What’s Up in the Universal Sky?! October 2017 Newsletter
Another month has come and gone! We ended September with Pluto stationing direct and Jupiter opposite Uranus on September 28th! The result for many people was pure exhaustion. A tired energy that lingered deep into your bones, leaving you with wondering if you can keep expending this much energy. Now that October has officially started, does not mean that that exhaustion has left, as with outer planets, their vibe lasts for a while (a week or two in total).
October is all about balance and transformation. Balance comes the Sun and Mercury in Libra. Libra’s ruling planet, Venus (Woman, relationships, love and values) will be joining with Mars (men, action, and motivation) on October 5th, which initiates new relationship energy for everyone. Of course, the mind is activated here as both of these planets are in the sign of Virgo. Try not to analyze everything that is happening or you will find yourself off balance.
The big shift that is coming in October is Jupiter is moving into the sign of Scorpio on October 10th! Oh yah, change is happening! Did you notice the synchronicity? On the 10th month, the 10th day, in a 10th year, the planet which rules the 10th card of the tarot deck is changing signs! Jupiter transits a sign for approximately 12 to 14 months. As it completes its journey in the sign of Libra, we are finishing up with the learning’s of attaining balance and harmony. You may have had a relationship experience that has taught you a lot and allowed you to grow in ways that you could not even have imagined. Now that Jupiter is shifting into the sign of Scorpio, it is all about change!
While Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio, one can expect big changes to occur. He is asking us to connect deeply with our values. Powerful emotions that are connected to our personal values and the values of others often come from the unconscious mind. I would highly suggest getting conscious about what is going on in your life at this time. It is kind of like a wake up call of sorts for those who are living unconsciously. Don’t be surprised if a surge of power, deep within your being rises to the surface to initiate some sort of change in an area of life that may not be productive right now. Unconscious insecurities may rise up from the depths of your being. When that happens, one may not trust others as much. You must ask yourself, do you trust yourself? There is a desire for self-mastery with this vibration and you will have the opportunity to learn what it is that you truly do care about. The desire to explore your personal and higher belief systems is triggered and there are great potentials in bringing the contents of our unconscious mind into your consciousness. The purpose to this is to cast off, release and let go of what does not serve your highest good. The discovery process is meant to be an adventure, so allow yourself permission to travel into the un-chartered areas of your mind so that you can gain insight into the big picture. This strong intensity of drive to understand the self is eminent and Jupiter’s grand journey into the gates of the underworld allows you to awaken to your truest potential. Are you ready to embrace the journey into the dark? Are you ready to explore the forbidden lands within your mind? Are you ready to transform and grow? Ready or not… Here he comes gallivanting into the depth of your BEing! There is no hiding from the past, there is no jumping into the future, there is only exploring the grandness of the self as one reflects and projects. Welcome to the beginning of understanding what self-mastery is all about!
On some level I am looking forward to this journey into the depths, and on another level, it has me shaking with a tiny bit of fear. The great changes that are before me (or you) are beneficial in the long run, but sometimes in the day to day there may be challenges with embracing change. Sometimes change is difficult, the level of difficulty is based on our level of attachment to what we desire to stay the same.
If you find yourself having difficulty with letting go, then simply look at what it is you are being asked to change. Use your mind and your heart to simply detach from your ideas or dreams of what it should look like. Fully accept that change is a beautiful thing! Just look at the colourful leaves on the trees!
