This month is focused on Shaking It Up inspired by a Sounds True Podcast interview with Brad Keeney that I listened to in September. The value of physical shaking is covered in the Podcast as well as making choices to shake up our habitual reality by doing things in a different way. You might choose to sleep in a different part of your bed, walk backward for a few steps, or move things around in your home, or brush your teeth with your non-dominant hand, or trying on new ways of speaking using different language including words, phrases and even affirmations. This is about finding ways to do things that shake you into new possibilities or are opposite of what you usually do. Another way to shake up your reality is to entertain ideas and possibilities that you might otherwise dismiss.
One of the things in the Podcast that shook an unconscious belief I have was around Christian Church services as being mostly boring. When I was younger I had experienced them as devoid of any alive connection to ecstatic life force or spirit. However, as Brad points out in his talk there are many black churches in the south (and other places) that do connect with an alive ecstatic life force through their music.
I have provided a link to the Podcast for those who are interested in knowing more but meanwhile the summary of all this is we can literally shake our way into an altered state. Brad describes it this way:
Our body has the natural form of expression called “shaking,” and if it’s precipitated when you are truly feeling a heart awakening—and that’s brought about by music that really has wings to lift you into the highest imaginative sky of your visionary hopes and dreams—then it kicks in – in an ecstatic way.
We see that at rock concerts and Grateful Deadhead reunions, and we see it in sanctified black church, and of course, it’s all over the African diaspora. That’s something that is a little more interesting than a simple automatism (spontaneous body movement), and that becomes a healing medicine. In fact, what’s most interesting is that it is the first medicine, the first spiritual practice, and the first way of having relationship with the great mystery, because we now know that we’re all from Africa!
In southern Africa, the oldest ancestral culture, is the Kalahari Bushmen. Over 100,000 years ago (which we know because of the rock art images), they used the very first form of healing and spirituality—the first religion, the first well-being program, the first spa, the first of anything that involved people trying to get out of the everyday, habitual mind and trying to find themselves in relationship to the great mystery, the divine—which was shaking.
But even though I’ve said this, it has nothing to do with shaking! It has to do with something else. Underneath the shaking is awakening of the heart that is so wild and so extreme that it’s best to call it “extreme love.”
This is the kind of love that mystics talk about when they feel like they’re making love with the gods—that kind of heart-piercing, that kind of dramatic, extraordinary life awakening that’s entirely about feelings. It’s not about any realization. Don’t believe anyone who says spirituality has anything to do with understanding something new. It’s not about understanding a blasted thing!
It’s about being completely hit by lightning in your heart in this extraordinary shower of blessings. This love just flows, and in that you can’t help but tremble and shake. It’s about being hit by a lightning bolt of extreme love, and that makes you shake. The shaking medicine is the manifestation that we see. Somebody’s shaking because they’re just so filled with extreme love, and that’s healing. http://www.soundstrue.com/store/weeklywisdom?page=single&category=IATE&episode=10823
Inspired by the Shake It Up theme I decided to search for two songs that I remember have the word Shake in them. Here is the YouTube for Twist and Shout by the Beatles and here is part of the chorus
Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C’mon c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)
Well, shake it, shake it, shake it, baby, now (Shake it up baby)
AND Shake Rattle and Roll by Bill Haley and the Comets.

Here is the link to a Special Podcast I recorded in early September with Kimberly Errigo talking about Shamanic Astrology and how it intersects with Shamanic Practices both ancient and modern day.
In the old Roman Calendar, October is the eighth month and sacred to the goddess Astraea. Known as a star maiden, Astraea is the daughter of Zeus and Themis (Goddess of Divine Justice). During the Golden Age Astraea lived on Earth and bestowed her blessings upon mortals. She left Earth at the end of the Golden Age and was placed among the stars of the constellation of the Virgin Priestess (a.k.a. the constellation of Virgo). In some of the Goddess traditions the month of Mala ends on October 2nd and is followed by the month of Hathor ending on October 30th.
Hathor is the Egyptian Goddess of Love and Beauty, mistress of joyous celebration through feasting, music, song, and dance. Queen of the West, she welcomes the dead into the next life and is also considered a Sky Goddess. Interwoven through their mythic stories Hathor and Sekhmet are aspects of each other. (See Article Sekhmet Returns)
Sky and telescope calls 2015 the year of conjunctions. October planetary gatherings are in the morning sky with Venus and Mars still in a very close dance. Jupiter is also prominent in the morning sky and Mercury joins around October 8 with increasing visibility throughout the month.
