October comes with healing and very loving energies to support us before we begin a new cycle, for we are in the last phase of this 2021 changing year. This is a phase for us to work on stabilization and balance, attributes that will be key during the next year 2022, as it is also a 6 universal year. A year that comes to soothe us and help us anchoring our new lives, after a year of constant change and integration.
A six universal frequency that indicates love, harmony, and restoration. Something essential, on both a personal and a planetary level, after the turmoil experienced for the last two years. Number six is represented by the tarot card of the Lovers, which to me, is not just about physical relationships but about the inner union, between opposites, that has to occur before it happens with another being. Balanced relationships or enlightened ones, come when first we love ourselves and act, at all times, as integrated and whole beings, for it is by acquiring perfect equilibrium and inner unity, that we can truly merge with another with integrity and equality.
At a cosmic level, we begin this new month by having Neptune quintile True Node. This will help us expand into our empathic nature, by communing with our intuition and therefore connecting with everything and everyone that is also part of us and that is co-creating and experiencing this human journey with us. It is precisely by becoming more sensitive and empathic that we begin to remember unity again, after a long time of experiencing what individualization feels like.
In a six universal month, and soon within another six universal year, this Libra Moon comes to activate the energies of harmony and balance that will be very present the next year that we are about to welcome soon. A Moon that also occurs on a day 6 of October 6 at 13 degrees Libra, together with Pluto direct again. The Libra Moon also conjunct Mars, which is about our personal power and how we direct it.
Together with Pluto, we are going to have a wonderful opportunity to regain our sovereignty using this force to build, heal and restore, as many times if we are not balanced, we can channel this mighty energy in the form of unhealed anger and other emotions such as frustration and confusion.
This Moon is about precisely balancing our impulsiveness, something that Libra’s energies will help us with, and learn how to act from an empowered space rather than from a reckless one that often results in manifesting undesired outcomes.
On the next day, Venus will enter Sagittarius. Venus, the Planet of Love and Abundance in Sagittarius is going to help us liberating ourselves from toxic relationships and from anything that is still keeping us from experience what true and unconditional love is as well as to cease old behaviors that limit us, not just regarding abundance but in all aspects of ourselves and lives.
Sagittarius, the traveler of the zodiac, is always eager to explore new territories, as it always has an open mind, therefore, if we truly desire to experience love, not the egoic one but the authentic Divine Essence that is within us and in All within Creation, we should leave behind what is comfortable, walk an unknown path, and begin to release all the ideas that keep us from experiencing what love truly means.
There are no frontiers with Venus in Sagittarius, not in love, not in being free, and not in expressing our hearts. This is a path to walk in unity, freedom, and in love with All, and in the moment that we impede ourselves to experience love in that selfless way, is when we finally are able to broaden our horizons and begin to experience what true liberation feels like.
On October 8th, Ceres will turn retrograde. We begin this loving month with another invitation, to express our hearts and personal truth lovingly. Ceres represents the mother and all that it creates from a selfless space of unconditional love to All – abundance, nurturance, and care. When it resides in Gemini we are being reminded of the importance of cultivating our mind, but also to express our thoughts and feelings, as it is pivotal that we express ourselves with love and respect to everyone and their personal choices, especially at a time when many are yet oscillating in the fear that is being created, and hence, in the panic, it generates. This is about caring for others, in a way that everything that we put out through our words, acts, or in any other ways, is done through love and great care, independently of their’s choices.
A few days later, on October 10 Saturn will be direct again. Well-known is already my belief about not focusing on retrogrades but on the authentic Essence of the Planet and how it aligns with other forces. As I try to act with integrity, I can simply share the proper astrological information about the planets, for you to interpret it on your own.
To me, whether retrograde or not, Saturn, which is a mighty force, helps us to take responsibility for our personal choices, and hence the reality that we build when we act accordingly, erasing unconscious acts, by simply seeding love wherever we go and with whoever we meet, for this is how we erase the so-called “karma”, which is nothing but the unconscious acts we did, when we possessed a different level of consicousness.
Saturn helps us to align with our authentic will and manifest it in the tangible, where we came to master ourselves as creators, remembering that mistakes are nothing but the mastering of the egoic self and that the more we learn from these actions and choose to always act within Divine love, the more that we will understand Saturn’s essence, one that we all have within, as all we see in the macro is a representation of what happens within ourselves too.
On October 18 Jupiter will turn direct too. This will be for many a sign for them to begin working on expansion, although Jupiter is always a force that if we know how to integrate, can serve us to expand into our soul desires, and step into new horizons. This is a month for us to create balance, and with Jupiter, we can extend the many ways in which we can create more harmony and love within and into our lives.
On this same day too, we also have Mercury direct again as well. This is, as I incessantly repeat, another illusion we have from Earth. The belief that it slows us down has been created within the collective and fed for eons, and it is now that only a few are choosing to disengage from it and begin to take charge of their own life experience.
Mercury is about communication, expression, and working with our mental plane. It is a wonderful planet for us to align with and work with all we need to dissolve, on a mental level, clear, or if we have done this inner work, learn how to communicate from a space of clarity and love with ourselves, and the Illumined Realms. By no means Mercury or any other force within the Universe has the power, neither the intention, to slow us or do anything to us, for this is another false belief that has been deeply implanted and that shall be released, for the time for us to break from old beliefs, and regain freedom, has finally come.
Almost at the end of the month, on October 20, we have a Full Moon in Aries. Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac, rules the self. It is during this moon, as guides shared, where the ones that need to clear their genetic bloodlines will benefit from it, as Aries rules the first chakra and everything that anchors us to earth, to our families, and to the traumas and wounds that we carry related to it. It is a time for us to clear survival fears, blood distortions, reptilian undesired inherited essences and programs, and all karmic, so to speak, attachments.
Finally, on October 23 the Sun enters Scorpio, together with Mars that will do the same on October 30. The Sun into this Water sign invites us to visit the depths of our being, navigating through our inner waters to illuminate those dark corners through the wisdom we have regained during all this time and embrace the “dark” aspects that are also a part of who we are and Creation – that makes us whole and One with All.
A time to look within to receive all the revelations that these last months bring to us, as the last part of this year, will show us where we are going, as well as new ways of being of assistance, which is of great importance to change direction if the timeline we have chosen no longer resonates with our true destination.
In October we find ourselves crossing the threshold to a new destination. It is this a month for us to commune with our Illumined Self, ponder about our journey, all we have learned, all we still need to clear, and all we desire to create next.
This is why during this month it is so important to remain in a space of peace and harmony, so we can discern about what we are going to create next, from a space of calmness, and a higher understanding.
We have spent the majority of this year in a constant integration phase, followed by the proper descension of wisdom. It is then now the time for us to stabilize all we have previously embodied, and know how to use all the directions and guidance received, for the conscious creation of our new path, one that we never walk alone, as there are many others, both physical and non-physical beings/forces, that co-create it with us and that we shall honor too.
A month to retrieve personal power, so we can begin manifesting from a space of sovereignty and hence complete responsibility. For we recognize ourselves now as creators, healers, and masters of our own human life experience, giving no power to outer forces, and as such we shall act.
I wish you all a loving and harmonic October, Beloved Ones!
Within Infinite Love,
