to get a different view of what happened and why. And or finding peace in having overcome old dramas we are no longer involved in. You may see a pattern in your current relationships or job. This is the universe showing you an area you need to heal and overcome. Look at it in a different perspective! We can get a new look at recent balance or imbalances in our relationships and receieve blessing once we surrender and let go, especially if it involoves old resentments. This Mercury retrograde flows in the water sign of Scorpio, pay attention to reflections, returns and new insights into the emotional intelligence that you’ve been cultivating. Pay attention to the sign and synchronicity
that come from your feelings and intuition. See how things have changed in the past few months and look for the clarity in this new cycle that started in July.
Read or not, the winds of change are blowing. Eclipses bring the unexpected, forcing us into action. Remember change can be a good thing! October 8th features a total lunar full moon eclipse in Arise and on October 23, a milder solar new moon eclipse falls in Scorpio. Eclipses come along four to six times a year either at a new or full moon and we have two this month! They are the cosmic arbiters or major transformation. They sweep in and remove anything that no longer serves you. Saying good bye can be hard, but remember it is for the better! Trust the universe! Procrastination is part of the human condition. We avoid what’s painful and stay in our comfort zones. That’s why we occasionally need a little cosmic kick in the pants to push us off the wall and into action. Eclipses are these agents of change!