As October begins, Venus, Regulus, Mars, and Jupiter are easily visible in the morning sky and nearly evenly spaced in a line with Venus at the Top above Regulus. Mars is below Regulus, and above Jupiter. (see Sky Map)
About an hour before sunrise on October 8th the Moon forms a tight close 2.5° triangle with Venus and Regulus The next morning on October 9, Venus and Regulus are still very close but the Moon has moved on to form another close triangle with Mars and Jupiter.
Jupiter is about is 10° below Venus and Regulus during October 8 and 9.
On the morning of October 10 the Moon is visible below Jupiter and above Mercury, catching up to Mercury on the morning of October 11 about 30 minutes before sunrise. Also on October 10 the Moon is with the star Denebola the bright star marking the Tail of the Lion.
On the morning of October 17 about an hour before the sunrises it will be possible to see Jupiter and Mars within a half a degree. Visually this is a very close conjunction.
By October 25 and 26 at Venus catches up to be within 1.1° from Jupiter marking the last in this series of Venus Jupiter conjunctions that began in June. In 3-2 BC Venus and Jupiter were in close conjunction is probably what later became known as the star of Bethlehem. Venus is dropping in brightness from -4.7 magnitude to -4.5 at the end of October, though clearly Venus always out shines Jupiter.
October 26 marks Venus reaching her furthest stretch from the Sun, also known as greatest elongation from the Sun at 46° in the morning sky. This means Venus is rising about four hours before the Sun. From October 22-29, Venus Mars and Jupiter are within the 5° circle. The morning of October 26 is their closest connection with Venus, Jupiter, and Mars visible within a 3 1/2° diameter.
October ends with Venus and Mars very close to each other approaching their last exact conjunction visible within 1° on November 2.
Mercury’s visibility is most possible starting October 10 or 11 rising about 40 minutes before the Sun. On these days Mercury is about 20° below Jupiter though they are separating rapidly the rest of the month. Mercury reaches greatest elongation in the morning sky on October 16. By the end of October Mercury is -1 magnitude but quite low on the Eastern horizon so not easy to see.
Saturn is the only visible planet in the evening sky, visible just above the SW horizon about 45 minutes after sunset. The Moon passes Saturn on the evening of October 16. Saturn returns to the star Dschubba also known as Beta Scorpii passing only two thirds of the degree from this double star between October 23-27. Saturn is setting about 2.5 hours after the Sun as October begins and is setting less than 90 minutes by the end of October.
This month Uranus is reaching its brightest magnitude of +5.7 though still very difficult to see without a telescope or binoculars. Uranus reaches opposition to the Sun October 11 and 12. This means Uranus is rising as the Sun is setting.
From October 11-25 the zodiacal light is visible up to two hours before sunrise from dark locations at mid Northern latitudes. You may see a tall pyramid of light in the east stretching up towards the twins and towards Venus and and Mars and Jupiter.
This year that Orion’s meteor shower is moderate most active on October 21 -22.
On the morning of October 2 the newly risen waiting crescent moon a cult of Demerol visible in most of North America. This will happen on the west coast has done brightens up before sunrise. On the west coast you’ll see the moon cover algebra world on is frightening and it won’t be quite sunrise even when held around reappears out from the moon. When the moon is waning and the star disappears on the bright sun lit limb and reappears behind the Moons dark limb.
Saturn has returned to Sagittarius and you might be either in or about to be in a Saturn Return if you born within these dates:
December 2, 1926 and November 29, 1929
January 12, 1956 and January 5, 1959
November 16, 1985 and November 11, 1988
Perseus is visible in the NE and E along with Pegasus the winged horse, and Andromeda the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia.
M-31 or Andromeda galaxy is a visible naked eye patch of stars.
Vega was the Pole Star 13,000 years ago and Draco is found between Polaris, the current Pole Star, and Vega. Deneb was the Pole Star about 18,000 years ago.
October 2015 Daily Timings
all time are PDT unless otherwise noted
October 01, Thursday. The Moon passes 8.6 degrees S of the Pleiades as it enters Gemini at 1:03 pm and will be visible beyond of the Pleiades tonight. The Moon in Gemini is transmitting the mysteries of the trickster, the one who tricks the mind and how we see ourselves, who we know ourselves to be and how we think reality works. This is about going beyond our perception of reality as it is now to discover a way of experiencing ourselves and our reality that is liberated from old conceptions, old ideas, old notions.
It isn’t easy to let go the beliefs that have defined our reality. Science is constantly being challenged to open to new discoveries that shake up our reality as we have evolved in understanding about genetics and evolution. For example, we now know that we are not bound by our genetics and that our environment and frame of mind plays a much larger role in our health and well-being than was previously recognized.
