The Week Ahead

Last Quarter Moon Phase
October 4
5:06pm EDT

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:
What actions are you taking that support your family?  What actions are you taking that speak to your emotions?   What actions are you taking that speak to your roots?   What actions are you taking that build real security?  Not fake security.  

Special focus:
10/6: Sun Square Pluto.   Stuck versus transformative. Rigid vs Rebirth.
10/6: Mercury sextile Saturn.   Shrewd and smart thinking. Clear conversations.
10/6: Mars Oppose Neptune  Confused actions.  Misguided movements. Intuition vs. Action. 

Balsamic Moon Phase
October 8
12:57am  EDT
4:18pm EDT

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new. 

Focus on We release our insecurity.   We release our nervousness.  We release our monkey-mind.  We release our OCD. 

Special focus:
10/8: Venus enters re-enters Virgo

10/9: Mercury turns direct 00 Libra 54.  Hooray!

El Nino Stuff

I have not figured out the astrology of El Ninos.

But I did find this photo of Sepulveda & Centinela Blvd during rain of the 1958 El Nino.

We may be heading in that direction...or not.

Aries Full Moon - Lunar Eclipse

Aries Full Moon
Lunar Eclipse
September 27, 2015
10:50pm EDT

Aries Full Moon

Let’s first talk about the drama around this moon.  Yes, it is a blood moon.   Yes, it will be pink slash reddish.   It is a SuperMoon which means it is close to earth.   It hasn’t been this close since 1982 and we won’t see it again until 2033. When you look at the full moon it will be jumbo size.  It is about 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter.   Hanging low in the sky in the Pacific Time Zone and higher up in the other zones.
You can read more about the technicalities eclipse HERE.

For my friends in LA the moon will rise at 6:39pm

As for the blood moon part and the apocalypse and other biblical stuff, well, that’s not my style and I will leave it to others to opine on and on.   Just Google that if you are so inclined.

In the meantime, the astrology of the moon speaks to considering how you are in relationships.   If this was Cosmopolitan or Glamour magazine you would be reading all about your husband or boyfriend and how you should use this full moon to find new ways to connect with your lover.   Yeah, well this is NOT those magazines so let’s take a different path.  The first relationship you should care about is the relationship you have with self.   How is it going?  How are you taking care of your emotions?  Are you too thin skinned?  Getting worked up and personalizing stuff that has nothing to do with you?   Or are you too thick skinned? Looking the other way when people are doing something crappy to you?   Or how are you finding your inner compass?  What direction are you heading because YOU want to go there?  Or are you being pushed there by others?    Where are you a bully?   Or where are you a wuss?   When do you need to be alone?  When do you need to be with others?  Do you have any idea to find balance?   This is not the full moon to pretend you aren’t on a planet with others.    Every action has a reaction and what are you activating in self and others?   Does it speak to your integrity?   Or are your actions just you bumbling through your day?     How is that working or not working for you?

Yeah, this is not a light moon. 

You don’t get to be that big a moon with a shadow on you without some bounce back on us earthlings.    Emotions will be high but the good news, Saturn in Sag is speaking through this big ass moon with lessons that come fast and our growth will be big.    Watch and see what you learn about yourself and what you learn about yourself in relationships.   Nothing will be lost on you. 

This is a gift.   

Pluto Direct

Pluto turns Direct
On September 24 Pluto turns direct at 13 Capricorn.  Now would be a good time to remind all you with planets at 13-15 degrees of Cap, Aries, Cancer and Libra that Pluto is on your ass.   Those of you who don’t really know your chart are probably already feeling it,  but in terms of super generalizations if you are born around January 4-7 or April 3-7,  July 5-9 and October 6 – 9th give or take a day …you are feeling Pluto.   It is really simple, if you are holding on tight to something so deep in your soul you need to let go…consider letting go.   It may mean overhauling everything in your world but the truth is, it is time to overhaul it anyway.    If you feel blindsided by something, you have my compassion, one hundred percent.  But please do the best you can to get yourself out of the pain and start to rework your life.    This is one of those aspects that beg us to change our DNA.     Pluto has been retrograde since April 16.   Where have you been feeling pressure?  What have you been focusing on that needs regeneration?  Where have you been mulling a big overhaul?   Given Pluto turns direct on Virgo Lunar phase, consider how you can do a little bit of overhauling or change day by day so that months from now you are in a new place?