October 02, Friday. The Moon occults Aldebaran (10 Gemini), the eye of the Bull, around 5:30 am possibly visible in the morning sky depending on your time zone. This is the tenth time in this series of 49 occultations that will last until September 2018. This series of occultations is accelerating shifts in how we perceive our reality.
In the sign of Gemini, trickster energy is here to shake things up. You might ask yourself what long held beliefs are holding me back? How can I shake up my routines and shake up what it is I think I know? How can I surrender to the place where I know nothing and am open to the infusion of spirit that goes beyond the mind?
October 03, Saturday. Moon enters Cancer at 5:22 pm passing over the Galactic Cross at the Galactic Edge (where the June Solstice Sun rises) tonight opening the Last Quarter Moon Window exact tomorrow. This means the waning Moon is rising around Midnight and will be visible in the morning sky for most of the morning.
October 04, Sunday. The Cancer Last Quarter Moon (11 Cancer 19) is exact at 2:06 pm. Any Last Quarter Moon represents a time to integrate the lessons learned from the old cycle and to let go of whatever does not serve healthy movement into the new cycle. This Cancer Last Quarter Moon is an excellent time for shaking up all the ways we have believed we are meant to do family, especially if you have been in a family that is traditional, conservative and perhaps even judgmental.
As a water sign, connected to the deep feeling realm one way to shake up limiting experiences around family is to go beyond the limits of those experiences to a place of love and acceptance for even the most judgmental and challenging family members.
This is about trying on new ways to feel love in your heart, though not necessarily going to those family members and expressing love for them. It might just be that you are only trying this on only within yourself. Shake yourself out of feeling you have to do something one way or another. Try on the sense or knowing that your family, no matter how it manifests for you, is perfect for your soul’s growth one way or another.
October 05, Monday. The Moon is passing 11.6 degrees S of Pollux as it exits the Sacred Hoop. The twins, Castor and Pollux were known for being the guardians of sailors and for taking part in the quest for the Golden Fleece (a symbol of plenty). They were also known for living half their time on Earth and half their time in the golden homes of Heaven. As we shake up our notion of Heaven and Earth these are wonderful images to entertain. What if we are already living in the golden homes of Heaven here on Earth? What if the reality of Heaven on Earth is only a thought away? What if by truly changing what we think we instantly change our reality?
October 06, Sunday. The Moon enters Leo at 1:31 am transmitting the mysteries of comprehensive divine self-love and sovereignty. How do we shake up our self-perception allowing ourselves to feel more and more pure divine love flowing ever more strongly in our lives? More on Sovereignty and Self-Love HERE
The Sun (13°Libra 00′) square Pluto (13°Capricorn 00′) at 07:14 am in the degrees of the April 2014 Grand Cross. The effects of this alignment are for at least 3 days – yesterday, today and tomorrow and happen once each year. Whenever the Sun is square Pluto after stationing direct (Sep 24) it is a time when Pluto gains forward momentum that shakes up the old and creates space for the new.
Pluto is about surrender or letting go so new possibilities can be birthed. It is helpful to remember there is often a space between what is dying and what is birthing and that often feels like an empty void. This is a natural process and resistance does not stop growth or evolution. The Sun will set on this day and rise again tomorrow – the seasons will change, the years will pass. The exhale always leads to another inhale as long as we are alive in our physical body
If you have planets, angles or nodes between 12.5 and 15.5 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra this is a turning point in your personal Pluto initiation and might even be felt as a time of greater empowerment if you have sufficiently died to, released or surrendered to what was ready to go – be it a point of view, a job, a relationship, a lifestyle etc. If you are still hanging on to what is ready to transform – it may feel more challenging than ever.
Mars (07°Virgo 30′) is opposite retrograde Neptune (07°Pisces 30′) at 07:53 pm. The last time this occurred was on October 19, 2013 when Mars was at 2 Virgo 45 and Neptune was at 2 Pisces 45. Mars is nearing the end of its current two year cycle and is theoretically ready to receive deepening inspiration and insight from Neptune that comes from heightened feelings and sensitivity.
The challenge is for earthy Mars in Virgo to be open to feeling and receiving the guidance that is available especially as it relates to serving the sacred through relating to others as the overtone for this two year Mars Quest that began in April of 2014 and ends in May of 2016 is Libra.
October 07, Monday. Saturn is catching up with Dschubba (2 Sagittarius 34) the eye of the Scorpion exact on October 17 though in close range all this month and next. Saturn has already passed this star twice this year on January 22, and May 7 as part of its 29.5 year cycle. The last time Saturn was here was Aug 6, 1986.
This star marks the eye of the Scorpion (as seen in the image to the left). Some cultures saw this star as the Eye of the Dragon or the crown on the head of the Scorpion. Dschubba is also known as Isidis, a name for the Goddess Isis.
Dschubba or Isidis was also called Iclarkrav coined from the Arabic Iklil al ‘Akrab, meaning the “Crown of the Scorpion”, or sometimes referred to as just Iclil; the Arabic word for ‘jewel’. This was one of the fortunate stations. [Star Names Their Lore and Meaning, by Richard Hinkley Allen p. 367, under Acrab]
If you have planets angles or nodes between zero and six degrees of Sagittarius then you have a personal connection to Dschubba. The old star books describe Dschubba as imparting qualities of a shrewd, cunning mind and great organizational skills, along with a tendency toward strong passions that could lead to relationship issues with the opposite sex.
Shaking up the old ways of looking at the stars is how we develop new relationships with the,. So as the “eye” of perception a question might be – what new perceptions, new ways of looking at life, new beliefs, new questions, might we consider as Saturn, the planet of structure and form contacts this important star? What old perceptions are no longer valid in our current reality? Perhaps this star can now support radical release of anything and everything that holds us back from having a wild and ecstatic relationship with Great Mystery?
October 08, Thursday. Venus moves into Virgo at 10:29 am and the Moon enters Virgo passing 3.2 degrees SSW of Regulus at 12:50 pm, catching up to and occulting Venus (00°Virgo 05′) at 01:01 pm. Occultations accelerate the energy so this is accelerating the release of distortions associated with the 6th chakra descent of the Venus having to do with how we perceive and envision our reality.
Plus, Venus is just 2.5 degrees from Regulus. This is a potent time for working with ceremony, prayer, dance, journeying, visualization, meditation etc for releasing any blocks or distortions you may have in regard to your inner vision and connection to the cosmic overview.
The 6th Chakra is connected to our ability to see multi-dimensionally from a greater cosmic perspective on many levels including the physical and intuitive.
Going outside and seeing the Moon with Venus is one way to connect with this Timing. You can also join in our Venus Tele-class series for community support and other insights about how to gain the most from this powerful Venus Initiation.
Venus is with Regulus, the heart start of the Lion and one of the main Behenian Stars, in this Venus Gate adding extra potency to this gate that also features an occultation of Moon over Venus. This expression of the eight-year Venus cycle only passes by Regulus three times for a window of about 40 years, and this window began in 1975. In 2023 Venus will station retrograde near Regulus but will only make one exact pass by this Royal Star. So this is the last time Venus passes Regulus three times in her Retrograde in our lifetime.
The magnitude of the potential being activated is best engaged with open-hearted Awareness. That being said, there is also a sense of letting go of the old records or the old programs that have been running the Earth’s bio-computer for eons of time. We can participate with this by focusing our intention around releasing any and all old DNA programs that limit our experience of sovereignty and divine self-love. This helps to co-create a new love-based operating system that facilitates powerful harmonic recalibration in direct alignment with the Hall of Records through incoming stellar and galactic evolutionary light codes.
October 09, Friday. The Moon passes about 3 degrees SSW of Mars (09°Virgo 02′) at 07:05 am and then Jupiter (12° Virgo 38′) at 02:24 pm all within less than a 4 degree circular diameter in the morning sky.
Mercury (00° Libra 54′) stations direct at 07:57 am aligned with the North Galactic Pole providing us with an opportunity to receive a message or messages that may shake up all our old ways of relating. Most profound is all important relationship to self as the foundation for healthy relationships with others.
October 10, Saturday. Mercury catches up to the North Node (01°Libra 03′) at 2:49 pm suggesting this month is a potent time for discovering new ways of relating to your life and your destiny. This is also true of the greater of collective destiny of humanity. This won’t happen in Libra again for about 18 years.
So, the question to consider is what seeds are being planted around cooperation and collaboration within us personally and in our collective reality?
Venus (01°Virgo 55′) is square Saturn (01°Sagitarrius55′) at 05:31 pm energizing awareness around the sacred pattern of life that is seeking new forms to express through including the biological circuitry of Earth that has been undergoing a massive recalibration over many years now. This has created an enormous quantum shift in the vibrational signature of the Earth that we are only just beginning to understand.
It is important to be gentle and caring toward ourselves and each other as we continue to experience this vibrational shift. Taking time to tune into the emerging changes within the Earth Grid (or web of life), as well as our own changes, helps us to navigate what might feel disorienting times. We may feel our personal energy and/or our life situations are fluctuating as the old patterns are up leveled to a new more efficient operating system. This is the time for tuning into inner guidance about how to participate in ways that ease these changes through prayer, or meditation, or ceremony, or whatever way works best for you.
October 11, Sunday. Moon enters Libra at 01:45 am and then catches up to the North Node (01°Libra 03′) at 03:54 am. A few minutes later the Moon catches up and occults Mercury (01° Libra 12′) 04:12 am. The Moon transmission connected to humanity’s destiny as it relates to the North Node in Libra and Mercury in Libra is about how we find new ways of doing relationship with each other.
When healthy this goes beyond hierarchal forms of relating to getting that all lives have a gift or message to give and for that reason all lives matter even if it doesn’t seem clear what that is. We are evolving beyond the mistaken importance of an elite few. It is time to make room for all the places on the wheel life and to value them equally.
Jupiter (13°Virgo 03′) trine Pluto (13°Capricorn 03′) 04:51 pm. This is a magical alchemical combination bringing together the sacred with new practical and sustainable ways of honoring the Earth and all life.
October 12, Monday. The Libra New Moon (19°Libra 20′) is exact at 05:06 pm so won’t be visible in the evening sky until October 14. Meanwhile this is a powerful time for energizing new seeds of conscious equal partnership that begins with a healthy relationship in how we view ourselves. This is NOT a conceited point of view that attempts to prove you are okay at the expense of others.
This is about meeting the dark parts of yourself with the same love you have for the parts you consider “good” and creating space within yourself for all your parts to be given equal voice and value. There is much we can learn from the parts we have judged if we are willing to create space for their messages. This doesn’t mean these parts get to run rampant and cause destruction but they do have valuable messages for us when we are willing to listen.
October 13, Sunday. The Moon passes 4 degrees NNE of Spica before entering Scorpio at 02:38 pm. Spica is one of the fixed Behenian stars and the primary star symbolizing the divine feminine located in the constellation of the Virgin Priestess. The Behenian Stars are most potent when planets are within 6 degrees. This month Mercury is with Spica from October 23 to November 2 exact on October 29. The Sun is with Spica from October 8 – 23, exact on Oct 17. Next month Venus and Mars pass by Spica.
According to the book Starlight Elixirs and Cosmic Vibrational Healing by Michael Smulkis and Fred Rubenfeld, Spica has the ability to awaken our awareness bringing the super conscious into the waking conscious mind. This includes enhanced lucid dreaming states and psychic abilities.
Spica connects to the cervical vertebrae in the spine and can help strengthen this part of the body helping reconnect the body and mind. This creates an interchange between the separated selves helping us to remember there is ultimately no separation. Thus our conscious minds are more fully aware of the one reality. http://hilarion.com/stars.html
The Moon amps up these energies as it passes and occults Spica so working with these energies through intention, meditation, prayers, chanting or any other activities that open you to other dimensional experiences are especially potent today. It is important to listen for inner guidance on what will work best for you in tuning into this energy.
Spica – 8 minutes https://cayelincastell.com/wp-content/uploads/audio/spica.mp3
The Sun (18°Libra 30′) is opposite retrograde Uranus (18°Aries 30′) 08:49 pm suggesting the places where we may be stuck or hanging onto to old forms and old desires that do not serve our best interest are being illuminated.
Uranus loves to shake things up and create change through chaos. Whatever has been, we may judge as great or maybe not so great, however this is about allowing life to flow and trusting that it is beyond our ability to know what is best. Therefore, trusting and surrendering, so we are in the flow of the divine plan for our lives is much easier when we release the need to know and embrace the unknown mystery that is taking us where we are meant to be.
October 14, Monday. Mars (13°Virgo 05′) is trine Pluto (13°Capricorn 05′) at 08:36 pm. This is another point of alchemy that is designed to liberate the masculine from old forms that no longer serve in his quest for new ways of relating to himself and to others. This includes the inner masculine for women, and the emerging masculine expression for men. Wholeness happens when we are in conscious relationship to all our parts, inner and outer.
October 15, Thursday. Tomorrow Mercury (3 Libra 47) reaches its greatest elongation of 18.1 degrees from the Sun in the morning sky. This represents the greatest reach of Mercury away from the Sun in its morning star phase. This suggests that Mercury is gathering information to take back to the Sun, the source of life and light, that will be integrated when Mercury leaves the morning sky on November 3 and re-enters the evening sky on December 5.
October 16, Friday. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 02:18 am and passes about 3 degrees N of Saturn (02°Sagittarius 27′) at 07:06 am. This is a time for expanding and even shaking up our Awareness around what we have known is true. The truth changes as our understanding and vibration change. What was true a few years ago, a few weeks ago, a few days ago, or even a few moments ago, may not be what is true for you now, or what will be true for you tomorrow. Here is what Abraham has to say about this:
Everything that has ever been lived, everything that has ever been written down or documented, has been vibration first. Everything has been conjured in vibration first before it manifests. So if something has manifested and you continue to give it your attention, the fact that it is true should really hold no weight with you. The question that we would ask is not, is it true, or is it undeniable? The question that we would ask is, “how does it make you feel when you focus upon it?” And if the answer to the question is, “it doesn’t make me feel very good when I focus upon it,” then we would say, true or not, it does not serve you. And if you will activate a different part of your vibration–the “truth” will shift. ~Abraham Hicks
Venus (02°Virgo 10′) is opposite Neptune (07°Pisces 18′) at 07:53 pm heightening heart inspired creative, intuitive, dreaming energies. The sacred feminine Priestess Queen is connecting to the vast infinite source of Neptune. This enables her to manifest and bring forth her reality in tune with the intuitive guidance Neptune offers, heightening awareness around new visions, dreams and possibilities that otherwise might be missed. This is a time for trusting inner guidance, even when it seems illogical or irrational, for the purpose of bringing forth your heart-felt desires.
October 17, Saturday. Mars is conjunct Jupiter (14°Virgo 11′) at 03:40 pm. This is the first time since May 5, 1980 that Mars and Jupiter have come together in Virgo. At that time they had 3 conjunctions on Dec 15, 1979, again on February 27, 1980 and the last time was May 5, 1980. There was one conjunction of Mars and Jupiter on November 6, 1968 twelve years earlier. It has been 35 years since the two have come together in Virgo.
It will be September 7, 2051 before Mars and Jupiter meet in Virgo again. This is because Mars and Jupiter only connect every two years. Considering the journey of the sacred masculine traveling through Virgo on a quest for sacred relationship this meeting with Jupiter helps to expand what is possible for the sacred masculine in seeking greater wholeness through sacred relating.
The Moon passes about 10 degrees N of Antares today visible beyond Antares tonight. The monthly passage of the Moon in this area of the sky amplifies the light codes or frequencies near the Galactic Core. Visually connecting with the Moon and Antares is one way to tune into these energies. Journeying and/or meditating is also recommended, especially if you cannot visually connect with them.
October 18, Sunday. The Moon moves into Capricorn at 11:52 am crossing the Galactic Cross located near Galactic Center or Hunab Ku as the Mayans call it. This is the place in the sky that marks a release point, where old energies are cast into the center of the Galaxy to die and be reborn. The Moon passes here once each month transmitting the emerging new light codes directly to the Earth. The next couple of days are great for decluttering and getting more organized.
October 19, Monday. The Moon catches up to Pluto (13°Capricorn 08′) at 12:12 pm. Pluto is a planet that is always here to support your greatest possibility of empowerment. However, to be truly empowered you must first face any remaining fears that are driving your choices as those fears limit the choices available to you. To run the maximum amount of life force your circuits must be clean and clear of fear or you might experience a short circuiting of what is really possible for you.
October 20, Sunday. The First Quarter Moon (27 Capricorn 08) is exact at 1:31 pm and then moves into Aquarius at 06:38 pm. This Moon phase inspires new ways of engaging and creating our current reality guided by Capricorn Wisdom. In Lynne McTaggart’s book The Bond she talks about how we got off track with a ‘survival of the fittest’ view of life. This view has fueled and structured our current reality, creating a sense of separation and loneliness.
Lynne talks about new discoveries in biology that are altering our existing view of a separate reality to one that is inter-related to all life. Research suggests that there is a ‘Bond’ or connection “so integral and profound that there is no longer a clear demarcation between the end of one thing and the beginning of another.” Our world does not operate through individual things or even individual people but rather through the connection between everything and everyone – or “the space between things.”
The drive then is not really for separateness or independence but rather for wholeness through connection. This book gives us a new way of looking at how we engage our world so that it operates from what Lynne calls “share, care and be fair.” A strong Capricorn point of view is that “We need some new rules to live by. We need another way to be.” So what actions can we take in this First Quarter Capricorn Moon that support the manifestation of a more cooperative way of being with each other and the planet?
October 21, Monday. Orionids Meteor Shower Peaks. This shower features about 10 to 20 meteors per hour. This year the waxing Moon sets before the main event begins as there are more meteors from about mid-night to dawn. These are fast-moving meteors that occasionally leave persistent trains of light in their wake and at times produce bright fireballs that crackle and sizzle across the night sky.
These meteors appear to be coming from the hand of Orion, just north of Betelgeuse. EarthSky.org says the best time to see this meteor show will be just before dawn on October 22. The days before and after may also be good if out after midnight and before dawn.
October 22, Thursday. Mercury (13°Libra 10′) is square Pluto (13°Capricorn 10′) at 02:22 pm in the last of three that began Sep 9, Sep 24 and today. Both Mercury and Pluto are in the degrees of the Grand Cross that took place in April 2014. This is a powerful activation furthering what was put into motion at that time. Find out more here in an interview I did back in March and HERE is a short 11 minute video on the Grand Cross.
These three encounters of Mercury and Pluto are helping to deconstruct all outmoded forms of hierarchy creating chaos. Clearly this is a messy process bringing up a lot of fear for those who feel they are losing their positions of power. This is a necessary death process that will happen no matter who much we resist it. On the other side is a rebirth into a healthy sustainable reality that honors the generations that have come before, and supports the generations yet to come.
The Moon enters Pisces at 10:18 pm suggesting the next two or three days are a great time for energizing the mysteries of inspired dreaming through the conscious use of our imagination. Healthy Pisces serves the divine through compassionate sacred service and inner intuitive listening, receiving cues from the external world, but ultimately acting from an inner place of knowing.
October 23, Friday. Venus (13°Virgo10′) is trine Pluto (13°Capricorn 10′) at 12:33 am energizing the empowered feminine Priestess in finding new sustainable and sacred practices that care for the Earth.
Mars (17°Virgo31′) is opposite retrograde Chiron (17°Pisces 31′) at 01:48 am supporting the sacred Masculine in healing the wounds of the patriarchy that has limited the acceptable expression of the masculine to a primarily warrior archetype. Mars in Virgo is the archetype of the Priest, the healer, the one who has a sacred work.
The Moon catches up to Neptune (07°Pisces12′) at 10:17 am. The Piscean expression of self-less service, mystical union, devotional surrender, and the visionary dreamer knows that to create a new reality it is not about trying to change what IS but rather flowing with the changes that are intended to further our evolution.
The Pisces Neptune way is to imagine or dream up a new model, a new world, a new awareness that replaces the existing reality.
Sun enters Scorpio at 10:47 am traveling through this area of the sky until Nov 22 illuminating the shamanic mysteries of death and rebirth, conscious manifestation, and empowered life force energy that occurs when we are allowing ourselves to shake things up. Walk the edges of what feels safe and explore new territory for the purpose of finding greater aliveness.
October 24, Saturday. The Moon catches up to retrograde Chiron (17°Pisces 29′) at 03:09 am and then moves into Aries at 11:22 pm. In the Piscean realm of infinite possibilities and the Chiron realm of healing it may be useful to consider where we can go deeper into what it will take to truly heal our personal and collective emotional heart, offering all the pain we have every experienced into the alchemical cauldron as a way to fuel the New Earth of Peace and Plenty for all where we live in cooperation that nurtures greater love rather than competition that fosters hurt and hatred.
October 25, Sunday. Europe ends Daylight Time. Retrograde Vesta returns to Pisces at 3:17 am. Vesta stations direct on November 14 and then returns to Aries on December 3. This is re-animating the sacred healing potential that exists within each of us when we are committed to doing whatever it takes to forgive ourselves and others.
Venus meets with Jupiter (15°Virgo 39′) at 1:03 pm and very near Mars (19 Virgo) and getting ready to pass by Denebola (23 Virgo) the tail of the Lion. Venus is still quite bright at -4.4 magnitude outshining Jupiter at -1.8 magnitude. If you are up in the morning this is worth seeing before sunrise.
Mercury (17°Libra 57′) is opposite retrograde Uranus (17°Aries 57′) at 3:59 pm adding to the unpredictable nature of this time. Unexpected messages that change your point of view are possible now.
October 26, Monday. The Moon catches up to and occults retrograde Uranus (17°Aries56’) at 03:57 am. This is the 16th occultation of the Moon over Uranus since last year with two more to go in this series of 18, activating and expanding our sense of what is possible in new and innovative ways. Taking decisive, intuitive action (Aries) inspires unexpected, surprising events that are somehow totally aligned with exactly what is needed for further growth and evolution.
This is due to the unpredictable ways of Uranus that have been accelerated by this series of occultations, designed to produce what Terrance McKenna referred to as “events of extreme novelty” that radically shift our current perception (or assemblage point) most likely around whatever our perceived mission in life currently is.
Then the Moon enters Taurus at 11:07 pm reaching perigee or closest approach to the Earth about 23 hours before the Full Moon. This perigee is not as close as last month when it happened within less than an hour of the Full Moon. However, the rising Moon still may seem larger than normal.
Venus is at her greatest elongation (46.4 degrees) from the Sun in the morning sky having stretched as far as she can stretch before the Sun. What insights is Venus gathering to take with her on her journey back to the Sun, the source?
October 27, Sunday. Venus (17°Virgo 24′) opposes retrograde Chiron (17°Pisces24′) at 7:07 am accessing compassion as the key to initiation including deeply feeling what needs to be felt. This is often challenging and difficult especially if there are feelings that have been repressed and denied.
How do we feel the feelings that haven’t been fully felt? This does not suggest it is about acting on feelings of anger, rage, hurt, revenge, getting even, or punishing others for your pain and suffering. Rather it is about feeling what you feel so it can be released and forgiveness can occur in a genuine way, including forgiving unforgivable acts of betrayal either toward yourself or from others. The power of forgiveness and love forever transforms any and all wounds, helping to turn them into our medicine, our strength, our ability to help and heal others simply by an example of one who has successfully navigated the journey.
Taurus Full Moon (3 Taurus 45) exact at 5:05 am illuminating the mysteries of sacred pleasure experienced fully in the body. Taurus is happiest when enjoying physical, sensual pleasure as a way of experiencing the divine. When we are open to the divine experience of pleasure it recalibrates the Earth’s return to the harmonic of the Garden of Earthly Delight. The Taurus Full Moon reminds us that opening to receive love-directed miracles increases our chances of experiencing them more regularly.
October 28, Monday. The Moon enters Gemini 11:24 pm passing 8.5 degrees S of the Pleiades for the second time this month. (see October 1) When the Moon is in Gemini it is transmitting the mysteries of Crazy Wisdom that remind us not to take us ourselves so seriously. Healthy Gemini knows the mind cannot possibly know everything so it is helpful to be open to the trickster energy that loves to shake up fixed ways we have of being in our reality. Chuang Tse gives us this bit of Crazy Wisdom as a reminder that our point of view is not necessarily right or wrong, it is not necessarily true or untrue…
Right is not right. So is not So. Because, if right were really right, it would differ so greatly from not right that there would be no need for argument. If so were really So, it would differ so greatly from not so that there would be no need for argument. ~ Chuang Tse
October 29, Thursday. Mercury is about 4 degrees from Spica in the Morning Sky and the Moon occults Aldebaran for the second time this month and the 11th time in this series. (see October 2 for more on Aldebaran occultation)
Mercury with Spica shakes up our perception and beliefs around how we relate to ourselves, each other and especially the divine feminine. As Mercury passes this Magical Star there are downloads that can come through dreams, unexpected conversations, something we read or better yet experiences that come from beyond the mental realms. Mercury, Sun and Spica are a trio with an ability to embrace physic ability and information coming to us from our dreaming states.
Remember, what is happening in the Great Above is reflected in the Great Below and what is happening in the Great Below is reflected in the Great Above as they are one and the same thing.
This month Mercury is with Spica from October 23 to November 2 exact today. Remember the Sun is with Spica from October 8 – 23, exact on Oct 17 and next month Venus and Mars will pass by Spica.
October 30, Friday. Sun (07°Scorpio 07′) is trine retrograde Neptune (07°Pisces 07′) at 2:06 pm signaling the slowing of Neptune to its station direct on November 18. If you have planets or angles from 7 to 10 degrees of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius you have been in a Neptune initiation cycle.
When Neptune is trine the Sun just prior to stationing direct it is accessing the source point where all creation arises. This is where we have the opportunity to dream into our physical reality from the realm of formless form also known as the “field of all possibilities”. During this time for about three or four weeks it is possible to capture a vision from this unlimited field of pure potential. If the vision is strong enough, and feels alive enough for you then it can be brought into physical form.
October 31, Saturday. Happy All Hallows Eve. Eve of All Saint’s Day – Halloween a.k.a Hallowmas or All Hallows Eve. Hallow in middle English means holy and Halloween means hallowed evening or Holy Night. There was a time when Halloween was not a set date on the Calendar but rather it was celebrated on the Full Moon nearest the exact astrological cross-quarter now on November 7. This year the Full Moon closest to this date is October 27.
The Celtic New Year is known as Samhain (pronounced sow-in…sow pronounced as wow). The cross-quarter between the Autumnal Equinox and the Winter Solstice is when the veil between the worlds is thinnest as we access alternate realities and timelines. Approaching this holy time with reverence and clear intent is highly recommended.
Moon enters Cancer 2:09 am crossing the Galactic Cross at the Galactic Edge visible in the constellation of the Twins tomorrow morning transmitting the light codes coming in from beyond our Galaxy. This is a time for being gentle, accepting, and nurturing toward yourself, and to ask for support in finding resolution to any addictive or destructive patterns that may affect your life or the lives of those you love.
